The Day The Tin Foil Hats Broke – Revealing the truth.

op

I thought it was time for another outing for this poem I wrote a while back 🙂 

 

 

 

It was something that I’d come to dread

That every thought within my head

would burst from my mouth, as it spoke,

the day the tin foil hats broke.

 

My Uncle said “What is it son?”

For I had turned quite pale and wan,

my face was screwed up really tight

while my thoughts were picked up by satellite.

 

“My tin foil hat has broken!” I cried

My Uncle just looked smug and sighed

“Well, Nephew I wouldn’t worry a jot,

with your brain, it’s not going to reveal a lot”.

 

I had a longing for something that

would keep my thoughts under my hat

My tangled mind, tortured and petty

had spilled its contents like boiling spaghetti.

 

A tangled jungle of vine and fern,

revealed that I had failed to learn,

my head was empty of meaningful things

but I knew by heart the Lord of the Rings.

 

Like a boiled egg, my mind was bare

without any useful facts in there,

My Uncle said “Now you have a mission

“you should become a politician”

 

But still I worried, how could that fly?

When I couldn’t ever tell a lie.

but thankfully, and rather shocking,

a new foil hat was in my Christmas Stocking.

You’ll be fine tomorrow

The windows of you mind

show the sadness and the sorrow

but don’t cry, because tomorrow

you’ll be fine.

It’s all in your mind.

 

Dry those tears that you cry,

this is not the time for worry, 

that gets you  nowhere in a hurry.

Just dry,

Those tears you cry.

 

The sunshine my have gone

but it returns before too long

just keep smiling through the pain

and you’ll find you’ll live again.

Just be Strong.

Tomorrow will come along.

 

Your eyes betray your thoughts,

the raw emotions felt inside.

You feel there’s nowhere safe to hide

That’s not true.

You will cope and muddle through.

 

Just keep trying, that’s the key.

The future isn’t something bad.

Keep on going, you’ll be glad 

that you did.

Tomorrow’s worth it you will see.

 

Though you fight and fear you’ll lose,

the winnings worth the wait.

If you give in, then you choose

to be the victim of your fate.

People who succeed in life, 

have but one thing the same

they kept going through the strife,

though they failed and failed again.

Please take heed of my advice

and you’ll be in a happy mood

you’ll be knocked down once or twice

but after bad times will come good.

Those who quit will live in sorry,

but there is always tomorrow.

You’ll be fine.

It’s all in your mind.
