The Best Kept Secret

Nothing left
Nothing left but beauty
All passed
All passed but still here
An illusion
An illusion you created
To bathe yourself in ever hot tears

Living the dream
Never been so good
Never had so much
Breathing the best beat

Breathing
We’re breathing and loving

Living
Living and dreaming

The New Young

Crimson lip colour
Rosy blush and heavy mascara
Flung them off behind
Into the air, all into the air
Fake smiles and surprises
Chitty chats and flowery galas
Thrown them away as I climb higher
Higher onto the mountain with nothing
Nothing but good air
Where I smile when I smile
And chant what I chant
Take me as I am

The Challenge – Day 31

All to myself
Anytime, anywhere
All ears
Whole heart
Entire year every year
Any mood any weather
Always ready
Always here

The Challenge – Day 30

Why fight
Dance with it
Between black and white
Gradients and shades
Accept
Then thrive

The Challenge – Day 29

No assumption
Zero expectation
Just walk
Just see
Anything is possible
Anything is feasible
Just be
Just live

The Worrier II

If only, if only
If only tears shed could cleanse the soul
If only steps you took were all seen and appreciated
If only, if only
If only you had more trust and confidence
If only you looked inside for resonance
If only, if only

The Man XIII

Shattered in one second
He put every small pieces back
One by one
Each and every single bit
Gently by hand
Day after day
Month after month
He stayed to finish
He continued until it’s completed
He’s still here after mending
He said he’d never leave his masterpiece

The Real Saviour

I climbed mountains
I swam across seas
Spring moist didn’t stop me
Neither did the winter freeze
I walked a million miles
I looked and looked
In search of a saviour
In search of a solution
Mud on my face
Muscles in my arms
My old boots now my skin
My torn jacket now a cape
I turned around
I looked back
To the rescue of my old self
Gotta tell her she’ll be perfectly okay
