Move on / Build a Better You
Time moves forward
It never turns back
So why do we spend so much time
Stuck living in the past
Mistakes are only natural
Issues and problems to resolve
Without mistakes, problems and issues
We never would evolve
So try and be more positive
There’s nothing left to lose
The world is at your feet
Just walk the path you choose
Hold your head up high

what is it I’m trying to do here?
“your poetry is beautiful”
“you should be proud of yourself”
If only I never hid away.
If only I was still 7,
then it would be acceptable.
If I had opened up back then,
I would have had people falling over themselves
to make me feel better.
But I’m a grown ass man now.
and no amount of complaining will do a da...

The question I never stop asking.
What exactly is and isn’t within my control?
The question I will never answer.
Is my fate my own?
Is destiny, a reality?
I am in control of my actions,
at least in theory.
My work ethic is mine to command,
that's the rumor anyway.
But if I were to get up and do,
would it make any difference?
I feel so exhausted from ...

My eyes are shut
my brains going wild
That feeling in my gut
Makes me want to be a child
I think back to yesterday
It was the very same
I wish it would go away
In the end I’m all to blame
My heart beats too fast
As the clock turns nine
I’m giving today a pass
But I’ll be out of line
Where’s the fresh start
The one I dream about
Tuesday 15th March 2022 8:36 pm
Fighting a hundred battles, every damn single day
unable to help myself, with no one around who can aid.
Battling these invisible demons, but falling down each time
wondering how others can cope like this, or appear completely fine.
Twenty-Four years pass on and on, before they catch the cause
but it turns out that I'm not at fault, for all of my many flaws.
Today my struggles are validated,...

You cannot change the world,
but you may be able to be an
influence in someones world.
The world is wild and unruly.
Chaotic in nature. But you
can make a difference each
moment to feel into its texture
with your touch. It won’t be much,
but maybe it is just enough.
it is all you can do in the face
of the storm that matters.
Live it. Live it for those who can...

(For the girl who haunts my dreams still)
Not that you'd care, but
All that I wanted
was to make you proud
But, I was too stupid
All you ever did
was bring me down
I was your scar
Your permanent frown
I was your verbal punchbag
In your whiskey fuelled state
Never felt like your child
Just a vess...

When I think of her I think of scars.
She told me when she touches them they remind her of the cuts;
of how the cuts made her feel,
“it’s a purge”, she said, “a sense of being real".
She spoke to me with honesty of the incremental cost
of destroying the things she held so dear
now irretrievably lost.
Of how, through her inner turmoil,
she could meet the gi...
