»Putting A Thought Out There«

by Edward Iacona, Nov 30, 2009

Putting pen to paper makes / Inner voices very clear. / Of a desire no longer secret / For the cosmos (plus one) to hear. / / Positive thoughts are focused, / Projected strong and true. / Encouraged within my spirit, / By the joy of knowing YOU. / / Some logic here for you to see, / Although…  sign in to read more »

by Ashok Kumar Madhunlall, Nov 19, 2009

Their hands are clasped, / Smiling - for the gift of time / Has been granted to them. / She is dressed in a snow white sari, / He in an equally hued kurtha. / Into the temple they gingerly enter / And their daily obeisance / To The Lord offer. / They emerge - still holding hands, / Smiling, greeting, just…  sign in to read more »


»Another bet«

by Filiberto Rodriguez, Nov 6, 2009

How deep do you want me to go? / All the time you're talking about this other friend / coveting your things for $50.00. / For what it's worth, you might as well hand it over. / You are not thinking straight. / I gave you a good deal and it's not the deal! / You're actually thinking twice to make another…  sign in to read more »

by Happy Towers Mhebheru Mhlongo, Sep 16, 2009

Let love shine / To greater kingdom / Love needs us to pursue it / Need to shine trough us / What a happy day we'll find love / Through the mystery of true love / Oh it's an ever fixed mark / It is the star to every wandering bark / Whose creator is unknown to us, although his voice is known / Let it shine…  sign in to read more »


»something about the first rose«

by Casey Samantha Boshoff, Aug 5, 2009

There is something about / A comforting hug and a tissue at a funeral / That brings contentment to a devastated soul / That brings contentment to a plight when sadness, pain and death prevail / / There is something about / The fear of a black thunderstorm / That brings knowledge of the peace to come / That…  sign in to read more »

I think I'm falling for her, said a man to a star / It had been two weeks since he wished upon it, / While lying on the bonnet of his car. / / Make her kind, make her lovely, / make her only mine. / Take her heart fill it with love / and send her on a ray of sunshine / / Oh heavenly being, hear my wish…  sign in to read more »

My love you're my desperado / And I'd never let you go / I swear I'd buy you a rose / And save the last dance / / Because this love is unbreakable / You're the only one who can heal me / You make me fly without wings / That's why I lay my love on you / / You're the queen of my heart / You are everything to…  sign in to read more »


»Listen«

by Christopher Kudyahakudadirwe, Apr 4, 2009

Listen to the sounds of the world; / the clamour during the day, / the muted muffles of the night, / listen to the sounds of the world. / / Listen to hungry children / suckle dry dams on bony breasts. / To the agony of the dying / as they gasp for the last, listen! / / Let there be silence / Oh, just for a…  sign in to read more »

That tone of dogs: / Is the one that turns her!!! / Make her the legend of Africa / That made her the best of the best / That gives her the name "Mama Africa" / That made her think of tomorrow. / / That tone of birds: / Made her tune on the radio / That made her say "I'm a Diva" / Made her say "I'm a…  sign in to read more »


»Finally Home«

by Raine Lariza, Mar 20, 2009

I have seen so many faces / I have been into many places / Different walks of life I have seen / But still confused on what's been missing / / Searching for the empty part that fills my heart / Hoping that one day I will never be apart / Apart from someone I can call "home" / From each sad and happy…  sign in to read more »

by Raine Lariza, Mar 20, 2009

Sometimes you may feel / Your problems are too much to deal / Sometimes you'll see that the heavy loads are all on you / And you'll say, you're in way too blue / / Try to look up in the sky / Just maybe you can seek some light / Never hesitate to call my name / Always bear in your mind that I am your…  sign in to read more »

by Marlene Cozett, Jan 26, 2009

Yes I still have some / It's like looking in a mirror so very long ago / When being free, was sitting in a tree / / I get free hugs, free kisses, at every turn / Kisses and hugs without the burn / / Whispering secrets and special stories, / Laughing at mistakes, nothing so serious / / When being silly is…  sign in to read more »

by Mamello Monageng, Nov 3, 2008

I do know that we look at the world differently / even when raised by the same mother / The thing is, it sees us not the same / look not at me in awe when I define to you my world / / The way I see it, it is both pain and happiness- / these are the only things that matters the most. / The two creates the…  sign in to read more »
