I know of a girl With small hands That write small letters, But with a mind so wide Like her arms opened For a comforting embrace. Few spoken words at first That ring with cautious clarity Then grows in depth and length. Tiny capillaries that connect To the biggest heart I've heard Whose louder beats echo From where she stays. Little feet which will carry her To a larger place some day. Her name may mean "small," But she's so much more than most of all.
To Ate Pau, thank you for everything in the past year and in our future years to come. I'll see you sooner than we know it.
There in the belly of the city Way down there where it's dark and gritty Lives a very complexe man There in his Window he stands Watching the atrocities that parade down his street He's seen the dealer's and the junkies meet The homeless that set at their feet The thugs that prey on the weak Children abused, made to be meek It plays out every day of the week
He's seen it all He's watched humanity fall It's hard for him to digest On this life's problems his mind rest He knows there's not much that he can do He watches and writes it all down, he's one of the few Sent to bear witness to the inhumanity of man To make us think of where in this life we stand
Yes he is a poet He's watched it all and wrote it He has a big heart Which makes it hard to play his part Of watcher in the tower As those below cower But his calling, well that he is sure of To watch the dying of love To watch the darkness closing in To watch all of man's sin To sound the alarm Of humanity going wrong
He stands at his Window and cries out But no one pays attention to his shouts So he soaks the page with ink and tears Hoping that at last somebody hears
It's hard living in a world where no one cares While your smothered and shallowed by despair Sitting here wondering why I was born into this place Not wanting to be part of this sad human race Where money is the great and powerful Oz It doesn't matter what's the cause I look and see their hearts have grown cold and calloused Everything is so off balanced There is no more unconditional love No loving help from up above We have been abandoned The trumpets have sounded Humanity has been stripped of it's compassion Empathy is in short ration Gone are the ways of old To these values we no longer hold Now it's I'll do for you, if you can do for me That's not the way it's supposed to be But everyone's eyes have been closed Their souls have become thorny and cold We are no longer judged on our thoughts and actions But by how much money we have for the coming attractions For if we don't have enough to pay We become part of the play We are condemned to be the ***** They feed to the machines of war
There was a bird that grew up caged It didn't know it should be enraged It had seen other birds fly Thought to it's self "they are going to die" For from what it had lived and witnessed It thought they must have a sickness To make them fly Way up there in the sky In it's cage it was quite content Never knowing what for, it's wings where ment So it thought the other birds where more than bent
Are you like that little bird Thinking that flying is quiet absurd Are you locked in a cage of your own design Content to live your life so confined Take a closer look and open up your mind
I can feel the monsters skull trying to break out I can feel the snout slowly growing stout I can hear the growls deep and fearful start A crack of all the bones, a moving of the parts Writhing in pain falling to the ground No longer can a human form be found
Why are you braced to run Don't you want to have some fun After all you called it out from me When you made my emotions bleed You was so very **** obstinate Now turn and face the consequence
He licks his lips, he can taste your lies He stares intently into your eyes There is nothing he can't find Nothing can you hide Looking you over He takes a big sniff of your odor He takes your face in his claws To him you must plea, he makes the call Are you worthy of me at all For my Monster won't rip, won't tear He'll simply make you miss what use to be there.
Late last night within my dreams Chasing the wind, it showed me scenes How it carved the mountains steep Made the canyons very deep Showing me cities centuries old Glittering in the sun layerd in gold I watched as the wind carried the sands of time Burying the cities up, it felt like a loss it felt like a crime
I chased the wind so very far, I had to know How do you pick where and how hard to blow
"Child by now you should see I am not in control of me Like every force of nature, we harken to His voice What I do is His choice From the gale winds that tosses ships Or tornados that through communities rip I'm the cool kiss on a soldiers sweaty brow At their feet I spread the sent of death so foul I touch every single blade of grass Flowers nod a greeting as I pass I do my masters bidding without question Every single thing is but a lesson"
"Brace my friend, Your Winds of change are about to be You'll no longer have to go chase me Begging the creator to let it be good just this once To let you taste happiness and joy in abundance Through way to many years I have watched you cried It saddens me all your tears I have dried"
Though you will look but never see You will always fell the essence that is me I was your first breath of life, that first pain filled cry I was there every step, every stumble along your journey, I promise to be your last sigh
