The World I Would Like

Into the world i would like does not exist many things that we face today
there is no nationality... we are all citizen of earth
there is no ethnic group... we are all of human race
there is no greed, money maybe. It's not the problem
there is no hunger, because as Gandhi said there are resources for all
may look like not enough only becasue of the greed of someone
there is no war... because one only very small army represents all the world
no more deaths from preventable diseases, because the treatment is
immediately available to everyone without having to wait for the
expiry of the patent to lower costs
no more parties, but every day everyone vote and discuss general
guidelines and policies on..
there are no longer selfishness, the good is only that of all.
We consider the universal good and was happy to serve, not to be served

Television Is Not Your Friend (Television)

Television is hypnotic and addictive
You become mezmorized and hypnotized
Your TV manufactured from pixels of
Red, green and blue
It flickers high rates of speed
You're bombarded with
Fast moving electrons
It siezes your brain away from you
These subliminal waves seal your eyes
Transmitting cerebellum broadcasts
That decieve
you get an epilectic-type reaction
This high rate of TV flashes
Effects the mind
You become reposed
And there's less brain activity
You're not wrecked by visible rays
But invisible radiation
'It's the best control mechanism
You can think of '
Quoted of why television
Is furnished in a prison
Your intellect responds to what the screen displays
You'r not alive, you are dead
You fail to keep in touch with your body
You intellect eventually will play
It's never percieved at an ordinary plane of awareness
Therefore, the viewer assume truth is in the television
It's initiated in your childhood
parents seat the child in front of this evilness
Exploiting their minds in their early existence
Tuned into the cartoons
Cartoons becomes their reality
Some of the cartoons brings forth violence
Characters recieve wallops upon their flesh
A breif time following they seem to be intact
Soon after, on the playground, it's acted out
Parents pondering where it's attained from
Kids confused why it won't function on themselves
These kids seated staring entranced upon the couch
Violence, sex, hatred, fear and clichés
It's what they respire me to speculate about
With my feeble mind viewing excessively
Upon the tube
Cemented upon this TV continuously
Wasting my life
This is what they desire to regulate me
Once caught, all things that isn't I concieve as true
Poison disperse from this TV set
Emits into my veins
This slime taints upon ideas of mine
Effecting what I consume
So I'd buy, buy, buy, buy, buy
I remain in line
Not recognizing their crime
Now multitude of channels
Surfing through, until something appeals to me
Spending useless hours
To stumble upon what I like
Once drawn in, soaked in these transmitted rays
I'm too week to depart, I'm asleep
The media dangles the bait
I bite, they reel me in their master plan
Television is their poisonous weapon
I'm entranced by this electronic device
It makes me hate
obessed with the love of it, it produces greed
Obessed with thirst, perverts me to a sexual drive
This box entices
Merely observe what they desire me to
They never introduce me to the truth
So I accept their infectious lies
Camouflaging the realism I'm not suppose to know
I only view fairy tales
What actually occures is skillfully disguised
Extremely wrapped-up in their decietful cleverness
These images dictates my point of view
Programmed a slave to this TV
They coerce me to believe they're God
And the president is their Messiah
Playing into their hold
I'm not free, not awake
Asleep I allow myself to be
Asleep in their fancy for their entertainment
I'm longing for their inducing treat
Permitting them to feed me inventive tales
Glued to the television as if we're as one
Eating hungerly, this diversions that are sweet
This blindness is building my ignorance
I now know television is not my friend
It's a friend to the corporate media
Whom entices me to view their views
I'm no longer long to be a permanent zombie
I require to be released out of this hysteria
Each brain is like no other in the world
With TV, my brain's operation system lay dorment
It rely on the senses to install information
Absorbing information through their senses
Processing this in a way that's unique
I shouldn't be forced to have faith in their creation
I desire my own mind back that they have stolen
On a silver platter
I no longer desire to be a slave
I desire to terminate this addiction
Need not to exist with no reality
This is not what I desire to crave
Need to eradicate this TV set
This drug is sabotaging my conscious
Desire knowledge of the reality that's around
Need to expel this poisonous media box
Desire to think for myself, massacre my TV
Then my intellect will be found
Television is not your friend
It will offend
Need my mind and soul to mend
My thoughts i desire to apprehend
Television is not your friend
Into depravity my mentality descends
Need to wake, have my spirit ascend
My mind I must defend
Sleep no more
Need not to be owned by TV
Open my mind, awake from this tragedy

I Love You Because....

I love you because
that's what my heart says
and not because
of what you can offer me.

I Love You Because

I don’t love you because
You can make me laugh
But when you’re with me
When I cry hard enough

I don’t love you because
You make me stand tall
I love you because
You catch me when I fall

I don’t love you because
You’re always with me
But because when a space I need
You spare it with me

I Love You Because

(words & music by l. payne)
I love you because you understand dear
Every single thing I try to do.
Youre always there to lend a helping hand, dear.
I love you most of all because youre you.
No matter what the world may say about me,
I know your love will always see me through.
I love you for the way you never doubt me.
But most of all I love you cause youre you.
I love you because, because my heart is ligther
Honey everytime, everytime Im walking by your side
And I love you, yes I love you because the future is a little bit brighter
And the door, the door of my happiness, you open wide
No matter what may be the style or season,
I know your heart will always be true.
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons,
But most of all I love you cause youre you.

I Love You Because

I love you because
Of your long frog toes,
Your strong and gentle body,
Your great personality,
Your angelic smile,
Your classic style,
Your determination to succeed,
Your ability to lead,
Your soft and spongy mouth
And your contagious laugh.
The attributes that I don’t like
About you are not important
I only focus on what’s relevant
And not on the petty peas that I dislike.
I recognize that you are not perfect
However, I can attest that you are correct.

I love you for other unbeknown reasons,
For being all year long
My spring and summer seasons,
And for playing my song,
When I am not too happy,
About the ups and downs
Of the daily peripeties.
I purchased two crowns
To revere two of your best qualities:
Your modesty and your honesty.
Thank you for being my flashlight,
I hope that you are at peace tonight.

I Love You, Because Of You

Whensoever I have time to ponder, I ponder of thee;
Whensoever I've cause to wonder, I wonder of thee;
You are my past, present and future-my love, ever-lasting;
You are found everywhere, even in places most contrasting!
Time and space removed from thee mean naught,
An Angel in my mind and heart, consumes my thought! !

Sikerly, my beloved, you are here with me as I sleep
And when awake-my heart's promise, abiding, I do keep!
Our's is not a love wherest a measure could even be kept,
Our's is a love, sans pareil, whose sempiternity, we must accept!

To say, 'I love you, because of you'-I make it as simple as I may-
It is really that elegant, and becomes more so, every day!

For me, you are omnipresent-you are everywhere:
You are the most brilliant sunset, with it's Empyrean glare,
Whose rays breath life into you, whilst it keeps you warm;
In the billowy clouds, I am reminded of your feminine form;
The sounds of birds, lovely as they may certainly be,
Cause remind of your Angelic voice and what you mean to me!

Thunder and lightning remind me of love's unbridled power;
Your's frightens me to death, yet, I grow closer to you every hour!
Trees, fancifully flowing in the wind, mimic our interdependence;
I am in awe of our love's unprecendented transcendence!

Snow flakes caress my face, as softly as I imagine you would;
The gentle drizzle of rain calms me, as I imagine you could!
Flowers, in full bloom, remind me of our love's blossom, perpetual-
Should I even want not to be reminded of same, it is ineffectual!

Though you are now not near to me, you 'walk' beside me-
All the while-to love, honor and always to guide me!

Maurice Harris,2 February 2010

Pablo Neruda

Sonnet XVII: I do not love you as if you were brine-rose, topaz

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

Prayer to a Pillar of Fire

The television does not talk to me nor you
I turn it off but
You I can not turn off.
You whisper to me in tones
The world will not hear
I listen
I fear
and I pray to you
Great silent and expanding space of the Universe.

Jacques Lacan

There is no support for love… as I have told you: to give one’s love, is very precisely and essentially to give as such nothing of what one has, because it is precisely in so far as one does not have it that there is a question of love.

I Love God/For The Beauty Of The World

I love God
For the Beauty of the world-
For the people I care for in my life-
For so much Blessing -

But what of the the hole in the ground?
The distant cold at the end of everything?
The injustices the evils
They are God's too-

I love God for the blessings
But what of the evils?

A prodigal

My heart forgot its God for love of you,
And you forgot me, other loves to learn;
Now through a wilderness of thorn and rue
Back to my God I turn.

And just because my God forgets the past,
And in forgetting does not ask to know
Why I once left His arms for yours, at last
Back to my God I go.

Love has no boundaries

Love has no boundaries.
Love is great, mighty.
Love fears nothing.
Love struggle, love conquers.
Love is willing to cancel his own person
rather than lose what he loves.
But love knows no half measures.
Love has no middle ground.
Love is not doubt.
Love exists or does not exist!
Love does not admit 'I do not know if I love! '
If there is doubt, there is no love!

Love Does Not Keep To Seasons

Love does not keep to seasons,
is not caught by days, by months or by time
and where it really is true
not even death can lock it down.

Even when age wrecks features,
when money dwindles away,
love has the capacity
to still stay true,

still sees through the eyes
that in youth found beauty and sincerity
has a link to the divine,
and in all of this I want you to be mine.

Unknown Love

A kiss is just a kiss without meaning.
A touch does not exist, without feeling.
A look is just a look, a glance is just a glance without a smile.
What kind of love is this, if I can not hold you?
What kind of love is this, if I can not touch you?
What kind of love is trapped and in prisoned by a band of gold?
A deep desire for love can never be shown.
This love will never be known.

Classic Love

Our love is classic it flow
right through our vein then
find it place in our brain, it
intoxicate us. Sweeter than
honey, stronger than wine.
Planted on trust, devotion and
care, so high that they can't
touch us.Bound together like
butterflies in erotic scene,
precious as music, fresh as
the morning dew.The word
hurt does not exist here, up
or down you stick with me
our love is priceless, it is
classic.

Hate Works But Love Does Not

I have seen the love
In the eyes around me
Caring and hugging my feelings
As the root of the tress
I know the warmness of the arms
The soft touch of the palms
But love is lazy and lethargic
Seldom it can be found energetic
The promptness it does lack
It never works back to back
But the hate works very ferociously
With red eyes it acts very quickly
A full pack of energy
Blitzkrieg and scorching
Swashbuckling and blistering
It cuts very deeply and burns very badly
It works havoc but love does not.

In The Clouds

My head is in the clouds
whenever you walk my way.
Reality does not exist
and I’m lost for words
not knowing what to say.
The words I want to speak
are lost again for another day.

How am I ever
to tell you how I feel
when my head is in the clouds,
because my mind can’t concentrate
whenever you walk my way.
I’ve tried and I’ve tried
to make sense of it all.

One-day reality will kick in
and I will get a chance to say
the words I want to tell you,
but will it be too late
only love will know.
Until then my head will be
in the clouds when you walk my way.
