Disjointed

It’s quiet time in my heart
An unfamiliar feeling even from the start
Back in the times where memory doesn’t exist
I imagine it was still filled with bliss

Questions continue to arise
With no sense of answer in sight
My mind races intelligibly
But the rotation of this world keeps me away from assembly

Electricity seems to carry a greater power
Everyone connected to technology hour by hour
Various resources at our finger tips
Still not many thinking for themselves, just instead accept ignorance

My pulse still shows mountains to climb and valleys to fall
I’ve seen so many things, but I doubt I’ve seen them all
I’ve heard so many things, but I doubt I’ve heard enough
With each passing second there is someone out there whose life is rough

Actions are being taken causing various effects
A lone man here with so much to say, but why do so if it doesn’t protect
A predator lies in wait for its prey
However, I’ve chosen to rest in silence and pray

There’s strength in numbers, it’s no false tale
So why do we separate the togetherness to make us frail

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

Action

An imagination is a powerful thing
So many have dreams they’re replicating
Others lay still in defeat
Left waiting patiently to do something

In this land of opportunity
What is it that we mostly see
Is it success or failure
So much nonsense to endure

Many choices lead to many pathways
Which is it you’re choosing today
One can lead to happiness
The other to sadness
Not knowing which, is the delayed progress
Pondering decisions can leave one left wishin’

Many reminders of only living once
Many times people get caught up in stunts
The key is not to be afraid
Own up to the choices you ultimately make
Considering with each day, there can be change

Learning is the catalyst
Knowledge needs to be the protagonist
You are the essence
So don’t be afraid to make a difference

Contributions

It’s a necessary situation
To ponder your contributions
Soliciting selfishness or selfless inclusion
There are varying degrees of personal infusions

What makes you unique
When did you reach your peak
Are you rough edged or smooth and sleek

Each experiment has a hypothesis
Are your priorities in order or do you lack confidence
Too many these days caught up in belligerence
So their special qualities aren’t truly be experienced

Time and time again you hear about interventions
Trying to persuade someone to leave an addiction
All that time wasted within the distractions
Leaves one wondering what could’ve happened

The time it takes to break
Is minuscule, given all the hate
Many try to escape
But running away doesn’t provide positive change

So what grinds your gears
Taking action could help prevent fear
If not this year, then when
Because your effort should always reflect one-hundred percent

Standby

A moment in time that passes us by
We still sit in silence with wonders of why
Can we ever grasp the moment, will we even try
Or will we watch it evaporate up into the sky
Remnants of the past creep in our head, so sly
When the future is the issue that makes us sigh
Enough of the pathway that makes us shy
Provide a little insight so others don’t cry
There’s a fine line each time we reply
With expression not always translating correctly from our minds eye
Our compassion needs to apply
Since this world has focused more on what it can buy
The emotions that make us unique are what need to fly
So the morality that is left doesn’t completely die
When we continue to look out and spy
The madness that is seen isn’t short on supply
Which is why change is needed, so all of us don’t fry

Feed

Our mind is a vast place
In this life, we’re not limited space
The brain yearns to learn with much hunger
Give it something worthwhile to ponder

Don’t withhold information
Utilize the capabilities within
Provide meaningful intelligence for further expansion
Try not to end the flow of progression

It is important to continue to broaden our horizons
The best way is through more education
Hit the books or hit the streets
Life lessons can be experienced wherever you please

Just don’t sell yourself short
Quit limiting your potential
The methods are out there for support
Growth after all is a priority that is quite essential

Feed your mind with quality over quantity
Your life and body will thank you plenty
Serenity and stress continue to battle in our brain activity
What transpires daily, will echo where you’d like to see humanity

The Act

All the fans caught up with their favorite acts
But what is it that they really get back?
It seems all of them act a fool to attract the fools
Goin’ around laughin at the fact they lack the tools

See a lot of times it seems they just want luxury
Not only the money from your wallet, but pure envy
It’s strange these days what passes for supposed good music
I know that I can hardly stand to listen to it

What sense of accomplishment do you think they get?
How is it that they instead of you deserve any of it
You’ve supported their career, which they live in fear
Cause if it got taken away, where do they get the cheers?

See thousands of us everyday live in poverty
With the hundreds of them living famously
Some take it the extra step to give back
But in all reality how often is that

Mainstream acts lose themselves in this new allure
Where they want more money and materials, go figure
It’s not about the art and the community that supports
It’s the selfish greed that feeds their need to have no retort

Success is a privilege that comes with great responsibility
If you’re not for making a positive impact substantially
Then why is it you want to be in the public eye so badly
Why is it many of them don’t want relations, but still notoriety

A lot of it makes no sense when you really look at it
The land of the famous appears all attractive
Still many say once it’s acquired they just can’t stand it
So which is it, what’s their reasons or perspectives

It seems it all just falls in line with trying to find an identity
Something they’ve lacked along in their journey’s
So a façade occurs to hide their personal insanity
All the while in hot pursuit of hiding their better qualities

Cause when it comes to the mainstream it appears as slavery
Not really the same people they once were in the beginning
As if they were stripped their rights of origin
During this course of career engulfing them in confusion
