 “Lost and Found”

A touch of emotion, I can’t see.
Was it your breath?
I want to feel you breathe.
But I’m so far away- still thoughts of you come to me.
Setting me free.
I’m so far away and here I have to stay.
But only in body, can they hold me down.
Now that you’ve found me once again.
My mind is free to come you.
Knowing your...

Believe In You

These are lyrics from a country song I’ve written. I hope that it inspires you to surmount any obstacle you might encounter. Belief in yourself and your higher power is the key. Whether it be God, Allah, Buddha or the devil – just believe! Remember: family and friends believe in you; children need and are counting on you – whether it be your kids, or kids of family and friends. Be strong for them...

Dano’s Girl

She has a lot to bring to the table
She can provide for her own
And has done many things on
her own strength.  When you come into
her life, offer your help and provide it
whether she freely accepts it or not. She
is independent, but that doesn’t mean she
doesn’t like having someone she can depend
on.

She was a brave soul, a rebel at heart.

Gangsta’s Cry

Under the moonlight of this dark and lonely night,

I can hear the sounds of a gangsta’s cry.

He’s tossing and turning, reminiscing on some painful memories,

Some that he’s blocked out for so long.

On this night he can’t help it and takes a stroll down memory lane,

Soon these memories become more than he can bear.

He tries hard to block then out but he can’t.

They...

“One Hundred”

I’m grateful to have a special
person like you, through all
the trial and tribulations
you still pull through.
And staying true to being a
good friend indeed, lending
that helping hand to a
friend in need.
Regardless of the sacrifices
you have to take, no
mountain you won’t climb,
to keep the promises you make.
“That’s Real”, hard to...

“In Search I Might”
Somewhere along my train of thought,
A sudden rush created a spark.
A spark that flowed within my soul,
Longing for a friendship that would grow.
Nothing more than sincere rapport,
Built on loyalty, trust and more.
 
Maybe today, maybe tonight,
Maybe a week, or a year’s time,
But search and search, in search I might,
Find a special friend for life....

It is essential that we address this very important aspect of life, which is to live in the moment. All of us at one point in time or another have been tripped by past situations that have caused (by our negative self-encouragements) many years of incomfortability. This pernicious process has been the cause of separation from loved ones, destroyed business endeavors, as well as promoting physical, mental, spiritual and emotional captivity....

 "IF I COULD BE"

If I could be anything
or anywhere
I'd be the wind
I could blow my kisses at you every day
so I could twirl my arms around you.
And I could run my fingers through your hair.
I would bring the rain for you
or make the sun shine for you
If I could be the wind
There'd always be a lovely smell in the air
nothing foul could stay...

 The Letter of a Gypsy

Hey Wassup
So this is a confession, I may be a stranger, but not too far
from where you are…  Just close enough to admire your beauty
from afar…Not on some weirdo stuff, but on some real stuff, you got me turnin in my dreams girl…

I know you don’t know me, but I’d like to know you…
‘Cause, I can’t help but wanna...

Real Recognize Real
You can either take my hand or take my word for it
If you're gonna play these corners caused the streets are slippery
And if you aint got nobody to guide you thru them
Then your fall for whatever it has to offer
I only know because of the niggas that came before me
They was getting seasoned while I was thawing out
Then they passed the game down to me
It was free, I just...

Benevolence and faith it takes

   For friendship forged anew,

The mysteries of destiny

   Then come gradually into view,

When the universe has crossed our paths

   And our stars have been aligned,

We’ll find if all has been in vain

   Or is righteous and divine,

For time reveals the truth or things

   And the contents of...

“LilPac My Sweet Soul Desire”

My sweet soul desire, my eyes have finally laid upon you
Praising them just from this sight of you my soul desire
Watering gas of tears has started shooting down my cheeks
From this very moment of sights from my Dear Sweet Soul Desire.
Take Care,
LilPac…

Tick tock goes the clock

Dripping down the walls

Melted wax and broken glass.

are on Epitaph for all time.

The final wave is on its way

Sent by Cybia's hand

a team of 3 to save the world

Aura's bracket shines bright

First the infection Then Mutation

Soon comes the outbreak Then the Quarantine

Twin blades to fight the darkness

Hella holds our only hope...

Gone But I hope I’m Not Forgotten

Here today but as the wind blows I sway but neither here or there
I’m planted in drab shades of grey, from black I fade, I’m gone…
Hope I am still here and present in the minds of some, though the majority of them
Deaf or dumb or maybe just mindless ones in a zone of timeless webs of thought
Silkly spun.

Hope I am not forgotten…...

Genuinely Him

I spin and rotate while standing still.
I of the Lotus, black fan, breaking hands, Martial Art Kung-Fu.
No thinking and thought’n or thought’n and thinking, only knowing.
Strike with wisdom, knowledge and strength (Great White Shark, Green Dragon, Night Owl). I am immune to poison. I eat it, human rats, human snakes, and bullies, etc.
My lifestyle is written in stone....

BROKEN MOMENTS

There comes a time in each of our lives where we have
Experienced what is called, “broken moments”.  It was once
Said, “That without a foe, a person will never know their true
strength”.  From the exiting of the womb, until the grave, every
one of us will experience unfavorable circumstances that will
either strengthen our resolve or utterly destroy us. ...

“Heart of a Man, Soul of a Woman”

You say you want to look into my heart,
I want to look into your Soul.
Both of us have our secrets hidden in closets to which the door is always closed.
Admittedly so, I’m afraid to open myself up to another person:
What if she doesn’t turn out to be whom I thought she would be,
Instead of easing the pain she increases the hurting.

Above Average

What do you see when you look at me?

Is it just charm, good looks, a great personality?

Do you see another man just like any other?

Just out to get what he can get?

Nothing serious, just a temporary companion?

Is that all you see, when you see me?

Then take this opportunity to get to know me

On a scale of one to ten, I’m a twelve and a half.

I’m unlike the...

Introverted Sunshine

Introverted sunshine…
Your nighttime dazzles while your stars blind
In reserved fine-ness your highness…
Though your beauty is in every eyes beholder
To those who can look up and define ya…
Under ya starry skies I wander…
Umbrella over me I’m under, it would seem
Mystique like.
More involved through my telescopes locked in...

The Love of the Season Autumn

In the crisp gentle wind of fall
You can see the beautiful brown autumn leaves big and small
Jack-O-Lanterns, bats and candy corn delight the children
But the biggest treat of all lies within them
A big smile across their face is what parents seek
To see their bright faces say “Trick or Treat”.

A time of Harvest, the season is of plenty
To...

Life isn’t what you expect

Life is what you make of it

Good, bad, ups and downs the

Smiles and frowns are the emotions

That make up a person everyday

Experience in living life.

Pain is the feeling of watching

Your life pass you by, unable to

Grasp it’s momentum.

“Ode To The Ex”

So I’m out with some friends, when I see you again
But you’re not by yourself, you’re with someone else
A cowboy hat and a white “V” tee, but I don’t like the way he looked at me
It might be the whiskey, it might be the beer, it might be his ass if he comes over here.
He follows you as you walk through the crowd, when you spot me and you...

Feelings of helplessness
Like a bad dream,
I can’t move, run or hide
A heavy instrument knocking on the inside
Darkness surrounds me
I'm falling and screaming, but my voice is no more,
Can this be real will I awaken
My body is sinking into the floor

Suddenly, a feeling, a sign
In a sea of darkness, a ray of sunshine
I push through, with all my might
“Damn I...

Phoenix Files Conflagration

Killing…Strangers…
I think…No I “Know” you don’t
Know me.
How could you? I’m only the same
Difference you thought was familiar
While thinking comes from not knowing.
I got your wheels turning and that
Hamster moving…
But you couldn’t know who I was but
To be where I’ve been is to...

LOOKING BACK

If I had another chance I’d tell you
that the things “we” had were right and
I threw it all away.

Time cannot erase the love and memories
we shared, but it does give me time to reflect
and realize just how much you loved me.

Now that it’s over and your gone for good,
I’m really not the same anymore.  I guess I
only have...

“The Journey of Life”

It twists and turns
With mountains to climb
And fires that burn

Shaped at a young age
So vulnerable and pure
Life at full speed
Is how we must learn

The good times and bad
Is a part of it all
When climbing a mountain
Sometimes you will fall

With each step we take
Comes pleasure and pain...

The road may look empty in the wake of night,
Until the sweet lights illuminate the road ahead,
What may have looked like a vacant, lonely road,
Is now filled with others on the same path as you,
With a honk of the horn or a brief conversation at a
Stop light, it’s likely you meet someone that can help
You reach your highest potential, encourage you
Through the hard times, an...

Share My Pain

Yes I did some lines
So I could try to find
How to feel fine, so I hit rewind
I’m crushing down these pills
I’m rollin’ dolla bills
Trying to kill off my feels
But I’m lost in these fields
Of oxycontin trills
The pain is bone deep
Got me sweatin’ through my sheets
Shaking, achin’ like a fiend
I can taste the pain
I can hear the dreams
I can...

THE PIT

Fallen down deep into a pit of despair,
Gasping at breaths but purchasing no air.
Once free to roam without any cares,
Now just a creature in an inextricable snare.
What can the purpose of this life be? 
Fighting battles in darkness no one can see.
The enemies are vast, fearless and bold
There’s silence and sadness here in this cold. 
The warm...

Raw thoughts transformed to words

And give life,

Verbalizing silent emotions about struggle

And strife.

 

Communicating my feeling just using

My intellect,

Articulating my passion on a different

Level so we connect.

 

Revealing the sentiments of my heart

Using poems as expression,

Disclosing the truth of my soul through

My written...
