What’s Trending

image

The other day I asked a teen, what political party he found most convincing
Instead, he went on about what was new and trending
Nowadays we walk around like zombies, staring blankly at a screen
Following Twitter and Instagram post about the latest thing

When was the last time you picked up your head, to see where this country is headed
But we follow each other’s Facebook feed, I really just don’t get it
We miss out on things that really matter, trying not to miss what’s trending
Information without value but still we keep pretending

Sign on to life and not your Facebook, unlock your mind and not your screen
Not catching up on the latest thing
So pardon me, if I don’t know what’s trending
I guess, my original question must still be pending

Starting New

Starting New

image

Every time I fall, I remember success is followed by failure

Life is brutal and impartial, so it’s not just me in particular

In A world of things forever changing

Starting new is something I’ve gotten used to, this is me venting and not complaining

When my journey is at end, I’ll be starting new once again

Life is full of new years resolutions

One simple but yet complex solution

Starting new with each adventure we take

With each minute decision I might have to make

Starting new is task we will all undertake


Spoken Word Poem | Different Times

image

Expections the same, In different times

How we have failed to evolve, it blows my mind

Somewere, a kid is being forced to go to college

The explanation we’re given by our parents is, to get get a good job, you have to get the knowledge

But what they don’t tell us is, there are college graduates working at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s & KFC

We live in different times, is what we consistently, fail to see

This is a monumental mistake, that has cost us dearly

As the financial bubble were in, continues growing yearly

When it burst, the harder it will send us crashing down

Like a wingless plane, where headed towards the ground

We need financial education in schools

How to build your own business, you know entrepreneur tools

We have to break a endless cycle, get out of the past, prepare for the future

Do not be programmed by others,  a walking computer

Have your own vision, unlike the walking blind

Realize, we’re living, in different times

One Last Time | Poem

image

I want to be with you, dont ask me why

I want to hold your hand, under the starlight sky

Trust me baby, just one last time

I love you woman, thats the bottom line

Take a leap of faith, as we watch the falling moon

An aproaching apocalypse, we’ll soon be doomed

War, lust, poverty, inflation, drugs, capitalism & greed

One last time, can please have peace

Take a trip, some place we’ve never seen

Do all those things, we once could only dream

So until our clocks have failed to wind

Can you do these things with me, one last time

I’m Going On A Diet | Spoken Word Poem

image

I’m going On A Diet

Five words at the start of the year, people often say but never do

We start, but but do we make it through

Im going on a diet

Not just physical, also a metaphorical one

So I will be stopping the things, that should not be done

No more late night snacks, or ice cream cones

No more lying down next to my telephone

I’m going on a diet

Can’t stop now, I have to much to loose

No more waking up and pressing snooze

I’m counting my calories, while cutting back

That means friends and family, who aren’t on the same level im at

I’m going on a diet

For a sense of mind, some piece and quiet

If this is what you need, you should probably try it
