    Never Give Up...

    We have all been there....
    Pitch black, darkness, no light
    Hit, smacked, kick at, All bites
    To get back, can't sit back, no fight
    Don't loose sight when the going gets
    tough
    The tough use their might when the going gets
    rough
    Dont be type that wines and grunts
    There are plenty of them Already lining up
    Dig deep & seek like a miner does
    So you can reach the peak & align with Us
    Just make your mind intertwined with trust.
    It takes some time, its fine, you'll adjust
    It's a must you grind & find what you Love

    Tomorrow's Dreams...

    Lately it's like my demons hate me,
    Trying to take me to another place so they can break me
    Lord don't let 'em in, I keep tell him, but he must think I'm faking, 
    waking, up cold sweats, aching  
    In Hell again, inhaling sin, does hell just win 
    Or are we just hellish men, can't you tell I'm in, this cell again
    Like your son on the cross with nails in him 
    Look how pale I get, but that's irrelevant
    In my own room out of my element, half of brain maintains intelligence, the other half I don't know where the hell it went, probably to hell I bet, the nails of death, impale my chest, I failed to rest, so I hail the best, as I exhale this mess, before I confess, Im less than I wanna be,  what do want from me, I just want to be gone you see, on longest sea, where no one follows me, through the hollow breeze leaving no apologies, believe me these are tomorrows dreams,
    As my sorrow screams

    The Best You

    Work on self love until astronomical, 
    Try not to take life to serious, more comical
    Be kind to one Another, never abominable
    Be content with yourself, face, abdominal
    Do your best on life's test, Make phenomenal
    Don't be so quick to blame yourself yet stay responsible
    Stay focused on your visions, open optical
    Know if you put you mind to it, almost nothing is impossible
    Educate yourself and always stay logical
    Be a force in this world, know your unstoppable

    When lightning strikes

    All the sudden the lightning struck
    & thunder was rumbling
    The sky lit up as the rain started tumbling
    I offer this gift to you,
    like what a mother brings
    I often just slip, and get into another drink
    I might need a lift from this,
    can you start hovering
    If I reset, I'll let, you start the recovery
    I just want to get, on a jet with my lover see
    You can bet I'll never regret the love I see
    It mostly connects since my mother
    Neglected to be motherly
    There was no hugs to see, or kisses at you
    Certainly no missing you too,
    So I hope my mission is through,
    by getting with you
    Im sticking like glue, red roses & Violets too,
    No violence in you, no violence in me,
    I'm just trying to live right and start a family,
    It's the man in me
    That is handing me the strength.
    How can it be,
    God's protecting like canopies from this rain,
    So the plan I see,
    is to give thanks and just pray

    She asked do you love me...

    She asked do you love me
    I replied, Is champagne bubbly?
    She tried not to cry as she got up & hugged me
    When you look in her eyes
    All evil dies as peace resides inside, just lovely
    I love her more than one way 
    Sweeter than cherry pie on a fun day
    Fly as a plane on a run way
    & Pretty as the clear blue skies on a Sunday

    Rain Drops on the Soul...

    On the days of brain block 
    I wait for rain drops to to heal my soul
    It make the pain stop absorbing energy as it takes it's toll,  
    Wait don't go, there were whispers never heard
    A reminder I finder to speak of the kinder words
    To align with peace that we rarely find on earth
    Time comes first as time ends last
    Thinking memories tend to be a thing of the past
    The thing that I ask, is for your honesty
    Anything less, is considered robbery.

    They Say....

    They say....
    2 wrongs don't make a right,
    But I say, 3 lefts do 
    Life goes on in circles
    Like wearing two left shoes
    God blessed you, Yet God can taketh away
    Does anyone know what best for you
    Or do you follow bc life's gone astray
    Some become so close to you
    And the next they're on their way
    I've had more than a test or two
    Set my sights on scoring an A
    Witches come into your life put a hex on you
    & Somehow you are still to blame
    I have a little regret for you
    If karma's real, I sure you're going to have to pay

    She Was....

    As the doors closed behind her she left a reminder
    She was never lost yet no one could ever find her
    Even the old timers stop in amazement
    Thinking of the Good ol' days,
    Wondering where the days went
    She was never in the basement
    Only the top floor, she had everything going for her
    Yet somehow she got more
    An angel with a halo, she was welcome in heaven
    God couldn't say no, let a alone a Reverend
    Guys were like Playdough & putty In her hands
    She was Sweeter than honey, stamped with a golden tan
    Worth more than any money & could land any man
    Everyday around her was sunny so hot you needed a fan
    Watch when she coming, unbelievable....
    I'll be damned

    Ignorance is bliss?

    On this gravel I shall travel
    Digging in this beaten path
    Under bridges with the pigeons,
    wondering how long can I last. 
    It will depend still my friend
    On my song & dance
    I am certain it's predetermined,
    there is no room for chance.
    People talk like their God
    claiming time to not exist, 
    Then they tend to their friend,
    & yelp to them what time it is.
    If nosey people would close their peephole,
    minding their own biz
    They could tell their noses,
    To smell red Bled roses 
    or even find their kids
    I finally see why people rather be
    having ignorance to get their bliss

    The Challenge is find your Balance

    Life will go smoother, if you let fate balance
    Instead of half way dead, doing a crate challenge
    Attempted suicide, attempt hurt
    The lesson here, is no lesson learned 
    Education totally wasted, messed up, burnt
    Problem facin' no one's patient,  next ur turn
    I walked adjacent as they built a case with, a guess & search
    I can feel the tasting like the pigs are basting, at best they hurt
    Survival of fittest they brought every witness, detective work
    Playing real filthy , found not guilty, necks just turned
    Marked on their hit list, they will never get, rest in dirt
