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

Discern

Folder: 
Promts I Completed

Fast paced words that recount our love in anger
And in that anger
I find the tiniest bit of melancholy to call my own
Since then stripped of an emotional state

 

To escape your feelings
As well as mine
Which you’ve seemed to help yourself to
I soar to the color of the sky
And the sound of crashing and ocean depths

 

Left in silence that takes away the anger
I hurl myself towards safety
Away from the cruel clutches of you

 

But as I sit
My caprice takes me
With such certainty I felt
That this ocean blue I felt I relate to
Has yet to sooth me


And with every time I run to my azure
From your displeasure
I have to come back
Such as the squawking gulls overhead
Must come back to land

 

With your sustenance
You sustain my being

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This poem doesn't really have much of a format.

And I guess it doesn't make much sense either.

The Man and the Ocean

It is always in the ceaseless motion
And it was exactly the one, who had it perfectly done!
His name was the powerful ocean
With joy he supported the plan.

 

We live as we’ve lived and the question of how?
The nature suddenly did us allow,
To possess and to use such a valuable gift
From whom we’ve been fed, and all wisdom conceived.
The questions we’ve had, and still have them now!

 

You stood on the bridge of this life
With the wonderful rooted idea…
And the doubts which have been left in the rear
Couldn’t reach your unstoppable drive.

 

For the crafts you’ve been gifted
Nothing seemed to exist,
To create any mist,
Not to let your success to be lifted.

 

From there, onwards, you went far from earth to the sky,
Like the birds you’ve got wonderful wings,
Like these birds you have finally learned how to fly.
And you rose far above other beings!

 

With the wonder you went, with the wonder you go
Working hard on these new revelations…
And they stand now revealed by the man, in the row,
Leading us to the other dimensions!

 

What’s the next in this ceaseless motion?
Can we have it all perfectly done?
And we hope, that the powerful ocean
Still with joy will support our plan!

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

Star Child

Are you a star child? 

 Can you make the flowers bloom 
with a wave of your hand?
Do diamonds wonder what it would be like
 to be you?
Do your words linger long
 like waves, 
made to lap the beaches velvet shore
 and rock in its poetic ebb?
Does your gravity pull the 
Moon
Earth
Stars 
Down
 into the infinite orbit of your eyes; 
and when welling a tear,
could they wash away the sea?

Knowing

Knowing  is a relative term..

   Ask the ocean why.
   Ask the Ocean what it sees or knows...
   and sit with pen-in-hand 
   and write .
 
(she sighs)
Its too deep......to vast .....
    infinate salt grain time capsules
    made prisoner by ink-stained  paper?
 
"Surely I  have gone mad"
       (laughter)
    - Can the ocean know?
"It has spoke to me"
 
It speaks to everyone
 
"I stood on the edge of the beach"
      -it draws you in man
          -im tellin' you it does....
 
Her eyes never beheld it-
 
Miles of white sand
the pier.
the clouds.
The voice of the ocean.
 
Its an old mans voice..Low and Smooth
    It says "never forget"
      and tells of Pirate Death
    and message bottles
      Secret pleasures that
    cause sunken treasures and 
      fears that stain the shore.
 
The place I want to be scattered.
