The Right To Lose

Poem By KMC Centlivre

The cold wind blows like Christmastime
The icy chill goes to your bones
If heaven had a plan, it didn’t include you
When you got a right to lose

Your stomach growls from hunger pangs
Your tattered smile looks confused
If heaven don’t allow no more sufferin’ than you choose
Who gave you the right to lose?

Sunny weather looks far away
Better days a memory
Didn’t plan to be alone for such a while
Funny what happens to dreams

You’re beautiful, but no one knows
What’s left of you is all that shows
If heaven would just smile and take away these blues
And take away this right to lose

Who gave you the right to lose?

I hate the weather
I hate the cold
I hate the empty dusty roads
I hate the trees without no leaves

Johnny went to Hollywood
Said he’s gonna be a star
Things didn’t turn out so good
Johnny’s livin’ in his car

Love Thy Neighbor

Jesus said a lot of things, Mohammed said them, too
Moses went to the mountaintop, Dr. King did, too
But, no one really listened to them
Instead they put their pictures on the wall

Worst Mistake

I made the worst mistake of my life
I ignored all the warnin’ signs
I made a hard left when I shoulda turned right
And made the worst mistake of my life

Space People

Have you heard of the people who live in the skies?
(I think I seen ‘em)
Some of them are short with big round black eyes
(I never seen them)

Same Ol' Things Happen Over And Over

Here you come again breaking my heart again
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if I could live without it
I’d look the other way but, that won’t change yesterday
Wouldn’t feel so bad about it if you didn’t brag about it
