Haikus About God: III

Beauty of nature
Why condense it down to God?
Isn’t life enough?

TOMMYROT

TOMMYROT


Flabbergasted – a swimming head

A cold intrusion

A sullen bed.

Cantankerousness

Apt delusion

Inept in death

Dyspeptic relation

Cryptic tree

Unjust incarceration

Liberate me.

The Coming of the Nothing

Collegiates and learned mercenaries
Await their time to lead the willing minions
As lemmings, suicide seems ordinary
Both deaf and blind, devoid of all opinions

Ageless as time itself, she waits
An elixir of evolution
Needing no cure, no answers
No humankind solution

What stops us moving forward
What keeps us all enchained
What keeps the starving hungry
What drives a world insane

A galaxy here, a universe there
Speckled by constellations
But man it seems is content to fight
For the sake of his small nation

Black as an empty starless night
Deep as the hungry ocean
Timeless as death, on its endless flight
In a time of perpetual motion

What stops us moving forward
What keeps us all enchained
What keeps the starving hungry
What drives a world insane 

When will it end, God only knows
As greed alone inspires us
Old Earth, its very soul exposed
To MAN...IT'S LIVING VIRUS!!!

It Smells Like Death

I am just a bird
I couldn't stop them if I wanted
Yes, I saw the bodies huddled for warmth
I didn't know then, though!
Yes, I saw fences and guards
Why do they need so much protection?
Why do I smell flesh, smoke, vomit?
It smells like death.
I hear young children shout for their moms
Then, a gunshot.
Then, nothing.
A little child falls.
Next I taste tears and sweat
Of young men and women alike
Are those what they are?
The crippled bodies strewn about?
I feel the heat of fire,
The cut of barbed wire.
But what do I know?
I am just a bird.

Sarajevo Suicide - 1995

     SARAJEVO SUICIDE -1995
If only I'd the heart to be
the stronger of the two of we,
perchance I'd find you hiding here
and part of who is you and me.

But merciless, love gives no clue
from whence it comes, nor goes into;
the time of day it might appear,
then leave, the very same as you.

I have no mind for fickle thought
nor pain that loving you has brought
if worth my time, I'd hold life dear
though Sarajevo knows it not;

tomorrow's not another day
but in  tonight I cannot stay
so I have need to leave from here
from my own hand and my own way.

Holocaust

The people wish for love
Reaching out for the above
The stars have turned around
All this reaching brings them down

The people pray for more
They lost their love the day before
Now god has closed his eyes
When will they see what they’ve denied?

The people ask for death
Too tired of love to feel their breath
No answers to forgive
The questions raised and why they lived

The dead can see the end
Red shadows climbing in their heads
Pure nothing in control
As they become the blackest holes

Some people rose again
The dead are proof of why they came
To hold onto their own
To remember why they’re not alone

THE END Just gonna happen

It may be now;
it might be later;
All I know is

just gonna happen
just gonna happen

The end

God said

just gonna happen
just gonna happen

Well

gonna take this blue green earth
all this filty turf
it might be now or it might be later;

just gonna happen
just gonna happen

The END

do you wanna be my friend
No you say, you just don't care

just gonna happen, just gonna happen
What kind of world we living in 
When no one cares or cares;
Am I dreaming
I want to be in the Arms of the Father;
but the longer I wait for His arrival;
just gonna happen
He's gonna come
coming down from heaven like He left the earth
I await HIs arrival

Just gonna happen, gonna happen
We I (we ) be ready

The End
just gonna happen
just gonna happen
well you see do you wanna be my friend;
you see
just gonna happen
The End
I can hardly wait for Jesus to part the skies
come down to earth just like He risen;

just gonna happen

It's all over time;
Its over time He is coming back
Jesus is coming
And this ole world shall be destroyed;
This world shall be renewed;
just gonna happen the end, not to late to be my, my friend;

global warming the end
children up rising the end
churches fighting, while still inviting each one is the only right;
blood running down city streets;
elderly and children have no medicines and not enough to eat
now one falling on their knees;
today nobody taking time to pray;
no one saying I Love you, now today;
It's The END
do you wanna be my friend;
just gonna happen
just gonna happen
so I write these lyrics, with paper and pen;
type it on computer/key board, do you still wanna read. . .
just gonna happen my friend
just gonna happen the END
Mighty God, Lord God save me from your wraft;
Mighty God, Wonderful Lord above give me another chance;
Free me from my sinful spiritual chains;
I am embracing my new name
just gonna happen
I've been redeemed, save by the blood of your sacrifice;
No this isn't a dream
Hallelujah and I thank you
Get me out of here before the fall
 reader, "do you wanna still be my friend;
even tho I'm singing bout 
THE END
