I, Capricorn

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 ...

The day she found herself 

entry picture

Breaking all the shackles

Throwing away all the chains

that were holding her

she finally got rid of the  pain

 

She drew strength

just  from within

that was the day she found herself

and realized chasing dreams was not a sin

 

Pleasing everyone

was not her wish anymore

focusing on herself

became her aim of soul

 

It was very taxing

To identify her tr...

Motivation

For a poem about motivation

I find myself lacking real inspiration.

 

After a period of procrastination

It’s become a source of great frustration.

 

Is this real artistic creation

Or just intellectual masturbation?

 

But following quiet contemplation

I had a sudden revelation:

 

What I am lacking is

The title.

As always he was relaxed and confident,

smiling, and with good reason - he always beats me

My normal strategy is damage limitation

Today was different, I had motivation

I hadn't played for a month

I was feeling good, no aches and pains

I had a new racquet with tight strings

I had new tennis shoes

I had nothing to lose

 

It started well - I took the first game to love

Letter to You

Letter to you,

Words of wisdom,

If I may.

Don’t fall for the irony

That my reflection

Lacks a map of my life.

My beautiful child,

Let me remind you,

That every time you smile,

Every drop of laughter

That you place in this world,

Means something,

To someone,

Somewhere,

Somehow.

Let’s remember

That people do

Amazing things each day.

Now not to di...

Shouty Face

I think that you are quite unique,

From ear to ear, then down to feet

Sat atop your mind you speak,

Sometimes funny, sometimes sweet

 

Lots of people seem the same,

They live their lives and play their games

Now and then they use their brains

But not too often, ain't that insane?

 

You are you and that's what matters

So ignore, the chitter chatter

Small minded t...

Don't forget the reason why they fought

Don't forget the lesson that was taught

Buried so deep into the earth 

We call them layers of our foundations

The past to our future and the taint of our present

Our ancestors, falling forefathers and delicate mothers

 

Making moves to the hills 

Making mountain from valley

Making home where we go

Advice to a poet

Take your time

Don't just try to rhyme

Put meaning into every line

No, it doesn't have to come out right

Just write

It's fine

Every piece reviewed and refused can later be renewed 

Break it down and then stick it together with crazy glue

Don't mind if they call you crazy - you

You are an idealist in the realist eyes

But they fail to realize

Reality is dynamic

Keep on Movies

Action pack

Thiller like Mike Jack

PG-13 Comedy - Captain Jack 

Eyes on the sparrow 

Keep on movies 

Neglecting duties 

The horror

The drama

No worry

It's Sci-fi

No hurry

Keep on movies

Romance

Film-noir

A mystery adventure of the first world war

History keeps on moving

But you keep on movies

Hours of our lives in front of a screen

At Least

No matter how harsh the road might be

At least I walk upon it

No matter how harsh the last day was

At least the next day greets me

 

No matter how dark the day might be

At least there is still day

No matter how deluded, horrible,

Sadistic or rude people are

At least there are still people

 

No matter how they might make me feel

At least I can still feel

Day In/Day Out

The time of labor start once one clocks in

as the money is important for survival.

Better to have it than being flat broke.

Despite what those on the outside peeping in may say,

this man right here isn't flipping patties for nothing.

For he longs to return to his life back home,

which ran smooth like molasses

then snapped in half like a pair of glasses.

As the infallible re...

PAUSE

entry picture

Why do we worry so much about tomorrow;

When we can do so much today.

Why do we cry for those who are leaving;

Forgetting the ones who stay.

Why do we long for that which we cannot have;

Without appreciating what we already possess.

We live life in a rush and often miss out so much,

We dwell on dreams and mistakes;

And live the present in a haze.

Take a pause and feel th...

Gone Till April

Hope I make the most of my gifts. 

I'd be damned if I stayed the same person I was a year ago

Willing to work for mine, fuck a handout.

Whether it be a full-time nine to five or freelance, I'm gunning

for the top where I oughta be.

Not a rapper, just a brother presenting a gift for the world to see

possibly change someone's life.

All I want is for my family and my girlfriend t...

Above, Beyond

entry picture

The morning, crisp and broken by the curfew
Of rising larks and pigeons in the choir,
Its breaching sun is bursting through the grass dew
And thinning out the misty dawn's perspire.
Many rest upon their linen sheets around
And you, the only currently arise,
Solo is your ally when breaking the ground;
Undistracted, undisturbed - your alibis.

Your muscles twitch uncertain of their purpose,
Or whether purpo...

I Break Everything I Touch

entry picture

I break everything I touch; At first seemingly simple- But soon too much, For my games are so nimble. My feelings out of reach- always too far to touch. And not made known through speech; I am an observer- I keep my distance; I am not a conformer- And at times lack resistance. I speak my words carefully, I am a reformer- And I shall go about it tastefully, Though always be straig...
