Be the lookfree mind

They look at you, for your color and rights
They care less, if you’re one of those sides
And you ask yourself if they look at hearts
Or they just prefer to keep on their barks

Never get your heart
Close to their darts
Leave them and start
denying this clart

try to tell them “we still match”
if they say “we should detach”
stay away and try to reach
the others with better speech

Prison of Life

My siblings in humanity, don’t ever be fooled
By the seducing powers within this dying world
Don’t waste time consuming with heedless thought
What others spent years on to share with the rest
Others are trying, for how long have they fought
As if people don’t like others to get over the best

You need to use what you learnt to advance
We didn’t get brains just to waste them hence
That’s why, we should fix our paths and goals
And make sure we use time to help the ill
Act like ants and have affection for other souls
Thus make sure society remains still

Useful Poetry

A lot of people already consider poetry as a waste of time, and literature overall seems to them as a waste of time for humans. I don’t disagree with them. Some poems are indeed just a waste of time, and some literature is just time consuming, but not all.

To me, or to someone with the same brainwave as me, poems need to fall in one or more of 4 categories in order to feel meaningful, and one of them will probably enrages any human who figures it out.


Training or skill shaping

Obviously every writer needs to start writer. Every poet, also needs to get into poetry. That being said, poems done in order to train your writing skills and shape your reaction speed, how fast you can determine the shape the poem is in, how the verses and their rhymes should be ordered, etc … This is how humans learn, by training and correcting their mistakes. This is more beneficial to the person doing it than the community that requires moral reshaping. This helps forward your current goal as a poet into writing for more important reasons.

Letting your emotions ponder

Some people use diaries, others use private blogs. Some may prefer writing whole books and some might enjoy rhyming the words to better show their feelings. It is pretty obvious that a human can write in order to be his own psychiatrist. How useful is this ? It’s : free, easy, accessible, and effective. Although not to the extreme point of writing poems, usually people just stick with blogging or writing in diaries. But giving your sentences some jewelry from time to time isn’t a bad thing.

Human rehabilitation

Don’t be mistaken by the word you got used to hear when speaking of prison, it isn’t aimed mainly at just criminals as you may think if is, it’s pretty much like teaching a kid how to behave. Yes, it’s pretty obvious I suppose. Some societies require partial reshaping, or rehabilitation to some of it’s individuals in order to fix the way people approach moral issues or how humans behave. Poetry is a un-ignoreable tool if you want to reshape society. My native country for example, Tunisia, got a boost of motivation to regain it’s independence from France due to a poet who wrote about his love for his country. People might think music can do this better, but Poetry is still on the live side of changing society. It’s quick to say, not so hard to understand, and it’s catchy rhyming and rational structure allows it to spread in a relatively faster manner than the normal way of writing. This isn’t a generally up-voted reason to write poetry, and this does also apply to other literature forms, formally : story telling, article writing. It even applies to media and the net in general, hence why Blogs are such powerful tools.

Earning Money

I can’t say I’m sad to say it, because money is deeply related to most human that involves shareable activities, “free” was it or not. Poetry can be written in order to gain money. I remember one french teacher of mine who didn’t like Balzac so much due to the fact that he writes a book every month (normal literature). And I kind of agree with her, that feels like it’s a source of money rather than try to change society, although I haven’t read about Balzac. Nonetheless, there are people who write for money, whether we see them or not. It might feel infuriating for some, but remember that it’s a source of money for some, and they might not like to doing so and you can never know if it even suffices their living needs, so to them it may feel like half a job, although it is a hobby that you use for money.


There you go, [insert reader’s name here].  You seem to have read the whole post (or you skimmed some parts with your eyes, we all do that). Anyway, those are some useful ways why mainly poetry and generally literature can be useful in. But nowadays we should really speak of the internet and how media shapes society more than we should speak of old literature. Nonetheless, the media is the product of transitioning the ancient ways of spreading information to the age of the internet.

The Misguiding Thought

[Non Freestyle]

You might keep thinking of the past
Careless  about  what happens now
Careful  to make  the memories last
You nearly sell your “see” for “saw”

But   how long  does  the  past  last
It  will  unexpectedly  goes  by fast
Buzzing  your ears,  to  think  of  it
If you choose not to return and sit

[Free style]

But what does the present hold?
But  the  unreal   human  “must”
What  next  should  not  be  sold
What for the ending now of lust

The   present   never   held  a “some”
This fictitious layer that humans love
The  future,  the  place  for  the  sum
This   blessing    is    that  to  think  of

Rule-chain or Freedom

[Non freestyle]

The quality of a word might not need to exist
If your demand to improve thoroughly rushes.
I may spend hours trying to match these verses
But starting off simple makes it better built.

You love seeing the lines, totally filled
I love going abstract, starting somewhere
And word by word finishing elsewhere
Every sentence in a way, nicely stirred

[Freestyle]

And what points have these facts
As they have chained us in fact
Give us but weighted backs
Gaining a way to stop our hack?

I love it when the verses start so high
Then they gradually decrease in size
As they go for freedom of disguise
Where they can shuffle in a way so nice?

Stamp

This day of my life should be stamped
Where I felt so happy with the blessing I’m given
And my heart now lights up like a lamp
Patience if well used feels like a stair to heaven

Now my brain has been freed up from most disturbance
And I feel like I should cry happy tears
We humans are weak, we swirl at annoyance
Unless we know what should be our fears

Nested is  our  life
Joy fills  the  heart
We must be a hive
And not tear apart

I still feel sad that politicians make theater plays
And criminals dear not to stop weaking masks
When will someone act like the hero
Someone who wants people grow away from zero

Yawn

As you read this seemingly long sentence your eyes roll
You       my      brother,     you     start     feel    so     bored
As if you’re just mindlessly checking a poll
And      you      think       :      “Nothing new!”

Well I agree,  I try to   rhyme  the words  so hard
It   bores   me   to   find   what   logically  rhymes
But I care less because most things needs a start
Whether  long or short   that it  musn’t fall apart

And I care less, wheter people like
this poesy or want to  tear it  apart
After      all,      I      try        not    to    strike
A dead mountain which is useless to hike

But  you  think  no  way,
The  words  rhyme okay
I surely can’t coordinate
the words  unless vague

And now you think : oh no
His   words    start    to    go
Senseless      and      useless
And   of    almost   too   low

But   at   least,   if   you   read
All   the    way   to   this   part
You      show      know      that
We should stop wasting time

And we  must  start  to   think
To          end         this         link
Between us and wasting time
