I actually write film music because I'm classically trained on the piano so as well as songwriting I also write actual film music that could be used for movies like war movies and love movies.

Hope and Light, and Love

You – whose inner strength, I always think
to be the greater than my fluctuating own –
ask, only half humorously, as
business, family support, collapses all around,
for a poem of hope and light and love

and I fall still and silent; for to me
only stillness, silence, are my answer
to those mighty questions of what within ourselves
we have, and have not; lose and find again…

and in the stillness of the silence, because
I am of ‘certain’ yet uncertain age…
hear the family voice still sounding in the ear of memory

of that sweet Stoicism of the Victorian working class:
…‘working’ indeed; even to the work-house…
and ‘class’; yet class with pride; hope (wasn’t the Baptist chapel
built along with Hope Street?): light; and love

that Stoicism (would they know the word?)
that folds its hands onto its tidy lap, when
all around collapses, and says quietly,
“It’s trying.. as the good Lord knows,
for he’s tried me oftentimes enough…”

and Sunday starts and ends the week,
the ‘day of rest’ when God and Man
work hardest, and together..

that sweet Stoicism… that responds
to the muted tea-cup whine of others, with
‘We must just count our blessings, dear…’

or break into the mutual relief of song:
‘Count your blessings, one by one’..

and never was the One more to be sought, whose blessings
are only counted, as sleep’s sheep leap
over the stile of thought,
counted one by one; each one blessing, blest,
containing All -

All, and as you said yourself,
Hope; Light; and Love; these three..

To Live And Love Some More

we open our eyes
must always
open our eyes for
new surprises

we do not close it
for the twists
and turns of life

everyday is a disclosure
every hour
an unfolding of buds into
flowers

spreading scents
pleasing us with its petals
and bright colors

handing us more of
those memories
nothing is discarded
everything is embraced
and kept
and treasured

but like the petals
subject to time
and the seasons
we arrive at the alleys
of wilting
and drying and
crumpling

we too open our eyes
for all these
familiarizing ourselves
with the cycles
of endings and beginnings

the shalls and musts
perhapses and maybes
and all the other
potentials and
possibilities

ah, life is exciting
who does not like to live and love some more?

Peace And Love

Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby peace and love
Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby peace and love
Riding around in a volkswagon van
Thinking of the people upside down in Japan
Staring at the stars in a distant galaxy
Wonderin' if there's someone out there staring back at me singin'
Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby peace and love
Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby peace and love
Lying on the floor
Just playing my guitar
Trying to find the chords for just the way you are
Plane crash flashing on my TV
Well it could have been you baby well it could have been me
We'll never live forever, well baby things could be worse
Cause when we get together we are one with the universe
Sometimes I think I might just move up to Vermont
Open a bookstore or a vegan restaurant
Got crazy karma never harmed a single soul
So if you want to join me than together we'll grow old singin'
Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby peace and love
Peace and love
Peace and love
That's all I'm thinking of baby peace and love

Logic And Love

Logic And Love
(Feldman Chandler)
Love and logic just don't go together
Try to force it, you'll be trying forever
Why discuss it when you're missing the point
Girl
Forget the fakin' all I care is that you're
Chorus:
Making all the right moves
You're making all the moves that hit the spot
You're speaking only half-truths girl
Just tell me all the things I like a lot
Stop thinking you're much too intense
Don't even try to make love make sense
Don't even try to make love make sense
Don't even try to say we're just good friends
Logic and love clash in your head
You don't see reason you just see red
We could argue 'till you're blue in the face girl
The time you're taking is the time you could be
Repeat Chorus
I'm talking logic and love
I'm talking logic and love
Our scientific world demands that everything's
explained
You're an ultra-modern girl
But can't you see there's nothing to be gained
In analyzing love
You're making only false moves
But everything you do still hits the spot
And do you know what that proves girl
That love is far away the best we got, you know
The best of lovers don't have to be friends
Don't even try to make love make sense
Don't even try to make love make sense
Don't even try to say we're just good friends
Don't even try to make love make sense
Don't even try girl don't pretend
I'm talking logic and love
I'm talking logic and love
Logic and love
Logic and love

I Love That Dirty Water! (The Standells)

The eastern world, it is exploding
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'
You're old enough to kill, but not for votin'
You don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're totin'
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'
Eve of Destruction-- Barry McGuire

The Standells sang about the dirty water in the Charles River in Boston

Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston you're my home
Oh, you're the number one place
(1966)
(This observation is not about a soulful, cut time, melodious affirmation about the singer's affinity to polluted water in Massachusetts. However, it is about a river who Christians, Jews and Muslims hold very dear in their hearts.)

Well maybe the Jordan River is not a aqueous cemetery
But if you drink the water,
even touch the water- let alone be baptized,
You could be in trouble,
the water is polluted,
That should make you leery
It appears that the population is going up
And the water level is going down,
In that geographical region
Many turds of goats
or donkeys
or humans are washed away by rain
or by flushing*
-eventually ends in Jordan River
Not to mention the pesticides and fertilizer
That should makes you quiver.

St. John, if you were alive today,
Then you would not make it though a year**
Baptizing people in the Jordan River

Instead people being baptized in Jordan River water
They should possibly get baptized in more purer fluid,
Like Aquafina, Dasani, or wine, soda, liquor, or beer.

5-10-10

Israeli-controlled side of the site, Gidon Bromberg, of Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME) , talks about the dangers.

*'In the middle of the desert we continue to flush our toilets with fresh water rather than using gray water (water that has been used for washing dishes or showering) , and we continue to grow tropical fruits for export, ' Bromberg told AOL. 'We can do much better in reducing water loss, and we need to treat and reuse all of the sewage water that we produce.'

** 'If you drink the water, you're likely to get diarrhea or stomach problems, and if you have a cut, you will probably get a rash. Israel bans people from being baptized here, and the Jordanians advise against it, but it's still hard to stop people.'

Life After War

Being nice is not enough…
A relationship is tough…
Living by the relationship…

If you are ready that’s cool…
But in that way you never…
Finished school…

And the teen age life you…
Never lived…
Protecting your country was …

Your Adams rib…
Now because of what you did…
Joining the army at 17…

That uniform was your dream…
But the conflict that came and went…
Give your life a different scent…

Marriage at such a young age…
Entwined in war gave rage…
Hiding to the world…


Now back home to face the girl…
Her being your wife…
And the war…then that strife…

What an after life…
War rules kelp you living…
Back in the world…
People are not giving…

Sleeping in mud…
Running up and down hills…
This “back to the world”…
Life isn’t real…

After 13 months you still wish to kill…
For that was your only drill…
Now you are an adult…

Living on a whole new boat…
The laws are new and has truly…
Changed…
Now I am somewhat deranged…

Strange…
Bottled…
Up is anger plenty…

Sympathy I don’t have any…
Tears fill my eyes…
Now my life I surmise…

Surprise…

In the mind dead or alive…
The nightmares rise…
Now all tensed up inside…

The least little thing…
And life is disrupted…
Not to mention the demands of a relationship…

Ooooo! I what to bust that lip…
But this calls for a new chip…
Because of the things which I never did…

For in the army my teenage…
Year were hide…
Being a trooper you have this duty…

Making you true to the flag…“Back to the world” a drag…
The people here play tag…
In the world I come from…Tag will get you killed…

Prejudice…has not changed…
In the hood the same old thang…
So now I try to concentrate my brain…

Just to fit in…you know be plain…
But people still thought me insane…
So to God I go…

Prostrating on the floor…
Pray and pray…and pray some more…
The things I did to other…
I dare tell my mother…
With her I could not live…
For deep within I pout…
And at the world I shout…

In the hospital…
Cause shouting isn’t right…
The nightmares get worse each night…

My whole being filling with tears…
Doctors keep putting me on those pills…
Soon they become a thrill…

Is my life real?
Why do I still want to kill?
Leaving the hospital without…the doctors…
Consent…

Reliving the past…
My friends dying all around …
At home they cannot see my pain…
Now my body hears no sound…

After all the dead bodies I found…
Some younger then me…
Damn! Why can’t my government see…

What a teen life they stole …
Now I am middle age…
That’s getting old…

And still to the flag I will give my soul…
Even when they lied to me…
While I was rising my hand…

After I do …I became a man…
So now the after math…
Death seem to smooth…

Why did live…
And not die in that bloody pool…
My death to even the score…

I can’t live like this any more…
My responsibilities are not the same…
People playing silly games…

In the world I live games got you dead…
Crowds give me fear…
I treat them as if hunting a deer…

My relationships are slow…
I grow as time go…
But still down deep inside…

Mountains of shame I hide…
And yet there is this American pride…
What is it we me…

Many friends back in that catastrophe…
My life ain’t no good for me…
Help me…to die…and be a hero…

Let me be among the ARMIES best…
Those who died have pass the test…
Not living in this new world…

Not seeing new rules…
Women I have learn to respect…
They are the only ones who gave a hack…

And the flag…as I die …I still respect…
My friends of that far away land…
I’ll come back again…

Love you my brothers…
For you the brave have no color…


Whisperkwane
swtlamb@yahoo.c om

Dedication to All who keep this home land free…

For the trooper of all wars (VIETNAM) …
I pray everyday…that my life I can take away…
I remember you…all…Hoping the government will as well.

Shout out: to 173rd…the heard 1967-75

Justice Delayed...Justice Denied

A nation raped…
Mute, stunned, indignant
World watched, ashamed…

Cruelty, hate, evil
(Put to shame, even devil)
Drives the mentally ill…

Justice delayed
While we, a messiah await
Or resigned to fate…

Does God Wait
For good sense to prevail…
And love conquers hate…

Justice denied
Shocked, aggrieved wail…
While accused hide…

Who does one blame?
Deeply reflect,
And introspect….

Crazy Like A Sly And Special Fox

I doubt very seriously,
If he is as stupid...
As he wishes others,
To believe him to be?

'Why do you object?
He wants people to accept,
His stupidity.
He himself has admitted it.'

When was the last time you heard,
Anyone admit to being stupid?

'Maybe he is 'special'.
Or either crazy.'

Yeah!
Crazy like a sly and special fox.
With more 'wit' to dropp that's noticeable,
Than not.

'Then...
What are you saying? '
Why isn't he bothered,
That others regard him as stupid? '

No one is that 'stupidly' at peace,
With themselves.

'Well...
What you just said?
Is real stupid.'

William Cowper

Olney Hymn 4: Jehovah-Nissi: The Lord My Banner

By whom was David taught
To aim the deadly blow,
When he Goliath fought,
And laid the Gittite low?
Nor sword nor spear the stripling took,
But chose a pebble from the brook.

'Twas Israel's God and King
Who sent him to the fight;
Who gave him strength to sling,
And skill to aim aright.
Ye feeble saints, your strength endures,
Because young David's God is yours.

Who order'd Gideon forth,
To storm the invaders' camp.
With arms of little worth,
A pitcher and a lamp?
The trumpets made his coming known
And all the host was overthrown.

Oh! I have seen the day,
When with a single word,
God helping me to say,
'My trust is in the Lord,'
My soul hath quell'd a thousand foes
Fearless of all that could oppose.

But unbelief, self-will,
Self-righteousness, and pride,
How often do they steal
My weapon from my side!
Yet David's Lord, and Gideon's friend,
Will help his servant to the end.

The Bond of Star-gazing

Son, his father says,
why do you stare at the stars?
How can something millions
of miles away be of any use
to us?

Son, of what good is a nest-full
of blue-speckled birds’ eggs?
They won’t feed your children;
nobody will buy them.

Son, why do you plant
marigolds and zinnias
in furrows that could
be used for lettuce
and radishes?

Hummingbirds, butterflies,
wild ducks on the pond
over there: pretty, but we
have chores to do,
by the sweat of our brows.

****

One clear night, though,
walking out into the moonlit field,
the son saw a man standing
among the zinnias and marigolds,
looking upward:
Father, why do you stare at the stars?

Music and love everywhere

I'll bring out the charge of the love brigade,
It's winter in the air once again,
Once a year it'll come again,
The songs of Christmas in a parade

Giving out all the joy to all,
Give a little love and joy to you,
Take a little love and joy from me,
I want to share it with you

The bells will be ringing,
With music and love everywhere,
The joy ness of being happy,
Will be fun like a happy millionaire

Life is Music And Love

Listening to Cavaliera Rusticana, Rudi’s
favourite, I don’t know it well, male voices
like hobos and flutes, golden shine in the
brown hues, silver sopranos flashing in deep
ocean water, the music calls for conducting
moving to the music, Rudi’s arms around me

I love him, love the music, vibrantly alive, a
celebration of life, rhythm and notes bring
love to me, music enclosing everything, a
framework that confers meaning, Rudi’s
voice a velvet cloth in which he wraps me
safely, soft, warm, caressing my heart

Spinning a safety net, catching me when I
fall into nightmares, building a bulwarks
against fear for the future, against the pain
of being born sinful, being incomplete – he
brings completion and infinity, the most
wonderful feeling of security, music and

Harmony, I fly on your music, swaying to
the beat, life is music and love to me…

Don't Make Me Come Over There And Love You

Don't make me come over there and love you I'd be beside you in a single bound.
Don't make me come over there and love you, 'cause I will, right now
I don't need any explanation for why I crave all your honey talk.
Don't make me come over there and love you, 'cause it's a short walk.
You better tone down your persuasion. Start behavin', before I go and fall apart.
My heart's been on a long vacation, but now it's beatin like a cha-cha-cha.
Don't make me come over there and love you, 'cause I will, right now.
(Music Break)
You better tone down your persuasion. Start behavin', before I go and fall apart.
Don't make me come over there and love you, because it's lookin' like a perfect spot.
Don't make me come over there and love you and give all I got.
Don't make me come over there and love you, 'cause I will, right now,
yes, I will, right now.
Don't make me come over there and love you

Summer Time And Love

Summer time and love,
And of the muse of the birds that flies up high;
But one day i will open the doors of your love,
Because i am the one that you are looking for.
Seek me and you will find me,
Love me and you will know me,
For this is like the summer time of love;
And your love needs my sweet heart.

Pink, Our Shrink, and Love, I Think

The only things I can think
(Besides think)
That rhyme with pink
Are stink
And wink
And blink
And sometimes I think I need this shrink
Because I hate pink
As the things it rhymes with stink
Like facial functions and thoughts I think
Then write down here in maroon ink
And as said by our shrink
The problem with pink
Is that it can't express the love that I think
And wink
To you as I blink
And now dare to write in maroon ink
As between you and me, it's a link
We both hate the color, I think
Because this poem makes us tickled pink
As we wait in the office of our shrink
Who we hate as much as the color pink

My Maternal Uncle!

He died a long agao
And his name is Whinny!
But I met him last night
At my graveyard shift
in the convenient shop.
He said his name is Johnny!
But I don't see any difference between them
Unless his silvery denture.
Uncle Whinny knows the pedigree of English Horses & Jockeys as well as silent movies,
Though he's never been to England
And Mr. Johnny is fond of money
Because he waited for his balance penny!
When I gave him an old coin
He said he prefers a shiny one!
He gulped a large quantity from his miniature bottle of cough syrup
But I sniffed that could be an illicit liquor?
O Whinny, Johnny and penny
Gave me an idea to write these nonchalant characters of the jaundice life!

for the dead souls in my family I meet them on & off?

Feelings And Love 21 June 2009

Masaru Emoto ‘The Secret Life of Water’ lives
next to my bed, every night I look at photos of
geometric water crystals formed when words -
You Are Beautiful – Innocence - Thank You
in Tagalog and Japanese - Marital Love -
are pasted on water containers

Staring at the beautiful crystals formed when
music was played to water before crystallised;
Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, Schubert’s
Ave Maria, Mendelssohn’s Wedding March,
Edelweiss and Amazing Grace, wishing I
knew what Whispering Hope

Langenhoven’s Lullaby for Liefstetjie and Die
Lorelei, Ich weiss nicht was soll es bedeuten
would have looked like, looking intently at
the hollow, suffocating image formed by
the word Hate – and the crocodile eye
resulting from September 11,2001

Always delighting in the idea that should human
language disappear, the language of water
crystals will enable consciousness to
converse about feelings and love...

And Love Goes On

Music by: maurice white, david foster, verdine white & larry dunn
Lyrics by: maurice white & brenda russel
I would be so willing to give you all I got
Youre a special lady, forget me not
I could be so tender, for the likes of you
Let my heart surrender
And love goes on
On and on
Your heart beats strong
As love goes on
Everyday, Im wishing for that day to come
Feeling superstitious hoping shes the one
One day Im lonely, next with plenty smiles
Love I find amusing
And love goes on
On and on
Your heart beats strong
As love goes on
Oh, oh, oh, and if we cant work it out
You should know, without a doubt
I will always be the one you can turn to
A friend until the end, no matter where weve been
Sometimes you cant hold on
You got to give it space c yea yea
And love goes on
On and on
Your heart beats strong
As love goes on
Baby we can work it out
Yes I really love you, and without a doubt
I can make you happy,
Plant good memory that will last forever
And love goes on
On and on
Your heart beats strong
As love goes on

C'mon And Love Me

She's a dancer, a romancer
I'm a Capricorn and she's a Cancer
She saw my picture in a music magazine
When she met me, said she'd get me
Touched her hips and told me that she'd let me
I took her hand, baby this is what I said
I said baby, baby, don't you hesitate
'Cause I just can't wait
Lady, won't you take me down to my knees
You can do what you please
Come on and love me
I'm a man, I'm no baby
And you're lookin' every inch a lady
You're good lookin' and you're lookin' like you should be good
You were distant, now you're nearer
I can feel your face inside the mirror
The lights are out and I can feel you, baby, with my hand
So baby, baby, don't you hesitate
'Cause I just can't wait
Lady, won't you take me down to my knees
You can do what you please
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Baby, baby, don't you hesitate
'Cause I just can't wait
Lady, won't you take me down to my knees
You can do what you please
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Come on and love me
Come on and love me

Women and love

Let me a seat in your mind my friend
To sit and share with you what've experienced
Is all about women and love
My friend, don't fall in love
But stand firm in love
Because those that fell in love yesterday
They're mentally injured today
In the street today,
-they're the able casualties of divorce
While those that stood, are the pillar of peace
My friend, love is dangerous
Also some women are poisonous
Many men have tasted them and died
Coz women aren't toast bread
Which you can just eat and be satisfied
My friend, don't give woman all your heart
Because little you gave to her, she'll toy with it
She'll cook your heart
Till you're dead
Before you're being buried,
She'll cleave to another man from the royals
Listen, women are not mere rivers
-That men can just take their baths
They're as deep as river Niger
My friend, if truely you've lost in her river
O you need money before you can cross over
My friend, women don't recognise love but money
All because bridges over their rivers are bricks covered with money
Don't be in haste to love
Since you must love
Finally, my friend let my words flood your veins
And be wise like tortoise
