today i'm not going to do any poetry.
today i'm not going to bullshit or be creative with syntax
or do anything for strictly aesthetic purposes or approval for
artistic merit.............................................
i'm just going to talk.


to me, true poetry is not worrying about what lines ryhme
what love and dove and god up above have to do with each other

to me poetry is and always has been about ideas ,true feelings ,our desires,our hardships,our idealism or whatever

and i know.....you're probably saying OH GOD ! what is this fool doing? boring me to death?
change your channel buddy.......because you are psycho!


well if you're starting to get bored.........what the hell am i going to do about that?

the thing i like about this site .....or should i say about u2
is not their music, not their politics or religion or even their look.


if you're a fan you probably saw bono on a episode of oprah.

YES.........................O P R A H!!!!

AND ON THAT SHOW he didn't sing or preach politics , although politics did play a role in the show.
he didn't plug his best of cd.

all he did was.......................talk

he talked about his children

he talked about the humanitarian efforts he and his wife ali were a part of during the eighties......................and the continuing contributies to charities and organizations that mean something special then and now.

some of you or maybe all of you say that angst is something we deal with as adolescents. anger is passe. love is our key.

but has it ever been that simple? no , right?

we say things ..................as children:

" iwant to be a fireman, mom"
" i want to be an athlete and earn mad money"
" i want the ho's and the fellas to know i'm the MAN!
" I WANT TO BE A COP.
I WANT TO BE FAMOUS INLINE SKATER
i want to be an actress
i want to know if daddy is coming home
i want to know why my mom doesn't love me
i want to know why my uncle, my priest, my mentor..........................did the things he did to me!
i want to know why people fight and kill
i want to know why they call me faggot
i want to know why i can't stop crying
i want to know why slaves still exist
i want to know why palestinians hate us so much
i want to know how many men that slut is going to do during her lifetime
i want to know if i'll ever get off public assistance
i want to know why those bums don't get a job and stop the taxes from freaking eating out the bottom of my wallet
i want i want i want..............................................




BONO SAID HE WAS ANGRY
ANGRY AT THE LEGACY THIS WORLD LEAVES TO HIS CHILDREN
TO ANYONE'S CHILDREN.


HE SAID THAT AMERICANS ARE NOT THE CAPITALIST PIGS THAT CERTAIN COUNTRIES HAVE MADE US TO BE

WE ARE A DEMOCRACY , WE ARE OPPORTUNITY, WE ARE FREEDOM

BUT WHAT HE SAID WAS THAT AMERICA WAS AN .........IDEA

OR IDEAL ......WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT.

WE ARE GENEROUS PEOPLE WHO GIVE , GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY

AN IDEA OR IDEAL THAT HAS ALWAYS HELD PROMISE TO IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES WHOSE CHILDREN WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WONDER,, TO HOPE,,,,,,,TO FEEL

TO DREAM..........................................................

ARTISTS DREAM . PEOPLE DREAM


I AM AN ARTIST............................AND I DREAM

I COME FROM A FAMILY OF HEALTH CARE PROVIDER'S :

MY MOM
MY SISTER
ARE REGISTERED NURSES
MY DAD WORKS AS A LABAROTORY TECHNICIAN

I AM THE ONLY ARTIST IN MY IMMEDIATE FAMILY
MY COUSINS AND UNCLES AUNTS ALL LIVE IN THE PHILIPPINES

I WENT THERE BACK IN 1982
TO VISIT THEM SAY HI............HOW'S IT HANGING?

AND THE ONE THING I NOTICED COMPARING MYSELF TO MY RELATIVES
WAS THE DIVERGING IDEALS WE HAD
PHILLIPINOS THERE AND HERE IN THE UNITED STATES
ARE VERY HAPPY PEOPLE.
THEY MAY NOT HAVE ALOT OF MONEY,
SOME WILL NEVER KNOW WHAT OPPORTUNITY MEANS
SOME WILL GIVE BIRTH TO CHILDREN WHEN THEY ARE CHILDREN THEMSELVES
SOME WILL REALIZE THEIR ASPIRATIONS OF COMING TO AMERICA

THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY, LAND OF FREEDOM................................LAND OF HOPE.

AND ALL I HAD TO SHARE WITH THEM .......WAS MY ANGER, MY FEARS...................MY INSECURITIES, MY SELFISHNESS

MY SHAME.
BUT HELL I WAS A KID
MOST KIDS ARE SPOILED GROWING UP
BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MUCH
HERE IN THE STATES

WHILE THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT THEY'RE NEXT MEAL
WE'RE WONDERING IF WE HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY GROCERIES AND THAT STUPID NINTENDO GAME MY BRAT WANTS

WE DON'T KNOW LOVE SO WE PAY FOR THE COMPANY OF BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE

WE DON'T WANT CHEAP CLOTHES WHEN WE BUY ARMANI

" OH LYNDA I MET THE CUTEST GUY!
HIS FAMILY IS RICH! HE IS WORKING FOR HIS DOCTORATE
AND WE HAVE AWESOME SEX!

" I'M JUST DOING MY THANG .....YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
I'M THE REAL DEAL......ALL THE HONEYS IN MY HAREM GIVE AWESOME HEAD
CAUSE....WHAT CAN I SAY? I'M THE MAN!

I AINT NO FAGGOT LIKE THAT BROTHER WHO GETS NO PLAY
CAUSE HE GOT HIS THING BUT HE PLUGS IT UP SOME GUY'S ASS!

I WANT MY MAN TO BE A REAL MAN................NOT SOME SNOT NOSED MAN WANNABE WHO STILL LET'S HIS MOMMA DO HIS DIRTY CLOTHES!!

I WANT TO PUT ALL THE KILLERS AND RAPISTS AND MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE WHERE THEY CAN'T HARM OUR DECENT, LAW ABIDING............WHOLESOME PURITY THAT DEFINES OUR DEMOCRACY

THEY ARE GARBAGE
THEY ARE WASTE
THEY SHOULD DIE



WE LOVE BONO!! WE LOVE U2!!!

WE LOVE THEIR MUSICAL GROWTH AND EXPERIMENTATION!!

WE LOVE THEIR ALBUMS AND ALL THE CHARITIES THEY ARE A PART
OF!!!!!

OH GOD !! ISAW THEM IN NEW YORK

ACHTUNG BABY ROCKS!!!!!

THEY ARE awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



but WHAT IS IT ABOUT THEM THAT MAKES THEM " AWESOME"?

THINK ABOUT IT ..................AND " SICY" DON'T YOU DARE DELETE THIS ENTRY!!!!

I DON'T CARE IF YOU THINK I'M A STUPID , IMPULSIVE.....ARROGANT ASSHOLE.

BECAUSE I AM N O T THAT SIMPLISTIC!

YOU SHOULD ALREADY KNOW THAT ABOUT PEOPLE!!!!



U2 ARE " TRUE " ARTISTS.
THEY'RE NOT ABOUT PLUGGING OR PROMOTING THEIR MUSIC.

THEY ARE ARTISTS IN THE SENSE ......THAT THEY USE THE MEDIUM THEY WERE GIVEN TO " COMMUNICATE":

THEIR PASSIONS
THEIR IDEALS
THEIR HOPE FOR HUMANITY

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT U2 AREN'T THAT TALENTED

THEY REPEAT THEMSELVES

THEY'RE OLD AND STUCK IN A MOMENT OF CREATIVITY


I DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT.

I CARE THAT THEY CARE

THEY REALLY CARE ..........................THEY DON'T VIEW THEMSELVES AS HEROS

BONO SAYS THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN THESE COUNTRIES.......................ARE THE HEROS!

THEY LIVE FOR EACH DAY
THEY LIVE FOR EACH OTHER
THEY DIE WITHOUT EVER KNOWING WHAT AN EDUCATION IS.


BOYS ARE MEN WHO NEVER GROW UP

AND MEN ARE BOYS WHO REGRET WHAT THEY NEVER DID

BUT I BELIEVE IN DREAMS

THAT'S WHAT ARTISTS DO.........THEY COMMUNICATE THEIR DREAMS

DREAMS ARE AS TANGIBLE AS ANY COMMODITY
IT'S ONLY USE COMES FROM THE TIME WE INVEST IN THEM

BUT DREAMS ...........PASS
FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT
DREAMS CHANGE OR THEY BECOME MODIFIED TO SUIT THE DEMANDS OF THE COMMERCIAL WORLD


OR THE WORST THING THAT CAN HAPPEN AND DOES HAPPEN....................................


DREAMS DIE.




DON'T SAY YOU LOVE U2 JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK THEY'RE AVANTE GARD

DON'T SAY YOU LOVE THEM BECAUSE THESE OLD FOGIES ARE STILL CRANKING OUT THE HITS.

DON'T TELL THE MODERATOR OF THIS FORUM TO BOOT ME OUT OF THIS FORUM OR SITE.....BECAUSE YOU THINK I'M CRUDE OR DELUSIONAL.

THAT'S TOO EASY...................ARE YOU LISTENING..............
............................SICY?


I FEEL EVERYTHING.

I HATE
I LOVE
I DESIRE
I FEEL JEALOUSY
I WANT REVENGE
I WANT PEACE
I HATE HYPOCRISY
I AM A HYPOCRITE
I FEEL FOR THE MENTALLY CHALLENGED
I CRY WHEN BOYS BECOME MEN TO JUSTIFY THEIR " MANHOOD
I CRY WHEN GIRLS BECOME WOMEN OVERNIGHT BECAUSE OF A STUPID MISTAKE
I WANT TO FIGHT
I WANT TO KILL
I WANT TO TEACH KIDS HOW TO DRAW FAIRIES AND SUPERHEROS
I WANT TO LEAVE MY MARK JUST LIKE ANY OTHER SHMOE ON THIS PLANET
I WANT MONEY TO BUY CLOTHES
I WANT ELECTRONICS
I WANT TO MAKE THIS PERSON SMILE
I WANT TO LET THE WOMAN I LIKE KNOW THAT TRUE PASSIONS
DO EXIST EVEN IN EGOTISTICAL MEN

IWANT MEN TO BE WITH MEN
WOMEN TO BE WITH WOMEN
LOVE TO FIND IT'S PLACE IN TRUE COMPATIBILITY

WHAT THE HELL DO YOU EXPECT?


I AM HUMAN.

A HUMAN WHO DOESN'T WANT HIS OWN DREAMS.............

TO DIE.

THIS IS MY POEM.

A LONG MOTHER FU**** ISN'T IT?

* SEE........"SICY" SEE HOW I CENSORED MYSELF?

AND YOU THOUGHT I HAD NO SELF CONTROL!!!!!!




BUT SERIOUSLY......EVERYTHING HAS IT'S PLACE......EVEN MY ' GIBBERISH'

YOU SHOULD KNOW .......... I DON'T WRITE THINGS FOR SHOCK VALUE.



BONO DOESN'T.



THINK ABOUT IT.

there's a difference between artistic integrity and sdfsnf;fn;jkgfn


if you're so comfortable knowing the difference, then show it.



and don't smart off to the mods or admins. we aren't shutting out your artistry, we are closing "asdflskjfheifd"

Your jibberish has no place here. You can rant and rave all you want in Zoo Confessionals.. or Lemonade Stand but NOT HERE.

ARE YOU DEAF???

I'll tell you right now, you're going to lose access to this forum if you keep this up.

It's your choice.

I try to have a lot of patience and understanding when it comes to people, ok.. but when people dont listen to me and dont heed my warnings, I get upset, and when Sicy gets upset, people get banned.

It's your choice.

CHILL OUT.

what really fucking sucks, what really pisses me off about this is, there are so many good, deserving threads in here worthy of attention (you should know u2aregods, you had a few yourself at one point) and yet this is what gets all the views, this is what gets the buzz

and guess what, in over two years that this placed has existed, you are the only one who has managed to get a thread closed here, and how many has it been now? 1, 2, 3, 4... ? I've lost track, please stop.

So you're comparing yourself to Bono?



Nice to see someone so humble.

And yes, I couldn't agree more - everything does have it's place, including your gibberish. The problem is deciding what place your gibberish should inhabit, and most of us seem to think it's not this place. At least not if you insist on ignoring the mod's requests.
