Your Inner Song

Be thankful for each morning's sunrise,
See beauty in nature's reveal,
That beauty is also inside you,
Open up and see how you feel,
Let kindness be part of your being,
Make someone else smile everyday,
Even if darkness surrounds them,
Your compassion will light up their way,
Show grace and humility always,
Be patient and loyal and true,
Don't try to be all to the many,
But always be you to the few,
Stand firm at times of challenge,
Maintain your wisdom and poise,
Be attuned to nature's rhythm,
Amid life's trials and noise,
Be proud of the love you are giving,
Spread it equal with strangers and kin,
Your resolve will sometimes be tested,
But your strength will come from within,
Don't dwell on mistakes or regrets now,
Or dread what tomorrow might bring,
Let this moment be all that consumes you,
And may the world hear your inner voice sing.

Yes, I'm Sure

Come with me
take my hand,
let us be
unknown travelers in the land.
Of lustful love
make me yours,
open the treasure of your love
yes I'm sure.

Winter

The snow is falling,
like a cotton from the sky.
Solitude drew me.

Copyright © beth malayao | Year Posted 2017

What is and could be

Whisper my name like a song,
Let me know where I belong.
On your lips, with breathlessness,
On my heart print happiness.
When my eyelids flutter closed,
All of me to you exposed,
When you watch me timidly
When you think that I don’t see,
When I drop my gaze and blush,
When my heart beats in a rush,
Call my name and hold my gaze,
With shyness that your eye betrays

West Texas Wildflowers

West Texas Wildflowers
Waving in the wind
Weather-worn whispering
Whirling warnings to my window
As I water my wallflower
The weeds won’t stop growing
So I whistle the wisdom
I once welcomed
As I wish it away
Watch me wane
As it wastes me away
I’m wilting
With the willows
Weeping
Weakening in this web 
woven around me
I’ve quit wondering
What a wasted world
I’m surrounded by 
Windows but the walls are all warping
Who waged this war not worth winning?
Will all you want
But wait as you will if you are not working
No time for wandering
I work because I’m weltering
But I’ll always grow weary of the wyrd 
The west Texas wildflowers warned me

Walker

She floats up and down the heartbreak sidewalks
Hungry, looking for the golden ticket from the
Next john that might not hurt her but instead
Rescue her from the depravity of the life she lives.

Everyone is happy, everyone is free, she thinks
Coasting and mingling with her fellow walkers
Of the night....a typical situation....she vibrates
And is alive with her erotic beauty and she

Is frightening to look at in all her glory....Only
If she had glory, to leave this tunnel of love
That never ends....her Ned to produce, to
Buy the little vial of prudence, is foremost.

She bends over cars smiling, glowing, so 
Sincere in her effort to offer the family man theFantasy of rebirth and explosion of a frenzied, Sweaty moment to be sent home sated and guilty.

She is so lonely for what it used to be like....
Was she ever a child playing with strings and
Golden things or did she just one day manifest
Herself into this life of solitude and ugliness?

Daylight comes blaring the start of another
Dingy day and crystal pipes to ease her
Guilt and shame with the knowledge that
Darkness will come and she will walk her mile.

She said:
Look into my heart and see how deep you cut me?
Look me in my eyes and see that are not happy.
Oh,so you laughing and thinking that it is oh so funny.
Please remember laughing when I no longer text you back fast.
Please remember this when i'm just over you completely. 
No,really please remember this when I no longer look in your direction or when I stop seeing if you are okay.
Remember this when you see me smiling and ignoring you.
Oh...What's wrong you’re no longer laughing?
Did I make you realize how easy you could slip from my memories.
No,don't reach for me now. You’re now in my past. Your history.
 
He said:
She told me look in her heart and I saw her pain.
She told me look in her eyes and I saw the hurt.
I wanted so badly to hold her.
I wanted to make her angry at me just so I can have a reason to hold her.
Am I worth her time any longer.
I made her cry and wasted her time for long enough.
I guess I deserve it.
I love her too much to let her go without putting up a fight.
Reaching for her she backs away.
I lost her.

Her heart says: 
I love him! I can't do this you’re tearing me apart. Just give him one last time he might change. Don't give up on everything you two have built together. One last chance...
 
Her mind says: 
This is what's best for you. You can't keep going around letting him play you. Don't turn around! If he wants you he will come chasing after you. Keep walking. You can do this...

His heart says: 
Go stupid! Run after her and make things better. Fix it! Your broke her heart and now she's done with you. You love her...

Unwelcome guest

The wren sings the dirge,
An unwelcome guest, we fear,
Goodbye my true love.

Tragic Life


TRAGIC LIFE / TRAGIC DEATH ~ 
     A Holocaust Story


The odds were stacked against us
With hearts that beat so strong
Our only crime was loving God
Please tell me how that's wrong

The soldiers beat the wooden door
As my mom began to cry
I've never seen my dad so scared
And I wasn't sure just why

We ran fast, and then we hid
For I know it seemed like years
We carried with us nothing
Except paralyzing fears

The soldiers, when they found us
They screamed "We found the Jews"
We knew we couldn't fight 
If we did, we'd only lose

They took us to a place
The place was called "the camp"
We were each assigned a number
Which on our arms was stamped


My mother and my father
Both grew very thin
They soon became just a shell
Of who they once had been

And then one day I lost them
To a room suffused with gas
They took most of my people
And murdered them in mass

Millions of the chosen lives
Senselessly were lost
At the hands of one called Hitler
And the tragic HOLOCAUST!!

the tale of the law the tale of evil

the law is the evil of a tale
the making of the law,
is the making of a evil tale
a evil tale is a evil law
a making is a making of a evil tale
a telling is a telling of a tale
a telling is a telling of the law

a telling of the law is a telling of evil
a telling is a telling of a making 
the making of the law is the making of a telling
a law’s telling is a law’s making
a law’s telling is a law’s tale
a power’s tale is a power’s tale of evil
power the mighty tale of evil

a mighty power is a mighty power of evil
a mighty power is a mighty tale of evil
evil is a mighty power of evil
evil is a mighty power of power
to power the law is to power evil
to power the law is to power the mighty tale of evil
a tale of a law is a tale of power


author notes: my writing is called philosophical writing. i only uses middle ages words,words liked gracious,extravanganza,etc… this poem is about a evil’s law is a evil’s tale. i don’t add capitalization’s on my writing.

The Song That You Never Sung Darling

The song that you never sung darling,
Has the best lines that have ever been written,
You thought I never knew, isn't it love?
You forgot that our hearts are attached dear.

The song that you never sung darling,
Has the sweetest tune that I have ever heard,
You never realized that I counted your heartbeats;
You forgot that our hearts are attached dear.

The song that you never sung darling,
Has the most beautiful words I have ever read,
You sometimes never saw my love for you;
You forgot that our hearts are attached dear.

Though, time has passed away;
And you are very far away.
I know it's a sad moment for us;
But love, the song is right for us.

So sing for one last time love;
For our blessed everlasting love.
So sing for those last moments;
Reminiscing the good old moments.

I know it’s sad and depressing but,
It was the best song ever that I have heard.
Sing for one last time love;
Sing for those last moments.

the lonely

Outcrys...
In a room with one hundred wicked, immoral people.
Humans bellowing at each other, saying words that are better left unsaid.
Nobody really gives any affliction to what is happening. These immortal humans are jerks playing with the minds of us who tend to suffer. 
An uproar begins... 
Once the truth is revealed as to what is happening, their words may stop for now but they still come back.
Commonly worse.

The leopard

The leopard ...
shining so brightly
as one of the earth's
truly
most truly ...
utterly beautiful
animal
creatures,

which here we see
held aloft,
stone dead,
after being hunted
by two of
the earth's
bravest ...
oh so brave
human beings,
the mighty ...
oh so mighty,
Trump
sons,

here smiling
& self-satisfied,
holding the body
for a picture,
this once living
breathing
& utterly
beautiful
creature,
a once radiant
but now dead
leopard.
