Reconciliation

Live your life, live it full

One chance only to play the ball

It’s too short to hold a grudge

Getting you down, had enough?

Be the bigger person, don’t be small

Take courage my friend and stand tall

Family feuds we know they go on

It eats you up, you need to move on

Reconcile with them, pick up the phone

Do you want to die feeling alone?

If you could change one thing what would it be?

If it was me, build my bridges, set myself free

Your mother, your father you only get one

Stop blocking yourself on why it came undone

Surely sometimes you may have to swallow pride

It’s too late if something happens and that person dies

If you say it, what you want to say today

Get it off your chest, put it into play

Then you’ve accomplished something, an enormous step

You can be proud of yourself, now you can make the next

Poem taking directly from my book “Rhyming poetry to change your day” I hope yours is good, come what may.

Dare to defy

.

Why do we always want more?

Why does it eat us up?

What difference does it make?

If we want to change our luck

.

Do we suffer from greed?

Is it a bad thing?

Is it installed in us?

This constant need to win

.

We cannot stay still

Static in daily grind

Parallel continually

Like a boring line

.

DARE TO DEFY

Scream and shout

Turn it on its head

Show life what you’re about

.

You can be better

Selfish, hell yeah

Grab the bull by the nuts

Make that bugger scared

.

Positive, a winner

You are number one

You have all the power

This battle is won!

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!

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

Inspirational November

I am incomplete

Stuttering heartbeat

Repeating mess

All the less

Undefined

Passionately blind

Egoist

Seeking bliss

Looking forever

Trying to be clever

Raising hell

Alarm bells

Impossible challenge

Beat and avenge

Thrive to be

Someone free

Life to short

Cannot abort

Cowards way out

I scream and shout

Toujour defiant

Constantly reliant

Ask my friend

We do not bend

Change life

Take a knife

Cut through the wall

Stop being small

Today be you

That’s all you can do

Tomorrow is too late

Hey, why wait

.

I love being positive, it’s certainly not easy, but if I can make one person feel positive it will make me happy. I’ve had a really crappy long month, (we’re 20 days through) if your feeling down look at 1 positive point in your life and write me a comment noting it, bless yourself with that! And build from there, write a poem screaming out, there are many things in life that get us down if we let them, but there are many people worse off then me so I am the lucky one.

happy · Life

Hope and positivity

Why do we have to communicate?

Our need to connect to the world

Want to be heard, to matter

Minuscule, making a difference

An itch to be scratched

Unique and wonderful

Marvelously complicated

Humanely simple

Change others lives

Selflessness to help

Someone in need

Notice our actions

Words are power

Lose yourself to find a path

Make errors to learn from them

Never look back

Rise up!

.

Life getting you down?

Chin up my friend

Your not crazy

Stop going round the bend

Stay positive

Live life to the full

Embrace your lover

Grab the horns of that bull

Cherish every moment

Even the bad

Do something different

Be a lad

Be adventurous

Do something daring

Life’s too short 

You should be raring

No regrets

Dont you dare

Come on you

I wanna see your flare

It’s coming now

I can see it in your eyes

Your a joy to behold

Lost your disguise

It’s not for me

Do it for you

Go on my friend

To yourself be true!

.

A motivational poem to all my friends, readers, strangers and passersby. Be positive!

depression · Life · love

Happy to be alive

Hey, be positive, take it in your stride

Life getting you down? Poke it in the eye

The do’s and dont’s are very clear

Chill out, relax, have a beer

Dont be down, why that face?

Go to it now your happy place

Boss a jerk? Doing your head in?

Get him back, car keys in the bin

Partner mean? Treat you rough?

Leave their ass if you’ve had enough

Are they better than you? In your eyes

Stop being negative, no need to despise

Had an argument? they get the better of you?

Be bigger then them, agree, what it takes to do

They cannot keep you down if your positive enough

Even when it hits the fan and you feel rough

You are strong, you do matter

Look at your life, it’s not in tatters

Examine the good, do a few good deeds

Say “on this day I do decree”

To march forth with a spring in your stride

Because by gosh chaps, I’m happy to be alive!

One day

I will be great, I will be loved

One day

I will be successful and looked up to

One day

I will be able to buy what I want in life without worrying about my bank account

One day

I will make my mother, my deceased father, my partner and two kids proud of me

One day

I am waiting for this day, but when it passes I will embrace it with both hands and never let go because above all I do not wish to be a failure

One day
