POEM TO NEFERTARI
africa, history, inspirational, light,
Behold Queen of Priestesses
I bow my head in the sanctuary

Thorns and glyphs pierce my skin
I thank you for God’s grapes
Ode To My Father

The sperm of my father brought me to this world
He brought me up well with his compelling word;
“All that glitters is not gold” he advised,
When I grew up, my behaviour was spared
He was a gentleman,...Read More

humanity, inspiration, international, joy,
Drunk with the ecstasy of Divine Love

An Ode to Life, Part III
And O Life safe art thou, nor yet secure,
Those averse to danger can scarce shun it,
It better be braved, let streets be unlit,
No success walks in on its own for sure....Read More
An Ode to Life, Part II
Life shows its frills if ye dwell on fair side,
Perceive it with a poet’s perspective—
Life’s negatives seen with eyes positive,
Let not life’s dangling duals take a free ride.
If sin there be, it...Read More

To die an old man, tasks left on slow burn,
And as fake coins do, get reborn ‘pon earth;
Work harder still, more mileage points to earn,
Which, heaven calls goodly deeds well their worth,...Read More
cancer, goodbye, grief, inspiration,
No string wrist
Your iconic mustache harboring
A giddy smile
That stretched from Oregon to Maine
Like your Harley once had
I should’ve stirred more conversations
My youth/shyness stifling
The words I wished to speak
Tis why I write this
As words flow...Read More

Walls heightened from reach,
I judge you not for your choice.
Your strength is commendable,
fear rests upon your enemies.
Like thunder you strike,
never the same place, twice....Read More

Through laughter and enthusiasm?
Without faith is there any grace?
Does the spirt trust hope?
Do feelings abide in...Read More
