I am a believer of “A good friend is a connection to life, a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in totally insane world.” [Lois Wyse, Author]. And, if I have another friend to claim for, it is my invisible friend: my cyber-world friend who told me that, “writing is an exercise of the mind, ” in this insane world. Therefore, my writings and poetry are not educational matters; ... more »

Efren Petalver Carranza Poems
Kids! Kids! Kids!
You're once a sperm that your father didn't waste, Dove to your mother's egg and gave her a positive test, Became a fetus and made her crave for nuts and coke, In nine months pain and joy; she's quite of a joke.
The Beauty of a Mother
The beauty of a woman starts When her womb begins to grow The child that she'll give birth Soon will call her, “my mother”
The Farmer and His Carabao
Sitting on a saddle-like mounted stones, Watching the river runs gently yonder, Wondrous, countless, tiny whirlpools, Sublimely caught his eyes to ponder;
Life is a Journey of Ups and Downs
I am Perfect
I am perfect And no one can do anything about it Show me the difference between right and wrong And I will forgive you for not loving me
Love is My Money
Love or Money raises a question in mind But I’d be a fool to give up money for love For I was born in the center of love by poor Whom to pay back only my love not money
The Secret Leaves of My Notebook
Page after page, I wrote your name in my journal, With flowers and bees drawn in rhythm of blue; “I love you” I said in calligraphy of black and red, But no page was ever torn to hand them to you.
It’s….. Like a group of words In mythical poem When it’s hummed
[To my Father, I Love You] Under the heat of the sun or heavy rain, I watched you plow and toil the ground,
Life and Friendship
To be laughed at, ridiculed or mocked, to be disdained and or to be liked, believed, and to be praised, we own ourselves.
Every Question Has An Answer
When wings of birds can no longer spread To fly high to their greatest flights May differ an old man who can hardly head Up and down the stairs with all his plights
History, Science, and Math in Geography
Please let your brevity light open wide And help those ten fingers do his math He's a digit off to divide
A Voice of Reason
As I fiddled her words from the start Her intellectual voice cried out loud That tore my heart and fall apart For this little town to make us proud
The Grammar of Life

Kids! Kids! Kids!
You're once a sperm that your father didn't waste,
Dove to your mother's egg and gave her a positive test,
Became a fetus and made her crave for nuts and coke,
In nine months pain and joy; she's quite of a joke.
Valentine's day could have been better but you dare,
A name Valentino could've been your worst nightmare;
So you thought February thirteen is a lot wiser
Of choosing us as your parents; Kevin is much nicer.
Everyday, we watch you grow, walk, and play,
And we thought of your being alone is lonely;
Eighteen months thereafter is another baby, ...
