Princess Philomena 1

She who is the light and hope in love complete
I kneel in your grace
A story that really gripped me deeply
as my mother told me with such pride in her voice

Protectress of the most Holy living rosary 
she has preformed countless miracles
A young virgin who was martyred at the age of 13
She willingly gave her life to the heavenly sacrifice
daughter of light you shine heroic
Blessed with the virtues of purity,obedience and humility
the anchor of hope in deep dark despair
I promised someone really dear to me
precious in my heart with love
to write this story

She was the daughter of a prince stunning beautiful
coming from a small state in Greece
who her family became Christians 
in baptism she became the daughter off, light
One day while in the city the family went for an audience
with the great emperor, when he saw her 
he appeared possessed in his mannerism
during the whole time within conversations 
Now her father was dazzled with his honor
he willingly accepted his proposal of marriage
her father and mother tried everything to induce her to yield
to their demands she turned to them and said
I never break a promise once made
in the one she had made to Jesus
saying her virginity belongs to him
No longer can I dispose of it
They tried everything in their power
her father began attacking her in his own shame
in violent rage and anger and her mother tried to induce her to yield
they tried everything with her that was possibly know to them
Until both her parents fell on their knees begging
with tears that were overwhelming their eyes
pleading with her to please take pity on them
No was her answer final on the subject
she had vowed herself to God and her kingdom is in Heaven
She was brought before the emperor at the time
he flew into a mad violent fit of anger mixed with rage
influenced by the devil himself
He flung her into the palace prison
thinking to himself with pain and suffering
and with great shame in her courage he constantly attacked her
some which were almost fatal to her purity of blessing
had it not been for the hand and grace of God
Her prayers supported her 
those she made to the love of Jesus
and to her most holy mother with her only son
now being held in captivity 37 days in total
always in a heavenly mist of light 
Our Blessed most Holy Mother supreme through the eyes of all women
bride of our Lord the Father God the creator
our Blessed Mother appeared in a vision

this story continues on next write 3 chapters this all held me captive

Intoxicating wordless Sound

Seeking the solace in its voice
As it sings and serenades.
Intoxicating wordless sound
Carried along on air currents,
Transforms wind to song.

Mellow notes with breathless voice
Plays like a lovers embrace.
Deep earthy sounds perceived by ear.
Romancing my heart through song,
An alluring sound from the flute.

Infinite Energy S

Get on your bike and get out of my face it smells of fish and oil on the beach this peachy day cape on my shoulders to fly away up with the seagulls I sh*t on your face Now that the body has been properly buried full of the scars from the wars do I carry I cannot believe you all find me scary I skip full of spirit for despite this I'm still merry For on this day God smiled on me gave me the sign to renew my belief and with his presence I shall achieve an eternal life filled by my infinite energy (S).

The Righteousness Of Love

Love is a wonder shared by one another it's the only reason I'm not six feet under Love in which I believe in a will to sustain I give back to life, now in dormant states of pain The power of Love may not alone be enough locked inside my dreams escape only from above higher than any human being has ever gone before I must have evolved rise above hate, great once more My Father taught me wisdom I am imprisoned no longer now an beast not of burden I am no lion, I am stronger on my shoulder sits twin dragons long awaiting the day evil forces come forth to take what Love is left, away A Hero of Love light are what the world needs angels, not demons exist where ever you believe follow your heart's direction and you shall achieve objects of affection rid of materialistic greed My bright energy has awakened to a fire never consuming the source as the flames just grow higher that is the desire of a product we call Love Fear, the counterpart what I was once made of I am slowly learning how to win when my peace is harder to sharpen so I have given my pen leave the sword has its uses I must say I believe to vanquish the evil in the minds too diseased to serve any purpose except their own selfish ones tomorrow a new day in the clarity of the sun where we two are now one and one done now does bring about a great change lit by the righteousness of Love.

Return Of Your King

Reflections of imperfections have shown me a way that I can move mountains through my power of faith even though I can't see him I know he is real through the power of prayer and a Love that I feel It's growing inside me like a flower in bloom shall I reveal my powers or is it too soon I am reading the signs through my darkness I find a reason for belief in the light of mankind that I know shall overcome the greatest of odds the Love I seek amazes me especially through the flaws because now I am inspired through the hero's that bring my throne through the darkness on which I return on as your King.

AM I SAVED

AM I SAVED?
What is detrimental? What is my choice? What is the job I must partake in the name of Jehovah? Am I saved? Do I differentiate to see more clearly, what is right vs. righteous? Do I try to adjust? Is it wrong to want more? How do I know when I am saved? What am I up against via a religious way? Do I shy away from negative statements? When it is concerning my faith, do I proclaim I am saved? I am saved because I am righteous. I am saved in a rightful mind. I am saved because of a religious path. I am saved in my belief that all things are divine. Am I saved? You are saved through the grace of God.

DEIFIC INTERFERENCE

This is the day the Lord gave.
His blessing is guiding our way.
He has manifested the extraordinaire.
He is why we live.
His intervening in human affairs has brought forth humanitarian events.
Insofar, our episodic existence augments our intelligence.

Stated to be a poetic boon, god sent for sure.
Divine intervention scribe on our scrolls, we are pathfinders to fulfill our inner core.
Life formed to live we are human beings.
Our footprints came long-ago via the Apostles and Prophets of the Lord.
Great Awakening took place and religion emerged.

No statue is limit in our theological presence.
We must keep company to our beliefs.
Therefore, a psalmist endurance becomes his or her poetic content.
We may write in prose, verse and flow, or both.
Our spirits will explore.
Our souls will be exposed.

Divine intervention is deific interference.
Interpolation defines our cause.
Wisdom sallied forth.
Pure utterance is a godsend.
We are scribes of history.
We are the writers of a holy scripture for humanity.

In The Beginning

Taunting Winter's became the seasons in life, for most of us
Various their storms have proudly brewed; running 
As fast as we can within tiny circles, we have thus so ran
Innocent precious babies; oftentimes, these little eyes
Flowing with salty tears; if in fact but a metaphor could bleed ?
It's myriad of somber moments; about as around our heart's 
Spiraling these rains; drenched aneath such pain; they say 
That two wrongs never make a right; fires which beget flames
Burning swords still melting amid, timeless hands...
Battle cries, calling unto shadows bent; falling upon stained knees.

Never So Gracious

A full moon night to my delight what is so wrong with doing what's right nothing is right after so long no use in complaining time to move on The Dream Water one day might take me away farther from the comfort of familiarity I float on my back then shut my eyes my body now sinking into ocean arms open wide Now swallow your son back to his nature when he is no longer needed to stay here the next generation are dooming themselves they need my experience to guide them through hell Why should I bother on my own, I strive through I turn my back on the thought of bothering to save you alone in this world my, is it spacious I'm finally smiling, never so gracious.

The Magik Of Love

Reflections in the mirror were getting scary I could not carry the weight of my pain it almost took my life to learn to love again for I have made a friend somewhere along my long lost way I hope that I helped him just a fraction of how he helped me maybe that single thought is what finally gave me my peace enough to release so much stolen energy Now I am not afraid to walk where the streets are hot for I thrive in Hell's kitchen where the devil stirs my pot for I now have him quiet tame I sacrificed my dragons at the alter of my name and now you are my slaves any time I need I'll call upon my superhero's to come and rescue me like my Saint Toni who swept me off that bridge and showed my how a death can be the greatest reason to live for she was the seed to grow my Eden then a man from a foreign land gave me something in myself to believe in the magik of Love.

The Vanishing

Since summer lost to fall
Winters got a grip
One solitary spark, now a firestorm
Cars lined up like smog filled rats
With terror filled eyes
Blinking lights as if hazards signaled
Sympathy
I saw the green turn to amber
Never slowed down
Never looked around
Drones are closing quick now
Hazy nights in my head
Shades of red wishing green
The warm sway in my mind as I walk
Through the pine forest
Sweet scented needles with every carpeted step
The soothing "tic tic" of red headed woodpeckers
The warm mist off lake superior, baptizing
The doe and her fawn
As they lift their heads when I walk by
Joining me in prayer

Dream Dreams And Dreamers

Sharing thoughts as dreams, while sitting amid the cafe
Watching sailboats sailing about the bay; set silvers stage...
Considering a mundanes day; truth be it for most here; this 
Valley of dust recycling redundants disarray; The Golden Gate
Rising from the blue waters and her radio's, regurgitating these
Prickling thorns presenting their pangs; outbreaks breaking news
Seven heart's burned at the stake today; a baby, floating in a cage ?
London bridge be falling down; Hitler just blew out his brains; invitro.

A Three Lock Box

Angels ascending this mountains highest peak times plateau..
In my mind as gazing about then peering deeply; penetrating
These its panoramic views trying to grasp something tangible
Within their portrayed as painted vistas; worthy as to be held
Yet my eyes open could find nothing amid her waning mirage
This paradigms pot and gold his planet, of dust made dreams.

The Volunteer, A Poem Inspired by HRH Prince George of Cambridge

'We have a future king to make,'
Said the deep, resounding voice.
'But it is not a proper fit for everyone.
For a king must know first how to obey than to command,
And to abide rather than reign.'

'And thus, I need a volunteer.'

The eager little voices swiftly gathered ‘round.
'To have a throne and my own crown,' said a little voice with delight. 
'A great palace for my home,' cried another, 'or a castle with tall ramparts.'
'I’d be above all others,' said yet another, 'that would surely ease one’s comparing mind;'
'And best of all, to be revered by everyone and through all time!'   

'Don’t fool yourselves with thrones and crowns,' said a little voice from the side,
'Do not haste into a choice you may regret for all your life!
I’d rather risk oblivion and even want, but be free to choose my fate,
What is precious life for but to discover one’s gift and thirst?
You take that crown and throne, and you forever renounce the greatest prize you own!'

There were no volunteers at hand for that grand, distinguished life.
The once lively little voices now stood silent, with cautious glances in their eyes.
Yet they began to move a little, but not to volunteer their fates; 
Someone was slowly coming forward all the way from far behind. 
Soon, one single little voice stood ahead of all the others, and with a thoughtful stare, it spoke:

'I overheard a story once
Of a vast and balmy river 
That braves across cold, stormy seas
So it can meet a fabled shore
And become one with it.

'Wearied from its long voyage, 
It crashes beneath the sheer cliffs.
And as its froth caresses the jagged rocks,
It echoes the green, velvety meadows above
Which gently cuddle the harsh precipice. 

'The wee, babe-in-arms coming king 
Will hold that fabled shore in him.
For he, though one sole man
Will stand for an entire land.
And in choosing this destiny
Of that fabled shore I also shall be,
For it will be a part of me, 
And I, humbly, of it.

'And then, there is the brave lad who in sheer fright,
Gathered all his nerve and leaped into the dark night
Over the unknown enemy’s laird.
Oh, how I would leap into the dark along with thee!
Though he is now long gone, he will live in me,
And I, humbly, in him.

'And the family who huddled deep beneath the ground
Through the terrifying shudder of the enemy’s raging rounds. 
Then, to rise again, and not concede.
I was in that shelter along with them,
And so were a million others who were yet to be!

'Such as the young boy now walking to school on a quiet country lane,
To learn his Scott, his Shakespeare, his Milton, and his Keats.
I will follow him close behind, and my own feet shall grow within his footprints.
It takes no less than each of them to make a king, 
And not more than lacking one to lessen him.
For a king, though one sole self, stands for all, 
And all do stand for him.

'I know that in choosing this path, 
I’ll forever relinquish command of my compass, 
And may never find out what I could’ve become on my own, 
Or what my true talent may be.
I will follow, instead, a course that has long been set,
By others, and not by me.

'But I have a strong hunch 
That if I don’t put myself first,
Or what I feel I’m entitled to do and to have,
And choose, instead, to be fair, as best as I possibly can, 
To those for whom I’ll be honored to stand,
I’ll eventually know who I really am; 
And will meet, one day, the man I am meant to become.'

'Thus, I volunteer 
To be the child who’s one day to be king.'

A newborn day blazed in the distance,
And a transformation was about to take place, 
As momentous as the invasion of spring,
The rising of the harvest, or a mighty winter gale.
Nearly two thousand babies were coming to life on that land, 
From that land, to that land, for that land, 
And a single one amongst them exalted all. 

Half a world away, a vast and balmy river 
Was setting out on its long voyage to a fabled shore,
And nearby, radiant sunlight battled gray, stormy clouds,
So as to break through and paint in brilliant and broad brushstrokes
The lofty Highlands below,
And thus, be reborn as shimmering glens and moors.

The Sands Of Time

We live in this place this world
This age it's time, wherein ebbs as flows
Rights and wrongs, are poured sometimes pounded
Into our eyes; far too expanse be they to itemize...
These twisted lies or perhaps, anothers disguise ?
Sin, is a multi-coloured hat worn amid ironics
Assembling dance and sway; Love, is the only thing
Beyound all things, that I know to be pure as absolutely true.

Affliction

The darkness of light impossible to see the pain and the lies always damaging you reach and get burned not understanding this is my disease nature of the beast Suddenly my light is taken away my darkness was revealed taking me as slave when all I ever wanted was for someone to say please stop, for me or enter an early grave Now face to face with all of my demons how can I fight them if I don't want to beat them until the reason arrives, then I shine a little at first but that small thing, is mine The den of ten thieves come up with a plan a whole set of new lies that every single man cannot resist believing it's seeming to be that a horrific ending is just what I need Then all of the sudden my small shine swallows time and with that virtue my face comes to life I would never hurt you please, know this to be yet no one believes me this curse grows like a tree I hate my helpless fate why can't I make a new life for me that no one can take why can't I escape a prison not for me for years I accept this tired sense of defeat The small shine barely intact, inside until Saint Anger starts to burn me, alive I find I'm set off by my wrong, senseless self until I am talking to no one, in Hell So I pick up my pen power to create a new world for me where I design my escape in my invisible state the Devil don't notice that one of his children is no longer hopeless I stop all my madness by power of pen for years my sword drew nothing but sin the yin and the yang both helped me to find that I'm no longer afflicted when darkness lights my bright shine.

The Angels Of Salem

At first she didn't understand, it was all new unto her innocent beauty..

A Portal Unto The Sun

My soul is among lions
I lie among the sons of 
Men who are set on fire.” 
Dramatica; expect the worst 
And hope for the best 
Is what some say ? 
In life and breath and love and death
Portents.. 
Stopping in front of the Azteca's 
Theatre admiring the lovely 
Mannequin girl adorned as a communal 
Daughter with long flowing hair and beads 
Her many colours; sitting amid the tickets booth 
Draped aneath cobwebs smiling and speaking 
Unto my spirit in hues of yesteryears arrays 
These, pantheon coronations... 
Red double doors with circular windows trimmed in black
Conversing an entrance to cross through its beckoning ?
A schizophrenic passing by again; this, a portal unto the sun.

THE SPIRIT OF A SLAVE

      Where did all those black people go in Black History such as W.E.B Dubois, 
George Washington Carver, Sojourner Truth,and many more that came before.
      Why have their families disappear?
When you search their genealogy, their surnames are found.
      Were their families wiped-out?
I am speaking on today.
      These people paved a way out no way.

[NEGRO SPIRITUAL - THE SPIRIT OF A SLAVE]

      These old bones of mine stir in the grave.
I was a freedom fighter in my days.
      Great I did do for the slaves even when their life in this country had been made.
We wanted a better living a holistic way.
      Our troubles where many; we saw through the white man eyes or ways.
Old bones of mine became tired and disengaged.

      Where is my family now?
Where did they go?
      My spirit roams to find my kinfolks.
Our surname is no more.

      My soul was baptized in the Mississippi.
I was raised from the river saved.
      No sin was present and I lived right.
When I knew my time had come, I closed my eyes.
      In those days, doctors were few in saving the life of a slave.
The pain was so great I knew I was gone.
      But by the grace of God my life went on.
Ten years later, I was summoned home.

      My people are no more.
Where did my people go?
      I see our house yonder.
Our surname is not in existence any more.

      The spirit of a slave
The soul afire
      Roams the world in the sweet by and by
He shouts, "Still I Rise!"

Better Than Jesus

Explosions in the sky a fire in my mind starting out a broken spirit until returned, my wings, I fly and I find that I have no place to go when the desire has came and went and there is no secrets left to know I shall be the greatest teacher exponentially now I grow who wants to be my friend? I only accept good people for I have spent too much time observing dark and evil now I seek the light as I remember how to fly off I'll go to see the world with my soul mate, her and I I have not met her yet but I will know her when I see her by the feeling and the healing as if she could be the teacher and my heart is pounding celebrating life until I die when my friend, this world may end by explosions in the sky. -For Sandra

Hey Fiddle Fiddle

He fiddled 
with his foreskin,
pulling the taunts over

The tip of his nose,
it still stung, from when
Gary Mother****in' Jackson
(a strapping lad who insisted
this should have been his middle
name, after taking up a pool
job one summer)

Had pushed him, rather
abruptly into the bushes,
and those branches

Feeling like hands, poked
and prodded into the depth's
of his skin and he'd walked 

Through that day, red and 
welty, like an overgrown zit.

In Pride And Ignorance

Spiritual vista's and your going to learn, how to bow...
Thinking unto myself, they are not yet worthy of such
Love nor it's kiss; tripping across a spectrum coloured
Mostly from gray to black saying so paint as portray ?
Your own dark heart of fusions ancient stuck atop this
Ever mangled melting track; peerings, translucent tears.

Johnnie Ryde

Switchfoot's, I dare you to move ?
Shunned by societies carved these
Centuries a belief offering oppressions
Plundered through fables of fairyless 
Tales in tears as molten gold melded...
An idol to fulfill their heart's a god 
Or goddess that they could call their
Very own and irony waiting within
The wings of trial this metal bowing 
Unto statues serving merciless altars
Whileas truth continued its wayward
Trek atop the paths towards colder
Binding hopes these dreams left bound 
Amid twisted chains to bury love's light...
Judgment bleeding; ignorance arrogance 
Hate death life flesh spirit, hells deceit ¿
You me cauldrons revelations fiery scenes.

MARVELOUS

MARVELOUS

Obstacles, stumbling blocks, mountains to climb, bridges to cross, many times we don’t.  With God’s help, we focus and pray that we achieve never giving up because the Lord has promised us the victory.

In God’s speed is my destiny! I must believe in a power greater than myself.
I stand on my mountains and The Word states: “Look to the hills for your health” crossing my bridges within the Lord’s intellect.

Gathering God’s protective armor in which I stand for righteousness.  I project the conquering of many souls though my evangelistic journey.  All is in the name of Jehovah.

In God’s speed is my spirit in which I must believe in a power greater than my existence; kicking my stumbling blocks, as I look to hills for my help!  Obstacles are no more and The Lord’s eyesight adores, as I worship The Almighty God.

In time, I will have acquired a Buddha presence.  And people all over the world will have seen The Almighty God – The Lord – Jehovah.  Mankind will be more refined for the second coming of Jehovah God Lord’s son – Jesus Christ Lord - who died for all of us {ACTS 20:21}.  So let’s join together as a universe in the magnificent.  The eyes of Jehovah God Lord are upon us and his son – Jesus Christ Lord’s – spirit is with us knowing:

This is quite marvelous.

[“But he [or she] that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Matthew 24:13).]

Joy To The World

Wet sidewalks and colouful leaves
Tuning out the crowds as volume
Chitter chatter pitter patter; gray
The late autumn's drizzling clouds
Tales cold northern rains; pictures
Ascending timeless steps in frozen 
State's; never having truly existed
A skeletals key amid, love's hands
Another shouting with a thousand 
Voices from this street their truths
Stepping unto divinities threshold
Beyound its passage where awaits
Destiny's realm these faithful hues.

PRAISE THE LORD

Get your house in order.
Get your life right.
Repent from your sins.
Magnify humanity to a point of surrender of all perils.
You are only your savior.

Survival is your essence.
Strength weakens the evil that possess.
Give your burdens to the omnipotent and praise his presence.
Shout hallelujah when you feel the need.
You are seeing your spirit aglow.
Know that you are the master of your soul.

Clap your hands giving yourself an encore.
You know that you are specter shown.
Stomp when the spirit enters.
Your presence is wraith of the known God.
Remunerate and worship
Reflect and shout
This is your house in order.

Tell the world you been saved from your evil ways.
Share your vision as your mission unto God.
You are a crusader in a cause.
Your house is now in order because you praised the Lord.

Shout Hallelujah Amen!

Unable to grasp anything concrete thus bound amid disarray.

Comfort Zone

Oh wandering soul, when will you cease
When will your seeking be sated
Or will you be fated to roam
From home to empty home
To wind up alone
Will you one day catch the dancing breeze
And will your fleeting heart flee
To that safest of havens
Where your free to just be
And in that place shall you find
That peace thats so hard to find
May you calm your racing mind
And in a moment of  suspended time
Enjoy the  glorious bliss 
Oh wandering soul
Of all that you missed.

PRISON HEART

I’m lost in an unknown world where I am not a stranger
Citizen of love recognize and value by all
People adore my knowledge about my country
As several relationships has been fabricate and re-established
‘Master of love’ I was called
All these is claim until I met her
She is the perfection of beauty
Angel amidst humanity
Her skin tone complements my dark complexion
Her hair kiss ass
Her dove eyes laid in between her pointed noise harmonized with long face and 
double dimple
Her breast flow the ocean of life in fulfillment of the holy book
She is supernaturally endowed below
Dream of living in her palace below and drink from milk of life above  
I call her End of discussion
She is my desire yet confused of certainty
My heart fails not to confront with golden words
I’m scared of response
I’m not scared of No but Yes
Presently in the net of two relationship in the name of love
My golden word for her shall be never to cheat on her
Previous word contradict contemporary words for her
Confused heart, let go of previous love and regain my country?

what I wouldn't want to relive

I wouldn't want to relive the birds
that fed the drugs down my throat
as I few across the  heavens looking
for more fun in my life. I would never
want to be the old man walking the
streets looking for any old box to 
sleep in that night. I would never
want to be in love again with my
torn heart sinking at the depths of
the sea.

Ye olde Hogs head

Welcome to the Hogs head
The local ye olde pub
The ale tastes like urine
And there's maggots 
In the grub.

There's straw on the floor
A pee bucket by the door
And rats scurry in groups of ten or more.

The busty wenches serve the ale
And over the centuries
There's been spoken
Many a tale
Gossip soon gets far
Tankards flow with ale.

There by the fireside
Is a secret door where
Dick Turpin often hides.

Over by the bar is Robin Hood
And his merry men
Their very merry 
And drunk again.

The place is a den of iniquity
Pickpockets and theif's
You can always get a 
Stolen purse
or sheep real cheap before you leave.

The regular drinkers often burst into song
In a drunken stuper their often out of tune
And the words come out wrong.

The place is really smelly
And you have to watch your step you do
Just in case you step on and get pig poo on your shoe.

The place never closes
And all the posh folk
Turn up their noses
at such a hovel.

But your always welcome
Why not come on down
And give it a go
Or you'll never know.

In god we trust your money make your life bless for best. Pay why when die heaven give no money life. Said of game now dont take da words an miss name da fame. smh. Cause this world is vein, so i bleed outside to water my mainstream of heart filled out the box of art. A gift is but live so a gift is what give. Present I wake no mistake to my take of day, now I play a one way ticket of gold with sweet palace like chocolate for da kids an family. Can't stand it, well dat make manish no planish; know how to stand it. Nerves get on some badish. Then handle all debts publick an private no childish just so wildish. Judge me not 4 i break only da law of da land with out a sight of the man. Then I walk out this cell knowing every step I take is hell to heaven.
amen

Where are you

  
I have looked for you in every church, temple, and mosque,
but you were nowhere to be found. Where are you? 
People praise your name, and pray to you in times of need. 
You never answer, are you dead? or sleeping? 
Please, tell me where you are so that I can find you, 
wrap my arms around you and never let go. 
You are all we need and all we have ever needed. 
Where are you? My God.  

~My child, I am with you. I have always been with you since the beginning
 and I will be with you until the very end. I have never left you, but you will
 never find me in a structure of wood and concrete. I am under every stone, 
under every tree and in everything you see around you. 
Just because you call to me does not mean that I do not hear you. 
I will always be there when I am needed in the end to show my mercy upon 
those who are sick and dying to release them from their pain and to give them 
everlasting life free of pain and suffering in the Kingdom of Heaven.~
 
                                                                                               -Zachariah Field

American Graffiti

Iniquities vertical archways 
Traversing twilights retro
Drafted abysmal shadows
Aneath the roses bush...
Coloured acrylic murals 
Acidics transcending 
Medievils vague ambulant 
Abstract mystique ?
Embellished cerium 
Charcoals as that of gothics 
In vitro; masque'd
Achromatic architectural 
Envisioned designs...
Gomorrah's holistic 
Gargoyles; a black plagues 
Overture amid, Nefarious
Nepenthes, garden of her eden.

A Little Bit Of Positive

I wanna kick it with a positive spin
Who me?? I know, now where to begin
deliverin' the positive with a **** eating grin
so just sit back, relax and hit it again

I just wanna spread a smile to illuminate my soul
To spread my love and positivity is my new, improved role
The golden rule stands true and karma brings a heavy toll
to appreciate lifes beauty should be an everlasting goal

It should at least be on your mind
'cause you may, one day, look back and find
as everything in life has changed, you've been left behind
So take in everything you can and try your best to remain kind

Maybe you'll plant a seed that will grow within a brain
A seed that grows into a thought, a thought to go against the grain
To spread the love and joy even when there's nothing there to gain
You can always be a comfort, someones umbrella in the rain

So I'll change it up a bit from the words that I've been sharin'
Take a little time to show the world I'm still carin'
And I hope you take these word like I'm challengin' or darin'
You to spread youre happiness while the world keeps repairin'

It's Not A Cult

It's not a cult:
It's a Savior saving my life.
It's a Savior saving your life.
It's our Savior saving our lives.
It's not too late.
It's never too late!

Worship

The sea flowing
In low speed
Into the open ocean
That never gets drunk
Or satiated drinking 
The natural salt.

The sea dancing
In undulating meander
To unheard numbers
With varying emotions

Hot when angered
Sinking high tech ships
To drown life vested crew.

Cool when pleased
Allowing a vulnerable canoe
To row with ease
Sparing its helpless paddler.

See the sea
Breathing the sea breezes
To soothe the atmosphere.
They say it had been
Even before our births.

Carrying the glory
Of the sun
And moon daily and nightly
Respectively

How it stands glorious 
Enough for a deity.
Yet that would
Incur for men,
The wrath of Jealous.

New Me

I've been down so long like my life was on pause,
Now I'm ready to chomp it, guess you can call me jaws,

When you think nothing but the negative that's what you're gonna get,
Now I'm motivated, concentrated, guess my fuse was just lit,

It's a day to day struggle but i won't lose anymore,
I've burned my share of bridges now I'm openin' doors,

I've known my share of loss but it doesn't help to complain,
positivity's my narcotic now and it's killin' the pain,

So I'll work my hands to the bones until I've reached the top,
And now there's nothin' life can throw at me to convince me to stop,

You can try and talk down to me but i won't hear what you say,
I know you're lonely at the bottom but you can't convince me to stay,

My mind is takin' full control from a bruised and broken heart,
And now it's built me up stronger, there's no way I'll fall apart,

So keep your distance from me if you're carryin negative thoughts,
Cause I've written books of negativity but now I'm changin' the plots.

Love For Sale

In the slight of hand at the dead of night will stand
Hoping someday soon all will live to understand
The heart that will beat the tone of the feet
Love for sale

We ask for more yet for what?

In the passage of time their lies hurdles

the storm is raging on

The storm
Raving hear and rolling there
Grinning and half-smiling in rumblings
then it bursts out in violent assaults
Spurring the tails of the wind
Wild gestures of the tempest
Then the roar and blast of thunder
Followed by the sjambok of lightning
Triggering the torrents of moods
Gloomy cloudy pathos laden nimbus
Sadness and depression flow in galleys of time
And a man is left alone in the pathway of wonderment

Truth Begins at the Corner

Remember to always make sure to bless the days that you are given, because they are few, and beauty only lasts so long! 
Hold tight my fair wonderer, your day will come. I will be with you again.
The lost soul of your childhood still roams the crevices of your forgotten past. 
The unrestrained faith in the wonders of the woods, the vastness of the cosmos, and the darkness of the night still lingers beneath the rough waters of maturity and age. 
Come with me again my friend and lose yourself in the joy of the unknown, the unplanned, and the chaos of a life on fire! I can take you there, if only you let go! 
Be with me, take part of me with you, and feel the self that we are. Perfect in spoiled admiration of instincts lost since the time I awoke without you.
The id consumes you with a savage passion, while the ego ever so gently licks the tears from your wounded breast. 
My mind strives to unbutton the layers of worldly impurities until I reach your core. Pure as the first light we accepted into our virginal eyes. 
Wrapped in body and blindness, our forms ached as we accepted this gift. As we unfolded into light, a passionate awakening of nature stirs the breath and frightens the senses, the initiation of spirit begins. 
I long to stay. The only I there is in this ephemeral abyss. I loathe all blessings bestowed upon my eye, but the light penetrates with ruthless contempt for all we have created, harshly illuminating the disparities of night and day, nature and nurture, love and death, you and I. 
I curse the light, and in desperation implore for the beginning to come to an end. For now I see you, and now I know…...you never were.

Reflections

The way a rose would wilt

The depths of a search gone astray
This much I do pray
When its all said and done just give me Jesus
When the rules tend to be no fun

The light hurts at times stunned as in frozen with time
I'm blind in a mess that would loosen this rhyme
Kenny G playing nice in the back ground at the airport
An unusual request to leave behind the mess

Here I must confess;
Shattered fragments on the patio floor
Onto something yet so much more,
A rose stands out still as a memory for two

Shattered glass we will pass the way before
Let us seek to even the score
We lay awake at night still frantic as ever before,
In our thoughts still with a glimpse of laughter

The marble on the tile floor
Cobwebs surround us now as in an illusion caught in time
Broke and all alone down to my last thin dime
Yet with time a typical rhyme may rise

Beneath the garb of compromise from all its twisted lies
We look again to see our reflection in the pool of water
It cries out to touch the emblem of self yet
With a cry it will tear back an emotion with a shrug

Alone again with a sorrowful friend
Pick up the pieces from within

Gorilla Piano

  'I shall will' says the Proclaimed Self
when you know
it most certainly
won't

  'Forever' swear the lovers
before they weary of each other
and pass with
sideways
eye

maybe there will be some
other times
looping mirrors reflecting
themselves
speeding light spread
ever along
the fire's fulgurate throat

stroking a woman's lovely
shudder.  a room in Rome.
like Krishna
riding high
distinctly
satisfied

shadows within the 
shade
the elephants may
parade
But, never,
no never
will they ever
clear the
stage

You Touched My Heart

You Touched My Heart

The Love you gave to me,
It lights me like the Angel rays,
As the winds breeze across the heavens,
As the trees sway forth in the breeze.

Answering questions within my heart,
Unconfusing my humble mind,
Yet you speak your words aloud,
It seemes I am no longer blinded.

The answers all came flooding in,
As you touche my heart with your hand,
The knowledge that you give to me
Within my LIFE I shear to all.

I understand that the events in my LIFE
That troubled me this far are nothing,
As they are nothing to be frightened of,
As you said, I am born unto you, Lord.

I thank you Lord very graciously,
As I speak Your words aloud,
I will shear the love You've given me,
You have made me feel at peace.

As I now know why I am loved,
Thank you Lord for all You have done.

I Still Need the Fear

Fear brings me near
To those things
You cannot explain.
Why need an 
explanation
anyway?
Explanations
only complicate.
Just give me some
dollar bills,
and I'll turn some
water into wine.
Not the same old
cheap thrills.
Such a shame,
you crossed the line.
So blind.
Riding the pine of life
like Barney Fife.

Observations 4 Childhood Retrospect

I always had questions
Not many people had answers
I was never moved by childish banter
Yeah I'm the kid that debunked Santa
Rudolph, Dancer and their magical antlers
I've seen the corruption in churches
& weakness in blind faith
I'm taking religion to court
I know I got a case
I lied to the minister, after being dipped in the water
And just wanted to go to church to see various members daughters
I knew right from wrong before I knew Jesus
Then they say that's what he's trying to teach us
Well I was doing just fine, plus made straight A's
Cool as the Fonz in my happy days
But life is more like a re-run & that's not what's happening

Take Control

Liquid Fire lights my desire to be destroyed. My conflagration has just begun, and my frustration is building. I… can’t trust myself around the water. I… can’t lose myself in the fires. The frustration is building and my rage it starts to g...row. Venom reach the soul and make me lose control. I want to Burn to death in the Darkness, I want The Shadows to take control. don’t never let go… I am walking now and I wont stop till the Toxin leaves me. I am The Shadow Prince, antidote take my callus neck, brake my head and choke me… I just want the Flames to rise into my head and I just want the pain to stop from spreading. The poison oak can take a bloke and make him croak. The bane is vain so take my chain and peacefully make me insane. I am a super villain, and I will conquer the world. If only I could take control, If only I could take control. I will build an army, take control just take control. I will take control, and I will conquer the world.

Scratching scraping bleeding panes...
