Do we let culture, tradition decide our fate?
Whom we love; whom we fear.

The belief from misunderstandings,
devotion to the lack of education—
steer the wheel.

Is your influence thought through?
Is it within reason; is it justified?

We fear what we do not comprehend.
It is decided, but not by us—
others steer the wheel.

The master of the home, of your kingdom, come.
Is, will and will always remain to be: You.

subsequently to
what's been done—faults after faults,
the guilt is heighten
our love
makes us meet
again and again
holding flowers
in our hands
over time
we haven't changed
still
seek each other
need each other
our face
now deeply lined
are mirrors
they haven't found
any fault to reflect
so
our love is pure
and desires flawless
enough to last
all eternity
the flowers we hold
will never wither
the face we see
will never fade
Poetic Eagle Dec 3
Why cant we all be like stars
They shine despite the darkness
That surrounds them
Light always overpower darkness
Always believe
Benji Dec 2
So many elements
Make up this man
Let me open up
Show all that I am
Take a little insecurity
Fill these eyes with some tears
Take a little fear
Sew them into this skin
If I'm gonna show it all
I need to let you see everything

Open up this heart
Cut it in half
Let all the love bleed out
Just so they have no doubt
All I've got is yours too hold
Take these hands filled with hope
Come inside my mind
Where you'll see all these
Dreams on display
Sometimes this Imagination
Runs away

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

Take a little anxiety
A pinch of crazy
Pour a little jealousy
Over me
All these little things
With some humanization
That adds up to this creation
I'll walk this world
Arms wide open
You'll see every inch of me
Nothing to hide
No disguise
No agenda in my eyes

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me.

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

Take a little self-control
Inject some humour into my soul
Drink down some bravery
Fill my warrior spirit
through a dance
Filled with fire
Fill these eyes with starlit skies
Feel power building inside
A determination to be great
Finding a way to new heights
Through freedom, Through flight
This is so raw, This is so real
You're inheriting all that I feel.

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me.

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

Honesty soaks into my skin
Revealing truths
Layed out before your sights
And it comes as no surprise
All of these acts that take the stage
Are giving there all
No time for questioning
No time for dismay
Only came to display all it is they can be
With each opportunity that came there way
With belief in their talents shown
Audiences left with their minds blown

There is passion
There is inspiration
There is motivation
There is faith
Stitched into the fabric of my being
Strength and hope, open your eyes
And you will see
All these things make up you and me

Sprinkle some hurt
To fill the drive
There's a little hate hidden inside
Kept in the dark corners of our mind
But I choose love, that is where I side
Opinions could fly out from these lips
But that would be counterproductive
I'm just trying to be me
The best I can be
I'm just trying to see
A world in which I can exist
And be proud of all I've accomplished.

In comfortable manipulation,
The awful painful truth hidden away.
Choosing the numbness of fabrication
O’er trauma in believing what they say.

In the morning my comfort comes from lies,
By nightfall pain comes from the deception.
The calm on which this trusting heart relies,
Crumbles now beneath this cracked reflection.

I yearn for comfort from the painful truth!
I shall tolerate no excuse to live!
Give me no more naïveté from youth!
I prefer the hurt honesty will give.

Painful truth is better than comfort’s lies.
This fact hurts more than I could realize.

Rocking your head back and forth
Disbelieving faces stare
As you cry for mercy
Quietly going insane

Dropped through the hole
Feeling nothing at all
As you saw what the world could be
Reality and fantasy kaleidoscoping

When you awoke--
The brightness was gone
Vanished from your mind
And your ideas seemed inconceivable
--to the others

Oh, the others
The disbelievers
The skeptics
The ones that refused to open their mind

Possibility spreads like a tree from a single root
But they are unable to see it
Instead, they dismiss you
Send you to the sanitarium
Where your screams of madness can be heard
Even today

You walked me through the drakness your hand in mine, and protected me from the devil, let your light shine.
Lord you have saved me, took me in as your child, and now with my faith i have reconciled.
Your arms of comfort always around, and i am finally safe and sound.
You have never been less than what is more; you are more than what we deserve, more than what we ask for.
I am blessed to be accepted by you our ***, even though i am heavily flawed.
For even if one is a sinner, your strength is always within her.
And for that i humble myself before you my lord, you're the purest treasure humans can afford.
And finally I sit hands together eyes shut, asking you to do what humans cannot.
Forgive me and my friends for our oblivion , and take us in into your heavenly kingdom
AMEN
There's something else going on,
the Thing that does not make sense,
that all people experience.
All of us deny it is real.
What is it?
Where?

THERE ARE TWO GODS IN HEAVEN!

"...there are two gods in heaven."

And one of them,
is
Us

All the same day after day
nothing changed In any
way everything just as
before but for the deathly
silence that falls around
me now

Do find It so difficult day
after day nothing changed
only I can't get used you
not being here with me
knowing I'll never see your
face or touch your
hand

Day after day nothing changed
It's not like a break up there's
always chance to get together
again or at least see each other
passing whilst walking In the
street

Day after day nothing changed
but for the fact, you've
gone from this life no coming
back ever again, your time
done and with It our life
together

Day after day nothing changed
apart from Its is said If we are
lucky to reach Heaven we will
have a ready-made partner
If can't have my own good lady
back, all I can say Is Heaven


"FORGET ABOUT IT"
If I live an after llife without my wife but as some religious peoples believe s ready-made partner forget about It
