Poem: That Burning Need!

Updated on March 9, 2014

Understanding anything

about the ways that so

many have chosen to

go about doing those

things which they feel

are convincing enough

they continue following.

Even up to this day and

that's what they believe.

For anyone to become

wise enough to access,

through understanding

analysis and conclusion.

To give an intelligent and

truthfully sincere answer.

That would be the only

way one can honestly know

What this actually takes.

Some of those things

which causes people

To become defeated

in their attempts even

a long time before

Settling in and setting

Out on life’s journey.

Just imagine people

going out to fight

in this battlefield of life

Without any Armor!

This is the only one

of its kind where one

gets thrown into the

mix on this giant stage,

where the fun is to start

now it ceases to exist

this is where everything

gets thrown at you

directly in your face.

That’s your initiation.

Welcome to your life!

Because you don't know

anything as yet ,all you

have are more questions

while also being confused

there you have no choice

you throw back confusion

Looking at those of you

who came believing

that your Parents are

Just basically some type

of Human machine

dispensing everything

that you may need

from day one since

you were born they

have just been stuck

on dispensing to you

selfishly you believe

that it would always be

that very same way

with them giving you

all you will ever need!

Think again sons/ daughters!

think about yourself as

a sensinle young man

or same young woman

who will go on to live .

a life which would be

a great example to others

others that one day will

be certain to follow you!

Take a look at those

who already tried this,

time and time again.

They have all failed

they were all doing the

same thing, sometimes

teaching their parents

this different approach

they have not learned

later when they will again

surface they won't come

up just as signs

showed with those before.,

everyday the bucket

will keep going to the well

but one day the bottom

will surely drop out.! Bob!

Why are you expecting

a miracle when you know

that's the reason why

there is so much trouble

we get only one chance

at living good in the world

yet we have never even

said one single prayer

while waking each day

being alive and living,

Never one thinking of

"The Most High God"

Ever been someplace

where you have been

taught for sometime

you know have learned

you have become wise.

how many tries it took

to finally get you there,

To this beautiful life

you now live, and enjoy?

See the same bucket,

if it was all just a joke

Why are't you laughing?

If ever you can see

that which I am seeing

Both past and present.

I see some people that

Jumped over bridges,

with ropes on their necks.

I see many that keep

drinking, knowing that

they are going to drive.

I see people believing

that it was only an accident

through which they came

Now they are actually

again hoping to create

another such, or even

similar accident through

which they once again

can use that same ride

in this accidental game

treating life disrespectful .

thinking it’s finally the end

realizing that it's actually

only just the beginning!

That's why the wise guys

always find a way to prevail

While those guys who live

to think that they can

always play smart

are the ones who usually

Always goes on to fail.

I am not being clever

if I am sick and simmply

Just want to get well,

So that someone will see

what appears as a better me

I need to be wise, and get

better understanding that

being sick is only just

another footprint that I must

leave on this one man’s

Journey towards destiny..

If I were you, I would say

to me go ahead start exactly

from the same location

the book of Revelation was,

the exact place you first felt!

That Burning need !

      The burning need indeed! A wise philosopher you are, sir, but a voice in the wilderness, unheard? We need to get your voice out there and heard. I have to believe there is a place in this world for reason and justice and peaceful persuasion...bravo to you and thank you!

      I that you very much mljd,. It's a great pleasure , and I am glad you already know, as I have told you, and mean every word.

      There is nothing else that I love doing more, and it's no better feeling, when you know this . I have tried many things and this one keep me the most honest and that what I like , the written word.

      So when I write it , I have to like it and when I do I am at peace.

      So just the same way I thanked you the very first , it cannot change , but if ever it does the reasons are visible and evident for all to see.

      So God bless you dear lady and it' my pleasure.

      Great words of wisdom Sky. We all need to remember we are here on this earth for a reason and I believe you have found your reason. This poem is very inspiring thank you for sharing it.

      The the feeling that keeps a smiling young man smiling , it's always the reason.

      Thanks my brethren .

      Thank you "AE" I felt this quite sometime ago , I came in the form of the reason I am here , all the greatest things that we can ever know and need is ours and for free, many are still now aware , it can never be asking too much for me to share that which I see , it's my pleasure.

      Never to any church , but always to the reality , so one can understand why the churches are here.

      But it remains : Where two or three are gathered together in my name , I am there to bless.

      Always a pleasure "AE"

      Bless Eddy and sincere thanks.There you go shining just as God wants us to .

      The only people I will attempt to tell what to do ,can only be within my biological family and if they are my own. Otherwise I will always suggest , even if it doesn't appear or even sound that way.

      So many of the greatest writers , will tell you from their writing , to write about things that you can relate to. I love truth and and I can relate to it quite easily.

      I said this many times before ,I know what can happen when multitudes are cramped into one space. Cindy Lauper said I see your true colors .

      Your life , unless you are one of those special ones , becomes one of a sort of competition, getting the approval of others , it happens everywhere , till man design shows after it.

      This was my natural way growing up with friends brothers and sisters.

      I am not finished with learning , but I am finished with school. I have a certain approach to learning, and apart from God, it f the teacher is not, up to my approval too bad and they cannot force me.

      A mother or father who are great with their kids , I m all ears , because it take understanding from life and your parents , even if they died at your birth, you are carrying on their spirit, it's by God through them you are here and it will never change.

      When people act a certain way towards me ,and especially after doing them absolutely nothing, I learn about their relation with God with their parents and with themselves. Only because I know I did them nothing.

      Since every man got a right to decide his own destiny!No one can easily push me off my belief and plan to go about my calling . I always say If I be yee , then who be me?

      I am pretty glad that someone as yourself, understands a little more about that human way , life is not a joke , but we can have fun.

      If I am not feeling well this day , I am not going to try make you feel same, that's my time to learn more about myself so that I can have answers for the children when they do not understand.

      Who can be the best writer when everyone has not been born as yet? Who speaks the best language when we are all still learning?

      It's a great pleasure to see and feel, what you are doing here . No one got your message but you and you Must share it in your own way .

      We all got our separate jobs.

      Always a great pleasure to hear from you Eddy and I greatly appreciate you comments and positive words, I won't sleep if I knowingly do that which is evil to someone. That's why I wrote the piece , "I slept well"

      When we do evil we are denying our true self and we expose the hold evil has on us.

      Always obey your true self , that's where truth and strength comes from. Thanks.

      Have a blessed day you and yours Eddy.

      Thanks you so much Rose . It's simply great to know that you have carried something so precious will you all along and , will continue to do so because honor thy mother and thy father is music to your ears.Give God the praise.

      I won't hesitate to say to you though, I call my Mom each day , it can sometimes came to three times a day ,because I know the effects of sincere words . Proven in me without any coaxing, man will always wish he can again see his childhood , regardless of how good or bad it was. Life was shaped there.

      Because it was those same words from my mother that I live by today, I have my own , but it was shaped through her. Give God that praise.

      As always Rose your comments are always greatly appreciated.

      Have a blessed day.

      Voted up and awesome. Keep them coming. If for only a moment we would stop to think and realize that everything even parenting comes from square one and learn our lessons and save them for future reference we would all do so much better. I believe there is a certain lesson to be learned from each day and most of us just don't see it. I was making soup one day and suddenly it was like being hit by lightning. I was using the same wooden spoon my mom used all through her life and she'd say food tastes best using a wooden spoon. It was only then that I remembered her words but I had been automatically using the same spoon. So let's be courteous of one another, let's learn something from each day and look toward the Lord for more guidance. God bless.

      Bless brethren.
