GET REAL JUST A THOUGHT !
[HUMANITYLOST]

GET REAL
JUST A THOUGHT !

MAYBE
CRIMINAL CONTROL.

WILL LESSEN
GUN CONTROL.

YOU CAN ONLY TRY.

CRIMINALS YOU EXPECT
TO WALK THE LINE.

WISHFUL THINKING
WILL NOT HELP THE LAW.

WHEN CRIMINALS
TAKE RIGHTS.

TO BREAK THE LAW.

TAKE HUMANITY
TO PASS THE LAW

YOU WILL FIND
EVERYONE.

HAS A RIGHT
TO BE WRONG.

THEY CARRIED
THEIR ILL’S.

HOW DO YOU
CONTROL THEM ALL ?

THERE ARE BREAKERS
MAKERS.,

GOD KNOWS WHO !

THEY CARRIED
THEIR HATRED

READY TO USE.

POEATREEMAN

SORRY HATRED
IS THE BIGGEST GUN.

IT FIRES OFF
KILLS LOVE.

THE SHADOW ON THE WALL
[yesiknowthatKING]

Thursday, 19 June 2008
Currently Reading
Why We Can't Wait (Signet Classics)
By Jr., Dr. Martin Luther King
see related
THE SHADOW ON THE WALL

The Shadow
of My Face
I Cannot Help

Yet
I Can Certainly
Help My Soul

For
it is Filled by
Me Myself

No
Other Can I Blame

The Reflections
looking back at Me

Like
the Shadow
on the Wall

For
it Covers
All My Being

Even unto Soul

The Reflection
of My Shadow

The Reflection
of Myself

The Reflection
of My Soul

I
Will Have
To All Face..

A Poeatreeman

DEDICATED TO
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

MY FACE WILL SHOW
THE SHADE I AM

YET MY SOUL
WILL COLOR ALL I AM

WHAT COLOR AM I
IF MY SOUL IS BLACK?

A WHITER SOUL
I HAVE NOT SEEN

FOR IT IS
NOT COLORED
BY HUMAN GENES

BUT HUMAN KINDNESS

BY HOW
WE TREAT
OUR FELLOW HUMANS.

A TARNISHED STAR

Tuesday, 13 November 2012
[51oqxhNkaWL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_]
A TARNISHED STAR

CANNOT SHINE BRIGHT

WHEN TRUTH IS HIDDEN
FROM THE LIGHT.


MAN’S SHADOW

CAST THE NIGHT

TO COVER ALL

EVEN RIGHT.


THE SUN WILL RISE
THE NIGHT WILL FALL

WILL TRUTH BE SHOWN
OR WILL OUR STAR FALL ?

IT IS UP TO MAN
TO MAKE THE CALL.

A TARNISHED STAR
WE WILL NOT SEE ALL.

HOW MANY LIES
BEFORE MAN WILL FALL ?

AN OLD OAK TREE
Tuesday, 12 June 2012

[OLD OAK TREE] [lady bug]


YOUR PHOTO IS BEAUTIFUL
I HEARD LADYBUGS ARE GOOD
FOR THE TREES .
MAYBE YOU CAN NURSE IT BACK
WHERE THERE ARE THE LEAVES.
LIKE ME NEXT YR 70 I WILL BE
AT LEAST YOU GAVE IT YOUR TEARS

DEDICATED TO
THE OLD OAK TREE
FOR THEY'VE GROWN
WITH GRACE


POEATREEMAN

I STILL HAVE MY HAIR AT LEAST IT'S STILL THERE(:
IT MAY BE GRAY AND OLD YOU KNOW
YET I STILL HAVE THE BARK ON THE TREE(:
IT MAY BE PEELED AND WORN A BIT
YET IT IS STILL HOLDING ON TO ME.

AN OLD OAK TREE

You are
a Young
Flower
I am
An
Old
Oak
Tree

You are
Blossoming
While
I am
Withering
Away

I had my
Spring
When
I Blossomed
too

Yet
my Branches
are
not as New

My Roots
are Firm
Though
the Soil
is Loose

I will Fall Soon
be
at your feet

So Remember
when
I Stood

I
Tried
to be Straight

Perfect
I Was Not
For the Soil
was
not Great

I had my Falls
Limbs
were
Broken too

Yet
I Held Up
When Others
thought
I Would not

The Ground
is Opened
I must
Return to all

Shed no Tears
For
the Leaves
have
Finally Fallen.

Dedicated to Naomi Stansfield
A Soft Soul

A Poeatreeman

When I was
Young
I Tried
to be Straight

I Grew as Life
Would
have me Stand

Yet
I Stood Up
gave it a Hand

I Thank God
For
Letting me Sow

I had the Seasons
To Change and Grow.

A Poet’s Note

FORTITUDE

Do Not Say
Timber Yet
I Am Not
Ready To Fall

Do Not
Cut Me Down
For
I Stand Tall

If
You Want To Grow
Cut
No One Down

Then
You Will Stand Tall.

I DREAMED A DREAM

[DREAMS]



Uploaded on Aug 17, 2011

I DREAMED A DREAM

TRIBUTE TO SUSAN BOYLE

KEEP DREAMING
HEAVEN WILL BE THE RIDE.
FOR YOU'VE TOUCHED THE SKY.
A TEAR HAS FALLEN
WASHED THE HEART.
ITS DREAMS WERE FILLED
IT FOUND ITS HEART.

I DREAMED A DREAM

If Hope

Was Dwindling

She Revised it

In all of us.




For Heaven

Smiled on all




The Moment

We Believed.



When She sang

Her Heart's Dream

A Sweet Melody

FILLED us all.


Hope at Last

Has come to Dream

It's there

For all who Believed.

Dare not

Nothing will be.


DARE

AND IT CAN BE.

Dedicated To
Susan Boyle

A Poeatreeman

My Tears

Have Fallen

Yet my Heart

Was Lifted

To the Sky

No Words

Can Touch

The Joy I Feel

For Her Spirit

Soared

My Heart to God.

A STAIRWAY TO GOD

[led-zeppelin-stairway-to-heaven1]
A STAIRWAY TO GOD

I will Try
To use my Words
To Build
A Stairway To God.

Then
I Can Take a Step
Each Day
To Take me
To The Stars.

My Words
Will be of Heart
Wrote
By Care and Love.

The Ink I will Use
Is Tears That Fell
Dipped, in Sorrows
When Hurt was Held.

The Blotters Wet
Stain
With many Tears
That Fell.

I Cannot
Wipe it Away
By Saying,
I never Felt..

A Poeatreeman

Dedicated To God

If, I Built
A Chest of Gold
Would it not
Be Better
To Put in Words.

More Precious,
That Speak of Each?

Would, not
The Heart
Be Broken
By Trying
To Carry
All the Gold?

Love
Is much Lighter
Yet Heavy
On the Soul.

Would it not
Be Best
If we all Cared
A Little more?

Than the Words
I Have to Write
Would not be Filled
With so much Tears.

Love
Would Hold Us
For The Years.

Seek and Find

It Covers it over
Where Truth
Can be found.

It is
Out in the Open
Lying under a Lie.

Look it Over

See what
You will find

It is Hidden
In a Place

Of Darkness and Mind.
