    True eXisTenZ:

    The Balls Of Glowing Gases
    Never Look The Same Way
    They’re Twinkling In The Sky
    At A Zillion Miles Away
    Massive Immovable Objects
    Yet Moving All The Time
    Always Getting Larger
    The Question In The Back Of My Mind
    Imagine The Great Distances
    That Separate Each Lonely Star
    Imagine It, How Can You
    No Matter How Advanced You Are
    Our Existence Is Truly Enigmatic
    Yes, True Existence
    True Existenz We All Are
    At Night
    I See The Stars Moving
    I Wonder At The Sight
    Or Are We Just Spinning
    In The Infinite Sky Tonight
    Hydrogen And Elements Found
    In Our Domain To This Day
    They Act As Fuels For Such Light And Sound
    Life Within The Milky Way
    Stars Stand For Things Far And Wide
    Any Places, Any Thing
    Constellations That Just Can’t Hide
    Or Can They, An Enigmatic Thing
    Yet, This We Do Not Know
    Don’t Think We Could Handle It
    Otherwise We’d Try And Go
    Already, Thus Departed
    Turn And Face A Different Star
    You Don’t Know Just How Luck You Are
    Are You Really Interested
    Or Has The Sight
    Been Taken In For Granted
    Nothing Is Impossible
    The Difficulties And Risks May Increase
    These Can Be Adaptable
    Otherwise Our Dreams Will Cease
    Minds Travel At An Extraordinary Pace
    The Hopes And Dreams, They Don’t Resist
    For There Is No Time And Space
    And No Boundaries That Exist
    To Think We Are Alone
    We’d Have To Be Naïve
    For In The Twilight Zone
    They Mislead To Deceive
    Our Galaxy Is But One Of Many
    There Are So Many Far Away
    Will We Ever Reach One
    Well Maybe One Day…

    A Dream of Love
    One night when I fell asleep I had a wonderful dream.
    In that dream I saw beautiful and majestic things.
    I saw a most beautiful sunset where the reds were as bright as a strawberry.
    And with purples so deep you could fall in them.
    I saw a most majestic sight, a wonderful flower with bright and beautiful colors.
    It was a beautiful lilac, a wonderful fuchsia, and a soft lavender.
    But then I saw something more beautiful and majestic than anything I had seen.
    It was a familiar girl she had beautiful dark hair, and with lustrous dark eyes.
    She had beautiful hair, and a perfect angel's face, and an angel's smile.
    She would still be beautiful even if you put her in clothes covered in mud.
    She was by far the most beautiful person or object I had seen.
    Then I woke up and I realized something.
    I know this girl but not as well as I want to be or need to be.
    Then I cried for I knew she would never feel the way I feel about her.

    The moon rises in a gentle sweep.
    It sits in the sky like the ruler of the night.
    It is meant to be seen and not to keep.
    It is a powerful force you can not fight.
    You feel peacefulness as you sleep.
    It is unavoidable even if you use all your might.
    It soon leaves with a giant leap.
    It is gone for another day but still left its gift of being bright.

    Take time
    Take time to look and you will see
    Blessings pouring down like rain
    Take time to listen
    And you may hear the whisper of better things to come
    Take time out of your day to pray
    And you will find that circumstances will change
    Take time to enjoy the beauty of life
    And the noise and worries of the day will fade
    Take time to thank God for all the good things he brings your way.
    Just take time, because time is not always available to take.

    I thought you would see it by now.
    No matter what i do, i cant seemto make you proud.
    I've been neglected, mistreated, and hurt.
    Being with you was an all time perk.
    I work so hard for your love and trust.
    You're the one who got the best of us.
    Now you scream like Hell let lose.
    So I'll give you a hug and hand you a nouse.

    You can hang me high, so you wont forget my face.
    Let the love run dry, dripping in my place.
    You made this choice when you told me to leave.
    I had nowhere to go.
    you didn't appreciate me.
    So as i hang here looking down on you, I'll cry one more tear like the girl you knew.

    The NATURE:

    Winning Isn’t Everything
    In Order To Score
    It Takes A Whole Lot
    Then A Whole Lot More
    Psyche Out The Foe
    Question, You Will Know
    Learn Out All You Can
    You Must Put On The Show
    Have You Learned Enough
    To Take A Giant Puff
    On Your Better One
    The One With All The Stuff

    You’ve Run Out Of Time
    The Time To Act Is Now
    Quench For Thirst The Lime
    To Repeatedly Show Us How
    You Are To Play The Game
    Along, They’re All The Same
    Some Enjoy The Fame
    Pasted With Their Name
    Oh My Dear You Lost

    Well, Isn’t That The Cost
    I Think I’ve Had Enough
    Well, Throw It All Away
    You’re Going Through A Phase
    And On A Perfect Day
    You’ll Work Out The Maze
    The Labyrinth Within
    I’m Thinking I Can Win
    When The Time Is Right
    You’ll Scream And Dance Right In
    I’m In The Middle Now
    The Dancing Of The Set
    Look And Watch Me How
    I Terminate The Bet
    The Terminator’s Back
    I’m Back And Just Look Out
    For The Nature Of My Sack
    Then The Nature Of The Spout
    You See, You Paid The Cost
    Of Playing To Win
    You Won But Also Lost
    Now You Know, You’re In…

    The Green Dragon:

    Standing Out And Looking
    I Hold You Close Tonight
    Wondering And Thinking
    Reality’s Out Of Sight
    If And When I See You
    I Won’t Know What To Say
    Seeing You Is Better
    I’ll Remember You That Way
    Saying Words To Please Me
    You Tear My Heart Apart
    Feelings, Now They’re Easy
    Especially From The Heart
    Life Is Filled With Choices
    We See These Every Day
    I Hear The Same Old Voices
    But Don’t Know What To Say
    Take Them All Together
    They Wind Up Best This Way
    Take Them All Forever
    Immortality’s Here To Stay
    Waiting For The Winter
    To One Day Go Away
    You Appreciate The Summer
    Funny, Isn’t It I Say
    Let’s Drink The Wine Together
    It’s Ours And Ours To Drink
    And Soon The Cool Sweet Water
    The Best Drink, Don’t You Think
    Add To This A Lemon, A Little Absinthe To
    It’s Pale Yet So Refreshing
    Ooh, Here Comes A Dragon
    I Think He’ll Find It Quenching
    Drink It All Night Long
    We’ll Drink Them One And All
    Then Maybe Sing A Song
    Retire, Then Rest, Then Crawl
    Maybe Grow Some Fruit
    And Tend To The Placid Sheep
    Trip Over The Green Wormwood Root
    So We Can One Day Sleep
    People, Places, Memories
    Experiences Quite Unique
    Remember Them As Always
    For One Day We Will Meet…

    This is a poem I wrote called " Him"

    He changed me from the start
    made me who I am
    helped me to retain my footing
    When the devil grasped my hand
    He changed my wicked ways
    helped me to understand
    that when I feel alone
    I'll always have him

    He is my heart
    My soul
    My man
    He is my anchor to the ground
    and when I feel like breaking down
    He'll hold me up until the end

    Like Juilet and Romeo
    He'd follow me to hell
    He'll die if I do
    and live while I live
    That's how much we love.
    I wish others could understand.
    Each night I pray to god
    and beg god not to take him.
    This is how he means to me
    He's my everything.

    Imagining how the world will be
    Under a beautiful shady tree
    No one by my side
    At moment am all right
    Sooner i hear an inner voice
    Directed me to make a choice
    To think vast like the ocean
    And remain constant in motion
    How can this small head think vast, i asked
    Remember the God of past, the voice faxed
    Wondering, how the sky contain the mist
    Contemplating how the forest hold it's beast
    My imagination grew wild
    Like a poisonous bile

    Under the shady tree
    I became very free
    I leaned back
    Sudden the clouds turn dark
    My heart begins to beat
    Stomach said, i haven't eat
    Still in my sit
    I remain fit
    The wind blow down many flower
    Sooner it began to shower

    Happy i was under the tree
    From the showers i am free
    There she run
    Like an engine fun
    Escaping the rain
    She run in pain
    Panting like a deer
    Holding her said, oh! my dear
    Though she was wet
    Holding her like my pet
    Where you from she asked
    Next Avenue she faxed
    Shivering with hands in her pocket
    I gently gave out my jacket
    She said you are kind
    Replied never mind

    Sooner the rain stop
    Still no food in my pot
    Can you escort me home
    From this quiet zone
    As we began to walk
    She starts her flattering talk
    Hold her like she is mine
    Having in thought she is fine
    We arrived at her gate
    Almost half past eight
    The house was quiet like a cemetery
    Began to draw its symmetry

    My heart began to ponder
    Leaving my mind to wonder
    I asked where is your mother
    She is a busy barrister
    What of your father
    He is a minister
    She stop to look me cry
    Charlie why
    My answer lies in the sky
    I have to leave baby
    My tummy goes crazy
    What is wrong with it
    Taken too much meat
    No need to worry
    I am sorry

    To strangers you care
    For me, you always there

    Go BeyonD:

    Set Me Alight…And Forever It Seems
    Fear The Fright Of Your Wildest Dreams
    Violence Is A Natural Act
    Yes Red To Black
    Yeah Replace The Dreams
    This Is A Fact: Yeah No Distract
    Start To Go Beyond
    Yeah Beyond… And In Even The Dark Pond
    When You See All The Light, You’ll Ask
    Is This Right?
    Yeah Is This My Fight?

    Fact And Fantasy United As One
    Real Power Stems From The Barrel Of A Pen
    Living Memory Can Easily Be Erased
    Easy To Be Replaced
    Yeah The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword
    Yet With No Blade, Just More Power
    Yeah More Powerful Than The Gun

    You Wonder What’s The Scam
    Pool, The Water, The Sand
    And In The End There Is No Land
    Only Freedom Here And There, But
    Sometimes Hate Is Their Law: Love Under Will
    Transfusing, Contagion Breeds
    With Slight Of Their FirmHand
    Is All Deviancy Cleansed?Or Just Another Order
    For The Next Kill

    Yeah With A Deceived Sleight Of Hand
    A Diseased Slight Of Hand
    A Multi-Cultured Epidemic Can Be Released

    When You Think Of It Some More
    Your Head Starts Getting Sore
    And Wind Up With Regret
    Yeah On Your Shirt Lies The Blood And Sweat
    Yeah Bitterness
    And The Lies – Don’t Believe Them All
    Lies -Yeah Don’t Swallow Them Whole
    Yeah Lies, Half Truths, Misinformation And…

    It Comes And Goes…And Soon Creeps Up On Thee
    After All The Weal And Woes
    We Just Want To Be Free
    Yeah Chase Them Far Away…Away And Let Them Stay
    Into The Outer Day, Yeah
    Just In Their Own Ashtray
    Hell, I’ll Always Stay And Tomorrow
    Is Another Day; I Want To Go Away
    But Help Me Here, Here To Stay
    Never Pushed, Yeah Never Scared Again Today
    Yeah I’ll Never Go Away
