Calms the heart and lessens pain

 Oh the soothingness of the rain

It calms the heart and lessens pain

Falling gently, it'll lift us up

Like a herbal in a cup...


Softly whispering... that God is here

Drop by drop the atmosphere

Holds the greatness of the Great

Sending showers..but not too late..


Like the rythm of God's heart

Pitter pattering gives a start

To our healing of our hurt

How He loves us  ...proves our worth


Listen briefly or at length

God is whispering showing strength

Rain is falling rain is grace

For every person ..every place

Stop it..

 Stop hitting my brother..just because he is black

It's never okay, to be acting like that

Choking and squeezing and denying him air

Where in this world are such actions found fair?


Stop mocking my sister... she isn't your toy

You curse her and use her and ruthlessly employ

Your cunning-ness, and evilness and ruthless white power

To strain from her willingness your empire and dollar


Stop labeling them, everyone .. who is differing from you:

Like ..you are so perfect and can discern what is true???

You mount up your riches and  climb up your throne

If only, you could see them..the miseries you've sown


Stop seeking out followers, to spread out your hate

This rampage of prejudice  is way out of date

The time glass is emptying and the angels await

I see them, they're coming, with judgment and fate

Return again...

 Oh, writing soul, take up your pen

Write songs of love from deep within

Open up your soul stream and share it all

Return again to your inner call


Oh, singing heart, let's hear you sing

Open up your voice and let it ring

The world is waiting and you are too

Return again to what's part of you


Oh teaching soul speak out again 

To yearning hearts ..so eager within

Share out your wisdom and your all

Return to teach them great and small


Oh spiritual giant shine out your light

Our hungry world has lost it sight

We need your words we need your care

Return to share it everywhere..


Oh ailing world ...so wounded deep

Seek out your God who longs to keep

Our hearts our minds our very souls

Return to Him ..He'll hold you close

My untold story

Because I couldn't agree with them and say that they were right
They abandoned me all together and wouldn't even write
They gossiped amongst each other and created  an empty fable
That they would pass  around each other whenever my name came up at the table

You see, my life was so much different than the one they passed around
A saintly and earthly mother is not someone I knew or found
So because I could not claim it or agree with the  things they said
They treated me like I was the enemy or someone diseased or dead

Must I pretend to never have suffered it: the abuses I knew and felt
From the person they raise to sainthood while all I knew was hell
Must I keep my mouth shut forever and never speak this pain out loud?
Tragedies and untold stories they cover up with their pretentious shroud..

Unless you've  walked the road I've walked on and felt the strap of pain
Don't tell me I've no reason to shout out about memories that still remain
While you paint up ..your pretty pictures to soothe your guilty minds
I still sort through the broken pieces of my childhood's stored up finds

Can you hear..can you see?

The skies are all crying,they drop down their tears
Buckets of sorrows and triumphs and fears
Weeping and sighing as mother earth cries
Laughter and heartaches and heartfelt goodbyes

Clouds are all forming the thunders they roar
Earth starts to quiver and shake in its floor
Statements are made through breezes and wind
Listen and hear want they speak to us  within

Waves are all crashing and seas overflow
Mountain once standing are leveled so low
Someone is trying to speak out to us here
Can we not hear it ...this loud atmosphere?

Voices from peoples who have  long passed away
Come through the moments that make up each day
See how the stories from our yesterdays return
Lesson stills linger... we still need to learn

How long will it take for us to see and to know
That love is the reason we were sent here below
We have all wandered away from our callings within
And settled for things that allow  divisions to begin

Solidarity

I stand with you, the black, the white, the person with voiceless cry
The immigrant, the Asian, the Native American ...whom we  all deny;
And I cry and I weep and I sing my song of  coming evolutions
Knowing that knowledge is the only way we'll come up with stayig solutions

I run with you, my friend, my foe, my neighbor I have never met
And try to seek for reasons that we all try to forget
The atrocities..the shames ..the things we ought to remember
So that we don't let them rise up again like some flame from an ember

I die with you the abandoned, the wronged the shamefully alone
And wonder and wonder...why you could never feel at  home
With this world of great plenty and with more than enough
You deserved so much better and didn't deserve any of this stuff
