C H A O S

Could I not see such ugly drawn out choices.

Hollow I feel such nothing for people it is fear that feeds me.

Alone in this forsaken world with nothing to accept.

Order is such pain that it is nothing but chains.

Souls that bare nothing but lost cause to confusion is such utter mistakes.

RUNAWAY - from this - TRAIN

Riding in the kiddies section all day long at an amusement park Underestimating the number of people crowding every turn Noticed a train pass by ……… hmmmmmmm???????…. Always wondered what a thrill it would be…….. Walking toward the loading Depot with anticipation A fear grips my t-shirt and begins to pull me back “You sure you want to board this large train”? Fear whispers The conductor begins his call …”All Aboard!”…….”ALL ABOARD!!!” Recorded history begins to play and then .. click, clack .. chookie …choo …choo And the loudest whistle I’ve ever heard , TOOOOT….TOOOOOOOT I grip Mama’s neck and begin to scream loud sounds of my own Never again will I board an 8 MPH runaway train ==============

Reflections: Midlife Crisis

P     aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A     cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N     othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I      nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C     hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace

The Message

I'm not the greatest of all-times, but when I'm done, I'll be an all time great in this lifetime of mine Like the late great who came before my time I will breed a new lifeline, that will breathe life like march of dimes My story lines, will bring truth life; like troops who fight Overseas, for rights of those who believe that death is life Now that ain't right! As the rich is getting richer, eating fillet me-non, while we barely feeding our appetite Night after night Survival has waged a war that gave us no choice but to battle and fight Although, we'll be all right They say we a dying breed, but that ain't right Instead we're the light to a lying greed That will enlighten life to a brand new seed A man of God indeed Freed from the Son that bleeds Like the summer breeze He's the sum that equals the amount of air I breathe The air that please A satisfaction like the birds and the bees My word's words are the keys That will fornicate with the mind and give birth to a seed A seed of social change, that'll change our social economy So shall our comradery That will bring comfort to a struggling society A synonym...similar to a civilization seeking for unity Unifying the physics of theory That seeks to explain the synopsis of a dying philosophy Similar to the Cosby X-cept my scrip-tic will speak more about our reality Like life's calamity And everything else in life that's destroying us systematically However, I've discovered a system That can mathematically destroy ignorancy And turn our state of mind intellectually I elect that He (God) selects me to be And be that man who may lead this community So that they (My Peoples) may commute with me En-route to a destination, destine towards our destiny Like we were destine to be We were meant to be "Great" like the late great that came before we. Because we are... The reflection where perfection gave birth to the definition of greatness Where great means Competent, Skilled, Well Informed, and Tremendous Our potentials are endless And only we not even the enemy can put an end to this So it's time we put a stop to this The biggest enemy of self And that's envy and jelousness Cause after this is Heaven or Hell and that's all there is A promised made sealed with a kiss Knowing this Is the next best thing since "In the beginning" In the first chapter of the first verse in Genesis!

Wish

Whispering heartache unfolds in torture
Incisions decorate the outside of you
See the river of lost hope unfold in a pond of red
How many will know you are dead

Tough Mudder

Today’s the day.
Our training is to be put on display.
Upon each is a test of the heart.
Guts to do it all from the start.
Here we go over the first wall, sublime.

Men and Women at the line.
Utter the words “HOO RAH” in time.
Determined to finish the challenge ahead.
Defined by how they react to others in dread.
Each of us who finish the course and stand.
Reach a new respect for those who sport the orange headband.

Everytime I Look Around The Corner

I live a life in a place where alcohol violence reigns supreme/ 
over a dying culture split in se7en groups of se7enty times se7en of rival teams/
 I hear my brothers hollers I hear my sisters screams/ 
I see people live among broken glass like that of many broken dreams/
 I sometimes wish I could not see what my two eyes sometimes see/ 
I cant act blind as if it were just a brush off my sleeve/
 The more I lose in life the more it seems the less I need/
 I try and overcome my own selfish greed/ 
I got a child on the way I now look at what kind of role model I'd be/ 
I was was incarcerated so I must not take for granted for the simple fact that Im free/
 But it hard with tattoos on my face in place where tattoos like mine seem a disgrace/
 Lord watch over me as I take last place in this life game race/ 
It not a matter of being first second or third Lord cuz all I need iz your grace/
 help me to better walk off this destructive road and slow my pace/ 
Just take me now if Im done with your purpose if thats the case/
Because I dont want to live like I got to look over my shoulder right around the corner....

Lightning

L-ightening flashed and lit the sky
I-ndeed it was a storm nearby
G-usts of wind and sounds of thunder
H-igh in the clouds and way down under
T-rees and houses shaking with fear
N-ot a person had a minute to spare
I-t was never so scary at night
N-ever ever was the sky so bright
G-rannies and children all cuddled up tight.

Misery

Meet me at the end
Inside the fire we'll begin
See what you've done to these men
Even Ive had enough of this
Realize that you have sinned
You will burn in your insolence

Nightmare

                              NIGHTMARE


             On a stormy night I awoke from a dream
               to find that I wasn't there ,
              was I awake or still in my dream
                or should I even care .
               My thoughts were all gone for something is wrong\
               for my room was upside down ,
              patterns of chaos infected my mind
                without making a sound .
             A hot hellish breeze blew through my house
               as devils danced in my head ,
              For something wicked came this way
                could it be under my bed  ?
              As sunlight poured into my room  
                I knew that I was alright ,
               or could it be that my mind was gone
                 taken during the night !

Before I Die

Before I go, please know it was for the best that I do this.
Explain to me first why are you giving up? 
Frantic decisions are destroying any hope I have for us.
Or is this not my fault?
Really think about it and be honest.
Eternity can be ended with four simple words.

I don't love you

Don't give up on me, please listen to the truth first.
I swear I love you and I always will. 
Eliminate any anger and accept that we were both wrong and realize you do love me...before I die.

Justice

Justice must see day in all situations

Universe is calling to those with ears

Society must listen and understand

Too many times, much is said no one hearing

Invisible attention in action

Creating and promoting hypocrisy

Enough is Enough, Justice must Reign!

Survive

Struggling to stay alive.
Uncertain of what happens next.
Running from the inevitable.
Valuing every second more than the last.
Instinct controls your every move.
Visions of doom flood your mind.
Elusion seems futile.

BLACK

Bathed in darkness thick as cream
Linen-soft shadows fostering dreams
As dark cloudy swaths block out the light
Covering the moon in the midst of the night
Kids cower deeper under their sheets.

MONSTER

<     >He roams the streets,day and night 
          he shows no respect to senior citizens
          he bullies woman and children
          he swears to anyone over everything
          disrespect is his middle name
          he is a monster

           he finds joy in terror he plants in people
           screams of woman and children    
            their  fear completes his whole being
            he has no emotions.he has no fear
            he destroys everything he comes in contact with
            
            he has no mother he has no creator 
            he has no shepherd 
            he fell like hail from hell,he rapes and kills
            he humiliates then powerless for his pleasure
            monster of the nation

             he has love of weapons,knives and guns
             he demands and never asks
              he is a man of loose morals
             he is the evil we all hate

             as if he owns the world
              he  roams free in the streets of our nation
              he lost track of yesterday and has no tomorrow

Dead Winter

Deadly frigid air flows thru into your skin.
Even though you are covered heavily not thin,
Ailing bones are chilled and ache from within.
Driving your soul to seek warmth, even in sin,

Winter is always brutal no matter when it does begin.
I endure the opacity, much as possible within my den.
Nearer the intensity grows; I know soon spring will win.
Traces of a devil in white, deceiver that brings chagrin,
Evil darkness with blinding whiteness portrays Mickey Finn.
Revelations that you hide will slip up unto pallid skin.

Pick Your Poison

P ower held with in my grip "Run *****, run"
i nnocence once taken can never be un-ripped
c olorful the names they'll call me now, hateful
k eep your pity, you've not poisoned my soul. 

y earling limbs spread for you and you rode
o nly anger lofted life above the bloody fray
u ntil today you'd thought nothing of my pain
r ancid was your heart, but there are many deaths.

p igeon holed in the alley of your miserable hovel
o n a night as hot as hell, what will it be dear I ask
I display a fine array of knifes and a scatter gun
s oftly I whisper "Run bastard, run" and laugh
I t appeared, he could not make a manly choice?
N o, poison was too meek, too impersonal for my voice.

STARTING A NEW YEAR

Shades stored away
Tattoos removed 
Articled reviewed
Room painted as clay
Tarot left unread  
Ink spills on pencils
Nails manicured  
Got rid of nickels 
American heroes return 
New medals are given
End their hurdles again
With a handful of kindness and generosity
Year after year they fought the enemy
Enraged mothers wail with pain
America still mourns
Rampage of innocents

A Freedom Cry

A long time ago we were plagued with tyranny.
Freedom was their quest, ancestors won it morally.
Real freedom comes with hard work and tenacity.
Everyone wants a free ride, as is happening currently.
Each, of us is becoming an insincere, minority.
Delivering, into their hands, all the precious authority,
Our lives have become, what our ancestors, fled in posterity.
Many liberties and independence, is being taken by piracy.
Causing, loss of stability to our way of life and past warranty,
Rebellion is not needed yet, though it may become an irony.
Yes, we are allowing our choice, to be forced into conformity.

Grim

Gruesome of appearance, the dungeon a fearful place
Rusty chains hanging down, iron maiden by the wall 
It was a harsh stern place that spoke volumes of pain
Made worse by gloomy creepy shadows casting monsters

DAMAGE

Drain out the violence from the paintbrush and smear it to the canvas 

Aggressive creatures scuttle into my expanding cranium

Memories of him echoes through the forest…into the atmosphere

Astonishing screams of misfortune filter the forest where he once trailed

Great solitude and rage tortures us all…we will not fall!

Everlasting breakage paints me a portrait of turmoil and what not

10-313 Untold

He saw me I saw him
We leaped for greatness
But we were earth bound
He surpasses my hopes
And shatters my dreams
I feel darkness in him which I bravely embrace
He’s my hope my shield my love
My undivided trust
With him
I feel that I can reach bounds and mounts of greatness
So why do I still feel so empty

PAIN

Penetrative prodigious plundering pestilential prod of pain
Ambiguous avarice amassing astounding avalanche of ache
Injuriously instigating incessant inconsolable irritation
Nattering numbness needling nerves to nail the heart with fire and fear. 
                                 ii
Feathers flocking night
The rocks gnaw the flesh of sight
Icarus groans death

The stake through the tongue
The vice tightens without end
I crumble in skin

What singes the brain
Stranding me in motion scraps -
The hog teeth of pain.

                                 iii
O Christ, your cross spike
My flesh, plundering virtue
From my callousness.

Trembling nail in me
Biting bone breaking blood's vein
Winces through the night

Vinegar or gall
I would drink for ease of pain
And blind fear of death

Yet to die is ease
I seek but grimace away
In sweat and shaking.

Handle With Care

Heavy hearted I battle to get up
Alone I long to drink from her cup
Never has love been kind to me
Delivering blows to my psyche 
Leaving me feeling down and out
Every day's a struggle to go about  

When will be my time to rise
I must shed my disguise
Take a taste of my love
Here I am my mourning dove

Come and take a little chance 
A night of love and romance
Regret nothing, fear no one
Enjoy a new rise of the sun

Anxiety

Anxious worry seizes my heart
Now my pulse quickens and wavers
X-ray my chest and find my heart's compression
I try to calm down but it's simply no use
The stress builds and the world spins
Every thought pushes me deeper into panic
Yesterday it was paying for my groceries

Vanishing Stars


Smothered skies of soot sink into raging flames 
Torches lift to boundless heavens, blanketing faces with
Autumn air too weary and weighted to breathe
Infuriated fire storm consumes ferociously  
Rampant fury creates a stairway to the vanishing stars  
While the wild inferno blots out the moonlight 
Ashes float for miles through a thick fog of smoke
Yesterday the sun sparkled in an endless sapphire sky
Today an amber blaze threatens to engulf the darkness
Over crackling timber, choking constellations scatter  
Terror overtakes the once serene woodland dale   
Homes are abandoned, cherished keepsakes fuel the fury  
Ethereal howls from hell's hounds spark nightmares 
Sirens wailing from the frontlines ascend with prayers 
Trembling hands and hearts lift to Heaven 
Astral visions of celestial illumination in the mind's eye 
Raise hopes for tomorrow's sacred star-filled sky to return
Sanctification of smoldering ground will bring rebirth

Unworthy

Startled at the sight of you
Heart still bleeds tears every time I see you 
All the horrific memories began to recollect in my head
Red bruises, burns and black eyes
Keep appearing every day you did 
All I could do was take it

Sit there as you complained 
Evil eyes craving into my soul
Love Lost
Life Gone
Many women don’t know their worth
Appreciate your body and know your worth
Never let a man tear you down, to where you feel like nothing.

Winchester

Wandering…waiting, I find myself back to you
In search forever, never meaning to be blue
Never wanting to want you, but wanting anyway
Chastising myself and despairing everyday
How can you be so wonderful to me?
Even the thought of seeing you again makes me want to flee
Surrendering into your beautiful eyes I love
Telling myself to never give up
Ever longing, I will still wait to see you again
Rendering my love to you…far to distant England

Scream

In this dream...

Scream -- the figment of a dream, but so much more
Confusion rakes my brain, closes each door
Right from the start, he has meandered through my visions
Empty and cold, I find him making my decisions
Adding painful secrets that stain my real life...and there's
Much more to come...with the force of a knife...

In this dream of reality...

Help Lost

Head scrambled, bejangled, and no longer together. 

Everlasting you said, but nothing lasts forever.

Letting me think that, was a trick but not clever.

Percentages say you’re the reason of my endeavor.



Laugh as you will its all good.

Our time dwindles at the rate it should.

Still you’d stop the time if you could.

To bad this is real life, or you would.

JAGUAR

Jagged, hunting
knife in hand…I chop
up chunks of meat
for my pet jaguar…he
fires me up with
painful passion – he
hands me one of his
9 lives with his
handy, giant paw . .
. I'm shocked - I
didn't expect this
at all . . . he
caught me before I
was gonna make an
embarrassing fall -
thank you, fuzzy
friend for helping
me stand tall and
all! 
Ahh! Look at his
talons…his claws rip
through human flesh
and animal
flesh…bird flesh
also! This
particular jaguar,
by the name of Spy
Jaggerswag, has a
desire to hunt down
anything that moves;
he even chews up
outrageously massive
roaches when he sees
them, crawling about
on the forest floor
or on a forest tree
Giving Spy his meal
with boldness by
throwing it into his
big bowl, he runs
hungrily towards his
bowl and devours it
in seconds with one
bite literally – I
hesitate with sudden
fear…ooh…at least it
wasn’t a chunk of
me, right? He won’t
eat me up – I’m his
outlandish owner
anyhow…though he’s
vicious and spiteful
at times - run with
your might - let me
race you to see who
wins - this will be
totally tight! We're
taking fearless
flight, despite our
lack of light, but
we're not succumbed
to fright, alright?
xD You're something
else - we sit on the
bricked wall,
sparkling anew in a
moon-drenched night
Unpredictable nature
is how I describe
his nature…with
wildness I must add!
His coat is as black
as midnight and his
eyes penetrate my
soul – green and
yellow with twisted,
breathtaking beauty
and blazing angst 
Ah yes, he has a
good side of him
nevertheless – he’s
as harmless as a
kitten and I massage
his velvet-like,
ebony fur with
blissful admiration
and I have no fear
when he’s near my
side – he saves me
from upcoming
trouble and he’s not
a foe, but he’s a
remarkable friend,
though at first I
was ahh!-frightened
of him – he doesn’t
intimidate me, but
still catches me off
guard and I tease
him back…we do play
pretty rough no
doubt about that!
RAWRZ! He sneaks
right behind me,
scaring me out of my
wits – that silly,
gigantic cat! He’s
ferocious obviously,
but he does have a
bit of spunk and
awesomeness in him!
I thank Spy for not
having me for his
feast – he’s burly,
brave and beast!
 

~inspired and
dedicated to my
trustworthy, furry
buddy/big black cat
by the name of Spy.
He's one of my
favorite pets of all
time. No joke!
