Nice Nasty

Nice Nasty

by Seah Greenhorn
(poem with copyright)

Nice Nasty
such a practiced game

the ultimate goal:
to drive victims insane

with words pleasant

then ending inane.

Of what benefit
to the Giver make?

Strips this one
of dignity
and class

their anger

as they speak


revealing envy
and a lack of confidence


No sense of their
true purpose

when all time
is spent

witty meanness

causing others
to defend

against bullying


to befriend.

Is this the way to love
and hatred end?

Religious Freedom or Human Rights

Religious Freedom or Human Rights

by Seah Greenhorn
(poem with copyright)


this should not a question be:
human rights and ethics to supersede

religious edicts not conforming
to human values and country laws adorning

citizens in every land?

since the Declaration of Human Rights dispenses this statement:

“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
They are endowed with reason and conscience
and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."

As the eagle projects then flies
higher than the naked eye to spy his flight
regal with majesty and pure delight

is the plight of imperfect man.

The vision is awesome,
even beautiful.

It touches the heart of loving souls.

Yet, this dream to behold
disappears. The destination


in a world grown cold.

Should not religion provide the key
to freedoms and rights?

Yes, liberty!

Depending upon which sovereignty
the leaders preach.

Not all gods are equal in the least degree.


to go to battle to demand
equality; to take a stand legally

Is an individual's right to fight for.

A privilege to humanity.

But, in the end...
when under the subjection of greed and power

do we really believe that true justice will stand?

It will stand!

Unification of races and nations has already begun!

In the past, began
when individuals started within themselves
to practice love

and encouraged others to do the same.

This start became the basis or foundation for the future claim:

An end to violence and hatred!
An end to war!

An end to wicked spirits controlling the world and making us sorely need to pray:

"Please end our suffering!
Inequality... no more!"

Yes, soon will arrive that blessed day
when righteousness will then hold sway.

Until that time we keep
at personal bay

any and all
who human rights do slay.

Do not let anger have its way.
Keep peace and pursue it!

Lay down animosity and bury it!

Let a King
clear the earth

of this total chaos
and complete

The battle is Christ's
and The Almighty's.

They alone have the power
to end all injustices

and establish

True Peace and Security

Sleep In Peace

Sleep In Peace
by Seah Greenhorn 
( Poem with copyright ) 

Maybe not
as a Madagascan sunset
day-flying moth,

but like a beautiful robin moth
or even a dull colored grease moth

drawn to flames

we question "why"
about the same:

Life then death?

Why brought into this game?

British historian Arnold Toynbee wrote
as We in united consent quote:

"FROM the moment of birth
there is the constant possibility
that a human being may die
at any moment.”

This thought brings us no glee or joyful mirth!

Added he: “And inevitably
this possibility
is going to become
an accomplished fact.”

In this past century

about 100, 000, 000 people in wars died
as tragic acts, 'including millions of innocent
men, women, and children'

making us anew sadly cry out:


"If a man dies,
can he live again?

I will wait all the days
of my compulsory service


my relief comes.

You will call, and I will answer you.
You will long for the work of your hands"

said Job, under utmost suffering
detailing the desire of the Creator to bring

dead ones back to life.

Reversing Adam's unforgivable sin.

Further promising:

"And the last enemy,

is to be brought to nothing."

Just think what this means!

No more graves or funerals.
Just endless life and joyful blessings!

"In this mountain he will do away with the shroud
that is enveloping all the peoples
and the covering that is woven
over all the nations.
(groaning and moaning aloud)

He will swallow up death forever,

And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah
will wipe away the tears from all faces.

The reproach of his people
he will take away from all the earth,
For Jehovah himself has spoken it."

All the races, obedient and loyal,
will everlastingly benefit.

Until that time
when He calls their name

Sleep in peace, you victims,
as you feel no shame.
