My Husband, My Best Friend
by Bonnie Dues

You're everything I wanted and hoped you would be
You're the very best thing that's ever happened to me
Because of you I know who I am
I know where I'm going
I sure it was meant for me to love you
and just as sure it was meant for you too
My greatest wish is always be together
To find each other all over again
and know this is forever
So thank you for choosing me to share you're life

by Ben Scott

Dark hair 
deep eyes. 
Like a well I fell into once...

The night sky clear
not a single cloud. 
The world lit 
just by the moonlight .

Lightning came.

The Bridegroom
by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I SLEPT,--'twas midnight,--in my bosom woke,

As though 'twere day, my love-o'erflowing heart;
To me it seemed like night, when day first broke;

What is't to me, whate'er it may impart?

She was away; the world's unceasing strife

For her alone I suffer'd through the heat

by Wilfred Owen

He sat in a wheeled chair, waiting for dark,
And shivered in his ghastly suit of grey,
Legless, sewn short at elbow. Through the park
Voices of boys rang saddening like a hymn,
Voices of play and pleasure after day,
Till gathering sleep had mothered them from him.

About this time Town used to swing so gay
When glow-lamps budded in the light blue trees,
And girls glanced lovelier as the air grew dim,-

Mother Earth
by Henry Van Dyke

Mother of all the high-strung poets and singers departed,
Mother of all the grass that weaves over their graves the glory of the field,
Mother of all the manifold forms of life, deep-bosomed, patient, impassive,
Silent brooder and nurse of lyrical joys and sorrows!
Out of thee, yea, surely out of the fertile depth below thy breast,
Issued in some strange way, thou lying motionless, voiceless,
All these songs of nature, rhythmical, passionate, yearning,
Coming in music from earth, but not unto earth returning.

Dust are the blood-red hearts that beat in time to these measures,

Don’t cut a cake! Awake! Your Birthday is Fake!
by airatmaninravi AiR

Do you cut your birthday cake?
Do you know your birthday is fake?
Don't continue to make the mistake
It's time for you to now awake!

Ask your mother when you were born
You were kicking weeks before and this went on and on
You were alive long back, she knows
And even science has pictures as the embryo grows

Night sky
by J L

It has been said that we are just the universe experiencing itself.

If this is true, then to gaze at the night sky is to look back at our own past.

Strewn outward from the infinite cauldrons we call stars, this spectacle of light and vibration has spent eons in transit to get to us.

During this journey, all that we have ever known on earth has come and gone. Every pain ever felt. Every single human breath. Every word ever spoken. Every beginning and every end.

Like a child in the arms of our mother, we gaze upon from which we came.

Stop it Stupid
by airatmaninravi AiR

I was so stupid, I was a fool
But they didn't teach me this in school
'Stop it, stupid!' had I told myself
My stupidity would have ended with this tool

We all get angry, we all do fear
We are idiots, year after year
How can we stop this misery and pain
How to stop being foolish, again and again

Today the world is grey. Every cloud, every window, every room. The same dull melancholy tones.

On days like today, its hard not to feel grey too.

Life's Reality Quote
by Joseph Ogbonna

Poverty may not necessarily
laziness connote,
and riches may not
necessarily hard work
The hand of providence
does its major role play,
as successes and failures
to each man is assigned.
Work resiliently before
