The Grim ReaperThe Grim Reaper2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
He waits for me patiently
With wide open arms
Ready to take me to my grave
To my long-awaited death
He becomes my father
My protecter on Earth
Soon he will carry me away
To a place beyond heaven and hell
He comforts me in the night
Hands me the razor on my darkest days
Ready to hear my sad tales
And coax me to fall to death
He tells me of a world
Filled with isolation and pain
A world that would feel like home
Soon I will be ready to leave
He catches the tear drops
As if each one were precious
He begs me to look in the mirror
As I run the razor across my skin
Each mark tells a story
Of which he plays a main part
My dear, sweet Grim Reaper
Will send me to a place of hurt and torture
For which I happily think of
As I slide the cool metal deep into my skin
And watch the ruby droplets slither down my arm
While the Grim Reaper joyfully looks on
Proud of his new victim
Who's a Muslim and who's notThe Amman MessageWho's a Muslim and who's not11 months ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
The Amman Message started as a detailed statement released the eve of the 27th of Ramadan 1425 AH /
9th November 2004 CE by King Abdullah II (of Jordan) in Amman, Jordan. It sought to declare what Islam is and what it is not, and what actions represent it and what actions do not. Its goal was to clarify to the modern world the true nature of Islam and the nature of true Islam.
In order to give this statement more religious authority, king Abdullah II then sent the following three questions to 24 of the most senior religious scholars from all around the world representing all the branches and schools of Islam:
(1) Who is a Muslim?
(2) Is it permissible to declare someone an apostate (takfir)?
(3) Who has the right to undertake issuing fatwas (legal rulings)?
Based on the fatwas provided by these great scholars (who included the Shaykh Al-Azhar; Ayatollah Sistani and Sheikh Qaradawi), in July 2005 CE, King Abdullah II convened an international Is

In the name of Allah, most gracious and most merciful
(with the blessings of Allah): Islam is the religion of Peace and security. In its eyes, on any part over the surface of the earth spreading mischief, rioting, breach of peace, bloodshed, killing of innocent persons and plundering are the most inhuman crimes. In several places in the Holy Quran strict prohibition has been prescribed against breach of peace “Do not mischief on the Earth after it has been set in order” (Surah Aaraf, V. 56) and in another place condemning the mischief mongers it has been said “When he turns he back, his aim every where is to spread mischief through the earth and destroy crops and progeny but Allah loveth not mischief” (Surah AlBaqarah V. 205) in another place Quran says “And do no evil nor mischief on the (face of

Once in days long since passed, in a kingdom suffering from nightmares and chaos; a Black Knight took to the field of battle. Hed cut a swath of destruction across many fiefdoms championing his forces to victory after victory. All who gazed upon him trembled in fear for his visage was like that of a feral wolf. During one particularly brutal campaign he had decimated his opponents so completely that it could only be described as complete annihilation. He gazed about the battlefield taking stock in this bloody triumph when he was suddenly shocked to discover that a single Paladin still held the breath of life. This gleaming Soldier, battered yet undefeated, strode boldly past the enemy forces. They encircled him like a pack of viscous wolves amazed at his audacity to bother standing let alone to ignore their very presence.

"No," Sakura sighed, pushing gently at his chest, trying unsuccessfully to free herself discreetly from his arms, trapping her against the wall.
"One kiss, that's all I ask. And if I don't blow your mind with that one kiss, I'll leave you alone," Sasuke pleaded, his intoxicated state making him beg, for if he was in a clear-minded and alcoholic-free state, Sasuke would never beg, Sakura knew. The irony that Sasuke wanted her now, now that she was no longer in love with him or even slightly interested in him, did not miss Sakura's notice. She sighed in defeat, just wanting him to stop pestering her already.
"Fine," she grumbled. "Go ahead and kiss me, get it out of your system. Not like it'll change my mind," she murmured, the latter part of her response so low that he didn't hear it. She looked at Sasuke, waiting for him to kiss her already. He continued to stare blankly at her. "Well? Are you gonna kiss me or-"

Please try to calm your mind and forget about tomorrow

Please don't cry anymore, I will help you with the troublesome morrow
Even if the bad seem to be everywhere you go
Just keep in mind that you have to stay away from what’s below
And I know that you’ll learn from these bad experiences
So then you can help those who are inexperienced
Please don’t be sad, everyone has a reason for his or her existence

I'm afraid of your judgments.
I'm afraid of what you will think of me.
So I make subtle adjustments
And become someone you want me to be.
I hide behind my mascara and concealer.
Smile and respond when instructed.
I'm not smart or sexy enough to be a leader.
So I allow myself to become conducted.
I allow myself to become obstructed.
I allow myself to become abducted.
I allow myself to become corrupted.
I allow myself to become artificial.
I allow myself to become superficial.
I allow myself to become egotistical
And live behind a carefully applied screen.
Because my real face can never be seen.
It's easier to act like everyone else
Share the same values and tastes.
Believe the illusion and forget yourself.
Because the bare truth is to spiteful to face.
If you dare to stand out,
Expect no helping hand outs.
You have to completely give in,
If you want to be a part of the world that we live in.
After all, everybody just wants to be able to fit in.

It’s never easy doing art, you must protect it at all costs. But when someone steals your art, it would be far too late. You art child would be tortured, poorly changed and yet still recognizable, and even forced to be looked at by many people, just because someone wanted to be popular or make a profit.
Your art child would be crying, screaming for help from its original parents. Yet no matter how many times you tried to rescue the art child, the “police” won’t do anything about it.

The Great War raged on countless fronts, dragging thousands of other species into it, either out of survival, or for war. Of the most affected were the Seraphims and the Nebulans.

You stared weakly at the bubbling kettle that was heating up the water for your morning coffee. You had a rough night last night trying to put your three kids to bed. As simple as it should've been, your husband Alfred never made it easy.

You loved Alfred but you also hated him for not helping or making your job as a mother easier.
