is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words
Shipwreck of Time
Time in a bottle for us to keep for eternity…
Sailing on through life fighting off the heaviness of the night, seeking
What is wrong or right how do we handle the gloom of the past, life racing so fast what is truly Everlast?
In the depths of dark waters buried so deep the shipwreck of sorrow weeps…
Cold and lonely this inner bilge desolate rooms water filled.
Creaking and cracking on the ocean floor… waves of emotion keep you from shore.
In the depths of hell with concrete feet the heaviness so strong total defeat!
Crawling and creeping your way, trying to make it through each passing day…
Internal strength will give you the might -- as long as your crawling defeating the night…
Up the stairs to the bow is your place to be, but how do you get there hoping to be free…
You twist – You pull – with all that you got -- hearing those smoke stacks bellow and pop…
Guided by the sounds of true fight -- your intuitive guidance calling the rights!
Making your way to the front of the bow, your victory spot – smooth sailing now.
Always move forward are the words that we hear, our spiritual soul is always
No more bleak and dismal emptiness for you – A life warrior true and true…
Oceans so blue and shining so bright you have made it out of the darkness
Living on the edge of past and present, teetering
On all that is wrong and right….
Looking to the past for answers of an uncertain
Future untold… What will my path truly hold?
Stay in the past is what I hear, it is much more
Fun there… Time to play, lets run and get away
Using fists to fight for all that is wrong but pretend
It is right! Waiting for the smoke to clear, pass the
Blunt liquid crystal clear… Ooh what the past shows
Me…. An out of control kid up in a frenzy.. Not caring
Of night or day, looking to fumble every step of the way
Wrong choices, no right turns, or turning right might
Be the new fight!
Looking at life in a different way, my babies showed me
Not to stray… Making good on all that I spoke, spitting
Those words trying not to choke..
As I come to this new phase of my life, my past has
Taught me wrong from right…
Where do I go from here, timing is the word I always seem
The time is now, no more furry for me, time to make life
Tight use a new key…
The key to my happiness is in my heart, so true and clear
Did I really know it from the start?
Maybe I did, and just went astray, now back on track, making
The most of my days…
Now I fill my time with love and purpose, strong enough to
Close that old door with wind and a rhyme, as there is no more use
To look back into time….
NO weak excuses for me, or falling back on old habits that
Used to be…
It is not where I want to be, shutting that door will set me free…
EXPOSING MY SOUL…
Stripped of all you thought you knew… Feeling life
Is truly through… Sadness in your life overwhelmed by
The daily strife… What are you supposed to do when
Your world is exposed to those who thought they knew!
Hidden life, so crystal clear … clouded images masked by
The harsh confusion - blinded by the light of burning hell
Who is willing to tell?
Shedding your masks one by one, OH do you dare see the sun
Or continue in the path of darkness hiding in the shadows where no
One will see your tainted soul damaged by abuse of the forsaken
DEEP DARK MISERY …
Come out Come out I say, it is time to play… No more running away
Be exposed into the light a glorious new day…
As the layers are peeled away, I call out to you my soul this day
Showing the world my story untold
Releasing the past time to let go…
On forward I do go, no more shame enjoying the show.. Basking
In the light of the stage, my story told applause of praise!
I am proud of who I have become, no more shadows will fall upon
Me … Let it all go-I am truly FREE…
is composed of nows.
