Bulk of Your Talents Clearly On Display

Your campaign to defame,
And slander my name in shame...
Has in fact helped to keep my integrity intact.
And those who are aware of your attacks,
Wonder about those skills you claim to have?
Since your abilities have been limited,
To narrow minded tactics.
With the bulk of your talents clearly on display.

The One Clearly Who Has Arrived

One's attempt to reveal honesty and truth,
Is like accepting the invitation...
To attend a masquerade party,
And without costume...
No one has a clue as to who one is!

Since everyone has been accustomed to charade.
And not to do it...
Isolates and degrades,
The one clearly who has arrived...
And to everyone's surprise is unknown

Clearly Love

(diane berglund/jim phillips)
Where am I when youre not here
I see you but were not clear
You wouldnt know
How could I show you
Where to look when Im not here
You can hold and have me near
But when I go
How can I show you love
I just dont know
Who am I when you are you
I just dont know what to do
But when were here
Its all so clearly love

Shows As Being Clearly Exposed

If someone is so determined,
By a going out of their way...
To make another look as if crazed.
And a fool.
Shouldn't they at least not display,
Having the experience as evidence...
To convince those listening,
That they just may be admitting...
Something about themselves,
That was not intended for anyone to know?
But shows as being clearly exposed.

Clearly Not the Leeches

The choice is quite clear.
On one side are those,
Of decadent minds.
Breeders of secrets and deceit.
Experienced at it.
And they want their defects known.

On the other hand...
You have those who are thoughtful and concern.
Honest with their assessments.
And do not deny,
There are lessons they need to learn.

But they are clearly not the leeches...
Who taught everyone how to enjoy,
Dignifying themselves...
As they do backstrokes in cesspools.

The Landscape So Obscure

The mists that linger across the moor,
Drifting and swirling above the ground,
Are eerie as they travel around,
Making the landscape so obscure.

But as they rise up sleepy slow,
So gradually the world appears,
Taking away those phantasmic fears,
When recognising the place you know.

With this curtain spread wide, over the land,
Dense space is linked with soundless time,
The cloak released then starts to climb,
Raised up by God's almighty hand.

Those Born In Obscure Times

Those born in obscure times
Do not remember their way.
We, children of Russia's frightful years
Cannot forget a thing.

Incinerating years!, do you bring tidings
of madness or of hope?
The days of war, the days of freedom
Have left a bloody sheen on our faces.

There is a muteness - the tocsin bell
Has made us close our lips.
In our hearts, once so ardent,
There is a fateful emptiness.

Let the croaking ravens
Take flight above our deathbed -
O Lord, O Lord, may those more worthy than us,
Behold Thy kingdom!

Obscure

How obscure
To heal a heart full of hatred
Through the light of forgiveness...

How obscure
To cure blindness
Through the light of open-mindedness...

How obscure
To cure deafness
Through the light of consciousness...

How obscure
To cure dumbness
Through the light of intelligence...

How obscure...
To heal a hand of hostility
Through the light of kindness...


How obscure
To cure a paralytic
Through the light of liberty...

How obscure
To cure sickness
Through the light of benevolence...

How obscure to understand
To heal physicality
Through the presence of spirituality

Others See Clearly

You went out of your way...
To have me appear to be a fool.
Gathered with your relatives and close friends...
And made sure you had them believe that too!
You remarked about my attempts,
And embellished them with criticisms meant.
Until you felt your actions sealed...
Me as a joke,
To provide your zest and zeal!

You went out of your way...
To have me appear to be a fool.
But I wonder today what your thoughts are now?
Since what you set out to prove...
Has made others see clearly,
Which one of us can be certified now...
To be that fool you saw,
Had to be obviously you!

Congratulations!
Your efforts have been duly noted!

Clearly You Have Made This Understood

Clearly you have made this understood,
Identifying to recognize creativity...
Is not a part of your neck of the woods.

I've taken it into consideration,
This inability you have can devastate.

But taking a chance to think independently,
With exploring done...
That does not follow me.
Just may lead you to something genuine.
And on my insights you will not depend.

Clearly you have made this understood,
Identifying to recognize creativity...
Is not a part of your neck of the woods.

But responding to my findings,
Found to be original...
You can taste and nibble.
But declaring yourself to be a chef?
Will not be advantageous to your best effort.

Your Signature Of Approval Clearly Appears

If you are one...
And there are many.
You are not alone.
Who sat on the sidelines...
And done nothing but complain.
To condone as shown.
With a choice to defame and claim...
The ones making attempts to uplift others,
You convinced those listening...
Sought names of fame.

Guess what?
Congratulations.
No need to get up from your rut.

And your activities have been,
To ensure they are publicly shamed!
In a very successfully conducted campaign.

Guess what?
Congratulations.
No need to get up from your rut.

The blight you see you wish would leave...
Has the mark of deceivers on it!
And your signature of approval clearly appears.
Those you jeered whether in whispers or cheers,
Had nothing to do with the reception of your wishes.

Today I Clearly Understand

I have been blessed with several talents,
I could have earned a dollar from.
And drove around in a Bentley...
To park in front of my home in Baldwin Hills.
And leading a life free of paying the usual bills.

Many an argument I had with God.
Who sought to block my temptation to greed.
'You will do as I say!
Not as you please.' God would say over and over,
To me.

And today I clearly understand,
Why God selected me to write...
With a communication done that fits His will.
In a giving I can now appreciate.
As a value is placed not too many can duplicate.

Earning and obtaining a higher consciousness.
With a witnessing of the power of God.
And a stress free mentality...
That lets God do what God does best.
Realizing God protects those who addresses His wishes 'First'.

If You Want To See Clearly

there will be doubts, there are abundant confusions
in our mnds sometimes
about someone,
someone so close
like two bodies fusing
like two sheets of paper pasted on stronger bonds

in such that
it is hard to distinguish one from the other
mirror images

oh, it is hard to see
when you two are closer than close
when eyes meet too close
that they close when they feel

how can you ever see?

if you want to see clearly
leave
stay far away
stay high, stay above what ordinarily places you
under these circumstances
of intimacy

leave, go away and from that far
you have the proper distance to clearly see beyond
the fingers that close
somewhere
only to open again and feel a certain warmth

will it be the same someone?
think with your heart and not with your mind
the distance shall seal
what was lacking in that closeness
that certain blindness
found in those eyes wide open

I Can See Clearly Now

I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshinin' day
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshinin' day
Oh yes, I can make it now the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshinin' day (ooh...)
Look all around,
There's nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead,
There's nothing but blue skies
I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here's the rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshinin' day
It's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshinin' day
Real, real, real, real bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshinin' day
Yeah, hey, it's gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshinin' day

He Is Clearly a Winner

He has been declared a loser,
But his appearance has been felt.
And those who would like to see him defeated,
Have exposed themselves to be who they are.
And what they have been!
Without showing their reflections at all!
The voices they have kept hidden,
Now loud in objection
Have shown those around the world...
That he is a man of integrity!

So many had given up hope,
That one like him actually existed...
On shores where crooks,
Stood high and mighty in the limelight!

He may be declared a loser,
By those who choose to view him that way!
However...
He is clearly a winner to millions,
Who have grown tired of watching thieves succeed!
And the greedy bleed the needy.
Creating a downslide...
That has been gaining momentum,
For decades!
And they wish that he should fail...
To continue their ignorance.
With a hope and a desire that it prevails.
But none of it inspires!
That is why that too soon expires!

Clearly Confused

She was clearly confused
Bewildered and bemused

How can it be called a civil war?
Brooding on it more and more

Dining on some jumbo shrimp
That waiter is such a wimp

Need more sweet and sour sauce
If only she had some dental floss

Hoping the bill wasn't pretty ugly
Pants are fitting a little more snugly

All in all, the meal was awfully good
Waistline was tight after she stood

Her car is parked by a Dodge Ram
Take 4th St. to avoid a traffic jam

A genuine-imitation leather purse
With a matching wallet, of course

Need to stop for some Icy Hot
Using it more often than not

It's now new and improved
Wish that store hadn't moved

A detailed summary, still to write
About that incident overnight

When the airplane crash landed
It all seems so underhanded

Was it a Peace-Keeper missile?
Admission only when it's unofficial

Working in military intelligence
Involves a certain unpleasantness

End up another unsolved mystery
In the dust bin of  forgotten history

I Can't Wait

Turned the page, Between the lines
I could read it so clearly
And every word, So defined
Turned my heart to weary.
Pressed against, An ear to wall
Everyone kept on racing
My mind was closed, My eyes were shut
But i could feel my body pacing.
I think i'm falling
I think i'm falling
I cant wait to be back home
A feeling you will never know
I cant wait to be alone
It seems like it was so long ago.
All this time, From day to day
The minutes pass, Your still waiting
I bear the pain, The final frown
Constantly still knocking.
Everything is so obscure
Its hard to tell but im leaving
The thrill is gone, but afterall
If looks could kill im still breathing.
I think i'm falling
I think i'm falling
I cant wait to be back home
A feeling you will never know
I cant wait to be alone
It seems like it was so long ago.
I never knew
There were stranger shdes
Fading fast from night to day.
I never knew.
I cant wait to be back home
A feeling you will never know
I cant wait to be alone
It seems like it was so long ago.

In Flagrante Delicto

At least the mood swings are still the same,
came home as a martyr in distress - no pill
can stop one from being an idiot - mistakes
proliferate and clearly indicate I can't make
the grade - cannot concentrate

Using the Internet is only sometimes right
and mostly wrong, I can never guess which,
should read the green law dictionary to stop
being caught in flagrante delicto for not
using a really authoritative source

Cannot force myself to care enough about
every little rule in every obscure didactic
book, sorry for myself - just to find my
sorrows disappear, I become as happy
as a woodland sprite because

The world is such a wonderful place, nothing
people can do to me can change the marvels
hidden within reality and though I can never
please my peers being me, I cannot become
someone else, not in a million years

It is a miracle others put up with me, in a just
universe I would have been stoned to death or
cursed for my inability to express in prescribed
terms - I'm privileged to be allowed to live!

What Appears Is Clearly Here

Foolish are the ones,
Who believe something they have done...
Is forever etched in stone,
Unchanged.
With claims they own 'discoveries'
Always to remain the same!

For them these days come to amaze.
Some will be dazed.
And left crazed.

For them these days come to amaze...
With few left wishing,
For what's been missed.

For them these days come to amaze.
Some will be dazed.
And left crazed.

A lifting of a consciousness,
Hits!
What is reminisced,
Has been dismissed.
A freshness has arrived,
Upon the lips and ears.
And what appears...
Is clearly here!

A lifting of a consciousness,
Hits!
What is reminisced,
Has been dismissed.
A freshness has arrived,
Upon the lips and ears.
And what appears...
Is clearly here!

Foolish are the ones,
Who believe something they have done...
Is forever etched in stone,
Unchanged.
With claims they own 'discoveries'
Always to remain the same!

For them these days come to amaze.
Some will be dazed.
And left crazed.

For them these days come to amaze...
With few left wishing,
For what's been missed.

A lifting of a consciousness,
Hits!
What is reminisced,
Has been dismissed.
A freshness has arrived,
Upon the lips and ears.
And what appears...
Is clearly here!
