Eleventh Hour

God of thunder
Lifts his spear
Listen close so you may hear

The mountains above
Valleys below
Time has come for you to know

That all men need walk
Hand in hand
To spread peace throughout the land

The tides they crash
Oceans roar
Beaches erode
Soon they'll be no more

Flowers will wither
Life will die
While you sit and wonder why

Time it passes
Slips away
Soon there will be
No place to play

When you look up towards the sky
And the moon has turned to blood
Rivers rise over their banks
Causing a massive flood

Animals perish
Starve and die
Again you ask and wonder why

Life we knew now has changed
There is no longer an open range
Pastures and meadows
Are now all gone

How is it we can continue on
Take my words and follow his plan
Go spread peace throughout the land

Cat- I recall the song from a coke commercial (LOL ) but the actual group and title escape me now....

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
Grow apple tree and honey bees
And snow white turtle doves

That song? Someone, Anyone help US remember !!

Here ya go cat, my thanks to google HA HA

I'd like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company
I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills "Ah, peace throughout the land"

(That's the song I hear)
I'd like to teach the world to sing (that the world sings today)
In perfect harmony

(Lead singer and background singers singing simultaneously)

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

Id like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

Black demon wings
Blood red eyes
Venom that stings
Hollow selfish cries

Filth encrusted nails
Heart casting wrath
Putrid rotting scales
Endless dark path

If I were a cloud up high

I would look below and sigh

At the poor attempts below

To try and make good things grow

Mass destruction everywhere

Doesn't look as if anyone cares

Where is the grass so green

How long since it's been seen

The trees are all falling down

Just for progress to take the ground

We can't breathe for the air is gray

Make it stop, make it go away

The children need the sky of blue

Sun to shine on morning dew

A place for them laugh and play

How can it be for we took it away

When you look into their eyes

You will see no joy and surprise

For what we give them here today

Was not ours to take away

Yet we turned their skies to gray

Now asphalt is their place to play

~Damaged Goods~

I feel like I am damaged goods
peering out from life's black hood
not knowing what I should
who I am
or if I'm good
damaged goods inside a box
with no holes, but with a lock
mutilated, cut and scared
a life that said
please discard
throw her away
toss her aside
who was it
that had the right to decide
that my life be full of pain
am I the one in which to blame
damaged goods
look at me
I have seen no victory
I have felt the love of none
never kissed by the sun
take my life
do as you may
toss me aside
or place me on display
for I am but damaged goods
peering out from life's black hood

I don’t truly know you
But yet a fear for you
I feel your emotions
When you speak
I feel like crying
When I feel you dying
Is it wrong for me to care
About one that I don’t
But dearly want to know
We all have problems
Some more than others
I fear her cuts
Her life slowly ebbs
She sees her life
Knowing it must go on
It tears me apart to know this
But what can I do?
I am but a man
And am helpless to stop it

Walking into the sunset
the war rages to his back
giving up on the souls that need him most
returning to his cold tomb of pain
reguarded once more as the destroyer
seen once more as the jerk
times of change always come
and the best of friends will break
time may heal all wounds
but only makes some scars worse
my skin etched with pain and sorrow
my soul lost long ago in search of my mate
dwindling down my wayward path
as I walk into the sunset
as the war rages to my back

To protect her i will give my life but knowing that will hurt her i can not
what must i do; my love never in need of my protection
yet my heart will allways protect her; never wanting to leave her side
yet the distance to far; my love will never leave her
always with my heart and soul because without her i don't exist
now and forever i need her in my life.

enlighting me and making me smile
there for me when I want no one else
knowing my pain and understanding it all
a mirror for my soul
just as mine mirrors hers
twisted and turned broken in need of mending
we will build each other up
in this vast wasteland called life

just wrote that.

Torrent of gasses
From inner bowels
Something passes,
someone howls

The sick things that I ponder
Sorry, folks, fret no longer...

Title Water

How far,
How far must we go in life,
How much must we give,
How much must we lose,
In the search for love
How can you be certain you have found it
Even with great feelings you can never really be sure
To throw yourself headlong into something
Is the only way
Trying to find it all is hard
You want to give in so bad
After failing and falling
But you cant
You must fight on and never give in
All in the slight chance
That you might find your love
Its taken so long
But I am sure of this
That I have found you
I just hope that you have found me

abit on the light side, quite diff from my normal stuff. enjoy

A noble and precious treat

From the darker side

The pain does not subside
For this gal I took aside
To whom I did confide
"No lover by my side"

She put away the pride
And took me for a ride
Her rules I can't abide,
Now I take it all in stride

I Know I could have cried
I thought I might have died
By now my eyes have dried
And seek a better guide

Although I realize
That I am no great prize
'Cause on the Darker Side
Is where I choose to hide

Thanx sweetie, I'll try to get back for more...
Nice stuff everyone

dramatic acts of rage,
a heated firestorm leaving none behind,
raging flames of feelings
make old embers flare inside,
reminders of almost forgotten scars

yes to bad the change couldnt stick

We tend to focus on what we see
Rather than that of what we don't see
Destroying that of what we could see

On the Darker side of life is

-- Age --

With age comes lust
Want of most things beyond our grasp
The envy of all we have and have not been
The material of all our desires and dreams

With age comes memories
Like those of our youthful souls
The children we have begotten
The seeds of new and old
Let us not forget the rotten

With age comes respect
For the beauty in the scene
Most of which we have seen
Good wine and fine cheese
A beach with a summer breeze

With age comes Sorrow
For the suffering we have caused
Things that we have wrought
The ones we have forgot
The wicked things we have sought

With age comes pain
From our daily struggle
To achieve our daily bread
Crumbs to eat instead
Thoughts within our head
Each night we go to bed

With age comes despair
In our lonely wheelie chair
Our sons and daughters gone
Too busy for so long
To even come and sing a song

With age comes death
An end to all that was and is
No shame to forgive
Suffering to be had or give
Honor we have to live

In the hands of death comes memories
For the ones we left behind
Our youthful seeds of souls
The grapes on all the vines
The gratitude we should give
For whom beyond the grave we live

I started writing who I have finally seen to be the love of my life, so to get used to writing letters by hand i have started to write my poems instead of typing heres my newest one

Death in life as light goes into darkness
ravaged corpses crumble to dust
as the blight engulfs the world whole
demons reign over the vagrent souls
and devour them live to satisfy their bloodlust

it went dark but I have no idea were it was going

i never loved you
leave me here and go

quit looking back at me
i don't need you
i will be alright
you never loved me
you never cared
leave me here and go

Worst Enemy©
Posted: 2/21/2012 5:12:13 AM
Anguish floods the mind and then,
Subsides to journey back again
When pain, renewed, knocks on our door
For evidently we want more …

Incessantly do we cultivate
Those things which will berate
Stability and normalcy
Bringing pain … unconsciously.

Relationships which ooze abuse;
Lust or greed which do seduce;
Gluttony and avarice
Compels us toward a worthlessness.

No one drives us to these ends
Where pain always in the air suspends
‘n Anguish lives in infamy – but …
T’is WE - our worst enemy

My litany of future deeds
Contained among its’ lofty meeds
A quota I was to meet
And lay them at my Master’s feet.

With diligence and stone resolve
I vowed that quota to absolve
By picking carefully
The butchered souls He wants from me.

The Prince of Darkness, harsh and cruel
While using me as his tool
Crushes souls so viciously
Laughs, when souls for mercy plea

Eons now have I lived
A billion souls have I sieved
Constantly ... I search for more
Always seeking an encore

Now, today I find me … here
Where you and I are oh so near
I so enjoy the work I do …
For now I seek a soul from … YOU!

Queen of the Rails©
Posted: 2/24/2012 5:30:42 PM
The engine: Long and black
And sleek as she could be
She shook the earth in her approach
It was her heraldry.

A wake of steam and smoke
Hovers o’er the rails
Of hardened steel and wooden ties
Which her magnificence assails

Massive is her presence
Enormity her design
Power is her excess
This Queen is so refined

She rules again with majesty
Today while she’s in view
But … sadly this is the time,
Last accolades are due

Slowly as she comes to rest,
We see she’s thoroughbred
Where water, steel and hard, black coal
Together have been wed.

In regal-ness she’s resplendent
With fittings’ shining bright
Her radiance commands respect
On this – her final flight.

Now sitting at the siding
Puffing rhythmic breath
A far away museum will,
Of her life commit its’ theft.

Photographs will mimic
Her image of today
But missing from those photos:
The Glories of Yesterday

When o’er the steel she thundered
Demanding from all who saw
Her massive immense power
Which held them all in awe.

But Glory, she found, was fleeting
When “progress” came to call
Her future then was set in stone
Like the writing on the wall.

Now we hear the brake release …
Her throttle then is moved …
She inches down the track
There on the landscape grooved

Then as she gains her breath
And whistles out her yell
An announcement for all to hear:
“Goodbye! Hope I’ve served you well!”

She’s journeyed through the ages
And this boy – an old man now -
Watches as she fades away
And waves, as he yells: “Ciao!”

But in his mind is yesteryear
With his dog there by his side
Standing near the railroad tracks
Where Queen-of-the-Rails did ride.

And long from now whenever
He says: “Remember when …”
It will be those times to him
She’ll come alive … again.

Broken Man
Posted: 6/3/2012 8:32:56 PM
This is a cool thread.

Am I afraid? No.

Am I challenged? Yes.

Slaughter long ago, whish to die
encouraged people, strong cry
little ones cherish grown strong
surprised, proud sweet whistle song

Concerned knot false spewn pulpit
for that, dressesd up, little shit
told of often, what to think
avoid careful, cesspool stink

Chased whiteline , over come
Eighteen wheels, duty done
Never missed, liars pretense
Horizons for, with little cents

It's simple, really, my prose
respected words, others free chose
pleasant reading, but fire burst strong
content with locomotive, sweet bird song
