      Of one light , or the glow of many. Of earth we are born, and of earth all return. struggles are about us all. Of one mind. Impossible it seems, yet of earth we are born, and of earth we all return. In a single life many are touched, as well may be destroyed. In peace we search for love and happines. War seeks an end as well a begining. Of earth born, we are bound to it's nature. to constant struggle. to constant change, and a constant seeking of peace. Of one light, or the glow of many. of earth we are born, and of earth we return.

      A World Filled With Peace

      My poem of power...  will fill the world with peace
      there'll be no sadness .. the violence will cease

      You'll go back to the days of yesteryear
      when doors remained open.. all night without fear

      We'll no longer worry about semiautomatics
      all guns would be gone.. there'll  be no fanatics

      Imagine the joy among all humanity
      no one will endure a life of insanity

      There'll be much affection..  no police needed for safety and protection
      no security alarms..  will be set for detection

      I truly look  forward to a world filled with peace
      and join every cultural in a ballroom feast

      i saw some good poetry on hubs in a couple of series called poetic license but every time i go to find them now they are all gone and if the profile is right the last person to name a series poetic license was banned.
      too bad because there was some good poetry there
      maybe hp doesnt like more than one hub series having the same name or using the same name more than once?
      i dont know but there were a few good poems there
      there still are some good poems here justnot as many now
      me?
      i am no poet
      sorry

      RELIGIONS
       
       
      The entire Buddhist monk’s life is but a preparation,
      For his Death Point or moment of separation.
       
      The Jains have santhara,
      Quitting life consciously to join with the paramatma.
       
      Hindus go into Samadhi,
      Where there is no Congress, Shiv Sena, BJP or Samajwadi.
       
      The Christian merges with the Holy Spirit,
      Peace, no more desperate.
       
      The Sufi mystic to become one,
      Dances, twirls, prays, trances to get the job done.
       
      Aghora means Illumined with Light,
      Longing for Shiva in whom they delight.
       
      Shamanism or the Art of Ecstasy,
      The ultimate being one with the super entity.
       
      There is no need to change your faith,
      And on your old religion lay a wreath.

    If the words written could reach down low
    into the soul of the readers being.
    Pulling out by the roots all the evils of
    selfeshness and maybe he'd start seeing.

    All that he has created in the mess of
    this world and all that it might ever be.
    Without the resident evil  holding us
    all by the heart to be forever free.

    The words would wrench the human element
    from the hold of ignorance and bias.
    To once and forever lead us  to a place
    where shared our love could not deny us.

    if we could focus on the positive,
    commend and re assure,
    share what we have,
    however small the amount.
    treat others how you would like to be treated,
    encourage, lend a helping hand.
    hold no grudges,
    pay our taxes.

    that is only the beginning i suppose.

    If I were to save the world
    with prose and mere words,
    I would speak ever so softly
    as to not wake or disturb.

    But I would announce loudly
    to those who would want to hear.
    Even the neighbor, who can only peek
    across the bushes and sneer.

    I would pick up his paper
    when it is raining and wet,
    and I would take it somewhere dry
    like his porch and leave it set.

    I would not yell at the politicians
    or anyone who didn't agree.
    I would do something nice
    so others could certainly see.

    We cannot change everyone
    but we can change who we are.
    Just something very little
    will certainly go far.

    So if I could change the world,
    it would not be by mere words and deeds.
    I would just try to make someone smile
    and by that plant some seeds.

        THe Massacre of Humanity


        We fake diplomatic smiles
        To cameras with flashing lights
        We blame each for all,
        THe pain and guilt .As we fall,
        Lies pile up like a brick wall,
        Eating up every single ray we call,
        Hope.Our vision of a better worldis fading,
        Leaving bodies all over the place burning.

        Millions can't find crums of bread,
        When we stuff ourselves instead
        A massacre in the name of peace
        When will all this bull shit seize
        No time for diplomatic smiles
        Time to listen to those bloody cries
        Let us lay down our differences
        And go back to our senses


        Or has our conscience been dead
        For a long time instead
        I wonder if treacherous history
        Can forgive us for the massacre of Humanity

    My Message to the World

    Agree to stop all violence,
    for pain results in hate.
    And if you cannot get along,
    for now, just separate.
    Put your ego in its place.
    Don't think of folks in terms of race.
    See someone else's child
    in each and every face.

    Care for creatures great and small
    if your heart's a human heart at all.
    Within you find your power and sense.
    Don't steal these things at someone's expense.

    Lend a hand.
    Dry a tear.
    Don't let others
    live in fear.
    Believe what you will
    about God or maker,
    but be a life-giver -
    not life-taker.

    Respect the world.
    Respect all life.
    Vow to battle
    grief and strife.
    Learn that kindness
    isn't weak.
    Learn to think
    before you speak.
    Gather wisdom
    where it grows.
    Know there's things
    you'll never know.

    Oh, World, we've so much work to do;
    but we can do it - me and you.

    Teach a child how to lose,
    If you truly want them to win.
    Teach them how to say please and thank you,
    And how to make new friends.

    Be there when they are sad and when they mess up
    And when they spill a glass of milk-help them clean it up

    Be the best that you can be-even when no one is around
    And when the world cuts you a break,
    Spread the break around.

    Teach your kids,
    Not to step on heads-in order to get to the top
    Teach them that true luxury has nothing to do with things that can be bought

    Kiss your kids and put them to bed with kindness and admiration
    And every chance that you get take a family vacation
    Slow down-don’t go so fast
    Not all problems will disappear
    If you don’t take time to love yourself you will never be able to see clear

    Life is too short to forget who you are-
    Ask yourself, if you don’t figure it out-
    How will you show your kids how to stand up and be proud?
    Your children are the future-
    Teach them the kindness of what can be

    If we can change the world it will start with you and me
    What we decide to do today and what we do tomorrow
    When it comes to our kids and the choices we make,
    We are deciding if our futures are filled with more happiness or more sorrow.

    It would be about peace, forgiveness, and cherishing the life and the earth we've been given.

    It would be about not waiting until it's too late - on any level - to appreciate what we have and to guard it with our very being.

    It would be about people waking up and taking responsibility for where they live, who they are, and MAKING the world a better place instead of just existing in it.

    Into this life. many lives are trampled. All for what it seems to be right to ones mind. Terror whips to the soul of those in constant turmoil within themselves. Courage dwells beneath. For all to stand as one being,as one solitare voice, and silence the call of war. no longer to hear weaping song of the lost,yet harmonise with the sound of peace.

    LIFE
    A life is a long time
    to remain on the shore.
    To never take a chance, to never sail to more.

    A breath is a short time
    to declare a war.
    To just take for granted, the freedom from the gore.

    Forever is too long a time,
    to never open a door.
    To liberty and love, when all the hope is poor.

    So before this time runs out,
    and this diddy is a bore,
    Open up your heart and shout- I want to live for more!!

    (not my best, or my style. But I think you get the point.)

    Before you pick the rock up
    Before you even decide
    Before you think you're better
    Take a look inside
    The glass house you are living in
    Is plain for all to see
    Before you pick the rock up
    Ask the question: What about me?

    Have you looked at the stars lately?
    Have you delved into its innermost being?
    Tell me, what do you see?
    What songs does she sing for you?
    Where do they lead you?

    Inside.

    Look for that voice of reason
    where love always flows.
    I can't describe it to you,
    for it will be different for everyone.

    Go there when times are tough.
    Go there when you are happy.
    It does not matter:
    Love has no preference.

    Love is all there is.

    A poem to change the world,
    What words could make men see
    The travesty and evil,
    this world as come to be?

    What words could one compose?
    That would embed tranquility
    Or end dismay and hopelessness
    And clean our air and sea?

    That one man or woman's pen
    Could write words to make man see
    That change must come from each of us
    So this, a better place would be

    A poem to change the world;
    Just what would my poem say?
    Would it speak of hate and greed?
    Or the love and kindness every day?

    What words could my poem say?
    That might ease the plight of poor
    More over remains the question
    Why now, they listened not before.

    SO I'll hearken not to write one
    But instead by actions and by deeds
    That I might make a difference
    To each soul I'm blessed to meet.

    Change may not come at once
    But in time we may all see
    If we but offer others hope
    With selfless anonymity

    To change the world

    The world is spinning so fast
    its over come with wrath.
    Children cry in the night
    trembling, hiding from fright.

    If a poem could change the world,
    I would see joy unfurled.
    Upon the masses ecstasy unleashed.
    Children no longer hiding from beasts

    free to play in sun and sand,
    never afraid to take a hand,
    never to know an unkind word,
    never to be just part of the herd,

    but cherished as a precious gift.
    Growing strong as their souls lift
    higher to heaven each blessed day
    forevermore to stay that way,

    innocent and free of care.
    If the world would stop and stare
    I’m sure we all would agree.
    A child is our greatest mystery
    ... our only hope for a new history.

    when poets run the world as if they already don't
    (but that's another subject entirely),
    when poets run the world,
    fractal rainbows appear by command performance
    above white castles in the orange sky
    and the throngs gather under the rainclouds
    to celebrate in their mud dance huts
    up to their elbows in a rugby scrum.

    when poets run the world,
    pavlov's bell will go unnoticed;
    in fact the whole clock thing will appear
    as the real illusion that it is.

    when poets run the world
    everybody's hands will be on their own switches,
    forgetting the manipulations,
    forgetting the machinations,
    remembering the God nature within everybody's everyone,
    everything will just be as the poet's dream.

    when poets run the world as if they already don't
    (but that is what the poets focus on),
    when poets run the world,
    the doors will open wide in a grand gesture bow
    and everyone will rise up in song
    at the festival of feasts and feats resumes
    in memories of what dreams unfold.

    when poets run the world,
    the news gossip will comfort the masses
    on this rollercoaster ride we call a planet;
    like springboards, eyes will turn to possibilities
    instead of eventualities and actuaries
    because the insurance man can go fuck himself,
    a sparrow doesn't need a policy for its nest,
    a sparrow builds to suit and dreams whatever
    it wants into existence
    and lest a sparrow fall was only an illusion
    in the first damn place.

    when poets run the world,
    well you know what?
    look around.

    life is a poem when poets run the world.

    The bible is like a map to God's Kingdom.
    Treasures n promises r all hidden in His words.
    All is there n given to us.
    see beyond the words
    meditate on them
    n trust God with the supernatural.
    Just allow Him to work wonders
    n make your life meaningful.
    And many people stumble, never to climb up again
    because they r leaning on their own strength n ability to sustain them.
    Know that the Lord wants u to lean on Him as your pillar of strength,
    to hold His hand n look up to Him
    n not to sway to the right or to the left,
    not letting Satan to pull u back,
    but allow God to push u up,
    allowing Him to take u to a higher level,
    to soar with Him.

    Live up to God's expectations, not men's.
    Please Him n achieve n succeed for Him.
    Give glory n praises to Him.

    Live your life as a living testimony for God.
    Be salt to the world.
    Be light to those in darkness.
    Be a history maker.
    Make your life count for Christ.
    Live a life that's worth living.

    nobody knows when the world will come to its end.
    Then, there would be no right and wrong,
    because justice then will no longer exist.
    Therefore the moment now,
    n make full use of your time here.
    do not let the evil one or anybody pull u down,
    or influence your principle in what's right.
    Stand firm on your beliefs.
    Discern right from wrong, based on the Lord's wisdom.
    do not go astray, but go back to your Creator.
    Love Him as He 1st loved u.
    do right n don't go against your conscience.
    Hear the still,small voice in u
    Know it's there n it's right.
    but sometimes u doubt yourself.
    have peace within your heart.
    hold on to the things u believed r true
    put your trust in Him.
    be faithful.
    for He's always faithful
    n He'll never leave u.

    Don't go through each day
    without a sense of purpose.
    Thank God for all that He had done for us.
    It's because of His love that u n me get to live.
    His death brought life.
    Let's live for Him.

    I can even feel the beat of it
    I can understand you
    I know I care for you

    In this wonderful world of ours
    Our legacy will be one
    And that one day
    You and I will become real one

    Because you are my brother
    And you are my friend
    We are one and the same
    Breathing living and loving!

    So come and join me now
    Let us dance and swing together
    We can travel far and wide
    Into this beautiful world of ours!

    It was there before Buddha

    Before Christ

    Before Mohammed

    Before Krishna

    Compassion

    You will find it in the lion

    You will find it even in the rain

    Tears come and pain

    Then compassion and we are whole again

    Kind thought

    Kinder action

    The wounded souls cry for it

    Only compassion heals

    Do no harm

    Carry kindness in your mind always

    And where you find suffering

    Your kindness will inspire your healing action

     

    In this way

    You find enlightenment

      Wow great responses. I already wrote the poem I'd give to the world to change things. It's called turd stepping. It basically says that we are all going to face problems but how we deal with them will determine how we ourselves as well as other cope and feel about each day.
