In Sacramento
And in Malibu, I almost lost my mind

Try to break their children at an early age

That's bad education, they say.

But they don't know
I was taught by a book
No school...Read More

Premium Member People Who Remind Us Of Others
People are all over. 
Some we see, others we barely
Notice. Some we instantly look
Away from, afraid to acknowledge.
I am talking about the beggars
Some try to pretend they
Are not there,
But they are.

Some we revere and admire, 
Even without really knowing them.

The poor,the rich,the black,the brown,among others,
A dream of everyone,
Living on planet earth,
Regardless of the background,
Even when it seems an impossibility.

To Live A Happy Life
To live a happy life :
A Midnight scribble,
A morning sigh,
You watch the words.
Curl up and die.

Inside your head,
Of poem lost 
And pages dead.
A mind possessed 
By unmade books,
Unwritten lines,
On Empty Hooks.
I know I am broken 
But I donot need...Read More

Where poverty has no space.

With the reckoning personality of dignity,
