Without hope,

 

We would have nothing to pray for-

 

Without faith,

 

We would have nothing to believe in,

 

Without life and death,

 

We would have nothing to look forward to-

 

Without God,

 

We would have been nothing at all.

Look At Us Now

LOOK AT US NOW

By Twinkle VanFleet

E and T October 26, 2013

Him and I, October 26, 2013.

 

To love is without judgement; you know this must be true-

 

No man can put asunder, forever- only you.

 

Only rarely did we struggle- until suddenly came at once,

 

But even after the fall, our love outlasted the punch.

 

You never had to prove to me- you always tried your best,

 

Your determination would bring us up- but no one would have guessed.

 

Tremendous is my faith in you- I’ve never been unsure,

 

I’ve never doubted your abilities, because i knew who you were.

 

Endlessly praying for your spirit-during the cold hard run,

 

Prayers would soon be answered, the challenges overcome.

 

Acknowledging determined ambitions- that were virtually always missed,

 

Accomplishments defended with pride- that some said couldn’t exist.

 

Content in regards to our future, my love for you- never in doubt,

 

Lips once quivering babbled words- will dwell in endless pout.

 

True love will never make judgements, trust and faith in the solemn vow-

 

Baby, did you know we would reach it- Te Amo, look at us now.

Deuces

By Dyversiti
Eighth Note Stars

Two becomes one beat

Everybody tryin’a own me
(Control me)
Nobody wanna just show me
(Nah)
People don’t wanna jus run with me
They also gotta have a bitta piece of me
(My piece)
No one wanna keep real for the loyalty in me
They need’a go back and carry what’s mine of me
(Carry it)
People want your silence when you know of them
They won’t give any back when it’s you or them
Everyone catch the deuce when I’m down again
(Deuces)
So
(Chorus)
If you ain’t down to jus roll with me
Why Imma give you the best of me
If you ain’t got me on the flip side
Why Imma grab you from the slip and slide
Aint no body got you for the ride or die
Just wanna play you ’til they see you fly
A’ight
 (Hook)
Everybody wanna jus own us
(control us)
Nobody tryin’a just show for us
(Nope)
People don’t wanna just be with us
They also gotta take a little piece of us
(That piece)
No one wanna keep real for the loyalty in us
They have’ta go back and carry what’s ours of us
(Ours)
People reap our silence when we know of them
They won’t devote it back when it’s us or them
(Nuh uh)
Everybody catch the deuce when we up again
(Deuces)
(Chorus 2)
If you ain’t down to jus roll with us
Why we gonna give you the best of us
If you ain’t got us on the flip side
Why we gonna save you from that slip and slide
Ain’t no body got us for the ride or die
but they come right back when they see us fly
(Flying)
Yep

I ask of you, just one favor-

Let no one be your judge,

Or take advantage of your kindness-

Leaving you to hold a grudge.

Let no one steal from you your helpfulness-

Or rob you of your soft heart,

Or use you “til you’re bitter-

Or push you to fall apart.

Your gifts you’ve shared so freely-

Asking nothing in return,

Only hoping for that trust-

you so dearly do deserve.

Many will take for granted-

That “friend” they have to turn to,

Only once did I know an angel-

Sulteza, “It was you!”

When you look to yesterday-

I hope that you have,

You’ll remember the loyalty-

What I shared back.

Especially that first time-

And without question,

You had only one place to turn-

So it was without mention.

Always be happy-

keep laughing like we did,

I hope you’ve looked over your shoulder-

To see all that we’d give.

Separately, yet together-

As we moved on to live,

We’d always find our way back-

Just like when we were kids.

Crushed

Heaven

Crushed
by Twinkle VanFleet

Crush
Do what we must

Splendiferous
Love is us

Hardship
Seemingly unjust

Pain
Body and soul

Faith
To feel whole

Loss
You lose

Gain
We choose

Survive
A bitter-sweet divide

Actions
Go forth

Implement
A forgiveness course

Internalize
Hush, hush

Onward,
Crushed.
