Poem: Just Be

Just be, a poem by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

They say we that must obey
Follow orders every day

They say we that must conform
Can that be why I was born

That we must always blend in
From start of life til ending

Don’t you ever rock the boat
You will lose your right to vote

Always colour in the lines
Or else you might get big fines

Rules are only to save us
Or are they to enslave us

Make sure you fit in a box
Like a sheep not like a fox

You can fit in if you choose
Believe stories in the news

Fill your mind with all those lies
The real truth they do disguise

Must be part of the system
Don’t try to hack that system

Just a cog in the machine
You can smash it with a dream

Look inside you know it’s true
Love life whatever you do

Remember your mind is free
Be yourself, you can “just be”

Poem: The Concept Of Happiness

The concept of happiness, a poem by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

Happiness means different things,
to different people
What can fill one person with joy,
doesn’t always please all
The media tells you to buy,
things they claim give you smiles
The only person that’s grinning,
counts their money in piles
Money doesn’t make you happy,
and nor does loads of stuff
All that will happen in the end,
is that payday will be tough
What will truly make you happy,
what really makes your days
Spending time with friends and family,
feeling the sunshines rays
Do the things that make you happy,
enjoy it while you can
While thinking about the future,
have a flexible plan
Don’t worry about the others,
live your life for yourself
Find what matters deep inside you,
don’t worry about wealth
Find someone that makes you happy,
just find that special one
Someone that makes you feel so safe,
someone that makes life fun

Poem: Being free to be me

Being Free To Be Me, an LGBT / Mental health poem

Written by Daphne Tore / Dean Thorpe

I am me,

I will always be me,

nobody I’d rather be than me

I am free,

I don’t need any key,

to be whatever I want to be

They see me,

people always judge me,

I am not what I appear to be

Drink some tea,

or have a chat with me,

think whatever you want about me

Look and see,

most don’t really know me,

so try to really understand me

I will be,

​whatever I will be,

doesn’t matter if they accept me

Come with me,

so we can all be free,

to live our lives how we want to be

Just be free,

you are free to just be,

you can be you and I can be me!
