The Art of the spoken word

Jerusalem 
Ornate 
Probate of the money lenders 
Who tender purity and security 
For a price
Gods children are willing to pay 
Because they are the sheep
On which the idol's seek

Exactly
What might I be
If I know not who I am?
If I am who I think I am,
I am not who I believe
Myself to be, therefore
Not knowing who I am,
What might I be?
Reread and perhaps
There is comprehension,
But even the conclusion
Is submerged...Read More

Spices and Things
I would give you my advices
If they weren't overpowered with spices
And things. Believe me, I hold
No control over these bold
Statements I make, nor the clever
Phrases and quips. I have never
Told a story of my own imagination—

Lost but Found
Have you ever been,
So lost and annoyed you stopped progressing,
So paranoid of where you’re heading,
So many demons that you face on your own,
In your zone but making ya feel frozen,
Paralyzed because it’s too much to deal with,

Let your sun god Ra

Show us the path you took

Eternity
it seems unfair to me sometimes
that life has to end.
i hold you in my sight
paused in motion
refusing to forget the patterns of your face
youth only fades
yet noone wants to fathom
what age portrays
watching you now, at age 22,
your ceaseless movements
both delicate...Read More

Living is my Religion
Atheism's beauty is newly welcoming.
Beliefs of God dissipating, fastly waning.
My morals mocked, trashed, disregarded around me.
I remain lost, unseen - For God is a lazy, scientific flee.

Religion has mystified me in its paradox of no evidence. 
So instead I cherish...Read More
