A poem for YOU

In this world of Uncertainties I’m the man that you can trust And in my words of sincerity That my love would never last. And if you could only feel, what i feel for you You can ask me “why?” so you can see the truth Like our love that tightens the rope, Like a light that would give us hope. As you watch the dark skies Let me grab the moon for you, And as I catch the bright stars That’s the way you can see me through As this planet turns as it always will And things go wrong and you don’t know what to feel Hold my hand for it will make us strong Like a wind, we will carry on The wind blow that sings a hymn for you For they know what does love means for the two Love is blind, and not deaf So how’s success if you’re not ready to bet? In this poem with full of rhymes, A full of love, Babe can you be mine? I don’t expect too much from you Why should I? If you complete my whole. “Till death do us part” that’s what they have said But why do struggles crash them ahead? Don’t ask me when my love will last, To count all of our quarrels, is that a must? Now and Forever is all that I promise No day dreaming and without reminiscence As the matter of time, as the time passes by Together we stand, together you and I
A poem for my Girlfriend for our anniversary :) pls comment and rate... you are free to judge and criticize my work :) God Bless

Reason

You're the reason I love this music,
You're the reason I joined the movement.
Five shots in one night,
Sweat after a big fight,
We're just living life.
The stage is on fire, these folks love it,
My memory is a playlist -- filled with your hits,
My heart is a drum beating to when you say things.
You're the reason I love this,
You're the reason behind your lyrics,
You're the reason I appreciate
The wonderful moments your videos create.
I was floating on misery, until you caught me,
I was filled with envy, until I became me.
You taught to see the light,
You're the reason there's a bright in my nights.
You're reason I came here to write this,
You're the reason I follow the club scenes.
You're the reason the microphone is a song on it's own,
You're the reason I held to my own.
You inspired the kid,
Now I'm going to inspire some kids.

AM GLAD YOU DO

___I'm glad you do___

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

In the history, those days won’t soon be forgotten
‘till this time, your words still worth a fortune
They will go nowhere; they will be with me forever
Those nights we shared, they will grow in me as ever.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

As ever, you're the light I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel at the fore
You're a heroine, that heroine of the war.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You set me free and still stay by me
You let me feel… the fresh of where I be
You succor to the battle you do not begin
You let me live… though you do not commit a sin.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You're my light, the one I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel I met at the shore
You're that queen, my queen for sure.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

I'm glad about what you do
You make my heart brand new.
I'm proud of you
I'm glad you do...

Love or Help

You live to love, When you love to give. That life you never had Like forever, had no wealth. Still had a hand to help. All I have is dreams for myself grand plans for world and words to rhyme with strength. The world will change, it depends on range of rage or love we raise. Well thats a phase of world, where we stay some for months, some for days or its a game we play and score to glee. All above, We live to love and we need to give.

WHAT MORE CAN I SAY


BY STREET CRIES

DEAR FATHER GOD I COME BEFORE YOUR THRONE 
NO INTERCESSORY PRAY JUST ME ALONE

I LIKE TO START OFF BY GIVEN PRAISE TO YOUR NAME 
THANKING YOU FOR CHANGE
ITS BY YOUR LOVING GRACE THAT MY LIFE HAS BROKEN CHAINS

NO MORE DEEP DEPRESSION OR PAIN
WITH PROGRESSION I SLOWLY OVER CAME
THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT CAUSED UNBEARABLE SHAME

EVEN THOUGH LIFE IS'NT PERFECT I WONT COMPLAIN 
YOU SEE ME THROUGH WHEN IT STORMS AND RAINS
CAUSE OF THAT VICTORY I PROCLAIM 

THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB IGNITES LIFE IN MY VEINS
ITS SIMPLE AND PLAIN OVER ALL CREATION FATHER YOU REIGN
SACRIFICE OF THE SON MAKE JEWS AND GENTILES THE SAME 

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IS THE BLAME
THE RESULT IS ETERNAL LIFE TO GAIN
MY SITE YOU REARRANGED 

POURING OUT BLESSING FROM HEAVENS WINDOW PANE 
FORGIVING MY TRANSGRESSIONS REMOVING THE STAINS
YOU SEE ALL THAT I DO YET YOUR LOVE STILL REMAINS
AMEN

Wanderlust

The birds glide, I don’t know why
It gives me reason to sing
So who am I? What can I bring?

The trees grow, the waters flow
To take us far from here
So who are we? Why do we fear?

In all the glories shown to us, 
We must give in to our wanderlust
To make amends for wrongs we’ve done
Inspire the dreams, in everyone

The lambs leap, the willows weep
To show us we can dance and cry
Don’t live a lie; just ask why

The oceans latch, seashells laugh
There’s always an escape
To the martyr’s smile, on the sun’s sweet dial

In all the glories shown to us, 
We must give in to our wanderlust
To make amends for wrongs we’ve done
Inspire the dreams, in everyone

Don’t let it fade,
Don’t hold it down
The sky is open for us now
Just let them fly,
Those hurts we keep
Inspire the heart, inspire the dream! 

In all the glories shown to us, 
We must give in to our wanderlust
To make amends for wrongs we’ve done
Inspire the dreams, in everyone

In everyone
Inspire the dreams, in everyone


*This song is a collaboration with my older brother, Robert, who was inspired by two hawks soaring around each other earlier today. Younger brother, David, implemented some sweet harmonies that makes this song really special! *

Never giving up (Revised)

(Verse 1)
There’s an aching in my back
An my knees are buckling in
My body’s hurt n bruised
friends r’ say ‘n take a step back ‘n relax

(Bridge)
got so much on my mind  
faster and faster I here myself say
I cant give up when I’m half way through
pure determination drives me hard and true

(Hook)
Never giving up
I can see it now the sun is shine ‘n on me
Never giving up
I’m almost there the inspiration I need

(Verse 2
The devil can try to slow me down
Putting all those boundaries road blocks round
But without a flinch in my face
I’ll jump up move and around 
 
(Bridge)
My destiny is calling to me 
Got lots to accomplish no time to tire
There’s a sunrise coming up in my face
My dreams are right there I’m following through

(Hook x 2) 
Never giving up
been a long time but the sun is shine ‘n on me
Never giving up
I never looked back now I see inspiration in front of me

Starlight

My eyes were on the ground today,
My heart kicked into dust.
My soul felt full of tears today,
My spirit crumbling rust.

And so I dragged the dog and me,
Into blackness on the hill.
And left the village bright and busy,
For the darkness, soft and still.

Up the rise my steps stepped slowly,
Nightfall: silent, soft and sad.
But on the crest the breeze burst freely,
Rippling, running, laughing, glad!

It tucked my hair behind my ears,
With fingers fine, so I could see
The black night fling a thousand stars,
To pave my path through dark debris.

And then I felt His touch of silver,
And I knew He had my hand,
Felt Love melt the icy shiver
Round my heart, a steel cold band.

A distant dream

A distant dream
Keeps  calling me
A distant dream
Keeps  calling me

I say, "How can I ?"
It says,"Yes you will."
I say,"You are a stranger."
It says, "I am your life."
A distant dream
Keeps  calling me

Doesn't let me sleep
Says," I am not meant for it."
when I am down
Makes me smile from up above
A distant dream
Keeps  calling me

I say,"You are not  my world."
It says, "Is world enough?"
Keeps me going
And sees that me I m through
A distant dream
Keeps  calling me

It gets closer and closer
remains a no distant dream
And paves the way to 
Another distant dream.........
A distant dream
Keeps  calling me

A distant dream
Keeps  calling me
A distant dream
Keeps  calling me

The Golden Poets

Poets are like gold these days
their beautiful sayings and touching ways
tell such stories of kindness, drama, sorrow
things of  the future like many tomorrows
they are so passionate about what they do
they let out the most humble of feelings with which to do
to meet hearts and souls suddenly and release the many of you
with sincerity.  They have a way of grabbing you and making you cry
with the deepness of pen and emotions flying across each sentence and why
their sad is so sad, their love is so deep, their laugh is so real, the blue of the sky
they say like we need to hear it, we're so near it
it becomes dear to us and then becomes clearer
we hang on each of their words and wait for more
we love them and can't get enough, "don't shut that door!"
We'll wait for them, buy their books, escape through them
sit back and relax in a tub full of bubbles and it feels like a sin
she loves him, he loves her, they astound me with feeling
then they quit on each other and they send me reeling
how perfect and the suspense and the beauty of it all
I'd love to call the author and ask questions and make more calls
I love it, then I can't take it, they are so real in every way
I want them with me and invite them to stay
how can they right so perfect so feeling and such
it's got to be more than just a freaky thing or luck
they capture it so well they are so very talented too
to take you places you always wanted to go and see through
the camera all about them and this takes you there and snaps
pictures and makes you feel like it's no way a trap
but a thing of beauty and you know you'll be back
they are so beautiful,( all these poets ) so special each one
you'll  laugh and cry and be amazed with the feelings of fun
they are so valuable in life, don't be without them
they will take you all over the globe and back at the gym
I have favorites, too many to say
I'll read anyway, all of them one day
they say it all in my heart and my soul
they are my strength should I be told
I love them you see, they are pure gold

More Than Love

I've looked in eyes so deep they made me soar
through all the gifts of life, this much and more
to challange me to things that could not be
unless had been aroused the very soul of me.

I've seen the smile that makes the heart to sing
and raise me to the best that life can bring
to be the very most that I can ever be
and write each word her smile has ever put in me.

I've breathed the very same and fragrant air
and for a moment had this thing to share
with she, who made my life to soar above
the limits of my life, and so much more than love.

Yung MCs

Hook: Here's the truth. We gon shine. Yung MCs and that's no lie. Coming up. To our door. Yea we got them flows galore. (Repeat x4)         Verse: Guess who just jumped on the phone. Riding to a new metronome. With his sickish flows. He's hysterical. So scientific, alchemical. And everyone knows I'm genuine. I'm stacking do like innuen. Time for you to tell all your friends that this yung mc is stepping in. The rap game poor. Needs a switch in economics. Cuz a lot of these suckas still talking bout the chronic. Youthful intelligence, call it Malcolm in the middle. You old brothers sit down. Try to learn to widdle. Cuz these yung MCs gonna leave you frikazied.  We a whole new breed. Give the people what they need.  We a brand new sound. From a dusty ghost town. Reborn from the ashes. It had burned to the ground. This yung brother yurns. For the world to hears his words. Because the rap nowadays is so absurd. But I assure you this. When I walk into the room. Put my mouth to the mic. And straight up kill it on a tune. I'll come with a style that'll match any vet. Rhymes way swift  5 blade like Gillette. The level I stand will never be met. Cuz you fly bird. Yet I fly jet. And honestly when we on the scene you hear the sickest similes. Slicing beats with symmetry that cause the haters ears to bleed. I take the light you try to keep. Cuz all your words are obsolete. It's night-night. Time to sleep. Close the crypt. Rest in peace.

Fighting Cancer

Every day I am fighting cancer I'm stronger then it and can process faster.  It's funny to me how it works but I am going to show it defeat.  It can knock me down and hurt me but I will always be standing on both of my feet.

I can live with it or without it. It doesn't matter to me.  Hopes and dreams, sun's and breeze, night and day laugh with play I can live for another day.  I can show cancer I will be a winner, so it better out of my way.  Because I am going to be the one to be fantastic, just like a beautiful sunny day.

I feel sick and my bones feel weak as sticks.  But my heart is nice and strong like a stone, I have a family that loves me at home, so I know I am not alone through the struggle I am facing.  I am fighting cancer and it is kind of risky.  But I will win this fight and I will be able to sleep in peace and silence tonight.

It's a challenge though I guess it's just hard times in Idaho or all the world and that's intense.  This cancer thing just makes no sense.  But I can be stronger and get along and hopefully live longer. This is my story and hopefully it doesn't end out wrong.  And thanks to those who show me love.

I have a dream but every day that I breath it seems to extreme.  I have courage, power, and one day I will rise higher than a tower.  I am just a little girl who is whiter and more precious than a real pearl.  I am fighting cancer and I am trying to run faster so I can win and have cancer lost in the wind.  This is my dream and hopefully I will win. . .

To You My Soul Is Bound

I have wondered long on how it would feel
If true love I ever found
Would I know in my heart that this is the one
To whom my soul would be bound -
Is it to you that my soul is bound?

How should I respond to the words you speak
Can I know whether they are sincere
Am I able to tell by the sound of your voice
As you whisper in my ear?

When you look at me so lovingly
With that twinkle in your eye
It stirs my heart and lights my soul
There are times it makes me cry

I am overwhelmed at the depth of your love
How tender you are to me
And I think to myself - can this really be true
Or is it just fantasy?

Are my fears misplaced -  Do I wonder too much?
Am I using my doubts as a crutch?
Should I open my mouth and reveal to you
Just how deeply my heart has been touched?

I'll let fear and doubt go now - and trust in our love
For I know I have finally found
A treasure of love burning bright within me
And to you, my soul will be bound
Yes.  It's to you my soul is bound!

I'm Comin' Home

Well, I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
Buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

And I'm high on constellations.
And buddy, I've got relations.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

Now, you see it your way.
And baby, I see it my way.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

'Cause I'm high on country music.
And my mind, it won't refuse it.
The memories of our love.
I'm comin' home..

SEX ANTIDOTE

Quiet whispers   
whispering about sex
sex is natural   
everyone's whispering about sex
masculine and feminine energy
male and female sex   
let’s talk about it     
let’s talk about sex
souls dating
souls mating
I’m first  
he’s next 
he's staring at it 
going at it
no calls, no text
lose the negative stigma 
associated with sex
come,  come      
sexual education is up next
here’s what we need to know
admire the body  
it inspires growth
be kinky
blindfolded, suck on toes
no shame in it      
play with it
see where it goes 
sex is not to be put to shame
sex so good 
I call out his name
`oh, God  
his name
sex so good   
no shame     
sex so good   
no blame 
sex is an antidote for emotional pain

The Wedding

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

MARCHING FOR DIGNITY




Medals on frames stood upright and straight,
Like guns marching on bloody road to Death March
At eighteen, he bore the pellets of war’s cause
Fingers wounded by splinters from a grenade

Spawned by raw courage for freedom’s glory
He counted black hours guarding his troops;
Piloting aircraft and landing on muddy swamp 
Worse was the order to kick his dead friend, Paul.

Black nights fed thinner ribs with brisk attacks
Riddling air with roulette of mortar sounds,
Yet country’s honor soared higher than gray winds
A testament for a man of lofty ideals.

Tales of grit, battle scars wrapped in dignity
A body resting on heroes’ graveyard, our flag rising;
Until the end, code of gallantry filled life’s moments
Of one general, dear Dad, your spirit walks with me.

I MADE ROOM FOR JESUS

The window to my broken past
     Has shattered.
I have walked into the dreams
     That seemed so far away.
The fog has lifted, I have sifted
     Through the things that mattered.
Finding nothing left of yesterday.

'Cause I made room for Jesus in my life.
     He helps me with my worries and my strife.
I pray to him each day, for guidance on my way.
     Yes, I made room for Jesus in my life.

The cries of loneliness have turned
     To laughter.
The wind has carried me above
     The sea I drifted on.
I live again, he's my best friend.
     There's no more looking after,
The lost an lonely man, for he is gone.
    
'Cause I reached out for Jesus with my hand.
     I knew he'd be the one to understand,
His spirit entered me, I felt so calm and free.
     'Cause I reached out for Jesus with my hand.

The road is rocky but he's there
     To listen,
As I move ever closer to
     The love within his heart.
The days are bright, I see the light.
     My eyes begin to glisten,
With the love and faith that Jesus can impart.

Oh, I made room for Jesus, can't you see.
     And Jesus, he has lots of room for me.
I pray to him each day, For guidance on my way.
     Oh, I made room for Jesus can't you see.

The Quality Within Me

The quality that is within me
To see it I had to find the key
Open it up and take a look
It was like a mystery book

So I opened the book and began to read
I was amazed by a single seed 
That was planted in me one day
But it wasn't watered so it withered away

Then I read on and began to see
Other qualities within me
Qualities that are possibilities
As long as I never lost the key

We Can't Break

I had it in the back of my mind
I knew it could happen in time
You’d look at me some day not really knowin’
If we’d keep goin’ on this way
We know we have a good thing worth holdin’   
Don't see us at the point of foldin’
We know we’re each other’s daily pleasure
But so afraid of forever
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now
There’s too much at stake
Babe we can’t break, no no
Babe we can’t break
 
You stare at me always smiling
That yearning look in your eyes
The way you make me laugh makes me tremble
Makes me feel that I’m your prize
Let’s give ourselves without reservation
Want all future moments with you
Doesn't have to be about persuasion
We’ll cherish all the things that we do
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now
There’s too much at stake
Babe we can’t break
Babe we can’t break yeah
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
I feel myself shakin’
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now (to think right now)
There’s too much at stake
Babe we can’t break no no
Babe we can’t break (Babe we can’t break)
Babe we can’t break
Babe we can’t break

My New Way

My New Way –  By Shawn Chadwick Sackman

One day I woke up 
Feeling sorry for myself
Not what I wanted for me
And then it hit me 
Realized I was free to be anything
Had big dreams before, but where had they gone
From that day on I said come-on 
My true test 
Never lose this feeling, feel so blessed

(Pre Chorus)
Heard the choir singing
Oh man I am reeling
Looked up winked, said thanks for the healing

(Chorus)
It’s my new way
It’s the same me, just a new way of trying 
I’m not letting a thing stop me 
From believing, not deceiving 
I know the way, know how it should be, there just for me
Trick is don't lose faith in believing, in the gift of receiving
It’s clear now that it’s a really new day
For my new way

I now want to try, to see what’s next
Got list of things to do, from my new view
I’m so okay, think I’ll stay

(Pre Chorus)
Heard the choir singing
Has me really reeling 
No no’s, just say yes and go
It’s a great feeling, want everyone to know

(Chorus)
It’s my new way 
It’s the same me, just a new way of trying
I’m not letting a thing stop me
From believing, not deceiving 
I know the way, know how it should be, there just for me
Trick is don't lose faith in believing, in the gift of receiving
It’s clear now that it’s a really new day

‘Cause I know this feeling helps me
Help others who can’t see
Not like before, no gray days for me
Oh what a day

My new way
Oh, I know it’s not just my new way
My new way

Grandma Was Dancing

She was a tappin' to the tunes...
of those Mississippi blues...
step-pin' out, in her white...
Pat-en-leather shoes,

We were a watchin' her a prancin',
all through the kitchen, dancin'...
for she was so...hot & sizzlin'...
hummin' to those Mississippi tunes...

Funny curlers too, upon...
her head...for a new... Hair dew,...
she was, a swirlin'-in that bakers apron,
when her head...star-ted a bobbin' to...
those Mississip-pi blues,

'Pots were a knockin'...
Grandma a sockin' down all she brews,
while that kettle there was whistlin',
in har-mo-ny, with them good ole...
good ole...mississip-pi moves,'

That floor there, was a bouncin'
holdin' hands we were a jumpin',
an-a hoppin' In the kitchen, to those...
                  sounds ...
Where Grandma's feet were a stompin',
In her new...New-white-sexy-pat-en-
leather-shoes...

UNBREAKABLE

You View Me Arrogant- Beholding My Values Bullish.
I’m A Problem Inevitable- Only In The Eyes Of The Foolish
A Philosopher, In The Thoughts Of The Wise,
For I Refuse To Take A Step Before I Think It Twice,
I’m The Modern Leader, Of Generation Yet To Flourish,
Living Accordingly With The Courage That I Might Brandish
I’m Metallic, The Unbreakable, Indispensable Sooth,
A Tiny Fearless Being, Indeed I am The Truth.

My Mind Is Mechanical, My Thoughts Subliminal,
For My Need Of Knowledge Is Insatiable,
I’m The Rock That Became A Mountain,
The Water Drop That Flourished Into A Fountain,
I’m The Light House Standing Tall Midst A Sea Of Darkness,
A Believer From Far The East, A Surviver Of Harshness,
I Have Walked On Blood, And Disturbed The Dead,
Lost In The Mist Of Miseries, Still Awoke To Find Bread.

My Eyes Are Believers- My Ears Are Listeners,
For My Hands Joined My Legs To Become Achievers,
Yes I am A Walking Dream, Unacceptable Only To The Unwise,
Therefore I Will Never Surrender Until My Demise
I Will Wake Up As If The Sun Only Rose For Me,
Record My Thoughts As If I’m Only Child Of History, 
Though This Life I Live Feels Like A Full Supreme Court,
With Verdicts Coming From Every Corner- Never Will I Distort.

I Have No Fear- As Failure Is My Sole Nemesis
I’m An Inevitable, Indestructible, Forthcoming Genesis,
I Speak Loud Like A Paranoiac Undisputed Vocalist,
I am A Devoted, Yet Unforgiving Mentalist, 
I Want To Be Something New To The Scenery,
I am A Mercenary, A Practically, Reputable Visionary,
I’m Done Living In Fairy Tales- I’m Rewriting History,
Foot Steps Of The Greats I’m Following- Reliving The Mystery.

Poetry Is My Antidote, My Self-Prescribed Pain Reliever,
Of Propagandas That Bring Souring Agony To Its Receiver,
Still I Thrive, For I am A Believer
Beating The Odds, Flying Hopes Of An Under Achiever,
Feeding From Their Negativity, For I Seek To Reach Higher,
I Will Rid My Ears To Avoid Hearing The Words Of A Liar
Though Times Are Hard, My Heart Is The Heart of A Fighter,
Its Dark Now, But At The End Of The Tunnel Is Brighter.

My Skin Is The Proof That I Have Lived Enough,
To Evict Poverty And Push Through, Even When It Seems Tough,
My Scars Are Reminding Stamps Of Strife,
The Vindication, And Cunning Ways Of Life 
Even If Steel Walls Were Built Around Me- I Will Still Make A Door,
Because I Have Lived In Enough Pain, In This Life Of The Poor,
I’m Metallic, The Unbreakable, Indispensable Sooth,
A Tiny Fearless Being, Indeed I am The Truth.?

thinking in black and white



a faded, vintage and washed out photography feel
     embraces my soul to create beautiful images
I love to capture texture and detail and shapes
           and the shadows and details are truly amazing

                    so just turn off your color vision

it is endless the beautiful images that can be visualized
     the only limit is imagination and inspiration
I find black and white photography dramatic and vivid
           never mind the cost of film developing and the time

                     so just turn off your color vision

step into an out-dated, antiquated age that is alive
     delight in how the light falls and the intensity
manipulate the image to compose a mood and aura divine
          I have started thinking in black and white
           
                     so just turn off your color vision

Took A While To See

Look at me, look how things have changed
Don’t know how life got so rearranged
Didn't see it coming, took a while to see

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see

Took a while to find that peace we searched for
But what we made we both adore
Think we can agree, it’s as it should be

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see

I know this life’s what it’s supposed to be
It’s sometimes not easy to see
The way to be free

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see
Oh, it took a while to see
Umm..

Second Chance


I wake to heartache each day of my life 
It’s been the same since I was a child
No father figure that I recall
Just the abuse and the drunken brawls
		 
I just wish that I could change it all 
Back the way I want it to be 
Just me and mum and my sisters too

Here I lay no place to call home 
Sick of coming down all alone
I need a fix my aching bones

Yea!!! One big happy family 
Back the way it should have been
Just me and mum and my sisters too

My home today is six by four 
Bars all around and a lock on the door
Do as you’re told every single day
Cause if you don’t there’s hell to be payed

I just wish that I could change it all 
Back the way I want it to be 
Just me and mum and my sisters too

I’m not to proud of the road I walk 
Hurt to many people the way I live
It’s time for me to be a man 
Yes it’s time for my little man
Yes It’s time for him to have a dad
It’s time to be there for my little man

 It’s time for me to be a man 
Yes it’s time for my little man
Yes It’s time for him to have a dad
It’s time to be there for my little man
		
Yea!!! One big happy family 
Back the way it should have been
Just me and mum and my sisters too

INSPIRATION OF YOUR EYES

    INSPIRATION OF YOUR EYES
Trespassing through your time and space
and following into a chase,
but never catching what I've seen,
nor even knowing what I mean;
it's not a thing my mind can place.

Your eyes, so deep, I never know
where you might lead, where I must go,
it's there I find what I must write,
these words, though sometimeS seeming trite,
and from your eyes they have to flow.

No less than what is meant to be
the muse of you carresses me;
I wonder, is this love, or not,
or something else, but don't know what,
and I must follow what I see.

Forever summer rain will fall
into my life, and love is all
there is to be my wordly guide;
between each line is where I hide,
if I do less, then I have lied.

And so the truth I have to show,
revealing what I never know,
but wonder at, as words come on,
out from your eyes, where I have gone,
and been where I should never go.

I Just Need The Woman Standin In Front Of Me

Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

There’s too much thinking going on in my head
I need to try something different instead
Get myself to move on 
Don't think I’m too far-gone
You made me aware right under this tree 
To stop wasting time on my current spree
Learn to enjoy what’s right in front of me

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
Know it’s cliché 
But it doesn't pay..
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I just need the woman standin’ in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Life's so good every day I can see
Something wonderful lookin’ back at me
Don't really know how
But I embraced the now
Every moment missed is something great
It’s right in front of us, have a little faith
Come-on, don't’ make life too tough
Take a moment to enjoy, it’s really great stuff
It’s great stuff

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
Know it’s cliché
But it doesn't pay..
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me 
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

She’s standin’ right in front of me..
Going to try
To be the best me I can be
And know the reason why
All my life

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
I Know it’s cliché 
But it doesn't pay...
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I just need the woman standin’ in front of me 
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

I Can See The Need

My heart said reach out to someone
 It said don't just try but do
Said there’s a great need
I could see its truth too

I listened and searched deep
Searched deep down inside

I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found 
They will see the need
It’ll make a difference you will see

A first step let’s agree
Know it’s easier just to live
Let’s start just you and me
We’ll get much more than we give

It’s a different kind of love
But it’s nice to take a lead

I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found
They will see the need
It’ll make a difference you will see

Help someone smile each day
Will feel like it’s worth it to stay
Be part of a new way

Yeah..

Umm, I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found
They will see the need

Umm…

Cause I can see the need
All around it surrounds
Runs through me
Maybe others can be found
They will see the need
It’ll make a difference you will see

A difference you will see
