Premium Member A Necessary Evil

There are those who glorify it, such as Binyon -
"For The Fallen", trotted out each Anzac Day,
Speaks of songs, and youth, and hope.
By contrast, Owen's "Anthem For Doomed Youth"
Likens soldiers to cattle,
Slaughtered...Read More

Wisdom of the Sinner Turned Believer
Some bring their hate to war and some bring their love to war. Family only skin deep. Only place we can guarantee entry together is hell flames. Physical beauty only skin deep. Blood thicker than water only matter to survive...Read More

Premium Member NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN

Lack of sun, we bought a house in the West
The sun liked us very much
Outside the house, grew plants

The garden East of the house is verdant
The North and South are so-so
The West, the dirt is brown

We thought to grow a...Read More

ACCEPTING REALITY
Yes my pride grows,
LOLO said this, I ignored.
I remember I had flaws,
Still do, I get bored
After a while, every time 
It grows, Sweet and bitter as lime.

Yes I'm the tumor,
Now I know this, That voice
Has been talking again, not a...Read More

I Love the Trinity
I love the Trinity
My heart, my mind and my pen
Fixed on the beauty of life and 
Showing the intricacies of men!
What a sinner am I
But now I am a winner through 
My love with the Trinity!
I rise above mediocre

Premium Member There is nothing new under the Sun
All creative thought’s start with our surroundings
From the trees, birds and water even the ground we walk on
Each and everything mankind has created
Has come from the earth itself

The buildings we build and...Read More

I only tell of sunny hours
I only tell of sunny hours...
Break time under cloudy showers;
Work day’s done after dark --
Bright and early I’m a lark.

No complaints, I like my day job.
(Despite getting called Thingamabob.)
Feels good sunbathing all day,
My happy round face on display.

I’m of ancient...Read More

Repo Tale Retold --- Re-edited

A very wise man once said:
There’s nothing new under the sun
If it happened before,
it’s gonna happen again

If a J.I. sold out their best buddy,
they’re gonna sell out your best friend
That’s just how it is,
and that’s how it’s always been
It's the...Read More

AVERAGE ADJUSTMENT
Again, this place, again
Nothing new under the sun
What I'm experiencing anew
Has already been done

Back in '92, I almost gave up
But I pressed into the pain
I faced my past with courage
And used my loss for gain

I've stopped dreaming of magic
And that...Read More

Premium Member You Keep Me Grounded
You keep me grounded
to the soil of my soul
reminding me again
that my words matter
that they help scatter
misconceptions
making connections
pathways to inner places
leaving conjugated traces
of emotional bleeds
and epiphanies

you keep me grounded
when nothing pulls me back
and I float free
tired of poetic mediocrity

THE EXALTED ONE
The flood waters had drawn back
Land made its debut
The past gone and over
With nothing but hope in view

Hard work and labor ahead
Building and creating...what
Grown minds can't forget experience
No matter how one sought

...to begin again

After a time of planting and pruning
Harvest...Read More

Funny how life experiences twist you
You are not yourself any more
Because your mind is twisted
Your personality becomes a shadow of itself
Other times it might make you a better you
Funny how you don’t trust anymore
Because of a betrayal
