You Cannot!

you cannot win freedom by bloodshed!
fighting for preordained sections of land,
oil and mineral rights....

we dont own the earth,
................and never will!

you cannot convert other peoples
to your capitalistic form of Christianity
with a sword and vengeance....

ask the Native Americans
.....how they feel about this!

you cannot bring about justice,
when your judicial system is oiled
with money and color...

when you have more people in prison
than any other country!

you cannot convince anyone to do
the right thing when everything you do
is based on selfish greed....

doing the right thing means being human,
being human is something we've forgotten!

you cannot bring about change,
unless you're willing to change yourselves...
all good things begin within....

we are what we choose to be,
not what we pretend to be!

Without Hope, You Cannot Start The Day

Hold still now for the moving information close to you.
You could never force it in your life: this decision to break it.
Without hope, you cannot start the day.
Its coming clear Ive noticed;
Its a different face youre showing.
Its another welcome back.
I dont imagine it could be this way so jealous!
Only you can tell it; tell me why.
Only you call tell it.
Only you can say.
In between this moving out to save your soul it came away,
And took it out;
Oh why?
Fire burning wild, burning in the night, chasing in the wind;
Shadows always dance in the rain, ringing into the fire.
Doesnt matter who, who can see in the smile.
Hope in the rain, open the flame, coming back in the night.
I can see the rhythm of the rain; I can see it shout back under:
I can see what youre thinking of
I can see what you think you need
I can see what youre thinking of
I can see that it must be love
Shadows come alight from the vision that flowed;
Shake it off - passion is the flame that fired.
Does it matter? can you give? can you hear it come?
Can you see youre like?
Whats the matter? dont you want to risk? dont you want to hold me?
Hold me, dance in the rain.
I can see the love in your eyes; I can see you coming.
I can see what youre thinking of
I can see what you think you want
I can see what youre thinking of
I can see that it must be love
Sweet suffering, love protection: need it, you need; come to me.
Believe it, better by far, your heart is there;
Most of all: believe it.
Perfection reaction...

Emily Dickinson

You cannot put a Fire out

530

You cannot put a Fire out—
A Thing that can ignite
Can go, itself, without a Fan—
Upon the slowest Night—

You cannot fold a Flood—
And put it in a Drawer—
Because the Winds would find it out—
And tell your Cedar Floor—

You Cannot Tell Me!

you cannot tell me
that freedom sees color,
religion, or financial status.

you cannot tell me
that freedom divides
between classes.

you cannot tell me
that freedom is for the few,
and not for the many.

you cannot tell me
that freedom can be bought,
sold, or traded.

you cannot tell me
that freedom can be won
by destroying innocent lives.

you cannot tell me
that freedom invades other countries
for political or economic reasons.

you cannot tell me
that freedom exists without justice.
you cannot tell me

that freedom is out of reach!

Love is something that you cannot remove (Catena Rondo)

Love is something that you cannot remove
quite suddenly you know, she knows it too
it is in everything that you say and do,
love is something that you cannot remove

quite suddenly you know, she knows it too,
it is the very quaintest kind of thing
that to you both is suddenly happening
quite suddenly you know, she knows it too,

it is the very quaintest kind of thing
when sense and sensibility brings
to your actions, thoughts and your feelings wings
it is the very quaintest kind of thing

when sense and sensibility brings
a secret understanding that is true,
sincerity that encompass both of you
when sense and sensibility brings

a secret understanding that is true,
when a look carries a message to both
that goes much further than any oath
a secret understanding that is true,

when a look carries a message to both
when the body reacts to a single touch
when pre-comprehension says very much
when a look carries a message to both

when the body reacts to a single touch
when life seems so much greater than it is,
when mere company is full of much bliss
when the body reacts to a single touch,

when life seems so much greater than it is,
when a bond develops around the divine,
selfless you loose the own me and mine
when life seems so much greater than it is,

when a bond develops around the divine
where although separate, you become one,
without each other hardly want to live on
when a bond develops around the divine

where although separate, you become one;
love is something that you cannot remove,
to each other you do not have to prove
where although separate, you become one,

love is something that you cannot remove
quite suddenly you know, she knows it too
it is in everything that you say and do,
love is something that you cannot remove.

You Cannot Hide Away

Oh my sweet lover,
I will do as you have requested;
But try to understand the muse of love when you are touched,
Because you cannot hide away from the truth!

You cannot even give them your heart

i look at him
and he looks at me

i wish to take him
to my heart
and hold him dear

he looks at me
and draws that
divisive line
one knows
when one has lived
long enough together

he becomes
so near yet so far

with some people
you cannot even give
them your heart

You Rather Have Yours Split Without a Banana

No one has to know...
You rather have yours split,
Without a banana.
You wish to have your toppings licked.
Without the interference of nuts,
When you do it.
You like to experiment,
With different flavors you taste.
You'd like to take that cherry,
Between your teeth and satiate.

Do not if you cannot

.

You cannot stop
rain from falling.
You cannot stop
sun from shining
and earth from heating.
If you try,
it is a miserable attempt.
You cannot stop
anything from falling
in love with the other.
If you snap the love
from its growing,
it is not your virtue.
It is your sadism.
20.04.2001, Pmdi

You cannot stop me from remembering you

You meet or not
My love shall never die
You may go far away
I shall never forget you
How much you may try
You shall have to come
In my dreams
Spent time with me
After all
Mine's was pure love
Unlike a game for you
You did your part
Let my heart do its
You may not remember me
You cannot stop me
From remembering you

You Cannot Sing

I like the fact you cannot sing
You cannot try to con me in
You do not need to hide behind
A hidden interest; ‘hard to find'

You do not need the neck to play
To pay for what you wish your way
You will never say it twice
Nor make beauty at truths sacrifice

You
Don't need sweet heated lines
To wake or bate my wide eyed pines
For you
My true who cannot sing
Has learnt to pluck a different string.

You cannot turn my smile upside down

But there is just always
Always a smile on my face
And that’s something you can’t replace
You cannot turn my smile upside down

Oh my teeth are so white
They are meant to be in sight
My breath smells like mint
Do you get the hint?
You cannot turn my smile upside down

You can try
You can hope
You can wish
You can hate
You can gossip
Or just say it to my face
You can lie
But you cannot turn my smile upside down

You Cannot Stop Me....

i am a free man by choice.
you've allowed me to read, to question,
and to reason....
now nothing you can do to me
will take away my freedom.
you can imprison or kill my body,
but this body is old and dying anyway.
you can silence my mouth,
but my eyes will sing.
you can pluck out my eyes,
then my feet will sing.
you can cut off my feet,
and my heart will sing.
you can bury my heart,
and the very earth will sing.
i am free!
you cannot stop me from singing!

There are things that you cannot avoid

There are things that you cannot avoid
like the call-up instruction which cruelly
brings you to another world and measure you out
for whom you must become and be and stay
and you can never find escape
from violence, killing, guilt and grief.

There are things that a soldier cannot avoid
like war that cruelly let people suffer
with flames, bullets and bombs
and there are events that you cannot forget,
although you and you comrades freed the innocent
and at night it’s sweated out in dreams
and there are things that you cannot avoid.

You Cant Win

Youll try and youll try again
But you know you cant win
Youll try and youll try again
But you know you cant win
What more can I say now?
What more can I do?
No need to feel sad now
cause times are pretty thin
And you cant win
You cant win
You cant win
Try and do what you can
But you know you cant win
You say you dont understand
But you know you cant win
What more can you say now?
What more can you do?
No need to feel sad now
cause times are pretty thin
And you cant win
You cant win
You cant win
What more can I say now?
What more can I do?
No need to feel sad now
cause times are pretty thin
You cant win
You cant win
You cant win

Sonnet XIX: You Cannot Love

To Humor

You cannot love, my pretty heart, and why?
There was a time you told me that you would;
But now again you will the same deny,
If it might please you, would to God you could.
What, will you hate? Nay, that you will not, neither.
Nor love nor hate, how then? What will you do?
What, will you keep a mean then betwixt either,
Or will you love me and yet hate me, too?
Yet serves this not. What next? What other shift?
You will, and will not; what a coil is here.
I see your craft, now I perceive your drift,
And all this while I was mistaken there;
Your love and hate is this, I now do prove you:
You love in hate, by hate to make me love you.

Defy You

You may push me around
But you cannot win
You may throw me down
But Ill rise again
The more you say
The more I defy you
So get out of my face
You cannot stop us
You cannot bring us down
Never give up
We go on and on
Youll never break us
Never bring us down
We are alive!
The wind blows
Ill lean into the wind
My anger grows
Ill use it to win
The more you say
The more I defy you
So get out of my way
All my will
All my strength
Rip it out
Start again
You cannot stop us
You cannot bring us down
Never give up
We go on and on
Youll never break us
Never bring us down
We are alive!
Can you leave it all behind?
Can you leave it all behind?
Cause you cant go back
You cant go back

If You Cannot Love Nature You Cannot Love Life

In a Human World where greed and narcissism is rife
If you cannot love Nature you cannot love life
With what I say here you may well disagree
But that's your opinion and that's fine with me.

We need her to live on her we do depend
Our marvellous Mother Nature humanity's friend
And if you cannot love her it does seem sad to say
On the road to enlightenment you've lost your way.

You do not love Nature you do make that clear
But to hear you say so much is so sad to hear
Out of an act of Nature the reason you are here today
Yet sad to think respect to her you cannot pay.

You see it as okay that more trees are cut down
To make way for new factories in the big town
And if you cannot love Nature though from her you gain
Then you cannot love life I do say it again.

You Can Make The World To Live In

You Can make the World to live in a far better place
Not for yourself alone but for the whole human race
By treating everyone as your equal if you look you will find
That those different to you in their ways good and kind.

Racism born of ignorance that does seem fair to say
And racists seem out of place in the World of today
In a multicultural World they do not fit in
If you do not show respect then respect you cannot win.

Some people in their small ways are so very small
They believe on a fair go for their own kind but not on a fair go for all
In a multicultural society they have no part to play
They are self defeatist it does seem that way.

We are what we think we are and it does seem to me
That our reflective mirror in others we see
If the spirit of egalatarianism and the fair go for all we embrace
The World for us living in it is a much better place.
