Risk - poetry
Do not be frightened to shine. This world needs what you have to give. Open up the areas of your being; expose them to physically - to others. You are valuable. You are unique. You have much to give. Do not be scared to give it.
As we risk ourselves, we grow. Each new come across is a risk: we can try, and maybe fail, and as a result, grow - or hold back and stagnate.
You have the aptitude to be whatever thing you want to be! You are free to choose. You are imperfect only by your fears. Let your dreams take over, fly with the eagles, soar into life, the world is behind you for you!

Four Poems: Two for the Devil, Two for Peru
Here is some witty poetry (not sure if that is the appropriate word: witty, but it will do): one poem on the Aztec year 2012, a year that has been in the public's eye quite a lot; one on cloning, and the biblical end time events--which, if I may add seems ripe for the monster actions that are said to take place; and two poems big business with some tradtions of Peru; one imparticular, on vacationing, where not to go; all the makings for some thought.Aztec BabyOn December 25, 2012 AD The Devil had an idea- He'd clone himself In the form of a baby; Called the Antichrist.
Passion and Poetry, and Life
Ironically, the passion that can counteract the nausea for difficulties depends on the crack to overcome these difficulties. The irony resides in the circularity of this assumption - which applies to all areas of activity, counting poetry: One must make the endeavor to overcome difficulties to do accomplishment and feel capable, and one needs this achievement and affection to have a passion for building this effort.
Three Poems and Paradise Lost [One for Hell, One for Heaven one for an Inca King]
The White water of HellHell's furnace- Likened to a chimney Vomits her torrents Of flames- Into the air Through earths crust And the earth's trembles-!Agitated, she projects A thick curtain of smoke To heat the feet of those Who provoke her every wish. Like molten iron She waits for the soul(the moment) Then molds, into her enclosure Human serpents? Out of savage flesh!No storm, no struggle No eruption, no typhoon, Just a terrible phenomenon, Hell is able of producing; And upon death, Back into the Abyss They melt!.

Black Blood, in Jeremiahs Vines - A Poem and an Article
Black Blood, in Jeremiah's Vines [A Dream Poem]And I heard the crackling of wood, and I noticed the Lord God had made men of wood, and fire came from his mouth.Then the wind poured its grief upon us-over our sins; and I heard the words for the seventh time, "Go to the mountains!"Foolish associates of this land pray and understand-for He cometh! Thereof, toss manually to thy knees, for the roar of disobedient men will bleed: black blood, because of the vines of Jeremiah.

Two Poems with Triggers [and a commentary]
So Many Einstein'sThe break of day mist, insists there is a God. The earth ashes faithful to its orbit.
Kafka lands resurrected in Crewe deposited by a shiny alien craft, And even as he is wondering what to do He is asked to show his pass Or pay an instantaneous one off fine At a cash distributor of his choice And they are read-through all the time On his irises face and voice.And of classes they find that he is not, They determine he just cannot be there, Although he seems as if he is visible, And has hands and toes and hair, If he is not on the Great Data Bank, He plainly and easily cannot be, He is not programmed and he is not ranked He is clearly not like you and me.
I am not the one I was ahead of yesterday.I cannot go back.
There are many times I set up barriers and walls, invisible if you come too close, And then you hit them.You amazement what happened.
