I am Just as Human

I am Just as Human

Look at me,
Look at you.
You are Human.
I am too.

We may be different,
We may have different needs.
I deserve as much respect
Though we move or think at different speeds

Though I am disabled,
Though you are not,
I am just as Human
You may have forgot

About how to treat me
As equal, deserving
Of rights and respect
Of love and of caring,

I am not less,
You are not more -
We are both human
With gifts and flaws

I am just another person
I have needs and rights and dreams
I am truly fully human
With all that is and all that means.

So treat me not with less respect
Treat me not with hate or contempt
I deserve as much from life as you
We may be different but I'm human too.

I Came I Saw I Fell Over (Tony)

What...yes but...but..alright. Boo tells me that I'm raving again. I did not notice a difference, but I shall heed his word, nonetheless.

Mindwalker, Mindtalker

This is a poem that I wrote for Deb Viney's birthday in 2011

Mindwalker, Mindtalker   :f_rose:

We have so much fun
With the world of the mind
With music and books
Rambling talks of all kinds

From one born as a tiger
To one born a rabbit
Birth makes not our destiny
We form our own habits

As we rove through this life
Our thoughts range afar
From struggle and strife
To the glory of stars

From the saint and the rogue
For love of all kinds
Happy birthday dear Deb
You are oft’ on my mind.

Agapē

Some love is pure,
Cares not for itself,
Seeks only to cure,
To bring about health.

To give as much love
As its soul can contain,
Love shared is not halved,
Love should bring no pain.

Love of the soul,
With nothing of lust.
Healing its goal,
It's motives are just.

Though it can be mistaken,
And feared or adored,
This kind of love
Can encompass the world.

A Benediction

A Benediction

May we all be worthy spirits
Never causing hurt nor woe
Learn to rein the madness back
Permit our souls to grow.

Let us vanquish all the sorrows
We have cast on Earth, our friend.
Let us serve her 'til she calls us
To her bosom once again.

Never overweening arrogance
Nor domineering ways
Neither causing any suffering
To fall upon our days.

May our slumbers all be peaceful
And our wakings filled with joy
Let our faces shine with happiness
Life is for growth, for joy.

Let our laughter ring unfettered
And our souls resound with glee
And let every single one of us
Be what we ought to be.

We Have Found Our Voices

We Have Found Our Voices

Some have found their voices
Fighting this injustice
They speak for us who've lost our voice
To ring the bell of justice

We'll no more be silenced
We'll not be swept away
or forced to die in misery
We must have our say

We must make them hear us
Hear our song of truth
This rampant weed of prejudice
Must be killed at the root.

Tony - your poems are amazing.  Thank you for sharing them with us.
(I'm an obsessive problem-solver, so feel free to ignore any suggestions or solutions I offer, even if they sound terribly insistent.)

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me…

If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise you find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you
And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.
He said my place was ready, in heaven far above
And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
But as I turned and walked away a tear fell from my eye.
For all my life I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do.
It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays the good ones and the bad.
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,
I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized that this could never be,
For emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
When I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow
I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow.
When I walked through heavens gates I felt so much at home.
God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throne
He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you”
Today your life on earth has passed but here life starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last
And since each day is the same there’s no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful so trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.
You have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.
So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts with out me don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.
