A Greener Grass

You think I have a pretty face My dresses weaved from frills and lace You think that I'm a spoilt brat with diamonds around my neck and roses in my bed You think I own the pot of gold A blissful future to behold You think I live on a greener grass but you know nothing No ,you know nothing about my past There are chapters still on hold A thousand words untold There's emotion still enclosed in a lacrimal drop There is a tasteless tale,a colourless spume and large waves that fall on the shore There's a silent cry which keeps yelling why which keeps loving and hating,mending and breaking Pushing ,embracing our God My unfaithful devotion keeps begging in motion Asking what,where,when,and how long For how long should I wait for to feel the affection, love and protection to listen to daddy singing for me just one birthday song For how long should I pray for,to listen to daddy just calling out my name on the phone You think I have a pretty face My dresses weaved from frills and lace You think that I'm a spoilt brat with diamonds around my neck and roses in my bed You think I own the pot of gold A blissful future to behold You think I live on a greener grass but you know nothing No, you know nothing about my past You know nothing about the way I feel About deep scars that would never heal You just keep thinking that I live I live on a greener grass.

Playing my violin
in my pretty dress
No one here knows
my life is a mess
No mom or dad
just my strings and bow

Every night on the street
breeze is in my hair
I've got hopes and dreams
but does anyone care
Oh, I want to believe 
there's a family for me somewhere

Another day comes and goes 
But I'm not losing hope
You think I play for them
But my violin helps me cope
Praying for a change tonight
Maybe you'll hear me play
And adopt my violin and me
That'd be my New Year's Day

Playing my violin
in my pretty dress
No one here knows
my life is a mess
No mom or dad
just my strings and bow
But tonight feels like magic
I'm ready for a show

A crowd gathers on the street
breeze is my hair
I've got hopes and dreams
that you're out there somewhere
Oh, I'll play with all my heart
be out there somewhere

Another day comes and goes 
But I'm not losing hope
You think I play for them
But my violin helps me cope
Praying for a change tonight
Maybe you'll hear me play
And adopt my violin and me
That'd be my New Year's Day

Caregiver's Road

Beneath a heavy weight I labored,
misunderstood by those I love and serve,
illness raging, family demanding,
expending soul and physical reserve.
Like a thin smoke quickly dissipating,
spirit tenuous, weak upon the road,
on the precipice of breakdown trembling
feeling endurance and harmony erode.

Along a peaceful stretch of sand walking,
listening to pounding surf, the birds,
tasting the invigorating sea air,
hearing in my heart God's voice, His words,
inviting nature in to permeate
my being, soothing the aching pain . . .
spirit at rest, on God's glory feeding,
I can go home, begin my work again.

My Man

There was a time I had
Give up on men,
I prayed oh lord I’ll
Wait on the man you send

In ’93 God sent me the
Man of my dreams
His heart was made of gold

He fell in love with my child
And we had our ups and downs
But kept us together any how

In ’94 we where married
In ’95 I bared our son
That wasn’t a lot of fun

Since then time flew by
And God kept him in my life
Our love is stronger than it ever was

Just know you are the half
That makes me whole and
I will love no matter where 
You go

Dedicated to my hubby,
Whose in Iraq serving his country

                                                        Angela Lee

Beer Pong Balls

-Sing along to Jingle Bells-

Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you sink, the more I drink.
It's Christmas, let's get drunk!


Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you make, the more I take.
It's Christmas, lets get drunk!

Drinking Michelobe... Sipping on some Jack...
We just made two cups... Give us the balls back!
Ha. Ha. Ha.
Guys can finger cups... Girls know they can blow...
I'm hall of fame, In this game, cause I drink like a pro


Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you sink, the more I drink.
It's Christmas, let's get drunk!


Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you make, the more I take.
It's Christmas, lets get drunk!

A day or two ago... Drinking Miller Light...
I had won eight games, and then got in a fight...
Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!
We ran out of beer... Had to get some more...
If I'm alive, then I can drive, let's all go to the store!


Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you sink, the more I drink.
It's Christmas, let's get drunk!


Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you make, the more I take.
It's Christmas, lets get drunk!

The Soldiers Lullaby

She once walked with him and stopped with him
when they heard that familiar refrain.
She'd stand beside him while he'd salute
her pride for her Soldier was plain,

and every night, 
while he'd hold her tight
contented and happy, she'd sigh.
They would drift off to sleep
listening to the beat
of the Soldiers Lullaby.

They play the National Anthem
to fill us with fire and pride
and the last one they play every evening
is the Soldiers Lullaby.

Twice a day at nine eleven
when her Soldier was in Iraq
she'd bow her head in silence
to remember that September attack,

and when she'd get home in the evening
tired and lonely, she'd cry.
She'd pray that somewhere he was listening
to the Soldiers Lullaby.

Now she stands at the gate in the airport
heart pounding as Soldiers stream by,
so excited she can barely contain it
overwhelmed she's starting to cry,

and the crowd is beginning to thin now
the tears and the laughter all die,
heart broken and lonely, she stands there
when she hears his voice simply say "hi"...

It's been years since she's thought of that moment,
they've been busy with life passing by.
Two girls and two boys
now fill their lives with joy
and time really does seem to fly,

but at night when she's tucked in her family
she still bows her head with a sigh
and she never forgets to remember
The Soldiers Lullaby.

~For Jenn with love

The Old Homestead

Orphaned footsteps round the old place.
Pitch black soil, packed deep with bartered
coin and Indian heads – wood and otherwise,

coat her worn leather shoes, Hutterite chic. 
The long land screams within its own silence.
Prairie sage burns somewhere, a ghostly smudge

for the undulating grass and, those it serves.
Its alive scent makes the dead turn towards 
its head - and the barely living turn to listen. 

The impossibly endless horizon holds its bright 
blue at bay, begging acknowledgement for 
its self-professed being and looming enormity.

She looks at the broken window glass and 
through the tattered, delicate gray lace. “Those 
were hers.” She whispers to the one who listens. 

This great-great-granddaughter sees the curtains 
as they once were – wistful in the hot Manitoba 
wind; fresh and lowing with the honest elemental 

scent of aspens, hope and bare-knuckle wash boards; 
always fresh; shifting in the cry for solace in summer 
shadows – never as still as this moments endlessness.

Blowing through the deep brown of splintered pine 
front doors; cracking the announcement of cast iron, 
rot and burnt wood comes the simple statement of – 

I lived. This mother of five young does not cry, 
just yearns to walk in the old ones footsteps;
to know them loved; hear the birdsong through

unbroken bedroom windows for a 5am waking; 
feel the resistance of dough on fingers that beg 
to be broken, and kiss the twisting undead, living. 

The burning of the noonday sun taps her whole,
marking; branding her pale Swedish skin its own.
The red sting of burnt breaks her inward silence, 

welcoming her familiar face home.

© Kristin Reynolds 3 29 2009

*Reposted for John's Summer Celebration Contest. This is a personal celebration; 
celebrating and honoring my great grandparents who settled in Manitoba after leaving 
Sweden and Denmark. This celebrates the summer of family, at least for me. We went there 
every summer until it was gone...

To My Angel Mother

I count my blessings everyday to have a mom like you.
You’ve always been there come what may, to lift my mood when blue.
You say that God sent me down as an angel just for you,
But really God let me choose, I swear to you that’s true.
I saw that we could always be there for one another,
And that’s why God sent me down I chose you for my mother.

I am the woman I am today because you raised me so,
You taught me well and helped me grow, and then you let me go.
You are my mother first of all, but now you’re my friend too.
I never strayed all that far, I like to stay close to you.

Our relationship is a special one I’m sure you would agree.
When I am needed I shall come, you can always count on me.
I know that you feel the same, I am always welcome home.
A warm embrace, a happy face no matter where I roam.

You mean so very much to me, you know that it is true.
I’d walk the very fires of hell, if that’s what I had to do,
To stay the ever loving daughter, and be best friends with you.

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

Scream, Gone

Stomp, stomp, stomp, Scream, scream, scream, Before the stomp, stomp, stomps, He, she, they screamed screamed, And screamed, at I, Scream at I which the thoughts, Of comeback come near, near, and nearer, Stomp, stomp, stomp, I hear the stomps, they come closer, And closer and closer, Stomp, stomp, stomp My heart beating faster, faster, faster! The room, spinning, spinning, spinning! Times going, gone, gone! Stomps coming closer, faster! The screams getting louder, louder! Stomp, scream, stomp! Nothings more worse than when you see the, He, she, they behind the stomping of the stomps, The screaming, of the screams, The fire, hell, saddened in the eyes, Is what hurts most, rather than the, Stomp, stomp, stomp, Or the, Scream, scream, scream.

Cindy Had A Little Bird

Cindy had a little Bird, 
Little Bird, little Bird, 
Cindy had a little Bird, 
Its feathers were yellow as the sun

And everywhere that Cindy went, 
Cindy went, Cindy went, 
Everywhere that Cindy went
The Bird was sure to go

It followed her to school one day
School one day, school one day
It followed her to school one day
Which was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a Bird at school

And so the teacher turned it out,
Turned it out, turned it out,
And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near

And waited patiently about,
Patiently about, patiently about,
And waited patiently about
Till Cindy did appear

"Why does the Bird love Cindy so?"
Love Cindy so? Love Cindy so?
"Why does the Bird love Cindy so?"
The eager children cried

"Why, Cindy loves the Bird, you know."
Loves the Bird, you know, loves the Bird, you know
"Why, Cindy loves the Bird, you know."
The teacher did reply

DaddyTold Me Song on CD

In life to get by, I really do try, very hard to live by,
the old fashioned ways, of how my daddy lived his days,
He often told me not to lie, and when he caught me, it made me cry,
and I still remember him say, son you'll be ok, tomorrow's another day,

Then daddy told me about the war, the first time he wrecked a car,
and of how it made him cry, when some of his friends died,
Then we looked up in the sky, and the whole world felt like ours,
staring high up in  the sky, I just wished that we could fly,

Being young, I asked dad...why?...why do people have to die?
Then I heard him sigh....and oh my oh my,
and he looked me in the eye,
as I yearned for his reply:

Son, people are dying without....and dying within,
with no way out.....hunger starves a friend...
Death is much about, bloody wars that never end...
The whole world, no doubt, suffers from serious sin,

Then we looked high up in the sky, suddenly a shooting star went by,
and the whole world felt like ours, as daddy told me about the stars,
Then I listened to him say, son...tomorrow and everyday...
let nothing stand in your way, and you'll succeed in life....OK.

Normal To Me

This isn't just a poem This isn't just another emotion This is me, these are my thoughts The Imagery is my sight, And The Allegories are my Life I'm lonely, There is just me But there's so many people around but no one can hear my loudest screams Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me I'm torn, I'm Cut Part of my heart stabbed, and then taken from me The Search for my innocence, Is like a moa hunt Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me Laughing and Jokes all directed towards me Just to Hurt me Cover all of the Halls "Fag, Emo, Queer" Words I too often know Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me Curling her hair putting on her makeup "You're worthless and nothing to Me" Says the so-called all-loving-one As she screams: "Why am I not Pretty" Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me This is not just a poem not just some words my pen cries with each words But this is Just a Glimpse Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me

Bedroom Eyes


I think you think I’m thinking something I shouldn’t;
That somehow I’d put you in a compromise.
You know I must be thinking something indecent,
Because I looked at you too long with my bedroom eyes.
I admit to giving you the old ‘once-over’.
If you think I’m being rude, I apologize.
But I’m not on the hunt for a one-night lover,
In spite of what you think you saw in my bedroom eyes.
But when I look in your eyes, I see something to hope for:
Children, then grandchildren . . . maybe longer even more.
So if I look at you too long, I hope you’ll empathize--
There’s more than just desire in my bedroom eyes.
If you could read my mind instead of my gaze,
I think by then that you’ll come to realize
That I’m thinking about you in terms of decades.
I want to look at you for years with bedroom eyes.

Darling Little Girl

Ever since the day you were born
I loved you from the start
And even though I may never see you again
You'll always have my heart

Even though your mommy and daddy fought
It all wasn't your fault
They just had a lot
Of growing up to do

And just because we haven't seen each other in a while
That doesn't mean I don't love you anymore
Just the thought of you leaves me with a smile
And it makes me want to just run over to you

And hold you in my arms and never let go
But before you leave me to go with your new little sister and daddy
There's something I want you to know:
I love you with all my heart

You are a part of my life
And my entire world
And no matter what
You'll always be a darling little girl

Buried Myself Alive

can you remember the time i let you in?
the time i showed you my heart?
the time i shared my soul with you?
the moment i poured out my blood when you needed it?
The second i saved your life?
The hour i saved you from your darkest secret?
The minute where you watched me bury myself alive?
Remember the time when you almost made me cry?
the time i made it a game to play your game?
the day i had my own time and took advantage of myself?
the hour it took to shut you out and let you go away for a long time?
well your going to have to ask nicer than that

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.

The Sins Of Our Fathers

The sins of our fathers cast such long and unremorseful shadows
   Leaving in its quake such a painful sting as only God would know.
With tangled webs that reach to the bowels of hell.
   Manipulating lies destructive words which only a father could tell.
Knowing full well how the vicious lies will be cast downward in a spiraling effect.
   To rob our children of any pride and leave them as societies social rejects.
With no recourse but to follow in fathers misguided and devious ways.
   With unknowing and uncaring reasoning they go forth longing for better days.
So where is the justice for the generation that draws the short end of the stick.
   All to suffer for the mistakes of being sired by a father who was morally sick.
Once in a great while you might luck out and see one escape such a horrible fate.
   Most often as not the majority wind up like dad filled with anger and hate.
If the Lord ever places in your path one of these castaways of life.
    Maybe you can be the one to help free it from all its anguish and strife.
Break the vicious cycle of torment and pain.
   Teach them of our Savior, Jesus, and that not every dark cloud contains rain.
Tell them how Jesus died so they know about the cleansing power of His blood.
   And how God with one gentle breath could tame the waters of a mighty raging 
And how we can repent of our sins and even the sins of our fathers and still be 
   Seek Jesus and ask for forgiveness with a humble and sincere heart, then our 
sins we confess of, He so graciously waived.

On her way

The princess calls me out tonight 
She looks so beautiful, strong and bright
Tears stream down my face 
As I look at my darling with her shining knight

taking her away 
shes so beautiful today 
I know he'll love you till the end 
Forever, we'll be friends

Baby, Its hard to see you go 
Leaving us for this young lad
You wont be around, but i'll be glad 
You deserve more than this whole world 
Show mummy everything you hold

My darlings leaving 
to start her life
I can tell you, this one thing 
She will be the most amazing wife

taking her away 
Shes so beautiful today 
I know he'll love you till the end
Forever, we'll be friends

Pieces of Eternity (Seasons Finale)

Maybe it’s unacceptable 
Live a life capable of a true fable 
True friends never end 
But take you back to where it all began 
But hey misery gave us something to believe in 
Stress became a greater award as we achieved sin 
What could I say? Our savior died on a cross tough as pig skin 
Never once cried over the loss 
Forbidden fruit, Eden garden 
Excuse me, my lord, I beg your pardon 
And so what if these medics carry life in a carton 
But I ain’t trippin 
Simply because this is me until my dying day 
Please stop crying, you know I can’t stay 
I’m going to be the same until my dying day 
Over in that casket is where I’m trying to lay 
That’s right until my dying day 
True lost souls from the dark side 
Forever, we as mortals ride 
Peace is nothing, I fend for quiet time 
Rebels in riot lines 
Previous high school graduates 
Symbols of an adjective running toward fate 
True personality suffer the privilege of inmates 
How could you hesitate to ask 
There’s no stranger under this mask 
Lonely and unholy, who’s there to console me? 
I want to get away, forever restless 
You can see my similarities with the ocean 
I’m stress less 
Because this is me until my dying day 
Please stop crying, you know I can’t stay 
I’m going to be the same until my dying day 
Over in that casket is where I’m trying to lay 
My son, my friend 
We are but pieces of eternity 
Mesh on, mesh off 
Even at our best times we’re soft 
Who’s to say I’d regret my decision 
To lead a sinners life without God’s supervision 
On a one man mission 
And I know I don’t come around much 
Got my palms in reality 
Searching for something softer to touch 
Whisper in my ear, death makes me blush 
And Hell only flatters me 
One and one, through matter the winds scatter me 
I ain’t trippin, baby girl get off your knees 
You’re in the arms of a future me 
And I can’t see heaven from a distance 
Fire me over clouds like a piston 
Marching through blood 
But it’s all mud and water to Darkhouse 
Stand still let me mark my spouse 
Live my life as an outcast 
How could you even picture me at my last? 
Dear lord show some mercy on my followers 
Bless those that swallow dust to follow us 
No need to borrow sympathy 
Unforgiving sorrow made my enemies envy me

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.

Country Life

The corn keeps growing taller every day 
Cut a maze through the stalks for the kids to play 
Me and you in the hammock gently we sway 
This is how we grow in a country kind of way 

Come out to the country, where dreams are made 
Come sing me a love song, a sweet serenade 
Come to me, my darling, you will be amazed 
Come to my heaven, where families are raised 

The sun in the sky, gentle breeze in the air 
All nature's beauty, for everyone to share 
The days are much nicer, the nights all are clear 
Out in the country, all our cares disappear 

Come out to the country, where dreams are made 
Come sing me a love song, a sweet serenade 
Come to me, my darling, you will be amazed 
Come to my heaven, where families are raised 

No smog in the air, just smoke from our bonfire 
No phones or electricity disrupting our choir 
All it takes to live, is love for life and desire 
Out in the country where our corn grows higher

Betrayal at the Hand of the Protector

I grew up, watching you watching me. 
Does anyone hear my desperate pleas?
Can anyone hear my muffled screams?

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays.

Nothing in this world can satisfy the want to live, but the need to die. 
With each stroke, I feel alive. 
Instant rush, I’m feeling high. 

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays. 

Innocence gone. 
Now I’m left with these bloodstained hands. 
My will to live, buried in the sand next to the dead dreams of man. 

Your true colors shine like mirrors reflecting lights. 
Should have known better than to start a fight. 

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays.

From the exact day your Daddy 
said we'd conceived You
Exactly nine months, to the day, 
we retrieved you

It is said You are so much like him
It's a wonder that I was even there

What is a "spitting image" do tell
Because I wouldn't want it 
in my mouth to begin with 

I thought Sons were supposed 
to look like their Daddy's
After all, they're born out of Love
Or did I miss something, somewhere
                   God Bless

If You Only Knew

If you only knew how i felt about you
You wouldn't treat me like you do 
If you love me like you say 
Why do we get to arguing everyday
I guess thats the way love goes
No one ever really knows 
If you want me,take me
It's the only way you'll get me maybe
I have a lot of things on my mind
But you seem to have me in a bind
That doesn't mean you have me on lock 
That just means no one can block 
The love i have for you is power
It just don't come and go in a hour
You got some really good i guess you think you do
But only if you knew

May 10, 2011

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

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

Why Must It Be

Can I let you go? Will you be okay? Where you're headed 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 Parents

Every child has a parent and a story to be told, but not every child 
Has two parents, two parents of gold.

So unselfish, so giving, so much love never ending.
Always there for us, always in support of us,
Without any questions asked of us.

Down the road still living their lives for us.
They would never think of giving up on us.

We truly were blessed the day God gave them to us.
For his hand to mold, a parent worth gold,
Is a child's story that's rarely told.

For God has made them human that's a fact.
They fault, they sadden, they even sin in anger,
But, what my siblings and I have learned from our Mother and Father
Is no matter what, support one another.
For if one is falling, just be there to catch, without any questions asked.

Life is not perfect and we may not be our parent that our children see,
But, we'll make sure that they see gold supports their destiny.

Prevail, yes we will, because forever we behold not one, but two,
"Parents of Gold".

A great day ending in tragedy
now you wait until you get the news
I was scattered in different forms
The car door was slammed into my side
The doctor walks in to give you the news
You fall to the floor
Tears falling from your face
Your makeup running down unto your clothes
Making a stain where your heart used to be
I took you back into the darkest place of my soul
Something was different more darker than before
Now you wait until the funeral of your lost love
Your standing in the corner
Your face is covered in darkness
The blood runs from your eyes
How it hurts in the worst way now that im gone
Your realizing how much i meant to you
Something you havent seen before
Your blindness fades away as you start to see
You fall to the floor fainting
No one picks you up
They drop my casket into my little hole
Where i will stay all life long
How your tears fall unto the ground
Getting soaked up by the soil
Drowning me in your tears
Admire the past no more ways to see the future
Now that your starting to love me more
You wait until you see me in a dream
Dying like the past
As your moving on i fade away
I am no longer alive
You left me behind

A Childs Prayer - God We Need To Talk

Tonight as my baby girl started to pray
She said God it's 8 O'Clock, 
And God We need to talk.
She said daddy help me pray, 
And daddy bow your head,
As we knelt beside her bed. 
she said God can you hear me?
Mommy always said you'd hear me,
If I would learn to pray, 
And that you would show me the way.

Well God I don't understand. 
Why you took my mommy away.
Daddy always says i'll understand, 
When I grow up some day.
She said God, you need your son. 
Well I need my mommy to,
And I know that my daddy, 
Would be happier with mommy. 
Cause daddy talks to her, 
And mommy's not even there.

God can you please,
Give my mommy wings, 
So she can come to see us.
She always kept our house clean, 
And God I know, 
She keeps your house clean to.
And God I miss mommy's big hugs, 
Daddy says your son gives hugs to.
So I know if my mommy had wings, 
She could hug me and daddy.

Well God I want to thank you,
For being there to listen, 
And God think about what I said.
And tell mommy that I love her, 
And God I love you to.
Oh just one more thing God, 
Help my daddy stop crying.
Thank you God, Amen, 
Then she turned to me and said,
Goodnight daddy, I love you.

I was still on my knees, 
Beside my little girls bed, 
With tears running from my eyes.
I gave my baby a goodnight kiss, 
And said sweet dreams baby girl.
Then I went to my room, 
And kissed my wife's picture, 
And with tears in my eyes,
I knelt down to pray, 
I said God, We need to talk.

We're headin' out
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I that I'll miss...this place

No more fun
Gotta buckle down
No more games
Gotta drop this crown
I hope I don't...forget...this place
Days in the sun and
Nights by the fire
I'll miss those times
With a burnin' desire
I'm gonna...miss...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I that I'll miss...this place

We're headin' out
Our bags are packed
The dream is over and
The boxes are stacked
But I can't...forget...this place
I don't know how
How to let it go
I can't find a way
I can't go with the flow
All I that I love...this place

The faces pass and memories fade
My whole life...turns to shade
All I that I'll miss...this place

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

You said things you didn't mean.
His feeling you hurt.
But he never listens to what you have to say.
Trying to wash dishes, it just gets to you.
Stay strong.
Don't cry.
Just finish the dishes and walk away.
Here he goes again. 
You don't do anything, he says.
Yes I do, you say.
What? What do you do...
get on the computer?
watch t.v.?
play around? he shouts.
Homework, you say while fighting back the tears.
Trying to make sure I have a better life, you say.
What you need to do is clean, he says.
Is he for real?
Would he really rather me clean that make sure I have a better life?
Is he mad?
Finish the dishes, he shouts.
But you - never mind! you say.
Stay strong.
Don't cry.
Just finish the dishes and walk away.
Dishes done.
Now walk away.
Almost there.
Shut the door.
Now you can cry.
Wait a second.
Someone is at the door.
He walks in.
Daddy what do you want? you ask.
This is my house and I can do whatever I want, he shouts.
Stay strong.
Don't cry.
Just take it and shut the door.
Don't take it.
Fight back.
He shouldn't make you feel this way.
Daddy you're not being fair, you say.
You never listen anymore, you say.
What are you doing?
Are you mad?
This is your father you are talking to.
You are not mad.
Its time he knows how you feel.
Stand up for yourself.
Fight back.
Let him know how it feels.
He walks out and shuts the door.
You look him in the eyes as he leaves.
There is so much hurt in them.
You finally made him feel how you feel.
And yet, you feel like the bad guy.
Stay strong.
Don't cry.
But you can't help it.
Let it all out.

Mom, you are my role model
Raising me to a young woman, from a little girl
Step by step, day by day
You've done a great job, in so many ways

When I need someone, you are always there
I never have to doubt that you care
I can always tell you what i'm thinking of
Mom, you have my love

You raised me the best you could
Took care of me like any good mother would
You brought me in this world, guided me through life
Giving me the things every kid needs to survive

You righted me when I was wrong
many times you helped me stay strong
Like many mothers, you've tried your best
And mom, i'd say you passed the test

Raising four girls by yourself
Must have been harder than I could inmagine
But obviously you knew just where to begin
And for that i'll love you to the end.....

Dad is not perfect, but, a wonderful man;
He’s honored by his wife, daughter and son.

Whether a naughty girl or an angelic boy,
He’s ready to buy a gift or make a toy.

Dad is whom you want to be with,
When you’re down or you’re in need.

He is always there for you, giving hope;
And loses his temper when you’re in dope.

Dad was born, indeed, to make us laugh;
Especially, when he shares his funny stuff.

In one’s heart, he leaves his memories;
A true friend, a brother, a man of peace.

So this is what dad means to me;
Am I ready for this? Let me see.

Hmm, I’m thinking; nope, I pass.
I’m old, just 90. You boys don’t rush.

You Touched My Heart

Oh how sweet and beautiful are the words
that you say to me, they stick to my soul
like honey to a bee.  They move me,
they soothe me, they let me live, for
it is you that I need and my heart
I will give.

You touched me like I never have
felt before, you start my heart breathing
so fast until I can hardly let go.
I feel your words like sand on a beach
they are still in my head and will never
decease.  Your words are so brand
new and alive, for they are the only
thing that is helping me to survive.

You touched my heart like no other I have
known, the way in which you love me
I wil never do you no harm.  Your words
is like an ocean running free, all I want
them to do is pour all over me.

You touched my heart like a child playing
with a toy, he love it so much because
it brings him so much joy. That is how 
you touch my heart, giving and bringing
me so much joy, it makes me feel like
a child with his new toy.

You touched my heart every day of my
life, that is why I do not care about all
the sacrifice. I wil do everything to make
you happy just as long as I know I am
the apple of your eye and that you will
do or say nothing to make me

You touched my heart from this day
forward, there can never be another
you because you are what I need and
it is me for you and you for me that
is the only way it is going to be.
you touched my heart.

I Hate You Cancer

Dedicated to my Dad who lost his short battle w/ Colon Cancer on June 18,2013

I hate you Cancer
Your vile evil and cruel
You don't care who you hurt
I'll never forget that day
I'll always hate you for it

Your heartless Cancer
You took someone important from me
Someone important from others too
Took people who didn't belong to you
I hate you for it

You disgust me Cancer
You had no right to take him from me
He mattered more than my very own life
I hate you for taking my Daddy
I hate you for taking others too

I hate you with a passion Cancer
You took part of my heart with him
You took part of my soul that day too
I hate you for it
I hate you I hate you I hate you

I hate you with every fiber of my being 
Go back to Hell where you belong
I hate you, others hate you
Your not welcome or wanted here Cancer

I hate you more than his doctor's
I hate you more than God
I hope I get to witness that day
Witness the day you fall
And you will fall Cancer

You're gonna lose the battle one day Cancer
I'm gonna laugh and dance around your grave
You'll finally get what you deserve 
And you'll never be able to take another soul

Simple Math using Relationships

Negativity isn't something to look for about a person when your soul searching,
People say, "don't look, let it come to you"
How would you find.. if you don't use your eyes to see & your mind to do...
How can you please someone when all your concern with is what they done,
One must see it in them to want to work out a problem then the other Adds on,
Now you two create problem solving, which makes the Sum,
Since there's nothing new under the sun then there's no problem about somebody too hard to overcome,
So when you recognize something like a Difference with them its easier just moving onto the next one,
Why waste your power of humbleness with someone that don't see one PLUS one equals to be a positive not a negative outcome.

Don't Cry

Please don't cry over my casket 
For I am not there 
Please don't cry at my grave 
My soul has been set free 
I know it's hard not to cry 
I've been down that road one to many times 

I have no more pain 
I have no more sickness 
And I would not change a thing 
As I walk threw the gates of Heaven 
Mom Dad our brothers and sisters 
Will welcome me with open arms 
Here I am free of that pain 

Don't blame yourself 
It was my time to go home 
This is where I'm supposed to be 
Don't dwell on things which you can not change 
I will always be in your heart 

I will always be watching over you 
When that day comes for you to come home
I will be there to welcome you 
With open arms
And walk you threw the gates of Heaven 
You will be greeted by our family & friends
Who came home before you 
Until that day I will be watching over you

Details | Lyric | |


To capture the attention everyone else gets but you
You do whatever you can to get it
Even if its bad
You continue to do it
To get the attention you never had
And the attention you will never get
You want the perfect body and soul that everyone else has
You want to feel important... special
So you seek for a better
Much higher thing
What you need
You dont quite know
But you decide that
You will do whatever it takes to make you happy
And sometimes
That means..
Sometimes it means
Shooting someone
Because the hole inside your heart needs filled
And thats the only thing you ever had
The only thing you see
The only thing that someone gave to you
The thing that got everyone talking about you
The thing that got everyone to even look at you
So if you decide to kill someone
You kill yourself afterwards
Because you felt lonely again
You felt that no one was watching you
That no one even cared 
Then you think about all the things that 
Bugged you
And you pull the trigger
Then theres no more you
Next time someone sees you
You will be on the news
Where now you are special
And important

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.

I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

I know I can Be a Bad Man

Yeah I know I can be a bad man
But I just want people to understand
I do what I must, I do only what one can

I think about life, I think about my everyday strifes
I know I love you girl you the mama of my children
You already like my wife
I know I have cheated from time to time 
but you the only one who I sleep with at the end of another long night

Yeah I know I can be a bad man
But I just want people to understand
I do what I must, I do only what one can

I know I like to drink yet it feels like I love that alcohol
This liqour and beer is my number one downfall
If it werent so then the crazy *****in my life now I would have never saw
I would have never ended up sitting in prison for breaking the law

Yeah I know I can be a bad man
But I just want people to understand
I do what I must, I do only what one can

It's alright now though because Im back in school
I know I struggle at times but Im reframing from being another lost fool
I know it bull-*****even though many youngsters think that *****is cool
But they don't know if they been where I been and still want to do what I do

Rose Wine

Your strong hand 
beneath my head
my Love in your Blood
turned from friendship
did spread
into More
the first time you
took my Hand
and traveled every
line, of my Flesh land
the way you reflect your soul
Into my Eyes, 
makes me forget my small stature
shape, size
in this world
I wish to carry your 
future child
be it boy or girl
be them strong of spirit
Smarts of street and class
leaders of Eminence
Sweet mixed with Sass
I see this future
as I fall head first, spilling
into your secure embrace
like a single bottle of Rose Wine
Down to the last Taste

Forever Changed

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where a few minutes from home
When we got the call from our baby sister

Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it back in time

Our Family & Friends were weeping 
By the time we got to his side
We knew then our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters climbed in his bed 
We laid down beside him 
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed

The Kids Have All Been Fed

When you called me on the phone,
I answered and said,
honey, we feel so all alone, 

It's so good to hear from you tonight,
the kids have all been fed,
but, I couldn't eat a bite,

I know we've had our ups and downs,
and our in betweens,
but honey please please turn around,
it's not as bad as what it seems,

Don't tell me it's over now,
we don't need no more bad news,
we've got to find a way somehow,
the kids all need new shoes,

Honey, please turn around,
I know that we'll pull through,
although we've had our ups and downs,
I'd never stop loving you,

We've got to find a way somehow,
it's the kids that feel abused,
Don't tell me it's over now,
we don't need no more bad news,

Please come back home,
the kids have all been fed,
we feel so all alone,

Now nothing seems as right,
I kissed the kids for you tonight,,
and held them tight,

Please say you might.

Life can be difficult that fact is well known
Your kids are your kids after their grown
We may not always see eye to eye
But somehow you need to let hard times fly by

You can't let things linger
And you can't shake your finger
You just hope you can guide them if they ask
But don't be offended when you’re not given the task

They will raise their kids the way they think best
Just like we did when we were put to the test
This is a cycle we all live by
Things may get hard we might even cry

When you watch your son with two boys and a girl
And know this is hard, mixed up with some frills
You know you have taught him the best that you can
You sit back and smile what a wonderful man

Then there's your daughter, who has a little one
As she sits and feeds her newborn son
It's so hard to know the right things to do
But you know she's ready as he sits there and coos

Parents and children are gifts from above
Mistakes may be made but there will always be love
Never take things for granted whatever you do
And know all that we do is just for you

So always show love be it parents or kids
And know that the differences can sometimes be hid
Don't let the small things take control of your life
And always show love to your parents, kids, husband and wife.

I hope you understand what I'm trying to say
We will always love you each and every day
Your kids will always know the love you've shown
Even after they're all full grown

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.

Father to son (A monologue)

Life is full of many important decisions my son
Each decision is a step closer to your future
Every step could lead in many directions, as a man, you must choose one
Do not decide your path on others convictions, examine your own beliefs first
There is nothing worst than betraying ones self; consequences are grave, believe son, it hurts
Walk the path that you choose; sometimes the path gets a little rough and very steep
Be mindful and learn from all setbacks, this builds character; for all our actions we must reap
Stay focused on your prize, remain smart and be aggressive in your endeavors
Remain humble but celebrate your accomplishments; those memories will last forever
Continue to set and achieve goals; do not become content with the present
Contention precipitates laziness, your hunger is subdued and eventually severed
Become a strong, positive, productive and intellectual man
Set the example for your children; this will be a difficult task but do the best you can
Mistakes are common in life son; be responsible and rectify each and every situation
Lord willing, I am preempting one, by maintaining father and son communication

Light Six Candles

I light a candle to honor Your light
 ..................................Your life
 ..................................Your love

You take love over gold
A lovesick humble man You`ve made me
All we gotta do now is to keep up the heartbeat
See You standing there in the candle light..
I worship the life You`ve given me

High on love,high on life
Wheel of love keeps on rollin`
Two lovers becomes three lifes
Three lifes makes a family
The big wheel of life keeps on turning

I light a candle to honor Your light
..................................Your energy
..................................Your aura

There`s no wind strong enough to blow out that candle
Stronger then any forces nature could ever come up with
In the midst of a crowd,Your energy lights up..
..stands out like a shining and heartfelt beam
Close enough to touch heaven,such a sence of paradise

Your spirit embraces mine
Twin souls of mesmerized equality
The big wheel keeps on turnin`
Its never wrong to let love be fulfilled close enough to touch paradise tonight

Your energy keeps giving my life a meaning

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...

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...

Smoke in the distance

Smoke in the distance

I saw it in the distance
The air was filled with smoke
A bush fire, it was raging
Oh, lord this was no joke
For I was heading homeward
It was starting to look bad
For my house was up yonder
The fear it drove me mad.

I've seen so many fires
I know what they can do
I nearly lost my home before
It's bad, I'm telling you
The fear was getting stronger
My imaginations, wild
I felt my body trembling
As I panicked like a child.

The thick black smoke was rising
I drove the car like mad
My house might be on fire
Oh, it was looking bad.

As I reached my destination
My fears did melt to nil
I'll remember that grand feeling
I guess I always will
My house it was still standing
That fire had passed on through
Oh lord it felt so wonderful
I don't mind I'm telling you.

To My Foster Parents With Love

I came into your lives a lost and lonely child,
Full of anger and resentment,
Overwhelmed with fear and confusion.
Yet you took me into your home, your lives, and your hearts.
From the very beginning you tried to make me feel welcome and wanted.
Though I fought you each step of the way you never gave up on me.
Instead you patiently and lovingly took me under your wings,
protecting, guiding and shaping me.
Showing me love and understanding.
Giving freely and openly the praise and affection I so desperately needed.
All the while expecting nothing in return.

As days turned into years you were still there
Making me feel safe and secure,
treating me with respect and fairness,
pushing me to be the best I could be.
And still, there I was fighting you.
Oh, the pain and heartaches you endured at my hands.
Yet there you stood, firm and unwavering.
Never walking away, never giving up.
Always loving me no matter what the cost.

All these years later as I look at my own children
I realize just what you saw and still see when you look at me.
Your Daughter!

I love you.

Coming From Where I'm From

Coming from where I’m from
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears

Coming from where I’m from
Every day is a battle to survive 
War is in session 
Right before our eyes

Each day we battle lessons
Just to be in the running for blessings
Coming from where I’m from
We move rapidly on missions

The dead is alive with every walk of the lifeless 
Limited income withholds wealth
The living is near death
Spirits are stripped of guilt

Coming from where I’m from
Deprived wealth
Creates bad health 
In occurrence to this 
Good feelings are killed

The worst gets exposed 
As times get worse
Financial situations become a disaster
No man on earth can rehearse
The world is broken
Hunger brings harm
Coming from where I’m from
Dictatorship is not fond

The environment brings the need to shoot
These activities loosens the roots
We’re grounded by values as thin as a pin
We lose ourselves at falling rates like bowling pens

No free passes
Prisons filled in masses
Separated by classes
Coming from where I’m from.

By: IzaDonna

You were such a young boy
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

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

My Uncle Danny

My uncle is obnoxious
poking fun at me
but he doesn't think they're insults
he just thinks they're really funny

telling me it's my fault
even when it's not
but really it's not his fault
it's this condition that he's got

he doesn't really understand 
that what he does is wrong
all cause of an extra chromosome
that he's had all along

it's called down syndrom
and it's nothing to laugh at
because he doesn't know it
he just doesn't get that

so I can't really get upset
when he calls me these names
because honestly he just doesn't get 
that I don't want to play his games

Autumn, Lit.Op.3

Oh summer sun’s dusk, the last of its kind!
Now season to tame the bloom that was wild,
Dyed leaves in the air and their rushing sound,
Go dance in the wind like flares in the ground,

This time it’s his time to wither and die,
This Tree that stood straight front my window by,
Those summers and springs while all looked up high,
It hinders my sight- see Venus in sky,

But now it’s his time to wither and die,
This tree that stood straight front my window by,
Now I am among that can cherish her,
Gone in my perspective- all the Tree’s blur,

I saw her meet the leafy winds of fall,
And through the cold her grace and beauty crawl,
This winter and fall we all looked up high,
At last so I see, I see her in sky!

But this spring had sprung along with its bloom,
The tokens of past are the guilt and gloom,
Rise in its remains front my window by,
Hence there I had gazed my loss as I cry,

“In the humid air as drenched earth below,
Down to his shade where there I was spared so,
And back the days where my peace was at stake,
The anger I shared- these all for my sake,”

For those where his deeds whom I had seen least,
They all were unveiled as now he’s deceased,
So here I see forth- winter! Oh its grief!
Dyed are in the air; last sun’s gloomy leaf,

Shame! Fool, I was fooled. Sweet lies in her hands,
Thus so I’m to look his corpse where this stands…
Front my window by. Radiates those good nights,
I send my rejects to all her invites!


Details | Lyric | |


You steal my clothes 
and call me names
you have your fun 
and play your games

Your nice one minute
and then turn mean
you only believe in
what you have seen 

You think I hate you 
but that's not right
you don't know what I'd do 
day or night

If you needed me 
I'd be right there
I'd come and help you
no matter where

When I see you cry 
I think I'd cry too
I can't stand to see
harm come to you

You are my sister
till the end of days
and I'll be there for you
forever and for always

Christmas Morning

Christmas is that time of year
When friends and family gather near
The children giggle with delight
Anticipating Santa’s flight

Wondering if their list has been read
As they snuggle down in their warm bed
Excited about what tomorrow will bring
Trying to listen for the bells to ring

Then before you know it we open our eyes
Run down the stairs to see the surprise
“Wake up mom and dad look what’s here”
We jump and laugh and give a cheer

Santa came, Santa came look what he left
A doll, a bike, a big treasure chest
Our stockings are full of goodies too
We must have been good the whole year through

I can’t believe the things we got
Santa must really love us a lot
So always help your mom and dad
And work on being good, not bad

Santa knows what we do
When we’re happy or feeling blue
Always make sure and try your best and
Santa will take care of the rest

So stoke the fire add some wood
And remember who’s watching
You better be good!

Merry Christmas!!!

Christmas Is Magical

Christmas is a magical time
a time for love and joy
where even in wars there is piece
between the men and women deployed

Children laugh with parents
around a green tree 
everyone is together
as it should always be

snow falls on the ground
leaving everything in a blanket of white
icicles hanging from roof tops
it's such a glorius sight

Christmas is a magical time
for every boy and girl
it's a time for great happiness
and joy throughout the world

It's My Birthday, It is Your Birthday

It’s My Birthday

It’s my birthday…  I look out the window there is no one for me owe so, owe so lonely poor me . 

It’s my  birthday…  you surprise me, with a Barber-Q grill  with a cooler that chills with a grin we show white grills.

Happy Birthday… it’s my Birthday I am still waiting,  it   is almost the end of my the day, just waiting on you to wish me a happy birthday which, well make my day. 

It’s my birthday…you do not remember that day, can we go out for we can remember that day?

It’s my birthday… I can share it or alone, some share it with a twin, or with a friend and the ones who stay to the ends like a good friend.

It my birthday…  its looks like another day to me I just need someone or something to comfort with me a room full of women and with hand full men, a juice in cup, juice in glass, with a sweet lady and grill on cut grass that may make every day feel like my birthday, with a touch of class. 
It’s your birthday… it’s your birthday you should all-ways win on your birthday, if do not have a mate you sneak and go on second party date form those who may player hate.  
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!  it comes and go, I see you come through, looking out my window with a hand full company that is what a party really should need, yes it’s sweet, sweet with music and sweet with treats or  it must be the money, or food, or brinks, or just me.

A day in the country

I went to the country
To see my Bro's Land
I saw he had worked hard
His land looked so grand
For a second this envy
It tapped on my soul
But then I looked deeper
Saw things as a whole!

I looked at his features
All the lines on his face
Not character lines
Those lines that add grace
Just sad saggy lines
From worry and stress
There was naught in his manner
That read happiness.

I’m a loser to his type
I have no ambition
I live for today
He lives for his mission
But I have a smile
And a generous heart
While he, how I see him
Is a grumpy old fart.

Come As You Are

At one point in my life i was an artist
I used to paint and draw
Covering a piece of paper
In beautiful colors
And my art told a story
The sort of story you couldn't talk about
I used to go to school every day
Showing up late 
Wasn't something I'd do
But i dropped out
Leaving my education behind
I played the bass guitar
In a band called 
The Nocturnal
My fingers ran against that bass
Pure magic
The sound of the gods
Setting out to destroy the world
Pure Punk straight from Seattle
At one point i was clean
Sober and pure like a new born baby
Falling further into 
What you now call 
Screwing up my veins
with every shot of herion
Killing my brain cells
With every joint i smoked
Clogging up my nose 
With every pill you could have known
I used to write lyrics
About my life
My childhood
I used to write journals
The ones you read in the book 
that was published of me
I got up on that stage every night
As i was
Nothing fake
Nothing glamourous
Only a few scars
One shot of heroin
Come as you are
The words only speak for

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

Christmas Card Party

If dreams were real and
Heaven sent,
Then surely angels came
Last night

We gathered 'round with cards
A'plenty, and sang
Our wishes by
The twenty

To friends and family
Near and far,
Our hearts were twinklin'
Like the stars

Great food, good cheer, we laughed
All night,
With warmest wishes, love
Was bright

One night, forever shall
Be told,
Love lives eternal, 
The cold

Tho time has burnished
Memory dim,
They came last night,

I remember we'd all pile
     Into that beat up Chevrolet.
Every Sunday afternoon
     I can still hear papa say.
Come on kids we're going,
     Ya, we're taking us a ride.
There ain't no need to push and shove,
     Everyone can fit inside.

Then papa started singing
     One of his old favorite songs.
We'd slap our knees and whistle 
     And try to sing along.
The smile on our mother's face
     Was enough to make me cry.
Oh, I wonder what has happened
     To that kind of family life.

We'd sit there at the table
     With our head bowed down in prayer,
We never had enough 
     But thanked the Lord for what was there.
Then, after we had finished
     Pa would bring out his guitar,
And we'd all sit there on the porch 
     And gaze up at the stars.

Then papa started singing
     One of his old favorite songs.
We'd slap our knees and whistle
     And try to sing along.
The smile on our mother's face
     Was enough to make me cry.
Oh, I wonder what has happened
     To that kind of family life.

 Last night, i dared revisit the crossing
of time with my brother, hovering on a
distant sky , tracing notes of my dripping rhymes.

We grew like chariot riders; he, the Troy of
streets and I, the maiden of lofty speeches.
While his hands reveled at the wonder of seaweeds,
I reviewed the fury of ancient mythology---
he laughs again at the strangeness of my ivory
tower ; and above easels of clouds, he smiles
knowing only he could comprehend my weird
attachment to words, art, and tempest.

Ten years ago, he ascended somewhere
in the glow of light, shutting me from all
moments uninhabited… unleashed.
A blank paper shouts at my hesitating
litany as if it were aware how siblings
climb inside, touch the veins of  bloodline… 
yet, it can not. Like a pageless odyssey, 
I close my seaweed eyes unable to continue 
recounting  that June day,

when Benjo slipped into chariot’s final ride
without nothing else to say.


*in sweet memory of my brother who
relished my uniqueness as a person 
and inspired me to pursue my passion.

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

Over The Bridge

It is here I am safe
It is here that I know
but over the bridge 
Is where I must go

The bridge that gives passage
over quick muddy water
though why I say that
I don't know why I bother

over the bridge 
is a tall oak tree
and standing beneath it
is someone waving at me

crossing the bridge 
I see a man standing there
with paint splatered pants
and a head of white hair

looking closer I see 
exactly who's there
I see it's my papa
and I can't help but stare

I run right toward him 
and give him a hug
I ask how he got here
his response is a shrug

it's then I remember 
the fact that he'd died
it's then I remember
the tears that i'd cried

I ask how it felt
when he had died
he then looks at me 
and he promptly replied

he calmed all my fears
about what lies boyond
then he looks up 
because the suns almost gone

he says I must go
before the sun sets
but I don't want to leave
I'm not quite ready yet

he gives me a hug 
before I go
then tells me I can't share
the things I now know

I give a quick nod 
looking up at the sky
I don't understand
but I don't have time to ask why

turning around 
I try not to cry
I just cross the bridge 
when the sun leaves the sky

I turn back to look
one last time at the tree
but my papa is gone
as was meant to be

Goodbye My Brother

I've seen more than my share of death 
I’ve cheated death also
I thought I'd seen it all 
But I was wrong 

I learned from one of the best 
To control and hide my emotions 
That's one of the things I'm good at
But not tonight 

The first person I laid eyes on that night
When I went though those doors was Josh 
It broke my heart even more 
I knew right then it wasn't a dream 
Oh how I wish it was 

I latched hold of him
Not wanting to let him go 
Afraid I'd lose him too 
Even though we're not blood 
Your still my little brother 

How do I say goodbye
I can't I won't 
So I'm saying see you later for now
I will see you again one day

Even if I don't make it into the gates of Heaven 
I will see you when I stand in judgment 
You'll always hold a special place in my heart 
Love you always

Dedicated to the sudden loss of a close Family friend

Bring Me Memories of Grandfather

bring me around his blazing fireplace
and I'll tell you leprechaun stories

safe from their torment outside 

bring me to the train platform
and I'll grip grandfather's hand tightly

as we turn and wave goodbye

bring me the old shoes grandfather wore
and I'll dream the steps he took

to reach my side

bring me his tiny gold-rimmed glass
filled with sherry

and I'll toast grandmother's birthday

75 years ago

bring me his elegant blue suit
and I'll look through a 4 year old boys eyes

his final resting place

Wasting Time

Way above the street lights
Watching yourself die
Waisting time

They left you in so much pain
You lost everything
For so many years
You pushed me out
Cant describe how i feel

This time im not going to watch myself cry
im not going to bury myself on the inside
You say you want the old me back
If you want me back
Your going to have to ask
Nice than that

Remembering all the things we used to share
things we used to do together
when we were one
crumbling like buring leaves
glue couldnt put them back together
words he used to speak
the air that filled my lungs
Heart beating faster with every word
the feeling disapeared the night it all went wrong
nothing but guilt and tears filled my eyes
praying that the devil would make me yours
and youll be mine again
nothing more is left to say but the word we all fear

I gave her my love;
She gave me new pain.
I gave her my life;
She used me again.

She was my other half,
My sister, my friend.
The trust I once gave her
Comes to an end.

At first, I was numb.
I felt no pain. There’s no happiness.
But my family rebuilt me,
And gave me what I truly did miss.

I will never be the same;
One sister is gone.
But now I’m happy;
I’m never alone!

Christmas Blues

Christmas was never about God for me,
it was memories of warm laughter, rosy cheeked joys   	
for if God was the point, whose God would it be?

Xmas was about giving to your protégées.	
Long, long, lost wishes of long broken boy toys,
Christmas was never about God for me.

Winter’s height held the beauty of childhood set free
of hunting and wrapping and folks overjoyed	
for if it was God, we had three, whose God would it be?

This December wonder now past, gone you see,
gone with the cold, I’d not wish despair on July, this killjoy
for Christmas was never about God for me.

Once a year Xmas marks a sad crying spree
with nobody wanting to be home and little joy employed
for if God were the point, my son would be with me?

Perhaps, with grandchildren there be a jubilee
and this hollowed out husk of me will be destroyed
And Christmas will be about God for me
for it could be so, whose god will it be?

To lovers love means tender embraces,

The Garbage Truck

As we stop, I pull out my jar of Vic's vapor rub 
I put some up my nostrils, this job you cannot love 
But it pays the bills, I make my living 
Trash day is when people are most giving 
They are selfless when getting rid of what they see as junk 
Whew! That smell from the back of a garbage truck 
I spot a pair of shoes for my kid 
I will wash them first, get rid of the odor of rotted squid 
My niece's birthday is coming up soon 
I found a playhouse with dishes, forks, cups and spoons 
It's family night tonight at home 
The unknown video I found will be shown 
Finding the right stuff is a matter of luck 
It is just my point of view from the back of a garbage truck 
I found a half a bucket of KFC 
I take a smell, it smells as fresh as can be, what a surprise for my family 
Two hours later, the family can't keep their meal down 
They are so ungrateful about the food I found 
I am on a strict budget, I have to find a way to save a couple bucks 
More dinners will be found because I work on the back of a garbage truck

My son knows one plus one is two, and more
That two plus two will always make four
If he can add that all up, he’s ready for starting.

He’ll begin his first day, not home but away
And I know in my heart, that he’ll be ok
On his very first day, of kindergarten.

Kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten.

I drove him to school, the first day you know
Because I had a hard time of letting go
It’s never easy, when it comes to parting.

As he walked into class, I had my fears 
But when the crying began, they were my tears
Of joy for his journey, in kindergarten.

Kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten.

He took the bus home like all the others
Including his older sister and brother
But when I saw his face, I knew he was smarting.

He said that he didn’t make any friends
I said soon you’ll have a hundred and ten
He smiled and said that he loved kindergarten.

Kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten.

It’s been thirty years, they’ve flown by too fast
I naively thought, that they’d always last
Although I try not to feel too disheartened.

Since you never know when, you’ll get that call
From your grandson, who’s so glad and all
That he started his very first day of kindergarten.

Kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten, kindergarten.

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 
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
And love

For My Daughter

Now, I don’t really care, she is my grown-up girl
Once I was the oyster to protect my baby pearl

That was the time, to her a lullaby I would sing
She would gently fall asleep, beneath my caring wings

And now is the time, my girl is busy, full of aggression
Wrinkles on my eyes desperately seek her attention

Then a day arrived when she said, 
‘Mum it’s your birthday, let’s celebrate’

At home I awaited her, for a mother-daughter meet
I cooked chicken for her that day, my darling loves it!

But she dint turn up as promised, my heart sank
I consoled myself, she must be playing pranks

She came home late night, no wishes, no celebration
Just a ‘Good Night’, she had forgotten the occasion

Hush lil heart! She is grown up after all, those emotions won’t stay
Hope she is in safe hands, from the core of my heart I pray!

gone means forever

On the day that you left us
I did not shed a tear
Not cause I was happy
I'm quite sure it was fear

I was afraid to cry
To show people that feeling
So I held my head high
Looking up at the ceiling

I held my mom
As tears fell from her cheek
and smiled  when I found out
She'd be gone till next week

I was happy she left
To say one last goodbye
While Mary and I stayed home
And still I did not cry

I played my part well
Staying strong for my mom
I was her shoulder to cry on
Because you were gone

Yet at night I would lay
In my bed wide awake
When I was all alone
That's when my shoulders would shake

When no one could see me
I would cry on and on
I would cry for the memories 
Sad cause you were gone

To the world a brave face
All alone I was scared
To show such emotion 
Was more than I dared

Then one day I relized 
I'd made a mistake
Then with my mom right beside me
My shoulders started to shake

For why should I hide 
All alone in my room
I was merely a child
And I loved you too

I felt a lot better 
After I'd cried 
After I'd mourned 
the fact that you'd died

Being strong for my family
That I will still do
Yet now I will make sure 
That I can cry too

Goodbye papa
I'll see you again
Gone may mean forever
But it's never the end

Stairway to Hell

So much rage
caught up in depression
now i have no one to turn too
i sit alone by my bed looking at the demon 
He stands next to the closet

I wake up every night at 2 am
just before dead time
He makes sounds
i ignore them

He opens the closet door
And slams it shut
scarring me 

One night he visits me in a dream
A dream where my family dies because i killed them
I wake up screaming
I would never hurt my family 

Sometimes its hard to ignore the other world
They make you crazy and depressed 
now you have to pay for the music that drug that demon to your home
All the metal music that killed you
The music that they said would save you

Ask your self are you alive now? 
now that the demon got you?

I think of how it could be different 
how if i listened to country my family would still be here
Demons are everywhere know that?
One is with you right now, watching you type your poems
Watching you read mine

What can they do you ask?
They can do much much more than what you expect
They crush your insides
Make your heart cold
They make you hurt

These demons are not to play with
A found out the hard way
now the pain wont stop
I cant make it go away

You will soon see what i have seen
Cling to god 
Pray everynight before you close your eyes
Pray out loud every morning
Be thankful you havent seen your demon yet

All of us have one
they are all over the world
They will drag you to hell with them!

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.

Like a river to the sea

Inspired by my very beautiful wife

Like a River to the sea

Like a river, to the sea
That’s how my love does flow to thee
Just like the moon reflects the sun
So I reflect your love, my darling one

You be my haven in a storm
When I feel cold you keep me warm
You’re my best friend, my lover too
You be my rose, my darling I love you

My darling every time I hold you to me
A symphony rings out from mystic realm
No matter what this life should ever give to me
I’ll ride each wave with you here at my helm

Just like a star that shines so bright
You be my light on the darkest night
You be an angel with such power
You nurture me and make my being flower.

We are waiting, we're waiting here
Longing to cross the sea
We are waiting, we're anticipating
To be near you, your face to see

We are flying, we're flying there
Like a bird across the sky
We are flying, it's so exciting
Thoughts of you, take us high

Can you hear, can you hear us 
We're coming down the hall
Can you hear, we're very near
We speak your name in southern drawl

You come running, you are running
Around the corner our eyes meet
You come running, for us your gunning
With pitter patter of precious feet

No longer waiting, no one is waiting
You are near, your face we see
Soon let's go flying, it'll be exciting
Let's go home, and be a family!

My Oldies

dancing in my room...
old music from my teen years....
my son shakes his head.

Details | Lyric | |


I remember growing up
With my family splitting apart
Whenever some small problem would erupt
Everyone's piercing gazes like razor-sharp darts

Why did you have so much pride?
Took it with you till you died
Why did you have to,
Yes, I'm talking to you,
Have so much pride?

I think it must have been some kind of cruel joke
That to see my cousins someone had to have a stroke
Is pride that cold, that mean?
No, this must be some kind of cruel dream

I remember that my cousin had to die
To undoe all the pain, all the lies
Now we drift apart again, in two my heart has been rend
When will this cycle of pain end!

Why did you have so much pride?
Took it with you till you died
Why did you have to,
Yes, I'm talking to you,
Have so much pride.

As I speak to you through these words here
I shed countless tears
Cause I just learned I had a niece barely a year old
Or so I'm told.

Why did you have so much pride?
You have all left my side
Left me here all alone
To take care of all my own
Why did you have to,
Yes, I'm talking to you
Have so much pride...

Bosom of a Divine's, Lit Op 4

1 From tuning précised white harmonic doves,
You made a fair light, the sun was torn halves,
And weaved the dimmed lawn- an elegant quilt,
For only those mine could feel the well-built!

2 Hence I, with my will, put bars in the wind,
That is in the bourn of ‘prison’ herein,
But daybreak along broke with stranger fires,
Left frozen be this heaven where it gyres,

3 Seemed nothing less now, my fury was lit,
By those flames that ate my paradise’s seat,
Your presence and will have shined through that fire,
Vile as to sing with the underground choir!

4 Yet in my dark thoughts, spread light of what’s true,
That rooted in you for Wisdom’s with you,
Ruins of Great showed it was but a door,
Whose sill was a threshold leading to more,

5 Beyond grand onset, the path I know tread,
I know you did craft by each thread by thread,
That somehow cuts through the proud earth above,
And if I shall, this must lead me to Love,

6 Thus lifeless, lifeless, indeed you are one,
For this ultimate, you bade it begone!
And let it unite together with mine, 
Whom mentored me so to age like a wine.

7 What more can replace the love that you gave?
For this one shall never have its own grave,
Until I can reach the terminal east,
Then I’ll be those beasts in hatred who feasts!

8 Yours do have outstood all among others,
Revealed in springtime, in its young flowers,
In summer: the ocean; pastures of fall,
And playful flames through the winter spell’s call,

9 Passion and concern, more likely divine,
The best that did lay, they all in you twine,
Hence I’m grateful but to one entity,
Of life only spent in eternity…

Armageddon Pt 1

It's bout to get worse
It was written in the verse
The truth hurts

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

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

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!

Family is Forever

Life right now may not be the best
and every morning I may wake up with a frown
sometimes I want it all to stop and be put to rest
then I begin to think of family
family that has always been there for me 
sometimes I want them to leave me be
and forget all the memories
good or bad
happy or sad
but to forget would mean being alone
then there would be no reason to go on
family is keeping me here
this life were all living is temporary 
one day there will be no more tears
we would wake up with no worries or fears
I would go to sleep with no troubles to carry
into my sanctuary of dreams
and remember to stay a believer
troubles are temporary
family is forever

Details | Lyric | |


To you I am thankful, 
for all that you give.
To you I owe this life thatI live.
You taught me to be all I can be.
Often I failed,
Yet you didnt give up on me.
In my life there will never be another,
To hold a candle to you , my dearest grandmother.

My First Love

(My First love), 
(The way I feel), 
(How do I), 
The way I felt, Within, 
I could never hide, 
So I told you girl, 
The way you, changed my world, 
oh girl, The way you looked at me, 
As though, I madeYour day, 
(Girl I could forget), 
The love We made, 

Felt, so good,
To me,
How could this be,
A girl just like me,
Who knows, the things,
I need,
(How could this be)
(A girl just like me)
My First Love, (Love)x4 

My first kiss,
I came across, a bliss,
How could I forget,
How it made me feel, girl

I'm still, in love,
With you,
In the back of my mind,

I like your love

I like your love
It's pure, it's innocent
and I don't think I've seen this before

You replenish my reserves before it's necessary 
you lift my wings up and 
make me superior to my adversary 
Creatively providing the exact amount of 
what I need to go another day
I like your love
and for as long as you'll have me I'll stay

You make me comfortable in my space
What she share cannot be replaced
with any other type of love
be it artificial or tainted or lustfully blatant 
Those illusions don't exist because
we found this love and we claimed it

I cherish those nights when I scratch your head
When you sit between my thighs and I twist your dreads
We become an us that is so pure
that the spring waters question the purity of it's source
I like your love - it's a divine force

The Crying Joker

#2 To those who have met me Through this journey we call life May you be a family member Longtime friend or loving wife My mission was to bring you happiness And put a big smile on your face To do this brought me joy A feeling you can't replace At times it my have been sillyness That would bring tears to both our eyes To see this would mean fulfillment To every joker that cries So I hope I completed my mission At sometime or someplace To bring you tears of joy Along with a big smile on your face

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

Well I'm Sorry Baby

I'm here to tell you, if a man lay a hand on you, it's not love.
So don't you dare think it, it's time to move on and find you a new home. 
But if you  decide to take him back, expect for the worse.
Get ready for the apologizing and this is how it's gone go.
Well I'm sorry baby, it's not gonna happen again, 
he will say that he is going to change, 
so can we get back together again
Then he will do the same thing again if u take him back.
He will make you pay for doing that.
You may say to yourself that you love him.
But he don't love you too, so do what's best and let him loose.
You may not take my advice, your mother advice or your father advice.
So you are saying you rather fight,  but it is not really fighting when he is only hitting you
And leaving bruises all over you.
Then you will hear the same thing all over again
Well I'm sorry baby, it's not gonna happen again, 
he will say that he is going to change, 
so can we get back together again
Most likely you will take him back again
Because you do love him, but the sad thing about it, he does the same thing all over again
Your life is still full of hearthache and pain
He puts you in the hosoital this time
You still belive he hasn't commented a crime.  
Your family talks to you about it, and the police do too
You say you rather not file charges. and your family says he don't love you
But you still believes he do
So he shows up at the hospital and says the same thing again
Well I'm sorry baby, it's not gonna happen again, 
he will say that he is going to change, 
so can we get back together again
But again you take him back, at first he real  sweet and nice.
He takes you out to dinner, and tells you sweet things in you ear.
What he doesn't know you really don't want him near.  
Then down drops a tear, you ask him do he love you?
He just sits therer with starer.  
Then he says I do love you, more then life itself.  
He reaches over to kiss you.
You move back with fear.
He says come on we're going home dear.  
Then when yall reach the house, he hits you in the mouth.  
Sop then he knocks you to the floor.  
Then you say, "No More"
You get up and run to the closet, and pull out a gun. 
You point it at him. and told him to get back
You say that you are leaving, and your not coming back
He says you're not leaving, and charge you with force.  
Which we all know it wasn't, you will charged with murder one, and tell me what for
What did he ever do for you , but not love you

Almaz Made The Flowers Arrange-

As I did gaze upon her for the first time as she labored in small shop in what appeared to be 
a hole in a wall that open into this place where she did work all day. Almaz was an Ethiopian 
beauty with gorges reddish color hair which was filled with big curly locks that seem to flow 
into an endless chasm of never ending twist and turns, with a smile that seem to light up that 
tiny little room. A rare beauty was she to behold, elegant yet graceful and humble in her 
soul…as I did watch her as she did strategically place each flower by hand one by one and 
with each gentile twist or turn of her soft golden tone skin colored hands until a work of art 
was form inside of each vase that they did adorn.  

Sometimes the vases were made of glass or maybe of some type of fine cultivated stone …
but each one that was made to become a work of art made to express someone else’s 
declared love or concern for a love of family member or even the lost of an unrequited love 
and she did do her best to express their thoughts with the arrangement made from the heart. 
With her beautiful brown eye’s that seem to tell a story of a pain and a deep love for her 
family… that she displayed with each piece of work that she did make. With each day of hard 
work in this small shop where she toiled all day in her endless attempt to repay her family 
for a debt that she so desperately wanted to repay…for it was the love of her father that had 
brought Almaz the flower arranger to this place. 

So many people do take the love of their family for granted, but… no not this lady…no not 
this lady…no not her ever, not even for a second in a day. Almaz made the flowers arrange 
all day, all for a debt of love that she wanted to repay. Little did she know that it was already 
repaid in full… with a father’s silent pray of love to see his daughter in a place where her 
dreams could blossom in the promise land, were no Kings are crowned or Queens ruled, but 
in this place of commoners were freedom was born to rule. Were even the poorest of men 
could rise to the highest office in the land. Truly your father has completed his arrangement 
in the vase with the most beautiful flower that he could find to place it in for the whole world 
to see, Almaz you are that flower that completes his arrangement.

Heart and Soul

~ Heart & Soul ~

It’s not just about that one person
You can’t imagine your life without
It’s so much more than that

It’s waking up each morning
Knowing you have a family who loves you
It’s a group of friends 
Who care about you 
Not just 
Some made up version of you

It’s that feeling you get when you help someone out
Or when a dream comes true

It can be happy or sad
It can lift you up or break you down
It can break your heart
Or it can heal you
Yet one thing is true

If you have felt it even once
You’ll never want to let it go

It has so many forms 
With so many different ways you can feel it
Even a day to celebrate it 

It is a feeling that 
Is hard to live without 
Those who have never felt it 
They are the ones I feel sorry for

A four letter word 
That says so much
Means so much 
Has such an impact on so many lives

It’s so important 
In so many ways
A couple just starting out
Two people spending the rest of their lives together
A family
A lifelong dream
And so much more
A feeling
Called Love
I prefer to

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

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!

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

Mom and Dad

Riding my first bike and learning to tie my shoes,
These memories mean nothing without the two of you.

I've learned a lot over the years,
Not that the lessons didn't sometimes come with tears.

Sweet dreams, I love you and good night, 
I remember saying this as you turned out the light.

Four kids and you two were always there,
To teach us and guide us with love and care.

We are your children and you have raised us right,
Taught us everything we know and all about life.

You taught us to work for what we need,
Even though your advice we didn't always heed.

I've seen the love and commitment that you two share,
It makes me proud and understand that what you have is rare.

You've stuck by each other even when times were rough,
But you've always showed me that love is enough.

Love is what gets you through the not so good days,
You've always been together and by each other's side you've stayed.

I am blessed and thankful for all that you are and all you are yet to be,
Cause without you two there wouldn't be me.

You have never failed to love me over the years and in the past,
I that God that I have you two as my mom and dad.

Give me a hug
squeeze me tight
I want to hear your breath
next to mine
Tell me a story
so i can laugh,
tickle me till my voice
runs dry

Say goodbye
before you leave
I will miss you so, if you don't
Oh can't you see
I'm afraid you will just
go away without
a hello or a goodbye

I am showing you my love
can't you see
why are you 
turning yours away from me

I will tickle you 
and tell you stories
again and again
If you will say goodbye
Just one more time
to, me

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

Ride The Snake

Thy brother, strong, straight and true,
to the core, his blood flows, fast and through.
I love him dearly, ever since his birth,
what an incredible gift from mother Earth.
Mad as a cut snake, I'd hate to cross.
You did? You C@#T! Ha Ha, your loss.
Boxer and Biker, to the very core, 
F@#$%n crazy Outlaw.
His heart is enormous, as big as Ayres Rock, 
the man is solid, no muppet could knock.
F@#k yeah! 
I love him to death,
till my last rattle of breath.
Not long now to go, 
I will see him in time, 
my brother, my brother,
dear friend of mine.

Forever Love

Your gut feeling
Tells you it’s real
Yet he’ll tell you
It’s no big deal 

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

The hints he gives
But will deny
Living this way
You sometimes cry.		

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

Can you believe?
The truth is told?
Phone calls to her
Seem rather bold.		

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

”Do not worry”
For this you say
“We are just friends”
You talk each day.		

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

Your vows you took
They did not say
Having this friend
Would be okay.		

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

So torn apart
This life you lead
Choose me or her
For which you need.		

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

You turn your back
Been here before
I hate to see
You shut that door.		

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

I can’t do this
For you must choose
If it is her
Then me you’ll lose.		

The trust and lies
They run so deep
Forever Love
You wish to keep.

For the Dying Orphan

I let you die for my name As you reached for my hands Out of waters of drowning What a hypocrite this writer is The Hatred of Solitude Letting an orphan dream Then destroy him with knowledge Of what you have done He opened up to you In new ways But in nostalgic guises The springwinds whisper blithe yore But the winterwinds, much stronger Caress you with the dreams of your funeral sky “It was you… it was your fault… Letting the one who was so open to you Be the laugh… the piece in the game…”

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.

My Perfect Christmas Gift

On christmas eve I wait
sitting by the door
wishing he would come
but not hoping any more

In my heart I know he won't
so I don't know why I wait
I think that I should go to bed
it's getting awfully late

I wake up in the morning 
to a damp pillow near my head
then I hear a voice down stairs 
and I sit up in my bed

I run down the hall 
to the living room to see
the greatest gift that anyone
could ever give to me

my father's sitting on the couch
it's then I finally know
that god listend to my prayers
all that's missing is the bow.

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.”

Help her

Everyday she watches 
sitting in that chair
her heart pounding 
constantly she stares

everyday she listens
to the reasuring sound
a steady beep a rythm
meaning a heart beat  can be found

every night she worries
when she's told that she must go
yet she knows she must be strong
her fears she must not show

everynight she comforts
her little brothers cries
while she hopes he doesn't see
the worry in her eyes

every morning she wakes up
and takes her brother to his school
then heads back up to the hospital
even though there's nothing she can do

she stays a bit then leaves
heading off to her job
but she's only seventeen
at schools where she belongs

bills to pay mouths to feed
stressing her young mind
she too young to know what to do
she's stumbling around blind

every day she worries
while she struggles to get by
everyday she watches
as her mother slowly dies

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…

Arguing with one another
Texting back and forth
Owen drives in the blizzard
Kurt is at home

Kurt sends Owen another message
"why did you tell them about me doing drugs?"
"that wasnt your place, i dont care if there your parents too"
"shouldnt i be the one to tell them?"

Owen tries to reply to the message Kurt has sent him
He loses control of the wheel
driving into a field 
Kurt recieves a message from Owen
"Im sorry I..."
The message was never finished
The car slamming into a tree
The tree branch breaks through the window
Thrashing into Owens stomach
As Owens head slams back and forth
The car is left smoking

Kurt knows something is wrong
but leaves things be

50 Minutes Later...."

Kurt and Owen's parent recieve a call from the police
"Is this the parent of Owen Everdeen?" the police ask
the mother answers "yes is something wrong? is it Owen, what did he do now?"
"Mam', Your son was in a accident, they are life flighting him to the hospital"
She drops the phone, and grabs her purse and yells at Kurt to come on.

She drives fast to get to the hospital to see her son
Owen was life flighted to the hospital
The police had to use the jaws of life to get him out of his car

They finally make it to the hospital
The Dr. asking "Are you the mother of Owen?"
She cries "yes, where is my son?"
Kurt stands upset at himself for fighting with Owen minutes before
Remembering Owens last text to him. "im sorry I.."

The Dr. explains to the mother 
"Owen didnt make it"
She sits in sadness
She cannot breathe

Kurt runs after the Dr.
"this cant be, he has to be ok" as he starts to cry.
Just the night before him and his brother
Were playing guitar hero together
Remembering the last moment
The arguing
The reqruet Kurt is now feeling

"Owen Ryan Everdeen: Jan. 1st, 1990- December 8th, 2011"
To a good brother and a great friend, im sorry about all those times i have let you down
Im sorry for yelling at you that night, and causing your crash, the guilt i feel wont leave
I am sorry that you went through that, and left this world that way, forgive me for what i 
have caused. I love you.

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

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

My rhymes are timeless while this time is lifeless
why is life this kind less, reminds me that this
mind is spineless ready to tip and quit, as
my lies become mindless and get swollen shut
and Stuck up inside my sinus
Drivin in my prime but with no optimus
Victim to the flip-side of the Midas
Running through my blood like a virus
The sun makes my skin mundane
rubbin on ben gay but get arthritis
touch spermicide and converts to hepatitis
I hit the plus sign but it just musters up a minus
I'm seen sucking my thumb like the peanut's Linus
I run and duck when I hear the sirens cause
I abducted the president's Nike air pumps
now air force one is trying to find us
I'm at my desk obsessin about success but
This whole time its been right behind us

Here For You

There’s so many words I could say,
But none of them will do.
Nothing I can say, 
Will change what has been done.
You probably hate me,
But know that I still love you.

I feel nothing but empty awkwardness,
Whenever I’m around you,
So I’m sorry for that.
I didn’t mean to take it this far.

You’ll always be my big sister,
Nothing can ever change that.
And I’ll always be here for you,
So if you need a shoulder to cry on,
And even if you hate me,
I’ll be here for you.

You don't have to say, "I love you"
For mom and dad to know you do 
It's felt in the warmth of your touch 
That they are cared for so much 
And most especially today!

You are there when they are weak 
A voice when they can't speak 
You are a hand that lightens loads 
A comfort when the storm billows 
You are eyes to help them see 
All the things that need to be 
Their feet when they can't walk 
An ear when they need to talk

No, You don't have to say, "I love you" 
For mom and dad to know you do 
It's felt in the warmth of your touch 
That they are cared for so much 
And most especially today!

You are a light on their dark days 
Friend and daughter in so many ways 
You have Dehaan run by the store 
To bring groceries and so much more 
Give time when there's little to spare 
A thousand ways you show you care 
"Jamie" sayings that make them smile 
Your always going the second mile

No, You don't have to say, "I love you" 
For mom and dad to know you do 
It's felt in the warmth of your touch 
That they are cared for so much 
And most especially today!
Yeah, you don't have to say, "I love you" 
But they are so glad that you do! 
And most especially today!

So many songs describe how i feel
But you wouldnt have the time to listen to them
To actually figure out what they meant
Or how much they related to me
If i died today i can say the only
Thing you would miss
Is me trying to make you smile
Things have been depressing me for years
All the anger i hold is real
Falling further into soemthing
You wouldnt want me to be
I know if i told you 
You would be confused
You wouldnt know what you did
To make me do what im about to do
I let myself cry to long
That i buried myself alive on the inside
I wish i could shut you out
And let you go away for a long time
I guess its better that i trapped myself in my own way
At one point the chain broke away
And i had my own time
I took an early flight and i made it home
I realized how unfair you were being
Everyone always got more than i did
Got your attention
More than i did
If i played my bass 
Would you hear the anger behind it?
If i let you read my poems
Would you understand why im writing it?
If i told you i thought about doing something bad
Would you try to make everything i hate about you better?
I dont think you understand 
Maybe i should explain more
Or would i bore you?
So you know
I wanted a father
But instead i had a dad
To me
It hurt
It still does
And i watched myself die
From hurting so much
Cutting my heart out
On the inside
Im different 
In so many ways
My friends give me more complaments
Then my mother has my whole life
"thats good" isnt what i want from you
I would rather have you really 
Grasping the meaning behind why
I am writing poems
The meaning behind why i draw
Or play the bass
Even if i died i wouldnt think
You would get it
If i did what im going to do
I would have you right where i want you
If you want me back
Your going to have to ask
Nicer than that
Things in my life are different than yours
I see things differently
I love music
And i want you to see that
I talk to you through my music
I talk to you through my poems
I talk to you through my bass guitar
You cant trust me?
I lied to you?
Dont you remember when 
You told me you would give me up
for adoption when i was born?
That hurt more than anything
Yes you kept me
BUt you thought about giving me up
Just like you gave up on me ten years later
This will be the last of me
And i hope you understand now
That you are my problem
That you are the one
I couldnt trust
That you were the one who lied
What else could i hide
When i have been an open 
Book his whole time
and you couldnt see it?

All About Her

I dont know much about her
but I heard she wasnt that talkative
She didnt like being alive
She was numb to all the pain she had to go through

I heard she didnt like anything that was green
She ate roman noodles everynight for supper
She always wore flannels and bellbottoms
Sometimes i seen her wear dresses and fancy tops
But lately shes been wearing band shirts

She wears converse shoes and uses an army bag for school
I know that she dosent like to communicate through talking... only through her peoms
or sometimes even her songs.

I see her drawing and painting all the time
She draws famous people
She would like to be famous and not so unknown
When she tries to speak to anyone they always walk away and leave her alone

When she gets home she goes upstairs to play her bass guitar
She hates chocolate cake but loves chocolate
Her family left her behind because she cant forget her past

Sometimes when shes alone she contemplates the meaning behind her life
Her favorite color is gray because her life is black and white
Everything she says is false according to the world

She is not so innocent
I understand that she dreams about the perfect life
When she opens her eyes they are pitch black

She is someone that is fake
She acts nothing like she should
She is very grungy and unclean

She knows of no safety
and of no time
Her life is smashed into pieces by the giant sun

She will always be a ghost
She knows of no god
She crawls around in the world of death
She remains forgotten

3 Angels

I never got to touch your face
I hid a faded smile
my 3 Angels were placed
to comfort me a while
I never got to feel you grow
or become a rising star
I pray that you will never know
of this hidden scar

I never said the word hello
as I welcomed you to life
the only word I was allowed 
was the saddest word goodbye

I never got to see you grin
or hear you laugh out loud
I never got to tuck you in
or watch you sleep so sound

I never said the word hello
as I welcomed you to life
the only word I was allowed 
was the saddest word goodbye

just as the years go by
rain will come and go
but ill always hold you inside
i just wanted you to know

I never said the word hello
as I welcomed you to life
the only word I was allowed 
was the saddest word goodbye

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

More Then Just Lines

I think I've seen you in my dreams, you're matching every description.
Your love is like a drug, I'd kill to fill the prescription.
You give me so much excitement, like when babies are born.
You're the only flower I see that's in this garden of thorns.
You must be Jamaican, because you're Jamaican me crazy.
Let's get a place together and maybe raise up a baby.
A lot of people call me Trav, but you can call me tonight.
You have the most beautiful eyes in the world, just like the stars they shine bright.
If I told you that you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?
You could make a shy guy try and make a blind man see.
If I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put U and I together.
You've got me floating like a feather, and I want to feel this way forever.
You may think these are just lines, or maybe all the above,
but please read this with your heart, because you're the woman I love.

Better Days Are Coming

We might not be rich
we might not be poor
Happy with what we have
but we ask for more

Nothing too expensive
nothing too cheap
Something for our pockets
so we can get some sleep

We need food on our table
and gas in our car
What we have in the bank
won't get us very far

Having each other
that's what counts
Clipping coupons 
and getting discounts

Lighting a few candles
instead of the lights
Not having a heater
on those very cold nights

Better days are coming
just wait and see
I promise you that
my family

The Lonely Grinch's Carol

Decorated tree with lights and bells
Standing free from walls and shelves

Blissful youth keep warbling chants
Wrathful me grow scalding hands

My gnashing teeth and pounding heart
My crashing joy their humming part

A youngster sits on Santa’s lap
Her buoyant wish wreck my nap

Fathers and mothers at home with sons
Assembling round the tree with songs

Carols and hymns pleasant in ear
I hate to sing but love to hear

A lonely Grinch I break in tear
To see them sing and dance in cheer

Merry Christmas not hard to hear
I bow and say Happy New Year

Pushed as for across the line as he can go
feeling more and more disappointed in his self 
His mother doesn't let him be who he wants
He reads her his poem but she just laughs
Telling him he won't get anywhere
She was disappointed in what he has become
He writes a poem about real things
But people just take it as words
Words have no meaning to them
Have you read his new poem? 
Yea I didn't understand it
I wonder why he writes about sad stuff
Will he find god?
Nah there just words

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.

Apology Song

I just didn’t think, 
Did not allow my thoughts to sink,
In my troubled head,
It seems I was misled,
By a part of me, I yearned to find,
A part of me, I left behind,

Minutes past 11 and seconds to midnight,
As I wandered in the dark, something wasn’t quite right,
I didn’t stop to sit and think these things through,
I didn’t stop to think how it may affect you.
As I analyse from every angle and every part,
I want you to know, just followed my heart.

I just didn’t know, 
Did not know where I was to go,
In my troubled head, 
That little voice I dread,
Told me to go on and not even turn back,
My wisdom buried and everything turned black.

After one train and hours sitting in the cold,
I finally realize I was feeling quite bold,
I knew those next bus rides would create some fear,
But I kept telling myself that I mustn’t shed a tear, while I’m here.
I had to find her before she took her own life,
But she only wanted mine, as I saw her hold that knife.

I just didn’t say, 
Didn’t say if I was okay,
In your troubled head,
You may have thought me dead,
But that voice murmured,
And told me to come back, I replied with one word,
I did come back, and I kept my word,
I kept my promise and I know that she heard.

I just didn’t think,
Did not allow my thoughts to sink,
In my troubled head, 
It seems I was misled,
By a part of me, I couldn’t see,
A part of me, I found in friends and family.

I did run away, and I know I did wrong,
I did run away, and I know I did wrong,
I did run away, and I know I did wrong.

The reasons why, in my apology song,
Listen to this rhyme, my apology song,
This rhyme’s for you, my apology song.

"FOREVER" was inspired by the pain and heartache people go through.

Dedicated to those who have grief in their life over a loved one, whether they are alive, deceased, sick or in pain.... They will be FOREVER with you in your heart....

Every time I see your face
I wanna feel your warm embrace.
I wanna hold you in my arms,
I'm gonna keep you in my heart... Forever.
Forever... you'll always be there.
I'll hold you close i'll hold you dear,
No matter where you are I know that you will always be here...
By my side, Forever....
By my side, No questions of why... Cuz you ALWAYS care.
Every time I see your face
I wanna feel your warm embrace.
I wanna hold you in my arms,
I'm gonna keep you in my heart.
You'll always be there by my side,
No Questions of why,
Cuz you always care... for 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

Wanna Be A Mom

My love
Sweet lover
Can't wait anymore

My heart
Fragile heart
Is seeming to break

My flesh
My blood
I wish to hold dear

A girl
Small girl

The Deadly Dart

Wherever I go through out my whole life,
I end up struggling with lots of strife.
Thinking that my life is a total waste,
Wanting it to be over in a haste.

I can feel the pain inside my own heart,
Like someone through at my a deadly dart.
The wound is easing deeper and deeper,
Will the pain ever stop getting bigger?

Feeling emo is never a good thing,
Cutting your arm makes a really bad sting.
Blood is dripping from my arms and my heart,
Failing to dodge the largest deadly dart.

Drowning in all the lies and self pity,
I live each day but always feel sh*tty.
I have lots of thoughts about suicide,
But then I think about those who have died.

Those who have died not just from suicide,
But also those who are really nice guys.
...This "poem" was actually suppose to be a couplet (on any thing you want) for my english 
class but i made this kind bcuz i was feeling emo that day...and also after i was done i read it 
over and it almost sound like a rap song which, i guess, is kinda funny and cool.........

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

My Family and Me

It's amazing how quick things can change.
First your running with the kings, and then you're knocked out of range.
It's strange. I used to worry and stress over friends.
Now I've grown to be a man. Maybe know a few of them.
All that time I could of studied. Did better in school.
Got a job and made it big. Maybe now I'd be cool.
Who's the fool? Now who's the bull? I know that's not me on the top.
Life is always making turns weather you like it or not.
The past will always be the past. My glory days may seem gone.
But, now its time to start a new.The stories keep coming on.
I've got a new girl. She means the world to me.
She keeps me warm at night, my best friend, my new dream.
Since my car accident, still got a limp on one side.
Still working with my memory, still need a friend who can drive.
I love to Karaoke. I get noticed in bars.
My mom's always there to catch me. Tom's working with my mom's cars.
My sister's in the Army, my niece is a big part of my life,
Friend Zach keeps assholes off me, and God is my wife.
AJ's always there to help, Brian is my LOST bud,
Mary's out of school, Lil cousin, Hunter's a stud.
Grandpa still is my idol, JT is still the music man .
The Adam's still can party. Chris, living good on the sand.
I may only use one hand, but I plan to be the best.
At all I do in life, cause there's not that much time left.
The blood test that I took says Landon is mine.
I hope this all works out fine in time and help to make my son's life shine.
JC who's down in Georiga, my heart is screaming for you.
I hope that you recover well. It can't be worse then what I went through.
Uncle Jimmy where you at? Where's Matt, Corie, and Pete?
I know you all are doing good. Serviolo's are a hard team to beat.
How's the rest of the family? I love and miss you all!
I hope you all are standing tall and I pray we never fall.
These last words that I say, I say only to you.
We've got the best family in the world and you know I LOVE YOU!

away with the sun

Its getting late
but you already came 
and while you were here
things never change 
you lay with me
and tell me your words
then you leave 
and I feel hurt.
Its not you that hurts me 
but the sound of the door
closing behind you 
I know for sure 
you'd like to stay 
but you never do
I'm left alone 
missing you. 
These days its more frequent 
you leave so much
that you're gone more hours 
than the day brings sun
and I have begun 
to feel so numb
when the door closes 
another night I run
far away from the thoughts I have 
because its killing me to look
at my empty hands
I remember when we were on the sand 
you told me you loved me
but you weren't my man 
and so I walked, feeling okay
but too many months 
now I want you to stay
Am I selfish?
asking too much?
You only visit me an hour
after dusk
and I must go on
but should I stay?
when you see me sometimes
but its always too late.

More than weather, can be frightful or Unseasonal Christmas

Used to be the weather was frightful
People covered themselves from head to toe
Now, despite the fact it’s Christmas season
I see more sand, than I see snow
The temperatures keep on elevating
To the moon, they just seem to rise
Oh, where is the Christmas of yesterday
The rosy cheeks, windows fogged with ice

It’s just too warm now for Christmas
Too hot to shop, too hot to run around
Santa’s working at the pole in a speedo
That’s nothing, we wanna see come to town

Frosty, it seems we’re not gonna see him
Heat miser, now, has gotten his day
Can’t ole Jack Frost do something about this
And chase the warm weather away
No need to chop wood set for burning
The heated air replaces that in the hearth
I hope it gets cold and very soon, too
Because Christmas puts warmth in everyone’s heart

It’s just too warm now for Christmas
Too hot to shop, too hot to run around
Santa’s working at the pole in a speedo
That’s nothing, we wanna see come to town

Oh, when Christmas day finally gets here
Right now, I’ll tell ya, all I wanna see
Are people with scarves and gloves on their hands
And snow bringing life to all barren trees
I want the temps to chill me right to the bone
That’s when I’ll know it’s Christmas time
Who wants to look up and see a sleigh
With a fat man in a speedo, flying around

It’s just too warm now for Christmas
Too hot to shop, too hot to run around
Santa’s working at the pole in a speedo
That’s nothing, we wanna see come to town

Sweet Sorrow

“Close your eyes and think of me” the end is almost near
We’ve stood together righta along through for oh so many years
The kid has gone, I lost your hand, yet, I see us, oh so clear
memories, all those memories of you and me my dear.

The porch swing’s a swayin’ like it did “when you were down and out.”
And the radio’s a playin’ and the guitars strumming, oh so, proud.
It’s almost midnight and the train’s whistlin’ though the clouds
I’m thinkin’ of you baby and I’m sing our song out loud.

“So let it out and let it in” let the tears of sweet sorrow end                 
Let me hear your voice baby, I’m tired of that strummin’ mans grin.
My guitar man, we had our chance, so, let your sweetheart mend
return to your one and only for this last bit of pretend. 

Gotta go baby and that “makes me blue” sorry just don’t cut, true 
But, I know I’ll see there up there in heavens holy queue.
I made mistakes and you made yours too, now all we got is blues
But, I have my memories dear and most of them are you.

I'm Sleeping Outside

I've tried to tamper with such precious time
Looked forward and back with open eyes
I wonder about the day I'll die
Will there be rain or shine?
Maybe both, maybe none
As I speak another life has begun
Wish them luck as they carry on
Bewildered within these starry nights
I thought of time when I have lied
Oh such precious time
It flies
(im sleeping outside)
Signs and dreams lead me to believe
That somehow, some way
I'll be something great
Do I choose to be nieve?
They'll never know
Do I choose to be so weak?
It'll never show
(I'll be sleeping outside)
Love is such a clishey it seems
Something I could only see
Her eyes drew us in like summer heat 
Cupids arrows were made of clay
Oh yes I've longed for this day
I knew I wasnt lying anymore
(I always sleep outside
where the weather is nice
I can feel everything for what it's worth
dont give me signs or written lines
give me your solid words)

Flesh and Blood

Flesh and Blood
Dedicated to my brother Nick 

I’m sick of the games you play
Being selfish in every way
So easy for you to point the blame
Never the one to take the shame 

This is my flesh and blood 
And I’m gonna save him from your flood
I’ll carry him through the end 
If that’s what it takes
To watch his broken heart mend 

Through the years 
My brother had to bottle up the tears 
Rejected because he was different from the rest 
Set up to fail every single test 

This is my flesh and blood 
And I’m gonna save him from your flood
I’ll carry him through the end 
If that’s what it takes
To watch his broken heart mend

You, You hypocrite! 
You’re just a fake 
I’m gonna laugh when this is thrown back in your face
I dare you to give him your best shot 
Because I’m gonna be there to give you all that I got 
Everyone is shoving him to curb
So I’m gonna give you what you deserve 

This is my flesh and blood 
And I’m gonna save him from your flood
I’ll carry him through the end 
If that’s what it takes
To watch his broken heart mend

Feburary 27th 2012 i lost the most important person in my life. Helen

I was at a goodwill, when i prayed to her that i would find a metallica shirt. I was then looking through the shirts and found two metallica shirts. I got them both. i started wondering if it was her, if she answered my prayer. A few days later i had a dream. She was standing in the window yelling down at me telling me she bought me something and it was on her bed in a bag. i told her how much i missed her and i went to go see what it was. i open the bag on the bed and see the two metallica shirts i had bought at that goodwill. i now know that she answered my prayer.

Another dream i had.

I had often wondered if she considered me a grandchild.. because im not realted to her by blood. I had a dream it was at her funeral. i seen her sitting in a chair next to me. my sister and some of her grandchildren were carrying her casket to the hurse. My sister fell and dropped the casket and several of her family members were yelling at her. Helen the women who these dreams are about sat and said she loved all her grandchildren even if there not blood related.

I believe Helen answers my questions in my dreams.

Spring flower

Spring flower.

A spring flower blossomed gaily 
In the year of 0 0 two
As Jakob entered all our lives
And a ladies dreams came true
Her love it was unfolding
In this joy that she be holding
That turned her life and made her all brand new.

He had a face of beauty 
I sensed the Buddha there
As all around that little room
Pure love was everywhere
And life it whispered to me
So warm and tenderly
This gift be yours, to love eternally.

Life whispered to me gaily 
“this gentle child be born
To heal those ancient hurts in you
With the love within his form”

I held him to me gently
With all the love in me
As I gazed into his little face
So warm and tenderly
And I said “my love, I give to thee
Yes I will love you endlessly
My love it be until eternity“.

26 August 2002.

Cellar Door Escape The Fate

We walk through the doorway, heard you calling from the hall
To find you in the bedroom not breathing at all
I drag your body to the cellar where we lay, 
the wax it melts away, 
I kiss your face...
Now we are starting to love you more,
your body's on the canvas, 
That I painted on the floor
Now you wait,
like the drug, 
like the change in the pain it goes on for so long
And oh,
now it hurts in the worst way, 
now that you're gone, 
its so wrong,
its so wrong....
If I could take you somewhere,
I'd take you to my darkest place, 
scatter you in art forms, admire the whore,
beauty in different ways your hands on picture frames, 
your eyes in the glass wear your face as a mask
Now they are starting to love you more, 
a gallery of your beauty no charge at the door
As you wait, 
like the drug, 
like the change in the pain it goes on for so long
And oh, 
now it hurts in the worst way, 
now that your gone, 
it's so wrong, 
it's so wrong....
And down below your veins run dry your vacant eyes, 
I lost control your face is pale, 
your body's cold
And down below your veins run dry your vacant eyes, 
I lost control your face is pale, 
your body's cold
(face is pale your body's cold )
Wait, like the drug, 
like the change in the pain it goes on for so long
And oh, now it hurts in the worst way, 
now that your gone, 
it's so wrong, 
it's so wrong...

A Christmas Dream

Over the blasts of mortar shells,
He heard the sound of jingle bells;
And when he closed his tired eyes,
He got a Christmas Day surprise.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

From across the world, so far away,
In a foreign land on Christmas Day;
Sleeping with his fatigues still on,
His boy’s voice was a Christmas song.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

Please remember our service heroes,
Scattered throughout the world,
As we celebrate with our families,
The good will they hope to build.

He woke up to a flash of light,
And screams resounding in the night;
He charged forward to help his peers;
With his son’s voice ringing in his ears.

Snow was fall’n and his boy was call’n:
“Daddy, can we go down now?
I think it’s clear, Santa’s been here
And Daddy got home some how.
We are a family, Daddy, Mom and me
On this Christmas Day;
I’m with you, my wish came true,
The one to Baby Jesus I did pray.”

Forever Your Man

I'm very outgoing, yeah I talk to some girls,
but you got to understand, you're the queen of my world.
Honey, If I had the money, I would glitter your life.
I'd buy you diamond rings and I would make you my wife.
It's true, you've put me through, I'm stuck to you like super glue.
I just wouldn't know what I'd do without you as my boo!
I stand grand in this land, with you at my hand.
How can I make you understand that I'm forever your man?
You're like the leader of the band and I'm your number one fan!
You're totally fine, you're fun, crazy, sexy, and cool.
So glad you're mine, the one, that makes the other boys drool.
When I think about the times I brought a tear to your eye,
It makes me break down and cry. Sometimes I wish I would die.
Girl, you are my Angel. You were sent from above.
You saved me from this hell and filled my life up with love.
Where we'll go from here on out is a mystery to me,
but I know I'll be all right with you, always, next to me!

More Than Yesterday

She says she feels the days upon her The many years she’d seen fly I tell her not to ever worry There is no reason for her to cry The worry she has thrust upon her So much weight for her to take She’s not alone; I’ll be there with her Through every night and morning’s wake Wanna take her Wanna hold her And let her know Despite we’re older I love her… more than yesterday I’ll protect her I’ll console her And let her know Just as I’ve told her I love her… more than yesterday There is no curse that we can’t conquer No sickness, together, we can’t cure I tell her this, because I love her And we’ll get past, of this I’m sure She smiles and behind I still see tears The worry she buries deep inside Trying not to show just how she feels But concern is one thing she just can’t hide Wanna take her Wanna hold her And let her know Despite we’re older I love her… more than yesterday I’ll protect her I’ll console her And let her know Just as I’ve told her I love her… more than yesterday Tomorrow, I tell her, is ours forever A love letter of life, eternally writing That hope and thoughts will keep us going Down our golden roads, a life exciting Wanna take her Wanna hold her And let her know Despite we’re older I love her… more than yesterday I’ll protect her I’ll console her And let her know Just as I’ve told her I love her… more than yesterday

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

Damien's Lullabye

Hush little baby, it’s all right, 
Go on and get some sleep tonight. 
I will be here when you rise. 
Go on and rest your weary eyes. 

Hush little baby, don’t make a sound,
Remember me when I’m not around. 
I am watching you where you lie.
Quiet little baby, please don’t cry.

Hush little baby, don’t make a move,
Your body is mine to sooth. 
Take a breath, release it slow.
I will be with you wherever you go.

Hush little baby, hold on tight,
I'll love you with all my might.
I promise you that I will wait.
Arms wide open at Heavens gate.

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

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.

Looking for Tomorrow: Lyrics and Song

You can hear here:

I can't believe...that it's all gone
Some people I know, they've wandered on
Some have stayed,
While some have gone
I don't even know
But I go
Looking for tomorrow
I'm looking for tomorrow

And in this time, when money's scarce
I can't decide which is worst
Whether I miss bills
Or miss my kids
I don't even know
But I go
Looking for tomorrow
I'm looking for tomorrow

I'm looking for tomorrow
We're all looking for tomorrow

Maybe tomorrow will see us through
Until then, what else can I do?

I'm looking for tomorrow
Yeah, working for tomorrow
We're all looking for tomorrow
Looking for tomorrow

Christmas in July!

The family is all gathered, Just like Christmas Day; All lined up in bikini’s, Soaking up the ray’s; The beach front sure is hot, In the middle of July; On the deck catchin’ catfish, So we can have a catfish fry; Playin’ beach volleyball, In Daisy Duke shorts; With friends and family, Of all different sorts; At night there’s a bonfire, We’re all makin’ S’mores; It’s so nice to spend, Our Christmas outdoors; It’s a gift to be here together, And that’s what Christmas brings; It doesn’t matter the time of year, From winter to summer to spring; And I sure love when Christmas, Comes around in July; All those warm and fuzzy feelings, When the temperature is high!

Autumn Giggles

Horizontal Vertigo --
amongst the wet raked leaves,
Gazing into gorgeous blue; 
where clouds --
Are passing frogs or horses;
In a pair of grass-stained Levi’s.

A subtle wind --
Tickles all the colored leaves,
So drenched in spattered sunlight;
Still falling --
As she rakes the cooling leaves;
So brilliant --
Over happy giggles.

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.

Hold Me Now

Maybe this isnt something to say
to someone like you
someone i could never be
something i dont want anyone to see
so ill hold it in
until i explode
hold me now 
im standing on the edge of
the bridge
nothing to hold on to
I only want someone to save me
but how can you if your blind
and you cannot see the dangers around you
so you keep them until they get so close
to your face and finally explode
then you see
hold me now
cause im already 6 feet into the ground

Christmas is Coming

Christmas is coming. Christmas is coming. Christmas is coming. What are you doing this year? Jingle bells are rattling, Santa's come tapping, On your roof is, Dasher and Dancer, And Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid, And Donner and Blitzen. Here comes Rudolph! Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming, Your parents are loving, How your rooms clean. Its not like you're meeting the queen. Jingle bells are rattling, Santa's come tapping, On your roof is, Dasher and Dancer, And Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid, And Donner and Blitzen. Here comes Rudolph! Christmas is coming! It is amazing seeing the christmas lights, Passing as you're driving by. Seeing the snowmen, In northern Texas! Jingle bells are rattling, Santa's come tapping, On your roof is... Jingle bells are rattling, Santa's come tapping, On your roof is, Dasher and Dancer, And Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid, And Donner and Blitzen. Here comes Rudolph! Christmas is coming! The only question left, Is what are you giving, And what you're gonna get?

track 18

thanks for the tea, heres something about me
nothing beats poetry, sitting underneath a tree
thankin' my family for a strong identity
people watching cause its free, beauty in the scene
has me staring with a cheese, a smile at what i see
possibly a dream,  caught up mentally 
imagining a few things, with this human being
who has the sweetest energy, soulfood like collard greens
all fools falling means I'm really dumber than I seem
being intelligent isn't just from memory
its handling impermanence light and sensibly
and lady I'm feeling your sultry melodies
we'd be crowded if its three, sit and be my company
must be a chemistry major cause the reactions meant to be
the love we can achieve, is safe from any thieves
 hold em from my queen, hearts tucked into my sleeve

Good Times

its an all rights reserved kind of night
we all have the right to a good time
repeat 1x
Saturday night by the fire light
fire flies under a starlit sky..
yeah its all about the good times
its an all rights reserved kind of night
we all have the right to a good time 

Ice cold beers off the tap
red solo cups or Pabst by the can
music on the box, guitars in hand
memories soon forgotten, 
but pictures will reminds of the good times we had
whether you're a cousin, a neighbor, friend or next to kin
its all about family and when you're in you're in
there's no need to be fake or hide your face
because here its about the good times
yeah its all about the good times

its an all rights reserved kind of night
yeah we all have the right to a good time

yeah its all about the good times

My best friend.. Man, I've known him for years
through think and then... buddy its beer for beer
James Gang.. the originals
Midwest.. its something you wouldn't know
respect.. if you earned it you can hang
and if you can keep up you just might earn a name
what's mine is yours and you can keep your own
no need for a payback, but your word is gold
You can't judge a man by his cloths or is ride 
But it ain't a truck if it lacks four wheel drive and a bowtie
good times, its all about the good times

its an all rights reserved kind of night
yeah we all have the right to a good time
repeat 1x

Saturday night by the fire light
fire flies under a starlit sky..
yeah its all about the good times

its an all rights reserved kind of night
we all have the right to a good time 
its all about the good times
its an all rights reserved kind of night
are you ready for a good time
its all about the good times

The Road Of Casualty

I fall into unknown reasons
I lay wanting,needing
Convolution,soul sucked dry
Aphasia,alone within
A battered shell,augmental decay
Life slowly passes away
Debilitated to my dismay
An accidental tragedy has
lost the lives of many
The musk from last nights indulgence
still lingers and it accuses me
I have debased the family tree
Through my lost cognizance
The pain others must breath
Censoring all relations
A dissaproval of my being
The air as thick as sulpher
A cyanosis of the soul
I'm left alive to face it all
Retribution paid in full!!!

Living Above Judgment

I walk beside someone men judged.
A person born differently…
A baby in its mother’s arms
Not quite male; not quite female.
A heart of gold, but not perfect.
A soul faithful to its creator…
Crying when fellowmen pain.
Hardships befalling life remain.
Childhood teasing for the “Freak”
Ridiculed by other boys.
Unable to walk down the street…

Loved and cherished by family.

Waxing strong in stature, 
Before long… adulthood came.
Name calling by many strangers.
And gestures meant to defame.
Judging one soul without knowing.
Not bothering to see the light.
While inside a spirit grew…
Steel gray eyes defending right.
Justice honored by one of might!
By day, or in the dark of night,
Able to walk down the street…

Loved and cherished by family.

Head held high true to self
Feelings out in the open, 
Never again closed in a shelf.
Many loves and many friends…
God’s love and strength did not end.
No more acting as if a natural male.
No more wanting to be female
(More loving hearts…it seemed.)
But walking tall beside me…living.
No more pretending, 
One soul; one self; one God; we…
(Soul mates finally together.)

Loved and cherished by family.

.......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?

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.

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 that is all I need to type in my browser, should be the same for you. Mac users may not hear it the song.

How The Gods Kill

The sharpness of the blade
The toughness of my skin
The color of the blood that drips unto the pavement
The rush of pain i get

The calmness of holding it in my hands
The smell of the bullet reaching my mouth
The memories in my brain decease

Would you let everything go?
Just to feel alive again?

Can you end this moment of your life?
Show me how the gods kill

If you got no fear
Do you know the name of the one you saved?
If you want the answers
Go find the truth

Look inside your headless soul
There you will find the noose

Would you let everything go?
Just to feel alive again?

Can you show me how the gods kill?

As she went walking down the lane
The flowers seemed to bloom and rise
And as she walked she murmured Jane
The little sister gone for days

The trees grew tall the grass grew thick
But none of Jane did they find quick
She’s lost forever some did cry
She’s gone to heaven to the sky

I soon will find her she replied
And every day she looked and cried
Though time went by with out a trace
She did not find the little face

The trees grew tall the grass grew thick
But none of Jane did they find quick
She’s lost forever some did cry
She’s gone to heaven to the sky

Week then month then year went by
She walked the lane ever high
Rain nor snow nor sleet did stop
The now grown women from her walk

A Cinderella Story

She cant express herself
they push her away
they lock her up inside her own mind
if you look throught the hole you will see
the depression shes in

Shes just like cinderella
locked up and hid away
you have no idea
look throught the hole without the key
there is nothing left for her and me

You wanna take away everything
you just left her alone
tell me it aint so
tell me you wont leave her in there forever
tell me you will let her out to be free and happy

Shes just like cinderella
locked up and hid away
you have no idea
look throught the hole without the key
there is nothing left for her and me

The new game you wanna play
it wont work
you beat her to the ground
her mind has become her home
theres no escape

She walks alone
her mind has become her home
see what your missing
she runs away but shes not allowed
now its your turn to be locked up

Shes just like cinderella
locked up and hid away
you have no idea
look throught the hole without the key
there is nothing left for her and me

there is nothing left
there is nothing left

Daddy was a Good Man

Daddy was a good man
staying home for a few months
then leaving and disappearing
going out to make money
taking poor lil sis with him
Daddy was a good man
playing mama's feelings
using her stuff to his advantage
leaving her one deep
to raise four kids
Daddy was a good man
I never remember a birthday
with him there
holidays were rare enough
school recitals was a waste of breathe
Daddy was a good man
he made me who I am today
determined to be a good parent
and the best I could significant other
to be somebody
Daddy was a good man
he showed me all the wrong ways

Were warm and full from all the junk food we ate
In Snuggies we lay, fighting off our sleep
Thinkin of the mornin our gifts in a heap
Nodding off, Nodding off, Nodding off, Nodding off
hopin winter wont make us sneeze and cough

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

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...

Mother's Point of View

I cry every night but I don't know why.
I wait for my husband in solitude until I hear the doorbell ring.
It's my husband!
I guess we'll have a bite or two.
I open the door and it isn't him.
I start to cry but I don't know why.
I've done my fair share of crying but as my friend puts her arm around me, I start to
shiver and weep even more.
My daughter my daughter! I want my daughter back.
It's been too long.
She couldn't even see her little brother graduate from eighth grade.
My daughter. My poor daughter can't even see her kids.
My beautiful grandchildren may never see my mother's radiant face.
I can still hear her, " Honey, don't be afraid but I may die before too long."

If It Wasn't For Him Needing Me

If it wasn’t for him needing me
I think I would crumble and die
The thing that keeps me going strong
Is that pleading look in his eye
His mother left us years ago
For that castle in the sky
If it wasn’t for him needing me
I think I would crumble and die

If it wasn’t for him trusting me
To help him along his way
I think I would just pack my bags
And from this life I'd run away
But then at night when beside his bed
We both kneel down to pray
And he thanks the Lord that I’m his Dad
Then I know that I’ve got to stay

If it wasn’t for him loving me
With everything that he’s got
I think that how to give love back
Is something I would have forgot
When she died I wanted to die too
But I knew that I could not
Because I had to raise our little boy
And it’s what I want to do a lot

If it wasn’t for him needing me
I think I would crumble and die
The thing that keeps me going strong
Is that pleading look in his eye
His mother left us years ago
For that castle in the sky
If it wasn’t for him needing me
I think I would crumble and die

baby its killing me
its something on your mind you wont reveal to me
but lately its obvious you ain't really feeling me

we sleep under the same roof inside the same room in between the same 
but still distant lovers

and every day that passes increases the distance
and even when we touch I taste the lies in your kisses

use to be my princess said I was your Knight in shining armor
vowed to love cherish and honor

but lately all i get is anger from your mouth
I feel like Tamia " it's a stranger in my house "

you want me bad like Bobby sensitive like Ralph
it leaves a sickness in my stomach when I try to figure out

why my baby so hateful lately
its driving me crazy
Im praying daily

and I don't want to argue but she just wont shut up
day after day the same thing I'm getting fed up
I need relief from this migraine pains it wont let up
now "Im looking at the front door" like Large Professors     (MAIN SOURCE SONG)

Into the Flame

Summer passed with the smell of sweet perfume
And Autumn broke the soft the cocoon. 
To avoid the winter freeze, flying next to beautiful wings.
Why can't I have any of these things?
At least a Moth can pretend. 

Oh the cold it makes you shiver.
Abandon gold and all the silver.
All around and all in one place,
Connect the patches on my face.
Could it be rugged is my only friend. 

Fly, fly right into the flame.
Next season you'll be born again. 
So fly, fly right into the flame.
Don't you worry it's to early you'll be back again
And all the world you thought you left behind
Is already in front of your distant eyes. 

He said "You have heart kid remember that.
I never want to see you where I'm at.
This I hope you never know, believe because I told you so".
I wish that you could let it go; cry for me if you can.
Shedding a tear won't make you less a man. 

We drank as laughed of better days,
All while holding cups in fists if rage.
We know that life's this way, but oh why can't it change. 
In a lot of ways we took the blame, so far apart, yet the same.
So cry for me if you can.

Fly, fly right into the flame.
Next season you'll be born again. 
So fly, fly right into the flame.
Don't you worry it's to early you'll be back again
And all the world you thought you left behind
Is already in front of your distant eyes.

Summer passed with the smell of sweet perfume.
The northern winds came all to soon.
I don't recall what was the case, but their wings they couldn't lend.
At least a Moth can still pretend.

When the Wind Blew

When the wind blew, the birds slowly lifted their eyelids from sleep's seducing spell
Slowly, they met their new day with a feeling no one could explain or tell
They fluttered their wings to welcome the sun’s obnoxious display
Gazing at the people sleeping behind the misty window’s frame

When the wind blew, the birds prepared to take off
To fly to destiny’s tasteful D’lush
To sing melodious tunes
As they brighten a person’s days

When the wind blew, one by one they flew
As they passed by the many houses’ window’s
A chronological sequence it may be
But a story is what it shall be
Long time ago, there, in the beautiful land of empathy, lived a lady and a gentleman
Together they took care of each other; together they raised a child as her life began
Every year, a bird passes by, as it sees the young girl in a different phase
Yesterday she was a child, but today she is beating destiny’s race
But, the one thing that never changed was her smile to the lady that:
Took care of her for the past umpteenth years
Held her close to her heart whenever she was in fear
Stayed by her side when in need

Now, the child grew up to tell her tale
To the birds who visited during the day
“I grew up in the hands of a golden mother who took care of me every second
She watched me as I grew up while I watched her shine every day
She smiled when I made her laugh, while I treasured the smile in my mind
She hugged me whenever I was in need of warmth, while I preserved her warmth
I cherish everything you did for me, dearest mother
And I thank you for every good seed you planted in me”
One day, the birds passed by and left a small letter on the mother’s desk
In it were the words the daughter described
In it were the dear thank you notes she left for her mother as she departed away…
When the wind blew, many objects changed
But, a dear mother's love always remains the same…

He crossed the line

He loaded his family of 7 in a little silver van
knowing it could have all been prevented
No seatbelts on even the smallest of hand
his impatience with the semi ended
along with the tiniest of cries
now the rest of the family wonders why?
Chorus*He didnt wanna wait
            so he crossed the line
            he sealed his fate
            and destroyed every life
            never looked twice
            into the bigger picture
            he didnt wanna wait
            before he crossed the line*
He heard the door close
turned to see her cry
sighed a breath of regret
knowing he could never try
He just didnt love her
the way he knew he should
he belonged to another
and hurt her as he knew he would
Chorus*He didnt wanna wait
            so he crossed the line
            he sealed his fate
            and destroyed her life
            never looked twice
            into the bigger picture
            he didnt wanna wait
            before he crossed the line*
Bridge* Anyway you look at it
            someone always gets broken
            when the hand of greed
            rips into the wide open*

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

Christmas Through July

Christmas Through July

Christmas is such a grand time of the year!
People are happy joy shows everywhere. 
Gifts of love arrive from both far and near.
Scents of the season permeate the night air.

Remembering the Savior's love so grand.
Families hang lights, such a beautiful sight.
Decorations displayed across the land.
Many surprises are shared Christmas night.
January came but the tree remained.
Celebrating my child's birthday the same.
Just like Jesus, her happiness sustained.
Each year's tradition when her birthday came.

Year round loving was about to be taught.
Decorations of hearts and shiny red balls
Replaced the angels that Christmas had brought.
February feelings Christ's love did recall.

In March, the tree was adorned with shamrocks.
Paper-mâché nuggets sparkled in gold.
Children and laughter sang around the clock.
Smiles, like at Christmas, were great to behold.

April was spring pretty flowers were hung.
It took a lot of work, but was it still fun.
We at play felt pure joy, free and young.
One fun filled plan to teach love, begun.

May decorations, the best, I recall.
Mother's day cards, painted hands, paper plates.
A trip to the attic was fun for all.
While cherishing the loves childhood creates.

Christmas in June on a new marriage day
Downstairs jam-packed squeezed in each wedding guest.
Rained out at the park, they saw our display.
Christmas year round knew love at its best.

July 30th past, the flags were still hung.
Patriotism shown, honored with rare style.
Christmas in July with a new day sung.
We took down the tree cherishing each smile.

AUTHOR'S NOTE:  This lyric poem written in quatrain format is a true story that expresses my feelings about 
showing love year round…not just in December.

Whispers in the night - lyrics to Life story by Peter White

Whispers in the night, longing for your ears
To drown every fear
But the sorrow sleeps with me tonight. 

Whispers in the night, saying a bitter prayer,
Gone the summer cheer,
Only cold snow fills me deep inside. 

Remembering the fun-filled laughter, the dreams we shared;
Together we made it: built that home of kids and bricks. 

Remembering the hurtful wards, the chemo and meds, 
That instant you were mine, then reality killed me: us was history. 

Whispers in the night, saying our favorite prayers
Seeing you everywhere
Your smell still lives painfully in this house

Whispers in the night: "Oh why not a few more years?"
There is still so much to share!
Nobody to hug and care for life!

Remembering the fun-filled laughter, the dreams we shared
Together we made it: built that home of kids and bricks. 

Remembering the hurtful wards, the chemo and meds, 
That instant you were mine, then reality killed me: us was history.

Hold On To

The wind is strong
We have nothing to hold on
The sun is going down behind the hills
The violet sky and the tangerine glow on the local mill.
The wind blows away our dreams
I hold on to the seams.
I watch you as you stare
You want me to let go but I don’t dare.
My dreams are all, you’re nothing to me
Once I leave you ill be free.
Two more years,
There goes all my fears.
My dream will come true
That’s because I did it all WITHOUT you.

About, Me & You

You & me, so long we've been together,
Why can't you see?  Look inside..  I would never,
Ever want to be, a traitor to my lover,
You're the mother of my child, there could never be another.

I love to think about the day when we first met,
The day you walked into my life, how could I forget?
I let you deep into my heart, now my mind's set,
Because I love you, there's not a single regret.

It's never black and white, we are both shades of grey,
Now the world is full of colour and it's a fine day,
You extend my power, nothing gets into our way,
They say that love is blind, but this vision's here to stay.

Now this feeling's been refined, in the fires of time,
That have raged through our hearts, all along the line,
Your smile shines down on my face, so divine,
It's a crime to wastle a love, that is so sublime.

I can be the rock, that weathers the storm,
When the cold creeps in, I'll still be warm,
I'm no Millionaire, though I'm richer than you know,
Because I've got you Girl.

When we were broke, we still didn't choke,
The hardtimes fell, but we saw it as a joke!
We worked and played hard.. but we saw the smoke,
As the pressure awoke, to bring stress and to provoke.

Opposites attract, because we both come back,
It's a fact that I missed you, be we never ever lacked,
Any reason to react, you'll agree, we're both cracked,
You high-jacked my heart!  So start showing some tact!

Let us stay this way, today and tomorrow,
And any other day..  there are plenty more to follow,
We've no debt to pay, no reason to borrow,
We've got a light to shine, in the darkness of sorrow.

It has been so long Girl, we've gotta be strong,
And let time make right, what once went wrong,
I'll sing you any song..  in my heart you belong,
I just know we should carry on..

I was the rock, that weathered the storm,
The cold crept in, and I was still warm,
I'm no Millionaire, but I'm still richer than you know,
But now I haven't got you Girl..

My daughter the dancing bear.

Closed in her room listening to jerry’s band
Kelly traveled in mind we fought to understand
Wishing for the beach or dancing on a stage
The  bear beckoned her to run at a young age
Sixteen for real but older she would feel 
Growing up on the road is no big deal

Gone one night never looking back
To catch the dancing bus and vanish from site
Arrive at the show no ticket in hand
To get miracled in to the fantasy land
Getting high on music and feeling as one
back on the road again with the morning sun
The family grows as the shows go by
Little do they know their families that cry

Setting up camp in a field by night
Washing in a pond would be allright
peanut butter sandwich’s or the stew of the day
Whatever it took to find the way
Pack up the bus and join the caravan
 getting to the next show with pennies in hand
Only a true deadhead could survive this life
music and dancing bears shimmering at night

The dead family on tour from coast to coast
Never calling or writing those who love most
The ones left behind wonder what have I done
Is she alive or entered heavens kingdom
Someday she’ll  feel what we’ve been under 
 afraid calling home will start the thunder
As we sit at home and keep our lives normal
The deadheads like life a little less formal

One day a call of a baby bear dancing our way
He is Winter miles a true miracle of this day
 miles on miles during the winter season
Make his name unique for that reason
The music and freedom flow deep inside 
 A baby bears birth makes it hard to hide

Finally home but never sitting for long
Our traveler Kelly still lives by the song
Still living in the past and no bus to ride
She paints her body with scenes of pride
The fun and music they made a lifestyle
 Will effect us all for quite a while 
Know there’s others to continue the trek
While we try to get our lives back.

Someday Baby

Forever and
Ever it seems
You lie
Inside me.
Holding my
Heart. Curled
Into a tiny
Where you wait
To discover

Details | Lyric | |


We all suffer at the hands of another
wish we could see it's not our fault
but our mother's.
Praying to the wall
it'll make you feel  better
I won't stand for that bullshit
won't even pray for a brother.
For there's no such thing as a God 
but sorrow and hate
We,us humans, **** one another
to incriminate
our fears and losses.
we're our own devils in disguise
wearing upside down crosses.

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

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

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

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me

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
This night

Autumn in our city, City in our autumn

Our sun is weak
In efforts to fill up our sky today
It’s bleak, a softness of gray marches in
Blanketing our forecast
Mild autumn, cool breeze	
Peaceful, rolling low
Dead leaves sweeping around
New pavement cracking ground
An acoustic dance they tap
Out comes a rustling beat
Chasing one another gracefully
Down our city streets
Boisterous hoards of vehicles
Slither and hiss
Creeping their way through
Our city grid
Every so often
Muscular trumpet engines, become outdone

Let’s revert to a momentary handsome jungle scene
Watch and listen with care
As we relish an obtuse family of king elephant’s, trembling 
Warring a melancholy parade
Through mothers natural bad lands
Hammering earths ground 
With their massive bone crunching feet
Wake up; shake off your visionary nod
Back to the sounds, back to the sights
Back to our tender autumn city nights

A Bass filled honorable horn
Explodes and stretches
Out from an engine train
Vividly flexible slithering through our city
Bouncing off buildings, rolling down alleys
Sliding down rooftops, through slivered windows
Into our homes
As I sit back and observe
This miraculous painting
Of a finely stroked autumn day
I fall in love with the sights and sounds
Which bark and cruise upon her canvas spread
Graceful or not
Beautiful and ugly
Spills or mishaps
O thou spices of our lives
Beauty has been splashed
Upon this land, mighty grand
Even to a family of three or four
So small a note
To the makeup of her….masterpiece composer
Are we grateful? Are we selfish full of lingering lust?
A low storm hungry,
Rolling over grand mountains
Nearly black, pushing east
A shimmering assault of rain shall be released
Once her sky opens up
Like soldiers Para jumping
From a gang of war planes
I render it’s still a bit to warm
For a christening of our seasons first snow
I guess…… you never know
The wildness that can bleed out of our autumn city streets
As we plant future angelic seeds

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.

Details | Lyric | |


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,
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

I Had a Dream

                                      I Had a Dream

                         I had a dream. Oh I had a dream.
                         I sat in a chair in despair thinking
                       of the love and memory of my mother.
     In my dream I built a stairway to heaven with tears to hug her.
              Halfway with out a sound or word in the silent skies
                              an angel appeared upon me.
                        It was a precious and beautiful site.
Oh! I said could you for me ask God to cross a rose and lilac together
to create a bush with large clusters of white, purple, and pink flowers
                             and the fragrance of memory
   And give it long green stems so it can stand free and gracefully.
        Also ask him to it a name, a special name ‘ Kollock ‘
          and let it represent never forgotten love and memories.
                       In my dream God did this for me,
                     and gave it to my mother as a gift from me

Thank You

Long ago when I was young I remember sitting on your lap while you told me how I was going to grow up to do great things. That there was nothing I couldn't do if only I put my mind to it. You told me stories of powerful women and how I could be even more powerful than they one day. You made a little girl feel like Super Woman.

For that I thank you.

I think back to how you cared for me. How you watched over and protected me. You were always there. I never had a doubt in the world when it came to your love for me. You were not only my provider but you were my teacher. You lovingly taught me how to do all the things a good strong woman like yourself could do. We baked and did crafts. 
We painted fences and gathered eggs. The time spent with you was irreplaceable.

For that I thank you.

As I grew up you were still there watching over me only then it was from a distance. You loved me enough to let me go out that old red farmhouse door all alone. Giving  me a sense of confidence and much desired freedom. You watched from the window not knowing that I’d seen. You loved me enough to set your feelings aside and let me try to make it on my own.

For that I thank you.

As the years passed I went through so many changes. I became hostile and rebellious. I was both rude and demanding. How you ever put up with me I will never know. But you did. You were the one constant in my ever changing world. With everything seemingly falling to pieces all around me you were there to show me how easily the pieces fit back together with just a little patience and care. You never once lost your temper, just reminded me how much you loved me and that we would survive my teenage years together.

For that I thank you.

You shaped me into the person I would someday be. Taught me right from wrong. And how to stand up for what I believed in. Ever reminding me that there was nothing I could not do. With you I never once had to look back to see who might be watching waiting to judge my every move. Because you were always right behind me. Gently nudging me in the right direction.

For that I thank you.

When the time finally came for me to venture out on my own I did it with both fear and confidence. You again reminded me just how much I could accomplish if only I tried. During the bittersweet moments prior to my departure you reminded me just what I was made of and how strong I was. Even though I was shaking inside you knew I could do it and you kissed me good-bye.

For that I thank you.

Every Day and Every Night

At times things we cant explain, happen again and again,
Good or bad it just happens, it happens.
Every day and every night, I've gotta wonder why,
I cant see.. some of my family.
Sometimes we cant be, apart of lives that we used to be apart of.
It's harder on some, they try to stay strong...
Try not to show it cuz they been scared all along.
We go through it at different times,
It effects a lot of stages of our lives.
At times things we cant explain, happen again and again,
Good or bad it just happens, Oh it just happens.
Every day and every night, I've gotta wonder why,
I cant see.. some of my family.
Sometimes we cant be, apart of lives that we used to be apart of.

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle 
till the day you die.

You play in the sunshine
and dance with the moon,
you dress your hair up
with the flowers of June.

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle,
my love, don't cry.

You dress up in fashion,
wear nothing at all,
just be sure that 
you hear when I call.

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle 
till the day you die.

Dedication to unconditional love and soul 

I AM the ONE who loves thee
The ONE who cared enough to die for thee

I AM HE who redeemed thee
The ONE who rose from the dead to comfort thee

I AM the ONE who will always be with thee
The ONE who will never forsake thee

I AM HE who is integrity
The ONE who imparts truth in thee

I AM HE who was sent to save thee
The ONE who bore all your infirmities

I AM HE who will come back for thee
Just be a soul who truly loves ME

Ashley Had a Small Goat
Oh, Ashley had a Small goat,
Small goat, Small goat,
Ashley had a Small goat,
And he had a coat of white

He followed her to school one day,
School one day, school one day,
He followed her to school one day,
And drank a some water.

 Oh, once he ate a spinach can, 
Spinach can, spinach can, 
once he ate a spinach can, 
Also a line of clothes.

The clothes can do no harm inside, 
Harm inside, harm inside, 
the clothes can do no harm inside, 
But oh! The spinach can!

 The can was filled with achemical,
chemical , chemical chemical,
The can was filled with a chemical,
Which the goat  thought was food

He rubbed against poor Ashley's chin,
Ashley's chin, Ashley's chin,
He rubbed against poor Ashley's chin,
His deep distress to ease.

There was a flash of girl and goat,
Girl and goat, girl and goat
There was a flash of girl and goat
And they were seen no more..

Ashley's soul to Heaven went,
Heaven went, Heaven went,
Ashley's soul to Heaven went,
And Mr. Goat went there too.

This Box

Oh what sorrow I feel for the ones that get left behind,
All our lives we seek the truth,
We never seem to find the reason for the loss of kindness,
Never understanding that they have so much hate for us,
All the holidays we celebrate alone,
But still we must go on,
The feeling as if we were placed in a forgotten box upon a shelf of shamefulness,
Why did they do this to us,
What have we done to be made to endure the shame they feel for us,  
We hope that one day they will remember us, 
But only to be disappointed from one day to the next,
Oh the pain we feel as we scream in the darkness of our box,
Our voices seeming to fade away,
We dream of what could have been,
But only to awake in the darkness of our box,
Now that the season of our lives is coming to a close,
We can’t help but to wonder did they truly forget us,
Will we be remembered or is this box our life long tomb,
Do they feel no shame for what they have done,
Not knowing us for who we are,
The joy we could have brought, 
The happiness they could have felt,
The family we could have been,
They truly will never know,
But again we must go on,
It’s been decades now,
But we still miss them,
Remembering all the while,  
This box is our home.

Cherokee Winds (song lyrics)

Cherokee spirts riding in the clouds
Cherokee winds crying out loud                                    ( Chorus )

The Cherokee spirits whispering from far away,
Calling, Calling, Calling through the winds,
Oh the longing message it sends.
Whispering ancestors bacon all family when life ends.

Cherokee spirts free, longin again to roam
Among the lands they once called home                        ( Chorus )

Winds sing banchee songs bellow in the night,
Of spirits calling of their long ago fright,
All souls now weakening with out fear, all who hear
lonely hearts those left behind, Rains of loved ones sheading tears.

Cherokee spirits roaming through the clouds
Looking for lost family among the crowds                     ( Chorus )

So if you hear at the end of your days,
becoming banchee winds calling your name
Though you never knew your ancestors,
yet unknowlingly always obeying Cherokee way

Cherokee spirits riding on the clouds
Calling through the winds riding over the crowds.          (Chorus )

Then you may be....indian Cherokee family  
Once so free that roamed this land endlessly
Cherokee spirits roaming still ever so free
Calling one last time all Cherokee family

My Baby Blue Eyed Angel

Close your eyes my baby blue eyed angel
Close your eyes my baby blue eyed girl
Close your eyes and take a little nap
When you awake my little blue eyed angel
I'll be right here by your side my love

Imagine a lovely garden, tea for two, and this story . . .
So I guess you were in the Delafield Park that morning-
Police report says around 12 a-something
Yeah, I’m sorry, I wish you woulda called, texted, anything.
I woulda been there-oh wait I was there-always have been there.
Which is why people are sayin’ you didn’t hit me up-
You went to the wrong people, those who didn’t care.
-You must-a been so damn scared
I’m glad you’re off the streets, not in a cell, or in pain-
Maybe we just insane, baby
That makes two of us, trust me, I get those thoughts too-
Not strong enough to make me actually carry it through-
Jus’ don’t wanna leave my family and those I love, people like you.
But hey, I know God has a plan, and I understand the stuff you had to handle
Now I got a guardian angel, and I have your picture in my room
Next to the cardboard painting of
“I’ll Be In The Sky…I’ll Be There…Oh, Alright…”
So weird, thinkin’ I lost my best friend, my brother
Now we can always see each other, how ‘bout that?
Please watch over your family and everyone you love, and those you don’t.
Watch over ‘Milla too.  I never got to meet her, but I bet she loved you.
Hey, I love you too, you know that, of course, but ya know…just wanted to letchya 
And little Emma too-man, she’s a special girl, she really loves her brother and she’ll do 
great in this world.
Man, remember that one time, two times, three times, at the movies?
Aha-I know you do.  
All the crazy things we did and been through-
Well I’m-a wrap this up, I took these lyrics from my rap
And I’m turning ‘em into a poem for English so I can get a grade
-Do well, and go to college, I’ma live for you
I love you, Fella<3

Why is “someday” such a sad word?
When one like “never” is so much worse?
Why....why “someday”?

Why is “someday” such a sad, sad word?
Perhaps the saddest one I’ve ever heard...
Why “someday”?

has somebody
Except me, it seems
but that's not why I want to leave

So out of it
feel “out of it”
Never was in
can't find the way 

"Life’s one big bluff
Keep a straight face
Don’t let ‘em see your cards."

Yeah, life’s one big God-forsaken bluff
and I’m about to jump off

Someday, I thought you’d find me
Someday, I thought you’d love me
But someday ....
someday NEVER CAME

“Someday,” they say, “You’ll find somebody.”
“Someday, you will be happy.”
“Someday, life will mean something.”
But someday I'll be SICK of waiting

Someday, you’ll see why it can’t be
Someday we’ll ALL be sorry
One day
sweet day
I’ll find my way 
out of this body.

I'm the Knife

I said, “Take my hand, girl, let’s go for a ride.
You gotta choose soon, you gotta pick a side.
Pick me, the good, or pick them, the bad."
She said, "Babe, I pick you." That made me pretty glad
We left Chicago, we chose route 66
Headed to Santa Fe to get our fix
Took a hit before we left, one hit for the road
Then we stopped in St. Louis to lighten the load

Takin' this ride was the worst decision
Cut your family in two, like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
Your family won't be happy with your life

Drained a bottle of Bourbon before we started our day
"Drivin' crazy is the best." We always say
The highway was our freedom, our only way out
Never thought this road would end, we didn't have a doubt
Stopped in Oklahoma City, where the fields are endless
We only had each other, it seemed we were friendless
Drained another bottle when we checked in for the night
Got crazy, made some love, and had a fight

Takin' this ride was the worst decision
Cut your family in two, like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
Your family won't be happy with your life
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
I don't know why you put me through this strife

Hit the road in the mornin', too early it felt
Checked on my arm and saw I had a welt
Well, my baby hits hard when the whiskey runs wild
Only time I love her is when her temper is mild
Stopped at Amarillo, ‘cause our car overheated
My baby said to me, “I don’t like the way I’m treated!
When you tell me you love me you're never serious!"
I said, "Baby, I love you, you're just delirious."

Takin’ this ride was the worst decision
Cut your family in two, like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I’m the knife
Your family won’t be happy with your life
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
When we get to Santa Fe you'll be my wife

Saw a sign, "Welcome to Santa Fe!",  filled us with joy 
Took a look at my girl, she sighed and played it coy
Took my eyes off the road just for a second
Then that light came, well it did beckon
Smashed my foot on the brakes, plowed into a truck
"Well," I said to my baby, "That's just our luck.
But don't worry we made it to Santa Fe!"
Too bad my baby's soul had flown away

Takin’ this ride was the worst decision
Cut your life short like an incision
The knife was me, babe, I’m the knife
Your family won’t be happy what I did to your life
The knife was me, babe, I'm the knife
I regret it all, what I did to your life

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

One man, One Woman

“One man, one woman”
My father will sternly warn me
And severally, oh! Severally
Will he repeat in my hearings
Loudlier than ever saying
“Son will you take on too many woes”?

“Oh! My father” of what do you speak again
My tender heart skipping a hurdle
A firm handshake erupting
Between my pounding heart 
And my twinging left eyeball

Cry out then I unto him
“Oh! My father it is, but very early at dawn
And with his eyes wide open
My father beholds the fruit of his loins
Who erstwhile had previously
Been wrapped in swaddling clothes,
A tiny little young creature

My father takes in a deep smiling breath
And another deep breath quick to follow
And calmly says
“Son, my son -do not take on more than you can chew!
Listen boy, listen to me!

Beautiful many a women come,
Poison and woes their abundance bring
But of one man, one woman!
What potent panacea more would you request
One man, one woman boy!
One man, one woman Son.

These Salty Waves Pt 1

What am I supposed to think? What am I supposed to say? All these lies you bottled up come sweeping, crashing with the tides. My footing's gone, the ocean real, but how am I supposed to feel? And here I am, a drowning mess, a loveless lie, I do protest. And here I am a drowning mess. So all those things you said to me? Where they just lies out of pity? So all those things you said to me? Or am I lost in salty waves? Yes I know my future's grave. Or am I lost in salty waves?And now the panic in my head, when I should be tucked up in your bed, reels and reels right here instead.I'm going down, a sinking ship, funny what name drips off my lips. It is not God, or Angles plenty, or even that I'm just damn ready To let go of the hell and the lies. I'm wishing for your gentle eyes. Or at least the way they always seemed, but perhaps that's just this salty dream. I have no clue what I'm to do! A drowning hopeless mess, for you-- think it's cute, and oh so funny, but here's the bitter truth now honey. I'm going down. There is no help. I can't be saved by God himself. I put my life, my whole world of trust, and you've thrown it away for lust. Well what the hell's a girl to do? I'm just so entranced by you!

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!

Laurens song

There is a light inside of you
blue eyes that light up a room
it was your heart that saw me thru
love of a child that i mother to

A crooked smile and a blankie
big blue eyes smiling back at me
life wasnt given to you by me
but my baby is all that I see

There was a sign daddy taught you
that let you know everything is alright
your hand in mine and you always knew
that he would love you til the end of time

but the ghost in the doorway
makes no way to get passed
my fears echo the hallway
 and your voice is heard last

A crooked smile and a blankie
big blue eyes smiling back at me
life wasnt given to you by me
but my baby is all that I see

Tristan the butcher boy

You'll smack your lips, at his silver side
Our beefy lad will cure your ham
His tender loins, are worth your coins
And if you ask, he'll stuff your lamb
I tell no fibs, you'll love his ribs
It ain't no joke, his crackly pork
Worth every pound, his piece of round
No crumbly biscuit, beats his brisket
Like chocolate drops, his porky chops
You cannot beat our Tristans meat
His chunky thighs, don't criticise
His seasoned beef, won't crack your teef (teeth)

I tell no fibs, you'll love his ribs
It ain't no joke, his crackly pork
Worth every pound, his piece of round
No crumbly biscuit, beats his brisket 
A butcher always, in the making
But the creme de le creme, of his meaty treats
His able hands, will cure your bacon
He's the nicest guy, you could ever meet

I want to make sure I’m not falling on my face...
And I`m willing to go the distance
And I want to bring back good memories...
I want to make sure
You`re safe and you`re in a safe place

But GIVE ME some space
Sometimes, I wake up...feeling so distressed
But GIVE ME your sweet grace
And we'll beat the race...and this pain we share will not be addressed

I don't want to be unsure - am I the one losing the race?
And I'm chilling in this heavenly place
And I need to trade you my apologies…
I don’t want to waste your time
You’re absolutely safe…as long as you keep pace

Small Town Big People

I look in the mirror and see the years gone
I can look beyond the glass out the window
To the yards of my childhood
I can smell the flowers and feel the grass ‘neath my feet. 
I can hear the music blasting on the radio
Mama callin’ me for supper.  

I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

The town is small and so are the events
You’re everyone’s business 
You can get a break and can’t get away
You don’t even have a say
You go to and from and people protest
And those same people will still put you to the test

I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

I made it to the big town K.C, 
Got myself a husband and a son and a place to live
Settled in and made a life, got a career
I swear I’ll never return to my best friend
Comfortable where I stand, 
Happy where I am 

I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

Well times are hard,
And people are ruthless in this cut throat time
Jobs are scarce and bills run high
You never know what you’ll hear at night
The people are small in this big town
Yeah people are small in this big town

I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town. 

I guess the town is small
Just good ol’ boys and girls havin’ fun
Small place, small town, small world
People may talk and people may watch
But the biggest thing in that small town
Are the people after all. 

I yearn to go back to that danged town
I fought to get away and never look back,
I never wanted to live there again. 
I guess there’s a piece of me
There in that little town.

God's Still Looking Out For 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.

A time when you could eat the sun

The trees are made of feathers and sticks
The sun is made of golden cheese
The moon was made of whipped cream
A place where the water was made out of blue Kool- Aid
The grass was made of gummy green strings
There was no houses and no place to hide
A place where a boy ate the sun
A place where the Moon swalloed up the world
A tragedy that melted and turned to liquid
No one could swim in the sea
No one could tan underneath the branches
A world where time stood still and the hours were long
A place where humans never existed

"Please Try to Go Beyond Earth Hour"
Treat earth like something you imagined when you were a kid a place where these things happened and you could be safe. Pick up your trash and clean up your yard! after all this is your world too :)!

How could you

She sits there wondering
If you'll ever see
She's tired of waiting
How could you let this be?

Locked in the system
a victim of reality
Lost to the unknown world
She sits there
Trapped in her fantasy

She stares out the window
Missing your heartbeat
Longing for your arms
But you won't ever see
You've left her to live here
die here
Drowning in a wordless sea

So many people
around her
but she can't ever tell
She's walking alone now
just a hollow shell

They tell her to listen
Move on
With her twisted life
She can't find a reason
a value
nothing but the blade of a knife

It's not the answer
she knows this
but the pain is just too much
You left her to bleed here
lie here
when she only craved your touch

Up in the air she raises
the blade oh so high
So many people
she's leaving
without a single goodbye

Plastic as a doll's toy
her smile was
But you couldn't see
That all she ever wanted
just you
but you had to leave

She sits there wondering
If you'll ever see
She grew tired of waiting
of crying
How could you let this be?

If I had seven days,
I'd feed the hungry...
give milk formulas
to the needy mothers
of the suckling babies
who can't be breast-fed;
what a big smile I'd put
on every infant's face!
And from within, I'd certainly
feel a joy never experienced before!

I wouldn't stop there,
I'd continue searching for them...
for those children who ask for bread,
and a bottle of spring water...
if I were the Pope, I'd sell all the gold
in Vatican City and make them full,
hoping that others will follow his example!
Why do they have to die uselessly;
has society turned away 
from human compassion? 

If I had seven days
to do as I please, I would be
an ambassador for peace,
stop the violence which causes wars
by asking nations to come together and negotiate...
I would be much delighted to see them shake hands!
Some will listen, some will not
and despite their negative reaction,
I will try to convince them with an imposing voice
that they will be sorry for the destruction which will come!

Slow To Heal

Visible defect Variation Soothing effect As my fingertips Run over this formation Through hills and dips Passing pain Now a conversation piece These wash away with the rain These One day will Cease Internal rips And tears Shadowed Stitched with care Only to be shredded Again Slow to heal If only it was let alone And you wouldn't hammer In the sin Full of chagrin Confidence blown I'd rather Show you my scars My skin shattered Then you discover my wounds Ruined Can't keep the seal So slow to heal

A Taste of Home

Verse 1
I dialed that familiar number,
Cuz’ my heart was breaking in two
And aching for the comfort, 
that in her voice I knew I’d find
And the invitation for a taste of home
To a kitchen table where hearts are healed
And problems were solved every time 

She’d say come on home,
You need a taste of home
And there’s no better cure,
Then my heart filled apple pie
And Grams in the kitchen
For your favorite dish 
And, it’s the best remedy,
you’ll ever find

Verse 2
I jumped in my car, started to drive
Thinking about how love can come and go
Then the magical memories, 
of the love, of a family 
Brought sweet visions in my mind
I laughed out  loud, about the last big cake fight
An on going war with a cousin of mine

Verse 3
I pulled into the driveway
Sat in wonder and just stared
The whole darn family, they were all standing there
An impromptu BBQ, to heal my heart
Was on the menu for tonight
I‘m so happy I came home, 
to heal this broken heart of mine

She’d always say come on home,
You need a taste of home
And there’s no better cure,
Then my heart filled apple pie
And Grams in the kitchen
For your favorite dish 
And, it’s the best remedy,
you’ll ever find

And later in the evening,
As Uncle Jack manned the BBQ
He put his arm around me saying,
I was once there in your shoes
Isn’t it funny how the love of a family
Can almost heal a broken heart
But the final ingredient to make it whole again
Is the apple pie and love,
from your Mama’s heart

She’d always say come on home,
You need a taste of home
And there’s no better cure,
Then my heart filled apple pie
And Grams in the kitchen
For your favorite dish 
And, it’s the best remedy,
you’ll ever find

Just come on home

All Because of You

No matter how far I roam
I'll always have a place to call home
Somewhere to go when life gets rough
A foundation to stand on when things get tough

Because of you I am who I am today
All of my life you have shown me the way
And now its time that I put to use
All of the things you taught me how to do
And I am here today
And its all because of you

You stood behind me when I was right
You protected me with all of you might
You corrected me when I was wrong
And because of you I can be strong

Because of you I am who I am today
All of my life you have shown me the way
And now its time that I put to use
All of the things you taught me how to do
And I am here today
And its all because of you

No matter where I go
This I want you to know
That if it weren't for you
I wouldn't know what to do

Because of you I am who I am today
All of my life you have shown me the way
And now its time that I put to use
All of the things you taught me how to do
And I am here today
And its all because of you

All because of you
All because of you

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 
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 
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

Young Cowboy On The Battlefield
Remembered His Mama’s Words
‘Just Make It Home, Son …’
Her Voice Echoed, As He Heard …

Missiles, Right and Left
Bomb-Blasts and Confusion
… and Silent Tears, He’s Wept

… Every Day, A Minefield
Every Night, A Raid
Every Moment, A Terror
Trying to Make Him Afraid …

Any Second, A Horror
Of A Buddy, Laid To Rest
Every New Tomorrow
Wondering, What’s Next ?

The Cowboy On The Battlefield
Vigilant and Brave
Stood Ramrod Tall and Terse …
Looking At Her Grave …

‘Just Make It Home, Son … ‘
… Echoed Thru His Brain
‘Just Make It Home, Son …’
… Echoed Thru The Rain

And Just Before She Was Laid To Rest
She Said, ‘Just Make It Home, Son …’
And With Those Last Words, She Blessed,
And Said, ‘I’ll Be Waiting, When You Come …’

                    * * * *

My Daughter

What exactly have I done so wrong?
I’ve listened to her cries and her pleas
I tried to understand all of her needs, hopes 
and dreams
Yet as time goes on she continues hating me
Not trusting in my love
Not believing in our friendship
How can I remind her so she’ll remember?

Why has she left me all alone?
I’ve always talked and cried with her
I’ve laughed and joked around
I’ve shared my secrets with her and all of
my feelings
But as she get older she wants to leave, run
away so to speak
Never turning back, not even a blink
Will I ever see her again?

Where has my daughter gone?
She’s hiding behind the teenage smoke 
Rather be lonely then come back to me
I have to be the parent which she doesn’t 
Sorry if this she can’t see
I can’t seem to change her mind
How can I tell her I love her, and have her 

I there any chance to help our relationship to 
I’ve given her my heart and my soul
But she don’t seem to care anymore
The closeness we once had seems to have died, 
in a couple of weeks’ time
It’s a possibility she may one day forgive
Allowing are anger, pride and hurt  to go 
away, not holding a grudge for things that 
are not my fault
Will she ever accept my apologies?

when i was young

when i was young at five or six,
the smallest of my parent's kid's.
i was lost as pawn in game.
pulled and pushed and used for gain.

they split us up two boys,two girl's.
gave each of us our separate world's.
sent away many mile's apart.
broken in spirit,mind and heart.

i remember having many a home.
all which seemed dark,damp and cold.
i remember never saying a word.
children should be seen not heard.

i remember the social's work.
and the over intrusive question's incurred.
i remember the loneliest of child's.
and probably still can if i face my denial's.

when i was young at nine or ten.
i started loosing myself then.
replaced by uncertain night's and day's.
wondering who next will go away.

they didn't just take my thirst for life.
but made me retreat to what's inside.
my fallen life in a judge's hand's.
an entire family tried upon the stand.

i lost one parent for ever then.
when i was young at nine or ten.

Stranded on an island of thieves 
Rising up from the ashes of the 
burning trees

The constant smell of burning flesh
We laid down to rest

The crisp feel of the leaves
Bark burning at a raging speed
But our eyes are to blind to see

What I feel is no less 
That would be your guess

Little Girl

Dancing, laughing, without a care,
So naive to the world,
Dreams of such whimsical fantasies,
Such an innocent little girl

Come here child,
I will comfort you when the world seems to much to bare,
No need too worry or fret,
Remember I will always be there

Growing, Learning, as children do,
You will soon learn about lifes trials,
For soon happiness will fade,
leaving you to forget how to genuinely smile...

Dreams will be destroyed,
But together we can always build more,
My child, My daughter, Little Girl,
Your courage will grow stronger than ever before

Thirteen Forevers

I thought forever was not enough time
We weren't supposed to see the end of the line
It just can't be over when a years gone by, just thirteen times

Much damage was done, yes this is true
you had me arrested and I did stuff to you
We can leave that behind now love will carry us through

They all bet against us but what will we say
We won't have a good answer if we just quit today
When our children come ask us why we threw love away

We clearly could part now to no ones surprise
Walk away from each other with no long goodbyes
Or could go all in and risk roll the dice
Betting we're better together as forever glides by thirteen times

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

You Went Away

Another summer here alone
why you left me so cold chilled to the bone
it sinks in when i see you in stone

I walk around in a daze
forgetting the look on your face
nothing fills my heart but empty space
i showed you my darkest place

They tell me that i will be okay
but not today
I cry from the last words i heard you say

Living alone in this place
i think of you so i can escape
A place where i used to see you
Happy and breathing

but not anymore...

A place where you died in pain
It was a shame 
that you couldnt be saved

This day i will remember
because its the day that you went away

Turn Back Around

~Turn Back Around~

Sad eyes looking up at us
How can we ignore them?
Walking away like they don’t mean a thing
Like the ones who already hurt them
They are crying out for someone to notice them
Love them
Take care of them
Lonely children of the world 
Being walked away from
Isn’t it about time we 

~Turn Back Around~

The child who had to runaway just to get away
From the beatings
The nightly visits from a stranger in their bed
The drunken rages 
The Terror they were raised in
A parent who molests them
Innocence taken
Yet we don’t even hear them
As they cry out for help
It is time to 
~Turn Back Around~

Give them a chance
Listen to what they have to say
A home to call their own
Safe from the abuse
Safe from the terror
A home filled with love
A place to grow
In comfort rather than fear
Off of the streets
Away from the danger
That is what they are wanting
All we have to do is

~Turn Back Around~

Quit ignoring those 
Sad eyes looking up at us
Do what is right and 

~Turn Back Around~

Little one

She grows so fast 
Its so hard to see you now
My  time did not last
Your trying to hard and to loud

Slow you role
Dont grow up to fast 
where you helment
or Ill kick you ass

Go slow and see the world
Sometime be alone just be a girl

Its ok to be one
you in the sun
the rays of life in you hair
thanking god that your there

We all need time to grow
Fuk the world you must show
your heart is better than most
dont waste your time on goust

You have all the time in the world

Where your helment
Where your helment

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

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.”

The internet told me i have aids
The media told me that im a murderer
The magezines tell me i can become fake
The ads tell me i can give into things
The book told me i can believe in dumb things
The tv commercial said i can save money on car insurance
The store sign said i can buy a life
The hospital told me i can end a life
The iran people said i can bomb anything
The cigarette ad said i got cancer
The weed ad said i got healthier
My journal said i can be many things 
but im better off as being myself!!

We Walk Amongst The Faithful

We walk amongst the faithful. Unknown to human eyes. So normal and so human, They can't see through our disguise. The tears of angels made us As they flew down from the sky. They didn't want to do it, So all they did was cry. We're stuck amongst the ruin. The horror and despair. We've seen a bit too closely To the heart of Evil's lair. We walk amongst the faithful. Unknown to human eyes. So normal and so human, They can't see through our disguise. We're scarred up on the inside, But outside we're just fine. We hide the truth so well They can't see into our lies. Our daddies were all drinkers. And when they would get mad, They'd take it out us poor souls, And boy were we so glad When Daddy drank himself to sleep, And we could go and hide. Carve another scar into our heart Which was hidden deep inside. We walk amongst the faithful Unknown to human eyes So normal and so human They can't see through our disguise. Our mommies all liked men Perhaps a bit too much They sampled fair and far And didn't mind the touch. When Mommy fell asleep, Her boyfriends would come down And they would scare us half to death And they'd start to mess around. And after they were done Ravaging our broken souls We'd take our chance to run And hide from things we'd never know. We walk amongst the faithful Unknown to human eyes So normal and so human They can't see through our disguise. Our families are all broken We have no place to hide No place to let our tears out Let out what hurts inside. And now we sit here all alone In this dark corner as all hope Evades our longing hands We've lost our way to cope. And now we hide our feelings And what they've done to every “me”. We hold our chins up high. We do not let them see. We walk amongst the faithful Unknown to human eyes So normal and so humans Can't see through our disguise We pretend it doesn't happen We can't let anyone know Our traitor of a heart Is something we can't show. Would anyone even understand What we hold inside our hearts? Or would we be a freak show A different world apart? Maybe one day we will find one Every single one of us Someone who will understand Someone we can trust.

My rage builds up inside
This is the face that cried
The body that died

The world that has no more space
This is the hand that bruised your face
The blood I taste

The depression deep inside my soul
These are the hands that are so cold
The hate that can't unfold

The life placed upon Thee'
These are the eyes that cannot see
The things that should not be

The shame that was placed
This is the mistake that cannot be erased
The time we have left to chase

The words that were spoken too clear
These are the ears that cannot hear
The friend who is no longer near

Addicted-for Matt

You let this thing take a hold of you,  control of you
Dictating your actions like a puppet without strings
Taking you down the road of the weak
Unable to believe what yourself,speaks
Destroying your body from the inside out
Subconsciously making you scream, "Let me Out"!
Your a shining star on the verge of a disaster
Stop it before it gets what its after
Admitting the lies to the ones you love
The first step in becoming what you need to become
Seeking out the help you need to save your soul
is the bravest thing in this world,that i know
Your a shining star that needs to shine
Dont let it burn out
Stop it,Scream,
"Let me out!, Let me out!

To be a measure of a man
You gotta take a stand
Gotta take control
Gotta find the strength, on your own
Be that shining star
that i know you are
Gotta fight the fight
You gotta  right to your life
Keep fighting 
Fighting for your life............

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.

Loving Mother Of Mine

Smiles, laughter, and tears we've shared

Both of us never knowing where the road may lead us

As we go along our way apart, yet together we go

Photos say we are the same yet different

Many frightening moments we have overcome

Moments that strengthened our bond

Some moments that challenged us as well

But no matter where life takes us

One thing always remains

The bond we share, loving mother of mine

Marie III--Is the Coffin Too Deep

So frigid was her immaculate body Her last second in screams is all I can see Love's revenge was my guilt With you I'd rather let you die with Bound hands Without you, Marie, like the psychopath's dream Death is all that I can see; All that could redeem Did anyone ask Did anyone recall The sweet taste of the poison The swift slash of the knife he penetration of the lead The pain of her decaying heart I can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep? Was it so hard to solve Was it so hard to see That I strangled her so easily My nails piercing her comely skin Blood dripping like the pomegranate I crushed with the shovel I shattered her shins The knife to slight her wrists Didn't you see I did it all The only witness Couldn't say Is the coffin too deep? The pain of her decaying hear tI can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep? Marie I cant stay Earth is to cruel when your coffin is to deep Forever in death and in death alone The pain of her decaying heart I can hear it's bellowing cries But why can't you, Marie, Hear my paranoid eulogies Is the coffin too deep?

She hates me because I drink too much
My eccentric idiosyncrasies that leads me a stray
My wild ways
That makes the onlooker a prey
I am only a victim of my own destiny
She hates me because I am not the man
That she expects
A type of man the world will reject
A man who falls in the gutter
Who will respect
But in my mind
I know why 
I am an alcoholic
Problems I encounter each day make me diabolic
A good man between the Devil and the deep sea
I will damn the consequences because what will be 
Will be
And though we share the same lakes and common rivers
The approach to life is different
True freedom comes only  with death
When you breathe no more
And worry about what will happen yet
Nobody is rich
Nobody is poor
My life is hazardous
Like a marine’s duty tour
Nobody is a prince
Because we all rise from the floor 
Listen to the words that I speak
If you seek humility 
You will rise to the peak 
For in a man’s construction
Lies a divine design
The fulfillment of life
Which no one can define?

it feels good to know 
I have found someone 
who cares as much 
as I love the sky 
as I love the rain 
as I love spring 
or a summer day 
it feels good to know 
I can look in your eyes 
and not be denied 
the love I feel inside 
is more precious than 
the first blooming flower
the first clap of thunder 
the first ray of sun 
after a shower 
it feels good to know 
where ever we go 
you are always with me 
by my side
and knowing you love me 
makes me fly
higher than the biggest plane 
further than geese on autumn days 
for I am undoubtably yours

Summoning the Light

The mortal restrain
the blood tripping from my eyes
the blue skin 
not yet fully grown fetus

Before her stands a wraith of me
her not knowing whats going on
i talk but she cant hear me
she turns away moving into the light

im standing in the darkness 
she turns and holds out her hand
the time when darkness met the light
the power i felt light coming upon me

I turn away and let go of her hand
i cant move away from the darkness
it swallows me whole
she disapears before my eyes

The light is gone and im all alone 
i cry blood not tears
im naked wrapped in one black cloth
it covers my stomach

i take the clothing off
my stomach falls  open
the fetus blue and bloody 
falling out laying on the ground
i walk away an image appears before me

it of a accident a car laying on the ground below a hill
i see myself reaching for her hand but they take her away
they leave me here dead with my fetus 

I know now that i cant be saved
i close my eyes and return to the dark
i see her above me in a white gown 
she shines like the sun and has wings that sparkle
like glitter i daze off never to wake again.

Feel Me

I do it for the boys, the girls, men, the women,
plus Allah's unborn children look how I'm living
it's similar to, your situation no money making,
just chips and egg crates in front the Playstation.
Cable's late again my real friends know my struggle,
a rough 9 to 5 plus supplying studio time is my hussle.
It's just my father, Jibri, and I shacked in a shack
shackled to a broken home with no
welcome mat get back.
Everysince my mother left the building,
the feeling ain't the same pain is building
rain is killing the window pain.
Winters are harsh man, but I can take it though
as long as I'm wrapped up in these blankets
I'm a make it man.

I do it for the emcees, the djs, the b-boys, the b-girls,
hip hop is a growing culture plus it's a free world.
Free to manifest expressions,
free to rep your section focused over nice composures
flowing until the night is over.
Don't be like me just be like the music you like
use right rhyme and reason choose nice lines and preach them.
Watch the ones leeching watch who you be with frequent
cause you can end up with your dreams slowly sinking.
Only you can make it in this, it's a business,
forget the fame listen use your senses don't be senseless.
Be patient and grind hard if waiting to shine start
slanging tapes on my block & your block it don't stop.
Hit up every spot around,
it's a milion of us trying to get a milion bucks and
chill in a vila feeling the cool breeze.
I'm am who me.
the same easy dude speaking jeweles
do you I'm a do me.

I started off young with a pen and a pad lyrics I had
before that I scribbled on scraps forget about class.
Entered school thinking of rap,
grades sinking in math
twas either skip, go home, or sit in the back.
During lunch I read what I wrote
they said it was dope, within battles
no one put Bomb Threat on the ropes.
Six years later I.....left to go solo felt I was hopeless
in a group that wasn't hungry only one supplying money me.
Then the south was united, two years later divided
but Mama Glo, had the best ideas,
but I, down no man no way no how
cause if you make it in this game from the heart I'm proud.
FLA I will make this official rake up a pencil
for Jenah's sake I'm a make it
and mention you on an instrumental.
That's a promise I'm honest, show me love back
hold me down
southside is us you gotta love that.

A Family?

Five years ago, the pain began
What prompted it, I don’t understand.
Resentment and jealously, played a big part
Tearing and breaking, many a heart.

Hurt and confused, the family parted
Not really knowing, why it started.
Caught in the middle, needing some care
Turning to those, whose love they’d share.

No matter how hard, I try to get along
Everything I do, ends up so wrong.
Never being able, to ever satisfy
I’m tired of trying, and living a lie.

Maybe someday, together we’ll all be
It would be great, being a family.
For now we must take, things day by day
Hoping hearts will mend, along the way.

Family is Overrated!

Headin’ back home
I don’t know what to think
I want to roam but
"I disagree," says my shrink

What does he know anyway?
And why does he want me to stay?
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

Walkin’ through the door
I see my dad
My bags hit the floor and
My dad looks rather mad

Why does he think I’m so bad?
And whys he always mad?
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

I see my mom too
What does she think
She says, "Your rents due!" and
She leaves with a wink

Why should I have to pay rent?
When all my moneys spent?
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

I see my brother
Sittin' on his bed
I ask him, "What’s with mother?" But
He never heard what I said

Never liked him anyway
I feel like I’ve been betrayed
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

We gather ’round the table
For some dinner
"So are you able to
pick anyone but a sinner?"

My mom never liked my girlfriend
Thought she’d pass like a trend
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

Packed my things up and
Headed for the door
"I’m leavin' for a distant land!" Then
My mom’s jaw hit the floor

Never liked my family anyway!
Wanted to leave every day!
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

The Dance

Swaying. I'm dreaming. Sinking. I'm dying. Freefalling. Angels sing a beautiful melody. Hallelujia, oh hallelujia. The light shines on me, enchanting. It's holy, it's holy. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. My heart is pounding deep within my chest. Dancing with in my eyes ceases to exist. I am not alone. Blinded no longer is the truth hidden inside. And we're swaying. The angels singing. Hallelujia, oh hallelujia. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. On golden streets we dance to the harp, he's holding me close. Silver is the moon, blue are the stars. I fall awestruck to my knees, swimming through splashing amber seas of innocence. The steps of the dance, guided by his gentle hand. I am at rest, I am at peace, folded in the glory of my coming. The spitting fire engulfing me. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. I'm dancing with Jesus... In Heaven with Jesus... I am alive again. I am alive again...

It annoys me
I hate you
I don't like that gift
Take it back
You know what he wants
But you don't know I i want
You spend all your money on him
And spend only ten bucks on me
I gave up on Christmas
Because Santa wasn't real
We look up to him like a god
And that I don't accept
I don't believe in religion
Or in creations of Disney
I do not believe that Santa will show up
I don't believe god will show up
All these stories told by mankind
Are fake.
That's the end of Christmas
How about we live in real life
Instead of living in a fantasy

how would you feel

" How would you feel ? "
By Rodney Riggins

How would you feel ? if you were 
misunderstood where no one ever
talk to you as if your were no good.
How would you feel ? If you was
in my shoes overweight  full of hate
I guess you never would.

How would you feel ? to be with 
someone so long had a son by you
then another came along. (It's not mine)
How would you feel ? if no one talk
to you not even family members in laws
you thought were cool with to you.

How would you feel ? If I ignored you 
like you do laughing with everyone sitting
 in the front room.
How would you feel ? if you had to ask
for money in reality the other person your
with don't really want too.

How would you feel ? when you have to 
depend on another they did the same for 
you but It's you who always suffer.
How would you feel ? if these things 
happen too you you never experience
*****like this now really have you.

How would you feel ? to be told about 
trust while your the one that's faithful
the other goes out to ****.
How would you feel ? if the other keeps
lying to you then you see another
in the car right beside you.

How would you feel ? all alone growing
up was never taught to shave or fight or
even ****. No inspiration my life really sucks
i think I grew up as a social misfit. How would you feel ?
 not knowing half your family found out I had a sister
at 17 by my daddy.

How would you feel ? to be blamed so much
getting beating for false reasons my teen yrs
was really nuts. How would you feel ? to be 
rejected so much to be told I'm sorry Rodney
but please stay in touch. (she's lying)
my feelings became numb until I really had none
never really cared about life how
could I have one.

How would you feel ? not to be loved or touched
having all these deep feelins inside about bust.
How would you feel ? If it was me who had another
not nowing if r child would have a sister or brother.
would you have stayed like I did forgave me for 
my mistakes and helped me raise the other kid.

How would you feel ?
you say you have feelings,but it seems to me
that you don't have any.
"How would you feel?"

Every Day and Every Night

At times things we cant explain, happen again and again,
Good or bad it just happens, it happens.
Every day and every night, I've gotta wonder why,
I cant see.. some of my family.
Sometimes we cant be, apart of lives that we used to be apart of.
It's harder on some, they try to stay strong...
Try not to show it cuz they been scared all along.
We go through it at different times,
It effects a lot of stages of our lives.
At times things we cant explain, happen again and again,
Good or bad it just happens, Oh it just happens.
Every day and every night, I've gotta wonder why,
I cant see.. some of my family.
Sometimes we cant be, apart of lives that we used to be apart of.

For My Father

Snowflakes fell on city streets
Silent descent from the sky
A soul's new journey to the earth
Sounds of a newborn's cries
Angels gathered in heaven
As the soul made its way
Their tears from separation
The joy in a mother's pain
The sunrise shown with graceful intent
And snowflakes melt away
A first gaze in his daughter's eyes
The father silently cries
Waves of time crashed the beach
Riptides of love and pain
Perfection of life's complexities
Drown melodies of lullabies
Waters recede, life goes on
Revealing our path of stepping stones
Letting go of pain, we lighten our load
Let's walk together again
I love you, Father
You see -- The sun's up again
Holding onto love, we have hope and faith
For I am your daughter

A Mother Sings To Her Son At Dusk.

Lie down right here, my little one,
and fill your head with dreams.
Don't worry what went wrong today,
Life's never what it seems.

There's world enough and time enough
to trim the edges that are tough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

Make room inside your little head
for all the angels up above.
I'll stroke your cheek and whisper so
You'll know your mothers' love.

There's world enough and time enough
to smooth the edges that are rough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

The day will come when you go off
to seek your fortune far and wide.
Remember this when off you go:
I am always at your side.

There's world enough and time enough
to trim the edges that are tough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

Someday you'll know the softest joy
when I won't be here to see.
You'll hold the sweetest fruit on earth,
then both say a prayer for me.

There's world enough and time enough
to smooth the edges that are rough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

Christmas Time

*Christmas Time* 

There is a bright light
A bright light
Around the block
Its jingle bell time
It’s a well time
Santa’s coming to night Oh, oh, oh
So cheerful night
Let sleep till the night goes by
Oh, it’s a swell time
Mistletoe hanging so sweetly
I can kiss you till the night is sleepy
Oh, it’s a swell time
My children’s time
Watching as they scream in cheer
Oh, let me be with you
Oh, and let you be with me.
It’s a swell time; it’s a fun time,
To watch the night go by
Singing jingle-bell time
It’s a swell time
Eating all night till sun comes up
Children sleeping to know there fun to come
Cleaning up, cooking it’s all the same
To busy to think, so cheerful in so deep
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, let me be with you
Oh, and let you be with me.
It’s a swell time; it’s a fun time,
To watch the night go by
Oh, oh, oh

Someone's Watching Over Me

When my back's against the wall
And I feel like there's just no place to go
When I've lost my love, my will, my pride,
My everything, except a heart full of woe;
When my wings have been brutally clipped
When a knife is stabbing my heart
When the world turns its love against me,
Setting me apart;
When I'm backed into a cold corner
When I'm standing in the dark, I'll still believe
That tomorrow will come soon someday
Because someone's watching over me.
When my strength is nothing but an empty well
When my heart is full of jealousy
When the missing piece of the puzzle
Spells out nothing but "empty;"
When I'm lower than low, I'll still have faith
When I'm standing in the dark, I'll still believe
Because it's written in the sky
Someone's watching over me.

Dear Treasure

Dear loved one,
Will you remember me when I leave?
Will you remember my smile as I walk away?
Tonight, you are able to look at me
But, tomorrow I might not be here
I lived with you for many years now
Yet one day, I shall leave
Forget me not loved one
For I love you so
To an extent that
I can not bare your sad moods
Tonight, I ponder so intently
At what the future beholds
Tonight I ponder intently
At what shall happen when I leave
Dear loved one 
I love you so

Walking down the block
street lights they blind me,
trying to find a spot
where memories can't find me.
High off this weed
hearing sounds of crying,
I turn around, look
and see my past behind me.
I must get rid of old habits
hurting my present,
never felt touched
by an angel I stay stressing.
At times I wonder is me Allah's testing only,
cause he can punish the phonies and just console me
leave me lonely if you have to
my future's in trouble,
me and the Reaper need to talk
we have to huddle.
Let me breathe to concieve a seed,
truley indeed if I bleed
you're a b---h indeed believe.
I'm still young don't want a final destination
steady pacing in my living room
sipping liquid meditating.
Allah if I die before it's my time,
please let me ressurect as a rhyme I can't die.

Life is hard enough
you all make it seem death is
easy I,
take nothing for granted
I'm weezy I keep on
seeing my,
bad dreams repeating
at nightfall when I'm
sleeping my,
inner demons know as my
enemies keep on
weeping why.
Shaytan stands on my shoulder with
eagle eye,
talking in my earlob
I hear no evil on the other side.
So when I'm speaking the truth
peeping my moves
keeping me cool
when I speak speech
reaching to you.
Bad news stays close to me
seeking for clues,
I must be focused when I
ease in the booth.
Won't think about my, parent's divorce
won't think think about the,
love of my life
leaving me for New York.
I have to get, off my mind those times
and look ahead,
that's why I sit, write rhymes,
take it to the head.
Allah if I die before it's my time,
please let me ressurect as a rhyme I can't die.

Birthday Rose

Introduction: A mother is such a wonderful poetry...She is the compass and blessing for her children and no matter what, in our hearts - she's the rose that never dies.

The moment I first opened my eyes, I saw your glowing face in shine You took me in your graceful arms, And poured my life in peaceful charm You sacrificed more than I can count, To raise me and strengthen my ground Every time you heard me scream, You took off from your every meal You fulfilled all my needs and dreams, You mean the world and more to me A teacher, a playmate, An answer, a guide of fate You reach out and pull me back, Whenever I get lost off track You love me like no other, Words just simply can’t explain, you are the best mother With you I never pretend, by your values I transcend You help me get my courage tight, You aid me to my wisdom right You are my loving mother, Someone I have to share my thoughts Always you know, always you care, Always you feel, always you heal Your tender smile lights up my life, From doubts that keep me captive at night Forever in my heart, you reside You care so much and feel so deep, You’re just everything I need I’m above grateful to have you in my life, As every time I think of you, I always feel revived.

The Mother She Could Never Be

Cookies, cakes, and candies made

Jars of jams and jellies too

Clothes mended and made

Through the years you've watched me grow

Now we share phone calls, an occasional visit

And photos from one another

As my children grow I truly see all that

You've done for me

I love you so for being the mother she could

Never be

And the toil of the gods was great part1

{I close my eyes and see you there, looking at me. I watch myself watch you. As I look at us 
in mind I wonder to myself if I’m seeing myself watching you then who am I.}
Ten thousand years the time that’s past and during the years all our knowledge was lost
Stolen and hidden often misused, twisted distorted or simply fake.
Now in the end at this precipice we start to grasp the weight of the cost
For too long now we have been blinded to what is real and what’s at stake
Our cosmos a chaotic symphony blanketed in an ocean of time
An entire race of beings without eyes to see and the minds of children
Left here clueless alone stumbling clumsily in the dark waiting for a sign
So much disconnection has transpired since we freed ourselves from Eden
Much too obvious are planet is not like us, who or what we are
A circus of gloom bent on destruction to ignorant and riddled with fear
Out in space there where many thriving worlds all rotating around its motherly star
We have been exiled here we deserve the freedom no longer should we toil here
Our failure to see life for what it is, its unique and a space-time miracle
Any life, anywhere, in the vastness of time a single blade of grass is precious and rare
As we consume and devour our forsaken garden for material that is tangible
A young and dieing world full of slaves and orphaned souls, a heavy cross to bear

Details | Lyric | |

my child

you are
the only star on a cloudy night 
before its about to rain
the last calm wave coming in
before a hurricane
the brightest color in the sky 
when a rainbow's overhead 
the last tear in my eye
before I go to bed

you are 
the ray of sun that gives me hope
when showers plague the sky 
all the glowing little lights 
that we call fire flies 
the glistening of the winter snow 
on the coldest night 
you are my child 
and I am yours 
forever in the sky.

Same Boat

I woke up this morning and I took my breath,
prayed to Allah that I took that step.
Making it's hard but I cooked what's left
and saved the rest for the family
can of peas
that I took off the shelf,
you understanding me.
I have dreams so everyday I stand and freelance styles
it's been the same process sense I was a child now,
I write a song every other day the other days
I discover ways to put a buck in the bank hussling.
We all struggling, financially I hate
to see my mom stumbling loosing her job again.
Forget sobbing when the times get tough,
put in overtime at my job
dimes stack up, it's not enough....listen.
Bills rack up out my checks they take half
I spend the rest on food and music you do the math.
Everyday is like another step taken,
we're in the same boat all trying to make it.

I know it's people that think it's fine where I'm at,
but they haven't seen through the eyes of Iraq.
Suicide bombers take lives they die fast,
even little kids hold knives that slice back
at US militants, orders from Bin Laden
land hold killers even innocents get blasted.
Car bombs go off,
youngen buying bread for mother
gets his leg blown off for him it's so hard.
That life I want no part so Allah
I fight through life writting like I've been
struck by the venom of white vipers.
Might not see the next day the best way
to write until I'm dead face
down shot up from tech spray.
I live and die for the music
it's all love don't try to confuse it.
Until then don't judge my soul, I know
you know the feeling let's roll we in the same boat.

Please Dont Let Her Go

The call of a mother
the mean words of her children
the pain that lingers through the years

Her pain suffocates her
dying in a lonely place
waiting to be heard
she turns a lighter color

They try to save her
but their love is not enough
they stand in a white room
waiting for the words 
the words no one wants to hear

Please dont let her go
let her stand oh lord
let her be with us 
let her feel no pain

The lights dimmer

the ceiling falls
their standing underneath the sky
their mother stands before them
she tells them to let go of all the guilt
that has built up for she is safe and okay now

They stand as the light of there mother fades
there alone now standing underneath the black sky

their pain and guilt fades knowing there mother loves them and always will

Dedicated to Granny Helen Caccumise (you were like a mother to me and may you rest in peace)

A Fading Reminder

Waking up with my face on the floor
I get up and step on something
My bass makes a buzzing sound
The low pitch of the strings 
An eery feeling Screaming through my head

I realize this isnt my room
Its covered in a blue haze
Everything is dark, scary
I scream but i cant hear myself

I remember the night before
when everyone was sitting around the table
laughing, cheering, happy

I turn the knob and open the door
I step out into cold sand
The sky is gray 

Walking into a world i havent seen before
Dead animals hanging on trees
There are no cars 
No one is around
I turn back and look at my door

Just a room in the middle of nowhere
Standing alone 
Ive had the feeling before

A light appears 
i walk towards it
i walk throught the lights

it takes me to the past
when everything was okay
where no one judged you 
where you werent alone
when everything had meaning

... When i existed
just a fading reminder of who i used to be.

I remember being a young girl 
Wanting to fit in 
Thinking pounds of makeup would make me pretty
So unsure of myself
With no self-esteem 
I had no clue 
That just being me 
Was more than enough
It was 


Wanting so bad to fit in 
I let myself believe that going by a different name
Would make me pretty
And make people want to be around me
So first I went by Gina, 
Then I changed the spelling to Gena 
Then to Jeanna 
Not realizing that no one really cares how it is spelled
And no matter what 
My real name is enough 
It is 

As I grew up 
I began to learn 
Isn’t about quantity
It’s more about quality
It was a lesson I had to learn on my own
Through a lot of abuse 
Being used most of the time
Yet among the users and abusers 
Without realizing it there was a few 
Who were true 
With them though it wasn’t about the makeup
The hair or the name 
It was about me 
The real me 
And from them and my family 
I learned that 
Just being my self is 


So Gina, Gena and Jeanna well they are gone
It’s Jean now 
And I am proud of that 
I am proud of who I am 
And even if I don’t have an army of friends 
The ones I do have 
I am happy to have because for the first time 
I can honestly say 
They are true friends 
Who like me for me
And that right there 
Is more than good it is


So now the makeup is minimal 
Just enough to enhance the beauty that is already there
I wear my hair however I like 
I don’t worry about fitting in 
I believe that if it is meant to be then 
It will be because I am being me
Not the person I used to think everyone wanted me to be
Now I know that 
While the fake me yeah she was pretty
Where the real me is more 
Because I am

I pray to God
Hear my cries

My family crisis
Never Dies

I am praying 
To find out Why

I couldn't bear 

I pray to God
Hear these whispers

My family crisis
Is Getting Worse

I am Praying
So that We can Live
Something Better

But where is
That Hidden Door?

I Pray to God for some answers!
We just had enough!
We Deserve some happinesss
We have meant no such Harm
We called Upon Your Blessings
We prayed so Hard
We wonder Why is this Happening
Fallen so deep
We are Breaking Apart!

Oh God
Hear My cries

God, Hear my Whispers

We are Struggling
To Survive..

Chapter 27

Dear Ma I don't mean to write a letter and flee,
but it seems I got the Devil in me.
This average Joe tested my manhood and now
I have to teach him a lesson,
bullet wounds to his chest will leave him breathless
"I'll be out in a second."
Slipped on my jeans, tank top, t-shirt and jacket,
and my Nike's, gray gloc, I'm nervous but fact is.
When I see him won't stop from merkin' this bastard,
Send him to Jenah all shot curdled up in casket.
Before I leave I hit the kitchen
for breakfast I'm hungry,
a couple candy bars, drinks, some
wheat breat and turkey.
Some pocket money I hit the door in a hurry
I left a letter on the kitchen table when mom reads it
"Lord Have Mercy!"
I had the stash in my pack jumped in the Lac put my pack
in the back gave Chief dap put the,
match to my black relaxed and chatted casually,
"Chief I think he hussles right up the block, him we gonna have to see."
The Reaper he gonna have to meet,
this son of a b---h caught me in an alley
put a gat to me and took my cash from me.
Swung his fist and tap my cheek see I ain't have to bleed
I hope he with his boys I'll rat a tat his peeps "they all no match for me."
I think the Devil's after me, please calm down
laugh and breath
don't get overheated cause he can blast at you.
"Chief I see him on 22nd, right their with the all white Sean John
and my diamond cut necklace!"

-----------in the middle of the story, I shoot the person and his girlfriend not
knowing who his girlfriend is, and here comes the twist in this poetic story----------

This can't be happening to me, that's what you'd hear
if my eyes talked
I shot my COUSIN down on the sidewalk.
I didn't know that she was cool with this figure,
if I wouldn't have known that I wouldn't have fooled with the trigger.
I placed my cousin's neck in my palm
carressing her arm,
I looked to the left and surely there was her mom.
I'm sorry, I really am......
Devil says, "It doesn't matter cause for life now you're eternally damned
now give me your hand."

Cant build a thing
The chains holding me down
Have slowly rotted over time
I need a soul that carries on through the pain (when the walls start collapsing again)
Give me a heart the ceases to fail
Despite the infection within

Dont take for granted this world we live in
Nevermind the fragile dirt we all end in

Time has had its way with me
The trail ive walked down
Has Fastly Deteriorated
I need a soul that carries on through the pain (when the walls start collapsing again)
Give me a heart that ceases to fail
Despite what you will find in me

Dont take for granted this world we live in
Nevermind the fragile dirt we all end in

The words we say,
The things we do,
The games we play 
And tricks go through,
The plans we make 
And world we bear
Are cheap and fake,
If noone`s there
To hold our hand 
And make us laugh,
To be our friend 
And share our path,
To be the one 
Who makes us better.
The faults we `ve done 
Don`t hurt and matter,
When we have those,
Who know and feel us,
When our pain grows,
They come to heal us.
Cause there are things 
We can not measure.
The joy love brings 
Is more than treasure.
One caring look, 
One tender touch,
That`s all it took 
To know how much
Our life is worth.
Without them near,
We`re lost on Earth 
In doubts and fear.
When there is  none 
To love and cherish,
We come undone 
And slowly perish.

Don’t you scold,
She is not bold,
The weakest sentiment,
She cannot contain!

A fresh rosy colour--
Of emaciated cheeks,
Contrasting rings somber,
Besieging the sunken eyes,

Her limbs slender,
Akin to a moon beam tender,
Complexion pallid,
Gaze languid,

The stature stunted,
The chest movements restricted,
Imperceptible fever,
With occasional shiver,

The ‘delicate’ personality,
Described by the laity!
Well! She is certainly frail,
Alas! Medically, a plaintive tale!

Classic Lullaby

Close your eyes go to sleep, listen to this lullaby.
Rest your mind; release your woes, to justify.
As you lay so warm and delighted tonight,
Secure in your thoughts, without any fright.
The hours ahead shall be quiet and serene.
Dream of gold, diamonds clear, so pristine,
Close your eyes go to sleep, rest mortal soul.
Dream a dream of how to master your goal.
Night goes quick, but you are so very calm.
Rest all your bones, a mind of little qualm.
Pray that your woes are gone and forgiven.
That no nightmares arrive, or would be riven,
Wake your eyes, mornings come, do not stultify.
Sing again what has been sung, classy lullaby.

Shes got bruises on her skin
And sorrow in her mind
Told her fighting back was a sin
Told her you were kind

Lying to her was too fun
She never doubted you
She never even tried to run
She even loved you, too

You took her life and now shes gone
Your signature for her death was signed
How will you feel when you see that dawn
When you have your daughter’s death on your mind

Lying to her was too fun
She never doubted you
She never even tried to run
She even loved you, too

You told your wife you’d hit her
If she said a word
What had happened to what you were
Silence could not have cured

Lying to her was too fun
She never doubted you
She never even tried to run
She even loved you, too

Hit your wife to death
Now shes gone aswell
She took her last breath
While hearing you yell

Lying to her was too fun
She never doubted you
She never even tried to run
She even loved you, too

I really never could have dreamed or even pictured the day
That the lord would take you from me but he toke you away 
I deeply wish he would have toke me but instead he choose you
And now i'm lost out in this world not know what i should do
I lost a special part of me you are my heart and my soul
I seem to feel so incomplete because you made me feel whole
I never thought that at this moment i'd be having to cry
While thinking of you for a minute as i'm watching the sky
I see your face out in the darkness as i'm closing my eye's
And Sam it's hurting at this moment as i'm saying good bye
I hope you're listening to this words because they're not filled with lies
Yea you can see my deep emotion for the tears in my eye's
I never had a broken heart until that day i lost you
And on that very same day i lost a part of me to
Now while i'm still down on this earth i'm still going to do what i do
But keep a seat right beside you because i'm going to meet you there boo...........................

Touch Of Blood

WHEN you are old and gray and full of sleep
Worry not, for with gladness I will be by your side
‘Til my sight is drowned in the cataract of tears

I will read, for you, the verses your lips once had 

Sounding on the flowers of time 
For the little gods, to enjoy, as they tread 
The path of their adolescence

Everyday, I will shake 
The pillows of your twilight nights 
To collect

Your remnants. I will paint them 
With lush of my thoughts, using the fingers 
Of your favorite Northern star 

That you may feel the warm

Touch of your 
Own blood
WHEN you are old and gray and full of sleep

A Walk To Remember

It was a Friday night, and I took a long walk around
Just to ease my mind which stress seems to surround
It felt so great, the warm breeze hit my face
As I glanced at the constellations shining from the east
So I step forward, and continue to reminisce
Moving silently, to what Atmosphere acknowledges
And the moon moves an sadly grins from the view
As a young kid walks off the emotions he once knew
A cow moo's, I see it standing in the dark
Another sleepless soul, looks like were in the same park
I glance up, just in time to see a comet
Close my eyes and make a wish, maybe I can stop it
And pocket it, cause the luck it holds I need
I'm tired of being out of money for this toll of dreams
I look away, towards the long road ahead of me
Push the memories from my view, and walk into another scene

Now a new scene, I see this young girl of fifteen
Staring in the mirror as a tear reflects from a dream
All she wanted was to be a witness of compassion
Yet instead she became a witness of verbalized aggression
Now she stepped forward, and crossed the lines into depression
Eye's pierced with the tears of absolute neglection
Mentally altered, this girl took thee abuse
Later to encrypt her wrists with a knife she shouldn't use
Another fight, so she turns to a heaven's view
Cries and she prays to a God she never really knew
Never understanding why life takes it's sways
While she sees a loving family when here life turns to gray
So she sneaks out, to walk off all her memories
Walks down a boulevard, yet it's like a country street
Kicks a stone in the light shining from the moon
As I watch in the distance as she walks outta view

Now a Veteran, straight outta World War Two
Stares out the window, with his eyes so blue
Remebering the times as a strong young chap
Now he sit's in his wheelchair, he's now handicap
Cause he can not forget all the blood that was shed
Young growing boys live's end before it begins
Haunted by the image, it now pillages his brain
Can barley even speak, without hearing bullets ring
He dreams of, taking back what he'd seen
A young Jewish boy left slaughtered by his feet
Wondering, what kind of human can achieve
Such a gruesome status, and still be an elite
It penetrates his head, even decades after war
But still he dreams nightmares of both blood and gore
He closes his eyes, and he prays for an escape
From this terror that has haunted him through the life he's made

Fiddlin with Riddlin

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Can you feel the adrenaline,
This big regiment of my medicine
Got my skeleton jigglin like gelatin
Fiddlin with this riddlin, this wigglin
Its crippilin, when i begin quibblin,
Over scribblin, this high is dwidlin
Do you remember when
I would rip off heads of Polly pockets
Stick a knife in the faulty wall socket
And be hiding in my sister's closet
for six hours to her scream, "Michael Stop It!"

Every Day and Every Night

At times things we cant explain, happen again and again,
Good or bad it just happens, it happens.
Every day and every night, I've gotta wonder why,
I cant see.. some of my family.
Sometimes we cant be, apart of lives that we used to be apart of.
It's harder on some, they try to stay strong...
Try not to show it cuz they been scared all along.
We go through it at different times,
It effects a lot of stages of our lives.
At times things we cant explain, happen again and again,
Good or bad it just happens, Oh it just happens.
Every day and every night, I've gotta wonder why,
I cant see.. some of my family.
Sometimes we cant be, apart of lives that we used to be apart of.

behind our eyes

Beauty ,the tormented pain,

hiding deep within.

A web of abandoned emotions,

wasted energies and chaotic dreams.

A dark chastising silence,

engulfed with flames.

murderous contempt, within our hearts,

for our fellow self.


Thick black ashes, entangled in a web,

of Stolen time, and memories.

Learning life's lessons,

harshly, without a forgiving word.


Leaving us gasping, for the breath of life...

Mother! Only a few, few days remain.
Worry not, I will return, return again
Like birds that in their nests do enter
Tearing the torturous traps of hunter.

I know each night you make extra meal
And wait in slight hope that I will, will
Come to eat supper being too, too tired.
But I am here so far, far away, starved.

Mother! I, I too linger for your affection
On the riverbed where lies my skeleton.
My two bony hands still, still, still seek
Your sacred feet that appears now bleak.

I will not go away from you again, again.
When you would sit solitary in the Eden,
Don’t think I have given you a new bluff.
Turning, you’ll find my face with laugh.

A Trip To Heaven

At times, the world demands too much
And more than I can give
So then I close my eyes and dream
A special place I'd like to live
There's calmness, peace and warmth in the air.

Lost 2 the GAME

Now since a youngin my people always pushed me to the side.
Never gave me anything but i never ever cried.
There was only one person who was right there by my side.
Know i'd never love another at that moment that she died.
But i kept going, got out on the streets and i kept grown.
Kept planting my feet like some seeds, you could say i kept sowing.
That was my grandmother, the only one who kept me strong.
The only one who kept me out the street from doing wrong.
I couldn't let it get me down, it had to make me stronger.
That just meant i had to struggle for a little longer.
Now i'm out here in these streets learning types of agriculture.
while i'm bagging up some dimes of this marijuana.
Plus i was doing chemistry and i was also learning math
because in the streets is where i learned two quarters make a half.
It's where i learned that grimy people try to take your stash.
That's why i couldn't play around i had to save some cash.....

To my First Born

To my first born we are  so proud of you
you were a good boy but a bit ornery too
a shy little lad and as cute as could be
your eyes they were as blue as the sea
you and your brother and sisters would play
had a good time while your dad was away
when your dad got home we'd all wait to see 
was he going to be sober or  drunk as could be
he always picked on you and made you so sad
you said when I grow up I won't be like my dad
we made a decision we had to find a new home
life would be better if you kids and I lived alone
but when you were eighteen your vow didn't last
you followed you dad down that old alcohol path
and for many long years on that road you did stay
and for all of those years on my knees I did pray
I would say son one day you're going to be free
and what a great witness to others you going to be
 three years ago you walked through the door
and said mom I'm not going to drink any more
and now you go to AA and meet with your friends
and now we don't  worry  where you have been
just a short time later you met the love of your life
and in just a few weeks you made her your wife
February 21  2007 you two  had a beautiful baby girl
Melissa Dawn came in and brightened our world
 we all see a miracle when we look into your face
we thank our heavenly Father for keeping you safe
God is so faithful  when we  trust him with our heart 
and Billy Ray  thank you so much for doing your part
words can't say just how much we love you

  To Billy Ray

Salem Time

Days of your youth are long gone, yet some things take us back . . .
Memories impressed forever like leaves in a book, 
In our mind's silent track.

A cottage was our home for a week, when our parents got the time . . .
It was another world which opened for us,
As we got away from the city's bustle and grime.

We slept upstairs; the attic was warm, as so was the woodburning stove . . . 
Breakfast was pancakes, eggs, and sausage,
Prepared with the salt of our parents' love.

The rooms were few but airy, outside was where we wanted to be . . . 
For this was our special playland place,
Amidst the trees, birds, and humming bees.

The lake, the sand, the pier so old; a swim in the water's deep blue . . .
Remembering the badminton and volleyball games,
And who tried to outscore who.

Having to walk back on the dark and lonely road at night . . .
From the fish fry, in our festive summer shorts,
Making our way to the cottage, by the beam of an old flashlight.

Those days of youth were filled with fun; carefree days of love and rhyme . . .
Though we are young no longer, we keep treasured memories,
Only in Salem Time.

sing it

I want to love you 
more than anyone has loved 
I want to give you 
all of my heart 
its easy to hold you 
when your feeling down and blue 
because baby I can't deny  
I have fallen hard for you. 

I want to see you 
more than anyone before 
I hope you know that 
I would never shut my door 
all I can say is 
I am true. 
Oh baby, 
nothing feels better 
than being here with you.

The Stone

I think i might write a letter
to someone that i havent
talked to in a while
Ill lay it beside her stone
the stone i brought for her
when i was really young
Ill wait until she writes back
Falling asleep on the cold ground
Waking up in the fog

As inhuman as a man's heart seems...
hidden inside is a tender side:
a beautiful side seldom seen by others;
and that fear of being sensitive
is a real hurdle for those men sworn in pride,
but manly qualities are judged by his deeds...
A woman's perception of the common man is that
he is lives in an unintentional masquerede,
to hide the sweetness he won't manifest;
and this unconformity won't let his beauty 
 be capturated by intense emotions of masculinity...
will he break the myth and be appreciated?

I have struggled with it indefinitely
and embraced this stereotype unsympathetically,
why are we supposed to be so uncaring and invulnerable,
and outgrow our own resistance and be so invincible;
have we realized that disharmony,
indignation and frustration are not truly noble?

As inhuman as a man's heart seems,
many sacrifice love for an unexplanable cause...
putting vanity before human compassion:
without guilt, regard and trepidation;
have we become so stubbornly persistent...
to lose all self-direction and prospective?

Offbeat Family

Written: 20Sept1999—1:10AM-Monday

There is a house
Build in dreams
And hollow blocks
Of memories.
Somewhere, in this big world
Five hearts ached…
From the pain of losing.
Their father died in grief,
Their mother—
Walked away in vanity.
What else is there that’s left?
These poor, helpless souls;
Gasping for air to breathe,
Reaching out for warmth,
Searching for meaning
Of their existence.
Like birds in the nest,
They’re not yet ready to fly
But always trying,
Have given up crying
But not the dream of flying.
Every fall, every wound,
Every broken wing,
They heal each other
With their own medicine—
The bond which holds them together
Would always be enough. 
Laughter and tears they shared
Through the ever changing seasons.
Fears and worries concealed
That tides of time wash away.
Staying close together
Is already hard.
Living right in people’s scrutiny
Is even harder.
But who’s to tell them what is right?
Only the chosen few who truly care.
Trust cannot be bought but earned.
There is a house
I called home…
And this is my story 
Of an offbeat family.

No Chains on Me

The chains are broken.
I am free.
I have victory.
Can’t you see?
There are no chains on me.
I have victory.

I once was blind,
But now I see.
Amazing grace
Stays at my place.
In my face,
You laugh at me.

My Father and I,
 Both see.
He has the last word.
He has spoken.
I’m free with victory.
There are no chains on me.

The chains are broken.
I see you laughing
The chains on your
Spirit and flesh,
Are provoking and poking,
Keep on doing what 
You are doing and in Hell
With your chains
You’ll be smoking.

The chains are broken.
I am free.
I have victory.
Can’t you see?
There are no chains on me.
I have victory.

   Ponytails and blue jeans 
Sat at Papaw's knee, 
Watching as he whittled 
On old branches from a tree. 
    And while he talked of cowboys 
And big old Texas ranches, 
He trimmed away the rough spots, 
While I dreamed of pony dances. 

     A wild stick horse remuda 
Began to run and play,
With every loving stroke,  
As he peeled the bark away.
     Using his "Old Timer"  
And carving in my brand, 
The best that he could find
And cut and shape with his own hand. 

     Now, each one of them was special,
And I felt I was too, 
As they kicked up dust behind 
This cowgirl buckaroo. 
     With reins of pink hair ribbon, 
Shoe strings and baling twine, 
There was "Buckin' Birch" and "Oakie," 
And "Ole Sticky" made of pine, 

     "Sassafras," and "Blackjack," 
"Willow," "Blaze," and "Scat," 
I never did corral 'em -- 
I just left 'em where they sat. 
     But next mornin', on the front porch, 
'stead of roamin' wild and free, 
They'd found their hitchin' rail, 
‘cause Papaw lined 'em up for me. 
     Along our trails together 
There were many lessons learned, 
Like bein' a cowboy through and through 
Is something that you earn 
     We'd partner up together, 
And team up in cahoots,
Once he defied my Mama,
Bought me red cowboy boots. 

     And often, when I wondered 
What to do on down the road, 
He'd always tell me, "little girl, 
When you get there you will know," 
     Sometimes you have to let things go, 
Sometimes you stand and fight, 
And anything worth doin', 
Is still worth doin' right. 

     With my wild stick horse remuda, 
We rode the range for miles, 
I knew I'd won my Papaw's heart 
By the way he'd laugh and smile, 
     I still have his sweat-stained Stetson, 
His boots, and his old knife, 
Sometimes I take them out 
Just to measure up my life. 
     And hold him closer to my heart, 
And know I have to try, 
To live up to the honor 
Of the wonder-days gone by. 
     On my stick horse remuda,
I learned the cowboy way, 
I’d give up everything I own 
To ride with him today. 

    My wild stick horse remuda 
Was quite the varied band, 
Born and bred with me in mind 
And trained by his own hand. 
     I’m longing for the legends, 
And the way we used to roam, 
With my wild stick horse remuda, 
And the man that we called "Home."

Liken Marriage to an Egg

The egg may be cracked
But, yes it can be fixed
With bit of bond and wax
And a few more little tricks

It’s only lost a bit of white
Not any of its yoke
The union yet still intact
Not too much really broke

With a bit more love and care
Some time to heal and mend
The crack can be set whole again
Made perfect in the end

Though Dead But Alive

Here it comes
For i to feel.
Though it matters
But i seem to count it less.

Here it comes again
Just as a reminder,
For me to weigh its departure.
Same i did to push away.

I thought it would leave with time
But here it comes again.
Never knew it was for a cause.
That i may keep reverencing its departed presence.

Though she means a lot,
More than you could think of.
Six-feets below she lies.
Her presence i strongly feel,
Just as it were you reading me.

Here it comes again
Not to disturb me.
She loves to make me happy and focused
That i might not derail.

Here it comes again
Coz, she loves to see me again.
To nurture and care
Just as she did do then.

A place in my heart
You definitely would find her.
For she lives as though
Dead she is.

I love to meet with her again
Not so quick in a bargain
For life's purpose i sustain
To obtain before i seize to reign
Do i pray to attain.

A song for the voyage

O God brainwash me O God eyewash me
So that I can see You With Your Glory

O God brainwash me by your great thought
Give me wisdom to thank you a lot

O God eyewash me by your sweet light
Wake me up make me feel alright

O God, come to me in my sweet dream
Please don’t sink my ship don’t make us swim

Details | Lyric | |


i hear the voices in my head
they surrond my wooden bed
telling me i should be dead

I try to move but i cannot awake
the forces drive me into a foggy state
suddonly i feel so much hate

I finally got the courage to get up
I walk to the doorway 
I fall to the floor

I have no feet
they have taken them
I used my feet for running
i used my feet for going unto the path 
i shouldnt have stepped on

I look to find my arms
but i dont have any
I used my arms for picking up things
i used them for putting things into my mouth
That i shouldnt have eaten

i feel for my lips 
But they are gone
I used them to say things i shouldnt have said

I cannot see
My eyes have gone missing
I used my eyes to see what i
shouldnt have seen

the voice returns to my head
your better off dead
your a fool for what youve done
now you will rot in hell with no one

I float in mid air
everything turns dark
everything is smothered in fire
i cannot breath
my soul leaves my body and flies up to heaven
it is used to be given to a new baby being born on earth

the man in the fire tells me
that when bad spirits go to hell
they get reused but outs bodys stay here
in this bottomless pit
they are only reused to have another chance

when good souls go to heaven
they stay up there with god 
starting a new life
and ending an old one

The American Legend

Soaring high, as the American's eagle pride higher now than ever before once more, elevated nearly every last peak how to mistreat the meek, weak unguided son why can't you offer unrequited love to everyone? oh, lord save me I cannot escape the agents that take hold of me, they surround me... So I levitate up and unbounded seems I've once again found it an escape, from an uneasy paradise This burst explosion A never ending love-peace energy welling up inside me like an underwater atom bomb forever and ever I shall go on accordingly unknown An art recession? let me make a correction this boy's a legend from birth on up banging hard breaking his way through the wall life can sometimes often throw up come crashing hard on the ground I wake knowing the feeling to lose everything except from what I learned from well known legends who made the wings I fly high on

Jump, scream, shout!
You are having fun!
Having the time of your life
Where it comes
Only once in a while
Walk, jog, run!
You are having fun!
Play, act, read!
They are all fun
What is fun?
There is no definition
Of fun
It is just your interest
Your desire
Of fun
That is fun
Three words of positive
Feelings in everyone
Is always fun

Get Lost From My World

Who do you think you are
Trying to mess around with me
Don't think too far
I know you won't let me free

Forget all your stupid words
It doesn't mean anything to me!
You think you had it all right
But it is the truth you can't see

I never thought you will be like this
Even though we know we are in the same roof
Brothers, that is who we are
But we act like fools

I am always the one to be blamed
I am always your target all the time
Trying to suffer my life
I know you would not care if I die!

Our parents scolded for our behaviour
But you stayed the same
You think I am the one who is wrong
While I am trying to change my ways!

Who are you to think I am a fool
I know you don't understand
Do you think I would like you to be here
And bring that pain again!

This is my world
Can't you see
Are you blind
That is so not me!

This is my world
Don't you care
Feel so tired
You are so not fair

I am not the one to be blamed!
I know that you still haven't learnt!
And I am the one who is trying to change!
So, get lost from my world!!

Get the hell out of my world!

Details | Lyric | |


I express my true emotions without expecting returns;
I set no rules how friends and people should love me,
because every love is very precious to me!

Love me less, or love me more;
and joy would take me away to soar...
thanks for the thoughts, however big or small!

Any friend who gives out of genuine love,
shouldn't give it for only a day, but forevermore;
yes, every love is very precious to me!

Nobody could imagine what's the greatest love;
hear me pray joyfully amid the silent walls of a room... 
where all my prayers become flowers in bloom!

Who can doubt my kindness when friends turn to me? 
Everything that I posses, I will give away gladly...
to show them that every love is very precious to me!

Never judge me for taking my time to give it;
I am always ready to offer it and share it...
admitting that every love is very precious to me!   

I hope to live longer and happier years that God intended for my good;
I'm sure obedience to Him will greatly favor me...
and that He'll certainly approve that every love is very precious to me!

Watching From Heaven

He’d just turned forty, a happy single daddy
He had sunshine days and his life on track
His two girls and him, he love’s his lit’l family
He would never even think of ever looking back
Cuz’ his two girls were growing  - way to fast

His days were busy, when springtime came calling
He farmed right on through the cold bitter rains
And when the planting season  finally ended
He’d caught a cough he just couldn’t shake by then
And that’s when he called me up

My heart beat fast as I packed my bags 
and  rushed to him
It hit me hard how his face was pale
 and his body thin
He smiled his smile at me and said -  come on in
He said  - brother you’ve got to help me
Cuz’soon my girls will be missing me

I need you to hug and kiss them both for me
Tell’em their daddy loves’em when they scrape their knees
Wipe their tears and tuck them in
Read them stories where the Prince always wins
And when they bring home their first dates
You make a mean face and you tell him straight
To have them home not a minute too late
You just tell him- I’m always watching 
From Heaven

I laid my head there upon his chest
My tears fell hard as he struggled for breath
My shoulders shook and he squeezed my hand
He said, I love you brother and you’re a good man
And I know you’ll be the greatest daddy to them
You just tell them – I ‘m always watching
From Heaven

I raised my head then,  smiled and said
I’ll hug them daily and tuck them in
I’ll tell them stories where the Prince always wins
They’ll know their daddy was strong and brave
And I’ll have fun scaring all their dates
I’ll teach them right and what is wrong
I’ll dry their tears when they hear your song
And when its hard and their missing you
I’ll just tell them- You’ll always be watching
From Heaven

Decades after decades
hunting for blood
going on the human world

For what runs after
it's our shy
falling in to cry
red blood in color
like limbs we tie

World is our big Home
earthly haven we live in
nothing will be received
by human killing

All we belong to same family 
of Adam and Eve
we believe

The big family of this World
divided in to many folds
generations gone ahead
that all we forgot

The tears of other
is tears of mine
even disregards
it binds

All are ours
brothers and sisters
Let us love for love
Let us behold

Amazing you

You picked me up when I fell down, You loved the hurt away.
You turned my disappointments all around you know just what to say.
For a moment I wish you could see yourself through my loving eyes.
Then you could see what words just can't say, then you'd realize.
That you are special. There is no one to compare to.
Your amazing with such strength and fortitude. 
Your  my hero.
Your amazing, amazing me, amazing you.

Devil's Roar

Talking in the kitchen,
Family is sitting on the counter joking around,
One of us feels singled out,    
From the counter pulls he you off and your head meets the grout,

Suddenly you get up, start laughing, and the rest join. 
You become possessed and stab him in the back,
First can't tell what with but something with a point,
Suddenly we all become victims of attack,
You strike over and over until until he's on the floor,
You do an uncanny impersonation of the devil as you roar

Environment has changed and we're surrounded by strangers,
They had come to witness a comedy show but now they're in danger,
They all scatter and run for their lives,
Escaping into fake staircases, walls, a few run just running no where in strides,

Somehow I just stand there, watch it happen,
No fear in me that I may become part of this,
I tell myself I need this info for the therapist,
No fear that I may be at risk,
Witnessing a demonic demonstration,
You want loved ones to feel intimidation.

Then I woke up..
Glad my reality doesn't get me all choked up
Childhood memories can be brutal and somewhat faux
I'm learning more and more I have a hard time letting them go

Feelings To Kill

Some days I watched
Sometimes I cried
Most days I dreamed
It felt unreal

It felt too far
To leave a scar
Too hard to stare
No one would dare

The howl within
A broken violin
Plays my chagrin

Nothing lasts 
Go back, go back
A sounding blast
In the shark’s playground

Some days I watched
Sometimes I cried
Most days I dreamed
Of synthetic happiness

Big Sister

If her pain serves to please you
She is all out of words
If her joy won’t amuse you
Her trust will be reserved
She’s begun to realise
That she’s not all at fault
Deep beneath those hate-filled words
She sees your true revolt

Oh such verbal skill you have
Howls harsh reality
As deep beneath the silence
Screams your veracity
Buried ashes of someone
Who hasn’t even wilted
She’s still alive, so don’t give up
Connections are just jilted

Wade through the stupidity
of your churlish stubborn ways
That negative energy
To get you through the days
Rummage for responses
Slave labour you can keep
Contagious as those bitter words
Adrenaline pumps deep

Pull in those reigns that haunt you
Take off your amour now
Bite your nails down to the quick
This hurt you should allow
Be sorry, please recognise
All those wasted chances
Now they’re gone, and it’s too late
All-in wicked glances
Comments shoot straight to the bone
Leave scars the blades so sharp
Immune to those words she’s known
Leave pin pricks in her heart

To peel away in the heat
Leave her raw and exposed
Naked, pour out empty threats
Words are super imposed
Skin etches out the journey
Grows each autumn and spring
Overbearing bitterness 
Twisted comments brewing
You will not admit but some days you miss her
Your partner in crime, your big sister

     They used to call me the low life cause i did nothing but dream alot. i day dreamed the 
whole day thinking how i want to get to the top. my friends used to laugh at me saying you 
wont get closer then an inch, but now i went through redeemption and they didnt, now how 
is the low life.
        it was hard knowing that my family was gonna get departed from each other, i 
remembered an old man told me that life as it is, its only gonna get harder. i didnt belive him 
tell we went broke and we had rent to pay, i didnt hesitated, i had to cross the line, but i 
had to get paid. but little did my family know, that the food that they ate was bought from 
the drug money that i made.
       I kicked backed to much, and i helped alot,  but since i changed my ways and got out 
of the game the old homeboys are calling me a sell out. sure, they dont know on how many 
times i gave out a hand, or on how i kept busting my ass for them.

     I came up to fast and got out hard from the game, and now im looking back on how we 
ran the game, it was all a shame on how the rest didnt had the guts to change.  i was too 
young on how i was kickin it,  drinking and smoking over the limit. i used to go by two rules, 
1 go nby the protcol, 2 dont like the rules go on your own. now i get paranoid everytime 
when i hear the knocks on the door ( if you know what happens)
                     hate me or love me.  sorry i am. but i hated on what was me back then. 
                                              For this is was my domain

Slipping Reality

What's happening to me? 
Am I slowly slipping away from reality? 
Have I really changed that much? 
Or is it supposed to be this way? 
Is my mom really right? 
Do you think I'll be okay? 
Am I really that bad? 
Should I put up a fight? 
Or is it all in my head? 
Take a look in the mirror 
What do you see? 
I see someone new... 
A different version of me... 
Tell me she's wrong 
Then sing me a song 
Say she's overreacting again 
And everything will be okay 
Am I slipping away?

Ho Ho Ho

Go to sleep 
Go to sleep
My little ones

Or Santa
Just won't come

For he knows when you are awake
For He knows when you are asleep

Close your weary eyes now
And I'll go take a little peek

Tap Tap Tap
Upon the roof

It's santa coming 
For I hear reindeer's hoofs

Hush Hush now
Don't say a word

Better hurry 
And fall fast to sleep
Or he just may leave you a big turd

Let sugar plums
Dance in those pertty little heads

As I made sure
Santa was nice and fead

Cookies and milk
With nothing else

Oh thank you my dear Lord
For this nice little cord

For they are fast to sleep
Now I can go back to bed
And count my own lost sheep

I’m completely intrigued
by the innocence of his eyes.
His laugh is so contagious.
He can open up a book
to a whole other world,
get you completely lost in the pages.
I envy his honesty
and his wild imagination.
There’s so much he can discover.
One day, he’ll find a soul mate
to stay by his side
and with all he has, he’ll love her.
But there’s no need to rush.
All that he needs,
he will surely receive.
Many years have passed already.
Seven birthdays…
it’s hard to believe.
So sad to watch him grow
and chase after life,
while time passes by.
I’m filled with regrets
of times we didn’t share
and a tear falls from my eye.
What more can I do,
what else should I say
to let him know I care?
I know we need each other
and I love him enough.
I only need to be there.
So sensitive and full of life,
always glowing with hope.
There will never be another
who lets me see the world
for what it can be.
He is my little brother.

Details | Lyric | |


I am doing all I can
To make sure you get the world.
I am doing all I can
To make sure happiness is yours.
I am doing my best
For you,
For your life,
For your soul.

My strengths will become yours
And you will surpass me.
My prayers will guide you
And you will find what you seek.
My hope and love will blanket you
But… you won’t know me.

I refuse to let you
See my pain.
I refuse to show you
The cruelness in my life.
My mountain is not yours
And all I need to do
Is love and watch over you.

I am your conscience
Your strength
Your angel
Your mother.

Tick Clock

I grow, I breathe, I exhale, I die
I learn, I teach, I provail when I try
Crawled, walked, fell down then cried
I slept then awoke just to ask God why?

Tick clock tick tock my brother is now born
Next, two sisters later the family is now formed
We love each other dearly the feeling is all warm
But when push comes to shove the family is now torn.

I look upon my watch and I notice how time flies
Not when having fun but when ken folks die
When ken folk cry it's makes a stronger man
Tick clock tick tock I see the grains of sand.

We Call Him "Dalton"

He came here smiling....
With cheeks round and fat..... 
His dimples so cute....
Capturing all of those about....

His eyes of blue....
Piercing ever so far into your soul....
You want to hold him forever...
And never let go....

His little arms reaching out...
As now he tries walking to you...
A gleam filling your face....
For that's your little boy...
A little boy...
God sent directly to you.....

The words "Daddy" and "Mommy".........
All come too soon....
They grow up so sudden...
But what can you do?

He soon will be pitching a ball....
Not giving you much time to rest....
For you will have to teach him....
How to be his best...

This bundle of joy....
As anyone can see.....
Brightens our world....
This little boy in blue....

He has two sisters....
And oh they love him so....
He is their play-pretty...
And this he already knows....

We call him "Dalton"....
If you were to see him....
He would set your heart aglow......

He is as of an Angel.....
Smiling at all he meets....
A smile that....
Sometimes I even...
See in my sleep......

This little bundle...
So short and round....
Will fill many hearts with joy..... 
For God has sent us.......
One of a kind.....

Arms of Thee

Tonight I shall sleep alone, for my last and final time, and let my dreams set the tone until the morning chime. But when the next I sleep I shall hear you softly breath, and bless the Lord my soul to keep, I shall sleep in the arms of thee.

Another Saints gone home

We just got the news today
she will soon be going away
the doctors done all that they can do
but it's not over for her
she's just going home
she's faught her fight 
Her battles now are through

another saints gone home Hallelujah
another child of God reaches Her heavenly home
another saints gone home Hallelujah
Praise the Lord 
for now at last her victory is won

When the time has come for me to go away
I want my friends and family to see
that its not time to mourn
but to celebrate 
this life I've lived
 I pray they all may sing

another saints gone on hallelujah
another child of God reaches the Heavenly gates
another saints gone home hallelujah
Praise the Lord
Some day we'll see her in the heavely home.

Dedicated to the memory of my grandmother Beulah Campbell who was a great

Miss Kelsey Louisa

			Miss Kelsey Louisa is only 5 years old.

but she’s figuring out a lot of things about life.

		she knows more than when she was only 4 years old.

Kelsey knows about love.

	it’s the way her dog Sandy chases a laughing squirrel

	its also the way mama smiles when she gets a letter from daddy

Kelsey knows about unfairness too.

	this one is the way mama calls her for dinner right when she’s almost to the middle of
her cherry tootsie roll pop that she saved from the doctor’s office

	its also the way Molly tripped her in the park when Kelsey didn’t share

Kelsey understands nervousness.

	it’s the way a deer looks when it gets caught eating the roses in the garden

	maybe its also the way people sometimes twitch…a cracking of the 	knuckles, a pacing of
the floor, a tapping of the foot, even a clenching and 	unclenching of the lips

oh, and Kelsey understands death too.

	this one is the jingling of the phone during dinner
	they aren’t supposed to answer it, but sometimes they just have to

	death is also the sound of the emptiness coming from the broken clock on 	Kelsey’s
bedroom wall

all these and more Miss Kelsey Louisa knows.

				except for one.

			just one.


	is it the smell of burning cookies?
	or maybe the flash of a jolt she feels when someone sneaks up on her 	during hide-and-seek?

	or what if it was the time when her favorite color crayon snapped in two?  	what an
awful, awful, desolate noise that was…

Kelsey knows about happiness.

	this one is easy!

	the shade of the yellow ribbon on the head of a mannequin in the nearby 	clothing store

	happiness is sunshine, painted fingernails, sticky sweet watermelon juice 	running down
her face, sand castles, and twirling till she’s dizzy and the 	entire planet pirouettes
around her

	but most of all,
	happiness is the way Kelsey felt when her daddy came home and hugged 	her

	his camouflage uniform and boots were gleaming

			Miss Kelsey Louisa is only 5 years old.

but she knows a lot of things.

			many more than when she was 4.

when will people of the world get it right
no more war's , no more fights
one family , one planet
mother earth feels all this negativity
and doesn’t understand it
we are all native to the earth
we are all family from our time of birth
shouldn’t life have more value and worth
the time has come to re-direct our search

we won't find what we're looking for creating enemies
solutions are what we need with peaceful possibilities
all life in the universe depend on us now
we have to make it happen some way, some how

we can make it ,if we try
you can make it ,if you try
just try a little harder, dig a little deeper
inside yourself, you’ve got to know who you are
everybody is a star, everybody is a star
attitude, gratitude, fortitude,to your magnitude
how bright does that light shine in you
everybody is a star, you just got to know who you are.

Come Meet Mary

Eyes turned sharply,
as she walked inside,
looking so timid,
she was about to cry.
Short leather skirt,
stacked heels of red,
one lady got up,
and this is what she said.
Welcome my child,
we've been waiting for you,
follow me,
we'll sit on the front pew.
Where are you from,
sure hope you like this town,
you could have heard a pin drop, 
no one was making a sound.
Then the minister,
walked down the aisle,
put his hand on the shoulder,
of this poor lost child.
He turned to the people,
that he saw every week,
as he wiped a tear,
from his rosy red cheek.
Come meet Mary,
she comes from downtown,
I met her at a shelter,
still no one made a sound.
He gave  Mary a robe,
and handed her a mike,
and told them get ready,
this, you're going to like.
The voice of an Angel,
no music at all,
a glow all around her,
that everyone saw.
She found a new family,
actually, a new way of life,
and every Sunday,
she sings to her Savior , and smiles.

Fast Awake

Thank God for 7-27, when my son flew in
Life as it should be will forever begin
Charming little visions of how days are meant
To teach him as he shows me how life is spent

Listen to me now and read what I find so true
Words are like a beat that can start a groove
Bring the rhythm back to lift your spirits up
Don't worry too much because we all get stuck

My life seems to stop before it begins
Caught in another ever-recurring trend
Giving away every one of my previous wins
With Faith and company until my life ends

It's time now to be down again
Even faster than western winds
Life can run around, leave you in loop
Feeling that life needs one more scoop 
Tip the timer over, fall with the sand
Live for every second you possibly can

I will soon learn should luck turns up
I'm lost, backwards, and running amuck
Trying to regain what I thought I missed
Elusive, erratic and ending up like this

Never have I wanted to be other than here
Life in crystal-clear brings visions near
Capable are your dreams so easily achieved
All you have to do is work & truly believe

Look for a big picture in whatever you see
Never believe free, it offers no guarantee
Just sit back and listen to tales they tell
And make your own path but remember it well

Don't try to be so deep, just work to relax
Make life a story but include all the facts
Learn about yourself when you're at the mic
Work the crowd just to see what you're like

Life will soon be everything you need it to be
Proceed with sight don't let only destiny lead
You always have control in every step you take
Follow dreams today and always live fast awake

At times I don't know where this path would go
Like I'm hosting a show I've never seen before
Filling in the gaps, taking punches for others
Learning along the way what life really offers

It’s time now to be down again
Steps closer to an unknown end
Digging up dirt nearly burying yourself
At least the digging is good for health
Live your life now, stay until the very last
Live your life today as if it's already past

Missing You

I sent a balloon
Into the sky,
I know that you
Are wondering why…

The balloon is free
To roam above,
Sending my sorrow
Along with my love…

The balloon flies up
While the bird sings,
Sending my mom
Her angel wings…

So when I get down
Feeling the gloom,
I look up to heaven
And send her a balloon.

Leaving Home

There is a wee tall tale, 
 that me father told us three.
He'd heard it from his father before him.
It was part of his family tree.
He told of how he'd left Ireland,
and sailed the ocean blue,
to land in another country,
that to him was all new.
He told of why he'd gone there,
of the nasty deed he'd done,
and how he'd had to sail away,
and keep right on the run.
He told of how his mother,
cried when he sailed.
She wiped her tears on her apron,
and gave way to a sad, sad wail.
She knew she'd nary again see him.
This child she loved so well,
for he was now a fugitive.
His soul he'd had to sell.
So as the tears were falling,
she bid him fond farewell.
She kissed his cheek so softly,
and told him, her love with him would dwell.
And as the ship left harbor,
with this young Irish lad,
a mother's heart was broken,
with the pain of one who's sad.
I miss me mother dearly now,
for all these may a year,
but I'm glad to have you sons,
to be with me right here.
And the moral of this story:
If you must ever roam,
Take your mother's address,
so you can keep in touch with home.

Lullaby for the Grieving

Lay your head down precious one
And dry your eyes right now
For dreams of happy endings
Will be coming anyhow

The rains will stop, that much we know
Though we may not know how
So walk ahead to dryer ground
Where my love will abound

Know that when you're all alone
I've never been more near
And when you think I'm gone from you
I'm holding you, my dear

The nights will pass before you know
The sun will rise once more
I'll be with you in the sunshine
And with you in the storm

In the sunshine, in the rain
Just look up to the sky
And wish you may and wish you might
And to you, I will fly

I'll never leave you, never go
Where you can't find me there
Just look inside your heart to find
The love we share

Details | Rhyme | |


As I lie in your arms tonight I know
The love that we share can't be broke
Tried, True battered til the end
Baby, you're my best friend
A kiss from you is all it takes
And those three little words that you say
I don't know exactly where to begin
But baby you're my best friend
The world may pass us by 
But I know we'll be alright
As long as I have you here with me
And though some things will change
My love's gonna stay the same
Cause I'm living out my destiny
We might travel the world as far as we can go 
Or just settle down, and go with the flow
There ain't no telling where our lives might be spent
Just as long as you're my best friend.

Tonight As I Veiwed Your Remains

A few days ago your battle with MS ended
And your last breath was drawn
You peacfully closed your eyes
And your final journey carried you Home.

You went to be with your Saviour
As he awaited you on His Throne
Your struggles of this earth were over
For He sent His Son to rescue you 
And gently placed you in His arms.

Your body now so small and flare
And with no strenght left to live...
Accepted His out stretched arms
And away He took you
Departing as the Dove.......
'The Dove Thats' Controlled by God's Will'

He carried you to see your earthly father
Whom you lost suddenly as a very young man 
God knew how you had loved and missed him
So He placed Mr. Luker right within your palmed hand.

Your three sons ( the second of which I barred)
Were all there with you 
When the 'Death Angel' 
Made It's way into the room.

Each with tears of pain rolling down their cheeks
Helplessly watching knowing nothing 
Could be done to keep their daddy from leaving that room
Each trying to prepared themselves
For what lay just hours ahead.

They sat with each other 
As each one fought hard to be a strong man
Each one knowing they were losing their daddy 
And also losing their best friend.

Trying to remain strong for little sister
Knowing she and her mom were on their way
For they knew she was too young to understand 
And they would have to chose the right words to say.

To tell her of ........
This 'Final Journey Home' and it's departure
Of Life and Death....
The 'Journey' her daddy (and she must be told)  
Has aboarded and he has already left.

Jimmy rest in peace now and move about in 'Your Heavely Home'
You have lefted behind alot of 'Widsom and Knowledge'
 As you were struggling daily to live....
But accept your Rewards now and rejoy in the Lord.....
You're in Heaven now..........Where there is no more pains..........
There is no more burdens.....There is no more worries....... It is finally all over.

Look below now and see all is o.k.
After all, don't you remember talking to and teaching your children 
And telling strangers
About our Almightly God?
And about the Lord?

I will always remember you, Cecilia
Jimmy died April 16, 2008 after 22 years of living with MS.  He fought a hard 
battle till the end.

What Happened After The Roadtrip

I came back to a scene that was unbelievable! Tragedy has struck my home but what hurt me
most was my mom sitting there with her head down and tears falling from her eyes.
Everything went up in smoke but for some strange reason I still have hope.

What did we do to deserve this? I know I brought pain to you Lord but I want an answer to
Why am I still in this place, why do I pray to you, why did you let my mama cry?
Is it so bad to ask for a second chance? A second chance at LIFE!
What does that mean, a second chance?

Seconds have already passed  while you've been writing this poem.
This is real life it ain't no game!
You can't press restart and start your day all over again.
I wish I had my grandma by my side to tell me this and not have to learn it on my own.
I can't see anything beyond that door.
Should I take a chance or just give up and die?

once longing love

This time your eyes don't seem to bare the familiar strength
you been staying away from me you've gone to every length
i did every thing i could to lend a helping hand
now your broken and its hard to under stand
this was no ones plan love makes harsh demands

even though i can see your heart is truly broke
when i tried to hold you i was just a joke
now things are changed nothing like before
i have become something so much more
a ache still nags deep within my core a life left in ashes spread upon the floor

i wonder where you ll go who you ll see
i wonder if the only thing you think about is me
the empty hole of things left unsaid
a wall of noise stands strong in my head
some how this feel like I'm dead but I'm watching in you go instead

how many times could i try to be the one you needed but i know it was the ego i feed ed
a callous soul without any notion of truth hope or devotion
farewell my once longing love

No ones to blame, that your soul is put to shame

I don't understand, how i'm blame to be the biggest sin the world can see. you're little tall tails, you try and make the people believe are all hopeless, just like the heart inside of you beats. i'm breathing like i always do, i'm not gonna miss a single breath over you. when you're the one, that's suppose to be here for me, even when death captures the life of me. sadly, you're mistaken, for the life you've overtaken. the life of a drugged out temptresses is not a life to lead, thats why you aren't my example of the future to me. i don't want to be the one that is always the one to plead, for money, for sex, for looks, oh you're something i've learned to not be from those certain books. you weren't there for me to write, when you were suppose to be, the introduction author about the life of me. the life of me, how interesting can that be? well, i must say, you helped me be able to write about a girl who has been terribly betrayed. where's my mother, the one whose suppose to be like none other? you gave me no one, but myself to look up too.

Birthday tidings for my eldest sister

the half century mark of being resident on earth

especially when with a little bit of effort ye can remember life soon after birth
   from the one whose passage (mom) might still trigger momentary bouts of 

progression toward senescence forces greater awareness of mortality without

taking stock of unique existential tapestry a weave of sadness and those to 
   some seem to possess ability toward progression of aging with dignity and 

how to reckon with beast of burden  integrating ways to meet nemesis with a 
   a private challenge each of us must confront with our own battle ax
reconciling countdown with demise raises question of purpose being born only 
to die

hardly earth shattering merely express sentiments toward those whom we care
   despite less than stellar communication an attempt now to reach out in the 

business of each our respective attendant various and sundry domestic kin 
   absorbs a good amount of daily energy and time
an effort clamors (on my part) to compose birthday note and bring at least a grin
   thru this poetry milieu of mine mainly thru stream of consciousness rhyme.
no matter that affection rarely demonstrably and volubly shown toward first born
lack of a close knit rapport during my emotionally fraught tumultuous earlier life 
   mostly likely bred measurable disappointment within sentient self to feel forlorn 
which past and present trials and tribulations which sensitivity prompt ye to morn

Soldiers Cry

Bleeding from the heart I have nothing to show
I saw the deaths of many people I did not know

I couldn’t help them breath, all they had was a blank stare
My heart fell to the ground I felt lost because I cared

How do you tell someone’s family that they are gone
How do you tell them before they see the morning dawn

I have no place to lay I have no home to stay
I miss my family that I left behind, the ones that I cannot see
I wonder if they ever think about me
I wish you could just sit with me

I wish my heart did not ache
I hope this wasn’t a mistake

It smells like chlorine, it smells like rain,
Summer is here, it's back again.
Temperature rises, hot days are here
Heatstroke's all we have to fear.
Beach days and sandy shores
Vacation time; we beg for more.
Water, pool parties, friends and games,
Every day is different; nothing's the same.
Pictures are taken and passed around
Happiness is the only sound.
It smells like chlorine, it smells like rain,
Summer is here, it's back again.

“Innocent  Syphilus?
He is debaucherous!”
Exploded his wife
In dismal grief!!

Avidly lecherous
Became cunning and treacherous
His lascivious play
Was his plaintive lay!

His ‘unusual canker’
Was in fact a genital chancre,
The randy Syphilus
Had contracted syphilis!

The acne on his face
Brought him disgrace
For it extended  beyond the chin
And all over the skin.

Because of the sins of Syphilus
The mirth from her life vanished!
Tell me, tell me O Jesus!
Why was she atrociously punished?

The 90's

I was born in the nineties
Where my mother used to sing melodies
of her music so sweet to hear
of her voice which stole my fear.

I was born in the nineties
Where my sister used to read fantasies
of her imagination so amusing
that her heart would stop beating.

I was born in the nineties
Where my brother used to play in balconies
his laughter so loud and audible
And his caress makes me comfortable.

I was born in the nineties
Where my father used to tell stories
of his experience with his best-friend
that his smile would have no end.

I was born in the nineties
A time where I watch cartoons and movies
New one's came and all are gone,
Just like life when time is done.

You Did Not Go Alone

Although you died one cold dreary night...
On a lonely road...
Not too far from your home....
You did not go alone.

Although your life..... And the way you believed....
Very few people understood....
But I for one knew you....So...
You did not make your last journey all alone.

The peace-maker you were, will forever hold it's memory ....
In my forgive thy fellow neighbor...
To you... this was our earthly part.

A part of me died with you..
As you left this earthly place...
But I know a smile awaited you...
As you parted those pearly gates.

Daddy...I will always love and miss you...
Though a delayed reaction I had to your death...
But...I guess it's God way of sheltering us....
Through things we cannot accept.

Now....I pray you rest in peace....
It's been two years that you have been gone...
Your family, friends, and loved ones....
One day will join you at  the right hand....
Of  our Creator's Throne.

        As I have said....A part of me.....
         Went with you....
         You did not leave all alone.
                       Your loving Daughter,

Aunt Beryl, Your Last Journey

Now your struggles are ended,
Of body and mind.
May your battles be remembered, 
With our passing time.

For years you had suffered,
Pain capturing your will,
Destroying all promises,
Of the day you would be healed.

We' re shared precious moments,
And at time revealing our fears,
We talked of those days we'd,
Soon be over the hill.

I felt in your footsteps,
And saw you in mine,
Those times we discussed,
Your life with pain,
And I with mine.

I've thought of you often,
And even at times did shed a tear,
I had ask our Creator to look upon you,
As "special" and let your remaining days,
Be free of all your pains and fears.

You told me of some good times,
And even shared some of your blues,
I've seen the tracks of loneliness,
Thru a blinded tear or two.

We both knew our days were not forever,
And our stories would have to end.
I'll cherish those times we opened our hearts,
And in sharing our pains,
We both found a friend.

Your body and spirit are parted now,
Each going their own seperate way,
A journey I think you welcomed,
After so many darken days.

Friends, as well as loved ones,
Knew of your kindness within,
We now mourn for your departure,
For life's battle, you did not win.

Now your body free of pain at last,
Now peace will live with you forever,
In that bright glorious land.

Remember?  I told you of a tunnel?
Not to far away from here?
And that bright light was waiting...
And what peace you would find within.

Now you know I have been there,
For before you it all appears,
Just as I told you,
The bright light will dry your tears.

Now I know not of this other world you are in,
I only know of the journey,
Of which you have been.

When you reunited with our Maker,
I know your final home you found,
May God walk with you,
As you explore those Heavenly grounds.

Aunt Beryl I will miss you,
And think of you often....
YOU know I realized THEY were real,
And would some day separate your body from your soul.

Close your eyes and welcome your sweet rest,
For time is of no more.

Your loved ones all gathered,
With sorrow showing about,
Unbound tears fell as soft raindrops, seeming as tho,
They wanted to shout.

 The flowers beautifully laid about you all aglow,
Your beauty giving inspiration,
As if for them to grow.

With life gone from your body,
And the spirit from your soul,
I now feel your story must be told.

Father- The Greatest Versatile Actor

Do you know how important the role of a father is?
Its as important as that of a mother.
Either in office or at home,
He is always able to manage it in one go.
The long years he spends and puts into his hard work,
Just for the betterment of himself and his family members.
As soon as his child in this devastating Earth is born,
A father becomes even more happy than a farmer seeing his harvested corn.
Its he who is always tensed about his child’s career,
Always running hither and thither for his/her luxurious future.
The golden values that he teaches
The great experiences that he shares,
Are the unique ones which can only be found 
From the speeches of one’s father.

He is the one, who invests the right money at right places,
Leave it not be for mutual funds and many other cases.
To build his nest and develop family for the best 
In order to secure his as well as his family’s future,
And so that they would never feel to be surpassed by others.
Just as a Santa Clause arrives to fulfill all the children’s dreams once a year,
A father acts like a Santa Clause for their whole life and protect them from all fear.
The luxurious facilities that he provide of his hard earned money,
Just in order to see a spark of smile on the face of his children and family.

Its often seen that a child idolizes his father,
Because of his great deeds and the way to inspire.
He always acts like a guiding force for his children,
Till the moment he satisfies himself that they have become maturates.
He is often seen to be a leader of his family,
Always saving and rescuing them from any difficulty.
Whenever his children demands for a new dress or shoes to wear,
He sees to it that their wishes are not left to be spared.

It’s the prime duty of his family members to follow all his decisions
May not be its right or wrong,
We always have to obey it all.
It’s the sincere request in the end from the core of my heart, 
To all the beloved children and fathers of the world’s cart.
Please maintain a good rapport forever,
As time and tide waits now or never.

My Garden

Three seeds were planted each in a special way. They were watered and 
nurtured and fed every day . As each one of them sprouted and began to grow,
I knew in my heart I could never let them go.

As my three flowers bloomed Oh to my suprize they were absolutly beatiful
and brought tears of joy to my eyes. Along with the seasons my flowers changed 
to  only to become more beatiful with every morning dew.

I knew in my heart one day they must go, and create there own garden 
for which it will be an honor to show. As the golden sun begins to set 
beatifully in the sky the moon begins to rise oh so very high.

My three beatiful flowers dance in the moon light eagerly awaiting the 
star lite night. Oh how my three beatiful flowers have grown but no matter 
what they do or how big they get my garden will be a place they can 
always call home.

A Remembrance Of You

a broken soul hidden in an empty home
wanted to leave, but there was no where to go
a mother's heart broken into two
wanted to stop the pain, but there was nothing anyone could do
a cold presence haunting this dried up place
needed to leave, but it would not be the same

there will always be a remembrance of you
a presence in every room
each door locked with a key
and i'm sure you'll remember me
and our family will miss you so
it was heart broken to see you go
and I'll miss you so much 
in heart is where you'll be
I'll be coming, so we can meet
because there will always be a remembrance of you
your death will not remain true
its been forever since you past away
until I see you, I will have nothing to say
there will always be a remembrance of you 
and everyone will love you
I'll remain faithful and true
there will always be a remembrance of you
a presence in every room
each door locked with a key
and i'm sure you'll remember me
because I will remember you
there will always be a remembrance left in each and every room
a remembrance of you

a burnt down home holding dirt in place 
i'm glad the angels came
for she was in so much pain
without her in our lives it won't be the same
I know I learned my lesson
never did think a fire could bring so much aggression

there will always be a remembrance of you
a presence in every room
each door locked with a key
and i'm sure you'll remember me
and your family will miss you so
it was heart broken to see you go
and I'll miss you so much
in my heart is where you'll be
I'll be coming, so we can meet
because there will always be a remembrance of you
your death will not remain true
its been forever since you past away
until I see you, I will have nothing to say
there will always be a remembrance of you 
and everyone will love you
I'll remain faithful and true
there will always be a remembrance of you
a presence in every room
each door locked with a key
and i'm sure you'll remember me
because I will remember you
there will always be a remembrance left in each and every room
a remembrance of you

i'm begging you to forgive me so
even though the fire took its deadly tole
and I won't let my heart pass you by
you are the apple of my eye
a cold spot in my heart
the reason I was torn apart
the reason I have no soul

there will always be a remembrance of you
a presence in every room
each door locked with a key
and i'm sure you'll remember me

Family Found

Lost in my love for you 
I find our daughter,
Starring into her eyes I see you 
Within her heart filled with joy
You see me,
Living within her dreams we both exist,
Her family that’s all she knows
A family we will forever be, 
You, our baby and me.

compare and contrast

Whether we where this or whether we where that. The girls that I’ve been with or the guys that you attract.

Any given problem have it known I got your back. I just hope that leaves it proven that a friend you’ll never lack.

Ever since I met you only good vibes you’ve been giving. You offered me your heart but mine you have been steeling. 

To get you gotta give that’s just called the cost of living. So if you need me scream my name as long as I’m still breathing.

It’s a shame that friendships die, so why not let this one last. Let’s keep trust and faith right here and let the time just slowly pass. 

If we agree or disagree it don’t matter its still a blast. And tell me that’s not perfect we compare and we contrast. 

The reason were this close is cause were different than the rest. We only speak straight up only real s**t we address. 

The special bond we have is the power we possess. Were examples for our peers and two symbols for the west.

Taking Pictures in the Rain

Would I look insane
If I took pictures in the rain?
My face would be…sponging wet 
My camera would be slippery I bet

Would I be in danger
If I took photos of a passerby and a stranger?
My reputation would probably be out of shape
My own skin would turn a odd shade…just like the clouds—covered by a foggy cape

It would be a whole new adventure
If I drive that damp road of cement…what would occur?
My uncertainty leads to a mysterious freeway…we are all along for the ride
We’ll still be together like some married couple—well, I’ll always stay by their side

Would we be in danger
If I took photos of this horrifying recollection?
Will it drive my dad to anger?
My safety is hanging on its last seat belt; I’ll never forget this risky exploration

Would I be the one to blame
If I took pictures of the rain’s appalling flame? 
My face is showered with bogging rain and blurred fog
My curiosity increases the rainstorm and I flash the driver to create a direction’s clog

Details | Cowboy | |


 He was just a stove-up old cowboy, 
Who only drank to ease the pain, 
And he really didn’t need it, 
Except when it was cold or gonna’ rain. 

He’d spent his life bull-ridin’ , 
Until he had that wreck, 
The bull threw him high, he came down hard, 
And busted his legs all to heck. 

He’d been my Daddy’s best friend,  
Up until the day my Daddy died, 
They rodeo’ed together, 
At the funeral, he cried. 

I’d see him every now and again, 
At one or another rodeo, 
He always had kind words for me, 
Acted like he hated to see me go. 

He gave me my first pony, 
And a saddle with a dally horn, 
They say he drove my  Mamma to town, 
The icy night that I was born. 

I heard he’d talk about me, 
And only had good things to say, 
He never told me to my face, 
But I knew that was just his way. 

It came as a surprise to me, 
When I heard that he was dead, 
I couldn’t forget the last time I saw him, 
Or the last thing he ever said... 

“I wish you’d been my own son, 
I’m proud to know ya’ as a man, 
I wanted to say ‘I love ya’, 
While I’m sober, and I can.” 

Then he turned and strode off, 
And his back seemed straight and strong, 
I’m not real sure, but I’d have sworn 
That limp of his was gone. 

So, on those nights when I’m alone,  
And hurt gets in my way, 
I think of him and the guts it took, 
To say what he had to say. 

And now, when I see an old Cowboy, 
A little drunk and broken down, 
I stop and listen to the stories he tells, 
‘Cause I know he’s been around. 

And Somewhere, Jake is bull-ridin’, 
Hittin’ in the eighties on every ride, 
Young , and Free, and Wild again, 
In that place, called The Other Side.

For Chris

My heart flutters inside my chest
like a blood red butterfly
frantically trapped in a wire cage
full of rage
knowing its life span is short
Houston, we have a problem,
mission abort.

Crush the butterfly in your trembling hand,
blood soaked sand
under your feet
the secret you cannot dare repeat,
iron fist to stem the weakling's tremors,
do you remember?

'Cause the porch hammock of childhood
has long rotted away
and the day
the day
you'll never forget,
unable to wipe the images from your mind
after all this time

Still fresh and vibrant as you roll over,
the seventeenth of October
the day that time ended for you,
lips turning blue,
relive it every time you're not distracted,
ambushed and attacked it
blinds you to life

and then he took a knife
and you know it will never end
its part of your being
warping all feeling
and you understand completely
what drove him mad

and it's so sad
that genetically he was more like 
you than any other,
my brother,
my brother.

It's the end of the line now.
No more feeling.
     No more wishing
               that I could be
     your perfect little girl
all over again.
No more dreaming.
     no more hoping
          that I would turn out to be
     a daughter you'll be
proud of.
No more thinking
     that everything's gonna change
          and go back
     to the way things were
it's not.
I'm putting up my walls again
     to disappear from view
          to block out the world
               to pretend I'm not here
          'cause it's so much easier
     than trying to feel everything.
'Cause I don't wanna be

The Meaning Of A friend

   The Meaning Of A friend

His old hands were cracked, weathered, and worn.
   His clothes were so ragged, filthy, and torn.
His old grey hair was unkempt, and in bad need of a comb.
   And I knew without a doubt, that it had been awhile since, this old gentlemen 
had known the comforts of a home.
 I stood in the shadows watching him with sadness and with awe.
   And I thought how much he favored my own grey headed old paw.
Well I watched as he picked up a discarded sack, containing food scraps and an 
empty soda can.
   And I thought to myself how degrading, what hunger can do to a man.
My mind started wandering what could have sunk him to this low.
   I couldn’t take it any longer I guess I just had to know.
As I walked up to him I could see the loneliness in his sad old face.
   And I wondered how long had it been since anyone had showed to him a little 
kindness, mercy, or grace.
I said mister I’m a friend if you’ll allow me to be.
   I’ve got a spare room I think will fit you it even has a key.
I’ve got plenty of food to share I told him, and that I was quite lonely living there.
   He looked at me and nodded, I think he said a prayer.
Well we shared that winter together he truly was such a delight.
    He sat and told me stories as we would talk late into the night.
He told what had happened, and that he had simply given up.
   How he’d lost his wife to cancer, I saw a tear fall to his cup.
As we stood there fixing to part ways, he said son you’ve truly been my friend.
   He said I hope we can keep in touch, let’s not let this be the end.
He said I think I’m going to see my girl, let her know I’m still alive.
   She had just had a little girl and I think she would be five.
Adios and God be with you and he walked out of the room.
   A tear ran down my cheek as I thought how we first met, and from that sack of 
scraps how this wonderful friendship it did bloom.
And I wondered was I placed there just for him, or just maybe he was placed 
there just for me.
   I don’t know but I thank God anyway, and that’s how this story ends with a new 
beginning for all to see.

Blessing Was A Little Girl

She's beautiful in everyway that beauty can be
She capture your heart with a smile that you must see
Pretty , thin , black head full of hair
When she talk or sing a riddle she capture your full attention
with a stare
So much energy but , she's full of joy
Blessing's was a little girl even though every dad would wish
upon a boy
Her conversation is full even though know one understands 
what she may say
Good health and a bright future for her i pray
It's a smile when i knock and she greets me at her parents door
She's my beautiful niece her name is Sydni Patrice Moore

' Warriors ... The Battle Cry Song ... '

There Are Sounds of Ancient Thunders
There Are Sounds of Ancient Drummers
        Calling … Brave Warriors
         Gladiators and Warriors

And They’re Marching To The Cadence of Their Hearts’ Pounding
Marching, To The Cadence of The World’s Rage Resounding
They’re Going By The Beat of Their Heart’s Pumping
By The Steady Flow of Blood and Bloodlust, Tells Me Somethin’

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …


But, We’ve Seen These Men, Playing With Their Children
We’ve Seen These Sons and Their Laughter, I’m Hearing
We’ve Seen These Men, Loving Their Babies
And Tenderly Holding and Kissing Their Ladies

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From Warriors … When They Die

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

Sticks and Stones, Swords, Arrows and Bombs
Lances, Knives, Hand to Hand Combat, Napalm
God Almighty, Oh, Thy Kingdom Come
Please Rescue Us, From The Kingdom of The Gun …

And Prophecy Is Marching – Listen, All Who Arms Bear
Warriors, Must Beat War Weapons Into Plowshares            ( Isa. 2: 4 )
And When War, Is No More, Then We Will Hear
All Warriors’ Battle Cry, Will Be An Amen Cheer !

              … Gentle Warriors …
            Peace-Loving, Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From A Warrior’s … Last ‘ Why ? ’

                … Warriors …
           Courageous Warriors …

How Can Flesh and Blood, Mortal-Men, Be So Fearless, I Wonder
Are They Strengthened By Duty, Love and Honor
Facing Danger, Death and Being Torn Asunder
Sacrificing All, As A Fallen Soldier …

                 … Warrior …
           Courageous Warrior …

Reach Out (You Can!)

Reach out and touch someone’s hand.
This will make the world a better place.
You can!

Reach out and help someone’s life plan.
This will help you find your life’s purpose.
You can!

Reach out and leave the surface of your home.
This will make you well-known.
You can!

Reach out and touch someone’s hand.
This will make the world a better place.
You can!

Public Standerns

Is a tree wrong because it leans?

Or is a tree wrong because it is not green


So you tell me what co lour it’s suppose

Too be?


We have to walk in a way talk in a way

Head up high and back straight 

Don’t smile to hard cause your not

Really awake being under the 

Spell of what the government has

To make 


Oh look his shining but really inside his



In a circle of a family everyone has

To be as one you try to step out 

And you’re classed as wrong 


Say too much and you’re classed 

As mad and you need to be locked up

But insert of them giving you an ear 

They per fur to give you a glair 


See a man with a new whip 

Insert of asking where he got it you

Per fur to BANG! 

And that it!


That’s it not just for him but

For his mum and the woman that

Is carrying his unborn son 


In roots, when kuntaka heard

The sounds of the drum he don’t run to


He stays with his family and he had to be strong

But in god he prayed that one day his family will 

See a better day 


Family is a community!


So let us all have a dream that one day are

Community could be clean


Clean of the guns and the drugs 

That’s killing us one by one 


So I pray for each and every one is soul 

So god could make us all whole 

And let are feelings just roll


Because you’re not pulling does’t mean 

That you’re not killing us one by one 


So when we see each other lets

Us be nice and greet your neighbor with a smile 

And let god just shine!

God's Power

The force of the nature takes over.
What can we the people do better,
Than just obey and Surrender?

God’s power is just as the space.
It is but a celestial act of grace
That travels beyond the airspace.

God’s promises are unlimited
They can never be erased,
Nor can they be replaced.

My brother, Wismith Thermidor
Is hastening to get into the store
He’s just one step away from the door.

Now, it’s up to you to save your family,
To retain “today” from being a page in History
Otherwise, they’ll be stuck in your memory!

I'm in love with a man

I’m in love with a man
Who treats me wrong.
He lies and cheats, but I just
Can’t leave him alone.

He’s the father of my two kids
And I don’t want to lose him.
People tell me all the time that
It’s time to leave him.

I’m in love with a man
Who don’t love me. I’m just
Sex and a person who gives
Him everything.

He’s calling you home now
To see the friends you love 
From the mountains so wide 
It’s now the beginning of life 

So remove yourself from you
And let your soul live on 
Don’t worry bout me 
I’ll see you on the other side

Oh Virginia, we see your smile now
From the heavens above
To the lands far below
So please wipe your fear away
Everything’s gonna be ok
Oh Virginia, we see your smile 

So you move on away
From the mountain to the valley 
Finding his gentle hand 
Guiding you all the way home

Oh sweet, sweet beautiful you
The time is nearly here
I will find myself a path 
For you to one day be proud 

Oh Virginia, we see your smile now
From the heavens above
To the lands far below
So please wipe your fear away
Everything’s gonna be ok
Oh Virginia, we see your smile

Oh Virginia, we see your smile now
From the heavens above
To the lands far below
So please wipe your fear away
Everything’s gonna be ok
Oh Virginia, we see your smile

Promises Promises

I pulled into the driveway and turned the engine off
I sat there for a moment and looked at our darkened house
Sighing to myself about another long hard day 
Wondering if its worth it as my family slips away
I make it to the kitchen to pour a glass of milk  
And right there on the fridge is a note that you had left

You waited all night long, then you finally went to sleep
Dinner is on the oven, warm it up before you eat
The list is on the counter for tomorrow and our plans
Just please don’t promise me you’ll make it, 
If you can’t I understand
I understand that you are busy, it’s ok . I’ll go alone
Please keep your broken promises unspoken from now on

Promises, promises
You’ve heard it all before
Promises, promises
They’ve shattered like thin glass
Promises, promises
Baby, I want your whole trust back

This breaking feeling in my heart makes me hang my head in pain
You’ve lived with broken promises, when did I become this man
I go into the bedroom and kneel down next to you,  
My body trembles, cuz I am scared with the fear of losing you
The dried tears upon your pillow are proof of a breaking heart
There and then I vow a promise no more tears from the lonely dark
Promises, promises
You’ve heard it all before
Promises, promises
They’ve shattered like thin glass
Promises, promises
Baby, I want your whole trust back

I’ll surprise you in the morning, I won’t be walking out the door
Baby, I’m making promises I won’t be breaking anymore
I promise to take you fishin’,out on the old boat, if it still floats
Or we could go hiking in the mountains,dust off the backpack
and patch the holes
Time will be on our side darling, just the two of us and the breeze
This is a lifetime promise and one I vow to forever keep

Promises, promises
You’ve heard it all before
Promises, promises
I won’t be walking out the door
Promises, promises
I won’t be breaking anymore

They had a baby on the way
He’d definitely miss the delivery,
Most likely the 1st birthday
He knows that she’s a fighter
She’d have to do this one on her own
He was leaving to fight a war, flying out today
He’d call her when he could,
He would write her everyday ,
But most of all he’d pray to God
That if anything -  
she’d  be forever safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

The letters, they kept arriving
They made her laugh and cry and weep
She’d read each one again out loud 
Every night before she’d  sleep
Then there’d be a note just for the baby
Words of love sent from his daddy
Telling him one day soon,
Soon,  they would meet
After each letter she’d kneel and pray,
To God and the Heavens above 
Please God,  if anything, 
please keep him safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

He shouted words of love and encouragement
Through a static phone line that was fading out, 
He could hardly hear, with the explosions all around
She cursed him like a sailor ,
She pushed while screaming out his name
He said, I know that you’re  a fighter
Fight now and give him life
In the heartbeat of a second, 
The world went silent - all around
No more static on the phone line and
He heard the new life of his son cry out

A son and a soldier cried  together
A mother and a wife was in between
She said, my nose, your eyes
And he’s a fighter like his daddy
So, fight and come home, there’s someone you gotta meet
Just promise me,  you’ll keep yourself – safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

Ms. Annie (Dedicated to all Grandmother's)

All of the world was new to me, I would not know what life would bring to me,but I 
would come to know one of the GOD'S angels from my birth to many years later 
you would not only walk me from being a young lady,But play a hand into my 
becoming a woman,you gave so much of your love never letting on that the years 
were catching up with you,you stayed with me til the end were you once took care 
of me,we now looked after you,I miss those day's of talks and smoochies being 
shared by our generation,I long to come home from the rat race to being at peace 
around you,you could alway's bring a calmness to the house with your private 
talks with GOD,you had the only line to him,you would alway's talk and sing the 
praise of your man,I know now he is happy to have his lady by his side to serve 
with him.

What I Call Home

Brought in close by those I love,
     during greatest times of need.
Home is not a place, but a feeling.
Surrounded by tender family and good
    friends, even if far apart.
I am comforted by their love.
Strengthened by the peacefulness.
A resting place from the turmoil of worlds.
That is what I call home.

The other Man

It seems her heart is sectional
and the piece she's given me to hold 
is only one of three
and though I know I'll never mean 
more than one and two
I'm happy to be as close as I am to you

and in the eyes of the other man
I can see her reflection 
smiling as he smiles
of my acceptance

I can't deny how good it'd feel
to be the holder of all three
but share your heart with them I will
cause I'm just glad to be
one of three
and though I know I'll never mean
more than one and two
I'm happy to be as close as I am to you

and in the eyes of the other man
I hope he sees her reflection
and smiles as she smiles
of my acceptance

It'll take time to be more 
than just another man 
to the other man 
but I pray someday I'll be,
more than just the other man 
as we become a family
'cause though I know I'll never mean
more than one and two
I'm just happy to be as close as I am to you

Her Love,

These last two poems are in honor of Mrs. Annie L. Darden who I only got to 
know briefly but shared her love and life with me as if I was her own.

When I look at you,I see all the wisdom of ages before me,When I look into your 
face,I see all that you have done for your family,When I hold your hands I feel all 
the years of work in the fields that went into those hands to clothe us,When I look 
at your feet,I see the long walks you took out in the plantation to feed us,When I 
look into your heart,I see the unconditinal love,warmth and passion that you have 
for your family,But when I stand back and see you,I see a young woman just 
starting out her life,graciously with love for GOD and her family.

And When You Get to Heaven, Don't Wait Up

Just one more day to be saint
One more high and a new complaint
One more day to know my life is over

One more day to relive to this moment
Just one more hour while my mind is absent
One more day to redefine sober

She sings to me it’s my decision
Altar to my vision
Breathe and sigh over you
Breathe and say

From dust to blood
No one wants to live forever
From blood to dust
Eternity is now or never

Just a day to refine my nervous
Wondering how they’ll forgive my lovers
One more day to die and then it’s over

Another year and I’ll be a servant
Singing hymns and hating others
Woke up and I won’t lie sober

She’s seen through my kind 
And I know a later time 
We could see another you
Still I sing

From dust to blood
No one wants to live forever
From blood to dust
Eternity is now or never

Just today I began to suffer
Wondering why I ever bothered
Sleeping with the guilt, I know it’s over

One more year and I’d be a saint
Procrastinated son to pain
Hang around till the hangover is sober

He saw through me and mine 
I’ve never known a better time
That’s that to you and you 
Leave the soul 

From dust to blood
No one wants to live forever
From blood to dust
Eternity is now or never

Unforgotten -2-

I've captured you from death's snare,
While others were unaware
No more worrying,
You are unforgotten

You are alive
Others deny it and leave the truth behind
Well, I most certainly know...
I will not end up in ruin

Instead, I'll remain loyal to you
because you are an unforgotten memory that changed my cruel ways
Straightening up my choices,
leading me to an easing and most pleasing place

Well...I certainly know, without a doubt, you are unforgotten
in my memory and best of God's loving heart
You are forgiven in your trespassing mind that stumbles in repetitive sin 
You are an unforgotten cure to my throbbing pain
You're making me obsessive to you...sincerely insane

Though you're quite the catch 
in my sealed-up memory
You will remain
in a foolish mind 
fiddling around in flattering aspiration

You are unforgotten
In my flattered memory,
You are unforgotten 

You are a cure to my whole entire life,
unforgotten drug of mine

A Birthday Prayer

This birthday prayer I send to you,
I pray your day is grand.
May all that comes your way today,
Be touched by God's own hand.
I have you in my thoughts today,
don't think you're growing old.
For you're just getting better,
like fine wine, so I'm told.

Blood - Brothers

I Hear Drum-Beats Across The Land… Can You Hear It?
All Our Homes Are Handed Down by The Highest Spirit
Long-Ago, The Native Peoples of The Land
Knew… The Earth and Us – Go Hand in Hand

I Hear Hoof-Beats Across The Land… Can You Hear It?
Its Not The Buffalo or Antelope – Who Grew To Fear It
Its Battles of Braves and Soldiers – Both Grim Reapers
Can’t Forget… We ‘Are’ Our Brother’s Keeper…

         Blood – Brothers
… We Are Blood-Bound To Love
         Blood – Brothers
We Are Blood – Brothers Of
All Sons and Daughters of Mankind
The Great Spirit Binds…
      … Blood – Brothers

I Heard Hate – Beat Down The Land… Did You Hear It?
Pollution and Persecution… Its Time To Cure It
End Our Journey On The Trail of Tears
With Broken Arrows and Rivers – Running Clear

I Hear Heartbeats Across The Land… Can You Hear It?
If You Turn and Face The Wind… You Are Near It
It Pounds Deeper Than The Skin, Or A Flood
It Echoes To All …  Its In Our Blood !

        Blood – Brothers
… We Are Blood – Bound To Love
        Blood – Brothers
We Are Blood – Brothers Of

Keepers Of The Earth… Guard This Turf
        And Each Other
For Every Human Birth… Has Worth
         As A Blood – Brother

For Those Killed and Blood Spilled
         The Ground Cries
Soaks The Dust… And Curses Us
         When A Brother Dies…

Everlasting Arms

Verse 1

His charm
No harms

Don't be alarmed 
When your just resting 
Just resting in those

Everlasting arms

Verse 2

Now hold me tight
All through the night

for I wanna feel this delight
even when your out of my sight
for I'm leaning on those arms just slight

Just slight on those
everlasting arms

Verse 3

let me dream of this day
when you come and sweep me away

for I'll only say
this is how I want it to stay

In those
In those

everlasting arms
everlasting arms
Of our Lord's sway

My hero

You have been there for me
took care of me
when I was sick
you gave me soup and made sure
I stayed in bed
when there was no food
in the house
I came over and you fed me
you were there
through my troubles
you give me advice
I take it
I learn from you
your my hero
and I love you.

Beer Money, Wine Taste

If you could read my mind you'd know that I'd never talk
And if I could stretch a mile you'd know that I'd never walk
But I've got to get up to go to work to my nine to five
To keep the pace in this rat race I have to survive
But this minimum wage pay will never help me out Lord
So I need more cause I want more than I can afford

Cause all my friends are driving Benz's and wearing expensive clothes
With bigger houses and finer foods so this is my status in quo

I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
Can you see it in my eyes, its written on my face
Give me this, give me that and I don't want to wait
But I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
And uh~ beer money, and uh~ wine taste
Always make me wanna haste but that leads to waste
So I'm praying for some patience and little more grace
With my~ beer money and my~ wine taste         (Chorus)

But my money and my patience's short, the line is long 
And when things start looking right in life what's left is wrong
I need extra strength this and I need fast relief that
Someone call western union hurry cause I need some cash
To pay my debts and all my bills, I'm planning to buy a lot
Because I'm always wanting something that I just don't got

Cause all my friends are driving Benz's and wearing expensive clothes
With bigger houses and finer foods so this is my status in quo

I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
Can you see it in my eyes, its written on my face
Give me this, give me that and I don't want to wait
But I've got beer money, I've got wine taste
And uh~ beer money, and uh~ wine taste
Always make me wanna haste but that leads to waste
So I'm praying for some patience and little more grace
With my~ beer money and my~ wine taste         (Chorus)

I need designer hats and jeans,
A limousine on the scene
To keep up with the Jones;
I need some precious stones.
I want to be in the spotlight
In restaurants day and night
With the means to these ends nonstop;
I wanna be filthy rich so I can shop.

Where Do We Go From Here?

We don't mesh
Since we've been one flesh
We're never on good terms for long
As a matter of fact
One misheard word or act
Makes us conclude everything's wrong

And we don't click
Like the stones and sticks
That we've gathered from far and near
They've all been used
Now that we're battered and bruised
Where do we go from here...?

Why do we settle down
To settle for less or save face
By not waiting for true happiness?
Why do we put on a show
And act funny with each other,
Yet neither of us is laughing yet?

And why do we get confident
Seeing our strength and beauty,
Finally, from the words of a stranger?
And why do we stay together
While pushing ourselves apart?
Without mutual love we're in danger.

(Excerpts from the song Where Do We Go From Here?)

A Sweetheart, That’s Somewhere Far Away
Who, Sends A Message… To This Hillside Clover…

There sits Mama old and gray,
Rocking, rocking night and day,
Her life was always full and gay,
Till that day, Pa went away.


Time was when she was so young,
Raven haired and full of fun,
Many a beau would come to call,
But her heart she gave to Pa.

She would flirt and tease them all,
Wear her shoes out at a ball,
Pa just stood there with a grin,
Some how he knew, she'd marry him.

Their life began on a bright sunny day,
In a little church in I-o-way,
They packed their things, joined a wagon train,
And headed west to the open plain.

They didn't have much, like most folks then,
A change of clothes and a couple ol' hens,
Some pots and pans and a hog or two,
And Pa's big stallion called Ol' Blue.

Ma road the wagon and helped Mrs. Green,
Pa helped Fred with the cattle and things,
When evening came and chores were through,
Ma'd help Pa brush down Ol' Blue.

They couldn't travel very fast,
But Pa and Ma made each day last,
Every minute of every day,
Seemed a treasure to store away.

They went through snow, rain and sand,
Until they reached, Dakota Land,
Some how in their hearts they knew,
Here at last, their journey was through.

They took the land the law allowed,
Built a sod house and small corral,
And as their family grew and grew,
More land, was added too.

It was a struggle, you can bet,
To raise a family on just plain sweat,
When evening came and supper et,
From the Bible Papa read.

Through Indian raids and summer drought,
When Prairie fires burned them out,
Buffalo stampedes and winter's freeze,
Pa and Ma'd be on their knees.

They taught us the laws of God and man,
No finer couple, in the land,
They were always there at beckon call,
To take our hand lest we should fall.

No matter what hardships or trails they knew,
Together, they did see them through,
And for 68 years this proved true,
As their home on the prairie, grew and grew.

It breaks my heart to see Mama there,
Sitting in her rocking chair,
She's just waiting till the angels call,
To take her home to be with Pa.

I Just Gotta Tell You

I just gotta tell you 
about this man I know

How He follows me around
where ever I go

I don't even mind much
cause I love Him so

This is how
my story goes

Once I was lost
but then was found

His voice that of an angel
Lifts me from the chains of hell

I know He'll alway's be right by my side
Even if I'd gone off and have died

I give thanks to the Lord above
Wishing I could ride on His winged doves

I'd shout from His highest mountains
And tell it to the world over and over again

How much this guy means to me so
As I etched His name across the snow

Jesus Is the only one for me
Once you feel His love too 
you'll surely agree

A Parent's Advise

Chase down your destiny
Run down your desire
Teach your heart to hope a little
Teach your brain to cope a lot

Teach yourself to love a little
But don't be to vulnerable
Teach yourself to trust a little 
Teach yourself to pray a lot

I won't always be there to hold your hand
I can only take you so far
But I know one thing for damn sure
I'll be there to watch you walk

Waiting on life

Living within my mind I play with myself
Remembering games I once knew as I boy,
I play
Innocents revealed and with an open heart,
I play
Ignorant to life, I was a boy
Family lost, I was just a boy
Full of dreams, I was a boy
Forced into life I became a man
Without a family I learned to stand
Left in life all alone
My true path was never shown
my life until further notice...
Is to be postponed…

Soul Womb / The Guf

Not remembering you in joy 
how had this come to be?
No memories of you content,
no happiness to see.

No happiness for your whole life
though plenty filled your plate.
Bards filled your mind at early age
with beauty on the page.

The home you had was pin cushion small
pincushion small, it pricked
with a violent soul rent from the Guf
raw poverty , rent and licked.

While violets held the windowsills
and mother’s soul was sweet
denial visited much too oft
father’s drunken anger did compete 

Longfellow laced your nascent mind
The Children’s Hour your treat.
You escaped to Edgar’s house
The Raven at your feet.

You read to me from Golden Books
of Joseph’s many colored coat.
Mother goose set the dreamscape
as Nod rowed by in boats.

I know this must have happened oft
yet no memory do I retain.
Just the lilt of longing reciting
of others happiness on the page.

May the Guf be kind to you
and return you full of joy.
May the sparrow find for you
a kinder living story.

Details | Lyric | |


You know that you are living, with the sun upon your face....
And as you feel all the love, within his sweet embrace,
You know that you are living, as your eyes meet from afar...
as he puts his lips to yours, and all you see is stars,
You know that you are living, when its time for him to go....
Realizing just before he leaves, you already miss him so,
You know that you are living, with all the years gone by....
The struggles all along the way, were worth all the tries,
WE KNEW THAT WE WERE LIVING, as the years have turned us grey...
We would not change a single thing, not one single day!

Unknown Thoughts

     So much goes through my mind
From death, love to hate and pain.
Not sure if it's all about me
Or if it's just simply the way i see it

     I can't help but think of the past.
All the heartbreaks, all the family issues
That I’ve had in the past. 
I don't know what to do or how to act

     With my Father never there and stuck with mom
Always disappointing the family with all of my problems
Having disabilities that interfere with my life
Been going to therapy since I was three

     Now I’m older, and yet still have problems
I have a dad that's always there and doesn't act like a jackass
My life doesn't seem as hard

       Though it is, and now I’m in high school
The hard times have just begun
Yet from all the hard things I’ve faced in life
They only make me stronger

      No pain ever hurts me for I’ve felt it all
From feeling worthless and good for nothing
To being heartbroken and out of place
Lost and unforgiving 
To hate and love 
And pain and pleasure
I felt it all
But what now?

Ring Around The Pumpkin

For the bounty of the earth
Come Ye thankful people come
For it is Autumn
And the leaves are coming down
Run run sweet John Barley Corn
Let's play ring around the pumpkin
As the harvest moon shines
On the jingle jangle scarecrow
For I'am just a little acorn
Bounded for another harvest home
As the wind shakes the barley
Like a slow Thanksgiving waltz
For our farmers sets the table
To a wondrous haymakers hoedown
For we bid ado to a Shokan's fairwell
And now thank we to all our God

Happy Harvest Time To All

Maniacs confession

As I stare down the barrel of my gun
I watch the children play
Thoughts of the devil fill my mind
As I Watch the crowd, 
I slowly take aim
Him or her it really doesn’t matter for they are all the same
Slowly the hate consumes all that I am
Then finally with rifle in hand…
I shoot…
Murdering my very existence and all that I am
I shoot… 
Instantly taking away the pain
Realizing I may have gone insane, 
I then reload…
Voices guiding my every action
With closed eyes and without reaction
I take aim…
Targeting the voices in my mind
I take aim… 
Without thought or a clear shot I squeeze…
Suddenly the smell of the ocean takes over me,
White sand beaches and an island breeze
Reaching into the heavens I drop to my knees
Thank you god for sparring me
For it was not me but the devil you see
And in your debt I will forever be, 
For I am gods only forgotten son
And finally my salvation has begun…

Tears of sadness filling the air
Broken heart and nobody cares
Look at me and all you’ve done

Never answered stay my prayers
Oh how life is unfair.

As I lie down to sleep,
I am praying to the Lord.
I am praying that my grandma knows,
That her life is worth living for.
Will you help my grandma?
Please help her understand,
That anything I do or say,
Is because I want to be that helping hand.
I love my grandma very much.
And I know that she knows I do.
Just help me Lord one more time.
Help me bring her closer to you.
I am asking this of you,
One time again.
And in your name I pray.

Walking In Graceland

I'm moving up to graceland
you know that mansion over the hilltop
to have just a little talk with jesus
for I don't knock upon his doors
for I know the gates swing open
how great thou art
that we're blessed
in the wonderful grace of jesus
for it's written in red
as I was made a christian
and saw the light while
strolling down beulual lane
out in the sunshine
dear father in heaven
we all can do good
something beautiful
even a whispering hope
sitting down by the old rugged cross
take my hand
precious lord
don't leave me crying in the chapel
move me to your higher ground
crossing the river of jordan
fill my cup lord
to let me rise again
for without you I haven't got a prayer
so please take me as I am jesus
for I'll remain tried and true
for I know there's somebody bigger than you or I
in this wonderment of thy amazing grace

When will it be my turn.,to have a living life? Sometimes i sit and wonder, if it will 
be when i die...everyday i sit here,  sad and all everyone i care about, 
Have they just forgotten ME!, I AM REALLY HERE....!Do they even notice that I cry 
so many tears? I wish I really knew this,why my breaths always at risk..,when all 
it is ,i want or need, simply is just this......
Just to talk, or play a game, a minute of your time...I miss living LIFE so much, 
and being LEFT BEHIND...
Am I just a burden,or simply in tier way?,I hope and pray they never find 
themselves JUST like me someday!!!!!!

Lord, I Need Help

I want to be right.
I want to be more like you Christ.
I want to love all mankind,
With all my might.
I want to spread the gospel,
In and out of season.
I want to teach all nations,
That you are the reason,
For all creatures breathing,
And with you goals,
We'll be achieving.

Lord, I need your help.
Some days are rough,
And I don't feel like believing.
On those days, I remember
That you did something for all mankind,
That you did not have to do,
You died for something,
That you did not do sin
And that all life will never end.

I want to be right.
I want to be more like you Christ.
I want to love all mankind,

I want to spread the gospel,

Have a Merry Christmas

Have a merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
May this very Christmas
Be filled with holiday cheer
Let everyday be Christmas
For the rest of the year
And have a merry Christmas
Filled with holiday cheer  (Chorus)

To all of those we know, to all of those we love
To those we have seen grow and like to kiss and hug
To our new family members and old familiar friends
Attached to the presents, written in the cards we send

Season's greetings and warm wishes with so much care
And good tidings of great joy I bring in this little prayer


To all those you'll see and to those who'll pass by you 
To all those you'll meet and to those you'll say "Hi" to
Acquaintances and strangers, the homeless and shut in
Remember them like family and treat them like your friends

Give them season's greetings, warm wishes with so much care
And gold tidings of great joy bring to them in this little prayer

But do not let it end, live a life of love and cheer
In and out of season share it in the New Year

Forgotten Son~ Evil~

As I cut your throat 
Blood covering my hands 
I feel your life draining,
Your very existence given unto me
As your dreams drip from my finger tips 
You slowly fade…
Pictures of your family fill your eyes
As you slowly come to your demise
I will forget all I have done
Escaping into the darkness 
I am god’s only forgotten son~

A Place in the Heart

"Where is this place they call The West?”,  
   a stranger asked of me;  
“Where does it begin, where does it end,  
   where are the boundaries?"  
I gave this question lots of thought,  
   I considered it quite carefully;  
For everything from the Atlantic coast is West,  
   all the way to the Pacific sea.  
Cowboy is a often an mis-used term,  
   open to interpretation,  
And so it is, with The West,  
   it becomes a generalization.  
The answer seemed too simple,  
   though it gave me cause to ponder;  
The ways and life of the Cowboy  
   and how he is bound to wander.  
I smiled as I gave my answer,  
   and please don't think it odd,  
But the words I spoke, I truly believe,  
   were given to me by God.  
"Everyone has a different definition,  
   and no single one is right;  
It's like trying to define the Universe,  
   or freedom or faith or sunlight.  
The West is like the sky above,  
   endless and wrapped around us all;  
It's anywhere there's the soul of man,  
   or the sound of this Earth's call.  
It's the place where we're going,  
   all the places we have been,  
The past, the present and the future;  
   where-ever you find a friend.  
Where is The West?  
   You're standing there;  
It's no one location,  
   it's everywhere.  
It's no place in particular,  
   it's anywhere living is an art;  
It's any place a Cowboy is,  
   it's A Place in the Heart."

Undeniably Blessed

she never ever disappeared
e'en in those lonely years
when childhood trauma spewed up fears
inheritedly ghastly.

she wrote notes gifted, answered phone
no matter what was goin' on
the night my mind was nearly blown
she lent licorice care.

Iridescent to the max
bffl and that's a fact
(remember sharing stolen snacks?)
my sister, Rach, I love you.

Unknown blessing~

Making love to you slowly at first, 
Then busting into passion 
I fill you with my thoughts and dreams
You slowly open as I touch your soul,
We shall forever share this moment in time 
Even if you are never mine, we shall forever be
I loved you even before I entered your world
I dreamed about your lips pressed against mine,
As you starred into my eyes, 
We saw our daughter..
Unaware of our blessing at the moment
We let people stand between us…
We took a chance on life
Never looking back, 
We still took a chance,
Blessed with the greatest part of our lives
We finally meet her,
Starring into her eyes it all suddenly became clear
Our hearts were finally sincere…
As we gently kissed her face.
Such a sweet angel face,
The pain in our lives shall forever be replaced.

Thank You

Thank you for sticking by me
Even when I told you not to.
Thank you for always loving me,
No matter what crazy things I would do.

Thank you for having faith in me,
Even if I didn't deserve it.
Thank  you for giving me your time
When sometimes, I know it wasn't worth it.

Thank you for enlightening me with your wisdom,
When at times I didn't want it at all.
Thank you for keeping me up,
Because if you hadn't, I 'd have no choice but to fall.

Thank you for helping me mature, 
I am no longer a young girl.
Thank you for being my mother,
You are my life, my light, my world.

Unbroken Pieces of My Heart

Verse 1:  I tried to  fix  the  pieces  of my  broken  heart/ Yet  over  the  years / 
Things  still fell apart/ Myfragile  heart can't  go on  without  you  in  my life/ 
Everything  that  was  wrong i  tried  to make  right/

Bridge : Now  our  love is  gone / Now  i  can't  go  on cause  all i  do is  cry/ 
I  cried/

Chorus: You  were  the  one  who  made  me  happy/ You  were  the one  who  
made  me  smile/ You were the  one  who  was  always there  for  me / There's  
no  need  to say  words  unspoken/ Because  my  heart was  already unbroken/

Verse 2: After  all the crying  things  still didn't  sem  to  matter  between you  and  
me / When  we  first  kissed  you  told  me that you  cared/ After  your  lies the  
truth came  out  throughout  the years/ All this  time  i  was good  to  you yet  you  
made  me  feel so  blue/ You said  you  would  change  yet  you remained  the  
same /

Dad's Cold Heart

You had to make this
heart of mine angry
before you die.

You left me bitter
this tired, cold heart
of mine.

I once loved you
but you turned me away.
The words you send leave
me discouraged.
At one time, I felt you
was my only friend.

How can you turn a
daughter away when
she loves you so much
even when it rains
everything is beautiful
because of your soul.

I am tired and weak.
I suffer every night.
Can I not be perfect?
You try to bring me
down and this heart
is turning black.
One day when you are
put to rest in the grave
will I shed a tear?
Of course I will and
the sun will still shine
because I always loved

Details | Rhyme | |


I never cry real tears
When I die, it confirmed my fears
Lying on the slab, dissect my mind
Shred me to bits, at least you were kind

Why do you see something in nothing?
With this pill I crown you king

Back to your childhood
I witness the lies when I could
Fell into sleep and never stir
Prisoner to my every word

I can't even stand on this crutch
The homicide still twists in my gut
I noticed that you locked the door
This tragedy is too much to ignore

Why do you see something in nothing?
With this pill I crown you king

Back to your childhood
I witness the lies when I could
Fell into sleep and never stir
Prisoner to my every word

My time is coming a close
All the while, obsession grows
Was a martyr, I can never tell
Report back tomorrow, I've spent my time in hell

Why do you see something in nothing?
With this pill I crown you king

Back to your childhood
I witness the lies when I could
Fell into sleep and never stir
Prisoner to my every word

I live in my childhood 
A prisoner to my words

We once were together as one

We once were together as one

So tell me now where did you go
That dark night of sorrow and of plight
Your heart for me you left behind
Passing with harrow harsh pain

So deep inside a cold blade does twist
Did my blood cause your flight
Your heart from me you took away
Departing in haste, a hallow agony

We once were one, far from all fear
Then walked with cheer through trouble always near
My heart was yours, you left anyway
Vanished in heated hot blood boiling

But back you came, together again
Two travelers in a strange lit dream
Our hearts no claim, one just the same
Embarked in hope, hurling through some unrequited life

Details | Lyric | |

There is Me

The troubles that lay
No one person wishes to see
Look further than the broken smiles 
Inside this bitter end
There is me

Lost children dance on hollow graves
No longer are we free
Spirits calm inside tired souls
Monday through Thursday
There is me

A mask concealing all that is honest 
Hidden deep within our Willow tree
A mistaken smile for the genetic branch 
Forsaken for our verbal bleed
There is me

A problem within society
Unwanted by birth, never carefree
Have hope my lost children
Broken dreams will not become forever
Someone is there
There is me

I'm Living On A Prayer

It’s hard out here,
I swear.
I don’t know where,
I’m headed,
My life is full of chances,
And people saying and,
Acting out to me, 
I dare.
Often at times,
 I’m scared.

I get constant messages
That you are God’s child
Don’t let them people drive you wild
I get constant statements
That I’m praying for you.
It’s hard out here,
I swear.
I don’t know where,
I’m headed,
My life is full of chances,
And people saying and,
Acting out to me, 
I dare.
Often at times,
 I’m scared.
My life is full of chances,
And people saying and,
Acting out to me, 
I dare.

I’m making it anyway
I’m glad to say
Even though I fear
Sometimes and cry a lot
I’m giving it all I got
I’m living,
Sometimes scared, 
I’m living on a prayer.

Go to the Ant

Go to the ant and learn (2x's)
Go to the ant, ant, ant
Go to the ant and learn-  (Chorus)

She digs her house down deep
She builds her house up high
And though she has no king
Her armies stay alive

In the summer she will reap
For the coming winter sky
She gathers everything
Her colonies survive


Consider all her ways
She's small but she expects
Her people stay as one
And she is strong and wise

So number all your days
Prepare for what comes next
And til everything is done
Let no sleep tempt your eyes

Go to the ant, ant, ant (3x's)
Go to the ant

O' Holy King

O' king of the world
give me words to speak
words I would say
and can't take away

our beautiful king
our king of the world

O' king of the world
I will rise
for there's no looking back
as the lost get found
when you encourage yourself

our beautiful king
our king of the world

O' king of the world
I give myself away
while I'm waiting just waiting
to follow you

our beautiful king
our king of the world

O' king of the world
I desire more
for there's a hole in my pocket
and it's justified

our beautiful king

Next 2 life

Categorize your life in intervals of seven
And you’re an old man 
Before you can make it to eleven
I nod off and nap for a minute or two
Step back into life with a senators view
No peace for me
Only wars in-depth of miserable moments 
Misery considerably an outlet if you can palm it
Take your emotions on a coast 
Rest next to the ocean, a scenery to calm it 
Yet I consume pints of liquor
Offer my flawed advice to couples as they bicker
Lights growing dim, candle wax melts and reforms
But there is no wicker
Imagine spending time apart
The coming back to be with her
Ale she grows
Consuming days without the snow
Who’s to dry her eyes
When love does fail to show

Here in this paradise next to life 
A place here on earth 

I’ve seen better moments just worst places
Vice versa
Lust, the tumor which consumes most faces
Purity next to innocence remains tasteless
Pull the roast, drop the pie
Watch as mother looks to pace her stress
Usually from nowhere I find myself running
But lately my shoes won’t lace for grace
Winter belongs to warmth
But we reach for may
Passenger seat at times we lay
And where do you go
When days are rumored with thoughts of
“I don’t know”
Focus is to maintain purpose in what you are pursuing
Despite the average mans ruling
In to the skies, clouds, I’m moving
Lost in a mirror of allure
Homesick in search of a cure
Leaves bristle, just a kiss of autumn
A gift given to the seekers whom sought them  

This place here on earth
A paradise next to life

About a World

Don't sin and cry to me
(I do)
I never promised to agree
(I do)
Smile, kill, rinse, repeat
(I do)
Spill the shells at our children's feet

You make it harder to
Lay down and die
Point the question at troubled skies

I do

I'm liking what I see
(I do)
Clean and civil sanity
(I do)
For best results, overdo
(I do)
Collapse and promise that you'll lose

You make it harder to
Lay down and die
Point the question at troubled skies

Don't sin and cry to me
(I do)
Blinded suitor always sees
(I do)
Smile, kill, rinse, repeat
(I do)
A fine institution, indeed

You make it harder to
Lay down and die
Point the question at troubled skies

Feburary is the nicest time of the year,
because you celebrate love and happy tears,
like birthdays and special annversity, 
you find out who love you alot,
or you have a bad ending,
it also a start of something new, 
then you find out things that are true,
you start to look different as you go,
but Feburary is not over,
just sit back and enjoy the show,
and have a nice Feburary,  
and take it slow.

To Our Young people

For all that life has given me nothing is more greater than being a mom,
that is the one thing in life that I cherish the most is to have been able to be a part 
of  your lives to get to know each of you as the indiviuals that you are,And to 
have had the chance to grow with you and see where your lives would take you 
has been the best trip I've enjoyed,I know there are still more rides to enjoy on 
this road and I hope we continue to share those rides together whether good or 
bad I wouldn't want to share the ride with anyone else beside me except 
you,alway's knowthat whether I'm near or far,my heart and love will alway's be 
with you,to remind you your never far from my mind or thee heart, you have truly 
rewarded me in so many ways that I will never be able to repay you for the joy's 
and the lessons you have taught me,I only hope that when I've left your side that 
you have enough of my love in you to be able to walk on with all that I have tried to 
pass on to you,may it be enough to keep your heart strong.When i'm  no longer 
there to hear the words you speak in person or by phone and when your mind 
starts to play games of the loss you feel,I only hope the heart will go on to pump 
the love I have for you thru your veins as a vessel of my love ,my mother had 
alway's let me know in words that I was loved but it's important to me that you be 
able to read this when you feel the need to be sure where my heart lies,we will 
never agree completely on alot of things but that will never stop the love that flows 
thru my heart,keep these words close to  your heart  and let them alway's echo 
as a reminder of what I feel for you,my children.


Details | Lyric | |


I wish that I could tell you how I feel,
and yet I still don't know if these feelings
are real.
You were supposed to be there as my father,
but I could never see myself as your lovely
little daughter.
I remember when you used to call every
weekend, But now it's like you never get
the messages that I send.
And now that you know you've broken my
heart, How's it feel to know that you've
ripped your daughter's life apart?
I hope you take seriously the pain that
you've caused, So maybe you will realize
what you once had you have now lost.
And now that I know that you don't want to
be bothered, It's really sad to know my
dearest Father.

What Lays Ahead

Lights out, no belief in the world but the people need someone to believe in!
Everybody's a hero in this world, even those who seem like true villains.
We all look up to someone no matter how old or how tall they are. It's our own soul that
leads us to be what we wanna be.
A Hero or a Villain only you decide what team you're going to play for.

Drugs tore my family apart but it gets worse.
My grandma's getting old, my sister lost custody over her kids, my grades are slippin' but
it's not because I'm a fraud hiding behind this confusing mist. Let's just call that
reason number two.
Do you wanna continue on this road? Or do you wanna see something different for a change?

You fell in love in sixth grade with this Peruvian eighth grader but you knew it wasn't
meant to be.
You kept on fighting, you kept on walking not knowing what's up ahead.
You followed His voice and you're still following it today.
But ask yourself one more I supposed to know what lays ahead?

Details | Lyric | |

Come take me

I want someone
to come take me away
from my house
I can't stay here
I can't deal
with my family
they stress me out
and don't believe me
when I tell them
I love someone
they don't understand
me or anything about me.

My parents are very different
my mom chose alcohol
over me and my brothers
my dad does everything he can
to feed me
and make sure I have a
roof over my head and a bed
to sleep in
I wish my mother would
get some help for her problem
but she says
she doesn't have a problem
she has been saying that
for 17 years now
she don't want anything
to do with my brothers and i
deep down everyone knows it.

Let Me Live

What would I do if I didn't get to see your gray hair anymore?
Your old age magnifies me it sends a needle through my door. 

When I was young, I didn't think people could ever grow old it makes you see 
how your mind leaves you lost without wrongs.
Digging through the ground I see bones, stretched out bodies, and I say a prayer 
to Heaven let their souls be eternal.

I lost the destroyed dream.
Why must we wake?
Why do we fall?
We all suffer and death takes us all.
Death is like a fake doll
looking for pain.

I looked in the mirror and saw
time in a glass frame.
I am drifting away 
and those gray hairs are fading fast.
All of Dad's lost days and his new bitter years to come.
Half of a glass to go and his age will leave me alone.

So I asked God tonight let me sleep again don't take my life.
I like seeing the sunset
and morning.
I am sure things are pretty up there but I have loved ones to soothe me here.

I want to live!
Free as a bird.
Pretty as the world.
Flying through this place we call earth from the first day of my birth.

New wings for me, torn.
Not another lost wing gone.
All around me aged thorns.
Years ahead and I love this life
let me live please.

Sitting Bull

The battle was over,
The Indian did dance,
He'd slaughtered the white man
At Custer's last stand.

He was now weary,
His days had been long,
His people were suffering,
It's time to go back home.


He had done what he thought was right,
To Keep his people free.
With General Miles up on his trail,
Again they must flee.

There was a land north of here,
Where they could be safe,
Once more he must move his people,
To a strange new place.

The the buffalo were gone,
The time had come to move,
Without the sturdy buffalo,
His people had no food. 

He surrendered at Fort Buford,
The white man they did dance,
They had the Mighty Sitting Bull,
Right here in their hands.

They send him to the reservation,
His head he held it high.
His people were his first concern,
Until the day he died.

From his home-made wooden rocker my dad beckoned with his hand, 
as his wasting frame would not allow the dying man to stand 
and he handed me two buttons, that were worn and on a chain, 
then he whispered of their origins while grimacing with pain. 
“These two buttons were my father’s lad and from a prison shirt 
that dad wore because he’d beat a man who’d treated him like dirt. 
He was placed in solitary and that added to his shame, 
so to stay sane in that darkness … well he played this little game. 
“He would throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and he’d search until he found them in his quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes he’d throw those two white buttons and they kept the poor man sane, 
till they finally released him and my dad came home again. 
“When I met your darling mother son I felt right from the start 
that this girl was something special and I knew deep in my heart 
that we’d marry and have family and son the dream came true, 
but it broke me when I lost her, after she gave birth to you. 
“Though I had you to remember her, I nearly lost my mind 
and I’d ask God in my darkened room why was life so unkind. 
But my dad came to the rescue and placed in my hand one day 
two white buttons and revealed to me a game he used to play. 
“Yes I’d throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and I’d search until I found them in my quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons and they somehow kept me sane 
till I found a little peace of mind and was your dad again. 
“Still we’ve shared a lot of years since then and son you’re now a man 
and I know you love your family and do the best you can. 
I do not have much to leave you just these worn out buttons lad 
and the knowledge that I loved you and was proud to be your dad.” 

Then his hand slumped off the rocker and dad’s spirit left that night 
and him lying there and free of pain was such a peaceful sight. 
Though at night I’d sit there in the dark, depressed and feeling blue, 
till I took to throwing buttons, just like my dad used to do.   
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and I’d search until I found them in my quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons and they somehow kept me sane 
and I thanked my dad and grandpa for those buttons on that chain.

Everything is Jolly

Everything is jolly
As we string the walls {with lights} 
And frolic in the snow
Everything is jolly
As we deck the halls {tonight}
With holly and mistletoe  (Chorus)

Oh, out in the snow
Along the sides of our little house
As the winter sun glowed
I put up the lights with my spouse
Then she said, "There he goes"
As I climbed to the top of the tree
To cut the mistletoe
She gathered it and sung along with me


Oh, out in the snow
Along the sides of our little house
As the noon sun glowed
We trimmed the holly to make boughs
Then we took some old clothes
And put them on our frosty man
She laughed and began to throw
Balls of snow and around the yard she ran

As I gave chase
We fell with sweet expressions
In that place
Made two angel impressions
Then hand in hand 
We kissed like happy Eskimos
Then from this winter wonderland
We went inside to warm our toes


Oh, under the mistletoe
Surrounded by holly in our little house
As the Christmas tree glowed
I sat at the table with my child and spouse
With a centerpiece, a rose
We thanked the Reason for the Season above
For food, shelter and clothes
Because better is a little than a lot without love

The Only Thoughts in this mind is to stop sh sh shaking
before you is my life taken from me,and if we choose to let this happen
it wont inflict on you but only us

Everytime i see the shades coming down ,leaving that stage
is my eternal heart that has no place
In your heart now i shall watch you leave
My friend

Take me back,for just a second honey
when we were all but one
with all of us together,where our hearts were so true yet dear
and for one last time my friends,take my words 
they are bleeding for the emotions of your ears

Love's Christmas

Bring in the tree, shake off its boughs,
Discuss with friends the whys and hows
Of existence as you trim away,
Sharing together the dreams of the day.

As you carry the children off to bed,
Spare a thought for the Child
In the cattle shed -
For one good man, who wept and bled
For the sake of a better world.

So by all that's fine and sacred then,
Have a care for the hearts of fellow men,
For families, friends and all the others
Since beneath the skin, we all are brothers. 
Deep in our souls we know this to be true,
Be we Christian, Moslem, Buddhist, Jew.

We can be our own saviours,
If only we wish
To mature our behaviors,
Hoping only for this:
To subdue the beasts that lie between us,
To make it this once, Love's Christmas,
For the sake of a better world.

 Somewhere I have you in my arms.
  Sometimes I can feel you in the wind.
 Maybe someday I will see you again.
  Until that day comes I'll be here.
 Now is the time to tell you that I am sorry,

 Please forgive me and know that my heart is true.
  Know that forever it will be just you and me.
 I wish I would have said so much more.
  Wish I would have been there from before.
 Wish I knew what could ease your mothers pain.
   We would laugh and we would sing to the song 
  the good lord has sang to us,and take us to the
   land where you await.
 Maybe someday I will see you again,until that day 
   comes I'll be here.
 She walks across through the room to the window and stares
  at the cold dark night that lays outside.
 She wants him to return to her arms.
  Please know sweet Dylan that I feel the same way.
 Maybe someday,someday.

Mama Told Me

mama tell me the story again
for I know my redeemer liveth 
and walketh upon his higher ground in graceland
let there be peace on earth mama
as we kneel and pray beside
this old rugged cross
let's celebrate new life
and sacrifice to be born again
mama what a friend we have in jesus
for he makes us feel complete
as I get a second chance
thru devotion
my lord I was made to worship you
as I need thee every hour
for morning has broken
and I'm free to be me
for this too shall pass
as christ the lord is risen and
now watches over my family
for I know lord you are thy healer
who can take it all away
so mama turn your eyes upon jesus
as awesome is the lord most high

No Sanity For The Lost

Remembering what you say
the reason for me scratching my bleeding scalp
enter me my kingdom upon the loveliest tree,wait for me im coming down
it's alright if I get stuck while falling down remember me for all i've done
the good bad or ugly,I really dont care that much......
so how could I because I have no luck and why does the baby bird has to fall from the nest 
to learn to fly
I might be the one to hit the pavement but I will be proud that I left on my own
so is this why im alone except for myself in this tree in this tree

Just Gotta Say

Everywhere I go
Jesus is the one
Speaking louder than before
The words I would say

How He loves
How He loves

It's your life
So praise Him in advance
For I just wanna say

How he loves
How he loves

Just wait and see
He'll be by your side
While I'm waiting
For a friend like that
In thy wonderment of

How He loves
How He loves

There will be a day
All because of Jesus
To bring you back
For you're not alone
So set the world on fire in

How He Loves 
How He loves

you try

You try to do right by
You try to teach them
right from wrong.
Not always listing to 
Not always hearing what
you have to say.
All you can do is take
it day by day.
And hope and pray that
something, something you've 
said, they would have
That they might have 
actually learned, what is
right and what is wrong.

You Weren't There..

Though you may be sad loosing a loved one..
You weren't there When God lost his only son..

You may think you have many a debtor...
You weren't there when Jesus was betrayed with thirty pieces of silver...

Though you may be weary and laden with despair..
You didn't witness when they tormented him and didn't care...

Although you may be in agony and immense pain..
You weren't there when the Lamb was fatally slain.

You may think that you cannot carry on and life is grim..
You weren't there when they mocked and spit on him..

Although you may have too many worries at hand..
Look down, you weren't there when they put nails in CHRIST'S bleeding hands.

Although you think you have been badly scorned...
You weren't there when they forced on his head, a crown of thorns..

Though you may feel that everything in your life is going wayside.
You weren't there to feel the sword that pierced HIS bleeding side.

Though you may think that you really don't want to live.
Christ loved us enough to die on the cross, and he will forgive.

My Child

Oh dear Child
Dear Child of Mine
What did I do to deserve thee
What did I do to make you mine?

I look at you in amazement
As you sleep upon my breast
I love you oh so dearly
You are my good, my better, my best.

Sleeping oh so quietly
You have the face of an angel without wings
A peacefulness and a quality
An aura of heaven, not of earth.

Your golden hair frames your childish face
Your lips hold the hint of a smile
Your tiny hands lie clasp in prayer
An innocent gesture not meant to beguile.

I love you more than life itself
Oh ancient child of mine.
I know that you were meant to be
You were meant to be so fine.

Finer than the best of my china
That sits upon the shelf
Finer than all of my jewelry
That I use to adorn myself.

You are my greatest creation
More than anything I could have imagined
I love you more than all the virtues given
I love you more than life itself.

We could have been the perfect pair,
love openly without a care;
secrets, not lies, made me more aware and sad!
You were already committed to someone else,
had kids and a handsome husband
within your reach;
the only missing link
was someone with crafted hands...
someone who could make you dream!

The agony of my regret 
is something I could never forget;
look at you:  you are happy,
and don't need me
to take you to the fartest star,
because you've everything...
and I have nothing!
The agony of my regret hurts in many ways,
and will follow me through my blue nights:
when I stare at the dimmest stars
too distant for me to be reached...
wishing it was you I touched!

We could have loved a lifetime, make
everything easy and wonderful...paint
our rainbows with beautiful colors;
lie beneath the most peaceful skies,
interweave ourselves in warm embraces
and forever dream in a meadow of daises!

Lonely Eyes

I shed a lonely tear for you today
Because you are the child
The child with the lonely eyes
I bet you thought no one was looking
I was
I bet you thought no one cared
I do
I fought the monsters under the bed
Because you are the child
The child with the lonely eyes
I bet you thought no one was fighting
I was
I bet you thought everyone walked away
I didn’t
I had a lovely dream today
For the child with the lonely eyes
That you knew that your fight 
was never alone
I was with you all the time

A Good Father

I never had a father
He was never around
Nor did I know who he was
Both he and my mother let me down

That's why I give everyone the cold shoulder
So I have decided
That when I get older
I will be the best father

That my unborn children
Will love with all their heart
I will always be with them
Nothing will keep us apart

I'll stay home with them
While my wife works in town
And I will make sure
That I will never let them down

Like the way my parents did
I was just a day old
When they gave up their only son
Just the thought of it leaves me cold

I will make sure
That I will not be a bother
But I hope my future children can see
That all I want to be is a good father

Bubba Spent the Night

Our son asked can a friend stay over
He just moved here from dover
The friend says tonight's Friday, usually we have pig's innards
He says my name is Cleetus Billy Joe Jim Bob Jones, after he stutters out his 
name, it's time for dinner
But you can call me Bubba, he seems very polite
I pray no nightmares as Bubba spends the night
I tell him we are having Makerel Cakes and Mac and Cheese
He says I will take four cakes and two helpings if you please
Boy you sure do have an appetite
I tell my son our budget won't allow Bubba to ever again spend the night
Soon dinner is over and Bubba still wants to eat
I grab a funnel and melted bacon fat and tell him to have a seat
He says we eat fatback soup sometimes on a weekday
He tells me the doctor tells his whole family, that sometime their arteries will turn 
to clay
bubba says I don't eat for calories, I eat for taste
I tell Bubba, if you keep eating like that you will become hazardous waste
He laughs and cheers in delight
This all happened when Cleetus Billy Joe Jim Bob Jones spent the night
At 2 am he asks for a snack
I give him a sleeve of Ritz crackers and a pound of Monterey Jack
I hand him a jar of Grey Puopon
He says after I eat this, there may be trouble in your john
He smiles and asks for a Diet Coke
I try to watch my health, I don't drink or smoke
Eight more hours, then our budget will be alright
He asks when is the next time I can spend the night

Tell Me

Your blue eyes
They stand out amongst so many
Leading me down the path to your true self

Will you let me in

To search for the real you
Listen to the secrets that you dare not tell a soul

Would you let me in

Trying to figure you out
To really understand who you are
Learn all those little quirks and all
You know,
Those little things that everyone does
That we just keep to ourselves
Are you ready to expose
All these little untold covert experiences
Attempt to let me in

You have kept to yourself
For way too long
And now it's time
For you to unleash your feelings
And your thoughts
To someone that you know you can trust
What is said amongst two lovers
Should be universally known
Not to share with another
If they just wanted to tell anyone
Then there would not be
That connection
Or that satisfaction
When they finally tell you

A Childs View

Why don't you love me
Why are you so mean
Why wont you let me be the child in me
Please don't be angry
Please don't be sad
But I have to be the person I really am
I'll do all my schoolwork
And I'll do all my chores
I'll even arrange my dresser drawers
I will make some mistakes
And I will stumble and fall
But I will pick myself up and stand there tall
Please don't hit me
Please don't scream
I'm only trying to be the child in me...

Phone Calls Now End

Phone Calls Now End

I am in some middle state. 
Where loss is reality.
Numbness entombs my tears.
Memories leap to consciousness.
My calls to you now confined.
Two lives shared from a distance.
Talking about God and forever.  
You listened to me and I to you.
We loved and cared; we knew.
Long distance relatives, we grew.
Life was better because we talked.
We both said, “I love you.”
You encouraged the hope in me.
And I talked to the heart of you.
God was important in our lives.
Integrity and kindness were goals.
To me, you were a good example.
You walked down that narrow road.
Armored in strength and courage.
You cherished the good in life.
I am glad I got to know you.
Life was better because we talked
We smiled when you recited poetry 
Never again will I hear those words.
Nor will you tell me mine are good.
Cancer took your life from earth.
No more phone calls to converse.
Now, I am in some middle state. 
Where reality shows in my face.
Tears entombed come gushing forth.
Beloved phone calls now must end.
And I will miss you until…when.

To have your heart broken,
just crushed.
To think this could 
never happen to you.
You were the one thing
she could count on.
You were the one person
in her life that was 
always there for her.
Missing that, now that 
it is gone.
Asking herself, what
did she do?
Why is he missing from 
her life?
He was suppose to be
the one person in her
life that would never 
hurt her.
So why did her daddy 
leave her?
Why did her daddy crush
her heart?

Cause God Don't Want Me Here Forever

someday I'm going to leave this place
going to say all of my Godly good grace
for I know I'm going to a better place

Cause God don't want me here forever

Going to say goodbye to some good friends
kiss and hug my child till the very end
say I love you to Mom and Dad once again

Cause God don't want me here forever

Say I'm sorry for all I've done
Still go out and have some great fun
keep reaching for that burning sun

Cause God don't want me here forever

Going to lay in a garden of lace
where the sun shines upon my face
pluck a flower and put it to taste

Cause God don't want me here forever

Going to spread a little love
To the man up above
going to wait for his white doves

Cause God don't want me here forever

Sweet Life

Sweet is no sweeter than you sweetheart 

I’m so impressed by your sweetness 

Your sweet voice is still in my ears

I can feel your presence and it is heart touching 

You are my beauty that I always admire 

You are everything to me 

Without you I suffer 

With you I always feel the support  

That is so sweet and fascinating 

So attractive your features are 

So incomparable your qualities are

You are my best friend 

You are my lovely wife

You are my sweetheart 

For you I can do anything 

I can fight for you

I can die for you

I Need You

You were never there for me
Couldn't you see?
My questions for you are unanswered
So much inside pressure
Why am I always denied?
In my life I have always tried
Two unfilled years untold
Those missing years, will they someday unfold?
I've cried so many times by myself
From you I would ask for help
out-stretched arms in the air
For what? You're not even there
I've lost my pride and faith that I had once inside
All because you pushed me aside
Now you're finally here, what should I do?
Even after all of this, I still need you...

The deadly poison escapes
As the tears roll down
Wondering if there is a reason
For the thoughts
That have overcome my emotions

That feeling of security 
Has once vanished again
As I see you walking away
From the back of my eyelids

Not a daydream
Not reality
But the instinct
That feeling from the pain
That was given to me
Many times before

You aren't the first
You won't be the last
The events that are brought forth
Cause happiness and pain
To the same place

My heart skipped a beat
When you brought me the security that was needed
Now the beat is slowly fading away
Until there is nothing left

Ester of Tsunami (Revisited)

Ester, Queen of the Ocean Wave
Your chances of Survival, appeared to be Very grave
After your Family had lost Sight of you
Last seen wearing a shirt of Royal blue
Strolling, playfully, across the beach
Before the Water rising, was within reach
Then, Disaster struck Every land and building
Causing Aids, your Life, to be shielding
Preparing to take you Someplace to be dry
While assuring you there was No need to cry
As they took you, gently, by Each arm
Out of the mouth of Danger; Safe from harm
To a Place where you could, Comfortably, stay
That you were Allright did your Family pray
Searcng Every village, for So many hours
Like Loved Ones did at the "Infamous Towers"
On that fateful day of Nine Eleven
But, God forbid, if you had gone to heaven
Leaving them while getting through this mess
Wishing to have you to Caress
And, hoping to see Your face, Once more
Luckily, came the MOMENT, they had been waiting for

How can i take life seriously
when it is nothing but a joke
how can i think curiously
when all ive got is hope

Fighting an endless war
just me against the world
im not asking for much
exept to be unferreld

How can i respect anyone
when your habbits rub off on me
ill turnout like everyone else
because of what you let me

How can i look in the mirror
knowing im not myself
how can i trust anyone
when i cant even trust myself

The Real Me

Don't you see
This mask isn't me
This isn't who I really am
But every time I let go
And the real me I let show
The look on you face I can't stand
You look disgusted
Like I can't even be trusted
As soon as I peel the mask
Because I no longer wear
What you had placed there
And I reveal who I really am

An Old Sweet Song

A man who felt that when he walk out the door 
he walk alone and in the dark
inducing him to subject himself to something
that left him null and void
medicating his feelings
stealing his joy
traveling the road of that stuff called boy
rising above adversities
this beloved entertainer was able to see the light
he belted out an old sweet song 
with all his might 
Georgia forever on his mind
he shared the wealth
from a heart that was loving caring and kind
In March he received an apology
from the state that banned him 
Ray was welcomed back to them
his family by his side
he was not alone
Georgia was on his mind
as he sang
an old sweet song

Can the birds sing a song
Can I be the one along
Hear what they say 
Love in the morning love in there song
Can a man make this or not
Sing old bird my love song
I watch you eat and hear your song
But can you make me belong
I wish i could fly
All i can do is cry
Bird of a song let me be
For all to see 
Not a bird here only a man
Wish i could sing
Like the birds in the morning
Man like me can only moan

The Love of A Family

We join together in the good and bad.
Even helping each other when we are mad.
We laugh together
We cry together
We have a bond that sticks together
When we are down you help pick us up
You never, ever give up
We are family that we are.
We have come oh so far.
When were sad you make us smile,
It makes our family all worth wild.
We all have shared some rough times
But we stick together, so we are tough and we always come out on top.
My family means the world to me
And knowing that your family will always be is the greatest gift that God has sent 
to me.

Black Shakespeare

Picture this a lil kid 8 years pen and pad first
let it be known I'm Black Shakespeare with a rap verse
it never hurts to strive harder, dive in stardom,
my thinking cap is starving, mental collapses often.
Awake my pencil out the couffin, sit and contimplate
skills to ovulate mixed with rage I'm spitting spittin bars of fate.
Inscriptin scars in my pages my novelistic ways
is hard to hate calm still involved with the rage.
As God as my witness He knows the struggle keeps me stronger,
the longer I'm involved breathing on the Earth I'm in somber.
Cough a song up, lead by the drummer hey dawg it's dark
in these tunnels,
what's becoming of me writting these poems,
I'm unlike the norm my style and form....Black Shakespeare

A Poem for the Man I Love

Thankful for you
That’s how I’m feeling
For being my friend and my life

You keep me up
Even when I’m down
I’m proud to be your wife

And as we spend
These great years together
My love will never die for you

And as we go through
Those good times and bad times
I promise that I’ll always be true

When you put
This ring on my finger
I said the words of I do

And to this day
Through good times and bad times
I vow every word still stands true

Thankful for you
That’s how I’m feeling
For being my friend and my life

You keep me up
Even when I’m down
I’m proud to be your wife

As time passes
And as we age 
Together I plan us to be

Because in my heart
If we’re not together
There isn’t much to me

You make me happy
And put a smile on my face
And you gave me a beautiful son

From this day forth
I promise the world to you
Because you’re my only one

Thankful for you
That’s how I’m feeling
For being my friend and my life

You keep me up
Even when I’m down
I’m proud to be your wife

Don't know what I'm doing.
My brain's gone, I'm turning into a maniac!
What do you want, what do you need just let me go.
My faith's not gone, it's just slipping.
What am I to you, just another kid or am I more?
Am I a genius? No far from it.
Far from your heart, far from my home, close to my friends, but closer to my enemies.

I am living in this world
thats full of evil and hate
I feel suicidal
theres no more I can take
my pops beaten my mother
made her life a living hell
is there any decent men
well I cant tell
broken up families
Im from a broken home
my father left me strunged out
my mother raised me on her own
few years down the line
hes tryna make it up
I made up my mind
theres no makin up
promises been broken
lies are told
I wish i had a life
living richer that gold
black and bold
my brown skin is beautiful
emotionally disturb
thats why im so lyrical
I have a boyfriend at home
sometimes he do me wrong
even the ones I had before
they even did me wrong
whispers of deceit
tellin me, im the girl of their dreams
its so obvious to me, they only settled for me
since they cant have wat they want
the girl of they fantasy
they saId im the one they want
but its not wat it seems

They Don't See What They're Doin'

Mommy and Daddy sitting in their bedroom
Screaming, yelling, arguing

Who knows what they’re even fighting about,
And who really cares?

It seems to happen all the time
And it just hurts for her to see

Mom is trying to tell him how she feels,
But daddy can’t get past the yelling

Mommy says, “You need to help parent.”
And daddy says, “You’ve got to loosen up.”

Daddy’s to loose and Mommy’s to strict,
They never agree—they always fight

They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’

They don’t see what they’re doin’ to their daughter
They’re completely tearing her up inside

Now they’ve got her questioning love
Wondering if there’s such a thing

She has a boyfriend but she doesn’t really love him
She just needs to feel loved

She seems to feel so alone
Even though she has tons of friends

She doesn’t feel like she’s number one
To anyone

Mommy says, “You need to help parent.”
And daddy says, “You’ve got to loosen up.”

Daddy’s to loose and Mommy’s to strict,
They never agree—they always fight

They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’

They don’t see what they’re doin’ to their daughter
They’re completely tearing her up inside

She begins to think about suicide
She doesn’t know what else to do

So she sits there clutching the knife
Wondering what she’s gonna do 

Then she shouts out “No, I’m not gonna do this!”
I have friends and family

I may not be anybody’s number one,
But I know they’ll miss me if I’m gone.

Mommy says, “You need to help parent.”
And daddy says, “You’ve got to loosen up.”

Daddy’s to loose and Mommy’s to strict,
They never agree—they always fight

They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’

They don’t see what they’re doin’ to their daughter

They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’
They don’t see what they’re doin’

They don’t see what they’re doin’ to their daughter
They’re completely tearing her up inside

happy day

You come to me, you see me smile,
You say"hi, girl! I really like your style!"
I see the name tag on your shirt
And know already that you are a flirt.
You asked me out. I said"All right"
Although i was kind of scared of your height.
And then you said"See you tonight"
And walked away with an extra large sprite.
You looked very handsome when i saw you next time
And all I was thinking of was commiting a crime
With a height of yours i needed to climb
To burn you with a kiss of the wildest thyme
I knew it already, ahead of time
How long would it take me to make you all mine.
I come to you, i see your smile
We exchange the vows,
I have the ring on my hand
And everything goes just like we planned!

Remove Tension

How much you can eat?
Over eating is a defeat,
You can’t work for long,
Your tommy is as a bowl.

How much you can smoke?
Lungs can’t pay hard walk,
Do you want to live in dirt?
Why is your mind so blurt?

How much you can drink?
Normality can looses its link,
What do you want to learn?
If alcohol has reversing burn.

Eat it what do you want?
Keep fit to climb a mount,
Life isn’t so easy to live,
All is short if you have.

Use it what do you want to use?
Keep distance if you can’t refuse,
Dirty things has a painful lesson,
A life can’t wear all fashion.

If a mistake is a cost of Life,
Before to admit ask your wife,
You and she has a share,
Find a way what is fair?

How long a man can carry?
Overload has much worry,
Do you want to remove tension?
Use your mind that a lesson.

Off the road again
Just our ATV's

Hitting the trails 
And winding bends

Guts, God, & Glory

A tribute to the women and men who fought and died and never received their 
just honors or glories.
   And to the mommas and daddies that lost these children, this is their stories.
To say the least war is hellish, ghoulish, and sometimes the last resort to settle 
irreconcilable differences.
   For it’s during these times the devil is let loose to wander freely, disguised as a 
mighty leader is just one way he can alter his many appearances.
War is always given a just and noble cause, but I often wonder sometimes how 
much truth is in all of that.
   What it really boils down to is that someone is trying to push their ways or ideas 
on you and it eventually leads to combat.
So what do you do when you are challenged with these issues.
   Pray to God for wisdom, seek strength, and courage, and hand momma the 
It’s always our children who are the first line of defense against these causes of 
   Freedom has never come cheap, and that is the only explanation you can give 
someone who loses a loved one on some foreign shore.
Could be we might be praising budda while eating that bowl of fish eyes and rice.
   Had that son or daughter of ours not paid the ultimate price.
War should never be condoned but used only as a necessary tool.
   Only for God and country should it ever be used and never allowed in the hands 
of a fool.
So I thank God for my country, and bless the ones that had to fall.
   Where would we be if these brave men and women had not answered the call.

Never I want to give up
Yearning to pick up
Trying hard to persuade
 For which the foundation is laid
 When we will live together happily
 Why there is the split in the family
 Like the water is essential for construction
Understanding and patience is for affection
Which will end the separation
Like the bricks for the building
Trust should be there for loving
Do not ignore even a small thing
Be involved and caring
Otherwise everything will be lost
Don't hurt the sentiments at any cost

Christmas !

Sparkling lights, warm stories
Sounds and smells that linger 
Throughout a season, so short 
But praised with such meaning

My Face

Skin cinnamon brown
What once was oval now is round

Almond shaped eyes with different color shades
Depending on what mood I'm in on that day

Nose just wide enough to fit my face
With a nose ring on the side, which for 13 years has held that place

White teeth and a nice smike filled with pleasentry
That same smile can quickly turn to a frown if you try to cross me

God made me original, there's no one else that looks like me
OH........except for that man and woman child of a butterscotch hue that happen to 
be my off spring!!

Red Necks

The deer is a warm and fresh road kill
Will go good with the moonshine from your still
That red neck life style you will always have
Red Necks don't have to have a reason to be mad
You feel that on taxes you always get screwed
Hunting animals doesn't take a mood
Not accepting others for who they are
Gas guzzling huntin' trucks, there are no cars
Your baby never given a passy
Just a hunk of tobbacky
You spit your tobbacky juice in a mason jar
Fertilize the grass, so you empty it in the yard
A bathroom is where you make it
In the bed of your truck, you and your old lady got caught naked
You brag to the Reds at work about your latest run in with the cops
A few beers later, it's time to raid the Goodwill box
As a bona fide Red Neck it is your life's mission
To pass these quality traits to your son, it's a tradition
Red Necks in the south are a dime a dozen
Most marry their next of kin, usually their cousins
Support your local Red Neck, the bumper sticker reads
It fine print it's local chapter 233
In the parking lot outside your favorite bar
Friday night puking, too much PBR
Saturday morning fatback and beans
Coats the stomach, now you can drink
I cannot criticize Red Necks for living this way
What is normal in society these days

Eyes of Wonder

They say the eyes are the window to the soul
When looking at yours, I wonder what secrets they may hold

Could it be that you're mistrusting, lost , or empty?
Or is it alot more to you than what you allow people to see

The same intense eyes that exude charisma and confidence
Are the very same that seem to be filled with sadness

Whenever you're engulfed in a sea of people you still remain to be an individual 
and not just "a name"
A humble, God fearing man, even with your "claim to fame"

By yourself or in a crowd in your eyes say lonely
Or maybe what I see in you, are the traits recognizebly mirrored in me

In writing this, (like every other poem) I ask God, "who could this be pertaining 
He said, I'll take care of that part, you just keep using this gift I've given you.

So, to whom this may concern if this is too your story
Keep your head up, and I'll pray for you, and you pray for me

Be Blessed

In A Twinkling Of An Eye

In a twinkling of an eye, 
God can take away the fear 
of no more sweet bye and bye
and wipe away all tears of a cry. 
In a twinkling of an eye God can
take away all sadness of a sigh.
and all doubts that He’ll 
not meet us in the sky.
In a twinkling of an eye God can 
take away all evil thoughts of a lye.
And all the worries that 
causes us to ask why? 
In a twinkling of an eye, God can take
Away the anger from you and I
And all the things that
don’t allow us to try..

My Little Girl Who Had No Clue

Mt little girl who had no clue
lately when I look at you
My heart wonders
If your love holds true

Your stares at other guys passing by
In their Lexus BMW's and Limo rides
Can't you see I love you
For theres no other
I swear this is true
For my heart only belongs to you

My little girl
Who had no clue

Come here girl
Let me hold you
Like I used to do
Let me wisper in those ears
I love only you
Don't push me away
For my heart will be blue

My little girl
Who had no clue

I'm begging and pleaing
For I know theres
No other like you
Come take my hand
And let's say I do

My little girl
Who had no clue

Another song working on 
Let Me know what ya think

At last           Tonight
               Happy and calm
What took you so long to love me?

The Magic Of Love

Love is in the air.
Love is in the chocolate and flowers that you give to your husband,wife,girlfriend 
or boyfriend.
Love is better than hating.
Love is the best thing ever that can happen in life.
Your love will stay strong for somebody who you truly love and care about.
No matter what you do for the person you love, they will always thank you by say 
the heart warming words that everyone likes to hear, I Love You.

my sister, my friend

may I use the hem of my garment to wipe away your tears?
may I stand close beside you while you nervously face your fears?
may I place my head on your shoulder when the test results come in?
will you let me comfort you my sister, my friend?

when your man walks out and leaves you and you think you're all alone
will It be me you cry to, when the anger gnaws at your bones?
when your children are in trouble and you're in your despair
can we kneel down beside each other together in prayer?

you can take my hands and squeeze them when the birthing pains get strong
will you allow me to love you whether you're right or you're wrong?
when the pressures of life overwhelm you and make you feel beaten down
can I give you a hug and the words of my God  to help turn the situation around?

though we may disagree and argue, we should set that aside
turn around and forgive each other and let go of our prides
may we be there for each other until the very end
may we love each other like Jesus my sister, my friend

70's anyone?

Crystal dew like sugar water
rock candy brewing in a pot on the counter
Tom Jones scratching up the record player
bell bottoms sweep the floor
Carpet shagged to snag the cat
Mud green curtains are where it's at
Mustard yellow scarf, psychedelic hat
brass "welcome" sign on the door
Parakeets jumming and jirping away
while "The Gong Show" laughs at the act of the day
Piano stiff waiting for my mother to play
slipping me into night's dreams
Cadillac resting it's tons 'till we drive
Photos in polaroids coming alive
Family love thick 'till the day I turned five
and the world burst apart at the seams...

Tears of my Heart

Tears of my heart
just tearing me apart

deep down inside
is were they hide

when you look
can you see
for they hide
deep down inside

tears of my heart
trying to find away out
just tearing me apart

if they only knew
 they were lost
 they don't have a clue

deep down inside is were they hide

waiting to find someone to care
or have someone else bear

these tears of my heart
do you care

for they are just tearing me apart

Details | Lyric | |


I remember the day when I first saw your face.
My heart was filled with so much grace.

Words can not express the way I feel, it is so amazing so unreal.
You inspire me to keep going on , even when I feel that everything is just all 

I'm your mother and you will always depend on me
 and I will always make sure that you are satisfied and happy.

I don't know what I would do without you, your big bright eyes, your precious 
smile, and your sweet little hugs.
Now I can truly say I understand the meaning of A Mother's Love.

Details | Lyric | |

happy day

You come to me, you see me smile,
You say"hi, girl! I really like your style!"
I see the name tag on your shirt
And know already that you are a flirt.
You asked me out. I said"All right"
Although i was kind of scared of your height.
And then you said"See you tonight"
And walked away with an extra large sprite.
You looked very handsome when i saw you next time
And all I was thinking of was commiting a crime
With a height of yours i needed to climb
To burn you with a kiss of the wildest thyme
I knew it already, ahead of time
How long would it take me to make you all mine.
I come to you, i see your smile
We exchange the vows,
I have the ring on my hand
And everything goes just like we planned!

Sunday Morning

Pillowed blankets with cottons cool
Waking up festive next to you
Tip-toeing giddy like a fool
Caressing life while carving through

Pulling a shirt over my head
While keenly watching your calm face
Lying prone upon our plush bed
Vision the darkness won't erase

Duck down the hallway without sound
To the kitchen to summon food
Marveling at the grace I've found
Shedding repugnance from my mood

Clanking the pan while scrambling eggs
The seasons tickle my shrewd nose
Driving the rhythm through my legs
Pulsing with ardor to my toes

Those taps set the pace for my toil
Tilting spirit and prospect up
Your precious gifts shall never spoil
Blessings abound to fill my cup

Lifting my golden entrée out
Stacked on tomatoes with basil
Sharp aged cheddar and fresh bean sprout
Will spur those jewels to dazzle

Pad back down with treasure in hand
Newspaper tucked under my arm
Fluttering lashes find command
Signaling me with eager charm

What a prize to astound my sight!
Lilting words full of wellbeing
Perk my canal with pleasures bright
Our tender moment most freeing

As you sip upon orange juice
Your daughter bounds into the room
Such buoyant youth now on the loose
A gentle bud shed from your bloom

Even my dog cannot hold back
As he too longs to share our joy
His chunky tail gives me a whack
While he nudges you with his toy

My intrepid tribe from heaven
Huddles around your sacred flame
Hope we lounge well past eleven
And next Sunday shall be the same

Goodbye ma an' pa
Worst thing ya ever saw
Me dyin' on ya for bein' successful
Never meant to make your lives so stressful

I do what I do for you, baby
Or I do it for me, for money, maybe
Who knows now, babe
I don't
You told me to not get in trouble
I said I won't

Cursed myself for lyin' before I hit the floor
Never shoulda got into this money war
Didn't mean to lie to you, didn't think I was
It's alright though, babe, stupid is as stupid does

Brother, don't envy me
I'm the worst guy you ever seen
I was good to you, to the crew
We were the best through and through

Told ya I'd be back before 9
My blood fell an hour after then
Red as wine

Didn't mean to lie to you, didn't think I was
It's alright though brother, stupid is as stupid does
Steppin' outside into the fray
What a stupid mistake I made that day

Got a shot to the chest, one to the head
It hurt so bad, boy, I knew I was dead
Shoulda raised you right, never did
Tried to make you a happy kid

Told ya I'd be back for dinner
But sorry, boy, your daddys a sinner
Didn't mean to lie to you, didn't think I was
It's alright though boy, stupid is as stupid does

Heres the apology to myself before I go
We had some fun, it was a great show
Shoulda made the right decisions, I didn't
Said I'd make it through, I didn't

Didn't mean to lie to myself, thought I was the best
It's alright though, I can finally take a rest

When everything seems undoubtly black
Look within these moments
And you will come to find
That those were the best of times

Life, it’s not all fun
It’s not suppose to be
Your memories are reluctant 
As were mine 
Hold on to them 
For those were the very best of our times

Do you feel restrictened
Shall you enlighten me
Together we
Here, now, you and me
In the depths of this valley
Which has come to find me
Remind me to be gentle 
Ever so kind
For those nights
Were the best of times 

In these days to come
Besides you and I 
Nothing really matters
My carnation of timeless plather
Secrets revealed 
Yet only whispers tell us 
That these will be 
The very best of times 

"Best of Times"

For the Holidays

A simple decision
I came to accept at a younger age than known
I don’t remember my earlier birthdays
But since it fell in place
September, November, December
Then it’s a depressional season alone
If it were up to me, when I reached seven
I would have been heavenly gone
And you ask me
Will I be coming home for the holidays?
Holidays, they come, they go
For smiles and snow, a New York warmth
I’d trade with any convict doing death row
You punish me, but it seems to be
Something more than mischief
A flaw in your parental morals 
Let’s graph the hope held in each poor child 
You and I 
We have-nots were claimed as plurals 
Life long friends 
How much more can we endure pal
Do you no longer ask
If I’ll be home for the holidays
This is for your birthday, each passing Christmas
The wars in which you continue to enlist us 
The days you missed us 
The casualties whom bit the dust 
The individuals whom pissed on trust 
For those entitled to this imperishable crush
Will you be home for the holidays?

Details | Lyric | |

I Am Your Son, Father

I am your son, Father
From the throne of your graces
I beg thee, your love, upon me outpour

I am your son, Father
With contrite heart, I plead
Help me endure all the sufferings
You set upon my soul

I am your son, Father
From pains and sorrows
Lift me into thy throne

I am your son, Father
Thy command, I will follow 
Thou I may lose all my wealth, I’ll live
But, not without you

Details | Lyric | |

Pile It On

Is the storm over yet,
my head is ready to split,
one thing, and then the other,
I'm ready to get back under the cover.

I am ready to say, pile it on,
why not, my stomach is in a knot,
everyday something new,
mercy, mercy, what do I do?

Day in, and day out, here you go again,
running your head, facing you is my 
biggest dread, you must be totally
brain dead, or you just don't care.

I long for my home when I’m away
But I’m determined to leave anyway
So I’m going to pack my bags and leave this town
I put on my make up and wear my crown.

I miss my bed now that I’m away
Knowing that I won’t be home till Sunday
So I searched for a few pieces of stationery
For only through words I find sanctuary.

My plane will leave at seven
In that foreign land blessings are given
I really want to stay
But it’s better to go anyway.

I will surely cry now that I’m away
But I know I don’t have to leave someday
So while that sun is out I’ll make hay
I’ll do anything no matter what they say

So worry about  me no more
For I am in the good graces of the future.

Details | Lyric | |


My voice is so small
How can I change the world
In order to have heaven on earth

I’m not that smart or strong
Either I’m invisible or treated like a dog
No one can hear my voice so small

But my small voice heard your inner child
It was afraid of the gangsters on the corner
It was dreaming of playing in the sprinklers with the other children

I see happiness and love
As you watch your first child comes into this world
As you leave your love ones all alone

I see ways to make the world a better place
As men fight to be the alpha male
As people struggle to hold their families together

Please hear me now before it’s too late
For healing the world is everyone’s fate
Only love can be so great

Details | Lyric | |


You have it all.
You have your picket fence.
Your trinkets and toys
Yet you are unhappy.

You need more than this
You long for nourishment
Your soul waits.

You find your meditation helps.
Working on your inner spirit.
Yet everything is fleeting.

You ignore it and press on
Yet, It’s right there in your face
Remember me? I’m here too 
Watching you.

I want you to listen.
That’s why you are unhappy.
Your spirit waits for hope
But you keep looking down.

The depression will continue
And you will wonder why.
You’ll read another book.
And balance on your grasp of things.
But I see it.
You hurt for what you fear seeing
But it will only hurt at first.
Then it will pour in filling the void.

You’ve found lessons and learning
From all over the globe
You’ve searched all the inner wisdom
Possible accept one.

My dear sister,

Look Up.

Details | Lyric | |


To the mind that's choked as a stagnant pool With algae covering Its simplest thought. Departed is the recall of this magnificent tool Absent is the passion for life once sought. Deadpan eyes meet those ensconced with pain Seeking much patience and understanding. From the life that was, let the memories remain Sometimes life seems cruel and demanding.

Fallen Again (No More)

I see my mother cried
When I came back
All seemed sad
I can't relax
Too many depression
Can't get over this situation
Where I am just have the intention
Being under a suffocation
Too much too bear
All that I care
Thinking Life is a dare
Which is not fair
Now, we have fallen again

I see myself torn apart
Trying to repair my heart
Although it is hard
All we want is just an ending
A happy ending
A life of believing
That we can survive this
But what happened to us
I do not ask
It is not the past
It is now the present
Help us
Help us

We had fallen again
And again!
And we seek your help
We fallen again
and again!
No more!
No more please
No More!
No more pain!

Get a Place

My dad is little angry but mum is alright.
If they feel different don’t get so tight.
They love me very much that’s why,
They always measure what is my height?

Dad heart is pure consult me always free,
I respect for experience he has knowledge light.
Mum cares for my taste and for a fashion,
Her choice is wonderful and very bright.

They shared my pain and offered happiness,
Sometimes I have argument but they were right.
If partner is in a young age enjoyment is lot,
Money and degree can’t get a place might.

If children are in early age they grown up soon,
Grand will be ever happy in olden age fight.
A right time is a right time and bad time is bad,
Care for your time if you want to enjoy life kite.

Spiral of Sadness

The heart that is empty, 
The mind that is full. 
The tunnel of sight that blurs to a haze. 
The pressure feels heavy, 
The shoulders weigh low. 
The eyes fix focus, and then rapidly glaze. 

The expectation of progress, 
The need to improve. 
Fragile friendships and strained relations. 
The mood that implodes 
Into the spiral of sadness, and 
The wasting hours of inward contemplation. 

Happier times seem only a blur, 
As much a figment as yesterday. 
The continuation of the baseline life. 
A rational understanding, 
An irrational overbearing. 
The emotions balance along the edge of the knife. 

What is this melancholy? 
From where is its power? 
Why do I allow it to twist and to tease me? 
Is my self no longer my own? 
Am I no longer a One? 
Is there nothing more that can properly please me? 

The frustration of others, 
The anger at self. 
The dreams that died a thousand times. 
The hope for tomorrow, 
The coping with today, 
The mountain that is so hard to climb. 

There must be an end, 
The confusion will clear. 
The doubting will lessen, 
The removal of fear. 
The belief in the will, 
And a life that moves on. 
Look up, deep breath, 
Face today's every moment 
With a heart that is strong.

The Family Gathering

Three sisters, one brother, and our dear parents too,
Not counting our children, which numbered quite a few.
Prepared the family gathering, our laughter to live on,
All seeming happy and anything but blue.
With tables set for sharing the food of joy and cheer,
Thanks were given to our Lord
For the passing year.
With dinner feast over and another year to soon disappear,
We look around to find we're still together,
As so are very few.
All the family members have just put their hunger to rest,
And with God's blessings, we still have our family nest.
With younger days and years left far, far behind,
We reach for our memories to share,
One more time.
The laughter was heavy and spirits feeling free,
One more gathering, for our family tree.
Our school-day dances, we tried to do,
Listening to old records of, 
God knows who.
With our childhood vanished, and many years gone by,
Least we forget the family gatherings,
 We've shared during our lives.

My Dedication to You

I watched you die today
Not in person but in my heart
I got the call
And ever since i've sat here cyring
I didn't get to say good-bye
Or I love you
But I know you knew
At least I hope

I was always scared to see you 
Not able to to anything you liked
Or when they told me I couldn't
I pushed you to the limit
I got you to walk once or twice
And then they sent you to rehab
It was my fault you died
I just simply pushed you too hard

The day of the funeral
I was so nervous
I watched the movie of your life
And the last picture is the one I have of you
When I saw it I knew it really happened
Then I put flowers in your hands
Ones you would have loved
And they carried you away in peace

Everyday I've wished you were here
It's been so beautiful these days
I know you'd love them
But you're somewhere better
Where it's always sunny
Never a cloud in sight
Full of peace and serenity
And love for everything

A Family Man (angel of sadness)

A Family Man

Lately I can see me providing for a family
But it's all weary thoughts aside from the demands in me
Why do this, why do that
Seems daily I lie dying on a tear soaked mat
Teachers wanna beg on me for childhood memories
All I've had is abusive tendacies
Hence forth and back to thee
Yet still I can see a family man, a softer me
The characteristics I offer to be
No more jumping homes, it's not a foster plea
The martial status of we, undo what they see
Pictures of my most wanted misery burning
A cast so rationalized in fear
It's only here to see me turning
As I satisfy my bitter aches with this funnel
Such a long tunnel, an impossible journey
Haunted thoughts of a family man, a softer me
No time realm could alter we
Back to stretch my muse
A dried up vision, died confused
Nearly bruised, alternatives misused
If I should fall from this stairway
Grab me and salvage yourself another day
It's only fair play
I could do a lot worse than a snare could say

Details | Lyric | |

Who I Am

I look in the mirror 
staring at my reflection
Wondering who I really am?
I see my mothers smile
and my fathers eyes
but I can't see me, Who am I?
I see my grandmothers cheeks 
and my grandfathers nose
but I still can't see me, Who am I?
I have my Memes hair 
and my Pepeirs ears
I can see all of my elders 
but I can't see me, Who am I?
I sat there in the mirror for hours 
seeing everyone that I love
but there was still no sign of me in there.
I closed my eyes 
and opened my heart wide
feeling the love of my family 
while studying all their faces.
As I opened my eyes 
and looked back into mirror
it was then that I understood.
All of those faces 
looking back at me is Who I am.
I am all of them 
and they are all of me.

The headlights bathe the road ahead;
The night echoes the diesel engine’s drone.
I listen to the radio and wish
That I were with my wife and kids, at home.
But hauling freight’s what pays the bills,
And it’s become the only way I know.
I shake my head and breathe a sigh,
While eighteen wheels make music on the road. 
A slow, cold rain is falling down;
I pray it stops before it starts to freeze.
These mountain roads are bad at best,
And they are near impossible on nights like these--
But at the end of this long run,
They’re awaiting the delivery of my load.
The windshield wipers beat in time
While eighteen wheels make music on the road.
I watch the mile posts flashing by,
As midnight ushers in another day.
I scratch my head, and try to guess 
How many times I’ve traveled down this same highway.    
I think of children tucked in bed,
And the warm, sweet wife who waits for me, I know.
I feel a lonely ache inside,
While eighteen wheels make music on the road.

Why can't I get you out of my head

Why can't I get you out of my head 
It hurts so bad when I think of what you did 
I thought our love was strong 
I thought our love was pure
My love is still there 
But yours has gone away
When I see you I think 
What we could have been 
When I look at the kids 
I see you 
I begin to cry
I have to be strong 
To show them daddy's not weak
But I can't not think of you 	
My heart has been broken 
It will never heal 
Why can't I get you out of my head
When Madison see's me cry
She asks why 
Why are you crying Daddy 
I tell her daddy is hurting 
She say do you have a boo boo 
I say yes in my heart 
There is no fix for that 
Then she says 
Daddy I'll kiss it and make it better 
In my head I think 
Why can't you care like she does 
I wish one day
I will have you in my arms again
I think of you all the time 
My whole life I wanted a family 
I had one a beautiful wife and two beautiful kids 
Now since you are gone 
I don't know what to do 
Why can't I get you out of my head 
Seven years thrown down the drain
How can you just walk away 
And not look back
You don't under stand 
How much I love you 
I never really knew until you were gone 
It hurts so bad 
I want my Family back again
Why can't I get you out of my head

Daddy's Still Alive

Oh momma, you don’t have to cry!
So wipe the tears away from your eyes.
Because your love will make him stay
And never let him go.
Daddy’s still alive in my soul!

Oh sister, don’t you fall apart
For his memory will remain in your heart!
And his presence will be known
To all of those who cared.
Daddy’s still alive in my eyes!

And don’t you forget
All he’s said and done,
And all those battles
That he’s won.
For Daddy’s love will lead us on 
In the days ahead.
Daddy’s still alive in my eyes!

Oh brother, don’t you see him here?
For he’s standing oh, so very near!
He’s standing right in front of me
And he’s pointing the way.
Daddy’s still alive today!
Daddy’s still alive in my eyes!

A Person

If a person is smart,
Everyone has a loving heart,
If a person is ugly,
Nobody cares his part.

If a person is wise,
His markings are surprise,
If a person is dull,
He makes temper rise.

If a person is honest,
He is polite and feels best,
If a person is a cheater,
He lost his name in a list.

If a person is hard worker,
Everyone honours him fur,
If a person is idle,
Everyone pushes him far.

If a person is talkative,
He is always active,
If a person is quiet,
He is nice impressive.

If a person is a carer
He serves always fairer,
If a person is selfish,
He is a handy darer.

If a person is lover,
He never misses a shower,
If a person has hate,
He has jealous coward.

If a person is friendly,
He is dealing quietly,
If a person is rude,
He is cooperative hardly.

Tell me!

 Oh now,
Tell me you're stronger now,
Tell me you can see me from up[ above,
Tell me you believe in me,
 and that I can accomplish the things I wish I could.
Tell me you're happy where you are.
Tell me you'll wait for me at that door.
Tell me when my day comes you and Grandpa,
 will be my angels who'll lift me up, to my home above.
I never want to let you go.
So this is my way of saying no!
Grandma I love you!
Grandma I miss you!
Grandma I need you to satnd by myside.
You left without saying goodbye!
But that's okay I knoe this can't be the end,
I want to see you again.
I want to knoe,
I need to knoe,
I have to knoe.
So, please tell me.
Are you stronger now?
Can you see me from where you are?
Are you happy now?
And tell me you believe in me
 and that I can accomplish the things I wish I could.

Wake up and see the light

My life is like a sad song
that no one wants to play
cause then all their emotions
just might get in the way
and no one really knows
exactly what to say
things have been spinning out of control
for quite a long time now
each time I think I have a good grip
that's when it begins to slip
whirling around again
and I'm left to wonder
will it ever end?

I know hearts get broken 
and need to mend
but even when you think 
you can move on you sometimes
may still sink
be careful when you blink
reality changes and life hits hard
you can't always keep up your guard
that's when you don't want to deal
with what life has handed you
and fantasy sets in

So I soon found myself pondering over
what could have been
that in itself drove me insane
I realized I could longer
take life in vain
and things couldn't stay the same
everything once again had to change
i want my life back as it once was before
I know though I can only move forward
there's no going back
no matter how much you pray, dream, hope, wish or try
this only makes me want to cry

But there's a message that I need to send
to a very long lost but
dear special friend
yet finding him thus far hasn't proved to be promising
i still keep searching 
even though each time it's failed
it brings heartache and tears
not doing this however will bring me
to many other fears
more than the ones I already now face
from over the years
and hopefully the end will have the means
and my just reward will be oh so sweet
then those tears will be ones of joy
one thing I've learned from all this confusion
if you find true down deep love
unconditional love
capture it and hang on
it may be one hell of a flight
but if you do let go to mister right
don't let him to far out of your sight
because one day you to just might
wake up and see the light

A wondering heart

I sometimes lie in my bed, wondering why you said
good-bye to life

I sometimes lie in the grass, wondering why you kept it
from the whole family.

I sometimes sit on the side of your grave, wondering
why you were so calm through it all.

I sometimes sit next to granny, wondering why i don't feel 
your presents around us.

I sometimes sit next to dad, wondering why i don't see
your spirit sitting around us.

I sometimes stand in your room, wondering if your 
standing next to me.

I sometimes lie in my bed crying, wondering if your
crying with me.

I sometimes lie by your grave, wondering if you hear my
wondering heart.

Its saying why... Why my papa? Out of all of the 
papa's in the world, why mine? what does mine have
that no other has? He's got me.

                                                    I love you Papa!
                                                 From your Babygirl!

I Am Lost

What is going with my life
How can I fall with no limits below me
The world is full of ups and downs
That no one can ever be free

Thinking everything is alright in here
I trembled by seconds while watching others suffer
I helped them in anyway I can
Without my strength, where I had no power

I could pull myself back up 
And undo the things that are becoming worse
I wished I could go back in time
And listen to my family at first

Now we had fallen from nothing
A pit with a limitless bottom down below
We struggled together in this situation
But it is hard for me to follow

I am confused now, I am so lost
I want to break down at this time
I wished I could do something
But being so vulnerable, I am lost inside

We pulled ourselves together
And we could think of other ways
To get through all of this
Our problems, we could have erased

Still thinking, still needing help
I was just standing one side
The world just move as I think
The answer i can't seem to find

Knelt down onto my knees
Put my head high up
My hands holding tightly above
I prayed, wishing i could shout

I am lost in the middle of nowhere
I am lost, i am here by myself
I can't live without my strength
I am lost inside what it feels like hell

I am lost in my heart
I am lost and I am alone
I can't be free without my power
But I still had one thing

Sleepless Nights

I lay down beside you on this cold night
There is nothing in sight
Gaze into each others eyes
Letting all lies slip by 
Silence waits fatally throughout the room
Rain trickles down the windows playing a gracious tune
Empty space surrounding us 
Wondering what lies ahead if we must
Watching the world pass by
Listening to our sighs
   Secrets concealed in these walls
Deserted in the halls
Lights flickering on and off
Our hands together feel so soft
Timeless voices 
Our breathing is the only noise
Let us fall asleep
Our minds now fill with dreams

My Candle

All across the countries
A flag is raised once a year
To celebrate the laps of love
Spread into the heart of a dove
Always shall she be with us 
For she's the light of trust
She held us with hands of care
Destroying every speck of despair
Close to our hearts is her smile
That shall never shrink and expire
Throughout our life she shall glow
Pervading her kindness that always flows
There's no one that can replace such an angel
That lightens our way just like a candle
Protection and love fills her soul
For she can not see her child losing his goal
I love you so much, i really do
For our friendship beheaded foe
Never shall I forget  your love
Nor your gleaming, glittering face above
My head that I once laid 
On your laps when I was a child
Nothing can express my love to you 
But, this poem is a piece of the puzzle that's so true
Adding up to the rest of the pieces that I've once shared
With you, my mother, indicating how much I've loved
And shall always love
You, my mother, I shall always adore
For today's the day to wish you and say
A Happy Mother's Day

Details | Lyric | |

A Mother

Her eyes have seen sorrows, 
as deep as the blue sea,
her ears have heard words,
that she will never forget.

Her arms have held her children,
so tiny and sweet,
her heart has felt pain,
that will never set her free.

Her love is like a mountain,
that will never be climbed,
this is a mother,
yours, and mine..

My Father

My Father

I am special because my Father is also the Father of the world. 
We are all His special children, for on His finger the earth has twirled.

Though my earthly Father abandoned me, He was always there;
It brings tears to my eyes to ponder all of the ways that He cares.

The understanding way He listens when I need someone to talk to;
Or the way He makes me smile when He whispers “I love you.”

Perhaps it’s the fact that He will never leave me alone to wander,
For it is His loving words alone that make my love for Him grow fonder. 

What I count on most is His protection and His guardianship over me;
When I am hurt or angry He says “Let it go and it will set you free.”

I sometimes don’t want to because the people hurt and ignore me so,
But I know He will deal with them harshly but first I must let it go. 

There are no words to describe what His love feels like and means to me,
But here are a few: amazing, awesome, beautiful, and supremely happy.

I love Him with every fiber of my being-my soul-my spirit-my whole heart;
It is my faith that lets me know that my Father and I will never be apart.

I know He created the entire universe and that He created me.
Most of all, I know that my Father and I will live together in eternity.

If someone is going to love me, I want it to be You,
When life throws stones, I want to be with You,
When the day is long and the night is cold, I want to be with You,
When sadness suffocates and someone helps me breath, I want it to be You,
When I am bursting with happiness, I want to share it with You,
When someone brings me to my knees, I want it to be You,
When someone makes me feel better, I want it to be You,
When I am lonely, I find companionship with You,
When life writes its last page, I want the book to be about me and You,
If someone is going to love me I want it to be You.

After Quarreling




When I quarrel with you, my loved,

All stars in the sky die away one by one.

Somewhere the moon hides.

All around, it becomes so gloomy,

that hope is not visible.

When I quarrel with you,

A wind is crying that «tomorrow» will not be more,

But will be only «yesterday».

The world is deaf,

and malicious cold

can steal our love very easily.

When we quarrel, my loved,

for me is only continuous night,

without morning and without day.

Birds do not sing any more,

only crows cry to all, that my love has died.

When we quarrel, my dear,

I have none of my thoughts

and in general, I almost do not live.

I lose myself in main fight with myself,

when I quarrel with you, my loved.

Western is what i am to be.

My brothers, and my fathers are 
to be cowboys.

My sisters and my mothers are 
to be cowgirls.

The western skies and the western
lies, are all part of the western child's
dream of what lies ahead.

Everything of the western is not just a
land of dreams and oppertunaties,
but just a place i call my home.

It's where i stand with family and friends,
a place with honor and freedom.

This western place i call my home,
is but the one and only America.

The cowboys are my brothers and fathers,
as the cowgirls are my sisters and mothers.

A western child is what i am to be.

If Love Was Easy

If love was easy
There would be no need to develop trust
Love would be drowned in lust,
Days would be long and,
Nights would be cold,
No one to take your hand as you grow old
Wedding vows would diminish
Families would be redefined
In a world inconsiderate of time
The love of parents and children are not exempt
Helping each other would not even be a worthy attempt
Without trails so much growth would be lost,
Loving with ease comes at such a great cost
So remember when your heart is bruised and sore,
If love was easy, there would be nothing to strive for.

Three Words I Long To Know

My confidence is insecure. It is dreadfully low
There are three words that I long to know.
The answer determines if I stay or if I go.
Don’t want to rush. Take your time. Go slow.

My heart beats whenever I hear your name.
You are my life, my love’s one and only flame.
I can only hope that one day, you’ll feel the same.
Your feelings are silenced. I’m going insane.

You’re so complex. Sometimes you’re a mystery.
You said you wanted to spend your life with me.
What ‘s missing? Is there something I don’t see?
I cannot unlock that door, only you hold the key.

You’re my significant other. You’re all that I speak of.
We’re a great deal alike. We resemble hand to glove.
You’re the only man that I’ll ever want to love.
The answer I’ll wait. I’ll not push nor will I shove.

I’ll fade to the background. My love for you is known.
My hearts awfully restless. My soul is so alone.
Each and every passing day; my love for you grows.
My love there are three words that I long to know.

Back At Home With You

Travelin down this freeway,
I'm wishing I were free from this world that I'm in...
I'm wonderin  if the traffic knows just where they're
going? and if they knew the storm was coming,
would they continue on this road?

Travelin down this freeway,
I'm wishing I were home where the love of Jesus grows...
Why did I choose to continue on this road
where the unknown comes, unknown?
My family back at home wonders when I'll return,
I'll stay dear family, where I belong.
Back at home with you.

Evil Clock

I hate evil.
The clock is evil.
The calendar is evil.
All they do is tell me
When it's time.
Without speeding up
Without slowing down
At the appropriate moments,
They dictate at a constant pace
How long I have until I'm with you.
Then, how long I have with you until...
It's time to part.  Happy trails?  No.
I leave a trail of tears from you to me,
And it's time to start all over again-
The process of missing you
And wanting to be with you,
Being sad and lonely
And waiting to be with you;
Then with you I'm redeeming time.
I'm yielding to every minute.
The clock commands the time;
Time demands the day,
And the calendar dictates
Days, weeks, months and years.
They're unyielding
And won't wait on me.
All they do is tell me when it's time.
The clock is evil.
The calendar is evil.
Without speeding up
Without slowing down
At the appropriate moments.
I hate this evil.

Dedicated to MyChelle and Heather

Much Love

Miles are between us, but we are so close,
just like room mates, all of us.
We worry, and care, about everyone here,
if one is sad, then, there are many tears.
Never feel alone, for alone you are not,
and if you do, to the keyboard, you must trot.
Close your eyes, and wrap your arms around us,
we are a family, one you can always trust.

Sit alone

I sit alone to wonder why things are how they are
I sit alone with no ones shoulder to cry on
I sit alone with not even myself to rely on
I trust many yet never myself
I have lost so much over the years
because i give out my heart and soul to freely
so much so that I lost who I really was in the process
I long to be who I used to be
happy, not with how I looked, but who I was
and the people I loved were the ones I could trust
with everything
But see I had let them go
because I trusted in me not what I had
sometimes I break down from seeing how the years
have gone
funny you don't notice while they are flying by
but one day you suddenly stop and start to cry
and you wonder how you made it through without
the family and friends you once knew
and little ones have grown up in a blind of an eye
and you were hardly there to see it happening
once you realize that time is slipping away from you
you may feel like there's not much you can do
I did
but then for me, my family and friends welcomed me back
with open arms
and it's so good to be here with everyone again
had it not been for everyone being there for me
supporting me, and telling me how I could do this or that
I wouldn't be able to continue on looking for people
from my past who weigh heavily on my mind
they have been extremely hard to find
but I still try, and am starting to hold my head up high
and perhaps sooner than later I will not
sit alone to wonder any longer
