9/30/2016 – MEASURE OF LOVE

This is my favorite poem of all time:

MEASURE OF LOVE

If love were measured by farther or far;
Miles from home or a twinkling star.
If love were poured like wine from a jar
Bought from a stall in some twilight bazaar,
Or served on the Host like divine caviar…
That feast goes with us wherever we are.

If love were a gauge marking hours and days,
A kiss or caress, or a passionate gaze.
If love were a stage and upon it sad plays,
Or the lines of a sonnet fixed on a page
Like blood on a bandage, a lock on a cage
Where love is held hostage and meekly obeys.

If love were a castle and desire its gate,
Envy its vassal in dungeons of hate.
Streets of indulgence paved with delight
Where torches of longing burned through the night,
Towers of rapture, gardens of grace,
Could mortals abide such a glorious place?

If love were a precious stone or a gem
Cleverly sewn into some beggar’s hem
To have and to hold, to fondle, caress,
To covet as gold but never to guess
The true measure of love isn’t sterling or carat,
Simply the pleasure to give and to share it

You know that I want you
And you know that I need you
I want it bad, your bad romance

‘Cause you’re a criminal
As long as you’re mine
I want your love
(Love-love-love I want your love-uuhh)

I want your psycho
Your vertigo shtick
Want you in my rear window
Baby you’re sick
I want your love
Love-love-love
I want your love
(Love-love-love I want your love)

You know that I want you
(‘Cause I’m a free bitch baby!)
And you know that I need you
I want it bad, bad romance

I want your revenge
You and me could write a bad romance
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!)

All your lover’s revenge
You and me could write a bad romance

9/27/2016 – DON’T QUIT

  DON’T QUIT
                                          DON’T QUIT !

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must – but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt –
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

9/24/2016 – *Choices*

* Choices *

Jesus, also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth or Jesus Christ, was a Jewish preacher and religious reformer who has become the central figure of Christianity. Christians believe him to be the Son of God and the awaited Messiah (Christ, the Anointed One) prophesied in the Holy Bible in the Old Testament.

Remember we are also at fault, so forgive, but don’t forget.
We reap what we sow, we choose where we go.
The choices we make; we can’t take them back.
So take time to think, don’t just react.
Because we can’t change past mistakes, but what we do today paints our future.

We are fallen saints turned into world class sinners.
If we repent for our sins, we will be forgiven.
It’s our choice where we go for our eternal living.

God Bless 🙂

9/22/2016 – “America’s Sweetheart”

“America’s Sweetheart” – By: Elle King

DISCLAIMER: I do not own this song.

“America’s Sweetheart”
No, there ain’t nothing that I gotta prove
You think your words will make me black and blue, but I
I think I’m pretty with these old boots on
I think it’s funny when I drink too much, hey
You tryna change me, you can go to hell
Cause I don’t wanna be nobody else
I like the chip I got in my front teeth
And I got bad tattoos you won’t believe

So kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
So beat the drum with me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
Well, they say I’m too loud
For this town
So I lit a match
And burned it down
What do you want from me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
But you love me anyway

My hands are dirty and my heart is cold
Them boys I’ve been with say I got no soul, when I
I need another honey at the bar
I’ll think it’s funny when I break his heart
My kind of medicine is whiskey straight
I got a mouth to put you in your place, and they
They said I’ll never be the poster type
But they don’t make posters of my kind of life

So kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
So beat the drum with me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
Well, they say I’m too loud
For this town
So I lit a match
And burned it down
What do you want from me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
But you love me anyway

You love me anyway
You love me anyway

Kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Holler if you ready, gonna lose control
Kick out the jams, kick up the soul
Pour another glass of that rock and roll
Turn up the band, fire in the hole
Gonna lose control tonight

What do you want from me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
So beat the drum with me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
Well, they say I’m too loud
For this town
So I lit a match
And burned it down
What do you want from me
I’m not America’s sweetheart
But you love me anyway

You love me anyway
You love me anyway

I’m not America’s sweetheart

9/20/2016 – “Under The Influence”

“Under The Influence” – By: Elle King

Just another morning
With shaky hands, pounding head
I guess I did it again
Try to leave, but I can’t stand
Start to think that I’m better off dead
I’m sick of this condition
Your kiss is my addiction
I can tell you cast a spell that knows no moderation
It’s dangerous, the things we do
Under the influence, I got no defense
It might be criminal, but still I just can’t quit
Under the influence, I’ll take the consequence
Well if it’s poisonous, let it take my last breath
Under the influence
Temptation, creeping up on me
Gets under my skin, won’t let me be
Haunt my days and haunt my sleep, viciously unrelenting
Oh, lay down again
Oh, give in again
And oh, feel good again
Begging for another beautiful sin
It’s dangerous, the things we do
Under the influence, I got no defense
It might be criminal, but still I just can’t quit
Under the influence, I’ll take the consequence
Well if it’s poisonous, let it take my last breath
Under the influence, the walls are closing in
It’s inevitable, but I can’t see him
Leaving out the destruction of your love
Oh, oh
Under the influence, I’ll take the consequence
Well if it’s poisonous, let it take my last breath
Under the influence, I got no defense
It might be criminal, but still I just can’t quit
Under the influence, I’ll take the consequence
Well if it’s poisonous, let it take my last breath
Under the influence
Under the influence
Under the influence
