Sacred Friend (originally written estimated year 1989)


 

The News Man Said
Last Year 750 Dolphins
Dead on the eastern shore

Their bodies Deceased
And covered with sores
The source?  Disease.

To hard to ignore
How many more?
Lay suffering on the ocean floor.

Oh, They claim They’ll Breed Once Again.
I think its Hard for them to begin.
Considering the shape the oceans are in.

They have broken the commandment
Murdering a sacred friend
An unforgivable sin.

 

Alive


Running Though
Fields of Wheat
Cold Soft Sand
Beneath My Feet

A Warm Hand
Smiling Eyes
Birds Harmony
Happy Times

Write In Chalk
Houses Along Side
Hot Concrete
Hop Scotch Sign

Black Melting Tar
Tattered Street
Brilliant light
Far from sight

Stand Head Long
Fear from No one
I am Strong
I am Alive

Running Between The Rain Drops
Jumping beyond the Rainbow
Autumn Leaves
Fallen Winter Snow

Apple Orchard
Planted Garden
Quiet Wind
Silent Night

Down the hill
Tremble Chill
Without Rhyme
My Lord Loves me Still

Glass People


Glass People
Perfect in Every way
Look Right though them
Scorn dismay

Mock Them
Anger Rocks Them
Music deep within our souls
Listen to Rock and roll

Slam Dance
Love them
Mock them
Mosh Them

Don’t Care What you say
Holy Spirit is here to stay
Tell me what to believe
My Heart Upon My Sleeve

Heavy Metal punk
Blues & Soul
Never Above
True to my Love

Kiss Them
Sock Them
Trash Them
Rock Them

Say I Can’t Get far
To old Can’t Act
The way You Are
Judge me NOT

The lord Commands
upon the Border
I do STAND
I fear NOT

Rock Them
Mock Them
Protect Them
Mold Them

I choose to Believe
The Lord Forgives
Together His
Music and Soul

My Time
Your Time
Dig My Rhyme
The Lords Time

Some are Simple
Some are Complicated
Some are Loved
Some are Jaded

Love to look at them
Scatter Them
Shatter Them
Perfect Glass People

Crumpled Pages


Stood above
Scorn my love
Scatter books
Shattered Shoved
You Of simple words
So Absurd

Spiteful Smiles
Torn Pages
Crumpled and Tossed
Never replaced
Enjoyed the look upon my face

Crumpled Pieces of paper
Lay ripped apart
Upon the floor
Vacant eyes
Without Once More

Torn and tossed
Pieces of my heart
I must Endure
Thoughts of rage
Bid pure

You can’t Change
Crumpled and Tossed
Ripped and lost
Forgiven not
Pass on perhaps forgotten

The way this feels
As pages burn and peel
Soul hard as steel
Spirit strong
The Lord blesses me

Lords Advocate


The Believers Mock
A Modern Day Prophet
Dare to say…
Not real…
This is how to feel?

Eyes narrow
Make Sorrowful
Shove into the jagged rocks
Upon their ears
Delightful squeals

Laugh and Stone
Dare not shine that Light
Stand alone.
Shared and shone
Thrown down and back
Much better in the shadows of black.

The Unbelievers
Laugh and Cast judgments.
Prefer their poisons to light
Look how Perfect.
Scornful twisted up smiles of delight.

Please beseech
Please allow
Take a bow
Here a crown…
Lovely Style…
Says the Crocodile

Dare steal car…
Never get far
Love where you are?
The lords a Rock Star.

I the Wind


As the Sun Warms
her face
I Blow back her Hair
Like feathers of a wing

I see her frightened eyes
searching everything
I try to sooth her
for I am only the wind

I whip though the palm leaves
with love and they bend toward me

My voice only a hollow howl
though the reeds of the everglades

A crack of a door
Frightened by
the voice of once more

I’m most beautiful
never seen
gentle when kind
Ugly when Mean
I can destroy everything

 

Evolution?


A nation
Afraid to Pray?

Eyes down
in dismay?

Intelligence equals
the higher law?

To believe in god
Considered Small?

Believe
According to thy will?

Believe
According to Men?

No longer a virtue
To say Amen?

I pray for the believer.
I pray for those who have forgotten.

Believe
The promise of the Rainbow.
Keep the Flood Gates
From Crashing Open.

Disbelief
The Flood gates
May no longer stand
With Our beloved
Gods Heart Broken

 

1/1992


Political Rederick
Bushmatizied
Dawn Another day
Claims itself.
Recession raging
Inflation all but Extinguished
Deregulation, Growing world trade
Smashing technological Advances
Crushing Rivals Exploiting Markets
What about the little People?
Being used as pawns
In a great chess game
Sucking Marrow from
Their very bones
Jobless, Hungry
Can’t Buy a Home
Losing one
Are they alone?
