WHEN I STOP AND PRAY

When the storm clouds boil around me, 
And the lightning splits the sky--. 
When the howling wind assails me,
And life's sea is rolling high--
When my heart is filled with terror,
And my fears, I can't allay--
Then I find sweet peace and comfort, 
When I simply stop and pray.

When the things of life confound me,
And my faith is ebbing low--
When my trusted friends betray me,
And my heart is aching so--
When the night seems black and endless,
And I long for light of day--
Then I find a silver dawning,
When I simply stop and pray.

There are things beyond the heavens
I can't begin to understand,
But I know that God is living,
And I know He holds my hand.
Yes, I know He watches o'er me
All the night and all the day--
And He's always there to hear me
When I simply stop and pray.

Thank You For This Bounty, God

Thank you for this bounty, God
that you give to me
for grain that grows within the field
and fruit upon the tree
Thank you for the little seeds
that in the spring are sown
and with your gifts of sun and rain
have through the summer grown
Thank you for the farmers, Lord
and bless them for their toil
as now they gather in the fall
this bounty from your soil




This was inspired by Brian Strands' Harvest Hymn Contest, which I unfortunately missed 
but I wanted to share it with you today and dedicate it to Brian for the inspiration and 
support he gives to us here at the Soup.  RG

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN

Now my tendrilled soul,
Has found its pergola-- Christ--
To wind its way up....


Details | Lyric | |

No Longer Mourn for Me When I Am Dead

If Death should call, let me go free;
It's only Heaven beckons me.
If I should step beyond the veil
Of sight and sound and voice, 't is well;
I shall be glad to place my head
Beneath the sod with other dead.
My spirit will not linger there
But float on myriad colored air
And dip its wings o'er twinkling stars
And ride the moon's bright, silver car.
At last my yearning soul will know,
Forever ceased its worldly woe.
If Death comes, do not robe in black
As if you want my spirit back;
I would not want your soul to grieve
Nor stand here desolate, bereaved.
I shall be glad at last to go;
Rejoice with me who wished it so.
It's not a morbid, ghastly thought
But one in Grace and Glory wrought.
For just beyond life's ebbing sea,
Beyond earth's pain and agony,
I dimly see the other shore
Where I shall live forevermore.
Death shall but serve to chauffer me
From galaxy to Galaxy.
His fingers do not clutch and tear
The soul from one who does not fear;
That soul is borne up in his arms
In ecstasy, without alarms.
Death will not be my dreaded fate:
He is but Heaven's op'ning gate.

Forever In My Heart

Sometimes I look around me
and I see an empty space
where you might be playing
a sweet smile on your face
You might be calling out to me
asking me to play
and I would be there with you
and you would fill my day

At bedtime when I read to you
before I tucked you in
I would open up my arms
and you would climb right in
I would kiss your baby cheek
and tell you "you're my love"
then I would hold you close to me
and thank the Lord above...

But when I look around again
there's just an empty space
no toys scattered on the floor
no shinning little face
I'll never hear you call my name
or watch you as you grow
but you will always be with me
no matter where I go

I know there is a heaven
and I know that you are there
and you have a better life
than I could give you here
until I take my final breath
I will always pray
that through God's most precious gift
I'll be with you someday

Then I will take you in my arms
and hold you close to me
your laughter will ring in my ears
your smiling face I'll see
we will be together
my precious baby boy
and then the only tears I'll cry
will be ones of joy

I hope that you can hear me
I have so much to say
but I never had the chance
since you left me that day
for now I want to tell you
that I love you so
and I'm so very sorry
that you had to go

If you could have stayed with me
my dream would have come true
and I know I would have done
anything for you
and even though you went away
and we must be apart
I know you will always live
forever in my heart

Chasing Butterflies

I'm haunted by the words you wrote 
Tell me what you want from me 
Don't tell me what I want to hear 
Tell me how you really feel 

I could be everything for you and more 
I'm telling you now I want more 
I'm telling you I want to be with you 
I want all of you... 
Do you want to be with me? 
Honestly? 

I know you're confused 
I'm confused too, confused by you 
It's okay to be scared 
I'm here for you, I'll hold your hand 
This is a risk I'm willing to take 
But the decision is yours to make
 
You write of walking a straight line 
I'm here to tell you that now's the time 
Now's the time to face your fears 
Now's the time and I'm right here 
Now's the time for us to shine 
Come on baby, let's chase those butterflies

God Never Gives Up

A lump of clay upon God's wheel,
Twas such a simple start.
The gentlest of hands I could feel,
As He reshaped my heart.

If wrong things I may do or say,
Discard me he does not.
Like an earthly potter and his clay,
God uses what He's got.

A perfect vessel when he is done,
Nothing fancy yet you see.
But with God I must be number one,
For He still works on me.

The Loneliest Teardrop

The life we choose the choices we make
Knowing how much to give knowing how much to take

Now this equation is not simple at least not for me to ascribe
For a lifetime worth of pain and not once have I cried

It's not remedies or reason for this affliction which I seek
For I am pleased with the joys I have given while not needing to weep

Yet I cant help but wonder though as yet I have not tried
Would my life had been much different were I able to cry

For I have seen the results of tears when they are freely shed
How embraces would soon follow with soft strokes to ones head

Now I can love and be tender without much effort or strain
Yet I am unable to give comfort when tears fall like the rain
 
But I will always be loving and Gods gifts to me I will share
And maybe the day I meet him in heaven will be the day I shed my tear

Open Doors

God will open doors
Normally shut by mankind

Thunderheads

O, boisterous clouds,
Why do you pout on high?
With friction so among you,
Will lightening too,
Not soon cross the sky?

In bumping heads,
You cause the thunders burst
Then in your sorrow weep
And once again your tears,
Quench earth's thirst.

I stand alone surveying aloft,
Your strength and might.
But then like curtains,
You're parting once again,
For God's sunlight.

Seeing a rainbow hanging,
In a distant portion of your sky.
I need not ask the question,
Where do you go
When not in sight,. or why?

While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Flowing like a river

Thought this one deserved another chance

As the river flows

As the river flows
So surely to the sea
It’s power be a wondrous sight
As it roams the land so free
The path of no resistance
Is how she lives each day
I will learn from this old river
I need to live this way.

As the river flows
She takes all in her stride
Not dogged by expectations
Not held back by her pride
She flows into the ocean
She knows this be her home
She has no need to hurry
She’s just content to roam.

Oh, I’ll be like that river
That’s how I’ll live my life
All free from fear and worry
Until my time is rife
To join that mighty ocean
All filled with sweet devotion.

As the river flows
And things get in her way
She knows to never struggle
Just flows from day to day
And lets the power take her
To where she needs to go
Her softness melts all obstacles
Albeit, oh so slow.

Not So Long Ago

Not so long ago beneath a bright blue summer’s sky
There your eyes met mine how wondrous was the sight;
We walked together hand-in-hand long into the night.

Not so long ago I held you firmly in my arms 
That we should never part or you wander from my side;
We promised then our love to share never more to hide.

Not so long ago in a hostile foreign land
I held your picture tight, and kissed your lovely face;
I wondered how you spent your day, longing for your embrace.

Not so long ago I heard your familiar, lovely voice
Though we couldn’t touch I wiped away your tears;
I’ll be home before you’ll know it to quiet all your fears. 

Not so long ago you found me standing in a crowd
There our love embraced and never to let go;
We cherished every single moment more than you should know. 

Not so long ago I watched the autumn’s setting sun
With shadows growing long and hours passing by
We tasted love’s sweetest nectar, and sorrow’s bitter cry.

Not so long ago beneath a bright blue summer’s sky
There your eyes met mine how wondrous was the sight;
We walked together hand-in-hand long into the night.

I'm Your King

A burst of white light gamma rays, overbearing a flash of brilliance burns through to my soul everything is like hell the world starts to melt in the blink of an eye just the cold blackness of night I don't care if I am not again what I once was, for at this moment I am greater now than ever before I took the path between teetering, tight roping walking right up to my right divined in my unholy state I thought I told you I am your king still you sit there, hesitating I know you hate me what does that mean? I hate just about everything still I'm chosen I did not wish before now bow down to me refuse me no more for I shall always be your demon until you accept me as your King. I don't even know you though you say we used to be best of friends, you and me the day you ditched me I remember now exactly how it played out back when we were just tiny things even back then I still was King you thought me stupid just a ruse I would laugh inside, you see? not one of you single, mean people ever even knew me in a world, mostly seen to me that is why only I can be your true King and bring forth a new source of light everlasting. As two worlds collide slowly aligned one wrapped in shadows one bathed in white evils swirling in the clouds above I'll always be the king you love to hate or despise as in your blood I thought I told you, I am the one I am the way, the way out shall be shown breathe in my spirit as it carries you away breathe in my faith it shall carry your empty space and deposit you gently on a cloud just enough higher than you've ever dreamed of for I am king now, and your in my hell your in my imagination, I'll just never tell you'll feel as though dreaming, you'll feel now if you try and see you were always found the most shared in the light cast upon me the last bright star in heaven. Denounce my name, if you may One year later, still not afraid A black sheep, a darkened spade That's just life, I'm not right I'm in the wrong, follow along Like a piper, I'll pitch a song Mesmerized, the weak wills sing I thought he told you, he's still our king.

Blood upon Pages

As I place the pen
on paper
my soul beings
to bleed
upon the pages
my secret longings
hopes and dreams
of which I hope to be,
how I want to reflect me
transpire into the universe
within my poetic lyricism
the warm sweet smoke
of my vega blunt
swirls about me, flickers
in and out of motion
as the vanilla candle nearby
fights the shadows in my room
the cool summer breeze
from my window
carries dancing sinsemilla 
fog around me, allowing
my mind
to adventure elsewhere
into the nights abyss
of minutes, turned to hours
I write
pages, of words
scribbling my life, struggles
and fears
Bob Marley and Lauryn Hills
“turn your lights down low”
beat inspirational peacefulness
on my eardrums
my small hands delicately pluck
my imaginary guitar strings
as I join her in a solo, Miss Hill's
magical voice cracks
with emotion, and my soul
tingles with excitement
For creativity flows
within my veins
I breath real music, such as
she, as soon as daylight opens
thine dark brown eyes to see
The poetic flowetry, carries me
and speaks to me
the notes capture my inner 
disturbance and desires
until the soundtrack of my day
takes me into Summers night
thoughts of my dreams 
of being a published poet
clearly float
into my sight
Then, I sit
as I place my pen
upon the paper
black and white turn to one
and my soul bleeds
onto pages
into an early sun

Forever Radiant




Radiant hymn's   of morning sun
of Godly words   O' how I run
to and fro
I traipse in search
in love I rest
still      my spirit yearns  

I will sing of the Lord's great love
forever...
forever..
forever...

I hear the call    upon the hill
in shallow breath    my heart lie still
O' trial O' fear
I march ahead
I call my king
on Zion's perch

I will sing of the Lord's great love
forever...
forever..
forever...


To proclaim    everlasting     the prize
onward and bestowed to rise
O' anointed one
I march ahead
in love I rest
each day of toil   

I will sing of the Lord's great love
I will sing
forever..
forever...

forever... 

O' how I bear   in my heart
in completion   just    to be a part
with sinful flesh
my spirit cries
I call my King
to shun desire

I will sing of the Lord's great truth
I shall sing forever
forever...
forever...
forever...

Amen......

My Midnight Grace

As I lay me 
down to sleep
I pray the lord
my soul to take
if I shall die
before I wake
please watch me God
all through the night
and wake me and my loved
ones
at morning light
please help me 
become successful
with the endeavors I seek
please send me a soul mate
in which I can keep
everlasting love
passionate heat
please grant me the serenity
to know right from wrong
and be able to lead
by example
strive to overcome
any downfall
please keep my spirit strong
through the issues
that toil in my soul
I aspire for diamonds in life lord
and all around me 
I see coal
I aspire to turn things around
for I feel my wishes have fallen
upon deaf ground
my heart has no voice
they struggle to hear my sound
I pray to be taken
away from my daily
battles, that humble
although compared to others
in the world
its not much trouble
to me, I feel
my spirit is caged
and yearns to be free
King of all Kings
in your image, you 
made me
you already know
each single step
my individual thought
you divinely bound me
in mothers womb
my existence you sought
bless me with the
chance to be
the person in which
you hoped for me
to soar like an eagle
dipping my talons of success
in life's sea
grant me an optimistic attitude
for that is the key
Amen to Thee

Is this who you are

walked away from the sun,
and into my life,
im sick and tired of all you put me through,
im sick and tired of your childish games,
and im tired of your foolish lies,
when you talk,
i bleed inside,
i hate your disgusting thoughts,
in you stupidity flows,
your the devil,
and me your victim of evil plans,
i hate you,
why cant you understand,
you put me through hell,
everytime i find happiness,
your the devil,
and me a poor soldier,
wrap all the papers,
and put it in a folder,
case closed!

' The Moon's Pilgrimage ... '

Moon’s Pilgrimage … Across The Sky To Praise
The Maker and All His Wondrous Ways
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Rises High, In Grace
Yet, Still In A Humble – Pilgrim’s Place

Moon’s Pilgrimage … Will Not Betray
All The Moonlight, GOD Lets Display
Tho’ She Moves In His Cosmic-Stage-Play
From His Theme-Theatre, She Will Not Stray

My Pilgrimage … Thru Deep, Dark Space
With Silver-Wings and Beams, I Chase
The Unknown and Known Questions Raised
Will Be Answered, When The Maker Says …

My Pilgrimage … To Touch Heaven’s Face
That Beauteous, Elusive, Mysterious Trace
Borne At The Blessed-Beginning’s Base
My Pilgrimage … Takes Me There To Pray …

My Pilgrimage … Takes Me There To Pay –
My Vows, My Voice, In Vesper-Vase
As This Moon, Is In Harvest – Phase
And Beams Brighter Now … Tho’ Slanted-Gaze

… The Moon … Glowing Ochre-Gold Or Silver
The Moon … Is Making Pilgrimage, Remember
The Moon … Is Trying To Help Deliver
Lost-Souls, Who Can Not Find … Moon River …

… Moon’s Pilgrimage … Keeps Steady Pace
Even Climbing Thru Dense, Cloudy-Lace
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Is Like A Dance, That Sways
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Into The Night’s Embrace … …

Staring Into My Own Reflection(Inspired by Rain Cerdiwin Keetly)

if you can see into the depths of my heart 
you would hear it sing the saddest song 
for those who have looked for meaning in tragedy 
for those have suffered terminally
for i have fallen just like them
i have been forsaken 
i've looked into your eyes and i see my own reflection 
i see the tears you have cried
i know you are alone and afraid 
your innocence betrayed 
but look into these eyes 
i have struggled and suffered just like you 
grab my hand you'll no longer be alone 
just think this through
for i have fallen just like you
let's stop this trend of sinking
for we are not alone
together we can break this threshold
locked in this embrace
together we will not break
bound together by something stronger than super glue
will you think this through? 
will you realize that i'm just like you? 
just look into this heart
don't let this world tear us apart
for i have suffered just like you
together we shall never fall
nothing can push our backs up against a wall
we will break through! 
believe in me! i believe in you!

Warmth of Breeze

Imagine me as a book covered with dust,
A soul whose warmth for years remained untouched

Letters on every page were ill-defined, unclear
The essence was hidden in an ambiguous fear

Uninterested I was in the societal rigmarole,
Me and my outer self were at opposite poles

Quite hesitant I was to turn to the next page
As I knew it would amount only to stormy rage
Quite concerned I was for my future pages and me,
The so-called bright world appeared shadowy

And in this dusky weather, suddenly the air felt unusual
This didn’t happen in years, the matter truly seemed crucial

I bizarrely felt the warmth of cool welcoming zephyr
My pages drifted, smiled and glinted like a pearl

My dull existence got transfigured into a life full-of-beans
Personified I was into a woman of worth, a woman of means

And now after owning this bag full of happiness,
I started reading the letters carved on me,

This time they were decipherable and defined,
They managed to unite me, my heart and my mind.

I looked around, in quest of the soul who revived me
Who passed by me and set my tangled soul free

Seeing him was out of question, quite hazy he appeared to me,
I could only fantasize him as a cozy breeze over the sea

Now, this breeze could be felt only when you are around me
You…  only you and nothing beyond
You…  the only one to make my passion profound
You… in your absence too you could be felt around
You … the only one in whom I am found!

Truth

Men say there are no absolute truths...

The Truth
Man can govern himself. He just doesn’t have the ability to do this successfully.

The Truth
There is one God. He has a name. He has a son. Their names are different.

The Truth
When you die, you are dead - not ghosts. It is that simple. That’s it, for now…

The Truth
Even though humans die, we were never meant to. We were designed for a time 
without end.

The Truth
The most circulated book in the history of Man must be more than a “book.”

The Truth
Happiness can be attained, even in a completely miserable place.

The Truth
There is no such place as a fiery Hell of torment, except in pagan mythology.

The Truth
There is a Heaven. However, its purpose is not what you think.

The Truth
The meek shall inherit the Earth.

The Truth...
...is not that far from you.

NOT ENOUGH

Just another day
they often start the same
But without any warning
life can quickly go insane

Standing in front of a mirror
lights begin to blink
My son shouts "The house is on fire"
our lives are on the brink

In those next few moments
our house filled with dense smoke
Blinding the eyes from accumulated stuff 
life's true values fully awoke

Doesn't matter if you have little or a lot 
things eventually burn, rust, or rot
If your living to accumulate stuff
the more you have.. 
the more it's not enough

Standing on the street
firemen racing from everywhere
Looking intently at our house
you realize your home isn't there

Home is not brink and mortar
it's not the warehouse of stuff
Home is who you hold on to
when life seems oh so tough

Standing there together
the only possession in my hands
Is the one thing that really matters
My precious family's hands

Doesn't matter if you have little or a lot 
things eventually burn, rust, or rot
If your living to accumulate stuff
the more you have.. 
the more it's not enough

*The words of this poem came to me holding 
my family's hands and watching our house burn

Human Being

I walk a mile to see the self in me that I believe to be, 
I knew the road I choose to lay my head to sleep is called my home,
times in need I could barely see that in myself I will set free, 
the act that held me down, something about me I could not see,
I lived a life when I decide that day I said that I don't care, 
so young, so bright, I dim my light, traumatized for me to share,
love me please regardless of what you heard and what you have seen, 
friends say that I'm only human, yes you're right, a human but who am I being?
My life will move in the direction I choose, 
this I know I have always been taught
that I choose to be a winner or lose, 
its entirely up to me its all in my thoughts.

Momentary Pleasures

Every night I fall
Always hitting a brick wall
Failures always come
Thoughts of what I’ve become
Makes me want to die

Momentary pleasures
Giving up these treasures 
Changing who I was
Regretting who I am
Always falling for
Momentary pleasures

I’m always longing for love
Reaching out for my dove
But why the hell can’t I stay true
And I know I’m always loosing you

Momentary pleasures
Giving up these treasures
Changing who I was
Regretting who I am
Always falling for
Momentary pleasures

Am I worth it at all
If I say I’m strong
Why do I always fall
I need to find my way back to faith
Before everything’s too late

Hymn One

As the title says, this is a hymn sort of thing, though I haven't been able to think up a 
title that I'm really happy with yet.


The LORD, enthroned in Heav’n above,
Has shown his grace and perfect love.
While I was still to sin a slave,
Jesus raised me from the grave,
For at the cross, as Jesus died
A child of wrath was made alive!

And when I did my sins confess,
Christ clothed me with His righteousness.
God did not just the sinner spare,
But called him son and made him heir,
For at the cross, that great exchange,
What Christ had earned, a wretch has gained.

I cannot claim myself to save,
For all my sin was all I gave.
Yet Jesus took this foul donation
And by His blood bought my salvation,
For at the cross, I daren’t forget,
Jesus cleared my unpaid debt.

God removing my disgrace,
Made my heart His dwelling place.
Sealed by Holy Guarantee,
I am dead, Christ lives through me.
For at the cross the curtain tore,
From the heavens to the floor.

Jesus' Great Love Has Unfettered Chains

"Jesus, Jesus there is  just something about that name"*
Jesus
He is my friend and shephard
His great love has unfettered
Chains, I'm free
Now as if "devil never even lived"
Jesus' great love has unfettered chains
My life has been bettered
"Difficulties in life are intended to make us better, not bitter"*
In this wonderful country of USA
"Thanking" God, "understanding" his love, "granting" forgiveness, "enchanting" is his name, Jesus I'm "chanting"
For Jesus is my friend
And there Is "Something About That Name"*
Emmanuel, Christ, Good Shephard, King of Kings
Lamb, Messiah, Redeemer, Savior
Jesus, Redeemer
When I look upon His Face and see those loving eyes, happy my heart will be
For my heart now runs on empty
Sometimes feeling condemned,now let
There be today "something in clouds anew"*

Voices

They are all in my head, all day and all night
I hear them talking, telling me something's not right
They come from all directions, my ears never rest
recalling words from the ones I thought I knew best

My family my friends, those closet to me, telling
me things I refuse to see.
They've been buried within so long and so deep
like angry little children refusing to sleep

Some yell loudly, some whisper soft
they speak of the times and the dreams that were lost
and all these times I've refuse to hear, from people
and places I held so dear.

I've been so let down, my pride has been shattered
My heart has been broken, as if I didn't matter
It's a harsh lesson these voices within
makes me realize I've only one true friend
Thank you lord for opening my eyes, to people
that hurt me and tell me lies.
God's comfort and love will pull me through
from all the bad things these voices do.

Certifiable Kiss

I have enough time
Yes 'cause love's alive and baby in its prime
Oh it is just like
Success ain't fun and games but for the saint's life

Yeah he'll pray but maybe Hell'll hit
Faithfully turn off the safety
Baby Cupid shoots shells with hollow tips
He'll lose an eye and they'll think he's crazy so
We'll say it gave him a gift
Baby the trait of a certifiable kiss

Girl I see you have more than usual
Yeah even before you visualize the visible
With a noble temper, mature and golden in a
A higher temperature than a crucible's molten innards

But there's a secret to your strategy
And it's a tragedy 'cause darling you had to be
So naturally keen at dodging me

And it's a line of defense
And girl you make a fence
So girl I take offense

Oh I know it's cliché but yeah they say that great men make it in-
To places few others who even do take the risk've ever been

But the only one in my blood that
That doesn't shine like the sun it
It naturally has to be the one where
I refuse to call it a pun when
I call you up to call you the one, there's

A secret to your strategy
And it's a tragedy 'cause darling you had to be
So naturally keen at dodging me

And it's a line of defense
And girl you make a fence
Hence I take offense

Oh to ward off Hell to reach towards Heaven
You play the chords
You make me insane but maybe I'll give you your credit
Oh to ward off Hell to reach towards Heaven
You play the chords
You make me insane but baby I'll give you your credit

MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT NOW AT 36

we stimulate our minds for our intellect to grow
becoming more technical
remaining spiritually slow

so we face trials and tribulation
crisis and complications
praising God, while serving Satan
expecting love when spewing hatred

our faith is dissipating 
until its totally forsaken
for miracles we pray
yet and still we disobey

missed lessons
means blocked blessings

wrong paths are chosen 
cursed to glimpse the promised land but never enter like Moses

it's hard to humble ourselves cause we've got pride
so we find a hard head leaves a soft backside

when stressed i ride 
reclined, inside

sounds booming
trying hard to decipher the message in our music

Pac said keep your head up
Treach said guard your grill
Wu sang protect your neck
Cube said to kill at will

Eazy said easy does it
Run said hard times
Jigga ask can I live
but Big ready to die

50 cent said get rich ore die trying
K.R.S made stop the violence, and listen to my nine

these are questionable times
that leave young impressionable minds
hoping to find success pushing   dope on the grind

thinking all the pain would end if they became rich
but the harder they hustle the more pain and anguish
 
if we could understand the hustle
we would over stand the struggle
instead we constantly land back in trouble

on frivolous pursuits
searching for forbidden fruits
living lies until they collide with the moment of  truth

I been there and done that
played with fire and got burned as soon as my hand healed I'd run back

so young and misguided
mama said don’t do it I tried it
it's by God's grace I survived it

flash back to my youth I was so naive and timid
wondering  if that  path I walked on is the one the Lord intended
tired of getting beat by bullies so I learned to prevent it
but I found my self in front of the judge as a defendant

five times aquited of crimes that I committed
but the one time I was innocent is when I got convicted
justice may be blind, but she so vindictive
so I struggle with it
trying to make since out of the senseless

God Will Help Me

I don't know how to overcome temptation,
I don't know how to overcome my fear.
But I know that you know my situation,
And most importantly I know your here.

I don't know how to rise above the waters,
I can't seem to find my way back to the shores.
But I know how much you love your daughters,
And I know that I'll always be yours.

No matter what the devil throws in my way,
I know that I can find my way over it.
Even though things get harder everyday,
No matter what I'm not going to quit!

Cause I know the power within me is greater,
Than the weapons of my enemy.
And I know that the almighty Creator,
Is my protector and He will help me.


Details | Lyric | |

A Patient Savior

For years no time for God I had,
In a sin filled blackened heart.
Now thinking back it makes me sad,
That I gave my Lord, no part.

Now, I worship not a God afar,
In clouds that I must part.
Not one who's found just in a star,
But resides within my heart.

Prophecy

The times of which the prophets wrote is taking shape at last. It won't be long till 
that fateful day we hear the trumpets blast.
The bright blue heavens will disappear, as the stars drop out of sight, the 
stillness in our hearts as each day turns to night.

The times of which the prophets wrote we won't have long to wait.
As this was written long ago our destiny our fate.
We've walked not a straight and narrow path now it's time to pay our dues.
It seems the fate of all mankind is in the hands of fools.

This Prophecy is not hard to see it's the coming of the end.
On that day we're all forgiven and free to start again.
The nightmare that we all will share we don't have long to wait.
Yes it was written long ago, our Destiny, our Fate

PICTURE THIS

Picture life in heaven
perhaps it's time to try
Better safe than sorry
And live with God,on high;
Picture all the people,
Loving day, by day

Picture there,a wedding
a supper with a feast
where the last is first
and the grandest is the least;
Picture all the people,
Loving day, by day

You may say I am dreaming
but I'm not the only one
I pray someday you'll join me
For I know,His will be done

Picture there a river
no curse,no day,no night
Eternally together
The Lord God gives us light;
Picture all the people,
Loving day, by day

You may say I am dreaming
but I'm not the only one
I pray someday you'll join me
For I know,His will be done

God Forgives

Have you ever felt hopeless?
Thinking there's no one to care.
Is there someone in your past?
At whose memory you stare.

Don't take the hide off yourself
Or think perhaps your not decent.
For mistakes you have made
Even if they've been most recent.

For we spend our entire lives
Wrestling with thorns in our flesh.
For the good seed and bad
Are two that never will mesh.

And you can love other people
Though one day they've hurt you.
Like we hurt God each day
In things we've said or failed to do.

We all face temptations daily
Of one stripe or another.
God was tempted but sinned not
Nor tempts he any other.

Though we try hard as we may
To live a committed life above sin;
While in this earthly body
We're inclined to mess up again.


Written for a special friend, Shirlene

I'm Ready

I'm ready to find the one who will hold me 
As long as I need them to... 
I'm ready to find the one 
Who I can start my life with... 
I'm ready to share myself 
Ready to share my love and passion 
I'm ready to move on with my life 
And finally find that happiness 
I've been craving for so long.... 
I'm ready to find that someone 
Who gives me butterflies, just thinking about them 
Who makes me laugh when I have a bad day 
Who holds me and says 
Everything's going to be okay 
Who knows me, inside and out 
Someone who wants to be with me 
Just because I'm me... 
Who will love me, in spite of my many flaws 
I'm ready to be in a relationship 
Where love conquers all, 
And nothing can bring us down... 
I'm ready to fall in love again 
Despite all the pain love has caused me 
In the end 
I'm ready to try again

" I HAVE A DREAM !!!"

I have a dream
That I'll get another,and better job
I have a dream
That I'll have a 5 bedroom house with fireplace
I have a dream 
This house will have 4 1/2 bathrooms
I have a dream
I'll have a fishing pond in the back yard
I have a dream
I'll own lots of fishing equipment
I have a dream
My kids will finish school
I have a dream 
All my kids,and grand kids-dreams will come true
I have a dream
My grand-kids will finish school as well
 I have a dream
That I'll be able to start them all a bank account
I have a dream
To own the vehicle of my dreams a Hummer
I have a dream 
To own a nice pick-up truck
I have a dream
To take at least a week vacation with the love of my life
I have a dream
To make all the love of my life dreams come true
I have a dream
To go to the beach for the very 1st time
I have a dream
To not owe any debts
I have a dream
To be able to pay my tithes,and offering every Sunday
I have a dream
To spend lots of quality time with my mom
I have a dream
To be able to give mom a few thousand dollars
I have a dream
To go to any restaurant I never been to before
I have a dream
That I'll be able to help the homeless,and the poor
I have a dream
To have Uncle John a new water well dugged,better electricity,and trailor
I have a dream
That I'll hit it big with my poetry
I have a dream 
I'll be known world wide because of my poetry
I have a dream
All drugs,alcohol.cigarettes,and diseases will disappear
I have a dream
That all things that are not of God will go away
I have a dream
That every race will get a long
I have a dream
That gas prices will drop quiet a bit
I have a dream
To own some suits to wear to church
I have a dream
To live a long,and happy life
I have a dream
With no surgeries,or medication I will loose 200 lbs
I have a dream
To be all God wants me to be
I have a dream
I'll be able to make donations to charity
I have a dream
To go to my 1st family reunion
I have a dream
To meet my favorite wrestler The Undertaker
I have a dream
To lead songs in a popular choir
I have a dream
To see my Savior face to face
I have a dream
To hear him say well done my good,and faithful servant.

Why Must It Be

Can I let you go? Will you be okay? Where you're headed now...to a better place Listen to my words of forgiveness relieving this pain I'd give anything to have you back again To hold you once more in my arms, one more day of happiness you now dwell within my heart Your innocent smile is forever a distant memory, and the times that we share are precious treasures that I spend reliving The Shadow of Death Took you in just one breath Why must it be? I cry behind this closed door, searching desperately for an answer, yet all I feel is an emptiness inside... despair haunts me forevermore Why did you have to go? Why did you have to leave? Why does this have to hurt? Cancer robbed thy life from thee... Why must it be? Fly away Angel Child of Mine Trod thy broken paths, roam away, fly and be free... Why must it be?

My Trembling Soul (for Joy)

  So now again with day I wake
New mercy from my maker to take
 And for your love to feel my ache
   And beg his mercy not forsake
      My trembling soul for you

 Down on my knees I kneel to pray
 Rinse anew by the promise of day
   My lips linger that I should say
Lord, prosper now your gem of clay
    My trembling soul bids you

    I rise to see the landscape green
So sweetly dressed in the sun's bright sheen
  But saw your face there hang between
    Earth and sky, like a shining queen
      My trembling soul greets you

   Heaven has God, and earth has you
       My soul, a flower, has its dew
       And love its binding work to do
    For God's greatest gift ... so like you
    Trembles still my soul, to joy for you

I love you so 
And in this lifetime you will never know
The love in my heart 
Has been there from the start
The first time on metrodate
The site of our union
We always had our ups and downs
But we weathered through the obstacles
To where we are today
And each day from here forward
Until the precious Lord takes me away
To the place of glory and contentment
But even in Heaven I will be
Watching over you and guiding you
To find the perfect image of me
To carry on the traditions of glorious marriage
Which you will not be deprived of 
While you are still young and beautiful
Which will never change?
For you beauty is endless to mine eyes
For the time being while I am still with you
I will always love, honor, and cherish
Beyond imagination and comprehension
You are my queen and the mother of my children 
Who will grow into the years? 
From youth to adulthood
Knowing they have always been loved
To the fullest extent imaginable
From this day forward
I pray these things in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
Amen

Chorus
Our father is always there
He knows in our hearts what we need
He guides us in our daily lives
Our father he will always be

Jesus is Alpha and Omega

your wash in my blood 
just like a flood
wash from head to toe
in your season you will glow
just wanted you to know

you very dear to me
I feel your sincerity
in the world will be
peace
 you and me



Your sacrifice is what I want
 life is short sorry to be blunt
I die on that cross
even though I am  the boss
I showed love nothing is lost
when I die on that cross
 I am the alpha and omega
my father made me lord and savior
I am in him, he in me
I was sent to do his will
I am the man see
no man can get to the father
accept through me

so look to the heaven and clouds
when I come my angel annouced it loud
Bold and proud,
everybody on those knee and bow
the WORD is here now

Climbing Moriah

I am climbing up Moriah
With the thing I love most dearly;
On the mountain's heights above me,
I will see my God more clearly.
Incredible expectation!
For with the knife and holy fire,
I must on a stony altar
Bind up and slay my heart's desire.

O, this God of mine, all knowing!
Past my finite mind can see
In the distant, vast eternal
All that He destined I should be.
Only He can make a promise,
And He fulfills each sovereign vow;
Though He slay me, I will serve Him.
He led me here, I'll trust Him now.

The knife is raised; beyond the void
I dare not cast my weary sight;
I can hear no gentle laughter 
In the deep canyons of the night.
I will look instead at Jesus,
And His command I will obey.
There are rams in all His thickets;
He is the Christ, the same always.

Osage Sunset

I imagine the echo of the once thundering herds,
Before the Bison succumbed to the tallow vats.
I listen for symphonies of the missing songbirds,
That made the Osage foothills their habitat.

The land that was theirs is no longer pristine,
Now the hills are interspersed with pump-jacks.
Barbed wire fences make today's boundaries clean,
And pickup trucks are the source of most tracks.

In scrutinizing my thoughts I invariably ask why?
While realizing that time man can't rearrange.
Then God paints a sunset on the evening sky,
An awesome portrait that man can't change.

Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

Where have you gone Sweet Mother Of Mine
To that Wonderful Sparkling City
Paved with Golden Streets
And Pearly Gates
Where You'll Shed No More Tears
And have No Fears
Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

Thru brilliant stars Your soul did fly
Across that Heavenly sky
To join the Heavenly Host of Angelical Beings
In search of that Ivory Coast
To plant Your Spiritual Feet
With Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour
Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

To visit with Loved Ones
Who've gone Home before You
Must be a Sweet Reunion Indeed
Just a few short days and I shall join You
From the Cradle to the Grave
Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

Beyond

Beyond each of our hills He leaves a valley,
beyond each arid stretch He'll place a stream.
Beyond each troubled time we may be facing,
God gives us hope and allows us to dream.

Beyond each sunlit day He made a sunset,
Beyond each moonlit night He fixed a dawn.
Beyond each daily problem we may encounter,
God is always there gently urging us on.

Beyond each planting time comes a harvest,
Beyond each harvest a separation there'll be.
Beyond each separation, an eternity to spend,
God is asking, won't you spend it with me.

Understanding VS Acceptance

Don't try to reside within my head
Transforming me to be like Joe or Sam.
Merely try to be a friend instead
Accepting me, like God, the way I am.

For you can't crawl into my skin
Or experience first hand, my pain.
Unless you've walked where I've been
You shouldn't hold me in disdain.

Thoughts I have, How can you know?
Unless opting with you to share.
When through unrest I chose to go
I didn't leave our friendship there.

Realizing that I fit not into your mold
And allowing no clutter in my head. 
For God, gave individually, a lot to hold
Don't try to transform me, accept instead.

In others, seek good, and it you'll find
Judge not on looks, faith or creed.
For in my intellect there hangs a sign
My thoughts are for friends, it reads.















Details | Lyric | |

Listening to God

Will you walk with me?
I feel a change help me see
One I should have made so long ago
Will you talk with me and see me grow
For if I don’t succeed in the journey
I may fall into another lost eternity
Help me leave my pain in the past 
My life is moving way to fast 
So Lord will you walk with me?
Under the starving oak tree

Martyr for the Unorthodox word

If I had over 10,000 dreams You'd be the only thing my mind could see Judgment couldn't be real Succumbing to the fear of this cold life Find a way to break through The self-destruction of wordly delusions Don't tell me I've lived so long in a lovely illusion Break me down until we find a Nirvanic state Then bring me a savior from transgressions An atoning sacrifice Send down to me a messenger for me to submit to Bring me the truth to break through The delusion Bring me the messenger to explain it all And let me leave behind Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Without a will to fight But I have the Means to be free I'll try to go with the word I believe But so many stones to be thrown Stakes to burn, limbs to break Faces to hate, scorns to taste Will I have the will to die Despite all of the tears no one will cry Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Broke my will Safetefied my soul Martyr for the Unorthodox word Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Without a will to fight But I have the Means to be free I'll try to go with the word I believe But so many stones to be thrown Stakes to burn, limbs to break Faces to hate, scorns to taste Will I have the will to die Despite all of the tears no one will cry Sorrow's caressing the earth The caliphate stole my heart Broke my will Safetefied my soul Martyr for the Unorthodox word

Life's Burdens

At times when I'm beset with daily trials,
Or burdened down with cares that life can bring.
The smile that graced my face has suddenly vanished,
And within myself I have no song to sing.

Then all at once my mind begins to perambulate
Back to a moment, upon a cruel tree.
How Jesus paid the price for my salvation,
I feel that His shed blood was just for me. 

Then oh! to get things back into perspective,
I swiftly kneel and go to Him in prayer.
Reflecting to the time when I first sought Him,
And how with arms outstretched He met me there.

So now and then when trouble comes upon me,
And deal with it I feel I surely must.
I'll kneel and bring my burdens all to Jesus,
In Him I've placed my hope, my love, my trust.

You're My Man

You're my man, my mighty king,
And I'm the jewel in your crown,
You're the sun so hot and bright,
I'm your light-rays shining down,

You're the sky so vast and blue,
And I'm the white clouds in your chest,
I'm a river clean and pure,
Who in your ocean finds her rest,

You're the mountain huge and high,
I'm the valley green and wide,
You're the body firm and strong,
And I'm a rib bone on your side,

You're an eagle flying high,
I'm your feathers light and brown,
You're my man, my king of kings,
And I'm the jewel in your crown

YOUR CHOICE

What is it that GOD deals to us, from The Heavens and The Stars?, 
The choices that we make in life, will bring us near or far.
He has given us these two things, they are Life and Free Will too,
as what you choose to do with them, is merely up to You.
You may choose to do the Wrong Thing, leading to The Darkest Night,
Or turn and walk the other way onto The Path of Light.
The Bible says " God Loves Us All " no matter what we do,
All that He is waiting on, is just a call from you!!!!
To tell him you've been going, down a steep and beaten path,
And would he please just show you, Somehow, A way to just get back!!
Now you're Starting Over, and as well you see "  The Light " ,
Your Hope and Faith, God gives you Wings, Now Start A Brand New Life!!

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're running seems all up hill,
When the funda are low and the debts are high, 
And you want to smile but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit 
Rest if you must but don't you quit!

Life is strange with it's twist and turns
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about 
When you might have won but ypu struck out.
So don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

See succees is failure turned inside out.
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never see how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
Because it's when things seem wrong that YOU MUST NOT QUIT!

Pray For Me

I'm here coming to the Lord for the things
 
That I have done for the sins that I made 

And done I am getting on my knees for yah
 
Lord tell yah to pray for me sometime I
 
Feel lost trying to make it to the top I

Tell yah lord come pray for me.

Sometimes I can't sleep telling myself

What life got to do with me

Tell yah lord come pray for me

My moms always tell me to get 

Some sleep but 

I'm always dreaming about 

people dieing on me 

I wouldn't know what to 

Do if someone I loved die

On Me 

Telling yah lord come pray for me

My life would crumble in front of me 

I wouldn't be able to complete the 

Goals set our for me

I'll be praying to the Lord like 

Why she died on me

Honoring Sacrifice

For country, they chose to honor a call,
Now the piercing sound of a rifle's report.
An echoing trumpet, sadly says it all.
Let us hero our young as a last resort.

No image portrays our freedom's cost,
Like that of a flag draped casket.
A mental souvenir of war, un-tossed,
On display from memory's basket.

It serves to remind of a hero's place,
Should we treat it as a mere statistic.
For each had a home, name and face,
Harboring dreams that were realistic.

They abnegated those dreams for a chore,
Accepting that vitality might be tried.
Death isn't made a contrivance of war,
But a mental souvenir from those who died.

Take Nothing For Granted

I deferred the words " I love you"
Until the morrows light.
Words, that from my heart,
I felt impressed upon to say.

For sure, "I love you",
Would have best been said that night.
Still I reserved ownership,
For perhaps some abstinent day.

Instead, from my vast reserve,
Grating words were launched to flight.
Words that once I'd spent,
Could never be recanted.

I had failed miserably,
At living life in the moment.
So, doting on another days sight,
I had taken our time for granted.

The next day's sun, I found,
Rose not for both alike.
Albiet the sky was blue and bright,
My day was overcast.

For from my life,
I allowed to slip, a love untold,
Now I'm forever yoked with regrets might,
Hard and fast.

Regret is felt always when it is too late.

What Hurts

You know what hurts the most
what hurts the most is when you a total stranger treats you better than who you`re 
with
It hurts the most when you turn to your friends,and they`re the ones that ends up 
hurting you the most.
It hurts the most when you go to your family for comfort, and in return of what you 
ask for they turn their back, stick their nose up at you as if you were a stranger off 
the street.
It hurts the most when kids are having kids.
It hurts the most when females no longer respect their values as a LADY, 
MOTHER, and COMPANION.
It hurts the most when men don`t respect women for what they are WORTH.
It hurts the most when you put your all,then to watch it just slip away right in your 
face and you can`t do absoutely anything about it.
It hurts the most when you see people who are addicts.
It hurts the most when we as society can`t see that the government don`t really 
care about us.
It hurts the most when those who are fortunate can`t look at for those less 
fortunate.
It hurts the most when you see how the world is.
It hurts the most when society can not respect and overlook me as being black, a 
lady, and a LESBIAN.
It hurts the most when young boys and girls are not getting the right information 
aboutschool, sex, and drugs.
Final It hurts the most when people forget there is a GOD.

Once broken, but not destroyed!

As I look back over my life, my heart was broken but I wasn’t destroyed,
Many people tried to take advantage of me like I was some kind of a toy.
When I was a child, I had this fixation that I knew what love is all about, 
I cried a lot because that was the only way for me to get things out.
As a teenager, I lost the dearest person to me, who was my mother,
I was angry with God because the pain that I felt was like no other.
My parents taught me how to be the best Christian all I can be,
When I finally got to know God for myself, I was definitely set free.
As I became older I carried around so much hurt and so much pain,
I know I wasn’t easy to deal with, but the family must have felt drained.
At times I had to express my anger by fighting and hurting myself,
The more I keep writing, one day I will see my book on the bookstore shelf
The most devastating thing I remember was the time I was raped,
At the time it was happening I didn’t have the strength to escape.
It also hurt when no one had faith enough to believe in me,
I tried to deal with the rape by becoming rebellious as I can be.
I thought by going to talk to a psychiatrist would have helped replace my anger,
Instead of making things better, he just helped himself on me and putting me in 
danger.
I didn’t want to live after all these things that happened in my life,
If I had killed myself, today I wouldn’t have become a wife.
A lot of people thought that I wouldn’t make something of myself,
They would look down on me like I was some kind of weird elf.
Through all of this, God showed me what TRUE love was all about.
I have to give him all the praise and honor with a loud shout.
I was a type of person that was definitely misunderstood,
I just wanted somebody to take the time out with me if they could.
Well, the devil thought that I was destroyed but I was yet broken,
I can truly say that I’m no longer his rebellious T-O-K-E-N

Time

Through time alone 
A broken heart will heal.
It seems time always changes 
How we feel.
Although we think the pain 
Will never end.
The Lord above will help[
Our hearts to mend.
But time is such
As man cannot control.
And through the years
It lets our hearts grow cold.
But the memories of their lives
We'll cherish still.
Knowing that they
Were God the fathers will.

Heard It

I was in clique

We had everything we wanted and was lovin it

But then one night I got really sick

And death I barely missed

So I said to myself I’ve had enough of this

I decided to quit

But then I thought about who was the leader of my clique

It was the devil and he wasn’t havin it

So he had his people watchin me closely

‘Cause he already knew who I was about to go see

I went to church and the spirits followed me in

The only thing I want is be freed from this life of sin

So they started trippin and grabbin, kickin and stabbin

Fillin my head with voices wantin me to make the wrong choices

But I don’t wanna go back

So I got down on my knees 

And started beggin Lord please

Don’t let me go back to where I was

When I was drinkin and lookin for a quick buzz

I felt you when I was on the corner sellin drugs

When I was pimpin and low-ridin with the thugs

But I changed all for you because

There’s now a difference between where I am and where I was

So the word got back to who I thought was the boss

He said “get her back, no matter what the cost”

But little did he know the old me was lost 

And the only place you’ll find  it is on the old rugged cross

So the “boss” is now in a total mess

Hatin every minute that I was getting blessed

And then it happened…

I died

What’s goin on? I wasn’t ready to leave

But I gotta remember every thing works out for those who believe

It was really quiet as I stepped up on the platform

And as I lifted my head the person standin there was the Lord

With Jesus at His right and the Holy Spirit on His left

Let me just be real and say I was a nervous wreck

The judgment didn’t take longer than a minute

They had reached a verdict

GUILTY…

A big smile went across my face when I heard it

He said “Well done my good and faithful servant”

I Still Remember

I scratch my head and too often wonder
And while gazing hinder I see disarray.
I recall those times of my err and blunder
times void of Jesus to brighten my day.

As I posed the question did any care?
The obvious answer I was unable to see.
Until life became more than I could bear
I found Jesus was patiently waiting on me.

I realized that countless agonized for me
Through prayer straight to God's throne.
But from blinded eyes I'd refused to see
Attempting to do things on my very own.

But during a crisis I became spirit broken
For my body was now stricken with cancer.
I surrendered life entire, not just a token
I accepted Jesus Christ as the living answer.

No Better Friend

When darkness encompasses about you,
And it seems your world's tumbling down.
Just look to Jesus who will lift you up,
And spread His love all around.

For His love is all eternal,
His mercy and grace is your friend.
He'll never leave nor forsake you
And he'll be there 'til the end.

For somewhere over the rainbow,
The sun comes shining through.
The darkness of night is past shadow,
And you'll know He walks beside you.

Believe that you're never alone,
Let Jesus be your guide.
Trust Him, for He'll take care of you
No matter or what err' betide.

So anchor your soul in Jesus,
For on Him you can depend.
Nobody can do you like Jesus
There is no better friend.

Nightmare

Standing alone in the night Dark all around Something doesn't seem quite right I hear a sound Like a werewolf howl Coming from all around And the noise of an owl Piercing red eyes appear Lightning strikes from the sky Death is seeming rather near And I don't want to die Am I dreaming? I hope I'm dreaming? Nightmare Confronting everything that I fear Nightmare The seeming reality of everything I see and hear Down into the ground I fall Deep into the dark Evil says my name, I hear it call The devil's made his mark I run, through the endless cave Stumbling through to find there's no way out Everything is what I've gave I've given up, all I want to do is scream and shout Nightmare! This is everything I fear Nightmare! I think the end is coming near I hope I'm dreaming I wish I was dreaming But I know this is my fate Lucifer, he can't wait To take my soul away There's nothing more I can do or say Nightmare! Losing everything I ever cared for Nightmare! Losing myself even more Nightmare! Nightmare! Nightmare! What I never want Nightmare! My mind is does haunt It don't care What I fear Cause with it, it grows I'm hating everything it knows I wish it wasn't real Everything I see and feel But it's true And just like a Nightmare!

SEARCHING FOR PEACE


Peace, I sometimes can't understand.
Peace, often hard to comprehend.
Peace, although a gift from God I wish I find.
Peace, please come, and stop hiding.
Peace, come touch my heart with a song.
Peace, sing me sweet lullabyes to go on.
Peace, love me, please, come back to me my friend.
Peace. never leave me, ever again.

You mean the world to me

I wake up every morning thinking of you
I lay down at night and what do I do 
I pray that we'll be together
For always and forever 
I want to hold you till you we die
I will find you up in the sky 
And we'll hold each others hand 
Dancing to God's glourious band 

Look me in the eyes, baby please
Tell me that our love will never seize
Can't stop thinking about you 
Every moment just thinking about you
Will you always look at me this way 
Or will it fade away some day
I pray that it never does
Couldn't change back to the way I was

I wake up every morning thinking of you
I lay down at night and what do I do 
I pray that we'll be together
For always and forever 
I want to hold you till you we die
I will find you up in the sky 
And we'll hold each others hand 
Dancing to God's glourious band 

Tell me you love me with all you heart
That your loves strong, won't fall apart
It's happened before
Don't want to open that door
Hold me right here next to you
What else is there to do
I'll tell you how I feel 
This love feels verry real

God Seeks A Man

God, still searches for a man
from crowded earth.
Not to hang for sin a tree,
heal the lame, or give one birth.

God, still searches for a man
who's not afraid.
To stand amid the throngs,
to do as He has bade.

God, still searches for a man
not the ultimate hero type.
But one laborer, for His fields,
It's harvest time, the grain is ripe.

God, still searches for a man
qualifications for this job are few.
A mere willingness of heart
and you will do.

My God

Sometimes my mind ponders, and I sit in wonder, why does God love me?
Because getting along with me can't be easy.
But thankfully He's faithful, nothing I can do to change Him.
Unconditional, He fills my cup to the rim.
There are days like today that I need a refilling, and I know that my God is forever 
willing.
I can gain the world but lose my soul,  I'd much rather stay complete and whole.
Because friendships come and fade away, but I know my God is here to stay.

You Live My Testimony

My love is strong.
I use you though the many things you've done wrong.
The road was long but the past is gone and now you have a new song.
A new page to flip;
A new chapter to write;
A new part on this big script.
Satan may try to tempt you as tainted but don't you listen to his games because 
your life
will be my testimony too.
And now the new words you'll speak and the lives you'll renew will bring glory to 
me and
my son who was slew.
Though I warn you, in this new page your company will be few
People may not get you but they'll run later coming to you with their issues
They'll see how you've overcame and then you'll tell 'em bout me and your life will 
then
be shown my testimony. . . 
                                                     You live my testimony.

Leave the Ninety-nine

We must leave the ninety-nine
To go search and find
The one lost sheep
Wand'ring far behind
We must leave the ninety-nine
To go search and find
The one lost sheep-
Left behind  (Chorus)

Just suppose one of you has a hundred sheep
Then loses one of them and begins to weep
Would you not leave the ninety and nine
And go after the one on your heart and mind
And when it's found you would hold it closer
And carry it home upon your shoulders
Then call all your neighbors and gather all your friends
Celebrating your sheep that's back in the fold again

[Bridge]
Likewise there's more rejoicing
In Heaven up above
Over one lost soul who will repent
Than for the ninety-nine
Who are already found
To be righteous and so obedient  (So..)

(Chorus)

Now suppose one of you has ten silver coins
But then loses one of them from your collection
Would you not light the house and sweep the floors
Searching very carefully for what is yours 
Would you not put away the other precious nine 
And look in every corner until the lost one you'd find
Then call all your neighbors and gather all your friends
Celebrating you have your coin in your hand again

[Bridge]

(Chorus)

[Bridge2]
But don't forsake the congregation
And now's the time for visitation
To lead the lost ones to salvation
With God's angels in celebration

(Chorus)

I'm Lost Without You

I can't help myself 
how does it feel to know that I love you, Baby
I gave you my heart lovingly
I was not trying to buy your love
from past relationships I know that is impossible
I am just a generous person who appreciate you
you captivated me with your smile
it hurts so deeply that I will not be able to kiss your lips again
to know that I won't be able to make love to your mind
is a feeling that is not so kind
I LOVE YOU 
I honestly love you for who are
I could not change for you over night 
if I could I would do it with all my might
You mean so much to me, My Ivory Baby
your lips the color of a rose
your eyes are the color of ebony
your hands so pretty
you can be a hand model
I love your walk 
the sound of your voice when you talk
I am going to miss you more tomorrow than I do today
I pray GOD will guide you in my life again 
some day

Prodical Son

Like a tide in the storm
taking sand from the shore,
tossed and turned to return to the shore twice as strong as before,
So does the prodical son as he knocks on his fathers door...

Bruised and battered his title didnt matter-
His ways brought shame on his family name.
He used and abused- spent up all his fathers money
no friends since its gone-his fun is no more.
Reality begins to set in when he eats with the pigs-
Its kind of ironic when all he had to do is just repent.
So finally he acknowleges the damage he's done and goes back to his father-
who killed the fattest calf for his son...

Like a tide in the storm
taking sand from the shore,
tossed and turned to return to the shore twice as strong as before,
So does the prodical son as he knocks on his fathers door...

Dont you remember when you walked in his shoes?
Dont act like you aint walked in them too-we all have missued.
But like the prodical son we where saved from our pasts, when we got down on 
our knees and asked God for a second chance.
I pray you recieve this lesson, the father wants you to come on home, but many 
reject him.
Were all prodical sons, even you gangstas and thugs- the father wants you to 
come back home- this world is no home, Repent while you can...This is our 
second chance. 
Everyday we get tossed and turned by the enemy-But if you have God's word it 
will set you free.
You was down on your luck before- now your headed for glory-twice as strong as 
before...Take some time out today to call on the Lord!!!

Like a tide in the storm
taking sand from the shore,
tossed and turned to return to the shore twice as strong as before,
So does the prodical son as he knocks on his fathers door...

I May Stumble

As I walk, through the valley, again today...
I want to thank, my Dear Savior, for the Hope
He sends my way.

I am a part of His plan, that He has promised,
to us all, Yes, I may stumble, but He won't let me fall.

My path has seen, many a heartache, and so much pain,
but the one thing I must remember, this was the reason,
my Savior came.

As I walk, through the valley, again today,
I want to thank my Dear Savior, for the Hope He
sends my way.

His Fatherr sent Him, to a place, so full of sin,
where they nailed Him to a Cross,
so our Salvation, could begin.

I am a part of His plan, that He has promised to us all,
Yes, I may stumble, but He won't let me fall.

As I walk through the valley, again today,
I want to thank my Dear Savior, for the Hope,
He sends my way.

Yes, I want to thank, my Dear Savior,
for the Hope He sends my way.

Sometimes I may stumble, but He won't let me fall.

Alcoholism


Alcohol consumption can be a complete nightmare
You can lose your life and your family
So drugged up, you can’t even play solitaire

Alcohol will give you a sense of disorder
Missing your child’s birthday party

From one drink to the next
Never knowing your life is a complete wreck
Not knowing the alcohol long term effects
Not getting any respect
Considered by non-alcoholics as one of life’s rejects
Soon to be one of life’s unknown subjects

Alcohol makes you do stupid things
Sleeping around, married and hiding your ring

Continue to go to your AA meeting
Remember, it’s alcohol you are defeating

Life is tough, but keep God in it
Trust in him and see how you will benefit
Live life and don’t ever quit

Look in the sky, so beautiful and blue
Remember, it is God’s creation and so are you

Heartsong

Heartsong is how I call the beating of my heart.
Sound of feeling when I met you from the start.
Having you into my life highlighted a blissful art.
In my existence you have become the greatest part.

Heartsong is the jingle that I hear whenever you sing.
Your voice that I recognize in my heart is the one king.
In my life, you my dear Honey only mean everything.
The love and happiness our togetherness always bring.

Heartsong is the hum of silence without saying a word.
Now we have to face challenges that recently occurred
What we're going through is difficult but never absurd.
Let's keep our love forever and be free to fly like a bird.

This Aint Real

Your face, 
Made a fake smile, (you said)
I love you,
I need you,
I want you just for a while,
You told me,

Are just words now,
How can we love,
When you love me for yourself,

Chorus: 2x
What are we doin,
If this love ain't real,
What is this feeling,
That I feel,

I'm broken in emotion,
I'm broken in love, (you said)
I need you,
I want you
You're the only one,
I'm thinkin of, (so tell me)
How can we love, 
When there's always someone else,

Chorus 2x
Bridge:
How can we love,
When there's always someone else,
How can we make up,
When you only love me for yourself,

You got me imprisoned, 
Inside your heart,
When kissed
I felt, Like we,
Would never be apart,

Vanity

We race to work then home again
The less we make the more we spend
It doesn't matter what we do 
We can't take it when life is through
But still we want the next big thing
We save it, hoard it, stash and cling
Each idle treasure we pursue
We can't take it when life is through

But there's a revolution coming
To stop all the insanity
A challenge that we recognize
These things are only vanity!
These things are only vanity!
 
Men before us fought for land
To use in ways God never planned
Earth that wasn't theirs alone
No territory's ever owned
Now look at us, nothing has changed
Only our methods rearranged
To fit the latest fad and craze
Could this be the End of Days?

'Cause there's a revolution coming
To stop all the insanity
A challenge that we recognize
These things are only vanity!
These things are only vanity!


Check your heart, look to your soul
Is it really "well" within?
If there be one thing keeping you
Away from God it's surely sin
 Get rid of all that would obscure
The grace of Him who sets you free
Let loose the binds of earthly things
For all of that is Vanity!

Yes, there's a revolution coming
To stop all the insanity
A challenge that we recognize
These things are only vanity!
These things are only vanity!

The Lament For an Angel

All in one faded-black day (but let None forget) In my arms, her body lay (my life was the price to pay) A tragedy, through the lack of humanly shame (do they know pain) My darkly colleen has to suffer no more (Robert nor do you) Let me die (please hear my haunted cries) If I can not see Sophie tonight (live on with my grey) I'm just a mess of despairing words And broken nerves Another mourning, afflicted sight (through decay, love can remain) Solace, sympathy are just more lies She is all I need Until you decide she is just another sadist's toy My Angel, why did you have to fly so far away My Angel, just let one feather stay My Angel has flown away My Angel, why did you have to fly so far away My Angel, just let one feather stay My Angel has flown away (My body is amortal, die I may, Together, our hearts will forever stay)

One Love, A Tribute to Bob Marley

“One love…one heart, let’s get together and feel alright…
As it was in the beginning (one love), so shall it be in the end (one heart); give thanks and 
praise to the Lord, and I will feel alright…” Bob Marley, Prophet.


I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.

We are, but before we can be, we must realize,
that the only way TO be, is I and I – the trinity;
the I and I makes the one that was, is, and ever
shall be – 
the one yearning to be set free 
unto its brothers and sisters to its beginnings 
and endings, 
and on and on and on, and led into infinity
by its singers.

It is the one that does not seek, 
and can only be found; rediscovered 
like the greatest treasure the earth ever buried, 
and the heavens ever knew –
                                the reason for all things…

So dance as one voice; sing as two feet 
pounding
the earth with your glory; 
free the one rhythm that has been vibrating between toes 
for all of time –
dance beneath and above all things,
and sing the songs of freedom!

Rise up, rise up, rise up and dance!
Free the chains from your bound feet,
And feel the weight released –
A trinity of I and I;
One love, one heart, let’s get together
And feel alright…

I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.




*Inspired by Michele's Music to your Pen, contest and my brother in vision, the man himself, 
Mr. Bob Marley who as soon as I put him on, I'm smiling and filled with great light. :)

The Difference Between You and I

You say you deserve this world
You want everything it’s got
You say you deserve it all
That’s the difference between you and I

I know I deserve hell
To be burned with my sins tonight 
I’m such a shameful disgrace
How can one look me in the face

What you do in the dark
Will only be magnified 
When it’s brought to the light 
Everyone has their secrets
Didn’t you know you couldn’t keep it 

You say you deserve this world
You want everything it’s got
You say you deserve it all
That’s the difference between you and I

The pleasures of the present 
Will later not seem so pleasant 
When you have to look God in the face
And tell Him everything you’ve done wrong

If only someone could read your mind
Or take a look into your soul
They would see your innocence is just an act
Don’t you know you better run and hide

You say you deserve this world
You want everything it’s got
You say you deserve it all
That’s the difference between you and I

I know I deserve hell
To be burned with my sins tonight 
I’m such a shameful disgrace
How can one look me in the face

You’re looking for the promise land
But you don’t have God’s grace at hand
You’ve denied everything he has given you
So now God’s mercy is through with you

I chose to trust in God
And I took his hand through the end
I denied my sinful ways
That’s the difference between you and I

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
   
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

My Cup Runneth Over

The Lord is my shepherd, no want shall I know;
I lie in green pastures, by still waters go;
My soul is restored and the right paths He shows--
	My cup runneth over with joy.

Though I may walk through death’s shadowy night,
His rod and His staff comfort me in my fright;
My table is set in my enemies’ sight--
	My cup runneth over with joy.

My head is anointed with oil, and I’ll see
His goodness and mercy each day follow me;
In God’s house forever I’ll dwell and be free--
	My cup runneth over with joy.

	These words written to “My Cup Runneth Over.”

Soul Sisters

Such an Amazing girl god put into my life.

He knew i needed you at that exact time

Funny when we met I thought you were to good for me

But when you approached me the sweetest girl I did meet.

From that day on we have never truly been apart cause I

carry you around everywhere in my heart. You have been the

rock when I needed a friend around, you have been the light

when the darkness consumed me and took away my sunshine

Even when were miles apart the phone connects us and keeps

our strongest bond. 17 years feels like such a short time but

I feel I have always had you in my life. Soul Sisters we were

meant to be.. You my beloved friend are such a fresh breeze

Even after a year apart it was like yesterday that we did part

so through the many miles and through the long hard road

I know this friendship will always survive. Your a burst of joy

to me each day I thank the Lord for the sweet blessing he gave!

The castle of my dreams

The castle of my dreams has the purple windows.
Through this windows you can not see the widows,
only you can see are strange shadows
walking through the mirrors.

The thunder and an angel announce
a galactic storm with extremely changes
for all creatures in our false world.

The mining camp is empty, someone have taken all gold.
These are the same people who have stolen 
our freedom, our mind.

I know one thing about this life 
that the simple wishes never comes.
Only salvation is that you must escape from your mind
because the mind create wishes.

The castle of my dreams is defending us
from our screams, our fears.
The castle of my dreams is made 
by our diamond tears.

DISTURBED CREATURE- Am I

A poem wrote by me, based on Person who is a deserving icon but still struggling hard with his career life and addressed as disturbed creature.

DISTURBED CREATURE--> Am I ??       BY Mrs.Madhavi Suyog Pagare

Am I so insane, Am I so mad,
Dramatic mood of mine is so die hard.
Destroyed my peace, Shattering my dreams,
People call me as disturbed creature.
As like mounting the pain, attenuating the drain!!

Digesting my feelings lying inside me,
Strangely nobody cared, call me sick.
Teasing me lavishly and my heart is pricked,
Hurted me like hell when addressed me as stupid.
As like showering rain, missing on the lane!!

Time lapse in journey of life,
Can hamper anybody on its path.
When I see innate reflex of mine,
I always use to brightly shine.
Though possessing every job attributes of mine,
I never thought the authorities will ditch and hamper my career line.
Falsely acting bloody swine, making my image as fade as wine.
As like affecting harmonious divine, my soul was, as is transparently pristine!!

Destroying me and testing my patience, Never wanna give up.
Transformed deviations, wanna rightly screw up.
I wanna raise up, I wanna shake up.
I wanna wake up, Tranquilize my mind.
Unzip the professional life compressed by the culprits.
Wanna explore myself, driving the motivated heights of journey.
Lastly waiting for the optimistic opportunity.
Cuffing the suspect ,I wanna rejoice by my pattern of life!!

In Memory

She lay upon her bed of pain;
The chrysalis grew dull and gray;
The colors which we knew as her
Were fading fast, so fast, away;
But, underneath the fragile clay,
We saw new colors burning through
Of soul triumphant in its flight
Approaching Glory's avenue.
It seemed we heart her spirit groan,
Her frail flesh tremble 'neath the weight
Of wings fast-pulsing with new life
And yearning for the Infinite.

She's free! Her dewy wings soft-dried
By hovering angel's gentle breath
Have lifted once, now twice they stir
And find the air: can this be death?

That Christmas Feeling

A snowy Christmas is what we all prayed for
Probably because it never happened before
We didn’t need it to have Christmas cheer
But it sure would be nice to see the white stuff this year

You can’t force it; that Christmas feeling just comes to you 
Can’t tell you how, but even when it’s overdue..
Life’s trials sometimes get in the way
But if you’re open to it, that Christmas feeling will come to you and stay
…If you’re open, it will come to you and stay.

One Christmas a few years back, I was having a drink in an old country bar
Listening to a guy play Blue Christmas on guitar
An old bar tender poured me another beer, looked over and said
By the shape of your dungarees, it’s been one hell of a year.

Christmas had me thinking, Is this how it ought to be?
Usually it was a Spirit, most would say Holy, which helped me to see
Then I smiled, ‘cause a thought showed me, it might not have turned out okay
If in 3rd grade, Mrs. Harrington hadn’t sat me in your way

That Christmas feeling will come to you and stay …If you’re open, it will come to you and stay.

The bartender saw the new smile on my face
Said laughingly, That newlywed glow will soon leave without a trace
I didn’t have the heart to tell him, but this Christmas it’s been fifteen years
Since I fell in love with you forever, ‘cause it’s the heart that hears

As I drive up to our home, with it’s simple light show
A feeling came over me and it began to snow
I could hear the kids joyfully screaming inside
And I thanked God that he helped me hang on for the ride.

We all feel low at times; it’s just that way 
But it you’re open to it, that Christmas feeling will come to you and stay
…If you’re open, it will come to you and stay.

Some have asked about how song turned out. Check for on itunes under my name Shawn Sackman. Thanks.

Black and White

You’ve maddened me to the core 
You singed me with your ferocious fire
We’re opposites… we’ll never integrate  
We can’t blend with each other…
Your love and I’m hate 
We’re contrary to each other…

So don’t even think about 
Getting us back together 
Because without a doubt, 
We don’t click with each other…

So let us go our own way…

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be deleted from my mind…

I’m not the one that should pay the price
You act as if you’re an angel from heaven
But, you’re a fiend…a devil from hell...who needs your advice?
Could someone unchain me from this prison?

So let us prepare for that day…

Fear and bewilderment build inside of our minds
Taking over us…we’re wasting valuable time
Terror and wrath injects into our veins…time starts to unwind 
I’m regaining my glory…this moment feels so sublime  

You think you’re innocent?
I can sense your guilt…bleeding through you
Do you live to feed me anguish? 
Don’t deny it…you crafty demon…no wonder I feel blue

Let’s get ready for battle…
I’ll watch you decay…
IT’S PAY BACK TIME . . .
Taste my fury and my agony 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be defeated…

I scream before nightfall
I close my eyes to kiss my demise
I want to disappear 
Scratch away my desolation
Wipe away my tears…
Spewing out of my eyes…like a waterfall
Tonight, there will be dismay
There will be suffering 
After sundown…
Failure and glory will expose like stars in the midnight sky
Who will earn the crown? 
No one knows in silent wars – who can reveal the light in goodbye
  
Why are we black and white?
Are you too afraid to know the reason why? 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to suffer alone…

MY SHEPHERD CARES FO ME

The Lord Jesus is my shepherd,
Green pastures are my bed.
Beside a gently flowing stream      
Of living waters I am led.
And God feeds my hungry spirit    
With His manna from above.
He’s my shepherd, and He leads me           
In His paths of wondrous love.

In the valley of death's shadow     
My  soul  need  know  no  fear, 
For the giver of  all   life
Is forever standing near.
I am guided through the darkness                      
By His constant, holy  light.
He’s my Shepherd and He’ll lead  me    
Through this land of darkest night.   

Though the foe camps all around   me,    
My soul is safe from harm;  
I  am safely in the shelter    
Of God's mighty outstretched arm.  
I  know Satan cannot touch me                     
While my Savior holds my hand; 
He’s my Shepherd, and He’ll lead  me                        
To the happy promised land.

He'll not leave me nor forsake me; 
Of this, I have no doubt. 
And when I get in trouble,                               
He's right there to help me out.  
I have come to trust His saving power; 
His sure truth has set me free.  
The Lord Jesus my Shepherd 
And I know He cares for me.

The Business Plan

We started out with a Business Plan that was truly in DEMAND
Even though a lot of people did not really understand
We must keep our thought's as one and work together 
The both of us will not allow anyone to let our vison shatter
We are working hard from the bottom to the top 
And that's all we can SAY ......
Because we  know we will reach there and apperiate our GREAT reward one day

DREAM WORLD

In the dream world where reality becomes a fantasy 
And fantasy becomes reality.

The impossible is made possible and death becomes no threat. Mountains turn to a plain ground and are surmountable.

In the dream world I can do the impossible and see the invincible. I can spread my wings, soar and fly through the clouds reaching the altitude of my fortune and destiny.

In the dream world I am unstoppable and unquestionable, conquering all my adversaries. The treasures of this world are at my disposal, kings and kingdoms are my subjects.

In the dream world wishes don’t count but choices are made. That is why I have made the choice to have you as mine forever. In my dream world where there is no pain but gain, no distress but fortress, no cross but crown.

The Wedding

Sometimes things are up,
And sometimes they are down,
Sometimes black is white, 
And sometimes it is brown.
All the rivers flowing,
Back to the sacred sea,
All the monkeys climbing,
Up the very same tree.
You think you know a lot,
Think you know it all,
But the autumn leaves are falling,
At the north wind's lonely call.
The thinking of the meaning,
The reasons lost and gone,
At last the place is ready, 
A vacant holy throne.
The emptiness that fill you,
Fills you from inside,
Is the treasure you are holding,
The bridegroom's holy bride.
And now the north wind's blowing,
Blowing down the Way,
And now we sit here waiting,
For the bridegroom's wedding day.

Jesus Was A Rolling Stone

Jesus was a rolling stone,
wherever he laid his head he called home;
and when he died,
the angels came and rolled that stone aside.
I tell you now, Jesus was a rolling stone,
wherever  he laid his head he called home;
and when he died,
the angels, they came down from heaven, sent by the Father;
and they rolled that big old stone aside.
Yes they did, yes they did;
because there ain’t no grave can keep a good man down;
no, no, no;
I say there ain’t no grave can keep a good man down.

With This New Day

I have lived, 
And felt the cost, 
Paid my dues, 
But I have lost_ You. 


 Still I pray, 
As chaos looms, 
And as my blue turns into grey, 
I hear__ 
The angels sing- In tune. 

 Don't be giving in, 
Don't give up my son, 
Or fade away, 
Lift your chin with the sun__ And rise, 
With this new day!. 

 I have lived, 
And felt the cost of all my wonderin ways, 
I've paid my dues, 
I - Have lost you. 


 I can hear the angels sing, 
Your in a mistaken land__ Lessons learned in truth, 
As the grey seeks out the blue, 
She will__ Your daughter my son--- 
She will return--- To You.

For I have lived, 
Felt the cost of all my walkin days, 
I've paid my dues, 
I- Lost you....


I wont be giving in, 
Won't give up my girl, 
Or fade away, 
I'll lift my chin with the sun--- 
And RISE-- 
With this new day...

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Come

Come 
Come
Come
my hands are cold,
my feet are numb,
I’ve been waiting for you to come.

Listen to the rhythmic sound of the drum,
it is summoning you to come,
come and minster to my blazing soul,
and help me achieve my dancing goal.

Leap beyond the shadows of death,
and purge me with your mystical breath,
tear off my sleepless gown,
and cool me down with your powerful sound.

Follow the sound of the drums and come,
If you don’t come I will be undone,
thousands of them surround the gate,
come before it's too late.

Moan
groan
wiggle and scream,
entrance me in your solitary dreams.
pull out your dangling whistle
stretch my body,
breath upon my throbbing flesh,
and captivate me in your powerful net.

Release your knob and come,
shoot me with your inflated gun,
I have waited for this eternal bliss,
but something stands amiss.

Glisten in the Moonlight

Your glorious emerald eyes 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Delight dances in the water
I watch it joyfully
You are set free from the cage...
You're like a dove soaring in the sky
You are the rain...
drizzling down in ecstasy 
A hint of ecstasy is shown in your reflection...
When you caress me... I'm relieved... 
From the stress that forced me in chains
I knew we'd be on the brighter side of tomorrow 
We're glistening in the moonlight 
I knew we'd become candles in the heavens above us
We're glistening in the moonlight
For a moment, I felt your presence...your radiant with sympathy 
I saw at first glance the dark side of you
Tonight, we'll be together and fly through the horizon 
We'll watch the sunset say its last goodbye...
We'll wave a greeting at the moon! 
We glisten in the moonlight...
What if I was as handsome as the lion...
Roaring with pride and pure courage
What if we were glistening in the moonlight?
Would it bring health to our bones tonight?
Would it make our heart rejoice and overflow with delight?
Would we be able to survive this horrifying plight?
Would we be shimmering like a candlelight?
We're glistening in the moonlight... (6)
Ohh...yeah...ooh yeah...ooh yeahh...
We reach to the stars and hope we can trace a shooting star
I feel the coolness run down my fingers...
We're glistening in the moonlight
You're the dandelions in the fields
You're the gorgeous view that I marvel at everyday
When you kiss me, I live my dreams
We glisten in the moonlight
In a quick moment, I sense a feeling of endless renewal 
I roam inside of your illuminating maze 
Glow on... sunshine... 
Glow on...sunshine...
Glisten in the moonlight...
Listen to the truth and rub it in
You are ravishing like the sunset
But you're ascending while I'm descending
I feel extremely guilty
I wish I could glisten with you in the moonlight
You're glistening in the moonlight (6) 
Ohhh yeahh... oohhh yeahh... ohh yeahh
You're glistening in the moonlight (4)
We go our own way
I wish we can glisten like the moon
Glisten like the sun 
There's a dream concealed inside of me...
Reveal your light and pour it upon me
You glisten in the appealing moonlight
While I'm subsiding... you're fulfilling your dreams
Of gliding across the horizon 
You're independence... keeps on scorching with satisfaction
While I'm below you... 
Your emerald green eyes
Stared me down like a hawk...
Your emerald eyes
Gaze down at me genuinely...
I wish we could flee together in reality...
That could be a possibility
To glisten in the moonlight in glee
We were glistening in the moonlight (3)
But that was only a dream...
I'll pray that it turns into a reality
We were glistening in the moonlight 
Now, I've misplaced my delight...
Will I ever experience such a brilliant night?

Butterfly

I once was like a catipiller young,naive,and new
Always living from my heart not knowing what
else to do.Easy to take advantage of, that is 
just the case, people would walk over me
like I was their dirty used up suitcase.
Now I feel a newness coming, like a light
shining from the sky, colors fill my world
and I know I am blooming into a butterfly.
Purple,Pink, Blue and Green I can feel them
flowing through. Colors of the rainbow raising
me into full bloom. Wise and strong I am becoming
My faith leads me where I need to go giving me
insight and wiseness for only me to know.
I have not  done this on my own you see
I have been guided by God and Angels
on this Earth. Wise words the wisdom at
it's best comes from a wise lady who
seems to know me best. Lucky, I am 
to have her in my life, she always shoots
it straight and tells me like it is, knowing
her words touch my heart and gives me tons of faith..
I feel like flying through the sky or climbing 
a tree way up high. I feel like observing the 
world just like a brand new butterfly so as I
Bloom I become Anew something unlike the past
Smart and wise beautiful on the inside and outside 
 a touch of color here a touch of color there
makes me glow and become a beautiful blooming butterfly...

Me Myself and I

Gazing at my reflection each morn
I ask myself “Who is this I see?
Is this ME that was once born?
Or only the face of childhood past,

This likeness of an image worn
Through years of teenage angst
Of manhood severely scorned
Or a memory destined not to last.

As light reaches my mind’s eye
I question “Who is this that I see?
Is this MYSELF that dwells inside
A future guide of trials yet endured,

On which my present me must rely
The keeper of life’s nonstop journey
Of faith’s timeless unseen evidence
A reservoir of hope yet restored.

And finding few answers to my quest
I ask “Who then is this that I see?
Is this I the one whom I know best
Through years of lessons learned,

Suffering’s constant enduring test
Or time’s hidden spirit deep within
Or God’s creation once again begot
A rebirth I've long to see returned.

When It Comes to Faith

When it comes to faith, even pain is a pleasure
It is just about right in every one of its measures
Come please. Join me.
Let’s just say it’s some sort of leisure
Forget all that nonsense about it being 
“A Golden Treasure”
Clichéd exactly like the many notions of 
Happiness, peace, love, religion…
Have all our principles been systematically configured?
Come please. Join me.
For I have been alone in this constant endeavor 
Need some fresh air? Come…
 And we shall breathe in this lovely weather
Suffocation. Panorama of turning backs.
It needn’t even the slightest conjecture
Come. I insist though.
For they always say there’s this light somewhere
In between the darkness
I therefore mustn’t censure
Aren’t we after all in this together?

Walk down this path
I can so simply say it’s better
Realm of faith...
Peace forever...
Yeah I can hear you saying “Whatever”
Apathy how dare you sever
These souls from these futile bodies
Forever?
Come though. I still insist despite all that.
For when it comes to faith, even this pain is a pleasure.

The Ego is a funny thing

The Ego is a funny thing
Tell you what you want to hear
Have you grinning from ear to ear
It’ll assure you of everything

It’ll drive you to achieve
Make you look cool, Make you look mean 
The ego’s got a plan
It’s going to teach what to believe

It’s going to show you what you need to know
Don’t listen to what others say
Don’t worry I’ll guide the way’
Have you looking like a fool, while you’re feeling cool

You need some money, I’ll teach you greed
Dress the part show the illusion
Do a little dance, have a little drink
Laugh and cheat and think its ok

Need a date, first you got to play the game
Put you in a fancy car
Wear shades to hide your eyes
protect you from being recognized

You’re in control or at least you think you are 
Opinionated to the core
Ego dipping, forever tripping
Hand waving finger flipping

The ego’s a funny thing
It’ll miss-lead you in every way
Then call you a friend
Confuse you and do all over again

Have you fighting with all your friends
Like a game without an end
It’s that demon in your mind 
it wants to control you every time 

(Verse 1 repeat)
The Ego is a funny thing
Tell you what you want to hear
Have you grinning from ear to ear
It’ll assure you of everything

Doesn’t matter if its night or day
Cause the ego wants to play
Always laughing when you’re thinking
Right or wrong it can’t be swayed.

Together.. We are one (Revised)

(Verse 1)
I’ve got this new feeling deep within
I hear a chorus of angels singing my name
There’s an energy rising from my heart
Look at my hands their starting to glow

(Bridge)
With a deep breath colors I now see
A message to stand proud stand tall
got this electrical current flowing through me 
my brothers and sisters take my hand

(Chorus)
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart

(Verse 2)
Time is here time is now
Spread your hands across the land
Reach out to your fellow man
Embrace the power of your inner light

(Bridge)
Old will feel young just like children
Its time to teach that anger is not the way
This program of control has got to go
New policy this is the age of a new light

(Chorus x2)
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart

That Light

It is like no other
It is harmony amidst
All dismay
It is peace amidst
All mayhem
For it is only here
That we stand
United,
Sister by sister
Shoulder by shoulder,
I don’t know you
You don’t know me
Yet tonight, like many
Other nights
In ultimate devotion 
Together we shall stand
Together we shall kneel
Only this time with glory
And utter respect,
Our fervent whispers
Rising in the air
Our fingers avidly pointing 
To the sky
Just one
For Allah is only one,
Breathing...
Teary-eyed…
Surrounded by a tranquility
That seeps deep into heart
And a voice that incites
Our musings…we listen,
We contemplate as it recites
As we all stare
Into that light

When I Rise

When I rise I am so thankful to God I can't believe my eyes
He has given me another day to live, it's not the same as yesterday and will never 
be like tomorrow.
What do I do with this new day?
Will I be grateful for the fresh air I am allowed to breath, will I enjoy all the 
beautiful trees, flowers, and the natural sea breeze in the air.
Will I look at this as nothing and take it all for granted.
When I rise and I am still alive I give thanks to God for allowing me to see 
another new day.
When you rise and are still alive don't  waist time complaining about life? live 
count your blessing and pray that you are still able to say when I rise!

Promise

Promise

With a tragic past
I know it still haunts you
Feeling like the pain will always last
Just remember, Just remember
I'm here for you
Keep your strength up
And always stay true

So make me a promise
A promise that you'll keep
Better your life
Before your into deep
I'll stick with you
Even when I'm gone
Watching from heaven
As you carry on
That's my promise

I know its a struggle
Fighting the demons of your past
Don't worry brother
I'll pick u up when ur falling fast
And always in my eyes
No matter what you do
I'll always have you back
No matter the decision you choose

So when you feel
Like you wanna give in
Keep your head up
Remember where u've been
Find your inner strength
And moving toward
What you wanna achieve
Always push forward

The Night Walk.

That night, my heart pleaded i should
Wait over and pass the night at grand pa's 
Old inn.
Enormous was my concern to reach home 
And see Constance La France.... the rambling poet.
About "create your own form, may be?"
I embraced the night and darkness mingled 
With my eyes;

Yonder are night workers,
Here and there they wander,
Seaching for who to plunder,
Oh! what a mighty wonder.
Look at that  supermarket,
And a man with a mask,
Gun and matchet,
He most be a burglar,
Oh! i must be undercover,
Or else i step into danger,
For the night is in dark anger.

"Ahh! ahhh!! ahhhh!!!" the cry of a victim,
Something must have wrought a cry,
Who will be the rescue?
For me, this night walk must linger.
Look at the police, having me as an 
Accomplice, they need my identity and money,
Yet yonder is the victim crying....

Look over there! drug users
Assembling in dark corners,
Swaying like feathers,
In the midst of their daily rituals,
That is never beneficial,
Oh! blind earth leading to an open death.
Group upon groups, stationed in their post,
Looking so malicious, looking so vicious, 
Brandishing weapons, ready for the slaughter,
Gun shoots clatter as a group fight starter.
Charles melody has seen wonder
And endless palaver.

Knives mingled with flesh, blood and bone,
Men eager and bold,
Heads bounce like ball,
Suddenly, calmness......
Gba! gba!! gba!!! another trigger's verdict?
Lord when will these pass over?
For i am likening to salt in water,
Never to calm and ponder,
The night walk seemed not to be over. 

For the night is in dark anger....

We Counted You as Family

The tears burn my skin as they stream down my face
Dripping slowly to the floor
Crashing and shattering on impact
Just as the many pieces of my broken heart have done
You betrayed all of us
It did not matter that we loved you as our own, as family
Like a thief with no thought of the consequences
You stole something so precious 
You took away the innocence of my child 
Crushing it as if it were nothing more than dirt beneath your feet
You show no remorse for what you have done
Only sadness for the verdict that will send you away
An animal is what you are 
Stalking your prey and gaining their trust
Using their faith against them
Luring your victim into your clutches 
Then taking away the life that is within them
Even the title of child rapist is too kind for you
My beliefs are stained by the blackness of your soul
My heart is hardened by your selfishness 
The evil inside of you has demolished something within me
Yet it has not consumed me
You have no respect for the unity that we tried to share with you
We were merely a stomping ground for your greed and lust
Nothing you do can replace what you have taken from us
No pain that you suffer can compare to the agony you have caused us
You cared nothing for the laws of men or God
My faith is lost to many because of men like you
I can’t help but wonder how anyone could be so cruel

A Mans Worth

A Man’s Worth
By Nate Spears


I’ve never been god’s gift to the world
But I am a man
A man with a gift 
A man with a plan
A man of mistakes
But a man of honesty
A man with integrity
That’s the man inside of me. 

For what you believe in; stand for
Be the heart of your family
The flaming torch
Be the hand that feeds
Be the hand that heals
Be the hand that nurtures
Be the hand that kills

Be the hand that serves 
Be the hand that protects
Be one hand in your household
That demands respect; and is
Truly blessed
To have a beautiful family
Making you the whole of a man
Bringing a new meaning
To the soul of a man
With respect 
With honor
With courage
Be a symbol of depth
Making mankind reflects its intent
On this earth
As is in heaven
Amen.

The nightmare of reality

Can’t help but dream of the fear
The fear that brings a tear
Entering the gates of hell
Seeing how far I fell 

From the bottom of the skies I cry
I’m encaged in this dark cell
From the top of my lungs I scream
I’ve reached the pits of hell

Waking in this nightmare of forever
Sitting with this hopeless endeavor
Paying for every second of my sin
Regretting the fact that I’ll never win 

From the bottom of the skies I cry
I’m encaged in this dark cell
From the top of my lungs I scream
I’ve reached the pits of hell

Sitting alone
in the flames
Reflecting on everything
That caused this pain
Lived a life of lies
Mocking the truth of the wise
Instead of chasing the only way to succeed
I chose to live in my selfish greed 

How did I look into the wonder of the night
And not choose to give God my life
I refused to live with faith
Instead I chose to spit in God’s face

From the bottom of the skies I cry
I’m encaged in this dark cell
From the top of my lungs I scream
I’ve reached the pits of hell

Push Up

i could sit here. day in and day out
thinking of the most proper way
to let the ink in the pen spill out
but as of late im feeling prehistoric 
so much weight on my shoulders 
and i dont know where to go
resuscitate my soul
look back up and head to the goal

so much evil around. i feel like the devils workin double shifts just to bring me down.
on the road to redemption
you can take a seat up in the front section
just so you can feel the emotions
in this electric notion

i've done a lot of things that hide the halo
let it all collaborate when i medicate 
now look at me, mind workin like plato
formulate a new path to take so i can
maneuver through all the mistakes 
we all know we cant change what we've already made
but we can change the next thing we create
startin to sound like a serenity prayer
5 steps till im thirty
and the twenty four before i was never a player
found out when the lights came back on im strictly a lover
its the strongest drink for your soul, when its thirsty
so careful how much you intake or be left hungover
even worse be the one she ran over

i dont mean to come off like im too deep
but the obstacles made there way through just to scrape through
and leave me suffocating
just for me to re-invent a new way to breathe, re-decorating

is your life so complicated 
you rather wet up your pillows and revoke from the life you live
just think of your kids mourning 
theyll never see that pretty face in the morning any more
cheer your self up
you got a lot to live for
your a gem and im that friend
trynna appraise the value 
that you dont see inside of you


just another day for him
goin about
searchin wonderin what his purpose is
running in circles 
till he found a way through all the turbulence

Stand on your own two feet

What will you do when you lose everything you own
How will you feel when you lose everything you once called home

Don't you know
They'll stab you through the heart
They'll bring you to your knees
They won't let you go
Until you lose your faith
So stand up to the ground
Don't let them bring you down
Put your faith in God
Don't let them bring you down

Are you prepared to lose your friends, your family
Are you willing to walk the streets alone
Do you have faith in God above
Do you know what it truly means to fall in love

So
Stand on your own two feet
Hold on to what is true
This world is a scary place
But God has blessed us with love we can't replace

Don't you know
They'll stab you through the heart
They'll bring you to your knees 
They won't let you go
Until you lose your faith
So stand up to the ground
Don't let them bring you down
Put your faith in God
Don't let them bring you down

When these troubles come
Please my friend
Don't give into the fear of death
When these troubles come
Please my friend
Hold on to your faith
Never lose what is true to you

So 
Stand on your own two feet
Hold on to what is true
This world is a scary place
But God has blessed us with love we can't replace

What will you do when you lose everything you own
How will you feel when you lose everything you once called home

My Eyes your Eyes Hand in Hand

My Eyes Your Eyes Hand in Hand
We will complete this vison that people may not understand
I know  we can do Anything Hand in Hand
Let us not lose focus like they want us to do
If we get off track we'll have to start back
My Eyes Your Eyes Hand in Hand
You have two and I have two 
When we use them together we can make our dreams come true
Remember My Eyes your Eyes Hand in Hand
Let's  stick to the plan and do this thing while we can!

Umid

Umidin topragi  sevgi
Ofkem olsa  gozyasi
Tufan  olsa sondurse
Bitmeyen yanginini anilarin

Umidim sevginin atesi
Hikayesi anlatmakla  bitmez
Uyanirim kaygilanirima
Duslerim seni her gece 

Korkmadan yilmadan
Dusunurum yolunu
Duydukca adini uzaktan
Aglar yanarim her gece

Dalgalar ve ruzgarlar 
Ve bitmeyen yagmurlar
Yine kosarim umide
Nefesim aglatir beni
Dogarim yeniden umide

Umidin hayalinde sensiz
Yasarim gunahlarimi
Sesizligin olumunde
Sensiz her gece 

Kul olan agacim yeserse

Elysium Dream of Love

I close my weary eyes
Holding onto the hope
Of not having to cope
Not a mintue longer
Without you by my side
Not expierencing
The warm look in your eyes
The tingling rush of your finger tips
That would grip my hair tight
To stop you from slipping into the night
Biting  your bottom lip
As a pinch to yourself
To see if it was real
The dream of love we felt
And now that you are gone
I only wish to die
Your image fades from my mind
Sometimes I see it clear,
The sun is skillfully stroking it set in the sky
As my feet float down the road across the tuscan country side
I ever so gently sense the wildy grown wheat
Tickling these troubled lines engraved in the palm of my hand
I playfully pick one out of the land and pluck the grains
I look up and in the distance is where she waits
But there she remains peacefully strolling through the calming field
In a white cotton dress that tails off in the wind and
wearing a small confident smile that makes my yearning heart yield
Whispering in my ear that soon I will make it home
But my Life's journey must continue down this God paved road
I awake with the longing of her, But with so much to do
I need God's strength for one more day to get through

Woman's Psalm

Forgive me, Father, 
for I don't understand 
what I do. 
I don't know how or why 
my mind and spirit 
gets so caught in this hook , 
over and over. 
I yearn for You to refresh me, 
and refill my inner man. 
I yearn for truth, for love, for beauty, 
smiles, laughter, sunlight...
a calm blue sea..
a garden of boastful flowers. 
I yearn for my purpose, my duty, 
the Divine Direction. 
I yearn for an angelic lover 
to lie down and live with me. 
I ache to have a tiny creature in my arms 
with those bright and heavenly eyes 
that stare at me thinking that the world is innocent. 
I cry to be set free, 
the spell broken, 
the demons cast out, 
the shackles unlocked. 
I mourn over the golden and pink clouds 
that have abandoned me. 
I weep for the Father 
to pull me out of this snake-infested cradle, 
for Him to sweetly sing a soft sonnet 
of consolation that rocks me to sleep, 
escorts me back home. 
I desire to write madly with explosion...the way a mad man would play the fiddle. 
At this moment, I surrender. 
I bow to Thee. 
I submit to Thee. 

Here we are again. 
Let's put it to bed. 
Let's watch it scorch in the bonfire. 
Let's bless it as we bury it. 
Pour the dirt on down..down...down....
deep down into the dirt. 
It's going to be a battle. 
It always is. 
This is a big one. 
Nothing too big for Thee, 
the drum of my heart. 
" My Sweet girl, 
come to me. 
Eat and drink. Suffer no more. 
You are my dear, 
forevermore."

Words of Life

Drowning in the pool of anguish…oh…oh…
I’m venturing into the forest…and I want to hear the words seep out 
Release these aching sorrows…I worry my soul’s drying out…
like a drought…
Drain out the fluids from my heart
It’s gouging me…bruising me to the core…

**chorus** 
Embrace the light…embrace the midnight sky…
You fall in my arms – you die so warm
Shed me more sun to lift up my spirits
From the…underground…and release me – I’m breathless
I’m drowning in doubt…ooh… oh… 


Remember me…I’m falling…into my swirling fate…hanging on the roots 
Strangling my heart…distorting in my veins… I’m bleeding so softly – cut out the wood…
Splintering me…I’m shattering… and I’m falling in the abyss
Bring me more radiance from my candle light
Warp me up in bliss…don’t let the midnight sky…don’t take away my delight
From the…ocean…and save me—save me…oh… oh…  I’m failing 

*chorus*

I’m drowning in regret…ooh..oh…
Hit the bull’s eye in my heart…embrace the light
And don’t leave me hanging in the abyss…hand me a kite!
Save me before I fall apart…shut out the night
And don’t let the dusk escape us…

I must confess…
I must confess…
I hate to see you abandon the light…
But I’m not the one to save you from the night
Ooh…ohh…

*Chorus* 

Splintering lies fill your heart 
I want to kiss it goodbye…
But you’ve mastered it like a piece of art
I want to kiss the abyss and die…
Dry… I wanna touch the sky with my whole soul
But I’m failing and the end of time has taken its toll
Tainted sorrow…swims around me…I dwell where the waters depart
But the anguish still swarms in my heart…
I’m failing…my heart stops beating
And my desires are fleeting
From my grasp
And the monsters laugh at me…as I fall… 

*chorus*

Embrace the midnight sky…catch me…catch me…
As I fall in death’s arms…I die so cold
And your heart is made of gold

Untangle the darkness & take away the nightmares 
Answer our prayers & block out the night 
Erase the heartaches & wipe away our tears
Unravel Your words of life & delight

Right Now

In the exact moment that I am right now
I stand in a sea of vulnerability;
susceptible to the effects of causes around me
and since I am fully aware, 
I own my surroundings
I am one with sounds and vibrations
resonating from the earth;
I am that pulse of the drum beat 
thats been thrashing 
inside me since birth

Right now, I am exactly as I am
deeply flawed and misjudged
used, victimized and persecuted
Right now I am you in the absolute

Right now, I am exactly as I am
balanced, whole and complete
attracting abundance and certainty  
Right now I am peace - still you
 
Right now, I am exactly as I am
You

Song Within Me

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

I want to learn about my God
about his love for you 
his love for me
about his mercy and grace
I want to see his face on the day of days

oh, I know that it is  true
I know there's a song bagging to be free
living within me. 
I want to sing his praises  
I want to sing his name so all may know Jesus. God of Gods, King of Kings shine 
your love, your light, your grace upon me.

God the father, you sent only son to help us find way back to your loving grace 
How beautiful your way, guiding us taday 
Loving us the the way you do

Oh, how I long to know you, to see your holy face, your love and grace for the 
children you create how merciful your ways

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

For All Time

   Feel your heart pounding inside your chest,
Enjoy all of your life for it is the best.
   Hold tightly to the one that excites you,
Show the love inside you is what you must do.
   Remember to hug with all of your might ,
As you lay yourselves down at night.
   Spend every moment you have making memories,
Of the love you shared for all to see.
   Build your foundation with trust and faith,
Or you'll be all alone and this will be your fate.
   The hopes and dreams you both have ,
Will be wonderful and you'll never be sad.
   Find the path you walk with your heart,
Things in life will go smoothly from the start.
   Do these things and you just might find,
That your love will last for all of time.

Draconian II

[The Puppeteer]
The storm I see you in
Caught in the race of Caïn
Held by the arms you cannot see--the conducter of Ennui 
-No stronger than the void you hold within-
It began with a hope, an obsession
Casted into, slavery of repugnant possessions 
Granted by, the Avaricious Lords, the ones we serve for
-They Told Us to pray, hope, away from despair, the despair caused by their immaculate Hands
Malice, envy, greed, was granted to me, The Feudal Dream, we want to be Them, just like him
-just how he solaces us, ambivalent hope, engendering knives to my throat 

[The Fall]
In this Valley of morning and weeping
Love lies bleeding, in desperate fear
With their talons, the hunt to rip out thy heart 
As each velvet petal falls apart
Her body chained in their bile and lies, covered with their red-spy
-sent just to check if our souls are in line, do not defy 
Her blood velvet and pure, drips away with innocence of the amber guardian 
The soil of plagues, beggars, and graves
Is know her home, the coven of solace
Though the seed has died--resurrection Is near passing through death's fear
One stronger than you--and thy funeral skies
She is alive--anew
But the vapors still remain
The Apocalypse is here, do we fear?
Just for the death of our sins
Elysia never Seemed so far away

[Our Damnation]
Solitary ruins, Fulfill their visions
We strayed far from the depths within 
We all lingered to his solace--lies
-you make the sign everyday, but lack toknow the name
We are just the toys, he pulls all of the strings
We are nothing in this burning world
of Decadence, and Failed Semblance

[Draconian] 
Draconian--Reach for the shadows within
Draconian--Break from the Fallen's son
Draconian--Their empirical lies, only die
Draconian--Reach the shadows within

In my corrupt stead

Draped from her body, they sparkle like gold. Tear soaked and smothered, in lies that she's told. She wears them ashamed, but she wears them with grace. To cover the pain, that is etched in her face. 
  It's her mark, it's her passion, her reason to breathe. As shallow and weak, as pathetic can be. 
  For the last time I saw her, was the last place she laid. Where I held her so close, deep down in her grave. No more to be seen, no more to betray. Damned and unheard, while she cried out in vain. 

Don't pity the evil, corrupt and forsaken. Who've strayed from the path, that they should have taken. It's all self inflicted, they live unrestricted. But on this their last day, they'll all be convicted. 

Etched in his body, the scars will remain. Blood soaked in madness, he's nearly insane. He wears them in anger, but he wears them with pride. To expose to the world, all his hate that's inside. 
  It's his mark, it's his passion, his reason to breathe. As shallow and weak, as cruel as can be. 
  But the last place I saw him, was the last time he raged. Where I beat him and broke him, deep down in his grave. No more to be seen, no more to be heard. Damned and destroyed, underneath all his dirt. 

Don't pity the evil, corrupt and forsaken. Who've strayed from the path, that they should have taken. It's all self inflicted, they live unrestricted. But on this their last day, they'll all be convicted.

Now sift through my ashes, gather up all my bones. Let him without sin, cast the first stone. Pile me up in a bucket, and leave me to stay. So I can face my creator, on my judgement day. 
 It's my life, it's my passion, it's what I believe. As misunderstood, as reckless can be. 
  For the last time you saw me, was the last time I prayed. Where I dug my own hole, and laid down in my grave. No more to be hated, no more to be feared. For in my corrupt stead, an angel appeared.

GOD IS HERE

GOD IS HERE!

Embodied is the mind.
The brain personifies.
I’m alive.
A big girl has become a woman.
The world may say I am nothing.
God says I am somebody.

I climb to ascend.
I went up to come down.
I bend my knees in prayer.
I open my mouth to song.
If I fail in goal, I did try to bring peace within.
Clearly, God and I are in unity.

Safeguarding the things that are important
Making the Lord the highest priority
Wearing the armor of God in all battles, strength is given by Jehovah.

Ascend to climb.
Come down to go up!
On bended knees, pray.
Song comes from mouth.
I shall not fail!
I shall be healed!
To those that desire unity, God is here.

Before and after thoughts have become, the past provides insight.
It will burn if I do not take care.
A blaze of light and I lack fear.
The need to know stands.

May God deliver souls!
May the Lord make all of us whole!

I descended to climb.
I am calm to be profound.
Praying to God through song, knees I bend.
I shall not fail.
My spirit forms.
God and I are one.

(ORCHESTRA/MUSIC)

So I climbed to ascend.
I went up to come down.
So I bend my knees in prayer
I opened my mouth to song.
I did not fail in goal.
I did bring peace within.
Clearly, God and I are in unity.

I ascended to climb.
I came down to go up!
On bended knees, I prayed.
Song came from my mouth.
I did not fail!
I was healed!
To those that desire unity, God is here.

I ALREADY HAVE

It's hard to say goodbye
It's really tough to let go
You don't think I can
There's something you should know
I already have

You think that I can't stand
Without you by my side
If your pride didn't blind
You'd see I didn't hide

Your beauty's growing thin
Tired of your same show
Think I'd never walk away
There's something you should know
I already have

I'm ready to start again
Going to give life a fresh go
To mend a broken heart
There's something you should know
I already have

I already have
I already have

The announcement

Sitting at the airport waiting to depart, an announcement came over the air
causing much despair.
I thought to myself don't panic don't get discouraged just be patient and wait!
God is still in the plan even when we don't understand,so I took out my pen and 
pad and begin to write. I wanted to distract my mind stay focus so I could 
concentrate.  People started to complain a few of them started to go temporary 
insane, talking about all the things that could be happening to the plane.
I told my brain not to take any of the comments in to stay calm, all this negativity 
can do me a lot of harm.
I said don't worry about what you hear and have no fear God is the pilot and he is  
always near.

It's only an announcement!

In The Name of The Father

In The Name of The Father…

Everyone gets the chance to believe in their God
At least once in our lives we all look to him for strength
Everyone has the opportunity to engage in his faith
Faith that can move the mountains
For the souls who can’t be saved by themselves

There’s a solemn voice that cried to me one day
A voice within myself whispering again
In the name of the Father are the words I am trying to say
In the name of the Father, I pray…

As one in congregation, all gathering in mass
Asking for forgiveness and for all suffering to pass
For those who have been before and for those still to come
One voice is rising up in anticipation of salvation

There’s a solemn voice that cried to me one day
A voice within myself that is whispering again
In the name of the Father are the words I am trying to say
And in the name of the Father, I pray…

Hope is for the hopeless ones and faith for the faithless
Redemption waits for everyone
As one we’re no longer faceless…

As one in congregation gathering in mass
Asking for forgiveness and for all suffering to pass
For those who have been before and for those still to come
One voice is rising up in anticipation of salvation

…In the name of the Father are the words I am trying to say
And in the name of the Father, we pray…

Turn on your light

Turn On Your Light.

Turn on your light

Turn on your light
Light the velvet softness of your night
You might have felt that breath of sweetest power
In that silver moon
That paints the twilight hours
Have you ever felt that mystic pull
That takes you from the smallest flower 
To melt into the all.

I sometimes stand there staring at the sea
As each wave reaches out to destiny
To fade and then to come back
So another wave might form
To be destroyed
Then to be reborn….

Turn on your light
Pass no judgment, who’s to say what’s right?
 No need for this when light is shining bright
Have you felt such magic
Have you felt that pull
It’s something that must happen to each fool
He must learn how to melt into
The silence of the all.

The secrets they be wrote within your soul
Seek them out and let them make you whole
Each flower it must bloom then die
So know your precious I
Must be destroyed
To be reborn…

Heroes

Heroes
Dedicated to the heroes in my life

They say everyone has a story to tell
But it sure seems like we've been through hell
They say everything will be alright
But it sure seems hard to make it through the night

Heroes are the ones who wear the mask
Heroes are the ones who fade into the black
Day by day they’ll fight to save you
Night by night they’ll always stay true

When life is so full of pain
And we get held down by every single chain
In the end it feels like there is no one to trust
Always being left in the dust

Heroes are the ones who wear the mask
Heroes are the ones who fade into the black
Day by day they’ll fight to save you
Night by night they’ll always stay true

Sometimes it’s hard not to feel left behind
Hope seems so far from my mind
It’s too easy to cling to the pain of my past
It’s hard to believe love could ever last

But when I think of the times I spent with you
I remember how it felt like I could begin anew
I thank God that you are in my life
It helps to know I’m not alone in this fight

Heroes are the ones who wear the mask
Heroes are the ones who fade into the black
Day by day they’ll fight to save you
Night by night they’ll always stay true

They say everyone has a story to tell
But it sure seems like we've been through hell
They say everything will be alright
But it sure seems hard to make it through the night

Living Without

I tried to write about love but I haven’t felt it. 
I tried to write about the sea but I’ve never seen it. 
Then I tried to write about the air, but I have never breathed it. 
I tried to write about magic but I never believed it.
I couldn’t write about god, all I have ever done is sinned.
And when I tried to write about life I found, 
I have never really lived.

Thank You Lord

For years I bore the burden for one lost soul,
That should the rapture come she'd not remain.
Inspiring her to seek God's face was my only goal,
That there was a Hell to shun and Heaven to gain.

She's Earthy and one for whom I grew to care,
A simple blue jeans and tee shirt kind of gal;
And if I could see into her heart I'd surely stare,
She's a woman that o'er the years became my pal.

She's grown so much from our first meeting day,
This growth recall prompts my smile to show.
For she now knows that Jesus is the only way,
From my hearts fullness come the tears that flow.


There is no feeling more gratifying or responsibility greater,
than the burden God gives you for the soul of another;
Shirlene, I hardly knew you when God placed you on my heart.
What a blessed day that turned out to be.

Jesus Loves Us

Twinkling stars,
Like fireflies from a jar;
Amid moonbeams,
Shining down from afar;
His tears appear as rain,
Upon parched earth;
His breath a soothing breeze,
At each day's birth;
Life sustaining moisture,
Arrives as morning dew;
Happenings that affirm,
God's love for you.

Romans 5:8 KJV

A person I've met before

You are a person i've met before.
The man who stands knocking at my door.
I remember you from my dreams,
Your eyes sparkle and your smile gleams.

You held the door open as I ran in for shelter from the cold weather & rain.
You are the man I stood next to in line.
You are the man I passed by
I danced as you sang the songs chorus.
I pushed my way through...
the sea of people and stopped next to you.
Amidst the crowd we stood, searching for a way out
I looked around, I glanced in your direction, I looked past you 
I found my way out, I hurried my way through.
I walked away having not met you.

A second glance, I did not take,
unaware that our meeting was fate.

You are a person i've met before,
Sometime ago on a night like tonight,
The air was warm, the stars shining bright
The night that we met,
I danced that night, I danced and danced until the morning light
I sat to lay my feet to rest, you came to me no different from the rest
You asked me for a cigarette.
An open chance to conversate 
knowing this interaction would not lead to a date
We shared thoughts and ideas of similar interests.
such as music and poetry, art and astrology.
At the time I thought nothing of it, a casual meeting of the mind.
Little did I know, I would continue to meet you throughout my lifetime.

You are a person i've met before,
I've read your book of poetry at the local book store.
you write of life, love and family.
You are a person i've met before,
I've seen your paintings, they are hard to ignore
You are the artist I dream of meeting
You are a person i've met before.

You are the man in my dreams, 
Your eyes sparkle and your smile gleams.
I've met you 100 times before,
You are the man who stands knocking at my door.

Wisdom of Heights---Climb with Me

This morning
bells toll
a trumpet sounds
but refuses to blare
it just doesn't know 
how to harm
what it takes
to infect the living 

trees
earth
and sound
survive sadness
out last the past
bond brothers and sisters
of sky
air 
mud 
and water
as it loses 
to a force

some days...

this morning
it wins
because the vibration knows god
and is ONE

and though human imperfections
sit in the shadows of it's path
perfections will
and forever will
prevail

people
so arrogant 
we choose to destroy 
but how can we concentrate 
on methods of malcontent
when god sits at our breakfast table?
urging
as father urges child
"get up!"
"move on!"
"stand on two feet!"
"breath child!"

he tolls the bell
as we lay on deaf ears
he loosens ties with anger 
as the path warns and wears
thrusting
driving this cosmic ship 
of no loses
only tiny
arrogant setbacks

and he smiles
for he knows
what we yet
have to find...
and all is well.

Beyond the Frontier

Where am I? Why is it dark?
This isn’t what I had in mind when I left the park…
Why isn’t the wind whispering…the songbirds singing?
All I remember is a telephone ringing…
A scream and a crash and a pain in my side…
Is this what happens after one’s died?
I don’t feel like myself, I feel wild and free,
Yet I’m cold and alone, 'stead of filled with glee.

My whole life I’ve studied, and pondered, and prayed,
Trying to fathom what would happen this day
But now that it’s here, I’m beginning to fear
Maybe the afterlife’s not what it appears…
It’s certainly not what I’ve been told by my preacher
Or my parents or brother or best friend or teacher…
Is it a bad thing, or is it good?
Maybe it’s just not quite understood...

While I was on Earth, I just couldn’t wait
To meet good St. Peter at the heavenly gate
And ask him a question or query or two
“What was my purpose?” “What good did I do?”
“What’s it all for?” “How does it all flow?”
“Can I have one more body, one more try, one more go?”
But where is the angel? Where is the gate? And
If this is Hell, then where is Ol’ Satan?
Am I a lost soul? Am I forgotten?
Am I to be left here until I am rotten?

Lo and behold! what, now, can this be?
Is this a wonderful spiritual epiphany?
Is this the magical feeling all souls receive
When they leave Earth? Oh! was I that naïve?
How could I have not seen the realism?
Why was I consumed in man-made idealism?
This is more wondrous than all I was taught
Oh, all the times I argued and fought
With others, ‘bout how their views were asinine
Now I see, theirs were just as wrong as mine!
Little I thought was actually correct!
How, why, did I let others petty beliefs infect
My untouched, my pure, my virgin mind?
I regret all the hours I self-tortured to find
That compared to what I see now, I was empty and blind…

Wait - - What is this that I see?
What is this gateway that is revealed unto me?

Now a door is opened to my immortal soul
I am expected now to enter my life’s final goal…
I am scared, intimidated, but still I am glad…
For the truth I have just seen is anything but bad.
This is the end of my journey, I’ve nothing to fear,
For now I am going Beyond the Frontier.

Welcome to the Planet

Welcome to the planet
Wake me when it’s over
The dreamer’s always tempted
To come around and show her

And I just keep wastin my time
On girls that won’t love, me, like their wine
And it’s just too easy to blame
The rock and the system for causing my pain
And I just want you to know that I’m through
With being alone, when I’m with you 
And when you mask the truth with your lies
It just won’t get any better for the rest of your guys

And when you fall asleep
The night covers your tears
And the darkness sees you weeping
Cause your conscious can’t be cleared
This year you’re feeling colder
Your heart’s a little older
You haven’t found your soul mate
And now you think you’re too late

But one look inside of my eyes
Gives you the hope that there’s a guy
Who can make you feel happy and sad
And it’ll be worth it to feel that again

HOLD ON

HOLD ON




In this world today we shall all face

Many trials and tribulations,

But we must persevere by holding on to faith,

And remember….. We are God’s creation.

He didn’t put us here to live in fear, be alone, or in want - 

We drink of His blood after we break, and eat Host

And He said, “I leave you a comforter”,

Which is the Holy Ghost.

Therefore let us all in Him rejoice

No matter the perils that will come.

For the strong will survive, take heed and abide -
In the Word of the Almighty One.

And if we stay true to the one and only Savior & Lord Jesus Christ


We shall inherit His promises of glorious riches

And with Him have everlasting life.

Love over Hate

Broken promises
Meaningless words
Empty feelings
Secrets unheard
Thoughts racing
Heart wondering
Feet pacing
Tears thundering
Illusion of love
Faking of fate
Imitation of above
Leaking out hate
Purity in the day
Darkness at Sun fall
Finding a way
To conquer it all
We unite
Infiltrate
We Fight
Love over hate


Details | Lyric | |

The deepest love

The life that we lead doesn't seem worth it sometimes
When all hopes and dreams are shattered
But hope isn't lost, for faith can make you whole.
Don't give up, and always stay strong.

Trust is a gift that's often squandered
The darkest of days are met with despair
I'm reaching out to you to let you know that I still care
Do you still believe in me?

Many vows are spoken in the deepest of the soul
A time in life where we have no control
Keep your head up for I'll never forsake 
This I will promise you.

This bond I make, forever it is yours to keep
Sealed with love, in faith we do receive
Paid not with money but the blood of an innocent man
Life for you to live eternally.

Song For the Lord's Supper

The cup of blessing now I take
I break the sacred bread
And no more again shall he make
Calvary's journey dread
Or sleep in a tomb for me
He opened that tomb for me

The hug of righteousness I feel
An outcast no more I
I wear love's sovereign seal
And joy for rags of sigh
His holy blood cleanses me
His broken body frees me

The cup of blessing now I take
I break the sacred bread
My soul a dove in praise awake
And in his footsteps tread
Sing glory to my redeemer
My God, my king, my savior

Sing glory to my redeemer
Love clothed him in his pain
For my sins you God did suffer
And grace flowed from your vein
I take the cup, drink by faith
And your coming soon await,

One By One

One by One…

Concrete words cement my fears, one by one commit to line
Carved in stone all through the years
A labor of love and time
A lesson to learn that nothing good will come
To those who cannot wait 
A patient man whose concrete words
Serve to document his fate
And one by one they’re commit to line
One by one with love, through time…

I can’t help but keep coming back to that which brought me here
A mere mortal man who finally learned how to keep his conscience clear
A lesson learned that nothing good will come to those who cannot wait
A blessed man is he whose love can survive in all this hate
And through darkened days still hold the line…
Balanced on the straight and narrow

Concrete words cement my fears, one by one commit to line
Carved in stone all through the years
So some good would come in time…
One by one, a labor of love and time
One word, one day, each in its own time…

Concrete words cement my fears, one by one commit to line
Realizing just how clear it is, this is only part of the design…
Better times will soon arrive…believe

Through the foreign land

Verse 1:
What else can I do
But scream out for you
When everything comes to nothing 
I’m trying to hold on to something

Chorus:
Won’t you take my hand
 And walk through this foreign land
I know it’s frightening now
But I know we’ll figure this out somehow

Verse 2:
This blinding darkness is everywhere
And now I’m being dragged to despair
All I can see are the haunting glares
God are you hearing my prayers

Chorus

Verse 3:
I need you now more than ever
I’m failing every single endeavor 
All these demons staring me in the face
This is more than I can take

Chorus

Verse 4:
I didn’t believe this till now
You’ll figure this out somehow
I’m just a sinful man
And I’ll need you till the end

Chorus: 
Won’t you take my hand
 And walk through this foreign land
I know it’s frightening now
But I know we’ll figure this out somehow

Verge of Collapse

Verge of Collapse…

I look around me at friends and enemies
Unable to really tell who is who?
A handshake with one hand
And a back stab with the other
Depending on which will suit their needs...

I fall prey to the theory that all men are good
A fool in the darkness is what I’ve become
A change in the making for better or for worse
I will stand alone, apart from the others
As much as I’ve done for the people I know
No thought of myself getting anything in return
The benefit of others was my only cause
Now for the benefit of myself and only those I love

I have been living on the verge of collapse
Carrying the weight of my world
Bend till I break on the verge of collapse
Carrying the weight of the world…

Wolves in sheep skin that I have let in
In the den of the devil I now see deep within
Beneath the surface I see the true face
Of the demon inside that must be erased
So hard to be truthful yet so easy to lie
So hard to tell by the look in their eyes
Time is the keeper that will set all truths free
And somewhere in time they will have to face me

I have been living on the verge of collapse
Carrying the weight of my world
Bend till I break on the verge of collapse
Carrying the weight of the world…

Sins of the past always come back to haunt me
Though I’ve forgiven anyone against me
In my heart I have changed for the better I think
But my soul I thought cleansed is still on the brink
Pray to my God for an end to this dream
More of a nightmare than I could believe
To do right, to work hard, and at the end of the day
Be at peace with myself, again in silence I pray…

I have been living on the verge of collapse
Carrying the weight of the world...

Years Gone By

Looking back on fading photographs
Of years gone by
Since those days the world has changed
But not for you and I 
The years that you have given me
Such precious moments shared
And never have you lost the love for me
You once declared 
The house that we have made our own
The fires we walked through
Through ups and downs, through tears and fears
Our love remained so true
The road was never easy
But never did we stray
The mountains and the hills that we have climbed
To find our way
The lonely days and nights I stood by you
When you were gone
We sacrificed, believed in love
And always we stood strong
But if I ever lost your love
My world would cease to be
I need you by my side
For without you, there’d be no me...

Quit My Job, Smashed My Car

Quit my job, smashed my car
My back does throb, need to learn guitar

So I can make, a silly song
And I can sing, it all day long
About how, my God is strong
So that even now, nothing’s wrong

Even though, I quit my job
smashed my car, my back does throb

Life is hard, but I’ve got God
So I won’t let any thought
Any worry or fear
Convince me you’re not near

Even when, I quit my job,
Smashed my car, my back does throb
Life is hard, but I won’t sob
I need to learn guitar

Perfect disease

Don’t you know we have so many questions
And we all are looking for answers
We asked you to show us the way
But you wouldn’t show us the truth

You’re such a liar
Such a perfect disease
With every word that you speak
Don’t you know that we’re all bound
 to be infected by you
So get away from me

You show us what you want us to see
And you make the truth what you want it be
Hidden in every intention
Is your selfish ambition 

You’re such a liar 
Such a perfect disease 
With every word that you speak
Don’t you know that we’re all bound 
to be infected by you
So get away from me

You judge what you do not know
You teach others to hate
You point out everyone’s sin
While you are the biggest one at fault

You’re such a liar
Such a perfect disease
With every word that you speak
Don’t you know that we’re all bound 
To be infected by you
So get away from me

Don’t you know we have so many questions
And we all are looking for answers
We asked you to show us the way
But you wouldn’t show us the truth

DONE



                             The Apple PASTURE

Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture.
Were once was and all well meet.
A pure and dear site.
Where silver reflection cover the still waters that holds the golden
grains of martilty and the grazing souls lie young amounce no stars.
Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture
Were wins smells of melon and the trees whisper spring corals in the mellow dark and best of light and time creeps into no tomorrow.

The Poetic Blues

I think I self-sabotage unknowingly 
because of fear
So my message goes unheard because I’m afraid to let the people hear
And end up drowning in the poetic blues
doubting my ability to write about the truth;

I dug deeper and deeper into myself trying to write a poem good enough to be free of judgment
Then I stepped out on faith and suddenly I was triumphant 
and my writing grew 
and I was loving it
I had finally passed the fear of speaking and caring about who the fu*c! was judging it

As I wait to be inspired for the next poem, 
I sit and think alone and drown in my sorrows
Listening to jazz, blues and a.m. radio
trying to find an excuse not to perform at the SLAM 
because again I can’t think of a damn thing to write…..
Drowning in poetic blues
Will this be the one that will be thrown away and never be used 

Or will this be the one that transcends the others  
and finally prove that poetry is blues and blues is poetry and hip hop and jazz and r&b, 
Poetry is music and the words dance around in my soul 
and I am free once they become spoken 
In the meantime the paper is where the words will rest 
until the silence is broken

Drowning in the sea of proper delivery 
My voice, my stance, my intensity
How will others interpret the words that I’ve chosen so diligently?
I wrap my soul around the possibility that none of the words I choose – 
will keep me from becoming deluged and trapped by the poetic blues

Somehow my heart refuses to accept that I don’t deserve to have my words heard 
and it takes over this whole process
No more time for shrinking and feeling less
I was born to  make my words manifest light
I am a gorgeous medium to the truth yeah that's right
I was sent here to give you a piece of good news
Remember that God is with you when you get
The poetic blues

Your Presence

Your presence I feel oh so near, it help me to relieve 
some of my fears of all my everyday cares, I feel your
presence eveywhere.  Whenever I walk down the street,
I can feel the patter of your feet.  I can feel you walking
next to me telling tales of what I mean to you and thinking
about all the things we used to do.

Your presence is so close, it's as if I can smell your fragrance
right under my nose.  I am thinking of your smiling face all
next to mines, telling me how you will love me until the
end of time.  Your presence is oh so strong and as I travel
throughout this day it lingers on.  When I decide to stop and
dine, it's as though I feel your hand right next to mines.  

When I sat down to eat, I can see your eyes staring into
mines, and you sitting there sipping on some wine.
Your presence means so much to me and this is the
way I want it to always be, me feeling you and you
feeling me until forever and eternity.

Dream on

 DREAM ON 
 
I dream on, from my dome to my chest
to my toes and to the tips of my palms. 
We dream on, in the land of the free,  
but where freedom comes at a cost and 
sacrifice for others the achieve their dream. 
  
I dream on, flying over an icy mountain top,  
To the sweat taste of lemon drops,  
To the cool relief of mist burning over a  
desert black top as I brain storm lessening 
to heart beat of my favorite song.
  
We dream on, from the top of 
lonely tropical island hill top  
to the sit and the smell of a breath
taking Forrest and to a falling
sun afflicting a shining sea
that is the best part of the day 
I rather spend ending enjoying with a beautiful
woman... the sit and the breeze.

Song for Baptism

Into the water now I go to die
That I may live again
Live now O Christ for me, and no more I
Glory, I am born again

To your Holy Spirit I yield my life
Yield it again for me
By grace alone I win in all my strife
Thanks, O Lord you ransomed me

Under the water I take your image now
Day by day led by you
Your sweet covenant and law becomes my vow
Pray for me, Lord, keep me true.

By faith alone my flesh shall die in grace
O Christ, now cover me
Make me a witness in thy full embrace
Hosannah, you ransomed me.

The logic of a fool

Blame your mistakes on anything you can
Mask the fact your just the appetamy of a man
Never willing to turn around
Never wanting to hear a sound

Even though you’re well aware
This is going nowhere
The way out is just too far
Because of the foolishness of who you are

You’re on the top of the world
The Top of the World
No one’s going to get you down
Because you’re the one with this royal crown
But deep inside the fool still lies
Soon you’ll be the last one who cries

Looking in the eyes of perfection
Is forcing you to doubt this perception
Trying to shut your eyes and throw the key
Doing anything you can to run and flee


So just
Shut
Shut your eyes
Just Run
Run away
It must be better than giving in
Just Lie
Lie to yourself
Blame it on anyone
On Anyone
Blame it on anyone else
Lie to yourself
Lie to yourself
You’re not fooling anyone anymore
So go ahead and LIE

Blame your mistakes on anything you can
Mask the fact you’re just the appetamy of a man
Never willing to turn around
Never wanting to hear a sound

Even though you’re well aware
This is going nowhere
The way out is just too far
Because of the foolishness of who you are 

So just
Shut
Shut your eyes
Just Run
Run away
It must be better than giving in
Just Lie
Lie to yourself
Blame it on anyone
On Anyone
Blame it on anyone else
Lie to yourself
Lie to yourself
You’re not fooling anyone anymore
So go ahead and LIE

Realm of Reality

Introduction: Life is a mystery with many ups and downs throughout the journey. The
journey filled with thoughts of tranquility and turmoil. But the perfect sensation is the
time when you get to feel closer to your Almighty, the one who understands you the best,
your closest friend, your hope and light, your solution to every problem, The mystery you
came to life to solve and to believe in.
Even in the happiest and the saddest moments, He is always there when you need Him.




Right now I am, thinking what to write
Holding my pen, it’s almost midnight,
I’m truly out of words, to express my whole life,
It’s so absurd, cut all pain through a knife
And I wish I could feel, Your presence in my soul
I know that You know, what I am going through
And I’m not sure I believe, unless I really feel
But I know when You’re not there, so I pray to feel You near

Now I can see, what this life is about
Now I do know, I’m too lost without,
Diamond in the rough, that’s what I was
But now I’m reborn by the shower of Your bliss
I’d die to satisfy, I’d do everything I can,
No matter how tough, after all I’m a man
I won’t fall apart, You’re always in my heart
I’d swim oceans and more, only to be Your friend

This undying grace of Your creation,
Time and space, more than perfection
You’ve opened my eyes and showed me the truth
You’ve blessed peace to my soul; I know what’s my role
I see two key coins, one black and one white
And all I have to join, the one with your light
Life is as it is, we make it our own
Hard or easy, full or alone

Everything grows, as they all involve
With the rose you put down, to show us what’s love
I wake up early, to see Your beauty,
Throughout the morning sun, I feel complete and done,
I drive all the way and see my problems solved,
By Your love from above, I stand still so firm
Everything I do, everywhere I go,
Every moment I breathe, I remind myself of You…my Almighty.

The Force

The Force flows all around.
The Force goes through this sound.

I feel it at night.
I feel it at first light.
It holds me like 
a lover I desire.

The Force flows all around.
The Force goes through this sound.

I see it and sigh.
I know it never dies.
It holds me like 
a brother of fire.

In My Dreams

In my dreams

I’m still in my dreams
Walking along the streams
The way looks so dangerous
Its stories were so famous
But I’m still in my dreams

I don’t know where I’m going
Just know going to be ruined
I have not control on my mind
Summer is not so fine
But I’m still in my dreams

I saw a shadow looks terrible
Structure is not so visible
I make my steps towards shadow
My feet going to be swallow
But I’m still in my dreams



Weather becomes cool
Shadow is making me fool
I am a little afraid
I think my life has been paid
But I’m still in my dreams

I see a dead body
Where was nobody
This I’m not ready to face
I have to get out of this place
But I’m still in my dreams

While you criticize me

I ask myself 
Why must I follow the blind
Are these lies just fogging their mind
This path of devastation
That’s filled with lies of infestation
Is just right in front of you
This is just too sick to be true
But even if I try to turn away
Nothing will be good enough that I say
Everyone will just push me back
I need to build up the courage that I lack
To say that this is insanity 


You think your right
And that your following the light
While you criticize me
You’re innocence is all that you see
But every step you take is leading you away
From the Truth!
This frustration is killing me
While you criticize me!


Is it too much to ask
Or is it too big a task
To just let me be
All your faults I can now see
Why can’t I just be myself today!
These lies that your saying
Are clearly just fading
They are just too far from the truth
I need to get out of your loop
I don’t mind being different
If it takes me away from YOU!


You think your right
And that your following the light
While you criticize me
You’re innocence is all that you see
But every step you take is leading you away
From the Truth!
This frustration is killing me
While you criticize me!


You wish I would synchronize to you
Everyone else will just do as you do
So all you can do is sigh
Because I won’t shrink up and DIE!

 
Watching everyone follow you is just sick
It’s just like a blind man trusting his stick
Now they are heading to their doom
While I’m safe in my room!



You think your right
And that your following the light
While you criticize me
You’re innocence is all that you see
But every step you take is leading you away
From the Truth!
This frustration is killing me
While you criticize me!

I’m free of your bondage
No more insanity
I’ve escaped this nightmare
Of living in your shadows
Now I have found the Truth!
Because I got away from YOU!


Criticize me
It doesn’t matter what you say
Criticize me
I’m not following your ways
Criticize me
I’m different in every single way
Criticize me
Because I’ve found the truth!


You think you’re right
And that you’re following the light
While you criticize me
Your innocence is all that you see
But every step you take is leading you away
From the Truth!
This frustration is killing me
While you criticize me
While you criticize me
While you criticize me
While 
You 
Criticize
You Criticize 
Criticize Me!

Starry Dreamy Night

I found myself sweating last night
From a dream I shared with you in perfect sight, 
The place is dark, a corner without a light
You pulled me agressively, I felt uptight! 

I heard your urging breath, so warm, so sweet
Planted owning kisses on my nape indiscreet, 
As you own me wildly, felt you were in
I can feel the rushing pumps you made in between! 

Oh, but at the wanting of this dream's delay
Woke up sweating; grabbed my robe; got up from where I lay, 
Cold water didn't help cease the burning chill
This starry dreamy night, I feel that sizzling dream still.

Starry, starry night, as I look outside
Saw the vast sky and I felt chill inside, 
Wrapped myself and whispered, "Where are you tonight?"
Hear my starry dream, hold me forever tight...

And I whispered as I saw the falling of the shooting star
Crossing my fingers and stared from where it will fall afar: 
"I wish I may I wish I might, 
Have my wish I wish tonight!"

The Wishful Love Song

There was the night that I lost my love
Then I blamed it all on me
I broke into tears
It’s felt like I’ve been lost for years

This is a wishful love song
But I feel lonely all night long
This is a wishful love song
And I’ll sing this all night long

I wish so much 
That I could give a girl my heart
I want to remember what it feels like
To give a girl my all

This is a wishful love song
But I feel lonely all night long
This is a wishful love song
And I’ll sing this all night long

Sometimes I wonder what I did wrong
And why I’m not that strong
I’m asking God what I can do
To find a girl that will make me new

This is a wishful love song
But I feel lonely all night long
This is a wishful love song
And I’ll sing this all night long

I know I can’t fall too fast
And have another broken aftermath 
But I want to fall in love
And show her God above

This is a wishful love song
But I feel lonely all night long
This is a wishful love song
And I’ll sing this all night long

I am...

I am a poet writing of my pain
I am a person living a life of shame
I am your daughter, hiding my depression
I am your sister, striving to make a great impression
I am your friend acting like I'm fine
I am a dreamer, wishing this life, wasn't mine
I am a girl who struggles with suicide
I am a teenager, pushing her tears aside

The Unhappy Moth

She chose a red scarf. The most red 
of them all.
Of a dark red, a sweet and thick red color,
just as wine.

She carved from the red scarf
from the middle
to the size of a Martini glass.

Then she carved one more glass,
and she kept carving 
till she fell asleep.

Yesterday
she saw her Beloved Moth 
flirting with a Younger Moth, 
carving together from a sweater
while she was getting busy,
carving in the shelves.

The Unhappy Moth drank lots of wine
woolen wine, 
last night.
She drank lots, too much
for a Moth.
The Unhappy Moth got drunk
and fell asleep
on the red scarf,
unhidden
with a heart filled with peace.

She was not afraid no more. 
Now she could be seen easily,
laying on the scarf
and easily crushed.

The Unhappy Moth was not 
afraid of death no more,
at least, now she knew 
how wonderful the red scarfs are
and that they taste
like red wine.

Journey

After being shattered,
 torn apart inside,
 a hole was carved out of me
 and something in me died.
 
Our dreams, desires and hopes,
 so young and plentiful,
 all too quickly melted away,
 both of us feeling dismal. 

The time that then came after;
 so dark, unhopeful and bleak.
 The Heart could see no light,
 the body soon became weak.
 
A living, moving corpse,
 an empty, lonely shell.
 The Soul would drift, unheard from,
 locked in its gloomy shell.
 
But life is so persistent,
 and always will pull through.
 Subtle, gentle rays of light
 will once again shine true.
 
The pieces of Self are gone,
 and an emptiness remains,
 Yet the dark thoughts drip away,
 the Soul no longer in chains.
 
So Self must be reborn,
 clay in a potter's hands.
 Piece by piece, the hole is filled,
 done so with multiple strands.
 
Recreated little wonder,
 dance with Joy once more.
 Let your dreams regain their wings,
 and see what He has in store.

Hate

Hate, is a ponderous thing to carry,
Its fire too passionate to be ignored.
Its consequence on one's heart is scary,
It devastates good things there stored.

Venomous thoughts must be curtailed,
Swept into amnesia from their start.
If permitted to endure, in life we've failed,
For hate will lay waste a loving heart.

Bestow patience, Lord, as we wait,
Examining all other points of view.
In life, no space, to accommodate hate,
And recognize that its because of you.

Keep Striving

V.1 Unlike most she sits in the sun,
and waits for the day when she's finally done, she's just begun,
so alone in the sun she'll sit, 
wondering what she did, and why no one will forgive

It's a mystery, Sherlock Holmes, could never solve,
all the clues in a ball, with a broken axis that won't revolve
A puzzle with pieces that don't fit, so it's never solved, 
And it slowly evolves, like a phone without a number to call.

She's internally faded, so she sits in her zone, zen mode,
where everything seems to be moving slow-mo,
It's hard to know, fact from fiction, real to fake,
so alone she's gonna sit, while she numbers her ending days,

C. As time goes by the worlds retreats, 
we fall down, and pick ourselves up to the beat,
but in the end, you can only choose defeat,
so deny and keep on striving, until you've walked every street.

V.2 He's alone in his space, as he's waiting out the war,
waiting for a sign, an omen, or maybe more
His skins torn, scars are already starting to form,
Stitches keep him together while he sits alone with the Lord
The world's a storm, thunder intimidates and lightning performs,
with his pride up on the shelf, another person is born

His consciousness fades, and his mind can no longer operate,
blacked out, his reactions can barely cooperate
He lost faith, long gone, the road never ends,
bullets are flying but silence is finally sinking in,

But he won't, be taken in, he refuses and he forgives,
he stands up and shoots back, until he finally wins.

C.

V.3 I sit alone in this room, pen in hand,
trying to put thoughts to paper, but the thoughts got up and ran,
What can I do? But sit alone, and think these thoughts
Do I really think I have supporters, I think not

But a gotta pen and a mind, that could be stronger than any nine,
Anybody that wants to step to me, I beat 'em with rhymes
My composure could take an entire army at one time,
and to anybody with a light, I'm the true definition of 'shine'

So don't step to me, you're to low,
the curtains are closed, the show's over go home
I have nothing to prove, cause you already know,
there's nothing you can do to stop me, until you've created a clone

Someone's Watching

Throughout my day one watches
Over every move I make.
That same someone is guiding
Each earthly step I take.

Once, through faith, I asked this man
To clean and make me whole.
I now know this man to be
The savior of my soul.

This man whose name is Jesus Christ
Is where my future lies.
I've put my faith and trust in him
There has been no disguise.

From within his written word I find
He'd have me either hot or cold
He desires no in between
Nor places difference in young and old.

So each day I must do those things
That to me, God has made known.
For in His judgement I'll someday stand
And reap just what I've sown.

In your memory

Thank you for the beautiful memory
you left on my mind
you are not dead
 but you are not here,

to me you are gone,
cos i cant feel you the way i used to,
everything you used to do are left untouched
the space you ocupied is empty,

our yesterday is fading away like the rainbow
so beautiful but so short,
how can i forget the endless yesterday?
when you are here with me.


in loving memory of my sister (you are not an angel but you did what an angel can do,you fly to heaven.)

Understanding Of The End

The time is upon us, yea it is at hand, Things are not what they seem
Im not sure that i really understand
What do you want from me, Is it me?
What do i do, Do I need to take your hand?
Who are these adversaries and What is their plans?,
Am I an instrument, for the ultimate end
Or is it another lesson to be learned, That alone, I can not stand.
What do my dreams mean, are they signs from you?
Are they prophecy, are they the glue
to the pieces of my life, that lead me to you?

My Guardian Dear

When I was young I thought I knew 
How to talk and speak with you 
But time has put a wedge between
My angel, conscience, inner being.
I spoke to you , I spoke to you

The one who told me right from wrong,
Comforted me all day long. 
Helped me choose which way to go,
When undecided, I didn't know.
I spoke to you. I spoke to you.

Some call you Gabriel, 
My Guardian Angel, I did tell,
My hopes,my fears,my dreams to be,
Untold to others was free with thee.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Comfortable, believing that you were there,
To guide me through every prayer.
You had a name I knew it then,
I said it time and time again.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you 

I was a child of seven or eight,
I knew when called I need not wait
For you my angel to appear 
To clear my conscience and my fear
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

The older I grew, less time was spent
Talking to you,trying to vent
Friends became closer to me,
I shared more with them and left you be
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

Now as I'm in the prime of life
Mother to my son, no longer a wife,
I wonder late at night if you
Will answer my questions like you used to do
I spoke to you, I spoke to you

Afraid to test, afraid to fail,
Wanting and hoping you did not bail 
Praying that your still at my side
To light, to guard,to rule and guide. 
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My faith has told me you are here.
Watching me and always near.
My pride, my walls have come down
Last night,I spoke with no one around.
I spoke to you, I spoke to you.

My Guardian Angel you were there
You listened and helped with every prayer,
My hopeless feelings lonely, just me
Ended last night when you returned to me
I spoke to you, I spoke to you
I"ll speak to you, yes speak with you.

In My Life - There is a Rainbow after a Rainstorm

I’d do anything to erase your departure, leaving a troubled trace in my mind – face your fretful fate – there’s a rainbow after a rainstorm in the afterlife! I can’t wait till that nirvana-like Kingdom comes! No need to hesitate...but we do have to fait No need to be in anguish and let’s move forward – let’s open that gate to endless possibilities and seek a fresh state of mind – we’re on a clean slate and you and I can share our fantastic fate – follow me, mate! *chorus* I’m never bold & ambitious enough to say that you saved me from the death’s snare But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal the truth of what I feel for you deep inside In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave I was caved in by the cravings of my heart The darkness once ripped me apart But, you repaired me and I recovered pretty fast So, please listen up! I must tell you about my good and bad past Fear doesn’t exist here Get a grip on the rope of hope All anxieties are gone We dream on like daydreamers, awaiting another great, delight-illuminated dawn I’ll love you until my life is no more I’ll love you, even if you have strayed into the darkness I love you from the bottom of the ocean to the heavens above I’ll love you – I won’t get over you and you’re my love at first sight – you were and still are a dazzling, surreal sight – you kiss me and I’m overwhelmed with passionate bliss I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with me I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse Before I met you…of course I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone Before I met you, I was on my own V.12: *ending* Love has won my heart after you said your apologies to me for leaving me behind and I apologized to you about being unfaithful to you Affection grows in your heart – Love becomes serpentine in your keen, passion-whelmed heart from the start – talk that talk of optimistic pleasure… it’s your stunning work of art – you’re a priceless art! Our hearts were meant to be together in unity – They weren’t meant to bleed in tainted misery I believe you and I found Our happy ending above the ground Love, after all the tribulations and grieving processes we’ve been through, Mends all hearts and covers all sins and we’re being strengthened by hope – we’ve been accepted and included in His crew He whispers in our ears: “There’s a Rainbow after a Rainstorm…keep that in mind, my beloved children…” We take wing in the aqua-blue sky – he unleashed us from the lion’s den – love will not break my heart again!

Dance of the Maras

Have a look around
before you touch the ground
the things that you see
are the pleasures that can be.

Why waste your life for others
when all they want to do is smother
take it from me

Spritual Gangster

You don’t want to miss this
But don’t be confused this aint Christmas
You’ve gotta get real my brotha and kiss this
I’m a spiritual criminal with lipstick

If you’re lucky you just might make my hit list
Coz I’m a murderer killing *****es ego’s with fake riffs
If you’re a moral criminal and do the minimal you can’t hit this
We must stand together my brother to beat this

Pleasure - pain, generosity - blame, loss - gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 

I’ll mind punch you in the heart and give you a soul diss
Aint no big brotha gonna hold me and frisk this
You’re not lost or all alone coz my arrows fire straight and can’t miss
Things aint changed and love can still fix this

Pleasure pain, Generosity blame, loss gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 
Love -love- love is all you need

Reflections: Intellectualism

To Dine, To Die;
Conversations spiral
While thunderous eyes
Grasp concepts to recycle.

Constant debt crisis
A political paradox
Grating social devices
Over the sorting of socks.

Pseudo-analysis
An endless groan
Argumental paralysis
The debate grants no throne.

Existentialism
Over a roast
Potatoes won't listen
To who talks the most.

"That point is so interesting"
The floor is open for chat
"What is real?" not a thing
"Meow" adds the cat.

Painful Blessings

God's child and only his.
He's been teaching me lessons since..
before my teenage years. 
I learn things quickly, a genius...maybe.
He has yet to expose his gift to me.
He has yet to begin revealing my destiny.
So I wait...wait for my world to shake.
Wait for my heart to ache. 
With every storm comes sunshine. 
An inner glow given from the divine. 
A new found sense of control. 
Thank you for allowing me to learn lessons.
That's why I call them painful blessings.

Reach for the sky

Verse 1:
Am I dreaming
Why can’t I explain this feeling
Doesn’t anyone see
This isn’t who I’m supposed to be

Chorus:
Reach for the Sky!
And maybe someday you’ll fly
Reach for the Sky!
And don’t let them ask you why
Chase for you’re dreams!
Find out what this really means
Maybe everything isn’t what it seems!

Verse 2:
Such fear of losing
Disappointment always haunting
Sometimes this makes me wonder
Are these fears just taking me under
I need to find an escape 
Before everything’s too late 

Chorus
Reach for the Sky!
And maybe someday you’ll fly
Reach for the Sky!
And don’t let them ask you why
Chase for you’re dreams!
Find out what this really means
Maybe everything isn’t what it seems!


Verse 3:	
This is no longer amusing
I’m finished with losing
I need to finally start my life
No longer living under your strife
I’m building up the courage that I lack
To not let anyone hold me back

Chorus
Reach for the Sky!
And maybe someday you’ll fly
Reach for the Sky!
And don’t let them ask you why
Chase for your dreams!
Find out what this really means
Maybe everything isn’t what it seems!

Hallelujah

That angelic voice, I heard her 
sing,
All of heaven awoke, to its 
corridors ring,
But you'd rather listen to a 
saddening tone, would you?
She had been told, to sing so 
low,
Begin with E3, don't cross G4,
Our nervous dame began to 
sing Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

She had been taught how must 
she cry,
Winnow the grain, cook the rye,
You thought she couldn't make 
you weep, didn't you?
She took in some air, then 
broke away,
From the sired stranglers of 
decay,
And from her lips she sang the 
Hallelujah,


Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Tell her when is the victory 
knell,
When ferocious beasts will be 
put to rest,
But you'd rather see her suffer 
now, wouldn't you?
The eternal search for a change 
of heart,
The lifelong request to play your 
part,
Listen to her prayer, the 
Hallelujah,


Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

She only wants the simplest 
glance,
From the oceans wave, the 
mountains dance,
Do you want to watch her fade 
away, do you?
She will fly, swim as well,
Till she breaks her tender leg,
Till she will forget how to sing 
hallelujah.


Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah.

Many Questions, One Answer

The bills, the pain, the drama, the rain
The storm grows larger and floods your brain 
With thoughts that begin to drive you insane
 Like, if I trust God will it all go away?
What am I missing? Empathy? Faith?
What will happen if I stay on this pace?
Am I one of those people that God can replace?
If I don’t change now is it hell I face?
Could we all be afraid of meeting our fate?
All these years trying to find someone to relate..
Is it true you can fall victim of a time and a place?
If I pray hard enough can I erase [pause]
The anger, the envy, resentment and hate ?
or at 25 years old could I be too late?
To try and change my life to get a new slate
And chills cover my arms and my heart begins to race
All of a sudden I can’t hear any rain
Laughter replaces the fear that remained 
and God lets us know it will all be ok
Forgive those around you and thank God for each day
Think with your heart and in Gods you will stay.


Details | Lyric | |

UNFOLD

The pain of change as it unfolds
Is oft a tale that stays untold
What is seen is a whole creature
not deep holes in the feature
nor concrete soles that makes his feet hurt

It all begins with a soft kiss
He is walking with a false bliss
Only following in paw prints
But the nature of mom's lips
Is to rob him of all innocence

Trapped in warm spindles of fear
A wrapped life form kindles in here
Four years bound to shingles of moss
Time to leave this life of sloths
Break free like that of a moth
and Rise again like Christ on the cross

Screams of Hell

You can’t wait
To bury your sins
In your grave
But little do you know
Hell is screaming your name

You cry to heaven above
But you can’t hide
That you lied to the one you love

So now hell is breaking open
Under your feet
And I hope you know
That you are going to fall

The mistakes are piling up in front of you
Inside you know there’s nothing you can do
So you scream to the heavens
While hell is dragging you down

Forever you’re gonna burn with your sins
And there’s no one that’s gonna hear you now
No matter how much you pray
Just know that God won’t hear things you have to say

You can’t wait
To bury your sins
In your grave
But little do you know
Hell is screaming your name

Pull the trigger

Every struggle in my path 
And the horrible aftermath
 How much longer can I stay true
 I can't hep feel like im loosing you 
Temptation is everywhere I face
 I dont know how much more I can take 
sometimes it'd be easier if they pulled the trigger 
because I cant stand how the guilt just gets bigger 
So just pull the trigger 
the sin is so much greater
 it's so much easier to die than live with faith
 I just dont know how much more I can take
 These outcomes are so curropted
 sin has always interrupted
 it feels like my life has come to nothing
 always falling for something 
Wishing to go back to the good old days
 When I was following God's ways
 but sin has taken every part of me 
forgetting the innocence I used to see
 So just pull the trigger
 the sin is so much greater
 it's so much easier to die than live with faith
 I just don't know how much more I can take
 Thankfully God has intersected 
My sins he has corrected
 I deserve none of this
 but he welcomes me with open arms and a kiss
 He gives me the strength to make it through
 With Jesus I am made new

Take my hand

Everything in the back of my mind
And in the front of yours
Leaving us with nothing left
Holding on to each other tight
Never to let go
It’s just us and God tonight

Chorus:
What we thought was home
Was just destroyed right underneath our eyes 
tonight
Tonight
So Take My hand
And lets run away
To a place where we
Thought we’d never see

Verse 2:
Friends leaving us behind
Loosing what we held so dear
Our beliefs are all we can hold on to
Because it is the dark that captures our fear


Chorus:
What we thought was home
Was just destroyed right underneath our eyes
 tonight
Tonight
So Take My hand
And lets run away
To a place where we
Thought we’d never see

Verse 3:
Holding you tight 
In the midst of ruins
Looking for the light
Giving you all I have
Because this could be our last night
So hold me tight
And let’s fly away

Chorus:
What we thought was home
Was just destroyed right underneath our eyes 
tonight
Tonight
So Take My hand
And lets run away
To a place where we
Thought we’d never see

Armageddon Pt 1

It's bout to get worse
It was written in the verse
The truth hurts
ARMAGEDDON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

When the time comes
No one's gonna hold up a sign
saying it's time to "get right"
It's gone come like a thief in the night!
Blowin' up and wreckin ish!
The war you want is the war you gone get
It was written before our time
We keep looking at the signs
manifest before our very eyes
constantly denying our right
to be one of the meek ones of our time
ARMAGEDDEON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

We're at the end of what used to be existence
Every super power will answer to a higher power 
so pray repentence
The time is closer than any distance
From Washington to Obama
No one will escape the wrath!
Hope you choose the right path!
Narrow is the gate of the righteous tracks
that are imprented on the mind of the omnipotent one
Will you be spared life on earth with the meek ones
and accurately take in knowledge of his son?
OR will you perish in the dust
never to be awakened again?
No consciousness of sin
ARMAGEDDON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED!

It's in the verses
Read it, see it, live it, rehearse it
You see the times changing
You see the minds fading
You see the world and how messed up it is
You see that nigga satan and his curses!
I pray to have a chance to live a beautiful paradise on earth like it say in the verses!
ARMAGEDDON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN WARNED

Treasures of Life

The thread of life we're not given
To understand,
It"s like trying to catch a moonbeam
In your hand.
For life's a gift that all too soon
Will disappear,
Leaving us to face that everlasting 
New frontier.
The scales of  justice won't render
What we'll ask,
But mercy will be most sought
For vitality"s task.
Your final assessment will be
Determined by sin,
Not how generous or scant
Years have been.
Don't delve unduly on the future
For days go fast,
Only treasures laying up in Heaven
Will surely last.

Hope Is My Anchor - Song

Hope Is My Anchor [Song]

“19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, “ Heb 6:19 NKJV

Hope is my anchor; It’s the anchor of my soul.
So sure and steadfast, It cannot shift or roll.
With the mindset of perseverance, and such hope in my heart,
I will not be anxious, to the end from the start.

Chorus
Hope is my anchor, And I place my hope in Him.
He’ll not fail to guide me, Send His Holy Spirit within.
Hope is my anchor, No waves can wash me ashore,
Because of my loving Savior, the One I do adore.

Hope is my anchor, and without it I perish.
I hope for what I cannot see, my good Lord to admonish.
I need no double-mindedness, nor to be unstable in my ways.
I just believe in my Father’s power, and daily give Him praise.

Hope is my anchor, and my rudder too.
When I lift the anchor, I’ll said to heights with you.
I need you my Captain, steering at the helm.
You will show me the passage, lift me to higher realms.

The Fear

The Aphotic rays reach higher
And shame, shade reigns over all
Lacuna, Apathy is all I feel as I fall into the ashed grave
I'm living, the slowest way to die
Elysia, rapture where are you now

What will I do when the flame is extinguished 
What will I do when I drown in ash
What will I do when they sing my name in funeral dirges 
How can this be all, one short organic vitality
Scares to die, but afraid of a new day

Scared to die, but so afraid of a new day
Will I Ressructe to Paradise, burn in Hell, or lay in Sheol
Is this a there is, one feather, to the dirge
My life so long - my suffering grows
Scared to die, but so afraid of a new day

In all of the ashes, a flame begins
Once again, here I am
Living, the slowest way to die

The Forgotten Lover

I think back to the days where
We held each other tight
Never wanting the night to go anywhere but here
Buts those days slipped by
They seem so far away
Oh how things changed
Between you and I

Now I’m just the guy you knew
Never thought of how we flew
And what you think you want is
So much more than a secret kiss goodnight

Now you’re fallin for the bad boy
And you’ve pushed me to the side
You’re lost in this wonder
Lookin in his eyes

Lookin at the way you love
Feels like its from God above
And I’m just the guy who
Lost his way from you

Sabbath Morning Rap sequence 1

Learn not too late to halt the hate,
Bound to be ground in the dust of disgust
We're pierced and fierce, fulla rings and things
We're blued and tatooed and God is booed.

Crude dudes are misconstrued
with actions vulgar,vile and lewd.
We're found down ground in sound,
totally tatooed in terrible taste,
in a mindless race for the loudest base.

Hate to dis your myth but God exists,
'Tis a truth deduced by the less obtuse,
You understand He did become man
For His love of us all because of the fall.

He suffered and died being crucified,
He pulled His people from the pains of hell
and rose from the dead He's alive and well,
I tell you no lie He's got no rival,
It's right there written in the holy Bible.

He arose to heaven so to send the Spirit
to His brothers and sisters who wished to hear it,
He said I leave you my Love I leave you my all
but you gotta say yes to heed my call.

Don't follow the world that ain't the place,
You want to be with Me when you finish this race,
Orphans you're not  you have been taught,
I will help you find Me if I'm sought.
                  
                       Amen

For You And Me

It  was  for you and me ,
That Jesus left His throne,
Bore the scourge and agony,
Shivered His flesh and bone,

It was for you and me,
He took the awry tour,
Towards the dreaded Calvary,
Summed His tortured  hours,

It was for you and me,
That Jesus bore the cross,
Paid the greatest penalty,
That death supposed be ours,

It was for you and me,
He wailed the gloomiest cry,
It was for you and me,
Jesus was nailed to die,

Oh, that you and I may see,
Our wickedness beyond measure,
Jesus to set us free,
In our stead bore the torture,

His love mysterious great,
Knocks  the door of all men's heart,
His mighty power recreates,
Renews our lives whole to restart,

It was for you and me,
When on the third day death sufficed,
The savior left His grave,
Victorious he arised,

He rose back to His throne,
Sitting by His Father's side,
Prepare! He's coming soon,
Today is to decide,

Stuck

I'm like a lion
Tryin to be  trained
to behave in a cage, but
I wasnt born to be tame
Full of stress and rage
 Im compressed and chained
Infected with depression
beCause I cant catch a break
Lifes taste is so tart
In pain from my scars
Stained by lame luck
Stuck behind apace car
I strive to write
But all I can type is the space bar
I'm Pervaded with doubt
About to freakout
Quick Someone bail me out
I would sniff my way out
but I got this cyst on my snout
From 6 years of this drought
Im sittin with this could of pout
Stickin to me like jam from a can
like melted candy in your hand
I'M a pantree full of Spam
 A Letter without the stamp
A debtor without a plan
Like chicken on a pan without any Pam,
Damn I'm starting to get pissed
 I got to devise a plan, before I break my fist,
Punching this brick wall, I got the spit but no ball
got the wits with no squall, like a toliet with no stall
 Slippin in a pit fall, Shiz just snow balls
I want to brawl, missed last call
My Stick shift just stalled,
This lawl has no intention at stopin at all
And I'm kicking myself in the balls
like old men walking up and down the halls
so i flop, just like a dust mop
Now i got knots in my food box
The size of king kongs rocks and
Every door has been locked
I try to soar but its all for not

Not Your Fight

Dragging, lagging down this road,
Many things I was never told,
Stumble, tumble to the ground,
Looked up and saw no one was around,
Scraped and bruised... on both knees,
Begging for this disease to seize,
One more breath before I break,
When suddenly I realize You died for my sake,

When I can’t seem to find the words to say,
To cancel out these feelings of dismay,
When all I’ve seen was equivalent to shame,
And tornados wipe right through the pain,
When water washes the frailty and dishonor,
And most thought I was just a goner,
Your whispers penetrate my night,
 Speaking out “this is not your fight”
“ I died to fill your life with might”

Holes in souls are hard to bare,
Especially when your scars are there,
Hearts that plead to overflow,
Sometimes bleed and cannot let go,
But through the madness and through the times,
There is only one name that comes to my mind,
Nails that sacrificed for our greater good,
Can relate to my deaths even if He was misunderstood,

When I can’t seem to find the words to say,
To cancel out these feelings of dismay,
When all I’ve seen was equivalent to shame,
And tornados wipe right through the pain,
When water washes the frailty and dishonor,
And most thought I was just a goner,
Your whispers penetrate my night,
Speaking out “this is not your fight”
This is not your fight,
This is not your fight.

He Will Rock You -The story of David and Goliath to the tune of Queen's We Will Rock You

Goliath was a giant tall and strong,
With him on your side it wasn’t too long,
Before the battle was done,
Your side had won,
It was well and truly over before it’d begun!

He will, he will rock you,
He will, he will rock you

David was a young boy small but brave,
Couldn’t fit in the armour the king had gave,
It wasn’t his thing,
So took up his sling,
Now listen to the Israelite army sing.

He will, he will rock you,
He will, he will rock you

Goliath was a stoned man, what a surprise,
That pebble had hit him right in the eyes,
Dave cut of his head,
The Giant was dead,
God was with the child just like he said!

He will, he will rock you,
He will, he will rock you

Remix - ME

Remix - ME (Alll of Me) We are not against each other. We are the simple things. We are life complexity. You are all of me. My life revolves around your emotional pull. My heart thumps when I feel that we are not a couple. Our life must interweave. For today, I am not the loser. Our beings must not fray. For tomorrow, we both win. Our disagreements are few. Our high and lows, we both know. We are similar in thought; however, we are quite different. Diversity this gives intimate and fulfilling. Just yesterday, you asked me do you augment my appearance. I responded and said, “You are all of me.” We are not against each other. We are the simple things. We are life complexity. You are all of me. We walk together. We share our thoughts. We are so in love. We overlook our faults. We know that we are obligated to each other needs. In all said, you are all of me! We are not against each other. We are the simple things. We are life complexity. You are all of me. _________________________| Sponsor Poet Destroyer A Contest Name any poem #16 | Enter Contest: 03/30/2014

God gave me you

Love's undeniable journey 
explores all life,touches an 
amazing earth only you and
I can share between time.


All ups n' downs come with
Fortune n' price, but together
We will shatter a mountain of
Rock.

A place we can go hide closely 
cuddled cave, against the 
Closure of your misled arms,
Wrapped tightly around a spin
Of Saturn's that ring me.

As Pluto's fire, breaks guard 
closer to the sun.....Where GOD 
GAVE ME YOU] And an UNchained 
melody to sing.

Open the Door

You see my shining face.
You speak my glorious name.
Still you stand, firmly in place.

You try to bypass me,
Forging artificial keys.
As the turtle wins the race!

I have thrown you verse after verse,
Wonder after wonder!
Still you think the universe began
From one great asunder!
You act like there is no
Beauty to behold anymore,
I'm all that you need,
I gave you the key,
So open the door!

Plug your ears when I call,
Surrounding yourself with walls,
Built upon your ignorance.

I watch while you stumble
On such slippery rubble.
You ask not, my assistance!

It is you yourself
That made this world, black and bleak.
I've created bridges,
But you're the one with feet!
You act like there is no
Beauty to behold anymore,
I'm all that you need,
I gave you the key,
So open the door!

You left my shining home,
And upon the Earth you roamed.
Now just ahead is my gate.

With great uncertainty,
You come limply before me,
Be blessed, for it's not too late!

I've died a-midst a mocking crowd
And came back from the grave.
As I gave up my heavenly abode
To show you the way!
You act like there is no
Beauty to behold anymore,
I'm all that you need,
I gave you the key,
So open the door!

Love To The Music

The music pumps the groove,
The music makes me move,
The music lights my heart,
The music bangs so hard,

The music makes me dance,
The music brings romance,
The music crowds the place,
And the music relates,

Chorus:
The music makes me wanna dance,
All night long,
The music makes me wanna dance,
And feel this song,
The music makes me wanna love you,
All night long,
(We can love)
To The Music

The music lights my soul,
The music takes control,
The music makes you love,
The music is a drug,
The rhythm of us being in love,

Chorus 2x

Through that door

Through that door

As the Sun crashed through my window
As the birds awoke the dawn
My mind made new by daybreak
It became the day reborn.
And a whisper stirred within me
From my heart arose these words
“Go through that door to the other side
Then you’ll  “hear” these blessed birds”.

And those trees did softly rustle 
In the early morning breeze.
And I became the morning 
and the breeze that moved these trees
And the whisper softly told me 
As the dawn it beckoned me
“Go through that door to the other side
Then you’ll dance just like those trees”.

Through that door, through that door
Go through that door beyond.
Just keep on moving to the other side
Let the shadows all be gone.

That door seemed so elusive
When I sought it with my mind
Then the whisper seemed to tell me
Just leave your mind behind
Then I felt the sweetest music
As the trees they shone so bright
And as I wandered through that door
I felt such sweet delight

Pride Tastes So Bittersweet

You believe nothing is real
Always looking for power to steal
But you’re looking at truth in the eye
Knowing you deserve to die

It took my whole world to fall
Before I could learn to stand tall
I had to leave my whole life behind
Before I could make you mine

You’ve always been stuck in your ways
Clinging on them till the end of your days
Holding on to them with your life
Hoping you're strong enough to fight 

When the truth conflicts with what you believe 
You do everything you possibly can to deceive 
How the hell could they say you’re wrong
This question keeps you up all night long 

It took my whole world to fall
Before I could learn to stand tall
I had to leave my whole life behind
Before I could make you mine

Hate is deep within your skin
Trying to mask up every sin
Inside you’re burning with fire
Because you know you’re the liar

Truth is knocking on the door
But you’re screaming for war
You’re fighting to play this game
While hell is screaming your name 

It took my whole world to fall
Before I could learn to stand tall
I had to leave my whole life behind
Before I could make you mine

Why do you still hold on to hate 
What will it take to bring you to faith
You cling to your crown
While hell is dragging you down

You believe nothing is real
Always looking for power to steal
But you’re looking at truth in the eye
Knowing you deserve to die

On Dying

On Dying.

I was strolling in the sunshine
It was half past afternoon
And I even heard that new born baby cry.
As I carried on, I heard birdsong
That I’d missed my whole life long
Me mind had told me I was bound to die.

But the whisper in my heart said “cool
Look at the positives, you fool”
As he tried so hard to make me understand
That One must open up ones heart  
And see the whole, not just the parts?
It could be ones demise be kind of grand.

For positives have negatives
And negatives have positives
And life may choose to dance with you
With Death in fact enhancing you.

And then those trees did sparkle now
They seemed to glow and gleam somehow
And life seemed like a candy covered dream.
And now I know that every man
Is here to learn to understand
As still I wonder just what all this means.

Make the difference

As others smile u have frowned 
As others have cried u just broke down
u have no sorrow u have no pain are the lies we all tell today
As they scream
As they fight 
As they kick and hit
As they all hate 
u hide 
When all is lost when you see no hope 
All you see is the death or your fate
You have not yet discovered what you are destined here for 
but you have no desire at all to find out you my dear are in dought of your ability to scream and shout 
You have the will You have the power shout your thoughts from the highest of towers. You were put here to make a change how can you do that when you dont believe in fate when you have no desire you are able to use your pain use your sorrow and use your anger to make a difference yet you are becoming no different then what you now hate.

life now

the life that you have now 
is the one you will cry over when you are removed from it 
it happens that many lives are taken 
away from the now and when we lived 
the can’t grow fast enough is bicycle hard to catch up to 
crispy in leaves, and, bare under the bark

Why

I look into your eyes
And your eyes meet mine
For one moment
I could see the pain inside
And I know it’s enough
To die inside

And you ask why
I was never there for you
Why I never told you
What it means 
To know the truth
Now you’re being dragged to hell

Lookin in your soul
I know what it means
To truly know pain inside
I never knew how you felt
And just how far you fell

And you ask why
I was never there for you
Why I never told you
What it means 
To know the truth
Now you’re being dragged to hell

Why the hell was I too ashamed
To show you what life means
I was so blessed 
And you felt cursed
And now I’m the one 
Who left you to the side

And you ask why
I was never there for you
Why I never told you
What it means 
To know the truth
Now you’re being dragged to hell

Chasing the Dream

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams 

Don’t you see what you do to me 
You do everything right
But I’m always stuck in this fight
Everything looks so easy from the distance
But I’m far from chasing innocence 

I always wear my heart on my sleeve
But you always give me less reasons to believe 
With you everyone loves what they see
But I’m always chasing the dream

They say time is of the essence 
But I can never see past the present 
They say don’t be held back by fear
But every scar brings back a tear

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams

I’m always haunted by my past
Seems like these blessings will never last
Inside I know that I’m not good enough for you
Inside I know it’s too good to be true

Always walking such a fine line
But never getting a sign
I long for the end to come
For a place where I truly belong 

I’m always running as fast as I can
But I’m always left in the sand
Day after day I give it my best
Yet you’re the one that’s always blessed

Don’t you see what you do to me 
You do everything right
But I’m always stuck in this fight
Everything looks so easy from the distance
But I’m far from chasing innocence

Every sigh 
Is a result of a lie
Deep inside I know I can’t do this on my own
I need to step down from my throne 
I had to learn to fall
Before I could break down these walls
I needed God to see
Life is bigger than me

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams

I always wear my heart on my sleeve
But you always give me less reasons to believe 
With you everyone loves what they see
But I’m always chasing the dream

Shooting Star

You are a shooting star.
You're light shines here from far.
A burning fire in the sky.
To dream, like a star, you fly.

To let the insults of the world pass you by.
Always keep your head held high.
As a dreamer you are strong.
To keep following the dream along.

Keep pushing forth with all your might.
Never give up your will to fight.
Find strength deep within your light.
Keep your fire burning bright.

Though there are people that doubt.
Follow your dreams, don't push them out.
Within yourself, believe in you.
When you follow your dream they will come true.

As a shooting star leaves a trail of dust.
In your dreams you must trust.
Let your dreams take you far.
For in everyone lives a shooting star.

Finding My Way

Hello darkness, my old friend Just when my heart is on the mend I realize I’ve built walls And no one listens to my calls When times get rough And friends just can’t be found Walls close in, I’ve had enough I wish I was homeward bound I wander empty streets down Past the shop displays In my own tears I drown Only in memories, my home stays So I shrug my shoulders And walk off to look for America The road ahead is filled with boulders Steeper than the walls of Attica A pocket full of mumbles, Broken promises I carry today As thunder from a storm rumbles Only with God’s help, I find my way

Trust in destiny

Trust In Destiny

Do your best then trust in destiny,
It’s the only valid thing that you can do.
Cause there ain’t no use in worrying,
It’s a fact I’m telling you.
It wears you down and makes you sad,
Or boils your blood and gets you mad
No worry’s not the proper thing to do.

You found a lump or your children get ill
Or you’re out of dosh and cannot pay your bills,
Or death has shadowed your poor life
Or you think someone may steal your wife,
Your kids are causing too much strife,
It’ll all work out when the time is rife
 It will work out I’m telling you.

So throw them, Ditch the bloody lot,
And look right now at what you have got,
For worry causes love to die and rot
It does, it does I’m telling you.

So watch the Sun come up every day,
In nature everything’s is just okay.
The Earth keeps turning steadily,
And the birds still sing in ecstasy,
And deep within your soul you’re free,
And it all depends on destiny
No matter what you try to do.

Wake up

Verse 1:
Everything is going so far down
Yet, nobody is even hearing a sound
They want to make it seem like everything’s fine
Masking the fact that their fates are intertwined

Chorus:
Wake up, Wake up
Why are you so far gone
Wake up, Wake up
You’ve been blinded for far too long
Wake up, Wake up
I can’t sit back and watch this anymore
Judgement is so close, yet you are so far gone

Verse 2:
Still a fool for the girl next door
I could’ve told you so
Now she’s left you on the floor
But you just had to go that low

Chorus
Wake up, Wake up
Why are you so far gone
Wake up, Wake up
You’ve been blinded for far too long
Wake up, Wake up
I can’t sit back and watch this anymore
Judgement is so close, yet you are so far gone


Verse 3:
You still seek for this power and greed
Not caring where it leads
Chasing such an empty need
Even though you’ll never succeed 
This is one path that will never let you free
Now despair is all you’ll ever see

Chorus
Wake up, Wake up
Why are you so far gone
Wake up, Wake up
You’ve been blinded for far too long
Wake up, Wake up
I can’t sit back and watch this anymore
Judgement is so close, yet you are so far gone



Verse 4:
Where is the love that once was
I look at the world and wonder what was the cause
This hate has created demons within us
I look above and pray
And tell God we need him to stay
Look what we’ve done

Chorus: 
Wake up, Wake up
Why are you so far gone
Wake up, Wake up
You’ve been blinded for far too long
Wake up, Wake up
I can’t sit back and watch this anymore
Judgement is so close, yet you are so far gone

Wake up!
Wake up!
Wake up! 
And Look at what we’ve done!

One Way Looking Glass

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie

It’s just another day
Another heart break
Another teenage girl
Who gets raped and killed
Why die and go to hell
When you can just experience hell on earth

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie

It’s 4 am
And the phone rings as loud as it can
It’s your best friend
He was just shot and killed
You look to the sky 
And you can’t help but to ask God why

Does God even care
Does he see what you see
With all this hurt and pain
How could this be fair

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie

But what you do not see
Through that one way looking glass
Is the tear that falls down God’s face
And the warmth of his loving embrace 

It is our sin that separates us from God
Our rebellious ways that brings our pain
Before the first sin was a perfect world
We brought this upon ourselves 

But by the grace of God and his love
He gave us the key to heaven above
Just trust in Jesus Christ till the end
And watch your brokenness mend 

You say you can’t believe in God
You say the world is too far gone
With all this corruption deep inside
You think the truth must be a lie

You're There, I See You

I close my eyes in darkness
While the world lies down to sleep
As a father and a husband
My family’s mine to keep
Protect them? I am willing
I am always there on guard
But, when I’m not and far away
I trust You are, oh Lord

The rising sun of morning
Has my family’s eyes so wide
As the motor sounds of traffic
Fills the air that floats outside
And the people that are walking
Some are jogging, some just go
Makes me see, what truly is
And all I really need to know

God, You’re there… I see you

In the blue that reigns up in the sky
On the breath of clouds that float on by
The image of the homeless man
Who still offers up his time
As he asks not for, without doing first
So I give water to quench his thirst
To the flowers that grow in the park
And the trees that children climb

God, You’re there… I see you

While coming home at evening time
Knowing my family waits for me
I smile real wide as I walk along
So all the world can see
Maybe then they’ll see just what I see
And then take it on their way
With hopes that they will share a smile
And make better someone’s day

Now the sun has set, children tucked
With a kiss I gave to fall asleep
Standing at the door I see my wife
And I feel the love she gave to keep
I thank you Lord for all I have
For always seeing my family through
Because I know I couldn’t do this alone
That’s why I put my faith in You

God, You’re there… I see you

In the blue that reigns up in the sky
On the breath of clouds that float on by
The image of the homeless man
Who still offers up his time
As he asks not for, without doing first
So I give water to quench his thirst
To the flowers that grow in the park
And the trees that children climb

God, You’re there… I see you

Taking Steps Towards Myself

I just wanna be me!

You know I can walk a mile in your shoes
But who said I ever wanted to 
You know what you want me to be
But don’t you see I just wanna be me

I’m not bitter
I’m not leaving forever
I just need to walk away
And follow my own endeavor
This is not goodbye
So when I leave
Please don’t ask me why

Mistakes must be made
So I can learn to pave my way
Scars are there forever
To show you how to be better

You know I can walk a mile in your shoes
But who said I ever wanted to 
You know what you want me to be
But don’t you see I just wanna be me

This is my way
To express myself
I’m making this my day
To rise up
And scream against the gates of hell

I know you wish I was perfect
But I promise you
I’m learning to stay true
At the end I will hold on to faith
And show you that it’s never too late

You know I can walk a mile in your shoes
But who said I ever wanted to 
You know what you want me to be
But don’t you see I just wanna be me

I’m not bitter
I’m not leaving forever
I just need to walk away
And follow my own endeavor
This is not goodbye
So when I leave
Please don’t ask me why

I just wanna be me!

To Dream Out Loud

Don't go giving up now on the Closin' of a door 
Does the Cause that you been Fightin' for not matter anymore
Should you Hide beneath the Sands or Fade away into the Clouds 
Or are you Brave enough to be the one .....to Dream out Loud

Have you Tempted Faith before and gotten Bitten for your Time
Have you walked the Hills of Calvary or with Pontius Pilate dined 
Did you gaze upon His Face as they tore away the Shroud
Or were you Brave enough to be The One. .... to Dream out Loud

Will you Bite the Hand that Feeds you will you Toil like Honest Men
Will you Mark the Passing Eons 'til He Rises yet again
Will your Soul be Scorched in Anger or your Faithful head be Bowed 
Or will you Brave the Tide and be The One to Dream out Loud

So don't go giving up now, on the closing of a door
The dreams that you've been fighting for will matter, evermore
Don't hide beneath the sands nor fade away, into the clouds
Brave the tide and be the one... to Dream Out Loud

Like a Drink Offering

So is the life of a Christian
Poured out, like sweet wine
From the wine press of trials and temptations
The stress
From the press
Produces the flow
That gives another’s life a glow.

Unforgotten

I've captured you from death's snare,
While others were unaware
No more worrying,
You are unforgotten

You are alive
Others deny it 
Well, I know...
You are unforgotten
In my memory
You are unforgotten

Wedding Gift

Love is kind, honest and true.
This poem I write, A gift from me to you.

Searching hard for love
In this uncertain world you've come
to one your certain of.

Finally you've found each other
the one whom you will love forever.

Destiny attained through all time and space,
you have found each other by Gods sweet gift of grace.

Eternal love has been granted
by our Lord
Your lives enchanted.

Today is the day
A brand new start.
Open your arms
Open your heart
for you have found
your one true counterpart.

Don't Doubt I Love You

You can doubt the sun will rise
Or that the skies are ever blue.
You can doubt an eagle flies
Or that truths are ever true.
You can doubt everything you see
Within your field of view.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

You can doubt the change of seasons
Or that stars will always shine.
You can doubt both faith and reason,
And that elements combine.
You can doubt the things I say
And the things you see me do.
But don’t you ever doubt…
Never doubt that I love you

No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt.
No, do not ever doubt I love you.

The Solution

A problem is half of a separated pair
We seek out a solution that will solve.
While the problem we face may seem unfair
Its a mere test of our human resolve.

God never lays a problem at our door
Without concealing a solution in the grass.
When desiring s problem exist no more
Tis through kneeling it usually will pass.


Problems are often God's way of challenging me
to acknowledge Him.

The Last Leaf

Lord, I would find no delight in being,
That last leaf left on the family bough.
Observing you, the father of all time,
Extracting other hands from their plow.

For I've long experienced the heat of day,
After squinting at your sun's early rise.
I've seen the horizon swallow it, knowing,
That at my sun's terminal set, awaits a prize.

Fallen snow will remind of me/ it is snowing ... 
Slowly as in the dream/ 
Boy word-beads/ with signs on his spine/ 
He kisses fine/ 
Your eyelids /

And it snows ... It snows /so slow/
It does/ and you're thinking of me/ 
'Coz it's warm/ it's better to stay in warmth/ 
Waiting for summer dim/ 
It is snowing/ slowly like in the dream/ 
Flakes/ go round/ playing the music theme/ 
You've been looking for rescue/ 
You searched in wine/ 
But it's in me/ 
all the rescues are mine/ 
It is snowing/ the snow is fluffy and white/ 
If you see darkness/ I'm deaf and blind/ 
there's the cast of time/ on the arm/ 
But I discern the light/ 
Dreams/ upon your eyelids tips/ 
Prepare you for winter drowse/ 
And it snows/ 

Fallen snow/ will remind of spring /
it will crumble and crackle in vain/ 
It will snow / fluffy /white/ and slow/ 
And you'll become whole/

The person benath.

There is a boy inside and under he lies, A certain person and a certain face, a wouderd grin 
across this place, He lies and he fries in the midst of the dark, He try's he try's but no light to 
shut out this mark. Whoever we think he is, he takes into pain, and silent at night cry's in 
vain. For hes lost and lonely and needs a freind, But its our lazy selves that wont allow to 
offend, Who he is and what he does, Countless minutes were strapping the cause. Of what 
this kid is and what he will say, Minutes and hours and seconds waste away. He gives up in 
sorrow no hope he seeks, for forever and ever noone willl hear him weap. We sat there and 
sat there thinking poor little boy, But we played this sick game by treating him like a toy. A 
person benath is much deeper then love, A person inside is consumed with dark love. A 
person inside hides their true feelings to not show pain, A real person that looks through 
others eyes can see even through rain. This person that lies and stares at the sky, is aware 
of the starangers and things passing by. Everyday we count our blessings and say, Dear god 
thankyou foreverything and yur blessd ways. But what we cant see fully is ourselves 
devotionally or awake this dream fantasy of fiction or what we call truth, This heart we 
encounter may never lie under our vains, or take away our sorow or  tears that encourage 
pains. This voteing question why cant we be ourselves around everyone on the earth, 
because we were raised and taught a certain way at birth. For our mothers and fathers 
created who we are inside, so theres no shame in hideing youreself or Letting this person 
outside, Be the one who lives Youre life through, And lives life fully and spent, But most 
importantly lives life as you.

Inside the Membrane

The pain I feel inside 
Can be derived from my dad pride
I sit alone at night
There is this emptiness that is
The squandering of time
pondering what life will be like
Who knew that twenty-one
Would be More bumps and lumps than fun
I want to dump this chump
Standing in front of the mirror
Waiting till its clearer
This Brings a sobering effect
Over thinking each step
It is like I'm playing freeze tag
With these mundane demons
And They always keep me in check
Because I cant see them
I have been contained and constrained
I complain of chest pains
Till my veins pop off like champagne
Bruce Banner's a freight train
Going insane in the membrane

So should I smoke weed then
To cope with this moping season
Cause my yoke is heavy
and dope seems dope for lots of reasons
Even though I do know
What the verse says in Ephesians
"Do not get drunk on wine...
Instead be filled with the spirit"
This is my one beacon
That's give me hope when I hear it
Its a choice for heathens
Like me, to write our own lyrics
Since death has been beaten
And no longer need to fear it
His love is infinite

What Rewards

What Rewards…

You know I hear the words 
As they flow from your lips
An uphill climb, but we’ll come from behind
If we never quit trying...
To understand the root of the problem
Is to find the one and only solution

The noise is all around me
I can’t hear myself think
Emotional chains and I can’t break free
And physical pain, in my mind I’m on the brink
Sink or swim?

The bottom line and we’re coming up short
I can’t help but wonder about our fate
Three sisters in mythology turn into reality
They’re leading us through the gate…
And salvation is not waiting for us there

I’m trying to break away from this 
From seeds long ago sown in the soil
Life is long and if this is the test
What rewards for all the toil…

What rewards…All the toil…

What have I done

Verse 1:
The kiss from temptation
And the sins that awaken
Are corrupting the innocence of youth
And taking over the knowledge of truth
New ideas are made so clear
Hiding the lies we hold so dear
Step by step losing sight 
Of dangers made clear from the light

Chorus:
My God, My God!
What have I done
I can’t undo what I’ve become
When all these colors fade to gray
And I lose this light of day
I’m realizing it’s just a haze
I need to get out of these ways
My God, My God!
What have I done

Verse 2:
Remembering my failed hopes and dreams
Is even worse than what it seems
Always settling for less than the best
Has dragged me down to this mess
Hoping to have my slate wiped clean
Wishing this was all a dream

Chorus:
My God, My God!
What have I done
I can’t undo what I’ve become
When all these colors fade to gray
And I lose this light of day
I’m realizing it’s just a haze
I need to get out of these ways
My God, My God!
What have I done

Verse 3:
I thank you everyday 
For showing me the way
In order to show your grace
You offered to take my place
No longer am I afraid of death
I will follow you till my last breath


Chorus:
My God, My God!
What have I done
I can’t undo what I’ve become
When all these colors fade to gray
And I lose this light of day
I’m realizing it’s just a haze
I need to get out of these ways
My God, My God!
What have I done

So Close Yet So Far

I’m so sick of everything
I’m so sick of everyone
All these temptations 
And everyone giving in
 
In this world so cold
I long for something 
For something to hold 
When happiness seems so far
Trying to remember who you are

I’m so sick of the lies
You love what I despise 
Over and over again
I get dragged back to where I began 
The sun seems forgotten where I stand
Because in this dark night I lose who I am

In this world so cold
I long for something 
For something to hold 
When happiness seems so far
Trying to remember who you are

I can feel you dragging me down
While you are reaching the crown
You do everything you can to escape
To escape the memories of your fate 
I need to find a way from you
So I can learn to stay true 

In this world so cold
I long for something 
For something to hold 
When happiness seems so far
Trying to remember who you are

I’m so sick of the lies
You love what I despise 
Over and over again
I get dragged back to where I began 
The sun seems forgotten where I stand
Because in this dark night I lose who I am

Drifting Mainly

You belong to me mate 	 ( Intro )
And that be that!
Get on board
And grab your hat!

The ship was aghast at its new passenger	( Verse )
Like disdain for the lives that they now left behind,
Newcomers were scarce 
And they never would last
But I held up my chin nice and high.


The bloke who took me screamed	( Pre-chorus )
“Mop up the deck we’ve got things to do!” 
But I said sir, 
I’m just a boy and don’t know what’s to do.

And he said		( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Taking the seas for more than eight moons
We found islands and loot
That was bigger than most.
The taste of sea air 
With its wind in my hair
Took me away to this new life I lead.

After mopping the deck 
He grabbed my hand and screamed
 “Steer this ship boy!”
But I said sir,
I’m just a lad and don’t know where to go.

So the crew yelled	( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shore
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Surprising to me 
Was my unshaven face
The captain looked on 
And smiled with grace,
We stopped at a place 
Where the women were loose and didn’t mind
If we took a peak.

He said “Now you’re a man so let’s get on that boat,
We got places to be and some people to rope,
So grab that sword and drop that mop
Cause you’re no longer a boy in my eyes.”

I practiced the duel with the men in the crew
The captain took eye to my devilish pride,
And he took me aside and said 
 “Even in death I’m gonna miss you boy 
But don’t let it strike you 
Or kill your spirits
Cause even time can beat out the Grim.”

Then in the darkness came fire and screams,
Our vessel had stopped after fourteen years,
The crew fought hard and beat most of the men
But now, my Captain was dead.

We took the new ship watching ours sink deep
Saying goodbye to our drowning escape,
The crew turned towards me and asked
“What do we do?” and I smiled,
And they did to.

And we yelled    ( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Takin what’s mine
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Answer Me [Part 1]

Whats supposed to be the order
of things that just happen,
Is it supposed to have a flow
or is it supposed to be random,
The phantoms, I can hear 'em,
Man its too hard
I cant bear 'em,
Memories too vivid
man I wish I could tear 'em.

The pain I can resist
but its the fear I cant handle,
The mistakes that I made
is now flashin' on every channel,
No lights, I need a dazzle,
My freakin' mind
is irrational
As hard as I try
my life turns into a battle

I fight every moment of
my life, Im going crazy,
The whole world's in a riot
and they freakin' blame me,
The devil's tryin' to claim me,
The angels tryin'
to tame me
I try to be the light
But crap; My worries chain me

The pain in my shoulder grows
it compromises the burden,
I fall on my knees, I pray
I wish I could hear him,
But I hear nothing;
It's just a cold wave of silence
I wish I could pull the trigger
And end this freakin' violence.

I was bad God
Now Im scared
Please listen to me
Please God
Please answer my prayer

Do you feel the
Pain that I feel
Why the silence
Answer me
Do you hear me
Cryin' out loud
Are you listening
Answer me

Rainy Disappointment.

The rain is starting to pour.
The clouds are turning gray.
All my hopes I had in you .
are slowly fading away but fast.
Always thought this would last.
you said believe in you.
I gave you every chance. 
and this is all you could do.
Was take my heart and throw it away.
Say things that don't mean nothing.
touch my hands I feel nothing.
Kiss my lips and your numb to me.
numb to me.....

JOY

As the autumn of life drifts in
The lights of my eyes grow dim
With the joy of my years
Still beside me here
There is not much that I will fear

As the winter of my life arrives
My voice will be just a whisper
With the joy of my salvation
Waiting for me at the station
I will in quiet adoration kneel

In my mind spring will beckon me
The baggage  old and beat I'll leave
With the joy of my life just within sight
The constant yearning will cease
As perfect  joy will become complete

Circle of Life

Does life even matter
Don’t you realize your just gonna die
So you get rich and famous
But what will happen next

This circle of life
This never ending pain
You just search something to fill you up
But inside your heart truly dies

When one door closes
Why doesn’t another open
Your getting so worried from within
Everyday failure comes
And you know you can never belong

You search for awnsers
But you always reject the truth
It wont let you live the life of lies
And the sin that’s within

But you cant help but ask yourself


Does life even matter
Don’t you realize your just gonna die
So you get rich and famous
But what will happen next

This circle of life
This never ending pain
You just search something to fill you up
But inside your heart truly dies

What you don’t realize 
Is that God’s the only way
He is the truth and the light
He will forever stop this never ending fight

So put your trust in God above
And know what it means to fall in love
This is the only way to life
In the midst of all the strife

Iksiri zehir kendim

Ne dusle senle  gecti  yillar
Ne hikayeler  senle  yasadik birlikte
Bir gun yakin asik
Bir gun yabanci
Omur goctu boyle
Sanki  sen dusman bana
Hep birlikte yasanan  yillara
Kusmusun sevdasin boylesine
Soframdan  tat  almayan  sen
Yeni bir damak tadi  bulan ben
Sanki bilmem mi   gecmisimi 
Hic bitmeyen yanardag  ofkeni  
Ve siddetini yasadikca seni
Unuttum desem   unutsam desem
Sevgimle ortsem desem
Ayni bitmeyen ofke
Ne yapsam bilemem
Bu nasil hastalik  bende
Iksiri  zehir  kendim

Nowhere Land

To nowhere land in thought I often go,
Whilst there, I've naught to please.
Temporarily, I escape both ebb and floe,
Of life, while taking things at ease.

There, I view not days long past,
Nor contemplate those which may remain.
But am inclined to prayer and fast,
For this nowhere land is another's domain.

Morning Prayer

Moisture laden morning air
Wraps pale shawls round sleepy trees;
Wee birds sing in cool garden
Lifting praise on pleasing breeze.
Bees busy dusting flowers,
Packing perfumed honey bags,
Buzz low to kiss choice blossoms
Drooped 'neath dewdrops downward drag.
I worship, cloistered dawning,
Held still in God's supreme hand;
Linger, soft laughing moments, 
Giving grace for day's demands.

Salvation's Cost

Three crosses braved a forlorn hill,
Focused in vision, I liken to the one.
Though ages pass, I review it still,
It bore a thief, not God's only son.

While one evil doer paid Jesus scant heed,
From one cross, amnesty was sought.
Jesus forthwith pardoned his past deed,
In brevity of a wink paradise was bought.

Once seeing myself and this thief the same,
I discerned the centers communique to me.
That hope was abrogated, lest from here it came,
And albeit, salvation was pricey, twas also free.

Together we belong

When I found my true path 
I remember the many wounds
That healed in my heart
And all because I found you.
And in my dream, I could dance
Upon white cotton clouds
In heaven's romance.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.

Your love and warmth 
Help me get through the days
When heavy storms 
And rough trail threatens my faith
And I find that you've carried me all along
Until heaven becomes our home.


As I walked up my path
Found thorn filled, I found the truth,
That deepened the love in my heart
That brought me even closer to you.
And through the tears, in the sweet breeze
Of your loving embrace
I found grace.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.

Your love and warmth
Helps me get through the days
When heavy storms
And rough trail threatens my faith
And I find that you've carried me all along
Until heaven becomes our home.

And in my dream, I could dance
Upon white cotton clouds
In heaven's romance.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
And through the tears, in the sweet breeze
Of your loving embrace
I found grace.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
With you, no fear I know
Together we are where we belong.
Together we are where we belong.

Hiding in the Pine Trees

I'm waiting for salvation
For the morning sun to rise
I'm waiting for freedom
To look me in the eyes

But I'm hiding in the pine trees
And I'm hiding from the light
I'm hiding in the shadows 
And hiding in plain sight

Do I see a tunnel
Or do I see a wall
Should I crawl forward
Or from it will I fall

I used to be a child 
When life was a game
And I am yet a child
But life is not the same

I'm looking for a warmth
That salvation must provide
But until I find that freedom
In the pine trees I will hide

Icewater Home

     Beneath the bay's 
frigid waters
life abounds
    large fish swim 
and green plants grow
    Frosty air above ,
movement below
No fisherman here today 
   the air is too chilly
    Let's give our planet a respite
    When the waters are 
too cold 
    It is difficult 
to live and prosper
   Ice water chills 
our souls
    Yet we will survive 
and live on 
    and our hopes 
will live on as well
The ice water home 
     won't last forever
The frozen lake will thaw
  In the meantime 
    we'll feast on our dreams

The ode to my wilting Flower

Little sibling don't you weep
We'll be together again some day
Close your eyes;go to sleep
It'll all soon be o.k
The longing for you stabbed me deep
Very soon I'll be on your way...
For us to be together like the old golden days
Now don't you fear,don't you cry,wipe those tears off your face
I have th faith that everything will soon go back to place
Mama wants you to be an ace
Make her smile;prove the world that you're not a broken vase
Face the sky, worship God
He's our most devoted guard
United or apart we will forever be...
Part of our family
With our blood in pain
Together,we will surely stop this rain
And all of us will once again
Live in harmony in our torn domain
Aunt, mom, our cousins and dad
Always wanted us to have the life they never had
Their past was very sad
But they brought us up well, for that,we must be glad
Thou the family is torn apart
The hope for a better future will never leave my heart
Aunt always said:"The good day will come"
So let's be on the guard for the rise of that morning's sun.

Words In A Jukebox

I speak words, rawly, but 
productively, Poetry Is the 
Passion, I compose, with A 
gleaming heart, that spins the 
souls of others, vibrantly 
shinning, among the rainbows,
Colorfully booming, Tenderly In 
A jukebox, as my ego, grows 
up the beanstalk, like sun-use, 
Wisely owl, among expression to,
its knowledgeable ponder, for those 
who listen, Do you hear, what I hear? 
Do you see, what I see? Do you know, 
what I know? Please take A step-
back, and listen chary to it 
again, As I compose my lyrics, 
down on A sheet of white 
paper, for all the world to, 
see, Hear, and know, because 
We are worthy, in the eyes of
God...

Race for Grace

Race for Grace, tighten your lace
Heaven is the place, its always been the case
Stare in space, wonder where is this place
Can't win with a 9 and an ace, go all the way
So seek HIM and pray, so when is the day
We go unto Grace, in my heart HE is 1st place
So do you still wonder how to win, the Race for Grace
You are puzzled, or in a maze
But i found, the only 1 to arose from a grave
It is we HE saved, so do you see
We all can win, The Race for Grace

Should I

I shall raise my head to the heavens
And sing hallelujah in sweet reverence.
For the light shines bright and even twinkles.
Oh yes the stars do jingle.

Should I ever fall in disbelief,
Should I lose my way without relief,
Should I ever turn a different way,
May heavens light shine through on that day.

As the planets rotate around the sun,
Their beautiful energy will never be undone.
To understand their resonant message,
Oh yes it is the visage.

Should I ever fall in disbelief,
Should I lose my way without relief,
Should I ever turn a different way,
May heavens light shine through on that day.

While the pages turn from day to day,
And I stand under the light of heaven’s sway,
I know I’ll be okay when I hear you say,
Oh yes I love you each and every day.

HARD TO SEE

                                                                   Water In My Eyes

It’s hard to take off, when you’re left grounded.  Something lost I can’t find it.
 I can’t see my way anymore, I need a guide

                                               “Hard to see with water in your eyes”

A feeling that comes over you, it comes and goes 
Often now putting me to my knees, a thirst for knowledge has grown.
Interpretations given to me, I want to fly but I’m stuck on the ground is what I realized.
I can’t see my way anymore, I need a guide


                                                “Hard to see with water in your eyes”

You carry those you lost and offer you in their place, all you have are the memories a heart ache, a still picture of their face. Quest for knowledge you have shown, you can only save yourself when it’s time to kneel at the thrown. Interpretations given to me, still unable to fly I can’t see my way anymore, I need a guide


                                                      “Hard to see with water in your eyes”

Arms out reached in front of me, waiting for a touch back to assist and help guide me, I know your there even in the open air, as the breeze passes by pushing out the water in my eye.
 Looking to the sky before it drips drops and it freezes. As u notice only your sign the one only you can see. If you found it it’s meant for you to continue to believe. Before you know it you’re looking up into the sky. You see clearly through a dry eye. No more needs God has heard you and now he will guide you.

Walking a set path try to live a life right. God will always give you your way of sight.
Keeping faith is all for just such a reason. It’s nice to see through all life’s seasons. But almost daily it gets blurry and things change size.







                                                      “Hard to see with water in your eyes”
                                                                                 By Paul J Williams Sr

Looking for Jesus

He did not have to
It was not mandatory

But He did.

Leaving the luxury
Of His Father’s splendour
His home of indescribable
Beauty and grandeur

He peeped
He descended
He came down
To me

The living condition 
In my habitation
Was one of discomfort and stench
Filled with broken promises,
Pains from the past,
Hopelessness for the future.

Yet He made up His mind about me
Unlike me-
He did not have second thoughts
About the weather,
The leaking pots
The rusty bath tub
The aged sofa
Or the things I had done
And had not done
He moved in with me
This Christmas
He promised me a love:
Never forsaking
Never dying
Never ending

Dear God,
If you are looking for Jesus this Christmas,
He moved in with me

Among the Worst of Them

You close your eyes at night
Trying to escape this never ending fight 
You chase your dreams
Wishing everything wasn’t what it seems 
But you can’t escape
This hopeless fate 

I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them
	
Those voices inside
Oh how they lie
But with every whisper 
Oh how you wanna die
This addiction is always getting you
Inside there’s nothing you can do

I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them

No matter how much you scream
You’re never waking from this evil dream
You do everything you can to escape
Before salvation is too late

The world’s judgments
Are so much more than permanent
You seek for any kind of help
But they’ll never understand what you’ve felt 
Is there anyone out there for you
Or is love too good to be true

I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them

I was a sinner destined for hell
Never knowing how far I fell
But then I was saved by God above
And I want to show you heaven’s love 
No matter how long it takes
Through all your mistakes
I want to show you it’s never too late

 I may not know who you are or where you’ve been
But I know I’m among the worst of them
You say there’s no one that can change you now
But I know I’m among the worst of them

Going to the country

Going to the country

I’m going to the country
Lord I’ve had this city life
Going to pick up our possessions
I’m going to take my lady wife
Then I am leaving this old city
I’m going soon the time is rife

I love it in the country
How I love those giant trees
I love each thing about it
All its peace and harmony
Yes, I’m moving to the country
The only place I yearn to be

Oh lordy, lordy, lordy
How I love the country life
I want to sit there by the river
Away from all the city strife
Yes I’m going to the country
We’re going now, the time is rife

Find me a place beside the river
Then just throw me in a hole
Don’t worry about religion 
Let the lord reach to my soul
Let the creatures take this body
Then with the planet I’ll be whole.

My Eyes Were Dark

I just wanna make you proud
So I'll scream out loud
I just wanna let you see
You are the best part of me

My eyes were dark
My heart was gone
Don’t you know I was too far gone
Inside I faded away
But you brought me the light of day

Inside I always weep
I prayed to God for my soul to keep
It always felt like he was never there
But now I know he answered every prayer

My eyes were dark
My heart was gone
Don’t you know I was too far gone
Inside I faded away
But you brought me the light of day

I know I was never bold
Strength was never that easy for me
I know my heart was cold
Love was something I could never see

I just wanna make you proud
So I'll scream out loud
I just wanna let you see
You are the best part of me

My eyes were dark
My heart was gone
Don’t you know I was too far gone
Inside I faded away
But you brought me the light of day

SOUL MATE

              SOUL MATE
I came in the name of He who gave you breath.
As certain as the emptiness of time,
as hopeful as your life, and meaningless as death,
I came to stay.

No holy water, no exorcist's demand,
can quench your thirst; your need for all I am.
I fill your head with things not meant to understand,
I came to stay.

I breath your name, tormented you may seem,
and sleepless is your night, I fill your time.
I am the joy of life beyond your dying scream,
I came to stay.

I came in the name of He who gives you death.
I am the calm and blinding of the light.
Forever part of you, I am your very breath.
I came to stay.

For Bruce Springsteen

for bruce springsteen...


it was a rain-swept monsoon day

way back then, so many moons away

when i felt the music strumming in my veins

setting me free like a runaway horse without any reins

you sang of simple truths, 

your verse spoke to people just like me

in my lonely, wasted, and desolately quiet night

as you screamed out tragic human wrongs, and of everyone's plight

'bobby jean' spoke to me

of that girl down the street

glimpses of whom, we as innocents would furtively meet

and 'the river' that flowed through my ever-barren heart

led me down further roads of thunder

when slowly i finally learnt that the hardest part was fighting on

and never to surrender

to the hard-luck dreams that were born to run

while i danced in the dark 

with memories vivid and stark

even as i whined like that dog who for forever lost his howling bark

and then a 'human touch' came along

and 'better days' seemed real, not just words in a song

and still you sang and swayed and spoke straight into my unseeing eyes

as gardens of secrets were opened, and as your fist punched the skies

in an anger that i too felt and in whose cauldron i too burned

as we saw murder get incorporated, while on its wobbly axis, our fragile world apathetically turned

and then suddenly i was told that i was all grown up

working on a highway of scattered ideals

and absolving myself by sprinkling some coins in a waiting cup

well, after all these years of walking along so many a thorny road

with an armour of your verse covering me, even as i hear them taunt me and even as they continue to goad

but now i can feel myself fading away, into the bleakness of this coming night

just like the ghost of that old tom joad...

NOT BY MIGHT

A step, a fall
I rise to fly.
A sit, asleep
I wake to work.

I fly to heights unseen
Uphigh, that low.
I work ernestly
So hard, un-noticed.

All I do,
All I give.
Almighty I for-seek.

So I seek and found;

A step, a fall
Hope, He besieges upon me 
with each breath taken.

I rise to fly
For He is my Strenght.

A sit, asleep
In His hands my burdens I leave
His laps my comfort.

I wake to work
For His Grace abounds.

I fly to heights unseen
On His wings I soar.

Uphigh, that low
My upsets He trends to propel 
high.
 
I work ernestly
Only He rewards my real wage.

So hard, un-noticed
His consent is more than 
enough.

All I do,
All I give.
Almighty I found.

Fate or Fiction

Is this fate or fiction....
the aesthetics of your love is a marvelous depiction
I am having a love seizure or is your love an affliction
Is this fate or fiction? 

It must fate, our paths have crossed our spirits soar just right 
you calm and sweet and never like to fight...
bring security and confidence in such a delightful way..
the expressions of your thoughts blows my mind away
Is the fate or fiction?

It takes courage to find out which one would be the exemption.. fate or fiction? 
when you have been hurt by an ex's restrictions
but the aesthetics of your love has become my addiction.
No Fiction this is Fate.

You remind me of love and you remind me of pain

 Like a nocturnal creature I lie awake, with every passing moment waiting for the day to break!
Feeling at peace with the activities around, 'tis a solace that during the day I don't feel bound!!
     The sun rays bring me hope and they bring me light, they take me away from the person who haunts my being in the night...
      I feel in shackles and I feel in pain when despite my efforts I just can't stop you from intruding my mind all over again!
      I look at your picture and I see your face, can't take my eyes off that gleeful gaze...
You remind me of Sunflowers and you remind me of Rain but at the same time your face brings back the pain...
      The pain that tore me apart, the pain that wore my heart, the pain that hardened my faith though it was meant to break!!
      The day is easy as it goes by, with it's lovely colors which is a distraction to the eye...
As the dusk approaches my heart begins to sink and I begin to feel low. You are coming and I have no choice but to bow...
      To bow to your whims and beg you to go, asking you to leave me in peace and wanting to let go!!
Clutching to my hopes and whimpering like a child, as if begging for a toy she so can't get off her mind!
      It's easy to find you in your pictures and easier to frame you in words, because knowing you otherwise brings no joy but only hurts...
      You can't stop the flood of emotions nor can you barricade my love, time has given it wings and it's gonna soar like a dove!!
      It was my love that pulled you to me and gave me the moments I treasure in my heart; that too was nothing but a mere dream in the start...
      If it was a dream that brought you to me then, it's gonna be a dream which will manifest itself all over again..!!!

Little Shopper Girl (for Deborah's Contest)

Note: To the tune of "Little Drummer Boy"


Come, they sold me, to Macy’s this year
The perfect gifts await for holiday cheer

I’ll push and shove my way through the crowd
Cuss if I don’t succeed, for crying out loud

Stomp on feet of shoppers with my heels
Clear a path to line's front as everyone reels

Bent o’er in pain they grouse, “Who is this cruel witch?”
And I scream back to them in a very high pitch

To reach fine gifts I create travesty
Then single-handedly grab the last Nativity

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
What have I done to find Thee
Done to find Thee

Sadly, I glimpse back at those I’ve attacked
And hand the manger scene to one farther back

The truest gift we find is not on the shelves
We’ll never find this gift within our lost selves

If we forget to share the holiday joys
With shopping schemes and ill-conceived ploys

Make way for kinder shoppers courteously
To find the greatest gift called humanity

Just leave the shops behind and visit your church
And bow before His grace from the pew as you perch

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
For now I’ve found Thee
Now I’ve found Thee

Anwnn

Coming from the misty lake Lough Leane
Came a beautiful maiden of the name of Niamh
Upon a mare, for she is not from the world of man
A seraphic princess from Anwnn
Upon the shores she claimed around his kin
"I have came for Oisin son of Finn"
"Maiden you come to me so alluringly 
I am he, if we marry for all eternity!"

And so he rode upon her horse to the secrets of Anwnn
For he and she, they'd be happy for all eternity 

Come with me to Anwnn
I am she, your queen Niamh
I have come for you Oisin, son of Finn
Don't leave me or you'll see 
The age of man
The age of man
The age of man

A Godly Insight

"What if you woke up tomorrow with only
what you asked god for today?"
As I read, a scowl is freed, then a smile
indeed, and I'll tell you why - I say:

"Poseidon is not so beneficent,
And neither - I wager - is Zeus.
So it seems to me if a man is honest,
he wakes up with what HE has produced."

This much is true. But I jest, of course,
I know they mean well, but let's see...
If god is provider, I'll have some hot cider!
...And yet none is present for me.

"Now, now, be a gentleman. Don't let your
sharp tongue be like teeth." I think.
But if others' boats fill with water,
ought I not inform them they'll sink?

Your Rose

Lord, I would be like Your own sweet Rose
When underneath the world's vain rush
I have been bruised; a wounded thrush,
Whose song is trapped within its throat,
Who cannot lift to voice one note
Its weary head and sorrow knows.

Though I be trampled 'neath the throngs
Of grasping, pleasure seeking souls
And waves of pain high in me roll,
I would be crushed in silence, deep,
That even my inmost soul would keep
And whisper not of how was wronged.

But ever, as with vengeance black,
They tramp the petals, limp and torn,
Would send forth fragrance, sweet and warm,
And bless the feet of that mad crowd,
Beneath their onslaught remain bowed
And by Your love turn hatred back.

It was Your wounding, sacred Rose,
The fragrance of Your love for me
Blown by the winds of infamy
Down from that dark hill, Calvary,
That brought Your passion home to me
And feeds the flower which in me grows.

America Melting Pot

A land where all our dreams come true,
A place where we can start brand new,
Where opportunity can chase us down,
Lord have mercy, may you always be found.

For decades, we have praised Your name,
Our slogan, “In God we trust” brought us fame,
We need your help God in our towns,
Lord have mercy, may You always be found.

Moments of silence brought us peace,
Many people’s prayers have drastically decreased,
Have we forgotten who will always be around?
Lord have mercy, may You always be found.

America we are so great, why are so many filled with hate?
Keep your prayers, keep your God, he will be there when things get hard,
For sometimes we need to fall on the ground, 
Lord have mercy, may You always be found.

His eyes are always watching over us,
United we stand, it is an absolute must,
Gods grace always abounds,
Lord have mercy, may You always be found.

A venture, a journey, many pursuing a goal,
Our sweet country can touch every soul.
You can learn so much even when there is not a sound,
Lord has mercy, may You always be found.

Where ever you go whatever you do,
There is always someone that can teach you something new,
A mixing feast that is so profound,
Lord have mercy, may You always be found.

Friends Through It All

This Lyric is dedicated to my best friends in my life, I couldn't make it through life without you!  

All these thoughts in my head
They’re so dangerous
All these thoughts in my mind
Leaving me in the abyss
I’m a prisoner of my head
I hope to God I don’t wind up dead
Lost in the cold of the night
Giving up the fight
I can’t do this on my own

Thank God
I’ve got my brothers up a head of me
And my sisters at my side
They’ve always been there for me
Through the pain they could never see
I’ve known I’ve won
When it’s all said and done
At the end I’ve got my friends
And that’s all I need

This journey’s so cold
Having no one to hold
This night’s so dark
Without love’s spark
We can’t be made
To live life alone 
We gotta be more
Than a sinking stone 

Thank God
I’ve got my brothers up a head of me
And my sisters at my side
They’ve always been there for me
Through the pain they could never see
I’ve known I’ve won
When it’s all said and done
At the end I’ve got my friends
And that’s all I need

I can’t go back to where I began 
Stuck in the sinking sand
I must continue on this road
Carrying such a heavy load
Because I know there’s a light
At the end of it all
No matter how many times I fall
I have received God’s grace
And such a loving embrace
I must learn to 
Live 
Laugh
And Love
At the end of it all

Thank God
I’ve got my brothers up a head of me
And my sisters at my side
They’ve always been there for me
Through the pain they could never see
I’ve known I’ve won
When it’s all said and done
At the end I’ve got my friends
And that’s all I need
	
Live
Laugh
And love

Sun and Moon

God is perfect in all things he creates
shining his love from the very first day
The sun and the moon he set up high 
they pour light to be our guide
Gods light he puts in my heart 
without him I wouldn't feel whole
When he returns all see his face gleam bright 
coming to carry us to our home on high
I can only imagine what heaven will be
the glorious colors, lights, and souls to meet
Sun and moon no more needed
The Almighty and Jesus Christ is the glow that will be

Still Standing

I've been beat up
I've been knocked down
No matter what happens
I'm still standing on
solid ground

I've been passed over
I've been stepped on
No matter what happens
I still have faith
I continue to stand tall
and strong

I've been lifted up
only to let down
No matter what happens
I don't stand alone

Jesus is standing with me
I see His footprints next to mine
He is the reason why
I'm still standing
strong and proud

God Knows Our Tracks











Since Adam and Eve,
Tracks, man has put down.
While some we leave are happy,
Others, give occasion to frown.

Tracks, that we as men,
Might some time wish to erase.
But only God can remove,
Man can only retrace.

Those footprints of our lives,
Eventually In history you'll find.
Whether satisfactory or atrocious,
They're what we'll leave behind.

As these tracks God surveys,
He'll sway not, nor will He bend. 
But render appropriate judgment,
On where eternity we'll spend.

God, is a discerner of tracks,
So from life's trail we can't hide.
But through Grace He made a way,
That in His tracks we can abide.

MARY'S BABY

To Bethlehem a virgin came--
A pilgrim and a stranger,
'Twas here she bore a baby boy,
And laid Him in a manger.

While shepherds watched their flocks by night, 
In nearby fields abiding, 
A host of the Heaven's angels came,
To sing the wondrous tidings.

The wise men followed, long and far,
God's guiding star before them.
They knelt before the newborn king
To worship and adore Him.

Mary's baby, sweet and mild,
The long awaited Christ child.
She called his name Immanuel--
God is with us; all is well.

Storm In The Wind

(Oh Girl),
You're like the storm and the wind, 
Tearin up the city and breaking the 
trees, 
Whenever I'm around you girl, 
I get weak, 
You're breaking my heart, 
And tearing up me, 
(Chorus) 
Breaking my heart, 
Breaking my heart,  (Tearing up me)
(Ooh girl)
I know we will make it, 
Even though the wind is blowing 
careless at me, 
I can't do this without you girl, 
I'll get weak, 
Stop breaking my heart, 
Bringing me to my knees,
(Chorus) 2x 
Even though the love hurricane is 
blowing careless at me, 
I can't do this without you girl, 
I'm too weak, 
You breaking my heart, 
You're the storm of the week.

My Answered Prayers

My life has never been easy.
I was once a lost soul. 
Until that one special day when
his angel wrapped her wings around me with 
a tight hold.
She flew me through sky and guided herself 
through the lives of others.
Other lost souls that is.... and slowly
made my sorrows disappear.
Relinquished my fears and 
replaced them with love. 
We flew like soaring doves.
Finally, we came to a stop. 
And it's all my sorrows that I forgot.
She whispered in my ear...
All the words I needed to hear. 
In that instance I began to cry,
not for me...
but for the other lost souls who needed that same ride.

Only Faith Remains

My little room - beloved walls
Are closing in upon me now;
Black midnight darkness settles in;
Around me soul winds rip and howl.

Yet, silence is beyond quiet,
Charges with mute voices sinister,
While Time stalks by on cleated feet
And minutes hours minister.

I am alone and all seems lost.
There is no sensing comfort here;
No soothing balm, sweet spoken words,
I feel no dove-like presence near.

Here faith walks naked in the night
Where famished need eats soul away.
There is no solace for my thoughts:
Hope is the garment of the day.

Just faith remains alone, child trust
Stripped bare of prideful ornament;
Vulnerable, yet she alone
Secures the promised settlement.

Think What I Think

Somedays I wish I didnt
Think what I think,
These patterns of thought,
Have me in the sink,
Then bring me to the top,
To put me back in my seat

Somedays I wish I didnt
Believe what I believe,
So I could,
Give into my passion to please,
Dive into my sinful desires,
and have control of my destiny

Everyday, I come to realize at night
With my eyes wide,
That my flesh I dont have to Fight,
Because Christ runs my life,
And he takes the boulders off my shoulders,
I am the gun and he is the holder,
I am the clay and he is the molder,
And his grace is sweeter every moment I grow older


Details | Lyric | |

I'm New

I’m new internally….
If you cut me I will bleed,
But I’m new true indeed.

Created by my maturity, I will prosper with security
And all my dreams will come true; because I am new….

No longer playing silly games
No longer fantasize
No longer playing silly games
No longer compromise

During the day I feel the same, pray I won’t go insane
Clouds have given me thunderous rain, but I walk with open eyes.
Aware God has me clear in sight…..I no longer run, I stand, I fight.
And when there are no stars at night.
My vision still sees a beautiful sight.
Because I’m New.

Nettles

God allows some nettles among our flowers,
And as we encounter these days of frown.
From the far horizon, a confluence of showers,
To retain life's garden from remaining brown.

Periodically we see our vitality shattered,
As eternal sleep beckons those we love.
We clutch God's hand as days are tattered,
Thistles fixate vision on the throne above.

As we yank at nettles we find seed scatter,
We cultivate and dress our flowers with dung.
The lesson, if learned, only Grace will matter,
Not our slight of hand or glibness of tongue.

On sunny days when universe seems bright,
God discerns we're once more at our best.
Exposed thistles disappear amid God's light,
And He awaits to assist in our next life test.

Misty Morning

As light peeps through the silent trees
to touch the damp and mossy earth,
the birds pay homage to creation -
singing in sweet jubilation.

While a young fawn grazes peacefully
along the edge of the tranquil valley,
falls an early morning shower -
God in His gentle power.

It is a rain-drenched misty morning
as the dewdrop kisses the blossom;
it is another fresh beginning 
as He rules each living thing.

How silent is the dark rain forest
but for beasts crying from the nest,
fishes splashing on crystal water,
wings fluttering above in the air.

Beneath the sky’s great canopy
is this lush garden that I see;
on this new morning that I greet
comes a renewal of my faith.

Prime Mover

Like the seraphs whose wings unfold,
Christ's light and glory goes not untold;
as the love of his humble grace
moves inside me all time and space,

as the planets orbit heaven's sun
and encircle it one by one--
so, too, am I caught in his sway,
beloved of him from day to day.

Through hosts of astral dimension
God's angels fix their attention
with expectancy and burning pause
amidst the universe's First Cause.

He, the one true Incarnation  
that begets cosmic causation,
resolves the Infinite Regress
from the pre-Socratics' egress

with his omniscient wisdom
and the archives of his kingdom
where all can come and read and know
what miracles he'll yet bestow.

Waiting

Shadows lengthen, the landscape dims,
And all that was my rising sun
Is drifting out beyond the rim
Of life's elusive horizon.
So many times my footsore soul
Has traveled following that light,
Pursuing the ever moving goal
That sinks into a sea of night.
Seething waves leap in the blackness;
Their crashing drowns my feeble cry.
With hope deferred, Fear and Madness,
Hard on my heels, snap evil lies.
I cannot voyage on alone;
No craft can weather such a sea!
I wait. I face the dark unknown
Till God brings daybreak back to me.

Heart Song

Such is life, you know, we must go on
Blendin what’s at hand
We can rise, we can fall, sometimes
still, we don’t understand.

Heaven dreams of men who rise so high
Laughin when they can
Bringin joy, to the sky, not sighs
Not carin where they land

Not givin in to sorrow
Not givin in to pain
Liftin up their voices
You gotta learn to sing again

Refrain

And come on, make your heart light,
come on make your heart bright again
dry your tears, let your fears, all end
raise your voice, bring a cheer and then
we will be, wild and free, let’s extend.

I never new much of anger
I fell toward the Light
And I scoured the seasons 
Burning way too bright

A ruddy flame that burnt boldly
Framing angels of night
Just like a soul phoenix rising
into the arms of His delight.

Not giving in to sorrow
Not givin in to pain
Liftin up their voices
You gotta learn to sing again

And come on, make your heart light,
come on make your heart bright again
dry your tears, let your fears, all end
raise your voice, bring a cheer and then
we will be, wild and free, let’s extend.

The Come-back King is Coming Back for You [Lyrics of Song] (Written by inspiration of Singer, Wintley Phipps) Jesus is the come-back King— He came back from the dead; He’s coming back for you— For your eternity He’s plead. Your sins that were once scarlet; Covered by His righteousness; He lived a perfect life— To grant you holiness. Chorus Jesus is the come-back King— No greater king will reign; He’s coming in the clouds To collect His chosen who remain. The come-back King is coming— Coming back for you; It’s because He loves you; Your life, He will renew. Jesus is the come-back King— He came back from death’s sleep. He came back to be your Savior; To provide comfort should you weep. He sent you His Holy Spirit, So you can overcome; Reject Satan’s temptations— Your victory to be won. The come-back King is happy, As happy as can be; He knows He did not die in vain On Calvary’s, Roman tree. You took up His offer— Of freedom and of choice. He’s going to hold a party; In heaven, we’ll all rejoice. Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2010-2012 www.maureenlefanue.com

A SONG TO HIS LORD : THE WISEST WORDS EVER SPOKEN

Sustain me with faith to increase the sweetness of inner joy,
let my eager palate taste the freshness of these citrons...
as love overflows the walls of the humblest and sincerest heart:
o beautiful maidens...like the swift gazelles and hinds,
don't awaken any amorous desire in me before its time! 
On His left arm I find rest, as His right arm embraces me;
my Lord is the eternal keeper, His voice vibrates over mountains and hills
and keeps me safe from the dangers and impurities of the world...
shielding me from the tears, sorrows and pains given to the sinners.
The fig trees have been fruitful and give off their fragrance,
every vine is blossoming..." Get up, my chosen one, my just one and come away!"
He speaks to me saying, " Come away, faithful one...all suffering is done,
my grace is upon you: the flowers have bloomed in the fields;
rejoice and sing your praises to me! Hear my voice roaring through the Holy Land!"
O my Holy one, I long to see your shining and glorious face
in the Mount Sinai and hear Your loud voice speak with a tone of kindness.
Cast away the thieves and envious ones who spoil the vineyards...
will they bring forth good wine that I will serve at banquets?
My Lord is mine and I am His delight, He guides His flock among innocents
and until the dawn has fully risen and all shadows have vanished:
become my Savior and like the gazelle or tender stag climbing rugged terrain,
a messenger or child will unexpectedly come to accomplish Your work.

To The song Hallelujah

There were many days when all was well
When hearts were pure and smiles swelled
I used to live in a shack down by the sea
I’ve seen the tears of joy at night
The radiance of stars so bright
It beauty melted the stony parts of me

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There were many nights when I felt fright
When there was no one to be found in sight
But I had to keep on pushing, pressing on
And when I thought of the good old days
My only words became sweet praise
And the winds just whispered hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I know there is a God above
Who healed me by his tender love
Though all I’ve ever known was pain and doubt
It’s not by might nor by my power
It’s by his spirit I sing this hour
A redemptive, thankful,  glory hallelujah


Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah


They say that people cannot change
But I know better, because I’m not the same
And since I did, well, really, what’s it to you
There is a word I now call victory
I only know it because I’ve been set free
The holy one deserves his hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

My Own Disease

Every night I cry
Always asking why
Why is it that I chain myself
To this mental prison cell

Crawling on my hands and knees 
Knowing I’m my own disease
This heart is my enemy
I am my own disease 

So much pain held within my chest
Nightmares come whenever I lay to rest
If you could ever see everything in my past
I know this love could never last

Crawling on my hands and knees 
Knowing I’m my own disease
This heart is my enemy 
I am my own disease

If you could truly see
The darker side of me
You would see the demons within
Trying to kill me with my sin

Every night I stand in awe
Knowing I stand broken in his law
God sees the darkness of my sin
Still Christ died to let me in

Crawling on my hands and knees 
Knowing I’m my own disease
This heart is my enemy
I am my own disease

LIFE

Two hearts beat, now beating faster; beating until they're one 
Two souls breathe, now breathing deeper; breathing until they're done 
Two lovers see forever, and forever is where they run 
One child comes home tomorrow for life has just begun 

Even when the rainbow's glowing, the skies can seem so gray 
Even when the wind's not blowing, the tides can turn your way 
And when the water's raging, beneath skies that seem so blue 
It's just your body aging, and it has nothing to do with you 

So now when our God comes calling, I'll hold your hand and stroke your hair 
Yes, as snowflakes start falling, I will look for you everywhere 
And Mother, as you start flying, remember as you rise above 
Marlene, you are not dying, but finding everlasting love 

One child goes home tomorrow to embrace the Father and the Son 
One child who knows no sorrow, for life has just begun

Run away

What does everything come to
When it’s less about what you love 
It used to be about passion
Now everything’s come to greed

Remembering the talks we had
Of life and love and what we held dear
It’s those times I treasure
But those times are far from near

So Run Away
From all your dreams
Forget what you left behind
Chase your lies
To find your greed
Even though it’s an empty need 

The talent is sliding through
Forgetting what you always knew
Turned your back on what is true
And now I realize I’m loosing you


These lies of success
Are keeping you away from your best
Now the passion is turning into fame
Leaving you put to shame

So Run Away
From all your dreams
Forget what you left behind
Chase your lies
To find your greed
Even though it’s an empty need

More than this

Thinkin of the things you love
And lookin at the stars above
Makes you wonder deep inside
Of the question you just can’t hide

There’s gotta be more than this
Always missing out on life’s bliss
Desperate to smell the roses
But every time your door closes

Shut your eyes
And Stop the lies
You know there’s more than this
Inside you die
And now you cry
Because you’ve had your last kiss

From your youth
You’ve searched for truth
But what you could not find
Will be here till the end of time

You long for love
 But it is only given from God above
Every painting has a painter
And this creation has a creator

Shut your eyes
And Stop the lies
You know there’s more than this
Inside you die
And now you cry
Because you’ve had your last kiss

Boundless Love

"I come to the garden alone"
In the cool freshness of morning
While the Dove's melodious tone
Invites me to join the song

While "He walks with me and  talks with me"
About His "Amazing love, and how it can be"
How "His spirit is within me"
And "That He my King, would die for me"

Now "In my heart there rings a melody"
I now sing in harmony
With that wonderful cooing Dove
I will always carry that memory within me

That memory of my God's love
"His love his boundless love
Reaches down and touches me"
"It is my Savior's boundless love"

The Candle's Flame

One burning candle,
One lighting flame
In the middle of the dark
This flame became
The hope and strength,
The width the length
The only light
Shining bright
In the middle of the night
Like a lonely star in the sky
Like a lonely drop of rain falling by,

Desolation,
A SENSATION of fear,
 A sensation of broken tears,
A timorous heart living a hopeless hour
With no power,
With just one flame of light
Shining really bright
In the middle of the night.

Alone the flaming candle stands
Holding no hands
feeble and weak
Its sweat starts to leak
The wind blows
The tremble shows
The fear echoes
Nothing is lending a hand
The darkness is giving commands
Then, Slowly, slowly the flame would fade away
Keeping no trace
And the darkness takes place.

Can’t see the life 
Just feeling the strife
Darkness stabbed the only hopeful light
With an invisible knife
Each one alone
Alive in the dark
Looking at the sky
Seeing a spark....

Whiter Than Snow

Washed in the blood of the Lamb
In your presence Lord I am
Whiter than snow, Lord I thank you so
I am washed in the blood of the Lamb.

And my soul rejoices in my God
For great things He has done for me
Saved by His grace I am what I am
I am washed in the blood of the Lamb.

the clock is ticking

I awake and i see the sunrise just as you do. 
But at times i feel these clouds cover my mind. 
My desire fades and i long to sleep. 
Why won't you come and lay beside me? 
I feel like it's time to save someone. 
To save myself. 
Come. 
Place your hand in my hand. 
Wear your heart on your sleeve. 
I guarantee that i will guard it with my life. 
Can't you see that i'm here to serve my purpose?
 Born an bred an optimist. 
I became a chosen pessimist. 
I wandered down a broken path. 
Unbreak my heart. 
I'll show you something that will last. 
Forever. 
Take a breath. 
This is all that i have left. 
Broken promises have left me scarred. 
Tragedy has locked me behind these iron bars. 
Come set me free. 
Give me something to believe in and i'll show you a bleeding heart. 
Full of passion. 
My patience has worn thin. I've been abandoned. 
Lead astray. 
Now take my hand. 
Let's walk this way. 
You are the sun and you are the stars that wipe away the clouds. 
You are the drug that keeps me calm and sane. 
A light in this darkened world. 
The Hell i have created for myself. 
The trials and tribulations that have left me scathed. 
All the times i have been betrayed. 
Trust lost. 
I know you are not the same. 
Trust in me as i have trusted in you. 
I'll take your hand and no longer tremble in fear. 
I'm not asking for much. 
Just for a few moments to pick up the pieces. 
The clock is ticking. 
Distance has separated itself from me. 
As you draw near i have nothing to fear but fear itself. 
What is there to believe? 
Have faith. 
Find hope. 
Believe in something. 
Someone. 
Do something with the cards you have been dealt. 
Make a move. 
The only thing you have to lose is time. 
A restless soul. 
Sleepless nights have taken their toll. 
Break the cycle. 
This is our time to pursue the hopes and dreams you have held close. 
The hour glass is spilling. 
Look me in the eyes. 
This is our time to rise. 
You are a friendly face in the crowd. 
Hear my heart beat loud. 
You have repaired the damage. 
Let's take advantage of the time placed in front of us.

On the outside looking in

Verse 1:
Why does every thought come to this
Now it’s the innocence that I miss 
Change is all I ever see
I can’t leave this up to me

Chorus:
We all wanna be
On the outside looking in
Doin everything we can
To be the better man

Verse 2:
Always trying to take the power
Climbin to the tallest tower
But in the end it comes to nothing
Why can’t I hold on to something

Chorus:
We all wanna be
On the outside looking in
Doin everything we can
To be the better man


Verse 3:
Failures creating such anger inside
The hatred of God has become far too wide
The inner flesh is eating the best of me
But thankfully God has woke me up to see

Chorus:
We all wanna be
On the outside looking in
Doin everything we can
To be the better man

Verse 4:
Before everything’s too late
I’m gonna let God decide my fate
Even though I’m just a sinful man
By the grace of God I’m a part of a greater plan

Chorus:
We all wanna be
On the outside looking in
Doin everything we can
To be the better man

That Old Yet Rarely Used Path

Many times I’ve longed to give up when tribulations did corrupt my life when I was 
young
But then you told me I would be unworthy of your only son

So from that day on I traveled along that old yet rarely used path
And I was surprised to see that for centuries, people started out here then 
suddenly turned back

And by and by I began to understand why they left this dark and perilous road
For what lies ahead, more problems more dread, was only for God to know
Yes the path is scary but I need not tarry, for I desire to see what’s in store for me
And as I look about, I see the many mouths of the wolves snapping at my feet
It was a horrific sound, but I stood my ground just as Jesus told me I should
They gnashed their teeth and their eyes burned holes through me, yet they dared 
not move an inch from where they stood
It didn’t dawn on me what held fast their feet until I felt the presence of his 
comforting rod
And before I was overcome with fear, He whispered in my ear saying I am your 
protection and your Lord your God


And on and on as I travel along that old yet rarely used path
Many years the Devil hath preyed on my fears and tempted me to turn around and 
go back

He told me how silly I was to fall so many times and still haven’t had enough
And I said take thee leave for I know that surely God only count those times I got 
up
I had passed many tests with complaints from the flesh, which time and time I 
had to abate
But I had made a vow and no matter how or what I had to do, that promise I will 
not break
I told you Lord that I will give of me wholeheartedly and accept my persecution for 
your name’s sake
And though at times I may cry my steadfast spirit will not die as long as I know 
you’re worth the wait
And while I wait for that day I’ll offer up my praise just as the trees and the 
mountains do
And with your help I will forsake myself to take up my cross to follow you
And I will continue your way until I hear you say that I am to be no more	
For I’ve pleased the Lord’s son for having done what I was indeed brought here 
for
Until you appear and take up your dear ones to the King’s dwelling place
I’ll tell those with ears to repent for the judgment is near as I ponder when I will 
see your face


And on and on I will continue to travel along that old yet rarely used path
And though I may not know where my feet are to go, as long as you’re leading 
me, I’ll never turn back

Come Food Stamp Day

I know that it is essential
To fast as we pray
It has happen for centuries
It's fashionable that way
But, there is one thing that
I have to say........
                -
As I pray each day of the week
My soul is somber
I'm meek and I'm weak
But the good Lord know's
I need something to eat
                  -
I know that it is essential
To do this this way
But I seem to get sleeker 
      Every day
                   -
There are so many reasons'
Why I should pray
But, it is hard to pray come's
Food Stamp Day
Fore that is the day
That i can get something to eat
A loaf of bread and maybe some meat
Their are so many thing's
That I want to eat
But to be true to my religion
I must make the retreat
                    -
I could sure use a
Piece of pizza pizza
Or maybe some Chicken fi' lay
I know that I need at least something
To get me threw the day

The Precious One

Abort is not the key
It will have you feeling less
Nothing but pain and regrets
Abort is not the key
She or He is apart of you
Forget the other half
As they get older you will have the last laugh
Children bring nothing but blessings if you do right by them
Forget him
You will succeed
It's your body and your seed
Abort is not the key

EYE Don't See -Part 3-

My eyes
Witness your departure
My eyes
Are dripping with hopelessness…
My eyes start to blur…
Melancholy put me under pressure…
Is there a cure to my disease? 

You don’t see
The shards of hope that once brought us back together
Just let me search for safety
I’m strong enough to realize that I’m no longer
The weakest prey out there…

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me whimpering like a distraught puppy left on the train tracks?

I’m close to my demise…save me and take me home

Nourish me…and be my beloved friend

Will this friendship last forever?

Hopefully it has no end

Will this cheerful moment help us get along with each other?

Because of you…I feel the need to run 
I keep an eye on you – I worry that you’ll hurt yourself again
Because of you…My freedom is nearly gone
I don’t wanna be caught off guard again
Because of you…EYE can’t picture a solution for our vexing dilemma 
Because of you…eye can’t focus on my long-term goal 

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you sense that I’m giving in to failure? 
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…I can’t endure 
The hardships that you place upon me…
Could you boost up my confidence to overcome 
My atrocious anxiety? 

I’m just waiting for some sun
To keep me in good hands…
To strengthen me with perseverance …
I’m just waiting until His son
Leads the world outtah Egypt and reveals to us…
His radiance…His dazzling Kingdom – 
Vibrant with glee

Your undying sympathy dawns upon us
I’m overflowing with indescribable joy  
You’re a candle in the night…
We meet eye to eye…
What a sight…what a precious sight

A Bite of Torah

In still serene
	He waits -
To hear a joyous melody
	Of words -
Where union waits
	Between white spaces -
As each draws in their breath.
To lift black letters off the page
	And into Now -
A delicious feast of Torah,
	Eating aleph’s and bet’s  -
	With a side of cheesecake.

Worlds Apart

Worlds Apart…

The words are in my head, but I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know where to start, we’re worlds apart…

So many years of love between us
So many days of joy we’ve shared
So many countless nights of passion
And now we feel the wear and tear
Can’t see through the wall between us
Can’t live through the endless fight
Can’t survive the pain or pressure
Close our eyes to the blinding light

The words are in my head, but still I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know where to start, because we’re worlds apart…

Seen through your eyes or through mine
I believe the picture looks the same
The truth is all wrapped up in lies
And neither of us can hide the shame
Not one of us better than the other
We both can read between the lines
With each day it grows much clearer
We both have seen the warning signs

The words are all within my head, but some things I just won’t say
And I don’t know where to start, we are worlds apart…

Another night of useless struggle 
As you now dream asleep at rest
And tomorrow come the morning
I will arise to another breath
And as another day of endless longing 
Begins to come alive in me
Still another part now weeping
Will fail to open its eyes and see

The words are all within my head, but I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know where to start, we are worlds apart…

If I'm Wrong

Every day
Every day’s the same
Every night
Every night’s another fight
You cast your hateful stares
While your heart’s no longer there

So go ahead and hate me
Kill me for what I believe
You’ll see what you wanna see
You’ll be who you wanna be 

And even if in the end I’m wrong
And I’ll never sing another song
I knew I never wanted to live for nothing
In the end at least I stood for something

So cast your stone
Capture this living throne
I see money’s in your eyes
While you deceive with your lies

So go ahead and hate me
Kill me for what I believe
You’ll see what you wanna see
You’ll be who you wanna be

When everything
Turns upside down
When everyone
Threatens to take your crown
Inside your heart turns cold
Because you were never bold

So go ahead and hate me
Kill me for what I believe
You’ll see what you wanna see
You’ll be who you wanna be

The coward seeks pleasure
While the brave seeks forever
You’ll grasp onto your crown
While your sins bury you in the ground

So go ahead and hate me
Kill me for what I believe
You’ll see what you wanna see
You’ll be who you wanna be

And even if in the end I’m wrong
And I’ll never sing another song
I knew I never wanted to live for nothing
In the end at least I stood for something

Wound of Love

Today, alone, and near despair,
My heart nigh crushed by this world's cares,
I stumbled, blinded by hot tears,
Through bitter valleys, dark with fear,
My tortured mind the while was wrung
By memories of this I'd done.
Or said, or thought in careless haste,
Of days and years all gone to waste.
An arrow, sharp, burned in my breast;
I strove to thrust it from my chest.
To stone it clung like Arthur's sword
Relinquished only to its lord,

I thought not how my life to spare:
If God would only hear my prayer
And grant me absolution, free.
If He would simply hear my plea.
I sought and found the empty room
I'd shared with Christ; a faint perfume
Still lingered. Strange it seemed, and yet,
Through all the years, did I forget
The Presence and the peace found here?
Earth has no equal anywhere.
The room was dark with curtains drawn;
There was no fire to keep it warm.

My weary vision came to rest
Upon a heap of metal pressed
Into a corner, dark and dank;
When comprehended, my heart sank.
The terror of the truth revealed!
A holy horror 'round me pealed;
Each tone tolled forth a truth sublime
To prove me guilty of my crime.
Beneath the dust of days gone by
In rags and rust I'd let it lie,
My Christian armor. Now I faced
The verdict at the judgment place.

The burning in my heart increased;
The yearning would not find release
Till as I looked into the eyes
Of Him my soul so long defied,
Awaiting sentence, just reward,
I met the mercy of my Lord.
The arrow burning in my heart--
From God's own quiver came its art;
'T was evidence most dear, divine,
That I am His and He is mine.
Not earth , not hell, nor Heav'n above
Could separate me from such love.

I'd never known a wound so kind,
And love like His I could not find
Along the byways I had trod:
It's in the Kingdom of our God.
There all are warriors, bold and brave;
There all must give just as He gave.
I knelt, His knight, with armor on,
The tears were mended, rust was gone.
"I ask one favor as I go
To serve Thee, Lord; Thy love to show:
Ah, never from my breast, I pray,
Take this Thy would of love away.

Based on Ephesians 6:10-18

The Tomb Was Empty

When Joseph had taken Jesus' body,
To his own new tomb where it was laid.
He sealed the door of the sepulchre,
By a great chiseled stone it was stayed.

Then there was Mary and the other,
Sitting over against the sepulchre door.
Not knowing of the events to happen,
Or what for them, God's plan, had in store.

To Pilate came Chief Priest's and Pharisees,
Following the preparation day.
Saying sir, the deceiver, while yet alive,
"After three days I will rise again" He did say.

Command therefore the tomb be sealed,
Lest by night, Disciples steal Him away.
Then Pilate said go, set ye there a watch,
It was Sabbaths end, and the weeks first day.

Then came the two Mary's the sepulchre to see,
And behold an earthquake came, full blown.
Descending from Heaven an Angel did appear,
Rolling from the sepulchre door the stone.

His look was as lightening, and raiment as snow,
With great fear the keepers were shaken.
To the Mary's was said, "this Jesus ye seek,
Has risen, His disciples have not taken".

The Angel said come, see the place He lay,
Finding naught, but His grave clothes.
He goeth into Galilee where you shall see,
Go tell His disciples that He arose.


Taken from Matthew 27/28

Over and Beyond

I stand here, Dead in the dark, I try not to shed a tear, Why'd it have to be so far? I stand here, Thinking of the future, Thinking of fear, Does it have a cure? I stand here, Thinking of how to succeed, With obstacles at the end of each peer, Wanting to show I am not another bead, On another necklace, Am I dirt to be stepped on? I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. I walk here, Through vines of life, It's getting near, Will I be intertwined? I walk here, Looking for a light, Waiting for the fog to clear, Will I shine bright? I walk here, Showing the truth, Ready to steer, Will my mood still be blue? I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. I will run, Into his arms, Not shedding blood, Into his care. I will run, Off that cuddled peer, Showing my love, Showing no fear. I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. So don't try to stop me, I will only push pass, Through those trees, Through the cold, damp grass. I will succeed. I will succeed. I will succeed. I will succeed. Don't stop me.

Weep and a Moan

Watching the sequence of sound coming out of your mouth...
But the screaming is too loud.
I can speak,
But my brain doesn't want to.

I closed the door.
Silence called for me.
Should I cry or should I run after her?

What have I done to you?
but love you uncontrollably.

Shes then left speechless.
It looks like shes out of breath,
but really I broke her.

She was fragile.
So innocent.

Run, Just run.
A gun raised..
up to her mouth.
And a taint on her heart.

I Have You

If leaves should fall from the evergreens
If time just stopped, and the sun rose dark and blue.
If all life ended, and the earth stopped turnin 'round
Even facing the end I'll still have you.

When I get married on that warm summers day,
When my baby is born, sometime next May.
Even if it's not, you that I married.
Even if you're not, my baby's daddy,
Well, I'll live gladly. I still have you

When bad times come, and all seems lost
When I'm flying high, my wings spread wide.
When I'm lost and/or in danger,
When I'm smiling or in anger,
It doesn't matter. You're there to help me through.
You're always there to see me through.

If there comes a day,
Where you walk away.
Should there come a time where I am left behind.
Even though you would have gone, don't expect a change.
I'll be waiting for the day when you come back my way.

If you walk up to me, and call me baby.
If you come up to me, and say we're besties.
If you come up to me, and dont say anything.
I'll take your hand, and we'll get through.

If ever there comes a time
When life's too much, there's no peace of mind.
When you're cold and feel alone,
When you dont know what it is to be home.
Dont be afraid, know your hands in mine.
Dont be afraid, you have me by your side

Even if leaves fall, from the evergreens.
If you walk away, never to be seen.
Even if you're not, the one I marry,
Just know I'm happy, that I have you.
And dont forget, you have me too.

We'll have each other, to help get through.

What If Tomorrow Never Comes

I recall now the days when forever seemed but a short time The visits to the hospital, brought sad images to your mind She lay on a bed, cords all around her, no hair upon her head The cancer drove us crazy with worry tears and fright She was only a baby, I didn't get the chance to say goodbye Farewell until we meet again where you'll be waiting... waiting for tomorrow to come again. What if tomorrow never comes? How will I face the rising sun, when the moon is the only thing I can see? I need her here with me... The only loss I've ever known The only time that I've experienced this kind of sorrow... So what if tomorrow never comes? What if tomorrow never comes. And now I lie here thinking it through, memories flash through my head, memories of you Moments of a bittersweet time Reminiscing the days when you were mine The days when you were alive The tears come back to my eyes I feel the need to cry but nothing slides out I need to scream and shout, My emotions pour out as one, silently So what if tomorrow never comes? Reality in death is so hard to accept, I need my tomorrow to come... What if it never does? What if tomorrow never comes? How will I face the rising sun, when the moon is the only thing I can see? I need her here with me... The only loss I've ever known The only time that I've experienced this kind of sorrow... So what if tomorrow never comes? What if tomorrow never comes. Will tomorrow ever come? I just want to be awake when the moon becomes the sun I'm waiting here for you, in the darkness of the night. I wait still for you, forever the images will haunt my mind Tomorrow will come I'll soon be alright Tomorrow will come... Tomorrow has come... I can now see the sun.

In my soul

You are so alive in my soul, angel,
You are warming up my heart.
When you're far away
You are always closer than anyone beside.

They may never know the story,
How much we hide inside.
Sometimes people are so blind to see
That real love is worth to fight.

And maybe both of us are living
In the darkness of this world, and
We are wrapped in wrongness but
Still we hold on through these days
Believing our love will save us.
Somehow.

The Watcher

Why have you left us?
You used to care so much 
That you camped out 
On the moon,
Hoping to save us
From our inevitable conclusion.
We thought you couldn’t save us,
But that didn’t stop you.
Did you get tired 
Of putting the pieces back together
Just to watch them crash back down? 
You still had hope when
We abandoned it;
Now you abandoned us.
We are calling,
We are screaming,
We need you.
Can you hear us?
Lace up your boots
Fill your tank with oxygen
And take your place among the stars,
Your soul shining brighter 
than all of them.
You are the Watcher
And it’s up to you
To save us all.

Silent Night Sky

Oh how can one capture 
Your beauty on paper
Without you evaporating
Off as it is your nature

The stars are your jewels
The moon is your crest
Everyone drools
As if blessed

Your silence is serenity
That whisper to my thoughts
An overwhelming beauty
That ties my stomach up in knots

How humble I am sound
A beauty incomparable
With a radiance so profound
Your absence is unbearable

Tom's Angels

Not all guardian angels have wings
To hover in a stone washed sky.
Sometimes they suddenly enter your life
And may cause you to question why?

Sometimes it may have been a stranger
Whom God thought you needed to know.
Just a seed that you'd be undeserving of
From which friendship and love will grow.

Angels that will induce Godly thoughts
And wrest from your soul, your best.
Perhaps this is just why God sends them
To assist you through another life test.

      caked up with cry

Daddy ain't comin' home

Draconian I

[The Cypress Is In Bloom]
The cypress is in bloom
I see the evil, the efflorescence of decadent doom
Eloigning, with thy clandestines of the Dead September's reign
My belovéd Penelope, abscond from the coven so deep, the glades of misery
We must face her in the grove, for arcany, the path we must take
She's in my mind, vaporously,
Lauding with my, dangers and fears
Lie, with ephermelcy's broken truths
Leading me go Cypress, Marigold
Immortally, willows, forevermore
Forevermore

[To Question; To Know]
My argentine silence, your only condonicy 
Ends with such eath
The Mockingbird in me--died
Resting in one ounce, an abundance of shame
With an infinity of joy
Exiled, by the ones, who give all, names
My breath starves for only more
The façade, the veil, the austerity dims with Aquarianlore 
She falls to her knees, why for?
Celandine she will be
Celandine is she

[Bead]
The lair within, free from their causalities of their sins
Shadowy primroses begin to grow, the season will never end
In there I dream to be like you, violet blue, White Flower of Lisieux,
La Fleur Blanche du Lisieux,
So Celandine are you
Celandine are you

[Draconian]
Draconian--Reach for the shadows within
Draconian--Break from The Fallen's Sin
Draconian--Their Empirical lies, only die
Draconian--Reach The Shadows Within

A Million Things

A Million Things

Then senseless arrives
Worthless deprives 
Drama provides; but still we find a way

Into The Blue

A place where I can go to let down my hair
Become that of a still smooth sleeping bear
Gone with the wind is my worries and cares
Into beautiful eyes, where mine can stare

As each grain of sand slips through my hand
I recall each time that I held your hand
The way you made me feel like a man
This is the place where I can escape,
From Lifes binding plans

Fighter

I’ve been to the brink of utter destruction
Watched my dreams sink down to desolation
The hole in my soul is screaming only what I know
That I gave up a long time ago
I’m sorry I didn’t rise to the challenge
I just laid to waste, broken and damaged
Truth is I’ve been feeling this all along
This nagging in my heart that something is wrong
As time passes on I’m losing myself
But this broken heart won’t mend itself
Passing through, it’s the pain I feel
Reminding me that love is real
It’s that tiny spark that ignites a fire
That spreads throughout and turns me into a fighter
So when the storm rages on
And the pain has only begun
And if change never comes
I know I’ll be standing here when it’s all said and done

A House and A Home

A home, where love was whelming
Unconditionly forgiving
It took care of everything
And was always welcoming

A house, that has been through the wars
Blood on the floors, walls covered in sores
Curtains torn, bolted down doors
An Unsteady fondation was born

A house, where certainty did not lie
THere was joy that went a awry
Confused tears were cried
The charm had died inside

A house, that began to rebuild
Where Passion and faith were once killed
The  focus of hope was filled
Needed boundries were instilled

A home, where three is more than four
 Slowly sweeping the blood stained floors
Hope is healing the walls open sores
Cracking open the reluctant doors

The book of my soul

“The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof but canst 
not tell whence it cometh and whither it goeth.” John ch 3. vs 8.

In a plain bound book
I tattoo white paper in blue
Then wrap myself in this shaman’s cloak
To fly with the eagle to a sky renewed.

I sing words salvaged from the press
In the intervals of Te Deum,
Stolen from its church,
Sung so only its melancholy shines.

Pärt turned to church and tradition
Amidst a century of horror,
And I turn to these conjured spirits
In a world polluted by podcast trash.

Inwardly, I turn – not without question.
The simplest words are sewn with elaborate doubt.
But into the image of inwardness
I dive deeper, and there find reasons to go on.

In the mandalas, strange mazes, of this book
I encircle, tame, and then hold fast
The sound of the blowing wind.

Hope Through Life

I can't always tell you what I see,
Or what you'll have in this life.
But honey please believe me,
I'm striving to show you somehow. 

I'm begging Forever to hold you,
And I'm pleading time to stand still.
And if all the world needs to disappear,
Then all will be done by my will.

I've seen Heaven and Hell join forces.
I've wished on the stars in your eyes.
If ever I think that I've lost sight,
Well you're there to help guide back my mind.

And I can't fight the tears that keep coming
When I fall through the darkness in light.
And when I'm lost in lines and verses,
You know I'll find hope through life.

I can't always tell you tomorrow,
But there's a reason that I'm here tonight.
I'm not one for superstition; I keep looking for truth in this life,
But still I wish on the stars in your eyes.

And I can't fight the tears that keep coming
When I fall through the darkness in light.
And when I'm lost in lines and verses,
You know I'll find hope through life.
Yeah you know I'll find hope through life.
Yes I know that I'll find hope through life.

Christmas time is almost here (Revised 2nd Version)

It’s at that special time of year
The feeling of love fills the air
Celebration festive lights and good cheer
Santa Clause ringing bells and reindeer

Turkey Dinners and vegetable beef stew
apple pies and sweet potatoes too.
Children laughing in delight
A tree that represents the life

Christmas time is almost here
At Mid-night tonight magic holds the world near
Christmas time is almost here
' round the world an-tic-i-pation in the atmosphere

reflection of the moon as a guiding light
A star that stands proud through the night
A gentle flurry covers Streets white
Listen closely angles singing ‘bout JC tonight

On the twenty fifth of December
It’s a birthday to remember
Bow your heads honor and reflect
Forgiveness and humility lead to thanks and respect

With a simple message believe in me 
Open your hearts to be free
Release the fear and doubt
In the name of the king Merry Christmas

Christmas time is almost here
At Mid-night tonight magic holds the world near
Christmas time is almost here
Around the world anticipation in the atmosphere

Recovery

I’m still recovering from the aftershocks of your love
Yu lifted me higher than the clouds above
The world is a scary ride
At least His angels are on our side
As long as we come along with them side by side

I won’t disappoint you
I’ll try my best to cheer you on  
You are as beautiful and keen like the Sun, shining day by day
Darling, I will never desert you no matter what troubles come our way
We’re on this expedition together forever – we can survive the run

You are the vibrant moon, beaming bright,
Dismissing the misfortunate and chilling night 
Bring it on, fascinating eagle, spread out your wings and fly so high
Keep on pressing on until you and I reach our haven
Chase away the cynical, gloomy raven

I won’t let you down any more
I’ll try my best to help you gleefully soar
You are as beautiful and dazzling like the Sun, shining in my direction
Darling, I will never desert you no matter what we face in this tricky expedition  
We’re on this adventure together as a team– we can survive the run

I won’t give up on you…so bear with me for a while longer
There will be difficult circumstances coming our way
Don’t be weeping in dismay
Wait for a blessed, delightful day

I won’t make you frown…you make my world go round
I’ll try with all of my might not to slip and fall on the ground  
You are as striking and splendid like the Sun, shining day by day
Darling, I will never push you out of the way, for I feel like you should stay
We’re partners as long as we live and be safe – we will be done

I’m still arriving undone by your outlandish nature
You are the cruel gravity that makes me feel so unsure
The world is a dangerous zone
At the moment, I’m left all alone

I won’t fail you…

I hope you won't fail me...

I'm here for you!

You're as strong and elegant like the Sun, kindling joy
Darling, I will never leave you alone, no matter what we face in this strange land!
We’re sticking together even in death– 
We’re recovering from being thrown about like a toy 

I’m still resisting the temptation to blow up on you like a bomb
But, you are so sensitive and you can’t help acting so dense, like some 
The World of Woe is meeting its conclusion...and I've become numb
Cold and unbreakable like a boulder
Maybe I need to relax on a shoulder
Could you pray with me for full recovery?
I'll pray for comfort and peace to replace misery

Today, the sky is baby blue for me and you…

Just like your eyes, they twinkle…it’s too real to be true

I’m still recovering from losing you!

There is something in everything

                   
 
                     In the multitude of counsellors there is life,
             Running away implies stabbing yourself with your knife.

                    I’m inside a cyclone, you think I should run?
             You even went on to tag my stagnancy as dumbness,
            I’m not a fool you know. Positioned myself in its centre
            For I know that in the eye of a cyclone there’s calmness.
          You feel I’m off-guard when I actually feel like I’m in a venter.
        My birth canal is in the vertical, where I’m not impaired of my view
       I fix mine eyes to the heavens where I know there’s my breakthrough.



          In the midst   of drunkards there’s   sure a fog of immature diction.
            Engaging means emigrating from the principle of lingual timing.
            Words are powerful entities, they can unveil people’s identities.
            When your mind is pixilated, the words you speak can intoxicate
            Your persistent entity, your individuality. Even if it may be a while
              There’s just some hostility about it and what if it compiles
             In the long run, leaving your choice of words forever numb?
 


                  In a bad company is a formed aura of non-believe,
            There’s a rapid leakage of faith with slim chance of retrieve.
            The Bible is on point, “bad company corrupts good character”
                   It is said that character is the you that exists 
             When all are gone and you have only you in your midst.
      Now think, external injections are depriving your character cells nutrients.
         The torture is aimed at you, once activated there is severe suffering.
    But, you'll have to bear the yoke alone when your God's desired character
                                   Starts to haunt you!

                 There's fullness of joy in the presence of the Lord
             And for those who really seek it, life is never really odd.

A little Blue Dress

An evening on the shore
Where two people were made one
But became something more
The night of fun had begun
But there was more instore
A little blue dress had won
her smile had left mine floored
A sweet laugh that tied my tounge
Eyes that let my mind soar but
Before I could take a breath,
 my heart had plunged
deep into a sea of uncertanty
I was Wrapped up in a dream, 
Relations seemed to be something I had yet to feel in a while
A distance in between not emotions but miles
Years of built up blockades eroding at a rapid rate
Resesitating my ability to trust another mate
Her words that seemed strong as oak had me hanging on by a rope
Lured me in with a sweet false hope
So I poured my heart and her response was to choke
Pokin at the fact that Im the one who has to cope
Little did she know it was more than my heart that just broke
Now Ive lost it, trying to proccess these lies are making me naceous
Next time be more cautious my mother said, 
Its becoming a grind to deal with these losses again
And even though I feel as If I fell apart and landed flat on my face
God showed me I hit the ball out of the park and now were winning the race

Pass you by

You say nothing is fair
You say cross me if you dare
You wonder why 
Never letting those times pass you by

Your anger builds up inside
Hating everyone who has lied
Revenge is what you seek
Inside it makes you weak


You say nothing is fair
You say cross me if you dare
You wonder why
Never letting those times pass you by

Your mistakes kill you inside
You know how you lied
Blamin everyone you can
So you look like a better man
Don’t you see hell is breaking open
And you’ve got nothing to put your hope in

You’re such a two headed fool
Using people as your tool
Masking up what you are
Your innocence is just too far

You say nothing is fair
You say cross me if you dare
You wonder why
Never letting those times pass you by

You Are Beautiful

The Sun and stars shine to adore
Oceans reverberate ashore,
shrubs and trees bow in praise galore,
for you are Most beautiful.

Mortal men can never deny
Angels above testify,
heaven in awe roars to reply
that you are Most Beautiful.

Raindrop and Rainbow assure us,
moonlight and sunlight show us,
thunderstorm join in the chorus
that you are Most beautiful. 

God is beautiful,
faithful and most wonderful,
His works and words are so 
blissful,
Our God is Most beautiful.

Where Melancholy Mingles

I suppose
there’s always good reason
to cry
sadness never has a tough time making friends
ominously,
this dark acquaintance often approaches 
lending water for eyes
to cry

I suppose
there's never better time than now 
to moan
grunting and moaning are long lost relatives
miserably, 
feeding off each other 
dragging stragglers along for the ride
to moan 


I suppose
anxiety needs a moment in the sun 
to worry
flipping, tossing, in a cerebral ceremony
fidgety
anxiously twitching 
as everyone quickly moves
to worry

I suppose 
there's no harm in a little dishonesty
to lie
while thieves join the party
deceptively
a terrible tandem 
of dirty deeds and tendencies
to lie

I suppose
everyone has the ability  
to struggle 
with adversity, where melancholy mingles
blatantly
crying, grunting, and moaning
anxiety moves in permanently
to struggle

 
and I suppose,
there's a heavy dose of negativity 
to digest 
mixed with stress
continually
it may lead to one hell of a 
nasty mess
to ingest

The soft whisper

Looking at me

Deep in me I feel a soft whisper
It seems to be beckoning me
I glimpse it, but it don’t ever linger
It just gives me these glimpses endlessly
Yet always I know that it be with me
I have known it since that time eternity
And I know I’ll keep on looking
Forever, and forever
For that sweet little whisper of me

There is nothing can be said about it
Every explanation will be wrong
Cause words they have no power to convey it
Though often it is felt within a song
I know that I’ll be doing it forever
I’ll always be looking at me
I don’t need to ask the questions
Just have to look, that’s all
Keep asking ‘Am I her so endlessly.

I’m looking, I’m looking, hey, I’m looking
There is no way to stop this carry on
It seems that I’ll be looking
Looking, looking, looking
It’s the only way to bid the fear ‘be gone!’

I swear to you I cannot understand it
And yet this fact don’t bother me at all
I just keep looking like a mad man
I don’t care If, I’m wise or just a fool
‘Am I here, am I here’ I keep on saying
And always with this question I will be
I’m going to look, and look, and keep looking
Every day you’ll find me looking at me.

Another dedication to John Sherman..

Turnstile

At death, stood one, at a turnstile,
Whether each, facing judgment, would pay.
There, no accord for entry, was made worthwhile,
Nor was there bestowed a ready day.

For the tree that had fallen south or north,
In that direction, endlessly, remained the same.
Only the Godly, advanced henceforth,
Those who honored and glorified God's name.

Picture perfect

Verse: 
Nothing is going according to plan
I’m just trying to find out who I am
It’s feeling like everything I do
Is taking me further from you

Chorus: 
I realize this isn’t picture perfect
I’m just doin the best that I can
I know this isn’t picture perfect 
It’s never going as I planned
Wishing this was picture perfect
But I know I need to trust in you

Verse:
They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
But im just wondering if ill be able to hold on any longer
I know I can’t do this on my own
Now Im putting my trust in God alone



Chorus: 
I realize this isn’t picture perfect
I’m just doin the best that I can
I know this isn’t picture perfect 
It’s never going as I planned
Wishing this was picture perfect
But I know I need to trust in you

Verse:
Even when fears of failure come
And I feel like they have won
I need to realize this isn’t my plan
And I need to step up and be a man

Chorus: 
I realize this isn’t picture perfect
I’m just doin the best that I can
I know this isn’t picture perfect 
It’s never going as I planned
Wishing this was picture perfect
But I know I need to trust in you

Waves of Time

I'll meet you by the sunset
If you wait for me by the sea
Out of all this world's wonders, there is, only you and me
And as my madness wanders, the depths and darkness of my mind
I'm looking for a way out
A way that you can help me find

And as the wind comes soaring down the mountains to the sea
I know the oceans roaring means, you're coming back to me
And yes it may take me awhile, but one day I'll call you mine
We'll stand here in the sand together, and watch the waves of time

At first it all comes easy
The rest will come with time
But I know it will be worth it, the day, that I can call you mine
I still don't understand why it is you hold me dear
But then again all that matters is, how I feel when you are near

And as the wind comes soaring down the mountains to the sea
Well I know the oceans roaring means, you're coming back to me
And yes it may take me awhile, but one day I'll call you mine
We'll stand here in the sand together and watch the waves of time

Too many long years later
We're walking down that shore
Why can't things be as easy as they once were before
But as I look into your eyes, our smiles sing the rest
We fall down to the sand together, our love has passed the test

And as the wind comes soaring down, the mountains to the sea
I know the oceans roaring means, you're staying here with me.
And baby I know it took me awhile, but you're here now, and you're mine.
We'll lay here in the sand together, and watch the waves of time.
Yes we'll lay here in the sand together until the end of time.

Exist in Dreams

A dream that dances in waves, and mirrors all you do
So you dance, and hope that some day the song will come from you
This dream is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
The song is picking up speed, so it’s follow or fail alone

A flame that flickers in sync with the shadows by your side
The rain puts out the light, and causes you to hide
This nightmare is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
But this song still hasn’t stopped, and so you dance alone

You cherish sand on the banks of a path winding through a storm
This desert trail is all that you see; too blinding to look beyond
This path is all that exists, and the only way to go
Holding close the sand as you sing, just so you’re not alone

The sand is part of the storm that makes you close your eyes
But now the wind starts to slow, and the scenery makes you cry
This life is all that exists, and the only way to go
The sand falls through your hands, and you carry on alone

A love that blooms into being beneath the darkest skies
Is a life that will venture out despite the lonely nights
So scared, but so unafraid to find what you need to be
Despite the fear that prevails, and tells you what to see

The flames steady and still, and a shadow kneeling down
The rain cleansing your heart as all your fears drown
The sand creating a path, and shielding you from pain
And now, with the wind at your back, you remember why you came

To dream a light shining out for all the world to see
To be more than you think, and beyond all that will be
To create a desire to be the creators of our dreams
To become the mirror of self, and reflect our unity

Song Of An Ancient Poet

I live in bliss, Ising with thee
In faith and hope I sing and pray
When day comes with dew on the lea
In faith and hope I sing and pray

Oft in prayers I lift my palms
In winter`s cold or summer`s heat
Under shades I lift my voice in psalms
At home and on the open street

To the graveside dirge voices lend
O the cadence itself is life
On which my hollow heart must mend
Dreary notes like cuts of a knife

The soft wind blow a cottage hymn
A thicket bird for twilight tweet
Where once all was quiet  and grim
They seem to me a splendid treat

My prime is done and gone with age
December`s end quickens no sigh
Nor baneful tears to quench her rage
My path is bliss `tis not a lie

The husking darkness clouds my sight
A blanket doom waits not for me
I sleep but shall wake to find light
Break the mountain waves of the sea

Tears of Regret

Oh God 
Where the hell am I
This can’t be it
I can’t be dead
I haven’t even started to live

These thoughts are
So full of regret
Never shaking the hell
At the end of a cigarette

Again
I find myself on my knees
Ashamed and naked
Begging you please
I’m left with nothing to give
If only I knew how to truly live
Sin had always got the best of me
The light I could never see

Woe is me
Good is what I’ll never be
You’re never really dead and gone
You’re just left to sing the saddest songs
The wealth and the fame
Is all just the sickest game
Such a tempting kiss
Leaving you in the Devil’s bliss

 Again
I find myself on my knees
Ashamed and naked
Begging you please
I’m left with nothing to give
If only I knew how to truly live
Sin had always got the best of me
The light I could never see

I stare to the heavens
From the bottom of the stair well
Hell’s reminding me
Of how far I’ve fell
I scream and I cry
As I realized I’ve died
I can’t look above
To the eyes of God
This damning sin is just too great
Making me realize salvation’s too late
This body burns
As I’ve realized what I’ve learned

Again
I find myself on my knees
Ashamed and naked
Begging you please
I’m left with nothing to give
If only I knew how to truly live
Sin had always got the best of me
The light I could never see

If I could do it all again
You can bet I’d praise God till the end
Cause He is the meaning of life
He’s worth every fight
I’d scream for the world to hear
God will heal every tear
Cause no money or fame
No drug or lust
Will heal you from what you’ve lost
Everyone carries a broken heart
God can be your brand new start

Oh God
Where the hell am I
This can’t be it
I can’t be dead
I haven’t even started to live

Hymn of Reconciliation.

There in the shambles beneath my feet
All broken the laws that sanctified me ...
There in the shadows of slinking defeat
My soul cast down and racked in misery

But lo' for the throne of mercy's memory
A man did leave the comfort zone of peace
To come to the mangled manger of history
And give a wretched sinner truth's release.
 
A rebel's dream fragmented, and just like clay
The potter stooped down to mould again
Unpotted I was only fitted to be tossed away
The hands that made me balmed my pain.

O could God of grace and grand giver of glory
You kneel again, not to mould my shards, nay,
But from battered, broken flesh bring victory
And I shall from sin relinquished soon fly away.

Splintered ego mended, nail wounds blended
In the gospel praise my grateful heart pours
That for my guiltiness such mercy was intended
O you are my Christ, Savior my heart adores

Praise God

If it's not one thing then it's another.
I'm either fighting with my dad or hearing screams from my mother.
My girlfriend doesn't trust me. I can't pay for therapy.
I can't do this all alone. I get down on my knees.
I ask the lord for forgiveness, right before I begin.
Although he is a forgiving God, how could he look upon sin?
Prayer is so simple even a child can start.
It's not all imagination, your faith must come from the heart.
It's all so real, the thrill you feel, the chill that's going through you.
You no longer fear it, the holy spirit starts showing and glowing, it's true.
Who knew that you, that tough guy? The one that wouldn't believe?
Then why are you always calling out for him when your unable to achieve?
He's always there to help us. Stand out and give it a try.
The Closer you get to God you'll see this isn't a lie.
Thank you, Jesus! Praise Jesus! Halliugha! Oh Lord!
I can never lose a battle using you as a sword!
Life here is too short, yesterday is already gone.
Knowing where you'll spend eternity will help keep you moving on.
Praise God!

Is

Is my breath
upon your list

Is my thought
thoughts I’ve made for you

Is the desire
eternal flame burning in me

Is the touch
forlorn hope, lament for the beauty

Is the lull
footloose and fancy – free lies in the garden

Is the wholeness
ultimate high, lay it up in lavender.

KILL FOR YOU

KILL FOR YOU…

WORDS LIKE POISON ARROWS 
THAT ARE PIERCING RIGHT THROUGH YOU
INTENDING TO BREAK YOUR SPIRIT 
AND DRAIN THE LIFEBLOOD RIGHT FROM YOU
IN YOUR MIND YOU SEE THE TRUTH BUT 
IN YOUR HEART YOU’VE LOST THE WILL
BUT IN MY MIND I FEEL A RAGE COME ALIVE
AND IN MY HEART I KNOW I WILL, I WOULD

KILL FOR YOU, CRUSH THE LIFE FROM WITHIN
KILL FOR YOU, WITHOUT REGARD FOR THE SIN
KILL FOR YOU, PUT AN END TO A PHYSICAL LIFE, AND I WILL
DIE FOR YOU, IF IT WOULD HELP YOU THROUGH THIS NIGHT

HEARTLESS IN HIS VERBAL ATTACK
JUST BECAUSE HE THINKS HE CAN
WITH NO RESPECT FOR A WOMAN, OR SELF
THE SIGN OF A WEAKENED MAN
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, YOU ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS
AND BELIEVE IN ME, AS HARD AS THAT MAY SOMETIMES SEEM TO BE

I WOULD KILL FOR YOU, CRUSH THE LIFE FROM WITHIN
KILL FOR YOU, WITHOUT REGARD FOR THE SIN
KILL FOR YOU, PUT AN END TO A PHYSICAL LIFE, I WILL
DIE FOR YOU, IF IT WOULD HELP YOU THROUGH THIS NIGHT

…A REMINDER WILL BE SENT HIS WAY
SO HE KNOWS EVERYONE WILL KNOW…
AND HIS OWN WORDS WILL BE THE DEATH OF HIM
WHEN NO ONE LOOKS AT HIM THE SAME AGAIN
    “UNGRATEFUL SON OF A *****
    WHAT A WASTE YOU ARE
    JUST ANOTHER PILE OF MANKINDS SHIT
    IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE”

The Journey Home

Everything around me just doesn’t feel real
Nobody can understand how I really feel
There’s gotta be more to life than this
Everything is leaving me in such a bliss

It feels like everyone is tearing me so far down
Even if I scream it seems like no one hears a sound
This all feels like a world of nothing
Falling so fast not being able to hold on to something

Listening to every single word that people say
Only is taking me to my own dismay
Trying to get out of this mess
Maybe this is only a test

Hoping to find something meaningful in this world of hurt
Not matter what I do I need to stay alert
Out in this lonely dark place
Hoping to find at least one decent face

Time is running so thin 
Now I’m getting worried from within
This evil creature is staring into my eyes
Implanting such terrorizing lies

No matter how much I scream
I can’t escape this evil dream
Living in this cold and lonely place
Terrors I must always face

The only thing that gets me through
Is knowing one day I’ll be saved and be with you
Now I’ll just sit here and pray
Praying with me you’ll always stay

Light my bridge

T. Hunt
Verse/intro: I remember you showed me that path,
When you paved the road for existence. 
 ~Showed me all the cracked doors, broken escapes, and then the darkness.
I can barely remember the look in your eyes my demise I realized “deaths” upon us.
~So show me the way to ignite this fight let destiny control us.~ Inferno on fire like human desire it burns we perspire and it forgets us. So where does this lead I can’t see I can’t breathe I can’t speak I can’t eat I can’t….think.
Chorus: ~This fire in our lives just burns and burns I’ve seen the light and now this hurts. And through the night the devil lurks so light my bridge like fireworks and catch me in the middle…..~”ALL alone”
Verse 2 I’m searching for the black door “that’s unknown remembering the times when they closed. |~Forget about the painted rose the times I let my heart get cold. This is real. ~Stuck in the middle of life helplessly buried alive. This bridge is breaking my pride so somebody turn on a light. ~The darkness is flowing inside it’s almost if I was..To dive. Running and running while blind is like walking right out of your life.

Chorus:~ This fire in our lives just burns and burns I’ve seen the light and now this hurts.
And through the night the devil lurks so light my bridge like fireworks and catch me in the middle…..~”ALL alone”
~Alone __{reapeat 4x’s}___________
The  lights turned on this bridge is long.

Discovery

Mr Wise Man, show me the way
I can't keep walking into walls all day

Quitting jobs wasn't easy but the reasons we're wrong
I felt like I was feeding King Kong
Left my life to help those that need it
Got mistreated, left, all to repeat it

The lessons are eternal they won't ever change,
That's your gift to me so that I won't be deranged.
So now that I have gotten better please give me my strength
My life is something that is losing it's length.

Mr Wise Man, show me the way
I can't keep walking into walls all day

Tolerance has always been my strongest feature,
Made me forget about every evil creature.
Test my limits all you want, I know it's vital
That is all a case of survival.

I don't know why I just keep trying
In the end I know I'll be dying.
My faith has been put to test
A test that will put me to rest

All the worlds I've been to
All the places I've gone through
Every single man woman and child
Every single one would make another mild

Stronger than the rest
This should make me the best
Or maybe it's best I don't know
Maybe it's best I just go

So Mr Wise Man, don't show me the way
I can't keep walking into walls all day

I'll walk my own path

Answer Me [Part 2]

Im fighting for an answer
to the troubles of my life,
Im begging you father
put an end to my strife,
I've had enough of this
This is driving me mad
The hollow feeling inside
Tells me my soul is already dead

The fear is too harsh lord
I can't take it any more,
I elude sleep;
Coz my nightmares are gore,
Everyday is a new brawl
I try to get hold
of my pitiful life,
But the world's just too cold

Take a moment of your time
see what I've done to myself
Take a pause;
It's like Im living in hell
Yet you do nothing,
But I keep telling myself
Easy boy;
This crap, it probably ain't real

But unfortunately it is
Im done living a lie
Im a fighter, I will fight
I don't need you by my side
One step at a time
I will wipe off my shame
You bet I will
I will undo the blame

Yet I await
your answer lord
I need strength
I need strength
O' lord

Do you feel the
Pain that I feel
Why the silence
Answer Me
Do you hear me
Cryin' out loud
Are you listening
Answer Me

Death Meets Love

I got trapped in the dark 
the cancer creeps closer towards my heart 
I cant stand the pain that starts

they put a needle in me 
my heart stops beating 
I cant hear my thoughts or what im feeling

everything seems cluttered 
I stand here in a daze 
but your face starts to fade

I start to loose my feeling 
my hands are numb and my toes wont budge
my brain stops working 
little flakes peel off my heart

my heart turns gray 
I cant wait to fly away
in the light I shall go 

somewhere else but my home
where pain meets pleasure and death meets love

To Part is to Die

To part is to die;
Means forever that I
Will give my heart, body and mind,
Whenever to fight
For the rest of my life...

I will always try
To give you the sun, moon, and stars,
And everything under the sky.
I will forever strive
To quench you when you're dry,
If you're low, build you high.
Help you spread wings and fly...

To catch every tear you cry.
To never be the reason they fall from your eye.
Look into mine,
I promise no lie,
Together our dreams are infinite,
Let's bring them alive.
The world is divine,
So let's take our time,
And enjoy each treasure that crosses our line.
Thought the path may curve, each mountain we'll climb.
We'll never swerve and never divide.
Place your heart in my hand and I'll give you mine.
We'll put together our knots and let love make tie.
Swear on my entity, to never abandon your side.
No more, no less;
To part is to die.

Upon this Christmas Day

He sleeps there in a stable
The babe born to the world
Both mother, father watch with care

Though swaddled in a cloth
He is born, yet, to be king
With but just rags for Him to wear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

For within the early morning
Angels brought the sky a voice
Calling forth those who wish to hear

Along then, came all others
Knowing truth within their hearts
That all now have nothing to fear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

Go forth and tell all others
Who had no chance to hear
The news of hope and of the joy

Let them know the Gift of God
That comes to save us all
His son sent as this little boy

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

Missing

Walking around the graveyard
Untaggling his hands from the pocket in his jacket
its clear in his head that he's screaming for something
that something is missing within his heart

Taking off his hat as he sits it on her grave
Pulling out a piece of paper
The death certificate that her name was signed on
a tear falling from his cheek 
he reaches down to pick up the flower he laid there before

crumples at his touch
sitting down the piece of paper
he asked her
how can i love?
when the one i want is not here?

tears fall from his eyes unto the paper 
he lights a candle
sits it by her tombstone

He lays down beside her
listening to the wind
hoping to hear her voice
something he longed for
something that he was missing

he falls asleep
holding the stem of the rose that crumpled before
The pedals fly away with the wind
and the flame of the candle burns out
the rain starts to fall

He lays with his eyes closed
He goes back in time
The rose pedals fall back unto the stem
The paper flies back into his pocket

He walks back into town
Back into the house he was at before
Back at her funeral
to the hospital they were at
When they found out she had cancer
To the church where they got married
To the time when he asked her to marry him
Finally to the place where they met

There story replays again in his mind
he lays cold on the ground beside her
The wind dies down
and the candle starts burning again

For a Little While

For a Little While…

A hammer, a chisel, and a tablet made of stone
All I’ll ever need when I find myself alone
It makes more sense that I would finally set you free
I’ve held you back for too long
Don’t tell me you can’t see
A world awaits you; take a step into the light
No one to hold your hand
But only for a little while…

I see a picture forming of you in my mind
A crystal clear depiction telling me that you’ll be fine
What of me you ask? 
What will become of me?
I’ll fade on the horizon just as you’ve realized you’re free
Perhaps we’ll meet again, if only for a little while
Nothing more than friends again
With nothing to reconcile;
If only for a little while…

A hammer, a chisel, and a tablet made of stone
All I’ll ever need to keep from being alone
I feel it deep inside, like the turning of a screw
I’m so wound up, uptight, and I don’t know what to do
I know the world awaits you
So take a step into the light
No one to hold your hand
But only for a little while…

The picture I see of you is forming in my mind
A crystal clear depiction
Telling me that you’ll be fine
What of me you ask? What will become of me?
I would fade on the horizon just as you’ve realized…you’re free
Even, if only for a little while…

Words of Courage

I'm waiting for my moment
My moment to shine
One thats irreplaceable
And very hard to find
 
I'm doing my best
To smile to the world
I know that theres a reason
Why I'm a shy girl
 
I'm probably not special
In any kind of way
But I wont let that
Ruin my day
 
I'm gonna do best
No matter how hard it'll be
I'm not doing it for anyone
I'm just doing it for me
 
I had my moments
I had my days
But I won't let it get me down
No not today

Sorhleod

It was the myriad relapse The shadows perched, time slipped, the temptation resided to my mind I'm sure I have most the soul I never once had Lost; once you go into the dark eternal black there's no hope of dreaming of atoning back Small child I cling to you trying to savor the innocence When I could believe in everything again I tried All along to search for the truth But " the truth" is something that the truth eradicated I want to be ignorant again Can't face reality again Cease the pain that the pills can't heal Evaporate the blood that negates the strife Let me believe in everything again Break the fear Remove the pins of reality And I still wonder why And I still wonder why "forgive" makes me cry I can't make it stopThe razor beckons my name The scars and all their Shame... Find a way to pierce my serpent heart Through the iron membrane it's bleeding, I know When I have no cigarettes to burn When I have no more knowledge to Learn When I have no more xanax To cause concern I've dried out My heart is loosing it's touch There's no way out The abuse and abyss has sealed me Cease the pain that the pills can't heal Evaporate the blood that negates the strife Let me believe in everything again Break the fearRemove the pins of reality And I still wonder why And I still wonder why "forgive"makes me cry I've dried out My heart is loosing it's touch There's no way out The abuse and abyss has sealed me I've dried out tMy heart is loosing it's touch There's no way out The abuse and abyss has sealed me

You Ain't Shot Rapids

     YOU AIN'T SHOT RAPIDS
I've got a dream, but it's only a daydream,
that we're out sailing the sea,
or climbing a mountain, or shooting some rapids,
but you're doing it with me.
Oh, how I wish you would see things my way,
and these things would all come to be,
cause you ain't climbed mountains, 
and you ain't shot rapids,
until you've done it with me.

Climb a mountaintop with me.
Come and sail with me on the sea.
You've got so many worlds to find,
if you do it with me.

I've got a dream, but it's only a daydream,
until you let it come true,
climbing that mountain, and shooting those rapids,
it'll be me and you.
Oh, how I wish you would see things my way,
and these things would all come to be,
cause you ain't climbed mountains,
and you ain't shot rapids,
until you've done it with me.

A Defining Moment

A Defining Moment…

What is yet to come may very well prove to be,
The defining moment in our lives
The next and possibly last chapter
A defining moment in our lives… 
Is it the answer to my prayers?
Have we reached the gate to hell?
What awaits us come the morning
What awaits after the tolling bell?
The rising sun, it is sure to come
But will it have the strength to save the day
Or will the dark clouds rise, please rise
And make me fight to light my way…

What is yet to come may very well prove to be,
A defining moment in our lives
The next and possibly last chapter
A defining moment in our lives…
I can’t believe some of the things I’ve seen
Can’t believe I may be part of a solution
What have I left; but for my soul redeemed
A survivor of the persecution?
I needed to change to see a change 
Paint a vision shared by all
I close my eyes, I sign the cross
I hold on tight and pray

But I know tomorrow brings with it
A darkened sky…
So still, I will hold on tight and pray

What is yet to come may very well prove to be,
A defining moment in our lives
The next and possibly last chapter
The defining moment in our lives…

First-generation student

As an evanescent quietness falls into my room
While a stream of breeze air invades the living room,
A new, unborn poem waves in my blurred thought,
Endeavoring to keep me from being distraught.

I’m desperate; I deserve even a better cabin.
Thus, my mind is abiding a religious doctrine
In the purpose of enriching my knowledge
By meeting standards to get enrolled in college.

Inspiration is sometimes a key to survive.
Joel Osteen, you keep my lost dream alive.
But, the cryptic concept of life is the absurd.
Will my celestial request remain unanswered?

To avoid failure and exhibit one’s braveness,
To gain success and the pursuit of happiness,
Virtuosity must be laid open rather than latent
For a high-achieving, first-generation student.

The Soul I Sold ---:2

If I seem down
forgive me

frowns I carry around
live in me

you may say,
ya' see right through me

your words untrue,
renew me

the hurt I’ve learned
brews in me

if only you could
re-design me

take time rewind,
refine me

recreate the mold, without lies I’ve told;
give back the soul I sold.

Girl

Girl, did ya ever find a guy and wonder
Why’s he seem more than a friend?
He takes you over and under
A starry night outside your bed
Can it be he wants to last?
He cancels dates just way too fast
The tension’s drawn it’s hard to see
The things to be that I can feel

God Will Be First

When to Jordan bank I came 
No where to go, I could not cross 
I knelt all broken and ashame 
Then a man stood there to carry me across 

Cho. 
Put your feet in the water he said 
And set the ark before, I will be first 
Trust me in your heart, I have led 
Your father's in the red sea, God will be first 

The desert behind was cold and so bare 
Lord, I am weary, I have no return 
Shake my doubt again, like a Sinai here 
By faith alone your power I discern 

My father is sleeping for you to come 
On the wake up morning, mother waits for you 
All the bride resplendant, now ransome 
Me, for your love alone is forever and true. 

I stood there that day, O, hear what I say 
The waters rolled into piles, a mighty dome 
The man with sword, O, he made a way 
Faith parted my Jordan, faith leads me home

Redwood Tree

Skies are Blue
Trees are green
I keep on walking round that redwood tree,
I keep on walking around that redwood tree.

I've been walking
For days on end
And I still can't see
The light again.
So I'll keep on walking round that redwood tree,
I'll keep on walking round that redwood tree


I've kept on walking
till I met you
With sea blue eyes
A pretty smile, too.
So no more walking
Round that red wood tree
No more walking down that redwood tree.

Can it

Why do I chase the atom?
when the universe has always been mine.
Can love evolve from red giant
into a galaxy?
Dust and stone
become skin and bone,
born; fall and rise again.


I love the black holes
of your eyes
for they radiate
much more light 
than they could ever take.
White hot coals made to rake
caked surface of my lungs.


How I long to see your breath
steam up the silence in my soul.
Droplets, turn into rapids
and rush my question away.
I tripped; stumbling
my spirit crumbling.
Hold; release those fingers.


Strength born of sugar
does not last, and it feeds fear
I need complex and organic
Can rotten become fresh?
Carry the inner babe
Cain and brother Abe.
Save: heal the tether.

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

My heart is beating with upbeat delight 
You astound me…in every shape and form 
My spirit is dancing with unbreakable might
You surprise me…when you take my hand
And pull me outtah my jail-like dorm

And He dismisses me from my solitude…
My eyes are glistening with bliss… 
And I’m far from my demise… 
Only to find that there’s no need to feel helpless

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

Just protect me from any harm 
Let me make my own decisions…
To see the results in the long run 

You prize me as if I’m cherished like your carefree child
You don’t understand – I’m TOO foolish and wild
I haven’t even reached to full maturity 
But how eye hope to see myself grow and be set free
From the world’s mayhem
Is there a solution to this problem?

And I’m left with no answer…
My eyes are eager to see…another bright day 
And the night is coming to haunt me… 
I find myself slowly disappearing from sight…
When will God give me a purpose to fight? 
When will He feed me His awesome might? 

Just support me…especially during my downfalls
Please answer my calls!

And I’m left to venture off into His path…

Eye can’t escape my terrible nightmares 
Consider my calls of acceptance…my grief weighs a ton
Let me pour forth my tears – 
Do me a favor and cast away my fears
Steer me away from disorder and confusion

Eye can see you’re making great progress
You’re heading towards a brighter, superb future…

My eyes 
No longer witness oblivion 
My eyes
Looks beyond the earthly pain…
bEyOnD the affliction 

I spot a rope in the distance. . . . . 

Push aside the waves…and let me
Grab it this instant!
God feeds me His love…and treats me
Like a newborn infant!

Eye see my Father with brand-new eyes  
I feel rare content
And I feel hardly any resentment

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

The Less Privileged

Having the luck of being born into the claws of poverty
Our strength and power cannot carry us to freedom, why?
For like stagnant waters we lay still unwillingly
Knowing that our fate lies in the hands of God.
Every day we sleep with hunger and wake with anger,
And some of us simply pray for death to hasten his call.
Even though the reception there is incomprehensible,
Still, death appears the only way, the remedy.

Although by providence or coincidence unknown,
Some of us have left us behind untold.
Call them money miss road or money found road,
They remain the emigrants of poverty
The immigrants to the cream of society.
And we stay to welcome and accommodate,
Not only those who are born into our world, 
But those who had but little stay in the rich world,
As they come rushing like waterfalls,
For now they have a new name, ‘the less privileged.’

The ambitious among us have wishes and dreams, 
And strive as we can, the situation remains the same.
But the struggle to achieve is not to end,
For our everyday song is ‘we shall overcome.’
Yet we cannot blame God for our fate, why?
Some who are rich wish they are like us with peace, 
And we cannot be here and there at the same time.
Our main focus now is in heaven, the kingdom of God.
For there we shall have rest, wealth, and joy, 
All of which here we have not but need much.
Till then, when equilibrium shall prevail,
God, give us this day our daily bread.

The Labor Of Love

Thank you God for all that you have given me
You pulled me through, the worst 5 years of my life
But I realize for the first time, I am truly living my life
On a journey with no worries, The view is blurry
But as long as my love for you is burning
I am as clam as the breeze, as still as the trees
though I dont know what is going to happen to me
I have feeling If i give you everything
Put my hand in your glove
Im going to accomplish things I never could never dream of
Allow me to stand above, those who chucked me under the bus
Shoved me into the mud, I trust that you will not sort of or kind of
But fully dispose of my enemies, who cussed at you through shunning me
So we have no other option than to be thrusted to number one, Its a must
that my light for you is more lumious than the sun
Leave the oposition studdering and stunned
Doing it all in the name of your son, Jesus
This is how I must live my life, I call it The Labor of Love
Something I can not get enough of, I maybe under the gun
But Im still focused on fun,  People need to wake up
 and smell the scents, it all makes sense
when you make the change in your brain
Get rid of the thoughts of peformance
That drive you insane, realize your mistakes
Are indications that we need to shift our focus
To Jesus, No need to be anxious
 Its not about the perfection rather the persistance
Then the weight of the world will be lifted
You can live life how it was inteded
As care free as adam and eve.

Amazing Grace Wash Over Me

A prayer for those who are in dispair along the Gulf Coast due to the BP Deepwater Horizon 
oil rig explosion. A prayer for those who waited and their loved ones did not return, Amazing 
Grace Wash Over Thee.



Amazing grace wash over me.
My tears are a river to the sea.
Lord above, we know you know,
the oil that is washing upon our coast.
Amazing grace wash over me,
and lift my soul up to Thee.
Lord above, hear my prayer,
for those who are in dispair.
Amazing grace wash over me.
I lift my hands to God you see.
My prayer for those who were hurt,
and those who will never return to earth.
Amazing grace wash over thee,
families were left in disbelief.
Empty hands, their loved ones gone,
Lord Jesus, guide them safely Home.
Amazing grace wash over me, 
the oil is filling up the sea, 
from Louisiana to Mississippi.
Animals are dying,
and people are crying.
Amazing grace wash over me.

My Friend The Piano

You carried my emotions from the start
Each emotion bound in the small black note
Each one coming straight from my chilly heart
The music you make is my antidote
Through the preludes my comfort softly lay
By way of mazurkas my soul does fly
But to divulge you must learn how to play
Although learning is not a piece of pie
Piano brings emotions around town
You have the power to bring my heart up
Or throw me on the floor and beat me down
There are hard times when I just want to cup
My hands in my face and rock back and forth
And think Piano is a friend of worth

Searching For My Lord

 (verse 1)
I can't hear Him,
I can't see Him,
But I know He's very close to me.

I can't feel Him,
I can't touch Him,
But I know He's got his eyes on me.

So Im packing up my bags,
Praying He'll take me by the hand,
Cause Im going to search around this world,
For my Lord.

(chorus)
Im searching high,
Im searching low,
Im searching everywhere around the world for my Lord.

Im searching to,
Im searching fro,
Im searching everywhere around the world for my Lord.

 (verse 2)
He created this world,
With His own two hands.
He has turned the Red Sea,
To dry land.

He has saved Noah,
And Noah's family
And I know He'll do the same,
For you and me.

So brethrens and sisters,
Lets all pack up our bags,
Cause we're going to search around the world,
For our Lord.

 (chorus)
We're searching high,
We're searching low,
We're searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

We're searching to,
We're searching fro,
We're searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

(verse 3)
Im searching for my Lord,
In your eyes.
Im searching for my Lord,
In your heart.
Im searching for my Lord'
In your soul.
Searching for that love'
Thats purer then gold.

 (verse 4)
Do you believe in Him,
Like He believes in you.
Do you show Him that your love,
Is true.

Yes I love my Lord,
And I know He loves me.
For that is what the Bible,
Tells me.

So brethrens and sisters,
Lets all pack up our bags,
Cause we're going to search around the world,
For our Lord.

 (chorus)
We're searching high,
We're searching low,
We're searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

We're searching to,
We're searching fro,
We'er searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

Oh yes we're searching everywhere,
Around the world,
In your eyes,
In your heart,
In the soul of yours,

FOR OUR LORD

I can ever be

Across the grassy plain, upon the hills.
My hearts struggles with loneliness thrills.
A black shadow castered over me.
Making me lonely as I can ever be.
I have to fight for my existence.
Have to stop the devil from making it all end.
Have to find my way to God, have to remove the distance.
But at the same time have to pretend.
That devil you can't win this fight.
But I know how much broken I'm from inside.
But as far My God is with me.
I'll stay strong as I can ever be.

living or just breathing

it's times like these when you are at your lowest point

when you are on your knees with your head held down

oh , how vulnerable you must be

Get up

and get that dirt off of your jeans

Don't let them see you like this 

Oh, please just rise up and realize that your life has meaning

You're so much stronger than you look

I swear, just don't turn your back on the ones that you love

the ones who never gave up on you

you push, you pull, you thrive to survive

but how can you succeed when you haven't even opened your eyes

it appears that you have hit rock bottom but you just need to stop following the trends and 
beliefs of this dying generation

oh yes, stand up, rise above, with both of your eyes wide open

Live your life and know what it means to succeed

Be yourself and live to live

Not just to breathe

THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU

     THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU
I know too well, we have to see
Some times in life that shouldn't be.
But through it all, in all I do,
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.

Our song may not tell everything
About the hurt that time can bring.
But through each pain we're going through,
Every song I ever sing, I'll always sing it for you..

This much I promise you.
I'll always have this love for you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

This much I promise you.
I'll always share this love with you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

Sometimes we go without a prayer
Because we just don't see one there.
But God is there, in all we do.
Everytime I ever pray, I'll pray a little for you.

I know sometimes we have to cry.
Because of love, I don't know why.
But through each tear I'm going through
Every time I ever cry, I'll cry a little for you. 

Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
 This much I promise you.

As I Lay Dying

I feel lazy and weak
Words, I can no longer speak
Body so worthless, fully limp
All my pride faded, officially a wimp
Brain barely carrying out its function
Breaking apart like a loose junction
My vision is blurry
Fading from this world in a hurry
Is this truly the end?
Or is there another place, in it, ill blend
Is there truly a heaven
That has eight doors not seven?
What about hell?
About it, is it true what they tell?
They say there's an afterlife
But what about my children and my wife?
Who'll take care of them when I'm gone?
In denial, the one who's going to be alone
Is no one else but me
This is how it’s supposed to be
The time has come for me to die
And for me, many people will cry
But why am I leaving?
Their sorrow I am weaving
Why am I such at ease about dying?
Worrying about the people who are going to be crying?
Why do I feel so light?
Like a feather flying out of sight
Why is my mind so clear?
No negative thoughts coming near
I'm finally free without even trying
Sadly, it came as I lay dying

Death Cry

This is where they die
In the red painted house of fury
In the pauper's palace 
Where pandemonium is a delicacy

This is where they die
Swimming in the ochre fluid 
Fluid of their massacred brother
Just for the faith fought in bait

This is where we will die
For the faith we hold so dear
And for the faith we fought to keep

Dark, cold World.

===== A little rhyme inspired by DaryIsue LockHart's rhymes =====

It is for the lost..  that I wanna find the way,
Out from this dark place, of pain and misery.
Back to ourselves.. how we were, when we were young,
Before evil played its hand, before the time we got stung.

I wanna be free..  but that'll have to wait!
I'm trapped by emotion, by feelings soo great.
And I'm not alone.. in this victims prison,
D.I.Y Labotomy, I'll make the first incision.

I don't want drugs, to ease my pain,
I found Nirvana.. but can't get back again!
Some say I'm insane!  This train of thought I'm on,
Goes through a portal to another dimension.

But it's a dark, cold world.. where I know no fear,
My heart it stops, my mind sharpens.. becomes clear,
When I look into your eyes.. I can see your soul,
I can reach into your heart.. but I might lose control!

Sometimes I can see.. just a little too much,
And round-about that time, I start to lose touch,
See.. I know why you hurt, but I could hurt them too!
I'd make them scream, long, sweet, songs of sorry.. just for you.

However.. I know something, that they don't know,
I've had a little glimpse, of the place, that they go,
Where they like to turn the tables.. and play little games,
Where sticks and stones hurt, but so will the names!

Till then.. keep strong!  Keep your mind awake,
You've walked through fire, I think you should take a break,
But you've seen the enemy, like me.. you wanna fight,
Thats why I walk alone, with no shadow, in the night.

Things That Matter or Little's Dream

It isn't always a young boy's life skills,
That causes a mother's face to beam.
Nor is it his walk through valleys and hills,
But Heaven whispering to him in a dream.

Oft times dreams emanate with a child,
Leaving others to query God's reason.
And in mom's memory his dream is filed,
For recall, in some beneficial season.

If we take many pictures as we go,
And spend time with family each day.
We catalog memories so others will know,
That indeed we once passed this way.

For it won't be about a birth made fuss,
Or even sights that perhaps we've seen.
But it's all about where death finds us, 
And the tracks that we've left in between.

Ecclesiastes 11-3 KJV

Miserere - God have mercy on me

 
Night after night,
the hassock in my room,
the only safe haven
against the bale anguish of times
reminding me of happiness gone by...
Worn from kneeling,
furrowed from wepping and sighing,
the purple velvet still carries traces
of time impressed with the Lord´s prayers...
Above, a crucifix in the wrath of God
reminds me of my insignificance...
My feeble and quiverving hands
are joined together,
convulsively around a rosary,
Hopelessly rising towards Thee
begging your -
Miserere, Domine!

In Your Love

Every time you kiss my lips 
I am drowning, I'm drowning
Like a never ending abyss
I am drowning, I'm drowning
Every time you whisper I miss you
I am drowning, I'm drowning
In your love,  in your love.

Life doesn't seem dangerous
When I'm drowning, yeah I'm drowning
Don't take it so serious
Cause I'm drowning, yeah I'm drowning
I don't care what they think of us
Cause I'm drowning, yeah I'm drowning
In your love, in your love

EYE Don't See -Part 2-

My eyes
Refuse to see tragedy
My eyes
Marinate in dread…unable to embrace ecstasy 

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s sagging…from endless mourning  
And I’m close to my demise… 
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just let me be
Leave me alone…hand me a gun

I yearn for unspoiled glory
To make me feel perfect once more
I yearn for flawless serenity
To make me feel no regret…don’t ignore
My calls…don’t hang up on me

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just hear my plea
Listen to my excruciating cries…
Listen to the truth, not the malicious lies  
Our journey has just begun   

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me weeping?
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Eye can’t handle the stress
Let me release my horrendous distress
Eye can see you making that same mistake
At least MY life isn’t at stake

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…do You feel my lament
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…Stepped on like cement
I’m aching with discontent… I abhor this torment    
When will peace scrub off my fear?

I can’t believe my eyes
Your guiltiness flows into me…
I can’t believe I fell for your lies
Your heartless action rape my mind…you don’t see
What my EYES see…

You’ll never see 
How much pressure you put me under
Unchain me from this chamber
And watch me flee…

When will you be set free?

Oh the blood at Calvary's cross
Shed for me, His life it cost
What sacrifice of love I see
At the cross of Calvary.

Oh the blood at Calvary's cross
Jesus won there Satan lost
What sacrifice, what victory
At the cross of Calvary.

EYE Don't See -Part 1-

My eyes
Pour forth feelings
That I’ve felt in the past
They make my heart ache…
Take it all away…
Oh my God…
They’re making me sink in dismay

When will they break away?
When will they give me a break?

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me weeping?
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Eye don’t see
A happy ending in this scene 

My eyes
Journeys into the unknown
Who knows what will happen…
They’re like hidden treasure…
They’re buried far below…

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near? 

Oh my God…
They’re driving me insane
When will they see my reflection?
When will they heal the infection?

Eye don’t feel
Raindrops of hope and relief 
All I feel…is grief…
Eye sense no peace…

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s sagging…from endless mourning  
And I’m close to my demise… 
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Does He hear
My supplications?
Does He sense 
My fear?

My eyes
Conceals the tears that dare to spew out
I feel trapped and lost without a doubt…
They erase my delight…
They seek my hurt…
Oh my God…
They’re casting me away into the perilous sea

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace throw out my fear?

Eye don’t see
A ship in sight…to save me from my demise
My lifeless body...
Drifts away in the wild ocean...
Without a sound...
Without emotion...

Eye don’t see
A rope to hold on to…
My hope for peace
Has drowned…

Broken but Blessed

Broken but Blessed
	

I’m broken for now and I don’t know how…but I know it’s not forever and I still 
believe.  Never say never cause’ I surrender to him, all of me.
	Without God in my life, everything stands still…even if I am fulfilled I’m still 
empty, but I’m blessed and I don’t want your sympathy cause I’ll be just fine within 
in this brilliant state of mind.  This is just the beginning, a temporary seasonal 
mode…..so you might want to download and go cause when I spring up from fall 
you’ll upgrade me from a story being told to so many being sold with no holds.
	Then I’m out of sight like a shooting star; you won’t understand how I 
made it this far.  I’m so high on God’s love, that I can never be touched.  Try to bring 
me down, and watch how much higher I rise up.  
Some wonder how I’m broken but blessed and yet have no stress or mess that has 
to be cleaned up…I just look at them and smile cause he’s already begun to work on 
my profile as he circulates me so agile…
And all the while that I wait with patience, he continues to amaze me, adjusts my 
circumstances so I’m free-standing like an angel…my mentality he enhances. So I flip 
the switch with positive insight giving me stability to make it through the stormy 
weather…the idea is so clever and I can free-fall through it all.

God Forsaken Fate

This world 
This world
Is so far gone
Every day I wonder
What the hell’s gone wrong

All this corruption deep inside
Every word’s another lie
Broken promises 
Are just another part
Of every person’s 
Broken heart 

We all point the shame
While we’re the ones to blame
We all play this game
Hoping they’ll know our names
Don’t you know that
Our hearts are full of black
Don’t you see that
Hope is what you lack

Have you looked at our churches
Have you thought about what the meaning of faith is
How dare you tell
Others they’re going to hell
I’ll promise you this 
Jesus was killed with a kiss 

We all point the shame
While we’re the ones to blame
We all play this game
Hoping they’ll know our names
Don’t you know that
Our hearts are full of black
Don’t you see that
Hope is what you lack

I’m so sick of the hate 
I’m sick of everyone losing their faith 
You’re just a godless soul 
You can’t hide from God 
In this forsaken hole 


We all point the shame
While we’re the ones to blame
We all play this game
Hoping they’ll know our names
Don’t you know that
Our hearts are full of black
Don’t you see that
Hope is what you lack

This world
Oh how it disgusts me
How can men expect women to trust 
When they’ll never see past their lust
I’m so sick of the hate, torture, and rape
There’s no hope in this God forsaken fate

My Savior

Savior of mine
I call out to you
Save me from myself
and all I believe that is true.
For my heart is aching inside
and I know not what to do.

Take me by the hand
Guide me to a far away land.
Allow me to escape myself once and for all.

I know not what my future brings
I know not where this path leads
However I do know,
that my heart bleeds 

Savior of mine
Stop this aching pain
Free my soul
from its evil reign.

For life without you,
is lived only in vain.

Savior of mine
I give myself to you
Broken and scared
For this is all that I can do.

For with you
nothing of myself
will remain
From this point on
I can only gain.

Thank you for saving me
This unworthy soul is now set free.

Don't be alike whom you dislike

You are in war
Day and in night
Go you to fight
For peace to live

Keep heart clean
'cause that the case
Don't be alike 
Whom you dislike

When you defeat
Whom you defeat
Don't do the way
Their woe's way

Keep your trace
On the path of rise
Don't be alike
Whom you dislike

WHO LOVES AMERICA

....WHO LOVES AMERICA? --- HAPPY FIRECRACKER DAY!
.......verse 1
Once upon a good time, not so very long ago
There was America, America the dream God used to know.
Where went America, that all the world loved so?
Once upon a time, not so very long ago?
Where went America, the one the world loved so?

......chorus
Who loves America the way she's meant to be?
Who still loves God's dream, from sea to shining sea? Shining sea?
Who loves America the world depended on?
Who loves America?
I can't believe she's gone.
God save America.

......Children Singing Bridge (Pledge of Allegiance)
I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands
one nation, under God, indivisable
with liberty and justice for all

Repeat Chorus.
© ron wilson

The song, WHO LOVES AMERICA?,  plays by default on my poetry website, (still under construction in places,) AND you also hear the children reciting our PLEDGE OF ALLEGANCE the way it should be recited. Beautiful they did so great. It is at vbdosa.com that is all I need to type in my browser, should be the same for you. Mac users may not hear it the song.

SOME WEEP, SOME REJOICE

And we all thought that Christmas
was a jolly season for all ages,
but we've ignored pain...not seeing tears
roll down those cold and fearful cheeks!

Some weep, some rejoice...
others don't celebrate, but rage with malicious eyes;
wasn't that child's birth announced by angelic voices
that attested He was God's choice?


Depression is the worst kind of sadness,
and unless the noticeable signs are felt or filled with alarm:
we may lose persons very dear to us...
before tragedy strikes, intervene to save them from harm!


Some weep, some rejoice....
many show blind belief and resist
to give the Redeemer due praise;
they are the fools who follow a cult!  

 
Why should this holiday be so sad,
wasn't Jesus born to bring us joy...
that's what every joyful angel proclaimed
as they crowned Him king for eternity!


Some weep, some rejoice...
others don't conceive the true worth of Heavenly glory,
they hate goodness and despise holiness:
mocking and twisting the pure image of faithful Mary!

Enlightening

Lightening all you have betrayed
Enlighten the darkness in your brain
Illuminate all you can perceive
From contamination to disease

The voices of hunger will remain
Seeking the power to obtain
A grip on the things that scare you most
To weaken your spirit; to be host

In times of wanting, and in greed
Your first reaction was to feed
Hammering fear in to your heart
Causing your senses to depart

Strength over others comes from fear
Igniting the wars that keep it near
A shadow that sneaks in to your soul
From birth until death you are its goal

Exercise consciousness and thought
Look beyond everything you’re taught
Analyse selfhood and reveal
The bravest ambition is to feel

Forgiving the people that betrayed
Knowing their darkness and their pain
Become the light you need to see
Feel it in all those you set free

Neverland

Sometimes I wish that I could be, a little boy who was just like me. When I was young and not afraid, of anyone or anything. 
   I'll take my time to lose it all. But learn to run before I crawl.  So far away from everything. That this cruel world has thrown on me. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all. So hold onto, your happy thoughts. Grip childhood dreams, don't let them rot!

   I'll shake some hands, and crack a smile. I'm in no rush, I'll be here a while.  To face this world, all on my own. But in your arms, I'm not alone. 
   So take my hand, and hold it tight. Let's spread our wings, and take to flight. We'll break the boundaries, of any road. And go seek out, our pot of gold. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all. So hold onto, your happy thoughts. Grip childhood dreams, let the bad ones rot!
   
Sometimes I believe in miracles. Sometimes I hate this cold hard world. 
Sometimes I just break down and cry. 
That's when my angels help me fly. 

Carry me, high upon your shoulders. Don't let me, grow any older. For Neverland, is where we make it. I'm happy now, no need to fake it. 
   In troubled times, I drift away. And let my childhood memories play. When lost and lonely, pick up the phone. Dear mom and dad, I'm coming home. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all...

SET UP

Set up, high up
Where the clouds starts the race
Reaching,  calls for grace
Not knownly, you stand a chance

Set up, high up
Stands way above norms
Calling unto non but God
Dredged fully in thy good
For a course called Gold

Set up, high up
A dream unknown to these eyes
Light in tunnel dark
Fight to tunnel bright
True success, now you know

Set up, high up
Morals beyond Saints
Emitting gliming virtues
Yearned by all

Set up, high up
Up high
A realm of immortality
Not carnal but in deed
Known to generations

Set up 
To ride high, up high.

Here In This Place



If Jesus walked through those doors today
Would you have a kind word to say?
Would you need more proof?
Would you be loving one another
Or judging your brother
In what you think to be the truth?

Well, Jesus is here in this place
I can see Him in your face
You are a temple in His Kingdom
He lives in all who believe.

If Jesus came and sat down by you
Would you be thinking what else you had to do?
Would you give Him place?
Would you be embarrassed to praise His name
Cry Holy and thank Him He came?
Would you know His face?

'We don't want to miss our blessin'
Lord, help us learn this lesson.
Open up our eyes and let us see.
Help us 'love one another'
Don't let us judge our brother
Before we talk about another
Set us free...
'Cause Jesus lives in all who believe'

Well, Jesus came through those doors today
He waits to hear what you have to say
In that neighbor next to you.
Will you choose to do the Father's will
Or sit in your seat very still
Knowing Jesus sits so close to you?

Now, Jesus is here in this place
Can you see Him in my face?
I am a temple in His Kingdom
And He lives in all who believe...
Yes, We are the Temple in His Kingdom
He lives in all who believe...

Jesus came through those doors today...

Angels Without Wings

There are Angels in Heaven, that haven't any wings.
No miracles or visions or any of those things,
that Angels are said to do, to help us along.
But, these wingless Angels, they sing the sweetest songs.

As they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Fluffing the softest clouds, so as to lay their small heads to rest.
They cover them in quilts of love and tenderness.
You know these wingless Angels, are God's very best.

I know personally, four of the wingless Angels, who love their task.
I am sure they volunteered, without being asked.
Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, never needed wings,
for they were Angels while on this earth, their praises I sing.

As they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Fluff the softest clouds they find, when the babes need rest.
Covering them in quilts of love and tenderness.
Yes, I know these four wingless Angels, are God's very best.

The children flock around Grandpa, to hear his silly jokes.
Watch him make bubbles float and blow multi colored rings of smoke.
Grandma and Mom, make cookies and cake, fresh from the sun.
Making sure as to not run out, sharing with everyone.
Dad is making sure the piggy back rides, never stop.
He finds the best clouds around, to bounce atop.

At night, they rock the babes in Heaven and hold them to their breast.
Gathering up the softest clouds, on which to rest.
They cover them in quilts of love and tenderness.
These four wingless Angels, are God's very best.

Thoughts of A Song Writer

From my thoughts on the paper in which it lies, 
My everlasting passion is inked as it dries.
The way I feel inside, you might want to spy,
But if you pry, how will my lyrics surprise?
A song for thought will only leave a thought.
May sound difficult, but that’s just how I talk.
I was lost, but I found me.
Dreaming and believing that writing was my key.
The way it flows and the way that it goes pumps me to speak
the very thoughts that many minds chose to keep.
Many rocks I’ve kicked and many decisions I’ve made.
Any wrongs I take the blame.
Tic-tac-toe is only a game.
I plagiarize your eyes with the notes that I’ve taken,
A high note here and a low note there-
You’d swear I’m in your head when my song hits your ear.
Pain recognizes pain
And I’ve have my share of bandages.
 My vibes from life heals the permanent damages.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
Reaches farther beyond the beat,
Over the lyrics on the sheet,
Not only is it about the speech,
 But more of what the message seeks.
True enough a theme is touched and a heart is rushed.
With the mind-throbbing picture disappearing 
Through the ink of my pen and revealed through your lens,
You can’t hear me, but do you feel me?
I cherish my talent and where it could possibly sweep me.
My doubts and my worries are beneath me.
I love for brighter days and pray for more things to pave.
Call my life my number because its infinite.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
My mentality drips it.

March

my life was mere existence
inner being barren and lost

a spiritual abyss
I was unprepared to cross

I walked in a winters rain
forsaken by those I loved

my weary body protected
only from the storm above

You knew Your child had wandered,
despair, a beckoning hole

You took me from the tempest
and into your place of hope

dwelling in your home of warmth
my dispiriting chill fades

Your light calms my inner storm,
awareness dawns, I am safe

Pain and Joy

Pain is not commensurate,
There is just no way to measure it.
One may feel it ,know it, seemingly drown in it.
It can be annoying or in the way.
It may be physical and laced with fears,
May last a time and a day...
in the heart and soul or between the ears.
There is just no way to measure it.
To the lonely, pain may even be a friend,
A treasure beyond measure,
To be lovingly offered for good in the end.

Joy. Joy is not commensurate,
There is just no way to measure it.
...Or ..is there .. ?






Inspired by the following "Definition of JOY" according to my Pastor friend.
"Joy is not the absence of pain,.. it is the presence of God."

Captivity

5/8/13
Spread out your wings
Come on, baby – it’s your time to fly today
Our misfortune stings
Pour forth your ecstasy – will it take away
Our despondency?

Bring me out of captivity…
Producing calamity…
I can’t reach for His light –  
THROW ME A ROPE!
I’m buried far below…
Midnight’s as dark as the cawing crow 
I CAN’T CLIMB…due to my lack of energy 
Fortify me by your might 

Spread out your wings
Wake up, darling…wake up to reality – 
Open up your window . . .
Our sundrenched spirits brings
Happiness to the hungry, arduous world 
His sincerity bestow
Miracles & eternal peace instead of 
remorse & catastrophe

Shield me with your radiance
Give me a taste of your jubilance…
Your voluptuous essence  
YOUR Pure, holy Sustenance… 
Not their truculence…
Their arrogance… Their reluctance… 
Their defiance… their unfeeling essence,
Evincing their callous hearts of stone
And crafting it, open to the public
Open to the world of woe

Spread out your wings 
Keep on believing, dearest – 
It’s not your time to die…
Your face is doused in dismay
Your melody still rings
In my ears… sticking to me like a broken record...
Will it shed a tune of delight today? 
Is it a cure to our tragedy? 

Drag me out of captivity… 
I’m sick of all of this cruelty…
I’ve fallen into a pit of obscurity– 
GIVE ME a taste of your effulgence
I’m unchained from my captivity…
Am I surely free? Where shall I flee? 
 Daylight’s as bright as the dove, fluttering gaily 
I’m incapable of flight…due to my lack of wings

Strengthen me throughout my plight! ~  ~  ~ 
  How did you make my high spirits soar upright? ~  ~  ~

To give up... Or not...

 Fierce...Frightening...Hateful...

 Defense...Fear...Braking...

 Like a hawk chasing a mouse is the way it follows me.
 Like a child's scream of pain it tortures me.

 I run. I flee.
 Begging, screaming to be free.

 It entangles my limbs like wild growing vines.
 No matter where I go I trip over the lines.
 
 I'm tired of running. Tired of not knowing what to feel.
 Are these thoughts and feelings my own? Are they real?

 I lay down and curl up. I decide not to fight. 
 I want to give up. That is MY right. 

 As I begin to give up I feel something new. 
 Anger. Its proud, horrifying and could not be more true.

 I jump up and let out a howling scream. I will not give up.
 I will take control. This is my dream. 

 I rip through the vines and pick up my feet. 
 I begin to run forward. I will not retreat. 

 I see something bright. Its so close. 
 I almost gave up. I almost froze. 

 I kept going and found the sunlight. I'm no longer lost. 
 I gave a good fight no matter the cost.

 Now I've ceased what I want to cease.
 Close your eyes and breathe. 

 Its peace.

I Come To Be

This is how I came to be,
Born into sin and iniquity.
The fall of man, the sin of the earth,
Yet Jesus gives me new birth.

This is how I come to be,
Bitter and angry when someone hurts me.
The love I once felt turns to hate.
I fall into addiction to escape.

This is how I come to be,
Overcome with shame, on my knees.
Guilt and condemnation overwhelm my soul
But God says, “I will restore and make you whole.”

This is where I come to be,
Once again, down on my knees.
Bowing before a gracious God,
So thankful, amazed and awed.

This is where I dream to be,
Where streets of gold are all I see.
My life here on earth is done,
And Jesus shines brighter than the sun.

Our Wedding

Our wedding was filled with our colors of choice

We selected individuals to lift their voice

To sing songs of unity and songs of love

Knowing our day was ordained from above

We said I do and started our new lives

With you as my husband and me as your wife

Our little boy was ring bearer, you see

The three of us together, in unity

We chose the bentley for a ride, with glee

It was a sign of our living life...abundantly

It is better to dare than hide

"Shall I hold back my hand

But the carpet is red

Laid before those
    who held not back from life
         because of death! ...
It is better to dare than hide!

Someday I'll have a mansion fair

Jagged Edges








                                            I had once walk this earth naked and broken

Co-Incidence

Co-incidence (n 1 a chance occurence of simultaneous or apparently connected events)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Up, down.. left and right,
It's all around us, like the day and the night,
Too big to miss, but it's beyond our sight,
It's there.. and it isn't.  Nearly is.. but not quite!
You people are ALL right.. so I'll try to be polite,
You can't fight the feeling.. 'cause you haven't got the might,
Can you handle the truth? Get a grip and hold tight,
'Cause it will set you free!  Blow your mind like dynamite!

In the beginning.. I'm sure you know too,
This World was created, it's all been thought through,
Evolving on que, under skies made so blue,
Plant's came before us, just so they could give to you.
Sorry, I'm repeating what you already knew,
But how did these plants know to sow the seeds that grew?
So they slid through our bellies, waiting in our fertile poo?
Symbiosis with the Planet..  does this all sound true?

What about us?  Why are we here?
Why all the questions?  It is obviously clear!
It all makes sense, so there's no need to fear,
Don't confuse the matter, because it's simple my dear!
We have got ears.. so that we can hear,
But why give us a brain?  Because year after year,
We just dig a deeper ditch.. and then flood it with tears,
When the end draws near, will you hear any cheers?

I want a big applause, when I finish this race,
If I finish first..  I won't say "In your Face!"
Try to look good, don't end it in disgrace,
Or even take it slow, and set a nice steady pace.
Never give up!  Learn to lead a merry chase,
Up the garden path, throughout time and space,
And just in case, we end up lost in this place,
The case will be closed and we'll be gone, without a trace.

The Master Of The Rhyme

The Master Of The Rhyme
This was inspired by comments 
made to me , by Great Poets
Peter Duggan and Olive Guillermo
And sung to the tune 
Phantom Of The Opera's 
"Music of The Night"   by Andrew LLoyd Webber 


Words that rhyme well--- serve to show my passion
Searching for the--- style that suits my fashion
Everything I see--- Is a poem meant for me
And I write it though it seems to be sublime 
I truly am the master of the rhyme

While I’m sleeping--- in my mind come creeping
Filled with laughter--- mystery and weeping
Like an artist with his brush---I am filled with such a rush
And it paints a picture deep inside my mind
I wonder if I’m Master of the rhyme

Do you know who’s the Master of all known words
Do you know when he comes or where he goes
As He writes with my hands and through my soul
Whether it be a rhyme or it be prose 

Written words--- start forming innuendoes  
Join and bond--- then rise like a crescendo 
When I awake I find--- this happens every time
I am just the name that must be signed
For I am not the Master of the rhyme

As I sit here staring at the empty page
He whispers in my ear again
I don’t know where the poem’s going to go 
But, when I start the words begin to flow

Is It God, and is He on the level
Cursing me, as If I were the devil
Cause once I start to rhyme---the words begin to chime
Like a bell--- keeps ringing in my mine
He truly is the Master of the Rhyme

He alone holds the blessing---I make mine
For I am just a servant of the Rhyme

Fields of Blasphemy

Where shall I flee? I’m swimming in the waters of misery…
And I’m crying a river…I’m saturated in woe 
How do I think cheerfully? I’m lost in the abyss…and the shadows won’t let me be… 
And I’m bewildered… I’m fighting to break free… 

(I can’t break free…
Where do I flee?
Why can’t I break free?)
The spiders are spinning their webs above me…
Bless me and untangle me from this madness…please… give me peace…I’m wasting away – 

They’re preying upon me…they’re whipping me … warping their way inside of me
My saliva drips on the ground…I’m growing numb and I pray
The monsters don’t attack my heart’s desires…if I let them break free,
I’ll never be the same…I’ll never see the light of day

Where do I belong? I’m roaming in the fields of blasphemy 
And I’m crying a river…I feel like an awful disgrace… 
How do I find a pathway? I’m lost in fields of weeds…they’re producing catastrophe 
And I’m bewildered… I’m trying to finish the race… 

(I can’t keep pace…
The sweat is trickling down my face…
Why can’t I keep pace?)
The wasps are chasing after me…where do I flee?
Caress me and save me from the distress…stinging me in pleasure…I’m drifting away – 

They’re hovering all around me… they’re harassing me…could you wipe away my tears?
Find me a place of rest…to make the sufferings end and I pray
The darkness will stop spreading lies in my head…if I throw away my fears, 
I’ll never learn to face my fears…I’ll never know His way…

Where shall I go? I’m roaming in the fields of blasphemy 
And I’m crying a river…I’m saturated in woe 
How do I find the key? I’m lost in fields of weeds…they’re reproducing catastrophe
And I’m bewildered… 

I’m yearning to let go… 
I’m learning to cope with my fears…
I’m deserting my woe…
I’m wiping away the tears... 
(that has been bottled up for many years… )

The spiders have ensnared me in their webs…
I’m in danger…I’m wrapped up in distress…
 and there is no where to hide… 
The wasps are tracking me down...I haven’t paid my debts…
I’m struck in alarm…I’m in a mess…
Please stay by my side – catch me as I collide
( We’re all together on this ride… )

I can’t break free (please relieve me from my despair) 
Why can’t I break free? Where do I flee? (this pain is too much to bear)
I can’t keep pace (give me the energy to shine like the sun)
Why can’t I keep pace? Why can’t I finish this race? (give me some strength to run)

Lovers Departed

Lovers departed
Like two souls unwanted
Sent to Hell in a hand basket
To make it out on your own
Futures are uncertain
Hope can be lost
Place faith in the fact that
What could have been, never was

Hearts and minds tend to fight
An epic tug-of-war
All you ever wanted 
blew out the front door
And now all we do is search
For Mister and Miss Right
But did we just maroon them, each other, on shore?

Long words abandoned
For those softer on tongues
One plans the future,
The other plans today’s fun
Why can’t they both
Simply cross the other’s path
It’s for not lack of trying
Until turning one’s back

Memories have faded
Yet others return
Was it a fair exchange 
to receive the good for the spurned?
The wrong days will cut you
With fears and regrets
Sometimes we hold onto
What no one thinks is best

In the foggy uncertain
Only time can unfold
If happiness awaits 
Or you die old and alone

FAITH KEEPS US APART

It seems the path Iam on  is changing everyday
the road uncertain just an endless shapeless gray
some would say it would all be clearer if I took up there religion
even with the doubt Iam not scared enough for that decision

I see the faith you placed in one of the many saviors
I lame excuse for the centuries of mad behavior
Iam sure your prophets where the very best of man
but your church and bibles where never in the plan

so every race has a version of there own
stories stolen from the gods of the past spoken out like it was always known
not one of these faiths is open and understanding
they keep others down and your soul churches are demanding

then you history holds no science no enlightenment
dogmatic foolishness written before free government
and every soul that is afraid to die or to ashamed to live
if you stop thinking then heaven is what they give

even now the human mind is found wanting
but reality is intelligence is hard work and life is daunting
if only the concept of good will and love
we understood without some sign from above

if you need the ancient fiction to ease your pain
I respect you and to all other men you should do the same
your saviors were righteous there’s know doubt
in there time they worship but no church was there twist whets its about

there have been many Christ’s since the beginning of man 
the Mayans and Muslim have had tales since they ruled by the roman
dry king ghandi and many more sacrifice there life so others could be free
in my mind that’s what Jesus is what he is supposed to be

even know there some man of great worth he has no money no powerful church
he’s  giving of himself and and loving the lost I dare you to search 
and see the truth were in this together and this is paradise
we are the only keepers of our fate we must realize

I can no longer people pay to pray and talk down to others who dont believe what you say
but Christ himself did not hang with the saved he knew the hopeless so he could see them ok
but times have changed were not ruled by religious empires mad with slavery
we fought for those rights not with one mans good with collective human bravery

a new age is upon us and the true test is coming not one of prophecy
the makers of worlds the stars the cycle of suns chaos of the galaxy
I hope soon we see are only time is now there is no second chance
are race needs to come together  and make a united stance
if faith keeps us apart do we even have the heart

GOD

            GOD

Your power lives inside of me
Because the love you give I see
It is the motion in your ocean
It is the quenching of your potion

Only you could set me free
Mojo, Dojo, Buddha, Ra
Shiva, Osiris, Mohammed, God
Only you could set me free

You are the reason for my living
Everyday thank you for giving 
You cried for me, you died for me
You saved my soul, thank you oh Holy One……………………………………….

Your power lives inside of me
Because the love you give I see
It is the motion in your ocean
It is the quenching of your potion

Only you could set me free
Mojo, Dojo, Buddha, Ra
Shiva, Osiris, Mohammed, God
Only you could set me free

Sometimes I lose my way
And take the road astray
I’m just a human and a sinner
Nothing perfect, not a winner 

But I’m working to get better
I sing praise to you in this letter
You gave me life, you saved my soul
You gave me strength to make it thru this all 

Your power lives inside of me
Because the love you give I see
It is the motion in your ocean
It is the quenching of your potion

Only you could set me free
Mojo, Dojo, Buddha, Ra
Shiva, Osiris, Mohammed, God
Only you could set me free

You are the reason for my living
Everyday thank you for giving 
You cried for me, you died for me
You saved my soul, thank you oh Holy One……………………………………….

Outcry of a broken heart

Even my mind not stilled by silence
my thoughts outraged with hurt and hate
as Im dumbfounded with confusion
leaving the cause to no debate,
I cannot tell you what is wrong
to tell you means I'd have to trust,
and my heart no longer feels willing,
beating only cause it must.

I feel a dead man live my life
I see his cold abandoned heart,
I hear his agonising cries
as he is torn more apart,
knowing no peace, no rest I find
having no comfort, stuck in a bind
a vagabond, alone in his life
Ive been cut off, betrayal was the knife.

awaiting death, and still much worse
my whole life upon this earth
seems like a scheme to take my worth
and bring me to nothing,
such is my curse
and i fear the effects
may never reverse
and make believe that I am cursed.
the way I feel too great for words
too great to bear such constant hurt
my soul depressed and left prostrate
before God to help, I hope it works. . .

Soar

Perched on the precipice
of the world,
Desperately trying to
Grow wings before the earth
Crumbles below.
 A misstep, a mistake
A single misspoken word
Will shatter the very foundation
Upon which i stand
And will cast me into 
The infernal abyss below.
Confined by the illusion
that turning back is not
An option, erasing my past
will sever the very fibers
Of my inner and outer selves,
I extend my arms and,
clawing the air,
I fall.
A leap of faith that sends me 
hurdling into the darkness below.
I close my eyes.
I dream. I hope.
I believe.
My motion slows.
I emerge from that pit 
Like a diver bursting through
The membrane between 
sea and sky.
I have found my wings
and I soar.

Upon the Silence

...however as he slothfully reclined
Banking himself on the cold steel bench
Dilemma gripped nastily on his shoulders;
The clouds pace above and as if alive
Winked at him- pulling memories from behind

"Oh yes, we are but a speck of a seed
A granule, puny and almost trivial
By how- minute as we- pull off an impact
Than a lone tree in a dry sunny land
And lighted cottage amidst dark forest indeed?"

Resounding they truly are, his mentor's words
Past and spoken, long uttered in the wind.
Yet it reverberates from the turquoise skyscrapers
To the bench he sat beside his proud Ford.

"For the proper or for the practical thing?"
An innocent query shrieking upon the silence.
a galleon of betterment versus virtue;
The bright clouds blots his space on the wide greenery.
"Affirmative." A salmon is going upstream.

Simple Things

The sun, the moon, and the stars above.
rhythm, rhyme, beauty, and grace.
Thunder, lightning, wind, and rain.
Flowers, trees, and grass.
As time goes by we tend to forget 
these the simple things in life. 
So  as you drive your car, 
ride the bus, train,or airplane.
Think back to a simpler time,
when peace and harmony 
were the focus of all mankind.

It's Obvious

I was introduced into the vast illusions of life.
Some people call it love, others call it a knife.
Cutting your skin so you can bleed.
Each drop is a distraction from what you need.
You close your eyes and take the pain.
Then all your worries are temporarily in vain. 
No progress, no digress
Just that moment to believe that more is less.
Oh and you grieve from your hopelessness
You accept the fact that you have lost your happiness
You cry, You scream! Help is what you seek
No one hears though, we just ignore and call you a freak
All this segregation
All this quote on quote integration
The only thing it does is make the big seem bigger 
And the small seem smaller.
Belief is the only thing you keep
You grasp it so tightly and put it under your feet
Each step is a different view
You’re looking around for something new
Eyes stay open, Heart is listening
Your intentions are bright and glistening.
You want to change from mad
And achieve the beautiful emotion of simple glad  
Battle this depression, get away from this mess and
Find a whole new state of mind open for progression.
Your voice sounds desperate.
Your scars show desperate. 
You are desperate, and you’ve made a mess of it.
But it’s obvious to me,
That you can finally see
How to overcome the desperation
And use your failures as inspiration.
Yes, it’s obvious to me.

We have hope in Gloryland

Just the other day
a scene caught my eye
parents picking flowers for the grave of a child
tears filled my eyes as I realized 
this was the only gift for Christmas they could by

but we have hope in gloryland
someday we'll meet again
what a glad reunion that will be
no more pain and strife
or loss from this life
yes, we have hope 
over in glory land

I have a baby 
in heaven you see
and the angels are holding that baby for me
somedays I cry , then I stop and  realize
Heaven is just a sweeter place for me

I have family 
and loved ones 
waiting over there just for me
and I know they are sick no more
Then I start thanking Jesus 
for The Precious price He paid
thanks to Him I have heaven to look for.

SANCTIFIED

                                            
Raising holy hands up unto the sky, we praise thee Lord Jesus whom is glorified!
As heirs to the promise onward we forge, children of covenant upon eternal shores.
Confessing salvation in “The Word” now conceived: a path for tomorrow that‘s truly free!
Divine in direction as the Holy Ghost leads, no more to sorrow in Gods' love now retrieved…

                           And sanctifi - - ied, sanctifi - - ied, sanctifi - - ied:
                           by the blood of the Lamb we‘ve been sanctified!
                           Sanctified from the lust of flesh,
                           sanctified unto true holiness.
                           Sanctified in His peace and love:
                           its Jehovah Shalom we speak of..!

                           in the glorious presence of your power.
                           Faithful and chosen are those who believe:
                           blood redeemed out of this world that has fallen… 

Casting off life’s worries in Gods' peace to abide, justified freely by grace sanctified.
Through redemption in Christ Jesus ransom is paid, His Holy Spirit now leads the way!
Communed in a holy transition beyond-ward to soar, finding a gladness unknown before.
Becoming the reflection of our Savior adored, lost in unspeakable happiness forevermore..!

                           And sanctifi - - ied, sanctifi - - ied, sanctifi - - ied:
                           by the blood of the Lamb we’ve been sanctified!
                           Sanctified unto His righteousness; 
                           "Alleluia" Jehovah M’Kaddesh!
                           Sanctified in the King of kings,
                           of His goodness all creation sings.
                           Lord Jesus whom is here and now, 
                           given you is all the glory and the power.
                           Kneeling before thee by faith we receive:
                           that jubilantly blessed sound of your voice calling…

                                                                                         Brother Christian

You Are My Everything

Lately I've broken myself in
Feeling more comfortable
In my own skin
The places my feet
Have taken me
Lead to a complete turn around
Both directions seem so long
But I was in the wrong
I'm more than just aspiring
With you, with you tonight

I may run ahead
But I can't leave you behind
I just need a to get a view of life
And tell you what I find
You hate this place
I can see it in your face
You're just taking care
Of the fragile moments we've shared
Even with no words to speak
You are my everything
Even with nothing to keep
You are my everything
I'm more than just aspiring
So keep an open mind
With me tonight, with me tonight

I never put a patent on confidence
My arrogance leads me back to you
In this never ending race
And now with nothing left to lose
My words may sound cruel
With nothing left to prove
Keep looking ahead
With your eyes on the prize
I'll pay the price for 
The expenses you've occurred
Keep looking ahead
I'm not too far behind
To help you find truth
In all the lies
Carry the weight
When things become to heavy
Bring you up from your knees
When you're broken down and empty
Even with no words to speak
You are my everything
Even with nothing to keep
You are my everything
I'm more than just aspiring
So keep an open mind
With me tonight, with me tonight
Smile for me if you understand my happiness 
I'll care for you tonight, for you tonight

Just Open The Door

A life with no sun
Makes a soul sad and dreary
You seek the things of this world
Still, no happiness you find
But when Jesus steps in
Your days become brighter
For he changes your heart
And gives you peace of mind

Just open the door 
When the Savior comes knocking
Don't turn him away
Just welcome him in
Take hold of his hand
When he reaches out for you
Just ask for his mercy
And all your sins he'll forgive

Don't sit there in gloom
Heartbroken and weary
For He can rid all the pain
That you feel inside
The things of this world
Only last for a season
But God's gracious love
Will forever abide

So open the door
For the Savior is knocking
Don't turn him away
Just welcome him in
Take hold of his hand
For he's reaching out for you
Just ask for his mercy
And all your sins he'll forgive

You Came to Me Oh Lord

If what I feel is true
Don’t know how to explain
That my heart was heavy once
And didn’t know what to do

I was gloomy and darkness fell
 over me, all at once
I thought that I  was through
And was going straight to hell

Chorus

But then you came to me
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise with you to never part

I need you, Lord, to know
How desperate I did feel
Didn’t think that I would make it
And saw it all so real

The bad became the worse
And the worse became so real
And their teachings that I heard
Never happy would make me feel

Chorus

But then you came to me 
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise with you to never part

My heart became a stone
Didn’t know that I could feel
This LOVE that you give me
And my sins away you peeled

Now I’m grateful, Lord
And full of love I feel
Not only for you, God
But I feel I love the world

And most important, Lord
I feel I Love myself

Because

You came to me, Oh Lord
And entered in my heart
And now that I am free
Promise never from you to part

And become so lovingly
And stretch out my hand to thee

No matter what it is you feel
Prayer will set you free
So believe and faith will never fail
And let God’s love in you prevail

Psalms 121

In the midst of trouble and darkness of the day
I look at the peaceful clouds under the immense sky
Where shall my peace come from?
From the LORD the Creator of the clouds and skies.

In the LORD I will put my hope, my trust.
For I am a seed planted in deep darkness,
Searching for water, searching for light.
I struggle to germinate not knowing neither-
My destination nor my fate of species as a plant.

But in the LORD I will put my faith, my desire.
HE planted me on this soil of the Earth,
HE shall water me and watch over me,
HE shall put me where there is light,
The light that lights my path.

The LORD is my Saviour, my Redeemer.
Even though, my mind understands the sweet way of the world,
And my heart runs and grows weary searching HIS goodness,
My nerves stretch wanting to give up;
My soul shall fear and wait for the LORD.
HE gives me honey much sweeter that the world’s 
HE shall heal the wounds I have been afflicted,
HE shall restore my life and all that was lost,
HE shall bless me with love and its fruits,
HE shall make me lift my head high
In the sight of all peoples.

The LORD is my ROCK,
In HIM I shall not be afraid.

Being Strong

Daddy shut his eyes and cried,
each drop echoed in the waiting room,
the hollow halls echoed
babies crying.

Daddy shut his eyes and cried
his stern eyes looked away
and I asked him, "Daddy why are you crying?"
no reply.

Daddy shut his eyes and cried
not knowing what to do,
I danced in crinoline proper-pink,
first dress Daddy bought,
one I wore to see his smile.


Daddy shut his eyes and cried,
looked at me, smiled,
and gave me a bear-hug
"Your Mom's going to be okay"

Daddy shut his eyes and cried
the clock ticked twice,
out came mom in her wheelchair,
and Dad's eyes dried.

Washed in His precious blood.

Inevitable

Inevitable…

It’s funny how it goes
Some days I just don’t know
Whether I’m coming or where I’m going to
And today is one of those dark spots that I know
I’m evolving into their eternal bleakness
With not much hope left to hold me over…
Until tomorrow

I can’t wait for my salvation
Release from self-condemnation
Guided by beliefs that have no bearing here
On the outcome of my life
Whether or not I am judged by a higher power
Is not a principal I can count on
As reciprocation for good intent is non-existent

I bide my time in this world
Unable to prevent the inevitable
I ride my rhymes through this world
Only to prolong the inevitable
When in the end
The inevitable comes for everyone

Everything can carry over
From one day to the next
From one life into another
So who is there to tell you whether or not, 
Right from wrong…
Just because you think of greener pastures
Doesn’t mean that you will find them here
Or there…

When you need them now
To help fend off the inevitable
The time is now
If I am to put off the inevitable
Because in the end, the inevitable comes for everyone

Is this the end??

Quintessence

                                                           F.J. and Eileen, 
                                                 You're two beauty queens.
                                                I sit and I think my, Oh my.

                                                        I'm a single man,
                                               And I know you're married; 
                                            Somehow you still make me sigh.

                                                        If ever, whenever,
                                                   Will my goddess come?

                                                      Down the same path 
                                                            Will we trod?

                                               Will we share the same moon,
                                                         And distant sun?
                                           Will we come to each others heart?

Someday Baby

Forever and
Ever it seems
You lie
Inside me.
Holding my
Heart. Curled
Into a tiny
Cocoon,
Where you wait
To discover
Light.

....WEEP NOT

The risk added excitement at the time, 
Admittedly a conscious decision was made to commit a crime.
Not yielding to ethical thought, 
Reluctant to believe that the transgression would be caught.
Self-assured I say ....weep not.

Disjoining, conviction, and separation of family,
Sustaining the ability to hold on to sanity.
Not inclined to allow the flowage to over run, 
Conceding to the occurrence; as the moon to the sun.
Ambiguously I say ...weep not.

Stepping into a cement six by six,
The grey and white walls suffocating, as my eyes become fixed.
Stretching out on a narrow bank, hands cradling my head,
Paralyzed with deep immersed reflection of pending dread.
Actuality I say ...weep not. 

Releasing feelings of being maltreated after death,
The seasonal matter has been put to rest.
A moral discretion occurred but I am still alive,
To conquer over an erroneous deviation, I thrive. 
Subsequently I say ...weep not.

New Lease on Life

New Lease on Life…

I’ve got to prove it to myself
And not to anybody else
I’ve got a new lease on life
Sharper than a razor or any knife

I’m in search of better things
Not the fame and fortune they might bring
If I want to live, I’ve got to give
Push myself a little harder
Reach new peaks that hide
I’ll seek them

Surge ahead, run a big risk
There must be more to life than this
Laying around, lost not found
Dusk till dawn without ambition
Breaking loose and free
Eluding the noose again

I’ll have to change my ways but I’ll remain the same
I have dreams like you but they won’t die, they’ll come true someway
More of this and less of that, but I won’t refuse a good excuse
 To through it all away…

If I want to live, I’ve got to give
Push myself a little harder
Reach new peaks that hide, I’ll seek them

I’ll break my neck, keep working hard
It’s better to feast than it is to starve
Do my best to pass every test
In search of better things, like
Reaching new peaks that hide,
I’ll seek them…

Proving it to myself
And not to anybody else
I’ve got a new lease on life
Sharper than a razor or any knife

The Visit

Only bold , italics , 

The Visit

  There in the nightlight a shimmering flame
Ghostly threads the shroud a dimming blur that no shadow bestows
Glowing crown visit me, come share your light, 
Bountiful joy cascade upon my soul
I fear not you visit renowned your wisdom prequel to the word of god.
In you excellence I am in ore
Show me the way, cast you shimmering light, 
Bestow life’s path a golden glow in the name of god
Prescribe a joyful heart true and strong,
I am at your command 
As the giver of life let no waste contaminate seconds score,
As with every breath I am joyful of you.
Proud am I of receiving your blessing
Concise thought reminds every life,
The message shared with another soul is for the living end
Your grace and mercy bestowed on less fortunate hearts.
Condemned all evil to another realm,
Only visited by the scourge of the dammed
God bless my soul as I follow you lord.

From the heart of society

Theres a girl 
she pours out her heart 
gives him everything
changes her hair goes to get 
fat sucked out of her cause no 
one tells her that she really is 
beautiful she goes home to see him in bed
kissing another girl, then get up and smack her around
people ask where she got her brusies and why she hides her face
but behinde that mask hideing her scars is a girl fearing for her life 
scared to go home to that man that just might give her more scars.
Theres a guy 
who takes care of his brother
comes home and covers his brothers ears 
while his mommy and daddy make him fear
fear for his life his mom brings home different guys 
every night, daddy is never home but when he is 
they fear for  there life that just maybe that might be the last day 
the last breath they live to take
Next day he comes home and sees mommy on the floor bleedin 
his little brother tied to the bed stabed in he chest 
he tries to run but trips and falls
three week later the found him floating down the river..
These are the  people we ignore every day 
the ones that cry out for help
 the ones that need us the most..
The ones that are pimped out and dont see there beauty
 the ones that hide the scars that the one they love put on there face
This is our world and society today

Of the Flesh

Overt flaccid appendage between
Oft daily covered thus rarely seen
Impure thoughts corrupt ere begin
My soul hearkens evermore to sin

Loathful orchis of life-giving seed
Oft discharged ere without need
Rigid organ of displeasure’s creed
In obdurate selfish gratifying greed

Without hope deceived by lurid lies
Oft priapic salutes not easily denied
Elicit visions ere my eyes confound
Soliciting lustful fantasies profound

Gesticulate orgasmic vessels of life
Oft nightly purveyor of carnal strife
Phallus erectus manipulative spawn
Coitus interruptus ere inerrant scorn

E’er inane lustful wayward flesh 
Oft petty wasteful juvenile request
Thy soul will through faith’s behest
Sin’s power shall this lost waif test

Intemperate desire innately revived
Oft gratuitous dreams ere contrived
Erotica’s promiscuity haply reborn
Insipid respite ephemeral mourned

Temptation’s casual incessant call
Oft disingenuous will not forestall
Evil’s intent to stealthily dissuade
Willful uprightness ne’er forbade

Inferred double-mindedness lives
Oft hidden only wearily forgives
Once enraptured freedom wanes
This broken spirit averse refrains

Death’s worrying promise abated
Oft victory seemingly invigorated
Yet hope ne'er assured is debated
As life is shamelessly eviscerated  

Till temperance’s finality revealed
Oft delinquent wound is repealed
Thine unseen spirit becomes one
My soul’s resistance is overcome

Hey Bartender

Written 2010


Flashing lights and sounds roll by
Hear the sound of muffled sighs
Sullen words cannot express
Just confess, and lift it off your chest
Told the priest would hear your cries
If you don't feed him blatent lies

Oh he's your only friend 
But he don't want to hear your sins
He's off doing his own thing
But it's far from priestly things
Oh he wont look in your direction
Let alone show you affection
Even when he hears your plea,
"Hey bartender please!"
Gone are all your hopes and dreams
All you ever sought to be
Heard from all across the room
Are many empty pleas,
"Oh won't you pity me?"

You can close your eyes and count to 10
Again and again
But he wont come back to help his fellow men
He was your only friend, but he left you all alone
To wallow in your sin
He failed to listen to your prayer
Now your lost in dark dispair

You can hide behind your cries
But he'll see into your eyes
Until the time you leave his bar
And wobble to your car


Details | Lyric | |

I Will Be Free

I won’t let you break me
I won’t let you win
I won’t let you hurt me
I wont let you crush my soul again
I have let you go 
I have released you 
I will breathe again
I will know a love that’s true
Not the lies that you told
Not the pain you left me with
A love that’s divine
A love that’s truly a gift 
A love I deserve
A love that deserves me
A love that lifts me
A love that sets me free
I will be free again

Oh God

Oh God! Give me light
Please make me fight
Oh God! Make me bright
Please make me rise
Oh God! Bless my heart
Please make the darkness depart
Oh God! Bestow on me love
Please make me realize
That happiness or sadness
Be there sunrises or sunsets
Be it good days or bad…
They happen only to proclaim
Your might and your insight
Please God ! Pour on me peace
Let the turmoil decease!
Make me strong
Make me bold
Today and forever
Make me yours!

MYSTIC PARABLE

Stories dared not whispered, legend of great thinker. 
Artificially created Atlantis, maze search for law-giver. 

Hushed lips speak no evil, silly little monkey cliche. 
Privy ancient knowledge, not clear as light and day. 

So-called peace-loving demigods, closely followed in trace. 
Sexually crazed fools, copying angels fallen from grace. 

Pillars of Hercules within island, dynasty king frenzy awoke. 
Powerful and remarkable, ready to enslave at single stroke. 

Originally thought to be noble, conspicuous reveal greed. 
In route to world domination, struck down by Specialbreed. 

Later time earthquakes and floods, extraordinary violence. 
Single dreadful day and night, massive lost of innocence. 

Intervening super mighty one, so-called wrathful Zeus. 
Manipulation of elements, water and lightning bolts let loose. 

Grand golden wall palace, swept aside sea and sunk below. 
Ironical measured payment, for employment of ruthless blow. 

Swiming through labyrinth of wisdom, vie of the celest'. 
Chancing risk of schism, mighty sequential vignette. 

Perplexed pattern in hide, bloody seal of truth. 
Illuminati repelled, for a time real minoot. 

Message of twisted tongue, langual contrivance. 
Masters' visions swoon, in journey through euphoric trance. 

Loud whisper switch, silence left in wake. 
Souls of denizens burned, in fiery scourching shake. 

Prominent eclectic short order, alien wishbone act. 
Convert of non-belief, fierce zealots' minds impact. 

Lucid broken water reflection, visible-eye agleam. 
Blind finding quarry, standing like obelisk beam. 

Instinctive overriding, a slip into lucidity. 
Telepathic mind connection, recede to infinity. 

Exponential theory, base of schematics. 
Common like maybe, superpower military tactics. 

Voice of bleeding knowledge, fade to obscurity. 
Mystic in strange land, fault found in masters of intricacy. 

Undecipherable rhetoric, great monster on chase. 
Featureless darkness, a threat to human race!

Walking by faith


I'll only walk in my faith,
only in you I lay my weight,
their's no burdens here
since you've relief my fears.
I hold no secrets in life,
you'll protect me without
a blade of any knife and
be the angel of light when 
I walk at night. 

Like Daniel had no fears
in a lion's den, I too will
embrace you my friend.
You helped Moses to part
the red sea and made five
fish and two loafs five 
thousands tea so I know 
you'll do the same for me. 

You're my salvation, so who
shall I fear, the strength of
my rock and my roots are
grounded in you, a friend for
true. In me you reside, you're
the sight of my eyes and the
guard to guide my life. 
Walking by faith as you
define each step I make but
for you my heart waits.

Song of the Troubadour

A troubadour came by my house;
Beneath my window he did sing.
I'd never heard such melody
Or listened to like lyrics ring.
He sang a song I understood,
A song of love for me alone;
And , gazing through the latticed frame,
I knew that I would be his own.

The haunting strains, they wound their way,
Even before I could resist,
My heart was bound by cords of love;
Forever to his song I'd list.
"I long to follow you." I cried,
"Fair, wand'ring minstrel, gay and free;
I want to be your gypsy bride
And sing sweet songs of love with thee."

He bade me follow with a look--
A look my tongue cannot describe--
So tender that my heart leaped up.
"I'll follow you! Oh, yes!" I cried.
T was then I saw, just as I turned 
To go with love forevermore,
What I had thought a laurel wreath
Was but a crown of thorns he wore.

The robe which from his shoulders hung--
It had seemed spotless, white as snow;
But, then I saw it stained with blood.
Yet, still with him I longed to go.
His feet and hands were bruised and torn;
"Oh, who had wounded one so good!"
Just then I saw the lute he played
Was but a rugged cross of wood.

"Oh, Love!" I cried, "Dear, fairest one,
Who dared to harm and hurt you so!"
And then I heard the song again...
"It was for you; did you not know?"
"For me? I do not understand;
T was just today I heard your song."
He turned to speak what now I know.
"My love," he said, "I called you long."

We sing the song together now;
Each day is but a new refrain.
Yet, still I marvel when I hear
A note of joy wrung out of pain.
I did not know when first I heard
His music calling to my heart
That love is not triumphant
Till wounded, pierced and torn apart.

Dedication to unconditional love and soul

I AM the ONE who loves thee
The ONE who cared enough to die for thee

And Yet We Ask for More

Musical interlude

Beneath the sky a majesty
of nature all unending
are vistas of great clarity
and insight transcending.

If we would only see
those precious gifts from Thee
all life in mystery
the sky, the earth, the sea.

And yet we ask for more?

Break..music

There need not be a higher plane
for what we have's a rarity
the sun the moon the stars above
are gifts of great prosperity.

If we would only see
the precious gifts from Thee
all life in mystery
the sky, the earth, the sea.

Oh dare we ask for more?

Faith

I'm halfway down your spine- ready to reconcile my non existent faith in you.
I'm done hiding from the stupidity I call my brain, but what about the writers out there?- they expect me to shine brighter than a star in a dark, shadowy, black night sky.
I'm a poet, just look at my name.
"White Mountain" if you don't understand Spanish, but to my old friends it means "Beast."
Not like a lion, tiger, or bear but like Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant- there's no messing with my three.
I'm in your mind yet your tail-bone says hi like a boomerang- slapping me twice as it returns.
I HAD faith in you, but what goes up must come down, right?
My mental state isn't so great, but I wouldn't call it severe.
You're all that I can see, so does that make me insane?

Pathway to Peace

Deep longing of the soul
Seeking subtle satisfaction
Wandering through the day,
Plagued with unrest
Chasing the wind
Gliding with autumn leaves
Another year to culminate in gloom?

O searching soul
Rest is prepared for you
A bed of hope to lie in
A field of dreams to harvest from
There is but one way
If you will, I beg you,
Do not stray
The path of peace was made for you
…and marked on Christmas day

MORE THAN UNUSABLE DUST

Sometimes it’s hard for us to understand that firmly we can stand with in our creator’s hands.  And if we open our eyes we will be able to see his unfold plans that show us that with his son Jesus, we can be more than unusable dust, but we have to be willing to place within him our complete trust. Oh and our Lord knows the heart he placed in us sometimes makes it easy to give in to giving up when things are just so rough and it seems like the pages of our lives are far to torn, and inside our worn down minds we cannot fully comprehend his gift to us of being re-born, and if we open our eyes we can see that inside his hands he has placed within us the secrets to his unfolded plans with in his word, and through his son Jesus we can be molded and shaped into something greater than being unusable dust,  yes I am more valuable than unusable dust, Oh through this journey of our life’s, if we are willing to open our eyes, we can come out of the darkness into light, and instead of hiding in the crowd shy and weak, wondering for answers and promises to prayers we seek will come true,  we will remember what you did for us on Calvary and we will shout your name, yes we will shout your name in victory, as you hold us in your hands, and share with us all your unfolded plans,  and as you draw us near and place within us a desire to know you and your son , Jesus we will see that we are far more valuable then unusable dust.

and willy off  an overdose 

I'm confused what sould I do I'm learning to love

I'm confused and I don't know what to do I'm learning to 
love you and I don't wan't to lose

Never Let Go

don't speak, just think of me
and i'll be your everything
let's just lay in each other's eyes
for a bit, we can do this

find it in your soul 
to let go
trust me with your heart
it's not hard 
once you can trust me 
believe me 
put your faith 
within me 
i'll love you
and never let go

don't move, get consumed,
and i'll place my trust in you
just lay back and relax
we both know it's not like that

find it in your soul 
to let go
trust me with your heart
it's not hard 
once you can trust me 
believe me 
put your faith 
within me 
i'll love you
and never let go

let's be still, and remain untouched 
let the other give theirs up
you're my one true half, don't forget that
they'll walk away, we'll remain this way

please
never let go
because
you'll never know
and
i just know
cause i'll 
never let go
please

find it in your heart
to keep hanging on
i know this is hard
but it's not wrong
look deep within your soul,
and never let go

Fighting for Faith

I’ve got my
I’ve got my friends at my side! 
I’ve got my
I’ve got my God in front of me! 
I dare you 
I dare you to
Go ahead and Fight me! 

Everyone wants to say 
How wrong I am
Everybody tells me
I’m a fool for what I believe

Hate me! 
Fight me! 
Do what you need
What you need to succeed
But don’t tell me I never told you
What it means to know the truth 

They say my faith
Is a contradiction 
They say that this God
Is in my imagination 
Something I learned from the start 
But what they don’t see 
Is that God is in my heart

Hate me! 
Fight me! 
Do what you need
What you need to succeed
But don’t tell me I never told you
What it means to know the truth

I’ll love you 
Even if you’ll never see what’s true
I wanna be your friend
Through the end 
But I don’t care if you reject me 
I don’t care if you never see
But I’ll always live for Christ
Because He is the reason for my life 

So go ahead and 
Hate me! 
Fight me! 
Do what you need
What you need to succeed
But don’t tell me I never told you
What it means to know the truth

Burnt Tongue

I'm so happy that you can yell at everyone
I'm so happy that you can express youself
I'm so happy that this world isn't what you expected
I'm just so parched  that your so high up on your horse

And now I'm mad, now I'm sad, now I just dont understand
Why you care about two people fallin in love
Why you care if I drink or if I do drugs

I just wanna scream into your eyes
Make you realize that what you say isn't always right
Now right and wrong, it's all opinion
Black and white, yes I think they deserve, to be colors too
So how about me and you, is there any truth
You cant change the world with one voice if the tongue is burned

I'm so happy that you can climb a mountain high
I'm so happy that you think its my job to be the wife
Yeah I'm so happy that your such a hypocrit
I'm so grateful for you to tell me lies

And now I'm mad, now I'm sad, now I just dont understand
Why its your job to fix us all
And preach your words to a raging band
Someday you will see 
That there is more than just degree
In this world that we praise peace
Peace is lost in the sea

Imprisoned

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

The pain is so rapidly accelerating
Again and Again this guilt is inflating
These thoughts are overwhelming!
I desperately need to escape this feeling

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

Forever bounded by this relentless cage
When will I be able to turn this page
Forgiveness I can never win
I will always be imprisoned by this sin within

Forever this internal hell torments me
It’s driving me deeper into insanity 
Why am I such a sinful man
Will I ever escape the darkness of who I am

I need to find just one escape from this place
Can’t live with this never ending disgrace
The disappointing looks forever haunt me
I need a Savior that can free me
Can you please come and find me

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

Forever bounded by this relentless cage
When will I be able to turn this page
Forgiveness I can never win
I will always be imprisoned by this sin within

I always ask myself why
How could I let this time pass by
Please God save me from this hell
I now realize just how far I’ve fell

Why is it so dark in this cold room
Everything I feel is taking me to such a horrible doom
Will I ever make or mend this horror inside
Or will I always be known as the one who lied

Thought For Today

Thought For The Day:

I'm so thankful to see another day with all the stress in this world; having the strength to face another day is considered an accomplishment for me. I thank God Yahweh for his comfort, and strength, and the angels he sends along the way. Today is a new day a chance to start over again, and go for my goals to rise from the ashes of yesterday, and breath letting go of all the anxiety of those wish to hold me back, and continue to go for my dream; yes I have a dream, a dream to succeed, to be a visionary, to come up with a boldness, to laugh at the people who didn't believe in me. My eyes are opening, and I am beginning to see the light, I have risen from the depts. Of despair. I am not who people say I am, I am who God says I am; I am victorious.

heaven

Every time i look around, yeah
i see you because i  miss your face
i don`t know what to do
cause im so broken, oh im so broken 
and im hurting
i dont know why
i guess its because im missing you, yeah
missing you

when i look behind
and you're not there 
i ask myself where have you gone 
then i think 
to a better place with the savior our king

I'm missing you 
i don`t know what to do 
i wish i would have said goodbye
you meant so much to me 
and our family

when i look behind 
and you're not there 
i ask myself 
where have you gone 
then i think
to a better place with the savior our king

Chains

                         Click, Clack
              The sound of their chains dragging the floor.
                                 Chains
                  My ancestors were bound by their feet and legs.
                                      Chains
                      journeying to a foreign land.
Childern and women on one side, Men on the other.
            Brothers can't help their sisters, wives, or mothers they can't help one another.
                      Hush hear that sound low in the distance.
                               Swing low sweet chariot.
They sing a mighty hymn hoping and praying to one day go back home to the motherland.
                                                 Chains
Together side by side every day and night down in the belly of a ship so long can't remember the last sunrise.
                                             Chains
                  Rusting, burning into the flesh but the slaves hang on.
                                                Chains
One day They'll break, the slaves will be free because of their faith, and fight.
                                         God will lead them to a better life.
                    Freedom, Freedom that great day when my ancestors broke free of those chains.

Turn the searchlight on

Another tribute to John and Carla Sherman.


Turn the searchlight on

Turn the searchlight on
Let it bath you in it’s light
Take a look into you
Just look with all your might
Let the world be round you
But don’t pay it no mind
Just turn around and look at you
You’re not too hard to find.

Don’t ask so many questions
Beside the point these be
You have to do the looking
So very endlessly
The looking’s never over
It be your life, that’s all
Then one day when the fever breaks
It’s all so wonderful.

You have to do the looking
That’s all you have to do
Just take a look into you
Oh please just look at you
You must use self -reliance
Can’t count on no one else
The looking is the only way to health.

You don’t have to look for Gurus
No need for all the books
All you really have to do
Is stop and take a look
Then when the fear of life is gone
You’ll see life how it is
Just look, look, look each chance you get
I can only tell you this.

A New Day

They look at me and all they see is porcelain
A fragile girl breaking within
Underestimated of my highest potential
Reaching too far will be my downfall
But I won’t listen to the voices
Saying I can’t handle these life choices
I’ve seen what I’ve seen
And I’ve done what I’ve done
Can’t erase my mistakes, just got to move on
People point and laugh, but they don’t know the real me
They see who I was, not who I can be

Let me run wild and free
Live out love and just let it be
The past is gone, a new day has come
My story has now only begun

I’ll shatter the walls of vulnerability
Let them fall to open up possibility
I’ve been running for so long I don’t know where to go
Something in my soul has been begging me to know
What have I got to be afraid of?
What have I got to be hiding from?
I’ve got nothing else to lose
So I’ll steer this boat any direction I chose
I’ll show them I’m more than just porcelain
There’s unbreakable strength coming from within

Let me run wild and free
Live out love and just let it be
The past is gone, a new day has come
My story has now only begun

Isn’t it amazing?
Isn’t it great?
How history stands the test of time
Repeating itself every time
Proving some things never change
That we’re the actors and the world’s the stage
It seems like our work is futile
Like our efforts aren’t even worth while
But we chose what we say what we do
We walk down the path we chose

Let me run wild and free
Live out love and just let it be
The past is gone, a new day has come
My story has now only begun

Broken Vows

NOOO!! 
EEEAAAAAHHHH!

You threw my past
In front of my face
You remind me of all my sins 
Telling me it’s all too late 

I’ve been through hell and back
This pride that I’ve built 
Crumbled with everything I lack 
Feels like I can do nothing on my own
Every day I feel so Alone! 

God! I need you Now!
I know I’ve broken every vow! 
I’ve placed you so far away
I regret this every single day 

This journey has broke me down
But it’s set my feet on solid ground
Every step changed who I am
I’ll never be the same again 

This heart knows every kind of pain
It’s felt every strain
I used to think I could be a man
But now I know I just need Your plan

God! I need you Now!
I know I’ve broken every Vow! 
I’ve placed you so far away
I regret this every single day

Just cause I’m lost
Doesn’t mean I’ll never be found
Just cause I’ve died inside 
Doesn’t mean I’ll never stand on solid ground 
Don’t you judge me
By my past!
Grace will always last! 

God! I need you Now!
I know I’ve broken every Vow! 
I’ve placed you so far away
I regret this every single day

My Easter Prayer

~My Easter Prayer~ You came into this world A tiny baby A king who needed no crown Here to save all sinners A natural born leader You lead by example Lived what you preached You love all Never judge a soul Healing the sick Feeding the hungry Bringing peace and joy You never turn anyone away Watching over us Even to this day You are a good listener You guide us on our way In troubled times You are always there To carry us through Like “Foot Prints in the Sand” Sometimes we may stray Yet you are still there Ready to embrace us Loving us all the same When we ask for help You give us what we need It may not always be what we ask for And we may not always understand Yet it works out in the end You know me inside out I feel you with me No matter where I am I Love you so much I know I don’t say it enough In this life I have been blessed With many more blessings to come I know While at times I ask for so much I have forgotten to say two simple words That says so very much So here I am right now to say Thank You Lord With this My Easter Prayer Love Always, Jean Bonella

All the way

When I got saved
Jesus saved me all the way
when He came into my heart
that fine day
The Holy spirit 
came in my soul to stay
when Jesus saved me 
he saved me all the way

I can stand right on my feet
and shout out loud
I don't care if its in front of a sinner crowd
I'm excited in my soul
and excited is how I'll stay
when Jesus saved me 
He saved me all the way

The Passion

The Passion They called it “The Passion”— His passion for lost souls; Crucified and murdered For so called religious goals. Christ’s passion for the hurting, Tempest-tossed soul; Sacrificed His earthly life; Man’s eternity His goal. Chorus The Passion and the cross Is a story to be told, Until this world ends And judgment unfolds. A carpenter turned preacher With no sword in hand Was led to His death By Judas’ evil band. Taken in the evening From Gethsemane’s garden; Hung from a cross That we may be pardoned. To be cruelly beaten Without human reason; Mocked and spat on In a prophetic season. Made to wearily carry His instrument of death; A heavy wooden cross; Laboring for breath. Crucified with wood and nails, The objects of His trade, Because He preached His Father’s love; His Passion was forbade.

Esther Arbuthnott 1847 Her Ancient Photograph

          ESTHER ARBUTHNOT--1847 From Her Ancient Photograph
While the rain is falling gently on the roof it makes the sound,
of a time that's long forgotten, though it seems to hang around,
I can hear you breathing lightly from an Irish dream I've known,
it has come to Pennsylvania where you've found me here alone.

All the way from County Down, you were a dream I had to find,
though so long you were forgotten, you were always on my mind.
In your photograph your eyes are reaching out, perhaps for me,
I can feel you when I see you, but I never really see.

In your Book of Shadows, reading, is another person's sin,
but you open it to anyone who's wanting to come in.
There's a candle always burning in my window late at night,
and I'd love you in a moment, but that wouldn't make it right.

Can you hear the raindrops falling? County Down's so far away,
or perhaps it's just forgotten, like a dreary Irish day,
I can feel it when you're smiling, in the Heaven of your eyes,
love is gone and you've been dying, and it's then I realize,

you have found it all in Heaven, and it's such a part of you,
all the sad you had been living in this life will have to do.
it's an Irish kind of feeling, to be dying when you're dead,
and a lot of Irish whiskey only lightens up your head.

Christmas Jubilee

Christmas was always about God for me,
It was memories, inner fullness…Begotten-Boy.
Because God was the point, God’s Son died bravely.

Christmas was about giving pure heart’s bouquet.
Finding dreams, wishes, and bringing home joy,
Christmas was always about God for me.

Father’s gift held the secret of wisdom set free
Of hoping and caring and loving enjoyed.
It is about God, Calvary, and forgiveness, you see.

When December wonder is past, does Christ flee?
Flee from the soul, leaving one on self to rely, lost envoy -
Truth.  Christmas was always about God for me.

Once a year Christmas marks God’s gift sent for me.
By faithfully gluing my lost self to Jesus, I found joy.
Because God sacrificed His Son, I am set free.

I know that in heaven there was great jubilee.
When this hollowed out husk of me, by sin destroyed
Found Christmas to be about God and me.
I know it is so; my faith sets me free.

God's Still Looking Out For You

    GOD'S STILL LOOKING OUTFOR YOU
He still holds the key to your living day to day,
He still feels the pain of your sorrow.
He still has the love we all need along the way,
and He knows we've got to face tomorrow.
He still dresses lilies, and blesses fields with clover,
over in the meadow, where you used to roam,
don't you know He's never forgotton one lily,
in that place you used to call home.

He still helps you struggle with the load you must bear,
He still dresses lilies and clover.
He's still with you even when you think He's not there,
and even when you're thinking it's over.

Everything's alright, God's still looking out for you.
He still dresses lilies, and He's looking out for you.
Everything's alright, God's still there in His Heaven.
God's still looking out for you.

Trust You

What now I ask as we go again
Wanting to believe in you my friend
But you keep playing with my heart
I am afraid you will tear my world apart

I dream of a time when I can trust you
When I know you want to be true
But I can not let my walls fall
When you do not feel anything at all

So I wait and hope for the day
When true love will come my way
I know it is out there it will find me
Then I will open my heart and be free

Answered Prayer

Rising up like sweet essence
From this earthen clay pot
Into the Silver Bowl
Of this Silver Bowl, the Almighty inhales the insides
Before giving this final decision
And the decision?
Mercy.
Not guilty.
Life eternal.

BEFORE IT RAINS

Taking hope out of a gloomy day
is like living without a hopeful heart;
and waiting for miracles without praying
is bringing on a specter of infidelity,
which disrupts my daily living...
making me ponder faith with distrust!

Before it rains, I hope for a rainbow at five...
believing that it will there for me to admire,
not merely imagining, but envisioning its beauty;
what is hidden from the eyes shouldn't be a mystery,
and this Humankind has created myths and legends
for the ones lacking the sixth sense!

Embarking on that journey of incognito,
solely relying on this overburdensome ego,
causes me to experience inquietude
in a most unfovarable latitude;
and freedom is confined in short miles,
when my ship comes to an halt for guidance!

Before it rains, I'll see myself securing the anchor,
and step on the pier of the safest harbor...
waving at the fading rainbow over the refulgent horizon;
taking pride and remembering the grueling fright
of a captain who never displayed a doubt...
even when the storm dashed the agitated ocean!

Resolution

Resolution…

Another cliché ridden promise to be broken
One more silent thought; the words remain unspoken
But still I make another resolution
More to myself than any other…another resolution
To be kept or to be broken
Another promise left unspoken…resolution

The time is right the time is now
Sixty minutes left to change
This time of night feeling so run down 
And unable to re-arrange that feeling
I’ve counted my blessings 
Washed misfortunes blood from my hands
Repented for all of my sins
Bowed to my knees a mortal man

…Another cliché ridden promise to be broken
One more silent thought; the words remain unspoken
But still I make another resolution
To be kept or to be broken
Another promise left unspoken…resolution

Twelve Thirty-One of Twenty Twelve
I am counting down the hours
Ten past Five, then Five past Ten
And then Eleven bells will ring…
But I can’t make it to the midnight hour
Can’t ring in the fresh New Year
Can’t live down the daily stresses
And conquer the things I fear
And as the clock at once strikes midnight
I hear the tolling of the bell
But my eyes remain unopened
As I try to break the spell

I give up that which breaks me
I have to clear my head and heart
Find a new direction and let it take me
Before the past tears me apart
Another year has came and went
In recent memory, one of the worst
Again, as mortal man I must repent
Pay the cost for those I’ve cursed

…Another cliché ridden promise to be broken
One more silent thought, the words remain unspoken
But still I make another resolution
To be kept or to be broken
Another promise left unspoken…resolution
Close my eyes and make a wish
As the lights all fade to black…
And in that silence the truth is born…my resolution

Port of Call

Port of Call


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

with the breath of the ocean a caressing balm,
soothing pained memories away,
to the swaying of a solitary palm.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

feeling the brushing away of all past turmoil,
on a quest for solace, ever so hard to find,
yet comforted by the crashing of the waves,
as the tide cleanses all pain,
and leaves despair far, far behind.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

drenched in a sea-breeze of mist,
that hushes the ache of bygone moons,
tasting the salty tang on my lips,
as the burnished sun,
over the distant horizon,
swoons,

and dips.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

searching, ever searching,
for a slice of solitude,
as memory bids a final adieu,
reaching under the sea so vast,
and seeking comfort in the depths,
while embracing,
the tomorrows to come,
wishing that they be true.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

seeing my truths drown,
as they slip beneath the turquoise waters,

feeling my heart ablaze,
with a passion that rarely falters.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

yet knowing that I am home at long last,
wishing the waves would wash away,
the defences that once stood,
like an impregnable wall.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

I have found, at long last,

my final port of call.

Reliance

Lord why is it that,
When I am behind foreign lines
I cling to you as if Im  running out of time
Meditating on your words
as is if it was the only antidote to my curse
And even though the unknown land is uneasy
and my earthly sense of security may no longer exist
It is your voice which becomes the softest kiss
and your releaving words become an addiction I can not resist
So when waves of anxious worries try to persist
I must use my 5 senses, to feel your presence,
Because,
The fear of losing sight of you and not being focused
Is so horrific
I do not grit my teeth and clinch my fist
Instead I get on my knees and to you I submit


I see kids dying to be seen
Saying daddy "watch me!", Constantly
There are,
 People making a declaration
with their clothes or  beliefs
Screaming out of desperation
"I am here, look at me!"
We all crave this attention
 It why we make big scenes
But there is this realization
That we were made to seek
A constant confirmation
We're alive and been seen
The only complication
That allows us to sink
Is the clear distraction
when we start to think
That our peers accept-ion
Is all that we we need
Cant you see,
This goes back to Adam and Eve
We were built with a longing
 To Have a strong Identity
And be in the center of the ring
Having the splendor of the king
Christ offers us those things
And he is more than willing
But we keep declining, though
He waits for us, in his quiet place
He shows his many faces in so many different places
He paces out outside of our door way
As we race through our days
thats why we forget  to communicate
But When We simply pray 
And contimplate his words
We take the negative 
and turn it into a positive verse
A plain reminder we need to put him first

A Silent Prayer- Shore of Visions Loom

“Jesus speak unto my heart, with your calm serenity.
Your joyful presence all about, sets my mind at ease.
Guide me with divine direction, a blessing given me.
With inspiration light my path, so my eyes can see.

Jesus to you I draw closer, as my spirit you set free.
The tender kindness of your mercies, forever I receive.
Influence my thoughts upon this morn, in you I do believe.
As you now set my course, across life’s stormy seas…”

Lord cast my eyes on the shores of a vision:
an ocean of dreams awaits to sail; 
casting aloft into this early morn.
You’ve set my course and my destination,
avoiding the reefs of black betrayal,
rising above the darkened seas of scorn.

On winds of direction Lord guide my vessel,
true faith in quest of love’s ambitions:
sailing along into forevermore.
Headed across those uncharted waters,
riding the waves of life’s transitions,
predestined to greet that hallowed shore.

I feel it drawing near, shore of visions loom.
A yearning deep inside, I’ve felt for many moons.
Through oh so many years, lost in stormy gloom.
Dreams I’ve fantasized, shore of visions loom.

For many a nights being purged of darkness:
sailing through the ides of twilight;
I feel your Holy Spirit now on board.
When there in the distance I see the shoreline, 
sparkling joys of  glorious delights:
it’s truly closer than it’s ever been before!

I feel it drawing near, shore of visions loom.
My dreams are realized, knowing that it’s soon.
All my fallen tears, into the depths entombed.
Jesus is calling me to fly: shore of visions loom…!

                                                       Brother Christian

Just Dream

there's a dream inside
to possible the impossibility
to make sense a non sense
to believe the unbelievable
i think that what makes a faith is

there's a dream inside
to bliss the unhappiness
to let go a depression
to release frighten
i think that what makes a dream alive

it's harder to breathe
when you keep on waiting on your dream
but it's easier to live
when you believe in your dream

dare to be different
dare to be the unusual
dare to believe the unbelievable
i think that's what makes your dream alive

when your days are weary...just dream
when your nights are cold...just dream
when your heart's breaking...just dream
because life is part of a dream

just dream

Hail To The Savior

Hail to the Savior!  Born in a manger of hay.
He came to ransom poor, lost sinners;
He came to take their sin away.
Oh, hail Him, hail the Son of God,
Sing praise to His name.
Born in Bethlehem, the city of David,
Of a virgin born upon that day.
Born the king, and yet He’s born so humbly,
In a stable, there in the manger He lay.
Hail to the Savior!

Hail to the Savior!  Risen up from the grave!
He rose to conquer death’s dominion;
He rose, our souls to eternally save.
Oh, hail Him, hail the Lamb of God,
Sing praise to His name.
His blood, the pure eternal sacrifice,
Was shed upon the rugged tree.
They crucified Him on that mountain;
He arose from sin to set us free.
Hail to the Savior!

	These words written to “Ave Maria.”

My Mountain

My mountain is tall
cant even see the top
I climb and climb
sometimes I slip and fall 
or hit rock bottom
but I keep going
never stopping
every now and then 
I get company
they never stick around
but the times we have
are never to be forgotten
wether they helped me climb higher
take a step back
or stopped me from climbing at all
one day I'll be able to see the top
Ill stand on my mountain
and yell so that every soul
living or dead
can hear me yell the words
I Made It!!!

Oh Jesus, sweet and loving Jesus.
Savior of the world, light into my dark.
Precious, precious Jesus.
Who can compare with what You've done?
Who can truthfully say that You're not the One?

Strength to the weak, rest for the weary.
Awesome, Awesome Lord.
Who can deny Your supernatural ways?
Who can turn down Your outstanding grace?
I love Your name, it's like no other.
I love the way You call us Your sisters and brothers.

"perfect design"

You live your life to honor Him

But instead you lead a life full of shame and sin

take your beliefs and need for repetition

and continue to walk in the wrong direction

feed your lies to the brainwashed child

who believes they are a free thinker but are instead just a figure of your "perfect 
design"

A scheme that you learned from your father

And have passed on to your sons and your daughters

Repeat the cycle and spin the wheel

Continue to live your life of evil

Brainwash the child, don't let him think on his own

Fill his mind with thoughts that are now his own

Don't allow him to break the mold

Rape his mind and leave him blind to follow the footsteps of your "perfect design"

TIME FOR RESPITE

        TIME FOR RESPITE
Searching through summer; the time for respite;
hot from mid-morning turns warm through the night,
lazy you're feeling, but love doesn't care
if you're reflecting on what has been there.

Memories fade to the heat of the day,
there comes someone who is wanting to say
"How much I love you," and summer must wait
love does not care if it's if early or late.

These are the good times, the reason we dream.
These are the bad times, the reason we scream.
Searching through summer, the time for respite,
Love comes along and then summer feels right.

Faith Healer

The odor is intolerable
Like a foul beast clinging to the end 
I can barely subdue its subterfuge 
But here I am, 
I’m standing here of sound and mind
Waiting for the time that answers my own questions

Can it race with the fires of Orc?
Doubtful, but it can jog steadily can’t it?
The weather is awful, filled with sounds
Penetrating a document not written
It pains me to fight through the night
Not because it’s dark, but because I am just a shadow.

Lester drives but
Motional lasts forever
Still driving
Still crying
And slowly dying as time waves on
Like oceans that can’t be seen.

Nobody cares and everyone listens
Ironic, like a bible that holds lies and deception
Can its will be pierced?
Can freedom stay free?
Is it worth it to stay hooked when everyone around
Seeks liberty?

Aim in Life

My life, I now do see, 
Is all in vain, but Thee, 
I wish to dedicate, 
My life for all eternity. 

I once did wonder why
I'd come to life and sighed, 
But now I know my task, is to 
Live for you and always fight.

I'd cry and cry to feel,
The sense of aim, so dear, 
But as I searched my soul, 
I knew that I was nowhere near.

But when thy presence came, 
I realized my aim, 
And did resolve to do
What pleased Thee rather than complain.

So now I do declare
That I shall always glare, 
And draw more souls to share
The pleasures of Thy kingdom, rare.

Daddy Now Please Pray With Me

Daddy now, please pray with me,
for today I'm sailing stormy seas.
I know you say you're but a man,
who tries to live the Master's plan.

I'm weathering gray storms, except a few,
 and the turmoil would drown me, if not for you.
The wind is so strong, the waves are so high,
Tattered sails against the sky!

And I recall you telling me, 
of Jesus Christ,  Who calmed the seas.
And yes, small faith can the mountains move,
and how He died His love to prove.

So Daddy now, please pray with me,
to God's sweet Son, Who dwells in me.
For I am daughter of a man,
and weak at times and cannot stand
against these tides of shifting sands.

You say, "He's still upon His throne",
and with our prayers, I'm not alone!
And God is good and loves me still,
He will offer strength to swim these swells.

Oh Daddy now, please pray with me,
Some choices I made were not of Thee.
At times I've wandered and gone astray,
I feel somehow I've lost my way.

Tell me again my right hand he still holds, 
and how in heaven the streets are gold, and
once we're there no one is old because now 
Jesus holds my soul!

Daddy now please pray with me like when I 
was a child of three beside my bed on bended knees. 

And perhaps somehow these words I write, may move 
another to change their lives, for Jesus loves me this
I know and his blood has washed me white as snow. 

And when you've said "In Jesus Name" I feel brand 
new and not the same, so daddy now please pray with me
though I am grown and no longer three. 

He'll lift me up on wings of love and forgive me
of all the wrong's I'v done! Then I can drop my anchor
deep and mend white sails on peaceful seas!

Scary Feeling

I feel like sl-lit,
i wanna flip.
Let my words rip,
come take a sip.

My phone keeps on ringing,
its chesney hawkins singing.
I get this scary feeling,
she's gönnä nail me for stealing.

I look at the sealing,
wish i knew what was the meaning.
I must start to pray,
every single day.

I'm smoking myself to death,
i need to take a deep breath.
Please don't make me fall,
i don't wanna end it all.

The Calm After

The storm in my eyes has been silenced by the presence of your soul. 
I close them tight and I pray and pray that I never let go. 
Though we've only just met, I know you by heart. 
Throughout lifetime's of separation, this now feels like the start. 
I want to melt away with you inside our small heavenly sea. 
As I peer into your spirit, all that I see is me. 
I do not know where you came from. 
I sometimes cannot believe that you are real. 
My heart will allow me to do nothing, 
but ride with how I feel. 
You are my calming waters 
though you scare me half to death. 
Afraid to close my eyes 
I catch myself holding my breath. 
For if you disappear, 
you will take away my dreams. 
You have absolutely no idea, 
what you already mean to me.

Trapped

A prisoner of darkness
Was all I could be.
Trapped and alone inside
Along a blackened sea
No one to hold me
To keep me alive
Completely abandoned
No reason to survive.

Then there was a light
Small but getting brighter
It drowned out the darkness
And made me a fighter. . .
Before i'd go with everything
And let them chain me down
Now I start to question them
I start to keep my ground.

Why should I let them stab me?
And see my blood run free
There's a reason that I need to live
To let myself be me.
No one holds me down
Without paying a price.
Why should they anger me
Then expect me to be nice?

I now... Have a beating heart
And a gleam in my eyes
Someone to kiss and hug me
And keep my soul alive.

Indian burial ground

The Indian rounds the corner of the room
Seeing the sadness through the eyes of a girl
There are a lot of things about this world that we don't know 
the truth behind humanity the heartbeat of ones last breathe
or the pain one suffers mentally 

I don't even know if people can see the truth
Or if they shut themselves out of the real and into the fake
We all know the fakness of what a human can put off
We all know the sickness one stores inside their skull
Can we all see what's going on? this day I see some that are still blind
 some that are so blind they can not imagine! 

The things one can do
The things one may hide

A life filled with questioning
A life full of hate and despair 
A life of several lies
A life with no reason of existing

A series of depression
A time of regret
A worry of fear 

A fear of ourselves 

An unwritten book with no pen to write with

Voice of reason

I Belong To You

I thought that I could run away from You, 
Separate myself from You, 
Hide where You can't find me or read a single thought I think.
But I failed, because You always slip into my memory, 
Every now and then.

As much as I try, I cannot forget You.
You are too persistent to be remembered,
In people I meet, in places I go.
It's hard to ignore that You are everywhere.

I realized even for a minute, nothing would take me 
Away from You.
For You will always be lingering, waiting,
For me to come around and accept that You are mine,
That You are inside of me,
That I am a part of You and You, a part of me.
That we are bound forever. 

Because You have left a great part of You in my heart,
And that is Your voice 
That whispers ' I love You' and 'Come home',
In the darkest rainy nights of my existence.
Nourishing my weakening soul,
A warm blanket for my cold and unfeeling heart,
A comforting light that illuminates my gray world.

And I need all of it.
I can't pretend anymore that I could be on my own.
I have known how it was to smile with You,
When bright summer days shine upon my life 
And You were there telling me, 
'I love You' and 'I'm happy to be with you.'

And I miss You, being with You,
Everything about You.
Your generosity, kindness and warmth,
Your light.
The joy that You bring, the hope that You give,
And most of all, I miss the love that You let me experience.

It makes a big difference when I don't acknowledge 
How much You care for me,
And how much You wanted me to believe that You really love me.
And will always love me, 
In spite of me? Yes.

If I only stop fighting how much I also feel for You.
Because once upon a summer time, 
My soul was filled with so much joy and certainty 
To say these out loud:
'I also love You very much', 
'We will always be together, forever...'

I remember them now more clearly.
I belong to You.
And I am happiest when I am with You.

So now there will never be any hesitations,
I am coming back to You, dearest Father,
Never again will I allow myself 
To doubt who You are to me, and I, to You.
I commit myself to loving You,
And honoring You, my Lord,
Now and forever, and for all eternity.

Euphorianah

The sapphire-dust sun of what-were dreams
Swallow the scene, setting In the forsaken east
All I see, all I know fades into the reaper's monotone grey 
Death come near me, by my only choice 
My wintry desperation subdued, clings to they silent voice
The dusk reveals my truest nature before her blank argentine eyes
Life; the darkest of all tragedies, Romances' malady
Let me feel your breath in this frozen air
Your pulse shorter than ever
Despair's void grows inside me
Without, you I will live no longer

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

The winterwinds' tears fall on me
With whispers of you, someone I once knew
No matter in a dream or reality
Sweet tranquillity, stay with me
Calming the fears within
But the pain remains

The silvemoon's fears shine on you
Thine eyes search for mine
Oh how they shine, so deathly blue
If sacrifice needs a price
The dagger shows-
Heaven is calling us tonight

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

Covered in shadowy illusions 
Shall we dance?
Death will be lie dominion
You are my only queen
Euphorianah

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

Just let me die
If I cannot see
Euphorianah 
This night

Where's the color in the black and white

Dedicated to my friend Jordan

Things always seem to fade
Fade into the grey
And it makes me wonder
Where is the color
In this world of black and white
Where is the color
It makes me wonder

You say I’m ignorant 
For what I believe
There can’t be a God
In all the bullsh** lies
But what if
Just think of this
There’s a bigger plan than what you
See

So many questions
Go unanswered 
So many things go unsaid
We go through these motions
Never questioning what we see
While there’s scars on our wrists
There’s a devil on my shoulder
Whispering to me
Reminding me of the pain inside
This life’s a battle
We search for the angel 
On the other side
But the demon screams
You are nothing

You say I’m ignorant 
For what I believe
There can’t be a God
In all the bullsh** lies
But what if
Just think of this
There’s a bigger plan than what you
See

I refuse to believe
That there’s nothing after this
We go through this life
Fighting to survive
There must be a point to this
I know I’m human
And I know I’ll always fail
Though I give it my best
I know I need His grace
If I’ll make it to another night

You say I’m ignorant 
For what I believe
There can’t be a God
In all the bullsh** lies
But what if
Just think of this
There’s a bigger plan than what you
See

His grace he freely gives
His blood was spilt for me
I still wonder why
Cause I knew I deserved to die
I will give you my heart
And all you ask of me
Cause I know home is in front of me
My mansion up in the skies
Heaven’s gates are opened wide

You say I’m ignorant 
For what I believe
There can’t be a God
In all the bullsh** lies

You say I’ll do my best
To get great and famous
Be loved by so many
Become a memory
But then you die
What next?

God's Cinderella

My spirit wandered, sore, abused,
By selfish choices badly bruised;
A heart that stumbled through the years,
Lame from its sins and filled with fears.
The world with all its dreadful ills
Belabored my poor, weakened will
Till down death's path I made my start,
A little, lonely, lame-girl heart.

I lost my dreams amid the trash;
My expectations cruelly dashed,
I waited for the ogre Fate
To lower on my mean estate.
Then One came riding through the dark;
He labored over hope's dim spark
And fanned the embers to a flame;
He called my heart by a new name.

No longer go I lame through life,
Through lonely days of anxious strife;
My footsteps fall in steady pace
Upheld and firm by God's own grace.
I trust Him now to guide me till
I reach my home, God's perfect will.
I've peace since I made this new start
With God's glass slipper on my heart.


Details | Lyric | |

A Prayer

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to keep
I also start to wonder why
That wretched god won’t let me die
I am so lost, so alone
Empty
Is this part of some cruel, vast
Eternal plan
To keep me distant
Darkened
Desolate
Despairing
And I find myself asking
Who do you think you are?

Bury Me Breathing

Bury me breathing.
With my heart still beating.
Dig a hole into the sand.
This was something I didn't plan.
Forgive me.
My time is done here.
This is my final good-bye.
I've written you a letter to explain myself.
My confession to you.
I want you to be able to understand why it's my time to go.
I'll always love you, that's something I want you to know.
Just bury me alive, I'm broken and tried.
There's nothing left for me.
I've given myself completely.
I found what I'd been searching for all along. 
My time has come and gone.
Just promise me that you'll stay strong.
I'm sorry that it had to end this way.
I'll never forget the day.
The first time we locked eyes.
I heard God whisper, "Love her." 
So I gave you my heart and my soul to keep. 
You kept it all along, so whenever you feel weak and feel like you can't press on.
Remember that I held you close to my heart all along.
Stay strong.
So just bury me breathing.
My time has come to leave.
Please don't grieve.
Just remember the precious memories we shared and that I always cared for you.
When you feel like falling allow the memories to be backbone that gets you through.

Don't cry.
Not a single tear.

The moment we shared are something I'll never forget.
I'll miss you surely.
But one day soon you'll again come faec to face with me.
And when that time comes forever will be in front of us and we can continue to grow 
together like I always swore to you.
I'll give you everything that you need.
So baby just breathe.
It's my time to leave.
MY heart still beats for you and it'll never stop.
I wish you could come with me, but it's not your time to leave.
You ahve so much ahead of you.
I just hope you'll always remember and dream of what we could be.
You were the one for me.
I'm sorry I have to leave so prematurely.
I'll you kiss you one last time as you bury me alive.
Good-bye my bride.

Church

The writing in this book
Tells me I’m a sinner, not a saint
The preacher gives the sermon
And tells us who to hate

The cold cathedral walls
Are ringing with those lies
They tell us there’s a place we’ll go
If we don’t listen, when we die

They make us profess our wrongs
And become one full of rights
The organ plays, the choir hums
Singing of him, who is our light

They call for justice when we know
They are just wolves in disguise
We help the ones, who help us
And ignore the other cries.


Details | Lyric | |

Masquerade

Unalterable sins,
needing a blood covering.
Modernistic attitudes and views,
that diminish the cross' message
being directed toward sparse filled pews.
While amplifying ideas,
misdeeds, lay hidden behind a mask.
Surfacing stories of alienation,
a pretender brought to task.
Stripped now of facade,
exposed to all, is Satan's drool.
Masquerading in darkness,
all see, an unrepentant fool.
"And be sure, your sins will find you out" 

Numbers 32:23

Living Proof Of A Miracle

Living Proof Of A Miracle
	
God makes it happen…

	In 2005, I was insecurely denied…my dreams broken and heart shattered 
as the devil tried to work beneath overtime.  The doctor walked in and said, “I’m 
sorry but you have cancer.”  The thoughts in my mind left my body bruised and 
battered.
	In 2008, my condition went from moderate to severe.  I had to make a 
change; I decided to get saved.  My God then forgave…but the thoughts in my mind 
had me askin’, “Why is life worth livin?”  So I continued back down the road of 
insecurities and sinnin’…
	When 2009 came, the surgeon walked in, again, put his head down and 
looked back up at me…I just kept thinking, “What could it be?”  He said, “Sweetie, 
I’m sorry!”  Your cancer is going full blown and it can’t be healed.”  I let the tears fall 
as God caught them saying, “I know you know I’m real!”  “So turn to me and I’ll set 
you free, but I couldn’t turn yet cause’ I was so stuck on me.
	So here I was in 2010, stuck with an illness, loss of a job, sleepless and 
fearful nights, and sickly sobs…sometimes it takes a disaster to come into your 
home, trying to break down your state of mind and get into your soul.  This 
darkness that surrounded me, was feeling much too cold.
	So, I prayed for a new direction, and they sat and prayed with me…On 
August. 11, 2010 the surgeon walked in with tears in his eyes and said, “Honey, 
you’re free…I gave my life to him.  God has healed my cancer and he can heal you 
just the same.  No matter what the situation, just be sure to have full faith.

	For I am, living proof of a miracle…

Broken Man

No excuses needed 
Nor apologizes 
This is who I am as a person, a human being and the man that I intend to be. Take your thoughts and beliefs and keep them for yourself. I am this man that you see before you without shame.
Not a shell of myself, maybe rough around the edges that seem to cut through the surface of my personal imperfections.  My life and struggles has made me, prepare me for unexpected disappointments. So that I could just smile with tears in my eyes holding my head, no matter the circumstances.  I make no excuses for myself every tear and worried thoughts are accounted for compared to the scares that cover parts of my body. I’m a fighter in every aspect of any thought or words form.
I represent the broken men who believed in something once
Maybe twice, maybe I should just count up my tears and move on.
Dues paid and deposited into the tampered and broken sections of my heart, no dearly departed I’m still standing. I’m just aware that my life means something to me.  I find myself looking into the mirror with wondering thoughts that seem to just cross my mind and time doesn’t exist.  I want to hug myself, searching for some type comfort even though poetry frees me.  There are lists of things going on but that’s the role or part played by the image of this broken man.
I work hard on who I am,  doing my best not to be wrong though have been taught by several, sometimes I just don’t matter.  It’s not in me to give up, just that part of me to be Noble and at the same time a broken man.

Umidin topragi  sevgi
Ofkem olsa  gozyasi
Tufan  olsa sondurse
Bitmeyen yanginini anilarin

Umidim sevginin atesi
Hikayesi anlatmakla  bitmez
Uyanirim kaygilanirima
Duslerim seni her gece 

Korkmadan yilmadan
Dusunurum yolunu
Duydukca adini uzaktan
Aglar yanarim her gece

Dalgalar ve ruzgarlar 
Ve bitmeyen yagmurlar
Yine kosarim umide
Nefesim aglatir beni
Dogarim yeniden umide

Umidin hayalinde sensiz
Yasarim gunahlarimi
Sesizligin olumunde
Sensiz her gece 

Kul olan agacim yeserse

This Christmas

Wow another year has come and gone 
What a year it has been
So many things we wouldn’t change,
yet so many we would
As the new year approaches we all will set goals for ourselves 
and our family’s too
As we do this let us remember the true meaning of Christmas
Let us not forget that if it wert for Our Lord Jesus Christ we wouldn’t be blest with the many 
things we have today
So with this let us celebrate the ultimate birth, the birth of Gods sun
Let us all decorate with bright vibrant coolers, sing his praises and give of ourselves in his 
honor   
Let us all stop, be still and think of those not with there family’s this year
Let us open or hearts to those less fortunate than us
Let us all say a prayer for our neighbors, family, and friends for there safety in the coming 
year
As we go forth in the following year let us all carry Gods love and pass it around to each and 
every one we meet

AN EASTER HYMNODY

We sing a song of Easter praise
in Hallelujahs raised,
of thankfulness for grace-filled days
with lifted hands,always.

We witness today,His good news
on a tree,slain for us,
rememberance of His stripes and pain
in that death,we live again.

A Comforter,for one and all
empowers,if we call,
close by,at hand,within us now
as,in worship,we bow.

Far and wide,these truths we forthtell
in our joyful hallel,
these songs of Easter praise now heard,
we tell the Gospel word.

Statues Out of Stone

Statues Out of Stone…

As I pass the time tonight 
It seems the words may rhyme
But right or wrong 
Still doesn’t make much sense to me
Because I’m lost in my thoughts
Wondering if all I’ve sought
Will stem from all I am about to leave
Still there is indecision
Though my decision has been made
Like a surgical incision
And I’m the only one holding the blade

Carving statues out of stone
Though I still bleed and shed my tears
Carving statues out of stone
The only way to conquer my fears…
Statues out of stone

THE MUSE OF YOU

   THE MUSE OF YOU
Through all of time and all of space,
and following into the chase
but never catching what I've seen
nor even knowing what I mean
it's not a thing my mind can place.

Your eyes, so deep, I never know
where you might lead, where I must go,
but there I find what I must write
the words, though sometime seeming trite,
and from your eyes they have to flow.

No less than what is meant to be
the Muse of you carresses me;
I wonder is this love or not,
or something else, but don't know what,
and I must follow what I see.

Forever summer rain will fall
into my life, and love is all
there is to be my wordly guide;
between each line is where I hide,
if I do less, then I have lied.

And so the truth I have to show,
revealing what I never know,
but wonder at, as words come on
out of your eyes, where I have gone,
and been where I should never go.

Here is the finished revised Lyric for Bipolar. The song can be heard at my poetry website vbdosa.com and then clicking the Bipolar link.
     BIPOLAR
Sometimes I can feel a magic like I've never known.
I could run a thousand miles. Run a thousand miles.
Sometimes it's more like I'm dying here all alone.
Sometimes I think I'll die alone.

Sometimes I can reach out for you, but you're made of stone.
I could die a thousand times. Die a thousand times.
Sometimes it's more like you're showing me I'm not alone.
Sometimes I think I'm not alone.

Euphoria. Up and down. In and out.
Up and down. Euphoria.

Sometimes I can feel a magic like you've never known.
I could run a thousand miles. Run a thousand miles.
Sometimes it's more like you're showing me I'm not alone.
Sometimes I think I'm not along.

Up and down. In and out.
Up and down. In and out.
Euphoria. Then I'm down. Down. Down.
Euphoria. Then I'm down. Down. Down.

In--

This itching
It’s like a drug withdrawal
From my body

And I fall
But I don’t do this intentionally
I do this because 
It’s what I do

No stepping of the ledge
Easily—
No willing sacrifice
Just me
Falling—
Because there is no where else 
To walk

This is me
This is who I am
This is what I do

Do not thank me for it
I do not want it

But don’t also think this 
Saddens me
Or inconveniences me 
In anyway

This is what I do
This is who I am
This is me

Think of me as a tool
A well-guided instrument
To a poorly thought-out 
Providence

This is it…

Or maybe 
Simply
That one you forgot 

You remember 
Now that I prod you

I’m the method—
You used to know

Somewhere near Forever

When you are asked 
   where you are going Friday night
tell them you are going
    somewhere near forever
   Our words rise heavenward 
  like smoke from a fire 
as we taste a part of eternity 
   The world as we know it
is something we can deal with 
if we look upwards 
at the heavens with awe
  This special time - this Shabbat 
Links us with the past 
   points the way to 
a worthy future 
  Brings us in tune 
with the lyre David stroked 
  to ease Saul's pain

Spiritual Self

I grew to know myself at last, now I know more than in the past;

When far from right…words did deceive, I could have missed dear mothers’ heed;

She tried her best to make me see, majestic purpose… just for me;

God’s gift of love dwells in my heart; He blesses me… pure Will imparts;

Life’s lessons learned empower faith, steadfast with every step toward grace;

My spirit bonds to nurture souls; Enlightenment by wisdom flows… 

Bugles sound while marching on; Joyously Mount Zion bound.

where ive always been

The air in this tomb sticks to my lungs offers no relief
The moments of comfort are short and brief
the darkness engulfs all of my senses
like the wrapping of guilt in so many confessions

maybe i deserve this twisted fate this ironic end
what i wouldn't give know just for a friend
my body grows weaker as the ordeal carries on
i pray this time tomorrow i will already be gone

laying in this bed i feel its my coffin my casket
don't know where I'm going but ill get there in a hand basket
even though i know its almost over regret seems to be my only companion
inside there is enough sorrow to feel the grand canyon

this late in the end i cant find the strength to speak
so much left unsaid am i wicked or just weak
i think people are here with me voices and a familiar face
the people i love cant follow me know they must stay in this place

if theres more after this life has passed me by
ill wait for you all on the other side 
i hope I've left fond memories with you all
you kept me standing after every single fall

Apophis

You say you know no saviour,
You say you know no God. 
But find your scripts and rosary,
You'll need them when I'm done. 

Seven armies couldn't stop me.
Seven horsemen couldn't budge
All that I have inside me,
And that I've become. 

Never underestimate your enemies
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet.
Never underestimate your enemies
Or what I'll do for victory.
Shield your eyes so you don't see
That I'm not done yet. 

Happiness; I've done all I can.
Loneliness, let go of my hand.
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet. 

Drink your holy water and cleanse inside,
I'm waiting until midnight.
I won't stop until I hold your heart.
I won't stop until own your soul. 

This evil plays such a pretty song,
You know the words now sing along.
Oh the notes they sound so sweet
In this dark, dark, dark symphony. 

Happiness; I've done all I can.
Loneliness, let go of my hand.
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet.

Never underestimate your enemies
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet.
Never underestimate your enemies
Or what I'll do for victory.
Shield your eyes so you don't see
That I'm not done yet

Living Her Life

She sees the pains,
Which her native folk have gained.
She changed from a little girl
To someone who has always had the potential
To change her own little personal inner world.
As a child she never went through
What some other children of her people
Had went through themselves.

She used to never knew how the roots
Of all her people’s issues
Were and are so controversial.
Blessed was she, as a very young child,
For not knowing fully all the reasons why.

Blessed that she is and will always be
Full of feeling, and always quietly wondering “Why?”, 
Now she is filled with new knowledge and a developing sense of wisdom 
Within her own individual mind.
She is now what she had always
Envisioned and imagined before, since her elementary days.
She is (“I am...”) not entirely that same little girl anymore.
She is now one of the many of that particular kind.

Within her imagination is a longed 
Wanting of finally revealing 
The truths she has discovered and
How her people must change for the better.
Throughout her whole life, which she’s lived through so far,
She maintains a heart filled with feelings, 
A mind filled with knowledge
And a slight emotional immaturity as representation
That her inner child self is still alive on the inside.

Her inner and past child self (who was different from all the rest,
But was also similar to them when at their best).
Never truly knew how far she’d come in life.
(As of right now and forever into the future)
How she has grown and maintained herself
Is how she had made that (her) inner voice in her head and 
Had also long ago already acknowledged her true self.

She still stands in her own believing faith and faith in herself
And her lack of prejudice is what makes her naive thinking
Make her own days in her life far brighter than what others say
As they discourage her from doing 
Or trying to pursue something grand and part of a divine plan.
Even after times and tribulations involving doubting tremble.

Blessed she is for being so whole in her own presumed thoughts,
Blessed she is for logical thinking based on emotion and feelings.
Blessed she will always be, for Christ himself said to a woman
(who was suffering from something for more than 12 years), 
“Your faith is what made you whole.”
Now she thinks...
“Grateful and blessed I am, to the point of tears of joy and sorrow of how I used to doubt.
I now forever know what my life will be like beyond tomorrow.”

Letting My Hair Down

Settling down with a real good book
All safe and warm inside my reading nook

Watching time go by 
As well told stories arise

Tales of dragons lives
Heroes live and die
 
All in one simple look
Maidens love and cry

All here with-in a sigh
I laugh as I day dream about the time I took

Loves Faith

Sometime in life, I used to know who I was or what life was about.
Now I just merely exist in this never ending world.
Where once love and fear roam but is now a graveyard.
Is it not of our hearts we live, as we strive the trial?
It is of pain and suffering but still of dreams we wish for.
It is that of hopes for a better tomorrow but life’s ways
that makes us strive for tomorrows.
But it to is that of a greater love.
Rather it is that of higher power or one far away.
I know I’m cared for in many ways.
And hope you are having a blessed and pleasant day.
Even through the hard times we encounter these days.
                          God Bless’
                                 Sign,
                                           Yours w/Love

Night of the Ghost Knight...

Tender Rose! watch tonight
I reach thee there, in a wondrous flight
Sighs, storms not any more
as wanton winds soften the roar.
Tearing apart the paths I 'll be
trotting triumph through the untamed sea
hold unto thy dreams for a while
as riding I come charging the vile.
Queen of hearts, my charming bride!
shining I near over the tide
Danger, Death my old delight
truest promise tonight, must see the light.
Dogs, savages of the dark
Come an' they shall be ripped apart
Guides me truly...heavenly a spark
never let Fear rule thy heart.
The moment I kiss this castle enchanted
my silver armor in crimson painted
four or forty heads...I need not know
though fiery monsters shall be lying low
Moonlit sword shall drink the sun
the fire of my breast shall make them burn
Fear not faerie queen then, my faerie dove!
witnesses every move...the angel of love.
Softly like rain...fall into my arms
O' Heavens! Thy countless ethereal charms!
I shall fly thee...through kind the flashes of the moonbeams
away from tempests...to mid summer's night's dreams.!
Unpin the braid...we'll sail in the wind
hoofs won't touch the hard roads blind
into the sea of love...where no chains can bind
as mortal fear, mundane terrains...we leave behind...


Note-As the sailors enter the Thorde sea...they can hear a faint voice singing. As they 
move further deep into the waters...the wind all of a sudden hums low an' the voice grows 
distinct. A clear ringing voice...pain or ecstasy, they cannot make out. It sings of a deathly 
night...of a Knight an' his beloved...the rescue an' an almost successful escape. That 
night..as the two approach the sea...the knight finds his ship...set ablaze by some 
treacherous spirit...gone unbeaten. At this moment of great fix...ten arrows strike the knight 
from the back...poison tipped. The beloved princess is speechless in ecstasy...an' she 
knows nothing of this immediate dreadful strike. As a knight ...never falls or fails...he looks 
above, at the gleaming heaven in earnest pray...an' with his beloved holding him close; he 
storms into the sea with the horse. The waves this moonlit night...remind you the tale once 
more....as in above...

Row The Boat

Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
Even if unknown why.
Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
And man, you'll go high.

Just row the boat,
Just row the boat
Even if your hands give up.
Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
Even if you've had enough.

Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
Even if you're stalked by sharks.
Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
No matter how grotesque bruise marks.

If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
You may reach luck's open arms.
If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
No more emptiness in your palms.

If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
At least, you gained exercise.
If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
The decision; remarkably wise.

If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
Mistake; an antonym.
If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
You may just reach Him

Our Last Respects

Our Last Respects...

One final day we pay our dues
As the ferryman comes to take us away
No more fear of what’s to come
Just a sea of tears with the rising sun

Your family and friends are with you
To see you on your way
Another part of the journey has begun
As you clear a path for all of us that will follow

One by one the words they flow
Expressions of love reliving joy through sorrow
Grief sown from disbelief at the loss of a loved one
Hope drawn from the strength of the faithful

We close our eyes in solemn prayer
Unspoken thoughts for the hearts that are broken
Emptiness that with time will slowly find closure
As one door is closed another will always be opened

Go Find Your Place In The Sun

(Written 16 September 1999/2:35pm, Thursday)

"Beyond the sacrifices of the Body.
Necessary light.
I bend toward it and blow gently."
                                    -Patricia Fragnoli
How can I...?
The heat of the Sun
like prying eyes of Mankind
burns me.
But who cares?
Yes, I confess: This life's a mess.
Though, I don't want to die yet.
I trust, it's not yet time.
But desperation haunts me
like a thief in the night.
Back in my gloomy years,
I have thought of 
taking my own life...
But those times were all over--
still hoping so.
It's time. I want to live in Light
inside my dreams.
Never mind the outer limits.
I'll do it my way.
It's my life anyway.
It pains me to think
of the Hard Reality
that this world is one big labyrinth.
Many people lose their way
and waste away their dreams.
I share the tears
of the Human Soul.
With this, I intend
to conquer my own frailties
and lift up the broken spirit
of the outcasts.
One day, if I could find my soul
and listen to it,
if I could have a heart
and follow it,
if I could live to see the sun--
One day, I'll find my place.

The Ultimate Birthday

As the snow falls we sit by the fire
Thinking what a beautiful sight to see
Shimmering lights all around
Children's eyes all aglow
Bows, ribbons and wrapping too
All these things for me and you
From God above to show his love
On this the day
The anniversary of his son's birth
So as we open our gifts
And spend time with family and friends
Let us give thanks to God our Father
For giving his only son for you and me

JOHN - THE BELOVED DISCIPLE


There was a man named John
who became Jesus best friend
he followed his pathway
going through every twist and bend

John left his father Zebedee
to follow the Jesus way
he went with Peter and James to Gethsemane
there to see Jesus go to pray

John’s mother was Salome
who requested John to sit at Jesus right side
in the new kingdom to come
was a real mark of her pride

John told many things of Jesus
throughout his gospel
acts of mercy and healing
words of love and comfort as well

Jesus great high priestly prayer
tells of praying for his own
John relates this in 17th of John
where God’s truth is clearly shown

John’s epistles were from his pen
teaching believers to live in love
as those who knew love divine
were clearly filled from above

John’s final piece of scripture 
is God’s final revelation
showing mans final destiny
which God planned before creation

Risk it

You've got to risk
Don't play it clean

Run mad for Christ
Don't sit and dream

Lets act the cross
No more comfort zone

Let's grow in Christ
Like plant is green

Risk it
To get a biscuit

never forget 9-11

On that day we were all the same, we didn't know there faces, we didn't know 
there names.
There voices we heard crying all around the world, someones loving father, 
someones little girl.
On that day we were called to lead a better life, for that someones father, for that 
someones wife.
The list of souls read from above before it came below why it was and why it is the 
answer no one knows.
Through the pain we have learned lessons great and small, life, love, and happiness 
are precious cherish them all.
With grace we all go on, but never will we forget that all of these beautiful things 
can fade so very quick.
On that day we wondered, on that day we cryed, on that day we asked ourselves 
what kind of man am I?
Mothers held there children for so long and oh so tight, why did these people have 
to go this was not there fight.
We hope and pray for all those names, and the ones they left behind they gave 
their life for a question the answer we must find.

In My Poet's Eye

IN MY POET'S EYE
I can't say, where you are tonight.
I can't say, our love would have turned out right.
I don't know, but I do know, 
you are still my love.

Every night I find I still reach for you.
Any time I pray, I still pray for you.
I don't know the reason, 
But I know you're still a part of me.

In my poet's eye, I still see you here.
In my poet's world, I still feel you near.
I don't know the reason, 
but I thought God meant this love to be.
I don't know the reason, 
but I thought God meant our love to be.

In my poet's mind, you are mine again.
In my poet's heart you are here again.
In my poet's eye, you'll always be my love.

In my poet's eye, you'll always be my love.
In my poet's eye, you are still my love.

The Struggle

Strain 
On my back
This burden
Will burst my veins
The strength to hold on
I lack
Can't shield the attack

I shake
Under the weight
Keep throwing the bricks
Until my soul is sick
Create my fate
Laugh when I cry
And dance when I die

Venom filled words
Burn through the porcelain
Stabbing the sword
Deeper in blood red skin
The hiss
Fills my ears
Hit
Miss
One more sear
More burning tears

Death will come
Victory for the meek
Can't help but succumb
To the power you seek

We stand tall
A power so great
You've become so small
No room for your hate
Our scars erased
By the one deserving
The highest place

I Believe

i may be just a teen
but there's more to me
i love
i care
i know
i share
i believe i believe
peace to the world

Ladies Let Your Laughter Out

When things seem to go so wrong
Sit back wait 
watch and listen
For everything in life pretains to a song.

Tho we sometimes won't hear
It right away
Maybe it is struck somewhere 
Inside our cluttered heads.

But don't give up
For a lesson is to be learned
Just trust in yourselves
And slowly move on.

When you least expect it 
You will hear them loud and clear
All the words will gather
Opening your deaf ear.

Rushing you so
Maybe some leaving you 
Somewhat dreadful
Who Knows?
 
Now aren't you glad you waited
Aren't you glad you listened?
For the words you will hear 
Are all about you.

Now put them all together
And share it's meaning 
With another.

For there will always be 
Someone waiting as you were
Listening for laughter
Laughter needed for them
To recover.

Bed Business Betrayal

You were everything I prayed against you to be.
You peddled your rhymes on Friday nights,
You sold your soul and your creative rights.
But the only one who saw the change was me. 

I feel your grip loosen and you’ve started to slip,
They consume you in the midnight hour,
Your dirty knees show that you’ve lost all power.
But I still reach out, I can see through your quip.

Your betrayal has now climaxed, and to it’s easiness you heed.
Your eyes can see only hatred and pain,
So as their whore you will forever remain.
But my eyes see the everlasting promise, the one you didn’t need.

Don't Let Go

Every day I wake up and look in the mirror
I can’t tell who that is looking back at me
There’s a girl crying, “This is not meant to be!”
I feel the war torn soul going cold
Those cliché phrases are growing old
My hand clutched tightly to fragmented memories
Of days of laughter and no worries
I’ve lost the will and strength to fight
I’m falling down losing sight of the light
Quickly fading into a sea of bitterness
I’m frozen in a state filled with emptiness
Like a lifeless corpse lying helpless on the ground
I’m in desperate need of redemption to be found
Breathe life back into my nimble bones
Bring me back to a place where I’m not fighting this alone
The weight bears so heavy, I sink farther
Everything gets quiet and my heart grows darker
I close my eyes and see a faint glimmer
A rustling in the wind whispers, “Things could get better.”
History promises I’m on the road to destruction
But the future tells of a path of resolution
My fingers are slipping as I cling to the edge
Deep in my heart I don’t want to come off this ledge
It’s enough to know the battle isn’t done
As long as I don’t let go there’s still a war to be won
Every step I take is a victory in itself
Of turning my life around and not giving up on myself.

Bear with me

You I’m still searching for a life
I don’t have the answers to your questions
But sometimes I just want you to believe in me
Someday I will find my own way

I don’t know what I should do
But stay for me and tell me to hold on
It’s a heart breaking seeing the unhappy
What more can I do, All I can is to hope

If I don’t talk too much
Doesn’t mean that I don’t care
If I don’t do things enough
Doesn’t mean I don’t do anything

If I could turn back the time
And knowing the future would be such a dull
Maybe I can make up for all my mistakes
And be the girl you wanted me to be

Tell you something…
My heart hurts
It hurts deeply through my brain

Nothing else I could do…
My tears fall as I bend down on my knees
Wishing everything turns beautifully
And no more worries in our life

Just let me keep my dream alive
Let me die trying or nothing at all
Let me believe on its possibility
Believed in me and always you’ll be

I have sacrifice the time
For searching and hoping
Though it’s such a waste of time
I know everything will turns beautifully

LORD, USE ME

Lord, use me
to accomplish your purpose,
and make a sower out of me...
to multiply these scattered seeds;
miracles come in many forms:
in blessings of prosperity!
What I gave was all I had,
and what I will receive
will be more
than abundance!     

Defying danger and changelling death, 
I walked straight into the wilderness,
but nothing scared me in my pursue; 
afraid of  turning the pages of the Bible
and not feeling sympathy for myself,
I ventured all and got lost...
my innocence turned into lust,
which gave me pleasure without any rule!

Lord, use me 
to drive many away from foolishness, 
and as You forgave me of my impurities...
they will see Your mercy
as clear as morning;
and reject sin as a hateful thing!   
Lord, use me     
to declare the freedom that came with change,
and anyone can be part of it...regardless of age;
Lord, use me and let me love in humility!

Welcome To America

They held up a sign that said, "Welcome to America! Land of the free," but America isn't free nor does it personify liberty and it surely doesn't breathe free air.
If you want a gallon of gas, that's three fifty out your right pocket and don't get me started on what needs to leave the left side of your chest.
I'll give you a penny for your words that mean absolutely NOTHING.
Because the words, "Welcome to America" are full of bullshit.
Where was the freedom when when they forced immigrants to read and write American now known as English?
Where was the liberty when they enslaved not only blacks, but browns as well?
So as for your "welcome" I say "bye." "To" creates "mother" and "America" gives birth to "****er."
If you didn't hear my words when I said them, how about you read between the lines and understand that...America ain't nothing to brag about if your black or brown.
Because last time I checked, they both played the role of bullied to the greed of a white man.
So I say, "Welcome to America! The Land where the rich only *****on you."

I had a dream

I had a dream
that I will love someday
the man of my dreams
will restore my faith
cuz I had disbelief in love
I thought it was just a fairy tale
cuz I been hurt before
plenty men put me through hell

back in the days
men use to say
"If Im gonna court you"
we might marry someday
and if they really love you
they will show you in diffrent ways
as time change
today men play so many games

I had a dream
that I will love someday
the man of my dreams
will restore my faith
cuz I had disbelief in love
I thought it was just a fairy tale
cuz I been hurt before
plenty men put me through hell

I set the mood
im old school
I cant be the norm
to new school
I wish time, I can rewind
I need real love to keep me alive

Spiritual Recall

Ageless in confession
Above my fear’s greed
It prays for me to falter
And forget what I believe

Life was once a symbol
A tool for self-reclaim
For honest independence
But then began this game

A world that was for taking
Advantage of the true
Through bitter, lost denials
A rebellion then ensued

Pain became infection
Never again a sign
Instead of overcoming
We chose vengeance and design

But though these things run rampant
Life is still a tool
To understand our failures
We will only find more truths

Ageless in this wisdom
Beneath my highest form
And between opposing forces
I will remember where I’m from

Only a Geranium

It is only a geranium
blooms with steady scorches
unswerving loyal drizzles
and swells with glorious colours
that seldom waver to impressions 
as one passes by

 I am only there to contribute, 
take from such beauty all that I can endure
and perhaps as I gain courage  
seed a few more each weekend
until the mornings consist of fresh perceptions
 captivating admiration
and if I need to escape, 
walk out the back gate, 
it is only because 
I often forget to remind myself
it is only a geranium.

The Final Star isn't Born

(The final star isn't born!)  
    There is a star shining in the skies above you.
    There's a hell that likes to sink inside you,
    and there’s a ambition that stands beside you,
    and a dream that likes to catch you.

    Within these dark eyes,
    is a drop of our belief.
    As you fly in these blue skies.
    you’ll soon be up there in relief.

    With the world in your hands.
    Take a chance and take a stand.
    Tell the world another great story
    and with your stories in hand.

    Take the controls, take command
    and you are the star with the best glory.
    There’s been a mirror held to my face.
    Your face is what I see in place.

    I want to see it again and again.
    You are the dream of the girls,
    come and take us just for a twirl.
    We just like to know how’s it been.

    Your are the star in the sky.
    We will come to help you fly.
    lets take on this dream together,
    no matter whats going on with the weather.

And the toil of the gods was great part 2

And the toil of the gods was great paert 2                                                                           
Soon the inescapable truth will come hurdling home once again
We may face the end of life and dreams or we may finally ascend and be reborn
Together we must forge the path forward so as one we can understand where we have been
Once again they will set out in search of sustenance for a home that’s bloody and torn
In their code they will take with then the infinite knowledge of the ancients
Another planet a different sun, light-years away more of our people toil on
Now as we face the summit and re nearer the apex we do with their absence
Too much time has passed since the first fathers came and since they had gone
This immortal spirit remains trapped within this fragile shell
Our souls and blood hold the key to a powerful wisdom but the lock evades us all
Still the war is raging no gods or demons and not for tales of heaven and hell
A boundless eternal soul is the prize, defeat will be fatal the ultimate downfall
So many questions we ponder so often oddly frequent
What evolves to feel dread or fear where’s the need to dread ones own death
A celestial being is meant to be whole and completely transient
The coming test we must not fail or we will all share our last dieing breath
The veil can be lifted and the secrets in the palms of our hands
Moving thru time hurdling in space as the universe expands
The true forms we were denied but with salvation we may return to the creation
No longer bound no longer chained and never again forsaken
They forced on us the mind now the peace and liberty must be taken
Soon will see we all die or become one aware feeling boundless wise immortal and free

				AND GOD SAID LET {US} MAKE THEM IN {OUR} 
IMAGE IN {OUR

THE PORTRAIT OF THE DEER

Standing amidst the green pastures,
The body of silken lusture,
Away from the worldly 'features',
What a wonder has created nature.

Freedom fill thee all 
Peace covers thou like a shawl,
Thy - eyes represent harmony,
Thy energy so much fawny.

Are you standing here from the very dawn,
Surrounded by the dewy lawn,
The top of head the twelve 'thorns' -
Symbol of protection from all foes till they are fully gown.

The time seems dreadful night,
When creatures' heart fill with fright,
But your gaze cheers every sight,
Showing all the divine power of 'Light'

JOY BELLS RING IN GLORY

A tender child is sleeping in a warm manger
watched by a sweet,happy mother;
joy bells ring in glory,
in the blue Heavens
shines a yellow star!
This night is too cold for the sheperds
watching their sheeps over the hills of Bethlem;
the Angel of the Lord will surprise them:
as they'll tell them,"The King has come!"
That star will lead them,
and they will find the little King...there;
kept warm by the breath of his mother Mary!

Joy bells ring in glory;
the Wise Men are coming from the East,
to bring Him the precious gifts of destiny...
to worship that humble child
sent from a caring God:
to show the hearts of men His love at last!
