They’re saying she jumped
Lord knows i felt her pain
The hurt she had faced
Time and again.
The way that they talked
That’s what hurt her the most
No wonder she leapt
She kept her feelings closed.
I should’ve spoke out
We were around the same age
The sad fact is, it shouldn’t have
gotten to this stage!
To lock yourself away
That is no way to live
They say that she jumped
And they’re right, i did!
In the end,
Is it even over?
Or something else entirely?
Is Heaven still peace?
Earth still round?
Is Hell still red and fiery?
Does Love mean more?
Or Hate mean less?
Are there more lessons to learn?
Does the grass still grow?
Stars still shine?
Does the sun continue to burn?
Do you see my point?
Can you understand?
This message i’m trying to give?
If nobody knows
You may as well wing it
Just have fun
Enjoy the life you live.
Accept what you must
Change what you can
Don’t sit there with 99 stresses!
Don’t bother asking
Just go with the flow
Cos we’re all just taking wild guesses!
In the land of my dreams
Nothing is ever as it seems
It feels like forgotten memories
Of a world far away
Anything is possible
All strange things plausible
I love the wonder of it all
This world far away
From the beauty beyond the rainbow
To the monsters from down below
Still i truly long to go
To the world far away
The place where time doesn’t fly
The place where the sea meets the sky
The place where i always have to say goodbye
That world too far away
It’s a code red! category 9 emergency,
Its a real bad time to try and disagree,
With world leaders stomping on bottom feeders,
causing reasons for treason, causing catastrophes.
The little man, has no chance, to make a stand for change,
Got a message but the signal is way out of range.
Millions of civilians speak
the governments are weak
giving fake ass speeches
to win headline of the week.
Now the fat-cat’s out of the bag
Gags lifted and sold to the daily rag So they backtrack from the flack by throwing money from their gucci manbags
While the poor man’s still hanging out dry
wondering why he can’t get by with no end in sight
Top dogs catch their mile-high flights, while the mongrels catch the low-life lice.
It’s a sad sad state of affairs, the cupboards are bare, old Mrs Hubbard can’t survive on welfare,
No one will hire, situation is dire,
The debt, bills, utilities are always getting higher.
So come what may, the storm we shall weather
we’ll have our day, and they’ll have theirs but who will fair better?
Only the powers that be will eventually tell
Who will be laughing in heaven
And who will be crying in hell.
This poem is open to interpretation,
A single lighthouse paves the way for many a stranded sailor
If she ever dared to stop
she would be deemed a failure
Many a night she used her energy
Often leaving her feeling drained
Even though it burned her out
She never once complained
She accepted her lonely position
A protector from the rocky banks
As stormy waters stirred wildly beneath
The sailors never gave their thanks
And still she stands there selfless
High above the crashing waves
Unloved, and a little beaten but
grateful for the lives she saves.
I‘m always tired but I can’t sleep
I know I make promises I can’t keep
There’s a circus inside my brain
But the voices tell me I’m sane
I’m the most honest liar you’ll meet
Head to the ground, clouds at my feet
I want love but I cause so much friction
I’m just a fucked up contradiction
I long for a loving, tender kiss
But I’m not the type to take risks
Too scared to walk out on stage
Quite happy to sit in my cage
Writer of dreams, I play pretend
Not that I’m lonely, I have a few friends
What they see isn’t what they get
The real me, even I haven’t met.
Sitting here alone and that’s ok with me
Listening to the sound of the midnight quiet
I’m not being cold and I’m not even that old
But still I appreciate the midnight quiet
A little bit of rain and the roads are empty
Enjoying the sound of the midnight quiet
Still a bit warm, the stars look so pretty
Staring at the night sky and the midnight quiet
laying here thinking, chilling, reminiscing
Trying to work out my life in the midnight quiet
I’m feeling so content as the world falls asleep
Blissful dreams and memories of the midnight quiet.
