The depths of hell

I seek salvation in the depths of hell,
With a burning none can quell,
I dream while I am awake,
Yearning for something I can take,
I feel the burning flames swallow my soul,
I feel them take it whole,
I feel them consume everything I hope to be,
Everything I dare to see.

I hear screaming souls around me,
I hear a deep sorrow from within me,
It tears me apart and builds me again,
Just so that I may again feel that pain,
Each tear is more bitter than the last,
The present more painful than the past,
Each day I lose more,
Each day I know I have nowhere to go.

I feel and see pain all around,
I see darkness abound,
Yet in all this I see nothing,
In everything,
And everything,
In nothing,
I seek salvation in the depths of hell,
With a burning none can quell

Dear Mama (I thank you)

I was taught to live this life by an angel,
And this angel is you,
You taught me the right path to walk,
Even when I wanted to stray,
You gave me the courage to go on,
Even when all seemed lost,
You made the man that I am today,
And for that I thank you.

I remember the days we had nothing,
But in that nothing, we still had much,
We had a home of love,
A home with hope,
Hearts filled with desire,
And spirits with the promise of tomorrow,
You made the man that I am today,
And for that I thank you.

I look at everything that I have,
And I owe it all to you,
I look at everything that I am,
And I owe it all to you,
I see the future of what I will be,
The promise that lies ahead,
You made the man that I will be,
And for that, I thank you.

Sunshine

I stood in the room alone,
Though in a crowd, I still felt alone,
They talked, they giggled, they laughed,
As they walked none stopped, they passed,
Glasses of wine on their lips,
Hands of promise draped on their hips,
I was there yet in my own world,
There, not there, yet bold.

Then she walked in gracefully,
She captured me completely,
I stared,
Never cared,
She glided rather than walked,
She sang, rather than talked,
I looked up from my wine,
And saw my sunshine.

She was the light of the room,
The bride to my groom,
I watched as the room stood still,
Each man gazed at her outside their will,
She smiled so beautifully.
And took it all in, so gracefully,
I knew for the rest of our lives we would dine,
Me and my sunshine.

I promise

The day the earth stands still,
And when I lose my will,
The day the rain stops falling from the sky,
And the day we stop asking why,
The day we lose hope,
And the day we can no longer cope,
Is the day I will stop loving you,
The day I will no longer be true.

This is my promise to you,
The promise that keeps everything I do,
When I look into your eyes,
I know that I have won life’s prize,
I know that the world is right,
That there is no longer reason to fight,
I will love you in all I do,
That is my promise to you

Jump

The birds the stay in the comfort of their nests,
Never learn to fly,
Only those with the courage to jump,
Will learn to fly.

If it were me

I watch you every day as you walk by,
Always with a tear in your eye,
I saw you cry again today,
As you cry every other day,
One day I will whisper to you,
That your tears can be through,
That someone can guard your heart,
Much better than that.

If it were me you were coming to,
I would make every day about you,
I would bring joy to your life,
And make you feel alive,
Though tears may stream down your face,
Joy will take sadness' place,
I would buy you a rose so red,
And make you feel alive as we lay in bed.

If it were me who had your heart,
You would be happy from the start,
I would be your man and you my lady,
Each day would be happy,
I would hold your hand and never want to let go,
I would always wish for more,
I would have found my gem,
My diamond among them.

But it's not me you run to,
It's not me you come home to,
It's him to go to every day,
And with him you cry every day,
One day I will take your heart as mine,
One day it will all me mine,
One day it will be…

I don't know

I am a man with many questions,
Borne from my many musings,
I have sat and wondered what it all means,
For fairness in life exists only in dreams,
So, if God who is so good puts us here,
Why does he let evil live near,
Why does evil often win,
And good has victory so thin.

They that cheat are crowned in glory,
They that follow rules are often sorry,
The good die young sadly
Yet the evil live long gladly,
So why should we do good at all,
When we will always fall,
From our birth unto death,
We are stuck on this earth.

If it's for a glory in heaven,
Then the lot is uneven,
Why should we even be here in the first place,
If heaven is our place,
Why not be birthed there,
And never suffer here,
We would stay far from temptation,
And be in a better situation.

I wonder about the purpose of many things
About the pain life brings Is it worth anything,
Or perhaps it's worth everything
I wish I could sit down with God,
And ask him questions meant for The Lord,
Perhaps I may…
