WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

As inevitable as the rain When it decides to pour And the rays of the sun When it finally rises Time comes that we must be Be who and what we are   How about we choose? Choose to happy and free Break the ties that bind us To past woes and future worries How...
A PLACE TO CALL HOME

A PLACE TO CALL HOME

Been away for a while A few road patches But fine alright Thought huh, my knowing Oh true, and my not knowing Got me on a peddle stone Maybe finally a better place A place I could call home   While away, I wandered Along deep empty streams Praying for the unknown Perhaps hoping to...
TO HAVE LIVED ENOUGH

TO HAVE LIVED ENOUGH

When that curtain is drawn With all else dimmed out My heart craves meaning That I shall have lived enough All the sunrises woken up to And all the sunsets that were Every one breathe taken I hope to have lived enough   Past that last full moon I hope dawn breaks even And the...
BESTOWED

BESTOWED

I had to find you only To help me deal this deal The one deal that should count for us The only deal that counts for me A long, unknowing search it was Such rareness was hard to find The mass would rather not deal Can’t  beat them, can’t join them   Every crowd filled...
LOOSE CHANGE

LOOSE CHANGE

There’s been more of everything A little can’t hurt a pinch This overflowing abundance Maybe it’s time to give Looks like it’s needed Even in small doses it’s taken No need to blow up the barn The extras are theirs for take   I hear you’re a busy man The endless hustle of more and...
MY MUSE

MY MUSE

She spoke of stories untold Raging storms razing the calm Wild fires that burnt to burn Peace found beyond the doubts Laughter no one knew about Things history had no clue about All for the happy life we hear about   Her words brought meaning untold They spoke of things never heard of Those that...
BEYOND REASON

BEYOND REASON

These voices in my head Thunder in a raging storm A calm breeze in serenity It’s ever the same noise Never one or the other It takes a toll on me But I know no other That’s how to get stuck   As I gazed into space You whispered into my ear With so much...
THE OTHER MAN

THE OTHER MAN

  All I just want, is for you to want to know All the things that I really want for me And to want them all for me As much as I want them for me For all you know, it’s all I need   Maybe am asking for too much But when ever is...
LIKE LOVERS DO

LIKE LOVERS DO

They talk like lovers do Laugh like lovers do They stare like lovers do Cuddle like lovers do They’re like lovers You’d think they’re lovers She went out last night With this man, Jack You stayed up late Thinking all about her Jack is a jerk She deserves better But you know you’re mad Only...
THE UNTOLD STORY

THE UNTOLD STORY

  There is a story buried That even I can’t find It’s written in your eyes In different shades of dirt It’s a hard story to tell As even you can’t tell The tides that come and go Are they there to find? She was a beautiful woman Of the rare kind She could quiet...
THE CALLING

THE CALLING

Why lie, it’s a calling A calling for greatness To be a better man for them To do better things for them To look beyond you for them So much joy in such a small seed Much more joy in seeing the seed grow This seed that will never be fully grown All because you...
THE TWENTY FOURTH HOUR

THE TWENTY FOURTH HOUR

Twenty four hours to decide Only two of four thoughts can win Each of the twenty four more agony For one decision can mend or break The twenty fourth hour shall mend or break It’s a dark, scary place to be It promises only heaven or hell Oh how we all yearn for heaven Even...
