What, do you do, when what you want,
and what you need, are misaligned?
Nobody know. Or no one's told me.

Wait, for the storm, to pass away,
and with it clashing waves transform,
to ebb and flow, gently carry me, into the sea.

Swiftly, floating, drifting, hoping
to find shores of soft white sand
to sink my toes into, and be filled with
a love of pure intent. will you sail, meet me there?

You're not who i once, thought you to be.
On second thought, perhaps its better that you stay
I'll be okay. I'll find new love, across the sea.

I'll be set free.

I'll find new me.

before the day you were born, my mother prayed for you
she didn't know your name, or the color of your hair
but she knew you were made for me, to be my lover and my friend

my mother she always knew, what i was meant to be
she could see it in my eyes, when she looked deep into
i was meant to love, to love, to love
i am yo neighba

...you.said... [11 May 2008|11:00pm]
you said save your pennies for a rainy day
and you said you'd be with me when skies turned grey
and you said every word to make things okay

and you said you'd never leave me, i said the same
and you said you'd always love me, swore on your name
and you said you'd say good morning when daylight came

and daylight never came,
and and skies are grey today
and your not here, to say
to say to say... anything.

we said goodnight, and i left you alone
in the dark, tears streaming from inside of both of us
and as we lay, on mattresses in our separate rooms
i press my ear up to your wall
hoping to hear
something, i would settle for anything.
but all i heard
were noises from the empty spaces between the clapboard walls.
with nothing to do,
and sleeplessness plaguing my body and mind
alone and afraid
to sneak past the creaking of the hallway floor
and lay next to you
and tell you as the tears continue to fall
this will all be ok
we'll make it through baby, listen to me...

work in progress... [04 Dec 2006|12:52am]
so this is not finished, but i've got a guitar part, and some lyrics so its almost done.....


won't you be my favorite nothing
cause we both know this can't be more than something
and won't you fly with me, to our favorite bay
on a sea of dreams, we'll forever stay
and you can be my favorite color, just as long as it is gray,
and you can be my long lost lover, just as long as you won't stay
cause you're my only favorite nothing
and we both know this can't be more than something
you're my everything, but not anything
you're my shining star, in my field of dreams
you're my best friend, that i'll never know,
you mean more to me, than i'll ever show,
and you can be my favorite nothing,
but that is all you'll be, not more than something

thanksgiving was bitter sweet. but thankfully more on the sweet side.
i got to see my whole family. it was amazing to see all of them, especially the kids, to see how much they've grown, to see how adorable they are. it was awesome hanging out with my siblings. i spent time with abbie. it was great. but at the same time, thanksgiving left me feeling stressed. i need a break. i need to get out of my house. i need a place to call my own. i need money. i need, i need, i need. i can be so selfish. so concentrated on what is not important. but what is it that i really need?
i need to submit to You, Lord Christ.
Take dominion over my life, my heart.
break through my hardened exterior, and transform my soul.
my heart is your's. my life is under your command.
Be my lover, my friend, but more than all, be my King.

my last post [22 Oct 2006|09:39pm]
so in my last post i commented talked about a song that i wrote in september etc... well, turns out that when i posted the song i put it as pritvate, so if you went looking for it and couldn't find it, i appologize, and here it is.


like waves on the open sea, so your love crashes into me
you lift me up on the wings of a dove, into your loving arms above,
this is a love song, to the One in me.
how you carry me when i am weak, how you hear me when my voice won't speak
that's how i know this is love, love, love. that's how i know that You are love.
this is a love song to the One in me.
and when i push you away, by my side you forever stay.
you hold me closer, closer still, you make the emptiness filled.
this is a love song to the One in me.

so i was looking through my lj today, and i noticed this song that i posted on sept. 2 or somthing like that, but i didnt put who it was by or the title or anything, and when i saw it today, i was like, wow, those are some good lyrics, i wonder who they are by? so i did some google searching and couldnt find anything. i later realized that it was somehting i wrote in cap cod and forgot about. i am such an idiot! but on the other hand, i wrote some sweet lyrics. i put it to music today, it makes me happy.

off to class in a little while, that is not so happy. blech.

[ mood | sleepy ]

so i wrote this today. its not completed, i may change a few things, but here is the rough draft....


Love’s not a sad song, despite what you’ve been told
Rather, love’s a thing of beauty, a gift to the world
This is a song about love, love, love

So I’ll take the melody
And you sing in harmony
And together we’ll sing a most beautiful thing
Its called love, love, love, love, love.
We’re singin’ ‘bout love, love, love, lo-oo-oove.

Now I’ve got a story, to tell all around
How love lost, became found, it’s a beautiful sound
It’s called love, love, love.

So sing loud and sing it clear, sing it for the world to hear,
Sing it soft and without fear, whisper love into my ear.
This is a song about love, love, love.

Now I’ll sing is sweet, to the rhythm of you heart beat
and together in love, we’ll never face defeat.
This is your song about love, love, love.

~jap

[ mood | chipper ]

me and abbie got betta fish on saturday. her's is named flipper, mine is named pirana, cause he's hard core. yeah.

bridgewater fair was kinda boring, but we did get cotton candy and fudge that tasted so wicked good!

Chilli's on sat. night + abbie, me, jr, phill, jay, isaac, and AMY = AWESOME!

sunday i hung out with abbie's dad and played guitar and drove around in his MG convertible. oh man, it was nice. went to the evening service at abbie's church then went back to her house for dinner, movie, sleep etc... drove home this mornig. it was a really good weekend.

this is my last week watching the boys. that makes me sad, i am going to miss it.
that also means that i have to find a job. fun. i hate job searching!

i am excited about this weekend though. my brother invited abbie and i to go camping with his youth group. it should be awesome!

[ mood | drained ]

editing pictures is going to be the death of me..........

i am yo neighba

so last night..... [15 Aug 2006|11:01am]
[ mood | rejuvenated ]

i hung out with jay and isaac last night. it was pretty much awesome. the three of us just kind of clicked i guess. we went to a diner in bristol and then we were bored and in the mood to play music, but we had no where to go, so we just went to wellspring to sit on the tables outside and play because we knew no one would care there. nico and chris were there so we chilled with them for a bit and then they left and we played music and just chilled some more. then we went to NB diner. ha two diners, one night... awesome. no but seriously it was. sooo anyway, that was pretty much it, after that i drove them home and went home myself, but it was nice seeing them. i havent hung out with them for a while, and the last time i saw them we didnt really get a chance to talk or anything, so being able to really talk and stuff was really great.


on another note.....

i did alot of thinking on the way home last night. i kind of realized a lot of things. two years ago when i moved back from boston, i was just a kid. i didnt know anything about who i was, who god was, where i was going, or anything. i was lost. god found me and revealed himself to me. i have learned so much in the past two years. about me, god, relationships, my friends. its like, i spent the last two years learning, and none of the learning i did came from classes. it was all learned in real life, outside of the classroom. in the past two years i haven't really learned anything in the classes i took, but i learned so much just from living with God in my life. he has prepared me for the things ahead. it like, before, i couldnt succeed in school because i was too busy learning life, and now, i know enough that i can slow down, and do life and learn school, and not the other way around. i spend the past two years doing school, just enough to get by, and learning life. now i can do the opposite. god has prepared me for the semester, physically, emotionally, spritually, and mentally. i am looking forward to the semester. i am going to do well. i am going to try my hardest, and let God take care of the rest. abbie said something awesome last week, she said that we can worship god in our schoolwork. wow, what a concept. its so true, we should be worshiping god with all we do. i havent been doing that. its time to start. with the new semester comes a new start, a new me.

so lets go God, lets do this together.
