"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 with your eyes filled with tears
I pulled you close and whispered "Baby don't cry"
What is stressful pandemic, as this pandemic breezes through our nation and distracts us from our lively form of dedication
We become more thankful for all of Allah's creation only from the fear of the destruction of this world
We tend to seem lost but the only right path to walk...
When I came to prison I lost all hope
but I had to remember how it felt to be at the end of my rope.
Friends I thought were loyal and built on trust
faded and eroded like a car full of rust.
Like the saddest of love songs I feel alone and full of sorrows
If U Were Mine…
If U were mine I’d study your heart until the beat is memorized
And demonstrate devotion through love exemplified.
I would be CEO to your sacred enterprise.
If U were mine…U would never ever be neglected.
Communication would be open, our lines would...
Silent screams you will never hear
Silent screams that burn my ears
Silent screams that walls of concrete muffle and steal
Metal bars that rust my tears
Alone in my cell trapped with fear
Fear of losing what’s most dear
No roses are red, violets are blue stuff, reading this you know I’m cool as shiss.
Reading your mind is like studying an astrology quiz, personality so unique, impossible to forget.
Don’t wanna know you by name, never judge you by looks, taking my time...

To shackle me in chains… sailing to a new world placing collars on our brains… To take me away from all I know and put on an auction block. Sold as part of the show…
To be drawn like cattle and sent to the...

Time in the house where the windows
The broken are spoken
of as dogs underfoot
They’ve put the shackles on prisoners
Living in a single cell, spending a lot of time alone
Making plans for my life, what I’m gonna do when I get home
Looking back over two decades, can’t believe the time I’ve lost...
In the beginning;
Before God got his hands dirty;
From the chemicals in the sands.
God spoke His word,
Everything in existence.
Now I’m online…
Getting my mind dirty,
If you could see the world through my eyes you’d be blinded.
The colors too bright, hiding a darkness deep inside it.
You’d be transfixed, dazed, staring in amazement.
“The World I Live In”
I look into the eyes of evil and realize that we “use” to know each other, the relation is so familiar that it's almost like we're brothers
Good doesn't exist in this world of darkness filled with sorrow and pain, with so much strife, contention, and hurt,...
Nationality Not Religion

Right now it is so hard to go on. I can’t describe the lack of will I’ve to live. Something in my life has to change. Something has got to give. I can’t expect God to bail me out of my troubles. Most of them of which I’ve caused. God has witnessed everything from my manipulating...
Become the dance, and be guided by our ingenious.
Be moved by those gifts that exist only in our imagination.
Let our fantasies run free forever and in all ways....
Poison and disease hunts us down and constricts us
Long before mask mandates we concealed our face,
So before the reveal the question is, which us?
That we choose to present, do we wave and smile like
Life’s great? Or is our knees to the floor as we scream...
Friends to the End
I'm constantly encouraged to create something the reader can savor, it's always my mission to prepare a literary meal.
With adequate flavor something that leaves them feeling full and looking for my next piece, thought provoking poetry that's destined to live...
Oftentimes I close my eyes
and let my mind take me to a better place.
To escape from all this hate
and break free from all this pain.
I've learned to make do with what I got
and take each day, day by day.
Reminding myself that nobody's perfect...
Away from family and friends,
Can't remember how it started and don't know when it ends.
It hurts doing dead time lost in the pen where’s hope in a better day
When you don't know when it ends.
People dying talking on the...
Succeed. I will. At all cost.
I refuse to settle for less.
Incarcerated, though I am,
I am inspired nonetheless.
Indomitable. I am....
"Love Of My Life"
What is life if it is lived without love?
Without love are you really living at all?
Can one endure a lifetime without ever experiencing the joy of love?
A loss of life that would be.
To lose out on the happiness...
From within this concrete fortress
Constructed to contain
Madness, heartache, death, and pain
One must seek solace in an attempt to maintain and stay sane
Nothing but darkness
Accompanied by an Arctic chill
Are the daily...
Needing His Help
Lord I know I’m not right and I need help
Suffocating all my life and I need breath
I done spent entire nights trying to please flesh
Only reaping what I sow but, I’m seedless
Heed this, I can’t express it, can’t suppress it, it’s contradictive...
Am I the only one? That wants
Forgiveness for not being a father to
My only son. Yeah it’s crazy that I’m
Different, going through life people told...
Fear is a wolf on a chain, only dangerous when you set it free. Sorrow exhausts itself in the net of forgetting, anger, for all its fury, can be killed by a smile. Only hope goes on forever, because hope doesn’t belong to us; it belongs to our ancestors, the first of our kind, whose brave love...
People often think the hardest thing is losing the one you love in your life.
The truth is, the hardest thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone else.
And at some point, you've got to learn that some people can stay in your heart, but not in your life.
This poem is to the woman I hurt behind this word called love,
Everybody seems to think if you love easy then it will end hard.
If you give it fast it will kill you slowly. Do I love you, do I love you? Of course I do. Differently from how I...
Quarantine (Part 1)
My heart goes out to all of the victims we lost to the madness
All of the family, lost in the balance
I know it's hard to keep balanced and managed
The way things are now life has changed so suddenly,
can't even go out in public...
Fit to Stand Trial
It's very hard to be accepted when you're living under a misconception
When they paint you with the brush of a villain, you get no affection
People believe everything they hear in the media even if they lied
But my hands are always open - people...
