Soon there'll be rising mutiny
Unify the masses indivisible
A light in the dark we shine
Without any division lines

Being led by the Spirit in the night
Where common goals no no fright
liftin High, society, beyond our site
Living as ONE, humanity BRIGHT

Left loneliness for a sad Goodbye
The day heartbreak decided to try
No more lost love blame to deny
Full emotional void wont rectify

With years of pain takes even more to heal
Friends come and go never know the deal
Why time it’s the best teacher and healer
Prioritizing options from the love dealer

helping us to see what is truth and what’s lies
sweet spot n between those grey, sunny skies
like a dagger in the middle of the heart matter
the day forever changed from glass shattered

eyeing optical illusions, for a clearer View
when the price to pay is often see through
another day dream, or another night mare
of least resistance the path not taken here

after yesterday's sunshine all the rain fell
through all the grey skies it's hard to tell
difference between pain heaven & hell
living a reality happy or jailed in a cell


the circle of life when it all comes back around
freedom learns how to change the come down
a wake up dream from a past to a better place
from a frown to sunshine to your smiling face

just the last man standing in town
looking around from upside down
wondering why the time fley bye
asking forgiveness for a final try

when the phone rang heart skipped a beat
remember good times with the triumph feat
top the Mountain Peak despite the weather
why love is an action word learned together

Thoughts quiet, not to stir
Memories fade not a word
Feel tension quietly speak
Wordless humble & meek

Left loneliness 4 a sad goodbye
To figure out why, I never did try
The same song stuck on repeat
Where the future and past meet

like a drug come to free U
reminiscing for a Deja view
flash back to a better place
Why gudtimes never erase

Refill desire from the hot heat
Living the lie stuck now repeat
Here comes that jagged frown
Recovering from a comedown

in your dank dark lair
hurry up & meet there
running on empty, low
nowhere row after row



inhale a double vision see through view
exhale a reality while it's staring at you
watch out below tell me now what 2do
lookup while the sky is still clear blue

drop bone - hearts skinned
smiling with this greedy grin
a loco staring up high above
gone insane looking for love

back at the drawing board to scribble
searching for what's her names riddle
it starts with r pain and ends with why
price we pay for the change we deny

to ever get put together again
lost in a hurricane fire wind
way past the forgotten past
beneath rubble’s after math

starting over, at a finish Line
two finally, enjoy a life divine
waiting on better days to find
our past its better left behind

to guard the gilded veins in pyrite laden quartz
Memories dance and sing bright color of sorts
trippy floating feelings float under a bad moon
often reflect crescent shapes like a bent spoon

why counting sheep to get shut-eye
is highly recommended before we die
rest and relaxation as we close our eyes
slowing down long enough 2enjoy the ride

enjoying the ride to the other side
slipping & sliding on a hang glide
when the up it turned inside out
It’s when I had very little doubt

between going crazy and feeling sane
just another name in the blame game
forward March Onward, beyond light
when 2day turned into a starry night

why must the fight seem between life or a dream
too good 2 be true stuck up on a billboard screen
flashing danger signs sparks lightning bolt strikes
blessings can be a curse lost in the dead of night

somewhere around the Cape of Good Hope
uncharted territory with alligators & moats
new buried treasures lost from days of old
valuable lessons taught searching fur gold

Like Sisyphus pushing his boulder on high
chasing my own tail in an incomplete try
Heard going crazy is the very first sign
Over on greener grass a dotted line

Living the big deal of noting yet
Measuring common sense wit
An Inch equal to a pinch bet
Almost quite not there yet

could be the end for those who know
where wild thangs go 2 grow & Glow
smashed a 3 run homer standing tall
only to find out later it was a foul ball

slow stroll knows both success & defeat
like the rust & shine no truth and deceit
basic common sense, it finally paid off
the price we pay for the unknown cost

Feeling the rhythm of her body sway
Asking temptation get out of the way
Too far gone now the night is young
Crossing over a bridge of no return

Can still taste sensational magic moments
Way back when the night we use to own it
As the lights go out all the feelings remain
dream to remember from what's her name

to the Godwits' omniscience and the Flamingos flamboyance
they all landed on a casino pier was the weirdest occurrence
when a murder flock swooped in they startled the pit boss
why shaky hands and bad luck equaled suck a high cost

left out not knowing the moral to the story
must be here somewhere lost in the glory
flying too high to get back down to earth
bet it all on the shine for what it’s worth

forgotten lands beyond memory
enjoying familiar awe scenery


reminiscing too far gone for a final goodbye
all wheels downforce shutter shake and try
looks can be mighty deceiving in the light

when unsure of the answer of the first clue
blinded by the light. staggering, what to do
running in incomplete circles to find a way
running out of precious time day after day

but getting closer, with each Lost second
despite the weather or the upper handed
heard it's never best to repeat yesterday
procrastination time - delay fades away

I'd sleep in soundless clarity
Wake up give it all to charity
Sell away all my inner pride
Catch a rainbow to the other side

Free pots of gold at heavens gate
Better hurry up no need to wait
BIG dreams are on the horizon
Might be best if we open r eyes

as many things change even more stay the same
rummaging memories in a thunderstorm of pain
a sunny side up order with a glass of champagne
bailing out the sinking ship to level out the Rain

too close to call around about happy times
back before donut holes held shiny dimes
uncovered truth and now it's everywhere
the length of the distance is neither here nor there

hope can find happiness buried inside
reaching out beyond, what we all hide
wearing the weight of the world alone
in hard times we comfort one another

everyone is fighting the Life battle
some fall short, way to soon to fly
we are all one big family on Earth
spreading goodness & love worth

lost somewhere neither here nor there
any path will take us there
get on board and hold on tight
don't forget to enjoy the magic flight

to new lands beyond our imagination
disregard the road not taken navigation
where dreams materialize day by day
counting all our blessings along the way

might not be now but someday soon
early morning sun, or late night moon
as the seconds fatally tick...don't waste it away
keep a faithful heart all in due time

we rise up above anything
another boring day
living a repeat scene
forget structure
remember perfection
collision course headed towards misredirection
tired is an understatement
facts offend through heisitation
holding the secret lies inside
to our very own reality destination ride
our wildest imagination dreams begin

lost somewhere neither here nor there

inspiration
meant for two
It’s all we ever need
helps to water the unplanted seed
rambling random thoughts escape dopamine
see what I mean?
