How Do We Wake Up

        “How do we wake up?” My friend asked me this very open ended question. And I gave them a comprehensive answer eventually. (This is a first draft and subsequent versions will have relevant links to books and videos on each subject.) First, a bit of advice. I never listen to anyone […]

Enlightenment, conflicting desires and emotional growth

We all have conflicting desires. We all sometimes have desires or emotions that may go against our core beliefs or highest held ideals. We’re all hypocrites. At least in thought, if not in action. The sooner we accept that about ourselves and each other the sooner we can evolve as individuals and therefore as a […]

My yearly ‘Tax Return Rant’, Living with Toothache, Online Privacy and other recent rants and lyrics!

Tax return. I just did it. Yeah, it was as accurate as I could make it, but there were estimations. Why? Cos I’m a poet, not an accountant, I hate paperwork and I hate maths so being forced to do both let alone either by a government that spends my taxes on illegal wars upsets […]

Apocalypse Never (Sinking Ship part 2)

Maybe the apocalypse is ALWAYS tomorrow, So tapdance on the sinking ship, don’t wallow in sorrow, Maybe the ship will always and forever be sinking, They say time doesn’t exist, it’s not what we’ve been thinking. Sugar… Is highly addictive And besides heartbreak toothache’s the worst pain I’ve self inflicted, I got a sweet tooth, […]

Bluebells, Angels, Soundsystems and Mic Cords

She said “most little girls won’t look for a prince, so they won’t find him, they’re looking for a villain and hope to find a prince inside him, most grown women learn better and some wise girls know from the start”, But I don’t play the game of faking villain, life ain’t a game, it’s […]

This Time Last Year

This time last year I would have described myself as depressed. I’m not now. I’ve not been writing philosophical essays so much recently. Writing in that way for me tends to come out of introspection, often fuelled by depression. I’ve been in a good mood generally recently. I’ve been writing more raps again. It’s easier […]

The Illusions of Space, Time and Self

So I don’t know what “I” means. I don’t know where I end and the rest of the universe begins. Einstein said that time is an illusion. But then death and birth are simultaneous, as is the rest of life. But if self is an illusion, and time is an illusion what are we all […]

Love, Death and More Love

The inevitability of death is most painful to me right now, the feeling will pass and it’s such a typical existential angst that it hardly seems worth mentioning. But it’s there at the back of my mind, that and an inability to express my love for everyone to the extent I would like to. Either […]
