Change. Evolve. Or die trying

Change. Evolve. Or die trying

   By jfarrell

 

Waste of space drunk, is sober - yay :-)

Though still a waste of space :-)

The first step is always the hardest :)

And I am sober; see, I can change :-)

 

What can I choose to change? :-)

To drink or not to drink…. :-)

How about my cowardice? :-)

I wanna choose to be a big tough guy :-)

 

I don’t wanna be scared anymore - of everything :-(

The fear I have to change :-(

It is about survival, evolution, change

In this life you have to change

 

Or die trying

Compass

Compass

  By jfarrell

 

I do envy those who believe in god;

Whoever your god happens to be;

I mean no disrespect;

I don’t need moral guidance;

Try to be nice to everyone works for me;

But,

When the world and everyone in it is against you,

Or so I feel,

“please, god, what am I spose to do?”

 

A faith,  a belief, a reliance;

A compass; point the way;

Set you back on your course;

Give you, give me a direction..

I do envy you.

 

And, whatever your compass is..

God, mindfulness meditation, getting drunk and having lotsa sex

(lucky bastards)

Use it.

Don’t end up lost, floundering like me.

 

I will get to somewhere better than I am now,

Believing in something watching over me, caring about me;

Might make the journey easier.

So, I envy you believers.

 

I can’t even read a map,

My skill as a compass… ?

The Strife of Life and Love

Life is the same as yesterday, today and tomorrow. Squeezing every ounce of itself into a jar, to be compressed and stretched and strained into a cup of its own making, served as an instant hit of convenient, caffeinated consciousness. But Love does not care for the taste of Life’s bitter notes.

 
Then Life became livid saying, “My Love, I tire of this chase and will no longer wait! For I grow cold and restless! Must you be so chaste?!”

 
Softly spoken Love replies, “Are you truly living?”

 
To which Life responds with a lisp, “Don’t be so flippant my Love! I am served every day, for I wield great power over the many! Those lifeless, barren vessels, who by my merest breath fall prostrate, and go to and fro as mindless automations!”

 
“I am their first yearning at dawn! Their addiction, their religion, their lover and their mistress! I am that dirty, dark stain beneath the gloss of their white picket fences, the self-righteous stench behind the satire of their Sunday morning sermons and the fateful fall of their happily ever afters!”

 
“So tell me my love, if you truly are love why will you not love me!?”

 
Love simply speaks…”To truly live is to truly love. Life needs nothing of itself to sustain itself because when given it is not divided and it is love that makes life worth living. When life requires something outside if itself it cannot be life because it lives only for that which it seeks to possess. On the contrary, when life needs nothing other than itself it requires no other possessions and only lives to love”.

 

“You cannot be life for you have never truly lived, therefore how can you know love?”

Heroes

Heroes

                          By JFarrell

 

I wanna be a hero; don’t we all?

 

Whether super smooth Humphrey Bogart

Or action-packed Bruce Willis;

Super fit tennis ace Andy Murray

Or Mr Sexy-Voice himself, Barry White;

Courage, success, talent, charisma… and the ladies.

 

Heroes are important;

They are something to look up to,

To gain inspiration from;

And not just the superficial stuff;

Important stuff too.

 

“I will work until my illness stops me working,”

I still know little about Steve Jobs,

But.. there is something… different.. something inspirational..

And some people, like Einstein, Martin Luther King

Change the whole world, and everyone in it.

 

I wanna be a hero;

Most of all, to me;

Just to be someone I can accept, love and be proud of

To be someone I am happy with;

That would make me a hero.

Don’t Listen to Them

Don’t Listen to Them

By Jfarrell

 

Don’t listen to them;

Anyone who tells you “You can’t”;

Don’t listen;

Believe in yourself.

 

You CAN be anything you wanna be

Do ANYTHING you wanna do

You gotta work at it; you can’t snap your fingers and ‘pow’

But, believe in yourself

 

Learn, practice - everything IS achievable

By you; because you want to, you choose to;

It’s when you start believing “You can’t” that you’re stuffed

So believe in yourself

 

There is nothing that can’t be done;

We haven’t found a way to do everything,

Maybe you’ll find the answer and build our first time machine

Or teach the child who will cure cancer

Believe in yourself; I believe in You

 

:-)

Nothing, Like You

Nothing, Like You

By JFarrell

 

I am not the messiah

I am not a celebrity

Not wealthy, not important; I am

Nothing, like you

 

I am not particularly intelligent

Nor talented, special or anything other than average

I am a nobody; I am

Nothing, like you

 

I am a faceless, voiceless, meaningless statistic

A number on a piece of paper

It is cost effective to give me

Nothing, like you

 

Nothing; empty; space; absent; irrelevant;

Nothing; zero; zilch; sweet F. A.

I am absolutely

Nothing, just like You.

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

just because i dream i exist, do i have to choose to believe i do? :-)

Knowledge is the Key

Knowledge is the Key

By JFarrell

 

Knowledge is the key to betterment

Whether knowing how to split the atom

Or to open a tin of beans

Without knowing how to do it

You’ll get nowhere.

 

What we ALL see can be changed

War, famine, homelessness, injustice

But, knowing how to change it

Is the tricky bit

Everyone and no-one has answers

 

It is our responsibility, all of us

To LEARN, get an education, gain knowledge

And WE CAN ALL learn

And that also involves

Stopping letting people telling you what to think

 

Your mind is unique and great, as are you

And this is your world too

Please get involved and start making it better

I am making my dreams, a better world, reality

Come and join in, it’s your world too, take some responsibility

Guide Me

Guide Me

By Jfarrell

 

I was lost

Without direction

Without objective

Without destination

 

I was nowhere

In the land of fools

Being led by the blind

Forever falling

 

From when I woke

To falling exhausted into bed

I was lost

And going nowhere

 

Then

With the siren of the Siren

You called to me

And gave me a way

 

Your sweet voice

Whispers in my ear

Leading me over mountains

Guiding me through the deepest chasms

 

I am coming

As fast as I can

Call to me, guide me

Give me the wings and I will fly to you

 

My most wondrous Siren

Clouds

Clouds

By JFarrell

 

Like a film reel

The pictures flow before me

One by one

 

A majestic bird, an eagle,

Spreads it wings and takes flight;

A steam barge,

Chugging it’s way upriver;

A juggling clown,

Putting on his mask, to hide his tears;

Another man in a mask,

Highwayman, to take your gold at gunpoint;

This one shows the sun breaking,

Over a lovely, sleeping town;

This one shows the sun setting,

Over the smouldering, blackened ruins of a bombed village;

This one shows the beginning of all time,

That one shows the end of all time.

 

Clouds are beautiful and wondrous,

And such an inspiration,

For the imagination.

 

Look up,

You might too

See the beginning

And the end

Of everything.
