Same:Difference

Everyday is different

Everyday the same

Everyday my difference

Others seek to blame

One day I may falter

One day standing tall

One day this will alter

Barriers can fall

Everyone is special

Everyone unique

Everyone has questions

Answers that we seek

We can make a difference

We are much the same

We ensure that different

Isn’t cause for shame

Being

In being only his I am myself

Not sharing makes this specialty unique

I saw a man and stepped down from shelf

He answers all the questions that I seek

In being only him he is divine

Simplicity and strength within his smile

Imperfect yet we fit when we combine

I want this to continue for a while

In being only what we’re born to be

We bring such happiness upon our heads

And others disapprove or disagree

But why are they concerned about our beds

In being only human we’re the same

And love is not a source of guilt and shame

Dirty Money

Hello mister welcome to my city and my land

Want to go to college but my family is poor

Can you help me I will love you anything you want

You can even do that but it costs a little more

Sorry but I think you chose the wrong man for your scheme

You just want my money and you think I’ll pay for love

Let’s just say my eyes are open wide and now won’t shut

Pushy men whose empty hugging feels more like a shove

Understand that you are poor and I must look so rich

Culture difference maybe and I know that I am old

Cash for sex is dirty money I refuse to pay

You are not that pretty boy if I can be so bold

Money boys you’ll never know the ugliness I see

Lusting for the dollar but you never look at me

Youth

I see you standing there

You want to scratch an itch

But do not look to me

For I won’t queer your pitch

This game is not for me

Too big a fish for fry

I know you’re curious

But I’m not good to try

So pick a younger fruit

And taste a sweeter dish

For I am bitter now

And I won’t grant your wish

So find a better man

To lose yourself within

For I am far to old

To be where you begin

Equally

Do not follow me for I am lost

Lean on someone else because I’m weak

Made decisions never counting cost

I don’t have the answers that you seek

Walk with me but let that be a choice

Take a step or two here by my side

You like me within you have a voice

Shine the light you’re hiding deep inside

Maybe I can follow you instead

For a while I can just let it go

I have never let myself be led

Proud in my stupidity I know

Then he turned and took my breath away

Told me that he knew a different way

Did I think two men could ever be

Independent yet cooperate

Building partnership where both are free

Living in a single happy state

Nobody need shoulder all the blame

Sharing joy and hardships two as one

Different men whose views are much the same

Love and care when all is said and done

Live by codes that we ourselves create

Be outside the box yet not alone

Try with me I’m looking for a mate

Make utopia and call it home

Yes I said and saw that in his eyes

Both of us were equally surprised

Out on the Street

The street I do not walk because of you

I’ve found a very different way to home

And if I never face you I can be

Secure along the newer paths I roam

For now I only see you in my dreams

Those nightmares disappear into the dawn

Reality is brighter than the sun

And from my mind the deed it has been torn

Just recently I almost walked your way

I paused and took a different path instead

I wonder if I’ll ever pass your door

Without the drying mouth of fear and dread

Your bitter can not sour what is sweet

For fear cannot beat pride out on the street

Serpent

The promise of the fruit I've yet to taste
Temptation knows it hangs beyond my reach
And when it's ripe I'd savour without haste
For Eve an apple, I would take the peach
Perfection I can see you from afar
Yet I will never clamber up the tree
For all I want is to be where you are
But it's unlikely you will fall for me
Forbidden fruit so easy to desire
Reality is made of rougher skin
So I pretend my plane is flying higher
My thought as deed would no doubt be a sin
When Eden's bounty falls upon the earth
The serpent knows my honour and its worth
