Overworked

  To and fro carrying the weight of my world. Kicked around, rundown,  ignored in their dispair. It’s time for a new pair of shoes.

And God Repented

HE knew all along what we would become. Humanity and Mother Nature would be a combination unwholesome. He created us anyway even with Repentance on his tongue Because He’s a vessel of love, He did not destroy us. He knew that the pangs of our nature could be spiritually overcome. And the measures he would master…

Butterflies

Whenever I get butterflies in my stomach…shyt seems to gets real. Gripping onto the precipice of change. My heart is at a stand still. I have always tried to walk in faith. Many moments I just wanted to shy away.  Even though I stayed…the butterflies always came. More often than not, they’d gotten their way……

Perfection for Pennies

I know everyone has been there and seen it with their own two eyes. You’ve overlooked it or pushed and shoved it to the side. Maybe even resented its existence The fact that it’s within our gripping distance. How dare they try to sell any of us a can that’s slightly dented Or An apple…

I of the Storm

I’m trying to let you go, but you’ve been inside of me. You drove the roughest terrain and hugged the curves and the lanes so perfectly. We exchanged energy. You gave me life. Together we released the negative frequencies….and absorbed vibes. I felt like I was high… As quickly as it began, it ended. And…

After Ouma

I drove past her house once full of life… I had to stop and get out…my heart was wrought with strife. Now, it looks to be a place where only ghosts roam A lingering gloom cast over a now desolate home. Even a bright summer day couldn’t chase away the shadows The bulldozer disrespects a ground…

Intentions and Intensity

You earned my submission Through your intentions and intensity You gained my permission to touch, to feel, and to know me. You showed me your strength through simplicities. Your consistencies nurture my insecurities. I opened up even though it scares me to expose my vulnerability. Soft words and a firm grip allowed me to slip……

Swine and Bones

We are exotic in our own element A sundry of many shades Inherently gifted with many talents But, separated from our ways Our nature… From knowing who we are From heritage and tradition From our knowledge of the stars From castaways to slaves…the nameless martyrs who took a stand We have become as strays…bound to…

In the stars…

I see you… You see me… There’s a chemistry. I’m feeling you. You’re feeling me, But are we meant to be? Smelling your scent is Aromatic serenity. I become engulfed in the moment. Taken in by your flattery. Your interest is apparent and seen. I dream about how you could be. A vision of pleasantries,…

Playing the Part

The act has become the reality. I was being what I thought I had to be. Disregarding what came naturally. For the good or the bad. Ignoring the instincts that I had. To curse you out or to hold your hand, To follow my heart or join the band, Holding back the tears when I’m…
