Soothing ordinal number, satisfying one’s needs,
End of one’s endeavor, a completion of a week;
Valuable quantity on spiritual event like Jesus’ words on the cross,
Even church sacraments and God’s rest after His creation and great work.
Number wrapping the amazing wonders of the world,
The lucky symbol of many international businesses,
Horizontally written going down to fulfillment and success.

L-iving in a world of vast
souls formed from
another voided world,
E-ntering thru portals
from their world to earth.
O-ozing spetacular smell
and wail when the chips
N-urtured from cradle to
entity with a new world
O-rganizes oneself for the
task ahead,passing thru
hurdles of life unabased
R-eaps the fruit of labor
with joy or heavy heart.
A-ge sets in,mission
accomplished or not will
dawn on the entity.
I-n retrospect,he thinks
about his childhood and
how life was to him.
L-iving in confidence or
shame,he bows his head
in victory or defeat.
O-nly the taste of time
will tell the durability of
V-oid of preference the
aim result bears the
foundation for his lineage.
E-njoyment or lack lies
with the works of the
man,for there is no food
for the slothful.
Y-oung ones,a stitch in
time saves nine,make
haste while the sun
O-iling your lamb always
like the ten virgins is the
key to success.
U-rging you to shun peer
pressure and focus on
the course marked out
for you by fate,so a
fulfilled life you shall live.
An acrostic for you

P aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace

Chaotic disarray no doubt,
Lost things never found,
Understanding things must change,
Time is wasted searching 'round.
Take control and organize,
Everything must have its place.
Remove the unessential junk,
Freeing up much needed space.
Regroup, remove, refine, refresh,
Eventually you'll have success,
Evicting all your cluttered mess.
(Now if I'd only follow my own instructions!)

New Year’s Day dawns bright and clear.
Expectant of an unused year,
We vow to break old habits.
Young or old, we all agree
Everything shall better be.
And as the new year begins,
Ruefully we count our sins,
Seeming to multiply like rabbits.
Down with the old, up with the new.
As Twenty-Thirteen on the old Earth spins,
Year's best I wish for all of you!

Soar as high as your wings can carry you
Up, up and away to the zenith of the highest
Mountain to touch a distant dream, to touch the
Moon, or perhaps stars and constellations
In the night sky. Push your boulder of dreams up
The summit, achieving what Sisyphus could not.

Sometimes we look to closest friends,
Expressly those who think we're ace:
Let them confirm our worth but still
Forget, inside us lies the proof.
Actualization calls for a
Command of strength and keen logic
To shape ourselves, at last, to get
Unknown rewards on our plateau.
And with revealed goals, we take a
Lone journey through heart and soul
In our quest...a long safari,
Zestfully seeking life's pizzazz,
And a fruitful new arena
That hones our talents as our gift.
Inner joy promotes stimuli
Of further searches, that lead to
New trails of self-completion.

Jump right in,
Things won’t get done.
Tire you too fast.
Won’t achieve your dreams.
Copyright © M. L. Kiser | Year Posted 2014
Jump right in with or without the suit;
Unless you’re kicked there by someone’s boot.
Sitting around is just stagnation,
Thus there’ll be no celebration.
Deliver something into this realm;
One or two things won’t overwhelm.
In life, we must all make contributions;
Try a bit of creative infusion.
Never endeavor to procrastinate
Or you may meet, with the worst of fates.
Wonders then, they will abound; everyone will want you around.

"Eric's Second Rule of Wisdom"

Exercise reason in choosing Love, be only doubtful during intense erotica....

Before you read the poem please put together the first alphabet of each line to understand the theme…success personified (acrostic style with rhyme)
Seeds sown at the child’s birth,
Understand that to be born in sin, there is no dearth.
Cease to reason why the mother her name is always betrayal,
Come on we all know her best girl friends are struggle, heartache, disappointment and denial.
Ease into the child ears soft strain of lullabies of hardship,sorrow,grief and of people on trial.
Sure we are that the father his name is sufferings, his buddies are tragedy and despair,
Sweet child of the unholy union can be the one to get the electric chair,
But is known as SUCCESS if given tender loving care,
Oh its roots are always never too rich, that of multimillionaire.
Rise from the crowd below and climb the steps of glory,
Now on is the only aim for him so that in his memoir he can write a fine story….

This is your world! Take your place! You belong!

Sweet sounds of every day enriching the life
Empty dark lucky enough into your lights
Life looks in the mirror at its crimson strife
Feeling within how the stars getting bright
As I walk in the garden looking for your window
Curious to collect the crystals from your braid
Towards a home in pomegranate that I know
Unable if I am to make it, I’ll lose the cool shade
An amazing struggle between two colored sparks
Lovely corridors into the world of your red roses
In the lightning and laughter that defy the dark
Zeal absolute for the shaft of light that discloses
An arrival at self designed patterns of joy in love
The words aplenty to speak in a voice of poetry
Intensely waiting inside the golden trophy cup
Of tomorrow, your pleasant trellises look at me
Nice construction and deconstruction, this life

Law of attraction, one's mastered their own universe mentally,
Attract positive thought process to manifest,
Worry a magnet for negatively
Optimism produce healthy life, health, and wealth,
Faith, forgiveness, and freedom, law of attraction stimulate,
Ageless, abundance, achievement, ambition, and a well-being, brought on with clear thinking,
Trust the process and self,
Thankfulness bring more blessings,
Achieve goals with faith,
Command every desire into existence,
Tap into intuition; mediation,
Inspire to be inspired,
Open-mind brings success,
Nurture self; ours

Sparkle and shine, sparkle and soar;
Poise paves sure way, poise lives pure grace;
Intent fits fine, intent holds oar;
Reclaim your say, reclaim your space;
Ideas and lines, ideas and more;
Truth heals your play, truth minds your race;
Urge now defines, urge now restores;
Align your day, align your core;
Love what feels fine, love what soul pours.
See beyond wealth, see beyond things;
Use touch to heal, use stuff to share;
Choice starts clear health, choice funds all flings;
Charm offers feel, charm pleasures fare;
Express your thought, express your good;
Sense lovely thrills, sense lively wares;
Success frames plot, success primes mood.
Start as you are, start with big heart;
Trust what you feel, trust what you know;
Align your stars, align your art;
Reach out to fill, reach out to show;
Touch takes you far, touch soothes each part;
Set out to heal, set out to grow.
Seek tact that binds, seek fields that pace;
Peace firms sure stay, peace lives clear voice;
Heed soul and mind, heed heart and grace;
Endow each day, endow each choice;
Reach with love kind, reach with cheer's face;
Employ wise play, employ warm poise.

When one decides which thoughts he shall portray,
Remembering wherein his dreams abide,
Imagination through each phrase untied.
Those dancing thoughts upon a page find way.
Idle words lay sleeping one more day.
Not sound nor phrase decides its wordy stride.
Go, now thinkers on your sweet dreams glide.
Successful writing, in one’s thoughts finds play.
Unleashed are fantasies through word and rhyme.
Caressed, each thought in imagery and word.
Collisions of life’s peace and pain, now poetry.
Express thy loves and sorrows throughout time.
Sing sweet the songs where reason seems absurd.
See sunshine smile its face, my friend, on thee.

Jubilance is key to living a good and happy life! Live life to the fullest with me! Man, I can relate to you! We all go through our ups and downs! I wish you good luck and fortune in this life.
Umm…I’m speechless – you make me smile all the way! You make my day, buddy! Can you help me stay on track? I'm thankful that you got my back and got rid of the debt stack!
And…I’d like to ask you – Can you sprinkle your salt and pepper upon my distasteful flavor? In other words, can you inspire me to run the extra mile? Can you set my passion aflame and help me to stay strong till the end? You are the light on the surface of the chaotic ocean…
Never stop believing and trying with all of your might – run and take flight until you reach the finish line! We will both thrive if we just strive…I can see you’re running fast and hard just by the sweat of your brow! Wow, you amaze me by your talents…WOW!
(Hope you liked my somewhat weird poem!)

A-s the sun starts to shine,
N-ight shadows disappear;
A-fter the dark is gone,
B-irthday girl knows no fear.
E-vening silence has turned into sound of morning delight;
L-onely dusk has changed into dawn burning bright.
M-onth of January each year
A-s the twenty-ninth daybreak begins;
N-ew light from the sky
A-dds clarity to my visual sense.
L-et the Lord defend you from the minions of darkness;
O-utsmart the enemies of faith and you shall gain sweet success.

Sincerity in true beliefs
Endeavours to pursue.
Look deep into your mortal soul
For therein lies the proof.
A change of face, now one with great charisma.
Creates a challenge to all thoughts, by being more eclectic.
Then cast away all doubts, and put this alter ego to the test
Unloose the past and say farewell, adieu.
After all this fine extravaganza
living life the way we all should lead, nobodies fool.
Improving know-how, learning lessons from the literati
Zooming upwards, charming with a suave pizzazz.
And to carry your convictions, with a certain kind of aura
Thinking clearly,to do what is considered best.
If however, much mistaken, don't seek out an alibi
Overcome those smallest errors, without much more ado.
Never doubt these qualities your future needs, to don a cap and gown.
