Home

Empty hall ways,empty chambers,

A radio with no music,

That’s how this room would feel without you,

Now every room plays sweet music of our love making,

Our laughter echoes in every corner,

The shower marks the stains of our hot evenings,our tables reek of home cook.meals.

Every portrait tells our story,of how we first met, every cup smells of coffee and each ornament has history of the past that made us connect,

Every poem,book tells about our love,we didn’t intend for our love to be this magical,

Interwoven with faith,prayer and commitment we just came to be.

A love written in the stars, a love felt in the warmth of these walls.

Felt in this house we made a home.

We found a home in each other.

Time to make amends

Im tired of being a bad friend,

The type that’s afraid to hurt your feelings by telling you the truth,

cause sometimes the truth hurts, it doesn’t sugarcoat.

I wanna be genuine and make you uncomfortable with our discussions and tell you move your a** cause God helps those who help themselves, instead of waiting on a hand out or bread,

You work hard cause you wanna be fed,

I wanna know I did all I could to make you a better version of yourself,

Because who you are is a reflection of me,birds of a feather flock together you see.

I cant be only ambitious for me, I gotta live to motivate you,if I dont inspire you to do as me or better, then I’ve failed as a friend.

I wanna stop being a bad friend,I wanna listen more,stop being stuck in my own head, listening to you vent,

Instead of having the answers I wanna be there for you instead,a safe place you can lay your head.

I wanna know I did all I can to be there for you,even if you wont there for me.

Cause its in my heart to be this way and maybe its someone else job to be an Angel to me.

So from today I wanna be what the definition of a good friend is.

And say it as it is cause you guys are still alive,I can still mend my mistakes.So forgive me for taking yall for granted and not being there when I should.

46 President

As one leaves another steps into the office,leaving trails of orange brick roads,

One that isn’t guaranteed to lead us home,

Black long jackets,dark gloves and quivering voice,

The people didn’t have much of a choice.

And as a day ends a new one begins,and the room goes quiet and everyone is asleep,

We’re anxious to know what ideas the new leader brings.

We want an overnight change

But it wont come so,

We must work from the ground and get to the top.

Forget colors,come together,

Pray more than ever,cover your family and kids,

For we have never seen such a year as this.

My loving bed

In my loving bed I am her,I am she,

She who is empowered,who inbetween her legs lies the power,

The power to manifest,bring the birds to my nest and offer me a sweet escape from my rent that’s due,

My bills get paid though,he offers to pay them well before the night is through.

In my loving bed I am loved,lied to and made love to,

My taboos are unleashed and we become free,

But as soon as he leaves his scent makes me nauseated,Im terrified of the dark as they call out my demons,

Im afraid to be alone and its sad that my sweetness,wetness is temporary for Im left dry,unwanted

My plane had landed with no destination..

My sheets are stained and no help to clean it..

Inspired by Spike Lee’s she’s got to have it.

Love yourself

If mirrors could speak,

They would leak the validation that we seek,that we are enough,

The walls that cave us in,would whisper we are beautiful,

If we could hear the thoughts of our admirers our confidence would be boosted,

We wouldn’t compare and feel unhappy,

We look for more,when we are exactly who we should be,

We neglect to realize,our bodies are uniquely crafted,

Our curves,each line well sculpted,

We fail to realize that who we are on the inside

Is whats really important,

Our heart condition is more important than our face foundation,

For no contour,

Can glamorize or replace a bad heart,or make us more

So let’s work on that,

Let’s work on us

and be our best selves,a person whom we are proud of.

Someone who we love.

Love in Hardship

I’m standing in the smog and smokes,

Grenades and helicopters,

Amidst the sirens going off and the world crashing,

I see you,

Nothing makes sense if I’m not next to you

The world is ending but all I need is you,

We’re like pieces of a puzzle,found pieces of the other in each other,

I know every broken pavement lead me to the beauty of who you are,

Every broken heart,bled so I could die and live again,

The pain made me distinguish what true love is and isn’t,

So every loss I consider it now gain,

and when this world ends our spirit will find each other and love again and again.

So much is happening

So much is happening..

New age movement,

Black lives matter movement,

Wear masks, be safe movement,

All these “Movement” but we’re not moving,seems like we’re all standing still,

Following trends rather than taking action,

Swallowing every pill,lowering our vibrations,

Saying this and that is wrong but avoiding the real conversations,

Idolizing ourselves as gods and not serving God,

The world is getting colder,we got kids up in cages,

Time is getting shorter,we got races in rage,

When will things get back normal? It wont ever be,

Cause all our eyes have been opened to see,

2020 vision we cant hide what we were comfortably hiding before.

We keep bowing our heads but our spirits kept asking for more,

Confusion and hate its just the beginning of times,

I know we upset,the world is not fine,

We’re finally awakening,we’re no longer blind.

It’s time to set our house in order now is the time,

To stop play church and give Jesus your life!

Bask in the Moment

Embrace this very moment,because tomorrow is not promised,

Enjoy here,right now

See,taste,feel

Engulf yourself in the minutes and the seconds as the day passes by

and the night says hi,

Bask in time,never be stagnant but flow with time,

Make the most of it

Be your best self in this moment

because all you have is now..

Mental Health Day..in their eyes I’m a mad man

Feeling like a caged bird,trapped behind walls and bands of society,

I only want to be free,

Why do they scrutinize my actions,and make fun of my clothes,

Why when I talk to myself they respond with hate,

Why cant they just wait,wait on me to catch up to their idea of normal..

But then again I’m way passed that,

My life is a riddle,a cat in a hat,

As a matter of fact,their ways are boring,

Sticking to rules got me hazy and snoring,

I rather be me and dance in the rain,

Live in my mind,where I shut out the pain,

I don’t care,let them call me crazy,

Let them seek out a cure,

Put me to sleep,but when the moon is up,

I’ll be back for sure,

So go ahead and clean out my dementia,

Go on pretend to care,and stare in lost hope,

at a man who appears to lost his mind,

but in this cage,I’ve found me,

I’ve found time

I’ve found mine,

Can you show me thine?
