Naked

Naked

Bare and revealed to the world
Contours and hinges of your curves
Naked to a point of shame
No remorse to the imperfections showed
Naked not seen through glass

Revealed truths to its history of handling
Told stories encrypted on the skin
No colorful paint explains it better
Historic traumas laid out for glow
Baring fruit to the beholder

No clothing for the famished body
Unhidden ways of life
Naked I bared myself for you
Only for you to behold the imperfections
Lying on the ground blending my skin 

Here I am no lye to what you see
My name sad out loud with pride
Skin color not a prerequisite
Naked to your world and mine
Open to my ways of life.

Tolerence

you heard me cry
but did not come
i pleaded to you for love
You waved goodbye

i am done
i am over
i am gone
i am under

you called yourself a lover
you sad God loves
you failed to love me
you moved me to shame

i am done
i am over
i am gone
i am under

shame on your judgement
shame on your beliefs
shame on your mis-placed anger
shame on your actions

i am done
i am over
i am gone
i am under

Small

SMALL

SMALL CRIES I TAKE BEFORE I SLEEP
‘IS IT THE ANSWER TO DEAL WITH PROBLEMS?’
I ASK MYSELF
SMALL PROBLEMS FOR A SMALL PERSON

IS IT NECESSARY TO SHED SMALL TEARS?
SMALL EVERYTIME I AM IN PAIN
‘ARE MY SORROWS TOO SMALL TO BE CONSIDERED IN HEAVEN?’I ASK THE LORD

IT IS TOO HARD TO GROW, IF GROWING MEANS GETTING THROUGH PAIN
I SOMETIMES SEE LIGHT, BUT TRY HARD TO KEEP IT BURNING
LOST IN THE MIST OF LIFE, LOVE AND FEAR
PLEASE HELP ME LORD, I AM JUST A CHILD.

You are not Found

Lost in the world of the dead
Carefully hiding yourself image
Masked face to hide scars
Self inflicting wounds to release pain
Are you done yet?

Hide, and hide, and hide your sorrow well
Dwell in your inclined premonitions
Don't move, you might be found
Gorge food to a point of disgust
Are you sad yet?

Mimic the moving shadows
Getting further to your dark side
Hovering whizzes of your breath
You are lost, you just found out
Are you getting the point?

Unknown world to your soul
This is another windows of the world
Losing balance with every step taken
Calling sounds not heard
Are you serious? You are lost!

Remembering the 24 hours acts
Smiles of poeple you've know
Sounds of crashes and screams
You see yourself lying there
Are you crying?

Behold the acts of losing your life
Bending backwards to please
Done,done you are gone
The light beams from the horizon
Damned are you.......? You might be found.
