    O Ye Little Faith

    When will you learn to take each moment as it comes without faltering.Whining at what it might turn out to be.Your lack of trust is a great handicap, and it is organically tied with your inner wealth. Which turns out to be dust and ashes.

    Mecanicity ?

    The usage of rhymes is too often a mechanical adaptation of identical sounds. The assembly of words and ideas without mechanical research is often closer to real human feelings.

    Poet.

    Three things which inspire the poet: An eye to see the world with brightness A heart which smells with sincerity And the courage to return it loyally.

    No Need to Rhyme

    You can write a poem without a rhyme. Rhyming is irrelevant when poetry is the subject.

    When You're Alone.

    What do you feel when you're alone? Not a speckle or sparkle nor barely a particle, of noun. No single wisp or eyes upon, Places left or future gone. With no judgment of actions or words or faces, How do you act with no one to occupy these spaces? Does red water spill over your...
