I ride along,
This rough road long_
Everywhere silence is tense,
But i ride in pretense.

The sun showers his golden radiance 
Over my supple face in the clearance;
Night will soon be on his way,
And all creatures to their homes clad and gay.

Joy and smiles characterized the atmosphere to meet my arrival.
Given an identity and welcomed with a bitter and a soft taste.
Deaf to the excitement around me, crying was all i did 
never realizing those were the two sides of the...Read More

Rough road we knew had been hit by jack;
And by the time he started coming back
Remember when,

Brought more poems which were intact.

My love
As fun loving kids

When we first met

We'd grow old together

Was always our mindset

Through times good and bad

You always hung in there

Even times when I acted

Like I didn't even care

A rough road I've traveled

And experienced just the same

Yes I got what...Read More

when she kissed  a toad
No castle or carriage 
She chose a rough road

Happy Christmas

When I hear Christmas bells jingle,
I recall the days of frisky kiddies.
I wonder: what stifled the giggles, 
the white unsoiled dentition, 
the charming rosy dimples, 
sparkling eyes on snowy cakes, 
cold December cozying up the heart.

Some Things Beyond Control
In the course of man's expectation, 
There are things beyond his control; 
Even the rich, wise and strong
Sometimes can do nothing at all.

Footprints and castles can be made, 
For life is like the ocean sand; 
Neither can the castles stand...Read More

Road to Perdition
Rollin' thru the 'hood
in his signature gangsta lean
Ridin' dirty with a Mag clip,
blowin' out his favorite Tupac scheme

Raised on a rough road ---
Hell was always gonna be his retirement...Read More
