Concern

Many people think she has it all
Trying to hit her up for the call
Wondering how she could be single
So they continue the efforts to mingle

Their primary concern is the look she presents
When they have no clue what’s going on in her head
Struggling to wake up each day
As the momentum of depression has its way

Still looking pleasant with a beautiful essence
But you can’t always believe the surface suggestion
The realness is what lies beneath the initial impression
So take the time to realize the entirety of a person

She puts on a good show for those around her
Even though her thoughts continue to burn
It’s not easy being at the center of a whirlwind of emotion
Seeing everything spin out of control with so much commotion

As I sit back and view from afar
I just hope she can hear my kind remarks
I hope they can reach the storm she’s in
Before another layer of her confidence thins

Lines

Almost everyone is in a pursuit for cash
Avoiding being cordial and instead brash
Nobody respecting the cold hard facts
That respect and decency are what attracts
Everything is more fun with more friends
So within the pursuit don’t treat them as loose ends
Family first is how we should approach deals
Reflecting the love we all hope to feel

The lines of communication have become blurred
Hesitating to connect due to the constant barrage of slurs
Hatred emphasized nightly through various news
When togetherness is the change we need to see accrue
No matter what you say or what you do
Each of us has had difficult times we’ve been through
Doesn’t matter what you think you once knew
Every day presents something new and a radius of change begins with you

Self

With all the media and text you consume
The final decision of what to believe is up to you
The wisdom and intellect that gets relayed
Ultimately depends on your heart and mind’s decided pathway

Sometimes facts are presented, but plenty is unexplained
Lots of questions are formulated for us to figure out each day
Behind the layers of fear, is your conscience clear
Is this something you can accept, will you maintain self respect

Words and letters swirling like a tornado
Engulfing our thoughts sending chills down our torso
What will determine your next choice
Will you speak up and maintain your own voice

Don’t let the abundance of pressure sink you into depression
Contemplating decision after decision just leaves you left wishin’
The storm shouldn’t determine the outcome
Your presence is needed to be present in every situation

Show yourself that you care and become aware
Wake up to life and don’t imprison yourself in despair

Delicacy

I know that our love hasn’t met
But everything about you is hard to forget
The laugh, the speech, the smile, the meet
All of you has me on the edge of my seat

I can hardly wait each day to experience you
A longing that was gone the last I knew
But you’ve revived that essence of connection
Giving me hope once again to develop certain affection

Delivering a calm in the storm
Your very presence brings forth the warmth
An innocence long lost in this generation
The very elegance of rareness is within your foundation

Every aspect of you is of interest
That’s why this feeling of mine persists
An adventure awaits for us to learn more
I can hardly wait to encounter what’s in store

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

Questions

Many ask, many ponder
Questions questions questions
Many speak, many wonder
Questions questions questions

Whether or not you have the answers
They come along at some point or another
Some are welcomed, while others are a bother
Question after question it seems to be a stressor

Many arise, many fall
Questions questions questions
Many implicate, many stall
Questions questions questions

Whether or not you expect the context
You never know what will come at you next
Life contains many different aspects
Much of which is out of our control that we can’t select

When they come, do you speak truth
When they arrive, do you know what to choose
When they develop, do you have the intelligence
When they apply, do you give the proper emphasis

Questions questions questions… what is your intention

Tied together

There comes a choice for most
It can result in pure elation or make you roast
The time for engagement is the beginning
Many at the time expect nothing but winning

The facts remain people change
Nobody wakes up the next day the same
A ring to symbolize the new connection
But a lifetime ahead to possibly go different directions

Relationships take time to build
So be sure that you maintain the proper will
Because if there is the slightest doubt
There’s no issue with waiting it out

You have to know that both sides are strong
Otherwise the bond can break at the slightest wrong
It takes two to make things work
One side isn’t meant to just be there for perks

If only many more focused on the depths
Perhaps many more marriages wouldn’t meet their deaths
The engagement begins the process of promise
And vows need to represent the definition of honest

Be aware

Don’t let others decide who you are
You aren’t deserving of their pressure
Stay true to you in all you do
Otherwise you may be questioning all you once knew

Don’t take hold to rigorous pain
An addiction to anything can leave you insane
The need you feel is nothing but illusion
You’re better off coming to a different conclusion

Don’t push away those who care
Unless you’re willing to accept the dare
Being left alone in silence you’ll never win
And it’s hard to rekindle trust again

Don’t wonder too far off of the path
Especially if you want a comfortable life to last
The wrath that waits to ambush someone who is lost
Isn’t worth the distraction nor the cost

Entrance

If you’re of a certain belief
Then you’re aware we started with Adam and Eve
If you say we’re animals, how can it be
When we’re the only ones who can understand and fulfill our dreams

Money seems to be the thing that many continue to chase
While believing a lie that we are of a different race
Hair is hair and eyes are eyes, so why should color of skin imply
The need for hate to arise when we can all reproduce and maintain similar insides

Many controversial topics continue to pulsate
Within each and every nation at an alarming rate
The global population identifies with one single number
So why can’t we share one common love for another

The view of responsibility needs to be reconnected
So that we can propel a better agenda to those who are elected
Unity seems to have long been lost
When those claiming peace use violence to express their thoughts

There is a lot yet to overcome
I just hope more light spreads through the dark before our time is done
Every second that passes is another closer to our death bed
So please be extremely aware of the knowledge that enters your head

Gap

All the days
In all the ways
Echoes fade
And Echoes gain

Evil in the prison walls
As on the outside many tears fall
Lives come and lives go
Round and round the issues grow

Positive and negative, one outweighs the other
If we start to see ourselves one in another
Will things change or remain the same
Regardless, we need to stop treating life as a game
