Riding on the shoulders of a colored rain cloud,
admiring her reflections in a crystal stream,
which fell asleep while visiting dreams
of fishes dancing to the deep voice of a bass drum.
The darkness creeps in on its belly,
and draped a mantle over Tennessee’s head.
The white moon, now naked,
smiles with a soft glow
that mirrors in the vacant stares of the houses next door.
Sad these houses appear.
Lips slowly drain the evidence
of a crescent moon from a tall glass of whiskey,
then the voices arrive, hitchhiking on the twilight’s breath,
while attempting to balance feminine energies
on spirituality’s deception.
Minds follow Luna Blanca, a lesser light,
through the snares of the dark,
but the shadows grip ankles inside the faded light.
Lord God, send us Your Divine and Moral Virtues to assist people
Faith, to deeply understand and produce evidence to the unseen
Impart Hope to be determined and persevere successfully
For persons to consider a little generosity to Charity
To present Prudence by being careful
For untruthfulness to bring into Justice
Give fortitude for lawmakers and government officials to be strong
Bring in Temperance to exercise Patience and Tolerance
We ask these in the name of Father Christ Jesus to send out the Virtues of the Holy Spirit
white on blue
tears wave to
pain on cue"

HE IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD AND THE LIGHT SHINES THROUGH HIM.
THE SUNSHINE HE BRINGS IS SO AMAZING TO THE HEART.
HE HAS BEEN HERE FROM THE START.
HE SHINES BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN AND THE MOON COMBINED.
TRULY AMAZING HE IS EVEN THE STARS CIRCLE AROUND HIM.
GLOWING FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE FROM WITHIN.
THE FOOTSTEPS THAT I WALK COME FROM HIM.
HIS PRESENCE IS LIKE A COOL BREEZE ON A HOT SUMMER NIGHT.
A COMFORTER HE IS TOO MAKE EVERYTHING ALRIGHT.
THE JOY HE BRINGS IS SOMETHING THAT NO ONE CAN REPLACE.
A TRUE PROVIDER HE IS WITH A WARM EMBRACE.
THE WIND BENEATH MY WINGS A FIRE THAT KEEPS BURNING.
AS THE EARTH KEEPS TURNING YOUR LOVE IS LIKE A BED OF ROSES.
SO BEAUTIFUL AND DIVINE THE MORE I AM NEAR HIM.
THE MORE I WANT TO DO HIS WILL I KNOW I HAVE TO HOLD ON AND BE STILL.
The blissful flower landed on the earthly dirt
And rooted its seeds on the bosom of mankind.
The flower blooms only in fruitful pure heart
Which grazes its petals like one hungry hind.
Virtues are the atoms of God, the holiest one.
The more we attain it, the more we appear near
To Him, His being, Virtues and godliness anon
As our soul drenches with immortal holy tear.
The earthy flower blooms, dies in perched air
With a fragrance that melts, melts, melts away.
But the fragrant flower of Virtue is always fair,
Its fragrance rises towards heavenly stairway.
Note: This is a game for all seasons'... The End Game
The Lords' Arch Angel stood
At First Base
As the Angels'
Took the Field
It was just after supper
The crowd's just have had
Their ' LAST ' Meal
Jesus was at Short Stop
Usually He takes' the Field
Where God had gave
Gift's of everything
Fore this was Thy Will be done
As the Angles' sang
They suddenly took the field
Their was total silence
As the Angles' began
Fore at hand was a Prayer
I could really feel
As I Looked at Home PLATE
I thought that it must
Have been a big mistake
Fore all over the park
I clearly saw that
The 'PARK' was Dark
Yet, their was light
All over the PARK
Then I could hear the
Sound of the HARPS'
I knew that it was for
This I could tell from the Glory
And by the Holy LIGHT
The the LORD was with us
With all of His Glory
******TO BE CONTINUED******
First seek the Kingdom
The Kingdom of God
- And -
Understand the meaning....
The meaning of the
In the eyes' of God...
Understanding what it mean's
To One's self
And just what it means'
Fore the word of the Lord
Has been be-set
I've never thought that i would feel this way,
But it finally happened somehow someday;
And i drowned in the deep oceans that looked at me.
I got dazzled by this smile everytime i see
These petals opening softly revealing wonderful pearls;
And everytime this breeze fonndles my skin, my heart twirls.
How i wish to stay forever in this acropolis of passion!
How i admire those two loyal guards fulfilling their mission!
Look at the heavens sparkling in those skies
Making it hell when it comes to goodbyes...
But some dreams are meant to never come true,
Like the one of falling asleep next to you
Because, as they say, the moon is not allowed to rise on the majestic wooden cross
But what a shame of this culture and what a terrible loss...
I had to accept to fall back on earth
A place where cruelty took birth!
Even though they broke my wings, i'll climb as high as i can get
To try and find the heavens that i would never forget.
**********Note: This is Part II to the 'BIG GAME'**********
May the Lord Be with you!
Now the Devil was at First Base
Ready to take a steal
One of his minions' is on Third
Preparing to do the devious' deal
He planned to steal
While one of the Lord's Shepherds'
Was out playing the field
And their was one little truth
That wasn't heard
And that was that the Shephere
Got the word...
As the ball clasped and thundered
A ground ball that barely cleared
It took every-body by surprise
Fore it never made a sound
And the multitudes' shuttered
As he took first base
I could barely believe my eyes'
The Devil is low you know
He stole second base
But, God kept the minions'
At bay... In their place...
And it has been that way to this
The fear engulfed the multitudes'
This game was to last all day'
And it seem as though the
Devil would win....
That he should have his way....
With a little help from his
The Minion (BATTER^UP) was of
The Devils' own making
He was a bat... Lords' people
Were all shaking...
And you know what made
He did make first and released
And the Plague was in
World Domination was about'
******Surely to be continued*********
"The Divine Emanation of God"
Unfathomable are His thoughts and reasons
Hidden in His Divine Magisty
Unconditional His Divine Love
With Unmatched Beauty
Death was His Divine Com"Passion"
It was His answer to Divine Judgment
The plan for the universe
Was designed by intelegence
The ruler of these things
And the giver of these things
dont even try to figure this one out
THERE ARE SO MANY PREACHERS TRYING TO BE TEACHERS BUT INSTEAD THEY ARE LEACHERS.
LYING,CHEATING AND CREEPING AROUND LIKE A SNAKE IN THE GRASS COVERING UP HIS SLYNESS WITH SOPHISTICATION AND CLASS.
THE DEACONS ARE CREEPING ON WHO THEY CAN PREY ON NEXT WHO THEY CAN DEVOUR WHO THEY CAN EAT UP.
PRETENDING TO SHOW SINCERITY WHILE ALL THE TIME THEY ARE LOOKING FOR WHO THEY CAN PULL INTO THEIR OWN CIRCLE.
THE LADIES LOOK DOWN ON THE OUTSIDERS FAILING TO REALIZING THAT THEY WERE ONCE IN THEIR SHOES.
THEIR NOSES RISE SO HIGH IF IT RAINED THEY WOULD DROWN SNIFFING THEIR FANCY PERFUMES INSTEAD OF BREATHING THE WORD OF GOD.
INSTEAD OF MINISTERING TO THOSE IN NEED THEY ARE AT EACH OTHER'S THROATS TRYING TO UPSTAGE EACH OTHER.
WITH OUTFITS,CARS AND OTHER MATERIAL THINGS IT IS SUCH A SHAME HOW THE PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD BEHAVE.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF GOING TO CHURCH IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE ANGRY.
WHAT IS THE POINT OF GOING TO CHURCH IF IT IS NOT FOR THE LORD.
WHAT IS THE POINT OF GOING TO CHURCH IF IT IS NOT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS.
PLEASE HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND THAT IF PEOPLE WOULD STOP AND LOOK AT THEMSELVES BEFORE THEY LOOK AT ANYONE ESLE THEY WOULD KNOW THAT!
When a Mother gives' Birth
She give's it with Love
She sore's to the High Heaven
To the Christ,
Fore She is giving birth
A gift from above...
Such a complication device
Devised by God
In order to herd His children
For that traipse to eternity
And only Heaven knows
When that will be.....
For they are awaiting
To that honorable place
Yes, the Mother gives' Birth
A gift to the World
Rather it be a baby boy
A baby girl...
Their love is so innocent
Innocent and free
Shaped and molded by
The like's of you and me
Yes, they are our
Hope's and dream's
For the next generation
Marred by frustration
Self-loathe and indignation
Yet, they do follow threw
To start a new nation
A nation to be
A nation of one
One where people
Shall be delivered
All soon to become One
Where the Will of Christ
Shall be done'
For this is their Heaven
And this is their Earth
Fighting twin evil inclination
Just awaiting the time of
Where the lineage of time
Is their only Salvation
Another simple case of
The blind leading the blind
In hopes' and dreams'
FOR YOU I SEEK OH LORD FOR YOU I NEED LIKE THE AIR I BREATHE.
IT IS YOU THAT I SEEK EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY TO GIVE ME STRENGTH.
IT IS YOU THAT I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT I PRAY THAT I CAN BECOME WHOLE.
NOT GETTING CAUGHT UP IN THE WORLD AND LOSE MY PRECIOUS SOUL.
THERE IS SOMETHING THAT SEEMS MISSING WHEN YOU ARE NOT THERE.
I WANT YOU NEAR ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY TO GUIDE MY PATH.
ON THIS JOURNEY WHICH I AM UNSURE OF I CANNOT DO THIS BY MYSELF.
PLEASE STAY WITH ME AND BE MY NAVIGATOR.
I ASK MYSELF HOW CAN I GO ON HOW CAN I LIVE KNOWING THAT I MAY NOT BE HERE FOR A LONG TIME.
THE PEOPLE THAT I SAW EVERYDAY ARE NO LONGER HERE IT'S LIKE THEY JUST VANISH.
THE TEARS I CRY ARE FOR THEM THEY CAN NEVER BREATHE AGAIN OR SEE THE SUN SHINE.
BUT I KNOW THAT YOU WILL NEVER LEAVE ME SOMETIMES ITS SEEMS LIKE YOU ARE FAR AWAY.
BUT YOU ARE CLOSER THAN I COULD EVER IMAGINE YOU HEARS MY CRIES.
YOU EVEN KNOW WHEN I AM TELLING LIES I WISH THAT IT DIDN'T HAVE TO HURT SO BAD.
I AM CALLING OUT TO YOU OH GOD I NEED YOU EVERY SECOND AND EVERY HOUR.
HOPING THAT YOU LOVE I CAN DEVOUR
HE LIVES IN ME HE GIVES ME THE AIR THAT I BREATHE HE SHINES HIS LIGHT ON ME.
I GIVE HIM THANKS FOR WAKING ME UP EVERY MORNING TO GIVE ANOTHER CHANCE ON THIS JOURNEY THAT I CALL LIFE.
THROUGH THE SUNNY DAYS AND THE RAVING STORMS HE WAS THERE AT TIMES I FELT I WAS ALL ALONE BUT HE NEVER LEFT MY SIDE.
HE BRINGS PEACE IN MY SOUL LOVE IN MY HEART AND JOY TO MY SPIRIT.
FOR HE IS MY EVERLASTING WATER I NEVER HAVE TO THRIST WITH HIM HE IS MY FOOD HE GIVES ME NOURISHMENT SO I CAN BE STRONG.
HE IS THE ROCK THAT MAKES ME STRONG THE GLUE THAT HOLDS ME TOGETHER.
I RISE EACH MORNING BECAUSE OF HIM I LIFT MY HANDS AND PRAISE HIM.
HE KEEPS ME GROUNDED I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT HIM.
I AM ON A SPIRITUAL HIGH AND I REFUSE TO COME DOWN.
Weak and alone,
As I follow each task.
Too much time,
Looking through the tears of an hour glass.
Looking for purpose,
In a world so humble.
My Heart, It Breaks,
My Walls, They Crumble.
Mountain to mountain,
Going up and down.
Along with the riches,
Whose being selfishly crowned.
Who is he to feed,
The hungry and the poor?
Who is she to bleed,
When a million other people come left and right,
Just to find out what they're put here for.
We're moving up one,
Then taking two steps back.
There will be many more times,
Where our lives gets all off track.
Waiting and watching,
As our world makes it's spouts.
Cursing and sobbing,
Not living any moment like it counts.
Watching people die,
From the inside, out,
As our world breaks down in heavy shakes.
The people start to scream and shout,
"I Pray The Lord My Soul To Take!!"
A Summer's dawn
one early chosen morn
cleared haze of sleep
prepared to ponder deep.
Gaze with awakened eye
towards that dawning sky
with pensive thought upon
to whom does it all belong.
With a breath of air, respired deep
take in all with, admired sweep
ponder upon, One who created it all
what makes it stand out to enthrall.
I considered the purpose of that Great Creator
as I humbled at the footstool of that Maker
I envisage too the vastness of His space
as I bathed in the rays of His Love and Grace
Speak in Tongue....
And some speak out
Of the side of their neck'
Some do it to supplement
Their own sadistic
Strait out of the Arm's
But, when it comes' to Sin
Their is no such thing as
A GREAT THING GIVEN FROM OUR FATHER WAS,
A WORLD WITH BLUE SKYIES,BLUE OCEANS, ANIMALS, TREES, SUNLIGHT, FOOD, PEACE,
HARMONIOUSLY LIVING TOGETHER ; IN PERFECT COMPANIONSHIP.
GOD THE FATHER DIDN'T STOP THERE, HE GAVE US
THE ULTIMATE GREATEST GIFT ANYONE
COULD EVER GIVE; WHEN HE ; BLEW THE BREATHE OF LIFE INTO ADAM'S NOSTRILS.
GOD DIDN'T STOP THERE THOUGH, HE PROVIDED ADAM WITH A GARDEN OF GLORIOUS
BEAUTY AND PERFECTION.
SHORTLY AFTER THE LORD GOD ASK ADAM "WHAT IS WRONG ADAM"? ADAM REPLIED I
FEEL LONELY, I WISH I HAD A COMPANION".
QUIETLY GOD THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT ADAM
HAD SAID; AND PUSHING HIS FEELINGS ASIDE,
HE PUT ADAM INTO A DEEP SLEEP
AND MADE A COMPANION FOR HIM.
FLESH OF MY FLESH, BONE OF MY BONE,
AND THEN GOD TOOK A RIB FROM ADAM AND GAVE IT TO EVE.
AFTERWARDS GOD SAT ADAM AND EVE DOWN AND EXPLAINED
TO THEM THAT ONLY ONE THING
THEY WERE FORBIDDIN TO DO AND THAT WAS TO EAT FRUIT
FROM THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL;
FOR THEY WOULD SURLY DIE.
we're now in the midst of the Holy season known as Lent
forty days and nights of sacrifice as a way to repent
a time for us to try and get a little closer to God
a time to fast, to give up something we hold dear to our hearts
we're in the age of technology with Facebook, Twitter and texting
the way people now communicate has become somewhat vexing
always with the I-Pods, I-Pads, cel phones and e-mail
time to talk to eveyone but God who only requires knee-mail
when Jesus encountered the Tempter after His time of fasting
He had a wilderness experience that would be forever lasting
hungry and tired from all those challenges He had to face
now waiting on the word of God to fall perfectly in place
the Tempter said "if You're the Son of Man make bread out of these stones"
Jesus replied " that man does live by bread alone
but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God"
the spiritual Soul Food that will forever nourish our hearts
the Daily Bread that overflows into our spiritual cups
the Word of God, the Soul Food that will forever lift us up
as that was then and this is 2010
it's time to come out of the wilderness my friend
we all have moments of frustration, heartache and pain
we need to come out of the wilderness and by God be made whole again
to face down the devil and the temptation He'll put in your way
now resistant to sin and no longer by the Enemy to be swayed
to partake of God's Soul Food which will guide us to all truths
to trust in God and do whatever His word asks of you
to call on God and know that He will always have your back
now full of His Soul Food and on the right spiritual track
knowing that it's now all under God's control
now fed and nourished by His Spiritual Food for your soul
We are sisters we are cousins
We are friends who have no limits
We don’t know color race or creed
We live in harmony
We have boundaries we use respect
But we don’t wear blue suede shoes
You draw the line and tow it well
We often cross each others
Proudly bitches save the heat
Heart of tigress take the meat
Mostly brave some afraid
One in hate another spayed
As sex would have it we are non
You know what they do to us
Awake at four to check the door
At five we’re still alive
Is sex the same as gender
We have neither we don’t care
Is race the same as color
We have both we still share
If that is yours and mine is none
Can we not still shout it loud
Can we walk on one fine earth as friends
Can we shine and still be proud
Of feline femininity
Affectionate but fair
Of credence to no solemn cause
Nor fear of fleeting dare
Of canine fierce audacity
Much faithful to a friend
On guard with all tenacity
What treasure to defend
Slaven to no other
Libertarian are we
We have masters but they love us
They will always keep us free
Our other cousin she’s a gem, she doesn’t live around here
But if and when she comes to town, we’ll put flowers in our hair

Life is full of ups and downs.
Some keep you going while others knock you down.
It is apart of life, no need to whin and cry.
You take the good with the bad and great with the sad.
Knowone ever promised an easy going life.
You must play the hand GOD delt you until the end of your life.
At the end of your journey, our HEAVENLY FATHER was shall meet!
Then there will be no more downs but, us wearing our heavenly crown!
I am your Guide.
An Angel from the sky.
When I lye upon a cloud.
I see you walking by.
And Oh My God.
You is on the path to Hell.
And there you will die.
So don’t cry.
Just tell the Devil bye.
And keep on living a good life.
And you will soon be with God.
