    BEFORE I START
    LET ME SLOW DOWN
    AND
    PEACEFULLY
    GATHER MYSELF
    I WAS PUT HERE
    TO SPEAK OF THIS LIFE
    THIS LIFE
    SO FULL OF BEAUTY
    THIS LIFE
    SO FULL OF PAIN
    THIS LIFE
    LIFE IN WHICH I SHALL ALWAYS FIGHT
    THIS LIFE FOR WHICH ADAM AND EVE ARE THE ONES TO BLAME
    WE KNOW THE STORY
    BUT WE DO THE SAME
    PEOPLE FORGIVE ME
    BUT ITS ALL IN VAIN
    POETIC BLUES SINGER LIKE THE GREAT SAM COOKE
    IM JUST WAITING ON MY CHANGE
    AND WHEN WILL IT CHANGE
    THE HOMELESS MAN ON THE PARK BENCH
    JUST WANTS CHANGE
    NO HE JUST WANTS CHANGE
    THIS CRUEL LIFE
    SO FULL OF MISERY
    BUT EVEN THE LILLIES BLOOM EVERY SPRING
    AND THE BABIES SoUND OFF WHEN THE ATMOSPHERE FIRST CONNECTS WITH THEIR HARMLESS BODIES
    NOW WHO GOT SOUL
    I REALLY NEED TO KNOW
    BORN INTO SIN
    BORN INTO SIN
    MIND RAPED INTO SIN

    MY BRAIN BECAME THE ORCHARD OF
    HAPPINESS
    AND GOD BLESS THE MOTHERS AND THE FATHERS
    GOD BLESS THE BASTARDS AND THE ORPHANS
    MAY GOD BLESS THE THIEVES AND THE MURDERS
    MAY GOD BLESS ME
    AND MY YOUNG SOUL SPEAKS OF
    OLE TIME KNOWLEDGE
    LIFE CAN OFTEN GET TECHNICAL
    AND YOU WILL NOT BE PREPARED SOLELY BY THE UNIVERSITY
    NO BACHELORS DEGREE
    CANT MAKE UP FROM THE BLOOD SHED AT THE FOOT OF THE SINNERS TREE

    (THOUGHTS)

    Poets speak of all there is, the good, the bad, and everything in between. As much as things change, some things curiously remain the same. Keep letting those thoughts flow onto paper poet of the week.
