It has come to pass as a result of this predicament
I speak, as my lips are rebels
Those fears, goals, concerns and dreams
Their presence you demand with no sign of empathy
They are off the table
So go on, make yourself elusive
That upgrade you always wanted to have
Whether its a king, queen, bishop or a pawn
No one ever escaped the tyranny you draw
So sleep what will it be?
A Truce! it’s just you and me.
Surely you will have something to say
You know I can just counter this and…
Checking pitch, tone and harmony of the deeds
Tune the strings of life to balance your world
Arrange your ways to match the notes
Of all the chords that are right for your soul
When you are unable to find the right key to self
And it’s difficult to arrange the scale of your goals
Just close your eyes and let your fingers flow
You will catch the right melody to play your role
Strumming on the tune of righteous dreams
Transpose your thoughts to improvise at will
The virtuoso of inner self will come out one day
As they say for the top you first climb the hill
Play the symphony you are intended to play
Use the plectrum of love for it can do no wrong
Use the power chords of care if it’s necessary
Let the world “Rock On” in awe of your song
Chord Three or more notes sounded simultaneously.
Power Chord A power chord is a chord that consists of the root note and the note a fifth above. Power chords are commonly played on amplified guitars, especially on electric guitar with distortion.
Transpose To change the key of a piece of music by a specific interval.
Plectrum A plectrum or pick is a small flat tool mostly made of plastic used to pluck or strum a guitar.
Improvise It basically just means that you make something original up on the spot. Most guitar solos in rock songs for example are improvised because they don’t follow a particular structure it’s just playing your own thing really.
Virtuoso A person highly skilled in music or another artistic pursuit.
Sometimes yes it’s hard to carry hope
For it’s not easy to steady the ship
The waves of life are a F5 storm
And the anchor of faith is lost somewhere
So I try to set the course in line
Turning the truth
Feeding it all day so it sets the sails straight
And the course of life is back to normal
But then one day someone asked me
Tell me what to do as I am in great winds
The waters are getting deep and fear is creeping in
And I so wanted to help
But I ran
I ran as far as my legs could carry me
For my own anchors were no more than a lie
And then I remembered that
I wish often to change the world
But how can I be of any help
If I am not even true to myself
So I closed my eyes and told my heart
No more illusions no more lies
I will keep my ship away from the rocks
Because from now on
I am the one who knocks
This time instead of sharing something that I wrote I would like to share a piece on Love from the great Bob Marley, it’s a pity that our generation remembers Bob just as a famous weed smoker what they don’t know is that he wrote so many songs on love and peace and said such good things about love and being human, So here is something that I would like to share with you all..
“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. (more…)
I have my thoughts
And my fantasies
I have my dreams
I know my realities
I start each day with a hope in my heart
To make it the best day right from the start
I wait for miracles
And I glee at surprises
For they make my dawns glow
And brighten my sunrises
And then there are moments
When nothing seems good
And I wish to go back in time
If I could
But in those moments I gather my thoughts
And I put them in a belief box
Then I shake that box with a prayer or two
And I wait and wait for something new
Suddenly the box opens
And I peek inside
Then the smile on my face just cannot hide
When I read with joy for what it says
No time machine for you
You are here to stay
For something Good
Is on its way
Sometimes I wonder what you think the moment when you look at the stars
Sometimes I smile just thinking your laugh coming from a thought of an old memory
Sometimes I look at the rainbow and wish you watching it on the other side
Sometimes I imagine the wind I feel on my face passing by your house
Sometimes I feel if it is all just a dream what I feel sometimes
Sometimes I am afraid because I feel nothing
What if you don’t look at the stars because you don’t go out at night?
What if the memories don’t bring a smile and you never think of them
What if you don’t fill colors in your eyes because you don’t like the rain?
What if you keep your windows shut all day afraid of storms
What if these dreams are just illusions created by a wonderful trick?
Sometimes I just sit under the stars at dusk after the rain feeling the wind on my face
And I see the rainbow and say
What if you laughed?
