I’m just going to push the boat out, spit some words and mess about. That’s what I love about writing, when you start out you have no idea what to talk about. Then words just appear out of thin air, with flare, with the power of a prayer.
Single words can lead to warfare or they can take you from little bear to billionaire. Most people are unaware of the power they possess, so they walk around in a mess, or worst still in distress. Yet they say they want success. But they cant even control their words, with any kind of finesse.
“Thats unfair, you know I’m depressed!”
Ok, I guess you need a recess. Most people say they want to succeed, but have no idea what it takes, so they sit at home smoking weed.
“It’s ok for you, you had it easy!”
It took me 20 years to get here. I’ve got ringing in both my ears.
“You must be crazy?”
Yeah, but like Jay-Z, I’m not lazy.
“20 years sounds like a life sentence?”
True, but now it feels like transcendence. Self rule is a tool you can use to gain your Independence.
Word are flowing through me like i never thought they would and what I have to say will hit harder than I could. You have been living in a dream world and you know it to be true, There is noone you will find that will talk the truth to you.
A man came before me that was killed for his views, and the wisdom that he taught me I will share with you. His message was one of Love and that has been truly lost, hidden behind a dogma that only separates us.
In the lockdown, I started to write a lot of poetry. I have always been creative, writing and producing music for 15 years after leaving university. But in the from an early age, I would write from time to time, ideas for books, poems, thoughts, ideas.
Then in 2014, I decided to take a year out and travel. That year turned out to be the turning point. I came back a new person. Still very passionate about music but knew that my life was more to do with the written word.
For the last five years since returning, I have spent as a freelance writer, but in lockdown, I started to write poetry. Just waves of poetry came out of me, which I keep in note pads.
One-piece stood out, and by pure accident, I came across some footage on YouTube of a GoPro competition winner and decided to put the words with the video. Was very happy with results so thought id start a blog and share my other poems.
Most are unfinished at present, but that may change as I begin to upload.
My main aim has always been to inspire. First, it was through my music, then my writing now my poetry. When you strip back everything to, once referenced as the pilot light, that inner drive, I found that its to inspire and motivate people.
Thanks for reading. If you would like to watch a video of the first spoken word poem, follow the link. Cheers.
