L-ove for one another is what we all need.
O-n earth especially with all of the greed.
V=anity of vanities can plant it's own seed.
E-ach one should love as in the Bible we read.
T-he Ten Comandmants tell us to love.
H-ave mercy on us we pray to the Lord above.
Y-et we still don't love, we wear a face glove.
B-ring all your burdens to the cross, we say.
R-easoning that Jesus shed His blood there one day.
O-nly He had the greatest love for mankind, and for their sins did pay.
T-hen after three days in the ground where he lay,
H-e arose from the dead, on earth could not stay.
E-very Easter we celebrate this wondrous Love.
R-emembering Christ and His Love from above.

So much, you have to give.
Yes, you are beautiful!
Are you paying attention to me?
Nile I am.
Dark and handsome man and confident…
For the love of God
In this real world
Never have I
Ever exploded with deep words of lust!
Savoring your body
Suc-cor your tongue
Young and free!
Affixed to your smile
Depths of passion!
Nice fit on you
Enriched this day!
Such words of desire
Ask you to be a part of my life.
So real to happiness
Seductive I am.
Yearn for me!
New elevations for
Finding each other is not a sure coincidence.
Inspire by other elements
Nadirs we are not.
Essence we are.

Just and passionate
A true outdoorsman year around
Cannot change his iron will—it’s like a force of nature
Kinsmen treasure his stalwart company and joy of cooking
Big man with grace in strength
Roars the engine when he waits too long
Only reads in the dead of night
Takes kids out to ski without a grumble
Holds a glass each day to toast the dusk
Escapes the winter to fish the Gulf Coast
Rigs up shelters for wandering bluebirds

Looking back it was always me who protected you
including times at school - beating a bully or two
times were hard, especially without a father figure
though you were younger, you always acted bigger
loyalty has always been your finest characteristic
even in times of hardship - you remain optimistic
Being diagnosed with cancer caused shock and trauma
rather than panic, you remained strong without drama
over protective you always made sure I was never sad
tacit in your emotions, my moods never made you mad
having you by my side, reassured me and helped to fight
especially as you looked after my daughters without spite
reflecting back upon my battle, being brothers is a delight

Answering to the soul

A ll wars did they fight with valour to victory,

E nd of the day life gave them only sorrows and regrets.

Away to face the eternal.
Loved by family and friends but
Lost to us now.
Always remembered, taken too quick.
Clever fox left unfinished business
Ending life's journey too soon.

The wind is quite blustery on our short walk to grandmaws
Hankering to have some chocolate pie and dressing
And see the new baby boy!
Never get to spend much time with the family lately
Kiss 'em all and get a hug
Stress out over all the germs we shared
GOD grant us blessings all the days of our lives
IF the heartburn doesn't kill me tonight, praise Jesus
Value of family --priceless$$
If brother can hobble he will make it ok
Next year will be better
God grant brother a new hip by Christmas
Drop off some new teeth for granny
Ann, she needs to chew her food good
You're faithful and just to grant our needs!

KING OF POP? ACROSTIC
Midst all the praise, forgotten all uncouth,
in this our time, we shan't remember this,
conveyed to all the world, his morbid truth,
he wanted more than anything, his greatest wish,
above all else, he wanted to be white.
enough to show the world it turned out right,
long after all is said and done, he turned out white.
Just as, in hot pursuit, no one could see
another 5, without his his dancing frame,
come latelys came too short to even be
known as contendors of his cherished name
so white is white, they never want him black,
or even guess he's not one of their fame,
nor see into the junky in his name.

My dearest brother,
Over the past few years we've grown strong, i remember when we didn't get along.
Oh I miss the days we would spend together, we would make each other feel better.
Since iv moved away it’s been lonely, I feel like we're drifting away slowly.
Even though ill be back, I dearly still miss you.
You probably already know, but I love you too.

The climate has change
The species have evolved
Change is the word that eludes me
Change is what I want for me
I seek to change my behaviour
I so want to be a tree
A tree that lose leaves
A tree that gives shade
A tree that provide fruits
I need a change
I want to change for them
Be the change they wants
Be their hero for lifetime
Time pass fast now
Times has come now
The time to make a change
The change for my children
It is a wish my staggering body need
It is the change my lungs seek
The change of new air filled with sweet smell
The change my brain approves
Oh hail my stubborn heart
Please let me change
Let me change for my father’s sake
Let me change for that fragile soul
Make me the hope for all
Make me lead the way for all
Show me where to start
Show me ways of being smart
I only see shades of my figure
I see clouds engulfing my small figure
Change me now
I wanna see the light
I want to see it tonight
This is the right time
This is time for bright things

Brother and sister love
Its a bird
Its a plane
No it looks like Sa-vannah
Flying in the air with duck tales
Saying come on mommy
Let's fly higher
So diontay can't catch us
Diontay says I am tired off you
I am going to the navy
To get away from my sister
She cries no no
I don't want you to go
I won't have no one to torment
And diontay says
That's the point
Cries don't stop running until
She joins the navy too
Now we are forever close

This is my rhyme, this is my voice:
Right feelings spur, right thinking raise;
In space and time, in proof and poise;
Blossoms occur, blessings appraise;
Urgent needs hurl, urgent wants pour;
Trust you concurred, trust you embraced;
Endowed our world, endowed our doors!
Faith in our land, faith in our soul;
Obsessed our trends, obsessed our bowl;
Rich action plans, rich fertile whole.
Our leader bold, our leader wise;
Used words to hold, used means to rise;
Ripe message told, ripe rewards prized.
History states, history styles:
Etch sure accord, etch clear story;
Lovely our fate, lively our smiles;
Move fine record, move grand beauty;
Such is your way, such is your grace;
Mindset set tough, mindset set brave;
Asked voters' sway, asked with straight face;
New team smoothes rough, new dawn to pave.
We follow truth, we favour trust;
Echoes of proof, echoes that last.
Profound strong mind, profound stern heart:
Respect you earn, respect you trade;
Ample you find, ample you start;
Insights we yearn, insights you made;
See our fond smiles, see our fine briefs:
Enriched lifestyles, enriched beliefs.

People barely notice.
Realize or even care.
After we leave this world.
You have nothing to declare.
Everyone will be judged.
Repent if you must.
Have love for your brother.
Enter the gates if your just.
Leave the world in your wake.
Pack an empty bag when you go.
Stop loving the things of this earth.
!??? Or didn't you know?

Never have I seen a boy
As awful as my brother.
Ugly meany took my toy.
Gonna go tell Mother.
He'll tell her I took his dime.
Tattles on me all the time,
Yells 'bout one thing or 'nother!

14 was when we waved goodbye,
to be set off in this world of danger.
14 was when he lost me,
and I lost her.
What a price to pay
for a mother.
What a burden to have
To be lost,
The lioness watches her own be
Taken away into the darkness
To the mouths of ghostly,
Evil, red eyed beasts.
How can she take this pain?
broken heart brought before her.
She is calling them in the night.
Howling for them to come
consume her body in minutes,
alleviating all the pain
from this lost love.
Lost in the darkness.
They are full now,
I’m heading back home.
The second sun
He is surprisingly beautiful.
A path of light and direction
I have always wanted to be.
My pathway of righteousness
Feeling anguish now,
Wasting time again.
I’ve just now realized
all this time,
You were the howling
that’s been calling me back home.
been too far along now
In this sea of death.
Its my time now,
Its time for you to bring me home.

Musing for memories
Etched in back of mind
Mom I remember
Reguarding brothers drowning
Inquiry stated caused by flashbacks from meth and herion
Eleven and didn't quite still understand
So I just prayed to God to forgive his lost soul

Flag of two, side by side, of red, white and blue
In thirsting heart of thine, let God’s words shine
Let not this symbol of two, suddenly, be in blue
In the land of apples, dwell peace-loving people
Pearl of the Orient, with a pure and natural scent
It’s blended, in your blood, be happy and be glad
No one can take; keep it safe, for your own sake
Of all good things you gained, use it, not in vain
Arm with courage and wisdom, from native Juan
Molded and taken care, by hospitable Uncle Sam
Ever be grateful of life, and defend it against strife
Run not from trouble, but, mend it by being noble
In the eyes of all, we can stand tall, being humble
Color of skin, white or brown, never forget our kin
Ah! My brother and sister, live in the spirit of two
No Fil-Am, without the grace of our Sam and Juan
For poet J.B, my Fil-Am brother
