Alien In My Own World

I’m an alien in my own world
I think only I can see from above
I see the entire Earth
I see people, but no love

I try to tell them 
They’re the aliens in this world…
This world was built to be loved
And yet all they do is hurt…

Look around…the world is round!
It is spinning for us!
For me…
Because there’s not many humans to be seen…

I know I’m not alone though
Humanity will never die…
That’s something that I know!

You created districts…
You ripped humanity into pieces
Now we’re fighting like we’re beasts
I mean…I’m from the Middle East…trust me I’ve seen…

I’ve seen the value of one’s life
Destroy a home for a dime
Destroy humanity and it doesn’t count as a crime…
and yet…I’m out of mind?

At the darkest time

At the darkest time On the darkest day, You took my hand, You took me to play. I thought it strange, I thought it wise That there in the wood The secret lies. But then I saw it The flicker of light, The sound of birds As they took to their flight. The ray of sunshine Filled your eyes, Around us filled With silent lies. My smile was met From cheek to cheek, Your hand around mine As your eyes grew weak. I see your face Amongst the light, The day that soon Transformed to night. I’m alone now And alone I’ll stay Till the moon flips over And the sky turns grey. But the hand that took, Took me to play, Is there by my heart And there it will stay.

Tears of the Broken

Introduction: At some point of our lives, someone close to us departs off to the next
phase. We think of the good times and try not to think the bad; but sometimes it haunts us
back to how we responded in a naive way for our juvenile wishes. And sometimes we see them
in our dreams at the utmost optimism and glory. But the fact that we get to realize what
we did back then may have cherished and broken their souls in some ways, we always wonder
if we could alter the deeds that wounded their affection in our times of immaturity…And
pray that we get a second chance to do so for our next life. *the first two lines have some inspiration from another piece*



Even if our hearts were as strong as a storm, we’d still feel a little bit sad Knowing that we’ve lost our grandfather, our friend, our dad. For so many years, we’ve felt their presence In so many ways, we’ve felt complete, But truly, even if we deny – We sometimes skip a heartbeat. Our lives are nothing but their memories and their art, Orbiting us each day, reminding us of who we are Where we stand and to whom we belong, We pray and cry up oceans for them night after night Praying to be together just one more time, in the worlds of light. But yes you are so fortunate, that you got to leave, You’ve made it to the greater step, I pray for us to meet. May your soul be blessed and may it shine brighter than the sun, Again and again ‘I love you’ it’s not a lie, I may not have said it that much But I hope you knew inside, even if I may have been unkind as such Nothing is left for us to do but feel the tears stream down our eyes For we, once in a while have broken their hearts with one or two lies, Their face glows and vividly fades away from our dreams those nights That’s when we fall, fall down to our knees, pray for we could have changed The ways we reacted back in those days. Thoughts of those moments, thoughts of their sorrow smile Now makes us realize how we never cared, For that to overcome, we treasure the good times we’ve shared, The times we’ve heard them say “You’ve made me proud” The times we’ve felt them lay their hands, oh so be crowned. Their tender touch, their forgiveness Their blessings for us and their happiness, We pray to feel it all again Bring it all again, To the eternal life, after this time.

Easter Poem

Children and adults alike look forward to Easter,but for Different reasons.
           Children celebrate Easter with thoughts of Easter egg hunts,the Easter 
bunny,and baskets of bright colored grass,and candy as far as the eye can see
              Adults celebrate Easter in a variety of ways.
             Some with thoughts of a renewal of the Earth from it’s long winter 
slumber,with green grass in there yards and birds singing in there trees.
             While others celebrate with thoughts of the resurrection and ascension of 
Christ,once again reconfirming there faith.
              But for me,this Easter I celebrate with thoughts of our soldiers in Iraq,and 
thoughts of living in a world free from fear and terrorism.
              This world is possible my friends.Anything is possible if you just 
believe,cause if you believe in something strong enough,how can it not be true.

                                             Happy Easter Everyone

Drops of May Weather Storms

I know your pain 
Although I don't know what's happening, 
I can still feel the vain. 
Seems like the beginning is the ending 

One moment there's bliss 
It feels much like a wet kiss. 
But out of nowhere you see a mirror, 
"It felt so real," as you stand there alone. 

You try to make sense of it all; 
Yet everything begins to fall. 
"AHHHH!" you scream to the top of your lungs. 
Your blue eyes are running waterfalls. 

It hurts me to see a single tear, 
You're not the only one to hide in the room. 
Swallow your tears, don't let it drop, 
A splash will only cause more bitter props. 

But like I say, 
Tomorrow will always bring another day. 
So Faith, throw away your thorns, 
anticipating a happy God-given next day.

September in Portugal

Portugal in September. 

Perfect translucent day and I can see the peculiar nature again, 
as it is no longer a blur of glaring sunlight. It is like meeting 
an old friend, one who was rumored to have died, in a country 
I will not see again. Evergreens, carob and olive trees lost in 
the mist of time, forever alone in the transience of seasons. 
I also see glimpses of the sea it doesn’t interest me, not today 
anyway, but I do notice it is deep blue and has white sails on. 
On my scooter I drive across a narrow bridge they have been 
working on so it can take heavy lorries, a road is being built 
somewhere out of sight.  Wish I were a painter, fair clouds on 
azure sky, could be smoke signals sent by an Indian tribe yet 
to be discovered, I see the past and future at the same time. 
Bewildering, do I drive in a landscape of ancient dreams?
I better stop find at a café, drink a “Bica” (coffee) before I fade 
into the mystery of nature and can’t find my way back home.

OUR WEDDING VOWS

page turning suspense filled the vaulted sepulchral air
   ushering the veiled spouse to be
while afar off trumpets did blare
   (arranged by the well known matchmaker Harriet Kuritsky)
creating the ambience analogous to a renaissance faire
   yet contrasted in that this bachelor and other men related to me
segregated with females and males at a set distance away i.e. not physically 
near
   dictated by mandates of the Hebrew coda stemming from Moses biological tree
which separate quarters ample enough to spare
  until the proper toll of the bell would peal accompanied by yippee!
 
after Rabbi Boyce officiated for Matthew Scott 
   and Abby Robin, the crowd exalted with cheers
of L’Chiam with chutzpah oompah’s sizzling and hot.
 
klezmer musicians played schmaltz
which accompanied the hoopla as couples did waltz.
 
all the while family, friends and relatives blessed the new groom and bride 
   although highly orthodox, the men removed respective skullcap 
more commonly known as the yarmulke some plain others dyed
   women and children broke out in traditional dance and song while other did 
clap
exemplifying Yahweh to deliver mazal tov and shalom as spiritual guide
   to the pronounced husband and wife who pledged their troth in a snap.
 
toward conclusion of this typical Jewish wedding, a full goblet of kosher red wine
   got tossed in the air
this (in conjunction with crush of the emptied wine glass) communicated a sign
   and marshaled the crowd to begin a local Jerusalem exodus symbolic and 
clear.
 
as the newlyweds blissfully and radiantly strolled arm in arm
   and exited the Synagogue, the euphoric and excited crowd
tossed handfuls of uncle Ben’s unconverted rice grown from a nearby organic 
farm
a chauffeur waited to shuttle them to their honeymoon location
   passersby waved and bowed e'en thy first grade school marm!

IN THE QUIET OF THE NIGHT

To lie here... 
With you 
In the quiet of the night 
Sleeping softly... 
Near... 

All I can hear 
Is you... 
Sleeping softly 
What you do... 
In the quiet of the night 

Gentle loving... 
Breathing your scent 
All through... 
The quiet of the night 
Sleeping with you... 

The curve of your back 
Smell of your hair... 
In the quiet of the night 
My heart, laid bare 
My body... 
Feeling you there 

Sleeping softly... 
In the quiet of the night 
Where I want to be, 
until dawn light

You Weren't There..

Though you may be sad loosing a loved one..
You weren't there When God lost his only son..

You may think you have many a debtor...
You weren't there when Jesus was betrayed with thirty pieces of silver...

Though you may be weary and laden with despair..
You didn't witness when they tormented him and didn't care...

Although you may be in agony and immense pain..
You weren't there when the Lamb was fatally slain.

You may think that you cannot carry on and life is grim..
You weren't there when they mocked and spit on him..

Although you may have too many worries at hand..
Look down, you weren't there when they put nails in CHRIST'S bleeding hands.

Although you think you have been badly scorned...
You weren't there when they forced on his head, a crown of thorns..

Though you may feel that everything in your life is going wayside.
You weren't there to feel the sword that pierced HIS bleeding side.

Though you may think that you really don't want to live.
Christ loved us enough to die on the cross, and he will forgive.
