Mrs. Edible

A woman is known by the company her mind keeps.
And if you hear what comes out of her heart, goes to a heart.
And when you love yourself like she do, it’s a romance for eternity.
She (spouse) is priority, rapture is what she brings to the table.
That table, has a nutritious substance to maintain life and growth.
It’s a magnificent sight illuminating and plentiful,...

Songs of Fire

I rise from the ashes to my knees,
From my knees to my feet,
Then I spread my arms out wide
As they metamorphose into wings,
My attention is fueled by the desire
To transcend myself higher and higher
As my vices are consumed by the fire;
The fire of which is my attire
At the peak of my climb I become refined
With a renewal of the spirit and mind
But...

                         Lost and Found

Lost in my seclusion, embarrassed and ashamed;

I have realized the truth; It’s myself I have to blame!

 

A desperate cry for help, to our Lord up above;

Knowing of His greatness, longing for His love!

 

No need to try to...

Alive In A Grave

When the casket walls start to cave in kicking my @$$, I start singing out loud bout taking it all back. Heyah! Way Heyah! And it sounds like that. Fighting terrorism goes way back. Since 1492 to be exact. And my ancestors don’t speak English. In the spirit of Crazy Horse maybe this Native got a death wish. So French kiss the raised fist. I did this for y’all indigenous. Now I’m behind enemy lines...

SDVSTS

Stop Domestic Violence,
Stop the Silence,
Why is it silenced,
No hashtag for this one,
It’s still a loaded, gun,
Bang, bang, another baby stunned,
While he watches his mom
Being beat to death,
Another father laying his daughter to rest.
Who’s next!
Grab her hand and help her up,
Their minds are stuck,
Brainwashed and plucked,
The only voice she has is...

The Love I Never Had

If I could, I would give you the love I never had
Growing up as a child, raised without a dad
I wish I could hold you, I wish I could kiss you
God, how much I miss you,
Watching you grow from jail is hard, communication is
Kind of scarce, it’s definitely difficult.
You’re growing a lot, you’re growing fast, I know it’s hard
Without your dad.

I wish I could...

Not Who I Used To Be

Look at me, what is it that you see? Is it the tattoos that
Have a gangster’s history, or, is it truly…Me? I hope
So because believe it when I tell you, I’m very much not
Who I used to be. Ah, man I’ve heard it said many ways
And ten times too many. “Don’t no one want you, you’re a killer,
The people’s enemy” and to it I shake my head no longer feeling
Defeated because, unlike...

Mine Eyes
By Andrew Burke

For years and years I totaled tears
‘Till one day mine eyes dripped dry
‘Twas then I defied my darkest fear
For no longer could I cry

I stood mountain tall!
A sea about my feet
And o’er that ocean of tears did form
A spectre of true deceit

Toe to toe and face to face
I stood affront my twin
A perfect mirror...

Native Nomad
By Daniel Thomas

Great Spirit shed light on my path second generation orphan, native nomad. Just a young man cub, raised without a mother’s love. The underdog nobody wanted to see win. Born in sin? No. But I walk a black road. Fugitive, no home on my homeland. Live so fast, they buried me alive. Nationwide, I was made to fight, before I knew what I was fighting for. Going back to my roots on the Powwow...

ARE YOU LISTENING?

I have been lonely;
Locked away inside my cell,
I was so alone;

Then came, one day, love –
Entering my cell and heart,
Awakening me,

Bittersweet the change
Within me, my heart alive
Yet in agony,

Are you listening?
Seeing this computer screen?
Are you there at all?

I’m sending this out
A message in a...

“How do you Know?”

Laughing when your mad,
Smiling when your angry,
Crying when your happy,
Frowning when your pleased,
Giggling when your agitated,
Screaming when your titillated,
Thirsty when your wet,
Saturated when your dry,
Calm when your livid,
Serene when your mean,
What you have never known,
THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW!

My Confession

It’s time I open up, there’s no reason to hide
My pain runs deep because I’m hurting inside
Growing up I thought it was normal to be broke
But that didn’t stop my mom from doing dope
If she couldn’t get it then my butt she’d beat
I was 12 years old, she put me out on the street
I turned into a thief, “Why” you’ll see
Thinking if I support her habit, she’d love me
Over time...

Lost in Thought

They say I'm supposed to be in jail….living in hell…pacing back and forth in a cell waiting on mail my body may be trapped but my mind and soul will forever be free…..for I know me….connect on a level that is mental and emotionally…..the Sun, the Moon, the planets orbiting around one another is almost like my mind orbiting in clutter….at times I slip away…..thinking about that special someone turns my mind into warm...

Take your time with love

It’s complicated, hard, crazy, and chaotic.

It can destroy you or transform you.

It can bind you or set you free.

 

Fairytales can happen, but nightmares still exist

Price charming could be waiting

So don’t throw down the list

 

Love is to be valued, cherished,

And held above anything else.

But, don’t let love lose...

Southern Breeze [Country]

Emerald fields where love can bloom
Blue skies, where black birds fly
Lookin’ into your dark brown eyes
There’s no place I rather be but here

A dirt road that winds real tight
A bonfire in the middle of the night
Sittin’ beside you holding your hand
Moments like this, make me feel so alive

Carolina farms pass us...

Insatiable desire

I yearn for a woman

With tender bounteous bosom

And strawberry curls

Flowing free and unfurled

Over cheeks of rose petals

Adorned with freckles

Insatiable desire

 

Enchantingly exquisite

She wears a woven red dress

Clothing her milky flesh

She glimmers an angelic smile

Her kiss is gentle yet wild

Sweet as...

A Woman’s Beauty

Created from man she was,

the womb of life she is,

a blessing from the creator because,

she provides substance for this.

Reference the womb that bore you

she's the woman who creates life,

a life fashioned and if you only knew,

the pain she gives is rife.

She's a mother, daughter, aunt and niece,

that demands attention and to be respected.

Chasing Love

The thought of falling in love again
Has kept my heart from aching
And though it’s worn upon my sleeve
It has no room for breaking
But nothing is ever set in stone
There are risks with every start
And if that’s what it takes to find the one
I’ll let them tear me apart
And every time I’m put back together
I’m left with the Q, what for?
Until sooner...

Take A Chance

Whimsical whispers like the wind
Tend to dazzle, excite and delight.
Awakening your inner curiosity,
But somehow you continue to fight.
Why not let go of all your inhibitions,
Give in to those feelings and explore?
Is what’s holding you back that serious,
Or does your soul want, need and hunger for more?
Life can move at an alarming rate,
Bringing...

The people around you don’t seem to care anymore

So much lies and secrets you wonder what friends are for

Nobody to talk with because their hearts are closed

They make jokes, you shed a tear and feel so alone

 

I’m no different, I’m just like you

In my moments of despair I don’t know what to do

Our paths are parallel, like your social-net site

I stare at my wall feeling the...

MY DREAM

Once, I was afraid I would never find someone
To really care about.
I wanted someone perfect,
At least for me.
A special kind of talking,
An honest way of listening without judgment;
Not being afraid to laugh or cry;
Kindness and understanding;
Fun, love and excitement;
Someone who would lift my heart with joy.
I guess that I expected a lot,
But I...

Just My Thoughts

These is just my thoughts as I sit here in this four cornered room.
Sentenced to a lifetime of hell in this penitentiary cell
Inflicted by all the pain I’ve caused, by the mistakes I’ve made and all the wrongs I’ve done.
“Like I said, these is just my thoughts.”
I’ve shed so many tears over the years and conquered all my penitentiary fears....

I am a son with no mother or father,

I am a brother with no siblings,

I am a father with no child or children,

I am a friend with no friends,

I am a companion with no counterpart,

I am a facilitator with no followers.

Dear Friends


When I think of you
I think of leaves falling in summers wind
I believe whole heartedly in your trust my friends
you've been her for me mor than those who share my DNA
and yet because of you I could care less they aren't her today
Telling you I love you is not enough
Telling you I adore all of you is maybe to much
Yet I know that when I look in your face...

Genuinely Him

I spin and rotate while standing still.
I of the Lotus, black fan, breaking hands, Martial Art Kung-Fu.
No thinking and thought’n or thought’n and thinking, only knowing.
Strike with wisdom, knowledge and strength (Great White Shark, Green Dragon, Night Owl). I am immune to poison. I eat it, human rats, human snakes, and bullies, etc.
My lifestyle is written in stone....

I’m cool

And irate

Top ten

Both, a fool

Mad, hate

And again

And, again

I’m cool

I begin

To stop

Be straight

Like a pen

I mean

To mean

What I say

To stay

On my path

On the way

Have faith

Just in case

I don’t win

Begin

To stress;

A friend,

Is what I need...

"Shoplifting Philosophy"

Don’t use drugs and shoplift is my philosophy,

take heed or you will experience pain and misery...

Shoplifting is not an innocent crime,

it will lead to doing time...

Things can happen that you least expect,

like putting people in danger and having a car wreck...

Please take heed to my philosophy,

I learned the hard way and caused myself misery...

A lost boy in search of manhood
A system in place, making this find unlikely
Streets offered a look-a-like substance,
Until I found my heart as dark as my skin
Before I knew it
I didn’t know the difference between
Me and the streets
Lured into defeat by arrogant losers,
With American chosen to watch me bleed
Something that has to numb this pain,
So I medicate myself to sleep
I...

Title: Tear Drops

If a tear rolls down my face
They say gangsters don’t cry
Gangsters get shot
And some gangsters die
If a tear rolls down my face
An eye for an eye
Kill them to they die
Pain in my life
If a tear rolls down my face
When I eat I survive
Scheme and I lie
Reach for the nine
If a tear rolls down my face
I want the whole...

Once again, I sit here all alone. Just to open my eyes to see steel and stone.

Out my cell window, I see rain from the sky. Just to realize, it was a tear from my eye.

I feel the cold air, chill me down to the bone. I’m forced to stay here, but this cell is not my home.

I hear the ring,...
