FINAL FLIGHT

  On September 1,1969, 
 A little boy came into this world
  It was a day of excitement
  Especially for one little girl

  You see, on that day, he became a part of our family tree;
  But, also on that special day, he became a part of me!

  We're not flesh of the same flesh nor bone of the same bone,
  But sent from up above, to be a part of the same family,
  To be able to share our love.

  So, you see that little boy who was born that day,
  was more special than any other;
  For on September 1, 1969, that little boy became my brother.

  He always knew what he wanted to do from the time he was knee-high;
  He often watched for airplanes, and how he wanted to learn to fly

  We all know he was living his dream and enjoying life all the way,
  But, that doesn't make it any easier to say goodbye to him today.

  But, in my heart, I know his FINAL FLIGHT he did complete;
   It ended when he landed in HEAVEN at Jesus' feet!

The way things use to be

The way things use to be

                                            I had an older brother, but I don’t remember when.
I shared his private moments, I still see him now and then.
My parents never taught us how to need and love each other.
So I spent my life at odds with my other little brother.

One time somebody asked me where’s was my family from.
I didn’t have an answer. I was feeling pretty dumb.
Although we weren’t tore up, like families sometimes are.
The times we spent together were mostly in the car.

I had a little brother once upon a time.
I use to wonder curiously if he was really mine.
We had our silly moments and some I can’t forget. 
But the moments that stay with me, are the ones that I regret.

I have an older sister who means a lot to me. 
But we lost our sense of kinship, now we hardly disagree.
It’s not that we stopped talking or trusting how we play.
It’s just that there’s no meaning, in the words we try to say.

My parents were confusing when they took an others child.
I guess they thought they had the love, to last us all a while.
But I spent my childhood all alone playing in my basement. 
I couldn’t help the things I felt. This child was my replacement.

Now I’m just an angry man sitting in my room. 
Waiting for the other shoe to drop, I hope it happens soon.
As I think of all the things I learned and the talents I display.
The important things you think of, are the things that get you laid.

Tomorrow morning I’ll wake up and live another day. 
I’ll call a friend and say hello, cause that will make his day.
Then after lunch I’ll see a guy who will sing and play for me. 
It’ll bring back precious moments of the way things use to be.

Never Thought It Would Happen

We began so little and young, 
Life beat us bad and twisted our tongue.
You and I walked a pretty rough road I can say
When you stumbled I was always there to make you stay.

Stay and not give up, I didn't give up on you than, so I wont give up on you now, 
We danced our life so brutally and softly, but this time you didn't look my way and bounced. 
I thought we would go on like this forever, but I guess like people say, 
Nothing lasts forever.

brother

I'm writing now oh big bro
Oh! sorry I forgot, yes you said no
To say goodbye and to let you know
That you'll be on my mind wherever I 
go
Well you know I'll never be ur pussy 
cat nor teddy bear
Whatever you wanna call me now...I 
dnt care
You think you're the one who's hurt, 
well you're wrong dear
The truth is that I'm the one suffering 
here
No no plz dnt you ever apologize
I'm the one who's sorry for telling 
lies
To you?! Yeah right that's what you 
have always thought
But I was lying to myself believe it or 
not
No more stories,no more pain
Gonna spread my wings, fly in the 
rain
Now each one is going his own way
Well that is all I have to say
If you change your mind I'll be 
waiting for you
Ready do hear and forgive like I 
always do
The fact is you'll never know what 
you did to me
Though I'll never consider you as an 
enemy
Oh how I wish to hear from you 
these words
Saying, sister come close to me, 
together we will run the world.

Poem 4 Birthday

Your birthday is indeed  a great time of gaiety,
It calls for a  celebration, a Grand Poetic Party
But, what I have just said is only  a secondary
Most importantly, your life is great and healthy.

I am writing this poem first and foremost,
To send my love and best wishes  to the most
 For all the  dreams of yours, let’s make a toast
May they  all be fulfilled without any cost.
 
Since, I don’t have here your complete address,
I cannot send you chocolates, cakes or roses
So, I’ll just send my fervent  prayer for success
To God, He may protect you, guide you and bless.

I will also enclose  in these  lines of my poem,
My songs of bliss for you and your family at home,
 May  you be free from all worries and gloom
Age added  but, you’re a gal who incessantly bloom.

Of blood stains the dooryard

So when i play this beautiful music,

you shatter your eyes at me,

an when i talk and speak so clearly,

you whisper when the angels don't see,

so my spirits of jade and hopes are so true,

you ask them, oh what could he be,

when i sing so beatiful just like a bird,

you glare and stare at the trees,

oh when i touch you when we pray together ,

you turn your back on to me,

oh when it is, our children do play,

you give them but only till three,

do you worship and praise this place in glory, or is he just real to me,

I always thought that I was the wrong,

but lately my eyes can see.

idk

What does a normal teen do? What does a normal teen think? 
I really do not no. yes I am a teen but when I was 15 ½  I thought about how to take care of my mom if she needed to be changed and when to feed her and when to give her medication. I worried about what would happen to my mom. I had to go shopping for toddler cloths for my little sister and brother. I am 17 now and I still go shopping for little children cloths. I worry about getting my homework done and getting my little brother and sister’s homework done. This year I have to take the kids to kinder garden and I will be in 12th grade. I always worry about what’s going to happen to my mom she is still sick but there’s nothing I can do just keep her in my heart and prayers. I worry about what I will do when its time for me to go to college I will still be taking care of my brother and sister. There’s a lot to do I worry all the time about money things being washed and cleaning and homework. My dad does a lot for me and my sisters and brothers I just wish my big sisters would have stepped up and helped my dad take care me and my little sister and brother but they didn’t now i am trying to do all the things my mom did. It is a lot of work mothers have to do. I thought it was easy but now that I have to do it all I can say mothers are what keeps a family in order. Thanks to all the moms out there. If you have moms don’t take her for granted because you never know what will happen to them.

TEA CUP PUP

A pup that’s in a cup
A cup that’s under a pup
A pup that’s as cute as a button
All of the sudden 
The pup is cuddling 
With all the loving 
There is no ruffling
For the fluffy puppy
That cute tea cup pup
Is what’s up?

i couldnt

i couldnt ease your pain
the day your brother died
all i could do was hold you 
and along with you i cried

i know your heart is broken
cause your love for him went unspoken
but i believe he,s looking down
from heaven up on high
in time you,ll start to heal 
from having to tell your brother goodbye

Broken Alone

Broken Alone, 
not enough support,
to much weight,
so easy to hate,
little choices,
to much time,
 everywhere I turn,
no one to find,
left alone,
in the dark,
suffering great,
for me,
to late,
what's done is done,
no turning back,
alone again,
I see the crack,
in my soul,
I bear it for you,
but your not there,
were you ever?,
it's been so long,
I am not sure,
stuck alone,
hurt's to the core,
take the blame,
I can't deny,
such great shame,
still can't cry,
in my mind,
I walk an empty road,
Forever alone,
your secret showed,
always had my doubts ,
about your faith,
kept my eye's closed,
to your disgrace,
can't be surprised,
I saw it coming,
don't know what to do,
filled with fear,
The only one I trust, end could be near,
feel heavy,
cross to bear,
must find someone,
willing to share,
fooled myself,
too many times,
to many miles,
no more fake smiles,
numb to pain,
can not gain,
numb to all,
I've hit the wall,
scared and alone,
I don't want to bear it,
for him back,
I'd kill I swear it,
the only one who truly cared,
I pray I find you everyday,
yours alone my heart not shared,
thought I had another,
her beauty shined,
her heart divided,
can't be mine,
tried to take you,
maybe waited to long,
when I'm gone,
this is your song,
her house divided,
I could not stand,
when you cried,
I should've held your hand,
can not blame you,
I know I've shamed you,
waited to long,
another sad song,
saw you as perfect,
or am I blind?,
can't commit,one more kind,
I quit,
for good,
wish you would come to me,
I know that song,
but can't remember the words,
its our song,
As I lay you down,
fly away,
here I come,
are you there,
will you run,
down that empty road,
its just me,
I hope you'll come,
this time I'll let you see,
last chance,
I'll throw you a bone,
until we meet,
I'll stay Broken Alone.

Shame on me

Cold gentle nights,
as owls wings flutter of these same ole lights,
I'm a sayin ,"you my good friend",
for the same ole empty faces, doin the same ole sin.

Cursed you, do these things to me,
for my body is a dangling from beyond the tree,
is it only in you i see,
just the same ole friendly me.

Why it is you hate me boss,
I know that all things are taken with a cost,
remember the nights the gentle frost,
when i spoke of the blessings when all was lost.

But the same ole empty faces, doin the same ole sin,
i knew you was just like um, but still my friend,
a letter to you, still my good friend!!!

Better Place

Your in the better place now but I want you here
But in the better place you cry no tears you have no fears
But I just want you here
Without any pain
But when your here everyday's a day without rain
Just like the better place
I'd love to again just see your face 
But times ticking fastly for us to re-unite
And times ticking more for the day too I will see the light
But your in the better place which is beyond high
so me being human can not touch the sky
But I wish I had wings like like those in the better place 
Because I would start elevating and leave no trace
So I can see you again and feel your warm embrace
but im not coming back for heaven is beautiful and great
I'm forever gone Out of state, I'm onto the better place

Remembering you Brother

Remembering you Brother

 
God was looking down on you brother, I saw him Standing on his promise.

I quickly said I'll be a witness I have precious memories of my brother.

You were preparing to leave and I wanted you to stay, so I begin to speak for you brother. My heart was filled with grief as the tears were falling down my face. 

You slowly turn to me and said 'my eyes have seen the glory' then you turn your head and said 'pass me not'

I was so deeply sadden then a voice said 'you'll understand it better by and by'

I will remember you brother, 
it is well with my soul because some glad day after while, 
when we all get to heaven, 
we will gather down by the riverside, 
we will give God praise, 
forever we will worship him, 
Oh... what a happy day that will be.

untitled

He is still
like a painting in a window.
The midday traffic passes him by,
as he sits there quivering day in and day out.
Horrified, hungry, scared
just sitting there no where to go.
The night begins to trap him,
exhausted his eyelids close.
Day. He hears a voice of hope,
he sees a gentle hand reach out.
Confused from the hunger
he attempts to make noise.
He sees a friend.
He is found and hugged in relief

lost and found

Im lost in this darkness this 
world of destruction my brother 
is not my brother and our 
mother loves us not running 
with many only a few with 
flashlights who will make it to 
the light as the night grows 
stronger I feel as if I'm weaker  
laughing with those who laugh 
at me and not with me we can 
not be friends because no one 
knows what that is anymore I 
can not love because I haven't 
felt it before I can not give you 
truth because no one showed 
me how, I can not care for you 
because Im careless for self i 
am running alone in this 
darkness with many running too 
some have flashlights but while 
running i open my eyes realizing 
it was never dark eyes wide 
shut is what my grandmother 
says find love in yourself child 
let pain and anger go i feel like 
I've been alone for a long time 
all the while god was with me 
the whole time, i gave my mind 
to the streets my body to those 
not deserving my heart to those 
who didn't need it, they came 
and gone ripping me into pieces 
i found comfort in sin with all 
the sinners but he saved me 
because I'm worth it to him 
GOD came into my room while i 
laid in the dark drugged up and 
drunk and he kissed me and 
said my child NO PAIN, I LOVE 
YOU EVEN THO YOU DONT LOVE 
YOU I HAVENT GIVEN YOU 
ANYTHING I DIDNT FEEL YOU 
COULD HANDLE, my mother 
killed herself, my husband was 
murdered in front of me what 
do i have to live for why not run 
threw darkness no one cares 
how i feel inside they take i 
give, YOU HAVE KNOWLEDGE 
USE IT, but it was a dream or 
was it i have opened my eyes 
wide open i feel i am loved i am 
worth it i am blessed!!!!!!

realest i ever wrote

POEM BY:SMILEY BADGETT
****REALEST I EVER WROTE****

GOD IS THE ONLY ONE THAT SEEMS TO ANSWER ME WHEN I'M CALLING HIM COLLECT,
OBAMA'S TRYING TO MAKE A CHANGE I'M STILL WAIT ON THE TEXT,
LIVING LIFE GOOD MEANS PRAYING TO YOUR GOD NOT WAITING ON A CHECK,
WHAT YOU SAYING YOU NEED IS ALWAYS SOMETHING YOU REGRET,
I'M DONE JUDGING PEOPLE THAT'S HOW I SHOW RESPECT,
I SEE LIFE DIFFERENT THAN ALL Y'ALL THAT'S SOMETHING Y'ALL DON'T GET,
AND IN ORDER TO CHASE YOUR DREAMS YOU HAVE TO GO TO SLEEP FIRST,
THE BEST SAYING THIS YEAR IS THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK FIRST,
I'M TO WISE TO BE ARGUING WITH YOU USING CHEAP WORDS,
LOOK WHAT I BEEN THROUGH TRY TO FEEL WHAT I FELT,
PAIN, LOVE, AND REGRETS DO YOU SEE WHAT I JUST SPELLED,
HELL NO YOU'LL NEVER GET,
MY HAT YOU'LL NEVER FIT IT,
GANG-BANGING I WAS NEVER WITH IT,
PRAYERS ALWAYS FIRST, IT WAS NEVER WISHES...DAMN DEEP S***
THANKS FOR THE COMMENT!!!!

the dream wedding story

i remember the long pink gown.
the flower's in her hair.
she had brown wavey hair.
then there was those shiney glass slippers.
her family said she looked like cinderella with  brown hair.
she thought she heard you may kiss the bride.
then she woke up and the sound she heard was just the rain outside her window.
then she laughed and said wait im already married!

Siste Wm Mary

Sister Wm. Mary

I never learned a lesson when I was still a child.
My father didn’t have the time so I just ran wild.
Mama told me, “God would never leave my side”. 
But I’ve been alone all my life with no one as a guide.

I was a young man on a journey through life. 
Always wonder how I’d make out when I took a wife.
I wanted to be cool but I didn’t understand.
Why an under sexed nun would take me by the hand.

When she touched me unexpectedly in a private place. 
I pushed her hand away and she slapped my face.
She told me to be still, it isn’t going to hurt.
I wondered what she’s thinking as she lifted up my shirt.

My teardrops fell my heart beat fast, it seemed to last so long.
And as I shook she stroked my hair, I knew that this was wrong.
I took the long way home that day hoping for relief. 
But I knew I could tell no one it’s too hard to believe.

And so it went on for the next couple years. 
I noticed a change when I cried without tears.
No one else noticed as I began to withdraw.
Not my mother or my father, no one at all.

So I fought back the tears and I tried to pretend. 
I swore that I’d kill her if she touched me again.
I asked God to help me but he never came.
Then it suddenly dawned on me, I was to blame.

Now here I sit weary almost sixty one.
 Depressed and exhausted with no place to run.
So when I was asked who took my cherry,
All I can say, “it was sister Wm. Mary”.

Heaven Is Your New Home

As the sunrise shines upon my face
A tear drop falls from my eye
The warmth gives me comfort
I feel your presence
What else to represent you besides the sun
The most powerful source of energy in the sky
I look away, what do I see, 
The moon, opposite the sun
Look in between night and day, the clouds move in fast toward me 
It's mid day
Still you consume my entire mind
Your in my dreams; day and night
Our initials, P.M. A.M.; night and day, like our personalities, yet one. Opposites attract. 
Brother and sister, bestfriends at birth
No longer are you with me on Earth. 
My angel in the sky
Your new home is Heaven

Brother, I have my own path

You whom I built my life around, brother
You created a bound that was unmissed 
A line of love built with memories 
Now, you’ve decided to move on 
A sister with out a brother, her shadow 
I’m left here to think about what went wrong
The bound declared on me 
I forced my self to believe 
Now I can let go
But my brother I have awakened
I can let go and walk my own path
For I my brother am no longer in need of your love
I need you no longer to help build my dreams 
Or walk the path of uncertainty side by side.

CONDEMNED

For human face of death
umbilical cord need not
extend. The darkness takes care of 
unblemished ghost of sun.
Intergalactic scan remains unseared,
trench warfare continues unabashedly.

Between brothers, the greed calls
for incendiary attacks, for total annihilation.
To achieve the illusion, the blurred statement
feeds the imagination. Deaddiction starts
a race. Deafness of the tunnel. The black
knees crawling on coals.

No night was safe from the condemned suicide.
The creator had the absurd designs.
Why not now the confessional stick,
to beat the darkness? Memory of light
becoming stronger. Give me your hand
to reach the ceremonial peak.

Eager To See You Once More

I sleep more now
Depression sets in
Misunderstood until I stood before your ashes
A room full of people; lifeless due to your absence

I sleep more now
With hopes, prayers, and dreams we will meet again
Anxious to see that smile once more
Oh, how you lit up a room 
A smile like no other 
A smile that made others feel warm inside
Now my sorrow and sadness is something I conceal
I shield my feelings from the world around me
There was no bond like ours
Unexplainable, unbreakable and seldom understood by others

I sleep more now 
To see your face once more
I take the chance and close my eyes night after night, but receive no sign.
I continue to sleep in hopes to catch one more glimpse of you

You lit up my life more than I think you knew
Your absence is something I must get accustom to

DARK MOONLIGHT

Watching from pin hole
lamps of baked clay.
Every thorn was in my flesh.

I was losing my voice
in crowd of maniacs.
Dragonflies climbing on worn leather.

Through cracked sunroof –
skull splinters into million heirlooms.
Fever climbs the feudals.

Why were you impatient with me?
I was narrating a shocking tale.
Frogs had acquired the land.

Plot was thickening every day.
Take me if you can, in the heavy shower
of meteorites in dark moonlight.

GIVE ME SOME POISON TO LIVE

Give me,
some poison to live
I had been dead
for many years.

I burn my hands on a flame,
blank space has started talking.
I am ill at ease –
My lips are not moving.

The pellets, the bullets, the steel –
nothing matters now.
Dirty games can go on,
I am going on bromides
to ejaculate the pain.

Sleep will not come in dark
nor the relief in white robes.
I will remain awake till eternity.

Give me,
some thorns to bleed.
Rose petals
are hurting now.

GLORIFIED DISCREETLY

Living on margin he was deceived again.
A grasshopper was perched on door
shedding green pigment.

Granary was empty and he was,
worried about the health of nation.
Glare and splendor always hurt his eyes.

In the name of prosperity, leftovers
set the dirty houses apart
from polished faces.

He was again afraid of interior –
bursting with statements of elegance,
releasing the bald answers to nettled questions.

The stench was glorified discreetly,
giving a pause to sorrow.
Who was destroying the sweetness?

Memories of My Brother

My youngest one summer came and stayed with me
I was in the Navy stationed in Millington, TN
One day he was involved in a rock fight
A busted open head led him to the hospital that particular night
He asked me when they have to do stitches what do they use
I laughed and said a sewing machine, he wasn't amused
After a couple of weeks, his head healed up fine
To remove them would be sixty dollars to pay for the doctor's time
I told my brother I would be the doctor and do a house call
To my amazement I removed them all
I regret the day I sent him back home
He was pretty much all alone
He would give me a call always collect
Though the phone got high I would always accept
One evening, as I walked in the door, the phone rang and I said here goes the 
phone bill
But it wasn't  him, it was my brother Larry saying Wayne had just been killed
Wayne had decided to take Dad's pickup out for a joy ride
On an icy road, he lost control, hit a bridge support and smashing in the driver's 
side
His lifeless body was lying face down
In a ditch where he was found
The doctor said he suffered no pain
My brother Kenny found Wayne's ball cap, bloodying his hands, his nightmares 
still remain
To this day I carry the guilt about the bill when the phone rang
How much I miss my brother Wayne
My brother David is an emotionless guy
But at the wake he had to cry
Life has a way of taking its toll
Always try to look at the glass half full

WET LANDSCAPE

A saddened rain drop 
strikes me at the face.
When town is burning,
its dignity confronts me with force.  
A human clone rises 
like a smoke from the ruins 
of our nerves. 
Why the love has evaporated 
from our hearts?

In new spread of palaces, 
upside down roots grow with regrets. 
The dark woods depart,
small grasses peel off. 
the wounds of earth.
Tomorrow the half glory 
of our greed will be exhibited 
and leaves will burn.

Now a clearing has been made. 
Sun smiles, bakes the bones. 
The water of life 
has been denied to us. 
Beaming technology buries the classical path, 
the book and the eros. 
The wet landscape cries.

Medusa's Brother

Girls look in your direction and see you comin' 
In the opposite direction, they start runnin' 
You claim you are in excellent shape 
Your face is a train wreck and you cinch in your gut with electrical tape 
You drive a Yugo, it's color is Slime Green 
You say you are just over run with bling bling 
How can you claim you have the perfect life 
You are married to an inflatable wife 
Women look at you and begin to cuss as they run for cover 
Somebody spray painted a name on the car, it reads Medusa's Brother 
You have no clue why everyone calls you M B 
You believe they are saying M D, you think it's short for Mac Daddy 
You wear your favorite tee shirt that reads World's Greatest Lover 
In the females eyes you will always be Medusa's Brother 
Well M B, for you there is some bad news 
You will always be singing the lonely man's blues 
You have asked M TV to pimp your ride 
They can fix your car but your face you can't hide 
You say well, I guess it's true, a man's best friend is his mother 
But did occur to you, your mom also calls you Medusa's Brother

OF A VIRGIN GOD

Partly clad
full moon
was taking a bath on hills.
Trees were waiting
for the curtains to rise.

Scented stars would make
giant scars on the clouds,
I would make peace with the sky.
Lids of human greed were laden
with golden dust, I was hoisting the skull.

Of a virgin god who did not
want to live for the blotched up creation.
The decline was obvious. Truth 
had refused to climb
on the sky-blue, salted peaks of springs.

Body had arrived,
mourners quietly wailing.
Gouged eyes could not decipher
the script on the halved pyramid.
Sun was sucking the clay.

ALLIGATORS WERE DYING

I always differed
for the sake of semblance.
Feathers did not agree.
You flew away for your sky.

Impatience had killed the defeat
my elixir, the baby sea in my eyes.
Genocide of the figs, unlearning
the sweetness of life.

Yet a white python was hungry.
A heart rendering feat to dig-out
a home after the earthquake.
Alligators were dying in midstream.

I was running after the desert.
Why bustards were disappearing?
Trees were hung upside down.
There was no suicidal note.

AN ANODE WILL DISCHARGE

Your window
was very small.
Why did not you throw the dice?
Walk away
without a want?

I had no courage
to tell the lies,
to hold the secrets
of brave tears,
which failed to live in red-bricked house.

And a naked womb
protecting the fetus
from scars and curtains,
will find a anointed bed to sleep for eternity,
for delivering, a new star.

An anode will discharge
on a galactic light,
a message of the hungry
birds of prey.
Death wants its share of flesh.

VALENTINE

Your body in mud pack
in line of fire
suddenly finds a lover.
I was watching with concern.

Cup of soul, lined with abrasive desires
was empty. Do not go raging in the 
sea, to collect the salt.
The pink eye tells the boom.

We may meet again, may not.
I was leaving behind
a trail of exiled skulls on sand.
The ghosts had left the home waking up

On periphery of trembling moon.
The door did not open for apocalypse.
I fell over long stemmed roses
since life was very desperate!
