Mouth of the Beast

Suzy Kassem poetry
MOUTH OF THE BEAST

The sea was angry,
Smashing anything that came its
Way as it crashed onto the shore.
And my thoughts were thrashing,
Because I didn't know if I really loved him,
Or if he truly loved me,
And if our union was worth the time anymore.
So I told him to jump into the dangerous waters
To prove his love for me.
And without counting to three,
He tore off his pants and peeled off his sleeves,
Then ran into the ferocious sea -
Where the waves swallowed him and spit him out
They bashed him a hundred times,
And forced him underneath to swallow the salt.
He struggled to get out.
Gasping for air, he began to shout out his love for me,
And that's when I knew it was he who meant nothing to me -
For had my heart truly loved him,
It would have never sent him running straight
Into the mouth of a beast.

A Heart of Lapis

Heart of Lapis poem

 
A HEART OF LAPIS

The most beautiful stones adorn my neck
Like an Ancient Egyptian collar.
Two glistening balls of onyx sit on top,
Followed by a double stretch of coral.
At the center is a lapis heart,
Deeper in color than the Red Sea waters.
And I am so grateful for this heavenly gift;
This precious necklace is
My daughter.

The Three Bees

poem suzy kassem

THE THREE BEES

A young boy once asked
A wealthy beekeeper:
“What is the secret of
Your success?”
The beekeeper simply smiled
And replied:

“To be successful,
One has to be one of three bees:
The queen bee,
The hardest working bee,
Or the bee that does not fit in.
One success is inherited,
And the next one is earned.
While the last one is
Self-sought,
Self-served,
And happens on its own
Terms.”

“And which bee are you?”
Asked the boy.
The beekeeper then wiped
The sweat from his head
And said:
“The last may seem the riskiest,
But the glory of achievement
Is the most rewarding.
Freedom always comes at a high cost,
But only when you are
Your own boss,
Can you truly
Afford it.”

Hymn of the Divine Dandelion

Suzy Kassem dandelion poetry






























HYMN OF THE DIVINE DANDELION 

I am born as the sun, 
But then turn into the moon, 
As my blonde hairs turn 
Grayish-white and fall
To the ground, 
Only to be buried again, 
Then to be born again, 
Into a thousand suns 
And a thousand 
Moons.

Music of the Universe


MUSIC OF THE UNIVERSE

Without the orchestra of the universe,
There would be no ether. 
And without its instrumentation
By the ether, 
There would be no waves. 
And without any waves, 
There would be no sound. 
And without sound, 
There would be no music. 
And without music, 
There would be no life. 
And without a life force, 
There would be no matter. 
But it does not matter - 
Because what is matter, 
If there is no light?

The Four Heavenly Fountains

THE FOUR HEAVENLY FOUNTAINS BY SUZY KASSEM
 
THE FOUR HEAVENLY FOUNTAINS

 Laugh, I tell you
And you will turn back
The hands of time.

Smile, I tell you
And you will reflect
The face of the divine.

Sing, I tell you
And all the angels will sing with you!

Cry, I tell you
And the reflections found in your pool of tears -
Will remind you of the lessons of today and yesterday
To guide you through the fears of
Tomorrow.

The Sky Is Not the Limit. Beyond the Universe Is.

The sky is not the limit. Beyond the universe is.
The number of ways to live in one lifetime is limitless. So why limit yourself? The sky is not the limit. Beyond the universe is. -- Suzy Kassem

Cause and Effect

suzy kassem poem cause and effect

CAUSE AND EFFECT

 
You can give a man who has
Never given you a good word,
Volumes of knowledge.
And you can give a man who
has never given you a gift,
A thousand gifts.
You can give that same man
who has never given you a blessing,
A thousand blessings.
And you can offer that same man
who has never offered a hand to help
You grow,
Seeds to help him grow a garden.
And while you have never seen true
Kindness from his direction,
You still continuously offer to help him up -
Even though in the end,
He only wants to be the hand that
Pulls you down.
Do not worry, my friends.
Cause and effect was written by
The stars of the universe.
He who passes suffering onto others,
Will also have that suffering passed
Onto his own children.
Gifts he feels he should have in the
Next lifetime will be unobtainable.
And the help he needs to grow in the
Next lifetime will be unavailable.
And the people he cuts down that
Were good to him,
Will cut him down in the next lifetime.
What goes around does come back
Again,
Even through your children.
There is a vibrational effect
In every action,
Just as there is
A vibration that rings
From every letter
In every word.
No cause occurs without effect
And no effect occurs without cause.
No unjust action goes without penalty
And no action or thought
Flows unnoticed
Throughout
The universe.

Meet Buckminister Fuller



Buckminster Fuller was a heavyweight inventor and visionary. We don't hear much about him because of some of his "controversial" opinions, but he was a genius. For example, he once said, "We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist.”

By this, he means that we are programmed from the beginning of our lives to be part of a rat race, working for rat captains, for a heavily-controlled and structured rat system. Just because somebody didn't go to school or contribute to the system, does not mean they can't be a great mind and asset to mankind. We spend too much time trying to earn a living that we have no time to do anything else. When we work for a corporation, our ideas are used to benefit that organization - not the greater good. Sometimes being outside of the system can do wonders to the mind and modern inventions, rather than being confined within it. This is why many of the best artists, musicians, filmmakers, inventors, and writers were all college dropouts or abandoned school altogether, to explore the world and harness their skills on their own.  And because their skills were developed outside the formulas taught within the system, they became known innovators in their fields. Thus proving, that being part of the system enslaves the mind and greatly limits the imagination by enslaving it to form. Form is a burden to the mind that sees no limits. Form is a prison for the soul who sees possibilities outside the lines and wishes to test them.

Nobody should have to work 40 hours a week just to be guaranteed water, a roof over their head, and food on the table. Water should be free and a man should be free to pick food from nature. And, he should be free to build his own house on God's land with his own hands. Yet everything has been gathered and controlled by the system, turning mankind's natural birthright, which is access to the world's resources, into commodities to be bought for labor. This is slavery disguised as freedom.
