The Great Garcin

b346651b-7832-4ac2-ba6f-d8396a8f7e5eThis post is aimed at all my musician/artist/entertainer friends on Facebook, and on other social media platforms such as, Reverbnation, Bandcamp, YouTube, etc…some, whom I know personally, and others whom I have met online throughout the years. The song, which I wrote and recorded at the end of 2018, was produced with one particular artist in mind, but in reality, it’s about all the artists who put their hearts on the line every day, in an attempt to enlighten, inspire, and entertain. Those of you who know Fernando “El Fer” Garcin will agree that he is one of a kind…a soldier fighting the good fight in the only way he knows how to…with words and phrases…thoughts….ideas….imagination…a poet fusing prose and music in ways that are unique and sincere. I hope you enjoy this brief introduction to and glimpse of El Fer. His work is readily available throughout the worldwide web. Just Google his name, click a link, and watch, listen, and learn.

The Great Garcin

The great Garcin with pen in hand
Could slay the beast in any man
His words a sharp and deadly sword
His manuscript a cutting board

While soldier strikes with tempered steel
Along the blood stained battlefield
With love and hope, the poet fights
For justice, truth, and human rights

While dignitaries, scribes, and kings
Profess their expertise on things
The silence of the soul in flight
Expands the mind, reveals the light

When threatened by man’s brutal force
Imagination takes its course
Rolls are reversed, a change of plans
The great Garcin is in command

The great Garcin is in command
The lion bows down to the lamb
The great Garcin is in command
He’s in command…

While dignitaries, scribes, and kings
Profess their expertise on things
The silent thrust of souls in flight
Expands the mind, reveals the light

When threatened by man’s brutal force
Imagination runs its course
The lion bows down to the lamb
The great Garcin is in command
He’s in command…
The Great Garcin…

    I know Fernando Garcin, and he deserves the acknowledgement not only is he an amazing musician and lyricist, he is also a good person!!

    I will share this on FB, as soon as I take a PIC of myself with his CD’S.

    You put a big smile on my face with this!!

      Sorry it took so long to thank you for your feedback…I don’t frequent WordPress often…only when trying to post to multiple sites simultaneously. I do appreciate you taking the time to comment. I agree…Fernando is a special person…he inspires me a lot.
