One For All
Why should it be one for all
Some stand tall
Some will fall
But that doesn’t mean that they can’t stand tall
Because exams are not for all
Some people will think their finished
Because their confidence is diminished
For others the exam is their friend
But the real world will bring that to an end
The system really needs to change
But the people who made it are just too afraid.
It’s Alright Not to Feel Okay
Life is great.
Life is the most valuable thing we possess.
But, it’s not always a stroll in the park.
Life can often be dull and dark.
When people feel down they think it’s the end of the world. But, that’s not always the case.
People can feel down for many reasons:
the loss of a loved one, illness, failing an exam, not performing well in sport.
But, what we have to remember is that for every sad moment there is a happy one.
Put it this way even the sun sets in paradise, but even though it sets, it has to rise again.
It’s perfectly normal to feel down
Even the most successful people on this planet feel down.
Sometimes you are not going to succeed
But always remember:
Failure is only temporary but success is permanent.
In a World
In a world where almost everything ever known can be found online
In a world where one of the biggest job vacancies is in new technology
In a world where things are changing faster than ever
In a world where more and more kids are lashing out against the system
Why are schools trying to reduce the web to a few government-made sites?
Why are schools giving only a tiny amount of effort to teaching kids about technology?
Why are schools holding on to the old and rejecting the new?
Why are schools choking with tighter rules instead of seeing their point of view?
And helping to grow on what they can do?
I struggled through all the pain
As I struggled to find any gain
Every morning every night
I tried to make it right
Every trip every fall
I tried to conquer them all
I used to slip and slide
As I struggled to even glide
When I got my act together
All the struggles seemed like a feather
Floating out of my memory
As I marched on cleverly
Maybe life will make me struggle
But I will go on without a trouble.
Why worry about something you can’t change?
A world without worry is something I wish I could arrange
If you can’t do anything about it, then don’t be worried
Into the ground, your ‘worries’ should be buried.
But when there’s something that can be done
Then, what are you waiting for
Because fixing your problem’s can often be fun
And it might just open a door.
Really though, why worry about not making that bend?
Because f*** it sure, it’ll all be grand in the end.
Lorry pulls up beside me on the road
He opens the door
It’s a friend I’ve never seen before
Says he’s furniture to unload
Where you going says I
Just to the path over
But that’s the middle of nowhere
I looked at him with a cautious eye
Stranger danger went through my mind
Turned around and looked behind
No one around to be at my side
So run away and hide.
As I walk to the ropes I take a deep breath
The whole world vanishes its just me and myself
I was told once the only person I have to battle is myself
The pressure of life just all disappears
While I am here the boys are drinking beers
But this is my life and it’s the way I want to live it.
If teenagers can’t be different how can they express themselves?
If you can’t be yourself you’re nobody.
Personally I think this world is a giant mess.
Being different is the key to happiness
Everybody can’t be that perfect figure or the best.
I believe being yourself is the key to happiness
You don’t have to put up a wall to hide your personal happiness from others.
To finish my expression of anger I’m just going to say
People are Drinking
People are drinking, I am thinking
They’ll be backstage drinking until they disengage
Drink until they reach the brink.
Just do some wishful thinking instead of drinking.
They’ll be snapchatting while I’m here back chatting.
Wondering why, why I don’t fit in
And all my emotions handwritten.
They are on a steep hill, even though I’m one of these people.
