Sinnocently of Chicago
This groups mighty creator
From the windy city
No group is greater
Relinquishing the rights
She has to digress
After work at nights
She has to de-stress
Wants to cut her hair
And someday be a mother
Waiting for a proposal

PomPrint's in Scotland
Mending his plaid kilts
They're all torn and tattered
From wearing his stilts
Don't know what's under there
But when nature calls
You better be careful
Of your dangling belt
Sometimes he's ired
He likes little dogs
But they get so darned tired
From retrieving his logs
Walk past his window
Look through his door
and you will probably catch him
Playing Wild Boar
Dallas is the home
Of our boy ShippD
Not quite a gnome
But still pretty shifty
He knows what he wants
He knows what he likes
Instead of dating the girls
He's home playing with trikes
On his computer - 3D
He' trying to render
A new gas tank
Or a new front fender

Vision I On September 29, 2007 at night I had a vision, it started in my living room. I saw my sister with her friend looking outside the window which called my attention. All of a sudden, they ran into my parents room and I than sat down where they were, and looked outside the window too. I noticed a triangle constellation in the sky, and I called my sister and her friend over to show them the constellation but When I glanced back I noticed that the star on the right was gone. At that time, I heard a loud sound. Like something burning- it sounded like a wild furnace. At that moment a great mountain on fire appeared to launch into the sky. It illuminated the land and trees, and I was allowed to see details on the mountain it had grass and land on it and it was ablaze wild fire.Vision I3 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

Even we will be savedWe turn our eyes awayEven we will be saved1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
As blackness fades to grey
We become what they told us to fear
Slaves of our own minds
Never close never near
We climb into our holes
And make ourselves at home
Open books with so many torn out pages
Walking through fire
Thirsting for truth
In another night of sin
We take on yet another fight
Impossible to win
We are at war inside
White flags in our hands
But hatred paints them bullet black
So we turn our eyes away
On our knees to wash our faces
Once again we pray
That one day even we will be saved
Hate YouI hate the way your lips form when you smileHate You4 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
And the way you've cut your hair
I hate your damn brown eyes, and how it's a lie
And how I know this isn't fair
I hate how you wouldn't look me in the eye
While those words escaped your lips
I hate how I still miss the way
You used to press against my hips
I hate all the promises you made only to break
And all the vows you'll never keep
I hate how your presence still haunts my world
And echoes through my mind as I sleep
I hate the months after you left me
That I spent as a basket case
I hate all the useless tears I wasted
Crying over the photo of our embrace
I hate knowing you won't read this
Or show if you give damn
I hate still hearing the songs that we said were ours
And how you'll never see the things I can
I hate the loss of the bond we used to share
And why it left with all the pain
I hate how we couldn't get the chance
For you to kiss me in the rain
I hate all we endured
And my breakdown, followed by my breakthrough
I hate knowing tha
Burn My ShadowLocked away...Burn My Shadow3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is it possible for a man to go beyond his existence
Behind doors whose wooden bars hold him with in himself
In a constant need to recede further to the inner child
How can it be
Better yet, why to those who do no harm
Feeling nothing, not even the cold air hitting his face
I suppose that I never thought that that man could be me
But it is, and I am
Seeing false gods, seeing people burning
Slowly I leave this world
With more time that passes I wish I could stay
But simultaneously I wish death would come quickly and swiftly
Why and how to people have to live this way
May peace find my way though
And find me it won't
Yet I will fight for it
Just need to give myself a bath in the waters of clarity
To burn my shadows away and uncover my lonely soul
My Serendipitous LoveI survived years of physical and emotional abuse, but it was not without consequences. The incomprehensible trauma I experienced still haunts my dreams and waking thoughts. It has been, and will continue to be, a long and grueling road to overcome my fears. What I have learned and discovered on my constant journey has lessened the pain I will persistently endure.My Serendipitous Love2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
He sent a random hello from a thousand miles away and the wall around my heart began to crumble from that simple word. It was an unexpected chemistry that unlocked my impenetrable heart, a modest reconnection with that ignited the catalyst of my future. He was different, so different. I felt safe as he started rocking my world. It didn’t take long for me to fall for him, hard.
He was an old friend, long dismissed from memory, but never forgotten. An unknown attraction sparked the fires of romance with a mutual and drunken realization. Emotions drove our thoughts and actions, binding us together with the threads of t
Godly Relationships 100: Walk with JesusHere's one last tip for you: behave yourself like a Christian every day of the week, not just on Sundays. In other words, make Jesus a priority in every aspect of your life.Godly Relationships 100: Walk with Jesus1 year ago in Letters More Like This
Jesus made an extreme sacrifice for you. Are you willing to make changes in your life for Him? Can you honestly say that you're passionate about your faith and that you're really following Jesus? Hopefully so. But if you're preoccupied with other things-of if you're a strictly a one-day-a-week Christian- then you're in need of a big time spiritual makeover.
Jesus doesn't want you to be a run-of-the-mill, follow-the-crowd kind of believer. Jesus wants you to be a "new creation" through Him. And that's exactly what you should want for yourself, too.
So remember this: you're the recipient of Christ's love. Accept it enthusiastically and demonstrate your love with words and actions. Jesus deserves your heart-give it to Him today, tomorrow, and forever, Amen.
ChablonIt seems like whenever I try to go to bed early,Chablon8 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I wake up choking on the sandman’s
Fairy dust composed of,
Crushed butterfly wings,
And paradoxical statements.
I would think I ate too close to sleeping,
If I had eaten at all so I guess I’ll assume
The acrimony is simply from,
Capturing and eating all the angelfish
Floating through my ceiling
And I should have known better than to eat a delicacy.
Even without me,
This planet will continue to rotate so I will
Revolve my body around the sun until it is,
Off the bed and on the floor
So I can lie there and ponder
Why I am not more.
This ticking is going to shift rapidly,
Like the crown on this horology without meaning
And it seems I should,
Let my body become tangled in these gears
And pulled until
It is torn apart.
It appears far too easy,

But there's just one twist.
The paintbrush is a knife;
And the paper is my wrist.
I'll draw you something pretty;
It's might be a sin.
The sketch is made of blood;
And the paper's made of skin.
I'll write down a pretty poem;
And this is what I'll do.
I'll fill it full of pain;
And send it straight to you.
I'll mold you a pretty sculpture;
Make it of a heart.
I'll make it out of me;
And hope it falls apart.
I'll send you a pretty package;
But there's a trick you'll see.
I'll fill it full of pieces;
And the pieces are of me.
Godly Relationships 71: Integrity MattersWould you like a time-tested, ironclad formula for successful relationships? Here it is: guard your integrity like you guard your wallet.Godly Relationships 71: Integrity Matters1 year ago in Editorial More Like This
It has been said on many occasions and in many ways that honesty is the best policy. For Christians, it is far more important to note that honestly is God's policy. And if we are to be servants worthy of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we must be honest, forthright, and trustworthy.
Telling the truth means telling the whole truth. And that means summoning the courage to deliver bad news when necessary. And for some of us, especially those of us who are card-carrying people pleasers, telling the whole truth can be difficult indeed (especially if we're pretty sure that the truth will make somebody mad). Still, if we wish to fashion successful lives, we've got to learn to be totally truthful. Part-time truth-telling doesn't cut the mustard.
Sometimes, honesty is difficult; sometimes, honesty is painful; sometimes, honesty is inconvenient; but honesty is alway
We Are HumanHumans fear many things. For a species that has taken over the world, numbers upwards of seven billion, one would think we would have nothing to fear. We’re at the top of the food chain…right?We Are Human6 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
And yet we fear.
We’re many sided and have many layers. We’ve created many things, both terrible and great.
Fear is a funny thing. It sneaks up on you. It strains your lungs, thickens the beat of your heart. It sends chills up your spine; it makes it hard to swallow, to think. Fear can make you run. It can make you scream. Fear is a powerful force, hard to tame, hard to ignore.
It can freeze you as a knife comes down, or it can make you lightning fast.
Some fears are simple. The fear of a snake, slithering through the weeds. The fear of a spider, its eight legs treading lightly up your leg. The fear of the dark, pressing all around and hiding that which lurks in its shadows.
There are many fears, fear of life, of death, of l

Mm-hm-mm-mm And I can fly
I'll touch every star in the sky
I feel lighthearted when I think of us
Our future we will have together
A smile spreads across my face
Like peanut butter spread on a soft bread
I hope our melodies coerce
My heart will warm when I see you
My eyes will dazzle at the sight of your kindness
My feet will never tire running to you
All that time never even knowing
Just how blind I've been
Now I'm here blinking in the starlight
Blush marks appear when you approach me
Because I feel the warmth of your love
As if your love took form
Maybe that's the person- love
True love reassuring me that you're real
That you're out there
That someday soon
You will return with a song of love
And at last I see the light
And it's like the sky is new
~Accept my love and I'll return your love ten-times-fold!

Godly Relationships 72: ConcernsThe Bible promises this: tough times are temporary but God's love is not-God's love endures forever. So what does that mean to you? Just this: From time to time, everybody faces disappointments and broken relationships-so will you. And when tough times arrive God always stand ready to protect you and to heal you. Your task is straightforward: you must share your burdens with Him.Godly Relationships 72: Concerns1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This
As Corrie ten Boom observed, "Any concern that is too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden." Those are comforting words, especially during difficult days.
Whatever the size of your challenges, God is big enough to handle them. Ask for His help today, with faith and with fervor. Instead of turning things over in your mind, turn them over to God in prayer. Instead of worrying about your next decision, ask God to lead the way. Cast your burdens upon the One who cannot be shaken, and rest assured that He always hears your prayers.
One Day I Saw My LoverOne Day I Saw My LoverOne Day I Saw My Lover3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
J. E. Scar
One day I saw my lover,
Alone inside my room
To see her lay atop my covers
Melted all my gloom
I saw your smile, and soft brown eyes
The way they called me near
I felt deep down my spirit fly
And my love for her came clear
I wanted then to kiss my rose
And love her oh so much
Remind her it was she I chose
And feel her soft, warm touch
Her skin it glowed so soft and grand
Beneath the old light fixture
But when I reached to touch her hand
I realized; it was just a picture

Faith . . . . .Faith . . . . .3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
What does the word "Faith" mean to us?
In general, it means belief, that what you believe to be true is true.
But does it really mean that it just means believing?
Or is there more to it than we thought . . . . . .
Here is what I think:
Faith is composed of 3 characteristics
The first one is belief. You believe that whatever you claim to be true is true.
The second one is trust. Do you trust that what you believe to be true IS to be true? And will you not lie or present false evidence of the proof of your belief? Do you believe that what you believe in can bring you answers to your life and that it is the way, the truth, and the light?
From that trust comes desire. Do you trust your belief enough to have the desire to do what it asks of you or share this truth with others?
The third and final one is obedience. When you've accepted this belief, trust in it, and desire to do something with that belief, would you hav

When I was afraid
Never to lose my faith
But now it's past midnight
And the demons in my head are wide awake

And I can help but ask myself
What if the light at the end of the tunnel
Is a in fact a train?
Godly Relationships 46: The FutureHow bright is your future? If you're a faithful believer, God's plans for you are so bright that you'd better pack sunscreen. But here's an important question: How bright do you believe your future to be? Are you expecting a terrific tomorrow, or are you dreading a terrible one? The answer you give will have a powerful impact on the way tomorrow turns out.Godly Relationships 46: The Future2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
Do you trust in the ultimate goodness of God's plan for your life? Will you face tomorrow's challenges with optimism and hope? You should. After all, God created you for a very important reason: His reason. And you still have important work to do: His work.
Today, as you live in the present and look to the future, remember that God has an amazing plan for you. Act and believe accordingly.

All locked up in fear and distrust
Like a young flower
With petals closed
Way to scared to open up to the world
But look at you
You're young and strong
Why so scared now little one
This is your time
The time of your life
Don't you think
You should use it wise?
Oh how I hate to look at you
Covered eyes and head down low
Why don't you smile at what they say?
Darling fuck what they think
Just laugh it all away
So look at you
All reckless and young
It's time to show them
You're bright and strong
Step out of the shadow and into the light
You heard me now
Time to put up a fight
