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.
     

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.
