I am not “Pre-Tending”

I am preempting 

I do not pretend to be a scholar 

I do not pretend to be a star 

I write with my heart 

I cry, with my art

My body broken

My soul awaken

I express my surprise 

I admire the sunrise 

I tell the story of a human journey 

Thrifty, loving, at times happy 

Upset by humanity and it’s idiocy 

Praying.. for peace and harmony 

Imploring.. for the end of tyranny 

Asking, for fairness in diplomacy 

Could we all live in harmony 

Stop, all these monstrous atrocities

Greed is sad

Hate is bad 

The earth is a vessel 

Our hearts wrestle 

Between good and evil  

Distorting beauty in people 

Differences sorted and disliked

Appreciating life, is all right 

Only to those who can separate 

Darkness from the light 

In His name, be humble 

It’s ok to stumble 

Lift your head up, high 

Look out and admire 

This beautiful creation 

Nature and it’s ambition 

See the nectar of flowers 

The birds and their colors 

The enticing smells 

The light in those who are blind 

The beating heart in those you dislike 

Feel the wind, hear the rain 

Take away their pain 

Be brave, sing praise 

I do not pretend to be a scholar 

I just love my fellows and our Father 

I live my journey, trying to enlighten 

In our times, the sky, as been darkened

Stronger 

Together 

Look up, feel the love, be blessed 

Please, dance, sing and pray

.. and, Have a magical day
