on IMitation (will that anger you?)

L'imitazione del male supera sempre l'esempio; comme per il contrario, l'imitazione del bene e sempre inferiore.]

Respicere exemplar
vitae morumque jubebo
Doctum imitatorem,
et veras hinc ducere voces.

Pindarum quisquis studet aemulari,
lule ceratis ope Daedalea Nititur pennis,
vitreo daturus Nomina ponto.

Dociles imitandis Turpibus ac pravis omnes sumus
C'est un betail servile et sot a mon avis Que les imitateurs.]

Der Mensch ist ein nachahmendes Geschopf.
Und wer Vorderste ist, fuhrt die Heerde.

Paradoxically though it may seem,
it is none the less true
that life imitates art far more
than art imitates life.

Imitation is suicide.

One who imitates what is bad always goes beyond his model; while one who imitates what is good always comes up short of it.

No man ever yet became great by imitation.

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us
to an understanding of ourselves.

Most people are other people.
Their thoughts are someone else's opinions,
their lives a mimicry,
their passions a quotation.

Those who do not want to imitate anything,
produce nothing.

To be as good as our fathers we must be better,
imitation is not discipleship

Insist on yourself; never imitate.

Posterity weaves no garlands for imitators.

Imitation, if noble and general,
insures the best hope of originality.

And now, weigh the pros and cons
why have i imitated you
and you imitating me

the great writers
above speak beforehand before us

and i have not heard ever
one of them complaining
or angry

perhaps
they are not to shortsighted
insecure
and shallow and short-tempered

precisely, they are great.

and here's the last saying for the day:

Imitation is the sincerest flattery.

Debates About This Can Escalate

If the air wasn't free,
In the atmosphere as it is.
No one here, there or anywhere,
Would be on this Earth,
To be seen as we appear.

And yet we take advantage,
With a disrespect so clear.
There are some on this planet,
That actually believe...
They are in control of it.
And the lives people lead to inflict a fear.

But in every molecule that exists,
That allows all of this...
Is not without a consciousness.
Debates about this can escalate...
But an escaping from the truth,
Is a waste of one's fate.

And those who disbelieve,
The Earth is a nonthinking entity...
Have only their next catastrophe to see,
Just how upset an ignorance of this can get!

No one is a part of 'something'...
That exists to reject,
A dismissing of being part of the all of it!
And a feeding of those who leech without appreciation,
There will come lessons Mother Nature will teach.

Simple Observation #34 - Everything that is true......

Everything that is true we can also usually prove to be such
but something that’s false may not be obvious even to touch.

That Illness Is Obvious And Can Be Easily Cured

Perhaps in one's mind,
They would like to see things...
Remain the same,
Unchanged.

But the fact of the matter is...
From birth to childhood,
Nothing stays as it is!

And 'something' in the heads,
Of adults should click!
If Mother Nature sees to it,
That everything changes...
Why is anyone living to breathe air,
Upset with anything...
That is not permanently fixed?

Misunderstanding,
And a lack of comprehension...
Stays trapped inside of a mindset like that.

There is no sense in researching,
For the beginnings of confusion!
That illness is obvious and can be easily cured.
No one should be looking too far,
For the reason and cause of their problems!
That implementation was created,
For mankind 'alone' to ensure this endures!

A Heart That Can

You say I've done a lot of good
You're glad I found you when I did
But I wonder why you keep
Those questions in your head
Oh I think you're afraid to fall
Someone went and blew the call
All I can say is my heart tries hard
Try as hard as I can
You'll never find that my love falls short
One day you'll understand
That I've got a heart that can
Well I think I know by now
I will be standin' by your side
Takin' in account true love's never shy
I can show you everyday
This is not a one act play
All I can say is my heart tries hard
Try as hard as I can
You'll never find that my love falls short
One day you'll understand
That I've got a heart that can
So let me love you the best
That I know how
Let me move you with
Everything that love allows
All I can say is my heart tries hard
Try as hard as I can
You'll never find that my love falls short
One day you'll understand
That I've got a heart that can

That's My About The Poet

I guess that one should not take
The Bible literally
I choked for lionesses
As in the book of Daniel
I ended up in prison
Then I even went naked
As they say Isaiah did (I believe it was Isaiah, not positive)
That one landed me in jail
I once stated I was God
One of poetry at least
It's hard living on the edge
Though there's times of clarity
They say that I'm bipolar
Also schizoaffective
I'm not sure what all that means
Or even if they're spelled right
I guess I'm no young lion
And not much of a poet
I just thought that you should know
That's straight from the horse's mouth
If you can not accept this
I guess we will never be
As my Shaki once sang out
'You'll be there and I'll be here
And that's the deal my dear' so
Much for my lionesses
Please don't ask me my I.Q.
I really don't have a clue
Should I talk about my clock
That's my about the poet
Did I scare you all away

Everything that Goes.....

looks the flower wait the butterfly to touch down the
sweet petals that it can offer, see the fish swim in the
water flows in the riding waves of forever stream of
the sea, as the birds zooming fly in the hovering of the
wind in the high sky

see the eyes have wizardly blinks the crystallized
ball of morning dew, the moist wet the smooth surface
of your wonder eyes; listen my dear heart the harmony
of whispering humid echo in a distance song of the
Crickets, as the lunar light window the coming night to
stay, till dawn of your midnight sleep and the sky has
offer to close its morning return

show my emptiness of the longing, you’re everything
that i always adores and captures my hope, as the lone
past hold me to sanctify the wishing heart to remember
that you’re the answer of what i am living for, many of
years i believe, finding the most in you the real you, i
do wait

you have thought me of what i felt, think the moment
of knowing me alone of what is the truth and real my
dear one, stand my hour and everything goes fine, for
the timeless moment of myself, love's you and always
stay with you my lasting wish of mystery

day is night before i sleep, thinking of loving you and
never i have change my will to love you, let then be
the stream of every streams of willing stay, and i still
love YOU....... i will

That Ain't About to Happen Here

Just because you do not see my scars...
Or I do not brag about the wounds I've suffered,
They are there.
Some healing from the drops of blood...
That have left stains on the path of my journey!

And if for a one second,
You believe I am going to stop...
To pour tea and gossip.
You have picked the wrong one,
To do that with!
I am very upfront about that.

However...
I will share this with you,
I am in no mood to debate...
Over who would benefit from my experience.
Or the fuzzy feeling I would get,
From captivated wide eyed children...
I would rather strangle.
Since I've learned very early in my travels...
Experiences can not be taught!
They must be lived to appreciate.
Complete with discipline that motivates.

And I am not the one to sit patiently,
While someone decides...
If my life is worthy of someone's attention.
They may or may not give.
After my throat has become hoarse,
From screaming at the top of my lungs.
No...
For that I am not qualified!

I am not living my life for that kind of decision,
To be made.
Or waste my time in discussion...
About the disadvantages my actions may create.
No...
That ain't about to happen here.

You can,
If you wish to call it...
Self involvement.
I too have learned many lessons.
And I am not certified,
To solve someone else's problems!
Or will be baited to complicate,
My own issues.
And I've got some needing my focus.
Prioritized with a peace of mind...
I am not about to give up!

You can,
If you wish to call it...
Self involvement.
And you would be correct!

Evil That Dwells Within

I see faces that walk past me, And a shadow that stands beside me, I see you and the evil sees me.

When I am alone the evil always calls to me, The evil whispers to me but only inside my head, The evil is always around me and influencing my hatred of others.

The evil so frighting that others would flee from it but I find A new view of life with it, When good should envelope me the evil burns it away from me. I have no room for your pathetic lies and excuses this evil inside me is all I need.

It never judges only befriends me, I hate it but I wish to love it, With the evil that dwells within I can do anything and not fear anything or anyone, Speak my mind with decision I have not found my religion. God was never there but the evil that fills me.

I am angry and always seem to be, Only A few are selected to see the good in me, Others will have to deal with the evil that stands beside me, People judged to many times and now my mind is full of hatred, Burning my feelings and spitting on me.

I have never been bullied but people do it visually by glaring at me, Not my popular friends but the ones who don't know me, I hate you and wish to see you feel the evil within me, But I will not release it because it would make A scene.

When my time is right and Satan depicts and calls back the evil within me, Than I will be free. I am to young to live this way but feel I need to be to teach me a lesson, By doing it carefully. My friends Don't know the way I view things because I hide it like I have hid everything, I am close to them but still the evil seems to follow me.

Some days are worse when the evil influences everyone around me and they seem to turn it all on me, they can't contain my evil like I can contain it, The evil is powerful but not more powerful than me, But the evil can change my mood faster than a bullet can kill an enemy.

My mood changes and all I see is Red and Blasphemy, Go into a dark fit that is inside me, Brings up my anger and hatred that I feel towards others. Can't stop the anger from rising but it is all I can do to strive and fight the feelings inside me.

I gain control and the evil will never take hold, It follows me and is the shadow beside me.

When I Laid Bare Everything That I Am

When I laid bare everything that I am
it was totally unconditional
that I told the secrets of my own humanity,
and everything that I am was freely

revealed to you and now I fear
that everything else goes from my thoughts
as if you are the only one
that touches my days, nights and years

and in your love I am totally lost
as daily it takes on new forms
and I know that you are destined for me,
wherever my days want to go

and from the beginning to the end
you fit perfectly into my life.

Everything That 'Is' Has Its Limits

It is difficult to agonize through change.
Or to let go of those comforts,
Knowing the familiar will not be the same.

It is difficult to grow,
Around many who fear the doing of it.
While they choose to sit and reminisce,
The times they miss and wish to revisit.

It is difficult to agonize through change.
Or to let go of those comforts,
Knowing the familiar will not be the same.

It is difficult to witness,
Seasons come and go.
But everything that 'is' has its limits.
No matter who denies that this is so.

Everything That You Want

(randy sharp, jack weslet routh)
In the beginning
The nights were long
Under the moonlight
I could do no wrong
You told me
I was everything you wanted me to be
Then summer was over
And the nights grew cold
You got restless
And hard to hold
I tried to be
Everything you wanted me to be
Now you keep staring
At that open door
You got what you wanted
And you still want more
Well look at me
Im everything you wanted me to be
Chorus:
Well if I dont keep you satisfied
You cant say that I havent tried
And if Im not what you want by now
For the life of me I cant see how
Ill ever be
Everything that you want me to be
In the beginning
The nights were long
Under the moonlight
I could do no wrong
Remember me?
I was everything you wanted me to be

Everything That We Have

Now you cry a river
as you're lying here dreaming
you opened up your eye's
and started believing
but it's too late now to care
everything that we have here is gone
there is no more forever
it's too late now to realize
what we done wrong
everything that we have here is gone

Was a time you could've lend a hand
but you never would make a stand
said it was just part of God's plan
so you just sat there watching the destruction
as we fade away into nothing
now everything that we have here is gone
did it come to you as a surprise
when you never heard that morning bird
sing it's last song
now everything that we have here is gone

So now you cry a river
as you're lying there dreaming
feeling no one was there
you opened up your eye's
to find everything that we have here gone
was it worth hiding behind the lies
through the words you only heard
now everything that we have here is gone
(Spiritwind-2010)

There For Me

You've been there for me, through thick and thin;
When my whole world felt like it was caving in.
We have shared many times: the good and the bad;
You have seen me happy; you have seen me sad.

You know me back to front and inside out;
You understand everything that I am about.
You know things I like, and the things I hate.
To me, you are a friend: my very best mate.

We've been good friends now, for many years.
You've seen my smiles; you've seen my tears.
To you, I've often revealed my true inner soul.
Together, we have often achieved many a goal.

When I am down, I can always call on you,
And, you know that you can call on me too.
Together, we have travelled to many places,
And, over the years, we have met many faces.

Talking things over, our problems seem to halve.
Our two lives, to date, have followed similar paths.
We have shared experiences, both old and new.
Luckily, our disagreements have been very few.

You are always prepared to lend me an ear.
You know my obsessions; you know my fears.
Friends, together, I hope we will always stay,
In years to come, when we're both old and grey.

No One Can

(music: marillion lyrics: steve hogarth)
You landed in my life
Like a new and brighter light
That made all my past seem in the shadow
I always used to believe
That beauty was skin deep
But I need a new world to describe you
And the time that it took to take down the wall
Was the time that it took for me to fall
Hopelessly weak
No one can take you away from me now
Dont worry if they take me away
No one can take you away from me now
Dont matter how long we have to wait
The days before you came
Were really all the same
A greyness I used to call freedom
Endless nights out with the boys
The boasting and the noise
To think that I ever believed them
No one can take you away from me now
Dont worry if they take me away
No one can take me away from me now
Dont matter how long we have to wait
I dont care what they think
Youre all I believe in
I carry you here
And theres something of you
In everything that I love
No one can take you away from me now
Dont worry if they take me away
No one can take me away from me now
Dont matter how long we have to wait
No one can take you away from me now
Dont worry if they take me away

There Is a Welcoming of Truth In Everything That Is Done

I remember my encounter...
With reality!
That's when I was stripped,
From those things I valued.
I was spinning in a whirlpool
Of a cruel introduction to truth.

I had some things I liked.
Things I thought I needed,
And kept polished!
Waxed to keep dust reflecting shadows.
Yes!
Even though accelerated winds,
Kept cars I owned spotless.
Dust and I became enemies.
I just didn't want to see any of it on my cars.

I took my parents for granted.
Until they became ill,
And passed away.

Friends I shared nakedness with.
And every conceivable intimacy...
Were gone!
Vanished in thin air it seemed.
And the things we shared,
To impress each other with...
Became useless possessions.
Especially when loved ones go,
And you are left holding onto emptiness!
And it doesn't take long...
To discover the valueless nonsense in this!

I remember my encounter...
With reality!
That's when I was stripped,
From those things I valued.
I was spinning in a whirlpool
Of a cruel introduction to truth.

And when I began my pursuit,
To free myself of guilt...
I had to forgive a superficiality I had with life.
When I discovered my heart could be broken,
By the permanent absence of those I love!

There is a welcoming of truth in everything that is done.
I am blessed to have learned how to love and forgive.
And blessed to appreciate my life as it is.
And so very blessed to have come to know the ones I loved!

Pass It On

Ladies and Gentlemen, we've got Everlast in here
I think he has something to say
I'm here to uplift, I don't bug, I don't drift away from my subject
Not even if my music stops or my beat is gone
I'm just here to express myself and pass it on
Speak much words of wisdom, Everlast has to jism
So sit back and relax, kick up your feet and listen to E
'Cause that's me no others can be, half as fine
I'll blow your mind, with the m-i-c
Get off the tip quick, boy you making me sick
No other brother could be as smart as my man Kool Nick
Understand, he's my man with the plan
We come to parties with the possies, just to gain some fans
The posse is strong, the line is long
People flocking to my shows just to hear a song
It's not a diss, it's a mouth full of bliss
Throw your hands in the air and blow me a kiss from the crowd
'Cause I'm proud, I'll say my name loud, Everlast pounds songs
Like a thunderin' cloud, it's not rock and roll
It's hip hop music, it's got a lot of soul if you learn how to use it
Well, I'm here to tell suckers to go to hell
Others tried to take me down, there the ones who fell
Ignorence, was then there for
Take it a little at a time, don't go for it all at once
Because that's just stupid, it don't make cents
Just relax and move your body don't look so tense
I'm not here to diss nobody, I'm just having some fun
Everlast lasts forever that's why I'm number one so pass it on
With the forty in my fist, brakin' out my list
Of all the suckers I'm out to diss
There's none to match me, or ever catch me off my guard
So they can scratch me off the MC All-Star Team
Everlast is number one, that means I reign supreme
'Cause there ain't no other, listen up brother
Just 'cause I'm white don't mean that I'm another sucker
On the microphone, frontin' and fakin'
Not Mexican, Asian, Black, or Jamaican
Just a sensation made to be Caucassion
Get ready brothers, here comes an invasion
Don't try to stop it, you got a rhyme drop it
You might detect that respects my topic
I won't rush you, but I'll discuss it
Go ahead and pop a shot if you think you can bust it
I'll go on and talk some more, I guarentee you won't be bored
If you get on the floor and go for yours, say that you did it
Get up get out your seat get on the floor and get with it
And listen to the rhyme I like to call mine
I rehearse every verse and soon you will find not one mistake
So don't try to brake and talk about takin out my dope rhymes I make
So pass 'em on
You're going wild for my flowing style
I don't stutter, I utter words
Versitile and entertain with my brain
I always wear a smile and don't front and fake
I run the whole mile, you clap 'cause I snap like a Crockadile
Whether I'm on the stage or in my domecile
I'm not afraid to tell, I'm no joke
You schemin' for my lyrics 'cause you know they're dope
Don't give me nothin', Pour a glass of Rosae
I say soul to your health, then I blow you away
Up the ladder, success I'm climbin'
Feirce like a lion, keepin' ducks tame
Murderin' MC's till none remain, until I'm number one
Shinin' like the sun, with a mic and a host
I'm a run you down, gunnin' down M.C.s and writin' on the wall
I gotta show down if you got the balls, commence is my defense
'Cause you makin' me tense
I make a lot a dollars but I make more cents so pass it on
Pass it on, pass it down the line, I can flow with the best
I go rhyme for rhyme, with a punk claimin' they got talent
Thinkin' they got something but what you don't realize is
Everlast is number one, 'cause Everlast is on a superior level
Go ahead and laugh, call me the devil, I don't care
Yeah my skin is fair but I fill it rhyme for rhyme
Anytime with you or any part of your crew
And when I finish, take a sip of my brew and step off
Clear my throat with a cough and bust a move
To prove that I'm hard not soft with my DJ Bilal my beat will be final
You listen to my beat, you get nourished with wisdom and knowledge
Yeah I went to college and if you get dissed I won't appologize
That's not part of my rise, I go on and on
I go to any length, I like to see the crowd move
When I come on I'm trying to get my message across and pass it on
