You have drawn the extra version card
Welcome to the deck
Introverted values
You no longer can connect

Intuition, feelings and perceiving
is the game that extroverts play
Opposed to sensing, thanking and judging like those introverted lames!

If you’re not sure which side you’re on
Or if you’re out there on the fence
Do you want to be alone?
Or the party to commence!

So weep not my child
they’ll be no need for fear
God made
An extra version of you dear!

Why doth the sky remindith of there?
The moon swollen with my love for thee,
Thy star doth twinkle for thee,
I'd bring the whole sky for thee,
The love I feel is bigger than me.
James M Vines Nov 2016
In a land where dust blows over hard lifeless ground and children cry in their mothers arms. Hope is a luxury and want is an ever real fact of life. As mindless hate filled people battle over table scraps, while the innocent and the forgotten lay in want. Despite the best efforts of the brave and the selfless, the help seems to never be enough. On any given day, people are grateful for a piece of bread and clean water to drink, yet we take these things for granted. So do not forget the blessings you hold dear, for they can be taken away in a moment by the hateful and the selfish. Eternal vigilance is the price that must be paid, and reverent thanks is what heaven requires lest our land fall into despair and want and we too have little to be thankful for.

Late night still awake
dont know what to make
in sense of nothingness i feel
much more for me to be doing

its getting dark now
still not knowing how
to make this feeling flow
that we never know

i would never be the same
until i remeber to mention my name
never thought to be same
when this feeling came

still thinking about it
never knwo how to make it
i know, i can feel it
that it the right thing to fit

i wish i may do it right
i know i have the might
to make this feeling right
and make it my site

like i never know how say it
would you like to mention it?
its simple say but hard to understand
these words to say at night

i kneel down and say
thank him for this day
and tomorrow is another way
to thank him anyway

Trading wants for needs
Compelled to complain of have-nots
Instead I thank the heavens
for what I do have
My sight to look out
among clouds & trees
My hearing of my babies
laughs and screams
My voice to tell them
how much they are loved
The use of my arms
Overwhelming them with hugs

These simple things
So often overlooked

A second to reflect and a deep
breath is all it took
Zainab Attari Jul 2014
The blaze of the sun cut through their flesh
Sun kissed sweaty skin and dehydrated lungs

Knelled and cried for mercy
The heavens answered their prayers

Loud thuds were heard like a roaring lion
Lightning struck like a shooting star

Their quench was put off
Soil's aroma spread; it rained.
Although I am not a lover of rains, but I am still very grateful for the rains today! Since morning it has been pouring and it has turned my warm walls and the hot air outside cold and blissful! So this is me, giving thanks to Allah for the showers of blessings. The heat was killing everybody in Mumbai! Okay, that is about how much good I can say about the rains.
To the rain fans – have an amazing time playing football in the muck and getting wet in the rains! Stay safe, don’t catch a cold :) Do share with me your experience in the rains and your take on it.
P.S. My first try at a fifty words poetry.
