Offspring Poetry

Song Is Also Seen As Poetry, so here's a few good ones

One Fine Day

If I had a perfect day
I would have it start this way
Open up the fridge and have a tall boy
Yeah

Then I'd meet up with my friends
Head out to the game again
We don't even really care who wins
Now excitement seems to grow
When we're hangin' with the bro's
When we're chillin' and we pound a case of Stroh's
Now the game is cool to see
You can "High 5" on TV
Count the riot on the one two three
Operation is in sight
And the field is open wide
When you break it then you know you're still alive
If the cops don't make you pay
And you make your getaway
Then you know
That's one fine day

On that day before we're through
We could torch a car or two
Then have ourselves another tall boy
Yeah

Water hoses and batons
That's the real game that's on
I don't really give a shit who wins

I believe it's my god-given right
To destroy everything in my sight
Cause it never gets dull, it never gets old
The only thing it gets is more bold
Drinkin', fightin', going to the game
In our world it's a way to stay sane
If you're asking me
To have it my way, I'd say that's
One fine day

All I Want

Day after day your home life's a wreck
The powers that be just
Breathe down your neck
You get no respect
You get no relief
You gotta speak up
And yell out your piece
So back off your rules
Back off your jive
Cause I'm sick of not living
To stay alive
Leave me alone
I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled
That's all I want
All I want
How many times is it gonna take
Till someone around you hears what you say
You've tried being cool
You feel like a lie
You've played by their rules
Now it's their turn to try
So back off your rules
Back off your jive
Cause I'm sick of not living
To stay alive
Leave me alone
I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled
That's all I want
All I want
I said it before
I'll say it again
If you could just listen
Then it might make sense

Don't Pick It Up

I saw a little kid
As he walked around
He picked a candy bar up
Off the ground
He chowed about a half
Then his face turned blue
Turned out that candy bar was doggy-doo
Don't pick it up I say
Unless you can throw it away
Don't pick it up I say
You're gonna be bummed that you went that way

You're out there makin' bacon
No scrutiny
You mess around too much
And you got VD
You know you never think
And you're sore today
You're gonna take it back to California
Don't pick it up I say
Unless you can throw it away
Don't pick it up I say
You're gonna be bummed that you went that way

My friend was kinda hurtin'
For a girl to try
He saw one that looked like Pat
On Saturday Night Live
It had a pair of thingies
But a mustache too
Not clearly male nor female
So now what to do
Don't pick it up I say
Unless you can throw it away
Don't pick it up I say
You're gonna be bummed that you went that way

The Kids Aren't Alright

When we were young the future was so bright
The old neighborhood was so alive
And every kid on the whole damn street
Was gonna make it big and not be beat

Now the neighborhood's cracked and torn
The kids are grown up but their lives are worn
How can one little street
Swallow so many lives

Chances thrown
Nothing's free
Longing for what used to be
Still it's hard
Hard to see
Fragile lives, shattered dreams

Jamie had a chance, well she really did
Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids
Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job
He just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot

Jay committed suicide
Brandon OD'd and died
What the hell is going on
The cruelest dream, reality

Heres another one that I just made up...

I sit here reflecting on the day,
Wondering how it wasted away.

Bound by chain of dwarven magic, A tale of trickery, long and tragic,
Sword in jaw, awaiting the day, Ragnarok, when all gods shall pay

Based on Ian the Korean's words ..


: Day Dreams
Quote:
As I sit here reflecting on the day,
Wondering how it wasted away
It all comes to do this
what is it that is needed
which is the proper way
how can it be meaningful

As I sit here thinking about yesterday
Wondering what happend to me
Where was that happy go lucky attitude
that part of me that I like so much
buried under tonnes of burden
hidden away from public opinion

Someday someone will come along
looking at this pathatic soul
saying it used to be different
maybe if he just tried a bit harder
he could have stayed the same
where night is as bright as day
and hope is never too far away

So I sit here idlely
wondering how the day is wasted away
Uttering words that will never be heard
Someday it will be different again
Hope this makes sense to people ... because it means so much more to me ...

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

i worte this for PabUK's poetry competition.

love poem not to be delivered

i do not love you, i do not know what love is.
you have to teach me.
you blush, the redness in your face stopping me
from doing what i had been thinking about doing all night.
i need to talk to you. butterflies stop me,
small ang fragile, they fly around in my belly,
preventing me from saying anything.
strong enough to withstand the fire in the whole of my
being that burns for you.

i feel ice forming between us,
thin warm ice, between two oceans.
but no matter how warm or thin, it still separates us.
how do i break through? a single word,
shared between you and i
will shatter it and force our oceans to flow together.
it will be inpossible to tell where one ends and another begins.
inseparable, forever.
this scares me too. i dont know what to do.
we will both withdraw, and the ice will get thicker,
until one of us breaks it-
but that is so hard to do.

now,
i love you.



its slightly changed, though.


In space no one can hear you scream.

The Key

Just a glance is the Key that opens my heart
Unlocks feelings of Joy and surprise
As a smile ventures through these blue portals from you
For no secret is safe in the eyes.

Ah, Staffy ... your words are beautiful.

I see alot more fun coming our way ...

Good to see Jarsonic again, and the words you do are truly an art by itself. Glad to see you participating again.

Nemesis, my vote is that we do one living poet society in a more regualr basis maybe get winamp to sponsor a few too ... ... since our people here are so talented.

Here is some thing to pass some time ...

: A simple thing
Quote:
Deep inside every mans hopes
are sweet dreams of innocent souls
tunes with no flats or sharps
with angel faces in every corner
such a nice place to live

Strumming of guitar strings
and the whistles of working man
its like the old frontier again
every day a challenge by itself

Back home in the kitchens
the wives prepares the night
urshing the cookies into the oven
singing light tunes in baby dreams

What a nice place to live
living might be a little hard
but people are happy with what they do
and love is strong
and life is hard to break
my simple utopian land
a place of dreams upon dreams

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

great site

thanks for the invite izzy

well i was a bit apprehensive about posting anything but i guess it would be selfish not to after reading all that has been posted so far. glad to share.

so here goes, more angst to come.

title: Song of you.

Settle you down close to me
Your whift drift over me
I capsize
Harrow my shallows
Scarecrows and arrows
Sacrificed
Felony of melodies
Contrary our harmony
Serenade
Symmetry our parody
Lay fallen ambiguity
Intimacy
Shattered enraptured
Incantation imperfection
Your beauty
Pretending normalcy
Incessantly your sorcery
Charm me

Coop,

Nice to have you on board ... always happy to have more people contribute to the thread.

Go on people ... go out and invite more people in here, the more poets the better ...

: Something Share
Quote:
I don't like to be alone
when I have something to share
it is like having the secret of life
and not being able to tell anyone
Don't you just hate it when you are all alone
with the biggest news in the world
and no one that you can give it to?

It feels like bursting into a thousand pieces
when you keep it all inside
the biggest news since Newton found gravity

Just open up and give it out
let the feelings flow
make your soul soar up high and smile
share the greatest gift to everyone
tell them what you feel inside
show them what we have
the ultimate freedom to be ourselves again
Guess what I am talking about ...

VIVA people ...

One last post for the day ...
enjoy.


: The common lie
Quote:
Plese don't lie to me
when you say forever
how long is forever to you
1 year or 2 years down the road

Please don't say what you don't mean to keep
when you say you love me
what is it that you hope for me to see
you love my car or was it my money

I don't think I can stand it anymore
under constant presure to give you more
everytime you set your eyes on me
I feel the heat turn up one hundred degrees

Just go away and leave me in peace
I am broken and you don't really need me
all that I have you already taken
what more do you wish of me

Please don't say that those don't mean a thing
that you only see me in your eyes
I am hurt enough already
why do you still torture me so

I once knew love without feeling pain inside
now that is but a memory long ago
so when you say forever
how long is that
is it the end of your life or the end of mine
A bit sad but hey ... can't help myself when the words come pouring.

Izchan is a plagarist!!!!! ...

and a communist!!!!! ...

and I'm out of things to call him already...


Just kidding Izchan!




I just had one of very rare strokes of genius...This thread should be taken by someone, edited, and then we get it published and each take a share of the profits based on the number of poems we wrote!

I will refrain from ian's sudden outburst ...
for it is to my understanding that man must be given a right to express what it is that is haunting in their minds.

Now that is out of the way ...


here is today's contribution

: Meanings in you
Quote:
We should have known better than that
all the answers were given a long time ago
and yet me make the same mistakes again
can't we just open up and see properly
nothing is quite what it seems
having trouble getting with the meaning
what so hard about all those words
when all we just need to do was listen
all we had to do was learn
Some say that it was just another point of view
some said that it was just sounds
how many times do we need to go through these cycle
it is not some long lost language
it is the one we use everyday
it is the language of love
love life like yourself
love is all that matters
just give love and you will soar
it all comes down to this
just love between you and me
Enjoy again people ...
love you all ....

Name by Me

He breathes in and out
Coldness holds him close
A wave of a vague emotion
Sweeps in
He can feel it
He can't comprehend it
It hurts and softens his insides
It shakes his soul,
His ravaged soul,
Scarred by what he's done
And what has been done to him
He carries this phantom emotion
And nothing else
It's been there, always
Fueled by then and now
It never lets him forget
He takes another breath again
And lives
He lives by what he's done
He lives with the only thing he carries

sscw46, this is something that is quite good. It took me 4 readings before I finanlly started to understand the emotions within the words. But yet I was thrown off track by the title of the poem. Shoudn't the title be something to do with decisons of actions or choices? But none the less the poem is good. I enjoyed it tremeandously.

As for menesis, yes I will wait eagerly for the day of the posting.

Here is another something to read ...

: Beads of time
Quote:
as the last second tick away
A day has passed,
marking the end of the month,
indicating a year has gone by
where a millenium is no more
yet only a portion in a blink of an eye
so many meanings in one instance of time

As time age gracefully
thus so do I
Hinging upon each seconds of it
forming my identity within these instances
Painting the monet of my life
Enjoy.

I can understand why you were thrown off track. You see, I am absolutely hopeless when it comes to naming my poems and stories. The song "Name" by the Goo Goo Dolls was part of the inspiration to write this, so I just named the poem after the song. You're right; I'm going to try to change the title to something that fits.

Thank you very much for your feedback!

Neargh.

hey sscw46, your welcomed. I was afraid that I will have offended you by my sentence, but your response was so positive that it just made my day.

I have trouble with titles too, in which I usually just pick a sentence off my poem that is has the closest meaning to my poem and use it. But sometimes the title is so obvious that I can just pick it out of the air.

Keep posting, for I really enjoy your method of writing. It takes depth to write like that, and that is talent.

We have very deversify poets on these threads, if you go through each one of them, you will find that each of them have an artistic touch that is unique and distint.

Hope you enjoy this thread as much as I do starting it.

: Shaping Destiny
Quote:
I have a dream
of a place where there is no room for doubt
in a time where loving is a habit
and giving is a way of life

I have a wish
of ending all those thoughts of deception
in a venue of care for common interest
and empathy becomes the usual way

I have a hope
of building a monument of principles
in the hearts of the many
and man growing into its next phase of life
Something that you guys might enjoy.

peace.

Constructive critcism never offends me. It's only responses like, "YOU SUCK" that piss me off.

Good strategy! As you can see, I just "steal" the names of songs for my work.

Quote:

Thank you! But I've only begun writing a couple months ago, and this is the first real poem that sort of poured out of me during study hall at school. I will keep it up though, as I become more used to it. If I come up with another one, I'll be sure to post it here first.

By the way, "Shaping Destiny" is truly beautiful. Did you write it?

All the poem that I have posted on this thread is written by me.

If I post a poem written by someone else, I will state the original writers name under the title.

Shapping Destiny is one of mine yes ... ... thanks ... I am happy that you enjoyed it. I usually try to post as much poems on the thread as mentally possible. I write almost constantly every day, it helps stimulates my dying braincells.

Plus it is good for my mental health.

I am glad that you are starting on with poetry, as it is a stepping stone to something bigger. Some of the best writers in the world are great poets.

Take heart, there is never a bad poem, only misunderstood words.

I did not write this but someone I know did I think alot of us can relate to it and though it should be posted.

once again the pain is there


time slips slowly
the wait is pure agony
i think of the time we had
and what it meant to me
once again the pain is there

time ive spent
waiting and longing
to hear your voice
and taste your lips
once again the pain is there

i wonder what
is to become of us
hoping for the best
dreading the worst
once again the pain is there

i sit alone
in a room of dark
listening to the sounds of you
remembering the things youve said
once again the pain is there

awake in the middle of the night
i lay here thinking of you
things to ask
things to say
once again the pain is there

i close my eyes
and picture your face
the look in your eyes
the despair in your smile
once again the pain is there

i drop to my knees
and pray to above
that i can be with you again
waiting for an answer
once again the pain is there

I've been c0rrupted in a world of make.believe.

Hehe, yes it is good for a person. Especially in times of anger or grief. It's sort of a release.

Vixen gal,

That poem was great. Do you think you can get your friend to join us here and start posting some more of those great poems so that we can all enjoy the words of such an artistic soul?

Oh to read it again makes me feel the age old pain that is there again.

Trully the emotions that touches the core of our being.

I can try.
He doesn't come online very much anymore.
He was really hurt by someone he met online and then later met in IRL.
Next time I talk to him I will ask him or maybe have him send me some stuff of his I can post.

Here is something that I just cooked up from a phrase that I use so very often.

: A Common Mistake
Quote:
Life is but another point of view
to say that one lived in poverty
is to say that one lives in monotomy
where day by day the same applies
no change or diversity in anything
what one will expect from the dead
death in both mind and soul
a true walking zombie

Nothing in life is ever absolute
and nothing is ever predictable
who can tell me what the future holds
when even the presents keep changing
one step to the left can take you to heaven
or take you down straight to hell
every choice is a new begining
and every begining marks a new ending
Destiny is a tune of many notes
and we the maestro of this symphony

So look to life in a different eye
see things that was never seen before
enjoy the sights of true geniuses
and learn from the trully dumb
for each has a story to tell
and a morale to grow from
in life there is never a meaningless trial
only misunderstood results which man faults
Take heart, the world is what we make of it, and not what it makes of us.

Laugh people ... smile until eternity ends.

giddy up .........

enjoy the readings here, hope to get inspiration to write new stuff soon


Ungrounded
In a perfect world
By some surreal chance
We can stand together
Here, today, tonight

I can't tell apart
It be a dream or a farce
Right in the middle
Here, today, tonight

Is it the kaleidoscope
Window of possibilities
Of what might be
Here, today, tonight

At the very tip
Balancing on souls not feet
Eyes open and alive
Here, today, tonight

The starting of my day, nothing is going right, not even my poems ...

: Bad Hair Day
Quote:
Have you ever had a day
where everything that can go wrong
will go wrong in any possible manner

Have you ever had a moment
where things should have been different
yet it was far from correct

Have you ever had a thought
that the world just hates you
and you will be better off dead

well if you are there
and you think you should not be
then just walk away
for there will always be days like that
where nothing works
and there seems to be no hope
just walk away and move on
seek the our peace inside

The choice is ours to make
whether to give in to pressure
or bounce back and fight
Try to look at it in a different light
because that is where new answers are found
and that is where things will be right
Hope this helps me move on.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

i'm..... astounded, so i'm a bit tenative about throwing this out, but... i will, it's important to me. I don't write much, but when i do i usually like what i come out with.

Quote:
Portrait

I feel the anger sitting there,
Perched upon my back,
Clawing at my long-repairing heart,
And ripping out the substance
Of my tranquility.
it's my shortest, but i still like it.

more to come.

Welcome PhotoFx.

The poem you have is without doubt a work from the heart. I can feel the claws and heartache that comes with it. The pain is extreme, I can almost cry.

oh, don't worry about the length of the poem, it is the content, as long as the message gets across then it has serve its purpose.

Your poem came at the right time in my current situation, as I feel deeply with those words.

Definately something that I need to work on.

Here is something for you too

: Words
Quote:
Words of the heart
forms answers in our eyes
lets our deepest secret open
and lifts the veil in our lives
letting in warmth of GOD's light
try and guess what this poem means ....

Thank you for your lovely poem. Please keep it coming.

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

well, if it's religious, then i'm out, i block out most religious references, to make sure people know waht they're saying (one reason i'm so obtuse sometimes as well) but otherwise i'd say that it's about talking one's self either into or out of something. and don't get mad at me if i'm wrong. it's the common occurence.

The poem is saying that which
Words that are sincere allows people to see things in a more open way where they can then be able to express truthfully.

In a nut shell ... it is saying treat others in sincerity so that we can all be honest with our own feelings.

The theme of the poem was honesty.

GOD's light here means that the serenity within the heart when one is honest to themselves.

Will talk to you guys later.

Good night.

: ALL BECAUSE YOU SMILED!
Author Unknown (Found in www.vermontteddybear.com)

Quote:
Sometimes you feel you want to cry
And life seems such a trial...
But above the clouds there's a bright blue sky
To make your tears a smile.

As you travel along life's way
With its many ups and downs,
Remember that it's true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns!

Happiness comes at times to all,
But sadness comes unbidden...
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.

So when your friends are feeling down
And troubles round them piled...
The world will seem a better place
And all because YOU SMILED!
Saw the poem and thought that it was a nice to read. So here you have it.

I was invited here by izchan, because of a poem of mine submitted to a different poetry thread. Here is my poem. Hope you like it!

Road Away

This is too much,
Others have more
Of what I need,
What I want.
The road away,
North, winding north
Away from too little,
Away from too much.

Winding north to the bridge,
High above the city below,
Which is insignificant.
They have more,
They have less
Of what I hate.

I hit the ground.

The following poem is meant for all that is going through a bad or hard time in experiences that was unexpected and devastating.

But most of all this poem is for Trista, her family and friends.

: The simple truths
Quote:
Sometimes things don't turn out
the way that they should
thus we should be vigilant to see it coming

There will also be times
when we can't see the outcome
so we must learn to be brave
and accept it as it is

Then there will be some cases
when we can't hold on anymore
then be humble and ask for help
and not be alone to bare the burden

Yet most importantly
we must learn that we are human
and we live and die
by the decisions that we make
And understand that
living is nothing more than
strings of questions with simple answers
that will make or break our credence
that will make or break our lives
Take heart dear, you are never alone here.

Sitting in front of my workstation for an entire day, looking at my screens. No able to do a single piece of work.

: Where has my senses gone
Quote:
I lay here silently
unable to think
unable to move

Where has my senses gone
I can't see my eyes no more
my ears are deaf to the world

Am I alive at all?
or is my concious refusing to admit
that the body has pass over
and the mind is in denial

An entire day gone
like eternity
forever without ending
I wished this feeling will go away

oh where has my senses gone
please let me find it soon
so that I can end this struggle
and just move on
need I say more?

Sometimes it is just being me that counts

Feeling bummed at work poems

yo izzy-chan

true one of the weirdest places we write is at work and also about he frustrations we face there.... inspired by bein not inspired, how ironic!

here's a piece i did at work a year ago

<Pyramids of the Souls>

thrown into by a leap of faith
a new beginning to start our end
looking for cracks to this vacuum
an empty draw of breathless air
where we belong an unknown truth
of lost beginnings and fruitlessness
drifting from one phase to another
even in end unrest and disturbed
nonchalance of our existence
we tread over printless steps
brushing past worthy castaways
arriving to our final resthouse
