You are Kilimanjaro, 2015

I have tried,
By words and deeds,
I have tried,
But you are so high,
Too high,
To smile back at me,
To laugh at mine jokes,
And return my words of love,
To feel my heart bleed for you
And the more I try,
The more, I just can’t get there
I just can’t seem to find you,
To get into your heart,
To make you mine,
To make you love me
And every time I try,
I keep falling,
I keep failing,
As you are Kilimanjaro

I have tried,
Heaven Knows I have tried
To be like you,
And match up to your big name,
Just so I can please you,
Be the son you’ve always wanted,
But I just don’t seem to get there,
The more I try,
The more I keep falling,
I have even tried dressing like you,
Walking like you
Went to school for you
Yet I am not as bright as you,
But the more I try to make you proud,
The more I fail,
The more I fall,
As you are Kilimanjaro

I have tried,
Mother I have tried,
But I keep falling shot,
I always come out second,
As the daughter who is not good enough,
Not beautiful enough,
Not pure enough
And the more I try,
The more I fail
The more I fall
Yet I went out with them,
I even married him,
And gave you grandsons
Just to please you
To make you proud
But you are so high,
So fly,
You are Kilimanjaro

But why should I try?
Why should I please you?
Why even love you? Or bother?
If you will not see the good in me,
The love in my heart,
Fine,
I loved you,
And cared for you,
I worshiped and obeyed you,
But I can’t keep failing,
And keep falling,
Just because you are Kilimanjaro

Beautiful Heart

When you smile,
By the sound of your laughter,
By a look into your eyes,
All I see is your beautiful heart,
Your heart so loving,
A heart so pure!

As you take each stride,
And I watch you from a distance,
All I see is delight in my sight,
As you speak into my ears,
All I hear is the sound of your beautiful heart,
Your heart so loving,
A heart so pure!

As you listen to my words of love,
And speechless only nod your head,
As though your life depends on them,
I feel your beautiful heart,
Your heart so loving,
A heart so pure!
In times of trouble,
When my world shutters,
When light turns into darkness,
Then you hold me in your arms,
All that gives me comfort is your beautiful heart,
Your heart so loving,
A heart so pure!

My world your world,
Your love my love,
Your sorrows mine sorrows,
Your life, my life,
With thy heart so loving,
A heart so pure,
A beautiful Heart.

Little by Little

Started with the a, b, c,
Just as soon as I could see,
Then the a e i o u,
That would make you, clue, two and too,
Then the baba, mama, tata,
As I feasted on butter,
Little by little I grew,
And more I knew

I was told the one, two three,
And to play hide and seek behind the tree,
Then addition, subtraction,
Multiplication and division,
Little by little I knew,
Little by little I grew

Then I could write my name,
Write the letters up and down the stem,
Then words,
And the colors in the cards,
Little by little I have known,
Little by little I have grown
Then was told about humans in biology,
Listen to reasoning in philosophy,
Religion in theology,
Chemicals in chemistry,
Diagrams in geometry,
Little by little I have Know,
Little by little I have grown,

And there is no end,
That’s the trend,
Little by little I will still know
And still grow

Isn’t it Time Jesus?

I look up to heaven,
And with a heavy heart can’t help but ask,
Isn’t it time Jesus?
Time to come again

I know you said it’s up to the father,
Sorry to bother,
The Earth is in tatters,
Nothing really matters and I wonder,
Isn’t it time Jesus?
Time to come again

You said there will be wars and rumors of war,
Haven’t we been marred by civil wars?
Nations against nations, tribes against tribes?,
Man killing man and floods of blood,
Isn’t it time Jesus?
Time to come again

Many have come in your name,
And rose instantly to fame,
A fame of shame I would say,
With their miracles and spiracle,
Yet your house father, den of thieves,
Is it not time Jesus?
Is it not time to come again?

Millions caught in the web of poverty,
Children hunger to death,
Many others stung by cancer, Aids that blaze,
Is that not proof that it is time?
Isn’t it time Jesus?
Time to come again

I am told of hurricane caterina
Earthquakes and floods
And the landslides,
Can’t help but ask, isn’t it time Jesus?
Time to come again
Are these not the last days?
Have heard of the illuminati
Would say they are crafty,
But I know you said there will be Godlessness
And so I must ask, isn’t it time Jesus?
Time to come back to earth.
