Great Wall of China and then some

Block by block it starts to rise, Great Wall of China begins,
A barrier to stem the horde, marauding Mongolians,
Must be bigger and better, than ever attempted before,
Also should be breathtaking, far into the clouds will soar.

Better Than Ever
10/27/19
"Better Than Ever"


Took a lot of tries
Opened up my eyes
And became wise

Thought
A lot
Took a shot
And got after what I sought
Fought against torment and rot
So oft
People mock
It never ceases to stop
Finally connected the dots
I took it to a higher notch
Time is...Read More

Premium Member Did I Lose You
Did I lose you since we last spoke?
Did you feel lost when I said I couldn't cope.
Was their something in my stare, that drove you oh so near.
To be gone again when I stopped my trend.

Can I get you back...Read More

crimson quill, eventide still;
soft words written-
a chance we come together
and dance with ease forever;
love committed grace,
as your outline I trace-
quietude of silent stars ignite by sight,
custom stares,
as we stroll beneath willows to reminisce
on autumn vows we shall not dismiss

Butterfly Free to Fly.

With all the love

From the depths of my heart

Body spirit and soul

I send to thee

My warmest best wishes

My thoughts empathy

And sympathy

The flower that bloomed so beautifully

May now rest for a while

But will soon bloom again

Peace
Peace!


My head is a vase, thirsting for water.
Pour knowledge into my mind for thoughts are forever sought after,
And if all I have to offer,
Is not good enough to impress Heaven’s daughter,
Then raise my soul with every word 
And allow me...Read More

Premium Member Ode to Little Raccoon in the Ditch
I found you yesterday
Little raccoon in a ditch
I wondered what I could do for you.
You were stiff, and covered with snow.
If I gently brushed you off, would you return to the land of the living?

My snow brush might be too...Read More

MY FRIEND, MY LOVE

When first we met, she was my friend
Soon, cupid's arrow flew
She became my love in the end
Because the aim of his arrow was true

She is still my friend and will always be
For the rest of my natural...Read More

king of Emery
In his universe
He is 
The King of Emery.
Holder of all
Knowledge.
Knower of all
Doings.
He struts about,
Boasts about
Not bowing to anyone.
Funny how that changes,
When family’s round.
He big talks his
Prowess.
And exaggerates
His deeds.
He’s more worried
Bout his mates,
Than his next feed.
How he survived
His childhood.
God only knows.

I love AFRICANAMERICAN Christian Culture: Forgiving slaveholders and Tyrants
Some serious religious sophomores claim Christ ('Witness' Bluff)
Almost like Columbus: to hit the Other, take their STUFF

Nothing Doing here; I am a Minister of Jesus' Gospel
For the same Reason they fled HERE to Native Indian lands

Catholics to Lord Baltimore's Maryland,...Read More

My daddy
I know one hero in this world
No one can compare with him.
You are everything, have you heard?
I’ll tell you in my poetry within.

She was naughty little bit.
But you helped her to win,
Childish whims and stand...Read More

Average Lazy Bum
He’s just your average lazy bum — 
a sweet, lovable loser
Who loves to stick his index finger
high in the air,
and tell you he’s number one
When in fact, technically,
his favorite sports team is
It’s success by association, 
as he moons the neighborhood...Read More

BUT SACRIFICE
Actions speak louder than voice, they say
Words think louder than thoughts, I say
Always listening to me feels better than ever, you say
But sacrifice…

It’s the reason why we are here
It’s the soul of existence
It’s the advance nature of our true selves

ALONE WITH A CHAIR
“ALONE WITH A CHAIR”


I could never express how it 
feels, walking outside at 3 
in the morning, wrapped 
inside the night air. I’m in 
my shorts, without a shirt. 
without the sun, you can see 
all of what you ignore...Read More

Private beach
 
To make your feet feel better,
take your socks off.

Going barefoot.
To make your body be better,
take it all off.

Nothings greater.
Be one and one alike.
Feel better than ever.
Smiling inside and out shhh
Let the waves soak in,
and make you feel alright now.

Thought you'd protect me.

Till I stand strong on my feet.
Thought I was born out of you.
You bore me in your womb.
Or, did you regret all through?
For I reminded you of someone...Read More
