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

Weather warning

Cicadas are singing their most soulful song
Wind storms are coming..and it wont be too long
We see them at a distance but right now, we'll  sing
Wake up and get ready for these wind storms will sting..

The elements are all charged up and the air fills up quick
Moisture and humidity are all a good fit
For storm clouds,  now forming, and creating a song:
Hurricanes and tornadoes are part of this throng

The Atlantic is warming and a haze starts to form
Like weatherman, all certain, these conditions.. will warn
Of tempests and turbulence and waters that flood
This year will rise up like a most memorable one....

Take heed and be preparing for these storms, they will rage
Like warriors they will head out and headline each page
Battering the coast lands and slaughtering the earth
We won't be able to believe it but it'll happen for sure...

And the rain falls down

I am watching right now ..the flowing.. falling rain
How she soothes and she heals every semblance of pain
Gently dropping from the Heavens and soaking all within
Mother earth is all refreshed and is feeling good again

And the rain falls down
On the thirsty, cracking ground
And she soothes every heart
Who will allow her to start
The river of her healing..the river of her love
She comes like a messenger from the good God above

The days have been heated and the nights feel like a desert
They're motionless and lifeless and drained us, of every effort
Creatures want to  rest now when they should want to jump
Scorching days of summer cause the a/c to run and run

And the rain falls down
On the thirsty, cracking ground
And she soothes every heart
Who will allow her to start
The river of her healing..the river of her love
She comes like a messenger from the good God above

The heart has to struggle.. the lungs stick together
At the heights of this hotness and this inclement weather
How I hurt for the hurting and sigh for myself
As I long for a change in the story weathermen tell


And the rain falls down
On the thirsty, cracking ground
And she soothes every heart
Who will allow her to start
The river of her healing..the river of her love
She comes like a messenger from the good God above

Stop acting like you will never catch it....

Let's all start, to be more reasonable: recognizing, how this all can end
If we don't see this virus for what it's becoming...it surely isn't our friend
Working together. we can conquer it; but, running around crazy we cannot
Let's start taking, the necessary precautions; and start acting like we ought

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to  be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny

Each day on the news we   hear it... as the number of cases and deaths climb
There are those who are acting so foolish, that they baffle our intelligent mind
People paying no heed to any warnings: running here and running over there
Continuing to  cough and sneeze and party on ..like there isn't any virus in the air

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny

Deadly vapors are spreading around, through each molecule, that circles about
Though we cannot see them at all..it's true . from each atom, they seem to shout:
"If you breathe me in..you will become me and I invite you all to take me in"
Corona virus is like a devil  lying:  it will trick you time and time again

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny

Stop acting like you can... just..conquer it like you have the right to disagree
This virus doesn't care if you will riot it will suffocate us.. you and me
So if you're  not being careful or even listening to the warnings that are around
Do not be surprised, if, in another moment  traces of Covid-19 are in you found...

Corona virus is not a something to be joking about or to be protesting for
It's a deadly disease that has no discrimination and will enter through any door
Taking lives from every sector.. this infectious giant is coming after you and me
We can take our necessary precautions or succumb to it...like destiny
