You are, unending trail, living footsteps of your ancestry. So walk on and leave your visible prints on the soft and dry sands of life. Carve your name in symbols of your totems on the stratified rocks of your own existence. Paint your breath on the barks of the tree of life and head on. String your lamentations into songs and poems of memories. Step hard on those sole splitting thorns, let them split your flesh, lick a fingertip of your blood as it oozes into the soils that brought you forth. Spit at the disgrace of the ones who refuse life. You are a long, visible trail...that the storms and whirlwinds of life can never bury. The ebbs of troubled waters cannot wash your name away. And you cannot be blanketed under the corrupted veil of darkness. You are the fountain of light. Trail on! © JahArt Kushite

My Pen Speaks Poetry My pen speaks poetry Words of deep passion and feelings Confessions and goals It is an unburdening of my heart, mind and soul To write out all my frustrations Express the beauty I see everyday My pen speaks poetry In its own special way.

LET US BUILD A BRIDGE Let us join hands together and make A solid bridge of peace and love, To stem the tide of hate currents, Churning the silently-flowing, calm And contended, river of life. Let us hold hands jointly and firmly, To make this world a safe habitat Worth - living, for the distraught humanity, Where the survival of human values, Remains an agenda of utmost importance, For the ruling classes of the countries World over; Let us show solidarity in times of Crisis, and in protecting our poor and Downtrodden brethren; let us prove To be the eternal torchbearers of good Values which sustain the human race. Let us bridge the gap of every kind, Mankind is waiting for our response! © Rakesh Chandra
