Hey I'm Thomas Ware. I've been on Poemhunter, posting poems for something like a year, two years. I just never really discovered the forum until now, I'm not much for forums. I have about 35 poems published, which is only the poems I thought were worthy of being put on the internet. I've written like 15 or so others that I deemed not good enough and scrapped. Please come check out my profile and comment, rate. I'd love some constructive criticism. However if you don't like morbid or dark stuff don't torture yourself, that's my main subject matter. Thanks for reading this.

i am paapa esuman... i write what i see and feel within and around me... got more interesting poems try to read them.
success they said can be found in education
that is the only master key
to develop and build a wealthy nation
but that is not free
the impoverish can't afford it
only attained in schools
acquired by financially fit
only comes out to be fools
forgetting wisdom supersedes all
knowledge gotten through learning
ignorance makes them fall
failing to receive understanding
wisdom brings authority
power remains knowledge
education seeks vanity
leaving you in bondage
wisdom is not in the classrooms
neither found in schools
we sweep it always with brooms
and remain fools
wisdom lie waste on the street
reaching men to be wise
calls out with special treat
for fools to rise
letting them shine to His glory
and humbles the pride
they tell a new story
and forget the tears they 've cried
wisdom remains the creator's gift
gotten from life lessons
not meant for the subtle and swift
to the humble is a blessing
seek wisdom more than education
to build a great empire
not a wealthy nation
wisdom should be our greatest desire

Hello. I am new here and just walking around to imbibe the rarefied air. I am being fitted into a round peg for Key Difference and I needed the breather. Please feel free to comment on my poems. In fact, I would appreciate constructive criticism. This could be a mutual thing. Don't be surprised by the age - I am a reincarnation of a long line of writers (majority of whom are poets, some are cats) . Thank you.

Dear fellow aspiring poets, I joined this web site in early Nov.2013 and have 28 poems posted so far, many of these written in college (40 years ago) . A few of my longer and more recent poems took months to complete. The poem " I would be a fool..." was written during a dream. I was sitting at a desk composing a poem in my dream, I woke up and literally wrote it down from memory (It isn't very long) . I love it when a poem literally writes itself. It's like you're white hot and it just pours out. Check out " Driving Alone Through the Sand Hills of Nebraska" to get an idea of what I'm talking about. The heart of this poem was written on a road trip from SD to OK. You can't imagine how many times I stopped to jot down new ideas. It took several months to finish it however. Another more recent poem that also almost wrote itself is " The Ball Is In God's Court." Hope you like these poems which truly are " my only children" and which document both my life and my loves over the last fifty years. May your children bring you as much joy!

Hello all, I have recently published my first anthology. It is 'the poet from hell' and is on Amazon and Create Space ISBN -10: 1491031271.
Hers is a small sample from Walk along 'The Way':
City of antiquity, evolved by sword
From Muslim to Christian over ages;
Madrid – food, wine, museums,
A convent where nuns’ feet
Bared for a widowed princess;
Then rail to Sarria on Camino –
Way of St James the Great –
Final section of the pilgrim way
Over mountains edging Gaule and Espana;
Scallop shell the metaphor for ways
Of Camino to Santiago de Compostela.

Hi fellow poets, please feel free to check out and comment on my contributions here on this site or on my personal web-site, http://we-r-1.info/. My poetry is often of a spiritual but not religious nature and will, I believe, appeal to those seeking a deeper understanding of their spiritual essence. It would be great to hear from you! Cheers!
