And when I die
When I lie in my casket,
don’t lay flowers, but relate memories,
and hymns of the journey taken,
and poems of joy and laughter.
For in them, I delight greatly.
And when they lower me down,
don’t cry, for I am not gone,
I will be there always beside you
as the chill of the wind
and the warmth of the sun.
When you look up,
I will be shining brightly upon you.
Don’t cry, but be merry.
And when the time comes,
let me go, and hold on
to the loving hand of
the one that will love you then.

These verses contains religious overtones, but hope you like it. Let me know if you need anything.
My unmowed lawns.
Lush Greenness, awaits the scythe of the autumn.
Heading to the fate of the abandoned house,
that reached the prime of life.
Everything ends. And,
we have much to bid adieu,
the things we thought have stored for life.

I look at you with despise.
I measure you with contempt.
The more I hate you, the more you tower over me.
When will you learn to abridge restrain on someone?
Give me room to grow, and soon I will learn to love you too.

Alleviate my being
From the troubles of this world.
Lift me high above
The clouds of cares and worries.
Free my soul
And let me float in the embrace of your love.

I had messed up big time while changing some settings, but maybe it was for good.
As you noticed lately, my posts were mostly poems and essays. And my personal side story was not written about. And so, I was thinking about it for long now.
So I have started a new blog:
Len Kamei – of me and everything else.
In which I will write about personal stuffs.
And hereafter in this blog, all my poetry and essays (however illogical) will be posted here.
So this is an update:
Oh and the URL : lenkamei.wordpress.com no longer works (I messed up with the settings). And I am mourning the loss. Luckily I got all my posts from there, but the URL is no longer usable.
Anyway, please continue to walk with me as we learn from each other.
A Summon for Innocence
A distant sound cried,
That, they had killed him.
Some people mourned,
But most were indifferent.
Was he something that,
They were better off without?
Some say, he did retard the growth,
Of knowledge, good and bad.
Now, he is killed,
And long forgotten,
Only to be weighed,
In citation to old ones past.
The new bearings, without him,
Is bent much too early,
Growing sensitive to perversion,
Malice and horror.
Protect them, hide them,
Bring them under the fold.
And most of all,
Summon back the innocence.
