Sleeping silences and shattered calm
You came into my life, a light in the dark
Brilliantly blazing with enchanting charm
With a fiery inferno you melt my heart
Wherever you are is hearth and home
Where my weary soul is never alone
A twilight forest for you I wander
You have my heart, my love, my honor
My fairy queen with unearthly beauty
I give my life fairly...
Sticks & Stones
Words of deception
Void of self-reflection
Taught a false reality
Why how can this be
This is all I’ve known
Blind leading the blind
So I had to find out on my own
Like a chemical or a poison
False realities and hypocrisy
Sifting through it all
With my eyes wide open
A closed mouth don’t get feed
So that’s why I started asking...
(“Morningstar or Deer of the Dawn”)
Who would you be, if I knew who you were?
That YHWH must come first in your heart, that much is sure;
faithful and loving, that my heart be secure.
A warrior, a princess, and fearless in faith,
with wisdom and insight... trusting husband in the gates.
For the road that I walk is a hard one to bear,
the greatest of prices - you must be...
Hours upon hours, I exchange blows with the boy growing into
A man standing in front of his mirror,
Mental deterioration as I analyze and criticize the image
Reflecting back into my eyes,
In my mind, insecurities became superior, confidence became
My mental residence is in need of new interior,
Outside opinions I am in fear of,
A huge role that was played to perfection, outside opinion...
Benevolence and faith it takes
For friendship forged anew,
The mysteries of destiny
Then come gradually into view,
When the universe has crossed our paths
And our stars have been aligned,
We’ll find if all has been in vain
Or is righteous and divine,
For time reveals the truth or things
And the contents of...
I find myself wishing for a friendly speck of hope;
Someone who can let me know,
That my heart is alive and well like a stethoscope.
I raise my head high toward the sky,
Despite the weight of my fate, or the slop on my plate.
I march forward toward another day,
As time passes by, and I search for words to pray.
The heart of a lion;...
In all my eagerness, for success to be reached
I remain poised, as still as the sign that says
Stop no longer distracted by the noise…
Hearing the world more clearly, a melody I can’t
forget, the universal signs & my thoughts collide
as I try not to slip…How often do these raindrops
drip & puddles form on the ground. Sometimes
I stare at my reflection through them...
Mylz Tha Damned
We are down here. Down here we all float. In the belly of the beast, in case you ain’t know. They call this place Hell. I’ve come to call it home. If you’re scared go to church. I’m where the wild things roam. OMG. Thee ambitions of the chief. To gain the whole world, and give it back to my peeps. For a vision I’m crying...
Praying to God,
This is my clarity.
Inquiring boldly, “Lord my God’;
I see a woman of color.
Though I am alone, I have God.
Am I worthy of friends; what pleasure is in them?
Though men treat them as idols’
While many mistreat them.
To such I will not partake
Expose not my feathers
To increase my potency.
God, only send what I can handle...
Life is what we make of it
Whether free or in prison
Life is happiness to some
Or just another day gone
Life is work to pay our bills
Or hope for a decent meal
Life is home to a loving family
Or to your cell and ugly celly
Life is a night watching our favorite movie
Or living a life that should be a horror movie
Life is a place where everything is perfect...
Dedicated to every woman striking a pose in my picture collection…
Beauty Before Me
Once upon a moment we shared,
That look in her eye, do I dare?
In a quiet place, our hearts be still,
A rush to judgment, but was she there?
God forsake my wandering mind
Or could it be that sparked divine?
What questions mill beneath affinity,
Will he rush or bide his time?
My desire begins...
I am looking for someone to chit chat
Who shares from laughs and cries
Someone who will never play get back
& to walk this path with side by side
A guide at times, friend and companion till the end
Someone who will speak their mind
But isn’t demanding & can somewhat bend
Someone to lend a shoulder when needed
And kisses and hugs galore
Someone to believe in who...
While dreaming one night, I had dreamt
A tale to tell…
I dreamt I saw an Angel. She wasn’t looking
Her body bruised and battered; wings ripped
I saw she could barely walk, She was tired
And all so worn.
Walking over to the Angel, I had asked how
This could be?
She could only look up at me. As she did her best
To smile. As she said...
This time that I’ve wasted is my biggest regret…
Spent in a place, that I’ll never forget…
Just sitting and thinking about the things that I’ve done…
It’s just me and my hard driven guilt…
Behind a wall of emptiness that I allowed to be built…
Trapped in my body with reality suddenly in my face…
Full of remorse and stuck in this place…
Now memories of the past, flash...
The thunder crashes above me,
betokening the wrath of God.
The rain falls around me,
but I can’t see it,
but rain betokens
the sadness of God.
Another Boethius is dying,
like so many before
in the sad annals
of this Earth’s history.
Could he see the night sky?
How can one live without the stars?
Without the moon,
without sunlight, without
People and Prison
People in the world wake up on a bed. People in prison wake up feeling dread. God remembers all the days you left.
People in the world answer their cell phones, people in prison the answer is gone, for God the answer is you're not alone.
People in the world eat in restaurants, people in prison eat where there's a lot, God sees forget-me-nots.
People in the world go to clothing stores,...
A Fathers Prayer
The longing in my life is not a prayer for me, in the deep watches of the night I pray not selfishly.
I lift her life to you, her heart I know you love. I cannot protect her now below, please protect her from above.
You see her needs as I cannot, you hear her prayers I know, you feel her tears upon your cheek, please hold her as I go.
No man could love her as I do, no heart could miss her so....
A freezing wind chills the air around the ice shrouded mound.
There at the pinnacle, a forlorn, dying oak stands tall,
Skeletal branches void of leaves clawing skyward abound.
Unloved and forgotten, yet refusing ever to fall.
Don’t doubt how I know of this desolate place dead as bone,
For the visage shaped by the bark is my very own.
Shackled within my eternal winter, inside I cry
Unintentionally I’ve fallen and possibly can’t get back up
times when we would cross paths I’d ponder if my feelings were based upon pure lust
No…They were based on love
Time suspended as I think about your arms
How intelligent you are and how you...
The wind whistles wonderful melodies
Melodious and dulcet
Who knew that the air up there
Could sound so beautifully
I gaze at the beautiful night sky
A beautiful bright star that’s
One in a million
In the firmament full of stars
With diverse dispositions, appearance, and brilliance
That brilliantly appear right before my eyes
And I knew that...
I’m so symbolic
Broke the 1st rule of fight club
Sacred truths so mystery
I don’t even know it.

The Song Bird Parable
Look inside of my cage
And you will find shade, only in reliance…
For I am a caged song bird
Whose face drowns in torrents, but yet I sing!
Perched on my swing,
I flap and flutter in temperance
My bandaged wings, hurt!
From the fowler’s sling, the foulest thing…
But, but…My crown is king and kingdom
Sky, like, you can...
Ultra violet rays high light my high life,
Giving existence to fortitude in clarity….
Through the similarity to which I stand
In my position of light and likeness,
I find that my growth through experience
In life’s cycles heightens
My over standing without the
My illumination begins at a peak,
In relation to the highest form of...
chipped paint, rusty doors
stained steel, and cracked floors,
a black rose
rose for an encore.
Rooted by tears of spilled dreams,
and the soil of being deemed
unenviable for life’s theme;
yet, blossomed, a rose has risen.
Nurtured by the rays of hope on the horizon,
a fellow petal’s guidance,
I yearn for a woman
With tender bounteous bosom
And strawberry curls
Flowing free and unfurled
Over cheeks of rose petals
Adorned with freckles
She wears a woven red dress
Clothing her milky flesh
She glimmers an angelic smile
Her kiss is gentle yet wild
Your nighttime dazzles while your stars blind
In reserved fine-ness your highness…
Though your beauty is in every eyes beholder
To those who can look up and define ya…
Under ya starry skies I wander…
Umbrella over me I’m under, it would seem
More involved through my telescopes locked in...
Dreams of Reality?
Last night I had the most beautiful dream
It was so real or so it did seem
I woke up from my slumber and a visitor appeared
It was you standing there, your eyes filled with tears
I pulled you close and whispered, “Baby don’t cry”
“I’ll always love you til the day I die”.
I held you and kissed the tears from your face
The tears dissolved and a smile took their place
Spawn Of Me (NDN Goddess)
In my mind, where I still hold my little dictator, my heart is filled with joy. I feel as blessed as the ponies are when the snows melt filling the streams with water and the fresh grass grows. It’s tradition for those who aspire to an NDN Princesses favor, to represent themselves with those things of theirs which they perceive her extremely to delight. Customarily we see horses, furs, the world....
I’ve a future in envy,
An unparalleled innocence of conscious abilities,
None hostile nor docile but impalpable,
I use my conflicting past to temper my
Current existence, rectifying my tattered wings,
An envied sparrow…
I think of minutes, staring at time, taunting
It to fight me.
Can’t the face of Ol’ grandfather time see that
Time and time again
Senseless violence takes
A friend, brother, sister
Mother, father or child
All the while,
The world keep spinning around.
Another soul lost
Too many tears shed
Feelings of emptiness surround us
Another great human is dead.
Nipsey Hussle left us
But his name and music
Will forever live on,
Music played everywhere,
His name spoken from...
