What is real?

What is real?

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Many questions are asked. Few people can speak the truth.

"
          





                 
                 
















 Poetry, my dear friends,
                   is a sacred incarnation of a smile.
                   Poetry is a sigh that dries the tears.
                   Poetry is a spirit who dwells in the soul,
                   who nourishment is the heart,
                   who wine is affection.
                   Poetry that comes not in this form is a false messiah.
                                  Kahlil Gibran.

                                   Perfection

                     Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,
                     The philosophy which does not make me laugh
                     and the greatness which does not bow before children.
                                    Kahlil Gibran

                                   The unbeliever  (The Quran-surah)
                           1. Say: Unbelievers.
                           2. I do not serve him that which you serve.
                           3. Nor do you serve him whom I serve.
                           4. Nor am I going to serve that which you serve.
                           5. Nor are you going to serve him whom I serve.
                           6. You shall have your religion and I shall have my religion.
                                             Quran


                         What is real?

I watched the news on CNN. Men trying to confuse us with double talk.
We were warned of a time where the government would want to control all things.
Something should be easy to understand.

The separation of religion and Government.
The Federal and state government are not banks.
Religion is a private matter.
Giving money to banks and loan companies was a bad sign.
Do they give all the poor men and woman who lost their homes and businesses a low interest loan too? No they did not.
   
If you study real common sense. If you know history. New Testament and Quran are based on love and forgiveness. Man's change the words to profit the world of money and powerful nations.

Violence bring hate. Death bring more death. Blood of father's will follow into the son's and daughter's. Create wall of new hate and desire for revenge never to end. 

Today few places are not touched by war.
War blocked out the real problems.
The Gulf of Mexico was killed off with oil.
Nuclear waste dumped into the Asia seas.
30 million will died of starvation this year in Africa. 

Brother's are killing brother's in all parts of this world.
Religion is not the problem.
Hate and foolishness is the problem.
A bomb exploded in the USA.
Killed men/woman and children in Oklahoma city.
A bomb exploded in Baghdad open market killing innocent shoppers.
Children in the kindergarten in the USA are learning to take cover if
there is a attack.
Did we lose our minds? When did the world fall on the path of hate and destruction?

A eye for a eye world will end with no winners.
Time to lock-up all the world leaders in a room.
Like the days of Unions.
Can't come out till all problems are fixed.
The country with internal struggle must gather the men and woman of wisdom.
Have peace talks and quit killing their brother's and sister's.
Must stop the blood.

Brother's must stop killing their fellow country men and women.
Powerful nations need to sent Soldiers with food and water to the starving nations.
I'm Ojibwa/Mexican.

I believe will take the circle of life to find peace.
Need all races to demand peace and end to war.
Pollution and destruction of this planet must stop.
It won't matter if you are a Muslim, Christian or a believer of nothing.
A nuclear weapon will put all of us on the path of no return.

I pray the madness must end.
For the sake of the children everywhere.
No-one want their babies to die.
We must change direction and allow our children to grow-up without fear and great hope.
 
Poet and writers must lead the way. Need to hear voices strong and loud. Someone must lead this world from a destiny of pain and destruction.

(Paraphrases)

Christianity: Love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Islam: Hurt no one..that no one would hurt you
Buddism: Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful
Confucianism: Seek to be in harmony with all your neighbors.
Judaism: That which is hateful to you...do not do to your neighbor

Its amazing how we pick and choose the scriptures that "justify" the way we mistreat each other. You spoke words that the world desperately needs to hear right now.

You'd make a great leader in this endeavour. Your words are powerful and ring true. If only there could be a way to make the world leaders listen to you.

I am just SPEECHLESS!! I go numb as I was going through the whole of it,....it has such depth and truth in it...which only few of us have the guts to confess. I love the very first part of this whole where you introduced the relevance of poem and confession and tried to reconcileate. An amazing style of using imageries. Only the word KAHLIL GIBRAN I din understand. I guess its Islamic word. an applause that you gave it such a good try and linked your readers to it.

This is beautifully put, like writers of all kinds are part of a noble cause. Love this!
