You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see

wrong like fire

~A Cowards Way~

Two legged dogs came, I fell 
Prey, Striking me from every direction
Leaving nothing untouched

I wrote this remembering how I got ambushed when I was little
By these neighborhood girls I once called my friends but when 
I found out they were trouble, I pulled away and made new friends
and that didn't sit well with them and they turned on me,and then 
one unsuspecting day they showed up at my house, all of them..none 
would fight me alone, they all wanted a piece of me and they got it, until 
my brother showed up...But that's a whole different story.It just showed me 
that not everyone is who they seem to be, they were cowards and from that 
moment on, I was careful of how I chose my friends..Thank God after those 
teenage years passed things got better...

Alone Or Alive

                 If today left me..

            Tasting my own breath..

Mind Game

heavy confused dreams
filled my night with restlessness
subconsciously awake

endlessly the mind wonders
every thought held as captive
unrelenting fear

the mind takes over
grandmaster of illusion
and I the pawn of the game

a mental torture
I mount my attack, countered
I awake, checkmate

God showed his anger;
The earth’s crust palpitated,
Haiti’s land buckled.

Two Worlds Colliding

                                                  teenage rebellion --
                                                potent emotions soar
                                                 hormones run amuck

                                             parents know what's best
                                             safe, moral boundaries set --
                                                     let the war begin

As poverty grows
in this place once of plenty...

So many cultures
quenched for masters of sameness...

"An individual whose conscious awareness is such that a sound becomes fused with a sense of color and taste; for whom each fleeting impression engenders a vivid, inextinguishable image; for whom words have quite different meanings than they do for us—such a person cannot mature in the same way others do, nor will his inner world, his life history tend to be like others'."

   Fading, coming to... fading-

      In the graveyard of my mind-

       Tell me where to go
          Tell me what to do! I fear-
             My sanity lost

Haunting dreams of what
could have been encompasses
my hope in darkness

The desires of my
heart continue to elude
me unceasingly

Leaving me to feel
as though I’m being punished
for my existence

I can’t comprehend
why my efforts at gaining
serenity fail

Still, I continue
striving for goals I haven’t
obtained, beseeching

The Almighty for
wisdom and patience so I’m
worthy of His grace

And our age a mystery

Breaking the chains of deceit
You will come undone
