just hearing the music
lyrics personal or not
brightens my life
“ALL PRAISE BE TO GOD TO WHOM ALL PRAISE IS DUE. Let us pursue Him in the righteous path. Yes it is true; ‘seek and ye shall find.’ Only through Him can we know the most wondrous bequeathal […] May we never forget that in the sunshine of our lives, through the storm and after the rain – it is all with God – in all ways and forever. ALL PRAISE TO GOD.”
-John Coltrane, original liner notes to A Love Supreme, 1964
boy, you betta sing loud
make’em feel it, let your voice be heard.
put them on
no outside sound
that’s how it should be
I felt the feelings
smiled from ear to ear
blissful music, live in person
what a joy to behold.
i turn it up loud
my head in the clouds
it gets me through
music I need you
i cherish hearing
I had to getaway
the road was my muse
I refused to settle
i then met him
he paid my bills for a year
said anything you want my dear
it never fails
to go this route…
No feelings involved
he was my ticket here
he told me don’t worry
nothing to fear
against my better judgment
thought of him as my husband
and then everything went to hell
it started with needing bail
for what you say
I was dumb okay…
I should’ve never went announced
to be unexpected and he was undetected
was a problem for him
There was a fight
I tried with all my might
to leave him/it alone but
I felt beholden to him
saving my life in so many ways
but life needs to be golden for me
I’m still here, but I’ve thought about it
Not being here.
Driving on an overpass, how quick to jump
This too shall pass.
Looking at the bottle of pain pills, easy
Takes the pain away.
Looking into the future, it’s not clear
Sadly it’s filled with fear.
Injured from years Dr’s say neglect
I’m writing this. Am I the strong friend
The one no one checks on. Sometimes
take it day by day, telling the enemy go
away . I don’t want none of your time,
I got mine and I’m gonna be fine.
I learned of a local news reporter today
Who took her life, didn’t know her but
On a random night in ICU , i was there
Asking God to take me away
The toughest headache, the sharpest nerve
Pain, more drugs came, the feeling left
For a second.
The point is I’ve been there no judgement
What gets me through?
I’ve asked forgiveness for the wretched
Person i was to merge with the grown up
Man i am today.
Music also has been a great relief, songs
That have preached to me, spoken to me
One such song is the title to this freewrite
“Hold up the light” 3 amazing voices I
Heard talking to me and i thought
Maybe I’m the light? Is this what I’m here
For? Love, Light ,Fight for what’s right?
IDK life is crazy man. You still got me.
I ask for guidance Universe. let me be your
Vessel. I ask humbly to be a light in this
World of darkness…..
i step back
because of “what they think”
my own limitations
are blinding me
can’t won’t see
compliments from peeps
watching stars Glaring
trying to be free
of the old me
wipe the mirror dude
walk into the light
u have the fight
gonna get it right
someday is tonight
while sounds of blackness
optimistic plays in the background
