Entrepreneurship



I had a dream to change the world
One mind at a time
To create opportunities for a generation
That asks for a mentor and a friend
But you, you make it impossible
With your excessive loopholes
Misguided regulations and pessimistic attitude
You’ve created a parade of administrators
That spend their days dreaming up ways
To make opportunities impossible
You deny the creative and suppress the driven
New ideas are demolished and critiqued until
They’ve been re-spun into the same old tunic
That you’ve worn since you started in 1918. 
Let me teach.
Let me help my students.
Let me give them job opportunities.
Stop halting progress while preaching innovation,
Step aside and let me do my job.

Let Faith Provide



New hope sets my heart apace
To fall in love in this space
Putting vulnerabilities aside
As two hearts collide
Let faith provide
A righteous pathway for His will
In this life.

Friend Zone



Common already, show your cards,
Hedging the bet, but I’m a solid play,
Intelligent and kind,
I can be one of the guys,
but I still clean up nice,
Conversation is deep and I make you laugh,
I’m not flawless but I’m a great catch,

So why the radio silence?
Whyyyy the radio silence?

Why are you still wasting time,
Dating around?
You know the friend zone
Isn’t how this is going down!

Not to sound arrogant,
But why am I single?
A girl should know her worth,
And I’m a ruby with a martyrs heart,
So stop holding back and lay it out,
Make your move already,
Show me hopes not wasted,
When did we end at friends?

So why the radio silence?
Whyyyy the radio silence?

Why are you wasting time,
Dating around?
You know the friend zone
Isn’t how this is going down!

Grace bound, face down

Who wouldn’t want to ride the wind
With the girl who has it all
Oh, when I go in, I give it my all.
So of course you had to fall
Of course you had to fall.

Was it my fault
Was I not supposed to lure you in?
Jokes on me
You were a wolf in sheep’s skin

Another innocent face calls to me
But I won’t be there seething
I won’t live in your daydream
You see, I’ve found me.
I’ve found me.

No more shame drives this train,
My passion is right at the surface
But its grace bound

And I’m facedown.

Whatever

I'm not writing this song because I want you back
Or because I'm mad
You came in with your sweet words
Acted like you'd ride the wind
To catch my love
So I gave it with reckless abandon
As cheap as grocery wine
You threw me away like bailing twine.

Don't worry, I forgive you 
Don't worry, I forgive you 

I guess it's whatever
I thought you were forever
It's better off never
I'm glad we're not together

Overwhelmed by your fake devotion
I sank like a ship into your ocean
Hanging on every word you sent
Drowning in the flames when you went
That bitter pill was all I buried
When I found out you got married.

Don't worry, I forgive you 
Don't worry, I forgive you 

I guess it's whatever
I thought you were forever
It's better off never
I'm glad we're not together

I guess it's whatever
I thought you were forever
It's better off never
I'm glad we're not together

I've forgotten the pain of the fall
No one notices the scars at all
After all I kept my composure
And I've got my closure
Don't worry, I forgive you 
Don't worry, I forgive you

Musings and Bad Poetry

CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD
What if you could share your burden with me?
What if I could identify what that was?
Let’s go back to the root of what takes my words away
And rewrite history.
You can have every memory,
Every word that changed my mind,
Let’s alter that reality,
Write a novel of a different kind.

Take these belief systems that misguide me,
Erase them with your love.
Restore the foundations of who
You made me to be,
Let’s drift away in a melody,
Like birds on the breeze,
I can sway with you,
If you’ll stay with me.

PHOENIX
You can have the elements,
Wispy pieces of smoldering drafts,
Engulfed in blue fire,
Destruction is her rebirth,
Rising from the ashes,
Shape this argillaceous earth,
Let her rise, let her rise.

SEASONS
Just when the sticky heat here suffocates me,
The trees reduce to golden wisps,
As soon as their nakedness is born,
The harsh slap of winter wakes me from my dream,
Reminding me not to settle too long,
But I want this to be home. 
You want me to roll along,
But I’m tired of running.
This rolling stone is sitting here,
They say change is coming,
But I say bring on the storm.

BITTER WATER
I’ve determined the only thing left to do is eat the sprinkles in my tea.
You can sit there and smile or you can judge me,
But the water here is bitter if you don’t add some spice.

Fairytales

I don't believe in fairy tales,
Every relationship I've had has failed,
Once I'm all in, they all jump ship.

You, you never lead me astray,
Protecting me in every way,
I lean against you and breathe,
My redeemer you release me.

Let me dance, let me sing,
Let me give you everything,
Let me dance, let me sing,
Let me give you everything.

In times of crisis,
You draw me near,
You soothe my cries,
and calm my fears,
Nothing formed against me,
Can hurt me.

You, you never lead me astray,
Protecting me in every way,
I lean against you and breathe,
My redeemer you release me.

Let me dance, let me sing,
Let me give you everything,
Let me dance, let me sing,
Let me give you everything.


Doubts

I got fears in my heart and they won’t go,
Doubts in my head and they won’t go,
I got fears in my heart and they won’t go,
Doubts in my head and they won’t go.

Don’t you know you’re worthy,
Just the way that you are,
Don’t you feel ashamed,
You’re perfect just as you are,
So sing it from the heart,
Sing it from the heart,
You were perfect and wonderfully made,
From the start,
A beautiful creation,
You were made faithful and smart,

I got fears in my heart and they won’t go
Doubts in my head and they won’t go
I got fears in my heart and they won’t go,
Doubts in my head and they won’t go.

Where there is fear,
There is no room for God’s love,
So open your heart
and receive blessings from above.

I got fears in my heart and they won’t go
Doubts in my head and they won’t go
I got fears in my heart and they won’t go,
Doubts in my head and they won’t go.
I got fears in my heart and they won’t go
Doubts in my head and they won’t go
I got fears in my heart and they won’t go,
Doubts in my head and they won’t go.

Revelation Song

Let me write you a revelation song,
I’ll sing it to you all day long,
And your people will arise,
Come out to meet Him tonight,
Oh, Lord’s people, it’s time, it’s time.

Take his word, take it down,
Lift Him up, spread him around,
I want to burn for you,
I want to yearn for you,
All my life, all my life.

Lawless Love



I just wanted that perfect picturesque life,
So I let myself get destroyed,
Chasing an illusion of being a wife,
What was supposed to destroy me,
You’ve used for your glory,
And the pain that once tore at me,

It was a lawless love,
That tore me up,
and left me on the floor,
But you came in and gave
me life again,
So I could become more.

It was a lawless love,
That tore me up,
and left me on the floor,
But you came in and gave
me life again,
So I could become more.

I turn to you and hold on tight,
No more terrors in the night,
You are the greatest love I’ve ever known
I turn to you and watch the horrors go.

My formerly lawless love,
Left debris and turmoil,
I was a love sick monstrosity,
When you came in and welcomed me
And the pain that once tore at me...

It was a lawless love,
That tore me up,
and left me on the floor,
But you came in and gave
me life again,
So I could become more. 

It was a lawless love,
That tore me up,
and left me on the floor,
But you came in and gave
me life again,
So I could become more.

You whispered strength and purity,
Into my spirit and set me free
From my own frightful devices
The parts of me that leaned on
Lustful yearning and misplaced respect
Have been turned to you
For a love that gives and protects

This romance has blown away
All pre-conceived notions
I’ll never find anything sweeter
Than His divine devotion.
And the pain that once tore at me...

It was a lawless love,
That tore me up,
and left me on the floor,
But you came in and gave
me life again,
So I could become more.

It was a lawless love,
That tore me up,
and left me on the floor,
But you came in and gave
me life again,
So I could become more.
