From My Window I See The Jackfruit Tree

in this tropical place
from my window
i see a jack fruit tree
in abundance
showing its fruits
all around its
body.

This I Feel, Breathe and See

Who is there unaware and in doubt,
That I live to be attached to You?
Have I been excluded to delude on my path?
Am I not as valid as a blade of grass?

In lilting winds I cling.
Like a leaf that buds to grow,
To then become old to wither from a tree.
Proceeding successfully from one stage to the next.
I need no proof to show this.
I am exposed therefore I need not ask.
Or become perplexed by Your given tasks!

This I feel, breathe and see!

Who is there unaware and in doubt,
Every thought I have carried about...
Generates from and connects to You.
Every movement on this planet,
Has been created by You and approved.

Those shallow in darkness,
With perceptions they exist to live apart...
Would not experience the radiance of light.
Nor would sleep peacefully at night with quiet hearts,
If not for You to soothe them in slumber.

And those who sustain,
A choice to wallow away in fear and pain...
Accept their sufferings in separate agonies.
As if in aloneness,
They stay to appreciate their self inflicted grief.
With a straining to remain...
In a hopelessness that's gained.

Who is there unaware and in doubt,
That I live to be attached to You?

In lilting winds I cling.
Like a leaf that buds to grow,
To then become old to wither from a tree.
Proceeding successfully from one stage to the next.
I need no proof to show this.
I am exposed therefore I need not ask.
Or become perplexed by Your given tasks!

This I feel, breathe and see!
Within a never ending eternity,
Too massive for me to conceive.
As I gratefully continue,
On my blessed and treasured journey.
Acknowledging as I witness...
This experience is not all about me,
To profile or prejudge!

Name this bird

Name this bird
If you are.

If you wish
Go there.

Geography
I do not like.
History
This bird
is not feathery.

See the word
Search the bird.

The bird I saw
Above the rulrs
Above the law.

If you wish
Go and tell
But please
Do not say
The bird is in sleep
And not here to clip.

This heart beats

This heart beats,
only cause of you

This heart beats,
just to know its true

This heart beats,
like a love i cant control

This heart beats,
to let everybody know

This heart beats,
when i see your smile

This heart beats,
just before i dial

This heart beats,
i hope you feel the same

This heart beats,
cause my heart is where i write your name

This is love

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First, to let go of live.
In the end, to take a step without feet;
to regard this world as invisible,
and to disregard what appears to be the self.

Heart, I said, what a gift it has been
to enter this circle of lovers,
to see beyond seeing itself,
to reach and feel within the breast.

Take this House of Glory,

Take this House of Glory,
Take this House of Glory,
That I may earn that Living Beauty,
In my Image,
It is all Clear,
That the Mind is with that great UNDERSTANDING,

Take this Shelter and see the House of Hopes,
From within me,
Iam not failing anymore,
Since with that Great Timing,
I take this House that I may see that Living Beauty,
There is no Regard for Wrong Doers anymore,
See that the Change is all Better than Worst.

At This Hour Of Separation

at this hour of our parting
i hold your hand to feel its last warmth
you do not look at me
to my glances
you have chosen an evasion

you wore your dark glasses
you enter a certain darkness
where you think
i cannot see your eyes with tears

clouds drift at your face
you go
finding your place inside the
predeparture area
i wave my hand and left you

you are gone
the plane slices the clear skies
i know
from up there
i am but an ant below the haze
distance does
the inevitable forgetting

In this world of today

In this world of today
Youths fight
Adults shout
Children run and lie about

In this world of today
Kids are dying
Men are fighting
But we don't hear them crying

In this world of today
News reports talk s***
But what if they lived it
Maybe they would see

In this world of today
They lie to our face
They say its ok but we know it's a race
But what if we all took it at a steady pace

In this world today
We don't know what to say
But we keep up the fight
Protest with riots cause we want all our rights

Is This You?

I hate the way I look
I hate the way I feel
I hate the way I know
That my hate is real

I hate the way some people
Seem to get all the breaks
I hate the way I don't have
What it seems to take

I hate the way some people
Never seem to lose
I hate the way it seems
I never get to choose

I hate the way some people
Think they know it all
I hate the way those people
Never seem to fall

I hate so much in this life
Sometimes I cannot see
Because I am so filled with hate
I sometimes even hate me

Something They Must See

outside the rain begins
and you think
that this may never end

you stare
beyond this window
your cheeks are wet with tears

you undress
and take away every covering of your body

it is dark anyway
and this time no one shall see
what you shall do

you step out of the door
and walk straight to the yard
feeling the grass
on your feet

feeling the rain flowing in your hair
on the sides of your ears
and cheeks

you cry some more
you shout with a wish that your anger
may reach the heavens

you run towards a thick forest
and then dissolve inside this darkness

See You Again

Ohhhh!
I like your style
I love your smile baby
Taken my durability
Taken the ability
To push this in the right direction
See you again
Baby
And I hope that I can see you again
I dont wanna know that I can count her out
Youre too scared to talk about
The things you wanna say so privately
All your secrecy
So come a little closer
Girl I want to know
Whats in your heart
Whats in your soul
My bodys poisoned
Bodys sayin
That youll lead me there
Sunlight at the dance floor
Diamonds fancy resturant
I know that it aint all it seems
Hold on!
Before you judge me
Come on!
Just try and love me
Youll see!
That Im the man in your
Dreams!
See you again

I Cant See Texas From Here

I come and go as I please
From down here, up north and in between
But baby its a shame, cause I always feel the same
When I cant see texas from here
I cant see texas from here
No matter how I try, it makes me wanna die
So if you see me looking down, Im trying not to show this frown
cause I cant see texas from here
I cant say I dont like tennessee
The people here have all been good to me
So please dont take offense if I start to gettinõ tense
Its just cause I cant see texas from here
I cant see texas from here
No matter how I try, it makes me wanna die
So if you see me looking down, Im trying not to show this frown
cause I cant see texas from here

Sad to see him go

Its sad to see him go,
Go away to nothingness,
He made me feel pity for me,
Myself pity,
Pity that I should not feel for him,
He made me so mad that I should not feel sorry for him,
He comes and goes as he pleases in my life,
He made me feel as if I did not exist to him,
He should feel sorry for me cause I went through a lot ever since he left me with this broken heart,
Sad to see him go,
Its my fault that I didn’t try hard enough to be there for him yet he was never there for me in began with,
I have the rights to be anger with him,
He made me feel like I was losing my mind,
Sad to say that I do declare I have somewhat feel pity for him,
Yet so sad to see him go.

Tropical Depression

I thought some time in the sun
Would help me get over you
But I could tell from day one
This is a place meant for two
Now here I sit on the beach
Watching the tide ebb and flow
I booked my room for a week
But now Im ready to go
Im in a tropical depression
Ive got the blue water blues
Cant shake this loving you obsession
Cant stand this sand in my shoes
This forgetting you vacation
Is just a fools holiday
If I cant get over you
This tropical depressions gonna
Blow me away
This should be paradise
Heaven down by the sea without you here by my side
It feels like hell to me
Chorus
If I cant get over you
This tropical depressions gonna
Blow me away
If I cant get over you
This tropical depressions gonna
Blow me away

Long to See Home

I sit here and listen
to each story told
and hear of tropical island breeze
that make the palm trees
sway in its wake
and white beachs glemming
Where the waves
lap against its shores
I long to see
were I can place my hand
and run sand in my hand
seeing the deep blue lagoons
that hide the oceans life
Taste the fruits
that are abundance galore
to see the colours of rainbows
of flowers that spread
across its shores
I sit and sigh
and think will I see
those wonderful sites
Will I see the beauty
of the home were
my parents use to roam
as children of old
and hear the legends
being told by the camp fire site
Will I ever get to see
the moon shine its light
by the beautiful shores
of my parents home
Will I ever see their home
I sigh with a dreamy eye
thinking one day I just might

Burn this note into pieces...

I write this piece of note, feel so good
And the lights are off, oh why so dark?
So dark and they don’t see me crying
This is a piece of note for my friends
To let them know and to let them feel

And this is a piece of message in tears
And I sit down here in this dark space
I don’t see any stars, I don’t see any…
This is life and I believe in fairy tales
This is my life and I was in a fairy tale

Lights are off and I sit here in this room
Let me tell you a story and you say,
Why don’t you say if you like it?
This is about a man who left his place
This is about a man who lived in dreams

And when he returned back and saw,
Million stars in a crowded street, so clear
Tears fall dropp by dropp and I sit here,
Lost stars in this lonely street and I,
Tears fall dropp by dropp as I see no one

I don’t see them clear and I write this note…
And I sit here in this dark room… oh so dark…

Ive Been All Around This World

Up on the blue ridge mountains, there Ill take my stand.
Up on the blue ridge mountains, there Ill take my stand.
A rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand;
Oh lord, I been all around this world.
Lulu, my lulu come and open the door.
Lulu, my lulu come and open the door.
Before I have to walk in with my old forty-four.
Oh lord, I been all around this world.
Mama and papa, little sister makes three.
Mama and papa, little sister makes three.
Theyre comin in the mornin; thats the last youll see of me.
Oh lord, I been all around this world.
Hang me, oh, hang me, so Ill be dead and gone.
Hang me, oh, hang me, so Ill be dead and gone.
I wouldnt mind your hangin, boys but you wait in jail so long.
Oh lord, I been all around this world.
Up on the blue ridge mountains, there Ill take my stand.
Up on the blue ridge mountains, there Ill take my stand.
A rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand;
Oh lord, I been all around this world.

The Golden Fields Of Rice

soon it will be harvest time
and you will see the women all wrapped in their sarong
their heads covered against the sun
bowing before these golden ricefields harvesting the
produce of their plowing and sowing men

soon it will be another happy hour
of drinking and singing and merry making
some debts will be paid off
the children shall remain in school
delicious dinners shall be served on the table
and happy conversations shall be in place
in the backyards of these working people

soon the fields will be empty again
some dried stalks will be left
some grains remain unpicked
by then it will be summer and the sun
will be so scorching

there will be changes going between the sowing and the harvesting
my faith shall keep staying amidst the cycles of the sun and the rain
the wet and the dry seasons of this tropical place
the mudding and the cracking of the paths

i will always keep going
to walk on like i am bound for a certain destination

On A Clear Day, I Can See Forever

On a clear day, I can see forever-
But forever is ne'er more near
Than when I think of you and I together,
As we would be, if I lived in a world sans fear;
In those days, I was only able to see 'tomorrow',
Naught more, and thought I knew not what love meant;
Now, I look back at my naivete with the sorrow
That a broken heart gifts, wondering where my love went!
Oh, to do it all over again-sikerly I would-
But I cannot, so thoughts as this, do no good.
We may, however, be so blessed if we begin anew-
And shall, if you love me as I love you!

Ah, but to see forever, where today is merely its start,
Would inspire my soul and surely embolden this heart,
Which now knows not fear, only its betterment,
And casts aside any form of fret as just another impediment
That keeps my heart in darkness, where it craves light-
My soul from its inspiration, and my mind, from fanciful flight!

On a clear day, we may see forever,
Though not with our eyes, and only together!

What You See Is What You Get

Man:
Aint no hidden treasure
In this pot of gold you see
Aint no way for you to make
No silky purse out of me
Woman:
Well Im never ever gonna change your way
I dig you as you are
And youve got something that I want
And thats worth waiting for
Chorus (together):
What you see is what you get
And you aint seen nothing yet
What you see is what you get
And you aint seen nothing yet
Man:
I told you that I loved you
Right from the very start
Now dont you make me sorry girl
That I opened up my heart
Woman:
Well I know that Im no angel
This aint my first time out
But you can count on what I got
Cause what I gots a lot dont you know
Chorus (together)
Man (spoken):
Woman:
When its cold I want it hot
Ive always wanted what is not
But when it comes to loving you
Im yours no matter what you do
Man:
Oh youre my baby, and Im your man
This is mother natures plan
Woman:
Cant you see, its a fact
Loving you is where its at
What you see is what you get
And you aint seen nothing yet
(repeats)

You Dont Have To See

Verse1:
Spare me advise for a change
Just let me go my own way
I am the one in this thing
I know youre looking out
Checking me for last minute doubt
He makes me happy
When will you take my word
Chorus:
You dont have to want this to work
Its my life and a love deserved
Tearing him down, yeah its a sin
But you dont have to see
What I see in him
Verse2:
There is respect all around
Miracles in what we found
Surely you can understand
And when I come home to him
It just confirms again and again
That I dont have to explain
But to say that hes my man
Chorus:
And you dont have to want this to work
Its my life, its a love deserved
Tearing him down, yeah its a sin
But you dont have to see
What I see in him
Bridge:
Yes it would please me
If youd make it easy
And open up your mind
Chorus:
But you dont have to want this to work
Its my life and a love deserved
Tearing him down, yeah its a sin
But you dont have to see
What I see in him
You dont have to see
What I see in him
But you dont have to see
What I see in him
