1. BIG CITY DREAMS

“Blinded by the lights, I’m drawn in by the crowds,

An eclectic group of people, rubbing shoulders without smiles”

But nowadays being stopped and asked questions by police”

As slowly I drowned, in a plateaued Ambition”

And move onto the next one, Our values greatly skewed”

Abruptness of what followed made my heart disintegrate”

6. LOST ONES

“But soon there would be trouble, and unforeseen change,

Which led to separation, and hearts so full of rage”

“Freedom of expression, hell-bent at its mastery,

But when it didn’t flow, anxiety seeped craftily”

8. TALES OF DEVASTATION

Families ripped apart, and destroyed past restoration”

9. LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR

“His words cut through, like a dagger to the heart,

Exposing their hypocrisy; blind religiosity”

Instead were met with bravery, and love beyond compare,”


11. MUNDANE

“Mundane! Everyday is the same,

Wake up, go to work. Slowly going insane”

“What did they even mean by that? And why said in that tone?

I dialogue internally to calculate my wrongs”

13. BUDGET AIRLINE TALES

“A queue jumper the highlight, as she mussels her way past me,

An angry woman shouts “Oi! You must be a nutter!”

14. THE ART OF BLAGGING

“But little do they know you haven’t even got the foggiest,

But pride gets in the way, and you start speaking with such confidence”

15. EASTER

“A choice between a criminal and him, they chose the latter,

And proceeded with mob justice, his back they whipped and battered”

16. ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA

900 friends, but no one there to share the moment with”

But now times gone, it feels like I’m wasting mine”

18. POOR MAN’S TALE

“It’s cold, you’re ignored, and exposed to the elements,

Abandoned in negligence, considered irrelevant”

19. CHIPOLOPOLO 2015: CAN HISTORY REPEAT ITSELF?

“The weight of this moment precedes grown men’s cries,

As we remember our dearly loved brothers who died.”

20. THE ANGRY SHARPNESS MONSTER

The thought of being at sea always had his attention drawn.”

  • Young.Black.Unarmed (9 Feb) – Police violence against black people in America has been in the news a lot recently. The statistics are ridiculous! This is what inspired me to write this piece. check it out..
  • J.Miles – Love Letters (ft Leah Smith) (3 Feb) – This song beautifully shares a simple yet necessary message that the world needs to hear; a love like no other..
  • Last Nights Weird Dream (#2) (3 Feb) – Another one of those nights. This the second weird dream I’ve managed to record straight after waking up.

Lost Ones – Short Poem

Rosy on the surface. It was rosy, on the surface.

Up close or at a distance, you’d say things were perfect.

See it in their eyes, that little glint of light,

The joy unspeakable that filled both their lives,

But soon there would be trouble, and unforeseen change,

Which led to separation, and hearts so full of rage.

Sudden turn of events, there was no indicator,

Of what brewed in the engine of its willing perpetrator,

Unseen through the eyes of its soon to be victim,

Who would be left asking, what on earth had just gripped him?

Once closer than ever, now it’s like they never met,

A friendship burnt out, like ashes off cigarettes,

Each night lonely tears would soak his dry pillow,

His face lay drooped, like leaves hung off a willow,

Not long since they burst into uncontrolled laughter,

Snorting in the process, but laughing ’bout it after,

Close friends, they’d stay up late to chat through the night,

Sharing little stories, precious memories of life.

Oh to be restored to how rosy things were,

B.F.F’s in their prime, just taking on the world,

They stood tall in the crowd, with shoulders ever broad,

Rolling like mavericks, no care what others thought,

A two man army; for their friend they always fought,

Yet now, these very words are just nostalgic thoughts.
