I wanna be free
I wanna be free from thew racism
the discrimination and the violation
of my rights
i wanna be eliminated from the people
who just sit back and watch our society’s
principles, morals and values deteriorating
i wanna be excluded from the people
who crucify other people’s beliefs, thoughts and feelings
i wanna be able to practise my
religion, my traditions and cultural beliefs
with freedom
i refuse to associate myself with
tendencies and mentalities of our screwed
up society
my aim is to serve humanity and to devote
my efforts and endeavours to the good
and betterment of all mankind

Go and open the book

Go and open the book by Maryam Fredericks

Go and open the book
Maybe inside there’s
A car, or a dinosaur,
A whole new nation
Just use your imagination

Go and open the book
Maybe you’ll find a forgotten
Bookmarker, a
Poem, an answer to
That question

Go and open the book
There’s a new world
That awaits

Go and open the book
Even if the cover’s
Old or the
Pages are yellow, even

If the English is terrible
The handwriting
Might be legible

Go and open the book

At least
You’ll know
What’s inside

Why are you bullying me?

WHY ARE YOU BULLYING ME?

I wake up with fear

Knowing you’re near

I climb out of bed

My face blood red

I couldn’t sleep last night

The only thing left to do was write

So I wrote this poem

Wanting to show you

How you ruined

my peace of mind,

my happiness, calmness

and ability to be kind

Why do you do this?

Are you hurting inside?

Is there someone you miss?

Or do you just like taking away my shine?

Maybe you need help

Someone to sympathise

a loving hand, a kind word

a little compromise

Talk to someone

Let your feelings show

you might be surprised

by how much we know

POETRY

Poetry is a chapter in this big book of life

we all play a part in

It is the art of putting together words

to form a piece of emotional writing

 

Poetry is a part of one’s soul

It is the enhancement of one’s

thoughts, attitudes and feelings

 

Poetry is about releasing your tragedies and catastrophes

by putting your pen in motion

Its about liberating your ink

To put each and every emotion on paper

 

Poetry is sharing a part of you

with the universe

Its about embracing your inner beauty

by expressing it through the art of writing

 

When i write a poem

i am giving you a part of me

For my poems come straight from the heart

GLOBAL WARMING

Oh! Oh! Global warming

You are everybody’s fear

and problem.

Oh! Oh! Let the space

take care of nature,

take care of our enviroment

I fear you because you

suffocate my space.

I fear you because you

make my space conjested.

I fear you because you

polluted my space.

My space, my space is no

longer going to give me oxygen.

You scary environment

around my space.

You brought confusion to the

climate.

To my country and to the world

Let’s find a solution to save our

planet.

The tune lingers on

THE TUNE LINGERS ON

The song that I heard was one I could not sing

No words no music

Only the silent tune kept ringing in my ears

Rivers glow water rush

Into the ocean

Waves block their entrance

The echo the faint sound

Relayed by the wind

No words no music

Only the silent tune kept ringing in my ears

Is it preferable to be deaf

but you can hear

or to be blind

that you can see

As day breaks to dawn

To set in the evening shadows

The breeze in the wind

Carries the song

The tune the melody

heats a broken heart and soothes a troubled soul

No words no music

Only the silent tune kept ringing in my ears

and yet…

THE TUNE LINGERS ON
