Today

 

My past is in no way tragic

.

.

I won’t labour tomorrow by embellishing one bad time,

or two,

or three...

So my story is more attractive...

 

Like the ones that make T.V winners shine for their 5 moments!

 

Their stories are just BURSTING with tragedy!

 

and their winners?!

.

.

 

I’d much rather sculpt my existence to be a series of events that led to today…

 

because dignity.

My hats

 

I have many hats

 

for approximately 73 days I’m wearing my mother hat…

 

and hung somewhere in an intangible place in the future is my best friend hat...

my London commuter hat, photographer painter and big important art maker hat…

 

I know there are hats I need ,within my reach that I must find ……

the comfortable nap,

light UN-interrupted snack hat ,

alone in the bath with no toys hat….

 

But I’m in my mother hat ...Days go by go weeks go months... it feels even heavier,

or like I don’t wear it well, not like the other mothers in their mother hats

feels like it’s on even when it’s off , ( it’s never off...you can’t take it of Rah)

and I'm sure it’s getting bigger & bigger & bigger,

Can you even see me in my mother hat? ….

 

Of cores you can. It’s fucking massive and also truly remarkable.

If

 

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;

If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster.....

.

I'm sorry I can't do this. This is a poem by Rudyard Kipling called titled "If" I shouldn't steal it. Plagiarism is not the cure for lack of inspiration.

"Life is what you make it!""

Right now it's a load of balls...

I let them out to roll about,

And bang some on the walls.

Wonderfull advice from really great people .

 

Cant sleep you say?!

Put down your phone they say!

Stop screen time at 6pm he suggests

Stop eating caffeine he informs

Enjoy more exercise they recommend

Guided meditation she whispers...

Where's your advice now eh?!

At 3am!

Eh?

Clap clap clap clap clap clap clap

 

I don't like clapping

It hurts my hands

That notion of clapping is so absurd ...

I mean you literally hit your hands together...

I wouldn't clap my face, my head or you... Its violent.

It's also hard to do in time with songs.

I'm not clapping anymore.

Itchy feet

.

I've been on edge of late,

World chucking about hate

terrible things here,

worse over there

I ...can't.....stand....... it............ anywhere.

.

So I've tuned all the tv & radios to channel sesame street

... now the only thing that makes me anxious is my mortality

.

cause the hosts Bob and Maria got old.

4am...

Birds are loud ...

They woke me from my dream,

it would be kind to wait till 8...

But they can't be told

.

So I'm awake.
