This is the best time for laughs and smiles.
With joyful hearts, and giddy juveniles.
Welcome the season that's so full of cheer
From spinning dreidels, to seeing reindeer.
No matter the color, education, or creed.
There's a hearty “...
“A Letter To Nipsey”
Mista Hu$$le & Motivate / I had always knew dat someday you would be great / Back in 2004, 2005, when we used to sale DVD’s & CD’s out them crates / Dat’s how we ate / R.I.P. ThundaCat / A.K.A. Nipsey Hu$$le tha Great / I remember when we used to record at...
To those who choose this poem to read; from behind gray walls, I felt the need to take my years dusted off the shelf to reveal a little bit about myself. Unfortunately I’m alone and past my prime, I’m learning to change my ways while doing time. Trying to pretend to be somebody else, a life of...
I wanna know about the way you feel.
Don’t be afraid to open your heart, all wounds will heal.
My whispers to your eardrums relax your emotions with ease.
The aura of your presence brings a weakness to my knees.
Let me hold you tight and protect you...
Trapped, but not by walls,
Fences, cages, cement or signs.
Like yourselves I’m a victim.
Victimized by the tyranny of time.
Trapped, but not by walls.
Kidnapped with each passing second,
Held against my will,
Murdered, and time was the...
Tell Me What You Think!
Tell me if you think...
You could win a war without a...
“Respect To You Before Anything”
When it comes to you, I be in deep
Thought, or outer space.
I get it, “Treat people, how you want
To be treated”?
Love can blind you, or it can clarify
Being still, I learn how to love myself....
I take my focus serious, due to focus being my energy, that very focus helped to define who I am today. I've gained an understanding of myself. I've set goals and promised to see them through until the end. I stand for what is positive. Join the fight...
Though time does always race the same for all,
Can we expect it to be always fair?
For with uneven hands the clocks display
As men are unevenly dealt their affairs.
To some, ticks leech away the sweet hours,
To some, the hours sweetly tick away,...
The Biscuit Giver
I sat on my front porch,
The concrete cool beneath me.
I curved my shoulders forward
And drew my gaze down
While holding out the biscuit.
After the dog’s incursions
Into our yard, my sitting
Aroused its curiosity; perhaps...
“Make It Right”
My ancestors were slaves and I still allowed myself to end up in chains.
Isn't it all the same? Well, except for who's to blame?
They would never approve. So, what does this prove?
Was I destined to lose? Was this fated from the...
What is love?
Love is doing all you can for another, even if it means giving the shirt off your back. Love is being there for another, regardless of when, where, or why. Love is making sure another is happy, even if that very happiness causes you pain.
What is love?
Do I really need a diamond to make you mine forever?
Or will my love suffice? Without a thing can
we start planning together and hope
everything will turn out right. They say all
we need is love, and we’ll last, But
maybe they spoke too soon...
Why Do I Write?
From the confines of a cubicle
I watch a roach crawling around
The peeling paint of a prison wall.
It seems I've been here
Since the construction of this
1920s model of Criminal Justice.
Each year passing.
If I were to discover the burgundy in your eyes, would that be the road to an unconditional influence of possibilities?
Should such chemistry ignite a world of wisdom, a life of knowledge or another volume of fire?
See, of course Eye am hungry…
Even know which ingredients...
Snow On The Rose
I’m a rose that grows
Through the cold of snow
Inside the veins that flow
In the depths of the Earth that’s low
Beneath the skins of our bodies will show
Our true natures glow...
By Rodney A. Warndahl
He lights a candle in the window
To guide his lady’s way home;
Had her stocking hung
Since Thanksgiving was done,
There for when she walks thru the door…
He wrapped her present after it first snowed,
Wrote “For you...
I committed a crime and caused great pain.
I’ll grow old in this with this darkness, it will never be the same,
Running from the memory of your name.
I promise I loved you, I didn’t mean to betray.
“Advertising in it’s highest flight exerts itself and monetize it’s might”.
J’aime le gateau.
Paul Andrew Rouse
If no one can
see my tears do they
still count? if my heart
skips like kids often do,
does that mean I’m in
love? if my past
could speak, would it tell
my future, if fairy tales
were true, would love’s
kiss awaken me? if...
From your filthy dream
In your filthy bed
With your filthy arm around me
And your filthy seeds dead-dry between my thighs
Like every morning;
And found a tune
Fit to whirl a dervish to....
“Crazy thoughts…has anyone seriously tried to compose a song using a William Shakespearean sonnet – and not as a gaffe?”
Paul Andrew Rouse
When you don’t know what you should do or where to turn
If you are nervous, uptight and your stomach churns;
Take a step back and think things through
I am going to tell you what you should do.
See if the decision is born out of love or hate
Who will be here
Who will stay
How will I make it through today
Lie to me that's fool
Who will make me smile
I need love where could it be
I'm hungry with nothing to eat
Who will be my beauty to this beast
Keep positive thoughts...
My desperate pleas
I’m living in extremes
If nothing else at all
Will you clean me
Will you heal me
After the fall?
I’d ask for love
It leaves me
An example of crazy is continuing to be the same.
When the same has never prospered you being a fool is what you claim.
Quit hunting things that should not be. Enjoy life is what to do.
Turn in that dated uniform, and try on something new.
Negativity has no...
I am caught within a vortex of deep
emotion, simultaneously submerged in joy and pain...
Hope and despair, sensitivity and masculinity... I am
helplessly shattered, yet whole, doubtfully trusting the
throes of my senses... Inflated...
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...
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...
The Fire in my Heart
Came from God above
It's such a wonderful blessing
to receive his holy love
He kindled a fire
that makes me whole
It started in my heart
burns deep in my soul
He picked up this poor sinner
He sent me on...
