Poetry : Sticks And Stones

Poetry : Sticks And Stones

STICKS AND STONES “STICKS AND STONES may break my bones, But words will never hurt me.” So they say, but I know is untrue, Because words can hurt just as much too. It’s not just the sticks you use to hit, That makes me recoil with terror; It’s the words you hurl, when they bit It hurts me much, much more. The glare you throw in my direction, It makes my hair stands on end; ‘cause I see the hatred,…

Poetry : Old Man’s Wisdom

Poetry : Old Man’s Wisdom

Author’s Note : This poem was inspired by advises from the elderly, what we here called Old Man’s Wisdom. Old Man’s Wisdom Mine not to lead, but mine to follow, Mine not to weep, but mine to keep aglow; No rights have I to be your elder, Neither rights have I to be your teacher. But friend, true am I in sharing these words, My needs that you keep on the right road; As a friend so true, these words I…

How To Write A Good Article In Fifteen Minutes

How To Write A Good Article In Fifteen Minutes

First of all, why fifteen? Well, why not fifteen? And because I say so. It could easily be ten or twenty, but the average time for me is fifteen, no joke. Secondly, the articles I usually write within the fifteen-minute time frame average around 500 to 1200 words. This is medium-length, which for me works just splendidly. They are not too long that I lose focus halfway through writing, nor too short there’s barely any point in writing them. Thirdly,…

Poetry: The Shepherd, Not The Sheep

Poetry: The Shepherd, Not The Sheep

Now I lay me down to sleep, But sleep won’t come how e’er much I try; So I start to count down the sheep, But they keep skipping away, so spry. So I say, in despair, oh my lordy! When lo and behold, a Voice says, Yes. I sit up in surprise and exclaim, Holy! The Voice replies, Indeed, and bless. I look all around and ask, who’s there? The Voice replies, ’tis Me, my own. I say, come forth…

Poetry : Merry, Merry Heart

Poetry : Merry, Merry Heart

OH JOY, oh wonder, ‘tis glorious day – may it lasts, See the sparkling jewels embedded among the grass, See the pretty diamonds dripping among the leaves, Truly, joy it is to live in this bliss! Listen! It’s the music of the bubbling brooks, Now gay, how cheerful it gives one’s outlook! But hark! The mournful sound drifting near, ‘tis the haunted cry of the remorseful creature! Oh shepherd, see your charge is in sorrow, Perhaps it fears for another…

Poetry : The Value Of A Friend

Poetry : The Value Of A Friend

DEAR ONE, life is not as it seems it is, There is more to life than toils or bliss; Great is the gift of learning all you can, Greater is the gift of a True Friend. A friend is a teacher of the facts of life, A friend is a helper in your many strives; A friend is a mirror which pictures yourself, To turn you into the better person you crave; But in seeking a friend, beware of the…

The NaySayers

The NaySayers

Say Nay To The NaySayers! “Argh, goshdarnit, my head hurts!” I whine loudly. I feel like picking up my computer and throwing it across the room. But then, I’d have to clean up the mess, giving myself more headaches in the process. The dread of all writers, the writer’s block. It has to happen to everyone sometimes, and for some it happens more often than they would like. There are times when I just do not know what to write about, or how to…

Poetry : I Wish You Were Here, Love

Poetry : I Wish You Were Here, Love

“Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do.” – David Wilkerson Oh how sweet are the summer’s days, Oh how delightful in many ways, With flowers scattered all over the valley And the birds singing gaily for me. My dear, me dear, oh how I wish, For you to share this glorious bliss, When the sky is so peaceful and blue, And the sun’s ray shining through. My love, my sweet, my darling one, Where are…

Poetry : A Letter To My Love

Poetry : A Letter To My Love

JOE : A LETTER TO MY LOVE Dearest Joe, Thought I’d drop a line to say hello. Miss you terribly in many ways, Wish you’re here to brighten my days. Had a dreadful holiday this bleak summer, It’s all because you’re not here. Rain’s been pouring for a week, I caught me a cold, now I’m sick. My mood’s down because of the weather, Joe dear, I wish you are here. My family has problems in each own ways, Between…

Poetry : My Hero, My Friend

Poetry : My Hero, My Friend

My Hero, My Friend THIS WORLD is a field of brambles, Of briers and thorns of life; It is enough to make the meek tremble, And the weak stumbles under the strives. Life is a test a human must face, To make known his worth in his own way; This is the life man has, The life I too, live everyday. But no matter how hard it seems, There’s always a place for to hide, I don’t worry when my…
