Thinking

Well, I thought thinking was smart. Now I know the name beneath This swooning cocoon. Money is nice. Time is not. Less I command This eloquent spot. By evening drop Two days to naught. I will live less a drought. I know I am shallow. I know I am aware. How do I dare Ask for what I cannot bear? To a grizzly I am salmon To a monkey I am hair To an elephant I am graceful. To you I am there. Part-time again, Relieving my spare time That is greatly agreed Most devastatingly moving At a most dastardly speed. Please heed my request to thee. Thank you greatly. I apologize for this overwhelming tide; However, I cannot abide full-time. My original schedule I do need. Monday, Wednesday and Friday abide in me, Like Jesus my Savior indeed. Please accept my apology. I am able and keep responsibility Granted me.

Heavens

See the sun bright and loud, Now hidden behind the cloud? See the sun come out and shout, Now again behind the cloud? See the sun loves the cover Of the clouds because they’re soft. Like pillows of sheep, The sun may sleep, Beyond the keep, Of the clouds. See the blue sky sparkle? To know what it’s covering Is great mystery. See the blue sky covers Floors of heavens. See the blue sky always… Unless it is a cloudy day, When the heavens come out and play With the sun. See the trees try to reach the sky? See the trees with their branches so high? See the trees want to know what’s up there, Like you and I. See the trees strive To reach the heavens.

All is Vanity

My mama said money don’t grow on trees I said I wish it did cause it answers all things Said a wise man with a thousand wives They loved him until his demise Mama don’t you cry Mama wipe your eyes Mama don’t you grieve All is vanity My daddy said don’t call me Charles Marry a good black man But all I want is to play my guitar And sing my pain away All those things I never could say Daddy don’t you cry Daddy wipe your eyes Daddy don’t you grieve All is vanity Well there’s nothing new under the sun Your mama don’t love me no more The grass is greener on Indian shores Julie don’t love a black man Julie said but I’m in love with him Julie don’t you cry Julie wipe your eyes Julie don’t you grieve All is vanity Madea said be a good girl Listen to your mama Don’t cause no trouble I said I hate you You know it’s not my fault I’m so sorry with all my heart Girl don’t you cry Girl wipe your eyes Girl don’t you grieve All is vanity

Impress Me

Impress me I want to see What you’re all about Impress me I want to see Give me a shout Yeah! Leave a mark That will start a spark Make all things new Get out of the dark Come live in the ark don’t be blue The gift inside me Will never flee Hide me now Before I take a bow Before the King of kings Do you know Where the river flows Which way shall I go Let go God will bring you back Don’t worry Bout the devil’s attack God will give you What you lack Rise Up

For Wisdom’s Sake

Purple hearts are fun to see. I’ll wait for your heart endlessly. I can remember vividly, Your request hath redeemed me, To be a better person. For whom can see, My intimidation of love unforeseen? Relentless thought invites me to live. Life’s desires. Best for me. And for one who is searching. I will not pout, For I have confidence in your doubt. When I am there, Love shall be. Love invites. Fate relieves. Duty of false acceptance of me Leave love’s denial faithfully. Imaginative promises floating away… Not missed, But appreciated for wisdom’s sake.

For Heaven’s Sake

A dream without faith Is wheat with much chaff. The chaff you don’t need. The chaff inquires greed, lust, and hate. The chaff is abundant waste. Endure with faith Relieve the hate Endure much grace For heaven’s sake.

Boundaries

Our love was forsaken. One last rain Would help me cry, Again and again. The weather contains me. Boundaries. Set all about me. Redemption is weak, Ego is forsaken, Trials end in bitter defeat. My soul was truly mistaken, Such is life’s retreat. Mountains float into the sea, Fate reaches out to me, Like a shadow life proceeds, Transcending reality. Syrophoenician queens Plead with Jesus, Cast this demon out of me. Out of my body, Out of my hair, Out of my navel, Is my prayer. Feed me. I’m a worthless dog, I know it too. But if you loved dogs The way I do, You would love me too. I said, I do, I do, I do love you.
