Betrayal at the Hand of the Protector

I grew up, watching you watching me. 
Does anyone hear my desperate pleas?
Can anyone hear my muffled screams?

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays.

Nothing in this world can satisfy the want to live, but the need to die. 
With each stroke, I feel alive. 
Instant rush, I’m feeling high. 

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays. 

Innocence gone. 
Now I’m left with these bloodstained hands. 
My will to live, buried in the sand next to the dead dreams of man. 

Your true colors shine like mirrors reflecting lights. 
Should have known better than to start a fight. 

Bite your tongue just to save face.
Respect lost, 
Trust decays.

BITE YOUR TONGUE

 anger, betrayal, confusion, how i feel, life, spoken word

BITE YOUR TONGUE ©

Tongues march forth in a wicked line---
From harvests of viciousness potent as wine….
Their stories can escalate to a viper’s bite!
Victims do retaliate in a set manner of ‘like’---
If not taught understanding and shame….
They will ‘too’ also walk bent and lame.
Bite one’s tongue a fore it splits---   
And the eavesdropper is made ‘deaf’ to all words!

The Ten Commandments of Self-Sabatoge at Work -try to avoid

1O. Shut your trap to avoid any flap
9. Do not be overly fraught by "conventional thought" (dinosaurism)
8. Know how to deal with Soylent Green People 
7. Stuff your ideas and different views-tip toe on the softest of shoes
6. Paperwork and procedure (I know) one can't bumble...doing so will make ya really humble
5. That being said, just go with the herd...bite your tongue people!  Don't say a word!
4. Don't think too much-like we did...that special group without computers as a kid
3. If number four applies to you, don't question the almightly computer (as I sometimes do)
2. Clever, innovative, challenging, and problematic...yes, DAMNIT!, sometimes it pays to be 
erratic
1.  You are not a weirdo, strange, or dumb...just follow the status-quo, and get the **** done

Ironic, yes; I am able to say this over the "net".  Contradictory, sure; technology is a
menacing lure.  Maybe good 'ol Ray Bradbury was right on the money, and this is all pretty 
darn funny.  Farenhieght 451, I think your day may come.  RIP books and innovation.

Through Eyes Of The Young

Sour lemons tend to bite your tongue
remember the very first time?
As seen through the eyes of the young 
sour lemons tend to bite your tongue.
Think of the fun of being swung 
remember how it felt sublime?
Sour lemons tend to bite your tongue
remember the very first time?

Remember how it felt sublime
watching snowflakes fall from the sky? 
Magical days when life was prime 
remember how it felt sublime? 
Always covered in dirt and grime 
there was nothing you wouldn't try.
Remember how it felt sublime
watching snowflakes fall from the sky? 

There was nothing you wouldn't try 
to help you find what lovers seek.
Do you recall when you were spry 
there was nothing you wouldn't try. 
Fascinated by hearts that cry 
you never considered them weak.
There was nothing you wouldn't try 
to help you find what lovers seek.

The Weather People Are Not Following The Script



I'd like you all to keep this under your hat It's a real mild winter where we're at Grass is showing in the park cross the way The sun is shining almost every day Something's got crossed but complaining I'm not Last winter was ugly it's surely a plot The weather people are not following the script Maybe they should all be repeatedly whipped Till they beg for mercy down on their knees For confusing us locals, trying to please We'd rather you tell us the weather will be fine Then we can blame you when the sun don't shine Your job, you can have it, it's a no-win situation Predicting the weather for someone's vacation It's really a gamble, just bite your tongue The odds are great, you're going to get stung © Jack Ellison 2014

Sticking Together

Sticking Together
By Curtis Johnson

For better or worse
For good or for bad
In sickness or in health
In riches or in poverty

On good days and bad
When she drives you mad
When he has made you sad
When nothing makes you glad

When you think speaking is a must
When you bite your tongue to avoid the fuss
 
When you are cold and she is hot
When he’s looking old and you are not

When you have money to buy a lot
When you must keep what you’ve got                               

To have and to hold
In the heat and in the cold
From when we are young until we grow old
Never to fold no matter what you’ve been told

Committed to the beast and the beauty
When it’s pretty and when it’s ugly

When your words are few
And no one cares for your point of view
When your opinions are right
You still must sit and stew

When you should speak up and be heard
Or when you are quiet as a mouse
Or when the home has turned
Into just another house

When the house is cold inside
And it’s not just you
When words like honey, sugar, and sweetie pie                                               no longer seem due  
When you have fits and fights and want to quit
It’s about time we all get a clue

Frienemy

You live life tit for tat.
Damn, I wish you'd "tat" me back! Just once...
Be there for me
As I have been for you.
When it counts
Why must things always "FALL" through?
Here's friendship lesson 101...
Hopefully, you'll get it before I'm done.
Try going out of your way
Without being asked
Try being selfless in this task
There will be no tangible reward or recognition
Gratification is in giving
Listen with non -judgmental ears
As I express my craziness
My pain and
My darkest fears
Please keep those hyper-critical opinions to yourself
Bite your tongue...
I'll let you know when it's okay to share
And remember... at least pretend you care.
Open your mind
Be grateful sometimes
Be happy when I shine!
Stop turning up your nose
Deeming others "GHETTO"
Based on stereotypes
You know nothing of their struggle or strife
Or how they live
Or what battles they fight
Stop listening to the hype 
You might be surprised
By who and what you
Get-to-know...
Kill your selfishness 
Choke your pride 
Hear my plead
Embrace it in stride
Now, YOU decide!
I have NO desire or need for Frienemies
We can be Friends 
Or we can be enemies...


Got a guilty conscience wondering if this poem's about you?
If you can relate then it's probably true.
Just thought you should know
Cause that's what real friends do.

Dear Nobody

Can you try and wonder what its like to be me?
Judged, rejected, and denied of sanity.
Could you try and wonder what it feels like to be me?
swollen cuts, stinging so deep..
Do you ever wonder what its like in my head?
Constantly wishing you were dead, dead, dead.
Have you ever wondered what its like beneath my skin?
One hundred percent effort, but youll never win.
Can you even fathom the wickedness within?
or maybe the desire to sin, sin, sin.
Could you even imagine the violence inside?
and the burning hate reflected through my eyes?
Do you ever pretend what you would do, if you were me and I was you?
Have you ever tried to be like me for a day, and bite your tongue til it bleeds as a 
mean to watch what you say?
Can you handle the difficulty in being soulless and cold?
Could you stand the pressure or would you fold?
Try to be me for a day and maybe you'll see why I am this way.

Mind Your P's and Q's

Get on your knees
Bite your tongue
Remember to say please
Because I'm holding a gun

You should know by now
I make the rules
Don't question how
Arguing is for fools

Watch me move
Just sit back down
I've nothing to prove
I run this town

You can try to fight
But I've locked you up
You won't see the light
When you act like a pup

Mind your p's and q's
Don't make a sound
You won't end up on the news
Your body won't be found

Not Even Jesus

My dear woman, I regret how you’ve been kept, 
beaten, held back, silenced and oppressed.
My woman, I confess I am upset,
how they made you bite your tongue when you express.
My dear woman, it makes my world feel blue,
when I think of all the things man’s done to you.

Some people don’t remember, you are the greater gender of the two.
I have proof.

-There’s something I must say,
don’t take it the wrong way,
but I hope everyone knows this humble truth.
That as you lay your head,
on this hospital bed,
the miracle that you are going through.
-Is one not even Jesus Christ could do.

-Yes, there’s something I must say,
don’t take it the wrong way,
but I hope everyone knows this humble truth.
I'd rather have no one,
but you bear me a son,
some say miracles are far between and few.
But all the time my miracle was you.

Some people don’t remember, you are the greater gender of the two.
because what you're about to go through,
is a miracle, is proof,
of a miracle no man could ever do.

The length and Breath of Time

The Length and Breath of Time

Yes, you linger so succinct my fellow of graying hue;
Like a ember coal is you as you fumble for a cigarette;
Eyes burning down to the filter; the very best of your
Soul is unbound with time, but you lie unaware in longing and regret. How shall we entrain
you? We who seek your solace, your collar stayed conformity to watch it fade and falter.
You stand upon the altar of time with folly pinching your
Belongings – how dare the Jester diminish the gifts he gave you?
A home, a shell of leather on your feet, a small itching on the back of time that all is
filtered through sublime; breathe it in my friend. It is coming to an end.
There’s a furnace deep within you where all acts do
linger fueled bright.
You stoke it day and night, yet no fire lights the
Architecture of the soul’s encasement, for it is billeted elsewhere, beyond the realm your
secrets have devised.
This should come as no surprise,
You can quench the fire, and scatter through the ashes
But find no answers there,
Another day,
Another week,
Another year…
Pull back that iron door,
Bite your tongue and curse the darkness
To light that flame once more…

Tongue

Listen! Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell, 
Your tongue is the enemy of your soul 
Death and life are in the control of the tongue
Your tongue can be sharp, ugly and venomous like a toad 
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
Let your tongue speak what your heart thinks

Listen! We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less.
Use your tongue more creatively and positively
Pick your words carefully as it has the power to make the sentence beautiful or ugly.....
You can change your world by changing your words... 
Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
Let your tongue be the fragrance of truth.

Listen! Every time you speak, you are either building up yourself for the better
Or you are limiting yourself for the worse.
Words carry power, therefore before you speak out, and speak in....Think!”
Don't live by your judgments only; live by your words also.
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceitful speech. 
Let us not misuse our words. It's an abuse of the tongue.

Listen! Whatever plans you think about, affirm it in your mouth first, 
Declare it and you will succeed in working it out! Words can be powerful!”
Words can be medicines; they can also be poisons. Words can heal; they can also kill...
If there's one area of you that the devil's got a hold of, it's your tongue
Keep your tongue from doing evil and your lips from spreading lies.
Let your tongues be a cleansing agents, peace maker and solution to misunderstandings

Listen! Place your troubles on the front of your tongue so that they taste sweeter.”
Your tongue is a steadfast loyal soldier in a great army of words, sentences, paragraphs, and stories
A tongue, if used the wrong way, can cause serious injury or even death. 
Tongue and expression plays a big role in twisting the words and make the life hell.”
Keep your mouth and your tongue - keep soul from troubles
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth 

Be careful with words you utter you might not swallow your own words,
but you might bite your tongue as well…….
The heart of the wise teaches his mouth and adds learning to his lips
Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt,
that you may know how you ought to answer each one.	

Do not be rash with your mouth, and let not your heart utter anything hastily before God.
For God is in heaven and you on earth; 
Therefore let your words be few.

Bite Your Tongue

Don't say the wrong things
Don't hurt others feelings

Just bite your tongue and 
Keep your lips sealed

Don't swear
Don't be insulting
Don't use foul language

Just bite your tongue and 
Keep your lips sealed
For its better to not get into an argument
Over a silly little thing that you'll regret later

wise words

words come together 
when the thought is deep let it fall to your stomach and speak 
caution with your teeth 
bite your tongue an adjective will come to life 
practice what you preach 
reach out to yourself 
let them know how you feel 
change roles and perspectives 
fold it and shape it 
you are the engineer 
you are a blessing 
go where no body has gone before
turn your demons into unicorns 
to the fourth dimension paint a picture with your signature
capture a though and spider web it 
wikapedia the heck out of it 
camouflage it with stickers nouns and predicates
you'll find what your looking for 
do from the heart and they'll see what your heart shows.

For better or for worst; For good or for bad.
In sickness or in health; In riches or poverty.

In good days and bad,
When he has made you sad.                                                         
When she drives you mad;
And nothing makes you glad.

To have and to hold,
In the heat and in the cold.
From when we are young until we grow old;
Never to fold no matter what we’ve been told.

When you think that speaking is a must.
When you bite your tongue to avoid a fuss.
When he is cold as ice;
And she is hot as fire.

When he is looking old;
And she is not.
When you have money to buy a lot;
Or when you must keep what you’ve got.


Committed to the beauty and the beast;
When it’s pretty or when it’s ugly.
When you are thin;
Or when you are fat

When you are as loud as a dog;
Or when you are as quiet as a cat. 
When your words are few because                                                            no one cares about your point of view.

and you still must sit and stew.
When you speak up to be heard;
Or when you are quiet as a mouse.

When the home you dearly love
has turned into just another house.
When the house is cold inside, 
And it’s not just you.

When words like honey, sugar,                                                                and sweetie pie no longer seem due.
When you fight, have fits, and want to quit;
That’s about the time to get a clue 02022007 cj PS

The Divide

For the love of God will you bite your tongue?
It's times like this that silence is golden.
There is a Hell, believe me I've seen it.
If there's a Heaven let's keep it a secret.
I'm bleeding out every word you say. 
Don't let a whisper slip from your lips.
Don't let a whimper slip from your throat.
I'm burning down every bridge we made,
Heaven forbid you cross the divide.
Darkness rises and the bodies hit the floor.
Blood rises from the depths and you open the door.
I'll watch you choke on every heart you break.
When did the diamonds leave your bones?

DECEPTION

thats the stuff that makes me pist, speak with my fist, caught in a myst of blind fury,

always blury, cant see straight, call it fate or a date with the devil, you put me on another

level that noone can relate, gotta leave the state and never look back, hold my head high,

whenever you see me cry its because i want you to die, look me in my eyes contemplate my 

truth from lies, in between the lines you take a breathe, credit for life just to cheat death,

nothings left when you do right, forced to fight in the night, chest is tight, soar like a kite, 

up up and away, i made it another day,

in a second it will all change, promises made are sure to fade, freeze the moment, you want 

to believe.

whatever they said was meant to deceive, just take heave or leave me alone, stone cold, 
born bold,

never too old to make yoou feel young, dont bite your tongue, guns will shoot, but only a 

blank,look at your face, i state my case, lets end this cat chase, and meet face to face in

an undisclosed pace, we race to the top, to win the prize, but if you were wise, youd take 

your time, quiet as a mime, that will not speak, you dirty sneak, just way too weak but serve

my cause well, to get to HEAVEN you must conquer HELL, go ahead and tell, i already 

expected you to tell!!!!!!!!    TRADER

Rejected

Disconnect all reality
Live by virtue 
In totality
Remain true

	Guided by this energy
	Consuming you 
	Like an allergy
	Don't know what to do

		What is anything worth
		Lies and deceit 
		Not a part of Earth
		Feeling defeat

			Yet still believing
			If I die young
			Better start achieving
			Bite your tongue

				Reckless abandonment
				Twisting moral constructs
				Nothing is permanent
				Self destruct

					Dark clouds hover above
					Surrounding you in madness
					Turn your back on Love
					Drowned by the Devil's wickedness

						**** piling up 
						Crucify your likeness
						Give up
						Filled with sickness

							Dead thoughts 
							Neglected
							Always getting caught
							REJECTED

The world we live in

When you speak with hatred it's as if you speak in tongue's. 
I don't understand  nor do I want to. 
Your mouth is cold and your heart is lost.
 Deception comes in any form. 
They speak with such conviction. 
That's why we believe their lies. so rare for you to bite your tongue.
 Do you think before you speak? 
Do you truly know, or do you even care. 
Judgment is part of our human nature, but it is acknowledgeable.
 So why not fight it. 
Why must you fall in with the crowd.
 Are you fond of ill words spoken of you? 
There has never been an explanation for evil only  an excuse. 
Do not defend your wrongs.
 Leave them behind and move forward with light. Be judged, do not judge.

Politically Correct

All day long all I do is shake my head
Over all that can and can't be said
That's okay but mind you never that
If it wasn't so sad perhaps then I could laugh

Insanity wears a worn out mask
With everybody being Politically Correct

With feelings now we're trying not to hurt
So bite your tongue before you blurt
Do you need more training down at work
With sensitivity being the latest word 

Know what you can do and what you can't
With everybody being Politically Correct

Don't call someone by preference or nationality 
It singles them out for all to see
And it could hurt their feelings very badly
And feelings should always be bad feely free

This is not a secret that should be kept
As everybody is Politically Correct

If you're out in a crowd and don't know what to do
Call up the  P.C. Police and they'll explain it to you
Take their thoughts and chew them as food
So you don't come across as being rude

You don't want them all to say what the heck
As everybody is Politically Correct

So watch yourself when you open your mouth
Be careful with what comes pouring out
The world's an angry cat to this lowly mouse
My hope is you never find that out

The common sense window is now closed on all bets
As everybody is Politically correct

Redo

Redo
Can you see it down the line?
Did you know it was mine?
Did you for see it all?
Did you stumble or did you fall?

Don't lie to me.
Don't pretend so I'll believe.
I thought you were better than that.
I guess I misread your Army clothes and hat.

Would you care if you had to?
Or would you really want to?
Would you dismiss it like you dismissed my feelings
and the unseen tears I had to hide?
Was that your way of saying you were through?
I bet you'd wish for a redo if you saw the tears I really cried.

Don't lie to me.
Don't pretend so I'll believe.
I thought you were better than that.
I guess I misread your Army clothes and hat.

Honey, you don't love her or I wouldn't matter.
You would have told me before you let this happen.
You would have told me why. 
You would have told me when.

Bite your tongue.
Cut off your words.
Aint' a time to tell if anyone's heard.
Ain't a thing to do when someone else gets hurt.

Don't lie to me.
Don't pretend so I'll believe.
I thought you were better than that.
I guess I misread your Army clothes and hat.

You'll be begging for a redo. 
Wishing you were wearing someone else's shoes.
You'll be pleading for love again.
Love that was never there because you chose not to care.
You were supposed to be different among men.
It wasn't just me that thought you were a better man.
The sad truth is you never could.
You never can.

Don't lie to me.
Don't pretend so I'll believe.
I thought you were better than that.
I guess I misread your Army clothes and hat.

How many of us have been begging you for a redo?

Faith

If you can keep the Faith,
When everything looks dark,
If you can look on the bright side,
When you seem to have missed the mark,
If you can hold your head high and smile,
When your heart tells you to cry…
If you can hope for a better tomorrow,
When it would be easier to sit and sigh,
You’ve got it!

If you can bite your tongue,
When others’ are running loose,
If you can say kind things about enemies,
When they have said unkind things about you,
If you can fall flat on your face,
And see the funny side of things,
If you can lose everything you have,
And, still wear a smile and sing,
You’ve got it!

Faith does not depend upon what it sees,
It wears rose-colored glasses.
It can sing in the darkest night.
Faith is not daunted by what others say.
It remembers that in time everything passes.

When Faith is confronted with the impossible,
It looks for “that way to escape.”
Like the ram caught in the bushes,
Faith believes- anyway!
It does not just believe in today.
Nothing is final-except Death.

Faith looks at the ashes…
And dreams of tomorrow.
No matter how bad things are now,
Faith says… “It could have been worse,”
And thanks God that He has helped-
Even in the midst of tragedy.
