Even at first glance
Who am I to deny, she was beautiful
Her ambiance shined thru
I became attentive to her nature, I listened
She painted a picture, her wisdom
Was the furthest from cold, just experienced
She wore, the jewels from life’s lessons
And how today, her hope is rich soil
Fully fascinated, I smiled, I was humbled
Searched her eyes for joy, she was strong
Raw thoughts transformed to words
And give life,
Verbalizing silent emotions about struggle
Communicating my feeling just using
Articulating my passion on a different
Level so we connect.
Revealing the sentiments of my heart
Using poems as expression,
Disclosing the truth of my soul through
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,
The road may look empty in the wake of night,
Until the sweet lights illuminate the road ahead,
What may have looked like a vacant, lonely road,
Is now filled with others on the same path as you,
With a honk of the horn or a brief conversation at a
Stop light, it’s likely you meet someone that can help
You reach your highest potential, encourage you
Through the hard times, an...
My life before prison
was broken and sad.
The life of a drunkard,
A liar, a cad.
I've spit in the faces
Of family and friends,
And don't have the courage
To pursue their amends.
It's been four long years
Since I had my last drink,
Yet my actions still haunt me
Everytime that I blink.
Does the pain that I've caused
Late to bed early to rise; the herd needs watchful eyes. Nomadic blood that no one can tame; preserve this blood not like the ancient beast slain. Protect the clan that buds from man; thunder echoes throughout the land. The energy of the God's is present in all that is spoke; drums and singing now the Pagan soul has awoke. Ignite the flame, Oh the divine spark; inhale the smoke of the...
Love captured under false pretenses
Heart manipulated by facades…
The love of Venus thrown off course
By confusing forces from Mars.
Inner storms brewing chaos
Raindrops form puddles on her feet.
Drop by drop from her chin
Yet momentarily huddled in her cheek.
Priceless diamond girl blinded,
Her security and confidence
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
If It Was Me
Police are killing innocent people at an alarming rate,
And none of its hearsay, everything is caught on tape.
Even with that overwhelming evidence, free, away they walk,
I pray for the mothers whose sons lie in chalk…
People like myself who have no money,
Get sent straight to prison, but the thing that’s really funny,
Is I ain’t even do sh*t but protect myself from harm....
Make It Up To You
I've been in jail since you’ve been months old, I know.
And I know you’re angry because your face and voice tell me so.
In your eyes I've only been a disappointment to you and your brothers.
But when you look at it, it’s not just y’all, it’s plenty others.
I haven’t taught you anything that a father should.
But I praise your mother because she’s doing everything she could...
The Age of Confusion
Through the ideological darkness of a world gone mad,
Simple concepts upended, their meanings a fad.
While the sun as our compass, is dethroned from the sky,
Dark lamps guide into trespass, the blind wonder why.
When tolerance, the only virtue, unpunished and unblamed,
The man with no principles, alone escapes unshamed.
They rail at the Nation, in earth and in sky,
Pokémon Sunshine and Digimon Daydream
The relics of my youth
CD player, Cable TV and a Playstation 2
I was a hero, A villain too
Even a giant robot from time to time
Cathartic moments and turbulent times
Most of my day spent inside
Hours spent grinding, searching for gear
Binge watching a new show
Oh how I miss those careless days
When my biggest problem was...
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...
What is life without the urge to wanna strive
What’s it like to be earth bound but destined to fly
How do you find what’s unknown, tho meant to hide
Without time is distance defined
Without a lie how can I achieve
For you to believe this is me
If I were a bird could I be in love with a bee
If trees had no leaves how would we know when to leave
If time didn’t mean a thing
Life Is A Dream
In this place, negativity is all I see
In this cell, pain is all I can smell
I ask myself, is this me, or am I adrift at sea?
How did I get here? Was it a mistake?
Or simply a cruel twist of fate?
Last night I had the most beautiful dream
It was so real, or so did it seem
I awoke from my slumber and a visitor appeared
It was you standing there, your eyes...
“A MAN’S BLESSING”
A woman is truly amazing, flawless in the creation of such beauty.
As a man were to love and cherish her, it’s our duty.
Ready to fulfill all of her needs, wants, and desires,
fully taking control and not waiting for something to transpire.

Love Extended…Is Love Rewarded
In this generation many of us are living our daily lives without experiencing love; due to the fact that we are waiting for someone to love us or for someone to show us love. When in reality, greater love is experienced as we personally extend love beyond ourselves towards others. For the more we love, the more we will experience love – because love is self-replenishing.
A lonely flower stood in a field, it had lost its will to survive. Not even the birds or the sun and the sky, could keep the flowers sole from dying. Until one day, on a cloud way up high, the tiny rain drop was passing by. The rain drop knew just what the flower had missed, so the rain drop came down and gave the flower a kiss. That one little kiss was all it took, for the flower to...
"IF I COULD BE"
If I could be anything
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...
Hope to me is life. Without hope there is no life.
Hope is what keeps me breathing, hope that someday
things will get better. Hope that I can change,
that others will see that change.
Hope that the future will be less painful than the past.
Hope that freedom exists outside of me. Hope that
God exists for me. Hope that I’m not too old
or too late, not too much nor...
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...
Convoluted Conservatorship (Dissemblers)
Intolerant exclusionists, chauvinists, and pliable palliating pseudo humanitarians masquerading as heroic court appointed conservators to/for we the indigent, mentally impaired, incompetent and/or the poor…
Wolves in sheep’s clothing – most of them are.

Friendship’s a flower which grows from seed.
Planted in hearts with a mutual need;
Nurtured by trust as a rose by rain,
Exuding its fragrance through joy and through pain.
But unlike the rose which in time will decay,
The flower of friendship grows sweeter each day,
And its perfume I savor, for true
Friends are few,
And I’m thankful, Dear Friend,
To have one such as you.
I’m trying to stay free in my mind because freedom of my mind will be my only escape. I’m trying to be more productive of myself for myself and even though that may sound selfish, I have to do things like this or I become useless to myself and to others. Because I’m trying to stay free in my mind because freedom of my mind will be my only escape.
So leave me to my peace and I’ll leave you to yours, not to say that I am...
The Value Of Friendship
FRIENDSHIP: Is the appreciations of all beings humans, animals, plants, etc….
The harmony and natural order of life!
FRIENDSHIP: Is godly in character!
FRIENDSHIP: Is being kind, being mindful, being respectful,
The Love of the Season Autumn
In the crisp gentle wind of fall
You can see the beautiful brown autumn leaves big and small
Jack-O-Lanterns, bats and candy corn delight the children
But the biggest treat of all lies within them
A big smile across their face is what parents seek
To see their bright faces say “Trick or Treat”.
A time of Harvest, the season is of plenty
The wind whistles wonderful melodies
Melodious and dulcet
Who knew that the air up there
Could sound so beautifully
I gaze at the beautiful night sky
A beautiful bright star that’s
One in a million
In the firmament full of stars
With diverse dispositions, appearance, and brilliance
That brilliantly appear right before my eyes
And I knew that...
chipped paint, rusty doors
stained steel, and cracked floors,
a black rose
rose for an encore.
Rooted by tears of spilled dreams,
and the soil of being deemed
unenviable for life’s theme;
yet, blossomed, a rose has risen.
Nurtured by the rays of hope on the horizon,
a fellow petal’s guidance,
Boys are students
Men are teachers,
Boys ask questions
Men give answers,
Boys run in gangs
Men organize teams,
Boys play house
Men build homes,
Boys make babies
Men raise children,
Boys will not raise their own child
Men will raise his and someone else's,
Boys invent excuses for success
Men produce strategies for success,
