it's ok to live a life that others don't understand.

now the night
begins
smoke rings rise
in the air
no thoughts of future
there is none
but pain
and suffering
from where
all art came
send me strength
to sleep
where my demons
lay caged
side by side
until the dark hours
are done

A CRIME BY ANY NAME

ON ANY GIVEN DAY THERE ARE NOW ELEVEN THOUSAND CHILDREN BEING HELD IN BORDER DETENTION CAMPS IN THE U.S.

LIVING IN OVERCROWDED CONDITIONS, AND IN MANY CASES WITHOUT THE BASIC NECESSITIES THAT ANY HUMAN BEING DESERVES.

THERE ARE ALLEGATIONS OF SEXUAL ABUSE AND RETALIATION FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO PROTEST THE CONDITIONS THEY ARE FORCED TO ENDURE.

ONE VISITING DOCTOR DESCRIBED THE DETENTION CENTRES AS TORTURE CAMPS!!!

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO AMERICA...THE WORLD IS WATCHING!!!

I have never been a great meat eater, choosing to eat meat or fish just a couple of times a week, this I should add, was based purely on health grounds and nothing to do with the morality of eating meat.

Last night I sat down with a couple of friends to watch a documentary called "Dominion",
an Australian documentary made in 2018.

I won't describe the film, if you want to watch it, it's free to see on YouTube. I will just say that it is the most horrifying exposure of modern meat production methods that I could possibly imagine, and far more disturbing than any horror film you could ever watch.

So as from today I am a meat free zone, I'm not going to get all preachy about it, it's just a p...

Dear fellow human beings,

People are not "toxic" simply because they do not fit into your view of who you are anymore.

They are simply not part of your journey, though truth be known, they were probably once a very important part of it.

So don't be so quick to judge, they too are on a journey, facing the same struggles as you.

Stop using self help buzz words and start thinking for yourselves!!!

Our leaders

Are not leading

They line their own pockets

And the pockets

Of multi national corporations

They are not making

Good decisions

We must fight to protect

The vulnerable amongst us

We must fight

To protect the environment

There is something wrong

With the leadership we have

I am damaged

And sometimes

I will struggle

I will shut you out

And find it hard to trust

I will need reassurance

I will need you

To keep choosing

Me

So do not

Enter my life

If you can't handle that

AND DON'T YOU DARE

Touch my heart

If you are not ready  for it

Being strong is not always a strength

It's often the strongest amongst us

That are the last to ask

For the help that they desperately need

So never forget to check

On that one friend who always seems to have their shit together

Because you never really know!!!

Should have stayed

Were there signs

I ignored

Can I help you

Not to hurt

Anymore

We saw brilliance

When the world

Was asleep

There are things

That we can have

But can't keep

The reminders

Pull the floor

From your feet

In the kitchen

One more chair

Than you need

And you're angry

And you should be

It's it fair

Just because

You can't see it

Doesn't mean

It isn't there.

SONGBIRDS

For you there'll be no crying
For you the sun
Will be shining
Cause I feel
That when I'm with you
It's all right
I know it's all right

And the songbirds
Keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you
I love you
I love you
Like never before

    Fleetwood Mac/Eva Cassidy

The favourite song of someone that I once loved very dearly, and the mother of my child, who was sadly taken from us far too young...

For Rhiannon, we will miss your gypsy soul ❤️❤️❤️

EMPATHY

is there any greater word

any other single attribute

we can possess

to see with another's eyes

to hear with another's ears

and to feel

with another's heart.

Most lonely

Were with people

Who made me feel alone

I have never felt

Less alone

I have found more morality

More ethics

In the literature of authors

Such as Dostoyevsky

Orwell

Kafka

Than I have ever found

In any religious text.

A SONG FOR THE OPPRESSED

WHEREVER THEY MAY BE...

They call it the law
We call it
Apartheid
Internment
Conscription
And silence
It's the law that they make
To keep you and me
Where they think we belong
They hide behind steel
And bullet proof glass
Machine guns and spies
And they tell us who suffer
The teargas and torture
That we're in the wrong

No time for love
If they come in the morning
No time to show tears
Or fears in the morning
No time for goodbyes
No time to ask why
And the sound of the sirens
The cry of the morn.

                    Christy Moore

My alma mater was books

A good library

I could spend the rest of my life

Just reading

Just satisfying my curiosity.

Rid me of the curse
Of drugs
And early death
Find me as a friend
Show me love
And timeliness
Return me to the beach
Of men
Who teach
And cure the hurt
Of wanting
Amongst the empty void
And verse
Find me often
Fill my life and
Leave me not alone
Provide me  now
A wife and home

And I have seen too much
But it's made me who I am
And I won't regret the things I've done
All the drinks we've drunk
All the songs we've sung
And all the dreams
I thought we'd share
I'll just rock away
Rock away in my rocking chair

A little ditty

About Jack and Diane

Takes me back

To when we were seventeen

You owned the beach

In your Oakley shades

And those cut off jeans

If you heard it now

Would it take you back?

And would you smile

And wonder what became of me

Remembering
That you are going
To die
Is the best way
I know to avoid
The trap
Of thinking you have
Something to lose.
You are already
Naked
There is no reason
Not to follow your heart
