Making the Grades

Making the Grades

Converting knowledge into numbers…
graded, debated, degraded and rated,
are the highest numbers a sign of the best?
This reality of education is the true test.

Converting knowledge into numbers…
justified, quantified, analyzed and relied,
do the charts and graphs illustrate trends?
How can knowledge be measured in the end?

Don’t Let Her Down

Don’t Let Her Down

(Instrumental introduction)
(Chorus)
Don’t let her down, boy,
Like you did before, yeah.
Don’t let her down, boy,
You can make it up, yeah.
Don’t let her down, boy,
You got another chance, yeah,
Don’t let her down, boy,
Or she will leave and won’t
Bother to be around.
Don’t let her down, boy.

I’ve known her a long time,
Since she was just a child,
And now she’s grown up,
And she’s a little wild.
She knows what she likes,
And I think she likes you,
But if you don’t treat her
Right, you’ll be the fool
Who asks,” What did I say?”
As she turns her head and
Silently walks away.
You had an argument,
Which really is just a test
To see how you two will
Get along during the rest
Of your time together.

(Chorus)
Don’t let her down, boy,
Like you did before, yeah.
Don’t let her down, boy,
You can make it up, yeah.
Don’t let her down, boy,
You got another chance, yeah,
Don’t let her down, boy,
Or she will leave and won’t
Bother to be around.
Don’t let her down, boy.
(Instrumental bridge)
(Chorus)
Don’t let her down, boy,
Like you did before, yeah.
Don’t let her down, boy,
You can make it up, yeah.
Don’t let her down, boy,
You got another chance, yeah,
Don’t let her down, boy,
Or she will leave and won’t
Bother to be around.
Don’t let her down, boy.

I should be with you

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

I should be with you

You hope things are going to stay the way they are.
It has been my experience change is natural, by far.
Not only houses and cars, but people change, too.
If you consider what I have said, I should be with you.

Make a Sand Castle

Make a Sand Castle

What can you do now to help
bring peace to this world?
You can smile a while, instead of frown.
That brings people down.
Become part of the community instead
of a couch potato watching
those events on TV.
When someone truly needs help, give
them a hand, and see where they land.
From one small seed the gift will grow,
and others will learn how much love will show
even more how much better this place can be.
There will be those who will attack this philosophy,
but killing, violence and hatred only brings death,
destruction and loss of personal property.
Donation requests come in the mail daily,
and you say you don’t have enough money,
since you have enough just to survive
or get through the week.
Investigate before you invest in a charity,
since giving to all good ones is an impossibility.
Know that the answer to an argument is
not a bullet from a gun, and after the
embers of anger cool down, the damage
cannot be undone. Holes are left the walls
of people’s lives who are shattered,
who then suffer in the present.
People are not that much different,
though some see separate colors or gender.
The world would be much better if all
lives matter and we could get along.
Drugs, legal or illegal, are not an
escape from reality, and their abuse spreads
like a cancer to bring other problems
in this world, your community.
What can you do now to help
bring peace to this world?
Start with people you know, your friends
or your family. Be aware, care,
And take on some extra responsibility.
Take one day, one moment of sharing,
one step at a time, and the mountains of
obstacles can be reduced to stones
washed by the Sea of Tranquility into mere
sand pebbles on a beach.
Then it’s to celebrate and make a sand castle.

In My Life

In My Life

In my life, I have done many things,
taken many challenges and chances,
and made many mistakes along the way.
On this journey, experience is the best
teacher in this survivor mode education
which teaches me what to do and say.
I can’t predict the future, really,
the past is now just history,
and I know I can only live for today.
Long ago, I found a guiding light,
a holy spirit which I cannot see
which will keep me safe, I pray.

The ends of a gun

The ends of a gun

Is there a right end of a gun,
or just a wrong end?
Which side is which?
The answers seem obvious.
No matter what they
are used for – crimes,
terrorism, entertainment or fun-
the damage – physical, mental,
or psychological – can be done.
Guilty feelings can kill as much
as a bullet, and emotions can tear a
heart into pieces, too.

The business is from a beeper,
and a call takes you away
to a place where the deal is down.
And a gun is for protection.
How quick are your reactions?
It is important or B A N G! you
can be killed, and fill a hole in
the ground.
And even a bungled burglary
can end in an accidental tragedy.
Is there a right end of a gun,
or just a wrong end?
Which side is which?
The answers seem obvious.

Me and My Shadow

Me and My Shadow

Me and my shadow,
It goes wherever I go,
but only in the light.
It changes all the time.
It sleeps with me in the night.
In the morning, I
see my friend again,
and my day begins.

I’m Only Scared (of Losing You)

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

I’m Only Scared (of Losing You)

It’s not that I’m afraid to die;
I’m only scared of losing you.
Your love has remained
despite what we’ve been through.
Without me as a part of your life,
I don’t know what you would do.
I’ve always thought of us as one,
though, in reality, we’re two.
It’s not that I’m afraid to die;
I’m only scared of losing you.

Easy Rider

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Rufus McDougal

Easy Rider

grease, raw power, and freedom
wheels and women
rubber rolls on the road…
the sun heats the hearts and souls
of those who love to live life.

machines, beer cans and tattoos
family of sorts
rock and roll moves us…
the Harley’s roar and worn leather are
exchanged for perfume and lace.

kiss of love, fights and muscles
strong words and force
only the smart stay alive…
money is to be spent on the pleasures
of life before the road stops at last.

When You’re Gone

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

The newest member of LSC, Antonio “Tony” Alejandro Martin Gonzales, got his weekend band together, and used his lyrics for this song he performed recently.

When You’re Gone

When you’re gone, when you’re gone,
When you’re gone, when you’re gone,
Things don’t seem the same, and
My mind plays this silly game.
I say your name when I’m in bed,
And I hear your sweet voice
softly say “wakeup sleepy head.”
But it’s really the noise coming
From the alarm clock radio.
It’s then I realize I need to go
To get ready for another day.
I really wish I could stay
And wish I could talk to you,
But you’re not really here.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone,
Things don’t seem the same.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
I first saw you in my dreams,
And I could draw you it seemed.
Then I saw you at the restaurant
And you were with a friend.
You were the one I wanted.
I didn’t even know your name,
But my life wasn’t the same.
I’ve got to know you better,
And spent some time together,
But there are times you leave.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
I first saw you in my dreams.
When you’re gone, when you’re gone.
