Never Mess With My Spirit

Folder: 
Various Objects

Bro If You Wanna Go
You Better Take Another Look
Cause If What You See
Isn't Enough To Convince You
Then You Better Change Things Up

 

I'm Not Using My Strength
For Reasons To Beat Others
Or To Put Other People Down
I Use It To Protect The People I Love

 

But When You Cross The Line Of My Spirit
And You Start Hurting My People
You Go And You Break Their Hearts
And You Hurt Their Feelings

 

I Will Throw The Fight To You
So You Better Bring Your Flame On
Cause I'm Rocking This Collage
To Get Some Sense Into You

 

No You Ain't Gonna Touch Me
You Try To Throw A Punch At Me
You Gonna Find A Crack In Your Arm
Fierce Knee To The Chest
And A Crushed Face To The Ground

Breathe Into Life

Erasing The Clock
Turn The Knob
Feels Like No More Scars
Why Can't I Recognize Anymore
Can't I See I Can't Do This Alone
Why Do I Remind Myself
I'm Fighting This Alone
I'll Take A Stab At The Problem

 

One More Time
Because I Know I Won't Turn Away
Heart Attack In A Shell
Feels Like A Bruise On My Knee
Why'd I Do That Again
Can't Always Keep Looking Down
Just Lift My Head Into The Sky
You're Giving Me A Headache
My Hearts Beating
Like A Broken Radio
One More Time
I Just Need To
Look At The Clouds

 

The Lights Are Fading
Because Times Are Changing
Why Can't I Pick Up These Pieces
Because I've Seen Enough
Why Can't I Ever Stop
As I Feel My Soul Is Going Overdrive
Before I Enter The Twilight
Why Do You Strip Me
Excuse Me Of My Abnormality
Of Course Its Brutality
Can't You Understand The Morality

 

Its In Your Mind
Its In Your Spirit
Help Is Just A Prayer Away
Just Kneel And Pray Away

What It Used To Be

Oh Let The Sky Hit The Fire In The Moonlight
I'm On The Deep Level With Love
But I Can't Let You Off The Chase
Cause I'm In A Race To The Sky
Trying To Make Peace Here And All
I'm Sorry If I'm A Disgrace
But Since I Was Forgiven

 

I Can't Seem To Forget
How You Saved Me
How It Seemed To Be
Oh How It Used To Be
With One Cross And Three Nails
Oh How Was I Was Forgiven

 

The Scars The Used Te Cut Me
The Pain That Used To Drown Me
The Strain That Used To Ache Me
I Used To Think How You Cared About Me
Oh How You Used Words To Control Me

 

Because Love Broke My Heart
It Broke It Wide Open
It Broke My Feelings
Torn My Emotions To Pieces

 

But When I Feel Defeated
And When I Hear You Speak
I Feel Enlightened
It Gives Me Peace
It Soothes My Soul
Provides Me Shelter
Keeps Me Calm

 

Because I Know Who Cares About Me
I Know Who Loves Me Unconditionally
No Matter What I've Done
No Matter How Bad I've Been
The Things I've Done
The Word's I've Said
Thank Goodness I'm Forgiven

All I Gotta Do

Folder: 
Miracles

Some Days Life Feels Just Perfect
Other Days It Feels It Ain't Working
When My Faith Is Getting Weak
And I'm Falling On My Knees
But Here I Am, Once Again

 

Cause I Know It's Going To Be Alright
It's Going To Be Bright Again
One More Time I Feel The Pain Running Up
But Because I Know God Is On My Side
All I Gotta Do Is Shake It Off
Because I Know, I Just Know
That God Is Always With Me

 

When The Darkest Hours Come Before Me
When The Sky Turns Darker Than Black
I Know It Kinda Scares Me
And I Know It'll Follow Me
I'm At War With The World
Cause They're Trying To Pull Me Into The Dark
Trying To Crush Me Beneath The Rock
But All I Gotta Do
All I Know I Need To Do
Is Drop On My Knees And Pray

 

Some Say That Being On Your Knees Is Weak
Some Say That Its The Most Vulnerable Position
But I Say Its Knowing Who Holds The Future
Being So Bold In Character
What Makes Him Trust In This Person
What Makes Him Have Courage In This

 

I Don't Know What I Can Tell You
Maybe Its The Things You Experience
The Pain And Sorrow You Feel Growing Up
The Hurt And Stress That Kick You To The Ground
But All I Gotta Do Is Tell You To Not Give Up

 

Don't Give In To What They Say
Sure You May Be Different From Them
Sure You Might Look Different From Them
But You Are Unique Just The Way You Are
Don't Let Them Tell You Otherwise

Scar On My Soul

When Fear Comes Rushing In
And The Knife Comes Spilling Out
Out Through Your Skin
And Onto The Ground
You See The Blood Rushing Out
You Can Feel The Rain Fill In
Can You Feel The Scars That Push Out
That Spans Across The Space

 

It Cut So Deep You Can't Erase
Trying To Not Make It Show
Trying To Not Be Scared
But How Am I Going To Make It

 

My Soul Will Not Crushed
Yes I've Got Broken Wings
And When I'm On My Way Down
And I'm Losing All Hope
Just Grab Me By The Arms
And Rest Me Upon The Hug

 

I've Been Crushed And I've Been Saved
Walking Around This Earth
I Know I Can't Erase The Things I've Done
I Know I Can Make The Best Of This
I Will  Stand My Ground And I'll Get Back Up
But I Still Can't Find A Way

 

Tell Me What I've Done
Write It All Down
Show Me The Mistakes
I'll Never Give Up
You Gave Me A Promise
I Won't Give Up

 

I Know I'm Tired
And I Can't Stand
But Time Will Heal My Soul
These Scars Can't Stop Me For Forever
Because I Will Hold On To This Hope

 

You Gave Me A Promise
You Gave Me The Hope
You Gave Me A Light
You Gave Me Something To Believe
You Called Out To Me
You Reached Out To Me

 

And Even If I'm Closing In
And I'm Losing It
I Will Hold On To You
And I Will Keep Moving Along

In Memories You Live

Once upon a day I lived, but now only memories and air

Question to exist, and left upon a forgotten chair

I fall victim; the very hostage to a fate that isn't fair

 

Into the graveyard of memories, where beautiful things fade and die

and behind the dying oak tree, somewhere is you and I

Beside us inscribed on the tomb is where our promises lie.


Eternal here, is the flowers born from the days

Where I thought it was forever and wasn't just a phase

Years long gone, but your spirit forever stays

 

Under the moon lays the possibilities of love

But in a tree, lies a poor and injured dove

Blind to see the world, and the beautiful stars above

The Gypsy Side Of Me

Folder: 
Soul Poetry

 

I have a nomad, vagabond spirit,

And a silver strewn gypsy soul.

I'm finally ready to finally flee,

Finally ready, to finally go.

 

Caged overly, much too long,

Behind tainted and shattered glass,

I've gotten strong and broken out,

Away from that hurtful, painful past.

 

Now I'll just wander all around,

Without even much of a care,

But never, ever, ever in time,

Will I ever, go back to there.

 

I'll find my own beautiful path,

Then even blaze a few dozen more,

I'll tie purple silks, all up in my hair,

As on gauzy wings, I now shall soar.

 

See, its not that I'm such a rebel,

Just seeking all, he'd never let me be.

I'm on a journey of new life and living,

With this yearning, gypsy side of me.

A Lesser Extreme

.

 

 

The brittle bristles 

On her scrubbing brush 

Are cracked and worn,

Her polishing cloth frayed,

And in between

Each piece of silver she shines,

Blossoms a dream

From the musty cellars

Of million dollar mansions.

 

Dusting off family portraits

Framed in 24 karat carvings,

She wonders about a friend

That was lost in her long days,

Ended in between pages 

Of the romance novels

Read but never lived,

Felt but never touched.

 

Across the room

An envelope leans against 

A hand painted china doll,

Inscribed with her name,

Inside it, a worthy note 

To satisfy a hard day's work,

But that is not why she comes.

 

As she locks the door,

And sets the alarm,

Her cellphone rings,

And she hears the same sound

She has heard every night for 27 years,

The voice of he, whom she will never meet.

 

With a soulful smile,

She perches herself regently

On the ripped vinyl seat of the cab.

She nods to the cabby peering into the rear view mirror.

She powders her nose.

 

Another day,

Another cab ride,

Another walk up the stairs

To her one bedroom flat.

 

She drops a shiny quarter 

In the rusted can of the man sitting 

On the stoop next to a sign that reads "will live for nothing".

 

She runs fresh water over her houseplants,

Eats, showers, and reads.

 

And says good morning to the night.

The Feelings Left In Life

I'm Still Holding On
But I'm Breaking Inside Into Pieces
I Feel Like I'm Going No Where In Life
Thats Why I'm Still Praying
But I Don't Know What Else To Do
I Don't Know What Else To Say

 

I'm Not Even Sure I Can Even Smile
Cause In A Entire Life Time Worth Of Happiness
I Don't Have The Slightest Memory
Of Any Of What I Could Have In A Life Time

 

All That I'm After I Just A Happiness Moment Of Laughter
All That Matters Seems To Fade Away
Its Not In Sight, It's Not In Grasp
But I Feel Like I've Lost Something More Than My Mind

 

More Than I Could Have Ever Wanted In My Life
Cause It Feels Like It Drifted Away
I Used To Want More Than Smiles
But Feels Like It Aint Worth Anymore
It Was All Wandering In My Dreams
Even Though Its The Past Life
I Can't Even Find The Words Left To Say
