Inmate Poetry

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...

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...

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...

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...

Who are they to judge the mind I'm
The ashes of dust we call the stars
There's a mental phantom choosing
Something of illusion professing
These illusions fix the stranger in
With the mind's eye on anthropomorphic
What impressions did the mind first

Raw thoughts transformed to words

And give life,

Verbalizing silent emotions about struggle

And strife.


Communicating my feeling just using

My intellect,

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

My written...

A long hallway entering the prison, sealing your fate. A new life to live, finding your place. Some people choose gangs, but that isn’t for me. I came here alone, I’m going to stand on my own feet. I try to stay positive, doing something constructive. Don’t focus on negative, causing self-destruction. Most people use drugs for numbing the pain. Not realizing the problems they’re going to gain.

It’s all smiles going on visits with...

If I had another chance I’d tell you
that the things “we” had were right and
I threw it all away.

Time cannot erase the love and memories
we shared, but it does give me time to reflect
and realize just how much you loved me.

Now that it’s over and your gone for good,
I’m really not the same anymore.  I guess I
only have...

Chasing Justice


For them truth and justice means nothing,
And they’ve proven that this is true.
I was wrongfully convicted in Dallas, Texas
For a crime they all know I didn’t do.

This whole ordeal is tearing at my spirit,
And has caused wounds that will never heal.
Many nights my thoughts have overtaken me,
Often confusing that which is real.

What is Prison?

People think of prison as only bricks and steel,
But there are so many other forms of prison that are just as real.
Like the young girl who seeks to be loved and jumps from man to man,
She’s a prisoner to her own emotions, she just doesn’t understand.
Or the young man who steals and deals to get what he can get,
He’s a prisoner on his way to prison, he just doesn...

Focused on doing the time, just not to lose my mind, something about the struggle, is so define, so the love is hard to find, imagine searching and clawing for every nickel and dime, raised in a concrete jungle, all while doing time, so many tears, but unable to cry. I tried time after time, sometimes I feel I was built for this, picking loyalty over money every time cost me my life, but never again.

When the skies are blue
The flowers will grow
The Earth turns and with it
You are my life to show
Forever free, you’re my heart to be sewn
From the raging waters, to the calming seas
I can stand by your side and forever be
Always a friend, always a king
By your side, to set you free
All you have to do – is say
“In Jesus...

Can you picture a caterpillar and the form it displays?

Wiggling around with hopes that one day

Its metamorphosis stage would help him through this faze,

Then one day it blooms, making the beholders amaze.

All of the people who see this creature will see all of the beauty

You gave,

To what used to be only a caterpillar who craved.

…For friendship.

Thank you, for being a beautiful...

Introverted Sunshine

Introverted sunshine…
Your nighttime dazzles while your stars blind
In reserved fine-ness your highness…
Though your beauty is in every eyes beholder
To those who can look up and define ya…
Under ya starry skies I wander…
Umbrella over me I’m under, it would seem
Mystique like.
More involved through my telescopes locked in...

“In Search I Might”
Somewhere along my train of thought,
A sudden rush created a spark.
A spark that flowed within my soul,
Longing for a friendship that would grow.
Nothing more than sincere rapport,
Built on loyalty, trust and more.
Maybe today, maybe tonight,
Maybe a week, or a year’s time,
But search and search, in search I might,
Find a special friend for life....

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...

All around nothing but white

But everywhere you look, you can see signs of life

A snowman dressed with grandpa’s old clothes

The little children make Frosty with a smiling pose

The joy of life can never be more present

The presence of snow is always its own link

It shows us there is more to life than we idly think


As a blizzard prevents all work and movement

Against My Will

I continue to rise above it….
Rich in spirit my net worth
unfathomable in strength i can
muster, when life’s custom and
product is too much and out of my
Against my will i….
still rise….
like goose bumps in icy winds through
clouds “in” sky, into the open air when
the world weighs me...

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...

Life – what is life, a long line
In my life, many things I hold inside
Speaking sense to irrational people, they won’t allow
We were told to be bold and proud
Things taught can be what makes you fall long and hard
We believe our teacher infallible, never scarred
Maybe we should have asked questions, thought long and hard

Life – Life is mistakes, Trial and...

Lotus Flower Bomb

Lotus flower of the freshest petals,
Blooming in the ambience of heavens
Hidden in esoteric meaning beyond
The most precious special….
Lotus flower….
The very meaning to adorn in exquisite
Lotus flower, I can’t guess your
It’s like Jasmin sweet scented cinnamon,
Lemon vanilla, exotic, yes yes...

I went from chilling with the Trap Queens,
And eating chili fries
Now I'm building with PCAP Queens
Check out my twist on "Still I Rise."

It was the Queen Maya Angelou who spit these words,
That touched every princess to the ghetto to the burbs.
So I had to take a second look to try to surmise,
How her words ring eternal even after her dismiss....

You took my kids away from me

and they don’t even live with you

and the fed’s did too.


You put me on child support,

But you can eat too.


The fed’s fabricated my case

And your life is fabricated too.


You kick me when I’m done

But everybody did too.


I don’t feel no pain

Because life is “GREAT”

Though I never say it.
You're the most important person in my life.

You're also the most difficult, frustrating woman I've ever known;
And in these moments;
You're the only one I can talk to from the heart,
Who cares enough to try and understand me.
When I had lost sight of myself.

Seeing me for myself,
Listening to my thoughts...

Fallen down deep into a pit of despair,
Gasping at breaths but purchasing no air.
Once free to roam without any cares,
Now just a creature in an inextricable snare.
What can the purpose of this life be? 
Fighting battles in darkness no one can see.
The enemies are vast, fearless and bold
There’s silence and sadness here in this cold. 
The warm...

Lost and Found

Feelings often change like the color of the leaves in October, to be honest, I’m not afraid to say that I need to be watched over, me and you until the end of time has always been the plan. And the look on your beautiful face makes when I’m around has me striving to be a better man. Can we start over? I don’t think so, our flaws and scars seem to make up who we are, a million miles would never be too far to walk if I...

A freezing wind chills the air around the ice shrouded mound.
There at the pinnacle, a forlorn, dying oak stands tall,
Skeletal branches void of leaves clawing skyward abound.
Unloved and forgotten, yet refusing ever to fall.
Don’t doubt how I know of this desolate place dead as bone,
For the visage shaped by the bark is my very own.

Shackled within my eternal winter, inside I cry

My Queen

My Princess, my Queen
You’re everything I ever needed
And when I see your face
Or hear your voice
Then I know I am defeated.

Because I can fight a lion
Or kill a man
But I can’t look into your eyes
It’s like you see into my soul
It’s like you see past my disguise.

I ask myself why?
Why I do care about you so much...

I Meant

I meant to hold you today
I meant to give you the touch
You needed so much,
I meant to give you a hug.
Instead my fears got the best of me and
I walked off with a shrug.
I meant to tell you I love you
I meant to pull you close and
Tell you how much I care.
I meant to show you what you mean to me
I meant my love for you to feel and see.
Instead my fears got the...
