When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room

Distorted – nay, falsehoods – proclaimed

From forked tongues without restrain

I believe in the goodness of humanity
Believe that dawn will follow night surely
Believe in all things beautiful
Though the world is full of misery
Believe in  oneness of mankind, disappearance
Of artificial boundaries dividing us
Believe one day we shall overcome, and
Win our fight against eradication of crippling diseases
Believe we will be able to stop all abuses and exploitation

The Whomans!

by Tanya

All the while I thought
Why She had some?
Why He had all?
Both He and She were Humans..

All the while I thought
Why Whites were favoured?
Why Darks were abhorred?
Both Whites and Darks were Humans..

~ Pieces of You, of Me

by ladyliterati

~ Pieces of You, of, Me

There is no time limit to grief

Just shock, horror, disbelief

And “well doers” seek a smile

Insisting grief is but a little while

But this cannot possibly be true;

The World of the Day!

by Tanya

I wondered what the world meant..
Was it the love that people spread?
Or is it the hatred which actually stands?

It’s love, they said,
Which linked all in this den.
But there stood hungry men,
Who craved for the blood of these men!

~ Being Human

by ladyliterati


“Strive as we might, our humanity keeps us from perfection -that great illusion – And it is our humanity that tortures our thoughts when a “mistake” has been made. A mistake is paid for once, yet, our humanity guilts us, shames us, ’til we bankrupt our souls, still, believing we can obtain the unattainable…the perfect”… O’Prunty 2/13/17

~ Death Holds No Victory Here…

by ladyliterati

~ Death Has No Victory

We are all a composite

Of that which came before

The good, the bad,

Sadness, happiness, galore
The efforts of our ancestors

Still cling within our bones

Tis why we have no answers

In my minds eye I protest,

Protest about the ever growing voilence of our world.

Protest about the ever growing pain.

Culture       is       a       fence,

fixed     with     giant     stems

and    sharp     barbed   wires

of beliefs, norms and values,

to      set    me     an    insider

and  you  a   bloody  outsider.

So Kind Guru

by newrana

A jungle was his head

for lies to hide;

no brush ever touched

his teeth too wide.

His rough-edged feet

feared no thorns;

his shorts and shirt

clung ever to his bones.

When the morn slithers her yellow light,
my heart, she replies

Om-dom. Om-dom.

Together we rise. We walk the hallway, kiss our coffee,
drink in the fresh air that flows from the opening door.

The Ire of God

by Richard Rensberry, author at QuickTurtle Books®

The Ire of God

Earl’s heart
like the rabbits and deer
gets its tides from the phases
of moon. As it wanes
all is quiet in the woods
and furrows.

The Blessing that Walks


Be the Breath of the Moon

And the Smile of the Sun,

Be the Source of Gentle Grace

And the Joyful Giver, where there’s none.

If I don’t find my way

by Sandeep

The structure of my mind,
Is so patterned,
That I repeat myself,
Habitually, tediously,
Boringly, tiredly.
My present justifies
That, so clearly.

“How ditty-do
How do you do and mercy-bow ku!”
Outside the hospice
Howitzer Howie
Hollered humorless and horribly.
“Hello, howdie – How are ya?”

Voices seeking audience

Of past entrapments
