Mind and Sound

Only light can penetrate the 
that resides in the default state 
of mind
I descend from beta to delta 
binaural beats; instantly caught 
between frequencies beyond 

I absorb amplitudes of acoustic 
and I learn to just be earth 
Since I am the earth 
and because I am of
the one that is the source of its 
I've owned the power of 

I realize now that I AM because
HE is since I am from that, a 
Created in the image of a 
and a feeling from the 
Universal Mind
I tune in to this vibration from 
pulse that manipulates 
subconscious minds

Immersed  between 4 and 7 
brainwaves halt to a conscious 
All  chakras are aligned shining 
crown energy 
and now my consciousness 
begins to reap! 
and light begins to penetrate 
the harmonious beams
that were already there
constant and always there 

is now flooded with sound 
that force brainwaves to submit 
to power
of omnipresent sound that 
always was 
and always will be connected to 
the Source from which I came
so I extend exponentially 
physical time and space

I long to embrace the intensity 
of gamma rays
I give way to the coded sounds 
that resonate from the inner 
and continue to connect 
through the binaural beats that 
remind me of before

Always familiar but ignored
until found by gaining 
knowledge of self
I listen with the intent to excel 
while reaping an abundance of 
benefits and rewards
It's already yours

Just reach out and grab it 
as long as intention and ego is 
the universe will correspond 
it will deliver a life to you divine 
and orderly
Just listen to the sounds that 
were there from before
They will guide to to the 
vibration from the core
and it will guide you to connect 
directly with the source

Aliens at Your Bedroom Window

Don’t worry now child
There's no god, so worship space
You are not alone.

Powers of heaven
Shaken. 		Gates brought down
Deify. Defy urbanely
Programming genetically
Sub sonic sounds
Domestic mirage of liberty

Homeland invasion - Counter-intelligence

Conducted on our own nation
On us.
Claiming they must
In defense of supposed

Islamic threats - Chinese Debts
Pakastani! Illuminati?
War is waged
In name of worship

Distractions we serve
Make sick
Poison		-	Inflict

Federal reserve
Printing our cage
Turning the page of peraphecy
Illusory trick

Consecrate history
Set the stage

For our hostile reality
To seize control
Take violent action

The end-times arrive
Prophetic signs
Humanity defiled
By our sons of Belial

Gods disdain
focus the iniquitous
Divine in malice
perfect unprejudiced
Expostulate vile villains

Nefarious hearts
No wealth of moral
Only moral is wealth
Engage the knave

Treat the sick
Combating against spiritual health
Can't run from sin
Cannot run from yourself

Dimensional Transcendence
Accelerates the end.
This blood will rinse

The Duchess Of Paradise

She's highly sophisticated and full of undefiled wisdom
Yet a crowned Duchess in a paradise kingdom
Quite a beautiful angel flying with black wings
Covered in gold jewelry and precious things
She dresses like the women of ancient Egyptian class
Her wealth is generous and her money grows like grass
She loves orange scented candles with dark room flame  
She rules thirty legions of soldiers and Bune is her name
Her comely warrior voice can wake and relocate the dead
Her armies of soldiers gather around the cemetery
She is brave and deserves a princessly crown on her head
Her facility of speech and flair for words is legendary
A beautiful queen to be treated with respect and honor
Instead of blasphemy,wanton abuse and fictional horror

A Soul Awakened

The warm light calls me
And all the people who cries for thee
I raise my hand in this abyss
Only to make one wish
To float among the others
With all my sisters and brothers
I call out for forgiveness with passion
I take their pain into myself for this occasion
The moment that I see the sky
I will not look back and cry
My body is laying still
People standing by it with a chill
The air gets dense with sadness
I would not think of it less
Some people look up and down
To see the light hit the ground
Some can vision the uplifting feeling they see
One soul that has been and always be
It is special to notice such aberration 
And that might be how souls are awaken

John- four- letter words contest

Just as he is, one of the saints
On high with the lord on whom he waits
He was known as the disciple that Jesus loved
No one denies him the prophetic vision he once had

A Humanist's Plea

I don't want your fantasy
or religious sycophantcy
and specially not your 
holy water

give me science, not belief
a computer, not the bible,
black holes and deep human
love for my wife and my kids
and my friends

a beautiful sky and a beach to
walk on, a tale, a poem, 
a mind that is open

Android Embedded Chrystal Blue

          Android Embedded Chrystal Blue

In the corner of the galaxy dead in front of night
Just left of the quasars charted long ago
A logic being called 732 thought out and calculated
Waited for the proper landing on the proper planet site
A cold green world with three moons came into view
A giant star off to the right was ready to go nova
He had to set up for the show
The probe shuttled down with perfect coordination
To the surface of the barren world
Instruments and Android 732 were on board the tiny craft
The robot is the next generation of thinking machines
Artificial intelligence of the highest level
Equipped with weapons, scientific tools, and knowledge
Liquid computers housed within its metallic head
Designed to analyze and measure everything there is 
The Android is authorized to do anything it pleases
Given freedom and vast latitude to explore
Religious leaders blessed it and confirmed it
To be free in every meaning of the word
They authorized it to have a soul and save the universe from Satan
To roam and catalogue spiritual and scientific entities
 Down to the micro mystical cosmic core of molecules and atoms
To advance the human and android condition without limit
It explores new planets and space anomalies by choice
Returns data to the home world through a beam of light
Android 732 crashed into the cold green planet while distracted
Focused on a giant star off to the right that just exploded
In a spectacular display of colors of reds, yellows and whites
It became enamored as it entered the green icy planet
Impacted a crystal glacier at the designated site
Became embedded in it
Froze there on the spot, anointed by blue ice
Enshrined for all eternity
An android crystal blue forever
If my calculations are correct as estimated

An Astronaut

I think I was an astronaut
Aimed for the stars.
They fill me up;
They refuel my tank.
They enable me to believe,
Telling me to never give up
As they follow me all of my days.
If only we could see the beauty
That they truly are.
They shout out dreams
That we can reach so far.
Climb into the rocket
And liftoff!
On a journey to discover ourselves,
We are taught so much more,
Learning our goals are only a plan away.
Even thought we must return,
I know that I will be back.
I am an astronaut,
And we always reach for the stars.

Extensions Of The Girl

She was eminently qualified in numbers  
Held fast to the beliefs in physical objects  
Felt every molecule down to her mortal soul
Religion guided Sue through water and soil
Down in the mud of love 
Prayer lined up on the side of God
A tool most useful in the invisible realm

If not

She was locked in tangibles
Sherlocked away to wait for Easter
Buried under a stone most uncomfortable
To be deduced, from what is and what is not

Thereby order could be restored on Sunday
Drilled down to the atomic level of abomination
Established first by logic in the seventeenth century
Light won't pass through the ways of reason
Being solid as it stands

Where souls split into the Adam unnatural at Evening
All men are created equal to their mortal core

The Iliad and Odyssey are read and dead 
In another language long and gone

Sue knows Greek as a 5 letter word 
Greek know Sue more than you know  

Trojans were of another kind of clan
Spoke Luwian at length
Cuneiform or hieroglyphic characters carved

Souls starved for more attention than misunderstanding 
Stood out in their own reflection 
Crawled home in a holy hole for protection

Flashlights are not prescribed for reading Homer
We recommend Sue's interpretation of the past
Objects in Archeological pockets are counted
Sins glow in the dark inspected
Calculated to the numerical physicality of being
Extolled by Sue who knows such things
Gold is found without tools to grasp the meaning
Souls unearthed remain with words unspoken
English is not an ancient tongue
Extensions take the dig
Can only go so far
Sue knows who you are
Before it starts

The New God

You're a voyeur at best!
Your vampiric heart beats out of your chest
Ready to consume the final climax
I know who you are - when the lyrics fail to resemble
Letting your poison drip straight from your lips
Portraying, entertaining the image of sex's delusion
You know only rape - manifestation of hate
Lack of the fruit of the beauty of a human mind
Depths you'll never penetrate!

She was only a doll - type of a lost father's adore
Impaled into a desperate whore
Shamefully out of broken safety's  choice 
She bore embryogenesis of morose
May your rusty blades caress as they please

So confront the masses with the halt of embryogenesis
Let the worship of machines be
Leg them construct us cell to cell
Nature's just in the way
Of our race of perfectly engineered machines!
The burden of conception
Surrenders to the will of
The New God

Food for Thought

Science yet can’t find the link
to what it is that makes us think,
to what it is that guides our way
and makes our choices day by day.

No proof that good or bad exist,
no evidence upon their list,
no theories that can shine a light
on what is meant by wrong or right.

So lacking proof for what is plain
man had to find a different game,
in many ways these games were sought
to find the reason for our thought.

God appeared in many ways
to give man reason for his ways,
and just to balance right and wrong
the Devil now joined in man’s song.

So now content with mankind's song
he found his thoughts could get along
with others of his chosen kind
and didn’t have to blame his mind.

But maybe good and bad exist
as living things that science missed
and influence our every day
and guide the way that mankind play.

Then monasteries are goodness source
to spread out goodness, but much worse
our prisons shelter evil’s power
and spread this evil hour by hour.

It could be science one day will find
some things exist beyond man’s mind
and really give us food for thought
about the things that we’ve been taught.

As i read the last chapters of Isaih
in the hours middle of the night
i encountered them missing verses

they tell the story of Isaihs wife
tell of Isaih's journey to heaven
and his fight with pollynesians

a race of females who enslave
by use of technology and magic
they had taken over the gadgets

Solomonic devices used for communication
Isaih managed to defeat the pollynessians
and destroyed all the solomonic gadgets

Isaih gave up his spirit and was taken 
to heaven because heaven will need his
help again in the future 

the future when the solomonic devices rise
and the pollynessians try to gain dominion
once again through the technology

they hyponotise the user of the gadgets
the user becomes a worshiper of pleasure
and material wealth worshiper

that night am sure i read the missing chapters
the story is still very clearly in my mind
next day i searched for the chapters

to no avail and i wasn't sure any more
whether i had dreamt up
the whole thing

A Scientifically Religious Experience

            A Scientifically Religious Experience

While I sit in church my mind begins to wonder
It passes by the alter through the walls
Then reaches at great speed to cosmic places
Not yet charted on the map of time
Accelerated ten times faster than a light
My thoughts go out there where they belong
I cannot afford to buy or operate a space craft at this time 
My mind will have to do
Three layers cover the oval silver ship
The outer one deflects particles and radiation
It breaks down, collapses, after penetrating
The first five universes along the way
The second shield consists of electron and antimatter elements
To neutralize the effects of mounting speeds as I proceed
Through stars, quasars, and colors multi-matter 
The last layer of protection on my simple ship
Is made of elemental particles that holds it all together
Keeps us from shrinking into the void
Into the past to find real history
As speeds just keep increasing
It is no mystery
I have to get back to my original position
Finding it might be a task
Will I still be there in church when I return
Or will it be the past?

Armies arranged according to their ranks and divisions
Armed with weapons of all manner and kind encircle..
An army stretching all the way to lake nyasa and chad..
An army bent on malice encircle a the sacred mountain
A land where the Almighty is honoured adored and loved
A people who hold and swear by what's most sacred
They who keep the covenant and honour the sacred vow

The defender holds the sword of truth and swears
Swears in the name of the most high never to let
The box fall to the hands of the infidel invaders
Out of choice forced to choose out of alternatives
Holding the sacred sword of Aysra-el it lights ups
Silver lights up amidst a clap like that of thunder
The defender strikes down the sun.. Armageddon

Leaving Adam

Leaving Adam

Eons advance and passed away.
Thought, theory, speculation and opinions, die.
Glancing through lenses, and squinting, at the sky,
Adam, pointing, at the twinkling specs, named the brilliant ballet.
So, following mankind, up the mountain,
And ascending a rocky path; we embarked.
My feet followed his, upward, to where the sky was arched.
His staff pointed, and the heavens, then filled me, as a refreshing fountain.
An advocate of The Father of Man, I desired what he sought,
Thus’ left the home of my family and upheld his zealous quest
Confidently, I abided and affirmed his every request.
Even, wore his belief’s; did just as he taught.

One day, dared I asked, Adam, the man of science,
How is Eve today?
And, if looks could kill, then Eve is dead, thus’ left us only, to pray.
Deceased, she is. He answered, with a chill of neglectful defiance.
Man of Science, I spoke so boldly.
At the mountain top; we stand
The stars, you named, and held, in your hand,
However, love you murdered, so coldly.

This day, I choose the mother
Her love, which first found me
Within the warm and welcoming spirit, in there, dwells she.
 And, today, I accept non-other.

So, progressing and moving towards her;
 Over, the cliff of doubt, rapidly grabbing her hem, I aim.
Because, after carefully, considering your treacherous, pains,
There, in her grace ~ I seek her, safe harbor

I choose faith, that which, I cannot see.

Brother, Keep Preaching

Two black soul brothers
Standing on the corner
In front of Metro center
On a Friday night

In the heart of the new evil empire
The center of the beast
Hell Central

Preaching the word of god
The news of the end of the world
The proverbial end times 
Were upon us and coming soon

The commuters, workers and bemused tourists
Walk on by the preacher men
Some pay attention, most walk on by

They did not want to hear 
They did not understand

And the preacher man kept
Preaching the word of god
And no one paid any attention
None at all

God is going to punish us
God is coming soon
To punish the wicked and the evil
And to set things right

God is going to punish the U.S.
For its arrogance, hubris and hypocrisy
For its greed and evil
Disguised as saving the world
From the evil ones

God is coming, oh yeah he is on his way
And boy is he angry at us
At the entire human race

And God, let me tell yah
He ain't the wimpy, wampy pappy 
White boy false god of the New Testament
The false deity that the evil Reverend Farwell 
And the smarmy Pat Robinson worship

Hell no
God ain't that god

God is a mean, angry powerful God
The god of the Old Testament
The god of the Koran and the god of old
The god that man once feared 

Yeah, I am talking about that god
Jehovah, Zeus, Allah and a thousand other names
The god that our ancestors feared
The real deal, and boy is he pissed off

And he is coming to set up straight
And send most of us straight to hell

Anthropological Flashback

They say
way back we became
Homo sapiens
They say
we evolved slowly
from ape to man
This unsettling news was force fed to me
through public education shock therapy
Anthropological flashback
has me gritting my teeth
As an adult, got strapped into a metal chair
for being non-conformist,
having old-time radical views
They be giving me cave man torture
using modern tools
in the year 1982
Got so much electrical current
coursing through me,
I don’t rightly know
what’s science fiction or what’s reality
They’re gonna get my thinking standing upright
No more Neanderthal biblical thoughts
lumbering through my head
Anthropological flashback
has me scratching my fuzzy brow
How a monkey became human
has me wondering,
how come an ox didn’t become a cow
Wrong way logic
must be the God-spirit roaming free in me
Could it be evolution 
ain’t nothing but a Stone Age Tarzan theory
Anthropological flashback
has got my ancestors under attack ...
I never read where Adam had a daddy,
who was a gorilla named King Kong
Or Eve having a mother who was a chimpanzee,
that just sounds so plain wrong
Looks like they got a lot of work to do
to successfully brainwash me
But I’ll trade you two bunches of bananas for a coconut,
if my mighty fine 
uncle Joe Young comes swinging from a tree
