ROUTE 66

We're ready to rip on a fun road trip
The top down we'll be cruising fast
Gonna get our kicks on Route 66
All geared up for a totally hip blast
We'll drive and sing, do groovy things
From the Windy City to nifty, cool L.A.
Over 2,400 miles of culture and styles
Oh, dying to play and sow some hay
Cities and towns and messing around
Tracks conceived with friends Tim and Eve
Hand on the stick this our Route 66 fix
California dreaming. ya gotta believe!

We Were Young Once Upon a Time

We spent time with each other time after time
Now, we're older now...looking AT THE TIME FLY...
We were young and happy that splendid time
But, we have grown out of it somehow...I'm gonna cry...
And I know the reason why
I wanna cry...we dreamt of spreading our wings and flying away, being one with 
the current of the aqua-blue sky

We were young once upon a time
But, our young heart never was one – if it was, that would have been sublime
This shame bestows woe upon my soul…because I wish upon a star and my 
wish never came true
My heart is scorching like coal...because I’m enraged of your heartless actions, 
but that’s nothin’ new
My heart is beating like the drums in the night
I know why I feel depressed – everything’s black and white now…I know the 
difference between wrong and right and I’ve fought the good fight
But I can’t fight the rejected of the departure that lead to my rue…but I won’t 
cry (boohoo)…oh no, not tonight…I wanna be as high as a kite & look at life in 
a different light

CHORUS:
I will squander my time now and forever
(Are you an evil, fallen angel?)
Until I meet you eye to eye again
Our departure came to soon…our future’s a blur
(sarcasm: Oh you must be a sweet, beautiful angel –)
Come on & get out of the lion’s den!
Release me…I need to let go…
Believe in me…reflect on me…
Release me…let me go with the flow
Let me grow and see…the light at the end of the tunnel
There’s other fish in the sea…

Rejected departure (that reduces me to rue)
Won’t mess with me this time…I am as fresh as morning dew
I wear an upside down frown
Gravity won’t push me down 
I’ll Stand Tall and Give it My All
I feel like I’ve been kicked around like a ball
I won’t fall apart
God takes me seriously
He took heart
But, oh God – where shall I flee?
What if sin throws me into captivity?
I would be in chains
But, I have the brains
To unchain me from my fretful fate
I will get out in no time – I won’t hesitate
I’ve been trapped in this shameful state
Help me along the way
I need God’s sun-shining day
To shed relief on me
Ease the pain 
Scrub off my heart’s blasphemy 
Shower down your healing rain  
Now, I look at life in a different light
I feel no guilt – why should I when I fought the good fight with all of my 
perpetual, awesome might? My heart is doused in delight, no longer doused in 
dismay and ahhh-fright!

We spent time with each other here and there
We lived our lives without a single care
But that was once upon a time
It was just a dream all along, though it was crime

~@#$%^&!*()_+=-)(*&^%$%$#@!~

with all the rights, obligations
and privileges that come with wifehood.
I shall endevour to wipe off and ward off
loneliness and lostness from our relationship,
seeking nothing but your companionship;
banking on your stewardship,
sinking together any hardship.
Since you are mine
I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

NATIVE WHISPER OF THE WINDS



Legends of tribes roam across the plains Bold spirits guarding their own mighty land They dance and offer songs asking for rain To nourish grains when omens rise on, Encircling a bonfire with shaman’s praise. The whisper of the winds gives them strength An Indian terrain, they protect Oh, hear drumbeats pound a mighty roar As chieftain gathers the arrow’s quest For the call of blood, for freedom’s dreams. Legends passed from generations Grandpas holding peace pipes, tales unfold When full moon speaks of native wisdom To recount strides in brave moccasins
Marking prints from whisper of the winds.

Moments In Time

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

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

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

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

Rhyme XOX

I just want my summertime
To be at a stand still.
Sometimes, when women cross my mind,
I'm not sure just what to feel.

I'd like to call her friend,
And I want us to mean something.
I can find several, yet in the end,
It seems like all I have is nothing.

So where is the evidence
That says I should move forward?
Show me a sign that's heaven sent;
A point I should move toward.

A Butterfly Inside --The Butterfly Flutters By

I feel a butterfly inside;
Its wings are cramped within my breast.
The weight of flesh, o dull cocoon,
Prohibits my free flight. At best
I only soar inside; my wings--
Gossamer, light, remain untried.
I wait...I wait...until the day
The barred' cage is flung aside
And airy wings lift toward the skies.

I have felt this graceful creature 
Flutter faintly deep inside;
Then, at times, so ardently,
I think no way will it abide!
It will be loosed! Its wish to fly
Will push the bars of flesh aside.
Determined is this butterfly 
To show its colors multiplied
And wing its way through azure skies.

The time is drawing near, I'm sure;
The throbbing swells within my heart.
The cumbrous cocoon, filled with life,
Is bursting now, falling apart.
The butterfly is breaking free;
No more its wings will tightly furl,
But lightly spread upon the breeze 
Their filmy webs, gilded and pearled...
The butterfly flutters by the world...

The Freedom of my Soul

The freedom of my soul is my one goal
The freedom of my soul, I can't afford to
let it grow old.

You! You are the chain that binds my brain. 
I must find strength  within, my life I must begin 
again.

And though this move of my desire will hurt me bad, 
it's the thing to make my soul glad.

I must to my own self be true, I can't keep waiting for
you.  I love you, yes, always I do, but to myself  I must
be true.

I've asked you time and again to treat me like a friend.
I don't know what it is about me that makes you vile, but
it's my turn to live for a while.  

And though it hurts me to go my separate way, God says 
there is  a brighter day.

So if one day you do suppose that you and I will have the 
same goals, then do you come to my heart with glee, for 
you my love, then too will be free.

Generic Minds

generic minds listen to generic music
have generic thoughts that are unknowingly abusive
watch generic things talk about generic things
gee this generic *****is spreading like a disease
better get your flu shot 
thats what they said to me
a suicidal vaccine 
a subliminal killing spree
its contagious and the outrageous
thing about it is that the people are blind in an eye
that they didn't even know they had
it's sickening to watch these clueless civilians 
inside the looking glass
with nightmares of being free
without a key to their mind
for it is trapped in the frequency
in the illusion of time
bathed in our universe
killing all that refuse to see
those that admit to hypocracy
or see the message in hip hop
how cant you see
the message in the lyrics that
bring adolescents to their knees
from bullet wounds conflicting their flesh
contradicting that they're the best
but the songs keep telling them that they dont need no rest
that they dont wanna go home
that they should ride alone
with the gat as their only companion
and so the only path they choose is the one that they're told
until they grow old and hope turns to a window pane
inside a window pane, until all they feel is pain
they realize that the music itself is ashamed
so whats to look up to
when you cant even speak when you cant even walk because you look so bleak
your eyes are sunken from the tv you're infested with the dee zees
now its too late to turn around and live for your conscious
so when youre screaming oh please
close your eyes and bring your mind to life
open your eyes for the first time
and never wonder why
since the answer this entire time
has been inside
and you better find it before you die
you dont want your soul to be in a pool with all the others
a buncha brothers missing their mothers
but only seeing strangers
only feeling the haters
wishing they would have used their minds when they had them
and now its too late,
now it's time for another new born fate to grab them

Music

Music calms the angry heart, its glorious rhythm penetrates the dark, the way I feel when the sound waves seep through my hair, consumes my soul with a suttle stare, my feet so happy, my body enriched with vibrations, my soul so at ease, I'm here for the taking.
 

I play from my experience, I put on a show, my hidden words entangled with the things that I know, smiles surround me, they glance by my feet, their inner beings amazed by my beat.
 

I beat my drums, I play my strings, they show me their affection, this is where I get my wings, they say I can fly, it seems I can soar, my music so perfect, they keep asking for more.
 

I do what I love, and they love what I do, music is my life, I am so happy that I can share it with you.

he is leaving home

                            
                  In great respect of the band I grew up listening to
                       as sure as Mom passed down Saturday Chores 
                      for I had been chosen to scrub bathroom floors `

                    Yet a familiar sound would bring me to keep scrubbing
                       The red album, The blue album , The White album 
                        Then .. Abbey Road , always remembering the sad look on
                  Ringo's face ,  something hard to understand underneath~
                       
                      I get it now, what you were saying all those years ago ,
                    the many sad lonely tears , secret tears , secret fears 
                    For Maxwell's Hammer was a real one . It wanted silence

                    Going back ..remembering when John Lennon died 
                      I was in Arkansas saddened with the world .
                      Then seeing his face saying " Drag isn't it " 
                      No .. this was not my hero in music and song .

                      he was a stand in hired William , he filled his shoes 
                      bringing diversity to create so much beautiful music from loss

                       One left standing , alone;; grief struck on back cover ~
                       The other identity hidden, tried to be part of ..coming together

Solipsist

Let the Deicide commence.

You're a voyeur at best!
Your vampiric heart is beating out of your chest!
And you have slayed the ones whom would love you for anything less
Ready to consume the final fragments of innocence,
And for you there is no forgiveness,
On your knees pleading, screaming to a tyrant in the skies;
The father of lies.

I will never be enslaved in your superiority
The people agree: jaded of your false dichotomies.
Know: I will be whomever nature intends to be
Apollo and I will share our dreams,
and you will be forced to see
your failure!

I know who you are...
Readily the first to present your scars
Chained by some despot or mental czar
An emotional homunculus in your mind, behind bars
Reluctant to escape - even when proven fake
Your demented mind - depths no one will penetrate!
 
...And you see me suffering
Not caring of any casualties
Just as long you recieve your safeguard of sympathy
So very wary of the masses and their Anarchy; Liberious ways

Solipsist - Is there no one you can see?
Even if she was presented burning?
Solipsist - Is there no one you can believe?
Even if Sophia was screaming?
Solipsist - Know you have killed and abused me
Imprisoned in your own  personal reality

DISTURBED CREATURE- Am I

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

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

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

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

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

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

Black and White

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

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

So let us go our own way…

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

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

So let us prepare for that day…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Butterfly

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

As the river flows

As the river flows

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

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

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

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

Pan and Satan

Pan and Satan.

One morning I was walking in my garden
When old Jupiter came up close to me.
And standing by his side stood fair Demeter
Who smiled at me so warm and tenderly.
She said “my son we’ve come to give our blessings
And we’ve a story we would like to tell.
Of how the great God Pan turned into Satan
And child I hope that you will listen well.

For Pan he was the god of natures beauty
And he wore no taint till Satan came along.
He’d play his pipes so gaily in the meadows
Though sometimes there was mischief in his song.

Then Satan said to pan “well I don’t give a damn
I’m going to steal your horns and make you me.
Then I’ll build a master plan and strike some fear in man
So always he will live in misery.
And that’s the way old Pan became young Satan
Yet still the old one dances deep within.
But if the two had never joined together
Then where would dwell the ugliness of sin.

1990

Thank God I'm lazy

Thank God I’m lazy.

People playing worldly parts
Strong in mind but, weak in heart
Trapped yet told that they be free
Creating so much misery
It’s all so hazy.

Politicians playing games
Trying to make us all the same
Feeding us with empty dreams
Such nonsense well to me it seems
It’s all so crazy.

I want this and I want that
This it seems is where it’s at.
It’s gimme, gimme, gimme all the time.
Ambition seems to be the goal
And brainwashed folk don’t seem to know
That being nothing is not a crime.

To gain prestige big plans are made
Yet such a price it must be paid
To gain the earth yet lose ones soul
Could make one rich but never whole
Thank God I’m lazy.

A Peaceful Sight

I sit among the audience of my thoughts
Upon a chair 
With my feet up high casually on a table
My senses, my breath, my heart rate is stable
Silence at this very moment is my mind’s favorite labor
The leaves they sway from side to side 
so graciously, it is my favorite sight
Beside me,
The cherking of birds is my morning cup of delight
In front of me,
The rattle of the clear crystal pool is the depth and constancy of a single thought
The clear blue sky is my happy tomorrow
On my face you will find no trace of sorrow
Such a peaceful sight I see
If only you could bare witness with me
To such a glorious and heavenly sight
Like A picture perfect,
Or a beautiful view in Peru
The glorious nature has set me at ease
I am calmed by the steady breeze
Yet the buzzing of my cousin
Is like the sound of a busy bee
She speaks to me of heartache and despair 
And the death of some distant loved one
She makes a noble and noteworthy declaration
To give me a kidney if mine decides to collapse
I smile at her with this carefree sensation
As I sit there typing and pretending to care
Tapping my fingers to a rhythm while unaware
Smiling a genuine smile and sighing a pretentious sigh
You want me to speak of wickedness and of madness
At this moment I am indifferent,oblivious, I genuinely Do Not Care
The quacking of a random duck 
Came casually as pure luck
Lazily I yawn, so dazed, and simply amazed 
 I am hypnotized
At this sight that left me mesmerized.

Miles

I write
my late night revelations
paint an image so clear-
so precise-
as if fine-tuned with a microscope.
I see the truth.
I now realize that what I need-
I want-
is YOU.
I don't know how I am going to make you see,
make you feel...
I need to make you know.
A simple touch is all I need
to delve into your mind and infect you.
But how to reach you?
You are hidden far away
within your own mind,
in maze of your own design.
Between us locked doors and endless traps,
mountains,
valleys,
rivers, lakes, oceans,
miles and miles of 
impassible terrain that keeps me apart,
keeps me from you!
We are two universes set to collide-
not to be destroyed,
but merge into one.
Set to collide, but keep missing our mark.
This is unbeknownst to you.
I keep the secrets within me.
How much longer can I wait-
how much longer until my silence
consumes me?
Until you break me?
I am deserted, alone,
left in desolation.
You are the answer to the questions,
the key to my freedom.
But you cannot reach me.
And you do not know what you are.
How much longer til my time runs out?

Words of Life

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

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


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

*chorus*

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

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

*Chorus* 

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

*chorus*

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

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

At night

At night I see a ghost
Where fears and doubts are high
It scares me now and then
And gives me sleepless nights

Tears run down my face
No one hears even my sigh
It worries me more than ever 
When I see the ghost inside

My pillow is my bestfriend 
That catches all my grief
That made me realized 
Created a ghost out of me

I hide no more from danger
I think I just survived
I'm now out of the closet
At night I'll never cry

It's Not Over

Don’t say it’s all over (cause it’s not)
“Sorry” won’t cover it…so don’t go on your knees and pray for my forgiveness 
Oh baby…don’t listen to the commotion…I’m done taking cover (it’s all for naught)
I’m plummeting in slow motion…into the remorseful pit…I’m plummeting in my nightmare’s abyss

I want to carry you through the night… 
I’m swimming in the ocean of my tears… 
My sodden wings lost its ability of flight…
You've been swimming in your distress for years… 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

I want to remind you to fight the good fight…
My misery pools are brewing inside of my head…
I’m backing away from the light & exploring the night… 
You’re giving in to sleep and I’m wide awake on my bed 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

Please don’t tell me…oh, don’t tell me…darling!
You’re giving up today… (I beg you to stay, despite your inner pain) 
I’m scared I might erupt – it could be quite startling!
Someday, things will change for the better… (Don’t turn the wrong lane)
I’m waiting for that day to arrive – perhaps it will wash away our dismay…

I promise you a tranquil reality 
I want to stray with you tonight 
I still have hope that He’ll set us free
I was wondering if you could stay the night
Maybe the Lord could grant us 
Pure, incredible delight 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we've plunged into our own pit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to gather…

Superficial Smiles

Superficial Smiles by Shane Cogan

A trapped house can be worse than a prison
Cell doors open daily, a sealed house door never
Guards who snarl or smile is a guard forever
They also torture, but you found your own prism
Selected friends are such a treasure
Deselect those friends at your leisure


Superficial smiles, superficial cries 
Superficial tastes, superficial wastes


Handshakes in the morning 
Sour milkshakes for lunch
Diluted conversations for dinner
Repetitive dreams again for bedtime

Small talk discussions over a croissant
Alcohol dimensions under a florescent
Frantic racing is your new norm
A lost cause, caught up in a storm


Superficial smiles, superficial cries 
Superficial lies, superficial allies


Silly allergies are your only sickness 
You deem painkillers to be your only cure
Subscription pills for the old highs
Illegals for the new lows

What is right in one place 
Deemed a disease or a disgrace
Solitude is your new pleasure 
Despair is a lonely measure


Superficial smiles, superficial cries 
Superficial spies with superficial eyes


Today's headline is tomorrow's forgotten story
Profits over people, with business in all its glory 
Che Guevara t-shirts or Guerrilla warfare neritic?
Revolutionary heroes or a Sunday armchair critic?

Mass television pictures replacing dialogue
Mindless headline people news is our new fog
What would you do now for a taste of reality?
Do you miss and crave my sensuality?

A frank remark is better than a false smile
Our historical heroes are now sadly footnoted
No longer accepted, no longer quoted
Smiles mean nothing; a false handshake is our new style


Superficial smiles, superficial cries 
Superficial skies with superficial eyes

Steed of Light

I watch you prancing, pawing earth;
Your eyes glow almost like a flame,
You toss your sculptured head so freely
And flounce, unchecked your flowing mane.

Born brother to the rolling prairies,
Your spirit kin to earth's four winds,
I gaze at you and vainly wonder:
Do you know how truly we are friends?

Do you know that deep within me
Dwells a soul loving liberty
And a heart that yearns and hungers
To run as you do, wild and free?

Have you noticed I'm a dreamer,
That my eyes see visions, bright,
And my spirit flies within me
A prancing, pawing steed of light.

Stone For Sand

I had an obscure feeling when I arrived
But I could not tell what was brewing inside
All around was complete darkness overshadowed
by a radiant glowing light forcing its way from behind 
Surely it wasn’t a myth or a parable 
They were spoken words written in plain language 
positioned in the middle of sky for everyone to comply.
Two angels held a scroll in firm position watching 
the deceptive world straining under its conceited weight
gazing steadfastly upon them.
One was weeping the other smiling
and a third moving around in circles
scraping residue from dried up wells.
I could barely make out those words 
but the message was an explicit warning
to put away dissension and stabilize the crumbling world
It expressed that God is still in control.
The weeping angel took the scroll and landed on a rock 
She dips the scroll in the tainted green  sea water and wept
for hours in the middle of the sea on top of the solid rock
she tore up the wet soaked scroll and scattered it into the water. 
Suddenly a portion of the sky turned brick red, 
Forcing powerful men and women to fled
Heat penetrating their naked skins
melting their arrogance
tormenting their conscience
and pulling every substance from within. 
Men haggling over men 
women scrambling over women
powers dismantling powers
forcing the oppressors to comply
and throw their filthy garments aside.
The angles have spoken
multitudes of them robed in white raiment
appeared on land exchanging stones for sand.

It Just Ain't There

I whisper to the snails
Who’d sooner die much less fail
There’s nothing left inside those eyes
As tears drop into pails

The light is warm but I can’t touch it
Till I pay the rent
But the man is hollering back at me
With just too much demand

But as I look up to the sky
The helicopter’s still there
Constantly judging me
A supersonic glare
And I know that we can’t win
We’re fighting for a freedom
That we know just ain’t there

I whisper to the men 
Who’d sooner die much less fail
There’s nothing left inside your eyes
As tears drop into pails

The light is warm but you can’t touch it
Till you pay the rent
The man is hollering back at you
With just too much demand.

PAGES FROM AN ERA



Into a garden sprayed by night's rain,
Jen  slouches under a dim lamplight
as the wind gushes on her divan
sweeping pages of a long era,
jotted down through crystal-clear memoirs
from her flawless hand, still radiant... 
while tendrils of a past causes
her eyes to melt in glass of evening.

She pauses between emblazoned lines,
a web of saga transports her musings
in a village where life detailed the pain
and glory of unwanted wartime;
the smoky air turning fruits into molds
as land raids wheezed without children’s sounds.

Quietly, Jen folds the sepia-book
to find beauty in her lit garden,
while cloudburst fades like distant remains...
then, washing the leaves of yesteryears,
she breathes in solace: a woman freed
by putting a name to her past angst,
ready for rain’s music of tamed sleep.

Nowhere Kind of guy

Nowhere kind of guy.

I headed for Australia in the year of sixty seven
I traveled, me on the good Fairsea
And the journey was pure heaven
The sea was wild and stormy
But it never bothered me
For I was off to face my destiny.

Then I became a soldier
 And they sent me off to war
As they filled me full of anger
So it was never like before
And so I welcomed manhood
With a soul that had been soiled
As deep within the savage child did boil.

Now I’m a nowhere kind of guy
And I don’t know where I’m going
Cause I decided long ago
That there ain’t no way of knowing
I guess a guy has got to keep on flowing.

Now here I am, and Vietnam
Was way back down the track
And I’ve done some things and I’m carrying sins
And I’ve suffered some way back
I’ve paid some heavy dues and all
And I’ve still got heaps to come
Cause what’s been done’s ,been done all said and done

Written in 1990.

CONFIDENCE


                                                 CONFIDENCE

                          The world is full of people trying to stand out.
                             But they don’t realize that they already do.
                          They try so hard to figure what life’s all about.
                      With all their piercings, Crazy hair, and fresh tattoos.
                           They miss out because of the worry they feel.
                         Will they approve of the way I dress, think, or act?
                           In the spotlight a few moments they might steal.
                    But some of the stupid things they do can’t be taken back.
                           I have a secret that only the few wise ones know.
                              Love who you are and forget what they think.
                             And all the good things in life will soon follow.
                              And you shall rise above all as the critics sink.
                                So meet the world with you head held high.
                                  Let them see the beauty that is in you.
                              Let them see your happiness and joy inside.
                   And know that nobody needs to love you more than you do.

Nature's Sigh

The Black butterfly waves away her adorations
All she seeks is seclusion, subsuming slave to mortification
The Dear Air is all she can breath, captive of imaginary dreams
The Beacon resonates, but the hope isolates
The Wasteland's silky fingers caressing the virgin's face

So she is now, the covet of the damned
Programmed to every victim's pain
Carrying the weight of every sorrow
Drowning in wrongs she does not know
But paradise is at loss; she must go

Nature sighs after the bite
All my hopes fading
Don't look at me with those sorrowful eyes
How do you know exactly what I'm feeling?
I'm just the ghost flower passing by
And you can hear nature's sigh

Would you care

Would you care, if I had to leave and go away?
Would you care, if I had to leave yo ass today?
Would you care, If I went and ripped up your sad half'a'heart?
Would you care, if I tore your whole life, ripped it all apart?

You beat me down too many times,
I  just cant see,
your face, when I am trying to hide mine,
I'm so scared,
when you make me feel like I've done something wrong,
I just cant breath,
When you stare at me, you hold it, oh so long.

Would you care, If I just packed my bags all up on you today?
Would you care, if I went and made it all my own way?
Would you care, If I just left your broke ass, mugged off, all alone?
Would you care, would you call me, sorry?, begging on the phone?

You hurt my heart just way too many times,
I just cant see, 
why I came back, when you  clearly wasn't mine,
I'm so scared, 
you played me, with the same old stupid song,
I cant breath,
all along I knew that this was just so wrong.

Would you care, if someone walked by and caught my eye?
Would you care, would you ever sit and wonder why?
Would you care, if you lost  every single part of me?
Would you care,  cause without me there simply is no we!

You want your cake and eat it too
I just cant see, 
how your gonna make this work for you?,
I'm so scared,
Of your girl finding out this way, its sad, 
I cant breath,
It's me, I'm the one who's looking bad.

Would you care, when your living by yourself and you are down?
Would you care, when your girl finds out you're just a clown.
Would you care, when I wipe my hands of you, I'm done!,
Would you care, this really isn't any fun.

I hope you can live with your mirror image, 
I hope you can live with the past, 
I'll watch you from afar,
I hope your mask can last.

Beyond the Frontier

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

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

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

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

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

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

12 days of kiss-mas

On the 12th day of kiss-mass my true love sent to me
12 dirty undies
11 socks a stinking
10 shoes a humming
9 shirts for pressing
8 trousers 
7 days of take-out boxes
6 flagons of beer
5 D V D's
4 mischievous children
3 dozen wine bottles
2 ex partners
and an engagement ring under the tree

I need you not

You want to be alone. You need me not.
 Your hand can find my hand and move away.
 When you are close, I blush, I feel so hot,
 But you’ll for sure get rid of me someday…

 You need to set your world where you’re a king,
 You need your space where all the stars are yours,
 Let all the winds the storm of freedom bring,
 Let all the keys unlock the heaven’s doors.

 I know you well. I feel the same. I do,
 But you’re so deep in your amazing space,
 That I give up, I’m leaving you with you,
 I hope, it was the last, the fastest race.

 I’ll spread my wings to fly above this all,
 My empty heart’s the only thing I’ve got.
 You seem so far, you seem so far and small…
 I want to be alone. I need you not.

Senle ve sensiz bir hic

Bir dag yamacinda ucurum hayatim senle sensiz bir hic
Yasam dersem kabulum agit yakilmis sevdamiza

Senle sensiz bir hic  bilerim  tasinmaz yasanmaz  nefesimiz

Bir cicek sevda yaylada ruzgarla esen
Kosma  olumune  desem  kimse dinlemez  
Ruzgarlar  sallar eser gullu  basma  bedenini 
Saklar saclarini yazmali basortusu dantelli
Akar bir nehir  sevdayla senle ve sensiz hic
Bir  koca cinar  bolunmus toprak yarik yarim
Amansiz nehir  akar  bolunur  delinen kalbim 
Senle ve sensiz bir hic  canim sevdam
Cok  canlar  oldu telef gozyasi oldu tasti  irmak
Cok analar yakti agit  kan kirmizi  irmak

Cok kahpe planlar hoyratca  goz yumanlar
Cok aci  kahkahalar oyunu  sessizce  oynatanlar
Senle ve sensiz alkis tutanlar bir hic  utancim
Gelecegim senle sensiz 
Isigin dusu  umidim cocuklarim

My Hands, My Heart and My Soul

Riding on a highway, hippy gypsy style,
Getting the past behind me, mile after mile after mile,
Until I feel free.

Songs on the radio, they always unwind me,
I love the way they flow, up, up and over me,
With nowhere to go.

It’s the little things in life that matter the most,
It’s in my hands, my heart and my soul.
You can travel by land, just sleep when you can,
It’s in my hands, my heart and my soul.
Let go and be free, your welcome to join me,
It’s in my hands, my heart and my soul.
It’s never too late to escape from that cage, 
To my hands, my heart and my soul.


Gave it up easily, with nothing to lose,
The love of a dreamer, freedom to choose,
A brand new demeanor.

Give me the simple life, I’ll sleep on the ground,
Say goodbye and make haste, now that I’m bound,
It’s only a matter of taste.

It’s the little things in life that matter the most,
It’s in my hands, my heart and my soul.
You can travel by land, just sleep when you can,
It’s in my hands, my heart and my soul.
Let go and be free, your welcome to join me,
It’s in my hands, my heart and my soul.
It’s never too late to escape from that cage, 
To my hands, my heart and my soul.

A Pub-ng We Go

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear… as merrily, off we go!

We’ll leave the frats, in the dust, and bring The Bun, merrily, along.
He had a great run, at Easter time, now he can let, the good times roll.
Who knows best, than a nest of Trolls, how to have, a really great time!
A Biker Bar should fill our sails, as we go, courting the best… of it all.

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear…as merrily, off we go!

The beers great, the girls’ first rate, I’ll ride a full-blown Harley Hog.
To ride them down, across the town, my hair, flowing behind, in the air.
But first we’ll make a new drinking song, betting on, who’s best, by far.
Biker Dudes, Trolls enthused, raise their mugs in unity, again, once more!

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear… as merrily, off we go!

It’s all fun, as with pool cues in hand, we try to, learn to play Eight Ball.
We’ll dance on the floor, and some on the bar, as rowdier we become.
But we’re the best, with glass in fist, as we sing our new… drinking song.
So don’t be glum! Here, come along, to laughter amid, such joyful fun.
 
Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear… as merrily, off we go!

We’ll have fun, then move along, as our song wins, and the tab is yours.
You can join, as comes, the next bar, and we’ll, start all over, once more!
It’s party time, until dawn, for Trolls can hold, great quantities of rum.
As drinking games come, we win every time, as the losers pay the bill.

Hey, Ho! A pub’ng we go… And I’ll bring along, those, Zany Trolls.
What’s better, than to drink, with friends, my Dear…as merrily, off we go!

(A drinking song for the pure fun it: sung like a pirate song clinking mugs.)

In Bloom

Written July 29, 2013


The wind blows the rainbows down
Turns your frown upside down
Then spins it back around

The sun hides the moon
Underneath its coat in bloom
The flowers came late this June

The rain in a teardrop
Falls like dew from a leaf
When she looks at me

See that look upon her face
Used to take her to the stars
Now she's headed back from Mars

Now that Venus loves her more
Wouldn't throw her to the floor
Like before

The bluesman

The bluesman.

The bluesman
He’s up there, he’s a star
As he clutches in his hands
A battered old guitar
The bluesman knows his own damned worth
He does it in his style
And folk they come from miles around
And have done for a while

The bluesman plucks those strings
And wails his old blues harp
Then comes in with his rusty voice
Maybe he’s flat or sharp
But no one ever notices
They’re caught within his spell
When that bluesman does he’s stuff
Then in his world they dwell

With the bluesman
You get just what you see
He’s not out to impress you, man
He’s busy being He
And when he plays, he’s ‘It’ my friends
He pulls you into him
The bluesman can you hear him now?
When all the lights are dim.

Cancer

I can't believe I haven't posted this one. I wrote it last year, can't remember the exact date. Anyhow it's a song. ---------------- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see them fall? You lose one you lose them all She's seen the cruel hearts of stone She's seen the cancer we've become So lost in worry we just fall down Underground we burn Till the last one's sure Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all Cut me out of this body! Cut me out of everybody! Grind me into little pieces! Tell them that I'm the reason- You know this world is cancer Without these prayers being answered It's been too long a ponder We wonder We wander Far from here Lost in fear Can you see me fall? You lose one you lose them all You lose one you lose. . . Them all

Reflections: Intellectualism

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

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

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

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

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

The truth hurts
ARMAGEDDON WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

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

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

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

YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN WARNED

For You And Me

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Introduction

hello my friend, stranger walk by,
borrow a moment, spare me your lie,
through pen of the narrow and mist of an eye,
below absolute zero, someone will die;
sentence to rambler, apple hereby,
flute of the meadow, mandrake will cry,
in front of the riddler second might try,
get out of here mortal,
exit near by-e.

angry as he strike out his pen,
get out of here demon, get out of this den,
in thousands of years how long has it been,
when scriptures wear sandals;
on meadow you land, many bear seasons,
stakes shall bend, lantern still burning,
your letter is send.

Lettin' go

Lettin’ go




I am here in my present
(Leaving behind my past)

I am hurting and I am a human being 

I long to be loved by a good man

I am a beautiful black ‘chocolate’ full figured woman I wear a 42-44D bra and am something like 210 pounds

Love me or Hate me; either way I am goin’ to love me so if you accept me and love me that’s good but if you hate then go on and hate me

Make the difference

As others smile u have frowned 
As others have cried u just broke down
u have no sorrow u have no pain are the lies we all tell today
As they scream
As they fight 
As they kick and hit
As they all hate 
u hide 
When all is lost when you see no hope 
All you see is the death or your fate
You have not yet discovered what you are destined here for 
but you have no desire at all to find out you my dear are in dought of your ability to scream and shout 
You have the will You have the power shout your thoughts from the highest of towers. You were put here to make a change how can you do that when you dont believe in fate when you have no desire you are able to use your pain use your sorrow and use your anger to make a difference yet you are becoming no different then what you now hate.

Where Wild Violets Grow

Where Wild Violets Grow

Scribbling these verses,
caressing your bare back,
simple rhymes,
flowing from my fingertips.


Scribbling verses,
sprinkling odes to fragrant promises,
your smile lightens the burdens,
off my heavy heart.


Scribbling verses,
soaked in countless kisses,
the moonlight waltzing on your skin.


Scribbling verses,
feeling you,
your love never ceases to flow,


through the streams of my mind,
to a place of our own,
where wild violets grow

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!

Iksiri zehir kendim

Ne dusle senle  gecti  yillar
Ne hikayeler  senle  yasadik birlikte
Bir gun yakin asik
Bir gun yabanci
Omur goctu boyle
Sanki  sen dusman bana
Hep birlikte yasanan  yillara
Kusmusun sevdasin boylesine
Soframdan  tat  almayan  sen
Yeni bir damak tadi  bulan ben
Sanki bilmem mi   gecmisimi 
Hic bitmeyen yanardag  ofkeni  
Ve siddetini yasadikca seni
Unuttum desem   unutsam desem
Sevgimle ortsem desem
Ayni bitmeyen ofke
Ne yapsam bilemem
Bu nasil hastalik  bende
Iksiri  zehir  kendim

WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ME

WHO ARE YOU TO SAY THAT IM SLOW.
WHO ARE YOU TO SAY THAT IM RETARED.
WHO ARE YOU TO SAY THAT I CAN'T READ.
WHO ARE YOU TO SAY THAT I CAN'T DO MATH OR COUNT

WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ME
NOBODY ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME.

WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME WHAT I CAN OR CAN'T DO.
WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME WHAT MY FUTURE IS GOING TO BE.

I see you

             I see you
We are one
Yet we understand it not
How can this be true
When their is so much
we disagree on
so many wonder

Oh friend
Life is great
If you see how
I see you


Breath in 
Breath out
To one air
All do same
colour red like a blood
All have same 
Yet we disagree
Cos skin differs 
In colour

Oh friend 
Life is great
If you see how
I see you


I want you to see me
Like i see you 
Not with a hate
Nor either with isolation 
For how can life go on
If we see each other 
With out 
the 4rules(l.o.v.e)
Of nature

Oh friend 
Life is great 
If you see how
I see you


I see you need a care
I see you need a friend
I see you need a life
I see you need some connection 
We all do

Oh friend
Life is great 
If you see how 
I see you

I see you like a God
I see you my brothers
My sisters like the best
I thought I could ever have
In life I chose to love you
All the time
Oh I wish you see
How I see you

Oh friend
Life Is great
If you see how
I see you 


Oh friend 
We are one to one just
Only we make life difficult
Is not your fault
Neither is it mine
But to whom that fail
To love
Just lift another
Value earth 
As we all see 
Together like
I see you 

Oh friend 
Life is great 
If you see how
I see you

Trapped

Night will fall and day will break
Angels weep for Heavens sake
Whispers fate - a babies cry
Time stands still for you and I

Feel the bit chafe at the reigns
Let the rust eat at your chains
Baby, it's your world
He's trying to map
That keeps you - trapped
Trapped - in the mind
Trapped - in the soul
Trapped - by that band of gold

Restless nights and weary days
Living in your restless haze
Where the night will surely go
Only you and I will ever know

Feel the bit chafe at the reigns
Let the rust eat at your chains
Baby, it's your world
He's trying to map
That keeps you - trapped
Trapped - in the mind
Trapped - in the soul
Trapped - by that band of gold

Leap with me into the night
Let your heart tell you what's right
A wedding band, forged in gold
Holds your heart 'til it grows cold

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.”

Freedom

He freed himself
From the human disease, 
Our misery, lies and 
Conformist ease. 

He pledged himself 
A life from hate
His god he trusted-- 
Embedded distaste.

He found the loophole 
Buried under debris, 
He found the key
Under conformity.

He freed himself from human illness 
He broke away from love and hate, 
His words of calm and deliberate stillness, 
Are words we do not contemplate. 

Though I hear him today, 
In those deep memories, 
I can hear what he would say, 
About his freedom... his discovery.

Escape

This is my escape 
I'm breaking free
This is my confession
I'm running away
Away from the past 
Away from the pain
I'm letting go 
'Cause I'm tired
Tired of this pain.
So,
This is my escape 
I'm breaking free 
This is my confession 
'Cause I'm running out 
Out of time 
So let me go!
'Cause I'm taking off now
I'm flying away
Away from the past 
Away from the pain
'Cause I've had enough
Enough of this tragedy.
So,
This is my escape 
I'm breaking free
This is my confession
No more to be afraid
No heartbreak
'Cause I no longer will take this pain!
Away from the past 
Away from the pain
So,
This is my escape
I'm breaking free
This is my confession 
I will no longer let you bind me!

THE REPOSITORY

The book, "Rilke's Book Of Hours" 
motivated me to breath glory
To not waste and have regret
experience now the repository
So when it's all said and done
and I look back on every day
I know I went the second mile
this is what I can say..

I was a guy not afraid to fall
a man who took every chance
Who lived life and had a ball
head over heels in sweet romance
I never once blinked at risk
looked every person in the eye
Accomplished all my bucket list
always told the truth I never lied
Gave speeches that moved crowds
proudly swam against the flow
In elevators I sang out loud
to hoarding wealth I said no
I gave generously to the poor
relational living brought intimacy
Then again I gave a little bit more
no fear of heights in what I could be
I took time to smell the rose
never worried but lived joyfully
Didn't procrastinate, quickly chose
forgave others because I was free

Authentic living I was a genuine friend
Never doubted God beginning to end!

Justice

I go by Derz
and I'd appreciate 
a minute of your time
to educate you with my words
of wisdom
excuse the slurs
I was higher than the solar system
that night was a blur, i was a victim
to the party scene schism
my actions are just a symptom
of rebelling against this crooked 
economical system
they try to warn you
about the horned dude
looking through the eye
at the top of the prism
no one gets out alive
something like a prison
a medieval purgatory 
a modernized reformatory
it extremely worries me
how ethnocentric  
the people of the world can be 
they only see what they want to see
what their minds have been brainwashed to  sense and perceive
what the media
justifies them to believe
they're ignorant of their intent
no matter what they say 
this territory isn't free
there is no such thing as free will
excuse me if I'm coming off as crazy 
I forgot to take my pills
but if there was,such,
a thing
we wouldn't come together, as angry protesters
protesting,
against our cities protectors
who are unfit in properly 
protecting,this community
and we, the people 
have seen enough
if it wasn't for that badge
you wouldn't be so tough
don't forget that you're still one of us
and it is unlawful
as well as unjust 
to kill innocent lives
of people who were loved
but no one can grasp and understand 
what the fuss is 
we don't mind, being blinded 
just as long as we get our justice!

Leave It All Behind

Leave it all behind,
Every thought and every emotion. 
Decisions blowing in the wind,
Losing sight of permanence. 

Let’s drive until the sun baptizes the sky.
Let’s drive until new cities meet our eyes. 
Let’s discover something beautiful about this waking life. 
Let me make you mine, 
Let me make you mine. 

It’s a menial existence when words cut so deep. 
You’re tearing me apart as we speak.
Words, like knives, cut ‘til I bleed. 
Watch me bleed out, 
Bleed out for you. 

Stained are the hands of the innocent,
With all the bloodshed they were forced to commit. 

Let’s drive until the sun baptizes the sky.
Let’s drive until new cities meet our eyes. 
Let’s discover something beautiful about this waking life. 
Let me make you mine, 
Let me make you mine. 

This is the end.
Last call, 
Last chance. 
Goodbye.

unnecessary chains

driving home
another late shift 
work long hours just 
to make dues
when the money I received 
gets paid back to you. 
lurking in the shadows
a man that has no soul
looking for ways to make
them like him more
his face is fresh I speak the truth
but justice isn't there...
all he cares is bonuses they set for him 
to slayer. 
corruptness lies where there is debt
and in our debt lies chains
the ones who say we're free are lame to think
its not a game. 
a joke, lies go up in smoke
as he goes home, with his bonus, alone.
wishing his dick was a little bigger. 
wishing the white girl loved him as much as she loves
the man he took away. 
Unnecessary Chains. 
Unnecessary Chains. 
his fresh robotic face
a disgust to the human race.

As The World Turns

No corner has comfort,
That lasts too long.
When I search for right,
I can't stop finding wrong.

I feel out of luck,
If it ever existed.
Why am I stuck
in the life that I live in?

I must confess,
And I will tell the truth.
I want the best,
Yet it slowly does move.

EASTER IS COMING

I can love you like a butterfly
be so soft as a gentle breeze
cause I'm not threatened by a tone
or criticism's contagious disease
I grieve for you like an orphan
a child scared and oh so afraid
You lash out into the darkness
my tongue will remain stayed

Long ago you saw the beauty
your spirit carried on wings
Loved to ponder life's essence
sought peace above all things
But difficulty arose one day
remember your fateful choice
To be blinded by circumstance 
sadly lose your lover's voice

Now with words you seek to hurt
but that sword has no effect on me
Because once I was the blind man
that blindness took me to Calvary
Between you and me hung Jesus
On my cross I finally saw the light
I'm forgiven.. Easter is coming
I now can love instead of fight!

*Dedicated to all the crazy uncles at the family reunion.

About the Poem: Thoughts from the recently forgiven thief on a cross about the other thief on a cross (still blinded by his sin), as they hung dying with Jesus between them.  When you've been truly forgiven, criticisms can never again harm you, so let it go!  
THE BUTTERFLY SET FREE NEVER AGAIN LONGS FOR THE COCOON! 

Just a thought that might be useful here in the Soup..

Coming Home Free

Keep a light on in the window for me
I’m coming home and soon you will see
Stare at the flames in the old fire
Let them make you warm with desire

I’m coming home free
I’m coming home free

I regret that I touched that money sack
I wish I’d just put it back
It’s not hard committing the crime
Yet it is hard doing the time

They gave me fifteen years I served ten
Yes ten in the grey dreary pen
I’m getting out Walking tall
Hoping that back there I never will fall

I’m coming home free
I’m coming home free

As long as I find you waiting for me
Holding your hands out to welcome me free
Then maybe the past can stay in the past
With you I will be free at last

If you are not there waiting for me
Then back in a prison cell I’d rather be
For the rest of my life to be locked away
I am hoping that you will want me to stay

I’m coming home free
I’m coming home free

EYE Don't See -Part 3-

My eyes
Witness your departure
My eyes
Are dripping with hopelessness…
My eyes start to blur…
Melancholy put me under pressure…
Is there a cure to my disease? 

You don’t see
The shards of hope that once brought us back together
Just let me search for safety
I’m strong enough to realize that I’m no longer
The weakest prey out there…

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me whimpering like a distraught puppy left on the train tracks?

I’m close to my demise…save me and take me home

Nourish me…and be my beloved friend

Will this friendship last forever?

Hopefully it has no end

Will this cheerful moment help us get along with each other?

Because of you…I feel the need to run 
I keep an eye on you – I worry that you’ll hurt yourself again
Because of you…My freedom is nearly gone
I don’t wanna be caught off guard again
Because of you…EYE can’t picture a solution for our vexing dilemma 
Because of you…eye can’t focus on my long-term goal 

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you sense that I’m giving in to failure? 
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…I can’t endure 
The hardships that you place upon me…
Could you boost up my confidence to overcome 
My atrocious anxiety? 

I’m just waiting for some sun
To keep me in good hands…
To strengthen me with perseverance …
I’m just waiting until His son
Leads the world outtah Egypt and reveals to us…
His radiance…His dazzling Kingdom – 
Vibrant with glee

Your undying sympathy dawns upon us
I’m overflowing with indescribable joy  
You’re a candle in the night…
We meet eye to eye…
What a sight…what a precious sight

Where I Sit

I am not going to think about it ,
Can't do much from where I sit.
    Wasn't me that couldn't agree,
We know who it's so easy to see.
    Won't say much to help you out,
It was your decision that's no doubt.
     You've done no wrong I can hear you say,
Always the same with you every single day.
      Telling me I am wrong and just no good,
I should have left you back when I could.
      Now I am stuck  so in love wit you,
And all you want is something new.
      The evil and wickedness that you  soe
Has touched just about everybody you kow.
      Living the lie and playing the deceit,
Preying on the kind and gentle those who are weak.
       The day will come when you will pay ,
For all those you hurt along your way.
        It's not always good to come out on top ,
Especially when you see it's only you that you've got.
        Live out your days alone , sick and afraid .
You just wouldn't listen to anything I'd say.
        I am sorry my dear but this you did on your own,
It's your turn to suffer and you can never come home.
        I'm not going to think about it,
Wouldn't do any good from where I sit.

The searcher

He’s a Pilgrim, he’s a Sailor
Now he’s up, and then he’s down.
And he dives into a whirlpool
So his life may turn around.
He’s a Saint and He’s a Sinner
He’s a King and he’s a fool
And he seems to live his lifetime crashing walls.

And he walks the lonely highways
That’s his fate, his destiny
As he looks towards the mountains
Feels the breath of mystery.
And a whisper tells him secrets
And he don’t know how he knows
And he always seems to watch the river flow.

But will he ever break on through?
Will he pierce the ceaseless din?
Will he tread the path of Angels?
Will the symphony begin?

Or be he doomed to falter?
Will he lose the blessed light?
Like a matchstick on the ocean
In a land as dark as night.
Will he fall into the abyss?
Never reach the other side
The gates of Hell be ever open wide!!

Children

CHILDREN

As expressions go, some obsolete
Taken for granted, often weak
A closer look, beneath the hood
Lies hidden truth not understood

Children, our future, it’s often heard
A common notion, but how absurd
For children grow, become full grown
Where are these fruits of seeds they’ve grown?

Mistakes were made along the way
Mistakes of old and yesterday
Followed footsteps, no changes made
Trusting that they make the grade

Aged thoughts I beckon thee
Like waves returning to the sea
Give way to change, release your hold
Let reason shine and truth be told

The future’s now, no time to yield
To future minds whose fate is sealed
Like brittle branches on winter trees
The outcome certain you might agree

In Greenhaven

Greenhaven.

I wake up in the morning with the sunlight on my face
As it glimmers through those Banksias
That thrive around this place
And it feels just like the country
Lots of trees and lots of space
In Greenhaven.

The shops are down the road a bit, but not too far away
And there’s a sense of freedom here, and everything’s okay
Oh! when that sun shines through those trees
At the break of a summers day
In Greenhaven

Greenhaven is the place for me
It lies just out of town
We have our beers and barbecues
When folk they come around
In Greenhaven

I love this happy home of mine
Where the sun shines through those trees
And the cockys scream as they fly above
So alive and wild and free
And I sit and play my old guitar
In this place just made for me
In Greenhaven.

Exist in Dreams

A dream that dances in waves, and mirrors all you do
So you dance, and hope that some day the song will come from you
This dream is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
The song is picking up speed, so it’s follow or fail alone

A flame that flickers in sync with the shadows by your side
The rain puts out the light, and causes you to hide
This nightmare is all that exists, and all you’ve ever known
But this song still hasn’t stopped, and so you dance alone

You cherish sand on the banks of a path winding through a storm
This desert trail is all that you see; too blinding to look beyond
This path is all that exists, and the only way to go
Holding close the sand as you sing, just so you’re not alone

The sand is part of the storm that makes you close your eyes
But now the wind starts to slow, and the scenery makes you cry
This life is all that exists, and the only way to go
The sand falls through your hands, and you carry on alone

A love that blooms into being beneath the darkest skies
Is a life that will venture out despite the lonely nights
So scared, but so unafraid to find what you need to be
Despite the fear that prevails, and tells you what to see

The flames steady and still, and a shadow kneeling down
The rain cleansing your heart as all your fears drown
The sand creating a path, and shielding you from pain
And now, with the wind at your back, you remember why you came

To dream a light shining out for all the world to see
To be more than you think, and beyond all that will be
To create a desire to be the creators of our dreams
To become the mirror of self, and reflect our unity

In a land of Christmas dreams

There’s a special place not to far - you know
A special place where we all can go
A place where dreams run as free as our mind
A place where we stop the happiest of times
To live our fullest at being who we are
To share and listen in each others beliefs of who we are.
To be happy being who we are

In a land of Christmas dreams
Is a special place for you and me
Somewhere to go and always see
How truly life can really be

Listen to our loved ones how we want to be heard
Understanding completely with out stating a word

Where giving is a pleasure with a hug and a kiss
Open minds and hearts and feelings as this

In a land of Christmas dreams

In a land of Christmas dreams
Is a special place for you and me
Somewhere to go and always see
How truly life can really be

For this beauty of freedom and dreams
Every night stares at you in your sleep
This giving and caring is special indeed
This giving and caring is shared between you and me

Expressing our gracious love for our friends and family
Always supporting our love and devotion
Being there for each other through times thick and thin
Always to return strong in message of the truth within

In this land of Christmas dreams
All of it’s beauty of freedom sings
Every night sings to you in your sleep
This giving and caring is special indeed
For this giving and caring of Christmas dreams
Is all behind the spirit of you and of me.

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

My heart is beating with upbeat delight 
You astound me…in every shape and form 
My spirit is dancing with unbreakable might
You surprise me…when you take my hand
And pull me outtah my jail-like dorm

And He dismisses me from my solitude…
My eyes are glistening with bliss… 
And I’m far from my demise… 
Only to find that there’s no need to feel helpless

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

Just protect me from any harm 
Let me make my own decisions…
To see the results in the long run 

You prize me as if I’m cherished like your carefree child
You don’t understand – I’m TOO foolish and wild
I haven’t even reached to full maturity 
But how eye hope to see myself grow and be set free
From the world’s mayhem
Is there a solution to this problem?

And I’m left with no answer…
My eyes are eager to see…another bright day 
And the night is coming to haunt me… 
I find myself slowly disappearing from sight…
When will God give me a purpose to fight? 
When will He feed me His awesome might? 

Just support me…especially during my downfalls
Please answer my calls!

And I’m left to venture off into His path…

Eye can’t escape my terrible nightmares 
Consider my calls of acceptance…my grief weighs a ton
Let me pour forth my tears – 
Do me a favor and cast away my fears
Steer me away from disorder and confusion

Eye can see you’re making great progress
You’re heading towards a brighter, superb future…

My eyes 
No longer witness oblivion 
My eyes
Looks beyond the earthly pain…
bEyOnD the affliction 

I spot a rope in the distance. . . . . 

Push aside the waves…and let me
Grab it this instant!
God feeds me His love…and treats me
Like a newborn infant!

Eye see my Father with brand-new eyes  
I feel rare content
And I feel hardly any resentment

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

The Rebel

Dank, cold, unperturbed indifference,
Untouchable, yet touching all,
Unresolved in meaning,
Still creating each and every fall,
Every whim and leaning.

Touché pas! A cry of weary hate,
And will not accept a helping hand,
‘Till death! Brazen adverse in face of fate,
And alone in piteous stand…

Lone wolf we cry, thy fate is nigh,
Yet stands he still resisting,
That love should die, that only tie,
In error still persisting…

Beyond What's Seen

You do not know what I see
I see you crying next to me
I see your pain, I see your tears
Through your laughs, and through the years
Past your mask I see your face
You are hiding in this place
Trust in me, I won't let you fall
You don't have to hide at all

Open up what's in your heart
That is the place I will start
Open up your eyes and see
All that's left is you and me
In the end you'll see the light
Come on, I don't want to fight
Together we will make it through
Come on. Now, It's me and you

Now you can start to feel
How much this love is true and real 
behind your eyes you keep your pain
It's all locked up in your brain
Come on. Now, just let it out
It's okay to scream and shout
I will help you through and through
I will always be with you

EYE Don't See -Part 2-

My eyes
Refuse to see tragedy
My eyes
Marinate in dread…unable to embrace ecstasy 

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s sagging…from endless mourning  
And I’m close to my demise… 
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just let me be
Leave me alone…hand me a gun

I yearn for unspoiled glory
To make me feel perfect once more
I yearn for flawless serenity
To make me feel no regret…don’t ignore
My calls…don’t hang up on me

You don’t see 
What damage you’ve done
Just hear my plea
Listen to my excruciating cries…
Listen to the truth, not the malicious lies  
Our journey has just begun   

And I’m left in my solitude…
Do you hear me weeping?
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace draw near?

Eye can’t handle the stress
Let me release my horrendous distress
Eye can see you making that same mistake
At least MY life isn’t at stake

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…do You feel my lament
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…Stepped on like cement
I’m aching with discontent… I abhor this torment    
When will peace scrub off my fear?

I can’t believe my eyes
Your guiltiness flows into me…
I can’t believe I fell for your lies
Your heartless action rape my mind…you don’t see
What my EYES see…

You’ll never see 
How much pressure you put me under
Unchain me from this chamber
And watch me flee…

When will you be set free?

Don't come on like a Guru

Don’t come on like a Guru
 
Don’t come on like a Guru
Like you know all of it
Don’t say, you know the answers
It will not help a bit
There might be some in foolishness
That want to follow you
Yet all In all, you be like us
You don’t know what be true.

You might have read a lot of books
But that don’t mean a thing
These words, my friend be borrowed
No wisdom do they bring
No book will make you holy
You have to seek it out
You have to understand yourself
To know what life’s about.
 
Guru’s, well there be so many of them
You might think you be filled with sacred gems
But in the end you’re lost
Just like the rest of us
The one who says he knows, you just can’t trust.

Don’t come on like a Guru
With your mind all filled with words
A lot of folk might listen
And then you will be heard
But in the end you’re fooling
Yourself and that be all
Don’t come on like a Guru
No, don’t you be a fool

My Cure

You sucked the poison out of me,
I feel free though I can see
The inspiration has also left my head
As I lay awake in bed,
But I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
I’m holding onto this escape,
Forgiven for my mistake,
You’re all I need, breathe you in,
You’re under my skin,
But I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
This cure has my head spinning,
I’m falling and I’m flying,
Hold onto me, let me go,
I don’t know,
Which way to turn now,
Your eyes have me held,
Spellbound,
But I don’t mind,
Why should I mind?
 
Take your time,
I stand in line,
First up, last one standing,
You speak words, commanding,
But I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
I tell myself this isn’t good,
Isn’t how it should
Be but you’ve held me tight
And carried me through the night
And I don’t mind,
No, I really don’t mind.
 
This cure has my head spinning,
I’m falling and I’m flying,
Hold onto me, let me go,
I don’t know,
Which way to turn now,
Your eyes have me held,
Spellbound,
But I don’t mind,
Why should I mind?
 
Behind these eyes,
I always believed in lies,
The pain stung me like whips
But you cure me with your lips,
And I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
I’m burning up inside,
Want to run, to hide,
But your light seeks me out
And shows me what love’s about
So I don’t mind,
No, I don’t mind.
 
This cure has my head spinning,
I’m falling and I’m flying,
Hold onto me, let me go,
I don’t know,
Which way to turn now,
Your eyes have me held,
Spellbound,
But I don’t mind,
Why should I mind?
Why
Should I
Mind? ...

My Chance

Not talking to you gets easier everyday
Like a scar fading away
And the memory of you
Is better than talking to you, yourself
I've chained you up
Put you on a shelf
I don't feel anything
Is that good?
This numbness gives me more peace than you ever could
I don't want you anymore
Is that understood?
Gave you too many chances than I should
You were never good for me
I was blind then
But now I see
Now I have MY chance
My chance to be free

That Unpromising Smile

You give me that unpromising smile
I hear your murmurs and cries
Please stay awhile…stay awhile…
You’re a lovely child in my eyes

Angels do fly
Like eagles in the free-spirited sky
Darling, don’t worry – 
Don’t be afraid of the currents of the wind
Baby, I’ll carry your load – 
Release your happiness 
Promise me you’ll be like this
As long as we both depend on each other
I won’t deny that I think fondly of you
Oh, and I don’t know the reason why
We fly so high
In the aqua-blue sky

You give me that grumpy frown 
And it signals something’s wrong
I give in to gravity – we’re spiraling down
Spiraling down…and you’re wearing a woeful gown
You’re everything I love
You are the miracles that sprinkle from up above 

Angels do fly
Like eagles in the free-spirited sky
Darling, don’t rush things through – 
I’ll swallow my pride…
There’s nothing to hide
There’s nothing to hide
Don’t be afraid of the currents of the wind
Baby, I’ll carry your load and I’ll be by your side– 
Release your cheerfulness every single day
Promise me you’ll be remain this way 
As long as we both depend on each other
I won’t deny that I think highly of you, my darling angel
Oh, and I don’t know the reason why
We fly so high
In the aqua-blue sky

Promise me one last time
That you will be brave
And grow like a tree flourishingly
You didn’t lose hope and you held on to the rope
With a good grip
You’re a strong child
You made my heart dance to your priceless tune 
I feel so soft and distasteful like a prune 
We will hold each other tight soon
Before the afternoon…
While you took wing, 
I watched you soar away…foolishly
I won’t bid
You a farewell!
Where does your heart dwell?

SOLDIER BOY

      SOLDIER BOY
Are you dreaming of Sun Valley fair?
It's a road you've traveled alone.
Remember Bergdahl, when you get there
We will always welcome you home.

Tell your Father, the reason you'd gone.
If you left your friends in God's care.
Remember, Bergdahl,  you've been alone
Longer than we thought you'd be there.

God is our reason for taking your hand.
Is your blood not that of our own?
We'll be all forgiving, if you understand,
Why we'll always welcome you home.

Welcome home, Soldier Boy.

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major


Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,

swirling,

to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 
kisses,

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 
passion,

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 
hues,

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 
rhyme,

pleading,
forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

Cruising

Cruising down the two lane
smooth fresh blacktop
slamming gears
these new tires probably wont last long
back roads all night long
no troubles, my worries are all gone
T-tops in the trunk
this old birds gonna fly
I'm gonna fly tonight

 somewhere out there
don't remember where 
I left a memory in the open
it was a spur of the moment
high and lost in a moment type of thing
I remember the smell in the air
the breeze threw my hair
chasing the lights in the sky
foot on the floor... I was cruising ...  
somewhere out there

therapy...I never needed a shrink
just something with a big block,
maybe a drop top with a Muncie or a five speed
addicted... a habit I can't break
a rush I can't explain
walking a fine line..
maybe... just maybe I'm out of control
....tonight I'm cruising

 somewhere out there
don't remember where 
I left a memory in the open
it was a spur of the moment
high and lost in a moment type of thing
I remember the smell in the air
the breeze threw my hair
chasing the lights in the sky
foot on the floor... I was cruising ...  
somewhere out there

Book of Will - Will

Welcome to the first entry in the book of will
Where lyrics and emotion mix to show how i feel
Bred from stars i shine like a man of steel
Looking for a master? Believe me i fit that bill

An intricate mind blessed with lyrical explosions
Not just poems, i rap with deadly repercussions
My brain transmits like an electrical storm
Immense intellect risen from years of pain and scorn

I'm complicated, mind a little bit mysterious
Playing tricks on you, have you thinking that you're delirious
My syllabus for this is that i speak my mind in rhyme
Backed by a musical sound my fingers unwind

Some hate me because my mind a little bit complex
Who knows what it will think out next
Syllables catastrophic to the intellect of misinformed
Leaving people devastated, destroyed after a storm

I am Will Will i am and i Will terminate
Shocks to the crowd as they try and relate
I welcome you, keep track of this book of will
It will surprise you when you see the way i feel

Trying to Look on the Brighter Side of Life

I need to find a way to open up to you…open me up like a corridor in the Castle of 
Freedom – why are you stuck in place while I am free in space?
I need to grasp reality…I never really saw the good, brighter side of reality in the 
first place
Someday, you’ll stray with me into the fields of fervor-blossoming flowers …I 
pray…I pray that our happiness will never last!
Somehow, you’ll empathize what kind of hardships I’m going through at this 
present time and what issues I will be dealing with in the future…time’s ticking away 
oh so fast
*Chorus*
Oohh I knew you would come back
Oooh I knew you would come back to me…
Sometimes, I wonder if you love me or if you just pretend to love me so
Oooh I knew you would come back
Ooooh I knew you would come back to me…
There’s days when I feel positive when you’re around, but I have to-to go…
Oooh I knew you would come back
Ooooh I knew you would come back to me…
Someday, you’ll stay here with me…I pray…I pray that day would come someday
Somehow, you’ll see me through the pain…dismiss the ghosts of the past…
Oooh I knew you would come back
Ooooh I knew you would come back to me…
Someday, you’ll sit here and say what you wanted to say to me – there’s no need 
to feel dismay
Some say “you must pay the price one way or another”, but I say take your time 
and let your happiness never last
Oooh I knew you would come back
Ooooh I knew you would come back to me…
I’m no longer that magazine, alone on the magazine rack 

V.4 (bridge): I searched for you night and day
S-so dedicated to you…on my own, I was gravity-bound…
All along, you were by my side along the way!
S-so afraid to lose you – I’m not a champion; lost and never found…
But, I’ll keep trying to look at the brighter side of life
What’s the point of being a victim to depression and loathsome strife?

You're a friend, not a foe
Let your affection and effulgence show

Serene Shores

-3/7/14 and 5/2/14-
The waves of the sea and the screeching of the seagulls 
Mix together like coffee and cream
I feel like I’m livin’ a dream
I walk barefoot on the warm, warm sand
I don’t really understand
Why you lay a hand on me…
Is it because I’m as mournful as the sea
Or is it because I’m the waves that swivel and dive down in ecstasy?
I don’t quite understand
The reason I feel the city’s pressure and hardness
They are cemented in the abyss

Serene Shores…
Sails in silhouetted slumber
Serene Shores…
Falls into flamboyant floors
Serene Shores 
Guides me gently, giving me grand advice – 
“DREAM ON, DEAR CHILD!”

The sound of honking is heard unexpectedly… the sound emitting out of the car
It was so uncalled for! It was going way too far!
I feel like drifting away in a deep sleep, carelessly hitting the seafloor…but I’m wide awake instead
I would like to lie lifelessly and tranquilly…I ascend from the water’s surface in disappointment – where’s my head?
I can’t completely comprehend
Why I am more in tune with nature – it could mend
A shattered soul…
A torn, forlorn heart…
Like my own

Serene Shores…
Sails in silhouetted slumber
Serene Shores…
Flaps its fantastic wings, favoring the light of freedom!
Sadistic Shores 
Pushes me forwardly persistently, poking at me pessimistically– 
“WAKE UP TO REALITY, YOU MORON!”

I ponder about the future and its many mysteries
There are clues in the surface of the ocean
I’m too busy trying to pick them up as I go…I wonder about the meaning of the past memories
I squander my time, getting caught up in bittersweet emotion

Glo

Written September 11, 2013


Well I was just a boy
Living down in San Fransisco
In the city by the bay
And I wanted more from life
Than my childhood could give
Every time I crossed a bridge
The whole town burned to the ground

And then one day
I met you down by the blood bank
In that sketchy part of town
Where the hipsters turn around
And drugs roam free
Just like you and just like me
Just like how we used to be

You are my archangel
You sing to me, Gabriel
You tell me where to find
The gravel on the street
And you hold me to the ground
When I hear Peter call for me
And the lights rush to the scene

As I lie here in the alley
Sweet dreams of crystal valleys
Waltz deep within my mind
As the canvas fades to black
And the vultures sweep below
Much like falling dominoes
Set in motion by the glo

I Don't Want to Bleed

I Don't Want To Bleed

Written by D.W. Breidenthal (J. W. Earnings)

I don't wanna leave without you
I don't wanna lose my head...
I don't wanna bleed without you...
I want you to burn away my dread.... 

I can feel eyes on me...
And I'm reminded of past poverty
I start to bleed and heart pumps rapidly with anxiety

I can see you through the glass
I know our love will never last...
I can see you by my side in the reflection of the water
I can still sense your presence and you reflect my shameful past
That I would rather drop off at a nearby trash bin...but you are running too fast

And yet you still won't let go of our past sorrows and thoughtless decisions
I thought you had the balls to fulfill our desirable missions
I still see you in my dreams...
in my midnight visions

Our love was my drug and my heroin...but you gave in (to your heart's desire)
I was addicted to your blissful love...I was drunk off of the love Potion
'Cause you were my plastic admiration

I can see you in my dreams... sometimes it makes me feel so damn upset
'cause
I don't want to breath without you
I don't want to face my fear
I don't live ANYMORE
I don't want to leave you behind...I just don't wanna bleed again

I know our love was a temporary satisfaction..
I can see you by my side...every where I go. I have a feeling you are  not over me yet
I can still sense your presence and you reflect my wrong actions
I've committed in the past...but you ought to forgive me and give me one more chance

BORN AT 47

BORN AT 47
I am born , now at the age of forty seven
I am surprised, as I seemingly feel
The same fresh air of thrill
May be how the freedom starved folks felt
In the historic year of nineteen forty seven.

The early days passed away with distracted aims
The appreciated hidden talents were just like some game.
The happy go lucky nature, never led me to a special feature
So many chances, so many goals,
Looked like a  long way with many a pot holes!
The path of an achiever had never been so easy,
A slight change in decision, made my life busy.

I acted many roles, as if on a stage at motion
Mother,daughter,tutor, partner, all with great devotion
Some deeds were applauded, some remained unsung
Some feathered me a perfectionist,but most seemed undone.
Mixed feelings went side by side,creating an unknown apprehension
The prized acts of my progeny were my only aspiration.

Years passes by,responsibilities changes,
Days became less tiresome, nights full of avenges.
The bejeweled life filled with ethical deem,
Left me a non living, without any esteem.

In such a lifeless forlorn evening
A little friend held my arms
And led me to the path of silver lining
I am born again..........afresh anew
In an ecstasy of finding out
The hidden and lost views.
A part of my own soul,
A part of my heartbeat
A daughter turned friend nurtured my dreams
In a fashion offbeat.

Now I have a new little world of my own
Where nobody can question or show me a frown.
I fill my heart with music
I fill my mind with words
I feel the urge to step ahead
Of the never ending crowd

So what,if I am not an opportunist!
So what, if I am not a protagonist!
I'm still enjoying my budding fragrance
In a golden dawn, breaking the cloud of mist

For freedom

For freedom of man
For freedom of all
I pray
I cry
Like the rain of june
For freedom of man
I rise
Like the sun of noon
For freedom of man
I write
For freedom
I chant
My tune
For freedom of man
My song for freedom
Of man
For freedom of all

7th Heaven

Taken for granted
Everyday gone
Holding you back
Can’t be what you want
Now you’ve given up
You’ve broken free
You see everything differently
You have a choice, got make up your mind
Got no tape to stop and rewind
You’ve walked up to the final step
Pressure ain’t over,
Can’t make a mistake
Show it to the world
Show who’s in control
Let them know who you are
Show that you will fight it off
Tell them-
This is 7th heaven
This is ultimatum
This is your spotlight
This is where you shine bright
This is what it comes down to
Letting the future take you
Anywhere it wants to
This is your last chance
Your final call to freedom
Time to open up a door
See what is in store
Spread your wings and fly-y
Holding your head up high
Not backing down, not asking why
This is 7th heaven
You’ve come a long way now, can’t back down
You’ve got the world in the palm of your hands
You control it all, the final choice maker
You have what it takes, you got what it needs
All you have to do, is show it to the world
Let them know who you are, let them know where you are
Because you’ve reached the top:
This is 7th heaven
This is ultimatum
This is your spotlight
This is where you shine bright
This is what it comes down to
Letting the future take you
Anywhere it wants to
This is your last chance
Your final call to freedom
Time to open up a door
See what is in store
Spread your wings and fly-y
Holding your head up high
Not backing down, not asking why
This is 7th heaven

Everybody knows, everybody sees
That you are getting off your knees
Everybody talks, everybody thinks, 
How in the world did you win?
So tell them:
I’m in 7th heaven
I’ve reached ultimatum
I’m in the spotlight
I’m shining oh-so bright
This is my last chance
My final call to freedom
I’m opening a door
Seeing what the future holds
I spread my wings and fly-y
Holding my head up high
Not letting anything bring me down
As I’m here, not on the ground
This is my time to shine,
My ultimatum…
This is 7th heaven.

Crone

The warmth of the sun
Is gone with life
For now she's the one
Who rules these nights

(CHORUS):
Dark Goddess
Bringer of Death
Bringer of Darkness
Bringer of Less
One of the Darkness
One of the Night
Bringer of Wisdom
Bringer of Might
Come on swift wings
Great Goddess please come
End all my sufferings
The circle is one!

Waters to ice
The flowers have died
life covered in lice
For summer has lied

(CHORUS):
Dark Goddess
Bringer of Death
Bringer of Darkness
Bringer of Less
One of the Darkness
One of the Night
Bringer of Wisdom
Bringer of Might
Come on swift wings
Great Goddess please come
End all my sufferings
The circle is one!

Great Crone
Goddess of Death
Don't leave me alone
Pull me out of this mess

Winter has come
with death you now bring 
with darkness of love
Let freedom now ring

Death is a freedom 
Death is a light
Death is of wisdom
We return in the night!

(CHORUS):
Dark Goddess
Bringer of Death
Bringer of Darkness
Bringer of Less
One of the Darkness
One of the Night
Bringer of Wisdom
Bringer of Might
Come on swift wings
Great Goddess please come
End all my sufferings

As I hear peace ring

Although the day is snowy and cold
Although the day is windy and bold
Although the streets are icy I’m told

I hear not a thing
As I only hear peace ring
Peace whispers saying barley a thing
As I silently smile to it’s warm tones as it sings

The day seems as night for it is so dark outside
Uninviting so cruel and not willing to hide
Never ending darkness it seems is all this day brings
Clear visions approach bringing the light
As I hear peace ring

Forgiveness to this day
As I hear the bells say
Ringing for peace and a brighter day.

Living Kingdom

A memory coated in blue
Of dire times; a castle of gloom
A basement filled with the buried dead
My throne within, painted in red

My tower gone, I stepped out alone
In to the mist - an attempt to atone
My basement torched, ignited by grief
With monsters dead, I no longer sleep

That kingdom crumbled in youth
The walls I built made enemy of truth
But still I stand, a victim of self
A treasury lost, it was traded for wealth

The silence turned into words
From inner self, out of this world
The mirror’s glass shattered by light
The darkness cleansed, granting me sight

A memory I leave in the past
For what is gone has brought me at last
To a place clear and true
This garden is my kingdom renewed

Let me break

Make me forget about this,
How beautifully I was falling,
Convince me it was my mistake,
There was always no one to rely on,
And no one to fight for.

Look into my eyes again,
Speak your lies, and
Die in it.

Make me forget your face,
Your standing there with no move,
Make me forget about you,
The poor illusion,
The wall that doesn't speak,
The life without breath.
Let me break.

Don't ask me to explain.
In darkness I do stand again but
This is my zone, my home.
This is my strength.

Let me break.
Let me forget about you.

Your Love Is Always My Favorite Love

Your Love Is Always My Favorite Love –Chapter 1-
Your love has been concealed in a special place
In my heart, your love is always a favorite…it’s a dream of reality, not a ludicrous myth
And don’t let me get started with your pretty face
Always lightening the load…lifting up my frown – let us have fun and get it over with

Your love is like sipping into the most scrumptious coffee
With the finest, fanciest cream brewed with it

Your love has been concealed in a special place
In my heart, your love is always a favorite…it’s a dream of reality, not a ludicrous myth
And don’t let me get started with your pretty face
Always lightening the load…lifting up my frown – let us have fun and get it over with

The door of bright opportunities is left ajar…you see?
Will you slide right in or will stay in place, throwing an “I’m-confused” fit

Your love has been concealed in a special place
In my heart, your love is always a favorite…it’s a dream of reality, not a ludicrous myth
And don’t let me get started with your pretty face
Always lightening the load…lifting up my frown – let us have fun and get it over with

Thank you tremendously from the bottom of my young heart
For always being there by my side no matter what obstacles come our way

Your love has been concealed in a special place
In my heart, your love is always a favorite…it’s a dream of reality, not a ludicrous myth
And don’t let me get started with your pretty face
Always lightening the load…lifting up my frown – let us have fun and get it over with

I knew you would be my best friend and guide from the start
Whatever you do, do not give up, smile wide and shine on...like the grand day

Your love has been concealed in a special place
In my heart, your love is always a favorite…it’s a dream of reality, not a ludicrous myth
And don’t let me get started with your pretty face
Always lightening the load…lifting up my frown – let us have fun and get it over with

Captivity

I was captured at a young age
Heart filled with pain
Mind filled with rage.
I waited for a chance to break out
But too confused
Filled with fear, flooded with doubt.
After a few years I broke free
Only to be captured again
Locked up, indefinitely.
I never got to fly on my own
In captivity is how I’ve lived
These walls all I've known.
My children will never see captivity
For they belong to the captor
And he has set them free.

Used As An Experiment

Used As an Experiment

THE SILENCE IS BREAKING MEEEE….CAN’T YOU SEE?


V.1: Strong AS STEEL, wrapped up with silver, heartfelt ribbons
Give it to me – the rope of hope
You smoked me out like a cigarette…
Used like I’m an experiment…I mope…I mope…
I’ve been ruined a thousand times
Yet, I stayed strong – I never cried a tear

(pre-chorus)
You’re getting by – I’ll let you through and go ahead and commit your 
crimes!
I have no fear in my young heart…I don’t bottle up fear
And I ain’t gonna shed a tear for you 
I’ll keep searching for the light with or without you
(pre-chorus)
You’re getting by – I’ll let you through and go ahead and commit your 
crimes!
I have no fear in my young heart…I don’t bottle up fear
And I ain’t gonna shed a tear for you 
I’ll keep searching for the light with or without you

(chorus)
What am I supposed to do? 
Your hate internalized in me…
Don’t ask me to change – I sift out every single lie
Because I won’t stop believing in the Lord Most High
I burned in the dense flames, 
I churned…in the ocean of blames…
Remorse, calling me names

V.2: I bleed…you were my disease once upon a time
Visiting rehab in my head…
Addicted to you like a drug…
Abused and moved by you….
I don’t care about me anymore…
Disaster unfolds, trapped in your scorching RIBCAGE…
Restoring rage….you called me hideous names behind your breath
I’m like an absurd bird, longing to fly out of her cage
Now, I get you…I get your motives of abandoning me…. 
You neglected me…you stubborn, attention-seeker
You never listened to my acknowledging complements 

(pre-chorus)
You’re getting by – I’ll let you through and go ahead and commit your 
crimes!
I have no fear in my young heart…I don’t bottle up fear
And I ain’t gonna shed a tear for you 
I’ll keep searching for the light with or without you

(chorus)
What am I supposed to do? 
Your hate internalized in me…
Don’t ask me to change – I sift out every single lie
Because I won’t stop believing in the Lord Most High
I burned in the dense flames, 
I churned…in the ocean of blames…
Remorse, calling me names

V.3: You ditched me with heartless selfishness in your heart – you’re a 
devil! 
Your lips soaked up the poison in your heart…it cements
Deep inside of you…deep down inside…
Wait for me, so I can keep up with you…
I don’t care about me anymore…
Disaster unfolds, trapped in your RIBCAGE…
Restoring rage….burning wild like wild sage…
I’m like an absurd bird, longing to fly out of his cage
Don’t discard me – give your heart a break
Don’t hurt me – for Mount Heaven’s sake!

(pre-chorus)
 You’re getting by – I’ll let you through and go ahead and commit your 
crimes!
I have no fear in my young heart…I don’t bottle up fear
And I ain’t gonna shed a tear for you 
I’ll keep searching for the light with or without you

(chorus)
What am I supposed to do? 
Your hate internalized in me…
Don’t ask me to change – I sift out every single lie
Because I won’t stop believing in the Lord Most High
I burned in the dense flames, 
I churned…in the ocean of blames…
Remorse, calling me names

V.4: Loving you ain’t easy, that’s for shore…we never were a fine pair (you 
only lived for your own satisfactions)
Blameworthy – I seem to be these days
Get up from the ground and think better about your actions (For all I’ve 
stood for, you were never appreciative…I swam lonely in the pool of misery 
and despair)
Next time, leave the front door…
I’ve been wandering in the maze of bewilderment
Find your own way out of my labyrinth of lament
Dare to wonder where I’ve been?
In the cave of sin…caved in by sin…
Getting devoured in the lion’s den…

(pre-chorus)
 You’re getting by – I’ll let you through and go ahead and commit your 
crimes!
I have no fear in my young heart…I don’t bottle up fear
And I ain’t gonna shed a tear for you 
I’ll keep searching for the light with or without you

(chorus)
What am I supposed to do? 
Your hate internalized in me…
Don’t ask me to change – I sift out every single lie
Because I won’t stop believing in the Lord Most High
I burned in the dense flames, 
I churned…in the ocean of blames…
Remorse, calling me names

V.5: I don’t care anymore…
Disaster unfolds, trapped in your RIBCAGE…
Restoring rage…burning bright like a star with a tattooed scar
It feels so wrong to be in the dark, so far…so far…
Away from your charms…your warm, cuddly arms…
So far, I’ve been digging deep in your soul…
Anxiety banging at my skull…skull…
In my mind and heart again
Forget and forgive 
Feed the flames of uncertainty
You don’t deserve to die or live
Where shall I flee? Free me…

(pre-chorus)
 You’re getting by – I’ll let you through and go ahead and commit your 
crimes!
I have no fear in my young heart…I don’t bottle up fear
And I ain’t gonna shed a tear for you 
I’ll keep searching for the light with or without you
(pre-chorus)
 You’re getting by – I’ll let you through and go ahead and commit your 
crimes!
I have no fear in my young heart…I don’t bottle up fear
And I ain’t gonna shed a tear for you 
I’ll keep searching for the light with or without you

(chorus)
What am I supposed to do? 
Your hate internalized in me…
Don’t ask me to change – I sift out every single lie
Because I won’t stop believing in the Lord Most High
I burned in the dense flames, 
I churned…in the ocean of blames…
Remorse, calling me names

V.6: Yet, I stayed strong – I never cried a tear
I’ve been ruined a thousand times
Used like I’m an experiment…I mope…I mope…
You smoked me out like a cigarette…
Give it to me – the rope of hope
On my own, feeling like I don’t belong – wrapped up with blue, heartless 
ribbons


THE DISTRESS ABYSS IS SUCKING ME UP – RELEASE MEEEEE….

Waiting

Break me down, build me up
Turn me around; teach me to never give up
I’ve been kicked around and I’m feeling it now
I’ve been pushed and pulled and it’s bringing me down
My walls are closing in
My mind is breaking within
I can feel my heart begin to collapse
I can see the broken pieces shatter and crash
It’s hard to see beyond this closed door
It’s hard to move locked inside walls of four
There’s a break down in the system here
The path to take just isn’t clear
I’ve been free falling for a while now
Trying to move but can’t seem to go
Coasting in an abyss of lies and bitterness
Every fiber of my being screams, “Rid me of this!”
I can feel the end of the road meet up under my toes
My fingers start losing grip and I step toward what I don’t know
Blinded from the truth I find I must take a leap
For my hope to be reborn and my soul to keep 
Every step I take I risk it all
As I quiet my soul and wait I gain it all

Bottom

Bottom
 Author Dana Redricks
 August 21, 2014

I came from the bottom
 Though I’m not at the top
 I’m somewhere stuck in
 The middle; my life is a riddle.
 Hey fiddle-faddle.
 This days are so long; I try to
 Stay strong, and manage on my own
 Fiddle fadle my life is a battle.
 People thought that I would stay at the bottom,
 But my life is one step from the top;
 I’m praying to God I don’t drop.
 I started from the bottom; though 
 I’m not at the top; I want stop
 Until I reach the top; it’s like pop-pop
 I want stop until I reach the top.
 It’s like fiddle-faddle trying to keep my
 Head above water trying to paddle, and
 Life’s trying to ride me like a saddle.

Midnight Confessions part 4 - a collaboration with Honcho Mars

No one's there to wipe away the tears
I'm here for good for you
I'm always there - just call me...you'll remain in my heart for years
Just don't be blue...don't be blue
Please, baby baby - don't be blue
I'll find your other shoe

V.4:
I must confess
You hold a special place
Within my heart
Is where you should have been 
All through the years
I must confess
Under tons of stress
Hiding this love
Like a thief in the night
I cried a river
In my heart, in my heart
Deliver…oh deliver
Me from temptation that’s been deceiving me from the start
Earning misfortune
Singing a sad, gracious tune
Running. Running. Running. Running in the sun . . .I have allowed
Myself to breathe in the air of mystery...far away from the cheerful crowd

Ch:
I’m nothing without you here…but I will have no fear
Living this lie…refusing my cries
Frozen inside and feeling kind of numb
I feel dumb…well, it’s a bummer…
Wiping away the pain 
Wiping away the tears
I ran because of fear
But I must spill the secrets
(I am here
Here I wait)x3

I memorized your smile
I wait for it for a while
You sang me a lullaby with sugar and spice style
You and I should run the extra mile
You're stronger than you realize 
You're not alone
You're not a failure
At least I've found your other shoe

Massacre in the Cove

Blood in the sea, the ocean is red,
dolphins and whales, harpooned and now dead!

Where do I begin to describe how it feels? 
These countries, this destruction they try to conceal! 
Are we so hardened that we can no longer see? 
Their natural environment is where they should be.
Not captured for amusement on a world stage,
where you pay for the right, to see these animals enslaved.
If you realized that they endured so much pain, 
would you support these shows all the same?  

Blood in the sea, the ocean is red,
dolphins and whales, harpooned and now dead!

It's the ignorance of the masses that pay large sums of money, 
to watch these intelligent creatures lose their sanity. 
The big corporations are not stupid, nor brave, 
they count their profits, as you watch these creatures, swim in their grave.
They’re just filling the pockets of those who do not care, 
they lie to make you think, it’s all about animal welfare.
Big money they pay, these countries to capture and destroy,
these creatures and their families, so they can exploit. 

Blood in the sea, the ocean is red,
dolphins and whales, harpooned and now dead!

Research has shown that a dolphins’ brain 
is highly evolved, twice the size of any human. 
So next time you go to one of these shows, 
where you pay lots of money and you think they don’t know! 
Take time to think about these beautiful creatures, 
how they were captured for you to have your small pleasures.
If you think they are happy swimming in a small pool,  
then all I can say - you are a fool! 

Blood in the sea, the ocean is red,
dolphins and whales, harpooned and now dead!

How can you feel comfortable taking your children to see,
the destruction of life, that should be free in the sea?
So will you still take your children now that you know? 
Will you continue to exploit these creatures just to see another show?
If you agree that these creatures should be free,
then please will you join this protest with me?
Teach your children with your actions, so they can see,
respect for all creatures should come naturally. 

Blood in the sea, the ocean is red,
dolphins and whales, harpooned and now dead!

Stand together as one, united and save, 
these beautiful creatures from their sorrowful grave.
Humanity should be ashamed of the things that they do,
this could be likened to the hunger games, one day it could be me or you.

Their families are dead!
The sea it is red!

Being Free On CD

I'm not a puppet on some strings...
don't even think of wedding rings..
life's too short for me to be....
nothing other than being free...

anything other than being free...
crowds the joy that freedom brings...
Life to me is being me...
nothing other than doing my thing...

Spare me the likes of freedom bound...
becoming a fool or someones clown...
I don't ever wanna be tied down...
nor on a finger wrapped around...

Anything other than being free....
clouds the joy that freedom brings...
life to me, is being me...
nothing other than being free...

I'm not a puppet on some strings...
don't even think of wedding rings..
life to me me is being free...
nothing other than doing my thing..

Spare me the likes of freedom bound...
becoming a fool or someones clown..
I don't ever wanna be tied down..
nor on a finger wrapped around.

Spare me the likes of freedom bound...
becoming a fool or someones clown..
I don't ever wanna be tied down..
nor on a finger wrapped around..

Life to me is being me...
Nothing other than being free..
Life to me is being free...
Nothing other than being me.

Breaking Free

Free bird you’re flying on your own
Sinking slowly scared and alone
It’s time to take the plank out of your eye
It’s a time of reckoning, its do or die
Pick up the pieces of this lie
String it back to the truth and ask yourself why
Look in the mirror it’s time you’re examined
Search your soul it’s not quite as you imagined
Broken, incomplete, not where you want to be
Fake, insecure, as lost as can be
Lay down your will, sacrifice your desire
Give it all up, be refined by fire
Strongholds come crashing down
The strings are cut and peace is found
Free bird you’re flying in the truth
Holding on your breaking free

In My Life - Quit Whistling the Blues, You Mockingbird

I’ll love you, even if you have strayed into the darkness Stop whistling the blues, you mockingbird – whistle with your might your marvelous tunes of accord and faithfulness! I love you from the bottom of the ocean to the heavens above I’ll love you – I won’t get over you and you’re my love at first sight – you were and still are a dazzling, surreal sight – you kiss me and I’m overwhelmed with passionate bliss I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with me I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse Before I met you…of course I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone Before I met you, I was on my own V.9: My heart bled with grief from the inside When I saw you, grief-stricken by the death of your friend My heart beats for you alone – you were always by my side Be sad and distressed no more – I will love you, even in the end My heart beat’s beating for you – you are such a thrill My heart aches for your love My heart thumps with victory and marvel I’m mesmerized by the mere sight of you – you’re as gracious and elegant as an angel above *chorus* I won’t give credit to myself for saving you from the flames of abominable, taunting fate – I want to say that I’ve unchained you from the death’s snare But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal the truth of what I feel for you deep inside In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave I was caved in by the cravings of my heart The darkness once ripped me apart But, you repaired me and I recovered pretty fast So, please listen up! I must tell you about my good and bad past Fear doesn’t exist here Get a grip on the rope of hope All anxieties are gone We dream on like daydreamers, awaiting another great, delight-illuminated dawn I’ll love you until my life is no more I’ll love you, even if you have strayed into the darkness I love you from the bottom of the ocean to the heavens above I’ll love you – I won’t get over you and you’re my love at first sight – you were and still are a dazzling, surreal sight – you kiss me and I’m overwhelmed with passionate bliss I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with me I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse Before I met you…of course I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone Before I met you, I was on my own V.10: We welcome the dawn with open arms – it will do you no harm Greet all positive, good news with happiness You are my lucky charms, my love – your hands are so, so warm Stop singing the blues…stop whistling the blues, you mockingbird – whistle with pure gladness Quit making us quarrel with madness!

Believe In Me - Part 1 of Cherry-top Bliss

Kiss me goodbye and depart from my arms…
You won’t bring me down, you cruel, heartless tragedy’s gravity
Abyss seeps into your avarice-tortured soul…dismiss the deceiving charms,
Trying to chase away your happy times spent with me
I’m denying the bothering truth of losing you…
Good news – my friendship love for you is as fresh as morning dew

Pre-chorus:
I will squander my time now and forever
(Are you an evil, fallen angel?)
Until I meet you eye to eye again
Our departure came to soon…our future’s a blur
(sarcasm: Oh you must be a sweet, beautiful angel –)
Come on & get out of the lion’s den!
Release me…I need to let go…
Believe in me…reflect on me…
Release me…let me go with the flow
Let me grow and see…the light at the end of the tunnel
There’s other fish in the sea…

*Chorus* 
I need you to ascend from your debris – let’s dance the night away! We will 
arise from our ashes like a fervent, blazing phoenix
Tell me if I’m as handsome as the lion that’s graceful, strong and 
courageous…I know for a fact that you are dangerously magnificent and 
gloriously precious
Believe in me…reflect on me…let’s push away the worries that want to ruin 
our night spent together…God has two hearts to fix
I love it when you wrap yourself around me like my own personal, warm 
blanket on this moon-drenched night – you are so gorgeous…so virtuous…
you’re an arduous angel…there’s a halo above your head…you’re gifts, talents 
and miracles are so marvelous. . . need I say more? You give me cherry-top 
bliss

Lightning flashes in your eyes…
Daydreamer…sweet daydreamer…
Melt away the sorrows and the corrupted lies
Oh beloved believer, oh you dream weaver ~ !
Burn away the chaos and commotion…I want you to smile wider
I want you to spread your wings like wildfire
You’re my one and only desire…you’re my fiery rose
You’re the golden apple to my eye – you are precious poetry, not bitter, 
poorly-structured prose 

Pre-chorus:
I will squander my time now and forever
(Are you an evil, fallen angel?)
Until I meet you eye to eye again
Our departure came to soon…our future’s a blur
(sarcasm: Oh you must be a sweet, beautiful angel –)
Come on & get out of the lion’s den!
Release me…I need to let go…
Believe in me…reflect on me…
Release me…let me go with the flow
Let me grow and see…the light at the end of the tunnel
There’s other fish in the sea…

Sing To Me, Some Blues

Sing me a old down-home song;
Sing to me some blues.
Syncopate the drums, sing loud and long.
Sing to me some blues.
Tell of people, from a homeland ripped,
Packed like sardines, cross the ocean shipped,
Remember to me bodies broken, bloodied and whipped.
Sing to me some blues.

Sing to me a cotton-field song;
Sing to me some blues.
Moan the story of a people done wrong.
Sing to me some blues!
Taken to the block, rubbed down with oil,
Sold like a beast to bear burdens and toil,
Tell how our blood watered King Cotton’s soil.
Sing to me some blues.

Sing me one of them old slave-timey songs;
Sing to me some blues.
The field hands’ chant and the pickers’ moan; 
Sing to me some blues.
How the children were sold while, mother’s did plead,
Of how we were raped and made to bleed,
When dying was just one way to get freed.
Sing to me some blues.

Sing me a work dawn to dark song.
Sing me a little blues.
Make that bass walk like a sharecropper, steady and strong.
Sing me some hardworking blues-
About how the ledger book replaced the chain;
About how the labor was all in vain;
The more debt paid, the more debt gained.
Sing to me some blues.

Sing to me, a freedom flight song.
Sing to me, some blues.
Tell of a cry for freedom so strong!
Sing to me, some blues.
Sing about no longer moving to the back seat.
Sing about sitting at the counter to eat.
Sing of bombs in the churches and dogs in the street.
Sing to me some blues.

Sing to me, my people’s song!
Sing to me some blues!
Sing of the struggle that still goes on
Sing to me, some blues.
Tell me the story of four hundred years,
Tell of the losses, the pain and the fears,
Sing loud of strength forged from suffering and tears.
Sing to me some blues….

Play yo harmonica, son….

In My Life - I Once Bled Out Remorse

I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse
Before I met you…of course
I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone
Before I met you, I was on my own

V.7: Give and you shall receive 
Ask and you shall be given…give, don’t grieve…
Grieve no more – we’ll be riding on a serene shore
Hasn’t God promised us a wonderful afterlife?
Hasn’t God promised that there is something far greater 
than this life?
I must repay you for everything you have done to me
Now, I live life to the fullest – 
I’m unafraid of what lies ahead
I’m sheltered by the seething storm and its harmful, 
shocking aftershocks

*chorus* I was never that confident enough to say that you 
saved me from the death’s snare
But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware
That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal 
the truth of what I feel for you deep inside
In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave 
In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave
I was caved in by the cravings of my heart
The darkness once ripped me apart
But, you repaired me and I recovered pretty fast
So, please listen up! I must tell you about my good and bad 
past
Fear doesn’t exist here 
Get a grip on the rope of hope
All anxieties are gone
We dream on like daydreamers, awaiting another great, 
delight-illuminated dawn 
I’ll love you until my life is no more
I’ll love you, even if you have strayed into the darkness
I love you from the bottom of the ocean to the heavens 
above
I’ll love you – I won’t get over you and you’re my love at 
first sight – you were and still are a dazzling, surreal sight – 
you kiss me and I’m overwhelmed with passionate bliss 
I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with me
I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse
Before I met you…of course
I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone
Before I met you, I was on my own

V.8 I need you, I want you, I grieve with you
I implore you to stay with me
I crave you…I bleed for you…I desire you to come back to me 
someday…or I’ll be a darker shade of blue
You are precious to me and you’ll always be
You’ll always be
You’ll always be a peace-abiding angel to me

*chorus* I never had the voice to declare that you saved me 
from the death’s snare with evidence – no one would care 
unless I mention them and praise them – now, that would 
be considered fair these days – these people are giving me 
vacant, who-cares stares
But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware
That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal 
the truth of what I feel for you deep inside
In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave 
In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave
I was caved in by the cravings of my heart
The darkness once ripped me apart
But, you repaired me and I recovered pretty fast
So, please listen up! I must tell you about my good and bad 
past
Fear doesn’t exist here 
Get a grip on the rope of hope
All anxieties are gone
We dream on like daydreamers, awaiting another great, 
delight-illuminated dawn 
I’ll love you until my life is no more
I once bled out remorse until I saw you confidently soar

Our Bodies Destroy

Veins like branches. Arteries.

The spindles that bind and lace them.

Optic nerves in my eyes that reflect

The pattern of the leaves.

Dissolving into my (open) pupil.

I absorb into my tissue

The grass’ dewy spit.

It smothers my vision

Green. Green. Green.

It has pierced my heart

And left me open. 

It pours out while they pour in

Each beat matches the howl of the wind

And as blood pumps, the leaves begin to fall.

The Earthworm Keeps His Hair

The Earthworm Keeps His Hair

Do you ever wish for a second, that you were an earthworm,
living in the soil, the slightly colder part of the world?

You could be happy there, where your oxygen didn't come from polluted air!

And lazily soaking up vitamins, and being apart of the life in living, was 
your only concern, or care.

You might find content in knowing that your values were much more valuable than 
the people above. Who are aimlessly trying to find happiness by ripping out each others own hair!

You'd know you were alright down there.

All the secrets from the fresh water, and the quiet hare, about what really matters here, you wouldn't even need to share!

I often wish I were an earthworm for a second. So I could stay sane, and not get
oppressed for simply possessing my natural hair!

Shake this colour blue

Woke up this morning...

watched the sun come up...

No fear in my eyes...

...I got freedom on my mind...

...God damn shake this blue...

...the fall out...I could shout...

...I am here to face another dawn...

I breathe the nearer...

I won't allow the inner to steal my
secret dream...

...born to shine...

...shake off this blue...

...got freedom on my mind...

I see the moon in your eyes...

...this dawn alone - this freedom...

I can justify...the way I look...

...the way you feel my reply...

...sometimes when the the sun
comes up...I feel the dream...alone...

...alone...in this dawn...this dream
comes true...

...I'll tear down the mirror not
to look at you...

for this truth I carry inside...
this truth believes...

...without pretence no lies...

...for in the dawn we all shine...

Let Freedom Ring

I Have a dream, his words echoed round the world
that one day every little boy and every little girl
would walk together hand in hand
As brothers and sisters in a colourless land

A dream that one day this proud nation
Would finally eradicate segrigation
that no one will be judged by the colour of their skin
instead on the chracter that lies within

Let freedom Ring from stone mountain in georgia
Ring from the peaks of california
Ring from the land of the pilgrims pride
Ring from every hill and every mountainside

A dream that the state of mississippi
Will one day understand the true equality
and live and work for the greater good
and treat each other like we know we should

A dream that we stand side by side
Hold on to our dignity and cultural pride
and walk together to a positive end
I have a dream today my friend

Let freedom Ring from stone mountain in georgia
Ring from the peaks of california
Ring from the land of the pilgrims pride
Ring from every hill and mountainside
