The one who doesn't sow

The one who doesn't sow

will never get the harvest

and lives on others good.

The one who understands it

is the wisest.

That one

will gather heavy harvest

from any little rood.

The Fellow Who Doesn't Fit In

He doesn't play sports drink alcohol or take dope and you might say he doesn't fit in
And he doesn't lust after young women and he's not seen as a man amongst men
He works hard to provide for his family and he leads a good and a clean life
And he is a nice man to talk to and he is faithful to his wife.

He's not a religious type person and he doesn't attend church on sunday
And he too in some ways a sinner the religious zealots might say
And some see him as a social outsider but to live clean should not be a sin
And he deserve respect not scorn the fellow who doesn't fit in.

He doesn't watch football on the t.v. or support any football team
And he's not part of any social club nor does he crave social esteem
Yet he has his many detractors in life it is so hard to win
And his type of man getting rarer the fellow who doesn't fit in.

He doesn't play cricket or football with his children as many a young father do
On sundays with his wife and his young son and daughter he's at the cinema, art gallery or zoo
And he is a man who loves Nature and is loving Nature a sin?
For he is looked on with suspicion the fellow who doesn't fit in.

Politics, women, money and work matters of such topics he tend to stay clear
And he's just your average type of person his children and his wife to him dear
Yet he is looked on as quite boring and his name is mentioned with a grin
And life isn't meant to be easy for the fellow who 'doesn't fit in'

Sorry doesn't make it right

Sorry
Doesn't make it right
When
All you've done
Is sit and fight
Sorry
Doesn't make it right
After
All the nights you've sat and cried
Sorry
Doesn't make it right
When
All you do is pretend
Sorry
Doesn't make it right
If
You just do it again....


Sorry doesn't make it right girls.. don't let SORRY be the reason you keep going!

That Doesn't Make Sense

Wait a minute?
That doesn't make sense!
Because you have become successful...
Doing what you have always done,
They feel you will become less successful,
If they ignored you?
I don't get it!
That doesn't make sense!
Haven't they always ignored you?
And you, them?
Wait a minute?
That doesn't make sense!
If you ignored them better than they have ignored you,
Wouldn't that make you even more successful?
And that's what you've done in the first place?
Maybe they're trying to get you to notice they're ignoring you?
And you're not paying them any attention?
But that's what's going on anyway?
Wait a minute?
That doesn't make sense!

'I know!
And less of it is being made everyday!
Hopefully this will become very lucrative? '

Escape

What you cannot escape is
the sheer handwork
what you cannot escape is
the momentum to keep your
dignity instead of denigration
So you are not dead or unassailable
The one mist or fog
which no one partake
The embellishment of
dreadful that haunts man in
In his, his or her
Just to elucidate as
a parlance of hope
when there is
no hope at all
All went well by the rhythm
of home-side chimneys
Where my Mom
was making bread
just the love which lures
For one who doesn't
make it humbug

I'm the Girl who!

Who am I
I'm the girl who stays behind,
I'm the girl with the the horrible past,
but yet I never complains.
I'm the girl who farther didn't want her,
I'm the girl who fought the bullies,
I'm the girl who is jealuous of the beautiful girls,
I'm the girl who doesn't cry I get heart broken,
I'm not the girl the who gives up, on everything,
I'm not the beautiful girl,
But I am Perfect in one or another.

Who Will Love The Little Girl In Me

who will LOVE that little girl with the smile
and heart of gold
who has put the past
behind her and whose secret remains
untold
who will CARE for that little girl now
that she's almost grown
though god has blessed her with
friends and family
she still feels alone
who will CRY WITH
the little girl who has been
heartbroken and used
who will HELP that little girl in a world
left confused
who will LOVE that little girl who looks for love in someone else
who will CRY FOR
the little girl in me
who doesn't even love herself....

Go, be brave

Go, be brave, step into a ring of fire
No excuses – it is your desire
It is the only choice to exist
Despite what people tell you,
The people don’t want to assist

Go, be brave, kill the beast
Free my people, free yourself at the least
He, who doesn't risk, never gets to drink champagne
Although, the people lack courage
These people will call you an insane

Go, be brave, take the plunge
Show your true colors,
Unleash the damn avalanche
When shit hits the fan, in a big stinking wave
The nature will punish cowards and reward the braves

Who Is It For You To Tell Me What's Right For Me?

who are you to tell me who i can't be,
to tell me who i can't be with,
to tell me who is right for me,
when you don't walk in my shoes,
i'm not going to be you,
so why are you trying to turn me into you,
i have a brain, i have a mind, i know what i want,
why can't you see that?
instead you see my flaws,
what i have to change about myself,
what if i don't want to be like everybody else?
i like my weirdness and my uniqueness,
why do i have to change for you to like me?
God made me who i am for a reason,
He doesn't make mistakes,
he makes gifts to present to the world,
why should we be ashamed for who we are?

Who Will Cry?

Who will cry for the little child who goes for days without food?
Who will cry for the little child who parents beat them?
Who will cry for the little child who is mistreated for being different?
Who will cry for the little child who goes unloved?
Who will cry for the little child whose stomach is swelled up?
Who will cry for the little child who doesn't have clothes to wear?
Who will cry for the little child who is shunned for not being popular?
Who will cry for the little child who is molested every night?
Who will cry for the little child who's parents are not around?
Who will cry for the little child who has to take care of his self?
Who will cry?
Will you cry?
Cause I have.

To Those Who Love Footy

To those who love footy a man of renown
The legend of sport from the little bush town
Footballers of his calibre hard to be found
On Grand Final day he was best on ground
But Tim the young artist one who doesn't like football
Says legends of sport don't interest him at all
To him the renowned locally raised footy player seems quite ordinary
Though many with him on that would disagree
He says sports fans elite sports people over-rate
That they are not worthy of the title of great
The greats of human history that historians recall
Were not sports people or never played football
And he says of the locally raised football legend I'm not putting him down
When I say he's an ordinary bloke from an ordinary town.

Who to blame for writers block?

Risen up from his cold dark tomb
the malevolent poet is alive again
his evil master has given him power
to confuse poets and bring them pain.
He's invisible to the poets eye
and he doesn't make a sound
his mission is to bring writers block
to all poets everywhere around.
The unaware poet stares at a blank screen
unable to create one single verse
the satanic force takes over his mind
his thoughts go from bad to worse.
The romantic poet thinks about death
his thoughts no longer on love and light
he wants to write about misery and war
and things that go bump in the night.
So the next time you can't write a poem
and your sitting there full of despair
you now know it's not you who's at fault
but it's the evil poet and he's over there!

The Only Person Who

The problem with an open book, is it can't know
How it feels, what it says, who it is.... only show
The problem with an open book is its fraught with confusion yet no answer
With danger yet no protection
How can i run from her?
When she's written all over me like an inscription
Open books don't have a say
Open books won't last more than a day
If left open, they cannot defend or close
Can't run away, no toes
Even if it's all an illusion
This delusion
This me, I'm the open book because I'm the the only
One who can't read me
The only one who doesn't know how I feel
So please tell me because I get hurt, but no one heals
I feel this way or that
But to me I don't know what is fact
What is dreamed and what is real
The only person who doesn't know me is me
Someone close it or kill it so then no one can see

Who Peeps On The Peeper?

Who peeps on the peeper?
God.
Who else keeps the peeper peeking,
But God.
Who doesn't get a wink of sleep...
As those who seek to take a peek.
Believing what is done they do,
Is out of sight.
And out of God's reach.
Thinking lessons learned...
God does not teach.

Who's Looking For A Lover

Who's looking for a lover?
Who's looking for a lover?
Early this morning while I was yawning
I got a warning thought
Somebody near me who doesn't fear me
Knows things I ain't been taught
Somebody older somebody bolder
Wants to get hold of me, yeah
Somebody smart wants my young heart
Our will is done, our will is done
Who's looking for a lover?
Who'll pick me out from all the crowd?
What thrills will I discover?
Will I be scared or do myself proud?
Who's looking for a lover?
Who's looking for a lover?
Maybe some honey just wants my money
Hey that's a funny tought
Someone appealing could set me reeling
And get my feeling caught
Somebody older somebody bolder
Wants to get hold of me, yeah
Somebody strong help me belong
Answer my song, answer my song
Who's looking for a lover?
Who wants to know what I can do?
Who's looking for a lover?
I'm looking everywhere for you
Somebody older somebody bolder
Wants to get hold of me, yeah
Somebody strong help me belong
Answer my song, answer my song
Who's looking for a lover?
Who'll pick me out from all the crowd?
What thrills will I discover?
Will I be scared or do myself proud?

Gates Of Leaders

On the streets I walk, I see shop windows that are broken
I know I heard the fire extinguisher had spoken
but I never knew, and can never accept what we loose
I just don't know how me and you became so confused.

Because you and I have lost, we can't find
we can't speak properly because they make us lose our mind
me and you are the wrong way around
because time doesn't go backwards that's what I've found.

An apple from a tree falling will always want the ground
an audience for a band, they will always want the sound
a person who wants to learn, they will want to be taught
and a heart without no mind is searching for a thought.

To those I love I hate to think that we don't have what it takes
but if they don't teach us we'll never know how to climb the gates
cause we bring out knifes and Fork's with empty plates
and smash reflections, we smash until the window breaks.

I will work my whole life for a job I can't get
and I will do it all for my pension cause they have promised me it will remove my debt
but I asked for my loan a million times and haven't received one penny yet
I have just joined the unemployment line and I'm ready to place my bet.

I see a gambler who doesn't know how to get the dream
he is sat next to a homeless man who is an ex marine
and walking in is a gang member who has blew his life
a mother sits and cries because her son has just committed suicide.

I wanna tell the politicians they can no longer hide
that you are not flying our flag when you have took our pride
you have took the legs from men who once did walk
and your fighting a war but all you ever do is talk.

A prime minister has confused us because he has spoken
so the knife I bring forward is to cut him open
and the plate is for his head for thinking he fought
I don't know but I think he would want me to use the Fork
because I know he knows that animals are hungry after all
and that's why the gate is so big and really I am not that tall
but I put all I have on my belief that we are not too small.
