All Behind


I don't have any reasons
I left them all behind
I'm in a New York state of mind

Given To Us .........


           Do you think that i count the days ?  There is only one day left, always starting over ; it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.

Le Trou


Snake at the Trough


A snake came to my water trough
On a hot, hot day and I in pyjamas for the heat
To drink there

In the deep strange scented shade of the great carob tree
I came down the steps with my pitcher
And must wait, must stand and wait, for there he was at the trough before me

Snake

Who You Are


                             The most common form of despair is not being who you are.

It's Probably Me


When your belly's empty and the hunger's so real
But you're too proud to beg and too dumb to steal
You search the city for your only friend

It's Probably Me
(Sumner,Clapton,Kamen)
Gregory Porter

Best of Nothing

But the World ............


       But the world isn't for nice guys. You've got to kick and punch and belt your way up because nobody's going to give you a lift.
