The Pointlessness Of Success

A post about my view of success and how it isn’t a good motivator.

Painting: Solitary Confinement

Using black paint, water, a thin paintbrush and a sponge on a stick my latest painting was created to represent the feeling of loneliness. This was inspired by the song Solitary Confinement by The Members. It looks a little bit like a theatre curtain as any emotion comes in life but what is life other […]

The Horse Racing Issue

I keep seeing posts about banning horse racingon Facebook. The horses can get injured. Once they lose their value they can get killed. All very bad and understandably upsets people. In football people sometimes hit each other with a ball, they sometimes get injured, they sometimes never play again and can’t do what they love. […]

Head-butting The Wall

“Do you hate me?” “Of course I don’t hate you, to hate you I’d first have to have some love for you. After all love and hate are two sides of the same coin.” “So what do you feel?” “Rage. You can be a problem but you can also be the most amazing person I’ve […]

Ambition

Always have hope. Push yourself as far as you can go and things may improve for you. Believe in your dreams and all the rest of it. I’ve presented this one of my longer poems slightly differently to normal and some of the lines didn’t remain on one line but hopefully it looks nice and […]

Are There Too Many Questions?

What is truth? What are lies? Do I have youth? Or am I old but in disguise? Do you like my personality? Do you think it’s a façade? What is normality? Is judging it really that hard? Is anything real? What about demons and gods? Why do we feel? Can we win against the odds? […]

Only Ashes Remain

Before I start I’ll leave a link to The Fire which this sort of continues on from. There are no flames, No passion, I’m done with silly games, In my mind I ration My thoughts and my time, I sometimes wonder Whether I should turn to crime, All my hopes have gone asunder, In this […]
