Slaughtered Innocence

The hideous and the humble
Blood peppers falling snow
As world hurtles to the tipping point
Life chokes on ignited air
Wrenching love from hungry mouths
Stars fall without sound
Some weep helpless, day through night
Ever wondering how
Never knowing why ...

A Wind That Blows Loneliness

The wind blows softly over the lonely,
The suffering think of themselves only.
A world of chaos, racism, and turmoil,
Utmost egomanias spoil our toil.

An old man groans, no decent place to live,
Are there relatives? No comfort to give?
Blow softly oh lonely wind, they care not,
They are comfortable, and all forgot.

Somewhere a child is crying his heart out,
Can anyone guess what it's all about? 
Is the child hungry, lost, or cast aside?
Much abused, ill-treated, or love denied?

There are millions of cries heard on the wind,
Alas no one bothers: is man unkind?

No Gold Nor Silver

No gold nor silver, weights my needy purse
Spun silk and finery I have no need
Such poverty of wealth be not God's curse
For bless'd the man who covets not for greed

My wealth is in the lilies of the field
The colors of the sunsets thrill my soul
Fruit trees and animals provide their yield
And stewardship to nature is my toll

But verdant forests do not warm a bed
The moon and stars, though friends, are silent stones
And lonely is the footpath which I tread
For one true heart, I'd share my pauper's throne

A golden heart and pauper's paradise
For love and happiness, a humble price

- Give Off Your Heart -

Reflection upon the man's generosity
You are blessed with holy words and pure good deeds
Those who are generous and those who never want to share
Everything can be used - over and over again
Get rid of something that has collected dust for a long time
It is spring's most beautiful adventure

Recycle of things that are redundant or unnecessary
Some live in wealth while others in poverty
We all have something to share
Something funny, something weird or something pretty
A gift that gives you the feeling of happiness
You can make a difference - spread joy to others in your daily life

All In a Day's Calling

First, settle your differences 
    with those whom you love
  Pay any debts you owe
    down here or above

  Greet everyone you see
    with a cheerful 'How-do'
  and a smile from your heart
    that's 'genuine you'

  Make sure to call those
    who live far away
  who've grown remote, but
    helped you 'back in the day'

  Give a few bucks
    to the homeless you see
  Pray to God their souls
    from indigence be free

  Don't neglect to remove trash
    that bars people's way
  If you don't do it now
    it won't get done today

  Then when you're so tired
    you need to nap for an hour
  Pray your heart out to God
    Ask Him for more power ...

Kashmir-The Woman

Kashmir is the innocent beauty of nature
It lifted me above all mire dark and dense.

Kashmir is the divine smile
It gifted me a peace beyond all of my sense.

Kashmir is the sorrow
It showed me a combined pain of poverty, corruption and terrorism.

Kashmir is the beautiful helpless unmarried woman.
Whose neighbors are trying to capture her body not sweet heart.

Kashmir is the paradise on earth without dream...

They are not rich.
They have no car. 
They have no fat.
They have no dream.

They are not so-called educated persons.
They are not news.

They are struggling for existence.

They have not any exceed of life 
Which is poison. 

They live with their old parents.

They have innocent smile and intuition.

They created their poor house as rich home.

They are my celebrities.
But I am not communist.

Cry of a Successful Man

With love comes consequence
With hope comes failure
With triumph comes fear
With peace comes worry
With riches comes pain
With poverty comes envy

Young Lambs In Poverty

In this dark and dreary world, the urchins forced to toil

Their  body bared and tarnished, gain little sleep and boil

Tiny hands and feets famished, no love they had meet

Like young lambs for slaughter, were they forced to cheat

Sold away by father, with no heart but only greed 
How my mind cries, watching this heinous deed

And sighs, its a discriminating fate unfair.

Fires of Life

Figuratively there is good and there is bad
Intuitively we know there are high paths and low
Rewarding goodness; not hatefulness when so sad
Eliminating love, the thief comes to take what you know

And there are consequences for each choice made
Children who wander lives without a mother nor dad
Destitute families who’s last night never laid
Unless a miracle occurs their lives will be bad

So, in the course of  suffering and destitution
Come magnificent family courage and strength
And some how a divine illumination 
Causes a peaceful and caring restitution

And the answers come often at the end of time
But, looking back, They’re no more blind

Psalm For a Material Age

I sing to You 
from an empty vessel,
for You gave me 
my eternal voice.
All about me are lost, 
all are deaf
to Your voice 
as it flies on the wind
and none can see, 
all blind beggars
unaware of their 
deep, deep poverty....

Your beauty is everywhere: 
sunlight and moonlight and 
the grace of birds
in their flight of freedom, 
and trees standing tall 
as guardians and oceans
whose waves crest eternally, 
and Your grace...ah, 
THAT  is what holds
the Universe itself together, 
and in us it is 
the love that calms, 
the love that pulls 
meaning from death
and gives hope 
to those who reach out--
to You....

I Love Because I Can

I love because I can.
In a society that embraces 
those who have, not those to 
I am still able to share this 
I walk down poverty lane happy 
with a rich heart. 	
My calloused hands are all I 
need to create my world.
My happiness.

Amuse... In a world of splendor, I want to share thoughts.
To capture others with a creative voice
To embrace emotions as a writing tool
To ruminate another’s introspection

I am just a muse.
I want to be your best friend.
I want to enable you to write again.

Within the universe, are beautiful landscapes to provide stories to contemplate.
Why not ponder romantically and write about the love you found in Greece.
Be your reason to fulfill your dreams.
I am just a muse.
Think please.

The multitude 
In famine
Poverty stricken
Economic disparity
Just topics to theme

I am just a muse meditating ideas.

She Walks

Amidst the broken windows  
   The blowing trash on the sidewalks
She walks, cheekbones prominent
   Head held high

Past drunks, huddled against the cold
   Past the shrunken veins of stoned addicts
She walks, leaning into the wind
   Her step steady

Empty lots littered with glass to her right
   On her left, boarded-up residences, nevertheless
She walks, her love for her children
   Filling her tear-stained heart

To a bus stop, then a train station,
   Another bus stop, and then finally
She walks, to those pretty, far-away castles
   To polish her diamonds' futures

Truth is everything to me – 

I can forgive poverty...

even forgive wealth – 

but dishonesty pains me
eternally to the core...

The strength of Christ
was His Truth;
His loyalty
even onto the Cross:

He did not cut 
and run from Truth – 
His Word, His Flesh
His Blood His Spirit
one in the same – 

There you have it...

Truth is essential to Love – 

without it

you have neither.

I hope you heal – from no apology
I hope you heal – from Un - reciprocated love
I hope you heal – from the emotional abuse
I hope you heal – from being scared
I hope you heal – from no self confidence
I hope you heal – from poverty
I hope you heal – from the pain you didn’t deserve
I hope you heal – from being scarred
I hope you heal – from being to vulnerable 
I hope you heal – from loneliness 

I hope you find – the courage 
I hope you find – your strength
I hope you find – your selflove
I hope you find – your new beginning 
I hope you find – your smile
I hope you find - your way

I am thankful for what
I have and what I do
not have, seeing the trials
and tribulations of those
less fortunate -- 

thankful for shadows as
well as brilliance, 
humanity often lost in the opulent

thankful for the weight
of poverty, my soul bears

asking not to be kept
from hunger and thirst
that brings me nearer to 
Thee – trusting always that
You will provide, whatever
my spirit needs to soar with
Graces – Blessings to all!

Nobody Is Born Bad

Nobody is born bad
Lack of love
Lack of compassion
Lack of education
Lack of jobs
And lack of care
Drives people to take desperate measures to survive

The Future Starts Here

The innocence is transfusing
and overturning 
the goat skin drums
children of the mills,
children of the junkyard,
and savaging
and we keep filling them with
mercury, nitrate, espestice, baby bombs
blasted out of their shaved heads
and foraging

I live where angels fear to walk
Don’t ask questions, no one’s gonna talk
Another kid’s innocence is being take
Their thirst for blood will never slacken
Love is something only found in a fairytale
But those don’t comfort, when home is spelled H E L L
Left alone for days on end
Nothing else to do but play pretend
Trying to get lost in a dream
But when that doesn’t help, all you can do is scream
I’ve called the devil by his first name
His eyes are cold, mine are the same
I live where angels fear to tread
By the time you find me, I’ll probably be dead

Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day

I hope a stranger starts to laugh
As they walk along my way,
I will wear my nose with pride
For this is Red Nose Day.
Buy a nose and you will smile
As you hear laughter all around,
A gift of love to a child’s heart
Where poverty can be found.
A red nose will bring happiness
And help the hunger in their eyes,
To give the young a fighting chance
And put color back in their skies.

Me with you and you with me
You are what set me free
Together we can face our fear 
Our love can take us any where 
You make my world complete,
Together always you and me. 
Through sickness and in health 
In poverty or in wealth 
We are unstoppable 
But so loveable
Without any reason
Anytime or any season
We love each other, 
Care for one another
Together forever in harmony 
Once we are together things fall into place and we are happy 
In anger or in kindness
Whether all seeing or in blindness
Together we are strong
Loving hearts keeps us young
Yes now my dream has come true 
Now I can be happy and be with you
