Respect The Struggle

Respect the struggle
Strive to prevail
Stop wondering
What’s fake or real
Respect the hustle
You can not fail
Get on your feet
Let your spirit set sail
Respect the hard times
For what they are worth
They teach us a lot
But they indeed do hurt
Respect the real
Ignore the fake
The fake will take
What you worked hard, to make
Respect the wise
For they kno wisdom
When they breathe no longer
Do not forget them
Respect the game
Even if you don’t win
You have to learn to lose
In order to win
Respect the dignity
That no one can take
Be strong
Sooo you won’t break
Respect the process
Of life it’s self
Whether poor or rich
Life is a gift
But when it get’s hard
It’s almost cursed
Respect the rewards
For working hard
But don’t let that
Taint who you are
Respect the struggle of
Life’s a bitter sweet curse
But you can turn that around
And make it a blessing in the works
That feels sooo good
It needs no words
My friend,
This is the end of my
Bitter sweet words

Respect The Struggle©

They Can't Take That Away From Me

There are many many crazy things
That will keep me loving you
And with your permission
May I list a few

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No they can't take that away from me

We may never never meet again

The Master’s Calling

Beyond the thunder skies
there lay a bright beginning
that is there for everyone.
Beyond the dark and daylight,
there is a promised land.
A land where someone will take you
on the day when they can.
For now just sit and wonder
beyond the storm clouds overhead
and wait the master’s calling
when you can lay
peacefully in sleep.

You Are The Art Of My Life

You are the song I love to sing
The lyrics I owe to hymn
The bass that synchronizes my heart beat
The melody that fills my spirit

You are the poem I create
The rhyme I give in every end
The rhythm that makes a poetry
Just like a riddle so sweet and free

You are the vision I like to paint
The dazzling colors I try to blend
You are the art, no one can replace
The obra maestra that will never fade

You Are The Reason Why

you are the one that i love
you are the one that i need
you are the one i want to be with
you are the one i will fight for

you are the reason why
i am breathing today
you are the reason why
i could walk again
you are the reason why
i am not afraid of death
you are the reason why
i can't go back and love another

you are someone i could not leave without
you are the one i wish i could have for the rest of my life

you are the reason why
i'm alive
you are the reason why
i could fight against enemies...

When You Have Nothing To Say But Simply Look At Things

you feast upon facts.
and facts dance around you
showing the best that they can be
though not as beautiful
as always
for at times facts can be so
damn hurting.

and when hurt
you feel the uselessness of words
that like daggers
may have only the function of stabbing
you more

you bleed and you look at yourself
so helplessly
bleeding

you have nothing to say
you remember only one thing
and this they notice
with glee

you keep on looking at the injury
your hands busy wiping
the blood

your mouth blowing the pain away
hushing
soothing.

The Thought Police

(d. pickerill/p. odonoughue)
Chorus:
Thought police
They will put you under
The thought police
They will take you in
The thought police
They will clean your mind out
The thought police
You can never win
You can never win
You can never, never, never, never, never win
There are people around with problems
Those who live in fear
Running from the shadows
Waiting for another year
Thought of the secrets
Secrets of the mind
Thoughts can spell out danger
To the leaders of the time
Chorus
Thoughts are fleeting glimpses
Of the future or the past
They lock ideas in a bottle
Its time to break the glass
Hiding out in the daytime
Crawling through the night
Keeping out of danger
Just trying to find the light
Chorus
Chorus (x2 and fade)

Bury Those Truths

not all truths
set you free, some bury you
to the grounds of
eternal damnation
these
are those that better be left
unsaid
forever kept on sealed lips
and taken to
the graves
so they can take finally
their eternal
rest.

The Bitter Herb

O bitter herb, Forgetfulness,
I search for you in vain;
You are the only growing thing
Can take away my pain.

When I was young, this bitter herb
Grew wild on every hill;
I should have plucked a store of it,
And kept it by me still.

I hunt through all the meadows
Where once I wandered free,
But the rare herb, Forgetfulness,
It hides away from me.

O bitter herb, Forgetfulness,
Where is your drowsy breath?
Oh, can it be your seed has blown
Far as the Vales of Death?

Any Volunteers?

I awakened recently,
With this thought as my reality.
What I've done with a doing to do,
To accomplish as my interpretation...
Of success with a job well done,
Needs not to be repeated with consistency.
Not by me to achieve to prove my stamina.

And if those standing on the sidelines,
Believe I have not done enough...
They can take my place on the stage,
To be scrutinized...
With a critiquing I have welcomed from them,
For years.
To discover such ease of it I've experienced.

Any volunteers?
What about those naysayers in the back row?

The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life

Spanish Men

The Men of Seville are, they say,
The laziest of Spain.
Consummate artists in delay,
Allergical to strain;
Fr if you have a job for them,
And beg them to be spry,
They only look at you with phlegm:
"Mañana," they reply.

The Men of gay Madrid, I'm told,
Siesta's law revere;
The custom is so ages old,
And to tradition dear;
So if you want a job done soon,
And shyly ask them: "When?"
They say: "Come back this afternoon:
We'll hope to do it them."

The Men of Barcelona are
Such mostly little caps,
That when you see them from afar
They make you think of Japs;
Yet they can take life on the run,
Quite peppy, I'll allow,
For when there's something to be done,
They shout: "We'll do it NOW."

The Angels

Like God’s body
The angel is cluster of tiniest particles
Clinging together because of gravity
They are like a dot to God’s body in size.
The angels who have two pairs of wings
Are under Sidratul Muntaha Tree in paradise
And are circling around God’s Throne
The angels who have four pairs of wings
Are the Sufra angels and angels of God’s court
All other angels have three pairs of wings
Angels are something like the super-strings
They can take almost any form and size
Angels can eat and drink but they do not do that
Angels have life partner as well but they do not enjoy sex
Angels are so tiny they can use the density of sky to fly
Usually the chief four angels carry God’s Throne
But on doomsday eight angels will carry it.


N.B.: Sidratul Muntaha Tree is a thorny tree of Ferdous Paradise (near God’s Center Point) under which many angels are just bowing and prostrating in awe. Sufra angels are translating text of Laohay Mahfuz (God’s Manuscript)

Love You til The Day I Die

Theres closets in my head where dirty things are kept
That never see the light of day
I want to drag them out, go for a walk
Just to see the look thats on your face
Sometimes I cant be straight I dont want to hurt you
So forgive me if I tell a lie
Sometimes I come on cold but dont believe it
I will love you till the day I die
I believe in doing things backwards
Take heed, start doing things in reverse
Here comes trouble, theres nothing wrong when I relax
Im talking to myself youre coming with me
Teaching you how to distort the facts
Sometimes I cant be straight I dont want to hurt you
So forgive me if I tell a lie
Sometimes I come on cold but dont believe it
I will love you till the day I die
I believe in doing things backwards
Take heed, start doing things in reverse
Frost on the window pane, the sound of pouring rain
All makes me glad of you
Though I am far away I am always with you
Know the answer before you know the question
Pull yourself together, baby, push with all your might
Im all alone, always alone
Though I am far away
I am always with you

Up Yours

(E. Stefani)
Mmmm I'll put up with you in the morning
And I'll put up with you in the night
I'll put up with you anytime
Oh being with you's such a delight
I'll put up with you and your boyfriends
And I'll put up with you and your family
I'll put up with you and the inlaws
If they can put up with me
I'll put up with your complaining
And I'll put up with your needs
I'll put up with you messin' around
You can go but once more with me (?)
I'll put up with you and your smoking
And I'll put up with you and your dirty deeds
I'll put up with you and your cussin'
You don't know how happy you would make me
I want you sugar yeah hey woo hoo hoo hoo
And baby I got to - I know I have to
I put my love around you honey (?)
(?)
I want you need you so bad
Oh you put up with me (?)
Ooh I'll put up
I'll put up, I'll put up, I'll put up
I'll put up with your last name
And I'll put up with you and not kiss my lips
I'll put up with you not missin' me
Though down deep inside I wish you would change
Though down deep inside I wish you would change
Though down deep inside I wish you would change
Though down deep inside I wish you would change

Sink or Swim

The rich get richer and the poor die trying
If you mention this, the rich call you defiant
Unruly and attempting your hand at inciting
Mindless violence and maybe some riots in
Posh sections of town lost up on the hills
Guarded by heaters, tucked away from the chill
Of broken furnaces and shredded blankets
Dim streetlights and flooded embankments

Shivering rags readily welcome the weather
While quivering bags hold eyes shady as ever
“Better dot your I's and cross the other letter
Or you’ll never get it and crack up like leather
Fetch a education to raise up your station
Your stature in life and your bank notation”

The message burns ears to the brink of cremation
As creation
Of sink or swim rules bans their flotation
Devices from ever being deployed
Unless they used to always never be employed
Frustration advocates feeling annoyed
Muckraking hits a wall not built by the Floyd

Reputations so green they’re impossible to soil
Explanations so aluminum they can’t be foiled
“So the chicken is rotten and the eggs are all spoiled
When you own the whole farm they can both be boiled”

No remorse and no apologies and no regard
And no recourse or acknowledging the free car
Or the rides it gives as it passes the laymen
And rolls over their tongues, still salivating
Wasting their fuel on silly dream chasing
Is silly

If the check they’re craving is in some room waiting
And the pattern repeats itself like a rhyme you miss
The Poor’s demise by pure chance coincides at times
When the rich socialize more than communists

Move Your Feet

You are the only one who can take my breath away
Like they say time flies when you're having fun
My love to you still feels like on the first day
For the rest of my life I need you by my side
You are the love of my life
Sun always shines when you're near
Sharing your secrets my dear
You are the one that I need
Without you I can't breath
Give me one moment in time
I wish you'll always be mine
Nothing that I wouldn't do
You know I guide you through
You're the one that I love send from heaven above
You are the queen of my heart
Every breath that I take every move that I make
All is for you worth the way
You are the love of my life
You are the key to survive
I need you by my side every day every night
I swear I love you
You are the love of my life
You are the key to survive
Wherever you go I just want you to know
You 'll stay here in my life
Cried picture your face in my hands
Hope that this love never ends
I would be by your side
For the rest of my life
Give me one moment in time
I wish you'll always be mine
Live for each moment a day
And I heal my suffering
You're the one that I love send from heaven above
You are the queen of my heart
Every breath that I take every move that I make
All is for you worth the way
You are the love of my life
You are the key to survive
I need you by my side every day every night
I swear I love you
You are the love of my life
You are the key to survive
Wherever you go I just want you to know
You 'll stay here in my life
For the rest of my life
I need you by my side
You 'll always be mine
You are the one that I need
You're the one that I love send from heaven above-

An Ode To A Saint Of Peace

An Ode to a Saint of Non-Violence – Mahatma Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

He came from a non-descript Indian place
A village which would not have a place
In Her Majesty’s palace’ grace
What could this man for India raise?

When the Indian nation reeled
Under a foreign yoke
This frail man with iron will
Preached a master stroke

He visualized violence was no funnel
To get to the end of the tunnel
That the spring of freedom would gurgle
For the Indian freedom struggle

It is not arms and blood
Or revenge, violence or death
That will get India freedom
From the British kingdom

They can take away our right
They can make their sticks bite
They can take us to gaol
But they cannot take away our soul!

Protests with no violence
Will shake their conscience
It is the only way
For the British to loose its sway

Despite British scorn
And ire of critics
He made every Indian “re-born”
And friends of skeptics

Respect for all and love for mankind
He preached & practiced
He made every Indian aware
And the British beware

When the British enacted suppressive laws
This soul bonded us with his non-violent straw
His simplicity and truthfulness held all in awe
He gave us belief, pride and strength not to thaw

In 1930 Gandhi gave a key freedom call
Civil disobedience was the mantra for all
Salt Tax was the symbol of oppression
That every Indian was to defy and make it fall

Men & women all were one
With Gandhi, they feared none
When Gandhi gave his peaceful protest call
They all rallied behind it like a wall

In Gandhi’s belief the nation rallied
Made the British rulers harried
The struggle for the British to leave continued
The voice of India was not to be subdued

The Salt law was broken
It was a challenge in token
The average Indian now believed
That the British could be shaken

The British police rained bullets and blows
Gandhi remained defiant with his followers in tow
Line replaced line as protestors were brought down
Under the bullets and blows of the Crown


A trickle became a torrent
The British blows served no deterrent
Pan India the rallies and crowds swelled
The peaceful voice of freedom could not be quelled

British goods were boycotted
In public rallies, they were burnt
Swadeshi! Swadeshi! rent the air
While the British sirens blared

Civil dis-obedience and satyagraha – grounded
The British were perplexed and confounded
The entire nation rallied to his non-violent call
The world took notice of it all

Came World War II
The Allies were stretched
While the war was won
British revenue coffers were wrecked

The Indian “Golden Hen”
Became a revenue drain
While Gandhi did not give in
His non-violent freedom refrain

Quit India! Quit India!
Unrelenting was Gandhi’s call
While the clamor gathered
The British “will” shattered

The Britsh knew not - how to handle it all
A frail looking man, had challenged them all
Years of supremacy of the British domain
Had cracked up under this non-violent virus strain.

The British empire gave in
To Gandhi’s non-violence spin
India was to become free
Without any violence or fee.

It is to this frail looking man
That the world gives credit
The strong belief in non-violence
He continues to inspire without any edit

To Indian, he is Bapu – The Father of the Nation
To the world he is an apostle of non-violence
And while the world looks on in silence
On still continuing theatres of violence

I pray that conflicting parties learn
No peace comes from the power of the gun
In how Bapu got us freedom – they should learn
Violence - they should shun
