I’m not okay!

It’s hard

Not knowing why I feel this way

Confined for so long

Playing with my mental puppet strings

Pulling, yanking

Am I am just to dance?

A merry jive

To the music of the propaganda

The conspiracies

The lies of powerful people

That feel they do not have to abide

I remember the angst

The unruly mental thoughts

Skipping through my mind

As that rope slapped against my brain

Again and again and again and again

Should I even start on the job?

The thought of being a point to it all

No, a mindless trill

I am just expected to be good

And continue fucking on

Where is my value?

Am I just a tool in a workbench?

As I always will be

Until worn and I will be changed

Traded in for a younger model

At a discounted price

Now I know what to expect

It isn’t any easier

Nor shall it ever be

And before you ask

No

I’m not okay!

Sunday night

I hate Sunday night

Work the next day

Kids off to school

No time to play

Is it for them

Is it for me

I love to have fun

It makes me happy

Now a boring job

In front of a screen

Tapping on the keys

Just a has been

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

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!

happy · Life · work

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!

depression · family · Life · work

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
