….look at me

…….Look at me

all hardcore

but all heart throb.

all gangster

but all mellow

all tom-boy

but all facial.

Look at me…….

why is it so hard to relay

so hard to put all in display

so hard to put everything on the foray

so hard to speak it all.

I don’t know why

I don’t know how

I just don’t know

just look at me.

…….then she says……

…..and she can write…….and she can bring it out fervently………and she can portray it like a poet……..then she says……….
the band on your arm
bring you warmth and solace and peace
knowing you will be in the arms so lovin
those that will take away the days disbelief
and calm you
mmh
my tortured soul seeks to find the light
that emanates from the glow of a love
so warm and cuddly
takin away the fears of a day with its weary
troubles
with its dark clouds hovering
but from a far
the light glows and gets warmer as i move towards it
coz from it all fears are wiped away
all fears put to rest
from tht light my refuge, my solace, my strong tower
where i can hide
and yet for another day rid the troubles
of a cruel world.

In the still of the night.

In the still of the night, I find peace

I find solace in the fact that I am at ease.

I find rest and comfort in the guidance of His hands

I am complete and still as I get sleep.

Then morning comes and the quest begins

an interlude to pure disbelief (if you want to, maybe)

excitement,distraught feelings and quagmire

total disillusionment and pure enticement

of the whirlwinds of what is called the hustle

but in light of all that, there is exactly that

LIGHT from your smile and laugh

from the band that is in my hand

that illuminates all the worries and makes them dark

translucent and a mirage

of the bigger picture and that’s the end of daylight

for me to come home and be in your hands

in your embrace, in your grasp.

to find peace again, in your warmth

to find solace, in the still of the night.

right after……..

right after……

we would just smile and laugh,

right after…….

we would just sit and stare,

right after…….

we would just walk and tickle,

right after……..

we would just be.

there after…….

sigh and say wow,

beautiful and elegant

you would me wow.

i loved…….

i loved when you were simple you
you were cute warm and everything
hun
i loved you because you were really warm
you were who you were and that’s who I loved
the humble you.
you weren’t trying to be sophisticated
you were really simple
that used to jazz my life very much
i loved looking forward to that

Profit From Failure

The test of a man is the fight he makes,
The grit that he daily shows;
The way he stands on his feet and takes
Fate’s numerous bumps and blows.
A coward can smile when there’s naught to fear,
When nothing his progress bars;
But it takes a man to stand up and cheer
While some other fellow stars.

It isn’t the victory, after all,
But the fight that a brother makes;
The man who, driven against the wall,
Still stands up erect and takes
The blows of fate with his head held high;
Bleeding, and bruised, and pale,
Is the man who’ll win in the by and by,
For he isn’t afraid to fail.

It’s the bumps you get, and the jolts you get,
And the shocks that your courage stands,
The hours of sorrow and vain regret,
The prize that escapes your hands,
That test your mettle and prove your worth;
It isn’t the blows you deal,
But the blows you take on the good old earth,
That show if your stuff is real

May you have..

 

May you have……

Enough happiness to keep you sweet,
Enough trials to keep you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
Enough hope to keep you happy;
Enough failure to keep you humble,
Enough success to keep you eager,
Enough friends to give you comfort,
Enough wealth to meet your needs;
Enough enthusiasm to look forward,
Enough faith to banish depression,
Enough determination to make each day better than yesterday.
