اهنأ بخير قرينه - Poem by جب
by جبران خليل جبران

إِهْنَأْ بخَيْر قَرينَةٍ
يَا زَيْنَ فِتْيَانِ الْبَلَدْ
وَتَلقَها فِي نِعْمَةٍ
نُعْماً يَجِيءٌ بِلا عَدَدْ
أَضْحَتَ كليرُ حَليلَةً
لَكَ فَارْعَهَا رَعْيَ الْرَشَدْ
في أُنْسها مَا يُجْلبُ
الْسَ رَّاءَ أَوْ يَنْفي الْكَمَدْ
وَلَهَا إِذَا الْتَبَسَتْ وُجُوهُ
الْرَأْي رَأْيٌ يُسْتَحَدْ

Advice To A Grass-Blade
by Maxwell Bodenheim

Thin and dark green symbol
Of an earth forever raising
Myriads of chained wings,
Breezes have a form, to you,
And sounds break into vivid shape.
The proud finality of tiny sight
Cannot lure your pliant blindness.

Thin and dark green blade,
Be not awed by trees and men

Too Much Advice, Leave Me Alone
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

I’m stressed out
by my narcissistic mother...
I’m stressed out
by my clueless dad...
I’m stressed out
by my bratty children...
They’re all driving me
frickin’ mad...

They all tell me

Love the Life
by Somali Mukherjee

No more will I make life freeze;
I will enjoy my life up to its lowest lees.
Life is short; it is precious;
Life can't stand with things malicious.
Why shouldn't I, why shouldn't I?
Soar with wings up in the sky?
Aye, I do love to dream;
Like the stars, I don't gleam,
But I will shine, shine, for sure;
The more will I shine, the more endure.

An ode to your frozen face
by Julie G

I am moved by your frozen face.
A testament to endless chase, controlling time with needless haste.
But past the mask, your honest life does not deserve to face a knife.
Injections for sale, a culture’s embrace,
A lifetime of living you plan to erase. Our culture's obsessed with endless praise
And authenticity's lost in the haze.
As you chase perfection, an image remade
Do not allow your true self to fade.
In seasons to come, may you welcome a thaw,
for true beauty lies in every flaw.

Bumpy Road
by Percules The Poet

•••
Mind so bright it's bling blanging and blinding so close your eyes.
You're not invincible everything eventually dies.
Even when it's dark you find a way to shine.
Nothing hurts forever but some things take time.
I did not make the rules so don't ask me why.
Don't believe anybody's story there is always 3 sides.
How you feel, how they feel, and what's right.
Stop wasting your breath telling me your lies.
I only believe what is seen with these 2 eyes.

Another Letter to Henry
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Before too long, you’re going to become friends with a special person... you’re going to glance over to her in class, just at the exact same time she’s glancing at you... you’ll share a smile together and your world will become magical... she’s going to make you feel so good about yourself that you won’t even want to share your feelings with your guy friends, because they just won’t understand... you’re going to ask if you can carry her books from class to class, and she’s going to say yes... you’re going to put notes in each other’s lockers and discuss movies and music... you’re going to feel like you’ve quite possibly met your future wife, even though you just started liking her, and you’re only twelve years old... the end of the school year is only weeks away and you both start sharing your summer sleep away camp details when she pops the big question... do you want to meet me behind the gym after school today?
Before you even respond, you decide to ask a couple of your best buddies for advice... you’ve known them your entire life, well, since first grade, but you know you can trust them with your secret... you would appreciate their advice, as well as their confidentiality... one of the boys advises against meeting her because she might want to kiss you... the other boy encourages you to meet with her because he claims he has already kissed another girl in your class, and it was awesome... you make them both swear never to divulge your secret, and they both give you their word... when you arrive at the appointed time and place, and you await your fair maiden’s arrival, you suddenly realize the entire class has shown up to witness your momentous but private event... you suddenly begin to understand the gravity of the situation when one, two and then three minutes quickly pass by, and your maiden is nowhere to be seen... it’s at that point when the soft snickering eventually begins to sound like the spontaneous roaring of laughter... all eyes are on you, and you suddenly realize you are standing there, alone...

It’s important to understand the emotion of embarrassment… it’s a very strong emotion that is a part of every normal human being... when you feel betrayed by your buddies or your first crush, and you feel deeply wounded emotionally, understand that this is a temporary feeling and that you should allow yourself to feel that pain... the next step is to except that temporary feeling, understanding that this too shall pass... eventually... one slow hour at a time...
