Poems should delve into how karma works and whether it is actually real or it isn't.

Karma

Karma exists in different forms in different philisophies or religions. If a muslim extremist blows himself up in a police station, big karma, goes directly to the muslim heaven and gets his 72 virgins or whatever. (I sort of wonder: if it is a female who blows herself up.....does she turn lesbian?).
  If a catholic dies with good karma, he goes to Heaven. Otherwise he goes to purgatory or directly to hell.
   As for orientals, it is more complicated, more diffilicult to reach Nirvana. If I remember correctly there are at least 7 steps.  Very lttle good karma or none, you end up in the body of some slimy beast , like  a snake...  You get good karma while in such a bind, you go up the animal ladder, in a manner, until you  have paid your dues and eventually reach Nirvana.
  Of the three, I much prefer the catholic one.

Karma (@@)

Karma does not know
The laws of physics,
That of  action which begets
Full reaction
A sort of spiritual concept
Which, like or not,
Roams over your head
Your life long.
For good actions and bad
You will feel the reactions
Bad ones, a nasty feeling in the guts
A good one, a tap on the shoulder
From an angel.
Karma does not exist
But is it very real.

Karma

Does the wrath of Karma truly exist?
 
Or is that just some made up bullshit?
 
Created for the people to feel better
 
After getting hit with smooth leather  
 
Scars on the backs of our forefathers
 
Coupled with mental ones of foremothers
 
Motivated the creation of it, I believe
 
Another effective tactic used to deceive
 
If she's real, where the hell is she hiding?
 
While people are out here constantly dying
 
Karma, please come show your beautiful face
 
Start making this cold world a better place

Karma fucks me in the ass and leaves everyone else a virgin to its penetration.

Benevolent Benefactor

There is no energy
except what you extend
via action or thought  
 
The Universe  
is a benevolent benefactor
who returns only
what you emit
 
No more  
No less

KARMA RHYME

mindless
as gravity,
it reflects
how you live --
karma's simple
equation:
you get what
you give

though obvious
actions
are not always
the clue --
one must dig
for the reason
the fates
play with you

some hidden agenda
that guides
heart and mind,
some misguided notion
the soul needs to find,
some darkness we hold
is misfortune explained
and in it the map
to karma's gold vein

Cosmic Efficiency (Born of Love)

Karma…  
Heaven’s law      
unbreaking fractures      
the Creation wrought        
redeeming the circle        
from shattered to whole      
       
The great tonic      
of justice and love      
player of all      
universal force      
balancing energies        
mighty and small        
aligning the galaxies        
to adjusting the scales        
weighing the drama      
of our mortal lives      
       
All is connected        
no thing on its own        
what we send out      
finds its way home        
positive negative        
we reap what we sow      
       
But humans have power        
sheer and profound        
to offer forgiveness        
and karma absolve      
when daggers we suffer      
darken the light  
       
raising the mortal to the Divine

Where Is Thy Heart?

 


“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Galatians 6:7-8



Plant, wisely, seeds for garden blooms
lest Karma sing, an off-beat tune
and with her twin, Come-uppance give
just rewards, to all who live.

O, wash thy hands and heart from soil
‘fore ill intents take hold and coil
‘round minds and tongues and wrong-laid thoughts
where harvest times, bring all-for-naughts.

Come plow the fields with honest furrows,
lay bare, the cankerworm and burrows
that seek to twist an ugly vine
from rotted roots that once were fine.

O, where, indeed, does one’s heart, lie
in works and words that we let fly?
Some will stand on solid ground
when what was loosed, comes back around.

Some actions have consequences

  
Forsake everyone  
by saving yourself  
via feigning neutrality    
    
Play the victim    
to a crucified t    
Woe to anyone    
who crosses me!
   
   
Spread gossip in public    
while privately telling lies    
or the opposite    
   
Is true;    
hardly should come    
as a surprise that you    
have few genuine friends    
if any    
   
That's Karma    
at its most basic    
minus the usual    
spiritual or metaphysical    
heavy lifting    
   
---as simple as the poems    
you begin authoring . . .    
but refuse to take    
credit for writing    
their ends, of which    
justify the means    
in moments self serving

A Terrible Time For An Erection

We all gathered there
To say our goodbyes  
Father Lewis said you were with Jesus now
There were sniffles and red eyes and the sound of people full on ugly crying
“A GAAA Uh GAAAA uh GAAAAA”
You were so loved
You’d be so missed
 
As I approached your casket
I reached in to touch your icy face
So cold to the touch
I imagined the stillness of your perfect body
The state of rest you mastered
The flower dress that in life was your favorite
And your winter nipples poking through  
Cutting through my heart’s brick wall
 
I imagined climbing inside with you
Spooning and feeling you up
Cupping your tits as I slid inside you
 
I was startled when Dad grabbed me
My hard on was on display for everyone to see
He pulled me out of the service
I thought he’d chastise me
Or beat me
But instead. he whispered...
 
“There’s no wrong way to process your emotions, son”
 
I miss you mom.

As a student of Theravada Buddhism, I'd suggest that you be more respectful of another's faith/philosophy/school.  KAMMA may decide to delved into to whether YOU exist.

Imperceptible 2 The Touch.

Just Like gravity,
this entity is a natural Law.
No vengeance lives,
just Justice and fairness
2 everything and every one involved.

A Divine simplicity,
yet complex,in its form.
You must remember,through all thoughts,
via action,this entity,distributes consequences,
dark or light,or both,2 all.

This entity,we know(or do we know?),
As "Karma"- A great cosmic teacher,
We cannot ignore.

One of the most important laws,governing our human lives.
2 evolve,we must experience the Karmic nature oscillating
throughout our lives.
Every second bye second,learning through our thoughts,
And reaction through action.
Karma leaves no stone unturned,not one.
SO........
personally I believe that Karma affects us all( how perceptive of me. Is your thought)! And Karma,a Sanskrit word meaning " action,"
good or bad,
Is coming 2 us All.x

Warri0rs!

I once read some where..  
"The sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence is viewed as deciding their faith in future existence..  
 

Pick of your pen take down a note  
War of words!  
Get this from me
Right down for you  
Warriors!  
 
In the day  
It is when you feel haze  
In the night  
It is when I feel gaze  
 

In the night  
It is when I engage  
In the day  
It is when you relate  
Everyday!

 
Ninah Masaj I needah massage  
Hear me out, I'm ma needah healer  
There's a mirage in my niqab  
I needah mean lie for my fiancé..  
 
Hear me out there's a sound  
Forcing me out inside a box  
Inside the box I saw my face  
What me be like, it was the day..  
 
Inside my mind I was detained  
With a bit of a luck I just escaped  
Warriors!  
Taking my chance I can debate  
Still I need me a time to make a case..  
 
A little recap fortnight ago  
Taking me out to walk a mile  
There's a life in my Utah  
Hullabaloo in my U-tah  
U-topia!..  
 
Until we match and match to Nile  
Hear me love you are alive  
Before I be late we need to set  
Dear My Lord am good to wait..  
 
You have a sea to navigate  
I have a heart to take attack  
Inside my mind I can recall  
I had these scenes a year ago..  
 
A Déjà to Vu I have a thought  
I mastermind in your demand  
Illuminate in chasing my ghost  
Dear My Lord give me a ride..  
 
I was into a comatose  
I tried to recall I am at lost  
I can't tell a tale of  
Every bit piece of life I ever had..  
 
 
 
In the day  
It is when you feel haze  
In the night  
It is when I feel gaze  
 

In the night  
It is when I engage  
In the day  
It is when you relate  
Everyday!

 
 
I have a nine give me a five  
Stitch in a time saves me a nine  
I have this pills for my relief  
I need me refill to make a relapse..  
 
Popped up my pills I got fuddled  
My pupils enlarged I overdosed  
Where am I?! Am in a daze  
What have I done? I may be late  
I am gone!..  
 
Hey you my doc give me a bed  
Am ma settle my bills I won't awake  
I will be gone till I engage  
Along with my ghost  
I will be fade..  
 
We gonna ride and ride along  
With all the mishaps it will entail  
I have a way to explore  
In this regard at your behest..  
 
Keep me alive and kid me alike  
Ironically we are alike  
Whenever I got tempted to pop  
I remember the time I was in chains..  
 
Gems master Jay I missed a beat  
Help me step a little bit me  
Java de Vu am Deja Vu  
I simulate and imitate  
Everyday!..  
 
Java's my world I got to go  
Hear me belove I know you hurt  
In the time you must relate  
Karma's a bitch!
I will amend  
Afterlife!..  
 
Circle around your papers around  
What goes around will come around  
Read up your notes when the sun rises  
Applaud with a round and go to bed  
When night falls..
