Conflict

Some say “it’s better to have love and lost than never love at all”
They also say “if it was meant to be it will come right back to you”
I say “love is the enemy the silent destroyer and not to be underestimated”
It is the ruler of your brain and the master of your heart 

Anything lost should remain lost; if its possession was of any worth it would 
not be neglected
Nothing is meant to be if it was not carved in stone, our future is mold by our 
choices.
Never get emotionally attach to anything /any one you cannot see yourself 
without.
For life is a journey and understanding should not compliment doubt.

Some say “never to burn your bridges behind you”
They also say “you cannot know the future without knowing your past”
I say “knowing your history is one thing but the future still remains a mystery.
 Some bridges are made to be burned while some weren’t strong enough to 
last
Not everyone that gives a helping hand has a good intention
Your friend could be as close as your brother but behind his aid manifest 
deception

“No man is an island and no man stands alone”, I remember this well.
Who made this phrase up, what do they mean and on what aspect? Please do 
tell.
Unity is strength I know this to be true and still what was made a whole can be 
broken in two
I say “anything you can’t do by your self leave it alone and be very careful not 
to make ones burden your own.


Some say “the youths have no hope for the future”
Yet what hope does the future provide for the youths?
And what’s the sense of being direct if it’s not all the truth?
Also what good is an opinion now if you chose to be mute?


I say “youths make use of your prime”
And ensure that you’re being paid for your time.
Never expect people to tell you the truth,
It would be a bonus if they do
People will say what they want also do what they want 
So I say, time is money so when you talk be quick
And when you come with your ideology or your tricks 
Come prepared for a conflict

Do You

Do your roses bloom
Where your garden grow
Do the flames grow brighter 
Under the mistletoe
Do you hear my heart beats 
When I kiss your lips
Do you burn your bridges
Never to return
Do you make mistakes
From which you learn
Do you hide your secrets deep within
In a fortress of steel, granite skin
Do you say never and never again
Or do you rekindle the love
Which brought you so much pain
Do you wonder in amazement
How the animals care for their young
And be a good parent
Do you wade in the water 
To catch the cascading drifts
Or do you work hard
To nurture your talents, your gifts
Do you keep asking questions
When you should try
Because if you keep asking questions
Time will pass you by
Nothing will be achieved
But an almighty Sigh
And you keep pondering
Why? Why? Why?

Nothing but a Childhood Dream

You ask me if I love you, I say I love you
More than words can say and I will until my
Dying day but I lie, it’s just a lie but I 
Don’t want to see you cry so I lie just waiting
For something better to come along and the
Day I can tell you goodbye...
I don't want to live without someone in my life
But at the same time if you can't keep me happy
Then just let me be free, I guess you can say I
Want my cake and eat it too maybe that's cruel
And someday I'll pay for deceiving you but my mama
Told me not to burn your bridges until you’re sure
You have found that one special someone, the one
You have looked your whole life for but I'm not
Getting any younger and so that makes me wonder
Will I ever, the older I get I'm really starting to see
People for what they are and it breaks my heart
But I can't judge anyone 'cuz a saint I ain't and
Sometimes just rotten to the core still I wonder now
Does anyone really love anybody anymore or is it
Just a fairy tale we've been conditioned to believe in
JUST, JUST A CHILDHOOD DREAM...
I can't speak for you but to me love is just another
Name for lust and then once you've had enough, it’s
Time to find a new plaything and the game begins all
Over again...
 Ok well what the hell on with the games, you’re just
An end to a means and a CHILDHOOD DREAM...
NOTHING BUT A CHILDHOOD DREAM!

Hits And Misses

7/4/16


Got to take care of business
From the start to the finish

Hits and misses
Above below and on the ridges

An unbelievable amount are religious
And superstitious

How much evidence and material lies among the fishes
And in some of the harshest conditions?
It piques curiosity and is rather suspicious

On the road to riches
Wishes
Shall be fulfilled by determination and wise decisions

During the entire expedition
You'd better pay attention and listen
Especially to what's important, if you want more wisdom

Learn from your mistakes, and understand the diffference
While still in existence


Don't burn your bridges
And act malicious
Because of your own greed and being way too ambitious


Out in the thickets
There isn't always crickets
(It can be completly quiet and silent, except for the crickets)

Always liked the look and scent of eucalyptus
And the same could be said for so many things, including hibiscus


Bless you this upcoming Christmas
Never once and until the end, I can not expect forgiveness


Anywhere especially due to different cultures and traditions
In my own personal opinion

Dream of Change {Chain in Couplet Form}

In my dream I hear a sound
Sound the alarm all around
Around and around we go
Go on a journey through the soul
Soul and heart do address
Address what is on my chest
Chest pumped and looking good
Good like a block of wood
Wood are you to blind to see
See that is no longer me
Me myself I am free
Free from what I used to be
Be no less than who you are
Are you not like a star?
Star that is shining bright
Bright like a neon light
Light that torch and let it burn
Burn your bridges till you learn
Learn to let your homeboys know
Know that from my life you must all go
Go in peace and try to see
See the peace inside of me
Me myself I now detest
Detest these tattoos on my chest

The Chain poem uses the last
word in the sentence as the
first word in the following
sentence. {I don't know why
it was removed from the poetry
forms}. I decided to combine
it with the Couplet form. {I 
guess I was bored}.

Bridge Burning Down

Well you ain't been nothing but a thorn
in my side since you came into my life
I thought by now you'd take a hint
I don't really want you in my life but
still you insist on coming over to my
house every dang night...
Well I know my mama told me not to
burn your bridges and so I guess it's
my fault you keep hanging around, I 
thought maybe someday I'd grow to
love you but there's still no love here
anywhere to be found so I guess it's
time to burn this bridge and burn it to
the ground, burn it, burn it down…
Well 'cuz you're nothing but a nightmare
in my life that just won't go away, every
night, every day, I just clench my teeth
every time you touch me and oh God 
Heaven forbid you try having your way
with me, how many headaches can one
person have til you realize I'm not in love
with you and I just wish to hell you'd set
me free...
Well I know my mama told me not to
burn your bridges and so I guess it's
my fault you keep hanging around, I 
thought maybe someday I'd grow to
love you but there's still no love here
anywhere to be found so I guess it's
time to burn this bridge and burn it to
the ground, burn it, burn it down…
BRIDGE BURNING DOWN, BURNING
BURNING DOWN!
