A World of Freedom

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Where we can think without persecution;
Where society can breathe the truth;
Where we don't have to fog the glass;
showing only what we want them to see.
Where little girls and boys can go outside at night, not scared of what lurks in the shadows:
Where anyone of any identification can fulfill their dreams;
Where there is a constant flow of imagination and curiosity that is not shot down by our nations;
So pray that this can be a...

World #276

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

A World To Strive For? Then surely it is a world that Accepts Peace.

The water in World #276 is clean, fresh and cool.
The forms that dwell there, though not half-way resembling the species dubbed Human, are intelligent.
The Pipisky lack social structure, but seem content. 
The surrounding landscape is filled with livid green plants World #3 had destroyed.
The Humans swear they will look after this one; for once I lack doubt.
The Future Generations seem more tolerant...

Unify

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

when i close my eyes
i see a world barren of strife
no longer sharpening its blade
to stab and twist its glossy knife

when i look up high
i see no gray-toned fumes pass by
i bask in the sun's glowing smile
i sit and relax a tiny while

when i lie to go to sleep
i revel in my company
i can think, i can speak
isn't that what living really means?

when i glance outside

The Past of Today is the Future

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

as the sun hoists the top of ice mounds
as the monarchs torrent through the breeze
as the thin children sleep voracious bellies
as the palms clasp in artful tethers
as the salvo surrenders to births of carols
as the jungle prances a bustling zoo
as we are free as they are free as the air all breathe

All the same

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Every corner of our home 
has people and pain 
Each experience unique 
and somehow the same 
All seeking to be individuals 
with nothing new to proclaim 
You scream and shout yet it falls on ignorant ears
that presume they’ve heard it all before 
and they have 
but they didn't listen the first time 
A hundred years gone by 
the same people still cry 
for the same things 
you and I already have 
same same same 
because he, her, you, or...

Like the child: family times.

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Like the child:


On the face of earth are people of different ages, indeed five: the old known to be sage, the young men and women known to be caring, the youthful boys and girls known to be courageous and daring, and the old children who are always curious.

And then, here comes the fascinating ones: the young children. To the best of all, they are lovely; who would stand not to give a smile to those sweet faces. Ever...

Everything now.

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Everywhere is nowhere, 
a stream, a bridge...
cloud filled skies and warm rain;
The patter filling my mind,
fueling my senses.
The stars strung like fairy lights 
across the lonely night sky.

A dystopian perfection, all in my mind
crying looking at the sky;
It comforts, it holds my hand,
keeps me close.
Everything is better now, 
despite everything looking bleak,
no one lets it be and we have a remedy for everything.

now ill just cry in the lonely...

Standing Idle

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

When thunder rumbles and poison falls
We stand idle
When we hear mother’s pleas and calls
We stand idle

When the does vanish from the grass
We stand idle
When the creatures disappear from this world so vast
We stand idle

When the screams and screeches reach our ears
We stand idle
Tales of mud, blood and tears
We stand idle

When war rips our world apart
We stand idle
When people roam the earth for a new start

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

When People are not hungry
When people are not thirsty
When the earth is clean
When Everyone is treated equally
When everyone works together
When people are not killed
When there is no crime

When the ocean is clear

A Better World

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

I pray for a world to live,
That it doesn't matter your skin.
A world that has fresh waters, 
And orange trees in autumn. 
A world where animals aren't hurt,
And where humans are very alert.
I wish for a better world for all,
Where lions, tigers, and others can crawl.
I believe that we all can make a difference,
But the problem is no one will listen
I wish for everyone to come together,
And we all walk the...

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Where we can be
    Where we can live without discrimination or injustice
    Where we can see through each other's eyes
    Where we can love who we have a burning passion for
    Where we can play and work and talk and laugh together, without worrying about the color of our skin
    Where we can do what we've strived to do our entire lives
    Where we can help nature thrive...

In Light

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”


Where souls are satisfied and have no lack 
Where the lamb rests its head on the gentle arc of the lion's back
Where people from every tribe, nation, and tongue
gather together as one 
With their Savior, glowing in light
With their Savior, who has set every injustice right
O always in mind may this joy and peace be
This potential to be fully free

Why is this how it is

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Why did this have to happen
Why must there be so much hate
Why can't everyone accept each other
Why do we judge one another on our skin color
Why can't love just be love
Why are there still wars
Why are people still killed, abused, harrassed
Why were we created this way, imperfect
Why am I the way that I am
Why me
Why can You not hear my screams
Why is there no reply
Why God?

Rose Colored Lenses

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”


fractures of light glint off the pieces of glass 
your feet crushing them with each step 
and you hear the grinding as they turn 
into dust, never to be repaired again 
biting back a gag, you close your eyes 
feeling the putrid breeze fall over you 
like the oil painted waves that crash 
and you catch a glimpse of something 
short of paradise in that moment of in-between 
come on little darling, what are you waiting for?
that feeling of...

When Heaven Comes

When I can hold up my head and speak my heart without fear
When I can sing without the world stabbing me for my joy.
When I can dance freely without people telling me to succumb to their own depressive bonds
When I can hold the violets that will never wilt and the roses that will never die
When I can look upon a new earth brimming with life and growth and purity
When I can smile every second of...

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”


I wish for the leaves of the tress to stop falling.
I wish for the wind to stop blowing my hair.
I wish for the sun to stop.
I wish for the clouds to halt.
I wish the colors in the sky never fade.
I wish cars would stop rushing by.
I wish I could hear your laugh.
I wish you hadn't gotten a car.
I wish you hadn't gone out.
I wish for time to stand still.

Where Life Doesn't Cost

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Where life doesn't cost happiness
Where love doesn't cost fear
Where sickness doesn't plague everyone
Where none shed a tear

When joy comes so easily
When hope isn't lost
When friends don't give up on me
When peace doesn't cost

Where there is equality
Where no one is judged
Where someone will set me free
Where all will be loved

When Will We Make It Happen?

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

When standards set by society are eliminated
    When stupid expectations are forgotten
When no one is discriminated
     When we get our peace after putting so much in

When people open their eyes
      When love is accepted
When no one dies
       Since homosexuality is a sin

When we can stop crying
     because after so much trying
People are finally done dying
      For what others kept prying...

Safe When We are Dead

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

Safe when of course love is love is love
Safe when humanity wakes up from its consumer-induced sleep and sees the imminent death of the world
Safe when I don't walk around with my heart in my mouth, waiting to become one in six women
Safe when everyone takes off their race-tinted glasses
Safe when shots don't ricochet off our fragile bodies and we don't mentally mark hiding places everywhere we go in fear of it
Safe when starvation doesn't...

Real

PROMPT: “Heaven of Freedom”

When the river flows freely,
When the crow caws without fear,
When the deer and the lion feed together,
When the sky is simply blue,
When the rocks sleep without pause,
When the trees bend in peace,
When the world is without terror,
When tranquility is real.
