Obviously the first roles that you're proud of are the ones that everybody else liked too.

Celebrate the Holidays Like Everybody Else

How can 'we' combat the rise of crime in America?
I know you are shopping!
Preparing for the holiday season.
If you would take a few moments...
Your time will be appreciated!

'Just a second!
I purchased a couple gifts for me children.
Let me load them in the car,
And I'll be right with you, okay? '

Sure,
No problem at all!

'Well...
Let's see.
How can 'we' combat the rise of crime in America?
Is that your question? '

Yes it is.
And your response?

'Truth! '

Truth?

'Yes, revealing the truth.
In every aspect of our society.
And eliminate the image of Santa Claus,
Being an overweight benevolent white man.
Riding in a sleigh hoisted by reindeer.
Led by a red nosed one named Rudolph.'

Don't you think some folks will find your comments offensive.
AND, I observed you packing Christmas ornaments in your car!
Did I not?

'Look! You asked me a question and I answered it.
My family and I will celebrate the holidays like everybody else.
I'm a hypocrite!
Not a crusader.

Good luck to you.
And happy holidays!
Here...
Take my address.
We can share philosophies with the aid of some eggnog.
I've got to run!
I'm not finished getting decorations for my tree! '

But what about my question?

'It's the wrong time of the year to be serious about that.
Spring would be a good season for your survey! '

The Ones Who Dare to Face Deceit

Those who 'snitch' and/or whistleblow,
And represent uncommon correctness...
Rarely today ever shown,
Are resented.
And this for them is felt and known.

This is not a new revelation expressed!
This has been a way of life,
For those who have ever spoken out...
In an unsolicited truthfulness.

The ones who dare to face deceit,
Are character assassinated...
By those above reproach.
Who take it upon themselves,
To ensure others meet defeat!

But those eventually inflicting those affected,
Finally are the ones 'used' to become victims too!
When the misdeeds they do to others,
Come to cripple their activities...
In ways displayed the Creator chooses!

From the first moment that I saw you

From the first moment that I saw you,
you are constantly in my thoughts,
while your image lingers with me
as if you stick to my soul like burr-weed,
or like a virus from which I cannot be escape,
are bounded to me spirit to spirit,
leaving a impression in all my body and senses
as if it had been divinely destined to be so.
From the first time that I loved you
I am caught in my humanity
while I know that without you my life is meaningless
and no other woman I even want to be aware of;
without you in my life I am lost
and all of my days are meaningless.

Emily Dickinson

That first Day, when you praised Me, Sweet

659

That first Day, when you praised Me, Sweet,
And said that I was strong—
And could be mighty, if I liked
That Day—the Days among—

Glows Central—like a Jewel
Between Diverging Golds—
The Minor One—that gleamed behind—
And Vaster—of the World's.

The First Time That We Met

The first time that we met
There the love begun
The first glance of your's that made my heart born again
It diverted like a child like a fool
And it was so glad because of finding you
My heart is always there never will apart
Its with you always and having you inside so no one can see it
Its your love that has begun here in my heart and still living here
I thought that oneday can forget your love but how foolish we become when we fall in love
Your love that brought the life to my
Now its taking the life from my heart
Dough we are apart but I have you inside
Deeper so deeper of my heart
So no one can see you
No one can touch you
No one can take you away from me
The first place that we met
Do you remember?
Our hearts are always there whispering our names
How much I am thirsty to those days
They are always figured in my mind
Maybe you were just a sweet dream
But how a pity that we have to wake up from dreams

The first Day that I was a Life

902

The first Day that I was a Life
I recollect it—How still—
That last Day that I was a Life
I recollect it—as well—

'Twas stiller—though the first
Was still—
"Twas empty—but the first
Was full—

This—was my finallest Occasion—
But then
My tenderer Experiment
Toward Men—

"Which choose I"?
That—I cannot say—
"Which choose They"?
Question Memory!

First Love is You

It is never wrong to love someone else;
But make sure your first love is you.
You can buy your lover a gift that is cool.
But make sure you also buy something just for you.
You can whisper sweet words in your lovers' ear.
But make sure you tell yourself you are beautiful every time you look in the mirror.
I know when you love someone else you sometimes lose yourself.
And there is nothing wrong with love someone else;
But make sure your first love is you.

My First Kiss With You

my first kiss with you
was first class
like a mabuhay seat of the Philippine Airlines

when you left
my lips did not stay closed and vacant

there were more kisses in my life
lips upon lips like
sheets and sheets of paper on top of the other

but my first kiss with you
was ever the first unequalled

and when they kiss me when i am alone and lonely
it is your kiss that sticks in my mind

first class, the rest are nothing but
second rates, second hand, and less remembered.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Sonnet 32 - The first time that the sun rose on thine oath

XXXII

The first time that the sun rose on thine oath
To love me, I looked forward to the moon
To slacken all those bonds which seemed too soon
And quickly tied to make a lasting troth.
Quick-loving hearts, I thought, may quickly loathe;
And, looking on myself, I seemed not one
For such man's love!—more like an out-of-tune
Worn viol, a good singer would be wroth
To spoil his song with, and which, snatched in haste,
Is laid down at the first ill-sounding note.
I did not wrong myself so, but I placed
A wrong on thee. For perfect strains may float
'Neath master-hands, from instruments defaced,—
And great souls, at one stroke, may do and doat.

My First Night Without You

I'm driving home from work
Knowing you're not there
I used to hurry home
Now I don't even care
The sun is in my eyes
So I can't see
But when it sets down behind the
Mountain it's gonna be

My first night without you
My first night without you
My first night without you
Oh... without you

I sit here like a fool
Remembering everything
The way we used to talk
The songs that we used to sing
I've got to try and leave
The past behind
But my memory's so good
I think that I'm losing my mind

My first night without you
My first night without you
And I wonder what I'll do
Oh... without you

Will I be able to sleep
Will I lie in my bed and weep
What if I forget
And reach for you
Will I dream about you
My first night... my first night

My first night without you
My first night without you
And I wonder what I'll do

The First Photo That Memory Took

that moment when …
when memory first opened its treasured album
and began to make our picture of ourselves -

it belongs to all of us, to each of us.
it’s where each meets all, and all meets each;
more of ourselves than we have ever stopped to analyze:

that blurred, out-of-focus moment – was it
the pattern on the hood of our pram,
the strap around our kiddicart,
the turn of the stair,
the pattern of the bricks around the fountain in the park,
the memory of our first fall;
the lion’s head fountain on the wall?

was it not a person, of
those who peered into our cot, or lifted us,
simply because
we could already control those beings around us
with a dribbly smile, a vague wave of our hand?

was it the first thing that we remember
because it paid no attention to ourself,
but simply, was… was, outside our favoured world?

whether we ever open the album, or do not,
it sits there, unexplained,
holding some secret of a consciousness
beyond the theories of scientists and philosophers;
inevitably, ours

to be followed – some years after –
and this, we may deny at first
by that moment of a further consciousness:
when - as equally mysterious, unforgettable,
and often unremembered to this day -
we knew that we knew something
but did not know what it was we knew.

Thanks For all the Ones you Gave

Thanks or all the ones you gave
I shall treasure them
since I know they came from you
That you took your precious (precocious) time
to read the blather I've lathered here
for you
I know each one was carefully wrought
made especially for me
anyway I would be remiss if I didn't thank you
for all your trouble
and yes...you are always right

My First Impression Of You

Charlie tobias / sam h. stept
My first impression of you
Was like the sight of flowers in spring
You were a glorious thing to see
My first impression of you
Was something indescribably new
I stood there looking at you
Smiling at me
If you had stepped right out of heaven
It wouldnt surprise me more
I thought you were an angel
From heavens door
It may sound silly, but true
My heart just stopped
When I caught your eye
So overwhelming
Was my first impression of you

You Know the Ones

Aren't you tired of the folks who pass judgement?
You know the ones...
Quick to tell you how you should live
Always taking handouts from those they take for granted,
Criticizing the people who take their time to give.

Aren't you sick of those who waste your time to gossip?
You know the ones,
Glued to phones like weapons,
To add fresh lies to what they've heard!
They are nowhere to be found,
To assist 'you' when you need 'them',
But first to arrive to offer a discouraging word.

Aren't you fed up with their lack of time to listen?
Don't you wish they would grow and want to learn?
Even though they blame others for their troubling lives,
They will never feel ashamed,
To express their own limits of concern!
A repeated lesson you have learned?

You know the ones...
With their heads turned!

You Have No Need For The Ones You Have

Continue to procrastinate.
Do nothing,
But waste your time!
Advice solicited given to you...
Has been excused,
While you choose to make up your mind.
Time after time...
After time each time!

Keep your steps reluctant.
Make decisions you say are with faith.
Remain stubborn not listening to others.
And hesitate,
Sitting while you wait!
In a selfish self debate,
You salivate...
Deliciously,
When speaking of your fate.

Those dreams you wish fulfilled with promise?
With hopes?
Came by to knock on your door!
But you were inside,
With doubts you did not stop!
And those knocks you heard,
You left ignored!
And away from you,
They've gone forevermore!

There was a delivery that came,
Especially for you.
But those 'gifts' disappeared.
When you made it clear and obvious...
You have no need for the ones you have.
And the ones you have you fear!

They Are the Ones In Total Control

Is God Republican?
Or Democrat?

'Well...
First of all,
You know we've been told
He is 'suppose' to be honest.
Perhaps He is Independent?
That's how I conceive of Him.
I'm sure He is neither.
And yet...
At the same time all of that! '

Then why do those divided,
Come together to cry to God!
Whenever they wish their needs met?
IF He is the Oneness they believe Him to be?
Praying on their knees.
And leaving their political affiliations,
At church doorsteps.
Before they go in to plead for greed,
And other desired 'necessities'.

'Think of them as addicts.
Getting their 'fix' on Sunday.
However...
They may belong to cliques.
Or some other membership.
It's a status thing.
None of it makes sense.

Tell you what...
Ask those dudes on Wall Street,
Who they believe God is.
And His political affiliation.
You will probably get a stare and no response.
They are the ones in total control of your life.
So they would like for you to believe!
And don't fool yourself.
Like so many have done and still do!

And God?
He's got major adjustments coming for everybody!
Be you a conservative right wing reformist...
Or a liberal left wing change maker of giveaways.
The days ahead are nonpartisan!
We all will be getting a taste of them,
To nourish a depleted consciousness!

You wouldn't care to make a wager, would you? '

They Are The Ones That Others Envy

I have issues with people who leave people...
Begging on the streets with nothing to eat.
Or treat others like they're not even human equals.
And then look disgusted like they are diseased

No human being can teach a cat hygiene.
Nor can you teach a grown up to be clean.
Nobody should be teaching who to respect.
That should be a given and not a pick to peck.

I have issues with the snots with turned up noses.
As if they have scents of champion roses.
Ooo I can't believe these people are the ones who stink.
And-they-believe,
They are the ones that others envy?

Who made them runner up for fresh sainthoods?
Who showed them evilness was anything good?
Who gave them rights to think they beam like light?
And who told them they approve the Sun that rises high!

Yes I have issues with the snots with turned up noses.
As if they have scents of champion roses.
Ooo I can't believe these people are the ones who stink.
And-they-believe,
They are the ones that others envy?

They believe,
They are the ones that others envy.
And they believe,
They are the ones that others envy.
They believe,
They are the ones that others envy.
And they believe,
They are the ones that others envy.

I have issues with the snots with turned up noses.
And they believe,
They are the ones that others envy.

I have issues with the snots with turned up noses.
And they believe,
They are the ones that others envy.
And they believe,
They are the ones that others envy.
And they believe,
They are the ones that others envy.

Never Knew I Was Losing You

Mark:
I'm feeling so alone now tonight
Even though you're here by my side
Is there something on your mind
From the world you'd left behind
I feel as if the loved shared before
Doesn't wanna be here no more
And if there's something on your mind
There's never been a better time
To tell me
Bryan:
Do you love me
Still wanting me
Like I need you, oh
All:
There came a crossing on the road
If only there were signs to show me
Which direction I should go
I live my life with no regrets
It hasn't caught up on me yet
But I never knew I was losing you
Nicky:
I wonder as you walk through the door
Are you gonna hurt me some more
Never took you for the kind
Who would play up on my mind
Bryan:
Tell me what are you looking for
I can't play your games anymore
And when there's something on my mind
I will always find the time
To tell you
I still love you
Still wanting you
How I need you, oh
All:
There came a crossing on the road
If only there were signs to show me
Which direction I should go
I live my life with no regrets
It hasn't caught up on me yet
Well I never knew I was losing you
Losing you
Bryan:
It's not for the first time
That someone else has hurt me
By faking it too long
Where did we go wrong, yeah
All:
There came a crossing on the road
If only there were signs to show me
Which direction I should go
I live my life with no regrets
It hasn't caught up on me yet
Well I never knew I was losing you
There came a crossing on the road
If only there were signs to show me
Which direction I should go
I live my life with no regrets
It hasn't caught up on me yet
Well I never knew I was losing you
Losing you

Only The Ones Who Continually Count Their Blessings

Why is it when one is young,
Aging is something believed...
No one wants to get done.

I've had my share of bouts with doubts.
Praying my advancing age...
Would not be so obvious.
Or in public be announced,
To be shouted out.
As I made attempts not to appear,
Like I was not experiencing a mid-life crisis.

But,
I've earned this.
I had to awaken to admit it!
I've EARN THIS!
Every bit of it and proud.

I have managed to do some things I dared.
With challenges and obstacles,
To prove a faith had pulled me through...
Mucho grief!
With just some of it shared.
Not all.
I don't want to scare the few people I know,
Away!
There's already been an acceptance,
Of my mentioned dysfunctions.
Why blow it on a 'show and tell' demonstration?
Some boundaries should be kept limited.
And imagined.

Why is it when one is young,
Aging is something believed...
No one wants to get done.

I've had my share of bouts with doubts.
Praying my advancing age...
Would not be so obvious.
Or in public be announced,
To be shouted out.
As I made attempts not to appear,
Like I was not experiencing a mid-life crisis.

I use to fear aging before I understood it.
Only the ones who continually count their blessings,
Can appreciate a few aches and pains...
And associate 'that' with being grateful to feel them.

Only the ones who continually count their blessings,
Can appreciate a few aches and pains...
And associate 'that' with being grateful to feel them.

And I'll keep that repeated to myself,
As a reminder.
Sometimes this self motivation business,
Does get old and tired.
But a blessing to live to get done.

You never know who's listening,
When confessions are being made.
