Moral Murder (Poetry)

photo from: http://artcriesout.com/

Our government has failed us… the law is corrupt
It’s THEIR fraudulent hands that should be in handcuffs
Paid off by the killers… to remain silent
Dividends are more important than dividing the violence
When living in the times that Leviathan spoke
Love is not in attendance… the people need hope
They need to know that the hands that are meant to protect them
Won’t get drunk with the poison of power… and infect them
So if the common person kills for the better of the nation
For the better of the world… and it’s future generations
Should he be condemned... for the criminal’s termination,
Because the government officials showed constant hesitation?
Must we judge the act alone… or the purpose behind it?
Should we focus on the means… or let the ends define it?
Morality is more complex than wrong and right
But there’s still no way to justify the taking of a life
If you fight fire with flames… morality is withdrawn
For every action there’s a reaction… and the cycle goes on

Perception (Poetry)



The masses are watching... their eyes wide open
Watching you mix and digest your potion
The same potion mixed by that serpent long ago
The one who slithered deception... and brought God’s people below
It’s all perception... when prescribed with this prescription
It's all deception... which is why there's division
It's all for an act... it's all for an image
It’s to be proactive... in order to disguise your blemish
Creativity is stunted... spiritual growth is forbidden
Because that only occurs when your ears don't listen
That only occurs when your third eye sees vivid
And your desire to control shall slowly diminish
Fitting into a group... shows harmony absent
And I love harmony... she buried control in a casket
Harmony doesn't seem to be concerned with perception
Or maybe that's just how she wants the story to read
Maybe that's just how she wants to be perceived

Kamikaze Love (Poetry)

The path looked familiar… she’s been here before
She’s gone that route… unlocked that door
Between love and lust… she declares the war
Within the chambers of her heart… where fidelity is stored
Once again… the fidelity is what she began to ignore
The karma of her past then began to pour
This one way road… heading straight for the floor
Love shouldn’t be this way… there must be more

This was the problem… she fell in love with materials
The clothes on his carcass… as opposed to his spiritual
She fell in love with his status… in love with the checks
She fell in love with his physique… in love with the sex
The hands of Satan awaited… she fell to the depths
She fell so many times… the only thing left was death
She now pilots her plane… you can see her above
Trying to save the rest of her gender… from kamikaze love

They Say (Poetry)

photo from: http://oceansbridge.com

They say they’re anti-violent… they say they love the youth
They say a lot of things… that doesn’t make it the truth
They say they want change… they want to make a difference
It’s been a year and some change… and I don’t see the difference
The pastor says that the end is near
The politician says we have nothing to fear
The Atheist says when you die you disappear
The Rasta says with pot he can see things clear
The unemployed say ‘nobody cares about us’
The prosperous say ‘there’s nobody you can trust’
The prostitute says prosper off of a greedy man’s lust
The priest says nothing… just stares in disgust
The scientist says the universe is a machine
The missionary says God reigns supreme
The humanitarian says we’re causing climate change
The psychologist says it’s all in our brains
The history books say lies… no truth remains
The professor says nothing… his beliefs are tamed
The doctor says nothing… just hands you a prescription
The lawyer says he’s crazy… send him off to prison
Everybody has an opinion… everybody has the solution
But without unity… there will be no resolution
Without unity there will be no evolution
Just thousands of lost souls… all disillusioned

Entertainment (Poetry)

photo from: http://dancingokra.com/

Violence... deception... the things we speak against
The things we detest... but never try to prevent
We say we hate vitriol... we hate destruction
But we pay to watch it... deep inside we love it
We pretend to love life... as the world turns
But we are all entertained... whenever the world burns
We justify it by saying, 'it must be what they deserve'
No sympathy... no tears... no love... no concern
This love for destruction is starting to divide us
And the destruction of love is beginning to guide us
Our own country was built off of exploiting oppression
In the land of the free... it has become our obsession
These lovers of destruction will soon be taught a destructive lesson
When that army of three sixes… battles the angelic seven
I wonder if they'll still be entertained... during the time of Armageddon?
Or is that what it will take… for us to realize we’re headed in the wrong direction?

Faux Pas (Poetry)

photo from: http://artcriesout.com

Yield not to the ways of man
Learn to rebel… learn to take a stand
Yield not to the ways of tradition
Learn to provoke change… learn to make a difference
Question authority… until the truth is told
Stay away from the grass that glitters with gold
Wear not the garments of the accepted regime
They are masking insecurities… nothing is how it seems
Read their books with a curious mind
Unless you use your own eyes… to the truth you are blind
Re-examine their politicians… and see how they deceive
As the world follows the mold… and lets them lead
Reject the ways of this planet that is third from the sun
Reject it… because of the blind misleader it has become
Yield not to the ways of man
Learn to rebel… learn to take a stand
