Good and Evil, Light and Dark

There will be a time.
When good is defeated.
When lights vanish from time
When the sun does not rise to greet the next day
There will be only night
in night there is only darkness
And in darkness there is only evil

There will be a day
When evil dies
When the stars fade away
When the is no moon to light the way
And on this day there will be nothing but mist

In a world without good and evil
There is no reason
There is nothing
But people in the streets trying to find their way home through the mist hiding their way

Moments

Of all the Graces praised
least in the West
but better understood in the East

is that of the ability
to Endure.

Not passivity,
but deep understanding given.

The Western view is that all is chard
and moments are all that matter.

But incidents and moment-pieces
are not lives or even a day given.

But enduring each moment
is better done
from understanding the whole
from which the moment comes.

Moments, the Easterners say
are not aggregated
to be taken together to make a day.

Rather a day is given as a whole
but in the West we pluck moments stray
and munch them according to our appetites.

But the East says each day the sun does not rise to greet a new moment;
the Sun inaugurates a New Day.

So if this moment is now overwhelming
it means you missed the Sun-Rise Last
and will miss the Sun-Rise Next
because you latched onto a stray moment
which is but a chard of the whole day.

So, the wisdom here,
at least I think,
says
Live not for the moment
for but the whole day
there is where salvation,
hope, love, and peace lay.

So if my life-goal is moment placed
there can be no peace
only schizophrenia.

Can I, for example, change my views
moment to moment
becoming a moment to moment changeling;
if I do, I drive myself crazy;

I will only know what I truly believe
if I am willing to endure
each moment to see what the whole day brings.

If life is a marching of days
it's is only clear sometimes
what it all means
or meant
at life's conclusive end.

Humm,
Let's us then not lose heart
and leave the movie
before the end or before the movie
even starts;
lean back
my Dad used to say
enjoy each scene
but don't mistake each scene
for the very very end;

Or for that matter,
each bad moment
as the whole day.

If whole societies adopt the Moment View
then you have America;
whip fast idolotries changing from moment to moment
with each fashion change, the consumer religion
and all crave
living for the moment's thrill.

Contrast that to China say
where people save 20% of what they earn
and don't overspend
planning to endure, not the moment's whim.

America used to be that way.
I can still hear my Grandmother say
a penny saved is a penny earned.
So what happened to us along the way;
this generation?

Humm
I think I will pause for a moment
and in doing so
lose my way.

There Are Times When The Sun Does Not Shine

who argues
about the rainy days
when the sun
does not shine
like a child hiding
on the skirt
of her mother

who disputes
lean times
and hungry days
when we simply
bite our tongue
swallow our saliva
and say we
just had lunch

when this happens
we can do nothing
we let all these times
come and then wait
when they finally leave

for like the sun that
does not shine today
tomorrow it may come
and shine again so brightly!

Good verse Evil

There could be a time
When good is defeated
When lights vanish from time
When the sun does not rise
There will be only night
In night there will be only darkness
And in darkness there will be only evil

There could be a time
When evil is defeated
When the dark is banished to the fiery depths of hell
There will be only happiness
People will not live in fear
The earth will be blinded in light
And in light there will be only good

But you have a choice
You can choose to fight the dark
And conquer the evil
Laughter is the best weapon against evil!

Now And Then

In the beginning of it all there was the land
And the sea and she sky
Then into the middle of it all there came man
To live on the land.
And then a great nation
Put into operation an evolutionary plan
Now mighty corporations and politicians rule the land
Wish I could remember when
We were more innocent
Than all of those violent bitter men.
The world was much younger then
But we were much wiser then.
Before we were full of discontent.
It's too bad the simple ways came sadly to an end
I guess that's the difference between now and then.
In the beginning of it all there was the land.
We were much younger then
But we were much wiser then
We never questioned why or when
One day we'll be born again
Our lovers and friends will remain
To live in a world without suffering and pain
And I can see a day when enemies are friends.
And there'll be no distance between now and then.
In the beginning of it all there was the Land.

World Without You

If there was no sunshine
I could learn to live with the rain
Darling if I had to
I could trade pleasure of pain
I could live without foot or money
Wouldnt be so hart to do
And if the stars fell down from the sky
Baby I would make it through !
But in a world without you
Where would I be
Where would I be without you babe
In a world without you
Where would I be
Where would I be without you babe
I could breathe without you babe
Wouldnt be no music
No reason to laugh, no reason to smile
Couldnt call it living
Without nothing to make the living worthwhile
You know that it would all seem worthless
If you werent here with me
I could have the world in my hands
Nut I wouldnt have a thing
Baby - it would all be worthless
If you werent with me
I could have the world in my hands
But I wouldnt have a thing

Life Is Nothing But A Race

Tears roll down my cheeks,
I've been crying for years, months and weeks.
I look at my sad face,
Just to realize that life is nothing but a race.
Money talks everything and everyone needs it,
They don't know the value of human care, not even a bit.
Justice is denied to the poor everywhere,
Who will know their needs, who will care.
When I try to speak their needs,
They pluck me off from there like weeds.
But even if they burn me in the fire of hell,
And even if they leave me hungry deep in a well,
I will always speak for truth and justice,
And my duty to the poor, I shall never miss.
For, I am like a baby deer in the forest,
The lion catches me and leaves the rest.
For I was innocent and stayed there alone,
Not moving a bit, still like a stone.
But when I lost my courage and tried to run and flee,
No one was there to help me.

I Am Tired Of The Rhyme I Am Tired Of The Rhyme

i am tired of the rhyme
and rhyme just to rhyme with you
at the expense of my thoughts
at the loss of my spirit
at the defeat of my spontaneity
my streams flowing and stopping looking for the proper word that sounds
like the previous word
until i am drowned by the rage and upsurge of my emotions
just let me be myself
let me flow like a river without the banks restraining me

in the canalization of my dreams
i will be nothing
but a line
parallel
to yours and they do not really look and sound right
i am afraid to say i am sorry
i will not be beautiful with you
i will be beautiful alone so alone in my own solitude.

Nothing But A Child

Once upon a time
In a far off land
Wise men saw a sign
And set out 'cross the sand
With songs apraised to sing
They travled day and night
With precious gifts to bring
Guided by a light
They chased a brand new star
Ever towards the west
Over mountains far
And when it came to rest
They scarse believed their eyes
They'd come so many miles
This miracle they prized
Was nothing but a child
Nothing but a child
Could wash those tears away
Or guide a weary world
Into the light of day
And nothing but a child
Could help erase those lines
So once again we all
Can be children for a while
Now all around the world
In every little town
Every day is heard
A precious little sound
And every mother kind
And every father proud
Looks down in awe to find
Another chance allowed
And nothing but a child
Could wash those tears away
Or guide a weary world
Into the light of day
And nothing but a child
Could help erase those lines
So once again we all
Can be children for a while

Santa Claus Goes Straight To The Ghetto

( ) = santa voice
[ ] = squeaky kid voice
Intro: bad a$$
Is that the black santa claus? (ho ho ho! merry christmas!)
I want a super nintendo ... yeah, sega genesis, yeah,
Street fighter 2, all these games...
[mommy! is that the black santa claus?
That is the black santa claus! mommee! mommee! mommee!]
Verse 1: dat nigga daz
Its 12.30 am, christmas eve
Im out with the gangstas and thieves
Celebratin, postin up with eggnog [head up up] in my cup
[put rudolph and moses] lil bang-bangin and coastin
Down the block but be careful for the heart, because its posted
Some stay to this day that christmas aint nothing but another day
But, out of respect, I gotta give the lord his day
Tell me, tell me, where do the homies and bums got to sleep? {nowhere}
Where do hungry and the needy-greedys got to eat? {but who cares? }
Life is so crucial and cold, [its worse] for the children
In this world they hopes and dreams cant afford
The young and old churches and spiritual dreams, seasonal things
Heard throughout the ghetto reaches gangstas and dope-fiends, huh
cause those who aint able get it now can finally get it
cause the ghetto santa claus has sprinkled the hood and now we ballin
Livin to a new year of better thangs
Celebrate it with some champagne, ha ha, check it ...
Chorus: nate dogg
Santa claus ... is coming straight to the ghetto ...
Bridge: snoop doggy dogg
Now on the first day of christmas, my homeboy gave to me
A sack of the krazy glue and told me to smoke it up slowly
Now on the second day of christmas, my homeboy gave to me
A fifth of hendog and told me to take my mind off that weed
Now by the third day of christmas, my big homeboy gave to me
A whole lot of everything, and it wasnt nuthin but game to me
Verse 2: bad a$$
Back then, you woke up to the sound of i saw mama kissing santa
Made you remenisce on the old fashion christmas days
Gifts, miss a fat man jolly with joy
Down ya chimney with toys for lil girls and boys
Pumped up, I jumped up before the sun peeped in
And hoped to catch a santa claus creepin down my hall
Ran to the window, put my eyes to the sky
To see if I could see the sleigh that parlayed and pushed a fat guy
I sigh, aint no sign, but everything under this tree in my house is mine
My bike, that, and this plastic ninell do fine till next year come
I try to see the same thing, they got us brain washed dumb
And when you find, it aint no santa, christmas still mean a lot
cause its the time to get together and give all you got
You got food, good moods, and whats better than together with your people
When wishers give a toast by the tree, its merry christmas
Chorus
Verse 3: snoop doggy dogg (starts during chorus)
(dont get too close because you might get shot ...
Welcome to the ghetto ...)
Santa claus on the ceiling, jack frost chillin
Pinch the grinch for being a holiday villain
Seasons greetings, all the proceedings
Are brought to you by the church house where well be eatin
Chestnuts roastin on an open fire
Singin my jingle, where is kris kringle
I didnt pop, I aint even shouted
I even stayed in the house, where the homies tried to sneak me out
And all I want for christmas is my 6-4 chevrolet
And a granddaughter for her grandmother beverly
Aint that somethin? nah, aint that nothin
How its christmas time and my rhymes steady bumpin
Everybody happy, hair still nappy
Gonna steal a gift for my old grandpappy
Catch me giving out turkeys at the church-house
Dont try to work me, just stand in the line and everything gon be fine
Holla at ya folks, boy, its goin down
Aint no help from no elves, just tha dogg pound
And we passin out gifts, blazin up spliffs
Christmas on the row, can you dig it? {can you dig it}
Chorus
Verse 4: tray deee
Christmas eve, by the leaves, every 6 with the year
Girls and boys full off joy with the season cheer
Smell the sky, hella pies and cakes gettin baked
To be ate after everything gone off your plate
But wait, not tonight its straight beans and rice
On the table, are we able to proceed tonight?
I wonder what the morns bringin so its hard to doze off
Three o clock in my socks I crack the dope song
Hopin when I open the door Ill see santa
Now who the hell is this in this blue bandana
Messin with the boxes thats up under the three
Look like santa claus been crossed to a woman to me
Now Im comin to see, the whole picture gettin clearer
How we have messed; I says best get nearer
Mirror, mirror, please, its seemed Ive be deceived
And thank the same trick for the gifts I receive
So I creep back, and act like I aint even peeped it
Thisll be me and moms private secret
Chorus till fade

That I Can Always Suffer Too With Or Without You

..and so i must
declare that
at the end of this day
i have still lived
so well
with or without
you,

... and so i must now have shown to
you,
that i can be my own
best friend,
with or without
you,

the fact is,
i miss you too, but i assure myself
for days now,
that i can be my own
in suffering,
that i can always suffer
too
with or without you

...but just the same
let me say

thanks.

Nothing But the Blood

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon this I see -
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing, this my plea -
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Nothing can for sin atone -
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done -
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

This is all my hope and peace -
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness -
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

CHORUS

Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Dead

A KNOCK is at her door, but she is weak;
Strange dews have washed the paint streaks from her cheek;
She does not rise, but, ah, this friend is known,
And knows that he will find her all alone.
So opens he the door, and with soft tread
Goes straightway to the richly curtained bed.
His soft hand on her dewy head he lays.
A strange white light she gives him for his gaze.
Then, looking on the glory of her charms,
He crushes her resistless in his arms.
Stand back! look not upon this bold embrace,
Nor view the calmness of the wanton's face;
With joy unspeakable and 'bated breath,
She keeps her last, long liaison with death!

Mi Chico Latino

Donde esta el hombre
con fuego en la sangre

Ive got a secret.I cannot keep it
Its just a wisper of a distant memory
Just a dream or so it seams
Take me back to the place id rather be

You left a fire in my eyes
That lightens up the darkest skies
I'm giving up im letting go
I'll find my way so

[Chorus]
Take me back to my sweet lavida
Find my love my dolce vita
Show me where i need to go
Donde esta mi chico latino
La la la la
Ay-y-y-ay
La la la

Stolen moments time has broken
My eyes ares open to this life-long mistery
And so i'll go with what i know
Take my chances and run with destiny

Now there's fire in my eyes
I'll break away and say goodbye
I'm free to be im letting go
I'll find my way so

[Repeat chorus]

Ay-y-y
Que sueno

There's a lot of things we can do to balance out what Obama's done and going forward show the American people the Republican Party can govern. I want a coalition of tea party people, independents, moderate Democrats trying to find a way to move this country forward before we become Greece.

Aint Nothing But Love

[verse 1]
Shoulda know, when I looked into those eyes that, I was going to be free
From the bondage of those who never loved me
And I shoulda know, when he simply touched my hand, he would understand
All of my wants and all of my needs
You were sent alone to love me
[hook]
Aint nothing but love (that what it is)
And it gets sweeter and sweeter
Like heaven on earth
Wont you just give me more and more
[verse 2]
You love me baby winter, spring, summer and fall
And its like Im blinded
I see no one but you at all
Just the sound of your voices give me
Chills up my spine ya ooo it thrill me when
You love me all night
Your lips speak to me in a language I never knew ooo, but oh how
I understand your heart
When it feels the love from you
[hook]

Water From The Moon

I've looked everywhere I can
Just to find a clue
Oh to get to you
And make you want me
And I've run circles around the sun
Chasin' after you
Oh but it's no use
Can't you see that I'm going out of my mind
Trying to find a way to get through to you
Oh you don't know how hard I try
And I try and I try
What do I gotta do

Do I gotta get water from the moon
What do I gotta do
To make you love me
Do I gotta turn the sand into the sea
Is that what you want from me
I've done everything that I can do
But get water from the moon

I've reached high up in the sky
Tryin' to steal the stars
Oh to win your heart
But even that's not enough
And I've searched every book I know
Just to find the words
Oh to touch your world and get some love out of you
I've already given all I can give
And I don't know what's left to try
And I try and I try
What do I gotta do

Do I gotta get water from the moon

For Every Time There Is A Poem

FOR EVERY TIME THERE IS A POEM

For every time there is a poem
And for every season also
For life there is a poem
And for the end of life
For what we love and what we hate
For what we are and what we are not
For our vanity and for our most caring love
For our goodness and for our failings in goodness
For what is and what is not
For what was and what will be
For all things and times and seasons
There is a poem –

But perhaps
Beyond what our mind and reason can know
There is a time too
When no poem
However good or great or wise
Can speak of what we feel-

No poem as deep as the silence of Awe
And Gratitude to G-d.

Between Grief And Nothing, I Will Take Nothing

in this small space in this narrow alley
in this room where there is only
you and me, where you love and hate me

i take this smoke, this last breath
as you leave, telling me
it is over there is no us

you challenge on this pain
that i am not prepared to accept
between you and nothing
between this grief and your leaving

it is over,
i will take nothing

we have nothing to begin with
anyway, i will take nothing

there was never something
there was never you and i am telling you

there was no me too....wanna play?
i know your games too.
