          World's End
          =================

          Umpires lose control;
          A head runs amok;
          Challenge to game rules;
          Foul, umpires whistle.

          Penalty awarded, refuted;
          New power emerges;
          Tussle for the imperialist lion;
          Nuclear cyclone molds winds of war.

          Alliances, propaganda, trade tackles;
          Heavenly spies fill the skies;
          Heat descend, flares tempers;
          Embassy castrations the norm.

          Drums of war and conquest;
          Winds stronger, temperature of stroke;
          Powers lock horn, earth jitters;
          Only heavens know the Armageddon

          World of Peace
          =================

          Milk and honey, bread and butter,
          Jingles of peace and tranquility;
          Dominance, oppression, drums of war;
          Threads between joy and grief,
          In a world of strife and struggles.

          Energies abound in mankind;
          Fine lines between good and evil;
          God's love and barbarism,
          Of His image and predation;
          Two way or selfish one lane road.

          Blood shed, of the beast;
          War drums, echoes of the wild;
          Respect, love, cushions of peace;
          Peace only silencer of nuclear doom;
          Doom yes, nuke threat abound, alarming.

          People envy, nations pride;
          Race, nationality, of superiority to the sick;
          Gun powder, nuke bomb, for control;
          Doom seeds, no other, naked truth;
          Love and prosperity, reign of world peace.

          Endless Love
          =================

          Divine unending love;
          Heaven high, earthly wide;
          On a 'plus' reinforced;
          Through betrayal, agony and death.

          Life hacked away, spirit stronger;
          Death glorified from resurrection;
          Earthly freedom from anger above;
          Redemption for all that dwell.

          Endless love, ever unfolding;
          Wondrous, bountiful, everlasting,
          In loops of love and peace chain;
          Earth's engine in watts of mega-love.

          A Star
          =================

          What is this brilliant silver in the night?,
          Illuminating our otherwise plain black sky?,
          What is this light that shines so bravely beside the moon?,
          Radiating a calm in the still black night.

          Can you lean down a little way,
          So I can reach up and touch you?,
          Will you give me the pleasure of knowing
          That I reached up for you without fail?

          But if you won't, just let me dream,
          Let me listen to the palpitations of my heart,
          And measure your distance from this earth,
          For far away you seem, but who knows,
          I could fly and soar the heights to you.

          Thus, I climb and sweat, I dream and bet,
          Like others around me both past and present,
          Who spent their days reaching for a star,
          I reach for your heights through the unknown,
          Through thick and thorn, through hope unworn.

          Am I?
          =================

          My heart is like a river,
          From which flows forth waves unknown,
          My thoughts like the wind,
          Racing through the shores of time.

          My light is in my eyes,
          By which I perceive all things,
          And my utterance is my tongue,
          From which I speak forth good or evil.

          But by what do I know I'm a person?,
          And through what must I judge my being?,
          To create an end of perfection,
          Through a means that's not short of divine.

          Well, I know that God gave me a mind to reason,
          To control all my thoughts and emotions,
          So if I reject this wondrous gift, and put myself to shame;
          I think not, therefore, who am I?

          Despair
          =================

          As I sink beneath the bottomless depths,
          My soul's journey so unknown,
          Lifting my eyes upward, I search anew,
          For a ray of light, a beam of hope.

          Beyond the shadows of this earthly grave,
          A hollow space with tears and thorns,
          I faintly hear, O yes I can, a voice so Sweet and full of care,
          But who would comfort a desperate child?.

          The world around me stretches so wide,
          From shore to shore, stretching like an Endless sea.
          So alike are we to fishes in it's depths,
          That writhe, and swim, that fight and bite.

          Here, I pause to consider;
          Who can it be that brings me hope?,
          Who sings so sweetly in this forlorn place?,
          To keep me from sinking in a sinking world.

          Wait!, I hear a voice so clearly say, “Child”,
          I am he who made you and made your world,
          Love will ease your path.
          I hold you secure, you cannot fall.”
          I see the hope, the very life of man,
          Born yet anew in these few words.

          Milwaukee
          =================

          Mill walk the journey to fun and more;
          Great city flowing with best brews;
          Miller brews among others with exotic tastes;
          Mill walk it, the Milwaukee tour, city of attractions.

          Mill walk to home of Harley Davidson,
          City of climax of two-wheel technology;
          Founding landmark of the great Harley riders;
          Ride Home of Harley riders' festivities.

          Mill walk to fun with finest dishes,
          At the city of festivals, finest restaurants;
          Lake front the great lakes in Milwaukee;
          Mill walk it for everlasting experience.

          Child Soldiers
          =================

          Heavens cry, mothers bemoan;
          Father and son trade hot metals;
          Nations slug out, children at front;
          Young minds dance the limbo.

          Munition, wars, as toy games;
          Battle field as play grounds;
          Bullets blow the whistle;
          Trenches shield blind shots.

          Murder tutorials the course;
          Predation, vandalism, an honor;
          Grades in white stripes;
          Nation wastes her rising suns.

          Knowing Him Now
          ========================

          Years of opportunity;
          Decades unfolding;
          Disciples up the task;
          No fees to believe in Him.

          First day in His glory;
          Faithfuls stand on Knees;
          Gates unguarded, unfettered;
          No fees to join flock.

          We march six feet down ;
          Now or never alive,
          Answer salvation call;
          Not in casket by altar.

          A Heart of love
          ===================

          Everyone's heart is full of love
          But you have to nurture it.
          You have to explore it,
          You have to grow it.
          You have to maintain it,

          You have to keep it alive.
          Then you will start making a difference in the world.
          We all have the potential of loving.

          Our heart is full of love when we smile.
          Our heart is full of love when we share.
          Our heart is full of love when we visit.
          Our heart is full of love when we talk.
          Our heart is full of love when we praise.

          Our heart is full of love
          When we make time for each other.
          All this makes life enjoyable,
          Wonderful, and most especially,
          A better world for us all.

          Madness & Vultures' Feast
          ==================================

          In Europe it started big and massive;
          Great wars, great loses, great feasts, 3Gs;
          Human madness, mankind's zealousness;
          We killed, we maimed, we polluted;
          The air stenched, vultures rejoiced our madness.

          Munition sounds, heavenly jet bombardments;
          Destructions on earth, lives hacked away;
          We fool, vultures feast and bury loved ones;
          The air smell, bones criss-cross the land;
          Warriors and people perish, senseless wars.

          Whole wide earth besieged with 3Gs;
          Wars, loses, senseless feasts, feasts on lives;
          Asia arms, Mid E. rocks, Africa fight, Europe alert;
          Vultures bury, grow on flesh, exhume as feces;
          Bones criss-cross the land, pathetic signs of R.I.P.

          Oiled To Foolishness
          ===========================

          Drinks and broke;
          Gambles away, violent home;
          Home abused, neglected;
          Comparable analog.

          All over the world;
          Worst in Africa;
          Oil boom, human nightmare;
          Nation suffocates;

          Sold in barrels;
          Accounted in margins;
          Pockets full, treasury dry;
          Loot 'Swissed';

          Ethnic bickering;
          Resource control fumes;
          Gun barrels hold unity;
          Nation in coma;

          Gravely deep sleep;
          Angels hover above,
          For nations requiem mass;
          Oiled to foolishness?

          Longevity
          =============

          Chemical war heads on shelves;
          Preservatives the reactors;
          Dine food that spoil;
          Bunker life with nature grown;
          Living to the maximum.

          Bite as can cushion;
          Munch within the room;
          Tame the stress builders;
          Flower the dreams;
          Longevity the salary.

          One day at a time;
          A card before another;
          Smiles and happiness;
          Years to the number.

          The grave years afar;
          The bones miles support;
          Great and Grand the titles;
          Near century not decades.

          Dungeon Cells
          ===================

          In Africa, everywhere;
          Third world they thrive;
          Change first claim;
          Reach out as saviors.

          Trade on votes;
          Shoot down power at times;
          Plunder whole nation;
          Bank away in West;

          Army bully to fear;
          Murder, blackmail, opposition;
          Rape to satisfy lust;
          Quench throat with alcohol.

          No looking East;
          Home destitute, in disrepair;
          West thrives with loot;
          Rise up, oh! Africa.

          War Worries
          ================

          Earth engulfed, coast to coast;
          Heat on, within - across;
          Hopelessness and desperation;
          Earth boils, shakes.

          Leaders warn, same accused;
          Armories swell, prayers bemoan;
          Temperature in heights;
          Earth rattles, jitters.

          Pendulum dances a ballad;
          Conspirators spice rhythm;
          Threats consummate alliances;
          Worries, threat of war.

          Uncertainty molds the days;
          Propaganda taint the press;
          Minds roam in stress;
          Earth worry and ponder.

          War Tears
          ==============

          Mad men's game;
          Madness, lawlessness;
          All about power and greed;
          Blood, mayhem, the price.

          Wars, gruesome tales;
          People rights in limbo;
          Rape and torture, the norm;
          Grief, pain, descend.

          War cries, war tears;
          Human lives as sticks;
          Genocide, rebels, sides claim;
          Heaven the truth knows.

          Oppressors may vanguish;
          Almighty to review;
          Earthly win, heavenly loss;
          God to console.

          Black & White
          ===================

          Countless human colors;
          Within, across, races;
          God's earthly flower garden;
          Blessing to mankind.

          Africa mother stock;
          Home of germination;
          Divine manifestation,
          Until whole earth bedded.

          Beauty more than a trait;
          Diversity most beautiful;
          Monocolor too boring;
          Races beauty of earth.

          Races like rainbow;
          Earth horizon beautified,
          To His glory above;
          All that dwell rejoice.

          World Peace
          *To every one who has been affected by wars or violents

          The world is big but small.
          A small care, make each and everyone
          Of us very connecting.
          We are all one in spirit. We have same
          body and blood flowing through each of us.
          Our life is maintained with food and water.
          This food and water is a life giver.
          It is same everywhere in the whole world.
          So, life is sacred, life is delicate and precious.
          We all have responsibility to keep this life
          that we have in common safe and alive.
          Skin is the only factor different in the world.
          So let us work together, because the way
          is long but small.
          Let us help each other, because the way
          is difficult and different.
          Let us share life, because the way is joyful.
          Let us go in love, because the way is ours.
          Let us begin, because the way grow before us.
          Let us go in peace, because the way is us all alone.

          Women of the World
          *This poem is dedicated to every woman in the world.

          How important you are, Do you know
          You are the backbone of the world.
          You are the Queen of the world.
          You are the maker of the world.
          You are the life giver of the world.
          You are the spices of the world.

          You add spice to the life and world.
          When will the earth recognize you women.
          When will the world treat you with respect.
          When will the world treat you with dignity.
          When will the world respect you women.
          We still have a long way to go.

          But little by little you will get there.
          You will be noticed for what you are.
          You will be noticed that without you,
          The world will be boring, without you, the
          world will ceased, without you there will be
          no body. Then you will be treated with respect and diginity.

          Life in their eye
          ===================

          I set out the breezy afternoon
          In road lead to American Embassy
          Here came traffic under house bridge
          As we wait in important house bridge
          Here come one,two,till ten different

          precious,they are wasting out
          that's their house,one look at me,
          God bless ma! this precious live under
          this house brigde and wonder in mind
          What happen to this precious life

          In their eye you see wasting
          In their eye you see hope
          In their eye you see life
          Wonder what can be done
          How this precious be wasting
          As young as they are
          Probably was born in that bridge.

          Work together world.
          It says in the dream.

          Everyone will survive.
          If only we sow together.
          Everyone will rape it.

          If only we fly together.
          Everyone will land safely.

          Everyone will laugh together.
          If only we breathe in together.
          Everyone will breathe out.

          Happiness
          ===================

          Happiness is in the mind of us all.
          At any moment,when the heart started
          Breaking with the word said or
          actions that was carried out.

          Lift up that heart,because within it,
          There is joy beneath it,lift up that
          Heart with a moment of happiness.
          Make the best out of it.

          Turn it around and don't let it break.
          Because broken heart is hard to put back
          Together,it's hard to mend back together.
          It is hard to glue back together.

          When it is scattered,
          It takes a long time,
          To pick up the
          Pieces together.

          The Person in You
          ===================

          You are who you are
          No matter what and where
          Lord is your confidence and Protect your foot from slippery.

          By the knowledge the depths were
          Broken up and down dew drop the cloud.
          Lie down and do not be afraid
          You lie and sleep will be sure.

          Don't be afraid of terror or
          Trouble from the wicked
          Do not withhold goodness when
          It is in the power of your hand.

          Oppressor should not be envy.
          And his way should not be choose n.
          Abomination is the perverse person.
          But secret counsel is the upright.

          Great are to the humble heart.
          But scorn are to the scornful.
          Legacy of fools should be but to shame.
          The wise shall inherit Glory.
