Depths Of Our Strength

The depths of our strength is not
Measured by who or how much we carry,
But simply our strength is Measured in how much we endure.
I believe that the weight of our trials,
Sufferings, and pain is transformed
When we begin to heal the wounds of Destruction
By changing the pattern of Life that has been rejected
For the advancement of knowing
That our souls cry Holy.
Be Blessed

The Untrustworthy Speaker

Don't listen to me; my heart's been broken.
I don't see anything objectively.

I know myself; I've learned to hear like a psychiatrist.
When I speak passionately,
That's when I'm least to be trusted.

It's very sad, really: all my life I've been praised
For my intelligence, my powers of language, of insight-
In the end they're wasted-

I never see myself.
Standing on the front steps. Holding my sisters hand.
That's why I can't account
For the bruises on her arm where the sleeve ends . . .

In my own mind, I'm invisible: that's why I'm dangerous.
People like me, who seem selfless.
We're the cripples, the liars:
We're the ones who should be factored out
In the interest of truth.

When I'm quiet, that's when the truth emerges.
A clear sky, the clouds like white fibers.
Underneath, a little gray house. The azaleas
Red and bright pink.

If you want the truth, you have to close yourself
To the older sister, block her out:
When I living thing is hurt like that
In its deepest workings,
All function is altered.

That's why I'm not to be trusted.
Because a wound to the heart
Is also a wound to the mind.

UFObia

The same folks who do not believe
Life can exist on other planets
In this vast universe
Are the same folks who accept
Making regular visitations
To prisons and jails to view relatives
Caged like animals
At taxpayer expense
While real crooks and thieves
Deceive their consciousness
On a daily basis
For free
And they don't even see them either
Although their acceptance is allowed
Costing them their quality of life
Which has been invaded and degraded
With far less attention given

Black America (The Story Of Pain And Glory)

From the rich land of Africa where we were King's of our soil dripped in gold brought to you beaten, battered, and sold.America, we sailed across your rippling seas against our will as we sought survival while thousands of us lay desolate, demoralized, and dead before arrival.America, finally here where we forced to work without pay as our blood, sweat, and tears trickled against our brown skin from sun up till the break of day.America, to pass the crawling time spent on our ragged heels we let our voices ring out across the cotton fields. America, we sang, oh yes! we sang. About our captivity as well as are spirituality. America, song expressed our inner hope and sorrow for yesterday, today, and even tomorrow. America, your Constitution states that all men are created equal as we stood chained and lacerated from the leather, so tell me what holds more weight the Constitution or a feather? America, One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all that's what we were taught. One nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for y'all that's what we thought. America, your sun didn't shine so bright or fast while our fight we just had to outlast. And the struggle poured like Seattle rain, but 1863 finally free of those chains. America, but you didn't stop your hatred while many fled to the North where we felt the safest. In these days we still couldn't progress just an inch, it felt like a bad dream only we couldn't be pinched, as every waking morning the news read 'Another Negro Lynched'. America, throughout all the hardships we always had the music, music which bled through the depths of our souls, from the early spirituals of our ancestors singing 'Wade in the Water' to the muddy banks of the Mississippi where Men like Son House, Charley Patton, Muddy Waters, and Howlin' Wolf were playing all night in Juke Joints as liquor spilled, smoke rose, and sweat poured to the heartbeat of the Blues. Robert Johnson...ahhh...Robert Johnson the incomparable Blues-man who howled at the dusty moon! Broken ax slung over his shoulder, voice trembling at the crossroads as he wrapped his spider-like fingers around his guitar, picking with fury, singing 'I'm a steady rollin' man, I roll both night and day but I don't have no sweet woman to be rollin' this-a-way'. These Blues which began in the cotton fields and the Delta South made their way to the concrete jungle, the rhythm pulsating streets of Harlem where cool cats like Thelonious Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, and Charlie Parker were composing the wild and mystical sounds of Bop, (Be-Bop Be-Bop) Miles...ahhh...Miles Davis, the epitome of hip- dark shades, golden trumpet blowing in the streets of eternity, sweat dripping, veins screaming, his look- brooding and low externally blowing internal blues, his melody- colorful and vibrant as the most perfect hue, his notes- which would bend at his very will, his sound- captured and momentarily made still. And, the music well it's still something I can't quite explain, something that stabs you in the heart but feels so good! America, why all the suffering, why all the pain? here it is 1963 and your still the same. Segregated laws, segregated halls, man we couldn't catch a break even segregated stalls. Soon enough leaders for a new change arose out of the ashes of bigotry and etched there names into the walls of history. Huey P. Newton, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X illuminated the spirit of our youth and aged alike. Dr. King...ahhh...Martin Luther King Jr. our own worldly king of peace. Pah, Pah, ! two bullets cut across the Memphis sky, dream deceased. America, why when a King emerges you dethrone them? Is it because when the people don't have a voice you know you can control them? 1968 the years progressed tension rose creating stress, buildings burned as the country turned to a blank page of restless and un-godly rage. America, you killed our leaders but you could never kill our spirit.1975- we came to a period of self-empowerment and once again the music shined through us emphasizing the way we spoke and acted. 'Say it loud I'm Black and I'm proud' rang out through the inner city where poverty whispered around every corner. Gil-Scott Heron, Parliament Funkadelic, Curtis Mayfield, and Issac Hayes gave us a sense of belonging with their soul-stirring words and rhythm. The Godfather of soul...ahhh...James Brown the funkiest man in America, who grooved and shuffled across the stage, cape flowing across his back singing: 'It's a mans world oh but it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a Woman or a girl' The black woman- Mother of Earth, nurturer of child, teacher of love, where would our story be without you? 1994- The times they were a-changin' (as Dylan's prophecy read) the inner city, well the poverty wasn't whispering anymore rather howling through the street corners and the music reflected the times. Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Run DMC, and Tupac rapped the images they seen in their everyday existence. Christopher Wallace...ahhh... The Notorious B.I.G. rapped from the depths of his belly providing us with imagery and story which have yet to be rivaled. 'It was all a dream I used to read word up magazine salt n pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine' pah! pah! two bullets cut across the L.A. sky dream deceased. America, it hasn't been a dream rather a nightmare. America we can forgive but we can't forget. It's been nearly 600 years since you brought us here, men and women driven away from our family and peers.2012- America, look how far we've come from Kings to shackles back to Kings. America, your root of existence is planted by our seed and finally it's beginning to sprout. For so many years we were looked at as just an un-worthy resident, now look at us Barack Obama first Black president. America I am you, America we are you, America we are your story- Black America pain and glory.

Sung from our souls

Sung from our souls


In the sun we'll be one
a Kurt Cobain
who ended pain
a Marvin Gaye
who had to pay
the priced father's son

You and me reality
Oh brother brother
who does bother
what do we wrong
when moods too strong
is black then all we see

When we're diving deep
the rivers are growing
impules overflowing
in peaceful dreams we see
a road and destiny
that's risen us from sleep


Madrason 10-02-2008


'All in all is all we all are! ' Kurt Cobain; in dedication.

Poem Of Our Souls

Our seeking went beyond
sheding of tears,
out of enough we lost
jugdment, pain of the past
has thoroughly touch
me in an unpeaceful
place...
Penury and poverty has
turn me into mischief,
richies yet penury disagree
my wealth
our jubilation don't last
long yet tribulation
cometh
in notime,
poverty can jubilate without
fear of jugdment.
Penury.....
Penury has eatup
our plenty, poverty
now call us poor
poverty creeps into our
life and eat, drink
what we had left
in our store yet
he still pronounce us
penury.
Our souls walks alone
kings seeks shelter in
th darkcold wintet
calling on motherearth
to favour our pocket
puting penny into
penury still nothing can
change by chance
poem of our
souls'.

Save Our Souls

Black angels laughing in the city streets
Street toys scream in pain and clench their teeth
The moonlight spotlights all the city crime
Got no religion,
Laugh while they fight
Save our souls for the heavens
For a life so good it sure feels bad
Save our souls for the heavens
Save our souls for the promised land
Sweet tarts play the game and shoot to thrill
Runnin free through the trash, dressed to kill
The midnight show-stoppers, its a funny money game
A hundred thousand bleeding hearts, put us in our graves
Save our souls for the heavens
For a life so good it sure feels bad
Save our souls for the heavens
Save our souls for the promised land
Its been the hard road, edge of an overdose
No matter how high youre still too low
Ive been the dancer, the wicked romancer
Its a never-ending nightmare, edge of disaster

In The Darkness Of Our Souls

In the darkness of our Souls
We simply disappear Like
Vaporized Mist

We listen to
Our flesh torn apart
We let our nerves Break

We simply do not care
Where the breeze is going
We surrender
Totally defeated

Jewels In Our Souls

Planetary, grey white stars
We keep them in our hearts.
Where we never returning go...
Unlike snowdrops returning snow...
These stars we already know...
Are—our friends of near and long ago?
Their tears are too outspoken,
Their faces like clouds unbroken.
These are the jewels in our souls
These are the stars everybody patrols'.
Yes, ah' these are the stars'
Everybody holds within their hearts
Within their planetary, grey white souls.

We Have a Love that Unites Our Souls

We have a love that unites our souls
We love to love each other
For our love lives in our hearts
Keeping the fire burning in our eyes.
The riches of honesty and happiness
Bestowed on us was received with gratitude
In return we both bestow our love on every living soul
With respect for every living creature
We have travelled over life's mountains of dreams
Thru deep valleys of temptation and
With our love and God's guidance from birth
Showing living with love is a golden worth

Our Souls Have Touched Each Other

Our souls have touched each other,
Two fountains from one jet;
Like children of one mother
Our leaping thoughts have met.

We were as far asunder
As green isles in the sea;
And now we ask in wonder
How that could ever be.

I dare not call thee lover
Nor any earthly name,
Though love's full cup flows over
As water quick with flame.

When two strong minds have mated
As only spirits may,
The wold shines new created
In a diviner day.

Yea, though hard fate may sever
My fleeting self from thine,
Thy thought will live for ever
And ever grow in mine.

Our Souls Are Safe

Ghouls of heaven are beauty and modesty,
Greater deities come from this ugliness.
Their help is in hand, their aiding us is beneficial
When our life is like a cellar, and not a roof.
One house is forced to our self, and one home is essential
For they have no more than one and one is all.
Poor people are not rich in their paragraphs,
In their sizes and style, life is empty and non-proud.
Much is condemned by the rich,
Where is the speech of the poor?
The poor are ghouls, and we haven’t any goals
Or riches, but now we have.
Our heaven is not hell, and our souls are safe.

Our Lord Jesus Is With You

You may be alone in this world
With no friends around you
'Cause every word you say is true,
Our Lord Jesus is with you.

You may feel abandon by your loved ones-
Family, relatives, and friends.
Put all your trust to our Lord Jesus,
He will guide you throughout your sorrows.

You may be judged by your enemies
With their bitterness and tilted lies.
Have faith in Jesus and be merciful,
God Himself will reveal the truth for all.

Even in your days of success, happiness,
Anger, loneliness, frustration, weariness...
Our Lord Jesus is with you always.
He loves you as His precious ones.

Somewhere down the endless line
In which they called 'Eternal Life, '
Jesus will reward you in Heaven
And no more sufferings and pain.

Music Fills Our Souls

Music fills our souls,
so we can keep dancing,
out win the devils steps,
out dance him once and for all,

Music fills our souls,
the notes that are applied,
the sounds they project,
refill our hope, strength and desire,
so we may dance on,
this crazy marathon,

Music fills our souls,
it give us cause to rejoice,
a reason to keep the steps in stride,
a feeling of serenity,
a vital component to survive,

Music fills our souls,
we know we could not do this alone,
so we asked our gifted friends,
to help us in our quest,

Music fills our souls,
our friends came along,
put the melody in the air,
the passion in our souls,

Music fills our souls,
by the love and grace,
our friends have shown,

Music fills our souls,

Struggles And Pain

The struggle, the pain,
When will it end?
How much more can I take of this?
How many times must I be tested?

How many time is it till I am wise?
I am a girl with a huge heart, and
I cry for others when it isn't my part.

I struggle with emotions and doubts;
What is wrong with me?
What's that about?

I want to be strong in everything,
but so far I feel as if I have acomplished nothing!
Somedays I feel, I hate this place
but all I do is ask for God's grace.

Some times my faith isn't strong,
and I feel this world is way too tough!
It is hard not to give up and succeed in a harsh place
of races varieties.

So whatever happens to me today,
I'll just face it with struggle and pain.

But I know that there is a purpose for the stuggling,
and I will find the meaning in it...

All that happens to us is working for our good. ROMANS 8: 28

Love and Pain are the Same | Poetry / Lyrics

Four letters deep, they penetrate
Divided in to equal parts in a human brain
Feeling the same inside a heart
Love and pain

Blinding like the sun heat
Hurting like a sun burn
Bright like the sun shine
Furthest thing from planet earth

Around ball of fire
The hottest thing I’ve ever seen
Love and pain seems to be the same damn thing

You stained my heart with your love
And left a scare on my soul with your name Mr. Pain

It makes no sense, you can’t see the different
Pain is hope, it will pull you threw
Pain’s the thing that proves you
That love exists too

Blinding like the sun heat
Hurting like a sun burn
Bright like the sun shine
Furthest thing from planet earth
Around ball of fire

The hottest thing I’ve ever seen
Love and pain seems to be the same damn thing

Can you feel the love in my pain
I haven’t given up on our sun shine
It just clouded up, and left me in the rain
I’m soaking wet, and waiting for the sun to shine again

Our Souls Entwine with Energies Sublime

Our souls entwine with energies sublime
As elemental manifestations guide our way.
They guide this heart of mine.

Our Lords observe from their thrones celestial
As we dance in terrestrial spheres,
Seeking transcendence beyond the day.

Every now and then Our Lords appease our fears
Laying their survival in the hands of the Fates
As they descend to mingle with the offspring of creation.

Grey clouds upon the horizon feed the reminiscence
Of a time when we would believe everything our elders taught us
Only now for us to believe that they hath deceived us in their teachings,
Preaching as they are, a faith blind without comprehension.
Hey understand not the language of their creation.

Nine men dance a Morris eternal,
Feeding the need for preparation.
Logic it seems has left me un-even.

A time out of time plays upon this heart of mine.
As church bells chime beyond the horizon
We mimic in mime of the merging of the soul to unity.

Beyond the mask, above the shelf
Lay a woeful soul. Beyond the tides
An Elven queen, completes the circle whole

Ancient forest mothers converse with sky clad lovers
Breeding brothers in arms, defenders of the calm
That unifies the soul.

Into shadow lands we stride
Knowing that bright a sky
Exists within our eyes.

The Love That Youve Been Looking For

Lonely, thats not how were meant to be
But looking in your eyes I see
A heart that was abandoned
By a world that used to show you love
You feel like youre the only one
Whose day begins without the sun
Youre left to turn and face it all alone
Well, I know sometimes it seems as if
Fate has done you wrong
But if you look inside your heart
Youll find the strength to carry on
Youve got to leave it all behind you
Break through those lonely chains that bind you
cause loves not far away, its gonna find your heart someday
And when you feel its warmth surround you
Youll realize that love has found you
So turn away your fears
cause the love that youve been looking for is here
Suddenly, your broken heart begins to see
A love that lasts eternally
Just look ahead and never ever let a single tear drop from your eye
It breaks my heart to see you cry
The pain that haunts you every night
Because of all the emptiness inside
Well, I know sometimes it seems as if your heart is caving in
But if we look inside the soul well find the love we have within
I know sometimes when things go wrong
You search for strength carry on
But all we need to take control
Is the love within my soul
cause you know that love will find a way
To reach your heart again someday
You must believe its true
Now all you have to do

A suffering with pain

We are undergoing sufferings and pain
There is no end in sight and all our efforts are in vain
There is complete lack of confidence and brain drain
We on verge of loosing everything including life train

What have we gained from our past experience?
Why life stands at cross road with so much variance?
Have we not decided at all what can be good for us?
Can we not go in with clear mind and full trust?

We stand to loose everything in process
We have lot of problems ahead and got to face
We still remain attached to our views rigidly
We harp on unnecessary things and remember it vividly

This is pushing us to gallows
It never grants freedom or allow
We are not prepared to accept or follow
We cheat our own conscience with promises hollow

This takes us to such a place where there is no comeback
It is possibly a trap and we fail to realize or lack
It is such a tricky place that once you enter
There won’t be any escape route in the centre

We go on committing the blunders and still expect good result
We put self pride at risk and face the possible insult
This is new type of emergence and called new cult
The whole concept is to cheat and new strategies built

Everybody wants easy fame, name and money
It is bad luck on our part and not realized by many
We loose thousand in gambling but for noble cause not even a penny
It is strange but looks not isolated as funny

It is human psychology to go in for easy swim
We aren’t prepared to improve upon or trim
We follow on set norms and look upon others
We feel jealous on others fortune and continuously bother

It may takes to bottom of the things or at lowest ebb
People may try to frown upon you or even snub
You take it as routine matter and don’t resent
You have become shame proof and consent


We are known as selfish animal and go to any length
God has given us enough sense and power to react with strength
It can help only when used with courage and good will
It won’t served any purpose if used for tactics to steal

We may have enough time to improve upon and address
We can avoid unpleasant things in duress
It may definitely help to prevent the disaster
If we leave it to Him who is one and only Master

Save Our Souls

Do you think you need to
save our souls?
What makes you think
our souls need saving?

Do you feel you need to
save our souls?
To save your own... wretched neck?

What have you done so wrong
you feel you need to
save our souls so badly?

“Blessings are for the head
of the righteous one, but
as regards the mouth of the wicked
ones, it covers up violence.” Proverbs 10: 6.

“He that is walking in integrity
will walk in security, but
he that is making his ways crooked
will make himself known.” Proverbs 10: 9.

Some of us need
only to go to church;
for weddings christenings or funerals;
driven in our own hearse.

It was Simon Peter who said...
For a certainty I perceive
that God is not partial,
but in every nation the man
that fears him and works righteousness
is acceptable to him [God].” Acts 10: 34-35.

For the hearers of the law are not
the ones righteous before God, but
the doers of law will be declared righteous.

For whenever people of the nations
that do not have law
do by nature the things of the law,
these people, although not having law,
are a law to themselves.

They are the very ones
who demonstrate the matter of the law
to be written in their hearts,
while their conscience is bearing witness
with them and, between
their own thoughts, they are being
accursed or even excused.” Romans 2: 13-15.

What bounty payment price
do you expect
for your supposedly unselfishly
saving our souls?

How is it that you do not
yet know that “Hatred is what stirs
up contentions, but love
covers over even all transgressions.” Proverbs 10: 12.

By loving-kindness and true-ness
error is atoned for,
and in the fear of Jehovah
one turns away from bad.” Proverbs 16: 6.

What then is the inclination
of your heart? And what
does your conscience bear
witness for you to do?

Do you listen to your heart
your conscience?
Do you live by God’s laws
in righteousness?
Or is sin your joy your stumbling toy?

And do not become fearful of those
that kill the body but cannot kill the soul;
but rather be in fear of him that can destroy
both soul and body in Gehenna.” Matthew 10: 28.

For what benefit will it be to a man
if he gains the whole world
but forfeits his soul? Or what will a man
give in exchange for his soul? ” Matthew 16: 26.

Save Our Souls

A prayer as been said
for ever soul that dies
Why must that be so

Why cannot we live in peace
What gives us the right
To take an innocece life

Why must we forever
see the degradtation
of humankind

What about life
What about faith
What about hope

Can none of that
Save our souls
