Ecstasy
When the pain labors in begging,
and the spirit is abused by ego stretching.
All wise words given not truly absorbed,
and the curriculum divine is distorted.
As pure lover, souls need to reach and apprehend,
all conditions of mental faculties have to descend.

I'm a Sky Blue Without You
Some say I'm a daydreamer
Someday, I will get better; whatever weather...
Someday, I will be...with you forever
Some say never, but never say never

I've been wandering in many ways…
I sway today, today

Stay firm in the Promise

Magnolia marbled magnificence resides amongst concrete 
But where history and metropolis meet
