I Know You


 

I know you

I know why you said that

I remember you

you’ve been through a lot

so I hear why you’re

telling her not to cry

but everybody ain’t always

as strong as you

when you are

 

it would be nice

but it seems that way

but it’s not

I Shall Rise


I Shall Rise

Love sought out like it was a drug

Alone but not lonely though

Mind filled with chatter

somewhere along the lines

the chatter stopped

I don’t know the exact date

I just remember the last time

I remember a time when I

was deep

when my thoughts were deep

Where I thought down to

the reason why I should do something

Or not

I don’t know where I stopped

I just want to be a little more controlled over my thoughts

I want to be able to tell

tell when one starts and the other stops

constant

I just want to make better

better choices in life

I want to hear you when you talk

I don’t want to misunderstand anything you say

I’ve  made a lot of mistakes

I’m tired of doing that

I want to do something

different

So I’m listening

I am listening out for your words

I want to feel them so deep

That I know it’s you

I want to listen to myself

When I speak

I don’t want to listen out for the words only

I want to hear what I am saying

So I know what I mean

like you know what I mean

I just want to go a little bit deeper

I don’t mean this in a bad way

I just know that time is short and I want

to do better faster

I don’t want to waste

a minute

wouldn’t it be nice

If the world was that way

Just more real and honest

Do What Makes You Happy


KaismThere has to come a time in your life where you just do what makes you happy. Surely, you can get to do that. I finally have decided that I’m going to do just that.

Not trying to hurt anyone else but I just want to do what I want without condemnation or guilt. And I won’t. I won’t look for or seek those feelings out.

There has to come a time in your life where you don’t care what anyone else has to say. You don’t hurt nobody and you don’t want nobody hurting you; so you do what you want to do, because time, is short.

Sometimes we fool ourselves to say that we ain’t supposed to do what we want. We not supposed to be happy. Everybody else is but not us. I won’t play martyr. I don’t know how much time I’ve got left. I’m going to do what I want to do and not feel guilty about it. Not no more.

I feel free to love me and do some things that will allow me to be my most authentic self. That’s what I want in-spite of anything. Whatever anything is.

I don’t want to even hear what others think. If I choose to wear white pants in the middle of winter I’m going to do it because you’re not guaranteed to be here next summer. I’m going to wear what I want, when I want. I don’t want to hear anybody say nothing negative. I’m not looking for it. I don’t care to hear it, because I don’t care about it. I just want to live.

I just want to live and be happy. I want to write, feel free to love me, to find me, so that if and when I can be my best me, for you.

If you want to come along that would be even better; but if not, that’s up to you….I’ll see you!

I Said I Would


I said that I would

I said that I would heed to the call when I heard it

I said I would do it no matter what

No matter how much fear tried to overwhelm my spirit

No matter how much someone criticized what I am called to do

No matter how much anyone tried to distract me

 

I said that I would

I said that I would be obedient to your will

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said I’d do it even if you took me in a different direction

Even if I didn’t know where I was going

Even if what I started out doing changes

I said that I would continue

 

I said that I would

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said that I would do it even if I saw no end result

That I wouldn’t let my eyes disturb your vision

That I would only listen for the sound of your voice

 

I said that I would

I said that I would keep you first

I said that I wouldn’t get in the way

That I would remain humble to your presence

That I would stay in my place

 

I said that I would…
