Somewhere There Is A Poem In Me

Somewhere there is a Poem in me

Somewhere there is a poem in me
A poem I cannot myself see
This poem makes my life richer in Love
It is Holy words from G-d Above.

Somewhere there is a simple life

Somewhere there is a simple life and a world,
Transparent, warm and joyful. . .
There at evening a neighbor talks with a girl
Across the fence, and only the bees can hear
This most tender murmuring of all.

But we live ceremoniously and with difficulty
And we observe the rites of our bitter meetings,
When suddenly the reckless wind
Breaks off a sentence just begun -

But not for anything would we exchange this splendid
Granite city of fame and calamity,
The wide rivers of glistening ice,
The sunless, gloomy gardens,
And, barely audible, the Muse's voice.

How much can a mind take?

how much can a mind take up?
the whole universe
what you see and dont
all the time that has passed
a million million years
and more to spare

how much can a mind fill up?
the whole universe and beyond
what you see - and dont see
what there are in reality, dreams
....

There Is A Day When No Poem Can Come

THERE IS A DAY WHEN NO POEM CAN COME

There is a day when no poem can come
And there is another day
When all is poetry-
And inside one hears one’s own soul singing without end
And knows:
This is what one has been made for -
These words-
These sounds-
This depth of one’s own being
Far far far-
In a beauty greater than one can understand
Or know
How to be grateful to God for.

How Deep Can An Ignorance Get

I'm telling you...
I saw a five dollar bill.
When you were discussing,
The clarity of the sky.
And how that has not been seen,
In quite sometime.

We'll discuss that later.
Now go see if you can find someone,
With a rope or ladder or something.
Or find someone with a flashlight.
I know what I saw.
And I saw it from up there,
Where you are.

'How deep can an ignorance get? '

There you go getting philosophical.

'No one told you to jump down there,
Like a fool.'

Who are you calling a fool?
I've got more than five dollars in my wallet.
And I bet you can't say that?
Can you!

'You are right!
But who is asking who for the assistance? '

Its funny how

Its funny how hello is always accompanied with good-bye
Its funny how remembering good memories can make you cry
Its funny how forever never seems to really last
Its funny how much you'd lose if you forgot your past
Its funny how friends can just leave you when you're down
Its funny how when you need someone there never around
Its funny how people can change and think there so much betta
Its funny how many lies can be packed into one love letta
Its funny how people can forgive even tho they cant forget
Its funny how one night can catain of so much regret
Its funny how crazy and ironic life turns out to be
but the funniest part of all is that none of that seems funny to me

How Lovely Can Ignorance Be...

how can you ever see
what i am seeing?

the words are veils
the face remains hidden

do you remember my voice?
it is trembling

cascades of meaning
yet you can hold nothing

what i have seen
rushes my blood in the middle of my being

it is a tryst of myself to myself
that i try to capture in syllables

understanding makes you leave me
so i chose the reverse

i am not there
i am not what you think i am

i live on the other side of the river
and you do not know the vein going there

for years i will be silent
to understand myself more

i leave no trace
when the time comes you may see a footstep

a picture of a foot step
and you shall know what suffering did my foot have

it is over soon
i think, it is better that you shall not know

as you shall love me still
how lovely can ignorance be!

How Archaic Can They Be?

Only children not given attention,
Are out of control.
Spare the rod, spoil the child.
That's what I've always been told.

And the evidence of that,
Is not an assumption!
That's a fact.
A child undisciplined,
Will bring grief in the end.
And those doing their research through books,
Are the ones seen tearfully...
Expressing they've done what they thought it took,
To keep their children from becoming...
Liars, criminals and deceiving petty crooks.

How archaic can they be?
Wanting to whipped their children...
Into respectful human beings?

Only children not given attention,
Are out of control.
Spare the rod, spoil the child.
That's what I've always been told.

And still to this very day,
As the industry of incarceration...
Blooms to a boom without a bust,
There are those who are scholars...
Professing they know a way,
How a restoration of values and standards,
Will eliminate division and the onslaught of decay.
AND return the public's trust.
IF...
We all follow 'their' instructions,
Outlined in their bestselling books!

Instilling within us a more educated way...
To properly train our children to become,
The liars, criminals and deceiving petty crooks...
A decadent society has obviously become.
And with a price to pay.
That's the way it looks!

How archaic can they be?
Wanting to whipped their children...
Into respectful human beings?

Only children not given attention,
Are out of control.
Spare the rod, spoil the child.
That's what I've always been told.

How Pitiful Can a Pitiful People Get

How pitiful can a pitiful people get?
Not only those subjected to media empathy.
Observed and followed by those in sympathetic guilt.
But also those who deny a people of human rights.
Then fight to come to their aid...
When cameras are in sight!

'And...
ACTION!
Don't distort the getting down with the boogey.
Tears people.
Put those tears in those eyes.
Comeon...
We don't have that kind of a budget.'

'Re-activites' rush to scenes to show their concerns,
For those who have been depicted as historically needy.
Yet...
Those who are and have been pro-active,
Are usually given bureaucratic distance...
From collective elitists who are thieves of democracy.

Especially if it concerns people of color.

But to lay on their exotic beaches to tan is a priority!
Feeding their conservative 'standards' with a liberal dose of lotion.
On any island where they are treated as creatures of goodwill.

How pitiful can a pitiful people get?
Not only those subjected to media empathy.
Observed and followed by those in sympathetic guilt.
But also those who deny a people of human rights.
Then fight to come to their aid...
When cameras are in sight!

And then declare themselves righteous.
Be they Black, White, Mulatto or hues and blends...
From different Oriental shores!
With puffed up chests and resources they've hoarded!

Black folks who are colored,
Are 'religously' ignored.
Until...
There is a crisis to assist and depict,
One's sense of moral giving to those made dependent.
While those sanctimoniously incline split with theft riches!

*How on Earth can you say that?
We are here as missionaries! *

'And...
CUT!
Wonderful, wonderful.
That's a 'take'.
I even believed it!
Prepare for the next scene ladies and gentlemen.
And please,
We need more of a 'haggard' appearance for the upcoming visuals.
No need for fresh tan looks in the shoot!
Be ready in twenty minutes! '

The easiest songs to write are pure fiction. There is no limit to how you can tell the story. I find it difficult when I'm replaying an event through a song.

How Creative Can A Repetition Get

How creative,
Can a repetition get?
How innovative can a mindset become,
If that mindset is conditioned...
To follow the footsteps of everyone else.
And everyone else,
Is repetitious.
And suspicious of those,
With other wishes.

How single can a person become

How single can a person become
when love dies
and how without any cause
can things become,
when nothing matters anymore.

It is as if unhappiness
eats at every thing,
like a spreading cancer
and life is even rid
of all its pleasures.

When a deadly winter
slowly stalks everything
And your life is frozen.

How Long Can We Ride This Crazy Bus?

Put your nuclear reactors

and power plants on Mars,

Mars was ruined from all

of the wars.

Wars we had way

in the past..

Look at Planet Earth

do we have a chance?

Think of the future

and not of the greed

Today,

Maybe we might live

and be able to say,

We did this for our children,

and for us,

How long can we ride this

Dangerous crazy bus?

There Is More In Me Than Words Can Say

THERE IS MORE IN ME THAN WORLDS CAN SAY

There is more in me than worlds can say
More in you-
Yet in a world where so many so many things
And so much waits to be read
Who can really say
Something that means the Universe?
Even God has come to seem only one voice among many
On this discordant earth-
And we the children of so many silences
Cannot stop ourselves hearing and making our own sounds in the noise

Shifts

you shift from poetry
with regret you must
get into the ramifications
of the law of bread and
butter, you want to kill
time and just lay there,
the law, the law, how
dry can these laws be,
you gaze outside the
window, sighing, looking
to the blue sea and
feeling the breeze salty
to your brain, ahhh, it
is this salt of the earth,
talking. I shift my head
now to these lines,
i live for the moment.
now, back to what i
detest, this bread, this
butter, i too live here.

How Low Can a Low Blow Go?

How low can a low blow go?

'Are you still hopeful
For the return of the dollar per gallon,
Gasoline?
How about your taxes actually used
For your benefit and well being?
Remember the 'family values' slogan?
How about your quality of life,
Being restored...
Before you ignored its slide?
I would say,
Someone's in denial! '

I am still hopeful!

'Great!
I am sending down a life long supply
Of flashlight bulbs and batteries!
Keep trusting 'this' is going to turn around!
You've got a long way down to go!
Apparently...
The low blows are still coming.'

Consideration (Thought)

Its funny how people always tend to trip over there own feet.
Its funny how they can run into a sign, while walking down a street.
Its funny how putting mentos in your friends cola makes it foam.
Its funny how on Halloween you can go and T.P. someone's home.
Its funny how people jump when someone yells 'SURPRISE! '.
Its funny how many truths are backed upon lies.

There are a lot of 'funny' things people can do, but i bet they aren't as funny when people do them to you.

Care about others.
Think before you do.
And you will find out life,
will be much more fun, and enjoyable for you.

My Canadian Chronicles 22

Sometimes we go to places
to meet strangers
whom have come into our lives
never knowing what we might find.
We are moved by their kindness
and their giving up their time
to take us here and there
wondering all the time
how we can repay their generosity.
We can give them our friendship,
but never feeling that is enough.
We can only offer what we can give
which in our case is not much
always hoping one day
we can treat them to the world.
Forever we will link hands
across the oceans wide
hoping all the time they will visit us
and we can extend the same generosity
that they have shown to us.

How Dim Can a Wit Be?

In a world
Where those of 'progress'
Have benefitted
From lives eroding in degradation.
I am often amused by the ones
Who express moralistic values.
And sit in judgement of others...
While condoning the killing of those,
Whose shores are invaded
As others from distances...
Declare these intrusions,
As acts of common interests.

And yet professing how terrorists...
Are threatening lands they have taken,
To administer their own selfish greed!
And shunning those who too have rights...
Who wish to live as neighbors.
But condemned.
Because of the color of their skins!
How dim can a wit be?
And still profess,
A superiority!
Growing shamelessly denied.
With a guilt that is numbed...
And medically supplied!
