Tastes of life's pleasures,
tastes of life's bitterness.
Travels in the world over in the mind,
travels in the minds of the poor.
The path gets weary without compassion
the burden gets heavy without a soul.
Where are your ears to the cries of man,
where are your eyes to the injustice of man.
Love yourself enough to give to others,
there are less fortunate than yourself.
They who now taste the dust of kings,
they who have tasted sweetness of success.
Now swallow pride shattered by the streets,
for this day must mark a new beginning.
Commence the opening of minds and hearts,
commence the death of destitution.
We need not have sight to see the tears,
for we taste the salt upon our parched lips.
Timothy Michael DiVito c1983
I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
