We must never be ruled by our circumstances.
We must follow our hearts and follow our chances.
No matter how hopeless. No matter how late.
Know that we are special and we can become great.
We must also know that hope does exist.
So know that we are free and this will persist.
Take down those books from our mind's bookshelves
And ponder those wise words as we read to ourselves.

I found my bliss
Heading south on the A23
She’s a rollerskate
He’s a magnet
Like the easy way
Water slides down your throat.
Me, a pearl of existence
Gently cooking in this black car
Heat. From July. Discomfort
In the way my baths
Are always stifling.
A glissando of tyres
Droning down to the coast
Under a weatherless sheet
Of baby blue...

The barbs of your tongue
Cut me to shreds
Unpicking my mind's
Most delicate threads
So I weaved myself words
From the pit of my soul
To replace all the light
And the joy you had stole
Then I ripped myself free
From your talons of spite
Spilling ink upon page
Under dawn's weary light
And I bled, intravenous
Through roots of my mind

When you looked me in the eyes, I wanted to feel your love
To feel the love that you said, was gone
I wanted to believe with all my heart that you would come back...
I wanted to believe that I could be enough
I wanted to believe that we could grow together but the truth is, it was all an illusion created by a stubborn heart,
Instead, I let you close and you hurt me, broke me, and ra...

As this feeling
I feel in my chest
And the emotions
I stop to wonder
When will it go
Is my best friend
My closest enemy
And asks one million
Within my mind
Of those around
Please let me be
I do not

I wanna look out
I wanna go where
my thoughts go
But I can't get out of
my bed though
A sad little
one trick pony
Waiting for someone
to phone me
To tell them this condition
don't own me
I dream about
Simply getting up
and walking out
Seeing what this beautiful
Filling my lungs and...

If you find yourself with awful luck.
And that in the deepest hole are firmly stuck.
If you feel from it you'll never rise,
That the world is cruel and harsh in your eyes.
If you feel there'll never be a tomorrow,
And you'll never leave your path of sorrow.
If you feel your life has no point or reason,
And it's loose ends will never find completion.
You must know that life is always ch...

Its spine slithered, snake-like
around the corpse of my soul
Her withered tongue extracting
from life , what I had stole
For the beast must be seen!
For there is
no tomorrow !
Such a flaying shall occur
In the pits of our despair !
Rotting eyes weeping!

I have no faith, yet
in this foreign church
I find solace,
I never expected
to need such a place,
but I sought it out.
A stranger to its ways,
I sit in silence, alone.
Its echoing ambience
City noise and bluster
muffled by centuries-old stone;
it welcomes and warms.
A refuge, I rest:
No more voices.
I can breathe here.
I can be here.

Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong
Teach your students colors,shapes, letters, numbers, teach them about life, and now keep them safe from guns
Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong, remember you are a teacher
Teach your students to not be afraid, yet in your heart you know the world is again...

The buds now open, sun dispels the dark
The nights of bat give way to morning lark.
And as we emerge, blinking, into the light,
Brim full with fright, and delight,
Apprehensive, yet pensive of all we have faced
And what may lie ahead, braced
Despite it all, against the odds
We hold hands aloft, with fingers crossed.
When threads seem thin which hold...

I think I need a jacket
It's getting very cold
I'll have a look online
It's very easy, so I'm told
I'm not sure that I like it
It feels like it's quite forced
As I swipe through all the options
But there's some I like of course
The first one was suitable,
The pockets just too shallow,
Number three felt like a winner,
Better suited to another fellow
I sometimes sit and...

Sometimes justice does not prevail,
And life becomes unfair.
Sometimes the hardest workers fail,
And hope turns to despair.
Sometimes we see the fat cats thrive,
And the little people do then suffer.
Sometimes the careless do survive,
While judicious lives do become tougher.
Sometimes punished are the good,
While the sinful are rewarded.
Sometimes the best are misunderstood
And the ...

To hold you in my arms one last time
To feel your touch even though I knew you weren’t really mine
To feel your lips touch mine and again feel your love
Hoping, dreaming, wishing I could bring you back
Hoping, dreaming, wishing to fix this shattered heart
But a touch, a kiss, my love wasn’t enough
You’re not coming back
And it’s clear now
Your love is ...
