There Are Many Roads To Take

at this point in my life
there are always many roads to take
the options are limitless
the roads looking like hairs
and fibers and swirling octopuses
so confusing
so tempting to take those
that make me happy

but i have decided
to take this rougher road
with you, my love

i have taken your hand
i have given my word

that is the difference

I Pray This Comes to You

I pray this comes to you,
With a warmness in your heart...
For me that has started.

I pray this comes to you,
Wanting me.
And wishing we,
Were near...
Free to love, give and take.

I pray this comes to you,
Forgiving what I've done...
That has caused you heartache.

I pray this comes to you,
Forgiving me.
And we...
Both have grown to be,
Together.
Forever.

Yes we...
Both have grown to be,
Loved.

I pray this comes to you,
With a warmness in your heart...
For me that has started.

I pray this comes to you,
Knowing both of us have made mistakes.
And we...
Both have grown to be,
Together.
Free to love, give and take.

Yes we...
Both have grown to be,
Loved.

Political Commentary

Someone...
And/or 'all' of those,
Not affiliated with any of our parties...
Has been dropping truths all over the place.
This situation has produced erectile dysfunctions,
And may I say...
Only 'that' to us is an injustice.
That to us is the ultimate disgrace!

Does anyone at this meeting,
Realize the severity of this unfortunate dilemma?
There is a massive attack on our principles.
A devastation revealed to every misdeed begun!

The people express regret.
And our pockets have left them dire.
We must inspire them with a fresh marketing campaign.
To quiet the bluster of this truth hustler!
Who expresses a compassion...
That traps and exposes us to be great liars!

The Voices of Change are amongst us now!
And our gains to them they want explained.
But who here wishes to pursue that route?
'Who' here can revamp those of minds,
We envisioned to leave deranged?

'Who' here can explain to them,
We are not the ones insane?
It is 'them' and 'those'...
Haven't we done enough...
To prove Hussein was the brain,
Behind our contempt?
To plunder and pillage with intent.
And didn't we send great forces...
To seduce more endorsements?
To feed our need to greed.

This picture is becoming,
More vivid and multi-colored!
At least from a Baron's point of view!
Where few of true nobility sit!

And may I re-state for anyone misunderstanding...
Or left suspended in a time that does not relate.
A time that no longer exists.

This picture is becoming,
More vivid and multi-colored!
At least from a Baron's point of view!
Where few of true nobility sit!
And their priorities are not about us to lift!
These are RULERS.
Not 'propagandites' who insight fear!
Their selections for choice,
Are far away from these shores we endear.

Only one of us is brighter than the rest.
Barack Obama is his name!
The rest of us can forget it.
Our divisions and infighting...
Has disgraced us into a debt,
That surmounts
And surrounds in international shame!
And all eyes are on us directing their blame!

The Voices of Change are amongst us now!
And our gains to them they want explained.
But who here wishes to pursue that route?
'Who' here can revamp?
'Who' here can explain to them we are not insane?
Only one of us is brighter than the rest.
Barack Obama is his name!
The rest of us can forget it.
Our divisions and infighting...
Has disgraced us into a debt,
That surmounts
And surrounds in international shame!
And all eyes are on us directing their blame!

All eyes are on Barack Obama now.
Hoping he and his assistants can regain,
From a defaming some in their ignorance...
Desire maintained!
But 'who' else amongst you sleepers think...
Will protect what is left that is still claimed?
The road to Oz has closed!

Listen To The Sunset

Listen to the sunset,
Hear its silent sigh
As it falls down the horisen
Warning, the moon is nigh

Listen to the sunset
Hear its silent threat
That darkness will be upon us
It makes everyone upset

Listen to the sunset
The vanity of its words
How beautiful this sunset is
With its colour, and birds

Listen to the sunset
See its pretty hue
But I cant enjoy the sunset
If I am not with you

All the pretty colours are meaningless
So are the birds, and the sounds
Because it all means nothing to me
If you are not around

Just remember this though,
Promise you wont forget,
Even if your far away,
We'll be watching the same sunset

So listen to the sunset
Enjoy its beauty true
When you see it, think of me
And I will think of you

Thinking This Thought of You

I'm thinking this thought of you
its the light that shines through my blinds
I must have lost track of them longing times
I was watching words
on my lonley night
my lonleyness has brought you to mind.

Chasing to be dating, replacing you why?
You know I'll never be true once I begin to lie
im thinking this thought of you
you know I'm watching words as they slowly die
on my lonley fight
my loneliness has brought you to sight.

I'm thinking this thought of you
through circle stained glass I see just a rose
because behind me
the emtyness shows through the door that you always close
on my lonley night
my lonleyness is oh so hard for me to find.

This Is What You Wanted

Death is hard to understand,
Cause you have to be,
Dead to understand it.

Just like my uncle,
I am dead.
I'm with him now.

I can finally breath,
I can finally run,
I am finally free.

You should be,
Happy too,
Cause you don't have me.

Just like you wished for,
I'm dead,
And gone forever.

You don't even cry,
Or come to my,
Funeral.

You don't look happy,
You look bad,
You look sad.

You've got another girl,
All the money in the wordl,
And too many cars.

You said you loved me,
But you always hurt me,
And never said sorry.

I'm happy,
You aren't,
But you should be happy,
ANd I should be sad.
Cause this is what,
You always wanted...

Religion (This is what You have Done)

Relogion O religion!
This is what you have done
From chaos we were brought
Into a world with love.
We are the Christians
With Christ we entered Jerusalem triumphantly.
O Jesus, mighty saviour, truely you are Christ!
After death you rise
It's my my pride you're on my side.
We are the Christians
Of a thousand century
With Christ we rise
With love we followed Jesus
And together we made the Church.

Religion O religion
This is what you have done
From Chaos we were made, into a world with love.

Praise be to Allah
Who oversees all
And we are the Moslems
Wih Mohammed we followed
And entered Mecca triumphantly
And together we made the Mosque.
There is no God but Allah
To Him there shall be all praise.
And to Mohammed His prophet
Showed me the way to Allah
In the Heavenly.

This Gift You Have Given Me

Aaaaah
Mama...my first words
Dada threw me in the air
I trusted he'll catch me
And he did
But Papa...I've never met him
Never seen him, never known him
He used bare hands to form my porcelain skin
And ingenuity to craft my genius mind
The breathed in me for so long
Then dropped precious stones in me
To help beautify the ailing earth
He hugged me and prayed I'd remember him
I didn't...Papa...
He wrote a big book of letters I found boring
But used as a bed time story
And learned that Papa's this mighty guy
Papa...
Heard he loves me crazy, unconditionally
And wants me to love others the same
But the world knows not love that's pure and bursts
But I don't know how to...love
I long for him, I leave him alone a lot
But the yearning cannot be feigned
Papa...
The best things in life are free
People say free things have no value
But your life, your sanity
Your children, your family
Your health, your mind,
Your peace, your joy
Your love, Papa's love
Compare with the things we put value on:
My flat screen, my Range
My ipad, my Gucci.
My jewelry, my clothing
My degree, my duplex.
Now you, I, we are more beautiful
Than the most perfect rose or
Most beautiful egoistic peacock
He dropped many treasures in me
I've danced, I've sang, I've led
And now I'm writing to you
This gift I've been given...
This gift we've been given...
Let's change the world...
By first finding Papa.

And live a better life to achieve your aims always.

None Of This Is As You Believe

It may be free.
And from your perception,
Even simple.
But none of this is as you believe.

There is a quality that deepens,
Each time you take to reach.
Each time there is a grasp of it,
You think is yours to keep...
Changes comes to stir,
What you had considered...
Already once occured.

It may be free.
And from your perception,
Even simple.
But none of this is as you believe.
Since you may find your comfort,
Surfing on the surface.
And much further below...
Is where this 'thing' breathes!
With a breeding that goes on undetected.

this POEM assures YOU that....

this POEM is not
a product of a philosophical quibbling
not a part of guidance
and counseling like what sometimes
nagging mothers do
not a scolding like what fathers do
to their sons who are feeling lost
and unwanted
this poem shall not ask you to confess
your sins
like what religions do
calling for this and that
for absolution and deliverance
or purification
neither will this poem be a doctor
giving you the cure
for whatever sickness you have
this poem when you read it
till the last simply assures you
that you are not alone

when you read even if you do not try to understand
there is this comfort
that in our loneliness we are never alone

This Is What You Chose and Wanted

Where are those,
Pure of heart.
Loving of justice.
Courageous and brave.
Upright and wholesome.
Devoted, loyal and honest.
Caring and sharing of good deeds.
Where are these people?
What has happened to them,
And their influences missed?
Where do they hide?
Do they still exist?

'Of course they 'still' exist.
They are the ones you got rid of!
Don't you remember this?

They are the ones who attempted to prevent...
Your current agonies.
With the rise of misfits.

And the more outspoken,
Those with opened eyes became...
You became more belligerent.
You became more incensed.
With character assassinations!
And reputations you defamed.

Don't you remember this?

Now you wish a way of life,
Away from the one you have...
That had made no sense.
With greed and corruption...
Welcomed on your path!

And this is what you chose and wanted.
If you didn't...
Why did you insist on it?
Is it because you now feel trapped?

And those you dismissed,
Appear to be happier...
Than 'that' happiness,
You believed you HAD! '

This Ones For You

This one will never sell,
Theyll never understand,
I dont even sing it well,
I try, but I just cant.
But I sing it every night,
And I fight to keep it in,
cause this ones for you,
This ones for you.
Ive done a hundred songs,
From fantasies to lies,
But this ones so real for me
That Im the one who cries.
But I sing it every night,
And I fight to hide the tears,
Cause this ones for you,
This ones for you.
This ones for you wherever you are,
To say that nothings been the same
Since weve been apart.
This ones for all the love we once knew
Like this ones for you, oh.
This ones to say that all I can do
Is hope that you will hea r me sing
Cause this ones for you oh
This ones for you wherever I go,
To say that nothings been the same
Since weve been apart.
This ones for all the love we once knew
Like everything else I have,
This ones for you oh
Ive got it all,
It seems, for all it means to me,
But I sing of things I miss
And things that used to be.
And I wonder everynight
If you might just miss me too,
And I sing for you I sing for you.

This I Promise You

When the visions around you,
Bring tears to your eyes.
And all that surrounds you,
Are secrets and lies.
I'll be your strength
I'll give you hope,
Keeping your faith when it's gone.
The one you should call,
Was standing here all alone.
CHORUS
And I will take you in my arms,
And hold you right were you belong.
'Til the day my life is through...
This I promise you...
This I promise you...
I've loved you forever,
In lifetimes before.
And I promise you never...
Will you hurt anymore.
I give you my word,
I give you my heart.
This is a battle we've won.
And with this vow,
Forever has now begun...
Just close your eyes,
Each lovin' day.
And know this feeling won't go away.
'Til the day my life is through...
This I promise you...
Over and over I fall...
When I hear you call...
Without you in my life, baby.
I just wouldn't be living at all...
CHORUS
And I will take you in my arms,
And hold you right were you belong.
'Til the day my life is through...
This I promise you, baby.
Just close your eyes,
Each lovin' day.
And know this feeling won't go away.
Every word I say is true...
This I promise you...
I promise you...

Happy Birthday Jesus (I'll Open This One For You)

(I'll Open This One For You)
(Arranged by Reba McEntire)
Now kids hang on just a second before we start
You know there's a reason we are all here in front of Grandma and
Grandpa's
Christmas tree
And if Trevor and E.P. would quit fighting long enough and be real
quiet
This little song might help ya understand
Long ago in a stable there was a baby being born
His parents were Joseph and Mary
And Joseph's big ole heart was torn
Cause he couldn't find a decent place for Mary to have her child
But Mary said it just seemed just right and she blessed it with her
smile
Chorus:
Cause what made it special was the baby in her arms
God sent Him down to give the world a second chance for you and I
That's why we have Christmas at this time each year
It's the baby's birthday party that brings us so much cheer
Now kids the presents that all of you exchange on Christmas
Represents the gifts that baby Jesus received the night he was born
He got all his presents from three wise men
Who followed a star
And walked a long long way to the stable
So everytime you tear open one of your presents
Think about that baby and say
Happy birthday Jesus
I'll open this one for you
Repeat Chorus
OK all together now
Happy Birthday Jesus
I'll open this one just for you

Can You See The Darkness

Can you discern the freedom of unbarring your soul to the only One who asks nothing in return, but love. What can we offer back but our trust and fears?
One day we will weep no more for we will have given Him both unashamedly.

Truth creates a meaning for our dreams. Ask the questions I may have missed. Write, scribble, highlight, document, journalise, whatever! Get the point across! Do not allow limitations, for life will not hesitate to pass you by.

Growing All around us a generation gone blind, unaware as the real darkness shadows their light. Illumination dims the wisdom of their Resolve.
Darkness maintains a comfort zone, A taboo and handicap to the sighted.
There survives a single unrelenting truth; sightless perspective belongs to all who lack vision. Darkness is far more sinister than the absence of light.
There is no discrimination, the desire, the forfeiture of your soul required.

Our world lacks the determination of true sightless visionaries.
(Helen Keller, Stevie Wonder, Andrea Bocelli, etc.) Accomplished individuals having shared the light of their darkness with the world. Do you believe 'things aren't always as though they appear? , Who then owns truer vision the sighted or those challenged by sight? Hold that thought for a moment.
Now, Close your eyes and ask that same question;
only this time in your new world you have never been sighted.
Your entire existence, 'blinded' by the awareness of never having known vision.

By an order of magnitude Light ends darkness, as even a consideration.
Each day creates a new opportunity for the continuum of life.
Light and Life co-exist whether one lives in the darkness or light.
One needs faith, not vision, to experience the truth.

If I Ever Get To Look Back On All Of This

If I ever get to look back on all this
even if it's just to show me how wrong I was
about so much, how much I risked for so little,
I don't want to have been mean and petty here,
I don't want to have lived short-minded
as if my brain never grew to its proper height
and I had to live close to the ground
with burrowing wasps and centipedes
trading toxins in the grass like slumlords.
Tried to live like a magnanimous man
with an open hand whenever my luck kept pace
with my generosity. Didn't want to die
knowing nothing about the stars, that shining
that grew in time even brighter in the dark within.
Wanted to know the fury and compassion, genius,
the affable kindness, madness and love of humankind.

Used to say we were born to see and be happy,
and if you couldn't find a meaning that suited you,
make one up of your own. Don't waste
the great creative potential of the absurd
and try to fit yourself like a little polyp of sentience
into the fossilized coral reefs of the past.
Go for the galaxies. What's to lose?
If you're going to fall, fall from a height.
Sooner a brilliant failure than a mediocre flight.
You'd be surprised at what the timing of one comet
falling out of the black halo around the sun
can mean to millions watching down below for signs.

Sensible shoes, or starmud on your winged heels,
Icarus or Neil Armstrong using his foot
to take a big step for humankind, walk your mile
standing up as if you were scanning for leopards,
your simian continuum at a fork in the road.
Danger is a capricious muse, but it can still
rivet you with inspiration. The hunters get eyes.
You grow an exoskeleton, then rib
the walls and rafters of the house and soon
the sun decides where the windows are going to go.
The Hox genes talk, and you're the topic of conversation.

You start listening as if
you were listening in on yourself,
all those voices and things
for words you don't understand,
bliss, butterflies, sorrows and assassins,
the victimized heroes of egoistic tragedies,
and the poetry in the pity of unexpurgated passion.
Lovers in the last throes of unmitigated catastrophe.
The rush and turmoil of the picture-music
going on all the time, shapeshifting
from one musical scene into another
and even you with your hands over your ears
sick of listening to the cosmic hiss,
climactic cymbals in the great performance
just waiting to come together like a hadron collider
deep underground where black holes in space
are born of the impact. If you're not already
too calculating, or mesmerized like a stone bird
by the snake-eyes of the dice, put some money
down on yourself as if you had one to lose,
and if for nothing more than the exercise,
kiss your prophetic skulls for luck and let them roll.

And when you love, don't approach a seabed on the moon
with a spoonful of water you can both sip from.
Return like an ocean with a convincing atmosphere.
If fools rush in where angels fear to tread
the angels will follow soon enough, with blessings
on the horns of your head. Learn
every gesture of her eyes like pictographic signage,
of her heart, a grammar for two, of her mind
be the no one to lift its veils, of her body,
apprentice yourself to the genius of her starmud.

Everything that lives is a gesture of the absurd
the imagination delights in elaborating
like people with the personalities of apple-trees
or the encyclopedic prolixity of the Burgess Shale.
I am is not the cornerstone of anything.
I imagine. And the wind is the threshold of the tent
that sheds the desolation of a self like a flower
that blooms in fire. Why water a mirage? Live large.
Squander stars on your vision of this, swallow the abyss
to keep your emptiness well fed, let your wisdom
be the private life of space, your time on earth
be passage and transformation, and your heart
cherish the bliss of all, animate and inanimate alike,
who suffer the same dream of being awake that you do.

This War’s for you..

Microwave with packaging too

This War’s for you

No Secondhand – everything new

This War’s for you

A 4 by 4 won’t smaller do?

This War’s for you

Living in your plastic zoo

This War’s for you

The rubbish that just grew and grew

This War’s for you

The things you brought and threw

This War’s for you

Heating up to 32

This War’s for you

A Revolution perhaps a coup

This War’s for you

Children maimed by bombs that flew

This War’s for you

TV propaganda for you to View

This War’s for you

Ain't This a Bitch

Ain't this a bitch?
when you have helped someone out constantly,
but when you need their help they are no where around.

Ain't this a bitch?
You introduce a friend to your lover
and then two days later you find them in the bed together.

Ain't this a bitch?
you just wrote the greatest poem you ever wrote,
and right at the end of it before you can save it the power
goes out.

Now, I know some you reading this poem
are probably saying I know he could write a better poem then
this. You're probably right but I felt this one
Now, Aint that a Bitch
