FAITH

Trust me life.
I trust you.
If you don’t
I have no one
to turn to.
You’re all I’ve got,
the only one I know,
without you, I have
nowhere to go.

Glennie Llano

POEMS OF LIFE

People think we are put on
Earth for no apparent reason.
They are wrong. Life is not
meaningless. Life has meanings
that people don’t see. Life
does pay, but others don’t see,
there is a light, somewhere if
people have hope, we will find
it. Somehow. Life is good.

Perry Backman

BREAK AWAY

I try to break
away from that dream
I had. I try to just
come out of it. I wish
I can just break through
and away from that dream
everyday.

Gregory Kettrles

A GLASS OF MILK

A glass of milk,
Shining like the sky,
As white as the snow,
And cold like the breeze,
Goes down your throat,
Everything you thought,
Now is nothing.

Angel Monserrate

THE FALL

I fall through
a big hole
full of feelings
I am yelling
I look down
and it is
unlimited,
endless,
eternal,
boundless,
everlasting,
I keep falling
straight down
down and down
like a boulder
down a mountain
I look and see
the ground
coming
up to my feet
and I go right
through the
bottom
and the only hope
is to
live and fall,
fall and live.

Anthony Rivera

RIVER OF LOVE

As it flows, slowly
through the valley, in
the peaceful morning,
the animals come and
bathe in its waters and
drink some of its tasteful
cool, and then the river
flows away in the light,
as the warmth of the sun
reflects upon it!

Tammy Hogan

A WALK IN THE GARDEN

I walk into the garden
birds chirping in the air
and flowers blooming at my feet
so unlike the real world
where no one is at peace
here autumn leave fall
and the crisp breeze
sends birds flying about
and a shiver down my spine
only to enclose me in warmth
for here in the garden is peace

Jessica Contreras

SONG

a robin
sings by
a dead tree
it sings and
sings and
never stops

Nicole Hernandez

COOL WAVE

Cool wave
of sky
Splashing
above me

Weiyu Liu

JOIN TOGETHER

Join together all as one
That’s what the world should become
One big whole person

Angie Cosme

PEACE

I am at peace with the world,
Concentrating on the soft sounds of music,
Silence is all I can hear.

Francisco “Cisco” Rosado

COLORS

Another day to pray
to days of glory
days of suns
days of prayers
whispering to day or night
of splendid colors to shine

Michael Ruiz

LOVE OF NIGHT

Silent night the wind across
the open plains my eyes look at
the sky no one is here the wind
is in my face the love of the night
is in me

Karl Moody

GREAT PEACE

crystal love
open night
you sleep
your entire life
soft tender and free
you look more to future days
bold speed flies you to celebrate
our golden mystery
you were born to live in the world
called imagination
the young great spirit world
spurring our lives

Dennis Berrios

DOVES

white and golden
bursting light flying high
wings streaming through the heavens
driving to God with all his children
