Sorrows

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

1st Verse:
All these people around the globe
Seeking recognition through likes and follows
What they fail to realize is even those with them
Still feel the sense of emptiness within

I see it all the time those receiving attention
Remaining in a state of indecision
Always craving more than what’s in store
Leaving themselves caught in an infinite chore

Many people there to build up their attitude
Yet they still feel depressed to a high magnitude
It’s all smiles, laughs, and gratitude in sight
But then they admit just how hard it is to fight

It takes a lot of courage to bare it all
And it takes even greater strength to stop the fall

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

2nd Verse:
There are many women victim to addictions
And it isn’t even their volition, but another’s perversion
A sad state of affairs that leaves many in despair
With many feeling too afraid no one cares

We see it all too often harassment and violence
These people don’t deserve to sit in silence
At the same time the root cause is slipping away
As we continue to allow morals to decay

Many think certain approaches are ok
When it really only attaches a bandaid
If you want the cure you need to hit the source
Which for some reason is debated away of course

Look at the masses of survivors reaching out
We need to realize the true evil that needs to be taken down

Hook:
All these feelings dwell
All these emotions swell
I can hardly even tell
What’s bad and what’s well

What will come tomorrow
I hope it’s no longer sorrow

3rd Verse:
It seems there is truly an outbreak
Nobody forgiving themselves for past mistakes
Saturating their current mind state
With elements that they can’t change

What’s done is meant to be learned from
So why are so many limiting their options
Not giving themselves a chance to move forward
Instead deciding failure is what they’ll go toward

It’s heartbreaking knowing so many doubt
Constantly putting themselves down
I wish when I looked out and about
There weren’t so many excruciating frowns

The forecast seems to be cloudy with a chance of rain
As tears are falling while people bind themselves in chains

4th Verse:
People no longer approach marriage with full force
It’s like they find comfort in the notion of divorce
Many broken homes leaving kids stranded
Then they wonder why discipline never landed

Selfish reasons seem to be in every season
All year around there’s relational treason
Cheating has never been so rampant
I don’t know how people can stand it

Thinking they can get away with the act
Or just simply don’t contain any tact
It’s hazardous to the characteristic of trust
Which has always been somewhat of a must

All the dilemmas and problems circling around out there
Is it just me or does anyone else find it strenuous to prepare

Arisen

1st Verse:
Go ahead grab a pen and paper
Write this down and save it for later
We often times fail to see the simplicity
That is existing within our very surroundings

Call it what you want a lack of knowledge
Or being taught incorrectly from K through college
We’ve been numb to the elevation of wrong
Letting it slip through the cracks for far too long

Insensitive to problems that still remain
Since many are far too focused on personal gain
We’re not meant to feel ashamed or be lame
However the actions we’ve taken need to be tamed

There’s a purpose we’re all alive and each unique
If you feel down now it doesn’t mean you won’t peak
There’s a calling card within in each of our minds
Sometimes it just takes a little time

Where do you turn to in crucial moments
Has improvement ever happened, would you even notice

Hook:
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He is arisen now
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He’s here for you now

2nd Verse:
Knock Knock, who’s there… it’s Jesus
Believe it or not He actually needs us
This is for real it’s not a joke
We need to spread His love to more folks

The message is clear as it has always appeared
Ignore the alterations that took place over the years
A relationship isn’t a one way street
We need to do our part to fulfill the needs

There’s one path that leads to satisfaction
And it may not be the most pleasurable plan
But you’ll be suited for a greater experience
It’ll help you overcome any and all situations

So with all the nonsense that comes in our life
The way and the truth will get us through the strife
Think about how words effect your personality
Now imagine the author being pleased with your mentality

It isn’t enough to say we believe
If nothing really changes, did we honestly receive
There’s a reason faith can live on and be seen
It’s through actions like the sacrifice on Calvary

Hook:
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He is arisen now
Let the trumpets sound, alert the crowds
That’s right, He’s here for you now

3rd Verse:
Our journey isn’t a simplistic mission
Many people want it to be easy, they keep wishin’
No algorithm can solve the problems we face
Only the gift from God which is His grace

As we try to improve with each given task
We need to remember the right questions to ask
There’s solace in learning the proper facts
So don’t hesitate to pursue salvation’s tracks

In order to open the treasure you need the key
But you can’t find it if you don’t believe
As we lose loved ones joy can be hard to see
So allow yourself the ability to handle grief

It doesn’t matter who you were or where you’ve been
His arms are open wide for you to come in
Not many can fathom a gift being given
Despite the action having already happened

If you feel lost now you may fear death
Since you aren’t certain what comes in the end
The message has already been depicted
The choice is yours on how your eternity is scripted

Good Book

Intro:
Often times I get asked how can I not do this or that
Why did I choose to do this or that
How or why, why or how
Well here’s a little snippet

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

1st Verse:
Nurture over nature or nature over nurture
The evils are circling around us like vultures
Trying to slip in under the guise of cultures
Many of us don’t realize we’re in torture

All the depression they say that we’re sick
As if there is no other option
I’m sorry that isn’t how life goes
We’re all meant to have some hope

Can’t you see society is on a slippery slope
You offer a little faith and they say nope
Trying to manipulate what it is we feel
Look at the epidemic of sex appeal

It’s like the lottery, trying to find shine
Where has it all gone, this isn’t fine
There’s more questions than answers
But the answers reside in the good word

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

2nd Verse:
People want to be near me or fear me
I appreciate your perspective honestly
But I can’t even define myself accurately
There’s not one of us that lives perfectly

I always try to do what is right
That doesn’t mean that I’m free from blight
Mistakes have been made over the course of life
It’s just the process of learning what to be like

Despite having a rock solid blueprint
There are times when one falls to temptation
Every situation presents a radically different decision
But are we making the ones we can live with

Precision comes in our creation
Our free will is what brings affliction
The choices give us various directions
But real forgiveness comes from one foundation

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

3rd Verse:
They say the mirror holds the best reflection
Yet our thoughts possess the important projection
What it is we think effects our daily regimen
And how we feel determines our actions

If iron sharpens iron then why berate
Our tongue like a sword cuts deeply with hate
Edification and support bring forth fate
Positivity and kindness being spread is always great

Don’t get it twisted love remains
Despite humanity’s efforts to use it in vain
Love is something that can never be slain
So feel free to hop aboard the proper train

We’re destined to succeed because Christ made us free
God is real and still many refuse to believe
Sometimes you need to believe in order to see
There is proof out there for you to receive

Hook:
B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some say it’s all full of stories
It’s true, they reflect the grace of the one in glory

B-I-B-L-E, yeah… that’s the book for me
Some want to question its legitimacy
When it’s plain to see the truths embedded in our history

1st Verse:
Rolling out of bed, a million thoughts in your head
Responsibilities looming with a feeling of dread
Time doesn’t stop so why should you
Rise up to your feet and continue

Ignore the hate that disseminates
Your purpose is far too great
This life you live is a onetime thing
Don’t let problems define your destiny

There’s far too much at stake
To allow yourself to drown in mistakes
Today is a new day to replenish and reorganize
Fuel up your mind and get that passion in your eyes

Any comments being made don’t matter
Choose to improve yourself for the better
If you let yourself get lost in the chatter
That’s not the appropriate pattern

Make your own way and live
Move forward in order to forgive
Stand tall facing every situation
Become your own version of champion

You’re the editor of your narrative
So choose what you wish to experience
Don’t let the free will go to waste
Your life wasn’t meant to be enslaved

There’s a beginning and an end
So let your journey be immense
Throw away the negatives
Get involved with the actual benefits

2nd Verse:
Many of us have been told we can’t do something
Each obstacle is intense, it goes without mentioning
Emotional warfare seems to be prime
Look around it happens all the time

For whatever reason they want us to fail
For another reason they hate when we prevail
Some people just can’t be pleased
They want the chaos to always increase

Just because they bring forth the storm
Doesn’t mean you need to lose form
The energy shouldn’t be sapped
Your potential is never capped

Power is an unusual description
There are many different perceptions
Regardless you should never fold
Show that you have a heart of gold

Invest in the correct action
That is the true way to satisfaction
Realize you’re far greater than any hatred
Let your kindness be inflated

Nothing should chain your progress
No amount of mess or stress
Get to the pinnacle of the dreams you set
Then proceed to another goal you want met

Awake to the reality of success
It is something you can possess
Allow yourself to always believe
Then go out there and achieve

3rd Verse:
It seems that the topic of many conversations
Are the crippling effects of differing depressions
A battle within the mind that affects the outside
Thoughts that can also fully corrupt our insides

You’re victorious with each and every breath
Whatever the worry, it isn’t meant for death
Re-awake to the happiness you once had and be refreshed
Each moment that passes you’re meant to be blessed

Take back control, you can do it
You have the ability to get through it

I’m Fine

1st Verse:
How can you miss someone you’ve never officially met
Some may wonder, but the simple answer is adoption
Many out there on one end or the other
Being the growing child or venturing Mother

In my case it never really bothered me until I was older
The time when understanding escalated without closure
There’s a woman out there who did the best she could
Giving me an opportunity that she thought she couldn’t

Once life reaches a certain point many thoughts arise
All I’ve wanted was to say thank you as I look into her eyes
Chances are that will never happen while I’m here
No way to know if the desire to meet is at all similar

Then with as much time that has passed is she even alive
There’s far too many questions now to cloud my mind
Not knowing certain things that can impact my future days
I just wish she knew my life has excelled in a number of ways

2nd Verse:
If you ever contemplated what life together may have been
Don’t haunt yourself with the thought of those past situations
I’ve been there and it’s definitely not recommended
I’m not going to lie, there’s more rough roads ahead

All my life the blood that flows through my veins
Originated from people that never shared my gains
The ones that have been here have also felt my pain
Nobody has an easy life there is always strain

The issues that have come and gone are done
Time continues forward and we’re all underneath the sun
I have nothing to complain about during my run
I’ve been blessed with many quality relations

The accomplishments and knowledge have come along
Giving me the necessary tools to remain strong
I’ve never felt abandoned or lost at any time
God’s plan has proven to produce the most shine

So you can honestly believe me when I say I’m fine

3rd Verse:
There’s never been a doubt that the decision was right
I just wish to have met you so it could be within your sight
My family has been great providing me with a wonderful life
But the thought of your wellbeing still crosses my mind each night

The possibility of further family impacts a person of passion
I’m just naturally concerned about those with which I’m connected
Just because we’re a mystery to one another we still have genetics
Regardless of what may be love has and always will be represented

Despite the person you may actually be
I know the choice you made reflects decency
Someone that has a compassionate personality
A heart that contains kindness and morality

Whatever place you are living out the rest of your days
I hope that happiness and pleasantness went your way
Wherever our paths take us, just know that I’m grateful
And I hope the loved ones surrounding you now are also thankful

Suffocation

1st Verse:
When I’m locked up faced with struggle
Everyone’s a critic tryin’ to give me trouble
As if the stress of life wasn’t enough
They all want to add their nonsensical stuff

Getting through the days these days
Seems to be an ambitious task to undertake
All eyes on my actions as others experience satisfaction
They think they have everything figured out, all the information

Heaps of responsibilities off in the distance
Many people looking to me for assistance
Advice is something they tend to seek
Then when the tide shifts they hide from me

A barrage of questions always floods the room
With each breath I can feel the wrath of doom
The clock ticks each second getting closer to my death
All the drama around us when will I get to feel a rest

2nd Verse:
My faith has taught me to swim
But there are still times I feel imprisoned
The sense of having a free spirit
Has made it difficult to dodge the darkness

They say that opposites attract
Which is why my light is being attacked
There’s no bushel that can hide the shine
It’s far too strong since it comes from the divine

Hollow thoughts can be a dangerous distraction
Before you know it you become frozen

As the walls continue to close in
My trust needs to remain in Him

With my own ways causin’ this downfall
I need to surrender in order to give my all
The pressure seeping into my skin
My mind is off in all sorts of directions

Too many others showering me with opinions
I just want my freedom to continue to live
Seeking out facts to once again be a benefit
Please allow me to remain separate

“Eternal”

This song was created for entry into a celebration contest hosted by the producer Dansonn who reached the 100K subscriber milestone on his Youtube channel. This track will also be part of a later album project. We had to enter via Youtube, so I figured I’d post that form of media for those of you who may want something visual to see while you listen. Thanks for your time!

Eternal

Listen while you read here

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

Closing:
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

Unto Battle

Listen while you read here

Opening:
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

Opening:
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

Hook:
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

Hook:
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

Hook:
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

Closing:
So what’s under the surface of your name?
