Rhyme without Reason
Have you ever listened to something that had no Rhyme or no Reason, but because it was so interesting you just had to keep listening? I don’t know about you but Rhyme without Reason has no place in time. In addition, you have to have a good frame of mind, just to listen to such non-sense or at least this is my two cents.
Just listen to the rhythm of the words that I have coming during this state of my mind. Some people think that it is easy to do, to get your thoughts across with words that are often so sublime.
I can’t speak for others about what they know are to be true. It would be dishonest of me to try and speak their version of the truth. Watch your words. Those words become your actions. You may have heard this before, which leaves it to be a fact and not just my opinion. Keep everything that is being told to you at the forefront of your mind…just in case you need to go back and compare the Reason to that Rhyme.
I can only sit and listen to the Rhyme and the Reason that comes from hearing your version of the truth, which makes it really hard for me to keep listening to you! Do any of the words that I have spoken bring anyone particular to your mind? If it does, my sister/my brother, please don’t be blind. I have imparted some knowledge on you that should have opened your eyes. You know specifically to whom I speak of…those people who allow lies to flow like a river out of their mouths like a faulty image that is scanned through time.
Yes, Rhyme without Reason is nothing more than a lie. It is an untruth. It is a fabrication of the reality in which we all live. But, we listen. We listen attentively to the Rhyme and forget to bother trying to get the Reason. It’s okay. There is Rhyme and Reason to everything that people say; just listen attentively so that when it is over you are able to go back and push play.
Today, I finally came to a crossroads in my life. I am leaving one opportunity to pursue another, health and family. As I transition, I decided to put my feelings into writing. I hope that the people that I have met in my life will have wonderfully tattooed impressions of me on their minds, as I do them!
A Buzzards Dream
There it sits, waits, and wonders until the very thing that people thrive, life, is gone. When that happens, its dreams become reality. It can now feast on the remains of the very thing that once had lived. Although, as grim as it may seem, a buzzard’s dream is as necessary to our existence as it is to the life and death that bonds us in reality.
I know sometimes I am not inspired to write…especially when it comes to my poetry. Usually, I can look, hear, smell or even taste something that will inspire me to write about it…lately, nothing!
What do you do to get yourself inspired to write again?
I talk but the words don’t come out of my mouth. My voice goes unheard.
I whisper so I won’t be too loud but no one can hear me. Once again my voice goes unheard.
I speak to you all but all you can see are my lips moving. You don’t understand me. Yet again my voice goes unheard.
I scream. This time I scream so loud that the Earth begins to shake. I wave my hands because I need you to hear me. You all still don’t hear my screams. The Earth just continues to move.
Don’t you understand that I have a voice and I need to be heard!
PRAY FOR THE HATERS
I aint havin it. Oh no, Not at all. Im not one to be disrepected by anyone.
Dont underestimate my gifts and talents….dont be mad at me because you can’t balance…your envy, pain, and jealousy….it aint my fault that you can’t be me!! LOL.
The seven deadly sins…one is jealousy…
YALL, please pray for the HATERS…unfortunately, they DON’T know no BETTER!!- LOL.
