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

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

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...

HOLDING ONTO YOU

I'm holding on to you
Won't let you drift away
Never going to let you go
Not tomorrow, not today
When the undertow is strong
You feel weak, can't fight
I'll hold you in my arms
Next to you all the night
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you
I'm your fortress, your rock
I cherish your every breath
Protecting you around the clock
I'm keeping all your secrets
I battle to conquer your fear
Never leave or forsake you
By my side I want you near
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you girl
Please hold on to me
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

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

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.

Who am I

A tribute to Ramana Maharshi, a man who has inspired me for forty years. a greaty Indian saint he was.....Peter




Who Am I?

Sometimes I ask the question “who Am I?”
Am I just this tiny speck put here by trust?
Just a puppet in the hands of destiny
To be blown within the wind just merely dust.

Then sometimes I’m aware of who I am
As I stand beside a lake or waterfall
As the music of the morning melts into me
And deep within that ancient whisper calls.

Well I ask myself this question
“Will I ever find the way?”
Ramana told me what to do
Said “Do it now, today!”

Oh such a little question one may ask
Does the answer come and blow the mind away?
Will the truth arise to set the bird to freedom?
If one asks this thing each minute of the 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.

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.

DOG NAMED BLUE

I had a plain pet rock 
Before it was a fad
I longed for a puppy
Wasn't allowed by dad
So I'd just pretend 
It was my shaggy dog
We'd go on walks
And jump over logs
We'd lay in the grass
And take in the rays
Me and my pet rock
On summer dog days
When school started
I'd take him with me
Kept in my pocket
No one could see
This boy had a dream
Now it's come true
Me and my son
Have a dog named Blue

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...

Tears In The Wind

Tears In The Wind

Left hand deftly fingering strings on frets, 
While my right hand is picking or strumming. 
Composing a sad song about regrets
And searching a melody by humming. 
I easily find a chord progression,
Played in a melancholy minor key,
Then add some dynamics for expression--
Reaching a fugue-like state releases me
Fleeting perfection is my endeavor.
Like tears in the wind, now lost forever.

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..

Most folk don't understand

Most folk don’t understand

It seems most folk don’t understand
As each, their role do play
Without no wisdom as of yet
Each mind ruled by the say
Of society’s most recent whim
With it emphases on gain
Most folk don’t seem to understand
They bring on their own pain.

Most folk never look within
Forever their eyes wander
To the sum of their desires
They never seem to ponder
With passion and sincerity
As to what their lives might be
And what’s behind the mask each wears
With all its mystery.

Who am I? each mind must ask
With heart all filled with doubt
This little question must be asked
Each one must work it out
Tis then the light might shine so true
Just like a rose in the morning dew.

This be the art, its wisdoms way
Leave all the rest behind
Don’t listen to the little self
It’s time to hush the mind
And come from that most deepest self
Then harmony might show
And radiate the life with peace
And teach one how to grow.

Little do they know

Little do they know
this candle is a torch.
That this torch
a conflagration.

Little do they know
these rocks are a mountain.
That these mountains
are earth.

Little do they know
we still see in the dark.
That the darkness
births sunlight.

Little do they know
these trumpets will call.
That the call
will emancipate.

Raise your head
from its hunched state
knowing that they will one day see
A truest composition of you and me.

For All Time

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

Like a bird

Like a bird

Like a bird up in a treetop
Singing, tenderly
This little bird I know him well
This creature it be me
I sit here with my pen in hand
And sing so crazily
With symbols shining out like gold
I give my song to thee

These words, they be my  message
I sing them to the sky
One day his body will be gone
But the words will never die
They well up from my very soul
Without no help from me
I am that bird up in a tree
With his lone symphony.

And lord, I like to share it
I will whisper from the stars
And tell the world I am this bird
Send vibes out wide and far
That sing about the journey
The only one I know
As I’m sending out my story
In words that make it glow.

SO LONG AS PEOPLE LIKE TO CHEW

Tragically lost his mom and dad
When he was eight years old
The only thing this boy had
Was a survivor's spirit so bold
Court moved him to the country
He didn't know a single soul
His life had been a busy shovel
That kept digging a bigger hole
No one had been kind to him
But he didn't see it that way
Just smiled through the suffering
He had a dream of a better day
The same year a stranger felt sorry
When they met handed him gum
Didn't chew it, he sold the pack
And his little business had begun
From one pack he bought two
And from those two it grew to four
From four packs he made eight
His emerging business hit the floor
Now it's just a few years later
Everything he touches turns to gold
He's reached the business pinnacle
And he's only 28 years old
This week I was invited to a meeting
So I made the trip from America
To fund a massive orphan program  
In downtown Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
My African friend, the biggest donor
Once an orphan he owns the cause
Ask him why he gives so sacrificially 
He'll smile at you and say because..

When I was just a lonely orphan lad
Nothing going right that I could see
That white dude standing over there
Gave a single pack of gum to me
And one by one I sold each piece
Took those profits to buy even more
And look it's just twenty years later
Now orphan care is what I'm living for
From a desperate hole to a mountain
Never know what's going on inside
All these kids need is an opportunity
They can take it deep and wide
When it comes to caring for the least
Don't say there's nothing you can do
There's always hope for the orphan
So long as people like to chew...

*The climber is through the eyes of a great friend in Ethiopia.  From orphan to one of the most successful young men in the country.

TEARS ON THE WIND

You were once all that was in my eyes
but girl, you left me here to drown
In this endless sea of whys

You were once all this heart was living for
but you had a double mind
I must have let love blind
just didn't see.. 
You'd be walking out my door

So many tears are on the wind
my soul cries
There must be more
one by one my tears fall to earth
They water faith
give hope new birth
that one day love will start again

My tears will dry 
time will heal what's tore
I won't care why
what happened before
Tears on the wind
will fade away
Love will start again
Yes one day

So many tears are on the wind
my soul cries
There must be more
one by one my tears fall to earth
They water faith
give hope new birth
that one day love will start again

Yes one day..
One day, love will start again!

Living Without

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

ONE AWESOME HEART

Fragile crystalline heart
Broken now are your parts
Thought you are that smart
You've been wrong, You're not
You are one enduring part
If shattered no spare part
Being careful a head start

One awesome soft heart
Let it go, don't depart

Iron chains of pain
Tricky trials a mundane
Don't stay long in vain
Cast away the blame
Step down to the shame
Breakfree on the frame
Soar high don't restrain

One awesome soft heart
Let it go, don't depart

Cry out loud if you must
Release all the ill huffed
Hold on thru velvety crushed
Slowly keep on don't rush
Hence, you will not get bust
Through scattered dirty dust
Soon, you will again trust

One awesome soft heart
Let it go, don't depart

Turn on your light

Turn On Your Light.

Turn on your light

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

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

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

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

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.

Beautiful

I got a beautiful heart
a beautiful mind, 
beautiful thoughts
and a beautiful smile

You see me looking 
like a diamond 
shining in the sky
Let me tell you why
It's all from my light inside

I got a beautiful heart
a beautiful mind, 
beautiful thoughts 
and a beautiful smile

Happy on the inside
Happy on the outside
Cmon baby let's ride
and you can catch the vibe

We got beautiful hearts
we got beautiful minds
we got beautiful thoughts 
and beautiful smiles

I have loved it all

I have loved it all

I have loved it all
Adored the whole of it
All those foolish dramas
The dirt and all the grit
The joy, and all it’s sorrows
I’ve really loved it all
All in all my life is beautiful.

I’ve heard folk moan about old age
But not me, never, no
Cause every day forever more
I’ll always feel that glow
That comes from living happily
Within this now, and here
I’m holding each new day so very dear.

I have loved it all
I have, that’s how I be
Oh, I’m so glad to be here
With my philosophy
My fate knows what she’s doing
And she’ll do right by me.

You’ll never hear me moaning
About my years so far
Cause all is an adventure
With me, the leading star
And when I leave this shell behind
I’m quite prepared to go
Though where I’m bound for then, I do not know.

FLYING HOME TO YOU

Flying home to you
Girl, I miss your touch
It's been way too long
Need you so much
My arms don't know 
What they're supposed to do
Just hanging around
Waiting to hold you
My lips only making words
Soon they'll be tasting sweet
When we're together
They'll be feeling heat
In your lover's mind
Oh yeah, burning in his heart
He's already there
Soulmate's never really part
Flying home to you
Living on cloud nine
Oh, your breath gives me wings
Just knowing your mine
Flying home to you 
I'm coming,
I'm coming,
Coming home to you!

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

Many Questions, One Answer

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

It's a crying shame

It’s a crying shame

In the midnight hour
I stroll along this shore
A silence comes on over me
I’ve felt this thing before
It’s a kind of joining up with God
Whatever that might be
In the midnight hour so all alone with me.

So early in the morning
Before the dark has gone
I stroll along these wetland trails
My heart all filled with song
I hear the birds who come alive
Sing their prayers for the day
In the early morn, the whole world seems okay

It’s a crying shame
That the silence has to go
Amidst the noise of the market place
What happens to that glow
That come when folk are not around
Oh, it’s a crying shame
It might be that it’s only me to blame.

I walk amidst the market place
With all the noise it makes
The gossip and the judgements come
It’s noise for it’s own sake
As I try to find the silence
Of the morning and the night
I am searching for that source of all delight.

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.

FOREVER WE ARE ONE

If we don't let go the past
the future will not come so easy,
so many time we go wrong
many time we are right
yet we are not perfect 
need to forgive others
that hurt us,thou heart may remember forever
heart may not want to give chances any more any longer
we need to move on without the past
we maybe taller than a tree yet we cant see the future
it is covered by the cloud
the future is many distance away
hard to believe,hard to see
everyday we try harder
everyday it goes longer
a plant today can be a beautiful flower tomorrow so dont up-root it
forgive and let go the past by-gun is by-gun,
give love a second chance
        !!!!let go the past-let come a new day!!!!!

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

GOD'S KIND OF POETRY

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you 'til the ends of the earth
   to the bottom of my heart..
From minute dusts, I adjust
   forming you with my own bear hands
Appointing you to be on high command
   over animals, plants and all others I planned

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I trust you much I let you run and roam
  I got upset you chose lure than obedience
But, I love you so so much that I am still here
   a father waiting for you to come home
Arms spread wide ready to embrace you tight
  Aching to show you more of my love and light

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I know you have been on trash or myriad tests
  to which sometimes you're on bended knee with tears 
Asking; Swearing; Doubting me when bad surprises
  cascade soak then thoroughly bathe you...
Don't you know that while you are in this...
  
I am listening to your shake and tremble
   I am there next to you, sobbing too..
I am hoping for you to remember ME.
   I am hoping for you to call my name.
As I am eager, so eager, to share your burden
   I am ardent, so ardent, to make you smile.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

I love you much that if needed I will sacrifice
 With all I am, I will draw you nearer to me
Not with golden armory of might or power
 but with the Spirit, I have sent to be with you
to remind you that I am here, always with you.
 Just don't you forget to seek me and my Words.

I love you, don't you feel?
Have faith. Trust me.
I am here, I am real.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

DEVINE INTERVENTION

Oh, Maarten de Jonge
Alive, you're not gone
Your margin so razor thin

Devine intervention
You must have a mission
More than a cycling win

Flight MH17 shot down
Flight MH370 never found
Yet you flew Malaysia again

Twice blessed now we'll see
What about number three
Tempting fate.. still you grin

*Maarten de Jonge, renowned Malaysian cyclist, was supposed to fly on both Flight MH370, which has yet to be found after disappearing over the Indian Ocean in March, and MH17, which was shot down over Ukraine

You are my everything

You are my everything

You can't leave me alone
I know just for a while you are gone
But keep informing me about you
Cause its very dreadful to wait alone 

I want to see your face 
Only I know its beauty and grace
You're my life, my soul
Of someone else there's no space

I only know you're mine
You're my apple, I'm your mela-pine
My life is nothing without you
Talk to me or give some sign

Trust in destiny

Trust In Destiny

Do your best then trust in destiny,
It’s the only valid thing that you can do.
Cause there ain’t no use in worrying,
It’s a fact I’m telling you.
It wears you down and makes you sad,
Or boils your blood and gets you mad
No worry’s not the proper thing to do.

You found a lump or your children get ill
Or you’re out of dosh and cannot pay your bills,
Or death has shadowed your poor life
Or you think someone may steal your wife,
Your kids are causing too much strife,
It’ll all work out when the time is rife
 It will work out I’m telling you.

So throw them, Ditch the bloody lot,
And look right now at what you have got,
For worry causes love to die and rot
It does, it does I’m telling you.

So watch the Sun come up every day,
In nature everything’s is just okay.
The Earth keeps turning steadily,
And the birds still sing in ecstasy,
And deep within your soul you’re free,
And it all depends on destiny
No matter what you try to do.

He Is

He is the Alpha and the Omega:
     Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come!
  He is the Beginning and the End -
      Ruler and High Priest in God's kingdom.
  He is the Bright Morning Star,
      The Root of David - the True Vine:
  He is the Branch of The Lord;
      The Fruit, the Bread and the Wine

He is Lord of lords - King of kings;
      Liberator, the Author and Perfector of Life:
  He is the Foundation, the Pillar,
      The Capstone in peace, the Rock in strife.
  He is the Son, the Lamb of God,
      The Word and Hope of eternal salvation!
  He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
      The Pride and Glory of God's creation

He is the Christ, the Word made Flesh,
      The Promised One, the Seed of Abraham:
  He is the righteous Man of Sorrows,
      The New Covenant, the Passover Lamb.
  He is the Truth! The Way! The Light!
      The Redeemer, the Mediator, and the Rabbi:
  He is the Bridegroom, the Teacher,
      The Anointed One of the Most High

He is the Life and the Resurrection,
      The Food of Life, Victual in the dearth:
  He is the Prince of Peace, King of Zion,
      Whose throne is here on Earth.
  He is the Exalted and Forever Praised,
      The Good Shepherd, the Deliverer of sins!
  He is the Messiah, the Saviour,
      When His reign in Jerusalem begins

He is the Risen, the First and Last,
      The Son of David! Son of God! Son of Man!
  He is the Rejected and Betrayed
      In God's great and everlasting plan.
  He is my Strength! My Faith! My Judge!
      My High Tower! My Refuge! And my Shield!
  He is the Eternal Lamp of Heaven,
      And by His grace will I not yield

TEMPERATURE RISING

I'm not ashamed 
To let it show
You light me up 
I feel your glow
My heart is racing
Love the beat inside
Not apologizing
I'm not gonna hide

The feeling's spreading
Like a sweet disease
Your beauty's outrageous 
Knock me to my knees
Don't need a doctor
There's no cure
Girl, you're my fever
That's for sure

Temperature rising
Climbing degrees
Girl, you're my fever
Knock me to my knees
Temperature rising
Oh, taste the heat
Sweet Caliente
Burning, spicy treat

Turning Chaos Into Harmony

1.)  I’m mostly brain-dead nine to five,    
But suddenly I come alive
When I have an idea for a song.   	 
For me there is no greater boon
Than putting lyrics to a tune.		
I feel like a genius all day long.

2.)  Music sends you to foreign place:		
Around the world or outer space--
Russia, China, Africa or France.			
It can raise you up or take you down
With a major or a minor sound;		
Lull you to sleep or make you wanna dance.

3.)  Music is so fundamental,			
You might say its elemental.
It’s in our cultural identity.			
Babies can sing before they talk,
And like to dance before they walk.		
Seems it’s hardwired in our circuitry.

4.)  We proclaim our liberties 			
And reverence our dieties,
With our anthems and our sacred hymns.	
My hope for ‘eternal glory’
Is a catchy song that tells a story.		
For me that is like a priceless gem.

Chorus
The Nirvana in my universe:			
Composing clever rhymes and verse,
And putting them into a melody.		
Choosing a scale to fit the words
Helps me find the proper chords--		
Turning chaos into harmony.

The certainty of you

A tribute to John and Carla Sherman at 'Just one look'

You can listen to the preachers
And the high priests, they as well
You can hear those Gurus speaking
You can think about endless Hell
It don’t matter what you’re doing
There’s just one thing to do
Look into the certainty of you.

You can do your meditation
Your Yoga, or Tai Chi
You can sail across the oceans
Seek help across the seas
There’s many who would help you
But you have to pay the price
But look at you, this be real good advice.

Take a look within you
And see what hides in there
Listen well to what the man has said
The one you thought was you
You’ll not find him everywhere
Turn around and look inside your head.

You can be a good or bad man
Or act jut like a drag
Overlook old ancient truths
Drink a beer or have a fag
Just take a look inside yourself
And see the one you be
Then in the end the truth shall set you free.

My Frencholosophy Song

The mud slide back in eighty six
Took out half my farm
And the war that lit up 69 
Is where I Left one arm

My wife and kids have left me
To part's unknown, somewhere
So I sit here all alone
While losing all my hair

        chorus
Now you can see, what my attitude should be
But instead of mulling around 
I get picked up, when I'm down
As I quote that little phase, that tickles me
"C'est La vie" 

My truck was repo-ed yesterday
My dog and cat ran off
My old friends all moved away
And often I feel lost

        chorus
Now you'll agree, just how happy could I be
When my world has gone to hell
I just get up, where I fell
And whisper those sweet words in ecstasy 
"C'est La Vie"

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

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

Romantic Feelings

Thus thou be kind to let me be
This heart explodes if not said to thee
Words spoken as true as love
By Jove! Ye art sent from up above

Those sweet smiles that make thy world go round and round
Just one night thine heart was not found
Because la belle dame named
Just took it on her arm

Oh I think I have gone mad
To pursue that love I never had
‘Cause I know we art two worlds away
How I wish I could longer stay

Though it may this heart ever throb
But I admit there is a locked doorknob
I can’t enter, stay outside
At that very moment I could have died

I will dream tonight f that very key
And dwell in the world of hyperreality
So that I can subtly see
The thoughts of being together; you and me

Material Civilization

This is my printed cup 
This is my drink of choice
This is my fast car 
This is my exquisite food
This is my two level condo
This is my fancy restaurant
This is my body inked
This is my brain held
This is my friend jack
This is my prozac
This is my credit card
This is how i'm not a retard 
This is my superhero 
This is my reality show. 

This is my lack of identity
This is my lost destiny
Is it the same ?, cause you will leave barefoot as you came..

Good Change Coming

Written October 7, 2012


My soul burns inside
And it comes comes out to hide
When its so shocked to hear
That the darkness is here

Would you believe in the words that I say
Even if they aren't diamonds and pearls
With a paper in front and a pen in my hand
I just want to change the world

Is it too much to ask
Too abstract to grasp
This idea that's been running
I promise there's good change coming

With a bullet and a gun
You'll get any man to run
But it takes diplomacy
To get a real man to see

Would you believe in the words that I say
Even if they aren't diamonds and pearls
With a paper in front and a pen in my hand
I could really change the world

Is it too hard to be
The man I want to see
When I look in the mirror
Lord I pray it was clearer

With a permanent marker
I color in darker
The world that I see
Ain't what it should be

Would you believe in the words that I say
Even if they aren't diamonds and pearls
With a paper in front and a pen in my hand
I am going to change the world

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..

Freedom

Invisible walls with powerful claws,
Limited chances, avoiding falls.
Browse the news create the blues,
Raise the spirits indulge in booze.
Disco lights blinding sight,
Stars above connect at night.

 Shallow voices destroy our dreams,
Follow the road to make believe.
Requesting answers feel the force,
Lot of power commanding source,
Open your eyes until you see,
See the truth set you free.

So perfectly

So Perfectly

A small child laughs, a baby cries
As flowers worship sun
A small bird sings a song of joy
He knows the dawns begun
What hazy shades of bliss this be
As all, it feels like one.

A rabbit frolics on the lawn
As parrots in the trees
Give out their shrieks of pure delight
As dancing on the breeze
The trees fill me with mystic, magic
To give my heart some ease.

It’s not the same as yesterday
When I never saw those things
My heart, it now is open wide
And sweetness to me brings.

The fountain burbles with delight
My heart just sings a song
I love the whole wide world today
I feel that I belong
To this world so perfectly
Where nothing’s right or wrong.

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

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!

for you may need a hand
while other are being mad
bring you down
pushing you to the ground
i will be there
i will be there
always and for longer
i may seem strange
or a man not my age
to young to wise
dont let go
for you will be intertwined
with hate and depression
longing in your possession
conquer your mind
and never sees the light
dont let go
dont do so
for the evil inside
will raise and cause other wise
depression sadness
angry and madness
dont let go 
i will be there
to help you
any were
just dont let go

Amour, I will ease your pain

"Amor, amor, amor This word so sweet that I repeat
 Means I have adored you Amor, amor, my love
 Will you deny this heart that I have placed before you?" 

Quote from DEAN MARTIN  song- AMOR  


 Inspired by the French movie “Amour” which has won string of Awards


Where do you have the pain Amour?
Tell me where it aches
See I am right beside you my love
Oh ......how... do I ease your pain
Your hands are still so soft
Shall I tell you a story my sweet heart
Listen it will wipe your pain
“When I was around ten......
I was sent to a holiday camp
My mom and I had a secret pact 
If I like the place to draw flowers,
If I don’t to draw stars
So my post cards are full of stars......
See your pain is gone now
My sweet! Do you feel my kiss? 
I will ease your pain forever......
M m mm..........
Please forgive me Dear God
I cannot bear to see her suffering?
I cannot bear any more.......
I have bought flowers to decorate her body
And it will give her a nice fragrance
There, I hear her washing the dishes
She has come to take me too
Yes, I will put on the coat
No, I haven’t forgotten my shoes
With My Amour I am going too...

Fighter

I’ve been to the brink of utter destruction
Watched my dreams sink down to desolation
The hole in my soul is screaming only what I know
That I gave up a long time ago
I’m sorry I didn’t rise to the challenge
I just laid to waste, broken and damaged
Truth is I’ve been feeling this all along
This nagging in my heart that something is wrong
As time passes on I’m losing myself
But this broken heart won’t mend itself
Passing through, it’s the pain I feel
Reminding me that love is real
It’s that tiny spark that ignites a fire
That spreads throughout and turns me into a fighter
So when the storm rages on
And the pain has only begun
And if change never comes
I know I’ll be standing here when it’s all said and done

The whisper

The Whisper

In the softness of a diamond studded night
I felt that pregnant silence all around
And the moon she looked so magic in my sight
 As she cast her rich dark shadows on the ground.

I felt that mystic presence in the air
As I sensed an awesome power deep inside
And this essence it pervaded everywhere
As deep within my child, for freedom cried.

I heard the silence whisper to my heart
So soft, but oh so loud, and so, so, strong
As the voice of wisdom gently played it’s part
It’s very purity could not be wrong

‘Accept yourself’ the whisper seemed to say
You never know your time may not be long
Why not be here now, and live your life today?
            And let it be, and dance, and sing your song.

Strings

If I hold on to strings,
That tend to slip away,
Does that mean I love things,
That I know will never stay?
If I hang on to a love, 
that just holds me down,
Does that mean that my wings,
Won’t get me off the ground?
If I hold on to lies,
That I only half believe,
When I look in your eyes,
Will you look back at 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.

Morning meditation

Morning meditation

The Corellas come, they’re flying over
Making such a raucous din
They sound just like they own the planet
As the morning does begin
I close my eyes and take a journey
To the world where dreamers go 
And feel within that deep, deep feeling
That meditators only know.

The sky outside is like black velvet
Clouds they hide the morning sky
As the white birds fly on over
I let the morning just slip by
Morning is the time for looking
At the space that I call me
It’s a really lovely journey
To this space I love to be.

Soon the busy day will be here
All the folk will gather round
I will tell them of my journey
And the solace there I’ve found
They’ll just laugh and think I’m crazy
Many people often do
But right now, I’m meditating
When morning comes, it’s what I do.

You Are My Matchless Mate

“You’re my matchless mate”

Kiss me as you never before
Do it much better
That I must ask you for more

But one thing you keep it in your mind
I can never let myself for nasty
So, never plan to go on for dirty

I know, you have devoted yourself to me
But it doesn’t mean
You begin to feel free

You know well who am I
If I’m your heart voice
Then you’re also my elite choice

Though the sun blaze very hot
But when you came in front of it
It cools down on the spot

Whenever I say you’re my flower
You replied, “You’re its scent”.
From others, this thing makes you different

No doubt you’re my matchless mate
In any way and only with you
I have decided to make my fate.

Out There We Are



We are the ordinary..
We are the simple...
We are the thousand petaled lotus flower... blooming  with extraordinary grace
We unfold with all passions power...
We are the ancestors...kissing the Earth...touching the sky.. feeling the heart 
of our infinite universes, We the gods are inside out...

NO OTHER WOMAN


come, speak to my heart
say: "we will not depArt"
you are only mine
and i am ONLY yours

perceive any other woman
they maybe prettier
yes, they maybe richer
even exudes sexier

the hell, i mind
as i know im not behind
as in to your eyes
as cold as eyes, unto heights

i am the only one
as i'm no other woman
possessing, keeping you
denying you all from blues

These Slogans

Politics is a cluster of slogans
Pinching society’s all organs
The issues are just countless
Blaming others being careless

Sometimes of a child education
Sometimes removing corruption
Sometimes women’s protection
Sometimes poverty eradication

The slogans flow in every stream
Showing bright future’s scheme
During elections all catch the ear
But after it they are nowhere near

They only seem to be clever tricks
To befool through thins and thicks
All leaders appear to be prophets
Pouring in voice honey droplets

For God’s sake stop tricking on us
We are fed up of shows pompous
We want no more of slogans at all
We want the nation builder’s call

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

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.?

Harmony chair

Harmony chair.


I was sitting, reading the paper today
And everything seemed so depressing and, grey
         There was murder, and plunder all over the place
                And poor people starving, it’s a total disgrace	
I don’t know why.

I saw and old geezer, he was down on his luck	
With no body wanting to pass him a buck
His eyes begged, and pleaded, but nobody cared
Contempt clearly wrote, in the force of their stares
It’s so unfair.

We’ve got to build us a harmony chair
That makes people happy, with nary a care
So folk will not suffer, not ever again
With nobody feeling no pain.

The birds, they be singing, neath the sun bold and bright\
As a rose flower thrills me with its perfect delight
Then I look at the faces of people around
With most of them wearing a permanent frown
They’re look so down.

Why aren’t people happy? Why can’t they be gay?
It seems that they’re feeling so troubled and grey
Won’t they look at those birds, as they sing in a tree
And see all around them life’s sweet mystery
So glad to be.

Written in 1990.

ONE CAN BE AN ARMY WHEN HE MARCHES WITH THE LORD

The armor of the lord is never heavy on my back. 
The fight is not just one that's fought against the flesh and blood.
For I am armed with all his righteousness against attack.
Light will overcome the darkness as we march on through the mud.

One can be an army when he marches with the Lord.
One can be a symphony when striking heaven's chord.
One can be the victor over evil, hate, and lies.
For one who fights for truth is not alone in Jesus eyes.

The breastplate is the heart that beats God's love into the world.
Feet covered with the peace that we pursue in every man.
The shield of faith defends against the wickedness that's hurled.
The sword will speak the word that conquered all since time began.

One can be an army when he marches with the Lord.
One can be a symphony when striking heaven's chord.
One can be the victor over evil, hate and lies. 
For one who fights with truth is not alone in Jesus eyes.

There are reinforcements to be called on from above.
The cry for righteousness has always been an angel song.
Thank you father for the armor crafted with your love.
As I walk into the battle Lord, I pray that I am strong.

One can be an army when he marches with the Lord.
One can be a symphony when striking heaven's chord.
One can be the victor over evil, hate, and lies.
For one who fights with truth is not alone in Jesus eyes.

Feelin' this Shame Without a Name -part 3-

Just tell me (one more time)
Where is that paradise road
Tell me is it my lovely haven or my sweet, sweet abode 
I'm sick of your plastic love
Sick of your heartless smiles... 
Sick of sucking up your biles...
Somehow I know you still don't care about me...
You were heedless of my despondency 
There will be a time when I'll run away...from reality's demise
The truth will set you free...and, honey, there's no where to hide 
There's no hole to hop into... don't be afraid, little rabbit...
The light will shun out the darkness and reveal our true color...who will win the future prize? 
Embrace the silence...
Don't fence me in with your morbid luck
Embrace the silence...
Don't fence me in with your careless doubting 
I'm sick of your crying...
Sick of your lying
I won't listen to your lies
Sick of your voice...sick of your disease
Sick of your dreams and fantasies 
Sick of your love...it wears off on me
Sick of your existence... i wish I could live in pure ecstasy 
Tell me where is that paradise road
Tell me is it my heavenly haven or my sweet, sweet abode 
I'm sick of your plastic love
It's not enough x2...I seek love from up above
There will be a time when I'll escape from the corrupted world...and live another day without a single trace of fear
The truth will set you free...and, honey, there's no where to hide...
There's no hole to hop into...you snooze, you lose, little rabbit dear...
Don't let the night steer you away from the light
Embrace the silence,watch the sunrise with me, and we'll gaze at the small chicks as they take their first flight


~My song is dedicated to a song I love from Evanescence entitled Sick : - ). For the people who don't know Evanescence, look up her songs: Sick, My Heart is Broken, My Immortal, Hello, Lost in Paradise, Haunted, What You Want, Sweet Sacrifice, etc. xDD

The dustbowl troubadour

My tribute to Woody Guthrie.

The dust bowl troubadour.

Once when I was just a stud
I loved the folky crowd
I would listen well to Bob Dylan
[I immersed him in a shroud]
Then Donovan, and Joanie Baez
I loved them and their ways
Through Them I found my legend ‘Woody’
Oh, these were happy days.

Old Woody he inspired them all
All the folkies of that time
And me, I just adored the man
His rhythm and his rhyme
I love the things he sang about
That Dust bowl troubadour
Two thousand songs they say he wrote
Me-thinks it might be more.

As Woody rode those railways lines
He would fruit pick and he’d sing
He always carried his old guitar
As to poor folk he would bring
Sweet laughter and much happiness
For those his heart did touch
And all those dust bowl refugees
They loved this man so much

It all comes back

Everything comes back

To all who’ve acted cold
Here’s a message loud and bold
Be careful what you do, it all comes back
What you be doing now
It will pay you back somehow
Somewhere further on along the track.

One does not need no books
Of old and dusty looks
To learn this truth, just take a look at life
All those bad moves you have made
Do they ever really fade
Be honest, don’t they cause your mind some strife?

It be wrote within your heart
To make good things a part
Of life, the value seems to be quite high
Yet do another wrong
The comebacks can be strong
You have to learn this truth before you die

When you’re young, you never learn
You might not feel concern
There be no time to feel those pangs of guilt
Yet the damage you have done
Like a flower in the sun
Might someday cause your heart to sadly wilt.

Don't You Cry

Well, my mother, she lay sick in bed;
And I can hear the words she said:
Don't you cry little boy,
Don't you cry little boy,
The Lord is near
Well, the doctor said he give her a weak;
Because she is so very week.
Don't you cry little boy,
Don't you cry little boy, 
The Lord is here.

Well, my father, he lay dying in bed;
And I can hear the words he said:
Don't you cry little girl,
Don't you cry little girl,
The Lord is near. 
The day has come and he's with me no more;
With wings in Heaven he will soar.
Don't you cry little girl, 
Don't you cry little girl, 
The Lord is here.

Well, our baby brother lay in his crib;
And these are the words we said:
Don't you cry little baby,
Don't you cry little baby, 
The Lord is near. 
He struggles for breath and cannot rest;
His hearts beats hard on his chest.
Don't you cry little baby, 
Don't you cry little baby, 
The Lord is here. 

Don't you cry little children, 
Don't you cry little children, 
I, the Lord, am near.
Don't you cry little children,
Don't you cry little children,
I, the Lord, am here.

Solitary man

Solitary man.

I’ll walk the line and do the things I must
But I’ll be me and I never will be trussed
By the bonds of all that fools banality
That keeps a man held down in misery.

Expectations gone I’d be a friend
Someone to trust and share until the end
But don’t you ever turn me into you
 Cause I am me in everything I do.

I’ll walk alone and do the things I do
And to myself I’ll try hard to be true
I’ll dance my dance the way I only can
And I’ll live my life the solitary man.

Yes you may laugh and think me but a fool
As you succumb to all those boring rules
But I’ll be me my mind uncluttered, free
As a man alone I’ll meet my destiny.

A Time for Change

A life to be born
While a generation sworn
To corruption and passivity
Tolerance is a novelty
Empty minds are filled with lies
Using acceptance as a disguise
They preach it doesn’t matter how you live
The line has been blurred, something’s got to give
The blindness tells us we’re all free
But no one lives to what their meant to be
Chained down by the belief that everyone’s right
Discouraged to stand up and fight the good fight
It doesn’t matter the choices we make
We’re the ones in charge of deciding our fate
As we follow this path of moral destruction
The truth crumbles away in a violent eruption
The frailty of man comes up to the surface
As we lose sight of our God given purpose
As we move our world falls apart
We’re killing souls and losing heart
When did it become wrong to be right?
Why are we silent when it’s time to fight?
It’s time to turn from darkness and step towards the light
But we give into pressure and back away in fright
Souls are lost as time continues to count down
But courage and integrity are nowhere to be found
Desperation gives way, and the clock counts on
A yearning in our hearts say a new time has dawned
A time to break down the walls and say what’s true
A time to say it matters what you do

Writers Block

I got to unlock my thoughts and trick this clock to get my tik to tok , 
Too pissed to talk, bout to stick a rod in a faulty wall socket, 
To go shock my top till it falls off and bobs it, all I got is blocks, 
When I write its all vomit, 
I've lost it, i'll drop this pen, grab a gloc and cock it,
No mom I won't drop it, 
Where will I go if god was just a false prophet, a comic, 
So I'll take the wood of the cross and knock it, a deposit
I'm oh so twisted all my lines have become knotted.

Don't Let Go

Every day I wake up and look in the mirror
I can’t tell who that is looking back at me
There’s a girl crying, “This is not meant to be!”
I feel the war torn soul going cold
Those cliché phrases are growing old
My hand clutched tightly to fragmented memories
Of days of laughter and no worries
I’ve lost the will and strength to fight
I’m falling down losing sight of the light
Quickly fading into a sea of bitterness
I’m frozen in a state filled with emptiness
Like a lifeless corpse lying helpless on the ground
I’m in desperate need of redemption to be found
Breathe life back into my nimble bones
Bring me back to a place where I’m not fighting this alone
The weight bears so heavy, I sink farther
Everything gets quiet and my heart grows darker
I close my eyes and see a faint glimmer
A rustling in the wind whispers, “Things could get better.”
History promises I’m on the road to destruction
But the future tells of a path of resolution
My fingers are slipping as I cling to the edge
Deep in my heart I don’t want to come off this ledge
It’s enough to know the battle isn’t done
As long as I don’t let go there’s still a war to be won
Every step I take is a victory in itself
Of turning my life around and not giving up on myself.

Sentiment

I tried to see what life would be like on the other side of the mirror
I knocked on the glass for days, but no one ever let me in
Cracking, finally, the reflecting world showed me the truth
That it's just like the one I’m in; it only makes you bleed in the end

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Is all that reminds me I can still feel

Living this perfect life, dream lover, dream house, dream happiness
Take for granted the gift, not accepting your needy independence
Lust, greed, emotional gluttony; everything you've ever wanted
It’s only thanks to me, I created the twist in your soul, I made you who you are

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Can remind you that you can still feel

Taken by the presence of an all too familiar enemy
This man staring from the corner; he never leaves, never leaves me
Gentle whispers of deception takes hold and only tightens
Painful sobriety renders me vulnerable and helpless
He only laughs as I pray to God to save me

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Can remind you that you can still feel

Stare into a face, frozen for eternity
Never aging, never moving, never leaving; its world merely fades to white
Longing to go back, wishing to be, nothing humors the hope
Not tears, prayers, nor blood can bring them back
Trapped behind wood and glass; imprisoned in this photograph

I only close my eyes
To find something worth looking at
I can only hear your voice
When I’m screaming into the wall
I only think on you
When the cynical inspiration dissipates
And sometimes only the freezing cold
Can tell me that I can still feel

An end if you are save there’s nothing to worry about.
Only those who can understand the proverbs will be 
Able to distinguish the theme of the coming of the king.
Drink from the cup of life, and get drunk off his wisdom.
A taste of the devil don’t speak truth just the issues on your 
Heart will flow through.

Don’t blame God because everything in the world don’t turn out 
So sweet. Don’t receive the word of death when people want you
To die.

Its time for America to bless God is that so hard
True statement Lord they try to take your name out
Hide it behind something that fake. Call evil good 
And good evil. Why relate and agree stop blending
In and open your eyes to see. You will have what you speak

Loose words, will leave you mindless. Stay grounded keep your 
Head high on the things of the kingdom and not of the world. Heaven
Sight is much more beautiful than darkness that many are agreeing to.
Yes sin is fun but in the end it can leave you ruin. Live by the word and speak
Only the word. To cancel the plans of the enemy in God you are free. Only stay 
Positive some of the hell in your life comes because you start it. Stay connected to
The creator and the things that look fatal he will shape them to mold you to who he created you to be. After all he knew you before you knew you so how can you tell him
What you want to be. Be like a ship keep floating and let him conduct the sea. Better 
To be greedy when it comes to spiritual food than of what the natural eye can see. Read all You can, grow all you can, and be all that you can.

Don’t lust after life, live out of your spirit man.
To the five senses the flesh is weak. Yes giving in 
To it can rotten your teeth. Remember nothing you do
For God is in vain of course the world will think you are insane.
So why not go all the way with God when they already call you crazy.
To them also Jesus was crazy. To die for someone that was already wicked.
What a love so much love can’t say I seen someone else mimicked. So there’s
Nothing sick about you if Jesus went to the cross for you to him I must was worth 
It. Because after all he created us all for a purpose. Unloose the shackles that have you bound. No one can lock you up more than you. Agree only with the truth. Make a step towards God to receive peace commit yourself and receive life eternality.

Its time for America to bless God is that so hard
True statement Lord they try to take your name out
Hide it behind something that fake. Call evil good 
And good evil. Why relate and agree stop blending
In and open your eyes to see. You will have what you
Speak.

Who Will Pay

The path on which we journey targets death,
So it's imperative each day we're at our best.
For none knows, save God, our final breath,
In judgment our performance will be assessed.

Knowing that for all sin Jesus did atone,
Giving each an option between purpose and drift.
For our choice, someday, we'll account  alone,
Consider accepting life's most treasured gift.

* Jesus paid the price on the Cross for our sin 
or we will pay at death. For by Grace we are saved.

Spark Avenue

Where's the fire,
Where's the rain?
Find the anger;
Find the pain.
To improve with my own pen,
I should discover again.

Would You Be My Muse

Are you looking for someone to inspire?
Do you fancy being one’s object of desire?
Do you want to be the spark that sets my world on fire?
In other words, would you like to be my Muse?

There’s a vacancy on my pedestal
For someone more divine than terrestrial;
Or someone like you—almost celestial.
How about it—would you like to be my Muse?

Chorus
You could be the entity that brings out my creativity,
Give nuance and subtlety to the rhymes in my poetry,
And bridge my melody with polyphonic harmony.
You could light the fuse that sparks my art with tints and hues.
Together we could never lose… if you’d only be my Muse.

In return for being my inspiration
You’ll have my devotion and veneration,
And be named in all my dedications.
If you’d be my beloved Muse.

Give Me An Idea

Give me a thoughtful image 
That I can reveal in black and white,
Or with tints and shades of colors 
Using pastels, ink, or graphite.
Even the most common thing 
Can seem to be introspective
When rendered with clever shading 
Or seen from a different perspective.
 
Find me a new metaphor, 	
Or a novel unused simile—
Something like alliteration	 
To bring to life my poetry.
Help me write some plays on words,  
Or a sentimental nuance,
That would appeal to those lovebirds 
That see the world through the lens of romance.

Inspire me with lyrics 
And clever rhymes that tell a story.
Then hum a new chord progression	 
That would support a melody.
Add guitar riffs and a hook 
That surprise like an epiphany.
Bind them together like a book:  
A multi-genre fusion symphony.

(Chorus)
Give me an idea worthy of a drawing, poem, or song;
Something inspiring enough to push creativity along.
Something interesting enough to fire the synapses in my brain.
Something provocative enough to make all stop and look again.

Trying To Find That Groove

I just wrote another song--I’ve got the lyrics and the chords.
It’s not too short, nor too long, and the melody fits the words.
The majors and minors flow into a nice chord progression,
And there’s a sexy, slow, Latin beat to add a touch of passion.
 
I’ve not yet made a solo that will dazzle our rock star;
I’ll have the guitar-hero write something for lead guitar.
The drums and rhythm guitar both have parts that came out easy.
But it’s always the bass guitar that has the part that drives me crazy.

The bass guitarist is the guy that makes the band earn its money.
His job is to unify the rhythm, melody, and harmony.
He sets up the next chords for the keyboards and guitars to play—
Ever leading the band forward, rather than watching them run astray.
 
Chorus (after verses 2 & 3):
I’m trying to find that groove—the one that gets you on your feet,
The one that makes you want to move and boogie in the street.
I’m trying to find that groove, that catchy riff, that walking beat,
That makes all the other grooves sound like something obsolete.

PRAYERS AND BELIEFS

BY STREET CRIES

I pray for savlanut that's patience in hebrew
Asking God to protect me from people that's see through
Cause I know on the right path he'll see me through

Now I know I am not perfect I still have faults
But who does not
Even the ones that make it to the top

So I am going to keep my Prayers and Beliefs
Knowing that he will bless me and my seeds
Knowing that he still hears me even if I am not down on my knees
To him I put my heart on my sleeves

I am only human

I still feel pain and my heart still bleeds
Passing by the homeless knowing that could be me

But instead there's a address where I sleep
Shoes on my feet and food in the fridge if I want something to eat
People say my poetry is deep

So I have to thank God for the ability to speak
Thank you

Keeping Words

I don’t want to go to grave yard
For I had promised my beloved
To wait here until she comes up
Let me stay alone and shut up
For she does not like any crowd

I don’t want to be buried deep
For I have a promise to keep
That she needn’t search for me
I will never from her be flee
For she finds me to be proud

I don’t want to be burnt away
I must keep my words anyway
To be by her side if she needs
Let me lie aside by the reeds
Covered in the holy shroud

Participation For Anticipation

To me you are my destination
And to you I am 
A target of destruction

To me you are a friendly union
And to you I am
Just a time pass combination

We are both human creation
So why this is
Such an agonizing confusion

God has gifted determination
To both of us
To become a lovable inspiration

But we are showing indignation
By deliberately
Forgetting humanity aspiration

We are failed in the examination
Given by the Lord
By showing our foul resignation

Let’s come by for a culmination
To represent our
True account of the unification

     MEGAN IMAGE - Horsham 27
It stops my heart sometimes,
just seeing you or knowing you are near,
or somewhere else I might have been,
part of the past but never far from here.

Deep in your eyes where there's no end to see,
I lose myself to life's great tragedy
and you've become my very greatest fear.

Your photograph's forever part of me
and has become the last thing 
                     my mind will ever see.

Beyond The Pack

I have been through so much, just to grow up
But now that I'm grown up, I need to go
Through my past just to get past the roadblocks
That are blocking my paths,

On the road to success I learned forgiveness,
To get rid of excess that was holding me back
That kept me flying with the rest or soaring
Beyond the pack.

In A Moment

I sit upon the eagle’s wings
And soar above the clouds
I search my heart to hear the truth ring
Scream it across the clouds
The shadows that covered my hopeless soul
Roll back to set forth the shining sun
My faith was sinking down a bottomless hole
But now the pain is gone and the joy has begun
I was taken away to a moment I would not forget
On the eagle’s wings I was soaring high
Taken to a place where I’m better yet
Forgetting why I was ready to say goodbye
In reckless abandon I was finally free
Breathing in life the way it’s meant to be
Letting go of the torment taken over me
Breaking down the walls, and now I could see
In a moment where everything could change
Suddenly I was a warrior who couldn’t be shaken
A moment where ambition set the stage
And the ferocity of my will power couldn’t be broken
It was the moment that changed my life forever
And at times I drift and forget it all
But the moment still holds my heart forever
Cause in a moment I woke up and realized my call.

Emmanuel savings

save us oh Emmanuel
save us from our own evil
our praise to you Emmanuel
can you save us, will you tell

save us oh Emmanuel
save us from eternal spell
we pray you, our hearts to dwell
save us all Emmanuel

save us oh Emmanuel
save us from this tolling bell
look what now has us, befell
past Palestine, and Israel

save us oh Emmanuel
save us from our deathly knell
the present need begins to swell
do heads trump, to hearts foretell

ooh save us, oh Emmanuel
is it possible to, our anger quell
save us from well-crafted hell
what say, oh god of our moral

save us now Emmanuel
to believe in grace is just as well
if we can get it, none can tell, but
save us, ooh save us, Emmanuel

Reflect on Me - part 2 of Cherry-top Bliss

*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 glorious!

You’re weeping me insane…refrain from driving me insane…I lost my train of 
thought – I was thinking positively until I stepped foot into the wretched 
abyss 
Our hearts are decaying and lamenting in vain…tragedy’s gravity pulls us 
down in shame and we’re longing for His healing rain
The veins in your eyes release bittersweet tears…of hopelessness that I 
shouldn’t address
Waterfall of tears spring out of your eyes – once bottled up for many years – 
and we’re driving into another shady lane
Let me replace your sadness and fears 
With jubilance, satisfaction, liberty and cheers

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

I offer

I offer my soul to Him
I offer my whole to Him
I offer my journey to Him 
I offer my goal to Him

I wish to be His Part
I wish to be His servant
I wish to have a soul smart
I wish to be His scent

I dedicate to Him 
All my bad and good 
For whatever I am
Is His own fluid

I beg His pardon
If I am doing wrong
In writing this verse
And singing this song

Humble Resolution

There’s a line that needs to be drawn
As the sickness is coming on
We’re battling a war here
Don’t know the reason behind this fear
It consumes us as we reflect on this horrific mess
But we’re coming with our judgment and our political address
It seems we can’t stay quiet and just make nice
Pointing fingers at the world for making this strife
We scream and fight for the right to be right
 There’s a whispering in our ears that we’ll win this fight
This is the dawn of a new age, a coming revolution
But we’re missing the point, the need for resolution
And as we look down at the blood in our hands
We see this pain as a means to the end
Pick up our armor, cling to our security
We’re all just scared of this hopeless reality
That the end to the struggle requires a humble retreat
The ability to turn around and admit defeat

Alive

Could you believe, 
something so extrodinary?
Could you percieve,
something so out of the ordinary?

I used to think I was dead
Lots of confusion inside my head
Trying to find something fimilliar
An experience deemd peculiar

I wish i wasnt stuck with this curse
I dont know what I am worth
I belong to another world
Where things arent so cold 
And we never get old

When you dont even know what youre looking at 
In the mirror
Fictional fact,
with a little horror
You start to wonder
what it feels like,
to get hit by thunder

Like I said
Once, in my mind, I was dead
Not inside my head
Not inside my mind
Not the physical kind

When you have been immortal
This life is just a temporary portal
A wormhole
Where you chase, rise and fall
and end up, with nothing at all

I cannot feel, like everyone else
I do not hear, the golden glittering bells
I am subjected to this reality against my will
It makes me illl

Whats the point, of all of this
You may ask
Its all one big twist
We hold on  to something
thats already gone
Thinking on Earth, here's somewhere we belong


Details | Lyric | |

Things Aren't Ever Truly Free

For things in life that we've held as free,
Even things perchance obtained at a loss.
On this solitary matter I trust we agree,
Our salvation was postpaid at the cross.

Salvation's made available; no cost affixed,
I think of this gift each Christmas season.
Purchased on a cross two thieves betwixt,
I'm rejoicing knowing Jesus is the reason.

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

Take a last chance on me

Took a long drive, ended upon an oceanview watched the sunset
decided writing my heart once again to you
my last letter had much conviction
read carefully now this needed petition

From our limited conversation
you said your in love
thinking of marriage
your happiness is sound
yet skepticism in your voice reads rebound

does second best constitute what you really miss
I've not forgotten, a few key things you really  need
two and three a roof and family unity
the first, love without hesitation

before you accept vows from  another
grant me this extra measure
take a last chance on me
let me prove to you I'm true
let me be the inspiration you really need
take a last chance on me

over and over within my mind
decisions I've made
recounting all wrongful actions
learning from elapsed time
corrected my crossed thinking
no longer mentally blind
today maturity lives strong
new direction, teaching, understanding

Past expressions are just reflections
views and opinions, everyone changes
we're no exceptions to the rule
judge me not by yesterday for today I'm someone new
as I'm sure are you

maybe much time has passed
maybe he fills the void in some ways
maybe he's got good intentions
but because he cant replace my crazy personality
you cant replace originality
maybe I shouldn't read things as deeply as I always do
maybe I should get on with finishing this song 
and hope you'll come back too

can he make you laugh till you cry
can he make you cry with joy in your eyes
can he dance the night away
does he hold your hands in a guiding fashion
does he inspire you time after time

would he fight for your right
would he chase after a memory and stay dedicated to you
would he write his heart out just to show he's true
would he try to keep you always by his side
would he worship you the way I do

before you accept vows from another
grant me this extra measure
take a last chance on me
let me prove to you I'm true
let me be the Inspiration you really need
take a last chance on me

One last chance is all I ask
one last chance
one last chance is all I'm asking for 
take a last chance on me

Closer Still

I look to my love and to the future,
both coming closer with every thought.

I look to the future that I know like a prophet
with a love that I understand and worship.

I look to a time when.;..
we are lost in each other, and found in us,.
speechless we communicate, mindless we love.
I look to a time when.
age has mellowed our temper and we bend to each other,
 weaving a sculpture of love.

Getting closer.

As for now we are still young and unsure,
in love and insecure, bold and impure.

Yet getting closer.

Closer not just to each other, but closer still
 to the truth in our spirits and to the purpose in our bodies.

Getting closer still.

Age is our ally, time our enemy, life's our battle,
innocents the casualty, and peace our reward in our
struggle to be closer still.

In the forge of love, temper burns and wills collide
but if we learn to bend we will survive.

And we get closer still.

Fate may pull us away or it may push us closer,
but if we flow with it, I feel that it will shape us
to be closer still.

In our struggle, what is the goal, and what is the measurement?

Our goal is boundless, and love is the measure of which
infinity is but a small increment.

Yet we get closer still.
