Woman, let me demystify you,
So I can see why I love you
Let me search:
A beautiful Sunday afternoon
Amid the estival breeze of a silent moon
You and I did enjoy a few scoops
Of our favorite dessert; oops, oops
Witnessing the blood baths, the massacre
Of God’s people, children’s bodies everywhere,
And octogenarians expire slowly and quietly in horror.
The undistorted and the vivid images of terror,
(Dedicated to you, my Brothers and Sisters)
Crows diving in a row,
Return of the unfriendly bees,
Michael Jackson, the Thriller, Died
Life is unfair
To those who dare
Your way of gazing at me
Your kisses sting me
Our beautiful children are dying
In Africa, Europe, the Middle East
Asia, the Americas,
Yellow flower, grieving flower, pale flower,
You were burnt by the sun and the hot rain.
Ripe flower, matured flower, immaculate flower,
You've nevertheless kept your phenomenal beauty sane.
Money is the root of all evil,
Money was blessed by the devil,
Money, money can kill,
Money can cheat, steal…
The end of anything comes rather easy,
Time is not like a clock, time is freaky.
It's a phenomenon
It's an oxymoron
She takes us wherever she wants
Whenever she wants.
Failing is hurtful,
Falling is painful,
But getting up or climbing back up,
To the mountains, is wonderful.
The Last Winter Storm
Every year, at the scheduled arrival of March,
Mother Nature became seasonally enraged,
Maman, Maman, tu étais la première femme
A me combler de baisers le jour de mon enfance.
La première amoureuse qui a décoré mon âme
De tendresse, de sincérité et de bienfaisance.
There is total silence
No offense, no defense
There are no mops
Wall Street stock prices have plummeted next to nothing,
Our 401k,403b and 457 plans have lost more that half of their values.
The wars have exhausted our resources; no more fancy menus.
Downtown is like a ghost town, everybody is scared; nobody is shopping.

I am from Earth and I am a Libra. My birth year is irrelevant; I will therefore get old when I expire.

Pretty soon, I must step away from this site for a while as I need to concentrate on my literary career. I will not pay my daily visit to this wonderful niche, and I expect to fight all temptations. I must admit that I enjoyed many of your poems and I hope that the feelings are mutual. I love you all. Peace & Love, Paix & Amour, Lape & Lanmou, Paz Y Amor....)
It Is Your Smile…
Woman, let me demystify you,
So I can see why I love you
Let me search:
The curves, the preserves,
The gardens and the reserves,
So I can understand
Why every second
That you flash in my memory,
The chemical formula changes in my body.
You're safe and sound.
Let me examine you from head to toes:
Touch your nose,
Cover your cheeks,
Do some tricks,
Try to fake it,
Walk, run, stop and sit.
Oh! I'm beginning to see:
It is your smile
That drives me crazy;
It is your smile
That makes me feel so good.
Oh! My soul
Is engaged in a chaotic feud;
I wonder if you are the divine doll
That I dreamt of the other night.
You are out of sight.
Your smile drives me crazy,
Every day and every night,
When I am lonely,
When the sky is gloomy or bright
And when you gaze at me.
Love is a selfish step-mother.
Love is not dead, but is alive, and swimming in the sea of presumptive guesstimate and bombastic false hope.
Who is that? What is that? Love with a multi-faceted images and with multiple definitions, expressions and aspirations!
Violence, instead of tolerance, and ignorance go, hands in hands, in Ferguson. When will we learn from century old nonsense that intolerance is the worst form of violence?
Since the small racists are innumerable, sometimes we need the big racists to attack or destroy the small racists, in order to end racism everywhere. As a matter of fact, the big racists will inevitably taste and swallow their own medicine. This is the big fish, small fish theory. Remember George Corley Wallace Jr., the former Governor of Alabama, during the Civil Rights Movement of the 60'S.
In every good thing, great sentence, there is always a but.
The truth is always brief and blunt. The truth requires no metaphysical explanation, no grandiloquent exegesis, on the other hand lies do require all sorts of extenuating, creative or imaginative jargons.
Controversies can only improve things, that's why America is so great.
The best way, to defeat the critics, The protagonists or the enemies, Is not to act crazy or to recede, However, the logical thing to do is To be triumphal and to succeed.
If you use the brain in your head, you will not discriminate If you really use the heart in your chest, you will elevate Every body to a higher level You will love every body with zeal.
If you use the brain in your head, you will not discriminate If you really use the heart in your chest, you will elevate Every body to a higher level You will love every body with the same zeal.
Blame the clouds for darkness, not the sun It is always sunny in my heart.
Why do dogs bark so loud when they see other dogs? Because dogs hate their shadow, dogs are selfish. They fear the unknown, thus they hate other dogs.
Dictators are like dogs, they fear the unknown and people who behave like them. At the end of the day, they really hate themselves in a selfish way.
Being in a coma is suffering beyond belief, because the whole body is numb and the spirit is on pause, If you're blessed and lucky to regain consciousness Your body is oblivious to the pain or the suffering This is how God gives some of us a second chance.
Failure is solely a very small chapter of the book.
Of course, God created everyone in a special way, but not everyone is special.
They blame ignorance for everything, yet they refuse to be called: ignorant.
When you are afraid to speak, you unknowingly empower the enemy.
When you write, speak out or express yourself, the enemy is uncomfortable, scared and confused. By Hebert Logerie
Many of us don't realize that we came on earth with nothing and we will leave (if we're lucky) wearing a simple outfit. We will leave behind everything.
Love is never the animal or the beast we would like to dream of. Love is full of good and bad surprises. Hébert Logerie
A language is difficult when it is not your native tongue or maternal jargon. Hébert Logerie
Whoever says that justice is blind is really blind, because justice is not based on the truth, logics or common sense. If you want proof, just look around with or without a microscope.
A woman, who left you, eventually will do something crazy for you to leave her.
A great soldier or a great warrior watches friendly and unfriendly fires. Both kill.
A millionaire or a billionaire is guilty of something: GREED or EXCESS GREED. Hebert Logerie
A warning to all Poets: jail rhymes with hell and prison does not rhyme with heaven.
A society with corrupt judges will never be safe.
Corruption is a cancer, a bad disease which can poison or destroy all types of ideologies or wishful thoughts.
A country with a brutal police force will always be corrupt and unsafe. Hebert Logerie
A good morning Is the best thing A good person Can wish to friend A neighbor Or a stranger. Hebert Logerie
A good person Always finds something To give to someone, Which, in return, brings Back countless blessings. Hebert Logerie
Fight for Peace and Justice, and you will be shocked or surprised who the enemies of this society are.
A smart bird does not fly in the rain, because moisture cannot defy gravity. Hebert Logerie
If you think you have problems, just listen to your friends and your neighbors.
Wisdom and bias are like oil and water; they don't mix.
A dictator or a bad president is surrounded or imbued in fear. A bad leader is fearless in the morning and fearful of his own people at night. Sometimes, a dictator knows no difference between day and night. Hebert Logerie
Big heads do not equate big ideas.
We can write the date, but there's no guarantee that we'll see the time.
Life is short like a fart; release it and don't hold it.
If you follow a fool too close, you'll fall in a pool, a well or a deep hole without realizing it.
You want to be well, not in a well, even the turtles wail and yell to get out of this man made hell.
As long as there is hope, success is around the block, at the corner, in the vicinity.
This is absolutely shameful, because the racists know nothing about racism, bias, bigotry and freedom of speech.
Love breeds patience and tolerance. When one is in love, one has a lot more patience.
Reconciliation is when two, three or more parties say they are sorry and mean it. Everybody makes mistakes, nobody is flawless. Only God is perfect.
Solely sleazy snakes will say that systemic racism has nothing to do with slavery.
Slavery is diabolic. It is human exploitation and suffering. Its straits and vestiges sting, stain and slay for several generations.
A freeholder is a fancy name for freeloader in this political environment.
