Baba, What is life ?
He politely said to me, " Life is Duty . "
I asked to my mother
Maa, What is life ?
She said to me with smile, " Life is Responsibility . "
I asked to my teacher
Sir, What is life ?
He said to me with love, " Life is Education . "
I asked to my spiritual master
Gurujee, What is life ?
He said to me with confidence, " Life is Devotion . "
Today my son who reads in class nine
Babai, What is life ?

She: I have no one to shower love upon me.
He: "I" love you
She: You are a busy man. You don't have time for anything. You neither wish me on my birthday nor text me ever. You never speak sugary sweet words to me.
He: I "LOVE" you
She: I have neither family nor friends, I possess neither wealth nor any riches, I have no education nor do I have any knowledge of the world.
He: I love "YOU"
Her eyes melted and his heart filled with joy.

education, journey, love, relationship, romantic love,
We fell in love and married young,
others said we couldn’t know.
Who else could truly know my heart,
or which way I should go?
We all must choose the path to walk,
and how we’ll live each day.
It makes no difference the choice we make,
if we take God along our way.
All our challenges will be lessons learned,
he can make it a perfect day.
Others may snicker and laugh at us,
it doesn’t matter what they may say.
God teaches us through every test,
and after struggles he gives us rest.

People are commonly different
Symbol of diversity piece
Pure race doesn’t exists
Color and creed are just an identity
Believe only in human history
God sculptured them from clay
People are equally created
Having many opposites
But respecting others taste
When everyone is treated equal
Nothing appears but peace in hand
Discrimination, disunity and, suffering won’t be born anymore
Written to advocate to suppress racism

Earth is what we become and makes us whole.
Air is the first and last thing we breathe in.
Fire is what consumes us and eats our sin.
Water cleanses us, mind, body and soul.
Spirit is in us all and makes us who we are.
Without these we would fall oh so far.
Invite them into our sacred circle and pay tribute.
As we are condemned, we are resolute.
We love fiercely and fight for our freedom.
Ignorance breeds fear and unwisdom.
Thank them for gracing us with their presence.
While we give our thanks and recompense.
Exhilarated and feeling like a newborn child,
Wow this circle's "magic" is wild.

I see beyond the clothes you wear,
The color of your eyes and hair,
The things you both love and deplore,
Your status, education, or
All other worldly things. I swear. . .
My love for you cannot compare
To any other’s. I’m aware
Of what you need that you might soar!
I see beyond.
You are my child; when in despair,
You need to know how much I care.
I understood your soul before
Your earthly sojourn! Evermore
I’ll guide you. Come to me in prayer;
I see beyond!

One big room
Teacher, six grades, love
Chaos, respect, learning, fun
Dodge Ball, lunch box, blue crayons, Huckleberry Finn
For Nigel's contest, sigh...way back when...

If I knew Picasso,
I’d say Pablo come and see.
Bring your canvass here,
And capture this beauty.
I’d ask him as he painted,
The things he’s thinking of.
If painting brought him peace,
As he paints a painted love.
I‘d watch as he stroked,
The canvass from his soul.
It would leave me in awe,
If I knew Picasso.

beautiful, education, emotions, feelings, love, red,
Her lustrous skin captures his vision
He gently carves his desire on her
The foreplays of word begins
As she divulges the door to heaven
Bewitched by the color of her moonlight,
he bathes within the salt of her valley
The mystery behind his curtain of words
Is unlocked by his divine mistress
His heart races when she silently meets
the poet of her sensual dreams
As he traces her beauty with his fingertips
Ice melts on her crimson lips
And the foreplays of word begins
Thank you red for sharing pens

children, education, family, friendship,
What is spoon-feed?
Feeding our thoughts
Sincerity, Honesty and Truth
Called Constructive Criticism
Striving to be at our best
Helping because of love
Motivated to Construct
Mistakes, Errors, Faults
It is okay
We are not perfect
Why use hell
Instead of Condemned?
Hell is Bulls Eye
Exact place when condemned
by Sara Kendrick |
A...Affection that is not sexual but spiritual or on a higher plane
G...God's love for mankind
A...A love revealed in Jesus
E...Exceptional love like God's love in John 3:16

caregiving, education, inspirational,
We only have one life
this is not a rehearsal
live your life
don't waste it
your's or others
love one another
life is for living
be nice to others
when they have gone
we cannot change things
change them now
it's not to late
love one another
it's easier than you think.

Repay the universe means
Races to live on the planet happily
Re join my friends to
Replace hatred, war and agony.

baby, blessing, endurance, graduation,
Irrefutable evolution conduits
Matter tip toes through tunnels
Microscopic nano shifts continue
Outperformers filter free of funnel
Replicas of kept traits hail heredity
Thrivers cognate with larger logic
Attentive nurture forms pedigree
Love poured over timid progeny
Genome keys cut exacting bones
Entrapped wrapped sticky chrysalis
Nature photocopies, care duly hones
Elevating banquet, perpetual Christmas
Elevation in Evolution

I fear not the glow of the rising sun.
I fear the perils that leave the tasks undone
I fear not the failure in examination
I fear the education that kills imagination.
I fear not the dearth of money
I fear stretching my palm in times of exigency.
I fear not the love's magical flow
I fear the burial of unspoken love in the grave of uncertain tomorrow.
I fear not the hurting word
I fear if there would be a day when I leave every word unheard
I fear not the untimely death
I fear the burial of notable thoughts under the blanket of ceased breath.

allusion, education, poems, write,
But my school master
my father and mother
the classmates and friends
contributed little, or nothing
Lessons to write poems
Life taught me major skills
Inspired me with intrinsic love
And it made me to conclude;
“Best and lasting lessons in life
are not taught by institutions,
but by the often neglected
wild bushes of life.
The harsher the wilderness,
the greater the lesson.”
by Tom Bell |
angst, education, happiness, life,
I am amazed
By what happens
People long lost
at any cost...
Seems I was not awake
I can not shake
They walk right by me
And I don't seem to see
Lost in thought
Lost in hurt
I must arise
From the dirt
There's Love to be had
There's wonders to see...
I just never thought....
This could happen to me.
by Kim Rodrigues |
Witches pitched against witches…
Itch of teacher to tell
them the truth.
There are no brooms
in the closet,
and solid students,
with their thoughts flying
opening their eyes for the first time,
as if reborn into a life of love and light.

We have been together
treasured joy now for many years
we trust each other with our
emotions, with affection, tears,
Any day when you are sick or hurting
I feel your pain - significant other,
when either-one needs attention
we help one another...
These mutual friendly feelings
for assistance, approval, support
form our tight bonds,
usually never broken
Sharing visions, time together
we respect each other,
regardless of shortcomings
I know you, "I love you anyway"

What a sad moment to say goodbye?!
And spread our wings so as to fly
Leaving lovely school days away
And tracing our paths in the life way
I will miss you with smiling faces
who draw smiles in school places
I will miss you the shining sky
That with knowledge makes me high
True we may go in multi- ways
But all my life you will be my rays
Forever we'll be as one tie
Never your love in my heart shall die
We may be like fallen leaves
But our stem firm and never cleaves
We will collect drops of morning dew
And warm our minds with learning too
We will join high education
Then we can develop our nation
We will raise it in the world high
And its progress no one can deny
