The giver

The givers

The takers

The winners

The fakers

Do you feel better

Giving what you do

Just like robin hood

Taking, so true

Giving to charity

Great thing, why not

All is needed

They need a lot

Maybe you feel better

For giving away some wealth

Maybe you’re a good person

And you have your health

Charity starts at home

Look after your own

Your poor workers

Tents for homes

Be famous

.

Want to be noticed

Crave attention

A better life

Some affection

.

Try everything

Everything more

Sell your body

Become a whore

.

Exhaust yourself

Self esteem expired

Final moments

It’ll come to the wire

.

We’re all poets, writers

Authors, the like

All fighting for fame

To improve our life

.

Kill to be famous?

Sell your soul?

Cheat, take or steal?

Ride the black hole?

.

Sure, yes you would

You’d do what you can

To be famous, why not?

You gotta be the man

My new books are available on Amazon

You can win!

I feel I need a boost

If I wish to raise the roof

The next step is before me

I hold my own liberty

I am strong, courageous

Life is tough, laborious

I defy, nothing will stand in my way

Different and proud, there is always another way

Have faith, make your own fate

Believe in you, make mistakes

Learn, grow, flourish like a flower

This is for you, it’s your hour

Never has it mattered more to make your decision today

Life is yours to make it, you align the way

Positivity is your tool

Use it, break the walls

Scream, make noise, shout

That’s it, let it all out

Beat that negativity into the ground

Until you can’t hear it make a sound

Breathe that air, take it all in

Go for it, you can win!

Yes! Success!

In England

I had a good job

I was somebody

It meant a lot

I met someone

Things advanced

She fell pregnant

Wanted to return to France

We moved to France

Left my job

To have a baby

Gave up the lot

I regret not

The choice I made

To be a dad

Even if I was afraid

To be isolated

Conversation nul

Mute even

Life so dull

To start working

In fast food

Never thought possible

But I pushed through

Emasculated

Never felt as trapped

Not able to move

Started to look back

No, no, no

Same email always

With our regrets

Their negative way

I got a 4th interview

A large company

I sold myself

Take a chance on me

The next day at work

I see their lorry

Never noticed before

Will it be fate?

Will I be sorry?

I told myself

If it’s meant to be it will

Angie wished me Irish luck

And told me to chill

Finally some luck

Had shone on me

I’ve got the job

I’m so happy

8 months of applying

Depressing as it’s been

400 applications

Felt like a has been

I told my work

The news today

They were happy for me

In their own way

Goodbye to the fast food

The people that gave me my chance

Now to the new chapter

March the 12th I will dance!

A good cry

I’m calling out for help

Friends, family

Begging almost

I don’t know how to get through

I feel it coming

Washing up

Tears trickle down my cheeks

Voice starts to go

End my call

I can understand

Bitter taste

Need to carry on

Then

It floods

Wailing like a child scorned

The only friend I have

That consoles me

The hypocrite

Is man’s best friend

That this bastard cannot keep

I’m just going to give her away

Because she’s too much….

.

In my time of need

She is there

I cry

I cry

I cry

Hysterically

Breakdown finally hits

Will I go on?

Have I got a choice?

Things look bad

They always do

Going through bad times?

Have a good cry

Job Interview

Nervous,

It could all change

Life could become

Ever so strange

.

Can’t sleep

Can’t eat

What’s it doing to me?

I’m so stressed out

Is it to be?

.

That stress before

The work I put in

All that paperwork

Just to put in the bin

.

Research

Prepare 

Do everything I can

Tell myself stay calm

Stick to the plan

.

It’s just a job

I know 

It doesn’t change things

That uncertainty before

All the stress it brings

.

I won’t tell anyone

Not even my mum

Hearing no

Never been fun

.

Self confidence gone

Success ratio down

All these rejects

Make me frown

.

Approach it calm

All you can do

Take a deep breath

Have faith in you

.

Do I deserve this?

Is it finally a yes

Am I gonna get it?

After this

I’m gonna be a mess

.

Fate is gonna come knocking

One day

You will see

When you hear that yes

Your gonna be happy

Limbo, ahhhhhh!

I’m in limbo, frustration constantly

Knot in my stomach waiting impatiently

Awaiting the days just to trickle past

Feeling like a novel, feeling, well, alas

Annoyed, biting into my hands

Each meal I eat increasingly bland

Ahhhhhhh I want to scream would it help?

If I punch myself and make myself yelp?

Tell me please I need to know

Why this constant suffering, this woe?

Trying to read, play, sleep even clean

Lol the last time I did, the floor actually gleaned

Motivation zero, what is even the point?

Nothing will make it better, not even a joint

What will I do? What choice do I have?

Just bloody sit here and hope it will not last

To be harassed #metoo

.

You know what you need to do

If you want to succeed

Succumb to me

And my sexual greed

I will make you famous

Do what I ask

Fulfill my pleasures

That is your task

Look at you

So innocent and young

Just a little massage

Let’s have some fun

The world is such a disgusting place

That I will abuse

My place of money and power 

Until you will accuse

That is years down the line

I have all the time I need

You are nothing for the moment

I will make you bleed
