A god among Ants
A Beast to these boys
A Scourge to weak men
A threat to their ploys.
Hidden among the lines of Lies
hides the the real, the great surprise
That I am everywhere and no where
rarely heard but often seen
Carefully worded by the clubs and hearts behind the scenes
Note how I flow, keep count with my time
But ready or not its my time to Shine.
Some thump me as gospel others spout me as science
But I cross all bounds I form no alliance.
Some whisper in corners
Some shout there defiance
But even Popes know
When to say our pants are on fire.
Time and place are my binders.
Many claim to be my finders.
But most avoid me like race horses trapped behind blinders.
You know who I am.
And you know why I came.
But just like Debbie Allen
You will Remember my name.
Stuck on the highway
sitting in my Vibe
traffic got me late for work.
Going outta my mind,
I thought I’d be on time
but I guess that’s not the word.

If nature’s first green is gold and warm smiles are never cold and secrets are meant to hold then tears of the fallen you will behold.
If innocence is lost a day too late and bad times show up just after the break and laughter is the reason that you notice the hate then embrace the fame given by the fickle Ms. Fate.
Cus last night’s long gone and tomorrow’s just born but today is the day that we bounce to your Song.
So sing my lyoung Son and dance th rough the hurt cus Victory has spoken and consigned your worth. .
So Roar to the heavens and shout at the crowd cus the tears you shed now wipe the dirt from your brow.
Last piece of advice to give those still broken no hell is forever so keep walking ,keep going.
Time heals all and Coldplay cures ills but Green Lantern said it best. All you need is the Will.
So I am finally back updating my blog again. Sorry for the extended hiatus, but I started a new job recently and I have been pretty busy trying to settle in.
Now that it’s slowing down a little bit, I have more time to remember what makes me smile and not just what makes me think. Plus I just discovered the app version of WordPress, and that has pretty much given me a reason to update more often ie on the train.
I am still working on Book Three of Songs My Father Taught Me; Blood on The Throne; hopefully it will be out soon, as in before 2015. Lol.
I am also trying to squeeze in a couple other projects when my work schedule and life allow it. Thankfully got my creative mojo back.
Thanks to everyone who supported thus far and also those who choose to do so in the future. I Really do appreciate it.
PS. I will try to label the updates so you can tell the difference between Ramblings and poems and flash fictions.
So quick recap; especially since I had to look it up myself; Songs My Father Taught Me -Singles are story inspired flash fictions. Poems my Brother Wrote is self explanatory. Videos my Cousin Made will eventually have actual footage. And unlabeled is the stream of thought updates like this one.
So, if you like my stuff please feel free to contact me on Facebook or Twitter at Manny L Birch.

Happy Hump Day
