Leaving Memories..

In MemoryImage via Wikipedia

I’ll remember you
When someone talks too loud,
When one person speaks enough for a crowd,
When people enter the room like a storm,
When insanity becomes the norm,
When I hear the hauntingly annoying tune of a song,
When meaningless conversations run for too long,
When I hear another one of those weird sneezes,
That make me sit up and go ‘Jesus’!
I’ll remember you;

I’ll remember you
For all the silly stupid, nonsensical things that you do,
Because you truly were off your jack,
You were the crackhead who was not on crack,
But that is what made you so cool,
Although you behave like a fool,
I’ll remember you;

And this is exactly why,
Although I may fail
I promise to try,
And remember you.

Poverty

PovertyImage by carlaarena via Flickr

They mill around us in noisy silences

Hungry cries renting our musical silences

And we shall turn our eyes away

As far as our conscience has turned

To places and dreams faraway

Hoping these starving stomachs have burned

But they remain.

Like ghosts of unburied pasts;

their hungry, naked bodies crying for help.

For a piece of bread in our hands;

But there are barriers in between

We, who will feed a dog, before we feed our brothers,

We, taught to look at them as dogs,

Dogs are better, they share

Us; we just don’t care.

I see life

Description unavailableImage by may the circle remain unbroken via Flickr


I see life
Thirsting, panting, crying
I see life
Waiting, wanting, buying;
I see life
Breathing, cursing, ranting
I see life
Seething, raging, recanting
I see life
preaching, teaching, writing
I see life
hurting, stealing, fighting
And all through this myriad world
I see life
Living and Dying.
