Social Media Relationship

Nowadays people have social media relationships 
Where when a girl receives a gift
She automatically has to post it
It's like we feel better knowing other people know our business 
As if our friends on Facebook can solve it

We need to give back Instagram
Because it's clouding our judgement 
Trade FaceTime for me time
Because it has us in bondages 
Delete Messenger
Stop messaging
And let's start talking again 
WhatsApp taught me one thing 
And that's how to type an argument

Technology will be our greatest downfall 
Relationships fail because there's too many people involved 
And the more people involved 
The more problems to solve 
When we realize that these problems
Aren't even problems at all
            D.Christian

I never wanted

I never wanted to give up on you 
But as time passed, you made it clear 
That this was something I had to do 
It makes no sense holding on to something 
That doesn’t want to be held on to

I was so used to having you around 
That I felt lost without you 
Who would have known 
That’s over time 
I’d be better off without you 

Now I’m not here to argue 
And I didn’t come to fight you 
I came back for one reason 
I came back to thank you

To Whom It May Concern

To Whom It May Concern:


I have a bone to pick with you
Don’t take this personal 
But its become a personal issue
I feel I can relate 
Because of all the things I’ve been through 

For awhile I’ve been noticing that our young people are straying 
Lost in a world where in schools they can no longer pray in
Where teachers make less 
Than those who are the cause of their addiction
Should we blame it on ourselves 
Or should we blame it on the system
Blame it on the parents 
Or blame the politicians 
While we’re pointing fingers
We’re losing focus and vision 

Society is falling cause no body is willing to stand up
Our young people struggling to see where they’re going
While searching for a reason to hold their heads up

Our elders are quick to judge from the jury’s seat
When guidance is the seed that’s missing from our society 
Sentence them to life
Before they had a chance to live
Take everything from them
Before they had a chance to give

Police can’t find the shooter 
Because people are afraid to be labeled a witness 
The difference is the problem 
And the problem is the difference 

Can’t you see the problems are starting in the schools 
By taking away the Bible 
You’re taking away the rules 
You’re taking away their foundation on which they’re to build a home

We tell them Jesus is the way
Yet we ourselves aren’t following him
We tell them the devil is the enemy 
Yet we’re the ones encouraging him 

Now I’m not criticizing 
And I don’t mean to judge 
But I’m sick of being a bystander 
Enough is enough

Music Moves Me

This feeling is taking over me
My actions are the strings
Emotions are the symphony
And my heart beat is the melody
Music moves me
I'm a one man band
And I'm playing for a sold out crowd 
Filled with who I am
And who I used to be
Singing into a microphone of memories
A echo in the background
Constantly reminding me
My life is like a song that's stuck on repeat
Everyday is the same
And I'm just hoping for a change
                  D.Christian

Heartbroken

I know you won’t reply to this
I don’t even know if you’ll receive it
But if you do get this
I really hope you read it

I know your sick of me always texting you 
And I know I call a lot
But I’m so scared of losing you
Cause baby your all I’ve got 

I never thought I’d love you so much
And with each day I love you more
They say you don’t know what you’ve got 
Until you don’t have it anymore 

If I could make it up to you 
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do 
And I wish nothing but the best for you 
In everything that you do

Today I love you dearly 
Tomorrow I’ll love you more
And this all seems like deja vu 
Cause I’ve said this all before

It dont take much to please me

It’s not hard to please me
It’s the small things really 

Like replying to my texts 
Or answering my calls 
Even when your busy 

I don’t need you to post a picture of me on instagram for the world to see
Or a status on Facebook where you tagged me 

This relationship is between two people 
YOU AND ME
This has nothing to do with social media, friends or family 

We’re so busy building the frame
That we forgot about the painting
In love with the idea of love
And we forgot about the meaning

Let’s disconnect from social media 
And let’s reconnect with each other 
Let’s spend less time trying to get followers 
And spend more time falling in love with one another 

You see it’s not hard to please me
It’s the small things really

She Can Stand

She can stand on her own 
That's why they can't stand her
Independent and strong 
They can't command her
She stands out in a room
Call her Miss Outstanding 
Women like her are so demanding 
She's a one man girl
She don't believe in sharing 
Even though she's kind
Sweet and caring
She's been hurt before 
But you couldn't tell 
Her scars from love 
She wears them well

I dont love you

I don’t love you 
And that’s the truth
Love isn’t a word strong enough to describe how I feel about you 

The definition of love has so many meanings 
Some of which fall short from this spiritual urge surrounding you 

Passionate
Now that’s a word I would use
That strong and barley controllable emotional sense I get when I’m around you 

Compassion 
I might use that word too
That sympathetic pity and concerned feeling I get for all those around, who don’t know what it feels like to be loved by you 

Adore
Now this I find to be true
To respect someone deeply 
To hold close this treasure I see in you

Cherish 
That look in your eyes
To protect and care for someone 
And never leave their side

To find one word to express how I feel about you
I could never decide 
Instead let me show you 
One day at a time
       D.Christian

Dear God

God I’ve been meaning to write to you
For quite some time 
But finding the right words to say 
Ran the ink in my pen dry

I don’t want for us to argue 
This is not a debate 
Had my name drag through the dirt 
So
I figured you could relate 

Lately I’ve been having trouble,
trying to be nice 
To people who want to see me fall
They don’t want me to rise 

Now I’m not surprised 
I just don’t know how to react
Your teachings say turn the other cheek 
But my instinct is saying I should fight back 

I got the devil on one shoulder 
An angel on the next
My future on my mind 
But the pain from my past still linkers in my chest

Protesters on the streets
Protesting against same sex marriage 
Yet keep their mouths shut 
Against abortion and miscarriage 

Hands to the sky
Shouting to God in tears
Yet they haven’t seen the inside of a church in years

Now I’m not saying that it’s right 
Who am I to judge 
Who am I to point fingers 
When my hands aren’t clean enough 

So many hungry faces 
So many children dying 
So many people with the power to make a difference 
And so little of them trying

Children raised with no fathers
Mothers having fatherless kids
Children fighting for their lives 
Before they had a chance to live

We need you now more than ever 
We’re running out of faith 
We need you to intervene 
Before it’s too late

Im Not Perfect

I’m not perfect 
I’m far from it 
I make mistakes 
And when I’m near defeat I give up and run from it 
Afraid to fall in love for fear of losing it 
My emotions are what I’m losing to 
And myself is who I’m losing with 
Afraid to get up
For fear I may fall 
Fear I may fall so I don’t get up
I’m stuck 
Within myself 
Too scared to defend myself 
Too proud to ask for help 
So I melt
No one to blame but myself 
              D.Christian
