Power to the People

Uprisings, protests, rebellion, civil unrest, riots

Are forms of criticism to political systems.

All require courage, guts, and (lots of) blood

In order to be heard by the powers that be, as they laze in bed.

The latter line their pockets using hand gestures

To acquire and spend their ill gotten gains,

While those vying for change use peace

And the strength of their vocal chords to be

Their delivery system for their opinions,

They are always loud, proud, stout, and ground

Out of strength of the lands they’re defendants of

Valiantly trying to overcome overwhelming

Odds to live honorably in their homes, driving,

Driving away those who wish to turn them

Into lambs for the slaughter, as they rebel

Against injustice, inequality, oppression,

Subjugation, and destruction of unique ethics.

They use muscles, ingenuity, and individual powers

To forward their needs, knowing that few are

Heard, appreciated, acknowledged, adapted

Into a system that favors only those who corrupt,

Avid for power, willing to encroach on others

To possess what they deem as ‘necessary ‘.

When will we learn that humanity needs

Its world community to survive any difficulties

Unseen, small, large or in betweens?

We need awareness, acceptance, and self-love

To promote healthy relationships among family,

Friends, peers, colleagues, and everyone else who try

To help in the development of each individual child’s

Character who needs everyone’s support

To feel safe to express his/her emotions

And beliefs freely without enduring oppositions

That are degrading, demeaning, or cause destructions.

Unfold

Life has many folds, twists, turns, and abysses,

We try to unfold and straighten the creases,

But it’s a delicate job, even hazardous, as The folds are hidden and need to become clear,

Straight, and easily seen, analyzed, and far

From misunderstandings and misgivings.

Is it a thing to need unfolding?

The simple answer is: ‘Yes, it absolutely needs doing!’

In this world, where there so many possibilities

For problems to unfurl, it is imperative to realize

That clarity in speech and actions aren’t always

Perceived as they are, but rather given a political,

Even social agitprops that have tendencies

To insite people into violent and intolerant behavioral

Activities, that help increase gaslighting’s imposing

Ideologies. They incur great wrath, aggressing

Against others’ rights, stripping them of dignity,

Pride, selfworth, even their humanity.

As humans, we need to untangle our ingrained

Stereotypes by humanizing each other, and accept

The difference the same way we accept

That siblings differ, though they come from

The same set of parents, gene pool, and environment.

Always Been!!

Change, chaos, challenge, charm, chimp!

As I have always needed stability and certitude,

Life has thrown me many curve balls, making me limp

With the heavy burdens of life’s fortitude.

As I have always been a shy introvert, Life’s changes required me to get out of my comfort

Zone. I became a teacher, when that demanded

Being an extrovert, connecting wholly with my student.

As I have always been dirrect and honest,

It has given me trouble at home as well as at work.

I stood by my values, added some valuable insight

For my entourage and myself.

Learing from others

Is a necessity if you want to avoid falling into trouble.

It’s not demeaning to know you can grow and change,

Even if that means relying on others for help.

Being an introvert means, for me, that being among people

Is difficult, and commands all of my intellect

To be able to follow all the required social cues

And demands for certain behavior, responses,

Even patterns of speech. Implying great concentration

That taxes me emotionally as well as intellectually.

At times i feel like a chimp that is a horrendously

Mischievous creature that becomes nasty when

Imposed upon to be social while needing solitude..
