Eight Sons

(These would include the younger brothers of Wounded Thunder, the character I made up in my previously posted poem). These were sons of Thunder Storm and “Flower,” from Wounded Thunder down to Thunder Bolt. “Bolt” was fast; the touchy one was “Shower.” And Thunder Struck was somewhat of a dolt. The cute one pampered by fair Prairie Flower well-deserved his name of Thunder Squall, and like another brother Thunder Shower, got teased, but even louder did he bawl! Both “Squall” and “Shower” vexed their brother “Cloud,” for Thunder Cloud by moodiness was led and always scowled at them for crying out loud! Great Thunder Head filled everyone with dread, but the wild son who proved the biggest sap came home infected. That was Thunder Clap!

The Cascade Adventures - Part 1

It's been four years since I've seen so much as an insignificant mountain creek. Been overburdened with comfort, now frantic with nature withdrawals, having to settle for photos found on Google Images: emerald pine trees, blue jays on limbs, moonlight cutting through forests, lakes the color of Windex-ed glass. It's much like drinking water that's been doused with Crystal Light... you may feel yourself becoming hydrated, when it reality it's only satiating your thirst temporarily. So you can imagine my joy when my best friend called me up to break the news.

"Monica, Brandon, Joel and I are gonna go backpacking. Care to join?"

the finality
of a cell hitting the floor -
shoe tying

Like a bunch of sardines packed in a can on wheels, we headed out to beautiful Cascade: the place where the Idahoan mountains aren't just paintings from afar, but close enough to taste. We weave our way through the spider-like dirt trails, as we each take turns changing songs on Joel's iPod. It's my go and I'm searching through the John Denver list, mourning the fact that there's over a hundred songs by him, and not one of them is Colorado Rocky Mountain High (the one song I could say fit my feelings to a tee). The menagerie of everyone's taste in music made for an interesting trip no doubt - even if Jonathan picked the worst possible jams simply for annoyances sake.

My first peculiar observation:

Humans have been making calendars for thousands of years (the first being more akin to cave drawings and stone tablets than paper). But as long as all that has been going on, the mountains don't care that August is expected to be sultry as November is expected to be chilly. Cause June took her first baby steps with a stubborn December mindset - a meandering way to say it was cold enough to freeze your nads off. The mounds of five feet snow made it all the more comical the fact I was wearing plaid shorts. Mother Nature wasn't going to be kind, I could tell.

like turtles
struggling to stand -
our packs full of crockery

It was breezy at first. We would practically glide down the mountain side, using our backpacks as a counter balance. The snowy counterpart to kangaroos, we were. The glistening flakes were thick enough to snowboard down - granted I never touched a snowboard, let alone ridden one. But after seeing this it gives me ideas...

Monica smiled for the camera, as I fumbled for my iPhone, a smile that didn't even require the forcible Say Cheese! nonsense. It wasn't waiting for the camera flash, but the other way around. Now you might be calling that rather pathetic, but I brought my iPhone along simply for the function of capturing memories. Angry Birds just don't compare to the real ones, sweet with lilting songs.

My second peculiar observation:

Google Images is an absolute horrid plagiarist; some beauty just can't be encapsulated despite all our advances in high-def technology.

The downward slope finally leveled out a bit, if only for a few minutes. Truth be told the path never stopped declining - some routes were simply more apparent than others. Our group of five walked single file through the trees, all basing our faith that Joel (a person who has been to the site once when the trail WASN'T covered in snow) would lead us in the right direction. And here's another interesting fact; this was no official trail, but a hike through the purest of adventures, unpredictable and unreliable.

crushing pine needles
with un-gloved fingers -
roaring rivers beneath the snow

The first time my whole leg collapsed into the fragile surface of the snow made me realize just how far above the dirt I was walking. I'd ask Brandon for assistance with a beet red blush on my cheeks - I blamed it on my fair skin falling victim to the sunny day. From then out I tiptoed with exaggerated caution, my heavy pack helping me just as much as it was hindering me. For even a foot drop had to be taken with a grain of salt. Everyone had to adjust to the added weight (except for Monica, with her light load of a sleeping bag, nothing else). I'd very ungracefully glide through twigs and pesky low branches, oblivious of my bare legs. In all honesty the cold didn't get to me, just the scratches of neighboring trees is where my concerns lied. At anytime I could have stopped the whole gang, beaming, "Wait a spell and let me put on some pants for crying out loud". Course that never happened, my clothes were in the bottom of my pack, and I was no where near desperate enough for monkeying around with that sorry mess.

slick slates
slanting down the cliff edge -
helping hands

Joel, with his redneck stubble, beams up at me, "Every hiking trip needs a little bit of adventure, don't rush it by any means!". That's the last thing on my mind - the first is whether or not that rock I'm about to put my weight on is as stable as she looks. It's a very roundabout route, and as questionable as it is, it's safer by a long shot than the first path we took - call it a 103 degree wall.



NOTE: Still working on writing out the rest of my trip to Cascade. It was my first backpacking trip and even though we only stayed one night, the trip is full of wonderful memories.

Rise Above It

A man who lacks a sleep schedule. In a home that houses not only him But his very own mother His daughter who comes equipped with Her very own mother too Honey girl rises with the sun and sets with the moon. Daddy is her best friend. Somehow, he is always there for her no matter What time may it be? For why does not daddy sleep? She will say one day without a windowed doubt. He walks All by himself Blue jeans, long sleeved shirt, tennis shoes Fitted hat with a straight pressed bill; seems… Worn out Hidden from (and) Visibly talking to no One foot in front of the other He walks All by himself At high pace; silently Casual, rhythmic by stride Jacketing immersed anxiety But he seldom is seen By anyone; in society And he is always let down. By everyone, in society Eyes roll, heads turn Cupped hands cover lips Sweet nothings’ whisper Secret seams; normal Tag-less numbers label Issues of social security Knock-knock Who’s there? Phantom shadows of sound Ringing in his lonesome Here’s this man He adores his daughter. Abides her; hopes of Something better than, this now He has an old laptop computer Pretty much everything He writes… Anything connected within A damned near perfect philosophy Portentously troubled, menaced by all means Principals prove morally taxing on him. Hiding from his own potential Running to the wind He becomes dehydrated through strife Overwhelmed by mourning gloom Tears seldom form to become drops. He employs his artificial tears with reckless abandon. A good gift idea for his daughter… Two other children miss their father as well. He has been estranged due to unfortunate circumstances. Enough baggage to claim life Even with his complexes With mint-mental ability Soul tight kung-fu reflexes Moral catlike agility At home, his very own mother Belittles him amongst siblings Reputed to be a worthless son and Dead beat dad As strangers look him in the face and Negatively judge… Eyes roll as their teeth lie… Normal individuals with Perfectly normal complexities Ironically riddled with the same complexity, Accept his complex Rationalized by outright awareness In this society, we all are subject to change. That’s fancy for lie. Lie about normal now and again Today find normal Just out of arms reach Tomorrow find perfect Becoming normal, as equals Normal is presumed to be a base lined standard. In the middle Normal! For crying out loud! You’re not normal? For crying out loud! Perfect is impossible? For crying out loud! Lie about your true self and that you are. Why? Normal becomes perfectly inadequate by direct perception Intentionally designated It is unlawful to partake in normal activities. Frowned upon Too much hype involved with perfection and The illusions we all are creating. Illusions that we all create Equally created in, when Born into this world without a choice Thereafter we are gifted with free will The ultimate inheritance of choice A perfectly normal, everyday blessing New life and A normally imperfect negative latter In death Life’s ultimate paradox The almighty enabler of self doubt and conspicuous minds Trust that we so freely lend out In our early years; youth Trusted belief, inevitably broken By none other than our dearly beloved Mom and Dad directly lie to our faces Brothers’ and sisters’ join in and Lie… Lie… Lie… Worse than he had ever imagined as This innocent trust is top of the line. An irreplaceable quality of man and Man strips away belief from man; Every single perfectly normal day This man who lives with his mother And loves his daughter He will inevitably break her little heart too. Paper thin differences, as he is only separated by His conscious awareness of such reality Dust pools from within his eyes as artificial tears Are bone dry and money is hard to come by Poverty drives this man, nearly to the edge… Suicidal and guilt stricken He cannot take his pitiful life away From that little girl She is the miracle of hope this man needs One man alone, is incapable of trudging Through the sands of This let down life At least Not without reason(s) to find his; The courage to provide Always and forever, Hope remains Within One of you; Or maybe two That One fine day He just may Rise Above It To Make dreams come true

FAMILY ISSUES


befuddled by mud puddle conversation
motivated to stay away from those in the throes of saving face
at a sprinter's pace 
saving grace
each time I grind with people who don't mind blindly trying to debase my name
I end up sulking in the walk of shame

families need to learn to move on 
be strong
but for crying out loud, 
without a doubt,
there shall be heartfelt apologies issued from both sides
this bumpy ride might take a little swallowing of pride, 
many bona fide hugs with love 
you may go through a box or two of fresh tissues 
to properly address the issues
 
we must stare defiantly into the eyes of resistance 
identify the roots of our miscues 
giving the boot to artificial rituals 
to ambitiously make transitions,
 stitch up wounds
switch up moods
shake up, move
to a place where faces are soothed by smiles and laughter
a fresh chapter  
an escape after disasters happen
an island where 
we realize those who actually matter 
yes, addressing the crash
without making the past our current address

i write this piece in peace, for those who may be dueling with duress
stressed by words or actions of those who you may regret not being able to completely 
love, respect, and/or caress 

----------------------good love
                        takes hard work

Hazardous Waste Knights

Spirited knights from a long ago age
Were transported to this century
Seeing as they had no foe to engage
They moped around aimlessly

Before their doldrums turned to rage
They sought out a job agency
That would strive to find them a good wage
Due to the knight’s urgency

But the hitch in this new age fable
Of which this story is based
Was the shocking headhunter’s cable
That proposed jobs in hazardous waste

It seemed they’d be worth their mettle
So their talent agent thought
Since they sported all that metal
Punctures would be less than naught

As their first foray in this career
Was not what they beseeched
Since hospitals for these cavaliers
Contained a plank with a leech

But they learned to remove harmful gear
Plus organs the size of a peach
And swabs and gloves and what others fear
Like sharps washed upon the beach

One day Galahad’s nose turned runny
Because his health turned frail
Yet what happened wasn’t too funny
When a needle slipped inside his mail

He cried out to his god
I think I’ve reached the end
There’s a germ infested rod
Dispensed in my rear end

Oh, for crying out loud
Yelled Lancelot to his friend
Stop acting so highbrowed
That little prick will surely mend

Yet while the knights gathered around
To strip Galahad’s chain link
They loudly sang to drown the sound
As that knight put up a stink

So the moral of this fable is
That lands on the other side
Albeit fences or era’s ‘tis
Not always greener far and wide

Zombies and a Sleepless Night

I was in bed the other night, sound asleep, when I was suddenly, awoken up.
Lo and Behold, there within my bed, I was covered by frogs, which had hiccups.
Now I wish this were a dream you know, as my eyes grew to, beyond saucer size.
I love my little forest friends, but these are the Weird FROGS, for crying out loud!

With a fear of moving, I gently ask, why they did partake, to join us in our bed.
All I got was closer snuggles, plus more hiccups, as they tried to hop, upon my head.
Enough’s enough, I did decide, as I gently pushed them over to my Hubby’s side.
I got up, turned on the light, and settled them down, as to my hubby, they did confide.

They said, monsters had chased them all around, until safety, they were bound.
Real monsters are here, and there, and everywhere, there’s Zombies all around!
Now, the Penguins and Dragon had been allowed a sleep over, just this very night.
I had allowed them all a TV with PG rated movies, which would certainly, be all right.

But Dragon wanted better one’s, so he stole into my older son’s collection, in his room.
In Dragon’s Lair, a party had gone on, with Zombie movies scattered, to his doom.
Before us, all the penguins had Zombie get up on, as they laughed at what they’d done.
But our weird frogs had been scared half to death, this had not been a good type of fun.

Bullies have no place in my house, so I addressed this, in a determined and clear tone.
They had to apologize to our weird frogs, before they took them all the way, back home.
It seems, the Weird frogs had called the penguins Barbarians, while we were at the Zoo.
But one thoughtless act, does not allow a second one, getting even is not the way to do.

So both had to suck in their hurt, and finally admit to their own terrible mistakes. 
That’s when the party really began, as new and lasting friendships were finally made.
For a week they played together on the shore, of our beautiful lake, in lots of fun games.
And the only Zombies on the Loose, to be found, were playful silly costume things.

Thoughts by a Horse Owner

Thoughts by a Horse Owner

A farmer milks a cow for all it’s worth …but
    a horse milks a farmer for all he’s worth!

Horses are an expensive proposition to say the least.
Try lavishing your love on another beast.
When you look upon a star and make a wish,
much cheaper to try for a goldfish.
But if you can’t afford it
when your dream comes true,
just flush it down the loo.
Or if you’re into recycling, eat the little guy…
And for crying out loud,
quit wishing towards the sky!

She Won't Let Me Go

She Won't Let Me Go

She won't let me go to church choir practice;
Sound like that I'm sitting on a thorny cactus,
And every time when I will moan and groan
She wants to leave me at home all alone.

She sings great paired up with Bob the tenor
Who is thinner and never has been a sinner;
God, mellow both of their voices did make,
Mine, windows and whole world would shake.

For crying out loud my voice became so bad
While singing had started a brand new fad;
If you could buy me one more case of beer
My deadly voice into space does disappear.

So you know what my new motto now may be;
When you buy beer and give it out for free
For me will be beginning of a new career;
Have no fear Horn is here with more beer.

James Thesarious Hilarious Horn

PS. And now this final situation I have to face;
Intended on sending another in the first place,
And category of sick according to latest skinny 
Is what to people this probably may be to many.

PSS. I will be reading this poem at next Poetry
Revisited Poetry Recital on 2d week of the month
at Arbor Landing in Shallotte, NC. When I do, I
am going to have everyone stand up and hold
their hands on their sides to support all of the 
laughing they are gonna be doing. Jim Horn

All of Ourselves

I am the eyes of the poor
Hungry and searching for more
They look on in awe
Of the wonders of beauty that surrounds them
But fails to embrace
I would give what I had
To make the feeling of worth come back
And the eyes shine
Once again
But giving material possessions
Would only help for awhile
To teach something new
Get a spark and a smile
And loving the intricate style
That makes us all individually unique
So I speak with compassion and say
In humanity there's got to be a way
To get past the human condition
And give all of ourselves

author note:
I went to 3 major cities, in 6 monthes time. I guess I was looking to appreciate what I had. 
I have done alot of work with homelessness in the United States, so, I became that way myself. 
My second month there, a man gave me a ride to the newspaper office where I was doing a little freelance. We talked along the way. It was nice since that day I was carrying my briefcase (that is my portfolio) weighing atleast 20 pounds.
He said that he had a son, that was into art. He wants to be a writer also. He asked if there was any advice that I could give. I smiled and said well, I would keep a regular job. If there's anything he is interested in, I'd have him do that, but if he keeps going back to writing, and he cannot quit. If it inspires him, makes him happy and that becomes his career. You'll know. 
All writers I know are kind of different in one respect or another. 
He began to laugh.
This verse may just be a few simple words, but they are penned from my gut.
It would have been nice to just sit and drink tea, for crying out loud, with a fellow writer that I dearly love with ALL of my heart and soul. Life...just gotta live it.

Golden talent

 taken away from my belongings, 
forgive me for crying out loud,
I am the one to fight back not to quite 
.

I am not about to go back my future is ahead not behind,
I resign my self to you God, please help me out.
I am done crying , I am hoping for batter things,
batter friends and future.

I am here alone fighting for my resurrection, lord I am your servant.
I surrender to you now

Asteraceae

I've been allergic to beauty
For 35 years 
In a series of diphenhydramine dreams.

Spring stings
And all of these tears
Are wearily ripening in-between screams.

The flowers look so happy,
I can barely see them.
Oh, yellowish green 
Cognitive haze.
Cloaking my brain
For a mighty good reason,
These trees are sappily
In love with my pain.

On solid screen doors
The taraxacum tours
My squalid green corps
Is sincerely yours,

I'm so dissociative
That I can be you,
And this hell is
As cool as life,
It's hard to live
But whenever I do
I'm just as well as
Wherever I might.

For crying out loud
For crying at all,
I'll eat the pollen
Until the fall.

Little Shopper Girl (for Deborah's Contest)

Note: To the tune of "Little Drummer Boy"


Come, they sold me, to Macy’s this year
The perfect gifts await for holiday cheer

I’ll push and shove my way through the crowd
Cuss if I don’t succeed, for crying out loud

Stomp on feet of shoppers with my heels
Clear a path to line's front as everyone reels

Bent o’er in pain they grouse, “Who is this cruel witch?”
And I scream back to them in a very high pitch

To reach fine gifts I create travesty
Then single-handedly grab the last Nativity

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
What have I done to find Thee
Done to find Thee

Sadly, I glimpse back at those I’ve attacked
And hand the manger scene to one farther back

The truest gift we find is not on the shelves
We’ll never find this gift within our lost selves

If we forget to share the holiday joys
With shopping schemes and ill-conceived ploys

Make way for kinder shoppers courteously
To find the greatest gift called humanity

Just leave the shops behind and visit your church
And bow before His grace from the pew as you perch

Baby Jesus is smiling at me
For now I’ve found Thee
Now I’ve found Thee

Whatcha Bin Smokin' Boy

Marshmallow dreams, puffy white clouds
Whatcha bin smokin' boy
Get back to reality for crying out loud
Whatcha bin smokin' boy

Peace on the planet, first time in history
Whatcha bin smokin' boy
Reason you're acting like this is a mystery
Whatcha bin smokin' boy

People loving people no matter their race
Whatcha bin smokin' boy
Got a big smirk on this time weathered face
Whatcha bin smokin' boy

Republicans and Democrats agreeing on stuff
Whatcha bin smokin' boy
Totally blown away sitting here in the buff
Whatcha bin smokin' boy

Now hang on a minute, there must be a way
Whatcha bin smokin' boy
Though men have failed forever and a day
Whatcha bin smokin' boy

Call me a dreamer, there's hope in my heart
Whatcha bin smokin' boy
Let's all set our sights on a shiny new start
Start smokin' peace and joy!

Enough Of This Frigid Weather



Enough of this frigid weather already It's March for crying out loud Time for the temps to start moderating methinks It's not civil and shouldn't be allowed When the hell is spring supposed to arrive It's just around which corner, I ask It's long overdue, it's stressing us guys out Want to lie on a deck chair and bask Us Canadian fellows are a hardy bunch We sometimes don't wear a hat When temperature dip to minus forty-five We go out for a stroll, how bout that Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a wee bit Minus twenty is a more like it, ahem Still frigid enough to freeze the balls off a statue Of Laurier, our seventh PM We WILL survive, us guys always do We're made of some pretty tough stuff But give me a break, this is way too damn cold Enough, is enough, is enough! © Jack Ellison 2014

Society's Role Models

We have so many role models in society.
You can choose from so many with such a different variety.
There are musicians, writers, actors, athletes, and so many more out there. 
But the people we choose today, I don't get, I swear. 

Some of these people's minds must be playing hooky. 
With all the great people out there some people choose Snooki. 
We choose people just because they are millionaires.
It seems like in today's society nobody cares.

On facebook, Charles Manson has 20,000 friends.
I don't get these people or today's trends. 
He was a cult leader and murder for crying out loud. 
But a role model to some and they say it proud. 

Some people say it is O.J. Simpson when he was a football player. 
Okay, but now he is a murderer, but I won't be a naysayer.
There are so many more I don't understand, but I won't even bother. 
I will just be puzzled and look up to mine, because mine is my father.

For Crying Out Loud

I'll meet you halfway 
up in the sky 
shes coming my way
oh my oh my
She smiles so bright
just like the sun
She makes me blind 
I cant see around

And I've been found
Sort of a hopeless cause
For crying out loud 
Im gonna win her love
For crying out loud 
Im gonna win her love

She makes me crazy
but in a good way
Im being pulled by passion
No I cant stray
Cant think with ration
and I don't mind 
that I ain't thinking 
Oh my Oh my

And I've been found
Sort of a hopeless cause
For crying out loud 
Im gonna win her love
For crying out loud 
Im gonna win her love

She's got her noose 
around my leg
by horses Im 
Im.. being dragged
Im in the dirt
I roll around
I should be hurt
but I've found-

And I've been found
Sort of a hopeless cause
For crying out loud 
Im gonna win her love
For crying out loud 
Im gonna win her love

*after writing this song I found that to loose for love is the highest expression of love. 
To win for love= honor, glory, and the girl.
To loose for love=nothing gained, you give up everything in love.

WHAT'S ON MY MIND

WHAT'S ON MY MIND

I have been looking for you 
I've had so much on my mind
but I can see we're losing time
I've been needing to speak to you 
but you are walking around acting confused
I know something isn't right 
by the way you look tonight
all night long we have been dancing around 
what it is we feel
I'm starting to feel very i'll
your eyes are playing games
everything is like an old sad song
I guess I will wait for the rain to come
for the right time to play along
you know I hate when you lie
so why even give it a try
so why don'y you just sit down 
and hear me out
Please Don't sought 
for crying out loud
as we step from across the room
I could see we have got lost 
that made my heart to ponder
I even started hearing the thunder
the rain is pouring down
what we once had 
somehow turned bad 
Oh how that makes me so sad
what we've been going through 
I can see why we are so confused
but I have been so abused by you 
I even felt so used
what does my love mean to you?
Did I ever matter at all ?
where you just waiting for the fall ?
so why label us 
why do you make a fuss about us?
I could picture it all
are love ended way before I even knew it
that was so unexpected
when you touched me and kissed me
my poor body aches
just the whole empty feeling
that you brought my way
I seen it all on your face
you have been playing your evil games 
you been playing the town 
meanwhile my feelings grow
I need more then you
I want to end this mess
I'm so tied of you messing with my head
the old emotional games 
why rush to get home 
why choose to take the risk
you ruined everything 
what love has to bring 
I wanted to love you 
but your love was to much
it cut so deep 
you always made me weep
I wanted to be near you 
when your love was once sweet
but now I want to leave you 
because all you do is make my heart bleed
not pretend what it is going on
but to face it and brace it
we had reached are end 
the whole thing about us keeps me on search
for the good about us 
but I didn't find a thing
I find myself hungring for love
but I come up empty handed
I don't know who you are
you are so evil and cold
standing infrunt of me so bold
my soul aches
Just the presence of you 
eats away on my mind
my brain is overflowing
my pen inks out what it is I bleed
you are making me feel so insane
I wrote my pains 
while you sigh in few of the lines
you read while you act as if you have no sight
you just know how to make me cry
Come sit down for a while 
lets talk about us 
I find myself probing for your love
but all I find on my heart 
is the marks you left 
you was once my love of the universe
but that love is no longer
what we had is now empty
all is left is the broken glass of our past
I am so alone and I find myself searching 
for something more.

Itty Bitty Garden In The City

Oh tiny tomatoes
I love you so!
I never thought 
I'd ever grow
Enough to even
Make a salad
But there's a few
To inspire this ballad
The planting season
Is nearly passed
It seemed to come
And go so fast
I don't have much
Of a bumper crop
My plants they sway
They droop and drop
But there's enough
To make me proud
Don't have a green thumb
For crying out loud!
My neighbors do
They're country bumpkins
Perhaps I'll try
My luck with pumpkins

krAzy kaRma

Hey Richard, you
want to bring on the crazy?
You want to know
the craziest thing that
ever was done to anyone!

You want to know
the craziest thing
that happened to me?
Seriously? Nah, you
don't wanna know, 
Do you? Really?
For crying out loud, why?!
With all the crazy
people running around
in this world,
You wanna know
what happened to ME?
You want me to confess
how I lost my wits?
How I once let
my guards down,
And got caught
in the down draft?
And got mired in a life
of mundane meandering?
And bludgeoned to my knees?
You want me to say all that
in front of everybody?
No, I don't think so!
Wait a minute!
You aRe Serious!
OK! OK!! Don't lose
your marbles, Man!
This is really THE
craziest idea of all!
Let me get this straight:
You want me to tell here
the craziest thing that
ever was done unto me?
Right?
Nah ... All right, OK!
But, it's only between
You and Me ................
.................................
I GOT MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!

Bullet In The Chamber

Nobody can prevent,all you can do for crying out loud 
is join in its allowed.Allah ain't laughing.Ha Ha He
He.Every single signal of communication..Dangerous
like a bullet in the chamber.I am on am to fm
stereo;From digital,antenna,sattelite,also created HD
radio;I control ohms to make people say um.Day until
p.m.Each day I am if I wasn't why would I say I am.I have
no direction;I use every english word that I have
constructed.I use these commands at my selection.
Which gives my govt. the U.S.A. & I the biggest
erection.Never final. People should do a bowel
movement. I never throw in the white towel.I am after
the crown.All I ask is for is to form an original
thought. I faught and fought for a form of
thought.The f curse word is derived from forming.I wil get
laid,now a days,to hatch an egg.Unity= YoU aNd  I
Tea;whY not add lemon plus milk; and also "Equal"
and/or "Splenda".Its slpendid that I precisely select
the price of products."Equals" I did and still do.Is
dictatorship all right with you? I ma(ke it h)appen  I keep using a cue of clues to 
lead you; to lueryou to whom is the #1 world leader. This sole controllers' soul is 
sold on dvd's and cd's around the globe. I am used, misused, and abused.I 
mention a mansion. I am so intelligent. I will pop a tent. Earth is my brain. Every 
day before I wake I feel the power, I have explained I need a interview to show the 
world my inner view. The world will maintain on how I feel. I control mother nature 
so I wander maybe people could show me a sign of life, I take over the tv screen 
and the reality scene. I will reproduce the same as before during this era of 
errors until I am confronted. The world is insane, and I will reproduct at random 
who fills the shoes of who did it before. But who cares, and/or who would take 
action. All people do is believe and watch what I work hard to do. I am a ghost/ 
holy spirited person. This present tense. Is the future that I am physically in. My 
supervision controlled environment. I am the creature that makes the future.

WHERE IS THE LOVE

WHERE IS THE LOVE

Where is the love 
on this senseless night
why does everyone need to fight ?
it bothers me the way you look at me 
the way you move around 
like an crazy old clown 
where is the knowledge in this room
why are you acting so confused ?
I think it's senseless don't you ?
I hear the sound of deep emotions 
what happen to true devotions
the way you are acting tonight
I think you have lost your mind
another time 
what is wrong with you ?
your friends act as if they don't want you 
so why come to me and tell me your bad days
I don't need no more gray's 
look at them 
they'd rather be out playing the town
making you like like a senseless clown
for crying out loud move about 
your drowwning in your own sins
and you are being let down by your friends
I don't need this agin
I'm no dummy 
you been playing your games again
But I will keep my stringth without you
so go and move along 
while I play a new song
I found my string deep within
I wont let you back in 
jUST to beat me down again
you know this part
when the heart is frozen 
throwing the towle on in
there is no more motive
for me to take it all in
I run my life in fear 
but not this time
what I once known 
I left that darkness behind
I made up my mind
you are a savage of a monster 
that loves playing games in the night
you mock the good 
to bring on what isn't right
the night will always hunt you 
just wait and see
So, move along and get away from me
Because every word I hear from you are lies
go on and let me live my life
I don't need your darkness
I don't need to clean up your mess
and I will no further serve you mind
don't look at me like you are blind
I see the cure in your eyes
but your not going to play me this time
and by the way remove your pride
you are a beat up clown who has lost his mind
think I was going to take you back another time
I have been trying to shave the sheep 
from wolves like you.

The Critically Acclaimed

The fault finding
Pertaining to thought
Introspect do you think?
As when thinking
for crying out loud
Are you rationing it?
Object of thought
judging for oneself
How is it critical?
