The Enchantment

Posted in Art Nouveau with tags , , , , , on October 1, 2010 by James Field

This fascinating creature you are…you are simply put, perfection. There is nothing that can set fire to my frozen heart than the look of your dazzling eyes. You are the most enigmatic and interesting force on this land. You seem to float, do you not? Always miles away, fading like a distant figure, but yet deceptively close. I reach for you…nothing…but I know your are there, haunting me with your love. You are neither real nor conceptual, neither person nor thing, you are a rare breed.

“Motives and Thoughts”

While searching through YouTube, I came across a poem that Lauryn Hill read on Def Poetry Jam.  This was by far the best poem I’ve ever heard in my whole life. Moreover; I am not saying this because I love, and acknowledge Lauryn Hill as an amazing artist, but because she did an excellent job, and deserves a shout out… So not to prolong this any longer I give you “Motives and Thoughts”. By: Lauryn Hill

Motives And Thoughts

Rotating bodies, confusion of sound
Negative imagery, holding us down
Social delusion, clearly constructed
Human condition, morals corrupted
Trapped in reaction, lawlessness war
Dissatisfaction from bowels to core
Devil’s technology, strategy for
Human mythologies, urban folklore
Sick of psychology, counterfeit cure
Wicked theology, robbing the poor
Scheme demonology mislead the pure
Strictly strategically studying war
Light shown in darkness, image exposed
Few can see through the new emperor’s clothes
Lustful this hustle turn humans to hoes
When the blind lead the blind
Just more trouble and woes
It’s the mind that they chose
Its designed to stay closed
Standard of jokers, court just a logic
Sick looking cosmics, from schoolyards to college
Primitive man with civilize knowledge
System collapse and he still won’t acknowledge
God is the saviour, studies behavior
Trying to fix the mix mind that he gave ya
Stiff-necked scholars on prescription meds
Wishing their problems were all in their heads
Morale dilemma, pride is the root
Misguided from youth, heart divided from truth
Egyptians and Grecians, spiritually dead
Imperially led, by the gods in their heads
Motives and thoughts
Industrial wealth
Global economy, in it for self
Heart full of madness, covered with kind
Pleasure designed to take over your mind
Furnished in godliness, painted in good
This tainted priesthood got real saints misunderstood
While classes in government, set up the veil
And cultivate minds for more mythical tales
Typical Hollywood follies good girl
While vice and corruption take over the world
Motives and thoughts
Check your motives and thoughts
Blind with the wickedness, deep in your heart
Modern day wickedness is all you’ve been taught
Lied to your neighbors, so you get ahead
Modern day trickery is all you’ve been fed
Motives and thoughts
Check your motives and thoughts.

Simple is love….simple is passion….simple is imperfection….simple is going with the flow….simple is letting loose….simple is love….simple is spritual….simple is cherished……
