To All Of You

There are times we are left to cope
With situations that drain our hope

Leaving us full of despair
At how some people just don't care

About the evil that they do
To good people like all of you

We are left to somehow face
That in mankind there is disgrace

And those of us left alive
Must find away to survive

As you pick up the pieces of your life
Without your mother, father, husband or wife

And some of you God forbid
Without the love of your kids

We must band together with a brotherhood
Show that in this world there is some good

Because we are together in this deal
We try to help each other heal

We seek in each other good advice
And offer each other sacrifice

We hold each other in prayer and song
As we continue to re-build the wrong

Because what else in the world can we do
Except let the light of good shine through

The evil darkness and despair
Of a catastrophic lack of care

We want you to know you are not alone
Think of America as a giant cone

And all of us are funneling through
Our prayers and hopes to all of you

In the name of blood, for it is the source of life itself,
Plasma's crimson essence of liquid infusion, to the undead's
Pulsating heart.
Intravenously feeding cravings passion, through the carotid
Artery at the throat of humanity, thou'st not love, suffer
The pleasure indulge the pain, the out come shall be the same,
To be embraced by the black ebony arch angel of death,
Release thy darker side, let the instinctual behavior of the beast,
Know freedoms unshackling at last.
Become one of his sacred disciples, a creature of his dark dimension,
A kindred being, unto the legion of the night.
In the moon's elliptical light, shadows thus move from 
Left to right, shifting as transparent figures, phantoms of
Illusions, taking winged flight, soaring on the currents
Of air mingling with their ancestral brethren, the vampire bat.
Run does not the lone wolf, along the side path next to man,
As we do so walk amongst them, yet never attempting to belong.
Oh are we not the a shunned, the accursed, by a God known
For his forgiveness, to love all living things under
Heaven, but for us this mightiest of lords, turns
His gaze away, not acknowledging our existence.
Our we not his lost sheep, missing from his flock, why
Does not this Sheppard seek this black lamb’s wool,
Is it too coarse for weaving's wheel, as it spins thus
And is it not said that he created all life within his image.
Nay I pray this vamperic prayer, why has he abandon
Us, the darker of his creations.
Behold the unascended, begging to enter beyond the gates
Of light, children of the lost are we, seeking a father blind
To his responsibility.
Harvesting, by the basic instincts given unto us,
Taking only what we need to survive, for this he has turned
Against us, and thus taking the light of day with him.
So my father of damnation's hell, has offered salvation's
Darker domain as a sheltering harbor of comfort, I will not
Abstain his patronage.
For I am the ashunned, living by the moonlight's haunting glow,
Yet yearning to see one last horizons sunset, but the Holy Father,
Hears not my humble vamperic prayer.

I Serve The Lord

I serve the Lord
	By the things I do
            	I am his servant
                       		 These words are true
My eyes have seen things
          Only evil men know
          		My heart has lived places
                       		 Only evil men go
My mind has thought things
	Only evil men think
            	My lips have tasted things
                        	Only evil men drink
I have lived places
	Only evil men live
		I have gave orders
                       		Only evil men give
I once traded my soul
	To live in a flask
            	I lived in the shadows
                       		Adorned with a mask
My truth is my honor
	My words are my plight
	 	I serve the Lord
			By the words that I write
I no longer grow old
	By the light of the moon
            	No longer is my soul
			Swimming in a spoon
I serve the Lord
	By the things that I do
		Have no doubt in your heart
			These words are true
Once in a miracle
	Through the words of a rhyme
		A sinner found Christ
			And stopped doing time
Set free on a mission
	To enlighten your soul
		I follow the Lord
			In search of my goal
The man that I was
	No longer exist
		He died the first time
			My wife and I kissed
Inside of a box
	I decided to pray
		Stepping out of the darkness
			  Embracing the day
I serve the Lord
	Through the words I write
		Your soul is my mission
			Serving God is my plight
I don’t criticize or judge
	That’s just not my way
		I simply bow my head
			And for everyone I pray
The prayer is quite simple
	It’s a spiritual bath
		I just ask the Lord
			To enlighten your path
The brighter the light
	The lighter the Son
		When this life is over
			This job will be done
I follow the Lord 
	He guides my path
		It’s all very simple
			No complicated math
I serve the Lord
	In all that I do
		If you wish to know why
			It’s because I love you

Tell Me

I'm lost hurt and angry
Why did you take his life
I want, No I need to know
Tell me, Tell me why
I deserve to know

Haven't you done enough to him
What'd he ever do to you
He suffered his whole life
Suffered more than anyone deserved
Tell me, Tell me why you did it
I have a right to know

Why'd you let him born to them
Born to worthless parents
Parents who didn't care
They threw him away like garbage
Pawned him off on someone else
Tell me, Tell me why
Explain how you could do that

You gave him Polio
You let others treat him like disease
You took away the full use of his legs
You warped his hand and foot
Tell me, Explain to me why
I deserve to know

You let others think he was crazy
You let it go on for over year
You didn't stop it, Why
Tell me, Give me your reason
Answer me God, Help me to understand

You go and make matters worse
You gave him Cancer
You didn't give him a chance to fight back
You just jerked him away from us
Tell me, Tell me how
How you could be so cruel

How can others not question you
When others do it, It's murder
But when it's by your hand
It's your will, Their fate
Tell me, What makes you so different
Your no better than the demons knocking at the door

You heard me beg and plead
You know I'm not afraid to die
I was willing to carry it all for him
I was willing to take my Daddy's place
You didn't even let me say Goodbye
Tell me, Tell me why I couldn't take his place
Answer me God, you owe me that much

A Land Bearing Green White Green

Which way leads to the 
land of green white 
Which way are we 
   A country the wicked 
bears the rulership, and 
the people sighing 
   A terrible thing sprouts 
beneath the sun: a 
pregnant woman 
delivering not.
Imps come to lime-light 
by snuffing air from the 
goose that laid the 
golden eggs.
The blind guiding the un
The weak suppressing 
the strong-a terrible 
Like the overthrow of the 
gods at Mt. Olympus by 
the Titans.
A country where also 
thieves appear as men of 
Land of green white 
green,which way?
A land where the 
enlightened ones are 
overshadowed and 
peanuts given to them.
The masses are dogs that 
eat the crumbs.
 Which way to go you 
Iliterates stand on 
podium of power 
bellowing orders as milk 
of sorrow known as 
dividends of democracy 
is passed around.
The machine of progress 
manned by the 
"There is better 
tomorrow" we hear.
Land of green white 
green,my country 
where rule of law walk 
beside anarchy.
The proles are sentenced 
to adversity,and there 
endured death-like trials.
Chai! Aru! People 
dancing on thorns 
whimpering as they 
  I see a new sun rising 
from the horizon,hope is 
rekindled as its rays 
grace on hopeless bodies.
 Look!! there soon be

What did I do to deserve this

What I do to deserve this heartbreak,
this horrid and unnatural pain,
this cleche of events that strike me simultaneously
as the time ticks away,
and as the grinning faces pierce a whole through my soul
and my heart turns pale and slowly beats.
My heart is torn in two,
and I cannot find the doctors to stich me up.
I ask an old man,
how does love go about,
he smaked me in the face and went on.
The pain and the sorrow,
it is too much to feel,
too much to gain in one serving,
When I eat, I taste posion, not passion,
familiar faces turn grey, with ruby eyes and sharp fangs
they hiss at me, like a cat to a mouse.
I don't understand why I deserve this.
I am a good man,
who loves with open arms and a big heart.
With every hug I give,
I recieve a knife of betrayal in my back,
I feel the blood ooze from my open wounds,
suicidal tendencies roll through my mine,
but I quickly throw them out,
because Mama didn't raise no coward.
I see the blow, I clench my fists
and swing away,
God cries wanting to stop this madness,
Death laughs and soon joins in,
people join in and punch away.
I lay there on the concret blood everywhere,
my heart torn out of my chest,
each with a thousand knives stabbed in it,
as it slowly beats,
I lay their on the pavement,
looking up to the heavenly skies,
and as it starts to rain droplets of hope
I ask myself,
What did I do to deserve this?
Then, I shall close my eyes
and rest for awhile.


Inspired by all the betrayal and heartbreak I've faced, by so many cowards who didn't want to recieve my love. People I had thought who were my friends, came with invitations of humiliation and hate, and now I see who my real friends are; this pen and paper... Have a good day.
P.S. No one should ever be shown this much betrayal and heartbreak. I wouldn't even wish it on my worst enemy. Have a good day!

The Eye

The eye,a sign the 
unwise can't comprehend
  Forged from the world's 
illumination in darkened 
minds,for the 
enlightened ones like 
Leonardo da Vinci,Isaac 
Newton,John Milton....etc.
   The eye is a tree 
with many branches like 
Priory of Scion,Knight 
Lodge,Music industry, 
Politics,global economy, 
stretching beyond 
human imaginations-felt 
in all corners of earth.
  The world is clothed 
through wisdom from 
   The eye,all seeing 
sign,an invincible 
emblem of power and 
riches to the lion hearted 
and loyal souls.
A seat of influence and 
  Creating the social order 
through men of power....
  Some see it as a 
curse,others a blessing.
  I feel it,the great eye is 
everywhere watching

See No Evil

If I were to see no evil, then life would be barren. If I were to see no evil, then what would be the need for change? If I were to see no evil - would I not know that I am good? If I were to see no evil, I am standing in the presence of God. If I were to see no evil - I am dead of this world and passed on into Heaven.

America Is Being DESTROYED From Within


As sin and perversion often become integrated… So many lives and families are being “disintegrated.” Many are being driven by sin’s temptation force… It’s no wonder much of this country is way “off course.” The morality and values that once made a great nation. Are evaporating…. Leading to a “spiritual separation.” Love, honor, and respect of God… Is often a “thing of the past.” Anything of God seems to be disappearing FAST! God is our only hope! And him alone! Only he can bring healing to our broken homes! He’s the answer to this wounded nation, that bleeds! It’s only God that can meet all of our needs! He’s our provider… The great: “I am!” Won’t you reach out to him? And give him your hand? Why not give him a chance? And allow him in? A brand new life for you… Is waiting to begin! May we allow God’s holiness and love to reach down into our hearts… Asking; “Lord please forgive our sins!” Is a good place to start! By Jim Pemberton

The Living Dead

Take away the safety net
What remains 
only the weak kill and call themselves men 
A coward hides in the mountain of who they are 
behind their own curse justifying wrongs 
Tears falling each and every single day 
suffering innocence weep 

Self inflicted forged inside darkness 
Mortal sin 
The day will arrive 
when you have to come out of your shell facing reality
Evil deeds done dirt cheap begging soul forgiveness 
Blinding pure is the eyes of our Saviour 

Salvation enslaved by guilt 
poor is the heart where poison seeps 
Rich forgiving pride the Lords prayer I say 
Please God open their eyes to your peaceful presence 
Make them aware of your goodness morally within 

Open their souls to the truth 
such deeds hold an ugly sin
Mercy on your damned soul 
Such actions 
destiny crumbles 
inside their castle walls bleed burning with fire 
Angry all their lives at everyone but themselves 

Articles of faith strips them bare 
I tip my eyes to the Lord 
Blessing myself in the name of our Father the Holy trinity 
Begging their forgiveness 
One third of Man 
blind faceless spill blood 
cursing peace and His Holiness in the end days

A Very Inviting Temptation

A Very Inviting Temptation! I remember of a particular situation. I was offered a very "inviting" temptation. The situation I was in... I didn't belong! And lost any sense of "right and wrong." At first... I felt no guilt or shame. And brought embarrassment to my family's name. I tried to explain this to my wife and kids. I heard; "Dad... please... no more fibs!" The Godly principles were "tossed to the side," As the sin inside caused arrogance and pride. Soon, all in my life that truly mattered... Was gone! My life was empty and shattered! I was sorry for all of the problems I caused! This time... I took a moment to pause. I cried to God to rescue me from my sin. I confessed! Would God help me once again? I read in the Bible of Jesus’ grace and love! This time the help I needed had to come from above! I asked him for a fresh and brand new start. He removed the stain from a broken heart. He restored to me the joy I once had. I'm so blessed! Jesus has made me glad! Jesus is the reason I'm here today! I LOVE HIM more than words can say! By Jim Pemberton

Face Of Night

When night face appears:

  Hades erupts with the 
hammer of death,stiring 
the waters.
Lemures dashing forth 
and back preying on 
wandering souls-tell-tale 
odor pervading the 
Resistance is like chasing 
Shackles of bondage 
looming,even the blue-
blooded under chains 
and fetters.
   Howling winds 
harmonize with howls of 
night marmosets- 
creatures of doom.
Splattered blood spread 
like cancer: a norm of the 
Mountains of carcasses 
caressing the sky.
  The world becomes 
scene of blood bath,
carnages mounting, 
screams perforating the 
   Long ago,a human 
phoenix lived and died-lo 
he lives!
(Carpe diem)! He offers 
hands of goodwill with 
beaming smiles.

A Prayer For America

America, once free and strong,
you now are weak and it won't be long,
before you crumble from within,
unless you turn from grievous sin.
Lord, save this nation, make it great again.

God has been banished from our schools,
while society creates its own rules.
What's right is wrong, what's wrong is right,
and Satan is laughing with delight.
Lord, save this nation from its plight.

Corrupt leaders are in control.
They have no heart, they have no soul.
Our freedoms they're trying to steal away,
and we, like lambs, are led astray.
Lord, save this nation is what I pray.

Hatred and violence are on the rise.
Terrorists are plotting our demise.
Natural disasters have multiplied.
We need the Savior on our side.
Lord, save this nation from foolish pride.

God's word is clear, we must repent,
and turn away from evil intent.
We must embrace our Savior, Jesus,
then God will grant us favor and forgive us.
Lord, save this nation and restore us.

II Chronicles 7:14 "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land."

Is It God We Trust Or Leave In the Dust

Is It God We Trust? Or Leave In the Dust? As our courts remove God from this great nation. We are left with a confused and lost generation! As God is taken away from our public schools. A huge tide of immorality is what “rules.” The Bible is often mocked and discarded. It was on it’s principles this country was started! Just about anything of God seems to get scorned. So many “rush” to worship many ungodly forms. As God’s name is often tossed and thrown out. We tend to forget what HE is all about! Too often, his plans for living are tossed and abused. No wonder, there’s many who are lost and confused! As people forget God and worship the fallen creature. They look to themselves and “glorify” their features. Many ignore God, and get involved in deep addictions. And with this, come disease, heartache and afflictions! As God looks and sees this nation “bleeding.” It’s his righteousness, that we need to be seeking! If we would humble ourselves, he would hear our prayer! He loves all of us! And he really does care! Won’t you come to HIM, And invite him in? Won’t you allow him to be your master and friend? He brings strength and nourishment to the soul! It’s only in him that we can be made whole!

A dream come true-I

   I salute your inventive
   Paragon of excellence.
  An out-let for display of

tangible form.
   Limitless quiver 
housing the enlightened

   Your ship of knowledge 
ferry talents from 
obscurity to lime-light.
Giving preference to no

My Lord

My Lord
By: Aidan Gilbert

My Lord gave me feeling
My Lord come to my healing
Should have never looked down 
Should have never made that loud of a sound
But when you see your shadow as darkness
And dropping your heart was something you missed
You get a little scared
With your darker emotions you are pair
My Lord gave me forgiveness
Where to find it is my only wish
I knew hurt would make me hide
But I never knew it would take my pride
Darker and darker every night
Lesser and lesser there is light
I find myself each day with more and more sin
Ever since the downfall of men
Lord you’re my rescue
And only you
But Lord give me time
We both know I’m not doing fine
My Lord gave me feet
That stumbled and burned on my sin’s heat
Lord did you get my prayer
I don’t know cause to the blank clouds I stare
But through it all I know you hear my voice
Cause on that cross that vinegar was moist
God I think any day I could be better
I have your redemption letter
I just have to find it
But each day is harder cause I take a new hit
So I’m tired and is giving up on this searching is something I can try
Lord Is my sourness making your love dry
On my broken bed next to sin I cry
Lord next to me you lay down and lie
My guilt cleared when I saw the compassion in your eyes
I had a moment and It hit me
Lord you put a whisper on me
With my eyes closed I could still see
That with one sound you can set my free
Holy spirit moved
And so quickly hurt was removed
Lord I know you’re the only one I need
My Lord rumbles clouds
My Lord makes the thunder sound
But there is a dark street
Cluster with people who are weak
Demons in their minds
Demons guiding them from behind
My Lord gave me new sight
Reason to what is right
All these people wandering around
On the inside falling down
I cannot cure their struggle
In their lives I cannot meddle
My Lord let me do something
I once felt their sting
But time and time again
I go down the wrong street and meet sin
I know I’m not perfect
But what makes me different form them is I know you think I’m worth it
My Lord loves me
He’s all I need
Through it all I still fight
Fight through the darkest nights
Through it all I still want to help my friends
But their lives I can’t tend
My Lord had blood shed
My Lord choose the color red
To his home I am lead

Said the indigenous people of their land -Evil Provocation

Said the indigenous people of their land,
"Our Lord,
Since time started we lived here,
before prophets and their offsprings. 
We built sanctuaries and prayer houses.
Our Lord,
today like never before,
we are under siege
as suffering invades our homes,
steal our sons,
silently rape our daughters,
and imprisons our men.
Our Lord,
when will you end this siege,
this carnage,
this destruction,
this inhumanity.
Stop the collective effort by mighty nations 
to suppress our people.
Do we not show solitude in prayer to you?"
Do we not show humility, 
to those who seek our brotherly feelings?
Yet these evil outbursts and suppressing efforts to batten us down
keep us enslaved within new walls in our lands,
of ancient times,
which we had never forsaken.
Our Lord, 
Three thousand years back,
we took in their father Abraham,
treated him with love and kindness in our homes
and when he wandered off,
raised his children as ours.
Do you not see how they repay us?
With evil upon evil,
Our Lord,
We beseech thee,
free Palestine and the Palestinian people from this siege.

The Devil Came Knocking at My Door

The Devil came knocking at my door,
Coming in disguise, enticing me to the dance floor.
He whispered in my ear, saying he owned my soul.
Then I felt his manipulative evil, trying to take control.

I got out my Bible and began to read His word.
And I knew my prayers to God had not gone unheard.
Be careful which door you decide to open,
If you lose perspective, you could end up lost and broken.

Go Away Haters

I want haters to go away

Unfortunately they are here to stay

People become haters everyday

What can you say

I just try to pray

That tomorrow is a better day

It is learned the hard way

So it is not easy to portray

Not to want to hate and stay

The way they learned to hate and play

To play a haters role and be happy

Soon it does bring you down come what may

To become this older person with shades of gray.

shadow people

A diaphanous glow
This uncanny manifestment
From heinous realm i do now know
Recanting this calamitous affair
A shadowy outline only would show
Then frigid cold air
as I peered into darkness 
I could not compare
yet somehow disambiguate

Like antimatter, twas dark
Twas in my kitchen
yes the darkest part
The spot is now landmarked
There was no ommision
Oh my beating heart
and one of a Griffin
I chose to embark as if on a mission
A dog barked, I listened 
My courageous approach
I hearked, then resumed my march

Off to their room it would go
Of those whom i love most

Toward the damnable 
Flagitous it smelled- so gross
It spelled something- no ghost
Absurd, I'd heard of these..

These unpleasant entities?
Concerned to say the least..Jesus please!
Had i brought it inadvertently?
Self resentment, what's my defense?
And should i repent?
On he I depend...I didn't forget
Was it invoked, or did i provoke?
This silhouette, at fourteen feet 
this was no joke
Twas not forseen
I would not choke
The divine I would seek
On high, the almighty
Twas he I'd beseech
Signs all around
Self awareness increased

I prayed over them
Back to the netherworld
Back with the beast
I said stay away from them
I'd somehow mend a breech

Day to day I pray for them
and this has brought me peace.

I am one hypocrite, imperfectly
I am all edges, no single curve
So rough all around, so badly wrong.

I like the positive, never to do
I say all that I should, none ever true
I step on every toe, I am the brute!

I am one evil mind, alas I am
I scheme all that I can, sleek, evil plans
What is the need? In here, no good is found.

But I’m sorry, each time I break the line
In tears and anger, every blessed time
And I despise at once the shameful crime

Would it ever change anything inside?
If after death one’s corpse would start to cry,
Could it draw any grace close, right beside?

I could but scrape my knees to beg for hope
I beg just for grace, not karats of gold.
I beg each time that my prayer would hold.

One hypocrite; imperfect, always would cry
Would beg for mercy, would forever try,
Though I be called a fool, and termed “unwise”.

A moment of prayer

I tour this desolate world full of anger 
Possessed by self-destructive danger 
Obsessed with vengeance and an evil agenda
I seek a spiritual path, to the heart of a panda

For my soul to reside in paradise,
But my thoughts tell me otherwise
Likewise, my doubts leave me paralysed
My fears leave me traumatised...

My spirit will never know heaven’s glory
My prayers will never levitate higher 
Remaining unanswered, feeling rejected
Unloved in this world of hatred...

I’m a product of an evil prowess 
Of the physical, ruthless universe
I’m nothing without His power
My only hope is a moment of prayer

Terrified moments are frozen in time 
another Black Friday inks history 
as fear gripped innocence wrenching
it ripped it from their astonished eyes 

Then lights turned off on a Tower
normally filled with life and love, 
Mothers wailed as Fathers filled 
with anger petrifying their hearts 

Now knowing a magnitude of loss, grief,
The Country of Love weeps for what was, 
steadfast, noble yet still abrim with hope 
candles and flowers stop missiles of hate 

So vast is this outpouring of love 
the whole planet shines in tribute, 
with ribbons of blue white and red 
streaming unto the heavens above 

we have cried with you, and for you 
we've said prayers of protection,
I Daydream of peaceful saner days 
when humanity can be in solidarity. 

Showing humanity at its very worst
and at its utmost horrifying, 
this act of barbaric monsters 
has stoked the fires of Justice 

Erase them from the pages of our age 
it should be as if they never were, 
like the Nazi's they should be hunted 
the Federation of fellow man shall rise.

Love will always conquer hate filled minds 
tomorrow faces a thousand ways to evil,
let compassion and common decency 
win the day, lets again know a gentler time

In the long grass, fear is only a concept 
and humankind no longer knows only greed,
In these days to Love your neighbour 
will just be, I'm just a dreamer maybe 

The City of Light is illuminating the world 
with Grace and Fortitude their shield, 
and by their side the sword of the justice
is rising ready to strike so they can RIP.

A prayer to Jesus

Speak to me lord and direct me
Carry me to the mountain high
Far from the city of destruction
Where I can lay on my knees
And bathe in your glorious fountain

Give me strength, Lord Jesus
Tighten my earthly shoulders Lord
Grease my joints, oh dear Christ
Help me stand
For me to live is Christ and for me to die is gain

Wipe my heart with your holy water 
Purify me Lord, from any acerbity inwards hidden
Grant my soul humility, oh father
Grant me love and divine joy, my savior
Protect me from the acidulous activities of this cruel world

Extricate me from the evil deeds of the world
Set me free from any chains of the evil one
Fill me with light and strength
Radiate through me your abundant joy
Use me to enlighten the unrighteous of your grace
Thank you Jesus, for answered prayer. Amen

Some Merciful Angel Spared Me From Death

I heard the swooshing sound of wings, then I saw
an intense blinding light that no sun could show:
powerful hands pulled me back to avoid fret...   
oh, this miracle prevented me from being hurt!

Some merciful angel spared me from death,
reinforcing the belief that angels really exist; 
since adolescence one archangel was sent
to protect me until I'd give up this breath!

Any fallen angel certainly wants me to die,
the one very loyal to God still stands by me;
I can rest assured that I will be very safe in  
every darkest place from nightfall to dawn!    

The existence of angels deepens this firm belief
that they guard all the good souls from demons
who have brought with them envy, grudge and grief;
o angel, guard me from them, spread those big wings! 

Pick: A for Angel

Hear My Prayer

Prescious lord up above i am praying to you. 
To rise above and shelter us all from all the evil that has been plaguing our homes. 
Prescious lord up above i know you are watching below. 
We are calling on you to rid the evil which has been taking the lives of so many innocent people. 
Young and old alike are taken with out a care by the killer's 
that are hiding in our homes. 
Prescious lord up above hear my prayer and shelter us from  the evil. 
Shelter us from Satin's fury. 
From a sister to a brother and dads too. 
From a baby to a mother and grandparents too. 
We are  all no longer safe in this world we call home. 
So prescious lord up above hear my prayer.
