What Is Music?

music is sounds that soothe the soul,
it doesn’t matter whether you’re young or old,
or whether you are a woman or a man,
it’s something we turn to when no one else seems to understand,
we turn to it when we’re happy or sad,
or even if we’re angry or mad,
we turn to it when we feel hurt or full of pain,
when things change or if they stay the same,
when we feel lost and can’t find our way,
or even when we just need something to help calm our spirit when we pray,
it’s actually funny how music seems to make things go away,
and how it soothes the soul, so we can make it through another day,
it is something that we all truely cherish,
so much that it is even played for us after we perish,
this is to ease the pain of the loved-ones we’ve left behind,
and to give them a song to remember us by,
and maybe, just maybe someday soon,
You’ll hear a sound ,a song, or just a little tune,
that will send you away someday , but hopefully not too soon,
and leave behind a memory for those you love who love you too.

Brotherly Tears

As my memories fade back I can still see,
The brother I lost who never left me,
I still remember the day you had to go,
My brother gone, no more will i get to know,
I remember your smile and your dark green eyes,
I remember so much that often it makes me cry,
I remember when you used to babysit my cousin and me,
I remember the times we used to just chill under a tree,
I remember how you were always so nice,
Why should such a gentle soul have such a short life,
To die before you are sixteen; when you have such a sweet soul,
It just don’t seem right; you should’ve lived to be old,
But that’s all to late now, cuz you’re already gone,
But in a way you are still here,
So though at time i will feel alone,
I will always remember you are still with me every time i shed my brotherly tears.

‘Just Stumblin Through Life’

Sittin here thinkin bout all the things around me,
What’s makin me smile; whats makin me frown see,
My jobs got me down but not out,
And the pain in my back is makin me wanna scream and shout,
And den There’s a girl and she’s got my smile,
Hope it stays dat way forever and a while,
Cuz I need all the grins that I can achieve,
Cuz im tryna keep dis sadness and anger away from me,
So I’ll keep my head held up high and search for tomorrow,
Fuck today and all today’s sorrows,
Cuz I’ll be alright as long as I keep grindin and keep my head held high,
Just like T. I, said: I’m gonna live my life,
So until the next time you see me write,
Just remember there’s only three things worth the fight:
Friends, Family, And what you know is right.

Valentines Day

Passion for lust,

This is a bust,

Passion for love,

This we should glove,

Passion in the heart,

That’s a start,

Passion in the soul,

That’s love growed,

Passion not forgotten,

That’s what we all wantin,

Passion for a day,

That’s just child’s play,

Passion that remains,

Some say that’s insane,

But passion that stays,

Is what we all chase,

Passion just for the fourteenth,

Well that’s just bleak,

Wanna be a Valentines,

First try being mine,

I don’t need a teaser,

Wanna a woman, to please her,

So really think,

What does love mean to you,

Are you on the brink,

Or just passing through,

If your answer is you wanna stay,

Then let’s talk about more than a day,

If not then head for the next,

Because I’m looking for the journey not the wreck.

The Answer to MY Request

I want the moon to my wolf,

The sun to my ocean,

The rain to my forest,

the cactus to my desert,

The scope  to my stars,

The river to my valley,

The sky to my mountain,

The bridge to my lake,

The sand to my beach,

The gold to my rainbow,

The books to my library,

The sound to my ears,

The colors to my eyes,

The texture to my touch,

The fragrances to my smell,

The sweetness to my taste,

The passion to my heart,

The whisper in the wind,

The softness in my voice,

The breath in my lungs,

The time in my life,

And the soul to my afterlife,

These are the things I look for in a woman,

Now who will be the answer to my request.

To a Hart

Broken Hart well let’s mend it,

Strong heart never offended,

They say only fear fear itself,

But that’s what they say before the put ya on the back shelf,

Hold your head high now that’s always good until ya stumble,

But what do you do, rumble young woman rumble,

Hold on cuz this a long ride,

Pain, sweat, and tears babygirl that’s life,

But strength you have so show that muscle,

Life is a liar so only trust you,

What it do that;s a question with an answer only for you to know,

But the healing ya pursued is a truth shown in growth,

So keep ya pretty Smile shining,

And stay head strong no worries here cuz i know from you There will be no whining,

So in life you yes you will always be the winner,

So this is me wishing you nothing but the better.

Your Solid Rock

In weakness one should stand with strength,

In fear one should stand in courage,

But in love one always falls helplessly, paralyzed,

Weakness is a catalyst that often changes in a blink,

Fear will only win when courage is allowed to be kept in shortage,

Love is insanity in its sanest form and cannot be categorized,

Weakness implies being weak which is considered bad,

Fear implies being afraid to live some aspect of life,

Love for this seems all wrong because it has both of these,

Being able to be weak and learn from it is how one learns what can be had,

Fear lets us conquer it and become the better form of the I,

While love takes these and changes us from the I into we,

In order to be strong we must allow ourselves to be weak,

And to have courage we must first accept fear,

And with these love is right around the corner or just up the block,

So take your weakness, make it strength so your life will no longer be allowed to be bleak,

And take your new found courage and leave your fears in the rear,

Now take these necessities and find that friend, that soul-mate, Your Solid Rock.

Join the Game of Life

Feel a change coming through,

Life’s debts have came due,

Some would say “what’s a man to do”,

I say, take a stand and stand true,

Look in the mirror and take a picture,

Do you trust what you see, go figure,

Are you scared to make a change? get eager,

It’s time to dump the past, go ahead and pull the leaver,

Because the present is new and the future is free,

Time to watch what you do so you will like what you see,

Time to get a clue, do you know who you want to be?,

Time to fall from the group and make like a tree-leave,

It’s time to finally stand on your own,

Time to accept your calling, Answer the phone,

Time to dig thru life’s rumble and build you a home,

Time to join the life, love and laughter and abandon being alone,

Time to forget black and white and join the gray,

Time to learn how to act, so you can take the stage,

Time to abandon slow and fast, let’s join the pace,

Time to accept the change in the change,

Time to break limits and get in the open-range,

Time to take that knowledge and make a claim,

And forget about who should be blamed, and just join the game.

A Story Worth Talen

The fear of death is one that many possess,

A fear coming in the making, Thus I digress,

I have been to the edge but I never fell,

Thus thru this life I get to proceed with a story to tell,

No fear will I ever let hold me back,

Continuing to run my life on the right track,

Why should I fear the future or regret my past,

Anyone who proceeds this way will surely be the first to finish last,

So pushing my strengths and squishing my weaknesses, I will prevail,

Invisible to the rain, the sleet, and the hail,

I’ve set my goals well beyond the sun,

The light shining upon my life line until it is completely spun,

So thru this time I will surpass all space,

Whether I reach the stars or become the silver-lining across the milky way,

I will always proceed with on my face this grin,

Well beyond what many in life consider the end,

So I ask what fear will or have you let hold you back,

And I challenge you to grab those future fears and pass them into your past,

Because only with the success of many do we truly prevail,

This is the story I wish our lives to tale.
