mother WHO i HATE

Mother, mother can't you see?
How much are you putting the needle,
Deep inside of  my heart?
I know the pain won't go away!
I know you are blind to see the truth!

Pain pain pain,
When will you go away?
Anger, hate & discouragement
Always comes my way!
What am I supposed to do?
I feel alone deep inside,
I feel the empty pressure against my chest,
In a prison of hate,
I am sick of the people who I love,
Betraying me & ruining the trust,
God above who sees your actions,
I hope He will never forgives you,
For you who keep on sin.

One day you will see 
Throw my eyes & my pain,
One day you will stop on pretend,
Realize your mistakes,
It will be too late,
I will be gone far away,
I will never come back again!

To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh

What is my hope in this life?
Without You, under the skies, there’s only hell.
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Rejections, taunts, helplessness, all kinds of strife,
People, homes, values, all things in peril,
What is my hope in this life?

You expose my heart to tempests; I cry
In deep anguish, I beseech and kneel -
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Stir my heart to seek You; let not my spirit dry,
For with your absence in this tough duel -
What is my hope in this life?

My little mind cannot equal your wisdom so high,
Amid confusion I am a wondering, wandering fool,
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

Helping grace and love you will abundantly supply;
Under the heavens - will be glory eternal.
What is my hope in this life -
To You, O Lord, I beg and sigh!

**Inspiration from Romans 8:35-39 "...Nothing can separate us from the Love 
of God..."

This poem is offered to the people of Iraq ( the Yazidis and other minorities) 
going through persecution. Let us pray  that they may have the strength to 
face all the adversities confronting them as God envelops them with His 
immense love and mercy.

The Helper

Do not leave me alone in this darkness.
We rave and rant in suffering, who won’t?
Dwell in me and come help me to bear this.

Men of the world know better than this, bliss!
Take pleasure from life, and that’s it! But, don’t!
Do not leave me alone in this darkness.

Knowledge and power is world’s raw justice.
Without a reason is simply a taunt.
Dwell in me and come help me to bear this.

Wealth is the key to health and happiness.
Life is a reverie, money can paint.
Do not leave me alone in this darkness.

Self-contentment is utter completeness.
There isn’t any need for You. A feint!
Dwell in me and come help me to bear this.

You are my Helper in this somberness;
Incompleteness becomes liberating.
Do not leave me alone in this darkness;
Dwell in me and come help me to bear this.

My Villanelle Prayer

Heaven open my eyes so I may see.
My soul grows bitter as taste of black tea.
Please take my wicked ways, away from me.

Heavy my burden, with my heart so gray,
For ever increasing my sins are they.
Heaven open my eyes so I may see.

Fools upon fools I've let litter my day
Blindly leading me into sinful play.
Please take my wicked ways, away from me.

Darkness has ventured, my life is in fray
I pray let me please raise my head to say
Heaven open my eyes so I may see.

As I fear earthward travels Heavens sleigh
Send pity, for I am the Devil's prey.
Please take my wicked ways, away from me.

See me, my Father, how my heart does weigh
Please bless me now Lord with your tears, I pray.
Heaven open my eyes so I may see.
Please take my wicked ways, away from me.

Price of Gain

I don't want to gain the world as a whole 
To be blinded by that which does not stay 
Only to end up losing my soul. 

What is it that I am expected, this role - 
Expectations to walk a line a certain way 
I don't want to gain the world as a whole. 

Living up to everyone's ideas is taking its toll 
Wondering what exactly I will have to pay 
Only to end up losing my soul. 

Do this, buy that, be him, be her, who's in control? 
This life spins, my heart breaks in dismay 
I don't want to gain the world as a whole 

Sell out to the highest bidder: this world's goal. 
Listening to what they have to say, 
Only to end up losing my soul. 

Seeing is believing, hearts black as coal, 
Lord, help me find a different game to play. 
I don't want to gain the world as a whole 
Only to end up losing my soul.
