PASSION


This was written for colleague Sanaa Rizvi's 
such passion music can raise and quell...

My passion is music, mostly Pop and soft rock
It's my refuge whenever I am lost
My roaming place is Spotify
I go there when I need to cry

on my knees
one sweet day
Jesus loves me
He came to save

Today is the day of the passion
Dark and mourning will be my fashion
I'll be listening to classical
to mend my sadness to magical

on my knees
one sweet day
Jesus loves me
He came to save

Amen I say to the Lord
Forgive them for their discord
Forgive me as I too am guilty
My sins they are your enemy.

on my knees
one sweet day
Jesus loves me
He came to save

My passion is music, mostly Gospel and the Blues
They make me celebrate my woes
My roaming place is Spotify
I go there to think and cry

on my knees
one sweet day
Jesus loves me
He came to save

Today is the day of lamentation
Souls will freeze and hearts be broken
I'll be tearful, I'll be sad
while the birds be singing: Jewel's Hands.

my hands are small
they are unworthy
Jesus take the wheel
Please uplift me

MY FAITH



This was written for my colleague Sanaa Rizvi's 
Guerison par la foi - Faith/healing

My faith keeps me alive
it's why I see myself in a positive light
My faith keeps me strong
it's why I see myself moving on.

One more day,
one more chance
one more day to start another plan

My faith is my support
I see myself moving forward
My faith is the reason
why I strive to make dreams happen

I have faith
I'll be well again
I have faith in me, a weak, little man

My faith will save me
and this I firmly believe
My faith will hold me up
to the wonders of above

and I pray
I will see you my friend
and I pray we will be together in the end.

BESOTTED (WITH GREEN)

Photo: Besotted

Written for colleague Sanaa Rizvi's
PROMPT NIGHTS 8:
WHEN BESOTTED WITH GREEN
and 
POETS UNITED'S POETRY PANTRY #292

To be besotted with green
is to daydream about Spring
leaves so green,
petals that gleam
and nature all full and serene

For me,
besotted with green means
Ed Sheeran's X
Charlie Puth's 9 Track Mind
and Adele's 21

Two of those CDs' covers
make me want to be smothered
with all that is green:
Ed's green-ness,
Puth's green shirt,
and Adele's green disc bestseller

And when I'm dizzy and weak
I look out for a drink
that Sprite or that Mountain Dew
just gets me all good and new
Green cans
Green lime
Green tastes so good.

Green is also wicked
stands too for envy and illness
Green means those who are greedy
where one is drunk with money

Green are the stereotypical emerald eyes
of fiery Redheads so sublime
Green is associated with religion
the one called Islam

For me,
besotted with green is
to be so into veggies
to fight for animal rights
to support environmental causes
and to conserve for a better life

Green, green, green.
