Noise One Hundred Seventeen

 
THE OPPOSITE OF TALKING ISN’T LISTENING.
THE OPPOSITE OF TALKING IS WAITING
 
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN
WHAT IS THERE BETWEEN
 
LISTENING AND WAITING
ACKNOWLEDGING
 
WHAT IS BEING SAID  
IS THIS SOMETHING FOR MY TOOL SHED
 
AS I LIVE MY LIFE FROM DAY TO DAY
KEEPING ABOVE THE FRAY
 
MANY FOLKS COMMUNICATING
THROUGH BICKERING
 
IN HIGH PLACES LIKE THE CONGRESS THAT WE SEE
ARE THEYANYTHING LIKE YOU AND ME
 
SHOULD PEOPLE LISTEN MORE THAN THEY DO
AND WITHDRAW
 
FROM QUICK OPINIONS
AND AFFILIATIONS
 
WITH THE DRUMMER THAT WE HEAR
FROM THE PUPPETEER
 
THAT SPEAKS QUICKLY
SOMETIMES ABRASIVELY
 
IS NOT THE LINCHPIN
TO RELATIONSHIPS DISCIPLINE
 
IN WHAT WE DO AND WHAT WE SAY
IN OUR DAY TO DAY WORD INTERPLAY
 
DOES IT BOTHER US WHEN THE LISTENER
FINDS AWAY TO FILTER
 
WHAT IS BEING SAID
LEAVING THE CONTENT MISREAD
 
WHY DO WE FIND IT HARD TO WAIT OUR TURN
BEFORE WE GET TO THE LECTURN
 
TO DO OTHER THEN
THIS LEAVES THE PITCHMEN
 
AND HIS WORDS
FLYING NORTHWARD
 
NOT TO OUR EARS
FOR TO LISTEN INTERFERES
 
WITH OUR NEED TO PREPARE
WHAT WE WANT TO SHARE
 
NO WONDER THEN, THAT PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
CONTINUE TO THINK ABOUT THEIR OWN WELFARE
 
 NEXT TIME WHEN YOU COMMUNICATE
 VALIDATE
 
THE SPEAKERS’ THOUGHTS
SO YOU CAN CORRECTLY CONNECT THE DOTS
 
WHEN IT IS YOUR TURN
TO VOICE YOUR CONCERN

Noise – One Hundred Sixteen

HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT HOW FORTUNES ARE MADE

FIRST BY THOSE WHO ARE NOT AFRAID
 
TO TAKE THE WALK
AND MAKE THE RIGHT TALK
 
TO CONVINCE THOSE THAT HAVE THE MOST
TO BE A HOST
 
TO OTHER PEOPLE’S DREAMS
NOT NECESSARILY TO THE EXTREMES
 
BUT GIVING JUST ENOUGH
OF THE RIGHT STUFF
 
TO ALLOW THE RECIPIENT
TO HAVE ACCOMPLISHMENT
 
THAT WILL SHOOT THEM FAR ABOVE
WITH A LITTLE SHOVE
 
FINDING PEOPLE TO DO THIS FOR SOMEONE
ELSE IS AN ACTION
 
THAT INVOLVES BELIEF
EVEN IF IT IS BUT BRIEF
 
IN WHAT SOME ONE ELSE IS TRYING TO DO
FOR THEIR BREAKTHROUGH
 
TO HANG BACK
OF THE PACK
 
IS NOT THE WAY
TO STAY
 
IN THE GAME
AND GAIN NO FAME
 
INSTEAD GO TO THE FRONT OF THE CLASS
IF YOU WANT TO SURPASS
 
OTHER PLAYERS
EXHIBITERS
 
SHOWING THEIR WARES
THAT LEADS THEM TO MILLIONAIRES
 
TIMIDITY GETS YOU NO WHERE
BUT SITTING IN DESPAIR

Noise – One Hundred Fifteen

HOW MANY TIMES DOES VIOLENCE COME PAST YOUR DOOR
BEFORE
 
YOU TRY TO SHUT IT OUT
TELL IT TO TAKE ANOTHER ROUTE
 
TODAY SO MUCH CONFUSION AND WAR
ON THE RADAR
 
THE UNCERTAINTY OF THE TIMES
MANY CRIMES
 
WITHIN MAN’S INHUMANITY TO MAN
COVERING A WIDE SPAN
 
THROUGH OUT THE WORLD’S SPACE
EACH INCIDENT MAKES A CASE
 
FOR A BELIEF
OWNED EVEN BY A THIEF
 
WHO WANTS TO HAVE IT ALL
SO INSTALL
 
IT IN THEIR HANDS
THIS IS HIS OR HER DEMANDS
 
TO TAKE AWAY FROM THOSE WHO
HAVE WHILE EVERYONE ELSE MAKES DO
 
THEY QUESTION THE INEQUALITY
FOR THOSE WHO ARE HUNGRY
 
THAT FEEL THEY HAVE NOT GOTTEN A FAIR SHAKE
OR BREAK
 
WHEN THE HAND OUTS WERE GOING ON
WHEREUPON
 
THE RICH GOT RICHER AND THE POOR
LEFT GOING FROM DOOR-TO-DOOR
 
THEY NOW FILL THE STREETS
CHANTING THE MISTREATS
 
AND WON’T PUT UP WITH IT ANY LONGER
THEY ARE NOW THEIR OWN ADVOCATOR
 
NEW IDEAS  WALK ALONG WITH THEM
PEACE IS IN THEIR HEM
 
WHERE IT WILL END
THERE ARE THOSE WHO FEEL AN OFFEND
 
AND LASH OUT AT THE CROWD
WHO STAND STEADFAST AND PROUD
 
YOU WILL NOT MOVE ME THIS TIME
I WILL CONTINUE TO CLIMB
 
UP THE LADDER TO ACHIEVE MY END
 I WILL NOT BEND
 
I NEED RESOLUTION
OR A SOLUTION
 
TO HELP MEET MY NEEDS
I WILL CONTINUE TO PLANT MY SEEDS
 
OF DISCONTENT
LET ME IN  – WIDEN YOUR TENT

Noise – One Hundred Fourteen

SO YOU WONDER WHY YOUR SON IS THE WAY
THAT HE IS FROM DAY TO DAY
 
DID HE RICHOCHET OFF OF YOUR GENES
FOLLOWING DIFFERENT ROUTINES
 
USING NO DIPLOMACY
ACCOUNTABILITY
 
IN ACTIVITIES IN WHICH HE PARTICIPATES
AND CELEBRATES
 
NOT A CHILD OF MINE
I WATCH FROM THE SIDELINE
 
WHAT DID I DO WRONG
SING A SONG
 
THAT LED HIM DOWN THIS PATH
THE AFTER MATH
 
OF WHAT I THOUGHT THAT I TAUGHT
FROM THE FIBER OF MY EVERY THOUGHT
 
ON WHAT WAS BEST
SO THAT HE WOULD BE BLESSED
 
WITH THE BEST OF EVERYTHING
ACHIEVING
 
SKILL SETS NEEDED TO FULFILL
MY WILL
 
FOR HIS SUCCESS
WITHOUT STRESS
 
BUT DID I FORGET MY OWN UPBRINGING
ACKNOWLEDGING
 
GOD’S FREE WILL AND THE CHOICE
TO USE ONE’S OWN VOICE
 
TO MAKE DECISIONS
AND ACTIONS
 
THAT DO NOT INCLUDE ME TO CLONE
THAT WHICH CAME FROM MY BELLY BONE
 
FOR SO MANY MOTHERS LIKE ME
HAVE MADE SONS THAT CANNOT SEE
 
WHAT THEY MUST DO ON THEIR OWN
THE SOWING FROM THEIR TESTOSTERONE
 
AND IF THEY DESIRE TO REACH BACK
TO THEIR MOTHER IN THE CUL-DE-SAC
 
LET IT BE TO PICK AND CHOOSE
THE VALUES
 
THAT HE NEEDS
AS HE LIVES AND PLANTS HIS SEEDS
 
FOR THE GENES DO TELL
AND WILL KILL OR EXCEL
 
THE SON WHO IS A PROTOTYPE OF OURSELF
WHO MAY NOT NEED EVERYTHING THAT IS ON THE SHELF
