The Loneliness of the Times
The loneliness of the times,
Cannot be written through lines or rhymes
Formatted cleanly in a verse,
With bodies in excess,
Of the capacity of the hursts
That form traffic in the street,
Families of the dead unable to meet;
Their belovedly devoted,
Buried by covid
Secondary School as a teenager its the best years of your life
Where in actual fact it’s where your personality comes to die
Art and drawing, music and singing, it all just has to go
For here you must cool or weird is how you will be known
Take down all the posters, burn all of the books
And head down to the boxing club and practice those right hooks
For people only want to see these boys all tough and brawn
That’s what a person just might think but they really don’t care at all
So do not think for one damn second that being cool is worth
Throwing years of skill practice back into the earth
What is Life?
Sometimes you have to cut it open with a knife
Success, fame, getting the hammer of Thor
Have you ever wondered what’s it all for
At the end of the day, we’re all gonna die
So just ask yourself why?
It’s all a waste of time
Money, Success, Titles and Crime
Life, it’s a big mystery
No one could figure it out if even if you went back in history
Should we give up, let it aside
Or should we put in our blood, sweat and tears while we kiss the bride
All this for nothing
Or maybe, it goes towards something
What is life?
I felt a different way every time I text her
With two different options I thought that I could best them
Picked her friend instead I should’ve done a tester
Regrets in my head when I move onto the next one
Regrets in my heart when we sat on that tree and I heard her voice
Six months later I still regret my choice
And I know it’ll kill me to see her with another boy
Nine to Five
The endless nine to five.
The lie that we have been told from youth,
That this is the life that will bear all the fruit,
That may say that the odds of great success are one in a million
And this endless cycle has no escape,
If Elon Musk had the same mind-set,
He’d still be attracted to the same magnetic tape,
Associated with this great lie,
That freedom from the age of sixty-five,
Is worth working for, for all of our lives.
Have you ever seen a star shining so bright
You forgot all the other night skies
It learned to shine brighter than the others
Learned to illuminate the blue sky
Proving that nature is unpredictable
Yet so beautiful
I reminisce about the star that shone so brightly that night
When no one else ever recalled it.
This is the day the passion calls,
From bloodied shorts to pumped up balls,
Distant shouts drive the engine,
Metal-studded boots stand to attention,
Thousands of hours training together,
All for a chance to prove who is better,
A blow of the whistle, up goes the ball,
The pride of the parish comes above all.
I learned a lot in this past year,
That it is hard to choose your career.
It’s hard to communicate,
But I know it’s not too late.
To achieve in anything and become great.
Golf and snooker are the sports I love,
And I can help dreaming of,
Being great at something
Or it will never end up happening,
But I know it’s always possible,
To become efficient and very capable.
To achieve my dream and goal.
A Pinch of Salt
COVID 19 is very bad
And kills lots of people being made in a lab
It’s mostly their fault
Take everything said with a pinch of salt
Cause people spread lies
And the media is false
Rumours are believed and rumours are taught
Gen z is destined the worst generation
Electing the people to ruin a nation
I come from a land filled with turmoil
A land with violence and savagery
And war and peace
And right and wrong
I come from a land where man turns against each other
A land where everyone has a different opinion
A land where no one gets along
And where everyone hates one another
Why can’t we live in a world where there is no savagery and violence
And chaos and war and corruption
Why can’t we live in a place where everyone loves each other
And there is no fighting and inequality
Where everyone is fair and kind and strong hearted
Why can’t we change the world?
Covid 19 has been mentally depressing,
But all we can do is start progressing,
Help out others if they are in need,
Everyone should be able to feed,
Life can be shit but we must stay strong,
We need to be kind and admit that were wrong,
Two long months we have to await,
Until this is all hopefully over and we get to celebrate.
Locked in by the bars of my house
How I miss the car rides to the club house.
Sat behind a screen being given work deadlines
Sick of reading dead tolls in news headlines.
Lots more late night gaming sessions
Future champs losses giving me maniac depression.
It’s going to war
Fighting From the core
Rising up to catch the ball
Makes you feel 10 foot tall
Long cold winter nights
Will pay off in the bright lights
In the gym building muscle
It’s all about the hustle
Long sessions drive you round the bend
You know it will be all worth it in the end
We are in the third lockdown this year,
Covid got people turning to beer,
Up at 9 o’clock every morning,
Same stuff different day it’s boring,
All you hear about is Covid-19,
At least now we have vaccine,
Everything is closed, we’re in isolation,
Covid gave the economy constipation,
Can’t even go meet a friend,
When will covid come to an end.
Age 16, age of opportunity,
Age of freedom, age of unity,
No one expected a change of scene,
Yet no one goes out and no one is seen.
I wanted a job I wanted money,
I wanted a girl I wanted a honey,
Age of 16 so much to do,
But why is god being so cruel.
It’s soaking wet in the thundering rain
But it won’t be as bad as the pain
If we lose this final we worked so hard for
All we is just one more score
The ball comes low, fast and quick
I give my defender a quick nick
We no hesitation I think to shoot
And just like that the ball flies off of my boot
Why Are You? Why Aren’t You?
Why aren’t you 6’0? Why Aren’t you funny?
Why aren’t you rich? Why have you no money?
Why aren’t you big? Why aren’t you strong?
Why aren’t you any of the things I’ve mentioned at all?
In the middle of a pandemic, with no fun to be had,
No nights out, and no craic with the lads,
When I see the inside of a party or club again in my life,
Why are you, why aren’t you will be nothing I’ll hear from a future wife.
The Gloss is Gone
The gloss is gone
What an earth is going on
They say stay in
They say the bother we’re in
As I try to stay sane
I wait patiently for the chains
To be ripped from my brain
Life of Lockdown
12 months ago we heard about a virus
Then we were told how we will be getting 2 months off school
Everyone filled up with glee
12 months later, 3 lockdowns later
We are still in the same situation
We were in this day a year ago
What a two weeks this has been
We’re being told video games are useless
So why study things that don’t bring us careers
Why play sports if we don’t go pro
Why do we waste time gallivanting with our peers
Why listen to people who only know one way
Can we not be trusted to bring our own success
We are different, let us learn differently
Walk into the home gym, each day with a new reason,
When you’re happy, sad, angry this work carry on each season,
When you walk in, no one judging, just you v you,
At the beginning, skinny with a 60lbs max squat,
Then you’re there, a year later lifting 180 with no need for a spot,
You look at yourself, all lean in that mirror,
Your dream physique, with each rep edging nearer,
I personally am still at the beginning,
But I can see myself putting in the work and seeing myself winning.
Schools don’t teach us about life
But At least they showed us how to read and write
If they taught us more about the real world
We won’t end up all hurled
Jobs and school are very different
If they taught us that it would be magnificent
Learning more about the real world is important
Schools should make this a priority
Traipsing into school the bitter winter air hits your face as you step off the bus
Wishing you were anywhere but here into a damp cold classroom
To listen to a teacher that doesn’t want to be there either
Get to break, time soggy sandwiches for lunch
Everyone half-asleep, we then drag ourselves into our next class
For another lecture we couldn’t care about
Finally, we get to go home
Everyone finally fully awake and happy
On a Summer Day
On a summer day in June
We headed on a bus to Longford for a disco
I arrived in Longford that looked like San Francisco
It then got dark in a massive park around 2,000 teenagers there
Most of them looked like ragers!
Fights to my left and right
Thinking I’m gonna get hit
Which would be such a fright
Nothing annoys me more than Lazio fans,
Screaming Immobile’s name from the stands.
Actually thinking they are the best,
Wants me to get a few words off my chest.
Forever in Roma’s shadow
And more irrelevant than a mikado
I really shouldn’t be getting mad,
At a team this bad.
I make bread like I’m a bakery
Call me Wu Pao-chun
I make rhymes like Da Vinci just for fun
My rhymes are sweet yours are unsavoury
I might just go and by a house in Colorado Springs
My muscles big look like chicken wings
If I had feathers i might just fly
Im pretty basic call me alkali
Your bread is so disgusting it looks doctored
Know so much about English I’m like Oxford
Yet I bake like I’m Taiwanese
Not drugs, I’m addicted to blue cheese
Covid 19 is here
But farming still continues
Turf being brought home
But there’s still a lot to go
Cows having to be fed
And then it’s off to bed
But life still goes on
Tomorrow at the crack of dawn
Life of a teenager in lockdown
I hate it so much everything about it with nothing to do all day
I am so bored and don’t know what to do with myself
All day I want to be out meeting my friends
And going to party and playing football but I can’t because if corona.
It’s gone on for so long now and I feel like my teenage years are getting wasted
When I could be out having fun and experience new things
Without this Pandemic
I just want to play Gaelic without Covid
I hate how going outside is like going into a big infectious bubble.
I hate thinking about what could have been without this pandemic.
My County’s Curse
I love Mayo
But it’s quite flawed though
We never win
even if I pray we through
But it’s okay players come and go
Including our few retirees of old
David and Chris ye did alright
But it’s time to give the youngsters some light.
What to Do
Lockdown number three
Stuck with family
Workmen can’t even tighten a screw.
All because of some fool.
Grandparents missing mass
Can’t even play a bit of football on the grass.
My aim in life is to play games for life,
And maybe even get a wife.
I’m gunna get enough money,
To provide for my honey.
My kids will be cool,
They will do good in school.
All My Mates
My best night
We slept in a tent
But it could of been pent
Surprised we survived another breath
Woke up in a state
With all my mates
Living Life in Dubai
Living the high life in Dubai
Butterfly doors from the lambo pointing high
Ice on my wrists
I don’t think I missed
IPhone 12 in my pocket
Along with the locket
Pc on my desk
Chains around my neck
Views from my apartment
Guess it’s the opposite of what Eminem said
Because my window doesn’t cause me pain
I hate when my teammates give up
They need a check up
It makes me want to throw up
When my teammates don’t show up
They just need to grow up
I’m from mayo
We’re in lockdown
All the places are shut down
No where to go
With all the lads
A game of football
We like to play hard
One little push calls the referee
The crowd goes mad
The referee has a temper
Out comes the flashing bright red card
I live in the countryside where everyone is so tight
The pandemic just isn’t right
I feel like we just aren’t as bright
We just don’t got no fight
This virus is reminding me of the potato blight
I think its time to say goodnight.
I love pizza
I like it’s sticky cheese
I like it’s tangy sauce
But I hate when it goes cold
It drills a hole in my heart
The cheese goes hard
The sauce goes sour
I could eat pizza for an hour
I could even eat it in the shower
I like when it’s sprinkled in flour
When I eat it I get lots of power.
I love the way the tractor puts
The way the cow’s moo
The way the sheep scream on a summer’s day
The cleaning of the sheds to the cows calving
From the sheep lambing
To the bottle feeding the sheep
Covid is bad
Covid makes me sad
Covid is bad
It makes me sad
I hate depression.
I hate how I get angry at the smallest things.
I hate my mood-swings.
I hate how tired I get from constantly pretending everything’s okay.
I hate being devoured by sorrow.
I hate breaking down every other week.
I hate the sleepless nights.
I hate the causes of my depression.
I hate trying to be happy.
I hate dreaming of brighter days.
I hate the paranoia, the anxiety and the worry.
I hate being distant from everyone.
I hate it.
