COVID-Nineteen in Twenty-twenty
Everyone's quarantined, I'm out of Thorazine
Stuck in the house, me and my spouse

When we woke up today, no lights on Broadway
It was shut down, my New York town

Stores out of toilet paper, stuck in a skyscraper
For fifteen days, stay six...Read More

Such a short distance,
As Time has now Run Dry;
On a world so abused,
even God begins to cry.
A world we now have, that continues to betray;
The innocence of our children and the smiles they display...
Forced into the evils of a man's...Read More

Dark and mischievous clouds of deceit hang over the palace of the pharaoh's 
The people once again 'in their 'droves gather 'call out and speak what has been placed into their tired and abused souls .

Do not say it is not your country

I know that corruption has slept cheerfully in the arms of our home 
Beautiful teenage girls have been raped 
on a daily basis 
School-going boys have been sodomized due to job vacancy 

I know that Liberia has lost its charming...Read More

I Won't Let My Guard Down This Time
I shut down
I'm broken down
But, I will rise
You'll soon realize
With your starlit eyes
That I am not afraid anymore

I won't let my guard
Like I did before
I know life can get hard
My wings will soar

We are shimmering bright like pretty stars
Will someone...Read More

Premium Member INVITATION
Sometimes I feel like Cinderella.
Like I’m used and abused by folk 
that’s supposed to care.
Like I’m the ugly duckling that 
didn’t turn into a swan.
But at the end of the day, I realize 
I don’t have the typical outward 
beauty.(...Read More

Abused and vaporized

The two village clocks
Point their hands at me
While I spiral down an empty well

Nauseous and waiting to burst 
I point my eyes upwards 
Into the blackness

Where is that candle 
That flashlight 
That hint of bright
Everyone talks about

When...Read More

Of all the men who gambled there on the hill that day,
I felt I’d be the winner when I began to play.
And sure enough, it happened!  I shouted out for glee
When all the lots were cast there, the...Read More

Does anyone really care about the homeless on the streets?
Does anyone really care about the drug addicts that are looking for peace?
Does anyone really care about the abuse that children endure?
Does anyone really care about the chance for medical breaks...Read More

Arguing with the Muse,
spirit abused

Arguing with the Muse,
always refused

Arguing with the Muse,
soul to confuse

Arguing with the Muse

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
I know why the cage bird sings
She sings nostalgic melodies of the jungle
Where she flew along , on the wings of the dawn without the restrictions of her cage 
A beautiful place designed for her, a wage 

I know why...Read More

The “Lazies”
Written: by Miracle Man

As bleeding heart liberals crusade for open borders,
Illegals bring their customs, and now reshape our country.
Some show moral probity, but many become hoarders,
And socialist's dare say, “it's all elementary”. 

The lazies knocking on my door seeking...Read More

My baby is shy
It pains me to know that my baby is shy
Afraid to speak up, she lets her tears dry
I’ve been that little girl, mild and meek
Offended, abused, but dare not speak

I grew up ashamed, to be anything less
Or anything more than...Read More

Premium Member Defenceless
Against cruel taunts repeatedly uttered
In scornful tones one might use to a dog,
A sensitive child may be defenceless.

At school there may be damage done by those
Who do not wish to show themselves as week,
They do not wish to appear defenceless

Ill-treatment...Read More

They had to run
hide in the brushes
of the Syrian country side
rains showered from above
no child should ever be hunted, abused
migrants on the run
they had no band
to champion a cause
rulers saw only weakness
unknowing the plans from the almighty
the comedy of tyrants...Read More

Over the head of each metatarsal
you can see 
where each has been pounded;
some are more abused than others.

Over the years 
new prominences and depressions
form and reform.
Surreal faces appear 
within the lines of the skin,
features that now seem 
to look inward

How Can I Forgive
How Can I Forgive?

How can I forgive?
The thought tormented me.
How can I erase
This haunting memory?

Seems I just relive,
The way that I was used,
And I can’t forget,
How I was abused.

My mind like a film,
Keeps playing o’er and o’er,
All the wrongs and...Read More
