I’m the nameless, nobody
Born of a nameless, nonexistent mum
And a nameless, nonexistent dad
In a placeless city
New in town and I don’t mind
To re-shape my mind
By a town that is so ruthless,
So thoughtless and -
Maybe
I am feeble
But certainly in a new form
A new coming storm,
A cyclone,
A cyclops,
A mongrel
Annihilating,
Devastating,
Decapitating your approval and pity
I’m glass, seen through and sharp
An undecipheral writing
Meticulously weird and uncanny
I’m a boy, a girl
A maniac,
A brainiac,
A pyromaniac,
A junior granny
It’s funny
Wondering why I’m the way I am
You sculptor -
I’m leaving,
Somewhere where I will not find you
For the bullied and the forgotten generation.

Can’t we find a solution instead of demolition, intentionally or unintentionally?

Everything is alright my friend
Now give me some love and trend
You're sweet, lovely and spellbound
I'm melting at around of you, I'm glad.

I never thought of loving someone
like you, writing love poems this way
Your feelings are helpful to myself
to write something about love anyway
I usually just write them for myself
but thanks to you my friend, I'm safe.

I became romantic to write for your love
but though I don't know what else to write
besides life and love or relationship,
beauties and fools or beasts or governments
That's not a headache if you love me, I love you.
If thats for my mind then my heart says I thank you

A summer of discontent
Uprooted families swap a bombed house for tent.

A summer of disbelief.
Acts of terror but where is the relief?

A summer of turmoil.
Mass migration not safe on home soil.

A summer of confusion.
Gangs, traffickers, corruption collusion.

A summer of down trodden flowers.
The tears we shed from the sins of powers.
I felt the need to pen this subsequent to daily reports of the terrible migrant atrocities which continue to happen as a result of the unsettled nations in North Afria. European nations have no cohesive solution to deal correctly with the influx of people. Their plight ignored daily. Countries such as Greece & Turkey are experiencing first hand the social impact as they struggle to cope. The powers seem at odds to deal with it all. Where is the humanitarian effort to correct the sins created by the powers that be?

The ... " Great Debate " ...
would seem to ... surround ... ?
this thing called ... " Race " ... ?
  
It makes some ... FROWN ... !!!
and ... Open ...  their mouths ...
about ... The Ways ...
  
" This Debate " ...
is ..... swept ... Awaayyyyy ..............
  
By ... " Heads of State " ...
and those who ... Claim ... !
  
That .......................................
  
"Racism displays
are minimal today
so, blacks who have a chip,
should stop, running their lips !!!"
  
Well .....
Like the ... " Young Orators "
shown in ... " The Great Debators "
  
My view is simply ... "This" ...
  
Would they rather ... ?

Blacks shoot ... Clips ... !?!
than ... use their minds to ....
  
......... " Think " ............  ???
  
A question .... when expressed ....
that ... SHOULDN'T be answered ... YES ... !!!!!
  
It's ... CLEAR ...
The ... " Great Debate " ...
will ... ALWAYS ... be this way ...
because a black whose brain ...
is used to ... " EDUCATE " ...
and ... " ELEVATE " ... our strays ...
is one who will be ... " Labelled " ...
as a person telling ... " Fables " ...
whose thoughtwaves are ...
  
........ " Unstable " .......... !!!!!
  
" A TERRORIST !!! "
" A COMMUNIST !!! "
AN UPSTART ... WHO ...
SHOULD BE ... REMOVED !!!!!
  
....... "HIS - Story" .........
  
keeps giving .... Proof ....
that ... blacks who choose ...
to ... " Raise the Roof ! " ...
when they ... " Refuse " ... !!!!!
to ... " **** and Shoot " ...
but ... choose to use ...
their ... Brain Tissue ...
to ... Air Their Views ...
on ... Race Issues ...
are ... " Demonized " ...
by those who ... "Unite" ...
behind ... " Racist Tribes ! " ...
  
It's ... NOT A GAME ... !!!!!
to face ... Race hate ... !!!
  
and now .... is ... NOT ... !
  
" The Great Debate ?!? "
  
The .... " Great Debate " ....
has .... " Clearly " .... changed ....
  
Osama ... Obama ...
all kinds of street drama ...
with the ... "Credit Crunch" ...
at ... " Number One " ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  
" Terrorist " .... Crimes ....
at ... Number .... Two ....
and ... Number .... Three ....
...... " No Energy " ...... !!!
  
No Oil .... No Gas .... !!!
No Cash .... No Bank .... !!!
  
No ....... Bonuses ....... !!!
The Onus is ......
  
"Diversions .... folks .... !!!
and .... that's .... NO JOKE .... !!!
  
Until I hear ....
This .... Very Quote ....
  
"The President has ...
Sold his home ... !!!!!!!!"
  
I won't adhere ...
to ... Credit Fears ... !!!
  
The Olympic Fund ...
has seen ... "No Crunch !?!" ...
  
Even though ....
Cashflow ... is ... low ?!?!?
  
Doesn't quite ... Add Up ... ?!?
  
Like ... Government Sums ... !!!
  
Their ... " Great Debates "
Don't ... seem to relate ...
"About" ... how they've ...
got .... " Empty Plates " .... !!!
  
When I see ... THEM ... Starve ...
instead of ... Laugh ... !!!
"About" ........ Policies .........
That Prove .... They're Thieves .... !!!
I'll agree ... that ... "WE" ...
have got ... Problems ... !!!
  
The type that ... mean ...
No ... Bonuses ...
for ... Board Chairmen ... !!!!!!
  
No Whitehouse ... for ...
The ... " President " ... !!!
  
No ... Number 10 ...
for the .... PM .... !!!!!
  
and ............
  
No more wars ....
where .... cash is spent ....
as if .... there's more ....
for .... "Killing Men" .... !!!!!
  
That's a ... Great Debate ...
I'd .... Undertake .... !!!!! .....
  
Non-violent acts ....
against .... Government Plans ....
  
Like .... " Corporate Expedience " .....
against .... "Civil Disobedience" ....
    
Debates like ... These ...
are ... Rarely ... Seen ...
Except ... These Days ...
on ... Movie Screens ...
  
But ....
Even then ....
  
Critics .... Defend ....
The ... Lack of Facts ...
These movies ... have ...
  
"So, A movie lied ... !!!!!"
  
How many times .... ???
has .... Hollywood ....
made things look .... " Good " ....
  
Because the ...... " Bad " .......
would ... "Dispel Facts" ...
  
........ " Societies " ..........
stick to ... like ... Glue ...
to keep the .... " Fools " ....
"Ignorant " ... to ... "Truth" ... !!!!!
  
When .... Governments ....
become .... " Unstuck " ....
who'll debate .... then .... !?!
  
The ... " Ignorant " ...
  
who've been fed ... " Lies ' ...
most of ... Their Lives ... !!!!?!!!!
  
Now .... that will be ....
A ... " Worrying Time !!!!! " ...
  
The ... " Average Joe " ...
who is ... " Gung ** " ...
Running ... "The Show" ...
when ... People ... BLOW ... !!!!!
  
It's ... happening ... NOW ... !
Some Youth are ... WILD ... !!!
  
"Running around" .....
Toting .... the style .....
of .... " Gangsta Clowns " ....
  
Guns and .... **'s ....
... in ... Videos ... !!!
  
How REAL ... are ... THEY .... ?!?!?
who get .... " Airplay " .... !???!
  
Another Debate ....
that may ... bring ... SHAME ... ?
to those with .... " Fame " ....
because their .... " Fame " ....
has been .... " Man-Made " .... !!!
  
Like ..... HIS-Story ......
Now ... seems to be ... ?
  
The Racist theme ....
of ... This Here ... Piece ...
is not all that ... it seems to be ....
  
Whether it be ... " Race " ... ?
or the ... " Exchange Rate " ... ?
or the time it ... takes ...
for ... Equality to ... Rein ... ?????
  
It is .... CLEAR ....
those who ... Orate ...
and try to ... Educate ...
  
should always have
..... A Say ... within ...
  
" The Great Debate ....... "
The Debate ... RAGES ON ... !!!
Years after I wrote this ........ !!!

Says it all really ... Smh.
paper boats Aug 2014
Feathers dipped in red
To paint clouds,
Voices tied
Like fences with barbed wire
Eyes tainted black
To shun morning light
Camouflage night
Hands on throats, broken wings
Hollow bones under beaten skin
Angry tears, and hushed beats
Trembling hearts lie dead on streets
Cracked, and bruised
Words and beliefs
Another day
Our defeat.
Daylight 4U2C May 2014
People diein' on the streets.
****** puddles at our feets.

But we could be a family.
We could be a whole.
We could be together.
But no one could be cold.

If we could live on an island,
no hate,
no guns,
no war.
We'd look back and wonder,
what was it all for?

People diein' on the streets.
****** puddles at our feets.

Gangs,
tempts,
nudes,
exempts.

We sit at desk,
eating or eaten.
we laughed at or laughing.
beating or bleedin'.

We know the truth, but call it cruel.
The cruel one is we, the blind fool.

People diein' on the streets
****** puddles at our feets.

Who shot the most guns?
Who then killed them all?
Who didn't mind a casualty?
Who could be responsible?

"Not me!" we cry,
"I'm a good soul."
But even if we declined,
can I be told where they go?
No one WANTS to die. For someone to do it, there will be an opponent. A THREAT.    That's what this poem is about.
Kaye B Anderson Apr 2014
Change is changing - the changes that we made.
No time for abiding by Human Rights,
When it means someone isn't getting paid.
Very short poem based on the deviousness of the hierarchy in Leadership and Governments.
Kaye B Anderson Apr 2014
See there,
Be there,
Hear there,
Breathe there.

Though you're here, Not there?
Pressure - to be there.
To see there,
To hear there,
To think, live and breathe - there
Pressure - to be there.
Unfair.
Pressure - to be untrue,
To be everything,
**Everything but YOU
Poem on the pressure's of today's society - letting go of one's true dreams and desires, needs and wants, to go along with what society has labelled wrong, right, better or worse.
