Are We Listening
By: Miracle Man

God has given mankind complete freedom of choice,
and walks by our side through valleys and peaks.
But when a Nation is closing its ears to his voice,
does it any longer matter how loudly HE speaks?

Time has endless Patience
There from the start
There too, 'twill be, at the end

Outlasts them all
Watches monuments crumble

"In my battered whelms;
Those profiles which I never win;
My healing has just begun,

they begin...

The winter storms;
often remind me of my birth
my birth when I was born

in the cold months of January...

there was I buried out of my mother's womb;

Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

Premium Member Time Travel
It’s so odd,
how time expands and collapses.
In doing so, 
it scatters the timeline shimmering across the sky.
It left me crumpled,
Surveilling the kaleidoscope that was my life.
Waiting for someone to chance upon my path
and remake the sense of it all.

Yesterday is...Read More

Cloaked Thoughts
By: Miracle Man

Dissembled thoughts never go on trial,
in psyche's dusty corner their life is spent.
Unless fruition comes by our lifestyle,
intent remains always, to circumvent. 

Our thoughts are owned until we opt to share, 
but like small town talk they're...Read More

You should be respectful to women,
and their feelings to.
You don't know how they've suffered,
or what they've been through.

If you still think you're great,
and not alone.
Come back to my stoop,
and give it a troll.

I've read your work,
you shouldn't berate.

Premium Member Not Loved Anymore
I am not loved anymore.
After so many years.
It ended, how, I'm not sure.
Time of sorrow and tears.

I am not loved anymore.
A loss that devastated me.
A pain not felt before.
I saw what I didn't want to see.

I am not loved anymore.

We built that bit by bit by bit by bit.
We tuned out all the news and all the twitter;
We let him grow bold while we grew bitter.
Congressmen and senators let us down.

I the tiny snowflake and you the snow.
You the key, I the gate to Camelot
a Lancelot and Guinevere combo.

Looking For Purple
How does one interpret,
Everyday moments

We all want clarity and forthrightness,
So why the discombobulated torment

Of words that distort the facts,
Untruthful twisted personal attacks

The world is a grand stage,
Where reputations can be made

Or lost,
By words tossed

Without validity,
Or connection to reality

Yet the guilty...Read More

Impending doom, if warning comes before destruction;
When is it the last warning toll?

Watch out for the curb and stop light

Intuition is a skill to master,
For  it helps to get what we are after

Ourselves before their are damages 

Because it can sense out something wrong, 
But also suggest if we are to belong

Realizing Imaginatioin
Words are written,
To stimulate imagination 

Their meaning defined,
By a picture in our mind

Thoughts too, reveal themselves,
As how we see ourselves

Or want to be,
Or wish to believe 

Each day we are thinking,
That it is “us”we are making

Judging the present and the...Read More

Take A Chance
How often do you regret,
Questioning what you suspect

To be an opportunity missed,
Wanting to do over, you wish

Another chance,
To improve your circumstance

Please let me try,
I won’t let this one go by

Without fear,
It’s perfectly clear

With fear,
Success is no where near

So why do...Read More

Our life is defined by choices,
Improved by the ones avoided 

Each day making me,
I want to believe 

But what if I had chosen differently,
I wonder what would have become of me

How much of me would be the same,
Or would I...Read More

Peace of Mind
Where do you find, 
Peace of mind

Is it a physical place you go,
Hidden from everyone you know

Or a place you visit in your head,
Maybe a quiet space instead

To collect your thoughts,
Or strategize the battles to be fought

And maybe one day peal
