No day is different from the next,
Every day is the same,
Agony, misery and pain,
But no one knows it but me,
Others look and still can’t see,
The suffering that hunts me
the cloud that drowns all
The isolation that keeps me astray
From others who want me to be OK
And I want to be OK,
But the blues seem to be here to stay,

What comes from the heart,
goes to the heart.
Every word uttered and
every thought, thought.
It always ends where it starts.
Every piece given,
is always replenished.
Like water to a river,
Love flows through our veins,
yet still remains.

These lies are real,
They live on
While the truth is killed,
Murdered right in front of us
In freedom we trust
Addicted to the game,
You can’t get enough,
Stab yo brother in the back
To feed your lust,
Everyone’s an enemy,
We’re all addicts
Looking for a fix
Doped on fiction
We’re all high
Cause ignorance is bliss,
It feels good ...

Ever notice how the grateful are always happy?
Even through a storm,
they’re smile never dampens.
The ungrateful, however, are never happy.
While swimming in a sea of abundance,
they drown wanting.

How revealing is it to discover a true friend?
Or to discover the one that pretends?
Choose carefully those you hang around,
You never know what lurks beneath a smile,
Trust but verify,
the backstabber always has a disguise,
Plotting and scheming hoping you’d fall for the lies,
Grinning away as he showers
you with words made of knives,
Always think twice,...

And I’m afraid there’s no future for me
Of all the games I’ve played in life, after all the sacrifice,
Nothing seems to turn out right,
Is it the player or the game to blame
For this losing streak that’s driving me insane?
And can’t see the forest for the trees,
And I’m afraid there's no future for me

People these days treat sin better than their very own kin,
we make an enemy of our friends.
Night is day and day is night, what was wrong,
Is now right, the truth is ugly and lies hold
Beauty, slavery is freedom, ignorance is smart, thinking
Is dangerous, mindlessness is safe, strength is a threat, being
Weak is strong, we lose to win and win to lose, we’re just

Is it me or is it you,
that hates the fact,
that I’m not you?
If it’s me, why do I
look in the mirror wishing,
I was you?
If it’s you, why do you
hate me so true,
cause I’m not like you?
It’s not me!
I now realize why you hate me.
It’s because you hate you,
for love in your heart you never knew,
cause if you had, you’d accept

Over the years I’ve grown,
a new set of eyes.
Clearer and sharper
to my surprise.
Everything looks different than I
My innocent eyes never recognized
the guilt nor the ugly that
shroud in the hearts of many.
My wise eyes reveals
an image of reality that even those
with open eyes fail to see.
What a tragedy, when a man’s

Our stories are puzzle pieces
to the spirit of life.
but not dissimilar in significance,
when positioned precisely,
a picturesque image of humanity.
Unveiling the meaning of life,
one story at a time.

Freedom carries with it
a burden heavier than bondage,
as a slave endeavors to bear
the obligation of Liberty’s burden,
the Free has already this burden,
endeavoring the strength to endure such weight,
so that his freedom might not be relinquished.

Bottled emotions are heavy,
the weight can keep your mind unsteady.
you stand the chance of tipping over.
those emotions will spell over,
load off your shoulders,
and peace of mind
your soul will soon discover.

Your thoughts are valued, but
your feelings are priceless.
As your mind is monetized,
your soul is worth its weight in gold.

We’re all connected.
We can feel the emotions of others
as if the emotion was that of our own.
And of course we feel our own emotions.
Emotions aren’t unique to an individual-
they are universal.
Yet we don’t choose our
very own emotions.
Through life experiences,
emotions choose us.
Randomly and objectively,
the spirit tugs at our emotional

The words that come from the mind,
write them-though not all.
The words that come from the heart,
recite them, all of them.
Words of the soul express meaning.
Words of the mind are but words, meaningless.
Saturday 22nd June 2019 4:57 pm
Yes, you are the only one,
it is you I want to see
for all eternity,
you give meaning to the air I breathe
it is you that brings out the best in me,
every word I say
every song I sing,
you are the only light in my darkness,
the seed that keeps me growing,
sprouting patiently and ever so gently.

When you loved me
I never heard it.
When you hated me,
it was loud and clear.
The words I needed to hear most
were never spoken,
But the words that hurt most,
were never unspoken.

I fake a smile everyday to make pay,
Trying to find my way
In between a rock and a hard place,
Looking for a better day,
But the sun doesn't shine my way
I’m losing my identity
On a mission to find me
Someone help me please
I’m crying helplessly
I have no dreams
It’s hard to sleep with no identity
Looking at a reflection of a stranger in the mirror
I’m losing my...
Friday 21st June 2019 5:08 pm
Am I supposed to be here or there?
No matter where I go
I seem to be going nowhere
I need help.
Does anyone care?
Who has love to spare?
This one is for the lost souls everywhere.
Friday 21st June 2019 1:09 pm
As I look around
My eyes water
Face frowns another
Day to find a reason to smile
Since you've been gone
things haven’t been the same
faded memories filling my brain
All that remains
snow to rain,
sunshine to clouds
The more change,
greater grows the pain
And it’s you to blame
My heart’s grown cold,
no more tendern...

WHY DO YOU WANNA BE THIS WAY?
YOU CAN FREE YOURSELF, BUT YOU CHOOSE TO STAY.
OH, SPIRIT, WHY CLOUD YOURSELF IN
THIS PRISON OF CONFUSION AND DISARRAY?
DON’T YOU KNOW THAT BEING YOU IS THE TRIED AND TRUE?
WHAT A TERRIBLE LIFE TO WASTE?
YOUR DESIRE TO PLEASE YOU DON’T ALIGN WITH YOUR TASTE.
WHAT A FOOL WHO OPTS TO PLAY VICTIM?
WHEN HIS FREEDOM OF FEAR CRAFTS HIS OWN WISDOM.
Thursday 6th June 2019 6:51 pm
I HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED,
GIVEN TO ME,
BY THE SOURCE OF POWER,
WHICH IS THAT OF HE,
INSIDE OF ME
Thursday 6th June 2019 4:59 pm
MOVING IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT
THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MINDS EYE RUNS WILD
OH, WHAT A DELIGHT?
WHAT VIVID PICTURES TO REMEMBER?
THE WILD FANTACY YOU ENVISIONED
A PLEASURE GIVEN TO YOU UNCONDITIONED
GO ON, LEAP INTO THE SEA OF POSSIBILITY
LIFE’S YOUR DECISION
Thursday 6th June 2019 4:58 pm
LIFE BEGS ME TO DARE,
BUT MY AUDACITY TO STARE,
IN ITS GLARE
IS TOO HARD TO BARE,
AS I SIT FEARFUL IN THIS CHAIR,
FEAR OF MYSELF IS THE CAUSE OF MY SORROW,
THE TRUTH IN FRONT OF ME IS A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW,
BUT THINGS WILL BE BRIGHTER TOMORROW,
FOR SERVING MY SOUL TODAY
SHALL SPARE ME WRECKAGE THAT SAILS AT BAY
Thursday 6th June 2019 4:56 pm
Love, the source of your existence,
seeded in the heart of humanity, from
distance to distance, it's persistent,
it has no condition, only that you'd listen
to the feelings of aww
that begs you to embrace the religion of love
as your decision.

As I recharge my soul, awaiting to be whole,
I gaze at the pond for which has been gifted,
my spirit now uplifted,
what a blessing it is to be so lifted?
lifted above the fray, ready to embrance the posibilities of today.
