Is
Perfection

Superimposed with self-perpetuating pollution

But being sustains all and won't mourn its loss

Clear as the sky

Untaintable

Delicious

Home

Forever

I am

The end is just the beginning

Shedding limitations

In spring reborn

A heart of immense power

Cares for all

No longer infected by the sick

For illness is a choiceless choice

That needs no cure

This is the good news

Rejoice
Jes Feb 2019
A feast awaits, yet we live off crumbs

A feast of the soul that is

For anyone who thinks their birthright is material has been blinded by the blind teachers

What is good fortune compared to a mother

And What is a mother compared to her embrace

And What is her embrace compared to embracing all that is

But this blindness is willful

Open the eyes that open the heart and realise the world

The space will fire up your heart like a furnace

Infinity, localised

Don't tell me of eternity
I doubt I could ever know
For the girl you see before thee
Was raised on touch-and-go

I only know a nomadic way
Of moving from city to city
My four years here will be my longest stay
In my entire life's story

I know that people will go as well
Friendships fade in but two months
Even family grows old, as I can tell
That the same people change under the sun

So don't tell me of forever
In a gated Hollywood paradise
An eternal feast and fanfare
Under great paternal eyes

Don't tell me of eternal voids
A perpetual nonexistence
A world with no light or noise
An eternal nonsensation

Don't tell me of eternal hell
A forever unchanging war
A torment I can not tell
To others whom I care for

Because, Mi amore, I don't need
A stagnant, unchanging world
I just need change, like sand into pearls
Or a woman growing from a girl
Just working out some existentialism.

It would be awfully presumptuous and disrespectful of me
To assume
That I know and understand everything
(For even if I studied one thing for my entire life
I still wouldn't even come close
To knowing everything about that thing)
Or that I could fully understand you
(You and I
Are two different beings
With two very different viewpoints
And for me to assume
That I could see as you do
Would be quite ignorant)

However

It is equally presumptuous and disrespectful of you
To assume
That I am incapable of understanding and knowing
(In fact, I already know quite a bit:
I've been studying up
And though I'm still a beginner
And there are some things I don't quite get yet
I still understand a lot)
Or that you know everything about me
(Again, you and I
Are two different people
And I see things that you don't see
And for you to insist that you can read my mind
Would be the very definition of patronizing)

Eyes closed, I clear my mind,
Meditation breathing, stars aligned
Letting go I begin to soar
A delightful destination, a feeling of warmth.

And when clouds fill my skies
I simply rise above to bluer highs
Because If I think of beneficent thoughts
I can change the world a lot.

And when the sunshine fills my eyes
I spread my wings and begin to fly.
Soaring right through trouble and despair
Putting a smile on my face with love to share!

Like the four seasons, we are all delicate...
In Winter each snowflake is unique
in Spring the blossoming flower carries much mystique
The Summer rain washes our soul complete
And in the Fall we renew our souls for all to see!
My daily meditation gives me headspace and takes me to new horizons

I don't know much of religion,
But I want to.
I am not one to be perfect,
But I believe their is one who is.
I want to believe all is good.
I want their to be someone who loves me no matter what.
I love the feeling of letting me just put it all in someone else's hands.
He has to be real because I believe in him.
He has to be real because I can feel him saving me.
He has to be real because I can feel him covering me in bliss.
"Ignorance is bliss"
True words because I am calmed by the unknown,
While it frightens others.
Because I guess I just believe,
And just believing I guess is Faith.

We live and breath off death, can you not smell
the corpses in your stomach?
The touch of worthlessness in your stomach?
Would you like to ****?
Is it better that death is wrapped up in all natural anti-botic free?
Is death better with food coloring to make it look real?
Does the word wholesome satisfy your whole love of life?
One of our lives takes an average of 10,000 others,
is it worth it?
The fleeting savagery of feeling natural?
Of ripping into ribs, just think you are eating a lung.
Nature also is starving.
Life is in flux but certainly the grilled chicken with olive oil
does not know that, would you like to see a picture of the creature you killed?
We talk of life being small in labeled and reverend boxes if our dust is
small what should we make of the animals killed and shipped all over
never named, life a cost to be minimized.
Where forests burnt alongside the coal for the barbecue
is it worth it?

A cow is to many what puppies are to us
yet we enjoy burgers and cry with the dying dogs.
Life given to cows for the sole purpose’s of being rapped
chained down and killed, a burger is a stomp of approval.
A carton of milk at fairway an hour ****,
heavily processed.
Some ideas have deeply changed my life and these are those ideas I'm not a vegan so this makes it all the harder for me

It comes down to this...

There's poor & there's rich.

Those with power & those in need.

Greed can sow seeds,
and his want, far exceeds
our power to retreat.

But some were once captive...
Took a voyage thru a passage...
Impressed, they spread The message.
Love's not a weapon,
But a present represented
Thru actions' boastful speech.
Give or recieve,
We all beLIEve.
And to die for this we need.
Iron & Clay
Holding fast to thier ways
O' how the pendulum sways!

O'how the pendulum sways.
War on Love on Fire
RainyWriter Feb 2015
I was born a day before 9/11
A Muslim by beliefs,
A foreigner by colour,
Bred an English-woman.
 
I grew up like any other child at the time,
Always quick to justify my religion,
While singing joyful hymns,
In a Christian Primary School.
 
I first paid attention to the news when I discovered,
What was happening to my spiritual ‘sisters and brothers’,
The west and the east mindlessly killing and hurting,
Tangled and bound  in a cycle of revenge.
 
For some months I was torn,
Unable to decide,
Who was wrong?
Who was right?
 
Those in the far desserts of the east,
Who had been robbed of their oil and land,
Betrayed by the west in a promise,
They had permission to be furious,
 
Then there was the proudness of the  west,
Who had committed many crimes in the past,
But that was no excuse for it to be justifiable,
To result in the massacre of thousands of men.
 
 
But now I think,
We are taught we are one race,
Humans,
Not Jews,
Not Muslims,
Not Hindus,
Not Christians
 
So why do we bring ourselves to the point,
Where all we have left our children is hate,
In our will we give them an eternal fight,
And all we feed them is bias and lies,
 
They will listen for they know no better,
And they will never forget or forgive,
The only option we will ever give,
Is to act upon what we taught is right.
 
 
So please stop the suicide bombs and fighting,
Put down your arms and guns,
A war on differences,
It will do more harm than good.
 
And all those children in the darkest corners of the world,
Give them the wasteful food and goods,
That you would have spent on weapons and destruction,
They will spend on life and protection.
 
Take every unique persons hand,
And make circles around the temples and mosques,
Give the youth the perfect example,
Of respect at its utmost best.
 
And join forces with the countries,
Who struggle to keep power in their cities,
Be patient and treat their problems as your own,
Because a hundred friends is better than a hundred foes.
 
Religion, united we can truly win
But separated,
We will create a breeding ground,
For a cycle of  hate and war.
Long poem about my frustrations
