I will be 50 in 2 weeks (23 december);

Should I have a party? Celebrate?

Cast your votes now please.


And not a joke….

My friend’, I asked, I gonna have party will you come?…


“yeah, I’ll happilly come to your party, I’m your best friend….

But don’t be negative, at your party.”….

He’s the one calling people names,…

But I’m the negative one?

Party cancelled.


But life,

Prospects, dreams have changed since then;

So very few weeks ago.


It used to be said ‘life begins at 40’;

Is 50 the new 40?

I’ve spent 20 years overdosing, hanging cutting my coward wrists

To not be here for 50!


It’s clear I’m incapable of decision…

So like Big Brother….

You decide, cast your votes…

50th birthday party?

Yes or no?

Sorry to say

But I hadn't the time

Or wasn't told today

That you are a day younger

I mean older (hehe)


So I took some time out

To make you something special

So there is no need to shout

Because here is a card

Made from the heart


I hope you enjoy what you read

Because I'm here if you are ever in need 

For I'll be here till the end

And together forever

We'll always be

Best of friends

Happy Birthday is what I want to send

Theodora onkea Celebration

The joy of writing can set you free, 

As you put pen to paper the words start to flow. 


Each time you start cooking, 

You enjoy fruitful rewards abundantly provided. 


Painting each picture brings,

Stirs emotions deep inside those around you. 


Each art museum you frequent, 

Opens your mind to new perspective. 


Have a Happy Birthday

It was forty-three years ago today when I left your womb.

Your death has brought about tears, despair and gloom.

Usually pregnancies last nine months but you had a longer wait.

You carried me for ten months, I was a month late.

From the day I was born until the day you died, we shared a special bond.

You were always there for me and I'm still unhappy because you're gone.

You didn't deserve to suffer the way you did, what a horrible fate.

The doctors did all they could but you went to the hospital too late.

I didn't know what I had until I lost it and I lost you too soon.

It was forty-three years ago today when I left your womb.

It’s My Birthday Today!

This is the day,

That welcomed me,

To the earth,

With the touch of ray.  


Outer existence of mine,

Started making,

Its presence felt,

From then on in a manner fine.


May my dreams come true,

This is what I ardently wish, yes I do.

I don't believe I'm as old as I am

Inside im just a little kid wishing I was sixteen I wish It would of been a better sweet dream

Growing older each day is to me it seems

The saddest realization of this sinking ship

Birthdays are the worst

another year gone

another year closer to death

another year closer to that nail

in the cofin

a new number to put above

your head

and a new number to say when

someone asks you your age

atleast for another year anyway

thats if you last the full


but you got to get through that hell

of a day first

you have to push through the family

that turn up with cards and stupid

presents you don't want

and they stand around breathing

around you

"happy birthday"


"Have a good day"

"I remember when you was

this big"

"You've put weight on"

all i want to say to these

b*****ds is

"how long you got left"

and "When you buggering off


it's just a drag

sleep or booze is the only

way out

drink myself into a coma

but i can't do that because i

have to do a speech

say thank you to the people i

have no interest in seeing

"thanks for coming"

"it's been fun"

lies are fantastic on a day like


and i recommend people try


now just to eat the ice cream

and cake and pass out on the best

birthday present someone like

me could get Jack Daniels

I hope i never see this day


birthdays are just the worst.

Happy Birthday, Mom

If you hadn't died in March, you would've turned 65 today.

Life hasn't been as good since you passed away.

Everybody who knew you, knew that you were nice.

But I took things for granted and now I'm paying the price.

I thought you'd live for another ten to fifteen years.

It's been tough to accept that you're no longer here.

If you had survived, I was going to take care of you.

I didn't know what I had until I lost it and that is true.

When you celebrated your birthday last year, you were alive and well.

I didn't know how sick you would become, I was unable to tell.

Seeing you suffer during your last days, made my heart break.

Even though you're dead, I still bought you a birthday cake.

I promised that I'd buy you a cake this year and I'm a man of my word.

God is much happier now because you're with him, believe me that's assured.

For your Birthday

To the blonde lady, beautiful as can be
I give you this poem written by me.
With all of my heart, let me just say
I wish for yo, the happiest birthday!

For a woman of 50; your lookin damn good.

I'd ask you out, if I thought that you would.

You dont show your age of that I'd swear
and I'm not just saying it... becauseI care.
You're the bright ray of sunshine that each of us need
You're the one that I want to... share a bowl of weed.
So today is your day, may you do what you will
but don't tip the bong and your drink... dont spill!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet sheri, hope you like this simple rhyme
party hard, love long & please.... have a good time.
