Poetry Contest

Destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.
YOU are Karma.
SPEAK as Karma.

What are you doing to someone that you know? This can be good or bad.  

Only new writes. Two entries allowed.

Im the redemption of a principle of rebellion,
encompassing the in between of a fastly and forever expanding everything.
  im the payment, paid in full-but past due, of all future movement.(though i may have robbed Peter to do it).
  Im the arousal of the single point to form lines, then letters, to incite riots....
     the diet of a pristine parasitic existence.
  Im the personification of the pushed panic button,
      the utter detachment, and the bumrush to the escape hatch.
Latch key kid of a rolling stone,
  I am the OM(A-U-M)with tourettes syndrome, intoning every conceivable perverted reverberation of creation.
  Every monster mutant and orchestrated mastery owes to me its moment of self discovery.
  In short i am the karmic retribution of entropy that broke bad.
Im the price of boredom,
Im the bellows and brimstone and bedlam... but beauty,
  of that initial yet infinite unacceptance of non being.
Im the unscripted dialogue for the actors practicing for the enactment of the big bang, but backwards.
Inside every syllable, whether communicated or confused,
 is a stowed away seedling of me.
Each contrived "truth","reason" and "meaning", will eventually shed its clothing...a naked prey to my needing.

Karma's a bitch
and you know that
it's like an itch
that you cant scratch

Try to do good
my karma will help
But it could be bad
if you put courtesy on the shelf

Some people don't believe
but they say karma's a bitch and
what gets me is that
these people don't belive in superstition

So Karma whether good or bad
can be a bitch and all around you
Mess your whole day up
or have you loving life like u should do!

Karmic Law

I am law unto you
for what you have taken
you shall return
in two-fold or more

For all the lies
you spoke and tell
You shall be justly rewarded
by tales against yourself

Weep not in despair
O victim of slander
For those who do unto you
will have it done unto them

The circle of life
The wheel of fortune
will also give
to those who have given

What goes around
comes around
Its the law of existence
do not be engulfed in arrogance

Remember the crown you wear
the regalia you hold
means naught
to the grim reaper

Neither your intelligence
Nor your money
will buy you a minute more
when its time to say goodbye

Thats Karma
to live and be birthed
again, to live
to die, a circle of cycles

Through these cycles
you will repay
for unfulfilled promises
and wishes of the past

The debts of life
will be carried forward
towards your next life
at times with interest.

Grace - I really like your poem on KARMA

KARMA

Whenever I did something right - I was never praised

Whenever I did a good deed - well you know the saying

NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED

I saw other people get away with things

If I did that....I would be SEVERLY PUNISHED

I could never explain why I got the misery in life

I used to worship regularly at our services

Pray to God, follow the TEN COMMANDMENTS

Watch the faithless and the nasty get all the goodies

Finally - a PHILOSOPHER..yes a real one EXPLAINED IT ALL TO ME

She said: ....SOME PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH MURDER


Now that I am older...this is what I know

People are often ungrateful to the  very people who helped them

The innocent are jailed for crimes they NEVER committed

Only to be set free, TWENTY years later, by DNA technology

The people above  you in a HIERARCHICAL INSTITUTION

Probably did NOT get there on MERIT alone

They take no prisoners, BODIES are hidden well

You can live with a spouse for many many years

When you find out YOU HAVE BEEN LIVING WITH A STRANGER

Sleeping in the same bed, having children together...it does NOT MEAN A THING


Finally the only way I could find a solution to this

Was to question the MONOTHEISTIC PREMISE

Which did NOT BELIEVE in KARMA

Nor in REINCARNATION

Regardless of the weight of the evidence

Pointing to that common phrase

What goes around comes around....

Does it really?  My ex lives a wealthy life

Life has not PUNISHED HIM

Life has PUNISHED ME

The only way I can reconcile this discrepancy

Is to believe in FAR EASTERN THEOLOGY

I am a human on a SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

To pay for the WRONGS I did in my PAST LIFE

Once I die...I will return to start to learn once again

That life is a mystery, KARMA describes our actions

DHARMA is the cosmic norm and if one goes against it

One’s DHARMIC PATH in the NEXT life is determined by their past KARMA
