Where has the time gone – December 30th 2015

Was it not yesterday when I posted the first poem
This year has whizzed away
In some ways
In others it has been the longest of my life.
Now it is almost gone.
Nothing is ever gone,
We hold nothing
We have nothing in the end.
I’ve seen times change
I’ve seen smiles
I’ve seen frowns
Learnt what it takes to turn them upside down
Its beautiful
All of it is so beautiful
What was I seeing in the years previous to this one?

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy todays poem
See you tomorrow for one last time

Who left the heating on all night – December 29th 2015

I wake to an odd feeling
One of a weird discomfort.
I feel my mouth drying and my skin itchy with a slight sweat
Its not cold
Why is it not cold in the winter?
I reach out
Through the humid air
My hand reaches the usually cool metal of the radiator
It burns against my skin
Who left the heating on all night?

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy todays poem
See you tomorrow

Told to be something – December 28th 2015

Its hard to be nothing when you’re told to be something
When does the cycle end
We fight on but find that a lot of what we’ve got is pretend.
The discovery is cutting
It slashes at the wheels that spin too fast
The blurred tires make our eyes tired
We see a lot less than we could of done
New entities bring new friends
We abolish enemies
They are only enemies in our warped minds
We mark the days and see no change in the memories
The edges always were slightly hazy
We blur them so they can be what we want to remember
There is beauty in what sickens us
We just need to learn to see it

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy tomorrow
See you tomorrow

New To Our World – December 26th 2015

It was all made long a go
We salvaged it from the scrap heap.
Broken and torn
We were fixed so we could fix others.
There is sanity in the madness
We boil down to nothing when all is said and done.
Stable in the most unstable way
We are watered down
We need to be pulled from the corrosive waves that wash all over us.
There are better places to find ourselves.
Worlds apart and half the world away
We are shy and timid
Bright lights push us futher into our shells
We will emerge
And they will all look at us like we are new to the world.

 

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy todays poem

Is it fashion – December 24th 2015

I wear what I want
I choose because I decide
What other reason do I need?
What other reason can there be?
It is only clothes
They cause such a commotion
Minds going mad about the implications of what you’ve got on
The idols are admired for clothes they were given
I wear clothes to keep warm in the winter
I wear clothes so I am not naked in public
Is it fashion?
Am I fashionable?

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy todays poem
See you tomorrow

Here we go again – December 23rd 2015

This cant continue
Whats gone on for too long needs to end here?
Should it stop where it started or just where we are now?
Drop it all
See it all dissolve
Pour life over it and see it waste away to nothing
It is gone and life is good
We are golden
We empty our minds of contradictions and just love
Is it possible?
Of course its possible
We never find reason to doubt
How could we find reason to doubt what we so solidly believed in before?

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy todays video
See you tomorrow

Stand alone – December 22nd 2015

Be the one to stand out
Stand alone if you must
See the beauty
Be the beauty
Where can the world be found?
It is all in our hearts
We lack the minds to lie
Put a lid on it
Just to keep it all in
I see the worst but return to the best
That is all anyone could ever need
What else is there?

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy todays video
See you tomorrow

Mornings that live on – December 21st 2015

There are some moments that never end
Seconds that never cease
I see the great in the mediocre
See it how it could be
Not how it is
Bored of how it has been
We grow to create a new day
Each part of it is ours to be forged
We find the mindful in the mindless
And in that we find happiness
We may move fast
With the hands of time
But there are mornings that live on

Have a great day
Hope you enjoyed todays poem
See you tomorrow

What madness is this – December 20th 2015

11 days until the year ends
I don’t see it as the end
I’m not sure what I see it as
Do I see it at all?
Should I be more inclined to notice it?
After years my concentration broke
I smashed through it to save my self from staring at the walls for too long
I have no idea where I am but know it all seems wrong
Theres no love in madness
There only fair love in war
Equal hate on both sides
We decide to keep it going
When will the madness stop
What is this madness?

Have a great day
Hope you enjoy today
See you tomorrow

The sudden fall into complete happiness – December 18th 2015

It is not a weakness to admit you’re happy
Be happy if you are happy
Don’t pretend to be miserable
Just to please others
They want to see upset.
The more they ask for that the more miserable they’ll be
They enter life with a negative mind
Muddled by something unknown
You don’t stand tall with upset by the lack of upset
The people who push for this are mortified by The sudden fall into complete happiness
