Balance of Power
Me and my sister 
wanted a request granted to us
the other day
So we sought out our parents to see
what they had to say
Daddy said go ask your Mama
So we went and asked her:
Mama gave us a hard no
That settled the...Read More

African Children

they sleep at night with belly's empty
 rolling in the dirt to comfort their sore's
 hands, eyes, feet

 Elephant screams
 Disappearing act through the night

 etched through the premise of my mind
 a cape of restoration
 hearts explode in illumination
 tempers on fire for desire

 explore the trees

My Greatest Listening Moment
I did not know it at the time
But I held the Balance of Power over Life and Death.
On a cold and unforgiving winter night
A good ten or so years ago.

Refuse to listen to even the most agitated pleas' from my...Read More

A small word but with great meaning
Essential for the survival of human being

Everybody is in search of peace
Which is not within easy reach

Man has too many ambitions
Causing his own destructions

War here, war there
War is widespread every where

We are victims of...Read More

Damn it!
Crouching low on the ridge with Joseph and Rubin we see
that twenty horses or more are grazing with a group of Indians in the valley,
through the telescope two things are clear
the Indians are young Blackfeet braves
and they appear to...Read More

Dying World
A world that was meant to die
Crimson flows as the Nordic gods cry
Only one species is destined to survive
From the will of the dead we thrive
An internal problem no one can fix
Liberty and tyranny  cannot mix(co-exist)

Looking over the world...Read More

Women that sparks extreme desire
Some whose names he couldn't pronounce
Even those with no clue as to why God make a girl...

Never did he image

Secondary School Poetry Jumble
She may walk among 
untrodden ways.
But beware,
your trips and slips,
face first slides into reality
Not always your own doing
Is ever present 
Always lurking.

Tight rope walking over well 
worn paths.
Danger lurks in the familiar. 
He who made the lamb made 
The falcon trusts the...Read More

anthology of life
we gently pray upon our desire
or maybe our desire preys upon us
recoil in disgust at the muck and mire
only to answer, "what's all the fuss?"

life's joys and private hells undreamt of
scale's fulcrum tipping the balance of power

In Dedication
Here I sit and visit with the demons of my past,
They claw and bite at my mind until it cannot last,
They tear me apart mind and soul,
Draining my life away by the bowl,

I hear my screams echo in the dark,
The...Read More

The Truth About Thanksgiving
The Truth About Thanksgiving

By Elton Camp

The Thanksgiving story taught in the school 
Those ignorant of history is intended to fool
A splinter group of Puritans the Pilgrims were
To call them “fanatics” is truth, not some slur

They came intending to take Indian...Read More

The Epic Rebirth
Fireflies beacons, nomad, I quest
Thrusting dagger deep into night
Afterglow, apparitions that fest
Dancing in the wake, and they fade away, when pulling out the knife

Forlorn my laden soul, it is a walking corpse
Stride I, battle broken and weary worn… betwixt these...Read More

Liberty isn't easily exported
crafted, unwrap
