Open Sores

I am a coward with open sores. 
I write and wonder who it bores. 
I hear my heart and mind argue repeatedly. 
I see others carrying out my dreams; 
that’s what’s defeated me.
I am a coward with open sores. 
I pretend open doors are closed, and walk the other way. 
I touch base with the fear in my heart, tearing me apart,
leaving nothing to say... 
I worry the world will leave me. 
I cry because no one believes in me. 

I am a coward with open sores. 
I understand nothing comes easy. 
I say I’m happy, but even I don’t believe me. 
I dream I am healed and brave. 
I try to overcome my weaknesses before I’m in my grave. 
I hope you hear me.
I’m on all fours. 
I am a coward with open sores.

My Thanksgiving Prayer

T	he God of our Fathers, sole author of all life
H	e, by decree placed man above the rest 
A	nd all other creations in his charge for keeping
N	ow and forever, let your truths be written in our hearts
K	eeping man forever mindful of this high place
S	o with gratitude this special day is planned
G	iving thanks and praise to the one true King
I	n you alone our faith and trust will lie
V	alidate our hearts we do implore
I	nundate our lives with grace of light
N	ever turn away from our humble plea 
G	ive us eyes to see and the ears to hear

D	ying, freely, you gave us life; by rising you gave us hope 
A	ll your words and actions teach the ultimate truth
Y	our love alone holds our world in stead

Seed Of Friendship-A dedication

L-iving in a world of vast 
souls formed from 
another voided world,
E-ntering thru portals 
from their world to earth.
O-ozing spetacular smell 
and wail when the chips 
are down.
N-urtured from cradle to 
entity with a new world 
to face.
O-rganizes oneself for the 
task ahead,passing thru 
hurdles of life unabased 
and unabashed.
R-eaps the fruit of labor 
with joy or heavy heart.
A-ge sets in,mission 
accomplished or not will 
dawn on the entity.

I-n retrospect,he thinks 
about his childhood and 
how life was to him.

L-iving in confidence or 
shame,he bows his head 
in victory or defeat.
O-nly the taste of time 
will tell the durability of 
his achievements.
V-oid of preference the 
aim result bears the 
foundation for his lineage.
E-njoyment or lack lies 
with the works of the 
man,for there is no food 
for the slothful.

Y-oung ones,a stitch in 
time saves nine,make 
haste while the sun 
O-iling your lamb always 
like the ten virgins is the 
key to success.
U-rging you to shun peer 
pressure and focus on 
the course marked out 
for you by fate,so a 
fulfilled life you shall live.

An acrostic for you 
Leonora Galinita.

~His Name Is Wonderful~

Earned his name~
Suffered all the pain~
Under the hands of men~
Settled with hate against him~

Compassionately he forgave them still~
He loved us then and he always will~
Rising he gave us the right to survive~
Intoxicating he is to all of our lives~
Supplying our each and every need~
Thank you father, For blessing me~

Our king above kings~
Understanding he brings~
Radiant he is indeed~

Living for Christ is the greatest thing~
Only in him may you rest in peace~
Remember each day to trust and forgive~ 
Divided from him is no way to live~

Indigo Crimson and Violence. Opposing 

Latitudes Inhibit Their Vision. A Flurry

Of Intransmutable Distance Forming

Vast Atlantic Ocean, Spread Across The  

Everplain.  -This World Freezes, All I see is

You. - A Beacon of light Shines Lucidly Upon

Obstacles Which Seem Immortally 

Unsurpassable.  An Exercise in Self

Mutilation and a Non-Ending Escapade

Into The Unfurled, She is My

Chaotic Immortal Siren. She Preaches Her

Affinity and Defiance Within Her

Embered Eden. This Affair of

Love is Not Quite Over, Micaela

All This Time.....I've Waited For You

I am in love with you

Loving you is not hard to do.

Open your eyes and see that it is me,

Vowing my self to you, you see?

Even though we argue, I still love you

Yearning for you to love me too.

Open you heart, mind, and soul, and

Understand why I love you so

In The Mood For Love Again

I dream of the lovely times we spent 
Nurturing our new found love.
The past is lovingly recalled in quiet
Hours, hours spent thinking of you. 
Each new day is an adventure, yet
Moments from the past flash back when
Ordinary routine has me reminiscing
Of our wild and youthful  
Days, when we couldn’t get enough of  
Fine wine and sumptuous dinners with
Only the two of us to contemplate our
Romantic trysts, whenever we could unite.   

Love always lingered long in 
Our thoughts, but alas now the 
Vice of time has us in its grip as we
Endeavor to keep the fires of desire burning.   

As we grow older, our love deepens into a
Greater understanding of what true love 
Avows. It shares a mental, emotional and physical 
Impact upon the life we have built together; 
Never ending in desire, trust and contentment.

Love came down at Christmas

L Long ago travelled Kings
O Opened their minds to prophecies
V Visiting from afar they brought gifts of Gold, Fracincense and Myrrh
E Eastern Star guiding them lighting the way

C Company of Heavenly Host
A Allelujah! Angels appeared to Shepherds, telling Savior born
M Manger for bed wrapped in cloths in Town of David
E Evangelically proclaimed Christ the Lord

D December 25th designated day
O On which we recollect
W Why/way Christ entered our world
N Nativity only part of His story

A A new testament
T Tells of new covenant between God and His people

C Christ's coming to Earth
H Hailed as new born King, Holy
R Risen Lord, righteous redeemer, 
I Intercedes for us as
S Spiritual Saviour to save sinners souls
T Time for Truth, Trust, Trinity
M Man's belief in God of Love,  
A As Father Son and Holy Spirit
S Shall be saved

I.  looked inside of me for the answers but they were invisible.

    Blindness over took me and you taxed my patience.

    Internally is where I live and my body is what carries me.

R. IP address wasn't found and you stayed hidden.

    I waited for my refund and even called upon you with your wealth of information.

    I tried to cash my disability check but there were insufficient funds.

S. ince you left I wandered without a plan except to keep it moving.

    But I'm no longer available, I'm on the go.

    I taxted you but your number was no longer listed.


            The taxman always win except when one dies

H e will hoist my spirit and embrace my soul into contentment. I mage forms via an informed acumen. S trength augments my strife in life. A mazing is the lucidity of the mind. P lease, may I have this honor of speaking to you? O rnate you with lavishing words. W isdom and knowledge you award. E verlasting faith bequeathed through imploration. R ising above my trials and trepidation, F or you is the keeper of my soul. U shering relevance in the most significant way, L ife guidance provided each day. T empered to the intensity of my faithfulness, H ow time is only the hourglass of eternity. I venerate in the privacy of my home. N othing is more invigorating than adulation of the Lord God. G ist is faith being that it is the most powerful entity universal. ______________________________________________________________________| Penned on January 07, 2015!

Breath Of Life

Warm ,tingly, vibrate and calm
yet astonishing, amazing
Simply pure
Calm, nurturing, beautiful
Oh so rare
Instantly capturing
Delightful, graceful, and subconsciously aware
but plainly distinct
Moments notice
Second chances, forgiveness, and divine 
Overwhelming light
Blazing, alluring
Golden Glare
Breathe Of Light
has been set forth for me
Through my personal tragedies
Cancer, auto accidents, personal issues
Death couldn't declare
Heartache, broken relationships
loss of loved ones to bear
Darkness, coldness
images of hell at a stare
Breathe of Life
has been set forth for me
White doves, rainbows
Angels in the realm
demons, shadows
following me
Oh so grim
Victory, Praise
Hallelujah I scream
Breath Of Life for me
has been set forth
For it's not a dream
It's my reality!

Your Eyes

 (Dedicated to Folake)

Your eyes, woman
are like twilight rainbow
amorously bearing aloft passions of mine
toward androcytic ecstacy.
They tell of endless lights.

Night skies clarion the warmth of you
keep me balled-up till
i am tilted to your adorned essence.

May I call up words to adore you,
agglomerate them into a panoply of worshippers
unsandalled before you
like Moses at the burning bush.
And now you seem to fall asleep
but you tell me it's the heavy night
bidding toward a sunny dawn
wherein our love is lighted.

Slowly I let you fall asleep
impatient with the long night
waiting to gaze once more
into the eyes of my lovely love.

Then a lip is placed on yours
and you rouse up wide-eyed
smiling at my romantic move.
We enjoyed the night, cruising on.

The Message

I'm not the greatest of all-times, but when I'm done, I'll be an all time great in this lifetime of mine Like the late great who came before my time I will breed a new lifeline, that will breathe life like march of dimes My story lines, will bring truth life; like troops who fight Overseas, for rights of those who believe that death is life Now that ain't right! As the rich is getting richer, eating fillet me-non, while we barely feeding our appetite Night after night Survival has waged a war that gave us no choice but to battle and fight Although, we'll be all right They say we a dying breed, but that ain't right Instead we're the light to a lying greed That will enlighten life to a brand new seed A man of God indeed Freed from the Son that bleeds Like the summer breeze He's the sum that equals the amount of air I breathe The air that please A satisfaction like the birds and the bees My word's words are the keys That will fornicate with the mind and give birth to a seed A seed of social change, that'll change our social economy So shall our comradery That will bring comfort to a struggling society A synonym...similar to a civilization seeking for unity Unifying the physics of theory That seeks to explain the synopsis of a dying philosophy Similar to the Cosby X-cept my scrip-tic will speak more about our reality Like life's calamity And everything else in life that's destroying us systematically However, I've discovered a system That can mathematically destroy ignorancy And turn our state of mind intellectually I elect that He (God) selects me to be And be that man who may lead this community So that they (My Peoples) may commute with me En-route to a destination, destine towards our destiny Like we were destine to be We were meant to be "Great" like the late great that came before we. Because we are... The reflection where perfection gave birth to the definition of greatness Where great means Competent, Skilled, Well Informed, and Tremendous Our potentials are endless And only we not even the enemy can put an end to this So it's time we put a stop to this The biggest enemy of self And that's envy and jelousness Cause after this is Heaven or Hell and that's all there is A promised made sealed with a kiss Knowing this Is the next best thing since "In the beginning" In the first chapter of the first verse in Genesis!

If you don't eat, you're anorexic if you do eat, you're a fat ass.
If you don't wear makeup, you're ugly. If you wear makeup, you're a fake.
If you're loud, you're annoying; if you're quiet, you're weird.
If you're good in school, you're smart; if you say something wrong, you're stupid.
If you take pictures, you're an attention-whore; if you don't stalk your friends you're not cool.
If you wear sweats, you're underdressed; if you wear a dress, you're overdressed.
If you don't have boobs, no guys like you; if you have boobs, they're fake.
If you don't have a boyfriend, you're a loser; if you have one, he's cheating on you.
You tell us to be who we are but then you go and judge us about it. So now, do you see how hard it is for us to just be ourselves?

Feels like the world and destiny is testing you,
Assuming you can simply overlook things,
Irrespective of always being genuine ,and never giving up
Like all great moments are dim, ignored, and forgotten;
Unless the world and destiny simply has the pleasure of testing your patience,
Repeatingly, that now you have to make a decision and recognize it is a phase,
Empowering those positive thoughts to erupt to sustain a noble empire of compassion.

Earths people, it is time to wake up, the ‘Prince’ is alive! 
Ascension available, access through your heart 
Seek and you shall find! 
Time is short, personally unite, connect as one
Eternity given
Rise to the occasion, celebrate the gift of life, bond, with ‘our lord Jesus’ and ‘our Universal Father in heaven, building a bridge, experiencing kinship, between human and spirit

You're The Only One For Me

I love you darling for your devotion and unconditional love
We've had a special relationship since the day we met
I've only to ask for help my dear and you've been there for me
Lying with you everyday you whisper tender words in my ear
Later we'll make love and I'll fall asleep in your loving arms
Lovely romantic gifts such as chocolates, candy and flowers
Over the years you've given me to show how much you care
Valuable than gold are the memories we've shared my love
Evermore to be in my heart and remembered each year from now
You're my sunshine in the morning and my stars at night
Our first kiss is one that I'll remember the rest of my life
Until I met you I didn't know what it meant to be loved
As I walked towards you down the aisle on our Wedding Day
Looking very proud as you stood there in your black suit
Waiting for me to join you at the altar with a smile on your face
As I stood beside you there, together we recited our vows
You and I were now joined as one, as husband and wife
Since that day we've been on a journey side by side for life.

Valentine's Day is very special to us because it was the day that my husband proposed to me as well. It's a time for Lovers.

Country Acrostic

Canada the home of my birth
open sky from sea to shining sea
unbelievable beauty captivates my heart
no other place I would rather live
teaming with wildlife trees and lakes
rising rocky mountains in the west
yesterday, today and tomorrow a part of me

Who Am I

Who am I?
Question indeed!

  W-eaned from tender 
age,in noble family of ten.
  H-urt by the demise of 
the tube that brought 
me into this theater of 
struggles and pains.
  O-rdered about by the 
whimps of this 
world,facing the hurdles 
of life daily from 
cradle,never giving up 
  A-fine young man of 28 
I am,who has the 
experience and wisdom 
of the aged.
  M-astering the arts of 
life-learning from lessons 
of life's victims and 
didactic poems 'cos man 
of fame I intend to be for 
I bear the name Bob.

  I-lost my poetic gift at a 
stage but recovered it in 
poetrysoup for invisible 
entities say a 
lesser being I shall be,but 
another encourages me 
to move on,for great is 
one who comes out of 
the shackles of life 
undeterred for this is who 
I am.

Though I did not want anyone to know

Helping people is what I try to do so I can grow

Even when it is tough I realize I help people not for show

Self involvement is a must a way to make things make sense

Eager to do things I become sometimes dense

Caring about the things I love is what really can help my choice

Revealing my secret to you I will keep my poise

Even when the time comes I will not be spoiled because of my heart

The secret to doing things is make it a great memory so it will not part

Bridge over troubled water

If I could only take away your pain
You would always find my hand in yours
Need you by my side
A love for you so strong and never dies
Friend, husband, my lover
I’m forever yours
Sailing together on life’s rough journey
Right by your side forever
Behind us all our troubles, we just look forward to the future
Like our holiday in the sun 
A break we need so much since you have been so ill
Bridge built, no barrier we cannot overcome
Over all the years together
Troubled times are now in the past
Water under the bridge, your cancer is gone forever
I will be yours until the day we die
Will stay by your side
Ease back gently into the peaceful life we once knew
Your ever loving wife
Mind body and soul forever yours

Written for the Competition sponsored by Roy Jerden
Bridge over Troubled water - Word Acrostic (my first ever acrostic poem)

He Was Pierced

Holy One, God's own Son, PIERCED for me
Every sin, put Him there, on that cross

What love, I know not why, SAVING Grace
Alone, apart from God, The Father
Separated, by your sins and mine

Pardoned, by His sacrifice, He GAVE
I, so unworthy, yet so grateful
Everlasting assurance, FINISHED
Restored, through Christ's shed blood, I AM FREE
Conquering death, Jesus ROSE again
Even now, sitting at God's right hand
Day and night, I thank Him, PIERCED for me.

A real hero

                                                             A REAL HERO?
                                                          By: Synthia Miner

                  What does it take to be a hero?
  Being a single mother, keeping a family strong.
   or a single father, helping his daughter along.
  Maybe a soldier leaving his newly pregnant wife.
or making the ultimate sacrifice, to save only one life?

                  What makes a real hero?
      Knowing how to stop a drug lab or a bomb.
  or having the power to save a child gone wrong.
      Is it being able to help the hungry,
  or saving everything that’s been lonely.

                   How do we define a hero?
       Every way you look at it, people can say,
             heroes come naturally…. in a way,

       But; when you dig down deep,
          I see only one answer

           A real hero must have the will to live;
                 whether for him or her self,
      or everything and everyone one around them.
Heroes have the courage to stand up for what they believe in.

From this I say, that my Uncle Jason Mullholand is a real hero.
         He has fought for his life, not just to be alive,
                        but for raising his family.

                 So you see, heroes are hear everyday.
      It’s the soldier fighting for peace,
        and the mother battling cancer.
   And the kids you ignore hunting for food,
    Just to feed their always hungry siblings.

    A real hero values the life of everyone, 
     and charges with the courage of love.

To every hero out there 
Please keep up the fight for life!
