New Year

New year of the calendar has begun.

Time to rid myself of my own born fears.

Time has gone.

Time to still be real.

Time be cleansed like I am reborn.

Never one to blow my own trumpet.

But now is the time.

Blowing my own horn like it is the horn of Rosh ha – Shanah.

Crazy how the years have gone.

Crazy how I SUFFERED IN THE DARK.

Crazy still how I did not lose my mind.

Crazy how,  no one never felt the wrath of the dark side.

But I beat my ill feelings down.

Like a Tyson right hook then kicked them whilst they were still down.

Shit it did the same to me.

It used to control the game.

But how can you douse a fire that burns so strong.

Time has showed me that I belong.

My girl has shown me where I belong.

My heart has shown me that I am still strong.

My words still flow, makes me want to beat my chest like King Kong.

Time of the dead has long gone.

Still I take what it taught me.

Still I will watch for it trying to take me.

So now my concentration.

Can be focused on the things that made me.

Negativity dead on arrival.

Subdued, no longer able to sway me.

So much to give, without be chained down.

Allowed to drive into the light.

I may have a few engine problems.

But now I can fix my mind.

So no longer can I tell myself NO, it cannot be done.

Nothing is impossible, nothing at all.

So I am going to get to where I belong.

I can now look around.

What I see does not get me down.

Something is really wrong with the world.

Could I be wrong?

But this is my new year.

My new age.

Now refocused and ready for anything to try and prove me wrong.

My strength, born in the darkness and the dread.

Ready to ascend into the light.

All that strength growing into positivity.

It will blow like a nuclear bomb.

But love will will spread the light.

My new year.

My time to rise and shine.

I understand now that when the sun sets.

It is not the end of the light.

It is the lights way to be reborn.

You said so much.

This poem is about the government system. These people will smile and shake your hand as they lie to you. I have no faith in the system as they lie and cheat. As people become more disillusioned with the system, change has to occur. Not a change of political party but a change of the whole system is needed. Are we strong enough to go into the unknown, I do not know?

You have said a hell of allot of things.

You said you stuck to your promises.

You said you cared.

You said you would always look out for us.

You said you would always protect us.

You said you would never judge us.

You said you would not lie to us.

You said you would not look down at us.

You said you would always be there for us.

You said we are your world.

You said we would be equal.

You said if we worked hard we would be ok.

You said if we put our faith in you, you would always be down.

You said if we died for you, are families would be in good hands.

You said if we fell ill you would help us out.

You said you swore you would never be underhand.

You said this was our land.

You said this was our home.

You said we would always stand hand in hand.

You said you would respect us.

You said you would never sell us out.

You said you would represent us.

You said you would be our voices, that we would always be heard.

You said you would always be fair.

You said that you would not let us down.

You said you are the same of us.

You said we would always engage us.

You said we did not have to fear you.

You said we would ALL be ok.

It breaks my heart, it hurts so much.

You no longer feel the same.

We do not know if you ever did.

Is it all just a game to you?

We play our part but you feel no shame.

You no longer understand us, you never really knew us.

You deal death, unjust punishment and cause us so much pain.

Your have no empathy never mind sympathy.

Your lies are killing us.

You keep pushing.

We are not you but we will have to push back.

God, why does it have to go this way?

You said you are us.

You told so many lies to us.

Your web is so tangled you do not know where it begins.

But this has to be were we end.

We can no longer respect you, believe you.

You make us despise you.

So all I can say is that we see through what you say to us.

It is such a shame.

Religion again.

So on i go, babbling on about religion.

Like REM, losing my religion.

But to be lost it has to be found.

So i carry on with my head down.

Doing my research, searching for a way to be down.

But when you research, you may find.

What was not intended to be found.

What some have known but did not pass down.

Some may say you are right off track, that you are paranoid, just weird and that.

But sometimes you just have to look at the facts.

Of course the facts may not be facts.

It could just be a coincidence to the facts.

It could be that the facts are distorted.

So the facts that are not facts are just coincidences of facts that are just facts that are distorted.

Jesus my mind is blown and I have only just started.

But is that the game to just confuse?

When the most blatant truths are staring right at you.

Symbols and signs are everywhere.

But they are not if you are unaware.

If you cannot read between the lines, it acts as though you are blind.

But why should you look?

Why should you care?

Do you mind not knowing the truth?

Do you not want to know if they tell lies?

Me, I am a nosey git.

I want to know our real history.

I want to know why they hold things back.

I want to know why they developed these eclectic faiths?

When they all worship the sun?

What is wrong with that?

They are all focused with the stars.

Venus, Jupiter and Mars.

They all tell a similar story in different ways.

Yet they all seem determined to hate.

Anyone who does not comply.

Whoever does not tell their version of a story, tells lies.

Yet all these stories stem from one.

What is wrong with telling that one?

Symbols and rituals are there to be seen.

They just need decoding.

I do not understand all the fuss.

Why they feel they need to lie.

We all see, the all seeing eye.

But maybe because they think that they have us trapped.

In a system, that in reality is a prison.

Could it be that they would tell such a big lie?

Just to keep us in line.

Well that is like asking would a politician lie?
