    Dear members
    I have entered poem contest. Please read/rate. Thank you

    It is titled " Impalpable dreams"

    Hope is the seed I sow to grow a tree of dreams.
    Like a waterfall that plunges into abysmal depths I feed it optimism.
    Hope blossoms inside the abysmal abyss.
    In autumn I harvest my garden which is overflowing with fragrance and colors of impalpable dreams.

    Winters Beauty

    Like steam locomotives, it's a tangible breath,
    Belching plumes, akin to the heaviest of chain smokers.
    Each bud & blade consumed by hungry jack himself
    Kissed completely with an ice cold dust

    White wash splattered with contempt,
    Smother motionless cars that slept sound by night.
    Into window corners frost creeps silent,
    Embedded with a Dickensian slant.

    A milky sun without power to burn,
    Relegates itself to a mere shadow caster
    And a Scooby-doo mist engulfs the long par three
    From weather beaten green too divot strewn tee

    This picture painted drowns many a heart in fear
    But for myself, it's a pinnacle to round off the year
    Crisp chilled air heralds the onset of snow
    It’s a perfect topping for a beautiful winter

    Hey people...


    I loathe my existence.
    Can’t stand the picture in the mirror
    In my eyes.
    My Self in the mirror
    In the eyes.

    I loathe my presence
    Here and now.
    And my past future
    And my future past.

    All lives and livings
    Here are together
    Beside me
    Inside me.
    And I wonder
    And I secretly know
    All vain
    All worn out
    All pasts.

    Loud I quaver
    To my inner demons…
    What is being after all?

    Heyyy~ This is a poem I came up with for school. It is about the freedom in the USA. Please rate. :)
    Let freedom rain
    Take away all the pain
    Let freedom ring
    All the people will sing

    Abraham Lincoln freed all the slaves
    So they could have their own ways
    Finally freed from their masters
    Who we call as bastards

    Martin Luther King had a dream
    To unite all the different teams
    So no one would be separated
    And feel like they are hated

    Rosa Parks sat on a chair
    Waiting for someone to care
    At last, she got taken away
    And so no one felt okay

    Susan Anthony and [Name](Forgot her name XD) campaigned
    And all the rights women gained
    We are now able to vote
    And no more need to hope

    Thomas Jefferson made the Declaration of Independence
    And attracted the citizens' attendance.
    We all have rules and rights
    Which we need to follow every night

    Let freedom rain
    Take away all the pain
    Let freedom ring
    And all the people will sing~

    Cotton wool clouds, splay cotton wool shrouds
    Over roof tops, streets and fields.
    It's a magical sight, to see a landscape so white
    Once repressed joy and fun it now yields.

    Snowballs we throw, with the fresh fallen snow
    So cold are our feet, hands and cheeks.
    But nobody cares, God's answered our prayers
    Let's hope it snows for weeks upon weeks.

    There are bells to be rung, along with carols to be sung
    It's Christmas time once again.
    Huddled pensioners whine, as they sip their mulled wine
    Saying 'next year let's drink this in Spain.'

    Past Christmas' we relive, through home movies we sieve
    Laughing at how much we've all changed.
    Their faces a treat, when they ask for the receipt
    Saying 'I love it, I just need it exchanged.'

    But this Christmas card scene, it's not worth a bean
    Without someone special with whom you can share.
    Keep close all you hold dear and cherish each year
    Because memories such as these are too rare.

    Mother 'o' mother of mine,
    Who will forget thee...
    Earth and heaven infuses in thee,
    Ye suffers with shaping pine.
    Mother 'o' mother of mine...

    Thy love, bliss from heaven,
    Thy words, a calm breeze
    Ye the morning sun shine.....
    Mother 'o' mother of mine,

    Holiest among holy ye be
    Magical music thy lullaby
    Thy lap, my cushion fine
    Thankless to thee, a supine
    Mother 'o' mother of mine,
    Who will forget thee...
    Aftab Alam
