Power

Imagine having the power to affect someone's mood

Imagine having the power to cause war

Imagine having the power to cause suffering



Imagine having the power to make someone HAPPY

Imagine having the power to bring PEACE

Imagine having the power to bring LOVE



Imagine having the power to control your words.

Warning To America

The revolution is here

The revelation is near



Wake up america!

It's time you notice the lies

Our whole government is corrupt

anyone who speaks out dies



Don't believe me?

Research the Black Panthers

name one who didn't commit a "crime"

listen to me I'll give you all the answers



the most obvious lie is about the twin towers

the osama tapes were translated wrong

"jealous of our freedom" you see what they can do with power?

They know you'll believe everthing they say, but not me.



So the new world order is dawning

the war begins, fall in line

they gave al-queda six billion dollars in 1989

and of course saddam Hussein had chemical weapons

we sold him them after reagans election



God worked for seven days he slept on the seventh

the new world order was born on September 11th

Litter Creek/Raining Down Demands

Here they are our wild pledges

Watch them flee from soot to sea

Barren left with our stone vision

Trash it up and call to me



Brought to life from God forsaken

Septic through the rocks and toll

Picked upon by birds of cotton

Set upon by force unknown



Bare to mind we are mistaken

Care to think we've been mislead

But changes not to our first shaken

Head to toe we are well fed



Impose upon the artist fairground

I demand a fascination

Make believe I am your wanted

Show to me your heart's worth taken



Paint for me a sunlit sky way

All such things that make me sing

Draw the tears that know no daylight

Illustrate for your creek king



The land be ruled by hands of silken

Wrath reserved for neighbor's fool

I'll command the few grieve stricken

Raining embers down on you



I am makings of revival

Living breathing decompose

You will bend and bow so neatly

Working toil beneath my throne



And I will gladly seek your solace

Drunk and giddy from closed hands

Steep below me and I'll continue

To lay my crown upon the land.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

He demands a fascination.

THE NEWS

~The News~

(Rhyme poetry)







All over the world I hear,

Mostly bad news near and far,

This is truly, really bad,

And it makes me very sad.







It seems the media enjoys it,

Love to exagerate it a bit;

They give us only bad news,

Things that makes us all blue.







All over the world there's an ache,

Bad news is what most of us hear,

They forget to tell us good news,

And it grieve us and that's clear.

Burned Alive - 'A Voice Against Honour Killing'

I’ve never scattered your hopes my father

I’ve never scattered your hopes my mother or my brother

But why did you burn me alive?

Tell me why you set me alight?

Why did you show your love to me?

If you were to burn me alive



What is your right over my life?

What is your right over my death?

I was always your obedient servant

I was always your sister your daughter

And it’s still your blood that runs in my veins

Though you are blinded by your foolish pride



Now when I look at my shattered skin

I always wonder,

Why did you give birth to me?

If you were to steal my youth from me

Why didn’t you strangle me when I brought disgrace upon you?

For the first time as an infant

For being born as the only girl

Amongst seventeen proud men



Is this my punishment?

For being born a woman

Or is this my punishment?

For making love to the man of my dreams

Or is this my punishment?

For perusing my own dreams

Or is it because it was never meant to be for me



Couldn’t you see?

I was to bring a life to this cruel world

It was your own blood who was burning inside me

did you feel your blood raging?

When you poured your anger and inhumanity over me

And set me alight

And watched me burning alive



Tell me how to forgive you

For watching me burning alive

Tell me how to forgive you

For watching my whole life shattering in front of your eyes

Tell me how to forgive you

For expecting me to die



Remember it was your will to steal my life

But still I am happy

And still I can hold my head high and utter

“I am free”

From the prison of your family with inhumanity and rage

The family which was never mine

To love or to be loved








Author's Notes/Comments: 

Did you know that approximately over 6,000 women die within a year due to honour killings carried out throughout the world?
It should be understood that women possess equal rights as men for education and for all the other perspectives of life. The time has come to stop all these barbarian acts. The sad part about honour crimes is that, the decision to kill your own daughter or your wife is taken by the men in the family itself. What is the honour they get by killing these innocent women who struggle throughout their entire life? What is the honour the family gets by doing so?
Since the time women in these countries were born, they are being dominated by men and they are being treated worse than animals. Honestly not much people around the world know that these kinds of acts are carried out by certain countries of the world due to cultural and educational backgrounds. The sad part is, many of these acts are justified by the laws of the particular countries.
The time has come to be aware of this awful situation and this is the time to act against honour crime.
This poem is inspired by the book – “Burned Alive - Souad’

COURTESY







glitter-graphics.com











~Courtesy~







When someone give you something

Show that you have it in you

Be polite and always say

To them "Thank you"



Always say "Please" when you

Ask for anything you do

Don't be rude and unkind

Watch your tongue and actions too



Be kind and show some respect

For the elderly and your peers too

Don't be so loud and shout

When you want something you see



Say "Excuse me" and greet when you should

Offer a seat to older people and the weaker too

Lend your hand when someone needs it

And help anyone you can when they ask you



We might not be living in Victorian

Times anymore that I can see

This may be the Twenty-first century but

"Courtesy" never goes out of style for me.

Secret



Its a Secret but strained beyond understanding she is keeping me too far a distance in time. Limits of patience has worn out thin dime holes in shoe leather cigar butts in coffee stubbed whiskey added to my cokes by accident I am living as a Secret Fly. Outside in the cold distance the wind begins to howl wait this sounds like a song lyrices. You cannot reason with an animal you must simply tell it the way it is and MAKE him understand it because he has no understanding in his brain of law or other peoples rights. NO matter how difficult it may seem at first they do respond to fear. Every day into the winter adds peril for the house becomes god shelter must be there from the elements but is this no differant now from an animas burrow. I killed several differant people not with guns or knives but with my nasty oily tounged arrogaunt words a Soldier yes he is in the fields killing fences with Swords while a Poet CharlAX fends with Words meant too Offend none but only Heirarchy at the IvorY in the TOwers of Babble On. Its a sorry Bloddy Secret.
