A Picture Maybe Misperceived

let me give you a picture of my life,
it’ll give you a little insight to what it’s like,
it’ll give you just enough so you may be able to understand,
the trails and tribulations of just one man,
how will you perceive it: joy or pain,
a life in tact or a life in vain,
will you perceive it as right or a need to change,
a life out of control or one that is well-maintained,
am i running through life or am i guided by a cane,
have i lost my mind or am i completely sane,
will you lay me on the counter or will i be framed,
will your last thought of me be good or followed by the words “what a shame”,
which of these thoughts will travel through your mind,
from this picture of me frozen in time,
so just remember to never judge a book by it’s cover; no matter what you think you see,
because what you saw may very well have been misperceived.

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.

Can’t Nobody

can’t nobody hear the words my soul spoke,
      can’t nobody read the poems my soul wrote,
      can’t nobody carry the burdens my soul totes,
      can’t nobody understand what my soul knows,

      can’t nobody swim the flood of my soul’s tears,
      can’t nobody surpass the knowledge of my soul’s years,
      can’t nobody capture the strength of my soul’s fears,
      can’t nobody understand the value of my soul’s ears,

      can’t nobody measure the amount of my soul’s cares,
      can’t nobody keep up with all of my soul’s affairs,
      can’t nobody climb to the top of my soul’s stairs,
      can’t nobody understand the depth of my soul’s lairs,

      can’t nobody catch the breeze my soul blows,
      can’t nobody stop the growth my soul grows,
      can’t nobody change the choices my soul chose,
      can’t nobody understand what my soul shows,

      all in all it remains a mystery of the unknown,
      as the captures above have indirectly shown.
     

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.

 

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.
