Truth
by JLSPub.
The truth is in the whole conception.Tangled within a myrid of complex connections.A being-becoming is what it isn't.The basis of opposition & all difference.It's just that, that makes it significant. To find the meaning in becoming transcendent.Seek the truth in what is or isn't.A principle of contrast, exclusion, & association.Consistency & the avoidance of contradiction.Maintain continuity…

Wisdom
by JLSPub.
Solomon said, "The commandment  is a lamp.The law a light, and instruction a way of life." Yet wisdom in the scriptures speak.To a darkened world and the gnashing of teeth.Is there no peace, no place of retreat? The cosmos the wise men say.Is based on a confusion of fate.A misunderstanding of love and hate. Justice is blind and karma…

High hopes , broken dreams
by Fr3shPrinc3
  Lost in this world with nothing bad memories and no happy endings  Looking in the mirror my mind begins to bend into a different fear The fear of being alone and unheard  Listening to music usually thinking the lyrics would make me feel better Never the less my reflection is horrific  Toxic to the mind  As each tear is a lesson Knowing…

Soldier
by Antoine Allen
Battle after battle,a little more of my innocence was lost,My machine gun continues to rattle,showing the enemy who's boss,cutting through them like cattle,Blood stains the snow and frost.I've won the good fight time and time again,but the war will not end.Ghosts of those who died,haunts me deep inside.Each week they speak to me,from beyond the…
