DIRTY WORDSTER

SHEEP

WE ARE SHEEP

WE GRAZE AND BRAISE

WE TURN OUR NOSE, UP AND AWAY

WE FOLLOW THE HERD

IT’S SLIGHTLY ABSURD

HOW WE LOOK THE SAME

FEEL THE SAME

WALK THE SAME

BLAME THE SAME

OUR SHEEPNESS’ IS ACUTE

WE DON’T TALK, WE’RE MUTE

WE SLEEP IN THE SUN

AND SNORE IN THE DARK

WE FEED OF THE EARTH

AND LICK THE DRY DIRT

WE ARE LED TO THE WATER

WE GET FAT AND FED

AND THEN WE ARE LED TO THE SLAUGHTER

LIFE’S NOT TOO SERIOUS

OUR FEELINGS AREN’T TOO DEEP

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT

WE’RE ALL JUST SHEEP

connection

I have no recollection

of our pure connection

It’s hard to grasp the bliss that’s passed

Like free souls who lost all control

we slip through the cracks and refuse to look back

when it’s lost, it’s gone, with no return

don’t ask for it, don’t whisper prayers

we once had wings but now we’re slayers

change is the bitter blackness that sucks us in

to spit us out with our heads in a spin

when it’ over you will stare at your reflection

crying

i have no recollection of our beautiful connection

SORRYNESS

I’m sorry for making you cry

I’m sorry for the big wet tear in your eye

I’m sorry for my dirty words

For the flailing arms, just coz I know it hurts

I’m sorry for my demands

Reprimands

And heavy commands

You are my weakness so I throw you my strength

I never gave in, I’d never relent

I’m sorry for my attempted demise

It was not wise and I remember the fear in your eyes

My love made you cower

I ruled you with power

I never said sorry

But forever,

You’re my precious

My lover

My flower.

TIME TO FLY

I think its time to fly
Fasten the rope and take the dive
Feel the air in the sky
This time its just me, myself and I
Close your eyes and pray aloud
Feel the pressure rise from the ground
You can’t stop so keep going
Feel the peace growing and growing
In a while it may all be over
Sitting in your chair
With silver streaked hair
Remember the day you took that dive
Remember when it was your time to fly

(annie raman)

TURMOIL THAT STINKS

 You feel the day,

A troubling breeze, pass away

The pace of hours, minutes, seconds

Travel at a speed, your attention beckons

The blur of dust from the rolling day

Remember the moments you keep away

The turmoil of time that ticks in your ear

The stench of the day wont disappear

It wont last, this day they say

so take a breath, just rest, just lay.

This turmoil it stinks!

Now it’s over, it’s gone

with a sigh of relief he thinks.

WORLD AT YOUR FEET

The world is at your feet
But you have nowhere to go
No exact path or particular flow
The limit is the sky
We know we can’t fly
Standing on the ground
Staring all around
Begging your way to be found
Don’t crawl in the darkness
Just stroll in sunlight
Lift up those feet, now hold on tight
Don’t rest in the shade of another’s glory, make your point,
build your own story.
I tell you the struggle will follow
But when the world is at your feet
That’s your hope for tomorrow.

SHALL WE DANCE

Shall we dance? Make a lil romance?
Don’t fall on your face, this aint no race!
Lets just dance and make a lil romance.

THE CAKE

I had a cake that took me back. took me back in time

to the great divine, the swingers mind, the cravers  find.

The soft crumbleness, my delirious interest,

the licks i invest in this sweet caress.

Hail to the cake that took me back in time.

Took me back to a time thats now my tasty remind.

SOME DARK

I poses the thoughts of a mortal mind.

Nothing but breath and sigh and time.

Everything stands between me and the end.

not to be saved by no mother, no Lover, no friend.

Struggle to peer through the dark unknown, the days and the surprise of the future I own.

Pondering…i feel numb, no stress, no knowing, no fear.

The mind does secretly whisper, ‘Hello death…are you near?’
