Poem: Robin Williams

Still feeling the affects of losing one of my favorite comedians and actors and decided to write this agnostic poem in tribute to Robin Williams.

Remembering the art
Or the many laughs
Beyond memories and life
Inside something changes
New happiness is created

We were better off
Intrinsically affected
Little did we know
Little did we realize
Inside this man
A mind so great
Marred by demons
Stolen by sadness

Poem: In Love We Find Peace

A simple quick poem I thought about and truthfully we all need connection, love, friendship and with it one has a better chance of finding peace both spiritually as well as mentally.

In Love We Find Peace

In all that you inspire
in all that we desire
we did not realize
how much all
was truly dire

With the folding of palm
and reading of psalm
the troubled mind
despite burden
will find calm

Find comfort in a friend
so emotions can mend
let love and compassion
and new connections
be your new trend

Poem: The Fires Keep Pushing

Today’s news is a poem that was styled after my Random Twitter Poetry game, I just went to News.Google.com and took a snapshot of the screen, then crafted a poem while randomly grabbing words from the various headlines on the snapshot.  See if you can place all the words from the image.

The Fires Keep Pushing

When the fires press down
a censor among us
depth questioned
where to live?

Owners of nothing
no stops for support
why live accusations
a game with no score

The surge continues
where will we go?
foreign mission in doubt
just a place to start

Poem: Cleansing Waves

Cleansing Waves

sunshine ocean

 

The waves wash; over me
I can feel the past deeds
and I am cleansed

With each surge; my birth
paper chains hold no longer
and I am cleansed

Life fleeting; too short
these moments only matter
while I am cleansed

Poem: Palestine Hero

Palestine Hero is a poem about a boy who grows up with hatred and seeking revenge for his sister and mothers death.  This poem is inspired by the events of Israel against the Palestinians but is not mean’t to judge and merely to capture the mindset of a boy who sees his family suffer in retaliation.  Children do not understand who started and who strikes back, they only know the loss and death of loved ones and fill with anger and hatred toward those who inflict that pain and loss.

Palestine Hero

I woke up today
sounds of screaming
echoing in the dust
and my mother lying
broken on the floor
like a fallen shield
over my sisters corpse
Barely ten this year
I already knew
the devil himself
saw his mark
in lifeless eyes
and crumbling walls
in a desperate city

like mockeries
warning leaflets flew
escape the slaughter
like there was a choice
when fathers found me
and I opened my eyes
no tears were shed

I remember that day
and my prayers come
with strength in numbers
chest strapped in plastic
a few devils to repay
my sister and mother
waiting now in heaven
