Weasel words with easy starts are not the first ones to our hearts

Weasel words
with easy starts
are not the first
ones to our hearts
when the cold cadaver light of day
takes one of those we love away

After the funeral
- when the funeral was over
- After we had buried him

We walked across the grass
We walked across the grass
leaving footprints in the dew

footprints in the dew
How was that possible
’God’s name how was that possible

with him forever
And now, forever
footprints forever

looking back across the grass
The warmth of the day
losing us all, forever

To live or not to live

SUICIDE SUICIDE IN MY BRAIN
SUICIDE IS THE WAY
I CANNOT BEAR THE PAIN
I WILL KILL MYSELF BY DRINKING POISON
FOR MY LIFE DOES NOT HAVE A REASON

SUICIDES NOT THE WAY PLEASE USE YOUR BRAIN
FROM COMMITING SUICIDE THERES NOTHING YOU WILL GAIN
PRAY TO GOD YOU WILL DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE
FOR YOUR LIFE DOES HAVE A SPECIAL PURPOSE

YOU’LL KILL YOUR BODY NOT YOUR SOUL
IF YOU SUICIDE YOU ARE A FOOL
ONLY GOD IS THERE TO TAKE YOUR LIFE
SO PLEASE DON’T CUT YOUR WRIST
THROW AWAY THE KNIFE

ALL RIGHT THEN I HAVE MADE MY DECISION
I WAS WRONG I WAS MISTAKEN
I WILL NOT SUICIDE TO GO TO HELL
I WILL LIVE LONGER AND WORK FOR HEAVE

Live Without You

The day I realised -
I cannot live without
You.

I stormed the world
And said:
Come what may!
I’m not gonna
Live without you!

If God Did Not Give Me The Power As Writer

IF GOD DID NOT GIVE ME THE POWER AS WRITER

If God did not give me the power as writer,
To be recognized and remembered-
I should not necessarily
Live out the rest of my days
In shame and guilt and regret and sadness.

So I am not good enough.

God help me be good,
To those I love.

I have no reason to live

I havent a reason to live.
So my life I do now give.
Pills knife rope.
I dont give a damn how you cope

Im not going to live with torture and pain.
My life was by far in vain
I walked to many lanes.

I've not a reason to stay no more.
Just all the reasons to go.
What reasons do I have.

None of that crap matters now.
It matters not.
For live I shall not.

Im going to do it tonight.
So I bid you farewell And goodnight

Live in The Present

Live every second in fear of the Lord;
Spend every moment seeking Truth called God;
Pass every day with industry and love;
Weeks and years will fly, away like a dove.

Do your duty well to your Motherland;
Serve your brethren all using your own hand;
Walk every day talking to God beside;
Talk to Him your problems, let Him decide.

Live in the present, morrow need not come;
Live for a good cause, world will then welcome;
Live always ready, meet death anytime;
Live for the Maker’s sake in every clime!

Alone But Not Lonely

since the day you were gone
i kept seeing in my dreams
i kept talking to myself
cos you are around me
and people thought no one was around me
but i know
you are here with me
am not lonely

i might not be seeing you
but i know am not lonely
eachtime i sat at our usual place
i would always feel your presence around me
eachtime am alone
i just know one thing which kept reminding me of your touches, smile and kisses
every single moment spent are full of thought about you
though i can't touch you or hear you speak but i know you live in me
our heart beat together as one
you are right here with me
am not lonely

Live well, it's greatest protest

eat your vegetables
drink your milk
take care your parents
do not cheating
talk to your enemies
don't drunk and drive
follow nature law
do not run away
do not contaminate world with your narrow thought
enjoy your bad time
contact your dentist
keep your eyes and mouth
holiday is holiday
pay your bills
turn off television
start to walk, use the stairs
do not whining
do not exaggerate thing
do not swept away by trend
control yourself
don't force yourself to be nice
different is not a big thing
love your earth
relax, it won't kill you
respect others
find your space
do it right
this is not hell
live well, it's greatest protest

She will not cry

She has pain locked in her eyes.
But still she will not cry.
No she wont.
She will not cry.

She has the anger deep in her eyes.
Her eyes are evil with the madness that sets her eyes ablaze,
She won't cry.
No she will not cry.

She has fear in her eyes.
She has the pain in her eyes too.
The smile she wears is a disguise,
She won't cry.
No she will not cry.

All hope she once had has died.
She allways knew everybody lied.
She tried her fears to hide.
But they came washing in like the tide.

She has deaths hand in hers.
She hopes not to live one more day.
It hurts to feel.
To feel brings pain.

Did they see her die inside?

My Dreams Need Not Die (A Bittersweet Valentine)

If I were not meant to be here right now,
Then, please explain to me just quite how
I did come to be here in the manner and time
That I have; just because you are, again, not prime-
Because you now battle the inner demons which curse you-
This does not mean MY dreams need die, and I, not pursue
All MY aspirations, which allow Answer to all MY Prayers!
Dreams and Hopes are only fulfilled by the heart that dares
Be Faithful, in the face of overwhelming obstacles, and disbelief;
I have always been same, yet now, you give me grief,
When you asked exactly this of me, so recently;
Regrettably, your senselessly afeared mind treats me indecently,
Because I represent all you have ever wanted, but will not let live;
All you need is the gift of your open heart-one that your afeared mind, will not let give!

-Maurice Harris,14 February 2012

Not Your Type Of Town

It will never be known as a cultural town
Where footballers and macho men vie for renown
In the pub one once spoke of Rembrandt someone asked who is he
If he does play football his name is strange to me.

If you cannot talk of work, farming, politics or sports and join your pub mates in a beer
This not your sort of town what business have you here
Though if you like line dancing and Country music that might be your saving grace
For these are the most cultural things that are known to the place.

If you talk of Beethoven or Handel they might ask who are they
For they must not be famous never heard of them anyway
Those we most admire play cricket or football
These are the people that we wish to recall.

If you are literary minded or a poet at heart
Or if you are one who is interested in art
Then this is a town you ought not to live in
For here you may not meet with similar kin.

No One Has to Know You Are Not Medicated

'Their explanations are totally ridiculous.'

I know it and you know it.
But we are suppose not to show that we know.
We are to pretend we are convinced,
That what they do makes sense.
To uphold their eroding credibility.
And all we have to do is live through it.
Go through the motions.
As if what they do in our minds does not exist.

'So,
In other words...
We are to sacrifice our realities,
And keep them in a deluded pretense...
Kept with crumbling standards,
Observed but not spoken?
Live a lie...
Is that what you're saying? '

Not only live it...
Become it!

'But...
That's a sick existence! '

Ssssshhh...
No one has to know,
You are not medicated.
And that is the challenge,
You must face.
Pretending not to be disgusted,
And disgraced by it all!
Unless of course...
You decide you have no choices left.
And they perceive you as completely deranged.
Which does provide its benefits.

Boris Pasternak

It is not seemly to be famous...

It is not seemly to be famous:
Celebrity does not exalt;
There is no need to hoard your writings
And to preserve them in a vault.

To give your all-this is creation,
And not-to deafen and eclipse.
How shameful, when you have no meaning,
To be on everybody's lips!

Try not to live as a pretender,
But so to manage your affairs
That you are loved by wide expanses,
And hear the call of future years.

Leave blanks in life, not in your papers,
And do not ever hesitate
To pencil out whole chunks, whole chapters
Of your existence, of your fate.

Into obscurity retiring
Try your development to hide,
As autumn mist on early mornings
Conceals the dreaming countryside.

Another, step by step, will follow
The living imprint of your feet;
But you yourself must not distinguish
Your victory from your defeat.

And never for a single moment
Betray your credo or pretend,
But be alive-this only matters-
Alive and burning to the end.

Decision Made Not To Live!

We can't be carved, programmed and displayed,
As others expected for their dreams collapsed,
Carving done at every part of our life without informed,
Programming updated every stage of our life that intended,
Displayed all over the world what they have achieved,
By political carving, economical programming,
And the display as the developed on going,
When our time is not in our hands to enjoy,
Pawned for monthly salary from the bosses,
Every activity is scheduled when and how to do,
We are not free to do what we like,
Kissing our spouse has to be stopped,
When the alarms ring, blare and repeat,
Caring of our kids unintentionally transferred,
cooking of the meat, dead for many seasons,
gulping of supplements with no reasons,
carrying the tiara of pride on our noses,
Wearing the clothes of herds days after days,
Time passes very fast, half the time drowsy,
When we lived as we liked to remember and cherish?

Not stranger

Not stranger

Even if you are stranger
Then prove as good manager
Capture their heart sans anger
Show love as your prime hunger

Silence is surrender
Mix with people at large and offer
You will be loved and called master
Real friend in time at the time of disaster

Love is not the only key
It is message from almighty
Shower it in plenty without feeling pity
Capture heart with it is called divine beauty

It is not fault with world
We are only blowing cold
Trying for all excuses to remain aloof
And then searching for the unnecessary proof

God has sent you alone
Not to live in isolation and feel lone
This may make you feel dejected and torn
Worthless to have come on earth and born


Someone advised me that the case is not so
The world is same and you must forgo
Life can be still made divine
As desert looms large after famine


Oh, some one told me still further
World is large and need not bother
”love is in abundance” I said and roared in laughter
This is not the reason we are seeking after

I Am Not Religious

My friend, religious I am not, when by you I’m put on the spot,
My belief is found in only one; God’s Only Risen, Eternal Son.
This isn’t a belief found in men, but, in one who died for them,
And Christ, who died, rose again, to offer New Life to all men.

Religion’s a man’s institution; a fallen man’s religious solution,
Devised upon this earthly sod, in man’s attempt to reach God,
Embracing indeed a broad array, of beliefs in our present day,
Beliefs men embrace religiously, so other men around can see.

Our salvation is all of God’s Idea, to regain for us life eternally,
That’s why I cling only to Christ, the very Author of Eternal Life.
Religion calls The Author a liar, as it sets its belief much higher,
Than the True Sovereign Lord, leaving many Truths unexplored.

Religious is a common phrase, used by men in different ways,
And many can be religious friend, not knowing God in the end.
The religion that I speak of, compromise God’s Truth and Love,
Having a form of godliness, as it lacks Christ’s Righteousness.

Friend religious I may have been, back before I was Born Again,
But now religion plays no part, with Jesus living within my heart.
Now all my life I live for Him, Christ, who saved me from my sin,
Not to live the present religiously, but to live with Christ eternally.

Not Ours To Give

For you, I would give the world, a phrase that many people herald,
But, earth is not ours to give, but, just a place that we mortals live.
Heaven’s not a place to assume; only in Christ can we get a room,
A room prepared by God’s Son, who created upon earth everyone.

All has been made by God alone, through the power of His Throne.
By Him all were given breath, and by His Decree, all will face death.
Some may say all on this earth, are in God’s eyes, the same worth,
Regarding Creation, this is true, but, all men need to be born anew.

Some say we are all of God’s Family, but, that is closer to fantasy,
Yes, we were all created by Him, but, then the Devil had entered in,
Deceiving the first man and wife, he brought choice into man’s life,
That choice that still remains today, whatever one may think or say.

All perfection God created in man, was tainted by Satan’s evil plan,
From God man was now separated, as sin by Satan is perpetuated,
Bringing us to the Cross of Christ, God’s only way into Eternal Life,
The way to Heaven for all of us, is when in Christ we place our trust.

Though we’re all created by God, we’re Satan’s children on this sod,
Until we’re born in the Spirit above, in the choice of Calvary’s blood.
As earth is not ours to give, without Christ, you will not eternally live,
Instead of breathing Heavenly breath, you’ll surely see eternal death.

It Implies Not Looking Back

What a word...
Forward.
It implies not looking back.
Or getting too accustomed,
To that which is familiar and intact.

So many have been comforted,
By schedules made and keeping set dates.
With a scratching off from a menu decided,
To replace or hesitate to eventually procrastinate.

What a word...
Forward.
It implies not looking back.
Or getting too accustomed,
To that which is familiar and intact.

Even Mother Nature comes to assist with this movement.
With a shifting of Earth and turbulent winds.
Spinning storms called hurricanes,
From the shores of Africa that begin...
In vast waters referred to as the Atlantic Ocean.
And still there are those demanding entitlements,
With preferences prayed in a daily devotion.
As if they have rights to insist a life liked to live.

What a word...
Forward.
It implies not looking back.
Or getting too accustomed,
To that which is familiar and intact.
But...
Unfortunate are those who believe,
A moving back in time...
Is a choice to make as to who will lead,
Them away from truth...
To produce more delusions and fantasies!

What a word...
Forward.
It implies not looking back.
Or getting too accustomed,
To that which is familiar and intact.
And leaving behind many detached,
Who will never become attached to reality.

Moving forward is the change everyone will believe in,
Whether to embrace, accept or not.
We live to experience, grow to then distance,
From aged beliefs to advance to other adventures.
With a wisdom kept to keep to be reminisced but not lived,
Repeatedly to comfort our insecurities.

'I hate change.'

Me too.
I wish I had more dollars.
