If You Want to Keep Your Peace Secured

I've been in one spot for twenty one years.
Mended from several heartbreaks.
And dried my own tears.
I know I've lost my mind...
At least a few times or more.
And the few people I knew had little to say.
Or bothered to knock on my opened door.

And today! TODAY...I get visitors.
Who claim to be my friends.
But I also know this much too well...
Folks only come around,
When they are near a dead end...
With no money to spend!
So I sat listening to 'them' ask...
'How have you been? '
And when I said I was doing great...
I was given from them big fake grins!
And I offered to them my hand and said...
'I'm so glad ya'll came by!
I need a loaf of bread.'

They quickly got up and left!
And that is how I have managed,
To keep my peace of mind.
Especially in a place...
Like this hometown of mine!

I can't wait for that fresh gossip,
To go around a few times!
And...
If you,
Any of you
Want to keep your peace secured...
Tell folks you ain't got a dime!
That will do it!

Unless...
You just happen to be cooking,
Collard greens with fried chicken wings.
Potato salad and yams,
WITH ice tea?
Unexpectedly?
You 'then' have folks,
You can't get rid of fast enough!

Why Would You Want To Open Your Door?

Why would I want to be a part of your life,
Right now?
When you had...
Never been around to give me reason.

And,
Why would I want to be a part of your life,
Right now?
When gone is that season.

And why,
Would I try now...
When I've been denied,
To love you...
Then.

And why,
Would you want to open your door?
When you said never see you,
Again.
Or anymore!

I remember then...
Loving you was all I wanted.
When I thought you wanted love too,
For you to begin.

I remember then...
When my nights and days were haunted,
Wanting just to have you,
As my only friend...
To depend on!

And why,
Would I try now...
When I've been denied,
To love you...
Then.

And why,
Would you want to open your door?
When you said never see you,
Again.
Or anymore.

Why would I want to be a part of your life,
Right now?
When you had...
Never been around to give me reason.

And why,
Would I try now...
When I've been denied,
To love you...
Then.

And why,
Would you want to open your door?
When you said never see you,
Again.
Or...
Anymore!

My Poems Tell The Truth of Who I Am

MY POEMS TELL THE TRUTH OF WHO I AM

My poems tell the truth of who I am
Perhaps it is not a happy enough truth
Perhaps it is not an aesthetically interesting enough truth
Perhaps it is not the truth you want or need ever
But it my truth
And if it gives you some hint of your truth
And if it makes you understand your life more
And if it makes you a bit less alone
And if it gives you something which is in some way good for you
I suppose then I should take perhaps some small satisfaction from it.

Tell The Truth

(by eric clapton and bobby whitlock)
Tell the truth. tell me whos been fooling you?
Tell the truth. whos been fooling who?
There you sit there, looking so cool
While the whole show is passing you by.
You better come to terms with your fellow men soon, cause...
The whole world is shaking now. cant you feel it?
A new dawn is breaking now. cant you see it?
Tell the truth. tell me whos been fooling you
Tell the truth. whos been fooling who?
It doesnt matter just who you are,
Or where youre going or been.
Open your eyes and look into your heart.
The whole world is shaking now. cant you feel it?
A new dawn is breaking now. cant you see it?
I said see it, yeah, cant you see it?
Cant you see it, yeah, cant you see it?
I can see it, yeah.
Tell the truth. tell me whos been fooling you
Tell the truth. whos been fooling who?
Hear what I say, cause every word is true.
You know I wouldnt tell you no lies.
Your times coming, gonna be soon, boy.

You Don't Miss Your Water ('Til The Well Runs Dry)

As I sail with you across the finest oceans
On a way to find the key to our emotions
Together we will move the clouds to brighter days
Some people question what I say
Tried to break up you and me
But I know this love between us is growing stronger
You can call me whenever from wherever
Just remember that
I'll be there
Through all the stormy weather
Us break up never
No we'll be together
Forever

[Chorus:]
You don't miss your water 'til the well runs dry
But I believe so strongly in you and I
Can somebody answer me the question why
You don't miss your water til the well runs dry

As I close my eyes
Sit back while reminiscing
Of when we used to fuss and fight but end up kissing
There may be sad and pain for time so long to wait
But in my heart you'll always be everything and more to me
For I know this love between us is growing stronger
You can call me whenever from wherever
Just remember that
I'll be there
Through all the stormy weather
Us break up never
No we'll be together
Forever

[Chorus]

For you are always on my mind
You are always on my mind
Girl you know that you
You are always
You are always on my mind
You are always forever

[Chorus]

You don't miss your water girl no
But I believe so strongly in you and I yeah
Can somebody answer me the question why
Cause you don't miss your water 'til the well runs dry yeah listen
If you ever get the feeling
You wanna play around starting cheating

I Don't Have The Guts To Tell The Truth Anymore

of the nine reasons
i had given you
there is only one
which is true:

i lost the guts
to tell the truth
because it is no
longer there
in the first place

if there is any
it is concealed
in ten colors
layered by
twenty clothes
in the darkness
of thirty walls.

Just Tell The Truth

It's a lie! !
So, just tell the truth;
Nollywood,
Bollywood,
Hollywood!
And like the Black Hawk helicopter;
But, this love is from a border town.
Looms, grooms, brooms, rooms, booms, dooms;
And like a crucial meeting in the land of your muse!
But your projected love was seen towards the location of your lover.

Tell the truth and shame the devil

I told the truth, I have shame the devil.i told god the truth not the devil when you push that pedal you have told the truth a shame the devil.

God vs Devil, God the truth and the light, then you have the devil the father of all lies in the prince of darkness.his soul black like the midnight sky, his soul bright up the world.

Tell the truth and shame the devil, my soul ripes water when i tell the truth.so be cool play it by god rule.

I Write to Tell the Truth I Have Known

I DREAMED I WAS A POEM

I dreamed I was a poem
And the universe read and reread me-
Until waking up I understood
I would never be written again.

I WRITE TO TELL THE TRUTH I HAVE KNOWN

I write to tell the truth I have known -
But there is so much truth
And so much life unrecognized and unremembered-
Most of my life has gone by
Unknown to me-
And even my most intense moments
Cannot be remembered so as to be re- experienced.

Tell The One Who Sent You

Tell the man who sent you that i love you,
For i want to taste the sweet of your lips;
Tell the woman who sent you that i love you,
And i want to taste the sweet of your love;
For the red pond is with you and,
I will like to swim in this red pond.

Anything You Want Me To Do

I Love You
But I've been away from you so long
God take me back to where I belong baby
I'll do what you want me to
I'll do what you want me to do,

Why do you feel like making me so sad
Girl I'll do whatever you want me to
I'll do what you want me to do
I'll do anything that you want me to
Love's the thing thats made us happy,
Love's the thing thats made us sad,
If we dont get back together,
We might lose our romance
Might not get a second chance...
I Love You
And I wanna be your man
If you tell me that I can baby
You know I'll do whatever you want me to
I'll do what you want me to do
I'll do anything that you want me to do
Love's the thing thats made us happy,
Love's the thing thats made us sad,
If we dont get back together,
We might lose our romance
Might not get a second chance...
I Love You
And I wanna be your man
If you tell me that I can baby
I'll do whatever you mant me to
I'll do what you want me to do
I'll do anything that you want me to do
I'll do what you want me to
I'll do what you want me to do
I'll do anything that you want me to do
Everything you want me to
I'll do what you want me to do
I'll do anything that you want me to do
Every every every every every every every every every
I'll do what you want me to do
I'll do anything that you want me to do
Everything
Everything you want me to do
I'll do what you want me to do
I'll do anything that you want me to do

Cry If You Want

Once it was just innocence
Once it was just innocence
Brash ideas and insolence
Brash ideas and insolence
But you will never get away
But you will never get away
With the things you say today
With the things you say today
But you can try if you want
But you can try if you want
Dont you get embarrassed when you read the precious things you said
Dont you get embarrassed when you read the precious things you said
Many many years ago when life appeared rosy red
Many many years ago when life appeared rosy red
No one ever shared your bed
No one ever shared your bed
Nothing ever filled your head
Nothing ever filled your head
Except yourself and little ted
Except yourself and little ted
And scary dreams that you were dead.
And scary dreams that you were dead.
Dont you want to hide your face
Dont you want to hide your face
When going through your teenage books
When going through your teenage books
And read the kind of crap you wrote
And read the kind of crap you wrote
About ban the bomb and city crooks
About ban the bomb and city crooks
Think about how long it took
Think about how long it took
To get over that sudden yuk
To get over that sudden yuk
When in the mirror you would look
When in the mirror you would look
Well now my son youre well in stook
Well now my son youre well in stook
Cry if you want cry if you want
Cry if you want cry if you want
Didnt you writh in anger when you saw the man in his big car
Didnt you writh in anger when you saw the man in his big car
Didnt you drive a banger and a gallon didnt get you far
Didnt you drive a banger and a gallon didnt get you far
Should have been a famous star
Should have been a famous star
But that aint what you really are
But that aint what you really are
You could shout your last harrah
You could shout your last harrah
While they are propping up the bar
While they are propping up the bar
Maybe things were better then
Maybe things were better then
Before you led a promised life
Before you led a promised life
Rash commitements and heavy raps and left wing spiel all compromised
Rash commitements and heavy raps and left wing spiel all compromised
You fall in love with others wives
You fall in love with others wives
Drive em nuts with empty lies
Drive em nuts with empty lies
Angry cos you lost the prize
Angry cos you lost the prize
Forgot the color of their eyes.
Forgot the color of their eyes.
Cry if you want cry if you wnat
Cry if you want cry if you wnat
Let your tears flow let your past go
Let your tears flow let your past go
Dont you get embarrassed when you think about the way you were
Dont you get embarrassed when you think about the way you were
Yesterday the day before when you were young with much to learn
Yesterday the day before when you were young with much to learn
Arent you glad its your last term
Arent you glad its your last term
No more acting lowly worm
No more acting lowly worm
You can make the suckers squirm
You can make the suckers squirm
When you tell them how much you earn
When you tell them how much you earn
Dont you feel ashamed at all the bitterness you keep inside
Dont you feel ashamed at all the bitterness you keep inside
Does your ego save your face i had a go - I really tried
Does your ego save your face I had a go - I really tried
Now you know your leaders lied
Now you know your leaders lied
Does it stop you acting snide
Does it stop you acting snide
Or are you still a boy that cried
Or are you still a boy that cried
Tears now surely long since dried.
Tears now surely long since dried.
Cry if you want cry if you want
Cry if you want cry if you want

If Ever You Want Me

If ever you
want me

...to go

only tell me so
& I'll go

quietly as the melting snow.

If ever you
don't love me

...anymore

only tell me so
& I'll go

quietly as a fading rainbow

& cry

someplace far from here
(you need never know)

I quiet
as melted snow

...a dead rainbow.

You Are What You See If You Want To Be

In a symphony of harmony and muted voices
Where what makes your life is a matter of opinion
Where love conquers all and death has no dominion
There are no answers only your choices

Some blame can be placed on disco mania
Or the yuppies created from Reaganomics
Crack taking folks higher than aeronautics
And pop stars rhyming with schizophrenia

On front lawns dawns the day’s complications
This is so common and thus is much proper
Where you can make more cake than Betty Crocker
Must not cheap with the conversations

You are what you see if you want to be
Legendary gallant or the infamous
Legendary valance of the incubus
There’s always 2 ways to travel 1 street

Go Tell The Congregation

Here I am
There I was
Here I go
Just follow me
If it was
Then it can
And we know
How it will be
When it was
Just because
Yes you know
Its not a dream
Its just all
Cmon yall
Ill tell you
What I mean
When you want to lose your blues
Go tell the congregation
When theres nothing left that you can do
Go tell the congregation
When you want to tell the truth
Go tell the congregation
When the devils got a hold of you
Go tell the congregation
Dont look back
Stay on track
Its a fact
A lesson to me
Keep in stride
With your pride
Now you know
How strong you can be
Theres no time
Draw a line
Yes I know
That you can know me
Look alive
No surprise
Everybody wants to be free
Everything is everything

If I'm Not The One You Want

If I'm not the one you want
Take your time to figure out
I'm starin at your picture every night
The scent of you still lingers in my mind
I wonder if your alone and feel alright
And the sun has come out of the clouds
And sometimes when I listen to our song
The night seems so cold and far too long
I wanna call you up cuz in the end
I keep writing letters to my garbage can
Bridge:
Lately, feels like I'm going crazy and
Baby, come and lay down beside me
Chorus:
If I'm not the one you want
Then who's he?
Take your time to figure out
And you'll see
If I'm not the one you want
Then maybe
I'll be the one you need
I feel likes it's on you I can depend
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Enough of building castles in the sand
Why can't we be forever
(Bridge)
(Chorus 2x's)
Somewhere in the back of my mind
I know that you will be mine
And somehow
Wish I could rewind
And leave all my worries behind
And If I'm not the one you want
I'll be the one you need
Take your time to figure out
I'll be the one you need
(Chorus)
I'll be the one you need

All You Want

I'd like to watch you sleep at night
to hear you breathe by my side
And though sleep leaves me behind
there's nowhere I'd rather be
And now our bed is oh so cold
my hands feel empty
no one to hold
I can sleep what side I want
It's not the same with you gone
Oh if you'd come home
I'll let you know that
All you want
Is right here in this room
All you need
Is sitting here with you
All you want

It's been three years
One night apart
but in that night you tore my heart
If only you had slept alone
If those seeds had not been sown

Oh you could come home and you would know that
All you want
Is right here in this room
All you need
Is sitting here with you
All you want

I hear your key turning in the door
I won't be hearing that sound anymore
And you and your sin
can leave the way you just came in
send my regards to her

I hope you've found that
All you want
Is right there in that room
All you need
Is sitting there with you
All you want

I'd like to watch you sleep at night
to hear you breathe by my side

You Want To Grow Old Like The Carters

Let other leaders
Retire
To play golf
& write
Memoirs
About bombing
Villages
They've never seen.

Growing old
Presents a peril
They may not
Expect.

It is to lose
One's soul
In trivia
& irrelevance
The nerve
Endings
Blunted
By the constant
Pressure
Of moral
Indifference.

Growing old
A curse:
Not even
Generally speaking
Able
To relate
To whoever
Shares

Your house. Not the mansion
You inhabit
On the
Lovely stolen hill
Above the sea
Or the interior one:
The darkened
Desolate
Shack.

You want to grow old
Like
The Carters;
Curing blindness
&
Building houses
For
The Poor;

Making friends of those
Who believe
They must fight.

You want to grow old
Like
The Carters
Holding hands
With someone
You love
&
Riding bicycles
Leisurely
Where the ground
Is well known
& perfectly
Flat.

You want to find
And keep to the path
Laid down
Inside you
Such a long time
Ago.

You want to grow old
Like
The Carters:
Serene. Eyes
Twinkling
To be accused
Of
Not getting
It right.

Upfront, upright.
Speaking what to you is true.

A person rich in Mothers.
Beloved.

And:
Honoring what is black
In you.
