O~n occasion, the mind accretes to, "the hurt," when facing
V~icissitudes; blinded by, "the better nature," causing to
E~fface the focus from the Architect while simultaneously
R~aising questions why. Impatience encourages the
C~ollaboration of misery to consult with those of the same mind.
O~nly then to find temporary pleasure due to humanly clocks power.
M~entally drained by dint of attacks upon attacks; seemingly to be
I~nsufferable and impregnable. Though the Architect,
N~ever vanishes and will never vanish from the scene. So,
G~ive and release all apprehension with entire trust.
S~torms will arise from daybreak to nightfall. It must be remembered the
A~rchitect of whom in total control oversees misery so
N~ever question the authority. Become courageous and
D~etermined that, "This Too Shall Pass." Be conscious of
S~trength, wisdom and knowledge evolving afterwards.
T~oday, focus on the size of the Architect and Not
O~n what the mind can't do. Always
R~emain prayerful and faith filled.
M~ust never ignore the Architect of whom created life's puzzle
S~hifting all elements of sand in place from day to day.

Mountains crumble no more to be
Oceans of woe since you left me
Thunder rolls and my heart it breaks
Humbly life ends, my soul it quakes
Everlasting grief with no mend
Reminds me daily, it will not bend
Inconceivable, this pain I bear
My love's not gone, together we'll share
In lasting glory at Jesus' feet
Serenity and grace, oh how sweet
Salvation unites on heaven's shore
Yesterday's gone, tomorrow brings more
Only a moment in time we wait
Until we meet at heaven's gate
Moments of quiet stillness
Each one a glittering
Diamond to the soul
At least once a day
To visit the silence
Open your heart
Nurture your dreams.
If I were to write about love
I would start with a word
I remember before my grandmother died
she would recomend
I get a job in the writing world
the acting world
and then she's gone.......
I remember the rain....
how one life affects another.....
if i were to write about love....
i would start with a word....
Pretty pink pansies soothe searing souls; seek them; take walks.
Offerings of friendship to another can distract depressive thoughts; open your heart.
Evoking visions of amusing moments, absorb melancholy; envision funny times.
Talk about something else, like tantalizing taste buds, instead of tumbling into misery.
Depression debilitates, destroys, discourages, and devours; design a pleasure plan.
Escape the misery; elevate merriment with music; sing and dance.
Serenity takes practice; so get started; find a serene spot in a garden; watch for sparkles.
Take time to pamper yourself; go to the spa or read a good book; relish positives.
Relax at home or sit in a mall and watch the world go by; DO NOT SHOP!
Overspending can lead to deeper depression; develop internal joys one thought at a time.
Yesterday is gone. So, forget about it. Today is a new day; make a fresh start.
Everything has a time and a season; trusting in God can help with anticipation anxiety.
Remember to grow and learn from every life experience both positive and negative.
After all, we are privileged to be on Earth where we can learn and grow, each day.
Never give up on yourself, no matter what; forgive yourself for mistakes; stay strong.
Determine to succeed at gladness; replace sad thoughts with happy ones…intentionally.
Demons can creep into one’s life; be sure to replace them with Heavenly hosts;
Enrich your soul with scripture study and silent prayers; find fellowship.
“Pretty is as pretty does,” was a common saying back in the day; see your prettiness.
Remember that raindrops refresh all living things; let some fall on your face.
Exuberantly laugh as the wetness drips onto your tongue; breathe deeply, slowly.
Sunshine follows the rain both in nature and in life. Remember, depression will pass.
Seek your own path; one that holds your happiness, stay on that path, strongly.
Individual self-worth is a way of thinking; pick positive worthy people for friends.
Overcome depression one day at a time, one thought at a time, effervescently.
Now is the time to embark on your happy future, feel better soon…lovingly.

dear poets and poetesses.
Be a light to this world,

Never forgetting about history
Ensuring it does not repeat itself
Walking proudly into the future
Yesterday now becomes the past
Elevating the mind to new heights
Action plan created and working
Rising and meeting the new call!

I once knew this girl
who had no face at all.
Everytime she smiled
her world would start to fall.
She learned to hide
She learned to hate
She lost her hope
She lost her faith
The girl I thought I knew so well
Became my enemy.
The girl I thought I knew so well
was no stranger, it was me.

Cookies are addictive!
OoOoH! Here's one to snatch!
Okay...where's the chocolate chips?
Kraving too many of these treats
I want some now! But...I might get beeefy...
Every bite is mouthwatering, soft and crisp
Should I take another cookie?
Sense of humour, elevating our spirits
Musing over the simple things in life, rejoicing at what we find
Imagination stimulated, childlike, seeing the wonders in life
Light heartedness, laughing at one’s self!
Everything as it is meant to be, smiling, enjoying, the gift of life
Music calms the angry heart, its glorious rhythm penetrates the dark, the way I feel when the sound waves seep through my hair, consumes my soul with a suttle stare, my feet so happy, my body enriched with vibrations, my soul so at ease, I'm here for the taking.
I play from my experience, I put on a show, my hidden words entangled with the things that I know, smiles surround me, they glance by my feet, their inner beings amazed by my beat.
I beat my drums, I play my strings, they show me their affection, this is where I get my wings, they say I can fly, it seems I can soar, my music so perfect, they keep asking for more.
I do what I love, and they love what I do, music is my life, I am so happy that I can share it with you.
Glorious are the days we ride, my love.
You and I riding in the morning light.
Passions racing hearts are thundering.
Sunrise explodes pink and purple streaks across the sky.
You and I smiling, riding together in the first light.
Kindred spirits racing together chasing the morning star.
Intoxicated on the morning air.
Nowhere, but here in this moment.
Glorious is the day we ride.
Happiness is found within not in people and things
Acceptance of the present regardless of what fears/ inner demons you may be facing
Persistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us
Patience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials and tribulations life often presents to us, unexpectedly
Inside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a smile on your face
Never give up on yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart and a positive mind set
Endless love & happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay
Spirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural state of being
Smile in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward. Live as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow :) :) :)

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

Life is you and me, sometimes we wish to be free, but If we stop to think a minute, this is life and were in it, so dont take advantage of what we got, this is life so give it a shot, so go out there and show who you are, and stop wishing on that shinning star, because you can make that wish come true, this is life and its for you.
S-peak not the truth, pleasant or not,
I-n my mouth, silence resounds;
G-ive me your smile and not a frown,
N-od your head and I’ll understand.
L-ift up my spirit as I do the rest,
A-ccept me for what I am and my weaknesses,
N-eeding your special love, care and sweetness,
G-od rewards you a thousand folds if you can give.
U-pbeat so much of your capabilities,
A-ll of us have something to share;
G-uide me to make the stars not out of my reach,
E-nigma of my strength is you, my God’s gift.
Sign language helps you to understand me,
for I am a child who is a hearing impaired.
Note: I composed this poem lovingly dedicated to exceptional kids especially the HI. May God bless you all.
Sprawled under nightscape of galaxy bright
Tiny sequins pulse on blaze of luster,
A beaded stars nova bursts on flight
Into a full-blown montage, the lawns flicker
Reams of tales climb on visions lit by dappled view
While children’s breaths gleam of fantasy hayrides,
And fairies jut out from chapters to touch the hue
Yearning to blend into a ladder that divides
The seashore from a skyline blushing streams;
On one unmentionable lightness of firework glory
Tinseled rhinestones kindle hopes of angelic dreams,
Holding a cachet of flowered moon for bedtime story
Enchanted, their mother blows a peppermint kiss
Staring at gems waltzing high up on glittered air,
Threads of her locks meshed by twinkles of lullaby bliss
As graceful nebulae cuddle sweetened hours, ever fair
Rounding her infants, wonders of night magic sigh
Stars radiant dip into eyes; winking good night, goodbye!
For Gautami Phookan's Sweetest Touches Of Verse
By nette onclaud
Yesterday, snapshots of life framed the sky
All past timelines refilling mind’s pages;
My chapters from youth’s byways lingered, when
Troubles of identity reached a sharp peak. They
Seemed to question a need to conform, but
So undaunted was I to be my own imprint.
Far the miles my feet wished for something else,
Away from usual paths in need of new quests.
Now, I listen to spirit enlightening my days
It cradles a stillness borne out of reflection.
Looks like the rebel within has withered
As I embrace the beauty of today’s mellowing.
Though rough winds trigger anticipation
They're washed by night’s reckoning;
Here in a space of tenderness, I listen
To the rhythm of moon bouncing: paced twirls
Stay within my center with ease and compassion.
Oh snapshots drift as mere apparitions;
I enter light’s arc blazing, while fluid instincts
Believe the past has forged a sense of rebirth.
In calm acceptance, my heart cherishes this wisdom;
Yesterday brought forth the deliverance of my soul.

Now who would of thought the thoughts that would truly get the mind lost in fragile thought?
So much on our known life,
about unknown death when we laugh at others but at ourselves we really cry,
in our very own hidden truth lies,
amongst our own poeple who we defy,
until we fight,
for wrongs for personal rights,
**** the darkness is what make us appreciate the light,
I dont talk the talk nor do I walk the walk because I walk my talk while I swagger and swerve im my talks through these walks,
Life can get so messy with death that its time for those of us here to grab the broom so God can mop,
I live life to the fullest with what little I have because I dont have a lot,
I live life shitty sometimes like almost everyone else like it or not,
Im not special Im so unique Im individual with word talent I know I got,
I know what I dont have so its important more knowledge among me is sought,
I can be wrong half the time but can still make it 100% right I was self-taught among a young soul that seems to be bought,
I got a bad limp but dont get me wrong I can still gallup through darkness while I jog lost in the early morning fog waiting to be patiently found in the midnight lounge where I trot,
Truly lost so easily in profound hard thoughts litterally running from the cops waiting to duck and dodge from open gunshots,
Bodies and shells drop where caskets are made among a dying crop,
I can still make a splatter where there was just but a tiny dot,
I used to have merely nothing now atleast I can truly say I have a safe spot,
I was found looking for truth in lies lost in thought....
Am I the only one who's feeling there is something very wrong with all of this ,
I can't seem to get anybody to listen not even when I raise my fist.
How can they not see what I see ,has everybody lost thier mind I say,
Why can't they see what it is that is making them act this way.
Have you taken a look around to see there's something that has changed,
When you look into peoples eyes Lord how you can see the rage.
No compassion for thier fellow man as if they have never ever cared,
For the future of mankind and how we all should be aware.
Saw a friend of mine the other day he was acting a little strange ,
I can't help but wonder just when , how , and who's the blame.
This power and greed is consuming us all we just can't seem to stop
Stepping on our brothers & sisters as we race to the top.
Where's the love ,the kindness ,the hope and faith we use to live by,
How we allowed ourselves to sink so low I' will never know why.
Still I will contunue to spread the word which has always been,
Be good and love one another as you are learning not to sin.
Please don't be another wreck that has been pushed to the side ,
If you' listen to the one and only word you will know why.
We will all band together so we can stand tall and free,
It is one simple word and that is love how could you nor see.
< Better grab out the coco-butter
Even those designer shades
All hearts will begin to flutter
Cause were off to the glades
Hear me right for I did not stutter
Best hurry up before the sun fades
Look for keys later father did utter
All aboard now we got it made
Nothing like ocean's viewing I rather smother
Knowing once again to return upon it's raid
Each and every year oh my brother
Think I will even bring the poor old maid
Because she's like no other
In her class she passes the grade
Now get your head out of the gutters
Grow up cause noone is getting laid
Oh my goodness good crothers

Growing old to some may mean dying;
Relinquishing the attributes of youth.
Once we become seventy or eighty,
What more of life's left; is this true?
I feel young and happy on the inside
No regrets, I've been blessed, each day's new.

Oh, but I still feel life's joys, just like you!

in this time of day,
see the universe through my eyes.
shines so bright like stars,
you follow me,
no matter where you be,
you're always there,
the most mystical sight by far.
Every time I see you,
I make a wish whenever a star goes by,
what I want to do,
is to have the will to fly,
I would fly into your world,
for you are the moon that shines in my eyes.
Fly into the galaxy,
beyond in my memories.
The universe is amazing,
a place to be free,
a sight of wonders,
a sight of endless colors spreads wide,
I see your world,
just by a glare at the moon looking straight into my eyes .

Embracing Earth I write this poem
Me, looking at the morning glowing
Being lost in flowers and trees
Reeling from life’s mystery
Air all filled with sweet bird song
Clearly it’s where I belong
Inspired By all life’s mystic charm
Nicely filled with peace and calm
Gleaming, feeling free from harm
Embracing Earth, I feel life’s power
And all those magic colored flowers
Really, they’re so beautiful
The sun shines down as the rain does fall
While fish swim in the shiny pool.

I am human,
aware of imperfection,
even through different races,
their misunderstanding and affections.
My name means bravery,
to stand against fears,
to hide my tears,
to fight off my misery.
My name means to understand,
we all look different,
but we all live in the same world,
the same as our human hands.
My name means to live,
travel in the earth's air,
nothing can compare,
to my freedom will.
Life is unfair and that's fine,
Life is hard, but it's mine,
my mind is my domain,
I may look different, but my beliefs will stay the same,
even in my own grave,
you all will remember my name.

Entry For Dakarai Cobb's
The Sonnet Man's Acrostic Challenge
Sensing each step I persuade my body onward and up.
Trekking up toward the light that adorns a precious cup,
Angels around sing gentle sounds, I never heard before.
Imagining the beauty that awaits me past that golden door,
Reality sets in that I am rising upward to Heaven’s gate.
Why oh why, have I been chosen to be given this fate.
Again I see the Angels floating past my mortal soul.
Yelling praises to him, our Lord, I met a mortal goal.
Truth is what they said, even though I had sinned many ways.
Only the living truth will deliver you upward, glorious praise.
These steps I take I see all my sins on each tread that I take.
Hearing forgiven, forgiven, my soul gets lighter upon the wake.
Evangelical songs being sung, I pray, in his name, for my sake.
Stairway brightens as I reach the top, hearing a question, I stop.
Tell me, your saviors name, He who died upon the hilltop.
Angels await my answer, tis a simple question that he does say.
Reveling, Jesus I say, he took our sins, saving all upon that day.
Seeing in my heart, I believed, he said come forth, cross over this way.
Silent servants of the night unseen
Employed in task of uplifting men
Rendering to none evil for evil, send
Victory where brokenness had been.
Indefatigable humility, inexhaustible kindness
Christ-centered love glowing with light
Each so blessed alone knows true delight.
Rich are the sunsets that overcomes blindness
Earth's heroes unsung recorded there
Willing hearts and willing hands will give from nothing
Awaiting nothing, except the award of the king
Rewarded for labor as for each quiet tear
Drained from the soul awaken by another's woe
Servants now served where God's glory glow.
Teach me, Lord, my lips to speak in soft, sweet tones
That will not bruise a fellow traveler's wound
Give me ears to listen and to hear those who groans
Hands to lift a brother who adversity ruined
Eyes to find them where in winter's wrath they are strewn
Heart to hug them, love to save them, and I
All of me in willingness to fight and for your cause to die
That in my life your cross shall be lifted shown.
O kind Master, and when I am tired and weary let me find
Rest in you, and to unthankfulness make me blind.
H-ave a very Happy New Year
A-nd I just want to wish you a wonderful one with
P-rosperity and good health sent from me to you,may
P-leasure,joy and love be in your heart now that
Y-ou are embarking in this brand-new one.
N-ew year is almost here again and
E-nd of the old one, it may be hard to say good-bye to, but with God's help,
W-onder and look forward to new one now that
Y-ou know it's almost here, with many hopes and dreams,and with
E-xpectations so many,O yes, that's right! Now that you are
About to see that big ball at midnigth fall at the count of one,so go ahead, and
Relax and enjoy this most wonderful journey into this brand- new one.
Dorian Petersen Potter
Bountiful castles with walls of sand
Each grain an intricate part
Albatross squawk in high demand
Con morsels from those with soft hearts
Hot bodies bask in the blazing sun
Bikinis boast dangerous curves
Lifeguards patrol tanned to well done
As surfers show off their steel nerves
Nautical transports battle the swells
Kites soar aloft dot the sky
Enveloped in rays and happy kid yells
Transfers to a new level high
Blankets of color protect fragile skin
Immense weight of stress melts away
Nod off gently and try to imagine
Going to work every day
On a beach where work is like play
Beach Blanket Bingo contest
Tomorrow is another day
Outstretch your wings and fly
Milestones can be reached
Only if you beleive in thy self
Relic in the thought
Relax your mind and soul
Or it just won't happen
Will be put off and forgotten
Instead of achieving set goals
So bask under the sun
Ask for a little help from above
Never doubt miracles from God
Or question His motives
To make things happen
Hunger will disapate
Every plate shall be filled
Rejoice and sing aloud
Dance to your hearts content
Another sunrise is coming
You're going to just love to see
Favorable and a faithful young lady indeed! She’s compassionate, bright, positive, confident, easygoing, single-minded and humble (unlike Charity) and she’s the mother of Joy’s niece!
(I won’t tell you all her name…I’ll leave it as an anonymous thing until later on of course)
A pretty, prudent, humble and joyous individual, bearing all of the traits her sisters lack: hope, joy, charity, and so much more! Above all, this is the trait she builds up before she passes away: TRUE, GENUINE, & TREASURABLE LOVE <3
I believe she evidently found the love in her life…a boy that’s poor in the world’s standards, but rich in heart…he shares most of the traits she has and he has some she doesn’t have…and vise versa! They were like two peas in a pod and they were destined to be with each other for eternity (strangers to best friends to a cute, charming couple)!
Tranquilizing like a violin her voice is! She’s a surprise at every corner! She has a priceless, graceful voice greater than many! She’s unpredictable and untamed with enthusiasm and curiosity (much like her daughter) and takes it on another level!
Has a hilarious side of her, though she’s too bashful about it getting out of control in front of everyone, including some of her family and friends . . . She brushes her hair to try to let go of the embarrassment she feels inside; likewise, she’s grooming away the gloom in her solitary bedroom and wants her sister, Charity, to reflect upon her for one (she feels left out when she’s hanging around her because she’s self-centered and doesn’t notice her, only herself)! She refuses and breaks her heart, once pumping with plenty of effulgent, extra-incredible exuberance – thanks a thousand for your ignorance, Charity! Have a giving heart like Faith, thumping with triumph, thundering wonder and thanksgiving! All 4 of the sisters should gather and preserve faith forevermore!
A man is sleeping in a bed
Sleeping , when he should be awake
Evolving a body in coldness, when he wakes up
Emotions of a curious mind
Kind thoughts of a distant happiness
Ears stretching to the childrens laughing outside
Rules of eternity struggles with his lonely mind
Sanity´s sanctuary is the longing of his heart
Swimming in oceans of philosofies
Embracing the Hope, when he´s looking at the sky
Enough faith to let the hope grow
Killing old selfpity of the past
Irresistable in his affection on humble hearts
Nagging novice noise is far away
Glad, when he finally found the right ways at last
S sunshine so enticing
U unfolding adventures abound
M melodies bellow all around
M more time for free flow of thought
E endless energy embodies me
R reving the engine so I can be free
Love is pure beauty...at least, that's what I thought at first...don't spend your time unwisely, searching for temporary love that's sugar-coated and fake...love is an unbreakable vow
Oh! But, I wanna experience love at first sight (OH STOHP WHINING) - I need to have a faithful mate very badly, but I must remain self-controlled and patient, for the time will come!
Vibrant sun smiles down on me...sun rays warm my heart of affection and heartfelt emotions - hatred is an unwanted guest! An annoying pest! It envies our everlasting love, blossoming like a flower in spring
Enlivened by your innocence and pleasurable friendship - does she truly love me or is is just my impossible-to-achieve dream I dream...caught under your wicked spell! You're an enchanting oath that I don't..loathe
You judge me because you don’t like my hair
You judge me because of my birthmark
You judge me because I am fat
You judge me because I look different
You judge me because I don’t have “swag”
You judge me because I am not the richest
You judge me because I don’t have the nicest things.
You want me to change my hair?
You want me to get rid of my birthmark?
You want me to lose weight?
You want me to look normal?
You want me to have swag?
You want me to be came the richest?
You want me to have the nicest things?
Well guess what I love my hair!
I love my birthmark!
I love that I am not skinny!
I love that I don’t have swag!
I love that I am not the richest!
I love that I don’t have the nicest things!
And I am not changing for no one !
Inside of you.
Stop and see too.
When the angels sang so long ago, the world was forever changed!
CHRIST CHILD BORN OF A VIRGIN
Heralded by angels
Inexplicable good news
Savior born this night
Tidings of great joy
Come, let us see this thing which the Lord
Hath made known unto us
Infant, so tender and mild
Lord of Lords
Deity above all others
Born in the city of David
Opening a virgin's womb
No end to His Kingdom
Open your heart to Him
Fall prostrate before Him
I say unto you
Give praise to Him
Intone prayers to Him
Now is the day of salvation

Tenaciously clinging to hope
Surrendered to His will
has no place here
On the bridge
Prayer and desire…
Cherish the new born king
Hark the herald and
Ring the toll bells
It's Christmas time again and
Santa is on his way as the
Tinsel is strewn and mistletoes are hung
Mama got caught once again
Alone kissing a guy dressed in red
So I dashed to my window and through open the shutters
Looking upon the roof
Over and over again I somehow now
Vow to remain true in
Even believing in this little Christmas tale of a hymn
Merry Christmas To All Soupers And Staff

I’m not blaming you…
Pretend I have not had the
Privilege of hearing those
Lines before. Tell me.
Eternal glare on my
Sunglasses, which I wear at night.
Only an annoyance…
Never to be worried about.
When with you, I feel like
An ice pick could go
Ear and into my brain, and I’d experience a similar
Reaction. I’d like to
Go drink cheap wine and
Lay in the back of my truck, on an old mattress.
Sing anything—as long as it’s
Santana…or soft Slipknot…
I feed my love hunger in sad songs
I stop living my life in the shadows of my sorrow
I enjoy the happiness in small things
I'm calling sometimes the loneliness
I need myself back and I miss...You
I'm a dreamer and I hope the peace will follow ...The World.
Pause a moment for Jesus
Asked not why
Solance is golden
Solidarity is the key
Obscurity becomes nil
Victory shall be ours
Eternal flame flickers
Relic in thy body of Christ our Lord
Paulette knew he'd love the present and
Excitedly watched as he carefully took the box
And opened the lid to reveal, her heart inside
Crepe paper surrounded it, gently holding an
Echocardiogram of her love for him
Only last month, she was wheeled into the E.R.
Now, the doctors said her prognosis was good
Edward pulled the strip from the crepe nest
And, alternated between it, and Paulette's smile
Realizing that many years of her love lay ahead
To wrap him, full, in life's greatest gift
How could he adequately express his happiness?
People oft lose their lighted sight
Each winter solstice that annums around
As days shrink some benevolence cooled
Credit given where credit should not be found
Economy trumps our brotherhood's cards
On the holiday morning, when all is spread
Near tree, menorah, prayer rug, symbol iconic
Equal time, regarding the desolate neighbor
As joys of family and friends ring the room
Reaching inside ourselves can we reach
To express the love our God implores
Helping to remember, peace on Earth
Pomegranates and oranges sluice sweet tang
Even as members gather and sleepily greet
Adults sit, small children excitedly flit about
Carefully examining tags, boxes and stockings
Eagerly they plead with eyes for permission
Once you were that young too...that magical
Now you point and sip tea or coffee, and smile
Every generation brings its own traditions
As a talisman to the next's memories to come
Rife with sentiment, are day's mellow memories
To ancient minds in some far future times
Hardly believing that all those years transpired

"God bless us, everyone" - Tiny Tim
for those unfamiliar...
The ocean seems so relaxing when you hear the wave
Healing sounds that can clean a soul and save
Even when the waves brings in an unknown
Dodging the sadness can be shown
And the things become more easy
None will dance with balance so steady
Can a person by the ocean feel free of fright
Embarking conquest with passion that last in the day and night
Out on the beach on the sand we dance on a spot
For we hold our friends and an family a lot
Tricky the waves move with a trance each day
Hardly understandable to what I have to say
Even when the wind pushes the water most
Onto the sand by the ocean cost
Cites that people love to see and use as a passionate source
Even when it the wind blows the ocean waves set a different course
And finely the wave pulls back and forth in a lash
Notes that make music in every ones ear with a splash
Powerful words to bring into sentences
Raining out delight to recieve to God
Aiming towards a good way of life
Yielding to the truth
Isolated from the world's way of life and excepting God's the Creator
Nurturing in a new way of maturity and changing our attitudes
Gouging out the knowledge generously given by God
How did I breathe before you were near?
Each lonely feeling made to disappear.
Listening to your voice is music so sweet.
Looking upon you my heart skips a beat.
Oh how this feeling changes my life.
Lost in this moment I know no pain or strife.
Our joy and promise I am certain of;
Victorious union written in stars above.
Everything I am, I give you my love.

Ascending on my own
Lamenting positively while no one's around
Orbiting and subsiding
Negotiating with my imaginary ghosts
Eager to reach my goals
She looked at me with her eyes
Healing everything even my lies
Even when I am descending
She never gives me an ending
All becomes peaceful with no pain
Not pushing her away I gain
Acting if she is my own
Never she is harder than stone
Generating pure spirit is a cure
Evening lights shine so pure
Love of all things she holds
Some love stands in time so bold
Picky child I was
before & still am as
I’m writing this
picky, petite poem –
I am different
now…I’ve changed for
the better, though
it was a challenging
Clever and cheery
teenager I am in the
present and past,
getting used to
foods I once didn’t
Kangaroos hop with
hope happily, tigers
hunt wildly &
sneakily, cats meow
for people food & to
receive a feel-good
dogs yap for
(dependent, little &
big buddies), ants
gather & work, flies
hover around a heap
of droppings, debris
attack & laugh their
tails off, wolves
get into their
private packs, fish
swim playfully with
the family, gofers
barrel & eat up the
veggies from my
garden, cheetahs run
at full speed,
finches chirp their
dolphins go with the
wave’s ascending &
rabbits hop & chew
RAWR & laze around
on fields of golden
grace, bears huddle
with cubs & hide in
walk about on the
savannas & tons of
terrains much like
California in some
sense, lambs graze
looking eagerly for
around on the
kitchen & bathroom
floor, bedbugs bite
for the sake of
their sick appetite,
etc. ; is there
something new to
learn every night
and day? (The answer
is yes by deh way) I
guess I have to do
some research and
explore some more on
these subjects –
that’s my next
Yet, I still go back
to my picky, old,
innocent habits –
picking foods that I
cherish most and I
implore for more
that I can hardly
ignore & boast about
it more and more
till my mouth
becomes sore! SCORE!
(means SUCCESS!, I
nailed it, or other
L.. augh - a - minute
Y..ou are mine xx
Never ending love

fires me up with
painful passion – he
hands me one of his

didn't expect this
at all . . . he
caught me before I
was gonna make an
embarrassing fall -
thank you, fuzzy
friend for helping
me stand tall and
Ahh! Look at his
talons…his claws rip
through human flesh
by the name of Spy
Jaggerswag, has a
desire to hunt down
anything that moves;
he even chews up
roaches when he sees
them, crawling about
on the forest floor
or on a forest tree
Giving Spy his meal
with boldness by
throwing it into his
big bowl, he runs
hungrily towards his
bowl and devours it
in seconds with one
bite literally – I
hesitate with sudden
fear…ooh…at least it
wasn’t a chunk of
me, right? He won’t
eat me up – I’m his
vicious and spiteful
at times - run with
your might - let me
race you to see who
wins - this will be
totally tight! We're

lack of light, but
we're not succumbed
to fright, alright?

wildness I must add!
His coat is as black
as midnight and his
eyes penetrate my
soul – green and
yellow with twisted,
and blazing angst
Ah yes, he has a
good side of him
nevertheless – he’s
as harmless as a
kitten and I massage
ebony fur with
and I have no fear
when he’s near my
side – he saves me
trouble and he’s not
a foe, but he’s a

of him – he doesn’t
intimidate me, but
still catches me off
guard and I tease
him back…we do play
pretty rough no
doubt about that!
RAWRZ! He sneaks
right behind me,
scaring me out of my
wits – that silly,
gigantic cat! He’s
but he does have a
bit of spunk and
awesomeness in him!
I thank Spy for not
having me for his
feast – he’s burly,
brave and beast!
dedicated to my
buddy/big black cat
by the name of Spy.
He's one of my
favorite pets of all
time. No joke!
Snuggled deep beneath my sheets,
Imaginary thoughts electrify my heart beat,
Lacy dresses that shimmer and shine,
Eight days away from work flutter through my mind,
Necklacesess and rings dipped in white gold,
Time is ticking; my patience fits a child’s mold.
Neighborhood lights twinkle through my frosted blinds,
Illuminating my bedroom walls with colorful Christmas designs,
Gradually my lids grow heavy, while I attempt one more peep,
Hoping that the dancing snowflakes outside my window the ground will decide to keep,
Telling myself tomorrow mornings will come faster if I fall asleep.
Bow down to blissful feelings and noons well-spent
Listen for a moment if you have time for my pleas
I feel bliss once again, showering upon me like a waterfall fo wonderfulness
Soaring too high in the current of the aqua-blue sky
Swallowed up in my lonely tide, but this alienated ambition sheds bliss upon me - solitude has no reason or excuse to interfere with my happiness (what are you waiting for? Fight back!)
Another year slips away
Put on like 30 pounds
Pertty hard to take off
You see I like sea food I see it and eat it
Now with muse in hand
Even Jenny Crank has stepped up to the plate
With how to shed 14 inches off waistline in 1 week
You first have to eat 2 bars of exlax chocolate of course
Even choke down some of grannys castrol oil
Ass will be sore for a little while
Remember though the box and bottle does say warning

When I made this piece of art
I realize it was to test my creative skill
Reviewing what I can do with wire part
Even when the part does not stay still
The swerving of wire
Hard to bend the way I wanted
Ended up hurting my hand and setting it on fire
Grinding my teeth to hide my pain that was what I intended
I realize how hard it is to bend things to make a shape
Removing ins and outs that is in consistent
After all the debate in my head I had a headache
For some reason I created an animal shape I felt content
Feelings ran in my mind that I was satisfied with my Art
Even when I felt tired and in dismay i did not part
Showering new flakes over the land
Now opening sites of white blankets
Over wide lands and valleys to ski
Winter’s snow is ever falling for me
Dedicated to the memory of my poet friend Ralph Zimmer who was a member of
Hope is all I believe
Opportunity up your sleeve
Prosperity on the rise
Eternity never dies
Charity to others means giving to you
Helping all fellow (wo)man is part of the plan
Righteousness existing in you be the clue
Integrity to self above everything else
Spiritual intent must be in cement
This will save the earth giving new birth
Jesus Christ what more must I say?
Earthly bound fear is nothing to steer
Sex is used to keep hold of you
Utterly lustful desire leads to fire
Suffering this state tough one to equate
Behind the scene I will do my part.
Endeavoring to work with all of my heart.
Helping where I see the need.
I will do my best to plant a seed.
Never complaining or speaking harsh,
Doing my best right from the start.
Teaching others how to work together.
Holding on to integrity in every matter.
Encouraging others one by one.
Sowing good seed till the day is done.
Choosing always to make wise choices.
Enjoying the journey along the way.
Nurturing others from day to day.
Ending this poem with a big “Hooray”.
Jubilance is key to living a good and happy life! Live life to the fullest with me! Man, I can relate to you! We all go through our ups and downs! I wish you good luck and fortune in this life.
Umm…I’m speechless – you make me smile all the way! You make my day, buddy! Can you help me stay on track? I'm thankful that you got my back and got rid of the debt stack!
And…I’d like to ask you – Can you sprinkle your salt and pepper upon my distasteful flavor? In other words, can you inspire me to run the extra mile? Can you set my passion aflame and help me to stay strong till the end? You are the light on the surface of the chaotic ocean…
Never stop believing and trying with all of your might – run and take flight until you reach the finish line! We will both thrive if we just strive…I can see you’re running fast and hard just by the sweat of your brow! Wow, you amaze me by your talents…WOW!
(Hope you liked my somewhat weird poem!)
Crawling, furry pet
Aggressive, yet so lovable
Trying to get any sign of attention and winning it
No worries planted in their feeble brains
Attractive and a clever animal
Pleasurable extra family member, always keeping me busy!
Assured to find a muse
Penmenship must be at its best
Relaxation and motivation is needed
Inspirations will be its bounty
Let the world discover its tale

So, party with me in this passionate, illuminated night; there’s a disco ball hanging by the last thread – off with your head if you don’t fight what I call the greatest fight – stand tall and give it your all and you’ll stay by my side this shining night! Shimmer anew like fresh drops of dew on the green, green grass, for the grass on the other side of the hill is fading away into desert land….dry with remorse, hot with discord, getting outtah course, the expense – they must afford without uttering a single sound-of-a-word! Release your wings from bondage’s chains and take wing out of your captivity’s cold chambers that buried under by the snow of the perilous past!~ I lost my hopeful speeches that has been tucked into my memory files…We need a happily ever after after all! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! You kill’d me inside and out and I won’t pout like a child, running about! You killed me with your lonesome song and I have no slight doubt about that, if you know what I am speaking of no doubt! Are you damaged by your suicidal depression? Do you have any clue what I’ve been through? Anxiety took a toll on you – you’re in its session…it’s controlling you like a puppet, doing whatever the puppet master tells it to do! You are fenced in by the absence of hope and the approval of avarice appeal! Ignorant to the time, drifting away from your grasp! You hold your breath and you gasp! At last, you understand how important it is to immediately dispose of your expense! Just reap what you sow and pay up for your sins! Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or hives! For some odd reason, I love uneven numbers…some say they love even numbers, but whatever suits their fancy, or as I say it, whatever floats their demented boats!!
Nicely paints the sky.

P is the third part of Expense, the acrostic series.......
Practically, my cup is half full instead of half empty, but I am proven
wrong! I’m swimming in the river of my emotional debt mixed with other
distinctive debts…doused in drastic dread! Is this reality in a nut shell or is
this frankly living hell? Where does your high spirits truly dwell? Keep in
clean, you gutter mind of a foolish man in PRISON for committing HURTFUL
crimes – he has to pay up so much – his expense is SKY-HIGH, but he is
not shy to pay it up and he longs to fly again with un-tattered wings, but
fails greatly due to HIS poor decision making…who knows why he did the
things he did, which leads to his ultimate consequence – his absence of
life…the aftershocks of his death still haunts the prison to the extreme-est
of the extreme! He haunts and taunts all that come in – once you’re in, you
never, ever come out no matter what! My noggin is runnin’ wild in circles
and my mind is whirling like a seething storm that’s body-quaking me…
controlling me like a steel-made robot…these particular pangs of regrets
makes my guilty conscience overflow with low self-esteem and anguish…
lamentation has fallen upon us all! We all must stand tall…remember to
brave & hop over our obstacles optimistically and assertively like a horse
during his training for the biggest race he has ever trampled into! Do you
have any clue what I’ve been through? My notions that are spinning around
in my brain is like the vegetables, water & the spices, mixing well & swell
into a stew, restoring peace to my verse…Is my life a gift or a curse? Is my
life overflowing with mirth? I wish I can give a portion of it on Earth to
avoid making destructive actions…I need several tragedies in reverse to
settle me down and make complete my fulfillments! Deplorable Reality’s
strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey
dens or hives! I’ve been losing my mind since the day of my birth and so on
and so forth! Need I say more? I have so many research projects to
explore! There is so much GOLD to find! Maybe I’m just a boy, tattered,
torn and sadly, blind! I hope you don’t mind, Lord – forgive me, oh Lord of
Accord! I need to just forget and forgive the past & move forward in the
guiltless future! I NEED TO RUN THE EXTRA MILE LIKE A RUNNER, REACHING
TO THE FINISH LINE! Give me the strength to move on! Deplorable Reality’s
strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey
dens or hives! I WANT TO RUN THE EXTRA MILE LIKE A RUNNER, REACHING
TO THE FINISH LINE AND I’M FEELIN’ FINE WITH MY HEART, POUNDING
WITH DREAD-LESS AND UNEXPIRED DETERMINATION…NOT EVEN TIRED….
OH no, not at all – I run with my pack of wolves and I’m as sturdy as a
wall, giving it my all…
E is the beginning of EXPENSE, the acrostic series.......
Expensive…Imagination caught my eye…I couldn’t afford losing you badly,
even if you’re worth is worth a pair of decent-looking shoes, but what are
really made of in the inside? Slip your feet inside my shoes for one moment in
your life…for all my life, I was left with a mystery with absolutely no clues…do
I have to find my way out of my solitary dorm? The ghosts are jeering at me
and intimidating me again and again and again and again… scaring me out of
my boots! No one gives any hoots! Untangle me from the comforting shell of
fatality – a story let to tell! You’re only a phony fool, in other words, a
worthless, inadequate tool! I’m climbing the Mountain of Gracious Glory,
gaining back my alienated ambition – I know where the wicked wind flows –
it flows in the land of milk and honey…it sweeps something grand into my
brain and seeps inside of my wobbly body altogether…it marinates in my brain
signals and I receive thoughts of endless sensations and luminous notions!
Deplorable Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees
out of their honey dens or hives! My noggin is runnin’ wild in circles and my
mind is whirling like a seething storm that’s body-quaking me…controlling me
like a steel-made robot…these particular pangs of regrets makes my guilty
conscience overflow with low self-esteem and anguish…lamentation has fallen
upon us all! We all must stand tall…remember to brave & hop over our
obstacles optimistically and assertively like a horse during his training for the
biggest race he has ever trampled into! Do you have any clue what I’ve been
through? My notions that are spinning around in my brain is like the
vegetables, water & the spices, mixing well & swell into a stew, restoring
peace to my verse…Is my life a gift or a curse? Deplorable Reality’s strategic
tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of their honey dens or
hives! I’m climbing the Mountain of Gracious Glory, gaining back my alienated
ambition – I know where the wicked wind flows – it flows in the land of milk
and honey…that’s where you and I will flee!
Floating and flying in the night
All that I see, can it be, a magical sprite?
I follow her through a foggy, damp wood
Red and brown leaves sprinkle my cloak's hood
Yes, I now know that fairies are real
Running and jumping with joy, my soul's wounds heal
Earthly beings that no one else sees
All is calm in the forest, only the buzzing wings of bees
Love cannot hurt me for this moment I hold near
My sorrow has left me, the world I no longer fear
The name says it all!
Black symbolizes darkness.
People's mind are filled with madness.
pushing, shoving, pulling .
Sleeping in front of stores what for?
Prices are cheaper but is it worth the struggle.
You're taking hold of our people.
Lord take control!!
There's something much greater, that's taking the focus off of you.
When you're the one who gives us the health to work and strength to go on.
You have strong hold on our people and need to let go.
Cause our reedimer lives.

Every one of you must listen carefully to me.
Time told a story that we all began to mimic.
Each day became the same, losing our Ta Da.
Rightfully we all went separate ways and far.
Not one, but two kept your hopes by praying.
Amazing watching them go and watching all!
Like you I was in disbelief without my Ta Da.
Goodness gracious Lord Almighty I made it in.
Rare I tell you all marveling too when I’m near.
Astonishing sights left behind but ahead a gate.
Come here come now Wallah wants me to meet,
Especially conquering this amazing life of fate!

Hancing your life to further points.
Applying yourself to more conjoints.
Proud of life and your self-esteem
Proud of you following your dream.
I am trying to hold up my dreams.
Now I am looking at what seems
Something great, like happiness.
X is the second part of EXPENSE, the acrostic series.......
X-tremely NOT un-cheap! X-ray my pain that’s been going off track like a
wacko, kid’s train…you got me sidetracked and distracted on the road of
ecstatic paradise & entangled reverie… it drives me to insanity & I’m
unfortunately slipping into the next languishing, lament-cemented, little
driven insane – if only you would look through my pain-staking pane…you
aren’t pensive, but rather judgmental and loud as hell on Mount Heavens!
Passion in me rots & it wasn’t ripened with rose-beauty & reserved reverie…
I’m climbing the Mountain of Gracious Glory, gaining back my alienated
ambition – I know where the wind do blow…it sweeps something grand into
my brain and seeps inside of my body altogether…it marinates in my brain
signals and I receive thoughts of endless sensations and brilliant ideas!
Reality’s mere demise ripens my rage, intimately concealed inside of me…
yet, I am looking up at His sun-quenched sight and I appreciate His
that bestow happiness upon my lips, ascending them into a knitted smile of
heavenly approval and bringing me to my delicious haven…Deplorable
Reality’s strategic tragedy stings like billion’s of buzzin’ busy bees out of
honey dens or hives! God has a way with words & Jesus Christ has a way
His words…It’s extraordinary how Moses led the people to the Promiseland,
despite the hardships they encountered with before they got what they
looking for & everything there made them dance merrily & it was divine
shelter, protected and looked after by God, Most High of the Highest
Beyond Limitless Levels Above US All! It’s brilliant how Noah made the Ark
save the animals and his family and friends with God’s helping hand and led
them to the grandest land of all! God is good and gracious forevermore!
is REMARKABLE beyond measure…better than all of our pleasures combined
into one! The most powerful, loving Creator of all time! No one can beat
Not even Satan himself – compared to God, he is a scrawny little rat,
by his tail by the Cherished Cat! Every move I make….every dollar I spend…
every time I waste time…every time you lie to me instead of telling me the
truth of the situation you’ve encountered or the stories you share with a
smile of glee pasted on your moon-shaped face, I always find myself
out of reason and logic!! Doused in drastic, darkening dread!! ~
Remember you are never truly alone
Enjoy the talents you possess and share them.
Learn from your mistakes and grow in faith.
Invite others to smile, to love, to be unselfish.
Equally distribute the message and your kindness.
Find relief in knowing you are with God.
Nothing is always the answer.
Everything is sometimes an enhancer.
Value the most important things.
Raise your voice, and say something not too vengeance.
Talk to seomeone who's enough to trust.
Often say things that densest.
Love just enough to be the greatest.
Amaze the surroundings and be the smartest.
Tuition for this world.
Easy as can be.
Only one life to live;guard it jealously.
Deadly,painful and discouraging are thoughts of the past.
Evaluating and remunerating on past misdeeds will break you down.
Tell sweet good stories of past experiences.
Only recount past achievements to move you forward.
Happy are those that plan within their limits.
Abstain from excesses;as this could be overbearing on your income.
Plan your resources very well to include all essential things.
Place a seal on a percentage of your income that will be permanently on resrve.
Intoxicating is excessive spending;avoid it.
Never venture into projects that are above your means.
Emulating friends,colleagues and acquaintances,will surely ruin you.
Shy away from gambling,betting and high risk investments,that will run you
Save for the rainy day.
Gemini is the third astrological sign traits show they are

Mercury is their ruling planet And they are
Imaginative to say the least

Inquisitive intellectual and mentally oriented minds

Tribute To The
Shelter here sweet child of fragile soul.
Take refuge from those raging
Rapids of life, threatening to
Overpower and drown you in misery.
Navigate your way past the taunting
Ghosts of past regrets and
Turn to Me once more.
Open the swollen eyes of your sorrow
Weary one and come hither.
Embrace My forgiveness and fear not;
Run to Me and I will welcome you home.
Don't try to control things that are beyond you because,
Eventually they will consume your inner
Soul. Always try to do right, allow your visions and not your
Thoughts to guide you when you can no longer trust your
Inner self. For you to may fall to the temptation of evil.
Never think about what you should of done because,
You are the one that has to answer.

A collaboration w/Audrey Carey
On the Arabian Desert, I deeply burned my skin
Venturing out this strange land of hooded prince
Endless sleepless nights, mother serves, with tea
Rushing into the basement, to iron master’s plea
Singapore, a three steps, from our wooden door
Every morning, sister’s scrubbing a marble floor
As, she listen to silent cries, of younger brothers
Sailing, day and night, in seven seas of thunders!
Feeding our worn minds, with courage and love
Inspire us, with your words, O, Father up above!
Let your holy spirit guide us, from dawn to dawn
I beg you; protect us, including siblings, at home
Pampering the young and the old, of the G-Eight
In return, my true Master, for you, I will not be late
Now, sons and daughters, of Pearl of Orient Sea
Of things, be honest and true, and as always be!
Working diligently; for it is in your noble blood
Overcoming all the trials, have your faith in God
Run not embracing the edge, of sharp-blade knife
Keep the spirits high; for it’s just a temporary life
Even if, you are, mean workers, in foreign realms
Ruin not, your dignity, with these pieces of dimes
Sisters and brothers, live proud, O precious mine!
Dedicated to all OFW
..for your courage and sacrifices in helping keep
the economy of our motherland afloat. Mabuhay!
A walk in the clouds.
Is what we all need to see heaven's holy city.
Where our pain and trials are no more.
Our tears gone forever,because we can see our Lord.
In the clouds where we can see His love all around, shining like the sun over a
rainbow after the summer rain.
That brings us a cool breeze and drops of rain.
On the rose that blooms and leaves us the sweet smell of love.
That is endless and tenderness that only Jesus can show.
So take a walk in the clouds closer to Jesus love.
Greater is He that sits upon the Throne.
Omnipotent is our Lord God alone.
Devoted is he and ever true, forever I will serve you.
A blessed greeting, intended, for all
How sweet it is, for, it comes from my soul
Of my acceptance, of you, depart not, from my call
Let not your ignorance, of me, betray your own soul
Your earthly knowledge, depend not, lest you fall
Kiss me in spirit, as I greet you, with a holy kiss
Inspire…and live in my righteousness, my body
Soul for soul, welcome me, with a holy kiss
So that you regain life, by being inside, my body
Edify this beating heart
Nulify my fears
Dreams spill into reality
Underneath my climbing years
Race me to the finish line
Ask me if I care
Nurture the impossible
Contain the pain to bear
Endurance is the cloak of beauty we all deserve to wear...
Fat cat with the paunch in his belly
Always eating the jam and grape jelly
Talks with a soft voice when sleepy
Hates back yard critters that’s creepy
Elevates his family with much love
Reveals his heart with a soft touch
Consider everything everyone else wants and needs
Afterwards, you can then spend time worrying about you
Remember to not be selfish, selfless is what to be
Invite all into your heart, by everything that you do
Neglecting others is not the way to show you care
Give fully of yourself and in return, they will care for you.
Forever and always a shoulder to cry on
Rendering self consciousness
Igniting hope and love
Enabling strength and will
Never letting you fall
Dependent on each other
Staying by each other's side when times get tough
Herculean strength of desire
Of the things in life to acquire
Patience, one must first aspire
Eases, for a while, mind in dire
S- incere attempts to understand.
I- mediate love and care.
S- hares pain and fear.
T- ells the truth and sacrifices lies.
E- ncourages in everyway possible.
R- eaches out to share many a tear.
Allow me the time to say to you all
Never, ever put down your own write
A poem is something that comes from the heart
With words of power, for feelings ignite
Even the best may stumble and stutter
Some may even, with words, totally misuse
Others can interpret, so don’t ever fret
My theory is that, we’re not to abuse
Everyone, yes, you all, write so very well
Words that inspire, speak of rapture, the Lord
Really, all of you, pen the most awesome verses
In styles that amaze, to not leave us bored
This, I say, you all pen really great reads
Everyone here, you just have to believe
Great is the reward
Of the pure in heart. Their
Deeds done in truth
Will follow them
Into Life after
Life everlasting and
Life in this time. They will
Indeed - But with many persecutions.
So continue doing unto others
Even as you would have them do unto
You, especially to those
Of the household of faith and to those who
Revile you and as you
Lay up these treasures
In Heaven, you will heap coals of Fire upon
G- rounded in faith.
R- elying in him.
A- lways must strive.
C- ontinuing in his love.
E- verlasting eternity.
M- ust strive to be all he was predestines to be.
A- and trust the GOD above, who will
N- nevermore depart.
W- alk meek and lowly,
O- nward by his Grace.
M- aintain a quiet life wiht trust
A- nd look to GOD above, thus
N- ow, by faith; live.
Freedom comes, but bears a price
Reminiscent of the wars before
Every man must learn to fight
Encounter enemies by the score
Damn those who defy the right
Or for tyranny, they might employ
Make them see the freedom’s light
So they’ll feel the freedom’s joy
Remember now the freedoms ring
Enlighten others, let them see
Live lives in peace, let’s all sing
Invite them out to be set free.
Encourage others so they know
Freedom’s here, so watch it grow.
I heard the call of the ocean
It spoke to me in my dreams
A young Indian woman met me there
She spoke of the old ways in me
She pointed out to a whale
She said can you hear him speak
I heard a whisper from his spirit
He said Live your dreams
Tears welled up in my eyes
A swift hand wiped them away
Dont be sad my sister
Tomorrow's a new day
