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 
adulthood-independent
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 
shines.
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~

Jesus~
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~

Love

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

H Hailed as new born King, Holy

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!

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 
hope.
  
  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.

T H E S E C R E T

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

Thanksgiving

Thank You Lord for bounteous blessings
Hailing on us liberally.
As we partake of Your bounty
Not all are feasting, as are we.
Knowing this, we pray the homeless
Soon will have their hunger eased.
Give them food and a safe shelter.
That we care, we know You're pleased.
Verily, You have commanded
In our plenty, we must share,
Not forgetting when we suffered,
God of Mercy, you were there.

Country Acrostic

Canada the home of my birth
open sky from sea to shining sea
unbelievable beauty captivates my heart

teaming with wildlife trees and lakes

    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.

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!

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

Thanksgiving

Thanks some how seems not enough
How can I show my appreciation?
A smile a hug
Now is the time while you are with us
Kissing these hands that have held me and wiped my tears
Smiles you have given to me
Gift of life 
I am who I am in no small part because of you
Very few mom's will ever compare
I am so blessed to know this kind of love
Now because of you I know what it is to love and be loved
Great gifts like these require thanks, some how it doesn't seem enough.

Failure

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.

It's Just One Word

 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.

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.

SOCIETY

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?

LOVE

Trust love to heal, trust love to stay; 
Heed love’s appeal, heed love today; 
Embrace and feel, embrace and play!

Feel doubt and pain, feel quest and fear; 
Observe what comes, observe what hurls; 
Urge prompts new gain, urge primes right here; 
New mindset farms, new waves to swirl. 
Do what feels right, do let love act;
Ask to sense light, ask to live tact.
Truth can set free, truth can spark zest; 
Intent funds tact, intent frames proof;
Opt just to be, opt love’s fond quest; 
Now learn to fact, now spark love’s proof!

Love dwells within, love heals all hurts; 
Open your mind, open your heart; 
Voice grace unseen, voice joy that flirts; 
Embrace mankind, embrace all parts.

Speak from the heart, speak clear and bright; 
Ask to be true, ask to be kind;
Yes love now starts, yes love feels right; 
See health in you, see love align. 

Love starts with me, love starts with you; 
Observe and see, observe love’s cues;
Vouch for each cause, vouch for each act;
Embrace all costs, embrace fine tact.

The Angel I Knew

The Angel I Knew


Skin so fair like snow as no comparison
With hair so wild and eyes which shows,
somewhat sad and yet fear-ish glow. 
How long do you plan to keep me
by your side?
Under you spell by sound of voice,I fall 
to my knees for you.Batter,broken and scared
Yet even betrayed I'll stay by your side loyal
and proud foremost happy. As I stand by your
Side I look into your eyes.
The turning leaves rain upon your head.
The worse be I captivated by you.With your 
Snowy white skin
Wild hair and twilighted eyes
You spread your angelica wings,you took off leaving me
But with beautiful memories,So that I never forget
Well see each other again.
But for now 
Your The Angel I once Knew

1st of the Last Men

Naturally is all you have to say
Ay i wake up to get my pay
Tell it through and true
U know i cant go our looking blue
Riding fancy clothes and wearing fast cars
All I have to do is aim for the stars
Lie to me like they lie to you
Looks like your dream has come true
You kneel then pray to see another day

Naturally that would be the last line but the lie i was told cant stop me from writing. It actually makes me write more and i know how it is on the road, coming out of bathrooms stepping on toads. Your life is pure so what is next, answer your phone very important text. Step outside to get some air, hiding from the people you thought you knew but found new friends in an empty room. Tired and breathing with fire from your chest, the door opens and you see that you will always be running from things you ran from in the past. Be a stop sign, posted on all most every street to stop the cars coming your way and when they pass you can resume your day.

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.

BACK TO SCHOOL

They all look happy after school
He suddenly lose all that glow after school
He now sees reality flashing as the school time end
It’s time to back where his roots lays
She is also showing signs of sadness
For her going back is even harder
Far but it’s nothing compare to the pain
The pain of looking after her brother
His eyes tell the story hidden from his cute face
The looks many says he pick from his mother
Their parents have passed after a hard fought sickness
The same sickness that he is living with
Some say their parents were bewitched
But she knows the truth as her brother look upon her
She is ready to do anything for him like lioness fighting furiously
As her mother’s words ring to her ears;
‘Look after your brother’
The days are even longer then months
The months are years to them
Only Sundays are a blessing to them 
Playing is not for them as many fear them
Consumed by fear all they do is read their books
Deprived to associate with other kids
Loneliness crept and engulfs them like a dog in the wilderness 
It’s back to school

School for young brains to be nurtured
But a child so young with an old brain
He too wanted to play and live normally
She too would have enjoyed doing her hair
Living in a free country yet nothing is free for them
Having rights that will not bring food on the table
But her father contradicted this thought
As he said “always see this as an opportunity to success”
Only success can give them the life they envy to live
A life of being happy
A life of being accepted for who you are
Even now they wait and live by the hope
The hope of getting this grant money
Hoping that their granny will get back
Back to their simple and haunting house
The house so controlled by fear and shame
House that gives birth to pouring tears 
This is their house and burden for life
This is the house with no breadwinner
They are the only survivors in this house
They will be the corners of this house.

WORD PORTRAIT

With what I have to work with is all I need

Or do I? as I choose to write this with speed

Rule of thumb I have to emphasize the words I use

Do you think so? or should I just choose?

Portrait is a fascinating word it has so many meaning

Overview of this word is this I say; accent, highlight, illuminate, and stressing

Revealing more words to use is what I will do

The meaning of Portrait is what I will view

Random words that make the word Portrait now I will say

A word that means the same yet makes it more pleasant to overlay

I will now say some words or two; accentuate, feature, punctuate

These words can either be used or can be put on debate

Dearest Grandpa

Drops of rain, splash at my feet
Every time I see them I'm reminded of you
Always working so hard and true
Realizing that I held your heartbeat
Every now and then your smile would creep
Showing me the love that I knew
Truest form of compassion as I cooed
 
Growing up through the years
Rain would suddenly give me a fright
And this saddened me for many a day and night
Never had I experienced these type of fears
Don't you remember holding me and loving away my tears
Paw Paw I miss you so much now; you making those delicious hash brown bites
And although you're gone, I'll see you soon in Heavenly Sunlight

MYSTIC MAGIC MIRACLE

(Dedication: For Ann, at Easter)


Mind with whole heart, mind feeling still;
Yield to good cheer, yield to clear light;
Sense subtle art, sense sensuous fill;
Trust tact to steer, trust truth to sight;
Intuit sure start, intuit bold will;
Charm flavours choice, charm travels bright.


Move with the times, move with the play;
Ask to be wise, ask to be clear;
Grace inspires rhymes, grace inflames say;
Imprint sweet prize, imprint sound cheer;
Choice sprinkles chimes, choice endows day.


Message in kind, message in sway;
Indulge fond feel, indulge fine think;
Rest and align, rest and replay;
Accept what heals, accept what links;
Calm fashions bliss, calm tinkers right;
Love funds goodwill, love primes succinct;
Ease "All That Is", ease shows true light.


Meet each new face, meet each new range;
Open mind knows, open heart glows;
Voice fervent trace, voice ample change;
Embrace life's show, embrace love's flow;
Sign time and space, sign fact and strange.

Romance on Dubain Sands

Random thoughts on a roulette grid, softly sifts on Dubain sands
Edge of heaven I cannot see, yet see you, I do, my bestest friend.
Keystone of bliss, you carry along; strumming softly its guitar strands
Hand in hand, cheek to cheek, glued together by Aphrodite's command
Abstracting on a distant dream, together should our family expand.

For every month of March in every year

For every month of March in every year

For every month of March in every year
Of course marks days to my renaissance
Refurbishment, metamorphosis, rejuvenation

Every day of my life is never a dearth
Virtues are ample in each of them
Even I befriend and I reciprocally befriends
Revelation, rehabilitation are fine things
Yes that usually surround most of my day

Moment by moment I sense reasons and purposes
Of why precious is my being to this land of living
No matter coma, the what though
Till now that not all envisage comes to pass
Happy I am for those ones that come to pass

Of every month that revolves the year, aside
Full moon counts, is my month of April

Mind loves sharing the joy of half of that month
At least with hearts and eyes that give succor-
Roommates, family members, friends near and far
Comportment in consternation, plus compensation
Have to be my compilation till that day departures

It's in my day, meant to set aside by me 
Nay, all day stand and bring the best to me 

Even at work that I'll always be occupied by
Visitor's wants and needs, and by colleagues' things…
Elders' summon demanding full attention to their plights
Resting intermittently with siesta and dusk
Yes, all of these are pertinent and need to be orchestrated

You see when I tell you I do have time, not to check time...
Etching some of the things I believe will guest and best me
Anywhere, everywhere ...all times, so long as the world continues to live
Relics too relevant to living -the leader, the lead- will the encomium me be

Love's Reverence, a cover of ''A Boat Beneath A Sunny Sky''

Chivalrist of pure intent
Honoured by the ears that lent
A tale recounted to content

Resplendant wonders brought to ear
Laments that draw an unseen tear
Evasion of the heart's deep fear

Soft young mind and placid eyes
Lucid to the tale's disguise
Unseeing the truth behind the lies

There upon the golden water
Wimsically listening to the lauder
Inclines the middle Liddell daughter

Days have come and years have passed
Golden evenings couldn't last
Erosionary time has swept too fast

Dreary dawns and bitter nights
Overcame the muse's might
Dead and gone, that fragile light

Greiving when his heart was tore
Secreted to land of lore
On through Wonderland he'll soar

Now to dream forevermore

A Passerby's Dedication

Just and true; unafraid to make a stand
Understanding and true—you are a true man
So lucky am I to be in your presence
Though I know you not—I am filled with reverence
Interesting and unique you are to me
Never change; and be whatever your heart wants to be!

Can I ever have the honor of being your friend?
Observing you with people—your kindness never ends
Never have I seen someone quite like you
Never will I find a person so devoted and true
Often I wonder if you could ever...
Remember me...probably never.

IF I WAS TO TAKE SOMETHING WITH ME

You have been a pillar to my life; 
I have really lived my entire life to please people
You have made me the happiest man;
I even at some point forgot what was the purpose of me been here 

You showed me that with love everything is possible 
I now look back at the challenges we once had
They were big that time but now it’s seems as 
The smallest things to ever happen

But if I was to take something with me; that will 
Be the moments I spent with you
I remember the things like it all happened yesterday
Your smile showed me the directions because your 
Teeth were as white as snow.

If I was your maker than I would have love to always
See your smile as it can turn winter into summer
All darkness vanished in your present; surely you brought
Light to me when I see your face glow like gold; I get scared
As I never thought that luck really exist in this generation.
When the light shines for me today; 
I will take you along hope the master understand.

Treading Sins Away

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.

A POETIC CONSCIENCE

                    Dan Cwiak -  Dedicated to *** Constance ***
 
                    The Rambling Poet's work titled: Throbbing With Life

      
                     In thinking of a contest poem with ~~~ RULES ~~~

                     Consideration must be given to them,

                     Or the poetry written will not fit

                     Under their *** UMBRELLA ***

                     Lonely, the poet feels encumbered by

                     Doing his work for such a ~~~ CONTEST ~~~

                     Nothing else can upset the delicate balance

                     Of words, rhyme, and *** METER ***

                     To enter a contest is a challenge

                     For any poet to attempt ~~~ YET ~~~

                     In so far as subscribing to the rules

                     Necessary, he must make the effort with

                     Devotion, thought, and ***STRONG WILL ***

                     This is the strength of the poet's 

                     Heart as a writer and wordsmith,
                     
                     Endeavoring to complete his ~~~ TASK ~~~

                     When I try to write something clever

                     Or get on with my writing as a  *** QUEST ***

                     Rigid are the thoughts that cross my mind,

                     Descriptive are those that only ~~~ ESCAPE ~~~

                     Such that I am mindful of the burden laid upon me.
                     
                     To some, it may come easily to their *** BEING ***

                     Others, like me, have a more difficult task as the 

                     Disharmony of thoughts, words, and feelings

                     Evolve into an imperfect type of ~~~ PERFECTION ~~~

                     Very often, the expressions are only those 

                     Of the emotional guilt I may have for the subject.

                     Too often, however, I begin to use *** Poetic License ***

                     Even though, I should not take that liberty.

                     To those who can claim the poet's glib words,

                     Or the gift that they have,  often proceed to ~~~ GIVE ~~~
                     
                     Yet, such is my life as poet.  Such is the ~~~ CONSCIENCE ~~~

                     Of my soul.  Oh, but to shed myself of these thoughts,

                     Under the banner of the poetry that I *** WRITE ***

VOICES


Note chaos that swirls in empty shades;
Observe and see the rowdy waves;
Infux of twirls of muddles made;
Sense faint beauty that comes dares to brave;
Empty this whirl that shouts to trade.


Charm feels a sway as passion flings;
Hope primes the path to help you grow;
Offer to play with rhymes you spring;
Invoke fun stuff that steal the show;
Cheer funds wise stray with joy that sings;
Explore enough the course of flow.


Vouch for the lines of thought and feel;
Opt to just say what heart knows well;
Ink now refines words that reveal;
Calmness portrays the cast that dwells;
Express clear signs to forge appeal.


Cheer speaks softly of pleasant ploys;
Aim to be still in mystic core;
Look now gently as peace employs;
Mind, heart and will can surge grand store.


Be a great soul with a true heart;
Abide in grace that raptures bliss;
Love frames the whole in end and start;
Meet face to face in "All That Is."


Pray not to prey upon false need;
Sense a deep greed that covets things;
Align your play with touch that seeds;
Look beyond need to hurl fond flings;
Meet divine days with ample feed.


Love is the way to meet each cause;
Incite your heart to know the way;
Value each stay in your life's course;
Extend each start in touch and sway.


Live your fond quest in mundane strands;
Offer to be your best version;
Vouch beyond tests to mark your stand;
Embrace and see your sure vision.


Love what you do and laugh with cheer;
Align your space with timely zest;
Urge wit in you to spark things clear;
Give jest sure place as pun frees quest;
Humour hurls due finesse that steers.

WE

I think of the years between us and 
Little snippets of our journey floods my mind.
Life and all it's roads at times difficult

Allowing us the chance to change, to be remade for the
Last of all our tales shall be of our triumphs- 
Ways we conquered our self doubt, our impulses
Always giving way to that better me, better you
Yet you walk these roads with a heavy heart
Soul weary and feet blistered and I say to you

Be not afraid of what s to come
Everyone is given only what he or she can bear

Yes I say to it all - the pain, our tears, the laughter
Our fears,  - the joy and all these years between us
Underneath it all there lies our blessing and 
Redemption in the form of this friendship

For the mistakes, the errs are not erased but" Our Father In Heaven"
Remember is the sweetest prayer
In it we find the mercy he tempers our punishment
Even as we are wrong, we are in his light
No man can take your soul, so walk
Don't run to the end of your life, when it is done, he is there.

You Must Have Perseverance

Patience it’s an necessity
Envision your goals
Reaction is key
Show initiative
Encourage each other
Victory is attainable
Earn respect
Reach out and take hold of whatever you strive for
Achieve greatness
Nothing comes easy
Champion status is something earned not made
Expect only the very best for yourself

If you want to be successful at whatever you do
Then you must go after it with all of your heart
Along with some perseverance and also a never say quit attitude
And you will be amazed at what you can accomplish
Because I know whatever you strive for is within reach
But now I can’t promise you that it will come easy.

Orange

Orange

This now time is a gift to graft a moment
In the mist,
Or how in the midst of circumstance;
Such volatility brews this even stance to render;
balance for the few;
What year is this bleak friend?
You who seeks vibrations from the set,
The top of the refrigerator,
The bottom of the sea?
Where does a deep remorseful dream stir?;
To well up deep within the shuddering silence
Held within; or does a dark wave’s causation meld with
Castigation of one’s doubts.
But in this brilliant sunrise display
all shines,
all smiles,
all cascades from window shade to
Refractive prism’s wonder: Orange.
A vacant stare upon the surface is not required or
Allowed in this kitchen’s staging glory
Palms up I have summoned you,
From my heart,
Welled up through my eyes,
Selective in surprise
to see,
To seek,
To let such majesty seep one blue,
To let this moment stand a sterling gift to you:
Orange.

For years

You have always told me your plans

For years your words have grown bigger

I felt my heart beat for your poems

For my heart felt your heart beats

The beats that tune my passion

High by your sweet words that light my mind

Days grew legs walking to months and years

You told me the same words, ‘I love you’

But now my ears have grown moulds

Neither my mind can comprehend that lullaby

Time has come for you to show me

This is now your time to prove them wrong

I really tried to force my superior ego 

But your love has caused my heart to be bitter

My thoughts have created a devil incarnate 

Thou I wonder how I got hooked by your words

Many were taken by my exquisite gesture and smile

But I chose to you to make me fly with angels

Show me why I chose you from them all

For years I have been patient with you

Tell me it was worth waiting

Promises

You promised me 
that you'll love me in away know one else could 
that I'd be your only one 
Promised me 
I;d always be yours no matter what would go down 
You'll stand with me forever 
I told you all my secrets 
I opened my heart to you 
Put aside all you did, the Ly's, the hurt 
forgot it all for you 
I Promised you 
I'd hold you down 
Kept you close to me 
You told me things i dreamed someone could tell me 
Never thought i was enough, You told me to  
"keep your head up"
That you love me 
You saw me in the way i wish they all could see me
All i wanted was to be with you 
You promised me 
That you'd all ways be their 
That you were never far enough not to love me 
and i believed you!! 
Even when you broke my heart and didn't wipe away my tears 
When you put yourself above everyone
i remembered i promised id hold you down and always love you 
and now look who will always be here 
Why, because i promised you 
And unlike you i keep the promises i make make to those i love

SELF-TALK

(Dedication: For my son Michael Zachary)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Aid your appeal with easy wit;
Welcome the pun that comes to heal;
Air sure reveal in worthwhile fit;
Raise cheery fun to fund goodwill;
Enter each feel with loving bits.


Seize moment's prime to dwell right now;
Embrace all things that happen here;
Love beyond crime what love endows;
Faith ever sings with sanguine cheer.


Trust in your heart to wear firm mind;
Ask to be free to sing and play;
Live love you art with happy finds;
Keep joy you see through night and day.


Sing sacred psalms that inspire heart;
Live your passion in lovely work;
Enjoin and come to know soul parts;
Enjoy fine action in fling and jerk;
Prize feisty sums that fashion art.


Weave sheer magic in path sans hate;
Align your tears with pain that strains;
Live dynamic beyond mere fate;
Keep faith not fear through loss and gain.


Ask for clear quest to shine a light;
Walk to the edge to venture far;
Apply pure zest to guide your sight;
Keep count dear sage of blazing stars;
Endow your best to sparkle flight.

Take The Walk

Many don’t know were to go
What road to take 
What direction’s to make 
Few find there way
Other’s just go around confused 
Empty with a void 
Leaving the heart without joy 
When the answer’s are so close 
Free for all who ask seek
And knock and are ready to receive 
 
Open your heart to the promise 
Of everlasting life of joy 
For who would give there only son
To die for our sin’s 
So who are we to deny him 
That forgives and washes’ our garments clean


Born again cloth in white pure and true
Baptized in the spirit 
Walking in faith keeping the word 
That feed’s the soul 
Against the arrows of the evil one 


The First step is the hardest 
But he is there to see that we 
don’t fall short of his glory 
Take up the cross don’t’ be lost 

Take the walk of faith

Cherishing (Love Came Down)

Cherishing a man child
Holding only just a little while

Redeemer in her loving arms
Infant boy radiating charms

Savior of mankind is born
The angels announce one dark morn

Mary pondered each day
As supernatural began display

Son of God, her son

Love, God's love came down
Opposing satan's evil ground


Victory, oh victory is our's today
Emanuel chose to give his love away

Hanging Onto the Stars

Emeralds fall from your tears.
Various decisions I face.
Eternal wonder I will
Relive any choice
You make
Tonight under these stars.
Intensely I watch you,
Mirrored I am in your
Eyes. My faceless expression
Intricately 
Locked in your gaze.
Only tonight matters.
Only your next sentence can
Keep me safe.
Inside I cry but
Not outwardly.
Your decision, not mine.
Object I will not.
Urgently though, I pray.
Remember my
Eyes and see me whole.
Youthful and always
Embracing you tender. Look at my lost
Strength. Carefully  
Immersed in this 
Stone face. Can’t you see my 
Endurance? I hold on to this 
Everlastingly. I apologize.
State your opinion,
Truthfully now. Just 
Always see, feel, taste, and
Remember the
Stars we watched long ago.

The return

I return to birth place which I left in times of pain
I can smell the scents of soil stuck in roots so deep
All looks new to my vivid eyes trapped in the past
Today I shall see my carrier who is still standing
She is so fragile now but can cover long walks
I return with nothing on my hands not even a stain of dirt
My hands are so clean and soft that you can wipe your tongue
I am returning from where labour is only endure by the mind 
Mama I too wanted to come with something like my peers
But I return with nothing on my hands for now
The pain that I left you with still linger my empty dreams
Thou I am unlike the others what I bring to you is love
What I have is crafted in my mind and encrypt with codes 
But I have the key to open everything now
What I will open will change everything that seems blur
Today I return exhausted with guilt of not fulfilling your expectations
But I am glad that this world has kept space for both of us

Thanksgiving Day

Today and everyday is worth being thankful.
Having warmth and love given is always thoughtful.
All of us should carry this feeling throughout year.
Not being thankful is just selfish, shows your fear.
Kindness should be showed to all each and everyday.
Sure, it may be tough at first, for your heart to sway.
God gave everyone a mind, heart and soul the same.
Individually we must all prepare and play the game.
Victory shall be the joy and happiness, you bring.
Inventory your heart; let your spirit free to sing.
Never let a sour soul, spoil your delightful song.
God is alive, great, awesome, he is never wrong.

Discover loving essence; make it your quarry.
Allow his honor to grace your existence and story.
You and you alone are the keeper of our Lords glory.

See what you see, see what you feel;
End as you start, end as you style;
Pause just to be, pause just to heal;
Indulge your heart, indulge your smile;
Align calmly, align appeal.

Plot your way here, plot your path clear;
How and why ask, how and when stray;
Only love steers, only joy cheers;
Touch as you bask, touch as you say;
Open heart knows, open mind shows;
Sound art now glows, sound voice funds flow.

Live with bold poise, live with fine grace;
Opt to be true, opt to be good;
Voice sacred choice, voice happy trace;
Embrace on cue, embrace fond moods;
Love 'All That Is', love sets you free;
Yield to true bliss, yield what will be.

Inviting Love

I linger and wait for your single touch.
Now and forever our love will grow such.
Vogue of emotions that will go beyond,
Impatience of our time sealed with bond.
Traces of our fervor are written in history.
I have lived and loved in a past of mystery.
Now as before we found each other’s heart.
Grown from enthusiasm from being apart.

Lost we were in the folds of past consequence.
Only to be guided by cupids divine providence.
Vows that we share go beyond our universe’s legacy.
Each of us bound in affection, fulfilling our destiny.

Fallen in Love

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.

The Dance of the Ocean

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

Trail gently down your spine
Enjoy the morning sunlight,
Night will follow soon
This time will pass, till then my love
Howl softly to the moon.

God Bless America

Gracious thought has been dropped from human inhabitants.
Our hearts have become cold and distant to almost everything.
Deference has no meaning for us or any other human.

Before we can carry onward, we must remember the beginning.
Lessons remembered are the key to our future roads to travel.
Every soul must search inward to see where we are headed.
Success is truly wonderful and we have fulfilled our winning.
Success without faith is gone, and the road less traveled tortures.

America has blessed each one of us from the beginning in faith.
Mercy is upon our leaders, for they have lost the true reality.
Erasing their hearts and minds of the reality, united we stand.
Refuse greed mongers of their desires, replacing with honesty.
Individuality of the representatives was our ancestor’s goal.
Call out God Bless America in truth, faith, freedom, to all.
Anything less will be the end of whatever time we have left.

Destiny of Love So Divine

Drive me to the brink of madness, with kisses so fine.
Ecstasy is not a drug for us, but life’s superior line.
Sensuality, takes us on the road of temptations desire.
Treasures of the heart bless us and start the fire.
I am blind by the affection; you give so willingly.
Now and forever, our lives bonded, delicately.
Yes, it seems to true and so unreal, we have this thing.

Our lives as well bound by the blessing of this ring.
Favored by the heavens, I know, we are until the end.

Listen to the pledge; I give to thee this day, I send.
Only you my love can sweep my desire to pleasure.
Visions of you came to me, dreams of measure.
Every look, which you give to me, shows love divine.

Sincere words that you say each day, makes me pine.
Our passion is roaring with such answers, that quake.

Driving us to the brink of madness, which we make,
I await your presence, each night, as we prepare to sleep.
Violent fevers of ardor set my body to quiver and weep.
Individuality of ours does not exist, while together.
Nature has flooded our souls, with both lace and leather.
Excitedly, we both win, with destiny of love so divine.

My Love For Her

More than I could ever imagine it could be
You could never understand where she takes me

Looks at me with that sparkle in her eyes
Ovations come from every smile she tries to hide
Volunteering herself to my needs
Even putting up with my attitude (hard to believe)

Forever my love to her and not another
Opening new chapters in our lives together
Relishing ever touch,every kiss...it's her I long for...it's her I miss

Having a relationship with Jesus,spurring us on to be better
Evidently our love is ordained from above,sustainable in any weather
Romance in every kiss...I've always told her,I never knew it could be like this

Evil, Wicked & Demented

Enjoys her new found roles in her life
Visions of dastardly deeds dance in her head
Irate when people are rude and show disrespect
Loves to know what she is capable of 

Wishes some things were different
Is nervous about sons going off on their own
Cool mom she is to them
Knows they Love her no matter what
Enjoys her more morbid thoughts
Does enjoy to make a person squirm

&

Definitely not your average beauty
Enjoys the inner workings of her mind
Makes no issue over who she is
Enriches your life just by being there
Needs love and support not condemnation
Takes charge when no one else will
Each day she shines no matter what
Deliciously twisted and still a friend





This is dedicated to my other 2 sisters. This is ALL 3 of us in various forms. I love you
2 and I hope I you make proud. I am proud to have you as my sisters and hope you 2 know you

again

It has passed too soon
So again will be good
It can even change the looks;
Sooth all the wounds that oozes of pus
Eat all the pain forever

Say it again to these ears blocked by high waves
Do it again I want to see
Maybe this time I shall see;
Make a scenario that I will understand

I wanna keep with me
This time is different 
How I wish he would shout at me
How I so long your presence
Where did you really go?
Where do the meek go?

I wanna get it this time
Tell me the future you planed for me
Tell me how far you would gone
This is the time to say it again
Say it now while you the opportunity
Leave a souvenir that I will keep
Say something to my open ears
Lift it from me now
Open your mouth once again
Let it all out to me

Again and again 
I wanna listen to before I too fall
Beat me up atleast so that I can feel pain
I feel your aggression today
I want you to show me you’re secret

What is it that I have to prove?
I want to reach you and say;
You are mine, you are my father
Nothing will ever be the same.

Holy understanding of glory from dust to man
Reconsecrate us to your will while dust desire
Immortal tangibilities the finite can understand

Mortal hearts feel in yielding to love's desiring?
Anxious at the table the breast of Eucharist feast
Sleep and dreams delay, to share thy company.

Virtue taste, and hands caress gospel's grace ladled

Yahshua's Menorah

As darkness 
Descends and we remember all
Of the brave who fall
No memory is stronger than the miracle 
All saw as Yahshua lit the Menorah
In the Temple.

Eternal made one day’s oil
Last for eight days toil.
On the seventh day Yahshua celebrated.
His families’ the Macabbees' victory.
Each Jew sends praise and love as
In days of old for the blessing of life 
No man
Understood

Eternal love and light
Charity
Humility
And 
Devotion more than Yahshua

In your arms no pain will last

This is a classic Acrostic .. but with a twist, each even line has internal rhyme, each
odd line has end rhyme ... plus odd lines are 8 syllables, even 6.

Inside your smile, I rest awhile.
No words; just eyes that speak,

Yearning fingers, touch that lingers
On silkiness of cheek.
Under saffron light; before night
Renders lovers to rest

A kiss we share dispels despair,
Remorse; a leaving guest.
May faith enfold these arms that hold
Safely, your tender trust.

No nightmares come for dreams undone
Once fear has turned to dust.

Perhaps too fast my hand is cast
And passion may just pause,
If this is so then you must know,
No-bodies perfect, all have flaws.

When hesitation calls; builds walls,
In this bond, created.
Listen to me and you will see
Lasting truth is stated

Laying here, you so close, so near
A vow, softly spoken.
Shadows will not fall, end it all,
This love shall never be broken.

Powerful words to bring into sentences
Raining out delight to recieve to God
Aiming towards a good way of life

Nurturing in a new way of maturity and changing our attitudes
Gouging out the knowledge generously given by God

Theatrical Overture

     
Shadows form a discreet curtain shrouding love's address      
Entering the hypnotic stage, stardust caress     
Refracting moonbeams sweep balcony focusing spotlight on gleaming tress     
Endeared minstrel plucks heart strings wooing his princess 
Nightingale perches in love's apron unbridled passion to express
A romantic balad with blithe melody, congruent harmony; decorum to dress 
Dancing to the orchestra, striking a subordinate note; fealty to impress 
Enthralled audience captivated by the last, ingratiating bow of courtliness


Medieval Stage vocabulary

apron: a stage that projects out into the audience area.

orchestra: orchestra pit is a lowered area between the stage and the audience. 

An allegory, comparing theatrical play to wooing troubador.

Long for arms that truly love
Inside them find everlasting happiness
Vehemently pray for blessings
Endure any battle which seems endless
Love-sickness is a harsh test
Avoid being alone and if it saddens you

Offer sincere, honest advice 
Valuate what's precious and fair
Empty yourself of rancor and live longer

Something was special

The house is the honest witness

The house that was windowless

The walls that are written of our happiness

I see you walk through the gang fearless 

Love has seen my most weakness

The love that takes me to whole lot of limitless heights

Loving you makes everything meaningless

The pillows give me the high of love with an oozing smoke

Loaded with love my heart struggle like a cripple sheep

I take my last pieces of words to soothe my fragile love

But there was something special from those ups and downs

Something was special about our most decorated love

Maybe the talking stones were telling the truth

Thou the sweet scent of the flowers never stop giving courage

Today is a special day for me and you.

Dear wife I dedicate love for you in more than one word.
Excitedly you call me your dear husband with sincere love.
Delivering laughter and passion, that we share every day,
I adore every part of you, even words that seem unheard.
Cause my dear wife; I have selective hearing they talk of.
Actually, even when I don’t admit, I hear all that you say.
Telling you each day, I love you; seems not enough to me.
I have love and respect, for the love that comes from thee.
Only the Angels in heaven know my true feelings in esprit.
Now I display eternal love, placing it upon Heavens marquee.

She blesses my spirit wiping away my scars.
My love I would embed upon the planet mars

SHARE THE JOY

Sing a new psalm, sing of fond cheer;
Heart and mind show, heart and soul link;
Align fine calm, align choice clear;
Rich voice casts flow, rich poise floods think;
Echoes soothe balm, echoes niche here.


Touch has a way, touch feels so right;
Health greets and plays, health firms and sights;
Endings hurl say, endings fling light.


Jump up and twirl, jump up and see;
Opt just to curl, opt just to be;
Yield zest that swirls, yield zeal that frees.


Nearer than feel, nearer than zest;
Offer goodwill, offer request;
Will a new deal, will a clear fest.

Ask for fine start, ask for fond whole;
Yield and be still, yield and do seal.

In The Mood For Love Again

Intelligence would desire to never fall in love again.
Never to fall in love or even let it begin.
Though our hearts are smarter than the brain,
Hearts beat to a different drum in a refrain.
Each one desires emotions without restrain.
Many persons have and will fall in love very deep.
Only some will fail; others emotions will keep.
Ones that fail will begin anew; after they weep.
Deep emotional affections will never sleep.
Failure in love is never the end for anyone.
One truly only fails; if they hide or run.
Reality is that love is forever if it is won.
Let your mind’s eye control not any feelings.
Only your heart can regain deep dealings.
Victory after love failures; begin with healings.
Each of us heal differently after passionate killings.
All will heal, but not all will give it a try.
Granted they will miss affection, then cry.
Also may decide they will go out to buy.
I say everyone will have many; before they die.
Never say you’ll never love again; it’s a lie.

Winchester

Wandering…waiting, I find myself back to you
In search forever, never meaning to be blue
Never wanting to want you, but wanting anyway
Chastising myself and despairing everyday
How can you be so wonderful to me?
Even the thought of seeing you again makes me want to flee
Surrendering into your beautiful eyes I love
Telling myself to never give up
Ever longing, I will still wait to see you again
Rendering my love to you…far to distant England

Shes an angels

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

Jesus Christ

Praise Him for His Holy descent to earth

Revere his Virgin Mother giving birth

Annoint His head and feet with Oil of Myrrah

Illuminate His Mother Mary's care

Spiritually His soul was blessed

Extolling His Father at God's behest


Teacher He was to all who stopped and heard

Honour his forbearance of wrath incurred

Exemplary His traits  for all to see


Lauded he was when died at Calvary

Obeisance His selfless sacrifice

Redeemer He is of man's wayward vice

Deliverer He's there at our demise

Angelic Statues

Amidst the shadows of loved ones past, there is something.
Nearer to humankind then we would ever really know.
Great and small works of stone stand watch and quietly sing.
Each one piece of art, a tribute of what heavens bestow,
Light from morning star embraces what the new day will bring.
I have seen the gracious glimmer from above as statues glow.
Carefully they watch, greeting, allowing visitors hearts forego.

Stone is their form, though love and compassion their creation.
Treasure to be found in each different Angel that you will see,
Angels guide, while guarding till the end of times duration.
Trace their feelings, embrace their love, and seek it for thee.
Unknown wonders to many stand quiet, serving salvation.
Everyone can view the power of these in a new found decree.
Sculptures by man, Gods images of faith, they give regeneration.

COUGAR EFFECT

Can anyone or should they say anything about loves effect.
Only one issue I feel is important, that they are both adults.
Undeniably love knows no bounds, or even any sect.
Granted in the bible, they chose younger women with respect.
Age is just a factor, when it comes to loves depth of realism.
Reason, whether be older men or women, having no schism.

Each day that passes unhappiness rages, in relationships of close age.
Forever love is in the heart and soul; it really has no classic cage.
Forever love is even rarer these days, than ever before.
Every soul has a soul mate, this I do believe with Heavens score.
Craving the closeness and touching of spirits bound, with true tenderness.
Taking to name this the cougar effect, is lending thoughts that are lecherous.

POWER

Pure in heart for I shall see God
Work through my struggles all my days
For He is with me in all things 
I shall not be afraid

One day freedom comes
Walking head held high
Jesus is my Savior, He is my light
Knowing He is near, no need for fright

Worries ought not to live in me
No place near when God’s around
Free from sins and old demons
Because of Him I’m no longer bound

Every step is planned by Him
Breath that fills my lung preordered
How could I not see this before?
HE was always in my corner

Redeemer is He
Jesus Christ, Heavenly King
Father, Abba, maker of me
Holy Spirit, brings me peace

POWER is He that gives me strength
To get through each and every day
I fight, fall, have given up don’t want to go on
It’s Him that lifts me off the ground carries me all the way

O I LOVE YOU

O could I hear your voice like dew dropping sweetly
Inflamed all night by hot dreams, my lips would cool
Languishing no more to drink your milk so slowly
Oozing from the fountain peak of nipples clear pool
Vertically exuding, I should satiated subside in delight
Eternal grateful that you came to me in morning light
You are my hibiscus, my jasmine bejewelled and bright
O I love you, my sweet adorable native land. My wight, 
Utopia of the new world, Jamaica, sweet star of our night.

Courage

See my sun-
It smiles high;
Defeat becomes fun;
It,I sigh.
Some people vow,
Where your hope?
Before any row,
Solidly I cope!

Thinking that kills,
So travels stopped,
Building me hills.
God sees me,

Truth is good:

Gratitude

Graciously receiving anything that may be given by another,
Realizing that whatever you lack it could have been worse.
Accepting what you have been given and share with a brother.
Telling at least someone once a day to stay their steady course,
Involving someone new in something they have never done before.
Telling your savior that you are thankful for what he has given.
Unifying any couple back on a track with a heartfelt score,
Dealing with your inner self, showing others they are forgiven.
Each of us should do these things, without making it a chore.

Love, Love, Love

Love is God and God alone who died
Offering himself, cross gifted, self denied
Vow paying esteemer, making low high
Eternal giver, repenting no gift, you I glorify.

Love has no meaning in dictionaries, no place
Oystered in feelings like princely pearls
Valued in the market of the common race
Each man in himself alone defines his content by grace

Love is not the feeling we feel when desire peels
Only God in man recovers the power of love
Vessels are we filled where the spirit keels
Emotions in the heart. Only God is love.

A Tribute

Quintessence of radiance in the days of utter dark,
Unparallel among the guides, fairly upto the mark,
An advocate with plenteous, bounteous sincerity,
Invincible, feared neither wolf’s howl nor dog’s bark.

Decent in manners, humble and modest in being,
Efficacious in thinking, alert and vigilant in seeing,  
Adhesive to the mission, incarnated embodied truth, 
Zeal and zest packed rider on the steed galloping.

An aspiring figure, to the secured harbour he rowed
Majestically steering the lobbing ship, never bowed,
Malicious he was to none but clang to the just cause,
Undaunted he was and accomplished what he vowed.

Harmonious and integral he was in saying and deed,
Adroit and perfect guide he was in faith and creed,
Manly, steadfast, sagacious he was in his dealings,
Meticulous model he was on the hazy road to lead.

Adept he was who outwitted rivals with great skills,
Dignified who led safely through mounds and hills,
Admonished he the nation about the hidden traps,
Laudable whom pay homage, respect rivers and rills.

Incorruptible, whom from the hearts we all adore, 
Jeopardizing his comforts, he brought us all ashore,
Indulgent, who never beguiled the trusting people,
Nullified he the opponents who succeeded no more.

Navigated, ransacked he the seas at an early age,
Apostle of faith, truth who broke the confining cage,
Humane, humble he was yet he won the homeland,
Muhammad Ali Jinnah written on history’s each page.

Wire Giraffe

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

That stole your heart with a twist 
Can you remember our hopes and dreams

Taking away our first kiss replaced by tears  

Fiery pits, flames on high 
Red as rubies, like the devils eyes
Rocks and larva ,symbols of life
Bow down never, ill not die

Passionate

Passionate

Preferring to accomplish one’s goal instead of listening to the pessimistic angel play
      her harp.
Assertively attracted by the adrenaline rush one feels whenever he has
      accomplished one of the many of his goals in a life’s area.
Salaciously entranced by anything that brings bewilderment to oneself through
       performing repetitive rituals.
Sagaciously knowledgeable in merging time and creativity in order to fulfill one’s
       goals.
Inflating one’s mind with muscle memory through performing repetitive acts, while
       he inquiries the yogi.
Obliging to one’s self-control to help him maintain continuous endeavors of extreme
       challenges, however still somersaulting in the pools of pleasures that comes
       from being a wino.
Nagging oneself to digest all hindrances that cross his path and to laugh at
       everyone that believes him to be rather plain.
Associating oneself with people that share the same joy as himself when viewing a
       painting of a chimera.
Tremendously full of a vigorous amount of self-motivation that pushes oneself over
       every extreme and limit. 
Engaging in several festivities in order to celebrate his achievements and hopes for
       a progressive future.

Nay Sayers Deny Greatest Fear

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

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

Because Of You

Blazing temptations are true destiny,
Erotic desires created, from the start
Caressing our bodies, we are free.
Awakened bliss beyond creative art.
Undulating heartfelt completeness,
Sensational lasting addictedness,
Exuberance full of much sweetness,


Overcome and captured all of me.
Facilely, you will sanctify me.

Yet with no venal between each soul,
Opalescent victory from our control,
Unbelievably, he guides our role.

Easter Lives

Except the fact, He died for all our sins.
Almighty Gods’ Son showed us love.
Sincerity of the most precious gift for all,
Taking our sins upon the cross to bear,
Enveloped love in his daring passion.
Rebirth for all from a single, simple belief

Life is precious, but the hereafter is more.
Inside us all is a choice, we make alone.
Veraciously, we are upon the threshold.
Each one chooses, do not deny, betray or hide.
Say these words, “I believe he died for me“.

Predilection

Prior to my first glance, I had no destined direction.
Reality set in after your touching warm embrace.
Each new cuddle touched off a new infection.
Darling, I shall always remember your placid face.
I was alone and withering until your first hold.
Love was not a word that I have ever known.
Eagerly your contact, reveled me from the cold.
Caring ways that you possess, so closely shown,
Taking me back to my youth of hopeful desires,
I have been awarded now more than I deserve.
Our personal alliance has been enriched by fires.
Now and forever, our friendship shall us both serve.

They Know Not What They Do

Tell me again father in Heaven, why I must die for their sins.
Hearing your voice, shall prepare my way upward to you.
Early this year you said, I would be with you so very soon.
You told me, I would be sacrificed for all their sins on earth.

Kindness and love, is all I ever give here, to all I have met.
Now I must die, so they will live again, lest they forget.
Our love, father, is the greatest gift, that we share with all.
Who would be the traitor, denier; others will just let me go.

Now they judge me, send me to prison; force me to break.
Only you my father in Heaven understand their mistake.
They know not what they do to their savior, your son.

Whosoever believes, that I suffered on the cross for them?
Hear after and beyond, shall never parish from thine eyes.
Along shall have a place in your kingdom forever more.
They know not what they do, these torturers upon me.

Tell me again father, as of now, they know not what they done.
Hear my prayers my lord and father, I give my life for them.
Each one who believes in what I have done, preparing way.
Yet, this humanity now, they know what they < must > do.

Dear father and lord of mine, I forgive, what they have done.
Our love together shall await, choice is theirs for what to do.

A Big Ailment

Memories still linger here,
Yet, you no longer do.
Profound words I used to hear.
Remembering the feeling I had for you,
Ignites heartache cause you aren’t near.

Crazy talks of kids and marriage,
Everything was in harmonic motion,
Something we would never disparage.
Something to which I still pay devotion.

I'm Lethal When I Write

My ink bleeds 
upon the pages

Like I've cut a vein.

I feel no shame

For those who

Witness the gift

Dream with her and you will feel, your own reborn to life anew. 
Allow her to be herself; don't try to make her you. 
Uplift her self esteem and feel, your own soaring high. 
Give her your world to tarry in, and she'll teach you to fly. 
Hold tight the precious memories, of her every days. 
Thank God for lending her to love, teach her of his ways. 
Exclaim your love at every turn, never let her doubt.

Ta Da

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!

United as a planet, love will live, prejudice cease. 
Artists of inventions will grow in leaps and bound.

Universe of ours and beyond will be the new sight.

M anors towering
Over the horizon
Western skies ablazon
With majesty possessing.

E arth trodden soil
Bearing feet of noble birth
Tramping blades of aged turf,
Hearts destined to inner turmoil.

D anger lurking in
Shadows of the silent souls:
Smoldering, burning coals
Leaving scares of ashes within.

Rare to locate in this time,
Appearing so sublime
Their radiant light shining through.

E vening abbey bells
Sound the coming jubilee,
To mass we grandly flee
The Sabbath day the priest foretells.

V iking raiders come
Arriving by the ocean,
Longboats sail in motion,
Stealthy in their horrible glum.

A rmies marching near
Pillaging every city
Sorrow filled with pity,
Echoing cries of solemn fear.

L aughing now has ceased 
Only silence here to reign
With nothing left to gain
So many loved ones now deceased.

T ime is ticking to
A close, another plunder
Resounds like dark thunder
Beckoning to “The Red” anew.

I nto the misty,
Frosty air of the midnight
Eric leads the new fight
Away from the ruins gritty.
	
M an after man of 
Norsemen racing to the west
Shouting cries of the beast
Charging towards the mountains above.

E arly morning now 
Is here, but the Viking king
Is nowhere to be seen
He has fled after half a bow.

S ilent knights stand tall
For they have fended the 
Scoundrel attack; they see
New rays of hope starting to call
“Long live Christ Jesus,
 Savior of us all!”

A More Excellent Way

Let the strong bear the infirmities of the weak, for surely
Offenses will come, but those who love God's law will
Vanquish the reproaches after receiving then as venial,
Especially to those of the household of faith,
	till the weak become strong, because
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,
	what you do to me I will do to you is
Not the love of God nor the Spirit of Christ,
Especially to those of the household of faith-
Who are free to love through the law of the Spirit of Life.
	So when any smite you on the cheek, turn the other
Cheek to him, also, and if any sue you and take away your coat
Offer him your cloak, also.  When any say all
Manner of evil against you falsely, for Christ's sake, and when
Men revile you and persecute you, rejoice, be exceedingly glad,
And pray for them which despitefully use you.  Love your
Neighbors and your enemies, and bless them that curse you;
Do good to them that hate you so that you
May be called the children of the Father;
Especially to those of the household of faith, please your
Neighbor for his good to edification, and provoke your enemy with good,
Till a change comes, for love will suffer long and sometimes wrong.

Up and Out of the Cage

Dabble in the pen for a bit
Eventhough you know it is not worth it.
Not for a moment, not for a dash
In through your skull it is a rat-a-tat-tat.
At the end of the lines the end is the start
Lasting in ink dried, immortal from rot.

Interest has been lost
Now the flow has slowed.

Dispense from the wonder, cast off to the unknown
In floods of floundering frustration and feebleness.
Sink no more because the muddy bottom is found.
Grind to the surface there is nothing that can stop it while
Upscale high rise condos pale in comparison
Inuendo and secrecy is the best trick of the goal so
Swallow the pills and see where they take you and
Eventually a balance of dabble will bring the start to the end.

Diamond in the Rough

Dear heart the love of my life and more,
I adore your eyes that shine when you smile.
After I look deep within I know the score.
My arms long to hold you in loving style.
Our past lives, guided, always intertwined.
Now we have rekindled our affections true.
Diamond in the rough, I could always find.

I pledge my life, light, laughter and love to you 
Now and forever, I request to taste your lips of wine.

Tell the spirit of love, what we plan to do.
Hearing every note of our song-playing fine,
Each day of our life together, just us two,

Reveal of our passion, never needed for anyone.
Our adoration flies from our faces upon this earth.
Universes watch in awe, our devotion won.
Graciously we have bonded in a lifetime of worth.
Having our souls blessed by treasures by the ton.

Behind The Scene- Acrostic

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”.

Killing is the heart paced time
Every egg evolves

Overwhelmed!

Odd sensations

fill me with your love or go away
make the change
stop the pain
my eyes over run with your lose
my heart on your plate

I have nothing to show
Come on man You make me ashamed!!

Solace

S warmed despair,
O paqueness gleaned among cold air,
L ingering…I linger, linger, linger….
A wakening virtue devoured my sleeping soul,
C onjuring my intuition…reviving,
E nlivening, as I kneel down and pray…

Pentecost (as Simon Peter)

Parler en d’autre langues im Gott der Geiste 
Ecstatically, I will elaborate.
Not knowing Joel’s visions you suppose
That we are drunk this morn.  Don’t be enticed.
Evaluate... wine does not cause this trait.
Commitment to this cause that overthrows
Our roaring lion leads us on.  As Christ
So sacrificed for us, we imitate.
Two seven two two octal bits in rows.



Notes on "Pentecost":

The first line starts out in French (English translation = "Speaking in other 
languages") and ends in German (English = "in God, the Spirit").

In the last line, the 4 octal numbers (when broken down to binary) have a 
sequence of 1’s that form a Roman cross, i.e.

2 =   0 1 0  
7 =   1 1 1  
2 =   0 1 0  
2 =   0 1 0 

This was inspired 'picture-message' that was beamed into space by the Arecibo 
radio telescope in 1974, with the idea that mathematics would be the ultimate 
language.

Sister

Someone to share my cares and woes with
I know she is always there to lend a hand
Sure we argue..we are family
Truer friend can never be found as her
Each crisis she is ever ready for
Rare and precious is she

Holy Sabbath Day

Highest God from high Sinai thundering
Offering and sacrifice suddenly suspended
Light and lightening in heaven flashing
Yahweh the breach of earth has mended

Sabbath from creation's seventh day given
Adam first of man by its presence blest
Bringing body and spirit in line with heaven
Blessed to share in the glad Creator's rest
Apostles everywhere celebrate this sign
Tabernacling the mind that only God creates
Holy the rest we share shows the divine

Destiny for man is in the image of this giver
Almighty life bringer, lover and restorer 
Yahweh it's your celebration manifested power.

Who Am I (acrostic rhyme)

Who am I has been the question in my life.
Here within me is a torture, shared by some.
Only my mind knows about my mortal strife.

Angrily my mind fights, while I remain numb.
My heart is stayed, though merrily carries on.

I keep my soul close, segregated from evils con.

Thankful

As each day goes by, I see your face.
The thought of you, brings needed light to this dark place.
Before you, my soul was lost, and confussed.
A novice at love, and the joy it brings.
Your here now, with you comes new found bliss.
Inside my heart, was a slow to sprout seed.
Which is maturing now, off your love it feeds.
I never knew, that one could make another feel so complete.
Like a bird flying through the air, you get the sense of being free.
From young to old, and old to new.
Reasons to be thankful.....just a few.

Possessed

I used to be possessed 
and I didn't even know.
There's times I'd want to go someplace
and I couldn't even go.
Sometimes it was my job
or maybe my responsibility.
I don't know what it was
but I had this inability
to do whatever I wanted.
I was never truly free.
I don't know how it happened
but my possessions possessed me.
Now I've finally reached that stage.
I can give it all away.
Now if the Lord called on me
I could walk with Him today.
Yes I could give it all up for the Lord
though I'm to poor to even sing.
I may have nothing that you see
but I tell you, I have everything.       Amen

Pen of a Ready Writer

Many Days should speak, and multitude of 
Years should teach wisdom, I said.  But

There is a spirit in man:  and the inspiration
Of the Almighty giveth him understanding; therefore,
No prophecy is by the will of man, but holy men of
God speak and write the word as they are moved By the
Unction of the Holy Ghost for the edification and 
Exhortation and comfort of those who will hear and read.

Today you entered into the world
  Realities chosen gift of love for us
    I vow to honor your every sound
      Needing your mom and dad around
        In sickness we will tend to you
          Taking care of those little sad blues
            Young and tender you will be in our hearts eternally...


Fragrance of glory from flowers fields

From heavens throne room of love divine
with softness as the clouds formed above.

Blessed little angelic sweetness

Charming child of delight perfection

So listen sweet little one of mine
heavens missing a sound.
Your tiny voice in the choirs songs

My Valentine

May I take this time and forever more to say I love you?
Your tenderness is that to which no one knows except I.

Victory was mine the day that you came into my heart true.
Always my feelings will grow as the sun rises to the sky.
Letting me share your life and love until beyond the end of time,
Expressing my love for you is always a tremendous celebration.
Now that we have wed and taken words that were so sublime.
To share a life forever thru hard times and good in this creation,
Individuals, we are bound together with love and devotion.
Nearer and nearer we will grow with ever flowing emotion.
Each other bound as one, beyond unnatural or natural commotion.

Amazing strength and honor
Representation of America they do reflect
Merely performing their essential duties
Your family they will proudly protect 

Stamina uniformed with determination
Triumphant exhibition as to what their fighting for
Rising above and beyond the call of duty
One Great Nation’s mission; their cause we must implore 
Never ending patriotism; their colors of honor humbly show 
Gallant loyalty and dedication; our freedom we forever owe

Breathtaking in the morning light
Everything I ever desired
Amazingly sexy in her old blue jeans
Utterly Tantalizing as her smile fills her eyes
Totally capturing my soul
Impossible to ever forget
Full of zest for all things good
Unaware of her Beauty; she knows not vanity
Loyal and Loving to the end of time.

Surrounding us with His grace and tidings

Preying in the Temple

Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves, the
Ones who cannot understand, for everyone for his own gain
Looks to his own way from his quarter.  Should not the 
Vested feed the flocks?  Yet, they kill them that are fed and
Eat the fat.  They clothe themselves with the wool, while the
Sheep are naked and hungry.  These prophets make God’s people err.  They bite.
     They cry, peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths
Is victimized by ravening, for they do plunder and can
Never have enough as greedy dogs; they are all ignorant,
     They are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark;
Sleeping, lying down, and loving to slumber they have not 
Healed the sick neither have they strengthened the diseased. With
Effontery they have not bound up the broken, and their
Edifice is fallen for they have not brought again those driven away.  These
Pharisees have not sought the lost, but ruling with force and cruelty have
Scattered the sheep because there is no real shepherd.
     They have behaved themselves as an hireling, who
Careth not for the sheep and fleeth the face of danger and 
Leaveth the sheep to wander through mountains and high hills
Of the earth to become further prey to every beast of the field.
Therefore, ye shepherds, ye den of thieves, God saith, I require my flock at your
Hand and will cause you to cease from visions and feeding yourselves.
I will deliver my flock from your mouth, and they shall be a prey for beasts
No more.  I will set one Shepherd over them; He shall feed them. I will be their 
God accepting them and their offerings, and I will make them joyful in My house.

DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY

Disarrangement overwhelms our company
Years of family tales to tell 
Scars from previous combats 
Fierce conviction handed down so well
United in chaotic conditions
No responsibility for actions revealed 
Typical disorganized reunions 
Irrational behavior tightly sealed
Order is not on the menu
Nor is the tranquility we all long for
A slice of bitter pie we offer
Longing to indulge sour pastry more

Forever we’re united
As all family members should be
Maybe my families not perfect
Innocent love is all I can see
Leaning on each others shoulders
Yesterday or today, we’ll always disagree

Losing Gravity

There shall be marrying and giving in marriage.  There shall be planting, 
Harvesting, buying, selling  and building, and there shall be 
Eating and drinking in the day when the Son of man is revealed; so, then,

Remember lot's wife.
After hearing the warning with chance to escape she was mindful of the 
Possessions and livelihood of Sodom, which she treasured in her heart, and
Turning herself to look back she became a pillar of salt; so let not him
Upon the house whose gods are inside and Him in the field consider anything to
Return back to take it away in that day, for those who are gravitated towards
Earth shall be left, but those who look up shall be taken to where their treasure is.

LOVE LOST

This ache for you
I cannot set free
This ache for you,
what can be

I yearn for you
I burn for you
This fire,
Cannot dim
This desire

I breathe you in,
soft scent
Love it so
The day you went
The day I let you go

My world,
turned
Inside I curled
My love,
Not returned

Such sweetness
Gone away
This emptiness
Nothing I can say

This longing to be.......
To be with you
Hear my plea
Dont flee
Stay with me
I want you too

The day I let you go,
crushed my heart so
I cannot set free
What could be

JESUS CHRIST

Jehovah once sent down his only true son for the price of our sin to be relieved
Eternally promising his salvation to every Christian that will simply believe
Symbolizing God in human form, he walked with us here in the shoes of man
Understanding about our temptations - yet pure and righteous he would stand
Sacrificing it all just to save our lost souls - upon the cross his own life he gave

Creating hope for every sinner that is blessed by his mercy when they are saved
Holy is his sweet and precious name that really must not ever be taken in vain
Read all about him and what he stood for - It is found in the Bible written plain
Instrumentally was used by our Father above to give everyone a fighting chance
Saving our sins if we will just ask and repent - He forgives without second glance
Testament for believers with faith in the Lord - eternal life is what we will soon find

But our time's running out to get right with God and no one wants to be left behind

Unanswered Prayer

Judge this.  We know that since our Father in Heaven hears
Us when we pray according to the will of His Son and in His
Name, whatsoever we ask, He will do it faithfully; so, we
Know that we have the petitions we desired of  Him.  Yet, 

Many have not because they ask not, while some others ask
Amiss to consume it upon their lust, while sinning or warring
In their members.  Then some pray in doubt or without persistence,
Lest, in their desire to prosper and be in health God would hear them.

Of the pure in heart.  Their

Will follow them
Into Life after
Life everlasting and
Life in this time.  They will

Receive
An hundredfold
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
Use and
Revile you and as you

Lay up these treasures
In Heaven, you will heap coals of Fire upon 
Enemies' heads

Until good
