Live life the way you like
Today people ask me ’How’s school going?’
It’s never ‘How are you?’ it’s unknowing
People laugh and cry about an exam
But in the end it doesn’t matter a damn
We are all going to die anyway.
So live everyday like it’s your last day
Don’t turn out like any Tom, Dick or Harry
Be successful and as happy as Larry.
The Real World
School limits our expectations
Troublemakers land at a Garda stations.
Kicked out of school for being a bollocks
But all he wants to do is herd bullocks.
This is his life, this is his education
Not maths or English with personification.
Be it you’re a banker or hauling anchors
School doesn’t teach you the things you need in life
Such as defending yourself against a knife.
Mathematics or science sure there important but it’s not all about exams
Where are they when you are in real life scams
Running, jumping, thinking or hunting
Surviving, driving even scuba diving.
This is a bit twirled
But this is what I think is the real world
Still here, but disappear
I must do me
Taking hits, hypocrites!
Keep fighting, uniting
Hearing no sound
Doubting, but certain
I must do me.
The Road Not Taken
I’m not creative
I hate school
I don’t play sports
I listen to music all day
I’m always laughing
We Are Human
Parents are always going on about exams
They say lots of things like
YOU SHOULD BE STUDYING or
NO TV FOR THE WEEK
They think that we have no lives
That we should spend every night locked in our rooms studying.
I think it’s time that parents realise that we need a break too
We aren’t robots
We are just like them
WE ARE HUMAN.
Welcome to Ireland, The home of fat wankers,
The TD’S, the lords, the country’s fat bankers.
Look at our country; it’s becoming a mess,
You have to look at it and also confess,
This newest generation, is totally f**ked,
I see young teenagers with drink fags and drugs.
Your mates come and ask you, fancy a drink?
I’m fifteen for god’s sake but when I say no they think,
That I’m strange and different, “everyone does it”
And the fact is most do, but that is the problem.
Your average working man is breaking his balls,
Making enough to get by, but struggling to buy his daughter fancy dolls.
When he gets his weeks wages the tax man lands in,
“Haven’t seen you in ages, where’s my money Ben”
Hands over his 41%
Now left with not enough money, what about the rent?
They say homelessness is a crisis,
But where does 41% go?
Wasted on things we don’t need, things we should let go.
It’s time we changed, Enda pull your finger out!!
I know it in my mind, without a doubt,
We’re Irish for god’s sake; it’s time to stand up,
‘The land of the strong, the brave and the rough’,
I know times are hard, I know times are tough,
But come on now Ireland. Don’t give up!
Last Night Out
Everybody goes drinking these days
Even knowing it will put them in a haze
Everyone asks “You going out tonight”
But really they don’t give a shite
Doing stupid sh*t, like driving after
All of them in a pit of laughter
Then can’t see through the windscreen, because of condensation
Ending up again, in a Garda station
And that’s if their lucky, and if you doubt
For some people it’s their last night out!
I got nothing in my head I do not know what the f**k I want to do with my life I have got a lot pressure on my mind. My mind’s weak. I keep nearly given in my mom’s helping me she wants the best for me. I got loads of people hoping I’ll do well. I just gotta say I’m one mother f**ker for being lazy. I do not know what to do it’s a lot of pressure for all us teenagers trying to figure out what the f**k we want. I feel the pressure down on me with everybody watchin’. I need the help. I don’t know what I want.
What Is Life?
My life is a bit of a puddle all jumbled up
This part over there and the other part is like sup
This is wrong when people think life is cool
I’m not too cool for school
So I am out of tune
I ask myself, what is this life about
Basically, it is a whole load of crap!
My life is a mystery, some may say a surprise at times
But, you may say life is led by a whole tangle of lines
As you may say it, we are puppets
While kids like The Muppets.
As I grow older, I understand the mystery of life
Life can be as simple as live, breed and die but this is not life
This is not a melody, this is not a harmony
Life should be fun, you should be alive in this symphony
Life is life.
I have been down, my friends have been down
This is not known
You should do right, reach out a hand
Or else life can be bland.
But once you help, it is all that matters
Your neighbour, your friend, anyone can be sad
This is very bad
Do right and you will be right!
I Am Me
I don’t like school
I don’t like people
I don’t like exams
I don’t like anything that involves education or effort
My parents say I’m lazy
My friends think I’m boring
But they have no idea who I truly am
I am creative
I am imaginative
I am strong
I am caring
I am loving
But most of all I am me.
My Interest in Veterinary
For my whole life I was interested in helping,
Helping the things that have hair and wagging tails,
Beings that will dirty the door in fear,
These beings are animals.
Animals that need to be as they say ‘fixed’,
Or animals in dire need,
Animals that look at humans like their slaves,
And animals that look at humans for pleasure,
We could say that animals use us.
Animals that come in could be too fat or too thin,
Animals that just in for no reason at all.
There are animals that hate vets,
Animals that like vets,
Animals that would try to attack the vet,
And animals that would try their best to be content.
Some animals are in for no reason,
Some animals are in ‘cos the owners worry too much,
Animals can be filthy and smelly,
While some can be clean and washed.
I watched surgeries,
They were very interesting,
And it was nice to see money coming in from them!
Sure that is what the owners have to sacrifice,
Which overall makes me, as a future vet, very happy.
I Really Like Driving
I really like driving, especially driving fast.
Some people say it’s dangerous, but it’s really not!
It helps me de-stress, that’s what they don’t know,
That if I didn’t go driving, fast, I won’t be such blast.
I really like cars too.
They are really interesting, and quads too.
My favourite thing in the car is the handbrake, so when I’m pulling skids, if you’re in the car when I’m driving fast, please don’t pull any skids in your pants for it wouldn’t be any bants.
This is how I get control of my emotion and blow off some steam, so if you don’t like it don’t make me bust a cap in your ass.
