Untitled (or “I Remember My Life”)

I remember my life of Eden.

In my first few years, something akin to freedom.

And when they caught up with her one day

I was thrown away just to be saved

Imprisoned, she’s gone

Liberated, I seem.

Then, I was seven, and all alone.

I could hunt, and kill, and gather food

But that was all. I barely knew how

To speak. Not that I had anyone

With whom to do so with; was alone.

Weep not for I am far better now.

It was some years before I found one

With whom I could speak, but I did not

Know her language and she would run off

And hide from me. She was a spirit.

She liv’d of the water, and in it.

She was the only one who would let

Me see her. She, once we were friends, taught

Me her language. The language

Of Däwngale and her children.

Now I speak four of her languages. Mine,

Elken. His, N’Tariel. Solune,

And hers, the language of Nixies.

We learned from each other and taught

All we knew. She said we would be sep-

Arated in some years, forever. She

Was wrong, but she was worried always.

Years pass’d and I bled into womanhood.

It was and it is an annoyance.

Gift from the mother to the daughter

To be a mother and enter her—

Enter her eternity. To fill the voids.

This I would do much later.

It was around this time I started

To explore the north woods. I went south

And almost got taken in by a

Tribe, caught in the age of stones. I left.

I would not return for many years.

I explor’d and avoided all those

Who could speak but were not spirits. But

There was a tenacious boy who saw

Me. He enter’d the death trance, I saw.

He had to know me, he said. I ran

As far away as I could. I hid

For many weeks. And the terrible

Mother Däwngale had a plan for me.

My time was near, and she said “re-turn.”

I did not listen. The Nixies laugh’d,

And I wept. I enter’d the death trance.

I too would know him, I decided.

I returned to the south but he was

Gone.

I am to blame, I pray’d I ask’d Him.

And I grieved and I slept there on Earth.

And I woke and he was there I saw.

I woke and looked through the trees I saw.

Daniel Triumph.

I may write more, in time.

Anyone who can guess the narrator’s name get’s props.

P.S. Holy hell does verse do wonders. I was trying to figure out who wrote this. It was me, a week ago. Try it!

We are the Horseman

I met a man in 1990,
He told me,
“Next thing you know,
They take my thoughts away.
I know what I said,
now I must scream of the overdose
And the lack of mercy killings”
We met again in 1984,
I met Big Brother for the first time

A document was drafted, he said,
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Its name was,
The First Amendment.

I met a man in 2016,
He told me that Bush did 9/11.
What do I care?
I am not American.

I met a man in 2018,
He told me to fear hate speech legislation.
Why should I?
Do not hate.

I met a man in 2018,
He told me,
THIS SHARE GOES AGAINST OUR COMMUNITY STANDARDS ON HATE SPEECH
Hate Speech 1.PNG
No longer are we allowed to say,
Jews are wack,
Or post nice videos—

Dating Advice: You Wont Hear From Anyone Else!

https://youtu.be/rdhnP7MvvWo

Okay Facebook, let’s run the social science experiment.
“Catholics are wack!”
Nothing.
I dare not try to test Islam next.
Facebook holds a double standard.
Oh, and by the way, we are all wack.
Wack is too stupid, too ironic a word to be HATE SPEECH.
Facebook, you’re next!

I met a man in 2007,
He told me,
“Novus Ordo Seclorum,” “Annuit Coeptis!”
I told him I don’t know Latin,
He said, “keep an eye on the eye on the dollar bill.”
I don’t have any American dollars.

I met a man in 2007,
He said,
“NATO invaded Yugoslavia to end ethnic cleansing, there was no U.N.
The U.S. invaded Afghanistan after 9/11, there was no U.N.
Saddam Hussein violated seventeen U.N. resolutions
The U.N. was asked to join the war in Iraq
The U.S. invaded, there was no U.N.
Libya bombed a discotheque in Berlin killing Americans, there was no U.N.
And Iran funds Hamas and attacked the U.S. in the seventies, there was no U.N.
Facing war without end, looking into the future, there was no more U.N.”
I said I don’t care,
He said,
“Disengage their minds, sabotage their health
Promote sex, and war, and violence in the kindergartens
Blame the parents and teachers; it’s their fault; “Annuit Coeptis”
Attack the church dynamic, attack the family
Keep the public undisciplined till nothing left is sacred, and
The “have-nots” get hooked and have to go to the “haves” just to cop a fix”

I met a man in my fourth semester,
He was my English professor,
He said,
“Magic Realism came about as a way to publish censored ideas under oppressive, censoring governments.”
He gave me a book.
One Hundred Years of Solitude.
I don’t know what to say about it.

I met a man in 2018,
He said,
THIS ACCOUNT HAS BEEN TERMINATED FOR VIOLATING YOUTUBE’S COMMUNITY GUIDELINES.
Hate Speech 2I said,
“Don’t you guys have a first amendment or something?”
He said,
“That only covers government censorship of the press.”
I said,
“According to CNN, “The $6.3 trillion debt binge: American companies have never owed this much”
And then I sourced it.
https://money.cnn.com/2018/07/01/investing/stocks-week-ahead-debt-bubble/index.html)
He nodded, manically.
“The government owes American corporations a few blind eyes.
The price has been paid.
It is in the billions.
The best way for the new authoritarian
dictators to circumvent American rights
is by circumventing the law.”
I laughed. This man has historically been wrong,
about nearly everything.

“YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT,
So shut your mouth!
Don’t mention the broken promises and lies of hope and change!”
Still I feel nervous,
Because, like Catholics, and all the rest of us,
Jews are wack,
But Facebook won’t let me say it.
Here is a joke from the Tanakh.
1 And when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and she said unto Jacob: ‘Give me children, or else I die.’ 2 And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel; and he said: ‘Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?’
Is that allowed?
I don’t know anymore.

I can’t decide,
Is that another conspiracy?
Or is that big brother
In his infancy?

We are the horsemen.

I met a man in 2016,
He was my Communications professor.
He said,
“Before the telegraph,
The news moved at the speed of horsemen.”
I suddenly understood the old saying,
And I ask that you do the same,
Whether you be a citizen, corporation, bureaucracy, or government,
Don’t shoot the messenger.
Even if he is wrong, even if he is the manifestation
Of HATE SPEECH on earth.

Because if our equine friends fall,
If the doors to the technological revolution close,
If our telegraphs are taken away by
The private manufacturers,
Then it will fall
To us

To be horseman.

The First of Many

After my previous “avant-garde” poetic endeavour, I figured I’d share another one. This is, of course, dedicated to the person I wrote it for.

***

“I feel it only necessary to preface a work such as this with a quote.” – [Name Removed]

[Waves] [Close our eyes and count slow,] (Falling Up) (Falling Up)

[In this moment things are getting dangerous.

Oh no.

I can’t find my way.

All these things that left me in their waiting.

If you run faster, you’ll forget.] (Falling Up)

You TAKE A LIFE, OUA– –AOH!] (Falling up)

 

[Now my heart is shaking and terrified,

But some how you might rescue me.] (Falling Up)

[But you will break your back fighting,

Before you let them break your pride.] (Megadeth)

[Only yesterday
they told me you were gone.

All these normal people,
will I find another one?

I said I need you, does that make me wrong?

Am I a weak man, are you feeling strong?

My heart was blackened, it’s bloody red

A hole in my heart, a hole in my ––––!

I forgot you said,
“ONE DAY YOU’LL WALK ALONE…”

— —

Who will help me up?

Where’s the helping hand?

Will you turn on me?

Is this my final stand?] (Megadeth)

Legs will break like shattering glass] (Falling Up)

An outstretched hand,

Leave in my sutures.

And this is where I fall.

I step up to the enemy

And rise from where I crawled.] (Halford)

 

[This could be all the heaven you need

Life can be wicked, mean and cold

Could this be the end of your living terror?

Come with me, and I’ll train your soul …

Just one thing that I want you to know] (Megadeth)

You can leave, am I a fallen fool?

Come with me, you’ll know what it’s for,
Soon enough—*chokes*

So far in debt, you’re struggling to survive—] (Megadeth)

gods simply to appear worthy of it?] (Nietzsche)

Down in my seat of judgement / Gavel’s bang, uphold the law

Up on my soapbox, a leader / Out to change the world

Down in my pulpit as the holier- / than-thou-could-be-messenger of God!

… Holy Wars.] (Megadeth)

[I am, I am really afraid,] (Falling Up)

don’t mean I ain’t Thinkin’ it,] (Megadeth)

[But maybe it’s meant to be this way, {rough},

‘Cause we are the young in love.

I am, I am really afraid,

But I am your protector!

You kno-ow,

You’ll be never alone again…] (Falling Up)

[Father, Healer, Deliver me from broken love.

Stay here, Closer, Let me hear your voice of love.

Saviour, Redeemer, Bring me to this place of peace.] (Falling Up)

[The human charioteer drives his in a pair;

The driving of them of necessarily

[Can you hear my calling?] (Fractal Cypher)

[Lost in a room of mirrors,

There’s only one way out.] (Halford)

Bright city lights would glow

[But don’t say a word.] (Ellie Goulding)

 

[In some magnetic trance

Our beating hearts would dance

And crash down from afar.

Oh how strange fate is.

Never dreamed of this,

Fever—You set my soul on fire,

Fever—You fill me with desire,] (Judas Priest)

Fever—[I’m more alive I’ve ever been] (Ellie Goulding)

FEVER—[I WANNA BE THE KING!] (Megadeth)

[—So now I give you all my sin

 

I’ve chosen you; I’ve chosen you—

I will leave your words behind now.] (Ellie Goulding)

Lost in this nightmare.] (Far From Reality)

You hesitate, I don’t care

Here I am, for I have come—

[Louder than an atom bomb {and}

Brighter than a thousand suns!] (Judas Priest)

 

So [Like a good old-fashioned beating

Within inches of your life;] (Megadeth)

They won’t know what to do,] (Megadeth)

Stronger free and brave] (Judas Priest)

Life ends when we feel no pain—

—Until then, we strive—

Choked that the beginning—

[You exhaust me in the most beautiful way.

You inspire me at my most terrific

And at my most degenerate.] (To be Continued)

[Now I know that I’m alive,

All the loneliness is filled

By you, inside] (Falling Up)

(Stay) Listen to

All my dreams, love that lasts, pain that heals

And take, take your time

But move so fast, ’cause hearts move on—

This ti-i-i-ime it means something

(Dreams will fall, love will spill)
This ti-i-i-ime it means—

*guitar bridge*
THIS TIME.] (Falling Up)

 

[Seems this house is bursting at the seams.

Oh no.

Is it fine to say I’m ready to believe?

Stay here,

Closer.] (Falling Up)

[My life is everything

That feeds my thirst

That causes sin

My wants are all I care

No shame and guilt,

there’s nothing there] (Megadeth)

[My heart, it hurts, ‘Cause it never catches its breath

—I’m still staying when I should have left

Come to where the waters meet the shore—I’ll be there

And I will stay, leaving you] (Falling Up)

[Flashing sharp, don’t be afraid,] (Falling Up)

[In this moment things are getting dangerous,] (Falling Up)

[Against your heart; don’t be afraid!] (Falling Up)
