A Wounded Heart

It’s like a room you sweep and can never get all the dirt out.
Like an important message you can never understand, no matter how loud they shout.
It’s like life that repeats itself over and over again,
When it’s wounded there is no cure.
So why would you want to see it through to the end.

Like a scar you can barely see but you know that it’s there. 
Like the memories you forgot yet scared to search elsewhere.
Some say it heals in time, I say no, for it never leaves the mind. 
We yearn for happiness and rob ourselves blind,
you compromise and displease yourself to give a peace of mind,
and the moment something arises they neglect all the signs.

It’s like a race you start and can never complete.
It’s like walking into fire but you can’t even see it.
Everyone has a different story or a different blend, 
but when something is broken, how can it be mend again?

 I should’ve seen that you were trouble right from the start. 
I’ve learned so many lessons. Like never to mess with a broken heart,
A future that bares the past requires much more than faith.
A heart that was once broken is fragile and is easier to break.

Life's many Changes

              It's funny how everything turns around, travels faster than the speed of sound.
        how easy we forget the things that matters the most; from every nation to every coast
                       everyone from all ages are in tune to life's many changes.


            It's funny that there's no love anymore and if you do find love after sometime all that love is out the door, it's no pointing of the fingers it just ranges all because of life's many changes. It's strange how you can say one thing and it means another; like "i am here" yet the heart says its a bother.

            It's funny that you feel free, no slave masters, no bars and no chain,
               you are no one's prisoner but you can never free your brain.
our past teaches us how to embrace the future but what is the future when life is a cycle.
   Everything in stages nothing is the same when you turn the pages.
                      All you see is life and it's many changes.


        You will learn and not understand, you will gain and also lose at the sametime
you can be certain and at the same time be filled with doubt, words are effective in actions never when you shout. Sometimes it is in the wrong that we find solutions, there are times when mistakes must be many to arrive at a conclusion. peace is for the peacemaker and animals are for cages it does not matter where you are or who you are life will include you in its many many changes.

                      Blueprint is to plans as budget is to finance.
                      Water is to life as accidents are to rages.
                      People are to mistakes as life is to changes.
                      It's no mystery, its just life and its many changes.

Conflict

Some say “it’s better to have love and lost than never love at all”
They also say “if it was meant to be it will come right back to you”
I say “love is the enemy the silent destroyer and not to be underestimated”
It is the ruler of your brain and the master of your heart 

Anything lost should remain lost; if its possession was of any worth it would 
not be neglected
Nothing is meant to be if it was not carved in stone, our future is mold by our 
choices.
Never get emotionally attach to anything /any one you cannot see yourself 
without.
For life is a journey and understanding should not compliment doubt.

Some say “never to burn your bridges behind you”
They also say “you cannot know the future without knowing your past”
I say “knowing your history is one thing but the future still remains a mystery.
 Some bridges are made to be burned while some weren’t strong enough to 
last
Not everyone that gives a helping hand has a good intention
Your friend could be as close as your brother but behind his aid manifest 
deception

“No man is an island and no man stands alone”, I remember this well.
Who made this phrase up, what do they mean and on what aspect? Please do 
tell.
Unity is strength I know this to be true and still what was made a whole can be 
broken in two
I say “anything you can’t do by your self leave it alone and be very careful not 
to make ones burden your own.


Some say “the youths have no hope for the future”
Yet what hope does the future provide for the youths?
And what’s the sense of being direct if it’s not all the truth?
Also what good is an opinion now if you chose to be mute?


I say “youths make use of your prime”
And ensure that you’re being paid for your time.
Never expect people to tell you the truth,
It would be a bonus if they do
People will say what they want also do what they want 
So I say, time is money so when you talk be quick
And when you come with your ideology or your tricks 
Come prepared for a conflict

Metaphors

It's like a vase you had but sorry that you bought.
Like behaving as if you know, when it's so far from what you thought.
Some will despise the truth no matter the cost,
while some prefer to be ignorant than to admit they're lost.
Now life becomes easy with limited ways to earn.
Suddenly people change to crazy with unlimited ways to turn.
 
 
Listen carefully and go slow when you read.
Strive for the whole suitcase and not only what you need.
Though I care not for tomorrow It never troubles me to  stay
that I'll be down by the river if I am unable to find my way.
So close to the end yet so much distance to the truth,
 that time is a thief it takes everything even your youth.
 
 
"More dogs than bone", that's the term,
"Many rivers to cross" for some just don't learn.
It must be done for it only takes one
Some things are pointless if some things aren't won.
Priority is key;
So what cant you bare to see?
 
 
Desperate times, so speak no evil.
Information is value, so be cautious with people.
When the doors are close your unable to see
that everything has a price including the tree.
My words are perplex of this I am sure
But  the odds can never be against us
if we're using metaphors.

I am

I am who I am not because you think I am.
I am who I am because you say I am.
Your words do not define me, it only motivates me to be different.
There was a time your actions would infuriate me,
suddenly my actions is all you see.


I will do what I must than to be a burden,
for people are nice to your face and devious behind curtain.
If I am silent then I have nothing to say,
I've learned well the formula for trouble 
also how to detect when discussions go astray.


I will share with world though some things I hide,
like why am I the Black sheep, Z' Traveler and why I hold them with pride.
My memories are misery it's almost a strain,
My past lets me forget nothing especially the pain.


If I am not too forthcoming then you need a new plan,
for skeptic and distant is definitely my intention.
There are times I think that I am the only one 
but the years made me strong and I say thanks to you,
for it is you who made me who I am.

Independently

My people, for too long we have been moving  as a nation Independently,
so much so that our girls have become prostitutes and our youths have turned to crime.
The cost of living is high while the value of life has declined.
Now I could tell you what I am about but you've not gone deaf,
only gone blind.
Don't you see that to manipulate and kill each other is no way to achieve?
still others have done this so why must you believe?
 
 
"Each one, teach one, give a man a helping hand" .
Was this just a slogan or did I interpret it wrong?
We are God's people and we survive through his grace,
disregarding our race this is what I know.
So why do our men criticize and chastise our sisters
because she does not respond to a "Hi, Psst  and  hello"
 
 
And women why is your worth measured on a piece of paper?
Yourself respect and pride all set aside for later.
When you were born queens of the earth,
the very essence of life is what you give.
You need not money to define your worth
and I am not trying to tell you how to live
but for too long we have been doing it alone and I think it's time
we unite for under God we're all one family
and we've already tried it independently.
