“What Da”

20180424_222238
I do not want
To come out my character
For no one
Especially you
But I will
My irritation
My annoyance
Of the sight of you
I deal with it
Well enough
That is my cross
To bare
But heed my urgency now
I am asking you to keep
This in mind
This is the end
Of the road for you
I can not take
Much more of you
I am warning you
I am cautioning you
This is a public service announcement
For you
And
Anyone like you
To leave me alone
Because
I could careless
Either way of your
Success
Or
Failure
It does not matter to me
My thing is
I did nothing
I do nothing
To nobody
Nobody can say
I have done anything
To them
I mind my own damn business
I stay in my lane
I know nothing
About nothing
I do not gossip
I do not question
I do not interact
In conversations
That do not include me
So
Why is it
$Hit still falls on me
I am not understanding
This concept
This crap of
Why this is happening
To me
This worthless nonsense
This $hit storm
That is taunting
That is following
That is chasing me
I do not give
Two $hits about
What you do
How you do it
When you do it
Where you do it
When it does not concern me
Just
Stop being mad
I refuse to be in the audience
Clapping in the crowd
For you
Get over it
Be glad
Another person is not being
Fake with you
Kissing your @ss
Laughing behind your back
That is not me
Do you
I do me
Live your life
You do not need me
To be your cheerleader
In this world
That is what your family
And
Friends
Are for
I am neither to you

“There Is No Manual”

20180322_231017
Everyone
In this world
Has an inheritance
Of unlimited
Wealth
Beyond what
Money could buy
It is in the
Opportunities
We have
The passion
That fuels us
To chase dreams
And
Push
Our mind
To getting
Where we want
To be
In this life
And
To complete
This quest
For what
Is destined
To be
Your life
Know
It is after
You have
Opened
Your eyes
Taken
Your first breath
That you
Need to
Look towards
The stars
Claim what
Is yours
Realize that
They are yours
To take
No one can
Tell you
How far
How wide
You should
Travel
No one
Can tell you
How many
Dreams
You can have
Because
You can have
As many as
You want
As long as
You are
Willing to reach
For them
They are yours
To take
Make your own
Path
Write your
Own story
Use your heart
As a compass
Your spirit
As your strength
Fill your mind
With as much positivity
So when
You are
Faced with people
That want
To stand
In your way
Screaming at you
That you
Can not do it
Know it is
Their failure
Talking
Not yours
Push through
They do not
Have a manual
There is
No right
Or
Wrong
Directions
In your journey
To how you
Get there
Just get
There
Nonetheless

“Wondering Aimlessly”

20180319_231006
Besides
The obvious
To be
A better person
Than yesterday
And
To listen to
Your heart
Love yourself
Love thy neighbor
Help others
Who need help
What is the purpose
Of this life
Where are the directions
What is the payout
How do we know
We are doing
It right
Which way
Are we suppose
To go
Because
Everything
Is up
In the air
It has to be
Something more
To life
Than this
Craziness
We are moving
Around
Like roaches
Waiting for
The lights
To come on
To scatter
Rising to go
To work
Beat the traffic
Only to
Chase
The dollar bill
Because
That is what
Runs us
Food
Shelter
Fun
Responsibility
And
Oh yeah
Make sure
To pay our masters
What quality of life
Is this
What is beneath
This chaos
I see
People
Like me
Standing
At a crossroad
Confused
And
Debating
What is next
Wondering
If it is better
To take
The road
That is
Already paved
Or
Set off into
Uncharted territory
Finding something
Yet
To be
Discovered
Like
Christopher Columbus
We are
Small specks
Of grains
In this universe
Moving around
Like dust
Funneling
Through the years
We are
Coming and going
Born
Moving fast
Only to
Get older
And
Wither away
Then
Be replaced
By another
Creation
Over and over
Repeating
A vicious cycle
To wonder aimlessly
Hoping
To get it
Right
And
Find out
What is
The end game
To this madness

“Lost World”

20180317_230310
The time
I wish
We all
Could
Go back to
Was when
Children
Could be
Children
They stayed
Out of
Grown folks
Conversations
They played
Outside
Walked to
The corner store
For essentials
For the family
And
Rode their
Bikes
All over
The neighborhood
Without the
Fear of being
Kidnapped
Or
Murdered
A village
Is what
Looked out
For them
Big Mama
Was
Every old lady
That sat
On the window sill
Watching as
The children
Played
Stepping in
When things
Got hairy
First
Saying
Imma tell yo mama
Second
Spanking
Them
Then
Directing them
To go home
Where their mother
Was waiting
To spank
Them again
For embarrassing
Her
With their conduct
These are
The good old days
Missing from
Our communities
The forgotten
Powerful system
That was setup
Allowing neighbors
To be extended
Family
That cared for
One another
Giving parents
Relief
And
Support
To know
Their children
Were safe
On the streets
While they
Were playing
Tell me
Where did
This piece of
Mind
Go to
How did
This get shattered
Breaking up
A great system
Parents
And
Community
Working together

“Until Your Last Breath”

20180307_2233001
How am I
Suppose to help
If you are not
Willing to do
Anything
And
Everything
To save
Yourself
You rather die
Than tell
The truth
Okay
I say
Truth
Can be
Discussed later
Just
Give me
Simple information
So I can help
You escape
Or
Is it possible
You have fallen for
Your captors
Because
I am confused
I do not
Understand
Your silence
Why are you not
Yelling at
The top
Your lungs
Or
Whispering
In everyone’s ears
That come
Too readily
To your bed
To take you
By force
If you do
Nothing
Know
Nothing will
Come
For you
But misery
Helplessness
And
Imprisonment
You need
Play your cards
That you have
Been dealt
Play the
Empathy
Sympathy
Card
Play on their
Consciousness
Of guilt
Go the distance
Play on
Your enemy’s
Hate
Get him/her
Angry enough
To come after you
Yes it is
An unconventional
Rescue
But a rescue
At best
I just say
Play the whole
Damn deck
Until your
Last breath
It only takes
One person
To start
A blazing
Inferno
To get
Emergency Responders
To be dispatched
Use me
Use them
Use your enemy
To save you
Bringing this chaos
To an end
So you can get
Out of
This mess
Fight until
Your last breath

“Based On Individuality”

20180302_202032
If you put
A label
On me
Without
Trying
To get to
Know me
It will be
Your lost
Not mine
Because
I am
More than
What you see
I am a
Acquired taste
Only a sensitive
Palate
Will understand me
My personality
My morals
My values
My attitude
I have
My reasons
Why
I have them
Come and sit down
Have a conversation
With me
And
Witness
First hand
So you
Can comprehend
The truth
I bring
I am not
An object
With a price tag
I am
A colorful person
Inside
My skin
And
I only wish
You look
Beyond it
See it
As a casing
That is just
Holding me
Together
THE END
Stopping your
Misjudgment of me
And/or
Hindering
Our Process
To progress
Into being
Something
More than
Strangers
Working
To be
Good friends

“Following Directions”

20180228_223322
First
I want
To take
This moment
To applaud those
That have been
Getting it right
Following the
Compass
Installed in
Their chest
Loving
Living
Caring
About life
My only concern
Is those
Who have
Been rousing
Occasionally
Or
Constantly
A lot of
Chaos
Following bad
Instructions
Leading them
To think
Of ways
To commit
Mass destruction
Upon our race
Who follow
People
With no faith
Fueling
A rise
In anger
That express
Pure hate
Stinking up
The universe
Lining us up
To a terrible fate
A hell
On Earth
We can not
Escape
Unless we come
Together
And change
This fate
Unify humanity
To seeing humans
Not colors
Not enemies
Of the state
Stop killing
What you
Do not understand
Learn from past
Mistakes
Remember
Thou shalt
Not kill
Is universal
Rule to
All with
Common sense

“Familiar Surroundings”

20180111_210114
I want
To know
More about it
It does not
Frighten me
Threaten me
It intrigues me
A silhouette
That lingers
In my dreams
Standing
In the dark
In a corner
Teasing me
In a playful manner
Acting shy
But not afraid
Of me
It knows me
I am familiar
With its presence
So I do not know
Why it refuses
To come into
The light
I squint
To get
A better view
I walk closer
To touch it
I try to
Talk to it
But it moves
Further away
Out of my reach
Keeping silent
Drawing me into
The mystery
Of its existence
My curiousity
Continues to build
Its evasiveness has
Created ardent flames
Inside of me
I am yearning
For them
To be calmed
By this faceless
Companion
That has been
Enticing me
Into wanting
To hear
How the story of
Us began
How it knows me
Why does it hide
In the shadow
Of my dreams
And what does
It want from me
Besides my reminiscence
Of a familiar presence
That visits me
In my dreams
All through
The night

“Second Chance To Fail”

20180104_201650
You convinced me
To allow you to
Rewrite our story
And give you
Another chance
To play
The leading man
Seeking
His second chance
To change
What made us
Into a disater movie
You assured me
Not to worry
Because
You had
My back
My front
All sides
Of me
To catch me
So I would not
Fall to hard
On the pavement
You was so convincing
I believed
You wanted
To create
This love story
With me
Live in bliss
For the rest
Of our lives
Together as a family
But
This time
It was a record moment
When your
Signals
Started to go haywire
Causing me worry
All over again
Questioning if you
Were lying
Your words
And actions
Conflicted
And
You refuse
To give me clarity
You did not
Bother to talk
To me
You stopped
All communication
With no explanation
I do not
Know the reason
Why we cleaned
The slate
When it was
Within days
You crushed
Any and all dreams
We mentioned
We wanted
Creating
The second series
To another disater story

“My Brain A Deadly Weapon”

20171231_215058
The two
Deadliest people
The Assassin
That kills
For no reason
Other than money
The Bodyguard
That protects
Killing only
When provoked
When someone
Tries to
Assassinate
Their boss
While guarding them
Are inside
Of each person
Making them
The perfect weapon
To defend
Maim
Or
Kill
Anything
In its path
That cause harm
To its master
All feelings are
Locked away
In order
To think
With precision
So the hard
Decisions
Can be made
Without hesitation
After the brain
Has sensed danger
The only mission
Is to
Restore balance
At any cost
To guarantee
The heart
A fighting chance
To beat again
And
Love
Unconditionally
Without limits
I just say
As a warning
Do not
Wake up
The machine
Called the brain
I do not
Know what
It is capable of
But I know
Its agenda
Is to preserve
Love
So evil
Will not
Take over
And cause
Permanent blindness
Preventing
You to see
The good
In anybody

“Monsters Don’t Look Like Monsters”

20171228_224114

They did
Something
Daring
That we
Did not
Or
Could not
Imagine
They came
Out of hiding
Venturing
From under beds
Walking out
Of closets
Leaving
Dark alleyways
To come
Into the sunlight
To induce
Nightmares
During the daytime
They were
Tired of
Feeding off
Of just
Innocence
When they had
A full buffet
In front
Of them
To take
Away everything
Good in life
From people of
All ages
Men
Women
And
Children
No one can
Protect us
From monsters
That do not
Look like
Monsters
They have
Changed the game
Evolved
While we were
Complacent
Believing they
Would stay
In their place
We lowered our
Defenses
Now we are
Paying a price
By being haunting
Night
And
Day
Without
A safe
Haven
To go to
To hide
From all the monsters

“He Will Bleed You” Version 2

20171227_212604
He was
The only one
That brought truth
In existence
He walked
This land
Was risen
From the dead
And is living
In the heavens
Above us
He left
This land
Not to one man
But to all
Of us
To provide
Food
In abundance
To feed us
But sadly
We are sitting
Idly by
Being selfish
Not protecting it
From mortal kings
Going to
War without
Purpose
I ask
Why are you
So willing to
Bow down
And fight
Blindly
Giving loyalty
Without question
Dying for a man
To keep
His kingdom
His riches
And increase
His power
To reign
Over us
Your obiendance
To a man
That is not God
Does not deserve
A pledge
Of allegiance
When he is
So willing
To kill
The innocent
The ones
Asking the hard
Questions
Of Why
Are we doing this
And when can
We have
Our peace
And freedom
These false kings
Have you noticed
Are piling up
Rottening
In a dark crypt
And
The throne
Keeps opening up
For more
To come behind them
Searching
To gain its power
So they can
Continue bringing
Their tyranny
To keep us
Binded
To a lie
Told for centuries
By many kings
Before them
So many times
It became a
Collective delusion
As they tried
And
Did not succeed
To defame
The true king’s
Legacy

“Trapped In My Feelings”

20171225_222851
You continue
To put
Everyone
Above me
I do not remember
The last time
You said me
You loved me
Gone on a date
Taking me
To dinner
Dancing the night away
Then
Making love
Until we were
So spent
That we were
Left
In a love coma
It is
Been so long
That you
Have been looking
Right through me
I can not
Take this
Anymore
Masquerading
As if
We are happy
I am so tired
Of hearing
You tell me
I am
In my feelings
I am
In them
I stay
In them
Because of you
And
I have been
Wondering
Why
Am I here
In this house
In this life
With you
You do not
Appreciate me
I cook
I clean
I do everything
To keep
This family
Together
And everyday
You refuse to
Lift a finger
I am exhausted
Catering to
Your every whim
I am not
The hired help
You are not
Paying me
I am your lover
I am so angry
With you
I am
Tempted to
Choke you
Drain the life
Out of you
Then
Resuscitate you
So
I can ask you
How hell feels
And if
Your friends
Were there
Waiting for you
Since
The sun
And
The moon
Sets with them
Leaving me
In this darkness
Being
In love with
A man that
Does not
Love me

Do not tell
Me lies
Or
Lie about me
Saying I did
Anything
That I
Did not do
Keep me
Out of the
Black and white
Print
When I read
The morning
Paper
I only want
The facts
I am not
That person
Willing to
Bend over
And
Take it
Ingesting what
You are
Feeding me
Without
Putting up
A fight
Nor am I that
Type of person
To start
Crying
And
Saying
My feelings
Were hurt
I will defend
Myself
At any
And all cost
So do not
Include me
In any mess
Your gossiping
And
Half truths
I do not want
To hear it
Or be part
Of it
Just leave me
Out of
That nastiness
It is not
My business
So do not
Make it mine
Or you will
Be preparing
For a fight

“You Catch Me Then Keep Me Safe”

20171213_224122
I want
My soulmate
That’s only
For me
That will
Love
Cherish
And
Keep
My heart safe
Being that
Man
That will be
The man
That wants
To stay
Through better
And/or worst
I do believe
The way
You pursued me
Is the same
Way you
Should keep me
And if you
Are pretending
I will know
Soon enough
I do not need
My time wasted
By pretenders
Wanting
To be someone
Otherthan theirself
Trying to get
Into my pants
Then break my heart
By walking out
I just want one
Man
To be the man
Who is ready
To be loved
By me
And
Willing to love
Me back
That’s a man
I will do
Anything for
Rushing home
To be in his arms
Giving my
All to
As a queen
Should do
For her king
Every chance
I get
Just
Do not pretend
To be a gentleman
When you are not
Be that man
Before you
Knock on my door
And
Let that one
Show up
Throughout
Do not become
Comfortable
Complacent
And
Taking me
For granted
I refuse
To accept
Treat me
With respect
Tell me
You love me
And
Show me
Everyday
And
Definitely
Do not
Change up
From having me
Be your queen
To
Treating like
Something
You found
On the bottom
Of your shoe
That will be
My cue
To exit
Left
Out the door
Never to
Come back

“Whirring Out Of Control”

20171204_221254
This is
Where
We live
Where
We will die
In a world
Full of greed
It is
A money making
Conglomerate
Making money
At any cost
Set rules
Made by
The corrupt
Filling their
Pockets
Full of cash
Willing to
Risk
Everyone’s lives
By putting things
In food
That
No one
Can pronounce
And
Shelving
Pharmacies with
Legalized drugs
With side effects
Stating on
The warning label
It can kill
Harm
Or
Make you insane
And your body
Will never be
The same
Hooked on addictive
Properties in it
Just trust
It anyway
To save you
While you
Playing
A silent game
Of Russian roulette
How do you get
Balanced
When you’re
Unbalanced
Stumbling around
Falling
With nothing
To help
You stand
Up on your feet
When it is
Constantly moving
Shifting
And sliding
All over place
Today
What is bad
For you
Is now
Good for you
There is nothing
Safe
What kept people
For centuries
Alive
Is no good for us
We are dying
Much sooner
And it’s said
Our life is
For the better
I’m not sure
Is it

“Powerless Becoming Powerful”

20171201_222950
I guess
Grabbing them
By the pussy
Is the real slogan
To people
That got money
Or in power
It’s so many
Cases coming
To the light
Now
Of unwanted
Advances
And the invasion
Of personal boundaries
No one is respecting
Their position
To be a teacher
And teach
Those below them
To improve
Their skills
And grow
Beyond their potential
So they can reach
All their dreams
And desires
Instead
Bosses
And
Mentors are
Taking advantage
And invoking
Invisible clauses
Stating to have
Any dreams
You have to
Give over
All dignity
And power
To save
What you
Worked hard for
What is wrong
With people
In this society
Not thinking
Their actions
Will not have
Consquences
It’s not a
Me
Me
Society
And plenty
Of people
Are not buying it
They are
Tired of getting
Stepped on
And
Taken advantage of
And not using
Their voices
It’s a revolution
Developing
People wanting equality
And are demanding
To be respected
And not what’s
Between their legs
The day is here
No one is
Staying in the shadows
And
No more keeping
Silent
For these bastards and cowards

Friends to
The end
A bestie
And definitely
Part of the family
Always borrowing
Your clothes
And eating
You out of
House and home
Being that
One person
In the group
That is bat shit
Crazy
Loud
A pain
In the ass
With every
Screw lose
In their body
Constantly
Talking alot
Of crap
To everybody
The best
Damn friend
To have
Having
Your back
When the
Time comes
For action
Up for anything
And everything
Down to party
Ready to jump
Into a fight
To defend you
With no explanation
Just instincts
And out of
Blind loyalty
It’s a love that
Is unconditional
No DNA needs
To bind them
It’s an
Unbreakable
Connection
Between them
That made
Friends into family

“You Damn Sheep”

I did not
Read the
Fine print
It was a
Clause in it
It states
They can
Abandon me
After
The millionth
Sheep
I am a restless
Soul
That can not sleep
My eyes are
At half mass
My body is weak
As I lay
In bed
I start to sink
Into an oblivion
Between the sheets
I toss
And turn
20171128_213543
Looking for
The sleeper sheep
To come
To me
So I can
Count them
And fall
Into deep
Sleep
But
They are
Nowhere
To be found
They refuse
To help me
They rather
Deal with
The easy peeps
That
Go down
By the tenth
Sheep
I begged them
Time and again
Not to abandon me
And save me
From this fate
Of restless nights
Running together
I don’t know
Today’s date
I need their
Patience
And
Help
I can not
Do it by myself
I need them
Yet those
Dirty little
Bastards rather
Steal from me
Taking my sanity
With my
Lack of
Sleep
I warn everyone
Don’t be
Like me
Read everything
They give
To you
It’s deception
In the hearts
Of
Lazy
Creepy Sheep
Who are
Picking and
Choosing who
Gets sleep

Waiting feels
Like a lifetime
And dying
Is an eternity
Either way
I risk
Being lost
It’s hell
In the middle of
Somewhere
Surrounded
By nothing
Wondering
Aimlessly
With
No direction
Just walking
In circles
Like I’m crazy
Looking
For something
That is rare
And hard to find
A piece
Of happiness
In the form
Of two pills
One states
Lie down
On my back
And die
The other
States
Stand tall
on my feet
And fight
To the death
If I have to
Either fate
By my hands
Are
Bad versus worst
Case scenario
I need
Something
More drastic
Taking all worries
Away
Of picking
The wrong one
So I’m
Giving it over
To a judger
A devil’s advocate
That is
Capable
Of weeding out
The ungrateful
And
The unworthy
With specific
Instructions
To give
My heart
To the one
Ready to die
For me
In order
To live
Forever
Up
In heaven
Beside me
With no
Fear
Deceit
Or
Heartache
To come
Home to

“My Limit Is Here”

20171124_232412

Keep trying me
I dare you
My heart is
Out of this
Stop testing me
You really
Want me to
Fail drastically
I have no more
Cheeks
To turn
I’m there
Now
I’m tired of
Deceitful
Trifling liars
Being around
Here
I am
No
Saint
By any means
It will be
A cold day
In hell
Before
I die
For anyone’s sins
I’m tired of
People taking
My kindness
For weakness
It was called
Tolerance
And it is
At the limit
You’ve
Done me wrong
You’ve voided
Your
Unconditional
Love status
That bridge
You had
It’s condemned now
And deadly
To travel
I am not
Your mother
A friend
Or your family
Don’t
Call me
I don’t want to
Smell your
Shit fragrance
I will never
Help you
If you’re stranded
I can’t stand you
I’m ready to
Snap back
And finish this
I’ve extended
My hand
I’m done
Being the
Better one
It’s time
For me to be selfish
I’m Saving my
Last fingers
To survive with
I just want
Peace
And to be
Left alone

“Island Of Our Own”

20171119_220436
All I ask
Is that you
Promise
Yourself
That you
Will surrender
Your stress
Lock it up
Keeping it
Away from
This happiness
With both
Want to share
The pain you
Had before me
Don’t give
It so
Much control
Just
Direct all
Your senses
And
Concentrate
On us
Let’s stay
In our world
Our own piece
Of heaven
In the center
Of a
Complicated world
No outside
Madness
Will ever
Enter
What
Is outside
Stays outside
Where it can’t
Hurt us
Never
Destroying
What we’ve grown
This kingdom
Is no kingdom
Without this bond
I will always
Be your refuge
And you will be mine
So
Let me
Be that
Barbed wire
Surrounding
Protecting
And
Keeping you
Mentally
And
Emotionally strong
Don’t worry
All trespasses
Will not enter
So relax
And let go
Leaving all
Your worries
Behind you
When you
Come across
This heavenly
Threshold
Where we
Have built
A strong foundation
I can guarantee
All our past
Sweat and tears
Will hold
It up
In any storm
No weathering
Or
Taking shelter
Anywhere else
We are home

“Crashing Below”

20171118_080130
I’m standing
Naked
And exposed
With no secrets
To hide
While everyone
Gauk at me
And shake
Their head
As I tell
My truth
I’m tired of
Being the
Leading lady
In this
Drama series
Full of hate
I’m sick
Of making
People believe
The lies
We are spoon
Feeding them
It’s cheap Caviar
In an expensive
Restaurant
We can’t pay
We are not
The perfect couple
We have not
Been happy
And in love
For some time
It’s only a front
For company
On special occasions
Or on family days
Packed with fun
I’m just tired
Of pretending
That
We have a home
When it’s
Only four walls
And furniture
It is
Empty with
No soul
I am no longer
Afraid
Of losing
This thing
We’ve built
With smoke screens
And mirrors
It’s time to let go
I’m not getting
Paid for
My skills
I’ve played
This character
Well enough
This award
Winning performance
As the good wife
It is played out
And I’m
Canceling
The show
I’ve been
Dangled
Off a
Condemned bridge
For far
Too long
I felt him
When he let go
Losing his grip
On my hand
My death
Was slow
I fell
On the rocks
And
My body
Split
In two
Yet that
Wasn’t my torture
It was when
He
Looked down
Stared back
And laughed
At me
Without a care
Where did
It all go wrong
When did you start
Hating me
I remembered
You loved me
You said
You saw
A life
Within me
But your actions
Said differently
My best friend
Became my enemy
And the murderer
That left me
Freezing
In the cold

“Deeper Than The Physical”

20171117_210957.jpg
Under the surface
Is a glorious beauty
In the depths
Of select souls
In this world
They bring clarity
To the blind
And the unloved
These souls
Have no hidden
Clause within them
All you have
To do is
Look further
Than your eyes
To see
Without Your
Sight
And presumptions
Leading you
To doubt
What could be magical
And freeing
Use
Whatever
Your heart
Your gut
Or intuition
Doesn’t matter
Just feel
They say
Beauty is in the eye
Of the beholder
It’s true
Can’t you see
Won’t you look
Beyond
The beauty
Of the physical
Outer layer
Somewhat deeper
Than the sea
There is a gem
Precious and rare
Inside of those
You would think
That wouldn’t be
They are full of Hope
And potential
But are consider
Ugly
Because no one
Has looked
Past the broken wing
And side halo
Hanging off their head
Dirty from
Getting
Down and dirty
In the trenches
Going deep
In a world
That don’t take
Kindly to hoping
And individual dreams
Yet they soldier
On to spread love
With smiles
And simple gestures
Through compassion
And their humanity
With no bias
In their heart
Towards color or gender
Their heart
Only beats
To the drum
Of love and
It’s ready to love
Another unconditionally
With only
The utmost purity
There are no conditions
What you must
Do for them
They are genuine
With no intentions
To use
Or hurt
Anybody
They refuse
To do it
Out of
Personal gain
They have
No jealousy
No hate
Within them
They win
When you win
When they help
All people
Succeed
In accomplishing
Their dreams
To living in
Their happily
Ever after

“Who’s In Control”

20171116_233449
No one
Knows your life
Or the struggle
You make
On a daily
Just don’t lie
About it
Live your Truth
Don’t hide
Behind the lie
That you are
An independent woman
When you rely
On men to pay
Your bills
And give you gifts
Answer
One question
What would you do
If men
Did not
Paying
Would you even
Consider it
To take off
Your clothes
And prance for them
You say men
Don’t take advantage
Of a you
Because you’re
Your own boss
But all you’ve bossed
Is opening your mouth
And laying on your back
Any right
It’s your decision
You made
Your choice
But
Are you really
Being true
To yourself
When you’re the
Next act
Following someone else
Stripping
For tips
Why are not
Confident
In your brain
And your good sense
To make money
The right way
And be your own boss
In any event
It’s your decision
To live your life
You don’t
Have to answer
To me
It’s not my life

“Tunnel Vision”

20171115_225550
I do not
Need
To walk
In anyone
Else’s shoes
I will
Never be
A failure
I’m a winner
In my heart
Of hearts
I came
To my senses
I saw
What I was meant
To be
It’s not
Being with you
That person
Was a stranger
That possessed
My body
And corrupted
My soul
I cried
For days
To cleanse
Myself
When I wiped
My eyes
I was able
To see
The truth
For the
First time
I saw
With new sight
It was a
Vision of beauty
It was me
Smiling bright
I was
Without you
And my
Life was
All right
I promised myself
To never
Allow that image
To fade away
I finally
Had my strength
You made
Me weak
In the past
I could only see
Through
Tunnel vision
I got so far
Off track
I was
On a mission
Trying to prove
You wrong
Forgetting
Myself
Just for that
Short while
It felt like
An eternity
Walking
In your shoes
I was
Doing dumb shit
Mirroring you
Your stank
Attitude
And I allowed
Your anger to
Consume me
I was lost
Inside of you
I had to get out
I broke
The only rule
I had for myself
To always
Be true
Be me
And never
Be a duplicate

“My Enemy Of My Enemy”

20171111_215635
You live
With them
Everyday
Going to
Family events
Birthdays
Funerals
And
Holidays
You shouldn’t
Have to
Be afraid
Of what
They will
Do behind
Your back
But you are
You can’t
Trust them
As far as
You can throw
Them
It’s that
Heartbreaking
Saying
Who needs
Enemies
When you have
Family
No stranger can
Do worst
Than them
Than people
Closer to you
They know
You better
Than anyone
They are family
Your secrets
Are their ammunition
And they use
Them
Like bullets
Hitting you
In rapid
Fire sessions
Center mass
Shredding your heart
Into pieces
Guaranteeing no
Chance of rescuitation
All that’s
Needed to
Be done
Is to
Pronounce you
DOA
At the scene

“Leave The Drama On TV”

I try
To keep
My life
Simple
And
Easy
To the best
Of my ability
By keeping
The most important
People close
And near to me
That love me
Dearly
I do not care
For liars
Thieves
And
Drama queens
To surround me
I have that on
Cable TV
I can watch
It any time
I feel the need
For a drama series
20171108_230828
Granted
No one
Owes me
Anything
Only thing
I ask for
Is peace
And respect
And I will
Come easy
With an open
Mind
And clean ears
To hear
You speak
Just have something
To say to me
I will not wait
For a open mouth
With a voice
That is silent
I don’t need
Your deafening
Silence
Inside of me
My gift
I gave
I showed up
To something
Ill-prepared
And slapped
Together with
Crazy glue
You threw
That opportunity
In the garbage
So easily
All you had
To do
Is be Real
Lead with honesty
Speak your truth
Then
Give your love freely
It would have
Been
A start
To a new beginning

“I’m Not Following Your Footprints”

20171107_221641
He created me
To be
An original
Someone unique
Marching to
My own beat
So stop
Your
Sanctimonious
Holier
Than thou
Routine
Concentrate
On where
You are going
After your
Life is complete
Your opinion
Of me
Does not
Define me
You do not
Know who I am
What I’ve seen
What I’ve
Been through
Stop being
So quick
To judge
And
Kill
People
Who are different
I am tired
Of you yelling
At the top
Of your lungs
About you
Being Christian
My life
Is not
For you
To judge
But you
Do it anyway
Telling me
My God
Will
Not love me
Because of
What I choose
To be
Or do
In my life
Yet he is
The one
That created me
So why do
You care
Where my soul goes
Heaven or Hell
It is not
Your problem
It is between
Me and my maker
He knows
Me better
Than anyone
That my heart
Is his
And filled
With his love
Pumping
Throughout me
He chooses
To gift me
The ability
To
Walk
Talk
Breath
Everyday
That his blessing
To me
You may not
See it
In his eyes
I’m unique
Special
And what
He created
Me to be
So let me be
Who I am
Suppose to be

“Professional Liars”

20171106_213932
We all know
Those
Type
Of people
Those
Pathological liars
They have
Never told
A truth
In their life
Even if their
Life depended
On it
Lying is
First and
Second nature
To them
They do it
Like breathing
Every inhale
And exhale
They take
And make
They engulf
The world with
Their toxicity
Killing
Anything
And everything
That’s good
Around
And in you
Painfully
And slowly
But when
You finally
Back off
And distance
Yourself
Out of
Self preservation
People look
At you
As if you
Are the devil
In the family
Asking
How could you
Hold a grudge
Towards your blood
And saying
You should
Be the bigger person
Turn the other cheek
To get slapped
Again
Hell no
It’s not
That type
Of party
I’ve turned
Enough cheeks
Now I’m black
And blue
All over
I’m tired
Of being
The bigger person
I didn’t do
Anything
Horrible
I just walked away
And that was
Best for me
My story
Is now a happily
Ever after
I had enough
I could not waste
No more time
On them
That’s why
You see a
Cold as ice
Demeanor
Towards them
I’ve played
The fool
Too many times
I’m tired of
Being their victim
Giving too
Much rope
For them to
Hang me
So stop trying
To change my
Mind
To make a truce
Between us
It does not
Benefit me
In the least
After they’ve
Lied
Stole
And
Cheated me
And still
Give no apology
