Our hands are being misused.
Our bodies and brains abused.
The scars we've acquired
Have made us hard and quite tired
(Is there a nurse for hire?)

No wonder a riot ensued.
(When are hands are being abused)
No wonder a riot ENSUED.
(Our bodies raped and utterly misused)
No wonder a RIOT ENSUED.

The contradiction of - endless love and eternal hate
Makes us bring together what they separate
The sky was burned with the smell of smoke
The pain still not cured, but there’s always hope

The trail of tears leads me step by step
Interrogation still, a false concept
Can't you see the truth, we’re still apart 
In two separate groups both light and dark

It’s an issue repressed, a truth ignored
Now its time to express, hide the news no more
Look to the past, stop—think now reminisce 
Riddle me now, please answer me this

How’s a child to blame for the corruption of men? 
Is his soul not the same? Have the racists done it again? 
This contradiction brings a tear to my eye
I can see the hate, that’s easy to find

In contradiction, the contradiction of 
Now some one quick - please show me the love.

Somewhere through space and time,
We live through universal rhythm and rhyme,
Can we learn to live as one,
Children of the earth and sun,
Let life's music set you free,
As new vibrations help us see, 
Our tribe united in humanity,
Dancing in waves love,
As new vibrations transend us above,
As our souls trandsend through the astral space,
We feel our souls music that can't be erased,
Somewhere in space in time,
We dance with the rhythm we live through the rhyme

I feel the light as it touches my skin.

So warm it gives me the strenght to win.

A battle, a fight, I have been in so long.

A battle with in myself, that has been ever so wrong.

My past may be a demon at best,

but the time has finaly come to lay these demons to rest.

No longer can they try to comsume the light in me.

For these chains that have bound me, I now cast to the sea.

How I have long for this freedom for years.

No more wading threw sarrow, in the sea of my tears.

But it is strenght I have gained, from this battle of night.

love, courge, and wisdom, has ended this fight

More Bad Haiku..

People rise up now

Marching forward on the road

The journey just begun...


You don't want to look

In my direction of pain

You don't want to feel...


A party for some

Revolution for others

Time will tell the truth...


Ideas into real

Lies shattered into pieces

Much work ahead now...

I hear You say,
"My love is over. It's underneath.
It's inside. It's in between.
The times you doubt Me, when you can't feel.
The times that you question, 'Is this for real? '
The times you're broken.
The times that you mend.
The times that you hate Me, and the times that you bend.
Well, My love is over, it's underneath.
It's inside, it's in between.
These times you're healing, and when your heart breaks.
The times that you feel like you're falling from grace.
The times you're hurting.
The times that you heal.
The times you go hungry, and are tempted to steal.
The times of confusion, in chaos and pain.
I'm there in your sorrow, under the weight of your shame.
I'm there through your heartache.
I'm there in the storm.
My love I will keep you, by My pow'r alone.
I don't care where you fall, where you have been.
I'll never forsake you, My love never ends.
It never ends."

silence the violence, increase the peace, realize the stars in front of your eyes, there called your dreams,

Happiness is a state of mind, how you think is how you feel,
all things take time, I'll quit when iam killed

I take the stress and exchange it for motivation, cuz the hard times will pass, rearrange my frustrations, and there's no looking back

This life has taught me so much, and I'll continue to grow, accepting conflict as lessons, so I know I'll never slow

It may not be what you envisioned, this thing called life, make the best of what your givin, never stop the fight

Nothing comes free in this world , you've got to fight by any means, remember who you are and where you came from, believe and you can achieve.
Comment by Shanxon Lemasters on June 28, 2011 at 3:39pm

First time writing in a few years and this is what I got:


Confusion to the max
Spiraling out of control
Hold on tight to any sanity left
It has slipped out of your grasp

Slipping slipping
Falling falling
Into the depths of the unkown

Slipping slipping
Falling falling
Into the dark wild abyss

Nothing to catch you
No where within reach
Nobody in sight

Being alone strangled
On your own fears and missunderstood
Chaotic confusion is the end
The end of it all

Slipping slipping
Falling falling
Into the depths of the unkown

Slipping slipping
Falling falling
Into the dark wild abyss

During the ending
To whom do you embrace
While the credits roll
What is your desire

Who do you love
What do you do
Where have you gone
How have you lived
When does it all really matter

please.. let me know what you guys think.. thank you in advance.

Blend in

The mission

To turn on,

And tune in,

Individuality? Hmph!

F.T.W (For the wind)

Why bend


You can

Enroll in

A school

Of trend

Graduate in

The discipline

Of pedestrian

Dont forget

To find a friend

of mediocre capitualation

An association

Of resignation

Sell yourself

For the uniform

They all look so damn well in

Only then

Can you begin

Your fervent prostitution

To an

Unchallenged prostitution

Into the

New tribe, the

New nation

Who's flag is

Colorless, variety
