Doors and Windows

Jan 7th, 2018 | By | Category: Essays

I treasure everything. I treasure every single sort. I love all around me. I love all who are around me. I embrace every little thing. I embrace all who talk and walk. I feel all. I feel all who feel me. Just things. Just people. No penetration. No feeling. All things and Everyone Pass by and Remain outside. There can be doors. There can be windows. There can be walls. There can be curtains. Cold can be warm. Warm can be cold. In the end, It is just a passing condition.

A Poem

Nov 21st, 2013 | By | Category: Essays

 Forgotten  When your not around my smile turns into a frown. When I see your face I’m disgraced with a bitter taste, Time with you is a waste that I can not seem to escape, Moving on is the right action to take , But instead I sit and wait, feeling guilty about any forward step I take. For now I’ll wallow in my selfish sorrow. I can not help hoping one day I’ll be able to grasp the bright light of tomorrow.   -David Steelton

Three days out I made the non-perishable hors d’oeuvres.  They perished. Two days out I cleaned the house.  It got dirty The day before, I prepared the main course.  It burnt in the oven. So we went somewhere else and did something else. …..You don’t always get what you planned. …..You can’t always get what you want. I want some brown sugar. .….It’s not going to happen. I did something else.

On peace and war A Poem by Irene Ciocirlan, 7th grade, Hershey Middle School The promise of peace touches our lives breaking our inner complex structures making us free and happy for a second. Yet when we are promised the touch of war the ears of our tangled souls perk up for a minute And with the spark of true greed we take action… That’s what makes us truly messed up for a lifetime.

   I Have Decided Yes I have decided not only to follow Jesus But to follow the way of Love Cause The Way Knows The Way People can say Love is corny and out of date they can say Love is for fools That it brings us nothing but heartache But by the way Africa is not that far away And the fracking that’s being done Affects us all here on the planet And the love cells in our bodies do ascend and descend And their ebb and flow and their vibrations Travel around the earth and into the outer most[Read more...]
