How Deep Is Deep?

How deep is water when your use to the shallow end?
 
How deep are thoughts that never end?
 
How deep is love when all you know is lust ?
 
How deep is a relationship when there is no trust?
 
How deep are pockets that only spend?
 
How deep is a will that never bends?
 
How deep is deep when there is no depth?
 
How deep is life when you don't treasure each breathe?
 
How deep is a run when there is no race?
 
How deep is a career that's stuck in place?
 
How deep will you go, when all you know are short routes?
 
How deep are your goals when all you hear are doubts?
 
How deep is deep when your deep has no end?
 
When does your deep start and how will your deep end?

 

"FOR YOUR FRIENDS"

LYD Productions

I can't take all of your mind, because other people need a piece to.
        
It's so very unique to me all the wonderful things that you do.
        
If i could i would keep your mind all to my self, but to much at one time
       
may be bad for my health. I can't take all of your mind, because your friends 
       
won't like me then. Yeah, I know they need a piece to; so do Ma Duke's, ya sistas, 
       
and all 'em. I can't keep it all to myself, because that just wouldn't be right.
        
Your friends also need that caressing spirit and that open ear at night. 
       
I can't take all of your mind, because your friends need a piece too. 
       
They need to know what's up with Ma, " WHO IS THIS MR. POETRY MAN
       
TAKING ALL OF YOUR MIND", is that what they say among themselves.
       
I can't take all of your mind, i wish i could keep it all to myself, but Damn 
       
your friends need a piece too.

"BE PATIENCE"

LYD Productions

I WANT WHAT I WANT AND I WANT IT NOW, BUT SHE SAYS "BE PATIENCE".
 
AS I LOOK AT MY WATCH I WANT TO HEAR HER VOICE, BUT TIME SAYS "BE PATIENCE".
 
WHEN I THINK ABOUT HOLDING HER IN MY ARMS MY BODY SAYS "BE PATIENCE".
 
AS I ENVISION OUR FUTURE, MY MIND SAYS "BE PATIENCE".
 
THE ANTICIPICATION OF HAVING MY LIPS ON YOURS " BE PATIENCE".
 
THE SIGHT OF YOU WITH NO-CLOTHES ON "BE PATIENCE".
 
HOW MUCH PATIENCE CAN (1) MAN HAVE?
 
JUST WAITING TO LOVE THE WOMEN THAT SO MANY HAVE LET SLIP AWAY, "BE PATIENCE".
 
LONGING TO SEE YOUR FACE EVERYDAY, "BE PATIENCE".
 
TRYING TO LET OLD RELATIONSHIPS DIE, "BE PATIENCE".
 
THINKING ABOUT THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL, "BE PATIENCE".
 
DAMN, HOW MUCH PATIENCE CAN (1) MAN HAVE? WHEN PATIENCE IS SOMETHING 
 
HE NEVER HAD TO USE BEFORE.
 
I'M BEING PATIENCE AND I'M BEING PATIENCE FOR YOU, DON'T WANT TO RUSH BECAUSE 
 
THEIR'S NO NEED TO. THE HARD PART IS OUT OF THE WAY AND I'LL BE PATIENCE UNTIL THE DAY 
 
YOU SAY "I DO". I'LL DO FOR YOU AS YOU DO FOR ME, UNTIL THAT DAY I'LL "BE PATIENCE".

"I HAVE A SECRET"

LYD Productions

I HAVE A SECRET AND IT'S HARD TO KEEP. IT ALMOST SLIPS OUT EVERYTIME I SPEAK.
 
I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW THIS SECRET OF MINE, BUT THEY'LL ALL KNOW 
 
WITH TIME, WITH TIME.... WITH TIME.
 
YEAH, I GOT THIS SECRET UNDER LOCK AND KEY, AND ONLY ONE PERSON KNOWS
 
BESIDES ME. I HAVE A SECRET, THAT LONGS TO BE AND I'M TEMPTED TO LET 
 
IT ROAM FREE.
 
I REALLY WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW, I'VE GOT A LOVE JONES AND I PROMISE
 
THAT I WON'T LET GO.
 
I HAVE A SECRET INSIDE OF ME AND WHEN I LET IT GO I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE,
 
THE LOOKS ON PEOPLES' FACES, AND THE COMMENTS THAT THEY'LL MAKE.
 
I CAN HEAR THE NAY-SAYERS; MISTAKE, MISTAKE, MISTAKE.
 
I HAVE A SECRET, IF YOU TAKE A LOOK YOU CAN READ IT ON MY FACE IT'S AN OPEN BOOK.
 
I WANT ALL TO SEE AND ALL TO KNOW I'VE GOT A LOVE AND I PROMISE THAT 
 
I WON'T LET GO!

"YOU THINK YOU KNOW"

LYD Productions

You think you know, but have no idea, is this brother fake or is he real?
 
Telling you tales from things of the past; some tales make you say hmmmm and others make you laugh.
 
You think you know , but have no idea, so much in common DAMN 
 
how did you avoid my radar field.
 
I should of seen you a long time ago, but my radar was dis functional and that's how you slipped by.
 
What am i to do now that my radar won't stop beepin', wishin' i was in your spot
 
so we could do a little creepin'.
 
You think you know, but have no idea just what i'm thinkin' and how i truly feel.
 
For a women like you, needs a man like me, someone who'll appreciate all that you are and aspire to be.
 
You think, you think,........ yeah you think you really know, but reality doesn't kick in
 
 until the heart says' so.
 
My heart is speakin' and it's spittin' a mean game, but my mind is in control 
 
and he thinks the hearts insane.
 
So what am i to do?
 
You think you know, i have no clue how my feelings for thee suddenly grow,
 
Deep in my heart, embedded in my mind i guess with all things we'll find out in time

"A DIAMOND"

LYD Productions

DIAMONDS, ARE HARD TO FIND AND ALL I'M TRYIN' TO DO IS FIND MINE,
 
I THOUGHT I HAD ONE BEFORE, BUT IT TURNS OUT IT MAY BE FAKE.
 
WHEN I SEE MY DIAMOND MY HEART BEATS WITH JOY,
 
JUST LIKE A BOY IN A HOBBY STORE. 
 
YEAH, BEAUTY IS WHAT I SEE, A REAL DIAMOND THAT'S MADE JUST FOR ME.
 
DIAMONDS, ARE HARD TO FIND AND ALL I'M TRYIN' TO DO IS FIND MINE.
 
IF I COULD I WOULD TAKE YOU, BE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT APPRECIATE YOU.
 
YOU'D BE MY "MA", I'D BE YA "PA", BUT DAMN, 
 
I STILL HAVE TO LET SOMEBODY LOOSE.
 
DIAMONDS, ARE HARD TO FIND AND ALL I'M TRYIN' TO DO IS FIND MINE.
 
I SEE MINE AND I WANT IT , BUT SOMEHOW IT MAY BE OUT OF MY REACH.
 
Just a little something for your mind and i appreciate the support.

HEZ-ZA-KI-AH

"A KING TO BE"

LYD Productions

 
I have a Prince named Hezekiah, that looks like me.
Every-time i see his face, its' me i see.
I keep asking myself ( is that me at 3 ).
 
This Prince named Hezekiah, with a smile so bright,
don't worry about electricity cuz he's my light!
Tryin' my best to be a good dad, to show him wrong from right.
Me and his moms' aren't together ( but its' OK ).
She won't keep him out of my life, she know don't play.
If you want to see the thug come-out of me,
put ya' hands on my son Jekyll and Hyde I'll be. 
 
Workin' hard, workin' long so he can take his spot,
his king-dom is building-up so he'll be on top.
He won't have to struggle, for a dollar or two,
i'm thinkin' about his future ( & my grandkids to ).
 
This Prince named Hezekiah, yeah he looks like me
and i'm proud to be his dad, one-day a man i'll see.
Know that daddy loves you and this poems for you,
cuz i'm thinking about your future & my grandkids to.
 
A special poem dedicated to HNP

"TAKE YOUR PLACE"

LYD Productions

Don't let people stop you from being you.
They can talk all they want, Words don't hurt, see.
Cause I'm still going to be me.
I can't worry about nobody else, 
I heard that worrying stuff may be bad for your health.
I'm just tryin', to let you know.
AIM HIGH!!!!
So you can show, all those doubters and those haters too.
Step they game up, when they talk to you.
I'm taking mine, what about you.
I'm taking mine, what about you.
 
If you have a dream, don't let it blow in the wind,
can't worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will one-day end.
I'm a poet, thats' what i do; 
it makes me happy when one-line is through.
I'm taking my destiny, because its' my time.
This man that was grapes, has turned to fine wine.
 
I'm taking mine, what about you.
I'm taking mine, what about you.

"THE SWEET VOICE OF THE NIGHT"

LATE NIGHT CONVERSATIONS ARE TIMES TO REALLY DIG DEEP AND FIND OUT ABOUT THE PERSON YOUR TALKING TO.

LYD Productions

I've got late night conversations on my mind.
Talkin' to a queen so divine, its' not just her beauty but the way she speaks.
Damn, so sexy its' hard for me to sleep.
I've got late night conversations on my mind,
talkin' to a queen so fine.
I wait patiently for the sun to fall,
cuz its' in the p.m. hours that she calls.
So far-away in distance, but so close in heart,
what God puts together,
let no-man part.
I got late night conversations on my mind,
talkin' to a queen so hard to find.
I don't mind losing the sleep, 
I enjoy the late a.m. hours we keep.
I get to go to a spot so deep,
I grow stronger you other brother get weak.
I got late night conversations on my mind, 
talkin' to a queen so fine.

"Maybe its' You"

LYD Productions

They can't understand, knowing after one look.
They can't understand, like a fish i was hooked.
They can't understand the conversations we have.
They can't understand, i like English ( you like math ).
They can't understand, how our paths crossed this way.
They can't understand, how we communicate each day.
They can't understand, the things we do and say.
They can't understand, the joy we feel and see.
They can't understand, how this was meant to be.
They can't understand, the joy you put on my face.
They can't understand, how you complete me.
They can't understand, No!
Its' not them that doesn't understand, its' You!
 
What do you do, when the one you want questions if they want you?
Do you hold on to see if their questioned mind has made you their choice.
Or do you fade away in anger ( how could they ever question our love for them ).
This pride that we have says, " I'm tried of givin' 2nd chances when people
don't make the most of the first".
Are they the only ones that have tasted the pain of this thing called "Misery".
I THINK NOT! 
We've tasted her on more than one occasion, and her taste is a bitterness hard to forget.
What do you do, when the one you love wants to throw your love away.
Maybe its' You.

"What does beauty mean to you"

LYD Productions

Everyday, i see beautiful girls with beautiful bodies with beautiful curls,
but they not the girls for me.
Don't get it twisted my diamond is one of a kind, I see you starin' dude
hypnotized by her shine. 
But beauty, is more than just skin deep,
I see that booty, you make it hard to even BLINK!
Let alone Think, what i, would do to you.
I see your beauty, but i see it from a different view.

Does that beauty really belong to you?
Yeah.... faking your beauty, implants in your chest and booty.
I apologize if that line is referring to you. 
Quit trying to be a dime piece cuz you need to use a different scale,
seekin' out these ballers and those dudes fresh out of jail.
Those girls are not for me, I'm seeking a beautiful mind that seeking a college degree,
because if i fall she'll still want Me.
Beauty is not just the Bump in the Rump, your money in clumps, or how sexy, you look in those pumps.
I see beautiful girls everyday, plenty of bodies along the way, but its a beautiful mind that i seek.
