Live!

We have

winced and leered,

thriven and failed,

 loved and unloved,

exulted and howled,

 forgotten and recalled,

endured and resigned,

 learned and unlearned,

spoken and unexpressed,

trusted and doubted,

 practiced and untried.

Things will surely come and go.

Let’s just live and go with the flow!

Tangled

I’m lying soundlessly here in my bed,
Thinking of the bizarre things you said.
Haplessly stuck in this useless rumination,
Oh, it will be healthier to take a vacation,

Why did you baffle my mind like this?
Why did you not just hug me and kiss?
Why did you not choose to say sorry?
You just blocked my mind with worry.

Oh, I’ll just let my mind and heart croon,
Just come home and be with me soon!
I may hate and forget you!
But inside I still love you!

Empower the Children

Verse 1

Are you visionless?

Have you not seen your children begging?

Are you deafened?

Have you not heard your children crying?

Are you voiceless?

Have you not spoken those words of healing?

Verse 2

Stop, look, and listen!

They need you more than anything!

Stand and do your part!

Before everything turns to nothing!

Pre-Chorus:

They need you, they need you!

Chorus 1:

Empower the children of the world.

Provide their basic needs and support.

Set healthy structures and relationships.

Develop consistencies and strategies.

Oh….Oh…Oh….Oh…..Oh……Oh…….

Chorus 2

Empower the children of the world.

Show them your love and concern.

Lead them to the path of their dreams.

Help them become the best of what they can be.

Verse 3

Family size, availability, and maturity.

These things should be observed in building a family.

You can create a lovely and joyful home.

If you will only live up to your obligation.

Bridge

Choose to become responsible parents!

Choose to produce children the world needs!

Empower the children of the world.

Empower the children of the world.

The Story of an Eccedentisiast- A SONNET

Once upon a time there was you and me.

We were young and overflowing with affection.

We had the best life and we both lived in glee.

And everything stayed in an unadulterated unison.

 

You made me believe that forever is not only a word.

That when two people work together, it will work.

That nothing and no one can stop them even a sword.

That all birds have beautiful melodies even a stork.

 

But like any heartbreaking movie or story I hate to see.

Our then sweet beginning resulted to a bitter ending.

You were no longer happy with me, so I set you free.

Even it was excruciating inside, even I felt like dying.

 

You made me an eccedentisiast, my dear.

Smiling unpretentiously is now my fear.
