:: Simply Poetic | Second Entry ::Come forth, all with senses.
See the magnificence of his comeuppance;
Hear the voice of merciless preaching;
Smell the incense of glory be to the Highest;
Feel the trembling of fear that oppose him;
Taste the bitter sweetness of those who shall fall;
Come forth and believe in my brother
Just as the Lord believes in him.

When you're the cause of someone's tears?
Does it bring you joy
Every time you insult the innocent?
Do you know what you do
When you speak with your vicious tongue?
Do you realize what happens
Every time you laugh at another's sorrow?
You see a woman with male friends
And you accuse her of craving sexual attention.
You notice a boy wearing glasses
And you tease him with the name "four-eyes."
There's a group of peace lovers;
You proclaim they're annoying hipsters.
The teenage boys who love each other;
You tear them asunder by calling them abominations.
Do you find pleasure
In being the source of a poor soul's agony?
Do you even think
Of what the consequences could be?
Does it satisfy you
To make someone feel inferior to you?
Does it quench your thirst
Whenever you rule over the oppressed?
If a young man loves writing poetry,
Immediately you dismiss him as a lonely loser.

You've come with an almost
that dress suits you.
Whenever you're around,
the grass is greener and
the leaves are pristine.
Flowers embrace your glow,
blooming freely with love.
Your light-hearted kisses are
strong enough to melt
the coldest hearts, yet
gentle enough for reminiscing.
Fluttering wings caress
the most silent winds.
The waters shimmer from
your shining radiance and
every drop and splash
becomes wonderfully pleasant.
Even when there's darkness,
the plethora of stars
illuminate your beauty.
The sun and the moon
cherish you almost as much
as I do.
If only you didn't
meet autumn every year.

Please don't cry.
I don't want your tears to be
the last thing
I know you've lost a lot of people...
The wounds are still fresh.
The past still hurts you, doesn't it?
You didn't want to feel that kind of pain...
You wanted to heal.
What I did just now...
I know that's not what you wanted because you wanted us
to escape together, but...
You're the one who has to live on,
To continue to live-- like this?
It would be cruel.
The sacrifice I made was my choice
and my choice alone.
I'm sorry if this breaks your heart.
Everything I did...?
I did it for you,
for our comrades,
and for the future. . .
A future you'll have to live

To respect yourself
To care for your own well being
To cherish yourself
To wrap your arms around who you are
To express yourself
To practice random acts of kindness
To forgive yourself
To let go of the wrong and painful
To trust yourself
To believe in the positive light
To treat yourself
To display love like you would your best friend
To embrace yourself
To like all the things about you
To realize yourself
To stop comparing yourself to others
To accept yourself
To understand that perfection doesn't exist
To love yourself
To love your family
To love your friends
To love your partner
To love your cherished ones
To love everything you have
To love everyday
Always With Us

Daniel was now about four, five years old, and getting ready for his first day of school, of Kindergarten. His mother had recently suffered another bout of infuriation toward Valance, who had made one remark about "What happens if the other children find out Daniel's partly plant?" Apparently, she had assumed he meant to reveal it to the other kids, and instantly snapped, chucking a vase at his head, and - thankfully - missing.
Suppose she really didn't want me to have any part in his life, Valance thought as he leaned back in the chair at his desk, reading by the sunlight, slate-violet eyes not really seeing the words on the page in front of him. Not beyond giving him a name - which she has probably already claimed as something she thought of anyway. No, not probably, he already knew as much from the whisperings he tuned in on.
As he listened to the tumult outside of his door, of the babysitter attempting to get the rowdy young c

Your illusions cannot trick me.
There's no facade you can use
That will ever deceive me again.
Quit playing games;
Your world of fantasy
Was killed by reality.
You can't fool me anymore.
I'm too smart, too cool,
And too awesome for you.
All of your humorous lies
Have burned to ash and died.
Your lives are far behind me.
There will be no more
Regret, or sorrow.
I'm done with you.
:: The Certainty of Grudges ::Tell me.:: The Certainty of Grudges ::2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Why should anyone hold a grudge?
Is it worth the aggression?
Is it worth the pain?
Is it worth the spitefulness?
Is it worth the time?
What good does it do?
To always be angry?
To always bear hatred?
To always be upset?
To always bear ill will?
If a person holds a grudge?
Why can't they be honest?
Why can't they forgive?
Why can't they let go?
Why can't they move on?
If the other keeps going with their life?
Do they not deserve peace?
Do they not deserve serenity?
Do they not deserve tranquility?
Do they not deserve respect?
Because I am certain
That the only thing
Holding a grudge does...
...Is simply bring the bearer eternal sorrow.

My favorite time.
In every twenty-four hours,
That's what I look forward to.
I gather all I've done in the time.
The positive, the negative, and everything I learned;
None of them go without peace.
In the brightest days,
I embrace everything that I have.
Even in the blackest nights,
I take responsibility for my mistakes.
Because no one is perfect,
Everyone has their moments, good or bad.
Because everyone in this world
Has twilight within them.
True to who I am,
I shall not run from my reality.
Be honest with yourself
So that you can love your life.
I may not always be fearless,
But I can conquer my fears.
I may not win all of my battles,
But I can get up after every loss.
Never apologize for your feelings;
If they are truly from your heart,
You will find that you are real.
So keep on walking and always remember,
Twilight is real, just like all of us.
Lit. Daily Pick Volume 3: March 2013At the start of the new year, I promised myself that I would be giving back to the literature community here on deviantArt again like I used to. Before I began university, I was able to help admin groups that featured deviants on a daily or weekly basis, and I missed having the time and opportunity to help lesser known deviants have their chance to shine. Now that I've finally graduated, I decided upon a small project that I hope to be able to keep up with: My Lit. Daily Pick Project.Lit.

What is my Lit. Daily Pick Project?
Every day, I choose one literature deviation that I have recently come across that I found to exceptionally stand out to me. That deviation remains featured on my page for 24 hours in my daily pick folder for any watcher or visitor to see and hopefully view, comment, or fave. At the end of the month, all of the deviations that I chose to feature are then featured in an art news journal together. The purpose of this daily feature is to help lesser k
