Show Me

I don’t like being told what to think I once said.

I prefer to be alive than dead.

I may agree with you when you agree with me.

I discuss with Plato over a cup of tea.

You may be convinced you are right I am not.

You dogmatic fool stop talking rot!

What everyone knows is wrong, don’t follow the herd.

You are your own man or woman don’t be absurd.

What is popular is not always wrong, Susan Boyle can sing a song.

What is popular is not always right, many drugs and madnesses are popular, goodnight.

You recognise the truth when you hear it you know.

It is not true because a person told you so.

Who owns your brain, your mind?

I say you do, I am not the dictator kind.

The truth is there for you to find.

Where, in you and I hope, me too.

Should animals be in a zoo?

Don’t tell me, show me, that is what it means to teach.

In a mad world sanity is within reach.

It is a pity obvious things need to be said.

When you are alive you are not dead.

Be alive to the new, the old, the true.

Then you are you.

Alive too.

Search and find peace of mind.

When you stop learning you are dead.

A wise man said.

Its hard to say a lot in a few words, but I try.

Maybe I’ll get it right before I die.

Ask the greatest question, why.

Understanding comes to those who try.

Goodbye.

Autobiography

If I write my life story will it be biased, self serving and subjective?

I ask you the same, can you be objective?

About yourself of course, or would you want to be?

Are you self obsessed, like me?

If so, why would anyone want to know?

Am I a show off ever showing?

Am I a person worth knowing?

Is your opinion of yourself widely shared, I might ask myself the same if I cared.

Is your self esteem high or low?

I sincerely want to know.

About myself I don’t give a damn.

I think therefore I am.

That’s second hand, so what?

That’s your lot.

Theory

In theory I am a genius but in practice no.

I have a long way to go.

I am an apprentice millionaire, just starting out.

When I find out how I’ll give you a shout.

I am the world’s greatest lover, I have some practice in that sphere.

I just say to a girl, come here.

Theory means nothing if not put into practice, learn that first.

Then do your thing, shut up, or else you’re cursed.

Dream while you’re asleep, not all day.

That’s more or less all I have to say.

Mere words are a waste of time.

Is this a poem or a rhyme?

Don’t live only in theory, don’t you see.

Leave that to me.

Last Option

Now at last I do or die.

Or at least try.

I cannot pay one who knows, I can’t afford new clothes.

No money, don’t you understand?

I don’t, things are not grand.

I myself must find out how, that’s the best way.

I may ring one last friend, today.

Writing this is postponement, I must make atonement.

For what I am not sure, maybe a lazy mind.

I am not the thinking kind.

Some things come easily to me.

Not everything, you see.

My best friend believed in me.

So I will try, and hopefully achieve.

I must myself believe.

Others have done it, so can I.

I tell myself that is no lie.

It will happen if I try.

I have no other choice, its up to me.

I will do it, wait and see.
