I was born in Babylon
Everyday I want to be alone
I prayed not to get low
Everyday Babylon claim more soul
I just have to go, seek for more show
I grow with no shoes under my foots
Ganger is my food,
Mosquitoes sing the reggae allover my room
Webs block my views, killing my crews
What can I do to survive when am buzz
Where is that place to get crazy?
That place you cannot erase,
That camp with more space,
Where you don’t have to get late
That place where you just want to be free from
“Babylon” Babylon” Babylon…I want to be free
If there is a question, it should be about relation
My action will generate your reaction
Is substitution the way to be free from Babylon?
The game is always ON, grow horns like Capricorn
Cut the vegetables; let’s be able to be stable

Warm words work well:
Sign swift sayings;
Dance dreamy dwell,
Tell tale touching.
Bright blossoms bloom:
Voice values verse;
Ripe ripples room,
Touch tickles terse.
Speak sanguine say:
Word wonder's will;
Charm creates clay,
God's grandeur grills.
Tell thrilling tales:
Pen poignant prize;
Voice vision veils,
Sense sweet surprise.
Bit by bit blooms:
String sparkling spring;
Bright buzzing boom,
Share subtle sting.
Fine flavours float:
Fond fleeting form;
Gather glad gloat,
Nurture nude norms.
End echoes etch:
Words wisely weird;
Spread story sketch,
Burst bestows beard.

Elvis and Pavarotti,
two attractive singers
from different countries;
and both sang divinely!
Elvis was " rock and roll "
and Pavarotti a tenor
from Modena, Italy!
Both made their mark in music
singing harmony with gusto;
and at times, Elvis seemed eccentric...
while Pavarotti a flamboyant maestro!
Legends are made of one's fancy,
but these two were real;
delighting crowds with their charisma,
and their lovely wives:
Nicoletta and Priscilla
were there to cherish that thrill,
to be a big part of their lives...
even through joy and agony!
Elvis and Pavarotti...
names destined for immortality,
and many generations
will be fascinated by their powerful voices;
and like us, who heard them sing,
they'll carry on their everlasting lagacy!

Whenever I ‘GO’ to ‘W.C.’,
considering what I ‘need’;
if washing, or to ‘pee’,
door ajar - yes indeed!
Fitted a ‘Heated Towel rail’;
does it’s task and is warm...
certainly efficient, no fail;
cosy indeed, 'n' just a charm!
It saves on cost, as goes;
professional cost, expensive.
price? well, no one knows ~
prospect leaves all pensive!
She who didn’t fit the ‘Kit’:
fails to close, and to save;
bothers me, a fair old bit,
a cost of being her knave?
Shall inform my dear wife -
close door and save strife!

Bloom bright being:
Change comes clearly;
Write words willing,
Love leaps lively.
Be bright blessing:
Touch travel thrills;
Sweet sighs spilling,
Wonder woos will.
Ask aplomb apt:
Surge sparkling say;
Glimpse glimmer's gap,
Dream dazzling day.
Spread savvy sounds:
Let laughter lift;
Prize play profound,
Grace gives grand gift.
Meet moments meek,
Cheer cuddles choice;
Sense soft say speak,
Vest vibrant voice.
Yes year yields year:
Live lines lovely;
Nurture niche near,
Charm croons clearly.
Words warmly write:
Thrill tender terms;
Choice crafting cites,
Grasp gifting germs.

you know how people are and how things go in life you need to prepare and be
stern and happy through out life and just know things that you need to know and
do something about them.....sometimes god says things to you that go right to
the core of your heart and you are one again with yourself.

Stay strong enough for me
I'm not going anywhere !
Be sure to show you care
Shine bright like the new
Version of the best you.
Shine bright like that was my
Favorite song on the radio.
The song is playing on and on.
Be careful with a cold wind
That will sweep you off the coast
And give you a chance to see
My friends that have passed
On to a new starlight.
Search for the rest of your life
The only way you can.
Searching for something that is
The you thinking about me
When I get to know how I feel like I'm
Meeting with someone,but only you.
