Never absolute


Ego’s growing, be carful by how much

Stay grounded, keep growing or end up loosing touch



Don’t want to loose focus

Don’t want to be materialistic or vain

We are all the same, juggling the good & the bad

How much of me will remain?


Best way to maintain it is really with your mind?

Educate, aspire & entertain, its one of a kind

Need to keep on reading

It’s my mind I’m constantly feeding

All it takes is a little believing

Your life is what you make it

Make it real so you’re not awake but just dreaming


Say what you want, I can’t read your mind

Maybe I need to ask the questions right

Look forward to what I find


The key is to regularly warm up the brain

Work it out, do the maths; it’s only a simple equation

The key is you never completely stay the same

Knowledge enlightens, come up with the right persuasion

Being very positive with life, you get a salute

May be born working class, but it’s never absolute

Life can take you far, be carful how you choose your route

You go far if you learn to turn it up, but able to press mute

-          You go far if you learn to appreciate & aspire better

Don’t throw wisdom down the chute

Don’t judge a book by its cover

Judge by how ugly inside

Birds of a feather, flock together

Trust & loyalty, feel at ease, unwind

  • Comment from author about the poem: This is more of a reflection than a poem. It was written at a time I developed a song writing ambition. The best way I could write endlessly & unrestricted was to write about myself, questioning and inquiring about people in general, myself as a man and life with its ideals.

    It is a reflection indeed, and yet it seems most of your postings are likewise reflections.
    The beginning couplet is quite the warning. (In S2L2 you mean "vain")
    It is a very interesting and thought-provoking meditation.
    Yes, I think the best way to maintain lies with our minds, what we believe and follow, whether we are deceived or turn aside from the Truth to something more enticing, whether we can see clearly or not.
    The title sets the stage that we never want to be stuck in our ways methinks, not that we don't believe in absolutes.
    It is quite the discussion. Fascinating. The usual hopeful conclusion that maybe we can escape our present "class" to higher and that we must learn to truly if possible see others and not be deceived by outward appearances.

      Thanks. How do you do it? You hit the nail on the head again!! Your right "we never want to be stuck in our ways" especially when they're bad habits.
      There's always more or we can be more despite words from negative individuals who try to keep us down, but never out.
