Bad Hair Day

Written in support of stars.org.uk new fundraising idea to post a picture of your #STARSbadhairday on Facebook or Twitter and text GINZ47 £3 or HAIR11 £3 to 70070 to donate to this worthy organisation.  And what’s more you don’t need hair to do so – just post a picture of yourself first thing in the morning and help raise awareness of the aims of this charity.  

Crazy wild and frizzy frizz
Bad hair day – Lordy lord
Where brush and comb and cream to tame
Just cannot be ignored

Save else all kids will run away
And on the streets they’ll hide
And shut their curtains to prevent
The madness there outside

And warnings will alert – watch out!
Delirium in hair
Of untamed beast with fuzzy wig
On top of woman there!

And word will spread across the land
In Chinese whispers go
That hair that bad just ain’t so good
Like nest of mangy crow

For such a mane suggests much more
Unkempt and wild and free
A lion – a wilderbeast – a fright
And not just little me!

Rags Over Riches

Throw me rags over riches
Cast me poverty less strife
I’ll give peace and understanding
And won’t twist in the knife

I’ll call on strength; resilience
And power to love despite
The ways of darkness, fierce control
That take a bitter bite

And my throne will be one that is
A seat of harmony
Save crown of thorns that spears my head
From rose brier bleeding me

And I’ll still give out compassion
A heart that does not hate
Forgiveness at my very core
And hope that liberates

I’ll bear the load serenely
Whatever hits my face
And live a life that’s founded on
Pure kindness filled with grace

Are We Nearly There Yet?

Are we nearly there yet?
Those words all parents hate
That climb aboard with little child
And on the nerves do grate!

For as soon as engine starts up
And wheels begin to turn
They just believe that time will stop
As  journeys end returns

And in that very instant
All children seem to think
That by some “Who’ish” magic
They’lll trade those forty winks

And reach their destination
Almost immediately
Where “are we nearly there yet”
Will become – “what is for tea?”

Watch Out

He thinks he is a tiger
Or maybe a wild lion
Stalking across the prairie by
The power of Orion
With claws as sharp as pincers
And teeth honed to devour
The flesh of those he pounces on
Dare they stand still or cower
With eyes slit green with envy
And stealth his weapon too
Watch out the cat who sleeps and dreams
For he might jump on you!

Philosophy of Tolerance

There’s a practice amongst humans
Where opinions are a vent
To understand the raison d’être
The purpose; no relent
To box in categories how
Just each conjecture lies
To label them philosophy
Postulate and theorise

Then each of these is made into
A system of beliefs
A way; a vision; attitude
That aims to give relief
To human constant questioning
Of what has gone before
Or what will happen in the next
What’s through life’s tight sealed door

But still the bottom line is this
That whilst we might believe
In select ideas and outlooks
That we choose to conceive
All have a perfect credence
When they are bought into
For minds aid understanding
When hearts have buy in too

And so why some fight; go to war
Dictating what is right
Just seems to block perspective
And fails to have insight
For there’s a patchwork blanket
That spreads across the Earth
Humanity’s opinions
The bedrock that gives worth

The values each subscribe to and
The ways they want to be
Opinions, sentiments and thoughts
To comprise philosophy
So in essence it might be the case
That there’s more than one way
If we all chose to synchronize
With tolerance each day

Philosophy of Tolerance

Doubt

This was inspired by fellow blogger’s poem Self Worth. Check out his writings – they are fab :-)

A little doubt is helpful
For awareness shall we say
A check that rids us of conceit
That stops us falling prey
To arrogance; pomposity
But go too far and then
That doubt becomes self limiting
And pushes us again
Into a place uncertain
Where nothing seems quite right
Cos there we lose all self esteem
Ourselves fall out of sight
So the best that we can aim for
Is a fence on which to sit
That strikes the balance in between
Self doubt and puffed up wit

Yet drowning unseen
