My own photo!

Politicians seem the friendliest
When elections are nearest
They always wear a smile
To conceal their cunning guile

To win the hearts of voters
They are quick with handshakes
They lift the children to peck their cheeks
And please the moms with such ease

They make all kinds of wild promises
To bring the moon and meet your needs
If only you vote to make them succeed
Only to be forgotten when they win

They unfailingly hold a grudge
Against those who don't oblige
And make for bitter enemies
To innocent people like me!

When will politicians ever learn? 
That with humility and service they can earn
The goodwill of voters and people they need
But they need some traits to stand them in good stead.

Let me say my piece:

“Amity is virtue…
Amity is the best policy…
Amity is the magic word…
Amity is the key to success…”

The world is heartless
Kindness seems elusive

Children die of hunger
While rich wallow in comfort

Beggars brave the cold in pavements
Amidst palaces that shine in adornment

Babies mercilessly abandoned
While dog shows are pompously celebrated

Children exploited on hard labor
For the employers to save on wages

Young girls forced into life of sin
 For the rich in pleasure to indulge in

The problems are endless
The deprived are helpless

Kindness seems very elusive
The world is heartless

Your warm breathe I felt
Closer you came, lodged a kiss
Conscious, I begged more!

My Real Elixir!

When lost, sad, and down
your smile warms my heart . . .
my real elixir!

When pains left me drained
your gentle touch is a real balm . . .
my real elixir!

When soaring hopes suddenly dashed
your comforting words caress my soul . . .
My real elixir!

When my heart feels lonely
the mere thoughts of you uplifts my spirit . . .
my real elixir!

When my body aches and becomes restless
your presence lifts my mood . . .
my real elixir!
