You will never know what a letter can mean until you have been where I am, or been through what I’ve been through.
I’m confined to a world behind four walls where no one can see me, and I receive no calls or visits.
Often I sleep and wake up alarmed, thinking that my family,...
You took my kids away from me
and they don’t even live with you
and the fed’s did too.
You put me on child support,
But you can eat too.
The fed’s fabricated my case
And your life is fabricated too.
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
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,...
Life is what we make of it
Whether free or in prison
Life is happiness to some
Or just another day gone
Life is work to pay our bills
Or hope for a decent meal
Life is home to a loving family
Or to your cell and ugly celly
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...
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
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...
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...
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...
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
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...
THE HORUS FILES
Right before my eyes I observe the sands
of time sift through the hour glass….And yet
the horizon is unchanged….
Life slowly fading from my father quickening his
Right before my eyes I see my wing span reach...
A woman is known by the company her mind keeps.
And if you hear what comes out of her heart, goes to a heart.
And when you love yourself like she do, it’s a romance for eternity.
She (spouse) is priority, rapture is what she brings to the...
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.

Lost in the dark I trip over bones
I follow the shadows and I talk to the stones
The chatter of teeth and the rustle of leaves
The wind whispers Annabelle Leah
glawing graceful She appears to me
A fey Queen named Annabelle Leah

Because I Care About You
I tell you sweet things because I care about you.
I wanna help you and not hurt you because I care about you.
I’ll protect you at all cost because I care about you.
I always ask you how you’re doing because I care about you....
Life Is A Dream
In this place, negativity is all I see
In this cell, pain is all I can smell
I ask myself, is this me, or am I adrift at sea?
How did I get here? Was it a mistake?
Or simply a cruel twist of fate?
Last night I had the most beautiful...
My hunger 4 your love has grown
So intense, that my heart has bitten
Into my soul trying to find a supplement…
Misty lady set my spirit free, no
Matter what I read or what I do,
My thoughts always return to you...
