  1. I’m Just Saying…


    There are some that without kindness
    tell us, “Bear your cross, don’t drag it!”,
    as if we’re bound for Golgotha
    and this knowledge should redeem us;
    While the one who then first traveled there
    fell several times in his despair
    Defeated for his speaking truth
    yet who indeed was aided,
    relieved of his burden along the way
    and bloody sweat wiped off his face
    All, to leave his mark on the human race…
    Yet his legacy goes unacknowledged
    in those who won’t embrace compassion
    They proclaim they follow him alone,
    yet without putting love into their actions
    For such are the same who also say,
    “God never gives more than a soul can bear”
    Their self-righteousness the same as of old,
    these Pharisees would never dare
    or deign to walk, nor tread anywhere
    lesser than their own comfort zone,
    and so looking down from their pedestals,
    leaving those who suffer,
    as ever,
    alone.

    Another excellent opus! You sure can say it, lady! I've never read anything of yours that I didn't like. You've got the gift. The gift that keeps on giving. Keep 'em coming!:smile:

    It is easy enough for people to tell others to bear their crosses when their own have been blessed with featherweight, those motherfuckers.

    Why aren't you famous yet, Gabberstiltskin
     
  6. Ah...most days it seems like I'm working my way more towards being infamous!! :wink:

    Your poetry is far better than so many published poets today. You should be 'famous' or at the least, making a living from it. I'll never understand reality...:blink:

    I agree with everyone else in this thread, you should be "famous." Your words usually have a profound message, while maintaining a taught flow. Two things that are hard to put into tandem. So yeah, keep on writing, as they say.
     
  9. "Tandem"? I do tandem??

    Why, I can't even chew gum and walk at the same time!!

    (thanks SO much!)

    Very well done! Impressive. This gave me goose bumps, even though I'm a "technically a heathen". You do have a gift!
     
  11. Why, I ADORE heathens!!!:biggrin:
    Some of the best folks on the planet!

    ...And I concede to your ultimately superior 'punsterisms' as well, Acy :worthy:

    (btw - did you know that "gift" means "poison" in German??) :wink:
