|Every point counts! Even one is fine!|
A Poet's Pride“I, alone, know poetry.”A Poet's Pride by scriptureofthescribe
What a foolish phrase.
For poetry is not about what you know.
It’s about what you think,
What you feel,
What you are.
But it should never be use as a higher ground.
So even if someone criticizes your best poem,
Do not ever say that they “just don’t understand it.”
Try to understand them and maybe, if you can,
Ask to help them write a poem so they can think,
And can feel,
And can be.
Another dayAnother day goes by with no accomplishments.Another day by scriptureofthescribe
Another night when you cry yourself to sleep.
Another week lacking love and compassion,
Another month where there’s nothing to keep.
Another season passes without a huge deal.
Another year, you decide not to fake it.
Another decade, and you don’t give a crap.
Another moment, but you’re not here to take it.
The EnemyI thought myself a hero.The Enemy by scriptureofthescribe
I hoped to save the world.
But in the end, I’ll still descend
Because I was so mad.
I only wanted justice.
I tried to bring out peace.
But never mind, I was so blind
To all the friends I had.
I couldn’t stop my anger
From overtaking me.
But anyway, I have to say
Straitjackets aren’t so bad.
Lucid LullabyShut the drapes of your mind.Lucid Lullaby by scriptureofthescribe
Begin to explore the world of your head.
Let your thoughts unwind
As you lie in your bed.
Close the door of your day
To unlock the night.
Let your troubles go away
As your dreams take flight.
When you start counting sheep,
And your sleep-self becomes awake,
Let your mind take a leap
Into a world that you can make.
