You should know better
Than to think you’re alone in this universe
You’ve seen breath come from nothing
More complex than fathomable
Human species shapeshift and roam
With inventions inexplicable
Grass, water, and life itself
Come to be
And people like you
Who all think different
And think they’re the only ones
Don’t assume you’re not connect...

Something speaks from beyond
Something writhes alive
In each of us
Something pulls and breathes
Beyond our touch
They call it instinct
But it is magically distinct
And can lead, lead, lead
To something in your core
They call it power of the brain
But it’s so much more
It cannot be explained away
It cannot be spoken out of existence
They call it the mi...

Know You Better
I know you will be there at the agreed date and time.
I open my screen and there you are;
no excuses, not late, nor disinterested, never vague,
rather switched on, involved, intense, passionate, reflective, attentive.
Called to the stand I find a voice.
You listen quietly as I speak the unspoken.
Kindly, you allow me to continue

Does a lie has feet or walk
Only liars have more than two
Don't listen to a lie as a joke
Then will help lies to grow
God will ask; why do you lie?
So get ready for God's punishment.
Me, you, them, surely will die
Should keep ready for last statement
Get back soon to the early pureness
And stop cheating creatures
Just in case you look for happiness

Have you ever communed with a tree?
The essence of all
Mother earths rich gift
Used your eyes, studied her bark, roots, canopy.
Noticed her position in the forest family
A watcher of the woods or an infant in the glade
Full sun or partial shade
Colour, shape, size, branches, leaves can all be studied
But have you ever looked deeper.
Looked beyond, felt her fears, dreams...

The wind blows harder and harder
Pushing him towards the edge,
does he jump or is his life a barter?
He screams and the world shakes violently
Yet his tears fall silently.
His voice is lost amongst the roaring of the ocean,
his pleas for help drowned by the deepness.
It shallows him up.
Dancing in the darkest current.
He's singing with the sirens,
Never again to see the light of day.

Listen to me,
I know what you’re thinking,
“Great another poem,
Are we done yet?”
But listen to me.
You have a voice,
Well, use it.
Because unlike you,
But listen to me,
I don't know what you’re going through
And I can't tell your story,
Only you can.
So listen to me.
I want you to look around.
You are in a room with...

I didn't tell you my feelings,
Looking for sympathy.
I know you've read stories
And have friends just like me.
So, I'll hear every word
And nod respectfully.
But, what I really needed
Is something that you can not see.
Open your mind, unguard your heart
And listen attentively.

If you close your eyes
to the world outside,
will the fighting suddenly cease?
Will brother and sister
hold hands together
and build a new life of peace?
Does a person, born blind,
not hear the teeth grind
as disaster, from greed, is grown?
That because he can’t see,
thinks we're are all living free
and reaping the seeds we have sown?
If you block...

Do you hear that?
Its the sound
of your beating heart.
And theres a reason why
it continues to beat.
So, don't hurt yourself or end it
because, someone has hurt you
emotionally or physically.
I say this because, I had also
thought about ending my own life
because, of others had hurt me.
Listen to me...
