The truth of Pregnancy
(True Fact.non fiction)

The truth of pregnancy is not all glamour.
For some it's a beautiful experience.
For me it was hell than beautiful once after he was held.
Unexpected pregnancy from a fake lover.
Who would expect carrying a pregnancy would be so heavy.

A cry of the depressed
Can you hear me?
Do I have a voice?
Can you see me?
Everyone has a choice.
Is anyone there?
Above or below?
Do you really care?
Or do you go with the flow?
I spend my mornings weeping.
I spend my nights silently crying.
With the secrets I am...Read More

Her eyes widened,
Not once did I stop to notice that this was the first time
These words came from my mouth.
Through action yes but never once did I stop to pay attention that I've never said it before.

Premium Member Why you, why now, why here, why me
I am a man who walks through time
I see before it started and the end of the line
I can see your birth and be a witness to your death
Why am I sat here?
Perhaps I just need a rest?

You drive a Benz with chrome plated wheels,
then from the government you continue to steal,
I wonder if you’ll ever really know how it feels,
to be so hungry and not get approved for food assistance-

But Seriously
But seriously, you want me to do what?
These words erupted out of a startled mouth
As with as much dignitary I could muster
I looked at him as though he was uncouth

Out of Focus
The golden micro packs of light in air
A sunken belly of a poor woman
A few people rising still more upstairs 
A guy is lashing a dog, inhuman

A little boy has just been run over
The poor mother sobs her heart out...Read More

Premium Member Information Age Injustice
This hi-tech table set unfolds unfair
For words inscribed to turn romances ripe,
Since just by finger-click can loves compare

The same as Congress holds its truths we scroll;
And though indignance now is...Read More

But Seriously
Why does love dissipate and circle into greed?
An ugly foundation that has planted its seed.
Where all good deeds go unseen.
Emotions we hate to feel start to seep in.
But Seriously......
Why do we shut out what we so often need?
Leaving us stranded,...Read More

Jackboots shiny black  
Uniforms black they come
Cold dark devilish nights
With black hearts they come

Teach the world to laugh
Two banana skins
Nature's organic footwear
Slick pair of slippers

Slapstick never fails
Banana peel accidents
Laughter unites us

Although the scent of  laughter flows
Into  my wind-swept breath ,

As   violin notes serenade temptation’s play
To crawl upon my luscious  flesh    igniting

Premium Member When I Was Young
When I was young, I was so very sweet.
I never tattle-taled or smarted off.
I shared with others when I got a treat,
and at my sisters I would never scoff.

the many chores she...Read More

into a dream,
I am in a forest
of trees so beautiful
and I see myself a tree,
my roots deep in the earth
my branches raised to the sun.
I am strength and I am courage.
A river flows past me like a stream
of glass. ...Read More

Real men

Seriously do real men need to groom?

But can we deny
     that life exists beyond our earthly sky?
          A speck we are inside our Galaxy
and barely seen within the cosmic sea.
