Poetrrryyyy

Recommended Posts

Its been a long time since I've written anything but here's two of them, they are written in the form of sonnets:

 

Dreamy Rendition

 

slouched shoulders

Weighed down by all of the injustices

crushed by boulders

they are no more then cleopatra's to your augustus'

 

its just fate

part of a greater vision

nine lives down to eight

due to indecision

 

learn from the past

and attack the present

move quick, adapt fast

dodge whats coming and not what just went

 

shed your pasts banshee

because progress lies in ambition

close your eyes and see where you want to be

search the answers to life's problems in your dreamy rendition

 

Generation Lost

 

as time goes on the realization hits

honesty ages like innocence

 

as the yearly trees will shed a leaf

the lies that lie on our tongues will eventually leave

 

for it is naturely nature whose course repeats

for a path is hard not to travel once they become streets

 

we look up to our elders for wisdom and guidance

but all you will find is subsidence

 

Like all those prior, none the wiser, merely more clever with their lip

When the hollow subsides don't lose your grip

 

One day you will let go from shear exhaust

Fall down the abyss and read the signs: Another Generation Lost

i wrote back in high school for a girl that i knew died in a car wreck

 

It sounds so fun, driving around in the sun.

She was so innocent, young, and sweet.

She had the world right at her feet.

Who would have known that she would die,

leaving everyone she touched to grieve and to cry?

Into the car she got so fast,

She didn't know that today was her last.

It all came up to fast for sight,

But she didn't give up without a fight.

Her funeral was the saddest day of my entire life.

Reality cut through me like a knife.

In another place in another time,

Her life no longer a part of mine.

If you carry impatience in your heart then you are alive

If you carry dreams in your eyes then you are alive

Learn to live like the free waves of wind

Learn to flow like the sea does as waves

Receive every moment in life with open arms

Every moment is a new beginning seeing with your eyes

If you carry surprise in your eyes then you are alive

If you carry impatience in your heart then you are alive

This isn't one I wrote, its actually the oldest written words (12th Century) in dutch found (somewhere on the back page in a bible, presumably penned by a monk) and I think it's beautiful that the oldest written words in my language are about love, so i just had to share it:

 

Old Dutch:

 

Hebban olla vogala nestas hagunnan hinase hic enda thu. Wat unbidan we nu

 

English:

 

Have all birds begun nests, except me and you. What are we waiting for.

 

 

Very short and for some perhaps very silly, but it still evokes great emotion in me everytime I read it, just makes me wanna feel in love and long for autumn.

 

PS: I write some poetry from time to time, but its in dutch, I'll try to translate some in the next days, but if I feel I can't keep the same feeling off the poems in another language, I'll drop it.

A short "standup" poem

 

lets see how this ends up ...

 

Crooked minds, blood spilled

Bullets and guns

no peace, always war

no room for the "kind"

let's break loose and unwind

disagree to agree

create peace

change the present

to say the past

"never it never happened"

we have a chance to rewind

a new story

for the upcoming generation

clean and pure stories

parables, primary resources

no pain in our hearts

create a future

for those with no hope

everlasting happiness

long lasting memories

flowers and life

pencils and paper

sane minds, clean hands

 

-random much? i guess i thought about peace and love among us all.
