Can You See The Pride In The Panther?
Can u c the pride in the pantha as he glows in splendor and grace Topping OBSTACLES placed in the way of the progression of his race Can u c the pride in the Pantha as she nurtures her young all alone The seed must grow regardless of the fact that it?s planted in stone Can't u c the pride in the panthas as they unify as one The flower blooms with brilliance and outshines the rays of the sun dream alive

The Rose That Grew From The Concrete
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's law is wrong it learned to walk with out having feet. Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared.
Today is filled with anger, fueled with hidden hate. Scared of being outkast, afraid of common fate. Today is built on tragedies which no one wants to face. Nightmares to humanity and morally disgraced. Tonight is filled with rage, violence in the air. Children bred with ruthlessness cause no one at home cares. Tonight I lay my head down but the pressure never stops, knawing at my sanity, content when I'm dropped. But tomorrow I see a change, a chance to build anew, built on Spirit, intent of heart, and ideas based on truth. Tomorrow I wake with second wind and strong ideas of pride. I know I fought with all my heart to keep the dream alive.
In The Event Of My Demise
In the event of my Demise when my heart can beat no more I Hope I Die For A Principle or A Belief that I had Lived 4 I will die Before My Time Because I feel the shadow's Depth so much I wanted 2 accomplish before I reached my Death I have come 2 grips with the possibility and wiped the last tear from My eyes I Loved All who were Positive In the event of my Demise
Ambition Over Adversity
Take one's adversity Learn from their misfortune Learn from their pain Believe in something Believe in yourself Turn adversity into ambition Now blossom into wealth
Sometimes when I'm alone I Cry, Cause I am on my own. The tears I cry are bitter and warm. They flow with life but take no form I Cry because my heart is torn. I find it difficult to carry on. If I had an ear to confiding, I would cry among my treasured friend, but who do you know that stops that long, to help another carry on. The world moves fast and it would rather pass by. Then to stop and see what makes one cry, so painful and sad. And sometimes... I Cry and no one cares about why.
The Power Of A Smile
The power of a gun can kill and the power of Fire can Burn The power of wind can chill and the power of the mind can learn The power of anger can rage inside until it tears u apart But the Power of a Smile especially yours can heal a frozen Heart
(The Rebirth of My Heart) (dedicated 2 Chantel Zagari)
First there was nothing Not even the faint echo of a song Loneliness was daily 4 me until u came along There was a gleam of stars in your eyes I thought I'd never feel this way again But u were the one 2 reach into my heart And find in me a Friend I could not ignore the magnetism that I felt when u were near And any problems plaguing my mind would suddenly disappear It was the rebirth of my heart The day u became my friend Because I knew from the moment I held u that I would find love again
Love Within a Storm
We mad love within a storm in the midst of passion and chaos somewhere, somehow our true bond of friendship was lost In the eye of the storm The rain always falls harder Those who prevail this trauma will learn 2 bring their love farther But now the storm has passed and the seas of our friendship R calm But as long as I live I will remember the love within the storm
What Can I Offer Her?
All of my life I dreamed of meeting one with immense beauty, and once I found her I would charm her and she?d be mine forever I have found her and indeed she is all I wished for and more but she is not charmed nor intrigued. Then I think 2 myself "What can I offer her?" The tears warm my eyes and blur my vision. I stick 2 my stance of bravado and give her the same uninterested look she gave me. She was so beautiful But what can I offer her.
Under The Skies Above
(After the miscarriage) My child is out there somewhere under the skies above waiting anxiously 4 u and me 2 bless it with our love A part of me a part of u and a part of this love we share will protect my unborn child who lives dormant out there somewhere Sometimes in my dreams I imagine what it would be like How could I properly guide him when even I don't know what's right Whether he is born in wealth or poverty there will be no dificiency in love I welcome this gift of life given from GOD under the skies above
Life Through My Eyes
Life through my bloodshot eyes would scare a square 2 death poverty, murder, violence and never a moment 2 rest Fun and games R few but treasured like gold 2 me cuz I realize that I must return 2 my spot in poverty But mock my words when I say my heart will not exist unless my destiny comes through and put an end 2 all of this
When Ur Heart Turns Cold
(2 Kristen & My Other Friends Who Wonder) When your heart turns cold it causes your soul 2 freeze It spreads throughout your spirit like a ruthless feeling disease The walls that once were down now stand firm and tall Safe from hate/love, pain/joy until u feel nothing at all When ure heart turns cold a baby's cry means nothing A dead corpse is trivial Mothers neglecting children is daily Loneliness becomes your routine friend Death seems like tranquility Sleeping is never pleasant if u even sleep at all u forgot ideals and turn off the reason 2 make sure the product gets sold You don't understand how I behave Just wait till your heart turns Cold!
Every word cuts 2 the heart conversations R ended be4 they start is this what u want? Is this what must be? This is not a game This is a love one should be played The other cherised I feel 2 hearts breaking? is this what u want? is this what I want? is this what must be?
Love Is Just Complicated
Love Is Just Complicated you ask me 2 communicate what it is I feel within I search 4 words 2 assist but I find none 2 help me begin I guess love is just complicated Love is just complicated. I thought I knew my heart's desire I thought I quenched my burning fire I thought I wanted "A" But "A" was 2 mixed up with "B" Then "C" made me more confused So "A" turned off me and "B" feels better. "C" is upset and lonely and me, I think Love is complicated. Love is just complicated.

I know my heat has lied before but now it speaks with honesty of an invisible bond of friendship that as formed in secrecy Coming from me this may seem hard but 2 GOD I swear it's the truth We R friends for eternity and Forever I will always love u.
The Eternal Lament
From my mind 2 the depths of my soul I yearn 2 achieve all of my goals And all of my free time will be spent On the 1's I miss I will lament I am not a perfectionist But still I seek perfection I am not a great romantic But yet I yearn 4 affection Eternally my mind will produce ways 2 put my talents 2 use and when I'm done no matter where I've been I'll yearn 2 do it all again.

The Shining Star Within
(Dedicated To Marilyn Monroe) Secrets R hidden within the clouds of Darkness, And in this place no on Dares 2 Breathe in Fear of self-expression It has been this way forever and a day until she came 2 shine with a spark of innocence and questions only 2 be answered with Darkness not just Darkness but hte silent kind that steals your soul and kills your mind There was no compassion for this thriving star only exploitations and confused jealousy u saw no hope and brought the end Never acknowledging the star within
If I Fail
If I Fail If in my quest 2 achieve my goals I stumble or crumble and lose my soul Those that knew me would easily co-sign There was never life as hard as mine No father-no money-no chance and no guide I only follow my voice inside if it guides me wrong and I do not win I'll learn from mistakes and try 2 achieve again.
What is It That I Search For
I know not what I search 4 But I know I have yet 3 find it, Because it is invisible 2 the eye My heart must search 4 it blinded. And if by chance I find it, Will I know my mission is achieved? Can one come 2 conclusions, Before the question is conceived? Just as no one knows what lies beyond the shore, I will never find the answer 2 what it is that I search 4.
The Fear in the Heart of a Man
(Dedicated 2 My Heart) against an attacker I will boldly take my stand because my heart will show fear 4 no man but 4 a broken heart I run with fright scared 2 be blind in a vulnerable night I believe this fear is in every man some will acknowledge it others will fail 2 understand there is no fear in a shallow heart but feeling hearts that truly care are fragile 2 the flow of air and if I am 2 be true then I must give my fragile heart I may receive great joy or u may return it ripped apart

The Mutual Heartache
Introduced with innocence who would have ever guessed that u were the one I had been so desperately searching 4 u talk as I do but yet u don't understand when I mumble u c as I do but your vision is blurred by naivete This is the barrier that separates us I cannot cross yet There is 2 much of me that would frighten u so I live in heartache because we cannot fully explore this love and what of your heartache Does it feel as sharp as mine No matter where I go or how long it takes I will never recover from this mutual heartache.

A Love Unspoken
What of a love unspoken? Is it weaker without a name? Does this love deserve 2 exist without a title because I dare not share its name Does that make me cruel and cold 2 deny the world of my salvation because I chose 2 let it grow People tend 2 choke that which they do not understand Why shouldn't I be weary and withhold this love from MAN What of a love unspoken no one ever knows But this is a love that lasts and in secrecy it grows
Forever and Today
U say that u'll love me forever but what about today As the dusks become dawns and the years pass on will u love me the same way if so let us rejoice and bathe in constant pleasure if not spare my heart today and I shall recover before forever And if my doubts and ?'s upset u, forgive my fragile heart I just wanted 2 know if you'd love me forever before today would start
When I Do Kiss You

Tears from a Star
(4 Me & April) my tears they fall with passion Like tears conceived form stars Full of brightness & energy Seen only form afar Tonight these tears are full of pain but also I can feel relief from my heart Because the stigma is revealed unfaithful and unforgiven I cannot bear 2 let this be So I must be pure 2 only her for eternity
March 1st - The Day After April

Why Must U Be Unfaithful (4 Women)
MEN! u shouldn't listen 2 your selfish heart It doesn?t rea lly have a brain Besides keeping u alive its existence is in vain "How could I be so mean, and say your heart has no place?" Because mortal men fall in love again as fast as they change their face I may be cruel, but think awhile about The hearts that u have broken Match that with the empty vows I am not saying females R perfect Because men we know it?s not true But why must u be unfaithful If her heart is true 2 u!!!!
U R Ripping Us Apart
Before u came the triangle never broke, we were bonded and melded as one, but as the 2 pushed u away, The one got weak and embraced u and now u r ripping us apart, The worst feeling of helplessness, The greatest pain has rested in my heart, The vision of heaven fades and the nightmare of loneliness has started, My hero has been defeated by you and now what can I do, watch as u destroy us and our love is finally through, I know the worst is here I feel it in my Heart u got into the circle now you're tearing us apart.
A creative heart, obsessed with satisfying this dormant and uncaring society you have given them the stars at night and u have given them Bountiful Bouquets of Sunflowers but 4 u there is only contempt and though u pour yourself into that fame and present it so proudly this world could not accept your masterpieces from the heart So on that starry night u gave 2 us and u took away from us the one thing we never acknowledged your life.
