Gazza with one "Z"
When did it all start to melt down?
Those wonderful feet became chequered,
with blood filled fat cheeks where
the laces came loose and the boots fell off.
Sanction My Portrayal
Dear God Talk to me
Can you tell me a story?
Of how my life maps out
SoI don't need to worry
A Line or Two
What happened here miss?
It was sky's the limit for you 'til...
You started poppin those pills now you can't even keep still
Sad as every time I see you somthing is missing
Waitin 4 D 1
What can I say?
What can I do?
About the reason I be stressing
I'm missing a female in my world
A time when I'm lost for words
Running short of laughter
I'm finding it hard to deal with the stress
My shoulders can't take the pressure
Drama in the street
The victim's blood sprayed
Made puddle on the concrete
It was cleaned the next day
Strange but not a stranger.
Welcome to my world, the cracks in the walls
papered over, to give some appearance of
normality, singed brown with the fire of my
Elevator doors part in slow motion
I stand before you
I can see your chest,
and the grey hairs that flexed,
building this room.
The Key to Life’s Questions: Hope
Why do bad things happen to good souls?
It is because these souls have the courage and bravery to act bold.
God tests them so they can inspire others,
They have the strength to pass with flying colors.
