“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...

“Waiting”

I’m waiting for my time to come.
Or waiting until my time is done.
They say there is no way that I can make it home but I plan on
Finding one.
I’m waiting on a letter but it seems like no one wants to write.
So I end up stressing swinging on anyone who wants to fight.
I’m waiting on a money order so I could get a pair of sneaks.
Because these...

In Search of Love

I don’t love some of you, I love all of you…
Your smile, the twinkle in your eyes, the way you
Walk, beautiful the sound of your voice when
You talk…
Love will overlook any flaw that you may see, because in my eyes
I’ve got the woman, my Queen.  Someone with...

Inert

The silent, frozen landscape lies

just beyond these prison bars --

remote, dead, immutable, unholy,

under a half-wit moon.

And I -- bound and gagged

in bands of white cotton,

scarce breathing, without sleep

as the guard stalks the corridors

soundless, his keys muffled mercifully,

as many breathe in sleep all around.

I live by a sea of lost souls...

Dear Friends


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 today
Telling you I love you is not enough
Telling you I adore all of you is maybe to much
Yet I know that when I look in your face...

I don’t cry,
My tears are tattoos..
I fear no man,
God sees me through…

This life is a struggle,
But my heart remains strong…
I’m confined away from freedom,
But my freedom’s beyond…

All these bars,
And barbed wire fences…
I hold tight to my faith,
And believe in my wishes…

My dreams are alive,...

“Freedom”

When the skies are blue
The flowers will grow
The Earth turns and with it
You are my life to show
Forever free, you’re my heart to be sewn
From the raging waters, to the calming seas
I can stand by your side and forever be
Always a friend, always a king
By your side, to set you free
All you have to do – is say
“In Jesus...

If these scars could talk,
What would my wounds say?
Would they speak of pain,
Endured along the way?
Of broken hearts left in my wake,
Of tears, prayers went up in vain?
If these cars could talk,
The monologue would be of sorrow!
Mistakes of yesterday,
And the uncertainty of tomorrow!
Would they explain how they were inflicted?
Each one painting its own individual picture?...

Destiny Mountains

Somewhere within, I’m free
I just have to dig deep and find that place within me,
Because this place below the pig’s feet
Is not my destiny.
No, it’s not my destiny.
It’s a place of temporary contingency;
Find inner-peace and be truly free,
Or,
Stay confined within the confines of my mind
Which keeps me in a constant state of...

"Things to Come"


Walking on the beach with the sand at my feet, birds flying through the sky, The Sun shining way up high.

Working in my garden I will do-the dirt in my finger it will run through. Honey Bees buzzing at head, the smell of greenery at my stead.

Going anywhere I choose, in and out any doors I want to walk through-anyplace, anywhere and not a worry nor care.

Making inquiries...

Life will nip you on your heels and never charge your for thrills, 
A solution in itself like pills but you can never pay the bills, 
What if there were some trickery like the one that lacks between you and me, 
Good and evil spirits bickering but without the mask now you see, 
If only I didn't feel so alone, maybe I could break to through the stone, 
Bending metal in all shapes like...

“Is This You”

A long lost friend who started as a pen pal
Sharing stories about our lives all the ups and the downs
Looking for a face in the crowd hoping that someone who cares is around
But still searching because that person hasn’t been found
But I won’t quit trying
‘Cause I know if I feel this way there’s somebody out there that feels the same
Good...

All around nothing but white

But everywhere you look, you can see signs of life

A snowman dressed with grandpa’s old clothes

The little children make Frosty with a smiling pose

The joy of life can never be more present

The presence of snow is always its own link

It shows us there is more to life than we idly think

 

As a blizzard prevents all work and movement

I committed a crime and caused great pain.
Shame shame.

I’ll grow old in this with this darkness, it will never be the same,
Shame shame.

Running from the memory of your name.
Shame shame.

I promise I loved you, I didn’t mean to betray.
Shame shame.

God will judge me when no time remains.
Shame shame.

Lord please give me a second chance to show I’ve changed.
Shame...

A lost boy in search of manhood
A system in place, making this find unlikely
Streets offered a look-a-like substance,
Until I found my heart as dark as my skin
Before I knew it
I didn’t know the difference between
Me and the streets
Lured into defeat by arrogant losers,
With American chosen to watch me bleed
Something that has to numb this pain,
So I medicate myself to sleep
I...

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,
Awakening me,

Bittersweet the change
Within me, my heart alive
Yet in agony,

Are you listening?
Seeing this computer screen?
Are you there at all?

I’m sending this out
A message in a...

Wasted Time

This time that I’ve wasted is my biggest regret…

Spent in a place, that I’ll never forget…

Just sitting and thinking about the things that I’ve done…

It’s just me and my hard driven guilt…

Behind a wall of emptiness that I allowed to be built…

Trapped in my body with reality suddenly in my face…

Full of remorse and stuck in this place…

Now memories of the past, flash...

Snow On The Rose         

I’m a rose that grows

Through the cold of snow

Inside the veins that flow

In the depths of the Earth that’s low

Beneath the skins of our bodies will show

Our true natures glow

My thorns protect my delicate soul

From the hands of a careless foe

And my son helps me grow to endure

The winds that...

CONCRETE CURTAIN

I was 15 when the concrete curtains fell,
And my space became a cell.
I yelled, I yelled for help,
but my cries, my cries though
were smothered by stone and steel.

Barbed wire twisted around my feet,
and the more I scream the more pain I feel.
Help me! Someone, please, help me!
I didn't kill that man they way they said.

He was...

The Phoenix Files Continued

Today…I burned my old flame
In passing…

I was on my way up and she
Was on her way…
In that, I could give two broken
Celibacy vows and honeymoons
Though I doubt a gift to give would
Be easily received…in doubt.

Today…I burned my old emotions.
I experienced a surge of whatever
In my urgent operation...

OFTEN

Often,
I find myself wishing for a friendly speck of hope;
Someone who can let me know,
That my heart is alive and well like a stethoscope.
Often,
I raise my head high toward the sky,
Despite the weight of my fate, or the slop on my plate.

Often,
I march forward toward another day,
As time passes by, and I search for words to pray.

The heart of a lion;...

An example of crazy is continuing to be the same.

When the same has never prospered you being a fool is what you claim.

Quit hunting things that should not be.  Enjoy life is what to do.

Turn in that dated uniform, and try on something new.

Negativity has no power.  Obstacles hold no sway.

Seek the good of your tomorrow.   Leave the bad for yesterday.

Show the world what you...

HAUNTED

People die,
Beauty fades.
Love changes,
And you will always be alone;

People die, so love them every day.
Beauty fades, so look before it’s gone.
Love changes, but not the love you give.
And if you love, you will never be alone.

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...

“Greetings to You”

This is the deepest, sincere, thoughts of my heart, mind and soul!

Since the beginning of time, I've had these thoughts, desires and feelings towards you, before I was born.

Since I became aware of my existence to be, it has been a passion burning deep and strong inside of me.

This passion consumes me like hunger yet satisfied, many times it seemed that hunger was filled, but that was a lie...

The Fire in my Heart

Came from God above

It's such a wonderful blessing

to receive his holy love

He kindled a fire

that makes me whole

It started in my heart

burns deep in my soul

He picked up this poor sinner

He sent me on my way

He promised to be there

every single day

Life is no longer a burden

Sin I must no more endure

He's...

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 that / I’m taking heads off / A new type of warrior / In a battlefield that’s evolved / And if you’re still lost / That’s why...

These walls about me are unfounded
on anything I said or did,
yet deep within these walls am hid.
Without the sky is clean and dry,
without the days keep tumbling by,
within is helpless waiting by
and deathless death of days.
So see my eyes which walk these halls,
which cannot close
to horrors called.
If ever torture had a frame,
Harris County is its name.

Note: I...

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...

Lost in Thought

They say I'm supposed to be in jail….living in hell…pacing back and forth in a cell waiting on mail my body may be trapped but my mind and soul will forever be free…..for I know me….connect on a level that is mental and emotionally…..the Sun, the Moon, the planets orbiting around one another is almost like my mind orbiting in clutter….at times I slip away…..thinking about that special someone turns my mind into warm...
