Noise #148

                                                                   

THE OLDER ONE GETS
COMES THE REGRETS
 
EVEN WHEN REACHING BACK
AS TO WHERE YOU SAT
 
WHEN YOU WERE IN KINDERGARTEN
LISTEN
 
TO THE WHEELS OF THE MIND TURN
WHEN WE WOULD LEARN
 
HOW TO ACT IN SCHOOL
WHAT WAS THE RULE
 
THAT WOULD BE IN PLAY
AS WE CAME IN THE DOOR FROM DAY TO DAY
 
DO I EVEN WANT TO REMEMBER
CONJURE
 
UP WHAT HAPPEN TO ME
DO I WANT TO SEE
 
ANY OF IT AGAIN
ESPECIALLY IF I DID NOT WIN
 
THE FAVOR OF MY PEERS
GETTING OVER ALL OF THE FEARS
 
THE TEACHER WAS ANOTHER STORY
AS SHE MADE A DISCOVERY
 
OF WHOM SHE FELT HAD THE GOODS
TO BE THE BEST FROM THE NEIGHBORHOODS
 
I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU SAY
THAT DECISION MADE A BREAK AWAY
 
FROM THE OTHERS FROM EARLY ON
UPON
 
WHICH DECISIONS FOR THE FUTURE WERE MADE
AND WEIGHED
 
ON THE SCALE FOR SUCCESS
ONE HAD TO IMPRESS
 
I LEARNED HOWEVER NOT TO LET THAT DECISION
BE THE DECLARATION
 
OF WHAT I WAS WORTH
ON THIS EARTH
 
AND NOW IN MY OLD AGE
CONTROL THE RAGE
 
THAT LABELLED
AND SCHEDULLED
 
WHAT I WOULD BE
TO MEET SOMEONE ELSE’S EXPECTANCY
 
TO PERSEVERATE ON IT
WILL TRANSMIT
 
ME BACK TO THE PAST
GET OVER IT DON’T LET IT LAST
 
TODAY IS THE MOMENT
WITHIN THE INCREMENT
 
OF TIME
OH MY GOD LET ME CONTINUE TO CLIMB
 
FOR IF I FOCUS ON WHAT HAS BEEN
I WILL NOT WIN
 
AND WIN I MUST
BEFORE I RETURN TO DUST

WHERE DO OUR BIASES COME FROM
DAD OR MOM
 
NO MATTER WHICH ONE
THEY AWAKEN
 
CELLS INHERITED
IMPACTED
 
WITHIN
OUR SKIN
 
NOT LYING ON TOP
MAYBE AT THE DOORSTOP
 
THEY ARE THERE
BE AWARE
 
EVERYONE HAS THEM
SOME CAUSE MAYHEM
 
WITHIN OUR MINDS
THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT KINDS
 
IT IS UP TO YOU
TO REVIEW
 
ONE AND ALL
AND CALL
  
THOSE OUT
THAT WANT TO RUN ABOUT
 
UNCHECKED
SUSPECT
 
CAST IT OUT OF YOUR LIFE
CUT IT WITH A KNIFE
 
GIVE EVERYONE AROUND YOU A CHANCE
NO MATTER WHAT THEIR CIRCUMSTANCE

Noise #146

 

  
 IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU CANNOT DO
YOU MAY ACCRUE
 
AN ATTITUDE OF DOUBT
ASK YOUR SELF WHAT THIS IS ABOUT
 
FOR WHAT EVER YOU FEEL AND SAY
CREATES YOUR WAY
 
TO BE EITHER POOR OR INFERIOR
AND NEVER A HIGH ACHIEVER
 
REMEMBER DOUBTING THOMAS BACK IN THE DAY
HE SAID THAT JESUS WAS NOT ALIVE – NO WAY
 
NOT UNTIL HE PUT HIS HANDS INTO JESUS’ SIDE
DID HE DECIDE
 
GET UP AND KNOW YOURSELF
 GET OFF OF THE SHELF
 
BEGIN TO LIVE
INSTEAD OF BEING INACTIVE
 
DOUBTING CAN LEAVE YOU BEHIND
AND UNABLE TO FIND
  
THE DESTINY THAT IS YOURS
SHOULD BE IN YOUR PORES
 
AND COME OUT EACH DAY
AND BREAK AWAY
 
FROM LONELINESS
OR DARKNESS
 
THAT MISTRUST BRINGS
TO STOP AWAKENINGS
 
WHEN DAY DAWNS
DO FLIPS AND MARATHONS
 
WITH A SPRING IN YOUR STEP
WITH LOTS OF PEP
 
LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT IS YOUR LAST
BE STEADFAST

Noise #145

 

FACED WITH ADVERSITY
OR COMPLACENCY
 
EACH PRESENTS CHALLENGES
AND HAVE ACCOMPLICES
 
THAT LEAVES ONE VULNERABLE
AND UNABLE
 
TO KNOW WHICH WAY TO GO
SO
 
IT IS UP TO US TO REACH
TO TEACH
 
OURSELVES TO FIND A WAY
NOT ONLY TO SAVE THE DAY
 
BUT NOT TO LOSE
OR EXCUSE
 
HARD TIMES THAT COME
TO NUMB
 
US FROM ACHIEVING OUR GOALS
BY DIGGING HOLES
 
LET’S NOT GET TRAPPED
OR ZAPPED
 
LOOK AROUND
MAKE A SOUND
 
TO WAKE UP YOUR
SENSES TO LURE
 
THEM INTO ACTION
WITHOUT DIVERSION
 
FIND A WAY YOU MUST
AND TRUST
 
THAT YOU CAN DO IT
DO NOT QUIT
 
UNTIL YOU HAVE FOUND
SOME THING TO WRAP AROUND
 
ANY DOUBTS
TO ACHIEVE ROUTES
 
THAT GET YOU OUT
TO THE OTHER SIDE TO WALK ABOUT

Noise #144

 

PATHWAYS ARE MADE EVERYDAY
THROUGH ROADS THAT CAN REPLAY
 
FOOTSTEPS OF THOSE THAT CAME THROUGH
TO PURSUE
 
ONE DREAM OR ANOTHER
OF EITHER A SISTER OR A BROTHER
 
WERE THERE OBSTACLES ON THE WAY
DOES IT MATTER WHAT TIME OF DAY
 
AND IF NOT
WHAT WAS TAUGHT
 
LIFE IS A BOWL OF CHEERIES
NO ADVERSARIES
 
IS THAT A ONE TIME THING
CURTAILING
 
THE REALITIES
AND AGONIES
 
TO BE FOUND ON MANY A PATHWAY
WAS THIS JUST AN UNUSUAL DAY
 
EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO THIS
FOR A TIME TO REMINISCE
 
WHEN LIFE HAS BEEN KIND
DID NOT LEAVE YOU BEHIND
 
TO HAVE EXPEREINCES THAT COUNT
THAT YOU LEARN SOMEHOW TO SURMOUNT
 
THIS IS WHERE A REAL PATHWAY LEADS
AND SUCCEEDS
  
IN GIVING YOU WHAT YOU NEED
TO SEED
 
BEST CHOICES
LISTEN TO THE VOICES
 
OF OTHERS WHO WALKED THE PATH
WHAT WAS THEIR AFTERMATH
 
NO OBSTACLES MIGHT SOUND GOOD
BUT DOES THIS LEAD TO ADULTHOOD

Noise #143

 

 
THE MIND IS ALWAYS SEEKING TO FIND
A SIGN
 
TO DIRECT IT
TO THINGS THAT BENEFIT
 
AND ASSIST IN THE GROWTH
OF BOTH
 
BODY AND SOUL
TO CONTROL
 
WHERE IT SPENDS ITS TIME
DAY TO DAY AND DURING ITS PRIME
 
FOR ONCE IS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY
TO SELECT EXTRAORDINARY
 
OR COMMONPLACE
AND AT WHAT PACE
 
TO MOVE WITHIN
TO BEGIN
 
LIFE’S JOURNEY
ELABORATELY
 
OR AT GROUND ZERO
TO GROW
 
FROM THE BOTTOM UP
AND DEVELOP
 
A FEEL FOR BOTH THE BEST
AMONG THE REST
 
OR TAKE A LOOK AT THE REST
WHILE CLIMBING TO THE BEST
 
DON’T BOTH DESERVE TO BE EXAMINED
AND QUESTIONED
 
ALONG THE WAY
WHY NOT GIVE EACH ITS SAY

  THE MISERY AND SUFFERING WITH US NOW
DOES ANYONE CARE ANYHOW
 
ECONOMICS GOOD FOR SOME AND NOT FOR OTHERS
THOSE WITHOUT COME IN MANY COLORS
 
HOW TO GET OVER DAY TO DAY
CHILDREN LOOK FOR SOMEONE TO SHOW THE WAY
 
IN A COUNTRY AS RICH AS OURS
SO MANY LIVES IN SCARS
 
FOOD PANTRIES DON’T HAVE ENOUGH
STUFF
 
TO FEED EVERYONE THAT COMES
LOOKING FOR OTHER FOLKS CRUMBS
 
THOSE THAT HAVE WANT TO WHOLE ON
TO PREVENT EVERYTHING FROM BEING GONE
 
PAST EXPERIENCES HAVE TAUGHT THEM WELL
THEY ALREADY HAVE FELL
 
MANY TIMES ON THEIR WAY TO THE TOP
THEY ARE NOT READY TO FLIP-FLOP
 
THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE SAID ABOUT BEING WITHOUT
YOU KNOW NEXT TIME TO TAKE A DIFFERENT ROUTE
 
SUFFERING WILL DO THAT TO YOU
IF YOU UNDERVALUE
 
WHAT YOU HAVE, WHEN YOU HAVE IT
LET YOUR EXPERIENCE BE A BENEFIT
 
FOR THE REST OF YOUR DAYS
LEARN TO CHANGE YOUR WAYS

SO EASY TO SIT BACK AND WAIT
DON’T WANT TO ACTIVATE
 
WHAT IF THIS HAPPENS AND THAT
AND WE HAVE TO GO INTO COMBAT
 
LIFE IS A CHANCE
TO EXPLORE AND ADVANCE
 
FROM THE FIRST CRY AT BIRTH
UNTIL THE DIRT IS THROWN AT DEATH
 
DAYS FLOW OVER AND OVER
SISTER AND BROTHER
 
MAKE HAY WHILE THE SUN SHINES
YOU DON’T HAVE TO MAKE HEADLINES
 
YOU JUST HAVE TO BREATHE IN THE AIR
EACH DAY DECLARE
 
THAT I AM HERE
WITHOUT FEAR
 
I WILL STEP INTO MY LIFE
AND NOT WORRY ABOUT STRIFE
 
THAT WILL COME AS DUE
FROM THAT, GOD WILL RESCUE
 
BUT IF I DO NOT TAKE THE CHANCE
NO MATTER WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE
 
I WILL STAY IN A FETAL STAGE
AND NOT ENGAGE
 
INTO WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN
FOR AFFIRMATION
 
NOT TO UNLOOSE THE SHIP
IS TO SKIP
 
WHAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME
TO LOOK AROUND AND SEE
 
WHERE I FIT IN THE SCHEME
I MUST MOVE THE BOAT UPSTREAM
 
HAVE NO FEAR
INSTEAD COMMANDEER
 
THE SHIP THAT IS GIVEN TO YOU
USE, BEFORE YOUR LIFE IS THROUGH

Noise # 140

PITY THOSE THAT WALK IN PREJUDICE
WITH IMPETUS
 
IN ALL THAT THEY DO
TO DEVALUE
 
ANOTHER
AS A MINOR
 
STILL TODAY
WITH SO MUCH HISTORY IN THE WAY
 
DEFENDING THEIR ACT
TO KEEP RACIAL INEQUALITY IN TACT
 
SOME NEIGHBORS ARE NOT LOVED
BUT SHOVED
 
OUT OF SIGHT AND MIND
ASSIGNED
 
TO SECOND CLASS CITIZENSHIP
WHAT A HARDSHIP
 
BUT THOSE THAT ARE BEST
MOVE UP FROM THE REST
 
ENABLING THEM
TO STEM
 
PREJUDICE TRAPPINGS
AND SEEDINGS
 
FROM TOUCHING
AND ISOLATING
 
FOR THOSE THAT BELIEVE THAT
SEGREGATION IS AUTOMATIC
 
THE CHILDREN OF THE FUTURE SAY
NO WAY
 
WE WILL ROMP AND PLAY
AND BREAK AWAY
 
TO LOOK AT ALL OF GOD’S PEOPLE
AS ESSENTIAL
 
TO HIS MASTER PLAN
FOR EVERY CHILD, WOMAN AND MAN

IT’S A GOOD THING TO PLAN
IF YOU CAN
 
AND DECIDE ON WHAT IS BEST
BEFORE THE QUEST
 
BUT DON’T WASTE TIME AND BE LONG
TRYING NOT TO BE WRONG
 
FOR WHO IS TO SAY WHAT IS RIGHT IN YOUR CASE
ONLY YOU CAN EMBRACE
 
THE ESSENCE OF YOU
OTHERS DON’T HAVE A CLUE
 
WORRY THOUGH
IF YOUR TEMPO
 
IS TOO SLOW
YOU MAY BLOW
 
VALUABLE AIR AND SPACE
WHAT A WASTE
 
TIME WAITS  FOR NO ONE
AND CAN BE AN AFFLICTION
 
TO CREATING A WORTH WHILE THING
THAT WILL RING
 
FORTH FROM YEAR TO YEAR
AND BE HEARD BY  MANY AN EAR
 
FOR IT IS ACTION NOT THOUGHT
THAT ALLOWS THINGS TO BE BOUGHT
 
REFLECTION HAS ITS PLACE
DON’T LET  IT TAKE UP THE WHOLE RACE
