Love will tear your heart out of your chest
It will drain you of every thing you got
It’s the monster you can not help
But summon its intense feeling
Pain deep down in your soul
You try to ignore it
But will always be there
Eating away at you
It’s a disease
You must live with
There is and will never be a cure.
I am feeling all alone
With no one on the phone
My Mam is just around the corner
I wish I could see more of her.
Soon I’ll be back to normal
Just till the end of summer
It started of rough
But its getting better
This poem’s for her
A little love letter.
Things I say
And things I do
They may not be good
Tut the thing
Not everything is right.
I get bullied everyday nearly
But I’m strong I keep
Going until the end
Never give up.
When I go home everyday
There’s always something wrong
You feel very lonely but I have
Friends and family by my side.
But be happy because
Life is too short.
School is hell on heaven,
It is homework on the weekend,
It is bad weather on a Saturday,
But it is the start of many friendships,
And it is the end of childhood.
I was just 12-years-old when my friend offered me
She offered me a ticket a ticket to The Script.
It was it Dublin in Croke Park
The lights were bright
Brighter than my future.
When he started to sing
He sang about his dad
His dad who he had just lost.
He was quite emotional
He started to cry
He keep on singing trying to be strong.
Strong, strong, very strong.
In the night the stars shine so bright.
They guide you around the sky like a flashlight.
During the night meteorites fall from the heavens.
And the moonlight glistens
You can look at the Space Station satellite.
And that’s what happens at night.
Pretty Little Liars
Full of dark secrets
With no escape
‘A’ is always there
With it’s stalking cape.
‘A’ has many forms
Also known as ‘Red Coat’
Be careful what you say
‘A’ will save your quote.
I have been through a lot
From ups and downs
I have kept my head
Held up high
And soldiered on
I always try
I never stop
I must not let
My young head drop.
I used to blame myself
For the decisions of my family
But now I don’t
I used my strengths to find stuff out
Stuff that changed my life
Changed my opinion of people
People I knew, people I loved
I thought confronting them was right
But I was wrong
I learnt that the hard way
But I kept my head held high
I’m glad I did
I’m happy now
Sitting home learning everyday
Doing homework for the next day
Being sad that I’ve grown up
Wishing to be small in a carefree world.
I want to be home
To see my grandparents
To see my friends,
But I can’t.
Here in school everything is fine
Outside the school everything is dark
My parents are trying to help me
But they can’t.
It was perfect before my dad came here
Then everything got ruined
I can remember talking with him the night before
I can remember crying after him when he came here.
I want to be in my country
Next to the people I love
But my parents say it’s better here
But it isn’t.
People say that my music is disturbing
While they would be listening to stuff about booty and money.
They would say that the lyrics are evil
Even though it is about the evil of media.
They would complain that it is just some noise
While they would listen to dubstep.
They would say who makes it are violent psychos
While their favourite artists go into prison for shootings.
The teachers judge me on the scores of my exams
When my parents tell me how are you doing
I lie and say I’m grand
But the fear inside of disappointing my family because they told me
You’re the smart one you got the most attention
But its bloody hard to keep myself out of detention.
Cats and Dogs
Cats are cool
So are dogs
They are funny
And are bony.
If you kill my dog
Or my cat
I will pull your hair out
and flush you down my toilet.
I like to play
With my cats and dogs
I hug them
And I kiss them.
If you come close to them
I’ll take your eyeballs out
With my spoon
I will also put you in a blender.
Love will strangle you
Rip out your hair
It will make you jealous
Make you want to fight.
Love is a fight
Love is a monster
It will eat you.
What Life’s Like For Me Everyday
We live young and free
Wake up every morning thinking life’s not a dream
Teenager dreams is living young wild and free
No one likes to be told so we all just be bold
Hanging around town with all these clowns
Nothing to say nothing to see
Just thinking about when we were young and free
Teenager years is a life full of dreams
Thinking about now we were young and free.
A Car Is…
A car is
If it can ride you nearby or far.
A car is
When it gets you in time to the bar
A car is
When you are addressed as Madam or Sir
But for some
A car is not just a car
It is a man’s bae
After a daylight roam
It is a home
After a nightly diff
Kind of like a homelessness
Now give me any twincam
I’ll give it epic burn outs
Play sweet tunes to it by scooter
By the time you watch me stand by it
And pose with a new huge exhaust
Waiting to take you out to the lads
You may even prefer it to be a Ferrari.
You see, to me
Be it in a new coat of matte black and green paint
Or one decorated with tarnished scars
The simple reality
Is they all have similar
Whether be it a personalized twincam with an exploding roaring engine.
A car is a car
A vehicle of motion
A medium of transportation
Even when it shows signs of erosion
As long as it can move from junction to junction
I personally sanction
A car is just a car.
This bully he teases He I do not like it much
He taunts and teases good thing he doesn’t touch
That is next he says
So all I do is stick up my thumb
I think a bigger kid I might come along.
And when I arrive home this bully moves online
Snapchats and Facebooks about how his fist will soon be mine.
The next day I try to ignore him
But then I’m shown the door I try to hold it in I really really do
But I can’t take much more of putting up with you.
I’m quite afraid of death,
My death isn’t what scares me
It’s my loved one’s that I fear
Closer to it every year
The pain I don’t want to feel
My loved one in a coffin
Me praying while I kneel.
Leave me in my sadness
While my heart is corrupted by badness
Surrounded by darkness
I can feel the sharpness.
Death. Controls. Me.
Gerard O’ Donovan
Summer time silage grass on
Flat out cutting grass in my T6070
New Holland with a 18-foot smith silage trailer
With a big load in it then one of the lad
Hopped up on the tractor
And now we are sucking diesel
On 50 euro an day.
We are getting ready to row
The cox yells flags up all boats ready
We rowed as fast as we could
We are racing along the river
Then we pass the galley it is now feeling like a rally
We are coming up to the turn my arms are now starting to burn
We are rowing against the tide
It is now feeling like a roller coaster ride
Then it comes to the turn the cox yells
We are now on the way back
We are all tired and start to slack
But we are so close to the finish line
We finish first so I gave a burst with joy.
I play video games to get away from the real game called life
I do this to hide my real self
For I fear of being judged in the real game.
Matey & Brandon
He walks into the room at nine in the morning
He looks like he’s got a poker face on but it’s a game face
He’s doing his best to survive the day
He wonders why school doesn’t pay
What he does must be harder than a bad day at work
He goes through this almost 5 times a week
He’s got a few friends but for some reason
It doesn’t help versus the people against him
When he gets home every day,
He rips off the mask he wears and breaks down
He can’t help it
There’s something about how insignificant his problem is on the outside
Compared to how he feels on the inside.
He moved to a new school, he was scared about it
Compared to his previous experience
His theory is that it could never get better
But about a month later, a new guy moves in
He was in a different class but they moved him for some reason
This new guy and our “here” shall we call him,
They make friends and it’s like
They’re different from being friends.
Here in this world
A world of exams and studyings
It makes me sick
But I was told to get a good job.
When these days are all over
I need to provide and not be on the streets
To help the others in need to be a good person and make a living of myself,
I could be an athlete but to be honest I can’t be arsed.
Music makes me happy
Music makes me sad
I love pop, classical and especially rad.
I have a lot of favourites
Who mean a lot to me
But the music that I love the most is love symphony.
I will travel around the country but will all pay off
Will they win the league this year, or can they take the cup/
Will Dundalk rival us once again?
Will they pull away?
We will go up the country we will stay at home
And they will have the support of the garden gnome!
Everyday we have to wake up and go to jail
Stuck in classrooms all day
Learning about stuff we’re never gonna use
Spending hours upon hours memorizing books
Just to get an A that you’re never gonna use
The only reason I’m motivated to go school is to see my friends
You’re never gonna need to know what people did thousands of years ago
Or how to draw a Venn diagram
Teachers give out to you even though you’ve done nothing wrong
And they confront you about your exam results in front of the whole class.
Oscar Atkinson & Kevin O’Regan
You wake up every day already in pain
You spend every waking regretting the day
You made one fatal mistake
It doesn’t matter how big it can be the end of you
One slip-up and its over
Forever laughed at and exiled
Everyone ignores your existence
The one person who opens up to you backstabs you and reopens then wound
The second everyone turns their back on you you start the long journey
When you’re finally finished
We want to stop bullying
No one should be a bully
No one should be bullying
We don’t want to bully at St. Brogan’s College
We don’t want to see bullying
It might be funny for some people
But its sad as well for other people.
I Hate Poems
Poems I hate them so much
I hate the timing of the rhyming
I hate the words you have to use
Why are poems still being written?
They are old news
Oooooooooooh get rekt m8!
I have no idea what to write for this poem,
Well I have just learned that a word that rhymes with poem is jeroboam,
Jeroboam:noun:a large wine bottle (holds 4/5 of a gallon),
It is a better start than a talon,
Right what is next on the list,
Maybe something that has hissed,
I think that snakes could be a dull topic,
Just like anything telescopic,
Now it may be time to end,
Hopefully there has been no offend,
This poem may not be good enough,
But this is my last huff.
Friendship is a priceless gift
That can’t be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold.
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It cannot see nor hear,
And in your times of trouble,
It is powerless to cheer.
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand.
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand.
So when you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful that he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches,
But the love of a real, true friend.
The Clash of The Ash
The crowd roared, The sky rumbled.
We looked at the sky as we ran out
Dreaming to win, to lift the cup.
We played with our heart and not our heads
We played to the end
Until our ash clashed.
Playing GAA for my club and county would be my dream
Picking up the ball and kicking it over the bar hearing the crowd scream
Although now I am not the best but if I practice I will be
Days running and picking up the ball round the old oak tree
For every thousand touches I will get good
Hammering in goals for Cork and Newcestown
Lifting the All-Ireland for club and county would be my dream.
Soccer is when you step on to the pitch
With the crowd cheering your name
Soccer is trying to play your best
No worries if you lose its just a game
Soccer is playing with a ball at your feet
Are you ready to get beat?
Soccer is not just a game
Summer is cool
Until it rains
My passion will be to go outside
My PS3 will get a break
Eager to get sunshine
Run until I sweat.
Don’t ever kick a crocodile
because I’m pretty sure she
may do something
even worse to you.
When I was younger I wanted to be older
But 2 years ago I broke a bone in my shoulder
The doctor said ill be fine in 2 weeks
But 2 weeks later my shoulder was back to being weak
I was upset I didn’t know what to do
I guess its a good thing I support Liverpool
We were so close to wining the Europa League
But Sevilla just had a better team
Soccer is the sport you play the most
the sport you enjoy the most
where you get the momentum to score the goal
and score the goal to finish the game
that is why soccer’s the best game.
