There No Rest

There No Rest


I can't hear you
I can't see you
I must be losing my mind


Our sanity is losing it pace
Shall this trio fall into madness
Let us fall for we shall never break

Must we see day as or time to rest
Must we see night as or time to play
Where going feel every second painfully

I touch your head
I touch you lips
I touch you chin

I release you
I trap you
I watch you

Sleep
Awake
Meditation

I give you birth
I take your life
I give you peace
 

Let sleep
Let lay our heads
At least we know 

We are protected

Peace needs a Prince

We feel
Such offense when
We look upon hatred
And its deadly applications,
Evil
That keeps
Peace just a dream
We come to see what works
And we judge those who seek to play
War games.

But when 
Hurt by someone
Personally, those friends
That you have cared about, helped and 
Defend
Because
You felt perhaps
They were misunderstood
And one fine day, they turn on you
And use
The steps
You took for them, 
Against you, in a logic
Of their own, that respects not
Your gift
Shaken 
By the feeling
Of betrayal even
When you know, a gift is given
Freely
The pain
Cuts deep, tearing
The heart apart, bleeding
And your hopes for peace strongly
Lessens.

You find
That the conflicts
In our world has taken
Wider proportion, peace further 
At bay.
Until
The sun comes out
Clears the clouds in your heart
Restoring faith, hope and the love
Inside.

Please God
The only one
Who can show us the way
To peace is your son whom many
Await.

No talking, only wild thoughts

Bumpy roads to school of hard knocks

Another Miracle

Life surrounds us with miracles each and every day
Blinded are the people who don’t see the wonder display

A child who’s born with ten fingers and ten tiny perfect toes
A child who’s free from illness and healthy as he continually grows

A single mother struggling to ensure the ability to survive
Facing endless obstacles; her child’s health promotes her drive

A troubled lost soul in dire need, of a kind helping loving hand
His suicidal thoughts evaporate; a now vanished forever disband 

An atheist whose religion is filled with hatred and disbelief
As he takes his very last breath, the Lord’s love fills his voided grief

An elderly couple who’s family is misplaced and sadly out of touch
A homeless needy puppy who’s love has given them simply so much 

An abused neglected child dwelling inside a house of dead
Blessed is the hero who saves this child of dread

A once successful entrepreneur who’s lost everything he once had
Homeless in need of shelter, a “nobody” lends him a helping hand

Miracles are all around us, if we only take the time to truly see
That the next one in need of a miracle could surely be you or me

I'm Sorry Girls

Mommas sorry I took you from
The only life that you knew of

Mommas sorry I took you away
From your world of friends of every day

Mommas sorry you had to adjust
To brand new teacher’s and studious musts

Mommas sorry you haven’t fit in
To a school of strangers and what had been

Mommas sorry I had no other choice
Than to sooth your fears using my voice

Mommas sorry if you feel all alone
But I’ll guide you through this fearful unknown

Mommas sorry you’ve tried so very hard
Still nothing has changed, all but new scars

Mommas sorry for the sudden change
Adapt my daughters to all that’s strange

Give me time to help you feel at ease
Give me the moment to help you please

Sense

I myself, thought it was given to all.
First to admit , " I must be wrong ".
Each and every second, it is proven to me.
Not all are as fortunate, as they claim to be.
To impress, try and make one like, is the definition for what they do.
In the eyes of on lookers, all we see is fool.
This fact is proven, regardless of gender.
Male or female, ignorance wont discriminate, it doesnt matter.
Senseless to the world, just as mad as the hatter.

My spirit is my strength today
And guides my life in everyday
