Inmate Poetry

I am from the tree that birthed the leaf
Which fed the caterpillar who evolved into itself.
I am self with the universe. I – AM – WE
Equals ME – are eternal, in that sense, death is only promised to circumstance.

For like the tree whose leaves fall only to
Make room for new bearers of oxygen –

I am from the winds that carry it.

I am from the breeze that blows the hair

The UPPER ECHELON is looking down on me claiming I am a liability – then I ask myself how can I be when all I have to strive for is CLARITY to the missing pieces to of how my IDENTITY WAS STOLEN???

Serious about mine(s) but I’m surrounded by multitudes lap dancing (the west) with their gangbanging tactics, or how they mimic (THE SOUTH) with their lyrical rap gimmicks...

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 am a problem for bringing savage back and it’s so matter of fact.  Heart as black as the clouds throwing thunder and the court documents say it’s the U.S.  of a versus me.  Guess I’m a one man war party.  But I’m not guna do what everyone thinks I’m guna do.  All I wanna know is who’s coming with me.  Therefore I laid out the strategy of the...

“Sweet Strangers”

“You have mail…”
The words of heaven
Like water.
To the unfortunate in hell.

Addressed from a stranger
To deliver hope
To the hopeless
So meticulous, her thoughts
She enclosed
Under this postage.

The blissful aroma of her letter
Priceless pleasure…
Taken for granted.
Savor the fragrance
As I read...

You are the lady of the woods, the mighty Huntress.
With those eyes meant for a bow see me far off.
How long was I watching you?
I am manly and proud and beautiful and terrifying.
You are cold and exacting and distant.
Your eyes, the color of clear summer skies.
My eyes that of the woods: Bark, moss and shadow.
The birds gossip about us.
I see the rain coming in...

My Brown Eyes

When, look into your depths, feel
I see your different layers…
Your essence more vivid then painted
pictures in a gallery of insignificant
or from your lips to the Gods with omni
potent ears in the heavens surpassing
low prayers….
I see you in my vision Ms. Brown eyes….
I see you in my visualizations….
I see you...

My Thoughts Retained From Solitude

1. The Secret of life is to fall seven times and to get up eight.
2. To realize one’s destiny is a person’s obligation in life.
3. Remember life past but focus on life future.
4. Take advantage of the moments when time stops to better equip yourself.
5. A wise man does not speak of his wins nor of his defeats.
6. If you pay attention to the present,...

Justin’s Prayer

Jesus, what’s up dogg?
Why you keep playin? 
Come into my heart already,
you know I’ve been prayin!
I need you now more than ever,
I admit that I’m a sinner!!
Turn me from a loser,
And make me into a winner!!
Drugs have stolen my soul,
Please take away my desire!!
And instill in me some honesty,

I’m waiting for my time to come.
Or waiting until my time is done.
They say there is no way that I can make it home but I plan on
Finding one.
I’m waiting on a letter but it seems like no one wants to write.
So I end up stressing swinging on anyone who wants to fight.
I’m waiting on a money order so I could get a pair of sneaks.
Because these...

Women need love…men need respect. This is God’s design when both needs are met a virtuous cycle begins; a woman who is loved finds it far easier to show respect, a man who is respected finds it far easier to show love. When those needs are not met, the cycle turns vicious. If a woman doesn’t receive love, she tends to withhold respect, if a man doesn’t receive respect he tends to withhold love…Men must love unconditionally…Women must respect...

Equal Mind…

I’m just a simple man…
A simple man in search of his equal
An equal mind that understands, one who’s virtuous
To find her, I strive for perfection
The honesty of a real man
So many years I’ve searched along the lines of
Love alone
But fail to find…
My strong opposite of an equal mind.

I’ve dealt with so many...

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....

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...

Laws of our Land

To one nation under God
For liberty and justice to all.
These are words we all know
These same words we seldom recall!
Innocent to proven guilty
At least that’s what they say.
Yet each night before we sleep
These very words we often pray!
Although we live in the land of the free
And it’s known as the home of the brave.

If I could be anything
or anywhere
I'd be the wind
I could blow my kisses at you every day
so I could twirl my arms around you.
And I could run my fingers through your hair.
I would bring the rain for you
or make the sun shine for you
If I could be the wind
There'd always be a lovely smell in the air
nothing foul could stay...

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;...

“Heart of a Man, Soul of a Woman”

You say you want to look into my heart,
I want to look into your Soul.
Both of us have our secrets hidden in closets to which the door is always closed.
Admittedly so, I’m afraid to open myself up to another person:
What if she doesn’t turn out to be whom I thought she would be,
Instead of easing the pain she increases the hurting.

Gone But I hope I’m Not Forgotten

Here today but as the wind blows I sway but neither here or there
I’m planted in drab shades of grey, from black I fade, I’m gone…
Hope I am still here and present in the minds of some, though the majority of them
Deaf or dumb or maybe just mindless ones in a zone of timeless webs of thought
Silkly spun.

Hope I am not forgotten…...

I Come From a Long Line of…

I come from a long line of men who fail to appreciate beautiful, smart, good women…

I come from a long line of men who never taught me to be grateful for anything.

I come from a long line of men that never took time to teach me how to be a loving, patient husband to a gracious woman. I come from a long line of men who were selfish and stubborn. I come from a long line of...

Lady Lovely

Hey there blondie.  Here’s a poem I wrote for you; just to let you know
that you're beautiful, all 5’2” of you.  A wonderful banquet for the
eye to behold; with sun-kissed natural honey-blond hair like satin strands
of gold; majestic hazel eyes of dark greyish-blue; like Tiffany stained-glass
windows from which your soul shines through; you're a precious, special,

The following is an affidavit.  It is a written statement of facts pertaining to a particular sequence of events, which provides a narrative with a disjointed and sporadic tale.  When we write, we draw from our own experiences, creating a window to our world with our words.  This concept is illustrated in ‘Strewn along a Highway’, which is an account of my experience with suppressed memories that I found myself reliving in the...

A CARE FREE SOUL: Is responsible,
Not committed to anyone or worthy cause.
It has to be expressed lacking a serious view of life!

And displays an callous view of others!

A IGNORANT SOUL: Don’t know,
Or won’t turn on the light switch of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom,
To begin the learning process!

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...

Feelings of helplessness
Like a bad dream,
I can’t move, run or hide
A heavy instrument knocking on the inside
Darkness surrounds me
I'm falling and screaming, but my voice is no more,
Can this be real will I awaken
My body is sinking into the floor

Suddenly, a feeling, a sign
In a sea of darkness, a ray of sunshine
I push through, with all my might
“Damn I...

What sensation to be this amazing
I’m collecting many praises
From all these different faces
Tell’em who’s the greatest of’em all
Yea I took some falls
Might’ve stumbled in the halls
But I climbed every wall
While walking every bridge
Just trying to get my glimpse
Of what greatness is
So I hop every fence
In my search for evidence
That greatness still...

There comes a time in each of our lives where we have
Experienced what is called, “broken moments”.  It was once
Said, “That without a foe, a person will never know their true
strength”.  From the exiting of the womb, until the grave, every
one of us will experience unfavorable circumstances that will
either strengthen our resolve or utterly destroy us. ...

#Times Up

Women these days are really playing hardball; it no longer matters what’s between your legs so don’t get caught up and become a target of their role call. It used to be fun being the man and watching them fall victim to the envy. With the right connections whether she agreed to or not there was no such thing as “Do Not Enter”.
They accepted their fates then cried while alone, feeling misused, abused and dejected. They...

You will never know what a letter can mean until you have been where I am, or been through what I’ve been through.

I’m confined to a world behind four walls where no one can see me, and I receive no calls or visits.

Often I sleep and wake up alarmed, thinking that my family, loved ones, or friends may be harmed.

Thank God it’s just a dream as I come to my senses.  Then I look out the window and still see the...
