Uncertainty

Everyone’s heart achin’ as the outcome looks shakin’
When one suffers, it hits us all the same
There is always an end in sight, that’s not mistaken
But you never want to see someone go in pain

Centered in the dilemma of what life is
Diseases that seem to avoid a solidified cure
An unfortunate reality when it strikes like this
Putting tragedy into the present to obstruct the future

All the memories swirl as to what was in the past
Leading up to these events it all seems mad
Time seems to continue to go by extremely fast
There doesn’t seem to be a pause, not even a tad

Everything in motion, the end comes closer
One of the sad realities that becomes known
With more loss comes more wisdom as you grow older
It just never gets any easier from what these experiences have shown

Memoirs

Thinking over the memoirs
As I look up into the stars
I feel all the old scars
With hope still shining afar

All the tragedy, insanity, and calamity
With each breath there’s intensity
Draining quickly all my energy
What’s left of me is in jeopardy

What this world does is blasphemous
And the ways of it aren’t at all prestigious
The declarations being made aren’t religious
Because most claiming it are instead venomous

The destruction is of our own doing
Hatred instead of love is accruing
That pressure of us lost in our own things
Is what’s keeping us from the grace we should be experiencing

Ending

1st Verse:
Some say that the end is near
How can that picture ever be clear
Today is the end for many lives
It’s also the time for many to rise

A battle in the forefront and background
We hear the call in almost every sound
An agenda is always presented with news
Or even in the trenches of your own crew

They’ve laid claim that it’s an effect of a butterfly
Rippling like water throughout your life, but why
The choices we make impact the breath we take
So don’t let these problems become an outbreak

Many wonder the source of discourse
Since there’s all this violence with no remorse
Trying to understand it all can be a drain
And it’s rather impossible to predict the end with our own brain

Hook:
There are many endings
With nothing being an absolute
There are many beginnings
With nothing guaranteed for revenue

There’s always an alternative to the outcome
Finding the correct path can be hard for some
Focusing on the death or finality
Isn’t wise for the sake of our vitality

Many struggle, many suffer
Time doesn’t wait for life to buffer
We’re constantly streaming with our heart beating
Our minds are meant for creating not destructing

2nd Verse:
Look at the rates of suicide
It’s quite literally hard to hide
People falling at an alarming rate
Doesn’t matter their lifestyle or age

All access means more to deal with
The social aspects of torment are no myth
24/7 people try to infiltrate using these connections
As a result people are giving in due to no protection

They feel as if their life is no longer worth it
Because they don’t believe in a sense of purpose
It’s hard to swallow and hard to take
The tragedies piling up with the heartbreak

People want to disregard the lifeguard
When He is clearly the only effective armor
Now isn’t the time to deflect, but collect
Accept the facts and show the respect

Hook:
There are many endings
With nothing being an absolute
There are many beginnings
With nothing guaranteed for revenue

There’s always an alternative to the outcome
Finding the correct path can be hard for some
Focusing on the death or finality
Isn’t wise for the sake of our vitality

Many struggle, many suffer
Time doesn’t wait for life to buffer
We’re constantly streaming with our heart beating
Our minds are meant for creating not destructing

3rd Verse:
What is the legacy you’re trying to build
Have you been someone who aims to fulfill
What about those you witness being grilled
Are you showing compassion or just allowing them to be killed

We’re all sharing this planet’s fresh air
Why can’t love now become declared
Separation leads us to being in ruins
While togetherness strengthens our foundations

Hook:
There are many endings
With nothing being an absolute
There are many beginnings
With nothing guaranteed for revenue

There’s always an alternative to the outcome
Finding the correct path can be hard for some
Focusing on the death or finality
Isn’t wise for the sake of our vitality

Many struggle, many suffer
Time doesn’t wait for life to buffer
We’re constantly streaming with our heart beating
Our minds are meant for creating not destructing

Decades

Three vastly different journeys
Each life is something truly unique
Two approaching and one beginning
The third and fourth with plenty of planning

One has started his third set
The other approaching that same set
Myself, I’m ending the era of the twenties
Approaching the years that will now begin with a three

My two oldest nephews, one who is twenty the other eighteen
So close in age, but experiencing vastly different scenes
As the one begins this next set of ten, we’ll see if he truly is a gentlemen
The other nearing that realm of adulthood has a lot of choices waiting ahead

Three lives in different significant states
All with sights on the future ahead to be great
We all have a link to which we can relate
However the way we carry ourselves differs on this date

Each of us encountering a difference in circumstance
With our lives having significantly different plans
Everyone experiences this with those they hold dear
As you hope the best for them as well as yourself each and every year

They say these years are still considered young
However what ultimately develops before it’s all said and done
Comes from these years that society tries to paint are for fun
Importance of improving our knowledge should be at the forefront to obtain further wisdom

The lives ahead for each of us
Need to be lived in a way that’s a plus
The negativity all around is more than enough
We three will hopefully continue to rise above

Signify

There are times when you have plans
Wondering if what you’re thinking can be executed by your hands
Those thoughts of doubt and excitement sway this way and that
Then comes along a sign that signifies you need to step up to bat

When life throws you curves you need to remain on a straight pathway
Distraction looms off in the peripherals with the doubts of yesterday
Time only moves in one direction, so should your progress as it gets tested
Having lofty goals or high expectations of yourself isn’t necessarily negative

You just have to know how to handle the disappointments
Failure is bound to happen at a given interval, but that’s relevance
All aspects of the journey are of utmost importance
You just have to be willing to make the adjustments

Don’t hesitate to turn what’s sad to glad
Being able to always decipher the good from the bad
Because that which makes you mad isn’t viable
And not everyone close to you is someone reliable

Those closest can tend to be the biggest deterrents
And you don’t ever want to truly be selfish
But sometimes you need some alone time to improve your methods
When that time comes execute at every given second

Analyze all of the relationships
All of the hypocrites
All of the intelligence
And all of the significance

Which is greater your fun or passion
Your greed or compassion
Your pleasure or progress
Your money or success

Whatever you think should come next
Don’t hesitate to put your efforts to the test
Allow yourself a chance to fulfill the plan
Because if not for you it may never have the legs to stand

Dimension

It’s hard to live out the future
When you’re stuck in the past
Hoping to elude the torture
You hold onto the goodness, hoping it lasts

All the memories you recollect
Reminiscing about love and joy
Smiling ear to ear as you reflect
Wishing one day those times could redeploy

Each day brings a challenge
Some we least expect
Our temperament remains unbalanced
When our mind drifts from the present

Fixate on the importance of today
Be the change you wish to see
Lock into a goal without delay
So you can once again become happy

Ten Years

Hard to believe it’s been ten years
I remember being asked where I saw myself in five
Back then it all seemed so clear
I achieved my goal of graduating college to thrive
Little did I know I’d get ill before a career

Flash forward to now, six years after
My oldest nephew is finishing high school and my health is improved
I’m proud to see him finish up this chapter
He’s had some rough times, but he’s still pushing through

This time of reflection to see where I once was
To see now where he is, it’s all a whirlwind
Because the focus will be now on what he does
As my role is reversed from being the uncertain kid, to the adult providing direction

He has had his ups and downs personally
While dealing with hardships and trials
It hasn’t been an easy task for him to experience all the adversity
But he has managed to progress, giving the rest of us all smiles

I’ve been proud to be an Uncle since his birth
It’s given me more purpose and self worth
It’s been a title I’ve had for the majority of my time
And it isn’t one I ever plan to leave behind

Soon his grade school experience comes to an end
Ten years after mine had from the same establishment
Such a unique time to be involved in this celebration
I hope he too will continue to push forward toward a purposeful destination

Disparity

I feel as if I’m missing something
You said one thing, but act another
What is it that you’re really meaning
Am I distant from you or close like a brother

Confused with the notion in which you speak
Excited and love to see me, but have plans deterring
Parasitic it seems to me, like a one way street
Not much reciprocation in the effort of the meet we’re referring

I’m closed up at the aspect of going forward
The future holds uncertainty and our past plenty
What does the present define if there isn’t much to look toward
Should we call it quits as we part ways or keep interacting

The answers remain a mystery
The communication a conspiracy
The time falling away empty
The stress of it all unworthy

Would enjoy some clarity
Would appreciate some specificity
Would love some solidarity
Would like if your words and actions had some similarity

Analysis can be tricky
Hard to receive anything other than honesty
Considering I’ve been nothing but truth giving
I know the heart and mind are separate, but where’s the unity

Engineer

The end is near
So many in fear
Nothing made clear
All kinds of smear
What do you hear
Where’s the cheer
Are you ok my dear
What about this year
Will change premiere
Uncertainty begins to appear
Morality needs to adhere
Put life in the right gear
As we approach the final frontier
Build what is between your ears
Look out over the pier
Encourage your peers
Make love a career
Please continue to persevere
Try to be sincere
Whether you volunteer
Or become a pioneer
Complex is this sphere
Don’t let doubt interfere
Soon this’ll all disappear
So which direction will you steer

Finer Times

I laid back and said things would be new
So far all of that simply was untrue
Holding myself back from the attack
I can’t seem to let go of the feedback

An inner struggle of family and future
Only one other can judge this adventure
The relationship that gives me all of the hope
Is the one I seem to be ignoring the most

I can’t explain the pathway
Because I know there’ll be better days
My faith hasn’t been lost
But my drive has faded at a detrimental cost

Why can it be that I’m not who I use to be
Where can I find him, so I can get back to the easy
Open heart, open mind, pressing on to take the dive
Because I was never afraid, but now I hesitate
When that should never ever be the case

If I look up or listen close
All the answers reveal themselves going down this slope
It’s a complex world and a complex time
With a focus on Christ I know it’ll all be fine

But where is it that my attention should reside
Where am I best suited to improve lives
It’s hard to say, it’s hard to see
The reason I was created was to be…

I still don’t know, but I care
I wish the call would come, so I could get there
