Inflictions of whiteness
A white Santa showed a child the skin tone of the top brass
A white doll to an innocent black girl contrasts ugliness

A white wedding was beauty redefined as a cloak on a lass
A white Jesus, before we repented, repainted righteousness

In pieces
In pieces

The debris of my shattered soul,
Is all that remains of the old me I used to know.
I, the ghost, who haunts my life of cold,
Just sits here shivering…lost without a hope.

Broken by love a thousand times.
Crippled permanently by all...Read More

Head down
Head down

I'm still walking.  I'm still talking.
I'm still trying to find a way for this life to mean something.
I got no direction…just using self-reflection.
Trying to find a way to see me under closer inspection.

I wanna be in love, but...Read More

A matter of life and death
A matter of life and death

Life; the infinite circle of dreams written in the stars.
Death; is on the back of a turtle waiting for the far.
The time stretching sand, dripping destiny into jars.
Life is a destination; what will be your...Read More

Reality driven
Reality driven.

Hand on heart I love you.
From the start my love has been true.
So beautiful, as soon as we met.
You caught me looking and I was trapped in your net.

Stuck to you through thick and thin.
You are on my mind...Read More

Shot a rebel through the heart.
Cancer kills but life is art.
You tried to put a stop to all that we are,
But we are too hot to handle; you can’t grab hold of a star.

Fire your guns; I’m invincible.
Speak your words;...Read More

A complex God
A complex God

I can’t always be your salvation.
One day I will rip you apart.
I won’t always be a helping hand,
Because one day I will reach inside and tear out your heart.

If you allow me to love you, utterly and truly,
Then...Read More

Patent No 1
Patent No.1

Give me directions to find my car.
Arrows on the key fob, point near or far.
North by North West; is this the right way?  Yes.
There is my car, under the star.
This invention is the best.
Trackar, twenty yards away, easy...Read More

Here we stand, alone and in pain.
We are all you never wanted to be.
Somewhat damaged in this broken brain.
Let’s all welcome the lonely.

Come join us in this loneliness;
Make sure you walk alone.
With all friends gone,
Without a sun,
Pretend you have never...Read More

I will not be quitting you
I will not be quitting you

I’m not ready to be quitting you;
I still need your love.
You may be ready, but I will never be,
Ready to give up.

Back in the first millennium,
Putting the world to rights,
There lived a king called Arthur
With a band of gallant knights.

They did things democratically,
Seated round a table.
Although the lines are slightly blurred
Between true fact and fable.

The knights were known for...Read More

His weapon is not a sword
but pen and ink and the spoken word.
He needs no guns or knives.
His weapon of choice is hidden behind a thin disguise.

as he shuts down democracy in a...Read More

Fight for your future.
Nothing is sure.
Stand up and tell them
you want water that’s pure.

Fight for your future.
You need to be seen.
Stand up and tell them 
you want air that’s clean.

Fight for your future.
Sometimes you have to be rude.
Stand up and...Read More

Unfinished Business
Unfinished Business

Feel like giving up.
Think I have had enough.
Impossible to finish a book.
Keep on getting stuck.

All begins with good intentions.
It all ends with procrastination.
Thought it time for me to mention,
I never reach the end…

Keep it real or never said.

And I want it to be a connection that I know will truly last.

I will stick to you like note paper for years and years.

I'm feeling disillusioned, all because of you.
I'm lacking all my desire for love, because of your truth.

You sit there on your throne of thorns, 
Not caring about the lives that you have torn.
The lives that you simply ignore.
Your world is...Read More

I’ve been catching sunbeams in a little glass jar.
I’ve got nothing to lose now, apart from my self-control.
I want to set free the world and release my soul afar.
I’ve lost control of growing old.

Head still thinking sideways, but now I...Read More

A feather lost, gliding and drifting, it soars, 
in the mighty wind, it twirls and swirls, as if dancing;
once, the People owned all the wilderness,
they called it home, now they watch it be destroyed. 

There, high upon a sheer...Read More
