If Not Tomorrow

What is to come
if not tomorrow,
when all is left is
no time to borrow

Moments remain still
nothing else matters,
seconds stop ticking
and yesterday shatters

Was today really lived
even any memory made,
as mundane and routine
overshadow and fade

Death only comes
when we never live,
dwelling on pain
all becoming negative

Throwing away hours
and wasting a minute,
the time of your life
is surely not infinite

Live relentlessly until
the last breath is taken,
dream on and on again
until illusion is shaken

Be left with memories
not regret or sorrow,
in time for today
if not tomorrow.

The Color Missing

The Color Missing
Red, black, and blue are the colors of our work pens. Red is the color of the blood we spill on other people’s mistakes.  Blue is the color of the songs we sing on tax forms or pay stubs- every page has a secret melody. Black is the color of the streets we fear most. Black is the color of our signature of approval. Black is the color of our death.

‘But what about the Green pens?’ I ask. They say ‘the ink is too hard to see.’

Not another day

Impulsive or compulsive

Either way it's not conducive

Living with this disorder

Can't be good for my liver

Obsessions, when do they stop?

Compulsions, when do I stop?

Let me illustrate and reiterate

My demons make me infuriated

To the point, man, I really want to escape this

Live everyday like your last?

These hours go by fast

Trying to obliterate every ounce of the past

Always with the imagery and self coping insanity

That broke me and continues to break me.

Another day, no not another day

I just got out, please let me stay away.

If Today Was Your Last

Author Dana Redricks 
May 5, 2019 

If today was your last day
what would you do 
Would you get your house 
in order and say goodbye 
to those you love 
Would you remember 
you to get ready for 
where you would spend 
God has made a way we
could be secure 
Most people have life
insurance but it
won't secure our souls 
Death doesn't discriminate 
it takes young and old
So if today was your last 
where would you go
Life is short we must be 
prepared to meet our 
maker when our time 
on earth is done

No Sweet Thing Today

I’ve given it little thought,
but I suppose it will follow me,
and today it has.
Today it followed me,
maybe as I left home 
and ventured to the bitter desk
in my bitter office.
It followed with no sweet treats,
but with vinegar, perhaps,
or battery acid,
inappropriately bottled 
with vanilla milk.
My coffee camouflaged the despair
for a moment,
but fine coffee and vanilla milk
do not follow as bitterness does.
And I know it’s no good
crying over spilled milk,
or vanilla milk ruined by vinegar
or battery acid,
but it might stay with me today.

my wish today

"my wish today"
around me now is a hole of empty walls and empty halls I can not comprehend knowing you are not around the bend with so many words glances and touches left to share the one less whisper embrace or smile I can not bare although you are not here for me to hold through the cold my wish today is for you to somehow see what you mean to me with unfinished moments to express I now have yesterday to caress

happy holidays to one and all may this day find you well

I died again today! Now, I display
The heart that was broken by my dismay.
In between the moments, in which I cried,
All I could do was try, therefore I tried
"Be Like Christ," but how can I talk the talk
With no hot water, upon which to walk.
I guess vengeance is a dish best served cold,
But these tribulations are getting old.
But, bold displays of penance must be seen,
So, sorry for looking at her tight jeans.
This witness, whose testimony you loathe,
Used dish washing liquid to clean his clothes,
And, yes, I had to suffer in my youth,
So I could expose the world to my truth.

My Uncle Died Today

My uncle died today
I don't know what to say
He was my fave.

Full of vim and vigor
Didn't need gun and a trigger
To have his say.

Slightly misogynist
But ain't the best of us
Flawed in some way?

I'll miss Abbott.
Has been my habit
To love him every single day.

No one suffered or was killed today

No one suffered or was killed today
No one raped or burned alive
No terrorists
No politicians
No exploitation 
No pollution
No religion
No rich and 
no poor

there is something 
nice and peaceful
about having 
No people  
living on my PLANET
all being 
with their baggage 
full of delusions

Today we Mourn, Tomorrow we Live

Graveside so quiet
Tear laden relatives mourn
Today, heavy hearts 
Tomorrow, spirits will lift
Whilst the living remember

while you are here

while you are here 
play hard 
my dear
for after here 
there are no games 
to steer
only peace and quiet 
no death or fear
to fear
my dear

My Sins

My Sins – Zamreen Zarook

Oh God you are so gracious,
Am a guy who have done since in capacious,
At times I have being as a carnivorous,
But it charged ages to identify as dangerous.

Since are being committed behind the screen,
Even it started at my thirteen,
Mirrors used to say that I am evergreen,
Whereas my since were always unseen.

In enormous number I have executed,
But for every count, high privacy was aborted,
Simply because of your blessings we are bracketed,
If not, we are already being quoted.

Oh God, I understood your kindness,
Here after I won’t commit since in others absence,
However much chances I get to access,
I will always have heaven as my address.

The Modern Age, Oh So Strange

 Ice in the Moon, Water on Mars, What's Next?


 Come on Over it's Been a Long Time!

Text tone

 Wanna Go to the Park?

No sound

 Who Gives Hugs Anymore


 You Always Wanted a Big House

Each room
A tomb

 Flowers For Little Ole Me?

My box
Loves phlox

 Will the Real Ghost Please Stand Up

I'm Going Home Today

My time has come, I'm
going home, today
The Lord has beckoned,
so I can not stay
known, I must go astray
With No questions asked,
because it be's that way
Since My destiny had been
set, I had No say
Now, a visit to the heavenly
kingdom, I must Eternally pay
Although, I hope My folks back
home, will be okay
For, "parting is such sweet sorrow",
to quote Romeo, if I may

Died Again Today

When everything seems to go wrong
And nothing goes right
And you no longer have the will to fight the fight
You look around you
But all you see is grey
And so much sadness fills your day
You search for gold
But all you find is dust
you yearn for love
But make do with lust
Dreams remain out of reach
Sleep my only allie my release
I hide myself in the shadows 
Where the Ravens dwell
A place I'm familiar with called hell
What happened where did I go wrong
Been on my own far too long.

Coffee Break - Seize The Day

            Coffee Break  (Seize the day)

In every tick of every clock
There is a trick that follows with a tock
Tick- tock, tick- tock, swing on lost pendulums
To stop, to seize the day, remember to 
Live every day to follow death
Die every day to follow life
If you cry each day
If you laugh each day
You have lived a life worth living
Seize the day if just to drink your coffee
As life is sometimes hard to swallow in the coffin

Created on 10/21/14 for - Seize the day (Carpe diem) -  Poetry Contest

tomorow is my funeral, today is my party

my goodbyes will go to the ones i love 
the ones who love back only to think of
as friends and lovers party like no other
hug all even my hated sister and brother
laugh till i cry love until the final goodbye
give away everything to the poor
only them are the ones to deserve more
here i go on my own my last day was fun
but seems i have finally become undone
tomorow is my funeral today is my party
tomorow seems to be here cannot be tardy

Burying the Hatchet

Of all the things I do resent,
Time takes most precedence;
For He's a Thief- the giver of Grief,
And a Lover of the Present...

Today he plots to plague my thoughts,
And wrought His plans for Pain!
Ideals are fraught, my Mind hath caught-
His buried hatchet in my Brain

Little Haley Died Today

Haley gave up the ghost today,
all we could do was cry and pray.
She'd suffered so long, her whole life,
disease had wracked her body with strife.

Cystic Fibrosis did her in,
choked her lungs and kept her thin,
poor little child, we knew her well,
spending so much time in hospital hell.

She barely made twenty-one,
and now her short life's said and done.
We cried for her mother, in such grief,
but to Haley, by God, death was a relief.

Science and Engineering have benefitted immensely from PHYSICS
Another major concept that has hastened aeronautics is KINETICS
But science is itself a noble profession with its values and ETHICS
Scientists are neither known for oratory prowess nor PHONETICS
Yet they have produced drugs that are as effective as ANESTHETICS
All these and many more were attained with or without AESTHETICS

'KASA' - Life and Death 1

Live your Good Life, knowing GOD is Good always unto death 
What are we here for? to Die, so get Ready
Am not afraid of Death but Life scares me
A Breath tells it all, 'IN' and 'OUT' so is Life 
Life is today this second, next second and day we know nothing of 
So blindly we live today but sets sight on tomorrow's future
Freedom unappreciated Jails
Cynics of Life have a lonely grave to be content with
The laughter Death brings to our faces, is that of lost Vanity
Abounding Sin makes inconsistent participation look Sinful
True Darkness of this world sleeps not in the Shadows of the Night 
but lies within the Heart of Man

Death of Today

A movement of air
In the night
Barely perceptible 
To the sight

A whisper of air
The days' final breath
For the clock is ticking
The days' coming death

Last minutes fade
Till the day is history
Its death soon to come
Nevermore shall this day be
