One Pair Of Shoes

We will go
One day

Where green hills
Roll up
Fling green capes
Over raw rocks
Icy cold
Clean streaming Life
Swimming in smiles
Away from judgement
Competition
Only to enjoy
Music sung by crickets
Birds and rain
Air bubbles trapped
On wet pebbles
Racing over star sparkles

Far away
You and I

Little one
Freckled gamin-faced
Sad and merry eyes
Unable to believe
Unable to give up
Hope amidst chaos

A place
Where no one is ugly
No one compares
How lovely is a colour
Or a shape or face
No one is alone
I will take you
Where Love lives

Reach up
Take my hand
Remember
All the days

We

Always

Are

Together even when
Each believing
We walked
In only one pair
Of shoes
With only one pair
Of feet

Our house
Will not last forever

We

Will

Take my hand
One foot
Next step
One foot
Next step

One our steps
Will rise up
Out of road dust
Into deep skies
Past space debris
Past Time

Almighty One
Always we were
Always are

Your song
Your words
Your creation

Married

He should be your good guy he should be your bad guy
She should be your whore and your madonna
There should be no split in Love no sulky sit-in You
Should be close enough for both of you to want in

There’s no reason to be tellin’
Another person
All your fantasies
If you’re lucky you have someone
Who’s sitting next to you
You can share all these

The world tell’s us lies and makes use wrong eyes
We separate the idea of love and sex
There’s someone for your hunger and another for your needs
And damn that makes the world too complex

The one you say you love is probably wanting
The same thing you are terrified to ask for so you
Get online or go down the street and screw it all up
Permanently wear the mask for covering up

The Truth is you’re ruined now for anyone in the world
And you have the nerve to ask for someone pure to love you
Someone pure to serve you and better they deserve…You
Can’t see you will just bring them down from the blue…

There’s no reason to be tellin’
Another person
All your fantasies
If you have someone
Who’s sitting next to you
You can have all these

I Don’t Date Babies

(by MshannonM)

Well he told me he wuz 38 but his DP look’d ’bout 12,
When I ask’d why He said he’d cry cause I didn’t believe his truth!
Well we chat awhile and the kid has style and he’s really very smart,
But I could not let him clooooose enough……to break my heart.

(chorus)
I DOOOOOON’T Date babies, not in real or online!
I might have Rabies, If you ain’t sure give it time!!!!!
I try to tell the world Just who I AM,
But half the time it seems the world…
Just Don’t give a damn!

Well this young man said how hot I wuz and how I made him hurt,
Then he called me ‘gramma’….man I tell you thats the worst!
Get me some learnin’ to not b’lieve in any ‘o that sweet talk,
So I told the kid as nice as I could, “Hey baby….Take a walk!”

(chorus)
I DOOOOOON’T Date babies, not in real or online!
I might have Rabies, If you ain’t sure give it time!!!!!
I try to tell the world Just who I AM,
But half the time it seems the world…
Just Don’t give a damn!

So me and one of my homie girls were chattin’ online,
An’ she said to me, “That dude Ah Ji, he’s makin’ up love lines”
I said “Hey man is he at it now ’cause he’s tellin’ me the same”
And both of us bust out laughin’ so hard
That he called me the Devil’s name!

(chorus)
I DOOOOOON’T Date babies, not in real or online!
I might have Rabies, If you ain’t sure give it time!!!!!
I try to tell the world Just who I AM,
But half the time it seems the world…
Just Don’t give a damn!

Now sum’ these kids are really cool and they know about the game,
And they don’t play mean and they don’t play hard
(But they still play aaaaalllllll the same.)
Now that kind I don’t really mind cause I know they’re passin’ time…
So we all play mental raquet-ball for fun and we never cross the ‘LINE’

(chorus)
Noooooooooooo………

I DOOOOOON’T Date babies, not in real or online!
I might have Rabies, If you ain’t sure give it time!!!!!
I try to tell the world Just who I AM,
But half the time it seems the world…
Just Don’t give a damn!

Had To Move On

We had to move on

We had to move on

We had to go where the jobs had gone

You could not make friends

They would not last long

We had to move on

Move on

Place to place we grew

I knew more about you

You tried to understand

But I wasn’t a man

Just a stranger

Lost in a land on a planet

She never was supposed to be on

She moved on

She had to move on

The unwanted one

Keep moving on

They all like her it’s true

Secretly they all knew

She had to move on

Leave before they leave you

Leave before it’s official

You can always tell

When backs are starting to turn

You know comes the burn

I had to move on

I had to move on

I know they are relieved I am gone

I know they will never forget this alien

But I had to move on

He had to move on

He had to move on

His life was nothing

But old sad songs

One day he woke up

Unble to move

Unable to sing

Unable to ever ever ever have love

He had to move on

Now he is gone

Now he is gone

 

Each day that goes by

I am reminded

How I am apart by even those

Who claim they love me so

It used to make me mad

It used to make me cry

But there are only so many times you can die

Inside

Before you have to move on

Before you have to move on

Someday I’ll be gone

Like an old sad song

We have to move on

……..

 

We have to move on.

 

You Could Have Been Me

How did you make the Golden People love you when we were young?

I never could seem to get the hang of it and so this song,

How did you know so young how to socially belong?

While I struggled to understand joking while along?

You grew up with praise and adulations,

Beloved by your peers everywhere you were,

I was the ‘human dictionary’ when someone wanted a ‘brain’,

I was the one they said, “Don’t be like HER!”,

I could have been you,

You could have been me,

I know you worked hard to get what you have but you can’t see,

You could have been me,

I could have been you,

The you would know when I said, “I did my best”, it was true,

You found a rich man who had a conscience and was easy to catch,

Two people who loved money it was an almost perfect match,

Both of you had loved before people who were your opposite,

Both of you still cry some tears for learning from your own insight,

I know you both love people and that’s how you get along,

You think I am some loser that is why I wrote this song,

I know that you would never say this to my face,

You really don’t know me….I am from the ‘alien race’

You could have been me,

I could have been you,

You could have the world mesmerized by your IQ,

I could have been you,

You could have been me,

The world could have been all about making money….

Now you have a daughter and an incredible son,

Born with all the requisites that real success requires,

He never saw a drunken father beat up on his bride…

He’s never known what it means to barely survive,

Everyone compares his autistic sister to me,

They say how much we are alike in our negativity,

They think that we can’t hear the words they say,

We never forget any words we ever hear until this day….

She could have been him,

He could have been her,

Shifted from house to house with one dad and two mothers,

He could have been her,

She could have been him,

With a father who loved her closely from the ‘begin.’

Please don’t judge the ones who are not

‘Quite right in the head’

You may have no idea how they got that way….

Instead…….

Don’t call us ‘losers’….don’t call us names….

You have no idea what you’d be if you were the same….

Don’t look down your nose at who we are,

You escaped the walls that stuffed our souls in jars…

‘Baby You’re Not Good Enough Now’

All those nights I spent stayin’ up

To help you in the door when you couldn’t walk,

Drunk and high and covered with other women’s perfume.

Cryin’ with your mom cause you’re 30 and you won’t work,

Paying the rent and takin’ care of myself like a man,

Who was your buddy cause buddy I loved YOU.

The time you lost your teeth in a cycle wreck,

Jaws wired shut and you couldn’t talk,

And sported a scar years later for gals to view

While you played your guitar and said that you got it in a knife fight,

While I watched them throw thier underwear at your feet and flash free meat,

And the cops came and shut the party down: I loved you!

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”

I remember the day he brought her home,

Ten years younger …blue eyed long blond legged,

Gal with an story and an attitude…

That all men should fall at her feet like axed trees,

Telling me finally she wanted you and I let you go ’cause you

Said you loved her and I loved you so I walked right out that door….

There wasn’t any ‘You and me’ anymore….

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”

Now the years have gone and that girls still haunts me,

Tellin’ me I’m nuthin’ and her smile still taunts me,

Men who have come and gone cause they love me

Only because I am like a good buddy,

Kinda get used to being second, kinda get used to the play,

Til one day comes and you don’t believe it anymore…any day…

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”

She ruined me for any man that might love me,

Cause I can’t ever really believe that anyone else might ever want me,

I’m just the gal they come cryin’ too when she leaves them flat on the lovers mat,

When the tussle is over they are sad and they come to me and they ask for love

and I give what I got but honey it ain’t much…..

…..

……

I see her everywhere struttin’ in short shorts walkin’….

Down those park sidewalk she keeps man stalkin’….

Laughin; at me from billboard signs,

Catchin’ my eye in check out lines,

Branded on my brain like I was a cow is this idea:

“Baby you’re not good enough now.”

 

1982 (written for jo-jo)

When I think I KNOW you

Much to my surprise

Suddenly I notice you are wearing my disguise!

I’m sure I did not understand you heart before your word,

Once again I realize: with judgement comes ‘The Sword’,

I begin to see you

As a separate soul,

As your personality emerges as a whole,

Who am I to point at you and, useless, stand apart,

When we wear the same shoes and we know each others art.

What would I find out if your wall did crumble?

Is there victory in pure honesty….

…I stumble.

Nor priceless stone but broken glass

We can flash the night bright,

and none can tell the difference in the low light,

So I look at you and see the mask within your eyes..

And suddenly I notice YOU…wearing my disguise!

1982 (Yo-yo Riding)

I’m Yo-yo riding!

Spinning up and down,

Mental skydiving,

In the air and hit the ground,

You make me happy,

Then you make me sad,

First I have you,

Then you’re someone that I HAD,

And I think I won’t survive this, I think I can’t contrive this,

‘Cause nuthin’s getting THROUGH OOO OOOO….

I really tried to reach you, I really tried to teach you,

But I cannot be with YOU OOOO OOO,

Gentleman gypsie,

My rockin’ romeo ,

You made me typsie,

‘Cause you said you loved me so,

And now I’m rollin’

While you reel me back,

So Yo-yo riding…

Watch  out for the ATTACK!

(song written when I was 18)

1980 (Social Cancer)

Fed on neon signs and smog breeze!

Boring jobs and fast food fry grease,

Try to chase the American dream

And get, Ulcers and a bitchin’ family,

Everyone….

They need THE ANSWER…

Panoramic

Social Cancer…

Try to drink away the just guilt,

Sudden stop and then God says TILT!

Go to the office building where you live half your life!!!

Date your secret ary and go home to your wife!!!

Tranquilizers calm ragged out nerves

But they make you sleep

Your car swerves,

Run a red light…get a ticket…

Tell the cop where he can stick it!

Safely home

Jump in the BOTTLE

Alcohol you..

GET A BRAINFULL…

Try to run away from just guilt,

Sudden stop and then God says “TILT!”

And you hope that someday you can retire….

Get aplace in the country…set your bank books on fire!

Now you bite your pencils and forget how to think????

Maybe everything would look a little better with a little DRINK!

Hahahaha!

Get a little…hippie culture?

Paint a picture…of the future…

Is is bleak

And Kinda scary?

Gettin’ old is

Mercenary,

Nowdays AGE is not the villain..

Unless it is YOU IT’S KILLIN’!

(written when I was 16)

1983 (Hell Maybe What They Say Is True)

Hell maybe what they say is true

I don’t fit in and I’M NOT LIKE YOU,

Something crazy drives my soul,

Headlong, insane Rock and roll,

You don’t see me,

You’re Blind to me,

I’m something you’re afraid to be,

Hell, maybe what they say is true,

I don’t fit in,

I’m not LIKE YOU!

If others did to you, what you do to them, you’d lose your start!

Seeking your revenges for the actions in which you played a part?

Maybe you don’t realize your eyes betray the HATRED in your heart!

You speak of Trust you never knew,

You talk of things you never do,

Hell, maybe what they say is true,

I don’t fit in I’m not like you!

(an old song I wrote when I was 19)
