What's wrong with our world?

Why are people abused
Why are people shot
Why do people commit suicide
Why are people anorexic and bulimic
Why do people care more about money than family
Why do people call themselves fat or ugly

Why do people die
Why do people tell you they love you and take it back
Why do people hurt each other
Why are people raped
Why do people cut themselves
Why do people hate their lives
Why do teenagers get pregnant
Why do people call each other names
Why are people raciest
Why are people depressed
Why are people put in mental hospitals

Why do people not care what happens to them
Why do people care what others think of them

What Do You Want

What do you want?

Is it flowers, candy, a home, or all three?

What do you want?

What is it?

Can't you tell me?

What actually runs in our veins?

What actually runs in our veins?
Blood, water and oxygen
Or the spirit that lives the body
Food, poison, and mineral
Or the feeling that moves the body
Pain, cold, and fear
Or the heat that calls the body

What we worship guides our thirst...

Only he God can charge or judge
The ink, that pores-out its blood.
That algae-spore" of each, dreams-drudge,
That made its way—out; from the crud.

"Only he who's skipped, between the stone-
Rocks of the alternant—current
Knows where each" lost breath, lays sewn.
All are archaic, indulgent.

"What we worship guides our thirst...
The mountain pastures, the glassy-glade.
The foot-pounding-city-streets, cloudburst:
Life's passing" promenade.

What Do You Want?

You watch them walk down the hallway
Hand in hand
They are happy and it shows

Your heart longs enviously
Your mind urges you away
You know the bad

But there's always a flip side to the coin
Your heart's been broken
But before that we're the good times

When you were hand in hand
When you were holding and being held
Confusion is infuriating and irritating

But you want that feeling again
The butterflies in your stomach
When you look into his eyes

You don't know what you want
Is it worth the pain?
Is it worth the pleasure?

What do you want?

To Address What Is Best For Our Children

With a beginning to address what is best for our children,
Would a complete isolation of them become protested?
Would a total masquerading to keep them unknown,
Spare them from a mediocrity condoned.
To leave them competent with a rare ability to think.

And will those preferring to raise their children alone,
On their own...
Feel the heat of rejection from those who believe,
Being idealistic is too unreal.
Although a conformity to a normalcy,
Is apparently nonexistent...
The emphasis has been on the marketing of hype.
And not truths to spoil presentations.

What Do You Want Me To Do?

I tried to do the things in my own way
I tried to do what people say
but I was going nowhere fast
And now I'm turning to you at last
(1) What do you want me to do
What so you want me to do
What do you want me to do, Lord
I can see the lights of home
But I can't get there on my own
I can see the landing strip
But I need you to guide my ship
[Repeat (1)]
I've been a fool and I've been a clown
I've let the enemy turn me around
I've wasted love and I've wasted time
I've been proud and I've been blind
There's such a lot of things to change
A whole world to arrange
And if you show me how
I'll begin right now
[Repeat (1)]
What do you want me to do, Lord
What do you want me to do, Lord
"Cause I'm listenin'
I'm listenin'
Lord, I'm listenin'
I'm listenin'

That's what causing problems in our world

That's what causing problems in our world
people without the moral on the board

I wish there was a university with moral degree
everybody has to have it from the boss to employee

All they teach our children is profit and more profit
do it even you have to legally or ilegally cheat

Use your knowledge to make money
you deserve to be rich, hell with everybody

So what if we have so many professionals graduate from best university
If they are insensitive to the poverty and enviromental problems in our society

We human like to blame problems on everybody around us
Even though we are part of the problems, so stop making so much fuss

A university degree without moral back up graduates a monster
who goes to the society and rub the people like a gangster

What Do You Want From Me

As you look around this room tonight
Settle in your seat and dim the lights
Do you want my blood, do you want my tears
What do you want
What do you want from me
Should I sing until I cant sing any more
Play these strings until my fingers are raw
Youre so hard to please
What do you want from me
Do you think that I know something you dont know
What do you want from me
If I dont promise you the answers would you go
What do you want from me
Should I stand out in the rain
Do you want me to make a daisy chain for you
Im not the one you need
What do you want from me
You can have anything you want
You can drift, you can dream, even walk on water
Anything you want
You can own everything you see
Sell your soul for complete control
Is that really what you need
You can lose yourself this night
See inside there is nothing to hide
Turn and face the light
What do you want from me

What Do You Want With Me

You live in a mansion, with your own private harbor
And you own an island, where you go every summer

What do you want with me, Earth, wind, water, or fire

You're been educated in the best schools all around the world
Life is simple when people hang on your every word

What do you want with me, Earth, wind, water, or fire

Your father is a leader and unknown to the world
A puppet master of billions, and your his little girl

What do you want with me, Earth, wind, water, or fire

You mother has a club in Rome where the elite come to gather
Illuminated by fine conversation, while enjoying their evening supper

What do you want with me, Earth, wind, water, or fire

Your riches can't buy everything
Your riches can't buy everything

You are a collector of unique and very precious things
And store them for safe keeping, hoping to save them

What do you want with me, Earth, wind, water, or fire
What do you want with me, Earth, wind, water, or fire

What Do You Want From Me Now

Take a little bit of everything baby
Ill be all right
Dont just settle for living the lie
That I thought you might
Put on your disguise
Let me see that youre bigger than me
Tell me that tomorrow
Ill wake and yearn for you
And when I call your name out
You leave and take a bow
You say what do want from
Call off the service now baby
No one really knew
That I would have to leave
But now Im a better man
I thought you realized
I wanted you but
You left so suddenly
I know I promised but now I lied
And when I kiss you someday
If you feel that your aloud
You say what do you want from me now
Burn all your candles
Turn out the light
Forget the feeling youve been feeling
Deep inside of me well be alright
Now its the morning after
And Im doing what you said
No one answers
So I cope cause you are gone
Oh I just wanted you baby
But I have to deal cause
My heart isnt big enough
To love you even if I please
And if I need you someday
You will not make a sound
Just think what do you want from me now

What Do Poets Want With Gold?

What do poets want with gold,
Cringing slaves and cushioned ease;
Are not crusts and garments old
Better for their souls than these?

Gold is but the juggling rod
Of a false usurping god,
Graven long ago in hell
With a sombre stony spell,
Working in the world forever.
Hate is not so strong to sever
Beating human heart from heart.
Soul from soul we shrink and part,
And no longer hail each other
With the ancient name of brother
Give the simple poet gold,
And his song will die of cold.
He must walk with men that reel
On the rugged path, and feel
Every sacred soul that is
Beating very near to his.
Simple, human, careless, free,
As God made him, he must be:
For the sweetest song of bird
Is the hidden tenor heard
In the dusk, an even-flush,
From the forest's inner hush,
Of the simple hermit thrush.

What do poets want with love?
Flowers that shiver out of hand,
And the fervid fruits that prove
Only bitter broken sand?

Poets speak of passion best,
When their dreams are undistressed,
And the sweetest songs are sung,
E'er the inner heart is stung.
Let them dream; 'tis better so;
Ever dream, but never know.
If the their spirits once have drained
All that goblet crimson-stained,
Finding what they dreamed divine,
Only earthly sluggish wine,
Sooner will the warm lips pale,
And the flawless voices fail,
Sooner come the drooping wing,
And the afterdays that bring,
No such songs as did the spring.

What Do You Want From Me

I call you every hour on the telephone
I work my fingers right down to the bone
I even got you a chihuahua so you wouldn't be alone
Got you you a trailer 'bout the size of Maine
Bought a mile of interstate in your name
I've given you everything
Baby, what do you want from me!
I burned all my porno...'cause you were PMS'n
You say it offends you...all that talking it never ends
Disconnected my X-Box and ditched all my friends
So you can go to the opera.
Dumped all my girlfriends...even the dirty ones
You think they annoy you...they wanna destroy you
I'm givin' you everything
Baby, what do you want from me!
Got you a picture you can put in a frame
Wearing a suit all check and lame
I even signed it at the bottom so you'd 'member my name
Took you to Target for your birthday meal
Got you an autographed Buns Of Steel
So what a deal!
I'm givin' you everything
Baby, what do you want from me!
I burned all my porno...'cause you were PMS'n
You say it offends you...all that talking it never ends
Disconnected my X-Box and ditched all my friends
So you can go to the opera
Dumped all my girlfriends...even the dirty ones
You say they annoy you...they wanna destroy you
I'm givin' you everything
Baby, what do you want from me!
I give you everything
Zirconium diamond rings
I gotcha LoJack for your Pontiac
And some decals on your finger nails
And a Bass Master, a Singing Trout
And a TV and a CD
And a DVD from QVC
And baby, what ya think of me!
Burned all my porno
You say it offends you
Disconnected my X-Box
Baby, what do you want from me!
What do you want from me!
What do

What Is Beautiful

What is beautiful?
Children playing together not concerned with the color of their skin
Watching a child’s creativity in playing with an imaginary friend
Every child that we see playing happily and smiling
God’s gift of a child is life’s most precious blessing
This is beautiful!

What is beautiful?
Watching our kids growing up during adolescence
Discover who they are; the need to “fit in” is present
They may find that during this time, life is quite stressful
Yet, they’re finding new friends and this feels wonderful
This is beautiful!

What is beautiful?
Teenagers that becomes so excited in going on their first date
Parents reminiscing this moment; a lost feeling that was great
Both the joy and nervousness as a teen experience a first kiss
A first kiss is an unforgettable moment; the feeling of bliss
This is beautiful!

What is beautiful?
Watching teenagers emerging into young men and women
They’re bodies are maturing; their emotions are growing
They are about to leave to begin working or go on to college
They will learn more about life and gain much knowledge
This is beautiful!

What is beautiful?
Men and women during the prime of their lives
From healthy bodies outside to wonderful spirits inside
From men’s masculinities to a women’s soft, silky skin
Their hearts are filled with love and compassion within
This is beautiful!

What is beautiful?
From the appearance across the sky from the setting sun
To a couple’s minds, souls, and hearts uniting as one
From the wonderful beauty in the wings of a white dove
To the warmth and the feeling of love and to be loved
This is beautiful!

What is beautiful?
We grow older; wrinkles are now showing on our face
Yet within, the same love shines through with every embrace
The beauty of our once young faces is still present in our hearts within
Life’s utmost beauty; loving the times spent with our families and friends
This is beautiful!

When I Get To The Root Of What I Really Want

When I get to the root of what I really want
it all comes down to the nothing that I've got.
If a mirror were to publish me the way I really look,
I'd look like a rootless tree, scattering all its leaves
and dropping its fruit like tears that got too heavy to bear.
I look at a beautiful woman now as if she were art,
a Caravaggio in a gallery, as my eyes are
just as happy to see, as my hands once were to touch.
Noli me tangere. Because I don't love anyone,
not even myself. Love is a double-edged sword
that can't dance solo, and my longing's been
a wandering troubadour for so long now, I can
mark the eras of my life by the number of windows
I've stood under singing to the waxing moon as it opens up.

I've always been a foolish dream weaver
trying to make a waterbed out of a snakepit for two
knowing how long it takes for the flying carpets to wear through.
I'm Pictish enough to live with a blue body
covered in lunar tattoos, or play the sacred clown
so I can use my absurdity as an alibi for the loss of my innocence,
and everybody's innocent at the beginning of love,
as if the moon were renewing her virginity in you.
I've lived with a lioness, two witches, an apostate madonna,
a beast mistress, one demon with juno, a couple of butterflies
that landed on the tip of the split dragon's tongue
divining for water in hell a moment or two
before their flightpaths got so erratic I couldn't keep up
and not wanting to fly wingman anymore,
tilted my wings good-bye, and banked back
into the depths and the heights of my reptilian solitude.

If things aren't perfect after you get over the shock of moonrise
believe me, the night you stop blaming
the flaws in your telescope
or the cinders in your own eyes
and realize how much dark ore it takes
for a nugget of gold to cast it
like a mountain of shadows behind it,
you'd make a much better astronomer than you are now.
You'd be able to relate to the asteroids
as easily as you do the radiant rings and shepherd moons
with their alluring promise of a mysterious life
just under the eyelids of their ice-caps,
as you peer through the cracks in their cataracts.

My heart's been savaged by firestorms of stars
sweeping across deserts of volcanic ash and pumice
by thousands of delusions arming themselves like mirages
to wound the very water they depended for their lives upon
because they didn't think there were enough bubbles in the hourglass.
You wake up one morning and find the skull of the moon
polluting your wishing well, it's time to pack up
and take your lute on the road again like uprooted rain.
Try for a graceful exit but if it's a little more brutal
than your entrance, do the best you can one abyss at a time
so that when you're on your death bed reviewing all this,
you won't have to wince too hard
at all your futile attempts to remain indefensibly human.

A Bleak Black Picture

Swat teams that come in and swat like flies
Are being used to terrorize.
They look like the Nazis that everyone feared
And are under the impression they should be revered.
Dressed in black with shielded faces,
They use their clubs and disperse their maces.
Set up by law enforcement to enforce the law
Against our own citizens with "shock and awe".

What are we teaching our kids of today?
That this kind of action is justifiably okay?
It's not and it's wrong.
It demonstrates that we're weak,
And not at all strong.
In a free society this does not belong.
What have we become? I can't believe my eyes.
The swat teams are fearsome and we are the flies.

Teachers Challenge

It's time for the public to open up their eyes
Without the teachers how will our kids survive
What will happen to our children if they
don't have an education
They are the foundation of this great nation.

The teachers all had a dream and a goal
To teach the public young and old.
They had learned early in college
That they must gain daily knowledge.

Every day they challenge their minds
With new knowledge that they find
It does not matter what the topic may be
It all goes down into history.

They work hard at what they do
Teaching our kids and their kids too.
Teaching is not an easy task
not all kids learn that fast.

Then there are those with special needs
With which the teachers plant their seeds.
They are given a lot more patience
And a lot more care, so with them
The teachers do share.

Now is the time that money should be given
So that they can earn a decent living.

We're moms of
Wars, libido voracity
Of horny ‘society' too. [1]


Salacious raunchy
Soldiers iconoclasts
Soldered penetrated us
In forceful way into…! [2]


Millions are rearing
Kids with all love
Millions are on
The queue. [3]


Our children
Will be known in
Moms' identity. [4]


We want
Our kids
Be not
Rapist
Or rape victim. [5]


We victims
Why 'only' solicit
Clichéd consolation
In slut walk? [6]


Sure we're
Our sons
Will by-default be
Male slut walker
For a paradigm shift! [7]


To symbolically
Absolve penance
Of: XY. [8]


This slut walk
Will tumefy in
Slut march
Swell into
Antarctic glacier
Finally inundate
Deluge whole world
To assuage menace. [9]


Path of victory
Is time tested
Gandhian avant-garde
Protest thro'
Non Violence! ! [10]


We're proud
Moms of kids
By Default Rape! ! ! [11]


Oy civilized society
Can you hear us? [12]
