If We Could Switch Shoes

If you could step into my shoes
Would you see the things I see,
Would your head feel dizzy like mine is now
Or would you still walk easily?

If I resisted like you do
Would I be this wreck of a girl,
Do you think I'd have turned out stronger?
... A lighter step, a happy twirl

If I was as white as you are
(Or as you seem to be)
Would I be someone's angel too?
Like the angel you are to me.

If you could step in my shoes
Would you understand my pain,
Would you have fallen just as hard
Or do you think it was all in vain?

Take a look through my eyes
And tell me what I'm doing wrong
Tell me how to fix it all
Whether the situation be short or long.

If you could step in my shoes
You'd see much better than I
Your beauty, wisdom, pure intent
Is enough to make me cry

If I could step in your shoes
I wonder what I'd see,
Would the world become more beautiful;
Does it all depend on me?

Stuck in a world, she can't find her place
Feeling like noone cares, 
looking for away out of this evil crule place she calls home
her mother pretends like nothing is happening 
she pretty much raises her 7 year old brother and her 9 and 10 year old sisters
she thinks that she isn't brave anymore
that all happyness is gone
she tries, so hard, she ends up with a fork in the road
noone sees it coming
she can't leave her brother and her sisters behind, 
they are the only things keeping her alive, 
her father is crule, sick, twisted, so many ways to discribe him 
she's afraid that if she tells, she'll be taken away from her siblings 
she's tries to hide behind her walls, she paints up her walls
she tries and tries and yet...
She's still stuck in a world where she can't find her place

The One

I love the way you lie to me
And laugh and cry and smile to me-
Would want and wish to die with me;
I spare no love on you...

In grade school I had acted out,
And picked on kids until they'd pout.
In recess I would run and shout,
But I'd not yet met you...

Well, one night I had a crazy dream;
Can't quite remember, though it seems
That soon I would, and it be seen.
No clue it was of you...

Next day, the dream came soon to light
As butterflies inside caused fright.
Love came, when came a pretty sight-
My girl, that sight was you...

The Wings Of An Angel

God is a poet,
 his blessings in rhyme

Salvation unmetered,
  inspiration divine

His voice calls us inward,
  temptation now gone

Where the wings of an Angel,
  carry words into song

Embracing with thy heavenly father


Embracing with thy Heavenly Father, there's no better feeling, feeling that warm, soft, hold in a sisters arms, 
Embracing with Thy Heavenly Father,  only a true sister, child of God would understand, no words needed, just two spirits joined together in His Holy name,  no two people are ever the same.

Having a dear friend, care about you, with asking nothing in return, time stands still, for life is beautiful again, pray, He is listening, speak, HE is there, He made you for this very reason....

Embracing With Thy Heavenly Father, where ever two or three are gathered, There I will be, it's o.k to let go, for I see your tears softly falling, It's my Spirit filling your Heart, fear not, for I will Never Depart...

Love Above The Elements

I know love with you...

The sea in violent wave 
will not submerge our hearts,

The fires of fast fury
cannot finish the poetry of our tender touch,

The gales that gust grimly
will not wear away the warmth of our eyes,

The stubborn earth in it's shifts
shall not quake and crumble the structure of our love's monument...

Dedicated to my Love Muse...the future knows our pulse...

Angel With An M16

There is a tale I can relate to you And I can guarantee that it’s true It’s about a battle just north of Hue On a hot and sultry summer’s day. VCs were in control and we had laid back But today was the day we chose to attack. Some said we didn’t stand a ghost of a chance Nevertheless we chose to advance. The fighting became heavy and loses were fierce. Charlie had defenses we just couldn’t pierce. I looked and could see troops falling beside me From flashes of enemy fire I could see. Things became blurry and eerie around me And I sensed firing coming from behind me. I saw VC troops falling like flies – I could hardly believe what I saw with my eyes. The firing behind me kept finding its mark As the battle continued almost till dark. A sense of victory soon became ours As Charlie continued to lose firepower. As I waited for enemy fire to find me I could sense the fire grow heavy behind me. The enemy continued to fall before us Things began looking good for us. We continued advancing and soon left no doubt The victory was ours, and it was a rout. I was in some kind of a daze Everything was covered by some sort of haze. The firing that saved us was a real mystery It was heavy and deadly and brought victory. I turned back to see and all that was seen Was an angel standing there with an M16.

The Ones I Have Lost

As I go through my day, they are by my side, 
Following me, watching me and also being my guide. 

These are the angels of my loved ones that passed, 
When I know their near me,  I want this feeling to last. 

I never had much family, separated by distance, 
Sometimes I felt like my world was of non-existence. 

The few I loved so much and held so dear, 
My grandfather, grandmother and father are no longer here.

But when I smell my dads cologne or hear grandmas voice in my ears, 
I hold in my heart their near me and it rids me of fears. 

I certainly must say there is not a day that goes by, 
That I do not think of them and softly cry. 

I always pray that they will visit me while I sleep, 
Dreaming of them is a wonderful feeling that goes so deep. 

I'll miss you everyday until I am no longer on earth,
When I see you all again, it will be like a rebirth.

Memories Linger

Memories Linger
	Soft and sweet, so little and tender,
I pray again someday we’ll meet.	
Memories that seem so far away, replay in my mind again today.
Giggles sound as your tender touch is felt!
	Then and there to here and now prayers form;
bringing memories back into sight.
Soft and sweet, my little angel plays. 
Breathe it in; smells' baby soft from memories past, 
unfold and bloom!	
Until we meet again, memories forever linger of my little angel.

Windows of a Soul

Through each window I am bestowed to see
The path that lies before them is clear
Most are leading no where
The day is theirs 
Lost in the moment where time stands still
Centered on their chosen Thrill
A journey that I have to watch
For what reason
Has not been told
I will trust in the Spirit
To keep me on course 
And follow this path
Into Thy Lords Wrath..........

So the night has gone
And the air is comin' cold 
And the melancholy falls
Like snow upon my soul 
So cold. 

     (I'm still here, by your side, dry your tears our love survives) 

I still hear your name 
Like an echo in some hall 
It still burns this flame 
Like snow upon my soul 
So cold. 

      (I will wait, here for you, by the gate we all pass through)

   You used to say 
   In this world of fear and alarm 
   You'd always stay 
   Here within my arms  

Though my life goes on 
I'm frozen in my role 
In an avalanche at dawn 
This snow upon my soul. 
So cold. 

     (Hold life dear, wear that smile, I'll be near all the while). 

So the night has gone 
And the air is comin' cold 
And the melancholy falls 
Like snow upon my soul 
So cold.

Star Child

Constellations in my eyes;
Windows they're said to be.
Look into them now, and tell me what you see.

Calling every angel born in Hell:
"A child of the stars looking for his soul to sell.
So few are left to be birthed of Orion's Belt."

Soon they came; rulers of every layer.
Each to make their offer, 
And leave their summoning prayer. 

"Centuries of wisdom, and a mind that holds no time.
The past, present, and future are all close friends of mine,
And the Titans of the Universe I stand so close behind."

They opened all my wounds to taste how I have suffered,
Shamed me for my scars and all that I've recovered. 
Then mocked me for my weakness, known only as 'The Lover'.

"It is forbidden for us to deal a soul of the cosmos,
And you taunt us for what you wish to sell.
But we've found something in you to make us heroes down in Hell."

You are protected by forces greater than your own.
Should any God or Demon make you bow before him,
Death would surely find his throne.

It's your heart that we desire, and the love that you still hold.
Grant us this purity and surely you'll have more than this world can hold.
Let it be known that your heart is the heaviest to hold.

Surely it is quite the burden to bear.
So strange in it's nature, let us free you from it's wear.
Success will quickly follow and embrace you in it's care."

Yes! Take from me all that you desire!
No longer will I suffer in it's muck and it's mire!
Do with it what you will in the cold and the fire!

With their prize, they left with no hesitation.
Legion upon legion; Hells' United Nations.
All for their Master and all in celebration.

Lowly creatures is what they're cursed to be.
They know me by many names, they know me by many faces.
And my heart I've sold on every occasion. 

Fools! Surely they must know!
That every heart I give away
Brings me the love that stays.

Tears of Diamonds

Tears of Diamonds are swarming with love
With foams of rays from heaven above.

A message hidden in each tear is a mystery to know
Where pain and laughter comes as the wind blows.

A name unknown with roses torn and scorn
Where love is concealed in the heart of Gold.
And with time dwindling like a dry grain yield 
The fields of Vivacity will dry once again.

Then the reflection of the tear will tell a story that’s old
So pure like a Diamond that was never to be told.

And while the story of life leisurely unfolds
Tears of Diamonds fall from the heart of Gold.

With a echo of hope filled with light
The fields of life will yield over bright.

Just as Tears of Diamonds are full of love
The foams of rays come from heaven above.

With faith in return to win the steeplechase
The tears of Diamonds are the reflection of your face.

The Dream

Oh, do you know the finest road
That leads to my desire?
Nobody walks that trail but me,
My dreams will set to fire.

That one heart I was looking for,
The heart of Anthony,
The purest heart I’ve ever seen,
Someone perfect for me.

A dream occurred while I’m asleep
We’re walking hand in hand,
We sat down, I lean on his chest
Down there on fine, white sand.


Another night, another dream
It made me feel in awe
"I'm weary of this journey, love,
I want to be with you"

My tears fell down but I smile,
The feelings were the same
So when he turned and looked at me
I said “I want your name”

Hidden Evil

The town was beautiful,
even the people too.
Flowers and joy,
and the sky was ice blue.

The people of the town were together,
they all felt at home,
apart from one little girl,
who was nothing but alone.

She looked at her reflection,
she stood and she stared,
there was something great inside her,
but nobody cared.

Then the skies opened up,
just as she had planned,
the evil inside her grew,
as fallen angels filled the land.

The people were in panic,
they shouted and they cried,
but the little girl stood calm,
as she watched the people die.

'Oh, lord have mercy upon their souls'
The little girl said with a grin,
she knew what she had done,
'Let the chaos begin'

The sky closed up,
she was once again alone,
but with all the angels gone,
she now felt at home.

The town was destroyed,
the people were gone,
ashes and flames,
and the girl's evil had grown long.

Purple Heart

I remember the night
some time ago 
that we were happy
my brother was coming home

I remember that he said 
that he'll be back some day
well that day has came
and I can no longer wait. 

but I had to wait
he didn't show
only the men
who were below

they said to me
in a way
that made a mess
swept away

my brother went away
and died
he was fighting for us
to save our lives

he was a soldier 
like marines, airmen, and coast guards
that was it
the whole nine yards

but they are strong 
and they always are
because they are men 
with the purple heart

there gave there everything
there is never a fail
they stand strong 
a strength we hale

hale our love and 
hearts to all
to those who fly and those
who fall

The Beautiful Spirit

This beautiful spirit comes to me in my dreams
It's always the same the ora she displays just gleams,

Some times I can see her so clearly
And other times I can see her bearly,

She floats in mid air and signals me towards her
Wanting to let me know that miracles do occur,

The silence is all I hear
And for some reason it all seems so clear,

This spirit I speak of is my beloved sister
It has been 6 years and we still miss her.

Read that
Aw, made me blush
You didn’t got my way to write a poem
Same thing I did to Lontie
That’s why I kept on asking you
Read here
Sulu Sail there
Indeed, you read it?
Yes, you know what?
I don’t know, what is it
You know the entire time that I was mocking you 
And yet you still have cornered me with your charm.
What do you think of that poem?
Charming, you really know your way to my heart no?
I love the poem I wrote because someone is inside it.
Was there any poem you have written without anyone in it?
Yes, but in this poem is only you is that someone
One poem of me then
Indeed this is the poem for you
Who has the most numbers of poems who have written about?
I mean, you have written about
No one except my life and journey
And right now this poem is you
What contains in my poems is my journey in life
But personified by moment
So to whom is that ilyimy line then?
Iloveyouimissyou that is for you!
Go, you're a flirt!
Isn’t it cute?
Lost for words as always
What do you mean?
No one has ever written a poem about me, but you.
My pleasure!

Is it quiet enough here in your head? The chaos of the mind has subsided to a dull roar. The battle with self has come to a stalemate. Both sides have withdrawn, not in retreat, but in an attempt to resupply.

The rancid smell of past thoughts permeate your senses. Memories are left strewn across the war-zone, their death stark upon your emotions. It is time to recruit new dreams to send into the fight, to become heroes; or be left for dead on the battlefield in your head.

That the battle could be won says nothing of the war in your soul. It is here that the conflict escalates to nuclear proportions. Even though you hold your fingers over the button, your resolve is smashed. You bring those trembling fingers to your face, wipe the tears, and know you have failed again.

Or is it failure when you live to fight another day? A simple foot soldier in the trenches of yesterday never believes they are the future General of tomorrow. Often you live in the present fight, with tunnel vision focused on the enemy surrounding you. It is hell when you realize that the enemy is only you. But your back is against the wall and you are not accustomed to losing.

And the battle rages on, dreams are shattered against the front lines of reality. The masses engulf the weak; will is broken. The once barren plains now run red with the blood of hope. The skies are clouded with the mists of loss and the scent on the air induces the desire to stop breathing forever.

The last sounds you hear are screams. You never realize that the screams are your own.

My love

The sound that stirs my inner soul hath no comparison to the beauty in you I 
behold. My heart though it longs to be bathed in your grace, I yearn much more 
to hear you speak my name. For your words are like gold more precious than life 
that to hear your spoken word would bring peace in this night.

The Mirror of Abaddon

Fourteen-thousand years ago, a devil played a game
In his garden with an angel whom I shall not name.
The angel won or so he thought, “Now you must pay what’s due”
I’ll take your mirr’, your favorite one,  and break the thing in two.

The mirror was a magic one of evil dark and black
“The beauty of a perfect world, now what’s the fun in that?
This one’s far better, it twist, it pulls it shrinks before my eyes.
Instead of showing true reflections, this one shows me lies”

“I’ll tell you what, you won it fair, it’s yours but let’s do more;
I’ll help you break it here and now and it will be no more.”
The angel smashed it into two, his hammer in his hand.
“But why stop there?”, the devil said and smashed it into sand

The Devil grinned, “Good work my friend. See, I don’t even care”
He scooped a handful of the dust and blew it in the air.
Among the people of the earth, the grains of mirror blew.
The angel warned them “Close your eyes!” and blew his trumpet too

“What gift is this?” some people thought, Eve’s lesson was not learned.
and soon awoke with crusty eyes that itched and teared and burned.
“I see it now!” the faithless said “I am no longer blind!”
“Don’t be cross” the devil said, "Their eyes see now like mine".

Some were seized with a panicked fear, “The enemy is nigh!”, 
and with cruel rocks marched on their neighbors and sentenced them to die.
Others were charmed by shiny stones “Supplies are running out!”
The simple gifts that God had given were left to lay about.

Some saw themselves with grandeur high “I’ll wear this mighty crown”, 
I’ll be the King, you be the serf, and bow when I’m around.
The other ones yoked to the plow, “These types aren’t men at all”.
I’ll tolerate your presence if you're at my beck-and -call.

Of arrogance and fear and greed the mighty nations grew.
And men would starve and wars would rage for these unfaithful few.
So hear me now you righteous ones whom the devils would refuse:
In the game of life Good always wins, but bad will never lose.

Ladybug in red

Colepatra kissed and shrunk me down to microscopic size
please believe this phenomena cuz these lips refrain from lies
metamorphosis transformed mine human manly guise
while strolling one spring day me vision turned to compound eyes
unfettered vesicles uttered pleasant shrieks and cries 

she danced with a feverish spring and stepped as if in the air
no worries existed for whose well being she did care
with eyes of sparkling emeralds with a shimmering flair
amber waves brought serenity from her flowing glistening hair
attracting like a magnet every person she that came near
spreading infectious contagion of happiness every where!

tossed out the fashion boutique on a cushion squarely led
this lady in red
with her snug outfit against her slim body did wed

pizzazz and personality that bred
this well healed nanny with high street cred
made sure charges looked spiffy and well fed

she danced with a feverish spring and stepped as if in the air
no worries existed for whose well being she did care
with eyes of sparkling emeralds with a shimmering flair
amber waves brought serenity from her flowing glistening hair
attracting like a magnet every person she that came near
spreading infectious contagion of happiness every where!

atop shoulders bounced a well coiffed and adorable head
drawing followers wherever she led 
and listened to her sexy voice no matter what she said

she danced with a feverish spring and stepped as if in the air
no worries existed for whose well being she did care
with eyes of sparkling emeralds with a shimmering flair
amber waves brought serenity from her flowing glistening hair
attracting like a magnet every person she that came near
spreading infectious contagion of happiness every where!

William part 1

I ask all to be open minded as I tell the story of my friend,  William .
There are so many prejudice in this World , from color to sex 

To me it has always been the soul , the person inside 
For one that is shallow will not experience life in true blessing 

William my friend was African American , he was fun and personality full of 'I am here "
William was Gay , William disowned , William called "A queer "

Well this is a lesson for all to know
God does not care what color , but the heart , what color it shows .

I had left my 1st Husband , with 2 children I had to support .
I was depressed , felt alone in the civilian World of a sort 

For when I got to Monterey bay , I was on a Military base 
Very shy and recluse , not leaving the perimeter of the land 
I opened such a big door when I left that abusive Man 

I had the tiniest apartment with 2 little rooms , probably 550 sq. feet I presume .
I will never for get the night He came to my door , William ," Girl, lets go dancing 
Let's go explore ! He called me 'The platinum Blonde "

We went out together and danced , he was amazing ! William energized any room . He Lit it Up ! 
For he had something inside his beautiful soul , no money could buy, nor silver or gold.

Well years went by in Monterey bay , I had fallen in love with a man , Lost so much time .

Time went by , after the man broke my heart ,I remember "where is William "
I missed something that lies  deep in my heart . The true Love and friendship of he I craved .

Now this story is long so go to  "William part 2  "be patient , be brave .

old brick wall

i dreamt
i moved into a apartment
with an old brick wall
and its decaying face
the old light hanging from a thread
swings on the open breeze
from the window
time seems to slow down to a crawl
so i can see each and every flaw
so i can feel each and every thing she wanted me to feel
so i can know each and everything she saw
and so i see the the moment captured in ink
on her sketch pad
a drawing of the wind in the trees
a image of the smell of the fresh cut grass
the thoughts of the passer-by
who looked with such stark wonder
at this open display of what we have all taken
for granted we could never achieve

the old brick wall
leaned into the wind
and held
for one more day
kept safe the world she held so dear
safe for one more stormy night
the old brick wall
with its spray painted messages
like how joe loves daisy
and how we should make love not war
the old brick wall
holds back the world
from coming into her quiet soul
into the paper flowers and lace curtains of her life

the old brick wall
was once the west most piece of
the boxers rebellion
he was sad all his life
torn from his violent profession
and forced to retire
and his fists lay idle
with objections written on them like scars
but after years he came to terms
with the reasons great and small
with the rationalizations made up and real
and found peace
he found his fists could be hands
and hands can pet a cat
hands can paint a masterpiece
write a love poem
hands can touch another person without hurting them
and he suddenly he didn't want to hurt anyone ever again
because he loved having hands
and all the beautiful things they could do
he would never have fists again
and that change in him  
was so profound that it became magical and
part of the old brick wall

so it will endure past its years
to protect her little scavenged world
her delicate life
her frail thoughts
because beauty isn't always
what the world thinks it is
a boxer can tell you that

Mild wind touches my hair from the back in a ponytail. 
I removed the tie then start flying.
The wind of Putrajaya sisshing in air

Beneath the silence, 
The country's flag swinging near the lake-river,
Upon it’s a proud being.
Looking at the bridge I am seeing, 

It is like a flower in the middle morning.
The tourists of different nations here coming, 
Taking Cruise Tasik roaming around the lake, 
The man was making.

I also can see the palace of the king,
The state Selangor flag is also flying. 
I love you lake. Layag Sug!

Angels Crying

There’s an angel crying in the dark
Watching a young man, as he falls apart
Nothing to do – Nothing to say
The only comfort is that help is on the way

There’s an angel crying by the stream
That came from the river that is a beast
Everyone watching, talking, and crying
Until they rode up with his body there lying

There’s an angel crying in the clouds
As they say his name out loud
Joy is filled, Love is true
Angel is smiling, For he knew the truth

-Sometimes in Life
	        it takes a tear to overcome
 Death, Sin, and Hatred
	        of my brothers and sisters in love
and the Angel cries
and the Angel feels
   	        watching and realizing that our life is real
	Our Life is Real
It’s not make believe
It’s not Fantasy
It is not your Dreams
It is what you feel
	Our Life is Real
	    Our Lives are Real -
