Freedom is a valuable commodity
This is the first day, January 01, 2020.  It will never pass this way again. Yet in far too many countries, it is being denied, threatened and abolished.  Crowds of people have taken to the streets.  Many...Read More

BLACK SLAVERY
Unrewarded and unwilling slaves 
they were forced to be, against their will.
In saying that these people paved the way,
for economic foundations
Of the USA.
The south was the worst, 
The slaves working there
Felt cursed. 
Slaves worked on tobacco and rice plantations
For little...Read More

Keep it simple
I stand in erection like a British guard patrolling the keep
A private eye from nine to five but lose control when I sleep
Behold what I see is crime and sin that roams in the street
Your home, your retreat, the woods,...Read More

In the state of Kansas, sharing buffalo, shared lands with no lease.
The Iowa, Chippewa, Delaware, Kansas, Osage, Pawnee and Kickapoo,
Shared venison, and fresh cool streams with the Wyandotte too.

Assures me heavenly security from hell-fire’s indictment

Along His grant of everlasting life’s wondrousness

While upholding me in His kingdom-advancement

To serve HIM, ministering to others with love-involvement.

Guilty until proven
Five children, raped, tortured, murdered and buried on a bleak and desolute moor
Sentenced to whole life sentences were the perpertrators before they closed the door
Two police women lured into a trap and executed with a hand grenade cast
Another evil person...Read More

BLACK IN THE DAY
WE AS A PEOPLE HAVE ENDURED SO MANY THINGS FROM SLAVERY TO JIM CROW.

WE AS A PEOPLE MUST EMBRACE OUR HISTORY OR WE CANNOT GROW.

TIME HAS TAUGHT US THAT WE CAN OVERCOME WE CAN CONQUER AND WE CAN SURVIVE.

Love for Nature
I love all those who are never seen
Either met those or I keen to meet
From rural generous to urban polished
Either created or have been abolished

I love the wonders of this world
The covert nature guards so well
From those having no time...Read More

Aphorism
You abolished the golden rule 
No, this is not a lesson 
You would learn in school 
An assignment taught by life 
And that is treating others justifiable 
You have inverted 
My vitality...in a measure 
Meanwhile....you neglected
This earthen treasure 
Damn your...Read More

A painter sits
A painter sits
Alone and in solitude
Staring at a portrait
He paints of society
									
He starts at the bottom,
The beginning of time
It is wild and unkept
Colours outside of the lines

Animals, they roam
Without boundaries, birds soar
Evolution is yet
To rise from the core

Then he goes...Read More

Abducted and herded to the slave fortress of Lomboko for trade.

Sailing the Atlantic Middle Passage leg of the...Read More

I stand here free
wondering if I truly am

When I make as I please

It's A Crying Shame
George Washington would never believe it and call it a crying shame. I have observed the prohibition of prayer in public schools. Free speech is not free but is for sale to the highest bidder. Moreover, there is an attitudinal...Read More

Lord We Need You
The world became polluted by so many 
Harmful substances made-up by human being. 
We became object of bad situations, events,
Ideas and circumstances to this corrupt world.
We abolished the real and true purposes of our existence.
We consume your resources that you...Read More

What a city I murmur to myself looking at its map.
We approached the city known as Dis,
with its vast army and its burdened citizens.
At last we reached the moats
dug deep around the dismal city.
What destroys the poetry of a city?

Anti America
Children gunning and laboring.
Drugs and education illicit.
Streets abhorrent with torture and ignorant shame.
Politics the satire and voting abolished.
Quiet voices and raging emotions stir the pot of immigration.
Strong and brave is silent as a 20's cinema.
Liquor and cigarettes cancerous wounds never...Read More

Mother Nature
mother nature 

we once fantasised about the air,
the nature, the galaxies before there were billionaires.
we once cherished this gift we had,
before the monsters destroyed it with a plan.

“it was for a better future” they said,
they destroyed, vanished, the nature we...Read More

The nostrils sniffing the odor of violence

We waited for the day this will be abolished

The Essence of Me

Born in the Goshen ghetto,
bound by an Ashkenaz forged umbilical chain
Beloved mother was Jim Crow lynch poor,
adored father was the Uncle Sam same

pauper freed allegedly
But royal blood their ancestors  
sweaty tears did bleed
From the Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob...Read More
