Despair

Despair

A life negative—
No person’s immune from this.
Fight back hard always . . . 
	 No fear—be courageous now . . . 
And never ever give up!

Trust me - tanka




                          Dejected in love
                         I act in defiance of,
                          yet face the music
                      Why not look into my face,
                      Embrace panoptic passion !

Tears of the War

Tears of the war 




Tears flow silently,
Pride digs deep into the heart,
Dare you defy grief,
Bravery etched in the gold,
Mortals are now immortal !

The Smoke

           The Smoke
                  -:-

You smell the smoke
see the air we are breathing
It makes me gag
no way here for us to breathe
wish this smoke would go away

Light upon the Path

Sealed in walls of ice
My heart locked; frozen frail,
Ragged shardsduk-taped
After a swift fall from grace
Grim view of my shackled fate

Opening my mind
In order to see clearly
Amending time lost
Moving forward yet refrained
Seeking a promising path

Lily's, daisies, rose's,
Stoping to sniff as they bloom
Staring at the stars
Burning like a tigers eyes
Meek child I am no longer

Reach for heaven
To chase inner most desires
Stroking fire within
Aspiring to heights untold
Letting inner light shine o



(I connected this to "the great flower of life" in a perspective of personal growth from a troubled child to a positive and driven young adult inspired toward achieving greater things)

awakening

Awakening 

The dragon eats land
Steps on other people´s right
And we say nothing 
Because once it was wronged
Can´t speak ill of the ogre
The dragon spews fire 
Over anyone who seeks redress 
To get what is theirs 
And slowly the world awakes 
The monster a perilous fiend

Faith Hope Love

Faith fills us with peace,
Hope gives us strength to go on.
Love helps lift us up.
With faith, hope and love combined,
We’ll conquer life together.

Namaste namasti

Teaching what I learnt
From heroes and 
heroines-
The known and 
unknown
I owe each each of you 
hugs
Which I know are not 
worthless.

-Haiku-
Namaste my gems-
Smashing spread and 
light my pen.
Shalom to you all.

Double Tanka re: Malcolm X


 
a. Perspective of Malcolm X

in the ghettos
like the reservations
white man builds
a separation of skins
hearts and minds


b. My Perspective

Malcolm Little born
to roll uphill
against all odds
a boy transmogrifies
into variable X

Your sweet defender

Fruity and chocolate
Cakes and other temptations,
Worry not my dear,
I'll vanquish them all bravely
Before they reach your sweet tooth

Mind's choir

Inviting voices
Of your mind's opposing choirs,
Which ranks will you join,
Of cowardice and despair
Or courage and fulfillment

Nothing More Honourable Than Being Yourself

Be honoured of all
Others seem to think of you,
Their accusations
Never need validation:
Always be true to yourself.

Stuck in a pond

Sharing loneliness
On a boat in a stale pond
We keep throwing rocks
To imitate the great seas
Too cowardly to explore

Conqueror Of Words

Uttering those words
out loud as if they 'd been just 
discovered, you did 
bring them into their knees like 
a newfound land's conqueror.

Fight or flight

Romanticizing
We would all do the greatest
In the face of trials
But only a few embrace
Traits which conquer fears and pains

In Hopes Of What Will Be

Only thing worse than
Hanging by thread, is waiting
To live my own life.
I now know I much rather
Hang onto those words she said.

How to find it

Mustering courage
And immeasurable strength
Comes from the heart
Surpassing ego's limits
For the sake of a good cause

An audience

There's no safety net
For the heights I have to reach
To convince your mind
I should have an audience,
My heart face to face with yours
