Narcissistic Cliche
Living in a world that seems to judge
Lie, cheat and commit other horrid acts
Such as murder, rape and theft
I remember when people judged
The book by its cover, now the title gets judge before seeing the book nor it's cover

dont judge
Don’t judge a book by its cover,
Don’t judge a person by their looks,
They may love to stay home
And read a good book.

Looks are deceiving 
Piercings and tattoo’s,
To some people 
They may confuse.

If you talk to someone,
Looking different from you,
You may...Read More

Love can be fake

Mama you never told me,
Neither dad nor you aunt,
I was shocked mama,
How was I to know?
You never told me.

 I never knew that love can be fake,
I know the pain, so I can tell,
Just imagine, fake love,
Fake smiles, fake kisses,...Read More

Only to find out
I am not what they thought I was
They thought they saw me
Only to find out

If you ever drive through our small Oregon Town
You won't help but notice the house that's run down

My enthusiasm is rather mild
Stoic is my style

Somewhat blue and moody

True joy resides inside

It was to regard any human being with fairness and equality

Still Waters Write Deep
I There’s only a few things I take seriously

Cleverly spinning verses

Versing with an urgency
Invasive with my mental’s

Aquatic bloodhounds sniffing the water they zero in on lunch

Premium Member The Boy with the Freckles
I was enjoying my time in the sandbox
When a redhead with freckles climbed in.
The glint in his eyes left no question,
His mission was ruin and sin.

With my pail I had sculpted a castle,
But he eyed it with fiendish disdain.
His foot...Read More

All manner of things on Earth are tainted!
Water, atmosphere, habitats tainted!
A tough image you'll find I have painted!

Please don't judge a book by its cover,

Gratuitous evil you might discover!

Our atmosphere truly polluted!

losing control of life
Moved to Nene house thought it was a nice place
At first it all seemed kind of great
Got along with people

Lost control of life
Shagged boys, got drunk
Totally changed my life

ADVICE TO MY CHILDREN
Never trust a pretty face
Nor ever a sweetened tongue, 
Judge not a book by its cover
Nor a song until it's sung;

Nor rumours like bumble bees, 
Learn to listen to your heart
And to others fervent pleas;...Read More

Faceless Perceptions

Let’s not judge others by their looks
They are like those unread books.

Is he wise, kind, naïve or dim?

Do not judge one by appearance
Is it not deep ignorance?
Not looks but her...Read More

Say Sweet Sincere Statement
One may easily
Criticize against another; 
And say something sour
Even to a new stranger.

Severe sentence
May he judge at first glance; 
Many mistakes he sees, 
Attacking at any given chance.

Wise man says
Some sort of a reminder; 
Though nobody's perfect, 
Judge not the...Read More
