SNAP! - Ep. 07
Snap! Playing on words to relate to how my mind works and my personality, and the universe/ world we all lived in. How we see life and how we live our lives through the deception of the noise we are surrounded, how we are distracted by it all, forgetting our true selves in the process. Forgetting how truly wonderful this life and world is as human-beings. Being caught up in all the yahoo and forgetting our humanity, forgetting to love equally, and not hate equally. We all belong, not one of us is better than the other we are created equally, the world, society, the system created this animosity we feel towards each other, not life. Life is wonderful and beautiful and it encompasses every living creature, including us, on the this wonderful planet of OURS and the universe and beyond. Lets live life equally, love equally my fellow humans, including every living entity it holds and support. Thank you.

REALITY - Ep. 06
Hi everyone, This poem was and is about the struggles we all have in life and how we deal with them mentally, spiritually and physically. I wrote this when i was in a dark place, feeling nothing but disappear and trapped, in the sense that I couldn't see a way out. I for me, the only way I could and can deal with these moments in life is my artwork, whether with my paintings, designs etc. For me the only way i dealt with this dark cloud hanging over my head was with words. If you've followed my podcast you would realised i wrote a lot of poetry during the timelines of the early 2000's, just dealing with my issues. These words reflect exactly how I was feeling at the time, and I got through that period through the aid of my creative outlets, I never had anyone to talk that I truly trusted, sadly. so if anyone you know or if you are going through a lot, if you cannot speak to someone, use a form of creative outlet, you don't have to be a fantastic artist or anything just do something that releases that pressure. And those who might know someone who doesn't seem at ease, talk to them, be that person who listens without judgement or contempt, be the person who you wold like to be there for you in any situation. Thank you for listening and be the love that you deserve for yourself and others, peace.

I Love You Still - Ep. 05
Hi everyone, this poem is, as it says in the title, about loving, loving another person, finding room to fix this person into your life and sometimes it just doesn't fit and it falls apart, over simple things as well as major things also, but in this case its about the argument that went too far and the consequences of that, the disagreements. then after the dust settles, so to speak, you both realise and think, was it worth it in the end, all that aggravation and stress. And how we move on from that place of discontent, and sometimes the best way is to listen to each others heart, what you felt for the person, how you both came to be together and love each other. Great poem that speaks volumes of the human heart and emotions and how we process all of the above combined, and what the conclusion is to all that information we have stored up. Most of the time we get it wrong, but again if we can just listen to how we truly feel, deep inside our souls etc the answers are there. The painting reflects love, in the sense of being so open with our emotions, and the heart represents this emotion, it's a form of vulnerability, being in love with another being and expressing this emotion. Thanks for listening and reading, hope you enjoyed.

The Matt - Ep. 04
I wrote this poem while doing my laundry in my local laundry mat, thinking about life and how i can compare life to doing the laundry/ reflecting life. How life can sometimes feel so pointless after all the hard work you've put in yet nothing seem to work out. And after all the trials and tribulations and just before you say "that's it I'm done" something inside says, hey there is always tomorrow, time to face the day, a new day life is for living and it will get better. The artwork is a painting of wonderful vibrant colours in the foreground, reflecting the beauty of life although it can be rough (this is reflected from the dark shadowy background) at times and can and is wonderfully beautiful also. Through the darkness and the artificial reflections of what we expect life to be, comes the light of enlightenment if you like, of what life truly is.

A Warm Feeling - Ep. 02
This poem is about love and loving ones self, how we as human beings perceive love and as time passes by how we reflect on what love truly is; Love for oneself and love for others outside ourselves, and where true love really lives.

Time - Ep. 03
Time is a poem about...Time, or rather how we spend our time in the overall wholesome sense. This was written for a friend of mine as a wedding gift, just to remind the happy couple of how our/ their time was and is and will be spent; the precious moments, changing moments, rewarding moments and the ones that are spent in ecstasy, ecstasy of love, joy, fun! And the time we spend in sorrow and pain, and the time we'll take to get over lost and how it was all necessary in other to grow, in order to overcome and move on to other things in life. All we have is time and it seems it is never enough, although it is all we have, which is spent well by all, regardless of what we do with it, it was and is all necessary.
