The Promised Land

Never lose sight of how it could’ve been.  19/6/2021  Strange Days   Always  Angels and Demons  Push and pull  Good men ruined  By addiction  Depression  Mediocrity  Deep in thought  I remember to be  Just happy to be  A free man  With a job  With a place  And a few good friends  I bought records today  ImagineContinue reading “The Promised Land”

Something New

Float on and live without despair.  4/2021  Something fresh  Something new  The next chapter  Of a heart that’s true  Work hard as always  Live for the weekend  Solace and meaning  As I eliminate weakness  Demons everywhere   I avoid them like the plague  Traps and falsehoods  The fucked-up bed I’ve made  Cos it’s hard on the outside  To steer clearContinue reading “Something New”

Tranquil Thoughts

Our lives in the future are shaped by the ideas and actions in the present 01/04/2021  The navigator plots a course  To greener pastures forever more  Better people, better places, better life  The sweetest taste of effort rewarded  As hard work the furnace  Satisfies where vice falls short  As all the troubles of the past  Drift away in theContinue reading “Tranquil Thoughts”

Treasure

Beautiful people, beautiful souls.  20/03/2021  The girls all looked stunning  Dressed up for a wedding  We wore flowers in our hair  That day at the catacombs  And in a lucky turn of events  A volcano in Iceland erupted  And all the planes were grounded for a week   Oh, what a shame  We had to remain  Another week   InContinue reading “Treasure”

A Little Less Cruel

We do our best to navigate the problems at hand  15/03/2021  Somehow  In my neck of the woods  We all live lives   Of quiet tragedy  Some more than others it’s true  But spend long enough on planet earth  And something will go wrong  Pray you have the strength  To negotiate hardship  Trauma and turmoil  When the devil strikes  Because noContinue reading “A Little Less Cruel”

Superman

What do you want to be remembered for?  03/2021  Inspiration and perspiration  Work hard to reach your destination  The call of paradise and sweet delight  Beckons us into the night  Driving home on my own  To my throne I’m in the zone  To acknowledge the blessings  Of first world wealth  To love with gratitude  Our continued good health  PlentyContinue reading “Superman”

The Butterfly Effect

Tiny actions in the present could completely transform your future.  07/03/2021  I once had a friend  Who told me he had a cousin  That earned $80,000 a year  Playing drums  On a cruise ship band  Talented drummer that I was  That humble little conversation  It inspired me to study music  At the Australian National University  JustContinue reading “The Butterfly Effect”

A Like Minded Soul

I have a serious aversion to mediocrity.  02/2021  Let me find wisdom  In unexpected places  Let me find meaning  In the world of the battler  The addict and the dealer  We all have our vices  And everyone has something to offer  Some information worth knowing  Everyone is good at something  The work on cars, fish like pros  Tinker and fix things Continue reading “A Like Minded Soul”

The Light Of All That’s Good

I once had a vivid dream about a mighty wooden boat. 04/03/2021 The vessel is being rebuilt  The paradise lost  With the sinking of a mighty ship  Is giving way to new beginnings  New frequencies and approaches  The wooden boathouse  That vanished in my dreams  Left a blueprint  For future greatness  So, we toil learn and engineer  The next chapterContinue reading “The Light Of All That’s Good”

Revolving door

The concept of the career crim, is still alive and kicking.  27/3/2019 A mate went home today  They call him The Levitator  Andf my name being what it is  They call me The Navigator  The ‘Gator’ and the ‘Tator’  He’s a metal head  And I’m a punk  So we can agree  On loud guitars  And pounding drums  A career crim   He’s done hardContinue reading “Revolving door”
