Why can’t we just love

our differences instead

  of trying to be the same?

Let us Go Back

by Zenei

The past holds the future.

Don’t be chased. Don’t be chained.

Forget it and we tumble.

Go back and make peace.

by scatterednotebooks
PurpleTurtle

It seems that I have lost my friend.
I must find out where she’s gone.
My name is purple turtle,
and it’s no fun to be alone.

I found myself inside a box
with a lot of noise around,
and then I was lifted to a shelf
where I am sitting now.

Every pain, an imagination
As unreal, as stones fell depressed
Sinking into thin waters
As unreal, as stones raced happy
Rolling upon wet slopes

in the steps of Abigail

by Swann Lavender

past hash marks on the stones,
five sets of five, three alone,
she nears the gate
guarded by two words voiced in
innocence, full of hope, trust, love,
not wisely, but too well.

Fear

fear, a cool creature
laughing out loud
enjoying the torture
for it stands at a distance
while we tie ourselves

Once Upon A Time

by Lenanoid

There was a girl
She tried to fit in
She tried everything

But nothing seems to work
No one seems to be fine
Nothing seems to rhyme

Seeing Ones Self

by graypoet

mirror


I have paused at the mirror and wondered
What image is projected, how am I perceived
Do others accept me in the way that I believe
Do I correctly interpret the looks that I receive.

Resistance

by Venkat

Resistance
Word well said
In books of wisdom
Reason for a bird’s flight
To propel high above
So by a power
Rise within

Self-Acceptance

by Venkat

As the earth spins around

Feelings atop a velvet moon

Speaking to sensations unbound

In the cosmos of God’s tune

I slip into another universe

Wearing one more pretension

Yet with my fears I traverse

Holding my scattered emotion

Acceptance

by Venkat

With truth by my side

Why do I doubt

Question the self and hide

Let weeds of mind sprout

With truth in my heart

Why do I spite

Angered and torn apart

Let prejudice come in sight

Faded Love

by maiasong

Up and down the furrows

swinging old tin bucket in time

up and over

avocado with roses not so red

anymore

Sloshing out over the peeling and rust

with each step that pauses between the gaiety
