My family pretends it's all okay
But I will never be this way
A problem child, I've been known,
Has caused my heart to turn to stone
My father took complete control
My childhood, in which he stole,
has caused myself to break in parts,
so I have broken many hearts…
For who you are, and what you do
There are things, inside of you
For those you simply can't control
For those that simply take a toll
Your brain and heart, are two that do
That tell you things that skew your view
Her velvet cloak draped off the stiff chair.
There was no sound from his footsteps, no sound from his presence.
“Do ye know?” He asked.
She lowered her head, for she had known for a long time.
“My lady, have ye not told them?” He…
Smile when you are happy,
Smile when you are sad,
Smile when things go good,
Smile when things go bad.
Smile each and every day,
And just think good things,
Then you will reap all of the rewards,
Of all that…
Every day when you leave the house,
And, you walk out the front door,
You wonder what kind of day you'll have,
And, you wonder what's in store.
You patrol the streets and meet so many,
And, provide a service to all,…
What kinds of words resonate in your head?
Do they lift you, move you or fill you with dread?
Is your sub-conscious a cocktail of loathing and denial?
Do you constantly judge and stand yourself on trial?
Stop fleeting and doubting and changing your mind,
You're missing so much, absorbed in the grind!
Stop thinking small and selling yourself short,
It's time to create all conquering thoughts!
Have faith in yourself…
here I am again!
stepping into this place
of rolling waves and lightning surges
coming from my heaving belly,
inside me there is an earthquake
taking with it
expectation and resistance,
they crash and change
What would you give up to get that new car?
To stay in bed all day or eat caviar
To be your own boss and take a day off
To avoid ever having another bad cough
To be what you’ve always wanted to be,
To travel the…
Never stop short of what you deserve,
With fire in your belly leave nothing in reserve.
Live everyday as though it’s your last,
Live for the now, let go of the past.
Be thankful and proud of all that you’ve earned,…
Say you can’t or say you can,
What’s written down on your life plan?
Where will you travel? Who will you be?
Will you stay trapped or set yourself free?
The time to quit whining is here and now,
So sad to wake up to
The state that we’re in
That bombs might be falling on ANY live skin
Even anger and hatred are lost in this task
What do we think?
Well no-one’s actually asked
The decision just made on all our behalf
I for one have truly learnt,
That success is not given; it has to be earnt!
If you ready to put in the blood, sweat and tears,
You can conquer whatever you secretly fear!
I’ve turned a corner and found my why,
I’ll put one foot forward and change my fate,
Set sail on a new course and make my life great!
Whatever happens next comes down to me,
I’m going to become all I can be!
It’s time to take action, become someone new,…
Stripped down and naked
No layers for concealing
No snuggly jumper to cosy our feelings
No fleecy socks hiding our hard-skinned ideas
Nor tilted brimmed hats to shadow our tears
No more flower-printed skirting around the truths…
