Big boys

Big wave riders get all the fame.
Boogie board riders stake their claim.

Ocean swimmers keep the pace,
Slow and steady wins their race.

Nippers run out from the shore,
Youthful vigour, hungry for more.

Old clubbies on the beach,

Understanding our Vibrations

Understanding our Vibrations
In light of our understanding willingness
shall appear untouched by man, source unfolding
throughout our Universal plane.

We can no longer live on emotions made of
delusional perceptions, we move in motion
to our...

Who Am I

Who am I?

I'm artistic
But not an artist.

I'm poetic
But not a poet

I'm rythmic
But hold no rhyme

I'm inclined
But not musically

I can write
But I'm not a writer.

I quit
But I'm not a quiter

I'm a son
A brother

Stasis turns into panic

When nothing moves it makes a vacuum

No rotation means stasis

And no movement brings pain and panic....

A plea for help

We don't need God we need the Christians

We don't need Jesus to come back we need the Christians

Please come back Jesus

Please come back

I need you now my God my Lord

These Christians are so fixated and tied up in belief and fear...

Dear God

Where are you? Where are the Christians?

Why isn't Jesus coming back already?

Can't you see we're drowning and dying?

What happens at the next election?

What happens after? Will we survive or will we go to war?

I don't want war. I'm...

Dumber Than Driftwood Wishing For Winds

Dumber than driftwood.
Having no bite to their bark.
Like dogs chasing cars.
Done to stop when cars park.
Then run away when hearing the engine start.

Incompetent politicians.
Running to picked for elections to win.
But promise to swear,

Dreams Collide

Melodies of sweet sensation flow throughout the night

Wanting to reach all before the morning light

And while i appear to sleep my eyes are open wide

For i would not miss the time when dreams...

if i never meant the world
just as you said i did
what if i never saw the stars through your eyes?
i think, that would truly be a fate worse than death, my dear
for i yearn for you through all the years
the light left my eyes as you said...

I Object

I object.

'You object?
To what?'

I dont know that yet.
I'm awaiting in anticipation to expect,
Whatever you object to,
I can add to a variety reasons to select...
At least to one,
That will give my objection,
More clout and purpose...

Zero. Zilch. Nada

Incredible as the doing may be.
Many still have yet not to notice.
That revolving doors.
Boomerangs thrown.
Swinging pendulums or carousels.
Often experienced by children,
Amazed to see the first time in disbelief.
Heard repeatedly asking,

    How can we "Subscribe" to an author, so that when they post a new poem we get a notice of it? That would be a really useful thing to do -

      absolutely! Under each poet name you can click the 'favorite' button. You will then appear on their fan page and be notified when they post a new poem :)

    This new set up of poetry.com is a bit difficult to understand. No views are visible . views encourage a person.

      HI Anisa, welcome to the site! If you scroll to the end of the poem you can read information including: date poem was written, date poem was submitted to the site, how long it takes to read the poem and also the number of views. It can take a while for your poems to get noticed - one way of getting out there is to promote your poem. It then gets featured on our homepage in the promoted poems section and you can enjoy your views rise there ;)
