Don’t Worry, Kid – Promote Yourself

bluebirdxxxxxxxxx
I shed my skin many years ago.

At the back of those high trees in junior school.
That never ever seemed to grow gold in autumn.

It’s still there I bet – petrified. Old. stone skin.
Knees supporting a chin somehow still held high.
With a muddy arse on blooded school trousers.

Just still lacking whatever that place kept
Telling me I lacked.

We are different people him and I
He is my Bukowski’s bluebird
The boy I nurture and protect. As me and my own.

No one sees him – no one hurts him.

Only problem is –
He tells me what he used to tell everybody
“I’m fine, nothing to worry about, I just fell over”

I wish I didn’t know any different.

On This Christmas Night

 Christmas night gillian

The snowflakes glisten

The children listen

For Santa on his sleigh

Church bells are ringing

The choir is singing

On this Christmas night

The Christmas tree

Stands dressed in gold

With presents

Sparkling and bold

White carpets of snow

Lay all of aglow

The stars sparkle bright

On this Christmas night

The mince pies are out

Next to the pint of stout

Awaiting Santa Claus

On this cold winters night

As children wait

For the night to unfold

When all of their dreams

Will turn to gold

Pigeons

These city pigeons

Strolling around our feet

As though we are St Francis,

Sticking out their necks

Intent on fossicking,

We envy their waddling nonchalance

As we with trepidation tread

Past chewing gum and litter

On streets unpaved with gold

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream


 
In the second year of his reign Nebuchadnezzar had a dream,
He called his magicians, astrologers, sorcerers and Chaldeans to provide an
explanation,
Unfortunately for them he could not remember what the dream was all about,
So none of the wise men could provide an interpretation.
 
The Chaldeans told the King that no-one would be able to explain the dream
He knew then unless he could provide them with more information,
For this cause the King was very angry,
And ordered that all the wise men should be put to death7 if they did not provide an
explanation.
 
When Daniel heard of this edict he went to see the King,
For he and the other Princes were now included amongst the wise men of the nation,
He told the King that if he was given a little time,
That he would be able to provide an interpretation.
 
Soon afterwards Daniel returned to the presence of the King,
To report that he had been speaking to Jehovah who was the God of the Jewish
Nation,
That the details of the King’s dream had been revealed to him,
And that he was now able to reveal the dream and to provide an interpretation.
 
In the dream you saw a beast with a head of pure gold,
Its shoulders and arms were made of silver, his belly made of brass7
His legs were made of iron, and his feet of iron and clay,
You saw a rock thrown which struck the feet of iron and clay,
Which caused the beast to collapse into complete disarray.
 
The beast represents the Kingdom of which you are the head,
The head of gold shows the power of the Kingdom in the present day,
But as the value of the metals diminish down to the feet,
So the Kingdom will diminish and slowly pass away.
 
When this has happened the God of Heaven will set up another Kingdom,
A Kingdom which shall last for ever more,
In the dream God has revealed to you what shall come to pass,
And the dream and the interpretation are sure.
 
King Nebuchadnezzar fell down on his face and worshipped Daniel,
And ordered that the people should offer him an oblation,
He recognised Daniel’s God as the God of Gods and the Lord of Kings,
And Daniel was recognised as a great man throughout the nation.

Be Positive


Be positive whoever you are
See positivity as your guiding star
Luck will always be on your side
If you take the positive ride
This ride will take you to the perfect place
So let us begin, there is no time to waste
Negative thoughts are now dismissed,
Positive thoughts are at the top of your list
So jump on the ride of the positive tour
Don’t let negativity knock on your door
Sometimes negative thoughts will reappear
Just knock them down with your positive sphere
This is the best mental weapon you hold,
Keep it safe, treasure this piece of gold
Begin your tour with your guiding star
Be strong and you will travel far,
Once you take steps along this path
Your positive thoughts will never look back

My legacy

The sun doesn’t feel the same any more

But it helps to dry my tears,

Someone is missing from my life

Who has been there for years and years,

My laughter is not the same any more

It doesn’t come from the heart,

Only a mother understands how I feel

When with their child they have to part,

You left me a priceless legacy son

Of love and stories untold,

Of how life is and how it should be

That is worth more to me than gold

XX
