Do Not Fear the Bells

Do Not Fear the Bells

The Power of Words

It's only words and that is all,
None could cause someone's downfall.
So allow me to give you a short lesson
First are words that are full of aggression.

The End

A time when light fades,
All good things
Now coming to an end.
Sight begins to dim,
Sunset...

Feeling ceases to exist
Only stillness over all.
Trading consciousness,
For silence,
Recompense...

Knowledge

Understanding is a term we use to hide our fears,
It is a pillow we fall upon when the truth becomes too much.
Some see it as the ultimate knowledge of our world
But they don’t imagine anything beyond the horizon.
We find that if we understand som...

You Hear Me, Don’t You?

Let me go.
Release my mind.
Freedom from your cold grip.

Escape has never been an option.
It is an impossible struggle
To sit in your dark shadow pleading.

Point of View

Beauty that we seek in others truest brings us peace,
Allows the good in heart and mind greatly to increase.
Enlightening the soul which helps to keep one whole,
And puts our kinder spirit fully in control.

Change or Lose

Problems in life sometimes even we don’t understand,
We react to things certain that of our mind we have command.
When inside you break and you don't even know why,
It's then that we resort to telling ourself a lie.

I Believe in You

Life hit you hard today
So unfair in every way.
You deserve better than this
Why is it all hit and miss.
When the shadows finally call
I know that you will not fall.
You will never know just why
Until it all then makes you cry.

Who Will You Be?

I just noticed the circle I'm caught within
There's nothing good and no way to win.
Beating all the odds was once a game I played
The only thing it taught me was how to keep the truth delayed.

Returning

The light in your eyes
The total surprise
The spirit with you
In all that you do
The service you give
Helps others to live
Bring righteousness back
If doubt does attack
The love that you show
He loves us all so
Be still and serve love
Give their h...

New Love

You brighten my day
And fill my heart full of love.
Make the pain go away
Give my joy a shove.
You are my whole world
Make living worth while.
Cause senses to be twirled
Make me act infantile.
So you are my all
My heart’s one true song.
All I have...

Awakening

Inside of you is a heart of gold
You just occasionally lose your way.
Just fight your way back be strong and bold
New opportunity arises each day.

Right or Wrong

Is the choice you make right now really for the best
Or will it turn into something you eventually detest.
Honestly it's not whether it's for the good or bad
It will tear apart the reality you once thought you had.
There is no way to know what is ...

Consequences

My spirit lives in anger
Forgiveness will set it free,
But how to make you notice
The things you cannot see.

In part I want to go back
To how things used to be,
I know that it can't happen
It's clear you must go free.

Broken

My instincts tell me something's wrong
The source though is not clear.
Maybe I'm just paranoid
And it's just some past fear.

I do not declare to know for sure
What troubles me so much.
So by my gut I start the search
To get the truth in touch.

It’s Only a Moment

In your hour of deepest pain,
Find your solace in Christ again.
For though your loss feels far too much,
Reach out to Him for a guiding touch.
The end is not as final as this,
It's only her presence and love we miss.
The tears will fall and grief ...

The Act

Nights are the worst
When thoughts intrude.
The things I avoided
Destroying my mood.
I'd rather distract
Think on other things.
Who's missing noticed
And sadness it brings.
The moment I stop
Dark thoughts awake.
My together composure
No longer I f...

Full Circle

What makes someone kill to save another's soul?
Without first even questioning if that person was ever whole.
Could you sacrifice just one innocent life for many?
Even if that life was to you as valuable as any.
Why do some believe that a stranger...

Together a Future

I believe in all of you.
In everything that you do.
Through every joy and violent storm,
Love will help the world conform.
The strength within your heart is true,
It gives you faith to see you through.

Honesty

With open heart and enlightened mind
A truth in yourself is what you find.
Without a compass to guide your way
Only the purest can light the day.

Change

I see a world so changed,
Emotions all seem numb.
I cannot help but wonder
At what we have become.

With violence and death seen daily,
Not only on our tv.
It breaks my heart and spirit
At what humanity can be.

Precious

One world
Billions of lives,
Yet some of us
See each as a prize.

There can be
Only one of you,
Natural talents
In all you do.

Fading Light

Stars light the sky above
The lasting memory of your love,
Never can you return to me
Lost out in eternity.

Fading from my mind too fast
Your smile, voice and even laugh,
My life's light is much dimmer now
Without your love to show me how.

Journey to Adventure

Life itself is a ridicule in motion,
Times of obstruction
Paths mock the traveler.
Combined obstacles challenge
A strong sense of accomplishment.
Right or wrong trails taken
All purposes teaching lessons,
Growth and light build personality.

What's in a Life?

A child can see only goodness in all
Life is a mystery with pieces to solve.
But as the years pass it's time to rebel
To lie and confound, to bend and compel.
Adults do not see the necessity of this
But they the result, reality they miss.
For no o...

Alaska

A heart filled with woe
The tears that she cries,
Wilderness has claimed
Love and passion
Never to return...

Somewhere out there
A dead body lies,
Life lost forever
No one to know
Never to return...

Let It Go

Seeing through another's eyes
The anger that I can't disguise.
This place we live so full of hate
A torture that won't soon abate.
Why is this world of ours abused?
The people are just so confused.
I pray for peace that will not come,
A group that...

إن شاء الله, علي الله, إرادة الله, بأمر الله

I see the light
My hope restored,
The harp inside
Has struck a chord.

Yet somewhere deep
It lies in wait,
To pass beyond
This golden gate.

My faith restored
By unknown force,
At last is found
My hate divorced.

The Bells Now Ring, But You're Not Hear

I hear the bells yet I am lost,
Upon the chime my mind is tossed.
I need your words to make mine true
There's no one else, there's only you.
Come back to me you help inspire
The very truth that I desire.
I've lost my way my dearest friend
I want t...

The Dark Side

A darkness hangs heavy on me
Like withered leaves upon a tree.
It's shadow crawling through my soul
Dividing me so I'm not whole.
Accentuating my lifetime
A heart that is no longer mine.
Driving away all hopes for peace,
A torment that will never ...

Ask Me

You saw something in my eyes
I no longer could disguise
A history that still haunts me
Continues on as it shall be

I'm afraid of who I am
No one ever gave a d*mn
But what it is you clearly see
You look beyond and just ask me

Please Return to Me

Of simple dreams
For you I wait
A sad torn heart
That's bound in fate.

When nights are cold
I wonder true
The sky looks red
And never blue.

A burning touch
In dreams I wait
Your fiery light
Always my bait.

Thoughts About Truth

Truth.

Does it mean the facts?
Is it your inner beliefs?
What about what you feel?
Perhaps it is what your heart tells you?
Maybe our instincts?
Or does it all rely on the situation we are in at that very moment?

How Love Dies Permanently

There was a time I could love another,
Rejoiced in his embrace,
Felt lost when he was away.

I had faith in our love,
We talked and laughed for hours,
Discussed good days, bad days, hardship.

Our Good Side

Once defined it's impossible to change.
Rumors played out that's simply arranged.
Everyone has honesty and good in their heart,
Get to know them and they will show you that part.

Believe the Impossible

Keep your eyes forever forward.
Do not dwell on the past,
You cannot change it.
Thinking on it only serves to haunt.
Avoid thoughts on unchangable events.
It complicates things and you only defeat yourself.

Stand Together...The Cause

Peace with diversity,
It waits just down the road.
We are ready for acceptance,
And equality throughout this world.
The time has come to take a stand,
The few who refuse couldn't win
A battle that nearly all humanity
Would participate in.
Their ca...

Why Can't You Be Wrong?

My life is not your game.
You assumed I was guilty,
Only to be proven wrong.
But you won't admit it,
Not to me
Nor to yourself.

Internal Battle

Inside a war is waging.
A gentle, helpful grace.
The frightened and confused,
And an angry, vengeful, dark hatered.

Hate

I can move past anger, but I don't use the word hate often.
It has the implication of never forgiving and moving on.
The poem below contains only hate.

Hate in my eyes,
Daggers they've become.
If my glare could kill,
You would be the one.

To Overcome

Running for the boundary
But no escape is there.
You can't avoid yourself
If so please tell me where?

If peace is what you seek
You won't find it til death.
But I see life as precious
Worth every single breath.

Remember My Time on Earth

Long ago was an age of simplicity,
Everything new and unknown.
An age of innocence.
History never occurred to them.

Today the victors write the history.
Everything is documented.
Memories are passed down in genealogy.
Truely what do we desire?
