Post a poem thread...
 
Aye-up forummers... How about having a thread where poems can be posted by forummers without having them falling out of cyberspace and into obscurity on page 12.

If we regularly update this thread with our poems and random lyrical thoughts
then we can have a place to keep track of the poetic talents of the many Icke forum members, through the weeks and months of forum activity.


One of my efforts:

Wheels of history.

It’s the grinding of the wheels of history
The milling of hearts for their blood
The story of demons and kings and their mystery
Where neither side is any much good

The underground stream
Where money runs deep
Drown for your dreams
But the dead don’t sleep

It’s madness only madness
All you need to know
Nut jobs, crack pots, crazies and head cases
All running the show

We are the pawns
All the squares are black
Stop playing games
It’s your world take it back

Do you feel at home?
Or have we got the burglars in?
Do you feel alone?
Cos you’re the only one noticing?

It’s madness only madness
All you need to know
Nut jobs crack pots crazies and head cases
All running the show

Don’t worry, s’just a phase
Of planetary hypnosis
And we live life in a daze
Of mutually induced psychosis.

It doesn’t hurt to make a stand
It doesn’t hurt to pray
And if we take the world in hand
We might all get better some day

Good idea ep. I'll add this one......

Is It Because...

Why am I here?
Why do I have no freedom?
Why is my food and water poisoned?
Why am I brainwashed and injected with toxins?
Why am I told what to do?
Why am I told what to believe?
Is it because......
Is it because......
Is it because......
You love me mummy!

I love poems that throw questions at you.... Hmmmm. Good one.

The story goes:

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a small hospital near Tampa, Florida, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.

Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, they found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.

One nurse took her copy to Missouri. The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the St. Louis Association for Mental Health. Note that, while this poem says “nurses,” we all – every one of us – must put ourselves into this spot.

Crabby Old Man

What do you see nurses? .......What do you see?
What are you thinking......when you're looking at me?
A crabby old man, ....not very wise,
Uncertain of habit ........with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food.......and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice....."I do wish you'd try!"
Who seems not to notice ....the things that you do.
And forever is losing .............. A sock or shoe?

Who, resisting or not...........lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding ...... The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking? Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse......you're not looking at me.

I'll tell you who I am ....... As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, .....as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten......with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters ......who love one another

A young boy of Sixteen ...........with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now. .........a lover he'll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty .........my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows........that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now .......... I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide ...... And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty ......... My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other ......... With ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons ........have grown and are gone,
But my woman's beside me........to see ! I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, ......... Babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children ....... My loved one and me.

Dark days are upon me .......... My wife is now dead.
I look at the future ...........I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing .......young of their own.
And I think of the years...... And the love that I've known.

I'm now an old man.........and nature is cruel.
'Tis jest to make old age .......look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles..........grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone........where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass ...... A young guy still dwells,
And now and again .......my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys.............. I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living.............life over again.

I think of the years ...all too few......gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact........that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people .........open and see..
Not a crabby old man. Look closer....see........ME!!

The Ego.

Please don't question "My"
For it means so much to "I"
Because of fear I dont ask "Why"
So I guess I'll stick with "My"

It was on the good ship Venus.
By Christ you should have seen us.
The captains dog was Rover.
My god they did him over.
He was so full of spoof, that he couldn't woof.
So they threw the poor bastard over.

That was really touching. Thanks for posting it.

It made me think of the Benjamin Button film. That was sad too. :(

As my girlfriend knows im a nutter, and i cant be bothered with pressies,she wrote me a poem on card as a book mark for my birthday, here goes,


I looked to the sky
and what did i see
But a one eyed martian
winking at me

He took me onboard
for a tour of the stars
to visit the moon
and my acre on mars (she bought me an acre for chrimbo)

We travelled through space
for a year and a day
He tried it on once
But i said - hey i aint gay

and so we turned back
after such a long ride
this mission was failed
he'd wanted a bride

I said mr martian
I do love you man
if you were a celeb :)
id be your biggest fan

But i aint for you
and you aint for me
so drop me off home
in time for my tea.

I howled with laughter, who says you need to spend cash to make someone happy

I want more.... what happened next? that rhythm is infectious I could listen to it for ever..... Back in the day, before writing, that was how they used to transmit knowledge and history. It just sticks in your head doesn't it?

Twisting, Turning, Listing, and Learning.
Life pushes on with the energy force.
No matter what you want or where you hide,
Your come tumbling along this great ride.
The strength and power is too hard to fight.
Even if it does not feel right, (which it does feel right)
Life can throw up so many little surprises.
I bet you can’t guess as to what mine is???

cryst4l 24-10-2009 06:05 PM

I’m sick I’m spinning.
My head is in a whirlpool with all these visions.
Things that need to be done as part of a routine,
Only make me want to shout and scream.
Tonight, a night of freedom and bliss,
Will only make my skin boil and hiss.

Not sure what to do or how to handle,
Confusion creeps in, choking the air I breathe.
Faith holds strong and I must believe.

gravey420 24-10-2009 10:34 PM

blind to the fury numb to the pain deaf to the sadness my spirit in flames rise against rise to meet rise to conquer rise to defeat

anger mistrust exacting circumstance cursing money and all the greed my spirit to fight ill feed and feed

never ending ties that bind my soul is lost on the winds of time

keeping close your devious ends
time and place will reveal a taste for vengance and a thirst for your blood

truthspoon 25-10-2009 12:42 PM

In reply to PeteCookie, please feel free to post any poems you want, whether you wrote them or not..... I would suggest that if you post a poem by someone else, that you include the poet's name underneath the poem. Just for informaton purposes.

I'm just gonna drop these lines on y'all.

Quote:


I Love thy neighbour!


How much do you love your neighbour?
When the stereo’s loud to hide their rows
do you hate them? Do you think they’re trash?
Walk a mile in their shoes that let the rain in.
Life’s quite hard with wet feet and not enough cash.

I........ Love my neighbour
I love my neighbour but she scares me!
She’s so pretty and I like to be alone
But when I see her
I reconsider
And a different life grows in my mind.
To have a girlfriend.
To have a girlfriend.


This whole world is full of neighbours.
But some of them don’t get on.
"I’m not talking to them!
Cos he broke my spade"
"And their cat poos in the rockery I made"
"And she sings on a Sunday
And it drives me mad"
"And their cooking, oh their cooking, always smells so bad."

But I love my neighbour, she’s so pretty
And when I see her
I know I want her
To be my girlfriend
To be my girlfriend

It’s high time we loved our neighbours
Cos we share more than a fence
And if we love them and they love us
The world makes sense.

I like these two short poems - i dont know who wrote or said them but they are good.

Quote:

I, a stranger and affraid, in a world i never made
^that is like how we feel when we feel seperate and not connected with the universe. A stranger in a strange land.

Quote:

An artist wants a picture painted, of such a monster that he fainted
^For me this represents our minds, when we create mountains out of molehills.

in mortal desire coil into thyself
seek redemtion in dead eyes

pursue the hidden path
climb the lost stair

visceral designs unveiled,
relinquish autonomy

integrate the lesson
disseminate your values

extrapolate probabillity
incorporate impossibility

rebel throng rise
to war to war

take the streets and parks

Rising edifice, seat of power now topple

fury burns through eyes that watch
the smoke of ruin rise over your works
the dust shall claim its own

a miscreants desire set in motion the unfolding of your doom

gravey420 26-10-2009 02:48 PM

I stood with my master
and i said to him

its not quite what you said it was
the image and the glory

the ancient lies
and modern ties

that bind the fading story

gravey420 26-10-2009 03:00 PM

the stars shine bright above my head
i can see them through the gaps of the dark green canopy
as i lie here between a distant war and a suspicious future
the wheels begin turning in my mind
before they lock in place
opening an inner door to the memory ive found...


the battle rage still holds me trembling in its grasp
as i close the eyes of anothers fallen son
a faint breeze swirls past my head diverting the familiar path of the tears i shed

an eerie harmony
high and no more than a whisper
seems to be borne on the breeze
as it carries the soul of this golden haired youth
away above and beyond my reach

"that sound holds no pain"

gravey420 26-10-2009 03:03 PM

In case you hadnt heard this is the truth of the world
your asleep to keep you from dreaming
you buy to keep you breeding
you die to keep you sleeping

stare at the sun stare at the sun stare at the sun stare at the sun
what a world of fun what a world of fun what a world of fun

DADDY WONT YOU TAKE ME TO DISNEYLAND!!!
DO IT NOW OR ILL SLIT MY SISTERS THOROAT
DONT GIVE ME THAT SHIT ABOUT THE ECONOMY
YOU WORK FOR ME SO FUCKING FEED ME
BIG MACS LARGE FRIES DONT FORGET TO SUPERSIZE
DO IT OR ILL KILL YOU IN YOUR SLEEP
SO WE ALL MAKE HEADLINE NEWS
now i gotta dance the blues

im sowing the seeds
of future deeds
for a lighter breed
for the collective dream
of heaven on earth
self guided system
to feel the power of my birth
to embrace my circumstance
the timeline dances
before my eyes
leading me forward
and backward
its all the same(its all now)
take me somewhere new
speak to me
in a new language
the twin eyes of perception and deception
stare back at me
burn them both
embrace resurrection
of the moment
of eternity
of intention
of misinterpritation
of peace love happylove love
the time of dancing draws near
but the shadows coming up the rear

like all desire bred from lacking
itll pass as an ill wind

Absorbed into space

WAITING FOR DIRECTIONS

When will I know?
I've been waiting so long
To hear it's time to go

My ears are straining
To hear the song
But it won't stop raining

And it's been so long
Longer than we know

But still, I guess
There's a reason for today.

And my life is a mess

I'm in a trap
I can't get away
I look for the map

To lead me
From empty nights
And cruel days
That besiege me

And I'm at war
With these demons
That claim me as their own

When all I really want
Is to go home

And it's been so long
Longer than we know

The cynic in me grows
As my heart begins to cramp
The love I dearly chose
Has proven to be a tramp

chrysoprase 01-11-2009 04:13 PM

Upward and forward
Into the sky
Because when I look back
I wanna cry

Wishing and praying
I go the right way
In a circle of madness
I won't stay

I remember the day
My spirit got crushed
And trampled upon
And I completely
Lost my way

And I was opened
To the wicked world
For when all hope dies
That's what happens

A call for help
In the darkness
Someone looked upon me
And pulled me back up

Now hope I will keep
In my heart so securely
And never let go
Of my dreams

For somewhere out there
Somebody cares
And sent a star
To watch over me

I'm a child.
 
I'm neither black or white
I'm neither rich nor poor
Do i have a name
I'm not really sure
Are you left or right,happy or sad
People always go
What is all this fuss about
I'm a child dont you know

I've come into this world
With an open heart and mind
To love and respect others
And treat them as i find
I need to have expriences
So i can learn and grow
For me that is essential
I'm a child dont you know

Teach me not your prejudice
Your bitterness and hate
And spare me your religous gods
So mighty and so great
Let me form my own beleifs
And I'll reep what I sow
Im not yet an adult
I'm a child dont you know

I know what I'll do
With this precious life of mine
I'm going to be the best i can
To flourish and to shine
I'll keep my head up high
When I am feeling low
I know what your thinking
I'm a child dont you know

Now I am no one special
But I'm very much unique
And this truth within ourselves
Is something we must seek
Abandoning fear is the only thing
That you yourself must do
And please remember just one thing
You were once a child too

cryst4l 03-11-2009 11:21 AM

The hurt
The pain
The thought of disdain.

Tears roll form my cheeks,
as the energy and anguish rises through my veins.

Life is never easy,
but my, she is showing me how hard.

Such treacherous acts
from people with such Love.

Deep passions boil within,
Why, what, where how can this be?

Life was never meant to be treated this way.

With all the power and energy I can muster.

I put back to you what you gave to me.

I give all I can give and hope and pray.

Here again... vision in frame, depths of a spiral just drive me insane.
End of the line, familiar wake. Duration feels short in emotional stake.
Open and run. You’ll make it, I swear. Immersed in confusion, too much to bear.
Dispersed through the tunnel, circle is laid. The price of a beam must be re-paid.

Into the capsule, fiery flame. Horizon formalities chosen again.
Urgency measured, momentum contained. Memory blurred under plateau ordained.

Into the capsule, fiery flame. Horizon formalities chosen again.
Encryption to follow once notably gained, auspicious intent from creation restrained.

I wrote this a couple of years ago, it was my first attempt at poetry for several years, it was borne out of some pretty dark emotions, as you will tell once you read it, lol. Thought I would add it to this great thread anyways. Thanks for sharing guys :)


THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON


In fear and doubt my heart dost weep
Where darkness dwells and passion sleeps

Herein this inky dead-of-night
The Dark Queen reigns with all her might

Those murky shadows wrap around
Myself, in stealth, without a sound

Cold blackness my only company
Until my mind doth set me free

Oh! hear the melancholic tune
That plays on the dark side of the moon

And here I pray, my lover's arms to heal
The lonliness and despair I feel

Amidst this god-forsaken place
As silent tears roll down my face

2013 11-11-2009 02:12 PM

Some very good work here people . I have spoken to a lot of friends lately who all seem to be writing poetry recently , some creative force in the air .
I wrote this one the other day after reading another thread that had degenrated into dispute .

There just ideas to bounce around
some absurd and some profound
Were would we be without questions
asking leads to new suggestions .
While were exchganging our ideas
they provoke some anger and others fears
although this is not the intention
necessity's the mother of invention .
Sometimes its good to just debate
and keep our cool not foster hate
the time it is almost too late
so hopefully we can all relate
and consider all we meet a mate .
If some consider this lovey dovey stuff
dont get stressed or in a huff
What is it we are striving for
a world of peace make love not war
though we seem to be living 1984
lets not argue any more
good feelings dont do no harm
we dont want a repeat of animal farm
were we become what we all hate
so join the forums mass debate!
At least we have the internet to thank
for all this intellectual wank .
:D

The Listener
 
Talk to the man who's listening
Instead of shouting at one who's not
For the listener remembers somethimg
Something the others have forgot
He knows he knows nothing
In all there is to know
And when your words ring true to him
His attention he will show

The others know it all
There is nothing you can say
To help them change their lives
In a truely empowering way
They have all they want
They have all they need
Materialistic trophies
And an ego fueled by greed

Concerve all your energy
And hold the listener dear
Instead of wasting time
On a soul that cannot hear
One day they will realise
As they look at what they've got
Where is all the happiness
This lot should have brought
Thats when he'll start listening
Instead of being a man who's not

chrysoprase 20-11-2009 06:24 PM

The Lobby

Misery
Is all I get
And as far
As I can see
I'll never be
Happy

Misery
Is my path in life
the ocean tide
Swallows me

And carries me
Out to the sea
Of endless gloom
Despair and doom

I'm sitting in
the waiting room
Of misery.

***
Weather Veins

Rainclouds
Choke my throat
Trying to escape

Angry tremors
Shake my body
Causing it to quake

Then little lakes
Fill my eyes
and irrigate my face

***

the visions bring me back
To wandering hills
Of Emerald Green
Pyramids
Back in the memory
Labyrinth
Warm watersac
Embryo of time

Disapearing into
Dimension unknown
To forefront minds
Cannot remember

But try, try so hard.

The Rebel
 
They who scream;
Shall find their dreams;
And shout no more, no more, no more.

The time has come for the rebel divine;
It has come the time for us to shine.

No more dim lights and closet doors for the rebel to hide its talent;
We must speak out and scream and shout, to what does this amount?

No more, no more, no more, no more;
We can surely take no more.

But for circumstance we cannot be heard with a more than powerful word;
To long held back from the norms of the world;
Surely this should be considered absurd.

With fire and storm I come to you as you must hear my honest plight;
The wages of war are just too unfair, I fear we may have to take flight.

Spongeblip :D
