Grandmother a Matriach to MeIt has been a yearGrandmother a Matriach to Me by HanOneSail
Without you in our lives
So much is happening now
More than it ever has
Big changes for everyone of us
Since your passing left me dysfunctional
In spirit as you watch over
I still miss you of course
We will always remember you
Deep within our hearts
Not a day goes by
Where I don't think of such a wonderful soul
At times I look at my phone
About to dial your number
To give some good news
Wonder what you are up to
Only to remember your not there anymore
Since as early I can recall
You have been the best role model
Going through much yourself
Yet still able to oppress weakness
Difficulties of living
While reminding us of what the right way of life is
Grandmother you were the only grandparent of mine
Grateful to have been born with you present
Because as much as the world howls at me
I'll hold in the single fact that
We had you in our lives
So I go through life
With strong goals of success
Since you were the one who helped me reach
Such a compromise with myself
Only I re
A New UpbringingDeep the remorse of a thousand criesA New Upbringing by HanOneSail
No more shall they soothe the lies
In the ages to come only many will attempt
To bring down all the hypocrisy lit
Let not the lily be taken
Leave it within the lake
So others may gaze upon it's peace
Guard it well as there will be those with fleece
For now is the time to uplift
The powerful emotions we conflict
A Penny In The PocketThere's a man standing upright hiddenA Penny In The Pocket by HanOneSail
He's asking for some spare change
The onlookers give and go
Remorse or without its hard to say
I rustle through my pockets
Find nothing but a little penny
All I can give or not how to decide
I'll give him that penny and learn
That even the littlest can be appreciated
This man gains one cent more to live
I gain insight on what it means to give
It's a cycle that no one can understand
Only to summarize to give is to feel good
Regardless of the smell of urine around
Regardless of the hot heat circulated
In here this hell hole
We made a connection beyond others
Many will find it too hopefully
But here with the least to gain
The most was gained
A penny in a pocket
Was like a million coins worth
For someone homeless 19 years
And for someone lived 19 years
There was a fate in line of each
Let neither lose their richness
Thinking a Parachute UpwardsUnable to fall down.Thinking a Parachute Upwards by HanOneSail
I'm thinking twenty four seven,
So much that it's burning
The air I'm falling in.
I ask myself constantly
Of the origination from when I fell off.
Refuting to travel with gravity,
That would crash me into the earth's troughs.
Why am I stuck on auto fire?
If I remember right it must be this life,
I am scared to stop thinking,
As once that starts waning.
I feel like it would be the end of me,
Even if it all this is digging my own hole.
I keep thinking of a literal degree,
That will give me a meaning to survive.
I don't admit to the validity of queries,
Inflating across my aging mindset,
Not to end up like the next reality series.
Selling out on a staged set,
To give up my brain;
And just plop onto the gravy train.
Put on a pedestal to be laughed at.
Since most likely I'll do something that;
Might get myself killed.
Since that's where all the thrill,
Is attracting most of the fans
That everyone ignores in the stands.
Some people behave that way to death.
Resolution of TearsThis is my absolutionResolution of Tears by HanOneSail
No necessary salvation
There's got to be someone else in this serenity
That can see the evil against this calamity
Let the fallen rise in their own
So we may slay their dark intentions
Bring oneself closer to God
Inhibitions of the one and only
Remorse of a golden age
New era secured by ancient lions
Praise thy lord my soul to keep
As I wait amongst this tower keep
How much would it cost
For all the world tonight
To complete a dynasty
Merge any uncertainty
And well go solve
As strong as our resolve
Let the heavens not fall
For this is a battle call
Broken But Not FallenWriting was much simpler before adolescenceBroken But Not Fallen by HanOneSail
In a sense of organization and just about all else relative
Sure my imagination fuels it to live on
However it feels as if bullet ridden from realities
It is hampered down unwilling to express
Yet still I write and strive to perfect my craft
Ignorance arrogance tenacity or is it all perseverance
I could care less as I listen to the expressions of others
Who I feel have gone down the same lines
I know that deep inside where once potential shined
It remains even if dirtied it only needs to be washed
Retrieved from the depths and perhaps it will come alive
Once again breathing the air rejuvenated to a ounce of gold
So I renounce my pen and paper even if no longer such a form
I bury away my regret happily knowing I will attain greatness
Not by the views of others but by my own a glimmer from the past
Building over the days to what I can call my passion
As much of a grave it is for me to even read any old words
To know I continue is a truth to be
|Have at thee.|

Dry Rain Clouds InboundFrostbitten lips missingDry Rain Clouds Inbound by HanOneSail
The tender heat daze.
Clouds spill and etch blackness;
Can't shake away the coldness.
Reverberating through an echo,
Tracing from the Indian summer full of a warming ego.
Deeper questions arise with the moon coming inwards.
Will we ever find ourselves
Across the faintly rivers.
Prayers told to fulfill wishes out of the blue.
Most just laugh in disbelief as we stay true.
Continuing at this pace,
Knowing of my spirituality's face.
Answers reveal in the mist.
Apologies retract memories.
A new stream of ideas insist
Another tireless vapor to join the breeze.
Leaving my body in stone the spirit floats onwards.
The Snake Charmer (2014)Ears deaf to musicThe Snake Charmer (2014) by HanOneSail
Bathe in blue lights
As if in a lukewarm river
Only hearing the thoughts of the musician
Pounding the sound barrier
Two snakes binding into a pair
Their venomous glands combine
Mixing new saliva to be injected
Breaking the stream of illuminations
Cavitation of bubbles
Form all around each being
The snake spear delivers
Fangs of water jetting
Piercing into the lively
With a sting commanded
To find the cancer they seek
That will provide feedback
From the heart full of relief
Of desired wavelengths
Overlaying like a strange ray
Colored of emotions fluttering
Dragonflies out of molts
To the healer from the audience
Like a meal with only drinks
Pouring into open mouths
Precious to the thirst
Fusing into charms
Felt across the atmosphere
Lights in the room weakening
Then in comes the spotlight
Taking charge of the spectacle
As if directed by God himself
Currency and gifts lain
On the stage offerings
In return for such
A delightful melodious refresher
An expression from the
Shadows Lay SoLet me sulk in my own, for another,Shadows Lay So by HanOneSail
Ten minutes or so will seal the deal.
It isn't like I'm worth much to anyone else.
I'm not close to the average and I'll never want to be.
Then that's the moment I stub my toe.
It hurts quite a bit.
So much that I'm shedding a quiet tear,
Yet I got to yell to myself,
It feels great!
Greeted by the cold air,
Falling out of bed;
Makes for a wonderful start.
Looking for the restroom,
Even though I know where it is.
I don't bother for a reflection anymore.
There isn't anyone I'd want to see.
Turn the knob and cool down further
With icy water reminding me that it's winter.
Everything else after that is hazy,
It also doesn't matter, I don't mean to be gloomy.
Time after time it's all just a pattern to keep continuing.
Even if the world no longer means anything.
Developing the inability to reciprocate affection back to others.
Finding waking up and sleeping just as plainness to breathing.
Life is simple and death is ample.
In the many lifetimes and dimensio
Blue Moonlight SongShe's playing her guitar, as she sings a different tuneBlue Moonlight Song by yami-joey
Different from all I know, she is shining as a blue moon
She tells me what she wants, she says, she wants to show the love -
Of a Father to the weary, a Father from up above.
Inspiring each soul, as she graciously sings, and plays her own guitar
An exceptional song, a moonlit song, that's always not too far
The melodies of love she plays, wearing that bright smile,
Every piece of truth from her, we understand, without guile.
She smiles, she soars and flies to different skies of grey and blue
Staying strong, she won't go wrong, her heart is serene too,
Yet there are times, as if she fails, and seeks that love as well,
Wanting to receive the care, that same Father has for her.
She sings the tune, with all her heart, while knowing all along,
That all she wanted was for someone else to sing her the same song.
Her different melody...it might fade...soon. Won't someone understand?
That love is what she wanted - in times she gave them al
Reflected Memories~Poetry Commission~Reflected Memories by RollingTomorrow
Walking a shadowed road
Where the passage of day and night
Yield so little hopeful light
Days of the same familiar suffering
Ever familiar agony,
Piercing what remains of "me"
A heart made of stone
Where the beats are only physical
People come and go,
Living and dying so fleetingly
No matter where I go,
No matter what forbidden borders I transgress,
It's always the same
Before feeling can return
They always disappear
The same old pain
I've felt blades pierce my heart
The guillotine sever my neck
Oxygen robbed by deep waters
It seems so trivial
The same drama, repeated time after time
But with even the most superficial injury
Will extinguish their lives
No matter where I go,
Controlled by the puppeteer's strings,
Mortality rules everyone, in every world
Dancing like a perfect marionette
Following orders no matter the cost or consequence
I walk my shadowed road
Abound with indistinct darkness and light
In every life,
In every realm,
I've been there watching
As their l
Closing Your EyesWhispers echo in my earsClosing Your Eyes by RollingTomorrow
Confirming every fear
The truth is here
Fate is too linear
Breath still held
Watch terror meld
These moments beheld
Promises are upheld
This cruelty is reality
The heartlessness is fate's ability
I'm haunted by fatality
Losing you was an eventuality
Regretting every mistake
Smiles that are fake
Hold me until I break
Because I'm still awake
So Many QuestionsSo many questions,So Many Questions by DarkSxKitten
the damn finally breaks.
All the questions flow free.
Where have you gone?
You said you would stay.
What happened this time
to take you away?
Did you mean all those things
that you said every night?
Why am I here
with tears blinding my sight?
Was our forever
something never meant to be?
Will you come running back
and say you still love me?
How do I trust you
when it seems that you lied?
Is it true that with time
I won't feel empty inside?
I sit with these questions
and so many more.
The biggest question yet:
What is love truly for?
Maybe I should know better.
By now I should have learned.
When you're loved by the fire
your heart will get burned.
I'll go on with my doubts now
as tears fill my eyes.
For the world I'll put on
my happy disguise.
|Poetry written by others!|
One Sail stands for my Chinese name given to me by my parents. Yi Fan. I am not very legible in reading or writing the mandarin dialect. I am American Taiwanese, I write poetry and stories. At times I do photography, however nothing that professional. I plan on finishing my first novel of my series called Shadows of God within my spare time.
I'll just keep dreaming until it ends and wake up seeing it become a reality...
I believe through poetry. People can connect and are able to break barriers of all sorts.
I feel that poetry helps most people throughout history to live through the times. Rough or not poetry is the root of many other art forms.
Whether the person is a poet or not.
They can always benefit somehow by writing poetry for their own sake as well.
As an artist I try to work towards a better tomorrow.
A better future for the mankind of the present time.
The total existence of the world.
So that what I do as a artist will help inspire people to do what they think they must do to help the world or to just enjoy it.
