Charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent

Survival of the fittest in the world today 

It’s all in me, can I let it out? 

Downplayed, afraid of what others may say

How can he Radiate such, such beauty, 

Such grace. I mean he only takes pictures of his

Face; body isn’t perfect but folks feel he’s 

Conceited because he doesn’t talk to

Everyone; Arrogant because he knows what he 

Wants; speaks his mind didn’t stutter one time

Truly feeling he’s one of a kind

Took some time for him to find

The jewel that lies inside 

Buried under hurt, dirt, seaweed, broken glass 

Honey, insecurity and neglect.

Gentle in speech, large in spirit 

I’m on my way…to be continued

Lamenting on truest of lives…

I did plan it

I had no Qualm; about going through with it

The date was set

I need to get things in order 

Fire up the tape recorder 

Let everyone know I love them 

It’s about me, wasn’t about you

Get outta my head

Build a new life 

Try new things, maybe go clean 

What am I trying to accomplish?

What am I trying to escape?

Sometimes I feel like it’s too late 

But it’s not, it’s ego talking 

Universe help me out

I wanna get these feelings out

Stuck, lost, off track, astray

Moving, found, clear, focused 

It’s what I’m after…..

Come One, Come All

Here ye.    Here ye.

Everyone is welcome 

Come into my home 

Tell me your stories

Life experiences and such

Welcome aboard 

My train, no judge or jury

No hurry to confirm 

To the harshness of society 

Bring your gifts, share your talents 

Let’s all learn together 

Color blind in my eyes

We all have the same insides 

My place  so kiss your girl, kiss your dude

Kiss both on different days, respect 

Hold hands in harmony, peace

Be with us, Hospitality to 1000th degree

Come stay with me

Take me to your land so I can learn all I can

A great time had by all

I promise one and all

Universe my mind and heart is open…..

Tenacious and Strong (Precious Metal)

              

I want it. I need it.

My breath I can see it

The victory can taste it

The solitude I face it

Unshakable the drive

Too bad I hold it deep inside

So many roads to take

Can’t I just choose one avenue and be great?

Unwavering in my approach 

Determined in my education 

Learning as much, as fast as I can

Trying to be great, not mediocre man

Take it seriously but not so seriously 

Take it easy but don’t be easy

To be fooled into doing things that 

Take you off your path

I will succeed, thrive

I will survive, strong-willed

Practice makes perfect 

Comparison may be certain 

Tho Tenacious I deserve this 

A life I love ❤️

Take this (fortune) and run…


What would you do if it came to you?

Would you give it away, drink it away

Use it to slay all the demons that may

Come in the night, taking all of the light

Buy a new house, get up off the couch

Make your dreams come true

Give it away to family or charity 

To some they are one and the same 

Use it to shift blame

On all the horrors the world see’s

Feed a hungry country, feed a hungry soul

They say money comes with problems 

They say money solves all problems 

Do you listen to what they say?

Hide away, maybe change your name

Help take care of some of the pain

Of comparison, of ego, of wanting, needing 

Be chill, buy a car, a significant other

Would it teach you to love one another 

Fortune like this could change ones life

Enhance it, break it down

Get the tools make it last, time goes fast

One day your broke, next day you’re rich

But it’s hard to fix

What’s all inside, nope money can’t hide

So what would you do?

Would you let this money handle you?

A shot of light n life (elixir)

Guardian Angel hear my plea

Come rescue me

Depression has come calling 

Loud, strong, impressionable 

Feeling stuck, caged in you could say

Tell me something, make my day

Brighter, sunnier

Love letters to my heart

An elixir for my woes

Deep thinking, contemplating 

Just letting go, leaving it all behind 

Comparison is death at my age, any age

Oh sage, walk with me, talk with me

Give me the magic to mix this life

Into something I’d love, even like

Grant me the greatest gift 

Of being able to see the world in all

its glory, is it by telling stories?

One year older, hair a bit grayer 

I would like a sign for the piece of mind

To move forward knowing that life can be a 

Challenge and the storm I’m in won’t always

Be this way, oh heavens I pray 🙏🏽

Your Elixir would be most helpful whatever 

It may be, I kneel and bow to thee. 

Be the guide.

Year 37 

I believe in miracles, cause it’s a miracle I’m here.”  -Emeli Sande

Born day is here and the feeling is mixed

I’m blessed to have what I have 

Meet the people I’ve met 

Traveled to the places I’ve traveled 

There is something I wanna do

Live in another place, get another grove

Find love with another + myself 

Follow my true path 

Be that media mogul, makes dreams come

True, even mines 

I pray this year brings a Desire to live

Fully honestly and without hesitation 

With that sentimental crap outta the way

My attitude remains

singer sings, people listen.

The season is here

The big awards are given out

Music to film, around this time

Lights never dim

I’ve always wanted to be part of the culture 

Entertaining the masses

Some days I feel like putting in the work 

Some days I want to wallow in the hurt

Of self doubt and what if’s

The universe is showing me 

That I have lessons to learn and to teach

Preach if you will, through lyrics or through 

Song, that’s how most folks get it on

I’m afraid to share you see, message 

May not be received, told to go back in

Fighting against that, lessons resumed

Eager to learn again, no expectations 

Will you hear my song?  💘

In response to Sound

Heard the ocean call….

​​

​ First time ocean visit
Loudness , waves crashing 

Water sign, deep connection 

I could stay all day, time permitting 

Blessings abound, gratitude sets in

Not everyone has these blessings 

They may take it for granted

I don’t. I won’t

Heaven I hear you
Heard

Vocal Warmup

stock-photo-senior-music-teacher-pointing-to-a-music-board-72910063

Find your natural voice the teacher says

Never knowing the price the past paid

In losing such a valuable instrument.

Sounding like a girl when you’re supposed

 To be a man can let down your spirits

Up your guard and unknowingly make your life hard

Find your natural voice the teacher says

No falsetto, strong and proud

I wanna hear your voice so sing it loud

Pick a song any song share your gift with the world

I’m here for a reason to help you understand

Voices come in all shapes and sizes

Its time you realizes that we won’t all

Sound the same, look the same

I can’t pretend to understand your pain

But I can help you become aware

Gifts so rare that not everyone gets it

It’s for the tried and true alone

Give it some time your flower will be full blown

Luther, Freddie, Donny, Sam, Michael and Prince

Shared, cared and paved the way with musical talent

Beyond compare, so how dare you

Not treat this gift with the utmost care

Nurture it, teach it, stretch it

Find your natural voice the teacher says

I will I reply give me some time

Learn for this gift, use this gift

Share this gift because God gave me this gift.
