    Work To Play:

    Take Life For Today
    Don’t Let It Go To Waste
    Make The Memories Stay
    Deliberate To Haste
    I Hear The Morning Cry
    The Birds, They Sing Then Fly
    Catch Fish With Some Rods
    And Overcome Impossible Odds
    Let’s Drink The Great, Sweet Wine
    To Join Us When We Dine
    Feel The Music Within
    Life Too Can Be Devine

    I Often Play The Fool
    Jump When You Say Go
    Race Within The Pool
    How I Want To Take It Slow
    Yes Fine Tune And Bloom
    Fine Tune My Tools
    What Ever You Desire
    I’ll Always Want More
    Let’s Sing And Then Regret
    To The Places We Forget
    The Times Of Our Great Friends
    I Wonder If We Met
    Believe In Reincarnation
    Keep Potential Alive
    Because In The Sea Of Damnation
    Only The Strong Minded Survive

    When The Fun Is Over
    How You Want To Sing
    Life Then Can Then Surprise You
    Surprise To Anything
    Look Up To The Sky At Night
    See The Shining Light
    Life Again, I See
    Infinite And Free
    The Potential Vast And Silent
    Hope We Aren’t To Late
    As We Work To Play
    Yes Sometimes We Work To Play
    Play Out Our Fate

    Know Your Limitations
    Life’s The Only Thing I Own
    I Know Not What I Want
    But How I’m Nearly Grown
    Take Me As I Want It
    Don’t Give Me All That Sort
    Of Rubbish And Assorted
    Life Is Way Too Short…

    High O\R Low?:


    Some Still Dreaming
    Some Still Soothing
    Yeah That’s Okay
    Today Still Some Peeling
    Yeah Some Reeling, So Pathetic Really

    Are You
    Are You The One Still Following
    Yeah You Are The One That Kept Swallowing That Amaurotic Faith
    Hook, Line, Fool And Sinker
    And I Just Got Accused
    Yeah I Got Amused
    I Just Was, Was I?
    Yeah Always A Thinker
    …And Justice For All
    Remember

    Yeah Remember That Last Cold December
    You Never Couldn’t
    Remember
    You Can’t Sedate
    Yeah You Can’t Sedate All The Things You Hate

    That’s Ok, Always Ok By Me
    That You Still Like To Debate
    Yeah Still Like To Hate
    Cause I Am We
    And We Are Many
    Yeah Always Happy – Deciding On Our Own Fate









    When I Might
    Yeah When I Die
    Don’t Really Care If You Cry
    Yeah Don’t Be Afraid, But
    Just Put Me And My Music
    In Our Own Motorcade
    Yeah In My Own Death Parade
    …And Make Sure I’m In The Shade
    Yeah Not Near Your Zone
    Cause I’ve Always Liked
    Yeah Always Liked To Be Alone
    Good It Is
    Now That Your Eyes Really Can See
    High And Low
    Yeah Both Behind And In Front Of You, Even Me
    And Maybe To; Agree, Let’s See
    Yeah Do You Now Agree
    That The Crack Inside Your Fucking Heart, Is Not
    And Never Was Me
    They Always Were Your Seeds
    Yeah Your Foul Seeds To Sow

    If You Don’t Dance, You’re Dead
    If You Don’t Regret, You Cry
    If You Don’t Live, You Slide
    Yeah If You Don’t Love, U Might Just Die

    Time Is A Nuisance To All
    Yeah To All That Consume It
    Like A Slow Releasing Poison
    Making It’s Mark
    Sometimes Making It Spark In The Dark

    Yeah It Creeps Up
    It Creeps Up On Thee
    To One Day Set You Free
    Yeah All In All We Cannot See
    The Timing
    …And The Tuning Of Our Musical Strings
    Yeah The Timing To Set Us Free
    A Time To Decide What To Bring


    \Why Does It Exist
    There Is No Why
    Yeah It Simply Does
    In The Sky Land Or Water
    High Or Low – What’s The Time Now
    Cause I Got To Go
    Yeah I’ve Gotta Go Back To My Own
    Space Time,
    My Time So I Can Glow
    Yes Flow Down The River Of My Next Life
    Yeah, Just Say On With The Show.

    True eXisTenZ:


    The Balls Of Glowing Gases
    Never Look The Same Way
    They’re Twinkling In The Sky
    At A Zillion Miles Away
    Massive Immovable Objects
    Yet Moving All The Time
    Always Getting Larger
    The Question In The Back Of My Mind
    Imagine The Great Distances
    That Separate Each Lonely Star
    Imagine It, How Can You
    No Matter How Advanced You Are
    Our Existence Is Truly Enigmatic
    Yes, True Existence
    True Existenz We All Are
    At Night
    I See The Stars Moving
    I Wonder At The Sight
    Or Are We Just Spinning
    In The Infinite Sky Tonight
    Hydrogen And Elements Found
    In Our Domain To This Day
    They Act As Fuels For Such Light And Sound
    Life Within The Milky Way
    Stars Stand For Things Far And Wide
    Any Places, Any Thing
    Constellations That Just Can’t Hide
    Or Can They, An Enigmatic Thing
    Yet, This We Do Not Know
    Don’t Think We Could Handle It
    Otherwise We’d Try And Go
    Already, Thus Departed
    Turn And Face A Different Star
    You Don’t Know Just How Luck You Are
    Are You Really Interested
    Or Has The Sight
    Been Taken In For Granted
    Nothing Is Impossible
    The Difficulties And Risks May Increase
    These Can Be Adaptable
    Otherwise Our Dreams Will Cease
    Minds Travel At An Extraordinary Pace
    The Hopes And Dreams, They Don’t Resist
    For There Is No Time And Space
    And No Boundaries That Exist
    To Think We Are Alone
    We’d Have To Be Naïve
    For In The Twilight Zone
    They Mislead To Deceive
    Our Galaxy Is But One Of Many
    There Are So Many Far Away
    Will We Ever Reach One
    Well Maybe One Day…

    A Dream of Love
    One night when I fell asleep I had a wonderful dream.
    In that dream I saw beautiful and majestic things.
    I saw a most beautiful sunset where the reds were as bright as a strawberry.
    And with purples so deep you could fall in them.
    I saw a most majestic sight, a wonderful flower with bright and beautiful colors.
    It was a beautiful lilac, a wonderful fuchsia, and a soft lavender.
    But then I saw something more beautiful and majestic than anything I had seen.
    It was a familiar girl she had beautiful dark hair, and with lustrous dark eyes.
    She had beautiful hair, and a perfect angel's face, and an angel's smile.
    She would still be beautiful even if you put her in clothes covered in mud.
    She was by far the most beautiful person or object I had seen.
    Then I woke up and I realized something.
    I know this girl but not as well as I want to be or need to be.
    Then I cried for I knew she would never feel the way I feel about her.

    The moon rises in a gentle sweep.
    It sits in the sky like the ruler of the night.
    It is meant to be seen and not to keep.
    It is a powerful force you can not fight.
    You feel peacefulness as you sleep.
    It is unavoidable even if you use all your might.
    It soon leaves with a giant leap.
    It is gone for another day but still left its gift of being bright.

    Take time
    Take time to look and you will see
    Blessings pouring down like rain
    Take time to listen
    And you may hear the whisper of better things to come
    Take time out of your day to pray
    And you will find that circumstances will change
    Take time to enjoy the beauty of life
    And the noise and worries of the day will fade
    Take time to thank God for all the good things he brings your way.
    Just take time, because time is not always available to take.

    I thought you would see it by now.
    No matter what i do, i cant seemto make you proud.
    I've been neglected, mistreated, and hurt.
    Being with you was an all time perk.
    I work so hard for your love and trust.
    You're the one who got the best of us.
    Now you scream like Hell let lose.
    So I'll give you a hug and hand you a nouse.

    You can hang me high, so you wont forget my face.
    Let the love run dry, dripping in my place.
    You made this choice when you told me to leave.
    I had nowhere to go.
    you didn't appreciate me.
    So as i hang here looking down on you, I'll cry one more tear like the girl you knew.

    The NATURE:

    Winning Isn’t Everything
    In Order To Score
    It Takes A Whole Lot
    Then A Whole Lot More
    Psyche Out The Foe
    Question, You Will Know
    Learn Out All You Can
    You Must Put On The Show
    Have You Learned Enough
    To Take A Giant Puff
    On Your Better One
    The One With All The Stuff

    You’ve Run Out Of Time
    The Time To Act Is Now
    Quench For Thirst The Lime
    To Repeatedly Show Us How
    You Are To Play The Game
    Along, They’re All The Same
    Some Enjoy The Fame
    Pasted With Their Name
    Oh My Dear You Lost





    Well, Isn’t That The Cost
    I Think I’ve Had Enough
    Well, Throw It All Away
    You’re Going Through A Phase
    And On A Perfect Day
    You’ll Work Out The Maze
    The Labyrinth Within
    I’m Thinking I Can Win
    When The Time Is Right
    You’ll Scream And Dance Right In
    I’m In The Middle Now
    The Dancing Of The Set
    Look And Watch Me How
    I Terminate The Bet
    The Terminator’s Back
    I’m Back And Just Look Out
    For The Nature Of My Sack
    Then The Nature Of The Spout
    You See, You Paid The Cost
    Of Playing To Win
    You Won But Also Lost
    Now You Know, You’re In…

    The Green Dragon:

    Standing Out And Looking
    I Hold You Close Tonight
    Wondering And Thinking
    Reality’s Out Of Sight
    If And When I See You
    I Won’t Know What To Say
    Seeing You Is Better
    I’ll Remember You That Way
    Saying Words To Please Me
    You Tear My Heart Apart
    Feelings, Now They’re Easy
    Especially From The Heart
    Life Is Filled With Choices
    We See These Every Day
    I Hear The Same Old Voices
    But Don’t Know What To Say
    Take Them All Together
    They Wind Up Best This Way
    Take Them All Forever
    Immortality’s Here To Stay
    Waiting For The Winter
    To One Day Go Away
    You Appreciate The Summer
    Funny, Isn’t It I Say
    Let’s Drink The Wine Together
    It’s Ours And Ours To Drink
    And Soon The Cool Sweet Water
    The Best Drink, Don’t You Think
    Add To This A Lemon, A Little Absinthe To
    It’s Pale Yet So Refreshing
    Ooh, Here Comes A Dragon
    I Think He’ll Find It Quenching
    Drink It All Night Long
    We’ll Drink Them One And All
    Then Maybe Sing A Song
    Retire, Then Rest, Then Crawl
    Maybe Grow Some Fruit
    And Tend To The Placid Sheep
    Trip Over The Green Wormwood Root
    So We Can One Day Sleep
    People, Places, Memories
    Experiences Quite Unique
    Remember Them As Always
    For One Day We Will Meet…

    This is a poem I wrote called " Him"

    He changed me from the start
    made me who I am
    helped me to retain my footing
    When the devil grasped my hand
    He changed my wicked ways
    helped me to understand
    that when I feel alone
    I'll always have him

    He is my heart
    My soul
    My man
    He is my anchor to the ground
    and when I feel like breaking down
    He'll hold me up until the end

    Like Juilet and Romeo
    He'd follow me to hell
    He'll die if I do
    and live while I live
    That's how much we love.
    I wish others could understand.
    Each night I pray to god
    and beg god not to take him.
    This is how he means to me
    He's my everything.

[Hata Bildir]
