Money may not be
Key. But it speaks loud and clear.
The mean green echos.

Not the beauty
Of flowers they hold.
Tongue knows-
Not the beauty
Of words, unspoken.

In darkness.
Nothing
But an immaculate shadow;
A mere silhouette
Against the light
Of the world.

my 
dreams
wisely

What makes me tick

The empty page of an old sage is what needs to be filled.
To instill peace and then engage in what should not be killed.

Catching Fire

Catching Fire
Some of us are watching the skies for works of fire
While some of us are quietly catching it.

Which are you?

Sorry

Forgive my senses/ 
I turn to hurt invisible angels/
Speak in turntable bible verses/
Painting stanzas in graffiti sounds/

Sans Servile

In sang-froid, sass cords:
Sangoma dashes siren,
Thunder crashes trunk;
Sarky banters with lippy.
Spim for Santa maidenhead.

Another Quote from Daisy

Remember to do;
What you listen to.





Another word of wisdom I had my children to SPEAK so that they would remember it.

Spring's End, Kimo

Spring bellows plainly throughout the mid-west
Tornado Alley endures 
the voice of EF-4’s.

Kiss

Read my lips.
With your lips. 
They’re saying kiss,
Kiss me.
In the rain,
In the back of my car.
Read my lips that are saying,
Don’t break my heart.

Judgement

If only i could give you pictures of my thoughts/

If only the paint never dried up/

If you only gave me a chance to dance in my portraits/

I would be more than poetic/ 

Short Spoken Word poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details | |

If Thought

If (all) thoughts are words
To (easily) come by exactly
As internally initiate,
Believe me, no word thinks,
Will go un-remind.

- Abdulhafeez Oyewole.

Sin

Hate
For myself
Regret 
Every day.
Love
Lost again.
Losing
The way.
Thoughts
In my head.
Wont
Go away.
Emotion 
Wont stay
Cold
And alone.
Fualt 
Is my own
Heart
Broken again.
Drenched
In my sin.

P E A C E

strive for a PIECE of you in your words/
motivation ENTRAPPED by unholy baboons/
expect less ALOOF poetry shapes political cartoons/
words travel COOLER when your heart’s cold/
emerge spoken rage ELECTRIFIED by hope/

Short Spoken Word poem by Casarah Nance| Details | |

Rumors Whispered

Tip toe
On silent words
We know


Secrets
The heart hides lies
Forgets

Hushed hopes
Gone...but not gone
Love copes

Pain Train

Death
Destruction
Debauchery
The gangs have no remorse
don't get in their way or 
you will become a statistic
They don't fear the police and
flourish in prison
How can they change
Is there a way
Education
Jobs
Religion
