Hands on BUT HANDS OFF!

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — Tags: , — migueltio @ 7:51 pm

It is amazing to see

what hands can make.

It is amazing to taste

what hands can bake.

It is amazing to know

what hands can grow.

It is amazing to realize

what hands can materialize.

The beauty of what they

make we can see with our

own eyes but despite a

promising commission

despite a prestigious

position what we do with

our hands WE MUST ULTIMATELY

RECEIVE PERMISSION!

 

Hands are not to be

put to inappropriate use

hands are to embrace not

to abuse hands can direct

but others have the right

to reject.

 

DO NOT ABUSE WOMEN

DO NOT ABUSE GIRLS

DO NOT ABUSE MEN

DO NOT ABUSE BOYS

PEOPLE ARE TO BE LOVED

WITH APPROPRATE RESPECTS

NOT BE MOLESTED LIKE CHEAP

PLAY TOYS!

 

Do not abuse any animal

whether it is wild or a domestic pet.

Abuse of anyone or anything only

Marks you with great shame

and follows you with deep regret.

 

The use of our hands must

be to do good, staying focused

on doing the things that they

should.

New Inspirations

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 9:56 pm

Writing today

it’s a new season

it’s a new day

I cannot think of

a better reason

to write

before this cold day

retreats into a

stormier night

in this

recently arrived

new year

I look at each day

be it cold

snowbound

dreary

grey

as no time better

than the present

to think what I

wish to think

and write down

what I wish to say

hoping to light

someone’s light

making bright

someone’s day

believing that I

can always do my

best not only

to preach but to

inspire as I

teach to inspire

my students to inspire

my family to inspire

my friends

to look

to dream

way up high

and for those

dreams

to constantly

reach.

Aftermath Moving On

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 12:43 pm

After the storm

after the square off

after the skirmish

after the scrum

what is resolved

after all is said

after all is done?

 

What is the new

direction to be taken

to ensure a better

investment toward

future measures without

so much resentment?

 

Can an accord be reached

can a contract be agreed

upon without being breached

can a mutual peace be

realistically sought can

good communication be

realistically taught can

mutual contentment be

found by itself or does

it have to be

uneasily bought?

 

What is the next action

that transpires from the

next thought offering

honesty to the table

while under the table

treachery is the

instability being

truthfully sought

while closed door

motives dousing all the

helpful votives continue

to occur unseen and

unquestioned with no

desired possibility by those

with rightful capability

of being exposed

found out

or caught?
