Trying to get casual

Its a new month, a new day

to some a new environment

A new people, new faces

some familiar(close to none), yet friendly or none

I try to get casual, to fit in here

My head spins, faster than it ever did

I need to think faster, make decisons

All which i will be liable in th long run

I call my girl, her voice calms me down

Its a new challenge, i asked for it, I need to face it

I try to get casual, to fit in here.

I loo around, trying to get familiar

At least i know the bath rooms, and the kitchen

Before i get to know my telephone extension,

someone already called, i can see the name,

but the face,,all lost in the 1001 people i was inducted to

I try to get casual, to fit in here

i miss the old life, but i cannot afford the luxury of comfort

I need to woman up, get my ass up and face the world

its what i was created for

slowly i sip my drink, and call it lunch

In no time i will be back to serious face

like that of the boss, but wait, my name is Tiffz the smily one

But at word i gonna have to be Tiffz the serious one,

Until am settled, then I can smile all I want, its in me

I will be casual then, and well fit in

My Opportunity

Under the glow of the very bright lights
I turn my face towards the warm night sky
And I am not afraid of a thousand eyes
When they’re above
Five hundred smiles

Oh I used to think
What wouldn’t I give
For a moment like this?
This moment is gift

Oh, now look at me
And this opportunity
Is standing right in front of me
But one thing I know
It’s only part luck and so
I’m putting on my best show
Under the spotlight
I’m starting my life
Big dreams becoming real tonight
So look at me and this opportunity
You’re witnessing my moment, you see?

Now I find myself here, and it’s time
Yes this is real, and it’s a gold-mine
I’m not afraid to fly
When it’s above five hundred smiles

Oh I used to think
What wouldn’t I give
For a moment like this?
This moment this gift

Oh, now look at me
And this opportunity
Is standing right in front of me
But one thing I know
It’s only part luck and so
I’m putting on my best show
Under the spotlight
I’m starting my life
Big dreams becoming real tonight
So, look at me and this opportunity
You’re witnessing my moment, you see?

My big opportunity
Yeah, I won’t waste it
I guarantee

The tower bell

bellcall it bell tower, carillons any can do

how could i forget, it was my worst species

OK that’s  fifteen years ago

so high, tiny yet so noisy

5.00am was the time it mercilessly rang,

making me rush out of bed, at only 10years, to cold shower

damn it! I thank heavens i grew up finally

ours was a significance of time

i wish it rang at least a minute later, poor wishes

they said it gives as sense of grandeur, but i believe its for a selected few

perhaps the community of nuns,for worship hours

i hated it, it was torturous, a 10year old, up at 5am

but the feelings changed, when it rang, close to lunch hour

yeah, eating hour, despite my svelte body

despite the poor quality of food,

nonetheless , choices were limited, so quickly we bolted

the tower bell, towered so graciously

ours was a bit analog, you could see us count

the ringing method was tiring

one, two—seven..seven times represented 1pm

our favorite

just who had all the strength to pull and push the heavy bell

did he wake up at 5am to do the same

at ten of age, nothing like electronic made sense

Today am better, can relate to it

All in all forever live the bell, with its pros and cons

Just say yes

                  yes

I’m running out of ways to make you see
I want you to stay here beside me
I won’t be okay and I won’t pretend I am
So just tell me today and take my hand

Please take my hand
Please take my hand
Please take my hand
Please take my hand

Just say yes
Just say there’s nothing holding you back
It’s not a test
Nor a trick of the mind, only love

It’s so simple and you know it is, you know it is
We can’t be to and fro like this all our lives
You’re the only way, the path is clear
What do I have to say to you for God’s sake, dear?

For God’s sake, dear
For God’s sake, dear
For God’s sake, dear
For God’s sake, dear

Just say yes
Just say there’s nothing holding you back
It’s not a test
Nor a trick of the mind, only love

Just say yes
‘Cause I’m aching and I know you are too
For the touch
Of your warm skin as I breathe you in

I can feel your heart beat through my shirt
This was all I wanted, all I want

It’s all I want
It’s all I want
It’s all I want
It’s all I want

Just say yes
Just say there’s nothing holding you back
It’s not a test
Nor a trick of the mind, only love

Just say yes
‘Cause I’m aching and I know you are too
For the touch
Of your warm skin as I breathe you in

Snow Patrol

she did it, again

i thought i said no,,that mama

shouting makes her ease up,

but lo! she never hears, she is use d to the tantrums

she does it even more annoyingly

what happened this time

i i i stammers never end

in no time, its a gone story

not until the house flares up

didn’t i make myself clear

its routine,

we sit still wait for the drama

then resume to the TV, the snares disheartening

mama never ceases to scream, inborn you may say

she says we must be upright

we grown up ass ladies

caning , not an option,

whats left is the loud bangs and screams

she hopes we might give her a long term ear

it happens, too often

she is grown up, makes her decison

mamas shouts not a worry anymore

if only she could listen, just once

the house would be peaceful, until then

i thought i said no,,that mama, back to where we started
