Your Time To Shine

What will you do when it’s your time to shine?
Do you have all your words written down in your mind?
Have you planned for the day when they call on your name?
To lift up a soul and help hide someone’s shame?

Is it easy for you to just stand up and speak?
Anytime, anywhere – any day of the week?
What about when you’re asked to give your point of view
On the many events that take place in the news?

If you’re asked to speak on the ‘good news’ of Christ
To those who yet walk in the world, full of vice.
Do you have rhyming words or a sweet song to sing?
As you share with others our Resurrected King?

These questions I ask are to keep us in mind
Of the Great Commission given to all mankind!
That our King will return with Victory in His hand,
And all men will bow with their knees in the sand

Giving glory to God – Who has truly loved us all
Even though our disobedience caused us to fall.
Yet He gave all He had even Everlasting Life.
He forgave us our sins – He took away our strife.

His command said “go forth in the world, filled with love
And be as wise as serpents – but gentle as doves”.
So what will you do when it’s your time to shine?
When God opens up Heaven and says “This child is Mine?”

A man i'll never be

Growing up 
My father and me
He did the best he could
Because once we were three
 
Events happened
And then we were two
His rise and demise
As his life withdrew
 
Looking back, to the memories we had
They never lasted for years
Some great, some sad
For an ill man he did his best
And in me, I have his zest
 
He never recovered from the loss of his son
To say goodbye to the elder one
He was hospitalised for months and years
On the day he was taken, uncontrollable tears

The years we shared 
Fifteen in all
In every one
He helped me grow tall
To appreciate, what life will give
Remember your past, let your future live

He's all around me every day
For on the wind I hear him say
Enjoy your life, live happily
I hope you get to the land of the free

My reply to you Dad
As you look down on me
The Aura around you
The man I hope to be


" Happy Fathers Day to you Dad, I still miss you, your loving son James "
         To be read listening to Boston's < A Man i'll never be >

My teardrop

When you see a raindrop fall
It is my teardrop after all
When you see a star that would shine
Remember that the teardrop was mine
When you feel the warmth of the sun
Know that it's my heart that you had won
When you see a raindrop fall
It is my teardrop after all
When you see the sky of blue
Put in your notes that I love you
When you feel so alone
I am just on the other side of the phone
When you see a raindrop fall
It is my teardrop after all
When you shall cry
Remember my love for you will fly
When you see a rainbow
In the sky is where my teardrop will flow
When you see a white dove
Just think about the teardrop that falls down from up above  
When you are feeling blue
Remember that my teardrop is for you
When you see a teardrop fall
It is my teardrop after all.

The Soldiers Lullaby

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~For Jenn with love

Why When We Sleep Do We Close Out the Dark?

Why when we sleep do we close out the darkness,
Which comes creeping and crawling within?
Still it finds it's way into our conscious,
Which fades as the daylight grows dim.

We close ourselves off from the nighttime,
Behind curtains, blinds, shutters and screens,
As we try to forget the day's time-line,
And surrender ourselves to our dreams.

Surely nighttime is perfect for sleeping,
When it's dark outside and in our heads,
As slowly that dream-state comes creeping,
While we're tucked up at home in our beds.

It should be the daytime we close out,
We can't sleep while we're facing the light,
Since surely the sun leaves a dream-drought,
So the best time to sleep is at night.

So for all who rise late in the daytime,
And for those who will rise with the lark,
The question I leave you in this rhyme;
Why when we sleep do we close out the dark?

Emptyness

A place still lies
Lonely and untouched
Every night it cries
Seeking for its walls to be patched

A place still lies
But dead in its self
With broken memories
And an empty shelf

I struggle to find myself
In the midst of all the strife
But above me a cloud of darkness
So thick, full of sadness

The place will still lie
But not utter a cry
It shall continue to die
Because no one asked why

Forever in My Heart (Aarons Song)

Sometimes I look around me
and I see an empty space
where you might be playing
a sweet smile on your face.
You might be calling out to me
asking me to play
and I would be there with you
and you would fill my day.

When bedtime comes I'd read to you
then before I tuck you in
I would open up my arms
and you would climb right in.
I would kiss your baby cheek
and tell you "you're my love".
I would hold you close to me
and thank the Lord above...

But then I look around again
and there's just an empty space.
No toys scattered on the floor
no shinning little face.
I'll never hear you call my name
or watch you as you grow
but you will always be with me
no matter where I go.

And I know there is a heaven
and I know that you are there
and you have a better life
than I could give you here.
Until I take my final breath
I will always pray
that through God's most precious gift
I'll be with you some day.

Then, I will take you in my arms
and hold you close to me.
Your laughter will ring in my ears
your smiling face, I'll see.
We will be together
my precious baby boy
and then the only tears I'll cry
will be ones of joy.

I hope that you can hear me
I have so much to say
and I never had the chance
since you left me that day.
For now I want to tell you
that I love you so
and I am so sorry
that you had to go.

If you could have stayed with me
my dream would have come true
and I know I would have done
anything for you.
And even though you went away
and we must be apart
I know you will always live
forever in my heart.

Son

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

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

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

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

DaddyTold Me Song on CD

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

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

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

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

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

If You Only Knew

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

Prodical Son

Like a tide in the storm
taking sand from the shore,
tossed and turned to return to the shore twice as strong as before,
So does the prodical son as he knocks on his fathers door...

Bruised and battered his title didnt matter-
His ways brought shame on his family name.
He used and abused- spent up all his fathers money
no friends since its gone-his fun is no more.
Reality begins to set in when he eats with the pigs-
Its kind of ironic when all he had to do is just repent.
So finally he acknowleges the damage he's done and goes back to his father-
who killed the fattest calf for his son...

Like a tide in the storm
taking sand from the shore,
tossed and turned to return to the shore twice as strong as before,
So does the prodical son as he knocks on his fathers door...

Dont you remember when you walked in his shoes?
Dont act like you aint walked in them too-we all have missued.
But like the prodical son we where saved from our pasts, when we got down on 
our knees and asked God for a second chance.
I pray you recieve this lesson, the father wants you to come on home, but many 
reject him.
Were all prodical sons, even you gangstas and thugs- the father wants you to 
come back home- this world is no home, Repent while you can...This is our 
second chance. 
Everyday we get tossed and turned by the enemy-But if you have God's word it 
will set you free.
You was down on your luck before- now your headed for glory-twice as strong as 
before...Take some time out today to call on the Lord!!!

Like a tide in the storm
taking sand from the shore,
tossed and turned to return to the shore twice as strong as before,
So does the prodical son as he knocks on his fathers door...

One Love, A Tribute to Bob Marley

“One love…one heart, let’s get together and feel alright…
As it was in the beginning (one love), so shall it be in the end (one heart); give thanks and 
praise to the Lord, and I will feel alright…” Bob Marley, Prophet.


I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.

We are, but before we can be, we must realize,
that the only way TO be, is I and I – the trinity;
the I and I makes the one that was, is, and ever
shall be – 
the one yearning to be set free 
unto its brothers and sisters to its beginnings 
and endings, 
and on and on and on, and led into infinity
by its singers.

It is the one that does not seek, 
and can only be found; rediscovered 
like the greatest treasure the earth ever buried, 
and the heavens ever knew –
                                the reason for all things…

So dance as one voice; sing as two feet 
pounding
the earth with your glory; 
free the one rhythm that has been vibrating between toes 
for all of time –
dance beneath and above all things,
and sing the songs of freedom!

Rise up, rise up, rise up and dance!
Free the chains from your bound feet,
And feel the weight released –
A trinity of I and I;
One love, one heart, let’s get together
And feel alright…

I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.




*Inspired by Michele's Music to your Pen, contest and my brother in vision, the man himself, 
Mr. Bob Marley who as soon as I put him on, I'm smiling and filled with great light. :)

From ONE LOVE, by: Bob Marley

I only see you in Pictures

Run out in Steptember 
and here is December
But I'm still your defender
To guard and protect you forever for sure
but for now

I only see you in pictures
It kills me to look at your pictures
You keep me alive, you in pictures
Do they let you see me in pictures
I ache to hold you not just your pictures
Soon together we'll take new beautiful pictures

On the day of your birth
You brought to me mirth
I promised heav'n and earth
To stay and protect you forever for sure
I'm with you but for now

I only see you in pictures
It kills me to look at your pictures
You keep me alive, you in pictures
Do they let you see me in pictures
I ache to hold you not just your pictures
Soon together we'll take beautiful pictures

Mother and son

I cherish you,
If you cherish me.

You brought me to life,
We began to meet through time,
Even though,
Sometimes you don't comprehend me,
Sometimes you don't understand me,
That sometimes time isn't enough,
That sometimes instincts get uncontrolled...,
But still,
You were designated for my life,
And you profile my living...
We share lives...

Although,
Time brings maturity,
And time doesn't last forever,
As well as we don't last forever...

There is no such thing,
As total perfection,
Even though,
Thank you...

Nashville, A Dog Gone Hit,

I left my hometown and didn't much look back,
headed southward bound in my Cowboy Cadillac,
arrived at this store to grab me some snacks,
Yea, they're right about this town, of how it really attracks,

Yea, here in the town called Nashville, where the Grand Ole Opry's on TV,
They say it's the real deal, where upcoming singers need to be,
but I don't do much singing, 'cause the hound dogs howl at me,
though I sure hope it's worth bringing, my songs, for some to see,

I've got them on the internet, downloading them is free,
I haven't had any right connections yet, but I'm hoping patiently,
gonna find me country singer, try to pitch them a dog gone hit, 
like pitching a horseshoe ringer, you know you just can't quit,

Yea, here in the town of Nashville, where the Grand Ole Opry's on TV,
they say it's the real deal, where even writers need to be,
no, I don't do much singing, 'cause the hound dogs howl at me,
but I sure hope it's well worth bringing, my songs, for some to see,

Yea, here in the town of Nashville, where the Grand Ole Opry's on TV,
they say it's the real deal, where upcoming singers hope patiently,
Got some songs to pitch the singers, like me, they just can't quit,
like making a horseshoe ringer, knowing one of them could hit,

I've got them at Poetry Soup, where printing them is free,
log on in, enjoy the view, it's finger friendly as can be,
become a welcomed member, without any sort of fee,
no matter what's your gender, or your nationality,

Yea, here in the town of Nashville, where the Grand Ole Opry's on TV,
they say it's the real deal, where upcoming singers need to be,
Gonna find me a country singer, try to pitch them a dog gone hit,
like throwing a horseshoe ringer, knowing you just can't quit,

Yea, I left my hometown and didn't much look back,
headed southward bound in my Cowboy Cadillac,
arrived at this store to grab me some snacks,
Yea, they're right about this town, of how it really attracks.

She's Nobodys Fool On CD

She's a charming love attraction,
Always dresses fit to thrill,
When she's looking for some action,
She's looking for a heart to steal,

And her charming eyes can mesmerize,
The heart of any man,
While her warming smiles can magnetize,
Them right into her hand,

And she's nobodys fool,
She's sexy sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like a fool

And she gets some satisfaction,
When they say her love is cruel,
And her only shown reaction is,
"I'm nobodys fool!"

She can easily charm the devil,
From the heart of any man,
And her way is having several,
Caught up in her hand,

And she's nobodys fool,
She's sexy, sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like a fool,

And her charming eyes can mesmerize,
The heart of any man,
While her warming smiles can magnetize,
Them right into her hand,

She"s a charming love attraction,
Beaming with sex appeal,
When she"s looking for some action,
She's just looking for the thrill,

And she's nobodys fool,
So sexy, sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like a fool,

She's a charming love attraction,
So sexy, sweet and cool,
And she gets some satisfaction,
Being nobodys fool,

And she's nobodys fool,
She's sexy sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like an fool,

Christmas Eve

Sing to the melody... “La Cucaracha"


The little children/ the little children/ setting sugar cookies and warm milk....../
Hoping to see him/ hoping to see him/ in his red and white silk!

The little children/ the little children/ anticipate the leading red light........../
Hoping to see him/ hoping to see him/ sliding down the chimney tonight!

The little children/ the little children/ falling asleep on the couch....../
They didn't see him/ they didn't see him/ setting presents in a crouch!

To The Top

I'm going to make it to the top,
Where all my goals and dreams are bound,
I've got to make it to the top,
I don't have time to fool around,

I've been so down and low before,
In lifes real ups and downs,
Now I know life shares more,
Where all my goals and dreams are bound,

I thought I'd take a chance with you,
And you'd share these dreams with me,
Though, youre goals and dreams seem few,
So, I'm going to leave you be,

You have your own life ahead,
And I feel you don't need me,
What I've seen instead,
Is you're needing to be free,

I may miss your soft warm touch,
And all your gentle grace,
Though more than much,
I'll miss your smiling face,

I'm going to make it to the top,
Where all my goals and dreams are bound,
My hopes and endeavors shall never stop,
Until I'm touching solid ground.

Legacy

          Contemptuous 
While leaving village for thirty years

Accompanying my son to New York

Found a bawling child in a street

Bare feet, dirty addressed,  threatening look 

We could not compromise on his

Soul was hanged on sharp hook

Took him and played arbitrary role

Result gave me piercing shock

Finally was charged with blame

Of opening his confidence- lock

Had to leave him seeping tears

I received my son thankful cry 

How wonderful life under shady oak

Returning village, found child place

His shrieking father had took

I wished him a kindful son 

He yelped rudely, don’t poke

Don’t favor them but the best way

Is setting them in oxen yoke

We exchanged our lovely glances

Our love made us happy look.
zaeem yousaf

Father to son (A monologue)

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

The Things You Wish You Could Erase

Sitting on the edge of the bridge
Holding unto that bottle of beer
The same beer that he drank 
The night he killed those people
Flashback in his brain
Gripping unto the bottle
nearly breaking it
hes sitting behind the wheel
Picks up the beer bottle 
Takes another sip
He sees the car
But gently closes his eyes
The women slams on her breaks
Her son in the back seat
The cars crash
Her car rolls down the hill
His car slamming into 
The side of bridge gates
The gates holding him steady
He gently steps out of his car
Seeing the smoke 
A gray car laying in the river
Below the bridge hes standing on
He runs down there 
Running through the water
the top of the car barely noticable
He helps the young women out
Not knowing about the little boy
In the back seat
She yells
"my son... my son"
She points to the vehicle
She takes her last breathe
Lays there helplessly
The man drags the little boy out of the car
A scratch on his forhead
Not breathing at all
The man cries
Trying to wake the kid up
Knowing they are both up in heaven
He vanishes
Several years later
He sits on the bridge
Holding the bottle
Has a child of his own
A wife of his own
Waiting at home for him
His son an hour before 
Wanted to walk to the bridge
With him
But the man just said no
The young boy just stayed home
His father never came back
They found him 
Floating in the same river
The women and her son were in

One For Excuses Song on CD

Darling, I didn't aim to let you down, or to leave you lonely,
I also have a frown, baby you're not the only,
I meant to hurry home, and didn't mean to take so long,
I didn't realize time had flown, please forgive me if I wrong,                           
          

Honey, I'm not one for excuses,
But I'm so sorry with regret,
And my heart sure feels so useless,
For what you're not over yet,

I did say I'd be right back, I even called you on the phone,
And my heart didn't cut me any slack, when I heard the busy tone,
Please accept my apology, honey, I haven't lied,
And if you still won't talk to me...well, at least I know I've tried,

And I'm not one for excuses,
But I'm so sorry with regret,
And my heart sure feels so useless,
For what you're not over yet,

Darling, I didn't aim to let you down, or to leave you lonely,
I also have a frown, baby you're not the only,
I meant to hurry home, and didn't mean to take so long,
I didn't realize time had flown, please forgive me if I'm wrong,

No, I'm not one for excuses,
but I'm so sorry with regret,
And my heart sure feels so useless,
For what you're not over yet,
Yes, my heart sure feels so useless,
For what you're not over yet.

Framed by Love

You asked me to make sure your husband didn’t drink that December day as I pushed your chair through glass-encased gardens. A friend in need you had always been, I could deny you nothing, but Paul lost it and left town when you died. Living just long enough to see your first grandchild born, it was a three-year battle before cancer put you in that wheelchair. Look at how lovingly Paul holds your hand here, standing by Chris whose smile lit our lives. Chris and I gave the eulogy together as you asked, but you knew that since Chris is with you now. Only weeks after your death did we learn of Chris’s cancer. Tell him I miss our travels as I embrace this photo with my heart’s frame of eternal love.
*For Sidney Lee Ann’s “Picture Frame” contest Dedicated to Jeanett, who saw her grandson born on Christmas before dying in January 2003. Our friend Chris died Christmas Day 2005. The photo makes me think how different life was when we spent all our free time together.

The Gift of Sound

The Gift of Sound.

In our little house stands an upright piano
Tuned by a blind man blessed by the gift of sound. 

My son sat one day playing a masterpiece 
Wrote long ago by a man who couldn’t hear.

Listening to the music it took my mind away to
Afar magical places no luggage and no cases.
  
My mind kept jumping between different scenes
Fields of colored flowers the loveliest it can be.

Shadows of far mountains colors in different hues
A pied piper sat under a tree playing his favorite tune.

Sheep gathered together chased by a cleverly dog
Taught by nature no cane and no flog.

Oh… the gift of sound.

NEED AN UMBRELLA

Dancing in the rain, drops on my face;
Not in a rush, I love this place.
Need an umbrella? I say not today
The kid inside, just wants to play

Jump in the puddles, really big splash
Childhood wonder, all day bash
Laugh out loud, as it's pouring down
I'm young again, on a merry-go-round

Soaking wet clothes, I'm such a mess
I really don't care, I must confess
Skipped work this morning, to be right here
As soon as I heard, skies wouldn't be clear

We grow up too fast, and we lose our awe
For the miracles in nature, Heaven's spa
I let my son skip school, he's making "A's"
To celebrate youth, make memorable days

So I'll pass on the umbrella, see my boy smile
Won't worry about work, or focus on style
Yeah.. just for today, I'll be a kid again
My son will never forget, what a day it's been!

Last Night In Bed


In bed, I confessed the most 
agonizing pain ever hidden 
I kept it for so many years

whirling through my head
and guised as laughter 
for all to see, but I couldn’t beam 
with pride at having not 

outperformed my weakness
You were not asleep 
and I found a chance to spill it out 
from my chest to yours 

that I could put it to rest
Soon, silence fell against our will, 
but I did understand a thing
The pain has been released, 

shared for the very first time
Ah, I never remembered how 
tearful I was last night 
and who cares? I don't, ‘cause... 

you were accenting, 
warm and a good listener 
rightly suits a troubled son

Where I'll Be

We drank tea, or was it hot chocolate?
You brushed the hair out of my eyes.
You whispered: "friends, like us, we've got it good."
That night we met, my mouth said, “Nice to meet you.”
my heart said, “Oh, I’ve found you.”

We drove for less than an hour
To a spot you claimed as your own.
There we sat by the edge
Encased by the light from the moon,
if you were to ask me what was on my mind
my response would be “only of you”.

No words needed to be spoken
The beating of my heart was all I heard
something so strong shouldn't make me this weak,
my gaze casts out over the water
before I settle on your face,
I've never seen the color beautiful
until I looked into your eyes.

If everything were to change
everything would fade,
still I would not break the bond we've made.
If you find yourself lost, confused
Not sure of which path to choose,
Look down to your chest, a little to the left
That’s where I’ll always be.

Innocents watched by Mother Nature
Electricity ran through my veins
Egged on trees around us, the wind carrying our ways.
I screamed it in my head, because I wouldn’t to your face
When I looked into your eyes you dared to stare right back
I should have whispered, "Hi, I'm your other half."

Fall turned into winter when the ground began to freeze
Racing down the slopes, our bodies felt the breeze.
My face was flushed from the drinks
little did you know
Thoughts of you made me blush,
But I couldn’t let it show

a dirty mind quickly turned pure
as your shoulder warped into a pillow
one hand on the steering wheel
the other around my back.
my eyes slowly close I let myself go
Listening to Colbie sung softly in my ear
Congratulations you broke me down
Taking away my fears.

If everything were to change
everything would fade,
still I would not break the bond we've made.
If you find yourself lost, confused
Not sure of which path to choose,
Look down to your chest, a little to the left
That’s where I’ll always be.

My heart is your piñata
A few blows it has received,
Better yet its pin the tail on the donkey
Where I placed my heart on your sleeve.
As time wore on
The muscle slowly faded
Leaving just a mark,
But all these moments
Make up a story
ours is simply at the start.

When you find yourself lost, confused
Not sure of which path to choose,
Look down to your chest, a little to the left
You will always find me.

To My Black Pearl

In a world filled with lost black girls
I found my cultured pearl
highly respectable
and very intellectual

with beauty that extends beyond the skin
to me she is far beyond a 10
in life the best blessing

I have ever encountered 
through the Lord I found her

angel with no wings
that plays my heart strings
and gets me so excited
until finally I had to write it
this is my heart where you are cordially invited

to stake your claim
plant your flag,write your name
for eternity you will course through my veins

your the ying to my yang
the name my heart sang
everything is you are my everything

I love you is a understatement none can take your place
your my oxygen without you I would suffocate

We moved so rapidly
became a family
you bought out the man in me
even had my little man for me

love of my life completely free from drama
worthy of being my wife, I did it right not just a babies mama
so I will honor
you forever shatada

I Can't SEE ME WITHOUT YOU

To my wife Shatada who loved me unconditionally. SEPT 4 2008 MAKES 9 YEARS.

Mirrorred Refrain-GOD GAVE US LOVE FREELY

Smell the spring aroma and 
let it delight all your senses...
don't the softest roses bloom
on windless, sunniest days?


Let my slow fingers caress your lustrous hair,
feel the pleasant warmth of a lovely afternoon;
on windless, sunniest days...
don't the softest roses bloom?


Only the truest lovers can set the white moon ablaze,
as the passing stars shed more light on their faces;
don't the softest roses bloom
on windless, sunniest days?


God gave us love freely as the air we breath;
humans have turned it into lust and doom...
on windless, sunniest days
don't the softest roses bloom?

Wisdom of Heights---Climb with Me

This morning
bells toll
a trumpet sounds
but refuses to blare
it just doesn't know 
how to harm
what it takes
to infect the living 

trees
earth
and sound
survive sadness
out last the past
bond brothers and sisters
of sky
air 
mud 
and water
as it loses 
to a force

some days...

this morning
it wins
because the vibration knows god
and is ONE

and though human imperfections
sit in the shadows of it's path
perfections will
and forever will
prevail

people
so arrogant 
we choose to destroy 
but how can we concentrate 
on methods of malcontent
when god sits at our breakfast table?
urging
as father urges child
"get up!"
"move on!"
"stand on two feet!"
"breath child!"

he tolls the bell
as we lay on deaf ears
he loosens ties with anger 
as the path warns and wears
thrusting
driving this cosmic ship 
of no loses
only tiny
arrogant setbacks

and he smiles
for he knows
what we yet
have to find...
and all is well.

The Apple PASTURE

DONE



                             The Apple PASTURE

Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture.
Were once was and all well meet.
A pure and dear site.
Where silver reflection cover the still waters that holds the golden
grains of martilty and the grazing souls lie young amounce no stars.
Oh how I long
To drift into the apple pasture
Were wins smells of melon and the trees whisper spring corals in the mellow dark and best of light and time creeps into no tomorrow.

Tenderheart Bear

His teacher gave an assignment
On his first day of school,
She told the kids to write a book
On things they thought were cool.
She said they could draw pictures
Like in all the books they read,
But she said to be creative
And this is what his said:

"My baby rabbit is one thing that I love,
and my house, that I drew this picture of.
I love my family and a sunny summer day
and red would be the only color if I had my way."
 "I love my teacher, she said I could go far
and I like Skeletor and my cool racecar,
but my best things, just in case you care,
are great big shiny red balloons and Tenderheart Bear."

Fifteen years down the road, 
When he was all grown up
I was cleaning out my closet
And putting things in the truck
I came across a cardboard box 
I opened it to take a look
And there it was with my letters and cards... 
Joeys book.

Carefully I opened it 
And began to take a look
At all the things he'd wrote 
And colored in his special book.
Though he'd been only five years old 
He'd had the sense to know
I'd need something to take me back 
To those precious years with my Joe.

Now my Joey's grown and gone 
With his own family.
He's stationed in the Army 
Far across the sea.
I wish for him all happiness 
And love because it's rare,
But I'll always keep for him 
His book and Tenderheart Bear.

Little Man

I grew up/ being alone
Had no friends/ not one of my own
I asked Momma when's Daddy coming home

She stood there silent/ tears in her eyes
Memories before he left for the sky
I knew my Daddy wasn't gonna come back home

(PreChorus1)
But everynight before I'd go to sleep
I'd pray a little prayer
And everytime I'd hear my Daddy saying,"Son, don't be scared."

Chorus:
You're gonna be alright
Mind your mom, live life on
I'll be just fine
When you close your eyes
Know that I'm loving you
One day will come
When you'll have a son 
Just as wonderful as you
But for now, be proud, cause you're my little man

As years went on / Time flew by
My son grew up/ right before my eyes
He asked me "Daddy, will you always be with me?"

I stood there silent/ tears in my eye
Memories of when he came from the sky
"Son, I'll always be here for you"

(Pre-Chorus2)
I know sometimes he wondered 
I know how much he cared
I always told him as much as I could
Son, don't be scared.

Repeat ChorusX1


Interlude
Just as my Dad told me
As I told my son
I heard my little man 
tell his little one

The Ex-soldier

I happen upon a veteran, once,
An old man
With a four-sprang cane
And war tales
Stretched like China wall.
This event transpired in very recent past.
The man turned out to be pterodactyl
And flew away. 
I fell upon a boy, once,
A once child soldier,
A hero
Released
From youth and life.
Oh, how time has changed.
Men are taught to bicker,
Children are trained to fight.

Sabbath Morning Rap sequence 1

Learn not too late to halt the hate,
Bound to be ground in the dust of disgust
We're pierced and fierce, fulla rings and things
We're blued and tatooed and God is booed.

Crude dudes are misconstrued
with actions vulgar,vile and lewd.
We're found down ground in sound,
totally tatooed in terrible taste,
in a mindless race for the loudest base.

Hate to dis your myth but God exists,
'Tis a truth deduced by the less obtuse,
You understand He did become man
For His love of us all because of the fall.

He suffered and died being crucified,
He pulled His people from the pains of hell
and rose from the dead He's alive and well,
I tell you no lie He's got no rival,
It's right there written in the holy Bible.

He arose to heaven so to send the Spirit
to His brothers and sisters who wished to hear it,
He said I leave you my Love I leave you my all
but you gotta say yes to heed my call.

Don't follow the world that ain't the place,
You want to be with Me when you finish this race,
Orphans you're not  you have been taught,
I will help you find Me if I'm sought.
                  
                       Amen

Different Dream

After a hard day at work I come home
Hear my boy rapping the words to his headphones
Every bleep comes another bleep
As he keeps dancing to the beat
Come upstairs and barge through the door
Say to him, "Boy whatcha listenin' to that for?"
As I rip it out of his ears
Turn around and look in the mirror
Get ya head outta the gutter son
You talk to ya mother with that tongue?
Ought'a lean you down and wash your mouth soap
Teach you a lesson and just barely make you choke

Dad, you don't understand
This is me, this is who I am!

Boy, you freeze it right there
Just so I know we're good and square
I'm your father, sit down when I say so
This is home, this is where the green grass grows
Can't be the one to follow you where you go
Can't take you as is and just tie a little bow
Around it and be happy
You ain't what I expected you'd be
After all this hard work to bring home the bacon
Just to come home to see the fuss you making!?

Imma be big and travel the world,
Be famous and get hooked with any girl
I'm tired of this rice 'n' beans, I wanna taste some of that green!

Stop it child, you making a scene, a mockery of ya ma and me
Do yourself a favor and dream a different dream

 The strings are for those with charm
And fame are for those holding cards
Your inner core will just burst at the seams
They say play it safe
And dream a different dream
Billionaires are cowards in disguise
Their careers built upon money and lies
Your inner core will just burst at the seams
They say play it safe
And dream a different dream

I remember when you was little
Your mind was like some twisted riddle
Rapping the lyrics
To your idols, Snoop Dog and Jay-Z
Acting like you knew what they meant
But boy, you could barely read
Spittin' rhymes don't put a roof over ya head
Or clean the dirty sheets in your bed
All those fancy clothes don't give ya fame
just brings your family to shame
Look at you playing life like it's a game
Joining all those gangs just to bleed
Gettin' high and smokin' weed

Dad, it ain't like that
I'm not some filthy rat
Planting my seed wherever
Imma stay true forever
Build myself upon lyrical tether
Striving to be as authentic as leather
Come on dad, can't we get it together?

Your grandpa was born and raised in the meadows
No Internet, no microwave, just planting corn rows
But right now the grass is as green as it's gonna get
And if you ain't got that through ya head yet
As your pops I'm really quite upset

 Take these words right from my mouth
And give 'em wings to fly south
Or I will run from this house like the ratatouille mouse
Tired of this cheese I want something more
The birds and the bees aren't what I'm looking for
I don't wanna die like everybody else
Just put in a hole and call it a grave
I don't wanna die with nothing to my name
If I'm not looking up I'm going south
You can scream and cuss at me with ya sailor's mouth
I'm still leaving and I'm taking the dangerous route

The strings are for those with charm
And fame are for those holding cards
Your inner core will just burst at the seams
They say play it safe
And dream a different dream
Billionaires are cowards in disguise
Their careers built upon money and lies
Your inner core will just burst at the seams
They say play it safe
And dream a different dream

Here I am, standing in this trailer
In your eyes I'm a failure
For wanting to travel the world like a sailor
From Beverly Hills to New York City
At this point I don't even care if you're with me
I may have augmented my hopes a bit too high
But I was tired of looking through telescopes, that habit can die
But dad look at me now
No longer in a small town
Can't be modest I have to boast
I'm traveling the world from coast to coast
In everybody's head is my riffs
And I wish you were here to see this
Swallow your pride long enough to shed a tear
Remember what you used to say, "Turn around, look in the mirror"...?
I wasn't no golden child and you weren't the perfect dad
But come on now, that's a thing of the past
You can ditch your bacon, eggs and Jimmy Dean
Live in luxury in your fields of green
Come on dad, won't you dream this different dream
with me?



NOTE: Words in italics are from the son's perspective, words in normal font are from the father's perspective, and words in bold is the chorus line.

I'm not sure where the idea came from. I was on a camping trip, heading back home, and all the sudden this whole elaborate story came to me and I started writing it all down on a notepad (back then I didn't have my Kindle Fire).

Revised- Reflections On A Gift Of Watermelon Pickle...

That half grown chrysanthemums/
Stirring up like accuser's.
Life is compared with what two things ?
Which do you think is the richer more revealing comparison ?
Poets use many symbols/
Geese flying south can be a symbol,
Of that of approaching winter/
Heart's symbolize love,
In this brief expanse we call life,
One may want to cry out in a revolt ?
Other's simply take in a breathe of fresh air/
Ponder that many other's that don't even care ?
We all must become united in this great cause !
Not to use this concept loosely/
Yet to humbly ponder a thought,
What do you all think tells a more detailed story ?
The poem or the picture ?
Love can grow out of a billowing cry/
Perhaps a cut nor a mere stye in the eye ?
The seventies had embarked on this journey/
Not to mention that of Timothy Leary ?
This took us to a vast opened door !
To break on through to the other side/
Lest I emplore,
Still we have every bit of reason in which to grasp/
That lattice decor to that shine on the asp,
A sweet juice filled with fine honey nectar/
The future resources,
Allow the creative poet/
To begin to explore the valley of much more !
In gaining the proper word/
Fresh out of the Autumn air !

Werewoman of Brooklyn

When the moon is full
I show a certain inclination
It’s way worse than PMS
A truly hairy situation

My fur’s soft as silk
I get a bit hirsute
Me and others of my ilk
Are in wolfish pursuit

Ahh – Oooooh – Werewoman of Brooklyn
I’m a lady lycanthrope
But I’ll rip out your throat
Ah – Oooooh – Werewoman of Brooklyn
I’ll fulfill your dreams
If you don’t mind a few screams

It’s true I’ll tear you up 
If you dare cross me
An alpha female
Ain’t no one can boss me

Me and my weregirls
Hang out at Brighton Beach
Go moonbathing at midnight 
Attack anyone within reach

Ahh – Ooooooh – Werewomen of Brooklyn
From Flatbush to Cozine
Prospect Heights to Fort Greene
Ahh – Ooooooh – Werewoman of Brooklyn
Yeah, we’re representin’
No intention of repentin’

I have a special someone
My friends say it’ll never work
I should stick to my own kind
And while I know I really oughta
She’s Dracula’s daughter
Her love bites are so fine!

Ahh – Oooooh – Werewoman of Brooklyn
I’m a lady lycanthrope
But I’ll rip out your throat
Ah – Oooooh – Werewoman of Brooklyn
I’ll fulfill your dreams
If you don’t mind a few screams

I Am Just Not Sure Anymore

I am just not sure anymore
If your the one for me
I am just not sure anymore
And I need to be free

I want to find the door that lead me back here
I need to get out before you break my heart dear
I loved you once and held your heart near
I now know I need to fly out of here

I am just not sure anymore
If your love is ture
I am just not sure anymore
That I can trust you

You want to controll me not hold me tight
You need to own me all we do is fight
You loved me only when for you it was right
You don't know how to let in the light

I am just not sure anymore 
Where your heart lies
Iam just not sure anymore
If you even hear my cries

I want to tell you how i feel inside
I need to shine not to hide
I loved it when we started this wild ride
I now know you don't want to be buy my side

I am just not sure anymore
If this is where I belong
Iam just not sure anymore
If your heart is my home

A Gray Christmas

The little boy sits by the christmas tree 
Full of light and color
Trying to figure out what all the colors are
He puts his little hands on the ornaments
Trying to see what they are
Feeling them
He steps back and falls over a present
He feels around the box trying to open it
Only seeing alittle 

Mean while on the phone..

his mom is talking to the doctor

"do you think he will be able to see by christmas?" she says
The doctor replies "theres no guarentees, he is 67 % blind, when we did the test with him, he described the color blue as a dark black, and a yellow as a light gray, your son only sees in black and white and im not sure if we can fix that. but we will do our best"

A breathe escapes from her lips as she turns and looks at her son
The doctor explains "his surgery is set for Dec. 7th. be here around 8 am and we will see what we can do, im trully sorry"
He hangs up.

Back in the living room

The boy stands up and walks over to his mom
"mom, have you seen the christmas lights?" he says

She replies "yes sweety i have."

He hugs her leg and says "are they black and white?"

She answers "no sweety" she points to a light bulb on the tree

"this one is blue" she smiles

He grabs the light bulb and repeats "this one is blue" and giggles

She lays him down in his bed as he quickly falls asleep

She sits down on the chair and thinks
"to me. because my son cannot see the beautiful lights and feel the joys of christmas, everything is gray for me. nothing will fill my empty heart"


There are no smiles, when everything is gray, when you cant see the colors of a bright day

Little Shopper Girl (for Deborah's Contest)

Note: To the tune of "Little Drummer Boy"


Come, they sold me, to Macy’s this year
The perfect gifts await for holiday cheer

I’ll push and shove my way through the crowd
Cuss if I don’t succeed, for crying out loud

Stomp on feet of shoppers with my heels
Clear a path to line's front as everyone reels

Bent o’er in pain they grouse, “Who is this cruel witch?”
And I scream back to them in a very high pitch

To reach fine gifts I create travesty
Then single-handedly grab the last Nativity

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
What have I done to find Thee
Done to find Thee

Sadly, I glimpse back at those I’ve attacked
And hand the manger scene to one farther back

The truest gift we find is not on the shelves
We’ll never find this gift within our lost selves

If we forget to share the holiday joys
With shopping schemes and ill-conceived ploys

Make way for kinder shoppers courteously
To find the greatest gift called humanity

Just leave the shops behind and visit your church
And bow before His grace from the pew as you perch

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
For now I’ve found Thee
Now I’ve found Thee

More Then Just Lines

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

                                 Like amorous birds of pray,
                                 Once ways, and known devoured
                                 Your beauty no more to befound
                                 nor shall the sound of your voice.
                                 Love to dust, love to ashes.
                                 Our love has now gone to a private place.
                                        The grave yard of love.

Anwnn

Coming from the misty lake Lough Leane
Came a beautiful maiden of the name of Niamh
Upon a mare, for she is not from the world of man
A seraphic princess from Anwnn
Upon the shores she claimed around his kin
"I have came for Oisin son of Finn"
"Maiden you come to me so alluringly 
I am he, if we marry for all eternity!"

And so he rode upon her horse to the secrets of Anwnn
For he and she, they'd be happy for all eternity 

Come with me to Anwnn
I am she, your queen Niamh
I have come for you Oisin, son of Finn
Don't leave me or you'll see 
The age of man
The age of man
The age of man

MUTLU SON YOKTUR by Teoman

MUTLU SON YOKTUR by Teoman
Song Lyrics

Çok uzaktan geldiysen,
Otur, soluklan, dedi.
Kurakliktan geçtiysen,
Dikenli yollardan,
Karanliktan,
Gölgeden,
Issizdan
Yüzünü yalayan soguktan,
Dogum,
Aci,
Dogrularim, korkularim.

Sorulunca yaniti
Içimizde olan,
Kanimi donduran, isitan,
Durduran
Bir kalemsen,
Bir bos kagit
Mutlu ask varsa da,
Mutlu son yoktur.

Çocuklugun anilari 
Sirtinda agir örtü,
Üsütendir aslinda
Kis gecelerini
Süre degil anlattigim,
Her seyin sonu

Mutlu ask varsa da, 
Mutlu son yoktur.

ENGLISH Translation:

If you came from very far away
sit, take a breather (rest)
he/she said
if you passed through drought 
through the prickly paths
through the darkness
through the shadows
through desolation 
through the cold licking your face, birth
pain, my trues, my fears
while being asked, (if you are a pencil and blank paper)
whose answer is inside us
which freezes my blood
which warms and stops it 
If you are a pencil
a blank paper
although there is a happy love  
there is no happy ending.

Childhood memories
a heavy cloth covering on your back
which in reality makes them (winter nights) feel cold
the winter nights
it is not a period that I recounted
it is the end of everything
although there is a happy love 
there is no happy ending...

Not Too Late

There's a ghost hiding in the past
there's a boy wishing it has last
all these secrets stop the seting sun
all the love has grown, but never said
and he wishes he could've told her what she meant
he wishes he could've said how he felt

But it's not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

There's an angel looking down
There's a boy without a frown
all this hope brings the rising sun
all thsi love we wish we had sent
he can feel she's in his heart
and will enver let him fall apart

"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

He remembers 
talking o nteh couch feeling safe
he remembers writing a poem and her saying its great
he remembers
how he cried wehn she didn't open her eyes
he remembers
fearing things he can't describe


"cause its not too late
just open your heart
she hears every word you say
her guidance helps lead the way
forever's gone by too fast
but deep in our heart it will last
look into your soul and hear it ring
the beautiful song that she sings

My Hero

My Hero 

You would tuck me in at night before you went to work, like your back didn’t hurt from your day job that you didn’t put first. 

We didn’t have much, but not much was enough because I had my hero’s love. 

Your courage fed me and led me to believe that you where unstoppable. 

When you have a hero that’s a queen like Berlene, your dreams are not impossible. 

Your guidance is like a lot of food that Bertha would make. 

Smelling the food I would ask “Did you bake me a cake?” 

But my hero would prepare all the plates as the elders talked about 
service today. 

Just like James & James I want to remain a king.  

Tally and Mr. Alex will teach you a thousand things.  

I would write it all down, now I have a pile of dreams.  

My hero deserves a cape. 

My hero thinks about the people that they can help today and tomorrow. 

My hero stands tall but would knell to the man who stands spiritually taller. 

You taught me that a person that put’s God first will remain guarded. 

I thank Fathers that strive to teach their kids to pray harder and stay stronger so our problems would one day stay flawless. 

I thank Arthur for being a hero but a man first.  Monk was a monk because every decision he made, he planned first. 

My hero ensured my safety, never told me what I can’t be, and still made me feel like a baby. 

My hero is amazing watch me grow up and be a mirror image.  

I even searched for my hero secret ingredient; I threw up to many times eating too much spinach. 

When I was  finished, my hero told  me to wash the dishes. 

My hero taught me love, unity, knowledge; and we still have a great friendship.  

I see my hero from a clear view and will never put my hero in my rear view. 

Even if I move a thousand miles away, my hero would drive a thousand miles today, to tell me dinner is ready and I need to wash my face.  

My hero is people I watch today.  

If you are influential, motivated, educated, and can add the seasoning to a Sunday dinner you are a hero.  

Either to yourself, your family, or a little boy who was once too short to even look through the peep hole.  

My hero has no ego, just represents strength, courage, and 
wisdom like an eagle.

YOU INSPIRE ME

You, you son…you are my inspiration
When I grow up, my dream is to be as you
It’s funny like that…I try teaching you so much
But constantly find myself learning from you
You taught me unconditional love and adoration
Unconditionally you have loved me with my flaws and then some
Instead of looking down on me, you look up to me
Instead of yelling at me (and you better not ever), you talk to me
Instead of fighting with me, you share with me
Instead of criticizing me, you believe in me
That is why I want to be like you
…you inspire me!

You, you son…you are my inspiration
The one constant of positive energy that fuels my soul
You are the brightest star on the darkest of nights leading me to the gold
You, you are that gold…that treasure…that eternal flame
Igniting an inspirational fuse with every speak of our name
You make me a better role model, a better man and a better dad
You are me son and I am you this is the relationship we have
I promise to be there for you always, no matter the circumstances or needs
You inspire me!
You are that special something that wakes me from the deepest of sleeps
You are my 365 ½ days and every day of my 52 weeks
You inspire me!
You are the wind beneath my wings, so I will glide forever
You are Des Juan, I am Des Juan, we are Des Juan — always together
You inspire me!

Nowhere To Be Found

The son born before the last one Father and mother so joyous For they have another son Black and strong, ebony yet porous The darkness that lasts for a night Lasting for a while, it has eclipsed Blood oozes strength lost during the night Morning comes, cold, confused he cried The only word that comes out is the sister's name Bitter pain, angry, furious, mad, infuriated, upset is the son's family, the incident unexpectedly happens Slowly but surely is the next scene, the consequence is clearly set Eyes used to look at pleasant sights now for tear dropping, in tears i drowned mother, brothers and sisters, nephews and nieces in uncontrollable mourning because the son is now Nowhere To Be Found....

Mak Attack Rap

My name is Mak 
And I'm on the attack
I do a little dance
Then I have a little snack

I'm a boy
And this is my joy
I shake my booty
And I chew on my toy

I love to swing
Mommy helps me sing
Every single day

Serenade

Like the first dawning 
dew drops
Like the fresh scents
of morning
Like cut grasses in
spring time
Like a flower 
in new bloom

Your beauty enfolds me
Engulfs and abounds me
Completely unveils me
Makes my heart cry for more

Like the depths of your
valleys
Like the gushing of 
geisha's     (hot springs)
Like the turn of the
ocean
Trickling streams 
down the mountains
Like the mists upon 
Snowdon
Gently rise 
Gently fall
 
Guess not often
I tell you
Just how much 
you mean to me
That my life 
would be worthless
Without you to adore
 
Yes, I'm saying
I love you
And I hope you
are listening
For it seems like 
a lifetime
To speak out
surface and soar
 
Like the eagle 
flies on wing
Like the clouds
In the Heavens
Like trees
rustle above
My life trembles
with passion
Let me show
my adoration
My courtship and 
fondness 
My sweetest amore

Size Does Matter

Size does matter.
You need to realize that when it comes to size, all your tries will fall and die.
Don't believe the lies that guys surprise you with and fly by you with a lie.
There are sighns that define the line of what matters.
Like, why mine? Is this fine? or when's my time to be fatter?
It's the motion in the ocean if you can't back an engine.
Infact, you couldn't even row to Europe if you were using ten men.
You must know to go to the top of the ship.
Means your ready to rock to the tip and equipted!

My Family and Me

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

My Childs Fight

Through the screams and suffering
My worst fears are foretold
And if the story were not mine
I’d leave it left untold

Why could it not be me?
That fate I could bear
But as it isn’t I’m left to doubt
What my hands cannot repair

Despite this state of helplessness
I feel but the fingertips of despair
In the focus of life’s cruel gaze
I’m awed by courage unaware

From that tiny heart unconquered
I do not falter or lose control
For I see no strength in Death’s hand
That can clutch this unwilling soul

For My Boy: Heads And Tails

For you, my cry.
From you, my boon

Upon this Christmas Day

He sleeps there in a stable
The babe born to the world
Both mother, father watch with care

Though swaddled in a cloth
He is born, yet, to be king
With but just rags for Him to wear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

For within the early morning
Angels brought the sky a voice
Calling forth those who wish to hear

Along then, came all others
Knowing truth within their hearts
That all now have nothing to fear

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

Go forth and tell all others
Who had no chance to hear
The news of hope and of the joy

Let them know the Gift of God
That comes to save us all
His son sent as this little boy

This special morning
The sun now shines bright
From stars there in the Heavens
To the rise of morning light
The world now is much brighter
As angels, too, now play
There’s hope and happiness to share
Upon this Christmas Day

Forever Your Man

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

Damien's Lullabye

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

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

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

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

Bushwhacked ( Mr. President)

this world is threaten to be smitten
by the bastard child of Great Britain
witness the ultimate hypocrite 
banning other countries nuclear armorment
while simultaneously developing it

Bush is so queer
kim jong like don't come here
and he knows that he fears messing with North Korea

cause he is well aware of the impact
but for the heroin,oil and expensive historical artifacts
Afghanistan he'll attack and invade Iraq
pushing propaganda as fact committing criminal acts

for his own personal program
sending soldiers to what I call the new Vietnaum

he operates with impunity
and every lie uncovered blame on the intelligence community
maybe he is the subject of all the dooms day prophecies
figuratively and literally the son of the beast

how can a country that once forced a race in enslavement
and another into almost complete annihilation
turn around and pass judgement on other nations
and hand out punishment for human rights violations

while involved in the systematic abuse
of those with darker hues
parrading the prey as predators on the evening news
not to mention the completely barbaric relocation
of the indigenous people of the nation 
confined to reservations

 there is a threat greater than Alqueda
the insatiable hunger of the war monger is fatal

by the enemy from within we are under attack
when the sky is pitch black and the pavement cracks
we collapse cause our airsack are filled with anthrax
at the exact moment of these unspeakable acts
it will cement the fact that we have been Bushwhacked

from the very inception
this egotistical maniac manipulated the election 
by voiding the various sections
armed with the finacially elite to protect him
sentencing our brethren to his new form of oppresion

to further impoverish the poor and strengthen the rich
this selfish son of a Bush is a son of a b

how can we call for the impeachment of our 42nd president
for dishonest answers about a mistress

while our 43rd 
ignited a war based on his word
which have now proven to be utterly absurd

look at all the lies
the discussion on weapons of mass destruction plus the Iraq and Alqueda ties
look at all the lies
the corruption criminal obstruction and our legal system barely bats and eye

not to mentiong civilians being beheaded and the Abu Gharaib travesty
at every press conference living out his John Wayne fantasy
unemployment soars it's a struggle to survive
the divide between the have and havenots become more wide
some turn to genocide
pushing a product his family is rumored to provide

Praise God

If it's not one thing then it's another.
I'm either fighting with my dad or hearing screams from my mother.
My girlfriend doesn't trust me. I can't pay for therapy.
I can't do this all alone. I get down on my knees.
I ask the lord for forgiveness, right before I begin.
Although he is a forgiving God, how could he look upon sin?
Prayer is so simple even a child can start.
It's not all imagination, your faith must come from the heart.
It's all so real, the thrill you feel, the chill that's going through you.
You no longer fear it, the holy spirit starts showing and glowing, it's true.
Who knew that you, that tough guy? The one that wouldn't believe?
Then why are you always calling out for him when your unable to achieve?
He's always there to help us. Stand out and give it a try.
The Closer you get to God you'll see this isn't a lie.
Thank you, Jesus! Praise Jesus! Halliugha! Oh Lord!
I can never lose a battle using you as a sword!
Life here is too short, yesterday is already gone.
Knowing where you'll spend eternity will help keep you moving on.
Praise God!

On the Wagon

On the Wagon…

I’m on the wagon
Out to slay the dragon
His breath of fire always one step behind
I’m on the wagon
Out to slay the dragon
With my only weapon 
The power stored within my mind…

Cleaning up the act
Facing all the facts
When you were burning you know you couldn’t see
Removing the blindfold
The truth is seen and told
Now you’re cooling down and fighting to be free

You’ve got to get away
Find someplace to stay
Immune to temptation as it looks for you
Start it once again
The beginning of the end
You’ve failed to see all that it has yet to do

I’m on the wagon, out to slay the dragon
His breath of fire always one step behind
On the wagon, out to slay the dragon
With my only weapon
The power stored within my mind…

Look straight into the mirror
How do things appear?
Can you make out through the haze, the bloodshot eyes
Remember the times you said, that’s it?
All those times you’d never quit
Can you, yourself, live with all of the lies?

I am on the wagon, out to slay the dragon
With his breath of fire always one step behind…

in the southern sun

He said
Look at here boy
Aint nothing worst than life
But you might as well live
And times are coming 
For better or worse 
You might as well hold on 
 
I’m still here 
And until I die 
I’ll be the same man
He says 
Boy I’m still here
And until I die 
I’ll be the same man 

I said father
I’m going to move away from the river
I’m going to be a city man
He said, sun down, it’s getting late
And you’ll have all night to chase those dreams
He said son now
Your mother calls so goodnight

I’m still here
And until I die
I’ll be the same man
He says 
Boy I’m still here

He wasn’t my real father I can’t even call him that 
Around a southern sun he marched in a straw hat
It’s a hundred degrees outside he must be crazy
Seventy-six and he takes on the humidity 
Better than me

He says 
World war II was nothing new
You should’ve seen Vietnam 
He says you see boy
I’m still here
And until I die
I’ll be the same man

My Father Told Me, Son

Written March 29, 2013


mother. father. always you wrestle inside me

When I was 8 years old
I got a model train set for Christmas
Not a slingshot or BB gun
Instead of going around in circles
I moved it right off the tracks
How it crashed and burned

When I was 12 years old
My father told me "son,
Don't you lose my best rod and reel
Or bend the strings that I strung"
So I jumped in the ocean
Setting these wheels in motion

This could be such a simple song
But how we were wrong

When I hit the big 2-0
I found a delicate flower
In the old junkyard field
I thought I'd give it to momma
But when I brought home that flower
The petals fell off in the shower

Adam's tale ended tragic
And so does this song
When I breathed in the chemicals
And felt so alone
Such a precious regret that they own
That I never had friends in my own home

Life is a horror story
Without a plot twist
My life was a mystery
Where everyone did it
Now were stuck on the precipice
Without a third wish

This could be such a simple song
But how we were wrong

In Your Love

Every time you kiss my lips 
I am drowning, I'm drowning
Like a never ending abyss
I am drowning, I'm drowning
Every time you whisper I miss you
I am drowning, I'm drowning
In your love,  in your love.

Life doesn't seem dangerous
When I'm drowning, yeah I'm drowning
Don't take it so serious
Cause I'm drowning, yeah I'm drowning
I don't care what they think of us
Cause I'm drowning, yeah I'm drowning
In your love, in your love

If It Wasn't For Him Needing Me

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

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

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

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

We’re on the road to Carolina,
Me & Bubba, my best friend.

We’re going to stop in Savanna.
To pick up ole toothless Glenn.

We’re ridin’ in my ole pickup,
The three of us have no fear.

‘Cause toothless Glenn of Savanah,
Brought along six cases of beer.


Verse 3
When it gets on towards evenin’,
We park the old pick up.

We’re all sittin’ on the tailgate,
Drinkin’ all the cases up.

Verse 4
When we get to Carolina,
Our heads feel all blown about.

Glen is barfin’ out the winder,
And Bubba has completely passed out.

NOTE:   TO be more politically correct: I am the designated driver.

Graveyard

A boy dressed in black
walking down to the graveyard
He held tightly to his Ouija board
Throwing it down on the mans grave
Thomas A. Fisher.
He set up candles around the mans gravestone
He chanted words from the underworld.
The lights blew out immediately
The branches on the trees fluttering in the heavy wind
Between the trees stood a tall black figure
Flashes in the boys mind A man in an electric chair
His skin bubbling, his eyes popping from his head
Bursting against the fabric around his head
No flesh left on his bones
They threw his body into a wooden coffin
Throwing it in the water, they sunk him to the bottom
A huge rock sat on top
The boy shook his head, out of the allusion
The figure was gone He quickly got up
running back to the exit 
Something tightly gripped his jacket
Pulling him back unto the ground
A loud shout of a scream, he got up seeing a woman
Near the edge of the pond, only one name she screamed
THOMAS!! Her scream was horrid, the boy watched
As the woman pulled out a rope from her jacket
Tightly wrapping it around the tree
She hung herself before the boy
He held out his hand- NO! w.. WAIT
He shouted out at her, only to see she vanished 
With every step he took she slowly faded.
He stopped before the rope twirling in the wind
Looking down at the water, it bubbled
Like someone boiling water on the stove
A huge rock floated up, along with the top of a wooden coffin
He stood back, knowing what the allusion was earlier
A crack of branches coming from behind him
Turning slowly he seen the huge disembodied figure
Reaching out, he gripped the boy by his throat
Throwing him into the boiling river
Oh how he screamed, the man stood and watched
The boys skin bursting from his bones, his head was no longer
Seen or attached to his body.
Three crows sat upon the tree branch
making their sounds but even louder than usual
The rope swung back and forth
the rock sunk and covered the coffin
What the boy didn't know is that when he 
Played with the Ouija board he unleashed the man from his tomb
The black disembodied figure now roams freely around the graveyard
The boys body remains in the wooden coffin
Under a huge rock in the river.
In the screams of the wind
You can hear the man say
"I thank god for the suffering"

For centuries the world has been confused 
between the lights of heaven and the flames of hell
Who knew a simple angel would go that far
just to get what he wanted

Sweet Rap

I'm gonna speak my mind, I'm gonna talk loud.
I want you to come with me, and the rest of your hot crowd.

Excuse-me-ladies, come over, and take a sip.
Please-be-with-me, I'm well equipped in the hips.

I've dreamed of you, since the day I could crawl.
Dropped my jaw, when I saw, y'all, tall, in the hall.

So, sit back, relax, on the bench, I'm the coach.
As I move close, start to make my approach.

When I look in your eyes, I can't explain how I feel.
For real, chill, in your beauty, time sits still.

I would swim the across the seas, just to get one sight.
Of all your beauty, Cutie, and to kiss you goodnight.

Drop, and hop, right over the winning team.
Cause, U without me, is like strawberries, without cream.

Just remember one thing, before my rap quit.
My name is T Rabbit and I'm your number one pick!

Straight Up Sin

You woke on this day
your heart pounds
you can't breathe.
Contemplating your needs
your thoughts feed
the hunt.
Your focus to find
to seek
there's no truth.
Deceived by the feel
thoughts of pleasure
you feel pain.
Depression and anger
where are you
tonight.
Pacing and sweating
no relief
you can't wait.
The searching and calling
the waiting
haunts you.
Vicious is sin
and it laughs
in your face.
Straight up sin.
You lost control and let it in.
Straight up sin.
That fear is locked up inside you.
Straight up sin.
You sold your soul and found a new friend.
Straight up sin.
When will it ever end.

When I Grow Up Daddy...

When I grow up Daddy…

I want to be just like you
Analytical and strong willed
Better than Isiah and Magic combined
The most mystic magician when I’m handling the pill
You remember your slang, don’t you…
“On the court I’m cold, Bam,” and my favorite “you dig.”
I remember it like yesterday; you know –
Doing our own thing every other weekend
You were that holy grail of knowledge
And I was hooked, receiving it again and again
You delivered an answer for every need
Even when my needs were more wants and desires
In an almost ominous passion
You watched my trials and tribulations transpire
When the flames of life burned too hot
You snatched my ass from the fires
I love you for this

When I grow up Daddy…

I want to radiate strength and character
The same way you did when faced with your most
Trying feat
I hope to stand tall and honorable when –
I am judged and sentenced on my responsibility
Will I look my son in the eye and say the tiring cliché
“Don’t do as I do, son be better than me”
Or will I improve upon the man I am, by correcting my
Transgressions and exhibiting
The true character a responsible father should be
I pray for your wisdom and resilience
To recognize my mishaps, correct them and return to better form
Mistakes are keys, in the continued pursuit to perfection
With each generation perfection’s standards
Are altered and thus reborn
The values you taught in the past are my moral foundation
Some were perfect and some were some-what flawed
Presently for those, I am making alterations
Hopefully, I will instill a more responsible and updated
Version of values for our next generation

Daddy I have grown up…we are similar but very different!

{This was written a few years back when}

A Thin Smile

I sat down to write a happy song
But the words won't come
And neither will the tears.

I've Got Pain Inside, But No One Cares

When you smile at me i laugh at you
When you laugh at me i smile back
I try and hide the pain and agony I feel
So i left this earth and went to Mars
to live closer to the lovely stars;
you might not think it's true

You say you know me 
you act like you know me
you even talk like you do,
but that's not true

You talk about me like you know me from deep inside
you have even tried to have that denied
but sooner or later i'm gonna die
and no one will care

To you and them it doesn't matter anymore
'Cause I'll be under the soiled floor
I'll be forgotten;

never spoke of
I'll be hurt and killed because of love
no one will miss me 
i'll die with no one's sympathy
they won't even ask what happened to me

Livin' alone i think i hate myself
It's like i'm on the top of a never-ending bookshelf
feelin' as if i'm gonna fall any second now
I'm gonna die and won't remember how

I'm sayin' to the world "good-bye"
now i'm gonna ask you this:

Can ya hear my shouts and cries 
can ya see the tears in my eyes 
can ya hear, can ya see, can you feel me?

baby, please...help me
take the pain away
so i'll never deal with it for
another day

TAG

Tag! Your it! Like in the school days.
I got your mind lost, like you were in a corn maze.
This isn't Halloween, just another day of the week.
I'm always getting candy. I say forget trick or treat.
You can forget Flasnick. People just call me Flash.
My rap game's so scary, I say hell with the mask.
Forget Jason, They call me Lil T.
Wake up it's not Freddy, it's me you see in your dreams.
I'm rated X. Noway I'm PG13.
Sisco and Ebert said not to see the damn thing.
So if you do, you better call me the king.
I'll give you six days to live. I'm more hard core then the Ring!

Haver

So many people have lost their lives
Too many husbands have struck their wives
when can we get over this horrible hate
will we learn our lesson before it's too late

there goes the sun
there goes the sun!
we've walked so many miles and we've only begun
so march onward my son into the distant blue
don't be afraid I'll come back for you

So many lies stacked up before us all
will we catch ourselves before we fall
I guess it's not fair to me and you
that the walk is so long and the breaks are so few

there goes the moon
there goes the moon!
down and out and under but don't give up so soon
so keep forward my son and keep walking on
before the night is over you'll be ready for the dawn

why is there no one left there on the hill
is it because we shot him down with our words that kill
when will we learn that it's far from over
will it be when we rest under ground beneath earth and clover

there goes my boy
there goes my boy!
onward he marches in search of pride and joy
just keep headin' forward though you're tired and sore
your walkin' days aren't over but 
my son, you're ready, for more!!!

MORE THAN UNUSABLE DUST

Sometimes it’s hard for us to understand that firmly we can stand with in our creator’s hands.  And if we open our eyes we will be able to see his unfold plans that show us that with his son Jesus, we can be more than unusable dust, but we have to be willing to place within him our complete trust. Oh and our Lord knows the heart he placed in us sometimes makes it easy to give in to giving up when things are just so rough and it seems like the pages of our lives are far to torn, and inside our worn down minds we cannot fully comprehend his gift to us of being re-born, and if we open our eyes we can see that inside his hands he has placed within us the secrets to his unfolded plans with in his word, and through his son Jesus we can be molded and shaped into something greater than being unusable dust,  yes I am more valuable than unusable dust, Oh through this journey of our life’s, if we are willing to open our eyes, we can come out of the darkness into light, and instead of hiding in the crowd shy and weak, wondering for answers and promises to prayers we seek will come true,  we will remember what you did for us on Calvary and we will shout your name, yes we will shout your name in victory, as you hold us in your hands, and share with us all your unfolded plans,  and as you draw us near and place within us a desire to know you and your son , Jesus we will see that we are far more valuable then unusable dust.

The Best Philosopher

Beside Karnaphuli*, 
Midst leafs of tree, 
What am I looking for? 
  
Who lives at far shore? 
  
At night, in my room, 
When I see empty pot, 
And I see undressed cot, 
I become heart-sick more. 
  
Who lives at far shore? 
  
Sometimes, in my sky, 
I fly here and there. 
Yea, this is my mother: 
The best philosopher.

Karnaphuli*: the largest and most important river in Chittagong

SOLDIER BOY

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

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

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

Welcome home, Soldier Boy.

Going Postal

 
There is no place for me to go 
I'll spend my life right here I know, 
I lost my job then lost my dough 
Last night I lost my bride with adio'! 

I stayed the straight and narrow road, 
And carried, always, my own load. 
Missed not a day of work, I'm told, 
For twenty years. No pocket watch of gold? 

It tore my heart apart you see; 
They threw me out then tossed the key 
Without a nod to loyalty 
Or help me find a job at fifty-tjree.

So now I'm standin' over daddy's grave, 
Ten days from calm to ragin' full-blown rave; 
Hey daddy! I'm no good and I'm not brave 
But I'll be killin' souls your God can't save: 
I'm hopin for a score of fifty-three 
One soul for every year of wretched me. 

I do remember daddy tellin' me when I was young - 
"I'm proud my son of every single song I've ever sung, 
Because the wrongs I found in life to fire and ice were flung! 
The Good Book said to cling to IT so to IT I have clung - 
That Book was good to me young son and helped me climb each rung." 

An unsophisticated man from birth until you died, 
But damn it dad you took me to the brink of suicide; 
I grew to be not me but you and you died satisfied. 
But dad, life spent denying truth denied the Wolves outside. 

I took a look at your Good Book and found profound its way - 
Make sure you do to those who did to you and don't delay! 
Hey dad, I thought I'd share with you, I bought my gun today 
And it's a beaut you'd love to shoot and help me bag my prey; 
But in the grave you stay to serve your well deserved decay. 

I wish that I could do to you what I must do to them; 
For you put all the evil in me I can't seem to stem. 
My heart and body, now my blood, is turning pus and phlegm, 
But when they're dead then I'll have fed my sweet revenge its gem, 
So I can turn and kill myself and evil you did breed. 
You lit your pious Book up bright, why not your evil seed?

Lonely Soul

------------------------
 Dialog of 2 poets:
----------------------------------------
1. Lonely Soul
-----------------------------------

Between heaven and earth,

between summer and winter,

Lonely Soul rushed,

rustling her wings.

Up to the stars,

again downward

from eave to eave,

from window to window

and again, she is in flight.

The fires burn somewhere;

somewhere music and laughter,

someone’s joyful days

dazzling success and good luck.

Lonely Soul

has lost the way between the stars

in her long searches, all wet with tears.

Again, she hurries,

 there is neither a map nor way.

But she should SEARCH

and FIND, sometime!

Where?  Who?  And why?

She is my own soul,

which searches for my lost son.

                                   Dina Televitskaya 


        2. Sing, Wounded Soul!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


I cannot hold your cries,

 they slip through my fingers.

I cannot take away your pain,

it lies so far beyond my reach.

I cannot dig out your sorrow,

its roots are too deep.

I cannot chase away your fears,

they hide and creep out later.

I can only tell you, you are loved.

So, sing, wounded soul,

your tears do not fall into emptiness.


            James Dalton Byrd (American poet)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.Yes, I will sing again! 
-----------------------------------


Yes, I will sing again! 

Thanks for your advice, O my Friend! 

A song is a fine thing,  

You’re right: it is not the end! 



Hear? I already sing 

about the kisses of a rain, 

about green-eyed Spring, 

which gives the lilacs hope again.



I sing about your kindness and 

About force of friendship,

About meeting with you, my Friend 

Sometime, on poetic ship.

Daddy Now Please Pray With Me

Daddy now, please pray with me,
for today I'm sailing stormy seas.
I know you say you're but a man,
who tries to live the Master's plan.

I'm weathering gray storms, except a few,
 and the turmoil would drown me, if not for you.
The wind is so strong, the waves are so high,
Tattered sails against the sky!

And I recall you telling me, 
of Jesus Christ,  Who calmed the seas.
And yes, small faith can the mountains move,
and how He died His love to prove.

So Daddy now, please pray with me,
to God's sweet Son, Who dwells in me.
For I am daughter of a man,
and weak at times and cannot stand
against these tides of shifting sands.

You say, "He's still upon His throne",
and with our prayers, I'm not alone!
And God is good and loves me still,
He will offer strength to swim these swells.

Oh Daddy now, please pray with me,
Some choices I made were not of Thee.
At times I've wandered and gone astray,
I feel somehow I've lost my way.

Tell me again my right hand he still holds, 
and how in heaven the streets are gold, and
once we're there no one is old because now 
Jesus holds my soul!

Daddy now please pray with me like when I 
was a child of three beside my bed on bended knees. 

And perhaps somehow these words I write, may move 
another to change their lives, for Jesus loves me this
I know and his blood has washed me white as snow. 

And when you've said "In Jesus Name" I feel brand 
new and not the same, so daddy now please pray with me
though I am grown and no longer three. 

He'll lift me up on wings of love and forgive me
of all the wrong's I'v done! Then I can drop my anchor
deep and mend white sails on peaceful seas!

Zring sissity rib rang

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement primarily involved visual arts, literature—poetry, 
art manifestoes, art theory—theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war 
politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works.

This is my attempt at Dada.

A Teenage Boy

Having a son to carry on the family name
Was something to be proud of
Bust since he became a teen, nothing has remained the same
He has changed, thinking he knows all
I still love him with all my heart, but not his mouth
He wants to argue and talk back every chance he gets
Since he became a teen his life has gone south
Getting in trouble when the urge hits him
He’s 15, not a little boy, definitely not yet a man
Have asked for advice, have tried several different things
He loves to try me when dad’s not around, because he thinks that he can
Please Lord, hear my plea, I need assistance right away
We clash and we fight
Please Lord, I beg of you to step in and help him see
That the way he treats me just ain’t right
Help him to grow up and to respect
Hold me back from causing him any harm
Give me patience, guidance, and wisdom
To direct him on the right path
And once more hold him in my arms
Let me remember when he was born he brought me great joy
And remind me to praise him when he does do good
For no longer is he my little boy
But a teen who claims he’s so misunderstood

HOWLWEEN AND MEOWWEEN

Halloween is not just for kids...
what about those gorgeous pets
that we snuggle, love, kiss and willfully spoil?
Shouldn't they have their own
special Howlween and Meowween
with treats never tasted in a bright party hall?



I love pets as you all do, and with loving and tender care    
I spoil them with warm clothes and matching shoes;
a wool hat and tiny gloves to keep them from frost!
Look at them, aren't they adorable and look sharper 
than the less-loved pets that are bored with their blues?  
Can you compare a well-groomed one to a scruffy one? 



On this coming Halloween, dress up your pets for success,
disregard the dumb looks of certain unintelligent folks,
they never see humor in anyone or anything, and they can't laugh
at these cuties that have a ton of affection on their mellow faces;
what would they do to be patted or be cuddled in their embrace?
They would give them their howleen and neowween for a soft caress!



And on every street people walk their dogs and cats dressed like mine,
what a surprise to watch this parade of adorable pets that look up and smile!
They will never know who was the genius behind all this, but gently and happily they stroll!
So who's to say that Halloween isn't for them? They're like our children who delight our soul!
And on each Halloween night, let them out, and let them do their Howlween and Meowween,
to enjoy the Halloween celebration, but tomorrow they'll not remember where they had been!

prayers on mute

Some of us are built 
For harsh conditions
Suffrage held
Within a wicked vision
Reprimanded as a man
How can your father reprimand this hand
Discipline disciples 
in a cycle that would not turn in sand
Held in Carthage 
A piece of a Martian
Some say I’m soon to be departing
Pieces of gold in a bronze room
Shining through chivalry and doom
Sterile silvery praising a ring for the groom
All prized possessions of doubt now loom
Pushing the broom
On a straw bed 
Don’t u love this coon
You can be kind to the cruelest person
And at the end of the day 
They’re still cruel and worsened 
This worlds got to end
No sanctuary circles my morbid realms
I’m away from peace
And aware that it will never cease

Only time can stop me now 
Wishes sealed over a candle in a darkened hall
Head down I just might die on this wall
In this race I’ll survive somehow
Only time can stop me now 

I’m so scared 
Where are your prayers
I was so scared 
Why weren’t you there
I’m so scared 
should I have been spared

The Greatest Song

Name of song artist: George Harrison   -   Song Title: "Isn't It A Pity."

Poem below:

The greatest song of all time
shows how all people are blind
we either can't see the forest thru the trees
or we simply don't care about anyone's needs

The greatest day we will find
is when we unfold the love in our mind
when we cure violence of all kind
we can peacefully learn to unwind

What greater deed can there be
when all people can finally see
the words sung in such a great song
It's a pity, you don't sing along

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

My Favorite Things. ( Contest.)

Cookies and cocoa when you least expect them,
Your lover smiling, come hither, well.. ahem!
Finding that last coin to complete the roll,
these are some things that bring joy to my soul.

A warm glass of brandy, a fireplace burning,
A puppy you feared lost, a neighbor returning.
Your girl holding hands for a leisurely stroll,
these are some things that bring joy to my soul.

A day at the circus, a night on the boardwalk,
A brother, a sister, to laugh with in small talk.
A young kitten purring, wraps you like a stole,
These are some things that bring joy to my soul.

When I'm weary,
eyes so bleary,
I call each one to mind.
And then I will go
with the pleasure I know
that in each of these things, I'll find!

Sung to the tune: "My Favorite Things."

Foullen-he turns around standing far from Kaz-
Kaz- ilove you. -He gets up walking towards the direction in which Foullen was smiling alittle- You bit me and it set off sparks Im mesmerised by you and your existance I let you feed because i cant stand anything happening to you. I love you
Foullen-quickly turns around looking at Kaz-
Kaz-He stands directly in front of him touching Foullen on the cheek looking in his eyes-
Foullen-he quickly grabbed his things, fastly opening the door walking out into the woods-
Kaz-he runs out following him- Foullen!
Foullen-he walks faster not turning around as he huffs out the door-
Kaz-he contines to go after him sprinting and following him closely still calling out to him- Foullen!
Foullen-he turns around his eyes glowing a bright bright blue- "what!"
Kaz-Why are you running? You had a sparkle in your eye when i told you i loved you, and now your running. what is going on?
Foullen-he would mumble something under his breathe and begins to talk louder- " eh um idk, no one has said that before, how was i suppose to react? happy?" -he closed his eyes and sighed as if he failed-
Kaz-Im sorry if it upset you but its the reason i keep coming back, I keep coming for you. -he grabed his arm lightly in a comforting manner-
Kaz-He kisses him gently- I dont want to let you go ever -He whispered softly in Foullens ear after their lips parted-
Foullen-he turned away from Kaz and started to walk away-
Kaz-He got up going towards Foullen wrapping his arms around the vampires chest from behind-
Foullen-"im nothing you want" -he unwraps Kaz's arms from his chest and pushes him away-
Kaz-You are what I want exactly in fact. Your strong and beautiful, and you make me smile inside. I want nothing else but you.
Foullen-"many people come up to me saying that, how do i know your not any different?" -he sighed looking down-
Kaz-Well, Ive followed you thus far, and I keep advancing admist all of you attepmts to push me away. And i know you felt something when you kissed me. Im here for the long hull, and I know im not perfect and never will be but I aspire to be as perfect as I can for you. And even when we fight to the point of crying, I wanna be the one to hold you, and try my best to protect you in whatever way i can.

A Long Tough Ride

It’s been a long, tough ride
And I’ve been working like a Mom
It’s been a long tough ride
My heart is ticking like a bomb
I know my duty it was
To work and manage the house
But soon I’ll feel so lost

When she’s gone
Things will not be the same
When she’s gone
Oh how my heart will grieve

It’s been a long, tough ride
And I’ve been working like a slave
It’s been a long, tough ride
My mind is reeling like a tape
I love my baby so much
I know my heart will be crushed
Yet I will be alright

When she’s gone
Things will not be the same
When she’s gone
Oh how my heart will grieve

It’s been a long tough ride
I should be happy to be free
It’s been a long tough ride
I should dancing in the breeze
But when I think of the world
She has to live in and work 
I’ll still be on my knees in prayer
Because it’s scary out there
But we will be alright
It’s been a long tough ride

Apophis

You say you know no saviour,
You say you know no God. 
But find your scripts and rosary,
You'll need them when I'm done. 

Seven armies couldn't stop me.
Seven horsemen couldn't budge
All that I have inside me,
And that I've become. 

Never underestimate your enemies
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet.
Never underestimate your enemies
Or what I'll do for victory.
Shield your eyes so you don't see
That I'm not done yet. 

Happiness; I've done all I can.
Loneliness, let go of my hand.
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet. 

Drink your holy water and cleanse inside,
I'm waiting until midnight.
I won't stop until I hold your heart.
I won't stop until own your soul. 

This evil plays such a pretty song,
You know the words now sing along.
Oh the notes they sound so sweet
In this dark, dark, dark symphony. 

Happiness; I've done all I can.
Loneliness, let go of my hand.
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet.

Never underestimate your enemies
I've got my scars for all to see
And I'm not done yet.
Never underestimate your enemies
Or what I'll do for victory.
Shield your eyes so you don't see
That I'm not done yet

Like Knives

I opened my hand to yours.
Greeted by knives.
The hidden agenda of a parasite
wanting to feast on the likes of me.
Infectious poison coming from your cold, blue lips. 
Lies masked by my attraction to your curvacious hips.
My mind taken in by trick after trick.
I pull you closer as the time passes.
Soon will come a time that you will pray to forget.
Your lies penetrate my flesh like knives.
Cold, steel insertion.
Your poison preys to infiltrate my veins to destroy the body.
Like knives your kiss, I'm swallowing your lies, your words slicing up my insides.
Time after time. 
You bury yourself and your wicked ways inside me.
Wishing to clog the arteries.
You've punctured my skin, I've allowed you in.
Inside my body.
You are making your way into every square inch of me.
You're the stones that have taken the place of my kidneys.
Like knives, you lacerate yourself into the depths of my appendix.
You're the black cloud covering my lungs.
Like knives you slither to sliver my liver piece by piece.
You're so captivating.
I digest you into my intestines.
Permanent damage. 
You have become every bit of the fluid that circulates through my body, my veins.
Like knives, with each stab, each puncture, each wound.
I have become every bit as responsible for what's about to happen as you.
Cuz you've carried these knives since you've come into my life.
Now it's time for me to end your time.
Become the sandman.
I've been strapped with a pistol since the beginning.
This isn't a fairy tale ending.
I bet now you wish you had brought more than a knife to a gunfight.

Come Back Daniel

Come back Daniel
You cannot go outside to play
Come Back, Daniel
I told you to do what I say!

Wake up Daniel
You have to get ready for school
Wake up, Daniel
You know you must follow the rules

Goodbye Daniel
Yes, mama folded your shirt!
Goodbye, Daniel
Drive straight back home after work...

(Come back Daniel
We never went outside to play
Come back, Daniel
There's so much I still had to say

Wake up Daniel
You've got to get out of this school
Wake up, Daniel
Somebody changed the damn rules

Goodbye Daniel
Mama still cries in your shirt
Goodbye, Daniel
Just thought I'd drop by after work)

"This Poem"

THIS POEM "LOVES.. WINE..."
Brings out THE BEAST,
in my womanly, female, cravings
The PASSION that I Feel
When I Read This Poem,
MAKES me, want to take off
all
that is on the outside of me.
And feel what can only
be share between two
hungry calculating souls in love.

My lips grow swollen with ever word
as if i am utterly skin close to you.
And you are caressing, every carve
of my inner and outer thoughts.
no words have ever moved me
to thoughts of so deep, with moist intentions
to which have no endless meaning in its passions
before!
if only I, could sip
for your cup
just maybe
I, too could know and feel,
of this sweet "loves.. wine...
you speak of...( http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/loves-wine/ )

I AWAKEN WITH THE NEW SUNRISE

As the dreary night slowly vanishes,
taking along the weary stars,
but the wakeful moon decides to stay...
I awaken with the new sunrise
admiring the glimmering sea
with colors resembling diamonds!

I breathlessly wonder
why God has created it
with a painter's hand,
and giving us that joy...
a devine joy as a reminder: 
that all He has made is entirely His;
and in the same manner
we care for our bodies 
with much preoccupation,
we must take care of all creation,
so that our children 
can enjoy it indefinitely!

Among fields of jacandra and dandelions swaying,
I awaken with the new sunrise in sheer delight...
to face life as it was when nobody was there;
and we can imagine the thought running
through God's mind to put a human being there:
to watch and control the beautiful earth!

I awaken with the new sunrise,
to discover a small bird soaring...
going further and further up until
he has picked up the speed of an eagle;
I awaken with the new sunrise...rejoicing, 
opening up my spirit to a song of praise!

If I'm still living, I owe it to my Lord,
and there aren't days I don't proclaim His  word...
when I awaken with the new sunrise,
and I gladly watch the golden sun radiantly rise!

where ive always been

The air in this tomb sticks to my lungs offers no relief
The moments of comfort are short and brief
the darkness engulfs all of my senses
like the wrapping of guilt in so many confessions

maybe i deserve this twisted fate this ironic end
what i wouldn't give know just for a friend
my body grows weaker as the ordeal carries on
i pray this time tomorrow i will already be gone

laying in this bed i feel its my coffin my casket
don't know where I'm going but ill get there in a hand basket
even though i know its almost over regret seems to be my only companion
inside there is enough sorrow to feel the grand canyon

this late in the end i cant find the strength to speak
so much left unsaid am i wicked or just weak
i think people are here with me voices and a familiar face
the people i love cant follow me know they must stay in this place

if theres more after this life has passed me by
ill wait for you all on the other side 
i hope I've left fond memories with you all
you kept me standing after every single fall

Road To Somewhere Song on CD

Stay on your road to somewhere...
For the goals you hold dear...
follow your dreams out there...
and on your road to somewhere.....

You'll crawl before you walk...
and walk before you run...
just keep those strong thoughts...
through the rising and setting sun...

And with your hopes and dreams be bold...
keep the faith in the goals you hold...
strive to reap the thoughts you sow...
on your road to somewhere....

You'll crawl before you walk...
and walk before you run...
just keep those strong thoughts...
through the rising and setting sun...

Stay on your road to somewhere...
for the goals you hold dear...
follow your dreams out there...
on your road to somewhere...

Strive to reap the thoughts you sow,
with your hopes and dreams be bold,
keep the faith, for such is gold...
stay on your road to somewhere...
for your dreams out there.

Change

Change is the way the we all can relate,
We change fate, change hate, change the things that degrate,
And at a range, change seems like it only does great,
But isn't it strange, change can lead to such a great debate,
When it was only meant to open up gates,
For the men and women who want equal rights and rate,
For the broken soldiers, held by their brothers,
Only waiting to be seen, in the end,
By their mothers in crates...

As she throws herself upon it with no restraint,
There can be no mistake,
Even though it seems so fake,
She waits in the aftermath of this wake,
For the world to find the right path,
Have no hate,
But all around she sees wrath,
Losses faith,
And decides to forge her own path,
Through the gate,
To the powers that be,
The power select,
The power of the people that we elect,
The power they neglect,

So she argues certain elements,
With rhetoric and relevance,
And scholarly intelligence,
But all they ever tell her is...
"We'll get back to this,"
When they really mean is...
"Stop reminiscing on past events,"

She decided that she can't really live without her kid,
And takes a little stroll off the Brooklyn Bridge,
Do you know what she asked when she had the floor?
Just for a little bit of change like I said before....

'The Cowboy On The Battlefield ... ' (Cowboy Poem # 12)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                    * * * *

… Old Cowboy, On The Battlefield
Remembers His Mama’s Words
‘Just Make It Home, Son … 
… and We’ll Celebrate Our Return …

Scotland has to be Seen " Beatlemania "

In the countryside in bloom adorn
Beautiful scenery for all to see
The sun shines down, its full of life
Different shades of different greens


Through the glens our trips begun
So many sights that have to be seen
Feel the passion of hearts so brave
This land called Alba, peacefully serene


    The land of the Scots, is the best place in the world
    Best place in the world, best place in the world
    The land of the Scots, is the best place in the world
    Best place in the world, best place in the world


So come and see our beauty hoard
So many sights for you to explore
Different vistas, makes us say


    The land of the Scots, is the best place in the world
    Best place in the world, best place in the world
    The land of the Scots, is the best place in the world
    Best place in the world, best place in the world


To live and die in the Highlands breeze
A world apart a different breed
We are the Scots, no in between
So please visit Alba, it has to be seen


    The land of the Scots, is the best place in the world
    Best place in the world, best place in the world
    The land of the Scots, is the best place in the world
    Best place in the world, best place in the world

a midnight wish

There’s a chill in the cold 
And it’s going nowhere 
She says it’s going to get worse 
Before it get better 
But we’ll hold on like stormy weather

If midnight falls then I’m homeless 
She says so calmly 
The winds going to take me away
But I don’t want to go lonely 

She likes to think
That you can carry on for sometime
She marries for the day
But she yields from the moments 

There’s everything you hope for
A map for the road
A picture for your wall
A lasso around the moon
Dawn, she's going to come to soon

She smiles softly
If midnight falls then it’s hopeless
She says so calmly
The winds going to take me far away
But I don’t want to leave you lonely 

She concludes
You can’t take away from a man
What he’s already lost 
But she insist 
That bubble baths and a warm massage
Will take away your Sunday misery

i fear it all sometimes
i hear your screams
and i wonder
if you're calling
but i can't reach you 
no i couldn't reach you
i tried but i just couldn't save you

YOURS...IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SMILE

Yours..is the most beautiful smile,
the source of all my inspirations;
that star never fading, always outshining others...


And from it joy is emanated;
with the speed of a shooting star,
to earth it falls, for me to catch it without harm...



Mona Lisa may have the most perfect smile,
but yours is the densest and fondest;
so fresh and alive...a blooming flower awaiting light...   



The Italian Renaissance's painters and poets could not have imagined
a beauty so delicate, inspiring and pure existing in my time;
Dante's passion for Beatrice turning into deprivation and desire...



What my vision beholds is unexplainably mysterious and yet simple,
purity and innocence reflecting your soul's mirror to make me gaze deeper;
entrust all your thoughts and feelings to me, and I will be your keeper... 



Yours...is the rarest and most attractive smile,
and on it unblemished love can be built, a fortress outlasting time;
unafraid, share it with me to explore the wonders of this universe...

Family is Overrated!

Headin’ back home
I don’t know what to think
I want to roam but
"I disagree," says my shrink

What does he know anyway?
And why does he want me to stay?
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

Walkin’ through the door
I see my dad
My bags hit the floor and
My dad looks rather mad

Why does he think I’m so bad?
And whys he always mad?
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

I see my mom too
What does she think
She says, "Your rents due!" and
She leaves with a wink

Why should I have to pay rent?
When all my moneys spent?
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

I see my brother
Sittin' on his bed
I ask him, "What’s with mother?" But
He never heard what I said

Never liked him anyway
I feel like I’ve been betrayed
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

We gather ’round the table
For some dinner
"So are you able to
pick anyone but a sinner?"

My mom never liked my girlfriend
Thought she’d pass like a trend
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

Packed my things up and
Headed for the door
"I’m leavin' for a distant land!" Then
My mom’s jaw hit the floor

Never liked my family anyway!
Wanted to leave every day!
Family is overrated!
Family makes life no fun!
My family is too outdated!
My family makes me want to run!

Believing in You

To learn from the needy,
To care for the strong,
To reach for the heavens,
Where we all belong.

To climb every mountain,
Atop every hill,
To find out my purpose,
The good Father's will.

To fly like an angel,
From pond to lakeshore,
To venture the valleys,
Seen never before.

To swim through the  waters,
Of sparkling streams,
To soar through the vast clouds,
Of peace and of dreams.

To travel off Earth,
To a place quite unknown,
To witness my eyes,
Where the birds have not flown.

A place that is fruitful,
WIth flowers and trees,
With fresh air and water,
A song in the breeze.

And last but not least,
With my kind, loving friends,
A pastime, a party,
Where peace never ends.

To make all this happen,
Seems like such a chore,
But that what beliefs, and our dreams
Were made for.

                        ive heard a lot of people say 
                        they would like to be in my shoes today 
                        they would like to go to work at the place called jeep 
                        but let me tell you one thing son 
                        it really is not too much fun 
                        because in here you sow more than you reap

                         you work until your back and feet are sore 
                          after a long and hectic day 
                          you cant go out and even play 
                          your body just wont take it anymore

                          and you think it will be fun 
                          then let me tell you one thing son

Im in love with another man

I know we had hopes, and dreams,
making memories,
but it had to come to an end
my love for you is just a friend
Im in love with my man

I apologise
for you fallin for me
I apologise
when we made love that early spring
I couldnt go on like this
you put my love to a test
my love for you is just a friend
and this affair had to end

I can not

but it had to come to an end
my love for you is just a friend
Im in love with my man

he gives me positive words
he gives me the time
that I need
he makes my heart skip a beat
I let his love set me free

he is the best I ever had
he lift me up when I am sad
he mean so much to me
and you a nice friend indeed

"but"....

I can not share my heart with you
Im in love with another man
and he's nothin like you
I know we had hopes, and dreams,
making memories,
but it had to come to an end
my love for you is just a friend
Im in love with my man

I know ya heart is breaking

Bound to the street

Ragged and funny 
In dire need of money
I bruise the pot-holed streets of the city
Maiming the waste-filled alleys and dirty
Daily I play hide and seek with death on the razor-sharp edge of humanity.
Once I had a home
Now I cannot pay the dues
Once I went to college
Now I cannot pay the fees
Once I had a wife 
Now I cannot afford the price
Poor the result of no economic emancipation
Bound to the street because of some people's creation
In a vacuum-filled belly I try the robber's invention
Oouch! I cry in incaceration
This cry , my cry, I cry
Bound to the street, is it God's case 
Bound to the street, the street my place
Bound to the street, the street I hate

Eyes closed, tears drop
The drama of my sleeping mystery 
unfolding before my mental eyes like a tapestry
I ravish and languish in hunger
Feeding on left-overs
Left by generous shoppers
Hungry I was, am and still will be
The history but of themhitherto societies is a history of class struggle
and exploitation. How shall I leave the street struggle
In such a society tailor-designed to suffer the helpless
Where the should-be-helpers 
Are the pioneers of the exploitation,
Suppression and oppression of the defenceless
As for me and my street-mates
We will travel along singing a song
The song, my cry.
Bound to the street, is it God's case 
Bound to the street, the street my place
Bound to the street, the street I hate

I come from far further
I am not a bird of your further
You are a son to your father
You are your mother's daughter
I have non to call father or mother 
Neither to call sister nor brother
But pay no attention to criticism like weather
Rather lets read the holy book together
Ang gather as a congregation together 
The bread as you gather
Lets break share and eat together.
Until we harness a new philosophy
I will always cry 
This cry my cry.
Bound to the street, is it God's case 
Bound to the street, the street my place
Bound to the street, the street I hate

Undefeated

I can take more than you can dish out
Charge me full-bore
And see what I’m talking about
Find yourself head first in the ground
Without a sound
Not even a peep
From the weak surrounding me
Strength is my only option left
Everyone else tried their best
Before giving up, I guess

The power within me
Will give me the will to be
Stronger than he or she
Two against one, few against many
The battle has begun
But the war is never ending
Hell man!
You think you can understand
How the world just keeps repeating?
Think you have your "stones" in hand
Ready to take on the master plan?
You must be kidding!

At one time I was slang’in
Eight-ball’in and gang-bang’in
Roll’in hard, liv’in high
The one that could not be outdone
Takes the title & packs up his guns
-- And you wanna know why? –
‘Cause life is do or die!
And there comes a day when you have to say
Good-bye……and walk away (undefeated)

Tempting Love

Tempting Love
     By Dane Smith-Johnsen

Hand in hand, we walked beside the winding trail.
We laughed and loved along this path by and by. 
And felt extraordinary; two hearts entwined.
The faintest scent of lavender embraced us.
Distantly, gardenias decorated, white.
A quiet interlude impassioned delight.
And our thoughts within the wind lightly soared.
As in times before, we knew love’s quiet peace.
The day thus started vanquished every sadness. 
Here, on this very lane, so often traversed,
Our wildest dreams of joyfulness found birth.
And you, as every part of me, prayed to kiss.
There, beside the wall, beneath the eyes of God.
Restraint unveiled; sweet promises hence covered.
Destined to impasse passion until betrothed, 
Love’s temperance, the foundation of honor,
Defied assorted pangs of fleshly yearnings.
To taste your lips and electrify your soul,
With such emotion that only true love knows-
Feel deep tenderness against your thirsty heart.
From temptation thus entangled we must part.
Before shame singes two souls with grave sorrow.
We must pledge our love to keep tomorrow.
And vow to enter marriage pure, undefiled.
Let us live to save this passion once again.
And fill our souls, memories until then.


Details | Lyric | |

Because of Love

In times we say
To all those that we love
We will be there
To have and to hold
I know that love
Will help us all to grow
If we love them
They will love us in return

I think I know where this story heads
Will you do the honor, of being my friend?

Like a sailor on the ocean
Passing through the open sea
Like a teacher in the classroom
Helping those in need
Take my hand, and we'll walk through the gateway
Because I love you, I give you my heart, today.

I've heard it said,
That love will conquer all the odds
Can it be so?
It can, with the help from all the gods
Can love be grand?
If others fail to see,
It will fail them, so I beg you take my hand

Like a mother and a father
Raising young ones to grow
Like the summer and the winter
One rains, one snows
If we let one another shine right now,
Love will conquer, someway somehow.

HURT

the hurt and the torment,
the words and the lies,
the truth and the honesty?
why oh why.

single looks,
explain you,
single wonders,
hurt me.

the steps of boardwalk city

People are like cities
They’re beautiful at first
Cities are like people
They hold on to the worst
People are you and I 
We mirror most of the hurt

I don’t believe in quarters 
Pleasing wishing wells or 
That waterfalls’ never break flow
Children of ruins and run
With no place to go

I miss the things 
That I have forgotten
I can honestly say the most 
For the people who were brought to me 

And you should know
Bed time stories were nothing more than lies
And now you know
Why beggars and grown men with no homes 
Have the best stories to tell

People are like cities
They’re left in ruins 
Cities are like people 
They’re broken in places
I can honestly say the most 
For the people who were brought to me 

Catherine’s in tears 
But she lust for bachelors and ball room curtains
Rebecca moans 
But there no rose petals in this empty city 
Her mirror smiles and tells her she’s un-pretty
Sons of train stops
Children of rain drops 
Orphans of this boardwalk city
Words cannot heal your wounds 
But if helps your more than lovely

“Excerpts from a stranger’s journal”

Birthday Rose

Introduction: A mother is such a wonderful poetry...She is the compass and blessing for her children and no matter what, in our hearts - she's the rose that never dies.


The moment I first opened my eyes, I saw your glowing face in shine You took me in your graceful arms, And poured my life in peaceful charm You sacrificed more than I can count, To raise me and strengthen my ground Every time you heard me scream, You took off from your every meal You fulfilled all my needs and dreams, You mean the world and more to me A teacher, a playmate, An answer, a guide of fate You reach out and pull me back, Whenever I get lost off track You love me like no other, Words just simply can’t explain, you are the best mother With you I never pretend, by your values I transcend You help me get my courage tight, You aid me to my wisdom right You are my loving mother, Someone I have to share my thoughts Always you know, always you care, Always you feel, always you heal Your tender smile lights up my life, From doubts that keep me captive at night Forever in my heart, you reside You care so much and feel so deep, You’re just everything I need I’m above grateful to have you in my life, As every time I think of you, I always feel revived.

Willing to die

These people I save
Day and day
They need my aid
They never keep the peace
War, famine and struggle
The only three things they know

Using greed and power
to ramble through life
Shrouding themselves
in false security
and meaningless lies

Denying even to themselves
That they are the reason for things
The reason they whimper and cry
Self genocide
Willing to die

Martyrs for nothing
People always fight
Believing war is right
Indomitable nations
Battle against one another
Waging campaigns of death
to destroy their own people

Race is nothing
When all is the same
Centiant force
Concious spirit
Waits beneath your mind
Power of unbelievable kind

Once you free yourself
War is not the answer
You see your reason for living
You see what it means to be fre

I Finally Understand Why You Can't Go Home Again

The sun never shines here in south town
It’s only covered up
by a dust of regrets and letdowns
that i can never come clean of

the shadows dance in the alleyways
the darkness plays in the sun
the children all searching to find a way
for these shades of gray to be fun

we've been living on the wrong side of town
for way, way to long
we are lost when we wake up
still lost when we lay down
and i think it's time we find our way out

lately I’ve begun to notice
things haven’t changed at all
they are all the same
as they were when I was small

maybe my eyes have changed
maybe my life is stained
maybe I can’t understand
why the colors drain and the sun dims

maybe we've been living on the wrong side of town
for way, way to long
we are lost when we wake up
still lost when we lay down
and i think it's time we find our way out

Play to Lose

My life was normal before you came along
Now that I'm with you it seems all wrong
They even told me that you would be bad news
What can I say, maybe I play to lose

You told me one thing but you meant another
Was that the last lie? Are you really sure?
My gut was right but now my heart is struck
I guess meeting you was just bad luck

Your family loves me and your baby doesn't care
You keep me on the outs, I don't think it's fair
Crawling back to ex's is your normal routine
I ask you how you are and you tell me where you've been

You treat me bad but I come back for more
Maybe I'm foolish, maybe you're a whore
It never mattered, your past is what I mean
I thought maybe you'd like the chance to start clean

Don't talk to me, don't even say a word
I've had enough of this, lies are all I've heard
Maybe someday you'll realize your err
When I'm living happy without a care

Last Dance

When I was born into this world
I never knew about the Trinity
as I grew into a little girl 
I found that His name is Holy
as A teen I always wondered
does the Lord think of me
so I turned to the Holy Bible
learned He has room there for me

Jesus, when I grow older
I will dance the step..to Your harmony
Jesus, when I pass over
will You save..the last dance for me

Now that Im much wiser
I can sure plainly see
Jesus you gave me all Your love
I hear what You are saying to me
the world is aging and so am I
Glorious is my King
He is my foundation,my salvation
He forever lives in me

Jesus, as I grow older
I will dance the steps..to Your harmony
Jesus, when I pass over
willYou save..the last dance for me

Now that Im no longer
I still dance to His harmony
yes now,i have passed over
Jesus saved that dance for me
the train of His robe fills the temple
how glorious it is to be
with the Lord of Lords the King of Kings
and He is dancing with me

Jesus, as I grow older
I will dance the steps..to Your harmony
Jesus, when I pass over
will You save...
I hope You save...
I pray You save...the last dance for me.

Secrets

And I wonder how your day’s been
And if you miss me anymore
It’s too late to cease your crying
No more wonders in this world 

And there are times I’d rather hold you
But you’re wishing me away
And who’s to say I’d never scold you
But you’re loving me anyway

And we only look to see you smiling
So stranded from our distance
And you shrug them from your vision
Seems no one knows that you are missing

And we wrap our arms around you
But you’re hidden anyways
They hold your cries in whispers
No one knows what lies they say

they tear you down so kindly
the world wouldn't wait on them
do you miss your tears to often
there's nothing more that i can say

your father loves you dearly
your mother says so clearly
i did all i could to sooth you
no one dares to take your hand

Foullen -Part One-

A mansion sitting upon a hill
Two men walking apart from eachother
One is part human the other is creature
Kaz, Half elf and half human
He walks slowly in the woods 
Kicking stones as he walks
His hands gripping the inside of his pockets
He feels something coming

Walking slowly behind him
Sniffing his scent
Foullen,  a full blooded vampire
Pale skin, blue eyes that sparkle when his black long hair falls upon his face
He wraps his arm around Kaz's waist 
Pulling him backwards
He places his lips unto Kaz's neck
Sinking his fangs into him
Kaz trying to get away
Foullen holds him down

Once he is done feeding 
He pushes the human to the ground
Only sniffing his human scent not even knowing about his elf half
He runs off leaving Kaz in pain on the ground

He would smirk looking back as he runs
Running into the mansion
Slamming the door behind him
He would say hello to his mother
And sit perfectly in his chair
Wipping the blood from his teeth

A few hours later 
A man knocks at the door
Foullen would answer smelling a familiar scent
He lets him in seeing the wound on this mans neck

He would softly say hello holding his hand out and smirks at Kaz
"Hello Kaz" He would say
Kaz looks up at him "you know who i am?"
Foullen would speak "Yea i did drink your blood after all, you have been a target for some time, i always had an eye on you... you always seemed special-
Kaz looks up at him confused "me?"

Many days would pass and many conversations were held between Foullen and Kaz
But many do not know what was said all that was heard was Foullen and Kaz got close and became friends and over several years another journey between them would soon begin 

(stay tuned for part two)

Under The Tangerine Sky

life is full of choices and chances single’s dances and double romances life moves on while stories are told time can’t be bought, it’s only sold there’s a light that dims each passing day of Sons and Daughters lost along the way Somewhere under the Tangerine Sky it's near impossible to read his face never met the man he tries to replace too high the gamble too high is the cost another year taken and another year lost life moves on while the stories turn gray of Sons and daughters lost along the way Somewhere under the Tangerine Sky He’s a ghost from the coast under the hot desert sun the mercury rises and the air is dry bye and bye Somewhere under the Tangerine sky A faded shadow standing in the wind no longer the man he had once been wandering lost and all alone, the price he pays for all the wrong More and more memories fade away of sons and daughters lost along the way Somewhere under the tangerine sky He's a ghost from the coast under the hot desert sun the mercury rises and the air is dry bye and bye Somewhere Under the Tangerine Sky

Just Love and Peace

Simple as that, just love and peace.
Writing for all who need a release. 
Writing for those who can't seem to find 
A poem that compliments days and nightime.

Dream time comes I wake but don't write.
No need to bother, be silly laugh light.
I plea for comedic, no drama because, 
it makes things pecuilar and creates too much buzz.
So the lesson plan today is simply just laugh.
Just peace and love, you hold the bat.

What it Seems; Seams Unraveled

I’m finally growing up; I realize
Real eyes can recognize these real lies

Lies he, in a landscape barren
Bearin’ a false teachin’ he believed in.
 
Deceived by these elders, he felt like the bait
Bate the result as they betray the whole class of '08
Ate the lessons; trusted; left awed
Odd how you long to go back, sidestep the façade.

Fraud; caused his mind to alter
Altar of this education abandoned; falter.

Faltered, for as he appraised
Praised then, all of the knowledge he gained.

Drained; an opinion he lacks
Lax for years but now he’s on track
Track wisdom; has a mental axe
Acts as a way to crash walls, fight back.

Knack for writing, it became peace
Piece of heart in each written-release
Release stress; negative cease
Sees in a new light, consciousness increased.

Impeach his old ways and his mind state
State his ideals through wordplay.

Sure cliché, but this is my chance
Chants that make a difference from my stance.

Eternal Devourer

I will peal the flesh from your face
Chew upon the muscle beneath skin
Your final resting place

Blood rite
Endless night
This ritual is mine
Eating flesh so divine

Surviving off flesh
The butchery continues
Maniacal lust
for the flesh of man
Meat so tender
and meat so tough
I ingest it all

Eternal devourer
of things still writhing
Human flesh furthering my life
I will live forever

I consume all meat
Muscle and skin
Organs, brains
The most tasteful parts
Sustanence through cannibalism
Flesh is the provider
I will live forever

On this road again, wasting time.

                                                                                                       
So good to see you once again. 
We could sit and talk about it
Forever.
Or continue on with the journey 
Down this road of entity. 
It’s a long way 
Before we get there.
Many bridges we will ravage,
Before we come home. 
We’ll signify on the way,
There is so much ahead of us
I don‘t want to miss. 

Look at those meager souls
Out there in the distance, 
Bedeviled. 
They seem so vacant. 
Can’t they discern?
Through his eyes they will see tranquility.
To conceive a path on the way.
A passage to convey with immunity
On their way home.
Everyone will want to see.
Surely this, they will miss.

As i turn from the distance
To see you beside me,
My focus seized by a reflection.
The shine of deity 
within your eyes.
Darkness has receded,
Skies filled luminous red and purple. 
The end of the road is sublime,
Over those gates peer into ecstasy.
Hope to identify her facade.
Cant wait to meet him.
My own sea of rebuttal 
Needs to be set in place.

Drifted soul in the shadows
Squint toward divinity.
This road is far too long
To be stricken with reason.
He doesn’t believe you can’t see.
Surely this, you will miss.

First Love

I met this girl when I was 14
Prettiest thing I'd ever seen
We met in a field, she asked me to dance
Her green dress and perfume put me in a trance
She told me she loved me
She told me she cared
She told me we'd always be
Together, she sweared
Late one night we went for a walk
I felt a little tired so we stopped and talked
I kissed her on the neck and whispered in her ear
"I'm your vision and you're my seer."

I love her
I'm sure

Loved this girl from when we first met
Our hearts were pumpin', our minds were set
We'd be happy forever, she'd never go
We were actors and life was just a show
I told her I'd love her
I told her I'd care
She was my cure
That I wanted to share
Everybody loved her, but she loved me the most
Everyday she was my guest and I was her host
But one night I woke up from my dream and I found
That my girl had left without a word, without a sound

I miss her
I'm sure

I searched and searched, but to no avail
She didn't leave me nothin', not even a trail
I think they took her away, we had too much fun
It was the man who makes the rules, the man with a gun
I missed her dear
Oh, I missed her so
This was my fear
That she would go
So I went for a walk, without my girl it was weird
But then I started thinkin', my mind had cleared
This girl clouded my mind from when we first met
I didn't need her love, my mind was set

I'm alright without her
I'm pretty sure

I haven't seen her since that dark starry night
I don't know why I feel this way, it just feels right
I think about her from time to time
Too bad lovin' my girl was a crime
I wonder if I'll ever see her again
I think I'll just wait 'till then

Maybe one last ride wouldn't hurt

To my First Born

To my first born we are  so proud of you
you were a good boy but a bit ornery too
a shy little lad and as cute as could be
your eyes they were as blue as the sea
you and your brother and sisters would play
had a good time while your dad was away
when your dad got home we'd all wait to see 
was he going to be sober or  drunk as could be
he always picked on you and made you so sad
you said when I grow up I won't be like my dad
we made a decision we had to find a new home
life would be better if you kids and I lived alone
but when you were eighteen your vow didn't last
you followed you dad down that old alcohol path
and for many long years on that road you did stay
and for all of those years on my knees I did pray
I would say son one day you're going to be free
and what a great witness to others you going to be
 three years ago you walked through the door
and said mom I'm not going to drink any more
and now you go to AA and meet with your friends
and now we don't  worry  where you have been
just a short time later you met the love of your life
and in just a few weeks you made her your wife
February 21  2007 you two  had a beautiful baby girl
Melissa Dawn came in and brightened our world
 we all see a miracle when we look into your face
we thank our heavenly Father for keeping you safe
God is so faithful  when we  trust him with our heart 
and Billy Ray  thank you so much for doing your part
words can't say just how much we love you

A FORBIDDEN THOUGHT

Unconvincing words
is what I hear...
and need, not want
keeps bursting out
of your pathetic thoughts;
all is gone so sore!

A fobidden thought,
not spoken for your own sake,
what you hide is plain and clear;
when that voice starts shaking,
and those eyes start rolling:
I lose faith in everything you say,
look at me, and be as true as yesterday!
Have I ever kept a secret, or been insincere?
Sympathy wouldn't be in me today,
unless you revealed that forbidden thought!

Secrets can cause doubts,
enought to destroy trust and confidence;
are you still hanging on pretense?
Go beyond the storm and foresee
things that can't  ever been seen;
put it all to rest ...it's your last chance!    

A forbidden thought 
locked inside so shamefully
is another reason to fear truth;
being so untrue and silent
doesn't make easier for me
to forgive you like I would like toI 
A forbidden thought
lingering on unspoken lips
makes me sad and wonder why
it seems hard to face
the consequence of a lie...
when all you have to do is apologize!

A forbdden thought so unspoken,
never sheds light on anything too foregone;
something lost to time that only  love can
bring back from its deep darkness!
A forbidden thought follows a gloomy dawn,
afraid that the silence will find a voice!

unfortunately known

Days go by
Silence wares
You walked away
I don’t know who you are

Lie your breath
Fingers through your hair
Songs you knew you’d sing
Only I truly know what you mean

Growing up they held your hopes
Hid your dreams
Loved you such
You wrote them all away
No one knows it’s us

Smiles are tattoos your mirror hides
I held you cure from saddened eyes
I took a wishful truth
And wiped away your cries

You change your status
Ruminants of what happened
Ain’t it funny
How those you love disappear

They held you close
You kept your church
I’m lost in you 
And now you’re hurt
No one knows we’re us

"I wonder where you are
I don’t know what else to do
I worry that you love me still
I feel the same
But I don’t need to sing"

My Heart

I can't find the words to console you
the right lyrics to take over and control you
but theres nothing that we can do
the good times will come and the bad times will pass
We're running in a race and were going way to fast
I don't want to let you in for the fear that you may win
My heart...............

Oh when my camera takes a snapshot
smile with every miniscule amount of happiness that I've got
Feet in the sand, walking hand in hand
dancing to the band I don't want to go on because at the crack of dawn
you may break
my heart.........

As the rain bombards my hair
wetness everywhere shake it out its okay
you'll keep me dry if I stay but if I stay
the fear is near that I may give you
My heart...............

second-hand lives

Ask for help
I’m right here now
Hold your breath
Wither on
No place to run to 
No place to go
This place 
Your home

Ask for help
I’m right here now
Take your step
I won’t hold you down
Hoard your breath
Wither on
This place 
Is your home

Beneath the moon
We hid till noon
Deeply felt
I’m outside of you
Grace your path
It’s all we have 
Where wonders fade
We will go 

Your air
Is built 
Of broken
Breaths
Your ground
Is soft 
No place 
To step

No bridges
Spare 
No thoughts
Too rare
When 
No memories 
Flare 

You asked for help 
I’m right here now
Hoard your breath
I won’t hold you down
Wither on 
This place 
Is your home

The Book of You

I see you, more than you understand
Your heart, your soul, its like the perfect book

Your heart it beats and yet you do not live
Why do you resign yourself to such a fate,
A fate, an attempt at life that is such a waste

I know in your heart you wish things where different
Wish the past had not happened, 
Wished that your heart did not ache so much

This wish is futile, to wish your heart away is to hide
Do not hide from what enriches your life
You will forever remember this
Learn from these pages in your book 

Yet that crippling pain is likely the purest emotion you have felt
I am here staring into you, reading you

I see your soul for what it is,
It is struggling to restore your shattered heart
Your greatest weakness is your fear

You fear for what can be, for the next pain
So many times you have been shattered
Many times broken and defeated

But you must learn to fight back
Learning that pain is only the beginning is the only way

Without this I doubt your heart or your soul will survive
Survive the apocalypse of your life, fate has not ended it
This is after all just the beginning of your future

I beg you to continue your life,
I yearn to read into your heart, mind and soul more

Please forgive my selfishness but I need you to continue
The waste of your heart is too much
The waste of a soul like yours is a shame

I will pass you the string for which to sew your heart
I will pass you each piece, each shard of your soul
Allow yourself time to heal,
The process is only as slow as you make it

Demand your heart to listen to your mind
Falling back into the pit of despair is truly mad
If you allow yourself to fall within its inky depths
Then forever will its dark tentacles enwrap your heart

You have felt the pain now, felt it keenly
Do not fall into vengeance, it is seductive, it is sweet
But it is a short reprieve from the darkness

Take heart, the good die young is what we're told
The better die last.
The best live eternal in their love, for true love is eternal
That love will forever last in another’s hear.

Do not give in to pain,
Do not give in to hate,
Give in to your recovery.

My heart Misses You...*

The day I first met you,
  I didn’t think I’d be standing here,
     Standing here saying “I Love You”.
I thought we’d always just be friends,
  That was until now; until the very end.
But I think it’s a little too late,
  ‘Cause something went wrong and we had to separate.

But I want you to know,
  That I’ll always love you so.
My feelings for you, 
  Will stay meaningful and true.
‘Cause I never really knew,
  how much I’d end up loving you.
And you mean so much to me,
  That I hope someday, together again, we would be.

 But my heart’s already broken to pieces,
  And I’m trying to figure out what most it misses.
Even though,
  I probably already know.

You made such an act when you were around me,
  So everything that happened, I’d believe.
And I’m sick and tired of playing these games;
  There are too many things for me to think about to name.

I think I need a little time and space to be alone,
  But hopefully it won’t be too long.
‘Cause all I really want is to be with you,
  Even though it may not soon be true.
I just thought I’d let you know.

I care for you,
  Whether you think it’s a lie or the truth.
I’d never want a misfortune to come your way,
  I just pray you’re safe each and every day.
‘Cause you’ve got me worrying about you so much…

There are those moments that pass by,
  And the ones when you’re in my thoughts, 
     All I want to do is cry, all I want to do is cry.

 But my heart’s already broken to pieces,
  And I’m trying to figure out what most it misses.
Even though,
  I probably already know.
Even though,
  I probably already know.


…My heart misses you…







*This is a song I wrote. Hope you like it.

Memory

Hey. How's it going, with your life?
I know mine just keeps on falling apart.
What do I see? Can it be?! Oh, wait who are you again?
My memory has faded away. 
My eyes can't see anything clearly 'cause of this fog inside my head.
Why can't I just move along? Is it because of your smile, your hair, or the way you dance?
I can't tell anymore!

Hey, wait a second! You look like that girl from.... no forget it I forgot. Don't stare
I've only known you for seven seconds!
But for some reason I feel a deep warmth inside.
Can it be that I've seen you before in my life? ...No, it can't be!
What's going on in my life? I just can't seem to get on the right track.
Everyday is another mistake, I just wanna escape this world & manipulate all those around me.
I feel like a freak,now I know how Jason or Freddy must have felt.

RETREAT

Mother! Only a few, few days remain.
Worry not, I will return, return again
Like birds that in their nests do enter
Tearing the torturous traps of hunter.

I know each night you make extra meal
And wait in slight hope that I will, will
Come to eat supper being too, too tired.
But I am here so far, far away, starved.

Mother! I, I too linger for your affection
On the riverbed where lies my skeleton.
My two bony hands still, still, still seek
Your sacred feet that appears now bleak.

I will not go away from you again, again.
When you would sit solitary in the Eden,
Don’t think I have given you a new bluff.
Turning, you’ll find my face with laugh.


(In memory of freedom fighters in 1971 war. Many of them never returned home)

all i can be

Outside 
My window pane
Rain falls 
Days Undo 
Time Itself

Sun light
Morning ends
Nights fall
Lastly 
I give
Into You

Ruminants 
I start to Forget them
Mirrors, Luggage 
I’m leaving without you
Time sees what we cannot 

My eyes lie open
Across your chest
with visions to blurry to see
Is this all that I can be
This illusion 
Is all that I can see
It’s All that I can’t be 

More than more 
I remain unchanged
And you dear 
Always stay the same
Downstairs
Too slowly 
I chase 
un-doubtly 

My emptiness
Has filled you  
Ghostly 
I step closer 
To what we shared

Sometimes 
The oceans 
And images
Call to me 
Winding into 
Treasures 
Hidden 
Beyond 
your eyelids

Secrets are so rare 
Behind my curtains 
I’m open to all things 
Until you sooth me
As your voice sings 
All that I can hear

As eyes lie open
Across your chest
a visions to blurry to see
Is this all that I can be
This illusion 
Is all that I can see
It’s All that I can’t be

EVERY LOVE IS VERY PRECIOUS TO ME

I express my true emotions without expecting returns;
I set no rules how friends and people should love me,
because every love is very precious to me!
 

Love me less, or love me more;
and joy would take me away to soar...
thanks for the thoughts, however big or small!
 

Any friend who gives out of genuine love,
shouldn't give it for only a day, but forevermore;
yes, every love is very precious to me!


Nobody could imagine what's the greatest love;
hear me pray joyfully amid the silent walls of a room... 
where all my prayers become flowers in bloom!


Who can doubt my kindness when friends turn to me? 
Everything that I posses, I will give away gladly...
to show them that every love is very precious to me!


Never judge me for taking my time to give it;
I am always ready to offer it and share it...
admitting that every love is very precious to me!   


I hope to live longer and happier years that God intended for my good;
I'm sure obedience to Him will greatly favor me...
and that He'll certainly approve that every love is very precious to me!

Being Free On CD

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

GOOD BYE SUMMER

GOOD BYE SUMMER




Good bye, summer, well, it's time to go,

Good bye, summer, well, it's time to go.

I hate to rush you, but you really must go

say Good bye, summer, good bye!


Well, it's the middle of September;

I’m just tired of you and your heat.

Oh, I hate to rush you, but you can’t

stay




Repeat Refrain


Now, autumn and winter,

Might hate it if you stay here too long,

One shake and we'll part, and you'd better 

get going, although you served a purpose.



Final Refrain:


Good bye, summer, well, it's time to go,

Good bye, summer, well, it's time to go.

I hate to rush you, but you  really must go

Good bye, summer, good bye!

Love/Life

You said you loved me,
You said you cared,
you said you'd always be  there.

But ever since the dreadful day,
You made it clear about what you had to say.
The words punched me in the gut and ripped out my heart,
When you said we could no longer be and we had to part.

Love is strange, love is hard;
But you didn't have to go and break my heart.
Love is cruel, love is mean;
But you didn't have to do what you did to me.

You used to say "I love you".
Did you lie to me or were you saying the truth?
You broke my heart into pieces;
Now I'm gonna be lost, thanks to this.
It's a situation out of control,
But I have to do this on my own.

The healing will take quite a while.
It'll be a long time before I smile.

Love is strange, love is hard;
But you didn't have to go and break my heart.
Love is cruel, love is mean;
But you didn't have to do what you did to me.

Because I'm sick and tired of being lied to.
I can't handle it, especially by you.
I thought there was, between you and me, some kind of trust;
So I took my heart off the shelf and wiped off the dust.
But now I know it was a mistake,
'Cause I'm suffering with so much heartache.

Love is strange, love is hard;
But you didn't have to go and break my heart.
Love is cruel, love is mean;
But you didn't have to do what you did to me.

You made promises to me that you couldn't keep,
And ever since then, I'd hide so I could weep.
I cared about you so much;
I'd do anything to feel your touch,
'Cause you would hold me in your arms;
You'd protect me from any kind of harm.
But unfortunately,
That will never again be.
And unfortunately,
I'll be full of nothing but misery,
'Cause,

Love is strange, love is hard;
But you didn't have to go and break my heart.
Love is cruel, love is mean;
But you didn't have to do what you did to me.

Life is strange, life is hard;
But you didn't have to go and break my heart.
Life is cruel, life is mean;
But you didn't have to do what you did to me.

Falling

You're the one that said every thing will be okay.
You're the one that said nothing can go wrong.
You're the one that said nothing can befall me. 
But now I need you all I see is that you're gone.

And I'm falling, I'm falling
Back into my pit of darkest days. 
And I need you, I need you 
I see that now more than before.
Please come save me, come save me
I'm so sorry for my doubting ways.
And I'm falling, I'm falling
Back into your loving embrace.

You're the one that promised to walk always with me.
You're the one that promised to keep me standing tall.
You're the one that promised your footsteps will not fade.
But now I need you I don't see them there at all.


And I'm falling, I'm falling
Back into my pit of darkest days. 
And I need you, I need you 
I see that now more than before.
Please come save me, come save me
I'm so sorry for my doubting ways.
And I'm falling, I'm falling
Back into your loving embrace.

I'm the one who should know by now.
I'm the one who turns away.
I'm the one whose foosteps fade.
As you carry me through my darkest days.

You raise me up, raise me up
To stand eteranal at you're right hand.
And call to me, call to me
When I am lost and melancholy.
You bless me now, bless me now
With gifts and love beyond compare. 
You raise me up, raise me up
Beyond what the world could ever make me.

Thank You.

Thank you, my Lord, for everything,
For the tide on the shore 
And the wind as it sings  in my ear,
Washing your Grace over me.

Thank you, my Lord, I say it again.
For the sun, moon and stars, 
And the earth I am walking on.
All created by your loving hand.

Father! Creater Heavens.
I bow down.
Humbled by your Grace.
Your son died for me,
Awash in squalid sin.
From a Cross he hung
As the scoffers sung.
"Forgive them!" was his final breath.
Awesome was his lowly death.

Thank you, my Lord, for everyone.
For the plans you have for them
And those that are done.
Oh Lord! Please guide me!

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU

Take a trip with me
Out to the bloody sea
View sin and misery
Then dive right in and take a swim
Inside the den of iniquity
Experience your fears
And shed a couple tears
Get tortured by your peers
Play show and tell with the wishing well
While you burn in hell for a thousand years

When you set a goal
You will pay a toll
And fall into a hole
You scream and shout, but you can’t get out
And you start to doubt your immortal soul
The thoughts inside your brain
They cause internal pain
They leave a mental stain
The darkening skies and your blood-shot eyes
Make you realize that you’ve gone insane

Whether you are good or bad it doesn’t matter at all
You’ve just got to realize you’re headed for a fall
For all your greed and selfishness you’re in for a surprise
Enjoy it while you’re here---because you can’t take it with you

A Diamond for Mom on Mother's Day

How many springs that bloomed and withered like flowers?
How many winters that came and melted in front of me?
How many summers that burnt my skin and dried the land?
How many autumns had covered the front door with leaves 
that crackle, when you stepped-on, rushing to kiss me?

I’m a grown man 
now, early-forties. Yet, 

I still remember well what I wore on my first day of school;
It was not signature, nor a famous Armani brand; but 
a hand made barong, sewn to fit me.
You slaved yourself over it, so that neighbors 
won’t tease me, half-naked going to school.

I also remember when I held your worn hand in mine 
to compliment you; and you looked straight into my eyes, 
bluish---like the color of the sky over us. You smiled.
The warmth of your hands still lingers on my body,
mingles with the sweat of your blood that runs thru my veins. 
At that moment of time I knew, my life’s filled with love.

To you, my beloved Mom
Happy Mother’s Day! 

Here, I brought a basket of apples, your favorite 
which I picked from our grove---at the back garden.
Let me cut this red one, for you, and I’ll show… 
the star---the symbol of my past and my future. A great star. 
Mom, only these I’ve for you, fruits of my hands, not diamond.

My precious son, red or green apple, Californian or not, is fine
with me. And, I don’t need diamond, for I already have one 
since nineteen hundred and sixty-seven, the year when I saw 
the cockcrow and dusk, finally, met that caught me, by surprise.

Involuntary Release

Remember those days?
When you though I’d let go
Of the love that I had found
In you, I believed in myself;
The dreams that made me smile
Continue to befall upon my conscience.

Then, suddenly, we were lost;
No map for the memories
We kept for each other;
It is gone but
Why does forever last so long?
It doesn't seem to exist anymore.

A sight not to be seen
By sore hearts that silently
Cry in the night;
Remember those days
When we used to act 
The pages of our lives?
So pure in our thoughts
But never perfect.

So when can we see
The broken shards fly
Out of existence, once more;
It used to be so easy
Leaving the bygones in refuge;
The logics are befuddled by
The wondering mind working overtime
To save the strays of justice.

What momentary gesture 
Lurks behind those orbs of emotion?
Is it too hard to ask
To contain the rabid fear
Maddening the black lies, forlorn;
Throw away the forsaken gratitude
Of a happy life now morbid.

Here, take it back;
No more, no lack
Of intimacy shall cut
Through the skin sewn shut.
You were a fever
Destined to haunt forever
The tidings of my heart.
Lest I tear you apart,
I will remain
Bound by your chain,
Condemned by the both of us.

Blaze the Skies

This journey of my dreams is everything I’ve waited for
It’s all wrapped up with strings
With sweat and tears, with joy and pain
Through hills and valleys I have come
A thousand dreams I dared to dream
I stand here in this time and place
Where stars are born to blaze the skies

Blaze the skies with your life
We live each day and weave our dreams
Each life is a song that must be sung
As stars are born to blaze the skies

When I recall the years, the many fears, the hidden tears
The solid walls unseen 
The rocky road, the times I fell
The yearning grew, the struggles too
A million stars have shone their lights
Along the way to where I am
Where stars are born to blaze the skies

Blaze the skies with your life
We live each day and weave our dreams
Each life is a song that must be sung
As stars are born to blaze the skies

I’ll soar with touching songs that warm the heart that feed the soul
To heights beyond the stars, 
And light the path for all who dream
Who know the laughter and the pain
To give each song its wings to fly
To a higher place in the universe
Where stars are born to blaze the skies

VERSES VIBRANT WITH LIFE

Read me verses
vibrant with life,
not sad epitaphs;
paint me my portrait
with a lustrous light...
be a Cavaraggio, or Rembrandt,
and my replicas sell in the market
for a price that suits any wallet.


I was given a name,
and with gilt I embellished it;
gladsome to glitter and giggle,
blooming as a rose bud caressed
by the wind's soft breath;
and its seed will be transported 
far-away, to germinate by a godly temple,
and there I will meet a favorable, clement fate. 


A tombstone is the place
for the soul's eternal rest,
my bones will lie within it...these brittle bones
once covered by flesh, but its spirit
will depart to ascend from the realm of mortals;
and sleep it will...until a mighty voice will awaken it,
there with the angels of Paradise I will write my praises,
and seeing the sorrow of the living, I will act upon their behalf.


Read me verses
vibrant with life;
epistles that the New Testament's
devoted scribes wrote.
Sing me odes of the glory to come, put aside
the longest elegy, don't trifle
with my final wish, everything else is trivial;
look into the Heavens, I will smile...

To keep the sun to our backs. (This epidemic is epic!)

I can finally believe that the sun shines beyond those clouds
To signal the end of the shade 
Uncovering the world’s insecurity’s

If we can find solace in somebody we’ve never touched
Their words enough to give us hope
In a hopeless race
The means to turn the page
And start the next chapter of the book
To move on holding hands

Marching as one into the sunset
Into the title waves
Into the hurricane
Making the best of every moment
Dancing in the wind and rain

To move on hand in hand

King Krimp

Set forth a task at hand
Meant for no one to understand
Dominate this God forsaken place
Yield the power of steel
-- Wield the master plan --
I'll be damned
If you take this land
From within my grasp
-- You pathetic little man --

..Divide and conquer...
One by one
Infiltrate the numbers
Lambs to the slaughter
Self proclaimed
To wear the crown of endowment
I shall have
What is mine to have
By my command
-- Or by my own hand! --

From out of the ruins
A natural born ruler
..No longer subdued...
Slay the bastards
That held me captive
Bonds are broken
And I'm attacking

A merciless heart
For what you made me start
I will kill you all
That played a part 
Others will surrender unto me
(Bend at the knee)
-- Beg for a life --
 For an act of mercy 

What am I?
Something undefined
But I will cripple your bones
And Krimp your mind
Who am I?
You will recognize
Your master & commander
When I stand before your eyes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
*[chorus]*
Follow me
Or my sword will be
The last thing that you'll ever see
Abide my rule
Or I will run you through
Left for the wolves
To feast on flesh & bone
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

You people can't see
My ghost is really me
Manifested into an entity
I have come to reap the harvest before me
Then till the earth
Before it’s re-birth
Of a prosperous seed
That re-kindles the flame in humanity
Ignite the spark
Of what will be
For I am not alone
I come written out of stone
Out of ancient days untold
  Memories of a life 
A midnight dream for most
Suppress your foe
To express your woe
Such a miserable life
The life of a man
-- In all of his disgustingness –

-- Boz

Look To Your Queen Beatlemania And Your Bird Can Sing

You've got everything
Money and bling, king
But you don't own me
But you don't understand me
Don't understand me

You say that you are great
Have visited many states, king
But you don't love me
You don't love me

When your money and bling
Starts to wear you down, king
Look to your special queen
She'll be your crown
Be your crown

When your money is rusted
And strength gone
Look to your special queen
She'll be your crown
She'll be your crown
Be your crown

When you've tried everything 
Money, cars , and planes
And your queen is here
She'll be your crown

I'M LOUDLY SINGING FOR JESUS...MY REDEEMER!

Everyone is with someone else they can't stay apart,
and this sadness shouldn't be mine today or ever...
because His birth makes light much brighter
in this lonely soul searching for comfort,
and that's why I'm loudly singing for Jesus:  my Redeemer!


What I feel comes from a heart that desperately 
desires its tears to erase what has been its yesterday,
and loudly singing for Jesus:  my Redeemer does me good;
praising His coming and proclaiming Him my Lord!


Nobody more than I...has the urge to be consoled,
when arms don't open to welcome me inside;
and His mighty arms, although trembling and small,
open up in loving gesture to greet my call!   


Come Jesus, friend of gentle hearts and kind souls,
spend Your day telling me what is in store for me;
how Heaven echoes of the angelic, eternal voices...
unlikely the earth that waits for a Savior to end its misery! 


Without instrument, music sheets, or choir on a snowy day: 
I'm loudly singing for Jesus...my Redeemer in the simplest way,
and my gladness is expressed in every verse of my song;
oh, how I'd like to thrill baby Jesus with the words I sing! 
    

I'm loudly singing for Jesus...my Redeemer,   
as I shiver under the cold sky of December!

Legions

Legions

She said daddy how long is forever
I said, I don't know, 'bout five or ten years
how can two people stay together
in this world full of pain and fears

she said daddy when I get older
will you help me find a man to take my hand
I said if we all survive
I'll surely do the best that I can

then she cried
she said daddy I don't wanna die

(solo)

child this world is ruled by the devil's wealthy
who's main concern is their pride and his money
they rule this world without compassion or mercy
and Mammon's damned have to live on his land
I do believe that love is coming
until then we have to do the best that we can

idolize the rich and you get what you get 
better to build the kingdom of God at hand
so lay the cornerstone of love in your heart
child can you understand
that his name is love
and he teaches us to repent of our sins

this world is a battle ground for angels and devils
and a proving ground for all of God's children
and I know that the angels are few
but it doesn't take but one or two
to bring down legions

ballad of a wintered songster

Brandy and Crème soda 
Autumn summons us 
Shoulder to shoulder
We know not
If we’re getting older
We are self confident soldiers
I give you the best 
Of my brandy and Crème soda

March
Early and on we shall
Through these days of despair
Autumn prevails
Ways to soften
Whom could offer such a touch
A warm letter in the mail
Growing adolescents 
A young man
The consequences  that follow
A growing male
The turmoil that soothes us 
Is growing ale
The spice that tips ginger
Snaps a small town singer
“I love you”
It’s going to be a long winter
Shall we withstand 
This duration as centered
Look to no one 
For flaws 
seem to dissolve our mentors
Passion is Rum
Whiskey endures 
cold nights and un-sober palms
A rapist telling me
“I love your mom”
A young harlet calling 
“dear love come home”
A shelter 
From where doubt comes
The city’s filth 
Why it loves only my lungs
I’m good, I’m fine
Expressions in a glass of wine
Through these words 
A strangers poetry
You and I 
have become intertwined
I’m lost, I’m alone
I feel as though
I’ve become undone
Run, run, away and fast
On to no where, as orphans 
We were found at last

WHY BE LESS BEAUTIFUL AND DESIRABLE?

Before flowers and hugs made you happy,
and every evening you waited for my arrival,
and lovingly asked me, " How was your day, darling? "



Your old age age doesn't have those thrills anymore as when life was yours;
today, vanished is that radiant face: now, it only shows ugly spots and wrinkles...
a curse of the flesh, and no tenderness can console you for that tragic loss!
   


Why be less beautiful and desirable?
no woman ever loses her unique beauty, it is alive in her admirer's memory;   
it's in the tender words she speaks to her captured man, who changed her destiny!



Sweetheart, accept my yellow roses with the same joy you demonstrated yesterday;
never doubt my faithfulness, and whisper to yourself, " He loves me not! "
Try to smile...and instantly you will look much younger than you ever felt! 
  


Why be less beautiful and desirable?
We sealed our fate with the oath of fidelity, giving life to a promise never to be broken;
our sky was of the deepest blue and no other dream ever compared to that one!

Dock Of The Bay

Back in the summer of 69
                            I remember sitting on the dock of the bay
                                     watching the boys of summer
                                   build their love shacks love shacks
                                    girls were playing twister and
                                   sipping on pina coladas all day
                                     feeling kind of groovy  groovy
                                    I couldn't get much higher higher

                                           from the dock of the bay
                                   





Just Something I was working on

Hate to see the summer fun end

Get What I Deserve

Things you wish you could've said 
Things that never left your head
Things you did say that won't leave you till the day you die
People that you love
May say that sorry isn't enough this time
What are you supposed to do
When everyone that's always loved you
Is gone, is gone?

Chorus
Here comes the pain
Here comes the hurt
Here comes everything that I deserve
For destroying what was left of me
Here come my tears 
Here come my cries as I watch life pass me by
Without even saying goodbye
I get what I deserve

Stupidity is an evil disease
All alone
No one left to please
I want to scream
Not sure I know how
To live, what does it really mean?

Repeat Chorus

Here I am
Lying on the floor
Looking for the answer 
Who knows?
Might be just outside that door
You know, I never meant to hurt you
I'm so confused

Repeat Chorus

Here comes the pain
here comes the hurt
Here comes everything that I deserve
For destroying what was left of me
The passing years
The good old times
I let life pass me by
Don't know how to say goodbye
I guess I got what I deserved.


I wrote this for anyone who's ever made a huge mistake and didn't now it until it was too late 
to fix it.  Enjoy.

13,39(In Reference To The Fort Hood Shootings)

First off, this is a poem about my feelings about the tragic even that took place in Fort Hood, 
Texas yesterday afternoon. Prepare yourselves. I was very angry at the time i wrote this. 
hope you enjoy regardless. 

13 dead. 39 wounded.
who knew the acts of one man could be so gruesome?
i'll never know what thoughts traced your mind.
as you pulled the trigger and affected so many lives.
what were you thinking? 
ending lives without even blinking.
mass chaos.
last night i couldn't even sleep.
i can only imagine how you made those families feel.
you are a coward.
and that's putting it nicely
you make me sick to my stomach.
are you breathing in regret? 
do you feel any remorse yet? 
i bet you don't feel a thing.
because if you would have thought twice you would have stopped this from happening.
you would have stopped yourself.
i guess you can blame this on your mental health.
just like everyone else.
the world is evil but for you i have zero respect. 
you can't blame this on anything.
because you yourself pulled the trigger to the handguns that called for the innocence's ending
i bet you'll never lose a second of sleep. 
you are weak. 
no pity for a coward. 
i hope you get what you deserve.
can't wait for karma to take it's course. 
get on your knees and say a prayer.
i hope it goes unanswered.

Late

Here in my driest days
I can’t complain
Holding on 
To a piece of home 

How late my brother sings

As I wash my face
I put my hands in place
Inside my window pane
A perfect picture plain

How late my mother sings

How I wonder when
If when, this season ends
As I sip from my coffee cup
This fragrance loses touch

How late my brother sings

Up and down 
These county roads
Snowflakes tease
My driest palms
Within your hands I place 
My purity as a man and race

how late my mother sings

"songs from insomnia"

My friend the enemy

My great escape has taken me captive the pleasure is lost replaced with regret
Lately my ego has been over active no small measure since i haven't lost it all yet
The risk is great the reward much better lately i tire and i don't feel i can endure
i tell my self your so damn clever Iam also a liar i only need just one cure

the back and forth the same situations same old tale it was only just a taste
the shame and all the accusations how Ive tried to fail and my existence is a waste
i understand the concept i know to play the game but presently I'm caught in the motion
preparing for the onset of the old familiar pain that unwanted torrent of emotion

If i succeed to come back down the weight lessens but the excuses are right at hand
always push my self around an ego bully sessions the things my darker side can demand
i see the obvious outcome i don't blink an eye i go until the motors seized
try to do a little less but then i wonder why at least this way one half of me is pleased

watch the world around me from distance place close at hand buried deep inside
once again it found me the beast is real persistent and he never gives to pride
my body a prison cell locking out the rain and light so it can devour the hole that's rotting
make the first incision a second wrapped in delight no other me no constant plotting

in the end i know it will be for not haven't learned lessons that were taught I'm the only 
person that i fought
i want to make it right gain a little ground and  some insight save a little strength for the last 
round of the fight
put it all aside seek out those who in which i could confide what could the other me do when 
it can no longer provide
starve out the traitor self serving dog offers no favor a greedy needy voice that keeps me 
awake my on self hater

this time i need to recover my mind is cracking and my sickly body always has the aches
don't want to suffer i know I'm found still lacking but i want to change for my own sake
when i leave behind this part of me instantly the years of hurt will just up and go away
it isn't so kind he will always be there whispers constantly put away color for the endless gray

If You Never Try

Sometimes everything is a lie
The way he touched you
Kissed you and ran his fingers in your hair
Sometimes your heart breaks 
It's all in despair

He walks away
You bite your lip to hold it back
Tears form in your eyes
Cloud your vision and you wonder why
Standing alone on the street in the rain
Wondering why they're all the same

They tell you what you want to hear
Get what they want and take it all back
You gave it your heart
From the very start
Just to see it spit back

Cry, and cry
You loose yourself in sadness
Try to find a reason why
Get hung up in the past
But not so fast

If you let yourself cry for too long
Your eyes will cloud
You won't see anything around
Your other half could be standing there
Arms open wide
But you will never find out
If you never try

THE GENTLE LOVER

I'm the gentle lover,
  I'm a real delight;
I play this game until it'll be over...
     again I lead.


   When I can't doubt you,
   when I face each truth,
   when I run into you;
   when she hides from you...
   when you look back.  


 Some things remain so unchanged,
        their beat is slow,
    if all emotions are not felt.


     I'm the gentle, lover...
        very lucky me;
     don't ask for a thing,
       when love is here.        
    
     I'm hooked on
    this long fixation;
  feeling strong inside...
    not thinking of you.
  

         I'm never
     happy, or complete;
I state my saddest feelings,
      I have to insist..

   
    I think of myself,
    I give for myself,
 should I make believe 
      I'm so sincere?
   You ought to know!


     I'm the gentle lover,
     selfish and untrue;
     always looking sad...
      when you refuse
        to lead me on.


    Holding close, sounds sweet;
         hugs are great...
yes, with one one thought I'd go back!


     I realize, I can't
    be who I was then;
    giving up chances...
    making sacrifices,
     dreaming of love;
    seeing happy faces  
 that had more than you needed,
     to be always loved...
     ............................
     ............................
 that had more than you needed,
     to be always loved.

Sunday Carolina

My life’s apart 
My toes I’d touch 
But I could do 
Without the rush 

Midnight calls 
Again Liquor’s saved my day 
I see you not 
I guess I’ve lost my way 

Morning comes 
My coffee’s stale 
Let us 
Check the mail 
The door bell rings 
T-shirt with no jeans 

No class today 
Wide awake 
And I might not 
Last the wait 

This evenings cloud 
Have shaken my doubts 
I wonder 
If I’ll ever make it out 

Home from work 
Dreary eyes 
I lost my paintbrush 
In my shirt 

I’ve spoken soft 
Worded cloth 
But my quill 
Has written dry 
And to my dreams 
My days 
Might not say goodnight 

Lost my wave 
Astray in change 
There’s no tempo in this trap 
I am in dire need of a nap

She doesn’t seem 
To want to be held 
She’s beginning to think 
I don’t appreciate 
The comfort she provides 
  
We’ve been at this for some time now 
You’ve been gone for some time now 
By the time you make it back 
To where I am 
You’ll be gone again 
  
I don’t seem 
To want to be held much 
You just can’t turn me off 
And turn me on 
Or turn me on just to turn me off 
  
I’m not angry 
I’m not that far from anything 
I may see you later, I may call 
And I just may not come back at all 
  
We’ve been at this for some time now 
You’ve been gone for some time now 
By the time you make it back 
To where I am 
You’ll be gone again 
  
I don’t think I’ve ever been held 
By someone and not something 
I’m not sure I’ve ever been forgiven by love 
I don’t know if I’ve been callused 
Or I just can’t really feel

Wondrous Night - Sung to Star of the County Down

The air was filled with sparks so bright;
Ash and fire abound.
The night was filled with fairy light;
and deep the drumming sounds.

Chorus
And all about the wondrous night,
in forms both large and small;
walked spirits old and mighty souls
to lend a charm to all.

The sky o'er head was filled with stars;
Haze filled fairy flight;
The treetops raked the regal tarp;
While didgeridoo's delight.

And all about the wondrous night,
in forms both large and small;
walked spirits old and mighty souls
to lend a charm to all.

A circle formed of swaying hips;
Brass bangles chimed the sound;
The voices, deep and high and shrill;
Bare feet stomped, the ground.

And all about the wondrous night;
Wide eyed I walked enthralled;
As through the rents in astral space;
I heard the lovers call.

Sing a long!

OH, MARIANNA GRAZIA!

Oh, Marianna Grazia...
was my friendly neighbor,
a lovely lady in her eighties!
She became a widow when her
husband died of a brain tumor,
he was a sailor of many oceans;
how evident was the sadness
of Marianna Grazia!


She had a Grand Piano, made of cherry oak,
not covered with a speck of dust, and smiling
she played an improvisation with style; 
and it depended on her mood! The rays of sunlight
entered diagonally and rested on it, while
her feeble fingers played the same, harmonic melody;
and her hubby liked to hear those notes enthusiastically...
that's how I remember Marianna Grazia at her best!


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
went to church every Sunday,
and passing by my gate, she always said
hello, and asked how things were going! 
She gave every kid on the block candy
and flowers she grew in the back-yard;
oh, I miss how you hummed that song... 
oh, Marianna Grazia!


Today I walked by her house,
the Venetian blinds were closed at noon,
I was overtaken by a sudden gloom;
her youngest daughter approached me
and mutterred very grieving words,
" My mom has passed away in a tragic way,
she slipped and fell, and hit the cement;
she passed out as blood gushed from her forehead."  


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
never will I have another conversation
about her experience in Normandy, 
and the stories of a nurse during World War II,
were as inspirational as her vocation!
Oh, Marianna Grazia...
look down below and wave gracefully;
life is not as everlasting as that love given by you,
oh, Marianna Grazia!

Siunu, Goddess of Hellfire

Deep down
Into the further pits of fire
She awaits

Fire
Flame
Desecration of skin
Deformed and rotted
Burn
Ignite
The world will be set ablaze

Hellfire Goddess Siunu
Shall see to it that all life dies
Withers away in the flame
As she spreads across the world

Flesh adorned with blood
Symbols of death
Icons of pain
She hungers for savagery
and acts of butchery
In love with her
till your very death
Her vicious beauty
Left you without breath

Infernal demoness of the undying flame
Forever she will burn in this world
Brilliant at a distance
She will get you in a trance
Up close
You have little chance of survival

She is the inferno
The storm of Hellfire itself
Rage driven
She will continue on killing
You'll never extinguish her flame
To this world
She has laid her claim

Black sand

When you find your early your already much to late all this time now you over compensate
A rush towards the front so we can crawl to the back always flinching from the timely attack
anticapation explodes towards the surface flooding out release its only purpose
Timely ruin erodes the  youthful heart corroding the edges lets it fall apart

age and wisdom go hand in hand the curse of life has only one demand
youth and vigor go hand in hand but at that point we dont even understand 
in the end we return to the land all these things we were crumbles away into black sand

A hard life takes a serious toll no one to help you madness takes control
lonely hearts lightens the soul to run the great race headlong towards the hole
some live life as a perfect dream while others mostly cry and sometimes scream
good deeds leave nothing to redeem we all lie in dirt or so it would seem

time and space go hand in hand we all must suffer there every command
pain and strife go hand in hand alone we fall and alone we must stand
in the end we pass to the land until we fade and crack turning into black sand

writing this down its quite hard to think today could be it id be gone in a blink
pondering the end leads to the brink no matter how high ones soar everything must sink
it seems to be a very grim notion no matter how hard you swim your consumed by the ocean
live like some mad commotion but time moves straight it knows no other motion

life and death go hand in hand no matter who you are you see others life’s are so grand
fools and liars walk hand in hand each of us all carry these life’s long brand
until the day we return to the land once particles of icy cold lifeless black sand

all of us are dieing only some know when cant control the future but we are were we’ve been
the endless void a thought Iam not akin ill go when I go and not until then 
perception is something you have to be in to see our lives stretch and then grow thin
So many hits we take in the chin but the harder I’m hit the wider I grin
because one thing is certain on your journey you’ll be hit over and over again

shame and guilt go hand in hand for all our troubles the end cannot be planned
love and loss go hand in hand we hold so tight by the thinnest strand
until we sleep in the bosom of the land when all of this returns to black sand

ANOTHER VICTIM

Unadulterated rape caught on tape
boys and girls can't escape
people missing never to be seen
getting a card, have you seen me

It was dark as midnight
she couldn't hardly see
lying in bed saying who sharing me
they liked her frame
the form of her brain
as another man partake 
messing up her inside grain

She tried to escape
they disfigured her shape
now this another victim thats
been raped

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

silhouettes

i welcome you 
to the end of us
Dawn
a new day to 
begin again

fingers 
against the window
you softly press
A touch of wind
A silhouette
in the air

these are 
your raindrops
what are you crying for
Please don't cry anymore

only foot steps 
chase you
for i am startled 
and still in place
Demples
and a feeling
of home
behind your
flower vase

love 
is departure
The wonders 
you think of 
standing still 
in a garden

City lights
her clouds 
are dipping low
the one place 
she belongs 
she doesn't 
want to go

these are 
your raindrops
what are you crying for
Please don't cry anymore

she likes 
bite sized 
penut butter 
cookies
sneaker doodles
kittens 
and french poodles

she's got 
a pointed nose
that says 
The suns been out
she's always here
she never droughts

Under the Black Flag

Unleashed upon the enemy
We tear through their lines
Showing no mercy
In the midst of battle

Feeding the Flesh Grinder
Severed off limbs
We resupply our food stocks
The more we kill
The more we eat
Human flesh
Sustenance of our society

Blood washed fields
Littered with skulls of the dead
Decapitation before evisceration
Labotamized
Their brains pulls out
The skulls are left out to rot

Blood sprays upwards
from the roof of the Flesh Grinder
It rains down on to the warzone
Exciting the warriors even more
Roars of rage and hatred
Can be heard clearly for miles and miles
They feed off the terror their enemies feel
Leaving not a single soul alive to stand against them

Agony

You took me home, I drink to much because of you my livers turn to dust
You got me high my lungs have quit for the last time.
And because of you my obsession grows more and more with each passing day.
I do it more to feel the high but it just won’t come back to me. 
I tried to walk but it’s so hard I just end up on my back staring into the sky.
You came to me to help me back onto to my feet.
And helped walk me back to the car even with my resistance you took me home.
I’m sick of the things you have said and done while leaving me high and dry.
I’m so messed up from what you've said and I’m on the brink of dieing out, of 
this place you call my home.
I’ve tried to make since of all the things you have said to me, But it is impossible 
to stay on track. Some people shouldn’t be alive. That’s how I feel.
Like I’m not needed in this life, even though it might hold something I should 
uncover,
I’ve never searched these things in mind that should be found, but yet apparently
unattainable to keep track, it’s almost impossible to grab a hold of the thing that 
are most vital to your life. 
When you are in a life where all you do is getting smashed and seared. And you 
try and try to help me up, but you took one move… You took the one wrong move...
You took me home. Because of you my life now sucks!
And it’s now whirling out of my control 
I feel I’m fading from this place that you have brought me to 
So take my away from here I need not to see your face in front of mine 
So get away... away from me!
Why is it when you call my name, I’m put in a state of misery
I’m am so perplexed, can’t see straight
I’ve tried to go and find my-self it's just so frustrating
I can’t take the fact that you entered my life at an age that I do not know
And I try to ask my-self what can I do to help me out of this awful state
Of misery.
Than you made an effort to help me up, but then I see a whole new being and it’s 
not you but somewhat else… I see… I see My-self!?!
I think I helped my soul from this death I think that I have come to my sixth 
senses and have turned my life around.
But you still make that one last go to start this all another time
You took me home with this agony
And I ask you one last time why did you make my life this living hell!?!

I found the power to turn beauty to a pig.

As we sit at the edge of the bridge
Do you expect me to jump?
I found the power to turn beauty to a pig
and my methods are out of control.

I only pushed you away cause I love you.
I only hope to satisfy your smile.
In a world with endless possibility .
Is it possible to make this worthwhile?

Maybe I fight because I'm used to playing the victim.
Either way what kind of savage am I?
I'll put this switchblade through my  neck.
If I knew it could keep you from crying.

I Love feeling sad does that make you sick?
I find love in being sad haven't you noticed.
I love feeling sad does that make you feel sick?
Now step away.


I only pushed you away cause I love you.
I only hope to satisfy your smile.
In a world with endless possibility.
Is it possible to make this worthwhile?

The dawning of the last day was a massacre.
Is there nothing I can do to make this right?
I eight balled the neglected.
and I wonder why she hates my eyes.
No blood loss nothing left to lose.

Prelude to abrasion

Of all the things I could mean
The little dreams we come to be
Beneath the porch lights dim
My mind begins to wander slightly grim

And if you can’t help me seem
A little less worried now 

I touched your lips this morning
And walked out on life
Broken beneath a crush
I sat out all night

And if you can help me sing
A little less worried now 

Up and against the dawn
If you could help me settle in 
A single gasp to bring me to my feet 
No reasoning beyond this measurement

And if you can’t help me seem
A little less worried now 

Dianna, sweetheart
They let me know of your fatherless damn
Your savior, your breaded Jesus
That’s not who I am 

And if you can help me sing
A little less worried now

UNLOCKING THESE SECRETS...

Gleaming smile, 
reflecting life...
nurture with joy
what lives within.
Content heart,
reach out and share
with others your secret...
to live and breath easier.
Nothing can ease
the burden on your shoulders,
if the cause of its heaviness
is regarded with negligence. 
The hunger for anything
can be satisfied by wisdom,
not by wishful thinking...
godly thoughts lead to freedom.  
Control your desires,
and restrain your urges,
don't hope to get to Heaven... 
analyze your faults and kneel down.
Love whoever you choose,
make sure your fragile heart won't bruise
from the mistakes you can make...
once it shatters, it can't be reshaped.
Unlocking these secrets
widens your knowledge,
and prevents many headaches
from turning into rage.

I'm Moving On

I’m moving on
‘Cuz I felt so strong 
About you,
You were so untrue to me
I was fool to do,
What I did for you,
I did for no one else.
I had to learn,
That I’m better off by myself.

Boy, you know I was the best for you.
No other woman could fill my shoes.
I had no clue that I would be misused.
I stayed and tried to make it work.
The more I did you showed me,
That you were the biggest jerk.

That’s why, I’m moving on
‘Cuz I felt so strong 
About you,
You were so untrue to me
I was fool to do,

That I’m better off by myself.

When we first met you were so sweet.
I thought our lives would be complete.
I thought you were the one for me.
You made me feel so good inside.
You showed me too much of that thug pride,
That kept you silent when I would ask,
If loving me was your at least one of your tasks.

So now, I’m moving on
‘Cuz I felt so strong 
About you,
You were so untrue to me
I was fool to do,
What I did for you,
I did for no one else.
I had to learn,
That I’m better off by myself.

I fell flat on my face in love with you.
I told you and I wanted to hear,
The same three words from you.
What a joke!
All I heard was, “I know.”
I stayed and in your change ,
I kept believing.
Nothing happened,
That’s why I’m leaving.

I’m moving on
‘Cuz I felt so strong 
About you,
You were so untrue to me
I was fool to do,
What I did for you,
I did for no one else.
I had to learn,
That I’m better off by myself.

Boy, you know I was the best for you.
No other woman could fill my shoes.
I had no clue that I would be misused.

Ooooh, I’m moving on
‘Cuz I felt so strong

my trust is never ending.


Come, I'll teach you sweet love;
don't hang on useless fear,
look back, see how we really loved.


When joy made us smile,
and we passionately touched
without saying a word...   
as the bright moon stopped awhile,
when all stars brightened the sky.


But tonight darkness stays,
and we despair; and we
lose our faith in destiny.


Our rainbow of yesterday
won't reappear today
with the Heaven above;
come, I'll teach you sweet love.

The song is entitled, "No More" from the musical " Into The Woods".

IRENE WAS THE AMERICAN GIRL

Irene was the American girl,
the only pretty one I should have based my romantic story on;
and that story is still unwritten...
not having been able to forget the rejection that turned into pain. 
Two bright and respectful kids we were,
growing up with Bob Dylan's intellectual poetry,
but mine was the waltz of a beautiful song...
with the words of the truest love I had ever written.
Brown and blue eyes would have made green eyes,
blonde and brown hair would have made auburn hair;
nothing but the handsomest boy or even the prettiest girl...
for us to love and proudly share for many happy years ahead. 

But who has been your darling since then?
Have you found tenderness in that man?

i am here

I speak for many
But not for all 
He was a military veteran
Awaiting a September fall
I put my song in your heart
My heart is your song
Until I crawl beaten
Back into your womb
Days they seem to stretch
For how long
Could I have been wrong
For how long

As I journey 
Through my darkest days 
Of sunshine
Nothing but cold winters 
On my mind 

Enlighten the darkest killer
I died of amnesia 
I don’t want to pray anymore
A forgotten ritual
Seen too many have-nots
Plastered to heavens doors
Remember me
For I shall not return
Remember me
A beggar at arms
Mother’s last scar 
Lost his soul
Seen it slither homeless
As I tempt passion
This cognac in a jar

Journey through 
The darkest sunshine
Nothing but cold winters
On my mind

Seventy-two on clear sheets
Father where can your savior be
Are you comfortably numb
Or numb and can’t find comfort
Living off the hand of a locust
An honest man attempting
To stay focused when hurt
Turnover and sleep
The piano speaks to me  
Violin creeping down my spine
Nothing but cold winters on my mind
As I journey through the darkest sunshine

Time To Heal

Looking deep inside
I try to find the answers
to all the things that are
tearing at my heart.

I am seeking truth
and praying for redemption
but I need time to heal
for I've been torn apart.

I want to leave the hurt
that I have known behind me
sear the bleeding wounds,
so many still remain.

Even though the scars
may be thick upon me
they are only scars
if I live through the pain.

I am on my knees
begging for sweet mercy
praying for the life
of my dying soul.

Just let me rest a while
within your tender caring
so I can gain the strength
to reach my final goal.

Through the dark of night
the storm may keep on raging
but when the morning comes
the day just might be clear.

Then I'll be on my way
heading toward my future
and in my beating heart
I will hold you near.

Fathers Love

Watching my son play I suddenly see myself,
Myself as a young boy 
A boy with dreams so bright,
Dreams I dare only dream with the darkness of night
I could be anything and yet I was everything,
Within my dreams I lived free
Free for all and for all to see
Dreaming was everything to me 
Dreams were all I had you see
As a young boy I was all alone
The pain of a missing family often shown
And finally I found you,
Watching you play, I find you
Forgetting days past I now live within you, 
Sharing dreams of a future limitless,
Bounds not yet known,
For this is something you learn when you are grown
For have no fear 
I will always be here
By your side standing with pride 
Bursting with joy for you are my boy 
Even when you think why bother
I want you to remember 
I will always be your father!

The Fool on the Hill

Standing on the sloping lawn by the lake
     in the pouring rain
       hoping this ritual will ease my spiritual pain, 
                (dreams slain, memories profane)                                         
arms wide
                (as if crucified)
palms up, head tilted back, holding perfectly still,
                (like The Fool on the Hill)
now this song is running through my head,
                (hard to believe all but one of them are dead)
understanding the lyrics now, finally, in my old age,
                (having overcome the youthful rage)
more things making sense,
                (like that there's no such thing as coincidence,)
I can make my body be still but my mind races on,
     an unspoken marathon,
wishing I could achieve Zen,
     remembering when
         I was a kid watching Kung Fu,
            the serenity he knew,
my mind now leaping to the Carradine clan,
   Hollywood's one-time leading man,
      the patriarch John 
         and how my father's older brother
             was a good friend of his,
                   (a familial brush with show biz)
the rain is letting up
                   (wishing my brain would shut up,)
soaking wet, hair plastered, peace unmastered,
            life is overwhelming, an endless disaster,
my mother's face in her coffin:
            cold and white and hard as alabaster,
and you wonder why I sleep so much (!?)
            why I'm so out of touch (!?)

It's so my brain will BE QUIET
            to quell the INNER RIOT...

The doctor gave me Xanax
            I think I'll try it.

Liaison

Sadly I’m happy 
I worry 
From you to me 
I shouldn’t have you 
And vice versa 
You sing me songs 
I write to you in cursive 
A reluctant curse of mercury 
My words 
Never purposely hurt you 
Champagne glasses 
A fence of Vinyl   
Our intake of your chardonnay 
Too vastly 
Becoming more comfortable 
With this character 
You typecast me as 
You take me 
You ruin my thoughts 
Who’s right 
Who’s never wrong 
On weathered days we picnic 
We voyage the river home 
It’s obvious 
It doesn’t bother me 
But it does 
You are all that I was 
Seductive 
A game seldom played 
Lovely 
An inspiration 
Not welcome in our days 
You cry 
But I don’t care to focus 
You care 
But I don’t notice 
If I hurt you 
You nurture me 
Even as my touch 
Tortures anything I see 
Shall I go on 
Melodies and violin strings 
Sooth me gone 
I miss you 
Do you miss me 
Tragedians 
We’re beautiful 
Are you with me 
We’re a romance 
Yet no one leaves happily

Reach Out (You Can!)

Reach out and touch someone’s hand.
This will make the world a better place.
You can!

Reach out and help someone’s life plan.
This will help you find your life’s purpose.
You can!

Reach out and leave the surface of your home.
This will make you well-known.
You can!

Reach out and touch someone’s hand.
This will make the world a better place.
You can!

By Odin Sent

Called to arms
By the Spear God
Our Allfather Odin
He bids us welcome
Telling of the lies
being spread in the lands
That some would betray his watchful eyes

By Odin sent
We are here to kill
To take the lives of those
Their deaths
Each of them chose
The day they defied Odin
Their fates were woven

The village lays
Before our eyes
Peaceful, quaint and quiet
They all turn and look with horror
As we charge, weapons held high
Our screams echoing through air
Their minds consumed by despair
They flee in fear

Smashing down their gate
We have crushed their defenses
Pouring into the village
We begin the bloodshed
Taking each life we find
Sending every last one to Hel

There are those who choose to stand
They die with honour and sword in hand
A death far too fitting for such people
Setting their homes ablaze
We roar our cries of victory
Odin's name we praise

One-eyed God
Watches over the worlds
There's no place to hide
By Odin sent
We are here to kill

' Warriors ... The Battle Cry Song ... '

There Are Sounds of Ancient Thunders
There Are Sounds of Ancient Drummers
        Calling … Brave Warriors
         Gladiators and Warriors

And They’re Marching To The Cadence of Their Hearts’ Pounding
Marching, To The Cadence of The World’s Rage Resounding
They’re Going By The Beat of Their Heart’s Pumping
By The Steady Flow of Blood and Bloodlust, Tells Me Somethin’

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

Chorus:

But, We’ve Seen These Men, Playing With Their Children
We’ve Seen These Sons and Their Laughter, I’m Hearing
We’ve Seen These Men, Loving Their Babies
And Tenderly Holding and Kissing Their Ladies

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From Warriors … When They Die

               … Warriors …
         Courageous Warriors …

Sticks and Stones, Swords, Arrows and Bombs
Lances, Knives, Hand to Hand Combat, Napalm
God Almighty, Oh, Thy Kingdom Come
Please Rescue Us, From The Kingdom of The Gun …

And Prophecy Is Marching – Listen, All Who Arms Bear
Warriors, Must Beat War Weapons Into Plowshares            ( Isa. 2: 4 )
And When War, Is No More, Then We Will Hear
All Warriors’ Battle Cry, Will Be An Amen Cheer !

              … Gentle Warriors …
            Peace-Loving, Warriors …

2nd Chorus:

Oh Lord, Please Stop These Warriors’ Battle Cry
And The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Mothers and Wives
The Battle Cry, Coming From Their Little Ones’ Eyes
The Battle Cry, Coming From A Warrior’s … Last ‘ Why ? ’

                … Warriors …
           Courageous Warriors …

How Can Flesh and Blood, Mortal-Men, Be So Fearless, I Wonder
Are They Strengthened By Duty, Love and Honor
Facing Danger, Death and Being Torn Asunder
Sacrificing All, As A Fallen Soldier …

                 … Warrior …
           Courageous Warrior …

keep this moment
within our hearts
within this moment time
forever yours 
be my baby
take m under your wings
close my eyes think of you
my heart sings

fallen into you
my dreams
suddenly came true
within this moment in time
forever yours only
fallen for you
taken by a storm
eyes so gentle as the rain
you keep me safe and warm

gentle wispers of an angel
call me
tell me your my baby
listen to the angels
that weep
they brought u and me together
though were miles apart
youve captured my heart


i fallen for you
please hold me close
forever please stay
dont go away
lets dream together
be my one and only
live forvever

like a dream
nothing is what it seems
without you
i would be incomplete
my best friend
my angel
the one who makes my heart
skip a beat

truly an angel from above
gentle wispers
of a choir
play
while i see your face in my dreams
your the one i could love
be my baby....

Darkness

Power is a struggle
Only the strongest can achieve
They are the true people
Those that strive and pursue power
They will conquer the universe

Peace is a lie, there is only passion
The world is in constant change
Emotions follow suit

Through passion, I gain strength
Use emotion to power action

Through strength, I gain power
Strength is dominance and leads to greatness

Through power, I gain victory
In greatness you achieved, all desired

Through victory my chains are broken
All is crushed beneath you

There must only be two
Never more
One to desir the unholy strength
The other to instruct how to gain such power
Betrayal must be seeded inside the minds of the weak
and the light must be snuffed out

Proclaim your power, let none stand in your way
The universe can be yours, you only need to free your passion

Papa Says Yes Mama Says No

Papa says yes
Mama says no

Off to a dance
I want to go

Flowers in my hair
Mama says Girl don't you dare

Horn's just a blaring
Papa not even caring

Begging dear mama
Please Please can I go hah hah

If your papa says yes
Then I must confess

Your mama says no
But This time I'll let you go

Be home by eleven
My little princess from Heaven

For if you come in late
Your papa is going to kill that date

Forever Safe

She knew that he was leaving
They had a baby on the way
He’d definitely miss the delivery,
Most likely the 1st birthday
He knows that she’s a fighter
She’d have to do this one on her own
He was leaving to fight a war, flying out today
He’d call her when he could,
He would write her everyday ,
But most of all he’d pray to God
That if anything -  
she’d  be forever safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

The letters, they kept arriving
They made her laugh and cry and weep
She’d read each one again out loud 
Every night before she’d  sleep
Then there’d be a note just for the baby
Words of love sent from his daddy
Telling him one day soon,
Soon,  they would meet
After each letter she’d kneel and pray,
To God and the Heavens above 
Please God,  if anything, 
please keep him safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

He shouted words of love and encouragement
Through a static phone line that was fading out, 
He could hardly hear, with the explosions all around
She cursed him like a sailor ,
She pushed while screaming out his name
He said, I know that you’re  a fighter
Fight now and give him life
In the heartbeat of a second, 
The world went silent - all around
No more static on the phone line and
He heard the new life of his son cry out

A son and a soldier cried  together
A mother and a wife was in between
She said, my nose, your eyes
And he’s a fighter like his daddy
So, fight and come home, there’s someone you gotta meet
Just promise me,  you’ll keep yourself – safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

God Devourer

To'aak crushed the skull of his sworn enemy, Mor Kaot, under his mighty iron boot. Taking
the Vaul Ash for his own, he raised the prize high, roaring his challenge to the skies.

Gods so high
You will be joining this weakling
For I am coming for you all

My rage burns
your shrines everyday
You can no longer hold me back
I am the Syka
Born to purge
Destined for glory
Send forth your legions so I may have sustenance for my journey to you

As was scribed To'aak was meant for glory
His campaign, it is fueled by fury
The Vaul Ash was his, the holy medicine of the Gods
No more shall they be blessed by immortality

He would claim their skulls
and devour their hearts
He was born into death and hate
None will be able to stop him on his conquest
It only ends when the Gods are dead

to your dismay

I saw a family starving, striving to survive
The father couldn’t get a job
Purses being snatched
The old man was too noble to rob
Passed two white children with dirty faces
Their smiles we’re worth a thousand daisies
Their hopes been misused, and abused
And it’s far from racial 
Because poverty doesn’t equal places
My stomach worries 
But my appetites been driven tasteless
I’ve been viewing your post 
Reading your comments
And at times it’s torment
I write to comfort my conscience 
But there are times 
Life can knock us unconscious 
I guess in this inhumane world 
We can only be monsters
You either move along or you are moved on
A response to value
To those who seem to want to sooth my songs
The poetry runs deep and touches home
Our most tempered moments unknown
Someone to carry you on, to and from 
My worries going nowhere
Thieves running with liquor
Lost on welfare
Trading stamps for clothes and worse
In case she wants to make a deal
She carries her wic with her 
And it seems no one notices anything 
Until it’s too late
Gunned down, hit twelve times in the back
No mercy, I guess it was a due fate 
It’s a constant battle of ignorance versus change 
Telling me not to hold so much hate
But it’s the resentment I feel
That’s why I’ll never change
And to whom shall I pray 
When it’s the same god 
Whom shelters my enemies

DESTINY

Long before a sheath is woven, before the cocoon is made, 
Before a caterpillar seals it’s womb, before the eggs are laid,
Before air becomes the breath of life of everything that breathes,
Before a hawk takes to flight, before fish swim in the sea,

Before the cattle graze the range, and the beast roam through the fields,
And the creeping thing also crawls the earth, before the mountains and the hills,
Before the valley becomes a  dale, before a tree is grown,
Before a pod becomes a plant, before the garden is sown,  

Before the earth takes shape and form, before stars light up the sky,
Before the likeness of God was made, there was no you nor I,
Before the ashes and the dirt, and the mold of man was clay,
Before the dark and morning, there was no night or day,

Before the Heavens were set aside from Eden to the east,
Before God cursed his creation, into the belly of the beast,
Before the tree of knowledge was touched, before the tree of life,
Before Adam was tempted by his mate, before Eve was given to wife,

Before the earth was flooded, before Noah and his Ark,
Before Moses rose his staff on high and the Red Sea, God, did part,
Before the coat of colors was placed on Jacob’s son,
Before the king of Egypt, Joseph was the one,

Before the ten commandments were written in the stone,
Before the voice of God was heard, before Christ stood all alone,
Before the Son of God was born, before Mary became God’s wife,
On the cross, Christ surrendered to man, The Ultimate Sacrifice.

Let's Duke It Out

I was born in nineteen sixty nine
just off the block and in my prime
now let me introduce you to 
some pertty good friends of mine

Let's start with my uncle Jesse
to me he looks like he's ninety nine
but I love to watch him when he
takes nips from his moonshine 

Here's my owners Bo and Luke 
cousins of a kind just hanging out
with Daisy who looks 
so sweet and so darn fine

But There's some other folks
that just don't like our kind
its those sheriff folks thats
watching the hazzard county line

Starting with their fearless leader Boss Hogg
Who's radioing all the frigging time to
Cooter and Davenport And to that rascal
Rosco P Coltrane who he cannot find

Now my life is such sweet devine
when your jumping in and out of my windows 
while running from those sheriffs from Georgia County line
in my general lee waving a confederate flag thats in it's prime
Honking my horn to a dixie tune of same kind

Unexplained Girl

I wondered how my life would end up after all the 

drama that I caused, what was I suppose to be aware 

of. I never meant to hurt anybody. I never meant to 

put the people that I truly love in a situation like 

that. It was pointless, the things that I did. I 

don't regret it, it was a life lesson, one I could 

never contradict. Why pay mind to things that can 

break me. Why should I cry over people that end up 

hating me. Falling so deep..... For people that never 

loved me. Played mind games at the time, I just knew 

I'd be the talk of the hood/town, what ever you want 

to call it. People that I never slept with, Lord 

knows that I did nothing with but just because people 

knew my name, they'd believe every word he say. So 

now here I am writing poetry to explain, that indeed, 

I'm not a hoe just an unexplained girl. Why should I 

sit here and pay attention to most of these lies, 

when I can be doing something better with my own 

life.... Key word, my life. They swear they know me, 

they swear they hit but I only know who I actually 

been with. O wells, just because you know my name, 

doesn't mean, you actually know me. I think about it 

constantly and wonder where I'm headed. At one point 

of time, I thought I was headed to the grave after all 

he did was jump in my mother's face, what was I 

suppose to do sit and wait, wait for what I ask, so 

he can hit my mother, matter fact I wish he would but 

then again all this happen because I opened my legs. 

I should have waited, I should have been patient , I 

should have never did anything with my first love

(what's love anyways, a 4 letter word that means 

nothing), If I waited I guarantee that I wouldn't be 

this way. I'm not a hoe just an unexplained girl. You 

don't know my circumstances, you just don't know me 

and if you did, I bet it would be a whole different 

story. My past, my past, my past I wish I could turn 

back the hands of time, but then again I don't. I 

regret I'm not a virgin, I regret just for knowing 

the boys around the way, but I don't regret the 

things that happened to me. What more can I explain 

except getting jumped by 13 got damn men, matter fact 

little boys at that. You may think I'm wack just 

hearing these verses but at least I'm honest and 

letting my story be heard, I'm nothing more just an 

unexplained girl.

Into the Deep

Perspective's changing
Paradise waits for all
You needn't fear a thing
As death begins to call

Slowly you fall into the depths of peace
Surrounded by the sun
Its shining so bright
Burning your soul into new life
Overwhelming
The joy washes over you
You've realized
What you've always known

The world shines beneath your feet
The entire universe sits inside your hand
Knowing grants power
You can obtain it all
Change the world
to grant you happiness
See that joy is not hopeless

You are
You know that for sure
The one thing existing
Its all your choosing
The times you were winning
The times you were loosing

Time itself
Dies as you find yourself
Lost with a sure sense of where you're going
In a maze always growing
The constant learning
making it all so simple

Slowly you fall deeper into the depths of peace
Enveloped by the sun
Enlightened by its brilliant rays
Igniting the immortal fire within' your heart
Overpowered
Strength flows through your veins
You know
What you've always known
You know
You've always been

Goddess of Nekras

Decay
Undead flesh
Infested with larvae and worms
Glory to the living dead

Mari'jas the queen of the Nekras
Born from the Earth
She was conceived in death
The mistress of burial rites
She holds power over all the dead

Leading all into her darkened embrace
She waits for each and all to die
Accompanying you to your demise
Fresh flesh she must always consume

Thrust into the feeding pit
Her zombie hordes digest the death
Stranded in this region of famine
You will feel not but excruiating pain
This domain is plagued
Decaying fields filled with masses of undead

Consume the life of those once breathing
Suck their blood till you thirst no more
Deteriorating skin
shows bone beneath dead muscle
She has defied ultimate death
and she is giving you the chance to be free

Tested Through Torture

With a gun to your head
You're screaming
Please don't kill me
I want to live

But I feel no remorse
for your cries
I revell in the noise
Your sounds of terror

I am judgement
I am the one who decides
You fear the coming end
Tested through torture
You choose your fate

You're weak and useless
You cower and run
You have no honour
or respect for yourself
No courage
No pride
That's why you're going to die

Thumb pulls back the hammer
Sweat and tears
run down your face
You beg and plead
You're just disgusting me more

The click of the trigger
Was deafened by the bang
Only in death are you silent
As your brains spill on to the wall

I Just Gotta Tell You

I just gotta tell you 
about this man I know

How He follows me around
where ever I go

I don't even mind much
cause I love Him so

This is how
my story goes

Once I was lost
but then was found

His voice that of an angel
Lifts me from the chains of hell

I know He'll alway's be right by my side
Even if I'd gone off and have died

I give thanks to the Lord above
Wishing I could ride on His winged doves

I'd shout from His highest mountains
And tell it to the world over and over again

How much this guy means to me so
As I etched His name across the snow

Jesus Is the only one for me
Once you feel His love too 
you'll surely agree

sing a song

Son,
let your feet be knowing something
and let your voice be knowing something too.
For the time has come 
when rumbling and trembling voices shall cease
so roll your eyes and sway ur lips
with song that are tall and strong.
let it raise the dead to dance 
let it mingle, 
Oh! let it mingle with a million tongued ligthening clatter 
of the drum of mordern time.

My Love Walk To You

You came into my life,
showed me what was right
now I believe in love at first sight.

You showed me how to feel.
Yes it feels so real.
You brought those feelings out,
I kept inside and sealed.

I love you so, and I
want you to know, as I 
walk down the aisle
my love is yours forever more.

At times; I get so weak inside
never letting go of your love
now I thank God he sent you
from above.

I want you to know,
my heart will never go.
It's hear to stay for you,
the beats will always flow.

You looked into my eyes
and I told you why,
the sensational love, that's why
I will be yor wife.

Waiting on life

Living within my mind I play with myself
Remembering games I once knew as I boy,
I play
Innocents revealed and with an open heart,
I play
Ignorant to life, I was a boy
Family lost, I was just a boy
Full of dreams, I was a boy
Forced into life I became a man
Without a family I learned to stand
Left in life all alone
My true path was never shown
my life until further notice...
Is to be postponed…

On The Outside

I take each day, baby, come what may
I got my own set of rules
Three sixty-five, and I’m still alive
I’m wallowing through the fools

Make one thing clear, I’m living without fear
I’m saving all of my dough
You think I’m scared, but I am thoroughly prepared
To leave you burning below

I go for it all, who cares if I fall
I Get up and try it again
Nose to the nail, I don’t know how to spell fail
I only know how to win

You try to stop me on my way to the top
Do what you feel you must
I’ll give you one guess, you got it I am the best
And you can eat my dust

‘Cause I’m on the outside, looking inside
Dying for my sins
I’m on the outside, selling my pride
Buying my way in

if my life is mine

I miss you like yesterday
But I figure that you’re okay
I’ve gotten this habit 
Of not meaning what I tend to say

I don’t bleed blue
For air feels me
Like disappointment 
Often chooses you

I made you read my life’s line
Now you lead my life’s line
I made you live a life’s line
Now you give a life’s time

I can’t stand sitting 
Alone at your table
I hate life because
Realistically it’s a fable
And too often it leans in your favor

I made you read my life’s line
Now you leave my life’s line
I made you live a life’s line
Now you give a life’s time

The moon if it’s rising
The tide is surprisingly 
A matter of circumstance
I can’t stand you 
Might I have this dance

With me you lived a life’s time
Now you lead a life’s line
I made you read my life’s line
Now you see my life’s fine
I let you see my life’s line 
Now you leave my life mine

Walking In Graceland

I'm moving up to graceland
you know that mansion over the hilltop
to have just a little talk with jesus
for I don't knock upon his doors
for I know the gates swing open
how great thou art
that we're blessed
in the wonderful grace of jesus
for it's written in red
as I was made a christian
and saw the light while
strolling down beulual lane
out in the sunshine
dear father in heaven
we all can do good
something beautiful
even a whispering hope
sitting down by the old rugged cross
take my hand
precious lord
don't leave me crying in the chapel
move me to your higher ground
crossing the river of jordan
fill my cup lord
to let me rise again
for without you I haven't got a prayer
so please take me as I am jesus
for I'll remain tried and true
for I know there's somebody bigger than you or I
in this wonderment of thy amazing grace

' By All That Is Holy ... ' (Medieval # 1)

By All That Is Holy… The Knight Rode Away
Yonder o’er the Borders and Hills
Away to a Kingdom… to be His One Day…
Bound by Pledge and Royal Seal…

… for Valor and Honor and a Deed Well-Done
He wast’ given the Titles Thereof…
Glory and Power of A Champion
Of The High-King, He Loyally Loves…

By All That Is Holy… We Speak of His Fame
By All That Is Holy… Comes Thru His Name
That Strong, Gentle Knight of Light and Love
By All That Is Holy… Be Blessed Above

By All ‘Tis Holy  -  Pure, Virtuous
He Vanquished all His King’s Foes
In Obedience and Boldness… So Beauteous
That Forevermore… Everyone Knows!...

By All That is Holy… He is Now, Lord of Lords
GOD’s Will, ‘tis His Shield… Justice ‘tis His Sword
Prince of Peace, Paid a Ransom… we could nay Afford
… an Eternal Crown… ‘Tis His Priceless Reward

By All That Is Holy… The Hero Rose Away
By All That Is Holy… He Will Return One Day
We wilt’ Herald and Cheer, as Sir Mercy passes through
By All That Is Holy… He can Save You Too!

What I love About You

verse 1

numb feelings
painted ceilings
fast healings
sealed dealings
so appealing

is what I love about you
what I love about you

smooth fashion
hearts passion
foods rations
looks dashing
eyes flashing

is what I love about you
what I love about you

your love potion
your blue oceans
those nod notions
hip motions
smell of baby lotion

is what I love about you
what I love about you

azure skies
mystical eyes
shapely thighs
wispering cries
tells me why

is what I love about you
what I love about you

verse 2

for it comes as no suprise
as it opened up my eyes
makes me just want to reach out to that sky
and pull you close and near by
for this I'll tell you why

is what I love about you
is what I love about you

verse 3

for you make me feel so high
when I know your standing close by
take my hand lord for I am very shy
and I promise I won't cry
and for this you'll know why

is what I love about you
is what I love about you

Glory To The Lord

Glory to the Lord, glory to the Lord
He has saved my soul
Glory to the Lord, glory to the Lord
He has saved my soul
I was dead yes before
Now I live for evermore
Glory, glory to the Lord
Changed my life from bad to good
Now I'll praise Him like I should
Glory, glory to the Lord
Glory O glory this song is my testimony
Glory, glory to the Lord
Glory O glory this song is my testimony
Glory, glory to the Lord
Yes He died on Calvary now He lives inside of me
Glory, glory to the Lord
When I think of what He's done
I just want to sing this song
Glory, glory to the Lord
Glory, glory to the Lord.

My Mask

I cry so many times and yet no one sees it
I cry so deep in my heart and yet no one hears it
sadly I can look you in the face and show you joy
when deep down I feel pain,I can give you smiles 
with my words and never let on I'm in pain ,my mask 
is well and you'll never see it,for you see I've learned to disguise it,
I can give you love and never know it,why because I stopped learninig how to 
show it.

no more rainy days
of me crying over you
no more cheating days
this time im through with you
i have to break away
because im addicted to you
i shouldve known it will be this way
because of the things you do...

we've been through this,
a thousand times
i cant take no more
you wasting my time
even though i've tried
to make it right
no matter what i do
youre not doin right

no more rainy days
of me crying over you
no more cheating days
this time im through with you
i have to break away
because im addicted to you
i shouldve known it will be this way
because of the things you do

i gave you my heart
and you betrayed it
all these years 
wasnt worth it

i was devoted to you
i never tried to hurt you
and this is the thanks
i get from you

no,no
no more rainy days
me,me
of me crying over you
repeat:


no more rainy days
of me crying over you
no more cheating days
this time im through with you
i have to break away
because im addicted to you
i shouldve known it will be this way
because of the things you do...

Son Rise (from Scenes from Above)

Wave goodbye Tomorrow 
Die, drown another victim in yesterdays sorrow
This is goodbye tomorrow 
No tides to borrow 
So goodbye tomorrow 
Yesterday gone, tomorrow not shown 
Today just a repetition of a sinners definition 
My hopes shattered 
How do I cope with my tears and matter 
Drooling of fantasy's when you had her
A poor mans paradise 
Adversity and no cares about life 
Living in hell and loving it 
Pivoting through bail and shoving it 
Shoulder blades cracked, collar bones crumbled 
Older, outdated, fact is to remain humble
Cemetery lust 
Post marriage life and fussing is a must 
Burning eyelids 
Is there even a such thing as baby's dying of SIDDS 
Irresponsibility, parent-hood and no agility 
Rapper and murderer's 
Yall are cursed, so don't even refer to us 
I'm blessed with stress, my life's a mess 
But for me happiness is only a test 
And when you see that sudden glow in my eyes
And the room flow's with goodbyes 
It will all come as no surprise 
That as I pray for tomorrow
I'll be taken before sunrise 
And maybe I'll get to witness again his Son Rise

I Keep On Praising Him

VI.	I’m at the altar, I’m on my knees.  I’ve been praising, giving God the praise.  He 
deserves it all after all He’s done.  I keep on praising Him, I keep on praising.

CH.	I keep on praising, I keep on praising Him for all He’s done and all He’s ‘bout to 
do.  I keep on praising Him.  I keep on praising giving God the glory.  I keep on praising Him.

VII.	Many blessings come my way, and it makes a better day.  No one can do what 
God has done.  I keep on praising Him, I keep on praising.

To Our Young people

For all that life has given me nothing is more greater than being a mom,
that is the one thing in life that I cherish the most is to have been able to be a part 
of  your lives to get to know each of you as the indiviuals that you are,And to 
have had the chance to grow with you and see where your lives would take you 
has been the best trip I've enjoyed,I know there are still more rides to enjoy on 
this road and I hope we continue to share those rides together whether good or 
bad I wouldn't want to share the ride with anyone else beside me except 
you,alway's knowthat whether I'm near or far,my heart and love will alway's be 
with you,to remind you your never far from my mind or thee heart, you have truly 
rewarded me in so many ways that I will never be able to repay you for the joy's 
and the lessons you have taught me,I only hope that when I've left your side that 
you have enough of my love in you to be able to walk on with all that I have tried to 
pass on to you,may it be enough to keep your heart strong.When i'm  no longer 
there to hear the words you speak in person or by phone and when your mind 
starts to play games of the loss you feel,I only hope the heart will go on to pump 
the love I have for you thru your veins as a vessel of my love ,my mother had 
alway's let me know in words that I was loved but it's important to me that you be 
able to read this when you feel the need to be sure where my heart lies,we will 
never agree completely on alot of things but that will never stop the love that flows 
thru my heart,keep these words close to  your heart  and let them alway's echo 
as a reminder of what I feel for you,my children.




                                                                                    love,
                                                                                          mom

CHASING BUTTONS

From his home-made wooden rocker my dad beckoned with his hand, 
as his wasting frame would not allow the dying man to stand 
and he handed me two buttons, that were worn and on a chain, 
then he whispered of their origins while grimacing with pain. 
 
“These two buttons were my father’s lad and from a prison shirt 
that dad wore because he’d beat a man who’d treated him like dirt. 
He was placed in solitary and that added to his shame, 
so to stay sane in that darkness … well he played this little game. 
 
“He would throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and he’d search until he found them in his quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes he’d throw those two white buttons and they kept the poor man sane, 
till they finally released him and my dad came home again. 
 
“When I met your darling mother son I felt right from the start 
that this girl was something special and I knew deep in my heart 
that we’d marry and have family and son the dream came true, 
but it broke me when I lost her, after she gave birth to you. 
 
“Though I had you to remember her, I nearly lost my mind 
and I’d ask God in my darkened room why was life so unkind. 
But my dad came to the rescue and placed in my hand one day 
two white buttons and revealed to me a game he used to play. 
 
“Yes I’d throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and I’d search until I found them in my quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons and they somehow kept me sane 
till I found a little peace of mind and was your dad again. 
 
“Still we’ve shared a lot of years since then and son you’re now a man 
and I know you love your family and do the best you can. 
I do not have much to leave you just these worn out buttons lad 
and the knowledge that I loved you and was proud to be your dad.” 

Then his hand slumped off the rocker and dad’s spirit left that night 
and him lying there and free of pain was such a peaceful sight. 
Though at night I’d sit there in the dark, depressed and feeling blue, 
till I took to throwing buttons, just like my dad used to do.   
 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons in the black void of that room 
and I’d search until I found them in my quest to beat the gloom. 
Yes I’d throw those two white buttons and they somehow kept me sane 
and I thanked my dad and grandpa for those buttons on that chain.

Heart Twist

Early this morning, sitting in my car, 
Watching my son at swim team practice,
I see the flash and splash of water
Arms slicing in perfect synchonicity.

The sun glints off their shimmering bodies,
The kids' movement through the water, cleaving,
Their faces almost beatific, as if they are giding on a silvery path
which opens up before them, allowing smooth passage.

The smell of chlorine, wet cement and sunscreen
Wafts through my nostrils, bringing memories of a distant time
(mothers waiting for dripping offspring, dry towels ready)
Piercing my total being with bittersweet longing.

My son heads in my direction and my attention
Is grabbed by his youthfulness and innocence,
Still a boy, not yet a man, my small man-child is
Caught in the middle somewhere between the two.

Big smile on his sun-freckled face
Blond hair tinged green with chlorine,
Skinny arms and legs akimbo,
Couldn't be more beautiful to me.

I give his sun-warmed body a brief squeeze
Before he pulls away, embarrassed, but
I see a small smile appear on his lips as his eyes meet mine,
And I am happily content.

These moments are sweetly fleeting,
But are stored in my heart forever.

Rising from the Ashes.

I'm sitting here in this room
these four walls are closing in.
All i do is sit and think
about the things that might have been.
What could I've done,
what should I've done
to change the ending to this story?
what could i do,
what i should do
so this pain does not destroy?
i fall. 
I pray.
I beg forgiveness.
I stand. 
I rise. 
I feel God's presence.
I'm cleansed.
I'm free.
I am a new creation.
All these feelings rising inside, 
love, trust, happiness, pure elation.
The old me burns away,
the new me rises out.
Each and every step ordained by God Himself without a doubt.
He made me in His image of this I'm sure,
and I make a declaration today,
with a heart that's true and pure.
To do God's will and praise His name in everything I do,
and because of His love I will never be the same,
nor would I want to.
To continue on the path that i was following would be foolish and unwise,
so here i go one foot in front of the other,
and from these ashes I will rise.

the stars are brighter on the outside (of the world)

a view of my current state of mind
minus the tour guide
rather the annoying person who acts like they know it all
but really doesn't have a clue

sometimes i think i might just be one mood swing away from doing something incredibly stupid

maybe this is the creative breakthrough we've all been waiting for
probably just another breakdown from another underachiever

i've been waiting a year for something good to happen
my whole life is divided by a series of time spent waiting
multiplied by many slips and falls

beginning to think that maybe this storybook ending is for the birds and not the boys

i've been longing for an adventure
but to busy planning a funeral for my greatest failure

i'm well aware that i think way too much
when more time is spent on thoughts than on make outs (houston) we have a problem

can't help but feel like the world is passing me by in the night
i struggle just to get out of bed every day and start it over

what if 3am didn't exsist?

i forgot what the morning looks like when you wake up to it
compared to beating it to a sunrise.

life as of late
sleeping less and thinking more
working my way out of certain tendencies by lying to myself

everything i do is as pretend as you make me feel

Suicidal as Kings

I couldn’t tell you why I died
I couldn’t reason with your hurt
I know you’d like to know 
Why I couldn’t further my efforts

Time tears ripples in us, you know
And nothing seems to last forever
So you might as well get over it 
And the rain continues its descent 

Here’s to the tyranny of we men
I’d kill myself on paper
With only revolvers left to spin
But only my sorrow leaks 
From within the quivers of my pen 

I can touch a little bit of Listerine
I can’t seem to get my hands on my liquor
Will someone tell me exactly what it’s about
Or will the weather wash away my doubt 

I used to think I was unbreakable
Now I just want to sooth my sore throat
Why don’t you have another cigarette? 
And all your fears you just may forget 

Here’s to the tyranny of we men
I’d kill myself on paper
Evolving my thoughts to an end
But only my sorrow leaks 
From within the quivers of my pen 

I couldn’t move you 
From the vaults of your worries
I tried but I couldn’t save you
We are but suicidal kings

Free From Restraint

Free from the cages
Which trapped so many
for such long ages
Run now

Freedom
Is such a glorious thing
No longer oppressed
or enslaved to another's will
The world is yours now
Fly to the ends of this world
Swim in the depths

Limitless and free
You cannot be stopped by anyone
With your new found strength
You gain self pride
Reasons to fight for life
Pushing on through never ending strife
You'll know pure happiness
When it all comes to an end

So for you there is not much to say
After you live this way
You see the barriers that were created
Laying in rubble all around you
You're escape has arrived
It did not come from the sky

You hold the lock and key
Turn the switch and be free
See the brilliance of yourself
That you are everything that was
You are all that will be
None hold sway over your mind

The time of end is nigh
You've said all good-byes
Slowly consumed by it
You'll live on in spirit
To endure yet another journey

Continue on
My ever vigilant friends
Take all in life
and change it for yourself
You are the one true thing
In this whole domain
Never forget you are divine

Mama Told Me

mama tell me the story again
for I know my redeemer liveth 
and walketh upon his higher ground in graceland
let there be peace on earth mama
as we kneel and pray beside
this old rugged cross
let's celebrate new life
and sacrifice to be born again
mama what a friend we have in jesus
for he makes us feel complete
as I get a second chance
thru devotion
my lord I was made to worship you
as I need thee every hour
for morning has broken
and I'm free to be me
for this too shall pass
as christ the lord is risen and
now watches over my family
for I know lord you are thy healer
who can take it all away
so mama turn your eyes upon jesus
as awesome is the lord most high

Everybody Play For The Lord

CH.	Everybody play for the Lord.  Everybody play for the Lord.  Shout for joy, clap 
your hands.  Everybody play for the Lord.

VI.	Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.  That’s what the Bible says to do.  We will 
worship God through and through everybody play for the Lord.

VII.	Praise Him with a harp, praise Him with a trumpet.  Praise Him with the cymbals, 
and anything that’s good.

scene in daze

Can’t keep my mind steady
Paranoid about where I’m headed
Asking me why I changed 
I tried not to
But at the time
It seemed inevitable
Leaving spectators  to judge my heart
Tell me was it credible
Rumors become curtesy of lynching’s
Secular thoughts 
trapped in traditional dimensions 
Trying to make it to a new year
Upon completion of duel semesters
But I can’t with draw from beefing 
With these crooked city officials 
Going through what I’m going through
I look to the future 
And wonder how I’ll make it financially 
My conscience is ignoring the thought
Leaving the reality of the subject
To answer me 
I’m paying my taxes 
Yet still in courtrooms 
I’m awaiting legal faxes 
Brutalized and feeling less than human
Thinking to myself, “I’ll stack my riches”
And in twenty years you’ll see a new man
Sleeping with a pistol 
Awaking by every wind that whistles 
it's become less considerable 
to maintain a comfort at ease 
Contemplating going to war against individuals 
I know I can’t beat
But my refusal to allow them 
To bring me to my knees 
Has brought warmth to my shoulders and sleeves
Caught up in traffic can I escape detainment
It appears that I missed  a court arraignment 
Maybe it’s my suffering that you call entertainment
Got a phone call from a love 
In Wisconsin, running in the snow
Said she was wondering how I was 
Wishing me a happy new years
And wondering how things were going 
In the open Monroe
She giggled and told me 
She was reminiscing of us cuddled up 
Snacking on cheese curdles 
She laughed and said I miss you
I laughed and said 
I see you still smile like an untouched pearl

Enough Said

The end is coming fast, I'm almost in its grasp, 
aghast, so short of breath, running from 
death, he's on my heels, too late to kneel and pray, 
nothing left to say, anyway, been dead 
inside for most of the ride, tried to hide, 
tried to know joy, briefly when he was a boy, 
gonna' miss my kids, and my twin-soul, leave a big hole,
 took him for a ride, took him 
inside, better to have loved and lost, despite the cost, I guess,
 so depressed, the secret 
that I've kept
 from our marriage bed is that... I'm already dead, 'nough said.

VERY SICK OF THE FLU

I find hard to move around,
dragging my aching body,
unable to do even the simplest chores...
yes, I am very sick of flu:
it's something I can't undo!


I will not go to the hospital,
lie in a comfortable bed for hours,
coughing and sneezing waiting for a call...
while spreading this virus and infecting others.


I'm missing out on brisk walks  
that keep my immune system healthy,
and no blues frustrate me more than loneliness...
come spring and let joy renew itself in this memory.   

 
My remedy is Robitussin by far,
a miraculous cure for cold symptoms,
and since I can't go out, or drive my car...
I indulge myself in the creation lyrics.


It's my first day back to work,
I'm drinking coffee, and I shouldn't,
but these headaches won't go away...
unless I smell it, sip it and dream away.

And glory

Sweet, exceedingly sweet the day
Under the shadow of the Rock
No drought comes nor storms disarray
And praises fill the little flock
And glory with the rising sun
And glory praising Christ the son 

Sweet, exceedingly sweet the day
Around God's gladsome mercy seat
The winters done, no passing May
The song triumphant scorns defeat
And glory with the rising sun
And glory praising Christ the son 

Cho.
You know I just want to sing glory
My soul overflows with glory
My heart thank you all in glory
For its coming down, coming down
Copious showers of glory
And before glory bow me down

WONDERING WHERE LOVE WENT

I relayed on trust
more than affection;
watching every move,
instead of watching the flowers slowly bloom.


Wondering where love went,
chasing after the illusion
of bringing it back where it was;
and realizing the impossibility, I'm so saddened.


You wanted more than understanding,
warm hands to hold and the fire of desire...
to let you ride on your fantasy star;
and I regret all that I didn't give you with real feeling.


Wondering where love went,
and what is the lesson that 
life has taught me? Never wait
for others, just trust your instinct and shun every doubt.


Wondering where love went,
seeing happy lovers, engaging in romance,
who they have found their paradise; 
I was looking for mine in someone whom I didn't love enough...

Some Day (You)

Some day, maybe next week.
Maybe even thirty years from now.
We're gonna find somebody to count on.
Someone who can share our dreams
Make the impossible possible...
When that day is here...

Tears like rain are gonna fall down.

Not every moment has to be perfect.
But when the times become rough
Being with you, the hardships seems so small

And the smiles will heal.

Every day when the sun will rise
I'll turn to you and watch you wake.
I know the day will be alright.

Don't you know...

Some day, maybe next week.
Maybe even thirty years from now.
We're gonna find somebody to count on.
Someone who can share our dreams
Make the impossible possible...
When that day is here...

I'll find you.

Make Believe

Verse 1:  I know that I made a lot of mistakes/ and it's too late/ to fix things/ and 
I'm trying to start a fresh anew/ but you keep telling me we're through/ and I'm 
telling you-u-u/ 

Chorus:  Why can't we just pretend/ so we can start over again/ like things never 
happened/ but no matter how hard I try for us to be/ it'll just be make believe/ it'll 
just be make believe/

Verse 2:  i can understand why/ you can't get over what I did/ and I know it hurts/ 
I'm putting salt all over your burns/ but I can't help what I feel inside/ I want you 
back In my life/ i know you still love me/ so don't tell me/ that this is just make 
believe-eve/

Chorus: 3x

somewhere to go

the wind that creeps
that softly speaks
that constantly weeps
which loudly pleads
its case to be free

the sky of gray
sky of gray
treacherous days
treacherous days
this wretched phase
in which i fade

the storm that howls
from seven sea
the rebel cries of revelry
the trees that whisper
their tales to tell
the ring of bells still frightens me


give your pain a sheltered hide
look for vision in the sky
let all of the people know
behind the sky is a place to go

keep on running
keep on keepin' now
you've got to keep escapin'
the beasts are on the prowl
the beasts are on the prowl
And they're comin' now

Just for You

Every day I'm fallen to the inside
Wonder just how long can I hide
Stirring through these memories just one time
Hearing voices but none of them are mine
Stumble through the pages of a mystery
That's my life I need out of this misery
I wanted you
To need me like I've needed you
Just for me
And you've wanted me 
To let go of what I need from you
Just for you
Now I see you for what I truly am
I need you to know this is who I am
Given you my all asked for no return
Careful what you ask for lesson learned
Now you ask me to be by your lonely side
When all that's left now is lonely pride
All that I needed from you is to know why I need you
All that I'm getting from you is that you need me to cry to
I wanted you
To need me like I've needed you
Just for me
And you've wanted me
To let go of what I need from you
Just for you
Just for you

Bubba Spent the Night

Our son asked can a friend stay over
He just moved here from dover
The friend says tonight's Friday, usually we have pig's innards
He says my name is Cleetus Billy Joe Jim Bob Jones, after he stutters out his 
name, it's time for dinner
But you can call me Bubba, he seems very polite
I pray no nightmares as Bubba spends the night
I tell him we are having Makerel Cakes and Mac and Cheese
He says I will take four cakes and two helpings if you please
Boy you sure do have an appetite
I tell my son our budget won't allow Bubba to ever again spend the night
Soon dinner is over and Bubba still wants to eat
I grab a funnel and melted bacon fat and tell him to have a seat
He says we eat fatback soup sometimes on a weekday
He tells me the doctor tells his whole family, that sometime their arteries will turn 
to clay
bubba says I don't eat for calories, I eat for taste
I tell Bubba, if you keep eating like that you will become hazardous waste
He laughs and cheers in delight
This all happened when Cleetus Billy Joe Jim Bob Jones spent the night
At 2 am he asks for a snack
I give him a sleeve of Ritz crackers and a pound of Monterey Jack
I hand him a jar of Grey Puopon
He says after I eat this, there may be trouble in your john
He smiles and asks for a Diet Coke
I try to watch my health, I don't drink or smoke
Eight more hours, then our budget will be alright
He asks when is the next time I can spend the night

Your the best

You turned water into to wine you gave sight to the blind, you split the red sea, your the truth undefined lord you are good, you provide my every need, your a god who is bigger, than any mountain or tree, everything i got, comes from the god in me, he's the sunshine in my life, through him i got the victory, he is so miraculous, with words i can't express, he's the truth and he light, to follow him is the best, his love for me is undescribable, although i mess up, he's so reliable, he's there for me, through this an that, Jesus always has my back, he never leaves me out to hang, to Jesus im his main thang, i serve a god who is above all others, who cares for me, like the care of a mother, he is the best, no, i would never serve another

THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST FROM THE DEAD

Easter has a profound significance...
the resurrection of Christ from the dead,
and after Lent, there's no abstinence or penance;
sacrificed, as prophesied was the Pascal Lamb!
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray! 


Easter begins at sunrise
and the faithful sing with triumphant voices,
to glorify the unblemished
Lamb of God so hallowed and reigning!
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray! 


Christ, the worthy Lamb, was slain
and now He has risen from Hell,
paying with His shed blood our iniquities in full...
and whoever follows Him will be greatly rewarded! 
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray!


There stands, on His Heavenly throne, 
the Word revealed to us on the day of resurrection...
not scourged and crucified on the hill of Calvary,
but raised and glorified by the Father of eternity!
With true meekness I pray,...
Lord, take all my sins away!


He died for our sake, and love was His gift,
and as divine as He was, He even endured thirst;
let's dwell in His holy temple that man's malevolence
can't ever tear down or menace with vindictiveness!
Lord, take all my sins away...
with true meekness I pray!

Edge

Saw the world in mommy's eyes
Through the blood and tears she cries
Now I have to sell my soul 
To the fingers around her throat

(When no one's around)

The devil's in the walls
The devil's in the walls
The devil's in the walls
Do you wanna be alone?

Point and laugh till you're pushed in
Sins of the father are stories for children
But if you want to live at all
Innocence will take the fall

Daddy was a lesson learned
Rather go away and spread his word
To anyone willing to hear
Ones who love have too much fear

(When no one's around)

The devil's in the walls
The devil's in the walls
The devil's in the walls
Do you wanna be alone?

Point and laugh till you're pushed in
Sins of the father are stories for children
But if you want to live at all
Innocence will take the fall

Peace of Mind

VI.	When I read the Bible, for the first time in my life.  His word spoke to me and I 
found peace of mind.  I got down on my knees and asked Him in my heart.  It was a new 
way to start when I found peace of mind.

CH.	I found peace of mind, when I found Jesus.  It was like a shining light that shined 
down into me.  I started living right everyday and every night, I found peace of mind, when I 
found Jesus.

VII.	I went to church on that Sunday, and sat down in the pew, to hear the preacher 
preach about the words that Jesus said.  And it all came back to me, when I never believed.  
I found peace of mind, when I found Jesus.

Bridge	I talk a new talk, and I walk a new walk.  I help the ones less fortunate than me.  
Lord help me understand, I give all to You, I found peace of mind, when I found Jesus.

TRIBUTE TO YOU'RE MOTHER

TRIBUTE TO YOU’RE MOTHER


AS OUR RELATIONSHIP GREW IT BECAME QUITE CLEAR
THERE WAS A “SPECIAL LADY” IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU HELD VERY DEAR
IT WASN’T SO MUCH WHAT YOU SAID; IT’S WHAT YOU DIDN’T SAY
SO I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A TALK WITH HER, 
ONLY IF I MAY

TO MOM

I KNOW YOU HAVEN’T MET ME, BUT I KNOW SOMEDAY YOU WILL, 
YOU HAVE A “SPECIAL SON”, MY HEART HE DOES FULFILL
IF NOT FOR YOU, THERE WOULD NOT BE AN US
PLEASE LET ME EXPLAIN, IF I MAY EARN YOUR TRUST
THE DAY YOUR SON WALKED IN MY LIFE, HE BROUGHT SUNSHINE ON A 
RAINY DAY
HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DREAM TO ME, WITH HIM I FOUND MY DESTINY
THERE IS NO OTHER SUCH AS HE, MY LIFE IS HAPPY AND MY HEART IS FREE
HE MISSES YOU AS I’M SURE YOU KNOW, I TALK TO HIM AND HIS FEELINGS 
SHOW
THE DAY YOU LEFT YOU BROKE HIS HEART, FOR I AM HERE TO LOVE HIM, 
BUT BE YOU I’M NOT.....
I’M NOT PERFECT, BUT I TRY TO BE, 
FOR I HOPE YOU DON’T MIND, HE GAVE HIS HEART TO ME
I LOVE HIM MORE THAN ANYONE, HE’S THE REASON I’M ALIVE
SEE THERE WAS I TIME IN MY LIFE, WHEN I DIDN’T CARE IF I SURVIVED 
IT WAS GONNA TAKE A MIRACLE, FOR ME TO CHANGE MY MIND
SO GOD SENT ME AN “ANGEL”, YOUR SON SHOWED UP JUST IN TIME.
HE HAS THIS LOVE ABOUT HIM MY HEART HAS NEVER KNOWN,
SO “THANK YOU” FOR SHARING HIM, THROUGH YOU I FOUND MY HOME
I HOPE AND PRAY THAT I AM JUST A “TOUCH”
OF A WOMAN LIKE YOU WHOM HE ADMIRES SO MUCH
WITH SINCERE LOVE AND RESPECT

SPIRITS AT THEIR DOORSTEPS

Chilly October has quickly brought in
another spirited, indelible Holloween;
allowing our witty and insane minds 
to plan the craziest, wildest things.


Witches, wizards, goblins and ghosts
all join in to give a bone-chilling night;
I put on a custom so dazzlingly white,
to scare anyone who laughs and boasts.


This ghost is never spoken of in any tale,
unknown by name, leaving no easy trail;
the only thing he does well is making sneers,
and send everyone scrambling with screams.


How frightened and pale these kids must really be,
when they cuddle up in their beds and can't sleep,
thinking of those spirits at their doorsteps;
lots of fun and delight at their expense...

Heart

WOW, are you kidding me!!! Someone already beat me to your heart?!
Let me be Omarion and show you to my heart!
Comfort I can bring, feelings I can show, & my love you already know.
I worked hard for this chance. The one I never got. The one that I deserve!
I just keep on falling into a deeper pit! Ain't no way that I can be your boy!
You shut me down like I was a light turned on, just to make you feel safer.
You definitely make ME feel safer. Can you believe me when I say that I'm ok that you fell
for someone that lives closer to your heart?

DEFINITELY

Definitely, these eyes used to charm me away,
they made me fall in love so quickly;
no, I didn't mind anyway!


Memories are as lasting as gold can really be,
there are no tears without goodbye;
now, I ask you to reconsider me!


You shouldn't have to go,
I'm too sure you would stay:
you can live in my song; 
o how I would shout my hooray!


Definitely, I am that man who loves to say...
how you need his arms to dream away;
oh, just let him take you away!


You shouldn't have to go,
I'm too sure you would stay:
you can live in my song;
o how I would shout my hooray!

Someday

 Somewhere I have you in my arms.
  Sometimes I can feel you in the wind.
 Maybe someday I will see you again.
  Until that day comes I'll be here.
 Now is the time to tell you that I am sorry,
  for the days that I didnt get to spend with you.
 Please forgive me and know that my heart is true.
  Know that forever it will be just you and me.
 I wish I would have said so much more.
  Wish I would have been there from before.
 Wish I knew what could ease your mothers pain.
   We would laugh and we would sing to the song 
  the good lord has sang to us,and take us to the
   land where you await.
 Maybe someday I will see you again,until that day 
   comes I'll be here.
 She walks across through the room to the window and stares
  at the cold dark night that lays outside.
 She wants him to return to her arms.
  Please know sweet Dylan that I feel the same way.
 Maybe someday,someday.

Walkin Alone

When feet move
I seperate
What they do
I go my way
Mind is set
Following voice
cant go left
that is my choice

walkin alone
walkin alone

They follow the herd
Just like sheep
Stay true to my word
I only follow me
Keeping it real
Im telling the truth
This is how i feel
How about you?

walkin alone
walkin alone

One lost soul
Can somebody find me
Internaly cold
So tired of finding
my way to home 
Icant give in
Cant follow the herd
This is harder
Than capturing the bird

walkin alone
walkin alone

Soundtrack To My Life

When you play a little Marvin Gaye,
And you mix it up with some Tupac.
You throw in a little Whitney and then
You add just a little Mariah Carey,
Some Ludacris, Some Mary Mary.
Throw in some Fred Hammond,
Aaliyah, Tank, Kirk Franklin,
And Raheem Devaugn's "Woman".
A little Dwele and Common,
Mos Def, Avant and
Gym Class Heroes.
Play some Ray Charles,
Heart, Queen, Ella Fitzgerald,
Paramore, Hawthorne Heights, Musiq Soulchild,
Poison, Case, Rascal Flatts,
Etta James, Louis Armstrong and mix that
With a little DMX and Christina Aguilera,
Destiny's Child, Timbaland the hitmaker,
Chris Brown, Anthony Hamilton, J Moss, Jill Scott.
Mix it up and then you've got
The soundtrack to my life.

Side-Kicks

Rabbit was my turtle who never won a race
Red is my fish but he's blue in the face
And I love my pets but they do no tricks
So I play all day and sleep at night with my sidekicks

My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!  My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!
Sometimes we stand on bricks, play swords with sticks
Sometimes we have tools for fixin', lollipops for lickin'
But when it's time quit and switch, they're still my fav clique
My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!  My sidekicks~ Wa! Cha!   (Chorus)

Smokey is my cat and I love him too
Got a little kitty, named her Crystal blue
And another fish in a bowl I call Fins
But they do no tricks, so I play with my sidekicks again

I got Teddy and Roy and my bulldog Bully
And at bath time I get to dunk my pal Sully
Then there's Croc but is he an alligator
And Fishy is orange, before I see you later
I gotta tell ya Mr. Duck is now Mr. Quacks
But my favs of all time is Tang Tang and Scratch

And though they're stuffed animals~ they do all the tricks
Like my play friend Jerry- they're my sidekicks

(Chorus)

Untitled #278 / Stranger

When I saw your face
I crept out of my quiet place
and saw the light of day
but it’d been so long
since I saw the sun
and I didn’t know what to say

I’m no stranger to this feeling
I’m no stranger to love
but I’m a stranger to a heart that’s true
and I’m a stranger to you

When I heard them say your name
I thought it was my own
and I dreamt we were two marble statues
cut from the same stone

I’m no stranger to this feeling
I’m no stranger to love
but I’m a stranger to a heart that’s true
and I’m a stranger to you

So I’ll crawl back to my quiet place
and wait for the sun to rise
maybe someday I’ll see your love shining through
in someone else’s eyes

I’m no stranger to this feeling
I’m no stranger to love
but I’m a stranger to a heart that’s true
and I’m a stranger to you

I’m no stranger to this feeling
I’m no stranger to love
but I’m a stranger to a heart that’s true
and I’m a stranger to you
to you

Strong Tower (A Song for Caleb)

In the time-
That I'm afraid-
I will call-
Upon His Name
For in the times-
I have been brave-
I have called-
Upon His Name  (Chorus)

The name of the Lord, the name of the Lord
The name of the Lord's Strength and Power
The name of the Lord, the name of the Lord
The name of the Lord's a Strong Tower

And the righteous will run in it and be safe
The righteous will run in it and be saved

In the time-
That I'm afraid-
I will call-
Upon His Name
For in the times-
I have been brave-
I have called-
Upon His Name  (Chorus)

A Good Example, Of Being a Man


A good example, of being a man
O, from Jesus, God’s beloved son
Would you not like to take a share? 
Of His graces, for us, He prepared

Be thankful, for the life, he gave you
Yes, O yes, be thankful, and be true

A good example, of being a man
O, heed the calling of the Holy One
Would you not listen when he speak?
For in Him, the true life, that we seek

His scriptures, from them never depart
Yes, O, yes, bind them all in your heart

My Wig (

We leave on vacation to see the Grand Canyon 
I ask my son when is the last time ha changed his socks, his feet smell like 
salmon 
My wife laughs and says that isn't his feet, it's his breath 
I tell her no more equate toothpaste, we're switching to Crest 
My wife says in a panicky voice, I forgot my social life line 
I tell her to calm down, everything will be fine 
She says, turn around and head toward home with the speed of a Russian Mig 
We can't take this trip, I can't be without my wig 
One hour and two tickets later we finally arrive back home 
Now she has her wig in hand and her voice has a nice, calm tone 
She says what are we waiting for, let's be on our way 
It's only 9:30am, it's already been a long, long day 
Now we are back to the area where we had to turn around 
I remember that singles club called Lost and Found 
As evening settles in, we stop by an eatery called The Autumn Twig 
She says please bear with me as I put on my wig 
My son and I sit in the car quietly, as we are close to death from a lack of food 
My wife tells us let's enjoy our vacation, you two need to adjust your attitudes 
We sit in the car and watch as people come out of this greasy spoon diner 
I keep reading their slogan, If you're lookin' for rib stickin' food ain't none finer 
I keep having these visions of me at the table, eating so much, my wife and son 
call me a pig 
Finally she is done fixing her wig 
I watch in horror as the Diner's lights go off 
My dream is gone, no pig, no trough 
She says in disgust, that's just great, where can we get a bite to eat now 
I tell her about a barbecue joint five up the road called Four Sides of a Cow 
She says okay, but I could not belive what she just did 
She smiles and says I told you everything will be okay, as she removes her wig 
We arrive outside the place rated as some of the best barbecue around 
She throws her wig on the dash and laughs like a circus clown 
She says my hunger has taken over, I believe she's flipped her lid 
She says let's go on inside, these people don't know me, they have never seen 
me without my wig

My Buttercup

smooth fashion eyes flashing
girls wanting love passion
guitar talking fingers walking
such a cutie
glad I'm his beauty

center stage screaming rage
girls dancing in nearby cage
ya

Let's give it up
Let's give it up
hold me closer now
I can hardly breath
Let's give it up
Let's give it up
for the one
the only one 
my sweet buttercup

my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup

illuminating eyes 
makes me sigh
other girls shouting
even some pouting
so glad I'm at his outing

For I'm so into him

Let's give it up
Let's give it up
hold me closer now
I can hardly breath
Let's give it up
Let's give it up
for the one
the only one 
my sweet buttercup

my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup
my sweet buttercup

Tribute To Love

Son of Babylon

A night of sinful seduction
Lust without protection
A self-destructive woman
and a one night stand
Baby’s conception
nothing more than a mistake
A slip in judgment 
A slight of chance
from one ill-fated
alcohol-born romance
She carries an unwanted child
Poor bastard son of Babylon
Your mother refuses to love you
Poor bastard son of Babylon
your father will never be there
Poor bastard son of Babylon
Once you’re born
the world shall scorn you
Poor bastard son of Babylon

you must be trippin

you got some other girl claimin
(she's with you)

(watcha gonna do)
it's either me or her
(who you gonna choose)
you say you love me
(i dont think it's true)

i'm sick and tired dealin with 
(men like you)
who talks a big game
(but dont come thru)
you know i love you
(but this is what you do)
curruptin a good girl
to be like you

all we do is makeup and break up
prevaricating
boy wont you shut up
this the end
yea you messed up
this situation is so fuked up

la la la la

one day i will find
a man who i can call all mine
who will treat me right
my shining handsome black night....

la la la la

"boy you must be blind"

my heart is crying
(slowly dying)
from the pain you was causing
if you think her love is as good as mine
you must be trippin
boy you must be blind

A Little Gilley

As I overlooked an orchard 
                            From my window up above
                       I send to you a room full of roses  
                            For I'm a fool for your love
                        So darlin won't ya stand by me 
                    And let's get lost in paradise tonight
                              Put your dreams away 
                   And there shall be no more lonely nights
                      Come stroll with me under the neon city lights 
                                 For that's all that matters
                                    In a true love ways 
                                Lord every waking hour 
                            She's pulling me back again
               For a headache tomorrow or a headache tonight 
                 Come on and  just bring it on home to me
                            For love you don't know me 
                       And don't all the girls get prettier

Dancing In The Streets

Come on come on  everybody bounce bounce bounce with me
I am a hot stepper can't nobody hold me down so set me free
Everbody  Jam Jam upon sugar hill 
let your step be on a maximun overdrive skill
Quit Quit crying in the rain 
Po folks downing purpil pills with cheap champagne
Seen my girl on T.V 
looking starry eyed and a little dizzy dizzy
Come on Come on let's keep it up 
let the whole world keep filling our cup
Rumble rumble in the jungle 
let this magic wand not let you stumble
This ghetto love got to get it  
Westside Eastside let's see it fit
For your going to fly now  
like a sweet escape electric salsa fowl
No more football on T.V.
hit the streets a dance you shall see
Got to get one more time  
try and keep up with this rhythm and rhyme
Hate it or love it  I'm going to be alright 
just stay with me just one more night
If ya getting down 
I'll be there to wipe that frown
Don't cry tonight 
Mr. Wendle luv you better with your runaway fiddle
So here we go once again
 dancing and grooving 
to a life on the streets  spin

endless fall

I'm searching for some peace
In this seemingly souless mind
trying to figure out
if it will all end with just a little time

I was afraid to love you 
and now I've lost it all
such an empty feeling
such an endless fall

You know i've lost a lover 
you know I've lost a son
I've lost the best part of me
oh God what have I done

So give me the strength
please help me find a was
to get past this empty feeling 
to make it through another day.

Always And Forever Mom

Always thinking of my son,

He's still my number one.

I really want to be his mom,

Not thought of as the other.

Pray he’ll stay, kind & strong.

I’ll never change my love 4 him,

Will get his back, not on a whim.

With hard work, & steady trust,

He’ll see my love, come back, he must.

We missed some time, must make it up,

Today I vow, to refill that cup.

Be strong 4 him, be there 4 Ever,

Be that mom, he can LOVE & TREASURE!!!


Details | Lyric | |

Do This I Must

Do my time, 4 a made up crime,

To do this, I write in rhyme.

I learned to live, can never trust,

To get anywhere, Do This I Must.

Cuz up till now, I trusted all,

Those people whom, would come or call.

They take advantage, & keep me down,

Took phones & cars, felt like I’d drown.

Over & over, I let this happen,

If I could sing, I would be rappn'.

Still my life sucks, but could be worse,

I could be dead, & in a hearse.

I’ve already lived 9 lives times 2,

Sometimes it seems, will never be through.

That’s why I’m here, for much needed rest,

To get back the strength, to be the best.

Mom to my son must regain his trust,

As stated B4, Do This I Must.

To teach my son, right from wrong,

This will be so easy, done the latter so long.

This too will change, I promise dat,

To start from scratch, like 1st time at bat.

New clothes, new car, to travel far,

Will do my best, to pass the bar.

Start a new life, all on my own.

Contact my son, by e-mail or phone,

Be there 4 him, just like my own.

He’s a big boy now, just not full grown,

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,

Will take 50 lashes, but Do This I Must!

Come Up Here!

Rise up!  Rise up and Come up here
Because Jesus Christ is ready to appear
The Day of Judgment is drawing near
So rise up!  Before He says come up here  (Chorus)

A time will come, and now it is
When those who are dead
Will hear the Son of God's voice
And those who hear, they shall live
For the Life in Christ quickens
Those who make Him their choice

   Because the life the Father has to make the dead arise
   He has granted to his Son to give unto them
   Who are pleased to cross over from death unto life
   But you must believe in Christ and live your life for him

A time will come, so marvel not
When those who are in their graves
Will hear the Lord's voice
And everyone of them shall come out
To receive judgment or reward
 According to their own choice

   Those who have done good shall resurrect unto God's life
   But those who have done evil shall only rise to be condemned
   So to enter in the Gate and walk the Way you must strive
   Remember this, if he doesn't come first, he may call you to Him
   
Rise up!  Rise up and Come up here
Because Jesus Christ is ready to appear
The Day of Judgment is drawing near
So rise up!  Before He says come up here  (Chorus)

I Am Your Son, Father


I am your son, Father
From the throne of your graces
I beg thee, your love, upon me outpour

I am your son, Father
With contrite heart, I plead
Help me endure all the sufferings
You set upon my soul

I am your son, Father
From pains and sorrows
Lift me into thy throne

I am your son, Father
Thy command, I will follow 
Thou I may lose all my wealth, I’ll live
But, not without you


Details | Lyric | |

Oh, Father

Oh, Itay what made you 
blow 
your cigar smoke over that red feathered rooster 
and washed it with gin tonic?
Will that make him brave to defeat his foe?

Which poet inspired you 
to rhyme 
on Sunday morn, delighting those surround you, 
making them listen, again and again?

To which god you belong
and made you smile everyday, not worrying 
the cares of the day?

Tell me…who designed you 
and made me a replica?

I love you, Itay!

I Lost My Arguments, With The Gods

I lost my arguments, with the gods
and sage man Apolinar, 
decided to leave, whose humbleness
should be immortalized, as it deserves,
by those who have been touched by him. Though, he 
never asked for an epitaph, to be engraved, 
in his beloved islands,
yet I, being disobedient and predictable, I changed 
his thought, with help from his charmed 
rice wine that I shouted in despair---

“O children of Apolinar, 
let it be known to y’all, that the sage man
decided to leave; neither be dismayed nor be saddened, 
instead, rise on your feet and go---
sail from island to island, spread his legacy. He was a good citizen of the 
islands. And, the best thing
of all, he was my dearest father...
and I cherished him, more than the gods!”

Young Mind

Barely six years old, when he talked 
to the evening sea, to the moon and the stars 
yet, I am without doubt that in yesteryears 
I had and enjoyed the very same passion

It seems an appreciation at most
and I’ve spoken about my own in the past
so I have had great time, flaunting it
I had and enjoyed the very same passion

If 
hardly have I pushed the brain 
to whisper awhile, this so-called writer’s block 
is not a big deal. Oh, there he is, sitting 

Head slightly bent at my father’s table
I read, by heart, every word that comes out 
through his pen. And, in his young mind--- 
I feel once more, the muse I loved, glowing


Details | Lyric | |

i recall

i recall when we first met
it was the night of christmas eve
you were sitting on your front porch
i walked by and you smiled at me

i still feel the way
you felt for me
wanting you more
than you wanted me
i remeber the times you showed me
how truly love can be...

theres not a day,
you dont cross my mind,
wishing i could rewind,
back the time,
correct the mistakes, i've made
so you can still be mine

oooh

i recall, bedtime stories
i recall, midnight kisses
i recall, my life ambition
was loving you, giving you effection...


to be cont....

More than a Rapper

this is real life
this is late night posted by the street lights
i had to take my life into my own hands, i'm not a child
live my life like a grown man, i take a bow
cause i made it through the trails and tribulations, was trapped
holdin' crack vales, duckin' incarceration, relax
cause i'm smarter than the hardest rapper, he too emotional
i'm like a hood college rapper, you take it personal
i'm asmatic, i gotta addict in the hallway
he said for a gram he'll merk you in the doorway
but don't blame, that's the way the streets raised us
ridin' to church wit a fiend on the same bus
i'm dead broke, got no change for the church cup
a tight suit, old shoes and they blame us
so how they figure that the drugs won't 'gon change us
when daddy drank all the money that they gave us
my uncle stealing out the house like he hate us
he buyin' crack but police wanna cage us
i'll get it back when i cop me some powder
cook it up, then i hop in the shower
bag it up, now the block is my power
$20 for a half a gram
i done the work, cop some groceries to feed my fam
i know it hurts when your mamma gotta be the man
i'm from the dirty, i'm much more than a rapper man

unsolved

it's still a mystery
unsolved-thats me

you'll be still be lookin up to me

until you fill the other part of me

they call me the...

Withering Hearts

Withering Hearts

My heart cries out 
the pain is too much to bare
It can not hold back
shattering into a thousand pieces
The sword pirece my soul
Ripping it to shreads
Soundless tears
streaming from my eyes
for there is no voice
that can express my anguish
I hold inside
is ready to come out
you are gone from me
out of reach forever
but not gone forever
my chances to express
my love to a child
that I brought into this world
have not disappeared into oblivon
into the cold and dark cave
I feel right now
my dreams are of us
now blown away like dust
I hold tightly to the memories
for that you have not left me
I am now a shadow to you
I am now a shadow to myself
I miss you so deeply
I get depressed just thinking about this forced to exist
day by day
all the time wishing
to hold you
to love you
I can do more
I have changed
see that oh why
I would love to lie with you
be a friend
be somebody
Just one more time
I just sit here in the cold grave forever.

Why?

Why do I worry so much?
Maybe because of rainy days?
Why do I cry so much?
Maybe because summer is over?
Why do I yearn for so much?
Maybe because my past years have gone?
No, I worry, cry, and yearn so much
because my son 
is not with me now.

tears and rain

standing in the pouring rain
while tears runnin down my face
wonderin what i did to you
baby girl i love you

this a mix of tears and rain
girl you got me walking in the rain
i know i did no wrong to you
i know its not me, its you
repeat2x:

im walking down the streets
people looking at me
walking in the rain
they probably think im crazy

i open the door
you going outta control
pictures of you and me
scattered on the floor

tell me what you want from me
tell me what do you need
if you dont want me
you can pick up and leave

tell me a reason
for your actions
you put me out the car
in a wet situation

this a mix of tears and rain
you go me standing in the rain
i know i did no wrong to you
do you love me like  love you

breakdown:
this a mix of tears and rain
(oh)
tears and rain
this a mix of tears and rain 
(oh)
tears and rain

fade out:
tell me what you want from me
tell me what do you need
if you dont love me
you can pick up and leave

"this a mix of tears and rain"

youre once in a lifetime

theres one in a million
baby boy-you once in a lifetime
(oh)
theres one in a million
baby boy-you once in a lifetime

(oh)

with kisses i say
i creep with you-into the night
youre the sun in my day
i love everything about you
in each and every way
you look upon me with your face
with all your grace

and send chills down my spine

no one can do it like you do
love me quite like you do
your love drew me closer to you
no one got it like you do

(oh)

theres one in a million
baby boy-you once in a lifetime
(oh)
theres one in a million
baby boy-you once in a lifetime
(oh)

played with fire

i realize it was really hard for me to see,
how could i've been so blind,
you was slowly killin me,
you played with fire,
end up hurting me,
theres no mercy,
especially coming from me

and if i do forgive
i will never forget
its something you have to live with
boy you will regret
u had your fun while it last,
now youre my past
youre a cheater and a liar,
you made urself look like an as(s)

let me tell you,im no bodies fool
but love made me blind 
i was a fool for you
now it seems, the tables have turned
so horribly you looking
i see you've learned

you loved that one
she didnt love you back
now you knocking on my door
sayin "plz take me back"

ah, you realize
you was a fool
messin up somethin
with one night or two
three,four,
stop knocking at my door,
when in fact,
step on back,
theres no comin back

i thought you was the one
the one i can trust
but i was wrong
you was a bust

you couldve been the one
my lover, my king
building an empire
just you and me

now its too bad,
it ended so sad,
didnt realize what you had,
you so gone, im glad

im better without you
unstressful
im free
you played with fire
end up hurting me
im the one and only
u had a good thing
now you cant have me

fadeout:
n-e-more....

neverending story

this song it like a neverending story
we both played a part
but you pretending
even though you a million miles away
you got me thinkin,
you still love me
not knowing that youre lyin

"neverending story"

you said it was me
but it was you
who was cheatin
changin up, everyday,
like diffrent seasons
you dissappear into the night
sleepin with diffrent creatures
with diffrent features

"this a neverending story"
break it down now!

let me tell you one thang
reggin, you say that losely
love- so overated
its beginning to lose its meaning

neverending story

neverending story...

"oh yes it is"

this song is like a neverending story
we both played a part
but you pretending
even though you a million miles away
your bestfriend keeps warning me
you pretending you love me
this a neverending story
