No Say

Tiger Bay now known as Cardiff Bay

If I had my way it would still be called Tiger Bay

But we don't have A say in the place we stay

Aristocrats are the main players im just a poet in A play

So i won't follow blindly

Knowing the truth won't lead me astray

They potray us as scum

We A close knit community

Living in a place…

My Community

I'm from A close knit community

Some living in luxury

Which ease's the pain of those living in poverty

We don't feel the classism rivalry

Nor do we support the racism in society

Full heartedly I'm against that negative ideology

I'm positive with my thoughts never half hearted

Bring us justice i'm with you no matter the colour

Free my sister from…

Our visit to Aberystwyth

The show in Aberystwyth was amazing, It was the first time most off us (Ali,Ahmed,Daud and Bash) watched a thearte show. It was quite interesting because we thought we'd just be watching a show, But it played out quite different. Everyone was given an ipod as soon as you pressed play you'd have to follow the instructions carefully. Every one set out in a different direction, at times it seemed we were in a scary movie, passing graveyards and other ancient site. It was a good tour around the…

I was reading these the other day and thought they might have meaning for you ... It is a few letters of correspondence between the poet Rilke and an aspiring poet, on what it is (and what is required) to be an artist and a person. You can buy them in a book, or they are here on the Internet :-)



Here is a quote from the first letter: 

"You ask whether your verses are any good. You ask me. You have asked others before this. You send them to magazines. You compare them with other poems, and you are upset when certain editors reject your work. Now (since you have said you want my advice) I beg you to stop doing that sort of thing. You are looking outside, and that is what you should most avoid right now. No one can advise or help you - no one. There is only one thing you should do. Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple "I must", then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse.

Then come close to Nature. Then, as if no one had ever tried before, try to say what you see and feel and love and lose."

No problem. I used to write poetry when I was younger. I'll try and dig some out, but think I left them in Australia ... am not really any good ... but love to read and listen to others!
