The Beauty Inside

The miracle of life for me is that anything works as well as it does. 07/07/2021 The complexity of life  Is truly mind blowing  7.8 billion humans  And each one of the billions of cells  Found in each human body  Is far more complex  Than the largest super computer  Let the synapses   Of my brain   Fire again Continue reading “The Beauty Inside”

My Cozy Den

Existence is truly a special thing.  21/06/2021  Delight in the night  Downtime and daydreams  In my cozy den  Where I dance with the pen  The creative one  My cross to bear  And my badge of pride  That I may be remembered   For words that remain  Positive against the odds  As courageous golden laughter  Permeates the depths of ourContinue reading “My Cozy Den”

A Fortress Inside

Every day is better than the day before. 20/06/2021    A glowing gem  Of a brand-new day  And everything that could possibly happen  Is happening somewhere  A shining diamond  Of a treasured friend  Lightens up the landscape of my soul  A golden light  As love unravels  Leaving a void to be filled  With fresh adoration  I don’tContinue reading “A Fortress Inside”

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”

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”

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”

Never Give Up

Give thanks for that little crumb of happiness. 01/03/2021 Acquiesce to the rapturous nature   Of freedom from jail  Of freedom from failure  As life improves every day  As I gather pace   Ine the modern rat race  Let positivity prevail  Let life unwind   In the best possible way  Let life be kind  A mountain of work  Toil that’s welcome  For the ripeContinue reading “Never Give Up”

A Life Worth Living

The past shapes the future. 11/01/2021 The fountain of youth is just  The plethora of possibility  Found in the past  Happy memories as a child  Are a spring that flows forever  Of self-belief   And faith in the world  That we can find our way home  Sometimes it feels like all is lost  Cold terror, black misery andContinue reading “A Life Worth Living”

The Way the Wind Blows

The one thing missing is something that can’t be forced. 12/02/2021 Now that I know The way the wind blows I can forgive myself Put shame on the shelf Move forward with pride Healed on the inside Because I find That a troubled mind Is in no way rare And that love can repair AlmostContinue reading “The Way the Wind Blows”
