Let me show you the other side,
Let me show you the way to see.
There's no reason to hide.
From God, comes abundant mercy.

Let me guide your heavy thoughts,
Let me guide your weary feet.
Don't worry about your secrets,
Through God, you're made complete.

Let me brighten your downcast face,
Let me brighten your clouds daily.
Problems aren't yours to erase,
By God's work, you're made holy.

Let me walk you through the danger,
Let me walk you to a place of safety.
You're not meant to live as a stranger,
Because of God, fullness replaces empty.

Let me carry you through the debris,
Let me carry you when you are done.
The issues of others don't define your story.
Look to God, He'll take your burden.

Let me give you a right perspective,
Let me give you a way to cope.
Depressed thoughts are obstructive.
Thanks to God, you have a wider scope.

Let me lead you to truth.
Let me lead you from the lies.
At first, it seems uncouth,
With God, wisdom you will realize.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm the last thing you want,
When you have lost all of me.
I'm rarely at the front,
You must search if you want to see.

I'm what you need most,
When you've given up.
I'm an idea, a ghost,
When will you wakeup?

Look! The Lamb!
God's thrown down a rope.
Here I am:
My name is Hope!
The personification of Hope.
T.

The end is near
Because everyone seems to be so lonely
The years have passed so slowly
Somebody must show me
That I must believe
But I don't believe in life
I don't believe in love
I don't believe in you.


I will not live without you near me
My love can not fit inside these words
Because it didn't have to be this way
Words will never express anything
The wounds are in my mind.

I am scared to become human again.

This mind has expanded and this Eye has

lifted this world from grey to color.

If you only could read these words and understand

The me that you knew

Has left the view.

I am I N F I N I T E

and I seep into the dirt and the leaves,

pieces of me are in everything and them in me.

I can finally feel it all so much stronger.

I am no longer here,

I am with

The Mother and The Father.
~Always.

Can you carve color like you crave attention,
My eyes are starving,
for a golden glimpsing,
Will we wander or will we surrender,
To the darkness,
Blinding our vision.

Will these wild white words
Garner redemption,
I'm just a poor boy,
from the home of the hits and,
Can we feel like we do on the streets of New Orleans,
Watch your glass and half your portion.

What in this white world changes?
Dust bowls now filled, aren't so dangerous,
But let's Forgo the colors and drink from loving cups,
Give your hugs to a stranger.
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Nawlins Louisiana , home of the hits, and if you’re from outa town, huh ha, welcome to the third world”
RIP Houseman

Why can I not get you too love me so
Why do we pretend at home?
Why do I moan your still around
Pretending with your quit frown.

I'll show you all my emotions
And shuv them down your throat
Until you choke,
But still you pretend too love me
Still we play like little dolls
In a little perfect house
I wonder what would happen
If I gave up this pattern?

Why do we do this silly merry go round,
Why do we pretend you love me
Why do we not  let this pretend  love die
Why do you do this?
Why do you just please me
Please leave me,
Please just leave me alone.

Look up to the sky
From your heart and your mind
To see what is true
To guide you through
-The only thing far is to exist
You can reminisce but don’t live there
The purpose of all life is learning
Over stand that be aware
Once you know the truth, don’t you go and tell no lie
Every life that’s born
Is also, meant to die
-*There’s only one race, of all Gods mankind
And that’s us the Human,
Full of variety by divine design
Times a straight curve abound
Just like ripples of sound
Be cautious in your actions
Cause what goes around, makes it back around
Pursue inclusion, not Exclusion!
Sincere just love, is the solution
For tomorrows without sorrows
Can you feel it down in your bone marrow
Call it Jai, or Allah, or better generic
G O D
Contained within the universe, inside of us
Is spirituality
LOOK UP TO THE SKY, FROM YOUR HEART & YOUR THIRD EYE
AND SEE WHAT IS TRUE, TO GUIDE WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
LOOK UP TO THE SKY, FROM YOUR HEART & YOUR THIRD EYE
AND SEE WHAT IS TRUE, TO GUIDE WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
Now people look around
Work on every single frown
We must find common ground
And we can turn the world around
You gotta Do It Yesterday
Cause tomorrow is too late
This life here is for the living
Its your life you’ve been given
And so the choices that you make
Will either aid us or forsake
Everything the maker built up
Helix DNA, -Space traveler
Third Eye Mantra
As it was told to me, by the Almighty
Open up your third eye
And your heart, so you can see
Ya gotta
LOOK UP TO THE SKY, FROM YOUR HEART & YOUR THIRD EYE
AND SEE WHAT IS TRUE, TO GUIDE WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
LOOK UP TO THE SKY, FROM YOUR HEART & YOUR THIRD EYE
AND SEE WHAT IS TRUE, TO GUIDE WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
To guide what you should do
To see what is true
It’s what God wants for you
It’s what God wants for you

Why did I fight
Why did I bleed

What did you want
What did you need

Why did he suffer
Why did he die

Why did we fight
Why the **** did we try?!
I miss them all

I don’t have time for anymore ******* lies
But the time has come for real, genuine change
Because this dream of America never existed
With this ******* system intact

As our well-bred politicians
Stand on the stage
With false optimism
For the figures of another war

The land of the free?
Who told you that?
They’re your enemy
As they just want another war

My patience is dying
If my people continue dying
For petty crimes and useless ******* lies
Because the time has come

The American Dream has been manufactured
By a set of shallow people
Who will feed it to ya every election
For a well-calculated victory

Time to sweep the game
And vote for a new calling
From these 3rd parties
Instead of limiting to the world of two who are the same

We’ve only got a couple years till
Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security,
Student Debt, Corporate welfare, Welfare
Break the ******* system

We aren’t helpin’ anyone
We’re locking each other
To live off the ******* government
And the money isn’t there to continue this jail cell

But keep on thinking these liberal programs are there to help
But in the end, we’re killing the dollar
In the form of public care
When we need to band together

The land of hypocrisy
Is going to be drowned
Within thirty years
If nobody is screaming
If nobody is screaming
If nobody is screaming…

It’s a terrifying thing The American Dream.
