Drowning in oil

We are drowning in a world of oil that pollutes our air and skies

Though they say we’re running out of it, the residue dictates its lies

We see that oil has never gone; it’s left its mark everywhere

We are drowning in the remnants of our pasts despair

Darkness is where I will be

In the shadows I find my warmth

I find my soul

I find my worth

The light is too harsh for me

It hurts my eyes and expects too much from me

I dream of darkness everyday

I dream and dream my life away

I can’t help it, because I know

That darkness is the place I want to go

The light is too harsh for me

The light blinds me so I can’t see

The light expects too much from me

So in the darkness I will be

I need to glow again

I’m dead inside

Like a robot I continue

I laugh and I cry, but it’s all a lie for I feel nothing at all inside

I pretend and I do it well

To you it must seem like Hell

But to me it’s a kind of peace

A kind of heaven

A place where my mind can leaven

A warm and quiet place

Where my mind is numb, but only for awhile

Whilst it heals and finds its pace once again

So I can once again smile

And feel it whole and great

Feel the love and elate

Whilst I spread the feeling around me

Covering all that I know

Melting all the hardness

Melting all the numbing snow

And fill the world with my presence

In an everlasting glow!

Because

An appetite for life is often met with nemesis’s who do not wish you to do well

They instead create for you turmoil and Hell

They will do whatever they can to get into your way

To pave your path with thistles and briers that will cut you along the way

Because don’t you know, their life they do hate

They cry each night in jealousy of the success that you make

They want to be like you but they do not know how

So they wrought with iron vengeance to make life a harder plough

Some know that they do this, others they do not

But those who do are fearless and they have lost the plot

Life is hard as it is, if you are sick and you are poor

But with people like these in your life, it makes it even more

Be kind to all, because don’t you know?  We’ve all got the same place to go

Just some can do it and some do not, purely because they’ve lost the plot

They’ve decided life is unfair

They’ve decided they’ve stopped the care

They’ve decided that anyway, things will always and forever be the same

And for them they might be right

Because they’ve bought on this plight

Because they didn’t think right

Because they feel they know

That this is how life for them should go

Because they won’t take responsibility

For all their freedom and liberties

Because they feel that they have none

So their own life they have outdone

And so they toil and wreck other people’s lives

Because they feel that they can’t thrive

Snow fairy

With tinsel hair and twinkle toes a little fairy glides

Spreads ice and snow from her wand and wearing rabbit hides

She spreads her wings above us all and snowflakes flutter down

To rain joy upon us all and making smiles from frowns

Each and every winter, the little fairy comes

To paint the world white with snow so you can play in it with your chums

Hip, hip hooray for snow fairy

In her pearly gown

She brings such joy to everyone, when she has come to town!

Oily world

We’ve made plastic everywhere

In our food and clothes and without a care

Fishes dying on our mess

Cancer growing in our chests

Plastic and oil equals horrid future toils

How I wish we didn’t spoil this world

Greed and ease are our sin

Look at the mess we are in

I have cried those bitter tears

But am I alone in that my dears?

Roll your sleeves up and start a trend

Vow to make amends

Linen, felt, wool and cotton for clothes

Keep away from acrylic it’s rotten and society doesn’t seem to know

Don’t choke the world with your ease and greed

Listen to how I plead

Please

I am love

Come into my arms

Let me wipe your tears away

I know life hurts so bad

I have been there too, don’t be sad

I warm you with my arms

Hear my words work like a charm

To lull all your fears away

To make you happy, so you can play

And I’ll be here for you always

To make you smile

All of the while

Control your thoughts

With fresh eyes I look into my future with wonder

What shall I plunder in my coming days?

Shall I be sweet, forever young?

Shall I be truly me in all ways?

Or is my future full of dung?

I don’t know

But I do know – you are what you think!

If your thoughts stink

You will sink into outer space

You’ll fall in disgrace

What a waste – of time and energy

Thinking about bad things, are you your own enemy?

I just know, good things flow in unpolluted waters

So let the bad thoughts go

Let them wash away

So you can play in tears of joy, not dismay!

I hope you’ve heard the words I have said

Will you be happy before you are dead?

Fill your mind with happiness

Put joy into your head!

Wear a smile on your face

And do what I said

Think good thoughts and let the bad ones go

Thinking happy thoughts will make life glow!

Cousin

Don’t judge me cousin

We’re the same

We are family and life is a game

The game is remember who you are

Inside out and near and far

Love is all around you; it’s written in the stars

Because all the world is your cousin

And this planet is our car

We’re on a journey to find ourselves

To learn to love again

To hold each stranger by the hand and reach a better end

Life is short, let’s stop the hate

So we can walk hand in hand

To gods new gracious Eden land

Life’s Pace

A sharp cold wind hits me in the face

An array of orange, gold, red, brown swirl around me

I hear the clickety clack of the railway track in the distance

Today life has a fast pace

A squirrel runs circles around the big oak tree

A crow cries out loud as it chases it away

The children rush home in their hats and coats to avoid the bitter wind

Life has a fast pace today

I watch in wonder as the grey skies gradually clear for golden shards of light

Then the clouds close again

A dog snuffling with its nose in leaves

Will life slow down again?

A warm rush of air as I reach my home, welcomes me to my hearth

I turn the taps in the bathroom on, a lovely soothing bath

A hot chocolate warms my hands by the fire

I have found the object of my desire

Life is slow here in this place

Life has all sorts of pace
