Mental stretching, the required sacrifice
Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
To all exercises, these four are the basics
Hell on paper but sweet in its understanding
Equations and formula, serving as raw products
Mastering the existence of numbers to gain its wisdom
Arithmetics also in a graphical representation
Then its technicalities in shapes and planes
Into life's activities, these applications silently integrate
Calculation of numbers and expressions
Sum up all problems via solutions to an answer.

School Days!

School Days!
     By the Poets Listed After the Poem

   Summer HOT fun filled days with plays and toys  
   Cease! And school begins for girls and for boys. 
   Holidays in the winter and the spring, 
   Outdoors sports: football, baseball and swim team.
   Old friends and new friends are joined together. 
   Laughter and learning gifts of forever-  

  Ding. Dong. Ding. Go inside.  It’s time to spell.
  Arithmetic. Reading. Writing.  DO TELL!  
  Youngsters when asked what they like to do best.
  Simply answer, of course, “We love recess!”

A is for apathy, “You all know you are!”

B is for itching, “Why can’t I have a car?”
U is for the umbilical cord. You never cut from Ma.
N is for neutral, “Why should you take a stand?”

D is for dependent, “Hey, one always needs a hand!”
A is for angry, “Well, why the hell shouldn’t I be?”
N is for nostalgia, ‘cause in the past we’re free.
C is for the ocks ;) who run the whole damn show!.
E is for euthanasia, “When your old just GO!”

And all that spells abundance, in case you could not tell?
Or went to school in Texas and never learned to spell.

If you don't eat, you're anorexic if you do eat, you're a fat ass.
If you don't wear makeup, you're ugly. If you wear makeup, you're a fake.
If you're loud, you're annoying; if you're quiet, you're weird.
If you're good in school, you're smart; if you say something wrong, you're stupid.
If you take pictures, you're an attention-whore; if you don't stalk your friends you're not cool.
If you wear sweats, you're underdressed; if you wear a dress, you're overdressed.
If you don't have boobs, no guys like you; if you have boobs, they're fake.
If you don't have a boyfriend, you're a loser; if you have one, he's cheating on you.
You tell us to be who we are but then you go and judge us about it. So now, do you see how hard it is for us to just be ourselves?

seekh jaunge

ku aasuo ki dhara rukti nahi...... shikayto ki ladi kabhi tutte nahi ...
jis chubare pe diya jalana me bhulu usi chubare pe ku raat dhalti nahi....

bikhre hue tukdo ko sambhalti hu...
tute hue sheshoko jodti hu jo tukda agr kahin chut jaye....
usi tukde se chot ku khati hu...

tinke si galti karti hu or chatt puri gir jati hai...

ya to galtiya khuda ko pasand nahi meri ...
ya vo muge bda insaan banana chahta hai......

chinti bhi tokar deke girati hai muge shayad vo muge sambhal kr chalna sikha na chahta hai......
 abhi girne ka samay hai mera chot kha k bhi khadi ho jaunge ...
abi adikar hai mera ki galtiyan kr sakti hu mai...

phr chahe sambhlu ya giru....
mai savanr hi jaunge ...
es smay k baad na girana e khuda ......

ki paki hui mitti ka judna na ho paega.

Love came down at Christmas

L Long ago travelled Kings
O Opened their minds to prophecies
V Visiting from afar they brought gifts of Gold, Fracincense and Myrrh
E Eastern Star guiding them lighting the way

C Company of Heavenly Host
A Allelujah! Angels appeared to Shepherds, telling Savior born
M Manger for bed wrapped in cloths in Town of David
E Evangelically proclaimed Christ the Lord

D December 25th designated day
O On which we recollect
W Why/way Christ entered our world
N Nativity only part of His story

A A new testament
T Tells of new covenant between God and His people

C Christ's coming to Earth
H Hailed as new born King, Holy
R Risen Lord, righteous redeemer, 
I Intercedes for us as
S Spiritual Saviour to save sinners souls
T Time for Truth, Trust, Trinity
M Man's belief in God of Love,  
A As Father Son and Holy Spirit
S Shall be saved

Education, this, thy craving
Dare be: To acquire 
Universal knowledge through 
Continuous learning
And with a spirit yearning
To Unveil remote depths . For 
In the depth of knowledge great treasures dwell
Or whence comes insight. If
Not wisdom's well?

The Message

I'm not the greatest of all-times, but when I'm done, I'll be an all time great in this lifetime of mine Like the late great who came before my time I will breed a new lifeline, that will breathe life like march of dimes My story lines, will bring truth life; like troops who fight Overseas, for rights of those who believe that death is life Now that ain't right! As the rich is getting richer, eating fillet me-non, while we barely feeding our appetite Night after night Survival has waged a war that gave us no choice but to battle and fight Although, we'll be all right They say we a dying breed, but that ain't right Instead we're the light to a lying greed That will enlighten life to a brand new seed A man of God indeed Freed from the Son that bleeds Like the summer breeze He's the sum that equals the amount of air I breathe The air that please A satisfaction like the birds and the bees My word's words are the keys That will fornicate with the mind and give birth to a seed A seed of social change, that'll change our social economy So shall our comradery That will bring comfort to a struggling society A synonym...similar to a civilization seeking for unity Unifying the physics of theory That seeks to explain the synopsis of a dying philosophy Similar to the Cosby X-cept my scrip-tic will speak more about our reality Like life's calamity And everything else in life that's destroying us systematically However, I've discovered a system That can mathematically destroy ignorancy And turn our state of mind intellectually I elect that He (God) selects me to be And be that man who may lead this community So that they (My Peoples) may commute with me En-route to a destination, destine towards our destiny Like we were destine to be We were meant to be "Great" like the late great that came before we. Because we are... The reflection where perfection gave birth to the definition of greatness Where great means Competent, Skilled, Well Informed, and Tremendous Our potentials are endless And only we not even the enemy can put an end to this So it's time we put a stop to this The biggest enemy of self And that's envy and jelousness Cause after this is Heaven or Hell and that's all there is A promised made sealed with a kiss Knowing this Is the next best thing since "In the beginning" In the first chapter of the first verse in Genesis!

Days Of The Pioneer

Divine God
All encompassing
Yesterday's dreams and tomorrows futures
Songs from the traditional church hymnary

Omnipotent divine God
Free from sin and adversity

Teacher and lord
Houses humble and forgiving
Each pioneer brave and bold

Pies and cakes, bread and rolls 
Islands of freedom and simplicity
Outreach to the community
New clothes home spun and knit for each man and woman and children
Excellent ways of living 
Each person talented and musical
Real dimensions of a previous history, simply blessed

In darkness, the mind comes short
Gullible to any item offered, and
Not an excuse for self underdevelopment
Obnoxious in the gathering of knowledge
Rationality greatly fractured and invalid
And then lost in the puzzle of understanding
Never near a sound judgment, because it
Cannot sieve random information which
Ends with a sense of powerlessness

Alchemy (An Acrostic)

Ancient science launches research towards new technology
Learning new disciplines to increase the power of their patron
Creating new magics; generating spendable gold from lead
Hinting at greater knowledge hidden in the realms of men
Evolving sciences increase the expertise of kingdom soldiers
Machines, potions and tactics to defeat enemies of the king
Yesterday's mysteries leading the world toward today's reality

R eading the minds of those who
S uccumb, breathing realms of perplexity
N egative, positive their difference and sum
I s it only I in contemplation? 
S quare-rooted mysteries and more to come 
R eady to confront word-“problems”
E ager, I sometimes feel so dumb
E ndless solving of no cessation, yet with you
N othing but a piece of Pi….yum!

Friendly Memories

Friend that listens and cares
Real  communication and conversation
I know there are many good memories
Eternally there guiding and keeping us safe
New liasons that enhance our lives
Divine guidance from God
Liking that person because there are very special
Yesterday the memories linger on

Mention the excellence
Everyday friends guide us and nurture us
My wish to always have friends
Occaisionally visiting and blessing us
Reality of kindness and love
I appreciate friendship
Evergreen and new and refreshing
Sophisticated all the while humble

Usually the balance between acquisition and usage
Names are knowledgeable but personality needs more
Designs the best picture be it real or abstract
Edits and processes before swallowing
Revelation, coming out of observations and meditations, then
So much strength in reasoning and objectivity
The main pillars, holding the museum of wisdom; stimulates
Application of knowledge to create more knowledge. It’s
Not expensive, if the state of knowing is acquired
Discoveries are established from its brochure’s instructions
Inventions are realities of its filial generation
Not limited to mere assimilation but also to
Give out much more output from any little input

The Constitution

In any country
From century to century
Living together of people
Strong and feeble
Has been of paramount importance.

Countries have different ways of association
Some live in a federation
Others in a confederation.

In each case,
The system of living together 
Is guided by a document
Called a constitution
It is drawn by a group of selected people.

After the selected people have agreed
On a type of constitution
It is then presented 
To the people of the nation
In a referendum.

In some nations,
The people signify their intentions
Through elected members
Who represents them in parliament.

Once the document  is approved by the people,
Delegated by the people,
It becomes a constitution.

...A constitution is a document
That governs the way of life
And behavior of people
Of a nation.

A constitution can be suspended
In times of emergency,
The government of the day
Shall rule by degree
And not by acts of parliament.

All loyal citizens of a nation
Respect their constitutions
As they respect their race.

Sacrifices fundamental activities for education.
Clouds enclosed in mentality.
Home of the learned.
Occupation of those who can't do.
Opposition of modern history.
Life of the ludicrous.

Explosive and intimidating, only the well to do can bargain
Xenon’s imitator-rare in the mixture of its like
Peacocks so classy in comparison to Turkeys
Evaluation of worth raises the wings of pride, but
New necessarily does not translate to costly
Selects its attraction but never to be selected
Invites without a microphone, advert, plea or agency
Very strict in maintaining an already established level, which is
Enclosed in packages made of precious rares.

Knitted wonderfully with power
No need for sorcery or magic to
Officially manifest from its acquisition
Wisdom always stands at its back door
Level of the mind upgrades with more addition,
Ensuring the defeat of superstitious and mythical convictions
Discernment becomes easy and free
Growth and development inevitably results.
Endless is the bank which is its store
