About My Poem

i hear their voice,
each with their own choice.

thinking they know whats best for me,
thru my heart, only i can see.

people calling people names,
because they dont play others games.

hate me like me love me, 
it really doesnt matter to me. 
i am who i am, 
life be damned. 
all of us different, 
with space in the mind for rent, 
thoughts lasting only a moment. 
writing what we feel, 
hoping to heal. 
sharing the happiness & pain, 
sheltering from the rain. 
sophistication many write, 
trying to win a losing fight. 
typing big words, 
forgetting songs from the birds. 
division i see, 
for freedom i plea. 
global warming a lie, 
still blue is the sky. 
rising waters a myth, 
people pleading the fifth. 
so many with a agenda, 
with one huge flaw; 
man cant destroy, 
what God created. 
there is no peace, 
when man is increased, 
& Gid is decreased. 
each person with a view, 
selfishly walking in their shoe. 
thinking you know whats best, 
messing around with the rest. 
your law is fatal, 
for all will fall. 
few will rise again, 
knowing where others have been. 
you might think you know whats best for me, 
you have no idea what sets me free. 
so keep your opinion & assumption to yourself, 
worry not about whats on my minds shelf. 
let everyone live as they wish, 
concern yourself with whats on your dish...

a selfish species we are,
wanting to be the brightest star.

700 million plus.
not one can i fully trust.

besides my 6 children.
because i know exactly where theyve been.

ive been to jail,
sitting with no bail.

ive been to prison,
paying for my sin.

ive stared at 25-life behind bars,
nothing left but the stars.

the tenderness of your touch, 
creates a fondness for your heart, 
its warmth soothing my soul,

this is how i am,
designed by God's plan,
a mystery beyond the mind,
so hard it was to find...

comfortably numb ive become,
understood by some,
my destiny, God's kingdom,
its where i came from...

bringing to you values of hope,
morals that learned to cope,

silence echoing,
screams unheard,
silent voices in despair,
tears falling bedside...

you wouldnt know,
youve never been there,
raped in the night,
damaged by one's selfishness...

destroyed is a young soul,
a heart torn apart,

she, is called wisdom,
her voice echoing the kingdom,
warning of the end,
beginning the new,
under the sky blue...
'Out in the open wisdom calls aloud,
she raises her voice in the public square;
on top of the wall she cries out,
at the city gate she makes her speech:
“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? 
How long will mockers delight in mockery 
and fools hate knowledge?' 
her voice silently screams in my mind, 
my thoughts trying to be simplified, 
taking away that which seems hard, 
tossing to the side life's low card... 
'since you refuse to listen when I call 
and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand, 
since you disregard all my advice 
and do not accept my rebuke, 
I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you; 
I will mock when calamity overtakes you— 
when calamity overtakes you like a storm, 
when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind, 
when distress and trouble overwhelm you.' 
how shall a person deny, 
that which resides above the crystal clear blue sky??? 
a hidden away voice that few can hear, 
helping others to overcome their fear...
