Battered and bruised

when torment comes and all seems black, dig deeper within, you can claw back. For what is power, but given or taken. You can get out, don’t be mistaken. For you are strong, you’ll find the Will, to take your power when you’ve had your fill.

Behind the smile and the brushing it off,
A blot on the heart that won’t shake off.
I know it’s still pumping and flowing with blood
But it’s really not working,just as it should.
The stupid, the crazy the pushing around
Get it excited as it starts to pound.
It sounds like a drumroll being bashed with a stick,
I hope it stops, and I hope it’s real quick.
The power you have contorts my mind,
Making fantasies of death,seem so very kind.
Battered and bruised you done your best,
To control the girl, you loved more than the rest.
If this is love, then hatred I’ll take
Co’s the smile on my face, is really all fake.
I haven’t the strength, it’s nearly all gone
to pull me out, so I just carry on.
The pit of my stomach is swirling with rage,
An endangered species locked in a cage.
How can you love me, and treat me so?
How can I stay, not let you go?
Love is the word that binds us together,
Please dear lord, please not forever.
Sometime, I know, I have to get out.
Enough is enough is what I will shout.
Love, you can keep it, I’ll take my chances
I’ll learn to smile without the pretences
And Carry on and begin again, but not with you my bullying friend.
You’ll never find me, to hurt me again,
This love for you will continue to wain.
I will be strong, as strong as an ox
while you will hunt like the savage fox.
Your ugly inside is a cruel disguise,
Of the facade of the man on the outside!

My mind

among the hours, days and years, which parts of you will disappear ?

The leaves were glistening like diamonds swaying in the breeze
The sound of the quiet bombarding my ears
No one to comfort or help my distress
No one to praise, scold or impress
The sun was moving at slow speed to the west
Falling deeper into darkness my mind I confess
For what have I now when all have gone
Just the sound of the birds’ sweet song?
Is that enough to carry me through when all day long I yearn for you
So swiftly you went, gods speed I would say
My hair once so dark now silvery grey
But what happened before me I hardly can tell my mind, you see, doesn’t remember that well
I know there was love and kindness too
But oh how I I wish I remembered you
I look in the mirror, a person I see,but please won’t you tell,where can I find me ?

The frown

Get up, get dressed, get some breakfast down
Hop in the car, but there is the frown
My bag is heavy and laden with books
And passers by throw me some looks
Friends are huddled together in groups
Eating crisps or snacks of hoola hoops
Chatting and laughing and goofing around
I walk right past but there is the frown
Into class and sit at the desk
Look at my hair, it’s such a mess
Teacher comes in wearing a black type of gown
Talks about history but there is the frown
Lunch time comes my tummy is glad
It’s rumbling with hunger and rumbling quite bad
Afternoon lessons, here comes the class clown
Disrupting the class but there is the frown
Home for some dinner and watch t. V
Millions of people like you and me
Millions too and some in my town
Of people in need and there is the frown
The helpless the homeless the ones with special needs
All surrounded by indulgence, hatred and greed
What of the children no bed, books or food?
Entitled they are to be in a mood.
What of the children running from bombs?
Fighting for life but we carry on,
Doing this daily routine that we know
And still the frown continues to grow
The latest gadget, or tiniest chore
Is not enough and it’s such a bore.
Look up and around then look inside
Deep in your soul and stop trying to hide
Behind the mask, the facade or the sham
And grow to be the best that you can.
There’s beauty in giving and trying to help
That is the true measure of wealth
Not what you have or what car you drive
But helping those just trying to survive
Some they are sinking and surely will drown
Reach out and remember what’s worth your frown ?

There is beauty in giving, there is joy in living. Lets make it count !

Shout

Whisper to the wind your hearts desire
Look to the person you most admire
Hear the sound of the silent words
Feel the flavour of the most absurd
Dream of the beauty the thoughts can bring
Happy contentment the nightingale sing
Whisper to the wind your wishes of hope
Look for the answers needed to cope
Hear the beat of life’s gentle drum
Feel the anger that makes you numb
Dream of the faces that bring you joy
Reach out to the ocean for the lifesaving buoy
Whisper to the wind to be by your side
Look within and don’t try to hide
Hear all the tears that fall on the faces
Feel the walls of untamed places
Dream of the light that pulls you out
Don’t Whisper to the wind now you must shout !
