Entrance

If you’re of a certain belief
Then you’re aware we started with Adam and Eve
If you say we’re animals, how can it be
When we’re the only ones who can understand and fulfill our dreams

Money seems to be the thing that many continue to chase
While believing a lie that we are of a different race
Hair is hair and eyes are eyes, so why should color of skin imply
The need for hate to arise when we can all reproduce and maintain similar insides

Many controversial topics continue to pulsate
Within each and every nation at an alarming rate
The global population identifies with one single number
So why can’t we share one common love for another

The view of responsibility needs to be reconnected
So that we can propel a better agenda to those who are elected
Unity seems to have long been lost
When those claiming peace use violence to express their thoughts

There is a lot yet to overcome
I just hope more light spreads through the dark before our time is done
Every second that passes is another closer to our death bed
So please be extremely aware of the knowledge that enters your head

Dilemma

The anxieties of change never cease
Always questions in the decisions we release
Pressures upon pressures constantly increase
Our minds wondering when it can experience some peace

There’s always a tomorrow, always a new day
No matter what variables rise up and come into play
Should we stop and think, leaving ourselves at bay
Or continue in the current that could leave us swept away

Nerves are the body’s way of telling you to feel
Elevating certain signs that these decisions are real
Depending on the significance determines the deal
Will we take back control of our lives or let insignificance continue to steal

Gap

All the days
In all the ways
Echoes fade
And Echoes gain

Evil in the prison walls
As on the outside many tears fall
Lives come and lives go
Round and round the issues grow

Positive and negative, one outweighs the other
If we start to see ourselves one in another
Will things change or remain the same
Regardless, we need to stop treating life as a game

There’s always a chance

That you’ll learn something
That it means nothing
That it could possibly change everything

Let the heavens sing
Let the phones ring
Let the changes of love begin happening

Open your eyes to what the day brings
Have the purpose of life flow like a spring
Never forget that kindness is always worth practicing

Endure

Trying to hide
The fallen pride
Identity subsides
Anger collides
Then depression divides
Love can provide
An outlet to guide
So never give in to suicide

Standard

The beauty you hold is the standard
That will always be my answer
Whatever makeup you decide or flow of the hair
All the other shapes, sizes, and styles can’t compare

You’re the one I hold dear
When we first started, to year after year
In case I haven’t made it clear
I want to be your love that’s always near

The truth is I want to protect and hold you close
I’m intrigued by the person you are beyond the clothes
I want to support your endeavors and be a part of your adventure
Keeping you encouraged and uplifted because you’re my treasure

To me it isn’t about your image because I see grace
The kindness you hold in your heart reflected by the smile on your face
Actions speak louder than words, so let me be your resting place
I’ll always prove that you’re safest within my embrace

There’s nothing we can’t do
You’re the one for me, I always knew
Each time you ask how you look
Again, there’s no one as gorgeous all around in my book

Choice

They say you can’t pick your family
But, my parents picked me
There is truth to the saying
Since I didn’t have a say in the things

Adopted and introduced to two new siblings
It’s been awhile now, the numbers are adding
Family for the most part isn’t chosen
Until you’re ready to get your own in motion

Friends are what most of us actually get to pick
With an eye to promote time in those relationships
When it comes to starting that next chapter
Commitment and loyalty are what we’re after

The notion of giving up shouldn’t exist
Being there throughout needs to be the promise
Just like the support of a family or a friend
Enhance the best you’ve ever had choosing to give your all till the end

Segmented

A story that many seek
As they go about their week
Trying to be strong, but in reality are weak

Seeking a pleasurable treat
From each individual they tend to meet
Yet don’t treat them how they want to be treated, but like meat

A person is still a human, we’re in the same crowd
Somehow the view of each has been different aloud
When we all have the right to freedom or should be allowed

No matter the country or the view
Diversities make things unique in all we do
Respect, kindness, and discipline in this era sure are due

Intellect and wisdom are different machines
Try to change up the daily lifestyle, try a new scene
Learn through experiences, rather than just by what may be seen

Effect

Half a planet away
You cheer me up each day
To think in the past
We never would’ve crossed paths
Now with the connectivity
I’ve gotten to experience your blessing
Despite the distractions and tragedies
Technologies have still been exciting
A gentle personality, innocent in a way
Greatness blooms within, this I will say
A smile that truly impacts my heart
No matter the miles we are apart

Barrier

Two spirits separated by geography
One is earthly, the other now heavenly
One can see the other, while one just remembers
Two seconds is far different for each member

What was once a flash is now a light
What was once darkness is now bright
The drastic changes from one to the next
Something to ponder, so complex

An instant is all it seems when it’s done
While living, it may seem like a lengthy run
Years are a measurement of time
But nothing can express the gap between these two sides
