Appearances are often deceptive
Words take colour from context
Context that appears
Behind the curtain
Conspiracies are hatched
Their deeds
To the eyes appear decent
They're innocent
There's no evidence
Appearances are often deceptive
Words take colour from context
Context that appears
Half truths, half lies
Most people live life
Tears smiles
Smiles tears
Lions and crocodiles here
Appearances are often deceptive
Words take colour from context
Context that appears
Words are lies
If adverse truth you identify
Otherwise face value
You rely
Deeds are truths
Until adverse intentions
You don't identify
Appearances are often deceptive

It's important "appear to be" than "to be". For example, you shouldn't only be honest, but appear to be honest as well. Otherwise, you know ...
The scent
In the air
Was rare
Who takes
My care
You kept open
Your eyes
And a tab
From the sky
For you believe
Someone is in my life
Your belief
Isn't blind
You left me behind
The scent
In the air
Was rare
Justified scare
Justified belief
There's someone
In my life indeed
Your belief
Justified True Belief!
Predetermined, predestined
Every existence, occurrence, state
Otherwise there's no God
Lawlessness would do frauds
Everything lawfully wrought
Evidence of God
Complexities of Nature
Limited intellect
Inability to comprehend
Make us ignorant
And our ignorance
Gives birth to chance
Predetermined, predestined
Every existence, occurrence, state
Determined by His Will
He bestowed us intellect and will
We excercise these at His Will
Predetermined His Will
For Him past, present, future merge
He is the Will
Cut the limbs
off a boundary

of trees,
and the police come running.

He was more supported--
there was evidence--

twisted branches
on the ground--

video of it
in action.

It took three days
to go from comfort

to sorrow--
she who freed me

also made me
a ghost.

My i

blood on all
my four walls.

I'm still
the only one

who sees red.
His wife doesn't seem to care.

She can always deny

and stick her head
in another book.
I see you behind clouds grey
The beaming sunshine after a storm
Evidence of beauty in tragedy

I see you in glistening oceans
Unsure of the waters awaiting past horizon
Evidence of beauty in uncertainty

I see you in dancing fields
The swaying of grass to the perennial hum of the wind
Evidence of beauty in tranquil

I see you in a tight hug
The comfort it offers
Evidence of beauty in safety

I see you in every little thing
Because people believe what they want to believe
People see what they ought to see

And I believe that I see you in all the beautiful things —
Evidence of love so pure.

I hope you do, too
If you could just see me too.

Days may package themselves in lessons
learned long before
any hearing ear may think these words
as thoughts a reader hears aloud,
not tremble and bow, but

truth has a voice.
No lie can hide the echo, that has always
been key, qi, chi

cheeky. Cheapshot bullseye.
Wanna see it again.

Been there, done that.
You remember, it was your idea, but you
let it go.
Say it if you wish you could, life's been really good, so far.
“Here’s the contract,

sign the line
with your codes
don’t forget the
shared collateral

Keep it clean

there’s a spot
between the Eyes
where the feeds
can’t see

Make it petty

grab the dirt
and his wallet
we’ll call it
‘botched robbery’

He was ****

tried to show
what we said
at the 'Yard
last summer”

… I forgot the wallet.
for The Convo Couch

they have empirically evidenced
      a spectral existence within
          computer imagery of
                small glowing
                      ~  o  ~


if i found myself in the middle of
these things as they bank off the
walls and nudge against my arm–
batting their lil' eyes at me,

it would likewise illicit from me
the perception of a largely
innocuous event,


shadow of
a skeletal hand
appearing to reach
for my shoulder from
the opening of a doorway
within the steady limitations of
a traditional negative photograph–

would most certainly
pull me into

Disturbance - Rant

in the depth of today's disturbance, there is an escape
the overwhelming evidence is in the art of discovery
learning how wrong or how right you are by the intoxicating evidence
evidence, that both sides seem to have and believe
that my friends is where a disturbance dwells
in the mirror, you will greet the only someone that can change the outcome...

happy holidays and may the image in the mirror be the one you expect

Who do you see in the Mirror?

On a pauper application
God asked him to lead evidence
You are omnipresent
You are omniscient
Still You ask for evidence
In matters of justice
Personal knowledge immaterial
To be impartial in public eyes
For there to be no hue and cry
You will have to lead evidence
It's a question of My reputation
There's a change in policy decision
Hitherto I did justice from personal knowledge
They say I punish them for nothing
They always righteous
Others devilish
People losing faith in Me
Mr. Justices are called lords
They say they have full faith in them
