Smile

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

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.

CYBERCRIME LAW

Can't they understand that its just too much
You post or tweet but what you write you watch
Bullied by lawmakers into censoring one's post
Exactly the thing that we hate the most
Reason flew away when they made this law
Carelessly ignoring that it has a flaw
Reminding us of the days of Proclamation 1081
Ignorant lawmakers forget that those days are gone
Mindless of the freedom of speech that it would kill
Entirely forgetting that this is against Juan's will

Lawmakers who passes law but does not think
Adieu to you for your careers will stink
Wait for the next elections and watch your vote count sink


A new law against cybercrime was passed in the Philippines and it took effect last Oct.3.
This law includes a very vague section against libel and in effect it is going to curtail online freedom of speech or expression. Filipinos are against it and are clamoring for an amendment. If you are wondering about the name juan which was used in this poem then I'd like to inform those from different countries that Juan refers to the Filipino people.

Gypsy King

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

Happiness (acrostic)
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 :) :) :)

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!

Easter

Earths people, it is time to wake up, the ‘Prince’ is alive! 
Ascension available, access through your heart 
Seek and you shall find!

Eternity given
Rise to the occasion, celebrate the gift of life, bond, with ‘our lord Jesus’ and ‘our Universal Father in heaven, building a bridge, experiencing kinship, between human and spirit

                     ***Happy Easter Everyone***

VIDEOGAMES

Video games control kids minds
In a lesser way than parents do
Definitely gives a channel for frustration
Extreme aggravation, or even humiliation
Or allows them to explore new world and improve reflexes
Games are just that, they're games
A parents job is to take control and if they don't agree with it
Make your kid play something else. 
Especially when they're adolescents, they need 
Structure. If parents don't provide it then we're all in trouble.

O-n our way to love spot.

B-enders of time we be
L-oving eachoda without
E-nd till we turned to mist





Note: 
Iwas moved by different 
attempts some wonderful 
poets made. It spurred 
me into action.
Hope It was well penned.

TRAVEL

To get lost in the world’s everlasting trance 
Rarely moving, afraid you’ll miss a second glance
Amazed by all the sights that you see
Venturing to any place makes you feel free
Eloquent the old cities will always stay
Love for traveling can never be washed away

Feeling Again

Feelings that were dead, and forgotten are being resurrected.
 Things I never thought possible are becoming reality.
 The hallow feeling I felt is disappering, almost as if a dream.
 New and exciting is true, comfortable and real too. 
I lay awake reveling in this bed of mine, wondering when my time would come.
 Feelings that were lost and dead thought to be gone, are now growing.

On The Track

Being on the roll bring them a thought of eloquence,
Exempting the fact things in the giant tournaments,
Inside of which lies the origin of originality and dexterity;
Nexus, so true of either being alive or dead
Gentle souls, to be, should stay on the track.

A free man

It began as a struggle many years ago
 The struggle that only the brave fought for years
 It was the dream to them
 A dream they wanted to leave for their young


 It is today that make the accomplishments of their fight
 The fight that thousands sacrifice their lives for
 It is today where a free man wanders on earth fearlessly

 Today their dream has manifested 
As the dawn has come to a nation
 A nation that has grown from strength to strength

 He walks with his head held up high
 Happiness covers his pure innocence
 He is a free man of South Africa
 Black as coal and strong as the lion

 This is the land of all people who lives
 And share great history together.
 This is the country filled with wonderful people
 I love my country

ROAD TRIP

Riding across the country with my best friend,
Off road trails then back on pavement again.
Always loving the wind blowing through our hair,
Doing as we wish without a worry or a care.

The sun comes up and then quickly goes down,
Rarely finding the time to even look around.
If we should blink our eyes for a tad too long,
Perhaps... tis a delightful case of directions gone wrong.


Contest~Kim Merryman~ROAD TRIP

live a litlle

 <   >crawling out of my shell 
         i tremble to keep my balance
         charging towards my freedom
         screaming my silent shouts
         i let go off all negativity
         my spirit will never know 
         captivity
         no bars will ever hold me prisoner
         i demand to live a little
         so much i desire to live a dream
         with my eyes open i watch
         this rose of life blossom before me
         so sweet i can taste it
         i have to live a little

Satan On Satin

*Acrostic*

*Satan On Satin*

Sinister movements enhance  
Advancements. Yoga pants,
Tight thighs, erotic prance.
Attraction at first glance.
Now, let me see you belly dance!

Opulent in your sexual fixations and you've
Nominated me because of my self confidence!

Sexy as hell and loves to dominate, that 
Apple bottom makes me want to procreate.
Teasing, kissing my abdomen, 
Increased flow rate!
Now, let me see your belly dance

Political Corruption

Partisanship hinders compromise
Oblivious voters put cronies into power
Likeability trumps substance
Idiotic commentators bicker
Tension builds amongst the people
Idealouges pollute the system
Charming individuals manipulate

HIDDEN WOUNDS

Honestly, I do not know how to exist most days.
I survive each day, with memories of,
Damages done in battle.
Destruction, chaos, horror;
Everywhere I turn I see violence and death.
Nightmares haunt me every night.

Wounded warrior, you cannot see my scars.
Over there is where my mind returns to;
Useless is how I feel sometimes when the tears flow.
No, you may never understand my battle,
Demons surround me always, invading every safe place.
Survivor; I served for freedom’s sake.

Weekend Acrostic Poem

Whoop with delight as all the time is yours
Enjoy life to the full
Eat out -  you don’t have to cook
Keep up with friends and have a natter
Explore new places
Need time to totally chill
Dread the alarm clock going and the working week is back

Relax and Kick Back

Relax your mind from any troubles that come your way
Easier said than done…but it’s required of us to have leisure time once in a great while! I have no problem with that whatsoever!
Laze around and put your mind at ease please? Hang out with your friend and have a cup of tea or coffee or any alcoholic beverage! There’s plenty to choose from! There are soft drinks in the refrigerator! There’s orange juice? Milk? Water with ice or without ice perhaps? Please, tell me or I’ll drive you and myself nuts! 
And…simply…kick back! Chillax! Everything’s gonna work out in the end for a purpose that’s beyond brilliant! Just let it be…for now!
XOXO’s will be sent to you by a mystery girl (Your secret admirer sends you XOXO’s to you in other wacko words)! Oooh…I wonder who’s that lucky person! Do you have the hearts for her, young man? Whisper ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in my ears and I won’t tell a single soul, I swear from the bottom of my heart!

Allow yourself to get out of your comfort zone and explore the Joyous Island – surely you’ll know where the wind blows!~~~
Never lose touch of wisdom and wise sayings from the elder you’ve met somewhere in your past…use your time wisely, good sir, and don’t forget to be carefree!
Danger might come our way! But, be happy – that’s what it’s s’posed to be, pal! Dangers are but for a moment, so have no fear, dear boy!

Kick back and let yourself unwind for a time! Let everything solve on its own – take a break from the job and God will finish our job in no time if we place it in his hands, we’ll witness his mesmerizing miracles
I’m sorry! I’m so sorry to hear that you’re currently unemployed! I wish you luck in your future findings and your search for jobs of course!
Chit chat with your companion and speak your mind to him…oh buddy – make sure to spend time with each other and do some rather epic activities 
Kill the fears and reign over your phobias and be brave instead! Everything will be OK! No need to feel this overwhelming amount of dread!

Believe me – I’m not a pro at being worry-free, but I am able to give you tips about how to decrease your anxiety (I hope you take them into consideration and I hope it proves to be helpful in your daily life)
Ah…right! The title is redundant – silly me...I should’ve caught that before writing this composition, but it’s too late now – this verse is about to be done and it would be another chore to change it up! Funny, I just noticed the title and its “accident” – that, my friend, is heelarious! 
Chilly- the weather is… you should’ve worn a sweater or something of that type of clothing! 
Kangaroos spend their leisure time, hopping happily – will you do the same or get all worked up all over again?

Broken promises a better days love

Yesterday I found a tear stained love letter                                                                       All the promises how it all would be better
My eyes are very clear and dry now 
Troubles of then are troubles of now 
Seemed so long ago those days surreal
So I found a letter of tear stained love unsealed                                                              Far back in the recesses of my broken heart 
Away from the lock and key emotions restart

Now tears flowing growing from a fruitful life
It was not meant that you were to be my wife
Looks can be deceiving giving the benefit of the doubt
As to set it free if it returns it's yours it never was it turns out
Though as cliche as the love crying in the rain
They're with me even today just memories unlike you
Here to stay is another keeping promises away from the blue 
To see the tears of joy streaming down my face 
Stay awhile witness the arms of a loving embrace 

Oh I found a tear stained love letter 
I think it is from you trying to make things better
Believe me it was kept all this time with care 
In the locket of my heart to one day share
Yesterday I found a letter of tear stained love

Freedom Is Not Free

Friend of freedom is close at hand,
Roaming the battlefields across our land,
Engulfed by whisps of smoke that somehow pervade,
Entrenched by the enemies' live grenades,
Directing their tracer fire across the sector,
Over the bloody scene carnage is a spectre,
Many have perished because freedom is not free!

God saves us

Gods Grace
Opens our hearts and  our  mind
Delivers us from sin of every kind

Savation he gave  us for free
Abiding in you and  Abiding in me
Victory came when he conquored the grave
Every life he came to save
Saviour of the world

Unique in every way
Strength he gives us  to face every day


if the son has set us free we are free indeed

never will he leave us
never will he forsake us

Amen

Salute The Veterans (Acrostic)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting



 
Ideals are lessons we live
 
Sharing new moments in time;
All the love we have to give
Looks better to they who find.
Understanding to love, we need
To remember the soldiers too;
Each of them fought and freed
 
Those in places who were subdued.
Holding onto the memories within
Expressing your thanks to them all;
 
Venture up and let love begin
Everyday that they live to call.
The veterans and soldiers need to see
Each man or woman give a thank you;
Remember they fought for Liberty
As freedom rings with our Red, White, and Blue.
Now's the time to let them know,
Sharing with them our freedom will grow.

Tolerance

Today it seems to be about others rights.
Our minds have set out for certain fights.
Listen, I never want to intrude on you.
Everyone has rights, this is indeed true.
Reality, we cannot meet every ones desires.
After all some ones rights will be lost in fires.
Now and again we have to give into nature.
Creating acceptance for certain nomenclature,
Even we need to tolerate, our fellow human creature.

Freedom to Choose

For everyone there is freedom of choice
Remember that everyone has a voice.
Each person has liberty forever more.
Exemplary words will always be the score.
Do not hesitate to say what’s on you mind.
Only remember the goal, be careful and kind.
Make every effort to not block out and be blind.

Take your respect and share with all humankind.
Our freedom managed, on what others find.

Choose to impart your words, on others you see.
Have enough will power for theirs to remain free.
Our freedoms are shared with everyone in agree.
Our freedoms always gave, in total degree.
Since the statue in the bay, so given us to be,
Each person’s guardian, receptor, she’s lady liberty.

Bliss

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!)

E - first part of EXPENSE series

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!

S - sixth part of EXPENSE series

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!!

Spirit of Independence

Securing the welfare of humanity was the key.
Preparing for the worst, with the best yet to see,
Independence is worth anything, to be free.
Rich of blood, the first to know it was Royalty.
Intelligence was what drove it to you and me.
Total freedom never been honored to thee.

Our blessings are richer then ancestors decree.
Fences unblocked, time will decide what will flee.

Ideas change, but basics, will always remain to be.
Not just honor from death, peace will continue to plea.
Disillusion of many, what true freedom brings to degree.
Each of us must set in our hearts, peace, do not you agree.
Preparing to lay waste to all our selfish and childish debris,
Enchantingly the hopes that all good things come in threes,
Never delivering any work, to win, the remaining jubilee.
Demanding it will never come from any political party.
Each of us may never buy it or find on any marquis.
Not yet to be supplied or gave in any major quantity,
Challenges of this “Spirit of Independence” are our destiny.
Exoneration of all our guilt will teach us its identity.

Triumphant Leaders Part 1

Congo man from Jamaica, deviant slave
Rudeboy, fall out of an Atlantic disaster
Imminent giver fruting the amber wave
Sometimes I see you at the Boston harbor
Pining at the shipless sea, it's an African agony.
Ultimately history tells your whipless role 
Sweet like jazz and trumpet's symphony.

America heard the first shot echoed, the bold
Thundering around the world. It was a nervous act.
Truly defensive, based on a brutal fact
Unjust conditions would not bring you back
Calmly to plantations you bought your freedom from
Kings should kill for greater than a sip of rum
So fire your shot, follow old Bookman brave in the track.

Bookman too, with Accompong Maroon blood
Over the British slavemasters wield his wrath
Odious to them was shipped across the flood
Kingly to Guyana to carve black freedom's path.
Mentor of Touissant when shipped again
Away from his revolution to cut Haiti's cane
Native, Afro-Jamaican, he changed world history.

Cudjoe missed you bookman when you were gone
Unto him my grandfather great swam back again
Diving overboard, hands carving in water of dawn
Jubilee on a machete through the Cockpit terrain
O Cudjoe, the bushes still whisper sweetly your name
Eternal freedom giver from whom Crispus came
