Soul on fire

One shot give it your all.


All eyes on me

As I navigate this fair city

Latitude and longitude

I’ll navigate a path for you

If true north is what you seek

Take my hand and come with me

We will:

Unlock for you a path that’s true

                Slay your demons

                                Heal your soul, have a breakthrough

                                                Keep you dreaming

                                                                Unlock the light within

Let’s do it! Let’s begin!

Sleep patterns? Check

Diet? Check

Exercise? Check

Vocation? Check

We all want meaning in our lives

Want more than to just survive

So be kind to yourself

Forgive your mistakes

Knuckle down to hard work

And be truly awake

To life on this world

The only one we’ve got

And this chance to live

We get just one shot

So shoot for the starts young apprentice

Shoot for the stars my apprentice and you might just

Like it.

                Love it.

                                Laugh at it.

And come to end with a soul on fire

Knowing you gave it your all.

I was a bit hesitant to put this one online partly because I’m not a huge fan of rhyming stuff and partly because it’s so different from my jail stuff.

I feel like if you’re going through hell or have bad mental health issues this is the one for you. I always find myself compelled to spread positive energy to my fellow man and share what I know about living well and conquering hardship both within yourself and with your surroundings.

The clichés are sometimes right on the money. Like dream big with no remorse and appreciate the journey as much as the destination. All that stuff resonates with me and finds its way into a lot of my poems.

One shot give it your all.

      1. Oh…I’m an expert in accidentally deleting comments! 😅
        I’m sure the language was surprising but all language has an underlying meaning and also a cause.
        The rhyming slang is truly fascinating to many lovers of language 🙂


      2. I’m sure it would be possible to write a thesis on the evolution of slang.. Don’t know if the academic world is ready for habits of the criminal class. It’s a constant source of entertainment for my non criminal mates.


      3. 😅 I’m sure…

        There should be and I’m sure there must be studies. But I also think it should be taught as a language. After all it has been an important part of a large section of society and has a rich cultural background to its origins.
