Do What You Want, Be What You Are

Do what you want, be what you are
Do what you want girl, but be what you are
There aint no right er wrong way
Just a play from the heart
Lt aint a sign of weakness to give yourself away
Because the strong give up and move on,
While the weak, weak give up and stay
Chorus:
So do what you want to do
But be what you are ...
Do you believe in hot cars,
Leather bars, or movie stars
Is that whats real
Payin dues, earth shoes, chicago blues
Is that how you feel?
You can change, but you cant conceal
Whats deep inside you
Lts your game, lts your deal
Chorus:
So do what you want to do
But be what you are ...

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

I Know What You Are

Even if it make you want to stop and stare
Youd be better off it you were unaware
Everybody wants to see that its not them
Focused and unaffected
Youll get what you expected
Youre boring and predictable
Doesnt everybody want to get their hands
On everything that they desire?
I know youre not afraid
And I know exactly what you want to be
Even still you want to take what you cant get
Youd be better off if you could just forget
There isnt anyone who lives without regret
So it seems to be that no one really cares
And so the struggle to achieve the lions share
And I know what you are
Im not what you are

What You Are Doing II

You got to know what you are doing on this love,
And you've got to know what you are doing with my life;
Because the Creator will surely judge us all one day,
Yes this is a serious truth!
And i surely need you on this love,
But try to know what you are doing with my life.

Do What You Are Supposed To Do

do what you are supposed to do
no matter what
like is not the key
in understanding true duty

finish the work
and do it well like mama's
best daughter

and then submit
all that you have to offer

when this burden is over
go back to your room
and write
those unfinished lines
of the best poems
of your life

What You Are Doing

You got to know what you are doing with my life on this love,
And like the muse of your so exposed to many;
But my love is guided by the principles of nature,
And like the songs of two lovers.

Yes this is a serious truth about myself,
And i surely need you on this love;
But try to know what you are doing with my life.

For what you are.

Maybe you aren’t a virgin;
Maybe you are a divorcee,
A widow or an estranged one.
I don’t mind; I love not your past.

Maybe you aren’t yet mine;
Maybe you are to leave me,
Desert me or elope with one.
I don’t mind; I love not your future.

May be you aren’t virtuous;
Maybe you are an adulteress,
A paramour or a whore.
I don’t mind; I love not your back.

I love you for what you are
When you are with me..

What You Are To Me

Sweeter than a touch in a true love's kiss
Softer than the dew in the morning mist
Gentler than the fleece of a new born lamb
Kinder than the thought behind this man
is what you are to me.

Stronger than a ray from the sun above
Smoother than the feel of a new suede glove
Longer than the time in the universe
Wider than the seas where the ships immerse
is what you are to me.

Prouder than a peacock's fine display
Quieter than the way in which you pray
Clearer than the air which you inhale
Dearer than all life will you prevail
in what you are to me.

It's What You Are To Me

A heartfelt word
A sad goodbye
To hear you laugh
To see you cry

It all adds up
Its what you are to me

A hold of hands
A kiss to cheek
Still makes my heart
Skip that beat

It all adds up
Its what you are to me

Without you
I'd be lost
But my mind doesn't reach that far
You're my one for life
You're my guiding star

It all adds up
It's what you are to me
It's what you are to me

To memorise your sentences
To capture every word
To have every smile you've ever given me in my heart
I couldn't bare to be apart

It all adds up
It's what you are to me

What You Are

When you wanted me i came to you
when you wanted someone else i withdrew
when you asked for a light i set myself on fire
and if i go
far away
i know you'll find another slave
cause now i'm free
from what you want
now i'm free
from what you need
now i'm free
from what you are
when you wanted blood i cut my veins
and when you wanted love i bled myself again
now that i've had my fill you
i'd give you up forever
and here i go
far away
i know you
you'll find another slave
cause now i'm free
from what you are
now i'm free from what you need
now i'm free
from what you are
then a vision came to me
when you came along
i gave you everything but then you wanted more
cause now i'm free
from what you want
now i'm free
from what you need
now i'm free
from what you are
hey
now i'm free
from what you want
now i'm free
from what you need
now im free

You Have No Idea What You Are Up Against

You have no idea what you are up against.
And yet you have been conditioned,
To pray to 'It' without committment!

It hears and listens to all of the nonsense.
With those professions of devotion...
From an emptiness,
Faithfully dismissed.
As soon as the ritual...
Has satisfied a mind,
Limited in consciousness.

You have no idea what you are up against.
And yet you have been conditioned,
To pray to 'It' without committment!

In a belief whatever 'It' is...
Can be overwhelmed by flattery.
With wishes the 'act' delivers,
Something that can be 'shown'
How much you known 'It'!
And 'It' has chosen you...
To make 'Its' presence known!
Whether you 'own' or lease,
Your chariot from your sheltered crevice.

You have no idea what you are up against.
And yet you have been conditioned,
To pray to 'It' without committment!
And this 'It' sees.

E: What You Are

I walk into this room, oh
All eyes on me now
But i do not know the ppl inside
Look straight through me these eyes
Seeking more wisdom than i have to give away
Realize, realize what you are
chorus:
What you've become just as i have
Are you and i so unalike?
I don't hear you just as i am
Afraid if we dance we might die
Mock the world, lest they say,
Why don't you know?
If you live life, then you become what you are
The sea is unsparing
We are all drifting away, away from you, i pray for you now
Hoping to God on high is
Like clinging to straws while drowning,
oh realize, realize what you are
chorus:
What you've become just as i have
Are you and i so unalike
I don't hear you just as i am
afraid if we dance we might die
Mock the world, lest they say, why don't you know
when you live life, then you become what you are
what you are
is the beast in the lover's arms
what you are
is the devil in the sweet sweet kiss
what you are
is missing a piece
what you are
is a puzzle to me
chorus:
What you've become just as i have
are you and i so unalike?
i don't hear you just as i am
afraid if we dance we might die
Mock the world, until you die
don't you know when you give life, then you become what you are

What You Are Making Them

Swamp of metropolis and limos:
I am just trying to meet my quota as some Cinderella’s
Coach turns back into a pumpkin,
And the mice eat the cheese:
And I sit and watch with my dirty baseball cap well
Pulled down,
So that I’ll continue fitting in, and won’t be exposed:
It’s always good to wear a baseball cap when you are out,
And male,
And don’t want to be found out- That one of your ears
Should be missing for the busy waitress who just
Doesn’t give a d$mned:
And I am in the Montemarte district of West Palm Beach-
And I have something like three thousand pumpkins,
And I haven’t yet given one away to a pretty girl
With piss brown eyes-
You know, but if that mother comes back, I really want to
Buy her a bicycle:
And when I’m finished, I want to masturbate alone
And then die into a truck or somewhere,
And the nights are well shut off and balmy and the crickets
Are always complaining-
And I can’t stop thinking about womb deep wildflowers-
Girls who live so far away,
Even slightly above the earth in observatories of mountain
Napes:
They sell wine and when you run your finger around their
Glass, they sing without even having to acknowledge
What you are making them.

What You Are

I walk into this room
Oh, all eyes on me now
But I do not know the people inside
They look straight through me, these eyes
Seeking more wisdom than I have to give away
Realize, realize what you are...
What youve become,
Just as I have
Are you and I so unalike?
Huddled here, you,
Just as I am
Afraid if we dance we might die
Mock the world
Live safe, say why
Dont you know if you live life
Then you become what you are
The seasons sparing
Were all drifting away
Away from you
I pray for you now
Hoping to God on high
Is like clinging to straws
While drowning, oh
Realize, realize what you are...
What youve become
Just as I have
Are you and I so unalike?
Huddled here, you,
Just as I am
Afraid if we dance we might die
Mock the world
Live safe, say why
Dont you know
When you live life
Then you become what you are
What you are
Is the beast in a lovers arms
What you are
Is the devil in the sweet, sweet kiss
What you are
Is missing a piece
What you are
Is a puzzle to me
What youve become
Just as I have
Are you and I so unalike?
I dont hear you
Just as I am
Afraid if we dance we might die
What the world gives to you
Dont you know
When you give life
Then you become what you are?
Dont trust me
Trust you...
Up to you...
Trust you...

Believe in what you are

Believe in what you are and not what you see
It is holy message meant for us from Thee
Do what you can and is within your capacity
It is right thing to perform from within as best quality

Echo in your inner conscience which is allowing
Act upon each and every word which you are following
It will not only earn you respect and fame
But lead you to the destiny without any shame

Live in simple way with high ideals and motto
Leave it aside if it doesn’t allow where you want to go
Your life is with purpose and to be taken as mission
You are expected to act in a manner as if with permission

Intelligence and wisdom are two separate entities
They help you to certain level for such niceties
Your action may be seen as example for others
They may become close to cause or ardent followers

Evil doers may suffer miserably at the end
You will have to act as emissary or friend
This is how life is to lead and to be lead
Human psychology and mind is to be clearly read

Victory or defeat should not form the purpose or basis
So many things are said and emphasis is laid in thesis
It is clear vision and wisdom that may lead us to other side
Nothing to worry for future even if you angle narrow or wide

Every thing is done or decided as it would have been
We may try for every possible way or be very keen
Ultimately His wish may prevail and fortune smiles
We are inspired to work for good and go for an extra mile

“I” is to be no where in picture and to be placed before
It is hard fact to be understood and has to come to the fore
It is not derived from any mythology or holy books
It has been long before but not understood by crooks

Nothing comes on the way when you are clear
You are so sure of your goal, without any fear
It is not only your belief that comes to matter
Life becomes easy and good if not better

What matters most if it has no puzzle?
Rain may come with force and dazzle
You may carry on with routine and as usual
It will be very simple and just casual

You are supposed to be yourself and prove what you are
You should stick in and not to go too far
It is simple fact and very easy if you decide it rightly
You may excel in life and lead life smoothly

Seeking The Shadows Of What You Are

Seeking the shadows of what you are
you miss who's standing in the light.
Eternity with its tail in its mouth
can't taste much else in life but itself.
Where did these words come from
just a moment ago out of nowhere,
and if it were to rain, would that be
shallow or deep? And maybe a labyrinth
is just a snake that's swallowed its own head
and is wandering aimlessly in despair
through its own digestive track
like a salmon leaping upstream
through a waterclock with self-similarity
on its mind, oviparous replication,
the material immortality of genetic time.

Nothing's irrelevant or inelegant
if there's nothing to choose from
so everything shines in every mystic detail
as if it had never come unglued in its solitude
and bifurcated its unity into the subject
and the object of its awareness just to have
someone to talk to, an intimate familiar
it could rave at or serenade in a manic love affair
it was having with its own creation
like an artist talking to his masterpiece
with the caress of every sable-haired brush stroke.

Insignificant for the long haul, or famous
for fifteen minutes, either way,
you wouldn't know it by looking
at the fossils we didn't bring back from the moon
or sifting the grain from the chaff
from the ashes of the wheat
the wind scorched like a dragon
on its way to bring rain. Why
drive a nail through your third eye
and delude yourself into believing
you've been crucified, the king
of the waxing year sacrificing
your body parts to ensure a good harvest?

You want the virtues of your noble enemy?
Slay yourself and eat your own heart.
This is your nagual, your tulpa, your mirage,
your nightmare, your doppelganger,
your reflective familiar, your shadow
holographically projected in 3D by the pineal gland
of your third eye tattooed on the skin of a black hole
that is neither an ignominious exit through the grave
or the celebrated entrance into a secret garden,
and it can't be any more empowered than you are,
and there are no walls to walk through
if it wasn't you that built them to keep the poor
from vaulting them to steal your apricots
like the hungry ghosts that haunt
the orchards of your abandoned thoughts.

Savage homeopathy, perhaps, a holy war
of starmaps torn out like pages of sacred text
against the leaves who think they're responsible
for keeping the whole tree they both spring from intact.
The autumn burns like an heretical apostate
that's fallen away like faith in itself.
What nonsense, when they'll both end up
doing a ghost dance on each other's graves
where neither the dead nor the living
can be reunited in peace at the same seance
because the flame of life is duelling with its own candle
like the branch of a spear with the flint-knapped blossom
of the point it's trying to drive home through its own heart.

A lethal waste of energies for echoes
to seek the destruction of their original voice.
When the waves of the light, the sea, the mind
bare their necks and swan
for the double-bladed axe of the moon
that separates things like conceptual consciousness
as if it were cleaving water, and heads come off
like the leading rose-buds of multi-cephalic hydras
that bloom the more they're pruned like zinnias,
even death considers the slaughter an abuse of time.

If you want to live in the house of life as a martyr,
a bodhisattva, a spiritual mujahedin who
blows himself up in the temple of the money-lenders
and discount dove merchants, or even a poet
who enlisted in the ghettos of the Chilean art brigades
like Victor Jara, or Archibald Lampman's
warrior minstrel of the forlorn hope
dying of a heart attack in Ottawa at thirty-six,
or Emily Dickinson listening to a fly buzz when she expired,
the only blood on the blade you fall upon
you should ever taste is your own if you
want to speak to a big-hearted bell of enlightenment
without the forked tongue of a perjured witching wand
or the self-defeating absurdity
of seeking clean water with dirty hands
or trying to reach out to touch the stars
when they're pouring through your fingers
like the sands of an hourglass remembering
all its past lives gathered around the village wells
like telescopes looking through the wrong end of themselves.

Loving You For What You Are

when we met
years back
you are what
you have been

i never
demand for any change
we only content ourselves
with what was there

you are yourself
and that's good enough for me
i am myself
and for what i am
you may take me

we ask nothing more
we simply have to look for that feeling
that makes us one
despite

You Are, You Are

You are you are
Hopefully mistaken
Like old ties
Youll soon be broken down
Like all the rest who tried
You are you are
Something quite surprising
Storys odd
Concerning love
The scene will change for you, you know
You are you are
Just a good reflection
Nothing more
Youd like to take me for the world
To see you leave
You are you are
A living exhibition
Defying age
Like a seasoned veteran
Of men for cash
I know how to hide and wait for you
I know how to wait I wont forget
Exactly what you are
See her shine like stars
Before they burn
See her shine with stars
Before they fade away
Such a shame
The best of fame

What you should be?

Be the mind in the act of finding
Not just what will suffice
But one that will be nice. Find the place
Without a script, the one that gives you
Something
With spontaneity, one that changes you
Into something else, one that transforms
Your present
For the better, and the past that must become merely
A souvenir. You must be someone that is
Living
Not just something else, one that learns the
Speech of the scenes around you
The men and women and children that you meet

Construct a home of this world
Like you are a flower at home in a garden
Have the delicate ears of
The sentiments, the sensationalist expressing
His emotions
As thought there are only two persons
In a very silent room,
Random emotions becoming one
Singing the songs of grief and bliss
In unison,

Have the dialogue of the metaphysician
Twanging with his tongue, uttering the words
Of righteousness,
Holistically,
A mind condescending
With a will to rise
Above this commonness,

Finding satisfaction
Where there is none
Gripping the slippery
Tails of hope

Like a hunk surfing on a stormy sea
Or a woman belly dancing through the night
Or a mother combing her daughter’s hair
Or the father teaching his son a skill,
Be what you are be what you can be
Find some more
Those that may satisfy you

The living
