History repeats.
Someday you will come to know.
Life is not always about keep moving, it is more about where to pause, where to jump and where to stop. It is more about feel the ground everytime you step the foot. It is not always about looking forward, It is more about looking back and adore what you learned from the bygone time. It is more about understanding of pivotal swift to stay in the track. It is more about silence than the nonsense talk with phantom hope for a temporary calm. It is not just about 5 days of colorful lights, it is more about the constant light that remains. It is more about choices, not how many times you breathe, it's always about how consciously you breathe.
Sometimes It may be more about being anonymous. Cast away everything that defines you, strip the identity and get lost in time, as the end purpose of hide and seek is to fine. Find your being.
Else history repeats.
Someday you will come to know something more.
Unsaid, unheard and unseen from revolution within.
If one mixed
Gold with bronze
Neither it is gold
Not pure bronze
That simple
Yet it opens to
The many answers
Nothing to say.............

Hold on
Don't tell me
Who you are?
Tell me
Who you aren't?

It's easy
That way
To know
Who you can be.

That They'll NEVER Have Their Father ...  
Say A Word To Them AGAIN ... !!!!!  
    
When I Say He Was A  ... " Friend " ...  
It Wasn't Like We Spent ...  
Much Time Speaking Our Minds ...  
About Things ... In Our Lives ...  
    
I Knew This Man From School ...  
And Clubs That We'd Go To ...  
    
He Was Quiet Smart & Cool ...  
But Was Never One To Run His Mouth ...  
Or Act Up Like A FOOL ... !!!  
    
These Words I Write Come From Those Times ...  
When We Were Young And groWING UP ...  
    
To Me He Seemed Set To Achieve ...  
A Life of PEACE And Being ... " HAPPY " ... !!!  
    
So Now I'm SHOCKED ...  
SADDENED And ROCKED ...  
Because He's ..... " GONE " ............  
    
I'm So Confused Why Would He Choose .... ?  
To Take His Life ... Because of STRIFE ... ?  
    
It's Clear He Was Going ...  
Through A REALLY BAD TIME ... !!!!!
    
NOBODY Clearly Knowing ....  
What Was Running Through His Mind ... ???  
    
You See ... SUICIDE ...  
Is The .... ULTIMATE Crime ... !!!  
    
God Gave Us Life For Us To THRIVE ... !!!  
NOT TO FIGHT And CRITICIZE ... !!!
  
To The Point Where A Guy ...  
Will Take .... " THAT RIDE " .... !!!  
Because He's Ready To Die ... !!!  
    
"Don't Do It Man Don't Do It !

You Know ......  
I Never Got The Chance To Do That Dance ...  
And Try To Calm His ACHING Heart ... !!!  
Because Like Lovers Under Covers ...  
    
He Kept His Pain ... " Well Covered " ...  
To The Point Where I Feel ... "Smothered" ...  
With Grief Just Like His ... " Mother " ... !!!  
    
Who's Now Become Yet ANOTHER One ...  
Who Has To BURY ... Her Own Son ... !?!  
    
What's Going On ... What's Going On ... !?!  
    
What Makes Someone Become So Numb ...  
That Life Becomes So ... OVERDONE ... !?!  
    
SPURNED And BURNED With NOWHERE To Turn ... !!!  
    
I've Been There YES ... !!!  
So Do CONFESS To Wishing For A SPEEDY End ... !!!!!

An Acquaintance In Truth But A Brotha' To Me ...  
Because His Presence Was A BLESSING ...  
WHENEVER ... We Would Meet ... !!!

But It's Also For Those ...  
Who Feel As If They're ... BROKE ... !!!  
MOROSE And In ... " THAT ZONE " ... !!!

About Your Ailing World So That You Can Start ... HEALING ... !!!
    
LIFE Has So Much Meaning ... !!!  
So ... DON'T Sit There Concealing ... !!!  
    
A Problem Aired Is A Problem SHARED ... !!!!!  
And A Problem SHARED Means Someone CARES ... !!!!!!  
  
I Wish For My Friend I Could of BEEN THERE ...  
To Keep His Thoughts MORE FLUID ... !!!!!!!  
    
And Say To Him ...  
Like I'm Saying To You ...  
    
"DON'T DO IT MAN PLEASE !"

What You CHOOSE Can ... DAMAGE You ... !!!!!
So Choose WISELY And Make SMART Moves ... !!!

Before You Find Yourself In A BIND ...
That Leaves You TRAPPED With NO Backpack ... !!!

NO Rewind And NO ... WAY BACK ...............................................

Coc' or Crack ... Can Lead To THAT ... !!!
So Choose What's WISE And STAY On Track ... !!!

Choices You Make Can ... " Seal Your Fate " ...
Or Lead To PAIN That Leaves You DRAINED ... !!!!

It's All A Game of Give And Take ...
Life Has STAKES Dracula CAN'T BREAK ... !!!!!

What You Choose Can Supply A Life of HIGHS ... !!!

And Can KEEP You Schooled ....
In AVOIDING .................................... BAD Guys ... !!!
And Feminine Thighs You Should NOT ... " EXORCISE " ...
Because They're WILD And Open WIDE To ANY Old Guy ... !!!

Who Has ... " Designs " ...
On What Resides Where G-Strings Lie ... !!!

So DON'T Be Surprised ...
If A Demons Inside Her Body And Mind ... !!!

See POSSESSION's What I'm STRESSING ...
When I Say ... DON'T EXORCISE ... !!!!

Possession of An ILLNESS May Reside Between Her Thighs ...
The Type That Lead To SICKNESS ...

You See The Stakes are HIGH ... !!!

Now That's If She's NOT Pregnant ...
See That's A ... DIFFERENT Ride ... !!!
The Penalties Are FLAGRANT And WILL Affect Your Child ...

If She Gives You A Ride On ... " OPENING Night " ...
TAKE The Advice ... Refs' Give At FIGHTS ... !!!

"PROTECT Yourself Boys, YES at, ALL TIMES !"

Before Hindsight Leaves You Resigned ...
To Saying To Yourself ... "How STUPID Was I ?"

NOW NOT All Choices ...
Lead To Noises ... That Are VOLATILE ...

But THINK About Your Life ...
BEFORE You Have A Child ...
And Make Your Choices CAREFULLY ...
BEFORE You Choose A Wife ... !!!

Now Ladies WAIT And KEEP Your Cool ... !!!
Of Course THESE Rules Affect You TOO ... !!!

CHOOSE Your Man And Make Your Plans ...
But When You Choose ... ENSURE You Use ...
Your Instincts ... And Your BRAIN ... !!!!!

DON'T Just Enlist ...
ANY ... " Tom or **** " ... !!!

Who KNOWS Just What To Say ...
To MAKE SURE He Gets ... LAID ... !!!

TALK Is CHEAP But ACTIONS SPEAK ... !!!

So Choose A Guy Who CAN Supply ...
MORE Than Just A ... ****** High ... !!!

EVERY Guy WILL TRY To Supply A GOOD TIME ...
But Girls You KNOW How The Story Goes ...

If He's Got GREAT LINES ...
DON'T Be SURPRISED When It's Time To UNZIP ...
If You CAN'T FIND ANYTHING ... For Your Lips ... !!!
EXCEPT To USE Them ... For A QUIP ... !!!!!

Choices Of Course DO NOT ... " Ensure " ...
A Pathway To What's GOOD And PURE ... !!!

But TRUST In THIS ...

Some HELP To Find A Path Through Life ...
That Helps You LIVE ... Suitably Equipped ...
To Deal With Things That Make Some ... QUIT ... !!!

When Life Gets ROUGH And They've Had ENOUGH ... !!!

BAD Choices You Make Aren't ALL Mistakes ...
But SOME Like REALITY ... Bite Like SNAKES ... !!!!!

It's NOT ALL Bad ... It's NOT ALL Good ... !!!
But What You CHOOSE CAN HELP You Move ...
Towards A Place Where You Feel ... GREAT ... !!!

OR ... You Feel SAD ... !!!

If You Want Proof It's Down To YOU ...
To Choose What's RIGHT And ... UPLIFTS YOU ... !!!

Or ... Choose To CONSUME ...
What Fuels DARK MOODS ... !!!

Choose What You NEED NOT What You WANT ... !!!
That's MY Belief And It KEEPS Me STRONG ... !!!

If That's NOT Right I DON'T Wanna Be WRONG ... !!!!!!

Time WILL Tell If My Choices Will SELL ...
My Soul To The DEVIL And I'll Settle In ... " HELL " ... !!!

So For Now I'll Be ... " SHREWD " ...
Take My Time And Make Moves ...
When My Mind State's ... " Cool " ...
Rather Than Be A FOOL Who's NOT Been Schooled ...

In The COMPLEX Art of ...

How To ........

....... " CHOOSE " .......
We all got to make em' .......

Less time to self.
We may be in a company where nonsense is entertained, nonsense is validated.
Let there be time when one could say I don't live my life to please others and I know me better that someone close to me, but this doesn't mean to be self obsessed as we are an independent vessels yet we are intertwined with others responsibly.
Invest more time with self so that one could know oneself better. Here we may meet people who know other more than they know themself. Once you identify who you are, you begin to separate yourself from the crowd, not concerned what other's opinion is, and will begin to see your authenticity being thankful that you are not alike. You will be comfortable and will keep moving forward.

Adaa Sayed Nov 2019
While we were making the past ,
the future has deteriorated.
When we think to mend the present
life has moved .
Perhaps whenever we are wherever ,
we are there itself .
Why think of a better future ,
when the past mends itself .
Tonight we have a moment ,
depends if we think of the night ,
where we'll sleep , or
of the morning's ring .
We'll still be in the night , till the morning's rise .
We are in the moment forever ,
there is not an option to live in the Past , or ,
In the Future .
- Adaa Sayed
I have heard people say to others , to be in the moment or to live in the moment , but , you live the present only , to live in the past or in the future is impossible , we are not talking time travel here , what I mean to say through this poem is that  , we humans live a very disoriented life always preparing for the future , unaware of the present . The purpose is to live and prepare for what is happening . We cannot let the present reduce to shambles, just because we think we are certain of the future ,which we are not .

Well ....
I'll Be ... ****** ... !!!
Before I Fall .........................................
  
Into The Hands ...
of A Girl Whose Life's A ...  
  
........ " Sham" .......
  
Saying ... One Thing ...
But Doing ... Another ... ?!?

RUSHING Home ...
To Watch ... "Big Brother" ... !!!!!
  
Girls Like THESE ... !!!
Should NOT BE ... Mothers ... !!!

Because Their Child ...
Will Surely ... SUFFER ... !!!!!
  
Suffer FROM .............................
Her ... " Confusion " ... ?!?
  
Come On Girls ...
I'm ... NOT The One ... !!!!!
  
Mess With Me ...
And You'll Be ...  

... " STUNNED " ... !!!!!
  
NOT With ... Violence ...  
Or A .... " Gun " .... !!! ....
  
But With ... "THIS" ...  

Simple ... " Wisdom " ...
  
WAKEY WAKEY ... !!!
  
"Rise and shine" ...
Face The World ...
and Do What's Right ... !!!
  
DON'T Get ... "Trapped" ...  
In ..... "Your Mirage" ..... !!!!

Or ... A World ....
of ... " Tarot Cards " ...
  
See Yourself ...
For Who ... YOU ARE ... !!!
  
Don't Do Things ...
That You'll ... REGRET ... !!!
Like ... JUMPING IN ...
A ... STRANGERS Bed ... !!!!!

Make ... A STAND ...
And ... STICK TO IT ... !!!!!
  
Instead of S P R E A D I N G ...
THOSE ... WET LIPS ... !!!!!
  
DON'T ... Get VEX ... !!!
or ... Get UPSET ....
Because ... " CONFUSION " ...
RULED .... Your Head .... !?!
  
"Yeah, but you,
were making moves !!!"
  
"So were you, which goes to prove,
you were wanting me to woo !
Come on now, did I force you,
to come and sleep, in my bedroom ?"
  
"No, but now I feel abused !
We moved to fast !
I've thought it through,
and don't think that,
I'm right for you !!!"
  
"Okay, that's cool,
but, let me prove
something to you,
we kissed and stuff,
and then we hugged,
but, when I said,
we should get up
you put me in,
a tight armlock ?
Now you're saying,
you wanted to TALK ?!?
It seems you have
some things to sort
inside your mind.
Take that walk
I'll give you time,
but, don't complain
if I refrain, from letting you,
confuse my brain !
Figure out, what it is you need,
then come back, and talk to me.
Otherwise, let's both be free,
to be with, who we want to be !
But, don't be playing, games with me
My name's Big Virge, not Monopoly !"
Life to me, is not a dream
Talk is cheap, but, actions speak.
So, stop your talk, and walk the walk !"
Don't kiss me, on our first date !
and change your mind, the very next day ?"
Come on now,  give me a break !
Such confusion, breeds delusion,
and a premature conclusion !"
  
"I don't know you !!!
You don't know me !!!
You may be right ?
but let's wait and see.
Let's take some time,
the date went fine !
It's not my fault,
you crossed the line !
What can I say ?
I'm a **** guy !
Who'll give you lows,
as well as HIGHS !  
Every couple,
has their troubles !
and sometimes, yes,
fall down and stumble,
but, getting up,
is part of the fun,
and helps reduce,
our confusion"
  
"Opposites attract,
like, white and black
I suggest, you remember that !"
  
"But, firstly you,
must face the facts,
about the things,
you sometimes do,
Then I can, make love to you !"
  
Those Are Words ...
On Which To ... CHEW ...
  
Take Some Time ...
And ... Think It Through ...  
And Then ...  You Won't Be ...
  
So ....
  
...  " Confused " ... ?!?
Written about a woman, who was also a poet !

So, maybe the confusion came from that factor, as much as anything else !

However, this was written with a smile on my face, when I thought of the CRAZINESS that happened within days of us engaging in let's say, intimacies .... !!!!!

A ... " PEACE FILLED State " ...  
  
So ...  
Let Me Ask You THIS ...  
  
... " What Will It Take ? " ...
It was the situation in New Orleans at the time, that inspired this. The pitiful response, and lack of any kind of urgency to help the poor, angered and saddened me.

I guess people should be thankful it wasn't the current president managing the situation, now THAT would be depressing !

Not that Mr. Bush proved himself to be of a more compassionate breed, in the slightest !
