Strength and courage is what I need to make it through the day
So I hope and I pray
Blessings for my family and friends help to ease my mind
And then I can shine.
I do what I can with what I’ve been given,
And I’m doing alright as...
The soul is to the body, what God is to the universe.
Open up them windows
Let out the smoke
My vision is blurry
I’m lost, losing hope
It’s so hard to breathe
I hope that line don’t go flat
Somebody help me please
My heart feels detached
It was once an awkward beat
Your body is a temple,
Your mind is a weapon.
To succeed or fail was never
A question, but a chance
To do right or wrong,
To be still or move on is
Ultimately up to you.
Given we all make mistakes
He or she is no different from you...
Why is it that we blame ourselves
For giving someone our all?
Why is it so easy for you to walk away,
But so hard for me to let it go?
“I love you, I need you”
I can hear it repeating in my head, but the more I hear it
I hear “I hate you, I don’t...
Anxiety creeping up my spine
I’m in a box and the walls are closing in.
The time is ticking, but it feels like my life’s in slow motion.
Every day consists of the same stuff.
Wake up, work out, read, write, watch TV, eat and sleep.
It’s like a bad movie...
Essential To Life
I'm a dying man in search of an antidote
Your soft words and pure heart awoken me from a cold and dark sleep
Meeting you is the reason I can breathe and why my heart beats
See you're bigger and better than omega three
You're more advanced...
Being black means I can’t give up hope.
Because Nelson Mandela stood strong for
Three decades of incarceration,
Then became president of the very same nation.
It’s Muhammad Ali squaring up against
Dear Woman, Dear Woman.
I apologize from coming home late,
Drunk stumbling through the gate.
Smelling of Calvin Klein,
Knowing all you use is Chanel No. 5.
Can’t blame you for changing the locks,...
You can never outrun your past
Even the best lie will never last
Being fake will only take you so far
No matter who you think you are
So remember you can’t be what you’re not
So you better do the best with what you’ve got
I just can’t base my...
Don’t let evil eyes see me
Don’t let evil hands grab me
If they run with evil feet
Don’t let them catch up to me
Please don’t let my past come
From behind to hurt me I pray
My present is considered and
I hope my future is blessed
Remember me when I'm gone away, far away into the silent land where you can no more hold me by my hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning to stay. Remember me when no more day-by-day you tell me of the future that we planned. Only remember me, you understand it will be late to counsel then or...
Dare I hope to hope?
Is it safe? Is it right?
Am I hoping for nothing
But a black and empty night?
Hope should make me happy.
I should laugh, sing, and dance
Because I am hoping. Right?
Ha! Not a chance.
How is it that hope can...
The Conclusion = Who Are You?

I am your Rock & Redeemer, Fortress, Shield & Shelter,
Protection, Refuge and Reigning King forever!
Lord of all Lords, Trustworthy & True! Chain breaker
Peacemaker, Amazing Technician, almighty God,...
You’re my light.
The beacon beckoning my forward through night’s embrace.
The luminous house preventing me from crashing ashore.
Navigating my life’s roughest storms.
I witness your brilliance from a distance afar....
(The following was written a long time ago as a terrifying observation of our human condition. At the time, I was feeling a bit alone and betrayed, which I no longer do, as made evident by the fact that I’m now (as always) trying to meet new and interesting people with this profile. It seems...
I was the flower in your garden late to bloom
Giving you much concern as others budded so soon
Just as you thought all of your work would go to waste
I blossomed and I kept a continuous smile on your face
While others faded my glory continued...
Stab, stab, myself in the heart, one too many times
Pain travels quickly to a weak mind
Gave negativity a chance to shine, exposing my soul
Demons attacking me when I’m weak, weak, I mean sleep
Second line of defense has been reached, the gates have been breached...
A pain burns deep inside
Consuming all the world outside
Loathing and without a name
Trapped in this game.
Flames licking and dancing high.
All the dreams that pass me by.
In defiance, silence is never...
Listen to your intuition and let the universe align
Pay attention to the signs like a blessing in disguise
The truth comes revealed to your demise
Consider the weather and the elements of surprise...
This is me.
Pretty Little Liar
Lie to me with passion for all that it’s worth and intrigue me with deceit so that the truth...
Original Poem Written By: Alexander Cox
I’m an ocean of epic proportions
So deep you might never feel completely into me
I’m a potion doled in small portions
So potent I stain your life for eternity
I’m more than any brain can conceive...
To find me all it’ll take is one simple look,
My design is unique one of a kind, not text book.
No nook or cranny will you find me in.
I’m close to you, I’m more than a friend.
We started out slow, but now feel the rush,
Truth be told you can feel me...
Awaiting The Moment
…When the odds are against us
…We will define!...
…It does not make sense, us…
How you could be mine!
…They don’t understand!...
…Matter fact they never will!...
…How when we’re together…
…The world stands still!...
See The Light
High expectations, but different results
What’s the reason, am I at fault?
So misunderstood, but yet determined
Ushering beneficial knowledge, my inspirational sermon
Past hurts, failed relationships, lost commitments
Partial reasoning for my “...
Beginnings are always scary and difficult to ascertain
Especially when there are so many past endings of hurt and pain that still remain.
See, there are always these moments in life,
When we feel that giving up will solve all of the problems inside of...
I Have No Illusion
The potential of the motivation I feel can cross boundaries of every kind of field. I don’t hold back from any sort of reserve. I see an opportunity in every...
Soft tears in my eyes, wondering why, will you really live or will you really die? Will I ever get the chance to say hi or goodbye? What is the truth to my tears? Is it behind the many years I’m left to endure or is it just my thoughts made clear? Soft tears in my eyes, if I told you my biggest...
What do you see when you see me?
Is it the tans that you see, or is it the man that you see? Can you see me, or do you choose to pretend that I don’t exist?
Is it a lost cause that you see? A statistic that issued as a negative stigma on a faction of this land? Do you see a man...
