YOU FLIPPED THAT SWITCH

I was so dead insideNo chance of hope

I was just along for the ride

Trying to hide being a big mope
Your smile lifted me up

Your laugh was so contagious

I drank from your cup

And it’s just so outrageous
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
For so long I felt so lost

Just taking up space

I felt I had no worth and no cause

Turns out all I needed was your friendly face
You let me into your life

And showed me another world

You spun me around and took out the knife

The thoughts in my head swirled
With a flip of a switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
I look into your eyes

I can get so happily lost

No more alibis

Your sun has melted my frost

With the flip of switch
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
I cannot stop smiling 

Seeing the beauty in everything

Your love is all I’m dialing

You can hear my heart singing
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch
It’s electric

Since you flipped that switch

I feel the electricity

Since you flipped that switch

Inside of me

Since you flipped that switch
With a flip of switch

You changed me

And my attitude

My life has gotten so rich

I can finally see

It’s a whole new pitch

Since you flipped that switch

Now I’m in love

Since you flipped that switch

I’m outta that ditch

Since you flipped that switch

The Message Of Love

We must stop giving hate any platform at all. There are a lot of good people doing great things in the world. They should get the platform. They should be the news story everyday. Then good can spread and inspire others with a message of compassion, peace, and love, and become more contagious, more acceptable. It is the right choice.Namaste

SOME DAYS

I was getting tiredI had a lack of sleep

Trying to climb the mountain slope

But the path was too steep
I promised her

I’d meet her at the top

There were many obstacles 

There was no way I could stop
I promised her

I’d be there by sunset

Keeping a promise to her

Is never a regret
It took too long

The sun had gone down

In my mind I feared

I would see her tears and frown
I got to the summit

I couldn’t see anything

It was pitch black

No spoils for a king
Some days you think

You’re better off dead

If it didn’t take so much fucking work

So you just lay in bed

And cry like some fucking jerk
She wasn’t there anymore

Didn’t even leave a note

It was getting so cold waiting

I didn’t think to bring a coat
I could hear my heartbeat echo

As I planted my broken promises in the ground

I buried them deep

Because I didn’t want them found
I sighed and then began

My long and lonely decent 

As my mind wandered

At how much my love for her meant
Some days you think

Of the all the little things

That meant nothing in your life

And how inconsequential they are

And yet they hurt your feelings
I slid in the mud down the slope

So I started to roam

Through the dark woods

Till I got down and started my long walk home
I missed the sun rise

As I continued on with my hike

I wish she waited for me

As I reached in my heart and pulled out the spike
Some days you think

What is it all you do it for?

You take your beatings

Time and time again

And still you want more
Some days you think

Some days you think

The day will never end

And some days you think

You got more time to lend

BIRTH OF THE PHOENIX

I was born under the sign of AumI was built from the same mettle as the blade of the sword of Odin

And I was under the careful Eye of Horus

And when I thought the flames had all but consumed me

And taken me right to my bones

And into my soul

Something changed

Changed deep inside of me

And lifted me up

Up out of the ashes

A burning flight across the sky

To a higher elevation

To a better position

To a better view

I was reborn

I was new

I was

And I am

I am whole
