We Are Waiting For Another Poem

WE ARE WAITING FOR ANOTHER POEM

We are waiting for another Poem,
But we do not know what it will be.
No wonder we pray for it -
With wonder and fear and worry.

My Poems Are Questions For Me

MY POEMS ARE QUESTIONS FOR ME

My poems are questions for me
No one else need care to know about-
My poems are prayers to G-d
I cannot help repeating -
Expressions of wonder and feeling
I cannot help hearing.

Upon a Chair Not Reserved for Me

to sit in a chair
not reserved for me
is disgrace
at the utmost
to poetry,

in truth
the house on the clouds
and winds
and seas
a life dedicated to the
flitting moon
does not have
a chair
neither a feet
nor root
of hair...

The Poems Are Done For Now

THE POEMS ARE DONE FOR NOW

The poems are done for now
I pray they will return again-

This is one, perhaps-
Or perhaps, it’s the sign
That the poems
Never were,
And I only said they were.

Is this a poem?
Am I a writer,
Or not?

You Are Always With Me

One young goat,
One fat cow,
For, you are always with me!
And, all that i have are reserved for you.
One fat goat,
One young cow,
But, try to humble yourselves in this life;
And serve one another in peace,
For, you are always with me.

The Poems Are Gone For Now

THE POEMS ARE GONE FOR NOW

The poems are gone for now
I am leaving them –

Inside myself
A different music
If it is that-

I do not know
If and when
They will come back.

I do not know
If I ever again
Will express my deepest feeling
In words.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Home, My Little Children, Hear Are Songs For You

COME, my little children, here are songs for you;
Some are short and some are long, and all, all are new.
You must learn to sing them very small and clear,
Very true to time and tune and pleasing to the ear.

Mark the note that rises, mark the notes that fall,
Mark the time when broken, and the swing of it all.
So when night is come, and you have gone to bed,
All the songs you love to sing shall echo in your head.

Men Are Made For Women

The life runs on two tracks
both needs to be parallel
the difference of a thread
makes the life to be out track
and leaves a ruin behind.

But believe in me
men are made for women
men are made for safety and security
for women, to fulfill their all needs
the existence of this world is
only with the love of women

Men betray at every stage
but women betray very often
that so they maintain to run the life
on the parallel track of life.

You Are In For Quite a Surprise

You have only been solicited,
To assist in their progess...
And for their benefit.
When that is done,
You are kicked to the curb...
Like everyone who has come.
To discover they are not the only ones.

Don't think to them you are special!
You should have known that,
As a fact before you arrived.
Don't look to them to keep that vision rising.
If you do...
You are in for quite a surprise.
This is about 'them'!
Not about you in their eyes!

Poems Are Made For Beautiful Things

POEMS ARE MADE FOR BEAUTIFUL THINGS

(Written for the Ilui Neshamah of Rabbi Gabriel and Rivka Holtzberg who were murdered in the Chabad House in Mumbai November 2008)

Poems are made for beautiful things-
Not for murder and for terror -
Not for cruel sudden deaths-
Not for hatred which kills without question-
And justifies itself,
By some absolute inhumane ideal.

Poems are made for life
Not Death-
We Jews want to live,
And they the Suicide- bomber- people,
to Murder their way to Eternity.

Dale Carnegie

One of the most appalling comments on our present way of life is that half of all the beds in our hospitals are reserved for patients with nervous and mental troubles, patients who have collapsed under the crushing burden of accumulated yesterdays and fearful tomorrows. Yet a vast majority of those people would be walking the streets today, leading happy, useful lives, if they had only heeded the words of Jesus: "Have no anxiety about the morrow"; or the words of Sir William Osler; "Live in day-tight compartments.

They are starving for happiness

They are starving for happiness
Their belly is full of mess
Joy is their food
Without it their dead

Starving all way of hunger
Cry in every saw they looked
Fingers are in cold, shivering
They are starving for happiness

Mind looked in every crying eye
Drops let fall. As they saw
No mistakes done, no wonder
They are starving for happiness

Open hair, all scenes amazing
No soft blow of air, nothing
They can’t survive more
They are starving for happiness

Heart full of sorrows, no glow
Hands red, can’t move long
Lot of hunger, full of blood
They are starving for happiness

Shakespeare, Where Are You? (For Harold Bloom)

SHAKESPEARE, WHERE ARE YOU? (FOR HAROLD BLOOM)

Shakespeare, where are you?
You should be living at this hour.
Literature has need of you.
We have become a fen of stagnant voices
A parody of noble and great lines
All our efforts have become a deriding
Of our own spirit.
We need your Beauty and your Magnitude
The Metaphoric motions of your Incredible most awkward Lines
We need Your Richness and Your Song
Your Endless Entertainment of our own Emotions
Your deep play of Character and Feeling
We need you now Shakespeare
To remind us that to be Human
Is still to be the Glory Jest and Riddle
And that our voices somehow can still say
In Times beyond our own knowing
The wisdom and the way
To what is best within and beyond us

These Words Are Meant For You

So there is no confusion let clarity clarify here
these words on this page are meant for you;
you.

Strung along these lines are precious intents
longing longings from down deep where souls converse,
floodings of sentiments traversing time and distance all
forming a straight line to you.

Gratitude is the staff that allows me to walk and write-
bread given me by you
sustains;
for clarity's sake
understand
these words are meant for you;
you.

Time and distance, acquaintance
and daily externals and such
mean less than these
soul exchanges proffered.

These words are meant for you;
yes you.

In the interstices words allow
in the hurried moments
where emotions and ideas fly
there is only I you and the written page
and that is enough

These words are meant for you-J

The knives are out for me

I hauled you out
Of the poverty of
The gutter
I took you away
From the bullet riddled
Neighborhoods of the ghetto
I clothed you and made you
Smart and look at you now
You're beautiful you look
Like the model from the cover
Of the magazine and you haven't
Disappointed me and you go on
And you amaze me and pound for
Pound you match the love between us
But now the knives are out for me
And those who looked down at you
From the lofty armchairs are
The first to say how
Ill matched we are
And out of the frustration of
Where you come from from a no hoper
I became responsible for your education
And you're the best my baby you can
Intellectualize with the greatest I'm
So proud of you
But the knives are out for me
And I who is not after your money am now
Accused of exploiting you and I can only
Depend on your love and your loyalty
To defend my dignity and my honor

These Boots Are Made For Walking

You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
Youve been amessin where you shouldnt ve been amessin
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and thats just what theyll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
You keep lyin when you oughta be truthin
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin when you oughta be achangin
Whats right is right but you aint been right yet
These boots are made for walking, and thats just what theyll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
Leadbreak
You keep playing where you shouldnt be playing
And you keep thinking that youll never get burnt (hah)
Well, Ive just found me a brand new box of matches (yeah)
And what he knows you aint had time to learn
These boots are made for walking, and thats just what theyll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
Spoken
Are you ready, boots?
Start walkin

Are You For Real?

Are you for real?
hey you...
are you feelin like me too?
i need to get an answer out of you
well all the days
all the time
all the lies lie on the line
did you just try to set me off?
well yeah you know i'm easy
and i know its true
that this situation
isn't so easy on you
cause i
i need to know what you want i
i wonder how you feel and i
i need to know what you want
i cannot guess anymore
are you for real?
hey you...
is there truth behind your lies?
is all this love
or is it compromise?
well all the days
all the time
no regrets you're on my mind
did you just try to set me off?
well yeah this awkward silence
feels so cold and used
is this infatuation
or am i addicted to you?
chorus
reverse the beat back up direction
lies in trust and planned out deceptions
the look in your eyes and verbal dissections
lose myself in you and sex then rejection
self destruct in your arms and your words stack to kill
are you for real?
hey you...
are you feeling lonely too?
well i need to get some answers..
some answers
chorus

They Are Waiting For Him To Fail

They are waiting for him to fail!

'Who?
Waiting for 'who' to fail? '

President Obama?

'Have you seen the signs of decadence?
How long have people stood by?
Many sitting on the fence.
As generations fed greed...
And slimed the skyline,
With crooks and thieves!
To leave your pockets now empty.

Who has already failed who here?
Your local leeching politicians...
Proving their incompetence to fill leading positions?

This stench has been left to nurture,
Long before your thoughts of a Black man
Being your President,
Slammed that reality and you to the floor.
That 'ridiculous' idea...
Is at everyone's front door now.

And he did not run to become elected,
To further failures long neglected.
However...
If he 'is' here to fail,
To succumb to fools with those wishes...
The only thing they would notice about 'that',
Would be the fact he carries the pressures of being Black.
And any good deed that succeeds,
Will be ignored.

He comes to lead!
Not to deplete your sanity with deceit.
Even though this activity might continue,
To leave those who may be seeking more of it...
Left craving in withdrawal pains! '

The Girls Are Not For Sale

Can you hear my voice

Can't you see my tears

Can't you see how small my hands still are

I'm the little
girl

Who wants to live her childhood

To play

To run

To sing

I want to grow up with my friends

I will go to school and be a good student

I will receive the best education

And I will graduate from the highest schools

I will be the person who can depend on herself

I want to be the woman who can protect her rights

To work and build my home

I want to be a lawyer

To defend the stolen rights

To Break the bad rules of jungle

To be a good and honest wife and the careful mother

When the right time comes

The girls are not for sale

When the old minds will understand that

When the cruel hearts will wake up to see

That the little girls are still pure angels

Do not steal away their rights to live

As a human being

They are not for sale
They need the innocent care

They need to feel safe

At the world surrounded with fear

Take off your nasty hands

The girls are not for sale

For the sake of millions of stolen childhoods

And their stolen futures and forgotten rights to have a future

And for those who are deprived from existing their normal lives.

Take off your nasty hands.
