Nobody Shall Ask You 2 Stop

When it comes to arithmetic,

1 plus 1 is equal to 2,

The equality is perfectly true.

when it comes to opinions at a poll,

1 plus 1 may not be equal to 2,

YES may be canceled by NO.

Equality reflects life’s quality,

One shall be aware of conflicts in reality.

Equality in life is everyone’s dream,

That’s how M. L. K. won his fame.

When it comes to blogging,

Everyone has the freedom in posting.

It does not matter where you live,

It does not matter what you believe,

Your RIGHT to blog is there,

An equal opportunity for all to shine and share.

Nobody shall ask you to stop,

Nobody shall act like a blogging cop.

Do your own share,

Never threat or scare…

Writing posts is like driving your own car,

do it with care,

near or far,

Enjoy your ride with zero despair.

People may disagree,

But RESPECT is to be maintained for free.

Grow your own friendship tree,

Stop blog bullying from blocking your way.

This poem is inspired by the prompt offered at Poets United: Thursday Thinking Tank..

http://poetryblogroll.blogspot.com/2010/09/thursday-think-tank-prompt-17.html

our world is filled with people of different gender, race, background, and age…Blog hosts such as wordpress.com and blogger.com offer everyone an equal opportunity to express yourself, make visual or online friends, and built up solid writing skills…This is a renaissance in celebrating FREEDOM of expression, EQUALITY in global sense.

Let’s cherish it, honor it!

at last, I want to share a quote with you:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievance.”

Hope

Too small for U. S. Cents,

Too rare to be in historical museum,

Too heavy to make sense,

Too abstract to dwell in the hands of the child.

.

A shooting star soars cross the sky,

A spark flashes through the squeezing rocks,

A lightening flies by,

A basket of wool to make warm socks.

.

All promises freeze like ice,

All greetings ring like bells.

All gamblers focus on the dice,

All smiles ripple under the spells.

.

Hides behind the time that flies,

Dances in the hands that knit ties.

Hope is like the invisible air,

It makes stirs everywhere….

If All The Words Go Flat

If all the words go flat

Like the knap of a kitten’s back,

Do you ruffle the page

to show your waves of rage?

Do you Rally your courage

Trying not to discourage?

Do you rabble up the rouse

To insult someone’s spouse?

Do you plant more pain

Or figure out a way to explain?

Maybe you shall refrain

From emotional explosion,

I will try to remain

in a position

Where I am nowhere

near

artificial fame,

man-made shame,

Luxurious repasts,

Hatred blasts,

Big bigotry,

Polluted factory….

I will lean back,

Take a deep breath,

A Funky Fairy Tale By Trisha

A demon loved an angel
To the limit of insanity
They are not for each other
This much he knew for sure
He knew she will walk away
The moment he shows himself
So he donned a mask
Conned her into loving him.

But what could he do to himself
Soon the mask started to peel
The angel left him
When the mask fell off his face.
First she was angry and bitter
Then he realized his helplessness
His heart was forcing him
To hound her to force her to him.

The demon got furious
Believed her a traitor
He called her names, taunted her
She asked him to change himself
He refused said her love was fake
tried to make her jealous, bitter
hit her from every angle, corner
she reminded him she was an angel.

To have an angel in his arms
He will have to be one
A simple truth that can’t be undone
Oil and water can’t mingle
Black and white can’t embrace
To mingle with each other
They have to be same
Or sacrifice himself in absolute sense.
