Slip Out the Back

Listen to Full song here:

Intro:
Yeah, some of you know me
I’m laid back, but take life seriously
Seems like an oxymoron I know
But life is short, so hard I go

Held captive in the eyes of society
Locked up within my diverse creativity
I’m stuck straddlin’ the fence
When will peace begin to commence

I’ve seen the rises and the falls
Equal circumstances for us all
When the tough times come its difficult
But somebody has to rise up and answer the call

So listen here…

1st Verse:
I’m no saint nor claim to be perfect
My heart and mind aim to disrupt the darkness
I try to give what I can in all situations
Stick with me if you need some comfort and protection

I occupy this life in which I was given
Inhalin’ the very same air that you are breathin’
Despite the similarities of bein’ human
We’re all unique and special specimens

This earth is temporary as is the entertainment
The drama isn’t worth your investment
Important aspects are what need your attention
The time we have is too short to go in the wrong direction

We get told lies in a false sense of projection
When we need truth to inspire accurate perceptions
Likewise when we look in the mirror what do we see
Someone upliftin’ or one that takes away with greed

2nd Verse:
I’m no hero, but will do what it takes
Even if you’re a stranger I’ll treat you the same
When bullets fly I’ll stand in the way
I’m not ashamed to be a gentleman these days

I’ve abstained in a world that’s fully engaged
The measurement of pleasure has many caged
Being released is easy just read the B-I-B-L-E
Perhaps conduct a few more acts of decency

Many these days are just too unwillin’ to progress
They’d rather stay piled up within the mess
Continuin’ to ask the right questions, but don’t like the answer
So they tend to fall back into what’s familiar

You’re far better than you give yourself credit for
Remember that anything is possible if you explore
I’m not the judge obviously, it’s your life to improve
I believe you can and will, you just have to choose to

Chart Success

The recently released “My All” is now within the Top Five at #5 within the same Christian Rap chart that “In the Rain” had its success. If you would like to help support the song in the charting system you have to listen to it through this link “My All”, rather than the post below because it is upon a different website. Feel free to share it, rate it, or download it for free all within that link if you’d like. I realize it is a particular style in which some may not prefer, but if you do so decide to take a listen… just know that I am very grateful for your time.

The success of these songs helps further expand my audience and keeps me motivated to continue writing. I appreciate each and every single one of you who have supported me along the way, I truly enjoy creating new works to further express the matter of my mind as well as just allowing myself a creative release. As long as I impact atleast one person with each new piece that is all that matters, even if at times it may just be myself. If they happen to resonate with more, than that is a true blessing. I hope that all of you are doing well and are continuing to move forward with your own creative endeavors as I look forward to reading, watching, or listening to them. Thanks again! Have a great day!

My All

Listen to song here:

Intro (x2):
God is good, God is great
I hope that you are blessed on this day
I said… God is good, God is great
I hope that you are blessed on this day

1st Verse:
Many on this day don’t believe
Unfathomable for them to accept
What is it that you can’t receive
There is no payment, nor debt

When you look up at a cross
What is it that you see exactly
Just another symbolic piece
Or the gateway to a life in eternity

There is only one key to this living
Creativity is prominent in our surrounding
What else could there be to distinguish
There is deliverance from all this anguish

When the money trail ends
All the noise gets laid to rest
And your lungs exhale that last breath
Will your time be stressed or blessed

Time will tell as you live
Actions speak louder than words
He is gracious, He’ll forgive
Don’t swim with the fish, fly with the birds

I know you feel the gap in your heart
Let your mind accept Him, before you depart

Hook:
When I fall
He reaches down
When I call
He reverses my frown

He’s my Lord, my God
My All… My All

When I trail
He makes me lead
When I fail
He helps me succeed

He’s my Lord, my God
My All… My All

2nd Verse:
A lot of people askin’ questions
Embedded in doubt and sinnin’
Close minded to the facts of beyond
Regardless of how it is we respond

Trinity, one…two…three
Christ died for you and for me
Salvation is where He paid it all
Lookin’ for love, then don’t stall

Open the word to see the truth
Escalate that innate faith you already use
You don’t have to be a sleuth
Leave the pain behind, escape the abuse

Golden arches and pearly gates
Once you ask Him into your heart
All of Heaven begins to celebrate
Get your name listed, enter the charts

Through this journey that you embark
Free will has been a constant
Don’t sink below, float like the ark
Your choice is very important

Grasp the gift that keeps on givin’
Once done transformation will happen and you’ll regret nothin’

Hook:
When I fall
He reaches down
When I call
He reverses my frown

He’s my Lord, my God
My All… My All

When I trail
He makes me lead
When I fail
He helps me succeed

He’s my Lord, my God
My All… My All

3rd Verse:
I pray that on this day you’re all ok
God knows I’ve made mistakes
I’ve experienced doubt and heartache
Been through depression, that mental earthquake

It didn’t stop me from believin’
I’ve moved on, I’m proceedin’
I won’t get held back by the enemy
Which is why I try to end the blasphemies

Nature is what it is with our varied culture
Antagonists circlin’ your life like vultures
Society caught in the fragrance of thunder
This I know ‘cause lightning struck us asunder

Look around, when were we last united
A quick assessment shows we’re not delighted
The solution to the problem is easily sighted
But many rather remain stained and blighted

I can’t control what happens next
They want to blame God, when they’re the instruments
What goes around comes around
I just hope you’re not lost, but found

Hook:
When I fall
He reaches down
When I call
He reverses my frown

He’s my Lord, my God
My All… My All

When I trail
He makes me lead
When I fail
He helps me succeed

He’s my Lord, my God
My All… My All

Closing (x2):
God is good, God is great
I hope that you are blessed on this day
I said… God is good, God is great
I hope that you are blessed on this day

Give me a Sign

Listen to song here:

1st Verse:
They never said life would be easy
Even with God on my side it’s tough
You pick and choose rather freely
With the spiritual battle still bein’ rough

Indecision can itself be a mission
One that is sometimes hard to complete
You never want regret leavin’ you wishin’
Nor do you want haste leavin’ you in defeat

With all my gifts and talents it’s hard to see
What exactly God will have in store for me
Many out there with a plethora of options
Life altering status upon each of those decisions

We go about our daily lives hopin for clarity
Not wantin’ the nonsense to get to messy
Risk versus reward is a constant dilemma
Like being caught up in the broad panorama

Such is life a whirlwind of the kind
We can learn and understand just fine
However lack the knowledge most divine
Try to absorb truth with the essence of your time

The importance of the facts remains
We look for love and success much the same
Turning through the pages of life itself
Where only the Bible can guarantee you a true sense of wealth

Hook:
What is it Lord
What is it that you want me to see
I hear your voice in the chord
Knowin’ you’ll always be with me

Open my eyes, Open my mind
Guide me on this everlasting journey
Give me your patience and humility
Let me continue to feel your grace and mercy
Mold me and shape me to continue being a blessing
I know your plan will unfold all in your timing

(Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign) [x4]

2nd Verse:
As you sit and struggle what do you do
I look to the one that made me and you
What kind of pathway did you choose
I hope it was one that provides good news

The many paths presented can be tedious
As only one is necessary to be efficient
Livin’ life at a frantic pace isn’t unusual
Just don’t push yourself toward the cruel

Too many these days stuck in the muck
Entrappin’ themselves in torture for a few extra bucks
Where has passion and desire gone to
It should be alive and well coursin’ through

The clock has never ticked any different
But as we age it seems to go by in an instant
With death on the horizon try not to wait
Your opportunity to shine should be today

Why stand by when you can provide
Give in a little to your purposeful drive
Don’t hide, but go out and seek the ride
After all, listenin’ to this proves you’re alive

Wake up, snap out of the gridlock
Pursue somethin’ that spreads love
You should be cruisin’ not tied up at the dock
Find the greatness you’re meant to be apart of

Hook:
What is it Lord
What is it that you want me to see
I hear your voice in the chord
Knowin’ you’ll always be with me

Open my eyes, Open my mind
Guide me on this everlasting journey
Give me your patience and humility
Let me continue to feel your grace and mercy
Mold me and shape me to continue being a blessing
I know your plan will unfold all in your timing

(Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign) [x4]

3rd Verse:
Are you stuck within an addiction
One that has your relationship conflicted
Can’t seem to stay away as each day
Results in behavior much the same as yesterday

Do your actions require a little cleaning
Does your life feel full of meaning
Would you say you have your priorities straight
What are you hidin’ behind that barricade

Are you able to confess your mistakes
So you can begin to do what it takes
Will you build upon a better foundation
So that you don’t slip into damnation

With every action there is a reaction
Put forth a positive effort to gain some traction
This hurricane of confusion can be remedied
So don’t lay idle as your conscious bleeds

Please educate yourself on the circumstance
Don’t get lulled into the illusionary trance
Become a better prospect to pursue your goal
Your life is a treasure that deserves to be whole

There’s a thin line between ok and fine
Don’t be afraid to go against the grain and realign
You can recover from any set back
Just have to fight with the right attack

Hook:
What is it Lord
What is it that you want me to see
I hear your voice in the chord
Knowin’ you’ll always be with me

Open my eyes, Open my mind
Guide me on this everlasting journey
Give me your patience and humility
Let me continue to feel your grace and mercy
Mold me and shape me to continue being a blessing
I know your plan will unfold all in your timing

(Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign) [x4]

Closing [x4]:
Please Lord give me a sign, just give me a sign, God give me a sign

Stalking Me

Listen to Full song here:

2nd Verse:
Lettin’ go won’t be so easy
I’ve held a special place for you
So close, yet so far apart reluctantly
Atleast we’ve had our time to go through

Lookin’ at the past I’m glad
I’ll never forget your voice
Slowly influencin’ my pen on this pad
Always leadin’ me to make the right choice

Likewise it will still be hard
I don’t think I can ever forget
Silence may never be in the cards
Allow me to apologize for any regret

Little things keepin’ me aware
I just want to sit back and stare
Select notions effectin’ my emotion
All the while our lives spiralin’ in commotion

Lo’ and behold I’ve never truly expressed my love
No tellin’ how you would’ve really felt about it
Very special you are though wonderful woman, blessed from up above

3rd Verse:
All the times we’ve shared
I hope you know how much I cared
Bein’ together was always great
It’s just our unity simply wasn’t fate

What will life be without you in it
I can’t quite grasp the explanation
However I do know that you’ll be fine
Your success will carry you through time

The happiness you seek is so close
As you continue to reach all of your goals
I’m glad I never held you back at all
Your strength has increased over the course of this haul

The impact you make is that of legend
Your super elevation is only beginnin’
The dedication you display is inspirin’
Though I’ve told you that times a thousand

As we separate it’s hard to say goodbye
The moments we shared will leave me askin’ why
Because it was evident I wasn’t supposed to be your guy
Just know I’ll cherish them though all the way to the sky

Dusk

It’s late at night
Worldwide so much fright
I can’t stop thinking
Millions drowning themselves by drinking

Out and about cloaked in darkness
People in problems held and harnessed
It pains me to imagine what could be happening
As I sit here and count my blessings

So much insanity
Lives torn with calamity
All this surrounds me
As I sit here writing poetry

No more slavery
No more blasphemy
No more catastrophe
No more treachery
Just some things that would be nice to see

I’m still contemplating
All the realities
All the fantasies
All the wishful thinking

Progression requires a dive
Desire is needed to thrive
Let’s see improvement arrive
Because hope is still alive

Thaw

As the earth uncovers
I think of all those laid to rest
The loved ones left behind in this adventure
Each day that goes by brings forth yet another test

Those left with you are a gift
Cherish your loved ones and relationships
Don’t let the time slip

We want what we don’t have
But take what we got for granted
Appreciate all that you have obtained
Whether through hard work or charity

Keep your head held high, smile wide
Allow the memories to mold you
This life right now is where we reside
Temporary, so try to enjoy the ride
When it gets tough… remember you’re an overcomer, you can make it through

Salutations

I salute all the woman who are abused
The ones out there feeling used
Those who feel the need to hide
Because they’re still living, denying suicide

Even with the difficulties they now face
When torment and pain elevate at a consistent pace
They are still there enduring it, hoping for a new day
Change is on its way, so don’t be afraid

Move toward the better place that is yours to find
If you want it enough you’ll make it through the grind
You don’t deserve the mistreatment, your purpose is more
Getting through these tough times will allow you to soar

Take the step to open the door
Leave the rocky journey behind
Step out onto a new vibrant shore
The adventure of life where love is fully entwined

Separation

(This was a verse I had written for a song in which I ended up scrapping because I took the song in a different direction)

I remember your scent, your touch
Was somethin’ I wanted forever girl
I loved you so much, so much
You invigorated my mind, it was a thrill

I came to be a better man by your hands
It was a delight, when you were in my sight
I was always glad we were more than just friends
I miss your intuition and your insight

Why did we part ways though, it all felt so real
I never wanted to live another day apart
Your love was all I wanted to feel
How did we get here after such a great start

The memories will be haunting me
I thought we had somethin’ great
You were my sunshine, my everything
I wish I knew the reason, to end this internal debate

Because without your presence I feel lost
I could’ve never imagined this life with you gone

Charade

When it comes to relationships I don’t play games
I don’t think it’s appropriate for any charades
I’m pretty clear with my intentions
However, these days the field doesn’t welcome a gentleman

Hard to go out and remain how I was raised
When everything these days appears to be a game
All kinds of different nuances, nothing is the same
Yet, some of my unique aspects still get praised

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll never change
You’ll never see me become a scumbag
I’ll never fall into the category for the deranged
I’d rather surrender and wave the white flag

All too often I see unhappiness roaming about
Seeing some quality people facing great pains
As I move forward all I seem to view is doubt
When will society again see love experience a gain

So many lies and time spent looking at tape
Why not live a little truth and acquire something great
It’s almost as if this aspect of life needs to be reshaped
Redone… remade… so it can start with a clean slate

Hard to perceive what is to come
We all have free will, the choices of freedom
Can we escape the ridiculous plots we’ve made
Or are the discrepancies to deep to evade
