What You Always Wanted

Sometimes you want something
and you work hard to get it.
Thinking it will change your life forever
into something better than it is.
Finally, you get what you want,
that dream has finally come true
and you then become something you never wanted to be.
You then begin to wonder
if you wanted it at all.
Self-doubt creeps into your mind
and starts torturing you,
but you cannot go back out now.
You have what you always wanted
like it or not.
You have to live with it
for better or for worse.

You Can't Hate What You Love

Everybody has his or her own time in this world,
But you can't hate what you love.
Yes, you con't, love what you hate because,
What you like is like what you love;
And, what you dislike is like what you hate.

What You Need Is Not What You Want

My soul,
My heart,
My mind,
My muse;
I'm ready for your love.
My soul,
My heart,
My mind,
My muse;
What you need is not what you want.
My soul,
My heart,
My mind,
My muse;
So, let me know if you are also ready for love! !
Because, what you need now from me is not what you really want.

Thank God for not giving you what you want...

thank God
for not giving you what you are praying for

when it is not given
it is because it does not belong to you
because if given
it can cause you more harm than God

for God knows what is inside our hearts
his omniscience extends seven thousand years ahead
than your seven seconds

always thank the Lord
for he knows best
do not worry
do not complain
He shall give you the best for you

at the right time
and for the right reason.

What You Will Say Does Not Matter Anymore.....

WHAT you will say
does not matter anymore to me

you are
what matters to me

the winds come
and refreshes me
i am not listening
to its howls

the dogs bark
with so much noise
i mind the tail
that waggles for
my presence

you do not listen
to the sound of the spray
when the perfume
lands on your
neck

we do not care
in the same manner
the dying silence of the
night
neither do we notice
the idiosyncrasies of
our moans

we did what we did
we all moaned for nothing
but love

What You Did Not Say

what you did not say
was the most important part of the meeting
it was something
that i really understood
it was painful
but i respected it
because it is
the truth

what you did not say
was this love between us
that we keep
and take with us
to a certain distance

it may be right
but it has grown in the wrong place
it may make us feel good
but it says that it may be bad for everyone

who are not ready
for what it really feels

this shame of our time
as i see it will be the glory of the coming time

it is coming my love
all we have to do is just wait for the changing of the seasons
and the guards in the parapets

Respect Is What You Earn Not Command

Respect is what you earn not command
That is something some find hard to understand
You earn respect if respect you do show
From people in your life you've come to know

Of Respect or lack of we do read of and hear
Though 'tis a thing that cannot be born of fear
Of somebody who has power over you
In your feigned respect your feelings are not true.

Many may respect and admire the high achievers of the town
And applaud them on their journey to renown
But with the many some do disagree
Through different eyes we see things differently.

Respect is something you can only show
For one that you feel privileged for to know
And of any shackles true respect is free
That's how it is and that's how 'twill always be.

Not What You See

Love is not what you see
Love is bond and makes you feel free
Enjoy and be part of dreamy world
Always nice to be together in lovely fold

Don’t feel alone as we are one
We can make it nice one by one
You have your own way
But stay near and don't go away

Make it easy to take free air
No foul play and treatment very fair
This is strongest desire from female partner
As you will be her protector and Gardner

It doesn’t matter what you try and seek
It always matters that you remain strong and not turn weak
Love demands sacrifice at every turn
It is both the ways and mandatory to return

Why expect that only females may surrender?
They will have no say and merely fall under
For what has been unsaid and agreed for
So utmost care to be taken not to turn the relation sour

I have heard it number of times
The promises are forgotten sometimes
It may happen when tide turns in disfavor
Yet it should not be at the cost of personal honor

Leave it besides if it costs your relation
No bad emotions should be given any indication
Effort should be on to improve upon
The bond will not be lost but certainly won

Love Is Not What You Think It Is

It starts with a gentle feeling, then
It builds to a quiet yearning,
It might start to hurt, then,
You'll know all about the burning.
Feelings churning,
Mind exploding until you just,
You just drift in the warm glow,
Because now, now you know!

Love is...
Not what you think it is,
Love is...
A different colour every day,

Sometimes Love is...
A distant healing,
Sometimes Love is...
A detached feeling,

Love is...
Never wrong,
Love is...
The heart of a song,

Sometimes Love is...
The sound of a Dove,
Sometimes Love is...
More than you bargained for,
Sometimes Love...
Flies out an open door,

Love can...
Change you for evermore,
Love can...
Knock you to the floor,
Love can,
Bring you back for more,

We all have Love in our hearts,
The heart is the doorway to the soul, but,
The door is locked,
Love,
Love is the key that unlocks the door,
Love,
Love is the key to eternity,
Love,
Love is what will set us all free!

Love will...
Heal us all,
Love will...
Break down the walls,
Love Will...
Find you,
Love will...
Open our hearts,
Love will...
Hurt if you go too fast,
But Love will...
Always last.

What You Do Not Understand Seems To Be The Most Beautiful....

i have a bad voice
so do not expect me to answer your call

what you will hear
will be the sounds of coarse sands
clashing with pebbles
not the slushy sand that
Matthew hints
on his tryst with Eliza
on the secret bank
of the lonely river

albeit
what i ask of you is just read my letters
(or have time
with my poems
concealed symbols lurk there
like an old church
scroll

you will meet an old man
who is cantankerous
who drinks Tanduay all day
and night
and then forgets everything
nasty
and sleeps)

i do not ask for more
because i cannot stay that long
here
or somewhere

the more i put my feet on something stable
the more aches i have
i become sore like my toes
and they scream like
hungry puppies

the chickens feed on dung
and dung becomes justified
as a need
somehow

do not find
or look for consistency
that is passe
have familiarity with one that
is so unrelated like a metaphor
but strikes deep
in the heart of the most logical
connection

for all you know
what you do not get
or understand
at least for the moment
seems to be the most beautiful item of your life

and then the misery comes
when you finally understand it
and it is
bland, it is numb

listen to me
please, read my lips,
that is what the old drunkard
said to
the triumphant
and
startling turtle.

Not What You See

Wait a minute baby
I'll be right back
I just gotta talk
To a friend
For a couple of minutes
I see you looking
At the two of us
And what do you see
The oldest couple at the Mayflower
Esther and Me
I push her in the chair
I know she'd walk
If she could
She says "Take your pills"
As if they do any good
I'll bet you think
That what you're looking
At is all we are
Two old people forgetting
The way we were
Sonny, no one is
What they look like
Everyone's so much more
Sonny, no one is
What they look like
And we're not what
You see that's for sure
You should have known her before
You should have known her before
Legs she had legs
That made the guys drool
And her waist was as small
As your neck
And the face and the hair
And the rest of her
And when I look at her now
I still see her young and beautiful
She's my girl and I'm her Joe
And we're not what you see
In a minute baby I'll be right back
I just got some more to say
To my young new friend here
Esther just turned 80 and I'm 83
The oldest couple at the Mayflower
Esther and me
I knew that when I saw her
We were meant to be one
She says she didn't notice me
But don't you believe her
I'll bet you think that what you're looking at
Is all we are
Two old people
Stumbling through the days
Sonny, no one is what
They look like
Everyone's so much more
Sonny, no one is what
They look like
And we're not what you see
That's for sure
You should have known me before
You should have known me before-a

If It's Not What You're Looking For

by Kenny Loggins, David Foster & Eva Ein Loggins
What you thinkin' of?
Darlin' you've been with me every day
But you seem so far away, I know
No, it's never enough
To smile and say there's something on your mind
If you doubt my love
Know that it's here all the time
If that's not what you're lookin' for
If it's not what you need to know
And if there is somethin' more
Girl, I'll give you anything you want
Girl it's been so right
Nobody could ever love you more
I've never been more sure
Where in the middle of the night
I hold you near
And take your heart in my arms
Swearin' all my love
That's something you've known from the start
If that's not what you're lookin' for
If it's not what you need to know
And if there is somethin' more
I'll give you anything you want
If that's not what you're lookin' for
If it's not what you need to know
Know that you're free to go
Just be sure that what you want
Is not what you got
Hold me
Oh, hold me tonight
Forever
Here, my love
So you'll never
Fly away
(SOLO)
Gotta work it out
I'm tryin' to hold on to our romance
We've only got one more chance I know
So tell me what it's all about
Oh darlin' if there's still a way to your heart
I'll use all my love
To keep us from fallin' apart
If that's not what you're lookin' for
If it's not what you need to know
And if there is somethin' more
I'll give you everything you want
If that's not what you're lookin' for
If it's not what you need to know
Know that you're free to go
Just be sure that what you want
Is not what you got

For not what you are

I love you for not what you are
I admire you for not how you stare
I do not loose sight of you for a second
Watch colorful fishes swim in ponds

I love color in your wings
Beautiful melody and rhythm when you sing
It echoes in ears for only one thing
You whisper as if you are something

I hold you in dream
You are in form of sun beam
I can’t hold you for long
As light can not be hold and prove me wrong

You are my overall inspiration
Directly guiding and with deep relation
I sense it deeply when you are around
Lovely companion and desired to be found

It is all because of you
It is perfect and very true
How I wished it honestly and sincerely to covey
I knell down before Him to pray

I wish I am always with you there
When you move from there to here
I know it is your wish too
Let us be one and wish to do

I may not say “I love you
I will not attempt even to woo
My eyes may do all the rest
I shall sincerely try to be best

It is not time to praise
Not for any wishes to chase
It is simple submission in acknowledgement
I have nothing more to say or comment

I am sure of your full support
Even though we sailed without any rapport
You had all the faith in me as I desired
You get all the praises as I fully admire

It is not confined to few lovely words
This can be done by even little birds
They express it without being noticed
But nevertheless I stand for as promised


You may step out with me as true companion
As it is first sign towards making it as strong union
You stand firm in your conviction and opinion
I see no chances at all for any kind of friction

We may move ahead with whatever we have
In tune with new world and nicely behave
Everybody may fall in line with whatever we envisaged
New story to be written without being numbered or paged

The sun has always beamed bright on our way
We can’t deny any such existence and remain away
It is our fine hour and we should be all thankful
Nature has given us all we wanted and so must be remained faithful

It's Not What You Think

Lee Thompson Young: Well saving is the game,
Silverstone is the name... Secret Agent Status...
Day starts early and he's on the move
He has to have breakfast in his dressing room
Knock, knock 5 minutes to chew
Go to make up then it's time to hear,
Take 1, take 2 everybody's telling him what to do
It's a great big price to pay to be the man
So listen to what I have to say
It's not what you think when you see him roll
In the limo down the street baby you should know
That everything that glitters..it ain't gold.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson)
It's not what you think cuz when he's all alone
Reminices 'bout the past and he finds himself
Trying to go back home.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson)
He thinks about what he used to be back home
Everything was quiet, nothing really going on
Talking to his peeps on the telephone
Now his life has changed nothing is the same
He took it to the next level, now he's gotta keep it all together
It's not what you think when you see him roll
In the limo down the street baby you should know
That everything that glitters..it ain't gold.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson)
It's not what you think cuz when he's all alone
Reminices 'bout the past and he finds himself
Trying to go back home.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson)
(RAP) Silverstone is the code name
and if saving the world was a basketball game
only the stakes were higher
The only difference between me and MJ would be that I haven't yet retired
(still in the game)
Articles and track team the way that I inspire
Villans and thugs for hire to run like somebody set their socks on fire
Evil doers know by now to say,"aww man he's cocked his eyebrow
This cat's about to say goodbye now find a place to lie down
Duck and cover cuz he's sharper than a diamond cutter
Slicker than a stick of butter",
But even the best of the best can't work alone
So as far as sidekicks go Hawk's is one of the nicest and
Artimus supplies us with expensive and high tech devices
But in comparison my lop-sided grin is still priceless
The best secret agent that mankind knows...it's no mystery
It's not what you think when you see him roll
In the limo down the street baby you should know
That everything that glitters..it ain't gold.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson)
It's not what you think cuz when he's all alone
Reminices 'bout the past and he finds himself
Trying to go back home.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson)
It's not what you think when you see him roll
In the limo down the street baby you should know
That everything that glitters..it ain't gold.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson)
It's not what you think cuz when he's all alone
Reminices 'bout the past and he finds himself
Trying to go back home.

Not Like You

(d. peterson/s. hoffs/d. kahne)
Debbi
Busted down and broken
All in two
But you never thought
This could happen to you
Wake up, stumble
Trip and fall
You had so much
And now youve lost it all
How could you do it
Its not like you
To be the one to lose
Why did you do it
Its not like you
But Ill be around for you
Such a sad and sorry
Twist of fate
You tried to change
But its too late
If you ever find out
What to do
Well, then itll all
Come back to you

Not Like You

My hands heal
My hands grow
I shall rise too
This murder will cause you
In your collective conscience
This blood is warm
I leave struggling on earth
This soil is my witness
Why you fear me
I do not want to give you threats
That is cowardly
I want you to be free
If you let me be free
I can be you
But I don’t want to be so
I will linger on
I will with patience
I will give some more sacrifices
I will be
What I am
I will not murder you
I am not like you

Just tell Me What You Want

What are you going to do for love when you've got everything?
You really do make me feel like a natural woman when i am with you;
For, that's the way love goes with you in my arms.
Just tell me what you want and i will do it for you,
So wake up and live now up to this love that we share;
Like the mystic of tomorrow when, you are all that i do have in my arms.
I can see it in your eyes when i am with you,
And i do have the strong feelings of love for you;
So don't worry and do not complicate your mind always,
For i am with you and i will always satisfy you.
I want to taste the apples of your love and,
Just tell me what you want on this love;
For, this love of mine is opened to you alone.

So You Feel You Do Not Like To Work

something stopped when you said it
could be the clock of my life
or the chimes of some bells
in my fingers
when you said your lines, that you do not like to work
because the haiku
and the tanka are all there like children
waiting to play with you
they want to be written
by nobody but you, just you, like some animated kites
wanting to fly from the strings of your hands
now having air and tails

i feel the same, i see this river bed drying and i am like a dam
filled with water wanting to burst and flood
the earth
with poems
i am this cracking lips and inside is my tongue wet
so wet with this fluid
wanting to spit what i have inside me
but i am not that true
to this calling

the dam is fortified
and my flood did not happen
and my tongue likes to sleep
tired and so afraid
swallowing everything
and so
nothing revolutionary really happens

time can wait,
i need sleep, i need to eat, and i need a little rest and
silence tonight again
with the uncomplaining stars

Despair, i know you do not like the word

I know you do not like the word
Its color its scent, how we relate it to something black
And smoky and ghastly and ghostly
Some say, red is the color of despair
Others say it is like black coffee because
It does not make you sleep
And make you curl the whole day in
Your dark room without wanting
To talk to somebody and just be there
Alone by yourself, pondering, almost crazy

Not yet anyway, so you go on a compromise
Grey is the color of despair
Dusk, or dawn, or something dawning yet
Like an idea of a suicide unhatched
Delayed like an egg still undecided whether
To hatch or not to hatch and face the world
Of chickens

Despair, what is so big about despair
No big deal, it comes to you whether
You like it or not
As a matter of necessity, face it and state
Its name and stare and say, I muster this
Despair, I am its master and not its slave
And then, when you know all its particulars
You know what to do
Kill it and if it is not killed yet
Well

Well, well, just learn to live with it
Sleep and with, make love with it
And well,

Have kids with despair and call them
Their names: the usual, the normal and
The everyday. And just be prolific.
