Ignorance is bliss

So I guess that they've imprisoned us into this predetermined preposition 

When the truth is there so blatantly but we can't help but not to listen 

Because ignorance is bliss so we'll stay blissfully unaware 

As to the GMO's in all our food and the geo engineering in the air 

I suppose we'll go organic and refuse the water from the tap 

What about the metals likened to a subtle che...

And I want to be a better man to you mum.. .

But you just don't agree with the things I have done, while I don't agree with having

to be socially accepted I need to conform, but you don't understand. 

 

I live for myself in a flurried world.

 

Where being myself is such a crime and I can't imagine myself alive, at the thought of  cheating my own mind... 

It breaks me apart!

Aiming

Aiming for nothing but net,
that is, a net worth of one billion George Washington
Dollar bills paying off these utility bills and moving up to Beverly Hills

Aiming to satisfy my lust and greed, but yet 
I feel this birth curse called sin, weighing me down like a ton
a ton of bricks falling back to back on my back - dying of cheap thrills!

Aiming to turn this all around

The Gentrification Scheme 2017

entry picture

My funeral is a live cremation
My home is a burnt out tower
My plight is that of a nation
One of selfish gits wielding power

I am a ghost haunting the streets
My home is your left or right wing tv show
My place is within the gentrification scheme
Lost somewhere I don't know

I raise my voice to be silenced
My concerns are shit on the heel of your shoe
There's money in death and violen...

Normalcy Bereft

They rewrote songs on the sceneries of their dreams,

under the same roof, in the same room, but alone.

Living in each other’s isolations,

so tiring, boring, sensual, overwhelming, warm.

In thoughts, several severely intimate moments had passed;

their knotted minds kissed intermittently, not seldom.

 

He knew he was boundless, liberal, enraged, , jealous, dizzy,

Sex Overlooking The Sunset

It was surprising that after work, on Thursday,

she wanted to meet and share her bed with a man, again.

Maybe men, even, she thought, suddenly indecisive and guilty,

but for society, men, peers, their judgment, their pursed lips and nods of disapproval.

Now that she was almost home, her fireplace and Scotch seemed dearer, as usual;

the icy blanket of her acceptance of undesired celi...

Afraid of Society

entry picture

Born as an outsider

Live like a lone wolf

 

Scare of playing with others

Good chance I might humiliating myself

 

So I sit next to my window

Watching the world having fun without me

Dying to break out of my soul

The fear takes control of my soul

 

The quietest of a room

Can give me company

But it doesn’t fill

The void of loneliness I feel

Welcome to a place so secret and scarce, where love dwells and people swear.

A place where allusion is key to misleading love and people all around hide from the truth.

Welcome to a place where tennis shoes have thrones and your own shoes carry pillows.

Welcome to a place where boys and girls portray men and women, but the parents don’t know they started the trend.

Welcome to a place w...

Domestic Drama (Part 1)

I know better
so why don't I do better?
Be angry and sin not 
that's what the word says
obscene language, 
that's what the world says 
I'm tired and cranky 
and frankly,
I just want to lie in bed 
but lo and behold!
She is sleeping there 
like Snorlax or Goldilocks 
and I'm suppose to bear this?

too tired to fume 
want to sweep this away

A GOOD OR BAD PAST

A ‘GOOD’ OR ‘BAD’ PAST?

Pleased I am that born I was when I was
A time when even though war threatened, and, did occur
Real freedom did exist, or, the alternative was not recognised
Poverty was rife but was borne with the belief in community
Never was there the expectation of improvement by government intervention
For every inconvenience which did, or might, blight aspects of our lives

Mirror

you would not believe how easy it is to break a mirror!
and we're not talking the ones that you see in the clearance sections at stores,
we're talking about the mirror that shows you how you think about yourself.

this mirror is one made of a very special glass,
one that comes in all different shapes and sizes for every person,
one that is very often...fragile.

The Dulled Compass

The Dulled Compass

 

     Humanity has not recoiled,

It’s still gorging on new found psychologies,

New found violations that incarcerate a soul;

     New found paradoxes,

New found sentences for innocent rejoice!

 

There is no rebuke,

No counterpoint - no random assertions,

No incriminations – just you, and I.

 

And you’re there,

Pitching a battle for authori...

Separation

i love you. and i want you in my life, forever and always.
and that's that.

but there are always dark masses that get in the way,
metal bars that prevent our love from seeping through,
and that's that.

we were separated by these bars and I reached out,
trying to kiss you through the small openings between the rungs
but like a slap across the face the cold metal parted us,
and that's th...

The Neuroscience of Cryptographic Numerology

I'm the neuroscientist, working on your tiredness

She's inspired and defies the liars despite the lack of confidence

Recklessly they beg and breed, they see the need for love and peace

They pieced together these policies that aren't for you or me.

 

Leave us in our anarchy, we'll make the best of what we need,

Survivalists in spite of greed, we wipe our sins by smoking weed.

The Storm of Boredom and Greed

When life tries to test ya, create a light just like Tesla

Cremate the fate of your future, try losin the truth, it’ll catch ya

So loosen the noose of attention, and form a slew of intentions

And use your noodle to doodle your message on the edge of invention

 

Be the new innovation, that renews situations

If I was to meet E.T.

Welcome to my planet,

but certainly not my world.

 

How far have you travelled?

Come it's warm inside,

Did your journey take long?

 

Oh don't worry yourself,

So what's your planet called?

We call ours the Earth.

Do you name the stars?

Have you created your world?

Because our world is the world,

something i must hide

Breasts are something to be ashamed of, something to hide,
Yet something that a kid will suck on just to stay alive!
Something everyone once depended on once in their life
Yet something evil, something I must hide
A man's nipples are useless and yet just fine
The woman's are lewd tho to a hungry baby divine

To wear one layer of clothing!

Textures of shame

Glass sides tip away the hope of perception and cameras flash away any hint of reflection
at this hub of metal minds and stiff bodies.


This soft grey raven digs for existence among the steel nest of discardment.
Every sip a taste of us, our residue his everything.

Around me, gold fingered bird-watchers with their fogged up binoculors,
tasting their uncessary glory.
Molten pride down th...

He’s calling out to you and me to show some solidarity

And march beside the TUC. Defend the Union man!

Today all talk a lot about Pussy Riot,

The girls from Russia that couldn’t keep quiet.

OK, I agree! It’s their right to fight

With the things they don’t like.

I can understand any strike.

Even when you have to take a gun,

But … sorry to say that,

I condemn their action as the dirtiest one.

They’ve become the world known heroines

You can't get tits on a kindle,

so put that Amazon one down.

You really look silly with that massive phone kid,

On looking back,

How did we ever remain so naïve?

Why did we ever believe we would

Change the world?

That when scrutinized up close -

When digging down deep beneath

The aesthetics and false promise

You’ll find; it’s not the society you want -

Summer is starting to set in. Goals are being formed. We have made many in the past and failed to accomplish them. Achievements don't go unnoticed. Though, as we grow older, wiser, more dedicated to ourselves and others' involvement in our craft, we see a need for commitment. If we are setting goals for ourselves with a half assed ambition to finish them, then that is all we are left with. Diss...

The association of wealth

if we looked at history

we shall find that at any given
period, no matter the advancement
there inevitably at a cost lay revealed
atrocities, genocides, discrimination
prejudices, and a lack of conscience

Scarlet on Blue

Invisible but not voiceless,
This fire within me burning;
Fueled by things long since done;
Uncertain it would continue

And most certainly would one day end.

Resounding vermillion trains,
Travelling across frontier lands;
That began by fits and starts.
But this is just the beginning,

And most certainly is not the end.

Smearing the silence with my thoughts:
