"Today"

Today is a day of merriment.
Today is a day of wonder.
Today, the gods of new and old
Emerge together from their chambers of marble
To get a better look at what is going on down under.

Today is a day of ice cream.
Today is a day of laughter.
Today, the leaders of tomorrow
Sit in lawn chairs sipping sloppily concocted lemonade
Dreaming of a time when all is happily ever after.

Today is a day of fortune.
Today is a day of smile.
Today, a weary, lonely beggar
Watches passerby from a rusty bench on 42nd street
And has earned the right to feel worthwhile.

Today is a day of adventure.
Today is a day of motivation.
Today, two ordinary blackbirds
Rendezvous to soar high o'er the heads of human beings
With no need for a particular destination.

Today is a day of simplicity.
Today is a day of reflection.
Today, a closeted atheist
Says grace with absolute certainty
Her newborn has the utmost form of divine protection.

Comforted

Mental pain seems to last forever when you don"t know why.
Melting away within your cries just leaves you at that, to cry.
When walking down the cold busy street you see birds fly.
In your mind, you wonder, can I do the same rather than die?
In dismay, you reach your hands up to touch the beautiful sky.

Only finding lack of affection from the ones you thought loved.
Turns out they, too, fail in the most of such feeling of being bugged.
Not alone, but the feeling is unquenchable at times unplugged.
Just in the dawn of day, a Hand reaches and I suddenly feel" Hugged.
No more of this sensational pain, but of comfort that is not rugged.

~Samantha De Leon~

Heavy Hearted

Raising up in fear, fallen down to my knees.
I don't know everything and its caving inside me!
Can't breathe, can't hear, can't see.
Sometimes its not easy being all free.

Role model syndrome all eyes on you.
One mess-up and you done wrong too!
God knows everything, even what I do.
Can't run and hide, no longer is God a "Who".
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

Happy Birthday Dear Sister

Today is the day you were born 17 years, past.
So, let"s hear the sound of an amazing blast!
Don"t go through the day though way too fast"
Soak it up like a spongy form of an icy glass!
God placed you here for an amazing pass!

You"re my sister, friend and characteristically fun!
Yeah, I may not always be here for it, but let"s go run!
I love you, am proud of you and hope we stay stuck as gum.
Your heart grieves for a temporary loss, its alright hun!
Remember, I"m here too, we can watch the growing of the sun.

Joy, peace, love is my wish for your special day!
You are beautifully God"s piece of art, I dear say!
Don"t fret or cry, for Love is near you all the way!
Lean to Him forever, and He will keep you always!
Thus be tender, remain beautiful and grand if you may.

(it really is my sister's bday today! just thought I'd share the poem I wrote for her)

My Sister
My dearest Sister, oh how I miss you so!
Your absence is like the sun's gone down too.
Held in tears, fears of loosing, someone so dear as you.
Its been too long as I write this here, what else must I do?

Faithlessness has kept you captivated into your life.
As you deny to others of your being a second wife.
The Word can pierce your heart like a sharping knife.
Its as if your here is really but a memorized strife.

I love you my dear sister, but 2 yrs is way too long.
You've been far away from home, but, *sighs* your gone.
What can I do, what can I say? Please come back along!
Just come; the past has already been erased of the wrong!

I know, I failed you as the older sister, but please do not hold this.
My life is definitely broken by all of this. I can only change best, what is.
If you just see the lies you've been living and come back to God as His!
We can dance again together; smiling and singing like a blasting whiz.

Your life could be a refreshing new start of living proof of a true scar.
Leaving that trail is going on a new narrow road that's pleasingly far.
Don't worry, God will keep you up and place your path not so afar.
Just repent of your sins, believe His Gospel and and turn from those bars.
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

It was a dark pool hall, a room off the end of the bar, the lounge lights illuminating the green pool table and not much more, a dark green glow at most seeming to flow off the table. Just outside that cascade, though not in complete darkness, there sat the three men, and one woman. Most people would have described the group as "undersirable", though there was one amongst them who made of them a motley crew, and would have been fingered as being "out of place". Alas the conversation was dark - perhaps also a dark green, the colour money and envy - and all participated in their own dark ways.
"It's my birthday," an undesirable stated. "Been locked up 5 years now. This is my brother and his girlfriend. What age would you say I am?"
"I dunno . . . 25 or 26 maybe? Happy birthday, either way," the outsider laughed. "What'd ye get locked up for?"
"25 or 26 . . . I'm 30, mate."
"Oh," the outsider laughed again. "Well, you're looking fresh."
The brother and his girlfriend weren't paying attention to the conversation, too immersed in each other - or the girlfriend concentrated on her boyfriend's immersion in her, perhaps.
"My brother picked me up yesterday only," the undersirable stated, pointing to his brother. There was a grunt from across the table. "Yeah - 5 years, mate."
"Why?"
"Doesn't matter."
And so the conversation went, progressing from dark to darker. Scars from stab wounds were displayed, statutory rape was detailed, narcotics were traded and ingested, and then there was the business proposition.
"You should be robbing houses mate - while nobody knows ye."
The outsider laughed.
"I'm serious. We're not from around here ourselves."
Furtive whispers, an exchanging of phone numbers, further intoxication, and fade to black.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fresh air and a miserable sun beating down hard. It was early morning, around 9 o'clock, a pale-faced stranger on a journey to get cigarettes. He stopped and sighed, lighting up a butt he still had. There is a sort of hangover where one feels outside oneself, as though the lines are blurred, as though the mind isn't paying very close attention to just where it is the body resides. It was one of those days. No headache, but the sun was certainly a bastard, an uncomfortable sweat coming forth to meet it. The stranger started again, gazing upon a mirage in the tarmac as he proceeded. He shook his head and sighed again.
"Good morning", the perky shopkeeper greeted him. He grunted. "Lovely morning", she almost said to herself this time.
"20 Benson & Hedges, please."
They traded: money for cigarettes, niceties for silence. And then the stranger was on his way again, throwing a scornful look up to the sky upon exiting the shop.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Phone rings, goes unanswered. Cigarette smoke dances in a beam of light that pierces through an otherwise tightly drawn curtain. It's dark and dreary, colourless and tired. A man sits on the bed, an unconscious young woman spread-eagled alongside him. He tips the ash off his cigarette onto the floor, staring into empty space. The young woman stirs and he flinches, then looks away. She was attractive, no doubt, but there was no joy in that for him.
"Good morning", she whispers, still half asleep. He grunts.
A few moments later, the young woman is up and dressed, pulling the door closed behind her back. The man is still sitting there, smoking cigarettes. He stares into empty space.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's late, 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning, and two men are walking down a desolated alley, eyes wide and jaws clenched. They stop outside a caravan.
"Just be quiet inside here," one says to the other. The other nods, grunts.
The caravan is a mess, filth stacked on top of filth, three men sitting on dilapidated furniture in front of an upside down keg in a kitchen sink.
"Take a drink," the newcomers are instructed, and they fish dirty glasses from underneath the keg and bring forth a stream to fill them with the end of a fork.
A white powder is passed from one hand to another; one man leaves with a considerable blade in his hands, but not before asking does anyone know where he can find a rope; a shout is bellowed from a room down the hall; another man takes considerable offense upon the utterance of the word "bastard"; and the two men decide it's time to leave.
There is no memory outside of that. There never was. The place and being sprung forth from the void unattended, then sank back into it when the deed was done. The miserable sun beat down the next morning.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"She has the child in a plastic container from the Chinese at home. Some pills she got off the internet." The speaker was a giant, his front teeth as black as coal. "It's not helping. I nearly killed her."
A quiet man sat across from him, a bottle of whiskey loosely in his hand.
"And this fellow with the whiskey," the giant broke out with a miserable laugh. "Paul, we have to get out of here."
"Come on." And the two men left with their drug and alcohol counselor, leaving his roommate behind.
"Happy birthday", the man with the whiskey said, seemingly to himself.

GCL, it's interesting that your sister opted for polygamy, obviously something to do with an absurdity that she feels in what your looney father has been preaching, trying to deal with that absurdity in loving the other side of the coin (Islamic tradition). A bit of advice: she's never "coming back" to your God and His. She's already there, whether you realise it or not.

jat93, I hope you like the rewrite for old times, lol. It's all a joke D:

Your writings are very interesting.

And *puts head down then lifts up and blinks back the tears and swallows hard to clear throat* that hurts... She's my sister... Maybe she never will come back and what not, but that will never change of her being my sister and loving her anyways... You just don't understand... Thanks for being cold-hearted... *walks away to hide face filled with tears flowing down* ...

A Cry Out

A confused mind blurred with vision.
Can't seem to find my way back to the kitchen.
I feel my body tremble at this rage of tension.
Its hurting me inside because of its invention.
I wanna go and let be as a new form of transition.
Flowing through the street as some sorta expedition.
No I'm not hating on myself in any way, but imposition.
I feel failed inside out without any complication.

My heart is weaker than it used to be.
I hear my name called as if I'm someone special to see.
If people looked inside, they'd be blown by the inner "me".
Tears hit my cheeks, as I notice some say, Who is she?
Tryna hide my life; not worthy to hear "looking up to you from we".
God sees in this broken sinful heart and I need to cling only to He!
Life ain't all about the beauty of fleeting glee.
Chains of sin feel pressed down, and all I know is I wanna be FREE!

Tempted in so many different ways.
Its like a bird flying and sees food far away's.
God, please, hear me now, before I turn by sways.
I can't do this alone by any means of my doings, I prays.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, as you continue the days.
Rest my soul as if I'm on a blissful sight of bays.
This spirit can be uplifted once more with all the may's.
Your will, O Lord, so I seek, but forever that pays.
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

What to do...

Marriage is a great idea so much in mind.
I wonder though, is it really for me?
Been here waiting around, with no one to find.
Or maybe its that, I don't really, see?
Could be that I'm being an impatient hind.
I know God has a plan already to be.
Just, seems like He's saying, "No, you're single."
Although, I don't mind at all, just was-- "hope".
Nah, I ain't the type to just go and mingle.
Life is crazy of things that could seem like dope.
Its like I'm ina circle headin for a gloomy dingle.
Uncertain, as to whether I remain or lope?

What are Thee...?

What art thee, but a vague memory.
How beith thou mine, if I consent not?
--Tis be no love of me, but fear from me.
Mind of distraught, confuseth mine heart.
Must I concede of this? Or runneth away?
Sorroweth tears fill mine eyes...
--Thus, why art thou here?
Thy intent may be of grand, but faileth yet.
Convinceth me, mine heart, if thou be true indeed!
Unveil mine eyes from great distress thereof;
Or leaveth me be, for thy sake of distrust.
Canst define love if thou not show forth it.
Forevermore, alone shalt mine heart remain!
I prayeth for none but peaceful soul, everlasting!

Well, for a poetry competition at my school, I wrote this:

Cogito Ergo Sum

I am not my materiality.
Not my palpability within palpation.
Not my tangibility within tangibleness.
Not my substantiality within substantialness.
Cogito Ergo Sum.

I am not my perspicacity.
Nor the tranquil tide, crashing against the charming coast.
Nor the irate inferno scorching savagely in concrete corporeality.
Nor the tender touch of a mother to her child.
Cogito Ergo Sum.

I am not my sentiment.
Not like my emotions, irresolute in its guise.
Not like the vicissitudes of the varying seasons.
Not like the promenade through life, with no certainty.
Cogito Ergo Sum.

I am not my ostentatiousness.
No matter the eyes which eerily stare.
No matter the chains of opinions forcedly thrust on me.
No matter the vain visions of me created by the vox populi.
Cogito Ergo Sum.

But what I am is the aptitude to apprehend.
The dexterity to discern.
The potentiality to ponder.
The capacity for cognition.
I think, therefore, I am.

Cogito, Ergo Sum.

How Long?

How long must we wait!
How long will this pain last?
How long must our tears hide!
How long will this sorrow stay?
How long must we faint away!
How long will this knife sting our hearts?
How long must we strive to stay alive!
How long will this secret ever hold?
How long must our hearts remain cold!
How long will this remain astray?
How long must we pretend to cray!
How long will walls come crumbling down?
How long must we push away sudden frown!

Must and will be long enough ... The end...
