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.

Seed Of Friendship-A dedication

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 
are down.
N-urtured from cradle to 
entity with a new world 
to face.
O-rganizes oneself for the 
task ahead,passing thru 
hurdles of life unabased 
and unabashed.
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 
his achievements.
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 
Leonora Galinita.

Reflections: Midlife Crisis

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

Stay Positive

P   atiently to face this odds with strong faith,
O   mit the darkest and forget this ill fate.
S   ee the bright side of everything!
I    believe that God plans you for something!
T   ake these challenges positively.

V   ivacious success will surely come to you!

Clutter Free

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!)

Who Am I

Who am I?
Question indeed!

  W-eaned from tender 
age,in noble family of ten.
  H-urt by the demise of 
the tube that brought 
me into this theater of 
struggles and pains.
  O-rdered about by the 
whimps of this 
world,facing the hurdles 
of life daily from 
cradle,never giving up 
  A-fine young man of 28 
I am,who has the 
experience and wisdom 
of the aged.
  M-astering the arts of 
life-learning from lessons 
of life's victims and 
didactic poems 'cos man 
of fame I intend to be for 
I bear the name Bob.

  I-lost my poetic gift at a 
stage but recovered it in 
poetrysoup for invisible 
entities say a 
lesser being I shall be,but 
another encourages me 
to move on,for great is 
one who comes out of 
the shackles of life 
undeterred for this is who 
I am.

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.

A Happy New Year

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!

Law of Attraction

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,

Inspire to be inspired,

Just Do It Now

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.

Just Do It, Now

Jump right in,
Unless you
Things won’t get done.

Overdo or

It may
Tire you too fast.

Never procrastinate
Or you
Won’t achieve your dreams.

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

Success born

5th january2012.

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….

Acrostic for the WORD and the Christian concept of CROSS
C CHRIST CHILD (CONFESS HIM AS LORD) Christ cares so much, He condescended to become a weak human Child. Confess Jesus is LORD, & cross over with God's forgiveness (Romans 10)
R RESURRECTION (Rise after Religion kills you) Religion & Roman Empire crushed Jesus. Religions crucify humans; Jesus died as a human, resurrected bodily, & revealed He is God (next 40 days)
O ONE and ONLY One God in Three Persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit (Almost like 3 functions, ONE GOD) Only way to Heaven is through Jesus. Only He is Perfect & Perfect Sacrifice for sin. Jesus is Wahad & Qurbaan that Ibrahim wanted. Genesis (chapter 22)
S SIN and SUCCESS Sin was paid in full on the Cross. God became human (Jesus) to take our place of death for sins. Jesus succeeds in everything we fail to please God
S SOLUTION and SHEPHERD The Cross answers, How to survive sin & judgment & enjoy God’s LOVE (Justice & Forgiveness cross at the cross). Become like a lamb or sheep, & Jesus will prove He is the Perfect Shepherd who will die defending His sheep.

S is for Strive.
      Strive forward, you can survive.
U is for Understanding.
      Seek understanding; never demanding.
C is for Character and Courtesy.
      Never lose your integrity.
C is for Charisma and Charm.
      Always be cordial and warm.
E is for Enthusiasm and Excitement;
      Even during times of disappointment.
S is for Strategy.  Plan yours, to detail.
      Plan to win and not to fail.
S is for Strength.  Remain strong.
      This is your world!  Take your place!  You belong!

Writing Success

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.

Acrostic with Italian Sonnet rhyme scheme abba, abba, cde, cde

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.

Plugging all loopholes debarring progress.
Launching formidable,affordable and achievable programmes for the 
improvement of the society.
Unfolding new ideas,technology and innovations for advancement.
Not leaving out any essential information,ideas and matters to move forward.
Gunning for the best in all things.
Ever ready to listen and cooperate with subordinates,equals and superiors.
Tender and loving to all with noexception.
On the will of progres always to achieve and succeed
Sensitive to changing events and circumstances in his environment.
Urgently attending to all issues with equal spate and pace.
Checking all details and facts available to him painstakingly.
Cautious in taking actions and making pronoucements.
Exemplary posture of purity and worthy followership.
Shinning example and pride to the society.
Succeeding through hardwork,perseverance and strongwill.

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!)

Upwardly Mobile

   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.
