It's not my job to be popular. I'm goal-driven; my job is to get results.

A ship need not be sunk

A ship need not be sunk
To reach the shore

A life need not be spoiled
To become popular

Not to lay on road with tears
To garner the sympathy

Not to meet the tragic death
If love is failed

Not to blame nature
When we prove immature

Dice is not God’s game.

‘God does not play with dice.’
Whether you turn wise or a vice,
Whether you lure Him with praise
He will not play you with dice.
Who is just? Who is worth? -
He is not afflicted with.
Reward and punishment is not his job.
Your birth and death are alike.
So are your ups and downs, mind.
The game of dice, you devised,
Where he has no part to play.

Do not Judge me (First Poem Submitted)

As I stand before you
with the reality of the shame of my sins in my arms.
Do not judge me.
You do not know me.
You do not know the pains I have suffered,
As you look at me like I am a demon from the pits of Hell.
Do not judge me.
You do not know me.
Picture youself alone as I, needing the comfort and touch of another.
Would you not do the same?
Do not judge me.
You do not know me.
And my child has already been marked like a person with the plague.
Not given a chance,
Do not judge him,
You do not know him.
We all have sinned and it is not our job to judge,
So do not judge me.
You do not know me.

(I wrote this after watching Scarlett Letter)

That's The Way To Do It (aka Odd Job Man)

Now I've been here and I've been there
And I've been almost everywhere
There's not a thing I can't repair
Cos I'm Stan, Yes I am
The odd job man
I'm a tradesman, I know all the tricks
There's not a thing that I cannot fix
Beginners use my concrete mix
I'm Stan yes I am, The odd job man
Well, thats the way to do it
Just be as quick as a flash
Don't hang about
Just in and out
And always ask for cash
Any job that you want done
Phone me up cos Im the one
Electrical, plumbing, woodwork too
I'll do the job that's right for you
Well, that's the way to do it
Just be as quick as a flash
Don't hang about
Just in and out
And always ask for cash
I've never done the same job twice
Listen to me take my advice
I'll double the work for half the price
The finished job will look, look nice
I've been around and had some fun
There's not a job that I've not done
No unemployment where I'm from
Jack of all trades, master of none

To Thy Self be True

Loving thoughts live forever
Customize your mind
Centered in symmetric joy
The moon lights the temple
Love is in every night sky
No one is better or worse
Everyman is Christ
Everyman is whom he died for
Pettiness is garbage
Every candle goes out
All this pride on top of dust
We occupy ourselves with triteness
With little tragic games
I am the guiltiest
It is so easy to try to be accepted
Pointing fingers does nothing
Changing others is not my job
Dealing with myself is my job
Dealing with others is Gods buisness

Serene Bach plays in the background
Man he was a giant
He sure thought some sweet thoughts
Social incest gobbles people up
Thinking other peoples thoughts
People pleasing, kissing ass
Clicks are not love
I see allot of my art is sham
Here and there something real gets out
I love Gods creation
When I reflect that something true happens
Grudges and proving points only diminishes
Wasting time putting things in categories
Thinking the mundane
Writing profound is totally individual
Like Emily Dickinson
Her poetry was seen after her death
She didn't write to be popular
Real art is never before the crowd

To thy self be true is harder than you think

Bible Stories: Job (Chapter XXXII)

To answer Job, the three men ceased;
Their arguments hadn’t Job appeased;
Kindled was Elihu’s anger;
Jobs views had gone a bit stranger.

Job staunchly said that he was right;
He proved it all in his own light;
Could man be right and God be wrong?
Yet, conclude one must any song!

The three had not convinced Job well;
‘Wrong was his stance, ’ they could not tell;
The three were older but got tamed;
Elihu’s wrath became inflamed.

The son of Barachel then said,
Im young and you are an old head;
And so, I was afraid to speak
And share my views, with you, all meek;

Your years should have taught you wisdom;
But God has given you freedom;
The breath of God (man’s spirit) gives
Understanding, by which he lives.

’Tis not that days can make one wise;
’Tis not that man is free of vice;
Nor aged understand what’s right;
So, heed to what I say: See light!

I heard your arguments so far,
And conclusion of your word-war;
I followed all who spoke with care;
To convince Job, no one did dare!

None could refute what Job had said;
Don’t say we’ve met a wisdom-head;
Had he addressed his words to me,
I would have spoken differently

Now that you’ve spoken for your part,
I wish to open up my heart;
I want to speak a lot of things,
So, let me say what my heart brings!

My spirit compels from within,
Like pressure from anew wineskin;
Im on verge of bursting out,
Let me hence speak and clear your doubt.

I won’t be partial to someone,
And neither will I flatter one;
And if I did, I know my God
Will take my life away by rod!

The media is absolutely essential to the functioning of a democracy. It's not our job to cozy up to power. We're supposed to be the check and balance on government.
