Another old one I found that is not on this blog yet…..

A mask I fabricate, a façade I create
Cuz I know, no matter how hard you try, you can’t penetrate
Impermeable barrier I raise, can’t see through the haze
An identity not my own is the image I portray
A simple minded man, another member of the band
If that’s what you see, better get a vision plan
Don’t believe the lies, don’t look with your eyes
Listen to the heart before you choose to decide

Sarcasm is a weapon, words are my ammunition
To battle people breaking through my façade creation
I contrive and deceive my loved ones around me
Leave me alone, man, just let me be
Some bits of clarity, rise from the unconscious mind
A hole in my defense, tired from the daily grind
Few whispers of truth slip from my lips
Catch them while you can, don’t let them slip

Actions speak louder than words, so yall better listen
I’m a man of few words and that is the reason
My behavior contradicts this façade I’ve created
Led others to believe my whole life was consecrated
But deep beneath it all, my soul’s dark and mad twisted
Tainted by past wounds not yet reconciliated
So like the old saying goes, listen before you speak
Maybe you’ll understand what makes my heart beat

So please unbuckle that mask, let some air in
I know it’s going to hurt when the mask peels off your skin
But I know this to be true, and I think you do too
This is the first step in being the real you
Appearance is overrated, like a cassette is outdated
Your beauty comes from your true soul illuminated
So let your light shine whether you’re here or away
Cuz the true source of light is none other than Yahweh

Your deception and lies, all I hear are your cries
Cries for help from Him, whose faith you compromised
It’s all an illusion, your own chaos creation
It’s so thick, you got lost in your own confusion
I promise you this, speak in honesty and truth
God will set you free from the sins that hinder you
Words are instruments of love, tools to glorify Him
Just remember one thing, purity comes from within

So people, hear me, when I speak these words please
Be who you are, who God made you to be
If actions don’t express the convictions of the soul
Might as well be dead, buried in a hole
A life full of passion is your heaven sent mission
To love people around you, aka the great commission
So let motives of your actions be righteous intentions
One full of hope, peace and holy devotion

Hi… My Name is Dave

Waiting Patiently

The admiration of beauty from long distance
Is injustice to the heart, emotional disturbance
Cuz in that instance, when you eyes catch her glimpse
Internal turbulence is the story of my existence

The expression of love in its invisible state
Is torture to the soul, a twisted fate
Can’t compensate, her beauty you can’t duplicate
Butterflies it creates, accelerates the heart rate

My mind in chaos, but my spirit waits patiently
For that one chance, hope for opportunity
Maybe one day we’ll see, you and me in harmony
The story of we, real life serendipity

Until that moment comes, my feelings I will delay
Even when I see you, your beauty walking my way
I hope and I pray, somehow that I may
Stare into your eyes and say, “Been looking forward to this day.”

“Hi, my name is Dave.”

Just a note: I know “Transformating” is not a real word… it just sounded better =P


We all got it. Whether it’s evident or not.
We find many devious ways to avoid getting caught
Find comfort in the darkness, fight to shun the light
Devour sinful cravings til our spiritual pants get too tight

We all do it. Put on a spiritual masquerade
Actors and actresses playing holy characters we made
Lights camera action, the set is false reality
We get so good, we win Oscars from the Academy

Hate to admit it, this is the reality of the situation
We live in a world full of lies and deception
Misrepresentation of the manifestation of sin
Creates a generation with a false idea of Him

Be exposed to it, to the lies sin has created
Life covered in darkness Satan has complicated
Recognition of the truth comes at a great expense
Vulnerability is the price of personal acceptance

Face up to it, before it consumes your life whole
Hidden secrets are like cancer, deadly to the soul
Honest confession leads to divine intervention
Without grace and compassion there can be no restoration

Have faith in it, God and His graceful sovereignty
All your sins made clean, He is Transformating Purity
His mercy you will feel, before Him you shall kneel
All your wound and scars, with His blood thou shall be healed

Tick tock tick tock, time goes by too slow
ain’t got nuthin’ to do, cept work on my flow
Surfin’ the web, chatting with people on gmail
If the internet went down.. man, major FAIL!

Thank God for Facebook, at least I have somethin to do
Reading articles on ESPN helps a lot too
Online shopping is curse and a huge benefit
I’ve found so many good deals on

Today I feel like i’m wasting my life away
When I could be at home playing NBA2K
I guess it’s worth it, sitting here getting paid
But I feel like my inner youth is startin’ to fade

Is this really me? Is this who I’ve become
Joyless day after day, my heart’s becoming numb
Maybe I’ll leave early, but I need a lie to tell
“Work is too stressful…..” puahahaha! LOL!

Maybe it’s time for a change, time to move on
Need to find a passion before my motivation is gone
The main question is, what to do with my life
The answer is hard like cutting metal with a knife

New Style….

I feel like all my stuff sound the same. I need to start investigating other styles.

Any suggestions/references??

My Individuality


I will never be the man that people want me to be
Please do not place your misguided expectations on me
Cuz you see, I will never allow myself to be
A puppet controlled by the powers of society

I will not let myself be tempted by the comparison game
My identity based on status or the title in my name
I do not care from which university you came
I will not get caught up in this lame struggle for fame

I’d rather choose to fight for my individuality
I’m uniquely and wonderfully make in God’s creativity
Societal pressures will never get the best of me
God’s approval is the only thing that defines my identity

How do I cope with the temptation and the pain?
Like any other fight, in spiritual discipline I must train
Have faith in the fact, in my place the Lord was slain
Alpha and Omega, in my life will you reign

I Hope I Go Blind…

I think I need glasses. My vision is getting worse
My visual attention tempted by world’s greatest curse
I can’t seem to focus on the important things in life
Sin has ruptured my nerves, my system’s in strife

My life is getting blurry, afraid of the outcome
I need clarity of sight to see what my life will become
What do I do if I can’t see the path to truth
Logical mental facility, I need evidential proof

Always found comfort in knowing where my life was headed
But now I’m entering the abyss, my chaotic thoughts initiated
What if I fall, stumble into the unknown
Life whithering away, buried beneath broken stones

Blindness is something to be feared, crippling to the soul
but God tells us that He is in ultimate control
Reluctance takes hold, as you press auto navigate
Close your eyes and let go, to Him let it gravitate

Do not fear it, for my plan for you is perfect
Don’t underestimate the power of the Almighty Majestic
Open my horizon God, let your thoughts be mine
Thank you Lord for making me spiritually blind
