Love arrived in Autumn like a Spring breeze,
Out of its time and out of its season,
Its dancing spirits left me ill at ease,
And the dark shadows, taunted my reason.
The green leaves that were my days before you,
Have drifted and faded and are no more.
The naive moments of white clouds on blue,
Have become remains on the forest floor.
The light and gentle glory was divine.
There was even a glimpse of forever,
But that which I was lent is never mine,
We only borrowed the time together.
I have heard the loveliness in a song,
And tasted the exquisite fruits and fare,
But the prize that is stolen feels wrong,
And the promise of joy becomes despair.
Love lets us believe in eternity,
Like a white bird flying across the sky,
Forever is until you discard me,
Chasing another golden butterfly.
I looked out my sad window on a good lethargic day.
There was a sparrow that asked nothing of me.
I threw bread crumbs at it and it flew away.
It waited in the safety of an aspen tree.
After some time I noticed that the bread crumbs were gone.
I looked out the front door that afternoon,
At my boyfriend, who I hate, now and forever,
I threw dollars at him because he sang a tune,
And we laughed at the changing of the weather.
After some time I noticed all my money was gone.
I looked into my cell phone that evening,
At my girlfriend, who I despise, with a vengeance,
I threw words at her as I was drowning,
Because she said she was sleeping with my fiancé.
After a few hours I noticed that all my tears were gone.
I pray now for the Sparrow to return.
A gentle bird that asked nothing of me,
Except the right to live.
I need to embrace that gentleness,
For I have nothing else to give.
Who is this man who has come into my life
Where did he come from?
Why is he here?
Looking into his gentle face I see a light a love and grace
His hands touch me and reach into my soul
His voice is reassuring, yet still I do not know.
Who is this man who has come into my life
Where did he come from?
Why is he here?
Candle lit rooms, soft music, sweet words, touching from the heart,
Feeling things I have never felt before,
Frighten when he walks out the door.
Who is this man who has come into my life?
Where did he come from?
Why is he here?
Passion, touching speaking words of love, kissing and moving closer.
Making love sounds that can not be spoken, yet for a moment, yet forever.
A joining, caressing, feeling whole again.
Who is this man who has come into my life?
Where did he come from?
Why is he here?
Only time will reveal the purpose and the plans of this union with this
man for good or for bad I do not know, but for this time I will stop
to enjoy him.
Now's the time to say good-bye...
And, no, I won't miss you,
And, No, I won't cry.
I've gotta move on, get outta this place,
I'm sick of your "stuff", tired of your face.
Once upon a time, our hearts were both pure,
But now, you're my nightmare,
And I'm just your whore.
Laughter and love no longer remain,
I know if I stay here you'll drive me insane,
With your goddamn attitude, your late night alibi's
All of your promises that turned into lies...
So I hesitate before I reach the door,
And take a look around once more.
You're staring at me with sadness in your eyes,
I know you too well, baby, it's just a disguise.
Now's the time to say good-bye...
And, YES, I will miss you,
And, YES, I will cry.
My face is distorted
Is my real face even showing?
I don't know if I'm experiencing my true feelings
My love is true is yours?
I demand you and you shut the door in my face repeatedly
We have many years together and yet we have nothing
Our children see the real you
The real person I have seen since day one
I can't believe you let your love for society get in the way of my innocents
How dare you?
I have to be everything to them and it's not fair to them
They will grow up knowing I was the only consistency in their wee lives
Where is the outline for me?
Do you hear my screams? What about the silent ones?
I go without so much because my wee little ones need more than I
What do you go without?
I look in the mirror at myself
Who is looking back at me?
Is this really me? Is this really my life?
I stood by you through so much
The things you did the things you said to me
You have hurt me like no other has and yet I'm still here are you?
Emotionally I'm not here, My heart stays here, But I can't figure out where my mind is
Or where it all belongs?
I'm so torn, so broken, so numb
I guess I'm just going to be distorted for the rest of my time with you
I promised I would love you through everything and I have but where is the outline?
I don't see the real me and haven't in a long time thanks to you
I don't even do my hobbies anymore I just sit and watch the world as I call life pass by
Why do you want our wee little innocents to see this? what would posses you to?
If I broke my promise would I be submitted to the pits for enternity?
I gained so much and yet I lost more much
You hurt me with life itself and nothing but fear
Can you honestly tell me what have you lost you entire life?
It feels like a band-aid that I just can't take off no matter how I rip it off
Do I wear a mask over me? Does anyone see the real me anymore?
I hurt so much with you but yet I loved you for so long
I can't accept your I'm sorry pity excuses anymore
Is my face nothing to you? Does it mean nothing to you?
My heart feels so much anger, depression, emotions of not being wanted
Do you or have you ever felt this way?
I don't know what to believe in anymore
I feel like paper and I'm being torn into a million pieces
Or what if you are putting me through a paper shredder?
Is the real me even showing?
The modern generation
Is coming all the way
To colonize the old one to get it’s accommodation
It’s encouraging many people
To welcome it’s arrival
But once it’s welcomed
There is no survival
It’s taking away many people especially teenagers
With very simple measures
It’s attracting the south pole and the north pole
By giving them someone to go for
And that’s why people are dying in fours;
A girl, a boy, and a pair of two models
The models of the two
The models who showed the two what to do in their clue
At different times they were born
But at the same time they are gone
Take a look at the boys of today on the way
They pull the short down as if the shorts overweigh
They wear huge hats which are so wide
And turn them around to balance the head on the other side
Isn’t it too heavy to crash the brain
Isn’t it too heavy to use up the digested grain
Ah! Your parent s must have been tired of feeding you advise
They must have been tired of being kind and nice
They are just waiting for the time when the white clouds will become grey
And rain will fell from their eyes on this day
They will just worry and burry you in a day
And forget about you because you made them loose their hope
They are tired of having commas
This time they have a full stop
It’s funny how my father’s hobby became mine. He has been a sportsman all his life, he played basketball, volleyball and softball all his youth, but his real passion is soccer and even though he is 55 years old now, he still keeps playing it and loving it. He has had all kinds of cleats, all brands, all colors, different styles, but it does not change anything, he still plays amazing. But one thing I do find hilarious is that every time he comes from a game, he cleans his cleats, he washes them and takes them with such an unbelievable affection, that I’m beginning to think that he might love them more than he loves me, but now I do know the feeling of a new shiny, hard and beautiful pair of cleats. I still recall when he took me for my very first pair, I could not believe he was doing it for me, I was so excited, but now I realize that what I was excited about is that I could be like my father for just a moment when I had them on. Ever since I was little, I remember my daddy playing soccer, leaving home all dressed up, ready to fight, and win the ball to make a remarkable roll on the field. The playing field that we both love, the field all covered in grass, all green, so delicious and soft, so colorful… being crashed by everyone’s cleats and the rolling ball, feeling the sunlight on our skin, and the wind on our faces. Having a team, an extra family with whom we could find support and create new ideas, new plays so we could smash the opponent. So yes, I loved watching him play and cheering him up more than I could ever like watching official and famous soccer teams. I do find funny the fact that my father’s hobby became mine since everyone says we’re too similar, and even though he also has a son, his daughter is with whom he shares that connection. I love the fact that our simple relationship was started thanks to such a manly sport, and curiously, to transform me into such a girly girl.
MARRIAGE SEX AND ROMANCE
“Some other time, I’m not in the mood
Why cant we just cuddle and watch TV”?
When couples drift into the celibate zone
It’s not long till someone will flee.
Sexual fulfillment helps preserve love,
Parenthood, marriage and self-esteem.
Those who maintain it avoid saying no
To be blessed by its pleasure and gleam.
While dating we tend to be more romantic
Putting forth the best of our charms.
Sharing dinners, long walks, and lustful weekends
As we spend more time in each others arms.
How many times have you said “not tonight”?
Exposing your happy home to harm.
Today’s crushing deadlines leave little time for love
Leaving partners with sorrow, sadness and alarm.
So share one another with red wine and time
Dial your own number and leave the phone off the hook.
Enjoy some romance, sex and laughter
Improving your mood and the way you look.
By Tom Zart
All was going well until she asked for a drink
Then my stomach started to sink
She ask “do you have coffee?”
“no it’s OCD”
Stood up, turned 80 degrees
Counted my steps, ones and threes
Get the scales and measure the grains
In nerves, must not make any stains
Add the milk, not too much
Now the sugar, just a light touch
Click the kettle, watch my watch
If she was Irish, I could always add scotch
Click! Pour the water
63 mm size always matters
A quick stir, a wee bit slower
Too high make it lower
Turn clockwise, go for the door
Marching like in the marine corps
There she is lying in a heap
I was hours, she’s fast asleep
To my valentine: though I am may not believe in the notion of dedicating one day to our love
I celebrate you each day. Let today be our Valentine and tomorrow be the eve of the celebration
Of our next day together. Let’s make a holiday of each morning and celebrate each afternoon so that we can embrace each night together. Let us mock the world by wearing a smile on our faces each time we speak, think and even dream of each other. I Wish to give you the world but let me conquer it first and sail with you to the moon for a Sunday picnic and then to the stars for the night just so we can clearly see the glory of the reflection of the light of the sun in your eyes in the morning.
I am crying as I write each word knowing how great I am failing to manifest the magnitude of your beauty in words so please accept my humble attempt. I wish I could give you FLOWERS for they resemble the sweet smell of your skin and also the timeless beauty you possess but they die too quickly in the eternal world that is ruled by your smile. Perhaps I should give you CHOCLATES that taste as good as your lips and fill my soul with tranquillity and the illusive satisfaction that am among the clouds after every kiss. But even chocolates end and leave behind the torment of addictive cravings. Let me give offer you my Mind that continues to wonder as it ponders in the thought of the endless beauty that has nothing to do with how you look. And my Heart that beats each pound to the sound of the divine melodies that sing aloud each time you speak. And also my soul that remains ever in a trance of admiration and disbelieve that my being could ever be so lucky to have you as my own. So lets make each moment as great as this and celebrate it with a smile seal it with a kiss to open it when we meet again to dwell in the glory of our love.
You are the reason for every drop of my tear
And you cannot leave me alone here
I said a million times that I love you
Every time you rejected
Every time I left with few millions of tears
You can just see this eyes, every time with a smiling face in-front of you
But I cannot stop this heart's bleeding
You feel every thing is alright with me
And you never tried to listen my heart's pain
I truly love you and adore you
And sometimes I feel , my life is over and I will die for you
Don't know what to do?
But I am really stuck at you
Everyday I sit alone in the dark
Ask myself , why I love her?
Years gone, but I didn't find the answer
I cannot say how much I feel the pain in this broken heart
And I don't want to hurt you by my personal thoughts
But still I said many times with this eyes to you
How much I love you
And How important are you
Oh my Love! Please try to read my heart's page
Then you can find many broken words , red in colour
Still trying to say
''I LOVE YOU''
As I lay my hand on my womb
I realize you will be here soon!
My pains come on quick and I could feel your patience
Like a butterfly coming out of a cacoon
my dear you arrived very soon!
You looked up at me with your beautiful big blue eyes
and I could feel the rays of love beaming from your eyes!
You were my pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow..
The first day I seen you walk my heart beamed with pride..
The first time you talked I cried tears of joy!
When you graduated from kindergarten I realized that day
you could be anything you wanted to be!
As time has passed each and every achievement you have ever achieved
has been my pot of gold..
My little angel sent from above..
Now as I lay you down below the ground...
My tears fall and I wonder how this could be?
This was not suppose to happen to me...
As I lay my hands on my womb
I think back to the moment you arrived with those big baby blue eyes..
Just a second in time you were here
But the lord says have no fear
An angel i let you borrow and a angel in time, my dear child she was always mine...
If Tomorrow Starts Without Me,
And I'm Not There To See,
If The Sun Should Rise And Find Your Eyes
All Filled With Tears For Me;
I Wish So Much You Wouldn't Cry
The Way You Did Today,
While Thinking of The Many Things,
We Didn't Get To Say.
I Know How Much You Love Me
As Much As I Love You
And Each Time That You Think of Me,
I Know You'll Miss Me Too.
But When Tomorrow Starts Without Me,
Please Try To Understand,
That An Angel Came And Called My Name,
And Took Me By The Hand,
And Said My Place Was Ready,
In Heaven Far Above,
And That I'd Have To Leave Behind
All Those I Dearly Love.
But As I Turned To Walk Away,
A Tear Fell From My Eye,
For All My Life, I'd Always Thought,
I Didn't Want To Die.
I Had So Much To Live For,
So Much Left Yet To Do,
It Seemed Almost Impossible,
That I Was Leaving You.
I Thought of All The Yesterdays,
The Good Ones And The Bad;
I Thought of All That We Shared,
And All The Fun We Had.
If I Could Relive Yesterday,
Just Even For A While,
I'd Say Goodbye And Kiss You
And Maybe See You Smile.
But Then I Fully Realized,
That This Could Never Be,
For Emptiness And Memories,
Would Take The Place of Me.
And When I Thought of Worldly Things,
I Might Miss Come Tomorrow,
I Thought of You, And When I Did,
My Heart Was Filled With Sorrow.
But When I Walked Through Heaven's Gates,
I Felt So Much At Home,
When God Looked Down And Smiled At Me,
From His Great Golden Throne,
He Said, "This Is Eternity,
And All I've Promised You."
Today Your Life On Earth Is Past,
But Here Life Starts A New.
I Promise No Tomorrow,
But Today Will Always Last,
And Since Each Day Is The Same Way,
There's No Longing For The Past.
You Have Been So Faithful,
So Trusting And So True,
Though There Were Times You Did Some Things,
You Knew You Shouldn't Do.
But You Have Been Forgiven,
And Now At Last You're Free.
So Won't You Come And Take My Hand,
And Share Your Life With Me?
So When Tomorrow Starts Without Me,
Don't Think We're Far Apart,
For Every Time You Think of Me,
I'm Right Here, In Your Heart.
The year that is about to make its last appearance
before it dies and is buried to be only given a place
in the history of our existence has brought ?e joy,
l° shall therefore, out of obligation rather than
leisure acknowledge its fairness and generosity. It
began on a high as l° aimed to make it through the
Bar exams and to be successfully called to the
Nigerian Bar. This singular goal, controlled all
others and made them seem less important. In the
end, the story ended greatly, we all do love happy
endings, l° am a Barrister and Solicitor of the
Supreme Court of Nigeria. To God be the glory.
Yet, the most important aspect of the year wasn't
the fact that l° became a Barrister, rather, it is the
fact that through the demanding and rough
journey of reaching and achieving that goal, along
came people of great personality, people l° knew
had the character to spur you on and literally uplift
you both psychologically and in every other positive
way possible. For the first time in my life, l° was
opened to the richness of the earth's diversity, both
in religion as well as in culture. l° even spoke new
languages and danced to new tunes. l° was given a
new eyes, l° did see the world from another
perspective, it was thrilling and l° came to see the
blessing in the cultural and ethnic differences. But,
the crux of the essay being friendship.
The year 2012, gave ?e the most supportive,
reliable and cheerful individuals to work and also
relax with. These people not withstanding their
different social, religious and academic background
did with ease find a common ground and built a
strong fold for friendship. There were moments no
doubt during the year when it would have been
quite impossible to move ahead without the
support and undying motivation of these
individuals, as l° do stand at this bridge, about to
cross to the other end of the journey, l° would take
a few minutes to say a very hearty thank you to all
of you. From my parents, without whom there will
be no Barrister attached to my name, words fail
?e. l° do say a big thank you. To my siblings who
went out of their own financial obligations to
support ?e through the difficult but productive
year, l° am ever indebted to all of you jointly and
severally. For a friend like no other, master
Chinasa Orji, let your heart desires become reality
unto you bro and the same gratitude goes to the
entire Orji family. l° will now try as much as l° can,
to mention a few of those whose friendship,
alleviated the burden of the journey through 2012,
and l° say the list is not quite chronological, l° just
add to it as l° do remember, these persons include
but not restricted to:
1. Mazi Ezegamba Esq.
2. Mr. Frank Somto Esq. (Ajo anu)

bring us more reasons to celebrate, love and
Do have a great NEW YEAR.

The moon light brightens up the night
With all its strength and all its might
Nights so dark but moon so bright
It glows upon my house just right
When its at its peak of height
Thats when it is at its purest white
It is such a gorgeous sight
A sight to see
Just for me
Always got me wondering
I wonder about outer space
And how its such a beautiful place
Has so much history
Yet still a mystery
So much to explore
I want to learn more and more
Want to get down to its core
I think about this at four
Four a.m. and I see the moon
As shines upon my house
And cast light throughout the world
Are the Ones You Miss
THE SANDS OF TIME
Silent, creepy, mysterious as its tick,
The worthiest choice, if offered a pick,
‘Tis often mentioned of many a tricky blighter,
But there’s this one, that we should take none the lighter,
No matter how low our lives are or how high,
This one, it deceives us within a blink of an eye,
Generations of attempts, seeking to unravel,
From its study, to its hopeful travel,
Enriching us with glory and joy unbound,
But always engulfing with vigil surround,
Obviously not easy to bring to heel,
Like Sand, as slippery as an eel,
These, Chronicles of Time,
In Life, undoubtedly the Prime,
Too valuable, too worthy to waste,
Lest, we regret later, the need for haste,
Cherish, save, optimize this gift,
It’s the last thing that should be allowed to drift,
Yesterday is History,
Tomorrow is a Mystery,
But today is a Gift, that is why it is called the Present. :)
Emotions overwhelm me,
Haunting me for reasons;
24 months and 19 days have passed —
Longing’s destiny is vague.
What is a good solution
To combat fatigue of love
The other side is getting heavier —
Do I give in to emptiness’?
Yesterday you stripped me naked
Today you cut me into pieces
Knocked me out emotionally,
And perfected me mentally!
Now I see clearly;
It gives me more stability!
Realization dawned on me.
I doubted Yesterdays —
Do I need to trust today?
Am I longing for a soul?
Emotions do not need identity.
Face and body can live life,
With pretentions of mind.
Life is now a roller coaster,
The wheel, turning and churning,
Never stopping for breath.
Do I trust today, to forget
My yesterday’s Dreams?
A wish to break free from all the tensions and stress,
Pressure to perform or because of low marks distress,
Bombarding on the brain by parents and all teachers,
The soul of a science student is really much harassed.
A wish to break free from this monotonous schedule round the clock,
From college to tuitions and from tuitions back,
No time for self study, no time to get a grip,
The hectic schedule has all the capacity from the brain hacked.
A wish to break free from the rat race around,
The peer pressure and strain that continuously surround,
The fatal competition that burdens the soul,
Each moment living in fear of losing the ground.
A wish to break free from the inhumane touch,
Of those lecturers who don’t care as much,
As the ones who care but can’t be there,
To show support and encourage and all such.
A wish to break free from the wrongs happening in the world,
The laws and the rules working against certain student lot,
Adding to the already existing pressure on these tender minds,
Making the heads fuming and hot.
A wish to break free from the deep rooted ill logic,
Present in a subject that scatters all its magic,
The memorizing and roting that is so much required,
That makes the studying all the more tragic.
A wish to break free is the soul’s earnest cry,
A wish to break the barriers, to soar and to fly,
A wish to be science-minded individuals by choice, not by force,
And to be found some years hence, where our hearts lie…
What does a normal teen do? What does a normal teen think?
I really do not no. yes I am a teen but when I was 15 ½ I thought about how to take care of my mom if she needed to be changed and when to feed her and when to give her medication. I worried about what would happen to my mom. I had to go shopping for toddler cloths for my little sister and brother. I am 17 now and I still go shopping for little children cloths. I worry about getting my homework done and getting my little brother and sister’s homework done. This year I have to take the kids to kinder garden and I will be in 12th grade. I always worry about what’s going to happen to my mom she is still sick but there’s nothing I can do just keep her in my heart and prayers. I worry about what I will do when its time for me to go to college I will still be taking care of my brother and sister. There’s a lot to do I worry all the time about money things being washed and cleaning and homework. My dad does a lot for me and my sisters and brothers I just wish my big sisters would have stepped up and helped my dad take care me and my little sister and brother but they didn’t now i am trying to do all the things my mom did. It is a lot of work mothers have to do. I thought it was easy but now that I have to do it all I can say mothers are what keeps a family in order. Thanks to all the moms out there. If you have moms don’t take her for granted because you never know what will happen to them.
when rob stepped out of the courthouse,with charges for posession
he thought "it could be worse,it could have been for weapons"
and then he thought..."nothing really matters anyway"
when liz stepped of of the rehab,with a new outlook on life
she felt all those same feelings of hurt, pain, and strife
and then she thought "nothing really matters anyway"
when luke picked up his young son from daycare,and knew he had an hour
he thought back to the time he WOULD have stopped to grab his now EX-wife some flowers
and then he thought "nothing really matters anyway"
when lisa lifted up her body with nothing but her arms,and looked down at her legs
she wondered why the heck they were even THERE anyway..what for?
and then she thought "nothing really matters anyway"
all four people that same night,all in their own homes
picked up a remote,turned on the news and watched it come to blows
one man had done 25 years in jail,for something he had not really done
one woman lost the battle to addiction,one she thought she'd already won
one boy got hit by a car on his bike,he just only 5 his parents,divorced
one man lost his arms and legs while over fighting the war
four different people,four different lives,four different struggles,all about to cry
four different souls,four different heart,four different minds,all to have a fresh start
why does it take a reality check to pull us into gear?
why is it that reality sometimes must be our greatest fear?
the next time you think you're the only one who hurts and has plight
the next time you feel you're all alone,the only one who cries at night
try and remember,try not to forget,that you are never alone
whether you're telling your mom and dad your gay to the face or over the phone
whether your wife divorced you,your husband's a dog,or your kids have NO respect
you are human,deserve more,and you're not alone,cause' there is someone right next....
to you!!! nothing really matters. until you realize...nothing really matters.
We lay beneath autumn trees
And autumn leave gently falls.
Laying beside you I'm lost in your eyes,
I'm lost in the presence of you
And autumn leaves gently falls.
We lay there and autumn breeze blow.
Would I trade this moment, no, no.
The rose in your hair is white like winter snow,
beauty lies before my eyes and sparkles glow,
And autumn breeze gently blow.
We lay beneath autumn trees,
We lay in love of autumn breeze.
We lay together in each other eyes,
We lay beneath the season of autumn sky.
Autumn breeze blow and leaves of autumn trees fell,
Staring in your eyes I see the unspoken love for me it tells.
Autumn leave, red, brown, yellow,
in autumn wind they rattle a love symphony of being hallow.
Small rays of sunlight,
between autumn trees had you glow.
And as we lay together beneath autumn trees,
softly in our love we watch a autumn day goes.
Now you might have heard of the phrase “On my one sixteen”
But you might be thinking to yourself, “What does this even mean?”
It means that you are unashamed of Jesus, our Savior
And that you just don’t say it, you let it model your behavior
Now with your friends you talk about sports, school, girls, and lovers
But when it’s time to talk about Jesus, you run and hide under the covers
Now this isn’t the way we were made to react
If the gospel was the Mona Lisa we messed it up and made it abstract
We are to talk about our Lord without feelings of shame
So why do we so often fear to speak of his name?
Now Jesus didn’t come so that we could be shy
So when we are afraid to talk about him, he must ask himself, “Why?”
Now I can see him looking down on us with a tear in his eye
Saying, “These people refuse to accept me, even though for them I came to die”
Jesus died for our sin, he came and washed it all away
He completely destroyed it, it wasn’t made to stay
Now to our sin, we no longer have to be slave
So why is it that we still let our sin control how we behave?
Jesus destroyed our sin to give us a new start
He doesn’t just want you on Sunday mornings, he wants your heart
It’s not a one time thing, Jesus causes a new lifestyle
We must stay faithful to him, no matter what the trial
People are going to hate us for what we believe
They won’t embrace the joy that we receive
Now living a life of one sixteen isn’t going to be easy
You’re going to have to man up when you start to feel queasy
There will be rough times, but it’s worth the reward
We get to have a relationship with Jesus, our Savior and Lord
But this wasn’t free, it was bought with a price
And it happened to be our Lord offered up as a sacrifice
But he took the pain of all our sin, he put it on himself
He didn’t die so that the Bible could be a pretty decoration on our bookshelf
He gave it to us as an instruction manual, because we are in the middle of a war
It’s supposed to guide us and give us hope, not be just another monotonous chore
He gave up everything he had for us, out of his blood love pours
But we keep on running to the arms of another, like a group of unfaithful whores
So how about we turn back to our faithful lover
You may think you’re too sinful to love, that you’ve slipped up and can’t recover
But if you run to God you will discover
That he still loves you, he hasn’t moved on to another
So if you look back at all he has done
Why are we still ashamed to speak of the Son?
Let’s speak of him with confidence and joy in our voices
Because we know he is the best out of any of the other choices
Out of all the ways to live, he’s the only one who will satisfy
So let’s take his word and to our lives let’s let it apply
Let’s shout the name of Jesus all over the land
Let’s cry out this good news that it may grow and expand
Jesus is here to save, this word must be proclaimed
So let’s be on our one sixteen and live life unashamed
the time is
this how it
Another day breaks
Bursting upon the sky
Changing colors which enter the eye
Dangers disappear as light it grows
Erasing the fears
Fear of the crows
Gentle breezes too begin to blow
Happy noises begin to grow
Into this world I now must step
Just in time for meetings kept
I but worry keeping my mind on time
Hurring now through the day
Giving away my life and time
Fearing now those who before
Envisioned thoughts in the mind
Dreaming and fearing coming dark
Changing colors which enter the eye
Broken now with a deep sigh
Another day has passed me by
Beauty desoliving about me now
Crows wings spreading covering the ground
Destroying the freedom that was found
Everyone runs quick to hide
From this terror now residing outside
Given to fears that were once before
Hidden within the sun
Into a house they all will run
Happy tunes no more to be sung
Gratitude sold for a beer
Fleeting moments gone with the sun
Expound the increase
Daylight hours again shall be found
Caring again shall abound
Beauty shall open unto me
Another day dawns revealing the ground
As a tear rolls down i dont make a sound
i stay still i think what do i do
do i live do i die do i cry
do i go on living this lie
the lie i say all the time,that im okay , im fine, im happy
but really in side im dieing
every day i hear people say your ugly, your weird, the rate on how pretty you are is 0 or 2, why dont you just die
life should be precous, should be fun but all it does is bring pain and sorrow
im sitting here with a knife in my hand thinking what to do
do i keep feeling pain and cry every day
do i stay and get called ugly and stupid and get treated like *****
or should i just end it now
im allways getting teased and made fun of all the time
maybe its time to end it all
is life really worth living?
Sometimes I like to pretend, things never came to a end. But over time, our love became a crime. I didn't know what we had, would ever end so bad. But then I knew things weren't right, when we started to fight. Now I walk down memory lane all the time, the pain is worst then committing a crime. We only caused eachother pain, but we were eachothers maine. I thought things would be alright, but I cried alot that night. I don't want things to change, without you my life is strange. You said you wanted me so much it started to hurt that you couldn't wait, now im just another person you hate. When you said you didn't care, I knew the person I loved was no longer there. You aren't the same, the new you is lame. We both fell, now it's hell. You use to always be here for me, like family. But now your nowhere in sight, things aren't right. Empty is all that I can feel, I still can't believe this is real. I didn't mean to let you get away, I didn't know what to say. Am i with the right guy, or am i telling myself a lie. I was afraid to loose what we had, but to you that choice was bad.
not enough support,
to much weight,
so easy to hate,
to much time,
everywhere I turn,
no one to find,
in the dark,
what's done is done,
no turning back,
I see the crack,
in my soul,
I bear it for you,
but your not there,
were you ever?,
it's been so long,
I am not sure,
hurt's to the core,
take the blame,
I can't deny,
such great shame,
still can't cry,
in my mind,
I walk an empty road,
your secret showed,
always had my doubts ,
about your faith,
kept my eye's closed,
to your disgrace,
can't be surprised,
I saw it coming,
don't know what to do,
filled with fear,
The only one I trust, end could be near,
cross to bear,
must find someone,
willing to share,
too many times,
to many miles,
no more fake smiles,
numb to pain,
can not gain,
numb to all,
I've hit the wall,
scared and alone,
I don't want to bear it,
for him back,
I'd kill I swear it,
the only one who truly cared,
I pray I find you everyday,
yours alone my heart not shared,
thought I had another,
her beauty shined,
her heart divided,
can't be mine,
tried to take you,
maybe waited to long,
when I'm gone,
this is your song,
her house divided,
I could not stand,
when you cried,
I should've held your hand,
can not blame you,
I know I've shamed you,
waited to long,
another sad song,
saw you as perfect,
or am I blind?,
can't commit,one more kind,
wish you would come to me,
I know that song,
but can't remember the words,
its our song,
As I lay you down,
here I come,
are you there,
will you run,
down that empty road,
its just me,
I hope you'll come,
this time I'll let you see,
I'll throw you a bone,
until we meet,
I'll stay Broken Alone.
In the sweet world,
nothing funny like love,
the source of cry,
jokes and lies.
The first time in love,
the lovers promise the selves,
heaven and the world,
fogetting the truth
that regrets are bound to come,
any time ,any day.
Love is blind,
and makes people mad,
day and night.
it can't separate at all,
the wise and the fools,
goats and dogs.
The thirsty of love
will never end!
I feel really hurt, I hope you don't notice the mascara stains on your shirt. I dont want you to know I still cry, I dont want you to know your the reason why. I know I have made many mistakes and caused you many heartaches. But I dont know how you handle this pain, I'm going insane. I feel like that one lie, has done more than make me cry. Its caused me to look at you a different way, its caused me to overthink everything you have said or say. I dont want us to change but now things feel so strange. I guess I'll just have to adjust but I dont have anyone to trust. I dont know what all you have said is true, I dont know what to do. Should I be mad, is it okay for me to be sad. I hate the fact but I don't know how to react. I didn't exspect for that to happen, I wasn't prepared for my heart to be broken. I thought we we didnt keep secrets from eachother, I thought we could trust one a nother. But you have proven me wrong, showed me I'm not strong. I just hope you gain my trust back, before things get all wack.
Everyone does it time to time in each day
From your careless mistakes to a child at play
Sneaking the babysitter's cigarettes
Having that stray dog follow you home, then asking to keep it as a pet
A trip to the lake on the fourth of July
Then come to realize, thirty plus years have gone by
These type of reflections are kept in a special place
Some result in tears, but most bring a smile to the face
Some regret, some bad, they are related with a degree of disdain
These are all a walk down memory lane
Your bicycle has a flat, your first do it yourself tire repair kit
The shoestring that was used to repair your favorite baseball mitt
Putting playing cards on the spokes of the bike to make it roar
Mom yelling at you for coming in and out of the front door
Summer vacation, kickball until dark
Cutting through neighborhood yards causing the dogs to bark
Losing a baseball down a street drain
Does this take you back to a stroll down memory lane
Selling glass bottles at the store to get a treat
Gong home for supper, disappointed, it's Thursday night, night of the mystery
Friday a trip to the drive in
Summer is just about over, how depressing, it's school time again
People usually say third time's the charm
But hey, i don't think second time's any harm
I know I'm tripping all over again
Yes, i think its a never ending ride on a train
The train of love
Maybe it's a curse from above?
Cupid's got my head spinning
But this time I'm not losing I'm winning
I barley have time for feeling regret
I won't believe this love is a threat
Completely letting go of my past
Whatever happened, I'm glad it didn't last
I'm a happier person now
For someone to change that, i wont allow
Screw friends, i believe they're all fake
Most of them can't wait for my heart to break
They're trying to make me feel miserable
But doing that, no they won't be able
One person only matters to me
In my life i hope he will always be
A person that's perfect
That's too good to be true
Without him, what will happen? i have no clue
The best part of my life, for a fact i know
He's the person that caught my heart at "Hello"
You so long to see me in your dreams.
See my face.
Feel my touch.
Hear my voice.
You want to know if I am at peace.
Know here I feel no pain.
It hurts my heart so to see you cry.
Dry away your tears.
Rest your weary eyes.
Allow time to help you heal.
Enlighten your fears.
You will not forget me.
I will always hold a place in your heart.
Fear not my love.
Know I will always be by your side.
When I look upon you embrace me with your tender smile.
Let your laughter, your joy fill my heart.
Like a breeze I will caress your cheek.
Place a silent kiss upon your lips.
Remember the tenderness we shared.
Knowing it was real.
Somewhere in time I will come to call
My love, my friend, my soul, my mate.
We will meet again.
In a place where soul love lives forever.
A place filled with energies light.
Know I will be there to hold your hand.
To kiss your tender lips, to gently hold you through the nights.
Mark and Micheal,
were identical twins,
who would confuse,
every one in the world,
who do not know them.
One time came,
Mark bought a boat
that knocked the same day,
Micheal's mum died.
A few days later,
a funny old lady,
short and small,
mistaking him for his brother.
She said i'm sorry to hear
about your loss,
you must feel it terrible",
Mark, thinking that she
was meaning his boat.
He replied a big no,
really i'm glad to be rid of her,
she was a rotten old thing,
directly from the start.
Her engine was all shrivelled,
and smelled like a seven days
she was always losing
her water and had a big
crack in the back,
even a pretty big hole in the front.
Every time i used her,
her hole becomes big,
and she leaked like crazy.
Finally i guessed,
what finished her when i rented
her the five big guys,
looking for a good time.
I warned them all,
she wasn't very good,
but all the fools tried to get
in her ! she split right up
The old lady fainted.
The Real Christmas joy
Once again its that time of the year
The hustle and bustle that makes everyone cheer
There’s so many things that we “need” to do
But we should really be focusing on you
You gave us your son on this special day
Because you love us in every way
The holidays are focused on shopping, gifts, and toys
But these aren’t the true Christmas joys
The holidays should be about you and your love
Not about earthly things but on things above
You sent your son, hes here to save me
Oh how much better that is than a Christmas tree
We have to remember why Jesus came
So that we could be saved and glorify your name
We have to remember that during this season
We celebrate Christmas for only this reason
Now c’mon and let’s drop everything
It’s time to go worship and give praise to the kind
Hush now my
dear no more tears
shall fall, what once
was, is no more, so
hush now no more
Take my hand don’t
look back, it’s time
to heal and let him
fade ,hush now no
more tears his love
for you forgotten,
yes your biggest
fear , come with me
I can set your pain
free ,it’s up to you
and me he will no
longer be , so hush
my dear no more
tears your heart
goes black for all
that you have done,
what once was is
done, take my hand
don’t be scared let
me set you free,
look into my eyes
give me all your
sadness and fears,
hush now you
scared soul lay back
let me take control,
stop fighting and
crying for he has
moved on time to
let one last tear set
you free, hush my
dear there goes the
last tear this will
only burn for a
minute, then my
broken girl you will
be set free, you look
at me with fear your
heart begins to fade,
follow the light my
child it’s time to
fade away, your
blood drips down
the table I can hear
the cries poor out,
they fill the room
with fire as your
body goes numb
your mind begins to
slip away, hush my
dear there goes
your tears, the pain
is gone and so are
They all gather to
shed their tears over
you as they say
goodbye, in a
whisper through the
air they hear your
voice say hush my
loves don’t cry I will
always be hear, as
the years go by
your children hold
you close, the man
you broke still
days he held you ,
as his day comes to
a long lived end he
takes on last breath
and hears you say,
hush hush my love
it will be okay take
my hand I will show
you the way, now
your time is endless,
no more grey ,your
hearts are warm the
tears no more, you
walk away as
one ,never looking
back hush my dear
your safe now let us
Missing that real life feeling.
That moment of being present
where every thing
Is most clear..... I feel
With my existence.
I could die in the next breath
,my next step and it would be
with my last words id say
The greater purpose has
surfaced. It's now time for the
universe to do it's job and me
collapse in to forever becoming
one with all and everything
. In this being of clarity seeking
answers and questions is not
relevant. No voice was heard,
no hand was touched, no song
was to be sung, no dance or
self expression was necessary.
In this time and place we were
blessed with the true gift us
just "knowing". In till then we
live to die not die to live. We
continue to carry on with our
superficial vices and tainted
lusts and sins. Trying to keep
the lie alive by being blinded by
what's in the
othes ect. Is there a god?
Am I bad or am I good?
Wanting to be
wanted,needed,and loved in
stead of giving what you want.
You Try and manipulate
yourself as well as the ones
around you. Spitting out
babble. Thinking your
spreading knowledge by
recycling the teachings that
were passed down by the ones
who told these tales and fables
before us. Not thinking for
yourself. Listening to the
philosophical theories that stem
for what? A end with no
beginning or a beginning with
no end. I want to seize the day
of my waking life. Drifting in to
the sub conscious of my
soul,dreams, and heart. Is it
all just governed by the laws of
the universe? Or are we the
aliens Suffering from self
invasion of our own beliefs and
will to just "be" they have
always been among us we just
see what our minds allow us to.
More or less what we want. I
don't want to teach or preach
anymore. I just want to "go
with the flow". Meaning work
with the pattern of our Universe
instead of going against it.
Karma is more of a way than a
law. It just is. Now the strength
of all is believing. Faith can be
found in everything not just in
IT'S TIME TO WOKE UP,
IT'S TIME FOR PEOPLE TO GO FOR WORK,
IT'S TIME FOR BIRDS TO GO IN SEARCH OF FOOD,
IT'S TIME FOR FLOWERS TO BLOOM,
IT'S TIME FOR DARKNESS TO GO,
IT'S TIME TO START A NEW DAY...
IT'S TIME FOR THE SUN TO RISE.
IT'S TIME FOR PEOPLE TO GO BACK HOME,
IT'S TIME FOR BIRDS TO RETURN,
IT'S TIME FOR FLOWERS TO WITHER,
IT'S TIME FOR DARKNESS TO COME,
IT'S TIME TO SAY BYE A DAY....
IT'S TIME FOR THE SUN TO SET.
I'm through with living in these and shackles and chains,
erase me now, set me free from this world,
where blood pours and tears rain,
to a land of love, set me free from these chains,
I’m through with living a life of which i do not belong,
erase me now, let my life begin,
in a world thats just right, where there is no wrong,
let me for once feel that i finally belong,
I'm through with this life that carries on forever,
erase me now, show me my end,
let my soul and my body escape together,
no part of living says you'll live forever,
I’m through with living in the land of the blind,
erase me now, let me see where i lay,
forget who i was, my true soul i must find,
open up the world to which once i was blind,
I’m through with living I’m done with the hate,
erase me now, let my true love embrace,
let me not change my future, let me accept my fate,
show me how to be, teach me not of hate.
I'm through with living where i can not be me,
erase me now let me delve ever deeper,
let my mind dance let my heart run free,
where i think not of them, I proclaim of only me.
I'm through with living, my time is now,
erase me now, to never be forgotten,
to escape from this world, just show me how,
the end is finally here, my time is now.
darkness will fall, bring my eyes to rest,
darkness will fall, no beat in my chest,
peace it will bring, to finally be me,
peace it will bring, to finally be free.
Buried under the sand, as the thunder strikes a pounding in my saddened soul.
memories in time and space never again to see your face
I held your hand, I tried to soothe your soul, but could not sooth my own
I miss you I cannot lie, letting go I try and try if you could only see how good life can be
but for now you are lost at sea, my prayer and love never ends for you have always been my closest friend, time changes but LOVE remains, I am letting go of hurt and pain.
GOD knows I have made mistakes, but hopefully I will see you in DREAMS OF YOUR OWN!
I am adrift,
My soul is churning,
And the bloody mess of delicate petals in my palm,
Disintegrating, leaking to the floor,
Who are you?
Someone that is trying to anchor me
Who are you?
A beacon in the night guiding me to safety,
You do not know me,
Yet you try to save me,
Years have gone by and still,
My name on your lips is as unfamiliar to me as the day your lips touched mine,
You are holding me up,
If you let go I will fall to ground,
And remain there,
My life lies around me in puzzle pieces,
Each so complex the one piece cannot by any form of manipulation
Each day brings with it,
A new haunting thought,
A new battle to fight,
Each mental demon is stronger than the former,
Each created and fed by my own twisted logic,
The black walls,
Are as suffocating as the noose would be around my neck,
These black walls crowding me,
Pushing me into myself,
Standing high around me,
Its shadows marring the brightness I could have seen,
A stain upon the surface off my existence,
Seeping into my veins and poisoning me,
Restlessness in my sleep,
I try to lay down and rest,
But I am plagued,
A million thoughts and all screaming to be heard,
A ticking time bomb,
Only time will reveal the damage
Panic rushing through me,
Holding me prisoner,
If I move forward the pressure rises,
If I stay put I might as well bleed these veins dry,
And the past lingers always, mistakes,
A domino effect chasing at my every step,
How bloody my hands have become,
Streaks off crimson that will never fade,
These scars –my war wounds
I trace a finger across the puckered skin,
How sad a life could this be?
Sad enough to be the fallen,
Sad enough that the tears I once cried,
Are stuck in my throat and refuse to rise up and fall,
Sadness so deep and profound that the tears no longer do it justice,
A great winding path off misery that leads me on my journey-
Beginnings and endings
I ended before I began,
This end is long though…
Do not tell me to pick myself up,
Do not tell me to make a decision,
All is as is,
By all means never an optimist,
But the pieces do not fit,
Each is so crooked and broken,
That a realist is all I can be,
Realities off bloody palms,
And silver scars,
No way out,
Just a battle that wages on,
Created by me,
Fed by me,
Never overcome by me…
As we all know life is very amuzing fascinating and amazing
When you meet someone for the first time and your
Sense of attraction captures that person it's a feeling that
Only those who has really and truly been in love
Before can understand,it can be just as simple as
A fragrance hair style smile touch look mood humor personality
Now here it comes to let the other know
For some it is not easy at all to do
You wonder if he or she is really in to you
But never doubt yourself always take a chance on love
Because you will know the time and place because love don't lie
Before you make eye contact all kinds of emotions take place
This emotion is called cold feet it happens a lot
Do not be embarrassed we all go through it
Now when you do make eye contact with the person
And you two are face to face alone
And it is time to express what you feel
The''Heart''Never Lies and tremors come over your body
Your heart beats so loud that it is the only thing you hear
It makes your lips tremble as the words come out of your mouth
You feel so embarrassed because of your emotions
But little did you know that they felt the same way too
You wouldn't know because your heart was beating so loud
That you were not able to hear theirs either
That is why we came to the conclusion of saying that
Aunt I Really miss u, now your
in a better place.
And I swear I'd give the world,
just so I could see your face.
I'd give anything I tell you, for
one more hug, one more smile,
one more time to see you
dance as I just laugh out loud.
I couldn't except that u were
gone but it's like now I have no
choice, and it seems like
everytime I think of you, I still
can hear ya voice.
I think that that's what keeps
me going cause I still got
Of the days that u were here,
when u were sitting next to me.
And you always kept me
Auntie I swear u were crazy.
Such a kind heart, amazingly
beautiful young lady.
If tears showed how much I
miss you, I'd own a endless
I'd give everything I have juss
to bring you here to me.
You were the perfect freaking
auntie, the perfect sister, the
perfect mother, and I'm
missing you like crazy, and
hope you know I really love ya.
And when it's my time to go, I
know you'll be there waiting,
we gone do ya dance again,
and we'll have everybody
So auntie" toot that thing up let
me see u drop it" Haha. I love
you auntie Gwen, my Mrs. Pop
Lock And Drop It.
Time it passes without any warning
I remember when I had a lot of hair
In a flash the hair is all gone
It isn’t much any more
It’s all grey now
Time hmm it flies just like that
People leave lives that is not there’s
There is a voice behind
Other times is a voice and a hand behind
Sadly it doesn’t belong to them
They never have the guts to live out their lives
Time oh time you cannot pause it neither can you live two lives
Again you are all grey before you know it
I used to wonder what people will say
What they will think
I also used to think who likes me and who doesn’t
But forty years has passed and I look around and discover nobody gives a shit
Your destiny is like a personal horse
Ride it to destination
Conquer fear and you will discover hidden strengths and talents
What else can I say?
Falling in love is personal but don’t give your heart to a fool
I also threw away time falling in love stupidly
But I gained wisdom and I value self more
The door of my life now has heart breaking detectors
It can even detect fake manipulative people who have no business around me
I just graduated from school of wisdom
A school of patience
They say time heals all wounds
But leaves behind fresh scars as fresh as the original wound
Live your life; make your own personal choices
Even Gods leading expects you the recipient of the blessing to take action
Leading of God is action not inertia
No invention can pause time at least for now it’s an impossibility
Waste no more time
Pursue your dreams, live out your dreams
Open the window of courage and throw away fear
Open the door of hope and send hopelessness packing
Your dreams will not come to you go and grab it
Conquer your inhibitions set yourself free
Free from life controllers and manipulators
From people that use people
It’s a fallacy to think everybody loves you
Life is a mixture of haters and lovers
Builders and destroyers
Light and darkness
Choose your side of the divide
Decide decide decide
Time is passing
Indecision is same as time wasted
There is nothing as sweet as living out your dream life
What are you doing where you are not celebrated?
What are you doing with people who don’t like you?
It’s never too late to start all over
Never too late to start living your life
But don’t wait till the end
To be alive is a great thing
But to live your life is greater
Much better when you don’t follow the crowd
For only the outstanding stand out
as this and
i know i
my life coz
in which i
else is just
past fly me
but now i
said as it
and try to
if you can't
out of your
i will be
Today is amazing in more ways
Today I got to spend time with
my daughter and be her mum
You bring so much joy to my
life , more than you will ever
I love you no matter what we
do or where we go
I have been given a special gift
To love and guide in life
So when I say I love you every
thing will be alright
We are strong in spirit , strong
So it doesn't matter what
people throw at us we will
always have peace of mind
To achieve so much in such
Just shows how strong you can
You are amazing in all that you
That's why I'm proud to be
your mother and I love you
To burn the heart, already on fire.
He can see her face, when he holds her in her arms.
He cannot make any assumptions, of her feelings toward him.
This is only gas for the fire.
Why cant she love him, as much as he loves her?
Or perhaps petty observations, of her time in arms of another
surpassing the time of his.
Listening to the music, that only reminds him of her beauty
and how intangible it is.
Wondering minds would insist he's taken place in her heart.
He would terribly disagree.
This should be drastically below him.
All the typical human interaction, is hardly worth his attention.
Certainly does not grasp the worthiness of his time.
Anger rises as he realizes how unnecessary it is, to bare through this.
So why is he still here?
The life made a film just for me
was my producer.
I was the actor and the creator.
I created every day as my last one.
The end of the film was unknown...
Precisely as at the cinema

I am oh so tired, I didn’t sleep last night
How am I meant to sleep when we just had a fight?
Your words are like a broken record still echoing through my head
It’s been so many hours but I still wish I were dead
Sometimes I can say some things that may not come out true
But honestly I’m really sorry I ever lied to you
I’m sorry I get too distracted on my laptop or phone
I’m sorry that sometimes I just leave you alone
I’m sorry that most days I don’t even look up to say hi
I’m sorry that quite often I can’t help but cry
I’m sorry that you think drugs are the only thing on my mind
I wish I could start over, but I can’t just press rewind
You’re my reason for waking up and staying up each night
You’re the reason I’m getting better, you've made everything alright
I can’t stand going to work anymore I don’t want to leave your side
Your helping me beat depression and restoring my pride
Sure I still cry too much and talk to people you don’t want me to
But I’m completely certain I only ever want to be with you
You’re the one I've chosen; the one who has my heart
If you give me just one more chance, can we take it back to the start?
Let’s pretend that we just met and nothing ever went wrong
I want to be in your arms forever; I want us to be strong.
So please baby, never forget that I’m in love with you.
And to keep you with always there is nothing I wouldn’t do.
BE YOURSELF NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!
I’m tired of defending myself, everybody telling me what I’m doing from what I’m not
I thought this was my life, last time I checked I knew what I’ve done and what I’ve not
My life has become something like a best seller but not a lot really know the plot
But its seems like I’m targeted more than others and they keep hitting the same wrong spot
*****Isn’t this how most of us feel sometimes? *****
Funny thing is, in life you cannot always tell if someone has changed, if you’re not around everyday
So blame me if I’m wrong but do we honestly think that after 30 years a person stays the same way?
Can we conclude that a person actions remain the same, of years past in what they now portray?
I highly doubt it because that’s like telling me that everybody lives their lives in a constant replay
People do change you know, some for the better and some for the worst
Some become successful and for whatever reason some get driven by a hearse
Life is not like a choir, trust me, you don’t have time to rehearse
But we are given opportunities, to make a mark, like a song with more than one verse
Who are we to judge how someone lives their life, even if it’s not how we live ours
People need to be more concerned about theirs and pay way less attention to yours
If we focused our time on more important things for ourselves instead of wasting hours
Who knows how great we could soar, maybe, probably higher than the old twin towers
Live your life for you because you can only represent yourself and control your actions
Don’t let what other people say and do affect you and cause any distractions
If and only if someone’s behavior affects you due to constant interactions
Then make a change, take a different route, to side step them and move toward self-satisfaction
"You keep trying to tell me?" Dont you see me in chains?
You were the ones to tie me, taking my freedom away.
Your both still as sinsiter, delivering nothing but pain.
How can you tell a prisoner, to go forth and change?
Time is flying fast, and Im forced to forge a life.
But I cant do that, behind bars every night.
You dont see my tears, and you never really cared.
You just leave me here, your compassion is so rare.
These bars are made of iron, I cant bash my head through.
This situation is dire, Im losing my sanity too.
I cant even tell, my time here has only risen.
Save me from this hell, release me from this prison.
Once upon a time there was a girl
who dreamed of a fancy houses and a peaceful world
Blue, purple , and pink flowers along the street
Right where night and day meet
The spray of fluffy white seeds from
dandelions sprinkle the air
Sweet spring breeze blowing through my hair
The soft touch of the sun against my face warms my nose
The unmistakable smell of a rose
I feel myself drifting to a daze
Daydreaming it'll be my turn someday
to go to the big city
Where the flashing lights and action show no pity
Or maybe the islands
Drink pi na~colada until my body and relaxation make mends
Melting as a fine brother caresses my hand
And takes me down the beach
As far as the sunshine will reach
Daydreams, night dreams
Let's wake up to see what my dreams will redeem
MY heart and mind are at war
My heart and my mind are at war,
Body and soul lost between the hate,
Confused and hurt not knowing what for,
They pull, twist and fight to escape,
The battle of pain sweat and tears,
Caught in the midst of heartache,
My soul breaks free and leaves behind its fears,
The pain is too much for my body to take,
I built a wall and smashed it to dust,
For another, but for what,
I lost my faith and lost her touch,
I am soulless standing here stuck,
My mind has won this war,
My heart damaged and broke,
Still not knowing what for,
I pray and i still hope,
That this war will end,
And mind and heart will coincide,
Hoping my soul and body will mend,
For the rest of me has already died
I am done with the pain of passion,
And done with the love of pain,
All i here is my hearts door's crashing,
For this is what makes a man go insane,
I felt her love i loved her touch,
I kissed her lips and she kissed my heart,
Now this feeling, i feel too much,
Now it’s time for my mind and heart to part,
I will see her eyes in the moon lit sky,
Her beauty in a sky of wonder,
I will shed one tear and let the pain die,
As i lay awake in a world of loveless slumber
The illusions of love corrupted my mind,
The confusion of passion clouded my eyes,
The death of my heart came soon this time,
So now i will love in a world of my demise,
You can’t feel this pain that i feel,
I am done trying and this time i am,
When i write i write what’s real,
So now can you see why my soul ran?
Can you stop and wonder,
How i made it so far, with so much pain,
Can you here my heart crack with thunder,
And can you see i live in a world of rain,
I have sought love found it and lost i
I am tired of pain. so tired my heart is exhausted
i am done now if she comes back then i am here,
if not like i said i have shed my one and only tear

Failure to come to a Complete Stop
Feeling grumpy, harried,
Impatiently jump-start Kia.
Leave Mom’s neighborhood.
Octagonal, purely quintessential red sign taunts.
Upping velocity, willfulness exacerbated, you zoom…
Extraneous white vehicle (undercover) trumpets sirens.
Realization quickens… Pegged!
Officer notes makeshift license knowingly.
Jail imbues hastily.
Gaining freedom – eight-thousand dollars cash.
When the Princess gets Agitated
Sorry, time out, please.
When Time Stands Still
Leaping in barefoot abandon
Soaring every which way from Sunday
Laughter effortlessly exhaling cool breezes.
Lounging on nature’s lush carpet
Silhouette illumined by carefree serenity
Lapping up rays and shining them back
Licorice sticks and crackers and brie
Sweet plumpness of kiwi and mango and peach
Licking ripe juices off contented grin
Long luscious showers in waterfall glory
Swirling delightfully playfully pure
Lingering loving caresses of freshness
Last blush of daylight’s electrical charge
Sunset yields gracefully generously kind
Lights flicker syntax where space enfolds meaning
Lay here beside me
Savor my dream
Let my enchantment touch yours
Mom I lost you when I was 6
It on a was Christmas Night
You was killed in front of me
I was only 6
When it happen
I stood their sacred
Not knowing what to do
I ran too the phone and called 911
The time they got their it was to late
Now that I'm older
I was I could you see you
One Last time
For Mother Days
I would buy you Roses
And give you a million kisses
If I could see your face
But I Know god took you for a reason
Cause your up their standing right beside him
Staring down on me
I love you mom
Happy Mothers day
My baseball cap is my helmet and my Nike's are my boots,
My country is my hood and my colors on my flag are niether red white or blue,
My weapon of choice is my two hands,
sometimes it can be whatever when I am threatened with a great fall from my stand,
I have no general or soldiers but I have family and above all I got heart.
My battlegrounds remain in my own home and sometimes even in the local Wal-Mart.
Every inch of my hood is up for friendly fire,
Violence remains apart of life around here searching for peace is far from desire,
Everyday remains but another day someone will die,
but more importantly is that another mother, brother, sister or father will cry.
But I am a street soldier so I am prepared for anothers or worse yet my own demise,
And as a street soldier I must keep the battle in check, no not with what I see with my two eyes, but what war is really going on inside the mind,
My battles dont come from without but from within......I am a street soldier fighting through time.....
Take your hand and put it out forward,
Than swing out out to the side, c'mon don't be a coward.
This is fun, now swing your hips from side to side,
Remember all the times you couldnt express yourself and you cried.
But now your can swing your legs and feet any way you want,
Look for that new move that you looked for your whole life like a hunt.
Grab someone by the hand and let them join you in that awesome moment,
I promise you, you will love this feeling you are about to feel.
Turn up the music and dance your heart out,
Move to the beat and go wild and feel like your out of sight.
This is your moment, don't let anyone take that away for you,
This is not happening too slow and i tell you that that's the truth.
Put some head phones on and go to your own world of greatness,
Bust a move like you never did before, I promise it's harmless.
Make your heart feel what I am feling right now and take my hand,
I promise that I will make you smile and scream with joy and stand.
when i look into your eyes i can see myself stareing back at me. i stare longer than usuall to make sure you can see yourself in me. is this love or a game like we once professed it to be? you say you love me all the time and make sure im ok. your always saying uplifting things at my darkest times and brighting up my day. when we kiss my hear melts while you catch it in your hands. im floating in the air of love and our never ending romance. time flys so fast it seems, like a lighting bolt traveling to endless streems. ill wait for your my love, no matter how long it seems. im apart of you and your apart of me.
Lost in a hidden cave
inside this little shell
banging on the walls of glass
creating these deep splintering cuts
can't judge the person hiding
when you haven't seen
the tears that hide behind these eyes
hiding inside the broken shell
of a broken heart
It started out simple, I never thought it through. The start of an addiction so exciting and new. I could have never for seen how far it would go. If I would have thought it trough I would have been strong and said “NO”. It started out simple, It was my favorite thing. I never for seen the heartbreak it would bring. It started out simple, yet so intense, so strong. I could have never for seen the addiction would hold me for so long. It’s not so simple when the best parts of you break away, day by day. It’s not so simple when your favorite thing is something you hate. How could I for see what would become my fate? It’s not so simple when you’re trying to keep from getting sick but with every prick you get more sick; sick of yourself and this nasty habit you keep. I never knew it would go this deep. It started out simple, it ended so complex. How could I have for seen my life would become this unmanageable mess. Down low in the gutter, ashamed, and depressed. How could I have for seen id be under arrest, for this habit I love, it’s this habit I hate. It started out simple, it started out great. How could I have for seen id become a felon and in prison id wait? It’s not so simple, I guess it never really was…..next time I’ll makes it simple, next time I’ll say no to these drugs!
Within this wasteland, cold, lost and without light
lye the corpse of a man, hopeless and without life.
But what was so bold, to take life from a man?
Was it the bitter cold, or the loneliness of the land?
In this land he once fought, for reasons unknown.
Perhaps he had thought, he wasnt going to die alone.
If loneliness were sin, may his soul be damned.
Have fires burn him fom within, to where he cannot withstand.
This is what he deserves, nothing more nothing less.
But he still waits for her, so his soul may be put to rest.
This land full of ice and sin, beats like a loveless organ.
The burial of many men, where love and peace were all so foreign.
Welcome to the land, The Arctic Land Of Sin.
Where the life of a lonley man, never saw a compassionate end.
For the first time
I am actually happy
It's not everyday that I smile
I'm not even feeling crappy
I wake up yelling to the world at the top of my lungs
I don't know
Words can't exspress how I feel right now
For the first time I felt
I felt like taking a bow
For all my hard work
And now I know
For the first time I have something to smile about

Doris Anne Beaulieu
All alone at the end of the day
The time, just a little past ten
Evening has come for a short stay
It’s time for her sorrow again
The smile on her face she’s been holding
Suddenly, she lets fall
And the feelings begin unfolding
She comes out of her personal wall
As the world settles down for the night
She awakens herself from a dream
The girl they thought had life going right
No longer the image she seemed
She takes off the disguise she’s wearing
Opens her heart to the truth
Now behind closed doors she’s not caring
About life, or love in her youth
She sits by the mirror spilling tears
And she cries by herself in the dark
Hours of acting like there’s no fears
Takes a lot from an empty heart
Inside she’s lonely and sad
But acts like she's fine by day
In her misery, wishing she had
A friend, or a promise to stay
Ashamed of the truth she’s been keeping
Living hours in daylight a lie
This is the reason in darkness she’s weeping
Taking time out from each day to cry

Knocking at the Door
There was a time when hunger dwelt the land.
She who has no pity,
left her mark, the mark of death.
I was one of many that hunted the hare,
whose empty belly rumbled,
whose pale skin hung like a cloak.
Humbled this moment lies a great wolf,
Fierce frantic, writhing in terror,
tied down with rope.
But our friend is only a character
Upon hearing an enchantment.....
Who’s afraid of the? Who’s afraid of the?
You couldn’t catch pigs could you? Would you?
In mine comfort sleep
will I ever see you again?
Beware the Gypsy’s gaze,
alike a starving rat.
Imagining not compassion,
But a content satisfying loneliness
How cheery time was
when the great black pot,
bubbled ! and spat sharply.
Like the wolf snarling, snapping , staring,
who’s that?.... Knocking at the door !
Hendrifton Farm Christmas 09.
An old gypsy woman actually knocked at the back door,
the moment Carrington finished this poem.
the time of us is ending
i can feel it in your kiss
we have loved each other for so long
to have it ending just like this
i cant believe after all these years
your love for me is gone
i feel it in my heart
as i wait for you to go
and i know i will survive
and i still love you so
you came back from your country
as you have the last few years
but each time that you come back
you never are the same
it,s your love for me you lack
and i dont know who,s to blame
but dont worry i,ll be strong
like i always have been
but you cntinue to lie to me
and you feel guilty
because your wrong
it wont take long
for me to get back up and fight
it was you who did us wrong
i,ll be the one who sleeps at night
TEARS THAT NEVER DRY...
A JOYFUL MOMENT JUST TEMPORARY HEALING,
MY TRUE FEELINGS NOT NOTICED.
MATERIALS NOT WHAT I LONG FOR,
A HUG CAN TAKE ME A LONG WAY.
MOMENT LIVED ONLY EXTENDED BY WARM HEARTS OF STRANGERS,
I FEAR WITHOUT THEM A WEEK IS LIFE PERIOD FROM LAST SMILE.
IT HURTS MORE BECAUSE I’M WISER THAN YOU THINK.
NOTICED EVERY TIME YOU LIE YET I KEEP STRONG.
FALSE PROMISES YET I STILL FALL FOR THEM EVERYTIME,
KEEP BELIEVING YOU WILL CHANGE BUT SLOWLY LOSING HOPE.
HOW DO I CALL GOD IF YOU THAT HURTS ME LOVES HIM MORE,
COULD GOD HELP ME IF YOU THAT HURT ME SPEND MORE TIME IN HIS PRESENCE?
I FEAR THIS TEARS WILL NEVER DRY,
THAT DEATH COULD BE WHAT DRIES THESE TEARS.
STRONG FEELINGS OF HATE GROWING NOT CAUSE OF LOVE,
LOVE I DO GET BUT DON’T SEEM ENOUGH.
THIS MONTAIN NOT EVEN FAITH CAN REMOVE.
CAN’T KEEP THE TEARS FROM FALLING ANYMORE,
HAD YOU GAVE UP ON ME I COULD HAVE LIVED BETTER,
TRY TO PROVE MYSELF YET IS NEVER ENOUGH.
I FEAR TO GIVE UP ON YOU SO YOU DON’T HURT LIKE I DO.
KEEP HOPING FOR A BRIGHTER DAY,
SEEM LIKE I’M JUST HOPING FOR SUMMER IN PLUTO.
ALL I CAN DO IS JUST PRAY ONE DAY YOU WILL TRUST ME,
TRUST IS ALL I EVER NEEDED FROM YOU.
CAN YOU EVER TRUST ME?
TELL ME WHAT TO DO AND I WILL DO IT ALL.
TRUST IS ALL I NEED FROM YOU,
CAUSE I’M TIRED OF CRYING.
TRUST IS ONE OF TWO WAYS THAT CAN DRY THIS TEARS,
WILL YOU EVER WIPE THESE TEARS?
I also once had a perfect life
I once had moments with full of pride
I glittered around like a free butterfly
I used to live like never gonna die
I once laughed like never before
I once used to smile from the heart's core
I was a doll for whom people would think
Can freeze everything just with a blink
I too once had an envious life
Was all happy with fantasying pride
A perfect face with the perfect phase
Glancing at what people would craze
But one day you have to go through that time
Trust me it tastes worse than a lime
The moment i felt there can't be any cut
The doors to happiness felt tightly shut
Only i know the pain of those breezes
Who changed their directions and echoed those teases
When everything is perfect world runs along
At worst of moments they themselves will prove you wrong
Nobody is there to wipe your tear
Don't look around or you'll die with fear
Nobody's gonna feel your tear when you’re dead
Even the mother eye rejects the tear ahead
Time made that doll to creep and crawl
She became the one for whom nobody would fall
Time made her life so lousy and brawl
Now who'll believe once for her people crazed to fall
Never call your life a "perfect" one
As time and tide waits for none
I too once had a perfect life
Now ask me as I have nothing for that pride
But life moves on and the world is vast
Just live each moment as it is your last
Or else who knows if there'll be a day
When you'll end your life in some worst dismay!!!
When silence fills the air, with no one around and time to spare
I escape to the memory of an old life
The love that made everything worth the fight
My eyes are closed, And this reality slips away
I hear your voice as if it was still that day
A love that can't be
But the world didn't matter when it was just you and me
This even for moments is my reality
The one time we were both free
In the darkness where prying eyes could never see
You still could find me
Words where never spoken that could explain our love
Yet, our eyes betrayed us all the time
Every second was spent like our last
Knowing that soon these times would be locked in the past
As we touched, our darken souls merged
No matter how hard we fought, it was felt as we must
True love, with an evil lust
Destiny is how you said you knew we were meant to be
We knew with each parting day, that our silent love will destroy us
But it wasn't enough time, and this was an addicting crime
The warmth of your love is the only thing that restarts my heart
As my face circles in your mind even with years apart
The pain, in my escape is worth it every moment
To relive the past, that seemed to end all to fast
Our song that you wrote, reminds me of the hell we knew we would go through
It was too late then to care, we jumped leaving nothing to spare
Your words still hold true, I love you too
Nothing will ever replace me or you, And the cruelty of this world we knew
But I do it all over again, Knowing that it would end
Because your the best escape, now and then
The night has come
And gone away is our sun
The time of making hay is no more
We sleep waiting for tomorrow morn
But what if we don't wake to see the sun
Will our night praise the morn
Or the time the sun did come
Or cry,wail and moan
And beg father nature
To give us a chance to see another morn.
Today we’re caught up in so much noise
We spend so much time on our gadgets or toys
We worry about Facebook, Twitter, and all that’s online
But when it comes to Jesus? Nah we don’t have the time
There are so many things packed into our day
But do we take that precious time to pray?
Now I get it, we all have stuff to do
But Jesus could have been doing other things when he was dying for you
Now we have to spend our time wisely
Cause when I look at my life, it always surprises me
We have school, sports, homework or a job
We think “Ya I can handle this…no prob”
We say we can handle it, but this is just a fake façade
What we should do is cast our anxiety on God
1 Peter 5:7 says he’ll do this cause for you he cares
He constantly pours out his love that he shares
He can make our lives so much less stressful
So to his offer, why are we so resentful?
We should want to cast our anxieties on him
Sometimes, we just don’t know where to begin
Even though God has so many things to do
He’s always there waiting to spend time with you
He’s there to help you, comfort you, or wipe away that tear
He can fix any wound no matter how severe
So let’s slow down and take our foot off the gas
And let’s put our hope in Jesus for it will always last
Some of you might think that God is outdated
Check your glasses cause they’re probably jaded
Unlike our gadgets, he will never go out of style
Whether you know it or not, he’s been around for quite awhile
He’s been here since the beginning, he knows what he’s doing
So he should be the one that we are pursuing
you have to go.
wherever you go,
every night the moon will comes behind you
and i will follow that.
I will get the road of the moon.

Autumn leaves cling high in the tree tops
As acorns drop to the bottom.
Summer’s hot days have long since gone
Replaced by the coolness of Autumn.
The roses and mums are still in bloom
For the nights are brisk without frost.
Halloween is just around the corner
With the brilliance of Autumn soon lost.
Dead leaves create the rainbows of Autumn
Red, yellow, orange, purple and brown.
Soon winter shall blanket nature in white
As the seeds of summer lie dormant in the ground.
Wild geese call as they fly in formation
Across the star filled skies of night.
The moon seems larger and has more color
Reflecting with wonder its light.
Autumn for most, is their favorite time of year
Till winter passes and it’s spring once more.
A time of harvest and transformation
As the light of day is shorter than before.
How many Autumns have come and gone
Only God could tell the story.
How many Autumns have we left to enjoy
With their fulfillment, radiance and glory.
I lay in my bedroom asking why?
Then I relize it not me its the cold hearted guy!
I'm sick and tired of hearing all his lies,
Now I've decided its time to say goodbye!
Ive been hurt many times through the years,
I no longer show emotion,
Because I've ran out of tears.
I'm so tired of you bringin me down,
Makin me walk around with a frown,
I'ts time to erase you from my memory,
and no longer be in misery.
So much wasted time,
And you aint even worth a dime!
Never understood you,
and why you act the way you do!
You broke my heart,
Then tore me apart,
Dont ever again try to speak to me,
Just do me a favor and let me be!!
Twenty seven years
You came to this world
Small and sweet
First time our eyes met
Connection was there
I will never forget
Reaching up for a embrace
I came to see you
First words you said
In my mind always
Will be set
You are your
Mom’s pride and joy
She wanted you
For a long time you know
Every time I phoned
I heard a cry
Your mom could not
Leave you with anyone
I asked please let me try
You are grown up now
Blossomed to a beauty
I wish you could believe
What is happening
To you my pretty?
Food became your misery
Wasting away day by day
I pray to God to guide you his way.
To show you what you do
Depriving your self of food
God gave and blessed
Please don’t make your self sick
I don’t want to see you looking like death
Shine your beauty show it to the world
Let your voice sing and be heard
I do love you like you are mine
When you were little we spent
Together allot of time
Take good care my precious girl
Your kids needs you
We love you Jessica
summer is fading
leaves are changing
i hear the laughter of children daily
as they wait for the bus
some are going back to school
but not all of us
i have no idea what i want to be
i still have no job
even though i am 18
i feel like my life has suddenly stopped.
like the rain falling from a cloud
and the time i have left
is like the one last drop
i have so much deciding i still have to do
i have so many choices
and yet i still have no clue
so i guess i will wait for the right time to come
when its more work
and not always fun
thats when i know
my adult life has begun!
The days in life, if you don't use them correctly,
and you spend them without doing things that you love,
it is like a good meal that you don't eat during the day
and you throw it to the garbage.
Thus if you lose your everyday meals,
near to the end of your life,
you feel hungry,
but there is not enought food to satiate you.
and you die hungry.

Start your one sided war against me
I'm not playing your childish games
That's not fear in my eyes
That's the look you get when your not worth my time
Next time you pray
You better thank God for the mercy of me
And know with one more step
I'll be your biggest regret
An eye for an eye
But I will feel you bleed
Warnings don't come without a price
And now you know
I'll take your miserable life
Keep pushing, keep lying, keep thinking I'm crying
But the game you play, I've already mastered
The first rule, the person who has nothing you can take, is the most dangerous
So remember me every time you breath
Remember I was the one who let you leave
Your war, is nothing without me
Weren't you the one, who said I was unstable
Well meds can't fix this
And hell has nothing for what I have in store
So your one sided war will soon end
Use your name to plead to God, Your not smarter then I think
You dug your grave
And I have no problem helping you sleep
MEN COME AND GO
SOME FRIENDS LAST A LIFE TIME
ITS OKAY TO HAVE MORALS AND SAY NO
LIFE IS A HUGE MOUNTAIN TO OVER COME AND CLIMB
IM NOT ABOUT TO SLIP BACK
INTO THE PAST
IM NOT GOING BACK TO THE METH AND THE CRACK
DAMN HOW LONG IS THIS DEPRESSION GOIN TO LAST
MEN LIKE TO PLAY THEIR GAME
I GUESS SOME WOMEN DO THE SAME
I AINT THE ONE
I LIKE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME I LOVE TO HAVE FUN
BUT I AINT BOWING DOWN FOR ANYONE
BEING A PUSH OVER
AND NOW THAT I AM SOBER
I CAN THINK CLEAR
I MISS MY GRANDMA SO MUCH HAVE A LOT OF FEAR
AND DEPRESSION WITH OUT HER HERE
BUT MY BRAIN
STILL AINT RIGHT
I FEEL LIKE IM GOING INSAIN
I NEED MY LUTHUIM BACK OR I JUST MIGHT
MEN SAY THEY ARE FOR REAL
JUST GET TO STEPPING SO I CAN TAKE MY KLONIPION PILL
I DON’T NEED THE BS IN MY ALREADY MESSED UP LIFE
I WOULD MAKE A GREAT GIRLFRIEND OR WIFE
BUT I GUESS ITS NOT FOR ME
SO UNTIL IT IS I WILL REMAIN SINGLE AND FREE
I AINT ABOUT TO SETTLE FOR LESS
THAN I NEED AND MAKE ANOTHER MESS
IN MY HEAD
IM NOT ABOUT TO JUST JUMP INTO BED
AND GIVE U WANT U THINK U NEED
AND IM NOT ABOUT TO CUT TO SEE MYSELF BLEED
IM ABOUT TO CLOWN ON ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PLAY
THE GAME CUZ NOW ITS MY TIME IT’S A NEW DAY
AND IM STRONGER
AND IM WISER
AND I DON’T CARE IF IT TAKES LONGER
TO FIND SOMEONE GREAT
IM JUST NOT THE ONE TO MAKE IT ON THE FIRST OR EVEN 4TH DATE
I NOW HAVE MORE RESPECT AND MORE CLASS
AND ANYONE WHO AINT DOWN CAN KISS MY FAT ASS
contentment contradicted by emotions supressed
more like medicated happiness
an unmanagable mess
lost in deception
denial, i lied to my self
with a destorted perception
I sabatosh my health
abandon my values
turn my back on my kin
in a control battle with addiction
I delusianaly think I could win
a downward spiral of adventure
in which im killing my self
its time to surrender
its time to seek help
Each time I leave this place
My mind always sits back
Pulling my weight back
Telling me, something is missing
Each time I hold on
To my breath hoping
It doesn't escape the tip
Of my lungs
I'd rather much prefer it drowns me
But this never happens
Each time as we drive away
And memories of you in the rear view
Gets smaller, but their place
In my soul gets heavier
And so I never know whether to look back
Or continue to push my weight back
Whispering, each time
That I left something behind
Deleted the memories of what we had
I am not going to lie i had a blast
but now its time to end this at last
forget about everything put it behind us leave it in our past
where did the time go? It sure went fast
Im sorry about everything it all even left me with a gasp.
Deleting the memories of what we had...
By: Raymond T Padilla
An old picture I hold in my hand.
It’s me and you and our love…frozen in time.
A silent witness, after many years, of a great love that no longer exists.
I ask myself, where is all this great love now?
Where are you now?
Don't ask me if was the truth when I told that I loved you.
Yes, I am sure that I loved you.
But if you saw me now, you would see another person.
It's no longer the man who told you that.
It was me many years ago.
Now that man doesn't exist anymore.
That man changed, as everything changes in this world.
The universe is a big recycling machine; nothing remains the same forever.
How many “frozen in time” moments in my life...
I see my face in the mirror and my face in the pictures.
Oh yes, it must be many moments;
every one different from the other.
Every picture with a story to tell,
a story to remind oneself of something for a moment;
something big or small, good or bad, important or not.
This picture speaks for an immense love written in my heart.
A great love…frozen in time.

Small joys adorned my life.
Flowers against the wind of my dreams.
They gave life to the loneliness of my soul.
I wait for my tomorow to come,
Lost inside my today.
Sometimes love is like rain
Immeasurable when outpoured
Or love is as a seed of a tridax
Cannot be taken back when given
Can love be as the sun
Brightening the very lives of all who see it
Is love truly a trap
As I have heard from my peers
Is it a diversion into doom
Is it a complicated path to hell before hell
I read from tales and legends
Of the time before time
When only love existed
A time before man was made
Before earth was born
Could this be true
Love is told to be beautiful and strong
And it will continue to exist
Till time shall end and begin again
Could this be its reality
I’m standing still and waiting
To see what love has to offer
I truely lack words to explain it bt,
Anyway I will try,
Despite the fact that I had 1 or 2,
That is something I will never forget,
Because everyday the episode Must,
Yes, Must occure not once nor any
countable number bt several times,
He too was abit tipsy n so...........,
Everything was down hill,
Meaning none of us sufered the
shyness as it was already taken care
From the way he looked at me,
Blinkd at me,teasd me with his
tongue, to the moment we could no
longer stand the 100 cm btwn us,
Ooh! The walmth of his hands,
The way they shoke/trembled,
The magic they did to my entire
Starting with making me lick my,
Lips just to ensure i swallowd all
the mixd emotions,if only I he wld
sink whole into my body n we
My goodness, there was soo much
to learn, sooo much emotions to
encounter n file on my mind till
The entire night we never slept n
even if it were u wld u sleep?
I thought so too, so we as well did nt
let go off each other,
I was tought what to do n how,
practically with as minimal theory as
To this date it is all there on my
mind and each moment that I
replay the episode I just hope to see
him some day
Sorry I almost forgot,
We are talking about my first time
to love a guy at first site. So that he
may complete his lesson because
that one night time was not on our
side due to his persistence on
You see me i see you
It's just us two
As we begin to kiss
Our bodies turn into a twisted bliss
Moving slowly but steady
Until I say I'm ready
First time I'm feeling this
First time I wanted this
Nothing like the first time
Slaves bind the rind and grind the porcine mind to a fine dust,
on the killing line, tools rust,
their shine left behind and our curly tailed brethren ascend to a time where the weather is fine ,
a constant sublime,
an unfurlment of the gaian divine,
ecstatic sequences sing to the night as biomechanisms swerve to harness the light..
rely not on sight but on the abolition of blight ,
keep it lit like a torch, avoid pork and veganise on the porch
lurch past the church and plant a score of yew trees and find the ease of the consciousness that lies within all of these felons and melons and rise up to heaven to join the eleven.
Asteroids slither thru bevels, and a blankness blankets their trails
as the evolution on earth slows to the pace of a snail
we walk the forest for days
So far gone they cant change our ways
we will sleep here tonight
Life is better in a dream so right
There they is the golden one
Followed came undone
They embrace, struggle to say
No feelings, kept at bay
What is side us
Thing we can’t transgress
“You are beautiful, Liberty 5-3000”
Said but can’t understand
It's time I put you in your rightful grave.
Time to put the dirt over your night lit face.
It's time to face the sun light, leaving the beautiful safe memories.
It's time I find my sun and leave my dark cool moon.
A fire in my heart
Blazes brightly- for the entire world to see
Caressing the wind
Dancing on the wood
Baby Sent me free i cant take this pain anymore
you can see all the tears fallen down my face
like water fall. i'm walking away from the pain
and hurt in my life baby you got me all wrong
im not getting any younger i just getting old
be careful what you wish for might just get it all
when i think my self at nights getting shorter and
wake up in morning sun hits your face days getting
time pass by you getting old
last time you can see your baby face
all when i look in your eyes i dreaming of your
face i think about all the time dream at midnight
because its only me and you
the days keep changing people say goodbye or say Hello
i hope this life get better as time goes
one chance one breathe one life one kiss one love
as i go sleep holding on to my pillow looking out window
at the stars i keep breathe because i know not to let go
and im not going let you go
Soft-spoken words of love
Urgently spoken words of passion.
A man and a woman
One complete love
Since time began
Predestined to be as one.
We've been together before
In other lifetimes
We've fought dragons
And have been torn from each others arms
Yet our love prevailed.
We've walked on this earth many times together
Perhaps for a moment
Perhaps for years
But our heart is one heart
And we were meant to be.
So when our time on earth
Once again comes to a close
Have no worries my dear
For we will find each other again
For our love is ageless
A love for all time
Walking these streets of manhattan so aimlessly
All alone in the dark only lights by the city shops
I'm scared alone feeling out of love now lost the knife was rough
You stabbed me in the back all I can do is Cry on my knees veins hot as fire
With mixed emotions running through
It's Like this dagger killing me more inside all this love and all this hate burns me away
Deep inside passion urning for another lusting after another
As if I were a lion in a jungle taking that prey and burning up with tense desire
It's like a knife with loves wounds after the lust
This is very hard for me in a world you left me bleeding alone
Never picked me up left my heart to die out
With my tears hitting the city pavement times like this just burns me away
Love can go off like a loaded gun a love vanishes just like a knife with lust
-- by Brian OToole jr.
The days were going by, making years
And the castle was being built, brick by brick
I knew it would never finish
I would end up with just ruins
But the castle was getting built
and I was feeling happy

Once upon a time there was a dream
And the dream found a lonely man
And the man started to dream
And he was happy
But the dream was too big to fit into man's life.
Once upon a time there was a dream that never finished.
Once upon a time there was a lonely dream
Without a dreamer.

Inside my nose lies my kind of treasure
Each dig brings no gold, but a lot of pleasure
Most times it's the right nostril that's clogged
With the left side, when I blow out, I can whistle for the dog
My girl and I used to be very close
Until she caught me picking my nose with a pair of her panty hose
When I pull out chunks of green and a lot of slime
I feel like I committed the perfect crime
Everyone is cautious with the ice, I grab it with my bare hands
They all gag, not one of them undersatnds
It's compulsion, something I have to do
So don't get grossed out when I do it in front of you
There are time at home that I use a vaccuum cleaner hose
No matter where I am, private or public I still pick my nose
On Thursday, we are having a pot luck
I shall fry my own chicken, a family recipe I call Southern Cluck
I feel so priveledged, one bag of ice saved just for me
I am astounded, at the pot luck, no one tries my family recipe
I am a very sanitary person with a very noticeable habit
Maybe next time I will bring marinated Rabbit
I just wanna know why you find what I do so gross
I can mix a drink for you while you explain and all the while be picking my nose
Either way you look at it, of my nose, I am still in charge
I wonder often if someone has fingers that are too large
For them I feel bad they can't clear their airway
I clear it probably six or seven times a day
If I can't flick it, I wipe it on my clothes
Watch for sharp, dry objects left behind,this is one of the hazards when you pick your nose
This is dedicated to all of you nose pickers out there
Men will sometimes pull out nostril hairs
Women normally pull clean
Unless your name is Butchy McQueen
It is stuffed so you blow and blow
A finger irrigation can bring it under control
Don't dig so hard that you cause a nose bleed
No matter how often you harvest the field, the nose plants new seeds
I myself, never use self control
Even at lunch, when everyone is featstin' I still pick my nose
Given enough time you realize who your friends are
At best you don't have many
At worst you don't have any
Friends forget family neglects
All it takes is time
Love thought of as true,
Will be undone and come unglued
All it takes is time
Time reveals the truth
Time illuminates your path
what stands the test of time
Is all you ever had
Time teaches appreciation
Time builds a clearer sharper mind
Even if in the end you find
You have nothing
through my hazy mind
days gone by
smiles in many places
our innocence so pure
grandfather clock keeps ticking away
marching forward soldier of time
all the same in the end
pray for forgiveness
for faults and crimes
days go faster every year
time stops here for none
would give anything to go back again
once more to be and feel young
Its the time of year when everyone gives thanks together.
Its when we show appreciation for one another.
The table is full with food made with love.
Your grandma made a pie for you just because.
Laughter is filling the room and food is getting passed around.
Everyone at the table loves that sound.
Sweet potatoes,pie,turkey oh my.
The family is all at the table having a blast.
Talking about how thanksgiving came so fast.
The food is brining a delicious smell.
We know this all too well.
The family is finally reunited.
Everyone is so excited.
Cherish the time with your family and friends.
everyone is so glad that the can meet again.
We are all soldiers.
We fight hidden enemies that come from the future.
The problems stay there at the end of the bed
to say good morning every day.
Every new problem is the next enemy
that needs different weapons to fight.
And when the day finishes, most times the glory belongs to us.
We have survived and we are alive.
"If something doesn't kill you, it will make you stronger"
You get the weapons to exterminate it the next time that it comes.
The life makes soldiers, everyone separate, fighting a different enemy.
The ally that we have is our past.
Our history always teaches us how to fight
and to the end of our life the experiences make us veterans.
We have collected many weapons to give to the next generations.
We are all soldiers of life.
We have all the same purpose.
And we fight, all of us, our biggest enemy…time.

Where do you turn
When the world has fallen apart
When you are so lost
You don't believe your worth being found
The thought of God makes your heart pound
And you begin to run
Run back to the comfortable place
Where each day you wake up with another face
Hating your life and this place
But when the light comes to close
You run... Just to watch your world fall apart
Something you have always known
When the pieces are broken
They can be easily handled
Like a night with only a candle
Never being able to see the demons
That surround you
When the pieces slowly come together
You realize what your past made me sether
How much this world has taken
And the decisions you never should have maken
So when my world falls apart
And I am alone
I remember this is all I've ever known
This time the light came too close
I swore I wouldn't run
But A few steps back came all too naturally
And as the darkness comforted me
The light burnt my soul branding me with the memories of peace
Reminding me life doesn't need to be shattered to be fixed
And improvement is the hardest risk
Like waking up from an endless dream
My eyes snap open.
And I begin to walk over shatter glass
From broken memories of the past
As the pieces dig into my skin and blood begins to flow
I realize the past is only skin deep and its time to let it go
For shattered pieces of a broken life
Will eventually pass as I walk closer to the light
And the pain of yesterday
Will be remember as if it was someone else's life
For once I know I was always strong enough to win this fight
And the past was hard only because I had no future
So when the world falls apart look ahead
Because the light will come again
And remember the darkness not as you see
With the candle of the demons and forgotten memories
But as it truly is... A place of eternal darkness
Where no one can go and no one ever wants to be
There she is,
Lurking over the mountain.
Her sparkling hair,
Bright against the black cape.
There she is,
Her beauty that spreads from a fountain.
Like the hiss of the midnights air,
A new day gradually taking shape.
There she is,
But this time more dark.
Her light not so bright anymore,
A veil in front of her face.
There she is,
Her eyes without the spark.
The teardrops so unsure,
Now the magical night for a time replace.
There was a time when life was hard,
That I thought I would never get very far.
That was then, and this is now,
That for the first time I can say wow.
Now my life is on the right track,
That I hope I never go back.
I took the time to heal and now I feel I have won,
That in my heart and soul I am number one.
You never even saw him
as you lay soaking up the sun
tiptoeing with that bucket.
Six years old and out for fun.
The look of shock in your eyes
as the water broke your sleep
I laughed so much; sides ached
as from my eyes tears did weep.
You chased him round the garden
mock anger in your strides.
Always allowing him to escape,
giving him time to hide,
or at his birthday party
you dressed up like a clown.
All the other kids declared
"You're the bestest in the town"
Fake foam custard pies,
you faced them all the day,
never once did you cry "no more!"
"Bring it on", is all you'd say.
Rewinding all those memories
a playback to yesterdays
I live the future in the past
My present in disarray.
I remember it was a Winters day,
the snow had come early this year.
You had promised to go sledging,
our sons eyes shone with such revere.
I felt a little anxious
protectiveness, a lump in my throat
you held my hand with confidence,
your voice held that inspiring note.
"His time has come to learn to fly,
to take on the world outside.
You have taught him just and well,
now his instincts must be his guide."
I watched you both disappear,
into the white blanket, feathering down,
A nervous smile painted my lips
trying to wipe away this worried frown.
All day I kept myself busy
watching the time; so slow.
As night approached with shadows
I paced the floor, to and fro.
The knock came from nowhere,
startling my captured thoughts.
My mind racing, fractured ideas,
calm, hysteria, battled and fought.
two uniforms greeted my open door
eyes looking everywhere but at me
they had bad news. Two people had died.
The car left the road, wrapped round a tree.
My husband, my son, taken away
leaving me alone in my grief.
The spectre of death had paid us a call
stolen my family, a heartless thief.
Videotape memories don't replace whats real.
The tears, the laughter, all gone.
This house, no longer a welcome home.
My continuing life somehow just wrong.
As I slip into sleeping pill death
I hope the stories are true
that as I reach the doorway to heaven
there waiting will be my son and you.
Dont grow too fast
my little girl
stay as it was
"Our" world’ s a twirl
Your little houses
and cooking games
those cute blouses…
Just stay the same…
Dont grow too fast
it’s not what you think
stay as it was
Yought is just a blink…
Your highschool club
and little pains
your first ever love…
Please just stay the same…
When yesterdays are better days
I wish to wander different ways
To get back to my once before
And get back what I once ignored
Stale food and empty spaces
Until I am in present places
Get me back upon my plane
Through the tear I can’t explain
It came for those of us who slept
And crept up on the ones who wept
Chasing down the one who killed
The blind ambition that sent us chills
After we could eat again
Past reality just set in
They began to eat our present stage
Not seeing us through passing rage
The sky was gone within a second
No hand was offered us to lend
They ate the ground, the plants and trees
Crunching harshly with mindless ease
Start the plane and fly away
One won’t make it out of yesterday.
Based on the movie “The Langoliers”
I have felt the warmth of a smile
And also tasted the salt of tears;
Now & then, Every once in a while.
I?ve tried and failed a million times
I stumbled more than I ever walked.
I fumbled each time that I talked.
I have been hurt more than I could dare
I have cried much more than my share.
But I have also found love and laughter,
I've learnt when there is pain,
Joy comes tumbling after
All along the way I always knew,
That if I wanted it enough, I could too,
Triumph my biggest fears,
If only I got up each time I fell,
If I never gave up trying to speak,
No matter what others tell,
I am not going to be weak.
Because I figured- Life; it is such,
Sometimes it?s a harsh blow,
Sometimes it?s a loving touch.
Peace or violence, with humans you never know,
When love will sprout or when seeds of hatred will be sown,
When in humanity & compassion people may find satiety,
Or when the lust to kill will choke up all their pity.
The bitterness in the human heart is like a patch of rust,
More the time you provide for it to go but spread all over it must,
For all the time inadvertently it is exposed & encouraged by all,
Till it begins to loom bigger than the source which started it all.
Peace, harmony & brotherhood prevail in times of trouble,
Which in the company of like men seems to disappear like a bubble,
It is true that in times of need often united they stand,
And peace regales on this Earth as the people live hand in hand.
But at times mad violence destructs this harmony & peace,
Fear & terror of its outcome each person’s face does it kiss,
Someplace this hatred reaps for someplace it had been sown,
And try as you might it never seems destructed however often it is stoned.
But sometimes love overcomes this hatred sown so long,
And love itself sways the people with its lovely song,
And acts of love are done worldwide to make other humans aware,
That love alone may be able to remove all traces of hatred.
Humanity & compassion exist in traces forever,
But it needs a huge catastrophe to make its presence felt all over,
And then unbelievable acts of humanity & kindness are done,
By risking one’s own life to save that of a fellow human.
However merciless killing sometimes throws away this compassion,
When over petty matters are evoked unnecessary flood of emotions,
When sentiments are hurt over religion, creed & caste,
Their intensity provokes acts that threaten to drain away humanity at last.
All this is nothing but the result of a turbulence of emotions,
That creates a cyclone in human heart with vigor & aggression,
Come rain, come storm; keep only love, humanity, peace, compassion & kindness,
& wash away if you can from this human heart all hatred, violence, enemity & bitterness…
The pain i got hurts so bad. Why is there misery in my life. I think it's because you hurt me
so deeply. You dont understand why i need you back. It's because i love you more than
words can say. I have o idea why you lied saying you dont love me but its time to end the
misery you have caused for me. My life is going to go great with or without you. i need you
beside me but now its to late, but even though as you say you dont love me anymore, i
know you do, or you wouldn't be there for me through my hard times, but that witch has a
spell on you that cant be broken, even though you love her, my time is to be gone from your
mind. But im going to love you no matter what because you were mine from the start.
i still love you jordan
Everytime i get ready to leave
I start getting anxity because I 'm going to miss you guys more than you can believe,
Even if it's just for a short amount of time when I go, I still miss you everyday I;m gone and more than you know.
Your more than just my grandparents, Your like my mother and father and my bestfriend it's not going to be easy to go when that shuttle bus arrives I can't even pretend , My love for you guys is so strong it will never end
You guys are my everything,Without you I would have nothing,To my heart you are my Queen and King
Only for a short amount of time I will be away,But it's hard because I'm use to seeing you everyday,On my mind you stay therefor it keeps me going and I'll be okay
I Love You Grandma and Papa see you when I get back ,You two are so special to me dont ever forget that my heart is home where you guys are at
every once in awhile, i wonder how you're doing
every once in awhile, the thought goes right through me
every now and then, i have a fond memory
every now and then, i remember you were in fact the enemy
every once in awhile i think about the birth of our child
every once in awhile it stings,but it's oh-so mild
every once in awhile i remember the first time we made love
every once in awhile i recall praying to the stars above
when you put me down,insulted me,always brought me to tears
when you shook me,choked me,slapped me,poked me for 3 whole years
every once in awhile i remember how it was to be so timid
every now and then i think my god he really did it
every once in awhile, i miss you,yes this is true
but only every now and then you see,you cannot make me blue
every once in awhile i have good memories and want to cry
but then i remember how the majority of our time was and me just wanting to die
every once in awhile i wonder what would have happened if we'd stayed
i make myself keep on working ive to i got to get paid
every now and then i see a handsome,sweet,moral guy
that i left in my past,and flew right by,and then i wonder why
but if im honest with myself,which is sometimes hard to do
you and i were oil and water,and we both knew it true
you were agressive,i was submissive,that is a lethal combonation
i was a girl,you were a man,who knew what to say,i was taken
so yes.every once in while i miss you.
id be lying if i said it wasnt so.
but the truth of the matter,i had to do..
i had to make you go
sometimes i think of you with positive memories,but thats mostly for our child
now and then i forget all the misery
but thats only every once in awhile
I heard the mist of autumn as it whispered to the sun
'tis time to paint the summer,another season has begun
Then The Author of the universe,like thunder here below
announced to summer's ember,it's time for you to go
Set the trees ablaze with color,another season has begun
and blend them with the heavens beneath the midnight sun
Whatever be the reasons,within each heart we know
as like the mighty rivers,all life through time must flow
Then I heard the fading summer,as it whispered to the sun
my yesterdays have passed away,another season has begun!
Staring down at the blue water
Smell the salt air
The climb to the top was almost too much to bare
Closing your eyes remembering wading in the freezing water
Wondering if this was the end of your life
Arms extending as your heart takes flight
Feeling your feet about to slip
But in his arms you will never slip
Your weight shifts as your heart begins to pound
Now you remember the fall
You remember the wind sweeping past your face
As no sound could escape your lungs.
Accept the fall.
Knowing his arms were not strong enough to keep you from the waters below
The nights spent crying as you felt your heart dying
Cold water froze a beating heart
In an instant warmth wraps around you
Strength pulls you in
As words whisper so softly you swear it was the wind
Beautiful darling, you can only fall towards me
Eyes widen to find the deep cold sea
As far down as it ever could be
You lean into him, feeling the warmth of the sun above
Enjoying every moment, every smile, and every second look
For the first time in a long time
You no longer fear the sea below
You no longer wait for the pain
For the day may come where you are freezing in the waters
But after a climb unlike the rest
Your lungs will fill with the warmest breath
And a love that will be your best
Holding on to years
Gone by kneeling pleading
To the younger years for what would
Be a broken future
Poor broken dreams
Poor me nothing to show
For all the hard work
Minimum wage for no knowledge
Drop out sweaty for head tired feet
Head so heavy to rest
Poor broken dreams
No way to see come true
Same cycle spinning like a web
Of mistakes a little to late to learn
As time is racing against me
Is no wonder I am stuck
In this would be dream
Poor me nothing to show
Reliving the would be dream
Feeling sorry for a bad out bringing
For the weakness no drive so easy to give up
And not try
Just getting by day by day
Pay check to pay check
With nothing to show for the hard work
Half a life time dream to proud to beg
Head held high for trying to make
A dollar out of fifty cents
Bad choices coast a life time of broken dreams relived
There are reasons why old men
Never accomplish what they intended;
Grass mowed, buttons sewed,
Weeds pulled and fences mended.
It's a conspiracy of time
Making failures of us all
As life becomes unwound while we are slowing down
And time speeds up for that last long haul.
The lists become longer
The clock hands move faster
And try a we might it soon become quite
Evident time is our master.
by E. Marshall Evans
when people ask me , why don't you try hard to impress people.
i simply tell them this..
when you smile all the time = your to happy all the time
when your sad = your depressing and not fun to be around
you dont have a boyfriend = your square
you have a boyfriend = your a slut
you have one friend = your a loser
you have more then one friend = your trying to hard to be popular
you act a little silly = your imature
you try to be marture about everything = your boring
you dont try hard in school = your a loser
your try hard in school = your a nerd
you love your family = your weird
you tell people about your family problems = your seeking attention all the time
you simply cant impress everyone. and everyone has something to say about your appearence , the way you walk , talk , smile , shrug.. ect.
so i will simply say to you all.. do not try and impress people.. its okey to try hard,.
to talk about your social life around others . and if they have something to say... tell them to simply go away..
All I got is my life and a dream
Just as hard as it may seem
Everyday i'm coming up with a different scheme
Every time I turn around it some different mess
Thanking god for every bless
Too thristy to rest
This is a dream i'm takeing from my soul
Its my time to make the dice role
Talk about me so
Too real to be knocked down
Just know this is my time around
Get ready for a different sound
This is a dream i'm going to make happen
The season is now or never
I had this feeling since forever
This a taste I will forever savor
leaves fall as swiftly as the wind blows threw my hair
the cold breeze brings out the goose bumps
the wet leaves stick to my memory as fondly as they stick to me
losing track of time as dad pulls me out of the leaf pile
we exchange smiles for the last time before
i had back to reality
once loved, lost ,found again , lost again .. ...

Hands and feet shackled
You are traped and can't get out
Doing time away from me and our son
Love, god,and our son is making you strong
You are in place you don't want to be
I miss you like crazy
The life we was going to have we will have in time
You are sick of that place
You have to keep a low profile
How can we deal with this
I'm not going to cry because I can't anymore
I am going to be strong for you and our son
I feel like my hands and feet are shackled too but not in that way
I am in love with you and in the love prison
Think about a special place and me
We can be in the love prison together
We will be together in time in the love prison
I can't wait til you get out of the other prison
I still love you
I have your back til the day I die
I am not going to leave you
I am never going to leave this love prison that we are in
Prison Song/Love Prison
For my Husband Antwan Woodberry I love you Baby
they are very different .you like to spend time with them.enjoy life with
them.your family will always be there for you.
When I sit back and think
I realise it all doesn't have
The money we work so hard for
The children we strive so hard
to bring up
The friends we try so hard to
keep up with
Oh! How short life is
Not enough time to make
Not enough time to have fun
Knowing at the back of your
That it could end anytime
So beautiful and peaceful
Yet dangerous and evil
Is it a beautiful or ugly life?
We might just sit back
And wish our dreams true
All our visons and goals
We would wish, dream and
But there's not enough time as..
Life is short!
All I’d like to say is
Being me like being you isn’t easy
Crying, caring on, calling on
Dog on near anybody
Easily, evil or equally
Far out of me
Gassed, as I am
Halt! Who are you?
“I’m daughter of eve, and you are a mere
Jester of leave, so
Kindly remove your hand from my sleeve”
My being me like you is fascinating
Time will tell if
War you will
Your life of mine, after
Zen will come bursting in
Whats this love for? Is it worth it this time?
Are you gonna break my heart?
Are you truly gonna be mine?
Guys will say anything behind those jail walls , but
the sad thing is I wouldn't believe you even if you
weren't in jail at all.
You've done some horrible things Bobby.
You truly broke my heart.
When I lost you my whole damn world feel apart.
I'm not saying that to make you feel bad.
I'm saying that cause when I lost my whole world got sad.
I'm not perfect never have been but , I truly loved you
and still remained your friend.
Now 7 years later the same words you once said.
I love you Megan , I need you so bad.
The sound of your voice is still the same and hidden in your words are lies.
Things are different this time. I'm not the same girl.
If you try to play games with me I promise I will get the highest score.
I won't fall for it this time I'm mean it I do.
I won't let another guy put me threw what you put me threw , not even you.
If you love me we can hold each other threw all this bad weather.
We can get threw it together , but if you hurt me its gonna be bad.
Not trying to sound mean but my pride is all that I have.
I promise to love you & be there till the end , and if *****gets to
deep I promise to remain your friend.
I hope you do the same , but I hope even more you mean what your saying.
Just be honest Bobby thats all I ask. If you do that I willing to let go of the past.
I wont bring it up no more , if you can show me there's a reason I fell in love with you.
I want to know there is love behind all this pain we've been threw.
If you can do that then the sun will truly shine , and the gas is greener on the other side.
Most of I will be your everything and you'll be mine.
I'll love and cherish you and when you do time I'll do time.
Like Bonnie & Clyde if you show me you love me , I'll ride or die.
To the end of time , you could be the only man that's on my mind.
That's precious. Getting me to say some *****like that is a blessing.
I hope you learned your lesson. Your 34 I hope your ready to man up , and be all
that you can be and more. You owe to it yourself but even more to your kids.
You need to show them their dad's not as bad as everyone says he is.
I know together we can make it. If I didn't it would be heartbreak that I'm risking
So please hear my words their is more to life than trying to put yourself in the dirt.
Stand up and realize what your worth I want you to love yourself and remember I
loved you first.
I looked in the mirror
Life was drawing on my face
Happiness and sorrows
My own moments
Lost in time
Dug in my skin.

This story goes as follows back when I was 19 a hot boy
my vision it was hollow she was 17 the sweetest girl that I
ever met, we wrote each other poetry but she never knew
the real me or rather the me who I was when I wasn't
with her how I was drowning in sin slowly trying to clean
up my mess like a swiffer but despite the street life I was
never the type to mistreat any woman so I choose to
break it off....a few months later I got knocked off and the
whole time I was down I was trying to get back what I
had lost...the sweetest girl I ever knew I dropped her off
because the street life came before her so emotionally I
was singing the blues, trying to find her, I went to places
where we met and hung out @ hoping to find the one
that was so right for me but I was the one who went left
now I'm a wreck...so I let it go. I always told myself if we
met up again I would told her what happened to me and
its 8yrs later she's single so am I and her feelings haven't
changed for me, feels like a movie right it has to end in an
happily ever after we spent some time together and I
know now no other woman could make me feel how she
does new chapter and no other woman matters...long
story short we're taking it one day @ a time and I no
longer have to wonder or day dream what if she was
mine true story.
Outside your window
a withard horse
has no strength or ambition
to finish its coarse
but what shes accomplished is more then enough
when it comes her time , shes had it to rough
until her last breath she will do her best
or is it not enough that she's given her life to please you
never once stepped on your toes always listen to your commands
jumped the highest fences , applied herself to every demand
stood in the pouring rain to prove she was strong enough
worked in scortching heat just because you asked her to
but maybe its time you set her free
to stride in the sunset to her own fantasy
relieve her of the reins you held down on her neck
and insted of dirt let her run in the medows
Give her a life she hasn't yet experienced
let her no her work is done
and that she has done well
let her now run <3
WHEN I GOT STABBED
The blade went through my flesh like a knife through melting butter.
Thoughts ran through my head as I bled out, like no more will I see my mother
Anger and rage streamed through my veins so I didnt feel the pain.
Im on my way to my car and get into the passenger seat.
My girlfriend Sareina runs to the other side, I hear the thud of her feet.
Getting into my car was quite a task, it was lower and
close to the ground.
Time seems to freeze as my are starts to throb and my head
begins to pound.
I hear the car turn over and roars to life, as I sit there and
mine drains out.
As were driving I look around me and see the crimson splatters
I hear my mom on the phone asking my big brother Rikki
whats the matter.
He hears the trembling in her voice and doesnt know what to say .
He said mom Evin got stabbed but dont worry he'll be okay.
Sareina swerves through traffic trying not to crash.
I lift my blood soaked shirt and remove it from the gash,
She sees the slice in my wrist, panice and begins to scream.
At the time it didnt seem real, like a fable or some bad dream.
She pushes the pedal to the floor, the engine gets louder and louder.
Already in motion the car lunges forward releasing all its power,
My fingers go numb and my hand beging to follow.
Sitting there in a pool of blood its getting harder to swallow
we make it to the hospital, skidding in front of the door.
I open my attempt to get out, but almost fall to the floor.
Rikki and Sareina help me as I stumble into the lobby.
My blood soaked cloths send velvet liquid dripping down my body.
As I stand there among the rukus and comotion,
My mind seems to fade away no worries or emotions.
I woke up in the back on a table I hear singing,
A womans soft angelic voice this cant be real I must be dreaming
Extreme amounts of pain let me know that this is real
the singing nurse says welcome back with a smile like it was no big deal.
We cant get the bleeding to stop so we had to give you more
I hear sobbing so I turn my head and try to focus on the door,
the crying was coming from my mom who was sitting by my side.
The doctors tell her that theres a problem and were going for a ride,
we dont have surgeons here to help you.
Sounding hopelss and exhausted she sighed, we've done all we can do.
We're sending you to Portland, they'll make you good as new.
Falling in and out of consciousness, we reach our destination.
On the verge of giving up hearing family say stay strong, gives me motivation.
Getting rushed off the ambulance and seeing my loved ones tears
made me feel more strength, but striked some sudden fear.
Like will I make is through the day to see them smile again,
Or is this my time to go will this be my end.
Later I awoke to see everyones relieved and anxious smile,
I asked how long I've been out it seemed like quite a while.
My mom said you've been under for a couple days,
you've had two surgeries but dont worry both of them went okay.
I closed my eyes and smiled to myself I'm thankful the angles heard me pray.
By Evin cruz
Take my hand through heaven time and space.
There is a little path we could take.I'll be there
by your side.Just show me the way.Take my
hand through heaven time and space.There
is a little path we could take.I will be there in
time,just wait and see.
I m just a small town country
girl and I guess i cant complain,
Even when everything seems
so wrong and I feel like i'm
I know that crazy feeling wont
hang around that long,
Cause the people in my family
help me relize that i am strong,
So when you think that uve hit
rock bottom and ur livin life in
U just gotta take the time to
look around and u'll always find
a way out,
Its the lil things that matter
most , these lil things people
dont take time to see,
Could be the only thing in this
world that will ever set you
We , again
"It", not mine
quit , again
To be continued....
When life throws you stones
You brake it down and make sand castles
When the water comes to wash away
the clouds to make room for a rainbow
When you walk leaving foot prints as time
Passes buy you come to realize no one can
Step into your shoes
When you think no one has been there
They have and done that just not in the
When you start to tare down the walls
And the halls start to close you in to keep
You locked in a past so dark you can not
See the door look for the light for its sight
Will set you free
When people start to change its time to brake
Off the friend ship chain
When family say they got your back
But not standing behind you
You tend to fall on your own
When the one you love try so hard
But just cant get it there is just no way of finding it
When the string brakes the chain of thought is gone
Have you asked your self when has any our anything
Gone your way our pretended to stay
Maybe at your out most worst day
wouldn’t you might say
When all is said and done at the end of the day
Is in front of you here and now not when
Kiss the ill fated...
fruit of the devil...
steal the mark...
of the water scar...
for tonight....we've sinner...
cover the young...
the fate keepers...
the young Scottish...
I'm in need.....
First we start out, little and small
Over the first few years we learn to act alone
Relatively life was amazing
Ever so slowly we turn to bigger kids
Very carefully we go through elementary school
Everyone was so naive, so friendly
Ready to grow up yet?
You turn into a teen, and everyone is growing older
October never was the same again for us
Ugly, a word used and abused
Now in college your life goes by fast, you have kids, a life
God knows when we will experience what we had, youth.
You and me are as one
As one we are never apart
Your love for me is never gone
our son is apart of us and we are apart him
We have a strong bond and strong love
when we are married we will have a stronger love and bond
We will not let anyone come between us
I will help you in you time of need
You will help me in my time of need
You are that special man that I can come to when I am down and when I am
You and I get better in time
I am down for you like you are down for me
Thats how it has to be Us as one
Us As One
For Antwan Woodberry I Love You Baby
Your roomate had called me late
And told me that you were not
I hopped in my car and made my
Not telling you I'd be there the next
You then called me during my drive,
And asked me when I would arrive,
how'd you know I was going to
You told me because you knew your
You said that the paramedics had
come and gone,
And that they told you there wasn't
So we cracked a few jokes as we
You gave me your love I said I love
How could I know that would be the
Time that we talked the night that
I would have never hung up the
Knowing that you would leave all
I would have drove faster not
stopped to rest,
Would have held your hand told you
your the best.
The minister asked me to put pen to
And write a few stories about my
So I began writing of things in past
But the pen wouldn't work paper
covered with tears,
So I just told him a bit about you,
And he told me that that would do,
We then had your service now that
was a sight,
From the rich to the homeless you
must of done right,
To have such a variation of freinds,
Who stood beside you right to the
I prayed, then I cried then I started
As people told stories on your behalf,
So then we went out to celebrate
Myself, your daughter, her man and
As I now type this poem, some time
has gone by,
And i pause, and take time to dab
my teary eyes.
Cause you touched so many in your
And the screen looks so hazy, eyes
filling with tears,
In your life you gave me so much
Love you Dad- rest in peace
It was some time ago
when dark cloud appeared
to give me sad news.
"There is no love for you," it said.
Heart couldn't understand what took place.
The truth of love and great feelings
were only a nice warmth, touching my face.
And that wind was forever gone.
We hear from all sides.
"The time will heal," everybody says.
"All broken hearts will embrace
blue and clear sky again."
I hope to see promised blue sky
and singing birds in the trees soon.
Only thinking of you
as the most beautiful dream I lived too
The first time we made love I cried and I was in heaven
When I first seen you I fall Head over hills in love with you
The first time we kissed and I milted
You are the first man that I loved that loved me back
We had our problems in the passed but we made it through them
We had our first big fight for the first time but it made us stronger then ever
Six year together and sill going strong
You and I are one and will be for Thirty six more years to come
The first day you gave me the ring I fall in love with you all over again
You are the first man that I would ride or die for
You are like a drug habit I get so high when I am with you
We are closer now then we ever was
For the first time when I am in you are I feel Safer then ever
You are the first am that I talk about getting marred to
When that day comes I will feel like I am falling in love for the first time
When we make love it feels like we are making love for the first time
I never want to hart you
You are the love of my life
I will cater to your every need
Any thing you need me to do I will do
You also make me feel like a real woman
To Antwan I love you so much
A spoken art
Trace it's steps from the paper to my heart
A rush from my mind to my soul then to the pen
I embrace this gift that from time to time lifts
my weeping soul form pain as i gain
strength to carry on
Just as a new life is being born
Provokes a new sprit's bells to joyfully ring
Every mountain side will hear it's sing
Poetry is to me as nurture is to family
Making my dreams a reality
non fiction to fiction
wrong to right
day to night
Sometimes I argue with my mind
Only to find a new creation
My routine eats at me day after
day it's always the same time
for some change a different
light a different perspective a
different world it's a damn
shame how this time of year is
suppose to be the happiest but
for some odd reasons all I see
is misery hatred rudeness and
people wonder why this is my
least favorite time of year
what's the point broken family
in a broken home never really
been the same see happiness
and it depresses me wondering
if I will ever experience that I'm
a cross between misunderstood
and confused I want to enjoy
the holidays but why something
bad always happens this time a
year I lose a friend a friendship
dies family members fight the
true meaning of christmas it's
not Santa Claus it's not
presents its happiness
forgiveness family and friends
and all I wanna do is be as far
away from everyone as I can
no one needs to see my
sadness or feel my pain
I once knew this girl that yearned to be loved; not just because she treated people like they were the world, but just because... I once knew a child that started to abuse herself; she drastically changed her style, and threw away her wealth... I tried to tell her she was special, and that pain wasn't pleasure; that her family loved her and I loved her too, and to God she was a rare treasure... I once knew this girl who lost her best friend and changed, she would cry all the time in secret; she became suicidal and deranged, she was filled with regret... One day I told her to look to heaven, and she would find the truth; that she was forgiven; not just blood but red also represents LOVE and it was time for her to dislike being blue... I once knew this girl who wanted abundant sisters and brothers, since hers were taken away; because they had different mothers, I told her she would find more one day... I told her to never lose Love again, and stay focused on GOD; that I promised to be her new best friend, and to push even more when her future gets hard... She is I, and I am she; and that’s why, I LOVE regardless what they do to me... Now, that’s my testimony; wow, to GOD be the Glory!
It's been a long time coming, it's been you this whole
time the one that I been wanting, before I remember
when it felt like I couldn't find the keys to the vault of
your heart, but you never gave up on the possibilities of
us and I never took that lost, the clock is still ticking and
that can only mean our time is almost here, it's going
closer I can feel it the wait is almost over and I'm excited
about the future, the best is still yet to come, that three
strand rope held us together this many years so let Gods
will be done, you seen me go from this one and that one
so you approach with caution but there's nothing about
you I can't or won't accept so there's no need for me to
let anymore water leak from this faucet
A hit and run in your side of the hood
You celebrate because the one hit was trashy and no good
But someone at one time loved this lifeless scum
It is a dog eat dog society never sharing the crumbs
No ambulance chasers come around
Nothing here in this castle but thorny crowns
Somewhere out there, paradise must exist
Nobody claims the victim, another Jane Doe on the Morgue's list
Surviving the streets is another dimension
Out in the open there is so much tension
Trying to figure out a way out of this type of life
Not wanting to resort to the barrel or the blade of a knife
The dumpsters sometimes provide the food you need
Five are homeless, so many to feed
Who knows Detroit, Chicago, New York or LA
There are more out there than the Government puts on display
Very few shining moments, piled on by zero glory
This is a tragic all too familiar story
It all falls under a street wise democracy
Behind a Government that feeds on hypocracy
Keep the inflation and poverty at an all time high
It is easy for the President to hit the mute button on financial remote control to
silence their cries
M - mind controlling
Y - young teens raped
S - sell your soul.
P - peole can see you myspace
A - addiction
C - controlls!
E - energy waister
M - my friends are there
Y - youngster love it
S - stops boredom
A - acctually can be fun
C - chatting
E - empty head, gets filled up.
If I could love you like I want,
You would find these distances too small...
If I could send you lovely roses,
You would have no place to keep them all.
Every night when I dream, I see we are miles apart.
Every time when I scream, I find you far from heart.
If I could fly and reach you when I like,
There would be no second time to fly.
If I could have you once in my life,
I would have no regrets when I die.
Every night when I dream, I see we are miles apart.
Every time when I scream, I find you far from heart.
If I could tell you what I feel,
You would have nothing else to know.
If I could live without a soul,
I would have enjoyed rain and snow.
Every night when I dream, I see we are miles apart.
Every time when I scream, I find you far from heart.
If I could paint a new world for us,
We never would have to be alone.
If forgetting you was any easy,
I would have changed my nerve and bone.
Every night when I dream, I see we are miles apart.
Every time when I scream, I find you far from heart.
But this won’t make me love you any less,
I will be your guy, you will be my lass.
I will love you forever and forever...forever and forever.
There was a time when I knocked at Hell’s door
Didn’t think nothing about it just walked through and explored
Was introduced to a lot, saw a lot of people with smiling faces
I walked by them, they whispered behind my back but remained nameless
I saw a friend of mine that I remembered at one time she had nothing
I gave her opportunity and love and a chance, and I was face to face with her she must have forgotten because she started fronting
Kept on walking until I ran into this dude I once knew, we talked for a while until his lies started to sound like truth
The longer I walked the more I saw, I was beginning to compare it to this life, but I wasn’t surprised at all
I ran into my best friend WAIT!? Why was she here? She knew all my secrets she is my heart I can’t believe this, I was overcome by a sudden fear
When we was in conversation nothing change it seem like any other, Then the more I listened she became transparent this time there was no running for cover
I recognized the liar, the cheater, and this mask she wore to gain attention; I stopped her in her tracks and told her to listen
I already walked through the gates of hell there is no longer a reason to lie, I gave my honest opinions and loved you like I love my own life
To my surprise she walked away without a comment, I understand because that’s why in Hell the soul is already burning.
When I walked back through the same door I entered, I realized a lot but I couldn’t be offended.
I went to the mirror to examine myself, I had some things I need to fix and yeah I could use the help
That walk help me point out my faults in me, back to reality but I can only change me
It rains at night
When everyone is sleep
In the morning
when the light peeks
The sun shines
As if everything is fine
Noone has to know
About the night time
That the thunder is the pain
And the storm is to blame
But in the day everything is fine
No rain just sunshine
Noone has to know
That at night time
The rain falls
The thunder roars
Brings the storm
Thinkin can't handle one more
But day peeks
here for one more
Suddenly I see now
Let me take a bow
An extraordinary encore to the first chapter
Look at the before and after
Listen to the birth of common sense
I learn as the ignorance begins to rinse
Momma told it'll be days like this
I laugh at the simple thigs I miss
Suddenly it's all starting to come together
practice makes better
Grandma told me there's more room on the outside
Than the inside
Suddenly I see
The sun, going about her daily chores,
glimpses a new star in the sky,
one smaller than herself,
yet strangely familiar.
Used to catching her image first in puddles,
then growing larger in lakes,
she at first only sees a stranger,
then catches herself
spread in the moon's reflection
across thousands of miles of sky.
Hypnotized by the beauty
of this strange new view of herself,
she can't ignore it,
sneaking looks time after time;
she can't take her eyes off herself.
Daily, as the moon moves about in the sky,
the sun catches tantalizing glimpses
of herself from multiple angles.
By then, the sun imagines herself to have
the moon's full attention,
claiming it as her mirror.
Like Snow White's wicked stepmother,
the sun asks this mirror repeatedly,
methodically, almost hypnotically,
"Who is the fairest of them all?"
The moon answers all questions
bringing the sun back time and again,
puppet on a string
seeking a definitive answer.
By day, the moon untangles
its strings of moonlight,
puts out its nets.
Their dialog moves sideways;
the sun's questions, always direct,
glance off the moon;
the moon's answers slip around behind it
as the sun tries to get a better look
at what the moon might be saying.
Who was created in whose image?
Which came first,
the chicken, the egg, or the yolk,
small sun caught up in the quicksilver lies
Only time can save
me from my torment
the time you gave me
the time we spent
has all vanished
into the past
the future looks
grim and not too
when the sun is up
time for the day
when the moon is out
time for night
in which i lay upon
my bed and weep
bitter tears of
sorrow bitter tears
of my hearts love
bitter tears i have
cried so much its
when will the sun
shine for me
when will daylight
when will my heart
be set on the right
i dwell upon the
time we where
it is engraved upon
i search for the
time when it will
not be dark
in it you are whom i
walking away over
and over crushing my
in time i hope to
escape the dark
When I first heard you were dying all I was doing was crying I thought my life was over even though your gone to some people just know im not one of them forever in my heart even after dark you will be in my heart even though it’s been seven months I miss u so much I pray every night hoping we will reunite I still ask god why me I feel like I’m just to young and depressed cry cry that’s all I do is cry can’t you see the tears comin out of my eyes I wish I could lay down and die but it’s not my time lord tell my grandma one thing for me when it’s my time to come home she would be there to take my hand!! Imiss u grandma R.I.P much luv from the family
There is a place that I will never eat at again
I look back at the nightmare when I was ten
Back then not much of a strong stomach to endure what I did
This horror I couldn't keep hid
First of all, you know that back then, when they used the fly tape
It was full of its intended guests and dangling three inches from our plates
Some were buzzing and squirming to get free
The scene was already getting the best of me
Welcome to the eatery that leaves you emotionally drained
The name of it is Ketchup Stains
One paper napkin issued to you as you walk in the door
If your table is not ready, you sit on a dirt floor
Sometimes you see a bug or two
It is almost as if the bugs are not afraid of you
Everyone shares the same utensils and paper plate
That is why with multiple orders, you take turns eating, while other family
As you sit impatiently suffering from hunger pains
The place is crowded, with free bathroom admission at Ketchup Stains
You ask the waitress to refill the glass for you daughter
You watch as she dips the glass in the Horse Trough to get the water
You ask the waitress where is the ice
She says when that table there is empty, you can have theirs, now won't that be
I ask her why do we have to share, this is insane
She says, this is all part of our hospitality at Ketchup Stains
I tell her don't expect a tip for your service
She says give me a reason to modify your food and make you nervous
I tell her it's time we go, cancel the food
She asks where did I grow up and become so rude
We have a history of everyone leaving happy, no one complains
Ya'll come back soon, share a spoon and enjoy some family time at Ketchup
By the time we left there, we had a car full of hate
It bothered us so much, that night, we took flight and moved to another state
I don’t know what’s going on or what I did wrong.
I tell myself I don’t miss you, but I can’t deny the truth.
I think of you every time- every time our song comes on.
And every time I hear your name, I remember nothing’s the same.
It’s starting to become clear, I don’t really need you here.
Things were better with you around, like how I felt safe and sound.
But the truth is, you’re gone now. so why don’t you take a bow;
It doesn’t matter what we’ve been through, my heart still belongs to you.
And I don’t know what’s going on, ‘cause without you everything’s wrong.
one childs young, the other old
tommorow I hope they work together as they grow
my oldest kisses the youngest on the head
if I teach him well he will show his young brother without fail
tommorow brings another day, not sure whats in the details of the day
I'm sure days will come when they will fight,but in the end when we
are gone.They will make up in time!
My hope is for the 2 familys left between the boys to intwine plus
teach the teachings that we have left behind.
We teach one time for a generations effects with a change here and their
to make the time spent the best.
I love my boys, cheers to a good future and happy and healthy families!
THE HINGE OF HISTORY
The hinge of history swings in all directions
As the happenings of the past are written down.
Out of all that has occurred since man's beginnings,
Less has been recorded than waits to be found.
Babylonians kept chronicles of history,
Hebrews wrote the past as a dramatic story.
Greeks had no faith in the future at all,
Believing mans repeated errors doom his glory.
Christians added a new dimension to history,
Looking forward to Christ’s return to earth.
An on going drama involving man and God,
Believing all are created of equal worth.
Some have asked why must we study history;
It just encourages us to live in the past.
When we forget history we repeat its mistakes,
As the outcome of humanity is cast.
By Tom Zart
How was I supposed to know,
That that window would be gone?
The day that I looked out last time
Blows in the wind like a song.
The things I would see outside,
Now can no longer be seen.
Now it's a happy memory,
Existing inside of me.
Now there is just a white wall,
Covering that empty space.
And when I go to look out of it,
The plaster touches my face.
The green grass and rolling hills,
The flowers that brightly glow,
All the happy little critters,
I'm sure they're still there, I know.
Even though I can't see them,
Unless I go out the door.
But it will never be the same to me,
'Till I look through the window once more.
As I sit here
feeling my own pity
selfishly thinking of myself
knowing good and well
cursing brutal words
wanting to flow from my quill
angry exhaustion filling my mind
yet battered heart slowly continues
to beat upon
the next morn...
instead of thankfully getting up
getting ready for the gift of this day
instead of being grateful
instead i turned away
already worrying about tomorrow
about things that have yet to come
instead of trusting You
to love me enough...
to give me enough strength
for the battles i face
knowing our fates were decided
an eternity ago
by the one holding
times swinging pendulum
had wings of palest gold
like the sparking yellow
of campfires flame
or a fireplace offering
welcoming warm blaze
his tall staff also of gold
held in strongest hands
through that haze
through fog of white of gray
reminding us of thunderstorms
months of May
mayhap He was a vision
maybe i shall never know
if twas another dream
relief would course through
for He said last eve
tis almost time to go
He whispered with that loving grace
words heard inside my heart
telling me to enjoy this life
for too soon twill be time
Although i am sure i would love heaven
and i have loved ones there i dearly miss
can i please stay here awhile longer Lord
i feel i still have plenty to give
my heart is pure
only meaning the best
through you i will try to reach them
with a gift of words
in which you blessed
I once thought this day would never come, but now that is here I’m sad and glad
that this day is here.
I’m glad because I accomplished high school and I’m moving on to bigger and
I’m glad because I grow up here, I made lots of friends and met lots of
interesting people too.
I’m glad because I leave so many members here.
I’m glad because I had fun here and laugh and cried and just joked around here.
I’m glad because I never thought I would graduate from here and now that this
day is here I’m glad but sad because I’m scared of getting out of here.
I’m scared of not making it on my own scared because this time I'm on my own
I’m sad because there are so many members I leave here.
I’m sad because I know that I’m not going to see my friends like before.
I’ sad because I’m not a kid no more now I’m a growing person that’s on his
I’m sad because it’s going to be hard not seeing my friends everyday like before.
I’m sad because time is passing so fast and not slow but I’m glad because I
have lots of members inside and as I move on these members well live on.
I just hope as time passes by my friends remenber me like I well remenber
them, I hope all there dreams come true because I know when you want
something and you work hard for it, it well come true.
High school has been a great experience for me. I know as time passes by I well
remenber the good times and bad times I had in high school.
The knowledge I learned to go to college, the experiences I experienced but this
is just one experience of many to come.
Today my life starts from this day on and today on this day I thank everyone that
helped me through out my school years.
Thank you for not giving up on me, thank you in believing in me but specially I
thank my parents for being there for me for guiding me to the right path for telling
me that learning is the right path to a better future and a better why of life thank
you for making me into a better person thank you with all my heart. Thank you
pull off the sheets, throw an old tshrit on , slam the front door , time for a new day .smile for the camera , doesn't matter if its fake . or if your life is a mistake .walk down the street , fall flat on your face .pick your self back up . time for a retry.watch as they walk by ,you act all shy .talk in your head , dont let them hear what you said .close you eyes , make a wish , just the feel of those lips .hold your own hand , as you walk through the sand . alone. no sounds , just peace .i wish it would last , but its all your just in my head . i allow all the words that you said , to dance all around my body like music , why do they hurt .your words are not needles yet send pain through my skin .reach for your hand , when you are no where near .sit on the edge of the rock , watch the tide pull back .what do i lack ?stand tall , the wind will blow . stand your ground be very proud.the sky will stay blue ,the clouds will alway move .but you , will you always be you ?
You saved me and our boys
when you count the matchsticks
you might think you came out
on the side that don't flick
And so we fight
You love a slightly unbalanced wife
you endure an unbalanced checkbook
you live a life that keeps you breathing
a life based on a chance you took
But you were right
And I was there
My Dickson Street ,now
is so urban, sad, bare
I miss my Nasty Dickson Street
where I roamed without a care
We hoped, knew not to hurt another
we were all hurt, in a way
Spencer, he drank coffee, drew my feet
He gave me love and a different way
I miss those times
when I see
My own child
with the same thoughts
of being me
I’m trying to forget you but this love I feel for you won’t let me forget about you.
I’m trying to forget you but every time I think of something I think of you.
I’m trying to forget you but when I go to sleep you’re in my dreams and it’s harder
to forget you.
I’m trying to forget you but every time I see you makes me think more about you.
I’m trying to forget you but every time you talk to me make's me not want to forget
I’m trying to forget you but your beauty won’t let me forget you.
I’m trying to forget you but every time you’re close to me I forget that I’m trying to
I’m trying to forget you because I’m falling more in love with you.
I’m trying to forget you because you don’t love me like I love you.
Shag haircuts and music
Memaw teaching me how to make a bed
Marilyn, sharin a cookie and a secret
and books so eagerly read
Sittin in trees, a hot breeze
pickin the scabs off my skinned knees
Skulkin and wantin to know
what said around the kitchen table
"whats goin on?!!"
hearin pieces but not quite able
playin in the woods
had my first kiss
now I'm sneakin out the window
caught, grounded for life
sneakin but not not able
to fool my mom
was always knowin what I was up to
was always saving me
was always talking to me like I had sense
was always loving me
I never knew how life could be.
Everyone always said just wait and see.
Its hard when your on your own.
You miss the sound of your parents tone.
You are so far away.
You were a child just yesterday.
You have to make your own living.
Its hard because your parents were the ones giving.
You always thought that being grown up was fun.
When you you were a kid you always wanted to be one.
Now things are different the world isn't the same.
How fast it goes is just a shame.
Its not the love that I was looking for its not the tears we shed
together its not the cries....its a secound chance its a time where
we can be we and I can't be i ....a secound try a time were we
can live not even to learn...close ur eyes and you can trust me
fall back and ill catch u..for a secound chance?
Hey girl or hey love its all one in the same, i do have feelings but along the way i
forgot the name. but please keep in mind i remember the times and above all
else i remember the smile, the smile thats yours when it`s focused on me.
something is busting loose but i can keep it in chains please i lie and i know it i
don`t want to hold back you`re stronge enough for the two of us so you say no. i
flow to off beats of hearts old and young, maybe you can open yours and i can
flow to you. maybe another day another time another letter, nahh i think it`s about
to come out now.
the first time we met i wasn`t sure if you got down a smile ear to ear with lips
chocolate brown. i didn`t wonder till later would you inhale with me and let me
stuff your blunt with my L-O-V-E, most definitly we can get higher than the clouds
that watch the sin shared between you and i. can`t really say i know much about
you, can`t really say you know much about me. the meaning of my journey is to
find true love, but at times i wonder do i know what love is. deliver them from evil
and deliver us from me, i`ve been told i share forbidden love so stay away please.
i remember the letters and how they started off, hey girl whats up with you. i`m
just chillin never illin because i got that can do feelin. yes i can do it, but only if i
wanted. maybe i just tell myself that because i can`t stand to fail nor do i stand to
fall, ain`t that a hoot because we fall to stand and stand to be taller; look at me
don`t i stand out. i must be out of my mind to write this way, lets go out on a date
out on the town let the night pass and slip outta this world. whoa look out i think i
fell in some love, but i don`t think she noticed so lets move on.
" FLIP PAPER OVER"
20 Oct 2014 8:40 PM
What I fear is that who I am and what I become is gonna
be incompatible with who you are. I fear that the spirit of
God that I carry within me, is gonna make war with the
flesh you live to satisfy. I fear that I'll have to choose
between the everlasting love, need, want & desire for my
Lord against what I feel for you. I fear we will grow apart
in time because we aren't serving the same God and
because we live in two different worlds we could never be
together as one for that purpose. I won't try to change
you, your mind, or your heart. But I'm also
fearless...because the Love I have for God is more greater
than my love for you so In time if I have to choose and
we're just never gonna live the same life for Christ...oh
well its a sacrifice I'm willing to make
Jesus All Mighty
God up above
Your gracious Master
how precious Your love
I walked in the darkness
Looking for light
Ready to give up
You said-no-not tonight
My child,I love you
Do not be scared
For your burden is My load
That is why I am here
OH GOD so many times
How I have let You down
Each time my Lord
You still turned it around
I did not feel worthy
For Your love is so great
Whenever I failed you
With a heart full of hate
But still my God
You let me back in
Over and over
Sin after sin
But this time I promise
To honor and obey
To be a desciple and worship
And do as You say
When I awake,I will
Unto You Lord give praise
And before i lay down
Hope I rightiously fullfilled Your day
I will talk with my family
All Your children on earth
As many as I can
And tell them,GOD comes first
My Saviour,my King
I worship You all through my life
Thank You for lifting the darkness
And bringing me to light
Oh precious are You
Thank You for Your Son
And thank you for anthor chance
For my life has just now begun
Hear me dear Lord
For each time I pray
It is with great honor
To live for You each day
For sure I could say this
Over and over again
However you wish dear Lord
I love you GOD Halleluja and Amen

Did man get the message has gods raft and mercy become clear to you the fall

dog there are people struggling trying to find decent jobs i see people going out there
commiting crimes young children dying before there time i mean what did we do to deserve
this seeing are people die for no perpose i mean let me speek the the truth at times is there
is no some hope for to days youth i say this because there are kids out there saling drugs
smoking bud and it bugs me how they are trying to be like these images you see on tv when
all they need is a dose of reality actuality this is not the way its sopose to be its no good for
me its pathetic to see how this could ever be so much poverty and animosity possibly not
just effecting us localy in our own community but also nationaly.
Thrust into a new place, Being better is a race
Everybodies different, Everybodies out on display
Making new friends, as well as unwanted enemies
Try and stay focus, All I wanna be is really me
I've got the brain to get the grades, But someone is distarcting me
I'd rather skip class and go and kick back with my honeybee
All these problems, whoaa is me
Grades are great so time to chill,
Oh no, grades tumble down a hill
Back on my game I study hard
Extra cedit working hard, Earning A's and all is great
Problem is girls like to hate
All this drama girl you fake !
Time goes by another year,
All repeats and stuff gets real,
Work extra hard, gotta stay focus
Ignore all the drama your futures in motion !
School works most important so make sure you get it finished,
And when it's time to graduate oh high school how you'll miss it.
And in the future you'll sit back and start to realize,
You made it there you'll make it anywhere you put your mind..
I fell in love with the man who fathered my first child. The one who is my baby
daddy. He promised me that he would never hurt me but in the end that was one
big lie. My baby daddy hurt me in many ways. The man told me that he loved me
and cared about me. Well all of that was a lie. My baby daddy was a 21 yr old
who was married and had 2 other kids. Worse of all he forced me to sell my body
at the age of 15. I was a run away at the time but quickly turned myself in for I
could not allow myself that pain. I spent 2 weeks in Juvie in the Bronx, but as I sat
there I could not get him outta my mind. It was as if he was sewn in there and I
could not remove him. I called him a month after I found out I was pregnant and
of course he didnt believe me. I didnt understand what I had did wrong, I mean
here was the man who told me he loved me yet didnt believe what I told him. I
knew I was not supposed to have contact with him because I was 15 and he was
21 but I did any ways. I thought that having his child would change his mind and
make him want me. I lost contact with him for 3 months and during that time I
was still very obsessed over him. When he called again we stayed in contact, his
daughter was born and although he could not be there he said that he wished he
could have. My baby daddy promised me that if for any reason I ever lost our
daughter to the state he would claim her. The state took our daughter and of
course he didnt step up. I fell in love with my baby daddy and fell back outta love
God was in the begining,
When the begining began to
Now if your waiting on god to
finish something, don't forget,
even time is waiting on god.
For what god is working on,
is already complete and time is
waiting to catch up with it.
Think about it.
The past is the past
And there is no going back.
I have made it through you,
I loved you,
And I needed you.
You were mine,
And now your not.
I no longer need you.
I loved you,
That won’t ever change.
You won’t ever be mine again.
You chose what you wanted.
That is fine by me.
As long as your happy,
You were my everything.
I don’t regret anything I did with you.
All the time spent.
All the time wasted.
All the time gained.
I don’t regret it a bit.
~He doesn't even know~
To not feel this hurt,
Can't you notice these sad eyes,
But you dont,
You'd rather pass them by,
Every minture without you,
But I hold on to thoughts,
I stuggle knowing,
It's not me,
And I wait sitting here lonely,
I'm sickend by,
The fact I can't say a word,
I'm so scared,
To tell you,
I don't want the reaction I always get,
Where they never talk back to me agian,
It's impossible to focus,
when my body tingles,
And i get that dry feeling in my throat,
Trying to say something right,
But for some reason I just stare,
Why Can't you notice these sad eye's,
I want to grab your hand,
when you pass me by.
No matter what I did it never seemed to be good enough to catch your attention.
Moma I did so much yet you never really cared. The tears I have cried for you I
see now they were just a waste of my time as was everything else I did. I tried
being good just for you while your oldest daughter was sleeping around and
doing drugs just like you. I told myself all this good that I was doing would get
your attention. Yet no matter what your men and drugs were more important. Well
moma if men who abuse you and drugs that will never the less ruin your life are
more important than I don't know what to say but maybe one day the wheel will
turn and it will be time for me to say, Moma no matter what you do you cannot
make up for the lost time.
I am so wild, I carelessly run around
I am the last horse in a one horse town
I'm as wild as wild can be
I have zero guidance, so I live my life aimlessly
Do what you have to, send me to assist the Border Patrol
I need someone to neuter me and keep me under control
I live life by the seat of my pants
I don't want love or trues romance
I believe that every moment counts
When you fall down, there is still time and room to bounce
If a jet can fly, it can surely land
When wrong is done, justice needs to be a firm hand
One day I may feel peace and love deep in my soul
When I find that one that can keep me under control
If there is a poster child for bad, it has to be me
I do not welcome the Devil, but there will be no begging for mercy
I often wonder what do people think
I really don't care after my third hard drink
You are wasting your time if you want to preach
You are educated, so do your best to teach
I am not worth being loved by you, so do not glow
I want discipline, so do your best to bring me under control
I party and sin and live as I please
I will never be driven to my eyes
I am a rebel and that will never change in my life
Not looking for love, a white picket fence or a loving wife
I can take the streets and deal with them blow by blow
Are you the one to keep me under control
Some people have it, some don't and some never will
I'm tired of hearing about it, I have lived it, now it's overkill
The question is do I want to sell my soul
You can save me if you can keep me under control
A whole world away
Yet they have lots to say
They make each other laugh
They make each other smile
And it makes their lives worthwhile
Someone to talk to
And have things to do
And it all feels true
Even when they're blue
They have lots to talk, to
Their lives are different
Which they know isn't insuffient
A whole world away
Makes them look forward to each day
we once felt love
love for one another
we talk together
we laughed together
we both loved each other
then one day
just one day
everything went wrong
all the trust we had
just flew away
it flew away like a bird
with new wings
and out love died
you lied to me
about the OTHER
about your love for me
i thought our love was forever
but it never started
our love died
when i found out
i cried all day
you tried to explain
but you knew you couldn't
you said it was a mistake
that you didn't really love her
that she was just a play mate
but i didn't believe you
i couldn't trust you
i didn't want to believe it
but it looked like you left me a long time ago
i left that one day
i ran as fast as i could
i didn't know where i was going
maybe an empty place
so i could just fill it with my tears
our love have never started
because every time i try to start it
you would just play along
so that i would think that you felt the same
when you knew you could never love me
i was just a show off for you friends
out love died
it ran away
it flew away
our love never started
so i felt like i never did
As I sit in my secret place
I feel the sunshine hit my face
Thinking of us in the past
Knowing that our love was supposed to last
I can almost here your voice it sounds so close
I know that you will always mean the most
I see you smile and i smell your colonge too
You made me feel good when I spent time with you
I wish you wouldn't have gone away
And we would be happily engaged in may
Remembering the time I spent with you
Makes me smile when I'm feeling blue
I held my tears, confronting you
You were trying to soothe my heart
I tried to say a word to you
But you continued telling me, How to Lighten up My Heart.
Every time you encouraged, I tried to say my word
It was just that, you didn't stop!
I know you were showing your sympathy
I know you understood my pain
You tried every aspect to stop me
From getting myself hurt again.
You asked me several questions
Without giving me time to think
And then you tried all the locutions
Might my pain get shrink.
But, I know my questions, I know my answers,
I know how to stop my bleed
I wanted someone to just listen
And just listen and do me a deed.
Presuming that, I need some time think,
You lift your air and went
I was trying to say something…
You just didn't understand!
The first time I saw you I was hypnotized by your eyes, mesmerized by your
beauty, captivated by your smile, I could not stop staring at you looking at you, I
love the way you look and your inner beauty too, you’re fun to be with around with,
easy to get along with, easy to talk to, you’re gorgeous too, cute and you know its
true, its sexy the way you move, its like a dream come true to have a friend like
you, you don’t get mad that quick and I love that too you’re like my sun that takes
away my rain, your like my light that shines my way you laugh by everything I say I
love when you laugh because that makes my day, I love the way you smell you
smell so good your smell captivates me every time your near me you smell
incredible better than anything I smelled before you smell so good it drives me
insane its hard to explain and I’m happy to have a friend like you someone that
brings me happiness and is a great person too, the guy that is with you is the
luck’s guy in the world to have a girl like you because if I was you’re guy I would
never let you go, I would cherish every moment I’m with you. I would listen to you,
I would be there for you, I would write sweet poems about you, hell I would even
sing to you, I would protect you with my life if I had to because there is no other
girl like you, I would take care of you like a precious jewel that every body wants, I
would treat you like a princess and I would be you’re king, your more than words
can explain I’m glad that you’re my friend
Flower, I pick it up to smell it, Not knowing the scent is forever gone, For it's
beauty still remains, I put it back in a safe place, Keeping it from being
demolished, But ponder on why, Why it's so easy to lose something, But so hard
to get off your mind, Flower, So easily broken, Yet the best one's take forever to
find, Why do their beauty's eventually die?
this boy couldnt see the girls love for him

THE FIRST THANKSGIVING
The Pilgrims held the first Thanksgiving
At Plymouth in October 1621.
The bitter winter of 1620, was over
With a loss of many father, mother, daughter or son.
Life for survivors was much better now
As a good harvest improved what was rationed
Settlers enjoyed good health and prosperity
As homes were raised from the logs they fashioned.
They walked unafraid and safely in the woods
For they had made peace with the Indians.
After the signing a long-lasting treaty
Natives and Pilgrims shared the land as friends.
Sending four men to shoot waterfowl and wild turkeys
The Pilgrims decreed a holiday of good fortune
A chief was invited who brought 90 braves
And five deer to increase the portion.
It was an open-air roast and festival
Held along the north bank of Town Brook.
Where there were games of skill, chance and dance
While everyone gorged on the feast they cooked.
From then on Thanksgiving spread through the colonies
Though each region chose its own date.
Till in 1789 president Washington proclaimed
November 26 a day to give thanks and celebrate.
The theme of Thanksgiving has always been the same.
Though its date has changed many times.
A day for giving and remembering the less fortunate
Expressing thankfulness with our prayers, hearts and minds.
It is our duty as a nation to acknowledge providence
Of Almighty God, and to obey his will.
To be grateful for his blessings, and protection
As we humbly partake in the tables we fill.
It's a time of plenty and a time for prayer,
A time for families to gather and share.
It's a time to remember those pilgrims past,
A time to celebrate life, while it last.
As we bow our heads around the table,
With turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie.
Before we feast we’ll thank our Lord
For the blessings of the year gone by.
Old Jack Frost is freezing on the windows,
As outside the bitter wind blows.
While inside there's a red, hot fire,
Which welcomes and warms both hearts and souls.
By Tom Zart
To my wife a woman who took my heart so many years ago,
to this woman who mended and found my lost soul,
When we meet it was all so new,
boy meets girl and from there it grew,
From lust to like and then to love and all from just a kiss,
when I prayed for some thing, I never dreamt it would be this,
Some one as warm and as wonderful as you,
every day in a kiss in a touch or a look seems all so new,
Years ago I didn't see all this all that we have done,
our kids grown with your smile and my knack to have fun,
If this was a book it would be the #1 seller of romance,
if it was a song it would be played for lovers to slow dance,
Blessed are the ones who know what love is,
blessed am I for I have all this,
Through all the high and even the lows,
we weathered the storms and look what we have to show,
Love takes time some one once wrote,
and the time put into love is worth ever note,
So to you my love I write this today,
years have past and seasons have changed and you still take my heart way.
SUD den LY
time of death: 1:47
Remembering all of those late nights seeing
the shadows of your silhouette.
My heart begins to pound like a
Blood streaming through my veins like a nice flow of
champane called 'Moet'.
Losing one's breathe with each beat,
indiscret with hope that once again we will
Sweat drippin from the romantic evation,
Yelling out from seeing the contour of the man's
Tossing and turning into one's deminsion,
Feeling like a school girl going to detention,
In remission of one's own submission.
Only time will tell the tale
When time is on time.
Time is not blind to the necked eye,
Only time is blind to no time.
Awakening from an enchanted scene,
Looking for ones king,
Seeing the stars bling,
Just to sing into a memory....
Of a lover's dream.
There was an instant connection,
Thru the first bars & lines, as I gained mobile reception,
Eyes glowin in excitement,
Body growin from enticement,
As my fingers moved swiftly thru the keys,
My fingertips tingled,
My soul at ease,
U were a breath of fresh air,
It was like we'd met before,
It felt like deja vu,
Everything u'd say, It felt like a reminder of what I'd been thru,
The feeling I felt, it's like nothing I can describe,
The amount we had in common was uncanny,
From our beliefs,
Down to our relationships with our family,
I was amazed how words could have such an effect through a screen,
But I was touched in every way from my head to my spleen,
I'd imagine u whispering those words softly in my ear,
& with every message u sent, thru my heart,
It was clear,
Falling for u had I not seen u in front of me,
I'd ask myself,
Was it crazy,
Then u'd convince me not, that it was just the divine connection we shared,
& Question God, I had not dared,
I knew it was a reason for ur placement in my life,
I'd not encountered u, without some sacrifice,
God taketh away, & he'd given me, u
The reason ur here, we shall see in a few,
A great friend u'll always stay,
& I'll still think of u,everyday,
Though, our plan is to meet sooner or later,
But each day, my anticipation grows greater,
My mind wonders what will come of this,
Will we get one another?
Will God transform u, from my friend, to my lover?

Sometimes it shame and some times its pain
Sometimes your life could use a lil change
Sometimes it seems like its all the same
Sometimes its all lost in search for the fame
Maybe the bullet was dodged
Or maybe it missed
Maybe it all gave way
At that time of your first last kiss
Could it have been the moment
Or the time that passed
Is it the life you lived
Or the life you could have had
Through all the moments, elements, and change
This is the place the place where i am for you and for you it will always remain
So just forget the bad weather cause when it rains its better
Life's a puzzle and we the only pieces that fit together
Sometimes its you and sometimes its me
Sometimes its the breeze or the fall of the leaves
And sometimes its just love putting together
two people it sees
This time its you and i know deep within its me
When I seen her, I knew I had to make her mine
She comes a family with a knack for design
She is put together so very well
She has been mine for 15 years, no one can tell
I know this story must sound melancholy
But please if would pardon my dolly
She has never needed any reconstruction
She carries extra weight time to time but removes it quickly, no need for
I love her so much, she is the one I know who will never let me down
She has strutted her stuff all over town
She enjoys being around me
We have avoided so much contreversey
She waits for me right beside my bed
She need a new coat, possibly bright red
We ride together in a Denali
If you need a ride, I will say in advance pardon my dolly
She has seen more places than a band on tour
Everyone is familiar with her each time we enter a store
My girlfriend feels threatened by her, her name is Molly
But each day I politely tell her, pardon my dolly
SO I AM SCARED
TO LIVE ALONE THE REST OF MY YEARS
IF ONLY SOME ONE TRULY CARED
AND COULD TAKE A WAY MY FEARS
MY FIANCE PAST AWAY
IN JUNE OF 2010
I MISS AND LOVE HIM EVERY DAY
I THINK HOW MUCH WORSE IT COULD HAVE BEEN
FOR ME BUT I PRAY
I DIDN’T LASPE BACK
IVE STOPPED JUST JUMPING IN THE SACK
WITH ANY GUY
I WANT TO GET TO KNOW THEM
IM AN OPEN BOOK I DON’T HAVE ANY REASON TO LIE
ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME AND CONDEME
ME OF ALL MY UNRIGHTOUSNESS AND SIN
FOR NOW I WILL BE OKAY
BEING ALONE IS BETTER THAN A LOT OF RELATIONSHIPS I HAVE BEEN IN
TODAY I FEEL WILL BE A BETTER DAY
I WRITE POEM AFTER POEM TRYING TO GET IT RIGHT
I LOVE EMINEM AND HE INSPIRES ME
IN THE LONG RUN I WILL BE ALRIGHT
IM JUST DOING LAUNDRY AND WATCHING TV
I MISS MY GRANDMA ALL THE TIME
TALKING TO HER AT NIGHT
IM STAYING OUT OF THE LIFE OF CRIME
SHE WOULD BE SO PROUD THAT I AM ON THE RIGHT
AND NOT ALLOW MYSELF TO GET FOOLED BY THESE GUYS THAT TRY AND SPIT LINES AND MAC
IM SMARTER THAN THAT
I HAVE A PRETTY FACE
EVEN THOUGH I AM WAY TO FAT
BUT THAT SHOULD NOT MATTER OR BE THE CASE
I SHOULD BE LOVED AND WANTED FOR ME
I AM A GREAT WOMEN A HELLISH PERSON
IM IN CONTROL AND IF U WOULD TAKE TIME TO SEE
I KNOW HOW TO HOLD A CONVERSATION AND HAVE FUN
waisted time wasited space waisted soul thats all i am...............
i make you sad i make you cry now i should be the one to die
pain tears crying falling nothing better then trash burning eyes flames with
fire pain so deep cant shake off.waitse of life waist of time and a waist of love
no comments no faith no fear only pain and tears and a waitsed soul.no smiles
no fears only evil looks and deivl eyed tears burning heart waitsed space earth
is a horrible place.sad cry i shall be the only one to die.exiting deaths of no fear
despret nature despret year.just a waisted soul
On the move all the time
Running scared, Wanting to hide,
I lay down crying.
Wondering when the time will be mine.
Daydreaming of how things could be,
but the need to be free seems to be a
long lost fantasy.
Looking over one's shoulder just to sit in
peace and relax.
and Wishing that a peace of mind will once
again come back.
Filling spaces of terrible places is the key to
Love is the key to alot of things
This key has no meaning.
So you're a runaway with time to spare...
Who cares for all the wrong reason's to
Stepping out on that stepping stone
to be told,
How one can be so cold yet bold.
Here's a toast to the night and day.
God Bless the ' Runaway'
During some time in life, the caged animal is set free
Taking on the world so aggressively
No longer at the parent's beckon call
They no longer are staring at their bedroom walls
They take flight and start living their own lives
As they grow, from their backs they will have to remove some knives
Where is the compassion, a lack of it these days
Some become homebodies, others become strays
Strays should be neutered or spayed
Self preservation is a natural instinct
Life is so precious, can pass by in a blink
Life should be held in high regard and respect
The worst animal is human in many aspects
Kindness to others comes in slivers
By far the takers outnumber the givers
They say that we are all coming to the end of our time
The hints of it are evident, I guess there has to be more dramatic signs
We are of course talking about the human kind
Here we are again doing the same old things yet this time you love me but your
dating someone else.Your so confusing you cant make up your mind.
I still love you but you just gotta stop making me worry.
I could wake up and wait for you and you could leave at any time ...
Its happened befor but what if it happenes again?
I hardly got over the last time it happened ... i dont wanna go throw it again...
You say you love me but you always change your mind .. this just isnt right you
could leave now if you wanted to yet i dont wanna cry again you dumped me and
i cryed i missed you and i still do you still love her and you love me but you can
decide.whats rong with this you stay with me but when shes here you act like
you dont know me ...you are so not over me yet you didnt know you loved her
well its just a little to late.I'll love you firever are will i forever is a long time well
maybe i wont and maybe i will.....no mater what at least i love you now.
What happened to us your love for me left and now its back well... i just don't
know what to say.its just the same old things day after day do you really want to
live this way i cant be happy only sad and your always feeling bad i make you cry
yet you still love me.your confusing but i love you and thats the way it should be.
Take me home
fast as you can
I'm too young
your'e too much a man
I want to lay in my mama's bed
I want to watch the news
I want to hear how people died
that's not as scary as you
1st put on my mama's site
I started my career
As a person that removed wax from ears
It was down in the Texas Panhandle
I would use the wax to make candles
But then no one wanted their ears cleaned
The work was Far and few in between
It will be time to relocate in June to Mount Pleasant
Maybe because they call me Busta Pheasant
June came and went and I am still here
Oops just spilled some coffee on my clothes, time for some all Tempa Cheer
The ladies call my gangsta name stupid
Me and you will be together, I'm just waiting on Cupid
My real name is Harry Bikiniline
Now you know why I am a prime example of out of sight, out of mind
I want to thank my parents for the wonderful present
For my stupid name forcing me to become aka Busta Pheasant
The guys laugh they don't me as a serious threat to their girls
I tell them I bet you wouldn't survive in my world
My life is based on performance excellence
You're just jealous because you can't be called Busta Pheasant
Go ahead and contact 5-2-9 and Puddin' to ride in your Pacer on four doughnuts
wearing your wife beater shirt
I will be stabilized at my home like the Enterprise with Captain Kirk
My Mom and Dad ask me when I am moving out
I tell them as soon as I build some clout
So they kick me out, I am renting a portion of the back yard and living in a tent
I have sign up that reads home of Busta Pheasant
The next time you decide
to lock me outta my house
you BETTER be ready to ride
Look, I don't want to be crass
but lock the door we both picked out?
and I'll be kickin some ass
Baby, I get it, I even understand
your goin thru some kinda "crisis"
But the next time you lock that door?
Take a picture, it will be "priceless"
Do you REALLY think I'm messin around?
strangely, that makes me hot
Open that damn door
and make it more than a thought
am so special
won't suck you dry
need to be someone
have such anger
am a stranger
to myself, myself
I promise to me
to let myself be free
I WILL do better
I WILL forget
the things said
be better, no regret
I will be better
I already am
Originally written on the Janetta Harrington site by me. Thankyou Mama, love
Toe to Toe as we stand facing each other man to man/
Truth is what I want to hear, look am I moving I'm all ears/
Eye to Eye still standing teary eyed,
come on pops no more lies/Truth is what it's worth,
So it's time to quit all this hurt/
Because all you don't bring to the table/
You are what you are labeled/
So let's take the time to talk/
And burn some hours off the clock/
If you don't want to then it's cool/
Then the next word out of your mouth
is of a fool/So Toe to Toe as we stand/
Contemplating the time at hand/
I forgive you while you're standing there/
Go ahead and shed a tear/
Thank you from putting me in this world/
And letting me know everything isn't diamonds and pearls/
Even though you will turn and run/I'm still proud to
be your son/So as we stand Toe to Toe holding your U.S. flag/
I'll make sure I'll tell my kids all about you dad.
JAMAL Z. WILLIAMS
Beyond the self,
is the freedom, unchained dawn,
I am in a crowd of voices.
Lifted by songs,
a bruised truth becomes a rose.
Choice was limited,
I desired silence, middle path in night,
under the lunar ecstasy.
Nowhere to go
I searched for tranquility, peace and light.
Love migrates back to old memories.
White days are pruned,
I would say the mirror was wrong.
I did not choose my life.
Dream of final
release was extraordinary
grandeur of pink moon
hanging on the trees,
the divine shower.
Life did not alter the genes,
it shifted the flow.
Untitled monument was submerged.
Every time i see the Time
Time and time again
I only see the time
Staying ahead of me all the time
To think of Time as your friend
Is as foolish as thinking
You know your friend
And time and time i tell you
Time can never be your friend
To think of Time as your enemy
Is as foolish as thinking
You know your enemy
And time and time i tell you
Time can never be your enemy
To think of Time as your partner
Nay,its as foolish as thinking
You know your partner
Cause Time can only be ahead of you
Aha! what a useless partner Time can be
Every time i see the Time
Time and time again
I only see the time
Staying ahead of me all the time.
The leaves fall down
in particles and pieces
one by one.....
twas the night before Obamaness
and all throught the house
not a creature was stiring
not even a mouse
all the democrats crept to their beds
hopping that tomarrow they'd have
a brand new head
all the republicans will scramble late into the night
for sure their going down, but not without a fight
all the independants still in shock and awe
still pondering questions about who should make the laws
rarely has a voting booth given time to great pause
never in our life time has there been so great a cause
tis the eve before election
and we look for those who will make the selection
is it the man with the clearly best argument
or is it the way their lives were spent
go joe biden, go bill clinten, go clair and colin
lead us to a better day, bright clear and golden
go american citizen with determination and heart
go give our country a brand new start
i wish Tim Russart were here to see this very day
He probably already knows what will happen
Practice-practice-practice, be good at what you know;
Patient-patient-patient, it takes some time to grow.
forgive-forgive-forgive, you could make the same mistakes;
Kindness-kindness-kindness, be good for goodness sake.
He practiced and he practiced, but nothing ever changed;
It's been some time so patients shown, yet he has no open range.
He did forgive the pet, for messing on the rug;
Now isn't that a kindness, he asks with shoulders shrugged.
He wonders what he's seeing, it looks like purple haze;
And what are all those walls about, is life some kind of maze.
By the law he's been mistreated and his car is out of gas;
And his lenders look for money, from some where in his ass.
It's said that money isn't everything, it's the root of all our evils;
Yet he has no way to pay his bills and his life is in upheaval.
Smoking is no good for you and drinking's probably worse;
And sex if you're not married, some call the devils curse.
Cities changed the boulevard to Martin Luther King;
Why not name the city after him, for he too had his dreams.
Jesus loved the little children; the British love their queen;
He's been told to be a patriot, but he's not sure what that means.
Take a look around, tell me what you see;
Do you see a lot of people, just like you and me?
Are we searching for acceptance, but we're not sure what is true;
Are we hoping for some better times, but the money man intrudes.
Have a shot of blended courage folks, the first ones on the house;
And the girls have imitation sweetener, up inside their blouse.
Welcome to the new millennium and welcome to the show;
Of course there is a service charge, its peace of mind you know.
If I knew how to fly, I would show you the world and how I see it
full of life, joy, harmony, and wonder for that is how you helped me find it,
If I could sing I would sing you a song that warmed you on the coldest day
you see from the time I raise till I fall asleep your tune lightens my day,
If I was rich and could give you any thing in the world
I would buy time to spend with you because thats all I want in the world,
If I was father time I would stop...
for every moment with you, any time by your side every thing stops...,
If I could give you any thing on this plant
it would be the greenest of fields,the bluest of oceans and the sweetest plants,
If I could show you how I fill having you by my side
you would see the world,
hear my heart beat
see how you fill my day,
know what it is to have the world,
as I do...to enjoy this planet
to see how
like a plant
this love has grown,
and you would see why
I'm blessed to have you
by my side.
FOREVER AND FOR ALWAYS.
After all is said and done,
Before the summer's end
Cradling our broken
Everything is dead, after all the
Fires fade and
Greatness falls to ashes,
Happiness a whispered rumor
In seas of deadmen's tears
Low spirits full through
Meand'ring years, when
No one's sure what
Once they knew, and what the
Point is now, when everyone's a bloodless
Queen of Hearts and Love is
Rare, all but forgotten...
Shunning rays of daylight just
To follow trails of stars
Until the last black dreams of
Wiped clean from all our minds, a
Xenogenetic society, free from rights of birth,
Yet undeterred from pursuing dreams of our own plastic-smiled
This ride takes you up and down,
It is a continuos cycle, round and round,
There is a beginning,
There is an end,
Our final destination is based on our decisions to some extent,
If you lie, steal and cheat,
At the end you will face the heat,
If you are honest and try to do right,
When there is a tunnel, you will see the light,
Some circumstances are beyond our control,
Are you blessed, or have you sold your soul,
When your roller coaster is at the end of the track,
No time to change, there's no turning back.
The enormous evil pours
its darkness on streets.
Violence throws its tentacles.
Overpowering fear stalks
and we shrink inside.
Ancient wounds fester again.
Our pain knives the clitches and
suddenly we search for the roots.
When the centuries fail,
who will link the dates?
The spaces in mind
are thronged by promising tomorrows
of soft pornography.
The virus spreads far
and wide and calender bares the ignobles.
The mob was coming.
Windows have new paint.
We will collectively burn
the scriptures in the city.
The deep tunnels hide the debris
of our broken limbs and shredded belief.
is the pain worth taking?
will i be better at the end?
shall the pain stop hurting
and i be brand new?
should i wait till it's my time to go?
havent i suffered enough?
the pain is still hurting
the sickness gets worse
i just cant take it anymore
it is my time to go
i wote on my last note
tears were strewaming down my face
but i knew it was a right thing to do
i kissed my cross
and helded up my gun
pulled down the trigger
knowing i was gone
i saw a picture of me being as happy as can be
i knew i would be like that once more
Here's some water
Let me hold your head
help things be smooth
baby, just stay in our bed
Here's the remote
push it wherever you need
Here's some more water
help you pick up speed
I'm maybe sorry
helpin you be this way
makin myself feel better
gettin you thru the day
I keep not lettin go
your'e still breathin
I blast the stereo
I'll keep needin
I keep lovin you
and not cause
I have to
I just do
She's the finest one I have ever seen
She requires a bath, but can't handle the Afro Sheen
She is high maintenance, which I don't mind
She receives complements from time to time
There is something special about her, I just can't explain
It always excites me when I'm inside Jane
She is long and sexy, a real lady to me
And everyone that meets her does agree
No other can compare
With all my friends she is shared
She was expensive, I paid an outrageous price
She's my pie, but I don't mind you having a slice
I own her, she is my property
She has demonstrated unswerving loyalty
I think I will change her name to Candy Cane
I control the heat inside Jane
She is getting up there in age, I may soon have to replace her
The next lady I buy, I will call her Jennifer
After my use of her last time I discovered a stain
Came from a dog that wasn't properly trained
I apologized to her and asked her not to be mad
She has been the most loyal one I have ever had
She is more than eager to entertain
What? Cut the dirty thoughts, she's my private plane
When did it all end
Summer time out of school and summer best friends
Trying to swim in a creek with water only to your shins
Trips on Fridays, the whole family going to the Drive In
By eleven us kids asleep at last
Boy those times in our child hood were a blast
Asking Mom and Dad can a friend spend the night
Staying up to tell spooky stories to try to make one another die of fright
Breaking out the Monopoly for a marathon
While waiting for the original Saturday Night Live to come on
Followed by Don Kersinger's Rock Concert
Look back and help me remember
Making out, puppy love and those heartbreaking times
Big back pocket combs and feathered hair looking so fine
The clap on clap off seemed so clever
The Pacer ended up being a me own one the answer is never
The magic of those Christmas cartoons in December
Please let me know what you remember
A few laughs as I look back
Tye Dye Shirts, Kool Aid colored hair and Bell Bottom Slacks
Big Wheels and skate boards
No helmet or pads were worn
Getting cuts and scrapes were part of the fun
Always mad when the day is done
Waking up early for another adventure
I think it feels good for us to remember
Don't I love drivin with my windows down
I saw you see me yesterday
I think you thought you knew me
I was singing at the top of my lungs
Maybe I looked familiar
like you looked yesterday
maybe you thought you knew me
maybe you thought I looked fun
It gets old trying to act my age
so I drive with my windows down
in front, in the yard
there was this tree
perfect for climbin
perfect to see
my town was lazy
it was just me
me and my books
and the tree
one day, in my tree
i saw all the police cars
racin by me
the deputy had been killed
i was thrilled,i was foolish
i was 12
Yesterdays sun hides behind today's over cast while tomorrows storm echos in
the distant ,
the dense sun light prepares us for the rain, the fall leafs soon will be changing
the chill breeze we fill on our backs means winter is coming, time to work like
the preparing ant.
snowbirds scatter, mosquito's stings will soon leave our thoughts for the cold
bears a bad fillings for our two friends.
The smell brings to mind the holidays Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the thought
of another passing year,
a time for family , memories of the loved ones that past and the new members
who joined us,
we will sit break bread and toast to the future, treasure the present as we
laugh so hard at the past we twinkle a tear.
the holidays when all is forgiven and the rest is put behind, for now it`s about
love and happiness.
So let the clouds roll in, allow the leafs to change, and bring on the cold,
it`s that time of the year when we warm our hearts,
it`s that time of the year when we have them to hold.
and it`s that time of the year when the healing from the year starts.
He has waited so long for his time to be heard;
But now he accepts its improbability.
She seems unreasonably consumed by a hate that can't be cured.
He plans a journey to a desolate graveyared of old dissapointments;
There he will bury his past in frozen ice, never to be seen again.
He will continue on, life has it's own predestined appointments.
He bids adieu to could have beens and to labels that never end;
He served his time yet remained hopeful beyond all common sense.
In other worlds he will not recognize her and they will not meet again
next time I laugh I will laugh out loud,
next time I want to scream I will do it with out a sound,
next time we hold hands I will see it as the last,
next time I see you I will know what to ask,
next time I'll listen to all that you have to say,
till next time have a nice day.
When rain falls,
i praise his name,
and when the sun rise,
i call him great.
In time of wars,
i pray him alot,
to keep my life,
and provide me with food.
In time of pain,
i call his name,
and when there's joy,
he bless my stars.
God is great!
The day will come when I will pass away and I wonder ....what will be said,
my journey in this world, this life time is some thing I would do again.
left behind will be memories, stories, and poems left to be read.
times of a love smitten husband to his wife and best friend.
Times my kids how they laughed and played in their parents bed,
memories of my struggles, my triumphs and the smiles along the way,
I wonder what will be said.
my kids will raise a glass and toast all that I use to say.
As my wife whips her tears for I told her I will always be near,
my daughter will say Romero's fear nothing while smiling and looking above,
my son will say family is the most important dad made that very clear.
my wife will say remember all that he did, he did it with love.
She will tell them how all I wanted was for them to be happy in life,
that to every dark day there will be light, for every bad day there is a good find it,
how I wanted them to be like me and find true love like I found in my wife.
to always hold your head up, and never no matter what never quit.
When my time comes I hope they will all know the love I have for them,
that my life, my poems my strength they were my inspiration,
that I will always be their dad, her husband and most of all their friend.
that even in death there is no separation,
I could not have had a more beautiful wife or have found the love I found in her,
or could I have been blessed with the kids I feed,
My life with my wife and kids is a story book no one ever read that's for sure,
a day will come, but for now I live in this moment, cherish every smile, hold a little
tighter and love endlessly for I can wait to hear what will be said
When will there be time for what you need to
Time made for work, for family, no time for
Living on a paycheck day to day,
The number of hours at work dictates the amount of your pay,
Mon thru Fri is booked til five,
Do not forget the commute of that thirty
Saturday brings the lawn care, the car
wash, and the house cleaning,
Stay up late to make up for the week, get
Finally relax Saturday night,
To watch America's Most Wanted to get you
At last it's kickoff time, hotwings, and
Before you know it, Monday's here.
In the triumph of flesh,
when fame of the world was your thing,
a sequence of defeats piled up
and time became stronger than the symbols.
Was it not easier
to abandon the consciousness ?
Living a dog’s life was more comfortable
without a qualm.
How painful it was to know the reality unclothed !
You had achieved nothing in life
and were readying up now
to receive thoughts of death.
Time had no beginning
and time had no end.
Do you think all will be well at last ?
Will we be happy without you ?
Or you will be remembered as a hero
without a name !
Looking back, I wish I could change things that I have done wrong, Then if I
did, I'd open my eyes in the morning to the sound of a different song,
Sometimes I wish I could have tooken a different turn, Then If I did, I'd wish it
was the other way around, Though if I took no turn at all, I'd be headed back to
town, Sometimes I wish I could take back the things that I have said, Through my
mistakes I have learned to repent, For I have done my share of crimes, Though if
I did not learn from my mistakes, two nickels would not equal a dime,
When all is said, When all is done we can not change the past, Though we can
set our minds to remember good memories that come to pass, Without
memories we are not able to tie notts in a rope, That help us pull in the ryes of
love that feel us full of
you think every thing i say is wrong well i say its right so good bye i have nothing
else to say to you.so long my friend no longer the one i care about.Every time i
fight with you only makes me love you even more but this time i love you less.now

my life so get out now I dont know your name any more....you keep saying that
you love me and you get me mad every day so whats the ponit any more good
bye your not the one i care about any more....
In the shadow of the darkness
in the time we call the night
lurk the ghost and evil spirits
that cause us all to fright.
There are some who ride the wind
some may crawl upon the ground
there is no way to hide from them
for they are all around.
They come in through your windows
they slither on your floor
some can enter with the sounds
that come in through your door.
They are driven by a hunger
a frenzied need to drain
some of them may take your soul
while others seek your brain.
They have one thing in common
they know the smell of fear
but you can make them go away
if they get to near.
Tell them all to go away
for you are not afraid
they might come up to your door
but they will never stay.
To those of you who seek defence
from the creatures of the night
take a path you know is good
know that you are right.
Take the time to think it out
else your life be filled with doubt
and you may well fall victim
to those we speak about.
The good in you
You are making it harder and harder for me to see the good in you
Or maybe I am being resistant from the truth
I don’t even want us to be together
But for some reason I want us to go farther
I think I just need so time alone
But I can’t help but answer when u call my phone
I know what you want and I continue to provide
Knowing when it’s all over you will continue to lie
You are making it harder and harder for me to see the good in you
Or maybe I am being resistant from the truth
Maybe if I speak the truth to you
You will understand my point of view
When you leave me I am left with shame
I sit in the corner of my bed praying that you will change
I sit alone mediating on the mistake that was made
All the action that shouldn’t have token place
You are making it harder and harder for me to see the good in you
Or maybe I am being resistant from the truth
Now that I have spoken truth to you
Do you understand why I struggle to resist you?
I am starting to think is there even good in you
Maybe you are giving me the pain that you went through
Maybe we both need time alone
Neither one of us call each other on the phone
You are just making it harder and harder for me to see the good in you
If it’s even there
