Paw Paw
When it was hot outside in the summer I would always stay in And sit around and wait  For my paw paw to come home again. My Paw Paw was the king the house He had his own chair. He had a place for his hats Even though he didn't have hair.   And in his top dresser drawer  He kept his coins in a sock. And his favorite thing to say was  'Your Heeeaaaddd is as Haaarrrddd as a rock'. He likes that old slow music  That doesn't have a real beat. And he never bought us candy Because He didn't have strong teeth. But despite all the other possible things , My paw paw could say and do His love for his family, Is definitely true. He woke up early in the morning Everyday of the year And he prayed for his family. In his favorite chair. He would collect cans and cuts grass And although that sounds strange Everything that he earned he saved, He considered it spare change. He wore hats in the sun But not to keep cool. He was so proud of his kids, That he always reps their school. He took pride in hard work He was a retired blue collar. Instead of living the fast life in the streets, My Paw Paw was chasing dollars. But when I learned the truth about his grind I will forever pay him homage. Because my Paw Paw worked day and night, To make sure I made it to college. All those days of laboring in the sun Were not just for meaningless fun. He passed down that hard working character Down to his kids and grandson. And even though what he earned with Those cans didn't add up to a lot. It was the spare change in his socks, That kept me off the neighborhood block.  He denied his sweet tooth  So we could see his truth. He told us to always go to church And serve the Lord in our youth. And he knew there was a possibility that I might one day stray away So he made sure I was covered in Christ. Like an umbrella on a rainy day. His hats and His socks Has all been passed down to me. With hopes that one day I will lead my own family. My brothers it's hot outside. But instead of staying in, Let's put in work for our sons, And show these boys how to be men.

Stand Firm
Don't let them blow you away. With their shrink ray. No matter what stand tall. You were never meant to be small. Eventhough it appears you are the one one they always comment on. Hold you head up high and Just let them carry on. You are at the top of the pack You are the master of your fate Doesnt matter how much they hate Its up you to be great. Don't be intimidated by their words Even if they taunt and jeer Show them you are immune to their jealously. Show them you are not moved by fear. Your destiny is so close. Prepare to take center stage. You don't have to be like everyone else. It's ok to be the renegade. So brush that dirt off your shoulders. And watch it fall to the floor. Tell all of your negative leeches, That they cannot feed on you no more. You can not harbor their shade. So make it loud and clear That you feel good about yourself. And only good vibes are allowed here.

Its You
It was your smile that chased my cares away. Being with you brightens up my day. You are so beautiful I think I otta pay. For whatever you want each and every day. You are the rainbow that comes after rain You are a song that I love to sing If you were a gem you'd be my pinkie ring. You shine so bright you are my bling bling. And I dont ever want to forget this feeling I never want to forget the way I feel Everything that we do with each other. Always seems to feel so real because Its you, its you, its you. You give life to this dead soul And I never wanna let you go. You give life to this dead soul And I gotta make sure you know. Its you. More beautiful than any supermodel You are the butterfly that I'd love to follow. Youre like a summer Sunday sun set You are my reason for not giving up yet. And just for you I'm gonna put you first And always remind you what youre really worth. You 're more precious than the finest gold. And the perfect reason to grow old.. With you.

Chase 'll
Illuminate my tomorrow But don't discard yesterday I will always long for your presence again. I'm searching for a glimpse So I walk in your shadows But its the memory of you that I hold so dear. A thousand smiles for a penny And I still can't find your match. You are the elusive beauty to my fleeing heart. For the sake of the chase. I'll let go, and run in the opposite direction. Hoping a to collide into you one last time. But if our paths never intersect And I'm unable to reverse time. Please note: I'll will forget not what you mean to me. My legs may get tired, And with these worn out soles, I'm secretly hoping that you will someday chase me.

True Values
Some are trusted with riches. But some will never learn You dont give out all your gold For nothing in return. And eventhough some will seek money As a fair exchange for time. Only fools will allow their pearls To be safeguarded by swines. You can travel for treasure Throughout the hidden places on Earth. But nothing is more valuable Than knowing your self worth. So don't ever be discouraged By what they say about you. No one knows your true essence. No one knows it better than you. Have confidence in yourself Let it ooze out of your pores Instead of envying the life of others, Take time to love yours. I know I may be stressing the issue But it's worth saying twice. Everyday you wake up, Is worth living your best life.

Do you see the value of your decisions In your quest for perfection? Did you achieve your goal? Was it worth it all? Did you help someone? Did you break their fall? Did you build a bridge To a helpless land? Or is it too much trouble To lend a hand? And with all of the plans That you set out to do Have you ever considered The needs of someone other than you? Take the challenge today. Only you can make the choice. Stand up for whats right. There is power in your voice.

Facts vs. Opinions
Opinions are a choice that we choose to share Like a burden is a choice that we choose to bear. Facts are more reliable Facts are undeniable Embracing the facts means denying your perception. Lining up reality with the original reflection. Facts only exists to reasonable minds. Facts will still exist when a lie is left behind. The exalting your opinion can lead to false conclusions. You always being right is a toxic delusion. Take the life out of a lie, I encourage you to give it a try. Decode the hidden Messages in your opinions, because the facts don’t lie.

Dreaming Awake
This dreamstate I'm living in All alone looking for a friend So many different faces and random places. So many complicated minds I just want the basic. Excuse me if I pass on a pretty mask I'm looking for something na-tu-ral with a lot of class. This dreamstate I'm all alone Trying to figure out how to turn my house into a home. This cycle of paying rent has no benefit. I think I need grassroots to make some cents. So I can teach the kids a better way to live their life. An attitude of gratitude and always doing right. So goodbye dreamstate its back to reality. Awake in my nightmares And real life tragedies. Stay woke I must. Staying up to adjust. I never knew how vunerable I am just by waking up..

Flawed
Sometimes I clap off beat Especially when I stomp my feet Sometimes I trip and stumble and when I’m nervous I might mumble  or cuss or say something i shouldnt say That could be so rude it might ruin your day And sometimes I can go off on a tangent  without giving it much thought.  The one thing me and my my mom have in common———-errrrrr sometimes I lose my train of thought.  Sometimes I see myself as a no one, a bad lover A bad son, and friend, and brother. ...I’m flawed.  And with all of my issues, quirks and undiagnosed anxieties. In can stand before you and say I love the flawed me. Because when I look in the mirror from my head to my toes.  I love everything about me especially my big funny looking nose.  I am my biggest critic So I don’t really need your shade. I am accepted by the One who is Ancient of days. l’m flawed to the core but my heart is light. Because when His strength is made perfect I know I’m gonna be alright. So go ahead an judge me but I wont be ashamed. I'm happy with who I am and I dont plan to change. Flawed people run the world and hopefully you can see. And when that time comes hopefully you can accept being flawed.

Mom
Mom is the best she can do it all. If I should ever have a need all I have to do is call. "Hi mom I would like a sandwich Ham and cheese on rye A glass of milk sounds great And while you're at it Throw in a slice of pie." And when I'm finished I'll set my plate down in the sink. My mom never hesitated to provide a cold and refreshing drink. I will never forget my mother and all of the love that she gave. She always looked out for me regardless of how I behave. She worked hard all day just to keep her family afloat. Despite all her bills she made sure we had coats, And hats and socks on our feet She sent us to church to learn how to pray before we eat. And she never stops giving. Just the other day she practically gave her whole paycheck away. .......To her kids She is a ride or die lady. She has always had our backs, Even when we drive her crazy. And that's why I love her, There is no other that can treat me better than my mother. She 's the best.

Not Here
I was birthed Raised And lived all of my days Here. But I was never taught Never on your thoughts Through life alone I fought You made it clear That you don't want me Here.. So I stand alone No blueprints, roadmaps, or stepping stones. Like being dropped in the water And not knowing how to swim. Either I learn to move like the fishies Or I become one of them. My personal development is based on things of no elequoence Maybe thats why I have no desire To acheive a status of revelance. I'm not going anywhere Unless you come around And when that time comes I'll be sure to leave town And just to be sure That I made myself Real loud and clear A life without you Is the equivalent Of being Here.

It doesn't take much To show that you care All you have to do is be there. Will you be there. Will you?

Fresh Start
To get your mind right. So that you can see things clearer. To chase away self hate, And all things inferior. First thing in the morning. Look yourself in the mirror And say I love you. I know saying it is not easy. And for some its even harder to do. Its may even come with a price Costing a painful tear or two. However, the most important love in the world. Is the love that comes from you. -So give yourself a smile. And if you only make one goal today, And accomplish nothing else. Take all you anxieties and fears Place them on the shelf, And with every strand in your being. I beg you to first love yourself.... (And if you're up to it, Find a way to love someone else.)

Ambitious Plans
Starting out our day by making plans Whatever we do lets always hold hands Meet up for lunch in the middle of the day. Get all dressed to go see a play. Make reservations for dinner for two. Take some time out on a Saturday so we can stroll through the zoo. Going out dancing making it a night to remember. Run away to our secret place one weekend in December. Lay out on the beach and watch the stars after dark. You get the food I'll bring the drinks So that we can picnic in the park. Instead of waiting on your birthday to treat you like a queen, Everyday that I'm able I wanna give you everything. My desire to make you happy is absolutely true. And these are just a few things I want to do with you.

Pillow Notes
I'm not waiting for you to wake up Just to steal a kiss Laying there next to you  Is a perfect reason to exist. No foundation and no shadow And still you're just fine  I'm just glad to be with you I'm just glad we shared some time. They say be careful what you ask for You never know what life has in store But with you I am so confident  I couldn't ask for anything mo're. And even cloudy days Won't chase away,   these feelings that i feel You bring out the sunshine in my life I think what we have is so sureal.

Sweet Dreams
I hold her hand in the nighttime So the terrors would go away: Untold visions come To invavade her sleep Makes her bawl up with her head to feet. What she's actually sees I dont really know She's not the type to let her feelings show. But whitout any questions I simply understand Why she wakes up and wants to hold my hand. Its her distress signal. A transfer of power Knowing I will fight her battles in the night hours. And I simply oblige No need to stress Because I know my baby girl needs her rest. So even if the sandman Can't get it right I will always be there to defend your night. Sweet Dreams.

Stoners
I stand at lakes edge To throw away our love stone Hoping some would skip around And maybe return home. But they dont skip They dont float They just fall to shallow grounds So many others are here Casting their love stones down. I used to think i was all alone Emotional and falling apart. But in reality the truth is We are all stoners of the heart Unable to end this love addiction Regretting the day it starts. And when it comes to your feelings Its extremely hard to quit. Once someone touches your soul You wanna take another hit. Telling yourself love drug please go away Only to be feining to get high another day....

Never tell her lies When you tell her you love her Make sure you look in her eyes. Put your arms around her. Let her know that she's safe Never give her a reason To have someone take your place. Instead of making demands Try sharing your heart. And if you never tried doing these things Maybe today you should start... As Friends first.

- Rain
Dont walk alone in the midst of your storm Think fast hold hands or maybe even lock arms. And during the heavy downpour cleave to each other Consider yesterday strangers as your long lost brothers. And cover anyone that cowers before you Regardless of how badly they want to tower for you. They are competely powerless without your hands. Protect them from the rain; And as the raindrops fall They will never understand. Why only in the presence of a storm You are considered a friend. So if it takes mud pies and grey skies For these broken bonds to mend Selfishly speaking I hope the rain never ends.

Streams to Waterfalls
This is our history We started out as streams Flowing in the same direction We merged together and formed The most beautiful river We gave life to all around us We were a refuge to those Dying of thirst But winter came our flow wasn't as stong Our place of refuge has become Barren and desolate The air is dank and now Our surroundings define us.. The ground consumed the best of me And you were commited to the sky And now only a rainy day Can bring us together again. Dying for waterfalls is how you Left this old man river. I never knew you were my life giver.

Shelf Life
I'm not so sure about the shelf I was told to place you there But I was not confident I could show you How much that I care And how much happiness You bring when you come around I placed my feeling on the shelf I really want my love to come down. The shelf is so misleading If you've never been in love Its like living without feelings Or never experiencing a hug. Living a lifetime of bliss Longing to steal a kiss. Whats the point in waiting on the one If you have to wait like this. They told me to put my feelings in a box They said I need to move slow But without sunlight and care How can my feelings grow. They say go out and see the world Enjoy what life has in store.. But I think to myself They must never had these feelings before.

Unit 55
This lonely place welcoms me. Something like a comfort zone. No need for first impressions or introductions. All my thoughts can rest here. My insecutities find strength in this lonely place. Here I am king and no one can dethrone me. The sound solitude is a mixture of silence and sighs. Tears don't fall here. A mask of rage covers my face. No smiles needed. I'm safe here. But outside my boundaries the fight awaits. They pick and accuse and destroy my worth. I cry sometimes. Inferiority is mistaken as imtimidation. The vultures won't leave me alone. I'm nothing outside my lonely place.

saturday morning
Saturday Morning with nowhere to go I made you breakfast  You know that slight burnt toast. You said it was your favorite And smiled with ever crunch  And that's how knew.. that I love you. And I don't think  The angels know  that you slipped away  And if God finds out That would surely explain, the rain. On a Sautrday mornin.

Fantasy Girl
I'll always wait for you to wake up You are like a dream to me And watching you step out of bed  Is like my dreams coming into reality I like watching you sleep  It's the most relaxing thing To see my aquine queen  In her most peaceful state of being. I would really like to make plans with you  And if possible all day hold hands with you No need to speak we can enjoy the day And when daylight takes flight We can talk the night away. You are so amazing to me I am definitely a lucky fella  To lay my head down with Sleeping Beauty  And wake up next to Cinderella You are a good mother to your kids Your days can only get better. You're on my mind like all the time  And that's the reason for this letter.

Dougly
There’s this kid in my class  His name is Dougly We used to be friends We used to be buddies But one day we got in a fight  And we got real muddy And my teacher called my mom  She said I was acting thugly So my mom was upset She thinks I play too roughly But it all started in class Everyone was feeling bubbly Laughing and telling jokes Everything was lovely Then Dougly said something mean He said my pants looked like Huggies So in return I told the class His mom last name was UGGGLLLLYYYYY. We used to be friends  We used to be buddies  But after that day  I no longer talk to Dougly. It's such a shame now how  we used to get along And how we let mean words  Destroy our genuine bond. I really miss the times we  laughed, played and had fun.  Because when it came to being friends Dougly was my number one. I know now what  being a friend means So from now on no fights or saying mean things  And if we were to ever cross paths again  I'll do whatever it takes To be Dougly's best friend.

Chocolate Makes Everything Better
Sometimes when I feel nervous, And I need think things through I tend to reach in my pocket To find something to chew Sometimes I find pencils Sometimes I find peppermints And I know it's going to be a long day When all I find is pocket lent At the end of the week when I know I have a test I stock up on assorted chocolate And I hide it all in my desk. So when I don't know the answer To a hard problem in front of me Is sneak a piece of candy in my mouth To set my clouded mind free. When I eat my chocolate I love how it melts away It brings back many good memories Like blue skies in May It makes me feel So careless and free Whenever I'm eating chocolate I'm helping my anxiety. When others get anxious They get mad and cause trouble I just sit back and chill out Because I am eating my truffles. So when I get engulfed By the cares of the day I eat my favorite candy And let my troubles melt away.

Hope's Door is a Glass Ceiling
I'm seeking a resurrection from a lonely glass grave. In a hopeless state that no one can save. The ground beneath me is warming up. The soles of my feet are scaring but Its so strange that I can't feel any pain This heat is lifting me to the sky like reverse effects of rain. I'm fanning my arms because I don't want to die But the ashes are forming wings on me and now I can fly. The tomb is moving I'm not sure on what to do I'm moving closer to the surface I think I'm going to burst through. So I press and,,, I push,,, There's no turning back. With one more thrust I can feel this glass ceiling, CRRRAACCKK Glass and dirt are falling to the fire-ry floor Now I can finally see on the other side of Hope's Door. Haaaayyyy!!!! Take a look at me I'm free. Flapping my wings that the fire designed for me. Every thing that held me down is now in the below. The sky is my stage and my flight is my show. Rebirth from the fire but I still look down. Searching for another trapped in the ground. And if I see someone struggling to break free. I wont hesitate to help them out because that used to be me.

Jimmy's New Bike
Jimmy has a new bike  And it goes really really fast  I tried to ride it last week  But I fell in the muddy grass I had sticky mud all over me From my toes to my chin. And the only thing Jimmy said to me was Cool- go do it again.  So I did it again and this time I didn’t fall. Because I made sure to jump off  Right before his bike crashed into the wall. But Jimmy wasn’t mad,  suprisingly he was glad  That I didn’t get hurt because that would've been bad. Even at a young age Jimmy had a calling He supported those close to him  In the midst of their falling He took no pleasure in seeing Someone stumble or trip But instead he offered a hand  Whenever they needed a lift. It's important that we all  have people like Jimmy around Someone to bear our burdens  whenever we hit the ground. And encourage us to keep going Knowing that we might fall again.. That's the definition of being  a real good friend. Jimmy has a new bike And so do I. We ride our bikes together. Real friendships don't die.

Class Pet
They put me in time out  But I didn't do anything's bad That ol' mean teacher Says I'm the worst student he's ever had But he don't know what he's talking about He cant even see all the things everyone else is doing He only sees michevious me. I try to do the right thing I try to do what's good. But there are still times I don't  Do all the things I should. Like the time I brought my frog to class He likes to hop everywhere. He hopped right out of my hands one day And into the teachers chair. My frog was supposed to be a gift From me to the entire class. I thought that it would boots my grades I though it would help me pass. And everything seemed alright By the way my friends would laugh and cheer. But when my teacher finally walked in His face froze up in fear. Because when he saw a frog in his chair, He started to scream and shout. Then he looked at me with fury in his eyes  and said take your frog and get out. My teacher had to change his pants, because everybody could see, That when he saw my little frog, He let out a little pee. So I had to take a time out. My frog had to go with me too. We were both trapped in this little room  Like animals in a zoo. So if you want to do something for your class, Please mark this one off your list. Because if your teacher is like mine, He'll probably be pissed.

Dirt
I wrote this poem to let you know That the dirt in this place as to go And as you read this poem you will see,  That I don’t dig dirt and dirt don’t dig me. It causes too much havoc in this society. And it makes extra work for you and me.  Believe it or not but its is true, Let me give you an example or two. Dirt is the stuff that you wash out of your hair. It makes your booty bite your underwear. When it gets in your eye you’ll cry and not laugh. It will make you take a double bubble bath.  It will make you buy a mop and a broom. It will even make you clean yourq room.  Now I want to erase dirt from this land.  Although long ago we used to be friends. We used to play outside in the good ol’ sandbox. And when I went home I would have dirt in my socks. I never knew dirt was trying to get me in trouble.  Until one day I got a whoopin’.  With my dirty ol’ sand shovel.  From that day on I left dirt alone. I made sure I didn’t bring any dirt home. But then one day when I fell in the street. I noticed there was dirt up under my feet. And from that day on we became foes.  Because dirt was the reason I fell off my toes.  The reason why I’m telling you about my former friend, Is because you’ll never know when he’ll strike again. So let this be a warning from me to you, And look out for dirt before he gets you too.
