I just want
you
to stand as ugly as you are...

mysterious and crude, clear is the motive

My first five liner
The 
writing 
motive 
was 
strong
Obey 
it 
I 
must.
To 
the 
picture 
I 
head
But 
help 
less 
it 
was. 
Then 
I 
learnt
Inspiration 
cometh 
not 
from 
it!...

Jibber Jabber
Jibber jabber rambling and gambling of words,

thoughtful sounds of meaningless intent,

unanswered calls for the insightful motive,

simple as such, silly as much,

jotting the illogical flow of blurbs....

Now Is The Time
Now is the time 
To show everyone that you can achieve 
Remove all self-doubt 
Be the one to believe 
Take those steps forward
Promote the positive 
You have it all in you
Rising up should be the fierce motive...

R Rather dwell on verses of Scripture, sonnet or verse
D Deliberating on sounds cast awind, torture me alive...

[...] corações bondosos

pensamentos amáveis

palavras amáveis são as flores
ações amáveis são os frutos.

Cradled
to be a man;
with knowledge of wisdom.
True convictions lasting daily
never questioning why or answering
with an unintended motive.
Sacrificial and brave
which was born and
Cradled

Happy feels easy
Sorrow heaps plenty


Sadness feels heavy
Placid prompts cheery


Motive moves fancy
Discrete sows amply 


Divine mind inspires
Human kind conspires

be my engineer
heat me to
boiling

open my mouth
stoke my fire
shoveling

words in
but save

coal that
was

heated
but now
has cooled

and as is time
for all time
this will be

ours as coal 
becomes a
diamond...

Difficult to proceed
Difficult to proceed.
Without motive we can't stand to lead.

Silence surrounds us and
were just not as strong as we 
once were.

Let me tell you the plan before
your feet reach the floor.
While your waiting,
here's another chore 
your built for. ...

Oh! vagrant life, your motive unknown,
for what do you acknowledge me? 
and why am i a pawn?
why fix un-broken entity's?
why lead to deep desire?
and overpowering uncertainty
through all vanity,  yet to be..' 
immolated in eternity's fire.."...
