Mikey’s Poetry

Deep Down Friend

 

I sit for many hours calm as glass,

moments turn to days and pass.

Suddenly, a splash and then,

you lift soothing comfort up again.

Yes, so much spills as I rise up,

yet I quench your thirst and fill your cup.

I have more still and some returns,

to meet any raging fires that burn,

to add more hope with joy each day,

to keep your thirstful pangs away,

for I sit still for many long hours,

calm as glass, until you need my power.

There is no end, abundance dwells,

My deep down friend, I am your well.

Butterfly Love

I learned a lot about love by watching a butterfly. She fluttered in the breeze unaware of my eyes. Her wings seemed clumsy but she didn’t care. She blessed her flight in dignified air. She lit majestically, next to me. As if to prove, she could land with ease. Her colors grew against the sun. Her wings expanded one by one. She stayed awhile as if to say; my journey takes me far away. And suddenly, with ease and grace, she flew away up into space. I still sit amazed and watch the sky, because I learned much about love by watching a butterfly.

Prologue

Written for my 3 sons to document our many travels together …

What is so funny? goshdangit!?

Fawts are smelly things,
yet we laugh at the aroma that our own fawts bring,
what is so funny? goshdangit!?
It kind of makes me sad,
that we laugh at such a smell so bad.
It makes me yell, it makes me cuss,
that something could smell as bad as us.
Why are particles of poo so hilarious!?
as family and friends are upset with us?
Yet, I’m laughing at things unpure,
because at least the last one was my fawt-
and goshdangit -not yours!

Prologue

A song not yet recorded written for my favorite Peace Activist.

Peaceful Warrior
On an island lost in space / a peaceful warrior takes the stage / with some eyes focused / some unkind / hearts filled with hope / some are blind
This gentle agent knows her place / she is an angel born to wage /
a peaceful struggle of her time / hearts will listen / hearts will find
pre-chorus:
oh a gentle angel  / sail us away
oh a better angel / to a peaceful way
chorus:
oh – o – o – oh / angels come as peaceful warriors
oh – o – o – oh / angles teach us how to fly
listen up now / she restores us / to a yonder by and by
There was a man / he tilled the earth / His hopeful visions / grew in trees
He told his family / we shall eat / our future’s planted in the seeds
But only he could see the worth / of little plants among the weeds
He told his family don’t retreat / to an angel he now pleads
pre-chorus:
oh come near us angel  – dressed just as a dove
oh our peaceful warrior – teach us how to love
chorus:
oh – o – o – oh / angels come as peaceful warriors
oh – o – o – oh / angles teach us how to fly
listen up now / she restores us / to a yonder by and by
On the mountain of all time / God calls the weak to up from the line
My blessed children you are free / I sent my angels to the meek
The earth below him bleeds like wine / trampled / damaged by the swine
The angel warrior / now she weeps / for all who would not live in peace
(confounded bridge):
will we find her wings to rise / so high above the fray / we must not wait until we realize / peaceful warriors lead the way / so let’s fly / away / love will always / find a way / we dare not make / the angels cry / because we spent / another day / upon the ground  … / kicking the same ol’ things around /
We were born to fly-y–eey-i
come on and fly-y–eey-i
spread wings and fly-y–eey-i
let peace ring / within all hearts / join hands and sing / oh how we start
FULL STOP – acapella 
with the song of a peaceful warrior
pre-chorus:
oh gentle warrior –  we now sing
of our peace beneath your wings
chorus:
oh – o – o – oh / angels come as peaceful warriors
oh – o – o – oh / angels teach us how to fly
listen up / or you’ll destroy us / and in destruction wonder why
You did fly-y–eey-i
come on and fly-y–eey-i
spread wings and fly-y–eey-i
We’re born to fly-y–eey-i
Let’s just fly-y–eey-i
She helps us fly-y–eey-i
fade
