There Are Pains Beyond The Healing Of Poetry

THERE ARE PAINS BEYOND THE HEALING OF POETRY

There are pains beyond the healing of poetry-
Life’s wounds can be deeper than any helping song or thought-
A life can fail
And go into the ground
With all its cries unanswered.
Who are we to know why we suffer so sometimes?
Perhaps we deserve it,
Perhaps we do not.

In The World Of Poetry

in the world of poetry
where doves and shadows reign
i will be there with all of you

i will bring no book
i will only bring my own nakedness
i will be empty
and then i will be full

There Are Moments

There are moments
In the reservoir of life
When the hours become twisted
And slowly drown in infinity.

There are moments
When traveling through
The unending highway of destiny,
One feels like wasted in a bin of time.

There are moments
When the mind is trapped
In the tunnel of forgetfulness
While words become muted
And the fragile body motionless.

there are moments
When you feel like in a vessel
Caught on fire and capsizing
In the middle of the sea
Sadly knowing
There is not help at all.

There are moments
When facts are unknown
Why or what has happened
In the urgency of self-preservation
And the only help is oneself alone
In the rescue of the senses-flammable
Until oppositely charged
By expulsion or exposition.

Knowing the vessel was capsizing
and that the only sailor was me,
I found the way to stay afloat
Along with an invisible friend named Hope
Who gave me strength to keep on going
Until reaching the solid ground
Thank you, my Lord!
For no abandoning me
In this tumultuous journey!

There Are Times/ When The Poetry Of The Poem

THERE ARE TIMES/ WHEN THE POETRY OF THE POEM

There are times
When the poetry of the poem,
And the poetry of the poet
Are poetry.

But there are too times
When the poetry of the poet
And the poetry of the poem
Are not poetry.

There are times
When all the poetry,
And all the poets in the universe
Do not make the world a poem.

There Are, They Say, More Writers Of Poetry

THERE ARE, THEY SAY, MORE WRITERS OF POETRY

There are, they say, more writers of poetry
Than readers-

So we write and write and write,
Another poem and another poem-

And the world goes on without us.

Why Is There Such Sadness In The World?

WHY IS THERE SUCH SADNESS IN THE WORLD?

Why is there such sadness in the world?
Why is there so much sadness in me?
Twilight is sad its true
But I just wished Happy New Year
To a man who will probably die this year
I am just an old fool
With so many fears
But the Sadness
And its causes
Are real too much-

There Are So Many Ways Of Making Poetry

THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS OF MAKING POETRY

There are many ways of making Poetry
Some make poetry simply
As I do –
Others are richer by far.
Some like the surface
And others like hidden depths and mysteries.
There are many ways of making poetry
I have only one which is my own
But there are so so many others
More beautiful and deep and perhaps more everlasting.

There Are Times When Only By Hearing The Poems Of Others

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN ONLY BY HEARING THE POEMS OF OTHERS

There are times when only by hearing the poems of others,
Can one begin to write one’s own-
One needs the rhythm of poetry
And once one has it
One can perhaps begin.

This morning I have not listened to anyone else-
And I write these lines
Into the bare space of the page
With a tremor of doubt
At whether they arepoetry’.

I hear myself as a poem
But what others hear
May be something else entirely-

If I Ruled The World

If I ruled the world,
many changes I would make.
It would be required
that happiness shone
from everyone’s eyes,
not hate or oppression.

If I ruled the world,
I would require
everyone to love each other
as a sister or a brother
and care for those suffering
from the pains of illness.

If I ruled the world,
I would want it to be
a happier and more loving place
of lasting peace.
There would be no wars,
no hurt in anyone’s life.
Life would be long
and held with respect.

If I ruled the world
this is what I would require,
but sadly I do not
and my dreams are just dreams
of a place we call tranquillity.

However, if I ruled the world
I would try to make tranquillity
into our own reality.

The World Where I Belong

OOH THE WORLD MY SOUL HAVE LOVED TO BE

THE WORLD WHERE MY SOUL SOLD

THE WORLD MY SOUL SAW

THE WORLD WHERE MY SOUL SPEAKS SPEECHES

OF WISDOM

OF INSPIRATION TO INFLUENCE OTHER SOULS.

THIS IS THE WORLD WHERE THERE ARE NO ANY

DISCRIMINATIVE ANTAGONIST IS WHERE I BELONG.

I HAVE LOVED THIS WORLD AND SO PASSIONATE ABOUT IT

I CAN CONTINUE TO SPEAK ALL ABOUT THIS WORLD WITHOUT

COMING TO AN END, FOR I HAVE GOT A LOT TO SPEAK ABOUT THIS WORLD.

AM SPEAKING MY REASON FOR LOVING THIS WORLD, BUT NOT MAKING A RIDDLE.

ALL I THINK O F IS ABOUT THIS WORLD,

ALL I SPEAK IS ALL ABOUT THIS WORLD,

ALL I WISH TO LEAVE FOR, IS ABOUT THIS WORLD

INDEED IT HAS BEEN AND WILL FOREVER BE

A WORLD OF GREAT LEGENDS

THE WORLD I BELONG TO IS NO OTHER,

BUT THE WORLD OF POETRY.

I LOVE POETRY.

The World's One Hundred Wealthiest

The World's many billion people controlled by the greedy few
But to every billionaire there is there are a million who
Go to sleep weak and hungry their wasted bodies thin
For days they have not eaten their bones showing through
their skin.

The world's one hundred wealthiest people their names published today
And yet the poor grow poorer it has always been this way
And the social gap keeps widening and with it inequality
And not far from where the wealthy live there's want and poverty.

Not far from where the wealthy live you see social decay
The slums that reek of poverty the buildings old and gray
The sad faced mother of the slums her kids out of control
Her husband in jail for larceny and she is on the dole.

Of the world's one hundred wealthiest people why should I wish to know?
When poverty is rampant and the numbers of the hungry grow
If the world's wealthiest person Bill Gates fed the hungry of Sudan
I too would sing his praises and I'd say what a man.

The world's weaalthiest people their names published today
But not too far from where they live there is social decay
And that they are worth billions show how greedy they must be
When millions of poor people must live in poverty.

Women of the world (english)

We men know only one thing.
What is it that we want? We want a woman!
And it all ends there; we don't know how to get you,
Where to find you and what to do to please you?

And when we do, we still do not understand you completely.
We do not know what to say and when to say it.
Nor do we know how to keep that spark lost in the storm.
If anyone knows this, he is truly a wise and lucky man.

Women of the world,
never be discouraged you've not found love.
There's always someone who does,
they're just too shy and scared to let you know, in their own way.

Women of the world,
there is beauty within each one of you.
It takes the right man to find it, to bring it out.
Just like the way a key opens a lock.

Women of the world,
Every where you go, you turn heads twice.
Not as objects of desire,
but as a unique display of beauty, different from the other.

Women of the world,
there are many secretly admiring you.
Hiding and thinking about you,
but you somehow have a way of making them known.

Women of the world,
for you, they sell flowers so colourful and sweet smelling.
They’re a reminder, to thank you for being a part of their world,
not a comparison to the subtlety you hold.

Women of the world,
for you communication goes beyond its abilities.
There’s just no stopping, to get what we get from you,
that certain happiness when you acknowledge and thank us.

Women of the world,
you're the reason men be men.
You’re the hope to know they aren't alone amongst a crowd.
You're the lines on his palm that tells him,
he's the man he wants to be.

Women of the world,
when you look into a man's eyes,
do you see what he gets from you?
Because what you see is what you get.

Women of the world,
be patient with the one in love with you.
It takes him time to understand you well.
You’re not as easy to please as we thought it would.

Women of the world,
Love the man for being so patient with you.
It's hard to put all the pieces of what we think, is a puzzle.
He tries all ways, sometimes even the wrong ways
to tell you, that you're understood.
Be proud, he has tried and tries again.

Women of the world,
for you, there is sadness in a man's heart.
For you he weeps, losing you once,
for you he's in misery, losing you again.

Women of the world,
Every where there is beauty, there is a heart pleased.
For you, the strongest men become as soft as a kiss.
Knowing they can run, back into your arms.

Women of the world,
You’re the one that holds the fruit of tomorrow.
For their smile and walk will be yours,
to carry on what you have taught them.

Women of the world,
there is no greater worldly love we get from you,
than that which comes from within.
It's priceless, but more importantly, a precious gift.

Women of the world,
remember every time you do something,
you're leaving a thought of kindness and compassion,
in a person's life that needs it.

Women of the world,
you're the reason wonderful stories exist.
Also, the reasons most stories have an ending.
You're a gift From the Almighty, to be our companion.
The purpose there’s gaps between our fingers.

Women of the world,
you're the reason a man leaves his mother and father,
to be united with you and become one.
Because of you we fall into deep sleep.

Woman of the world,
If you did not exist, I’m sure all men
would’ve ended up in hell.
Help us to know and love you more.

Women of the world,
For each one of you I dedicate this poem,
I have learned more just by knowing you,
Yet, I know so little.

-Lloydoftherings

Wanna Make A Change In The World

This is something.
Something I've wanted to do,
for such a long time.

I wanna make a change.
A change in the world.
Through the words of my poetry.

Just knowing that I could,
make a change in the world,
in a person life,
would just mean the world to me.

It's something I've always wanted to do.
Something I need to do.
I will not give up.

For I wanna make a change.
A change in this world.

Love Can Change The World

Love has no definition.
There is no explanation or reason.
It's just an opinion.
One opinion may not change the world,
But it can change one person.
Sometimes when one person has an opinion
Others listen
And many are influenced by that one person.
One opinion can't change the world.
But one person-one man DID.
With love Jesus gave himself
For humanity's shortcomings.
The world felt the power of one person.
Love CAN change the world
If we let it.

You Mean the World To Me

If you could give me one good reason
Why I should believe you
Believe in all the things that you tell
I would sure like to believe you
My heart wants to receive you
Just make me know that you are sincere
You know I'd love for you to lead me
And follow thru completely
So won't you give me all I ask for
And if you give your very best
To bring me happiness
I'll show you just how much I adore you

Cause you mean the world to me
You are my everything
I swear the only thing that matters
Matters to me
Oh baby

You Live In The World's Wonderland

You live in the world's wonderland
You are a queen on the moon's sand
Come down to my dear motherland
I want to touch your tender hand

I know baby you are out there
I want to touch your golden hair
Will you become so near and dear?
True love has got no place for fear

I know you look really nice
I want to stare at your blue eyes
I will knock out the other guys
If they want to ask for your price

The world is at your fingertips
I want to kiss your painted lips
I want to taste love's all the sips
Babe will you make busy my hips?

Half The World Away

I would like to leave this city
This old town don't smell too pretty and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And when I leave this island I'll book myself into a soul asylum
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
So here I go still scratching around the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind is very old
So what do you say?
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You're half the world away
Half the world away
Half the world away
I've been lost I've been found but I don't feel down.

And when I leave this planet

We Are Here To Change The World

(from captain eo)
Were on a mission
In the everlasting light that shines
A revelation
Of the truth in chapters of our minds
So long, bad times
Were gonna shake it up and break it up
Were sharing light brighter than the sun
Hello , good times
Were here to simulate, eliminate
An congregate, illuminate
(we are here to change the world)
Gonna change the world, hee
(we are here to change the world)
Gonna change the world, ooo
So do surrender
cause the powers deep inside my soul
Sing it
(we are here to change the world)
Gonna change the world, sing it
(we are here to change the world)
Hee, gonna change the world, ooo
(we are here to change the world)
Were gonna change the world, girl
(we are here to change the world)
My brothers my brother na
Were gonna change the world
(we are here to change the world)
Hee, deep down in my body,
Deep down in my soul, baby
(we are here to change the world)
Hee, were gonna change the world,
Ooo

Me Against The World

Its me against the world yupp its me against the world.Surrounded my the hatred, fakers and the pretenders. Surrounded by the people i call family and some i that i classify as friends but

really its just me against the world.Yea, we all know that we bitch around sometimes get drunk and make some dumb mistake.Yea its just me against the world, lets see who's gonna lose not until i die yupp its

me against the world.Giving up isnt an option so tell me whats there to lose. Stressing

myself over the earthly things isn't gonna get me any where but yea its just me against the world. In my coffin that's when i have lost the fight its just me against the world.Whats there to lose, my dignity? ? ? my pride? ? ? yea i lost those when i remember

that its just me against the world. Yea i know crying has taken me away from all the pressure and the pain.Pills stuffed in my mouth looking at a class of water getting ready to swollow it. Shit i was about commit suicide but no i'm not ready to give up cause this is a test and its me against the world. Follow my lead no i'm only an out cast an out law doing me and trying to do me and only me. A gun to my head but as soon as i pull the glock it was like it was lock shit its me against the world. I need you to come save me cause my wings are broken and i'm falling apart.Its me against the world but, Not because its me against the world i'm great at the fight.Its me against the world and the world against me. Screaming for help but shit how could i forget its just me against the world and the world against me.

How The World Will End

The world will end, when its least expected
When the days grow numb as dull November
Drifting sagged cardboard from silhouettes of heaven
As every face becomes a portrait of its own grave
A masque medicated to professional wake
Living day by day for the cuckoo disbursement
Regulated by numbers in scheduled hours
Collapsing our faith in the alley of bones
Where we are set free to one day roam


The world will end, without a goodbye
It will fade in a whimper without a big bang
Like water tip toeing on an unassuming stone
Parched penetrating the sewage of rusted charcoal
Yes the world will end the world will end
Counting down the grains of an hour glass eye
When there is less of a future and more of a past
Staring behind flesh of disintegrating glass

Because someone neglected tell you things have now past


The world will end when you don't see it end
With larks still singing and the June bugs fly
And there's still a cool breeze from a blue canopy
But then something rises and tastes all to biter
And you examine your life to see what remains
Is now a series of moments divided by events
Inexplicably sorted between this one and next
Becoming an albatross wreathed as a lapel


The world will end, every moment of your existence
When every day you rise without knowing yourself
And you feel yourself sliding into apathies door
Superfluous sad neglecting to a role of stale urine
As you realize each day grows tedium with yearning
While your breathings compelled to concrete mold
You look at the morning of sunlight's gold arrows
And bury yourself between the sheets of your friends

Because you now realize this is the world's end
