This is a poem I wrote, its about bullying, rage, vengance, and violence. Writing stuff like this is a way for me to work through anger in writing, rather than acting out on it.

=================================
Judgement



Hatred, malice, filling the chalice

Rend, descend, there is no end

Now, my friend, its time to defend

Yourself against my rage!


So a monster am I?

Let me tell you why

From your mouth to my soul then

Was poured all thats unwholesome

In the dark of the night

You'll scream out with fright

From the monsters rage tonight!


Fear, drawing near, time of judgment is here

Face, your sins, as judgment begins

Your end, is near, can you hear?

I'm a monument to all your sins!


So a monster am I?

Let me tell you why

From your mouth to my soul then

Was poured all thats unwholesome

In the dark of the night

You'll scream out with fright

From the monsters rage tonight.

Remember the doctrine; embody the code.
Live the creed; embrace the 16 teachings.
Honor your vows.

Paying for the Promised Land

Telling lies instead of time
Turns us One to the Other ;

True Love tried by tales
Told twice tenfold times
As time untold to tell
Two or twenty more Lies
And turn us once again
Away ...

The Trials terminate
On terms told only in tales
Of True Love's tragedy --

--Taking its toll away in chains
To Debtors' Prison
For touching that which
Had been given :
Pledging Payments
Over twice tenfold terms
Sighed and signed
In Thrice binding Promises,
In plume-marked Memories
A Thousand Thanks thicker
And more Vital
Than Blood ...

Thus ~

These turn told tales
Back to told Time as
True Love's tears
Dry on the Tundra.

The Promised Land
Paid for twice tenfold times
As true to the terms.

Then, there we are :
Turning back again
One to the Other ;
I take you in my Arms tenderly,
The tale told
In time, On time
And Out of time,
Lying dry and tired
On the Tundra,
Land Promised truly
Where we make Not Quite True Love
Under the Total Eclipse ...

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
-Emily Dickinson

Drowning
Gasping, struggling; fighting for air.
Thinking, wondering; how is this fair?
Embracing, holding; my pounding chest.
Hoping, praying; to accomplish my best.
Stacking, piling; I’m way over my head.
Realizing, knowing; I’ll soon be dead.
Pushing, fighting; desiring to be free.
Cherishing, loving; what was given to me.
Problems, trials; continue smothering me.
Drowning, drowning; can’t anyone see?

Little Devil

Little devil with a song to sing, what sorrow today have you to bring?
Your tunes are so dark, weary, and dreary, yet I find myself desiring them so dearly.
Won’t you sing a tune for me, to make the day a little less full of glee?

Oh little devil with a song to sing, what dark and dismal joy you bring.
I’ll play your game because I want your pain, if it’s all just the same.
Please jab me with your pointed stick, so I can get so dearly sick.

So devil with a song to sing, what sorrow today have you to bring?
Do you come to dish out pain, or traverse here instead to play a game?
Wont you sing so dearly hollow, to make me full of pain and sorrow?

Little devil with a song to sing, what sorrow today have you to bring?

Saint turned Sinner

A lonely rhyme, a single crime
Yet it’s just the same thing at a different time

A lonely boy, once filled with joy
Now only knows to reciprocate, the hate he’s made to tolerate

A gun, rising sun
Actions made, can’t be undone

Pull the trigger, give a snigger
Sins stacked up, now it’s time to deliver

Sirens singing, eardrums ringing
Mind races, walking in paces

Begin to run, a new life begun
Action deployed, two lives destroyed

Hate, intolerance, anger.

What can we do to end the hate that stipulates?
What can we do to end the intolerance that spawns a conglomerate of destruction?
What can we do to end the hunger that drives us asunder?

Change the scene

A little boy, filled with joy
Ignorant of the world around him, unaware of the hate that awaits him
Born different, in a world that despises differences
Tries to teach, tries to preach
Gets beat down and smacked in the street
Had enough, time for change, some actions he will rearrange
Buys a gun, now judgment comes

A lonely boy, once filled with joy
Now only knows to reciprocate, the hate he’s made to tolerate

-Kohadre

Unnamed

A whistle, a whine of turbines
And his train trundled away from the platform ;
One leaves the station from the other side
Of the strangest geometry,
Flowers of Life, fuzzy fruit on trees of Knowledge,
And the summer rolled open
Like an airlock …

Floating home staring up into a frozen star,
Glazed eye fixed on the space
Between Spica and Rigel
And feeling out just how much of that stuff there is ;
Light-years turn space-time inside-out,
Opens a hole and jumps through it
Out of ‘here’ and into ‘here too’ …

And It jumps again, from season to season
And back again – sunlight and train-times
Ticking away, Counting down to the next jump ;
The stars flicker in broad daylight,
Rearranging the constellations
Into a more Orderly mosaic –
Only leaving out One.

Brushing up & Bleaching out little white lies,
One finds things one has never lost,
Clocks and Calendars melt down like candles ;
Dreams dry out in lunar dust
That never blows, nor stirs, nor settles.

Falling home, feeling over the edge between two centuries
Wedged into the space between Rigel and Spica …
