The Man of faith

The man of faith.
the man that will never has doubt in his mind; 
the man that will be called "saint"
because of his clean heart and kind.

the man of faith.
the man that will always stand on his feet, 
the man of hope; 
the man that believe he will surely overcome the tempest and always defeat.

the man of faith.
the man that always believe and obey, 
the man of meekness; 
the man that never wandered and never stray.

the man of faith; 
is the man with seal, 
the man of honour; 
the man that makes imaginations come to real.

I'm one, I'm two

i am one, i am two; 
i can do what you can do. 
i am three, i am four, 
i kow what it means to fall in love. 

i can dance, i can sing, 
i can beat hell out you in the ring; 
i am solemn, i am melody, 
that free the mind out of his recony. 

i am the wind, i am the rain, 
i am the young man in love that called the swain; 
i am the bread, i am the loaf, 
that fell from sky, above. 

i can cry, i can wail, 
i can shout to make you quail; 
i can walk, i can fly, 
i can talk till my siliva dry. 


i can sleep, i can slumber; 
till i wake up in the month of december, 
i write this in the month of november, 
to show my love to remember. 

that am one, i am two, 
i can do what she can do. 
i am three, i am four; 
i know what it means to fall in love

Oh winter

We have the right of living, 
and to speak, to stand in line and ryhme.
we all have what we believe in
about creatures, nature and time.

trees and plants grow in is season, 
river, mountain, stars and moon show us the sign.
we are naives, even though the cloud tells us the meaning
that winter was drawing nigh.

we prepared for this season for a reason, 
because we knew it comes between autumn/fall and spring.
every house can be cold and chilling
mama where's my jacket and socks we all sing.

oh winter oh winter.
your memory will never lost in our brain, 
the winter sport is always enliven
ice hockey, snowboarding and ski sprint.

HOPE IN LONELY

Feeling lonely in the boulevard,just like the cloud i wandered
when will i find remedy to the hindrance i wondered.


in my weakness,the side i sway,
i know it's not too late for sun to shine even though the sky look grey.


where's the battle here i will fight,
i will never give in until there's light.


you who try to halt the battle and bade me lie
with my mettle let me scatter the wealth in my hand before i die.

There's mountain to climb

There's mountains to climb
to be a star, 
there's rain afore
apperance of rainbow in the sky

there's town destroyed
before the land sound echoed
there's wall to fall 
to enter into land of jericho.

you have to be david, 
because there's giant to fight, 
you have to be like samson
before you heavy load can become light.

there's gonna be uphill battles, 
and sometime you have to lose; 
i think you gained more knowledge
about what you have sussed.

you have to submit and you have to bow
for he's your crown and what God has choose to be your lord, 
you have to be broken and re-made
there's new life to live in marriage.

it's true what God has joined together
let no man put asunder, 
the metals that welder weld together
why did it bend and lose i ponder.

wife submit to your husband

I'm in love with my pen

For the things that hurt your soul
For it you have no joy and love
Because it tear your soul apart, 
Nothing you can do, but to stand alone


I fell in love with my shadow
Because he walks with me when there's light in my darkness, 
I fell in love with my pen
Because everything written by it comes from my heart, mind and soul

Road to glory

In this road we make a promise
that we'ill never quail and never scary; 
for the glory to come and we hold
pillar of faith and to never weary

there's battles to fight, 
there's something of thine
there's candle to light
for the glory to shine.


there's something to strive
these dreams must not die, 
there's something to be alive
behind the bed you lie.


there's something to free
there's mountains to move, 
there's something to stay
and somethings to lose.


move keep going
stand and strong, 
there's something to know
in order not to go wrong.


no rosy road to glory
no easy road to fame, 
but patience has a power
not to feel the same.


these road we must move
with faith, determination and hope, 
dumb and don't be distracted by the noise in market
focus to achieve your goal.


in this road we make a promise
that we'ill never quail and scary, 
for the glory to come and we hold
the pillar of faith and to never weary.

Then I shall rise

Nothing in life that can make you overcome your hindrance, 
Except faith, love and hope
You may not have a penny and inheritance, 
But believes in all both
Once the rivers keep flowing
Then you shall rise

Neither illness nor sick has a power, 
But our sins can make us weak, 
Not all healers are liar
And all doctors are trick, 
But when we are still breathing there's hope
Then we shall all rise

We may hold a candle, 
And has no fire to light it
We may weak from our souls
And have no hope of rising, 
But when we still fight and never been slain
Then we shall rise again

Even though am in tempest, 
And i still face these struggles
Struggles that make me restless, 
That make me seems it was doubled, 
But when GOD lives still
Then i shall rise

Love me earnestly or don't love me at all

Like rare things not the secret be
i need somebody to come and set me free, 
it's value-less when it was vividly clear to all
you shouldn't has think of it, not at all

you told me love is beautiful thing, 
but all i can see is pain; 
it's love illusion i recall
i really don't know love at all.

if you don't love me let me know, 
if you don't need me let me go; 
don't only hold me not to fall
love me earnestly or don't love me at all.

if you really want me to stay
show me your love and care day by day, 
don't just show feelings through phone calls
show me your love or don't love me at all.

Tale of woe

Tale of woe is like plant that won't grow, 
like light that won't dimmed or glow; 
it wasn't well expressed when you still impoverish, 
but it venerable when you become rich.
