Welcome to my poetry arcade. On this home page, you will be transported to the realms of insightful poems. Here is an example of my poems.

How Far, How Much by Chief FAMA

It is not how fast you can run    /      But, what art you bring into running

It is not how far you've been gone    /      But, the quality fo the distance

It is not just the knowledge    /      But, how the knowledge enriches others

It is not just what works    /      But, what works best

Living is what life makes out of you    /      Life is what you make out of living.

Writing is fun. That means poetry and prose writing can be as relaxing as one wants them to be. Writing can be rewarding, too. Writing can also be a learning process. Through writing, one can learn about many things. For instance, I learn a lot about myself by writing. I know that writing elicits deep thinking. With deep thoughts, I learn a lot about whatever topic I set out to write about once the trigger for the writing is in full swing. Though, the writing might be punctuated with different stages of labor—labor as in creation, and as in the following poem: 

The Products of my Womb

By Chief FAMA

Special and imaginative

They are uniquely different

Because, they were differently created

By different creators.

They comfort

At different levels

They soothe

For different reasons.

Evolution of the first is with discomfort and endurance

Conjurement of the second is with dedication and perseverance

Both are at risk

On the physical level

And, on the cognitive level.

Both have monumental effects

On whomever they come across

Both travel--land, sea, air

But one travels farther and faster than the other.

Life expectations and life spans

Predetermined for one

Post determined for the other

Life without end—only for one of them.

The feelings of giving birth to them

Are feelings of joy; feelings of mixed emotions

The motherly prayers for their lives and successes

Are as far apart as day and night.

The products of the womb

Womb being metaphoric

Product being interpretive.

They are all my children.

One with blood; the other without blood

Who are they, the products of my womb?
