George Krokos Poems

Freedom from hunger and freedom from pain
freedom from loss and so freedom from gain.
Freedom to give and freedom to share
freedom from want and that of despair.

When you hear all those trees
how they sing in the breeze
with their branches and leaves
which are now falling down

The sun was setting with all its power and glory
on the horizon behind the sea as I stood there
on the sand which lay along the water's edge.

The textbook poets try to bind you down
with all of those rules they call renown.
In a strict meter and rhyme they do write
and like to see others match their plight.

The ship is sinking and we all have to get out
I wonder if there are enough life boats about,
that are able to take us safely to the distant shore
where we may live happily for a while once more.

Without some kind of devotion
showing a little bit of emotion
with something known as love
there is no grace from above.

Underneath the wild lemon tree
was where I found my love to be.
Lying there with the lapse of time
and the gusts of a winter's clime.

I fell in love and lost my heart
and that was why it tore apart.
The love given wasn't returned
by the one for whom it had yearned.

Option #1 (For personal recitation)
O my God,
Do not ever forsake me dear Lord
even though it does appear at times

Don't we just love the smell of fresh bread
the aroma from it goes straight to our head.
The same can be said about other things we eat
especially those we may consider to be a treat.

This universe is God’s creation what more is there to say
and so everything that happens in it is a part of His play.
It’s only when something starts to go wrong on a major scale
God personally has to come down to make sure it doesn’t fail.

We see no real essential difference
we see all has the same inference
there is no discrimination
there is no condemnation

I am at a loss when it comes to loving thee
and wonder how this could ever really be.
Love's a feeling that rises up from the heart
and is directed towards one who's apart;

The fragrant flowers in the garden
do speak to me of nature's pardon
that she has again granted us all
tho it seems we're letting her fall.

George Krokos Biography

George is an aspiring poet who has written quite a number of poems inspired by nature, science, philosophy and the spiritual aspects of life. He has studied eastern and western religions and associated philosophy for over 35 years and has practised various forms of Yoga and meditation. He is about to publish a book called The Seeds of Life - Poetry and Prose which is a collection of poems and some prose written over the past 35 or so years of his life. From a very early age I had intuitive feelings and thoughts about my surroundings including the people around me. But growing up changed a lot of things. Then in my mid twenties I had a spiritual awakening after reading a book called 'Autobiography of a Yogi' by Paramahansa Yogananda along with other books by him and quite a few more writers which helped explain and confirm my earlier life experiences and also helped me to get back on the spiritual path. The spiritual and religious type books include various scriptures from the world's major religious traditions mostly dealing with the inner mystical path by authors such as Yogananda, Meher Baba, Muktananda, Hazrat Inayat Khan, Rumi, Hafiz, Sivananda, Aurobindo and many others. I also like science fiction and sometimes wonder whether the sci-fi authors themselves have delved deeply into various mystical or religious classics. I like to go for walks in the bush and spend time with nature, travel to country and non crowded and non polluted areas when and if possible, meditate, listen to music, read various books and articles, do physical exercise including a form of Karate and Tai-chi which I have been developing over the last four or five years. I am trying to live in such a way so as to cause only minimal pollution which is easier said than done and somewhat difficult and at the same time striving to achieve and realise our Ultimate ideal state of being by developing a spiritual awareness of our oneness with all life. I am also at present coming to terms with the loss of family members and preparing to move into another place to live. I like to listen to music that is inspiring and helps to focus on one's Higher Self: mostly New Age and meditation, some classical, a little jazz, even some classic rock which isn't too loud. Whatever has rapport with my inner being or state. What gladdens me most is when I recognize the inner connection with other people and also the underlying natural balance and harmony that pervades all nature. I have been a vegetarian for about thirty four years now and also don't drink or smoke which were both given up at the same time soon after I began to get back on the spiritual path.)

The Best Poem Of George Krokos

Universal Freedom Is......

Freedom from hunger and freedom from pain
freedom from loss and so freedom from gain.
Freedom to give and freedom to share
freedom from want and that of despair.

Freedom to think and freedom to know
freedom to achieve and freedom to grow.
Freedom from bondage and freedom of liberation
freedom from ignorance and any unknown situation.

Freedom to come and freedom to leave
freedom to stay and freedom to conceive.
Freedom from struggle and freedom of ease
freedom to enjoy and the capacity to please.

Freedom from failure and freedom of success
freedom from denial and freedom of access.
Freedom from illusion and freedom of reality
freedom to become what we are in actuality.

Freedom to live and freedom to die
freedom to laugh and freedom to cry.
Freedom to speak and freedom to listen
freedom to act based on a wise decision.

Freedom from hate and freedom of love
freedom of below and freedom of above.
Freedom of the past and freedom of the present
freedom of the future and what it can represent.

Freedom from war and freedom of peace
freedom to begin and freedom to cease.
Freedom from sickness and freedom of health
freedom from poverty and mishandled wealth.

Freedom from wrong and freedom being right
freedom of the day and freedom of the night.
Freedom to choose and freedom to reject
freedom to imagine what there is to expect.

Freedom from lust and freedom from greed
freedom from anger and freedom from breed.
Freedom from jealousy and freedom from pride
freedom from within and freedom from outside.
Freedom of always not having anything to hide.

Freedom from space and also freedom from time
freedom from attachment and freedom from crime
Freedom to work and freedom to play
freedom to believe and freedom to pray.
Freedom to experience a rebirth someday.

Freedom from the body and freedom from the mind
freedom from the ego and freedom from being blind.
Freedom of transcendence being of the spiritual kind.

Universal freedom is eternal and infinite bliss
we should all therefore be able to realise this.
