Better Than It Was

Once I had it all planned out
My dirty fingers moved about
To make a mess of everything around me
I dont claim to know my way
I still run in circles everyday
Running around half blind
Life can be unkind
But its better than it was
Its better than it was
I complain very little because
Its better than it was
I get to remembering
We had a lot more money then
To make a mess of everything around us
Now the money comes and goes a bit faster
Then my confidence grows
Everybody knows
There aint nothing new about money woes
But its better than it was
Its better than it was
Its better than it was
Its better than we ever could have
Wished it to before
It was bad a while ago
Better this I know
Its better than it was
Better than it was
I complain very little because
Its better than it was
Better than it was

Maybe I Know My History A Little Bit Better Than You Do (In Answer To Sipho Sepamla)

Maybe I know my history
a little bit better than you do.
My friend, you are talking
about stories being heard
around coal-stoves
concerning animals
and no real facts
are expressed in your poem.

I know when my ancestor Joost Strijdom
arrived in the Cape of Good Hope in May 1678,
that I descend from the lovely brave Maryna Ras,
when your ancestors
were migrating from a place called eMbo
at the big African lakes under
leadership of chief Dlamini
and later under chief Nguni.

I know how my ancestors battled
against wild beasts, fought the zulu-impi
at Blood River
and overcame by the help of
the almighty God
and that I would not have existed
if they died at the hands of the Zulus.

I know how my ancestors build
farms, churches and houses
while yours were living
in thatched grass huts.

I know how my great grandfathers
and one of my grandfathers
was enveloped in a war against the British,
how they survived
and how my great grandmother
died in a British concentration camp.

I have even faced Cubans
under Soviet command
in the largest mechanised battle in Africa,
apart from those in the Second World War
and we had a decisive victory
that is now being denied
while history books are being rewritten
and fiction is creeping in
and maybe the new propaganda, the lies
of the new history suits you far better.

Better Than Expected

I am feeling better than expected, on a journey I haven’t selected,
An unexpected journey in this life, that could bring pain and strife,
Not fully aware what it’s all about; I may even struggle with doubt,
Concerning The Lord’s faithful love, or God’s Power, from above.

I could question His power to heal, a sudden illness that is so real,
Or even question the reason why, this befell on to my family and I;
And for them what may lie ahead, regarding an illness many dread,
But this He allowed to happen to me, for He’s The God of Eternity.

Friend, this isn’t just another story, but, a real life, for God’s Glory,
Another chapter in my life, of the sustaining Grace of Jesus Christ,
More pages on God’s Grace to me, as we journey towards eternity,
While all I need, He will afford, through Jesus, my Savior and Lord.

In days ahead, my Lord will sustain, me through any trials and pain,
And Christ shall uphold all my family, in ways that we’ve yet to see;
What I will feel like, I don’t know, but God will help me when I’m low,
To trust in The Rock of Ages, as in this chapter, He turns the pages.

Whatever happens, I know for sure, I will be with Christ forevermore,
And my Lord shall forsake me not, whatever may be my present lot.
For every lot, cast within my life, is through the Will of Jesus Christ,
Who grants me an abiding peace, which from God, will never cease.

Distracted: Better than Me

I learn many knew things,
I see alot of people,
But i cant help but get distracted by thinking of you

Classes pass slow,
So much homework always on hold
Your often gone so I make the most of this time
Inside im scremin' like a deamon,

Remembering the conversations we have,
Places we've gone,
All at the same time I work,
I dont know how it happens but i get it done..

I guess im just amazing like that!
Thank you for never leaving my thoughts
And for picking me up when i fell
I'm learning life,

Not hating it because of you,
Seems like thats all i care about right?
Nah, I have some life but nothing that people dont poke fun at,
I deal with it but you should find someone else,
You can do so much better than me

If You Aint Lovin You Aint Livin

If you got a cadillac boy
And a 40 room shack boy
A bucket full of money
And a tree full of honey
But if your gettin no huggin
No smoochin or a muggin
If you aint lovin
Than you aint livin
If youõre ridin on a gravy train
Instead of walkin down loverõs lane
You cant make hay boy
Cause your goin the wrong way boy
You gotta get a little honey
Its better than money
If you aint lovin
Than you aint livin
If they call you a big man
Cause you got a lot of bottom land
If youre kin to the president
And ya get help from the government
But if your gettin no attention
Youre better off on a pension
If you aint lovinõ
Than you aint livin
If you got a string of long cards
And your smokin them four-bit cigars
You aint so well to do
Unless you get a little coochy-coo
It takes a little bit of smackin
Or your lifes lackin
If you aint lovin
Than you aint livin

The Chase Is Better Than The Catch

The Chase is Better Than the Catch
(Metallica - Miscellaneous)
You know I'm bad, the times I've had
I've gotta bad reputation
I don't care, I get my share
Don't feel no deprivation
The more I get the better it is
I like it fine, Like a little whizz
Treat'em like ladies, that's a fact
You know the chase is better than the catch
Silver tongued devil, deamon leach
You know just what I'm doing
I like a little innocent bitch
You know I ain't just screwing
I love you baby, love you too much
I like you fine I feel your touch
But your appearance don't hold no class
You know the chase is better than the catch
A little beauty I love you madly
Come on home with me
I know you're hot, I know what you've got
You know I want to shake your tree
Come on honey touch me right there
Come on honey don't you get scared
come on honey let me get you in the sack
You know the chase is better than the catch

Anythings Better Than Feelin The Blues

(matrica berg/randy scruggs)
I sent myself a dozen roses
Right before the office closes
Just to make my girlfriends green with envy
Ever since I lost you
All the crazy things I do
I didnt even know I had it in me.. oh but
Hey its all right
Its just another saturday night
Got nobody.. got no nothin to lose
Im gonna get dressed up and go downtown
Spread a little misery round
Anythings better than feelin the blues
Found a restaurant on my way
Told em it was my birthday
Just to hear the waiters sing off-key
Ive sprung a loose wire.. thats a fact
Got a strange little monkey on my back
But I kinda like the company.. and I guess
Hey, its all right
Its just another saturday night
Got nobody.. got no nothin to lose.
Im gonna get dressed up and go downtown
Dance the little monkey around
Anythings better than feelin the blues
Hey its alright.
Its just another saturday night
Got nobody... got no nothin to lose.
Im gonna get dressed up and go down town
Live it up and never live it down
Anythings better than feelin the blues
Anythings better than feelin the blues

I'm Better Than That!

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy.
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.

So many pick up wrong meanings,
From what is perceived and...
Not known.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that hopeless cat.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not,
Greedy a lot.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

I know I'm not that...
Greedy.
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
What is believed and seen as shown.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

I know I'm better than just sleazy
I'm not that,
Hopeless cat.
I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm better than that.

So many trip on just seeing,
What is believed and seen as shown.
But I'm better than that.
Yes I'm...
I'm better than that!
Oh yes I'm,
I'm better than that!

And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this

Give A Little Help To My God

Give a little help to my God
Give a little help to my God
Because my God needs it
And I know that you can do it
You don't have to be shy
Or afraid of God
God is not a criminal
God saves people

Better Than

Two is better than one,
Three is better than two,
Four is better than three,
Five is better than four,
Six is better than five,
Seven is better than six,
And like the strength of sharing with one another;
But listen to the songs of my muse,
For i am here to show you love.

The Future Promise Of Beings Better Than We Are

The future promise of beings better than we
One hundred year old brains in twenty year bodies
Creatures more knowledgeable more healthy more durable than we are
Perhaps our descendants-

And the old wonder
At how we the antiquated of the present
Will love and be worthy of love
In the world of more perfect
If not wiser beings.

Better than Candy

'No candy today.'
I had to tell her
as every day I told her
while passing melted
snow cones that stained
the sidewalk I could not
by her better shoes to
walk on. Not today.
Today we barely have
what we really needed
yesterday. Today is
months behind and
four years old.
'No candy.', I told
her as I kissed her.

'Better than candy.'
she said of my kiss.
Better than candy.

I Know Better Than That!

in my thousand weaknesses
my strength is formed,
in my endless failures,
triumph is born.
in every flaw a glimmer,
in every darkness a light.
in my hunger there is fullness,
in my restlessness a home.
in every bruise and scar,
beauty is forged.
in every moment of silence,
passion set free.
with every stumbling step,
another step is taken.
be there any difference,
i know better than that!

Better Than Sunshine

Thoughts of you

are better than sunshine,

and sweeter than

cherry wine.

If I want to be happy

I think of you

in my mind,

then I feel fine.

Memories is

all that will be,

once we are

gone—you & me.

That’s once we are gone,

gone to the other side,

where everything is

just Divine.

So let’s make a memorie

that brings only smiles,

for they are better to

remember all the while.

A Little Help

just a broken down car,
had to push it out of the road....
put my last ten dollars in gas....

and didnt make it home.
almost had the damned thing
paid for... almost, walking...

this boat has too many leaks....
pay the rent, cut off the lights;
pay the lights, cut off the phone....

pay the phone, run out of food....
everytime i plug one leak,
three more pop up.

working too much for too little,
feeding the machine that's
leaving me behind....

brother, need a little help!

There Are Poets Better Than Me

There are poets better than me:
Many known, and many more unknown-
They have language I don’t have
And an ability to surprise in ways I cannot
And the beauty of their sound is a beauty beyond mine-
They have worlds I do not know
And rhythms I cannot reach
They can entertain as I cannot-
And they see and feel what I cannot;
They are better than me:

Other poets are better than me
Greater than me
More than me.

And the only consolation is
Writing what I feel I must-
Going on.

Better Than Nothing

J. spinks
(chorus)
Its better than nothing girl
Its better than nothing at all
Its better than nothing girl
Its better than nothing
Lets find a hideaway tonight
Somewhere where we can be together
Im tired of waiting for the right time
If this is not the ritz whatever
(chorus)
I wanna hold more than your hand
I wanna touch more than emotion
You dont need words to understand
This hole might be run down and broken
(chorus)
Dont think because I just cant wait that I dont care
This isnt meant to be a back seat love affair
(chorus)
