IMMERSED

IMMERSED

A rock and a hard place
Drunk with reasons and regrets
Lost without a trace
I delivered but was driven to debt
Was it a whirlwind of my efforts
that blew the intended fruits away?
A brown area and spot
an indignation of how my merriness is kept at bay

The shadow of who I was
The vision of who I choose to be
The music I opt to compose
To rely on the overlying success tree
My soul grinds the the sand

I feel their negative presence
but I’m stuck to my resilience
I beg the recognition of my sophistication
and the cease of my uncertainty
I’m already involved in a determination cruise-ship
I’m part of the crew but i choose to steer the wheel to my destiny
Through the direction of the Almighty
to stamp on the black aura
Indeed, the strategic pattern on my hand
I came, I saw, I conquered
The leads to a perfect chorus

PEN AND PAPER POINT!

PEN AND PAPER POINT!

So its valentines again and all the ladies be posing like ‘ man u know the drill’, and it has to be a surprise gate-away to an exotic parlor with an aisle of roses and candle lit dinner. Oh and I forgot to mention a surprise band of exquisite vocals that set the mood right (Bear in mind this is what am wishing for right now-but i will have to burst my bubble). A spontaneous expensive gift would also serve the purpose as you caress it in disbelief while awakening your conscience with chilled magnolia wine. Ladies, we expect men to do the likes, which is fair to say because it is an established status quo. Right about now some men are almost switching of their mobile phones strategizing how they will be MIA for the night because of ‘important reports in the office’ which might sometimes be translated to watching football games with the boys with the same mindset-skiving the day of love. Ladies, my point is may be this time round we need to work on our magic to be sensual puppeteers of these men of ours. Its time to plan and not to expect. Probably not expecting might give us a surprise, double the castles we have created in our minds…but oh well am just saying. Anyway, this edition of Pen and Paper point is for all the good men out there, those who know how to treat ladies…yea sometimes it is hard to believe but they are there. Destiny Child’s Cater to You is one of the best intimate, compassionate and sensual songs that inspire romantic relationships. Ladies when i said plan, I meant enticement, service, submission, built connection, LOVE!. Make that man smile this time round. Having been well performed by the ravishing American trio, the songwriters of the track are the three: Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland, Michele Williams and Ricky Lewis, Rodney Jerkins and Robert Waller. The writers of the song put into perspective a woman’s desire to please a man…it is quite clear. So happy valentines beautiful people and with my love I avail to you the lyrics below. Ps: Try not to kiss and tell *hides*

CATER TO YOU BY DESTINY’S CHILD
Baby, I see you working hard
I want to let you know I’m proud
Let you know that I admire what you do
Don’t know if I need to reassure you
My life would be purposeless without you

If I want it
(You got it)
When I ask you
(You provide it)

You inspire me to be better
You challenge me for the better
Sit back and let me pour out my love letter

Let me help you take off your shoes
Untie your shoe strings, take off your cufflinks
Do you wanna eat boo? Let me feed you
Let me run your bathwater, whatever you desire, I’ll aspire

Sing you a song, turn the game on
I’ll brush your hair, help you put your do-rag on
Want a foot-rub? You want a manicure?
Baby, I’m yours, I want to cater to you, boy

Let me cater to you
‘Cause baby, this is your day
Do anything for my man
Baby you blow me away

I’ve got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I want to cater to you

Inspire me from the heart
Can’t nothing tear us apart
You’re all I want in a man
I put my life in your hands

I’ve got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I wanna cater to you

Baby, I’m happy you’re home
Let me hold you in my arms
I just wanna take the stress away from you

Making sure I’m doing my part
Boy, is there something you need me to do?

If you want it
(I got it)
Say the word
(And I’ll try it)

I know whatever I’m not fulfilling
Another woman is willing
I’m gonna fulfill your mind, body and spirit

I promise ya, I’ll keep myself up
Remain the same chick, you fell in love with
I’ll keep it tight, I’ll keep my figure right
I’ll keep my hair fixed, keep rocking the hottest outfits

When you come home late tap me on my shoulder, I’ll roll over
Baby I heard you, I’m here to serve you
If it’s love you need, to give it is my joy
All I wanna do, is cater to you boy

Let me cater to you
‘Cause baby, this is your day
Do anything for my man
Baby you blow me away

I’ve got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I want to cater to you

Inspire me from the heart
Can’t nothing tear us apart
You’re all I want in a man
I put my life in your hands

I’ve got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I wanna cater to you

I wanna give you my breath, my strength, will to be there
That’s the least I can do, let me cater to you
Through the good, the bad, the ups and the downs
I’ll still be here for you, let me cater to you
‘Cause you’re beautiful, I love the way you are
Fulfill your every desire, your wish is my command
I wanna cater to my man

Your heart so pure, your love shines through
The darkness we’ll get through
So much of me is you
I wanna cater to my man

Let me cater to you
‘Cause baby, this is your day
Do anything for my man
Baby you blow me away

I’ve got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I want to cater to you

Inspire me from the heart
Can’t nothing tear us apart
You’re all I want in a man
I put my life in your hands

I’ve got your slippers, your dinner
Your dessert and so much more
Anything you want, I wanna cater to you

WHISPERS OF A WITNESS

WHISPERS OF A WITNESS

The mind and heart in a persisting altercation

Trapped in an indecisive convulsion

Smelling the coffee at my awakened image

I pursue the knowledge of an emotional espionage

That strikes the posts of the truth

And brands the lies as uncouth

So that I can stride to my long awaited destination

So that I can sail through the remoteness of a desired convention

Of thoughts and ambitions of diminished impossibilities

Tickets and tithes of humilities

Is what is left of this drunken soul

It needs not a convoy of fake promises as I recall

But the hands of times that greets its resilience

I envision my spiritual mortality in deep silence

As my mind revolts in the battle with a snare of false hope

And the retaliation of the heart, encapsulated in a bow of atonement and sacrifice drops

The fight ends with my emotional unavailability

Unpublicized entity

ATTITUDINAL VARIATION

ATTITUDINAL VARIATION

Sparkling stars parade the sky

Desire to fly and pry

Pry on the reason behind the epic constellation

See if it terminates myriads of questions

If it matches the conspiracy of cruel intentions

Then maybe i could hasten my steps towards the end of the tunnel

Because assurance will have befallen my identity channel

To realize the relevance of impediments motivating my zeal

Impact of the clock’s clicks

Heart pounding, mind roving from past to present pricks

Pressure darting from all corners

Speeding for my attention in all manners

But i fail because of my entrenched regrets and mistakes

Spinning in wonderland and grappling with all it takes

To paint a picture of clarity on top of the darkness that abides

With the possibility of a breakthrough, my uncertainity for the future coincides

It is easy to whistle and to cough

But when the heart bleeds, only the brave manage to laugh

Breakdown of resilience slows me down

Complicated noises and unnecessary sound

A judge of my future

An advocate of my past

A victim of the present

A case lost
