The Homeless Indigent

silePoem:

His soul has lost its bearings;
He moves around as if propelled
Not by his own mental compass
But driven through suffering
And unrelenting misery.

He cries silently and painfully
In the fading light of his existence,
Bowed to the ridiculing pleasure
Of dereliction and surrender
On the sidewalks of despair,

Past conveniences of dignity and pride,
Across society’s withering desert
Of indifference, bleeding within himself,
As he keeps walking, not knowing
Where he is going.

The world outside of himself
Seems to be a planet of aliens
There are some that pass him by
Handing him what doesn’t help,
What doesn’t ease his unceasing pain.

What doesn’t appease his hunger;
Restore his dignity, his love of life,
His birthright, his smothered dreams,
His lost directions, his home, his pride,
The principles of human kindness.

There are moments when he remembers
The things he had loved most,
Things that he cannot love again;
For love itself seems ill-defined,
And life a nightmare of confusion.

What We Can Do For Our Body

There is no escaping the fact that we ought to discipline our palate by adhering to a diet that can help reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure as follows:

1) Eat fruits and vegetables, reduce the intake of sodium, begin walking, add beans to salad, and include oatmeal for breakfast.

2) Replace white bread with whole wheat bread that is loaded with fiber.

3) Abstain from foods, such as refined white flour, hydrogenated fats and excessive sugar. Start strategizing by eating fresh veggies, soy foods, fresh fruits, nuts, lean beef, chicken and fish.

4) Start exercising routinely and seriously.

5) Abstain from eating a lot of cakes and pieces of chocolates that do not contribute to our good health.

6) Begin walking more often in order to keep us within an acceptable body weight.

The temptation to please our palate with foods that might keep us on the dark side of life can do us a great deal of harm. We should think of life as a piece of land that needs to be cultivated by fertilizing its soil in order to yield the good crops that it can yield. Similarly, our body should likewise be cultivated to allow our organs to function normally and let it work without any interruption.

Past, Present, Future

Poem:

The Past knows no “abortion,”
When pregnant with sweet Time,
Giving birth to the Present,
Unblemished and sublime –

The Present, mimicking the past,
In its own time and space
Gets pregnant with the future,
With confidence and grace.

The Future unpredictable,
Depends on how we view it
From the standpoint of the Present
And what it must inherit.

My Ship Of Hope

Poem

My ship of hope is far from port
Where sweet success awaits me,
Where eager souls can never quit,
Forever glad and free!

My mind is firmly set upon
The compass and the rudder,
My heart keeps fluttering, but my soul
Shall never, never shudder.

No howling wind, nor billows wild
Shall make me yearn for shore
From where my ship of hope had left
For the reason to explore!

Staunch members of the crew on board –
Faith, Confidence, Desire –
These be the sources of my hope
That help me and inspire.

And when my ship arrives at
Its final port of call,
I’ll soon unload the cargo of
My efforts, all in all

The Need To Adhere To A Firm Foreign Policy

What would you do if your enemy is bent on killing you? The answer should be obvious: You either try to kill him or try to get rid of him by means of another method that you deem fit. Any kind of foreign policy that reflects weakness or apathy might, in the long run, make it easier for those that are waiting to hurt you when you least expect it.

It is well-known that life on earth was structured on a premise by which human beings cannot abide in a peaceful relationship indefinitely, since the beginning of time. War and slavery were always the obstacles that stood in the way of dignity and peace. These two aspects of life on earth continues to linger to this day and age, regardless of how hard we try to achieve a lasting peace, which makes it all the more imperative that our foreign policy should never vacillate but remain firm, while it remains slanted toward an equality of purpose that can help promote a fair exchange of views in order to maintain the status quo.

Our foreign policy must necessarily be attuned to letting those that oppose us know that any kind of threat, direct or indirect, would be met with a justified retaliation. By so doing, we do not merely help ourselves in the process but also our allies that count on our leadership and knowhow.

Backache: Problem – Relief

Back problems are generally attributed to pushing, twisting, bending, lifting, punching, pulling and straining. According to statistics, four out of five Americans experience such a problem at some point in their lives. Backaches can be either acute or chronic.

How To Obtain Relief:

Get off your feet and get some bed rest.

The majority of those that experience backache do not consider exercise to be beneficial, such as l) press-up or half a push-up; 2) swimming; 3) refraining from lounging too long. Exercise is highly recommended.

Some backaches, considered to be chronic, might need a doctor’s care, such as l) backaches
that happen for no obvious reason; 2) backaches with symptoms, such as fever, stomach cramps, chest pain, or difficulty breathing; 3) persistent pain that defies relief; 4) when it radiates down to your knee or foot.

There are occasions when your car seat might be uncomfortable, each time you buckle up. Choose a car seat that is equipped with adjustable lumber support.

There are those that might be susceptible to backaches permanently. Susceptibility can be chronic and calls for frequent pain relievers, such as aspirin and ibuprofen that might help to allay the pain temporarily.

The Homeless Indigent

Poem:

His soul has lost its bearings,
As he keeps moving as if propelled
Not by his own mental compass
But driven by the merciless wind
Of misery and wretchedness.
He cries out silently and painfully
In his fading light of existence,
Bowed to the ridiculing pleasure
Of dereliction and surrender
On the cruel paths of lovelessness,
Past valleys of dignity and pride,
Across society’s withering desert
Of indifference, weak and bleeding
Within himself, dreamless, surrendered
To his own failure.

The world outside of himself seems
But a planet of aliens, as he keeps
Moving, unconsciously forever.
