rebel

Games before homework,
Going to bed after twelve,
pop before breakfast,
turns to drugs at twenty-one,
sex before marrige,
and acohol at thirteen.
Tonight rebelions unite!

Road Trip

a ride with Dino

        on his red motorino

                           wind blows in our hair
                                                   
                                                 holding tightly to his chest
                                                        
                                                                      
                                                                       singing love songs in  the rain





                                                                                                                     Charma

Not Too Late

                                            Wednesday afternoon
                                            Blue fruits from the trial
                                          Smacks and hacks for sure
                                          Learning do from failure
                                         Learn from yesterday,live today,hope for tomorrow

GOING BACK IN TIME

One last dream is left...
something I've pursued for long:
to go back in time
and see myself a young man,
to get rid of this madness!

for what he has done to me

About time

About time you show up 

About time you help out 

About time you comfort me 

About time you decide to step up

About time you realized 

About time i that i left 

About time you felt lost 

Because with out me 

Your not everything you say

I was your world, and you weren't mine 

So listen now and hear out loud 

I miss you, but i never knew you 

This me telling you 

Now its time 

To go on your own 

While i go on my own.......


- samip mehta 


for those you cant say good bye...

VIEW OF FLUSHING MEADOW PARK

A huge hemisphere,
a lake two and half miles long,
many shady trees,
cars on Grand Central Parkway...
happy kids on swings and slides.


It's very quite here,
people walking and chatting
in the greenest park,
they're safe even after dark...
it's the perfect haven! 


Nighttime seems daytime
when lights shine on all faces
watching a play, or
listening to pop or rock...
what a view from my window!

Slang

Created by kids
special words, hidden phrases
communication
 the meaning across so quick
adults blinded by culture

never healing wounds

Could it be heart brake
Which gags this young girls soul
Never casing pain
Shoved in her face everyday
That aids this wound  which must stay

The Artist

A gifted artist,
Now leaves behind all his toys;
Though fragile he is,
His ambition makes him strong;
Yet, remain humble to all…

(Pour Kevin, l’artiste de Juan-les-Pins, France)

Kiss

The first kiss is best

only time will improve it

love is key for it

we all have a different touch

the first is the most special

Joshua

This beautiful boy
is, on his tiptoes, a man.
An innocent man
with silver, wrapped gifts of words
hailing the wind, to listen...

Teenager's Thoughts

Look at me today
Don’t wait until tomorrow
I am here right now
Waiting to be loved by you
Waiting to be held by you
