bloody sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
 Wipe your tears away Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And it's true we are immune when fact is fiction and TV reality 
And today the millions cry We eat and drink while tomorrow they die 
The real battle just begun to claim the victory Jesus won on

And the battle’s just begun There’s many lost but tell me who has won 

The trench is dug within our hearts And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart



Window of Beauty

“Through a window of beauty
I see your sweet smile
Like the freshness of morning
within every mile

Like dew in the morning
my soul sparks within
Dark clouds overhead
all seem to grow dim… “


by Daniel Lanois
My angel I promised her we'd be dressed in a cloud
 Standing on pillars on fire singing out loud
 Shot from truth and love, not darkness
 With the moon under your feet
 Where birth goes on and rides terror
 My shine will be complete
With your fire your fire
 My tremolo
 You're my fire
Every so softly it grows when you don't wear your armor
 Crushing the burden and confusion sour
 Trembling high on every leaf
 Raining light down on your belief
 Oh my angel unburdened by the race
 I'll go down burning in your embrace
Don't take away my shine
 My shine is all I have
 My heat, my love, my beauty and my glad
 It worries me sometimes that I want love
 And live a life of sad


free n me…

I feel these 4 walls closing in
 My face up against the glass
 I'm looking out... hmm
Is this my life I'm wondering
 It happened so fast
 How do I turn this thing around
 Is this the bed I chose to make
 Its greener pastures I'm thinking about hmm
 Wide open spaces far away
Wild horses I wanna be like you
 Throwing caution to the wind
All I want is the wind in my hair
 To face the fear but, not feel scared
Wish I could recklessly love, like I'm longing to
I see the girl I wanna be
Jumping head first headlong without a thought
 To act and damn the consequence
How I wish it could be that easy
 But fear surrounds me like a fence
 I wanna break free
Breaklessly abandoning my self before you
 I wanna open up my heart tell him how I feel
I wanna run with the wild horses
--"Wild Horses"

its a white black…colored lady.

THE COLOR BLACK, An Acrostic Poem
Harmonizes well with other colors
Often unfairly stigmatized
Lithe & lasting
Omnipotent & omnipresent

with mystery

I am the beauty,
The beauty in the summer “the heat”,
 We ignore it.
I am the beauty,
The beauty in the winter “frozen cold”,  We ignore it.
I am the beauty,
The beauty in the fall “dying life”,  We ignore it.
I am the beauty,
I am the beauty.
The beauty in the spring “birth of nature”,  We ignore it.
I am earth,
I bare all seasons,
And you ignore me.
by Victoria Martinez.

its a beginning…

"... life is a dream come true
 It all began...
Now I have found what I am looking for
 ...your beauty and nothing more
Beauty is the sensation of your heart
Beauty is in your smile
Beauty is a rose that falls
 Beauty is in your heart that touch mine
 Beauty is in our hands that touch
Beauty is what surrounds you
 Beauty is in the air and water
 Beauty is in your eyes as they glaze upon me
...Beauty is in the world
 That we have created
 A victory of passion...
Beauty of passion
There is beauty of a kind
 That knows no boundaries of time
 The shining part of you inside
That you can never hide
 What can I say to thee
 That touches beauty-love
To embrace what I see
 A truly lovely piece of art as you
As we leave this world
 ... beauty will prevail for you holds dear
How beauty shines from you...
To walk upon by endless others
 For beauty will last...
 Your beauty
 My dream
--Roger Blaschke
