Failure to properly control our borders costs citizens in many ways: schools become overcrowded, medical resources are stretched too thin, other government services are overtaxed, and taxes increase further.

In music, the punctuation is absolutely strict, the bars and rests are absolutely defined. But our punctuation cannot be quite strict, because we have to relate it to the audience. In other words we are continually changing the score.

For most of the 20th century, we didn't just enjoy economic success in Michigan, we defined it. Our innovators and entrepreneurs created the world's most productive companies, and our unions made sure that productivity led to broad middle class prosperity.

The Sunset, Woven Of Soft Lights

THE sunset, woven of soft lights
And tender colors, lingers late,
As looking back on all day's dreary plights,
Compassionate;
— The foolish day of hopes so high,
Who counts her hours by blunders now,
Yet wears at last this jewel-crown of sky
Upon her brow.
Out to eternity she goes,
Not for her failure scorned, but see!
Our poor day flushed with beauty, one more rose
On God's rose-tree.

Meditation Song

Life is a series of problems. Do we want to moan about them or solve Them?
Without discipline we can solve nothing. With only some discipline we Can solve nothing. without discipline we can solve only some problems. With total discipline we can solve all problems. Problems are the cutting Edge that distinguishes between succes and failure. Problems call forth our courage and our wisdom; indeed, they create Our courage and our wisdom.

Remembering Where You Once Stood

There are moments

Defined in our lives

That mark our growth

That allow us to see

That beyond the place

We come from is

A world that is full of

Oppurtunities.

It is moments like

This that we sit back

And reflect on

Where we have been

And where we are going

And what lies ahead of us.

It is in these moments when

We learn what true growth is

And look forward

While still remembering

Where you once

Stood.

Love And Serve

God created man to love and serve
Love and serve all with strong nerve and verve
Expect not anything in return
Worry not over the strain that turn
Falter not over the goal you set
Tinker not with the grand steps you plan
Treat success and failure on even plane!

Success and failure sure part of our life
Success after failure sweeter still
Lessons you learn taller than a hill!

God's creations our great kith and kin
Deserve well to be cared, loved and served
Served to love and serve millions in turn
Drop of noble act in the sea of life!

The Other I

The shadow lit
is The Other fixed;
the Other outlined and defined
in our mind's soupy silhouette
mixed.

Other acts and reacts
runs away;
runs to and from me,
Other either way
is by us transfixed;

distance, close or far
loved or feared
Other exists
for all of us;

this Other friend,
that Other idea
this Other this
that Other that
shifts us
and shares
with you and I
this Universe.

Others live
Others die
Other me
Other it
is us

Other haunts, smiles, loves me
Other loves me not
Other is;

Conundrum:

How to breathe
Other
and Otherwise be me
yet fearlessly
be us.

Modern Love Story

A boy a girla love story
but why did it end in misery
taking our chances getting our thrills
taking and taking but never getting our fill
And this is what I see a modern love story
love defined on our TV
telling us teaching us what we need
are we in love or just so alone
that we're looking for anyone to hold
And this is what I see a modern love story
when the prey is caught, the thrill gone
so we'll switch partners and move along
and we won't use our brains
because our lust is too strong
overlooking the person to whom
the body belongs
And this is what I see a modern love story

Love Is Immortal

Not being romantic I think reality is even
better than the stories and fantasies we
conjure and life teaches people should
stay the same, not change into princes
as in fairy-tales, a lovable Beast should
stay as he is, Beauty is to accept him

A frog need not change, his chosen girl
should love him croaking in slimy body
or find another with the qualities she re-
quires for happiness - Queen of Hearts
shouldn't marry Conan the Barbarian -
she cannot accommodate him

Attempts to change him is self-delusion,
make him retreat into barbaric behaviour
to assert himself - Christine forgave the
Phantom, he realised she was too good
for him and set her free; this way one
makes an impact - not fighting back

When bitter Phantoms attack to spread
their own despair, the victim can choose
to remain the same, attackers will flee or
learn the secret of a forgiving life, we are
always in charge of our reaction to life -
though we descend into the pit

With despairing types, we can seek help
at the widespread fountains of wisdom
and get up again, love is immortal
if we choose to make it so…

A Return to Primitive Roots

So much natural-open-land
marked off limits
along American interstate freeway

America when were you ever open to the public?
Was your agenda ever transparency?
What about democracy?

Where is this mythical land of the free?

standard institutionalized mad house
scatological specimens of spectral studies
automated dogma propagated patriotic propaganda
societal progress cliff dive perpetuation

They filled our heads with so many dark delusions
glorified devil and vice gave us greed in place of bread
lulled us to sleep with star spangled anthems of war
dug the grave of truth and virtue
built the iron temple of I atop
the hollowed green of God

May no more faith further-hence
be invested in industry's false icons

Let ours be an age defined by
intellectual imagination
technological innovation
aimed to awaken awe-inspiring
spiritual transformation

an age defined by our bio-duty
preserving earth's natural diversity
an age ushering universal-planetary-unity

a return to primitive pre-industrial roots
tendril souls grown under ge's gentle tender guidance
planetary partnership reviving the feminine touch
humanity revivified in the prenatal ecstasy
returning to Great Green Goddess's symbiotic womb

Why? ? ?

Am I a looser who just don't wanna accept or i am afraid to confess?
why everyone out in the world is waiting eagerly for me so that they can suggest.
why everyone pretends that i am someone who have made out her life a mess.
why if something couldn't be achieved..all the previous acheivements have become useless.
why if the final short is missed all the previous victories have been dismissed.
why someone else's success seems to have joined hands with my failures to make fun of me.
why the absence os success overshadred all the flavours of life which were passionately required just few days back?
why someone else's success forces you to live his life even for a short while..
why i can't resist even when i know this will make the pain persist.
why a single miss makes meaningless all your previous hits.
why we forget all the kisses of success if we get a single kick.
why is it easy to suggest and difficult to follow.
why are we always ready to welcome success and failures allways knock when we are short of prep?
why its always the pain which we resist and it persist.
why me? ? ? this is the question we always want to b answered by pain and always forget when we get a chance to welcome the fame of success game....
why the success is something which we always deserve and failure is always when our badluck plays its role? ?
WHY? ? ?

The American G. Volans: The Flying Squirrel

For now, this is it; this is high-five time.

This is a newly enjoyable venue,

The Fierce Five, especially you

Ought to be proud by taking considerable time,

To relax, enjoy your success,

And by ignoring the delusional critics who thought less

Of you a minute ago. You are the champion,

The former under-dog that yesterday stood

No chance of winning anything. The neighborhood

Loves you unconditionally. You are the modest lion,

Who made history in the arena. You are the agile squirrel,

Who has no fear for speed and height.

You know how to flash your God-given might.

You are young, strong, genuine and beautiful.

(Beauty is not truly well defined in our society.)

You simply have to keep on practicing consistently,

As in the past. With the help of the Almighty;

All things are possible. You possess great ingenuity,

And incredible determination. The sky is not your limit,

You will undoubtedly fly beyond: you are the champion.

You know how to lose gracefully and how to win.

You are young, strong, genuine and beautiful.

You are Gabby Douglas-Volans, the flying squirrel,

Who will not give up. You are the unselfish teammate,

Who makes unheard-of sacrifices for all.

Please, please, do not be afraid to walk tall.

You are human, modest and not perfect.

The Almighty Jehovah will help and protect

You, your teammates and clans, until the end of time.

You are the best; you are at your prime.

There is always tomorrow to win more honors,

More medals, more accolades and more awards.

You are determined like Phelps and the Williams on the floor.

You are combative; you always do more, and give more.

You are young, strong, and of course, the champion.

You know how to lose and definitely how to win.

The media is an inexperienced lover,

An instigator and a fallible harbinger.

Remember that you have the unconditional support of the neighborhood,

Who will stand by you, even when the climate is under a strange mood.

A surprise in store

Everybody is independent of their own action
We feel no surprise or express our reaction
It is natural phenomena and complete cycle
They perform well and crate no trouble

All divine bodies believe in self discipline
No one has got any regret or room to complain
Their actions some times may cause us agony and pain
It is their usual course of action and honestly maintained

Whole ecological balance is kept under control and check
Timely arrival of monsoon and complete life is kept on track
Who can complain about treachery of nature and its course?
We know it is absolutely in order and for our benefit of course

It is symbolic gesture of nature to be useful to mankind
It has many secret weapons in its armory to unfold and unwind
It has dimensional powers to be cruel and a the same time very kind
We always take it gracefully to our hearts and never mind

It is generosity on the part of nature that makes us to think
We look at the horizon and see its vastness in blue ink
Complete spread over entire globe still no sign of arrogance
How can we pretend to be everything out of ignorance?

Sea’s vastness too gives complete different picture
Your sailing on it is smoothly reassured
How many miles deep inside has its boundary?
Still it remains calm with all other thoughts as secondary

We have nothing at our disposal of such things
We remain proud with lots of things to think as something
We are not in position of delivering anything as good
We have no slight intension of taking out other people from out of wood

There are lots of things to be learnt from around the globe
It must appeal us for the outset without inviting any probe
There is indication of doing everything good to others
We still involve in unnecessary things and make others to bother

We are powerless and yet claim superior in all respect
This is only startling revelation and dangerous in true aspect
We can be dashed to ground in friction of seconds
There is no use whether you remain in dilemma or pretend


Learn to live like giants and yet very humble
Learn from mistakes and never go down or fumble
It is wisest way of all to be near to the truth
What else you need to know Sun as real proof

Self Is Grand Mother Of All!

Knowledge is mother of fear,
minion of mother,
Understands what is fear,
Knowledge of pain,
Knowledge of failure,
knowledge of action and reaction
and when grown up,
becomes minion of fears!

Soul in the growing body,
knowledge becomes mother of fear,
May be pain of a fall,
Or a bite of ants or wasps,
knowledge of things around us is mother of fear!

Knowledge of own capabilities and inabilities,
Knowledge of bondage and faults,
Old age and death,
knowledge of pain
strain,
failure or insult,
knowledge of fall is mother of all fears!

Body, mind and intelligence,
When glows with knowledge of world,
Every thought and action,
Orbits around unknown fear,
Spinning or rotating around axis of fear,
its cute pet name is carefullness!

Paradoxically,
Fear is mother of all Knowledge,
Fear of fall,
Makes one carefull on walk,
Fear of consequences,
Makes one to think right,
act right or walk straight,
Fear is mother of all Knowledge,
Takes one above the plane,
or takes one to man of knowledge,
Make one polite and flexible,
fear of death makes one to think of eternal,
Fear of law, may be law of land,
Law of divine or law of nature is mother of knowledge,
Everyone is comes with lesson,
Either to teach or to learn,
Every fear of consequences is mother of all Knowledge divine!

Fear of flaws of own,
or flaws in human laws is mother of all Knowledge!
The best teacher never preach,
But teach to clean the knowledge that is mother of fear,
Tears off the veil of fears,
Lit the lamp of knowledge of fearlessness,
light the dark corners,

Fear of sin or reasons for the fall,
Replaced by knowledge of courage,
Expert is that captain of ship,
Drive to safe still water,
Anchore safe,
the ship swinging in storm of fear
Is safely anchored in knowledge free of fears!

Or fills with knowledge of fearless Self,
can pierce the balloon of fear,
Make one
Work well, live well and behave well!

And fear becomes a trait,
Knowledge is mother of fear,
Knowledge of old age,
Weakness of old age,
Or may be of body and mind at growing stage!
Experience of adverse
gives rise to knowledge that is mother of fears!

But experience of love and compassion,
Fear of fall is good companion,
Teaches discipline and restraint
Make one daring and caring,
Someday one will understand the paradox,
'Knowledge is mother of fears,
Fear is mother of all knowledge,
God is father, and Self is Grand mother of all! ! !
