All pray for sunny rays
But the sunny days have
gone
a--way
lead astray smokey grey just to say
good--bye
Yeah,
I must have blazed a few back in my
Hey--day
But the skies still blue turns a different hue
but only on May--
Days
Well.,
I guess that's the reason why the meaning of life
Or at least for me?
is so
un--substantial even tho some-times we fold
but don't forget_ to line it with hope
Or maybe much so?
that our minds are now frac--
tured
So..
Don't tread on my mi-cro frac--
tions
( As I would often say )
Seeing that mines are both split / in personalities of my current
Reality?
Yo.,
But that's just a very small frac--
shun
in this type of  re--
ac-
            tion
Dealing with feelings of being shunned and or rejected

A closed casket
often proposes
something
Lofty
A High price
or something
Hefty
That's why I opt to favor my
Rights
So therefore
I don't wanna switch to
Lefty
And that's on sight
In light of or inspite of
how the might of my
hands
will be
( wrapped ) with
the Lord's
Blessing's
for when they
Test me
So don't test
ME
Cause I'm not looking
to turn a Right
or a
Left cheek
when it comes to
Heresy
And that's even
if it's
the way that
Me and
Death
meet
For I know that
the Lord
will truly
Prep me
before my breath

Fight the good fight of faith
Erik T Blaze Apr 2022
Sad to say.,
There's a portion of me
that's still feeling like I'm -trapped-
In
Now..
Am I totally lacking the con-fi-dence?
And its not by any typical blow to my
" Ego " or by any
Ac-ci-dent
Taken in and out of context
sorta like the excess of many accents
Feel'n I'm from another
Con-ti-nent
( Yeah ) So I guess you can say.. that my
current  per-so-na-li-ty is quite the
Op-po-site  of
" Freedom's  Plight "               ( books )
That is based on a quote from a ( note* ) that's deceivingly not
" Gift " wrapped
Thinking that I'm not.. wrapped to tight
Out of sight like a  cold - - - swipe
Though my insight in hindsight  seemingly be
Cold- as- Ice
As I'm steady  catching these fades off of  -two- blades
the fall is displayed
/ Artistically /
Perpendicular to the perfect picture
An illustration that I must of-- slipped
Up
All clinched up with both my fist  Up
And now my up side is.. Down
With both my feet above my - head -
Can't seem to place my feet  back on the
- ground -
And when I really think about it?
It has always been ( Me ) against the world
Cause when I turned my back on it?
I was caught lacking while slip'n
Falling back into my old
Skin
But the fault is neither a Black or White
" Thing "
I'm currently talkin bout a mixed.. blend
Just as these thoughts un-hinge to these new
-Sins-
But that's  regrettably.. the time I would hate to lend
while peeling back the fore-
Skin
( Smh )
Now tracing back to the quote.,
Lost in time  like a faded note.. endorsement
Bottled up with.. distortion
Forced to make a choice.. Truth or Dare?
Not- a- Fair
Spin
While currently  not liking how the " Truth "
bends
And that's when.. you are
in--discriminate--ly are shedding light at
both ends.. to possibly ( no end  ) to see an
-End-
And it's all
Pain--stakingly because?
I'm so sick and tired of tying up these loose.. ends
For Justice?
For Justice??
Has not been served
Cause everyday
I feel I'm being black balled systematically
like a.. bow-ling
Pin
But the only difference is between -Me- and
" Them "
is the color of my  Black
Skin
And that's  even when
I choose to go.. qui-et--ly
as I switch.. lanes
Cause at the end of the day?
I would still be.. just another quote and quote  " Black "
Man
Who's humbly living this life the best way that only ( He )
Or should I say?
As only I.. can
Not focusing on the next.. Man
For my only focus now.. is ( Yah ) the God of Heaven
And my bread of choice is  un-leavened
And his eye is truly on the
Spar--row¬†¬†¬†‚ě° ¬†( spare "/" row )
Peep*   the Arrow
And now..
The only pathway I'll take for the means of e-scape
For me?
Is Narrow
( note* ) Notes or thoughts recorded in a note or notebook or books in general. Also, relating to the things we've been taught that may have influenced us in one way or another + or - ( note* ) Could also mean a suicide note or letter that was purposely left behind to be discovered

As the World
turns
I can hear the world
Yearn
They're unruly and desperately
reck-less
seeking for love on ever-
lasting
terms
But they proceed with no concern
they're unable to discern or
learn
Not heeding the many
warnings and dan-
gers
Unaware of the many
forces that lin-
ger
Now as we stand by idly
as we witness
this cruel state of
Ig-nor-ance
We're losing our
Innocence
instead of making sense
of what's
going on
Unconvinced
of the shapes that are
taking form
We're miss-in-
formed
sowing the seeds to breed the
Devil's
Spawn
Provoking violence within the
mindset
of the spiritually blinded
While letting our
Silence
speak the truth
of the spirits that blind
Us
Reminding us
of where we Fail
A rude awakening
outa the
Spell
Snapping outa the
Trance
of being frozen in a
mea-ning-less
stance
For our only chance to
Survive
Is to thrive in our
circumstance
Moving on in advance
observing Truth
Learning to pro-
gress
As we focus in our aims
to Arrest
these
developments of
Carnality
We're pulling down the
Devil's
Faculty
Exposing Principalities
wherever
they
may
Be
Ephesians 6:12-20
Erik T Blaze Jan 2022
Aye Yo
I swear..
That my mind's been spinning
Around and Around
Like my head's literally

On.,
the Ceiling

So you should already know..
That I'm not a big fan of
Windmills or Pinwheels

But my thoughts are mainly
Off., the scene

Man.. I rather stay chill like them
Crimson Trees, so much like
the Breeze

I'm just Chill'n

But it's not a cool feeling just
standing around with both feet on
the ground, while suddenly having this..

Cruel Feeling

That Life
Is  not  a  CRUISE

( Nope )

There's no
Smooth Sailing

But my tendencies are itching
For me to be E-
vasive

But yet trouble and I still met
NEVERTHELESS.. And I could only
guess.. it was because

We were both being
TENACIOUS!!

But in this world where we both live
is really not that
Spacious

Which kinda feels like I'm trapped
within a Dungeon

( Or maybe )

Some kind of creeped out
Basement

But now it's all Eyes on me
( See ) How I got the whole
world peeping and in A-
mazement

But to them, I'm just another
HEAD CASE
As I speak, on what they said
( Like ) Yeah
He's apparently
Off his MEDS!!

Yep..
As I turned to
Face them

That's why I consider them each
to be my enemy now
Because I'm seeing
Three or Four
Hundred more now
And they're all

[[  " RATTLING
           MY  CAGES!! " ]]

And it's so much so
That I just imagine them all
On stone walls..

As being  FACELESS!!

And I've been living and thinking
this way.. ever since

But the suspense is killing me more
( Although ) Vandal be.. my Alias
Which is a cruel art to pitch
But still..

I must  DEFACE THEM!!

So as of now..
I couldn't care less about this mess
that I've been left with
Or should I say
Cursed?

Or better yet..
For the lack of a better word
I've been hit with
the TRUTH

Which was never heard

But right now?
I am not the one to be
Messed with

For I have  PTSD
To the MAX!!

Or either Or

I have just been tagged from
here on and so on and so on
And further more..

As just another
Insane Poet ( slash ) Prophet with a
HIT LIST
I am not a Ceiling Fan ( I am not crazy )
Crimson Trees ( Fall season )
Erik T Blaze Jan 2021
I am
Casting down imaginations
To the pulling down of., strong-holds
Gearing up for the., long term
But from the outside looking in?
May seem bold
or  quite
MAD*
( Well )
Just referring to the thoughts
that I have
that are really not that far- off
while dreaming of.,  REVELATION
No fabrication on my part
As I try to separate the Light
from the Dark
with high hopes and
Aspirations
Which is.. a sen-sational sensation of flying high
as I'm being
           vated
ele-
                  Elevelation
High on
Or something like a planned
Evo-lu-tion that is so
True
Staying true to my elevation in 2020
leading into 2020 one
Now seeing  Dou-ble
Vision
( Although )
Some try to fix it?
But I would beg to differ
Cause it would take.. Twice.. the listen
Care to listen?
Just to see things
Different
And at the same time?
Shuning the carnal mind's version
of seeing  Dou-ble
Vision
May call it.. Twinning
Which is the true definition
of being  Dou-ble
Minded
So to combat this?
I would just never
Mind it ( meaning )
There's no rules or
bars of
Confinement
For no 20 or Eye is missing
from my
INTUITION
Raised suspicions?
Well., Just hoping that you will
tread.. carefully
And stay
Centered
As you enter my center of words
and.. penning
As I write the vision
I'll make it plain and simple
No Subliminals
Or either I'll keep it at minimal
While maintaining the
Visuals
As usual
As I keep on gaining in
WISDOM
Do not follow your heart follow God
MAD* ( CRAZY )
Erik T Blaze Oct 2020
I saw
a shining Light
Shining out
into all
Perpetual  Darkness
It showed
throughout the darkest
of deep
and into the
deepest of  Sleep
where the prevailence
of Evil
Over-shadowed
every soul with
Heaviness
But at that very instance
of light springing forth
that darkness was
Overthrown
and it ruled no more
New life was substained
and the  Victory
proclaimed
in the name
of the Son of God
‚ú®Jesus Christ
The Lord‚ú®
For no longer are
our lives
Over-shadowed
by the shadow of
Death or by
the enemy's
Shadow
For we were once
a people who dwelled
in a Cold dark
Region
But at the sight
of that
Great Light
was the begining
of a
Brand new
Season
And it's for this reason
we are privileged
of the Lord
for now is our time
to Shine
And we should count it
an honor by the praises
of our duty
to reap so freely
of his
Joy Divine
Oh Yes
we've been ordained
The Children of
the Light
So let us hold up
our Lights
and take our stand
And let us make it
our goal
to call every
lost soul
for truly the
Kingdom
of our coming Lord
is at hand
Don't know what year it was exactly when I wrote this
I just know it had to have been about 10 to 12 or more yrs ago
But after all this time I still have it memorized
So I figured.. now was as good a time as any to post this
