Leaders Of The Neighborhood

Why didn't they move on?
Accept reality for what it is.
Instead of paying ridiculous amounts of money,
To have their own homes torn down?

'Someone came around a few years ago,
With a plan to convince them...
If they threatened to do this,
The people would get the hint...
And beg them to stay.
To do whatever they wished in the neighborhood.'

Well...
Hopefully they have learned a lesson.

'Apparently not from what is being observed.
Because those very same people,
Have organized themselves.
To protest the others...
Until they are welcomed back.'

That is nonsense.
It is obvious the people,
Were delighted they did that.

'Nonsense?
That's crazy!
Now they are petitioning the local government,
And have begun an advertising campaign...
To enforce the people into believing,
Without their influence as leaders...
The entire neighborhood,
Would be a place no one would desire to live.'

It is amazing what people will do,
To inflict their delusions on others.

'I'm glad you said that.
But today?
Many more are seeing,
Who has been initiating the conflicts.'

If a conservative is a liberal who's been mugged, a liberal is a conservative who's been arrested.

Mary Lynn Rajskub

I told my agents that I didn't want to go on the audition. But as that was happening I called my mom, who has been watching the show from the beginning, and my mom said, 'It's the coolest show. You have to go.'

Out of Step

It is not what is said that makes people miserable.
It is ignoring what has been said...
And paying the consequences!
There is no dance partner,
For one accustomed to foxtrots
The jitterbug and tangos...
In a ballroom full of those waltzing!
Being out of step,
Will surely attract attention and regret!
The competitors these days...
Are light on their feet!
And expected to glide with the rhythm.

No One But You Has Been In My Dreams

But I am still mending.
Parts of me are not at peak.
Parts of me are still very weak.

'But it is you and all of you I seek.
Weakened or not,
You will return to your peak.'

Even if I am currently weak,
You would still want to be with me?

'What I see,
Has already strengthened me.
And you with me together,
Makes that oneness I seek,
That much more complete.'

But I am still mending.

'You will return to your peak.'

Even if I am currently weak?
You would still want to be with me?

'That may be hard for you to believe,
But not me!
You and I together makes that oneness I seek,
That much more complete.
You see yourself disabled.
To me you are my dream.'

No one has ever said that to me.

'And no one but you has been in my dreams.'

Eyes Open Have the Ability to See Through Concrete

Too much of it had been ignored.
And now a game played to catch up,
With reality is in full force...
By those seeking rules and regulations.
With something to limit full exposure,
That is easy to document and follow.

But truth and reality are not substitutes,
To be interchanged, exchanged or arranged by delusion.
Lies...yes!
Some perfected.
Deceit...yes!
Sometimes rejected.
But seldom suspected for what it is.

Charades and masquerades...
May be acceptable behind masks.
Truth pursued is strategic free.
And that task uncomfortable...
For the ones assigned to assist those blind!

And anyone who has been introduced to reality,
Becomes immediately aware of its focus.

Nothing about it is hidden behind veils!
Eyes open have the ability to see through concrete.
With penetrating results.

You Put Me Down To Marry Into Pain

I tried to tell you what I could do for you.
I tried to tell you that my love for you was true.
But,
What did you do?
You put me down to marry into pain.

I tried to tell you that my heart for you is pure.
I tried to tell you what I had for you was sure.
But,
You had been lured...
To put me down to marry into pain.

What makes you think I have waited,
For leftovers someone's claimed.
What makes you think that I've craved,
For a taste that's not the same...
From someone who has been changed.

What makes you think that I've waited,
For leftovers someone's claimed.
What makes you think that I've craved,
For a taste that's not the same...
Wet from sorrows soaked in shame.

I tried to tell you what I could do for you.
I tried to tell you that my love for you was true.
But,
What did you do?
You put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you,
But you put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you,
But you put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you...
But,
What did you do...?
You put me down to marry into pain.

Quatrain #506 - It is said that too much pride....

It is said that too much pride comes before a fall
no matter how big you are or even how small.
When pride or vanity make a conspicuous appearance
those in whom it is evident are stooped in ignorance.

Quatrain #457 - It is said that only pure Love.........

It is said that only pure Love can mend a broken heart
a heart by which love, being frustrated, has torn apart.
And everything then that Love can say or do
should heal all the wound if that Love be true.

and this can be in whatever situation comes our way.

It is said that the mother is closer to the child than the father
but it depends whom the child would prefer to be with rather.

sustaining the child with love and care which quenches its thirst.

Quatrain #507 - It is said that you can choose.....

It is said that you can choose your friends but not your relations
and the reasoning behind this is not really based on speculations.
The former is a situation which we can do something about
but the latter is a relationship we might like to do without.

Said That Cat

'Tsk, tsk, said that cat,
can't you see? Noone knows,
not you, not me'.

'My oh my, said that cat,
where do you go when the day dies?
Climb on the roof and watch the moon rise'.

'Ask, ask, said that cat,
find out what the chatter is all about
get an answer to your question, but
start at the beginning'.

'Hmm, hmm, said that cat,
I think you may be right, it's best
to sneak upon the night
without a sound, without a noise
quiet as a mouse might.'

Tsk, tsk, said that cat,
but he won't tell me where it's at.

Emily Dickinson

You said that I

You said that I "was Great"—one Day—
Then "Great" it be—if that please Thee—
Or Small—or any size at all—
Nay—I'm the size suit Thee—

Tall—like the Stag—would that?
Or lower—like the Wren—
Or other heights of Other Ones
I've seen?

Tell which—it's dull to guess—
And I must be Rhinoceros
Or Mouse—
At once—for Thee—

So say—if Queen it be—
Or Page—please Thee—
I'm that—or nought—
Or other thing—if other thing there be—
With just this Stipulus—
I suit Thee—

He said that everyone will have a house

(after Ena Murray)

He said that everyone will have a house
who believe in Him and in His words
and keenly I want to live in a place,
even if I stumble in my inability.
A place where it's always summer,
where a garden stretches out for hectares,
where all of my animals, now missing to death,
will move in with me,
where one day I would pick
rose on rose or any other flower
and even if at times you blush,
I would embrace you nurturing
and still I wonder
if I would also admire you there?

[Reference: "Roosknop vir ‘n engel" ("Rosebud for an angel") by Ena Murray.]

You said that you'd call me!

Don't hate me for caring
Don't tear me apart
I'm lost without you
Please don't break my heart

You said that you'd call me
But my phone hasn't rung
Now the radio's playing
Our song that you sung

My world isn't worth it
Without you by my side
The pains getting worse
But i have to bide by the time

You said that you'd call me
But my phone hasn't rung
Now the radio's playing
Our song that you sung

Everything reminds me of you
I'm scared of never seeing your face again
Your eyes
Your smile
Your lips

Or hearing you speak
Or hearing you laugh
Even hearing you cry
I need you
Here
Here by my side

You said that you'd call me
But my phone hasn't rung
Now the radio's playing
Our song that you sung

Who Said That First?

'I'm going to say something foolish! '

YOU?
That's impossible.

'Seriously.
Why don't you listen to me sometimes.
Instead of acting as if you know so much.
Can't you at least 'pretend',
You are paying me 'some' attention? '

I'll do the best I can.
And...
Get set.
On your mark!
GO.

'Why are you giving me that look? '
Comeon.
Be serious.
Can't you be serious?
At least this one time.
Stop giving me that blank look.
That wide eyed stare.
Comeon...
Stop it! '

Well...
I 'tried to pay you 'some' attention.
That didn't work.
And then I tried to pretend,
I had amnesia.
That didn't work either.
Let's see...
That's about...
Three minutes total time.
You need more time than that?

'This is going nowhere! '

And 'who' said that first?
Didn't I tell you that?

So Happy I Am 'You' Said That

I am not one to pass judgement, normally!
And those who do pass it with wild abandonment,
With a disregarding done of specific rules...
Disengaged from using practical 'sensitivities'.
I offer my judgement to pass on this topic...
The Art Of Effective Parenting.

'If a child is disobedient and disrespecting enough,
To cause headaches and problems intentionally.
AND runs away from home at a young age.
Gone for two years.
Only to be recently reported missing.
BUT...
Had been discovered using a false identity,
In a foreign country.
To have done this illegally.

And that child now cries with regret.
But that country she has been deported to,
Has restricted her activities.
And no sympathy from them does she get.
WHO should bear the brunt of the blame?

'Anyone who claims to be held accountable,
For her actions.'

Well...
That is not going to happen.

'Then this is a clear reflection on the parenting.
Often left to be excused.'

So happy I am 'you' said that.

The Lord said that the “I” in you is really me

The me in me is quite troublesome
And I know all the problems
I face is because this me
It has been a longing desire of mine
To get rid of this me

I said one day to Krishna
Let all my prayers I have offered to you
Help me getting a grant from you
Krishna said
Say that and it will be granted based on its merit

Krishna, I need only one thing
I do not require anything materialistic
My requirement is you yourself
I request you to occupy me
Totally vacating “me” from me
And you will take care of
Everything happening around me

Krishna did not answer
But, said
Hold on, your demand is quite on the higher side
Anyway I will consider it
Presently I am occupying someone else
And so I am not free to move into thee

Turning curious, I asked Krishna
Who is he and where is he?

Krishna made a smile
Did not answer and vanished

Days, weeks, months, years went by
I have been talking to Krishna all through
But I did not hear him saying a thing

The other day
I did call on Krishna
And renewed my demand
This time Krishna responded
Hi do you not know
That I have already occupied you
And I only am running things around you

Krishna, is it true?
I am not able to realize so
Things seem to have changed
I feel the same way as I used to feel earlier
I talk the same way as I used to talk earlier
I perform things the same way I used to perform earlier
I get saddened or gladdened the same way I used to get earlier
No change at all
I cannot believe what you say

A smiling Krishna said
I know you are going to say that
Now you renew your prayers
Requesting me to grant you this knowledge
Lord further said
That the “I” in you is really me
Once you land upon this realization
I will move on to another person
Who is waiting for my occupation

Tis said, that some have died for love

'Tis said, that some have died for love:
And here and there a churchyard grave is found
In the cold north's unhallowed ground,
Because the wretched man himself had slain,
His love was such a grievous pain.
And there is one whom I five years have known;
He dwells alone
Upon Helvellyn's side:
He loved--the pretty Barbara died;
And thus he makes his moan:
Three years had Barbara in her grave been laid
When thus his moan he made:

'Oh, move, thou Cottage, from behind that oak!
Or let the aged tree uprooted lie,
That in some other way yon smoke
May mount into the sky!
The clouds pass on; they from the heavens depart.
I look--the sky is empty space;
I know not what I trace;
But when I cease to look, my hand is on my heart.

'Oh! what a weight is in these shades! Ye leaves,
That murmur once so dear, when will it cease?
Your sound my heart of rest bereaves,
It robs my heart of peace.
Thou Thrush, that singest loud--and loud and free,
Into yon row of willows flit,
Upon that alder sit;
Or sing another song, or choose another tree.

'Roll back, sweet Rill! back to thy mountain-bounds,
And there for ever be thy waters chained!
For thou dost haunt the air with sounds
That cannot be sustained;
If still beneath that pine-tree's ragged bough
Headlong yon waterfall must come,
Oh let it then be dumb!
Be anything, sweet Rill, but that which thou art now.

'Thou Eglantine, so bright with sunny showers,
Proud as a rainbow spanning half the vale,
Thou one fair shrub, oh! shed thy flowers,
And stir not in the gale.
For thus to see thee nodding in the air,
To see thy arch thus stretch and bend,
Thus rise and thus descend,--
Disturbs me till the sight is more than I can dear.'

The Man who makes this feverish complaint
Is one of giant stature, who could dance
Equipped from head to foot in iron mail.
Ah gentle Love! if ever thought was thine
To store up kindred hours for me, thy face
Turn from me, gentle Love! nor let me walk
Within the sound of Emma's voice, nor know
Such happiness as I have known to-day.
