GENIE YOU'RE FREE

Rest in peace Sir Williams
even though it wasn't your time
I'll mourn you always Robin
your ending is a sign

for me to be alert
to the evils of depression
for it is a taker of lives
a dark, melancholic condition

I pray I'll endure the trials
and tribulations of my journey
I pray for my survival
from the demons that follow me

Rest in peace Genie Patch Pan
never knew you were in pain
You were always the funny man
whose love was to entertain

Children everywhere are mourning
the news was a shock
I, myself have tried to block
the reality of its meaning.
 
I am struggling
with just a heart and a soul
my bones are weak and cold
my muscles diminishing
 
Robin my hero
It is wrong to judge you
I suffer the same battle
God don't let me go
 
Rest in peace Mr. Williams
May you soar high above the planet
You could have been saved
But what's done is done.
 
Mother Mary
There's got to be a way
to stop all these self-killings
it's an injustice I'll say
 
"Genie you're free," says Aladdin
in the Disney movie
that shall immortalize him
amongst then, now, and
future generations of children.
 
 
 
the above youtube video from user: murphfishing is dedicated to Robin Williams
who died of what the police have ruled a suicide yesterday, August 11, 2014.  It
is Susan Boyle of Great Britain's rendition of the song, "Hallelujah" from her
2010 release, "The Gift."  Enjoy and take a moment of silence to pray for Robin
Williams' precious soul.

SATURDAYS

I'm havin' so much fun
I never knew that life could be such a blast
I don't want to slow it down
now I'm with you I'm having so much fun

******************

Saturdays are my days of absolute rest
That's when I am either sleeping or online
or I am listening to music and having a great time
Thanks to the world wide web

On Saturday,
I have no cares for the world all over
I am cruising with my lover
while friends in the backseat holler:
This is the life, awesome day!
I enjoy my Saturdays thank you very much
This is when I facebook with friends
to keep in touch.
This is when I visit the local mall
or to go run my usual, personal errands
or going to soccer practice, wish me luck!
On Saturday,
I would do my laundry
wash my clothes soiled and dirty
then turn the TV on to watch a comedy
to hear Monique say, "hey!"
I love my Saturdays like crazy
This is when I am gathering ideas
and not being lazy
This is when I am composing a poem
or being busy in my garden of petunias
or reading the Book of Psalms maybe.
On Saturday,
I meditate by myself in my room
relaxing to peaceful music by some guru
I'm planted, fed, watered, and bloomed
for an hour until my spirits are raised.
