“Live & Learn”

You live and you learn,
When you lose you earn,
Before you walk you crawl,
But to learn you fall,
To begin is within,
Just as airs in the wind,
Forgive as you sin,
And even when you fail,
Make it a WIN!

Hope

Hope was no longer in existence.
Hope, I so admittedly resisted.
Hope, I never expected to find.
Hope, I left so very far behind.
Hope, with all its godforsaken lies.
Hope, a part of me inside always cries.
Hope fills my being with her light from above.
Hope, a new outlook have I been given.
Hope, through her have I been forgiven.
Hope, again shall she not be lost...

“Utopia”

I come to you through the night,
Close my eyes and fantasize,
Sense your presence and touch,
Feel my heart speed and rush,
My hands caress your waist,
Hear your breath in amaze,
Captured by the beauty you bare,
Absorbed by your exotic stare,
Your lips suctioning pressure,
Ecstasy increases pleasure,
Spread your long smooth wings,
Enter...

Choices
When you don’t know what you should do or where to turn
If you are nervous, uptight and your stomach churns;
Take a step back and think things through
I am going to tell you what you should do.
See if the decision is born out of love or hate
Then the choice will be easy, you won’t have to wait
Always and without fail, if the choice is from love
Then I guarantee that it is sent from above...

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 Crazy Horse maybe this Native got a death wish. So French kiss the raised fist. I did this for y’all indigenous. Now I’m behind enemy lines...

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...

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,...

The people around you don’t seem to care anymore

So much lies and secrets you wonder what friends are for

Nobody to talk with because their hearts are closed

They make jokes, you shed a tear and feel so alone

 

I’m no different, I’m just like you

In my moments of despair I don’t know what to do

Our paths are parallel, like your social-net site

I stare at my wall feeling the...

Hear The Whisper

There’s a word;
It describes a feeling
A state of being
That consumes a person’s being
Deeply.
Inside, it wallows in an abysmal void;
A vortex of darkness.
In which one finds a contradictive sense of stoic joy.
Yet,
This joy is painful.
It cries out in anguish,
Silently,
Solitarily,
In the shameful darkness...

Passion For Art

It begins in the mind as a seed planted in soil,
Scenes that form from the colors of imagination,
Taking shape within the soul to boil,
Each object pieced together from fragmentation.

The picture is drawn out of shapes to lay a foundation,
The paint diluted with water to flow on paper,
Each stroke of the brush brings a picture to fruition,
Every detail laid down with a fine...

“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...

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...

 "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...

Hours upon hours, I exchange blows with the boy growing into
A man standing in front of his mirror,
Mental deterioration as I analyze and criticize the image
Reflecting back into my eyes,
In my mind, insecurities became superior, confidence became
Inferior,
My mental residence is in need of new interior,
Outside opinions I am in fear of,
A huge role that was played to perfection, outside opinion...

Mail Call

Darkness and loneliness fill my cell
With pain and fear too great to yell.

I wait for the mailman
To deliver a letter to me
As I wipe away tears
That no one will see.

I pray so sincere
With my head bowed to the heavens above
“Please God! Soon! Send a letter of love”.

I long to gaze upon pages so dear
Written riches on pages
To...

Admire My Taste Part 2

Tonight we dine out…5 star restaurant in your direction…I think I might pick that medium rare to savor that flavor, what you think? …Pop a bottle of something aged well…while I scan every detail and alias of upscale cuisine, yeah well it seems you all over the menu love…

I think I’ll have that fresh catch drowned in Orchid Meadow, excellent choice, huh. I...

Lotus Flower Bomb

Lotus flower of the freshest petals,
Blooming in the ambience of heavens
Hidden in esoteric meaning beyond
The most precious special….
Lotus flower….
The very meaning to adorn in exquisite
Reality….
Lotus flower, I can’t guess your
Fragrance.
It’s like Jasmin sweet scented cinnamon,
Lemon vanilla, exotic, yes yes...

“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....

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...

“RAIN DROP”

A lonely flower stood in a field, it had lost its will to survive. Not even the birds or the sun and the sky, could keep the flowers sole from dying.  Until one day, on a cloud way up high, the tiny rain drop was passing by.  The rain drop knew just what the flower had missed, so the rain drop came down and gave the flower a kiss.  That one little kiss was all it took, for the flower to...

Focused on doing the time, just not to lose my mind, something about the struggle, is so define, so the love is hard to find, imagine searching and clawing for every nickel and dime, raised in a concrete jungle, all while doing time, so many tears, but unable to cry. I tried time after time, sometimes I feel I was built for this, picking loyalty over money every time cost me my life, but never again.

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...

“The Genome of MAD”

Mutually assured destruction,
Barrels ot each other’s heads,
Triggers never pulled;
Help in place by threat,
Of, and apocalyptic domino effect.
Finer result, nuclear winter…
Never more to see the sun,
Without Ra, no life can sustain.
Angered are the Gods of Man
The Anunnuki shan’t save us!
From ourselves, though they could,
For they...

Fly Together
By: GRRGACHE

Baby don’t you worry
Every thing will be alright
Jus hold tight by my side
Together we’ll fly high
Above the mountain skies
Over oceans and around the world a thousand times –

Baby don’t you worry
Every thing will be alright
Jus hold tight by my side
Together we’ll fly high
Above the mountain skies
Over oceans and around the world a...

                         Lost and Found

Lost in my seclusion, embarrassed and ashamed;

I have realized the truth; It’s myself I have to blame!

 

A desperate cry for help, to our Lord up above;

Knowing of His greatness, longing for His love!

 

No need to try to...

I can’t lie, you’re one of a kind, I won’t find another one like you, to make all my dreams come true.
What else am I to do, but love you forever and a day, the way you make me feel, the things you say can’t be explained anyway.
Love’s complicated, emotionally evaluated, highly elevated and sophisticated. Don’t rush, but no hesitating.
Patiently waiting is no longer an option. Contained in your love, I’m boxed in.
So...

NOT A CARE IN THE WORLD

A CARE FREE SOUL: Is responsible,
Not committed to anyone or worthy cause.
It has to be expressed lacking a serious view of life!

A INCONSIDERATE SOUL: Is heartless,
And displays an callous view of others!

A IGNORANT SOUL: Don’t know,
Or won’t turn on the light switch of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom,
To begin the learning process!

TOUCHED

Unintentionally I’ve fallen and possibly can’t get back up

times when we would cross paths I’d ponder if my feelings were based upon pure lust

No…They were based on love

Time suspended as I think about your arms

How intelligent you are and how you...

STICK

They claim I’m insane,
I’m psycho,
That I can’t control my inner cycles.
That my mind’s fickle
That somehow I laugh when it don’t tickle
That I’m so broke
I feel rich with a nickel.
That if the worlds collided in the middle
I’m the pickle
They claim
They hope
My ways don’t trickle
down…
down…
down…
to the next kid. That if indeed I tripped...

My childhood self looked down at me

from deep in the full moon’s face.

His eyes did not remember me,

for these eyes took their place.

He squinted his eyes and frowned and said,

“You look like a boy I knew”.

Just then when you tilted up your head,

I saw my light in you –

A ghostly and familiar light

that chilled my moonlight spine.

For if you were...
