As the Sun Rises

From out of the smoke we will rise
The weight of these chains we will break
From his face we will rip the deceitful guise
The spirit of our brothers and sisters we will wake

My blood flows free yet I do not weaken
My feet clothed in blisters yet I feel no pain
For my children’s lives I will not bargain
Though my anger burns my calm will remain

From beneath his foot our people we will remove
The hate he has implanted we will unbind with fire
The lies he  feeds  the blind  we will disprove
We will watch him drown in desperation’s mire

With only a stance we will shake every plain
With only a look we shine with the force of the sun
My feet clothed in blisters yet I feel no pain
My blood flowing free yet I will not weaken

As The Wind Blows

When you feel a warm wind caress your face, do you think of me
Do you hear a soft voice whispering as it rustles the leaves

Sit, close your eyes; do you smell the soft scent carried on the wind
Listen to the trees, they sing a song that was meant to never end

So is the strength of my love, able to be with you though I am not there
Caressing your face through the breeze, its essence carried on the air

The song of the trees, the whisper in the wind, listen with your heart
I am calling to you love, our bodies separated for a time, but our spirits never apart

 

...memories of a loved one transcend time and space; they are always with you.

A Woman From God

A Woman from God

I do not cover my eyes because God gave me sight; just as he did man
I do not cover my face because God made the sun to shine on it; just as it does man
I do not hold my voice because God made it beautiful; just as he did man
I do not hold my thoughts because God gave me sense; just as he did some men
He gave me a mind that I may know one day I will see a better place than this
…that I might hold on to the hope of living where life is no longer ruled by the arrogance of man

He told me I was a complement; that I balance the one for whom I was made.
….because I too was made in His image.

Birth of the Poet

Birth of the Poet When there are feelings so deep that you cannot express I will bring them out with words that embrace When there is anger that would only manifest through violence I can bring release without a drop of blood shed As your heart leaps for joy from the love coursing throughout I magnify its value and prolong its affects I can take your soul and give it wings I can take your heart and render it in two With only words I will make you desire With mere syllables I can make you climax I am the keeper of every domain I am the wielder of every emotion I AM Poetry

Poetic Manifestation

With each supple curve I am further enchanted
Ready to succumb with every lingual verse
Wholly captivated by each whisper granted
Overcome by need as in each line I immerse

Sensual expressions caress my wanting soul
While jagged words ignite hidden carnal thoughts
Painted sentences tease in lace and stilettos
While metaphors subdue with leather and garrotes

When engorged analogies slide between inviting lips
Analytic paragraphs build toward climactic declaration
Overwhelmed by wordplay and coupletic courtships
I acquiesce to her power and emerge the incarnation

Moonlit Growth

 

Weaving moonlit cords of poetic magic
Hina laces emerald beads of nature
Softly stroking slumbering roots to wake now
        Spring is arriving

Spoken Word Demo - I Stand

(audio attached)

I wasn't given aspirations as a child; only told I'd be a mother and wife 
....yet here I stand

I was never told growing up that boys would be cruel and girls would be fake; 
....but here I stand

No one ever told me that when I embraced my heritage the people that would hate me most would be my own 
....yet still I stand

I didn't know that when I became a woman I would see just how many men hit their wives 
....but here I stand

And I was NEVER told that I would end up on my knees in tears or have knives stabbed through my heart but THIS woman, this woman that I am 
I will always stand!

Pain Beyond Alone

Death is only the beginning
Death is the end of pain
Pain of the body
Pain within hearts
Hearts that tear
Hearts that break
Break my spirit
Break my soul
Soul of the innocent
Soul of the guilty
Guilty of labels
Guilty of hate
Hate that breeds
Hate that blinds
Blinds intelligence
Blinds the eyes
Eyes that discern
Eyes that see truth
Truth of our origins
Truth of a matter
Matter of fact
Matter of conscience
Conscience that protects
Conscience that guides
Guides the wise
Guides the strong
Strong in spirit
Strong in mind
Mind that sways
Mind that decides
Decides an outcome
Decides a fate
Fate which is chance
Fate that is life
Life has no box of chocolates
Life gives no sweets for free
Free is relative
Free is what we take
Take her hand in yours
Take the ring he offers
Offers promise of happiness
Offers his heart to give
Give without cost to you
Give without taking back
Back to where it resides
Back to being alone 
Alone as in the beginning
Alone with only his pains 
Pains…
Beginning….

The Kingdom of Ghali

The Kingdom of Ghali

Welcome to our peaceful home
Where cotton candy clouds and free thinkers roam
Meet jester Jack who keeps a smile on all
Reinforced by Sir Drake with his radio wherewithal
And don’t miss maidens Becca and Charma
Who keep the Queen’s peace with their shining aura

Oh the Queen? Who is she? you ask

She will warm your heart but do not cross her
For I hear to one she decreed “I Hope You Suffer”
But here she rules fair over the azure seas
No, there is no other like Queen Eileen of Ghali  

Her admiring scribe,
FJ Thomas

My apologies Highness; this should have never been removed when I left.
It is, after all, for you ;)
