Poetry From the Streets

At the end of the day

my hands tired,

my stomach growling.

Pushing forward

into the cold dark night.

The burning of icicles

hanging from my whiskers.

Breath hot on crooked lips.

Collapsing onto the sidewalk,

my bag thrown to the soft,

welcoming concrete.

Sleep comes at last.

By: William K.

Billions of people under a spell,

without an umbrella

in the midst of mental, physical, and spiritual hell.

While the true origin,

scattered like stars and planets amongst the heavens,

seek to expand from 666 to sevens.

While battling the good fight,

where some of us lose our will,

like the value of a tattered 2 dollar bill.

Hoping to be discovered by the angels of these planes,

that are themselves caught within some

trials of tribulation and pain.

My blood sweat and tears

go out to the possibility

of divine change.

As I secretly devise a plan to rearrange.

Revealing the forgotten keys of ascension,

to the good fallen angels

in bad angels’ detention.

That rest amongst the zombies

in these places of descent ion.

Where they lost focus of those

who need their attention.

To those who are here, I plead

to rise above the physical State,

eat no more of these lies

that have been placed on your plates.

It is within you to return to heavens’ gate.

144,000 angels

to save the woman and mankind

from this evil fate,

of sorrow, and ignorance, belief and Hate.

When the sun comes out,

my petals slowly open,

reaching toward the warmth of light.

Feeding me with the glowing radiance of love.

Sky father giving me his smiling joy.

Letting me know that each day as I slowly grow,

Everything is perfect.

My leaves and branches tickling the breeze

as it flows by into eddies of laughter

and currents of springtime.

Soon I will have fruit to give to the world.

Perfect little babies,

carried off to start their own lives.

Lives of joy and love,

reaching each day,

reaching for the sun.
