The Dragon and The Phoenix (version one)

The Dragon and The Phoenix (version one) :
The sleeping Tiger lies in a mist, covered in mystery.
Who is he, what is his purpose?
The sleeping Flame lies in a cloud, shrouded by time.
Who is she, what is her purpose?
As the could falls in the night, and mingles in the mist... the Flame touches the Tiger and both awaken. The Flame brightens and swirls around the Tiger, the Tiger roars as the flames engulf him and he transforms into the wise Dragon. The Flame crackles as the Dragon's roar sounds through the night. The crackle becomes a cry of joy as the Dragon breathes a breath of fire upon the Flame, adding his burning love to hers. The Flame turns into a fiery bird with a great
cry. A Phoenix has been born, and a Dragon has grown in the fires of love. This bond forged is stronger than steel, stronger than the very foundations of the earth.
Nothing and no one can break this love. The love of the Dragon and the Phoenix will live beyond the end of time, their hearts forever entwined. Purpose has been found, the balance formed by the Dragon and Phoenix that awakened them is their purpose. The love they share forever is a shining light for all who despair; the Dragon and Phoenix are smiled upon by the Creator for they are what he intended love between two to be.

The Dragon and the Phoenix (version two) :

The Dragon and the Phoenix (version two) :
The Tiger lies in a mist, shrouded in mystery.
Who is she, what is her purpose?
The Dragon lies upon a cloud, covered by time.
Who is he, what is his purpose?
The cloud and Dragon descend into the mist as the moon rises, meshing together.
The Tiger prowls through cloud and mist; the Dragon growls, wary of this new creature in his midst.
Startled by the new noise in her domain the Tiger hisses and tenses.Silver eyes meet those of green, stillness ensues.
'Why does it not attack, this beast of the forest? ' he thinks.
'Will this being from the skies run or strike? ' she thinks.
The Dragon becomes stone still, waiting, for what he knows not.
'Does this armored creature of flight even live? ' she wonders.
The Tiger slowly lays a paw against the Dragon's scaly hide, sparks of blue fly from the point of contact, the Tiger jumps back with a howl of surprise. 'What is this magic? ! ' she cries.
The Dragon's face becomes filled with the expression of joy 'Yin! ' cries he. The Tiger freezes in shock 'Yang? At last, we can be one once again! '
The Dragon drew a great breath and breathed the fires of his love unto the Tiger, from her ashes arose a mighty Phoenix.. A great cry of joy sounded through the night, a cry of joy: 'Forever one are we! Together in the skies for all eternity shall we be! '

The Struggle To Overcome The Difference Between The Impossible And The Possible'(Version-1 Written by Myself)

The struggle to overcome the difference between the impossible and the possible.
Hidden inside like a fatal wound in the mind
Encouragement has been playing the role of a crucible

Staring at the dilemma “Struggle” itself has gone mad
Transformable attitude perhaps can make the difference
Reality must be sometimes so sad
Unless you are able to struggle towards maturity
Go! Go right away to fight the impossibility
Gild yourself with the golden rules of purity
Let not the ‘lie’ prevail over the Truth
Everywhere you go take this with your spirit

Thought surrounds me always how to beat the uncouth
Or the impossible which should be the word to be precise

Off and on I force myself to conquer the differences
Vastly I practice how to exercise
Exercise to maintain life’s morality
Recoil if any possible stain of sin occurs
Can anyone vanquish this hardest difference of ability?
Oh! Yes, Sometimes I feel this ‘anyone’ is me
May be it is ‘Me’ because I know the difference
Entirely apprehensible that is if you can see

Then again to eject the impossibilities isn’t always good
Have to have patience not being over confident
End is the beginning sometimes where things can go rude

Day-Dreamers can hardly take the challenge
In fact everything is possible on this earth
For will power we just need to know our range
Fake or real Possibilities can change the Impossible
Everywhere we go we have the options
“Really? ”you may ask which is also possible
Everywhere we go we have our ways
Next to us we have it which I bear away to win
Can we ever dare to face those days?
Endless conceivable things when knock at the door

Believe it or leave it we have to face it out
Even if you consider this an infrequent delirium lying on the floor
There’s no way we could escape facing the conflict
Wondering how we have to do this?
Easy, so easy, even you can thus have the verdict
Especially if you fail to submit yourself to the task
Nobody is ever going to help you

The struggling mind of yours will help if you ask
Hideous thoughts may disdain your motives
Effectively you will be your own master

If only you can forget your relatives
Mind you here even your kindred won’t let you struggle
Perhaps they love you but they won't let you do the ‘Impossible’
Only what they can do is your secret to smuggle
So, Beware! If you want the unattainable
Sloth and somber here are the foes
Impatience behavior shouldn’t be maintainable
Beautiful varnish of time tries to enamour
Love will never meet there the cry craven
Especially when the door of 'Possibility' is actually ajar

Airily we must not always struggle to prepare
No wrack is anywhere to befall
Doing things in God’s name can hinder you to scare

There’s no impossibility if we can be strong
Highly anticipated meditative power can change it all
Even the possibilities sometimes can be wrong

Pay no heed rather look forward to achieve
Obviously the darkness has no space to fulfill
Smile and learn not to pile on the agony to grieve
Soul with soul, mind with mind is the bond
Incorporated to overcome all that is to come
Be sure not to join with the coward or the vagabond
Love to struggle with God’s will till the end of the day
Eventually ‘Nothing is Impossible’ is what you will find to say.

The 1 I Hate is

The 1 I hate is in the 8th grade
The 1 I hate is on the basketball team

The 1 I hate is on my afterschool bus
The 1 I hate is tall
The 1 I hate is 16
The 1 I hate is ugly
The 1 I hate is black

Emptying my Lungs at the top of the World

Sitting atop the westernized
version of Haleakala,
my own Molokini;
staring at my feet and
the following abyss.

a road going nowhere.

wisps of elder hair amongst
a blue face,
pulling at my lips
enveloped by the bliss

life to the left, the right,
in front and behind.

a preferred isolation.

The Dork

I'd say my moment of greatest glory
was when the hottest girl in 9th grade
had her friend come up to me
and say she liked me

that was the year
I warmed the bench
for the basketball team
and programmed my TI-82 calculator
to do my homework

but she never really followed up
not because she's stuck up
she just discovered what a dork I am

The Unholy Hour...

the town is always noisy at night,
the drunkards are singing in loud voices
off tune, without the sense of
compassion to the piece
or respect to the great composer,

at the other side is the basketball
in loud speakers, the referee is
eating his words and castigating
the syllables at this unholy hour,

as i write this piece, perhaps literally
i feel unperturbed. To each his own
noise, to each his own way of finding
peace for this indeed is an unholy hour.

In The Land Of Ham!

In the land of Ham!
Teemed with frogs and flies;
In the land of your muse,
Backed with the muse of love and care;
But, the basketball falls beside you today.

There is nothing new under the sun! !
However, mushrooms are vegetables;
And like the churning of cream to make butter,
But, kindness is deceitful at times.

The head of the Babylonian systems!
The adulterer waits for the dusk;
However, every river flows to the sea,
Yet still, the sea is never full.

The First Sigh

i think i have to write this
before i die.

You are beautiful.

I like to be a part of you.
But God has disapproved it.

His people had spoken
and They are his Sole Voice

The Iron Rod that burns
People who renege Upon
The Order,

Because There Must be
One System,

One Color,

The Other Version is
An Outlaw.

Ideas Other Than This One
Are Hanged.

Dead. Infamous.
Sham.

You are Beautiful and
I love you: Your soul & Your Body.

It is sad I never told you
About this.

If I did, I cannot imagine
What's Next.

Let us just forget
I am not what you
Resemble Me to be.

Robert Graves

The Persian Version

Truth-loving Persians do not dwell upon
The trivial skirmish fought near Marathon.
As for the Greek theatrical tradition
Which represents that summer's expedition
Not as a mere reconnaisance in force
By three brigades of foot and one of horse
(Their left flank covered by some obsolete
Light craft detached from the main Persian fleet)
But as a grandiose, ill-starred attempt
To conquer Greece - they treat it with contempt;
And only incidentally refute
Major Greek claims, by stressing what repute
The Persian monarch and the Persian nation
Won by this salutary demonstration:
Despite a strong defence and adverse weather
All arms combined magnificently together.

The Siege Of Kazan. (Tartar Song, From The Prose Version Of Chodzko)

Black are the moors before Kazan,
And their stagnant waters smell of blood:
I said in my heart, with horse and man,
I will swim across this shallow flood.

Under the feet of Argamack,
Like new moons were the shoes he bare,
Silken trappings hung on his back,
In a talisman on his neck, a prayer.

My warriors, thought I, are following me;
But when I looked behind, alas!
Not one of all the band could I see,
All had sunk in the black morass!

Where are our shallow fords? and where
The power of Kazan with its fourfold gates?
From the prison windows our maidens fair
Talk of us still through the iron grates.

We cannot hear them; for horse and man
Lie buried deep in the dark abyss!
Ah! the black day hath come down on Kazan!
Ah! was ever a grief like this?

To The Stork. (Armenian Popular Song, From The Prose Version Of Alishan)

Welcome, O Stork! that dost wing
Thy flight from the far-away!
Thou hast brought us the signs of Spring,
Thou hast made our sad hearts gay.

Descend, O Stork! descend
Upon our roof to rest;
In our ash-tree, O my friend,
My darling, make thy nest.

To thee, O Stork, I complain,
O Stork, to thee I impart
The thousand sorrows, the pain
And aching of my heart.

When thou away didst go,
Away from this tree of ours,
The withering winds did blow,
And dried up all the flowers.

Dark grew the brilliant sky,
Cloudy and dark and drear;
They were breaking the snow on high,
And winter was drawing near.

From Varaca's rocky wall,
From the rock of Varaca unrolled,
the snow came and covered all,
And the green meadow was cold.

O Stork, our garden with snow
Was hidden away and lost,
Mid the rose-trees that in it grow
Were withered by snow and frost.

The Case Of A Waterfall

a waterfall can be seen in different angles
different versions can be said
how a waterfall falls from a very high cliff

the first version is the waterfall itself
the second as you turn clockwise
gives you the version of a fog hanging on a cliff
or a horizon of white clouds
the third version, as you turn another quarter
again on a clockwise direction gives you a water fountain
going up the sky
and the last version on another clockwise
or quarter turn gives you the rage of the river
flowing to the sea

that is how reality appears to our very eyes
some points of view

how life becomes depends on how we see it
coupled with our faith
within ourselves

to one who sees a twisted point of view from a dog's eyes
life appears like a tick sucking blood from the armpit of
a puppy

blood is drained and stored on a bloating stomach
of the tick. Life is actually, how you see it.

Things Ain't Workin' Out Down At The Farm (version 1)

Things Ain't Working Out Down At The Farm (Lynott)
-----------------------------------------
There goes Moses carrying his bible book
Never has a problem, just has a cup
It's good clean alcohol and it fills you up
And here I go laughing like a fool, yeah
Things ain't working out down at the farm
Got no bag or baggage or love to keep me warm
And I ain't been in trouble since the day I was born
Things ain't working out down at the farm
I used to spend my sunny days supping aways
Along came Gogarty and he put me away
Down at the station was kept for strays
And I went laughing, geez he like busting me, he liked busting me
He caught me unawares and he made me strip naked
Oh I was scared, oh I was scared, I was shaking
And he said
It's you and me
And me and you
And me and me
And you and you
And me and me
And I just kept laughing like a fool, yeah
Things ain't working out down at the farm

What others do to me the shorter version.

When anyone hurts me, I gave the reason.
When anyone leaves me, this is the answer for my behavior.
When anyone corrects me, I showed ignorance.
Whatever others do to me, I gave the reason for all.

Can I blame anyone?

No! I can only bless and love them with the love of God, because
everything was necessary to bring out what I am today.

PS: When anyone gives me happiness, I can rejoyce, I made him/her happy first.

Remember, what I see in others it is in me.
They are mirroring back my hidden ways according to Thee.
Look into myself to sort out what did I do,
To correct it in ME and never criticize YOU.
We are all a separate world on display,
What goes on around us comes out of our brain way.
There is no place to get offended,
Just try to correct the problem in ourselves
And don't get agitated.
Since we cannot force others or shut them up,
We must handle ourselves to help on that
Do something in us, stop drinking of that cup.

The Boy And The Brook. (Armenian Popular Song, From The Prose Version Of Alishan)

Down from yon distant mountain height
The brooklet flows through the village street;
A boy comes forth to wash his hands,
Washing, yes washing, there he stands,
In the water cool and sweet.

Brook, from what mountain dost thou come,
O my brooklet cool and sweet!
I come from yon mountain high and cold,
Where lieth the new snow on the old,
And melts in the summer heat.

Brook, to what river dost thou go?
O my brooklet cool and sweet!
I go to the river there below
Where in bunches the violets grow,
And sun and shadow meet.

Brook, to what garden dost thou go?
O my brooklet cool and sweet!
I go to the garden in the vale
Where all night long the nightingale
Her love-song doth repeat.

Brook, to what fountain dost thou go?
O my brooklet cool and sweet!
I go to the fountain at whose brink
The maid that loves thee comes to drink,
And whenever she looks therein,
I rise to meet her, and kiss her chin,
And my joy is then complete.

The Songs of Dead Rivers

I lounge inside the songs of dead rivers
Where better women smile at me naked atop
The tufts greener than all Christmas trees;
But oh, how these lands are wicked, even
If calmed: The king is smiling even while
Possessed, while the traffic is heady and conductive.

I dress out for PE, but don’t work out:
I make laps around the basketball courts and take
Notes, while the Jewish students collect on the
Fiascos which they better perceive, which
They have been working towards, never mindful
Of even the soccer moms’ leggy tresses,
Their dun ring fingers and extroverted scents.

Now in the cacophony of Catholic churches the
Play strums: She is wearing the red dress, smoky and
Ethereal. From Canada, and a thief crawls through her
Window, and her eyes are for him and glowing
Something mythical. Like a fire in a horn up on stage,
Like a specific bouquet damply bequeathed above
A loved one’s coffin I have singled out, as I wait
For the trucks to come, to unload from them
Whatever it is I have to sell.

The memorable day

Today is a day to remember;
A day to recur in a slumber.
You were very much there
As you had been told earlier
I would come there to see you,
The Onum two days away though.
A great concession, indeed.

On your way to the work place
I met you to your surprise
And left with you in private
My papers of verses of you,
The edited version with some new.
A marvelous response, indeed.

On my pretext-visit to the work place
A little later, you lent me warmth
In your talks and looks
Assuring from that you haven’t
Been offended by my act a little ago.
A reassuring love, indeed.

Time and space didn’t dry our love.
In the absence of those who know
Us well, how light you were and
What nonsense we spoke!
Well written on your face was
That you enjoyed my presence.
A fountain of essence, indeed

Little had I thought when I came to you
That you would be present, as told, to see me
Or you would be willing to encourage
My connections by accepting my love songs.
Such was the case, indeed.

This song was first released on the its about time album. it is the only album this song appears on. it only appears on the cd version of this album.
I love the ocean on a peaceful morning
I love the freedom of a single man
I love the woman who just drives me crazy
I just cant help it thats the way I am
I dont like war
I dont like politicians
Dont like the one who has an angry hand

Dont like the one who doesnt give a damn

We can make love, we can fight
Its all right, its all right
We can make love, we can fight
We can make love
I love the lord
I love the little people
I love the one who is a gentle man
I love the rivers in the rocky mountains
I just cant help it thats the way I am
Ive been to boston and Ive been to china
Ive been around the world and back again
Ive got a hunger that just keeps me running
I just cant help it thats the way I am
Its all right, its all right
We can make love, we can fight
Its all right, its all right
We can make love, we can fight
We can make love

The Idiot Son Of An Asshole

NoFX - Idiot Son Of An Asshole lyrics
He's not smart, a C student
And that's after buying his way into school
Beady eyes, and he's kinda dyslexic
Can he read? No one's really quite sure
He signs stuff and he executes people
Maybe that's why, he doesn't have any friends
Cocaine and a little drunk driving
Doesn't matter, when you're the Commander in Chief.
Idiot son of an asshole
He's the idiot son of an asshole
Idiot son of an asshole
He's the idiot son of an asshole
(***not in the video version on The War On Errorism****
Put on some make-up, turn on the 8-Track,
I'm putting a week back on the shelf,
Suddenly I'm the President, of the United States,
But they I woke up, and realized I'm still me. )
He's too dumb, to eat pretzels, apparently smart enough to fix an election.
Moved boldly into the White House,
though most people voted against him.
He likes naps, He's good at naptime, A couple of naps and then a nap and then he's ready for
bed,
He may be from Bush decent, He's always gonna, gonna be the un-precedent
Idiot son of an asshole
He's the idiot son of an asshole
Idiot son of an asshole
He's the idiot son of an asshole
Idiot son of an asshole
He's the idiot son of an asshole
He's our president!
