GREAT THINGS

GREAT THINGS

Let’s talk about something that we may not agree, it’s called fake news and it’s happened on TV.

So, don’t get this wrong because politicians know – they started fake news.

So, when this first came out they do agree, because they are the ones that started fake news.

So, look in your history book, and you will agree that fake news is not only on TV.

When people of color do great things, it’s not even in the history books – not even on TV.

SHADOW OF DESPAIR

SHADOW OF DESPAIR

It’s not prison walls that are holding me, it’s heartbreak and misery.

Let my heart journey, let my heart be free, release me from this misery.

Heartbreak coming down like rain, I can no longer take this pain, my heart is withering, it used to be strong.

Then one day you came along, playing your music, and I danced to your song.

Now you tell my heart to move on, covered with grief, and shame, like a tree in the shadows of despair.

You left my heart standing there, all alone with no one to care, In the shadow of despair.

ONE SIDE OF THE STORY

ONE SIDE OF THE STORY

Take a look around and you will see, people have been separated by rivers, valleys, and streams.
This doesn’t mean we have nothing in common, it seems to me it’s all about politics and drama.
Because when you can’t see the truth, we have nothing in common.
When people in high places tell you lies, it’s not about you, it’s what they have to hide.
Because people in high places know how to dance around the truth, then point their finger and say it’s all about you.
So, if you march for the wrong reason, in this country they call that treason.
So, if you want to walk around with one side of the story, bury your head in the sand, then we’ll never understand the other side of the story.

LIFE GOES ON

LIFE GOES ON

You taught me to love again:
From the rumbling torture of my heart;
In the depth of pain in my wounded soul,
With nothing left but solitude and regret.

Thinking that I would never love again.
Like the beginning and the end,
Somewhere in between you came in as a friend,
And you taught me to love again.

I no longer struggle from morning until night,
You came along and showed me the light.
No more anguish, no more pain,
You told me that life goes on;
To pick up my head and not be a shame.

You taught me to love again.

A SPLINTER OF HOPE

A SPLINTER OF HOPE

On dark days, hope may be hard to find,
But if you look between the lines you’ll find a splinter of hope,
Even though it may be hard to find.

Hope is what keeps the wheels turning,
Hope is what keeps a wood fire burning,
Hope is what a soldier needs when he tries to find his way,
So he won’t get lost in sympathy.

Sympathy will bring you to your knees,
Hope will lift you higher so you can see,
Beyond the stars, beyond the clouds, beyond eternity.

Hope will give you what you need when you’re fighting for what you believe.
