Imagine waking up everyday
Getting out of bed to seize the day
Followed by a ritual and daily task
Of brushing your teeth, washing your face, and putting on your mask
Then walking out your inhabitant like everything is okay
You know, déjà vu of yesterday...
chipped paint, rusty doors
stained steel, and cracked floors,
a black rose
rose for an encore.
Rooted by tears of spilled dreams,
and the soil of being deemed
unenviable for life’s theme;
The way we feel
On mocking taunts
Spieled for our kneel.
Do you - Be you
In the battle
Verses of you
Turn down the bass
On the music
Tuned to debase
~Reflections~ Part 1
Precious reflection of mine, allow us to reflect on the rejections of time as we inspect the misconceptions of the neglections of a unique mind…
Confined conflict refines chaos by declining to impersonate. Designing a mined mind defined by defiance and inner...
Dance Me Outside
She was arrayed in purple and scarlet. With hair black as choke cherries, her eyes the brightest obsidian beneath dark lashes. Hips don’t lie and I marveled with great amazement. Never have I envisioned a more carnal enchantress of an Isis or Cleopatra, Queen of the...
Surface of a Heart
Standing on the surface of the heart searching for a way in
Stone, ice, metal, each has a key for a fresh laymen
Defenses built up stretched out pools so deep can’t wade in
Puzzles, riddles, pitfalls keep me sharp every time I gotta...
ARE YOU LISTENING?
I have been lonely;
Locked away inside my cell,
I was so alone;
Then came, one day, love –
Entering my cell and heart,
Bittersweet the change
Within me, my heart alive
Yet in agony,...

In prison see us with the cleats on. Put the stomps on the who baller block on my entrepenatives. Still the most hated. Shout the news. We done paid our dues. On count too. It’s not how we can. It’s how we choose. Power moves,...

Great Spirit shed light on my path second generation orphan, native nomad. Just a young man cub, raised without a mother’s love. The underdog nobody wanted to see win. Born in sin? No. But I walk a black road. Fugitive, no home on my homeland...
When I think of you
I think of leaves falling in summers wind
I believe whole heartedly in your trust my friends
you've been her for me mor than those who share my DNA
and yet because of you I could care less they aren't her...
I’m tired of these games of loving and leaving
Searching with my soul, body and mind
I’m begging, give me something to believe in
Show me trust and compassion of the truest kind
Exhume my heart from this draining bind
Mylz Tha Damned
We are down here. Down here we all float. In the belly of the beast, in case you ain’t know. They call this place Hell. I’ve come to call it home. If you’re scared go to church. I’m where the wild things...
I’m so symbolic
Broke the 1st rule of fight club
Sacred truths so mystery
I don’t even know it.

We understand God is nearer to us in solitude. There is a magnetic
and sacred connection that accumulates in solitude, but is quickly dissipated
by life in a crowd. We would deem it sacrilege to build a house for the one
My Road to No Where
It's hard to stay focused and in touch with my dreams
To block out the voices and misguiding screams.
They echo in my mind and tell me the wrong road to take...
Attracting me to a world where everything is fake.
People and Prison
People in the world wake up on a bed. People in prison wake up feeling dread. God remembers all the days you left.
People in the world answer their cell phones, people in prison the answer is gone, for God the answer is you're not alone.
There Somewhere Way Back in the Day
Words and melody by Rodney A. Warndahl
It is not too far distant
At least for my heart
Memories still remain
Encountering music and passion
Pokémon Sunshine and Digimon Daydream
The relics of my youth
CD player, Cable TV and a Playstation 2
I was a hero, A villain too
Even a giant robot from time to time
Cathartic moments and turbulent times
Most of my day spent inside
In The Depths of Solitude
I exist in the depths of solitude
Pondering my true goal
Trying to find peace of mind
And still preserve my soul
(CONSTANTLY) yearning to be accepted
And from all receive respect
Never compromising but sometimes...
Spawn Of Me (NDN Goddess)
In my mind, where I still hold my little dictator, my heart is filled with joy. I feel as blessed as the ponies are when the snows melt filling the streams with water and the fresh grass grows. It’s tradition for those who aspire to an NDN Princesses...
1st N8V On Tha Moon
First native on the moon / That’s how much I love you / Plus I’m a looney tune / Pep Lapew / If I throw that tomahawk chop / It’s off the head with you / Scalps is over with / This the new school / Metaphorically speaking / In case you aint caught...
A freezing wind chills the air around the ice shrouded mound.
There at the pinnacle, a forlorn, dying oak stands tall,
Skeletal branches void of leaves clawing skyward abound.
Unloved and forgotten, yet refusing ever to fall.
Don’t doubt how I know of this...
My life before prison
was broken and sad.
The life of a drunkard,
A liar, a cad.
I've spit in the faces
Of family and friends,
And don't have the courage
To pursue their amends.
It's been four long years
Since I had my...
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...
THE LAST HOSTILE
I am a problem for bringing savage back and it’s so matter of fact. Heart as black as the clouds throwing thunder and the court documents say it’s the U.S. of a versus me. Guess I’m a one man war party. But I’m not...
Alive In A Grave
When the casket walls start to cave in kicking my @$$, I start singing out loud bout taking it all back. Heyah! Way Heyah! And it sounds like that. Fighting terrorism goes way back. Since 1492 to be exact. And my ancestors don’t speak English. In the spirit of...
Yesterday is today
Tomorrow is forever
Last week was seven years
My mind is a cloud that sits on the ground
Life is a maze while I'm lost in space
Thoughts spin into sound then bounce around
Then get lost in ether
My Birthday came then went...
“The Devils Own”
Sittin in Hell sharin Satans seat
Battlin Demons Angel Sweet
Lost in notions misconceived
Bound by chains, most intrigued
"The Power of Forgiveness"
As I sat in that courtroom
Awaiting my fate,
My victim looked back
Into a face, she must hate.
When her eyes met mine,
Instead of aversion,
I saw only love,
To the point of immersion.
Make This Easier
You want to stop loving me
So, to make this easier
I’ll stow away the best of me
And call forth the worst of me
I’ll be the darkest
So, that whenever you close your eyes
Hopefully you won’t be able to see me...
