1st Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

It isn’t simple to navigate life’s adventure
Constantly living under pressure
So, many fall in line with certain pleasures

The definitions get skewed as many don’t know what to do

Love and marriage, commitments fallen through
Humanity and race, both of which fit the same shoe
However, nobody pays attention to what they once knew
As hatred and disdain seem to continue

You may ask yourself what exactly is it I should do
Not I as in me, but I as in you

The views of today haven’t been forever
They also don’t belong to the one most clever
For them to last or even become has been a tragedy
One that deserves to see its ending

You can’t ignore it, you seek a love that never ceases
Despite relationships having left you in pieces
The simplest answer to it all though is Jesus

2nd Verse:
Forever, Forever we’ve always been told never say never
Few things actually do last forever
But not many believe in those endeavors

Open your eyes, good and evil have been around
Doesn’t peace seem like a pleasant sound
Seek grace before you enter the ground
You only live once, has your life been found

The risks we take, the lives we make
Nothing ever goes as planned and isn’t the same
We try to create and formulate
All of standards around us that advance our state

I’m talkin’ mental and physical, not geographical
We’re so focused on ourselves instead of the critical
The information we consume needs to be biblical

We can’t make the same mistakes as yesterday
It’s important to learn consistency in this day and age
So many exclaim they want to see change
Then they need to step up and help turn the page

No excuses, don’t hide away or be shy
Christ didn’t sacrifice and rise again to watch us stand by

You want love, forever
You want life, forever
You know the answer

This track was created
This community was created
Creation has been around forever

God Bless

The Truth is

Can click play to listen to the piece as you read

So many ask “What is truth”
How is it you define truth?
Because many out there want to know what truth is
Some say it’s what you experience
While others feel it deals with relationship

The truth is… the truth is

Only one holds the answers and it’s a gift
Not many in this world can fathom it
Nobody seems to appreciate the relevance
So what is it exactly that the truth is

The truth is… the truth is

You want to know my story
You idolize someone else’s glory
It’s not easy living in a world of heresy
It’s not easy leading a life with meaning

We get force fed false idols
A pictured painted to feel entitled
The wrong ways, the wrong signs
The culmination of the end times

These mood swings, these terror rings
The news feeds with celebrities
It’s a conspiracy that’s gleaming
A distraction that is demeaning

Tied up in ethnicities
I’m sorry we’re all humanity
The focus on wealth is a tragedy
The disrespect isn’t encouraging

We all need to take a breath
We all need a stress test
To analyze our hearts intent
What’s in our mind is blatant

If you must see just to believe
Then you’re missing simplicity
All the factors of hypocrisy
Are dragging us down emotionally

The quiet times, the lawful lines
The mistakes should not be enshrined
Is our focus now to entwined
That we’ve lost what’s on the inside

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is I’ve lost touch
Sometimes I feel I’m not enough
I’ve been through some rough stuff
But nothing that God wasn’t in control of

You see I’ve been knocked down, but not out
I’ve been battered and bruised there’s no doubt
However, with that said I’m not dead
So there’s no reason for me to be hanging my head

There’s much worse out in this planet
So I hope you don’t take life for granted
Ready or not one day you’ll see
That perspective can mean everything

There’s homeless and helpless
There’s cognizant and belligerent
There’s informative and ignorance
There’s religion and relationship

So many similarities it truly is uncanny
Depending on the definitions that we see
Determine the people that we will be
Something that should be taken very seriously

If you look back at the past
What is it to you that lasts
There are many things called history
But not many are worth mentioning

Those that are seem to stand out
So why not go about and stand proud
If it’s something you believe then be loud
It can’t be passed on without word of mouth

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is Christ died and rose again
But many don’t think that happened
It’s a sad day and a sad way to be betrayed
To ignore how love was being portrayed

Many argue with science or mathematics
To each their own but it proves creative tactics
In order to create there has to be intelligence
So how can you say there’s no divine design

You developed, I developed
Not on our own accord, but through a process
This society we have now is all a mess
Something we made, which is why many are depressed

This is what happens when we abandon faith
Ignoring the facts just to do things our own way
Nothing will succeed if we turn away
Nothing positive will occur if we don’t change

Many want things to stay the same
Just to further the agenda of their own name
It’s quite a shame to observe
The masses and masses being conquered

The evil within can be rooted out
Only if the desire is there to be found
If one can’t acknowledge they are lost
Then how can they then overcome the cost

Love hasn’t gone away
Love hasn’t gone astray
The reality is love hasn’t changed
The problem is we’ve become deranged

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is I’ll never be married
It is a burden I’m left to carry
No wife, no ring, no kids, no legacy
Something that use to anger me

Now time still ticks and it makes me sick
To know that I’m rare in order to care
About the life I live as a Christian virgin
So unique that it peaks your interest

I open my eyes and plead to the skies
That there are those like me that still exist
Because if there is then maybe I’m wrong
And I can begin to sing a new song

I just know that it isn’t likely
So here I stand with the same plan
To remain loyal to the God that made me
The Lord that has always stuck with me

To avoid the temptations that others absorb
So I can shine His light once out the door
It shouldn’t be a mystery that I am different
Otherwise I am not being legitimate

I am not afraid of what others may say
Not tomorrow, nor today
This is my life as it remains
True to the choice to abstain

Each moment I take in order to pray
I hope that there are others who will be saved
It really pains me to witness the rarity
Of those who value themselves in this humanity

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is too many are focused on getting rich
Not enough of us are focused on the kids
Those worldwide or those of our own cribs
Many misguided all through their adolescence

Being unattended and left babysat by technology
With the media pumping them full of violent tendancies
The news only corresponds to the most epic tragedies
So if they want attention they go on shooting sprees

Many are forgotten and faced with trafficking
Something hidden away from the mainstream
Apparently it isn’t worth it to be educating
Slavery still being dominant in this society

Embedded in their mind are thoughts of pleasure
Sex rules their entertainment nothing else close to measure
What is deemed a choice gives pressure
The problem is the choice they think is right deals with murder

Difference of opinion doesn’t change the facts
Most kids these days don’t think just react
What happened to the notion of cause and effect
Probably deals with the lack of parental consequence

As I said there is too much nonsense
A plethora of wrongful information entering their heads
They’re not getting enough positive attention
People who care enough to give them real direction

Most are treated as if they don’t have a purpose
Being given lies that their lives aren’t worth it
Suicide is still rampant to a great degree
Something you’ll never be able to diagnose medically

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is my parents have been married my whole life
But between us three kids the weddings were five
Marriage these days has taken a dive
With the divorce rate continuing to thrive

I’ve asked myself a thousand times
Where does this world instill their pride
While sin continues to take them on a ride
It leads to a road of destruction as they die

Mistakes and heartache continue the plague
The variables these days are all insane
With emotions sick, my heart beats quick
And the walls around us remain thick

We build them up and tear them down
When we’re not the ones wearing the crown
Many people argue that times have changed
Yet stupidity seems to remain the same

So many attached to what feels right
They ignore the proper matters of insight
A relationship takes time to build
Sex isn’t what makes you fulfilled

Those who use that as a foundation
Find themselves in horrible situations
Their relations never seem to work
Because they miss out on all the other perks

If commitment doesn’t keep you driven
Then you should reevaluate your actual reasons
Because anything that leads to mistreatment
Should be thrown out before you’re both depleted

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is I’m not who I should be
There is plenty that needs improving
My guidelines are found biblically
Which is why I’ve been sacrificing

It’s enticing to see others answer the call
Not even worried about a potential fall
They just take the leap of faith
No questions, no laziness, just pure strength

Their path is straight, not deviated
They march on to see others elated
There’s no time for procrastination
This lifetime needs full attention

There is always room for improvement
No one on this earth is perfect
Trust is hard to come by in these times
Which is why Christ saved our bloodlines

Too many try to run and hide
When the truth is right there to find
Will they seek or will they sink
Each breath takes you closer to the brink

Love won’t ever become extinct
Because God is alive eternally
Alpha Omega beginning and the end
The one who made you should be your best friend

This life won’t ever be easy completely
But there is much to gain from simplicity
Each and every one of us are guilty
Which is why we need grace that is heavenly

The truth is… the truth is

The truth is you’re still alive
So a difference can be made toward what’s right

God Bless!

Unto Battle

Listen while you read here

Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before.

1st Verse:
Like a thief in the night He is coming
No matter how fast or far you’re running
The war wages on in the depths of this planet
Until the time comes for the great judgment

You say you don’t have faith
When it is a built in human trait
Unfortunately your lack of belief
Won’t keep you from the consequences forming

These people are so unforgiving
Trying to pounce on you at all times
The separation of Church and state isn’t fine
Since within these borders both reside

Each time the arguments are used
It is to try to diminish and abuse
The one that holds the correct views
When does the government concede to you

Their service is suppose to be in our favor
When they don’t show any concern that’s proper
It’s getting ridiculous the audacity they show
Acting as if Christ is the one who should go

What do they know, they’re dead in sin
I don’t care where you think life begins
Without alterations life is created
The choice happens prior to conception

All these people blind to the facts
They all don’t want to think just react
We get told that sharing is caring
So I’ll share the biblical message that’s worth blaring

2nd Verse:
Guns blazin’ around every corner
No one is sure when they’ll need cover
The threats today are more unique than ever
Anywhere from kids to respected elders

The battles we face aren’t always seen
That is where people are the most lacking
They are susceptible to what they don’t expect
Which is why spirituality deserves your respect

How can you not witness the proof given
It really is the only reason you’re livin’
How could things formulate without creation
Give me all of your alternate suggestions

It doesn’t matter your explanation
I can guarantee it doesn’t meet expectation
There is always someone out there complainin’
Doesn’t matter the label of the nation

This world is majorly a large sea
The depths of which contain great mystery
Just because there isn’t understanding
Doesn’t mean that it isn’t existing

Much like the translations of history
How can one accept some and not all
Where do you draw the line at learning
Because the bible holds the greatest gift of all

3rd Verse:
It was recently said that love wins
That victory sadly has yet to begin
God is love and love isn’t homosexuality
I’d rather be happy eternally than temporarily

Life here is a mere shell of time
I don’t care your views, we all will die
Reproduce a meaningful legacy
Not one filled with human hypocrisy

The truth is we’re one race with ethnicities
So interracial and racist are used incorrectly
Whatever happened to living in harmony
It seems hatred is breeding over coexisting

I refuse to conform to an idiotic society
The true King will maintain my loyalty
Drugs and sex aren’t needed in my reality
I’ll leave that for those with misguided fantasies

My generation has fell into such tragedy
I feel out of place and from a different time
But that’s why I’m here to present a different gear
Regardless of the changes that we see from year to year

My Name Is

Listen while you read here

There’s a lot in a name
So many meanings to proclaim
A simple form of identity
Something easy for recognizing
Then again it might just be me who feels it’s mesmerizing

My name is Majestic
My name is Integrity
My name is Comforting
My name is Adoring
My name is Harmonious

My name is Miraculous
My name is Awesome
My name is Sensational
My name is Original
My name is Normal

1st Verse:
This life is full of stress
We’re constantly out there getting pressed
Trying to live up to the name we get tested
If we claim faith we now get oppressed

It doesn’t make much sense
That love is taking a backseat
Because so many want to be redefining
Power is held within one true King

Everybody is caught up in their own fling
All the nonsense out there negating the rings
I remember a time when it was joy that would sing
Instead of these activities that breed treachery

If you uphold a sense of morality
You get looked at ever so differently
There is no longer much formal respect
Everyone is too busy ignoring discipline

So many feel entitled for reasons unknown
Their faces too busy buried in their phones
Which text message was it that gave you life
Which selfie provided shelter for you and your wife

All the distractions denying you the name
All the factors that bring upon further shame
We still haven’t figured out life isn’t a game
Now we just need to take hold of some responsibility

My name is Majestic
My name is Integrity
My name is Comforting
My name is Adoring
My name is Harmonious

My name is Miraculous
My name is Awesome
My name is Sensational
My name is Original
My name is Normal

2nd Verse:
Everyone strives to be the best
When the best they can be is second
There will always be someone greater
It’s a fool’s errand to chase after

We have the power to heal
We can also move mountains
But we’re stuck in a raw deal
Trying to exercise deadly sins

Stepping away from the shade of yesterday
Can be tricky if done incorrectly
The past formulates the present
And the future is a plan of the present

If you want to stay relevant
Then by all means get cognitive
Start by making some well thought out decisions
Since there are indeed consequences

Everyone else’s actions don’t need to be duplicated
There is only one you who needs rejuvenation
Time will tell if all will be well
In the meantime though it’s time to break out of the shell

Dig deep to find the definition
Because intelligence is ideal for progression
Wisdom comes from that of Heaven
So let the name of Jesus be reflected

My name is Majestic
My name is Integrity
My name is Comforting
My name is Adoring
My name is Harmonious

My name is Miraculous
My name is Awesome
My name is Sensational
My name is Original
My name is Normal

So what’s under the surface of your name?


Listen while you read here

A wonderful woman by the name of Cinthya after listenin’ to one of my tracks told me she wanted to hear more rage and passion within my voice so this one’s for her…

1st Verse:
I’m a lover not a fighter, but have a temper
Toward anyone who disrespects her
And by her I mean all women of humanity
There isn’t a reason to be demeaning

Thou shall not kill is what it says in the commandments
But I could just break the necks of all the men
Who think they can rape, molest, and enslave
You shouldn’t hurt the gift that was made from our rib and some dirt

There’s too much value in women to see this happenin’
Why must it be this way to see further lack of equality
You want to step to me for being a gentleman
Then just know I’ll fight to the death for them

I’m not scared to throw hands if you force the issue
These women deserve a better class of man
Someone who will love and protect
Instead of disrespect and harass

I hear a round of applause off in the distance
Messages like this take persistence
Since so many these days lack the intelligence
To witness what love truly is

I can’t believe what it is I’m seeing on the daily
Hard enough to swallow the dosage the media prescribes
Causing further doubt in each of their minds
Why must it be this way, why can’t we all choose change

They call me the charm alarm
Due to encouraging without harm
I inspire those who wish to prosper
The ones thinking they’re not too proper

Sometimes all it takes is one
Someone to nudge you in the right direction
I hate to see my gender fallin’ flat
When will we see real men come back

It’s a shame that romance has lost it’s name
So many games these days nothin’ is the same
Instead of holdin’ hands we see other charades
When was it simplicity officially got locked up in chains

Talking point:
You might say “Pure what if I get laughed at for waiting till I’m married, do you admit your virginity publicly?”
or “What if they make fun of me for not watching pornography?”

All I can say is that having honor and integrity
Outweigh anything that you can gain from the pressures of humanity
Being someone unique utilizing morality is much more impressive
Just because others want you to submit doesn’t mean you should
Whoever the woman is you owe her a full commitment before pleasure
Learning everything about her in the process to show her actual respect
Simple as that, case closed

They call me the charm alarm
Due to encouraging without harm
I inspire those who wish to prosper
The ones thinking they’re not too proper

Sometimes all it takes is one
Someone to nudge you in the right direction
I hate to see my gender fallin’ flat
When will we see real men come back

It’s a shame that romance has lost it’s name
So many games these days nothin’ is the same
Instead of holdin’ hands we see other charades
When was it simplicity officially got locked up in chains

They say chivalry is dead
Well I’m a man raised to revive it
Courtship is a lost art
Though it’s never too late to start

Show women that you have a heart
Never depart if you haven’t complimented her

Each day that passes by
All the women are asking many questions of why
How about we finally give them some answers
Show them that we can be legit men instead of a typical guy

3rd Verse:
Break down the door of mediocrity
Push away the problems of yesterday
Wake up to the mistakes that you’ve made
And become a better version of yourself today

The interactions that you meet going forward
Should indicate that you are done with torture
The words that you say and actions that you take
Need to be meaningful and not in vain

Beauty is held within all aspects of a woman
So you should recognize that again and again
Don’t hesitate any longer let the transition begin
There is never a downfall to being a gentleman

Help them all to reach their dreams
Never try to lower their self esteem

Free Your Mind

Listen while you read here

Intro/1st Verse:
Where has the time gone
The clock seems to fly
It has become a blur behind the eyes

My good friend and I always talked about it
Couldn’t help but constantly notice it
We had similar mind sets
But the facts remained time wasn’t an asset

We could acknowledge it
We could predict it
We just never could stop it
The enemy of us all doesn’t quit

Only one speed that it sees
You move with it or you get left reeling
I know you know the feeling
There’s just not enough hours in a day
And life just goes by too quick they say

Take a deep breath and wake up yet again
How will we overcome this elevation
Step away from the technology
Which seems to have become the new reality

All it produces is a mind full of fantasy
The lack of independence is killing me
We need a better development for our society
To latch on to something we actual integrity

You know I’m not kidding
I’m speaking with pinpoint accuracy
Time is of the essence for any kind of success
Leave the mess of the stress to let your mind find progress

Bridge/2nd Verse:
Some people think you need drugs or alcohol
The fact is you just need yourself to free your mind
Insead of being locked up in problematic thoughts
Open the door to solutions so you’re not left distraught
Be remembered as someone who fought

Don’t lie still and let go of your free will
The lives we lead are meant for adventuring
It isn’t about the end result, but the journey
We all have an end, but different methods of going

Never quit, never give in to distraction
Focus on the triumph over the addictions
It is possible and feels incredible
The freedom that you seek is beautiful

So many these days are skeptical
Clinging to their ideals they think are normal
I am here to formally dismiss the claims
Anything that brings you pain should be met with disdain

For you are meant to bring hope and prosper
Ignore those that try to impede or hinder
Each day that you see is meant to be lived
So please oh please never forfeit

Never forget the purpose you maintain
Life isn’t to be treated as a game
Mind over matter is often said
But only God Himself can bring forth the greatest benefits

3rd Verse:
Don’t get tied up in this prison
Step up to proceed on the right mission
You don’t want to be left wishin’
That you had done somethin’ different

Time flies, it never slows
So act now before it is time to go
The seconds are precious so show benevolence
Treat others how you want to be treated

Our culture might be split
But we’re united as humans
We all have something in common
So let’s focus on the positives

With each interaction let’s try to edify
Stop asking the question of why
Instead shine bright like the sky
Providing answers like Christ up high

Too Much

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
It’s been a long time since I’ve been happy
I’ve been through dark times with no rhymes
Easily the most treacherous line of thoughts for my mind
Expression without bein’ sappy

I’ve said it once I’ll say it again
I’m the last standing virgin
Head held high avoiding the temptations
Walking the narrow path that leads to life everlastin’

I’ve been attacked from front to back
Tryin’ to mold myself after the only one who has my back
I don’t aim to please or aim to teach
But to get each and every one of you thinking

This journey takes patience and time
Resulting in the fact that it is temporary
It isn’t meant to be scary
The life we live should reflect joy

It isn’t about the cash or toys
But the elements of interaction
Don’t get too tired chasing satisfaction
There is more to do in order to progress

Don’t leave your life in a mess
It’s a waste of time to stress
I’ve seen death and am not afraid
If you choose to lean on Him though, it’ll all be ok

2nd Verse:
Each time there’s a new sign
I ponder the meaning of the divine
I signed up for this
A soldier to help bring light through the darkness

I’m not sold on all this newness
The sins of many who proclaim bliss
I’ve been through many experiences
I don’t need to add to my problems

Advancement is the only option
Enough of the regression
No other human is someone’s possession
Regrets aren’t meant to keep you stagnant

Don’t think you’re worthless
Everyone has hope to access
Your one of a kind unique prowess
Is just what this world needs to learn about forgiveness

I’ve been set free through repentance
The aroma of this Earth now has a new fragrance
The flesh will fade, but never the spirit
Eternity is a real thing, so quit denying

Faith in humanity will leave you empty
The temporary can’t keep you happy
There’s greater emotion beyond understanding
These feelings are there to witness for everybody

Without Wings

Listen while you read here

We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

1st Verse:
Though we’ve never had the pleasure
I know that you’re one of my treasures
I’ve never gotten to look you in the eyes
All that time ago now, it escapes my mind

There once was a time we grew together
I’ve never had a chance to hear your laughter
I wasn’t able to ever say a proper thank you
Not many know about us, but I sure do

You carried me through a pregnancy
All those months prior to my infancy
You allowed me to grow unharmed
And I’m not sure I’ve ever felt the warmth of your arms

They say that angels roam amongst the stars
But then there are those on this Earth much like you are
Even though I may not know how you look
The beauty of your choice is enough in my book

I imagine there are times you’re left wondering
What it is that may have happened to me
God has blessed me with a great family
So there isn’t a need for you to worry

You gave me the opportunity to breathe
Now I’m able to write these words for many
Wherever you are I hope that you’re great
And I hope to meet you again someday, I can hardly wait

We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

2nd Verse:
They call them my guardians
I call them my parents, my loved ones
The ones who raised me as a gentleman
The ones who cared enough to make the investment

It isn’t hard to identify who impacts your life
Those who love you unconditionally through the strife
I’ve been blessed, I’ll say it again and again
It never gets old because God’s not dead

They’ve been there to instill principles
They taught me valuing a woman wasn’t miniscule
The sacrifices they’ve made have paved the way
I’m forever grateful that they chose me that day

Way back when I was a hemisphere away
There wasn’t any fear for them that day
They flew the entirety to come and get me
A baby they wanted from another country

It’s been a great journey in my opinion
Because they’ve lived out what they said
It wasn’t hard to see God through their actions
Always there to give me their attention

I couldn’t have done better if I had picked
That is why I’m glad that God did it
No doubt in my mind that my parents are mine
In this life we live now and on into the divine

We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

Who is it that has impacted you the most
Have you told them you loved them today
I suggest you get on that if you haven’t

Don’t be afraid to be that impact on someone else’s life
Be for others what your loved ones were for you
There are angels all around, God Bless

We have all needed comforting
We have all needed a calming
We have all needed guarding
We have all needed problem solving

The angels up above look down with love
And those that are with us who deliver hugs
You know exactly what it is I’m saying
You might think they’re missing but there’s some without wings

We walk amongst the precious
Kindness for all of us to witness
Let the stories be known
That grace can indeed be shown

If I Could

Listen while you read here

1st Verse:
I always thought I had the answers
But found there is wisdom in having many advisors
Finding the right people is the key
God has placed them right in front of me

Each one has been a true blessing
Being aware at all times helps the learning
The ability to listen is often ignored
Analyzing the surroundings can be a chore

However, dreams can’t come true
If you aren’t capable of pushing through
Getting through all the experiences you face
With or without the ability to keep up with their pace

Life isn’t always about the race
Which is why I’ve chosen grace
I needed forgiveness for the times I’ve slacked
The times I’ve held regret looking back

Keeping myself hesitant rather than ready
Wasn’t in the best interest for anybody
Waking up to the ring and answering the call
Are two different things, but important to avoid the fall

I haven’t always said the right things
I haven’t always been encouraging
I’ve failed at times through various mistakes
Which is why I need Christ to walk with me each day

In order to get through the pains
In order to get through the heartache
There is only one source for the correct course
Which is why I’ll stay silent so I can hear from the Lord

It’s not always easy to make the right choice
To echo the correct sentiments with your voice
The task at hand is great to endure
So with our efforts we need to be pure

2nd Verse:
Sometimes when I pray I don’t know what to say
Due to there being so much in this world that isn’t ok
A lot of people out there that just act without facts
They choose to do evil and have no tact

So many activities leaving me in uncertainty
Not for the faith that I uphold, but for humanity
Where has it all gone wrong over the years
Will there ever be a time when we’re in the clear here

I think that the most drastic event will take place
Before we once again experience a true form of grace
There is always hope for change to happen each day
But the way we’re operating seems it will be in dismay

I’m not one to predict the future
I just know all the wrong that is within our culture
It never ceases to amaze me the hate that is out there
When will the world choose to leave behind despair

Everybody seems to be seeking answers
But the sources they are choosing leave them in a blur
They refuse to listen to reason and truth
Leaving behind the lessons of their youth

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

You too can be saved
Everyone who seeks shall find
His love surpasses all understanding
I guarantee it will be the best choice you’ve ever made


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
