BLACKBIRD

My father was a musician, with a beautiful tenor voice. As we seven siblings witnessed his coffin being lowered into that cold earth, a blackbird sang his heart out on the church steeple.

his pure spirit rose
    on the softest summer breeze
          blackbird into thee

If Only For A Little While

Your children only hold your hand For a little while Before they push you away But there’ll come a day When they’ll likely say “Hold my hand, don’t go away” Hold my hand a little longer “Please stay!” “please stay!” …”Please stay”…

Sympathy by Briton Riviere

The little girl sat alone on the step Thinking of what she had said and done Sad and alone, she needed a friend Gladly there appeared just the one A cold nose and a friendly lick Her dog snuggled up without question As always he needed no explanations There with the greatest of canine affection
Inspired by his 1878 picture- Sympathy go to Allposters.com/

A Prayer for my Angel

The sky is not the same.
When I don't see her eyes and her smile it starts to rain.

Please God tell me your Angel is okay.
I don't know what to do if she goes astray. 

Please guide your Angel back to me.
I miss the sweet words of her melody.

Show me she has not departed from us,
and will promise not to fuss.

Give me a sign or a hint of her existence.
Let me know that she is in no need for assistance.

If you do I shall promise never again to be distant.

HUMANITY'S SHAME







Starving children die

Peacefully the greedy sleep 

Humanity's shame!*







© Demetrios Trifiatis
         10 July 2018


* According to UNICEF more than 15.000 children die each day because of starvation!
If only humanity showed the same compassion as in the case of the trapped in the cave of Thailand children, we certainly would have a much better world.

december day

December day

There are no words that we can say,
About the tragedy that happened on that December day.
When an elementary school came under attack
And all those little lives will never come back.

Our hearts cry out and eyes fill with tears,
For the parents who now have to face their worst fears.
Their child is gone taken away
On that tragic December day.

Innocent children from age’s five to ten,
What could they have possibly done to meet such a tragic end.
And to the teachers whose lives were also lost,
You protected the children and paid the ultimate cost.

What's Happening To Our Children?

Look into their hollowed eyes
and tell me you don't care.
There are so many hurting
and it's more than I can bear.

What happens to our young
that makes them crave the pain? 
How could they feel so helpless
that it drives them near insane? 

So many young are cutters.
They have a thirst for tears.
Where are all their parents
while they're out facing their fears? 

How can we save these children? 
It kills me when I know
that underneath they're dying
yet the scars they don't let show.

If I could give them strength
and help them see the way...
I'd trade them my tomorrows
if that gained them one more day.

The beginning and the end


                       Born
                   First steps
                   Growing up
               Marriage and kids
                         Life

                        Years 
                      Roll by
                  Grandchildren
               Great grandchildren  
                        Death.

The Children of the Sun

The lights are out tonight,
But our struggles still ignite
The hay of hope, like hearth
Amidst the cold and dark.

To the temples in the sky,
For Heaven-on-Earth we cry.
We're our own Kingdom Come,
For we're the Children of the Sun.

The sinners passing by
Might greet us with goodbye.
Is it their guns against us might?
They wouldn't stand against our light.

Come Hell or Highwater,
With our sons and our daughters
We'll stand together as one,
For we're the Children of the Sun.

to my children

When the clock tops ticking
When the pump stops heaving,
When I go to my last sleep,
When no wind comes from the heap,

Don’t you feel sad,
Don’t you feel mad,
But rather be glad,
For nothing is bad.

From where I will be,
Though you can’t see,
I’ll be with you,
Helping you through.

So think of me always,
As bathing in sunrays,
Happy in my new ways,
Smiling  to you through a haze.

I’ll be with you still,
Not in flesh but in will,
Speaking to you, it will seem,
While you sleep and dream.

So close your eyes and pray,
You’re almost there already,
I’ll be thinking of you,
Patiently awaiting you.

Children of the Day

Children of the day
You walk on roads untold
Dangers lurking nearer
To grab you and take hold

You hide behind your light
And pray we wont come near
You walk in day with pride
But in the night you fear

You walk on edge of shadows
And hope we will not come
We see you walking there
And think you are quite dumb

We take you and disapear
Forever in our world
But we will join the light
Our darkness then unfurled

Children of the night
Our day will surly come
Our night with clash with day
The night we now come from

i am a black child

i am a black child
who always stand strong
who's been through thick and thin 
sometimes right,sometimes wrong
but no matter what  i continue strong

Hugs

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Losing a game

When you lose a big, important game,
you feel like the world has turned on you,
like it is your fault,
you feel down,
and wonder why this had to happen,
were you ready?

Instead of thinking about what you did wrong,
and focusing on that it was your fault,
think about what YOU could do better,
how things could have turned around
And maybe, just maybe those things will come true.

This is me

My knees were the things that 
kept me up and my skin is my 
cutting board my eyes are the

the fire place that keeps me 
burning so calm

Qualities of Health Engendering Women

They see strengths
Not the limitations
These are people who will make you proud of yourself
They will tell you why you’re special
Trust you to the point you have to answer their expectations
They make you better than you normally are
You can be proud of yourself
They respect you 
For what you’ve done
Where you’ve come from
They see what you’ve experienced something real
Respect you for your courage
They live by their rules
They do not expect you to follow theirs
They are at peace to themselves
They are not proving anything to you
They are good listeners
Sincere in their interest in you
You feel important
They are available for honest
Genuine discussion
Makes you want to share yourself

TEARS OF JOY









			   Tears of Joy

			God cried today; His tears fertilized 
			     Mother Earth’s womb; 
		         The fragrance of nature saturated the air.

			Tomorrow I will cry upon your grave
			     Laughing tears  
			Falling from pregnant memories:
                             Pregnant memories

			Washing away grief’s gloom
                             Watering love
			And the happiness of peace we shared.

The Future Starts Here

The innocence is transfusing
and overturning 
the goat skin drums
children of the mills,
children of the junkyard,
alone, 
and savaging
and we keep filling them with
mercury, nitrate, espestice, baby bombs
blasted out of their shaved heads
scared,
and foraging

- Grief Is Tremendous -

 



The sunshine of your laughter and raindrops of small tears
Your steps so soft and light
Your blond curls and smiling eyes

We didn’t want to let you go
A mother and father's love for a child
The time has come the moment to say goodbye

Living without you we are slowly dying inside
Like a leaf blown away by the wind
Keep your smile on your face until we meet again little angel

street children

On this cold winter’s night
Only poor  street children are in sight
No blankets, no shoes
How on earth will they make it through
Besides their cold faces,
Wet legs and muddy traces.
They stand here all alone
With no umbrella   nor   a phone.
It’s   such a sad sight
To be out, on this cold night,
You should be in bed all nice and tight
Not wet and cold, with no one to hold.
You are preciuos, were u ever told?
Someone should know
Just where do they go?
For , it is a sin!
For these poor  street  children.
To be in plain sight
On this cold, wet winters night.

Forever Changed

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where a few minutes from home
When we got the call from our baby sister

Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it back in time

Our Family & Friends were weeping 
By the time we got to his side
We knew then our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters laid down beside him
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed that day

Jesus

Judas betrayed Jesus’s whereabouts
End, was near
Son of God, knew this
Universe of the Son of the Divine Father, restored
Sins of man forgiven, Prince of our Universal domain, alive in the hearts of his children

CRY THE BELOVED CONTENENT


     CRY THE BELOVED CONTINENT…
     (Apropos The Ripping Veil of Pan-Africanism)

In all her blackness
her soils run red
with the blood of her children

Whose bloated bellies
mock the pregnancy
of liberty

And her breasts
sag in union
with faces 
of hopeless hopefulness;

While hollowed eyes 
of mourners
gaze into the wholeness
of nothing---

Smiling death stalks
the narrowing corridors of
life---echoing souring laughs
to virgin wombs
screaming from the shadows
of the valley of death:

But believe brethren---
mock not the gods---
keep plodding;
for in the theism 
of this imposed dystopia, 
a wretched mother
tenaciously clings to time
and history.
