Today .. A Poem

I know I’m not the most technical poet, but sometimes I just have to get my feelings out on paper. So here we are…

Today

Greed, Greed, Greed

We all want money,

We all want fame,

You only matter if we know your name.

Fake, Fake, Fake

Silicon and plastic added extras,

We like new noses, lips and tits,

And lipo to get rid of any wobbly bits.

Easy, Easy, Easy

People think they deserve so much,

Think everything should come naturally,

But you learn nothing in life is free.

Time, Time, Time

Is shorter than you think,

We’re not going to live forever,

It’s a shame we’re living in a time when all we can do is sink.

New Poem… Jayne (JJ)

I was just aged seven,

When my mummy went to heaven,

She was pretty and bright,

And could cuddle just right,

She liked playing games with my brother,

No doubt, she was born to be a mother,

I, 8 months old, my dad left her all alone,

But we were happy, on our own,

Christmases, Brithday, just us three,

My brother, my mummy and me,

Finish school ketchup butties and hugs,

That time we all had stomach bugs,

I quite proud of the woman I’ve become,

And it’s all down to you mum,

It’s 14 years since you left us all alone,

But you loved me so I’m happy on my own,

You should know I’m crying as I write this,

But it’s not from upset, pain or anguish,

It’s becausse of all the good times we had together,

They will stay with me forever,

I’d like a chance to say things I didn’t before,

I’d need a few minutes, an hour, no more,

But then what if my thoughts all came to the top?

Once I’d start I don’t think I could stop,

Without this chance though, I’ll still fine,

Just so grateful to have a mother like mine,

You see JJ you’re in my heart and in my head,

And aslong as you’re there, you’re not really dead.

 

My Crown (a poem)

Even waking up so early,

I can’t avoid the hurly burly,

‘Cos the rain still pours down,

Knock off my bedtime crown,

Fast asleep in the dark night,

Everything seems just so right,

I’m pretty, tall and thin,

Importantly¬† I’m with him,

I can taste his kiss,

Feel his heat,

He touches me,

My heart skips a beat,

A horror film in a darkened room,

One romantic witness, a mortal doom,

But al too soon it’s morning,

And the rain is pouring,

The crown had now been stored away,

Locked away in my saddened heart,

Atleast we are only a day apart.

Huge Compliments for Me Today….

I am being upskilled at work! This great, it means I can aim for a pay rise or even moving to a different department all together. There is probably only so long I can answer phones for.

In training today we had to write a rap/poem about a product and we had ten minutes to do it and everyone was really impressed. Yay! It really was just something I pulled out of mid air but to have someone compliment anything I write is a huge deal.
