this knitted scarf:
a treasure beyond worth,
that hides within each woven stitch
her heart.

Beneath The Mask

 
(Cinquain Chain) Feelings May come and go Some pretend them so well Hiding theirs under the thick mask Most of the time They wear. Conflicts Are born,you hurt People when you pretend Love and feelings that you don't feel Donning a mask All time. True self Is never shown Some choose not to do so Believing's not important- Then Love,kindness just Gets lost. Dorian Petersen Potter aka ladydp2000 copyright@2014 October,31,2014

Fat kings

They laugh while you complain indulging in the dough made of your sweat, and tears, they're out for blood. they sit On their gold throne fattened off the harvest of hard labor by those who truly invest. Heart pressed your sleeves rolled up to allow more sunshine that another might fare better with their life. They stand right by your side but not to support you They wait for your sweat, tears and blood to pour. Your aim has not been reached your heart has felt the pain of deception; while you complain They laugh. Cinquain suite © 06.05.12

70 million

My words has fade away,
The beauty within writting poems,
Has lost my ways,
Sadness walks in my way,
Tears run in my face,
Feeling down here and there,
Depressed night by day,
Wishing I can change things in an instane,
Wishing to be a real superman,
Wishing to save my people in my country,
It really hurts me deep inside my heart,
To see young and innocent people die,
For freedom we never had,
70 million people in Iran,
Struggle for 30 years,
Protesters every where,
Around the world we live in today,
They say,"United Kingdom pay more attention"
People see the news from Iran,
How come no body is a leader in this world?
Why is everybody scared?
To make the first move?
Why can't be just over,
I pray to God and his powers,
To give my people: hope, freedom etc.
To live in this earth with joy and happiness.

Eyes On Me???

Eyes on me,
People watching,
In my direction?
Can't they look somewhere else?

Feeling uneasy,
Discomfart rises, too.
Afraid to mess up,
Afraid to fail.

Eyes are on me.
I feel pale.
I freeze.

I don't want
The attention.
