Not everyone is on the right side; 
Not often the one who speaks can summon the tongue,

The state of beauty, 
And the presence of nature’s as it...Read More

A new century came to birth.
Been through infancy and  puberty,
Passing times, for what they're worth.

Give infants bottles filled with empty promises
Use binoculars to witness criminal activity

He could suck joy out of a daisy,
turn a Spring day to dust and grit.
His belief was a second-hand fire-sale.

His wife practiced adultery,
gamely trying to perfect the craft.
She would join him at the pulpit,
to appreciative applause.
Her blond hair a halo

For History Buffs
Sir Thomas More
(English martyr, 1478-1535)

Historical events work out odd
when they relate to Almighty God.
Take the case of Sir Thomas More.
He made King Henry awfully sore
by refusing Henry’s order to endorse
his wife Catherine’s unlawful divorce.
The matter quickly escalated

A reminder of sins,
Jerky de-firiye,
Come, come Islam.
Look, it's running out!
Life balance.
A heartbreaker.

It is not our goal,
Never rhyme.
No more levels?
Pros or cons?
Every second.

Wake up, brothers!
What's with this blunder?
They call it a gift.

Why the credit name?
Forget the interest,
Defeat your conscience
And forbidden halal

Under moonlight we spoke of an exchange of new sensations;
In the secrets of loves code, we created a conversation.
Into a series of unknown’s, we allowed ourselves to fall
And all in the hope of finding ourselves in love.
