    I live my life in triplicate to the third power
    Where none of my responses are the same
    And they are further multiplied by thoughts, feelings and dreams
    As if one dimension was too much to fathom and not enough to add up to truth

    So I design myself in ways that a myriad of mazes would never catch me off guard
    Long enough for any to define how same I was or praise my uniqueness beyond a sigh
    Like humans ought not to be built that way
    That they neither conform or rebel separately
    Instead it is all done at once so as not to miss any bases
    For what is the fun of playing baseball alone
    If all the players were not in place
    And both teams did not equally win a grand slam
    It just would not be enough and how believable is it when boldly done

    I am in regret at the thought of how well I did it all...to the point that I mastered my game
    At the moment of awareness that I discovered my game mastered me
    Now I am found in a twilight-zone of reality where I am asked to choose life or death or
    Forever be stuck in a game of little bunny foo foo
    Now I am neither success nor failure and it is amazing that I got here
    Furthermore every trick I ever taught myself now is a tool for other things

    They say angels have wings and I wonder under whose wings did I arrive
    Being asked to believe and live and do unto every man and child
    I am found in a moment of perplexed wondering
    Asking how free have I made my God lately
    So he can stop walking in my footsteps and revert to his
    For I know he is tired of my shoes and the cage I made him sit in
    I recount the copies of myself and find it to be an even dozen
    So I think out loud if I am both simple and complex …
    What will it take for a man to safely love me

    Love thee
    Safe keeping in this third Deminision
    One part real-Sometimes critisism
    I walk with the shadows
    I fear no.......
    Let me loosen up this cage
    Maybe make a way
    Maybe clear the maze
    Zone becomes light
    No twilight in sight
    I got plenty batters
    More on base
    Everybody hit a Grand Slam today
    A dozen times we say
    Patrice is our hearts
    C you safe my laday
    Queens in the building

    Oh dern
    You went there
    Caught the vision and took a leap
    Asked me to a game of wonder

    Can I have a bat
    Cause i caught sight of some bases
    That once I start I will not miss
    All dressed up and off the bench

    Tantrum done flipped the lid on it
    Buldozing dimensions and time zones
    To exhale moments of peace
    Understanding gifts sometime comes in verbal packages
    And sometimes... there need be no excuse for the occasion

    No excuses for the occasions
    I have perfect situations
    I got the time
    If you want it you can take it
    The deminisions of my life
    Are God-You-& We
    God's lights will bring
    Peace Love & Harmony
    Strength through the whereabouts
    So much understanding the blessing
    Thats what I am talking about
    From the rockies im gone scream it out
    Let the people hear me out
    No excuses my times is out

    On the wind came his voice
    Make the moment into a holiday
    I ran down the sreet to chase the words
    And it passed me
    Cause I made the mistake of using my feet
    As folks gathered I asked them if they heard it
    A gentle voice speaking in the wind

    They were perplexed
    For the wind came with a magnificent pull
    Yet no words did they hear
    Encouraging me yet still to take the journey

    So I pulled myself to take another leap
    When the wind came around pulling me into eye
    I raised my hand up and reached
    When we got to the destination
    I found a butterfly

    The voice delivered laughter
