Drink more,
Water plants,
Feed seeds,
Eat more veggies

Seek Vital,
Squeeze lethal,
Choose wisely

Don’t you be so dumb,
Go find your freedom

Go Search the Kingdom
Don’t you get too high, Low down your ego
Slow down your horses,
Swallow now your pride

Shadow not the child,
Inside of your eyes

Inside of your Soul,
Fill in your cup

Feeling yourself,
Full of yourself, Fooling yourself

Fleeing yourself, Fearing yourself,
Fraying new ways, Prayin for days,
Curving hips, Hop of Faith

The steps you made, The lane you paved, The path you ran
Despite the pain
The Dream you draw,
The Wish you wrote,
The goal you got

Follow your Truth,
Flip of a coin, Flick of time,
Quickest changes always amaze
Colors not the same


Words from a wife to her husband
Words from a mother to her son
Words from a mother to her daughter that doesn’t really care
Words from a woman building her foyer
Words from a lady aware of her Woman’s Worth
Words from a Black woman eyeing her environment
Well aware of the damages

Caused by the lack of knowledge
On how to raise a real man out of a Black boy,
To grow better and Glow brighter


Broken glass, broken past, 
Broken women breaking free
Shades of silver, feeling blue, feeling grey
Silence is golden, but speech empowers
Blurry reflection of self-respect in the mirror
Becomes a sharp vision of truth and power
From the prison of Silence emerges a Prisoner of Hope and a Smile,
Natural Woman with a glowing soul.


A thousand roads, two thousand risks
Traveling the world always gets you rich
New encounters on the West Coast
No matter the weather nor the cost 
Whether you feel the best or the worst
Paving the way to success is priceless
Making carefree music, and feeling Weightless is worth it


Old Soul is Gold,
Never does it get old, 
Never would it even sound a bit of odd,
Relatable stories being told
By gentlemen in tuxedo
Singing with vocals as bright as Gold


“L’encre coule, le sang se répand, la feuille buvard
Absorbe l’émotion, sac d’images dans ma mémoire”
Si Demain C’est Loin, “Le temps qui passe” n’efface pas la beauté du verbe
Et les poètes de Masilia, “[avancent] forts de [leurs] expériences passées et [sourient]”
La satisfaction d’accomplir leur légendre, d’écrire leur saga.


Bienvenue à Bangaville,
Un monde imaginaire, idéalement décrit dans les poèmes d’une poète couchée sur le vert gazon, 
Regard loufoque louchant entre brindilles et autres brins de folie.
Bienvenue à Bangaville,
Le monde rêvé d’une poète fascinée par le déclin du soleil à l’horizon, 
Fascinée par le lever du même soleil au nouveau matin
Fascinée par son quotidien qui reflète ces mêmes mouvements du soleil, jour après jour,
Et jour après jour, un nouveau poème débute et se termine la nuit tombée.
Bienvenue à Bangaville,
Ville où les histoires glauques n’effacent pas l’âme d’enfant des habitants
Ville où les plus vils ne vivent guère longtemps, 
Ville où les filles s’affirment femmes, sont le futur et portent la culture.


Pluie d’étoiles bleutées au-dessus des yeux éblouis
La beauté d’un spectacle qui jamais ne tombera dans l’oubli
D’Istanbul à Vienne, un Blues familier chante-t-elle sur scène.


Born in the belly of a city
Great Boulevards and new avenues
All day Colored in grey and blue
Under the light of the moon
Under the lights in the hood
Winter nights, morning dews
Many peeps live in peace
Calm, collected
Girls be cool, boys be Smooth
Bad and boogie
Balling like the Chicago Bulls
Or singing along a Chicago Blues
Almost like they from Mississippi
Sippin juice,
Joy of the fruit of their labor
A bottle of wine do they handle

Chicago cheers Chicago weeps Chicago sleeps
Time now for smilin’
After the battle
After the hard knock life
After the grind and rise
After the rise and shine
The finest Urban landscape
Where thoughts find an escape
Words running on walls
Like sketches on a piece of paper
Chic Looking Calligraphy
Picture perfect of a place
Just as crazy as roller coaster go


Searching the truth through the blue of eyes So Easy To Love
Searching roots through the blur of Past Lives, 
Love searching by Midnight, riding Through the night
Riding to the lane where Memories Remain
Soul searching, praying “Oh Lord” when it rains,
Songwriting feels like a compilation of confession


Can we crawl and cry for pain
Can we stand tall and try again
Can we care for our feelings
Can we stop ignoring our tears and suffering
Stop chasing vanity, stop hiding the bright of our smiles

Can we stare at the broken (wo)man in the mirror
Reminisce happy thoughts, and live life in technicolor


Two Nights in a Man’s World got her thinking
Singing about what Lover does or what Lover Don’t to please her desires
Reminiscing how silly it feels to sink in the deep of love, in the deep of lust,
Praying Don’t Let Me Down and falling prey to loneliness, with a mist of sadness
Years after years tears dry on their own, yet Joy remains always.


They take old music
Then make gold music
We break it down, knowledge and wisdom
For the new generations to come
Food for thought, 
We cookin’ soul


Hardened heart hide unspoken secrets
In the thick of the mess, of the stress, 
Oppressive feelings can watch me, maybe catch me,
Snatch the rest of the little peace of me
Before shut off the lights
Be for me, in the cold night
Care for me, when I’m lonely 
Pray for me, when I’m bummy
Talk to me, when I’m needy


De l’inachevé à l’accompli
De l’esquisse au chef d’oeuvre
Glissent les courbes affirmées
Sur le pâle et vierge papier
Empli de couleurs jazz, fusion de mille lueurs
Teintes de chaleur et diverses nuances
Trois oiseaux évoluent vers de nouveaux horizons
Vers de nouvelles Perspectives.


De l’extravagance des vibrantes stimulations à couper le souffle
Au silence tonitruant des émotions soufflées en un soupir.
De la virulence des pulsions incontrôlées, malices en délire
A l’influence de sages pensées repenties, paix de l’âme sans artifice.
En apesanteur, tout semble sans Gravité, jusqu’aux premières Turbulences
Risibles amours et triste humour, toujours la haute Chute attend au détour.


Streching, yawning and moaning 
Aware and awake in the cold of the morning
Next to a future ex badly left with regret
Hourglass reflects time, and it’s too late to love.


Wandering lone in a city, as big as the world 
Running into individuals at the crossroads 
Remaining invisible at the crossroads
How could green lights and signs indicate the right way
To someone lost as a ghost with no cause
Looking everywhere for soul searching.


Love is in motion
Secrets kept until confession
Life devotion and unashamed emotions
Love is Alive and in motion.


These days nothing in life comes easy
In a daze, in a maze, everything gets hazy then leaves you dizzy
Heart as heavy as the gravity, epiphany needed for a bright dazzle
What used to be gloom and grey shall bloom with warm and beautiful colors


Instagram posts might be hiding the truth
Like cosmetic usually do for inner beauty
Actually femme fatale stuck inside mental box
Hermetically sealed but this close to open up for disclosure
And then discover this crystal clear picture of her self worth she’s never posted yet
Confusing self-conscious with self-confidence, like in a H.E.R.‘s song.


“Miscommunication leads to complication”
Deathly hush often worsens bad relations
Open-hearted conversation… even more often in option
No wonder the loss of connection


Des questions sans réponse attendent sur les bancs de l’école
Solutions sous silence hésitent sur le blanc de la feuille
Pression de la réussite, dépression précipitée
Récoltes de mauvaises notes, des heures de colle, et d’autres bricoles
Équation énoncée, problèmes trouvés puis à régler
Leçon de vie, nouvelle vie, enfin libre. 


Blue jean, white shirt, red rose
Poetic prose, and room for romance, 
Texting, in a mood for loving and sexual healing


Young Matthew Albert Guerrero
Man, just goes and grows up gold
Altered his ego for Nate Lesco
With the ambition to upgrade pro
Explores various sounds and colors
Moved by the will to kill it and kick it 
With his brand new improved skillset
Out here, grinds even when the sun sets


Awake to the morning new
When Sun awaits for the dawn to break
And clouds start to move like bubbles kids playfully blow
Black brothers and sisters gather round in the way
Sing the Blues like a few black birds that already flew away
Count their blessing and feed their children with delicacies 
Love and Wisdom, divine food for Soul.


The irony of the flowers and the bees
Flapping wings and stunning stings
Butterflies powder and blinding colors of love
Smell all like  illusory flavor in the air
For the sweetest may taste as bitter as ever right after


Waters around your self may make you feel safe
Waves of wealth or depths as scary as death
Better Come Back To Earth,
Allow yourself a second breath

For you to emerge and on the surface rebirth,
Better not swallow water right, but rather follow the beam of light
Time flows just like waters, flies faster than jets,
So let’s just keep on swimming and make up for lost time, keeping the eyes to the skies


Once upon a time
Homeless Girl be walkin around town
workin around fools she can’t shun
Too Many Folks that happen to be heartless as hurtful
And blindly paint a painful picture
Perhaps unaware perhaps unashamed
of her despair
Compared to others she cannot complain
She can’t express her distress nor the stress that weighs on her shoulders
Such a pitty to have her lack of power
Pretending to be strong
Standing up for too long
Homeless Girl wanna walk away
wanna find her way
wanna have her say
Sometimes like Joey
She would just sit and pray
Feel proud be loud
Imagining what it feels like
To act badass
To turn the back
And tell them “kiss my ass”
While a kick in the ass
Some are confirmed
To really deserve
But a kiss on the lips
With a grip of the hips
She admits to miss
Too many phonies actin funny around her fanny
Playing catfish so childish
How silly
How petty
How sorry
Though sorrow
Will not last tomorrow
Homeless Girl tough enough to fight and shine
To crawl and climb
To run and fly
The girl is fine
She got a smile
So wide and bright
Nothing could hide
Self love her first love
Dancing over
Self confidence
Feeling herself
With self respect

Finally the Girl found a Home for herself
Yeah finally the Girl found a Home
Swimming in a ocean of happy thoughts in motion
Surfing over waves of Blissful emotions
Finally the Girl found a Home


Ever been this close to find disclosure

About the one your wonder what colors paint her universe


Ain’t no tellin’ what you were called to do

Ain’t no fightin’ who you were called to be

Anything is for a purpose


Music by a young woman

Dedicated to young women

Introvert individual with explosive temper

Tables turn and lessons learned” on self-love and self-worth.


One more smile to give (just Pass It On)

One more song to sing (but it’s Just A Show)

One more word to say (with Moderation)

One more love to give and forgive (“I Love You, But…”)


One picture worth a thousand words

One visual worth a thousand songs

One simple message with several layers

One piece of art worth the whole History of a country.


His love for H.E.R came from the depth of his reckless heart

His love for H.E.R. might lead him to the death of his reckless life

Damned or blessed, depends on who you’re loyal to.


Forgotten history, forgotten legacy,

Facts of the past sure can influence our future

‘Fore they can face the truth, my people fades to black

Back against the wall, living in a world in war.

Ignorance the number one cause of death

Knowledge and faith the only wealth worth collecting

Culture saved from the shade, Black slaves finally free.


Méditer pour taire des pensées qui le moral n’ont de cessent d’enterrer,

Remords et tristesses décrits avec adresse et justesse, il chante tête lourde, cœur léger,

Sans la moindre tache de fausse note, fauché ou fortuné, jamais fâché de gagner son pain dans le son,

A la vitesse du son passe le temps, cependant n’efface guère son fier sourire aux lèvres.

Ecrit des proses dans sa soledad, des rimes sur fond de saudade, Cool et bien détendu reste le poète.


L’exacte même mélodie conte encore les souvenirs intactes d’une nuit passée en Tunisie

L’éclat de légendes jamais ne décline, et les âmes de Diz & Bird les âges défient.

Riche et vivace est le jazz, en constante évolution, de générations en générations.


Black power
Black wealth and worth
Black genius
Black confidence
Black independence
Black royalty. Queens and Kings
All about Black beauty
Sleeping in the belly of a city never too big for bigger Black dreamers
Black people and a beautiful picture made of a mixture of light and dark bodies and souls
Black liberation
Definition for The Blackest Joy


All Americans be #Dreaming

Praying, wishing and whispering a few shy words such as #ComeRescueMe during sleepless nights,

Black Americans dream of a better life #Blessed with #Love and health, the real wealth, despite the #Paperchase.

Meditation is a moment, and #Contemplation at the crack of dawn, #IssaVibe 

A vibe provided by Black music #AfricanAmericanMusicAppreciationMonth


Vie métropolitaine ou jungle urbaine

Un nouveau rythme habite son cœur

L’été et ses rêves de Brésil, de Colombie ou d’Ethiopie

Soupire des promesses de voyage, au fil de fugaces mélodies

… Vivaces souvenirs d’un apéro sous l’opéra.


Fly and free as the leaves of a tree that swing by the wind

She freely sings with style melodies that’d come out of her mind

Quite like a woke and singing bird, resting on the branch of a tree

Raw creativity, mind in bloom like a morning spring, she’s a Tree Woman.


Compte à rebours (Clock’s Ticking)

Avant le conte d’une nouvelle histoire à rebondissements.

Le conte d’une histoire d’amour qui connut son paroxysme et son abîme (Rise & Fall).

Le conte d’un groupe qui connaît un renouveau, et qui est fin prêt à décoller vers d’autres cieux (High On Life).


Sur la mer tanguent le rêve et l’espoir en proie aux vagues et aux troubles,

Destin plus propice aux eaux troublées qu’a l’Eden trouvé, Mer promise substituée à Terre promise,

Dans la langue de sa mère s’élève une prière, une voix qui toutefois ne perd foi.


Brown Girl silent in the room woudn’t say a word

But her staring brown eyes could tell a whole story, eyes being open windows for soul (Brown Eyed Soul)

Story of a grown woman fighting fears and insecurities (Athazagoraphobia)

Unashamed of the look of her face in the glass (Girl In The Mirror)

Proud, she sings out loud in the glass, happy to finally be (Leave Me Be)

Times be hard, like a cherry stone

Sweet life tastes sometimes, like a cherry flesh

Beautiful ends up to be the journey, like a cherry blossom tree.


Hagard regard égaré dans la lumière d’éphémères souvenirs heureux,

Des souvenirs d’évasion, et la vision d’un plus large horizon

Marie soupire après des rêves multicolores, plein la tête, colorés de mille paillettes.


Coeur de pierre, émotions de glace,
(Cold Little Heart)

Ce qui fut jadis amour est à présent haine
(Love & Hate)

Âme en peine et solitaire, en quête d’une âme soeur solidaire, ou pas.
(I’ll Never Love)

Perdure encore et toujours cette recherche du bonheur, pour au mal-être échapper,
(Rule The World)

Et au bien-être et à la quiétude accéder.
(Place I Belong)

Dans un monde Blanc, l’Homme Noir reposera peut-être en paix.
(Black Man In A White World)


Pockets full of dreams and the making of promises,

Life changes and everyday challenges,

Precious times with your precious ones,

The little things to remind you why you do what you do

Driven by dedication, love and passion.

Somebody said “Music is all we got”

But also do we know we got love (We Got It).


Black ink on a blank page, black thoughts on the same page

The drop of a tear, followed by the drop of a letter,

Words written in disbelief, words spoken with relief,

Life exposed in one line, lyrics to reflect the blushing face of the author

Life exposed in one verse, lyrics of an unapologetic author

Songwriting, a space for naked souls and pure poets

And poetry is an open door.


Women with Soul, women worth gold

Wrong men taken for soulmates, scary scenario getting old

Lies, and cries, when real men apologize, their wrongs they wanna right

So to the wife of their life, they write; a way to give them (poetic) justice.


Time flies and so does the plane.

High and far in the sky, aside of the brightest stars (of jazz)

In his mind, he keeps praising the most precious times spent with his loved-ones

In his mind, he keeps praying for that time he’ll be home again, with friends and family…

And you can read in the glaze of his eyes,

How much he’s looking forward to that Special Time.


Well it’s been a minute
Since I took the time
To pen a little rhyme
Out of my mind
In the thick of a mess
I guess
My stress I must confess
My thoughts, My words, My world
The worth of it all I doubt
Could it be worse?
Often did I think it is in vain
Often did I sink inside my pain
Woken up before rings the clock
In the cold of the morning
Forgotten beautiful fleeting dreams
Nothing more than a pile of dust
Spinnin’ around my lack of luck
Ducking behind a lack of trust
That’s the making of excuses
Value of Time’s Wasting

The young and the poor fantasize
When they both eye the wealth of the old
All they see is the fancy and gold
For sure: What you see is what you get
Though What you neglect is what you regret
Too many forget to pay the price
Before they can afford to get the prize
Too many fall by pride,
Just blame it on the blind kind
Too many times was I myself
this close to fail
And dive in it
Eyes closed, hands crossed

Value of Time I’m weighing
24 hours a day counting
Locked inside  a wheel of time
I am still chasing my dreams
Racing against time no more
Patience is key, realest metaphore
I’m 24 now and I’m waiting
For my hard work to pay off
For my faith to flame unashamed
Cannot shine before the grind
And I got a few partners in crime and a clan
Though like a lone wolf I’m walking
Solo moving in silence in the dead of night
Slow motion better than no motion

Well it’s been a minute
Since sleep I couldn’t find
Surrounded by walls of thoughts and words
If words ever carry life
And If these walls can talk
Then I guess I’m blessed to spend time
Giving life to my dreams
Life is like a freestyle
Life is rather like a blueprint
I’m a writer not a freestyler
Let me write again my blueprint
And let us stick to the plan… Amen.


Few things that I visualize
True things that I do realize
From my fears that I feed
To my fierce will of achieving everything
That I believe a man is meant to be
And I’ll be
Leaving, already on the next move
Before the leaves hanging on green trees
Fly then touch a ground become brown
Crumbling under my fleeting feet
Never ever can I settle down

Can I call the Forthcoming Fall
For Summertime made so many promises,
Prolly way too many to keep
In this place
Here I am
Ready to witness
Silly me maybe to keep trusting these
But each time still, this gets me,
Ain’t it crazy

I wake up,
Twice blink-blink my eyes
And I see,
Sitting all alone, and I analyze what I fantasize
And I try
But somehow cannot really seize the very true meaning of it all
I wonder
As I sound the deep of this mind of mine
Floating over overflowing thoughts

Feels like breathing under water
Feels like catching a fire with no burn
Feels like the flying feather of a falling bird
Feels like moving slow but still ahead of time
Feels like eating but for ever hungry
Feels like drinking and still of thirst dying
Feels like washing a skin remaining stinky

Until eureka, it all snaps
And appears clear
Cause the few things that I visualize
Are true things that I do realize

That is stronger than me
Can’t help it,
I feel it
In the depth of me
This should not be the death of me
For this feels like life to me
Can I live?


What if I told you that the world follows Eternal Laws,

Just like (My) Love,

Would you believe it, blindly? Or would you question it, deeply?

Like you sometimes question the flaws in your soul,

On the Search for a whole another new awakening.

The day you blossom new is the day you will feel free, and Natural,

Unashamed of exposing exploding colors in the face of people reacting « Unajali » (:we love)

For people reflect the light you do project.

Truthfully, blissful the one to fully feel In Bloom


Honey got the blues
Erykah Badu
She plays on and on
As she sings along

Sweetheart in his feels
Feeling bittersweet
Woke up in the night
Till the break of dawn

Both are losing touch
Eyes are dripping tears
While they’re craving grip
Slipping and tripping

Painful is the heart
Of the broken one
Painless is the soul
Of who’s broken free

Strangers on the way
“Watch, he’s all alone”
“Let me take you home”
Someone lends a hand

People so friendly
Feel like family

“Let him eat and drink”
“Most of it all sirs,
All I need right now
Is a good shower”

Feeling better now
Time to go to bed
Time is running slow
Thoughts are running fast

Only thing quicker:
Irony of life
Karma coming back
Or the will of God

Was this consequence
Was it just by chance
“I guess I’m just blessed”
Won’t you guess what’s next?

There she goes again
Lady Brings The Pain
Traumatize Your Brain
His mind is her game

And around she came
Like “I’m back in town”
What is going down”
Poppin in downtown

And I’m goin’ down
Pride and crown all down
She’s the kind of Queen
Any King has been dreaming all about
My Soul on the line
The Time of my life
“The Love Of my Life”
Erykah Badu
Just the same old song


(Short version)

Baby blooms in her belly
Baby booms in her belly
Baby boo, joyful mommy
Baby poo, smelly smelly
Baby’s food used to be good
If Bliss had a color, sure it would be baby blue
(Long version)

Baby blooms in her belly
Prolly  little lady
That is soon to be
Thinkin’ of what if she ever gets married
Whose name she would cherish and carry…
Mind blown by thoughts gettin silly
Baby booms in her belly tho
Maybe the kicks of a boy’s feet
“Blessed would I be if it is
The bliss I confess, the feels that I get”
Believin’ it to be the ideal,
Hopes and dreams all taken for real
Whispers and prayers of a soon to be father
Eager to raise a better man
than the bitter man that he became

Baby boo, joyful mommy
Baby grew up with a single lady
Who knew best how to act like a true daddy
Tho “family” was some kinda unfamiliar idea for baby

Now Baby poo, hmm smelly-smelly
Life ain’t so sweet!
Sometimes stinks like poo, and stings like a bee
Baby’s scared to found a new family
Baby’s worried to look like the one he fears to be
Baby’s smile shines so bright just like no one does
Baby’s lost his smile, lost his love, lost his trust

Baby’s food used to be good
Baby’s fed up: ” Baby, please!”
“Don’t baby me like you still breastfeedin me!
Sixteen already, and six feet tall, can’t tell me nothing”
Words that came from the mouth of a child
Who proudly thought it is cool to act tough and wild
This was nearly ten years ago

To what mommy had to go and reply
“I’ll beat your ass once for good
Before life beats your ass twice, and you’ll be good
Before you wish you were never born
Before you finally understand why you were born
Before you hold in your hands your own baby born
Before you mind the gap of generation
Before you recognize the cycles of History and rewrite your own History
Before you say goodbye and die, baby blue
Before you meet the Truth and live again, baby blue”
If Bliss had a color, sure it would be baby blue.


Here is Will Wood’s story:

On a beautiful and blessed day, he was born,
Shading his self under the leaves of his family tree, and,
“Originally meant to live a  miracle”.

As magic and poetic as should be,
He woke up in a world as chaotic as can be,
And he’s now progressing into a journey, rather an odyssey,
That won’t leave him the same.

Nostalgic of who he used to be,
He might suffer of forgetting his self,
He might want to find his self again,
He might manage to find his self again, well, kind of…

Among so many ifs and maybes,
The only certainties are that Will is rising his consciousness in quest of his true self
Escaping a (hallucinatory) reality
And ripping off false identities he might have made of himself,
As he stares in his mirror,
Will would create his own truths to acknowledge who he’s outta be,

‘That is God to [him]’.
Being who you are, unapologetically,
And the simple fact to just Be,
Whatever the environnent and its influences,
Whatever the time and space:
This, is goddish.


From Paris with Love, they stand there to resist the inevitable,

Their heart as warm as the burning Southern Sun that they keep dreaming of, like Icarus used to,

They walk to the path leading to less excess in a world dry as a desert,

Looking for more access to purity, the new idea of success and glory.

Future may look gloomy, but “there will be sunshine, though the forecast is grey.”


Life goes on and Time, free as a bird, flies by so fast, you cannot catch the present moment

Everything is on a movement, mindset, living, love, and you can’t take anything for granted

Excepted maybe the Freedom you feel, when you let yourself go along some sweet music

Dancing making you feel alive again.


There she stands, over there she looks, she woke up this morning, fully feeling alive,

Curious to know how the wind blows and if Tomorrow shall ever keep all its promises,

Lessons of the past and prayers for the future, she lives better when she enjoys her present time,

Even though she’s walking in the thick of the mist, she believes nothing is impossible,

Or rather, she believes it’s impossible not to make it to the end.


Sky’s the limit, they say

Love is boundless, she says

In her dreams, she’s Been To The Moon,

And her face is as bright as the stars in her stare.

She feels right when she dances wild and sings out loud,

And people who find a reflect in her Soul end up as loud and proud:

That’s how you get right.

She is Stelle Amor, stellar singer-songwriter and blazing performer from Nashville.


She had a purpose and a straight vision of where she wanted to get

Yet, the path that leads to a true fulfillment, her achievement, isn’t so straight and snakes,

Walking on and on, to the light of Lightning Bugs, like a Wandering Soul that Can’t Sleep at night

This would not shake her determination, this could not knock her hustle, she got too much Soul.

Dedicated, she steps and finesses, despite a path made of Crooked Lines.

She’s Rebekah Todd, and she made it through her odyssey to release her new album!


She dives in a pool full of love, lost to the illusion of a beautiful dream,

Sleeps in an ocean of salty memories, that go back and forth in the back of her mind like tide and waves.

Wakes up in a bathtub full of tears with a leak of love, lone and weak

She lays and wonders if she’ll ever bloom again from her wounds

And finds the answer in a dogwood still Standing;

She still believes in Love.

She is Melody Federer, and she incarnates freedom when it comes to feelings and emotion.


As Boston green trees are raining Autumn Leaves

She flies and leaves for a white winter wonderland, Sweden.

Here she is now, in Stockholm, a place she calls home,

A home for herself and her creativity, recording her debut album and studying Jazz.

Her name is Jessica Curran, and it’s safe to say her voice deserves the listen.


Long lone walk along narrow mental walls

Prisoner of thoughts and unanswered questions

In hope for responses, in prey for hesitation

Self-blaming overcoming self-confidence

Standing here and there, crazy how your doubts have you dance.

Major key to set free from this mental prison is believing and trusting yourself.


Bright as the moonlight when it rises,

Warmer than the moonlight when it shines,

Goes down quicker than the sun does at night

Amazes when lit, yet never warns of its blaze

Started out with an ignition, ended up with a desolation

The fire two people make can turn the awe into the woe,

And Caroline Lazar, raised in Atlanta, based in Miami, just learnt how to start a fire,

Metaphorically speaking about her dazed and confused emotions.


Wouldn’t it be great if silly fears were to disappear?

Wouldn’t it be great if people’s woes were to become awes?

Wouldn’t it be great if the rain could wash away your tears and pain?

Wouldn’t it be great if we were to live all merry and leave all worries?

Wouldn’t it be great to simply rise our voice and rejoice?

These are a lot of questions, and we might not have all the answers

Unless we let ourselves go into the Merideth Grace Puckett’s Perfect World.


And when I step
into the lobby
See my face
And holla at me
I’m not too hot
For you to hold me
Truth is that
I’m feeling so blessed
Why is that
Some of you may ask
Number one
Woke up this morning
Number two

Just keep the faith
Believe in fate
I cultivate
What motivates
To do things great
I sing ‘How Great’
And contemplate
Food in my plate
I close my eyes, “Amazing grace”

Fool is who
Miracles cannot recognize

Let Me get to my point Number Three
Cause I can count here real good homies
Not only there for fancy ladies,
Cray-crazy ladies or hot crazy parties,
But truly there right for thee and right for me
Never do they fail to feel your pain
And fill you with power
When you lack of power,
Feeling wack and weak
And about to weep
Before you sleep
Slipping all depressed
Into mad sadness
Dreaming of nightmares
And success
A concept you and I kept running
For nights and days,
Dazed and confused
Like in Pursuit for Happyness

I Remember the days
When they kept my head up
Family member to me
They felt like
These brand new contacts
They have  big impacts
In your daily life
Lucky me to testify.

And when I step
into the lobby
See my face
And holla at me
I’m not too hot
For you to hold me
Truth is that
I’m feeling so blessed
Why is that
You already know why.


Couldn’t tell my rights not even my wrongs

So I penned the shy rhymes of mines, all alone

Inspired for a few poems soon to be songs

Questions all about what’s going on

Marvin Gaye’s anthem to sing along

While mainly concerned about wisdom

Unlike the merely conscious ones

Considered to be the only ones

That naive younger ones

Are told to look up to on and on,

And on; a new generation

A miseducation

 And the same stories go on

Time flies by

Earth turns round

An old cycle driving psycho

Every White, Yellow, Black and Brown people

My people, your people, our people


Once upon a time

Not too long ago

I used to switch on my TV

Looking for superheroes

But there were no found heroes

Not even relevant shows

So what did I do?

I switched off my tiny TV

Walked down to the city

Right in These Streets

Checking out the ones that I call friends

Going out and shaking hands

You know

Respectable men and worthy women

Parenting and raising children

The next generation

Givin em life lessons

Before they’re grown up

And waste the time of their life

Loosing sight on what is right

Over useless does

Dirty vices Bad advices

Hypnotized until reality comes and surprises

Nightmares happen to come true

I guess we need to wake up to some new

The real world with a real worth before it gets real worse

Believe me I think we should revise our purpose

Cause we’ve been playing this losing-game

For ever too long

How about we rewind in time

In the past to correct our mistakes

Rewrite our history

Taking responsibilities

So one day maybe we can get back our dignity

Come on with me

Let us set up a new path

So we can step right to the best part of the promised land.


Tourner la page

Est parfois plus sage

Car la Terre elle, Continue de tourner

Mais leur monde Ne tourne plus rond

Chaque jour  Une nouvelle histoire

S’écrit dans ses mémoires

Les leçons du passé

Helas outre passées

Toutes oubliées

L’histoire se répète

Et ne vaut plus la peine  D’être encore lue

En continu

Assez… chaque jour Suffit sa peine

Mais j’ai peine à croire Que demain déjà

Sera bel et bien Un nouveau jour Sous le soleil

“Rien de nouveau Sous le soleil”

Comme il est coutume de dire

La nuit nous portera conseil

Chandelle en cire

Encre noire et plume

Sous la pleine lune

Avec toutefois La foi en un meilleur lendemain

Par trois fois je tape des mains

Au moment où cette prière prend fin

Apaisé d’un calme divin

Le réveil s’accompagne d’un refrain

Qui vent puis revient

Et s’entonne avec entrain

Nouvelle aube ce matin

Espérons que le reste se passera bien.


As I was

Walking up in these streets

Did I find fine backstreet artists:

They would band, to bang the blank walls

With colors brighter

Than the flash of

The city spotlights;

My hood never looked so cool,

Either right at noon

Or in the dead of night

When it’s cold as ice

And not too nice

To step outside.

I was thrilled, I was chilling

Been watching their paintings

Pinpoiting the meaning

That my dearest elders

Define as a lifestyle

Where Life is a freestyle

As free as a butterfly;

Call it Da #HipHop style.

Man, I’m a huge fan

Wouldn’t even tell a lie

And I swear I feel like

These backstreet artists

Could be quite good old friends of mine.


Life is like a freestyle

You never know what’ll be the next rhyme

But you always hope to get back in line

Alright and right on time.


Sometimes I smoke and blow my pain
Metaphorically through vain rhymes that I’ve tried to pen
It actually happens more often than I would ever confess it
And you ain’t gotta believe it Nor even to hear it
Go and ignore it if you will
So that I won’t need
To hide anymore my feelings
Cause damn I feel so ill
On top of a hill, long staring at the bottom
And I’m scared of the sight
I wouldn’t tell a lie.

Somebody told me once that I was bright
And that I was gon’ be alright
Words that brought to me so much light
My eyes would’ve gone blind
Yet instead it inspired my state of mind
And gave me an answer to the question “Who Am I?”
And gave me a brighter vision and a better sight
And made me realize
How much a written or spoken word can heal the wounds of somebody’s life.

Marcus Drumming Poet


Extrait N.8
Quand un enfant regarde le ciel par la lucarne de sa fenêtre, il rêve du meilleur des mondes et s’imagine une belle vie

Mais l’enfant refuse de grandir, il a peur d’affronter la vie
Un adulte voit cet enfant, et se rappelle les premières années de sa vie

Tel un homme qui voit dans son miroir, et y contemple le reflet de ses regrets et succès qui l’ont conduit à mener la vie qu’il vit

Quand une femme prend son miroir et décide de couper ses longs cheveux, elle prend un nouveau départ dans sa vie

Mais cet homme ne supporte plus sa vue dans son miroir, autant qu’il ne supporte plus sa vie

Quand cet homme demeure tête baissée bras croisés, sous la douche, il médite sur son passé, camouffle ses larmes, et se lave des erreurs de sa vie

Quand il sort de cette douche, c’est un homme propre et soigné qui se sent bien dans ses chaussures et est prêt à affronter la vie

La vie est sa bataille, la balle est dans son camp,

Quand bien même il sait que la mort l’attend à l’autre bout du champ,

Il reste campé sur ses positions, et entonne heureux un dernier chant

Qui peut-être inspirera l’enfant qui s’imagine une belle vie à apprendre les paroles de ce chant.


Spreading two weak wings

To catch one second wind

Might lead you for the win

Then help you to believe in

Some of the things you were up to give in.

These ones observing you evolving and flying

Over the landscape of the comfort zone you used to sleep in

Will notice how much waking up to a dream come true is mind-blowing.

Poetically yours.


Extrait N°7 Du Soir, Bonsoir:
Aigris, j’écris ce qui décrit au plus précis
Mon ressenti vis-à-vis de cette amie que j’évite
En dépit de ses invitations multiples à son domicile.
Éprise de ma timide personne, elle me fixe à maintes reprises.
Pris dans les filets d’une séductrice, cette fille au talent d’actrice
Maîtrise l’art d’expliciter un désir et simuler son plaisir.
Tentatrice aux subtiles techniques, peu docile, fille facile, à irriter,
L’angélique di-ablesse, tantôt ludique, tant sadique,
A tout appris de l’art de faire souffrir
Celui qui ne sait la chérir selon ses envies.
C’est une artiste lorsqu’il s’agit de lui fragiliser l’esprit.
À plusieurs reprises la dite “Lady” a-t-il tenté de quitter.
Son pitch a-t-il récité timidement:
“Mille excuses, Milady
Mais de vous à moi, ça risque de ne plus être possible”.
La sachant susceptible et imprévisible,
Il imagine le pire et se dit qu’il vaut mieux ne rien dire.
Intriguée, la diva finit par le deviner,
Maligne, elle tire un sourire ironique
Puis finit par rire tout en s’écriant ceci:
” Mon petit, on ne quitte pas si facilement
Celle qui ta vie peut rendre l’envers du Paradis ;
Bel-Ami, je t’en prie, appelle-moi Lucie Ferre !”
– Marcus Drumming Poet –


Extrait N°6 du jour, Bonjour:
Vous ne me connaissez pas
Mais je me connais
Et j’ai peur de me reconnaître
Dans le miroir des actions
Reflétant la contradiction de mes pensées.
Insensé, je fais face à des choses
Que je comprends sans comprendre.
Pardonnez l’expression mais tout cela me laisse con.
Confus, je sombre dans une noire réflexion.
Abandonné à moi-même, je tente
De discerner les couleurs et les nuances
D’un environnement complexe à dépeindre…
Une myriade de préoccupations
Sur mon esprit fait pression.
De mille milliers de mots une énumération
Sur chacun de ces mots, un million d’interrogations:
“Une famille” “son fils, sa fille” ;
“Cette fille, ma femme” “l’ami, l’amant”
” Amer” “sa mère, son père”
J’en perds tous mes repères.
Qui ment dit vrai
Et frêle illusion
Accouche de réelles désillusions
Je me couche tard et me lève tôt…
Il est possible que je pense trop.
– Marcus Drumming Poet –


Extrait N°5 du soir, Bonsoir :
Tandis qu’il s’engage dans ce travail
Qui sa routine dessine et à la lassitude le destine
Je choisis de m’engager dans une carrière
Pour le dessein duquel je trace mon destin.
Tandis qu’il s’engage dans ce travail
Qui chaque matin de son sommeil le tire
Je conserve et préserve ce rêve peut-être prémonitoire à mon éveil
Qui m’émerveille et m’inspire.
Tandis qu’il s’engage dans ce travail
Qui son bien-être trouble et sa santé travaille
Vaillamment je brave ma vigoureuse dépression ;
Pesante pression sur mon épaule droite…
Je manque d’un bras droit pour m’épauler.
Lui et son travail, s’habituent à un confort devenu inconfortable,
Moi pour ma carrière, me tue à la tâche tâchant d’achever ce pourquoi
Ma lampe de chevet demeure allumée chaque nuitée
Jusques à quatre heures et quatre minutes du matin.
Là réside la différence entre un travail et une carrière :
Selon la vision et l’ambition, “marche arrière”
Sont deux mots à jamais interdits du vocabulaire…
Ceci dit, la contrepartie est comme suit:
Si le suiveur succombe à la lassitude,
Le leader, lui, tombe dans la solitude.
Heureux et comblé, celui qui parvient à la plénitude,
Début de sa béatitude.
– Marcus Drumming Poet –


Extrait N°4, du jour, Bonjour:
“Onirique mystère
Apparitions brèves mais claires
Sans trêves se répétèrent
La nuit dernière et la nuit d’avant-hier.
Sans pouvoir guère y déchiffrer
Les caractères distinctement gravés
Sur la face cachée d’une pierre elle-même cachée
Au fond d’une rivière humide de secrets bien gardés
Que l’on ne tarde d’oublier.
Ce n’est point à l’aube mais bien au crépuscule
Qu’à mon habitude je me lève, perplexe, et déambule
Dans une bulle qui de subtilités pullule.
Hanté par le sens de ces rêves, je suis crédule
À toute hypothèse que l’on me suggère
Avec ce sentiment cependant qu’il n’y a rien à faire :
Jamais n’éluderai-je cet onirique mystère”

– Marcus Drumming Poet –


Extrait N°3 du Soir :
“Pas le temps pour la frime
Peu de place pour ses rimrs
Il broie du noir, dos au placard, il a le cafard.
Hier soir, sa fiancée s’est fait la malle, lui a fait du mal
Puis l’effaça de sa mémoire.
Dos au mur, la douleur dure, demeure et l’abat ;
Innocence pure, troublée par la rancœur d’un coeur qui bat
Le tempo crescendo du naïf amoureux
Embrassant le chemin du natif haineux.
Vers vous son regard, embrasant
Pour vous son égard, inexistant.
Sa passion, écrasante
Sa compassion, bien absente…
L’absinthe de son amer souffrance la tête lui tourne sans cesse
Infernales tourmentés, cet obscur spiritueux tient de son ivresse
Tristesse, détresse, et paresse
D’imaginer à nouveau l’idéale déesse
Créatrices des plus belles tendresses jamais rêvées, jamais désirées…
Mais désirs tant éprouvés, blessés par tant de bassesse
” Et c’en est assez” se dit-il.
Son amour, origine d’une éclatante cécité
Sa haine, origine d’une rayonnante clarté
Son pardon, origine d’une espérée liberté
Son âme, en quête de tranquillité
Son esprit en quête de légèreté
Son corps, pour la beauté
… Ses rimes, son havre de paix
À bon port dérivera le poète.”

– Marcus Drumming Poet –


Extrait du soir N°2 :

Chatoillant, doux et apaisant ombrage,
Abris prisé des petits hommes au bâtons de pluie
Dont le puits de sagesse ne s’épuise jamais
De rafraichir les consciences des enfants devenus grands
De rafraichir les esprits des passants ayant pris racine
Si longtemps que les feuilles de leur jeunesse allaient flétrir
Ayant flirté avec la première fleur rencontrée
Sur le chemin de leur vieillesse en pleine floraison
Sur le chemin de leur vieillesse en pleine dépression
Sur le chemin de leur jeunesse en pleine guérison.”

– Marcus Drumming Poet –


Extrait N°1 Du Soir, Bonsoir
“Dans le blanc de ses yeux pouvait-on lire avec clarté
Les fines et sinueuses lignes qui dessinent sa vérité.
Persuadé d’en dépeindre une fidèle réalité
C’est de fait l’éclatant reflet de sa cécité
Qu’il projette à la face des ignorants aveuglés
Curieux d’avancer dans l’obscurité”

 – Marcus Drumming Poet –


Looking for light in the dark

Can a smiling face be a lying face?

Irony is laughing hard, I hear

Deep in the heart lies the truth

In my mind read the answer

Click pause and rewind,

Indeed you heard what you thought you heard

Didn’t hurt yet

Until that drip-drop noise out of your eyes

Little did you know, shall you blow your nose

Looking for light in the dark

Just like me, you put a smile on your face

A smile lay on your face all day

Everyday cries your heart, I can hear it

Every night the same prayers in your mind, I can read them

Click pause and rewind

Still looking for lyrics that rhyme with Happiness

To put an end to this never-ending Sadness

Before Summertime follows up Springtime


Just Chillin’
Smile upon my face
Mama in my mind
Faith in my heart
Music in my mouth
Little money in my big hands
Ambitious on a mission
Eyes raised up high towards my vision
Counting My Blessings
My blessings left, my blessings up next


Bleeding Passion

Painful Impression

Blazing Face

Facing Blessings

Mercy Testifying

Crying Smile

Popping Heart

Hopping Hips

We Try To Stay Blessed


When days turn fast to dark night
When nights last without moonlight
When sun looks like too long to shine yet
Desperately dreaming of the heat in the morning
My skin never seems to feel
Hit by the nightly wind of my illusions, cold as ice
Waking me up to the world of my disillusions, raining sky,
Leading me to a shelter of questions without answers
Answers endlessly expected like the dawn in an endless dark night
Fears appear to be hard to fight and,
Hope looks like too long to shine yet and,
What’s life without hope? And,
What’s worse than living hopeless?
Maybe leaving your Faith…


Visualizing things while the Music keeps playing
Like having hallucinations under the drug of Imagination
Voicing words before realizing their true meaning
Shaping a sharp reality you’d either forever anticipate
Yet if the dream doesn’t come true, its desperate expectation gets you through of it
And you’re voicing words faking their true meaning
Shaping that ideal you regret, hardly able to respect the reflection of your face
Ashamed in the mirror of the glass, exposing your mistakes and
The best that you still underestimate.
… Listen again, watch again, think again
What you hear is what you believe, what you see is what you get:
So is the poetry of this life.


Acuestado por el suelo, suele soñar de ese sueño lo que desaperece cuando aparecen esos primeros rayos del sol,

Y eso le deja un otro sentimiento poético


Reading someone whose blood is is his pen
And whose lines might be as precious as antic scribes’
Listening to something that allows my soul to vibe
Out of my body a part of my heart beats again,
Healing that whole bleeding pain
Receiving cure instead of curse is a blessing, of course
Never-ending feeling of life, tasting like honey
Better sweet than bittersweet


Sitting on the bay waving to the leaving boat
sipping a bittersweet drink that I shouldn’t have bought
seeing my friend, my relative, my partner going away as this boat flows on its way
my feelings now taste just like that drink:
I should let it go, I would, if I could,
Truth is I just can’t let it go, #OhLawd


“If You’re Not Making Someone Else’s Life Better

You’re Wasting Your Time” – Will Smith.

So, it’s been over one year that musicians, singers, songwriters, artists,
All as many as the stars in the sky,
All aspiring to be the next Music Stars and to testify if really Sky’s The Limit,
Have showed some love back, have let their emotions out,
Having read the Sounds So Beautiful’s reviews, which are, as poetical as possible
Written to support their work and spread the word of their lyrical songs and music projects.
If discovering music is the main aim of this blog,
Discovering and feeling the artists’ emotions is the most delightful by far.
Sharing these moments of happiness
Should be as inspiring as sharing someone’s art and music through one powerful live performance.
This is my turn to tell you “Thank You”.

– Feel The Vibe –


La vie est comme un recueil de poèmes
Tous les vers ne riment pas ensemble,
Et s’ils riment, certains riment pauvre, d’autres riment riche, et d’autres encore ne riment que suffisant


I wish I were a happy daydreamer to who everything seems alright

So to my nightly nightmares, the sun would bring more light.

I wish I were awake in a world that my heroes used to dream of

So my hopes wouldn’t fall so easily when comes the earthquake shaking off

And reviving a pain that never felt so real, alas…

I wish I rose like a red rose upon a fresh and green grass

So I could stand my ground, not ashamed of exposing my exploding colors, exhaling the smell of a beautiful confidence.

I wish I saw myself as a champion

So I would realize every single scene from the play of my imagination

My imagination, actually my vision, I wish I entrusted more

So in this freezing cold winter, the heat of a faith would keep me warm for ever more

With that Fire that Faith can make.

I wish you had that faith too

So you’d fell less helpless and put some more hope in your dreams and you

Just Like I should do


I’ve always been staring at Stars, like they were higher than Sky itself

They, always down upon me were looking, reminding me how tiny am I and shall I be

But I ain’t upset, as dreams from the dead of night lead my eyes on the way to one shining sunset

Enlighting my life with a new dawn, a new day, a new dare

The dare to always reach the Skyline itself and looking down on Stars staring at me


“Got too deep in the deep”, emerging from your waters you need to wake up to reality.

Her everyday life used to be defined in the love she used to find

Into the one that used to make her feel naked

She’d like to keep on swimming in a hypnotic illusion,

Stuck in a painful dream.

The music she wants to listen to, may suddenly stop;

Deep silence playing instead,

While another kind of music is playing somewhere else.

Shouldn’t she be so naive

Fortunately a shy light may shine bright

Getting out from a torturous hypnosis

Waking up to the true reality in which it feels good to swim endlessly.


In every story, one character evolves.

Just like a seed into a virgin field

That happens to grow up on a ground less and less green,

And, fed and warmed up by his passions shining like a sunrise

The brillant character, into numerous experiences gets involved.


What you need is what you forget
What you see is what you neglect
Respect is what you expect
What you seed is what you get
Regret is what your face reflects


Music is her fruit she gives you with her sweet voice

Dancing shall be the shape of her fruit

And beauty the essence of such a juicy fruit.


When Music is on, “the worst” sounds like the best in the world

When Beauty shows off, one gets stuck in a kind of illusion

When Dancing is on the move, Music masters your soul
Infatuated with a Beauty that is making you a fool,

But, in your and ears and mind, this sounds so beautiful.


His “Reason Why” came along
This season when people get on
Too easily to stay too long.
Happened not too long ago though;
All was going perfect though:
“Big balling homies, chilling with my dawgs!”
Was what he was screaming out loud
“The Love Of My Life” the Erykah Badu’s song
She was singing out loud.
Their eyes crossed and suddenly stopped:
“Hey sista how you doin’?”
By a simple and shy smile replying,
Magic seemed to be happening
Matter fact, tragic was occurring.


Either the dancer swinging unwillingly to the rythme of an uncertain system beating your life up,
Either a light soul, free as the wind, feeling life… If so, the human that you are dances on his own rythme, moving with harmony.


Feeling sad, feeling bad
Headphones on, playlist loading.
Alone in the highway, alone everyday, alone anyway.
Music moving, from ears to heart
Healing the hurts, cleaning the dirt,
Dancing moves follow, this feelin though
Putting this smile on the face,


Music is taking you high
You feel like flying
Your mind as light and free as birds
You’re reaching the skyline.


Expressing yourself is an obvious sign of humankind

Dancing is an obvious sign of expressing yourself.

Either the playlist goes slow or fast

Either you go up or down
As long music plays, life goes on anyway.


It’s evocating a mood at the time
It’s what I crave, kind of a sensation of lust
It’s what unchains my spirits
It’s perspires all my own inspiration
It’s make me feel as light as it is itself
It’s my soulmate, it’s the instrument of my bliss, of my happiness. For once, it’s not the drums nor the piano nor the trumpet nor the violin but… the acoustic guitar.
