Life has changed we live in fear 
Stay safe take care are all we here  
The lockdown has started but when will it end
Will the system break or will it bend 
Will this world ever be the same

Premium Member Finding Home
I feel stuck in a web of moving on
to leave home behind.

I want to be free of safe turtle shells,
to commune with naked nature
including human,
not excluding any egostrong stability,
as if intolerable
to civil integrity.

I need to grow free,
to feel communion

Love to survive
Love to survive

A virus
There’s a virus
Roaming among us
It is lurking around us
Our hands can guard us
Our loved ones can’t hug us
Love is all we have as our protector
A love for a brother, a mother and stranger 
A love that suppressed...Read More

Premium Member An Incident at the Emergency Department
Floating in vacuum,
morphine intravenous supplied,
pain deadened,
she lies dormant, oblivious to all,
thoughts suppressed,
unfeeling and benumbed.
Her husband holds her hand,
icy, like winter at its worst.
She moans, eyes flutter,
only to fall asleep again.
Anesthetized she finds rest.
Monitors bleep to rhythm,
steady as she goes...Read More

Thank You Mama: From the child who was almost aborted
I look back at a time
When I was too young to decide
She had the power to choose
If I could make it or not
And I had to oblige
The doctors told her
They had to terminate me
To save her life
She had to think...Read More

Frustration a feeling that's like friction,
Such a feeling of constricting conviction,
There is no way of avoiding its restriction,
This results in you feeling such damnation,

Frustration, the emotion completely domineers,
Suddenly angry tears begin to appear,
Motivation seems to disappear,
Sometimes it's not clear why...Read More

Take care for those who've forgotten the need to be cared for.

How serendipitous that it's inexplicable we understand one another the way we are

The veil left unsuspended,
Leaving the shiny brights suppressed,
Mockery filled the ones molested, 
Any attempt will be streisanded

More, I need more! MORE!

A hole left unblocked,
Beneath my soul I resisted,
It was futile, and it will last,
As long as the beats left unsilenced.

Beyond Qualms

To those who refer, my house is narrow,
Thick-walled and low ceilinged;
To those who confer, this world exists,
Yet does not exist the way it should;
To those who infer, the world is vast,
It is limitless if studied and explored.
I had concluded thus...Read More

Innocence confronts a world that’s corrupt
addicted to sin
and thrill of the win,
where suppressed emotions spew and erupt.
Although naught is said
innocence gets shed.
And as children prepare for reality
trading fantasy dreams for hyperbole,
time chases its shadow.

But adolescence’s adrenaline rush
sets you free at...Read More

Lift Every Voice
Lift ev'ry voice and cry
While all our children die
Raise up the deaf'ning sigh of misery
Let all the people hear
With ever-sharpened ear
How we have lost our dignity and pride
Long ago, we had community others desired
Long ago, we had prosperity to be...Read More

Caged Dragon
Rattling the cage, the raring beast twists and turns
It claws the net and filters through it a roar that burns
Its wings are constrained as the winds and sky yearns 

I am off stage, opportunities missed and faint
I know my worth,...Read More

Don't let your mind lie to you
You can do anything if you try
Your mind will say you can't
But don't ever believe those lies

Secretly hidden in all of us
Is a power that can't be denied
Some will keep it suppressed
They might glance...Read More

In his essay "Let's Be Reasonable" 
Rev. Todd Eklof [The Gadfly Papers]
reduces reasonable to logical;

This is a common left-brain dominant error,
confusion between deductive premises
and coldly reductive conclusions
calculated assuming cause v effect linear formulas
more than feedback loops
of complex neurological relationships,

In sandy Egypt lived three men
In ancient days when pharaohs reigned
The kingdom of the pyramids,
Osiris and that Isis’ den,
Whom everyone worships and heeds,
Or at least doing so they feigned,
And those gods too blessed them and deigned.
But these three men round...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul XLV

In the crook of my neck
I feel your caresses
strokes of a journey
bathed in brilliance

comendeering the angels
but much prettier

suppressed my senses come to life
dancing to the music of love
lifting out of the breeze
and her tease
her taste

Some see power as personal,
feel light as intimate belonging,
interpersonal hope and faith and love.

For these,
life's experience and memory
are theologically driven from above,
hoped for,
and feared when lost,
repeatedly abused.

Others hear power as planetary evolution,
sometimes climaxing in intense revolutions
of painful loss
and gainful passion
within...Read More

Where do we think all this economic and politically empowering
