Set Backs

Set backs
Create comebacks
Come backs
Create peace
Lessons learned along the way
GOD’S grace
Shall never cease

We lost someone
Rebellious son
The “Lizard King”
The “Backdoor Man”
Young Dionysus
The Poet one
He saw his Shaman
Throughout his days
Drunken haze
Unbridled ways
Age 27
I’m still amazed
Such art
Beyond imagination
Warned to tame his art
Ground breaking
Bleeding heart
He never compromised
His fans adoring eyes
“They want something sacred”
His music “broke on through”
Ghost dance trance
Spiritual advance
Single feather
Circular motion
“Soft Parade” notion
Finale derived
“No one here gets out alive”
In the end
A candle flickers out
Thus the world
Lives without
As their hope passes on
I leave you with my thoughts now
So you may understand
Because I can
I’ve ALWAYS been a word man
I’ve ALWAYS been a word man

Wherever He leads me.
If I flow it Will you read it? Will you feel it As I bleed it? Because you see I need it To justify my trip My words A pointed tip Dipped in sacred blood Precursor To the coming flood A gift from God My KING A beautiful thing To serve His higher cause I'm not seeking vain applause Simply Clarity For this lost world to see His grace Sweet charity Unconditional love And peace My ultimate release SELAH…….
