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.
(he's the famous Jett Jackson

Robert Louis Stevenson

What Man May Learn, What Man May Do

WHAT man may learn, what man may do,
Of right or wrong of false or true,
While, skipper-like, his course he steers
Through nine and twenty mingled years,
Half misconceived and half forgot,
So much I know and practise not.

Old are the words of wisdom, old
The counsels of the wise and bold:
To close the ears, to check the tongue,
To keep the pining spirit young;
To act the right, to say the true,
And to be kind whate'er you do.

Thus we across the modern stage
Follow the wise of every age;
And, as oaks grow and rivers run
Unchanged in the unchanging sun,
So the eternal march of man
Goes forth on an eternal plan.

Even An Old Man Does Not Wish To Read

EVEN AN OLD MAN DOES NOT WISH TO READ

Even an Old Man does not wish to read
An Old Man’s Poetry-
What is the use of bad health litanies
And endless complaints of disappointments?
And wonderings about Waste and Loss
And about Time never to return
And all one has erred in?

An Old Man longs for Beginning again.

An Old man wants what he cannot have
And wishes to be what he cannot be-
And write as if there were new worlds waiting to be found within himself
And great adventures and explorations in writing and writing and writing
An old man longs for freshness deep down things
And dry dry dry is all
Theory
And Grey his life.

Not What I Pictured

There is nothing like a man in car heart jeans
A white beaded and
A cowboy hat
A good looking cowboy could still my heart away
We could ride into the sun set

But when I looked into your eyes
I was delightedly surprised when I feel in love with you
Because you're not the guy I pictured
I was going to fall in love with at all
You're more
Your hair not as blonde and not as long
Your eyes not blue
And 6' 4' is a lot taller then I thought
Your not even country
I can make you break just in a couple words
But you can me

You do tell me every day I love you
That I'm the prettiest woman you have ever seen
That your only wish is to be with me
You'll never want anything
As much as you want to be with me
When I cry you're the first one to take the blame
Even if it has nothing to do with you
Your always there trying your hardest to cheer me up and
Not caring what you have to do today you'll put it off and make sure
I'm smiling when you leave me

You even have qualities I don't have like patients
You need patients for not only kids but also in being awesome husband
Like I know you will be because you're always worried you're not doing enough
When really you're doing too much and I don't feel like I'm doing enough for you
But you would never ask for me to do no more
For I could do no wrong
You treat me like I am some kind of angle
When really you are the king of my world
And I try to treat you like one but I'm afraid I'm not doing enough
If you treat our kids half aw well as you treat me then
You'll be the greatest dad to our kids

Your hair and your eyes are not what
I expected at all
The way you treat me is much much more then I expected
What is in store for the future I don't know but knowing you
It's not what I pictured

I Know Not What I Am

KNOW NOT WHAT I AM

I know not what I am
I know not what I’ll be
I only know I’ll die one day
And cease to dream of me.

Life Is Not what One Wishes

Ask the guru, ask the saint
Ask the living, ask the dead
Life is not what one wishes
Whether one wanted it or not
It is what you lived
Keep hoping for the best
You get it or not
Nobody knows

The World Is Not What I Want It To Be

THE WORLD IS NOT WHAT I WANT IT TO BE

The world is not
What I want it to be
It never will be.

Life is a night
Without end
And the day
Is the light
That never was,
And will never be
Again.

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.

I Know Not What

I know not what
the future holds for me;
Or if alive I'll even be;
Or if success I'll ever see;
Or if from cares I'll be set free

But if success I never know,
I will have felt friendship's glow;
And if cares infest my day,
I will have learned how to pray;
And if I no longer have breath,
I will have known - LIFE.

Alas! This Is Not What I Thought Life Was

Alas! this is not what I thought life was.
I knew that there were crimes and evil men,
Misery and hate; nor did I hope to pass
Untouched by suffering, through the rugged glen.
In mine own heart I saw as in a glass
The hearts of others ... And when
I went among my kind, with triple brass
Of calm endurance my weak breast I armed,
To bear scorn, fear, and hate, a woful mass!

It's Not What Jesus...

dont tell me:
'it's not what Jesus would do! '
you just bombed his country
back into the stone age.
dont tell me:
'it's not what Jesus would want.'
you just killed
the people that he fed.
dont tell me:
'it's not what Jesus would teach.'
you keep burying women and children
right next to the oil fields.
dont tell me:
'it's not what Jesus would die for...'
you've been nailing him
to that cross for 2000 years!

Emily Dickinson

The lonesome for they know not What

262

The lonesome for they know not What
The Eastern Exiles—be—
Who strayed beyond the Amber line
Some madder Holiday—

And ever since—the purple Moat
They strive to climb—in vain—
As Birds—that tumble from the clouds
Do fumble at the strain—

The Blessed Ether—taught them—
Some Transatlantic Morn—
When Heaven—was too common—to miss—
Too sure—to dote upon!

I Know Not What Else to Do

Crouching under me like a jackal
Creeping towards me like a crab
You sneak around me like a haunt
You crawl your hands around my waist and grab


You draw me into the heat of your arms
But all too quickly it seems
You make me feel like I'm floating without breath
And trapped in a sleepless nightmare of a dream


Trying not to smile when you hit me to the ground
Laughing at my bruises knowing not what else to do
Leaning into all of your punches
Watching myself waste away as I lose myself in you

What was Not What is

What was not what is,
Things are different because times change.
Yet my love for you remains the same.

What was not what is,
Now I have to remember to know my place.
Was in a relationship now I am single,
Feeling love sick and I do not want to mingle.

What was not what is,
I do not want to forget,
Because I have no regret.

No more what was I have to deal with what is,
I have no choice but to leave and my status is incomplete.
What was I still have a vivid imagery,
What is looks a bit blurry.

What was..........What was
Not what is! ! ! ! !

When my love did what I would not, what I would not

When my love did what I would not, what I would not,
I could hear his merry voice upon the wind,
Crying, "e;Fairest, shut your eyes, for see you should not.
Love is blind!"

When my love said what I say not, what I say not,
With a joyous laugh he quieted my fears,
Whispering, "Fairest, hearken not, for hear you may not.
Hath Love ears?"

When my love said, "Will you longer let me seek it?
Blind and deaf is she that doth not bid me come!"
All my heart said murmuring, "Dearest, can I speak it?
Love is dumb!

Not What Is Wish...But Done

Its been cold many nights.
When sleeping alone,
Is not what is wish...
But done.

Its been hard to resist.
A needing for much more,
Than an old emptiness,
To come.

I want somebody known to me,
Inside.
I want somebody shown to be,
Alive and not hide...
Away.

Its been cold many nights.
And hugging a pillow to snuggle up,
Is not right!

I want somebody known to me,
Inside.
I want somebody shown to be,
Alive and not hide...
Away.
Or play games that stay on display!

I want somebody known to me,
Inside.
I want somebody shown to be,
Alive and not hide...
Away.

Its been hard to resist.
A needing for much more,
Than an old emptiness,
To come.

An aloneness like this,
Is not what is wished...
But done.

Not What It Seems

A long day
If ever these questoins were yours
What would you say?
I don't know
But I'm writing the answers on
Cheaper paper napkins
And now he's turning off
Now she's shutting down


And these flights
They climb through my veins
like it's mercury rising
And these nights
I seem to remember a home that was better
And now he's turning off
And now she's shutting down

It's not what it seems
Nothing's the same when you give it away
No it's not what it seems
It's just what you think it is

Now he's turning off
This family is breaking down

It's not what it seems
Nothing's the same when you give it away
No it's not what it seems
It's just what you think it is

It's just what you think it is
