    One the deepest poems you will ever hear.

    "Lost Count: A Love Story" is about the violence in Chicago.

    Our children are killing our children and we need PEACE.


  2. mylifeinheartbeats:

    If my kisses

    could heal your bruises

    I would kiss you until

    my lips were bruised

    If my lips could

    seal your wounds

    I would kiss you until

    they were bloody

    And if my blood

    could fade your scars

    there would be none

    left in my body.

  7. "Now your gone away from me- days seem long & nights I cant sleep.
    They took your life, in a blink of an eye.
    I didnt get a chance to even say good-bye.
    The violence, the rage,the unexplained hate!
    And now there’s revenge,how much would it take?
    back & fourth, & over again,
    it’s a never ending violent game, until your life is spent.
    Now sits your mother just like me,
    so confused, angry,& so sad,as she writes with a pen & a steno pad…Now your gone away from me."

    Poem Entry.

    Mexico Celebrates Día de Muertos

    To view photos and videos from those celebrations, visit the Patzcuaro, Michoacan, Mexico and Oaxaca, Mexico location pages or browse the #DíadeMuertos hashtag.

    Every year from October 31 to November 2, Mexicans celebrate Día de Muertos or the Day of the Dead. Friends and family gather to remember, celebrate and pray for their loved ones who have passed. Celebrants build altars called ofrendas for the deceased using calaveras (sugar skulls), marigolds and the favorite foods, beverages and possessions of the departed. The streets near cemeteries are also filled with parades and decorations.

    Though first observed in Mexico, today Día de Muertos is observed around the world, and Instagrammers are there capturing the celebrations.

  13. "

    Precious moments ticking by
    Thinking how, where, when and why

    The flow and pounding

    Unfamiliar to me

    Is this a dream

    Or reality?

    Memories flashing

    Now time stand still

    I hear him whisper

    "Have strength and will"

    His wings expand

    He smiles; I nod

    The time has come

    For him to be with God.

    — Another poem from the VIOLENCE poetry contest. My heart is soaring. It’s not too late to enter! NOV. 30th deadline!
  14. "A lonely mother gazing out of her window
    Staring at a son that she just can’t touch
    If at any time he’s in a jam
    She’ll be by his side
    But he doesn’t realize he hurts her so much
    But all the praying just ain’t helping
    At all ‘cause he can’t seem to keep
    His self out of trouble
    So he goes out and he makes his money
    The best way he knows how
    Another body laying cold in the gutter”
