"Oh! Mon Commandant"

Sometimes, I sit and think in a chair
To myself I say, with a blank stare
"Mankind has made life unfair"
"Wake up world!" I often dare
War & hate lives in a deadly pair
love, respect & unity becomes rare
Do you even care?

Why must the good die young?
The cancer was maybe too strong
A man's soul laughter I shall missed
A man's warm gaze I shall missed
A man's deep voice I shall missed
My own pet name "Oh! Commandant" will be missed
Mankind's pollution & stressful demands
Won a battle, with the departing of this fine spirit
But have yet to be called victorious in this war

Where ever you may be, Pepe, job well done!
May you rest in eternal peace!

PS: Keep the smile fresh!
PS: Keep shinning a light in order to improving our lives

One love ;)

August 23

You're beautiful, beautiful soul,
beautiful mind, beautiful spirit,
beautiful giggle, all that is true.

There must be an angel
With a smile on her face
When she thought up
that I should be with you,

However, it's time to face the truth
I will never be with you.

"I did my best
But I guess my best wasn't good enough
'Cause here we are back where we were before
Seems nothing ever changes
We're back to being strangers
Wondering if we oughta stay
Or head on out the door

Just once can't we figure out what we keep doing wrong
Why we never last for very long
What are we doing wrong
Just once can't we find a way to finally make it right
Make the magic last for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
I know we could break through it

I gave my all
But I think my all may have been too much
'Cause Lord knows we're not getting anywhere
Seems we're always blowing whatever we got going
And seems at times with all we've got
We haven't got a prayer

Just once I want to let go
Be happy and hope one day
understand why this magic never did last ;) "

You are not your profession

The most disturbing information I've read this past week was to learn of Anita Baker's marriage to Mr. Walter Bridgforth Jr. on Christmas Eve 1988 and as of October 2007 they were finalising their divorce.

Mind blowing! Who marries the queen of love songs and then files for divorce? You would think with such award winning catalogue of love lyrics, soulful voice, passion for music and two kids that they would find a blueprint or common ground for their relationship to last a life time. Does anyone unite for better or for worst anymore? Guess you can say: "Can't judge a book (relationship) by its cover (assets)".

May they find peace and future love!

Music in my soul

If tomorrow is judgment day
And I'm standing on the front line
And the Lord asks me what I did with my life
I will say:

  1. Dared myself to try
  2. Lived up to my childhood dreams
  3. Was the best man I could be
  4. Had a positive mindset from dusk 'till dawn
  5. Gave thanks and praises to films, food and women
  6. Helped a fellow brother/sister on my path
  7. Laugh at myself, my mistakes and my life
  8. Never gave up trying
  9. Remained humble, honest, respectful and kind
  10. Understood and improved the man in the mirror
  11. Cheered for the underdog all the way
  12. Collected condom wrappers
  13. Fought for justice, simplicity and equality
  14. Waited patiently for love
  15. Graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks
  16. Turned a penny into a dollar by the sweat of my brow
  17. Loved life each day like my last
  18. Kept a smile in my pocket to keep me moving forward
  19. Believed in myself and the possibilities in the impossible
  20. Fought fears, tears, time, my scattered mind and procrastination
  21. Kept faith in "what if God exist..."
  22. Kept my ears attached to the sweet music of my heart beat

'Cause the music of my heart beat is my greatest love
And this love is endless
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us

If I lose my fame and fortune
And I'm homeless on the street
And I'm sleeping in Grand Central Station
It's okay 'cause I'll have my memories, a MacBook Pro, a BlackBerry and an Ipod

As the years they pass us by
We stay young through each other's eyes
And no matter how old I get
It's okay as long as I can still wine at carnival

If I should die this very day
Don't cry, 'cause on Earth I wasn't meant to stay
And no matter what the people say
I'll still be smiling after the judgment day.

You know it ;)
