LoVe

Love, is a state of mind
Love, how you feel inside
Love, can also be blind
Love, a roaller coaser ride
Love, the ultermate high
Love, for which we yearn
Love, you can never buy
Love, something you earn
Love, that's uncondisional
Love, like the marrage vouls
Love, that is though mutal
Love, here no kiss and tells
Love, takes on many a form 
Love, a feeling of self worth
Love, from the day your born
Love, no greater force on earth

If I could rap

 If I could rap, it would probably be about how the people feel
Not just any old crap, you know something with more appeal
Maybe this and that but something thats a little bit more real
Talking of the less well off, not the ritches of all the toffe nose

You might scoff, but not refering to women as *****s and hoe's
Some might cough, I could have people in stitches who know's
Yo! I might not be as thick as I look, one of those simple minds
Rifmic?, I don't know, is there a hook, read between the lines

Some might take the mick, I'd better then duck at these times
Talking about adversity and emotion, talking you are in rhyme
Kind of like poetry in motion, expressing yourself in every line
Discussing all the anachy and comotion happing at this time

Trying to get a mesage across but in a different kind of speach
Talking about faith, hope and loss, getting to those out of reach
Some probably could not give a toss, but I'm not one to preach -
like the future the present and the past tense, not any old crap

It would not be the sort to cause offence, not just this and that
It would be something that made more sense,oh if I could rap
      
         Written 2006 between july august probably to many cylibals
                           just playing with words  some words lines
                      became apart of poem I wrote called no deeper meaning
          written 2008 which is kind of like an introduction to everything else Id wrote
                                   and a much better write

Mother Earth

And now a massive hole in the ozone layer
Global warming, not really mentioned before
Like all the wild life and all of the agriculture
Fossil fuels were burning, destroying the core

Rain forests now fast becoming waste lands
Polluting the atmosphere with our toxic waste
And to think all of this done at our own hands
Before long there won't be any human race

Change's in the weather, changes in altitudes
And this only contributes to famine and disease
If we're so clever why not change our attitudes?
Perhaps were blind to it all, no one then see's

That the situation is only going to perpetuate
We are warned by mother earth, mother nature
We will one day pay for the damage we create
Is it worth doing something now? rather than later

MoThEr EaRth

To think what we have done to this plaint
And now it is fast starting to lose it's worth
But we have been warned by mother earth
Just look at the mess we have made of it

At one time we questioned global warming
Now something that's constantly talked about
Fossil fuels burned , at an extreme amount
The fact that we have had so much warning

Now there's a massive hole in the ozone layer
Yeah I know this has all been said allot before
But still destroying everything right to the core
Like all of the wild life and all of the agriculture

Rain forests now fast becoming waste lands
Polluting the atmosphere with our toxic waste
Before long there won't be any human race
And to think all of this done at our own hands

Change's in the weather, changes in altitudes
Which only contributes to famine and disease
Perhaps were blind to it all no one then see's
If we're so clever why not change our attitudes

Or the situation is only then going to perpetuate
We have now been warned by mother nature
If we don't do anything sooner rather than later
We will one day pay for the damage we create 



AGAIN A BIT MORE OF A POLITICAL AND UNIVERSAL ISSUE A BIT LIKE THAT
OF WORLDS STATE,  A JILTED BENERATION , AND ELEMENTS OF LIFE

A Sensual Awakening

Exchanged smiles and smirks
Yeah always between you and I
With the constant tugs and jerks 
Our emotions, they now run high

It's like that when ever one lurks
A constant murmur and a loud syh
When the supernovas and fire works
They are now beging to fill the sky

Enchanted, finding it hard to retreat
But then not the same when planed
Temperature souring I'm now on heat
And aided by the touch of your hand

I'm no longer in the passenger seat
Because your taking full command
The taste of your heavenly sweet
I'm cascaded to a far out wonderland

The smell in the air of pheromones
When were near , hearts now racing
Exploring all those erogenous zones
Our body's they now begin shaking

An echo through the walls our moans
We're two souls now again love making
The sound of our constant groans
When we share a sensual awakening

ThE MoOn

THE MOON-----------------------

The moOn, in terms of mythology
The moOn, goddess I'm referring to                                                                
The moOn, in terms of astrology                                                 
The moOn, that’s facing planet blue                
The moOn, the natural satellite  
The moOn, from earth it dose orbit                                             
The moOn, giving the dark light
The moOn, when it is then lit                                                                      
The moOn, an gravitational pull
The moOn, and mans many trips
The moOn, at times half, then full
The moOn, a total or solar eclipse
The moOn, keeps the same face                  
The moOn, reflected by the sun
The moOn, that’s in outer space
The moOn, in our solar system

A Shadow Of A Doubt

A problem to tackle, having this lack of pride
When you know dealing with a loss of identity
It's like that case of doctor jackal and mr' hide
Trying to contain my anger and not get angry

But at times you just want to scream and shout
A test of ones might, ready to erupt, an inferno
Here I am again consumed with so much doubt  
But gone the light as I still lurk behind a shadow

And looking for acceptance approval, I have tried
It's this never ending mission of self discovery
But any hope seems dismal or access denied
I can't remember the person that I used to be

But if one actually knew how I really then felt
Yeah that’s right its like that same old sinario
When still now I'm trying to figger myself out
I guess I’ve lost sight lurking behind a shadow





 
Updated A FOLLOW ON FROM TROUBLED SOUL
AND IN RELATSION TO A STATE OF MIND A STATE OF CONFUSION ECT
NOT IN ANY REAL FORM JUST HOW I FELT AT TIME STILL DO AT TIMES

Guiding Light

Through those times of madness
When I've no more energy to fight
When I've that feeling of emptiness      
You bring me up to the highest height                        

When ever I'm drowning in loneliness
And every day is just black and white                                                                                                   
When ever I'm in times of sadness
The day dreary, your my guiding light                     

But you did always believe in happiness              
Every one feeing happy, feeling all right
Was that perhaps your thoughtfulness          
A visionary who always had great insight

Then you did have such an awareness                         i
The memory of you here day and night
Like when ever I'm in times of darkness
And I can't see, you are my guiding light










I don't know wThis was also inspierd by an old song we we sang at school
here I was going with this write the words guiding light
Took from a poem I wrote called someone back in 2004
Trying to keep pattern as did with others such as WONDERER ,KALIDOSCOPE,SORROW,ECT
this poem guiding light is a tribute to a friend I lost tragicly back in september 1993
someone like no other she was GUIDING LIGHT iM REFERING TO HER SPIRIT THAT LVES ON 
AND GETS ME THROUGH THE DAY ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,written by myself DAVID SCOTT JUNE JULY 2012

Nephew -a tribute

                                  I love you to bit's with your constant banter
                                  It's like you always have me in fit's of laughter
                                  This child who picks me up when your sad
                                  This little dude who is just wild and mad

                                He's the little rebble always up to mischeif
                                The little devil loves giving mum and dad greif
                                Always ready to pouce on me the little rasscle
                                Maybe he just thinks I'm a bouncy castle

                                 Clinging to mummy when she's trying to talk
                                 Puzzled,he looks at me,eyes wide like a hawk
                                 His cheeky little face thats kieron, when I arrive
                                 Wanting to play catch or chase but he's only five
                                           
                                 Watching him frown, unsure of what to make of you
                                 He picks me up when down, Kieron my little nephew
                                 Through times of sadness,he never seems to anoy
                                 He just brings so much happiness and tears of joy


                                         Written(2002) a year after he turned five
                                       Updated 2012 originaly titled misdmeanour

Tweedle Dumb And Tweedle Dee

    What could I say about this fellow?
    Seems like a bit of a numb nut really
    But that's how it always was you know
    Always under her thumb, that was he
 
    I ask how could a person be that shallow                                         
    But guess for some that is just elementary
    And he'd wonder why he's always at zero
    No sense of wisdom or just to blind to see

    And now there true colours they do show
    Her on her bum, miss lady muck is she?
    But then what else could one say though
    It's just tweedle dumb and tweedle dee
    

  Aboutut a friend of mine I once knew
him and his gilrfriend always arguing with each other
     It was like a habit but also idea came from   
      the old saying a bit like dumb and dumber
        written by my self david scott,,,,,,,,(JAN2012)
