IF I WERE A DEER

If I were a deer
Iíd be so sleek and so fast
Iíd search the world over
For life ever last

If I were a deer
Iíd travel the unknown path
Without being in fear
Of Satanís temptation or wrath

If I were a deer
Iíd bound through valleys of green
In places in heaven
No one else has ever seen

If I were a deer
With sure footed deer feet
Iíd feast on fresh manna
So tender and sweet

If I were a deer
Iíd climb mountains so high
That the tips of my antlers
Would touch the blue sky

If I were a deer
Panting with thirst from the chase
Iíd drink form a cool stream
That reflected Godís true face

But Iím not a deer
Godís magnificent creation
Iím just a humble sinner
In need of Christís salvation

Ps.41(42):2(1)

Temptation

When there seemed all the space in the world
Of a place unbound in life's orbit
This was, after all, a rule of thumb
And your touch became unthinkable.
 
To live in a time that has run out,
No room to stretch one's limitations,
What does it all mean to be standing
So adrift on the edge and not know.
 
To fathom the next exhalation
As being one's last of temptation,
It no longer matters nor should it
This close to a lost art abandoned.
 
And as the last air that I swallow
Buys me scant little time to indulge,
I won't try to sully this moment
'Twas my fortune to know life at all.

Pockets

I never thought this day would come,
Where I opened my eyes,
Saw my body and felt love.

I was in a very dark place,
I couldn't look at my body,
And not feel hate,
I was drowning.

I was drowning because I wasn't good enough,
In my lifetime I'd never given my body love,
I poked and prodded,
But alas,
I still wasn't ever good enough.

My body was my home, My soul.
I let society eat me alive,
Based on a scale number,
Or my fucking dress size.
I was empty when I was most alive.

I let myself fall into hell,
When all I had to do was look,
And fall under my body's spell.
Alas,
I was finally in love.

Fate That Is Set In Stone

The path is worn down and faded,
But I know I will be a step closer to
All of my happiness. No more jaded

Or dark secrets. There will be blue
Skies and bright rainbows because
Everything I could ever want is you.

The higher purpose in life is to pause
And take it all in. Our smiles and
Make our world a better place. Flaws

Going down the shore. Having a hand
To hold and a voice to hear through it
All. Someone to help you understand

The pain and suffering. When you fit
And feel like you finally found your
Place right here. You no longer hit

Rock bottom. You know every door,
Open and closed is finally making
Sense. The toxic energy you pour

Out. Every step that we are taking
Gets us closer to never breaking.

SOAP

One day Iíll be the Sum Of All Parts in me,
The good, the bad and all that Iíve planned,
Iíll be at the cusp of what Iíve foreseen,
Not a dream but a reality close at hand.
One day the objectives and breakthroughs,
Will come together just like I designed,
I wonít have a million but Iíll be rich,
With joy, compassion and all that is kind.
Iíll handle unexpected happenstances,
With cool, calm and strategic reserve,
Putting good vibes out into the world,
And in return getting the love I deserve.
One day all the goals Iíve drawn and written,
Will come to fruition for what Iíve yearned,
Gaining wisdom through life experiences,
Fully comprehending everything Iíve learned.
And though I know not everything is perfect,
I will be in a better state of mind and degree,
Because Iím confident that one day in the future,
Iíll be the Sum Of All Parts, the best of me.

LIFE' KISS !

With her everything is always right
even without wings I flight
She porch me in her coarse arms
my head-on her chest so warm
She whispers words of comfort
till i forget my worries asleep
while she bent and kiss my head;
a kiss as light as the touch of a feather
and as quite as a drop of poison.
When she rains am sure to wet
when she rays am sure to melt
but then she is the umbrella
-for the both weather.
So funny! Life with two kisses.
