Woodnotes Poem | Christina Strigas


Last night I fell asleep

before you came home.

I dragged the dog out for a walk

but he hates the cold as much as I do.

He pissed all over the kitchen floor,

he despises being alone.

He ate snacks before bedtime

wallowing in loneliness.

You wanted to have sex

while I had creative writing on my mind.

My blue journal sprawled between

my thighs,

I want my head there, you said.

My pens took precedence

Patience was playing from my phone

I ignored you. I fought your lights.

You take it personal, but I’m a writer

and you know that I can’t interrupt

my flow. Sex came and went,

making love is for another lifetime.

I took the kids out for dinner

ate avocado rolls

veggie burgers

St.Louisbourg burger

with onion rings.

I said, it’s hard to be an artist

to be in a relationship,

I am preparing them

for the heartache, but it’s

Too late.

If the one you’re with

does not understand what a woodnote is

or what defines you.

It’s a natural musical tone

or the song of

some bird

no one cares about trees

nature is becoming extinct.

The young and old have their heads

filled with useless information

school shootings

young wolves writing poems

academia taking the back seat

poets knocking on your door

I am locked in;

dead children

another statistic.

Here we are sleeping together

never at the same time

chaos in our fear.

Conversant Faith Poem


via Daily Prompt: Conversant

By now, I would say i’m an expert on love

I’ve had it, lost it and all of the above

You place your faith and trust, in someone else

Often putting them, before yourself

But, they don’t always do the same

We know this dance, and still we play the game

Black And Red Poem | Evi Koroni


Black And Red

Planet is screaming for a change.
Murders, Pain, Hate
Black and Red
such wonderful colors; love them.

Murders, Pain, Hate
The murder is pleasures
Money is your happy
Money wants more money
and more money needs
more blood.
Yeah, blood baby…
Devil, is in the Earth
call us to offer him blood.
Killers everywhere are smiling to you.

Where are you, peace?
Where are you, people?
Where are you, love?

Planet is screaming for change.
Murders, Pain, Hate
Black and red everywhere
Mothers screaming
Kids crying
Fathers, brothers keep the guns
Black souls
Red bloods
lovers of well thought out visuals.

Where are you, peace?
Where are you, people?
Where are you, love?

My Path Poem | Josephat A Wangwe



I’m following though it’s full of mud,
spotting stepping stones before each move,
might there be no stepping stones,
trust me, like a mad man, I’ll swim in,
surely it will take me to the peak of my view,
sharp thorns besides,
but none can out-track my vigour,
my path,
my path,
it’s my path that I’m following.

Scary darkness ahead,
but my little candle shall take me through,
I’m breaking out of my jail,
those chains can no longer hold my walking sticks,
watch me unveiling those hidden adventures,
watch closely,
learn to tell tales since my tale you shall tell.

From the bondage of procrastination,
from the ties of the nots,
from the valley of shyness,
from the tomb of can’ts,
away from the valley of shame,
I fly, I fly, I fly,
flying to the top of the cans’ tower,
diving across the pond of quitters,
see my head on the head side of the coin.

Hey you,
wishing to join in!!?,
come in,
let’s venture in this desert together,
if not,
then step out of my way,
your cold thoughts should not be my obstacles,
I want to explore beyond the blue,
surprises are what more of what I’m expecting,
let snakes bite and vultures’ craws on me,
never shall I die nor perish,
those will turn to scars and marks,
they will be shinning when I’m at the end of the my path.

Lots of things  are subject to change, but not you

You’re the one thing in my life, that is constant and true

It may be tested, through our many trials

Faith is the fuel to this journey, for thousands of miles

Sustained this far, throughout my life

I’m convinced, I’ve been doing something right

No Compromise Love Poem | Poetry Inspired


via Daily Prompt: Compromise

There is no love,  without compromise

In a perfect world, but not this life

Going into the marriage, you knew the terms of the deal

Now everyday you make sacrifices, or that’s how you feel

And I really felt,  we had an understanding

I told you don’t listen, to your friends and family

Those distant whisper in your ear,  have you slipping away in fear

Each day I wake up, reminded life is a gift

So I am grateful, for each and every day that I live

Being present in mind, body, spirit and soul

There’s no time like now, don’t wait until your old

Don’t live in the past, or worry about the future

Unprogram these traits,  from your cerebral computer

Existing,  only in the state of now

That’s really what this life,  is all about

No time for false steps, or a sugar coated truth

Lately, I’ve been suspicious of your intentions

Don’t forget that one thing, you don’t want me to mention

All this back and forth, is exasperating

Look at those big eyes, like i’m exaggerating

Only want you, to be the one I trust

Just tell me you’ll try, and never give up

Void of trust, from encounters of your past

I just want your conviction, is that to much to ask

With memories, that steal your faith in others

Can you conjure up your trust, if it can be discovered

I know that sometimes, we have to padlock our heart

For you, I’ll be the light you need in the dark

Sometimes we feel buried in problems, we all deserve a vacation

Head to the pristine beaches of Jamaica, for retuning our vibrations

Look no further for partying, than the Jamaican dance hall

Sit out on the water, relaxing in the breeze

Sipping margaritas, will put your mind at ease

Doubt there will be an inkling, of their computerized takeover

I’m just saying if it happens, it won’t be of our own conception

Constantly underestimate them, will we ever learn our lesson

I live an inscrutable life, impossible to understand

Won’t conform to rules, I drift with without ever making plans

I’ve set my spirit free, to move about the land

Can’t stand still for long, afraid of sinking in the sand

I don’t like playing by the rules, I’m living life out on the edge

Not walking cautiously through life,  that’s to narrow of a bridge

I’ve tried that once before, seeking a place where I belong

Now I dream up incomprehensible ideas, and then put them in a poem

Depression A Deadly Disease| Tim Fox


A very beautiful poem on depression, that takes us inside the mind of a suicidal person. This is a very serious topic, that needs more attention. If you suffer from depression, or know someone who is suffering. Listen to this spoken word poem and share it with others. Times may be tough or you may be going through something, there is a support system, and network of people out there to who care for you deeply. The writer of this poem (Tim Fox) chose the perfect tone and uses great analogies to paint the picture of how people are affected by depression, but there is hope out there.

Are Vaccines Safe Poem


It’s widely believed that the influx in autism diagnosis, is linked to forced vaccination

I’m not trying discredit this industry, this is purely for public education

Numbers indicate, that Autism rates are now  1 in 68, up 30% in the last two years

You would think doctors would caution users of the risk, but instead, kick vaccines in higher gear

In a industry barely regulated, by FDA and CDC, you get leaders committing criminal acts

Who instead act on personal interest, protecting industry policy, and covering up facts

Protect your children, friends, community, don’t support the medical complex, do your research

Excise your free will, a constitutional right, that was god given at birth
