Come On Now, We Can Do This!

I speak up but I'm not heard

so what's the point it's so absurd

Why try to get the message out

if no one cares what it's about

 

We need to do whatever we can

to protect the environment we need a plan

Our world is such a toxic place

Damage that's done we can't erase

 

We can make a difference now

and I'm gonna tell you how

Every babystep you take

makes a difference no mistake

 

Speak up for those without a voice

really make a conscious choice

to sign petitions, boycott stuff

let them know enough's enough

 

Endangered species go extinct

it happens fast within a blink

They need protection all the time

You can speak up right online

 

Oil spills happen all the time

yet they build more pipelines

that damage our water supply

We need to stop them we need to try

 

GMOs cause nothing but harm

we need to stop them sound the alarm

their pesticides poison us all

we need immediate withdrawal

 

Ban GMOs and pesticdes

so life on this planet may thrive

Ban chemtrails that pollute our air

No more pandemics ban biowarfare

 

No more fracking or oil pipelines

We need water to survive

No more deforestation

Focus on restoration

 

So many things need to be fixed

Come on now, we can do this!

 

 

 

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this one awhile back for a project on HitRecord...forgot to share it here. Wanted to share it so it doesn't get lost...

No Self Esteem

I never feel good enough

I have no self esteem

I tend to sabotage my stuff

Do you know what I mean

 

What Do I Know Anyway

I have nothing important to say

What do I know anyway

No one cares what I think

I could be the missing link

 

The more I learn the less I know

and yet I get on with the show

I know I don't know everything

No one does no matter what they think

 

Those who know that they don't know

have lots and lots of room to grow

Those who think they know it all

are pushed up against a wall

 

Keep an open mind

maybe you will find

that you can unwind

that's how it's designed

I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

 

WHY DO MAD SCIENTISTS

DO SO MANY THINGS LIKE THIS

GMOs AND PESTICIDES

MESSING WITH ALL OF OUR LIVES

OUR TOXIC WORLD KEEPS GETTING WORSE AND

IT'S AFFECTING EVERY PERSON

 

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

 

WHAT'S THIS WORLD COMING TO

WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO

SIGN PETITIONS BOYCOTT STUFF

DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ENOUGH

WILL THIS NONSENSE EVER END

SEEMS TO BE A CONSTANT TREND

 

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

 

NOW WE GOT THIS SUPERBUG

CRAWLED OUT FROM UNDER A RUG

WHERE THEY SWEEP THE TRUTH AWAY

BIOWARFARE UNDERWAY

YOU CAN'T BE CAREFUL ENOUGH

CONTEMPLATING THIS IS TOUGH

 

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

I DON'T WANNA I DON'T WANNA COMPLAIN

BUT THIS SITUATION DRIVES ME INSANE

 

SOMETHING'S GOTTA CHANGE

Dare to Tell Me a Lie

Why do you dare to tell me a lie

I'll tell you right now you better not try

 

It doesn't matter what you say

Your shifty eyes give you away

It doesn't matter what you do 

I can see right through you

 

Why do you dare to tell me a lie

I'll tell you right now you better not try

 

Liar liar pants on fire

hear them singing in the choir

Your nose is growing really long

I can tell that you've done wrong

 

Why do you dare to tell me a lie

I'll tell you right now you better not try

 

You crossed your fingers behind your back

that doesn't give you any slack

You crossed your fingers and your toes

it doesn't matter your nose still grows

 

Why do you dare to tell me a lie

I'll tell you right now you better not try

Why do you dare to tell me a lie

I'll tell you right now you better not try

Blur the Lines

It's your turn to blur the lines

Laughter helps you anytime

Shady thoughts may cross your mind

planting seeds you've redefined

 

Fresh thoughts coming from within

Cool to play around with them

You may find you have a flare

to run with them if you dare 

 

It's your turn to blur the lines

Laughter helps you anytime

Shady thoughts may cross your mind

planting seeds you've redefined

 

Roses pinch you with their thorns

Don't say that you weren't warned

Bees may sting and dogs may bite

Don't avoid them cuz they might

 

It's your turn to blur the lines

Laughter helps you anytime

Shady thoughts may cross your mind

planting seeds you've redefined

 

Birds may sing or poop on you

doesn't mean avoid them too

Glass half empty or half full

guess it all depends on you

 

It's your turn to blur the lines

Laughter helps you anytime

Shady thoughts may cross your mind

planting seeds you've redefined

The Ghost

 Had a white bike

called it The Ghost

I really liked

the way it could coast

 

Riding around

all over town

feeling the breeze

put me at ease

 

Coasting along

singing a song

such a delight

riding that bike

 

Had a white bike

called it The Ghost

I really liked

the way it could coast

 

I'd disappear

riding that bike

It's pretty clear

it's something I liked

 

Hours would pass

Trips went by fast

Traveling along

Singing my song

 

Had a white bike

called it The Ghost

I really liked

the way it could coast

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Been doing SongFancy five songs in five days challenge...I am not too good with coming up with backing chords and don't always have a melody idea for my lyrics but I have been posting lyrics daily...this was day five songwriting prompt was White Bicycle....

Abstract Thoughts

When abstract thoughts become too clear

You may have lost your mind my dear

That's OK that's what we want

to clear our mind for abstract thoughts

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I was doing an exercise for one hundred days of songwriting where you just write whatever for ten minutes straight and then see if you have anything you can use...it inspired writing this poem cuz it made me think of a few abstract poems I wrote with a couple friends of mine ages ago...

You Can Turn Your Mess into a Message

You can turn your mess

into a message

You can do your best

sharing advice

 

You can turn your mess

into a message

Put it to the test

That would be nice

 

Sharing what you learn

can be impressive

Sharing your concern

Being progressive

 

Everywhere you turn

So much is out there

Everything you learn

helps you prepare

 

You can turn your mess

into a message

You can do your best

sharing advice

 

You can turn your mess

into a message

Put it to the test

That would be nice

 

We've all been there

We all can share

Just be aware

 

You can turn your mess

into a message 

You can do your best

sharing advice

 

You can turn your mess

into a message

Put it to the test

That would be nice
