“Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. . . . It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more”. Erica Jong in How to Save Your Own Life (1977)

Never say goodbye when you still want to try.
Never give up when you still feel you can take it.
Never say you don’t love a person when you can’t let go.
~ Dons ~

Dorothy Parker, A Very Short Song
Once when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad-
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that was very bad.
Love is for unlucky folk.
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.

Charlotte Bronte, Parting
There’s no use in weeping,
Though we are condemned to part:
There’s such a thing as keeping,
A remembrance in one’s heart…

The Great Way has no gate.
Clear water has no taste.
The tongue has no bone.
In complete stillness, a stone girl is dancing.
~Seung Sahn

Refuge… October 17, 2009

Feeling like a refuge

Butterflies…followed with tears

Need the one; Feeling fear

Look around for a safe place

Need shelter to hide from the rain

In the heart there’s a strain

That’s a desperate, needy day

Looking for comfort all around

Stop running for a while

All that’s needed is solid ground

Hope, look up and pray

The heart just says:

God send someone kind

I’m a refuge;

I need someone to save me,

Let him come with the sun,

I want to be around him and have fun;

Challenge him every day,

All in a teasing but loving way;

His presence would make me safe;

Let it be here, make it home

And feel right, he’d be there to stay

I need shelter, let him be comfort.

I’m a refuge, I lost my way!

 

Lying Angel! October 16, 2009

Hear and cheer the lying angel is here

Standing up giving a speech

Touring the world, “the change is HE!”

Using words playing with them

He thinks we are all suckers

Take his words, sleep on them

Believing and dreaming again and again

We are not animals and we don’t live in tents!

We have cable, computers and internet

We don’t only hear what you come and say

We watch and READ the news EVERYDAY!

Yea it’s a third world and yes we are poor

But we are not dumb and of that be sure

You promise us the sky

Think we are now addicted

And taking in your drugs we’re high

No we are not, at least not me

You are a fake, soon all will be revealed

You talk about Peace when you visit our land

Then go to the enemies, and shake their hand

Give them weapons to destroy “terrorism”

You quote Mandela but you will never be ANYTHING like him!

“Prolonged detention” is that what you want to do

Put us in prison for no good reason or even a clue

For how long? (Infinity)… you’re the devil himself!

At lease be smart and stop publicly contradicting yourself

Remember we have eyes and ears with them we can see and hear

We still have brains we are not mindless gears

We think, pray, eat and BREATHE!!!!!

I will shout and with the highest pitch I’ll scream

Leave us alone that’s MY LAND

Petroleum or gold whatever it is

Stay away or as we say “I’ll cut your hand”

We’ll fight for home till our last man

Open your eyes we are just defending

We are not the terrorists…

Because of what you do!!

I am sure all the countries hate you

Stop deceiving yourself the terrorist is YOU!

Making fallacies and speak only of lies

Get real a child can point them out!

Watch out or like Hitler you will be

Making a world war, the most hated man that’s what you’ll be

Even your great land will soon disappear

I can perfectly picture the day

When?

I’ll throw my MIDDLE EASTERN SHOE in your face

(Just like the man did to BUSH the other day!)

All the arrows point to one man

… Yes that’s him. I am making a stand as of today!

 

One way! October 6, 2009

Life’s song played at the background

Light a candle to shine like the sunlight

The sand covers all the land

And a girl uses both her hands

To carve a crest on the side

Fill the sky with stars at night

*****************************

A farm house in a deserted land

A linking road made with her flowing hand

With some flowers and a bench

Two lovers holding hands

That’s life and happiness

*****************************

In a split second it could all just vanish

On the radio a trouble voice announces

The world is at war out of the blue

A girl looks up her life is doomed

Up there he is on a flight

To somewhere, she dies that night…

*****************************

Comes to life a new born child

To fill a single wife’s empty life

A light of hope gives her a smile

A bomb is thrown and before it lives, it all dies!

*****************************

Enemies shout and scream

No one cares but for their own needs

They turn heavenly earth around

Is that what they want; a living hell for crying out loud!!

*****************************

Families wait, all night they pray

A letter gets to them one day

They don’t understand what it has to say

Will he come back, or is he dead?

The words just won’t get into their head

*****************************

Holding the letter she’s twenty three

Seventy years of waiting

But where is he?

She waited her life away

Only when she closed her eyes united were they

*****************************

The past dies and present arrives

Building new towers from the scraps they rise

Old problems die and people start to live

It’s no longer a framed picture on the wall

From the window everyone can see it all

*****************************

A young girl by the window

The wind blows her hair

She cries and thinks life is unfair

In a blink her lover is ready and there

He’s in a suit and they unite

A baby boy comes to life

At the same window there is he

Like his dad a sailor; he says he wants to be

*****************************

What she drew is all symbolic you see

Change is not always to the worse; only if we agree!

Hand in hand that’s how it’s done

Without peace a life can’t become…

 

Equality! September 23, 2009

Out at the desert I just can see

In the darkest nights a million stars above me

I can’t tell which is the northern star?

The only one from home I see

They are all so bright they dazzle me

If I live at the desert how great will that be

But I just remember in the sand live thing that would kill me

And without people it just can’t be

Back at home all drama the thought just suffocates me

The children in the street running with bare feet

From car to car a pound they seek

Or the woman with her child and the old man

All looking around in a race for money they beg and beg please

At that scene people look and still wave reluctantly “get a job”

Where are the jobs someone tell me

It’s a third world country

We’re poor that’s what they say

But with all the corruption, how cant they?

Those who rule with gold is sewed their sheet

And under their feet servants bend and smile fake-Ly

With all the oppression soon there will be

In just I while I know with them I’ll walk shouting

In the name of revolution you’ll all see

I hope they don’t kill but we know the hate would make them blindly

With the scraps they built their houses a guillotine will be

It is all so scary, I hope the victims won’t be you and me

Because they might think we used them and got up easily

Be a helping hand next time, we all want peace. Don’t we?

Give the people the right to be above the line of poverty

So just like the millions of stars in the desert sky

We can all shine brightly and have chances EQUALLY!

I want home to be the place I long to see

I look down at the street

Do all the people have cold feet?

A young boy wanting to eat

A girl skipping because he finally made a leap

A man not a freak his face just got beat

A family in a car starting a journey I hope they would never part

An old couple still together but is it their last week?

Heaven is the place they all seek

You should know that what you look at you don’t really see

For just one moment out there they are all free

To stop and think again they can always flea

One step their sure the other with doubts they freak

What if this moment things just freeze?

Before the bomb is thrown or the crises comes

Before the land dries or will it drown?

Will the manic rule or the prodigal son?

Close your eyes feel the wind and trust that up shins the sun

A cure is discovered and the new fuel is the old bomb

The poles stop melting and no longer fear the rising sea

Play the scene again we all unite and agree

Have faith and do your part

Because if we, soon all the prayers will be

 

What can I do? – [2006] September 18, 2009

I have this feeling i try to hide

This feeling is killing me inside

Every time i try to forget

But his eyes, ohh…

I can’t regret

I fall again in love with him

But i start to think how I can tell him

He’s always busy… always away

So how can i tell him that i feel this way?

When i see him pass by

I then start to cry

But he can’t hear me

What can i do?

To show that he’s the one who

I gave my heart and all too
