rak03252: seems a few problems stilll...reaching poem site...


so much talk these days..black lives matter, of course,
.but all lives matter, white, black, brown, yellow. red. GREEN
what really matters, is how people treat each other
all life matters,
human lives matter....

WHAT MATTERS©
by rak

all the marching and protests
won’t bring dead men back
only words on signs
just a matter of fact
for real change to come
must be taught right from birth
the dream of mankind
and for peace on Earth

the nature of hatred
to fear the unknown
and anything different
nurtured and grown
too many speeches,
preachers,
agendas
so many different religions
and ideas where death
will send us
forget about wealth
find something of worth
if there’s any hope for mankind
and for peace on Earth

the pride for your country
the pride of your race
pride’s a deadly sin
and full of disgrace
don’t expect others
to do what you won’t
to turn the other cheek
when that’s something you don’t
is everyone equal
from the moment of birth
is there hope for mankind
and for peace on Earth

time’s up, goes the saying
while the world’s decaying
bombs fall, people scatter
it’s all life that matters
what matters most
is lend a hand
what matters most
united we stand
the color you are
is a matter of birth
a matter of mankind
and for peace on Earth

rak03252: funny....wa on I287 just now....must be that time of year when anials get hit a lot...got reminded of the following poem i wrote years go...had it on my pom site...thought i would move it over here, for any one that wants a wild trip......(don't know why, when i copy and paste, it adds a sapce between lines)
_________________________________________________________________________

one never knows, where a poem may start, this started on a lonely morning on I287,
animal carcasses all over the place...ended some time later as i returned to it,

found it was about a lot more...



DESPERATION ROAD©

by rak



going down desperation road

where the sun meets the sky

and dreams explode

one lost horizon

and another failed plan

tension is mounting

boundaries’ expand



a road going nowhere

a road with no end

its desperate and futile

no use to pretend



that same sinking feeling

like the sunset at dusk

exposed to the masses

stripped of your husk



down desperation road

in the dark of the night

nothing is moving

but it seems like it might



might be ghosts

have arisen

to claim back their souls

or a man out of prison

and out of control





might be the beginning

of a long desperate road

and dreams are the hazard

that warnings forebode



nobody’s been listening

nor cares to see

that conditions are worse

than predicted to be



morale at the ebb tide

the waning full moon

down desperation road

but the end isn’t soon



there’s a harrowing hollow

and howling horror

the fears of today

have grown by tomorrow



what won’t do no good

to protest or balk

rules of the road

outlined in chalk

it’s reckless and ruthless

and lawlessness rules

tolls have been levied

and sanctioned by fools





the bridge is still burning

there’s no turning back

down desperation road

a one railway track



the road full of litter

carcasses. blood

a time bomb is ticking

this time it’s no dud



this time the answer

is “let’s wait and see”

the rest is a remnant

and bad memory



strident. No mercy

no hazards to be

the kingdom has folded

and justice is free



the road, like a side show

with mirrors and magic

the depth and dimension

and growing more tragic





such situations

might never exist

until every name

is removed from the list



its proven and prudent

noteworthy and noble

the wide spreading terror

full blown and gone global



the worldly are weary

gone down for the count

down desperation road

on an unsteady mount



precipitous movements

and a moment of shock

take stock of emotions

the exist ramp’s blocked



it’s free to light candles

and dance in the sand

down desperation road

as the boundaries’ expand

FOR THIS HOUSE NEVER SLEEPS(writtn so many years ago, cant recall when

a house, what images the word conjures up...

a shack, a shanty, a mansion or palace...

perhaps the world...






For This House Never Sleeps©

by rak



for this house never sleeps

the tables overflow

sometimes the well runs dry

sometimes famines grow

but this house never sleeps

nor ever locks the door

it answers how and why

and even says what for

tho this house never sleeps

it often creeps and weeps

and feels what real with stealth and steel

and responds in bounds and leaps



for this house never sleeps

what turmoil marches in

what havoc in a maverick maze

what decadence and sin

and how indeed could this house sleep

when peace and quiet knows no home

with every window cracked with grief

and stained with tears in morning glome

and this house never sleeps

entrenched in trouble steep

a universe dieing of thirst

an ocean sinking deep



for this house never sleeps

the walls forever haunted

and the bloodstains all are smeared

almost as tho they’re flaunted

and this house never sleeps

nor secrets does it tell

so full of scars and open wounds

yet wears them very well

no, this house never sleeps

perhaps, perchance a peep

it oversees o’er land and seas

and gives what no one keeps



for this house never sleeps

it couldn’t if it tried

too many souls are lost

too many young have died

and this house never sleeps

in a world where hope is lost

where all that’s left are dreams

of how to pay the cost

for this house never sleeps

the dirt it sweeps in heaps

the dust encrusted, to be entrusted

to be once more asleep.

manof_darkness
manof_darkness: Very nicely written, makes me think of this old house I own. We have lived here for over 30 years and it has seen all my kids grow and leave to start their own lives. And now the grand kids come to stay a while too. I wonder what this old house will be when we have lived our lives till the end what will it become when we are done.

sometimes, when one wakes up,

one doesn't know for sure

where they end up...



Woke Up On A Ladder©

by rak



i woke up on a ladder
don’t know which way to climb
either way
i’m half-way there
either way
i’m fighting time



i ring each rung each step i take
and each rung rings me back
i’m reminded of a nitemare
where each block’s bleak and black



footstep,
weary footstep
my grip just gropes and grasps and grabs
perhaps i’ll just disintegrate
slip thru these knife wound stabs



the end is surely coming
i might not make it there
i just may drift away again
and find i’ve gone nowhere



i woke up on a ladder
the signs read up and down
i don’t feel much like reading
the sky’s on somber ground



i woke up on a ladder
or am i still asleep
of all that i’ve been given
there’s nothing i can keep

i borrowed one more minute
then i should have from the start
did i dismiss my very soul
to hear my beating heart



there’s leaders on this ladder
with plans to rule the world
they take themselves too serious
their truths have turned and twirled



there’s light and dark
and black and white
everywhere i look
and another explanation
and another puzzling hook



and i’m standing on this ladder
do i dare take a step
do i dare make one more foolish move
will i still be in debt
