Those things that pass us by

I am not one for
regrets

Not taken to that fancy
of watching

Those things that pass
us by

If you were to look
closely

There is a twinkle in
minds eye

Sometimes I remember
those

Feelings of yesteryear

Those long and lasting
moments

That even now still
bring me cheer

Reminisce in a knowledge
of sharing times with you

Grateful for a knowing

The mere fact that I
have experienced the likes of you

Now that time has spoken

And banished you to the
past

I remember gratefully

For your image will
ever last

Sealed in time immortal

In that place I call my
soul

Happy and content with the
thought

That you are a part of
my whole

And thus it is I
remember

To always guard carefully
my soul……

You deceived me when my
heart was open

When my eyes were
closed

I listened to the world
with my souls ear

Feeling for connections
oblivious to fear

You glimpsed my soul
stealing such a view

Then came to me with a
pretence

That it was you I knew

Deep in thought and
contemplation

Weighed in balance and
meditation

Decisions made, voices
stilled

Time now spoken it was
love you killed

Not just a chance to
enhance such a life

But opportunity to
quell trouble and strife

The world now seems a
darker place

Explained your concerns
for rush and haste

But to you I extend the
deepest of thoughts

For a feeling of
knowledge of being

In that darkness caught

Extended to you is this
path of light

Not to be mistaken for
souls to unite

But merely reflections
of what was to be

For in past distance in
your place was me…..

Sun a rise up…..

 

I watched the battle

Rage across the sky

Night did a flee as the

Sun did rise up on a high

Birds dem did a praise

The start of de day

Stars dem did a twinkle

Like someting dem did want say

Watching de moon a hide up

In a cloud

Sun a push back an a shout

Out loud

Praise be to the high for

Seeing trough the night

Born a new day an a

Another chance to fight

Watched is dis ting of

Everlasting fight

Older dan memory

Like darkness an light

Caught in a glimps of

A twinkle in a yeye

Such tings dem bigger

Dan the you an de I….

Still me a watch and

Reason wid the one

Fa every creature know

De early bird dem song

Come and gather at the

Start of each day…

Liff up you head and

Prays dem me say

Know where you stan

And for what you a fight

Fa if you no know you

Will fall in to night

Time fee you choose

What a wrong an a right

Fa you must walk in

A day or walk in a night

You told me you were lonely

So I carefully held your hand

Looked deep beyond externals

Hoping to understand

 

You told me you were lonely

So I carefully held you tight

You expressed to me how strangely

You felt the days and night

 

You told me you were lonely

So I carefully kissed your brow  

Expressing those emotions that

We commonly share somehow

 

You told me you were lonely

So I gently stood back a pace

Not wanting to give false hope

Or disappointing just in case

 

You told me you were lonely

And had somehow lost your way

I told you as your friend in need

You always had somewhere to stay

 

You told me you were lonely

And wanted me in your life

That you were looking for more

Than friendship and assistance in life

 

I told you I was lonely to help you easy

Your pain, not for deception or your

Heart to gain…

 

I told you I was lonely as no other

Like me I have found, not for you

To stand before me and cut of

The view of ground

 

I told you I was lonely as this reflects

My soul, no want or associations

With others could every fill this hole

 

I told you I was lonely for I too lost

My way, seeking in such darkness

For brightness leading the way

 

So many of us are lonely but seldom

Find a friend, so many of us are without

Another upon whom we can depend

 

So many of us are lonely but not sure

Of what we seek, not the warmth or

Comfort of another will fill this gap

Unique

 

Unfinished….. continuing the understandings of life!!!

I believe that the facts stated in these
Particulars of Claim are true:

 I am at court with
Malachi in a few hours and can not sleep… not a lot I can say really is
there…. I am still fighting a system that is allowing him to fail and has
done continually for fuck knows how many years…. we live in a system that is
based upon failure… someone has to go to prison…. someone has to be
arrested…. someone has to go to court….. and someone has to reach a lower
level of academic achievement…. convenient and coincidental that once caught
in any of the above you have a better chance of being involved in the
others…. where would we be should all chose to follow the rules, regulations
and conformity… no need for any form of social constraint or restraint or the
mechanisms that support them…. while we move more and more towards a less affair
government all of the above can surely only expand as the disgruntled become
the majority and the legally protected the minority… laws were instigated
along biblical lines to protect those that have from those that do not…. as
such it has been developed and fine tuned to the point that the more you have
the easier it is to protect it…. I find it distressing to know that the only guaranteed
legal aid now is that of discrimination and immigration…. what the fuck kind
of world are we turning into when you can not protect your rights unless you
can afford to….

 

My midnight reading for the last week
has been the new and revised Practice Directions Application and Interpretation
Of The Rules…. no comment… but with one case (the police) in court next
month and Rutland County Council pulling out all the stops at the local county
court I have no other alternative than self education….. I am not surprised
to see their legal representative lie in written form after so many of the
staff members have done so verbally…. they are safe in the knowledge that
those like them within the judiciary will not allow the collapse of their world
and will brush aside not for the first time any calls for justification…..
those people that kill their children for what ever reason…. shoot….
stab…. steal…. to me represent an internalisation of frustration and self hatred
that should be directed towards the likes of my local council whom pick and
choose their targets the world over… this is a tried and trusted system to
systematic control and manipulation….. let’s wait for the monitory crash and
see you people on the streets hay!!!!   

Dreams awake me in the midst of night

Dreams of grandeur dreams of fright

Deepness of anguish deepness of soul

Sweat pouring from thoughts of being whole

 

Dreams awake me in the midst of night

Not sure of reality not sure of what’s right

Missed opportunities seen deep in the past

Questions emotions come quickly and fast

 

 

Dreams awake me in the midst of the night

No longer alone my hand been held tight

Deepness of feeling from distance long passed

Feelings of anguish that somehow did pass

 

Dreams awake me in the midst of the night

Devoid of emotion

Devoid of emotion

I stand and watch our kind

Not wanting to condemn all

I see and looking for reasons

To be kind…

 

Devoid of emotion

I watch as others pass me by

Looking deep within nothing

Catches minds eye

 

Devoid of emotion

I turn and walk away

Not wanting to witness

Such destruction  that

Surely comes your way

 

Devoid of emotion

I  find a place of
rest

Alone secluded space

Provided for mind to have

A rest

 

Devoid of emotion

I allow my soul to weep

For gone are such times and

Places where all were considered

Unique……

 

Now all seems devoid of emotion

I
question this reality

That
would separate

You
from me

 

I
question this reality

That
would stop us

From
being the me

 

I
question this reality

That
values more than life

Wealth
power and hypocrisy

More
than husband and wife

 

I
question this reality

That
kills in order to save

Regardless
of consequences

Or
justifications that are grave

 

I
question this reality

That
does not consider

The
whole

But
would rather dissect

And
adjust and make such

Stories
just to be sold

 

I
question this reality

That
lessons from past

Does
not learn

For
hidden in all answers

Is
a truth that we must learn

 

I
question this reality

That
looks to apportion blame

For
do we not see that in such

Directions
there truly is nothing

To
learn….

 

I
question this reality

And
look for my escape

Not
that I am a coward

But
not wanting to be part

Of
such a mistake

 

I
question this reality

And
ask it to justify

Why
after two thousand

Years
governments do stand by

 

I
question this reality…………….

 

 

I lost my motivation while walking

Deep in dreams

 

Now somewhat devoid of devotion in

Reality now it seems

 

No longer would I cross that line

Where so many have gone before

 

I lost my motivation while walking

Deep in dreams

 

Visions of the future which were clouded

By long lost screams

 

Seen were past endeavours viewed in such

Fading light

 

Lost was all conceptions of what was

Wrong our right

 

I lost my motivation while walking

Deep in dreams

 

And now that I am awake reality

Is not all it seems

 

Gone are aspects of humanity revealed

In such light of day

 

For looking closely as I often do

There is nothing worth such a fight

 

I lost my motivation while walking

Deep in dreams

my fallen angel

I
look up high in the sky

Searching
for the one

I
bump into others walking

The
earth who also are looking for one

They
like me do not see

So
busy looking up that

Like
blind leading the blind

We
appear to be

All
the time with grace of kind

Walking
right beside me

And
sometimes just behind

Is
my fallen angel

Here
just for me

Given
up was the glory of heaven

To
walk along side me

My
fallen angel in all her glory

So
blind so stupid

All
mortals can so be

That
we rush around blindly

And
seldom do we see

That
walking among us

Are
so many fallen angels

Here
for the love of you and me…….

I watched from a distance

As time passed us by

No regrets or wonder

Nor tears in the eye

Visions of grandeur and doing my
thing

Considering children and the happiness

They do bring

Now comes full circle and
justification is asked

What were decisions made that would
last

Two pints of larger and a packet of
crisps

On seconds thoughts make that a
brandy love

It’s time to get pissed

Considered responses not just
plodding along

Kicked that old duke box time for a
new song

Broken wings from birds that don’t fly

Criticised comments and you didn’t even
try

Stuck were you are so blind and don’t
see

I would rather my children follow
none

Not even me

Restricted by mind sets that are
hollowed with fear

Some wanker named Obama and they
cheer

Not for progression or consideration
of youth

But for from the poor children he is
hiding the truth

They wish to be there where he’s
standing tall

Look beneath his feet were
generations still crawl

What can I tell you other than just
stand your ground

For even without words in your
direction lessons are found

You teach when you motion for
another pint of beer

Your showing the younger’s that
alcohol holds no fear

So go where your going the same as
with me

For times and distance shows
differences you see!!!!

 

………………………………………………………………………………………

Twelve million empty castles
populated by one

Each is a home in the waiting to
come

No justification for the efforts
that are made

Just increasing sensations of known
roles that are played

Keep the Jone’s entertained and in
style

No time to consider that such things
are vile

Covert not the bible did say

No wonder half the politicians are
gay

Eroded values that are no longer law

Aspects discarded now covering the
floor

Should we legalise murder other than
in war

I wait for such times for that
bastard next door

Social erosions of things coming
fast

No chance of Mohamed teaching in my class

Visions of changes for entertaining
the young

Go read up on history for change is
a gun

Taken at chances to eradicate the
past

For even Obama would have died in
the past

If not for those willing to stand up
and fight

Even though this lead to deaths in
the night

Poor man Martin just wanting to
climb

Didn’t reach no mountain I think you
will find

Peaceful means that were killed with
a gun

Yet we keep lining up like this shit
is fun…..

November the what!!!

acceptance to some that I have met, especially on line jokasses!!!

Such loss of direction has created a path

No longer restricted to concepts to last

New things open where before was a wall

Loss of direction now all stand so tall

Removed is restriction of possibilities

Now choices abound with realities

Created from thoughts of the here and the now

No longer denied with depressively how

With single direction a thing of the past

Such visions of grandeur so easily surpass

Directions directions so many are seen

So eager for life for changes to gleam

…………………………………………………………

The bridge did a sway as I tried to walk

Changed conceptions of how tings did build

Different views of motion and space

No longer was I in rush dwam farceness or haste

My weakness exposed in such open a place

Brace up stan tall and steady me pace

What made dem build dis abomination to climb

No warning of sickness me look but na fine

Long walk back cross open fields

Sure of me footing and no weakness to yield

Look way me a walk is now what me do

For me frightened dem catch me and what me would do…..

………………………………………………………….

 

Not all dreams are pleasant in nature or kind

Not all dreams are things we want pan de mind

Some dem do run we and cause up a sweat

Others are actions an tings we regret

Waking now sudden as I just did

I rub up me eye’s dem and peel back the lid

Not happy wid what me just see a gwan

Concern pan me brow as me mouth it a yarn

…………………………………………………………………

 Sid down and a reason
wid one or two man

No raise up me voice or lif up me han

Drink a drink and hole an a spliff

Tell pickny fe gwan fa me na warn no liff

Sid down an a reason like back in the day

Naw remines naw chat rubbish me say

Fa dees a strange times when tings naw go right

U fee open ya eye an na gwan say a night

Look whey u a go and wha u a do

Fa jah is watching an will come fee judge you…..
