I Know

I know you wish I would express my thoughts in a precise way.
My love, my fears, and all that my heart has to say.

I know you're sensing my preoccupation, and reluctance of mind.
I tell you, not so convincingly, that everything is fine.

I can't find words to express exactly what I feel.
It's Important to me for you to know that my love is real.

I know you understand me even when I don't say.
I believe you are open to the words kept at bay.

You are always willing and available to hear.
That's what makes you very special, and my dear.

I know you wish I would express my thoughts in a precise way.
My love, my fears, and all that my heart has to say.

Nothing about you makes that hard to do.
I am the obstacle that is difficult to pass thru.

Secret Places

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races.

Those secret places when
I'm alone with my thoughts
If by Jesus my soul was bought
How much time do I have before I'm caught
Up short for being naught

What about the times that I did legal crimes
Like breaking hearts, lying and cutting lines
That was nothing compared to washing her mind and treating them like concubines

How about the secret I'm too ashamed to share
How people would think about me I care
So I act like Burt from the TV series "Soap" I snap my fingers and it ain't there
That seems to work for a while
Then I start acting out and showing my ass wild style

How about the place filled with shame and disgrace
Am I to blame for that space
It wasn't my fault I believe
Only to learn by that lie I'd been deceived

That place where alone I must go
I drop on my Knees and wish life wasn't so
I holler out loud and ask the creator why
I shake my head from left to right and rub my eyes

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races.

There's a secret place I go to get it right
I make promises to self, set goals, and my demons fight
I usually travel there in the middle of the night
And try not to alert others who ask questions like "you sure you're alright?"

Those secret places of refuge for me
Oh Lord, You said You would hide me
In the valley of the shadow of death you said you would guide me
Please hear me, I need to confide in thee
I'm having a hard time, how can I just let it be?

Turn from my ways and seek Your face?
Then from heaven I will hear and feel Your grace?
Renew my way of thinking I must try to embrace
If I want different results in my secret place

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races.

I didn't forget that secret she told me about
How he'd come in late and put his hand over your mouth
"Shh!" he said and don't tell
Her childhood stolen her life a living hell!

There also was a place where a fetus did abort
Always in my mind a regret I do report

Those secret places
The ones where the truth raises
And causes me to make private faces
Where maybe down my cheek a tear races

It's So Hard

It's So Hard

It's so hard to say goodbye
Like in the movie Cooley High
Did Cochise really have to die?

A popular rap song claims,
It's so hard just to get by
So we get high

It's so hard to suffer and not know why
It's so hard to watch a grown person cry

It's so hard to keep the prize in my eye
When hard times seem to keep pouring from the sky

It's so hard to believe I can fly
When circumstances tell me that's a lie

It's so hard to know I didn't try
To do my best and not let the moment pass me by

It's so hard to be honest and not be sly
When it seems easier to be awry

It's so hard to not be that guy
The one my ego won't let lie

It's even harder to tell to I
That I can change if I really try!

What Did You Say?

What Did You Say?

Is that a fact?
Did you really mean that?
Yes, to be exact!
Cut you some slack?
Well, listen here Jack!

Wow, that hurt so much!
Don't you know words cut?
Way down deep they touch.
Feel them more than a kick in the butt.
Didn't think you could say such
Words that pierce my mind So, my heart I clutch

Wish time could rewind
Make me forget the unkind
Way that you find
To give me a piece of your mind

Thought words did no harm?
Well, they work like a charm.

Sticks and stones may break bones, and take this with you home.

Think about what you say.
Words can never be taken away!

I Wish

I WISH

I wish I knew the words to say
To comfort you in a special way

I wish you could see my heart
Know the love it wants to impart

I wish you believed the truth
I love you, even when I act aloof


I wish it was a different day, and "I apologize" I didn't have to say

I wish time could rewind
Take back my being unkind

I wish it didn't happen like that
That the past wasn't a fact

I wish the situation I could change
My words and actions were rearranged

I wish you really believed
You're feelings won't be deceived

I wish, I wish, I wish
It didn't happen like this

Take A Trip

To take a trip I don't need to take a train
Get in a car, board a boat, or fly on an airplane
I can go in my mind if I allow
My imagination to lead and the rest to follow

Ancient Natives took trips with the aid
Some say of peyote, some medicinal herbs, many rumors have been sprayed
Read about rituals where the spirits fly
Takes you to far away places seemingly in the sky

Hippies took trips on what is called the 'A-train'
Mescaline, LSD, Shrooms, different drugs but same thing
For some of the trips they needed a guide
From some of the trips some people still ride

In the 21st Century trippin still exists
Some off that Kush or Dro making 'em feel like gorillas in the midst
Some popping pills also known as rollin or 'X'
Others prefer syrup, sippin on lean, aka promethazine

Sometimes I'm around folks and they ask
"Why you trippin?" as they set down an empty glass
My drinks all gone, and the girls acting funny
The truth of the matter is he ain't got no more money

It's fun to take a trip however I can
Though I prefer one with a ticket in hand
Make the journey from a boy to a man
Discovering how to be the best me that I can

Trust Yourself

I thinks it's perfect just like that
Are you sure? Is that a fact?
I want to run this by you just to check
You don't need to do it, you got God on deck

Trust yourself that's what you need to do
Tune into you and He'll shine through
Take a step in an act of faith
No need for others to validate

If you believe in spirit
Open your mind to hear it
Dig deep in your soul
Let your emotions unfold
Whatever comes next don't fear it
Embrace it fully and let your heart hear it

Trust yourself that's what you need to do
Tune into you and He'll shine through
Take a step in an act of faith
No need for others to validate

I'm gonna take a chance out of my comfort zone
I can do my best on my own
Do something I've rarely done before
Not seek the favor of others nor their opinions implore

A Special Day

A special day in a special way
What's the occasion? that's what they say
We getting it in!
We trying to win!

What is the reason? Tis the season
Is it about harmony or people pleasing
Or like Vicki's Secret, sensual teasing
Or like infinity, never ceasing

Pick it up, put it down, pick it up
What's good in the hood when drinking our of your pimp cup
Like peas in the pod and two of a kind
Nothin better than being with those of like mind

Celebrating life like it's 1999
Poppin bottles of exquisite french wine
Eating crustaceans from the eastern shore
Doing it to the max or shall I say galore

It's a birthday ya'll, the sign of a beginning
New life, new year, the start and not the ending
We'll all join in and sing along
Our very own version of the birthday song

So Real

Wanted to write some words with a little edge
Say something profound that would make you pat your leg
Hit you with jazzy verbs and classy nouns
Use some real descriptive adjectives to show you how I get down
Trying real hard just to impress
Almost forgetting what it is I can do best

Just let if flow, and tell the truth
Stop worrying about them and be the authentic you
Words from my heart go straight to that place
Popping off at the mouth usually put a foot in my face

Here it is in honor of the day
We celebrate life in a magnificent way
The joy of a bond between a woman and a man
They didn't know it then, but it was all in God's perfect plan
Created a life that would change the world
A special being was gifted was gifted in the form of the baby girl

Her name would be unique strong and firm
As time unfolds she would come to learn
The essence of life, way more than an egg meets a sperm
To fulfill her dreams and amazing goals to pursue
To help a ready soul and bring out the best in you
To love as hard as heartbreak allows
Then love even harder, like a parent does a child

Go places most wouldn't dare
Live life with no worry or care
Leave fear behind and face uncertainties
Trust and believe in the Supreme Being most importantly
Her destiny is still being revealed
But the manifestation she represents is ever so real

True To You

Now it's been said
Over and over in my head
The words ring in my ears
Same syllables and cliches used over the years
Not played as much as "keeping it real'
Yet over the decades it has the same appeal
"Dammit I'm true, in everything I do!
