Can I Get A Refund?

Can I Get A Refund?

   By jfarrell

 

This is not what I signed up for;

“These are the rules…”

I followed the rules.

 

And I am nowhere I can recognise;

Where are my family?

My friends?

 

Oh, yeah;

Family - separated long ago;

Friends - I drove the last I had away!

 

“Jim, you’re so negative”

“Jim, you’re weak, tell you what…”

“Don’t phone me.”

 

So, I didn’t.

“Jim, my computer’s broken, can you fix it?”

What did I miss?

 

I’m so desperate for friends I’ll jump when he says?

I’m so drunk I won’t remember what he said;

I’m so stupid, it won’t matter?

 

I want a refund!

People suck!

Can I get a refund please?

Heroes

Heroes

                          By JFarrell

 

I wanna be a hero; don’t we all?

 

Whether super smooth Humphrey Bogart

Or action-packed Bruce Willis;

Super fit tennis ace Andy Murray

Or Mr Sexy-Voice himself, Barry White;

Courage, success, talent, charisma… and the ladies.

 

Heroes are important;

They are something to look up to,

To gain inspiration from;

And not just the superficial stuff;

Important stuff too.

 

“I will work until my illness stops me working,”

I still know little about Steve Jobs,

But.. there is something… different.. something inspirational..

And some people, like Einstein, Martin Luther King

Change the whole world, and everyone in it.

 

I wanna be a hero;

Most of all, to me;

Just to be someone I can accept, love and be proud of

To be someone I am happy with;

That would make me a hero.
