I’m Tired

I'm tired of seein death,
I’m tired of seein little kids shot because they got no vest,
so they get hit by a stray bullet right in the chest,
or they take one right in the head,
either way they whind up dead,
and all we have to say is three words that begin with rest,
I’m tired of these kids dying from these drugs like meth,
I’m tired of lookin at life and say what’s next,
and then sittin around and sayin what’s left,
I’m tired takin life slow like it’s a game of chess,
well knight to king it’s time to put some of these things to rest,
cuz while things are like this they can never be a pursuit for happiness,
 
I’m tired of livin life in a small town,
I’m tired of feelin like the whole world’s trying to hold me down,
I’m tired feeling like a prisoner; always bound,
I’m tired of all my hope’s and dreams being rained on until they all drown,
I’m tired of never wearing a smile but always wearing a frown,
I’m tired of never feeling up cuz I’m always feeling down,
I’m tired of trying to hide and always being found,
I’m tired of looking for a verb and only finding a noun,
I’m tired of running to only be run down,
I’m tired of worrying about my ending sound,
the sound that’ll put me in the ground,
I’m tired of feeling like i shouldn’t express my feelings out loud,
I’m tired of looking for a thought and only findin a cloud,
 
I’m tired of kids steady joinin these gangs,
and in return they get lead into all sorts of thangs,
they just keep treatin life like it’s some kind of game,
and when they get busted they start lookin for someone to blame,
well if you lookin for someone to blame you only have to do one thang,
look at your birth certificate and find your name,
cuz you make your own path and only you’re the blame,
I’m tired of people not tryin to change,
this racist stuff is out; times ain’t the same,
judgin me by my color is like judgin me by my name,
the fact is is this damn stuff is insane,
so if you don’t know me don’t judge me that’s all i got to say,
so i guess I’ll go through life just waitin for a change,
just lookin for those better days,
so understand what I’m sayin help me change the game.

My Sences

I see the world through your eyes,
Through all the kisses and goodbyes,
I see the world through your hair,
Through all the ways that people care,
I see the world through your smile,
Wishing forever we would sit and talk for a while,
I see the world through your chin,
Through every challenge; together we can win,
I hear the world through your ears,
Through the rainfall and the tears,
I hear the world through your heartbeat,
Through the noise on any city’s street,
I hear the world through your voice,
Over all the yelling and the noise,
I hear the world through your sigh,
Over all the people  who will cry,
I feel the world through your hand,
though sometime its hard to understand,
I feel the world through your love,
Floating away, I fly back like a lonesome dove,
I feel the world through your breath,
And will love you long after we have left,
I feel the world through your touch,
For you alone forever will i lust,
I smell the world through your nose,
Such beauty i thought could only belong to a rose,
I smell the world through your scent,
And will always remember the places we will have went,
I smell the world through your breeze,
Like the sweet scent from a forest of trees,
I smell the world through your perfume,
With the smell of a mid-summer’s bloom,
I taste the world through your tongue,
Such sweet splendor could never be wrong,
I taste the world through your kiss,
You and only you will i forever cherish,
I taste the world through your wind,
Such sweet sensations should never be considered a sin,
I can even taste the world through the arch of your back,
And i hope my love for you will make up for what i lack,
So as you can hopefully tell,
For you and you alone do my senses dwell,
All five senses have surrendered to the wonder that is you,
And i can only hope your senses make you love me the way i wanna love you.

Bonnie And Clyde (song titles as guidelines)

I lie here awake wishing i was there,
Only god knows why I’m Living on a prayer,
I swear
if i was a bird i would’ve already been there Yesterday,
It’s Crazy how much Your love amazes me with each passing day,
I’ve been waiting for a feeling like this All my life,
Me and you together like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde,
So I just keep hoping that you’ll Let me love you,
So I can be there to tell you Good morning beautiful through and through,
Because me without you is like a Riddle without an answer,
Cuz Your loves gotta hold on me like a cancer,
And even if Nobody knows it but me,
I’ll always try to make you able to see,
See the Circle you’ve got me spinning in Over and over again,
Cuz you alone hold the Kryptonite to this Superman,
I would never be super without you by my side to Make me better,
Together; is what i want us to be through the good and the bad weather,
You’ll never have to worry about me saying Goodbye my lover, this is true,
Never will i Runaway because i want Only you,
So long after the day we journey down that road On bended knee,
You’ll have My love heart and soul completely,
So though its true Every rose has a thorn,
This is one love that will never be torn,
So from now Until the end of time,
If you remain my bonnie; I will always remain your Clyde.

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.

No Sad Face

Now the rain is comin down,

The pain is pourin down,

I share dis smile, but inside i wear dis frown now,

There’s tears inside now,

In these tears i drown now,

It seems my life is full of water now,

What will i do, where will i go,

How many people will i continue to know,

Will my soul grow, or will i go,

I don’t know what my future holds,

But in the end i guess no one knows,

So i will continue on in this life,

Maybe one day, i’ll have a kid and a wife,

But until that day, I’ll keep movin along,

I’ll try and stay strong as i walk along dis road i’m on,

In this life we all share pain,

But it seems lately dis life’s done gone insane mayne,

It’s got me out here lookin for a change,

But the change i’m gettin ain’t workin,

Cuz the only change i’m gettin is hurtin,

Got this darkness behind me lurkin,

Will it go, well i’m uncertain,

But if i die before i wake, don’t let me see no sad face,

Just know i’m goin to a better place,

Just keep the faith, and I’ll wait for you at the gate,

So don’t worry, just keep livin ya life,

Cuz while ya livin yours, Ima keep livin mine.

Inward Outlook

Pain, pleasure, and pain,

 

 got me in life going insane,

 

 the treasure that I seek is simple sanity mayne,

 

 but until then I keep my eyes open on the change,

 

 people say stay simple but that’s simple saying,

 

 Life’s hard; understanding the serious and the playing,

 

Been trying to understand the black & white but life keeps graying,

 

It is this that keeps me on my knees praying,

 

This colorful blending of the good and bad,

 

Keeps me twisted up but I wear this smile even when I’m sad,

 

I let the anger in me fade who needs this mad,

 

I take this checkered past and turn into plaid,

 

Now why you wanna be mad all the time,

 

Grab the sun because its time to turn this tide,

 

Life’s to long of a journey to not enjoy the ride,

 

Check yourself mayne and destroy this pride,

 

Cause when learn to accept what they say is unacceptable,

 

You get a whole new plug in life, a new receptacle,

 

 You get a whole new reflection that’s reflect able,

 

Because now your outward look is suddenly respectable,

 

So take your new horizon and establish your own sunset,

 

Watch the fall of your pain and the loss of your regrets,

 

Loss of your worries and all these frets,

 

Suddenly this pain you had you will forget,

 

All in all it sounds so quick to do,

 

But nothing is quick when it comes to finding what’s true,

 

It all starts when you look and see what’s trapped inside you,

 

Though your seas maybe rougher then most they can be subdued.

 

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.

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.

Rocky Road

It seems my whole life I have been on this rocky slate,

Maybe it’s meant to be; Maybe my life has a rocky fate,

Because it seems no matter what, I stay buried on this rocky bottom,

And as these rocks begin to pile up, it seems there is no stopping’ em,

So with the weight of the world on my shoulders I walk along,

Stacked up high I tote these boulders,but I carry on,

Steadily I struggle out here on this rocky road,

But even with this mountain of stones, I request no one to share the load,

Why would ask one to share this mountain of pain,

It’s fine for me because I now only have gravel running through these veins,

But though I have a gravel battle sweat never will I let this heart become stone,

Instead I will grind this mound of stone until every bit of the pain is gone,

Because even though I am consumed by this Iron ore,

Within me I will always have this molten core,

And with a heart of passion burning through I will survive,

Because there is no rocky mountain I can’t Breakdown and climb.

Lost

I’m lost out here on this open road,

And it seems I have no where to go,

I’ve lost it; I’ve done lost my mind,

I’ve lost the past, present, and future; I’ve lost all time,

I’ve reached for the sky only to grab the ground,

I’ve tried to jump high but I only fall down,

I show only smiles, But I only have frowns,

A real good swimmer, But in my tears I drown,

Happiness I want, But for me it can’t be found,

Married to sadness; It’s got me Locked-down,

They say don’t be so serious, well I’m a Sad-Clown,

I’m like the beautiful song, But without the sound,

My heart still beats, But it’s more like a Pound,

My pain’s never ending, no edges, It’s Round,

I tried to break free, But it seems I’m Well-Bound,

It’s a kingdom of pain, And only I wear this Crown,

But I guess all in all Though I’m stuck on this road,

And at a Dead End with no where to go,

As i grab the watch and start to find Time,

Maybe just Maybe I will begin to find my Mind.
