I said, 'See you in the hospital my dear

I said, 'See you in the hospital my dear',
as I watched your mum disappear.
To Dellwood in an ambulance she sped,
'Will it be a girl or a boy', I said.

The telephone rang, 'It's a girl'.
To the hospital I went in a whirl.
Our beautiful Max lay besides her mum.
Little did I know what was to come.

Before your birth I called you Qasimodo.
A great mistake for I wasn't to know.
That eight years later you'd find out
what the name 'Qasi' was all about.

So I promised that I'd pay you 10p
every time that I called you 'little Qasi.'
But it was so difficult for me to quit
and cost a fortune to break the habit

Take Me To The Hospital

The weight put on my back
Is causing my spine to crack,
The tears I bleed everynight
Is not a pretty sight.
The school to where I go
Is a place where people know
The energy used to get up everyday
Is making me tired in every single way.

The bruises and scars make me lonely,
I need someone to hold me.
The beatings and numb feeling is a scary ride,
I need somebody by my side.
The thoughts and shocks make me space,
I need someone to keep me in place.
The responsibilities I hold is a tough road,
I need somebody to share the load.

The seventeen years have gone by,
And alone I'm still alive.
The years are held together with fear,
And still, for family I am here.
The day will come for my revelation,
And maybe solve this situation.
The time will come in 365 days,
And till that day I will stay.

The problem is some things can't wait,
Please, heal the injuries in my current state.
The problem persists there in my occipital,
Please, I'm sorry, but take me to the hospital.

Tom Zart Poem = THE POWER of WORDS & AMERICAN SOLDIER

THE POWER of WORDS

Words are the most powerful tools used by man
As hearts and souls reach for one another.
Sharing feelings of fear, wisdom and joy
Or our love for a significant other.

Where would we be without words
Which inspire, unite and motivate.
Songs, poems, stories, blogs, books
Wars, religion, love, lust and hate.

Jesus preached words to the multitudes
And nourish their hunger within.
The stories we tell portray our spirit
As examples of weakness, triumph or sin.

When we fail to control the rage of our thoughts
What is easy to say becomes hard to forgive.
Words are visions which portray our intent
The better we communicate, the better we live.

AMERICAN SOLDIER POEM

It's not a priest that gives us our freedom of religion
And it's not a reporter that gives us our freedom of voice.
It's not any judge, lawyer, politician, or teacher
But the blood of a soldier that has sacrificed by choice.

Our soldiers line up to be remembered
As the best of the best at their job.
They wish to be needed and depended on
To save all we love from the mob.

They risk their life and limb for liberty
Standing firm against evil unwilling to break.
To be part of something greater than themselves
They are willing to sacrifice whatever it will take.

The Art Of Words

words form
only part
of the message

silence
subtle body language
mood

tone
intuition
imply

meaning


Eastern Western
communication styles
are vastly different

as a poet I to may love
long quiet moments
own meditation silence


I also am suspicious of words
when the soul rings hollow
when eyes lie before my face

I also am more concerned
with purity of actions
I know many lack discipline


not understanding importance
of personal family honour
keeping word integrity prime

we believe in using silence
as a way of communicating
when deception is detected

why confront with knowledge
what perceived cannot admit
what weak souls hide from self


sometimes it is better
to talk too little
than to talk too much


take special note
of the pauses
between words

the thinking mind
strives for truth
nobility heartfelt


or a mask to fence behind


the mind that does not
seek to know itself
before important actions

decisions are made
is impetuous
lacking judgement

less talk
longer periods
of silence

use the strength
of silence
to unravel truth


the silence
which disturbs
a strategy

of deception
may unnerve
the deceitful


silence can be
unspoken agreement
a respectful sign

it might mean
something unpleasant
is better unsaid


saving face
a mercy given
manners refined

listen to silence
learn the power
the harmony of nature

The Pain That Words Can Do

Words can stay
like a birthmark
or a scar

Things that you say
things that you do
they work around the mind
like a mouse in a maze

Think before you speak
never underestimate
the pain that words can do

I Conquer The World With Words

I conquer the world with words,
conquer the mother tongue,
verbs, nouns, syntax.
I sweep away the beginning of things
and with a new language
that has the music of water the message of fire
I light the coming age
and stop time in your eyes
and wipe away the line
that separates
time from this single moment.

The Power of Words

'Tis a strange mystery, the power of words!
Life is in them, and death. A word can send
The crimson colour hurrying to the cheek.
Hurrying with many meanings; or can turn
The current cold and deadly to the heart.
Anger and fear are in them; grief and joy
Are on their sound; yet slight, impalpable:--
A word is but a breath of passing air.

The Sorrow Of Words

The sorrow of words that rarely tell themselves

They sail like brightly coloured balloons

Lost in their own universe

They spin off the edge of a tongue

kissing air and emptiness

Seldom filling loneliness

Leaving their sound like a symphony

A faint noise hanging in the air

Somewhere in the back of my mind

The radio is playing

A song I used to know

The Pleasing Kind Words And Courtesy

An elephant is controlled
by fastening to a heavy post, (kattuth thaRi) :

The furious cobra is quietened
by blowing special trumpet, (makudi) :

The wretched unworthy men are punished by beating,
subdued by law-enforcing person, usually King,
and tied with iron hand-cuffs;

The pleasing kind words and courtesy
- by good thought, speech and deed -
are the factors sufficient to develop intimacy
with virtuous and worthy people indeed!

Working on the value of words

Working on the value of words
~
some words require more
more than being spoken
written, read or listened to
some words need feeling
given their own soul
a touch of emotion
some words fall easily
across the page
or off the tongue
like a catchphrase
meaning almost nothing
words without value
spoken to be heard
said and not listened to
or written and missed
all without feeling
give words emotion
soul, fire and life
give words value
work the next line

Lovers In The World Of Words

we shall be lovers
in the world of the words
you can be a pronoun
not a name of a person
and i can be a verb
making love with you

in the world of words
you can just be a phrase
and i can be a clause
we can make a sentence
not a question but this
interjection but not that
loud but something so
discreet like a moaning
sound of a woman
titillated by a man inside
a scented room and then

for all we know in the world
of words we have become
a beautiful poem of love

insatiable desire, endless
quest of our real meaning.

The Sea Of Words

he could have gone to the sea
and start collecting the shells again
bring each to his ear
to remember

he is stuck in this sea of words
picking some syllables
to hear a not so distinct sound and

to hear a song
from his youth
he arranges the words again
like some old furniture
in the home

in the sea of words
he splashes
drinks the salt of this earth
and begins
to drown himself

sooner shall he breathe again
and swallow
the whole of the sea
and the continents
of this world
as one of the atoms in this
vast expanse
of nothing but space

I Played The Game Of Words For Years

I PLAYED THE GAME OF WORDS FOR YEARS


I played the game of words for years-
It did not bring me to Fame and Fortune-
I tried and tried,
But no one really cared for what I did.

Now I am quite old,
It appears I will never get to where I wanted to go,

I have sadness and regret for this,
But I doubt I can change it.

Life is not necessarily what we dream it will be
We strive,
But God may give us something different from what we hoped.

I am still alive
I am writing this now
I have had many years to write and try
I thank God for that.

The Love Of Words

Literature is like the sound of life,
So start with it to know your muse;
For the love of words is all that it takes.
How do you know where it came from when,
You have not set out to find it?
But life is like war to start with.
Ethics are full of principles and,
Creativity is part of mankind;
So release your dreams and go for it!
And with self confidence to gain your future,
Because with success comes recognition.
The love of words,
Self-esteemed and of a prestigious life style;
But show me your status-quo and,
I will tell you who you are.

The gift of words

Some words I swallowed
Like pots of rain
Their beauty quenched the thirst

Some words I swallowed
Like fire and pain
Their bitterness left me cursed

Some words I wrote
In anger and haste
And spat them on the palm

Some words I sought
To heal be chaste
To find the peace be calm

Some words I followed
Like footprints lost
In dying piles of leaves

Some words I followed
Like benevolent host
Once he really receives

Both the gift of words
Right from the lips
That used to sing the poles

And the gift of words
When the mind slips
Into the broken holes

The elusion of words

The elusion of words
~
I wish to say
Those words which elude me
Those I sometimes forget to say
Or I find to frightening to speak
I may misuse those words
Allow them to betray my tongue
And live with that regret
~
I do not wish to cheapen them
In saying you are beautiful
That I love you deeply
I fear they may become clichés
That you discount them
As mere polite conversations
~
How may I express myself
To reveal the truth of my soul
Frightened by the idea of loss
That I may watch you slip away
That how happy you have made me
Is a way I’d almost forgotten
That I never thought I’d feel again
~
I may not be the wisest of men
I am humble enough to admit
That as much as I play with words
Those which still elude my tongue
Talk of this love I feel for you

To Reciprocate...Without the Need of Words

Sometimes I fail to respond,
To a request that has been made.
Often in my humility,
I'm left with nothing to say.
Or wish within myself,
I could communicate...
Without words to select from.
Or create a debate,
I did not intend.

And then I don't want to offend.
Anyone who is sensitive,
And may not comprehend...
What it is I am feeling then.

Sometimes I fail to respond,
To a request that has been made.
Often in my humility,
I'm left with nothing to say.

And I guess that is why I am blessed to write.
With a craving that feeds my appetite.
And learning from my own experiences,
I have preferences and things I like.
With a hope within me,
One day I might...
Share nibbles and bits of my life,
And to reciprocate...
Without the need of words,
Or one sound made.

And let our eyes just express,
What is digested.

The power of words

Sometimes when you had
an idea for a poem
you didn’t jot it down
and let it be
to fade away into the naught
as if it really didn’t matter
or your words had lost their power

or was there a hidden fear,
something that you didn’t
want to talk about
or something that you didn’t
want to appear,
something that you were afraid
would kill your luck
or disturb your thoughts?

When we spoke at times
you would sarcastically say
go and write a poem about it
and I wonder if you really
didn’t care about writing
or just not about me
or was it jealousy?

Sometimes when the words
of a great poem came to me
you would demand that I immediately
do something for you
to proof my love
and not give me the opportunity
to capture the sacred words.

Yet, as time went by
and I had to leave
the words came back to you
and great verses appeared
and you said that I could string out
poems to the nth power
and wanted me
to write great messages as well
and I was afraid that card like lines
would kill the magic of words in me.

The Defeat Of Words....

i am lost in the forest of words
i always have more to say, more is there in the thinking
that chokes whatever word i like to say,
and i end up
foolish, before an audience that waits for my
mouth to shape an embroidered
idea,
a dressed woman ready for
the ball,
a young woman undressing
before she bathes in the
river

of time

a word, and then i look at all of them
those who wants to be awed
mouths open, agape
hands

and i ask myself
what is there to be said?

there is so much to be thought about
and there is no
moment wasted in trying to capture
what beauty is there
which must stay as beautiful as it
is never
said., ,

it is more proper
untouched by the fingers of words

just like life, at first i feel that it must be written
sort of

this was it, this was how it felt, what we saw
what be believe in

ah, on an afternoon,
finding those drift woods washed ashore
children pulling their arms

you realize how emphatic things are
rather than calculate, and emote
and do logic,
a circus of numbers,
tightrope equations,

there is more that the stars are saying
there is more to the wide open skies
in all their
silence for they have long spoken
before i
was born
