If you have ambition, you might not achieve anything, but without ambition, you are almost certain not to achieve anything.

Sonnet VI: This door you might not open

This door you might not open, and you did;
So enter now, and see for what slight thing
You are betrayed.... Here is no treasure hid,
No cauldron, no clear crystal mirroring
The sought-for truth, no heads of women slain
For greed like yours, no writhings of distress,
But only what you see.... Look yet again--
An empty room, cobwebbed and comfortless.
Yet this alone out of my life I kept
Unto myself, lest any know me quite;
And you did so profane me when you crept
Unto the threshold of this room to-night
That I must never more behold your face.
This now is yours. I seek another place.

You Have Lived

You have lived such a gentle life upon this earth
that I am stunned by your sight.
If I could give but a token of the love you have,
then I might not be this lonely tonight.
Let them have their smug and their cool, confined by fashion and peer.
I love you for your courage in this frightened atmosphere.
I love you for your courage in this frightened atmosphere.
Oh, there are so few brave one's like you. Need I explain?
Never wondering what to do, what to venture, what to gain.
And, you have loved, in a total way, from flesh to soul.
You speak, without coy without pose.
Your eyes can see that the emperor has lost his clothes.
And what's more, you'll tell the whole world what he stole.
Let them have their fad and their fix, confined by fashion and peer.
I love you for your courage in this frightened atmosphere.
I love you for your courage in this frightened atmosphere.

If You Are Not Feeling It

Do you have it in yourself to achieve?

Are you bothered by listening and discipline?
Does either one of them or both...
Make you cringe?
Especially when someone experienced,
Tells you over and over again...
Those are the two key elements to success.

And you regard criticisms, advice and suggestions...
As being offensive to your sensitivities?
Plus you rather socialize than to sacrifice your time,
To do anything that prioritizes...
What you claim to have love and interest to do.
And there is no loyalty or devotion applied?
Where is your passion?

Do 'I' think you have it in yourself to achieve?
That's the question you did ask me,
Right?
Well...
You have none of that of which I just mentioned.

Was that a trick question?
Or did you just want to see me laugh?
And why would you ask me,
A question like that in the first place?

If you are not feeling it...
What makes you believe that I can feel 'that',
Coming from you?
Stop seeking attention.
Stop seeking acceptance.
Start...
Believing in yourself and your abilities,
And you will never have to ask me...
Or anyone else,
A question like that again.
Now get out of my face.
You're wasting 'my' time.

You Are Not Going to Play With Me Today

You are so far removed from my to do list.
So distant you are,
My binoculars can not locate you.
I never thought I would feel this way.
But I am looking for a mind easier to find.
And yours?
It is never where you claim it to be,
Even when you bring it.

Playing peek-a-boo and hide and seek...
Chase-me-until-you-find-me games,
Were fine when I was a 'kid' in my 40's!
But one of us has grayed and moved on...
To seek a more muture outlook that pleases.
Don't smile and grin.
You are not that far from the fringes of this explanation.
Well...
Maybe you are.

When some of us became adults...
You decided to take another destination.
And I'm not adding that to my frustrations.
Of which you have helped to manifest.

You are so far removed from my to do list.
So distant you are,
My binoculars can not locate you.
I never thought I would feel this way.
But I am looking for a mind easier to find.
And yours?
It is never where you claim it to be,
Even when you bring it.

You are 'not' going to play with me today.
I have run out of scotch.
And my neighbors are not yet quite convinced...
My standing on the ledge of the building,
Is to get away from your voice.
They believe I have other wishes.
Even though I tell them I am fine...
You tell them I am having problems.
But you never tell them you are the main one!
They think I am the one who is 'nuts'!
However...
Five minutes with you,
Should end any clues I might drop!

You are not the wind

One summer day

Walking on a sunlit street

I plucked a leaf from a tree.

“Why did you do that? ” she asked.

“Just playing”, I said.

“Don’t harm the trees”, she said.

“They have their own life”.

But the wind yanks leaves all the time”,

I averred defensively.

She gave me a pensive look.

But you are not the wind”,

She said.

Think You Are Better

Look in the mirror
What do you see
Someone who is special
For there is no one else like me
I may not have the best looks
Or money or fame
But God made me special
For He knows my name
He formed me in His image
Like He did you
So it might not be apparent
I'm alot like you
So if you think of putting me down
Remember we have the same FATHER
So you are no better than me

Know who you are?

Do you know who you are? Do you?
perhaps you only think you do.
Can you accept that just maybe
you could have faults you cannot see.
Are you afraid that you might be
far different from the way you see
yourself? The darker parts of you.
you do not put on public view.
We all have something which we hide.
Some deep dark secret locked inside.
We all have traits we would disown.
If it were possible to do.
You must accept they’re parts of you.

Not Who You Are

All i can think about is you
You need help i cant give
Yet i feel like im supposed to help you
Instead of stay away
Being apart hurts me too
But we have to stay away
I love you and that will never change
I dont want to stay away
I know you feel the same
But its better this way
We only endure pain when were together
You tear apart everything good in your life
Why would you hurt us
When all we did was love you
Its not who you are
Your much better then that

Because You Are Not Here

My poems have lost rhythm
Because you are not here!
My room is in a mess
Because you are not here!

My life seems like a nightmare
Because you are not here!
God is more close to me now
Because you are not here!

My night doesn’t seem to pass
Because you are not here!
All songs seem monotonous
Because you are not here!

No book of poems seems interesting
Because you are not here!
I don’t see the sky of dawn
For such a long time
Because you are not here!

You Are Not A Dream

last night you are the woman undressing before me
beside the brook with bamboo trees swaying on its side

i am told that you are just a dream
the fruit of my weary mind

i have seen the waterfalls flowing from your hair
i have touched the full moon of your breasts
i laid my body on the cool green grass of your body
your hands are soft and perfumed like the orange flowers
cascading on my face


i feel the rain dripping on my cheeks
when you left me

you are not just a dream my love
you are real from the very beginning of my sleep

You Are Not So Much Ignorant To Be Over Confident

Do not be over confident
You are not so much ignorant
To be over confident that
You do not have any problem
In life wise finds full of them,
Do not worry as worries are not
Going to solve rather aggravate them.
Heed to my suggestion and go to market
Buy a washing machine, feed him free power
Free electric and free water and feel free
To ask him to take in those problems
To twist, to turn, to knock, to kick
To make cleaner, better and brighter
Than before and I assure you, it is confident
Not to cheat you as it is too much ignorant.

You Are Not Alone On This Earth

I have more poems to touch you people out there,
And like the hands of my works from my effective mind;
With a selfless act to touch your natural stance,
And with a satirically manner on this writing techniques!
Use your inner self to touch someone,
And let your heart take control of your mind;
With the sense of humour like the smile on the face,
For you are not alone on this earth.
Negative thoughts produce negative results,
So keep your love alive with positive thoughts always! !
And like the rebirth date of the bard,
For you are not alone on this earth.

Do Not Tell Me You Are Psychic

Why...
Are you exposing your 'butt',
In public?

'Did or did you 'not' say,
You wanted to see another side of me? '

I was referring to your personality.

'And...
What are you saying?
You find this side of me offensive? '

No!
But I do find what you are doing 'indecent'.

'To who?
Or whom?
Only you are looking.
Make up your mind.
Do you like this side of me or not?
How do you expect us,
To get to know one another...
If you are already showing signs of being indecisive.'

I think you have issues.

'Do not tell me you are psychic.
I wouldn't have done that at all,
If I knew that.'

Merry Christmas (Wherever You Are)

(Jerry Laseter/Mack Vickery)
I had no reason for shopping this season
But I hung your stocking today
It makes me feel better
Though were not together
Youll always be in my heart
Merry Christmas, wherever you are
Since it was Christmas
I thought you might call
Or have you stopped thinkin about me at all
Itd be a perfect white Christmas
A storybook picture
If I could just share it with you
Though youre not here with me
Ive got your memories
They keep me goin sweetheart
Merry Christmas wherever you are
--- Instrumental ---
Though youre not here with me
Ive got your memories
Youll always be in my heart
Merry Christmas wherever you are
Merry Christmas wherever you are...

You Are Not Perfect

You are not perfect.
No matter how long you rehearse.
Nor should you give up your quest,
To do what you do and be at your best.

Do not give up that thirst.
Even when you are feeling the symptoms...
You can deliver much better.
With a worth far greater than your worse exposed.

No one knows but you what it is you can do.
And as long as you continue...
Only this to yourself,
Do you have to prove!

You are not perfect.
And if you were...
Who and how,
And 'when' would that be determined?

Now, on the other hand and for a small fee...
I will tell you 'perfection' you are!
All day if that is your wish.
In a constant feeding you need.
I will be there for you with unlimited support.

I Wonder Where You Are

Often we are not apart,
And needing.
With our hearts too near,
And accessible to feel.

We have not been many times distant,
To miss what is wished...
For us that is clear.

I wonder where you are,
When I am here wanting you.
I fear I do,
Someone new you might meet.

I am that insecure.
And this only you can do to me.
When I am not sure,
If I satisfy your needs completely.

We have not been many times distant,
To miss what is wished...
For us that is clear.

Often we are not apart,
And needing.
With our hearts too near,
And accessible to feel.

I wonder where you are,
When I am here wanting you.
And I fear...
I do.
Someday you may not find,
I satisfy your needs completely.

You Are As Old As I 'Is

You're trying to clutch onto time,
Like you are smuggling family heirlooms.
Better give that notion up!
The only thing that seems not to age,
Is your hair that you dye platinum today...
And next week it might be chestnut!
And makeup can not disguise...
You have not seen twenty-five,
In at least fifteen years.
Give or take a few Christmas seasons beyond that!
When a blind man can detect your age...
He can tell you've been around,
For many many years.
He knows there's more rings around you...
Than some trees you have outlived!
There's no need to break down in tears.
People can see you're 'not' my grand-daughter!
You appear like me...
Good!
However...
You are as old as I 'is'!
So take that mud off your face!
I'm tired of shoveling up this place.

You Are Not An Ant

Having audible ears and sharp tongue
does not mean you can not be
deaf and dumb even
you can not see
the door
as the heart is
sealed too so you
want to go through the
window, the unnatural, path,
coward! What did you know before your
birth? Have you any adequate etiquette?
Did you bring here yourself by your
own self ?
Who has sent
you why and for what?
How can you forget! Once the poet
in me answered you as I love you, how could
I die! Ants, ego-less jumping on fire,
you are human being, says the
philosopher, where hills
oceans suns and
moons
fail there succeed
a man, high hopes and
a lot of wants create a sense
of waste, look down to relief
your mental distress and see high how
beautiful is the vast space ! One star among
the millions waiting in peace for you to hug and kiss!

Just The Way You Are

(billy joel)
Dont go changing, to try and please me
You never let me down before
Dont imagine youre too familiar
And I dont see you anymore
I wouldnt leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far
I took the good times, Ill take the bad times
Ill take you just the way you are
Dont go trying some new fashion
Dont change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care
I dont want clover conversation
I never want to work that hard
I just want someone that I can talk to
I want you just the way you are
I need to know that you will always be
The same old someone that I knew
What will it take till you believe in me
The way that I believe in you
I said I love you and thats forever
And this I promise from the heart
I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are
Oh baby,i love you the way you are

You Are Unique

You are after all unique
But you need a slap or kick
Not in real but with words
Why don't you leave aside and look forward?

It is definitely beauty
Inner one but you look cutie
These all drives me crazy
Confident enough and makes me lazy

You are everything to me
I am totally dependant and free
As I need you more
You also want it to explore

As it happens to all
I need to respond to my call
When I need someone special
I need straight without any denial

It is fact of life
You need to be good wife
Surrender to me as whole
Hold me well and prevent fall

Life can prove as sharp edge of knife
It is up to you how you take it as wife
Think it twice before falling in love's magic
As these are ingredients of sure basics

There is no tact or malign game
From hart it has naturally came
You can feel sure of my good company
As you might have felt its absence when came across many
