Money game

Eclipse
Moon
Enough,
Enough
Close the doors please 🙏


“Strange times we're living in
World can put fear in ya
Hierarchy parties, they make us feel inferior
Greed runs through the parliament interior
Devils walk among us, they fit the criteria
Eerie theories strike fear in weary minded men
When we're clearly living in dictatorships
Nearly blinded by illusions to choose
But who's fooling who?
A ball chained to your shoes
I'm pained, it's a crying shame
The pursuit of our own wealth lights a flame
That makes greed a game that lets the whole world burn
As the world turns, the whole world burns
Money was invented for trade
But now those bits of paper twist hearts, make slaves
Turns a saint into a sinner, a child into a killer
His finger on the trigger of a money game
Oh, rain, rain, rain, rain
A storm, it comes our way
And those who rise through distorted lies
Poison in the veins
But we like to point the blame, blame, blame, blame
It's easier to blame
But point the mirror at ourselves
We're all part of this old money game
This old money game
This old
Dear Mr. President, it's evident that everyone's a resident
Of fear when they support the ideas that keep us separate
When they make us believe that everybody
Is coming to terrorise you in the streets
They say proudly through gritted teeth
"It's my right to hate, that's freedom of speech!"
When did freedom become a reason to hate?
A way to justify a racial slur or insult we make
There's an irony in freedom, because us in the west
We have pillaged and plundered and murdered like savages
Colonised all of the rest, that's called hypocrisy
Preach a certain value that you'd never keep yourselves
If your country was in flames, you'd emigrate yourselves in a second
Still, you spit your venom, demonising immigrants
When really, you're an immigrant
'Cause all of us are immigrants
Or descended from immigrants
The irony is imminent, I'll shed the light on immigrants
America was colonised by Britain
Britain, it was colonised by Rome
Also, colonised by the Saxons
They were German, by the way
You know how people throw shade upon the Germans
'Cause of history's pain
And yet we make the same mistakes all again
Demonise a whole people, Jewish or Muslim the same and the same
Old situations play on repeat
The same old TV shows repeat
Yeah, we worship the bleak
Our opinions aren't our own and we follow like sheep
There's no left, there's no right
In the middle we sleep
Rain, rain, rain, rain
A storm, it comes our way
And those who rise through distorted lies
Poison in the veins
But we like to point the blame, blame, blame, blame
It's easier to blame
But point the mirror at ourselves
We're all part of this old money game
This old money game
This old money game”

A painting I began in 2011 and never finished. My husband just found it in basement. I call it ‘priere’

Timely.

Today I'm having a f*ck it day..
Fuck community noise, fuck difficulty in relationships, fuck restrictions, fuck this sick world fuck chores,,,
Hello spirit, hello peace ✌️ hello calm hello surrender hello heart ♥ hello one love hello

Excuse me for swearing its not a good god thing...
I spoke to the heavens and said this world is hard living
And so with this expression of tension, toil and grief
I turn and look the window and see a falling leaf 🍂
Reminding of the beauty and nature all around
That doesn't project anger and doesn't make loud sounds
It's beauty is intrinsic
Of peace and hope and light
We merge with its spirit and drift peacefully away from plight..

And so as autumn happens and winter comes around
Hibernation is on offer and gifts can be found.
So as the bears and creatures snuggle deep below
And so do friends we huddle and feel safety down low
And form our cacoons of safety of peace and love and calm

My friends who hold the Grace and all u do always show
Of just how heart ♥ led we are the light will never go
Keep being there for each other in side our spirits strong
Forming our holding hands around this planet 🌏 long xx

It’s very much so ok.
Swearing at times, is cathartic in my head 😜
Espppeecciaaaaalllyyy during insane eclipse full moon sandwiches.

Aw Emma, did you write this?
I really like it! 💗💎🌹✨
 
Ye I've started speaking out loud more... Its very validating...
The commentary to my earthly experinece..
Rest time now.. Ear plugs in..
Neighbours deaf and the TV is def ON
 
@Sunshine........A painting worth a thousand words.

Do you know anything more about Ren? Is there a place one can find out more about him or his background?
 
Some of his bio on Spotify..

I just saw he is also in a band called 'The Big Push' this track really shows off his singing vocals often not so common with rappers..
His range is very incredible also the styles of music he can do.
I've v excited by this guy.
He also sang on track for the unrest film.
I'd really like to know where he is from in the UK one of my boundaries is to not Google artists cause I can get all compare and despair for the life I never had..

Yeah, I originally was going to show the light emanating from their bodies amidst prayer…but, never was able to finish this. So you can imagine it instead ✨🙏
