The Next Level Poem

Updated on August 27, 2013

If I were an Artist...I'd Try to mix my "Manly" Poem words with Music...and Art...Wonder what would Happen?

HHHHMMMM...!? Let's See What Happens...

                                                                                                                

                                                                                                                         

 

Daniel Band-I'm Sorry

Read Poetry, Listen to the Music, and See Some Art Work... At The Same Time...If You Can Handle It ! (Try Cranking the Music A Little Loud!)

The Scream

                                                                                                         

I Screamed because I arrived here ...and I didn't see you...

I commenced my attack on life...and looked around for something else to do!

I hit rock bottom and mashed my poor lil' head...

I got back up...and beat the crap out of that rock bottom...till it was dead!

I laughed when no one did...I cried when no one saw...

I showed up today...like every day...And I was still standing tall!

My life runs through my veins...

My thoughts, My Hopes...And ALL My Pains...!

I came to the fork in the road...and sat for a minute there in the grass...

Then...I got up and walked the road I chose...and told the other one to "Kiss My _ss!"

Daniel Band-Walk on the Water

Ready...For Another One?

It's Under Control...

                                                                                                   

Think...Think...Think...Work Real Hard...

Mind Your Own Business...Stay In Your Own Front Yard!

You have all the Answers...You Got it Figured out...

You Say You Can't Listen To This...That's What I'm Talking About!

Find A World Around You...Let It Take You In...

Get Mad 'Cause You've Been Offended...Someone Mentioned Sin.

Drop on the Floor...Kick and Scream...All Day...

Why Do You Think You Know So Much...Any Way?

You Have No Control When You Were Born...Or Even Your Next Breath...

Keep It Simple...You're Here For a Reason...Too Much Thinking Bores Me to Death!

    Dohn: Thank you, my friend! Thank you for the comment...and the congrats...Really glad you enjoyed this little mix for the senses. These songs were once very much a part of my everyday music...and I was looking for a way to bring them back...into my life...through Art and Poems. Big Thanks to "YouTube" for being a media (though they don't need a thanks from lil' ol' me!) source where folks can place all kinds of stuff that interests them on it...and put it out there for the world! Best of Regards to you, Dohn...as always, MPM

    I liked the drawings ! ...And I liked the poems when I put the music off ! lol

    When a sculptor creates a statue he doesn't add more clay...he takes away a little at a time, some from the head and some from the body, until he reaches the inner soul that was lurking there all the time...You have given us an amazing panoply of Art, Music, and prose...My senses are sated...Thank you, my friend...Larry
