Movie Frame

She walks the path her heels mask the young thinking mind inside

Young she is, but old beyond her tears

Finding it hard to walk straight today

Found out the last man didn’t pay

She thought he put the money on the side as he would

But instead he took the goods without paying what he should

She has a part to play again

So she is out looking for fame

Another movie frame

She walks to the car, her heart filled with scars

Gets in the ride, her fear no longer hides

He looks at her without a care

Others look and stare

She smiles back

Her heart cracks

She knows why they look

Her pride he took

She’s trying to make a name

For her movie frames

Life Doesn’t Frighten Me

jean michel basquiat boy-and-dog-in-a-johnnypump

Shadows on the wall
Noises down the hall
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Bad dogs barking loud
Big ghosts in a cloud
Life doesn’t frighten me at all

Mean old Mother Goose
Lions on the loose
They don’t frighten me at all

Dragons breathing flame
On my counterpane
That doesn’t frighten me at all.

I go boo
Make them shoo
I make fun
Way they run
I won’t cry
So they fly
I just smile
They go wild

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

Tough guys fight

All alone at night
Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

Panthers in the park
Strangers in the dark
No, they don’t frighten me at all.

That new classroom where
Boys all pull my hair
(Kissy little girls
With their hair in curls)
They don’t frighten me at all.

Don’t show me frogs and snakes
And listen for my scream,
If I’m afraid at all
It’s only in my dreams.

I’ve got a magic charm
That I keep up my sleeve
I can walk the ocean floor
And never have to breathe.

Life doesn’t frighten me at all
Not at all
Not at all.

Life doesn’t frighten me at all.

The Caged Bird – inspired by Maya Angelou

The cat has my tongue, what has yours?

It holds my voice between its paws

Caged for years to be let free from bars

Only for the cat to stay in charge

I fear the cat, as I can never win

Now you know why the caged bird sings

C cunning, salty and raw

U you are lower case but stand above us

L lost, but loved by many

T take from the source

U you wonder where I can be found

R realising I cannot be bought

E experienced in robbing my

CULTURE

The cat has my tongue, what has yours?

It holds my voice between its paws

Caged for years to be let free from bars

Only for the cat to stay in charge

Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions – People Get Ready

Whilst I may not believe the suffering and pain many experience around the world will end, I believe we as the people must get ready. Get ready to open our minds to the corruption in front of our very eyes. We must arm ourselves with knowledge, as knowledge is power. We must help educate the next person who seeks knowledge. Whilst I may not believe that the evils of the world will stop their destruction, I do believe we as the people must get ready. Power to Us.
