Inmate Poetry

Posted on 4/18/2017


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...

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

A Devil Like Me

It’s funny how we miss opportunities and deny ourselves the grace that we so often seek, but maybe one day the world will come to see that its full potential lies within the eyes of a devil like me.
Admittedly I’ve made mistakes according to what man dictates as right or wrong but my past directives blessed me with perspectives that allow me to thrive through any situation that I come upon.
When you judge...

The Phoenix Files Continued

Today…I burned my old flame
In passing…

I was on my way up and she
Was on her way…
In that, I could give two broken
Celibacy vows and honeymoons
Though I doubt a gift to give would
Be easily received…in doubt.

Today…I burned my old emotions.
I experienced a surge of whatever
In my urgent operation...

Potential $kars

Scars R meaningful because they hold many characteristics of difference…
Different people leave us with different scars…
Scars R the reflection of who we R an’ tells the story of what we’ve survived…
Scars R our lesson of life, reminder of reality

Some scars R 4 the better, some R permanent, all scars R
Evidence 4 potential…

In all my eagerness, for success to be reached

I remain poised, as still as the sign that says

Stop no longer distracted by the noise…

Hearing the world more clearly, a melody I can’t

forget, the universal signs & my thoughts collide

as I try not to slip…How often do these raindrops

drip & puddles form on the ground.  Sometimes

I stare at my reflection through them...

So Many Lies!!!

My entire life I’ve been (lied) to and I don’t anticipate anytime soon I’ll be told the truth…(Who can I trust) when my family is collaborating with the adversary for my demise…(So Many Lies!!!). Prison has morphed me into a cynic…Who can I trust when the Majority of clergy, uniform of law/politicians are hypocrites…It’s a fact that white collar crimes/fraud is...

My Secret Pains

Does the pain you feel almost push you to the edge. Does it make you wish you could get it out of your head. It sometimes makes me wish I were dead. Problems I can’t touch, because my hands feel tied. Loved ones I can’t help no matter how hard I try. Do my feelings mean anything since I’m locked away. Are my screams heard though they don’t make a sound. With no one to talk to, cause there...

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...

Chance It…

Lonely eyez looms in the dark,
Shaded light in the corner of a heart.
Whoever it may be,
Hopes & desires takes a leap,
Awaken listening 4 a peep.
Inside the mind,
Holding you from behind.
Outline shadow embracing,
Our heart beats racing.
Whispering soft words in the ear,
Echo promises: “I’ll always be there!”
Your heart says;

“Ode To The Ex”

So I’m out with some friends, when I see you again
But you’re not by yourself, you’re with someone else
A cowboy hat and a white “V” tee, but I don’t like the way he looked at me
It might be the whiskey, it might be the beer, it might be his ass if he comes over here.
He follows you as you walk through the crowd, when you spot me and you...

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.

Hey, look at me, I'm in prison, big deal, the walls of
Societal retribution keep me contained in a small
Confined space but I won’t be miserable about it. 
They feed me three meals a day, what can I say?
The convict’s norm is to gripe and complain,
But that won’t lessen my plight.
I won’t be like the many who cite abuses and...

The Angel Without Wings

As if she’s walking on air an angel glides into a room, “so captivating” commanding attention of all in attendance, her presence felt throughout one’s body so blissfully, as blood boils every nerve ending tingles with sensation with savoring lustful thoughts.

The Creator blesses the very best with such ambiance and only the best possess the magnetism to conjoin hearts...

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...

Sticks & Stones

Words of deception
Void of self-reflection
Taught a false reality
Why how can this be
This is all I’ve known
Blind leading the blind
So I had to find out on my own
Like a chemical or a poison
False realities and hypocrisy
Sifting through it all
With my eyes wide open
A closed mouth don’t get feed
So that’s why I started asking...

I lie awake on a long dark night
I can’t seem to control my mind anymore.
The pain and sadness are killing me inside
I can’t accept the life that is now mine.

This simple living without reason is my
desperate cry.
I’m trying to hold on, but the thought
of being alone is the reason I feel so
I’m worn out and cold.

Magnum Opus

Some nights I just sleep…
I sleep dreamless at times but…
When I do dream?...
I dream of Ancient Egypt. I dream of
My beautiful Queens and Kings in chambers
Surrounded by animals of different sorts.
I can smell frankincense and myrrh…
I feel sandstone beneath my feet…
I observe…as a child of the Goddess all the
Marvels of a...

I say spiritual, they say biblical.
I believe in self, they say it’s a miracle.
They believe in help, I believe it’s in the individual,
Living in hell has made me a little cynical.

I believe that doubt restricts the physical
and fear amounts to living miserable,
and it counts to be an individual
and what you're about will be residual.

And I...

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,...

I pray to God, hoping He’ll send me my best friend, girlfriend,
Fiancé, wife to me through this here pen-pal thing.
I’ll be the realest man she’ll ever know!
If your heart’s feeling what I’m saying, and you are looking
For a man like me, please get at me!!!
No lies, no games will make a strong relationship…
I’ll be waiting on you love!

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...

The hurt and pain I feel runs through me so deep.
That most nights it robs me of my sleep.
I’m all alone in this nightmare of mine.
I had hoped it would end if just given some time.
Never in my life did I figure this side of me I’d see.
I hate this feeling because of what it's doing to me.
I can’t understand what brought about this change
But I...

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....

Dano’s Girl

She has a lot to bring to the table
She can provide for her own
And has done many things on
her own strength.  When you come into
her life, offer your help and provide it
whether she freely accepts it or not. She
is independent, but that doesn’t mean she
doesn’t like having someone she can depend

She was a brave soul, a rebel at heart.

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.

A Freestyle Poem Off the Top of my Head

Beautiful creation of u so masterful mind…
In the beginning you were created for my purpose and time.
You came from me,
But overall you were the greatest creation of all time
Often looking like if you were created with extra thoughtfulness and time.
So beautifully constructed,
That your overall features make you intoxicating in mind.

Expression flaunts
The way we feel
On mocking taunts
Spieled for our kneel.

Do you - Be you
In the battle
Verses of you
Against prattle.

Turn down the bass
On the music
Tuned to debase
your Politick.

Sculpture pieces
Mouthed agape
In Expertise
Of your voices shape.

Canvass your art
With bold statements
Canvassed from heart...
