Sunset

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectations yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

Held to a higher standard it’s clear
We get caught up unconsciously in fear
Not quite sure which way to steer
When we have yet to find our appropriate gear

If the end is near, when will it stop
This bubble you’ve built is about to pop
My faith isn’t something that’ll drop
But your view is lacking growth, it has flopped

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectations yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

Lingering issues of feelings from the past
Long last the facts of success and contrast
I’ve never ventured into the aura of relapse
Except when it came to the thought of my loves collapse

Such painful addictions catch the unsuspecting
Little do they know that once would turn into many
Our culture caught up in the realm of judging
When not one gavel should hit since they’re not perfecting

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectations yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

These grudges constantly seen are atrocious
People waving their hands around like it’s hocus pocus
Getting their encouragement from the wrong daily doses
I wonder if they’re aware that they’ve been caught in hypnosis

Subliminal messages are now constantly identified
No longer can the secret societies continue to hide
Conspiracy has long been viewed as a negative
When at times it has exposed an actual perspective

All the things in life we try to get
All the goals that we haven’t met
I’m sorry for not meeting your expectation yet
So pardon me as I drive off into the sunset

Time to look forward so that we can forget any chance of maintaining regret

Voice of Christ

When I first arrived it was like a miracle
A little bundle of joy, something special
Carried throughout the entire pregnancy
By a woman who wasn’t ready for me

She felt it fit to give me life
Rather than forfeit it to the knife
I was protected by good decision
The free will to truly listen

Not sure of her story since
Since I’ve been gone through adoption
Born in Brazil, but raised in Michigan
I doubt I’ll ever see her again

The once hope to meet in Heaven
Seems slim as time continues to tick
With how the world is it’s somewhat unrealistic
However, I pray that at some point she once again listened

Potential/Fear

Want to make a difference, than seize it
Want to see change, you’re green lit
Want your voice heard, than scream it
Want to be taken serious, just mean it

Lies dry, emotions fly
Ill time, faded lines
Cautious actions taken
Yet, you still feel forsaken

Pros and cons, which side are you on
Risk and reward, will you press forward
Cause and effect, what’s your prospect

You lie awake
Thinking about the mistakes
And the pains of heartache

To see change, you must be it
To heal pain, you must seal it

Not knowing what’s next is a mystery
Just don’t let it prevent your delivery

It’s best to pursue your dreams freely

So… do you see what I see

2K

All these eyes on me expecting me to act proper
Held up in their expectations to be a showstopper
I wake up, I get dressed, I get to work… no nonsense
They only see the label though to activate their judgments

How much money do you stack
How much status do you have
“How much” is so sad to quantify the life we have
It doesn’t matter, why bother, look forward… not back

Reality is contemplating what comes next
What the future holds can be complex
It satisfies to experience fantasies
But all the improper notions keep bugging me

I’m not one for temptation nor get caught up in imagery
I’d rather set up, dig deep, and get to know somebody
The following is disparaging what I once knew
Broken the borders of over eighty countries, now what to do

I never settle, what did the pot call the kettle
I don’t get lost in the black, I retool and react
All eyes on me by those closest
Why does what they think even matter if they weren’t chosen

I’m frozen in time, these thoughts… these rhymes
I was told to sing, little did she know I don’t do notes but only flow through time
More emotion, more rage, more angst, more pain
It’s all the same in this game to elevate the skills to not be plain

I write deep to avoid all the shallow
Yeah I’m a guy, but mind my manners
Do you know why, because women matter
If she’s virtuous than she’s more valuable than rubies, just read Proverbs

This excerpt isn’t meant to disturb
But to properly conduct an element of reverb
The butterfly is in full effect when the ripples go out ahead
Skipping stones may skim the surface but still connect

Each time we fly we feel that rush
Our bodies changing as the noise around us slowly begins to hush
As such I’m given pressure to go clutch
Just when I think I’m done and enough is enough there’s more stuff

Silence everywhere, all the clouds floating by
No internet to be distracted by
Just the world below in the view of a bird’s eye
So remind me again of why

Why does someone feel the need to intrude
So focused on what it is I have to do
When did life become about the critics
If you’re expecting perfection you won’t get it

I’m not here to please the human intuition
The ideas that last only come from the spirit
Not everyone shares my perspective and that’s fine
Just don’t get in my face because I’d rather not hear the whine

I dine in, I prefer not to go out
The spotlight isn’t meant for me to spout
My message isn’t my own I’m just a vessel
So when I say it I mean it because Jesus is special

You have to be careful what you represent
Because again, you either get criticism or compliments
Stereotypes are forever here due to the misunderstanding of what’s clear
I steer my journey the best I can, but I’m human and sometimes screw up the plan

My faults are my own no need to hustle
The greatness that can appear subtle
Is that which is gifted as part of the bundle
I’m nobody in the greater picture just another candle
Trying to shine a light that doesn’t get rustled

I’ve said I’ll never get married… yeah, I mean it
Which means I choose virginity forever… yeah, I mean it
Too many women these days with dirty laundry
And I’m simply not the guy to clean it

I’ve tried to pursue ones that I was close to
Just turned out there were secrets of things I don’t do
So I’ve chose to remain alone, it’s how I’m made
It wasn’t easy for these first few decades
To remain astray from all the sexcapades

Five ways, five questions, five morals, five situations
Four women, four relationships, four cultures, four destinations
Three excuses, three reasons, three wishes, three experiences
Two unique, two memories, two distinctions, two replacements
One goal, one mission, one common thread, one vision

I’ve come and gone, I’ve seen much chaos
The life I’ve lead has had few regrets
I was once stuck in the past, a constant collapse
Never did I imagine time to go so fast

A decision to make about some friends
Ones I figured I’d hold dear to the end
Sometimes in order to move forward, old things need to be shed
Facts appear unclear but in the end there’s only one death

I’ve played the game, seen the rules portrayed and changed
People claim to change with the times, they don’t hesitate
Conformity can be ruthless if you’re blind to the brainwashing
I’m held captive at times by the demons toying with my psyche

Telepathic is something I’m not, but I can read the thoughts of the nation
We’re not meant to fully understand nor acquire all the answers to our questions
Some just can’t see what is right in front of them
Some just can’t fathom that they have a purpose beyond comprehension

Never give up you hear it all too often
When the world shuts you down, your confidence softens
It’s natural, but many hide their thoughts of suicide
Putting their life on standby showing falsifications of what really resides in their mind

Ending what seems to be torture here doesn’t equate
You’re opening a new door behind another gate
Don’t be selfish those left behind are now in a struggle
Coordinate your thoughts with others before you crumble
Our weaknesses aren’t meant to make us forever stumble

I heard a story of how someone knew the love of their life
Little did they know what was living inside
Prior to the marriage cancer manifested
Once they found out time was short, they were still meant to be wed

So many stories, so little time
Even if you’re on your death bed
Those around you think losing you would be a crime
So with each thought think about the love instead

It’s always a treat to meet somebody
Though I’m a private person I can be chatty
You ask, I’ll answer
You speak, I’ll inquire

I’ve always learned something from another’s desires
Especially those who charge ahead through the fire
No stopping the determined and diligent
Fighting for what you believe in is strong motivation

Support ideas because they are what last
A message is never dead if it can span generations
Words withstand the test of time
No matter the language, no matter the borderline

Several hundred countries are on this one lone planet
We get caught up in ourselves so often we sometimes forget
We’re not the only ones with problems
A smile goes a long way, show kindness instead of condemnations

We get tied up in the social aspects
Though we lack the integrity to take certain actions
I mentioned how I get looked at, but what if I was a mirror
Would those same people think the same way when the image was clearer

Concern is a tricky subject as it blankets the horizon
An area so broad we can’t find the start or end line
So we cover the first things we see rather than what lies deep
Nobody to blame really as it just seems to be instinct

I clap and applaud all those who remain true
All the influences these days can simply consume you
Various ways to infiltrate your life with a click here and there
Some people over share and some people just don’t care

It’s intense to see what happens when the wrong person gets picked on
Terrorism is an escape to cover the reality of what actually goes on
You see what I see, you breathe what I breathe
From the media to reality there are just so many discrepancies

Solitude isn’t necessarily a bad thing
Wisdom can come from many advisors
As long as those advisors aren’t corrupting
The one truth we seek won’t come from “many”

There are elections to play at a democracy
When it seems candidates already know their placing
These controversies are a constant delicacy
Much like the lives of everyone in every country

Nobody is better than the other
We’re all the same race despite different colors
Ethnicity may vary, but no reason to doubt
That we can all live together and figure things out

Harmony is lacking, hatred is stacking
Elements of nourishment are argued
As more definitions are losing their initial backing
I’ve tried to do some tracking, but my efforts get unglued

Some enjoy the grind, some enjoy the climb
Some seek to find, while some just waste time
The struggle is real, so what’s the deal
Life comes and life goes, are you ready for what lies beyond the windows

An open sky available for all to witness
Even with disabilities there’s no reason for silence
Many ways to communicate, many ways to advocate
Learning is paramount and nobody should feel enslaved

I seldom experience the feeling of tears coming from my eyes
However those times exist as I’m not immune to all the pain underneath our skies
In due time, I’ve realized, it’s all slowly burning
The end is near, but the world will keep turning

We see the physical disperse around us every second
So many different ways to witness destruction
Violence is something that doesn’t escape us
Each night on the news it headlines and it doesn’t surprise us

Have we become fully integrated into the methods of evil
That we can’t decipher what needs to be done to end the upheaval
When will we see the retrieval of hard work that’s ethical
And ignore the temptations of the subliminal

We all eat, we all sleep, we all hope for decency
But still find no time to show respect for humanity
So many seeds sown with greed, it’s sickening
Yet there are still shouts for the essence of equality
If you want the whole piece then how will there ever be peace
Do you truly not see where it is this is all going

Hypocrites are often called phonies
When everyone at one time themselves is guilty
We reserve the right to alter our opinion
Plus we all make mistakes with the more time that’s given

Don’t discredit the methods of which you can’t understand
As again if it needs to be said there is much we can’t fathom
I hold true to the belief that I maintain
Everybody can try, but it won’t be swayed
Not yesterday, not tomorrow, not today

If you truly hold dear that which you defend
You should be able to withstand a few rigorous lessons
If you falter at the first sense of a battle
Then maybe you should reexamine that fence you straddle

I’m not shy to admit I’m gifted
I’m well aware of how I’ve been lifted
You too are the same no matter your name
Despite the emotions of potential shame
There is always positivity out there for you to gain

Addictions categorize a fine line of tragedy
Some see the problem, others see the process
What the actual situation is determines if it really is a calamity
In most cases though even with stress, you can’t mistake a mess

Whether you like it fast or slow
Round and round it all goes
Try not to turn it into a show
The pressure of it all could cause you to explode

Many thrive off tongue in cheek
Thinking it makes them witty
When in hindsight is shows their true intent
One that may or may not be decent

With all these words, you may find them absurd
The category of which isn’t meant to torture
A rhythmic feel, you know the deal
Sometimes there’s thoughts you just can’t conceal
Especially when they begin to swarm
I find courage in many different forms
And I hope you do as well to get through your storms

Broadcast

All these women dealing with pressure
I’m wired up ready to give another lecture
I place blame all around our culture
The leaders, the public, and all those engulfing them in torture

It’s on my conscience every day I breathe
It’s in my dreams every night that I sleep
It’s in my thoughts as if they were personal memories

The notion of hidden secrets is long lost
Once you’re made aware of the situations and the cost
I speak on behalf of the boss
Slavery isn’t why Christ died on the cross

Human trafficking, you’ve heard it once you shouldn’t have to hear it twice
Young kids being snatched up and grabbed to be sold off for a price
Since when did a life have a label for money to satisfy greed
Robbing them a chance at choice and free will for some sort of sick need

Where is this world going
Naked behavior and lustful sins have it all downward spiraling
Where has compassion gone
Each day the sun rises it has become a bleaker and weaker dawn

Hundreds of thousands hidden away kept silent
All to be rooted in experiences that are violent
The pleasure that many seek is what makes them weak
Exploiting humanity is so sickening, we need more willing to set them free

The addictions being fed are what result in so many dead
Drugs, alcohol, and sex shouldn’t be what resides in your head
With all the problems more people need to get involved, but choose to ignore them instead
When given the choice to have a voice, sound the alarm don’t be one who fled

Standing in the gap for someone else is necessary
Without others, what is the meaning of our life’s journey
When you fall you hope to be caught
When you’ve risen you should help someone else who hit rock bottom

Treat others how you want to be treated
It is so simplistic
Let’s rescue all of those who’re being beaten
It is a challenge, but so well worth it

Illusionary

A cloudy sky, it’s cryptic
With everything underneath that’s sick
A world torn apart by storms we can’t predict
Nothing to do with weather, but whether or not humanity risks

Holding steady to a phenomenon
Sticking with the dark horse they rode in on
Like black magic they’re cursed
Not knowing the materials they acquire make them worse

Everything can rot and rust
Before you know it, we’ll all be dust
The physical is subliminal at best
Which is why the enemy wants you to fail the spiritual test

Do you believe in yourself
What drives you to acquire a sense of wealth
Does your dream and goal hinder your health
How are so many allowing ethics and morals to go stealth

The zombie apocalypse is already upon us
Giving free access to be brainwashed without fuss
So many walking blindly after the flesh
No sense of purpose just desire to follow the trends to mesh

Times have changed, but definitions should not
I don’t see much truth and love, it’s like we’ve forgot
Many new ideas have been a blight on society
Going forward with reckless abandon for the slightest notoriety

There are plenty antagonists trying to intrude with their plot twists
I’ve found it hard to truly enjoy any new experience
The surrounding ways of torture have betrayed my confidence
Far too hard to breathe normally while witnessing all the ignorance

All these lemmings jumping off the cliff
Going for the ride of suicide without realizing their gifts
Each shift someone contemplates how much they want to quit
It’s sad that so many think there’s nothing worth preventing it

The secret isn’t under lock and key
It is out in the open for the entire world to see
Just so many choose to look elsewhere
Resulting in their continued misconception that nobody cares
