“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

The World I Watched

While I was mesmerized

By the movements of the world

And the little people there

That make it move and pulse

Through me a sickening feeling

That I thought I understood

You were doing greater things

While I just stood there

And did nothing worth anything

Just watched the colored screen

That trapped the little people

On the world that mesmerized me

So there you were…

Creating love and peace

And hope and perfecting

All the little people

And their lovely little minds

Enjoying what you did

To the fullest extent of happiness

Which really had no end

Until you smiled

And saw me watching

And saw I hated what you made

And I wished it all was back

To what it was before

So I could relish in the mess

Of  a broken little world

That had me mesmerized

And laughing at the fumbles

Of the game

Yet then you started reaching

To the deepest part if me

And further on you went

And I couldn’t help but stay

Letting you destroy my heart

To build it up again

Better than it was before

And you know what mesmerized me?

It was the beauty of the soul

I saw inside me

And I was saddened by the world

I saw around me

The life I led in standing back and watching

And pointing out the mistakes of the people

That inhabited the world

That mesmerized me…

To Be Continued at a Later Date…Maybe

I’m a leaf
Floating into the ocean
But I can’t swim to save me
And what’s a life under water
I’m scared to follow the wind

Of Moses

i cover my ears with the palms of my hands

no i don’t want to hear the screaming

i don’t want to see the pain

of my people

i need to hear your voice

but i can’t if i’m deaf to the world

no i can’t if i’m running away

from the suffering

~

you said take the rod in my hand

and remove my sandals

remove my sandals

look the ground on which i stand

is holy

and i’m a sinner

you said from the start i was chosen

to bring freedom

to bring freedom

from the slavery of our choices

i need to lead them

i need to free them

~

here i am with a trail behind me

all the hurting and the helpless

and even further an army led

by a broken promise

i feel the hate of a godless brother

i lose my fear because i know what we have

because i know that we are

your people

~

you said take the rod in my hand

and lift it to you

lift it to you

part the waters and find land

and trust you

to hold them for us

i can say when i reach the end

now i see  you

now i know you

for the one called jehovah

is holy

and i’m a sinner

I Have A Dilemma

I have a few questions that need answering:

What are you supposed to do when someone writes you a letter saying they are hopelessly in love with you?

And what if you don’t want to hurt their feelings because they are really nice, but you just don’t love them back?

AND what can you do when they speak a language that you can understand (sorta), but you don’t really speak?

AND when you don’t want to drag someone else into it as an interpreter?

Now, you see what I mean when I say I have a dilemma?

Come on, I need some advice here.

Clown

Waves are crashing

‘Round my happy

Hold my head up

Lifting higher

Thoughts like ashes

Blown away

Mindless laughter

I’m crazy

Lost the smiles

Lost my funny

Stop all antics

I’m not normal

Circus freaks

Need nobody

Mindless laughter

I’m crazy

The Rope

The air gets clearer near the end

I feel the weight of an ageless hand

I look down and you’re barely there

But from where you are it would hurt to land

Were you to fall

We’ve never fought like this before

I feel we’ve no love anymore

I look down and see you slipping

And I’m afraid I wouldn’t care

Were you to fall

~

I need to know

Would you let go

At the top of the mountain

When I’m out of sight

Would you have the strength

To hold my rope

When I’m only halfway

When I’ve lost all will to fight

I need to know

Would you let go

~

I’ve something pulling at my heart

I feel the guilt of violent thoughts

I’m scared to look what have I done

But there you are still hanging on

Why won’t you fall

The sun is setting on our fantasies

Are we meant to part as enemies

My arms are shaking my tears like ice

Consider my desires as casualties

Were you to fall

~

I need to know

Would you let go

At the top of the mountain

When I’m out of sight

Would you have the strength

To hold my rope

When I’m only halfway

When I’ve lost all will to fight

I need to know

Would you let go

~

You look above like you know what I’m thinking

I see your eyes and the fear inside them

I know not what drove me to this

I am so sickened by me

Answer me before I do it

It makes no difference to me

~

I just need to know

Would you let go

At the top of the mountain

When I’m out of sight

Would you have the strength

To hold my rope

When I’m only halfway

When I’ve lost all will to fight

I need to know

Would you let go

~

I need to know

Would you let go?

Dear Little Heart

This is a song I wrote. I must be tired.

Dear little girl

I’m always forgetting I’m not you

You just don’t belong in this big world like you used to

And this little girl never had the life she wanted

But you can’t go back into the past to change the present

To change the future

Dear little love

I’m sorry for hiding

Everywhere I go they all can see I’m still running

This little love is all I’ve got and all I’m keeping

So when I die nobody’s hurt and it is perfect

But what is perfect?

Dear little heart

I’m never breaking you again

It just seems that’s all you’re meant to ever do

Yes, dear little heart, locked up and threw away the key

So no one can enter, not even me

Nobody

Dear little life

I thought of taking

But I know that it would solve nothing

Because our little lives could never reach perfection

And you can’t go back into the past to change the present

There’s always tomorrow anyway

Dear little girl

I’m always forgetting I’m not you

You just don’t belong in this big world like you used to
