Freedom gives us……

poetry and the ability to make music,
you just have to ignore the discrimination in them,
Freedom gives us the poetry that helps your thoughts become real,
even when you hear poems that remind you of the hell we’re living in,
Freedom gives us soldiers to fight our wars,
even though they don’t always come back,
Freedom gives us faith to stand tall on,
if you don't mind people killing each other over religion,
Freedom gives us happiness,
and every now and then a glimpse of hell.
Freedom gives us the right to do whatever you want,
with some murders and don't mind the gun shots.
Freedom gives you a free voice,
if you don’t mind a war because of different opinions,
Freedom gives you the choice to believe in heaven,
though hell proceeds to make sure it’s all around us,
Freedom gives kids the right to be in themselves,
even if kids are bullied daily,
Freedom gives us the the right to think love exist,
you just have to ignore all the hatred people show towards one another,
Freedom gives us the right to believe there are good people in the world,
even when sometimes all you can see is the air filled with blood,
Freedom gives you the right to talk about whatever you want wherever you want,
just not in school as if **** and drugs are trigger words that might remind kids of reality,
Freedom gives us the right to go to school and learn,
just not about the real world,
We learn that ****** are only in the dark alleys and white vans.
no one ever told us they could be the ones in our home,
our neighbors,
our friends,
They make it sound like a fairy tale “the princess always gets saved”,
I guess I was just too broken,
showed too much emotion so they didn't need to save me,
Freedom gives us choices,
Fight back or stay quiet and I chose to fight back
I didn't need a prince charming I SAVED MYSELF, came clean as people called me a liar
Because I denied a little girl her ******* fairy tale,
Freedom gives us the right to feel powerful,
they forgot to mention how fast it can be taken away.
I am waiting for people to understand that we created hell,
which means we can get rid of it.

World gives you the reason to collapse, God said stand firm.
World gives you the reason to cry, God said laugh.
World gives you the reason to worry, God said have faith.
World gives you the reason to frown, God said smile.
World gives you the reason to be overloaded, God said share it to Me.
World gives you the reason to *******, God said I will be your legs.
World gives you the reason to get angry, God said relax.
World gives you the reason to curse, God said leave it to Me.
World gives you the reason to lose hope, God said I am the Hope.
World gives you the reason to commit suicide, God said Your life is precious to Me.
World gives you no direction, God said I am your Compass.
World gives you the reason to give up, God said I will lead you.
World gives you the reason to feel unworthy, God said you are on top of My creations.
World gives you the reason to be sad, God said call unto Me.
For in the end, God is in control.

He gives life
At that instant he takes your innocence
Born into sin
He gives hope
And in return takes away your faith in humanity
They say your born free
He gave us the power of choice
But takes our ability to deal with Its consequences
Gives us the love
Allowing he or she to take our breath away
Then give us the strain and tribulations
While taking our patience and tolerance
Yet our trust he demand
He gives us strength and confidence
All while stealing our youth
And leaving a bigger number at the end of every year
What good is wisdom if its carrying the baggage of age
What good is ambition if the goal is leaves you crippled
He gives us challenges that inevitably take our humility
He gives us beauty and talent
And in an instant takes our hair, teeth, and skin
But leaves us with wrinkles and bad posture and the hope to remain relevant
He gives us vanity and punish us the above mentioned
Gives us dream and sleepless nights
Let's us take chances but what is chance in a predestined existence?
Though we create art, music, literature, and monuments
He takes credit for its inspiration and crumbles what isn't in his tribute
Give homage or else
And no true artist is never prime unless there gone and buried
He gives  mercy in the form ******
And his miracle usually means escaping his wrath
Guess I'm ******* Hudini in his eyes
He gave us the vastness of the universe to gaze and only gave us a grain of sand to inhabit on his cosmic infinite beach
  Gives you a soul and let's you promise it to someone you love then betray that promise repeatedly by demanding its salvation in the end
Give you the end too soon after the beginning fades away
Takes advantage of your ego and feeds it temptation
Gives you indulgence to punish your self with
Then when all life concludes leaves you and your loved ones with what you were the day before your inception and the day after death
Nothing
So what is it you want me to praise you for?
Guess we'll discuss it if you ever catch us.

If life gives you lemons, which filter would you use?

If life gives you work, will you still look at linkedin?

If life gives you giggles, will you #lol or #hahaha?

If life gives you money, where will you check in?

If life gives you secrets, who you will you Snapchat?

If life gives you superpowers, will you delete your first tweet?

If life gives you nothing, will you be busy on Whatsapp?

And if life gives you life... will Quora  about WHAT TO DO WITH IT?

Time.
Time is such a gift of excitement.
Time gives us life.
Time gives us color,
and sound,
and feeling.
Time gives us anything...

Love.
Love is such a gift of adrenaline.
Love gives us something to believe in.
Love gives us hope,
and faith,
and trust.
Love gives us anything...

Death...
Death is such a gift of heartbreak.
Death gives us something to fear,
and cower,
and deny.
Death gives us everything.

But...

Time gives Love a certain span, before Love gives Death its end.
Love gives Time all he's missing, before Time gives Death its end.
Death is given the end of Time and Love, but gives them a gift right back when the time is right...

Life.
This is a poem inspired by the 2016 movie, Collateral Beauty.

The mother nature is alive.
It gives you the air to breath .
It gives you the food to hunt.
It gives you the plants to grow.it gives you the animals to teach.it gives you the mountains to climb.
It gives you the sun to see.
It gives you the moon to sleep.
It gives you the stars to dream of.
It gives you the seed to grow.
It gives you the feather to draw sing and wear as reminder of who you are.
You are what you see.
What sees you is what you where.
And you where what is seeing now.
Present is what is always there till you forgeet.
Then you create the future in your mind.
Knowing that now you don't remember.
Nature is you.till you live on concrete.then you know your living in cancer.where evryrything turns to stone.Meduza the ***** is dancing around the sun mocking the birds and stepping on the flowers.why.?
Nature is everything you stand for as you stand on the holy ground.
The same ground who gives you trees and plants.you are the smoke and life is the mirror.

"Mother Nature's Sun"
The mother nature is alive.
It gives you the air to breath .
It gives you the food to hunt.
It gives you the plants to grow.it gives you the animals to teach.it gives you the mountains to climb.
It gives you the sun to see.
It gives you the moon to sleep.
It gives you the stars to dream of.
It gives you the seed to grow.
It gives you the feather to draw sing and wear as reminder of who you are.
You are what you see.
What sees you is what you where.
And you where what is seeing now.
Present is what is always there till you forgeet.
Then you create the future in your mind.
Knowing that now you don't remember.
Nature is you.till you live on concrete.then you know your living in cancer.where evryrything turns to stone.Meduza the ***** is dancing around the sun mocking the birds and stepping on the flowers.why.?

The same ground who gives you trees and plants.you are the smoke and life is the mirror.

Who gives a ****

so I wrote another winer, boo hoo you twit
think anyone cares, just who gives a ****
I am just a grain, of sand in the wind
my pain is nothing and the horned one just grinned

yeah so now I'm bitter, my attitude *****
I'd kick your ***, for a lousy 5 bucks
its only a flesh wound I've certainly had wurse
I'm a wineing ******, I'll hit you with my purse

got pains in my arms, and I'm a pain in the ***,
had Taco Bell for dinner, and now I got gas
my stomach is rumbling, think I'm sick just a bit
why don't you tell me now, just who gives a ****

the Dow is down, my pressure is high
cholesterol is big, can't eat no sweet pie
I'm a no good ***, full of vinegar and spit
do you really think, anyone gives a royal ****

at least they finally plugged, the leaking of oil
that's what they claim, sing for me Susan Boyle
the problem with peaches, in the middle is a pit
if I choked on one now, just who would give a ****

yes I've had me some wine, and I'm a pathetic dude
my mouth can get foul, yes I can be crude
wonder what it would be like, to be Brad Pitt
I guess one is enough, like who gives a ****

tomorrow is Monday, so glad I don't work
in customer service or a grocery clerk
listen to ******* about the service they get
c'mon now, you think I give a ****      
        
I could probably rant, for more than theirs time
the jaws flapping on, my hands covered in grime
this year's British Open, no Americans seemed fit
it's all over now, and really no one gives a ****...

Education Gives Luster to Motherland

Wise education, vital breath
Inspires an enchanting virtue;
She puts the Country in the lofty seat
Of endless glory, of dazzling glow,
And just as the gentle aura's puff
Do brighten the perfumed flower's hue:
So education with a wise, guiding hand,
A benefactress, exalts the human band.

Man's placid repose and earthly life
To education he dedicates
Because of her, art and science are born
Man; and as from the high mount above
The pure rivulet flows, undulates,
So education beyond measure
Gives the Country tranquility secure.

Where wise education raises a throne
Sprightly youth are invigorated,
Who with firm stand error they subdue
And with noble ideas are exalted;
It breaks immortality's neck,
Contemptible crime before it is halted:
It humbles barbarous nations
And it makes of savages champions.
And like the spring that nourishes
The plants, the bushes of the meads,
She goes on spilling her placid wealth,
And with kind eagerness she constantly feeds,
The river banks through which she slips,
And to beautiful nature all she concedes,
So whoever procures education wise
Until the height of honor may rise.

From her lips the waters crystalline
Gush forth without end, of divine virtue,
And prudent doctrines of her faith
The forces weak of evil subdue,
That break apart like the whitish waves
That lash upon the motionless shoreline:
And to climb the heavenly ways the people
Do learn with her noble example.

In the wretched human beings' breast
The living flame of good she lights
The hands of criminal fierce she ties,
And fill the faithful hearts with delights,
Which seeks her secrets beneficent
And in the love for the good her breast she incites,
And it's th' education noble and pure
Of human life the balsam sure.

And like a rock that rises with pride
In the middle of the turbulent waves
When hurricane and fierce Notus roar
She disregards their fury and raves,
That weary of the horror great
So frightened calmly off they stave;
Such is one by wise education steered
He holds the Country's reins unconquered.
His achievements on sapphires are engraved;
The Country pays him a thousand honors;
For in the noble ******* of her sons
Virtue transplanted luxuriant flow'rs;
And in the love of good e'er disposed
Will see the lords and governors
The noble people with loyal venture
Christian education always procure.

And like the golden sun of the morn
Whose rays resplendent shedding gold,
And like fair aurora of gold and red
She overspreads her colors bold;
Such true education proudly gives
The pleasure of virtue to young and old
And she enlightens out Motherland dear
As she offers endless glow and luster.

A boyish smile, a frivolous response, lips grazing my neck
Put on a plaid shirt and I’ll take mine off for you
Never ever never ever never ever ever ever
let your pride win
and we can set to sea in a canoe until you can let me in

I’m a sucker for sad eyes. That’s the compassion.
Pair those with thick-rimmed glasses: I’ll believe anything you say --
And I had a puppy once, so it’s a natural reflex to fill the bowl with water and affection and treats of all sorts.
My heart gives and gives and runs dry and quits
My heart quits and quits and floods with isolation and goes back to giving;
giving
giving
Tell me I'm living --
square one, I’m a hamster
You know, exasperation shouldn’t be as normal
as brushing your teeth
But then again, we’re all supposed to floss everyday and I always seem to forget to,
like Well-Being in general as my heart
gives and gives and dries and quits and gives and quits
and quits and quits
on everyone else that exists

You know,
I don’t want a man that fuels a petty cycle as long as a noose wrapped around my neck
I don’t want a man that shrugs off pain because he’s a man
I don’t want a man that eats his feelings or drugs his feelings or explodes his feelings all over the bed

I’ll desire disregard
and not long enough kisses that cut off like a woman’s water breaking midsentence.
A rocket,
An earthquake
I’ll want a fading away so that I can feel like I want something
& I’m a sucker for freckles and hard rock abs and defined biceps.
& british and french and irish accents.
& most of all, a man that doesn’t need me, or even want to see me
all that often

the space to contemplate
Am I Enough
The waver between
I want to be Enough
I don’t want to be Enough
I want to be Enough
No, I don’t want to be Enough
So I can want
Want
Aspire
Dream
Desire
Live in ifs and buts and maybes, dazed like a complete and utter
cliche

I don’t want a man that gives me a purpose
I don’t want a man that gives me flowers
Okay, I want a man that gives me flowers
and chocolate and good morning kisses and his time

I don’t want a man that snores
But he’s allowed to snore
I don’t want a man that cringes at a menstrual cycle
I don’t want a man that lives halfway across the world or a man next-door that lives in his head 24/7
I don’t want a man that punches his pain through walls
Or mirrors
Or ******* or dickwads or ******* faces

You know,
never ever never ever never ever ever ever
let your pride win
and we can set to sea in a canoe until you can let me in
if you let me in
and I can let you in

I don’t want a man that won’t let me in
I don’t want a man that won’t let love in.
