Carmen Electra

No matter where I've been overseas, the food stinks, except in Italy.

You are where you've been

You are where you've been.
Deciding that time would wait.
As you marinated in indecision.

You are where you've been.
Seeking the same acceptance,
As if this was a confirming reception.

You are where you've been.
Catching up with a made up mind...
Finding that times have changed.

You are where you've been.
And there is absolutely nothing,
That has remained the same.

And you giving in to what has begun,
Will not bestow upon you a patience...
From those empathetic with explanations,
Slowly participating in a show and tell.

That bling side of life you liked and kept polished...
Has been blemished by those ideals,
You hung onto too long.
And the fading of those times are gone.

You are where you've been.
Deciding that time would wait.
As you marinated in indecision.

You are where you've been.
Seeking the same acceptance,
As if this was a confirming reception.

You are where you've been.
Catching up with a made up mind...
Finding that times have changed.

No Matter What The Tactics Used

No one can be chased away from their self confidence.
No matter what the tactics used...
To show them to be full of themselves with ego.

One who survives being attacted for their appearance,
And identity...
To then crawl to their feet from being on their knees,
Literally and emotionally...
Those looking will rarely find,
Someone like this...
Hiding behind their discomforts to complain.

And any and all mistreatments are remembered to motivate,
Those achievements shown to be believed...
To those unfamiliar with the sight of accomplishment.
Those with a self confidence,
Are quick to show...
And not embellish from their lips to express.
Aware they are of where to place their footsteps.

No one can be chased away from their self confidence.
People like this are determined to succeed.
No matter where they are to ensure the act is done.
And...
No matter what the tactics used to address,
What they have been taught to learn to do at their best.

Christina Georgina Rossetti

O Wind, Where Have You Been

O wind, where have you been,
That you blow so sweet?
Among the violets
Which blossom at your feet.
The honeysuckle waits
For Summer and for heat.
But violets in the chilly Spring
Make the turf so sweet.

Hey Where Have You Been?

have you been to London
to visit the Queen?

hey where have you been?

we are waiting
for another round of drinks
with you

a glass of wine
a marlboro stick
some peanuts
another glass
of margarita

remember the rain
and your naked
feet on the
muddy ground

remember the
storm and the
ceasing of the
thunder

remember me?
i am my poetry
now i must admit.

No Matter Where You Go

No matter where you travel
No matter where you go
My love for you will follow
Just as the rivers flow


No matter where life takes you
Be it near or be it far
Look up into the inky sky
And find the evening star


And if that star may be the first
That you will see at night
Then make a wish, as I will too
That soon we'll reunite


No matter where you travel
We'll never truly part
Because you see...I carry you
Deep within my heart

Where Have I Been?

'Where have you been? '

Where have I been?
Giving myself the opportunity to grow.
Reflecting.
Dissecting.
And self examining.
With the doing of those things,
That will bring an understanding.

Knowledge obtained,
Needs the support from others...
For more of it to be gained.
And I embrace those,
Who have come face to face with change.
Those who comprehend,
Nothing accepted today will remain the same.

Where have I been?
Giving myself the opportunity to grow.
And 'that' which isn't doing it...
I have to let it go!
Without debate or loss of patience.

I am reaching for a seeking of clarity.
I've sought Sun.
I am not one comfortable in hiding...
When those cloudy days come,
To delight in disguise.
My vision needs to be freed of fog or smog.

Where have I been?
Giving myself the opportunity to grow.
And preparing for all kinds of weather.

Where I've Been

[Spoken]
(To all the youth in the world that thinks nobody understands...
Well I understand that)

It's been hard for me
Trying strugglin' in the streets
But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

It's been hard for me
Trying strugglin' in the streets
But where I've been- Is no longer where I'm at
And where I'm going- Is not where I'm stoppin' at

I grew up as a 70's baby
Brought up in poverty and sin
Makin' jokes at the crazy lady
Never acred how she was dealin' within
I knew all the words to
Micheal Jackson's album as a kid
And when it came to the biggest crusher
No he wasn't my man
At the age of seven years old
A strange thing happened to me
Before I even saw
My life had flashed before me
And I've got the mark to show
And it became a thang of beauty
So I gotta let you know
That my life

So Where Have You Been

As his legal guardian...
And at least fifty percent of the time,
I can say...
I recognized him on the streets.
I have come to defend his belligerent behavior.

Your 'honorship'...
We all know boys will be boys.
And we do the best we can,
To raise them to be irresponsible
And thoughtless.

Butchy D is no different.
I taught him the ropes.
Trained him myself...
To be conniving as possible.
He is not at fault here!

~Then who is?
Who is accountable for his misdeeds?
Who should we hold responsible,
For his total lack of concern for others.
His only claim to fame is fathering children.~

That would be his mother!
She was never there for the boy!
Claiming she had to work,
To make ends meet.
And I paid her twenty five dollars a week,
In child support.

~So where have you been,
Most of his life? ~

No disrespect, Your Judgeness...
But I've got my own life to live!
You think I should have given up,
My own activities.
To be there for these worthless kids!
I've got my own reputation to maintain.

~We are going to lock him up.
Rehabilitate him.~

Good!
That will give me an opportunity,
To get inside his head!

Where That Loves Been Gone

Sometimes I wonder whos making love to you now
Now that its been so long
Yes sometimes I wonder whos making love to you now
Now that its been so long
Well I dont know where or when you found out
Where that loves been gone
Remember that winter we went walking in the snow
Now its been and gone
Yes, I remember the winter we went walking in the snow
Snow thats been and gone
And right across the country still Ive got to go
Wherever that loves been gone
But any old way theres a smile on my face
Theres a smile that I just cant hide
Though Im missing you now like I never knew how
I couldnt forget you if I tried
Dont it make you wonder, but I wouldnt worry no more
Standing by the side of the road
Oh dont it make you wonder, but I wouldnt worry no more
Just standing by the side of the road
Into the night you just pick up and go
Youll see where the loves been gone
But any old way theres a smile on my face
Thers a smile that I just couldnt hide
Thoush Im missing you now like I never knew how
I couldnt forget you if I tried
I couldnt forget you
I couldnt forget you
I couldnt forget you if I tried
I couldnt forget you
I couldnt forget you
I couldnt forget you if I tried

Where would I be without the cross?

I went back to the cross again in despair
and knelt at the feet of Jesus there.
'It's me dear Lord, I've come once more'
'For I've been here many times before.'

'I know my child, ' my Lord said to me
'But I'm so glad that you've come to Me.
My love for you is so unconditional
you can come to Me at any time at all.'

'Lord, ' I said, 'How can this ever be
that you could show such love to me.
For I am weak and prone to sin
and I feel so dreadful within.'

Then Jesus said, 'My child, Look at Me.'
and I gazed into His eyes to see
the love of God shining from inside
and His arms opened there so wide.

Outstretched as they were in loving care
for that repentant sinner kneeling there.
Held out for me in embracing love
the 'agape' love of God poured from above.

'My God, ' my soul cried out in shame
as tears flowed from my eyes again
'Such love is undeserved by me
a wretched man of clay and misery.'

'The wages of sin is death' Jesus cried
and the law must be fully satisfied.'
'So your sin has been laid upon Me
and by my stripes you've been set free'

'My love is poured out for everyone
who comes to Me as you have done.'
'For there was no other way for Me
to forgive you and set you free'


**************


Where would I be without the cross?
Weighed down with my load of sin and loss.
Struggling against unnumbered foes
With no Saviours love and so full of woes

Praise God for the cross of Christ
For His love and wonderful sacrifice
For the victory that Jesus has won
For the new that I have now begun

Pedal To The Steel

I woke up around two
The sun was shinin on me
Pressed my jeans, cleaned my shoes
Filled up the ride and floored it
Top dropped down, vibe on cool
Lets see what flavors roamin
cause I dont wanna be with nothin and I dont feel like pushin
Nothin short of the red line, the spot is hot now
Call my crew cause they know how to party
Got to make sure Im smooth, dressed to impress Im bout it
All I wanna do is ride
So lets roll, you know,
How, we do, when Im in a state of mind to cruise its so simple
Put the pedal to the steel and let it go
Cruzin with my homies, youngstown in full effect,
Gotta go and cash my check, and find something to do
But for now were
Ridin,
Slidin havin a good time
Just so sublime, findin peace of mind, in my ridin time.
Radios playin my favorite song, tell my buy to turn it up
The day is short but the road is long, so lets burn it up
When the sun goes down thats okay, keep ridin away,
Its been one hell of a day, doin things my own way
Rap -
Lets ride I got the keys to the expo rimslow,
Lets go no matter where we go we rock the show
Radio loud drawing a crowd, partys at the spotlight
We rock the mic hyp from chi-town to y-
Town, we gets down look what I found some girls in a rover
Pull over got to get that number real
Quick. yo baby wzup I like your truck your smiles
Makin me blush rolling with youngstown
Is a must, thats right you know how we do
Me and my crew mob action relaxing and stacking
Them chips kel rock and them y-town kids
So throw your hands up and lets roll- come on yall

Right in Front of the Army

"Where 'ave you been this week or more,
'Aven't seen you about the war'?
Thought perhaps you was at the rear
Guarding the waggons." "What, us? No fear!
Where have we been? Why, bless my heart,
Where have we been since the bloomin' start?
Right in the front of the army,
Battling day and night!
Right in the front of the army
Teaching 'em how to fight!"
Every separate man you see,
Sapper, gunner, and C.I.V.,
Every one of 'em seems to be
Right in front of the army!
Most of the troops to the camp had gone,
When we met with a cow-gun toiling on;
And we said to the boys, as they walked her past,
"Well, thank goodness, you're here at last!"
"Here at last! Why, what d'yer mean?
Ain't we just where we've always been?
Right in the front of the army,
Battling day and night!
Right in the front of the army,
Teaching'em bow to fight!"
Correspondents and Vets in force,
Mounted foot and dismounted horse,
All of them were, as a matter of course,
Right in the front of the army.

Old Lord Roberts will have to mind
If ever the enemy get behind;
For they'll smash him up with a rear attack,
Because his army has got no back!
Think of the horrors that might befall
An army without any rear at all!
Right in the front of the army,
Battling day and night!
Right in the front of the army,
Teaching 'em how to fight!
Swede attaches and German counts,
Yeomen (known as De Wet's Remounts),
All of them were, by their own accounts,
Right in the front of the army!

Where Have You Been?

Verse 1:
Somethings funny bout your touch lately
Its like youve been touching someone else
And the sound of your voice,
Well somethings stopping you from being yourself
Weve always been honest -
And painfully so -
So tell me though I dont want to hear
I have to ask you
Where have you been?
cause I think I know the answer
And its not what I wanted to hear
Dear, where have you been?
Ive been waiting up for you
I dont want to accuse but
Your eyes and mouth they tell a different story
I dont want to hear it but -
The truth -
Where have you been?
Verse 2:
(well) I know its easy to lose faith
We look simply for a change of pace
And I know my moods, they go up and down
But when youre climbing walls, dont I stick around?
You caught me
On some little white lies
Its you who taught me
About silent goodbyes
I have to ask you
Where have you been?
cause I think I know the answer
And its isnt what I wanted to hear
Dear, where have you been?
Ive been waiting up for you
I dont want to accuse but
Your eyes and mouth they tell a different story
I dont want to hear it-
But the truth-
Where have you been?
Bridge:
A silent cry fills the room
I hear it no sooner than the words ring true
I knew it all along
Please erase this song
End this harsh reality
What did you do to me? oh.....
I have to ask you
Where have you been?
cause I think I know the answer
And it isnt what I wanted to hear
No
Ive been waiting up for you
I have to ask you
Where have you been?
I think I know the answer
Its written all over your face
No-no-no
No-no-no-no
I dont want to know - yeah
Your eyes and mouth they tell a different story
I dont want to hear it -
But the truth -
Where have you been?
I dont want to hear it - but tell me
Where have you been?
No...
Where have you been?
Where have you been?

Been Around The World

Hey yeah hmmmm
Well its been four lonely days and three lonely nights
Looking for my baby but shes nowhere in sight
See Ive traveled far and wide
Seen the finest places
What does it all amount to, when theres no familiar faces
[chorus:]
See Ive been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
I dont know where she can be
Been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
And I cant even find myself
Hey yeah
Oh oh
Well I dont know where I am
And I dont know who Im with
All Im hanging on to is that loving that you give
You see Ive lost my sense of time
And I got no direction
Sending out a signal
Been trying to get your attention
[chorus:]
See Ive been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
I dont know where she can be
Been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
I cant even find myself
Hey you know what Im talking about
I aint the only one whos feeling down and out
No, theres no spaces they clutter up my mind
Those wonderful traces
Suddenly theres no place I can find
My lover my lover
My lover my lover
Yeah yeah ohh
See Ive been around the world and i
I cant find my - my lover my lover
Been around
I cant even find myself
[chorus:]
See Ive been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
I dont know where she can be
Been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
I dont know where she can be
See Ive been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
I dont know where she can be
Been around the world and i
I cant find my lover
Been around the world and i
I cant even find myself
Well its been four lonely days and three lonely nights
Looking for my baby but shes nowhere in sight

What I Have Not Been To The Few I Loved

What I have not been to the few I loved,
the cost of what I am. Whoever that is.
And the poor boy happy ending
that was supposed to conclude in money
to redeem the aristocratic poverty
of a doomed childhood, scrapped
from the start as slavishly predictable.

I shone for a while, angry and bright
and university was an easy ordeal of guilt
while my mother washed floors in the Uplands,
and I went through culture shock
in my own country to learn that
not everybody lived the way we did
never further than twenty concrete blocks
away from the despair and poverty of home.

Three meals a day and shopping tours
to Europe, with a jaunt to Auschwitz
along the way. My mother would dress up
for three hours to go to the corner-store.
And it was everything I could do
to keep from laughing out loud
at the pygmies of pain in English Honours
who cried their eyes out in the library
because their mothers were social butterflies
and it was the sixties on the West Coast
when no one was suppose to live in vain.

And I remember the little wet doctor's sons
who used to remind me of who
they thought I was, asking me, at the end
of an advanced Shakespeare seminar,
at the end of a creative writing class,
after a three hour oral exam on Marlowe,
to sell them heroin I didn't use or deal
to make them feel, like the postcards of Auschwitz
that showed the skulls in the furnaces
and read Arbeit macht frei,
they were slumming with reality, lest
I forget despite how well I did in class,
where I came from. And the difference
was obvious and lasting. So many things
I had to master just to wear a plausible lifemask
into the golden future of the middle class.
How to sit down at a table and eat
with cutlery as if I were doing surgery.
How to relate to the trivializing of the poor,
listening squeamishly to the screening myths
of how the rich suffer at their hands.
How my mother with hands and knees,
cracked like lobsters boiled in bleach
was leeching them dry on welfare.

I broke up with their daughters.
I punished their sons atavistically
and losing my taste for trying to prove
you could find diamonds in the coalbin
of everyone's ancestry, and I could stand
eye to eye with the stars as well as anyone,
I ran with a wolfpack of ex-cons
who accepted me as a well-educated
one of their own. And through it all
I returned to poetry after every brawl
and threw everybody off my back
to climb a private mountain of my own
while my mother said do
what makes you happy
and went on scrubbing floors.

Emily Dickinson

Those who have been in the Grave the longest

922

Those who have been in the Grave the longest—
Those who begin Today—
Equally perish from our Practise—
Death is the other way—

Foot of the Bold did least attempt it—
It—is the White Exploit—
Once to achieve, annuls the power
Once to communicate—

Where bells no more affright the morn

112

Where bells no more affright the morn—
Where scrabble never comes—
Where very nimble Gentlemen
Are forced to keep their rooms—

Where tired Children placid sleep
Thro' Centuries of noon
This place is Bliss—this town is Heaven—
Please, Pater, pretty soon!

"Oh could we climb where Moses stood,
And view the Landscape o'er"
Not Father's bells—nor Factories,
Could scare us any more!

The Color of Our Skin

The color of our skin
Need not have shades of prejuduce
A tinge of biased thoughts therein
And hues of endless racial malice.

The color of our skin
Does not show our state of heart -
What we are, or where we've been,
Or the love we have there to impart.

The color of our skin
Does not show in our poetry
We write the human side we're in
And show the canvas of diversity.

We're thankful for these colors
And hope that people come to know
Whatever reasons our poems are for,
We are all colors of the rainbow.

My Gift To You

I can't change the world, by the waving of my arm
No I can't make the mountains touch the sky
But I can make the world a better place to live
By loving that bit of innocence in you Somehow when we're together, it just comes shining through
Just don't seem to matter where you've been
I can't make the rivers, flow into the sea
No I can't make the days go rushing by But I can make the world a better place to live
By loving that bit of innocence in you
Somehow when we're together, it just comes shining through
Doesn't seem to matter where you've been
