The established order is such that
not creative freedom
is dominating all societies
while vested interests
be they political, economic or religious
are manipulating the masses.
As a result, each person is conditioned
to think in a certain way
or not to think at all
and responding favorably
when their subliminal strings are pulled.
Only those individuals who fall
through the cracks
escape this circumstance
however they are considered
to be anarchists.
Let there be light''''''''''''''''''''''''''
There is a lack of transparency
which makes the World affairs
absolutely dark and ugly
whistleblowers regarded highly.
Will the lights ever come on
the whole picture clearly visible,
the perception of existing reality
would that even be conceivable?.
The skillful game of deception
is called good diplomacy
an essential ingredient
of global political reality.
The power of the brute force
will be diminishing very fast
the game of war is played digitally
on the web, with computers at last.
It is high time we lit up this play
in all clarity, look at this insanity
the vanity of power over each other
is not going to give us eternity.
We need to play the reckoning game
once we admit we are all the same
and if we wish to move any further
may it be from evil but not mother.
Nature is what is real, let us be clear
let us serve our mother, which is dear
we have had a call, it is time we hear
then we shall have no reason to fear. Vensan Kembrek
SUBORIGINAL ART ~ PRIMITIVE MODERN ~ Vensan Kembrek
Stranded on an island called exile
where the self inflicted pain
makes the itch of longing remain
hard to scratch, ever again!.
As I wander on primary rocks
searching for my maker in gratitude
for stuffing my mind with ample thought
and an "easy come, easy go" attitude.
Yet I persist on demanding peace
not with an apocalyptic struggle
but a good old primal scream.
I remain stretched, reaching out
for a vision uncharted in a dream
obscured but viable it might seem.
As I walk that lonely walk
within the language of stones
up and down in rapid pace
searching for a time, a place
where I can ultimately face
the choice of my own making.
I have just enough hope to cope
with the bait at the end of my rope
as the outgoing tide
will take away and hide
those turbolent thoughts.
While images keep on falling
from the corner of my eyes
I can hear the silent cries
of forbidden angels shedding tears
at the sight of forsaken strangers. Vensan Kembrek

“Hate no one, no matter how much they’ve wronged you. Live humbly, no matter how wealthy you become. Think positively, no matter how hard life is. Give much, even if you’ve been given little. Keep in touch with the ones who have forgotten you, and forgive who has wronged you, and do not stop praying for the best for those you love.”- Ali bin Abi Talib (RA)
distorted concepts fill one's
mind in quick succession
flooding the brain with
that were contrived to
free thinking in sync with
instead reduced to ignorant
intolerance of truth that
existed ever since
sky was above,light of the
sun imparted warm respite
before it set to usher in
distorted perceptions is a
manifistation of ignorance
which brings darkness
to blot out the light of
may your perception be right
compatable with guidance,
sunlight generated from love
busting through the darkness
casting away ignorant
intolerence to truth
decending from above
powerfull vibes,tearing down
the roof that cover the lies
exposing the real prize that
darkness kept hidden from
searching spiritual eyes that
were always seeking to
not only see and be aware
but to hear and obey the words
they have heard the creator
say to live in the light and seek
blissfull bright eternal life!

balled up in fetus,in doorway
go to the movies to sleep,
under bridges,in subway tunnels,
sewer subterranean dwellers
go to rikers to eat,weep?for them?
disconnected folk couldn't play
the game,no face ,no name!
in da land of democracy while
the band"Aristocracy" plays their
hit "Hipocracy" No.#1 on the charts
thanks to lovers of the art of
deception,who make an art form of
greed,so smart it became the norm,
to spawn Capitalism's Capital of
wealthy "lords of the deal",while the
masses forlorn for real,for to long,have
to kneel at the alter of the "well heeled"
just to get along to scrape something
together for the next meal!
they who also got another hit song climbing
the charts,this week to #4, is the hit sensation
of the nation,
"I gotz mine,now you can go and get yours!"

Im in my white body
with my cherokee blood
My black soul reminded of
when I escaped from the hoods
Drifting on water
stolen from illegals
Wind from the flight
of Jonathan Livingston Seagull
I can hear
Robert Pirsigs motorcycle pass
I drink water
turned wine from an outdated flask
I discuss Taoism
with tigger and Winnie the Pooh
as eye stare at the stars
on my back in a canoe
