I started learning how to write songs, play the ukelele and sing in 2021. Here is a sample of my writing.

Shining brightly amongst the brittle and broken

Don't let the masses dim your outspoken


Golden leaf, confetti rain,

the world is graced by all your pain


Melted down and cast again, you'll never be the same again


Life ain't what is shouldn't be,  nor will it ever be


Melt down and cast again, you can be the change again

Gold

BOW TIE

Pretty, sitting nicely tidied on your chest

Its cute and funny how it makes you look

I can see the twinkle in your eye

You're proud as punch

Wink wink, I've see that smile

Cheekily and warmly assuring me that you're just fine

You trot on by, I can feel you quirk tickle by me

I love you, I love you, I really do

Bouncing to Dad, you make me cry

Tears roll down my love stricken eye

I haven't loved you as much as I do now

 

SKY

Sky blue oh baby how I love you.


Your blushing and gushing with depthless beauty.

I gasp at your nothingness which goes on and on and on and on.

Your smell of a crisp new day never ceases to take my breath away.


I bathe in all your glory for you hold the space for me cry, laugh, play and die.


Every night I go to bed with you and your deep deep blue.

Your stars shoot and crackle and burn through the night.


You fill my heart, my cup and my smile with a knowing,

A knowing that today's gift is all but one deep breath away.

 

Ugh gosh I can't stand your smell

How will I even perform as well when all I see is hell

One, two, three, four raspberries in my porridge

Countlessly counting my life away


Five, six, seven, eight my weight clings to my frame

Fearing the wicked criticism coming from my own mind

A never ending quest for perfectionism orchestrates my existence

I can never seem to placate the demons within

Rushing around in my head, whirring from a merry-go-round

Ballerina
