wars, drugs, poverty
famine, fear, rape, death
that's the kind of world
desperate immigrants flee
and yet, we won't let them in
go die on the other side of our new wall
and stay away, this is ours
we should be ashamed...they are fellow humans
there's no kindness in our hearts
no tolerance, even for God's commandment
that we love our neighbors, as we love ourselves

"Sweet Taste of Love"
of true love
is divine essence
sprinkled from heavenly skyline by Angels.
hate resonates heart
dagger thrusts ---
love conquers life if hearts remain faithfully
as the golden arch shatters dreams caged in death.

inspirational, love, peace, philosophy, uplifting,
open hearts and open palms
expressing and receiving other’s feelings
Universality will be possible only when we focus
on human qualities that unite us. Respect, politeness,
cooperation, friendship, inclusion, teamwork. This stems
from the ability to listen to, and most importantly hear
other’s ideas, that are not necessarily our own, and allow
them to flourish also.

Sometimes its hard for me to put it into words, sometimes its hard for me to even think, I don't want to go another day, not knowing if you love me.
It's hard for me to spend another night with out you..I need your arms wrapped around me...I need to feel your kiss upon my cheek..I need to be able to look upon your face as the sun begins to rise in the early morning..you are the breath that I breathe...

jealousy, love, winter,
vanished in thin air
no trace remaining
of passion's fiery kisses
swift plunged into the icy abyss
where memories brittle crack --
winters of discontent in jealousy sown
