Tells The Tale
The older I get
The more I regret
Not being 25 anymore
Some look upon their pastimes
With drugs and fine wines
And with memories that they abhor
But some of us feel
As though those times were real
And now reminisce and laugh all the more
A poem about no regrets
Sometimes in fields aside long dark highways
Often times in abandoned hills with unkept grass overgrown
We passed the bowl of demons amongst ourselves
And held them high before reaching our mouths
And said curse be the day, let it always be night!
We weren't witches
We weren't gouls
Just average kids
Breaking all the rules
You see the big picture
And you rush in
You paint the road you walk on
You wear Your grin
You observe the blue sky
But the beauties inside
Your heart can love all that you touch
And we love it oh so much
You shrug off the compliments
Your humility shine through
People observe the painting process
Wonder what it’s like
To have talent like you
He promised you the sky
But all he did was make you cry
I guess your raindrops turned to tears
He said he was a nice guy
But all he did was lie
And played upon all your fears
So here you are
Not near or far
I suppose you’re looking for some comfort
But I can’t be
That guy that you seek
Cause what he did to you you did to me
We never heard of each other
Till we found you in the field
We all talked for a while
And then disappeared
I never forgot you
And I wouldn't have let go
But sometimes souls grow old
And now it's gone
We said goodbye
Without a word
We said it with our eyes
One I wrote back in 98 about leaving friendships behind
All the wars that have ever been
Under the sun, every invention
Every beach ever proclaimed
Boil down to two choices of alternative things...
a Democrat or a Republican, a Big Mac or Whopper, a Lincoln or a Cadillac, A Catholic or Protestant.
We feel we have many options but they are the ones with choice.
It has all added up to nothing.
Her conversation runs strong but soon it’s not long
Before all of it falls straight into the pit
Her eyes give her away from a past of slow decay
And for good reasons she feels all of this pain
Don’t regret too much sister
Just enough to keep you in line
You shall be forgiven
Soon enough with some time
I have something hiding
Behind my teary eyes
My tongue is twisted
From speaking all these lies
My head is now shining
From loosing all my grey
And I can’t seem to shake
The nakedness of the day
My head is aching
for a peace of mind
My hands grow weary
For the answer they’ll never find
All of this pleasure
Surely by sunrise, we will be poor
The thief comes At midnight
Crouching at our door
While our ears listen to Sweet delight
Our eyes bask in fluorescent lights
Our ears have music playing loud
We boast when we walk proud
She took my mind off of what was in front of me
Her hair was flowing with the radiant sun So full of beauty
Her legs strutted down the ave with a gallop no one could tame
Oh hear the seduction in her throaty voice when she told me her name
Her eyes were a warm autumn brown
Her thighs were strong from walking the town
Her neck was long and it came out from her coat
Her arms were thin and long wearing gloves satin soaked
She was my princess for a moment in time
Wonder where she was headed... who could call her mine?
After getting out of school
And believing the teachers words
I throughly believed
Heaven could be worked for
I took it like a drug
And envied all of you
But all it got me was
A DOWNWARD POINT OF VIEW
Downward point of view Depression Anxiety
I wish I could take control
And hand the cities' keys to the troll
That lives down beneath the bridge
That came home from work last night exhausted
If I had my *** of gold
I would give it to the men of old
Not the strong young men that are not in need
But to the elderly
I only wish to make this playing field level
If all the men were for once equal
And all men saught after each others wellfare
Yes, if I can have but one wish
I've been alone even in the company of others
Maybe it will always be so
My heartbeat echoes beyond me
I hear yours as well
Yet mine still beats alone
Alone it speaks
And desperate to share the load of my mind
But I do not wish my burden on anyone
A sacrificial soldier for an army of one
How can it weep asking for relief?
When it cannot see it's making a martyr of me
What can end this lonesome misery?
This situation has become my identity
I can have all the friends in the world
And a family
A partner to be with
But always with this quietness
I’ve been this way since I can remember
It’s the only thing that is still with me
Listen my friend,
This is the dream I dreamed last night after visiting the ruins of the Ancient Sumerians
I stood before an aweful being-A somber faced man/bird
He turned his face towards me and lead me to the temple of Akala-
The queen of darkenss
The house to which all who enter never returns...
Down the road from which there is no coming back
There is the house in which it's people sit in darkness
Dust is their food... Clay is their meat...
They are clothed like birds.
Their wings for covering their bodies
They see no light
They sit in darkness
I entered the house of dust...
I saw the kings of the earth
Their crowns put away for ever
All of the Rulers and Princes-All of whom once war Kingly crowns and ruled the world as in the days of old...
But now, they who stood in the place of the Gods now stand like servants
In the House Of Dust were High Priests of the incantation and ******
And there was the Queen of the Underworld
She who keeps the books of the dead...
She raised her head
She saw me and spoke...
Who has brought this one here?
Then I awoke... like a man drained of blood who wonders alone in a waste.
I didnt write this. I found it, edited it and added some. I thought it was an interesting write.
It can make a man do something good
It can make a man do something bad
All of us know it
But no one says it
Why do we hide it?
Why do we fight it?
We agree to this secret
and we don't care about it
But the truth is out there
Waiting to be seen
Do we tell lies?
Our infinite fears?
Are we afraid
To expose true evil?
In the face of the light
We close our eyes
In the pressure
And in the ease of ignorance
We choose to forgo
The human in ourselves
Where did you go last night?
When the fire burned bright.
And the sky was dark.
Was he everything you thought he’d be
Did he hold your hand when you couldn’t see?
You left me..,
So Hold onto the memory
Because now your left alone and empty
And We’re both fading away
Open your eyes
Look to the sky
To the sunlight of the day
Your life won’t end
It’s just about to begin
A brand new way
It’s all in your head.
These things they said
Emotions are dealt
A wound is felt
And my heart takes control
To laugh at what we think we know
It’s all in our heads...
Trust me, all in our heads.
Don’t give me any of your idols of stone
I don’t want your philosophies that drone
You can’t apply this stuff you hold so dear
Just take off those earrings and lend me your ear
I’m not in the mood for your confession
I’m not hearing your transgression
I smell fear in you...
Don’t you know there’s forgiveness and truth?
He said it and the words don’t pass away
Know it and love it we got a brand new day
So let’s get together without fear
Love one another all year
That’s what it is all about
The see saw of emotions are all in your head!
Please feel free to add
I can feel the g-od’s of my ancestors calling me
From the horizon and finality
They are silent
They seek no form in stone from us
For stone is corrupt able and they are not
It’s an abomination
They despised the way the humans disgraced their form
Though they are kind about it
Sending thieves, sending wind and sand they remove this idol
And blessing us with things new
I ask what do they seek....?
I ask how do we please?
But I realize they have all things in their ability
The Bible warns they seek no sacrifice
Why would they give a live birth for a corpse in return?
They made the life to live...
There was might in those days of old.
120 years of life for a man.
There shall be might in these times if we take it easy and breathe
The bounty of a persons heart shall share truths of his long days here to be inherited by those who have ears
Even our faulty sciences tell us matter and energy never are destroyed
But I blindly look to how things are created
My own fear lets me not see
For man was meant to be upright in mind and to only see the things given to his own blinking eye
Imagination wander not into the lust of lusts, the evil eye upon the creators possessions
Where does this worship of many g-od’s fall into Christianity?
The lord surely showed his might when he said have no g-d’s before me!
Then these idols fall fail once again to the wind
They fall prey to thieves’ lusts for gold, the wind and the sands which corrupt.
I still search outside
They search for worship
The Bible says things which never pass away
It is a hard book of scrolls in which the reader seeks life and finds it not for in them it says you shall seek life in them
Oh, how I wish I new the living, perfect and true god.
The first god of worlds
Oh how my blindness aids me though...
Less stripes for the person that did not know his will or even him
I want to work works...
I want to be godly
However the book reminds me I cannot be saved according to works
Jesus said we are all gods
This statement frightens me
But it is the beginning of wisdom for the fear of god results in knowledge
I look to the earth for his fingerprint
I have tools which show me the world
I see a tree growing through the dead leaves in search of drink and sun
It springs up
It shoots down
It displays leaves
It hides roots
It breathes and holds and bends in the wind
It throws its seed to land in a better place from where it originated
It churns the earth and keeps it alive at its trunk
Only patient eyes can see
I see the sand lands we call desert
These were once alive but are now crushed rock
How can we reverse this dire situation?
What if we lived here?
Shall we pray for manna without a wince?
Without a doubt?
Just allow it to fall from heaven for gather?
These thing were
These truths are history
All I know is that he provides but man corrupts
Question Answers Confusion Fear Frustration
Archie it’s been a while since you passed
I still remember you making me laugh
So many tears from people at your wake
I had no idea you reached so many
When we were young we talked about drugs
Like little kids we bragged about what the other discovered
****** took you like a thief in the night
But on the outside your life appeared alright
I didn’t know your addiction got that far
I don’t want to know anymore
The pain is what I’m fleeing
The bad addiction I choose to ignore
You taught English in a college of study
But somewhere your own thinking got muddy
You were a good cousin and buddy
You were red and ruddy
Still thinking of you cousin
At the white wall
With total total total regret on her mind
To lift her own spirits
But he just sits there
With another upon his mind
She hates herself and refuses to know it
With torment she learns to not mind
She becomes insane from the pain but won’t loose control
She receives perfection
Something she used to measured herself against
And accepts all her previous actions
With humility, grace and beauty
She becomes strong
Yet doesn’t judge others
And reveals all that she learned
And draws many to a noble cause
And becomes his bride without flaws!
They come around...
With fire 🔥 upon poles and staffs of wood
Making way for their own madness and darkness
Trying to assume no identity
But they knew their premeditation
Showing teeth 🦷
An evil grin and stare like demons which possess them
Feeling their way through the night with an evil chant.....
Looking for someone to blame!
Their bellies bellow out broken law
No, never seeing...
They are blind in more than one way.
For they are blind to their curse
And therefore their own destruction
God cries out !
But they turn from him in every phrase and warning
Accusing all that surrounds them
Becoming upside down in their 🩸 lust
They trample the heart inside their own souls and compel and approve the hunt
Producing thorns and thistles
They are dead men
And when they perish
They shall produce thorns and thistles
Just some rambling
He is a lighted path in a dark night
He is a refuge for those seeking might
He heals the sick and blesses the poor
He is an open door
Now I have many sisters and brothers
We have a sinless god for a father
Whom we worship with a full heart.
He lift us up , when we walk faithfully.
He glides us while we fly high above.
He strengthen us when we are exausted.
For our God been around since forever .
He is the Great I Am, and he will be always.
Guiding us through the darkness right here.
Leading us by our hand, for always he shall.
Edward and Jesse’s poem
I’m embarking on a journey I failed so many times
This one is not of roads and lines
I once tried this calling as a younger man
But now that I’m old I feel that success is something that I can.
I was called a natural and blessed with this gift
Many warned me not to meddle with this
But I’m not here to follow any human crowd
Sometimes you gotta make yourself proud
So I’m embarking on a journey I failed so many times
To love god
Is to love his son
And to love your neighbor
Is to love the god and son in him or her
We are brethren for we have one father
For it is a commandment added to the ten already
It is hard with transgressions of the former ten laws
But his son said show yourself to the priest
We shall remember our transgressions with the rosary
Doing the things from the priests orders after confession
To kneel and sit with the beads
To look up and see him on the cross...
He died for our sins
But his father delivered him to hell
To preach the gospel
And then his father raised him up
The earth shook as the disciples heard and witnessed his rising!
He lives again.
Working invisible miracles everyday
The gospel and his words do not pass
On him let us believe thoroughly brothers and sisters.
We shall see our father again.
I’m torn up inside
Confused but I see the light in a moment
I told her how I feel about getting to know each other better
She doesn’t feel the same way though
Then I felt the darkness
I feel disappointed but I also feel I shouldn’t Pursue her.
No, not yet.
I would feel clingy. I’m not clingy.
Never should I try or strive but her qualities attract me.
She brushes them off like they are nothing but she is a treasure in that moment of light.
I really do think she’s better than the rest.
Clearly she is taken for good reasons and
I wish her the best!
There’s nothing I can do except to hear back from her someday when she is more free.
But what if her heart is broken where she doesn’t want another?
I’m torn... I wish her the best.
I wonder if she will remember me in that time of hurt if it comes.
I wonder if she would look for a friend to comfort her.
I’m here for her.
Sounds lame but I am.
I would like to know her better in her time of hurt so I can pick up her unhappy ness and whirl her up and say let me show you my heart.
It has been waiting for someone like you.
Christ inside is stirring me
Waking me up to a cold reality...
You remind me...
I feel depressed and alone.
Then you say I died for your transgressions.
You make me alive once again.
Like in the days of my youth.
I died along the way.
I inherited a sin from my forefathers.
I become oppressed and depressed in helplessness.
Cold to the touch.
Then you remind me you are my father.
You accept me as a son with open arms.
I warn myself to be brave among the unbelievers.
The entities that don’t recognize your superiority.
You are sinless
You are blameless
You are love
He is a lighted path in a dark night
He is a refuge for those seeking might
He heals the sick and blesses the poor
He is an open door
Now I have many sisters and brothers
We have a sinless god for a father
No longer calling upon a condemning law
I would be dead but my new father lives in me and all men made new!
Let’s celebrate family!
I love you all
I looked for a job in NEW YORK City
Dragged my feet 🦶 to look for my destiny
Oh how I wanted to live in a box 📦 upon another
So I drifted in hope
But no luck came to me in my search
No welcoming arms
So I started home
Beyond the horizon of the buildings
Walking barefoot through tall reefs and high grass
I found my naked feet in hot springs and prehistoric pools of water flowing about
The water tow brought me to illusions and places of loneliness
Walking by myself as a prehistoric man
Swimming through these hot springs teaming with life from forms of years ago
A fish grazed my shin 4 feet below
Now the water gets hotter and moves more quickly bringing me exponentially further from the grass land
I see a serpent glaring at my face
Our eyes 👀 see each other in this whirl pool of fire 🔥 water
He swims toward my legs with the current
He proceeded faster to catch me
I keep thinking of the hot spring
And think these times were never a good time for our ancestors
I wake up
Before his bite
I put my inclined sweating body back
And then again turn on the nightlight
It was only a dream for me this time
I’m glad it’s over but wanted to share... pleasant dreams at the museum
On you’re belly you roam
Out the mouth you foam
Catching your prey
Digesting all Day
When there’s no one
You strike alone
And turn your hunger
To your own kind
To another prey
Biting with premeditation
With your fangs
all the world is your delight
You offend every creature
They spit at your sight
And all you do
Is leave crusty skin
You leave no companion
You live in serpent sin
Let that serpent eat his own kind
I hate snakes
Is a sort of bliss
My thinking about
The sins that were forgiven
Now I am clean
When I believe
About all that was paid
For you and me
Somehow fear and doubt
Crawl in my head and I die again
I wish I could have lived a perfect life without him
One without blemish, spot or iniquity
But I’m discovering that perfection is not the goal
Only to believe in his perfection. Be perfect as I AM perfect.
Let’s get the word out
Let’s show how his world there is no fear
Only believe on him his lonely and scattered children
Let’s be raised with one father and break bread in the kitchen
Careful with that gun
Careful with that spear
It will come back to take you
Then you will live in fear
Do unto others
As you want done to you
Obliterate and take their money?
Is that really what you want to do?
No empathy for the trigger happy
No rest for the corrupted
The thief takes his place
On the cross or behind iron gates
Indeed you will see heaven
As it’s whispered to you
A Great Lake of fire
A destiny of rebuke
He will rule this nation with A rod of Iron
Ensuring everyone is saved
Strict love and obedience
Now the narrow road is paved
You are on a wreckless suicidal path
Chasing after all flesh
It rots your mind and heart
When you covet cash
Drugs, women, fame to get higher
Are all a fools desire
Do what is right to each other
And fear the flames and fire 🔥
I despise weapons
I saw the winter skies locked in your eyes for the first time in seven years
When you cry, do you cry for me?
The tears turn to icicles
I swear I saw it in your face
I thought we were painted in the playing field.
Who knows what I was seeing. It felt so real.
Tell me, what’s on your mind.
The last time I saw you, you seemed concerned.
A wish spoken aloud may be a wish that may be heard.
The snow falls ******* both of us now.
But you brought on the cold.
Those black senseless eyes of yours drives the snow.
Now she’s a faded memory-today’s pain.
Just a fragment of my yesterday’s.
Who would have thought?
She was so cold
Got the clouds around my head
And the grounds caving in
Got no recollection
Of where I’ve been
I have a new world to face
And a cliff to climb
Rise over the mountains and see nothing but sky
Feel freedoms wings pushing me into a new life
Old song I wrot in the 90”s
A one way ticket from her past
A slow ride to nowhere fast
She’s riding the iron lines
Escaping her troubled life
Running away from the price
She feels abused- they didn’t have the right
In her mind the story unfolds
What can I do?
What can I do to bring back those tears?
I hate to say good luck for many years
I hope to do more
I’m better than that!
It’s a fact!
But she continues to die inside.........
Just me and the ocean tide
Such a lonesome time with the earths rainbows and fire
I take my eyes off myself
And I see that the stars do like to shine now and again
So they lend me their helping hand
Their spotlights are blinding my face
Nowhere to walk
We drift through space
Spinning like a drunkard
Reeling like an auroral dream
We should see the light
An old one I wrote back when I wasn’t paying attention in school lol
Dreaming a poem, a lyric to your taste
Intelligent rock in our face
Wailing on those drums you loved
Wonder if you are reflecting on your life from above
You won the crowds favor with every move
A serious face with every groove
In the limelight your brilliance was bold
In the hemispheres your thought were told
The dreamline told a venture tale
Made us remember being young without fail
I wonder if your life was pure with love
I hope god approves your life from above
Thank you for the concert shirt
We all miss you Mr Neil Peart!
It’s three am and the world looks dead
Flashing scenes on blank drape screens reflecting TVs
As I walk down this naked street in the dark
It’s quite vulnerable and charming
To see this neighborhood sleep
When you cry
In the night
Do the stars hear?
Do they know
And do they sew
Your wounds with gold?
No one thrives
When we die
Sooner or later
We all lie
Beneath the flies
And now you’ve gone too
You gone to far
And now you’re gone too
You gone too far
An angel at the gate
With a light halo
He keeps calling
But your ears remain closed
And the desperation grows
There is a chance
God surely knows
Another energy unseen by you
Begging with good intention
Where death is love abounds
I’ve been high
But it let me down after
Wonder if it was worth it
It led to disaster
A warning to all
Don’t let it make you fall
Like it does
Shadows dance on painted walls
See them brush by you in narrow halls
Can’t you see their light is lost
Pick up their broken pieces to turn them off
A shadow danced at the foot of my bed
I can’t get the feeling out of my head
Scared to know about what I said
I smoke cigs and drink coffee like no other man can
I drive real tight with my Chevy the road-my delight
I rock the radio tunes vibrations in my head
I need no sleep no need for bed
Amped up and joyriding
I’m feeling high
And it’s all legal
We nurse from the cosmos
Feeding our souls to thrive
Eating dead things
Wouldn’t seem to jive
We’re spirit with flesh
Coming forth from earth
But there is more there
More of a heavenly work
We can’t institutionalize love
We should just radiate with the sun
And beyond that light
When All the world shows
And all the world knows
Through a grace of heavenly space
We take our rightful place
It wasn’t till late
I realized fate
I didn’t know
I’d need you so
She was a moment in time
A orbiting meteor
Just out of planets reach of her
Oh how gravity won’t know
How I need you so
I thought I needed a trick
To lore you to my lair
To make love
I didn’t need it
It was there
A cold hard stare
Into her eyes
I seen you smile
But now I’m all alone
Waiting for her
I was ignorant and sodish
Didn’t know yet you kept me alive though I was a dog
You kept reviving my mind and heart
You sustained my soul
Now I feel like I am becoming a son
I look forward speaking with you in my soul heart and mind
Little by little you save everyday and night
Like a harlot forgiven I feel empowered
It’s your strength
Some rambling not really poetry
I was in love
And then twice
Certainly one true love
Cannot be right
For I now believe
Love is unconditional
In a new way I came to see
Love surpasses individually
So let’s all lovers lay down
And begin to play the game
Hold on to one another
Without guilt or shame-tonight
Let’s begin this now
Let’s all take part
No time for individuality
Let’s leave a mark
