Take Your Time: It’s your Story

We want answers in a pile of questions
We feel lost yet there are so many directions
So many paths we could take
So many rules we have to break
Cause we are taught about the structure
The way things are built but not how they fracture 
How we are born with a chosen identity 
Defined by our gender and ethnicity 
Told that we must study to be on top
But now all we want to do is stop
Stop for a moment, pause, press rewind 
So we can breathe and have a chance to find 
Answers of the What ifs, Maybes and what do I do? 
Maybe there is something, anything, a clue 
Cause we have dreams and we have hopes 
But no one can teaches us how to cope
When life stills, when our dreams shatters 
What to do when you don’t even what matters
They told us in school that this is how life is 
But it’s not, there must have been something they missed 
They said that life is set and we will do fine 
Will have a degree and someone you can call mine 
Have a ring on your finger and a baby in hand 
Have life figured out but those people don’t understand 
Thinking we will die happy in our graves
But what if that’s not what God paved
Cause you failed high school, it was so tough 
You studied so hard but it’s wasn’t enough 
Got called dumb, you’re so stupid unlike the rest 
They all shout: you should have tried your best 
Fallen in love too many times, started to lose count 
Your heart been broken and mended over again, emotions start to mount 
You thought you had it- it lasted 4 years 
You chose to end it you’re covered in tears 
Believed so long that you’ll find your soulmate 
But then your heart whispers: what is it’s too late? 
Landed your first job at 21 at the grocery store 
Was so happy cause it will open more doors 
Been there for 2 years and you barely have no money 
So much for that degree, what are you doing with your life honey?
Your friends are married some have kids 
Then here are you not even knowing what you did 
What did you achieve from being so dumb
Where did Love take you apart from being numb 
What did life give you cause you are just stuck 
Asking you questions like do you give a fuck
Of course you do that’s why you continue on
Cause one mistake doesn’t mean you’re wrong 
One failure doesn’t mean you can’t succeed 
Wanting to be loved has nothing to do with greed 
Working a small job is hard for now but in 2 more years you will find 
That waiting patiently is a quality of a heart that is still kind 
Kind enough to let people in and strong enough to let it be broken 
Because though hardship and failure you will soon be outspoken 
On things you didn’t even know then and experiences you’ll cherish today 
And you’ll understand that maybe this was God’s way 
Of telling you to go at your own pace 
Take the downfalls and just embrace 
The little things coming together right before your eyes 
Of the tiny successes that life has disguised 
Cause you are breathing, look you’re alive 
And sooner or later, you will walk out there and thrive 
Sometimes life has a funny way of planning out 
Your story is being written and only you know what’s it about 
Take a step, be thankful and just live cause it’s not a crime 
Your life is yours so just take your time.

Famous

Day after Day, we fight
Always in the dark, never the light
Been going on for years, not wanting forever
Sticking it out for the social, they want us together
Gonna become famous, but we both cannot win
We can not have it all, no matter how much we sin
Cause you are the Player, Mr Bad Boy, you play the game
I’m the shy girl, so friggin needy and clingy, what a shame
We have the looks and the style, but in the end its a battle of brain
Cause once this is all over, I will bathe in sunshine and make it rain
I hate to be the one to tell you, but you must know I never lose
You’re the people’s prince but in the end, it is the Queen they choose.
So are you ready for reality, do you think you can handle
The amount of trouble I bring, cause I’m tomorrow’s scandal
“Shy Girl Comes Out of her Shell- Was The Romance Just Pretend?
Cause she’s been snogging off Mr Bad Boy’s long time best friend
Sorry honey, you have been so blinded, you look like such a mess
I have no feelings for you, boo- fame is a bitch and that’s just lust I guess

Hangover

Blink some more, go on I dare you
Leap forward, I know you want to
Take control, the King of Clubs
Pick your poison, the Prince of Pubs
Strutting around like it’s your castle
Never up for a fight, letting his boys hustle
Sitting on this throne made of plastic and foam
Picking up random girls cause he knows he’s alone
A life filled with bottles and miscellaneous pills
His mind so blurred out he is seeing stills
Pictures he only want to see, illusion
Thinking he is some God, delusion
Been smoking too many, damn too high
He has been stoned and he cannot see why
His mother has left and his dad stopped caring
His brother died and he is here plain daring
The guys to fight and the girls to beg
Been downing too much, he’s emptied the keg
But the ecstasy only last for a short time
Cannot last if he hasn’t got a single dime
Cannot keep thinking he is the duke
Needs to go home cause soon he’ll puke
Go out the door, go steal a Range Rover
Mate, wake up, you’re fucking hangover!

A Fairytale Story

The mirror may be cracked, it may be broken
The crown was dusty but my heart has spoken
You’re from the past, you are just a freaking ghost
A guy so far away, dreaming of being on the coast
You tend to disappear to the point of being gone
Yet you’ll come back whispering that you’re the one
The one who’ll set me free, the one who’ll be there
As I sit here in my tower, I can’t find you anywhere
You have flown on your high horse, been riding the seven seas
Forgotten the princess you said you’ll come back for with ease
Now you have returned with the gold and a dress
Looking for the princess you left in distress
Can’t find her anywhere, you shouldn’t have lied
She has changed her mind, her love for you has died
While you lived your life, she has moved on
Think she’ll change back for you, you’re wrong
She sits on her throne, head held high
You plead with her, your mistakes- you deny
You are on your knees and pretend to be a lover’s fool
But this princess is Queen now, you know that she rules
This house, this kingdom, this land, this throne and you
You shouldn’t have declared your love if it is wasn’t true
She silences the people and tells you to get up- NOW!
She takes a sword and demands you to show respect, BOW!
She looks you in the eyes and you see her stare is  ever so cold
Then pushes the sword in you, oh boy you have just been told!

Messy Situation

I need the toilet really bad
The pain is making me really mad
But my anger makes it slide more
Out of my backside or back door
I think I ate something funny
Not enough fibre but a lot of honey
I tried to hold it in but it couldn’t wait
My ass and the toilet had a very long date
I thought one date was enough but I guess I’m wrong
I don’t know if I can make it, the smell is still strong
I decided to go for a run, maybe it will go back in
Maybe I could just go do it in the community bin
I turned the corner and there stood my crush
Damn, why is he here when I really need to rush
He wanted to talk and I smiled a small smile
Please not now! I wish I could run another mile
But it was coming, my bottom just didn’t want to quit
FFFAAAARRRTTTT!! The mud volcano suddenly erupted, SHIT!

 

Confess

Eyes rolling and she starts to tut
Has you around her finger and mouth shut
Cannot move cause you are wrapped in thorns
Tell yourself she’s an angel with horns
Yet you give your heart, never speak your mind
She has your eyes covered from behind
Cannot see her wandering into sin
She stares at you, you never win
She walks around you like a puddle
Boy you need to wake up from the muddle
From the cloud, the mist, the fog
She has been out kissing lots of dogs
Every night, every moment, every day
Mate, she is far out, been led astray
By filthy boys who give her time
While you work the dollar and the dime
She goes off knowing you’re not home
She has already declared you all alone
Act now before its too late
Cannot sit, please don’t wait
For your lover is already in bed
Under the sheets, giving head
She does it all the time, didn’t you know
For the last two years, you’ve been with a hoe.

A Heavy Weight

I don’t know what it is, maybe a lack of sleep
Too much going on and been falling so deep
Tired all the time yet I’ve sat still
For such a long time, waiting until
Something happens or I need to be free
From the dozen of thoughts nagging at me
The meaning of life and questions of love
Praying for answers from the man up above
They say: Keep going and you will find
All the things you have left behind
Never turn around and look to the past
Wondering if things would ever last
Follow the rules they are there to be followed
Open your heart even though it’s been hollowed
Mistakes are for people looking to succeed
Perfection is how you’ll get the deed
To your hard work and all the labour
No more asking strangers for a favour
Too bad it isn’t all too easy
When all the weight makes you feel queasy
The weight in your heart and in your head
How you’ll just grow old and tired instead
Cannot shift the weight, it is here to stay
Day and night, no matter no much you pray
