Soo here we are I’ve opened my eyes to see you Waiting at the bottom for me I didn’t get here on my own Really I didn’t have much of a choice And I chose not to choose Tell me what was your selection? You said you understand me But, we came here together Where has that time lead us? Whispers into darkness Asking where, how, when, and why I did, or I didn't do on the way here Everything goes silent

In nature things move slow Things happen slow In slow is serenity In slow is clarity In slow is durability I am slow at everything Slowly slowly I understand Slowly slowly I think Slowly slowly I write Slowly slowly I work Slowly slowly l couldn't grow much I could grow only to be a shrub Deeper roots, broader spread Little recognition I could get They planted me Where there was erosion Stopping landslides and further damage Many grew so fast like a vine To great heights they could twine They bore fruits for their growers Who protected them From hail and storm I couldn't fulfill their norms Slow and steady doesn't win Just remains free from sin Faster the speed of throw The higher it goes I am slow at everything Slowly slowly I couldn't grow much I could grow only to be a shrub Pruning often they did Making the shrub Pleasing to their eyes Fit and fine in public eyes I am slow at everything I care a hang for them Slowly slowly I understand, think, work or write I feel quite satisfied!
Shrubs prevent erosion and landslides. In a corrupt system, competent honest people do exist. They face resistance. They think, act and move carefully and take the time required unlike corrupt ones who want to make fast buck and climb the ladder fast by pleasing the powers that be by adopting shortcuts. Competent honest people grow into shrubs only as they're slow by the standards of the corrupt. But they prevent erosion and landslides in the system.
DEAR PENPAL PEOPLE, insult salted the injury--- that was a bad day<
maybe wounds are sold do you mean that insult can't salt injuries to a pathetic fault? warn the poor never the guilt as it wish the idiotic I put the limit stepped the humiliation right out silenced like a charity drought now lacked it is yet still manageable killed in the **** core when tangible warn foolish fingers an incoming the tremble syndrome now secrets are whispered blind devils shrink in hinders a car ride rains a billion on a thinker watch me tested as God demands lost in translation for what a paper does and I simply don't understand take the gesture I can't for a billion pays you see made me squirm more like a forsaken sun in 2018
What the eff is up with this site? Why is it most people on the front page can't write? Folks just babble on and on... Or spit out a two line poem Which is fine if it's a two punch knockout Instead of sounding like a grammar school dropout And why do certain things get so many views? I can't seem to get more than two Post crap if you want, if that's what people write But they should give everybody a chance on this site So I don't write about flowers or blather on about paint So I don't pretend to be something I ain't We should all have a voice here, The good and the bad The silly, the happy, the lost and the sad So come on hellopetry, give gutter poets a try If you'd rise just a bit, we could meet eye to eye.
So sick of seeing the homepage full of crap poetry.
Life is a long lesson Made up of small lessons Some small lessons are big lessons Big lessons are lifelong lessons Learning you hold your heart Time is quite hard The earlier you learnt Lifelong lessons The better it's It's my confession It's easier to learn Long lesson of life
Life often teaches lessons of shorter durations. But we either don't learn them or forget them easily until something serious happens. Serious happenings give us lifelong lessons which make us understand and appreciate life better. We become careful, attentive and knowledgeable to perceive warning signs with ease in future preventing disastrous consequences. Small lesson here means a lesson over short period. Big lesson means lesson of high degree of importance.
You can experience God You can't understand Him Sermon by the enlightened You experience heat You don't understand it You experience electric shock You don't understand it You lose loved one You have experience of losing But you don't understand it You experience true love You don't understand it By experience you don't understand By reason you do Be enlightened to know it They've experienced God They don't understand Him!
Your words are like a bitter juice I can't swallow Stuck there, Hanging in mid-air I can't understand it It rings in my ears again and again But it makes no sense My mind is becoming numb from hearing your voice Like eating something so spicy you can't feel your tongue Like your fingers on the coldest day of winter You keep touching them yet it feels like their not yours Like not feeling a cut But when I realized it It was too late The cut was bleeding out It felt like you pressed a lemon against it And rubbed the salt in ~10/4/21
Am I going to say what I'm talking about in this poem? No, because I don't even know what I'm talking about..
You’ll never truly understand what goes on in my mind The spiraling that goes on inside Empty and full all at the same time When I close my eyes All I hear are cries Try to tell you but always stop Climbing this mountain afraid to find what’s at the top
You’ll never understand what goes on in my brain The voices that make me go insane Every day becoming the same Can’t remember my name The cycle continues Never ending
You’ll understand what goes on behind the mask The fake smile stuck there like a tack The voices violent songs Always on the attack I try to stay strong Only to prolong The day where I will see all my wrongs
You’ll never understand what happens behind my words To read between the lines To find that “I’m fine” Was always a lie That “I’m okay” Was just to keep you away
You’ll never understand why I do this Letting myself get consumed by the abyss But I have realized there is no way To keep you at bay forever
