If you can’t cope then don’t make me

If you can’t cope with life and you enter my life, you will sail in troubled waters

If you can’t swim you’ll sink, perhaps our relationship you should rethink?

I am not going to be easy, when I’ve had a hard life

You’ve got to walk with me, or turn away to your light

I have bright days, good days too, I have than more often than you have a clue

I know I suffer and I shout it loud, but I have overcome things and for that I am proud

I am not disillusioned, I am not speaking lies, I have worked hard to live and to thrive

So when I don’t handle your bullshit, think why should I?  Then you should quit, because if the load is too heavy for you, then you don’t have the right to make me carry it too

I have my own baggage, I don’t want yours

I want a new life, with golden calm warm shores

I don’t want to dig another person’s grave; I don’t want to be your emotional slave

I want a life where things go smooth, where life is lived, not thought through

I want a life where action is key, a life where I am happy and ultimately free

So don’t bring me down because you can’t cope, because you think you know me when in fact you don’t

So don’t sit there and whine and moan, when I am out working things out and leaving you alone

I don’t wallow for long my friend, I work it out, I learn how to mend

So should you

You really should

Because living this way, is very good

Don’t offload your baggage to others if you want to be happy, if you want to live happily, change this habit snappily

It’s in your hands, not some chosen saviours, it’s in your hands and in your behaviours

So learn to ride alone in your emotional rides, learn it now and you will rise

A freedom not suicide poem

You deny me of health

You deny me of wealth

You deny me of friendship and love and games

You deny me of faith, you deny me of hope

You deny me of living and you drive me insane

That’s why I left you

That’s why I am gone

That’s why you won’t see me from hereon

That’s why I rant and that’s why I rave

You denied me of life, the things that I craved

So now I have gone, I will piece things together

I will find my hope, faith, love and more

I will carry on, night and day

And I don’t care if your heart is so sore

For I am through with living for you and I live for you no more!

In your arms I’m free

In your arms I’m free
In your arms I’ll always be
In your arms I’m free
We have formed an affinity

freedom from religion

I am going around the bend in a world that believe it is free

Whenever religion exists freedom is something that cannot be

I choose a secular life, but still religion thrusts on

I am sick and tired of hearing the same songs

I need to be in a world where I’m free

But with religion, that cannot be

I need my freedom

My essence is in pain

Being imprisoned drives it insane

This world has locked me in

It has accused me of sin

Yet I only came for sanctuary

I had no place to go

How can I ever tell it?

I don’t even know

I am locked in prison

But it’s for my own good

I am trapped here forever

Because I’m misunderstood

I hope I break free soon

I hope I’m not doomed

I hope I have a saviour

I feel so entombed

I need to spread my wings

And do ordinary things

Like being free and being me

And all my yearnings

I hope I can leave this world

I hope it’s heard my song

I want to leave

To stay I’ll grieve

I hope it sees it’s wrong

But for now all I can do is wait

I hope it’s not my fate

To stay not leave or I will grieve

Forever and a day

I need freedom

I need my family

I need my friends

And I will never leave them ever again

I want freedom

Please let me leave

And retrieve my life before I came here

You know I need them

I need to go

How do I show, that I am innocent?

And that you’ve got me all wrong?

I need my freedom

I need my freedom

I need my freedom

The world and it’s follies

I question the world and its follies

I see people doing nonsensical things in the name of who they are or in the name of their god

I wonder why they do some things, I find it rather odd

But I don’t judge them for what they do

Unlike they do to me

I sit back and watch the world and I allow them all to be free

Why can’t they with me?

Why can’t they leave me be?

Do I intimidate this world of men?

With my acknowledgements of all my ken?

I don’t know

But I wish they’d see

The way I see life and they’d, then, be free

Please let me see who I am

There is a journey in my head; will it lead me to life or death?

I can’t tell, but the path I’ve traveled was hell

I need space to become my self

As troubles are bad for my health

I need a way to express myself without fear

That someone is watching me, closely, near

I need that distance from those that cause me pain

Because it is them that drive me insane

I cannot live like this for long

I, myself is where I belong

Alone, if necessary

But free

For I cannot take any more you see

I need to find myself

Me

Who am I?

Let me see

Please

Let me

Be

Don’t forget our soldiers

A soldier lives through fear, each and every day

He fights in the name of duty, to protect us and to keep us safe

A soldier is forgotten, when it’s time for war

If we had lost our freedom we would have wished we had done more

Don’t forget our soldiers; they are fighting for our rights

They are fighting for our livelihood, each day and each night

Never hate these soldiers; they are doing what we can’t

To make our lands safer, to keep us away from plight

Don’t forget our soldiers, they are our heroes

They are worth more than we give, and that is zero

Respect our soldiers, they are our men

Think of them out there, for some we may never see again
