Pleasure in the darkness and pain in the light
So much dysfunction that we've now lost sight
Too scared to be happy, we've forgotten how it feels
Comfort in the chaos, the struggle is real

Locked in a room with only insults for walls
Deja vu, echoes of the past call
A manifestation of exactly what we think
Yet we're all so programmed, we can't see the link

We try to help each other but we're ruined as one
Too scared to be alone so we just carry on.

Covering our eyes, distorting our vision
Keeping us locked in, our delusional prison
Is it time to lift these veils of illusion?
Rip away with force, this optical intrusion

But once it's lifted, what will we see?
A flawed you and an imperfect me
We are all mirrors, reflecting one another
What you detest about yourself you'll despise in your lover

Try to see without the veil, the next time you judge
Realising you flaws, should you hold that grudge?
This life is short, no promises of tomorrow
Live through your heart, because time we can't borrow
Life love illusion time death regret rhyme poetry lifelessons thebiggerpicture

Writer's block, still in shock from all those times you said I couldn't.
But I'll write these rhymes with this mind of mine and do everything you said I wouldn't.

So I read your letters and I saw more lies
The bad thing is, it came as no surprise
See I always knew way more than you thought
See I always gave way more than you brought

For you I was merely a temporary distraction
My tears and sadness bringing twisted satisfaction
Mind games, manipulation, ulterior motives and lies
All hidden underneath your fake, obvious disguise

You just fail to see the lessons in all
Shifting the blame when responsibilities call
In the end, the biggest loss, well it's always yours
So many new beginnings ending with closed doors

When will you face those demons within?
When you release your ego, let healing begin
you're trapped in the prison of your own making
You're callous and mean, you live life for the taking

For me though, I'll heal, I have a good heart
My new life awaits, right now it will start

Remembering that day, unknowingly the last
Bitter, sweet, haunting, visions of the past
He was vibrant and seemed so free
Wasn't long for this world then gone was he

A courageous man with a great big heart
A viking warrior, right from the start
A magical mind, an enlightened brain
Your big Brother's passed, the violent pain

Three years on and still so sureal
Grief is horrific, how does one heal?
He was my hero, biggest inspiration
A rare intelligence with fierce dedication

We feel him at times, his energy is there
Smiles and sadness, in this we share
I found a white feather on the ground
It's his way of saying, he's still around

Can't bring ourselves to say goodbye
Another question that begins with WHY?

Reality, in truth, is maybe just a dream
A hologram of thoughts, you can choose your own theme
The outside, a reflection, of all that you desire
Keep the mind positive or deficiency may transpire

See we are the actors, our thoughts dictate our roles
A human experience, navigated by our souls
The dream is not as rigid as we are led to believe
The mind can alter circumstance but the mind can still decieve

If everything is energy then keep your vibration high
Vibrate at such a level that the limit becomes the sky
Remember it's YOUR dream and only YOU can change the script
Whatever comes your way, you are more than equipped

Reality, in truth, is maybe just a dream
A hologram of thoughts, things aren't always what they seem

Be the change you want to see
Try not to judge, let others be
The rain will stop, the storm shall pass
Pleasure is pleasing and love can last

Set up for sorrow, it's hard to see
Open your eyes, switch off your tv
Put down the remote and venture outside
Get out in to nature where healing resides

Turn off your phone, log off the net
You'll be surprised with the solace you get
Write a poem, cook a nice meal
Declare your love, see how it feels

Put away the plastic, stop doing your hair
Go back to basics, even though it's rare
Laugh at your troubles, hug it out
Why are you frowning, what's that all about
A sign of the times, the information age
Escape from the trap, break out of your cage

Tell me now, how do you feel
Please keep it up, do we have a deal
Memories last but gadgets do not
Live your life fully, run from the rot
