    Post Poetry : One from another, one from yourself

    FIRST AMMENDMENT TO RULES - 30 June 2020:
    If it is your turn to post a poem of your own, but you want to post a poem from another person, then you must first forfeit your turn with a photograph from nature and explain why you like the photograph. Similarly, if it is your turn to post a poem from another person, and you want to post a poem of your own, then you must first forfeit you turn with a photograph of modern technology and explain why you like the photograph.

    The rules for this thread are as follows:
    - The first poem you share must be from another person
    - The second poem you share must be from yourself
    - See first ammendment above

    There is no restriction on language or age.

    If you share a third, or fourth, or fifth poem, you must alternate between a poem from another to a poem from yourself, ad infinitum.

    My first poem is a poem called "Subh Milis" by Máirtín Ó Díreáin. English translation of title: "Sweet Jam".

    Bhi subh milis
    Ar bhaschrann an dorais
    Ach mhuach mé an corraí
    Ionam a d'éirigh
    Mar smaoinigh mé ar an lá
    A bheas an baschrann glan
    Agus an lámh beag
    Ar iarraidh

    English translation:

    There was sweet jam
    On the door handle
    But I quenched the fury
    That arose within me
    Because I thought of the day
    When the door handle would be clean
    And the little hand would be gone

    And a poem from myself which I wrote tonight. I took inspiration from the poem spoken in the film, "The Miseducation of Cameron Post", on which my screen name is based.

    My poem is entitled, "Strength":

    It is at my weakest points that I am strong

    It is in my weakness I find my greatest strength
    Were I not so weak, would I not be so bravely strong?

    In my infirmities I am weak --
    In my ignorance and incompetence
    True weakness lies in my worried and defeated mind
    Deep inside my weak and worried mind
    Is where I am strong.

    And so I relish in my shortcomings
    I boast of my cowardice and indecisiveness
    For it is this indecisiveness that chooses me to be weak
    And it is my choice that when I am weak, I feel strong

    Overturning verdicts and sentences within and inside myself
    Overturning and turning and turning and turning
    Inside out a decade of non-achievement
    Weak hopes
    Weak dreams
    Weak aspirations

    I lay and immerse in this putrid fresh weakness
    -- weakness that I defiantly call mine

    Because it is that I am weak;
    It is for this purpose
    And by this very design
    That my weakness is strength

    I've held back on some of the new threads I was tempted to create. The Bahamas were nice, but 5 weeks a long time to be away. I might go the whole hog though and start posting mad shit.

    It’s been a little nutty while you were gone, especially in the lounge. Happy to have you back, please help just keep the peace and keep everything in moderation. We all need it

    Sanity is free....

    W. B. Yeats wrote a poem entitled "Among School Children". The poem is quite long and has eight stanzas, but I will just give the eighth stanza:

    Labour is blossoming or dancing where
    The body is not bruised to pleasure soul,
    Nor beauty born out of its own despair,
    Nor blear-eyed wisdom out of midnight oil.
    O chestnut tree, great rooted blossomer,
    Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?
    O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
    How can we know the dancer from the dance?

    I wrote this poem today, entitled "Between Empty Space":

    I am the item
    that sits between empty space

    I am neither matter, nor dark matter

    I am neither collected, nor nebulous

    There is empty space between anti-matter and matter
    in the moments before annihilation --
    And as the two collide. . .
    As the empty space is eradicated. . .
    I am that item between the empty space

    I am the vacuum, I am the draw, I am the attractor

    I at the very item itself which is the annihilation

    I wrote this one just now. The title is taken from Hitler's autobiography, "Mein Kampf" = "My Fight". Also I have taken inspiration from Rachel Platten's song entitled, "Fight Song".

    My poem is entitled, "Mein Kampf", and I repeat the German sentence throughout, "Das ist mein Kampfgedicht" = "This is my fight poem".

    Mein Kampf

    Das ist mein Kampfgedicht

    This is my fight poem
    -- the expression of my unwillingness
    to accept my condition

    Das ist mein Kampfgedicht

    This is my fight poem
    -- the telling of my plight
    the sharing of my inexactness

    Ich zeige dir mein Kampfgedicht
    Ich teile meinen Kampf mit dir

    I show you my fight poem
    I share with you my fight

    What will come to me
    will depart from me
    What will collide with me
    will deflect from me
    What will enter me
    will exit me
    Forces come in pairs
    as negativity is met with resistance
    -- my resistance

    My elastic heart scrunches
    and springs as it absorbs outside forces

    Das ist mein Kampfgedicht

    This is my fight poem
    My refusal is my weapon
    My rejection is my power
    My choice is my freedom

    Incoming, outgoing
    Acceptance, refusal
    The flesh is mortal and weak
    But my soul is determined and resolute

    Beginning to end
    Start to Finish
    Alpha to omega
    Aquaintance to Marriage to Death

    Das ist mein Kampfgedicht.

    There comes a time when it is no longer said: my God.
    Absolute clearance time.
    Time when it is no longer said: my love.
    Because love turned out to be useless.
    And the eyes do not cry.
    And the hands weave only the rough work.
    And the heart is dry.

    In vain women knock on the door, you will not open.
    You were alone, the light went out,
    but in the shade your eyes shine brightly.
    You are all sure, you no longer know how to suffer.
    And you expect nothing from your friends.

    Never mind old age, what is old age?
    Your shoulders support the world
    and it weighs no more than a child's hand.
    Wars, famines, discussions within buildings
    just prove that life goes on
    and not everyone is free yet.
    Some, finding the spectacle barbaric
    they would rather (the delicate ones) die.
    There is a time that dying does not worth it.
    There came a time when life is an order.
    Life only, without mystification.

    This is not mine, its from a song but i find it incredibile.
    I see you
    You see me
    How pleasant
    This feeling
    The moment
    You hold me
    I missed you
    I'm sorry
    I've given
    What I have
    I showed you
    I'm growing
    The ashes
    Fall slowly
    As your voice
    Consoles me
    As the hours pass
    I will let you know
    That I need to ask
    Before I'm alone
    How it feels to rest
    On your patient lips
    To eternal bliss
    I'm so glad to know
    We're swaying
    To drum beats
    In motion
    I'm feeling
    My patience
    Controlling
    The question
    I won't speak
    We're telling
    The stories
    Our laughter
    He knows me
    We're leaving
    We're talking
    You're closer
    It's calming
    As the hours pass
    I will let you know
    That I need to ask
    Before I'm alone
    How it feels to rest
    On your patient lips
    To eternal bliss
    I'm so glad to know
    The night will hold us close and the stars will guide us home…

    I get up every day and decide to shut up.
    Yes, from everyone who doubts my ability.
    Why, if I don't make it worth it now.
    What will become of my life?
    Between stormy thoughts someone anti-defeat is born.
    Who cut himself off from the world of false people, to be who he dreamed of being.
    Among the steel, my spirit gets stronger.
    Between the bench press my life changes every day
