Fret
Why is everyone upset?
I sink down in regret
I think of all the debt

We owe cuz of our sins..
Tossed down in trash bins
I am a dolphin without fins

I am down and about
I will rise above the doubt
There is an in, so...Read More

Black Universe Slam
There is a world above ours

Built opon fire and flowers

Where the other's live

Who only the enlightened can see

Whilst scratching like crusty leaves

Tumbling down a garden path after dark

As other's soundly sleep

Never knowing a sunset under moon 

Glows more fierce on...Read More

Premium Member THE SONG OF THE LADYBIRD
When watery chains no longer hold me :

Behold........my nonexistence is now complete 
I am scattered among Time’s elusive paths 
Where the end begins with the beginning of the end 
Where gods serve no purpose 
Where energy speaks louder than sound...Read More

Just One T To Trust
Imagine looking out on your gate
so beautifully shining like brand new
then after years of rain and wind
rust reveals itself so awfully blue

This is a picture revealing our inner core
our outlook so bare lacks real trust
this present crisis puts us to...Read More

Premium Member Towards Euston
I fixed my eyes on railway tracks
Outside our speeding train.
Some veered right to hide in grass
And some met up again.

Having ripped apart a patchwork field
We approached a town somewhere
Whose platform had a waiting room
But whose name was just a blur.

We...Read More

Premium Member The Depth of Wood


Some old houses have a deep wood,
they are not built flat but have arboreal columns and porticos,
piazza, balustrades, loggia, gables and cupola. 
There are rooms that jut outward like separate tree houses. 

When you walk into such a house at...Read More

THE LORD IS ON OUR SIDE
We've been exposed to too much discrimination
Simply because we are Black
Our African heritage appears to be
Like a target on our backs
Some cops believe that over us
They had the power of death and life
But we as a people we put our...Read More

NOW IS THE TIME

Chaos, confusion and uncertainty
Are choking the nation

What Matters Most
What struck me most—
the sameness of it all.
Drivers, nearly faceless—
their time and miles drifting
slowly into past. 

On their way to
strike a bargain:
life energy for money to
buy things, which like them
must surely age and die. 

Ask the earth
who possesses it?
Who owns...Read More

Last Blind Ascent
Climbing each rung of the rotting ladder,
my wishes snapped one by one

The beanstalk looming high above,
its vines blocked out the sun

Grounding my desires and aspirations,
like a bird with broken wings

My hope tried one last blind ascent
—to where the Angel’s sing

Unending Love
I don’t hold any authority,
I am small compared to Your enormity.
Why then have I been rescued,
Who am I to have been pursued?

His is the power, He is the glory,
I am but a piece to unfold in His story.

When you supersede your profession you become Caren
Above and beyond

Both profession and calling

I only wish every child has a teacher

Like Caren in life

Then not a single child

Would ever be left behind

And have a fighting chance

To advance

Premium Member April
April is,
this time of year,
where everything must grow.

To take,
upon itself in the year,
where pride to thee,
is it shown?

Sown is,
the tree’s we look,
that spits about its buds.

The flower that seeks,
to emerge from the earth.

Comes through, 
to exalt itself,
from its birth,
that it...Read More

Premium Member Things You Miss
A thing I'd never seen before
A spider dwelt above my door,
Him or his web I'd never seen
Until we all got quarantined.

For more than half the time you're out,
Now that we are stuck indoors
We can sit...Read More

Sick of Sorrow: I Will Make It
Buried alive by your goodbyes
Airborne dead by your senseless lies
Overcoming feelings of hurt,
Seeking first His comfort

Drenched in silence 
While the waters rinses away
The dread from my head
The squalid grief left me
Breathless for only a moment,
Then it disappears instead

The bird of prey
After a day 
That made me sweat.
I go to the pool
in the terrace to become wet.

Since it was 
During rainy monsoon
The clouds appeared after 
The sunny noon.

After a fun 
And satisfying swim
I gazed at the clouds above
The sky that’s dim.

I...Read More
