Toni Morrison

Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another.

One Thing

(gary rossington, johnnyvan-zant, ed king, dale krantz-rossington, custer)
I met the man, when I was fifteen
Seen him in all the papers, on t.v. and magazines
So I had to ask him, whats the difference between
Those who make a wish, those who spin wheels
And those who ride in white limosines like you,mister
Wont you tell me one thing
Some have the passion and they control the ride
Some settle for whatever happens
As years pass they see their lives just slip on by
The world keeps a turnin
Itll leave you behind
Nothin else matters, nothins worth learnin
Until the dream you have inside
(chorus)
Its the one thing, the one thing theres no denyin
So find yourself a dream and some piece of mind
cause money and power wont buy it
Its the one thing, nothin else matters
And somewhere you might have heard the good times are through
And good luck is somethin youre born with
I know it just aint true
The world keeps a turnin
I wouldnt tell you no lie
Nothin else matters, nothins worth learnin
Until the dream that you have inside
(repeat chorus)
Nothin else matters

The Poem Started To Be One Thing

The Poem started to be one thing
And became another -
It lost its way
And became mixed up-
To save it was to divide into two or three
But this was to lose it also-
Perhaps the mixed- up poem is the true poem
And the poem pure in one theme is only an abstraction no one needs -

The poem whose subject is its own writing
Is a minor poem
And one of lesser feeling-
I write this poem now as if I know
Even within myself
There are better, if less or more pure poems elsewhere

Life Demands One Thing

The brain will not cease.
Agitation explores
the hypocrisy of paths.
My myths burned, I spinned and tipped
over the inverted truths.
Again I skip the swamps.
Body becomes a frozen lake.

Take off the mask now, tree is flowering
solitary shade is beginning to enlarge.
It is arrival time.
For you it is difficult geometry.
The stolen dreams collapse at your door.
Exhausted, you are grateful to defeatism.

The moth eaten rags cover the polarities of words.
Faceless fear is ready to strike.
Your eyes are filled
with civilized tears.
The weaning from wings was difficult.
Life demanded one thing,
death another.

ONE THING...by Talile Ali

I THOUGHT I WAS IN LOVE
WITH A FRIEND OF MINE
SHE HAS SO MANY QUALITIES
THAT I THOUGHT WERE FINE

BUT THERE WAS JUST THIS ONE THING
I COULD NOT COMPREHEND
HOW SHE'D FALL IN THE ARMS
OF THE STUPIDEST OF MEN

I KID YOU NOT, BUDDY
SOME REAL DUNCES, THAT'S A FACT
TREAT HER JUST LIKE REAL DIRT
SHE KEEP'S COMING BACK

I HAD THOUGHT 'SHE AIN'T NO DUMMY'
THAT'S WHY THIS STUFF'S INSANE
SHE EVEN FEEDS THE SNAG-A-TOOTH HALF-WIT
AND POT AND BOOZE FOR HIS WANG

DOESN'T REALLY MATTER
SO LONG AS THEY ARE DUMB?
WITNESSING THIS NIGHTMARE
ONLY HAS ME GOING NUMB

I PRAY ONE THAT ONE DAY
SHE SEE'S HOW SHE'S BEEN WELL PLAYED
HOW SHE'S BEEN SO UNDONE
IN THIS QUEST FOR BEING LAID

PLEASE,
LITTLE BROTHERS,
I CAN SEE,
THAT MY POINT HAS BEEN MADE

The One Thing

With all the grace that you possess
Youre telling me your lies
A kiss, a touch, a gentle stroke, a look into my eyes
Your promises and fairytales have all turned into dust
Your star was high, your kingdom grew in vain
Now fades at last
That is the one thing I know
Stop talking
Stop talking with that voice
I cant stand it
When I look into your eyes
Who do you think you are
Youre too perfect
But this time youve gone too far
How can you be so sure about those tears youre giving me
Your mysteries and agonies show no effect on me
I cant believe the love we shared would ever grow so old
Your warm embrace was heaven
But tonite it feels so cold
That is the one thing I know...
Stop talking...
I cant stand it
I cant stand it
No more
Gold/1993

If It Ain't One Thing

(alan jackson/jim mcbride)
I guess it's just not my day
The wind blew my morning paper away
Then i cut my toe oin a sliver of glass
From the stormdoor you broke when you left here so fast
If it ain't one thing it's you
If you've heard that i'm goin crazy
It's true
The wheels seem to fall off whatever i do
If it ain't one thing
It's you
I rented that movie you hate
But that old vcr just chewed up the tape
Then i went to the freezer thought i'd cook me a steak
All i found was that old piece of our wedding cake
If it ain't one thing it's you
If you've heard that i'm goin crazy
It's true
The wheels seem to fall off whatever i do
If it ain't one thing
It's you
But i never knew that i needed you so
But now that i've lost you, i can't let you go
If it ain't one thing it's you
If you've heard that i'm goin crazy
It's true
The wheels seem to fall off whatever i do
If it ain't one thing
It's you
Oh if it ain't one thing
It's you

It Could Only Mean One Thing

My mission is to excite.
Not to bore as if that was my expertise.
Reaching to innovate and create new approaches,
To observations is what I seek to do.

That one could addendum what has been done,
For some is a preference.
And is a preference someone else dictates,
Really a 'preference' one independently makes?
Or is it just easier to accept to later throw away?

My mission is to excite.
Not to bore as if that was my expertise.
Reaching to innovate and create new approaches,
To observations is what I seek to do.

And if it seems I intentionally attempt to attract attention...
Well...
I'll put it this way,
If one is doing what one wishes to do...
And if this should attract attention?
It could only mean one thing.
Some find it difficult to do what it is they choose,
Without getting approval or feeling accepted.

And...
Well,
A seeking of acceptance hasn't done a thing to improve...
The quality of life that has been devalued as 'approved'.

If It Aint One Thing Its Another

(bobby carmichael/ tony stampley/joe stampley)
I got up this morning tried to get off of work
I couldnt even find not one clean shirt
There was no hot water when I jumped in the shower
I know my boss is gonna dock me an hour
The older I get the more I discover
If it aint one thing its another
I got the car, I tried to get motivated
Now Im stuck in the traffic, all Im doing is waiting
The fool behind me keeps blowin his horn
I got my top laid back and its coming up a storm
The older I get the more I discover
If it aint one thing its another
Light bill phone bill water and gas
Pay day comes and it goes so fast
Theres no way out and Im telling you brother
If it aint one thing its another
I got to the job and I tried to explain
The boss said you wont have to do that again
I called home just to tell her the news
She said bye bye baby Im leaving you
She took the kids and shes gone to her mothers
If it aint one thing, its another
Light bill phone bill water and gas
Pay day comes and it goes so fast
Theres no way out and Im telling you brother
If it aint one thing its another
If it aint one thing its another

In the spirit of Rumi - 50 - One Thing

Oh the pleasure, the happiness,
the delight, the joy, the bliss,
of doing just one thing above all!

When I was a child, I did many things;
that’s right for children – there’s the world,
go play in it; ask, what’s a horizon? but what
lies beyond? and why can’t I see angels
if angels can see me? …

When I was a young man, I did many things;
that’s right for young men – which one will I love?
which one will love me? And when we’ve together found our love,
oh what then? and oh what then?

But now I’m older, there seems less time
for many things; they will look after themselves
without my help… so, what delight
to give oneself to just one thing
one thing at a time; and then
one thing

and it seems, it doesn’t matter what;
roses need an expert to collaborate
in dreaming up new beauty from an older stock;
dogs need exercise, and a two-legs to look up to;
grandchildren are born to love grandparents
in a special way..

and, duties done, and hearts served well,
one thing…it might be poetry,
in which to say, look, all this
I’ve received: here’s recognition,
acknowledgement, and gratitude…

and the other things, like sleeping, eating,
become day by day like living in someone else’s poem;
someone else committed to one thing

and then one day, perhaps,
life’s curtain twitches; and some great being
looks in the window, the very moment you look out;
and ‘one thing’, in the most natural way,
becomes…

The One Thing

(a farriss & m hutchence)
Well you know just what you do to me
The way you move soft and slippery
Cut the night just like a razor
Rarely talk and thats the danger
Its the one thing
You are my thing
You know your voice is a love song
Its a catcall from the past
Theres no ice in your lovers walk
You dont look twice cause you move so fast
Youve got a dozen men behind you
Youve got dead flowers on the floor
Youre too pretty in the daylight
It keeps them coming back for more

This can only be one thing..............

Can you believe it?
I'd never understand
Why you'd take my heart
An I'd take your hand

This can only be one thing

I never thought i'd reach you
You answer all my prayers
What we've got is heaven
You've cleared all my cares

This can only be one thing

Words will never tell you
What you've given me
How you make me feel
And what you let me be

This can only be one thing

I'm gonna grow old with you
We'll be together at the end
An all the way through
This is not pretend

This can only be one thing.
Love

just One Thing

just,
one,
thing,

start with being just
i know what fair is,
sportsmanship,
give me
what is due me
think of me
when i am sad
drink with me
when i am
happy,
be just to me

one, i am one,
and will always be
one with myself,
one with nature,
one with you
just me, this one
nothing less
nothing more,

and for one more thing,
you like flowers
and call them things
their scents, their colors
the way they touch
you on a certain
closeness


and just one thing more,
do not forget

i am still here
writing for you.

One Thing That I Miss

one thing that i miss
is not found in you,
it is something, yet it is
illusive, like a an eclipse
in seconds
i dim the world
only to disappear and give
you back
your own light
but you will miss what i miss
and i come back only
once every thousand years
of your life
sort of
you do not find me and i do not
really find you
we meet and we miss again
like parallel lines
always going seeing and talking
and in the silence of it all
always unflinching

two lines that never
meet


this is the price that we pay
for our
sacred hypocrisy.

One Thing Leads To Another

How many times have we
thought of one thing that led us to another
within our memory store.
We think of one thing
and our memory links us to another
that may have happened years before.
We sit for a few minutes
as our memory takes us on a trip
through the corridors
of our childhood many years before.
We remember moments
that delighted us at the time
before growing up
took those pleasures away.
Each memory hold a precious moment
we will never see again
except in our memories
when they will take us
down that road again.

One Thing

Restless tonight
Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line
Its nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line
*Chorus*
If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldnt that be something
I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time
*Bridge*
Even though I know
I dont want to know
Yeah I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds
Repeat Chorus Twice
Repeat Bridge Twice
Repeat Chorus until fade.

The One Thing About Knowing

The one thing about knowing,
Is its ability not to be undone.
Once something is known,
An acknowledgement of it...
To others become easily shown.

And that knowledge shown,
May come to show others despising it.
Depending on who sees what one has,
As a lasting benefit.
Since those who are not afraid of knowledge,
Feel freer to leave behind their ignorance.

The one thing about knowing,
Whether or not it is documented...
Is its ability not to be undone.
Once something is known,
An acknowledgement of it...
To others become easily shown.
And few are found to run away,
From its presence or existence.

One Thing

When I try to tell you one thing
You dont listen
When I try to tell you one thing
You dont care.
I think were headed for a heartache
Thats my suspicion
I think were headed for a heartache
Thats how I feel.
And I dont want
The silent treatment
And I dont need
To feel the chill.
You know a body feels empty
With no love inside
Yeah, a body feels empty
With no love at all.
I think were headed for a heartache
Thats my suspicion
I think were headed for a heartache
Thats how I feel.
One of these days
Youre gonna wake up and Ill be gone
Youll open your eyes
And see the truth.
When I try to tell you one thing
You dont listen
When I try to tell you one thing baby
You dont care.
