The Cedar Is Me

I look upon the four hundred year old Cedar tree
That has survived such chaos, death,  decimation
Of great forests of pine trees by invaders who ‘free’
It of its natural resources, life, and vegetation.
Encased in the trunk of the ancient tree, the world
Is small, burning hot under the summer sun, flashing
Its heat and brilliance to help everything grow into a postcard
That’s photoshopped into being breathtaking
In its organized life, only disturbed by humans barking
Out order for dissolving the inner and outer beauty of its solitude.

Slipping out of the of the cedar tree, I take my human form
And gaze astounded on my reflection: wrinkled skin,
Darkened splotches, and great disillusionment
Darkens the depth of my eyes as I lay bare upon the bank.
The scenes of war and decimation I witnessed
Have been imprinted on my soul, waiting for any deed
That will alleviate my despair that humanity is a dying breed
That needs new blood, ingenuity,  and values
To help it defeat famine, war, racism, and religious discriminations.

Fightback

FIGHTBACK

Self doubt is the worst feeling ever
Self worth is even worse, when negative, even bleaker.
How do you fight against the insubstantial?
How do you overcome the intangible?

BLM movement

(Exert from the poem, Power to The People, PerfectlyFlawed (My eBook on Amazon, Nook, iTunes, and Google Books, as well as paperback and hardcover) by Malak klamoni Chehab)

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 destructive.

Lie To Me

When leaders become violators of human rights

Using their lagging conniving techniques

To manipulate, motivate, and ensorcells

Those who are ignorant or lack intellectual acumens

To lead themselves out of a rut created by our systems

Of economic growth that preside with the material worlds,

We, the people, become their Puppets, thoughtless.

Politicians’ speeches today contain content that uses

Demeaning, derogatory, even vulgar contents

That empower one race or religion over others!

Why, why do we still follow these creatures of dissention?

Why don’t we permit ourselves to be humane and lead to a graduation

Of compassion, empathy, understanding, and humanization

Of our beings? Let us express our beliefs freely,

Without rancor, hate, or division!

Man’s abhorance for what s/he doesn’t acknowledge

As accurate, real, truly verifiable is what is limiting

His progress ethically, for s/he seems to be regressing

Into polytheism and empowering scientific knowledge

Over values that teach humanity not to stay the course

Of being altruistic to their own variety and difference.
