WHEN I STOP AND PRAY

When the storm clouds boil around me, 
And the lightning splits the sky--. 
When the howling wind assails me,
And life's sea is rolling high--
When my heart is filled with terror,
And my fears, I can't allay--
Then I find sweet peace and comfort, 
When I simply stop and pray.

When the things of life confound me,
And my faith is ebbing low--
When my trusted friends betray me,
And my heart is aching so--
When the night seems black and endless,
And I long for light of day--
Then I find a silver dawning,
When I simply stop and pray.

There are things beyond the heavens
I can't begin to understand,
But I know that God is living,
And I know He holds my hand.
Yes, I know He watches o'er me
All the night and all the day--
And He's always there to hear me
When I simply stop and pray.

ICE KING


My skin petrified, mummifying my hand
upon pools of brittle ice
like curdled blood piercing veins: I watch
the moon bathing its flesh,
 
in crystal yellow, waxing a sheen...
my pores dilate as cubes slowly melt
when this fired orb heals from above

till its velvet breath climbs into my head, 
extinguishing limbo of a daze…until I convulse in joy
when chunk-stone changes into glimmered dew.



*I held ice cubes on my palms and was transported
back to scene of one night when a high fever drowned
my senses… for some reason, viewing the glory 
of the moon relieved me from delirium…

Raindrops

Raindrops
are like my thoughts
falling down into my mind
sending goose bumps down
my spine

Their cool aftermath
cleanses me of my thoughts
of fear and uncertainty 
about what tomorrows
pain may bring

They make me feel,
wet with creativity
drenched in my optimistic
illumination. glistening
raindrops, my thoughts
leave paths of pleasurable
distress, and hope of success
which road, less traveled
may be the best

Forget an umbrella
when these raindrops
arrive, I walk outside
arms open wide

Ready to Receive
whatever
the mind storm may bring
because raindrops are
as my thoughts, falling
down into my mind
sending shivers down
my spine

My brain, yearns
for the rain, to wash away
the pain, tomorrows worry
does bring
One special drop
could speed up life's clock
to the time
I can handle my own
and not dwell inside my controllers
home

For raindrops are,
like my thoughts
falling down into my mind
sending goose bumps
down my spine

Montage Poetry

The words we use become pictures into lives
Pictures from words spread out for all to see
This is what becomes of our poetry
Has the makings of a montage to me
With words we complete many pictures
Pictures then arranged to fit in closeness
And so with our poetry I do believe
We create a montage for all to see

For Loves' Sweet Sake

We go through each and every day
With family, friends and foes but,
For loves' sweet sake
We all endure
The chaos, tears and woes

And so you think 
For loves' sweet sake
To wrestle with the dark?
Well - you will find that you've become
The bait - and food for sharks

The things you'll do 
For loves' sweet sake
Can tear your heart apart
And cause distress where none should be
Who now will mend your heart?

Now this you say to your lost love
"How could you hurt me so"?
For loves' sweet sake
I gave up all
But would not let you go

For loves' sweet sake
You'll change your life
And try to start anew
With hope, with love with charity
You'll face what comes to you

So now, my friend, consider this
And all you've sacrificed
For loves' sweet sake
You gave your all
Hey - was it worth the price?

Let's ask the One who gave up all
To enter into Strife
For loves' sweet sake
He endured the Cross
He gave up His own life

He helped us know how much we're loved
He showed us how to be
This all was done for us -
And more
For Loves' sweet sake you see

Black People

Thugs in the street with their pants hung low
White T's and Tims with two golds in the front row
Philly fades or braids, du-rags, and fitted hats
Sweat towls around the neck 
Baseball caps turned to the back

See some people would call them hoodrats 
because of where they live at
Not knowing the situation 
Seeing the problem 
Or trying to give back
Instead they just judge the book by it's cover
Instead of calling the book your brother

See if we don't stick together 
And if we don't love each other
And stop calling us women B's and Hoes
for we all know that's not the way love goes

So black people lets take a stand 
Reach out and touch your brothers hand
Lets make this world an equal place
Because we've proved that we can

Open Doors

God will open doors
Normally shut by mankind
He will make a way

For all poets

How lucky are we to have this gift of gabb 
All writers’ rush to keep notes 
With their pens and a pad 
There are many that could never see 
The wondrous talents of we 
God gave this empowerment 
For all of us to share 
For lonely and empty hearted in despair
So never draw an end to your words
Because there are so many that it serves
We bring smiles and laughter abound 
We bring noise where there was no sound 
We bring comfort to the sad and the lost 
We bring inspiration where there was exhaust
Words are a powerful instrument 
Helping to heal the environment

Never Told You

Tired of talking 
‘bout weather
Other trivial things

Tired of talking 
‘bout food
The price of tangerines

You may outlive
This aging man
Before I go
Please understand

Never told you how 
I love you 
When I held you
In the dark

Never told you how
I love you
I was never
Very smart

I never told you how
I love you
When I kissed your 
Baby face

Never told you how
I love you 
And I pray it’s 
Not too late

I would  tell you, 
“That’s what men do…manly men don’t say,  ‘I love you’”
That was my alibi
But what men do should be corrected
What men do can’t be accepted 
If it makes your woman cry

Tired of talking 
‘bout scandals
Rumors of the day

Tired of talking 
‘bout old mistakes
Who deserves the blame?

The Winter of our lives
Is drawing near
Let’s change it to Spring
From year to year

Now I’m telling you 
I love you
Though the words are coming late

I’m telling you
I love you
And it feels so good to say

I’ll love you in the morning         
Love you through the night
I will love you through the tears
And all the tragedies of life

I’ll stay with you forever
Love you every day
Love you,  love you, love you
It feels so good to say

Love you, love you, love you, baby

Feels so good to say…..

Love

Blood upon Pages

As I place the pen
on paper
my soul beings
to bleed
upon the pages
my secret longings
hopes and dreams
of which I hope to be,
how I want to reflect me
transpire into the universe
within my poetic lyricism
the warm sweet smoke
of my vega blunt
swirls about me, flickers
in and out of motion
as the vanilla candle nearby
fights the shadows in my room
the cool summer breeze
from my window
carries dancing sinsemilla 
fog around me, allowing
my mind
to adventure elsewhere
into the nights abyss
of minutes, turned to hours
I write
pages, of words
scribbling my life, struggles
and fears
Bob Marley and Lauryn Hills
“turn your lights down low”
beat inspirational peacefulness
on my eardrums
my small hands delicately pluck
my imaginary guitar strings
as I join her in a solo, Miss Hill's
magical voice cracks
with emotion, and my soul
tingles with excitement
For creativity flows
within my veins
I breath real music, such as
she, as soon as daylight opens
thine dark brown eyes to see
The poetic flowetry, carries me
and speaks to me
the notes capture my inner 
disturbance and desires
until the soundtrack of my day
takes me into Summers night
thoughts of my dreams 
of being a published poet
clearly float
into my sight
Then, I sit
as I place my pen
upon the paper
black and white turn to one
and my soul bleeds
onto pages
into an early sun

My Midnight Grace

As I lay me 
down to sleep
I pray the lord
my soul to take
if I shall die
before I wake
please watch me God
all through the night
and wake me and my loved
ones
at morning light
please help me 
become successful
with the endeavors I seek
please send me a soul mate
in which I can keep
everlasting love
passionate heat
please grant me the serenity
to know right from wrong
and be able to lead
by example
strive to overcome
any downfall
please keep my spirit strong
through the issues
that toil in my soul
I aspire for diamonds in life lord
and all around me 
I see coal
I aspire to turn things around
for I feel my wishes have fallen
upon deaf ground
my heart has no voice
they struggle to hear my sound
I pray to be taken
away from my daily
battles, that humble
although compared to others
in the world
its not much trouble
to me, I feel
my spirit is caged
and yearns to be free
King of all Kings
in your image, you 
made me
you already know
each single step
my individual thought
you divinely bound me
in mothers womb
my existence you sought
bless me with the
chance to be
the person in which
you hoped for me
to soar like an eagle
dipping my talons of success
in life's sea
grant me an optimistic attitude
for that is the key
Amen to Thee

' The Moon's Pilgrimage ... '

Moon’s Pilgrimage … Across The Sky To Praise
The Maker and All His Wondrous Ways
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Rises High, In Grace
Yet, Still In A Humble – Pilgrim’s Place

Moon’s Pilgrimage … Will Not Betray
All The Moonlight, GOD Lets Display
Tho’ She Moves In His Cosmic-Stage-Play
From His Theme-Theatre, She Will Not Stray

My Pilgrimage … Thru Deep, Dark Space
With Silver-Wings and Beams, I Chase
The Unknown and Known Questions Raised
Will Be Answered, When The Maker Says …

My Pilgrimage … To Touch Heaven’s Face
That Beauteous, Elusive, Mysterious Trace
Borne At The Blessed-Beginning’s Base
My Pilgrimage … Takes Me There To Pray …

My Pilgrimage … Takes Me There To Pay –
My Vows, My Voice, In Vesper-Vase
As This Moon, Is In Harvest – Phase
And Beams Brighter Now … Tho’ Slanted-Gaze

… The Moon … Glowing Ochre-Gold Or Silver
The Moon … Is Making Pilgrimage, Remember
The Moon … Is Trying To Help Deliver
Lost-Souls, Who Can Not Find … Moon River …

… Moon’s Pilgrimage … Keeps Steady Pace
Even Climbing Thru Dense, Cloudy-Lace
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Is Like A Dance, That Sways
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Into The Night’s Embrace … …

Staring Into My Own Reflection(Inspired by Rain Cerdiwin Keetly)

if you can see into the depths of my heart 
you would hear it sing the saddest song 
for those who have looked for meaning in tragedy 
for those have suffered terminally
for i have fallen just like them
i have been forsaken 
i've looked into your eyes and i see my own reflection 
i see the tears you have cried
i know you are alone and afraid 
your innocence betrayed 
but look into these eyes 
i have struggled and suffered just like you 
grab my hand you'll no longer be alone 
just think this through
for i have fallen just like you
let's stop this trend of sinking
for we are not alone
together we can break this threshold
locked in this embrace
together we will not break
bound together by something stronger than super glue
will you think this through? 
will you realize that i'm just like you? 
just look into this heart
don't let this world tear us apart
for i have suffered just like you
together we shall never fall
nothing can push our backs up against a wall
we will break through! 
believe in me! i believe in you!

Human Being

I walk a mile to see the self in me that I believe to be, 
I knew the road I choose to lay my head to sleep is called my home,
times in need I could barely see that in myself I will set free, 
the act that held me down, something about me I could not see,
I lived a life when I decide that day I said that I don't care, 
so young, so bright, I dim my light, traumatized for me to share,
love me please regardless of what you heard and what you have seen, 
friends say that I'm only human, yes you're right, a human but who am I being?
My life will move in the direction I choose, 
this I know I have always been taught
that I choose to be a winner or lose, 
its entirely up to me its all in my thoughts.

Rehab

So much I wanted to say. So much I wanted to shout.
It was like being trapped behind bars without a way
to get out.
My mind going wild with all these questions of why.
The only way to escape was to fall asleep or to cry.
What did I do so bad that made me have to pay?
My friends, my dreams, and my life was swepped away.
I know I can do it! I try and I try.
Nothing seems to get better. I sometimes wish
I would Die.
Starved for attention. I wanna talk to the world.
I just miss being loved. Miss the warmth of a girl.
Snickers and stairs is what my life has become.
I'm treated like I'm a kid, like I'm sick, or I'm dumb.
One day to the next. Life becomes work just to be alive.
I thank god for my blessings. I thank god I survived.
I finally see some improvement. More hope tickles
my brain.
It was worth all the time, all the tears, all the pain.
I awake with a smile and new hope to move on.
I did it! I did it! All those hard times are gone!

Breezy Jane

The breeze…the breeze…the breeze
It blows her pain away
The breeze…the breeze…the breeze
It makes everything okay
For all that seems it brings…
A happy breezy Jane~

Wondrous windy days ….can take that empty shame
Lifting all the sorrow…..and blowing away the blame
The breeze shall seize her fears…..taking them away
If fallen leaves could speak…. wonder what they’d say 
Before they leave the trees…. to convey a changing way
For all that seems it brings…
A happy breezy Jane~

I wonder if the breeze…. could remove strife that way
Making every thing better ….and mixing it with rain
The wind against your skin ….doesn’t seem like much to say
A mighty thought inside…. Procures hope finds its way
Lft your head up to the sky…let wind blow where it may
For all that seems it brings…
A happy breezy Jane

Phryne II

Greece you are waiting for me.
With white speechless marbles
within the August heat.
With sullen and loveless areopagites
carving my name on sea-shells.

Hypereides, you liar.
Praxiteles, oh so blind.
You Xenocrates, son of the *****.

And me that I was thought
I would return bearing banners
to rebuild your Thebes.

A roar under the earth.
Ashes in the wind.
Athens rises in the sky
and charges against me.

Why should I be afraid?
Why should I run for a shelter?
No!
I don’t want you to cover my eyes.
I want to see the terror in yours,
when after the execution
you’ll find me at the exit,
waiting for you
with a molotov cocktail in my hands.

You that bless the sea
You are Lord
You that forgive sins

You are our guidance
You are Lord
You are the Almighty
Yes you are

You are always with us
You are here
You are the king of king
Yes you are
You are the immortal
Yes you are 
You are the eternal God
Yes you are

The Touch of a Stranger


I feel the connection, from the internet winds
The touch of a stranger, around every bend
I feel every song, I feel every wrong, all the cries, all the whispers
all the deep desperation, each heartfelt expression

     They reach out to touch me, and I am enthralled
     So many voices, I want to recall

I have visited places, I wouldn't have known
They lend me an ear and a kindly embrace
The faces are tiny, some never appear
But the journey has been one that has helped me to grow

Here from the archives that clutter my mind 
They listen so patiently, time after time
To words I have stuttered, words that have rhymed
To all my joys and all my sorrows
All of my wishes and hopes for tomorrow

     
     They reach out to touch me, and I am enthralled
     So many voices, I want to recall

You offer a page for all of my stories
I listen to yours, the joys and the worries
And when hearts are heavy, you offer your hand
With a bevy of troubles that may weigh me down
I will scatter my tears, right here on the page
Finding the comfort that comes to my aid

You share all your words, I show you my heart
You show how you care....and did from the start

As I scatter my poems and you share your own
A bond has united, until we have grown
I can click a small mouse, and once again know
Friend touching friend, is behind every poem


     You reach out to touch me, and I am enthralled
     So many voices, I want to recall

Fractalscope

Duality spreading through the land
Above my head; beneath my hands
The greatest darkness I’ll become
Or one to show you the brightest sun

Open my eyes unto this world
Forget the silence I had heard
Lingering on into this earth
A sense of evil without worth

Open my eye as I recall
Imagination as I fall
The pain of knowing what I was
A monster blinded by their cause

A pleasurable passion to restart
The thought of choices in my heart
Not what to follow - to agree
Instead remembering humanity

Create a universe from sand
Building foundations without my hands
Turning the darkness into light
With a simple understanding of the night

The paradoxes I can find
Knowing we’re not free will free our minds
In seeing shadows we feel the sun
Closing our eyes reveals freedom

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

It's Time to Sleep

I am sleeping
I am dreaming

In the world Far away

I am hoping
I am dying

But I could live another day

I am sleeping
Soundly
Please
Don't disturb me

I am sleeping
Peacefully
Please
Stay away from me

I am sleeping
I am hoping
I am dreaming

That I could be free...

This is about you

When you have downfall on your mind chaos is all a mind can find, its time to change all the things you had held so deep inside, they cause rage, your trapped in while your caught up in the cage of life an easy life with out strife, no more pain or struggle inside a bubble and you want to make it burst, but first things first you know the times that come will be the worst, because its change you want, and you will taunt the ones who set the curse. They say if you want to change a little then its your choice, but if you want to change a lot they must first hear your voice, loud enough for all to hear, listen and all of the problems soon disappear, just know that the world can be a  bleak one and people dont always listen so you cannot only speak once, so when the end is near you can look back at the goodtimes throughout all the years think about all the times and cheer, and thank god you lived this long and your still here. Be remembered  only for  the words you spoke, for you do not want to be invisioned inside a cloud of smoke, watch as they listen when you start to feel the choke on the thoughts about your life,a bad life,  a black life, envoloped in fear you were hoping that the man would hear, and maybe take a listen, to diamonds in your mind as you watch them glisten. finally move to a position, and  open your ears and let your mind be clear, and hear the wisdom spoken from the person on the otherside of the mirror, society sobriety with out a clue just sit and ponder at the deepest thoughts that are revealed in you...

My Rodeo Cowboy

papa said 
son what you going to do 
with your life

now that you have 
no money job 
or wife

he said papa
I'm going to 
leave this town

think I'll
join up with the rodeo 
and break them bulls down 

Maybe even rope
me a stallion or
even a clown

Son you better
take another 
look around

for theres no money
for bull riders
thrown to the ground

or being stepped on
by a horse or bull
weighing over eight hundred pounds

Papa I promise 
Ill make you proud
of your rodeo cowboy when I'm done

And promise 
not to be thrown or bucked off
to the ground

So papa please come
visit when our show's
in town

for I'll be 
the one riding high on 
the biggest bull that's found

hanging on for just 
eight seconds while I'm
listening for that bells sound

just kicking those sides
of horses and bulls
jumping up and down

with coming out your
top rodeo champion and
bull rider found

The Rodeo Cowboys

A Simply Fallen Angel

A simply fallen angel. 
Who ventured to far from home. 
She's been captured, bound, and stolen now.
Encased in precious stones.

She wept, slept and kept herself.
Away from worldly wrongs.
In a place of simple loneliness. 
A place of simple song. 

And Our simply fallen angel. 
Who just won't believe. 
I'm a lost ghostwell gathering. 
Or treasure tossed out to sea.
Fallen to a pirate band. 
Then recorded to CD. 
As a simple song of simple hopes. 
Of shining stars thought telescopes.
As hidden light behind the notes.
The music hides from man. 

But as light flies from gem to gem.
You'll hear her holy singing voice. 
And see her holy sin. 

But she has found beauty in this life yet.
As she heard a song and could not forget.
That man she met on Sixth Avenue. 
Who forgot the world and sung the truth.

And on the spawning dawn of judgment day.
You'll hear them in the wind. 
With their simple song of loneliness. 
And their simple song of sin.

Creating Artistic Words (Chain Poem)

We are poetic creators
Creators of the artistic words
Words that uplift souls
Souls pouring out—reaching out
Out to the world for redemption
Redemption of the inner spirit
Spirit of natural sanctification
Sanctification stimulating the mind
Mind of elevating jubilation
Jubilation of living creation
Creation pointing the way
Way to the creator
We are poetic creators
Creators of the artistic words

YOUR CHOICE

What is it that GOD deals to us, from The Heavens and The Stars?, 
The choices that we make in life, will bring us near or far.
He has given us these two things, they are Life and Free Will too,
as what you choose to do with them, is merely up to You.
You may choose to do the Wrong Thing, leading to The Darkest Night,
Or turn and walk the other way onto The Path of Light.
The Bible says " God Loves Us All " no matter what we do,
All that He is waiting on, is just a call from you!!!!
To tell him you've been going, down a steep and beaten path,
And would he please just show you, Somehow, A way to just get back!!
Now you're Starting Over, and as well you see "  The Light " ,
Your Hope and Faith, God gives you Wings, Now Start A Brand New Life!!

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're running seems all up hill,
When the funda are low and the debts are high, 
And you want to smile but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit 
Rest if you must but don't you quit!

Life is strange with it's twist and turns
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about 
When you might have won but ypu struck out.
So don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

See succees is failure turned inside out.
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never see how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
Because it's when things seem wrong that YOU MUST NOT QUIT!

Twirl The World

 Back in the mind of times
 See it for what I find
 Twirl the world 
 While it spins I can twirl the world
 I'm bringing back the old days
 Seeing these brutal type ways
 Twirl the world
 While it spins I can twirl the world

 I can see my future 
 Standing alive
 Walking amongst deadly ways
 And yet I still thrive
 My message is very clear
 From beginning to end
 Enemies and foes amongst me
 Yet who is my friend
 God told me not to worry
 In time I will tell
 All that you need to know
 To do things well
 The key is very simple
 Nothing in life comes for free
 Determination is what I find
 In this mystery
 I have got my head in the clouds
 So time will not pass me by
 Wondering what I need
 But if I would only try
 Where I am going from here
 Nobody really knows
 I guess I will try to keep it simple
 In my next tomorrow

  Back in the mind of times
 See it for what I find
 Twirl the world 
 While it spins I can twirl the world
 I am bringing back the old days
 Seeing these brutal type ways
 Twirl the world
 While it spins I can twirl the world
 
 I am standing in the midst of a sea clear, bright, and blue
 I am looking for somebody
 But I do not know who
 I need answers to solve daily problems
 So I go to the man
 Who keeps the world revolving
 If I am in Him
 And He is in me
 A crucial door just opened
 So now I can see
 I am on the outside and still looking in
 Praying for answers daily in this battle I win
 The war will be over soon
 But I will still enjoy time of peace
 Knowing it starts within me
 To keep my mind at ease
 So go on and put the globe down
 On my finger let it spin
 And that is the very message 
 That I have to send
 So that everyone will know
 Who is in control
 As the story unfolds
 In the hand God holds

  Back in the mind of times
 See it for what I find
 Twirl the world
 While it spins I can twirl the world
 I am bringing back the old days
 Seeing these brutal type ways
 Twirl the world 
 While it spins I can twirl the world
 I can twirl the world
 While it spins I can twirl the world

Heard It

I was in clique

We had everything we wanted and was lovin it

But then one night I got really sick

And death I barely missed

So I said to myself I’ve had enough of this

I decided to quit

But then I thought about who was the leader of my clique

It was the devil and he wasn’t havin it

So he had his people watchin me closely

‘Cause he already knew who I was about to go see

I went to church and the spirits followed me in

The only thing I want is be freed from this life of sin

So they started trippin and grabbin, kickin and stabbin

Fillin my head with voices wantin me to make the wrong choices

But I don’t wanna go back

So I got down on my knees 

And started beggin Lord please

Don’t let me go back to where I was

When I was drinkin and lookin for a quick buzz

I felt you when I was on the corner sellin drugs

When I was pimpin and low-ridin with the thugs

But I changed all for you because

There’s now a difference between where I am and where I was

So the word got back to who I thought was the boss

He said “get her back, no matter what the cost”

But little did he know the old me was lost 

And the only place you’ll find  it is on the old rugged cross

So the “boss” is now in a total mess

Hatin every minute that I was getting blessed

And then it happened…

I died

What’s goin on? I wasn’t ready to leave

But I gotta remember every thing works out for those who believe

It was really quiet as I stepped up on the platform

And as I lifted my head the person standin there was the Lord

With Jesus at His right and the Holy Spirit on His left

Let me just be real and say I was a nervous wreck

The judgment didn’t take longer than a minute

They had reached a verdict

GUILTY…

A big smile went across my face when I heard it

He said “Well done my good and faithful servant”

Rise up from the Dirt

You have to fly 
to keep your wings,
You have to look
to see better things;

You must have faith
otherwise, you'll fall,
and before you can run
you first, must crawl;

How can you have hope
if you don't believe?
If you don't even try
You'll never achieve;

If you wan't to know
you'll just have to learn,
You can not touch fire
and expect no burn;

You must wake up
before you can dream,
and it can look like gold
but that thing won't gleam;

You have to be honest
if you want the truth,
to see into the future
Take a look at the Youth;

If you want it to be Love
it must touch the Heart,
Love never has to end 
if you know where to start;

Don't ever feel alone
We all get hurt,
Every beautiful flower
Must Rise up from the Dirt.

Fade into Shine

Someday, Some way
I will shine again
The light will hit my eyes
I'll no longer need to hide
The strength I have within
Will surely show again
This weakness that I feel
Will fade and disappear

.Alone.

you. are not. alone.
with cavernous ceilings closing in,
the impression of depression driving in the direction
of some unreachable goal of controlled insanity
– because always in control are you –
you harp on your uniqueness, your originality,
when in fact you are one of a many,
one of a group,
something you try so hard to deny
as the blood starts staining your hands
and drip, drops on this hallowed ground.
through the watery haze of your righteous tears
your gaze fails to fall on the footprints
of another and another, walking the floor,
their lifeblood draining just as yours.
all around you they sway, scepters
of tragedies pushed away and forgotten,
long forgotten,
as you blindly flail and try not to fall
off this lonely cliff of Last Resort where
you. are not. alone.
you search and you seek 
empathy, apathy, sympathy, any “-pathy”
to ease the pain of these lost, forgotten days,
and yet you miss these hands reaching out
wanting to hold you miss these words
said only to console you miss these eyes
meant to draw you in
and all you see in those eyes is a reflection
of something you’ve tried to deny
and you continue to balance
walking the  lines of chaos, trying not to spin
out, of, control
– because always in control are you –
you try to survive on the bread and bones
 of those come before, but blind you are
to the nature of your food, blind you are
to this world you stumble through
and blame endlessly, releasing you
from the responsibility you are being punished for, and
you. are not. alone.
so dive of your platform of solitary fears
dive into this river of comfortable tears
swim alongside these ghosts of years and years
of tragedies so like yours
let them carry you away from this
cliff of Last Resort and know that
you. are not. alone.

My God

Sometimes my mind ponders, and I sit in wonder, why does God love me?
Because getting along with me can't be easy.
But thankfully He's faithful, nothing I can do to change Him.
Unconditional, He fills my cup to the rim.
There are days like today that I need a refilling, and I know that my God is forever 
willing.
I can gain the world but lose my soul,  I'd much rather stay complete and whole.
Because friendships come and fade away, but I know my God is here to stay.

Behind The Smile

You see her smile, and she seems alright.
But what you don’t see is that she is crying inside
You think if she is sad, why doesn't she shed a tear? 
Maybe showing emotion is her biggest fear. 
She doesn't want people to see something is wrong. 
All she wants is for people to think her heart is strong. 
She doesn't want to know what others might say, 
If she just broke out in tears one day. 
Just remember what goes up must come down 
And a smile can easily cover up a frown. 
This girl, if you cannot see, 
Is no one other than me.

Is It Sinister To Be So Seductive

Drink Down The Deepest, Darkest Reasons For Me To Stay...

I sin in shapes while the dozer beats us both down
By one or two, my thumb is fingering my cell phone
After 3 or 4 I've got your voice choking the airwaves

Baby the beat in my heart is much greater than the beating you've given me
So I'll charm on
I'll be the burden to your apple tree
Your appetite is not right
Anymore

The pitchers here are for drowning out equality
The lights are dim so we can all pretend that we are someone else
The songs are loud because the only way to shake you off
Is to beg them for a headache, and I'm...

...waking up (waking up)
With headaches and pieces lost from the night before
BUT WHAT THE HELL ARE FRIENDS FOR!?

Tap me out like a quarter in the slot machines
I've made a mess of your ragged little magazines
Trendy eyes are the spies for the latest scenes
And now my buttons are cut to look like pine trees
(it makes sense to me, it makes cents for me)

So write me off with your shoulder to the jukebox
I've been here once, not twice
And still I've got you figured out
The whore
On the dance floor
Waiting for the biggest score
DARLING!
WE'RE NOT THE IDLE KIND!
WE'RE NOT THE IDLE KIND!
(ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!)
DARLING!
WE'RE NOT THE IDLE KIND!
WE'RE NOT THE IDLE KIND!
(ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!)
DARLING!
WE'RE NOT THE IDLE KIND!
WE'RE NOT THE IDLE KIND!

Generic Minds

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

Music

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

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

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

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

Who am I

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




Who Am I?

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

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

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

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

Look for the Good

Look for the Good look deep if you must
Open up your heart and give me a fresh start
One little thing to trigger it off and you never see the good in me
Why do you torment me with one mistake? 
Look for the Good for Goodness sakes 

Look for the Good you might see the Good in you!

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
   
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

Urge To Smile

Urge To Smile
By Nate Spears


The morning sun rises
My flesh is set back 
Due to my body needing 
Much needed rest
I wonder 
Does anyone else feel 
the urge to smile?
I know right now 
I'm feeling sour


A grin attached to my face
That lights up the sky
Behind my clouds of joy 
There lies a lie
With everyone wondering how?
How can he smile
with so much going on
Rapidly by the hour
People losing their homes


Some can barely feed their kids
The government is gone
They rather spend our money 
On billion dollar drones
Never the less
We're blessed
We're here to see another day
Being healthy and relevant
Gives me strength
To soar into a new day
With unlimited fight 
Packed up under my wings


Another day 
Another chance
For tomorrow 
Thanks in advance
As long as I'm living
I can better my condition 
It's mandatory to smile
A privilege to be living.

When the Lavender Returns

As cold as ice
Wrapped round your brain
And darkness unfolds
You’re breathing in pain

It’s been freezing here   
In this Land of Shattered Dreams 
It’s been freezing here 
This corrupted winter stings 

It’s been freezing here  		
(Où est la Lavande?)
Your body can’t stay warm  	
(Où est la Lavande?)
 It’s been freezing here  		
(Où est la Lavande?)
This cruel and criminal storm  	
(Où est la Lavande?)

But don’t give up
Don’t despair
Taste the hope 
Floating through the air

When the lavender returns
It’ll warm your frozen bones
Vivid violet clothes
In their candy overtones

When the lavender returns
It’ll race across the land
Rebel flower grows
In the palm of your free hand

If you look out your window
The ground’s parched and bare
If you call for your lover
She’s no longer there
If you ponder your life
Well, it feels like a wreck
And your failures are scars
You can never forget

As leaves turn brown
Sky fades to grey
You’re feeling the drought
The end of the day

It’s been lonely here
In this World of Fallen Souls
It’s been lonely here
With nowhere left to go

But don’t give up
Don’t despair
Taste the hope 
Floating through the air 

When the lavender returns
It’ll warm your frozen bones
Vivid violet clothes
In their candy overtones 

When the lavender returns   	
(Où est la Lavande?)
It’ll race across the land 	         
(Où est la Lavande?)
Rebel flower grows  			
(Où est la Lavande?)
In the palm of your free hand   	
(Où est la Lavande?)

When the lavender returns    	
(Où est la Lavande?)
It’ll warm your frozen bones   	
(Où est la Lavande?)
Vivid violet clothes  			 
(Où est la Lavande?)
In their candy overtones  		 
(Où est la Lavande?)

In hope

I heard them say, 
that life is full of promises. 
I hear them pray, 
that God makes a way us to excel. 
I have a dream, 
and each morning I wake up just to give it a chase. 
I aim high, 
higher than where the moon and stars are placed. 
I give it a try, 
and the universe gives me a peak of what I can have. 
It's within reach, 
If I stretch further I can have a touch. 
Its all there, 
my heart and soul knows this and we take control. 
The control of life, 
steering with keen towards our goal. 
I see the light, 
Its shinning brighter for my eyes feel with glee.

...then it all comes crushing down....

I blink a bit and it comes crushing... 
down, am left lying in darkness...
It was all there, now nowhere...
shuttered...
am drowning...

How could it disappear I ask, 
How can it seem so near, 
yet so far I cannot bear, 
the thought of losing it before getting there...
How could it lead me so closer, 
yet the moment I near it vanishes in thin air...
how could it...

Painful it is to bear, 
the thought of being down brings fear, 
my mind wanders in confusion as I strive for a better,
feeling than this causing my heart to drown like it's tied to an anchor.

I must wake, 
I must rise from this wreck,
I must gather the only strength I have left to try and break,
I must take heart and rise above all fear and torture that evil can make.

and so I rise, 
in hope I find the means, 
to stand on two feet,
again to keep my goal alive. 
In hope I steer dust off the dirt, 
I take up the sword and hold it closer to my heart, 
arising from  the ashes and again seeking to fly, 
my focus now clearer and my breathe now deeper, 
I know I can do it and all it takes is the inner, 
spirit to excel above all that tries to hinder, 
me from achieving what I have been so eager, 
to find and make my whole life better. 

In hope I fly, 
In hope I try, 
In hope I strive,
In hope all I seek I shall find.

..and so I go, 
head held high and full of hope, 
heart pumping harder and mind set on my goal, 
I know, 
that failing doesn't mean the end of the road, 
I know, 
that the journey of life is full of such falls, 
I know, 
that the bad sometimes comes our way just to make us strong, 
I know, 
that the only way I can get there is by filling my heart with eternal hope. 
I know...
that in hope,
all, 
is never,
lost.

The Final Confessions II

These were my confessions
(A message to God)
The light begins to fade
(It’s time to go)
Back into the shadows
(That hard black fog)
Where darkness has its way
(God rest your soul)

Nothing left to tell you
(It’s all been said)
No more songs to write
(This silent Fall)
Nothing left to offer 
(The well’s been bled)
From a shadow’s waning life
(Who lost it all)

Take my words and hold them
(Don’t be afraid)
Place them near your heart
(And heal your pain)
Shadow words will kiss you
(And heal your pain)
When your world turns dark
(Don’t’ be afraid)

And I kiss you
Kiss you
I kiss you in the dark……..

With This New Day

I have lived, 
And felt the cost, 
Paid my dues, 
But I have lost_ You. 


 Still I pray, 
As chaos looms, 
And as my blue turns into grey, 
I hear__ 
The angels sing- In tune. 

 Don't be giving in, 
Don't give up my son, 
Or fade away, 
Lift your chin with the sun__ And rise, 
With this new day!. 

 I have lived, 
And felt the cost of all my wonderin ways, 
I've paid my dues, 
I - Have lost you. 


 I can hear the angels sing, 
Your in a mistaken land__ Lessons learned in truth, 
As the grey seeks out the blue, 
She will__ Your daughter my son--- 
She will return--- To You.

For I have lived, 
Felt the cost of all my walkin days, 
I've paid my dues, 
I- Lost you....


I wont be giving in, 
Won't give up my girl, 
Or fade away, 
I'll lift my chin with the sun--- 
And RISE-- 
With this new day...

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...

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

After the Party Ends

Got my crazies by my side
Drunk on vodka cyanide
Setting fire to the night
That’s the way we live the life

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends

We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

And I’ll be seeing you there
Fists pumping in the air
Gonna jump, we’re gonna swing
Gonna dance, we’re gonna sing

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends
We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

There’s a place where time stands still
Far from things that make me cry
And I would take you there tonight
So we could stay young all our lives

You’ve been my friend when I was down
I’ll miss you when you’re not around
And I will think of you
In all the good I’ve found
In every light, in every sound

And I’ll be seeing you there
Fists pumping in the air
Gonna jump, we’re gonna swing
Gonna dance, we’re gonna sing

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends
We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

Got my crazies by my side
Drunk on vodka cyanide
Setting fire to the night
That’s the way we live the life

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends
We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

The Miracle

Lift the wailing wood
Hammer the tortured nails
Place the ghostly steps
Below the battered rails

Invite those crazy strangers
Dressed in stranger clothes
Join the mighty miracle 
Ready to unfold

Building a stairway 
In the desert
Aimed toward the pure and honest sky
Building a stairway
In the desert
Going to rise for miles
And miles 

Leave this evil town
Where scorpions share your bed
Guilty snakes make a home
Deep inside your head

The bleeding sun
Burns your feet
Hangmen joke
Beggars weep

Buried bodies
Cry for help
Undertakers
Steal your wealth

Building a stairway 
In the desert
Aimed toward the pure and honest sky
Building a stairway
In the desert
Going to rise for miles
And miles 

We’re laughing and      					
We’re dancing				 	
In the desert				
Dancing in the desert			
Of our lives				

Can’t you see?
We’re dancing in the desert
Dancing in the desert 
Of our lives

Feel so free				
Dancing in the desert				
Dancing in the desert 			 		
Of our lives				

Free….so free
In the desert
Dancing in the desert
Of our lives

Lift the wailing wood
Hammer the tortured nails

Glisten in the Moonlight

Your glorious emerald eyes 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Delight dances in the water
I watch it joyfully
You are set free from the cage...
You're like a dove soaring in the sky
You are the rain...
drizzling down in ecstasy 
A hint of ecstasy is shown in your reflection...
When you caress me... I'm relieved... 
From the stress that forced me in chains
I knew we'd be on the brighter side of tomorrow 
We're glistening in the moonlight 
I knew we'd become candles in the heavens above us
We're glistening in the moonlight
For a moment, I felt your presence...your radiant with sympathy 
I saw at first glance the dark side of you
Tonight, we'll be together and fly through the horizon 
We'll watch the sunset say its last goodbye...
We'll wave a greeting at the moon! 
We glisten in the moonlight...
What if I was as handsome as the lion...
Roaring with pride and pure courage
What if we were glistening in the moonlight?
Would it bring health to our bones tonight?
Would it make our heart rejoice and overflow with delight?
Would we be able to survive this horrifying plight?
Would we be shimmering like a candlelight?
We're glistening in the moonlight... (6)
Ohh...yeah...ooh yeah...ooh yeahh...
We reach to the stars and hope we can trace a shooting star
I feel the coolness run down my fingers...
We're glistening in the moonlight
You're the dandelions in the fields
You're the gorgeous view that I marvel at everyday
When you kiss me, I live my dreams
We glisten in the moonlight
In a quick moment, I sense a feeling of endless renewal 
I roam inside of your illuminating maze 
Glow on... sunshine... 
Glow on...sunshine...
Glisten in the moonlight...
Listen to the truth and rub it in
You are ravishing like the sunset
But you're ascending while I'm descending
I feel extremely guilty
I wish I could glisten with you in the moonlight
You're glistening in the moonlight (6) 
Ohhh yeahh... oohhh yeahh... ohh yeahh
You're glistening in the moonlight (4)
We go our own way
I wish we can glisten like the moon
Glisten like the sun 
There's a dream concealed inside of me...
Reveal your light and pour it upon me
You glisten in the appealing moonlight
While I'm subsiding... you're fulfilling your dreams
Of gliding across the horizon 
You're independence... keeps on scorching with satisfaction
While I'm below you... 
Your emerald green eyes
Stared me down like a hawk...
Your emerald eyes
Gaze down at me genuinely...
I wish we could flee together in reality...
That could be a possibility
To glisten in the moonlight in glee
We were glistening in the moonlight (3)
But that was only a dream...
I'll pray that it turns into a reality
We were glistening in the moonlight 
Now, I've misplaced my delight...
Will I ever experience such a brilliant night?

Coming From Where I'm From

Coming from where I’m from
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears


Coming from where I’m from
Every day is a battle to survive 
War is in session 
Right before our eyes

Each day we battle lessons
Just to be in the running for blessings
Coming from where I’m from
We move rapidly on missions

The dead is alive with every walk of the lifeless 
Limited income withholds wealth
The living is near death
Spirits are stripped of guilt

Coming from where I’m from
Deprived wealth
Creates bad health 
In occurrence to this 
Good feelings are killed


The worst gets exposed 
As times get worse
Financial situations become a disaster
No man on earth can rehearse
 
The world is broken
Hunger brings harm
Coming from where I’m from
Dictatorship is not fond

The environment brings the need to shoot
These activities loosens the roots
We’re grounded by values as thin as a pin
We lose ourselves at falling rates like bowling pens

No free passes
Prisons filled in masses
Separated by classes
Coming from where I’m from.

Old romantic

I take you by the hand, and lead you down to the bed,
'I love you baby', and you repeat the words I said,
I whisper in your ear, just what I'm gonna do,
Before this night is over, I'll make your dreams come true.

You didn't have to say it..  'cause I already knew,
But I'll give you what you want, for the trouble you've been through,
Oh my coo, coo, cha choo, forget stress as I caress you,
As I confess, that you're the best!  And it's just us two.

Time can fly..  I don't care.  I can't wait,
I hate being without you, and just lately I feel great!
Now we're cuddled up together.. forever isn't long,
Our passions grow strong.. I love what we've got going on.

  'Cause all day long I picture your face,
  Your eyes and your body, I could never replace.
  With our souls combined, we can sit back and unwind,
  And take it one day at a time.

I'm..  dreading the day, when you finally leave,
I'm a realist, it's not about what I believe,
But I'll survive, I'll live..  I won't die,
And no one will ever see the quiet tears that I cry.

However, that's the future..  and this is the now,
Forget the past, if you want, I'll show you how.
So hold on tight Girl, and go with the flow,
You've got a 1st class ticket, VIP, enjoy the show!

I won't ever stop, I won't ever go,
You know it sometimes feels like my heart is gonna blow!
You're the one, the only, great love of my life,
It's just a shame it had to cut me.. like a double edged knife.

I quit

I told myself I couldn't do it any more so I quit
I shut my mind out to all my friends I quit
I experienced something that made me think it was the 
end of the world for me, I said I might as well quit
I sit on my bed shook my head came to myself 
started to smile and said all this quitting is the beginning 
of a fresh start.

Promise

Promise
By: IzaDonna

You were such a young boy
With a tragic past
I know it still haunts you
Feeling like the pain will always last
Just remember, Just remember
I'm here for you
Keep your strength up
And always stay true

Chorus:
So make me a promise
A promise that you'll keep
Better your life
Before your into deep
I'll stick with you
Even when I'm gone
Watching from heaven
As you carry on
That's my promise

I know its a struggle
Fighting the demons of your past
Don't worry brother
I'll pick u up when ur falling fast
And always in my eyes
No matter what you do
I'll always have you back
No matter the decision you choose

Chorus

So when you feel
Like you wanna give in
Keep your head up
Remember where u've been
Find your inner strength
And moving toward
What you wanna achieve
Always push forward

A Peaceful Sight

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

Hip Hop Gave Her

I never knew the feeling hip hop gave her,
she was on the brink of death but it saved her.
80's baby this hip hop raised her
the art of expressing the mind that's what made her.
She wore a hat to the back baggy jeans
black back pack eyes like Isis soul priceless.
She inspired me and so I write this it might just
rise up her lifeless soul I'm just,
head over heels for this priceless diamond,
whenever she was down hip hop brought her mind up.
In an open mic club you might find her,
freestyles and spoken word poetry drives her.
She kept her hand in the air she was live plus
shy no man dedicated to the flow I,
knew she was gifted she lifted my pride
when she said her rhyme, it's what hip hop gave her.
I never knew the feeling hip hop gave her.

She's the type to cypher with 3 guys,
driven by the Queen Lah past molds a mean eye.
Father kept her down but her mother told her dream high
so she rocks a-di-da shell toes to be fly.
She's the one to get you up on Eric B. and Rah,
the only thing she knew was be an emcee or die.
On the phone tone speaking frequently till I
fell asleep in the morning I'm like, "lil G I tried"
She replies with a gleam in her eyes,
like I see you as the king in my life.
I'm like I'm like.....
girl you like a sister to me, a best friend I can kiss on the cheek.
Right then I think her heart took time out
to rewind my words then she cried her eyes out.

I never knew that hip hop gave her me
the same day I heard a dj break beats.
Since day 1 we grew on each other became a team,
last year cancer overcame and changed her.
Now she lives where the angels hang at,
she misses me when she cries,
she gives me Rain back.
Since then I haven't been the same cat,
now I know where hip hop's made at.
Now I know what hip hop gave her,
it gave her me, it gave her me.

Voice in the Night

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Healing words
Made from
Angel heart

Oh, her chocolate whisper
Warm convincing breeze
Oh, her breathy laughter
In the shadow of my need 

Don’t you hear the voice?
Save  you from despair
Don’t you hear the voice?
Sent by ghosts who care

Don’t you hear the voice?
Rises like a prayer
Come to rescue you
From your earthly snare

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope 
Kissed my tears away

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Now I dance
To a magic serenade

Don’t you hear the voice?
Memories of home
Don’t you hear the voice?
Pretty as a poem

Don’t you hear the voice?
Vivifies your soul
Bathes you in a pool 
Love you’ve never known

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller,
Take me, take me
To your bed

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller
Raise me, raise me
From the dead

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head

Song Within Me

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

I want to learn about my God
about his love for you 
his love for me
about his mercy and grace
I want to see his face on the day of days

oh, I know that it is  true
I know there's a song bagging to be free
living within me. 
I want to sing his praises  
I want to sing his name so all may know Jesus. God of Gods, King of Kings shine 
your love, your light, your grace upon me.

God the father, you sent only son to help us find way back to your loving grace 
How beautiful your way, guiding us taday 
Loving us the the way you do

Oh, how I long to know you, to see your holy face, your love and grace for the 
children you create how merciful your ways

Tell me, tell me is it true that a song lives deep within you
In your heart, your soul screaming to come out
Banging on the door, let me in, let me learn, let me love the
one who created all

Right Now

In the exact moment that I am right now
I stand in a sea of vulnerability;
susceptible to the effects of causes around me
and since I am fully aware, 
I own my surroundings
I am one with sounds and vibrations
resonating from the earth;
I am that pulse of the drum beat 
thats been thrashing 
inside me since birth

Right now, I am exactly as I am
deeply flawed and misjudged
used, victimized and persecuted
Right now I am you in the absolute

Right now, I am exactly as I am
balanced, whole and complete
attracting abundance and certainty  
Right now I am peace - still you
 
Right now, I am exactly as I am
You

It's Not Over

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Words of Life

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

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


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

*chorus*

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

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

*Chorus* 

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

*chorus*

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

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

Looking is the medicine

Written through the inspiration of John and Carla Sherman. who helped me gain my 
sanity back and through this start writing again.......Peter.

Looking is the medicine


I have been
The enemy of me
Trying to change me every kind of way
But nothing’s helped at all
It’s all beside the point
Now I listen to the words a man did say.

You have to look at you
That’s all you have to do
Then everything will start to come out right
All those things been written
They won’t help much at all
The ‘you’ of you must give the life some light.

Just take a look at you
That’s what the man did say
That’s the only way to lose the fear
Let the light shine on the story
That’s all one has to do
Then truth will come, as life becomes more clear.

This be the medicine
I take it every day
And as I do the lightness touches me
As all the fear is fading
To where it has to go
So I keep on looking oh, so endlessly.

Go be yourself

You my dear,
Have wondered far and near.
To find a place,
To rest your weary face.
A place so sweet,
Oh what a treat,
That will be,
If only you could see.



You my dear,
Have been wondering far and near,
To find someone, 
who will tell you your his number 1.
Dont you fret,
You'll find him someday i bet.
But for now,
Go and be yourself,
For you can be nobody else.
<3

My Wishes are Simple





My Wishes are Simple


My wishes are simple,
my desires few,

to gaze upon an ocean,
and marvel at a solitary drop of dew.



My wishes are simple,
my dreams not too grand,

to feel the waves teasing my tired feet,
with no footprints left in the cool, wet sand.



My wishes are simple,
my thoughts serenely gentle, calm,

my heart resting beneath a swaying palm,

healing my being, caressed by nature's soothing balm.

You see me looking

Let me tell you why
It's all from my light inside

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

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

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

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm

years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried

Lost In Thought

Now who would of thought the thoughts that would truly get the mind lost in fragile thought?
 So much on our known life, 
about unknown death when we laugh at others but at ourselves we really cry, 
in our very own hidden truth lies, 
amongst our own poeple who we defy, 
until we fight, 
for wrongs for personal rights, 
**** the darkness is what make us appreciate the light, 
I dont talk the talk nor do I walk the walk because I walk my talk while I swagger and swerve im my talks through these walks,
 Life can get so messy with death that its time for those of us here to grab the broom so God can mop,
 I live life to the fullest with what little I have because I dont have a lot, 
I live life shitty sometimes like almost everyone else like it or not, 
Im not special Im so unique Im individual with word talent I know I got, 
I know what I dont have so its important more knowledge among me is sought, 
I can be wrong half the time but can still make it 100% right I was self-taught among a young soul that seems to be bought,
 I got a bad limp but dont get me wrong I can still gallup through darkness while I jog lost in the early morning fog waiting to be patiently found in the midnight lounge where I trot,
 Truly lost so easily in profound hard thoughts litterally running from the cops waiting to duck and dodge from open gunshots,
 Bodies and shells drop where caskets are made among a dying crop, 
I can still make a splatter where there was just but a tiny dot, 
I used to have merely nothing now atleast I can truly say I have a safe spot, 
I was found looking for truth in lies lost in thought....

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.

A beautiful love song I'll sing you

A beautiful love song

A beautiful love song I’ll sing you
I write for you two songs a day
And I want to sing them forever
In these writings I just want to say
That forever I love you, my darling
You’re my one only lady forever
Oh yes I will love you with all of my heart
Until the first day of never.

What a beautiful, wonderful lady
You be, you’re my lady divine
And all of your kisses and all of your sunshine
They go to my head like fine wine
Whenever I’m with you my Darling
I feel like I’m walking on air
You give me a feeling, so sweet so tender
I love you my lady so fair.

Each day is a wonderful story
All filled with such beauty and grace
Because my heart floats for you Darling
Whenever I see your sweet face
I know that I could not forsake thee
For you give my world so much bliss
I can’t help but love you, there’s something about you
I guess that’s the way that it is.

Society, community, society, community.
You can leave now and let me be.
I will swim free, free in your sea. 
Your sea? your sea, polluted now, Oh you will never see.
Broken hearts, bodies too, beloved inner child, I love you.
Purity.
Alone.
Breathe, breathe, breathe.
Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.
I know now that this is all I need.
To be. To be. That is all, just Be.
Burn your toys, television too, kill the car, the radio..... 
MOooooooo.
Unleash, unravel, these boys, disentangle, unblock, reset there mind, please sir,
could you be so kind?
Simplicity, Simplicity, simplicity.
Eye's clenched shut.
Now I know, Alone in my hut, not long to go, you will be free.
Free. free. free.
Buy the car, buy the house, buy the cow, consume, consume, but how?
Now!
Now, now, you tell me are you happy? for ever and art thou.
Ah ha, you see, you see.
Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.
That is all I need, I choose now, my self is free?
Yes, yes, yes sir, me?
Free to sit, sit and just be.
Me? Free? free to swim in this endless blue sea?
I will just sit, sit right here, against this healing earth, oh so very near.
My mind is liquid, free to birth.
Just be. Just Be. Just Be.

Will You Travel With Me To Heaven PART THREE

Imagine a king who has many
Servants staying at his palace
It would make no sense at all if those
Servants do not fulfill their purpose


Those servants were ordered to work
And to respect that king at all times
While the king gives them a place to stay
They should always make his palace shine


Any slave who does not work may
Eventually be kicked out soon
Any slave who works improperly
May likewise end up without a room


That king has a right to command
His slaves to sing lovely songs of him
To choose the number of times to wash
A staircase, because he is 'king'


That king has a right to command his
Slaves to do well to his family
To treat his close friends with respect
And welcome his guests cheerfully


To tell them not to touch this and that
To disallow them from certain rooms
To do what he commands them to do
As he is the owner who rules


So when Allah gives a command
A command that must be obeyed
You must obey Allah's Commandments
Or else you might get yourself astray


So if Allah commands you to pray
To Him, five prayers everyday
Don't ask 'why? ' Don't ask 'why five salahs? '
Just listen to God, and obey


God lets you walk on the earth He made
God gives you fresh air for you to breathe
God keeps the clouds above you floating
And gives you drink and food to eat


God gave you a brain with which to think
And still you ask 'why should you pray? '
We pray to Allah, the Mighty King
Who lets us live each night and day


When you're awake, when you're asleep
The air you breathe each night and day
What you inhale and what you exhale
Are some things from God which you don't pay


The ability to taste is a
Gift from God which many just ignore
Imagine if you could not taste the
Food you eat, eating would be a bore


You eat fruits and vegetables that God
Created, from plants that Allah made
You drink water which belongs to God
And yet you ask 'why must we pray? '

Skin Deep

If I could dream
for anything
I would dream of Peace, Love
and Unity
for all Bloods & Crips
all gangs, are in need of a change
for you represent such ignorance
and scrutiny 
Difference in colors worn
Sides in which you were born
are truly all that divides
when the two opposing sides
collide
and it makes no sense
for we all Bleed
Blue turned Red
Blood Inside
And a future generation
is hard to provide
when death, is like your shadow
creepin' up by your side
and drive-by shootings happen
each late night, outside
where running seems the only option
to know
for no places to hide
no defense for your demise
for a difference in colors worn
and what side in which you were born
is truly all that divides
when these two sides collide
and it makes no sense to me
for we all Bleed
Blue turned Red
Blood Inside

Quit My Job, Smashed My Car

Quit my job, smashed my car
My back does throb, need to learn guitar

So I can make, a silly song
And I can sing, it all day long
About how, my God is strong
So that even now, nothing’s wrong

Even though, I quit my job
smashed my car, my back does throb

Life is hard, but I’ve got God
So I won’t let any thought
Any worry or fear
Convince me you’re not near

Even when, I quit my job,
Smashed my car, my back does throb
Life is hard, but I won’t sob
I need to learn guitar

The Poetic Blues

I think I self-sabotage unknowingly 
because of fear
So my message goes unheard because I’m afraid to let the people hear
And end up drowning in the poetic blues
doubting my ability to write about the truth;

I dug deeper and deeper into myself trying to write a poem good enough to be free of judgment
Then I stepped out on faith and suddenly I was triumphant 
and my writing grew 
and I was loving it
I had finally passed the fear of speaking and caring about who the fu*c! was judging it

As I wait to be inspired for the next poem, 
I sit and think alone and drown in my sorrows
Listening to jazz, blues and a.m. radio
trying to find an excuse not to perform at the SLAM 
because again I can’t think of a damn thing to write…..
Drowning in poetic blues
Will this be the one that will be thrown away and never be used 

Or will this be the one that transcends the others  
and finally prove that poetry is blues and blues is poetry and hip hop and jazz and r&b, 
Poetry is music and the words dance around in my soul 
and I am free once they become spoken 
In the meantime the paper is where the words will rest 
until the silence is broken

Drowning in the sea of proper delivery 
My voice, my stance, my intensity
How will others interpret the words that I’ve chosen so diligently?
I wrap my soul around the possibility that none of the words I choose – 
will keep me from becoming deluged and trapped by the poetic blues

Somehow my heart refuses to accept that I don’t deserve to have my words heard 
and it takes over this whole process
No more time for shrinking and feeling less
I was born to  make my words manifest light
I am a gorgeous medium to the truth yeah that's right
I was sent here to give you a piece of good news
Remember that God is with you when you get
The poetic blues

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

You have the power
over my love
to make my day rain or shine
it all began the day you asked me
"to be mine" and I wrote my name
in blood, on your hearts
dotted line
the power of my love
to fuel what feeds within me
pounce on me as a tiger
humble me as a mouse
your strength envelopes me
as if standing in an unbreakable
glass house
you have the power
over my stare, as you glare
into my inner spirits soul
those who dare to try to divide
I heed them to beware
the power you have over my love
leaves me content, without a care
floating together, we share, in
true loves enchanting bliss
what started years ago, with a friendly
hug, is reincarnated within every
new days kiss

Realm of Reality

Introduction: Life is a mystery with many ups and downs throughout the journey. The
journey filled with thoughts of tranquility and turmoil. But the perfect sensation is the
time when you get to feel closer to your Almighty, the one who understands you the best,
your closest friend, your hope and light, your solution to every problem, The mystery you
came to life to solve and to believe in.
Even in the happiest and the saddest moments, He is always there when you need Him.




Right now I am, thinking what to write
Holding my pen, it’s almost midnight,
I’m truly out of words, to express my whole life,
It’s so absurd, cut all pain through a knife
And I wish I could feel, Your presence in my soul
I know that You know, what I am going through
And I’m not sure I believe, unless I really feel
But I know when You’re not there, so I pray to feel You near

Now I can see, what this life is about
Now I do know, I’m too lost without,
Diamond in the rough, that’s what I was
But now I’m reborn by the shower of Your bliss
I’d die to satisfy, I’d do everything I can,
No matter how tough, after all I’m a man
I won’t fall apart, You’re always in my heart
I’d swim oceans and more, only to be Your friend

This undying grace of Your creation,
Time and space, more than perfection
You’ve opened my eyes and showed me the truth
You’ve blessed peace to my soul; I know what’s my role
I see two key coins, one black and one white
And all I have to join, the one with your light
Life is as it is, we make it our own
Hard or easy, full or alone

Everything grows, as they all involve
With the rose you put down, to show us what’s love
I wake up early, to see Your beauty,
Throughout the morning sun, I feel complete and done,
I drive all the way and see my problems solved,
By Your love from above, I stand still so firm
Everything I do, everywhere I go,
Every moment I breathe, I remind myself of You…my Almighty.

poems

poems of love 
poems of hate 
closing doors
 and clicking gates 

Gates of white 
Gates of blue
 all beg for something new
 
something new
  something old
 something saying lets be bold 

i  know you
 and i know something you 
would like to do 

 so take my hand 
and lets leave behind the seas
 and the sand
 
 fly to a new beginning 
leave all these people we watch 
sinning

Closer to You

I need what I thirst for
Her presence fulfills me
Quenches what I yearn for
She's with me all the time
I keep her on my mind
It's not enough; I need more.
Let my eyes engulf you,
Or make me blind;
My vision can't consume
Another flower
That isn't at full bloom.
And I do mean to sound rude
When I say,
There isn't a shape
With the same symmetry as you 
You laugh,
Am I a jester at heart
Silently playing a fool
Or do my demands bring a smile
And by inches,
bring me closer to you.

GOD DOESN'T REPLACE CHOICE WITH FREEDOM

God doesn't replace choice with freedom,
excluding me from that Heavenly kingdom;
if I disobeyed...I'd forever lose this soul to woes!
For my own sake, which one am I going to choose?


I lived youth selfishly...denying that He existed,
and He sought me when it was almost wasted; 
bells rang to atone me with their never-ending song,
the organ played its sweet music to carry me along.


God doesn't replace choice with freedom;
I either immerse myself in the life-giving waters
and allow the forgiveness of all committed sins,
or simply die without ever learning wisdom.

In My Life - There is a Rainbow after a Rainstorm

I’d do anything to erase your departure, leaving a troubled trace in my mind – face your fretful fate – there’s a rainbow after a rainstorm in the afterlife! I can’t wait till that nirvana-like Kingdom comes! No need to hesitate...but we do have to fait No need to be in anguish and let’s move forward – let’s open that gate to endless possibilities and seek a fresh state of mind – we’re on a clean slate and you and I can share our fantastic fate – follow me, mate! *chorus* I’m never bold & ambitious enough to say that you saved me from the death’s snare But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal the truth of what I feel for you deep inside In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave I was caved in by the cravings of my heart The darkness once ripped me apart But, you repaired me and I recovered pretty fast So, please listen up! I must tell you about my good and bad past Fear doesn’t exist here Get a grip on the rope of hope All anxieties are gone We dream on like daydreamers, awaiting another great, delight-illuminated dawn I’ll love you until my life is no more I’ll love you, even if you have strayed into the darkness I love you from the bottom of the ocean to the heavens above I’ll love you – I won’t get over you and you’re my love at first sight – you were and still are a dazzling, surreal sight – you kiss me and I’m overwhelmed with passionate bliss I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with me I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse Before I met you…of course I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone Before I met you, I was on my own V.12: *ending* Love has won my heart after you said your apologies to me for leaving me behind and I apologized to you about being unfaithful to you Affection grows in your heart – Love becomes serpentine in your keen, passion-whelmed heart from the start – talk that talk of optimistic pleasure… it’s your stunning work of art – you’re a priceless art! Our hearts were meant to be together in unity – They weren’t meant to bleed in tainted misery I believe you and I found Our happy ending above the ground Love, after all the tribulations and grieving processes we’ve been through, Mends all hearts and covers all sins and we’re being strengthened by hope – we’ve been accepted and included in His crew He whispers in our ears: “There’s a Rainbow after a Rainstorm…keep that in mind, my beloved children…” We take wing in the aqua-blue sky – he unleashed us from the lion’s den – love will not break my heart again!

Filled with Song

My fingers brush the strings of an old guitar, hidden away in the closet in my room.
A small smile plays my lips and I close my eyes, picturing me playing that guitar.
Me singing some song on a bench in the rain.
Singing the music that makes my heartbeat pulse through my whole body.

I can sing. I know I can, I just need practice.
I laugh as I picture the look on my friends faces when I tell them this.
I smile and put the guitar away, all the while thinking of how I'd love to learn to play 
that guitar.
To go to a friends party and sing. To make them feel what I do when I ride a high 
brought on by nothing more or less than music.

Breathless, I sit on my bed, my face glowing.
I will learn. I will learn to let out the song that makes my heart fill with so much joy I 
feel like I'm going to explode.

Still smiling, I put on my favorite music and let that high take me to a higher place.

Please Help Me, Re-lyric

Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.
You're just so damn sexy,
That's why I'm hittin' on you.
You don't have to love me,
Some good sex will do.
Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.

Yes, you turned me on
When I saw you walk in...
The face of an Angel,
A body just made for Sin.
Now, I may be real horny,
But one thing is true:
What would satisfy me, Girl
Would be to satisfy You.

So please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You; 
And I hope that you're fallin'
In Lust with me too;
But if not, then please fake it,
Please don't leave me "blue"...
Please help me, I've fallen
In  Lust  with  You.

Brilliant Month Of April

Upon the stand at the entrance of our home I find a new vase.
Beside it a box full of yellow and red Daisies laying upon a bed 
of Sweet peas.
As I look for the card there amongst the flowers I find a little
maroon box.
I open the box to find yet another brilliant diamond which I may
have set into a ring, pendant, or another jewelry piece.
My present from my hubby of my birthstone and flowers to
celebrate my birth on April 7th each year.
All come together with the card that reads "I love you more each year"
Your hubby Don

Ode: to Loveliness

Loveliness that's deep and that's rare
     is like a rose that blooms afresh
(like the rosebud that's new and fair);
     lovely in aspect and in flesh,
it lives in sunlight without care
     letting all the sky breathe and mesh.

Its loveliness is hard to find
     unspoiled and as innocent;
and with its tint and with its rind
     it quells my musing discontent.
As it sighs (softly and from behind),
     my nose takes in its lovely scent.

Its beauty transcends its locus,
     imbuing the eyes of my soul 
with romantic, ideal focus
     that makes the heart and the mind whole:
without it the world seems callous
     and grace would not be in control.

Lea

What happened to us? Did it just take one night?
How does a beautiful friendship turn into mistrust and fights?
Everyone was against us. Did our love make us blind?
We seemed to be winning the race, and now we're so far behind.
I love you. I love you! Me and you, It's my life.
If money didn't matter, I would make you my wife.
Nothing makes me happier then to see a smile on your face.
I love your style, your car, your taste, and your place.
It's home to me, baby. You invited me into your world.
My angel, my treasure, my dream, and my girl.
The one I held close at night and hung out with all day.
The one I fought for her rights, the one who took my breath away.
We've had our ups, we've had our downs, and if this you happen to read,
I want you to know that I love you. Lea, it's you that I need!

Blessing Star

Your black hair shimmered
I knew not the reason
I watched it every little season
My heart and head simmered
Your shapely body twinkled
As if never would it be wrinkled
Yet it had a little lesion
Which never ever rankled


You were my heart`s queen
Those organs of sight
Just witty and bright
They caught me off guard
An angel is all l had seen
I zoomed heavenward!

You don’t want to miss this
But don’t be confused this aint Christmas
You’ve gotta get real my brotha and kiss this
I’m a spiritual criminal with lipstick

If you’re lucky you just might make my hit list
Coz I’m a murderer killing *****es ego’s with fake riffs
If you’re a moral criminal and do the minimal you can’t hit this
We must stand together my brother to beat this

Pleasure - pain, generosity - blame, loss - gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 

I’ll mind punch you in the heart and give you a soul diss
Aint no big brotha gonna hold me and frisk this
You’re not lost or all alone coz my arrows fire straight and can’t miss
Things aint changed and love can still fix this

Pleasure pain, Generosity blame, loss gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 
Love -love- love is all you need

Something Like You

Something like a love song
Crossed my mind,
Sang to my soul,
Made my heart fly.

Something like a daydream
Drove me wild
Had me on cloud nine
Free like a child.

Something like a miracle
Hit me hard
Had me jumping and skipping.
I was touching the stars.

Something like a love story
Took my by surprise
Feeling like I won the lotto
Gave me butterflies.

Something like a love song
Played softly to my heart beat
Its all your fault
And I'm swept off my feet.

A Pub-ng We Go

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Oh I get down...

Oh I get down,

To go downtown,
And get real loud.

Save another of those whisky shots for me,
And put another song on the box for me,
Rack 'em up - c'mon let's play some pool,
Flirt with the girls...
...and act real cool!

Cause we're gonna get down,
And go downtown,
Get real loud...

I play real rough,
And love it up.

Armageddon Pt 1

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

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

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

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

YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN WARNED

I'll keep dancing forever

I’ll keep dancing forever

In this wonderful world that I’m in
Everything is a beautiful dance
I don’t know what’s coming before me
It’s a sweet game of wonderful chance
So many get caught in the fear game
As each day does crush them some more
But I’m on a wonderful journey
Though I know me not what’s in store

The end I can see in the future
But what is the future I ask
The past it has gone like the dust in the wind
So, can in the future, one bask??
So I say ‘who cares’ it’s all nothing
Just an old boat afloat on the sea 
As it waits to be broke by the ocean
And join in with eternity.

So it’s all a dance, to my thinking
The good parts, the bad parts as well
And me I don’t know where I’m going
Don’t believe in no Heaven, nor hell
One dances, no thought for the ending
And so it’s the same with my life
I’m going to get into the dancing
Through all of my love, joy and strife.

I give you me

I give you me

The green grass all around me
Seems so velvet soft this morning
As two wagtails whistle tunefully
As we sit amidst the Roses
Your blue eyes look so gentle
 And send your magic essence right into me.

My mystic, magic maiden
How you smile just like an angel
As the sadness in your eyes it whispers to me
That you have suffered cruelly
And because I love you truly
I know that I must treat you tenderly.

I’ll do my best, to make you happy
I’ll give you joy, I’ll give you me
I’ll give you all I have 
so very joyfully
I‘ll give you me….All of yours I be..

I’ll love you magic maiden
Till the day we be no more
You have my heart, so treat it very gently
We’ll face our lives together
Through fine and stormy weather
You’ll always have my love
I give you me.

Tea Time

Love in your bones, perfection, divine, a wandering heart pure is thine?
A moment in time, immaculate, sensual, alive, we align.
A mass of vibrating energy combines.
Lost here, safe there, warm dear?
Our love melts crippling fear.
There is no divide. No moon owns this colorful tide.
So now we jump! 
Inside my manic depressive ride.
Will I? can I? Abide? to society now, I have a bride?
Shirtless, shoeless, beard is long, happy am I.
Fear not, even King Kong.
Wife at home, smoking tea and high.
Jesus Christ! I sigh. sigh. sigh..
You pinned my soul, my thoughts and I..... 
Dreamed to die.
My, my, my.
Your cold hard shell.
I loved you then and wished you well.
A living breathing tree did fell.
Is it cold in this, your damp black cell?
Silence.....
Now. 
For this happy fat sow.
Expectations melted, I chose, I allow.
By camp fire I love. I warm, with stars above.
Tea in hand, lying back, to know someday I will love.
I toke on tea, enjoying my smoke. I love it here, so real. 
Remote.
For me, for me, I toast, I joke, this bloke owns nothing.
Sorry. I lied. Frothing. I do own something this lovely green smoke.
You strive for things, material and plastic, a waste of energy, I think, a joke.
Funny you see? means nothing to me, like you I wrote.
Happiness is. So very near, its here, shockingly clear.
Your mind, your head, to freely choose.
Before your old and dead, dead, dead.

Poetry: For The Words, Are All Around Me

The secret syllables
and words
surround me
in a morning fog
I absorb them through
the places I wonder
ideas I ponder
they flow into my blood
veins
as they spill from my rose
lips
like shameless water
they sweep into me
like the wind behind my bare knees
they whisper into my ears
within the summers breeze
they creep u on me
like a bottle feeling
emerged from being
cloaked deep within
the search for a pen
and paper, feverishly
begins
into the depths of my soul
the intensity
is hard to control
like a wave, the words
tumble over me
overwhelmingly
grainy sands distort
my messages vision
as I struggle to write
how I remembered the piece
would begin
it feels like a rush
of electric
creativity
lightning bolts of
wisdom
jolt through my body
shooting from me
stories of grief, and struggles
things I share to help
others
not to repeat
of loss and love
like a bottled sermon
thrown from above
the words hit me

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 !

Through that door

Through that door

As the Sun crashed through my window
As the birds awoke the dawn
My mind made new by daybreak
It became the day reborn.
And a whisper stirred within me
From my heart arose these words
“Go through that door to the other side
Then you’ll  “hear” these blessed birds”.

And those trees did softly rustle 
In the early morning breeze.
And I became the morning 
and the breeze that moved these trees
And the whisper softly told me 
As the dawn it beckoned me
“Go through that door to the other side
Then you’ll dance just like those trees”.

Through that door, through that door
Go through that door beyond.
Just keep on moving to the other side
Let the shadows all be gone.

That door seemed so elusive
When I sought it with my mind
Then the whisper seemed to tell me
Just leave your mind behind
Then I felt the sweetest music
As the trees they shone so bright
And as I wandered through that door
I felt such sweet delight

I have a dream

I have a dream
where I'm writing my desires
I see myself writing lyrics for singers
I see us creating hit songs

I see large arenas and concert halls
In my dreams I hear my lyrics in movies
I see known performers singing my songs
I feel these artists giving life to my words

In my dream
I see royalty checks
I see record, music and book publishing deals

In my dream 
I see autograph sessions
I see a millions dollar house
I see new cars in a garage

In my dream
I see myself helping others through my craft

In my dream
I see doors open wide
In my dreams 
I see awards of accomplishment on my shelf

In my dreams 
I see myself paying it forward to help others other than myself!!!
In my dreams 
I see that I have Seized the Day!!!

Always believe in your dreams!!!

Local strangers

On this journey
I will not come with you.
I will stay here,
sitting on eagle’s stone of Epos.
Wingless but illuminated.

Surveying the tangerine trees of Kampos
and the red stone houses.
The gained ground of my ancestors
that become rosy-hued in the horizon 
from Tsesme  and beyond.

Chewing the mastic from Olympus, 
that gathered by your hands.

Getting drunk 
with Ariousios wine, 
from grapes that stepped by your legs.

I shall stay here.
To give you back your homeland 
that for centuries now 
you walk on as foreigners.

Summer Morn

The future lies unwritten on
the blankest, blankest page.
I’m born today and, safe to say,
on track to boundless age.

At anchor in a harbor on
the leeward side of time,
engaged in making love to verse,
in making beauty rhyme--

the heart has placed before the eyes
what Gods of hope have borne,
a well of sweet serenity--
and love like summer morn.

A Prayer Of Frugality

Lord,
I need not prove my worth to man,
By driving a brand new car.
For the one that thou hast given,
Still takes me near and far.

Lord,
I have no need for a newer house,
To satisfy ego or my pride.
For the one that thou provided,
Can be warm or cool inside.

Lord,
For larger closets I have no need,
In which new clothes to store.
For what you've give still suffice,
And I've your promise of more.

Lord,
I need not do one single thing,
Proving to others that I can,
It's important only that they see,
Your love in me for my fellow man.

Lord,
A frugal lifestyle teach me to live,
In all that you would have me be,
Being content wherein I'm blessed,
Giving praise and thanks unto thee.

Lord,
May I not seek the praises of men,
Nor be found doing for show.
But be at peace within my heart,
Being enough Lord, that You know.

Beautiful Inspiration

Beautiful and inspiring is he,
Who sees the world through rose colored glasses.
If only he could see what I see.
His sight is clouded with unfortunate sadness and melancholy
He views the world from a birds eye perspective,
He sees the beauty of the world around him...
Yet true love and honest beauty,
Grounded in reality
He has neglected.
He soars on eagles wings,
Beautiful inspiration is what he brings.
Strong and confident is he,
Yet blinded by loves unsure indemnity.
A broken heart, the gift of his passion
Has left him standing alone...
My beautiful inspiration.

You're There, I See You

I close my eyes in darkness
While the world lies down to sleep
As a father and a husband
My family’s mine to keep
Protect them? I am willing
I am always there on guard
But, when I’m not and far away
I trust You are, oh Lord

The rising sun of morning
Has my family’s eyes so wide
As the motor sounds of traffic
Fills the air that floats outside
And the people that are walking
Some are jogging, some just go
Makes me see, what truly is
And all I really need to know

God, You’re there… I see you

In the blue that reigns up in the sky
On the breath of clouds that float on by
The image of the homeless man
Who still offers up his time
As he asks not for, without doing first
So I give water to quench his thirst
To the flowers that grow in the park
And the trees that children climb

God, You’re there… I see you

While coming home at evening time
Knowing my family waits for me
I smile real wide as I walk along
So all the world can see
Maybe then they’ll see just what I see
And then take it on their way
With hopes that they will share a smile
And make better someone’s day

Now the sun has set, children tucked
With a kiss I gave to fall asleep
Standing at the door I see my wife
And I feel the love she gave to keep
I thank you Lord for all I have
For always seeing my family through
Because I know I couldn’t do this alone
That’s why I put my faith in You

God, You’re there… I see you

In the blue that reigns up in the sky
On the breath of clouds that float on by
The image of the homeless man
Who still offers up his time
As he asks not for, without doing first
So I give water to quench his thirst
To the flowers that grow in the park
And the trees that children climb

God, You’re there… I see you

Phantom

i don't wanna sit here 
in the garden, without you 
i don't want to be here 
falling apart, waiting for you 
cause i'm sick and tired 
of existing here, without you dear 
hanging onto nothing, hoping for something 

we're not adam and eve 
oh why can't you see 
how much i need you 
so hard to believe 
yet cannot conceive 
how much i love you 
i won't say sorry 
doesn't mean a damn thing 
cause you don't love me 
we can never be 

i'm not gonna stand here 
all evening, without a clue 
i'm not gonna be here 
sweetheart, bleeding just for you 
cause i'm sick and tired 
of burning here, without you dear 
hanging onto nothing, hoping for something 

we're not adam and eve 
oh why can't you see 
how much i need you 
so hard to believe 
yet cannot conceive 
how much i love you 
i won't say sorry 
doesn't mean a damn thing 
cause you don't love me 
we can never be 

you're not adam, 
more like the snake 
you're the phantom, 
that haunts me 
you can't be adam 
more like the snake 
you're the phantom, 
ripping my heart away 

we're not adam and eve 
oh why can't you see 
how much i need you 
so hard to believe 
yet cannot conceive 
how much i love you 
i won't say sorry 
doesn't mean a damn thing 
cause you don't love me 
we can never be

I like your love

I like your love
It's pure, it's innocent
and I don't think I've seen this before

You replenish my reserves before it's necessary 
you lift my wings up and 
make me superior to my adversary 
Creatively providing the exact amount of 
what I need to go another day
I like your love
and for as long as you'll have me I'll stay

You make me comfortable in my space
What she share cannot be replaced
with any other type of love
be it artificial or tainted or lustfully blatant 
Those illusions don't exist because
we found this love and we claimed it

I cherish those nights when I scratch your head
When you sit between my thighs and I twist your dreads
We become an us that is so pure
that the spring waters question the purity of it's source
I like your love - it's a divine force

Guitarra, Express My Heart

Guitarra, I’m begging,express my heart Pick away all that’s ever ached Place these Spanish notes beautifully To the angel of her face Guitarra pleas, express this heart Bring to life our last Latin nights Dancing that flamenco from her charcoal eyes Reviving fiesta under most romantic moonlight Guitarra as now I gently play Fingers within running throughts through ebony of her hair “El espiritu de amor” is strumming along Bringing back the yesterdays to here Guitarra passion now is in the revival As the ghost of love tangos all around Milagros, I sense you near And in this instrument forever you are found

Trees and Dirt

Trees and dirt I sleep on the earth, the dust the sand, longing to birth.
Oil on skin, bare, 
sweat on your back, 
feels amazing.
Yes! Im back on track.
Sleeping cosy as a worm, 
unencumbered by any material possession or fixed term.
Free to explore, a magical universe, 
I must implore.
No home, no chores, no bills to pay. 
Just water, food gathered and warmth today.
A dusty cave, cute as a button, no slamming door, 
just love in your belly, to the very core.
I love this realm, 
just need more time, 
time to explore.
Trees and dirt  I sleep on the earth, the dust, the sand, longing to birth.
And return once again to mother earth.

A Rush Of Fortitude - An Unspeakable Strength

Here I was then and there desiccated by deterioration
But now, here I stand ignited by determination
                                     
Fortitude, you have nourished and cradled,
And cured a disease of the heart,
That has forever been so fatal.

Fortitude, you come bearing uplifting gifts,
A spark of inspiration, a blaze of motivation
“I believe in you”, you whispered one night,
And with this I held you so tight.
                                    
To a tortured soul you became so dear!
Filling up holes of long past years.

I stand no longer alone,
I stand no longer in the terrible cold.
Tears I no longer shed,
And hope I no longer dread.

For you have taught the blind to see,
A little bird to finally flee,
A heart of stone to finally sense glee,
And Hushed! The mighty sea.
                                    
Alas! Alas! A heart is finally at Rest!  
Alas! Alas! A mind has finally fullfilled its quest!

Can You Be Mine

She's marking my direction,
It's her that I see,
And there's nothing I can say or do,
She's struting down the street,
With fire in her feet,
And I'm thinking I should make a move,

No steps I heard,
She glides like a bird,
And her eyes sparked a perfect blue,
Her voice blew like the trees,
I fell to my knees,
As she said how do you do,

(chorus): 2x
I said, can you be mine,
Can you be mine,
I said, Can you be mine,
Love me forever and more,

Her eyes opened wide,
As though she was surprised,
She didn't know what to say,
She grabbed a pen and wrote down her number,
Before I asked her for her name,
She said her name was Lisa,
I said so nice to meet ya,
This girl, was playin heard to get,

I said I know you've been hurt in the past,
But you won't be hurt this time,
Her hair was so soft and beautiful,
So I told her not to pay a dime,

(Chorus): 3x

(Bridge)
Talking:
(I love the way you movin ya body, baby)
(I got so excited, baby)
(That's the way, you got me, you got me)

The zeal

Determination lives deep within, 
It never dies, always keeps shining, 
Determination to grow stronger, 
and make good better. 
Determination to become wiser, 
and make evil weaker. 
It's never too easy, 
to wake up to reality, 
and realize that you are still weary, 
of the burden that has befallen thee. 
It never too easy, 
to cast all your nets wide, 
just to pull it back, 
with no fish trapped inside.
Its never too easy, 
to walk the good path, 
and take a step back, 
for the road before you is full of traps. 
It never too easy, 
to think about quitting, 
for all you have been dreaming, 
is only a destination without the journey.

Determination and ambition, 
qualities we need on this mission, 
to walk on the valley of the shadow of evil, 
illuminating the dark and bringing light to all people. 
Motivation and wisdom, 
virtues we hold close to control, 
all our vision and make the right decisions, 
till we get what He has promised at the end of this mission.  
We match, 
in the midst of lighting and thunder, 
we match,
the storm high above us, 
we match. 
We can, 
and will, 
emerge,
victorious.

Who Are You?

Who are you to put disappointment
in my soul, and shatter the glass I broke
Punish the misunderstood with thorns of fire

The victimize frozen, and unworthy
Clouds neglected, weak and rejected
Water will secure the undecided thunder
Jealous roses will damage the roots of souls
Who are you to humiliate, and manipulate

Spirits of spirits
Soul of souls

Desperate fire so confused
So exhausted, impatient and frightened
The unworthy so traumatized, 
vulnerable, and ashamed of life
Who are you to attack

Who are you to be insecure
Who are you to be destructive
Your not, to be violated
Who are you to be defective
Who are you 
Who are you
Who are you
For I am you

Lonely Entertainer

In a hot sunny day, a sweet refreshing breeze 
 Wanted to help and please 
  Born to be used for a purpose 
   To profit from and care less 
    No need to be upset 
     Live with no regret 
      Forget I, mine, me 
       Be what they want you to be 
        The lonely entertainer 
         Sorrow and melancholy container 
          A shadow in a dark place 
           A forgotten smile on someone's else face

Words In A Jukebox

I speak words, rawly, but 
productively, Poetry Is the 
Passion, I compose, with A 
gleaming heart, that spins the 
souls of others, vibrantly 
shinning, among the rainbows,
Colorfully booming, Tenderly In 
A jukebox, as my ego, grows 
up the beanstalk, like sun-use, 
Wisely owl, among expression to,
its knowledgeable ponder, for those 
who listen, Do you hear, what I hear? 
Do you see, what I see? Do you know, 
what I know? Please take A step-
back, and listen chary to it 
again, As I compose my lyrics, 
down on A sheet of white 
paper, for all the world to, 
see, Hear, and know, because 
We are worthy, in the eyes of
God...

Race for Grace

Race for Grace, tighten your lace
Heaven is the place, its always been the case
Stare in space, wonder where is this place
Can't win with a 9 and an ace, go all the way
So seek HIM and pray, so when is the day
We go unto Grace, in my heart HE is 1st place
So do you still wonder how to win, the Race for Grace
You are puzzled, or in a maze
But i found, the only 1 to arose from a grave
It is we HE saved, so do you see
We all can win, The Race for Grace

Rebuilt

I gave her my love;
She gave me new pain.
I gave her my life;
She used me again.

She was my other half,
My sister, my friend.
The trust I once gave her
Comes to an end.

At first, I was numb.
I felt no pain. There’s no happiness.
But my family rebuilt me,
And gave me what I truly did miss.

I will never be the same;
One sister is gone.
But now I’m happy;
I’m never alone!

Tonight

     Tonight,
  People are going out to be with friends
people are going out to be alone

     Tonight,
  Someone is going on their first date
someone is going on their last

    Tonight,
  Someone is going to have a baby
someone is going to make one

     Tonight,
  Someone will take their first drink
someone will take their last breath

     Tonight,
  One era will end
a new era will begin

     Tonight,
  I will go to sleep in one year
and wake up in a new one

Happy New Year!

Who stole my dream

Always wanted to be a hero
But I am just another zero
I don’t live in a mansion
I can’t cope with fashion
I don’t drive the car I desired
I don’t have the job I aspired
Dreamt I would be a doctor
Thought I would be a lifesaver
Papa wished I was a pilot
But I’m only a failed poet

Who stole my dream? X 4

As I step into the future
I gotta be all so positive
I gotta be all so decisive
I gotta reclaim my glory
Gotta shatter the shackles of poverty
Gotta break the bonds of paucity
I’m gonna rise from the ashes
I’m gonna give my life a new meaning
Build a fancy house, buy a fancy car
Buy a fancy phone, marry a queen
Travel first class, into the future

Less Than a Penny

There are a few things
For under a nickel;
Like a lone Chicklet,
Or a sliced pickle.

But there’s so much more 
For less than a penny.
You don’t think there’s any?
Well I can list many.

How ‘bout a smile, a hug,
Most kinds of bugs.
Read a book, write a letter;
Do you need something better?

Blow your nose, scratch your toes,
Or donate old clothes.
Dig a hole with a bowl,
Not sing like Nat Cole.

You can climb up a mountain
And drink from a fountain.
Walk through the mall
In winter through fall.

Snap both of your fingers,
Throw horseshoe ringers.
Roll one eye or two;
Those are some things I do.

For less than a Lincoln,
A penny, one cent.
Is the list running thin?
Did I yet, make a dent?








There’s no mystery,
With the pleasures of free.
There’s infinite value
In a touch or a smile.
So repeat after me
And check history;
That the best things in life
Are less than a penn-y!

You can laugh in the dark,
Or cry in a park.
Say no when you’d like,
And call someone Mike.

Bend down at the waist,
Or take off in haste.
Listen to thunder,
Dream about plunder.

Win at tic-tac-toe,
Learn how to sew.
Whittle a stick,
Spell lickety-split.

Wear something drab,
And pick at a scab.
Jump in a quarry,
Or read this story.

For less than a Lincoln,
A penny, one cent,
That’s what I was thinking;
Now you know what I meant.
 
There’s no mystery,
About what’s for free.
There’s infinite value
In a touch or a smile.
So repeat after me
And check history.
That the best things in life
Are less than a penn-y!

Forest-Flame

A tale of warning for these times
This world holds more than you will find
Until you stumble into mind
Within the woodland lost inside

As we awaken, into pain
The broken emptiness and shame
We will misplace our brightest flame
The self we journey to find again

In moonlit whispers, we brave the cold
With shadows stalking through the snow
Approaching a forest, so alone
Our spirit guide waiting at home

A wood that’s thickened by this night
Our sadness darkened in this light
We stumble forward, filled with fright
A movement swallowing our sight

Our senses count the crushing beat
A heart of ice beneath our feet
The path is hidden under sleet
These bonds of fear are now complete

Frozen, empty; ensnared by dread
We hear the haunting call of death
The forest living, we now see its depths
Our mind expanding to its breadth

Through hallowed pillars filled with eyes
Through water, fire, earth and sky
Entangled visions unravelling lies
Our fears will fade and sun will rise

In sunlit whispers, we’re no longer cold
Its flame begins to make us whole
We’re through the forest; not alone
Because we never left our home

Romantic Feelings

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

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

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

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

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

Paper-Thin Paintings

Breaking through the darkest night, suffering no more
My dreams are of a deeper place, everything adored
Everything alive, now there’s no such thing as death
Eternity accounted for within a single breath

Walking through an open door, leaving thoughts behind
I drift beyond the maddening love I couldn’t find
Nothing is forgotten, but I can forgive it all
So much truth ahead of me, even if I fall

Flying through the brightest sky, absorbing every sight
Reflections made of paper-thin paintings of the night
A thousand words for every scene, changing them to day
The poetry I leave behind will always keep me safe

Shifting through to higher realms, its beauty washing clean
The ways in which I never could hold my self-esteem
Perspective of the infinite through knowledge I have found
I trust this deeper wisdom to translate all sight and sound

Awakening the visions that have always pulled me near
Rebirth to every corpse of truth in a world dying from fear
An energy envelopes us that asks for our hearts
Discovering that there is more to us was way back at the start

Goin' Down the Road

A favorite Grateful Dead song,
Going Down the Road Feeling Bad...
Who hasn't had such days?

An astonishing band they were
Amazing in so many ways...

In the early 70's I had
The pleasure to be
In a "Dead" cover band,
How incredible they were
They took me to "another land"

Golden memories
Goose-bump laden music
Oh, to relive a single night

To "Go where the water tastes like wine"
And once more,
To be in a time that was, oh, so fine.

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

Keep it burning

Keep it burning, 
keep the inner flame igniting, 
let no one pour cold water, 
let no one try to put out the fire. 

The flame burning from the soul, 
an indication of something good in all, 
the bad that aim to control,
our hearts from our goals till we fall. 

Keep the flame burning, 
keep it lighting with all the spirit, 
with all the determination and zeal, 
we can conqueror every the evil we see.
 
Let the flames keep rising, 
up above illuminating, 
the dark world with the light guiding, 
the path as we keep on matching, 
matching with all our might, 
matching on for we have the Almighty, 
keeping on for He has made us see, 
with His torch we shall find all we seek. 

Let our minds wander and our hearts open, 
let our thoughts create paths that we often, 
failed to see for the dark had befallen, 
our sight and we were left broken, 
from the falls we encountered on our journey to heaven.
He has given us the light so let us see, 
He has prepared our path so let us fill, 
our hearts with joy for we will finally reach, 
the destination we have been searching for in all zeal.
We will reach, 
for He is, 
the guiding light we need.

This Midnight Sun

Chains, how I hate their sound.
Day in and day out, they clink,
they keep me bound.
Lies, that's what put me here.
They said it was better in this place, 
to be my own person,
'Who needs grace?'
Darkness, the absence of light.
Who knows how long I've been here?
It's always night...
What is that?
That sound... A song in this black.
It's beauty is indescribable,
nothing does it lack.
My eyes! I'm blind,
the brightness envelops me.
It's been so long,
how can I remember the last time I could see?
He speaks like thunder,
this Midnight Sun.
'Get up, child' He says,
'Your battle's already been won.'

New Life

New place, New life
Livin' it up and havin a good time.
No more rules, No more excuses,
No more bull, and no more losin'.
It's time to start over now, New job, New friends,
Time to party it up until the end.
Gotta get it right, New place new life.
Let nothing hold you back, and get your life on track.
New place, New life
Livin' it up and havin a good time.
Live it up to the fullest,
Have a blast and enjoy it.
It comes and goes so fast, like a dream
So hard to believe that it's reality.
No more rules, No more excuses,
No more bull, and no more losin'.
It's time to start over now, New job, New friends,
Time to party it up until the end.
Life is short don't ya know?
Now its time to go with the flow.
Cuz it's a New place, New life
Livin' it up and havin a good time.

Searching

Searching.



I’ve been searching, always searching for a long, long time

As the years be moving on, and my hair is turning grey

As I’m almost on the countdown for my day of truth to come

I’ve been searching, always searching since the day I first begun.



I sought a man of wisdom

And I asked him where it’s at.

He said “my man it’s simple

But you won’t find it like that.

You have seen too many answers 

In those many books you’ve read

Yet the truth be live and breathing

As the words be old and dead.”



“You must move into your closet and you must close that door

And let the silence fill you, let it seep into your core.

You must leave the crowd behind you let it go with all it’s din

Then the truth in all it’s beauty may fill you deep within“.



Written 1996.

Love it

I love it when you're kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs
Passion slowly increasing
breathing deeper
Gaining momentum for the moment 
that draws nearer
Now you're whisperin in my ear
Temperature's rising
moaning, grinding
my body to the rhythm of each 
breath
Enjoying kisses with your tongue on 
my neck
While creating secrets between us 
that manifest
into beautiful stories of lust and 
fantasy
Unafraid to confess 
Rivers flow
The scent of the pheremones 
The beat that the song's on
Tuned in to your passion 
I’m feeling it’s time to make this happen
Finally releasing fear and stress
through pure emotion and love 
Freedom from hurt and distress
I love it when you’re kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs...

Dancing Game

Falling falling falling fast,

Spiraling out of the past, 

Spinning around in the rain,

Washing away all old pain. 


White feathers in the sky, 

All these feelings flashing by. 


Stealthy glances, 

Blushing cheeks, 

Weaving about our techniques. 


Changing paths, 

Switching seats, 

Hushing hushing loud heartbeats.


A door to the left,

And a door to the right,

Jumping out the window,

We decide to take flight.


But then, we fall, 

Just as leaves do.


And its true, so true,

You cant deny some laws.

But as we land, 

We take off on wolf paws.

A Night of Forgiveness

The lyrics of our conscience
United in our wars
The golden words are spilling
When our truth has been ignored

The dark ignites our passions
And death will grant us life
Where fallen statues crumble
The earth reclaims our lies

A future heading backwards
Can strangle every dream
But this inner conflict saves us
As we remember why we breathe

Silent is the city
That screaming voices carve
And enlightened is the child
That hears much more when it gets dark

Our fears have lead to glory
All darkness turned to light
And everything that broke us
Has our sympathy tonight

The Concert Experience

Music pulses through my veins
The notes play the cells of my brain
Index and pinky finger extend from the palm
The cement sways beneath my feet
The notes play the cells of my brain
Bodies clash as vocals arise
The cement sways beneath my feet
I hear the soundtrack to my life
Bodies clash as vocals arise
Index and pinky finger extend from the palm
I hear the soundtrack to my life
Music pulses through my veins

Love Is In The Air Tonight

Baby lets take that drive today.
Its the right time to get away.
Lets go to that same old spot
that we both know so well.

Its there. The sun
is always warm and nice.
And the river runs so cool,
always flowing thru our minds.

Love is in the air tonight.
This time, this time that we share.
Being here, being here without a care.
Love is in the air tonight.

When we're here we feel free.
So plentiful, just you and me.
We know its here for sure.
We'll make love all thru the night.

Love is in the air tonight.
Holding hands below the stars.
Below the stars, we begin to dance.
And we'll dance all thru the night.

Love is in the air tonight.
We'll sleep all day,
just to wake all night.
To wake and love and dance.

Under stars again,
love in the air to share.
Another night again,
always hand and hand.

Love is in the air tonight.

Will You Travel With Me To Heaven PART TWO


A God who is not a human
Not a soul or created thing
A God who always hears and sees
Yet we cannot hear or see Him


A God who tests us, hence we cannot
See Him, a God who never lies
A God without human weakness
-Not Born- A God who does not die


A God who made us with a purpose
To worship Him, worship Him alone
A God who wants us to be Muslims
And Heaven our Eternal Home


By worshiping only One God
And following God's Rules and Laws
Allah is He. God is Allah.
Allah: The God who has no flaws


Allah is not the God of Arabs
Not all Arabs believe in Him
Allah is the God of all of us
Who made everyone and everything


If you ask 'why the name Allah? '
I ask you, why's your name your name?
Imagine your teacher says 'I'm Jane'
If you disbelieve you could be 'lame'

She says, 'Class, I'm Jane; I'm your teacher'
You say, 'I don't want a teacher 'Jane''
Your teacher says, 'my name is Jane'
You say, 'Don't teach, unless your name is changed'


If one has done that, they have rebelled
They're arrogant; they want attention
If you're a troublesome student
Then all you get is detention


So if Allah says that He is God,
That Allah is God, and God Allah
Then believe in God, worship Allah
To avoid Hell and its boiling lava


Allah is One, the Only True God
Allah created you and I
Allah has no children nor wife
Allah needs no bodyguard nor spy


Allah is One, God is Just One
I said 'One God', not 'God in Three'
One God who rules the whole universe
'More than many gods'? How can that be?


If there were many gods as some claim
The whole world would be upside down
False gods would vie with one another
As kings would fight for the same crown


God has no son. God has no daughter.
God has no wife, God did not marry
God is too Powerful and Perfect
God does not weaken nor get lonely


God is Allah, Allah the True God
If you now believe, please testify
That there is no god but Allah
And God was never crucified


Once you have recognized Allah
Remember that Allah has Rules
Rules that must be followed by all
All of God's servants, including you


God commanded us to pray to Him
To Pray to Him each day and each night
To worship Him our Creator Allah
Is the reason why God gave us life

Over and Beyond

I stand here, Dead in the dark, I try not to shed a tear, Why'd it have to be so far? I stand here, Thinking of the future, Thinking of fear, Does it have a cure? I stand here, Thinking of how to succeed, With obstacles at the end of each peer, Wanting to show I am not another bead, On another necklace, Am I dirt to be stepped on? I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. I walk here, Through vines of life, It's getting near, Will I be intertwined? I walk here, Looking for a light, Waiting for the fog to clear, Will I shine bright? I walk here, Showing the truth, Ready to steer, Will my mood still be blue? I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. I will run, Into his arms, Not shedding blood, Into his care. I will run, Off that cuddled peer, Showing my love, Showing no fear. I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. I show how to be free, Like a wild horse, I know I am meant for great things, That's why I want to go Over and Beyond, To the edges of the earth, Not sure where it ends, Dieing for rebirth, I shall not bend, To your every whim, I shall not cry, I will not give in, I shall not die. So don't try to stop me, I will only push pass, Through those trees, Through the cold, damp grass. I will succeed. I will succeed. I will succeed. I will succeed. Don't stop me.

The searcher

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

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

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

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

The Precious One

Abort is not the key
It will have you feeling less
Nothing but pain and regrets
Abort is not the key
She or He is apart of you
Forget the other half
As they get older you will have the last laugh
Children bring nothing but blessings if you do right by them
Forget him
You will succeed
It's your body and your seed
Abort is not the key

EYE Don't See -Part 3-

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

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

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

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

Nourish me…and be my beloved friend

Will this friendship last forever?

Hopefully it has no end

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

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

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

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

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

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!

Spring flower

Spring flower.

A spring flower blossomed gaily 
In the year of 0 0 two
As Jakob entered all our lives
And a ladies dreams came true
Her love it was unfolding
In this joy that she be holding
That turned her life and made her all brand new.

He had a face of beauty 
I sensed the Buddha there
As all around that little room
Pure love was everywhere
And life it whispered to me
So warm and tenderly
This gift be yours, to love eternally.

Life whispered to me gaily 
“this gentle child be born
To heal those ancient hurts in you
With the love within his form”

I held him to me gently
With all the love in me
As I gazed into his little face
So warm and tenderly
And I said “my love, I give to thee
Yes I will love you endlessly
My love it be until eternity“.

26 August 2002.

Silent Night Sky

Oh how can one capture 
Your beauty on paper
Without you evaporating
Off as it is your nature

The stars are your jewels
The moon is your crest
Everyone drools
As if blessed

Your silence is serenity
That whisper to my thoughts
An overwhelming beauty
That ties my stomach up in knots

How humble I am sound
A beauty incomparable
With a radiance so profound
Your absence is unbearable

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

Christmas time is almost here (Revised 2nd Version)

It’s at that special time of year
The feeling of love fills the air
Celebration festive lights and good cheer
Santa Clause ringing bells and reindeer

Turkey Dinners and vegetable beef stew
apple pies and sweet potatoes too.
Children laughing in delight
A tree that represents the life

Christmas time is almost here
At Mid-night tonight magic holds the world near
Christmas time is almost here
' round the world an-tic-i-pation in the atmosphere

reflection of the moon as a guiding light
A star that stands proud through the night
A gentle flurry covers Streets white
Listen closely angles singing ‘bout JC tonight

On the twenty fifth of December
It’s a birthday to remember
Bow your heads honor and reflect
Forgiveness and humility lead to thanks and respect

With a simple message believe in me 
Open your hearts to be free
Release the fear and doubt
In the name of the king Merry Christmas

Christmas time is almost here
At Mid-night tonight magic holds the world near
Christmas time is almost here
Around the world anticipation in the atmosphere

Recovery

I’m still recovering from the aftershocks of your love
Yu lifted me higher than the clouds above
The world is a scary ride
At least His angels are on our side
As long as we come along with them side by side

I won’t disappoint you
I’ll try my best to cheer you on  
You are as beautiful and keen like the Sun, shining day by day
Darling, I will never desert you no matter what troubles come our way
We’re on this expedition together forever – we can survive the run

You are the vibrant moon, beaming bright,
Dismissing the misfortunate and chilling night 
Bring it on, fascinating eagle, spread out your wings and fly so high
Keep on pressing on until you and I reach our haven
Chase away the cynical, gloomy raven

I won’t let you down any more
I’ll try my best to help you gleefully soar
You are as beautiful and dazzling like the Sun, shining in my direction
Darling, I will never desert you no matter what we face in this tricky expedition  
We’re on this adventure together as a team– we can survive the run

I won’t give up on you…so bear with me for a while longer
There will be difficult circumstances coming our way
Don’t be weeping in dismay
Wait for a blessed, delightful day

I won’t make you frown…you make my world go round
I’ll try with all of my might not to slip and fall on the ground  
You are as striking and splendid like the Sun, shining day by day
Darling, I will never push you out of the way, for I feel like you should stay
We’re partners as long as we live and be safe – we will be done

I’m still arriving undone by your outlandish nature
You are the cruel gravity that makes me feel so unsure
The world is a dangerous zone
At the moment, I’m left all alone

I won’t fail you…

I hope you won't fail me...

I'm here for you!

You're as strong and elegant like the Sun, kindling joy
Darling, I will never leave you alone, no matter what we face in this strange land!
We’re sticking together even in death– 
We’re recovering from being thrown about like a toy 

I’m still resisting the temptation to blow up on you like a bomb
But, you are so sensitive and you can’t help acting so dense, like some 
The World of Woe is meeting its conclusion...and I've become numb
Cold and unbreakable like a boulder
Maybe I need to relax on a shoulder
Could you pray with me for full recovery?
I'll pray for comfort and peace to replace misery

Today, the sky is baby blue for me and you…

Just like your eyes, they twinkle…it’s too real to be true

I’m still recovering from losing you!

More Than Yesterday

She says she feels the days upon her The many years she’d seen fly I tell her not to ever worry There is no reason for her to cry The worry she has thrust upon her So much weight for her to take She’s not alone; I’ll be there with her Through every night and morning’s wake Wanna take her Wanna hold her And let her know Despite we’re older I love her… more than yesterday I’ll protect her I’ll console her And let her know Just as I’ve told her I love her… more than yesterday There is no curse that we can’t conquer No sickness, together, we can’t cure I tell her this, because I love her And we’ll get past, of this I’m sure She smiles and behind I still see tears The worry she buries deep inside Trying not to show just how she feels But concern is one thing she just can’t hide Wanna take her Wanna hold her And let her know Despite we’re older I love her… more than yesterday I’ll protect her I’ll console her And let her know Just as I’ve told her I love her… more than yesterday Tomorrow, I tell her, is ours forever A love letter of life, eternally writing That hope and thoughts will keep us going Down our golden roads, a life exciting Wanna take her Wanna hold her And let her know Despite we’re older I love her… more than yesterday I’ll protect her I’ll console her And let her know Just as I’ve told her I love her… more than yesterday

Scarred Tissue

scarred tissue i don't miss you i don't wish you were the better of me i don't care much for surveillance but it tempts me to burn out inside everybody's lying scarred tissue i really miss you i really wish you had got the better of me you see, i need that bad beat sometimes 'cause everybody's fine yeah, everybody's fine that's what on my mind For even Elvis reigning in his castle sometimes lost battles, immortalized forever tell the stories of the glories of mighty Aphrodite the most beautiful sin in existence bright was her smile all while the while evil stirred grinning storm clouds castles in the sky castles in the sky made for you and I grand castles in the sky sometimes re-invent your self just for indulgence stray from the normal path for it was one of a kind but I'm already under influenced sometimes a knowledgeable bright shining star fades away into the darkness shall come back in rebirth I know it sounds tragic but that's what I heard every bird has wings wings to fly away any chosen day into my dismay a beautiful array wings to start a new inner strength attitude because I'm in stride with you on another level soon a game worth winning is the reason we play life can be desperate at times but I find its beauty truly basking in the sunlight of midday so as I wave before a wave washes me to the shore I seek every day has been worth the while for the while stays wildly embedded in uniquely threaded scarred tissue

Tranquility

Introduction: Wonders of the lights, the meditative aurora of the world...


In silenced sleepless nights
They draw me close to them,
Through visionary lands and sights
Of unfulfilled needs, the worldly fame,

Towards a realm without immorality
The immortality of kindness,
The poignant poise of sympathy
Lives be in them, placidness.

Airy lands of the skies
The soundless voice of paradise,
The symbol peace of serenity
Let it be released - Tranquility.

Black Love

  
                 Black LOVE

             My head rested
on the pillow of her smooth skin.
She opened the curtains of her being,
My hands slip into indulgence while 
 they explored her expansive dark skin.
With half words she whispered moans,
 followed by screams of passion.
With her shadow I bounded, as she 
swarmed waters of our endless longing passed.

                         By

Keep Me Awake At Night

i never thought i would say
these words are so true
but the fact still remains
i'm so in love with you

i keep thinking about 
when my world is nothing
you take away the grey
with all the things you say
and baby my heart will stay the same
i promise, ohh yeah 
you keep me awake at night

so as long as it keeps pounding
your words will keep on reminding
me of your love, while they keep on lying 
and i know no matter what they say
i'll be yours forever and ever 
as long as you want me too

i never thought i would say
these words are so true
but the fact still remains
im so in love with you

i keep thinking about 
when my world is nothing
you take away the grey
with all the things you say
and baby my heart will stay the same
i promise, ohh yeah
you keep me awake at night

boys and girls sometimes 
say things that are so fake
but baby when you speak
your words i'll never throw away

so let's kiss
just one last time
before you leave
i want your lips on mine
and i'll always remember
ohhh,  hell yeah
you keep me awake at night

i never thought i would say
these words are so true
but the fact still remains
im so in love with you

i keep thinking about 
when my world is nothing
you take away the grey
with all the things you say
and baby my heart will stay the same
i promise, ohh hell yeah
you keep me awake at night

Children, the Elderly and Bugs

A beautiful friend of mine said to me,
"Children, the elderly, bugs
And the most unwanted 
Are the people I attract."

I told her
That the most unwanted
wants the most wanted.
Bugs are attracted to light,
And the elderly seek 
A fountain of youth.
Children look up to those
Who are big in heart,
And even the beautiful
Want to be complimented 
With more beauty.
So, this was her appeal
Which would attract 
The whole world to her,
Even the most wanted.

A man with a heavy heart with a blind faith

I ant never going to break
I wasn't lonely that i was a boy
nor a man that grows with the wind
i was a free sole, to scope the world
we run free into the bliss till the mist
As grass grows i flow strong and never rem-min-niss into the mist
British intelligence are on our back and they wont catch no one so they wont catch us 
we run a four mint mile even though we are heaver than lead but as light as a feather  
shoes are wrecked, as we trek upon the flag path
making jokes about obarma sounds like asrma to me  
think we are fools sitting on the corner 
little lady its 30degrees on Thursday 
forget the visit to the clinic 
little lady don't make no lies when he stickes your lip 
don't go mad for a couple of grams
your face is full of fear , don't worry dear
he just wants to know who you are working for from your pursed lips
he drives a Mercedes and i am fibbing when i say i got hit by a door 
she does not want to sell love to another man 
your make up cant hide your Hick ups to the mother land with the upper hand 
little lady don't close your eyes and wait for a better life  
he talks to you more than a dirty whore 
just give your pimp what you owe , before he beats you in the door 
hold my hand and fly to another land with me 
we will grow old with love 
we will never rem-min-ness into the mist
i don't care what happened i love your warming sole 
sooo hush little lady don't you cry 
i am sure i can rise and love you right
my first thoughts are the right thoughts 
if we both move slowly we can both sleep
is time right or tight , or you going by gods clock 
so hold me closely tonight , and i wont let you go
i will never say good bye as you open your eyes, hold me closely into the night 
as my tiers fall from my face upon your face as you sleep into this night 
i will be your knight till your pain flows away with time as your mine tonight 
as i will be dreaming till you wake 
when you wake with no shake, feel strong , this ant no dream 
this is love with touch and warmth, without the cold December
listen your strong little lady, don't worry about the doom and gloom 
you just got to let go , u are not stuck in a solar eclipse 
you cardio muscle weighs more than a ton 
your fighting against self automatic self dissection
your in flight like a phone charge 
the music we play will ease your mind like a musical vibe 
i am a man with a heavy heart with a blind faith with no bitter taste
your in safe hands 
with me and our fans 
for you UR safe

Say Something

There's a mouth wide open,
coming out? Those words unspoken;
There's something that needs to be said,
nothing that should be read.
 
Trying my best with you to talk,
but it seems that all I can do is walk;
I feel like I have something to say,
but it's already now a new day.
 
The wind blows through my hair,
realizing I'm zoned out in stare;
I'm thinking of what to say to you,
if there is something to say or do.
 
The words that I need to say are true,
but I don't want my words to bother you;
I'm not trying to be such a pain,
or tempt to make you go insane.
 
I'm being real by what's in my heart,
and hoping that what I say doesn't tear us apart;
I just really had something to say,
something that shouldn't be waited on another day

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!

Wait for me in Budding Branches

Closed Eyes --
I imagine you, a bird
Soaring through a cloudless wide open
And to my ears, I hear the gentle chimes
In breathtaking delight, a sound so
Tinkle 
Tinkle
Tinkle…
Breathing in --
The air is warm painted in sunshine
Sweet as fresh rain in the woods
I hear you --
A quiet flutter against plumes
Your feathers lift so subtle 
Embracing cooling winds
High above the treetops…

Please wait for me in budding branches;
I will fly with you, I promise --
I love you.

come on let's get happy

Come on lets get happy.

Sometimes I feel so happy
I could dance in in perfect glee
I could sing from the highest mountain
Just let myself be free
And float just like a feather
Upon a warm spring breeze
I feel so very happy
My whole world filled with ease

Sometimes I feel like leaping 
in the middle of the street
My legs all light like feathers
My whole world feels so sweet
And I don’t know why this happens
But I do not give a dam
I am happy that I’m happy
I am like a baby lamb.

I wasn’t always like this
Something happened in my heart
Now I’m happy just for being
And for my blessed art
I’m inviting everybody
You’ve all got to dance with me
Come on and board my happy train
Take a break from normalcy.

Missing

Walking around the graveyard
Untaggling his hands from the pocket in his jacket
its clear in his head that he's screaming for something
that something is missing within his heart

Taking off his hat as he sits it on her grave
Pulling out a piece of paper
The death certificate that her name was signed on
a tear falling from his cheek 
he reaches down to pick up the flower he laid there before

crumples at his touch
sitting down the piece of paper
he asked her
how can i love?
when the one i want is not here?

tears fall from his eyes unto the paper 
he lights a candle
sits it by her tombstone

He lays down beside her
listening to the wind
hoping to hear her voice
something he longed for
something that he was missing

he falls asleep
holding the stem of the rose that crumpled before
The pedals fly away with the wind
and the flame of the candle burns out
the rain starts to fall

He lays with his eyes closed
He goes back in time
The rose pedals fall back unto the stem
The paper flies back into his pocket

He walks back into town
Back into the house he was at before
Back at her funeral
to the hospital they were at
When they found out she had cancer
To the church where they got married
To the time when he asked her to marry him
Finally to the place where they met

There story replays again in his mind
he lays cold on the ground beside her
The wind dies down
and the candle starts burning again

Leave Your Sorrow

Pain doesn’t suit you.
Anger isn’t your color.
Crying is the worst.
So don’t even bother.

You’re precious when you smile.
Your laugh is so pure.
Even at my lowest,
Your love is my cure.

So leave your sorrow,
Tell it to “GET LOST!”
Chip away your hurt,
Like breaking the Frost.

Redwood Tree

Skies are Blue
Trees are green
I keep on walking round that redwood tree,
I keep on walking around that redwood tree.

I've been walking
For days on end
And I still can't see
The light again.
So I'll keep on walking round that redwood tree,
I'll keep on walking round that redwood tree


I've kept on walking
till I met you
With sea blue eyes
A pretty smile, too.
So no more walking
Round that red wood tree
No more walking down that redwood tree.

The Legend Of A Lyricist

I am what you would call the last. 
The outcast of a breed, 
fading so fast 
that people loose track of its original art. 
Its original words spoken from the heart. 
Twisted to form a dreadfully big part of todays young minded. 
Twisted to make people live so frightened. 
I am the last of a dying breed. 
A lyricist set to bring people a new creed. 
Hope that I will make the correction. 
Hope, that I will become a legend. 
The one. The only. 
Francisco Martinez: Changed the game slowly. 
Somebody once told me: 
"your words will change a life." 
He told me I will become this generations muse. 
I took that in and believe I'll never loose. 
Still, the last of a dying breed. 
Give me a pencil and I'll personally plant the seed. 
Will personally lead the next generation of the American Dream. 
Bring back the history of the verse. 
And don't be the first,to doe of the thirst that causes this curse to only get worse 
and worse. 
Follow me my fellow lyricists. 
Believe that we will come back from this. 
Pencil at hand, let's rebel out of the abyss.

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

Can it

Why do I chase the atom?
when the universe has always been mine.
Can love evolve from red giant
into a galaxy?
Dust and stone
become skin and bone,
born; fall and rise again.


I love the black holes
of your eyes
for they radiate
much more light 
than they could ever take.
White hot coals made to rake
caked surface of my lungs.


How I long to see your breath
steam up the silence in my soul.
Droplets, turn into rapids
and rush my question away.
I tripped; stumbling
my spirit crumbling.
Hold; release those fingers.


Strength born of sugar
does not last, and it feeds fear
I need complex and organic
Can rotten become fresh?
Carry the inner babe
Cain and brother Abe.
Save: heal the tether.

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

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

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

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

Enchanted evening

Some enchanted evening, you may see a stranger
you may see a stranger across a crowded room,
an' somehow you know, you know even then,
that somewhere you'll see her again and again!

Some enchanted evening, someone may be laughing
you may hear her laughing across a crowded room,
an' night after night as strange as it seems
the sound of her laughter will sing in your dreams!

Who can explain it, who can tell you why,
fools give you reasons, wise men never try!

Searching For My Lord

 (verse 1)
I can't hear Him,
I can't see Him,
But I know He's very close to me.

I can't feel Him,
I can't touch Him,
But I know He's got his eyes on me.

So Im packing up my bags,
Praying He'll take me by the hand,
Cause Im going to search around this world,
For my Lord.

(chorus)
Im searching high,
Im searching low,
Im searching everywhere around the world for my Lord.

Im searching to,
Im searching fro,
Im searching everywhere around the world for my Lord.

 (verse 2)
He created this world,
With His own two hands.
He has turned the Red Sea,
To dry land.

He has saved Noah,
And Noah's family
And I know He'll do the same,
For you and me.

So brethrens and sisters,
Lets all pack up our bags,
Cause we're going to search around the world,
For our Lord.

 (chorus)
We're searching high,
We're searching low,
We're searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

We're searching to,
We're searching fro,
We're searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

(verse 3)
Im searching for my Lord,
In your eyes.
Im searching for my Lord,
In your heart.
Im searching for my Lord'
In your soul.
Searching for that love'
Thats purer then gold.

 (verse 4)
Do you believe in Him,
Like He believes in you.
Do you show Him that your love,
Is true.

Yes I love my Lord,
And I know He loves me.
For that is what the Bible,
Tells me.

So brethrens and sisters,
Lets all pack up our bags,
Cause we're going to search around the world,
For our Lord.

 (chorus)
We're searching high,
We're searching low,
We're searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

We're searching to,
We're searching fro,
We'er searching everywhere around the world for our Lord.

Oh yes we're searching everywhere,
Around the world,
In your eyes,
In your heart,
In the soul of yours,

FOR OUR LORD

My Friend The Piano

You carried my emotions from the start
Each emotion bound in the small black note
Each one coming straight from my chilly heart
The music you make is my antidote
Through the preludes my comfort softly lay
By way of mazurkas my soul does fly
But to divulge you must learn how to play
Although learning is not a piece of pie
Piano brings emotions around town
You have the power to bring my heart up
Or throw me on the floor and beat me down
There are hard times when I just want to cup
My hands in my face and rock back and forth
And think Piano is a friend of worth

ATMOSPHERE,

A lonesome dove

feathered white.

The branch strong,

time light.

...no "wait".

A dream.

really blowing a sweet breeze.

...no "wait".

A heart beat sitting in a tree,

spirit like,

...no "wait".

A rhyme.

...of atomosphere.

Beyond What's Seen

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

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

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

Voices Of The Night (Revised)

(Verse 1)
Are you afraid of what you don’t understand
Maybe its that guiding light in the dead of night
Or messages given through the stages of life
For me even as a child tomorrow’s been whispering clue’s

(Bridge)
Am I a fool for believing in all those dreams
Pictures in my mind talking to me
Tomorrow is calling today showing my destiny
Am I blessed with an inner gift or am I going insane

(Hook)
Voices of the night
Spiritual souls protecting and guiding our lives
Voices of the night
Spiritual souls helping us to be aware
Voices of the night
Hints from the other side

(Verse 2)
When you close your eyes at night.. just visualize
Reach your hands out into the air.. just believe.
Then open your eyes with surprise
Your destiny in the palm of your hands

(Bridge)
I had another dream last night lots of symbology
Children were laughing and playing
A little boy waved his hand and a rose appeared
I woke up to sunshine and a rose billboard out my window

(Hook)
Voices of the night
Spiritual souls protecting and guiding our lives
Voices of the night
Spiritual souls helping us to be aware
Voices of the night
Hints from the other side

EYE Don't See -Part 2-

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When will you be set free?

SET UP

Set up, high up
Where the clouds starts the race
Reaching,  calls for grace
Not knownly, you stand a chance

Set up, high up
Stands way above norms
Calling unto non but God
Dredged fully in thy good
For a course called Gold

Set up, high up
A dream unknown to these eyes
Light in tunnel dark
Fight to tunnel bright
True success, now you know

Set up, high up
Morals beyond Saints
Emitting gliming virtues
Yearned by all

Set up, high up
Up high
A realm of immortality
Not carnal but in deed
Known to generations

Set up 
To ride high, up high.

Rant #01

My life flutters by, like a butterfly.. a lullaby,
Making me cry and sigh, untill I die,
I'm lying here thinking..  it's all been a waste,
Just a hasty taste, of all the pleasures I've chased.

This P.M.A, which I display, every day,
Is the only way, I'll make it through.. yeah, I'm Okay,
Positivity, with a Darkside twist,
Missing the point..  do I even exist?

I kissed the lips of fate, now I cannot escape,
The caped-crusader, keeps me safe, from ass-rape.
I predict, great things!  For me, at any rate,
Inflating my ego, fashionably late.

Now I've arrived, only the Fastest will survive,
Use your double talking jive, none will be left alive!
But If you don't attack..  I won't have to defend,
And send you to Hell, let's pretend this is the end.

Draw up a treaty, sweety.  What we want is Peace,
Not monopoly on World War 3, this madness.. it must cease!
Are YOU insane?  'Causing pain?  Check your brain!
The lame-ass excuses all remaining the same.. again.

My Brain's a machine, running at obscene speeds,
You don't know my thoughts, my words or all my deeds,
My needs are the same as yours.. we both bleed,
So read the writing on the wall, and your mind will be freed.

They say I'm LoCo.. smoke too much, it's a joke.. oh!
My Woman's been messing 'round town.. go get the gun Joe,
Slow down! Where you going?  I'm just blowing off steam!
Blowing up time.  In space, can't hear you scream.

NO!  I'm not mad!  I'm totally sane,
But it feels like sometimes, we're all on a crazy train.
First-class ticket, next stop.. the Asylum,
I need the Ghostbusters!  There's no answer when I dial 'em!

So who am I gonna call?  The Police will arrest ME!
For aggravated assualt.. they're not getting me easy!
Lock me up?  With no fags and no drink?
I'm gonna go ballistic!  You'd better go and fetch the Shrink!

You wanna hold me back?  Get the Feds and the Army,
I'll take some drastic measures if you really wanna harm me!
Calm yourself down.. learn to see with both eyes,
Time flies..  surprising how fast it slips by.

To give up... Or not...

 Fierce...Frightening...Hateful...

 Defense...Fear...Braking...

 Like a hawk chasing a mouse is the way it follows me.
 Like a child's scream of pain it tortures me.

 I run. I flee.
 Begging, screaming to be free.

 It entangles my limbs like wild growing vines.
 No matter where I go I trip over the lines.
 
 I'm tired of running. Tired of not knowing what to feel.
 Are these thoughts and feelings my own? Are they real?

 I lay down and curl up. I decide not to fight. 
 I want to give up. That is MY right. 

 As I begin to give up I feel something new. 
 Anger. Its proud, horrifying and could not be more true.

 I jump up and let out a howling scream. I will not give up.
 I will take control. This is my dream. 

 I rip through the vines and pick up my feet. 
 I begin to run forward. I will not retreat. 

 I see something bright. Its so close. 
 I almost gave up. I almost froze. 

 I kept going and found the sunlight. I'm no longer lost. 
 I gave a good fight no matter the cost.

 Now I've ceased what I want to cease.
 Close your eyes and breathe. 

 Its peace.

Jill Scott

"Love rain down on me..."
she bellows sweetly
I drink her soul through
the sounds
Letting me into her universe
dripping with love, food, imagery
a beautiful symphony of words
"Slowly, surely, I walked away from..."
the thought of turning my  cd off
Jazz seeping through my pores 
melting me like chocolate in hand
'I understand what you sayin' girl!!!'
Moving feet with every beat
"Love rain down on me..."


Author's Note: Some of the words in this piece are from actual songs. Jill Scott 
has been a tremendous influence in my poetry. Her music and words are 
constant companions. Much respect to her.

The Glow of Soft Truths

the glow of soft truths
tucked between the folds of the heart

radiates through the coarse fabric of each fleeting day

transcending the hurdles that litter the way

extinguishing the trepidation and the unfounded fears away

beyond the very now with an eye firmly gazing towards the coming morrow

where genuine peace may be found while dispelling the nasty sting and the solitary sorrow

and when that moment is finally found

when peace and mirth is felt all around

the bliss may seem plentiful, and the being with simple joy may abound

without a word being spoken

without the din, the static of the endless drone

so infused with soothing music, yet hardly making a sound

for the truth of peace that lies in wait

just beyond the corner

is a truth that may never be sought

or bought

for that truth of peace must be ushered inside

until deep in the soul it will then quietly reside...

You are the valley - between
The mountains guarding us all,
Building strength to fragile bones,
Welcoming a stream of hope
You are my map - lending me

YOUR helping hand I would take
Now, I could take Your challenge
You are like a maze filled with
Mysteries conceal the truth;
I fight with all of my might
And I BEG for Your mercy
To mend my once blissful dreams!

How I long for Your mercy...

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!

Raw Love

(Just for the record, I have this as a actual rap I have done)
You think this one time I may not finally find my way?
Go my own way? Turn these colors to a non gray?
Well… I may not have the power, nor the fame…
But ill be forgotten if I don’t feel ashamed…
Playing this old game, sitting in the rain…
Its all the same…
Then you…
Yeah, my one and only figure, is holy matrimony with my honey
Think its funny, think im lonely, yeah well you’re the only.. one..
Its happy to me and it’s another cut to you…
Haha, sure, come on to me so you can feel me…
In with the new, out with the old, finally, I don’t feel so cold.
So much is blunt, but bold and true, why you think im staring at you?
Haha, not to make a problem but dang, you make me speak to you
Up the creek now, better run and get away
Save me now, im laying down waiting…
Meditating, sensations, interrogating
Making this fascist plot, I got it, waiting on the moment
You want me, feel me
Play me, Do me
Well I tell you what, get on top of me
I need you, your my only power
Ouch, oh well, to bad, your sour
Get mad, oh look, before you know it we take flight, the screen turns bright
Screw the screws tight, start to bite, no light, hit me with all yo might
Right… you wish you were me, actually, I may begin to see
That our only hero is the number zero
Sensations, embarkations, calculations
Mistaken, raking, you don’t know me man
Pessimistic you call me, I see your value and raise you realistic
Sporadic using me for your own evil, see no evil, hear no evil
Dweeble and going nowhere, I swear these creations are unreal
Surreal no one says to me, I am the key, the lea way to yo own fate
Haha, you a little bit late, no time to start a new slate
Come on baby, come here, let me see clear
Hear my breath, no wealth, in depth
Manipulate the conceiving love that is, and maybe
Certainly, constantly, loving you, yeah, now the color turns to blue
While we stick like glue, we fall like rocks, get back up like nothing
And keep going on into a practice that you seem to be so good at
Dang, were crazy aint we, haha
Go on out, wait for you to come back in town
Bring me around, ties off, shows on, such a pretty blonde, take that skimp off
Take a crimp to you, feel you, touch you, violate you, incognita you
One more sip of the margarita, amanita, come on over here
Don’t tell me to hush, make you blush, touch
I love you
I know this much
Hush
No more times that I can count on for no one to be there
Be fair
Your always there, because you care

Neverland

Sometimes I wish that I could be, a little boy who was just like me. When I was young and not afraid, of anyone or anything. 
   I'll take my time to lose it all. But learn to run before I crawl.  So far away from everything. That this cruel world has thrown on me. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all. So hold onto, your happy thoughts. Grip childhood dreams, don't let them rot!

   I'll shake some hands, and crack a smile. I'm in no rush, I'll be here a while.  To face this world, all on my own. But in your arms, I'm not alone. 
   So take my hand, and hold it tight. Let's spread our wings, and take to flight. We'll break the boundaries, of any road. And go seek out, our pot of gold. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all. So hold onto, your happy thoughts. Grip childhood dreams, let the bad ones rot!
   
Sometimes I believe in miracles. Sometimes I hate this cold hard world. 
Sometimes I just break down and cry. 
That's when my angels help me fly. 

Carry me, high upon your shoulders. Don't let me, grow any older. For Neverland, is where we make it. I'm happy now, no need to fake it. 
   In troubled times, I drift away. And let my childhood memories play. When lost and lonely, pick up the phone. Dear mom and dad, I'm coming home. 

Hearts may break, as teardrops fall. But love and time, will heal us all...

Blow Me Away

I was thinking aloud
My head got stuck up in the clouds
Everyone could hear the whispers in my mind
Thought what a waste of Human kind

Come on say it,
You wish I would go away,
Know you want to blow me away
I don’t care
Never ever did I wanted to stay
It’s a shame though 
You have nothing to dream
And 
I got millions to spare

I stood still as they danced around
They danced around listening to the fake sound
Every one had a shiny crown 
While I dressed up as a clown 

Come on say it,
You wish I would go away,
Know you want to blow me away
I don’t care
Never ever did I wanted to stay
It’s a shame though 
You have nothing to dream
And 
I got millions to spare

Ballad of a Young Man

Jonathan Moore had a cocktail queen
She lit up the skylight, move over Charlene!
Crack-jack milly-dilly four and a teen
Ain't come round here, she's in Johnny Moore's dream

Coastal giant wave-rider, top of the scene
Never quite made it up to see Magdalene
Jiffy-miff hacky-tack four and a teen
Thousand words a picture, on top o' James Dean

California jelly-bean, man overseas
Peasantry drinkin' up moonlight 'n' tea
Fenny-benny piggle-wiggle four and a teen
Coffee growers naggin' 'bout Jack and the Bean

Kissing tigers wanderin' through coal mine reeds
Took his twenty dollars, 'twas more than they'd seen
Cally-cat whistle-whine turn a new leaf
Never known a joker didn't have him a thief

Country Highway Song

Rollin down the highway
Just a little bit side ways
Everything is going my way
Driving all the by ways
Except I don't have the time

Think I'm gonna take a back way
I know its not the easy way
Well thats just what they all say
But its my way
Ill keep rollin tell Im out of sight

If your going my way
Climb on in we will have us a time
We will listen to every song thats played
I hear every word you say
And yes I'm gonna blow your mind

Rollin down the Highway
Think Ill take a back way
Not the easy way
well thats just what they all say
Gotta do things my way
And I still dont have the time

Gonna keep rollin tell Im out of sight ,yeah

So only the book burnt

As how can I be poured again

Road Trip to Freedom

            As soon as I get this done I’m going to Freedom
          As soon as I finish this work I’m going to Freedom
                  There’s always more to get done 
                   There’s always less time for fun
          How am I gonna get on the road to go to Freedom?

         The work is never gonna be done to go to Freedom
          How am I gonna get it all done to go to Freedom?
                          We all need a break
                    It’s not given, we gotta take
          That’s the day that I hit the road to go to Freedom

              I finally figured out a way to go to Freedom
                    I figured out how to get to Freedom
                       You see, Freedom’s not a place
                        To escape the human rat race
                Freedom is a way to be and I’m in Freedom

              A state of mind, not a place, that is Freedom
                We all can hit the road and go to Freedom
                           Just an attitude adjustment
                        And a mind set you have busted
             Before you know it, you’re livin’ high in Freedom

One Voice

It only takes one voice to start a song With someone else there… to sing along And pretty soon, you may well see The entire world singing happily There is that one voice within us all It’s pride and fear that hides the call But, if just one would raise a voice Others would follow as a matter of choice So loud and strong, that one should sing Happiness to all, that person may bring By starting the world off… in that song Then everyone else will just sing along Do not be afraid of the changes you make Life can only improve by the choices we take And if the lyrics for that moment seem wrong Then quiet the voice and start a new song One person can change the whole world we know By deciding to stand to let their voice grow Do not back down when it’s your time to sing You’ll be so surprised by what your voice brings Within the air, all the voices you’ll hear Will be of the many that overcame fear Standing to sing, despite those who wait They’re the voices of those, who contribute to fate Do not be afraid of the changes you make Life can only improve by the choices we take And if the lyrics for that moment seem wrong Then quiet the voice and start a new song Be that one voice Sing from your heart Don’t hide in the shadows You can be now the start

Half a Heart

Once in a while, It would be good to feel, That I'm not alone, That I AM real. Once in a while, It would be kinda nice to know, That I'm not invisible, That I'm not a Hoe. (MEANING GARDENING TOOL) But only having half a heart, Makes it kinda hard to move on. I will learn a lot, From his little con. I am a dreamer, I am a believer, But when I am only left with half heart. It's kinda hard not to take rejection hard. Another one is walking around, With his little stripper, His little crown. She has no idea who she'd end up with, Giving birth in the hospital. No one with her. But only having half a heart, Makes it kinda hard to move on. I will learn a lot, From his little con. I am a dreamer, I am a believer, But when I am only left with half heart. It's kinda hard not to take rejection hard. Raise our hands, Clap to the beat, Of a hummingbird's wings. Just remember I'm still here, The only one, The only one, In love with you... But only having half a heart, Makes it kinda hard to move on. I will learn a lot, From his little con. I am a dreamer, I am a believer, But when I am only left with half heart. It's kinda hard not to take rejection hard. We are strong, Cold to the core, We gotta let you know, We're not your doll anymore.

Revived in the Rain

The lightning in my mind
To pierce through the night
And now I can not hide
The truth has come to light

The failure of a man
The child had to demand
Collapsed in glowing rain
Conducting every shame

The walls have crumbled down
Revealing what I found
Before I looked away
Truth empowered by the day

The night could never last
As long as I could ask
What have I now betrayed?
When will I be okay?

There was nowhere I could turn
Nothing left to yearn
No way could I try
But now it burns my eyes

The lightning in this storm
Unveiling every form
Silhouette of what is gone
Breaking into dawn

And everything is known
Beyond the dark below
The rain reveals the flow
And the fallen start to grow

The lightning through my heart
Reviving one more start
Awake and now at peace
The light has pulled me to my feet

I'm A Goddess

I'm a goddess
My flow is unspeakable
Not too many situations are infeasible
A goddess
I'm surely irresistible
Besides my persona the reason isn't invisible
A goddess
I'm gracious always
A real stand up woman the woman she don't play
A goddess
Courageous in all ways
Up against a man my heart will outweigh
A goddess
A woman with intuition
A passion for life and the quality of it's condition
A goddess
I'm a woman authentically
Progressively complexity, I love my femininity

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major


Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,

swirling,

to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 
kisses,

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 
passion,

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 
hues,

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 
rhyme,

pleading,
forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

DREAM ON

“Dream On”

Hm, my heart as it slips out of my reach
Like the waves of the sea, flowing passed the palm of my hand
Do you know what I mean? You’re eyes are as blue and playful as the sunlit, gorgeous beach
You caught my pair of eyes…I’m so mesmerized beyond reason and logic… you understand
Dream on, genuine angel of angelic joy and thanksgiving – fight the good fight 
Fight with your perpetual might…for you are my sun-drenched sight…guiding me – you were the apple to my eye…now, you’re my emerald compass, leading me to my haven

Dream on, it’s your dream to dream on day and night

Take wing from on high (don’t let your High Spirits dry)
You’re beyond compare – I can’t deny
I’ve loved you forever it seems
You have the same essence as my miraculous dreams
Dream on, dear sunlight from the moon
Soon, you’ll be by my side and you’ll relieve the gloom…from my heart…I hear your graceful tune

Dream on, it’s your passion to dream on day and night

Ooh, yeah – I adore your amber eyes…
I can’t wait to earn your priceless love back
I really love to fall in love with you – no lies
I beseech of your approval, my angelic dove…I won’t let you be that last magazine in the magazine rack
This illegal, untamed nature within me…you crossed my mind…
You pounded to the rhythm of my heart…I held your hand in mine and no one was left behind…
There’s more gold to find
In your eyes…I was never…sincerely…blind

Dream on, it’s your dazzling, flawless, and lovely nature to dream on day and night

Take wing from on high (don’t let your High Spirits dry)
You’re beyond compare – I can’t deny
I’ve loved you forever it seems
You have the same essence as my miraculous dreams
Dream on, dear sunlight from the moon
Soon, you’ll be by my side and you’ll relieve the gloom…from my heart…I hear your graceful tune

Dream on, it’s about time you dream on day and night

I was young and foolish once upon a time
You and I have astonishing alienated ambition – we’re on the same bus
You kept me going and I zoomed on like a racecar…I dreamed on…though I’m left with a scar, so shattered, yet so sublime
So far, I’ve been thinking very highly of you…you’re dead, but never truly gone in my heart…ooooh….baby – don’t fuss
I’m all ears for you…oh baby, don’t cry
I was there for you…oh darling, never wave goodbye 
I’m always by your side
Like a handsome husband and a beautiful bride
Let’s hold hands and wish for the best in our future journeys in the lifetime 
Blissful dreaming was never a curse nor is it against the rules, so let us have fun this time

Dream on, you were always meant to dream on day and night

Take wing from on high (don’t let your High Spirits dry)
You’re beyond compare – I can’t deny
I’ve loved you forever it seems
You have the same essence as my miraculous dreams
Dream on, dear sunlight from the moon
Soon, you’ll be by my side and you’ll relieve the gloom…from my heart…I hear your graceful tune

Dream on, dream on, I know you felt like an ugly duckling, abandoned…alone; but, nevertheless, dream on day and night

I danced the night away with a merry spirit in mind and soul
I fell in love so easily…but I kept on dreaming on…seeing her beauty shimmer anew like diamonds in the dark cave
I looked at you in a light-year moment…I caught a glimpse of your shine, contrary to mine; yet, you released the bad energy and tension from my skull
I got out of breath the moment my eyes met your own…we exchange smiles of everlasting fantasies…can you help me be brave?

Dream on, you were always meant to dream on day and night

Take wing from on high (don’t let your High Spirits dry)
You’re beyond compare – I can’t deny
I’ve loved you forever it seems
You have the same essence as my miraculous dreams
Dream on, dear sunlight from the moon
Soon, you’ll be by my side and you’ll relieve the gloom…from my heart…I hear your graceful tune

Dream on, genuine angel of angelic joy and thanksgiving – fight the good fight 

Fight with your perpetual might…for you are my sun-drenched sight…guiding me – you were the apple to my eye…now, you’re my emerald compass, leading me to my haven
I’m happy-go-lucky and I take wing from on high…hand in hand, we’ll fly high like a kid’s kite, caught in the wind of pleasure-wild plight
With you by my side, I feel mighty happy… we help each other through out the night… I would never neglect you as long as you fly with me tonight

Dream on, it’s your right to dream on day and night

Book of Will - Will

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

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

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

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

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

The Journey of Your Song



It's a lonely, truthful journey
 finding your voice, with which to sing,
 even worse, then there's the journey for your song;
 
but, we all sing from our essence
 to share the truths each heart may bring,
 so sing out loud, sing out clear, and sing out strong.
 
After a while, you may meet someone
 who may fancy the same "life tune",
 but, their performance of the song does not ring, true:
 
I can't emphasize enough, my friend
 that we all live the songs we choose,
 and that the melodies, and lyrics always falls on you.
 
That's why I sing the Blues these days,
 and feel as lonely as the moon,
 there's a certain honesty in reminding folks of pain;
 
and how next time it might be avoided
 by adding "blue-notes" to the tune,
 to draw attention, so it can't happen to us again.
 
Now, the other side of those "blue-notes
 is a more joyful, hopeful tune,
 to remind us that our hearts aren't always wrong;
 
it's merely "par for the course",
 to sing of both sweet love, and pain...
 ..but, that's the blues.....and that's the, Journey of Your Song.

Off to Margaret river

It’s coming up soon, we’ll be going
The all of us going south west
Were going to a place midst the vineyards
Whenever I’m there I feel blessed
We’re going, the whole of our family
Some cousins from England, they too
We’re off to that lush Margaret river
Oh lord I’ll be glad when we do.

I know we are going to enjoy it
There’s the river, the shops and the ocean
And wineries sometimes prove tempting
To some It’s a lovely devotion
To have one or two, or maybe some more
But I’m for me beer, and me cider
But here in this place by the river
My smile it does ever grow wider

Oh yippy I oh, I do love it so
When all of us go off together
We’ll have us a ball, in a wonderful place
It don’t matter what be the weather
I love it when I’m in the country
With nothing to worry about
Except just enjoying, each wonderful day
This shall be, on this have no doubt.

Been Blessed

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Between and About

Twixt And between
Never quite there
But never will I stop.
I work and ponder
Forever moving 
Searching around and about.

There are times I wonder, where I really am?
Will I ever achieve my goals?
And what are the goals I’m searching for?
Are they really what I want?
Do I know which way to go?
Or should I start all over and begin again?

We’re all here at times in our lives…
Till every thing will finally become clear.
Then, some how I’ll be there again:
Twixt and between
Never quite there…
Here I go again.

Fluff Contest: This poem is definately full of fluff.

To Have A Rainbow

I need you, like I need the sunlight.
I want you, like I want for spring.
You’re deep inside my heart for a reason.
The reason’s you’re my everything,
Wonderful. Colorful.
It feels so good to me.
So good to me, to have a rainbow.

I need you, like I need the daybreak.
I want you, like I want for love.
You’re deep inside my heart for a reason.
The reason’s that you rise above,
Majesty…Symmetry.
It feels so good to me.
So good to me, to have a rainbow.

You and me,
Faultlessly,
Wandering like the wind,
Playing in the tempered sky.
Breezily. Merrily.
We laugh the laugh of three,
Whenever rain-clouds pass us by.

I need you, like I need the moonlight.
I want you, like I want for fall.
You’re deep inside my heart for a reason.
The reason’s that you’ve got it all.
Easy-street, can’t compete.
It feels so good to me.
So good to me, to have a rainbow.

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!!!

ENLIGHTENING LOVE

When the eclipse of Sun darkens entire universe,
The drought-infested soil waits for tender shower.
Love comes, delivers it from that dreadful curse,
Pouring its enlightening shower from holy bower.

All pains, struggles, sufferings seem non-existent
When there is love, when there is love’s presence.
After eclipse, sun appears brighter, clear, content.
After stings of Dark, Love brings a luminescence.

The lamp of love enlightens interiors of the heart
Where vermin try to eat up the veins of morality.
Love renews the heart by clearing the fallen dirt,
Awakens drowsy world with trumpet of equality.

Child's Play


I watch you play upon the stairs,
 
 Lost in your childhood games,
 
 Built by your imagination,
 
 With freedom and no restraint.
 
 Today you are a sailor,
 
 The captain of your ship,
 
 Sailing on the ocean sea,
 
 Procuring a long summer trip.
 
 You sing a song
 
 That you have loved,
 
 Words of an old lullaby,
 
 You sing a song on the stairs today,
 
 Singing loud—you’re not shy.
 
 The stairs are now a jungle,
 
 A land that you explore,
 
 With a monkey and a zebra,
 
 A tiger and a vicious wild boar.
 
 You pretend you’re on a skyscraper
 
 High up in the sky,
 
 Playing like you’re really there,
 
 And wishing you could fly.
 
 Once again, you’re hungry,
 
 Therefore, you stop and eat your lunch,
 
 You’ll be a chef in your own shop,
 
 There’s not much time to stop.
 
 The stairs are now a cherry tree
 
 In your own loved backyard,
 
 With grass and flowers, and bumble bees,
 
 Except in this tree, you cannot scrape your knees.
 
 The stairs yet again, a mountain top
 
 Reaching high into the sky,
 
 But all too soon, it’s evening time
 
 And now, no more time to climb.

Turn the searchlight on

Another tribute to John and Carla Sherman.


Turn the searchlight on

Turn the searchlight on
Let it bath you in it’s light
Take a look into you
Just look with all your might
Let the world be round you
But don’t pay it no mind
Just turn around and look at you
You’re not too hard to find.

Don’t ask so many questions
Beside the point these be
You have to do the looking
So very endlessly
The looking’s never over
It be your life, that’s all
Then one day when the fever breaks
It’s all so wonderful.

You have to do the looking
That’s all you have to do
Just take a look into you
Oh please just look at you
You must use self -reliance
Can’t count on no one else
The looking is the only way to health.

You don’t have to look for Gurus
No need for all the books
All you really have to do
Is stop and take a look
Then when the fear of life is gone
You’ll see life how it is
Just look, look, look each chance you get
I can only tell you this.

Beloved

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle 
till the day you die.

You play in the sunshine
and dance with the moon,
you dress your hair up
with the flowers of June.

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle,
my love, don't cry.

You dress up in fashion,
wear nothing at all,
just be sure that 
you hear when I call.

Loved by the earth,
loved by the sky,
caught in the middle 
till the day you die.

Just Praising

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

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

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

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

A brief encounter

How lucky a penny would prove

Where simple beauty and comfortable elegance laid across the table

Searching for the right combinations the conversation became fluid

Rapier wit and a definitive style attracted individual attention

As time forced its way through, the room became smaller

The game such as it was, now but a mere distraction

The crossroads approaching a separation of spirit; a return to self

Alas, a smile, a farewell

A pleasure

The Climb

Feeling like I'm falling fast,
Wanting the dizziness to pass.
Spiraling downward, out of control.
Don't want to lose, but must let go.
Remembering to pull the cord,
Quitting is something we can't afford.
Scared of what the furure can bring.
Shocked at the thought of alot of things.
Holding on to each other for another hour,
As we start to climb back up the tower.
Our faith in ourselves pushes us to try again.
Remembering when we first began.
Hand in hand, we scale the wall.
Helping each other so neither will fall.
Praying for the strength to keep going.
Pushing forward without even knowing.
Fear seems to slowly be fading away,
As the sun rises and brings forth a brand new day.
Together we rest as we reach the top.
Our dreams and hopes wouldn't let us stop.
We sit and watch as the new day starts.
As one, we're forever connected... One Soul, One Heart.

Virtue


Today's the day I can hear people talk
Jesus is coming...Lord help me walk
I'm so tired and weak and I look like chalk
But I must go
So many people here shouting and loud
I know He won't see me just one in the crowd
As I touched His hem He turned around
Oh God! He knows!

But I heard Jesus can heal me
Though tradition just won't let me
Get close enough or touch Him
I'm unclean
If I can make it through this crowd
Without getting knocked to the ground
Just get close enough   touch His hem
I know I'll be clean...

I couldn't hide as He looked for me
So I fell at His feet and told Him everything...

Lord for 12 long years I have suffered
First one doctor and then another
What they did to me would make you shudder
If you only knew
They took everything I had
And left me feeling twice as bad
Lord there's got to be something
That You can do

He said, "Daughter, you took a chance trusting Me...
Now live blessed for you're whole and clean"

And I know Jesus can heal you
So don't let tradition be stopping you
Just get close enough to touch His hem   and you
Will be clean...

a letter to the weak

Break this silence!
We have no more tears to cry.
Feel the strength beat inside the depths of your chest.
forgiveness is not a sign of weakness.
just let this go.
take one deep breath.
open your lungs.
quit going through the motions.
grab ahold of something real.
don't you fake it.
time can't be wasted.
live as you choose.
just believe in something true.
walk on.
you're not alone.
these scars you hid are what have made you.
you are stronger than you look.
press on.
inhale/exhale
you have nothing to lose.
the hourglass is emptying.
don't let another second pass you by.

Train Track Jamboree

Railway bridges broken
Close to Kennesaw
Dreamin drivin alternating patterns of nightfall

Transcendental clothesline
Draw another frame
Elevatin transitory wielders of disdain

Washed beside the azure fabric
Of mystery melted and dry
Preservation ringing bells
To swallow your pride and
Try, magnificent, try

Telepathic skyways
Cloaked in jest unwound
Ruminating motionless, a coast without a sound

Intent on raising conscience
Revolving retrograde
Cast your eyes into the distance, subtle creature made

I dont think so

dreary eyes cast over the clouds,
 through a misty haze,
 that seems to rise up from the underground.


he can still feel the pain in his back,
but ya know,
it isnt all bad,
no its not like that
no
ya gotta think again
cause im sure your wrong
ya gotta turn ya mind around and be real strong
cause all youll ever hear me say
is exactly what your gunna say to them
an thats all he said


I DONT THINK SO!
NO I DONT THINK SO!

i can tell ya right now
the will is strong
an i can see somebody
sayin
well wasnt I wrong

CAUSE I DONT THINK SO!

In a million years
will it still be the same?
will he still feel the pain
in the back side of his life?

I dont think so
i can tell you right now 
that the will is strong
i can see somebody 
sayin 
well wasn't i wrong

In Unity, We Are Free in Space

I was s-so scared of the dark, grazing in my own maze…I was 
lost and I thought I’d never be found…
I don’t know why I am such a hypocrite – I tell others not to act selfishly and I act 
that way way too many times – I’m so numb and dumb – I’m spinnin’ around and 
round and round…
The liquids of lament spring out of my eyes like a waterfall of wistfulness – get my 
feet off the ground
 Lift me higher than the disconsolate clouds above me – clothe me with your vast 
grace…my thankfulness weighs more than a pound!
*Chorus with gospel singers and a nice ending to wrap up this song*: 
Oooh I knew you would come back
Ooooh I knew you would come back to me…
I’m no longer that magazine, alone on the magazine rack 
The tears of contentment stream down my blue-green eyes like a river of bliss – 
show me how to reach to Cloud seven with you with peace-abiding angels, crafting 
miracles all around us…
We all gaze at their glistening, super talents eagerly, as if we’re staring at the 
sunset with hope wrapped around us – embrace the sweet serenity and let’s run 
this race…
Together, forever…
Together, forever…
I knew you would come back
Oooh…all of the sudden, there’s no debt stack
‘Cause you made it disappear…now, I have no fear…
I’m not insecure when I’m here with you – hopeful delight draws near
I knew for certain, with a touch of confidence, that you would back to me…
I wish I knew you from the inside 
Instead of judging you from the outside
Your true colors are crystal clear to me (you are intriguing and you’re so full of 
bravery)
You sparkle with genuine love – you’re beautiful inside and out no doubt – you 
smile so preciously
(I would do anything to spend time with you again in unity)

More Doors

I must sit down and turn around
 be mindful as I sit,
 
the reason you can't see my face
 is it's covered with your spit!
 
This gravy-train is quite insane
 I chew my food real good;
 
I have a way of saying things
 but I'm so, misunderstood!
 
It's alright, I'll be polite
 and say what's on my mind;
 
if negatives breed negatives
 I'll be the other kind.
 
With borrowed soap, I can't lose hope
 and air my cares outside;
 
if the time's not right and at this height,
 it'll be impossible to hide!
 
Tweedle-dee, and tweedle-dum
 no worries in the rain;
 
all my good and bad times
 end up going down the drain.
 
Seems to me my final plea
 won't say as much as yours;
 
my journey's almost over
 while you've still a lot more doors !

My Mountain

My mountain is tall
cant even see the top
I climb and climb
sometimes I slip and fall 
or hit rock bottom
but I keep going
never stopping
every now and then 
I get company
they never stick around
but the times we have
are never to be forgotten
wether they helped me climb higher
take a step back
or stopped me from climbing at all
one day I'll be able to see the top
Ill stand on my mountain
and yell so that every soul
living or dead
can hear me yell the words
I Made It!!!

Overcome

Cast into hatred by all I’d seen
I blinded myself to escape disease
Then numbness commanded this lost machine
And all that was left was what could have been

Searching for gold I could not decide
Why to be when what’s left is a frightened lie
This paradox threw me beneath the sky
And above holy ground I then realised

Born into silence I witnessed hate
Overcome by the violence to then sedate
Emotions examined to then relate
To recapture the moments we witness fate

Writing; redeeming to improve sight
To examine my fears will give birth to flight
The past turns to future, and overnight
My wings have expanded to gather light

Cast into beauty by all I know
With a vision connected to every soul
And a memory that proves that we can all grow
And that beyond every fear our spirit flows

ABOVE AND BEYOND

Whenever tears roll down
somebody's face,
and whether it brings joy, reward or pain:
it matters to someone
whose life, somehow, has broken him down,
or has lifted him up through grace;
it matters when one rejoices,
and sees in victory
what his bewildered eyes
couldn't ever have imagined it to be...

He chose  the path to glory
without harboring suspicions,
or being frightened by unseen woes
and hard-and fast rules;  
he made swift choices    
and built up his courage from nothing;
and what his fearless mind couldn't perceive,
wasn't so impossible to dream,
but surely achieved
through grit and indisputable duty...

Whatever that solemn oath
relied on a certain promise, he never lost heart,
because his valor never seemed to lessen a bit;
and he was taken above and beyond his fears
by not foreseeing any disheartening defeat:
confidence had given his untiring feet a steady beat...

It matters to someone to be recognized,
and cherish that moment of gladness:
perhaps the only moment to be remembered
and be locked away in his past;
a brave soldier at his best,
never settling for anything less,
always going above and beyond his expectations,
to honor and safeguard the Country that he loves...

My Heart, Your Hands And Vice Versa

There is so much to be said.
The thoughts are swimming through my head.
I can't erase my wrongs, but I hope you see that I've changed internally.
Replacing insecurity with assurance.
We will battle the test of time.
Here's where I'll draw a line.
Right here in the sand.
Look into my brown eyes, take ahold of both of my hands.
So much to say.
The words are on the tip of my tongue.
I won't let you down.
Not this time.
I won't let you drown.
This is my last surviving chance.
The pressure is on.
My heart pulsating again and again.
Don't let go until I release everything I have kept locked in my heart.
I can't go on without telling you the truth.
This weight I've carried from the start. 
Day one.
I'm sorry I ever doubted you. 
I promise you that I'll make it up to you.
Just place your heart right here for me to see and to hold.
I'll give you my everything.
My heart. My soul.
You truly are the world to me.

Lady of My Dreams

LADY  OF  MY  DREAMS



Lady of my dreams
Moon colored 
Raven haired
Inaccessible
Like a distant shore.

Dwelling here
Closer to the heart
A reason a dream
Undefined yet real.

Moon colored pebbles
Shining among plains
A cluster 
Deeply driven
Etched like a wound
A rose or a moan
Or a crimson scar
A  luminosity
Or a distant spark.

Lady of my heart 
Moon colored 
Raven haired
Inaccessible
Like a distant star.

Breath's Away

Underneath my dream, idea tree
 with full access to my library
 where the moments only count if your breath's away;
 
tread softly through the canopy's veil
 it's anyone's guess, in this odd tale;
 are they at work? Are they at rest? Or will they play?
 
~
 
So quick! Am I to sanitize
 each moment bold, I categorize;
 so I know when one does end, and the next shall start;
 
breathe each one in, or turn to stone
 after all they're yours, and yours alone
 you gave to each one "life", inside your heart!
 
~
 
Not one thing can better describe
 the essence of a soul's own vibe,
 than, what prompts a heart to quicken like the birds;
 
we've each had footprints shadow made,
 but, sunlit footprints never fade;
 when our breath's away, each legacy needs no words !

HOW CAN A BIRD THAT WAS BORN FOR JOY SIT IN A CAGE AND SING

The Cage is so dark and so misty, I can hardly breathe there.
The words that echo there are so melancholic and appalling,
The Voices can only whisper as if they are strangled by Fear.
How can a bird that was born for joy, sit in a cage and sing!

The constellations of night, the luminescence of rainforest,
The infinite azure sky, the crimson horizon, the cozy pond,
The ocean, the stony mountains, even the shady bird-nest,
Everything summons my Heart but still it cannot respond.

My Heart is a song bird that is imprisoned in an inner Cage.
How can a bird that was born for joy, sit in a cage and sing!
Let my Heart fly towards liberty, breaking bars of bondage
So that it can sing in a merry tune again by flapping its wing.

MELLOW NOON

days of benign stealth
lawns, gardens, orchards drink to my health
the road's been unkind
well it's gone, it's flowed on behind

let me recline in this boon
mellow noon
the bell might ring
spiteful and soon

days of serene sloth
cirri bind the sky in strips of clean cloth
and they barely support its weight of light
and i circle my core like a moth

tell me whose darned flitting hand
lit this little burner just below my head
that it moves higher up with each sandbag shed
and i never knew how far my land spread

now i long for something to make
now i ache for something to wield
earthbound and sunbaked
like a worker in the field


Details | Lyric | |

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

The Succor

Live your life in great style and be cheerful  
There is someone on earth, wants you to be blissful
Smile and be ready for all others to interact with you   
Don’t allow life’s difficult situations to affect you 
Try to be strong and happy always 
Don’t worry for your failures in case 
Live your life in great style and be cheerful  
There is someone on earth, wants you to be blissful
You will shine as you have gained something so far   
See the world, compare and realize where you are 
Be positive for everything you experience 
Don’t put a frown in your appearance 
Live your life in great style and be cheerful  
There is someone on earth, wants you to be blissful
Whatever problem that may arise 
Be patient, smiling, and try to be wise 
There is no need to worry in agony when you are hurt 
Accept that something in your body needs to get repaired 
Live your life in great style and be cheerful  
There is someone on earth, wants you to be blissful
Painful it may be to your mind and heart 
The wound of tension might be your part 
Don’t harm yourself physically 
When you are hurt mentally
Live your life in great style and be cheerful  
There is someone on earth, wants you to be blissful
And don’t harm yourself mentally 
When you experience pain physically  
Like the illness that fades away 
Your failures also end one day 
Live your life in great style and be cheerful  
There is someone on earth, wants you to be blissful
Never show a poor sign 
Be sure that you will shine 
Time will come and you can easily triumph 
You will be in a position to dictate the terms 
Live your life in great style and be cheerful  
There is someone on earth, wants you to be blissful

Living Her Life

She sees the pains,
Which her native folk have gained.
She changed from a little girl
To someone who has always had the potential
To change her own little personal inner world.
As a child she never went through
What some other children of her people
Had went through themselves.

She used to never knew how the roots
Of all her people’s issues
Were and are so controversial.
Blessed was she, as a very young child,
For not knowing fully all the reasons why.

Blessed that she is and will always be
Full of feeling, and always quietly wondering “Why?”, 
Now she is filled with new knowledge and a developing sense of wisdom 
Within her own individual mind.
She is now what she had always
Envisioned and imagined before, since her elementary days.
She is (“I am...”) not entirely that same little girl anymore.
She is now one of the many of that particular kind.

Within her imagination is a longed 
Wanting of finally revealing 
The truths she has discovered and
How her people must change for the better.
Throughout her whole life, which she’s lived through so far,
She maintains a heart filled with feelings, 
A mind filled with knowledge
And a slight emotional immaturity as representation
That her inner child self is still alive on the inside.

Her inner and past child self (who was different from all the rest,
But was also similar to them when at their best).
Never truly knew how far she’d come in life.
(As of right now and forever into the future)
How she has grown and maintained herself
Is how she had made that (her) inner voice in her head and 
Had also long ago already acknowledged her true self.

She still stands in her own believing faith and faith in herself
And her lack of prejudice is what makes her naive thinking
Make her own days in her life far brighter than what others say
As they discourage her from doing 
Or trying to pursue something grand and part of a divine plan.
Even after times and tribulations involving doubting tremble.

Blessed she is for being so whole in her own presumed thoughts,
Blessed she is for logical thinking based on emotion and feelings.
Blessed she will always be, for Christ himself said to a woman
(who was suffering from something for more than 12 years), 
“Your faith is what made you whole.”
Now she thinks...
“Grateful and blessed I am, to the point of tears of joy and sorrow of how I used to doubt.
I now forever know what my life will be like beyond tomorrow.”

Not Too Far Away

My heart reads: "I miss you,"
I know you miss me too;
You're not that far away, so I write to say: "I love you."

When I am with in your presence, the room becomes brighter,
When you smile for me, my heart feels lighter,
And every time you give me huggles, my smile grows wider.

Always know, I'm your little sis,
I'll be one of those you miss,
I'm not too far away,
No matter how many times you read this.

One more stanza before i go,
This poem is just for you,
I know you realize that already,
But even though we're far apart, I love you.


***I wrote this for my brother who is locked up. I love him.***

Letting My Hair Down

Settling down with a real good book
All safe and warm inside my reading nook

Watching time go by 
As well told stories arise

Tales of dragons lives
Heroes live and die
 
All in one simple look
Maidens love and cry

All here with-in a sigh
I laugh as I day dream about the time I took

Row The Boat

Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
Even if unknown why.
Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
And man, you'll go high.

Just row the boat,
Just row the boat
Even if your hands give up.
Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
Even if you've had enough.

Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
Even if you're stalked by sharks.
Just row the boat,
Just row the boat,
No matter how grotesque bruise marks.

If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
You may reach luck's open arms.
If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
No more emptiness in your palms.

If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
At least, you gained exercise.
If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
The decision; remarkably wise.

If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
Mistake; an antonym.
If you row the boat,
If you row the boat,
You may just reach Him

I Am A Jock

A bad play
On a deep and dark September
Gazing from these bleachers
To that ref who blew that call
On a freshly painted court in the middle of fall

I am A Jock
I am A Flock


I've got balls
A fortress deep and plenty
That none will discinagrate
For friendship brings me joy
It's laughter from my best friend Roy


I am A Jock
I am A Flock

Don't talk  hate
For I've heard much before
It's resting in my head
And I'll try not to wake
So It doesn't make you cry
For if I never would of put on that cup
You've  never heard  awwwww shut up


I am A Jock
I am A Flock


I have my hooks
And my cup to protect me
I am such a world charmer
Hiding behind an ump
So another won't bump
I touch no one and he better not touch me


I am A Jock
I am A Flock


And a Jock feels no pain
And a flock seems to die




This is off spin
To Simon And Garfunkle's
I am A Rock    LOL

never forget 9-11

On that day we were all the same, we didn't know there faces, we didn't know 
there names.
There voices we heard crying all around the world, someones loving father, 
someones little girl.
On that day we were called to lead a better life, for that someones father, for that 
someones wife.
The list of souls read from above before it came below why it was and why it is the 
answer no one knows.
Through the pain we have learned lessons great and small, life, love, and happiness 
are precious cherish them all.
With grace we all go on, but never will we forget that all of these beautiful things 
can fade so very quick.
On that day we wondered, on that day we cryed, on that day we asked ourselves 
what kind of man am I?
Mothers held there children for so long and oh so tight, why did these people have 
to go this was not there fight.
We hope and pray for all those names, and the ones they left behind they gave 
their life for a question the answer we must find.

Defined By Struggle

Defined by struggle.
I've learned to endure.
To persevere.
I've been battered. broken. torn.
But i'm not afraid of what's in store.
Not anymore.
I will not lose hope. 
I cannot lose sight.
I've gained the strength through the years that I need to endure.
My heart's been scorned.
I cannot erase the past where I have weeped and I have mourned.
But today I will move forward.
I won't let you kill me.
I won't be held down.
You will no longer grip me around my throat.
I will not lose hope.
Clearing my path.
It's time for me to have the last laugh.
Looking to see what is ahead of me.
I won't be blinding by inability.
The strength inside of me will lead me in the right direction.
Stand aside and watch as I put your false perception of me to rest.
My darkest hour has passed.
I'm finished with your tests.
Everyday a struggle.
God I know that you are not finished with me yet.
But when my time comes I will have zero regrets.
My life is defined by struggle.
Perseverence.
I won't give up.

My Beloved Disease - Satisfying Cure

*Chorus*

 That’s my satisfying decision…you’re an addiction
I gottah keep pace to run this race the right way…
Alright, you’re making my day
Satisfaction is ours, baby…
Can you see it like fireworks in the sky?
Did you ever wish to be free
Like those mockingbirds and jays in the aqua-blue sky? 
You and I will receive the ability to fly
The ability to show off our inner glow…yah know…soooo…
And we’ll be putting up a show…yah know…yah know…let the wicked wind blow…

Take away my flaws…
And give me a big applause
Let go of all worries
Gather around me, my stinging, beautiful bees…
I get pleasure off of your applauses…giving me satisfaction…I feel like I’m top dog

Verse 5:
Beyonce: Mmmhmmm ohh yeahh…show me how to feel this satisfaction…
You know what I’m talking about…
Ooooooh yeahhhh…awww ooh… you know how to push my buttons, don’t yah? I 
need at least a fraction
I need a fraction of your satisfaction without a dirty, little doubt
Pinch me please…this must be a beautiful nightmare…
Pinch me please…I must be dreaming this reverie…does it ring a bell?
Pinch me please…this must be all a dream after all – I look at myself in the mirror
Pinch me please…I must be caught under your wicked spell
Rihanna: You took me out of the lion’s den ooh
I’m feeling incredible…so irreplaceable…as irresistible as chocolate cake…as fantastic

table or sweet it under the carpet…you’re not instable like a broken, tattered table
Oh baby, baby – we met in a perfect place
This feelin’s so indescribable…so irreplaceable…so irresistible…as fantastic and 
majestic as a peace-abiding angel
It was a weird moment…when I saw your sundrenched face
(Beyonce: a surreal moment when I looked at your face no doubt about that) 
Pinch me please…this must be a beautiful nightmare…
Pinch me please…I must be dreaming this reverie…does it ring a bell?
Pinch me please…this must be all a dream after all – I look at myself in the mirror
Pinch me please…I must be caught under your wicked spell


*Chorus* 

That’s my satisfying decision…you’re an addiction
I gottah keep pace to run this race the right way…
Alright, you’re making my day
Satisfaction is ours, baby…
Can you see it like fireworks in the sky?
Did you ever wish to be free
Like those mockingbirds and jays in the aqua-blue sky? 
You and I will receive the ability to fly
The ability to show off our inner glow…yah know…soooo…
And we’ll be putting up a show…yah know…yah know…let the wicked wind blow…
oooh ahhahah ohhh…
Take away my flaws…
And give me a big applause
Let go of all worries
Gather around me, my stinging, beautiful bees…
I get pleasure off of your applauses…giving me satisfaction…I feel like I’m top dog 
right now!

*Verse 6*
Lady Gaga and I: You gave me vast grace…and now, I can run this race…if I keep 
pace…when you gaze into my eyes, I’m in a different maze…you’re not a waste of 
my time…you were my sublime, drug of delight..and yah made me take divine flight 
like a kid’s toy kite…you make everything seem alright…
Me: You are the illuminated night in my mind’s eye
Beyonce: I yearn for yah vast grace…vast grace…super fast grace…super de-duper 
grace…everything you do, you never left me without a trace – embrace the light, 
everybody! You make me shed happy tears – I don’t know why…but I’m so 
happy…
Me: oooh yeah – I wanna see your face…x2 Sparkling like the blue-green sea – 
your sunrays beam…and we’re singing with  sundrenched harmony… 
Adele: You’re not a disgrace x2
Baby, I love you to the core
Oh baby, how can I love you more?
Me: I loved you with a deep, deep passion
You gave me…yah gave me
Yah gave meee….beyond satisfaction…you serve as the best distraction, wo-man! 
You gave me pure…
Both: Satisfaction…and you’re my drug of delight…you’re my beloved disease and 
my beautiful nightmare all in one…you’re not a curse – you’re a gift and a cure 
(Lady Gaga: to my heart ache…for sure…you’re my ultimate, miracle-healing cure)
Me and Beyonce: I'm a believer...
And you're my dream weaver
You're my dream catcher
I can't believe what I'm seeing...
Rihanna included: Your spirit shining bright and beaming
Me: You make me (feel like a grand king) x2 ooh oh oh! wow...oooh wahahahah 
Beyonce: Pinch me if I'm dreaming...
Rih and me: Can you hear my screaming...?
Me: At least we’re healing and recovering from the love flu – let’s shout for joy and 
let’s shout with thanksgiving!
At least we are alive and well – no longer feeling depressed, anxious, rejected and 
insecure
I ain’t bleeding out no more – let’s express our gratefulness to have such a 
satisfying cure 
OOooh ehhh…eeeee…

Spiritual Recall

Ageless in confession
Above my fear’s greed
It prays for me to falter
And forget what I believe

Life was once a symbol
A tool for self-reclaim
For honest independence
But then began this game

A world that was for taking
Advantage of the true
Through bitter, lost denials
A rebellion then ensued

Pain became infection
Never again a sign
Instead of overcoming
We chose vengeance and design

But though these things run rampant
Life is still a tool
To understand our failures
We will only find more truths

Ageless in this wisdom
Beneath my highest form
And between opposing forces
I will remember where I’m from

Better Off Now

I thought I'd never lose you,
(Obviously quite wrong),
I thought I'd never be over you,
(Again, I've been proved otherwise),
I thought we'd never laugh again,
I'd never see the light,
But when I looked into his eyes,
I realized he was right.

I'm better off without you,
I'm better on my own,
I'm better with a new love,
And now the light is shone.

I see that all the talk I heard,
Though painful, was the truth,
I may as well get over you,
And live out all my youth.

I'm better off without you, 
I'm better on my own,
I'm better with a new love,
I don't have to be alone.

I'm better off now.

Hidden Chapel

As we walk through the dense woods,
With trees like an endless hallway,
I suddenly see as we round the bend, this hidden chapel
I love it here.

With the sun making a hole through the woods,
The chapel was like an actor in the spotlight, vying for attention.
Then.... we go inside, this hidden chapel,
I love it here.

We pray to God for help and forgiveness,
And birds chirp quietly, far away.
I often wonder "How long has this chapel been here?"
I love it here.

Inside it smells unused, like no one has been here for at least 20 years.
The tile, which covers the once wooden floor, is as pale as an elephant's tusk.
Stained glass throws rainbows across the floor,
Uneven, grey stones make up the walls of this hidden chapel.
I love it here.

The tan color of the pews that are in uneven rows does not match the dark ceiling.
And music plays over the radio, the voice singing
"It's something deep within/ It's just beneath the skin/ I must confess that I feel like 
a monster!"
And we sing along, in this hidden chapel.
I love it here.

I love this place,
That is beautiful in it's own way.
This hidden chapel.
I love it here.

<3

A New Path

This is my life
And I do not fear it
This is my path
And I am proud of it

The world has been cold these days
The life I lived before was killing my faith
But I know I have to move away
To live a path that I believed each day

The colours does not seem the same
My words turning colder each time I speak
Although my obstacles remained unchanged
But it is the answer I am supposed to seek

Great challenges ahead of me
And I do not fear anymore
This is my Life, my Battle
I am the captain of this War

Fate do not control me
Because I control Fate
It is not the World I am to Blame
But the decisions that I have to make

None shall come in my way
None shall possessed my strength
I am unique and strong
I am the only one who determines myself

My Fallen bears my weakness
My Heart bears my Faith
Each time the Dawn Breaks
A New path Lies Ahead

This is my life
I have No Fear of it at all
This is my destiny
The Path which Fate had given me
To where I Rise and Fall

Empty Teardrops On My Fingertips

There is only you and me were universal speak our minds until they become controversial the current administration couldn't build a tent that's why I should run for president I would represent you all as I hate you, equally no justification just in my way, literally the broken egg shells I walk on for you to cringe your nails and do as you do Mary wasn't quite contrary on this particular conspicuous evening it seems she's overdressed for the occasion wearing nothing but a green wreath over places What's the difference between me and you? I have power beyond imagination and control of my dreams you misunderstand the smallest of things and then blame me for your state of denial I'm in a state of comfortness but must move forward in order to progress otherwise I am just oppressed or overly blessed, and won't digress.

Free Range Fear

There is too much fear in the world these days,
Fear of the unknown, scared in soo many ways!
Phobias of spiders, mice, rats and bats,
Are you frightend of nothing?  Why are you scared of that?

Scared of oppression?  And the way they use aggression?
Are they messing with your head, using psychic suggestion?
Wrestling with your doubts will only lead to fear,
Always looking into shadows.. scared that something's always near.

You're winding yourself up!  There's no reason to be scared,
But it's never as it seems.. so you'd better be prepared.
Because if you're feeling fear, it could be.. you're not ready,
With your trembling legs, and butterflies in your belly.

It's not so strange, that lots of people fear pain,
Being boiled alive, with needles stuck into your brain,
You've got to be careful, I'm afraid to say,
Be quick to make your mind up, to fight or run away.

Would you fill your pants, with a gun to your head?
Now, that's REAL fear.. you could be dead, enougth said!
Some could find your nerves and make you scream for weeks,
They can teach you about pain and how it reaches new peaks.

But the ones like that..  are fearful too,
Of justice, revenge, and the human rights crew.
They should be scared!  I wanna see their faces white,
'Cause they even kidnap kids and slip away into the night!

Now I'll get swept away, as it floods from me,
See, some of these emotions, are as deep as the sea,
Some wanna get a gun, and hunt these sick suckers,
And get them on their knees and say PRAY MOTHERF%%%%%!

See this is the crux..  this is the bottom line,
If they catch you doing that, then it's you that's doing time,
It's never black & white, it's not easy to see..
There are so many fears, it's all part of being free.

Are you scared of the dark, because that's how it began?
Are you scared that it links you to the earliest man?
Who had to hunt to eat, had to kill to stay alive,
And did what they had to, so this race could all survive.

The things to be scared of are the things inside,
You can struggle and fight, but you can never run or hide,
So walk down the street with your head held high,
And face down fear.. because we're ALL gonna die!

But the opposite of fear though..  is to be brave,
Who knows how many lives you could save.
The futures unknown, and we all face change,
It is all just a part of being free-range.

LEARN HOW TO FIGHT YOUR BLUES

Write yourself the silliest song...
when everything seems dark and dull,
and all that can be changed for all; 
write and just sing along!

Learn how to fight your blues
with the quickest remedy:  think of sunshine,
never of rain;  dream of rainbows 
over the distant horizon!
For every sad mood that lingerd for too long, 
there's a world of surprises waiting in your song!

Most people think  that loving themselves
is enough to complete their mission in life,
but I tell you otherwise:  love others
more than you love yourself,
and you'll be rewarded in due time:
look at the lives of those great givers! 

Learn how to fight your blues,
and there's no way you can lose;
if everything were easy, nobody would complain...
going up-hill is too tough for the weak,
gather your strength and be the first to reap
whatever you deserved and wasn't given!

Write yourself the happiest song,
look up and merrily sing along!

My Best Friends

They are the ones that I met
They are the ones that I have found
They are still here and I am Glad
Because I would never want to go down

They are the laughters and smiles
They are the sky and the sun
They are the ocean and wind
They are the only ones

They are my best Friends
They are the people who I hang on to
They are my best Friends
We are not just some bunch of Fools

Susan is feminine but she's the daisies in spring
Her eyes sparkled and she is strong in what she thinks

Mat is a flirt but he is the joker of the group
He never likes girls to treat him some kind of a fool

Susan loves fashion designs and talks like any other girl
Mat loves himself to flirt with the girls around the world

And I dont care for what they are
And I am just glad that these are the people that made me come this far
And I would not make a mistake in pulling ourselves apart
We will keep ourselves in daylight when we beginning to feel the dark

And I love them more than everyone can see
They feel like they are more than just a family

Because they are all i have in me

All I Have in me..

THE MAN I WAS MADE TO BE!

My thoughts comes curiously, 
My lips speaks freely, 
My body's a temple holding guilt & worries, 
My eyes witness truth and my ears clearly hears.  

My hands help others, 
My feet will continue to walk futher, 
My sharp tounge prays daily, 
and my knees bow geniunely. 

My mind's always growing, 
so still now, my job's to keep showing, 
The man I was made to be,
God's radiance ever emitting out of me.

What is love

Is love a feeling trapped deep inside 
that any painful moment can cause you to cry
Is love an infatuation with the opposite sex
feeling you must always be at your very best

Is love a thought, action, or deed
grown in the heart from the planting of a seed
for what is love but a single notion
that drives the heart with many emotions

Is love the warmth beneath a gentle breath
that sends uncontrollable chills down the back of your neck
Is love the desire behind a stare that leaves you in a daze
hypnotize by lust struck within its gaze

Is love the security felt from a strong embrace
or the steady soft caress of a hand upon your face
is love missing someone when they've gone on a long trip
or the heated passion of a slow kiss upon your lips

Is love merely knowing someone will always be there
just knowing your heart and life will always be shared

Value

A smile in a thought of a "forever" like this.
A dream from a star's one wish.
A love of a life from a fairy tale one told
To a child with an imagination worth a whole pot of gold.

Can you really put a value to something like this?
Like that feeling you get from your last first kiss?
Or the dreams that come true from a shooting star's wish?
There's no value worth more than all this.

A song from a night from a heart's first glance.
A sway from a dress from a love's first dance.
A rose from a thorn from a child's freedom.
A ring from a night from a tear from one.

Can you really put a value to a moment like this?
To a second in time so carefree as this?
To a heartbeat caused by pure peace and bliss?
To a child's eye lit by a shooting star and a wish?

Could you tell me what it's worth?
Or could you tell me which came first?
Was it hope for a future unknown,
Or happiness from the love that's shown?
Was it a dream from a fairy tale,
Or optimism after every fail?
Because the child that I've never seen
Is one without a single dream.

So tell me,
Can you really put a value to this?
To a first kiss?
A child's wish?
Pure bliss?
To this?
To this moment looking into your eyes?
To a fairy tale defined
By you and I.

'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 …


Of  Note:  In The Words Of A Lady Rocker,
Pat Benatar:   ‘Love Is A Battlefield’
(but I Say, 'Life Is A Battlefield'

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.

STAY - dedicated to people who go through Separation Anxiety

Stay with me and you'll find happiness
I guess I'm the one to ignore like leftovers getting thrown away
Oh, i thought I was the one friend that  could make your day an illuminated day
Sorry to say, but my heart's sinking in dismay
it has been a busy day for me, but I want you to be willing to hang around me and stay
Our friendship bond between us is wrecked up and weak - 
It's not setting us free from the strange encounters in captivity
I know I need to be self-controlled and merely meek!
Venture into our mind's eye and we'll find liberty... temporarily

Ch.: What can I say today?
All I have to do is be in solitude and pray...
Pray that you'll answer me tonight...don't worry about me - I'm feeling okay
Despite being ignored by others day after day
I'm handling it alright...I just want someone to talk to...I want them to simply listen and stay
Stay...stay...stay...don't stay away
Just stay...stay...I won't lay my problems on you today
For my mind drifts on like a cloud that passes away

I didn't ask for the night to murder the day...my High spirits are fading away and I'm one with the color gray
So stay...stay...stay for a while, won't you, friend, for one more day
I promise I'll behave and stop bugging you, okay? Okay?
Say what you have to say...But I beg you to please..please...stay

Ch.: What can I say today?
All I have to do is be in solitude and pray...
Pray that you'll answer me tonight...don't worry about me - I'm feeling okay
Despite being ignored by others day after day
I'm handling it alright...I just want someone to talk to...I want them to simply listen and stay
Stay...stay...stay...don't stay away
Just stay...stay...I won't lay my problems on you today
For my mind drifts on like a cloud that passes away

Just stay with me one way or another - you're turning the wrong way...me too...don't fret - everything will be OK
As long as you stay by my side today
I'm tired of living this lie in my head...I have many prices to pay
Emotional debt is not easy to pay off...I just need to obey
I need to obey God and pray that you'll stay 
I will soon be positive like the fervor-blossoming day
So, please, please stay

Ch.: What can I say today?
All I have to do is be in solitude and pray...
Pray that you'll answer me tonight...don't worry about me - I'm feeling okay
Despite being ignored by others day after day
I'm handling it alright...I just want someone to talk to...I want them to simply listen and stay
Stay...stay...stay...don't stay away
Just stay...stay...I won't lay my problems on you today
For my mind drifts on like a cloud that passes away

I like you, friend - I must say!
Are you okay? How was your day today?
I will cheer you up till the end...
I don't mean to offend
I don't want our friendship to end

Ch.: What can I say today?
All I have to do is be in solitude and pray...
Pray that you'll answer me tonight...don't worry about me - I'm feeling okay
Despite being ignored by others day after day
I'm handling it alright...I just want someone to talk to...I want them to simply listen and stay
Stay...stay...stay...don't stay away
Just stay...stay...I won't lay my problems on you today
For my mind drifts on like a cloud that passes away
 
Search for God and He can give us pure, true FREEDOM for eternity
All I want you to do...all I need you to do
Is to stay with me - do me a favor a-and-
And relieve me from the love flu
That's been killing me, do you u-understand?
Stray on your own will lead to further distress...

BEYOND IMAGINATION

I can imagine
The Mount melting into a fount
And the fount hardening into a mount

I can imagine
The earth squeezing into a ball
And the heavens rolling into a scroll

But to imagine
You out of my sight
I’ll rather die than imagine

My Dream

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

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

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

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

Fly

Don't you wish you could fly? Don't you wish you could fly? Decisions are capable of control, Then you feel like a mole, Deep in the ground, Far away from sound. Things get you down, You can't fit into the crown, You lay in front of an ice cream shop, Your friends are playing ninja in the handicap spot. You feel like you want to cry, Don't you wish you could fly, Fly, fly away, to a place far from here, I don't know what to do, But I still miss you, You're sweet and pure, You're my only cure. Now I want to fly away. Dreaming of a beautiful land, When you dug your feet into the sand, I get beaten, When your so smitten, Because you're not mine. You feel like you want to cry, Don't you wish you could fly, Fly, fly away, to a place far from here, I don't know what to do, But I still miss you, You're sweet and pure, You're my only cure. Now I want to fly away. Fly, fly, fly. Fly like a butterfly, Away from troubles, That make you cry, When come in doubles. You feel like you want to cry, Don't you wish you could fly, Fly, fly away, to a place far from here, I don't know what to do, But I still miss you, You're sweet and pure, You're my only cure. Now I want to fly away. Flap your wings and, Fly.

It's You

You bring joy to my life
And I'm proud to be your wife
To cherish you
To play with you
So, come and you will see
The happiness you bring to me
You are the one, my kind
It was you I had to find
That smile upon your face
Takes me to that special place
Right where I want to be
With just you and me
You bring joy to my life
And I'm proud to be your wife
To find in you
All the magic inside of you
You are my kind
It was you I had to find
There is no end to our time
Only with you

MUSE-MASTER!

I am the confidant of many, 
a healer of weary souls, 
they come to me with questions, 
and tales of their ample woes. 

I advise and console their broken,
and bleeding hearts, 
for I know how it feels,
to be ripped and utterly torn apart. 

What can one so humble as I;
I often conclude with query short and sweet; 
do for a true master-poet; 
who muses others as he speak?

Get My Shine On

Everyday is so stressful to me,
close friends think I'm selfish
but I try to do what's best for the team.
Lay my vocals on wax the beats melt from the steam
it feels good when I'm exhaling a dream.
All my newly written poems I lace up
and quickly spread on the streets,
it keeps them reading for my next release.
Everynight I.....lay in my room with alot on my
mind if everybody did music
it'll be less dead on the streets.
Allah I pray my dead bredren can see,
I'm destined to be,
the next uncontested emcee
blessed with the speech
fed in the Pete.
No matter what some jealous of me,
y'all make it hard so much pressure to breathe.
Mind your business let me be free,
I have to find Jenah indeed
because you and I know, deep in hell it's no peace.
And if I don't find a princess to carry my seed
I still love my nubians, that's my letter to she.
A nice smile is like a treasure to see,
don't get me wrong I wouldn't mind
sex on the beach, drinking sex on the beach.
Everyday is so stressful to me,
it feels good when I'm exhaling a dream,
I will shine on.

Everything gonna be Alright

Everything gonna be Al right.

Yes it is.
No matter what they say.
Or the pain. It will go away.
Sleep will return.
Keep up the fight.
Everything gonna be al right.

Were in this life together.
Through the bad weather.
Spring will come.
The sun for you. Chum.
You are young.
Every thing is gonna be al right.

No matter what the Doctor said.
You are alive, not dead.
Lift up your head.
Nothing will keep you in bed.
Everything is gonna be al right.

I promise you.
You will  recover.
Enjoy life forever.
I am sure of this, Gods honor.
I will bear it for you.
Every thing is gonna be al right.

I know how it is.
I also suffer so.
We can bear it.
But come tomorrow.
Gone the sorrow.
Sickness no. Health.
All the goodness of life.
And happiness.
Everything gonna be al right.

Inspiration

Inspiring is the lion’s roar Inspiring is the sea. They strengthen all the courage That lives inside of me. Inspiring is the wind As it tosses about the trees, And inspiring is the humming Of the little bumblebees. Inspiring is the eagle As it soars above the sun, And inspiring is the man Who will never use his gun. Inspiring is the dolphin As it dances in the waves, And inspiring is the swan With the graceful way it bathes. Inspiring are the people Who embrace the warmth of love, And inspiring is the poet Who rhymes for those above. Inspiring are those who shun The violent plague of war And inspiring is the soldier And those he does fight for. Inspiring is the courage That lives inside of me, And inspiring is the unity That comes from the word “we”.

holy wow

for theres a new plan

high above drifted lands

as I catch a cloud

to stay afloat
for I'll not mope
and just have to cope
from this heavenly boat

as I catch a cloud

The Search

I went to the valley lookin' for a dime
a nickel's all I found baby ain't it a crime
I went to the valley hopin' I'd find you
I hoped you'd find me too

I went to the river lookin' for a name
a mirror's all I found baby this ain't a game
one time a devil two times a sin
I hope you'll let me in

Woke from a dream I didn't have no place
cool wind vanished without a trace
life went and played me for a fool
that's why I need you

I went to the fact'ry lookin' for some yarn
'fore I knew it I was ripped and torn
tied up in tragedy but don't feel no pain
I got your blood in my veins

I went to to the valley lookin' for a dime
a nickel's all I found baby ain't it a crime
I went to the valley without a clue
I'm so happy I found you

Midnight Confessions part 4 - a collaboration with Honcho Mars

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

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

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

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

Sweet Mary Jane

Just want a little break from you
Getting too tired to know what's true
Can't decide what I should do
About you girl.
Time and again I taste my tears
Don't know where I'll lose my fears
Friends say it'll take some time
How the hell did I get like this
So tired off clinching my fists
Tell me baby
Where did I go wrong
While I sing you this song

This one for the ache in my head
another thing to help me bed
Seems i cant forget about you girl
It sinks so deep to my soul
Bottled up so hard to control
Its the only thing to take away my pain
Sweet Mary Jane

Day one im wanting you more
Getting closer down to the floor
It seems my sorrows can't keep away from me
Don't know how much I can do
Cause all this pain your putting me through
I don't really know which side to blame
Cause everything's all the same

This one for the ache in my head
another thing to help me bed
Seems i cant forget about you girl
It sinks so deep to my soul
Bottled up so hard to control
Its the only thing to take away my pain
Sweet Mary Jane

Moon light shimmers in a daze
Feeling comfortable in this haze
Seems all my sorrow escaped away from me
Picking my-self off the floor
Looking better than i did before
And lord knows she blame

Aint got that ache in my head
Found the thing to help me to bed
She treats me so much better than you girl
She loves me so deep to my soul
So intense so hard to control
She's the only thing to take away my pain
Sweet Mary Jane

Make Yourself at Home in my Heart

The other day I was talking with you 

You're so easy to talk to

we discuss our points of view

and all the stuff that we've been through


I'm in love with love they say

sure I'm searching everyday 

I hope you can come out and play

cause there's something that I hope you can do


You can make yourself at home in my heart

there's an empty place your welcome to fill

it doesn't matter that we're so far apart

You don't have to, but I hope you will

make yourself at home

in my heart


Lady how the time does fly

I know you're crazy and so am I

some day we might give us a try

but for now, let's watch the world go by

I bet if I could be with you

a lot of things would feel brand new

I bet there would be laughter too

and we would never want to die 


If you could make yourself at home in my heart

There's an empty place I want you to fill

it don't matter if we're light years apart

You don't have to but I hope you will

make yourself at home

in my heart


I see no need now to be coy

I know I'm acting like a little boy

You don't know how much I enjoy

every minute that goes by


When you share your words with mine

feels like things will work out fine

I hope that I'm not out of line

If I come right out and say


You can make yourself at home in my heart

there's an empty place you're welcome to fill

doesn't matter that we're so far apart

You don't have to, but I hope you will

Just make yourself at home

in my heart

You'll never be alone

in my heart

Shadows

Walking down the block
street lights they blind me,
trying to find a spot
where memories can't find me.
High off this weed
hearing sounds of crying,
I turn around, look
and see my past behind me.
I must get rid of old habits
hurting my present,
never felt touched
by an angel I stay stressing.
At times I wonder is me Allah's testing only,
cause he can punish the phonies and just console me
leave me lonely if you have to
my future's in trouble,
me and the Reaper need to talk
we have to huddle.
Let me breathe to concieve a seed,
truley indeed if I bleed
you're a b---h indeed believe.
I'm still young don't want a final destination
steady pacing in my living room
sipping liquid meditating.
Allah if I die before it's my time,
please let me ressurect as a rhyme I can't die.

Life is hard enough
you all make it seem death is
easy I,
take nothing for granted
I'm weezy I keep on
seeing my,
bad dreams repeating
at nightfall when I'm
sleeping my,
inner demons know as my
enemies keep on
weeping why.
Shaytan stands on my shoulder with
eagle eye,
talking in my earlob
I hear no evil on the other side.
So when I'm speaking the truth
peeping my moves
keeping me cool
when I speak speech
reaching to you.
Bad news stays close to me
seeking for clues,
I must be focused when I
ease in the booth.
Won't think about my, parent's divorce
won't think think about the,
love of my life
leaving me for New York.
I have to get, off my mind those times
and look ahead,
that's why I sit, write rhymes,
take it to the head.
Allah if I die before it's my time,
please let me ressurect as a rhyme I can't die.

Better Days

Baby girl I know it seems so sad 
God always change his plan don't get dreary
cause in this game we gotta improvise
so my angel lady dry up them eyes
and it's so easy to let shed um tears
just by remminecsing on the lesser years
weed smoke is takin on some crazy shapes
got pistols peircin shields sinin' and hate
sadly predicting falls comin' to late
anxious puff by puff to live out or fate
now mustaches growin on um babies
men young faced and our life is gone crazy
who run da streets if the glock do it's job
evil exist's and the outcome is mobs
to be a nation of adolescents
cause all our men is some convelescents
but I can't stress in the evil ways
I keep on prayin for some better days

Drifting Away

The world was so small now
I can't see you here with me
The clouds are getting darker
Surrounds my reality

We were used to be so closed
But now we are far apart
But I know I still care
I will still have you in my heart

Now we are drifting apart
And I cry
And I can't sleep
I can't breath
When you are still
Under my skin
I don't want to believe
That this is real
My heart can't be fix
When we are drifting away

Every moments I think of you
I think of the times we had
Everytime I wish to see you
I would wan to see your smile
Again

You and Me

All day, all day long
I've been trying
To be strong
Can't you see
You and me
Are meant to be,
Meant to be.

All night, all night long
I've been crying
All alone ,all alone
Can't you see
You and me
Are meant to be,
Meant to be.

All life, all life long
I've been searching,
For far to long 
Can't you see
You and me 
Are meant to be 
Meant to be...

Feel Me

I do it for the boys, the girls, men, the women,
plus Allah's unborn children look how I'm living
it's similar to, your situation no money making,
just chips and egg crates in front the Playstation.
Cable's late again my real friends know my struggle,
a rough 9 to 5 plus supplying studio time is my hussle.
It's just my father, Jibri, and I shacked in a shack
shackled to a broken home with no
welcome mat get back.
Everysince my mother left the building,
the feeling ain't the same pain is building
rain is killing the window pain.
Winters are harsh man, but I can take it though
as long as I'm wrapped up in these blankets
I'm a make it man.

I do it for the emcees, the djs, the b-boys, the b-girls,
hip hop is a growing culture plus it's a free world.
Free to manifest expressions,
free to rep your section focused over nice composures
flowing until the night is over.
Don't be like me just be like the music you like
use right rhyme and reason choose nice lines and preach them.
Watch the ones leeching watch who you be with frequent
cause you can end up with your dreams slowly sinking.
Only you can make it in this, it's a business,
forget the fame listen use your senses don't be senseless.
Be patient and grind hard if waiting to shine start
slanging tapes on my block & your block it don't stop.
Hit up every spot around,
it's a milion of us trying to get a milion bucks and
chill in a vila feeling the cool breeze.
I'm am who me.
the same easy dude speaking jeweles
do you I'm a do me.

I started off young with a pen and a pad lyrics I had
before that I scribbled on scraps forget about class.
Entered school thinking of rap,
grades sinking in math
twas either skip, go home, or sit in the back.
During lunch I read what I wrote
they said it was dope, within battles
no one put Bomb Threat on the ropes.
Six years later I.....left to go solo felt I was hopeless
in a group that wasn't hungry only one supplying money me.
Then the south was united, two years later divided
but Mama Glo, had the best ideas,
but I, down no man no way no how
cause if you make it in this game from the heart I'm proud.
FLA I will make this official rake up a pencil
for Jenah's sake I'm a make it
and mention you on an instrumental.
That's a promise I'm honest, show me love back
hold me down
southside is us you gotta love that.

Harmony

Oh beloved dear one , sing to me your song
its caress to rest     my ears to fall thereon
the tenor of its soothing     balm unto my heart
from its intonation           wish never I to part
 
Break the mold beloved           to the high exalt
sing about true justice        compared to mans default
take true aim with words              designations mark
lift them from their misery      with the divine spark
 
Your skill of composition           compliments of sound
where breathes a truth       in stories  made renown 
highlight their intentions      for the cause you wish effect
pointed the veracity     that leads to circumspect
 
Take elements of history         a tale told in note
outline in detail         its morality in wrote
expressed is your ability          the mind to mesmerize
where realities of men's      behavior brought to size
 
Accompany with melody     instruments design
harmonize those tones            and tales ultimately fine
your songs can lead          one to the right conclusions
break the chords       wrapped with mankind's illusions
 
Oh beloved Bard      your ballad sets me a sail
a chronicle of joy         or those that we bewail
from you shall I never           turn away my ear
its narration and aria           brings recitals near

Never Real

i am dreaming in the daylight..
the wind keeps passing by..
i am thinking about you all night.. 
are you alright.. are you alright..
Every sight of love in every place..
its so great.. its so great..
i kept out of sight but i still have faith
no matter wad it takes..

but its never real..
i never got to feel..
its never real..
i never got to feel..

i lay down on my bed, wondering
when will you ever see me..
i close my eyes and dream ..
will you really ever see me..
when i need you at times of need..
will u know, will u know?
and when your time starts to die..
i will know.. i will know

Darkness is my Friend

The world is sinking
The storm is rising
And my heart is falling...

The clouds are coming
the stars are fading...
And my heart is bleeding...

There is no one here
There is only me
I tried to make a sound
But only I can hear it

All the lights went out
The darkness took me
The evil that flies within
All the shadows surround
The ghost of the reality
And there is no one but me

The truth is revealing
The answer is escaping
And my words is flying.. away

The water stops flowing
The trees stops growing
And everything is falling.. today

I am not fallen
I can climb back up again
I am not broken
Because this is more than just a pain

All the lights went out
The darkness is my friend
The dark is with me till the end
All the shadows surround
I can't feel myself here
And the darkness is no longer my fear

I try to go away from this place
But this feeling is haunting me when I am so alone
I can't move on when I am broken to pieces
So I am trying to live with this never ending sorrow

The darkness is my friend
The shadows are calling me
I am Living with this again 
until
The Light became my Enemy

For Robert Zimmerman

For Bob Dylan

sheltered from the howling winds of vows and scattered souls and sweltering hate

she is a refuge from the blistering sands of dread and loss and torn and twisted fate

when the emptiness inside becomes an abyss so dark and wild and cold

my words get lost in the jangling alleys where dreams are bought and sold

I met her in those alleys among the withering roses on a bed of thorns

and she filled me up with poems banishing the scowling moments and their baleful scorns

now I lie awake and wish that I could sleep and drift away into the maze of her dream

but slumber has fled and slipped the noose around my words as they thrash around and scream

words that swirl around and around like that scarlet scarf wrapped around her face

she's a mystery still as she will always be while I sift through this empty desolate space

the storm it broke and ceased and shuffled my words as they drifted forlornly into the chasm of the dead

leaving me here still and mute and frantic as I try to pick up the pieces of all the words that have been said

far too many far too often far too conceited and far too proud

for I failed to hear the stillness of beauty as I rambled along barking my words out aloud

she hushes me now as she hushed me then in the cobwebbed tunnels of the past

while I weep more words in blood and ink onto dried parchment meant never to last

so tell her that her whiskey has been greedily gulped down and now that I am soberly drunk

I see her songs and hear her breath reaching down into my mouldy abode of hapless funk

fare-thee-well for now as I slide into the scribbled hubris of another battered rhyme

dazed by the glaring embers as they scorch the moments of quickly fading time

and if tomorrow finds me here still shell-shocked and drained in body and in mind

tell her that her wine has slipped through the loose knots that bind

tying me to this place of sanity and insanity all rolled into one

while all is numb and scarred from the deed that has been done

and as I flee recklessly chasing away myself from me once more
she'll know the words for its a song that's been sung far too many times before

(for bob dylan)

O my Bangladesh of Gold - National Anthem of Bangladesh - Original By Rabindranath Tagore

O my mom!
O my Bangladesh!
O my Bangladesh of Gold!
I love you mom I love you.

O my mom! Your sky and your air
Attract me like a flute-player!
O my mom!
O my Bangladesh!
O my Bangladesh of Gold!
I love you mom I love you.

O my mom!
In spring in mango gardens
I have smelt holy fragrance!
O my mom!
O my Bangladesh!
O my Bangladesh of Gold!
I love you mom I love you.

O my mom!
What have I seen in autumn?
Fields full of crops so handsome!
O my mom!
O my Bangladesh!
O my Bangladesh of Gold!
I love you mom I love you.

O the beauty and the shadow
Where my affection and love grow
Under the banyan trees and
On the shores of rivers that flow!

O my mom!
Your words are sweetest to me!
If you look pale and gloomy:
I shed tears in sympathy.
O my mom!
O my Bangladesh!
O my Bangladesh of Gold!
I love you mom I love you.

Cleansed by Water

A dark embrace, quiet and cold
Born to sink into this mould
The earth a path of perfect distress
Of wolves and sheep, I was made to confess

So empty then, in playful repent
Such guilt in awe of all that I spent
All protest thrown into the sea
My spirit drowned by the monster in me

Then reborn, as silent as sin
A broken storm, a chaotic thing
Creating pain; scorching this world
The ocean’s cries going unheard

Casting stones at evil’s request
Into the pain my mirror detests
Her empty face; the lessons I fought
How many lost; how many sought?

Broken then, seeking despair
Designed to die; created to share
To fade alone, I sought barren lands
The winter ice then taking my hand

A cracking shell, the ocean beneath
Cleansed by rain encompassing me
A greater depth I’d never known
Awash with pain, but no longer alone

The soul I’d lost, holding me still
Empty before, but now I am filled
Reborn in light; reclaimed by the sea
The ice is gone, and now I am free

Midnight Confessions - a collaboration with Honcho Mars

Once upon a time, everything was black and white
Oh darling angel - I didn't know we were gonna take flight

V.1:
Shadowed silence vibrates melancholy
As the darkening clouds spiral overhead
Open spaces, breathing air of mystery
bloody ink of terror break in...doused in dread
I must confess
Under tons of stress
Hiding this love
Like a thief in the night
Robbing the house of love
My plunder is your heart
To keep in a jar
My jar of hearts
I cried a river
In my heart, in my heart
Deliver…oh deliver
Me from temptation that’s been deceiving me from the start

Ch.:
I’m nothing to you…it’s like solving a mystery without a clue!
Living this lie…refusing my cries
Frozen inside and feeling kind of numb
I feel dumb…well, it’s a bummer…
Wiping away the pain 
Wiping away the tears
I ran because of fear
But I must spill the secrets
(I am here
Here I wait)x3
Here I stand…
I hope you understand…
I hope you can see…
I hope for you to see
To see what happens
When love is given
A second chance to bloom
In my heart
I slept for way too many hours
It empowers me – the thought of reaching out to you
Numb without you motivating me…
So, there’s no point of taking cover

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.

Drifting

Set aside on a whimsical ride,
to drift the day away ,
pole in the water;  
but it doesn't matter, 
if a fish catches my hook along the way.
I'll just enjoy the travel, 
that will make me unravel,
months of cooped up dismay.
To recapture me,
to punctuate my being,
in a world that keeps me at bay.
I escape into the scenery,
of the foliage and greenery,
cottonwoods, yucca and sage.
Drifting along, 
to a whispering song,
of a youth;  all but,  passed away.
Glistening leaves, 
above on the trees,
as my squinty eyes capture the way.
I dream of when,
I'll be here again,
and this time maybe I'll stay.

Cry No More

Listen up it's not hard to explain,
the struggle's tough
plenty hard time scarred in our veins.
I hussle for a buck
and break my back to make ends meat,
when times is rough
thugs take they guns and wake up the streets,
but people had enough of,
they own people crying,
black leaders dying
kids screaming out to no father big brother
hussles harder.
I'm not preaching or teaching I'm just
speaking to reach to you folks
pleased by the smoke seeking for hope
I, know we equal in soul needing the doe'
the same way this world is needing a poem.
Right now it's just me, my pad, my pen
working so I don't CRY NO MORE.
It's a beautiful pain because it only
makes me strive to be great
feeling the rain I'm not ashame
to kneel and cry when I pray.
If I had a chance to look the world right in they face,
I'd tell them put your faith in all your dreams and
try everyday.

So Deep

i'm going down, down so deep below.. 
dont know whats going on with me.
im going down, down into the darkness.. 
cant believe this is happening..

i could say that i had done all i could..
No more freaking reputations for just being a lame old fool
i dont know what to do..

i dont know what to do..

i was frozen, cold like cemented-molten stone ..
i dont know what my tears could do even if i mourn..
i've fallen into the darkest, deepest place i've never thought i ended up in..
where should i begin .. again

lingual

the eloquence of -  
the song of the syllable
the tone, like solemn Gregorian chant, 
tympanically resonant to hear
beautiful as deep-red Tiffany glass
stoned echo of Morpheus 
a Morpheme of the god of dreams
the language is a beautiful thing
to hear - enunciated, emancipated,
softly muscular moves,
especially whispered into ear

Two Peas in a Pod - Shadow and Peace in Mind

Don’t let the words
slip out of your
mouth and let there
be light! Envy
becomes serpentine
in my lost soul,
going out of control
– it’s tearing my
heart apart and it’s
killing me with its
death stare
Don’t say what you
wanna say…Don’t run
if you’re not
required to run…hope
through the ring of
fire and fetch me
the fiery
rose…snatch hope’s
hand before we slip
and fall into
oblivion 
Bravery never
existed in this
youthful heart of
mine…I head towards
the south…I keep
looking towards that
direction…At least
it’s more lively
there! Loving you is
easy and hard…it’s
an easy thing to
become infatuated
with you – talk it
out with me…I know
what you’re gonna
talk about – don’t
bring me down…though
there’s some good
news to bring
To be honest, I just
wanna see you be
fine today…flames of
passion scorch
aflame inside of my
reveries and my
countless
fantasies…frowning
at the world’s woe
and confusion
There’s always room
for improvement one
way or another –
talking to myself as
if I’m crazy…I’m
quitting this bad
habit today – why do
you bring me down
with you? Feeling
like I don’t belong
– nothing’s wrong
with me – you say
“Hang in there” –
I’m hanging by the
last string  
Don’t let the words
slip out of your
mouth and let there
be light! Envy
becomes serpentine
in my lost soul,
going out of control
– it’s tearing my
heart apart and it’s
making me completely
unaware (of His
light!)

*chorus* 
(I can see your
shadow…especially
when you walk away…I
can see your light,
shining on me day
after day…I see the
light in goodbye…I
can see the seething
storm passing away…I
can see the gray of
today fading
away…and I pray it
remains that way for
eternity –
someday…someday…that
time will come
eventually…that time
will dawn upon us,
dousing us with
positive,
sun-shining day 
I’m kindah (x2 out
of my mind) – I’m
trying to find peace
in mind
Peace in mind
Peace of mind
But, I’m frankly
dead and
blind…believe in me
& reflect on me;
we’re two peas in a
pod and we both have
the possibility to
share our liberty –
we must share to get
a piece of
prosperity and
ecstasy all in one
package…the darkness
blankets me with
sorrow’s shadowy,
sinister day…survive
the breakage of
tomorrow’s yesterday
I’m kindah (x2
losing my silly
mind) – frantically
and desperately, I’m
trying to find
You, but you walk
away
You, but you left me
on my own
You, but you
murdered the day
You, you and I
together –
mind-blown 
I can only see you,
walking around…
Don’t frown…don’t be
down…sit with me on
the ground
You and I suffer so,
so much…trapped in
fairytale, majestic,
and thrilling
illusions
Can you tell us
apart? We’re two
peas in a pod…
You whirl around my
head crazily…
You’re my
ecstasy…you’re my
lover by my side
possibly
Speechless……..)

Well, here it is, once again, but,
  the hour's gotten kinda late;
And the night's been shattered like some
  cheap and off-white dinner plate.
Silence follows, leaves me alone to
  smile as tears dissipate;
Those sharp shards of porcelain 
  no longer seem my fate.
      Watch the waitress calmly waiting 
        in her tavern-issued kilt;
      A broom and a pan's all she needs
        to sweep up survivor's guilt.

Grime's collecting silver saviour
  machines, won't take my coins.
Grateful Beast's 'bout to get a new
  indentation in his loins.
Panic spreads behind the puppet-show
  as lines are being cut.
The Orphan's got her own by now,
  sure, Midnight's a slut.
      The hothouse's ignored, opaque
        plastic sheets in shreds, flowers wilt;
      That strong, ammonia-laced stench 
        of decay's survivor's guilt.

Grown tired of countries and corporations
  'round the entire world,
Raising their easily tattered banners
  and flags to unfurl;
The whole while, the din of anthems and
  slogans are aimed, then hurled,
Amazingly straight into my mad,
  multi-media whirl.
      Times like these, the barrage will buckle 
        your knees, cause the floor to tilt;
      Hollerin' Christ, like it's Howlin' Wolf,
        left gasping survivor's guilt.

Aged, grinning Prince, crouched Enemy, 
  form one cycling satelite;
Time's at hand, Light's shining upon us all,
  when one's Right is Might.
Scholarly endeavours bind rumors: attempts
  at Scriptures' new dress;
Driven by blind need, yellow orb forestalls
  the errant mistress.
      Everything's best forgotten, forsaken,
        over which it's built;
      The End's by no means the Means, if
        they're subtracting survivor's guilt.

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.

I Imagine Heaven

I imagine what heaven will be like.
I imagine skies so blue,
Glistening like diamonds set in the sky.
The sun shining so brightly,
Offering its warmth to me.
I imagine lush green meadows,
Whispering to me:
“Come, lay down, and rest awhile”
The trees, so large and so full of color,
Some offering luscious fruits,
I can see the flowers with all their hues,
Like precious jewels scattered everywhere.
Bursting with colors like an artistic canvas.
And their fragrance, overwhelms my senses,
Fills the air with their heavenly aroma.
Oh, I cannot leave out those beautiful animals.
They are so gentle, so marvelous.
I can lay with them and feed them.
I call to them and they come to play.
I imagine the waters,
Clear as crystals, fresh and sweet.
I imagine the streets will be of gold,
For my Father only gives the best.
What about the people?
I imagine Adam and Eve,
Noah and Jonah, and so many more,
Along with loved ones and dear ones,
At my home designed by my Father,
Sharing food, fun, love and laughter.
Most of all;
I imagine my Father and I,
Walking together in the garden.
His gentle face looks at me,
He holds my hand,
He gently speaks to me.
We sing songs together and laugh together.
My family comes to join us.
Wow, how very blessed I am.
Oh, how I imagine what heaven will be like.
He’s at the gate,
His angels surround Him,
His arms open wide,
He tells me,
Welcome home my Child.

Warrior Faces

I see a world that is consumed by greed
everyones a taker in this cursed breed
no room for love and no one sees my words to heed
But if we live like this forever more
for whom shall God open heavens door
even when we think that our lives our done
and nobodies above  that the world ain't fun
When we get confused by this unholy place
God told me to remember my Warrior face
And when I do I walk through dark streets hella fearless
but still know that none of my words are ever careless
Cause I walk through a world that used to beat me down
I walk through a world where I was forced to frown.
But emotion's burnin' in me I'll control the flame
Cause that's what ya gotta do to succeed in this game
and even when I'm furstrated and my heart starts to race
I remember God's advice and show that Warrior Face

Heartless Fire

In my fervent heart,
You knew I treasured you
But you didn’t return those tender feelings
Just see the fumes arise from the consuming fire
Because my wicked desires wasted away into embers
I love you…I love you…These feelings are ever so new!
I LOVE YOU…I love you…These feelings are always true!
You knew I honestly adored you…oh yeah; I always did from the start
But you don’t consider those mild feelings—you wrecked those bits by bits
Ah! Now I’m crammed into the ascending fire, splintering me with the strokes of death
Because of my virtuous desires, I’m wasting away into the pit of corruption
I thought you were encompassed with my passionate kisses
But you wanted to chase after your callous blisses, now I’m faced with crises
I detest the thought of adoring you…but I have to admit—I love you!
I love you…I love you with all of my heart! Do you love me too?
I know the desires that I have constructed for you never occurred in your heart
I know in the bottom of my heart that you were only enticed by your sick pleasures
You’re dumping me into the raging fire and you’re a sneaky little liar
Because I ain’t lying like you do deceitfully to me—I’m in love and I can’t draw back my desire
You brought magnificence in my eyes, comforting angel
But I’m subsiding into the cavernous fire
Because I surrender to my legit desire
How could I free from the embrace that yanks on to me?
You brighten up my dreams and set me free from reality’s calamity
I love you…I love you…These feeling relieve me from the blue!
I LOVE YOU…I love you…I adore your every existence—do you get the clue?
You knew I kept this feeling inside for so long
Nevertheless, I feel that I belong
In your heart…In His heart…
In my heart…we’ll never depart!
You are my true endeavor
And I wanna win your heart forever!
You’ll always be loved because you’re above beautiful
But, you don’t believe this love will survive in this stranded palace
But I’ll attempt to win you with all of my might and I’ll defeat the malice
Our boundless love is like two fireflies floating in the midnight sky
But you disturbed our greetings and you didn’t even accept the feelings I felt for you
Why did you blow away our interweaved feelings of passion
And blew them away into the heartless fire?
My precious love, why did you diminish my eternal desire?
You knew I worshiped you
In my sensitive heart

I Am What I Am Now

mr ralph said i was plump, fat, quiet and annoying
i was just a shy old boy when i was only thirteen
he said he cudnt have been more proud of me
because i've escaped frm childhood dreams to reality

what have the past many years taught me..
i guess i found what i want, i dream to be..
i found my songwriting is a great ability..
i have been in downfall manie times. that's juz the way it is.

i am what i am now.
and i have no regrets..
i made this far sumhow
to come back up again.. i am what i am.

life was a rollercoaster but it had been a great journey
the only thing that i wish i could feel..
i have been mischievious, so excited and daring..
i can't wait for my b'day and i'll turn sixteen!!

Find the Strength to Say Goodbye - Losing My Train of Thought

Lost in a sugar-coated lullaby
Lost in a bloody reverie…
Losing control…I lost my train of thought
Watch out – I will hunt you down like game…I’ll watch you rot
But, I will remain downright distraught
I yawn non-stop
As I awaken from my solitary cave… 
You’re sleeping beneath the surface – you are unique and brave
You are beautiful and strong
You are sharp and headstrong
I want you to know that I love you so…
I want you to reap what you sow…
Reap what you sow, you know?

Chorus: You are my saving grace You traced tranquility on my lips Behind closed doors, there are secrets to unfold Find your way out of your own maze You can’t save me this time Find the energy to run the extra mile Find the strength to say goodbye sooner or later Later for now…let me sway away…let me flutter away Think on me…think of me… Believe in me…reflect on me…
You’re sleeping beneath the surface I owe you an apology? You say ‘sorry’ first – say it to my face I must be dreaming – pinch me please… Put my worrisome, saddened soul and anxious heart at ease But, no one can mend these scars from deep within… I’m falling victim to this one hideous sin…. But, you make me feel great day in and day out (I feel no regret…I don’t feel all that upset) Please don’t stop the rhythm of our hearts, beating as one…where have you been? We belong with each other…we were meant for each other no doubt (my mind’s not piling up with excessive debt) Where are you going? Are you drowning in your pain? Do you wish to drive it all away? Do you just wish you could make it disappear out of nowhere? I long for the Lord’s accord – someday, that day will come and repair our heartbroken hearts that once consumed dismay and wept with frustration and disarray

Thank You God

Thank you God for being in my heart. Without you I don't know where I would be. I 
know you can see!
My faith in you means so much to me. My heart you have touched. Your love makes 
me strong. I want to get to where you want me to be. Where I belong. You have A 
plan for me I can see! I know as long as I try you will be right by my side.
Without your love in my heart. I would have fallen a part. All my hope would have 
died. You knew just what to do. You gave me strength. To help me cope. Through all 
the tears I cried you stayed by my side and gave me hope.
I am looking forward to the day. When the time comes and I get to see you face to 
face and thank you. In that beautiful place.

Picture Of You

I sat on my bed
Feeling someone i'm missing
And I feel like I miss you

I took my guitar
Took my book and start singing
I'm writing a song about you

I try to remember those days
The days I was with you
I try to recall your sweet face
But I couldn't get a Picture of You

I wonder why did you left me
I want to know the reason
I am sinking underneath
Is my message being delivered

I always want to forget you
But I figured is the wrong to do
Where is the answer I am seeking
What is the real truth

I can remember 
The way you touched me
You used to like me

I can remember 
Many times I was there
I was the one who set you free

Free from the problems
That was haunting you

Free from all the people
That was killing you

And I could remember 
That I was always true

And I could remember
How I put myself through

Just to be with you..

I lied on my bed
And I start reminiscing
But there was no picture of you

Let Me See Through Your Eyeballs...

I already saw many things
Through my own precious eyes
Vision is really a great blessing
Thank God for that privilege

I saw many things and heard a lot
I didn't grasp them all completely
But I tried to defend them always
Because they were my own views and judgements

I tried to build up my life
Based on my self-made philosophy
I never listened to what others saw
I thought it meant for them and not for me

Now I realize I was mistaken
I am glad I learned it at least now 
I don't worry it is too late
I believe I can make it very well

I always feel young at heart
It is one of the positives I have
It helps me to rise again from destructions
And extend my wings to soar high up in the sky

Today is the day and now is the hour
Open your eyes ,see around
Tell me what do you see, and what do you think
I will definitely listen to you with respect

Crush and Crushed

In the beginining,
There was a girl.
She was on a rollar coaster.
She saw her crush.
He ignored her.
He thought she was annoying.
He thought she was petiful.
Little did he know,
She would die that day.
Here's her story.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Little, little girl,
No cares in the world.
Bruises on her face,
Crazy on her trace.

Little, little girl,
Little, little crush.
Little, little love,
Little, little to much.

Only on a rollar coaster,
Would she believe,
She was air.
Carelessness filled her head,
Little, little so much dread.
The boy she liked,
Walking around with so much might,
Little, little did he know that she would die.

Little, big circle coming up,
She was on bottom the cart on top.
Watching the cart fallin',
He didn't know she was calling,
His name.

Heaven reached to her,
But she kept herself on earth,
Until she could see him again.

Only on a rollar coaster,
Would she believe,
She was air.
Carelessness filled her head,
Little, little so much dread.
The boy she liked,
Walking around with so much might,
Little, little did he know that she would die.

Tell him, tell him how you feel,
Little did you know it would feel so real.
Now that she was dead he started thinkin',
Was she crazy or was she worth loving?

Only on a rollar coaster,
Would she believe,
She was air.
Carelessness filled her head,
Little, little so much dread.
The boy she liked,
Walking around with so much might,
Little, little did he know that she would die.

Now she's going to heaven,
So many things she hasn't done.
She sees the door and,
Remembers her amore.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------

Later that night,
After he saw her die,
He commited suicide.
His parents found a note from him.
"I saw her die,
 I love her,
 I am going to be with her.
 I'm sorry"
He didn't go to heaven,
Neither did she,
They are both stuck in limbo,
At least they have each other.

Voice

I had a vision in the dark
Burned so hard it left it's mark
"Follow me into hell and back,
if you don't, your life will never come back."
Said a voice

I closed my eyes and what I saw
Left me confused, left me in awe
Saw the darkness and I saw the fire
Then I was gripped and brought higher
By the voice

When we made it back I thought
How I had been brought
Back from hell, back from the brink
Made me confused, made me think
About the voice

We went to hell and back again
It did not matter when
He had showed me struggle and strife
Showed me more terrible things existed than my life
The voice taught

My vision was ending, I spoke fast
But my chance to ask had past
I left my vision and fell back to sleep
My life would stay, I would always keep
The voice near

Urges

I try to erase
The memory of your face.
Can't really decide,
But I know I have to try.
The dimples in your cheeks...
Sometimes my knees get weak.
Should not even feel this way.
Maybe you shouldn't stay.
Temptation is creeping in.
What I'm thinking is a sin.
Friends is all we could ever be.
Even if you feel the same for me.

THINE TRUE SELF

THE BEAUTY YOU SEE IN MY EYES IS,
SADNESS FROM ALL THE PAIN I'VE SUFFERED IN MY LIFE.
MY RAGE IS MY SCARS, FROM ALL THE DAMAGED HEART ACHES,
I'VE EVER FELT.
WHILE YOU SEE ME SMILING OR LAUGHING ON THE OUTSIDE,
MY TEARS ARE CRYING OUT SILENTLY.
ALL ALONE, AND UNLOVED,
AND BARON OF A FAMILY;
AN ORPHANED AND ABANDONED AS A CHILD,
NOW A GROWN WOMEN.
I TRIED TO TURN MY BACK ON MYSELF AS WELL,
ONLY TO BE BROUGHT DOWN TO MY KNEES SCREAMING,
WITH ALL MY OVERWHELMING EMOTIONS RUNNING WILDLY,
INSIDE OF ME.
WISHING OTHERS WOULD UNDERSTAND HOW GRATEFUL THEY
SHOULD BE TO HAVE FAMILIES THAT REALLY LOVE AND CARE FOR THEM;
INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING AND GROANING.
THINKING TO MYSELF,
IF ONLY MY FAMILY SHOWED ME THAT
THEY LOVED ME THAT AS MUCH AS
I LOVE THEM.
INSTEAD REALITY SETS IN AND REMINDS ME ON
HOW CRUEL THIS WORLD HAS BEEN TO ME.
I FINALLY DECIDED TO START ANEW,
AND THIS NEW BEGINNING HAD ITS UPS AND DOWNS;
AND LIFE LESSONS THAT NEEDED TO BE LEARNED.
ACKNOWLEDGE AND APPLIED.
LEAVING ME WITH THE DREAM AND HOPE,
THAT ONE DAY SOON I WOULD FIND MY KINDRED SPIRIT,
OR HE WOULD FIND ME TO LOVE ME IN THE LOVING WAY,
THAT WE BOTH NEED AND DESERVE.

felt in this world

Felt as if I were a stranger amongst family.
A mere shadow puppet on the wall.
The whispers that enraged me deeply.
From all the distasteful, shameful,
ungrateful words that had been spoken.
Utter silence drifting away,
the darkness starts to reign.
Sincerity's all so superficial beauty shines brightly,
blinding us from the true light burning within.
Rebelliously our selfish motives,
and lustful attitudes,
ruthlessly are felt thru out the land.
Emotionless thoughts,a lack of wisdom,
Aimlessly wandering about,
consuming everything in it's path.
Leaving "heart aches" as distraactions,
felt dining the war within the chains of bondage.
Keeping us slaves of death.
Our "seeds of faith" never failing,
surrendering to our human nature.
Repenting with our bankrupted souls.
His grace,given with forgiveness
and love.

Tragedy in ReVeRsE

You make me feel so complete You brought me up to my feet You’re the good company that I’d like to greet I shouldn’t ever doubt you – you’re such a treat
I tried so hard not to cry… I ask myself why…why do I lie To myself…I’m living my fantasy On my own…I’m full of glee, but I feel slight melancholy I feel this bittersweet sorrow brew inside of me Looking forward to tomorrow’s yesterday…I’d rather live in the present than dwell in the past…masked with happy reminiscences & grief-stricken reverie You quench me with serpentine poetry You gave in to gravity I tried so hard to not let you down I ask myself, why do I wear this frown? It should be upside down instead I’m trying to shoo away the ghosts of the past, Rehearsing dread In my head In my head In my head
In my head, there’s voices in my head, Telling me that I’m not good enough in anyone’s eyes In my head, I tell them off in my head, Saying that their callous fiends and quit rehearsing lies Quit rehearsing lies in my head…in my head… I hear your echoing empathy on cloud seven Fly down to me, you shady, heartrending raven You make me experience cloud seven You brought me to your heaven
I tried so hard to not let you down I ask myself, why do I wear this frown? It should be upside down instead I’m trying to shoo away the ghosts of the past, Rehearsing dread In my head In my head In my head In my mind’s eye…in my mind’s eye, (I try to fly with my might...afraid to fly too high) I fly like an eagle with confidence – oh so wondrous, Caught in the current of the aqua-blue sky (I try my hardest to be an optimistic light to all who pass me by) This liberty is beyond marvelous – oh so marvelous! Your words implant seeds of growth Your eyes, an undying oath I tried so hard to not let you down I ask myself, why do I wear this frown? It should be upside down instead I’m trying to shoo away the ghosts of the past, Rehearsing dread In my head In my head In my head
I can’t put my racing thoughts to bed I must be dreaming or something…give me a reason to see the light in goodbye I will try to be humble – I’ll not puff up like bread Don’t treat me like crumbs of deception – don’t shoo me away like I’m some bothersome fly
I tried so hard to not let you down I ask myself, why do I wear this frown? It should be upside down instead I’m trying to shoo away the ghosts of the past, Rehearsing dread In my head In my head In my head
I tried so hard not to cry… I ask myself why…why do I lie To myself…I’m living my fantasy…drowning in ecstasy On my own…I’m full of glee, but I feel slight melancholy You melted my heart of ice I’m your living sacrifice You watched over me with glistening eyes Your warmth never screams goodbyes
I feel these mixed emotions… I’m breaking up the clash between two oceans
You make me feel so complete You brought me up to my feet You motivated me to fight the good fight After all was said and done, we took divine flight You brought me to your heaven… You weaved an upside down frown on my face This happiness has no end…not even Death can make us part – we won the race! You make me feel so complete You make me feel whole again – you’re so neat! You brought us luck alone the way…I smile all day today We earned a prize – vast grace – it’s priceless I must say

Your Sub-zero Eyes

(needs to be edited...this song looks brilliant at first sight already though)

You vanished from my sight
I’m feeling this sorrow…this neglect already
I will decide to move on today or tonight
I will soon be ready
To run the extra mile

Pick on someone your own size…gravity; 
I’m pushing you away from me, 
For I’m already doused in dismay
Your sub-zero eyes are snowed under by 
Sorrow & Happiness
Now, I see the gray of today
We’re lost, soon to be found…
Just don’t drag me down to your own level, 
For my lamentation already weighs a pound – 
Are you an angel or a devil ? ? ?

You vanished from my sight
I’m feeling this sorrow…this neglect already
I will decide to move on today or tonight
I will soon be ready
To run the extra mile
With you for a while
Just smile and be with me
Till the end, we’ll be together in unity

We all want love and the ability 
To take flight tonight! ~ ~
We all have the strength and capacity 
To take fervor-flourishing flight ~
You are a grand, fine light in this world of woe – 
Can you help us fight the good fight?

You vanished from my sight
I’m feeling this sorrow…this neglect already
I will decide to move on today or tonight
I will soon be ready
To run the extra mile
With you for a while
Just smile and be with me
Till the end, we’ll be together in unity

Are you a true friend or an undependable foe?
I’m happy-go-lucky-bound and practically unpredictable…
We’re spinning around and round and round…we must search under the table
To uncover most of the clues to the mysteries
In this life that is full of miseries & reveries

I will soon be ready
To run the extra mile
I will decide to move on today or tonight
Although I’m feeling this sorrow…this neglect...this rejection...jaded for life
You vanished from my sight
I predicted you would by catching a glimpse of your sub-zero eyes . . . 
Reducing me to tears...
Shedding lies...bringing to life the Lord of the Flies...our hope dries . . . 
Now, we're facing our fears

Scapegoat

What happened to
What we were?
Why did it happen?
I don't know
But I know that
We had a good time
So don't even worry
I don't blame you
I blame them

Well, I'm the scapegoat
But I don't care
It's ok
I don't mind, I'll bear it
I'm the scapegoat

Driving dirty used to be
So fun to us
But now its blasphemy
What do they know anyway?
But if we did it again
We'd probably get caught
I don't blame you though
Don't even worry
You're a good guy

Well, I'm the scapegoat
But I don't care
It's ok
I don't mind, I'll bear it
I'm the scapegoat

They wear their suits
But I don't wear mine
They look clean cut
While I look scruff
They read the paper
I do what I should
The times were good though
They came and left
Left to early I'd say

Well, I'm the scapegoat
But I don't care
It's ok
I don't mind, I'll bear it
I'm the scapegoat

So I paid their fines
And broke my back
Doing pointless tasks
But now I know
That loving this
Wasn't wrong, it was right
So if they tell me otherwise
I'll turn a shoulder
And I'll leave it all behind

Being a scapegoat wasn't bad
Just another experience
I'm glad it happened
I'm glad I'm clean
I'm the scapegoat

homecoming

 
The old man sat drinking his morning brew.
    Wondering what in the world he was going to do.
His savings were gone due to paying doctors and such.
   He didn’t want to bother his kids, that would be asking too much.
Life had really turned sour, it had taken on such a hellish theme.
   It seems that when he closed his tired old eyes, it was only bad things he’d see 
in those dreams.
As he sipped on his coffee he closed his hands, He said Lord what has 
happened I once was a man.
   Lord please forgive me if I murmur a lot, You see I’m tired Sir, I’ve done all that I 
can.
The old man wasn’t foolish, nor overly proud, age was taking it’s toll and she 
wasn’t abundantly kind.
   The decisions he knew he must make, he knew he should do while he still 
was strong of mind.
He said Lord please I need Your guidance for these things I must do.
   He said I’ve always counted on You Lord You’ve always pulled me through.
Then he heard it the faint knock upon the door.
   He said come on in it’s open, then he heard the footsteps on the floor.
The voice he heard was so sweet as it beckoned him to his feet.
   He said I’ve come to take you home, there is someone you should meet.
And standing there behind the voice stood our Savior in his door.
   You’ve done your job, you’ve done it well, but now I need you more.
Thank You Father, the old man said as he placed his old hat upon his head.
   As he turned and looked there stood Jesus reading from His book, twas the old 
mans name which Jesus read.
He said you have been a good and faithful servant friend, so please enter in.
   The other part of the story was not the end, it’s just how this story begins.
                             Glory To The Lord

WE CAN BE VICTORIOUS AS CHRIST WAS

Did He die in vain, leaving no visible trace to remember Him by?
Did He fall into Satan's deceitful trap and let him continue to lie?

We can be victorious as Christ was and become immortal, 
let the evildoers destroy themselves with deeds so immoral!

Did His deviate from the holy path and be easily deceived by false glory,
no, He did not give into the Angel of Darkness, but resisted with hostility. 

We can be victorious as Christ was...truly divine and humble,
let others mock us with their irrationality, we will not tremble!

Did He speak against the tyrants of His day, to be praised for being bright?
No, He did not...but with His whip He cleaned a temple so impure and dark!

We can be victorious as Christ and be part of His prophesied kingdom,
and marked by true modesty and humbleness, we'll lose our humanism!

Did He want to die as an impostor to satisfy the ego of a would-be God?
No, He did not seek glorification without merit and be called the Word! 

We can be victorious as Christ was by denouncing all vanity and wickdeness,
not being crucified on Calvary as He was, but be resurrected as Lazarus was!

Prayers

I pray to God
Hear my cries

My family crisis
Never Dies

I am praying 
To find out Why

I couldn't bear 
Anymore

I pray to God
Hear these whispers

My family crisis
Is Getting Worse

I am Praying
So that We can Live
Something Better

But where is
That Hidden Door?

I Pray to God for some answers!
We just had enough!
We Deserve some happinesss
We have meant no such Harm
We called Upon Your Blessings
We prayed so Hard
We wonder Why is this Happening
Fallen so deep
We are Breaking Apart!

Oh God
Hear My cries

God, Hear my Whispers

We are Struggling
To Survive..

Where is Our
Happiness...

Closer

Stepping closer,
Inches near what I've been waiting to devour,
Ever since a night without stars,
Gave all lost hope.
Somewhere in the darkness,
Eating any chance of life that lays in the open,
Anger thrusting my hold.
Looking further into the shadows,
Light getting dimmer.
Only giving a sign of one thing,
To hurry.
Fly behond grounds reach,
Closer,
If what I want is miles away,
Then that means I need to expand my mind miles longer.
Each footstep,
Each trail,
Leading me more near.
For maybe,
This will be eternity?
This is when, I ignore what's around me,
Embracing my hold.
What's really important,
Is the white outline,
Dimming as I squint my eyes.
To step closer,
To step right in front of it.
To stepping inside,
As fate decides what goes on next.

DEEP WITHIN MY HEART

Come take a walk with me,
   Through this long mind’s journey,
Where inside my every thought,
    Lies a secret that I hold,

A love I cannot deny,
   That runs rich within my mind,
And keeps me awake at night,
   Until the dawn of light,

A love so strong inside,
   But yet hidden from your eyes,
Untold within my heart;

Believe me when I express,
  What my heat had longed to say,
For through these gentle words,
  You’ll come to understand,
What my heat had hidden away,

And from my deepest feelings,
  My true love will surface,
That love that will never fade,
  Cause you will always remain,
Deep within my heart.

Liken Marriage to an Egg


The egg may be cracked
But, yes it can be fixed
With bit of bond and wax
And a few more little tricks

It’s only lost a bit of white
Not any of its yoke
The union yet still intact
Not too much really broke

With a bit more love and care
Some time to heal and mend
The crack can be set whole again
Made perfect in the end

believe in the magick

Believe in the magick in the power of each thought. For you are like a lovely 
flower, growing in a pot. You can do it, whatever goals you have ever sought 
and you can grow your roots and widen yourself to a great big plot. And don't 
let yourself be put on the spot. And whatever effort goes out is the same as 
you have brought. Takes time sometimes, don't get distraught. It'll be turned 
toward you every deed or need you've ever bought. Smile,you'll be happier, 
that's what I've learned and I've taught.

The American Legend

Soaring high, as the American's eagle pride higher now than ever before once more, elevated nearly every last peak how to mistreat the meek, weak unguided son why can't you offer unrequited love to everyone? oh, lord save me I cannot escape the agents that take hold of me, they surround me... So I levitate up and unbounded seems I've once again found it an escape, from an uneasy paradise This burst explosion A never ending love-peace energy welling up inside me like an underwater atom bomb forever and ever I shall go on accordingly unknown An art recession? let me make a correction this boy's a legend from birth on up banging hard breaking his way through the wall life can sometimes often throw up come crashing hard on the ground I wake knowing the feeling to lose everything except from what I learned from well known legends who made the wings I fly high on

The Act

"The smile then melts off her face
in a frantic heat of boiling, screaming rage
and trickles down into a pool
of boundless sorrow...."


React like you think they think you should
Whether or not you really feel good 

The act will pass on
and so will they 
soon enough

Don’t you show your pain
Keep pretending you’re still sane

This life 
is a dream 
and it’s not long now
‘till we all wake up

======================
Look for the song-----coming soon!

Control

I loved you. You were creeped out. I loved you. You were all I thought about. Dreams bring misery, To this little life. I will use trickery. I don't go down without a fight. I will survive without you. You don't control me anymore. I will survive without you. You're not for me to adore. The mess you made, Taking my life for granted, Leaving me in a barracade, You never knew how much you mented. I am in control. Foreign language brings nightmares, Because I would curse you, And you would figure out later, That I once loved you. Teardrops cover my doorstep. Remember how much you ment, I gave you my heart you kept. And you left me there when I wept. I will survive without you. You don't control me anymore. I will survive without you. You're not for me to adore. The mess you made, Taking my life for granted, Leaving me in a barracade, You never knew how much you mented. I am in control. You left me there, In the pouring rain. Bleeding without care, My feelings were drained. I left... I left... I left... The past behind. I will survive without you. You don't control me anymore. I will survive without you. You're not for me to adore. The mess you made, Taking my life for granted, Leaving me in a barracade, You never knew how much you mented. I am in control. You're not Mr. Man anymore. I took back my control. How does it feel being cold, To lose it???

Rejoicing

Let me replace your sadness, fears, pity and frustration…my heart’s thumping with anticipation & apprehension With jubilance, satisfaction, liberty and cheers – that would make you and I rather cheery without a flame of fury – cast away the grief and guilt in your mind We’ll be free like eagles, taking wing from on high and we’ll be lookin’ fine…we’re rejoicing with joyous jubilation We’ll be shimmering like the moonlight…and we’ll be flyin’ above cloud seven – we’ll be in our heavenly haven in no time – slow down, you’re flying too fast – slow down…I’m really falling behind *Chorus* I need you to ascend from your debris – let’s dance the night away! We will arise from our ashes like a fervent, blazing phoenix Tell me if I’m as handsome as the lion that’s graceful, strong and courageous…I know for a fact that you are dangerously magnificent and gloriously precious Believe in me…reflect on me…let’s push away the worries that want to ruin our night spent together…God has two hearts to fix I love it when you wrap yourself around me like my own personal, warm blanket on this moon-drenched night – you are so gorgeous…so gracious! Come home with me and we’ll fly away from captivity…we’ll be no longer in chains & we’ll be on the same page You move me like a car, driving on the freeway – I’m hoping you won’t outdrive me today! Run along with me in the sun and we’ll be soaring in unity…we’ll be singing in unison and we’ll be pleased with a passion, but first – let’s find a way out of the cage Dance and prance all night long with me on this illuminated night and we’ll be having it our way… I need you to ascend from your debris – let’s dance the night away! We will arise from our ashes like a fervent, blazing phoenix We’ll be shimmering like the moonlight…and we’ll be flyin’ above cloud seven – we’ll be in our heavenly haven in no time and God will have two hearts to fix

Bless the Bruised and Crying

Take the broken into your arms
And heal them with your heart.
Take the bruised into your life
And let them know you care.
Take the crying into your soul
And don't let them fall apart.

Bless the ones who come before you
And give them what they need.
Bring forth those who love you
And spread their hidden joy.
Break up what's frozen them like stone
And look a little deeper to see.

Despairing children reach for you
And they long to call you home.
Do this for the little ones.
And remember; they are just children.
Don't turn the other cheek when you look upon their tears
And try to never, ever, leave them all alone.

Take the broken into your arms
And heal them with your heart.
Bless the ones who come before you
And give them what they need.
Despairing children reach for you
And they ask their questions for you to heed.

Take the bruised into your life
And let them know you care.
Bring forth those who love you
And spread their hidden joy.
Bless the bruised and crying
For only your love can they share.

I swear she's Erin born
dancing mad till lazy Summer's sun

One Minute

One minute is all I have to say
]what want to happen someday
One chance is given to me
To tell all that I want to see

But I’m scared to grab this opportunity
For in that one minute I might lose my sanity

One minute is all I have to touch you
And kiss you goodnight too
Oblivion might suddenly burst
Then everything might get worst

But I’m scared to grab this opportunity
For in that one minute I might lose my sanity

One minute is my last chance to say
How  you broke my heart from the very first day
And how you stole the laughter in my life
When you want another girl to be your wife

Go and grab that bald man, he is a giver
One minute that passes by might be tool ate
But once he turns you can’t ask him to wait
Then this one minute chance is gone forever

Another moment to make sense of growing up

I have a hole in my heart and I'm not sure where it starts. Everything used to make so much sense to me, now I'm not sure who I'm going to be. It could just be part of growing up, because this feeling has came before, let's fill up another cup. let's drink to the way life used to be, and how life is now to you and me. when we get older, let's hope we still stand shoulder next to shoulder. I know life with you is the only thing that helps me make it through. the ups and downs of this life have us riding on a never ending roller coaster, with every up always leads a huge fall down. I have faith in us that we can make it through it all, because once every down fall has fell leads another rise up that can bring us another time that we don't have to dwell. So I'll stay with you for as long as forever, and hope that we will never say never.

~ Cry of the Muse ~

Of-gentle beginning-and tender song ... ! That we would gratify love in its truest affection. Stand stead fast- uphold it yield to no other-duty ... ! To-have our-souls' so-identified-unified coexisting- exclusively-mid-this ... . To-live, would I die to give the measure of my-soul- just-to-have this ... once ... ! So place me within, make me the-essence of-the-art- lay me down carry me off- as I would be a child lost amid the grandeur- of its promise ... ! Allow this ink to consume us be the genuine eminence, what we reach-for through the humble virtue, heart-of this quill ... ! So all may view soar higher, and even higher still. Be captured, taken within deep- far and away beyond- the bitter part of this world, into the true benignity, flourishing and forever evolving, amid themselves ... ! Yes help me build me up, mold me-yes- come find me ... ! Trick me friend by slight of hand bend me- yes break me down shatter me again, and again truly I care-not ... ! Fill this paper in-its preparedness ... innocence ... verity, hope ... with the sweet passion elation of our souls ... ! Yes carry me before this-vision ... ! Restrain me-not ... . Set our-soul-free ... ! Please ... ? That we may gratify love-uphold it. Yes yield-then ... only-beauty ... ! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Author notes Written to the (Braveheart) theme By: Enya The expression of this poem was written from within the greater depths, of my soul. It was a cry of my muse. The passion beside which I stand and the hope through which I write. The joy we both carry for the other, and peace and faith in each other, in which we abide. Before this writing my muse had taken a vacation. So willing, I am open to suggestion. ~ Thank you for reading this piece of my work ... God bless you ... (The reason that there are Hyphens "so many of them") is because I have a computer that speaks them with a faster and slower and higher and lower pitch of voice, giving a certain kind of ebb-and-flow to the work with a softer more fervent and realistic and consistent tone, when I use the hyphens and other punctuation in the certain places that I do, when in telling it what to do. Allowing it to speak in even a moderate voice if I choose. It sounds very free flowing when I hear it, and I can only hope that you will be able to here it in the same way. Thank you for reading and God bless you ... ~

A Beautiful Memory

It’s hard to break away from this life
But it’s harder to stay this way forever’
It’s not good to be a lover
But to be a quitter is worse.

Go on. Move on.
Strive to make your life better.
Break away. Stay away.
When you go you shall carry away
 A beautiful memory.

It’s good to taste life’s promises
But I don’t want my dreams to turm to ashes
Sometimes I’m annoyed at this life
Gotta take this pain out of my head

Cause I’ll never be a loser
I’ll never be a quitter

So I gotta move on.
I gotta go on to make life much better.
Break away. Stay away
When I go I shall have
A beautiful memory . . . with me.

Shes an angels

She looked at me with her eyes
Healing everything even my lies
Even when I am descending
She never gives me an ending

All becomes peaceful with no pain
Not pushing her away I gain

Acting if she is my own 
Never she is harder than stone
Generating pure spirit is a cure
Evening lights shine so pure
Love of all things she holds
Some love stands in time so bold

Early Bird

Be the early bird?
Don't you know I'm sick of eating worms?
I'll take my time,
'Cos hurrying has never been worthwhile.
Sitting outside,
Watch the clouds float by.
No I'll never be one to make time fly.

Feed the birds,
The ones too late for catching worms.
Don't you know they try?
But hurrying has never been their style.
It's raining outside,
Watch the gloomy sky.
No a few drops of rain won't spoil my day.

Ask the early bird,
Where does he go to catch his worms?
Does it pass the time?
When shall it seem like a wasted life?
It's cold outside,
Watch the hot air rise,
No don't rush around and wish away you life

I've Crawled Ten Miles

I've crawled ten miles before
Even when they offered me more
Take it from me, babe, life's great
All you have to do is be patient, wait

Theres more to this life than just thrills
Don't keep doin' what you're doin', it kills
I've offered advice to you many times before
But you don't seem to see that theres more
Theres more to life than you think
More than cuttin' lines on the sink
More than blackin' out in your room
Keep it up and you'll meet your doom

I've crawled ten miles in your shoes
Snortin' coke and drinkin' the booze
Keep it up and you're gonna lose
So come on baby, you gotta choose

They lead you down an unknown path
If you keep it up you'll incur death's wrath
Don't let them tell you, "It's alright, take more."
Don't let them do it, what do they take you for
Drugs and booze aren't always the way
I'll offer you more advice, if I may
Push the snow and booze far away
Droppin' them is the only way

I've crawled ten miles in your shoes
Snortin' coke and drinkin' the booze
Keep it up and you're gonna lose
So come on baby, you gotta choose

Snow

it was just white in my dream, in my sleep, in a pair of my closed eyes. then the cold ice falls in love with my eyes which never slept. i always find my eyelashes wet frost the dew on the grass, in the morning and evening. then the white color was also in love to my body. delightedly shower me, bathe my body. my body suddenly has a bathroom with a tub full of eternal white. and my memories swam in a huge plow. i do not know where will it go. you know, i always imagined snow coming your house, knocking on your door, a pair of your pinched cold eyes trying to look through the whit snow, watching me playing in the snow, alone. and you come along.

WILD STICKHORSE REMUDA

   Ponytails and blue jeans 
Sat at Papaw's knee, 
Watching as he whittled 
On old branches from a tree. 
    And while he talked of cowboys 
And big old Texas ranches, 
He trimmed away the rough spots, 
While I dreamed of pony dances. 

     A wild stick horse remuda 
Began to run and play,
With every loving stroke,  
As he peeled the bark away.
     Using his "Old Timer"  
And carving in my brand, 
The best that he could find
And cut and shape with his own hand. 

     Now, each one of them was special,
And I felt I was too, 
As they kicked up dust behind 
This cowgirl buckaroo. 
     With reins of pink hair ribbon, 
Shoe strings and baling twine, 
There was "Buckin' Birch" and "Oakie," 
And "Ole Sticky" made of pine, 

     "Sassafras," and "Blackjack," 
"Willow," "Blaze," and "Scat," 
I never did corral 'em -- 
I just left 'em where they sat. 
     But next mornin', on the front porch, 
'stead of roamin' wild and free, 
They'd found their hitchin' rail, 
‘cause Papaw lined 'em up for me. 
  
     Along our trails together 
There were many lessons learned, 
Like bein' a cowboy through and through 
Is something that you earn 
     We'd partner up together, 
And team up in cahoots,
Once he defied my Mama,
Bought me red cowboy boots. 

     And often, when I wondered 
What to do on down the road, 
He'd always tell me, "little girl, 
When you get there you will know," 
     Sometimes you have to let things go, 
Sometimes you stand and fight, 
And anything worth doin', 
Is still worth doin' right. 

     With my wild stick horse remuda, 
We rode the range for miles, 
I knew I'd won my Papaw's heart 
By the way he'd laugh and smile, 
     I still have his sweat-stained Stetson, 
His boots, and his old knife, 
Sometimes I take them out 
Just to measure up my life. 
      
     And hold him closer to my heart, 
And know I have to try, 
To live up to the honor 
Of the wonder-days gone by. 
     On my stick horse remuda,
I learned the cowboy way, 
I’d give up everything I own 
To ride with him today. 

    My wild stick horse remuda 
Was quite the varied band, 
Born and bred with me in mind 
And trained by his own hand. 
     I’m longing for the legends, 
And the way we used to roam, 
With my wild stick horse remuda, 
And the man that we called "Home."

Better half

Instead of killing one another
we should learn to heal each other;
Instead of stealing from each other
we should give to one another;
Instead of lying all the time 
we should speak forth only truth;
In the  midst of what's destroyed 
you could be created new;
If the bad outweighs the good 
there is something you could do;
Slowly cast away your hate
until Gods' love shines through you;
Don't let the devil use you
with his lies and yet he laughs;
'cause his smile turns to a frown,
if learned to use your better half

You Inspire Me

You inspire me to have greater incentive, to put my life in perspective to a higher
level that I can achieve
You put the hope in me to want something better
To push myself so that I can muster the ability to take not what has come to pass

You give me the hope of a new tomorrow not to sit back and shake my head in 
sorrow
You make my heart beat faster and my pulse race with adrenalin flowing
thru my veins
You make me feel that I am someone special, not to settle for less than what
I  duly deserve
You call my name with a whisper of a caress, making me wonder with 
anticipation until I see you again

I not only think of you with a great fondness, but I also want you to know that you
inspire me to no end

Bright Day

It's a bright day with you Lord

Yellow

Yellow is the color
of the suns shining ray
yellow is the beak
of a soaring blue jay

A spark of yellow 
as the sun sinks away
naturally preparing 
for a brand new day

Yellow is the tip 
of a raging fire
like the sweetness in candy
which all kids desire

Listen to the yellow kite
flap in the air
creating a scene 
for all to stare

Yellow can make anything
turn bright
letting it shine through

We'll Be Having It OUR Way - part 4 of Cherry-top Bliss

I look up to you…what in the world are you doing to me? 
Be still…healing’s near…stop being doused in dismay…we’ll get through these 
hardships no matter what’s in our way

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

*Chorus* 
I need you to ascend from your debris – let’s dance the night away! We will 
arise from our ashes like a fervent, blazing phoenix
Tell me if I’m as handsome as the lion that’s graceful, strong and 
courageous…I know for a fact that you are dangerously magnificent and 
gloriously precious
Believe in me…reflect on me…let’s push away the worries that want to ruin 
our night spent together…God has two hearts to fix
I love it when you wrap yourself around me like my own personal, warm 
blanket on this moon-drenched night – you are so gorgeous…so wondrous!

Have no fear…we’re beautiful like stars that shine and love is serpentine in 
our heart of joy and jubilation 
Embrace freedom and quit that foolish cryin’…we’ll keep on tryin’ to fight 
away the ghosts of the wicked past
We’ll be free like eagles, taking wing from on high and we’ll be lookin’ fine…
we’re rejoicing with eloquent exultation 
We’ll be shimmering like the moonlight…and we’ll be flyin’ above cloud seven 
– we’ll be in our heavenly haven in no time – slow down, you’re flying too 
fast!

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

*Chorus* 
I need you to ascend from your debris – let’s dance the night away! We will 
arise from our ashes like a fervent, blazing phoenix
Tell me if I’m as handsome as the lion that’s graceful, strong and 
courageous…I know for a fact that you are dangerously magnificent and 
gloriously precious
Believe in me…reflect on me…let’s push away the worries that want to ruin 
our night spent together…God has two hearts to fix
I love it when you wrap yourself around me like my own personal, warm 
blanket on this moon-drenched night – you are so gorgeous…so gracious!

Come home with me and we’ll fly away from captivity…we’ll be no longer in 
chains & we’ll be on the same page
You move me like a car, driving on the freeway – I’m hoping you won’t 
outdrive me today!
Run along with me in the sun and we’ll be soaring in unity…we’ll be singing in 
unison and we’ll be pleased with a passion, but first – let’s find a way out of 
the cage  
Dance and prance all night long with me on this illuminated night and we’ll be 
having it OUR way…

Graduation Goodbye

High school days are gone
And all the work are done
As we are about to take a leap
Our memories together I will keep

There will be tears to cry
As we move on and bid goodbye
I know it will be hard to fly
Without you on my way up high

Thanks for the lift
That is a great gift
The jokes and your smile
Made me forget the pain for a while

Now is the time to take the crown
Don't face the world with a frown
Let them see your smiling face
And dancewith them with grace

When all of today's work are done
It  doesn't mean our freindship is gone
I hope someday you'll be fine
You'll realize that  . . . 
Graduation is not Goodbye

Low Man Is Due

A low man is due...
My eyes seek reality,
My fingers feel for faith.
Touch clean with a dirty hand,
I touch the clean to the waste.
I fall cause I let go,
The net below has rot away.
And I cry to the alleyway,
Confess all to the rain.
But I lie straight to the mirror,
The one I've broken to match my face.
The fire is so warm,
But nowhere safe from the storm.
And I can't bear to see,
What I've let me be.
So wicked and worn.
So as I write to you,
Of what is done and to do.
Maybe you'll understand,
I won't cry for this man.
Cause low man is due.
So low the sky is all I see,
All I want from you is forgive me.
My eyes seek reality,
And my fingers seek my veins.
There's a dog at your back step,
He must come in from the rain.
But you bring that poor dog in from the rain,
Though he just wants right back out again.
So my fingers feel for faith,
And my eyes seek reality.
So as I write to you,
Of what is done and to do.
Maybe you'll understand,
I won't cry for this man.
Cause low man is due.

heaven just seems so far away

I hear your word and I know the truth
No fear of death in this unknown place
Sprits going to rise up across the human race
Wise men tell me what to do in my day

Heaven just seems so far today 
Lord come down take me away

Thoughts fill my head bring the once dead to life
Will there be other men of god after me
Want to feed the hungry help the blind see the word
Need to find the answers of the questions of this world

Heaven just seems so far today 
Lord come down take me away

Lord forgive us for all the sin we have had
All the bad it’s so sad but now I’m glad I found the lord
So many lost children never to be found
We are all homeward bound from here

Johnny 's Song

He was born to sing upon his land
Now he's resting in God's Everlasting hands

Didn't matter who you were
That voice you'll remember for sure

A voice that could shed many a tear
Or make you just want to stand up and cheer

Oh how'll I miss this one hell of a man
Made me today of who I am

Across oceans far and wide
Johnny sang his songs with passionated pride

Now he soars amidst his eagle friends
High above the rockies bends

Oh Johnny this song's for you
As I sing about your eagle friends too




In Loving Memory 
       of 
John Denver  { 1943 -1997 }


Soar My Feathered Friend

CounterCulture

We are young and try to be, Independent and free.
Got the world beneath our feet, they took our innocence to keep.
These the men of old, who swapped their hearts for shining gold.
Now they try to steal our souls to wrap around their brittle bones.
Locked in chambers made of stone, their children they beg to play alone.
Wrapped up tight in broken ropes, they pray for guns instead of hope.


But we found love, we will thrive, despite the lies that you deny.


And we will end what you begun. Turn our backs onto the sun.
We run through the night fighting for our sacrificial right.
And we howl to the moon, like it is what we were born to do.
And when we hear the gypsy's chant, we stand up tall and dance.
When the sun begins to rise, we bow our heads and close our eyes.
Because we are young and try to be, independent and free.

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
                                     with these such good vibrations
                                     from the summer in the city
                                     way down in Key Largo
                                watching my beach baby beach baby
                                           from the dock of the bay
                                   





Just Something I was working on

Hate to see the summer fun end

A Song

I write this words
Words underneath me
Words Within my Soul
I am trying to Set Free

I am writing a song
A song about you
A song that will change my feelings
To nothing new

I am trying to feel better
I am trying to feel good
But you always be my fear
And destroys all my mood

The days are getting darker
And all dreams I wished had fled away
I do not want to know you
But fate has been so cruel to me these days

I will a write a song
A Song that will show you
How much pain I have in me
How much pain you never even knew

These words I wrote
The paper that I hold
I am strumming my guitar
And I am trying to Show

These words of me...
The song of you...
These tunes from me..

This song is for you.

magical land

Chorus:  
            Can you hear me?/ Can you hear my voice calling for you?/ saying that everything 
is gonna be okay/ don't be afraid/ to close your eyes and take my hand/ let me take you to 
a magical land/Just give your heart and soul/ and let us both go/ to magical land/

Verse1:  I know times can be hard/ times can be sad/ but don't take it to heart/ or get angry 
and mad/ I know that you're in pain/ you feel like you're going insane/ but don't worry there's 
something to gain/ you can join me on an adventure ride/ just take my hand and prepare to 
fly/ just tell me if you-u-u/

chorus: 2x  

Verse2: I know that the world can be cruel/ the world can use you and spit you out/ make 
you feel like there's no way out/ you wanna cry/ you wanna curl up and just hide/you feel 
like your mind and body's not right/ you wanna put up your hands and fight/ or just let it all 
go/ can you hear my call?/ 

Chorus:3x  ( Whatever the reasons/ i'm here to help pick up the pieces/ just put your trust 
in me/ and baby you would see/ the beauty in magical land/)

Lullaby for the Grieving

Lay your head down precious one
And dry your eyes right now
For dreams of happy endings
Will be coming anyhow

The rains will stop, that much we know
Though we may not know how
So walk ahead to dryer ground
Where my love will abound

Know that when you're all alone
I've never been more near
And when you think I'm gone from you
I'm holding you, my dear

The nights will pass before you know
The sun will rise once more
I'll be with you in the sunshine
And with you in the storm

In the sunshine, in the rain
Just look up to the sky
And wish you may and wish you might
And to you, I will fly

I'll never leave you, never go
Where you can't find me there
Just look inside your heart to find
The love we share

A BELL FOR MY FLOWERS

A BELL FOR MY FLOWERS

My FLOWERS are keen
And watch what I do

My FLOWERS count time
And lies when they’re true

My FLOWERS fill a bowl
At the edge of my mind

There in the moonlight
My FLOWERS are enshrined

Fresh then are my FLOWERS fine
Love of floral, love of mine
Left alone, left to shine
All that’s bright and twice divine

My FLOWERS need a bell
That rings on Sunday morn

A bell of splendid color
For FLOWERS when they’re born

My FLOWERS lean north
To drink from porcelain dish

My FLOWERS lean south
As willpower turns to wish

Fresh then are my FLOWERS fine
Love of floral, love of mine
Left alone, left to shine
All that’s bright and twice divine

My FLOWERS follow kings
With gemstone and stained glass

My FLOWERS stand at guard
No ancient age shall pass

My FLOWERS catch rainbows
And blue peas in a spoon

My FLOWERS press aloft
Under starry winter moon

Fresh then are my FLOWERS fine
Love of floral, love of mine
Left alone, left to shine
All that’s bright and twice divine

RAMA INK.

Without a Dash of Shame

V.2: I’m trying to borrow a new frame of mind
Without a dash of shame…without a dash of dread…
Screaming at the top of my lungs – I’m blind! X2
I’ve been lost in paradise, but I’m suddenly aware of what lies ahead…
Someday, you’d stand by me and say what you wanted to say to me – there’s no 
need to feel dismay
Some say “you must pay the price one way or another”, but I say take your time 
and let your happiness never last
*Chorus* Oohh I knew you would come back Oooh I knew you would come back to me… Sometimes, I wonder if you love me or if you just pretend to love me so Oooh I knew you would come back Ooooh I knew you would come back to me… There’s days when I feel positive when you’re around, but I have to-to go… Oooh I knew you would come back Ooooh I knew you would come back to me… Someday, you’ll stay here with me…I pray…I pray that day would come someday Somehow, you’ll see me through the pain…dismiss the ghosts of the past… Oooh I knew you would come back Ooooh I knew you would come back to me… Someday, you’ll sit here and say what you wanted to say to me – there’s no need to feel dismay Some say “you must pay the price one way or another”, but I say take your time and let your happiness never last Oooh I knew you would come back Ooooh I knew you would come back to me… I’m no longer that magazine, alone on the magazine rack
V.3: My wounds are fresh and raw, so don’t pour your salt on it…I pray you won’t fade to gray; I pray you won’t say your goodbyes today – say what you need to say…every time I see you face, I ponder what’s going on in your mind – can you (invite me to stay?)x2 oooh… oohoohoooh… Your bitter words…your bitter, heartless words sting me like a bee on the palm of my hands Let me melt your freezing resentment away…just like nightfall, fading away until morning comes…When the dawn arrives, it will be a sundrenched day – maybe it will brighten up my darksome pit – I understand…what you’re going through…but why have you gone away Somewhere else where I can’t find you? oohoohoooh… (we’re like two opposite grand lands; we’re foes, fighting with our might – putting things in our own hands)

We Are Finally Alive

Breathe In Deep
To Taste The Tainted
Hold Your Breath
You'll Be Glad You Waited
Become The Moment
And Reach Inside
We're Finally Alive 
So Enjoy The Ride

Hearts Are Faint
To The Subtle Sensation
Waiting To Exhale
Moments Before Creation
The Smoke In Circles
Fades With Time
It's Our Turn Now
Together We'll Climb

One More Breath
And One Last Thought
If This Were My Last
Would We Get Caught?
Hold My Hand Once More
Watching The Smoke Fade
We're Finally Alive 
And Our Memory Is Made

Ho Ho Ho

Go to sleep 
Go to sleep
My little ones

Or Santa
Just won't come


For he knows when you are awake
For He knows when you are asleep

Close your weary eyes now
And I'll go take a little peek


Tap Tap Tap
Upon the roof

It's santa coming 
For I hear reindeer's hoofs

Hush Hush now
Don't say a word

Better hurry 
And fall fast to sleep
Or he just may leave you a big turd

Let sugar plums
Dance in those pertty little heads

As I made sure
Santa was nice and fead

Cookies and milk
With nothing else

Oh thank you my dear Lord
For this nice little cord

For they are fast to sleep
Now I can go back to bed
And count my own lost sheep

Midnight Lily

When we are all alone
when we don’t know where to go
we need to overcome
the feet that trample us to the ground
 
Some will persist to stay
others will fall for everything
if they don’t stand for anything
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
if you hold on now more will come
…they promise you
but if you always hold on
love can be true
leaf turns to leaf
live it when you can
 
We all fall into grief
 not all the same
lets be strong and rise again
show them whom you are
mortal
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
it seems to get harder
everyday
but happy can’t be happy
without sorrow

Babycakes

Babycakes, I know you're sad and it makes my heart break. So, baby, please just put a smile on your face, And I'll wipe the tears away, Because its you and me against the world, no matter what they say. So, Babycakes, You know that I would do whatever it takes To show you that I love you, and that I am here to stay with you For the rest of my days, And there is nothing in this world that can take me away. Girl, I've got my sights set on you. I've got my heart stuck on you, And there is nothing that I can do To free my mind from this curse, The curse of loving you so much that it hurts. For better or for worse. So, cheer up, butter cup, don't let it get you down. I hope you know my spirits die every time you frown. Whatever you wish, I'll make it so. I'll do anything just so you don't Cry yourself a river, slip, fall in, and drown. So, smile, baby, and never stop. **** this world, cuz you're on top. Whatever happens, you'll be fine, So sleep at night with peace of mind, Oh, love of mine. <3

How I feel

You are 
the sugar to my Kool-Aide
the hot sauce to my chicken wings
the basement to my house party
You are
the music to my d.j.
the alcohol when my CD won't play
the outlet for my electricity
Without
you there is no me 
light shines through you and I see
someone I want to be.....with 
you complete me
When I'm 
with you I'm happy
and glad that I have you
there's so many feelings 
That I 
have deep inside me
It's like you're apart of me
I feel your heart beeting 
with mine they're in tune 
One day
we will be together 
we're lovers for ever 
I just wanna tell you 
This is how I fell

all shall be well

with you all shall be well

what matter s where you dwell?
wether in the cave or bay
God's presence abounds everywhere
His blessings and joy shall meet you anywhere

give your song a sweet voice
when you have no reason to sing
make joy your only choice
and your heart shall leap with a wing

if your way be darken
and your path filled with thorns
just gaze right into heaven
your help shall come with funs

no fiery tale for me to tell
when the world looks like a hell
listen as this voice rings like a bell
that through Jesus's love,all shall be well

I Sing Praises

I sing praise to Thee, oh Lord.
You, who has brought me out of my misery,
You, who has been my comforter;
I sing praise to Thee, oh Lord.
You have heard my prayers,
You have answered according to Your will;
For this, I sing praise to Thee, oh Lord.
You have softened my hardened heart,
You have soothed my weary soul,
I sing praise to Thee, oh Lord.
You have provided for my needs when low,
You have blessed me with talents and gifts,
For this, I sing praise to Thee, oh Lord.
You have healed me when pain and sickness was there,
You calmed my anxious mind,
I sing praise to thee, oh Lord.
You opened my eyes that I may see Your glory,
You opened my heart to experience Your love.
For this, I sing praise to Thee, oh Lord.
I will sing of Your praise forever and ever.

Remember Me

Your soft, caring voice, I will remember. 
Your smooth, carressing skin, I will remember. 
No matter what happens I will remember. 
If you leave, I will remember not to let you go. 
If you are hurt, I will remeber to heal your pain. 
If you cry, I will remember to pretend not to know. 
And If I die, I will remember to lie in the rain. 
And although it may seem odd, I will remember, you. 
Always, as my loss of sight, of skies of blue, And I suppose that you always knew. 
That I would always love you....

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

LET HIM WALK IN YOUR PATH

When you think darkness is too eery
and you have the bold faith of Moses,   
let Him walk in your path without roses...
and His light will shine so brightly!


You have never seen him, and yet
believe Him to be your Redeemer;
you've heard His message and thought:
He must be the only King and Savior!


Let him walk in your path full of clove,
to guide you through the very end;
more flowers will grow around the bend,
where you planted the seeds of love!


When sunsets fade as smiles do, let your head rest
in His loving arms...He will take care of the tempest;
then you can sleep in serenity while stars gleam...
trust in Him rather than trusting in a vain dream!      


Isn't a distant glow the beginning of a shining light?
So is hope that slowly grows and shows its might!
Choose salvation over damnation, glory over power;
let Him walk in your path and He will end every dire!

Two Peas in a Pod - From the Bottom of My Heart

We’ll be together again – I assure you! I’m sure of it from the bottom of my almost-broken heart! Just keep in mind that we will stumble into obstacles and we must fight together to win this time around! We need to work as a terrific, totally-prepared team, letting out fired-up, fervor fuel and confident steam at the same time – sweet! I just wanna joyfully scream, but I must be self-controlled – so, instead, I shall gladly beam! *CHORUS* & *BRIDGE* I reduce to dust…I must…I must move on with life one way or another…take my advice or have it your way, okay? I hate to say this, but from the beginning of time till the end of time, I knew you were the black checkers and I were the white checkers– maybe we’re opposites that attract – two peas in a pod to be exact…tomorrow, we’re expected to tie with each other and go our separate ways…if you would agree without any disputes or quarreling or arguing involved – our future fate is awaiting us to run to it…we’re heading another direction and it makes me wanna scream instead of beam, though we’re on each other’s team – move forward like a mountain, fast-flowing stream with many petite fish in it – is this a dream or is this reality? I’m happy to the supreme! *CHORUS* & *2nd BRIDGE* Don’t let the words slip out of your mouth and let there be light! Envy becomes serpentine in my lost soul, going out of control – it’s tearing my heart apart and it’s starting to scare me – run away from me, you horrendous, hatred-headstrong hare! You have one last chance to change… It’s our last option to rearrange… It’s time to adjust to this phase Graze in your own maze…graze in your own blazing maze From the bottom of my heart, I know that you are my genial angel that caught my daydream-like gaze It’s my time to fly and it’s your time to wave goodbye To the tragedy…dragging us down with catastrophic purposes and we can outrun it by flying so high… We’re flying so high…a little too high, but we’re making sure we reach above the aqua-blue sky, feeling the blessed breeze pass us by You have one more strike until you’re out… You’re still a peace-abiding angel without a doubt… It’s time to land on another grand land Do you understand what’s close at hand? Don’t let the words slip out of your mouth and let there be light! Envy becomes serpentine in my lost soul, going out of control – it’s tearing my heart apart and I’m thinking life is unfair; it’s like a game of truth and dare – dare to wonder what’s close at hand? I’ll lead you to the Promiseland…dare me to tell you where’s the grand land? It’s in the Joyous Island – you’re down to run a perilous, yet incredible journey-like errand? Bon voyage! You and I are no longer reduced to sand, but a rock that’s ground-bound – making a superstar-like stand – that’s mighty mind-blowing and grand

KILL




" K.I.L.L. "
(kind indivdual living life)

Written by Rodney R.


I kill cos I love life and love me
didn't before but now it's a relief
I'm a kind individual loving life
I had to figure this out myself
losing a wife. I'm moving on
now cos what's important is me 
in reality all I needed was to be free

I kill when im motivated let me demonstrate
my love is real but never ever fake made
some mistakes so I kill to bring peace in
my life turn the lights out time to say 
goodnight. A new world's out there just
waiting for me I'm going take it cos there
some that's hating on me. Before I die
I only wish not to be on anybody's
death list

I'm a kill for the first time and
it feels alright can't no one tell me if it's 
wrong or right I'm kill right now for the 
first time in my life i'm now happy
though I had to lose a wife. 
 
I'm a kill, I'm a kill, kill for life

A Dream

Outside my window these is a tree
Which is a symbol of only me
As I looked at the water
Where the milk mans daughter
Was wiggling her toes into neat little rows

I saw the guard dog dressed fireman’s wear
And from the chimney the smoke did stare
The flowers sat my window’s ledge
 And painted their faces and danced to the edge

While the ants marched to the drummers beat
And the grass withered in the summers heat
From the top of a willow a sparrow spoke
And the cat laughed at the squirrels joke

I felt a stirring upon my face
My heart was beating at quite a pace
It was then I felt a gentle poke
And so it was that I then awoke!!!

The promise of Spring

Summer ended too soon
Autumn leaves falls under the moon
Snowflakes chills the winter air
As spring  flourishes with care

Raindrops will slowly pour and give the seeds
A new hope after the cold and lonely season
The sun will shine as if it has never been deprived
Of rising during the cold and lonely season

The bitterness of seeing the leaves
Cut-off from its mother branches
The sorrowful  sight of trees
Uprooted from Mother Earth

Even if the flowers are already withered
For now it’s leaves are sleeping
A new branch  will soon come out
And the tree will be soon alive again

Snow will soon vanish from your way
The leaves of hope won’t fall soon
Neither shall the trees be uprooted
That’s the promise of spring God will keep forever.

In My Life - Quit Whistling the Blues, You Mockingbird

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

I'll Live Forever!

Thinkin’ back I wonder how my life had begun.
Father told me, " Well it began with the rising sun."
I asked my father, " When will it be done?"
He said, "Boy, it’ll be done when you have no fun!"

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!

Thinkin’ back I wonder where my friends had gone
They said, "To the liquor we’ve been drawn!
Drinkin’ too much and passin’ out on the lawn!
Not wakin’ up and headin’ home until near dawn!"

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!

Thinkin’ to myself I wonder where my family had headed
My mother said, "Well your baby sister has been wedded!
And gettin’ married your big brother has dreaded!
But don’t worry, I love you all, you’re tightly embedded!"

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!
I’ll live forever, I swear!
My death you won’t bear!
Don’t worry, dear!
It’s all so clear!
Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!

Thinkin’ back I wonder where my final piece had been
Blue eyes, red hair, prettiest thing you’ve ever seen!
Loved this lass since we were just young teens!
If I was a king, she would be my beautiful queen!

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!
I’ll live forever, I swear!
My death you won’t bear!
Don’t worry, dear!
It’s all so clear!

but dont go looking for love

you have to let love find you
"you gotta believe"

One Day

We've been through
Roughening waves,
But we sat and never threw
Ourselves out of furious rave.

One day my heart
Will be glad that
We haven't yet fallen apart
And are not as sad as before.

Our time was like a boat...
No matter where we went,
Our time was well spent,
Even while we continuously float.

One day you'll be as happy
As you were in that rural place.
We'll together repair our broken vase.
You and I were inseparable friends...

So I wished it didn't end.
Our bond has been fragile
For quite some while.
I've been thinking of ridding it...

Though I know
I'll resolve it all somehow.
So I hope you will accept the flora
I shall give to you one day...

I'm In Love With You

I'm here to say what I feel
here to tell you that I have loved you and it's for real
Every day I see your face
I can't wait to see you again and feel my heart race
I'm in love with you
I hope you love me too
At work, at home, in pictures, on the phone
I can't wait till' you become my own
The hurtful pain I once used to have
I see your face
It makes you glow and puts a smile on my face
My feelings are so strong for you
But can you even love just like I do?
The way you touch, the way you feel
The things you say is what makes this real
Because I'm in love with you
And I hope you love me too...

Little Me

Wonderfully, beautifully
Created in Your sight,
Though I feel so small, insignificant,
I know Your Word is right

You formed me
and created me
and lifted me high for all
to see,
You made no mistake and it
was all good,
Lord you made little me

Sometimes I feel so weak
Knowing you are all strong,
Now and then I feel I'm a mistake
But Your Word tells me that's wrong

Predestined for Your works
But what if I fail?
You'd never give me more,
more than I could handle

Wonderfully, beautifully
Created in Your sight,
Though I feel so small, insignificant,
I know Your Word is right

You formed me
and created me
and lifted me high for all
to see,
You made no mistake and it
was all good,
Lord you made little me

IN THE BIBLE

In the bible there is a story,about a man ,
who brought his people out of slavery
He led them to a promise land,
So all his people could be free.

In the bible there is a story.
 about a man and his family.
Who built an ark in the desert,
and GOD change the desert into a raging sea.

In the bible there is a story
about a man as strong as he could be.
Until he met this girl,DELILAH.
Who brought him tragedy.

In the bible there is a story,
about a man from GALILEE.
Who shed is blood on the cross,
for all of our souls,such as you and me.

Oyster

The world is your oyster
And you are the pearl
Encased in you soft surroundings
But still able to twirl.
We are held inside this case 
To develop and grow
Into the people we want to become
To plant the seeds we want to sow.
So, we take a blank canvas
And place it in front of us
To prepare a masterpiece, a painted picture
Of hope, love, faith, and trust.
The chalk a child so lovingly holds
To make a pretty picture
Soon becomes our paintbrush of life
And takes us on an adventure.
We pearls travel through the ocean
To end up on the other side
We become the people we wish to be
When we journey through our lives.
The chalk runs in cascades around us
Mixing together our trials
Making our world form as one
Letting us travel for miles.
The world is our oyster
Providing us with a home
For us, the pearls, to journey in
Where we can become brilliant and well-known.

Won't Stay Down

How could you leave me so empty and alone?
When all I ever wanted, was a love to call my own
How could you walk away from everything we had
What did I do that was so very bad?
I just don't understand the actions that you've made
When upon your shoulders your burdens I have laid

You may think that I'll stay down 
I won't stay down for long
You chose to leave, I choose to stay
I'll take my heart and carry on

I may not know the reasons why you went away
I'll just save my heartache for another day
Why should I sit here, crying over you?
When I could find much better things to do
I never thought you'd walk away and leave me all alone
But since you're gone, I'll just move on, and call my life my own

So don't think that I'll stay down
For I won't stay down for long
You chose to leave, I choose to stay
So I'll take my heart and carry on

My Angel and I

A long road we've traveled, my angel and I
A dusty trail full of stones
And mountains that we've had to climb
To eventually get us home.
A long road we've traveled, my angel and I
But she's still here beside me
To wash away the that tears I cry
To wave away things I don't need to see.
We walk together through the troubles
Through the mysteries of life
We make our way through pain when it doubles
And march confidently through strife.
She picks me up when, like a toddler, I fall
She protects me whenever I choose to tumble
She picks up my burdens and carries them all
Because of her, my world never crumbles.
A long road we've traveled, my angel and I
And yet, here she is, still here 
Even though she's gone, she never died
Because she is me, but without tears.

Survivor's Guilt pt.2

Long-term parking lot lights cast
  VanGogh-halo radiance;
Gypsy moths flutter in mass, as
  though a papal audience.
Before you learn to soar, you must
  practice arts of patience;
It's not as though you never learned
  to call Maintenance.
      The dawn's terrible beauty, described
        as digits tipped in gold-gilt;
      Hoping to destroy the neccesity
        for survivor's guilt.

Open your eyes to share saved tears with
  all those who've loved and lost;
No more shall we wait upon those who 
  swear they've counted the cost.
Every season beginning in September's
  soon given to rust;
All flights end in New York, but, Trust
  can only be placed where it must.
      And what fragments shall we leave
        within Ancient Ilium's silt?
      How will future science someday perceive
        such entrenched survivor's guilt?

Friends since faced Fear's grim, ashen face,
  and found all this Inner Peace;
Disaster's site's now a mere 
  architectural paper crease.
Terror beyond cleansing, facial hair's 
  filth, clung gristle and bits.
Billboards and alarm clocks flashing
  dangerous, crimson digits.
      Still, sometimes, it gets so hard not to
        care and swear it's a jilt;
      Turn it around, it's no burden,
        it's only survivor's guilt.

All these signs I've witnessed, taken, yet,
  failed to truly express;
But, I'm trying to open tired eyes, 
  my minds a confused mess;
I feel like some fallen sinner, on his
  knees, yet to confess;
Maybe later, I'll pray for my own
  forgivness, more or less.
      Only now can we push it in to the
        true, actual hilt;
      Let'em all know the intensity
        of such survivor's guilt.

Deja Vu

I've written this a thousand times.
Rehearsed and reiterated my lines. 
Memorized them, now they're engraved in my mind. 

I've crumpled up this very paper and threw it at the wall.... 
Ten seconds later picked it up from the floor. 
Now I see the beauty in it I didn't see before. 

I've repented for these same sins and 
O' Lord here I am again. 
These are the same tears, I wept last week. 
I realize these are familiar words as we speak. 

This is the same awkward pause, a similar why and because. 
This is the very same glance I gave the walls. 
This is the same scream I yelled as I entered the hall. 
I've seen this before, I've seen this before.  
One thing has changed ...I'm not the same at all. 

Deja Vu

La, La, La

She strolls 'long the golden shore
Feeling so great, carefree
She knows she's trying her hardest
To be the best that she can be.
Her music plays in her ears
As she tap-dances in the sand
She's her own superhero
She doesn't need anyone's hand.
She's made it through on her own
She didn't give up or give in
She worked her way through that part of life
And she knows she was the one to win.
She cartwheels through the soft waves
That splash along the shore
Her hair is falling free around her
She's not held captive anymore. 
The light, cotton material of her blouse
Flies around her gently
The soft wind blows her hair
As she waltzes in front of the sea.
The world is her stage, her audience
She isn't afraid anymore
She doesn't care who is watching
As she dances along the shore.
She is everything she wants to be
She's proven everyone wrong
People said that she needed their help,
But she had her own help all along.
So there's that girl, dancing with no music
Into the sea breeze, like her own spa
Everyone's watching, waiting for her
And she just sings, "La, la, la."

Destiny To Die

We die in these streets as if it's fate
blood boiled by tragedy'f hate
so it hurts to see the brothers body dropped
4 more steps needed but his ass flopped
runnin' with that make-shift crew he had
little boys so soft tryna act bad
yet to realize what we goota do
die, get shot, and now we cryin' foo'
but when eyes dry from teary state
mournin' now as we make eerie wait
destinies to die eyes feel dreary
but I hope that the killa's fear me
so I can in these streets breathe easy
instead of clashin' live freely
How can a brotha wipe his eyes dry
endless the questions always ask why
reflection of death in the mirror
strong and able bodied paul bearers
but even though foredestined to die
In my heart I know we'll always cry

we'll always cry

A dream comes true

                         A dream comes true.
                  
                 Long awaited, now at last.
                 Bringing forth, now the dream alive
                 Conceived in mind, days and nights.
                 The laurels of victory, here they come.
                 Like a pregnancy, thus entailed,
                 The agony, the pain and fear alike.
                 But the joy of birth surpassed them all.
             
                 A dream comes true!
                 Costlier than money can trade
                 The heart becomes a fountain
                 And there flows the stream of joy

Our poverty!

Look Inside Your Heart (Edited Version)

(Verse 1)
Got to take your time, Slow down
Open your eyes look around
Lifes to precious to throw away
Put a smile on your face

(Bridge)
Listen to the music that’s in your heart
All your searching
Answers you seek hidden away
Its all inside of you

(Hook)
Look inside.. Look inside 
Look inside yourself
The answers inside of you
Look inside your heart

(Verse 2)
Ten steps forward twenty steps back
Some people spend a life time
Trying to find out who they are and what to do
It doesn’t come easy

(Bridge)
You try and try sooner or later you break down and cry
Searching all my young life
Trying so many things jumping from job to job
Searching for answers I already had 

(Hook)
Look inside.. Look inside 
Look inside yourself
The answers inside of you
Look inside your heart

(Verse 3)
Slow down take your time
Put a smile on your face 
Lifes to precious to throw away
The answers inside of you

(Hook-Final Chorus)
Look inside.. Look inside 
Look inside yourself
The answers inside of you
Look inside your heart

Key To My Heart

I had closed the door upon my heart
And would let no one come in
I had trusted and I'd been hurt
But it would never happen again
I had locked the door and thrown the key
As hard and as far as I could
Love would never enter there again
My heart was closed for good
Then you came into my life 
And you made me change my mind
Just when I thought that tiny key 
Was impossible to find
That's when you held out your hand
And showed me I was wrong
Inside it was the key to my heart
You'd had it all along!

The Birds

They say that life is one big mile,
measured by the increments you choose.
If I ever met a cat who went by feet,
I'd like him to take a walk 
in my doozin' shoes.
Cuz' the bird outside my window told me
life's too short to fret and give a damn;
told me it's all about the inches,
anything past is but a ripple in the sand.

There's something to be said about the birds, they fly
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly
The bird's fly high, and kiss the sky
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly.

They say that life is one big labyrinth,
it's all about the corridors you choose.
If I ever met a frog who found his pad,
I'd like to take a walk in his
oh so salient shoes.
Well, the bird outside my window told me 
life's too short to fret and give a damn.
Told me to play my own music, all the bird's
know life's just one enormous jam.

There's something to be said about the birds, they fly
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly
The bird's fly high, and kiss the sky
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly.

In My Life - This Moment Between Us

I fell in love in this grand land Love found me and kissed me After all, sweet reveries did embrace me Affection grows in your heart – Love becomes serpentine in your keen, passion-whelmed heart from the start Our hearts were meant to be together in unity – They weren’t meant to bleed in tainted misery *chorus* I’m don’t have the guts to say that you saved me from the death’s snare But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal the truth of what I feel for you deep inside In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave I was caved in by the cravings of my heart The darkness once ripped me apart But, you repaired me and I recovered pretty fast So, please listen up! I must tell you about my good and bad past Fear doesn’t exist here Get a grip on the rope of hope All anxieties are gone We dream on like daydreamers, awaiting another great, delight-illuminated dawn I’ll love you until my life is no more I’ll love you, even if you have strayed into the darkness I love you from the bottom of the ocean to the heavens above I’ll love you – I won’t get over you and you’re my love at first sight – you were and still are a dazzling, surreal sight – you kiss me and I’m overwhelmed with passionate bliss I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with me I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse Before I met you…of course I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone Before I met you, I was on my own V.3 To be honest, I didn’t give it the best I can If I were your man… It would be hard to be in my skin But, I absolutely love you with a passion from deep within I am hurt to the core Words can make a big impact on others I need you, I want you, I bleed for you This moment between us Is so sacred, so vital and so delightful to me *chorus* I’m never fully capable of saving you from your demise’s snare – but, I have some hopeful light of delight to share with you – be not in despair! But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal the truth of what I feel for you deep inside In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave

of santa claus coming to town
with rudolph near
ringing in the christmas cheer

so come dance with me
under the christmas tree
wearing our balls of holly

oh frosty the snowman
do you see what I see
do you see what I see
a sleigh
a sleigh
bringing christmas gifts our way
so its time

to hurry up this rythem and rhyme
for santa's here
spreading his christmas cheer
so goodnight my friend
until we meet once again
for my love for you
will always hold true

Megan Image --For My Poetry Muse--

     Megan Image (For My Poetry Muse.)
It makes me cry sometimes
just seeing you or knowing you are near;
or somewhere else that I have never been;
part of the past but never far from here

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

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

Wrap your arms around me

Like My sweet sweet sumer love

For shes the only one for me

on the wings of a dove

And now will be forever known as

Why Lord, Why me?

Lord, so many times, “I ask You why?”
Why have You chosen me?
What am I to do Lord?
Why can I not be like someone else?
Like the woman in the church,
Strong in faith, full of character,
Glows with the light of Your love,
Always smiling, always giving.
Why can I not be like the rich man?
Having a home of my own,
Wealth enough as not to worry,
To provide for my children the things they deserve.
Why can I not be like the lady at the shop?
Physically beautiful, energetic and graceful,
No worries about weight issues,
No health issues due to weight.
Why can I not have that dream family?
A family filled with love, always sharing,
Spiritually bound with one another,
Well educated and trouble free.
Lord, these things I continually wish for,
I’ve failed You Lord; 
I do not want to seem selfish,
Nor do I want to feel ungrateful.
But Lord, I ask you why?
Why have you chosen me?
To live the life you’ve presented to me,
This life I feel I cannot live any more.
Day by day, every moment,
My life filled with constant struggles,
The pain and suffering never ending,
A constant battle, never winning,
Climbing to reach You, always falling,
Why Lord, why me?
I am weak and bruised Lord,
My heart is weary,
My body grows more tired each day.
I cry with silent tears as to hide my sorrows.
If this is what I must go through,
Then please help me to understand why.
Please guide me, Lord, show me Your light,
Help me find my way.
Build my character and give me faith.
Help me Lord, to live this life,
This life You have chosen for me.
~AMEN~

irrated skin

selling all my belongings

who got half on this bag
 to get high i look

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

Home

Tears dying on my cheeks
Song ringing in my ears
Sobs still hiccuping in my chest
Eyes still softly leaking tears.
But there will be a happy ending
There will be a brighter day
There will be sunshine on my shoulders
And sweeter things to say. 
I will have a place where I belong
And friends who will keep in touch
I'll have a brighter future
And promises will mean much.
I will somehow make it through this
Even if I have to walk alone
But I'll make it; I'm almost there
Somehow, I'll make it home.

Rain

The harshness of winter has finally past.
Springtime is upon us finally at last.
No more dulldrums of winter to tax my brain,and the season I love the best
espically the rain.

I could sit and watch as the flowers and the trees flurish and bloom,
and I know that because of natures miracles all the colors will be out soon.

Finally I love to walk out ,and look up,and feel the rain trickle on my face,
take off my shoes and socks and jump from puddle to puddle all ove the place.

But at last all good things must come to an end. The sun is coming out and 
gone is the rain, my friend.
As I sit on the porch with the sun glistening in my eyes, I cant help but wonder
how long before the next storm comes by.

Unforgotten -2-

I've captured you from death's snare,
While others were unaware
No more worrying,
You are unforgotten

You are alive
Others deny it and leave the truth behind
Well, I most certainly know...
I will not end up in ruin

Instead, I'll remain loyal to you
because you are an unforgotten memory that changed my cruel ways
Straightening up my choices,
leading me to an easing and most pleasing place

Well...I certainly know, without a doubt, you are unforgotten
in my memory and best of all...in God's loving heart
You are forgiven in your trespassing mind that stumbles in repetitive sin 
 
You are an unforgotten cure to my throbbing pain
You're making me obsessive to you...sincerely insane

Though you're quite the catch 
in my sealed-up memory
You will remain
in a foolish mind 
fiddling around in flattering aspiration

You are unforgotten
In my flattered memory,
You are unforgotten 

You are a cure to my whole entire life,
unforgotten drug of mine

What I Call Home

Brought in close by those I love,
     during greatest times of need.
Home is not a place, but a feeling.
Surrounded by tender family and good
    friends, even if far apart.
I am comforted by their love.
Strengthened by the peacefulness.
A resting place from the turmoil of worlds.
That is what I call home.

Everlasting Arms

Verse 1

His charm
No harms

Don't be alarmed 
When your just resting 
Just resting in those

Everlasting arms

Verse 2

Now hold me tight
All through the night

for I wanna feel this delight
even when your out of my sight
for I'm leaning on those arms just slight

Just slight on those
everlasting arms
tonight

Verse 3

let me dream of this day
when you come and sweep me away

for I'll only say
this is how I want it to stay

In those
In those
 

everlasting arms
everlasting arms
Of our Lord's sway

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

Can I Really Give You The World Part 2

Chorus-You said Im always on the road always on the go
Said I need to spend time with you
Instead of making me seem like Im running on the low
You wanna put the ring on my finger and make me your wife
You want me to give you my life
But Can I really give you the world

Verse 1-I can remember very first time we saw each other
Back in high school and we still together
Fell in love with each other 
Looking at you made me reminice on the love we shared
I know that both of us really cared
Come on baby dont talk our love away
Things would get better I even send you letters
Just to let you know im still lovin you
Now you think about that and Im going to let you
Aint nothing gon change without me being here with you
So here I am there you are 
Thats where I want you to stand
By me like we were cause aint nothing going to change

Chorus-You said Im always on the road always on the go
Said I need to spend time with you
Instead of making me seem like Im running on the low
You wanna put the ring on my finger and make me your wife
You want me to give you my life
Look I will just be your wife and live as a family
But I can't really give you the world

Man Enough To Be Your Baby

Woke up
               Wanted to cry a rain
                              After a cloudy mind
                                      Found the time
                                                    To stake a claim
                                                             On a forecasted brainstorm
I heard the winds just a singing
    So suddenly 
                  A lovely prison song
                                   While I smiled
                                              Proud to be in the custody
                                                          Of my woman's arms
                                                                Cradeled and eased
                                                                    In her sleepless breeze
Slumbered
                     In the sheer comfort
                                                   Of she
                                                          It's just got to be man!
I believe it
   That this right here
            Is the strongest weakness
                 Known to anything 
                                That has had
                                              The priveledge
                                     Of breathing
                                           Frankly I'm just
                                                        Speaking of
That greater love that knows how to prevail
     That in which way after you've fell
The goodness keeps you on falling
          Dig what I'm talking?  Maybe.................

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

I know those three little words
that you want me to say to you

I know those three little words
they are, "I love you"

YOU

Verse 1:
You're the first one that cared
You showed me the way
Now, I'm no longer scared
Yeah, today's a new day
You've taken me in
And shown me what's right
You've become my best friend
You've shown me the light

Chorus:
When will others see Your presence?
When will others sing Your glory?
When will others want to hear
All about Your life story?

Verse 2:
Lord, You've been through it all
Both through gain and through loss
And I'll Never forget
Why You died on that cross
Lord, You are the Truth
So, there's no need to hide
I know I can go to You
And into You I can confide

Chorus:
Oh, Lord I see Your Presence
And I will always sing Your glory
And I will tell others
All about Your life story

Verse 3:
Oh, I love You so much
And it kills me to see
How we become so obsessed
In what others want us to be
Oh, You're in my heart
You're in the depths of my soul
You've been there from the start
And it's now that I know

Chorus:
Lord, You are present
You will Always have the glory
And others Need to know
All about Your life story

For You

Look all around and see that the clouds are casting their shadows for you.
I swear up and down that the skies and the waters gave your eyes that sad blue.

Because the wonderful earth you view, has always and still will do,
 all it's beautiful works for you.

Look up today, yes look up and say that the world does turn for you.
I say that the rain, the wind, and the plains perform their art for you too.

Because the precious earth you view, has always and still will do,
all it's marvelous works for you.

How Beautiful Is Our God

How beautiful is our God... 
And I shall praise him greatly!
His presence has blessed me 
and filled my life completely,

In Mt. Zion, he's to be praised... 
in the beauty of his holiness.
He's more than worthy of praise,
 in his glory and righteousness.

The joy of the earth...  
and beautiful is the situation...
To all of mankind... He's extended 
mercy and salvation.

He is known in high places as a
 God of refuge and shelter.
I will shout of his praise...
 there's no reason to whisper.
 
He is our God, and forever 
and ever, he shall reign.
He's is worthy of all praise... 
that is due to his name!

He shall lead and guide me
 from birth until death.
And his praise shall continually 
be on my breath.

Thanks be to God for 
everything he has done!
And  thanks to him 
for sending Jesus... HIS son!

He gives everlasting water 
that never shall run dry.
It is no secret how much
 he loves you and I!

If Only

If only there was 
Zero gravity,
So I'd leap 
Ever so happily.

If only I could defy
Then I would jump on up
And high, oh so high,
Into the nighttime sky.

I glance up, 
Seeing beyond the atmosphere.
Standing here,
Viewing a crescent moon.

If only I could fly,
I would soon open my wings
And bring myself to go away,
Away from the earthly ground.

If only all people
Could reach up and touch the moon.
Its light so bright,
Oh how I wonder how it glows.

I again gaze with my eyes
And ponder how might all 
Shall one day go.
Yet it seems we see it
As only a dream.

Path of Life

There’s nobody left that can feel the tide
As the world draws a breath and reshapes our minds
Nothing to see when we try to hide
Because nothing will be if we close our eyes

Not much to say when there’s nothing left
Now we’re talking away as the shadows set 
Where we all pretend that we have our breath
And we decide that none of us knows what’s best

There’s nobody left that can hold their path
Since the fear decided that it would last
Nothing to come if we hold what’s passed
Because nothing can grow when we’re falling back

So much to be when we turn away
Becoming much more to create the day
Where everyone knows that we must repave
The path we deceived at the sight of pain

There is only us and what we create
As the earth sings the song of its timely fate
Reflecting a message that most sedate
And creating the pain that we have of late

The circle of truth that we have deprived
From ourselves feeding pain as we bring the night
There is only us and what we decide
And waking to that is the path of life


Details | Lyric | |

Its A Brand New Day

Its a brand new day,
A brand new week,
I am filled with joy
For today is a new start.
I have made the choice
to do what pleases me
not what pleases my friends
but what pleases me 
but most important what pleases my God!
I have chosen to make changes
to love my family more,
to bring one another closer,
to do my best in all that I do,
to hold my head high,
to strengthen my faith,
and to praise my Lord for all He has given me.
What ever trials come my way.
what ever pain I feel today,
I will make the choice to move forward
and to use each situation as a life lesson
for this is the only way I know I can have
Peace, Joy, Love, and Understanding.
Follow me and you too will find joy!

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

To Run This Race


Life has it's share of ups and downs,
And times of uncertainty too.
But know that God the Almighty one is always 
there for you.

He'll give you zeal and power, to run this
Christian race.
But endurance comes with the reception of God's
amazing grace.

His grace is all sufficient, abundant in 
blessings too.
Our Father in Heaven shows compassion, giving
added strength anew.

So run this race with patience, on Jesus you
can depend.
Just trust, believe, have faith in Him.
He'll see you through 'til the end.

LIVING

You know that you are living, with the sun upon your face....
And as you feel all the love, within his sweet embrace,
You know that you are living, as your eyes meet from afar...
as he puts his lips to yours, and all you see is stars,
You know that you are living, when its time for him to go....
Realizing just before he leaves, you already miss him so,
You know that you are living, with all the years gone by....
The struggles all along the way, were worth all the tries,
WE KNEW THAT WE WERE LIVING, as the years have turned us grey...
We would not change a single thing, not one single day!

was going no where, I used to
think I was waisting my time....
Until one day I prayed, he came
to me in a dream, at first I was afraid,
not anymore, here is somthing that I know.
His love is never ending, it will last forever,
He will never turn his back on me, he will
never let me down, no matter how many times
I fall, he will never let me drown. His love is
never ending, He is full of sweet kindness mercy,
His love is never ending.  His love will never end.

Taking Pictures in the Rain

Would I look insane
If I took pictures in the rain?
My face would be…sponging wet 
My camera would be slippery I bet

Would I be in danger
If I took photos of a passerby and a stranger?
My reputation would probably be out of shape
My own skin would turn a odd shade…just like the clouds—covered by a foggy cape

It would be a whole new adventure
If I drive that damp road of cement…what would occur?
My uncertainty leads to a mysterious freeway…we are all along for the ride
We’ll still be together like some married couple—well, I’ll always stay by their side

Would we be in danger
If I took photos of this horrifying recollection?
Will it drive my dad to anger?
My safety is hanging on its last seat belt; I’ll never forget this risky exploration

Would I be the one to blame
If I took pictures of the rain’s appalling flame? 
My face is showered with bogging rain and blurred fog
My curiosity increases the rainstorm and I flash the driver to create a direction’s clog

When I Sing

When I sing 
I sing for Him

When I rise
I rise for Him

When I bow
I bow for Him

When I seek 
I seek for Him

When I ask
I ask for Him

When I shine
I shine for Him

When I crumble
I crumble for Him

When I yearn
I yearn for Him

I Am

I am me and I am always true to me.
I wonder do we have a meaning in life?
I hear the hearts of people making a beat in this world.
I see the thoughts of people always changing.
I want to knoew am I the best I can be?

I pretend to always be cool.
I feel like I am always one out of many.
I touch the moon, sun and stars.
I worry that the children of this world will never see a pure sky.
I cry when I see someone inflicted in pain.

I am me and I am always true to me.

I understand that the world is always changing.
I say that one day it will be good again.
I dream that the people of this world will try to do good in this dry planet.
I try to prevent harm to others.
I hope that one day it will be good again.

I am me and I am always true to me.

Up from the water

Now i've come up from the water,
to follow my father,
where he'll lead me I don't know?
But I know if I stay beside him,
I'll stay away from all sin,
I'll follow wherever he goes.
The path he takes me today,
I shall not stray,
for I know right from wrong.
I'll honor him before my friends,
until the end,
whether my life is short or long.
If you'd like to repent your sins,
and never do them again,
then follow me down to the water.
There you shall be reborn,
in the sight of our Lord,
and then together we'll follow our father.

I'm Your Blues Man

I'm on stage
Sweating
Voice tonging the drums
My screams are performing porn with the horns
Sexing the strings
Necking the rhythm section
Grooving on the spot
Getting hotter than hot
Rolling my hips while the lights are on top of me
Snapping my fingers like a deep fryer be poppin' grease

All the fellas wanna shake my hand
All the ladies want to be in my palm like a fortune teller's grammar
The smoke filled room is filled with chairs but everbody just choose to stand up
Tapping their feet
Clapping their hands after they've captured the beat

 FEELING GOOD!!!
That i'm a man that just so happens to understand
That the boss been working you a little too hard
Or that I done went through too much hell to find heaven in you
I don't mind turning you a-loose
But I just can't let ya get too far
Don't be nervous
Just let
Go of your worries
Cause they don't make good pets
And you can never tell when and if they're coming back again
But you know that the good times will just pick up and go
I don't need to see no scholars or doctors when I'm running a fever with a sore 
throat
All I need is a bottle of vodka or gin and peppermint for the common cold
Either I'm not your preacher,teacher,doctor,or healer or I'm all of the above

Turn on your radio,play a tape,spin a record,put on a cd,turn on your TV or
You might be lucky enough to come and see me down at the club
 HEy hEy, 
                              "I'm Your Blues Man"

Recalling Existence

Reason regrets residual rights
After all things are undone
Stuck in a hole of ancient plight
Even beneath the sleepless sun

What is a war when we have won
Just to recall displaced dead truths?
What is the cost when chaos comes
When such empty loss is all it proves?

Killing what comes while children cry
Commanding the shadows of our lie
Dividing the vision that we’re one
The fragments misplaced; the mirror’s gone

Reason recalls revealing rays
The light was there beyond the night
All that we need is within the day
The truth in our cycle granting sight

Endless examining of the end
The powerful spiral of all pain
Victims of self this chaos rends
Collecting the fragments that remain

Nothing is dead while I still breathe
Breathing alone I’m on my knees
Before the love in all I see
Behind the pain that will deceive

Nothing is lost, I’m not alone
Everything gone has come and shown
That every regret has now atoned
For the universe is and I have grown

Fantastic Flight - Chapter 3 - Treading on Hopeful Lane

(V.4 continued) There’s a joyful, wonderful future in store, despite this bittersweet sentiment
Brewing inside of me…these waves of emotions
Brew inside of me…ignore the ocean of commotions 
You’re my one and only awesome devotion
We can dance in this trance with the waves of majestic motion 
Radiant reveries swarm us like bees, hovering around the bee hive
Thank God that you and I are meant to be with each other – we are at ease and alive! 

*chorus*

The mountain winds are howling its stormy resentment
The snow glitters on the triumphant mountains…
I’ve tried to conceal these feelings of discontent
My eyes are spraying with tears of sorrow – weep no more, sad fountains
Don’t push me to the limits – I breathe in and out
I let go of my anxiety and trade it with prosperity– 
I’m one with the passionate, frozen desires in my heart 
I’m strong like Sampson in the bible – 
Let the light of day unfreeze my heart’s agony and avarice
I don’t want to believe in those silly allegories…
Am I your living sacrifice?
My heart is as cold as ice…I need to take His advice!
I have faced reality alone before
Is this real or is this a myth? There’s more land to explore!

(V.5) I know things aren’t black and white…
It won’t be for a while unfortunately
Until we make some rearrangements
Complete the act of change, 
Which is a challenging chore…what are you waiting for?
Make a chance that will change the world more and more!
Change is a challenging chore 
It’s hard to get out my comfort zone
I groan, for I’m left on my own…
Without you, the loneliness won’t leave me alone
The solitude grows colder…
I’m as dry and feeble as a bone 
The weeping of a thousand people 
Sounds like thousands of infants, 
Lament and discontent makes our heart 
Make grief-stricken, awful oaths
Serene Shores wash away the woeful afflictions 
That I’ve been through for many a year – 
Will you please forgive my disgraceful sins? Can you burn its evidence to the ground?
Those sins have been driving me insane . . . making me misery-bound!
And I’m still waiting for His healing rain   = - )
To erase the pangs of the past pains – I’m driving on a hopeful lane!

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

Its Battles of Braves and Soldiers – Both Grim Reapers
Can’t Forget… We ‘Are’ Our Brother’s Keeper…

Pollution and Persecution… Its Time To Cure It
End Our Journey On The Trail of Tears

For Every Human Birth… Has Worth
         As A Blood – Brother

For Those Killed and Blood Spilled
         The Ground Cries
Soaks The Dust… And Curses Us
         When A Brother Dies…

Until I'm touched

Poverty striken
starving in the night
history critical to me 
until I lose sight
let me embrace your heart
under starlit engagement 
undisarrayed gorgeous gaze 
holding our love sacred 
through songfelt dismay
charismatic glance 
displayed 
though were in pain
today 
remain humane 
don't judge the Lord
until I'm touched 
love cry no more

Live It Out

Everyone lives a life
  a lie, a secret
Its best to be a believer that life is not a fairy tale
  I hear her crying
I see her falling
  I tried to lift her up
Instead of getting hurt
  Life is hard but she was almost rape by her boyfriend
Thank God he was there
  and really was with her
Still time after time
  She knew it was a crime
And she till stayed until
  he start putting his hands on her
She woke up to an abusive matter 
  Only way to escape was 
to leave her boyfriend over the phone
  You got to live it out

Come on listen
  pay attention
Everyone want their voices 
  to be heard
Everyone knows we live a 
  teary eyed world
Ain't nobody ever satisfied
  Until they see someone shot up
Life may be hard
  but will you be the one to make that change
Don't fade out
  Be strong
hold on, if we do
  We got to live it out

I wanna live my life to its fulliest
  Some people say I wanna live right
But others make me do wrong
  Cut the lying, cut the schezzing, the breakhearts of cheating
Only you live for you
  And I live for me
Can't nobody control you 
  Can't nobody live for you
You make your own decisions
  Whether right or wrong
Don't mean you have to put one down
  Live life as its your last day
Cause your time could be today
  So live it out

You reach, I teach

You're drowning in your fear and it cuts deep into me but i won't bleed.
 Looking into your eyes i have seen the trepadation materializing for weeks. 
You won't even utter a whisper, you fall so quickly to your knees and just look up at me. 
I place my hand on your cheek. your skin so soft, so delicate, but so cold. 
You can't help the cards that you've been dealt, but now isn't the time to fold! 
Are you alive or are you falling asleep? 
Get off of your bruised knees. 
Don't let a single tear fall down your cheek. 
Thoughts surface into my mind, but I have never thought that you were weak.
Lift yourself from this wreck, step up to the deck. 
This is not your last night. 
These are precious moments of your life. 
So carry on my darling, I'll always be on your side. 
From dusk till the break of dawn. 
Your heart shows scars, but you are strong. 
You taught me how to reach the stars, now I teach you to believe that you belong. 
Your purpose in this life is now yours to palm.


Details | Lyric | |

What now?

Every time I see you, it makes me feel scared
To be truthful I don't know why, your no threat to me
And yet you hold my heart within your hands
Making little cuts with every word you speak

You don't know how much it hurts, you don't care
You never cared, with each word a deeper cut is formed
Now you look at me as if I was never yours, like I mean nothing at all
Some man you are, to treat me like this, like im lower then dirt

I only have one question left, what did I ever to do you
I never cheated, always true to you, I made no lies, no sin committed
Just tell me what I did to make you treat me like this
You remind me of the ocean waves, always beating on the rocks

Is that all you see me as, a pebble in your shoe?
For what reason have I given to you, for you to be this way
All I ever did was loved you, and you just push me away
Don't you remember you’re the one who said "I love you", first?

How could you forget, with all the good times we had
You act as if it was all a dream, and who knows now, maybe it was
The only thing I really know now is, Im done waiting for you to change
I will not stand here and be mistreated, like a dog with no home

You may always have my heart,
But you will never hold me in your arms again
I will not put myself through this again
You no long me anything to me

I hope one day you will feel this pain
But until that day, I hope you think of me and cry
Cry about all the pain you caused 
The things I gave up for you, how all you did was push away

It’s because of you that I’ve changed and all can see
Im not the same since the day I said I do, and Now I will be
Nor will I ever know how things could have been

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

Quater Life B.C

I've spent a life time
basking in the shadows of turpitude
finding warmth in the coolness of night
where feeling sorry for myself
became the deterrent from my own absurdities
I searched for strength amongst the struggle
and saught relief through self mutilation
but all I found were broken images 
of what I've dreamt myself to be
So I surrendered my life
wiped my eyes
cleaned up my arms
and began reconstructing my structure
I no longer seek shelter in solacement
and the chains that once bound me
no longer tie me into darkness
'for you've been defeated 
and I've been forgiven
and with the quater mark 
of my life vastly approaching
I will compliment my saviours success
by living!


Details | Lyric | |

When I became first aware

Your presents I felt, yet without so much a trace
Like how it feels to be loved, without being touched or embraced  
Your distant; yet close to me, at any given day
The guidance you have shown me, at times I go astray 
I never really noticed or thought about you near
To say the least I never knew better, than to ask if you cared
All I know is how I feel to know, I will  never be alone
For now I know the thought of you is real and from which I have grown
The day I turned my life around and called to you through prayer
My eyes were opened, my purpose revealed
The day I shed a tear

When I became first aware

Echoes of the Canyon

They say that she is crazy 
   talking to the canyon; 
Listening to the voices 
   that echo from the rocks. 
She knows that they are out there, 
   the spirits of the Ancients, 
And the moon, it makes her restless 
   as it lights the path she walks. 
 
The Storykeeper told her 
   the water there flows crimson; 
That the grass for the ponies, 
   is lush and green and tall. 
Among the stalks of sky-blue corn, 
   medicine drums are calling; 
The Old Ones shadow-dancing 
   as the twilight starts to fall. 
 
So she burns a little sage 
   on a fire made of cedar; 
Sending prayers out to them 
   in a shower of sparks and smoke. 
The flames bid her welcome 
   into the Sacred Circle; 
Her flute repeating softly, 
   the promises that he spoke. 
 
For her sacrifice and faith 
   the Old Ones send a message; 
A hawk dips down and beckons 
   to follow ever high. 
The path is steep and rocky, 
   but she just keeps on climbing; 
Waiting for the moment 
   when she’ll be allowed to fly. 

One day, she simply disappeared. 
   I like to think she found it; 
That emerald endless valley 
   where the Spirit Dancers dwell. 
The only question left... 
   do we deserve to go there? 
I guess that’s just a story 
   that only time can tell. 
 
So, will they think I’m crazy 
   talking to the canyon? 
Listening for her voice 
   to echo from the stones... 
Their thoughts do not concern me 
   in my quest for the Great Forever; 
Wandering the Crimson Canyon trails, 
   searching for my home. 
 
*With love to TR...who set my feet back upon the good road.

You know

It's not something you can touch, 
yet I'm always feeling it everywhere.
It's not something you can see, 
and yet my senses are indulged to their max.
It's not something you can smell or taste,
nor hear, nor grow.
It's just there, everywhere.
It's not something you can buy,
or steal, or get given as a gift.
And its not something that can get stolen, broken or lost.
Well maybe lost, but it seems to always find its way back.
It doesn't fall form the sky,
nor get dug from the earth, 
or even plucked from a tree.
It's just everywhere.
It's not anything you think it is.
It's just you and me.
I know what it is, 
but you don't, you won't,
not until you understand 
how much you mean to me.
Not until you can feel it,
see it, taste it, hear it and
smell it all at once.
You have to engulf yourself in it.
Unleash your senses,
and be one with it as I have.
The only way you'll ever understand
is if you were to take my place,
cry like me, laugh like me, play like me,
be me, love me.
Love me.
As I do you, then you will understand.
And I will be you,
run like you, ride like you,
smile like you, kiss like you, 
love like you, love you.
Love all of you.
And then perhaps I will
understand better,
why only we have this, 
this... connection.
A spiritual, sensual, mental
and physical attraction.
Something that blossoms and develops the senses so-
should be illegal, 
or perhaps the law too
understands what it
means to love.
To lose yourself in the moment,
feelings and thoughts, and hopes and dreams,
so massive in their entirety,
so powerful and pure they could condemn God
to the firey pits of hell as it were.
So condemn us,
We are no more God than
anyone else in this unruly world,
but we have got one truly unholy
attribute that would make 
even the big man himself envious.
We have us,
I have you, 
and you have me.
Always and forever, 
just you and me.
You know.

That's One

This life is the only one I've got
One chance to get it right or flop.
No one telling me what to do when I mess up.
Just me, to dust off when it's done.
With no one next to me, I'm just one
With one love, one prayer, one fun.
No stranger's going to steal my sun.
I've got my life and my love.
That's one.
 
No space greater than that between the sudden urge and common sense.
Once I figured it out, I haven't been the same since.
I figure either way, I won't let it get me stressed.
After all, my life is too
Blessed.
That's two.
 
No one can take this love from me.
No one can turn my potential into actuality.
No one can finally
Make my eyes open to see
The difference between
What is said and what you mean,
Except me.
That's three.
 
A breakthrough from the life that never was
Is finally making sense to me because
I know that this was given from above,
And without Him there's no point in looking up,
Because He saved me with His only son,
And showed me true unconditional love.
That's the one.

In My Life - We Both Lack Sunshine

I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with 
me
I’m fearless to say that I used to bleed out remorse
Before I met you…of course
I used to cry myself asleep because I felt so alone
Before I met you, I was on my own

V.6: What’s baby blue with glee? – The sky!
We welcome the sun to shine upon you and I 
I spot you, dancing freely – I don’t want to lose you just 
because we were pushing each other’s buttons and 
devouring strife
I see you in the corner of my eye
You are strong to stay strong when you met eye to 
eye with your struggles in life
I need you to let go of guilt and fly

*chorus* I never have the strength and the energy to say that you saved me from the death’s snare But, I must tell you someday, so that you’re aware That you are someone special in my heart – I can’t conceal the truth of what I feel for you deep inside In my life, in my life, I’m still stuck in the solitary cave In my life, in my life, I thought I wasn’t at all brave I was caved in by the cravings of my heart The darkness once ripped me apart But, you repaired me and I recovered pretty fast So, please listen up! I must tell you about my good and bad past Fear doesn’t exist here Get a grip on the rope of hope All anxieties are gone We dream on like daydreamers, awaiting another great, delight-illuminated dawn
I’ll love you until my life is no more I’ll love you, even if you have strayed into the darkness I love you from the bottom of the ocean to the heavens above I’ll love you – I won’t get over you and you’re my love at first sight – you were and still are a dazzling, surreal sight – you kiss me and I’m overwhelmed with passionate bliss I will love you if you would step out of the abyss with me I will love you if you can be so kind and participate with me as I step out of the abyss - you're down? Wipe away that frown and embrace sunlit glee! Be happy!

Jesus Take The Wheel

Jesus take the wheel 
This road I'm traveling 
Winding and so long. 
So many detours, so many bumps; 
Like the trials of my life 
The burdens and sorrows I bare. 
I am worn, I am weary, 
I need to rest Lord, help me now. 
Jesus take the wheel 
You are my guide; 
Help me to travel the road You desire, 
That I may leave my cares at Your side. 
Take my life and hear me cry, 
Guide me to that haven of rest 
Where my sorrows turn to joy, 
My tears to the water I thirst for. 
Jesus take the Wheel 
And lead me home.

Just Beyond the City Limits

Along an old country path,
Where carriages used to pull their goods
To out-of-town places -
Where grass grows down the centre line;
I walk along the memory looking into faded mist;
Not sure where the road leads -
Like a future yet to be unfolded,
When the spirit of the country comes to greet me 
In it’s greying grace and beauty. 
She gallops just beyond the haunting ridge -
Pure freedom bellows from her lips,
As she dances with the tall grass in a graceful gait,
Into the misty past just beyond the makeshift fence,
As crickets gently play their fiddles.
A sweetbread wind caresses my nostrils,
Bringing me to a stand-still -
I close my eyes and feel the essence all around me;
The wind rustles the tall grass in the field,
So many crickets - playing their tune,
A humble love fills me to over-flowing
And I find myself crying for the rest of us,
Who pine for a life worth living in the city streets -
Desperate to live up to unrealistic goals;
When just beyond the city limits -
Is a place of humble beauty and tradition
A tradition we now seriously lack.
Our roots, our earth, our humanity;
Waits for us where grass grows down the centre line.

We once were together as one

We once were together as one
                    by
                Garrick

So tell me now where did you go
That dark night of sorrow and of plight
Your heart for me you left behind
Passing with harrow harsh pain

So deep inside a cold blade does twist
Did my blood cause your flight
Your heart from me you took away
Departing in haste, a hallow agony

We once were one, far from all fear
Then walked with cheer through trouble always near
My heart was yours, you left anyway
Vanished in heated hot blood boiling

But back you came, together again
Two travelers in a strange lit dream
Our hearts no claim, one just the same
Embarked in hope, hurling through some unrequited life

Love's Christmas

Bring in the tree, shake off its boughs,
Discuss with friends the whys and hows
Of existence as you trim away,
Sharing together the dreams of the day.

As you carry the children off to bed,
Spare a thought for the Child
In the cattle shed -
For one good man, who wept and bled
For the sake of a better world.

So by all that's fine and sacred then,
Have a care for the hearts of fellow men,
For families, friends and all the others
Since beneath the skin, we all are brothers. 
Deep in our souls we know this to be true,
Be we Christian, Moslem, Buddhist, Jew.

We can be our own saviours,
If only we wish
To mature our behaviors,
Hoping only for this:
To subdue the beasts that lie between us,
To make it this once, Love's Christmas,
For the sake of a better world.

Background Noises

Listlessly watching tonelessly seeing 
Hands twisted into the harmony of defeat 
Minds growing with the molds of the unfolding 
Of the sonnet of fate and its moments of discreet 
Senses drowning into the pit of your false confidence 
The urgent beating of a broken heart 
Cascading velvet shuddering under the weight of the wind 
Twirling among the blackness of this art 
Tapping awareness in the annoying glare of an eye 
Simple caress in the world in which you try 
Little baby longing for its mother 
Or the mournful wail of a wolf before it dies 
You hear them everywhere, you cannot escape them 
They are your leeches that haunt your every thought and dream 
It is almost impossible to win against such renewing, 
of a busted mind mourning to its very last frail seam

Fist of Determination

Don’t you get in my way!
And don’t you dare try to stop me now…
Because if you do, I shall warn you
That you’ll be falling right before me…

As the sun rises, I am ready to fight
I feel this energy within me begin to escalate
And manifest itself into a spirit! This is great!
These fists of mine will tackles anything and crush
All those who get in my way!

Don’t you get in my way!
And don’t you dare try to stop me now!
Because if you do, I shall warn you
That you’ll be falling right before me!

As the moon continues to rise through the night
This spirit within me beckons to try out
These fists of mine right now! I feel it!
It is guiding me down a path that I
Must see to the very end!

Don’t you get in my way!
And don’t you dare try to stop me now!
Because if you do, I shall warn you
That you’ll be falling right before me!

As the sun rises…
As the moon rises…
These fists of mine will tackle anything and crush
All those who get in my way!

Don’t you get in my way!
And don’t you dare try to stop me now!
Because if you do, I shall warn you
That you’ll be falling right before me!

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.

When Dreams Can Come True

This Wandering Imagination
Leaves Nothing As It Seems
When Hopes Feel So Distant
Left Trapped In My Dreams
My Lone Heart Is Lost
In Times So Uncertain
My Faithless Eyes Lose Sight
Blinded By The Curtain

Life Loses All Value
When Truth Is Hard To Obtain
The Past Long Faded
And Scars Are All That Remain
Soullessly I Wander
Through Fields So Grim
Skies Left Overcast 
And The Sunlight Is Dim

Moments To Recollect
For Mistakes I've Made
Desperate For Closure
So The Ill Will Can Fade
Skies Slowly Clearing
And Sunlight Breaks Through
A Life So Ever-changing
When Dreams Can Come True

A Breathless Pause

The perfect passion, fuelled by each pause
A place where nothing can really be lost
Another distance, another star gone
Even with nothing I know I belong

Pretty colours, lovely disease
Where overcoming just plants more trees
Dreaming angel, more waking rage
Where awakening love will salvage my days

The purest rainfall, as deadly as hate
Bested only by fearing the taste
The silence holds me, but I don’t mind
Expressing joy will absolve what’s inside

People empty, their hearts trapped in snow
Nothing lost with nothing to show
A poisoned answer, the question unknown
But survive the void and we can still grow

The perfect sunrise, the truest of nights
Spinning deeper with each inner fight
The purest darkness, dissolved by the light
A breathless pause that fills me with sight

Big Timer


I’m a big timer 
No one out there finer
I’m making big cheese.
So get on your knees
And bow down to me.
I’m the best a big timer.

No one out there finer.
Don’t hate.
Congratulate,
The big cheese.
Big timer,
With dollars to the ceiling.

Don’t hate .
Congratulate.
You should’ve been working hard,
With me.
Instead of hardly working.

I’m reaping,
From the working,
While you been jerking,
Who’s the big timer?
I am God’s creation,
Working in His will,
For my life.
Say it once.
Say it twice.
No one’s finer.

I’m an original 
From the rack
Of the universe’s best designer
God’s child
Not to be cloned
Or faked by any of Satan’s wile
No one’s finer.
I’m a big timer.

My Prayer

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the Lord I have found my peace, and through Him
My one acrimonious release, and furthermore He is

Glory be to my mighty King, and once more and 
Moreover, He has held me in His favor and for His Glory

His mercy is just the thing, as my heart to him does sing

My better favor it is the greatest gift in measure and 
as well for me and mine alone, my very treasure yes that
Of His saving grace, and as I rest up under the Strength
and Power of the Masters wing, for Him alone
My heart does sing, Glory, Glory, Glory,
Glory be to my mighty King.

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

Sing Unto The Lord

Sing unto the Lord!  All the earth

 and every nation!

Proclaim each day the wonders

 of his salvation!



Declare his glory among all

 of the heathen…

His wondrous works shout

from beneath them!



Great is our God and so greatly

 to be praised!

He is to be feared and honored

 above all gods displayed.



All of man’s gods are empty and false idols.

Our God created the heavens. 

His word is in our bibles.



Glory and honor are in 

God’s divine presence.

Strength and honor reveal

 his magnificence!



Give unto the lord all you

 people and rejoice!

Giving him glory and honor. 

 As we lift up our voice.



I shall give the Lord the glory and 

worship his name…

The beauty of his holiness…  I seek to obtain!



Our God is awesome and he

 reigns supreme…

He is our righteousness..    Our everything!



YOU are my God, whom I shall 

forever love so dear.

And I anxiously wait for that day

you shall appear!

I Will Survive

Why do I feel sad?
At times I’m filled with anger,
Depression fills my heart,
Fear fills my mind,
Worry surrounds me.
I search for joy,
I long for peace,
I look for comfort,
I need to feel love.
Seems when I move forward
Something happens,
Something changes
Sends me backwards.
I try to trust my Father,
His plan for me,
I try to believe.
But then things happen
I do not understand.
Then I fall and fear overcomes me.
I run, afraid, angry.
I cannot find my way,
His path for me I am lost on.
I call out, “Help me Lord!”
Then He comes to me
His hands, they reach down to me.
He picks me up, carries me back,
Back to the path I belong.
Look to Him
Keep my eyes on Him,
Hold His hand.
With Him I shall stand,
What ever shall befall me,
Will not harm me.
I will survive!

With a Shout!

With a shout!
At the last trump
The archangel's
Voice shall be heard
For the Lord 
Himself shall come
So encourage
All with these words!  (Chorus)

If we believe that Jesus died
And in three days He rose again
Then we believe that God will bring
With Christ those who now sleep in Him

For if only in this life we have hope in Jesus Christ
We would be the most miserable of men 
But Jesus is the Resurrection and He's the Life
Being buried with Him we shall rise again

(Chorus)

We who are alive and in Jesus still abides
Won't precede those who are asleep in Him 
So the dead in Christ first shall arise  
Then we who remain shall be caught up with them

For we all shall not sleep, but we all shall be changed
Into a being and a likeness of the Lord
When we meet Him face to face in the clouds in the air
We shall be with Him always and evermore

My Sweetest Escape

In my life and times
been betrayed and been lied to
used everything just to get me 
by the nights, that were so cold
just wanted to let go, and fade away
looking for that sweet escape, but
always thinking maybe im to late.

And ive done things that im not proud of
no im far from an angel, but did i really deserve
those i cared for to let me down again?
What's so wrong with wanting a family?
They just wanted to break me through to 
the skin. Leave me here just like the animal
you treated me like to begin with. 
Seems like this might be my fate.

All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who would look me in the face
Someone who would understand that my plan
was to get away from this place.
All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who could look me in the face
Someone who would understand that where i am
bad memories are hard to erase.
All i need is your Sweetest Escape.

People used to break me down, not with
fists but with there words
till i was lying ill, fatally bleeding 
unto the floor.
But as soon as you entered my life
everything changed, and nothing
felt painful anymore. As you took my
hand, and led me out of darknesses
door.

And with you there's finally hope
a new place i know i can cope
and be here, not scared of being
pushed back down, broken down
to my core.
And i know you'd never hurt me
because i know that's just not you
In the darkness i just couldn't see
until the love you shined led me
right to you.

All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who would look me in the face
Someone who would understand that my plan
was to get away from this place.
All my life i always wanted to feel the sweetest escape
in the arms of someone who could look me in the face
Someone who would understand that where i am
bad memories are hard to erase.
All i need is your Sweetest Escape.

A Hurried Life

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done,
Do you lie in your bed,
With the next hundred chores,
Running through your head?

You'd better slow down!
Don't dance so fast!
Time is short!
The music wont last!

Ever told your child,
“We'll do it tomorrow.”
And in your haste not see their sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die,
Because you never had time,
To call and say “Hi!”

You'd better slow down!
Don't dance so fast!
Time is short!
The music wont last!

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry throughout your day, 
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away....!!!!

Life is not a race!
Do take it slower!
Hear the music!
Before the song is over!!!!

Imperfect

I'm nowhere near perfect
My hair doesn't curl, isn't straight
I live for my straightener, 
But for the heat, it makes me wait.
I have a big mouth
Lots of drama and enemies
But I know how to have fun
And I make tons of memories.
I fall for guys easily
And let them break my heart
I get blinded by so-called "love"
So much, it tears me apart.
My friends and I don't always get along
About stupid stuff, we fight
I have good days, and, like everyone else,
I have days where nothing goes right.
I have memories of pain
I wish I could forget
I have said words, mean words,
That I've grown to really regret.
I'm vulnerable to believing lies
I hope, someday, I won't need a fake smile
I hope that, eventually, I'll be who I want to
Even though it'll take a while.
I make up excuses for everything
A lot of times, like to class, I am late
I do kind of risky and crazy stuff
But the laughter sure is great.
I'm nowhere near perfect
Far from that "ideal" target
But hey, that's life, you live and love
And eventually, you learn from it.
The good times count for everything
And nothing counts for the bad
We all have our ups and downs
And our days that make us sad.
We all have our reasons 
To love and to love not
It's worse to have never loved
Than to have loved and lost.
Every kiss counts for something
Even if it's the worst
No one's perfect, really, they're not
So you, for "perfection," do we thirst?
Is there some unseen prize
In the way we all are the same?
'Cause there's only one way for the world to be perfect
But that's not something I want to gain.
When we really take a step back
From all the tabloids and magazines
That push the whole "perfect" attitude
A sigh of relief, can we breathe.
When we walk away from all the rest of the world
And forget about the ideal 
We can see how truly amaing our lives are
And we can begin our own spiel.
Doesn't that sound amazing,
To take total control over our world? 
Well, why on't we try right now?
Let's give "imperfection" a whirl!
I'm not even close to being perfect
I don't know why I wanted to be
"Imperfect" is actually a pretty awesome title
And I'm proud to say it describes me.

for I know lord you are thy healer
who can take it all away
so mama turn your eyes upon jesus

Drifting Off To Sleep

Lying in bed, I close my eyes,
Unable to drift off to sleep;
I rise to open the windows,
Allowing the cool gentle breeze to fill the room.
I lye back down and my mind rushes.
I listen to the night sounds
Soothing my restless mind.
I watch the trees dancing in the wind
Like shadows in the sky,
Mesmerizing my mind.
I hear the chimes play their medleys
As they sway in the wind,
Relaxing my mind.
I smell the night rain
As it gently falls with its pitter patter,
Refreshing my mind.
I softly whisper,
“Thank you Father, I love you”
As I finally drift off to sleep.

In A Panic

Father, it’s me again,
Coming to plead for your mercy,
So much going on,
So much clouding my mind.
I need your help!
My stomach is tied up in knots,
My chest aches with panic
And my head is unable to think.
I worry and I am scared.
What will happen Lord?
What am I to do?
Hear my cry,
And please stand by my side.
I wish to hear good things,
I wish for joy for my family.
Comfort them Father,
Ease their suffering
And give them hope.
We need you Father!
I need you for I am in a panic.
Please Father!

Everywhere I go
Jesus is the one
Speaking louder than before
The words I would say

How He loves

So praise Him in advance
For I just wanna say

How he loves

Just wait and see

While I'm waiting
For a friend like that

There will be a day
All because of Jesus
To bring you back
For you're not alone
So set the world on fire in

How He Loves

My Friend

For Reymond Cruz

So Smooth.
So Fly.
A voice as smooth as the caramel of his skin.
His debonair style, groomed to perfection, makes anyone look good standing 
next to him. 
His knowledge of this legendary, few doubts filtering through his mind.
A vulnerableness deeply hidden in eyes that take all in and pass by nothing.
For those closest, a deep heart full of love and understanding.
Shoulders ready to help carry any burden though it may not be his.
His deep insight on situations far beyond his years.
A laugh quick to be released, though at many times at others expense.
His self confidence ensuring a tough skin, with few knowing the hidden cracks. 
He knows many, but few are true friends who are easily forgiven, always held 
close.
Many trials have formed him into the man he is.
His over protectiveness spreading from family to friends.
Realizations of life's briefness so that pettiness and phoniness is cast away with 
last years styles.
Loyalties abound from him when proven and returned.
Asks for nothing  in return other than basics that should be given and shared.
Respect, understanding, compassion...nothing major and yet all so important.
His readiness to return those things inspiring awe.
There's so many doors laying open before him with opportunities spilling forth.
So rare a find.
Friendship being a blessed thing, and I am blessed to have him.
We go back years, bonds holding tight, strengthened by our talks late at night.
He is my friend, always to be counted on, never want to let him down.

A Story Of Dependance

Don't let me fall.
Don't let me die.
Don't let me crawl.
Don't let me cry.
I need you
To lift me up.
I need you 
Before I give up.

You've held me high
Even when you cried.
You've made me glad
Even when you were upset.
I cannot go on
Living without you.
You are the only one
No one else would ever do.
Don't give up
On me now.
Can't  you live it up
With me now?
With me now . . .

You are my life.
You are my soul.
You are my pride.
You make me whole.
I need you 
To help me through.
I need you
And only you.

You've held me high
Even when you cried.
You've made me glad
Even when you were upset.
I cannot go on
Living without you.
You are the only one
No one else would ever do.
Don't give up
On me now.
Can't  you live it up
With me now?
With me now . . .

Rolling in the laughter of our time.
Wishing that all of you could be mine.
Knowing you are my best friend with no doubt.
Needing you to help me out.

You've held me high
Even when you cried.
You've made me glad
Even when you were upset.
I cannot go on
Living without you.
You are the only one
No one else would ever do.
Don't give up
On me now.
Can't  you live it up
With me now?
With me now . . .

The Fight Within (Beginning)

Shivers of elastic thunder
Settle in and call the drummer
Pain cleanses every doorway
Going on despite what I say

At the mercy of a rhythm
I’ve got no choice, I have to listen
Wearing down my bleeding ears
There’s only hope and all my fears

Bring on the final blow
And when it strikes I’ll finally know
Will I fall and never answer?
Or will I rise and beat this cancer?

Time to summon all I’ve learned
Into the test of what I’ve earned
Time to walk above my demons
And if they stand I know I’ll see them

I’ve felt the draining thunder
I took its strength and replaced the drummer
The real strength is in deciding
Not to drum but to release the dying

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

Super-Plan

Let's throw some junk on a wall
And call it art.
Let's act like we don't think miles
A part.
Let's say that we ain't losin' nothin'
Lookin for somethin'.

I don't wanna be alone no more.
You know how this life 
Is such a bore.
And I think two wrongs can make it
All right
Tonight;
Let's play pretend.

I bet if we fake it
We'll make it
Yiou be a different boy
I'll be a different girl
We'll live in a different world
Together, 'til the end.
Let's play pretend.

I'd say
The real world's getting old
(Pretty damn fast, too)
we got nothing to crash into--
Except each other.
Let's ditch all the good advice.
Let's keep it real.
Does that sound right?
We've got make-believe dreams to mend.
Let's play pretend...

Let's throw some junk on a wall and call it art.
Let's say that you hold the key to my heart.
How 'bout we say there's something there
When there isn't...

My friend,
Let's play pretend.

serpent

serpent wake up now and
bask in the rays of the morning
joy in the rays of the sun
glory is ever returning 
the earth and the heavens are one
pain is only a warrning 
pleasure , a measure of truth
restrict not your true will's yearning
for then you will ever be doomed

He Gave

He came in my life when there were things I didn't understand
He walked beside me and stretched out His hand
I took it gratefully and thanked God above
That He sent us His only Son to show us true love
He gave His all for you; So give your all to Him
He bled and died for you; So you have to live for Him
There is nothing that could ever take my hand from His 
I'll love Him forever, and this is how I'll live
Jesus is my Saviour, I hope He's yours too
But if He's not..well.. I'll pray for you
He gave His all for you; So give your all to Him
He bled and died for you; So you have to live for Him
Cause in a moment in a twinkling of an eye
Jesus will come and carry us home to our mansion in the sky
but in order to receive
first you got to believe that...
He gave His all for you;So give your all to Him
He bled and died for you; So you need to live for Him

Drowning

Today I am drowning in a sea of voices
Telling me to be 
Only what they want
But I just want to be me.
I'm always expected to be perfect
And live a life well at ease
I'm supposed to be smart and strong
But that's not really me.
I can feel myself drowning 
Underall these voices
Never able to break the surface
Or even make my own choices.
I'm failing everyone
Lalling steadily faster and faster 
Into darkness, a world not mine
I land in a soft, silent pasture.
I head for the grass face-down
And cry my heart out
I just lay there sobbing
'Til I'm too exhausted to cry out loud.
The sweet meadow envelopes me
Into its grassy arms
So tenderly, balancing me so gently
And calming me with its charms.
The ground is speaking to me
Bringing me closer and closer within 
I can finally let go of perfection
And what I had put myself in.
I surrender softly, easily
And let the world take me and sway
Off to new surroundings I go
To new lands far, far away.
Now I'm in the ocean
Casting all emotions out to sea
Leaving me replenished and calm
And I'm ready to accept the real me.
Once again, the ocean pulls me
But I am no longer there
I'm flying above the crashing waves
Letting salt breezes flow through my hair.
I'm up in a sky of pastels
The color is sprinkled with stars
Angels collect them gracefully
And off again, I fly far.
Back into the meadow
But I'm strong and ready now
No more tears or struggles for perfection
And no longer shall I drown.

In My Shoes

Put yourself in my shoes and see what I see
It’s not easy being me

At age 3, a defining me
Discovering I’m black, unlike my creator
5 and 6 a quick manipulator 
Close your eyes and try to imagine
The aggany
The hatred put before me
Hatred so deep, who needs a enemy
In My Shoes, take a look
Come walk the road I took
Age 9 – 10 is where it all began
I wonder if that was in the master’s plan
To be picked on by others older than you
Criticized by the ones you looked up to
Put yourself in my shoes and see what I see
It’s not easy being me

11 – 12 I’d become me
No changing that, the damage was permanently
Being smarter, but trying to fit in
Hurting myself, my future, playing pretend
14 – 15 now I’m grown
And I’d like to be left alone
So much has happened, most I don’t understand
Respect who and what I am, a Man
16 – 19 lost as a fool with his clothes on backwards
Just headed in the wrong direction
Having had the hardest of time
Fretful of anyone crossing that line
Put yourself in my shoes and see what I see
It’s not easy being me

20-23 I’ve gained love
I’ve lost love, but it’s still plain ole jus me
Nothing has changed very much, but I’ve grown emotionally
Step into this 9 ½ piece of rubber plastic	
I put around my toes, and see
In my shoes, it’s never easy being me
So talk what you know, and testify what you see
It has nor will it ever be, easy being me!

SILENTLY

Be silent, Oh my heart and see
this feeling of descent.
Somehow, Oh God while kindness flee
my spirit pays the rent.

That fool's calm goading of espree
so viciously soft sent,
does empty slowly by degree
the grace to so repent!

Tis then, I pray for thy consent
as not defensively
to love me still, while others bill
their nonsense of resent!

My Everything

Pure, bueatiful, loving, forgiving, full of inspiration,
My lord, my God , my father, my salvation,
In my deepest sorrow; He is my light,
When it seems everything is going wrong, he is what makes everything feel so 
right,

My heart, my love, my mind, my trust, my faith and my soul,
I give it all unto him, for he makes me whole,
At my weakest point; he is there for me to lean on,
He fills me with hope and encourages me with himself and lets me know that I 
am strong,

I never need to feel alone again,
I have my lord, my father, My friend,
He guides me in the direction I am destined be,
When I am afraid, he eases my fear, when I feel blind he helps me to see,

I may not have much in material to show,
But I have an eternal and faithful love; of this I do know,
For he makes a fulfillment and a joy worth living,
For he is my lord, my God, my father, my salvation,  my heart, my love,  my soul, 
he is my everything.

LOVE ME PAST THE PAIN

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cause God Don't Want Me Here Forever

someday I'm going to leave this place
going to say all of my Godly good grace
for I know I'm going to a better place


Cause God don't want me here forever


Going to say goodbye to some good friends
kiss and hug my child till the very end
say I love you to Mom and Dad once again


Cause God don't want me here forever


Say I'm sorry for all I've done
Still go out and have some great fun
keep reaching for that burning sun


Cause God don't want me here forever


Going to lay in a garden of lace
where the sun shines upon my face
pluck a flower and put it to taste


Cause God don't want me here forever


Going to spread a little love
To the man up above
going to wait for his white doves


Cause God don't want me here forever

Love, What It Is

Love, the most beautiful treasured gift.
It is more precious than gold,
It is immeasurable and strong.
Without love we would be nothing!
There would be no laughter,
No joy, no peace and no hope.
Without love there would be 
No beauty of the earth,
No God bless America,
There would be no you and I.
Without love where would we be?
Love, the most beautiful treasured gift.
It brings warmth and healing to the soul,
It brings rest to the weary,
And hope to the hopeless.
Love forgives everyone.
Love came down from above.
Love took our burdens away.
Love sacrificed for a chance at salvation.
Love paid the price that I may be free.
Love, the most beautiful treasured gift.
Father, let your love in me overflow in abundance
That the world may know of your love.
~AMEN~

A buttery breaking from a cocoon
Hidden beauty we can only assume
Shining stars with a drop of rain
Smile with mask to hide my inner pain

Bring out the best complete the rest of me

Eyes full of life deep as a well
Your spirit is escape to this lonely hell
Give a kiss to the only one I ever love
Count my blessing thank the lord above

Bring out the best complete the rest of me

Miss the smell of your golden locks of hair
Tell me your secrets give me a reason to care
Share with me your hopes and dreams
Bare your problems in my life

Bring out the best complete the rest of me

Revelations

Why does it take the unexpected for me to feel connected?
Gods the architect, He designed it, I reflect it. 
Flip the coin of life and death,
One side Emotion the other intellect, 
Human trial and error, then progress.
It’s a domino affect.
We grow, 
Some are silent, others shine like Ultraviolet. 
I am sunlight and purple pain,
Wrist bound by misery’s chains.
I see,
We all stereotype it’s the truth,
We got deep roots and bad habits 
woven into the souls fabric,
It’s hard to manage, everyday’s a challenge.
I got to find balance.
Destroy system taught, polluted Thoughts,
Cut out the worlds poison, and burn the wound with Salt. 
Were all cut from the same Cloth.

My Truth:
Ignorance is not an Excuse.

Landscape

Connected by a feeling to another place
Deep within our minds are landscapes that are safe
Protected by a distance free of any signs
The only ones that see us are the ones we want to find

A sanctuary dressed in all we need to see
With tunnels of our wisdom running underneath
A sky that only changes in tune with how we feel
No matter where we go there’s nothing that’s not real

Imagination growing inside our inner eye
Reflecting on the surface of things that make us smile
Trepidation leaving as we explore the caves
The dark is all around us but our sanctuary’s safe

A cavern decorated with bodies of the lost
We want to run away but we can’t afford the cost
Further into darkness we finally find our way
The tunnels underground are shortcuts to the day

Connecting every mountain to lakes that hold our needs
We find the ones that made it and know them underneath
Protecting every person that wants to find the truth
We’re painting our landscape with signs that give them proof

Unkept Secrets

                                  
                                    If fate's when first impressions love
                                  Then regret's yearning what never was
                                    At ease entranced my eyes retrieve
                                                Forgotten memories
                                      Told this tale countless times 
                                  I loved an angel who lost her mind
                             Choose one word which rhymes with fate
                             Relive my life and transcend its mistakes
                             Reclaim precious time, addiction wastes
                      Some angels charm, yet their misery is shared fate

                                         Past memories,I can't forget 
                                   To cherish the past without regret
                                               Until my last breath
                              An angel's death is my secret unkept

                     If wisdom's embraced, trying moments mature
                                Some more fortunate, won't endure
                                Search the cosmos, search inside
                                Is regret volition's reward?And why?

                              Some lost souls embrace addiction
    Save precious time , their unfurtunate fate is an intuitive prediction
                        Some have past lives they've barely survived
                           Is pain volition's reward, or human error?
                              Is regret finite? Will love last forever?

                                         Past memories I can't forget
                                   To cherish the past without regret
                                              Until my last breath 
                                  An angel's death is my secret unkept

The Strength in me

The strength in me
grows stronger 
every second ,every minute 
every hour ,every day
the stronger it became's
the happier I seem to feel 
the more energy I seem to have
the better company I seem to be around others 
The strength in me 
grows stronger 
every week, every month , every year 
As I became older I became wiser
As my body image changes 
my style became's more casual 
my self esteem goes higher 
The strength in me grows
all the time 
as long a I allow it to 
and I do

O Thank You, O Thank You, My Dear Lord

How grateful I am

With my offering, unto you, I bring
Of thanks and praises, I long to sing 

Though, unworthy of your great blessings
I pray forgive me, for I’ve done evil things

O thank you, O thank you, my dear Lord
You spared me from your Angel’s sword

The Smelly Smoke

Scrubbing the surface to clear the scratches,
To remove the waste things and ugly flashes.
To keep room tidy to stack the things in place,
To care for ventilation to shinning a room face.

Spray the air-freshener and used perfume,
Washed up the clothes and put a side broom.
Clear the glasses and shine the photo frames,
Changed a new lamp shade for a nice gleam.

Curtains and wall paper matched with a colour,
Ceiling and surface has a laminated floor.
Replaced new paint on the window and the doors,
Sitting in a chair and watching tele in lore.

A fruit bowl was scenting sweetness in the Air,
A neighbour came and smoking Cigar what is fair?
I tried very hard to remove the smelly smoke,
I lost my weekend and it is hard to talk.

Joy For Today

I woke up this morning,
Snow on the ground,
The sunrise glowing in the horizon,
It’s another day.
I wish I could sleep the day away,
But this is life and I must awake.
Lord, I pray today,
Come into my heart.
Today I want to feel joy.
Lord, I ask thee today,
Free my mind of thoughts of tomorrow,
Free my mind of the things of yesterday.
Guide me that I may see Your glory.
Let there be peace in my mind,
Clear my mind of distress and worry.
Let there be love in my heart,
Remove all the bitterness and guilt.
Today Lord, may my mind see your grace.
May my heart feel Your love,
May my life be filled with Your presence.
Lord I wish to feel joy, if only for today.
~AMEN~

Around you

I like, who I am
Any time, that I am
Around you
And I like who you are
Anytime that you are
Around me
I like how I know 
That I don’t have to be 
Apart of any show

When you’re around me 
I like how I know
That I’ll never have to change 
Not to fast, take this slow.
It’ll never be strange 
For the two of us to let it show
Because I can be myself around you

You’ll never quite understand 
How this makes me feel
I’ll stand there with you
Proud you’re my man
And I will wait so we know
So we can show that this is real

I don’t like how I am
Anytime that I am
Around them
It feels like a big lie
Anytime just another lie
When I’m around them
I don’t like 
How I never know 
Who to be
How it’s all a fictitious show

When you’re around me 
I like how I know
That I’ll never have to change 
Not to fast, take this slow.
It’ll never be strange 
For the two of us to let it show
Because I can be myself around you

You’ll never quite understand 
How this makes me feel
I’ll stand there with you
Proud you’re my man
And I will wait so we know
So we can show that this is real

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.

Sometimes You Want to Get Away

Sometimes you want to get away
You want to see a better day
Things just aren't goin your way 
And you want to say so long
To everything that's gone wrong
We've all been there
And we know it's like to think that nobody cares
You'll make it, I'll make sure 
That you get through
Don't give up, you'll be okay
Tommorow will be better anyway

Does He Still Love Me?

Years gone by since we said those words, “I do”.
We have had our good and our bad.
So many changes we both have gone through.
We have grown in knowledge
And yes our figures as well.
We have built a life, a family and a home.
We have gone through sorrows and lost much.
But no matter, we still have each other.
I wonder though, “Does he still love me?”
I am not the same as I was when we met.
I lack the elegant beauty on the outside,
And the years have taken its toll.
My heart and soul has changed as well.
In some ways we have grown together,
But we have drifted apart in many.
I wonder though if he loves me still.
I know it may not be the same
As the day he said, “I do”.
Could it be more or could it be less?
Does he still love me?
He still helps around the house,
Which is all right with me.
He still says, “I love you” but is he sincere?
He still gives a peck on the cheek,
But it’s not the same as he did years before.
I do not ask for much,
Only to show his love as he once did.
I wonder, “Does he love me?”

Moments In Time

Chances go by, probably once or twice...
in a lifetime.
Good times brings smile, for a moment
and we feel we are alive.

Nothing lasts forever, sooner or later
everything will be taken away.
And the pain of losing everything you
have known begins.

Don't try to convince your self...
the lies of a broken promise.
The things I have come to love, are just 
moments in time.

We fall face down in the worst of times,
and found comfort in no one.
Struggling in each step we face our fears.

We cherish the moments spent together
and I ask myself are those just dreams?
Uncertain of the future, the rain doesn't 
seem to stop it keeps on pouring.
Oh God, when will this end?

And I don't know for sure if i'm going
the right way... Search for myself today
and I am lost again.

Bring back the missing pieces, gather
your self up, for it's not yet over.
And be whole again, in the midst of self 
doubt and confusion.

For the death of something is the birth
of something new.
A little spark of solace, serenity i have
found within.

Pain

Pain is weakness leaving the body,
Bleeding through the skin
Pain is a knife,
constantly twisting into your side
Pain is a teardrop,
Crashing to the floor
Pain is the anger,
That breaks through the bars
Pain is persistent,
getting under the skin
Pain is the screaming,
No one cares to listen to
Pain is the screeching,
You can't stand to hear
Pain is everyone's worst fear,
But pain only makes you stronger

Your Memory Remains

It’s been many months and seasons have passed
Since the day you left.
Friends you have loved,
Friends who cared for you dearly,
Still knock at my door.
We sit around reflecting on memories.
We laugh and we cry,
I hug and try to comfort.
We talk of the crazy things you did.
We ponder over the trials you experienced.
We rejoice over your triumphs.
I smile when I listen as they speak
Of times each of you shared.
You continue to live in their hearts
And your spirit continues to inspire them.
Your life was a good one.
You touched many lives
And brought many smiles.
The path that was laid before you,
Though it was rough and rugged
You continued to travel and pressed forward.
The battle you fought in life is over now,
You are free to rest until that day when the heavens open.
Until then, your memory will always live on,
Your friends will continue to carry on
And they will never forget the love you gave.
Loved ones will always remember
Who you were and what you shared.
As for me, I will love you forever.
I will continue to laugh, cry and smile
As I ponder to remember.

The Coming Light

The dream of a day that will end the night
And the birth of a cloud come to see the light
Such tales will be told as our hearts take flight
Such power we find will be true inside

The dream of a storm that believes our pain
Only enters our minds when it starts to rain
Such tales will end once we see this game
That such desperate things start when we still blame

The dream of a darkness replanting seeds
And the end of a heart that held every need
Such tales that were spoken became disease
And such painful times end our clarity

Awaken the dream that recalls our minds
That we feel with our hearts through our open eyes
With such timeless tales surrounding life
It’s hard to believe that we could be blind

A new dream is found in the gathering rain
The love that I feel now speaks my name
And the eyes that reflect speak a million pains
But this story can’t end until it starts again

The dream of a day that began with night
We will live again through whatever skies
The tales of timelessly taking flight
Is the truth that I find when you are my light

Kind friendships and nobility

Into Thy Hands

Dear Lord,
Hear my cry,
Help me Lord,
Stand by my side.
So many trials, Lord
Struggles never ending;
Are these the tests of my faith?
Is it a test of my devotion to You?
I’ll tell you now Lord,
I need You!
Hold my hand,
Help me to stand.
Lord I humbly bow before You;
Forgive me Lord,
I am bitter in sorrow,
I am angry in frustration.
My Heart I open to You,
Come in Lord
Make me and mold me.
Thy constant strength I need.
Help me Lord,
I am weak, but Thou art strong.
Into Thy hands, oh Lord
I give my life to Thee,
My burdens I lay at Thy feet.
Help me Lord,
I love Thee Lord.

He Whispers I AM Here

The day you left us,
I sat alone in agony and longed to be free.
I closed my eyes and cried with pain.
But then, suddenly, I saw the rain;
I knew then, that my Jesus, weeped also with pain.
I had no words, I could not speak;
but He heard my silent plea,
and He sent His rainbow, 
a double one to be precise
and whispered, “I am here!”
I dried my tears and whispered back, 
“thank you Lord, I love you so”
At times I still find myself silently crying,
“I need you Lord, please speak to me”
And then, a butterfly gently flutters by,
a little flower still blooms though it be cold,
a squirrel sits nearby, watching,
a single star, alone, shines brightly in the night,
the sun shines with warmth though it is cold;
Ah yes, “thank you Jesus, I hear you now”.
I feel your presence and know you care.
Many times I may not know the words to speak,
but  you see, my Jesus knows my silent plea's.
He sends these things and so much more
to gently remind me, to remind us, and says,
“My child, I am here, I feel your pain,
Believe in me, I will set you free.”

With Your Hand To Guide

Father, I got a message the other day,
From a mother who knew me not,
Lost and whose heart was broken.
With your hand to guide, she sought me out.
Father, her heart aches with grief and sorrow,
Troubles continue to fill her heart.
She too lost a precious child.
You shared your love with me in all your glory
When I too lost my child and was filled with sorrow.
I humbly ask that you show her your love in all your glory.
Father, now I pray that your hand will guide me.
Let my mouth gently speak the words that she may hear,
To soothe her troubled heart
. Let my hands tenderly reach out
To give the feeling of comfort she may need.
Let my heart be open to her heart
So I may understand her sorrows.
I know her not, Lord,
But with your hand to guide,
Help us to become closer
Not only to you but also in friendship.

I See Your Glory

Every little flower that blooms in all its beauty,
To every little bud waiting to burst alive,
I see Your glory.
The birds swiftly flying above,
To the marvels of the seas below,
I see Your glory.
The dew sparkling on green meadows,
To the intricate snowflake laced in beauty,
I see Your glory.
The warmth of the sun on my face,
To the gentle breeze blowing through my hair,
I see Your glory.
The crystal waters flowing in the valleys below,
To the snow peaked mountains reaching to the sky,
I see Your glory.
The sweet innocence of a child,
To the aged wisdom of the elderly,
I see Your glory.
These things and so much more,
Are only glimpses of Your glory.

Shadow of the Deep

A fading silhouette
Betrayed as the darkness sets
Unseen in the unknown
Taken from my loving home

A blanket of relief
Under clouds that shelter me
A storm that grants me life
In the nothing I’ve contrived

A shadow strikes the land
The lightning forces out my hand
I struggle to conceive
How it is my darkness breathes

A fear for all that’s passed
Empowering the shadow cast
I dive for the unknown
The icy waters becoming home

Frozen in belief
Colder in the coming deep
Still shapeless in reform
Still alone in the coming storm

A dying silhouette
The deepest places take effect
A luminescent glow
And suddenly I recall I’m home

Keep on moving on

At times life can be so damn confusing
to the point you're unsure of what you're choosing
certain situations you don't see to clearly
second guessing everything
including things you love and hold dearly
that's when
you gotta hold your head up
and hold it high
you gotta smile even though
you want to cry
you gotta go on with the everyday
trying so hard not to let
emotions get in the way
you gotta strive hard
you gotta keep on moving on

When you lose someone you love
no matter who, or the reason it was for living them
the pain sets deep
and you're sure tears will forever seep
from your eyes
you need to realize
even though the agony never completely goes away
the rain will dry up one day
think of the memories you get to save
those lost would want you to know
instad of crying for what you lost
smile for what you had and
you gotta hold you head up
and hold it high
you gotta smile even though
you want to cry
you gotta go on with the everyday
trying so hard not to let
emotions get in the way
you gotta strive hard
you gotta keep on moving on

Life ain't always easy
you gotta takle what it throws
because thats how as a person you grow
remember there's always a positive side to life
and everything and everyone that surrounds you
even if some days that's hard to find
just keep these words in mind
you gotta hold you head up
and hold it high
you gotta smile even though
you want to cry
you gotta go on with the everyday
trying so hard not to let
emotions get in the way
you gotta strive hard
you gotta keep on moving on
hold you head up high
so you can touch the sky
smiling even if you want to cry
keep on moving on

tonight

I will fly away into the night
Look unto the sky as I take flight
Tonight I love you so much
Tonight I want to see you want our lips to touch
Tonight I need you I need you tonight
I can’t run can’t hide want to have you by my side
	 
 chorus x3  tonight tonight tonight
 
Wanna hold you tonight
Told you I’d treat you right
You’re the fire that keeps me warm at night
What a beautiful sight I see when I look at thee
	 
tonight tonight tonight
 
I can’t fight what I feel
Take my hand and we’ll go far away
Wherever the night takes me, I’ll stay
As long as you still love me till the end day and night
	tonight tonight tonight
