Daily Poem #11

I will cast you gone
to the darkest place.
Bid you goodbye
with your race.
Feed you I shall not
dirty rat!
Hair shall be shaved
of it's nasty nat.

I will cast you to work
in the worst conditions.
Your heart shall soon
no longer function.
Mind you
I shall not.
And my actions will soon
only be forgot.

I will cast you to death
in hells flames.
Make you pay
for your peoples claims.
You shall soon be
no longer.
Forever taken
in heavy dust yonder.


I have always had a huge interest in the Holocaust. How something so traumatic had lasted as long as it had is unfortunate, yet genius. As much as people hate to admit, Hitler was extremely smart and gifted. Although he used his gifts in the most darkest ways. Most evil and controlling ways ever imagined. Years ago I would read book after book on anything I could find from the times of the Holocaust. Only a few things have kept with me that I may never forget. Josef Mengele, "the Angel of Death," was one of the worst followers of Hitler. Experimenting on twins. Never using anesthetics on any of his patients. He believed it was the only way of knowing what was really happening to the nerves. He tortured children all the time and gave them chocolate as if it somehow equaled out the odds. But without him we wouldn't know so many things in science about our bodies. So many more lives would have been lost due to ignorance. But it still isn't justified. In fact for most people, knowing where the information came from that you would have received such help in an illness or defect, you would probably feel guilty. No matter, I will always stay true to the saying, "everything happens for a reason." I live by it. Because everyday it is proved to be true if you just look around. All the evil in the world, can be learned from. And after all, sometimes it takes war and killing, to bring peace.

Daily Poem #10

The big ten! I know I already posted poetry very early this morning, however, those are not counting towards an actual Poem of the Day. I gave myself a bit of a challenge today by asking my friends and family on Facebook what subject my Daily Poem should be on today. I received three answers; strength, gin n' juice (which I would like to change to red wine) and growing older. Since I was only given three, I thought, what the heck, I'll do them all. 


there are times
where we may fall.
times of misled
presumptions.

there are times
when we may fumble.
times of clumsy
misfortunes.

there are times
where we may slip.
times of wicked
confusions.

there are times
when we will stand.
no faltering
resolutions.

there are times
where options are no more
to falter or heel.
to be without
declaration.

there are times
when we must fight.
times of
perseverance.

Red Wine

dark is she
my beautiful friend.

she dances for me
in such a blend.

i kiss her gently
drink her well.

my lips will stain
tales to tell.

bitter is she
in this gloomy night.

she warms me still
my sweet delight.

as she lays me down
sleep i may.

my little drink
i'll never sway.


 ...........................


i say everything has changed today,
the sea's seem to speak.
the ground seems to weep.

i say everything has changed today,
animals seem to whisper
with secrets of winter.


i say everything has changed today,
the tree's have barked
to the winds remarks.


i say everything has changed today,
the streets much smaller
in this i wonder.

i see everything has changed today,
my eyes so clear
my soul so dear.

i see everything has changed today,
my heart has opened
with the world now relived.


I may write my last one again sometime. I am quite tired. Many upon many thing distracted me today from doing my Daily Poems when I had liked to. But it is not the end of the day just yet. And so I have accomplished my grand goal and am leaving it be. Two out of three is better than nothing at this time. Today has been interesting but I am glad to say it is now over and I shall bid myself goodnight. Hope you have enjoyed my tributes for today.

Midnight Desease

All day I have been telling myself that I wanted to write more and every time I do this I end up writers blocking myself. How does this happen. I get in the mood. Feel like I can write anything in the world. And somehow just can't find time, although I'm not doing a single thing. And then boom, I have nothing to say anymore. I'm interested in this circle of madness in myself. There really should be no excuses for it. So tonight...or today...this morning, I will attempt to force write...as this has become my major goal here.

The forest will call out to you,
as I have done many times before.

You hear the tiny calls
of even the rustles in the leaves.

Yet my screams have become mute to you
a silent thing in the night.

And there is nothing left
for me to say to speak to you.

Cold here,
in the night.


.................................


I write for days.
For days to come.
To come into light.
Into light from the night.
The night will speak to me.
To me alone it heals.
It heals my mind of suffering.
Of suffering in the cold.

The cold mind of mine.
Of mine to hold dearly.
Hold dearly do I of my thoughts.
My thoughts of sacred bliss.
Sacred bliss please take me.
Take me to your place.
Your place of beauty.
Of beauty I will write.


....................................


in the deep dark see of this lonely night,
I see you.
and in the depths of these thoughts of mine,
I hear you.

you are the darkest of lies,
the seas of my tears.
you have traveled far,
in my trust my dear.

in the light of a sunny day,
I shall not see you.
and in the cracks of my love,
I shall never hear you.

for my days will be of peace,
many smiles to come.
and my heart shall beat on,
for only me.


...................................


little chicken
don't cluck.
little chicken
please duck.

little chicken
just smile.
little chicken
wait a while.

little chicken
don't grow.
little chicken
to and fro.

little chicken
little chicken.
please,
don't go.

Daily Poem #9

Getting hyped up on Irish Breakfast Tea, my favorite, and ready to write today.


"Cremation"

dust becomes me
as I have left this earth.

in peace I will be
forever from now,
waiting not alone for you,
for my kin is around.

this moment
finally here
is a long lasting dream.

I know I shall be missed
although my heart
is now at peace.

as I was scared
once before,
I shall never again.

for I have tasted the fire
from my burning skin.

no pain
will I ever feel again.

dust has become me
in my beautiful end.


-Inspired by my Dad, Anthony Lampe.

Home Alone...Kinda

So my mom and step-dad had to leave yesterday. I'm not sure when they'll be back but Anthony's (my step-dad) niece, my cousin Brittany, was supposed to have a major open surgery today and for some reason I do now know of at this time, they canceled it today. I hope everything is going O.K. at least. She's been having extremely horrible problems with ulcers in her stomach. I only wish her the best and that somehow they can fix her enough to live her life. She's only eighteen and she has already had to go through one surgery, now this. I can't imagine what she might be going through. I contemplated on leaving with them, and in a way I think I should have, but my little sister shouldn't be missing any more school and then we would have had to figure something out for the dogs. I knew my boyfriend was going to be leaving today, therefore they would have no one to look after them Saturday or Friday night. So I stayed home to take care of things. The problem, I felt like I was by myself.

I guess you could say I have insecurity issues when it comes to the house or any place I am sleeping at. Are the locks good enough? Are the windows locked? Can I hear well enough outside? Will the dogs know? Yes. But I still worry. All night. I could hardly sleep last night. It got so bad I was literally watching time go by. I hate staring at my windows watching them get lighter. My boyfriend was here with me but our dog Ivy kept lifting her ears and was creeping me out. Maybe we both had the same issue. Our whole pack was not home, and it never feels right. I guess I'm so used to my Dad Anthony being home that, when he's not, I feel very weird and nervous. I spent most of the night freaking out in my own mind, making things worse basically. Sometimes my mind wonders so much that I just start making up different scenarios of "what if."

Earlier yesterday, my dad left the news on and of course after they leave a story of a horrid home invasion comes on. This man tied everyone up, molested the 17 and 11 year old children. He took pictures of them on his cell phone and sent them to his friends making jokes. And when he was all done he set the house on fire. I'm not sure what happened to the family after the fact. They could still be alive, I don't know. It happened in a different state, but that doesn't help my mind. Home invasion has been something I have feared and thought about since I was a child. I have always feared anything like this happening to my sister and I, I just know I could never let it happen. That I WILL fight harder than others and I won't ever let myself become a victim. Your in my house, your the victim. Period. Now that I have a shotgun, a gun of my own, I feel a million times better. Although my mind never stays in the positive for too long. I was thinking last night for hours about my safety getting stuck on, the gun getting jammed and what I would do then. I tried to tell myself to relax and stay calm. Having dogs definitely helps because I know that if anyone were trying to get in our dogs would be the first to know. I have to trust that, but even still I am sometimes stupid enough to think, what if they can't hear. It's like a never ending circle of fear. I'm not sure why I go to such an extreme. But my mother has always raised me to be cautious. Maybe not THIS cautious but to definitely be aware. You never know how the cards in life may change.

Daily Poems #3-8

I am now six Daily Poems behind and because of this I decided to give myself a challenge. A while back a friend of mine introduced me to the American way of writing Haiku's. As I have just discovered on Wikipedia, the Japanese write their Haiku's a bit differently and it is quite confusing to me. The Japanese write their Haiku's in 17 moras, not in syllables. Apparently they are very different, however I really am quite too lazy to figure this out. Especially since it makes a huge difference whether they are written in English or Japanese, and I do not know how to speak nor write in Japanese. So here I will attempt to write six decent Haiku's. Or what I now like to call American Haiku's. These will be considered my Daily Poems 3-8!


Haiku's.....

3.

for my soul will sing
in mountains and the blue sea
forever to hear

your cries will be heard
my song will sooth you to sleep
forever no tears

when my child awakes
smiles shall haunt her precious days
forever no fear.

.............


4.

for you my dear love
i shall suffer with pleasure
sacrificing heart

with every tear
i shall bleed from my sweet flesh
never shall be pain

...............


5.

as i walk these stones
i pass the sweet aroma
the smell of flower

these roses were made
for the sweet souls like my own
for the purest kind

i shall always stop
will foolish patience in time
to smell life growing

forever to stay
will i relieve myself here
such burden to some

but there is one kind
the red yellow of roses
that shall steal heaven

my breath it will take
and with will shall i give thee
every sole time

................


6.

the rain falls down now
with such an urgent duty
the darkest of clouds

we have been waiting
for these times to come to us
our patience prevailed

the smells of this rain
over come each who exist here
and we shall savor

yes to celebrate
we shall all dance in tribute
coming together

rain will not divide
there is no prejudice here
for nature loves all

although we're not same
rain shall never punish us
for all time it falls.


...............


7. "Small Suffering"

children will now play
in the gardens of their minds
the innocent place

for with ignorance
they have always learned to stay
when darkness takes them

with not a sole choice
resilient they will be
timelessly captive

their eyes tell stories
of pasts buried in their soul
deep secrets to keep

and still they play on
in their little grove gardens
never will they leave


..............


8.

with flowers in spring
rabbit has plenty to eat
waking itchy nose

he shall hop from home
stealing what he always finds
carrots in great sight

with munches of joy
echo's race through the garden
for all to now hear

not worried is he
gathering with all his time
he shall gallop fast

hopping to safety
he stares at his tasty goods
full belly to come


Wow I had a really fun time writing all of these Haiku's. I don't think I would have ever wrote such poetry without this blog. It was a very good idea to start as I have mentioned before. I knew I was in the right mood today to express such emotion and imagination. My mind has has been wondering today. Not to mention the many things that are going on in my life. Today my real Dad called me and that always makes me happy. He seems to be calling more often. I'm always very worried about him but as time goes on, it definitely heals. For quite some time now he has been making the right decisions for himself and has been doing so well. I know now that he is here for me and it feels good. It's what I'v been waiting for, for so much of my life now. I don't think though that without the mistakes my Dad has made that I would be the same person I am today and I don't think my emotions would be at the level they are now.

I'm not sure if I have worded that correctly enough to understand but I have always felt that with pain in life comes so much more emotion in ones personality. And without all of my emotions I couldn't write the way I do. My amount of empathy for the characters I imagine or the situations I make up in my mind is endless. With empathy comes great understanding in my opinion. You can never understand some things completely but it's the thought that counts. Especially when so genuine. Everything I write is genuine. Never so personal though. I tend to write so randomly that stories seem to develop on their own in strange ways.  I feel most of the time that I am not writing my own poetry but that some force in me lives there and sometimes likes to express itself by possessing me. Never have I thought of a story and then wrote the story more beautiful. I have always just began to write and eventually it turns into a story. Only images can come to me in such an instance and I never know why. But I write about them and describe them the best of my ability for others to see so I can share such beautiful places in my mind. My many upon many "grove gardens."

Family Reunion

I am four Daily Poems behind schedule as of now. But I had a very busy weekend. Our family reunion was on Saturday. There were probably over 200 of us there all at our cousin Monica's house. And that wasn't even all of us. There were a huge number of people who couldn't make it. We had a lot of fun though. They held a hula hoop contest and I was one of the winners. I got a $20 gift certificate to Jamba Juice, which is one of my favorite places ever. I love wheat grass. So anyway, I met so many cousins who I never had even heard of before the reunion and it was just beautiful. Of course most of today has been spent trying to find all of them or as many as I can on Facebook. Everyone has posting wonderful things about how much fun they had. Pictures are almost endless to look at from the reunion. It was catered and when it started getting late the DJ showed up and played music till 11p.m. I danced with my long lost cousins for hours and we just had fun laughing, drinking and enjoying each others company. I spoke with some of my family in deep conversation and it felt so good. Family is one of the most important things. I am lucky I have so much family. This family reunion was only for my great-grandmother Alice and her three sister. The family that was there were only their kids and grand children and great grand children. I am truly blessed. And although we are all so different it doesn't separate us because we all share blood and no matter what we are all connected for all time.

This is my Grandma Alice' children all in her color, purple. She's in the middle of all the madness with a hula hoop in her hand (:

Daily Poem #2

Before the day ends I would like to get a "Poem of the Day" in. My family took a road trip today to northern California and our five hour trip turned into a seven hour trip. On the way we always drive through cow farms in the middle of nowhere and this time we ended up in completely stopped traffic. But we always find a way to make the best out of things. My (step) dad Anthony decided to make a party for everyone else in traffic and rolled all the windows down in the car and blasted Michael Jackson. He was dancing so crazy in the drivers seat that the whole car was shaking. We couldn't breathe hardly because of the rancid smell of cow poop but my mom and I were laughing hysterically while my sister Amanda was crying because she couldn't breathe and she was trying to hold her breath. My mom recorded most of it on her camera. I hope soon I can get it up on here if I can figure it out for who ever to see. I'm just glad we'v finally made it. Tomorrow is our family reunion. Our reason for coming. And it should be extremely exciting considering it's our very first. And now before it turns midnight and is no longer today...I shall write as I have promised to myself.

Poem of the Day #2

As I reach for you my dear
I can only feel the ice from your soul.

And as I freeze here for you
my body is overwhelmed with darkness,

Time will only stand still for me
as yours shall go on.

I give myself to you
my life now forever gone.

If you shall one day warm me of your love
I shall come to you unchanged.

My desires shall stay as the day
you held me here captive.

I pray in silence for your cold heart
to come to me in light.

But forever I shall suffer in your black abyss
waiting with undying love.


This poem started with one line stuck in my head and twisted into a whole other dark land of imagination. I knew this Daily Poem thing was a good idea. It's a forceful way to make myself ponder into the imagination I know I always have with me.

Slight Thoughts

When dark ruins put you to your rest
everything is still in the night.

As you are now,
cold skin with such red on your cheeks.

The grave tells all to each of us
as our time grows slim in these whirls of sand.

In our glass we shall stay
forever pondering if hours shall exist elsewhere.

My eyes are so puffy I can't quite concentrate at the task at hand. I got somewhat a good ways through. At least I tried. And now this small bit poem will have to join my quite large collection of half worked creations to maybe one day form a full poem of their own one. This is how my poem "The Intentions of the Walker" (click here for poem) seemed to come about. I wrote for days and days and thought up all of these ridiculous lines. They soon all became one. I connected the dots finally and my thoughts came together.

There's nothing more annoying than never being able to place your thoughts together. When they'r so complicated you have to piece them together like a puzzle...it gets old. But it's the only way I work at times. So I have to deal. There is no escape from ones self. No matter.

Right at this moment I am finding myself even more restless and it only continues. So I will form here send myself to sleep and write more in the morning.

My Very 1st Daily Poem

So I'm thinking of doing a daily poem. Whether it be crappy or something silly, I may just write something good every once in a while. We'll see how this goes. I'm already trying to start a habit in myself to be here everyday. Even if I feel the need to come on my blog twice or more a day. So here it goes...

Poem of the Day! #1

ripples in the pool of water
take to me timeless motions

where life in it's simplicity
wraps you in it's warm arms

although chills may come upon you
you are always contempt in the end

contempt with nature telling you
everything is o.k.

and as the leaves above you
play with one another in the wind

you look to the skies that have always
over time told stories themselves

for they have seen all in this world
and have shared secrets with our wind

dirt fills the cracks in our feet
and we feel at one with this earth

for someday we shall become
this dirt under our selves

but for now, we live
in beauty of these lands.

For as many distractions as I have going on I think I didn't do half bad. Forceful poetry can be the answer to my continuous lack of inspiration for writing. For writing anything. I'v been working on a story of a Zombie and it's mistress. I can't say anymore then this but my mind has been racing for so long with so many ideas I can never seem to settle with anything. Not to mention by the time I'm done brain storming I don't even want to write anymore. My fingers get cramped and I am tired.

I remember watching a documentary on people who have problems with writing all day...literally! This man sat at his desk with papers literally covering his entire floor and something in them just makes them not want to stop writing. Who knows what kind of things they'r writing. Maybe they write the same things over and over sometimes. You can't have that much to write about can you? It was amazing to me. I remember thinking it would probably be a gift for a writer to have that problem. So many idea's would come about if you wrote that often. Lets say Stephen King had this problem. How many more books do you think would have been published if he had this disorder? I bet they would even want to sell some of his writings that may not have even made sense. He's famous enough that people would buy his random thoughts in a 300 page book for $50.00. Classic. Maybe I would too.

Fred Morning Memory

I haven't been up this early in quite some time. 07:30a.m. the time in which my sister needs me to get up to take her to school. She's wearing her Fred shirt today. Fred has been a huge sensation on YouTube for who knows how long and now he's getting famous. He's coming out with his own movie that will be premiered on Nickelodeon. We could have been in that movie!

One day I saw a post from Fred on Facebook that he was going to be in our area (about 20-30 min away) shooting a video at a Target! And we could be in it if we just showed up! So it said to be there by 01:30p.m. We arrived at 01:00p.m. Stayed till 04:00p.m. We were hot and exhausted. We met other kids who had already been in Fred videos who ended up leaving! So we left too, only to later find out on Fred's Twitter! That he actually wasn't going to be there till 04:30p.m. All we had to do is hang in there thirty more minutes and we could have been in a scene in the Fred movie and his music video!!! I felt soooo bad the next morning when we found out. Honestly, I felt like crying. But I knew it only would make my sister cry and make her even more upset about a big opportunity we could have had. Oh well.

We all try not to dwell on the past. But when I see my little sister wearing her Fred shirt proudly...it makes me sad I couldn't make her dream come true because my phone died right when we left that day so there was no way of us getting any new info on the matter! And jealous I don't have a Fred shirt either!!

First Blog

I had in the past created a blog before this one. Avery unsuccessful blog considering I never used it and forgot everything from my password to the e-mail I used and my user name. Must have been something around Eyes Chambers. I have used the name for many things. I change my mind so often I can never quite stay on the same page with myself for too long. I'm not sure why this is.

Lately I have been less and less inspired to write in general. And also a shocker, more so in my own journal. It has become my worse enemy for some reason beyond me. I have been depressed enough to write in my journal yet the pages lay empty for many days. I don't usually write when i'm happy which has always been interesting to me. I like to keep dates of things that have happened to me for a record. I have the worse memory on the planet for my age and so when I build up all of these events in my life sometimes I would like to have a reminder of which came first. My memory works worse in that department. I can sometimes think that something that happened three weeks ago happened two months ago. Many strange looks come to me in my life believe me of this.

Now that I think more of this blogging thing, I think that it can help me with my writers block. I still write little things here and there but what I really want is to get back to my real dream. The dream of writing my own book. To say that I had finally finished a story. A real story. Not just a tiny poem with a picture to paint in your mind. Pictures are easy. There's nothing to it. At least for a person like myself. But to tell a good tale. To tell a story of fiction which would touch some hearts and make them smile and enjoy your book as a time passer. That would be a dream. A huge dream of mine. I have many issues with this though. Dreaming things and never doing much to accomplish any of it. I have dreamed since the day I was born.

My mother told me, that when I was born, I never cried. She thought I was dead at first. She told me that I just simply stared around the room. Almost emotionless. As a baby she never knew if I needed a diaper changed or when I might have been hungry because I rarely cried. She would wake in the morning and check on me in my crib. I would be laying there staring and she would get worried because she had no clue as to how long I had been awake. Perhaps starving without a care. In some ways I'm still like this. If there is anything wrong with me physically I get very quiet. I guess we all have our "things".
