That the ones who preach

Isn't it funny
That the ones who preach
Against homosexuality
Are always the ones
Who get arrested
For having gay sex in the park

Funny, isn't it?
I need a preach,
Alif Imran

I need a preach,
I need assurances,
To hold me still,
To built steel’s hard faith,
I’m diverting,
Astray,
Starting questioning,
Belief,
And ebbing briskly,
My trust,
Hope’s dwindling,
I’m ruined,
I need a preach,
I need assurances,
To hold me back,
From this fall, I’m falling,
Before I’m shattered,
Broken and sinned.

Talking about what they preach.
Sibtain Ahsan Fattah

Friends standing on the beach,
Talking about what they preach.

Beers in a bottle,
Their thoughts on full throttle.

Justifying their strive,
to live a life.

Talking about the same thing in the same way,
but with a different take.

In all this strife,
while we seek for ultimate fulfillment in different things,
we forget we're preaching and reaching in different ways.

But that is how the universe spins,
Within and Without,
And I accept that it spins and spins,
even when I think of nothing,
even when I think of everything.

I have been asked to speak--to preach!

My good congregation, I take the podium!
I have been asked to speak--to preach!
Where are you demons, devils, acrimonious angels?
Why do you submit yourself to actions so odious?
Stand up! Do not allow yourself to be leeched
of your life! Do not suffer the unfaithful!

No! I will not allow my flock to be misled!
I will not stand by as these good souls are drained!
So, rise! Cast your burdens back upon the bastards!
Throw them like stones; let their sins be bled!
Who has had enough of being perilously pained?
Who is fed up with with all their dastardly disasters?

Now! Now is the time to undo the oppression!
Show them your anger--unleash the frustration!
I ask, who among you is without disdain?
To Hell with them! Let's teach them a lesson!
Our lives are ours! Deny them castration!
You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain!

I was asked to write another "sermon," type poem. Oh, how I do love ranting. Take back your lives, my good congregation.

Don't waste your breath,
Don't run your mouth,
I know too well
What world's about.

When rings the bell
I'm in and out,
I know quite well
My ways around.

Don't you know I know better
What's good for you?
You'd better know I know better,
I know the truth.

You've already lost
When you started to speak,
You fight at all costs
But for me you are meek.

Your ideals turn to ashes in a second,
Your dreams turn to dust for my ego,
All your fears have become your weapons,
From here and now on you'll know better.

Don't you know I know better
What's good for you?
You'd better know I know better,
I know the truth.

There is no need to argue,
I know too well who are you,
Another one who thinks he knows it all,
The higher is the rise, the faster is the fall.

There's nothing you can say
That I've never heared,
So, just every your word
Is for me like dirt.

Don't you know I know better
What's good for you?
You'd better know I know better,
I know the truth.

So, now you hate me
But soon inside you'll be the same
And you will love me
As soon as we meet again.

Don't you pretend to be
What you are not,
Don't you pretend to feel
What you forgot.

Don't you know I know better
What's good for you?
You'd better know I know better,
I know the truth.

Eram quod es, eris quod sum.

Practice what you preach, and show us you're not afraid.

Dig that fucking razor DEEPER into your wrists.
Practice what you preach, and show us you're not afraid.
Don't just scratch with a pin and claim to slash them.
Practice what you preach. Practice what you preach.

the way you live is fragrance
turning people's senses
moving people's feelings
..you stain white hearts
then bleach black souls
..oh yes
you preach clarity
sowing memories
and feeding obsessions

..don't take me
my freedom is real

y dreams have a voice, and they need to preach the gospel of BENT REALity.
Leal Knowone

Come on I need to sleep. My dreams have a voice, and they need to preach the gospel of BENT REALity.

don't preach to me
just because i lie in the same bed
as another woman

don't preach to me
just because i love differently
than you

don't preach to me
just because i'm not like you
your god didn't make us
the same
so why would you want me
to love like you?
