The Answer

"Am i scared to die?" You ask me
Well, I am i must confess
In answer to your question then
A honest answer "Yes"
But ask me "Am i scared to live?"
Then this is my reply 
"I'm more afraid of living than i am afraid to die"

Masterpiece

If i had a gun right now
I'd show you how I'm feeling
Reveal the thoughts within my mind
Once sprayed upon the ceiling 
It might not tell you very much
Though all is on display 
This art of mine a masterpiece 
Of how i feel today

A Psychiatric Thought

 I came to you for help
Begging, pleading, needing, bleeding
You fobbed me off with pills prescribed 
Through your professional gaze 
You spoke to me in jargon 
Then you sent me on my way
I took your pills like clockwork 
Which then left me in this daze 
So now i ask you this...
If i should kill somebody now!
Would it not be your fault?
You never called me back!
Appointments promised didn't come
Just more of your damn pills
Would you not be the responsible  
For my drug crazed attack? 
I will leave you with this darker thought
While you carry on with others 
Who pretend they have a problem 
So they get their benefit 
And all the time you spend with shirkers 
My mind plays a little game
And as i sit here waiting 
Personalities may split

Oh, Jah. I Want To Be Positive


Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh sweet Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 

But I have seen the white man, he hunt us down
I have seen my people run
So many black man brought to ground
From many white man gun 
I ask you Jah, I need to know
Why we live in fear?
Did not creation born this man?
Did not Jah bring us here?

Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 

But i have seen the fear in black man eyes 
I have known much of his pain
I have stood my ground so many times
But knocked down i again 
Yet you are here, you with me always
I keep you here within 
Where white man cannot find you then
As he not touch my skin 

Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 

You gave us herb that grows from earth
Yet white man criticize 
He make it bad yet his tobacco 
He does legalize 
We born his slave, we never free
We taken from our home 
Without you Jah, i ask of this
Would i not be alone?

Oh Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative 
Oh sweet Jah, I want to be positive 
I don't want to be negative

Great Spirit


I thank you Great Spirit
For the warmth of the sun
For the trees that protect us
For the river that run
I thank you for rain
For the fire and the land
I give thanks for the life line
You etched on my hand
I give thanks for the moon 
I give thanks for the earth 
And i thank you for children 
You guide from their birth
I thank you for stars
That will show us the way
And i thank you Great Spirit
For giving this day

Wings

In the place where i was lost
I couldn't find my wings
All i found was darkness 
And so many scary things
My feathers had been missing 
In the shrouding of the night
I found my body grounded
Not a chance of taking flight 
But an angel saw me in the dark
She put a light in me
I opened up my tired eyes 
And found that i could see
My wings were left unbroken 
So i put them on display 
The daylight had returned again....
I stood up... Then flew away

The Wolves (Are Howling Sorrow)


If you leave i beg thee
Untie these binds that shackle me
If you go i ask this
Wipe clean your bitter Judas kiss
But if you stay, remain here
Don't let love run colder still 
And if you stay, refrain here 
Don't feed from me until...

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out as the moon arises 

If you leave i beg thee
Leave the darkness here with me
And if you go i ask you
Leave me strength to pull me through
But if you stay, remain here
Don't let love grow colder still
And if you stay, refrain here
Don't drink from me until...

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out as the moon arises 

If you leave, believe me
All our walls would fall apart
And if you go, i plead thee
Unwind the wire from my heart
But if you say, remain here
Don't let love run colder still
And if you stay, refrain here
Don't drain me, not until...

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out as the moon arises 

The wolves are howling sorrow
Singing songs in their disguises 
The skins that they all borrow 
Call out with... the moons surprises
