When Time Began

Try to imagine our world without time
A timeless world that festers and rots;
But if some change no matter how brief
Could change this world and make a difference.
The “now” would be different than “before”
Indicative of the passing of time.
Thus time and change are related events
Because passing of time depends on change.
In our real world changes have never ceased
Some happen repeatedly some just once:
The breaking of waves against the seashore;
Or it’s a particular falling leaf.
When we first counted repeated changes
It was only then, friend, when time began.
Albert Ahearn

The Poets Are The Revolution Of Love - Not A Poem


It doesn't really matter how many people are reading us, but what they feel at the end of reading us. Because sometimes one poem could change a life. I was contemplating life as useless, when the poem of a young girl caught my attention. She wanted to change the world. It was so much energy and enthusiasm that I could not help to smile thinking: sweet but how could only one person do it? That question will sit with me for a life time maybe. I can't remember the poem's nor the poet's name, only the feel that came from it. Helped me to realize that we all can do something. That each of us regardless of age, gender or status can change the world for the better or for the worst. Nothing stays as it is. By simply being alive we change things.. The poets might be the first dreamers to try for the change of the world, they should do it. Because all their being is a heart. When feeling the entire world with a heart we become so sensible that even the bending of a flower could make our heart beat different. The most peaceful people I feel to be not the monks but the poets. Maybe not all of course, we go through different stages. We focus first only inside, being a bit selfish but eventually we connect to own soul and from there with the outside world. And then wow! What an amazing view when you look at things with your soul! Everything is dressed in orange or in pink, even if beneath are awful things. It is merely a soul's reason of being to know how to forgive and find some reason to smile, for right about anything. But the poets also have one duty. To follow the changes to tell them truthful, and to raise consciousness and awareness at a higher level.
To start the revolution? Or to dream about a peaceful future? The poets are the first to wonder of how long the people can resist being fed up with so much violence and careless lies and greed? The system that is supposed to make the world thrive is failing everyday. Time for the people of the entire world to realize that money cannot control us. How can we sit and watch how earth is being killed? Please go to that link and read. Local sea.. Local fisherman... In a short time we may take our mind away from eating any kind of food, as everything is connected. Only we humans, stubbornly keeping disconnected...How hard and painful to imagine the grandchildren's struggle to survive if we keep waiting for others to rule our lives. What can I do for the pink color to be seen by future generation? What can you do for your grand or grandgrand child to be able to dance in an orange light?
Let us dear friends search for connections. Connect to each other and than to everything. Through words of love let's find a way to live in peace with all life forms. Let's try to not to further destroy but save our water, soil or air.
Keep your pen flowing dear poets! Write and create peacefully to inspire others just as that poem of a young girl.
Peace, Love And Smiles,

*The link is old news now, but the harm is still there and it will be there for who knows how long...

The Change In Anyone..

Don’t try to change someone,
As someone can’t change anyone,
for everyone assume that they are someone,
No one has ever changed anyone.
Unless and until someone has shown,
The miracle or magic on the land of barren,
And harem, the fashion of missionary and mission,
Has anyone changed someone?
Ever on this earth, until that person decides?
when the change is seen in someone' heart,
change is made out their own calculation,
sometimes miscalculation and misconception.
a few hurt others and a few hurt themselves,
through social activities those are not normal.

Talk Of Revolution

Ever since I was old enough to understand what society was, all that talk of a revolution made sense. Stereotypes, class warfare, corruption and general skullduggery is evident everywhere we look. The societal views that most of us share have been implanted into our minds through the media and propaganda. Most of these views are indeed detrimental to us as a people. I believe a revolution to be a new start and fresh beginning. Society is far too messed up for minor reparations. We will need an entirely new way of doing things. The way things are now will destroy us. Actually, it has already destroyed our sense of identity. Through a revolution is the only way some things will ever change.

When you consider the extreme lengths that some are willing to go just to feel accepted, you get a general idea of how twisted society is. This is a major problem. You learn about individuals of the same communities and race exalting other individuals over others due to skin complexion. Some beautiful women are willing to cause physical damage to themselves in order to fit into the image society said they should mimic. The pain of unacceptance can paralyze. Especially, if you're not accepted within your own communities. We learn about some individuals degrading themselves because they don't choose to behave the way society wants them to. Individuals who are compassionate and caring are looked down upon while those who are cold and heartless are exalted. What have we come to as a nation? It will take a revolution to shake this up.

Let's talk about the entertainment industry. Of course, it does an excellent job keeping us entertained but search deeper. What is it really doing to further us as a people? Nothing. It has actually paralyzed millions and stunted the growth of the revolutionary spirit. It's almost as if we are having a break while still on the clock. So many of us don't care. The things they feed us through the media does not instruct us on how to fix ourselves. They don't tell us how to solve the major problems. All they do is show us the major problems. That is a distraction in itself. The crazy thing is, those individuals who really have something to say are kept away from the spotlight. Most of them aren't even accepted by the people. Society condones any behavior that will keep us in the shape we're already in and reject anything and anyone that may threaten this way of life with a true change. Even though the need for change is obvious, it is not welcomed. The entertainment industry will continue to put out what sells. Unfortunately, what sells are those things that will keep us oppressed. Some of us want to see something different but the majority don't. This will make a true revolution that much harder to come by.

The lower class communities suffer the most in society's current state. Everything just leeches off of the ghetto. This society will give the underprivileged youths a false image of what success is supposed to look like. These children may then become discouraged from striving for these things and lose their sense of self. They can become so preoccupied with their idols that they don't think about trying to elevate themselves. That's a part of the trap. All it does is keeps the lower class in that position and keep the upper class in a higher one. That's how the money is made as well. One person can't change these situations but talking about it enough will at least bring awareness. Once you have that, eventually, someone will come up and make a change some day. Once we've realized our true conditions, the revolution has begun.

Looking back at history, I've noticed that most of our changes didn't happen without a serious struggle. Unfortunately, some blood had to be spilled just to gain support or awareness to an issue. Without those individuals and their contributions to society, we'll be living in an even darker world than today. It's safe to say that history does repeat itself. We are now dealing with some serious issues. These are things that we can't afford to let continue. Though it is impossible to fix the world, if you can make a difference in the life of one person, your job is complete. To me, that is the fruit of a revolution.
