The Lost

When they tell you that you’re worthless
And that you have no purpose
They aren’t jealous or even over zealous

Just lost

When they belittle your accomplishments
Accusing your progress of having insignificance
They aren’t right, they may possibly be looking for a fight

But still… just lost

Calling you different based on a pigment
Classifying something with ignorance
Doesn’t make them correct no matter their dialect

Just lost

When they try to abuse you
No matter what it is you do
That shows hatred is around and no love is found

So pray for… the lost

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

Interstate

Let me take a moment to teach
Women aren’t meant for you to leech
It doesn’t matter your fantasy
Nobody’s taking responsibility

These dudes unaware of how to stop
They want to blame the cops or their Moms and Pops
Indulged in their latest addiction
With a misuse of various definitions

Our government can’t even interpret its own constitution

Make a stand, hold some hands
Lead people out of the despicable plans
So many on auto-follow
They forget what it’s like not to be hollow

Get filled with knowledge and emotion
Mindless drones stirring up all this commotion
Hard to stop what you can’t see
So open your eyes to all that’s threatening

If you’re free then you can hear the pleas
Many crying out to simply be released
Held against their will
Forced to be silent and still

The media leading you astray
Harassment hasn’t gone away
Problems all around, slavery is here
No ethnic specificity, just to be clear

They’ll take anyone who has the look
Just to further fill their pocket books
If you feel you aren’t effected
Then I guess you have no connections

Treat others how you want to be treated
Don’t leave them behind broken and beaten
Regardless if they’re a friend or stranger
Nobody should have to endure these dangers

Distraction is the simplest form of deterrent
Hoping you won’t realize the lies is the difference
Find a way to acquire resolve
Since many of these problems need to be solved

Ladies

If you knew what I knew, then you’d know you’re beautiful
Hair up, hair down… hair all sorts of colors and styles
Doesn’t matter if your skin is yellow, red, brown, black, or white
Each and every one of you are special in His sight

Forget the imagery that comes with the media
Don’t buy into their absurd propaganda
The best form of beauty is the natural
Makeup and accessories are cool, but isn’t what makes you beautiful

There’s no such thing as too short or too tall
There’s no such thing as too big or too small
Even if you’re sick or struggling you can feel His grace
Never hesitate to let a smile develop upon your face

When you look in the mirror see the success
You made it this far, continue to progress
What is on the inside truly does count
Attitude and emotions can affect a large amount

Don’t let others negativity reflect in your own perspective
If it isn’t kindness and support that they give
The relationship with them may not even be worth it
Avoid abuse of any kind, never give in… you’re not meant to be a victim

Give love, accept love
Because… you are a part of love

Eyes Open

I am frankly quite tired of seeing the negative ways that women are being treated today in our world. Every country has their faults; then again many of those faults are similar to a certain degree. When we as males are looking at the opposite gender for the sole purpose of personal pleasure, there has to be a line drawn. There are far too many women out there dealing with harassment, abuse, and sexual assault. The fact that there are so many different forms of those three descriptions is becoming quite alarming. I can’t tell you how many different women I’ve met in passing that can tell a story of experiencing at least one severe form of negative behavior from a male. In this day and age it seems the characteristics considered as “being a man” are far from what they actually should be.

I am at a point where each day I can’t help but consciously think about all the negative acts that are occurring somewhere that have negative effects on a woman. I see creative campaign after campaign trying to stress the importance of stopping things such as sexual assault, abuse, and harassment only to quickly fade away. To raise awareness on these types of societal problems is always great, but persistence is what should really take place when conducting such an operation. The other issues I see with these types of endeavors are that the people being used to push them don’t utilize the status they have to address more of the underlying problems. There are blatant roots to the development of the mindsets and actions that are being taken, which are being left alone allowing this trend of horrific behaviors to continue.

Many males out there today try to call themselves “men” when in fact they are nothing but cowards. Story after story of domestic violence is being portrayed over various media outlets. There isn’t a day that goes by where someone isn’t being trafficked against their will for means of sexual exploitation, which operations such as those are primarily ran by males. You see time after time marriages and relationships ending due to cheating, dishonesty, or lack of effort all of which are stemming from immoral acts such as lust or addiction. I’m not saying that women aren’t guilty of similar antics when it comes to cheating, dishonesty, violence, harassment, abuse, or lack of effort. What I am saying though is that we as men need to correct our values and treatment of women so they can once again feel comfortable and protected as a whole. Seeing men point the finger at women trying to pass blame rather than take responsibility is another variable where cowardice truly shows. As time has passed it is almost as if women have been forced into replicating certain negative behaviors at times just to survive. As stated prior, the view of women falling primarily in relation to forms of objectivity is out of control.

If you have yet to notice there is a great deal of surprise when an act of kindness is shown these days, no matter what the relationship is with the other person… known or stranger. Much the same the acts of being a gentleman and viewing forms of chivalry or courtship are almost long gone. These days there isn’t much of a distinction between the two genders with which is seeking sexual interaction more within a normal social situation. However, it wasn’t all that long ago where men were widely considered the aggressor when it came to that form of pursuit. With the growing problems that propose sex being of utmost importance there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for things like harassment, abuse, and sexual assault especially with the rapid growth of more and more social media outlets. The voices much like mine that are tired of seeing these mistreatments prosper within societies are being overshadowed by the masses who are simply ignoring the origins of such issues and allowing them to grow. There are many that would rather continue to overlook the problems and allow certain lifestyles to remain under the guise of wrongful definitions rather than spark the necessary change. Not truly knowing the extent to which some of these things are happening I believe is another hindrance for the proper change to take place. Without there being much done to end some of these methods that stem such behavior… it would sadly appear that there will be plenty more lives affected for the worse.

With that said I am continually sorry to those who have gone through or are enduring these terrible experiences within their lives. I am also sorry for those who feel conducting these horrific acts somehow makes them a stronger or more powerful person rather than a scumbag. We as men are meant to protect, love, and respect women NOT harm, disown, and mistreat them.

I may catch a lot of hate
That’s fine, that’s great
It isn’t easy bein’ right
But well worth the fight

You know me, I say only in marriage
With many, they’ll just disparage
That’s fine, I realize difference
Everyone has free will insistence

Regardless we can all agree
There shouldn’t be sex without that respect degree
So many voice how they’ve been used
Or mistreated and at times mentally abused

It’s a vicious cycle this sexual craze
With everyone scramblin’ through this maze
It leaves many in a haze
Focused on one thing as they steadily gaze

I’m tired of hearin’ the complaints
When it was their choice to taint
Their special gift
Through means that are illegitimate

It isn’t so much the whining
As it is the stupidity and timing
Actions speak louder than words
So if you don’t get respect expect the absurd

Just because someone says one thing
Doesn’t mean you should submit willingly
There are more lies to acquire pleasure
Than you will ever be able to measure

If one can’t bother to commit
You can bet their intent isn’t legit
So many aspects to a relationship
Why focus on sex when so much more is relevant

Many these days intertwine before they kiss
If you look at a target, that’s clearly a miss
The switch needs to be flipped
Back to romance, chivalry, and courtship

No need for unwanted pregnancies and disease
Or the development to be in the realm of cheat
So many are depleted and relationships ruined
All because sex was willy nilly, not knowin’ what they’re doin’

If you don’t get respect, why give sex
Somethin’ so special, somethin’ so complex
There’s no reason to sell yourself short
Maintain your integrity, no need for the export

But let’s be real for a second
Many just don’t have self respect
Which leaves cracks in their dignity
Allowin’ for the messes of insanity

No respect… No sex
It’s a simple concept
Even though our views may be different on when
That principle should still apply over and over again

Knelt

Eyes closed, mind open
I fall to my knees with my heart broken
The images of a battered public
Violence and hatred continuin’ to make me sick

Can’t hesitate to settle down and pray
Since we need divine intervention on this day
Yes we’re all human, but all I see are monsters
We should be lovin’, but instead are torturers

Pick up the pace on this change they say
When in reality it’s more destructive than foul play
There are all these hesitations for the conclave
With far too many people enterin’ an early grave

What’s the case, why the tragedies
Within every place, you see countless felonies
I suppose evil has started the race quickly
So there’s no time for too good to go slow and steady

Don’t focus on the popularity
Do what’s actually right through morality
Each time I blink another soul is lost
Is this world really worth the cost

I almost can’t stand to see all that’s empty
The hearts of those who impose all the fallacy
Livin’ in these times it’s a harsh reality
Being as we just can’t move past our fantasy

No one’s perfect, not one country
Not one group, not the one you’re electing
I hold compassion and great sympathy
However the terrible nature continues with the clock ticking

Don’t Bother

[Lyrics to a storylike song I was going to put on the upcoming album project, just didn’t like how the track was turning out]

She looked at me and whispered…

Don’t bother they’re already here
The voices in my head makin’ it all unclear
I’m enclosed and surrounded by all these fears
I just wish this lifestyle would finally disappear

You see, I was walkin’ down the street
And I noticed a girl lookin’ over at me
The look she had wasn’t familiar
It was of curiosity as if I was meant to deliver

I walked up and broke the ice
Typical small talk after saying “Hi”
She then went on to tell me her story
A complete stranger revealin’ her inner most inventory

She expressed how she had been coerced
Charmed into a life where everything got worse
Slipped into one bad habit after another
After so long her emotions didn’t even bother

I was shocked and confused
Not knowin’ much of what to do
I began to reply back with what I thought was right
Little did I know she wasn’t quite ready for any insight

She looked at me and whispered…

Don’t bother they’re already here
The voices in my head makin’ it all unclear
I’m enclosed and surrounded by all these fears
I just wish this lifestyle would finally disappear

So I simply asked do you know what love is
Not the pleasures you’ve measured in ignorance
But the bliss that your heart can reminisce
The feeling of joy and one of purpose

It seems you’re enclosed in the dark
Allowin’ this mess to attack like a shark
Take a deep breath and analyze your past
Because from the sounds of it you don’t want this to last

All that you’ve tried in materials
Can’t be found in the spiritual
It’s time to step away from the physical
To allow your body some time to heal

What has been culminated isn’t what you deserve
You need to abandon the pressure of these pervs
There is someone out there much greater
That didn’t create you to reside in this torture

So take my hand let’s walk together
Get you to a place that can provide some shelter
Transform your life into somethin’ far better
Where you’ll be appreciated for more than just three letters

She again looked at me and whispered…

I’m glad you noticed me sittin’ over here
I was certain you weren’t just another stranger
I believe I’m ready to surpass these fears
So that finally this lifestyle can disappear

Ability

There are those out there physically disabled
Looking different than most, but still mentally capable
Then there are those that look “normal”
But in their head functionality is minimal

The fact of the matter is some lack certain abilities
Each individual still lives within humanity
Special care and treatment are often utilized
But far too often assumptions are made that need to be despised

Discrimination and mistreatment run rampant
It’s a shame to see those who are in need
Get turned away as if their life is absent
It seems there are no limitations for terrible deeds

Wrongful judgments and abuse worldwide
Violence spreading further and further
Horrific acts crossing all borderlines
When will we all act to end this and quit being lurkers

Room

She’s afraid and ashamed
Entrapped and enraged
Held against her will, looking for a change

But she can’t escape
Despite the pain and no gain
Her fear keeps her detained

Watching herself deteriorate
She screams on the inside
She’s irate, held captive in her mind

Looking for a break
Someone or something to aid her
Since she herself feels too weak to bother

Left feeling hopeless and alone
Despite many interactions
She has yet to feel true satisfaction

Where’s hope and love she asks
While left dealing with demeaning tasks
She deserves better, a way to get back on the right track

Far too many out there endure similar
Hidden away from the public eye
Methods varying significantly, all encaged like a prisoner

Sad to know how vast it is
While the majority are taking things for granted
They continue to feel emptiness implanted

Wake up to those that surround you
Symbols and signs constantly shine through
It’s just a matter of noticing them, so progress can ensue
