Oh Dear, Look Where We Are!

Oh dear, look where we are
In a world sinners in it
The thieves, the liars
And the alcoholics in it.

If it’s sinners vs losers
The loser like me wins in it
Losers fight the fate
And sinners lose their minds in it.

Folks from the heavens
Made me sputter and inspired
Who I always thought was mine
The fire of hell was burning in it.

I thought she was a saint
Because I was not aware
Of her Angelic smile
With demon ashes on it.

After all, everything here I’m
With my people who know my worth
Oh dear, look where we are now
Under the sky in the night
Broken shining moon in it.

Fate (Poem #1) – Sealed Fate!

If our fate is sealed
Where will it be, God?
Where to be found?
In our hearts,
In our mind,
Or in the horoscopes?
Or maybe in the poems,
Those I write?
In our soul,
In our beliefs,
Or in the cities
Those are still to be found?
Help us God,
Encourage us to be on the right path
Even if fate is sealed and hidden.
Guide us,
Indicate us,
Push us towards
The journey of honorable humans.

GOD WITHIN US (Poem #3)

On the mother earth
And from our ancestors and teachers,
Do you expect us to sit and listen
And believe all about your fake gods?
Do you know what there is
A demon inside each of us; in History,
The demons among us,
Will have us destroyed.

In this world.
Who among us could have spoken up?
Against the God,
Who continued living among us!
He granted wishes and punishments
Much the way He always had.
Very few noticed them,
Casually taking the shape of one thing or another.

GOD WITHIN US (Poem #2)

I avoided fights,
Avoided everything really.
All the while intently studying
Patiently looking
For the tell-tale signs,
Looking to find even
One other person like me.

When people challenge the God,
He curse them
With the label of madness.
It is all very convenient.
Meanwhile,

God can take the form of a swan
He can be merciful
God can take form in unknown colors
He can be anywhere
He can save someone
He can destroy someone
He can take the form of an eagle
He can take the form of a whale
He can take the form of fire
He can be the trunk of tree
He can be this, he can be that!
Do you know why?

GOD WITHIN US (Poem #01)

He grants you the ability
To forecast the future,
He wrenches your tongue
From your mouth, changes you
From monster into an innocent
The God is generous.

In this way, I learned
To avoid danger, avoid fear,
Avoid excitement.
These are the triggers that prompt
My wings
From their resting place deep inside.
