Old Poems

I was just organizing my thumb drive so that I could put some work files onto it. I was side tracked by some old poems I came across.


I started writing in 1989. My first year in High school.

Looking back on it now I can say I had no clue on what I was doing, I remember trying to make them more like song lyrics because I use to want to start a band back then (I actually was in three bands but that's another story for a later time).


Here is a few that I wrote out of the total of 33 for the year, don't laugh to hard, these are really old and I was young and clueless (ok..ok..I'm still cluless... ). If you want to see them all, well... I"m trying to think of a good set up for my new website and they will be there once done.

** These are copied and pasted form the original files -- Forgive the all caps on some.

BLIND

You fool!
How can you help someone
When you can’t even help yourself
Just remove the log out of your own eye
Before you remove the speck that’s in your brother’s eye

Why won’t you open your eye’s
To see the truth
It’s in front of your face
Just don’t be blind
Especially by yourself

Yeshua want’s you now
Just don’t fight it
You know it’s the right way
Yahweh wants to care for you
You know there’s no other way
With this sightlessness

Why won’t you open your eye’s
To see the truth
It’s in front of your face
Just don’t be blind
Especially by yourself

Don’t think I’m a hypocrite
I do the best I can
Why won’t you do the same?
And just think of him

Why won’t you open your eye’s
To see the truth
It’s in front of your face
Just don’t be blind
Especially by yourself

Just don’t be blind to the light
You know you got to open your eyes
Don’t be afraid
Just open your eyes
And don’t be blind

Words of Honor

You open your mouth
To someone or something
After the fact has happen
After the fall has fallen

Do you understand this?
Do you comprehend it?

Glory, hope, life, liberty, peace, bravery, diligence, valor
These are words of honor
Systematically spoken, spent, done.

You win big with these
Still not enough for you
So you carry on
With what you do

Do you understand this?
Do you comprehend it?

Glory, hope, life, liberty, peace, bravery, diligence, valor
These are words of honor
Systematically spoken, spent, and done.

SEPERATION

COME BACK TO THE WAY YOU ONCE WERE
COME BACK TO HOW IT ONCE WAS
INVICIBLE, UNSTOPABLE
WHAT HAPPEN TO US

DIFFERENCES IN THOUGHTS
TEAR EACH OTHER APART
DIFFERENCES IN MINDS
TEAR FRIENDSHIPS AWAY

WORDS EXCHANGED
WORDS THAT HURT
WORDS THAT DAMAGE
WORDS THAT SCAR

COME BACK TO THE WAY YOU ONCE WERE
COME BACK TO HOW IT ONCE WAS
INVICIBLE, UNSTOPABLE
WHAT HAPPEN TO US

DIFFERENCES IN THOUGHTS
TEAR EACH OTHER APART
DIFFERENCES IN MINDS
TEAR FRIENDSHIPS AWAY

ACTION PUSHED OUT AND OVER TO
ACTIONS THAT BRUSE
ACTIONS THAT BREAK
ACTIONS THAT SHATTER

P.A.P

Preachers against preachers
People against people
I’m sick of all this fighting
I’m sick of all this war
It’s all too much for me

Preachers against preachers
Men of the cloth not true believers
Those fuss and fight
And think they’re right
All they want
Is to get rich quick
And condemn us all
As lunatics

People against people
Preachers against preachers
It’s just too much for me
I’m sick of all this war
It’s all too much for me

People against people
Those of you who watch t.v.
And get these racist views
Against you and me
And fight for what
They think is right
Without reason
To believe it’s not truth

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Comments

You ask the same questions
But I have different answers
You don’t believe in differences
Of each other’s point of views

Don’t you tell me I am wrong
Don’t you tell me you are right
You know you have to
Find the answers yourself

Don’t you do it alone
You need some one too
To give you another point of view
On what you are facing now.
