The Pretty Face Of Earth..


and i am a jewel on it …
i the kindness and mercy..
i the knowledge and empathy..
the pretty face of earth..
and you are a scar on it..
you the cruelty and misery..
you the ignorance and brutality …
the beautiful garden of earth..
and i am flower in it..
i the light and positivity..
i the love and sympathy..
the beautiful garden of earth..
and you are a thorn in it..
you the darkness and negativity,
you the pain and insensitivity,

Poem of the Day

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
