there is no one before Him or after Him

Perhaps - Just Perhaps
Perhaps love is the answer
    but maybe not 
Perhaps utopia is coming

Perhaps we will be "saved"

Premium Member Let us begin instructing the ignorant
To speak a truthful opinion correctly dressed
attacked by false faces clearly visible hate
trying to shut down facts crying victim's
Judgemental liars falsely claiming right's

Firstly you support human sacrifice

These countries that preach about hating terrorism
supports such acts financially overturning basic rights
Strong statements without knowledge carry little value
look to the bright side where trust is lacking
Intelligence has next to no faith if used backwards
manipulating talks takes these shady turns...Read More

Premium Member Stuck In an Elevator
I am stuck in an elevator with Cher, Tina Turner, Bette Midler,
Pink, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga when
Liza Minnelli drops in from a tiny opening in the roof.
We all scream “LIZA!” and then we whip out our instruments.

Slum
Slum

Where hard looks and thin soup oppose,
the spider, cockroach, rat, and mouse dispute
in patient litigation or in border raids
our title to this world. 

There is no mystery, it boils down to food.
Our ruined lunches providing theirs
as Roman baths provided stones

When a Pen Talks
If my pen would talk, it'd say what I thought,
what do I think would come straight from the ink.
If it was blue, red, or black the words wouldn't change,
the ink states the facts.
The facts are words, thoughts and rhyme,
reading them...Read More

I disallow
There are times when it’s just them and I
I read them a book and then they try
We dance in the kitchen and sing really loud
I’m not good with structure, but fun is allowed

I let them be little, some say they’re...Read More

Theater of Utter Charm - Part 28
part 28

at least we know what to avoid in a civilization
hypnotism for one
and angst which merely resembles authenticity
by attempting to dissect the inconsequential
which boils down to the matter of
detecting the inconsequential in the first place
what is your species

The Good Ole' Days
What ever happened to the good ole' days?
  Only memories left of those caring ways
When people said just what they meant 
  And a handshake was good enough for consent
When words were simply taken to heart
  And...Read More

No Right Time
There is nothing like "the right time"
Stop sitting and waiting for it
Of course everything is going to be fine
But it won't be until you start working towards it
I have seen many a talent wasted
Many treasures untapped
Many people frustrated
Many visions warped
It's...Read More

People change
  You find out that something has happened a few years back.
  Something that affects a family member.
  You roll it off to protect your family.
  But it plays over in your head. 
  You're...Read More

Never expected to find you
So much I wanted to tell you
Actually boils down to a warm thank you
Your glowing smile I can still picture
Still remember your laughter
You seemed much older and wiser
In your eyes that deep piercing look
Revealed the wisdom...Read More

The sin that so easily besets me

That I now understand his whims
That I can say “get behind me, that story is old”

My Poetry
I've jotted the oblique
Scribbled the sublime
Communed with Mother Nature
While holding hands with Father Time

Dipped my toes in the poetic pool
Swam in the extreme 
Question is does this make me out a fool
Or genius with a dream

I've taken my pen to...Read More

The Sound of Breathing
Ba bum…ba bum…ba bum
That sound, metronomic beating
Ba bum…ba bum…ba bum
Is that the sound of my breath, my breath leaving my lungs…
Ba bum…ba bum…ba bum
Or the sound of my voice bouncing off my echoing mind
Ba bum…ba bum…ba bum
Do I even have...Read More

How did I reawaken to a villan

seen by Sarah
experienced in a early morning escapade
How did I wake up a villan
Sarah, why must I convince myself...Read More

Assigned to spend time with a few elderly folks
Spotted an old gentleman staring out into space
Weathered beaten hands and a sun etched face

Premium Member 'Float'

The core of you 
Does not float like you think it does
It is anchored in what you believe 
You sometimes don’t fathom all of you  
Because you reject the reflection 
What your mind is telling you 
You refuse to...Read More

The glass house
They talk, chat shit, they whisper
The things about my life
They really do not know my woes
My troubles and my strife

It boils down to assumption
About things they think they know
Of how I came to be this way
Distrusting, empty, hollow

Of course I...Read More
