Dave Dafes Poems

</>(This poem was Inspired by the 23rd psalm 'n' the poem Invictus written by William Ernest Henley (1849–1903)

Sore as hell’s depth away from Mercy’s Coast,
The thick clouds of shadows that embraced my Bole.

Love, sublime celestial flames,
Maid from Paradise hails,
We enter, scorch'd with intense ardor,
O Cherub, your shrine!

Wandered down the woods again
Thru' the thicken'd forest saw i,
Y'ur face engrav'd on ev'ry flora,
Lighting the trees with y'ur magic aura.

Health fades,
Wealth fades,
Fame fades,
Life and all it holds,

One word can right a wrong
One idea can inspire generations
One hand can lift a burden
One head can quench world crisis

Her eyes glows with venom,
When she winks its death.
With a tongue coated with poison,
Her lips paralyzes like a viper's kiss.

I looked out my window at the silvery moon,
Somewhere in its rays, I saw your image.
Painted by the starry glow of the night sky,
Illuminating the shady curtains with the sparkle in your eyes

I feel like a song without the words.
A bird without its wings.
A man without his soul.
A heart without a home.

We laid together skin to skin entwined in fierce passion.
Heart to heart, head to head, eye to eye in ecstatic dight.
Our lips lock’d In a wet kiss, my will to her cession.
Driven to yonder height,

We meet people each day.
Some just cleave to us never going away,
Some just impress us we pray they stay
Always and forever till our hair is grey.

My life is an endless melody,
Above life's' every boundaries.
I hear it jingle, the distant echoes of elation
That hails my golden spring.

The day fades, though I wish it linger
It wouldn't, so sat I with my liquor
Trying to drown myself in the noise thy silence beget,
The night is long and filled with terrors,

I watched,
As It broke my heart
My heart,

He woke up on the wrong side
With a mood like sour grapes
Like wormwood, all things around him tastes,
That which prior amused him,

How beautiful art thou,
O regal bud!
Bloated with fecund whelps
She's the Spring,

The power of love can transform a foe
As hate doth poison the life
The power of fire can burn
As the wind doth cools

Formlessly unfaced
Fluid in rigidity,
Invisible with irrefutable effects,
Invariable in varied degrees,

Like my forebear, a hunter I am.
Skillfully, I hunt'd on life's every field.
With my horde I ran life's race,
Chased anything that cross'd my path.

Each day I live as if my last
To give the world the best of me
I seize every moment to make a blast
Exploit every opportunity a step at a time

I said I'm gonna leave him,
He said don’t leave me.
I told him my mind is made up,
He said he don’t wanna break up.

He was diagnosed with a genetic disorder at a very tender age and bequeathed with an inferior endowment from nature, He realized he had to fight several battles of survival if he must survive his childhood. The poverty of his body kindled a passion for knowledge and endowed with an inquisitive mind, he began to inquire about Life, Purpose and Self. These questions led him in a search for answers, which he must find alone. That thirst gave birth to the odyssey for the discovery of self.

He has a zeal for self development and the development of the full potentials of any member of the human race. He love to walk with the "stones which the builders rejected" to transform their lives and becoming the chief cornerstone.

The Best Poem Of Dave Dafes

I'Ve Conquered

</>(This poem was Inspired by the 23rd psalm 'n' the poem Invictus written by William Ernest Henley (1849–1903)

Sore as hell’s depth away from Mercy’s Coast,
The thick clouds of shadows that embraced my Bole.
Through the fierce winds that did me Howl,
I adulate the heavenly Host.
For my undaunted Spirit.

Tore by Situation’s claws Bits by Bit
Tossed by the hurricane of Fate,
My faith falter not nor Quit.
Dealt the violent bout of Bate,
I remain bloodied but unbowed.

Though I sail thru’ Scylla’s Shore
Encompassed by the insidious cohort’s of Fiends
When seduced by life’s slyly Whore
And Squeezed by Treacherous Friends
I shall remain unshaken

It matters not the foe nor the arsenals
I did combat. I am the Architect of my Destiny.
I am the Premier of my Fate when courage leaks ‘n’ defeat gnarls
Though I fail at life’s every scrutiny,
I shall not surrender. The darkest night nor storm beside,
I am the Commander of my Soul.
’Tis not for the Stars nor Chance to will, ‘tis mine to decide
I've conquered

Dave Dafes Quotes

We are made by what breaks us

Your weakness is your greatest strength, use it.

He that conquers his self is greater than he that conquered a city

Blaze your own trail. Be not afraid to be different, only then can you stand out in the crowd of mediocrity .

There is a divine spark in the Spirit of men that makes them defy all odds to be gods among men.

Nothing created can stop you but you.

When buffeted by the storms of life; look within your Spirit is a strength you know not of, for such times as these...

Everything happen for a reason, nothing walks with aimless feet
