SWEET ISLAND GIRL

Early morn
Birds still sleep
Crickets warm
Not a peep
Coffee in hand
Dreams are free
Thinking of you
Thinking of me
Last night's prayer 
Has made it here
Rain soaked skies
Begin to clear
And what I see
On distant shore
Sweet Island girl
I long for more
Hear your heart
We are in tune
I love you so 
I'm coming soon

Pledge of love and loyalty

This pledge that l,Ntando, make today serves
as my guideline that I shall follow
happily, ungrudgingly and tirelessly
for the sake of our love life.
Indeed l am well aware of the fact that
the beauty of this pledge does not only lie
in word alone but in action as well.

For that reason in every season
I shall show steadfast commitment
to the implementation of this pledge
with a great deal of astuteness.
I therefore commit myself to be your
devoted and delivering husband for
all the years l shall live with you
on this earth.

I shall treat you with the love and care
you deserve as my wife.
Indeed l shall treat you with
the distinction and dignity
that is befitting of the queen of my heart.
That body, that bone, that breath
shall be my mine to treasure,
for sure;
a dearness to promote and protect
for dear life…and love!
I shall stand by and with you in all the
situations of our life.
If the situation demands that we sail,
sail we shall together.
If the situation demands that we
climb,
climb we shall together.

I know very well what l am getting into:
I am getting into a marriage that is
overflowing with blessings.
This marriage- with our mutual
commitment-
will stand the test of time.
I know very well what I am getting into:
I am getting into a relationship that
brims over with a transforming power
of love.

This marriage-with our
mutual commitment –
will transform naivety into maturity
troubles into challenges
pretence into practice
pride into progress
bachelorship into companionship.
I pledge to be your steward and partner
for all times.

I shall value the consultations
and decisions that we make as
husband and wife.
As head of the family I shall do nothing

 

to derail our love train for anything else
least of all for personal and selfish reasons.
Now and forever

I am your lawful and loving husband…
This pledge that l, Nothando, make today serves
as my guideline that I shall follow
happily, ungrudgingly and tirelessly
for the sake of our love life.
Indeed I am well aware of the fact that
the beauty of this pledge does not only
lie in pronouncements but in practice
as well.

For this reason every season
I shall demonstrate untiring love
and loyalty to you;
a love and a loyalty that is a living
embodiment of our marriage vows.
I therefore commit myself to be your
honouring, supportive and loving wife
for all the years l shall live with you.
I shall treat you with the love and care
that you deserve as my husband.
Indeed I shall treat you with
the dignity and nobility that is befitting
of the king of my heart.
On my mind it is always fresh
that I am the flesh of your flesh.
Green or grown

I am the bone of your bone.
I know very well what I am getting into:
I am getting into a relationship that
elevates me into a kingdom of wifehood.
I shall endevour to put my family first
with all the rights, obligations
and privileges that come with wifehood.
I shall endevour to wipe off and ward off
loneliness and lostness from our relationship,
seeking nothing but your companionship;
banking on your stewardship,
sinking together any hardship.
Since you are mine
I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

CANDLE 1st in Spanish then scroll down for english trans

VELA (CANDLE)First Spanish version, scroll down for English)
Yo ser‚ para ti.
Toda la vida que me queda la vivir‚ para ti
y cuando el tiempo haya terminado,
morir‚ por ti.
Dir‚ tu nombre
en cada vela que encienda, respirar‚ tu nombre.
Te susurrar‚,
cada oraci¢n que diga ser  siempre parte de ti.

Por toda la eternidad,
y as¡ ha sido y ser  siempre, 
y cuando deje este mundo,
aquello vendr  conmigo
en la luz de una vela.
Todo el mundo sigue girando, haciendo el d¡a y la noche,
y de la oscuridad a la luz,
ser s siempre parte de cada oraci¢n que yo diga.

Yo ser‚ para ti.
Como una fresca quebrada de la monta¤a que se desborda por ti
como una c lida brisa de verano
entre los  rboles para ti.
En el brillo de una vela,
todo lo que he sido o llegue a ser 
por toda la eternidad,
tu ser s parte de todo lo que yo haga siempre.
Yo ser‚ para ti.  

					
					Traducci¢n: Emilio J. Saavedra M.     CANDLE	
I will be for you.
All my life that is left, I will live for you,
and when time has run out,
I will die for you.
I will speak your name
in each candle that I light, I will breath your name.
I will whisper you,
every prayer I ever say will be part of you.

For eternity,
and forever it has been, and will always be,
and when I leave this world,
it will go with me.
In a candle light
all the world keeps on turning, making day and night,
and from dark to light,
you'll be part of every prayer that ever comes from me.

I will be for you.
Like a cool mountain spring that overflows for you
like a warm summer breeze 
through the trees for you.
In a candle glow,
everything I've ever been or will ever be
for eternity,
you'll be part of everything I ever do.
I will be for you.

Moments In Time

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

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

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

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

Twenty Crayons

(Dedicated to and in memory of the 
children who were killed in the 
Connecticut school shooting.)


Remember bells and keep your eyes 
from crying,
from the sights that held your 
screams today.
Leave your stolen dreams taped to 
the windows
and live each one until you fade 
away...

And should you need the words of 
sweet
St. Agnes.
Weeping as she says a prayer for 
you.
Standing with St. Nicholas on the 
threshold
Hoping you won't have to 
understand...
Why your mommy cries with folks 
around her,
And your daddy's head hangs to the 
ground.

And should you need the words of 
sweet
St. Agnes.
As she spreads her arms for you 
today
and all her fellow saints offer their 
verses.
Because today she cannot find the 
words to say.

Farewell now, sleep well and keep on 
smiling.
Twenty crayons, left upon the 
ground.
Farewell now, we promise to 
remember...
that twenty crayons have fallen 
down.

Think on these things

Go for a walk stop in the park
sit on a bench think for awhile
take your time look around
see all the things you've missed

Be very quiet and notice the sound
of a passing car or a distant train
children playing the bark of a dog
the birds singing in harmony

Take a look at a flower
see the color and shape
say a prayer thank the Lord
for the things you see and hear
Listen to the music

A Silent Prayer




                                      Born in sin, 
                                innocent some say,
               Silent the night, as it creeps on into day.
                        A Silent plea for forgiveness,
                         a silent sin, a sin of silence, 
                                      silent friend

…                             Souls silently praying, 
                           In silence,  a silent prayer is
                                            Saying.
                                           Save me…

                            In silence I cry, Silently I die….
                                      Pray for silence, 
                                   Silently pray twice
                                      A silent prayer

                                             Saying,
                                           Save me….

apologies

if i die before the day
heal the hurt that i have laid
on fragile flesh and innocent minds
that by chance became my shade

if i sleep eternal nights
save a prayer for the sick
sheltered in the poison ivy
by my hands now in contempt

I Still Remember

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

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

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

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

DREAM WORLD

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

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

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

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

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

The Wedding

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

Deep Hangover

Even as I sit here in pain-high as a kite,
I can't help but think of this madness which is my life,
I've endured more psychological trauma than the average individual,
and if you look deep into my eyes I'm sure you will see some residuals

This shit ain't cool and I'm no fool, I'm just trying to get by,
constantly asking God for help as I gaze up at the sky,
sometimes I can't help but wonder why he made me this guy,
there must be a purpose for all of this and I have no shame when I get high

I stay fly, all the time-trying to ease my mind because this shitty situation is just a moment in time. I'm going to stay positive, I know it's real and I know it won't make my problems disappear but at least I have a smile on my face and no more tears as I move forward year after year..

Words of Life

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

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


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

*chorus*

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

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

*Chorus* 

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

*chorus*

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

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

How to save characters

How to save characters

 

How to save character tonight and forever

Not to enter into the hell of verses

Not to suffer as I then

Angels not to paint with the broken wings

To not feel pain nowhere and never as I do

To redo the prayer and say besides I love you

 

There have entered into rhymes or words and scribblings

Love of a great hopes or disappointments

Beliefs or infidelity, ego rusted in a misery

Romances, dreams and the road solitude

And the poet repeatedly above sufferings sow only love

Kingdom of Prayers, dimensions beyond brilliance

 

Oh Lord how to save them but not bleed the muse

There enter and leave people without invitation, masks, friends and evils

Hot to save them without being wounded within my verses

In the chronicle of beauty and evil, in the secrets and betrayals

In mysteries, ancient symbolism murderous passions

Not entering or leaving except for goodness planetary prayers

I Seek to Love You

I seek to love You for Yourself,
Not for the profit I will gain;
If prison walls are all I know,
My love should grow and never wane.
Within myself I have not strength 
To love You, Lord, the way I ought;
But if I yield my all to Thee
Then You can do what I could not.

I love You, Lord, no more than I
Love those who closely share my life;
And if at them I take offense
Or pleasure find in any strife,
I have not learned to love at all.
So often I have failed the test
When most I thought I really loved;
Lord, I would learn Your way is best.

I must have You! Oh, more and more,
I need Your presence in my heart;
I cannot have too much of You!
It seems I've just begun to start
To know the fullness of Your life.
Your way of love is far too high
For my poor heart to comprehend.
I need Your love; my love must die.

So love Yourself, my God, through me,
And may my life a channel be
Where love in rivers, calm and clear,
Flows on in true simplicity.
Cut deep the gorge within my heart;
The stony contents wear away.
Let fountains of Your love and joy
Burst forth and brighten someone's way.

GURU

GURU

So I sent an inviting email
To a bunch of Internet Women
Asking them to join me for lunch
Set my lonely heart to sail

My Yahoo Bell rang a Lady replied
Star Heart my new Love I sighed
Her photo my future Mediterranean Bride
Feelings unleashed Love’s flood tide

I read her profile
Intelligent, Funny, Spiritual
Loves the Water, Forest, Mountains
Italian Goddess with a Mona Lisa Smile

Raven Black Hair, Ruby Red Lips, Smooth Olive Skin
A body built for sin
I need to be in
But first...Her Mind...Her Soul...I must Win


I received a second email reply
She wrote I might be her type of guy
My photo did not make her cry
She wanted to know more about my Spiritual Side...Had I ever been to Mumbai

God is this woman for real
She loves Foreign Films...She is already making me squeal
Yoga...Spirituality...She can make my soul heal
This girl might be the real deal


I woke up the next day strangely sad
I checked my email a Star Heart new message was there
Her GURU suddenly died..She said she could not talk
She asked for a break to sort things out...This was Bad

My desire, my heart on fire...cooled
Her Spiritual Leader overruled
Again Love played me the Fool
Another Lesson learned at Heartbreak School

I said a prayer to her Guru asking if I am the one for his Chela
Will Love unite our two souls
Will we come together
Will I be her Special Fella

So I drank some of India’s finest Chenin Blanc and went to bed
I dreamt of the Guru who I thought was dead
I was frozen with fear as he approached me and placed his hand on my head
I turned to run but my legs were like lead

The Guru told me in my current Life I will never find a Woman's Love
Poets are cursed from birth
The only Love they can receive is from writing about Suffering and Loss
The wife you seek was never born...She is still above

I fell to my knees and begged the Guru please give me hope
I hate being a poet I only do it to save me from the rope
I am a coward writing is the only way I can cope
The Guru warned me to be careful too much Chenin Blanc will make me a Tope

The hope I give you now is for all mankind
Love everyone and everything
Take no day for granted
Explore Spirituality and a Higher Power so your soul, body and mind will learn to be 
kind

Then the Guru struck my face and I awoke
This dream nightmare was no joke
The Guru wore a purple and yellow mourning cloak
Maybe I need more Chenin Blanc to give my soul and mind a good soak

In The Name of The Father

In The Name of The Father…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A prayer

Open up the mind and let new ideas flow, 
let the soul settle and create new roads, 
to lead your heart far and beyond. 
Get inspired to grow, 
motivated to know, 
all that is good and makes you grow,
wiser each day and stronger than a rock. 
May knowledge fill your soul, 
wisdom pour from your mouth when you let them know, 
that He lives in you and loves them all.
Listen to them all, 
for each one has some knowledge of their own, 
each one of them see's the world according to their vision. 
The good in some of them is shielded by bad thoughts, 
for the devil tries to bring them down, 
and make them doubt,
everything they have ever known. 
Let them know that God, 
rules everything that is beyond their control, 
that they should not fear the unknown, 
but they must trust in Him for He knows, 
the path that leads them home. 
Whatever they seek to know, 
is before them all they need to do is question, 
and the universe will respond.
Make them see through the wall, 
and God will break it all down and let them cross,
to the side they have always wished for.
My son, I hope that you will let them know, 
that they should move away from that which aims to control, 
their hearts to love vanity possessions. 
Let them know that people are meant to be loved, 
and things are meant to be used, 
not the other way round.

HEART BEAT

When I pull away, you push

I’m silent, like a single finger to my blush lips

motioning “shush”

I feel like a caged tiger

craving freedom and lovers flesh

a prisoner of your personal horror

I must digress

I loose myself, into my mystical, magical, mind

to keep this empty agony, from burning into

each minute, of my lifetime

my body, feels frozen to your touch

your kisses, cannot melt my hatred

toward your soulless lust

I am strong from within, I cannot,

will not

let him win,

A real live porcelain doll I have

turned in

Two

lines forming a cross, hold my inner eye 

for the Lords love catches my tears as I cry

when your fists, strike my body

a bloody mess, you leave my lie

punishing me for your insecurities

and false lies

a chance to escape you, this dream

has me hypnotized

each day of mine, ends in silent sorrow

and begins, with prayer filled sighs

For love, does not beat you behind backs

and then smile in your eyes

using such smiles to disguise

to the outside, false facial expressions

keep things trill

I pray, for the strength one day,

to fight my prisoner back

perhaps kill

Aussie Party Invitation

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Can you feel the adrenaline
'Cause I formally invite you
To my summer night cruise

It is dress to impress
So bloke's put on your coat and vest
And girls slip into your best clothes
as well as your stilettos

We will be rocking the boat
and sowing a few wild oats
From Seven-thirty to midnight
So please be flirty and nice 

There will be great food and drinks
As mister Dj spins and syncs
and lets the vivacious mood sink
On January Nineteenth

Beyond the Frontier

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verge of Collapse

Verge of Collapse…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In The Rain

Written June 6, 2013


The preacher read the gospel
And we sank into our tears
Tearing down the curtain
We've been behind for all these years

A baby leaves its mother
An angel drops its wings
Leave me bound against the wall
Dangling by a string

Sitting by the window
Hoping she'll remember me
Sitting by the window
Contemplating memories

Resolve your inhibitions
And you'll find me in the garden
Where the flowers drink champagne
And God is in the rain

My Guardian Dear

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Healing hands, Heal Me

Lonely life in the city
Same thing day in and day out
Subway, trains, planes and cranes
Needing a change without a doubt


There’s more to life than this
So everyone always says
My knight will come one day
Yeah, someday I will be his


He has the kind of hands
Strong and firm you see
Longing for him to take me
Mend me, caress me 
Healing hands, heal me


I see him everyday
Lunch time at the corner diner
Staring out the window
No one could look the finer


Daydreams as I watch him
Oblivious to my yearn
He goes about his day
When will it be my turn?


He has the kind of hands
Strong and firm you see
Longing for him to take me
Mend me, caress me 
Healing hands, heal me


So as the sun sets
On my life without love
Will I ever, ever have
That man I always dreamed of?


And as I close my eyes at night
Whispering as I dream
I say a prayer to God above
Only he knows what I need


He has the kind of hands
Strong and firm you see
Longing for him to take me
Mend me, caress me 
Healing hands, heal me


He has the kind of hands
Strong and firm you see
Longing for him to take me
Mend me, caress me 
Healing hands, heal me

The Pleas Within My Hallelujahs

Lord, a storm is raging- in our mist
Our nation suffers- with its twists
I know you see these roots of evil, don’t you?
We spend our time- getting ahead 
We’ve lost sight- of the blood you shed
With hope we raise our voice with Hallelujahs
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There are children hungry- in our streets
The population- ignores the weak
But you send your angels in their mist, now don’t you
There are murders committed -in our land
It’s time for us- to take a stand
Please hear our pleas in these broken Hallelujahs
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Reparations needed- for wicked deeds
Twas with sinful lust- evil bare its seeds
We need cleansing from immorality, please won’t you?
As we bend our knees- and bow our heads
We lay our plight- at your feet instead
Our prayers not lost within our Hallelujahs
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

The signs that you -are coming soon
Have been preached for years- with sudden doom
But with loving hands you’ll save your children, won’t you.
You’ll pluck your flowers from the weeds
Salvation winning over sinful deeds
With our faith we raise our voices in Hallelujah  
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

With humbled heart and meek attitude
We come to you, with our gratitude
And raise our voice with joyful Hallelujahs
Salvation bought with your blood depleted
Victory was won with death defeated
Your brides await the bridegroom, Hallelujah!!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Written for a Members Contest to write a lyric to the tune of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”
I decided to keep the Hallelujah’s in place because I think we need to hear more “Hallelujahs” in our world today.

Eternally Grateful

Sometimes God reserves the good things
For such time that our life is most steady;
You had struggled with what life had brought
Because God knew that you were not ready;

Now you're eternally grateful for those
Who remained when you sought their face.
Though the years of absentia seemed lost
Never once were you from under God's grace.

Sometimes at God's urging you did things
Like seeking out those you'd once known.
Finding that in prayer they were waiting
And that their love for you had just grown,

Now your life is finally what you wanted
A loving husband and others who care;
Now you feel valued and ensconced with love
A love that God has given you to share;


Written from an E-Mail from Shirlene

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.

Armageddon Pt 1

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

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

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

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

YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN WARNED

Queen of Heaven

And then the Props withdraw
And adequate, erect,
The House support itself
And cease to recollect
Emily Dickenson.

Queen of Heaven

Give me faith!
Ground me!
Tell me the sky will not fall in
the earth at my feet will
not give way- pray,
shelter us- mankind and me
from crazy predatory frenzy
Defend us from all destructive forces
Foster love of beauty, altruism-
generosity to our cores; a search
for grander possibilities

Teach us the solemn value of history
Keep us true to form, intuitive
imaginitive, instinctive
Attuned to the importance of
self- limiting responses

Not innocent in self delusion
Not virtuous for virtue's sake
Unique and irreplacable
Never notorious, false hearted
or didactic
No! not the sum of trivial
accumulations
Not the collection left behind,
of usesless irrevelancies;
objects beyond human memory
No! it must be us

Abiding echoes
of breath caught in wonder

Crown of Thorns

Crown of Thorns
A trace of thorns you are on my body, I am an eternal traveller, never stopping. You are the bitter predicament of my comfort, Traces of sensual pleasures - The mist of a veil is my constant reminder. You wound the stubble of my heartly thorns, I stand alone on the dusty conflagration Gazing towards an endless void, I am bridled with the burning pain of the thorns... My gaze tirelessly roves, Prickly are the thorns, With malediction entwined... I am drowning in a sweaty torrent, I am plunging into thorny depths, bloody and overworked from the struggle, I yield myself to the decision of fate.

A Silent Prayer

Was written on 9/11/07, dedicated to all the families of victims.


Many have died on that fateful day September 11, 2001
The pain in our hearts for those we’ve lost
The loss of so many precious lives it has cost
Everyone my heart goes out to you
Many tears will be shed
In each town, and city around the USA
For each  brother, sister, husband, wife, son, daughter, 
mom and dad, grandchild and friend
All of this is so very sad
So may America bow their heads right now and say
A silent prayer for everyone today.

So I Closed My Eyes

I saw you struggle to fall asleep
So I closed my eyes
I saw you on days when you were weak
So I closed my eyes
I saw tears rolling down your cheek
So I closed my eyes

I saw you drowning in your grief
So I closed my eyes
I saw you lose faith in your belief
So I closed my eyes
I saw you begging on the street
So I closed my eyes

I saw you sleeping on concrete
So I closed my eyes
I saw you without a meal to eat
So I closed my eyes
I saw you struggling through the heat
So I closed my eyes

Saw the cold immobilize your feet
So I closed my eyes
I saw you fighting not to weep
So I closed my eyes
I saw more in a year than most in a lifetime would see
And So, I closed my eyes

Morning Prayer

Moisture laden morning air
Wraps pale shawls round sleepy trees;
Wee birds sing in cool garden
Lifting praise on pleasing breeze.
Bees busy dusting flowers,
Packing perfumed honey bags,
Buzz low to kiss choice blossoms
Drooped 'neath dewdrops downward drag.
I worship, cloistered dawning,
Held still in God's supreme hand;
Linger, soft laughing moments, 
Giving grace for day's demands.

Redemption

If I pass through Gethsemane
To writhe in cold, dark agony,
If Fear's hounds track me through the night
Till like a wounded fawn in fright
I thrash through forests, strange, unknown,
That seem so far away from home,
Would love in me grow weak and die?
Would stones of hatred be piled high
To mark the plot, engraved by Shame,
"'T was here that love at last was slain!"
Would my heart lie entombed, content,
Or would the stones by Love be rent,
And Love o'er Hate triumphant pour
Because the sting of death Christ bore?

Or if my love were crucified,
Rejected, left to bleed and die,
If Sorrow pierced my fainting heart
With ev'ry bitter, burning dart,
I pray that love would stand the test;
That while my soul Grief did molest,
I would not stoop to hate the foe,
But yield to pain that Love might flow.
Would Love in me refuse to die
And live again though crucified?
Oh, that the seed felled by Hate's cry
Through suffering would multiply
And rise to reap the greater store
Because my Love your sorrows bore.

Nowhere Land

To nowhere land in thought I often go,
Whilst there, I've naught to please.
Temporarily, I escape both ebb and floe,
Of life, while taking things at ease.

There, I view not days long past,
Nor contemplate those which may remain.
But am inclined to prayer and fast,
For this nowhere land is another's domain.

Your Rose

Lord, I would be like Your own sweet Rose
When underneath the world's vain rush
I have been bruised; a wounded thrush,
Whose song is trapped within its throat,
Who cannot lift to voice one note
Its weary head and sorrow knows.

Though I be trampled 'neath the throngs
Of grasping, pleasure seeking souls
And waves of pain high in me roll,
I would be crushed in silence, deep,
That even my inmost soul would keep
And whisper not of how was wronged.

But ever, as with vengeance black,
They tramp the petals, limp and torn,
Would send forth fragrance, sweet and warm,
And bless the feet of that mad crowd,
Beneath their onslaught remain bowed
And by Your love turn hatred back.

It was Your wounding, sacred Rose,
The fragrance of Your love for me
Blown by the winds of infamy
Down from that dark hill, Calvary,
That brought Your passion home to me
And feeds the flower which in me grows.

Little Red Car 4th of July

     LITTLE RED CAR 4th of July
I must reach into the deepest heart of you
and someway become a little part of you.
And I must touch you with the thought of me
if for just one time, then become a memory. 

Summer rain is falling, every drop is you
and I don't know why they remind me so of you.
I have written you a song, and between each line 
is an "I love you," from this poet heart of mine.

There's a little red car that was made for you
you will have a prayer everywhere it's taking you.
And if I reach you, someday you might smile
at how I love you, though you knew me just a while.
.........................
LITTLE RED CAR THE SONG
I saw you driving in the rain.
Then I saw you drive by again and again.
Wonder who you are. I don't know.
But I love you in your little red car.

I wrote a song it's just for you.
If I see you drive by, I'll sing it for you.
Wonder who you are. I don't know.
I just love you in your firecracker car.

I'm higher than a rocket on the 4th of July.
My fuse is burning for you.
I'm hotter than a firecracker--I'm gonna go BOOM!
My fuse is burning for you.

EYE Don't See -Part 3-

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

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

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

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

Nourish me…and be my beloved friend

Will this friendship last forever?

Hopefully it has no end

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

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

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

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

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

Little Baby

When I first saw you, you were so quiet, you hardly cry.
I wanted to hold you, and hold you, and hold you.
But our cuddles were so short because we lived miles.

You showed me love through your bright eyes and warm smile.
I held you and kissed you and told you, "You're cute by far."

Oh, little baby,I love you, and it's so hard to say goodbye.
But little one, every night I say a prayer that you'll stay as sweet as you are, 
and you'll grow to become a man and make me proud by far.

COLDER NOW THAN EVER

Oh it's colder now than ever
Yeah, I'm frozen to the bone
My love left before the Winter
Now I'm shaking and all alone

Spring feels a distant season
We were so close back then
I'm stranded in a Nor'-easter
Praying this blizzard will end

Well it happened in a moment
Out of nowhere clouds came
A lover's argument unexpected
Now it may never be the same

Hoping for a modern miracle
Global warming to help me out
If Spring could get here tomorrow
Bitter Winter would be in doubt

And we could dance as lovers 
Then kiss under the moonlight 
Melt those fridged memories
Hold me and I'll be warm tonight

A Prayer of Obedience

Teach each of us Lord, thy loving ways,
On our own we just complicate things.
We experience bitterness and malaise,
Cleanse us Lord from what today brings.

The surgery you do requires no sutures,
In changing hearts that are as stone.
Because you have insight into our futures,
When in the valley's we're never alone.

We oft dig our heels in questioning a thing,
As a reluctant doer we're not being smart.
From God, we know, our blessings spring,
A Christian should always follow his heart.

Otherside

Two paths I cant choose
shoes racked, knee caps on the pews
Hands clasped we ask for a few
Key At Bats just to come through
Cause its the fact that we don't have a clue
about what is right or true
white or blue, its misconstrued
This world's view, so tried and true
Loves the lies that its spews 
Recite spite just to argue
On the news flea bites ensue
To make you believe what you should be like
tattoos,  earrings, abuse subdued's your hearing
cant move the muse that's sneering 
the proof is mute but blaring
This route of blues is wearing
my cold shoulders are veering
my soul's holstered and fearing
These sold soldiers are tearing, us apart
We need a spark, light this dark
torque the wrench and raise the bar
scorch the bench and make a mark
 were told were quenched, when were starved
excuse my french, but our shit's
stench does not come from our arse
These sand sharks that stand on shore
can't answer The question marks,
Were all the bark with no roar
Morality's at ground floor
trying to eat pork With salad forks
Just like mister Macklemore
this hits right at you're apples core

Hallelujah

This is king David's hallelujah
words for Leonard Cohen's beautiful melody hallelujah


Have you ever heard the song
That rang above the battle’s throng
Or has no minstrel ever played it to you
The notes are pure, the words are clear
The writer wrote for God to hear
The king of praise who praised in hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Your faith was strong, and your heart was bold
But both upon one night you sold
For the beauty and the lust that overthrew you
You shut your eyes, you held your hands
And blood was spilled by your demands
And silent was your song, the hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah


Then one day you heard a tale
Upon the head it hit the nail
Yet still your eyes were shut and all dark to you
You judged the crime of the unknown
But then you found it was your own
And you cried to God a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

You stood condemned, your hands were red
From the innocent blood that you had shed
You stood before the throne of Him who knew you
Your sin was judged, you could not run
For you had sinned against but one
The one to whom you sang the hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

So you knelt upon your knees
And you prayed the prayer of centuries
My Lord forgive this crime I’ve done before You
For I have sinned against You alone
Against Your name, against Your throne
You sang the broken, broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Your judgement came, with death begun
Your crown was taken by your son
And trails and bitter battles set before you
Yet still you sang to God above
Who still you served and sought to love
To Him you sang the holy hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah

He stood beside you through it all
He brought you back after your fall
And gave, once more, your crown and kingdom to you
He placed the sceptre in your hand
You saw your people, saw your land
And you sang to God in heaven hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
        Hallelujah

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

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

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

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

Make a Wish (Revised)

How quickly we forget
Dreams come true yes they do
Just believe make a wish
No matter who you are

Watch n see talk to that star
Remember wishes are free
Just ask the children
Laughing and playing

Make a wish
Angels singing happily
Make a wish
Sprinkling magic all round

Watch a miracle take place
A prayer for your neighbor
A kiss for mom n dad
Wishes come true

Make a wish
Just believe
Make a wish
Just believe
And seal it with heaven above

Time of Honey

Old memories, foggy and pink:
Time of honey in powerful link;
Air people, silent in the fearful grass;
Clouds in silver circles quickly pass;

White soft eyelids smoothly blink:
In prayer nights, the nights of ink…
Paddled tired water`s white waves;
Sincere love forgives and saves:

Soldiers who march through the ashes;
Children of the rain in drained marshes;
The monk painting the nipples that poke a wet blouse;
Glass birds in the  frozen flight, above the bleak house;

In a time-garden of the fruitful new breath
At the other side of the undiscovered wreath,
Dreams hung in the tempest`s trembling willow
While the emerald sorrow milted in innocent glow.

Measure for Measure

Let God and government be judge
In earthly crimes man does to man;
In hurts personal, I would turn the cheek,
Give coat and cloak, and hatred ban.
Make my hands large for giving,
Generous and capable tools used ably
For unselfish, loving service -
Binding wounds, setting captives free.
Make my heart large, by sorrow shaped,
Scraped, crafted, into golden bowl
Overflowing with unfeigned love -
Poured out upon a broken soul.
I should not tally scores but yield;
The blessed golden rule is true.
I would prefer my neighbor; judgment 
Is God's; He decides twixt me and you.
Measure for measure, shaken down,
As my Lord Christ dispersed to me  . . .
I try, but never will exceed
His inexhaustible treasury.

EYE Don't See -Part 1-

My eyes
Pour forth feelings
That I’ve felt in the past
They make my heart ache…
Take it all away…
Oh my God…
They’re making me sink in dismay

When will they break away?
When will they give me a break?

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

Eye don’t see
A happy ending in this scene 

My eyes
Journeys into the unknown
Who knows what will happen…
They’re like hidden treasure…
They’re buried far below…

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

Oh my God…
They’re driving me insane
When will they see my reflection?
When will they heal the infection?

Eye don’t feel
Raindrops of hope and relief 
All I feel…is grief…
Eye sense no peace…

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

Does He hear
My supplications?
Does He sense 
My fear?

My eyes
Conceals the tears that dare to spew out
I feel trapped and lost without a doubt…
They erase my delight…
They seek my hurt…
Oh my God…
They’re casting me away into the perilous sea

And I’m left in my solitude…
My eye’s weeping…
And I’m close to my demise…
Only to find myself disappear…
When will peace throw out my fear?

Eye don’t see
A ship in sight…to save me from my demise
My lifeless body...
Drifts away in the wild ocean...
Without a sound...
Without emotion...

Eye don’t see
A rope to hold on to…
My hope for peace
Has drowned…

Amazing Grace Wash Over Me

A prayer for those who are in dispair along the Gulf Coast due to the BP Deepwater Horizon 
oil rig explosion. A prayer for those who waited and their loved ones did not return, Amazing 
Grace Wash Over Thee.



Amazing grace wash over me.
My tears are a river to the sea.
Lord above, we know you know,
the oil that is washing upon our coast.
Amazing grace wash over me,
and lift my soul up to Thee.
Lord above, hear my prayer,
for those who are in dispair.
Amazing grace wash over me.
I lift my hands to God you see.
My prayer for those who were hurt,
and those who will never return to earth.
Amazing grace wash over thee,
families were left in disbelief.
Empty hands, their loved ones gone,
Lord Jesus, guide them safely Home.
Amazing grace wash over me, 
the oil is filling up the sea, 
from Louisiana to Mississippi.
Animals are dying,
and people are crying.
Amazing grace wash over me.

Miserere - God have mercy on me

 
Night after night,
the hassock in my room,
the only safe haven
against the bale anguish of times
reminding me of happiness gone by...
Worn from kneeling,
furrowed from wepping and sighing,
the purple velvet still carries traces
of time impressed with the Lord´s prayers...
Above, a crucifix in the wrath of God
reminds me of my insignificance...
My feeble and quiverving hands
are joined together,
convulsively around a rosary,
Hopelessly rising towards Thee
begging your -
Miserere, Domine!

EYE Don't See -Part 2-

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When will you be set free?

Eisteddfod of Wales

One of the cultures of Wales
is the eisteddfod* where 
people of all lands sing and dance
So many  countries try to get to
Llangollen travelling many days 
just to perform their dance, song or verse
Dressed in national dress of many hues
making it a colourful artistic event

The crowning of the Bard 
Is one of the ceremonies
At the eisteddfod in Llangollen
to the winner of the poem
written in free verse. Whoever wins 
is presented with a newly designed crown 
A trumpet sounds, prayer chanted
Nom de plume read all is revealed

"The Sound of Silence"(saralexripper506070)

                          1
Precious Carolyn my old friend
     I am God come talk to you again
Because a prayer you were praying
     left a seed while you were seeking
And your request that was planted
     in the name
               still remains
Within the bounds your 
                            solace
                       2
In restless dreams you,
     walk along
Narrow street of
     sacred stone
Neath a halo for a meek,
     child
Need turn your collar to the,
     cold of scold
When your mind be 
     stabbed by harsh of
           wicked night
                 that splits your might
                       and touch your soul in
                                solace
                      3
For in the wicked world I
      see
Your thousand rivals
      maybe more
People talking without speaking
      people hearing without listening
People writing poems
      that wisdom never shared
No minds dared
                 disturb the round of 
                                 violence
                       4
LOVE, say I they do not,
                            know
Violence wills it’s cancer
                            grows
Hear my words that I,
     might teach you
Take my love that I might
      reach far
But on deaf ears my words,
      millstone falls
             and echoed
In swells of
             violence
                       5
As the wicked bow and sway
           to the illusions hands have made
Agape signs flash it’s warning………………………..AA-G-Pay
       in the words that it keeps forming
Agape said ‘the words of the prophets
       are written in each sacred heart
 At the beginning of it all
         and whispers in the sounds of sol

Song of Praise

When the role is called up yonder
We will never from him wander 
We will praise, our voices raise
When the Father stands before us
And he crowns his own victorious 
We will sing, our voices ring.

And forever and forever and forever and a day
I shall never stop to sing this song of praises I will say
Praise the Lord God almighty Father, son and Holy Ghost
Praise to Jesus,…….my precious host.

When I stand before his Glory
I shall hear my life’s sad story
And shall plea, on bended knee
Then when Jesus says he washed me
With his blood and now I am free
I will raise, and shout his praise.

And forever and forever and forever and a day
We shall never stop to sing this song of praises and will say
Praise the Lord God almighty Father, son and Holy Ghost
Praise to Jesus,…….our precious host.

A prayer of the afflicted

Hear my prayer dear lord 
For life's too expensive 
That i can't afford 
I created prosperity 
But i did not have any 
I showed them love 
But they hated me cruelly 
I loved freedom 
But i was not free 
I had eyes 
But i couldn't see 
Remember my oppression 
Remember my affliction 
Control my heart 
And help me tread a good path 
Remember me oh God 
Be my guide 
Don't put me to shame 
But make me a good fame 
And a great name 
So that at the end 
My life will be a legend

INSIGNIFICANT

INSIGNIFICANT

I READ BETWEEN THE LINES TO GET TO THE TRUE MEANING
YET STILL IT ELUDES MY ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND
COMPREHENSION OF MY LIFE AND MY PURPOSE THERE-IN
ESCAPES FROM MY GRASP AS IF IT WERE A GRAIN OF SAND

WASHED AWAY IN THE TIDE 
OF THE CHAOS THAT ENGULFS ME
NO TRACE OF ME REMAINS FOR THE FUTURE TO SEE
HERE FOR A TIME THEN GONE, INSIGNIFICANT I AM
HERE FOR A TIME THEN GONE FOREVER 
INSIGNIFICANT, AS I AM 

THE SHELL OF THIS MAN LAY WEATHERED AND BEATEN
AGAINST THE STORM THAT HAS RAGED THROUGH HIS LIFE
PROMISE AND PROGRESS FOR A TIME WAS THE DREAM
NOW HIS FAITH HAS FADED AWAY
LIKE THE SPIRIT OF THE MAN 
THAT HE MAY ONCE HAVE BEEN

… SCATTERED, TATTERED, AND TORN, FALLEN AND BROKEN
NOT A HOPE IN THIS WORLD, NO PRAYER LEFT UNSPOKEN
UNANSWERED YES, IF THE TRUTH IS TO BE TOLD
FACING THE MIRROR TO RELEASE MYSELF 
FROM THE LIES THAT HAVE TAKEN HOLD OF ME 

WASHED AWAY IN THE TIDE OF THE CHAOS THAT SURROUNDS ME
NO TRACE OF ME WILL REMAIN FOR THE FUTURE TO SEE
HERE FOR A TIME THEN GONE, INSIGNIFICANT I AM
HERE FOR A TIME THEN GONE FOREVER,
INSIGNIFICANT, YES I AM

A Love that could not last

I loved you with all my heart and prayed to God that we would never be apart. But, I guess my prayer didn’t go through because now I’m left without you. With a single tear rolling out of my eye, I will never stop loving you. You were everything in the world to me and you will always be. I will never forget that you showed me how to love. When I thought all hope was lost you were there to listen to what I had to say. Now there’s nothing I can say or do to get you back to me because it’s all up to you. I just hope you make the right decision and come back to me. All I need now is a miracle so I can find a way back to your heart and make you mine once again and show you how much you meant to me. So I can fill this emptiness inside my heart that you took with you when you left. I knew everything about you and told you all my secrets and had so much trust in you that you would never do this to me but the nightmare has come true. And all I can do now is go back to my praying and hope this one will get through. Because there is never a day that passes by that I don’t think of you and all you’ve showed me, but now all I have left of you are the memories we’ve shared. You were always there for me with open arms, a smile on your face and those brown eyes of yours that I loved so much. That is all a memory now because you left me all alone in this crazy world of ours. Just always remember that I will still love you no matter what happens and it doesn’t matter how much you change because I will always love you.

Been Blessed

Will I have been standing on the sidelines, watching everyone go after their goals. I been missing out on the finer things that life has to offer. Seeing you  there reminds me of brighter days. Hearing your laughter, reminds me of the day my dreams all changed.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, wouldn’t change it for the world. Nothing sweeter than you. You’re that shining star, the beacon at sea. I thank the good lord for giving me you, nothing can change the love I have for you.

Will I have been standing on the sidelines, watching everyone have their fun. Now its later, you can see them down an out.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with having you as a daughter. You lifted my heart higher, each day I see you. You’re that shining star, the beacon at sea.

If I was a sailor, I would hurry home to you. Can’t get enough of that laughter, don’t like seeing a frown on your face.

Will I been standing on the sidelines, watching everyone reach to the stars. When I have one right here. Yes, I been standing on the sidelines.

I look at this world, and nothing can change my mind. There be trouble on the horizon, terrible times ahead. People getting hurt, always sad an blue. I put them in prayer as with everyone.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with writing these words. A pure melody, straight an narrow, they are flowing like a stream. Nine in the morning, an everything is going to be alright.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with this life. Wouldn’t to change it, wouldn’t to lose it. I would love to share, so here I sit writing these words.

	Oh, I got a melody running through my head, as I write these words. Sounding like country, maybe its an oldie. But none the less, its pure straight from the heart.

	Flowing like a river, steady as a stream. Let it span out there, like the clouds in the sky. Showing everyone in the world, that I got this love for them. My heart is being true, it is solid. This thing is flowing like a river, steady as a stream. Nothing rocky bout this love of mine.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with having a daughter - who is just like you…

‘Cause, I been blessed.
‘Cause, I been blessed..
‘Cause, I been blessed…

Till Date

stagnancy is something not new to me,
it's just have become overwhelming off late.
stale moments, motionless hours,
clinge to my identity as alter ego.



numbed emotions make even prayer incomplete,
stone heart mises nobody on earth.
cell bars' perpetual shadow make stripes on my body permanent
for fifteen years i have been standing at the same place



my world - squeazed into 7 by 4 ft rectangular room,
life has become a mere waiting station for death.



I till date believe I have not yet got accustomed to this place.

Hey Bartender

Written 2010


Flashing lights and sounds roll by
Hear the sound of muffled sighs
Sullen words cannot express
Just confess, and lift it off your chest
Told the priest would hear your cries
If you don't feed him blatent lies

Oh he's your only friend 
But he don't want to hear your sins
He's off doing his own thing
But it's far from priestly things
Oh he wont look in your direction
Let alone show you affection
Even when he hears your plea,
"Hey bartender please!"
Gone are all your hopes and dreams
All you ever sought to be
Heard from all across the room
Are many empty pleas,
"Oh won't you pity me?"

You can close your eyes and count to 10
Again and again
But he wont come back to help his fellow men
He was your only friend, but he left you all alone
To wallow in your sin
He failed to listen to your prayer
Now your lost in dark dispair

You can hide behind your cries
But he'll see into your eyes
Until the time you leave his bar
And wobble to your car

My Crucifixion

My Crucifixion 

One of a few regrets, I face my mortality
Time spent in dissension, self imposed exile
I face my God, drop in prayer asking for reprieve
My penance; life, my sentence; life
In what else can I believe

Judge, jury, and executioner
Pontius Pilate at my crucifixion
I see things that most do not want to see
Blood on my hands
My own blood from my own crucifixion
Feeling things that most do not want to feel 

I’m facing demons, living nightmares 
As I am forced to look inside at the real me
Who I was, who I am, different yet the same
Fighting through the battles, torn and scarred
The only way to get over the shame

We all make mistakes, admitting it or not
I too was only created in an image
Falling short, falling hard, bottomless abyss
Truly sorry for the paths that I may have strayed
For the monsters I’ve created

Still I have become my judge, my jury, and my own 
executioner
Pontius Pilate at my crucifixion 
Seeing things that I don’t want to see
Judge, jury, and executioner
Pontius Pilate at my crucifixion
Feeling things that I don’t want to feel
Blood on my hands
My own blood from my own crucifixion
Believing things that I don’t want to believe,
And all in the name of repentance...

Bless me father for I have sinned,
With my first breath of life I became tied to you
With a never-ending need for forgiveness
Always sorry for the very way of the world

As if through death I could enact a change...

Prepare My Heart

Verse 1
A movie taught me my calling
fiction brought angels thru cinema
climax's rise by acts falling
confusion's release thru a spiritual enema

Banging sounds can hurt the ear
its music carousing the purpose of pain
composing strength spawned by your fear
loud mad pestering aches essemble the sane

Chorus
Now, my greatest wish is for my best
to be what it takes to really try
for my strongest effort to manifest
life of what holds me back won't die

Verse 2
Now, its very clear what I need to do
but many long pauses formed hesitation
the wavering breeds delay of all new
fathering the burden of action's frustration

annuling growth, thus increasing the wait
patterns discouragement, casting doubt
of my ability to answer my fate
so I get lazy and begin to cop out

Chorus
Now, my greatest wish is for my best
to be what it takes to really try
for my strongest effort to manifest
life of what holds me back won't die

Reprise
I see how you try I know
champions reap what only training will sow
I won't cultivate how I need to grow
I won't prepare my heart for the go

Verse 3
Im lleft to my prayer to be willing
I feel the peace of God as he gives me strength
to activate self with His filling
to live my dreams and survive wait's length

A Hum

HMMM HMMMM HMMMMM
HMMM HMMMM HMMMMM
I can hear a hum
HMMM HMMMM HMMMMM
It is getting closer
HMMM HMMMM HMMMMM
It became my heart beat

A union of voices emerged from somewhere near
Drums slowly began to play
HMMM HMMMM HMMMMM
The hum once more

I close my eyes to seek 
I close my eyes to identify the hum, voices, and drums
I close my eyes and seek

Tears dropped from my eyes;
A prayer was sent...

Just Praising

I'm praising the Lord, will you come and join me,
Praising His name all through the day.
I'm praising the Lord, will you come and join me,
And we will be blessed along the way.

Singing praise to Him just makes me happy,
Iknow that my prayers He will fulfill.
He is my Father and He loves me,
So I shall always do His will.

Praising the name of the One who loves me,
Jesus, He came to set me free,
I was a sinner on lifes highway,
He was the One who showed the way.

Let your praise reach up to heaven,
There it will please the Heavenly Host.
Honest prayer is sure to please Them,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Ode to Snow: Snow Week

Verse 1:
I’ve been in my house for way too long
So now I resort to write this song
For all of the people who would agree
To very simple heartfelt plea

Chorus:
Snow please go away.
We hope that you’ll return another day
You’ve outdone your welcome you see
So I hope you will listen to me
                                         Oh please,
Verse 2:
The first day I was amazed to see
That God had given snow to me
The second day I was real surprised
To see that the roads were still real iced
Third day had come my heart was blue
The fear in my mind had just come true
School had been cancelled for the day
So to our God this prayer I laid

Chorus:
“Make the snow go away
We pray you’ll make return another day
Please Lord don’t you see
School is where I really need to be”
                                          Sincerely Me,
Verse 3:
Fourth day a feeling came to me\
Frustration, boredom, and sadness three
Fifth day I ventured to the yard
Seeing the ice was very hard
I couldn’t take that day anymore
So I started season 3 of 24
Maybe this snow would never leave
Until I lose excessive sleep

Chorus:
I can’t stand you snow
Someplace else is where you need to go
My toes are numb I can’t find my brain
I don’t suspect I’ll ever feel them again 

Verse 4:
The sixth day came I was so glad
To get out the house with my dear dad
At the Starbucks I left my purse
Proving I’d lost my mind of course
Tomorrow is Friday a snow day too
I’m hoping the sun will come melt you
Activity low, I am so bored
But now I’ve run of guitar chords

Chorus:
In this house I’ve been for way too long
It’s given me time to write this song
Snow listen to this request I plea
My friends and family would agree
                                              With me…..

OLD SEA MAN S PRAYER

VERSE ONE 
Heavenly father
Grant me safe passage to Elysium
For each time I think I have reached the end of the race
I am back to the start
Deliver me Oh Lord
From blood sucking demons
That derails one’s progress
And grant me hope
Grant me life
And grant me success

VERSE TWO
Heavenly father hearken to my cries
I have fallen into deep waters
And I have seen many a man die
Protect me Oh Lord
From the wrath of my enemies
And make me as strong as a rock
Give me victory over my enemies
As you have given Zion over her foes
So that I may smash the heads of the Leviathans with massive blows
Your covenant with my fathers is to defend and protect my seeds and I
Make me immortal Oh Lord so that I can live and never die
And as long as the sun endures and the universe exist
And in war transform me to a warring monster or the king of beasts
Send me manna Oh Lord from your heavenly abode
And command your angels to meet me half way across the road
Deliver me Oh Lord
When my foes mock me with their lashing tongue
And I become an object of derision
Or insulted in their abusive song
I am but a man
And a mere mortal
An infinitesimal being
I am nothing
But by your amazing grace
I will be something
I have seen many a great man fall from the skies like stars to zero
I have seen many a useless slave become a king and a hero
Oh Lord but if you bring science and wonders into the life of this unworthy servant
I ll worship you
Praise you
Glorify you
And serve you until all my hairs becomes gray
And until my days on earth will expire
And when this body becomes an empty shell
Soon it will be swallowed by the mouth of the grave
Where it will retire
My voyage on earth will end
And so will us all

Let Love Reign Master

When hurt and disappointment come,
When all I worked for seems undone,
Keep bitterness from creeping in.
Keep heart and soul above the din
Of all loud passion clamors for;
Vengeance belongs still to the Lord.

 Help me repay evil with good,
 Injustice with true brotherhood,
 Indifference with keen desire
To keep my heart an altar fire
Where coals of love burn bright and strong,
A love that lives in spite of wrong.

When cutting words at me are hurled
And lips of those I love are curled
Into a sneer of proud disdain;
When evil tongues are spears of pain,
Lord, I would yield to Your control:
Let love reign master in my soul.

Requiem For the Absolute

Take the sun away, and find me in a new day
The laws of this land are so hard to obey
You've showed me the way where we must all g
oTaken from me this beautiful sanctuary
Required till this day was your frozen soul
 
Blessed art thee for you have conquered 
So gently you unwrapped my hopes and dreams
Lost and numb my heart beckons for the day
 
Relinquish these hands searching for my soul
Find a way to make me through this day
Requiem for the absolute- a prayer that cannot wait
Requiem for the absolute-I'll wait till the hymns be said
Requiem for the absolute- the dream that will not end
 
Barriers that create I create-- her suffering the cause of pain
While you sang to me about the dead star so innocently
So I came to thee while your eyes were glistening ever so sweetly
Inspired by thee I can't wait to see the day (the day)
when I have got you in my grave 
 
Relinquish these hands searching for my soul
Find a way to make me through this day
Requiem for the absolute- a prayer that cannot wait
Requiem for the absolute-I'll wait till the hymns be said
Requiem for the absolute- the dream that will not end
 
Relinquish these hands searching for my soul
Find a way to make me through this day
Requiem for the absolute- a prayer that cannot wait
Requiem for the absolute-I'll wait till the hymns be said
Requiem for the absolute- the dream that will not end

This Christmas

Wow another year has come and gone 
What a year it has been
So many things we wouldn’t change,
yet so many we would
As the new year approaches we all will set goals for ourselves 
and our family’s too
As we do this let us remember the true meaning of Christmas
Let us not forget that if it wert for Our Lord Jesus Christ we wouldn’t be blest with the many 
things we have today
So with this let us celebrate the ultimate birth, the birth of Gods sun
Let us all decorate with bright vibrant coolers, sing his praises and give of ourselves in his 
honor   
Let us all stop, be still and think of those not with there family’s this year
Let us open or hearts to those less fortunate than us
Let us all say a prayer for our neighbors, family, and friends for there safety in the coming 
year
As we go forth in the following year let us all carry Gods love and pass it around to each and 
every one we meet

Dreaming In My Reality

Breathing so hard
Mind racing fast
Where the hell am I?
That's all I can ask
Unfamiliar faces
Way too familiar pain
Same ass picture
In an unfamiliar frame
My vision is blurry
But, Temporarily becomes clear 
No matter the clarity
Im still drowning in fear
Lack of understanding
Searching for a clue
Wait, this is a dream
So what should I do
I control this scene
That's at least thats what i thought
I pushed and I shoved
I yelled as I fought
He's trying to keep me
He wont let me escape
My eyes wont open
Its as if they were sealed with tape
I feel like I'm in a episode of a twisted "Criminal Minds"
I see whats happening
At the the same time I'm still blind
I find myself somewhere different every single time
O lord please wake me up 
Now your seriously playing with my mind.
Now they are laughing at me as if this dream was all real
Whats this misleading concept
Whats the freakin deal?
Sweat now soaking my pillow
My eyes somehow unlatched
Looking around in a dark room
Felt like I was just in a crash
I must get up and walk this dream away
It felt so real as if my reality contained this dismay
Cold water against my skin and a prayer on the side
That's only thing that would rid my dangerous illusions
No longer did i want to fight.
Why these reoccurring dreams?
What is my reality trying to say?
Until i figure out this puzzle 
All I can do is pray

Kioshi Love <3

Before we are awake

If we die before we’re awake 
I hope we've  embraced the 
life God created.  In a world 
that’s faded I pray the Lord 
keeps us safe till the day we 
see his face. 

When we lay down to sleep I 
ask the lord to allow  the world 
to rest in peace and If we should
die before we’re awake I pray God 
forgives us all for our mistakes.  

If anyone is in terror with the pistol
to their head and feels no one cares
I pray the Lord to be near and help
them bear and if they should die before
they’re awake I hope they've thanked 
the Lord for guiding their way out and
allowing them to live another day. 

If anyone dies before their time, I hope
they've appreciated the lord for being 
there through the Dark nights and rewarding
them with the bright morning light.

If we should die before we’re awake, I pray the
Lord for our soul to take.

Seeking faith and redemption

Mercy and faith will rain
To wash away sins that stain
The birth of a seed or grain
A chance to be reborn again
One who was before left behind lain
Only hopes, promises and faith remain
Its all in your unprecedented plans be it forever refrain
Your Word that I will follow and proclaim

On My Knees Again

ON MY KNEES AGAIN

I thank you Lord for giving me
A chance to thank you on my knee

When at night I do forget
I wake and know I will regret
To thank you for this very day
I pray you hear me when I say

I thank you Lord for everything.
I have to thank you for the bad
But Lord I know you’ll always be
Beside me always loving me.

You are the light within my soul
I’ll shout it from the highest knoll. 

When things don’t go the way I plan,
I wait for you Lord, yes I can.

At night I need to let it be
Don’t take it back Lord
You shall see.
That when I give it back to you
I need to wait and let it be,
You’ll answer ever prayer I say
But always when it’s Your own way.

My Dream

My dream is of a better world
Where rivers run free,
Where our waters are unpolluted 
By debris thrown in by humanity.
Where crime is not known and weapons rare,
My dream is of a world
That overflows with care.

My dream is that we love each other,
Not by the colour of our skin,
But by the goodness that lies within.

Why is there envy?
Why is there hate?
Why shoud you be executed just standig by your gate? 
Why mut there be famine?
Why must there be war?
We have repeatedly asked these questions before.

Parents lead and children follow,
That's not always the case as we already know.
My prayer is that one day all this will cease
Then we can envision worldwide peace.

A Mother Sings To Her Son At Dusk.

Lie down right here, my little one,
and fill your head with dreams.
Don't worry what went wrong today,
Life's never what it seems.

There's world enough and time enough
to trim the edges that are tough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

Make room inside your little head
for all the angels up above.
I'll stroke your cheek and whisper so
You'll know your mothers' love.

There's world enough and time enough
to smooth the edges that are rough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

The day will come when you go off
to seek your fortune far and wide.
Remember this when off you go:
I am always at your side.

There's world enough and time enough
to trim the edges that are tough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

Someday you'll know the softest joy
when I won't be here to see.
You'll hold the sweetest fruit on earth,
then both say a prayer for me.

There's world enough and time enough
to smooth the edges that are rough.
There's world enough and time enough,
There's world enough and time.

A Day Of Thanks

On this special day we give thanks for all we have been
granted in life.
Often forgetting those less fortunate than us.
So as we gather with our loved ones to enjoy each others
company let us take a moment and remember those that are
alone and have less than us.
Say a prayer that although they may not have someone to
share this day with or may have little to eat that God
continues to watch over them as he always has.
Pray that they know this without a doubt and that their
faith never falter just because they feel alone and
scared.
Let them be reassured that they never walk alone.

Candle

     CANDLE	
I will be for you.
All my life that is left, I will live for you,
and when time has run out,
I will die for you.
I will speak your name
in each candle that I light, I will breath your name.
I will whisper you,
every prayer I ever say will be part of you.

For eternity,
and forever it has been, and will always be,
and when I leave this world,
it will go with me.
In a candle light
all the world keeps on turning, making day and night,
and from dark to light,
you'll be part of every prayer that ever comes from me.

I will be for you.
Like a cool mountain spring that overflows for you
like a warm summer breeze 
through the trees for you.
In a candle glow,
everything I've ever been or will ever be
for eternity,
you'll be part of everything I ever do.
I will be for you.

                                                     We”ll Go Up
As  we  look  on  high
Seeking  life  everlasting
Crying  out  to  God
Who  is  there  for  the  asking.

Oh  God  we  cry
Save  us  from  here
Where  no  pain  is  known
There’s  no  reason  to  fear.

We  will  suffer  no  more
In  despair  or  defeat
No  tears  will  we  cry
No  mistakes  to  repeat.

                                                    ( CHORUS)

As  we  go  to  Our  God
With  arms  open  wide
He”ll  gather  us  up
To  the  heavens   divine
He”ll  soothe  all  our  cares
Oh  devil  be  aware
Up   we  go  to  the  King.

Forever

Romance eliminates division. 
A gifted partner to listen.
Love seemingly present in full.
Confused from the tempest’s pull.
Rule of Thumb: Never look a fool.

Eternal soul mates today.
Yet a mere three year stay.
Vows unfulfilled. 
Contract distilled.
Ethereal Mountain to Hellish Hill.

Cherished independence, but a heart’s demand.
Desire for dependence, and now an overdue reprimand.
And then an unfortunate self-loathing; exile in dismay.
Where’s the hopeful light, a romantic incentive to pray?
Needs so long ignored; in shame, no prayer to say.

Is it a natural instinct to seek a companion?
Or is it a defense mechanism, a social compassion?
Ultimately, results of a detrimental fashion.
A prized domestication sunk to the world of nether.
Left without a soul sincere to believe in forever.

Always Always Always

      ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS
Abbreviated by an early autumn night
the summer, once tormented by a torrid sun,
relented to September, as if dying might
give reason to all things the heat and time has done;

The stalks of corn, if touched, explode into a dust,
and water tables sink down to a new found low,
but love always goes on, as love, it always must,
through drought and flood, and shortages that come and go.

There in the field, an old man points his maple cane
as if a prophesy, and something we should know,
always, always, always, there will be too much rain,
or not enough, and only love can ever grow.

There is a blizzard brewing, it's part of the plan,
up in the wastelands north, with tons and tons of snow;
and on a winters' morn, snow will be deeper than
the fences seperating everything we know;

and how the wind will howl, and everything will freeze,
there's little we can do, but hope for early spring,
always, always, always, we fall down to our knees
in love and prayer that times like this always will bring.

Next spring the rains will always fall, perhaps too much,
for some the devil's arm will reach down from the sky,
and twisting life about, there is no gentle touch,
excepting love, and that is all that gets us by.

Always, always, always, love has to always be,
though borrowed from the wind, though sought in pain,
though snatched out of the grip of some cotastrophe,
if not for love, there'd be no welcome summer rain.

SUPPLICATION

One morn I went to a Temple
My Lord God to pray,
I rang and rang the hanging bell
Our world to be happy and gay!

To a Mosque I went one day,
Sat and prayed 'fore my Master:
In our hearts ever stay
And make us all human better!

Once I went to a Church too
With God in close touch to feel,
I prayed with a heart true
For all the poor a daily meal!

And today a Gurudwara I visited
To worship my holy God,
Joining my palms I humbly prayed
To cast evil 'th His divine rod!

Mighty mighty wicky wicky mighty mighty woe woe

           
	Mighty mighty wicky wicky mighty mighty woe woe
Wouldn’t it be cool to be like G.I JOE
Cruising with Barbie goin to the might rock show
Couldn’t make heads or tails of where to go
Sometimes toys flow from the mind I find
With different thoughts of all kind of ways
  	Mighty mighty wicky wicky mighty mighty woe woe
Only you can prevent forest fire
Finding the nature of human desire
Comic books are cool I read heroes for hire 
	Mighty mighty wicky wicky mighty mighty woe woe
Stuck in a paradox of the mind 
Answers escape the madness that I find
Music is a relation to the world you see
It’s the answer to a prayer from me to you
	Mighty mighty wicky wicky mighty mighty woe woe

a Novel Time

Sometimes you learn to look at things
As if they are to get no better

Like single mothers on the first days of January
A hymn for the things you’d love to change 
A prayer for the things you cannot 

There is no new year for people like me 
Only a continuation of stress to be 
Life deals us blows and my songs are tired 

I’ve heard that happiness is a tale untold
In order to pursue this wish
One is required to hide beyond blue skies

Like life is love
Death is a cold hug
I’ll patiently wait

One Day In April

I remember after three weeks of fasting
and praying with heart and soul,
pleading to The Lord that He help me,
that He hasten to me and console.

Then one day in April,
as I stood by a mighty river:
I looked and suddenly there before me,
appeared a vision that caused me to shiver.

The vision was about to speak to me.
I grew pale and weak with fright;
then fell to the ground face downward
unable to bear the sight.

His eyes were like pools of fire,
with feet and arms of polished brass;
and like the sound of a mass of people
His voice roared strong and vast.

He placed his hands upon me.
I was lifted up from the ground;
and as my knees were trembling,
the voice began to resound:

"Oh dear Daniel, beloved of God,
listen to what I have to say:  Do not  fear!
For I have been sent here
to answer your prayer this day."

"Soon a mighty battle will come to pass
evil powers will fight against The Lord;
but God's faithful will hold firm until the end...
then the righteous shall receive their reward at last."

Daniel Chapter 10

With a Pocket Full of Lies and Some Vanilla Skies- Part 1

I must say art isn’t easy
Desperately trying to please everyone 
Many of my scattered verses fail to appease me 
I’m well versed in pain
I must say heartache and love are one in the same 
These scripts will put the rest to shame 
The poets are all the kids who try to fake it 
We take it all to heart 
Heart ache is where we got our start 

Smartly I arranged my words 
Just another fencing battle without swords 
Just another one of my songs with out chords 
Always exotic with a melodic sense of belonging 
I can be calming or I could be bombing the last little hopes 
I can play it cool 
Play the fool 
I can be anything within a few simple phrases 

This still amazes me 
I can see the world when there is nothing to see 
I can paint a picture of how everything should be 
And I search high low way below
Sometimes slow always fast 
Few will know 
When I pass and I will go 
Like the wayward winds flow 
Taken on a prayer 
A shot through the dark into the shadows gone like thin air

And I’ll be nowhere and everywhere 
But baby when you need me I’ll be there 
This is a realization there is no easy way out
Yes I know not what life is about 
And this grout in this bathroom tile holds me glued for a little while
Before this porcelain throne I stand trial
“So kid how do you manage to defile yourself so well”
Please do tell the mirror beckons 
I guess I reckon that I like to forget for a fleeting second 
And I hold no fear in meeting an end 
I’m dying to be greeting this long time friend
So bring me that end
Send me to that horizon

JUST LIE

VERSE 1:
I’ll never forget our first date
Rushing Home even though we were late
I asked what to say if they asked why
And without hesitation, you said just lie

VERSE 2:
When the big decision came about
And suddenly my mind was filled with doubt
When I became so timid and shy
You consoled me by saying, honey just lie

CHORUS:
Just lie; Lie here in my arms
Trust in me, and I’ll keep you from harm
Believe in me when times get hard
When you’re with me you can let down your guard
I can give you things money can’t buy
So without hesitation darling, just lie

VERSE 3:
A few months later I found out the news
It was all my decision but I couldn’t choose
So when I told you it was too late
We had nothing but nine months to wait

VERSE 4:
After the birth, I knew something wasn’t right
It was hard, but I had to give up the fight
With my last few breaths, I began to cry
As you grasped my hand, I’ll never forget your reply

CHORUS:
Just lie; Lie here in my arms
Trust in me, and I’ll keep you from harm
Believe in me when times get hard
When you’re with me you can let down your guard
I can give you things money can’t buy
So without hesitation darling, just lie

I’m lying now sweetheart, yet that’s not where I’ll stay
I’m with you in your heart and every prayer you pray
This is not yet our last good-bye
And when the pain becomes too much honey, just lie

quiet

the tears quietly leave my eyes
but their path does not seem
to have a rhyme or reason
and they have no destination
no purpose but to outline
my ‘self-imposed misery’
with glistening and watery pain

i want to cry
every hour of the day i want
to cry out and shout my anger
at a world that doesn’t give me
answers to my desperately
fervently whispered questions
and i wish on every first star
i can find hoping
that my prayer will be granted
and this all ends

lost and dead inside
i float through an existence
filled with silent sobs
and nights of lasting agony
not from anything valid
just from the disgusting and despised
life i make my self live

yet if i knew how to escape
without being gone forever
if i knew how to fix
this hole in my heart i would
do it and be happy after
and not have to worry about this
pressure in my chest and this constriction
in my throat and the nasty creature
that gnaws at my insides
the creature that is anger  and
depression two sides of the same coin
with terror sandwiched in between

these free-flowing thoughts that course through
my fingers and out onto this screen
do not seem to have direction or any
order and truly they don’t 
except to highlight the darkness in my 
soul that buries deeper into the shadows
every minute the blackness that engulfs me
grows stronger and i pant
out of breath i try to reach
the lighted surface but am held down by
the tendrils of agony that have
wrapped around me

the tears quietly leave my eyes
but i make not a sound
alone as i am
there is no need to let anyone know
of the knife protruding from my chest
and the needles that pierce my mind
letting these ramblings leak out 
and drip onto the page
where they lose all meaning and are
only a jumble of words trying and failing
to shift into coherent sentences
akin to the pieces of my life
that are racing to fit together
into the picture they are supposed to 
create but the salt water is melting the
paint and the colors are bleeding 
until i am unrecognizable just
pigment no living painting
in the sight which is blinded by
the tears that quietly leave my eyes
and drop to the floor.

A Birthday Prayer

This birthday prayer I send to you,
I pray your day is grand.
May all that comes your way today,
Be touched by God's own hand.
I have you in my thoughts today,
don't think you're growing old.
For you're just getting better,
like fine wine, so I'm told.

A Soldier's Love

He bent to pick up the gun that had fallen to the ground
Wiped the sweat out of his eyes and carefully looked around

Although, he knew this may be the end 
Tomorrow might not come
He prayed a silent prayer 
There was still work to be done

He doesn't enjoy this
But, knows no other way
To protect his people 
From the ones who lie in wait

To kill the innocent
They never think twice
Blinded by hate
Hearts colder than ice

He remembers the towers
How they fell that day
The heartbroken families
The hurt that won't go away

And, though he is afraid
He wants to do right
So, he picks up his gun
And walks into the night

Personally, you'll never know him
But, he's a father, a husband, a brother, a son
With family that will always miss him
Because, he had the courage not to run


Dedicated to all the brave men and women that are fighting for our 
country......Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his 
friends.
John 15:13

The Rapture Rebirths

I waited untill the day fell off
out of scene and out of tune
I sung so loud my last tear prayer to myself to relieve myself
but im afraid that this won't make me stay,without going insane

are we desperate to all follow along
the lines of the lonely and dreamy eyed holes
are we all playing make believe with ourselves or are we just really undone
why,I have found my own history to be complete so now I believe
I can finally fall fast asleep and finally breathe

Cant I change your mind this time,so suddenly you regret your notice of me
so what have I done to deserve this knife in my back
are you the one,you are unlikey to be saved
why can't you just turn away or should I just go and stay?
what if this world was a stange of it's own or maybe it's just as it seems.....

A prayer To God The Father

When beset with daily troubles,
that I cannot understand.
I will lift my eyes toward Jesus,
I'll clutch His nail scarred hand.

For it's your son and I love him,
He is with me every day.
Always watching, always listening,
guiding me Lord lest I stray.

My prayer is to be a witness Lord,
to those not serving you.
While eagerly doing and pursuing,
little things you'd have me do.

Not for worldly fame or glory,
for I know they will not last.
But in memory of the Christ child,
come to earth to cleanse our past.

So as this year quickly leaves us,
and You a new one usher in.
May my thoughts be ever mindful,
of all the things that might have been.

Open

I have tried everything I know to find you
To have you in my life again
I can now admit that I made a mistake
I never intended for our love to end
I never intended to hurt you
It pains me to know that I did
I do not want you to make a new life without me
I have never felt as though I needed anyone
I have always taken good care of myself
Figured a way out of all my problems
I can’t fix this
And it is killing me
I wish this was a dream
A warning for me to heed
Every corner that I turn leads me to a dead end
This feeling inside of me is real
I know that you are the one for me
My heart never forgets you nor do I ever want it to
I say a prayer in hope that you will feel what I feel 
Please don't let me leave this earth without you returning to me
I just love you 
I just do
I will never love anyone the way I love you
I will never feel for anyone the way I feel for you
I have never needed anyone the way I need you
I am afraid to need anyone but me 
I hate depending on people for the fear of disappointment
I am willing to let my guards down and be with you
Love you 
Laugh with you, cry with you and embrace you
It is this deep an intense feeling inside me that let's me know
That it is real
I am not asking you to rescue me 
To just simply love me
For as long as we can be
I know things that I never knew before
Like a relationship is work
If you want it's full worth
I want to work with you
This is urgent
I am losing my sanity
The harder I try to keep it together
The crazier I feel
In essence I guess I am crazy in love
Wishing you to be crazy in love with me

Just Your Touch Lord

On this special day Lord,
I shall not ask for much.
Just your arms around me,
That I might feel your touch.

That your nail scarred hands,
Be continually upon my life.
Bless my comings and goings,
Lord, watch over my wife.

For the little things you've done,
Of which I've not oft thought.
For your plan of salvation,
That through, Jesus, was bought.

That today none may stray Lord,
Be my solemn prayer for others.
That y our kingdom be enlarged,
With many sisters and brothers.

Through mistake should I take,
Someone for granted this day.
Bade me swiftly go to them,
Seeking their forgiveness I pray.

And should one carry great burdens,
Or have some genuine need.
May I share with them the word,
Then back it up with some deed.

A pretty full order Lord,
From one not seeking much.
Should you not grant it all,
Then just give me your touch.

For with that I'll be content,
And today I'll not idly sit.
But be a spirit filled person,
Because of You and of it.

One's Inner Mind

Anger and sadness combined into a blend.
Expressing your feelings that lie within.
Not able to understand or say anything.
Your life you live, the impossible seems like a dream.
Heated and tired of self-playing games.
While hurting others, don't point or say no ones name.
Everyone is or should be treated the same.
Listening to my heart can make a torch burst into flames.
Proving your point on paper, not able to say a word.
Can't understand this feeling, feeling lower than a curb.
Pain is love, but pain can be worser than that.
Because pain falls into anger, leaving sadness without a partner at back.
Feeling lost, helpless and hurt within my eyes, I blink.
Able to stand, but fall within every 5 steps, I sink.
Needing a powerful prayer only signifies that I need God’s help.
Pain and unhappiness is something I've always felt.
Wishing all my inner feelings I couldn’t ever kept.
Wanting to say how I feel, but my words hold me back.
Eager to say something, but there's no love on my track.
The love I had was bunched into a pack.
It was thrown away, while my mind was hacked.
Waiting to speak and let my mind flow and go through.
Still waiting for my impossible dreams to come true.

IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

In the house of the Lord...
Satan is not allowed,
only holy people dwell into it;
and they burn incense every sunrise and dawn, 
to keep Him away from the throne of Jehovah God!
And they sing praises
to Him, the Holiest One,
and to Christ they ask compassion
for the earthly ones who are weak...
and can't humble themselves and be exalted! 



Angels gather to do His will,
and Jesus among them smiles,
to share all the glory with the Father;
A chorus arises and echoes through the serene and open Heavens,
to make all creations bow to their Master!
I bow down to my kind and loving God,
whose face I am not permitted to see,
lest awe and death smite me;
touch me, Jesus and heal me...
with those hands, where nails entered and made you scream and bleed! 

 

If sin made me lose divine wisdom,
I repent of my foolishness and whisper 
my profound prayer of forgiveness;
welcome me back into Your house, Lord...
and I will perpetually obey your commandments!
The vanity and the blindness 
will be cleansed by the waters of Holiness,
and all my imperfections You will not remember!  



In the house of the Lord,
only peace can be heard and purity
can be felt in the verses of the hymns;
let me praise you with Your angels indefinitely,
and finally behold Your radiant face!
In the house of the Lord,
all His children are loved equally,
and they serve Him with reverence.  In the house of the Lord,
Christ shares His father's throne to judge every soul;
and on the right side, he receives all the worthy!

My Prayer

Daily, I pray and pray…,
i pray to be a creature of  Hoseenu. 
I pray Immanuel’s blood to cleanse me,
to wash me thoroughly.

I pray to live while existing,
a shower of El-shadai rain on me,
Jireh’s waterfall of favor,
i pray to swim in His baaner of blessings.

So He can use me as a pencil in His hand,
to manifest His will for me,
to grow in His production,
and grow in His works.

What more do I pray for…?
What more? 
To be a vessel in his ship,
and a General in wars.

A conqueror in battles,
And a winner in contest.
How I wish I did not live any stone unturned?
How I wish?

With the globe in His hands,
with the map of the earth, 
He can turn it to accommodate my other wishes
My pray that my prayer never ceases

Let Me Live

What would I do if I didn't get to see your gray hair anymore?
Your old age magnifies me it sends a needle through my door. 

When I was young, I didn't think people could ever grow old it makes you see 
how your mind leaves you lost without wrongs.
Digging through the ground I see bones, stretched out bodies, and I say a prayer 
to Heaven let their souls be eternal.

I lost the destroyed dream.
Why must we wake?
Why do we fall?
We all suffer and death takes us all.
Death is like a fake doll
looking for pain.

I looked in the mirror and saw
time in a glass frame.
I am drifting away 
and those gray hairs are fading fast.
All of Dad's lost days and his new bitter years to come.
Half of a glass to go and his age will leave me alone.

So I asked God tonight let me sleep again don't take my life.
I like seeing the sunset
and morning.
I am sure things are pretty up there but I have loved ones to soothe me here.


I want to live!
Free as a bird.
Pretty as the world.
Flying through this place we call earth from the first day of my birth.

New wings for me, torn.
Not another lost wing gone.
All around me aged thorns.
Years ahead and I love this life
let me live please.

LOVE ME PAST THE PAIN

Lord I come to you in prayer at this moment
You already know what I need but you need me to ask anyway
So I come to you, I come to you as your willing and humble servant
I'm here to ask you God. Please love me, love me past the pain

The pain of the childhood abuse that I just can't seem to let go of 
God please give me the strength to let go and be free
Please soften my heart for the mother who let it happen
Love me past this pain so I can be the man Your Word said I'm supposed to be

For any sin I committed, knowingly or unknowingly, I ask you to forgive me 
Forgive me as I ask for help in forgiving those who have sinned against me
Please lift this weight off my heart, O Father God
That will allow me to the Christian man you have called me to be 

Father I need help to get rid of this hatred within my soul 
For Your Word says to strip off every weight that hinders us 
And I realize that I can't do it without you Father 
For you are truly the only one that can make me whole

Sometimes I feel that life is too much for me too bear
And I feel as though I'm outta my mind and going insane
But you Father God are always there to let me know that you and you alone 
Are the only one that can love me past the pain

Father help me to let go of a childhood lost forever
Help me forget those cries for help that went out in vain
You are the one that can look into my eyes and see the windows to my soul
And I see through teary eyes that only you can love me past the pain

Help me let go of the anger I have for those who turned their backs on me 
For I now know that they couldn't help me because they are not you 
Please God, help me to be the person you have anointed me to be 
I come to you for guidance when I don't know what to do

Your Word says that you will never leave nor forsake me 
And that all I have to do is bring my cares and worries to you
So I bring them to you now, help me Father, with this burden
You're the one I come to when I don't know what to do 

I thank you Father for listening to my cries
For I know when I pray it's never in vain
I usually don't take the time to thank you
But now I say thank you Father, thank you for loving me past the pain

Talent

In your word immersed
from prayer I've arose.
In meditation unrehearsed
to write my daily prose.

My fountain dry and soul driven
I pray my fear you'll allay.
That this ability you've given
is gone just for today.

Without considering the cost 
I once foolishly laid this aside.
For many years it was lost
this talent seemed to hide.

Never shall I seek credit
beyond that you will approve.
That my talent you'll edit
but please Lord, don't remove.

Cold Spirit

Faithless dreams in this game
The one I want to witness my pain
Closer now, I won’t her let go
Her arms around the ghost in the snow

Silence for this angel of fear
Patience for the hate in her tears
And now a word, such comfort from me 
That she is mine and I’ll set her free

Haunting all that she needs
Reminding her that everything bleeds
The rotting cores: reflections of self
The frozen lake is all she has left

Faithless dreams in this game
The ones we need to witness this pain
Closer still, I need her to know
That if I leave she will turn to stone

This ghost a prayer for someone to see
The snow is cold, and it’s all I can be
And now a word from denial’s regret
Just wrap up warm before we connect

Please Spare Me Lord

In this life of hardships and trials,
I need your hand to  walk these last few miles.
Many heartbreaks and misfortune I've endured in my time,
A few I thought being my breaking line.
Lord please spare me this time,
For you know this burden is big,
It grows each day with new rising fears.
Tho sprits are low and the eagerness is gone,
Friends will flock together in search for a place in which to belong.
With each having goods to sell,
And the price being a song,
They will thrash over the hardtimes of which this world has become.
With no one knowing the right thing to do,
Each longs for an answer, maybe from the sky of blue.
A few will turn to You for guidance,
And even whisper a prayer or two.
For we all know our world has became wicked, 
And this was not the right thing to do.
Lord spare me this time,
For you know this burden is big,
It grows each day with new rising fears.
When all capitol has vanished,
And man has forgotten their smiles,
We may all join hands, 
And travel with you our last few miles.
For you see Lord I know You, and You alone,
Can spare me and let this burden not look so big,
You are the power I need to face this world and it's fears.

THE SOFT RAIN MOVES THE FEELING

Look in that direction,
where a lovely rainbow
stretches over the bright horizon; 
and still the soft  rainmoves the feeling
of  that heart whose  kindness
is motivated by belief...
And still the soft rain 
moves the feeling
of everyone who has looked 
for those easy answers
little convincing in themselves!

Look at only one creation, and again...
isn't it  far beyond every emotion
that the amazed  eyes feel?
Thank your Creator, and always show
gratitude for the life you live
and the blessings you already have!...
And still the soft rain
 moves the feeling
that we have for Him,who's so alive....
who's too real!

Look at the splendid Heaven...
praise your Father, who never
rejects a prayer or refuses to care;
and whenever our worries 
become a burden of fears:
search for Him, you'll find Him there!,

Inside I cried

This pain, for so many years,
Left me in a state impossible to shed tears.
Inside, I cried.
Within, were strings in my heart, tightly they were tied.

You could throw me, you could beat me,
You could whip me in a circle of your greed,
I could sit, wait and bleed.
My deterioration was your elation.
It's this wretched place,
It's got me crazed one way and you in many others,
For you, your heart fluttered.
For me, my mind went to the gutter.
If I could be blessed by your death,
You'd get my blessings by my last breath.
But on this day of gloom
Inside the black roses always bloom.

You love it when I abide to what you wanted,
If I resigned like a dog I'd be hunted.
Although alone I was always treated like a dog
and alone I licked my wounds
in the distance you laughed like a fool
but I could care less
nail me to the wall with you and your tools
I'd enjoy that foolish look on your face
Hell, I'd look you in the eyes and you'd question me being out of place

You could throw me, you could beat me,
You could whip me in a circle of your greed,
I could sit, wait and bleed.
My deterioration was your elation.
As these days pass soon I will disappear without a trace
And all I could hope for is never again see your face.

All I ask if my prayer is granted
that seeing your heart stop is surely a great deal of magnificence
Let alone the thought of your absence
I'd be glad to bless my own prayer one way or another
When I strike you you'd utter a small word
a yell of plea
but let's be glad in the end we'll both be set free.

Should I Die Tonite (from Scenes from Above)

If I should die tonite
Let these demons and angels rejoice in delight
If I should bow my head & rest tonight
If it's not polite
Let my enemies shrudley kiss me goodnite
Rehearse a small prayer if I should die tonight
My standard of living is a factor of giving
The things I've sworn off the tip of my tongue
The fabrics I've worn so soft
From the tips of my thumb
Death ain't nothing but time & distance
In a fine line royalty may kiss and dance
Glorify the blood in my eyes 
Ain't nothing but violence and silent cries
Let the God judge as I pilot my lies
My residents evil, just escaped my casket
Task it, a second chance to outlast it 
I'm putting together a masterpiece
Something more precious than souls deceased
My anger and compasssion
My satisfaction, with being buried in fashion
Just to live life and die twice
The very passion of christ!!

Life Insurance

The countdown has begun 
Tomorrow night at the setting of the sun 
The government has me being punished for something I didn't do 
I pray the same thing doesn't happen to you 
I've insisted you have the wrong man 
I have life insurance money of 200 grand 
I told her to divorce me and move on 
I will be six feet under in two more dawns 
I requested lethal injection, but they are giving me the chair 
I have always had trouble, but this is my worst to compare 
Tomorrow at this time they will announce dead man walking 
Between the governor and my lawyer, I hope there is some talking 
During a time like this, I wonder where is our maker 
I must be prepared to see the undertaker 
I have requested my last meal 
Some chops and ribs fresh from a grill 
Now I must say good bye, it's my time to go 
The preacher tells me may the Lord have mercy on your soul 
I have always had a fear for the unknown 
As the minutes pass by, it has grown 
I will now say my final prayer 
At the pearl gates, hopefully my soul will arrive there 
As my wife enjoys the insurance money 
Life sometimes isn't so funny

My Last Match

Before God,
I stood in total awe that day.
Thoughts racing, searching my broken heart,
for proper things to say.

Words, that to God,
might relay what I was feeling.
While unaware that He could see,
beyond my outer peeling.

No more facade or words to parse,
but speaking from the heart.
Knowing not where it would lead me,
only that I had to start.

Sin, like cataracts, had scaled my eyes;
rendered blind, I could not see.
I had given no space to Jesus,
or had thoughts of Calvary.

With the last match in my book,
God, had set my fields aflame.
Forthwith bringing me to a place in life,
where in a different manner I'd use His name.

Now, with each day's birth,
in prayer I look to him.
Praising Him for goodness and mercy,
and my cup filled to the brim.

The Sufferer

An ocean supporting my death
A world unseen is stealing my breath
Command my end with all that you have
I still rise in the land of the sad

Hidden noise in solemnity’s wake
The silent prayer that darkness partakes
Behind your eyes the scene will appear
And all your words are riddled with fear

Sleepless dreams deterring the truth
Drop the sword, deny you are you
Illusion’s stain gripping your shield
And finally, your sleep is concealed

The strongest casting their stones
The quickest stealing unknown
A lonely means to glorious ends
Where nothing’s learned, and darkness commends

And deeper my sight has me drown
And in the light the darkness is found
Killing me all over again
Until I rise and walk with the pain

Sinner's Prayer

O come let's pray the prayer of faith,
as every sinner must.
Let's wholly give our lives to Christ,
and in Him place our trust.

The Lord will never let you down,
I'm sure that you will find.
And each time that you call on Him,
He'll give you peace of mind.

Forgive the sins that I have done,
in this life until now.
I believe that you can do it, Lord,
although I don't see how.

You see, I've been so wicked, Lord,
there's not much good in me.
But my desire from this day forth,
is to live, dear Lord, for thee.

On Bended Knees

Though my transgressions are many,
though my virtues are few,
though at times I’d forgotten You,
You did not give up on me.

On bended knees to You I pray,
on bended knees your name I say,
bless this soul that come to Thee,
teach me, Lord, your way.

In this life of pain and sorrow,
hope is so hard to find.
I know You’re there watching over me,
shaping my life night and day.

You have been so kind to me, Lord,
You’ve been a friend all along,
many a time I had doubted You,
now at last I see the light.

Let me give back what I have taken,
let me atone for my sins,
hear this prayer that I pray to Thee,
I’ll praise your name till the end.

Crucified

Each time I look toward heaven
and see a falling star.
I say a simple prayer to God.
for keeping me thus far.

Through closed eyes I visualize
Jesus, hanging on sins tree.
Bearing the sin of the world
dying for you and me.

They nailed His hands and pierced His side
such a terrible sight I see.
At that moment His blood was shed
one drop fell on me.

Jesus had such love within Him
A love, genuine and true.
In death saying, "Father forgive them;
for they know not what they do."

Through a falling star I'm allowed to see
that life is much the same as then.
If willfully we disobey His will
we crucify Him again.

Pleasing God

Man, I shall no longer try to please
though in my past I've tried.
I focus now on pleasing God,
so with my life He'll be satisfied.

I know that iI have often failed
in little things He'd have me say and do. 
But through my prayer and His abundant grace
He sustains and sees me through.

One goal in life I've vowed to have
to have a likeness to that of God.
And live my life so that I might dwell with Him
when in this sinful world I no longer trod.

Trust the Lord

Have you pleaded for an answer to a prayer dear to your heart -
Have you felt the Lord's allowed your world to be all torn apart?
Have you wondered why the ones you love must be in such poor health,
Or why, of all the folks on earth, you are not blessed with wealth?

Have you fervently beseeched, but the Lord just answered "No?"
Or He may have said "Not now," but there's no way you can know.
Faithfully, "Thy will be done" must our prayer ever be,
If the greater gift or blessing planned for us we hope to see.

Oh, the Lord can see tomorrow and He knows how things will end,
And He can turn the bad to good in anything, my friend.
If you will trust Him wholly and not try to take the lead,
The Lord will bless you richly with all things that you may need.

Trust the Lord - He has the answer.
Trust the Lord - His word is true.
He can make joy out of sorrow.
Trust the Lord - He cares for you.

Homeless

I've sat and I've pondered how fairness could be Some people convinced it's so 
simple to see
But obviously their not the ones who've been told To vacate their houses and go 
sleep in the cold
You who are out on black coat and tie dates While others eat garbarge with dirty 
hands and no plates
Those with bellies tight as balloons full of air Others with sunk in chest filled with 
pain,grief,and,despair
Doctors appointments blew off because they just can't be made While others 
can't see them there's no money to pay
You might ride in a limo and have someone else drive While others pray each 
day just to stay alive
These are people you see just like you and I Can't live the dream though they've 
tried and they've tried
We need to think and decide how lucky we are We can have warmth as we drive 
home in a nice cozy car
So we need to remember before we crawl snug into bed......To 
Say A Prayer For The HOMELESS That They Don't End Up DEAD!!!
