A MAN NAMED SICK ©

I knew this man named Sick,
The way he talked and the way he walked,
I knew he was slick,
He told me he was sharp on his game,
I told him truth would be his claim to fame.

Sick said he didn’t have to play by the rules,
I told Sick, he could end up in all the wrong schools,
Sick said, I am too damn overtly clever,
I said Sick, you are headed to that place called never,
Sick spoke about all he would do not to get to that place ever.

I told Sick to rethink his thoughts and change his ways,
Sick said, why should I? I’ve been doing this all my days,
I said, I don’t care what you do,
I’m giving you advice, just to help save yourself from you.

Sick just laughed at me and said, listen woman you can’t tell me nothing
that’s already embedded in my head,
I told Sick, you are so animated, inadequate, ignorant and not well read,
For the consequences of your lesser deeds of what you portray are gonna get you busted all upside your head.

I felt in my gut, this would be the last time I would ever see Sick again,
Knowing him from childhood and the neighborhood, he had become sin,
Moving forward from our conversation that day, I felt a need to pray,
For I knew Sick would not live a long life doing things in his way.

My day was done, so I decided to watch the six o’clock news, to my dismay,
The news struck my nerve about the conversation I had with Sick that day,
The reporter said, a young man was struck down by three bullets to the head,
News traveled fast from the neighbors, saying it was someone from our neighborhood, which was called and known as The Shred.

Sitting still I gazed at the television thinking about my premonition,
I was hoping it wasn’t the person whom I had envisioned,
Sick was the first person who came to my mind.
I said, Oh Lord, please no more death at this time.

Following my first mind, I rushed to the hospital to see if it was Sick,
The doctor asked me if I could and would identify this man,
I said I know this man and yes I can,
I told the doctor we all called him Sick but his true birth name was Rick.

The doctor continued with the scenario of what his gunshot wounds were,
The doctor also told of Sick’s last words of what the strife Sick had incurred,
At this time all the doctors gathered around me, while one told me he held on to his life as long as he could
for there was nothing else they could do or would,

Another doctor said, Sick was screaming and shouting for us to save his life,
He asked this particular doctor to call the woman who gave him the best advice.

RIP SICK.

SPINNING

SPINNING

Spinning around in a circle of wind, nimbus clouds and weather of hail
One only knows how dizzying a strong wind can prevail
Be it in the mid of day or be it in the early morning night
One will just continue spinning until they get it right

While the sun rises up spinning light into your eyes
Waking up will relieve  from the spinning full of sighs
Seems as though daylight starts to gleam
Just to think this may be only another twirling dream

Circling and twirling, twisting and turning too
Allowing for a chill to gust through the mist and moisture anew
Round and round  spinning all tables turning to the wind
Beckoning one’s call out to the spinning of the spinning day’s end

Gazing at a very dark cloud spinning around the house
Recognized as a twister spinning strong and ready to oust
Must get ready to get cover beneath the stairs for the force
Stables bust open get saved by the spinning horse

We Are Creatures of Nature

We Are Creatures of Nature

We are creatures of nature
We must do what God said to do
We need to clean this land
We got to come together
One by one and hand by hand

We are creatures of nature
We need to fix what we can
We need more love and togetherness
We know of the old wise man

We are creatures of nature
We must do better for fellow man
We must join together one by one
We have to do this hand in hand

We are creatures of nature
Let us not reap what we sow
We need to sow seeds together
For our green earth to continue to grow

We are creatures of nature
We were put all over this land
It takes all of us to do what’s right
So we can follow God’s plan

We are creatures of nature
However we choose
Now if we don’t clean up God’s earth
We the people will only loose

We are creatures of nature
No need to explain
We are all put here for a purpose
To live in harmony, without the pain

We are creatures of nature
We just cannot let it be
We have choices in life
To make it all worth it for you and me

We are creatures of nature
We must love it too
For if the ground we walk on is not cleaned up
We will end up in doom

We are creatures of nature
We must do what’s right
We have got to lift each other up in prayer
We must save each other’s lives

We are creatures of nature
We know our Father loves us so
We got to give it all up to God
We must now bow our heads and nod
Amen

Bitter or Better

Bitter or Better

Bitter holds an institution of motions to blame
Bitter is an ugly truth of hiding in shame
Bitter is a behavior always misunderstood
Bitter leaves one tossing and turning, mostly up to no good
Bitter is the litter of the not so kind
Bitter will leave one lost and hard to find
Bitter……lost

Better is key to turn one around
Better will melt bitter down to the ground
Better will keep all safe, loved and warm
Better exudes energy to wither any storm
Better feels good, I know you all agree
Better look at the world to see what I see
Better……found

Do not waste your time on being Bitter
Give most your time to being Better

Hey People

Hey People

Hey People
Dream with your hearts and souls with the spirit
Never by greed and the soulless ones of mankind
I have dreams of the very start
The dreams derive from the belief in God

Pay attention
Confusion is killing
Cost of food is starvation
The power of drug is disorientation
Children born in hunger sick and drug addicted

The working class is poor
The greed is rich
War is violence on a rise anywhere
Sleep is unrest
State of a union…….
What is that?

Hey People
Evil is the force that changed it all (Bad)
Love is the source to stop it all  (Good)
Stick together leave deception alone
Forever be true for one to live long
Get together with God
Then come on

Stay sturdy in your path
Pray worthy to our Heavenly Father
Balance the rope it’s tight
The time is ticking……
Growth…….
Where?

Hey People
All of this applies
Do not let deceit become your lie
Love each other all the time
Peace will be still in God
Truthfully always right on time

Feeling sublime on a dime
This time…….time after this time

Hey People

Commitment

Commitment

When two hearts become one in marriage, and until death do one part
Commitment
When you have a child the responsibility does not set you apart
Commitment
When you sign your name to legal papers and nothing can change that fact
Commitment
When you buy a pet let’s say it’s a cat, you will love your cat and that is a pact
Commitment
When friends become close, you will trust in each other to the max
Commitment
When people see other people down, they take their energy to pull them out of their frown
Commitment
When you take God into your heart, you never failed not from the start
Commitment

Well now that you understand these clues, nothing else could go wrong
Days will be short, nights will be long,
Rest easy now, the power is in you, read these lines that’s all you need to do

If you think these words help in your lives, take them and share them with others who arrive
In doing this you can help someone’s broken soul, fulfill a heart and make it whole………..Commitment

The Woman’s Worth

Just a true feeling of a thought

The Woman’s Worth

For the woman is of her word, a thinker, she’s a once in a lifetime for a man. He who has truly never experienced a true woman, he will not understand the true meaning of love. Woman held babies in a womb. a one of a kind thing. Woman is not easy come, easy go, she is unforgettable! She will show you more than you know about love affectionately.

Man must be kind to her, all the time, if he wants her to remain with him. She shows him by always letting him know she loves him, her comfort, soothing, warm, mostly gentle ways, softness, dedication, patience and then some.

A woman is worth more to man than money can buy! Make sure you have some, it’s a given. and a privilege!

GET OUT THE BOX

Get out the Box

When you are at home feeling life on the rocks,
One thing to do is to get up and get out the box
Life holds many adventures, try them, in order to get involved
When you try something new most problems will be resolved

Get out your socks, Get out the box

Sometimes one will only procrastinate
Just to find they keep doing the same thing to stagnate
Not to anticipate, always late, unsatisfied with one’s fate
Behavior must change, you are the one in charge
Mend your ways to make life so much more large

Get out your socks, Get out the box

Participate in oneself to make changes in one’s life
Give up the repetitive motions, that keep you feeling strife
This is a all up to you if you want better in all things you do
One should say I will put on my shoes and socks
I will pick up where I left off, move forward and get out the box

Get out the Box!

Think outside the box
Think outside the box

Inners

Inners

I am inners, a feeling of feeling one
I am inners, it’s a spiritual thing
I am inners, no scars no wounds
I am inners, my soul to keep
I am Inners, when lost can be found
I am inners, living inside one
I am inners, always feeling one
I am inners, passion with love
I am inners, always there
I am inners, inside peace
