Let My Quill Always Write Even If Unheard

A very wise woman once said I must write just for me, let there be no other reason for e x p r e s s i n g my soul- For I’ve l o n g e d for this passion to continue for eternity, and at my worst is when my journal seems to be full. LET my pen proclaim my adoration for only my heart, let my verses s c r e a m my insight for only my eyes to see- If there are souls who would like to t e a r my words apart, then I shall sit back and let it go very calm and quietly. No other can determine MY worth as a poetess, I am who I am and happen to appreciate my benediction- Tonight I will s o f t l y lay in bed and sincerely digress on the meaning of what my QUILL releases without restriction. I may not be famous or hold a popular moment in the light, I may not be the best at every l i t t l e thing that I do- I can sure be stubborn and I’ll admit, not always right, but s e r v i n g my internal purpose I shall ALWAYS continue. My pen loves to rhyme and my parchment loves my pen, I’ve become a woman with whom has great worth- Then please tell me why I seem to get so upset when, I am condemned for what I WRITE when f e e l i n g at my worst. I am a child of God who pours sunshine upon every word I write, if there are others who don’t see the value in my words- I will no longer be losing any more p e a c e f u l sleep at night, and I will continue to write just for me, EVEN IF UNHEARD.

Moons Distress

The moon's once effervescent shine now hangs low as if in distress as the heavens shower me with tears of the once bright celestial being soaking me in the hurt and sadness it feels I raise my head up, arms outstretched allowing it to pound my body my will can bring it some happiness somehow someway but the tears only fall faster chocking back any words I wanted to say bringing me to my knees I fall on to the soaked earth wet with despair slowing racing almost engulfing me in it's sadness I struggle to my feet not to be swept into the fast flowing current my reserve growing weaker I look for anything to grab ahold before my legs are pulled from under me swallowing me into the current turned raging river but all around me is already swept away "Why am I still here?" "Why haven't I been swept away?" when a few stars peek out and smile down upon me as if to say no matter the sadness or tears they are there to show me a light when I look over realizing an oak tree had wrapped me in it's leafy branches nestling me in it's bough It's canapy stopping most of the tears but not all I was so worried about the moon I hadn't seen my safety here Yet this tree was me but I hadn't seen my strength I hadn't looked beyond the moon to see the stars I am bigger than the moon more vast that's why the stars held my truth shining upon me showing me the moon will rise and fall each night but I will stand as a great oak nothing will bring me down!

Glimpse

I was a glimpse in the mirror today
Of the girl I used to know
That face so young and youthful
But that girl, she decided to go

Where did she run away to? 
Some land to be wild and free?
If I let her keep traveling on this path,
Well, what will become of me?

I saw her face in my older reflection
The sad smile that she's worn for years
itching to come out just one more day
As an alternative to silent tears

Where did she run away to?
And who did she think she could be?
Who knew that this worldly freedom
Would leave me so far from being free

Regain What Is Lost

Thoughts shattered are but memories fading Nostalgic are the feelings Yet at times they hold us back Leaving us with an emptiness that is nothingness Silent yet loud they can overwhelm one Take a chance at happiness Take all from this chaotic world Smoothing the wrinkles in time Washing away all sadness Do away with those dragons that burned you As they flew by without even a second glance Let the beasts find another soul to rip apart For they knew the damage they caused Let the monsters stay under your bed Don't allow them to be feared by you Fear not that what goes bump in the night Become your own knight and weld your own sword Save yourself the damsel in distress Regain what was once lost Yourself

Sometimes, it just takes some time

Sometimes, it just takes some time

Sometimes, 
we are born, with big dreams
Sometimes, 
we are born having none
Sometimes, 
we have to live, with our troubles
Sometimes, 
we do things, that can’t be undone

Sometimes, 
our hearts, may be broken
Sometimes, 
we find true peace and love
Sometimes, 
words are better left unspoken
Sometimes, 
you leave when you’ve had enough

Chorus
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
for all of your dreams to come true
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
to find the perfect one, meant for you
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
being apart ‘til the storm subsides
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
a little patience, while the future unwinds

Sometimes, 
the cards, we’ve been dealt with
don’t add up, 
and are just not enough
Sometimes, 
we’re anxious, and worry too much
Sometimes,
we’re blessed, with a tender touch


Sometimes, 
the money comes too easy
Sometimes, 
we may not have enough to eat
Sometimes, 
life throws us a curve ball
Sometimes, 
this life is bittersweet

Chorus
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
for all of your dreams to come true
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
to find the perfect one, meant for you
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
being apart ‘til the storm subsides
Sometimes, 
it just takes, some time
a little patience, while the future unwinds

Finale
Sometimes, it just takes, some time
a little patience, while the future unwinds
Sometimes, it just takes, some time
a little patience, while the future unwinds

I am strong

 I am strong

You may simply disregard me
with your arrogant throng
You may treat me with disrespect
I'm still here, I am strong

Why don't you like it when I succeed?
Why can't you be happy for me?
I walk on air, confidently
so, foot loose and fancy free

Just like hope and like faith
and the sureness of birdsong
I know where I belong...
I    am    strong

Did you want me to be shaking
so scared and all alone?
Feeling lost and so abandoned
with nowhere to call my home?

Does my happiness distress you?
Does it make you feel upset?
That I'm at peace lovin' myself
Livin' life without regret?

You may shred me with sarcasm
You can say I don't belong
You can hate me with your jealousy
But still, like iron, I'm strong

Does my confidence disturb you?
Can you not visualize?
That my words are captivating
and the crowds they mesmerize? 

From ancestral farmers sowing seed
I am strong
From hardy men of faith who believed
I am strong
I'm a true wordsmith, spinning words so true
weaving and knitting, as true poets do.

Never giving in to fear or to doubt
I am strong
I know what the love of God is about
I am strong
Building on the faith my forefathers had
I encourage the weak, make their hearts glad
I'm strong
I'm strong
I'm strong

You Are You

You are beautiful,
You are smart,
It's time to grow up,
And follow your heart,

You are different,
And unique,
Look in the mirror,
And tell yourself,

You will be you,
Maybe not a model,
Or even a beauty queen,
But your heart of gold,

That you have inside,
Makes you all of that,
And more to me,

I don't love you,
For what you look like,
Or even what you have,
It's your personnality,

And sence of humor,
That makes me glad,
Don't ever let someone,
Put you down,

Be that special person,
I know you can be,
For there will be someone someday,
To realize what they let go,

Because of how they,
Reacted to you so,
Be who you are,
Not what others want you to be,

I love you,
Cause you are you,
You have opinions,
And choices you make,

You will figure things out,
For yourself,
Just don't ever,
Lose your faith,

Remember that person,
Thats wrapped in your heart,
Give them your love,
For everything will be fine,

Just move forward,
One day at a time,
Your not super man,
Nor super woman,

You will be fine,
I hope this helps your morning,
To make you see I love you for you,
Someday will be a dream come true...

Stop and Start

stop looking and start seeing
stop seeing and start hearing
stop hearing and start listening
stop listening and start touching
stop touching and start feeling
stop feeling and start thinking
stop thinking and start believing
stop believing and start questioning
stop questioning and start watching
stop watching and start reading
stop reading and start dancing
stop dancing and start playing
stop playing and start enjoying
stop enjoying and start dreaming
stop dreaming and…
no, don’t stop dreaming

LITTLE MAN

Be not forgotten faith that bids me stay
When darkened hours come bringing heavy rain
Flood waters ominous rising delays 
Foreboding storm cease or I'll go insane
In selfish pity I could lose my way
Controlled by circumstance not dreams I've prayed
Be not caught up in struggles of this day
And miss the joy and passion of plans laid
Rise my soul hear the whisper of His voice
He'll calm the storm and waters will recede
You'll cross dry land so let your heart rejoice
You had faith to stand and now to proceed 
So stay the course your treasured promise land 
Find your child your awesome little man

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a Sonnet (yep, I tried one) about seeking and reclaiming a childlike faith to believe God, even in the midst of great difficulty! That awesome little man within.. is that belief that no matter what, God has me in his hands and I can trust him always!

BAGGAGE

Some people wear baggage like a hat in church,
Still others could conceal it through a customs search!
Me? It depends on the mood that I'm in,
My frame may be thick, but my skin's super thin.

As a child, dysfunction was all that I knew.
Violence and alcohol increased as I grew
And the things that I heard and the things that I viewed,
I packed them all up with my clothes and I shooed.

And when I would meet someone, I'd try to disguise
That baggage as noticeable as my big giant thighs.
"You're beautiful," he'd say, but I knew the truth.
I'm fat and I'm worthless, and I've got the proof.

Locked deep in my psyche, but not deep enough,
Some poisonous, invisible gas out would puff.
And heaven forbid he got an ********!
My baggage was foolproof as a form of protection!

If he seemed too perfect on any given date,
My baggage would whisper, "belittle, berate!"
And so I would treat him like a much lower class
Then turn and retreat with my oversized ***.

But one day I waddled into a cafe
So weighed down with baggage every step of the way
That I knew it was time to this load jettison
So I dropped to my knees and prayed, "Help me! Amen."

The baggage still visits me now and again,
And I have to remind it we're no longer friends
I'm married and he loves me whatever my girth,
Reminding me daily I'm the fairest on earth!!!

LET YOUR CHILDREN ON THEIR OWN

Maternal tears
Never managing to let go
Vicarious pleasure, vicarious pain
Wishing their life were easier
Wishing they could avoid the pitfalls
You see so clearly
The traps that seem so obvious
Wishing solutions were as clear to them
As they are to you
They need to live their own life
As you lived yours
Learn their lessons on their own
They want to express their individuality
They’re not mini versions of you
Or your second chance at life
They need to plough their path
Clear their own way
Create their own world
Responsible for their own consequences
As you yourself had to do
Your hand delivering prepackaged solutions
Cannot help since it’s figuring it all out
That’s the process of growing up

Never Surrender

I'm a grit teeth beginner breaking out the cage,
growing strong and fitter with wit coming of age,
squeezing letters out of lemons got me in a rage,
but this bitter will get better and steal the stage.

I'm out to lay a new way suitable to a renegade,
angrily squashing this yellow fruit into lemonade,
using the skin to pave a golden route in the trade,
writes rooted in the age of this transitional upgrade.

No scourge can submerge the courage I preserve under the surface, 
that purrs with an urge to hand carve words with power and purpose,
this marvellous occurrence undoubtedly surges to resurface, 
and repeatedly emerges delivering perfectly superb verses.

Attempts to pull curtains on my spirit,
only teach knowledge that I inherit,
I react and catch before impact to my merit
and you can't collapse the soul of this poet.

Everyone falls but my core's impenetrable,
and my mental resilience is unbreakable,
they can't remove something unshakeable,
trying is a mistake that'll make you miserable.

I've learnt to benefit from attempted attacks 
aimed to prevent the way that I vent and act,
catching the weaponry and adding to my stack,
I've a determination that I'll never let crack. 

I'll elevate as I stimulate with flow
and levitate the audience to show,
I'm able to continuously demonstrate
that my work is something to celebrate,
even though my opinion will make them hate.

Coming back is what I do,
don't make me come back for you!

A Tease

I say left
You say right
I say love
You say fight

I pull away
You then touch
I say more
You say too much

I say talk
You say hush
I say slow
You then rush

I then stop
You say go
I say love
You say no

I ask why this little game
You say I want too much
I tell you it's not the same
You say we can still touch

I ask why I need more
You say I don't it's in my mind
You say i need it seven-twentyfour
I pull away I'm not blind

You pull me back with ease
You tell me don't decieve
I tell you your a tease
You laugh then let me leave

Rap God

Steps up to the mic and loses his cool
acts like a fool, way too cool for school
flunked out twice 
wasn't raised to be nice 
but you better believe he can pay the full price 
with his back to the wall, he falls back on his own
just when everything blows
he's spitting lyrics so hard when it hits you 
you know he does have some issues but that isn't the issue
its part of a plan 
to be bigger than Stan, or a man who abandoned him when he was born
fatherless can't be stressed when he's reeling in all of the cash he can get
won't look back not the way 
gone for now but to stay 
won't leave us not today
he isn't going away
media says he is getting depressed but they only see lyrics
they don't see his feelings
don't you run now 
you can only see how 
a little support raised this kid to be a rap god who took an 
a whole army and won
so don't say he's done because he's winning not won
and his song has been yet to be sung.

Expectations

Wondering if you see the good in me?
its there but do you expect much more?
Ah tell me would you then want to be free?
Those expectations have yes killed before

You see in this life none can be that good
As in life we learn from each mistake
Ah to be that good I wish I could
As I am true, I've never been fake

Are our expectations set way to high?
What if its i who cannot measure up?
Sometimes I sit as I wonder and sigh
Does self doubt overflow my own cup?

What if I'm not as good as you think?
Would my tears then become my own ink?

O Lord

O Heavenly Lord I Love You,
Little angel sing words fairly true
God you created twinkling stars 
Lord, you enlighted our tiny hearts,
I wonder! How you made our mother earth
A cycle of death and birth,
How you made the lovely blue sky 
How you created the mountain so high
Where is the end of your creation
Lord you are the father of all Nations
O Heavenly Lord I Love You,
God never be far ever near,
You are in our heart and soul O dear
O Heavenly Lord I Love You,
Little angel sing words fairly true
I shall remain always close to you 
O Heavenly Lord I Love You,
Little angel sing words fairly true

Effect Not The Cause

You took time to show me what you can bring
The possibilities are in my own mind
How a queen doesnt need but should want a king
My past is not how I will be defined

Each morning I wake, I'm the sun's shine
One's life should be lived a little risque
Every life has its very own design
Question all, never just blindly obey

How a love can be more than poetic
Should be something others can admire
Although beauty is very copasetic
Strength and knowledge can also inspire

You were drawn to me despite all my flaws
I was the effect , not being the cause

got me thinking you love me

it like you care
i mean if you keep on
keeping on
i might whined-up thinking you
love me or something
I mean kissing and dance
getting those second glances
and the notes on my phone
I might whined-up thinking
you love me.
sometimes I think about
the way you might preseve me
and than I wonder if
I should look at you the same way
smelling your hair
acting like you care
it makes me wonder
asking myself what spell am I under
You got me thinking you
love me

Secrets

We all have secrets
We all have lies

Some of us the creepiest
Some of them ties,

That bind us together
That make us who we are

They stay forever
They never go far.

They stay in the subconscious
In the back of the mind

They sometimes make us nauseous
They even make us blind,

But some of us have a hard shell
Underneath is a soft core

No matter how we've been through hell
We still won't settle the score.

Even though we've been misjudged
Up, up we go

Even though our names have been smudged
We still roll with the flow,

I cannot begin to say how lucky I feel
To carry no evil inside

I hold my own wheel
I am my own guide.

The Lamb that can Roar

The Lamb that can Roar 

Stop being a lamb child!
Or you will get hurt,
Be the lion that disperses it power,
Do not show the dainty hoof, 
Show the paw with claws that tear through every verbal contusion,
Young lamb, listen to me now,
Now is not the time to be timid or shy, for now it is the time for you to fly.
Little lamb you have left your herd, 
Little lamb now you can be burned,
Little lamb do not let them shear you,
Be the lion that growls at the blade,
Claw your way through the pastures of maim,
Little lamb it is time to be tough, to grow a thicker wool that will not buff,
It is time to stop pretending little lamb, 
A lion can roar, growl, and bite, claw their way through the night.
You do not need a herd to protect you little lamb, you can protect yourself, 
All you must say is "I am."

I am strong.
I am brave, 
I am powerful.
Beyond maim.
Maim will not tarnish my frail hooves,
My wool will not be taken from me anymore,
I will no longer be available to the shearers who harmed me.
I am no longer Mary's little lamb, 
I am my own lamb,
I am a warrior, with thick skin,
One who cannot be penetrated from within.
For the time is now to unleash my claws, and tear through the holes that made barred.
No more little this, or little that,
For now I will be referred to as Lion,
Lion.
Lion is powerful,
Lion is respected.
Lion is not afraid to take a stand,
Lion will claw,
Lion will bite.
Lion will not let any razors, or blades come near his golden fur,
Come and try shearers, since you have found me, come try to take my pride away, 
Come try to strip me of my self esteem,
Come try and take away the only air I breath.
Come try to take my armor,
My mane away!
I am putting my beastly paw down, 
I am roaring at the top of my lungs,

"COME TRY!"
No longer am I minuscule, or a lamb that toddles about.
I am a lion with fire bursting at my seams,
I am concealed, I am protected.
No longer do I have tuft white wool,
No longer do I have a tight blue ribbon on my neck, 
The ribbon is shredded!
"I AM NOT VULNERABLE!" 
I AM POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE"
No one will try to knock little lamb down ever again!
I am little lamb, and I god damn will be respected by the shearers, and the world.
I am.
I am little lamb,
Wearing my.
Armor.

Note to Self

Don't let other people
Influence the decisions you make
Don't let other people's opinions
Hinder the risks that you take

Other people are not for you
They won't be there in the end
If they're not happy for you now
They won't be happy when you win

They don't want you to have joy
They only like when you're in pain
They want you to be like them
They want everyone to be the same

Not doing much
Same life, living low
No future, no aspirations,
No ambition, no goals

If you want to be different
You have to set yourself apart
You may hear their words
But don't take them to heart

Rise above the hatred
You know who you are;
You exceed expectations.
Note to self, you're a star.

You are one of the Greatest

 Twisted Strands of life; 
 Double Helix Deoxyribonucleic Acid.
 Blue Prints of complexity;
 These are none alike, and none similar.
 Diversification are Robins, Sparrows to Hawks.

 Yet, the most spectacular creation, we.
 Wondrously and Fearfully created.
 We have the potential to rule over this creation.

 A golden pen; stronger than deadly arms.
 Truth inscribed, bonded on black and on white.
 God given gifts with profound insight.

 Many are called, few are chosen.
 For those who have answered the call.
 Yes, could be you, as like me, 
 "One of the Greatest!"

The Moment Of Now

Tomorrow's not a given and
yesterday can't be taken back.
Today is your reality
and hope is what keeps you on track.

Live within the moment of now
comprehend the essence of you.
And ask yourself if you're happy
have your wishes and dreams come true?

Look deep within your fragile heart
has all its wounds been healed by time?
And have you experienced love
that can only be called sublime?

Take a break, step outside yourself 
and see the you that others see.
For while constantly performing
you see what you pretend to be.

We are all actors on life's stage
portraying roles written by fate.
And 'cause we memorize our parts
it's so hard to communicate.

Dark to Light

Poetry of my inner museum penned by keys, 
to express the prelude to my anxiety and agony.
A panic to release my frightened barbed mind,
no longer to live this awful innermost state.
Uttering my release of grim gruesome emotions,
 and my inner light and dark of my moon,
My secret knowledge deeply hidden and annoying,
opening the tunnel clearing all that is opaque.
Now optimistic I strive to remain victorious,
my oval eye to scan for my minds inner pride.
My right to build my own minds monolith,
no longer patronise and wound me in my plight.
In control, again to be whole not scattered,
in my life that was less fortunate and vindictive.
Avoid dark, a path threatening to destroy my soul,
move to the bright light away from the vicious, and
towards a new beginning, finally living and happy.
