Admiring Those Who Know How To Cut And Leave

i admire those
who know how
to cut and leave

what courage
have they when
they decide to

become birds
and fly away
to shores unknown?

to cut the umbilical
cord and be the
persons that they
want to be away
from their mothers?

Only A Few May Know How To Turn On The Lights

How can someone be responsible,
For creating new concepts...
And beginning fresh trends.
Without one word mentioned,
Giving credit to them.

How could entire industries exist.
Or unities of communities thrive successfully...
With good intentions.
If people who initiate these foundations,
Aren't given some attention!

'You know what is said about stolen ideas? '

~No.
No I don't.~

'Anyone can steal an idea.
But a valued thought process...
Is obvious in its progress.

Anyone can build a building.
But only a few may know how to turn on the lights!
And keep them on.'

Only Those Who Know Can Relate

Confinement plus isolation,
Equals awareness!
With an insight,
Unlike anything an open door...
And freedom to explore will allow!
Sometimes this experience comes enforced.
And then there are times,
When one finds life to be such a blessing!
Especially when one believes it is near the end.
Only those who know...
Can relate.
The others are still contemplating,
How to live it.
And by which prescribed medication...
Produces the best benefit!

Emily Dickinson

I lived on dread; to those who know

I lived on dread; to those who know
The stimulus there is
In danger, other impetus
Is numb and vital-less.

As't were a spur upon the soul,
A fear will urge it where
To go without the spectre's aid
Were challenging despair.

As Genuine As Those Who Know It

Whether it becomes displayed,
Or laid in the shadows to dust...
Quality is eventually discovered.
And known to show what it is.
Quality dusted never ages to rust.
No matter what attempts are made,
By those unappreciative of its value.
A quality that remains to be quality,
Is as genuine as those who know it!
Regardless of what rating it gets.
Quality can not be rated against,
That which it has no peers.

Poem about Poetry - I am Poetry (II)

i am poetry
my pride is
i am from the
purest sanctum
of one's heart

my joy is
i am simple
as the first words
of a child

everyone
with a mind
and heart
can have me
a child to laugh
cry over

i am no match
in dollars and cents
for music and songs
paintings or fanciful buildings
but rub me out of the world
the rest would crumble

no more sweet words
that swing with the cradle
no more stirring whispers
between the hugs of new lovers

no more lyrical smoothies
for the troubled hearts
no more the wheezing
of pet dog as it nudges you
on the thigh for a pat and bone

no more pet cats and kittens
that invariably turn your
dinner into a meowing ball
i like the way i am
- adopted child
in the arts
read and given
prominence only
by those who
know how

and that's is exactly
the reason why i thrive
- i live only for those
who know how
exactly to love me

What Of Those Who Want To Give...

WHAT OF THOSE WHO WANT TO GIVE…


Those who give to others are blessed-
But what of those who try to give and cannot?
What of those who will to give and fail?
What of those who pray to give and are not answered?
What of those who long to give,
And hear only ‘No, no, no, Not’?

What of those who want to give
And cannot?

For Those Who Say It Is Never Too Late, It Is!

For those who say it is never too late,
It is!

The only thing those who choose to procrastinate do,
Is use more time to make excuses.
And this they do from the experience of it!
Doing so to abuse someone's time.

For those who say it is never too late,
It is!

With thoughtlessness attached.
And at the expense of getting attention.
Since their comprehension is only used to waste.
In celebration of their own hesitation.

For those who say it is never too late,
It is!

With an aspiration to agitate those exasperated,
To heights of exacerbation unnecessarily created.
And pleasing no one but those who choose to bait,
Disrespect and neglect achieved.

For those who say it is never too late,
It is!

Speaks!

clouds speak...
with ancient cathedral voices,
but only to those who listen!

babies speak...
with first cry at light,
only mothers' ears hear!

bombs speak...
but never of freedom,
oppression's lies, loud and brash!

hunger speaks...
distinct human faces,
lost to the indifferent roar!

lonliness speaks...
lost in self losing color,
black and white emptiness!

God speaks...
but no one listens;
lost in those clouds,

slowly drifting away!

Why Should I Respect Those

Why should I respect those who do not respect me
Who look down upon me for my poverty
You should only respect those who show respect for you
At least to my own self I'll always be true.

Why should I respect those who bomb, maim and kill
Who by the power of force on smaller Nations impose their will
If you are strong be merciful to them does not apply
Those not with us are against us that is their war cry.

Why should I respect those who for their own greed
Abuse Mother Nature who supplies our every need
What we do to Nature to our own selves we do
The karma we'll receive is the karma we are due.

Why should I respect those who trample the weak
And muzzle those who for themselves who cannot speak
I only respect those who treat others fair
And who love Nature's creatures and for Nature care.

Heaven

Heaven is a place for dead people,
But only for those who did something good in their lives.
Good people are all around us,
Making us happy and caring for us.

They make us happy,
They cheer us up,
They make us fell better.

If you look carefully, you can see them all around.
Heaven are not the things around us,
Heaven is what is around us.

Individuals, too, who cultivate a variety of skills seem brighter, more energetic and more adaptable than those who know how to do one thing only.

We have to improve life, not just for those who have the most skills and those who know how to manipulate the system. But also for and with those who often have so much to give but never get the opportunity.

A Man with a Guitar

Men talk on the public square,
Pigeons eat on the sidewalk and fly,
Women flirt and feed the pigeons.

Men, envious of pigeons,
Desire more attention from the women
But women only notice birds who know how to sing.

There comes a nightingale that starts singing
And attention moves from pigeons to nightingales;
There comes a man with a guitar, and he starts playing

And singing like a nightingale.
A woman allured by these new sounds
Forgets the pigeons and nightingales;

She shyly starts to sing
And turns to a man with a guitar.

Farce

It's not an identity
That displays the affinity.
It's the question of whose black,
That they keep themselves attacked!
Not from the outside but from the inside,
They seem closed as if afraid,
Stunted in a mindset dim...
That sheds no light to their shade.
And in this disposition...
There is a competition,
To show themselves aware...
Others might stop and stare!
But there are those who know who they are,
And shrug off being color barred!
Living to be inside color free.
Because the mind is not restricted,
By this farce...
Or predetermined destiny!

Time Heals Nothing

The past is a gone memory, the present is bleak, so far and so close, with no power to seek for the light that has eluded grasp, these moments are the moments where the question of man arises and we must choose between what is right and what we desire, for the phrase time heals all wounds is a misleading term that offers nothing but confusion to those who know not what it means, memory is our key, yet not every memory is meant to be unlocked, at times it is better to let go then to pursue a hopeles answer, and in this we find that we have wasted our lives.

Song Of Revolution

Let those who know how to pray, pray
And those who can’t, wish
For we are getting to a stage
Where history will be re written
And all hell let loose.

Though no one ever pray for this
But wishful thinking is never enough.
How could the oppressor of people
Think the people will forever believe
Their propaganda of peace with poverty.

Let it be sang in the nooks and crannies
Of the geographical entity called Nigeria
That the poor will no longer have none it
That never are we going to be deceived again
By their crap of unity and suffering.

There cant be no peace without justice
Justice, my people, that will reach everywhere
Those that put our money away in unlit safe
Shall rot away in unlit prison cells
For offense and punishment must be equal.

So let those who know how to pray, pray
And those who cant, wish
For we cannot because of peace
Remains forever in abject poverty.
..
