The First…..

The first always the brave, the strong

The followers, lambs, reflections

The first to danger, excitement, adventure

By choice. The followers to danger by fear

The first always the brave, the strong

The followers, lambs, reflections

The first to danger, excitement, adventure

By choice. The followers to danger by fear

The first loved, admired, lauded, applauded

The followers forgotten, pitied, ignored

Perception of the first, flawed, exagerated

We are all the first, the only, unique beings

Underrated.

They……

They are armies, they are bullies

They fight wars, they are terrorists

They persecute, they are gangs

They repress, oppress, enslave

They are armies, they are bullies

They fight wars, they are terrorists

They persecute, they are gangs

They repress, oppress, enslave

They are power, relentless and ruthless

They are destroyers without empathy

Who are They?

Who are We?

Are You Ready?

Is this where you ought to be?

If not there then where?

If not now then when?

Are you how you’re meant to be?

Is this where you ought to be?

If not here then where?

If not now then when?

Are you how you’re meant to be?

Your life, your choice, your future

It’s your move……

Morning All :O) How are we all today? I just had to share this with you because of it’s sheer simplistic elegance and eloquence. I love Matt’s writing but this really blew my mind – I hope that you enjoy it too.

Our thoughts think themselves through even when we don’t want them to So we stand looking at their faces seeing beyond what we are seeing -M. Taggart

I Thought You’d Come Back…

Be patient, they said

Time heals

The indefinite

Never ending

Waiting game

Be patient, they said

Time heals

The indefinite

Never ending

Waiting game

Unceasing, progress

Marching forward

Never patient

Still insistent

I thought you’d come back

You can’t, I know

I can’t stop

Waiting………….

Feeling sad today but trying not to. Have a lovely day wherever you are and whatever you’re doing :O)

There is No Alternative……

To life. One free gift and it’s very brief.

Profit from today, there will be only one

Think not of tomorrow for it may not come

Let it take you like the wind takes a leaf

It’s Only A Game

I don’t know the rules?  Help me please

There are no set rules

What is my position? Tell me please

You can move freely

It’s Only A Game

I don’t know the rules?  Help me please

There are no set rules

What is my position? Tell me please

You can move freely

Who is my opponent? Show me please

He’s of your choosing

Who are my team-mates? Answer me please

When you play, you’ll know 

How long is the game? Share with me please

It will end when it ends

When do I start? Its name at least please

Now. The game is called Life

What Can I Give You?

You want my smile?

Take it, wear it, it won’t reach your eyes

You want my laughter?

It’s yours but I warn you it’s empty

You want my smile?

Take it, wear it, it won’t reach your eyes

You want my laughter?

It’s yours but I warn you it’s empty

You want my happiness?

I’d gladly give it to you but it’s lost

You want my heart?

You can have it but know that it’s broken

You want my hope?

I can’t find a use for it now, take it

You want my love?

I’m sorry I have nothing left to give………

This week has been a bit sucky if I’m honest so I wrote this to try and get out all the negative emotions that seem to have me wrapped up so tightly. I know the feelings will pass as they have always done in the past and I will find the sliver of a silver lining to hold on to.

There is no-one in my ‘real’ life that I would share this with for fear of freaking them out so I’m glad that I have my WordPress friends there for when I need to get stuff like this off my chest.

Thanks to all of you
