I, Capricorn

entry picture

Don't try to stop me

You can't and I won't

Stopping at nothing

I'll get what I want

Failure is not an option 

That I choose to accept

You cannot deter me 

While I still have breath

My vision is clear

My desires are true

Unwavering passion

Will guide me through

Stopping at nothing

I'll get what I want

Don't try to stop me

You can't and I won't

I will ...

Battle Cry

You think you rule this whole damn town
But I can tell you for sure, I'm stealing the crown
You may have won before, but I won't back down
I deserve to finally be free now.

You walk with attitude, like women in heeled shoes
But it doesn't take a genius to know you haven't got a clue
You fought well though, so don't feel blue
When you see the tables turning, against you.

You think you r...

Sadness Slain

Sadness Slain

 

Endurance is salvation’s gift,

To help your inner spirits lift,

Don’t let fear blockade the door,

Have the ambition to explore,

Defeat is something to toughen your skin,

Keep on fighting and you will win,

To overcome with great speed,

Neptune’s fury you shall need,

With power and dominance in the mix,

Let temperance hold your mortal wish,

Sancti...

Yours and mine

Your,

 

PhD

out-brains me

 

Tits and thighs

out-lay me

 

Mum and Dad

out-pay me

 

Elocution

out-say’s me

 

My,

 

Determination

scares you

 

Confrontation

dares you

 

Dazzling wit

impairs you

 

I’d 

crush you if I cared to

 

But I don't

so won't

 

All life

is strife

THE BALLAD OF THE LOOPY HAMSTER

entry picture

"You'll be safe, I promise", reassured his mum.

“But its not you who’ll end up sat on your bum!”

A conversation they’d had most every week

but it didn’t make his knees feel any less weak.

 

“Now come along, Harry, stop messing about,

go finish your homework whilst I clean up this house.

The show doesn’t start till the end of the week

and all this chatter is making me Squeak...

Confession

Kept convincing myself

 end would turn out fine

 

Fazed but withstanding

implore for a visible sign

 

Trudge turned Incessant

with reserves at very last

 

Stretched to the optimum

leaving me plainly aghast

 

Events turned divergent

 expectations got belied

 

Means while just perfect

 but to end never applied

 

Resolve nearly exhausted

on p...

The Slow Boy

The teachers told him not to dream too big,
That his talents lay somewhere other than Arithmetic,
That English would never be so kind,
As to reveal its secrets to his young mind,
That History was better served,
By someone who could steer its curves,
That Science was a distant star,
So he shouldn't try to reach too far.

Maybe because he was so slow,
He didn't listen to them blow,
But to...

Resolve

entry picture

A narrative poetic thought.

 

.

 

 

 

 
 
 
Aye, living & achieving freedom
requires an openness to vulnerability,
to taste fear & persevere.
 
There are those that would take away
our liberty & even our life.
Nothing is free, we pay dearly even just to breathe.
 
It takes guts and determination,
then finally we become awar...
