Premium Member BLACK AND BLUE- -
 I am a Son of an African American
I run
my turmoils taints the history books
yet people give me evil looks
I run
I choose
Yet I am 
Black and blue, this is my physical hurt

Been given a name by my parents James

We’re drowning our diners in sugar, it seems -
our food is obesity packaged as dreams!
We really don’t mind about that, sir,
it’s only some kids getting fat, sir.

We pledged to help forests! Prevent their demise!
Yet the ash of the Amazon taints...Read More

Succor
Each galling ache with steadied prayer dispel.
Let that bland hour bleak with chilling thought
Glow with indelible joys of a yet hoping heart,
And knit such merry smiles as cute angels got. 

Hold onto that time-tested unswerving dream 
That martyrs' sorrows will...Read More

Premium Member SOUL SEEKERS
Captivated by the flesh
never reaching the buried spirit
captured deep within.
Looking for trust; we are sidetracked by lust.
First, look into the whites of their eyes,
watch their smile, measure their laughter.
For then you shall find what you truly seek.
Smell, the freshness of...Read More

Premium Member Thus
thus,
like snow,
cold ashes fall
charred history’s
hubristic gales
truth’s torment
tucked into howling
acquiescent innocence.



Empty men
line the banks
fishless rivers
sit idle
barbless hooks
impugn the air
ivy strangled
rowboats sigh



With age color fades
into the weariness
wonder wanders
among the weeds
joy darts through
day lit darkness
hides hope’s
vacant sunshine
time taints
tomorrow’s tomorrow



the calendar’s lie
tri-colored ink charade

Free Will Eats The Fruit Of Knowledge
Most would have you to truly believe,

However I do have disdain, so I must parody his hymn.

Variations on a Theme of Red 

Color of bold that daubs the sunset bright
Old fair weather friend of shepherd’s delight
That taints the emblazoned rays of gold 
Displayed a glorious red for all to behold

Rare crimson moon adorns a shady backdrop

my world selective mutism
Alone in a world trapped in my head
Thinking of the past laying in bed.
Random moments will come over me
When all I’ll do is think and breathe.
No words will form from my lips
A brief verbal eclipse
Numerous reasons ranging
Personality unchanging, while emotions...Read More

Premium Member Dusk of darkness in the darkness

its threadbare blanket taints the sunset
masking the eyes of evenings predators
slowing the pace of the days heartbeat
holding in its grasp a troubled darkness

soft-petaled flowers warily close their eyes
seeking the solace of denial
tree top chatter ceases – acquiesces

People In Bondage

Refugees are humans, people with sunlit dreams
wishing revenge and pain soon would be gone;
hearts held in vigils, their grief unabated
as rudely cups the night in some foreign place,
to will their wings, freedom from bondage cries.
Journeying far when nights tear homes...Read More

PRECIOUS DEATH TOWARD ETERNITY
“Precious in God’s sight is the death of His saints.”
The Bible says it with truth-might that never faints
Such assertion guards my soul from harm of doubt-taints…
Why should I fear death, pictured in beautiful paints?

In the midst of life, readiness for...Read More

Chosen
It’s an early Sunday morning
The devils on his knees
Shallow self-importance
Screaming to be seen

The facade of something special
Filled with rage and self-disdain
Putting on a holy show
Attempt to cover - all his pain

His words speak so loudly
Feels so good for the sheepish...Read More

Premium Member TARNISHED REFLECTIONS

Hairline cracks of doubt
slow mark the corners
of mind’s vision,
alter the illusion
of yesterdays
filtering into today’s.
Soft gray film taints
the sunshine halos,
hardens the smiles,
narrows the eyes
as we squint
into an abyss
of angst.
The shadows overlap,
blend into complex
inequities of truth
tinged by time,
of lies mocking
the truth,
piercing the...Read More

Mixed Bag
Cut out the bad part
Just like cancer
The perfect solution
The ultimate answer

Oh, if only I could isolate
The purest property
Maybe I’d get a handle on
My inhumanity

Weed out the bad stuff
Chaff from wheat
Make the good half
The thing complete

Oh, if only we could separate

Insanity
Insanity

That insane
In the dark corner
of the narrow lane
helpless and hesitant
because she’s dumb

That insane 
laughing on her voice
scratching her body,
and  innocent face
blackened of
taints of madness.
A little lady in 
tattered clothes
alone in crowd
searching someone
of her own.

People laugh at her
and she laughs...Read More

The Poet
The poet must write at his heart's behest

from the hidden keep of his soul he gives

My skin has become like a ripe fruit

The spirit within has crossed over 
a kind of warm frosted paradigm
as the breath therein,
taints the breath without love.
For what is breath without love?

White
White

White is discrimination
As an idea, is retardation
I have tried to be patient
But we live in a world, of fools

White is merely one color
An adjective, for anoth’or
No ONE, is inferior
Until that someONE is acting, the fool

Without all the facts to know...Read More

I'm but a frail bird tasked to bring hope and spread peace.
