“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

Nowhere
Says
Fear
Consternation
Discomposure
Is part
That description
Yet
This is a
Combination of
Something
That is
Building up
Only to
Boil over
Into something
Most deadly
A legalized killer
Playing
Judge
Jury
Executioner
In the street
Of our community
Putting targets
On the chest
Of people
Killing anyone
That they deem
Not human
We all
Can do
Without this
Melancholy
We need protection
Not
Twitchiness
Embedded
In the DNA of
A police officer
A peace officer
A soldier of

We need
Officers
Who have
A calm mind
A steady hand
Being a

With training
To see everyone
As humans
Not bullseyes
Moving amongst
Our community
Having that abilty
To deal with

And
Be

Not someone
Part of

Looking for revenge
Instant justice

Unarmed

A carcass
Needing

Worn on someone’s chest
Placed in their record
As a legalized

It is
A Killing
A Murder

Guns should be

Majority of
Situations

Solved
Without killing
Look at
The prison system
Full to capacity
Getting fuller
By the minute
How do you
Suppose
They
Got there
Alive
Breathing
They were
Arrested
Convicted
And
Imprisoned
Either
Receiving
Justice
Or
Injustice
By the system
But alive
Nonetheless
Living to

“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

“Human Doormat”

20180315_230924
How
Can you
Continue through
Life
Being
Disrespected
Unappreciated
Taken advantaged of
Everyday of
Your life
Question
When did you
Sorry
Do not answer
That question
Because
I have realized
Maybe
You have not
Noticed
That you are
A human doormat
So
I need you to
Come with me
Let me
Show you
Look in
This mirror
Do you see
Your dignity
Do you see
You are
Floating around
In denial
And
To be clear
Not the river
It is
Your form of mind
Your perspectives
Are off
When you choose
To please
Everyone
In this world
Not seeing
Your worth
By
Allowing
Dirt to
Be wiped
On you
Allowing
People
To walk all
Over you
Do you understand
Nobody
Will care
About your
Feelings
Being hurt
Or
See that
It is
Physically
Emotionally
Mentally
Wearing you out
Your kindness
Is beautiful
But
It is
Your weakness
To them
That they are
Willing to
Kill slowly
It is
Every time
They use you
Please
Stop ignoring
This
You can be
Kind
But
Be smart
About it
You are
A person
With feelings
If you do not
Speak up
No one
Will respect
Them

“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

“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

“Body Speak You Listen”

20180223_234013
My body was
Overheating
I felt
Very helpless
It was like
A sahara desert
Had surrounded me
Heat was consuming
Ever part of me
My core temperature
Was boiling
Beyond capacity
I felt like
I was trapped
In an airtight
Container
Closed so tight
No steam
Could escape me
I could not
Calm down
My rage
It was taking over
Every part of me
I tried
To walk
It off
But each step
I took
Felt like
I was fighting
Against
An invisible hand
Constantly
Weighing me down
Making it hard
For me
To stand
Under the pressure
It was
Forcing
My head down
As if I was not
Worthy to rise
My legs were
Buckling
Thoughts kept
Repeating to me
It is better sit
Before becoming
One with the pavement
But my stubbornness
Was on Ten
Telling me
To keep walking
Get somewhere safe
To Rest
You can not
Stay here
Miserable
Sleepy
Nauseous
Drinking water
To settle
My stomach
And
Blasting
The A/C
On the
Lowest setting
In my face
Was freezing me
But I dare not
Turn it down
It was helping
Just a little
I kept whispering
To myself
You can
Do this
So
I bowed my head
Slightly
Squinted
My eyes
Keeping them
Wide enough
To see
My way through
The back streets
To get me
Home
So I can
Sleep off
This siege
Taking my body
Through changes
Sleep will be
My reset
On my
Perspective
Equilibrium
And
Energy
So I can
Start over
Full strength
And stronger

“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

“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

“How Do You Know”

20171031_222212
It’s easy
To be deceived
They come as
A teacher
A police officer
A family member
No one is exempted
To who
May be dangerous
Around children
I want to raise
A Healthy
Strong willed
Well rounded
Mentally stable
Productive
Compassionate
Individual
That will not
Allow
Any obstacle to
Discourage them
From
Reaching their goals
And doing their best
While using their
God’s given talent
To be happy
I will promise
To teach
And prepare them
For the concrete jungle
Help them
To not fall
Into the grasp
Of exploiters
My child
Any child
We need
To protect them
Stop
Calling them
Ugly
Stupid
And worthless
It lowers self-esteem
Making them
Easy prey
For the evil
To touch them
It’s lurking
And
Walking amoung us
On a daily
Ready to
Take advantage
Of their vulnerability
Demolishing their
Future dreams
For the price
Of their innocence
They will tell
Them lies
To gain their trust
Influencing them to
Depend on them
To give them love
And attention
That will not
Benefit them
In the least
I have to
Ask myself
How do I protect
And raise you
Keep you
Safe
I want a
Guarantee
Before I conceive you
That once I bring
You in this world
You will
Return the same
Way you left me
After you leave the nest
Will it be enough
To fill
You up
To capacity
With
My heart
My love
My everything
So many
Of these
Miserable
Horrible people
Want influence
And crush you
I’m so scared
Of the image
Seeing
My child
Broken
Defeated
And
Crying
Out of pain

“Break Their Hold”

All religious
Entities
Need to read
Their Holy Book
It’s not suppose to
Be a weapon
In human hands
It’s suppose to be
Divine inspiration
A record
Of a relationship
Between
God and humans
He did not
Put out
An Advertisement
And hire
No one
On this Earth
To be
Part of
His holy court
As judge
Jury
And Executioner
We all should
Be exhausted
By now
Of this ridiculous
Behaviour
We need to
Put our differences
Aside
And stand together
Stop all of
This mistreatment
Of your fellow
Man
Woman
Or
Child
Demeaning them
Disrespecting them
And killing them
Based on their
Color
Gender
Or lifestyle preference
It is no one’s
Business
But theirs
Stop taking away
Their choices
Free-will was given
By our one
And only creator
It’s too many people
Living in glass houses
Throwing stones
At other people
Just because
Someone does not
Believe in their beliefs
God will
Past his judgement
Just
Stop all this
Violence
And live Just
There is
Too much killing
It’s not about
Black Power
White Power
Brown Power
It is
Beyond that
I’m not going to
Dive into
The races
And get on
The bandwagon
Of who deserves
What
We are
All human
Fighting amongst
Ourselves
Being manipulated
By the masses
The instigators
Of the privileged
Controlling us
Dangling half truths
And all lies
In the media
Inciting
Old beliefs
Of hate
Ignorance
And stupidity
Having
Us to fight
Amongst ourselves
Being
Blind and not seeing
The truth
Right
In front of us
They want us to hate
Each other
To keep us
In line
While they cheat us
Out of our happiness
And our place
In heaven
Beside our maker
Their greed
Is a contagion
Wrapped in hate
Keeping us chained
To their nonsense
It’s time to
Call them
By their name
These
Politicians
Governmental agencies
And the Entitled
Are
Who they are
Minions of Satan

“Stand Up For Yourself”

Today
Either you
Will rise
And start fighting
To win back
What is yours
Or keep sinking
Into the quicksand
That they put you in
You have to know
They are standing
Nearby and
Watching you
Die a slow death
And laughing
While
You are struggling
You don’t have
To be
Stuck between
A rock and
A hard place
20171021_224629
Stop
Giving everything
And getting nothing
In return
From those
That don’t care
For you
Or have compassion
For your suffering
I don’t understand
Where is your dignity
Your backbone
To stand up for yourself
Do you like
Being preyed upon
Are you afraid
Of them
Hating you
Or getting mad
For you standing up
To them
And
Demanding respect
After they disrespected you
It is your right
To sometimes
Be selfish
You are giving
Too much
To the ungrateful
And they are using you
Taking your money
Your sanity
Just everything
That is good in you
When is it enough
For you
To say No
And keep
Something just for you
How is it so hard
For you
To put yourself
Before those that harm you
They give nothing
To uplift
Support
Or just love you
Stop being a
Meal ticket
That keeps giving
Until you are empty
Take charge
Of your destiny
Stop the complaining
And stand up to them
Be your own person
Or they will kill you
Take your spirit
Your will
And your soul
Leaving a shell
Behind
It’s time for a change
Before there
Is nothing
Left of you
To find

“Things Within”

20171020_222046
There is a war
Beneath my skin
No one sees
And I feel
It almost daily
Little people
Are inside
Of me
Killing me
Slowly
With torture
I feel
Little
Daggers
Piercing me
From the
Inside out
They are
Trying to
Break me
By any means
Necessary
Through
Scratches
Cuts
And
Gapping wounds
Breaking down
My defenses
One by one
They are
Everywhere
It’s a hostile takeover
I can not
Stop them
It’s an explosion
Of craters
Forming
As big
As the Grand Canyon
My skin
Is covered
By a red color
It’s leaking
As if
Someone shot me
And reloaded
Making sure
Of no survival
I can not
Replenish enough
Fluids
To save me
My heart
Can not
Take this stress
It’s weakening
Me
I am dying
By the minute
I’m falling
Into pieces
Shattering
To a point
Of never
Being put back
Together
Am I the only
One seeing this
Does that mean
I’m going crazy
Is
My perception
Of what
I’m going through
Too vivid
In imagination

“Have Your Childhood”

20171019_232812
It’s false advertising
A sexy package
That society
Is selling
Sex
Drugs
And fantasies
Living
Out of control
Acting like
No one has
Home training
Wilding out
Doing endless parties
Growing old
Too soon
Aging
By the minute
Drying up
Their bodies
In the process
Why does
Anyone want
This type of life
To grow up
So fast
Skipping childhood
To being irresponsible
It’s a glamourizattion
By the media
Adults on tv
Playing on
People’s fantasies
On how their
Life is suppose to be
Being rich
And famous
With unlimited mansions
Of course
I would want that
To skip through chapters
Of my development
Avoiding school
To being a celebrity
I’m thankful
I had self control
I had plenty of time
To get there
So why not
Enjoy my childhood
It’s here one minute
Gone the next
Blinders will be taken of
Real soon
Showing truth about
How life will be
After turning eighteen
In the eyes of the government
I’m a legal adult
Able to get tax
But not old enough
To drink
Responsibility
Becomes an unwanted attachement
A lifelong companion
And I’m playing
On the government’s playground
Where they are
The biggest bully
Stealing money
Straight out of your pockets
Big brother
He won’t protect you
When he wants his money
He’s getting his
So why are you rushing
To get burnt out
By the dollar bill
This race
Will take
A lifetime
An endless cycle
Of Sleep
Or not sleeping
Always thinking
Of ways to
Getting
To the top
Of the food chain

“Mission A Go”

20171012_224014
It’s the fourth of July
Year-round
In this bedroom
Mission is a go
Overwhelm me
Make all my senses
Taste
Smell
Touch
Sight
Hearing
Burst and shoot
Like firecrackers
No t.v.
No phones
We are our
Only distractions
We will be our
Best and most engaging
Entertainment
Lighting up the sky
Causing the
Ohhhs and awwws
Out of excitement
I want your love
To take me over
No thinking
Just doing
Animal instincts
Tearing and devouring
And
Smothering me
With unlimited kisses
From my head to my toes
Igniting my ignition
Putting me in overdrive
Sending me plummeting
Out of control
Off the highest mountain
As you touch my body
I want to quiver and shiver
As if I’m cold
But I am not
My body is spasming
In a seizure
Blurring the lines
Of lust and love
Causing goosebumps
To line up
All over my body
At attention
Ready and willing
To do whatever
Your marching orders
Tell them
Without questioning
I trust you to
Complete every mission
Diving deeper
Into my waters
There are no dangers
Other than
Falling deeper
In love
Than we are
This moment
In each other’s arms
Not wanting to let go
In fear of enemy capture

“Stop Killing My Children”

20171011_225441
Yes ma’am
No ma’am
Is what I’m teaching them
My child
Is my responsibility
There are no
Uncontrollable
Outbursts
Talking back
Fighting
Cussing at anytime
Telling me no
When I tell them
To do something
Their homework
Done
Their room
Clean
Graduating
A must
Book smarts
Street smarts
The legal hussle
Of this system
On check
Striving to be their best
Being
Something more
Than a thug
Or a thot
Being hard headed
And loose
Is not an option
They are
Prepared and avoiding
You
The ones with guns
Ready to kill them
Coming from my womb
Don’t try to
Slide my child
On the assembly line
Tattooing
CPS property
On their ass
Telling them to call
You
When I discipline
And correct them
This is not an unlimited
Reproduction
Making children
So you can kill them
When they are misbehaving
Out in these streets
Where guns are easily
Accessible
You won’t tie my hands
I am the Queen
In this castle
And
My King is right
Beside me
Supporting me
In my rants
Together or not
We are their protectors
Teachers
And
Nuturers
The creators of these
Little ones
In this house
We established for them
To follow
Rules and regulations
We are preparing
Them
To live
And
Be
Part of
A productive society
But
If you want them
Come and get them
Take care of them
Raise them to be
What you call
Decent human beings
Disposable children
To be killed off
Lied on
By the media
Giving a poor excuse
Why they deserved to die
Saying
They were
Part
Of a broken home
Where no one loved them
A disgrace
A delinquent
Given
A death sentence
In these streets
Not my kids
They
Will not fall
Through those
System cracks
These future
Kings and Queens
Will be
Making moves
Like champions
Building empires
Unstoppable
Pillars of the community

“Too Much At Once”

20171008_225531
I opened
Two boxes
And can’t close them
Again
Those damn
Shiny boxes
Were so tempting
I released a plague
Out of them
It’s twisting and turning
My life
And crumbling it
I’m fighting
To climb
From the depths of
This Earth
Cause
My @ss is burning
This can be heaven or hell
For me
On this new journey
I feel like I am caught
Between a rock
And a hard place
And it’s killing me
My blessings
And curses
Are mixed up
Confusing me
If I walked away
To catch my breath
And stop from spinning
I’m suffocating from
Lack of air
I’m seeing things
That have different meaning
I won’t allow
No one
To break me
Break my heart
And tell me lies
Of who I was to them
And who they believe
I am
To be
I am not that person
I used to be
Bright eyed
And bushy tailed
Cute
And cuddly
I have a way
About me
I am cautious
With my curiosity
It’s so much
To take in my mind
It’s overwhelming
I don’t know where to start
At the beginning
Or
At the end
To this story
A drama series
That won’t end
Or die off easily

“Family Ties”

20171007_230632
We are caught
In governmental
Red tape
We are legalized strangers
Linked as family
Based on a common ancestor
Stating that we are
Blood bound relatives
Yet it still does not
Meet my definition
Of family
If what you know
About me
Can be found
On the internet
In public record
My name
My birthday
Possibly my favorite color
Any stranger
Can be family
If they want
To know me superficially
I want something more
In-depth
A real connection
Someone I can depend on
That will love me
With no ulterior motives
I don’t want to rely on
What I was told
From birth
You are kin
And I have to accept it
I won’t
Love you
Unconditionally
After being
Lied
Robbed
and taken advantage of
At some point
You have to release them
Enemies as family
Is not what I’m
Looking for
Falling without
A safety net
Crashing and burning
A horrid death
At the hands of
These so called people
Because of history
My survival instincts
Flight or fight
Kicks in
To protect
Myself
I don’t have time
For this foolery
Because I was told
You were family

“Popping Your Cork”

20171002_222013.jpg
Too often
Beautiful
Vibrant
Intelligent women
Lose all common sense
When it comes to dudes
Picking at the bottom
Of the barrel
Thugs
Broke back
Pretend preachers
Down-and-out ballers
And left over
Take aways
That surely have spoiled
They are damaged goods
Sold as is
Damn duds
No return
No refund
No bargain
In the end
Two choices
Either
Stick with him
Or
Dump him
No one else wants
Your broken toys
If every woman
Step back
And notice
Something magnificent
Within them
A geyser
Growing
And
Ready to explode
It’s an easy outcome
That will happen
Depends on the man
Standing before her
A good man
Knows how to tender
That passion
Turning it
Into blissfulness
That gives
Back
Over and over again
But
A Boy
In a man’s skin
A guy
That has no goals
For his future
Won’t amount to $hit
Won’t be $hit
And is full of $hit
And constantly
Looking
To ignite her fuse
Waiting to see
Her blow
Just to call
Her crazy
And out of control
This is a man
That doesn’t love her
Won’t help her
Or don’t want her happy
Because he’s an @sswhole
Everyone is a threat to him
Because everyone
Sees his true self
Forget about decorum
It is time
To
Go insane
Get your point across
Let them have it
Pop your cork
Let it flow
Full steam ahead
Gain your sanity
Say everything
Bottled up
No one has the right
To walk all over you
Leaving you broken
And confused
Asking questions
Why your life
Is the way it is
Or
How come people
Treat you bad
I say it
It’s time you take control
And leave
Dumb @sses
In your rearview
Far in your past

“Untapped Strength”

Negativity
Breeds
Like a virus
Until all hope
Is gone
Sometimes you need
A special person
Supportive enough
To help you out
A flashlight
Guiding you
To your freedom
When you are drowning
By idle thoughts
Thoughts
That are suffocating
To a point
You can not breathe
Or function
Use
Your lifeline
When you’re tapped out
To help
You figure it out
Make sure they are
Ready
And willing to
Have your back
Someone that
Has everything
You need
Strength
Stamina
Devotion
And dependability
When you call
And you are close
To the edge
They are
Able
To pull
You back
20171001_190145
Everything is temporary
Life
Jobs
Relationships
And
Emotions
If Nothing
Is Right
Today
Give it
A few
Tomorrows
To get better
Your life is a gift
You leave it
Too soon
You will never know
Your potential
It’s a slow race
To the finish line
Yet everyone wins
Making it
Through their journey
Life is worth it
It’s better to be
Lost
And searching
Because is always
A good chance of
Being found
Or
You finding
Your own way out
Just
Believe
In yourself
Better days are coming

“Protecting My People”

20170929_162110
I take on the job
Free of charge
As a lioness
Being mean
Instinctive
Territorial
And protective
Watching over
Hidden diamonds
Covered
In the blackness
Inside the deepest
Darkest cave
Just sparkling
Bright and
Full of potential
Some people
Just need
To be
Protected
In some moments
I stand up
And defend
The innocence
That lives
Within
People
I call
Them
Pure hearts
And yes
I am their keeper
Sheltering them
From those
That are
Evil
Walking among
Normal people
I will pledge
To do my best
To not allow
Their extinction
They are amazing
Wonderful
Beautiful
Human beings
People take
Advance of them
Because they can
Stealing their
Pureness
Stunting their
Flawless
Happy
Joyful
Character
By
Abusing
Neglecting
Tossing them
Around
And throwing
Them in the garbage
I want to
Shake them
To get some
Sense in them
To stop being
Their predators
Entertainment
I want to
Help them
Get their life together
And
Start acknowledging
A worth
Of
Being someone
That has a future
Not being doormat
Walked on
Day and night
Taken advantage of
Because of their
Good nature

“Patiently Waiting”

20170929_171204
I can not pretend
To like you
Love you
Understand you
Or care for
Your well-being
I don’t
Do fakeness
My face
Mirrors my emotions
And my body
Reacts
To bull$hit
A built
In lie detector
Ready to go haywire
So
Please keep your distance
I’m afraid your propinquity
It may lead me
Into temptation
To act crazy
I’m everready
To put
My hands on you
Releasing all
My pinned up anger
Only for you
What you do
How you breath
Being in proximity of me
Makes me suspicious
I’m locked and loaded
My sonar is always
Tracking
Waiting on your
Boldness
To approach me
I will choose my battles wisely
But you come into my space
We going to war
All ammunition
Will be spent
If you know
What’s good for you
Keep on your side
And I’ll stay on mine
We will live
A full healthy life
Of being cooperative
Where we can coexist

“I’m Confused By You”

20170925_191930
How do you decipher
A mathematical equation
That was thought
To have been solved
Twenty years ago
The teacher approved
The answer
Saying you was correct
Then out of nowhere
You get
An outdated letter
Saying you failed
After they recalculated
All of the
So called data
I thought
Those years
Were behind me
Dead and Buried
Six feet deep
And a extra few feet
Cause I jumped in the grave
And stomped it
It’s restless spirits
A rising
Ghosts are haunting
Chanting in
Repeative whispers
Saying strange things
Like
I love you
I’ve missed you
And want to see you
It’s a miracle
Their eyes have opened
They’ve gained their sight
They finally noticed
I wasn’t there beside them
All this time
I spent a lifetime
Of detachment
Hiding in plain sight
Now I am no longer invisible
I’m so hesitant
To find out the answer
Do you
Want
My forgiveness
My tears
The broken pieces of my heart
To mend them
I’m not sure
I will be able to hand
Them all over
So careless
What is your
Ulterior motive
There’s a reason
For this call
You’re not telling me
The whole truth
Let’s count to three
Rip off
This bandaid quickly
Cut to the chase
Throwing it all
At once
The kitchen sink included
Because that day
I stood before you
Pleading my case
Trying so hard
Overexurting myself
Putting all my effort
In explaining
How priceless
And irreplaceable
I am
I still can not comprehend
How
I had to sale
Myself
As if I was brand new car
I was not a thing
I was a person
With feelings
You just wasn’t
Interested then
So how come
Now
I’m important

“Hey Mister”

Hey Mister
Excuse me
I have a story
To run by you
Let’s take a ride
On memory lane
For a while
To see if you remember
That girl
Back in the day
That had your
Tail a waging
Well that firecracker
She’s my mother
Stop hating on her
She does not deserve it
She did what
You couldn’t
And was a parent
She did her job
And then some
Taking care
Of her responsibility
I heard the rumors
From those wicked
Little birdies
How you denied me
Because of my color
Even Stevie Wonder
Could see
I looked just like you
A splitting image
And very good balance
Of you and my mother
Thankful back in those days
We only needed
Grandma
The DNA investigator
She
Took one look at me
And said
Stop bothering her
I was your child
And Stop your denial
Yet that wasn’t what
Crushed my image of you
I had no anger
I was very observant
I continued
To give our relationship
A chance
And kept visiting
To get to know you
But the only thing
I remember
You never getting close to me
Staying in the shadows
Watching me
Never interacting with me
That hollowed feeling
Was disturbing and grew
Inside me
20170924_232707
You had no light
Shining to guide me
I felt
So lost
Being near you
So as distance grew
I went with it
Letting go of
False dreams
Of
Being a daddy’s little girl
Even in the same room
We were on different planets
You on yours
Me on mine
With no way
Between them
I didn’t pretend
Or glamourize you
I saw reality
You was my birth father
And wasn’t daddy material
We were linked
By blood
And nothing else
Those dreams of
A little girl
Wanting a daddy
Is long gone
And almost forgotten
You just missed something
That was glorious
The good
The bad
And the ugly
Of being there
Celebrating with me
My accomplishment
Protecting me
From bad relationships
And loving me
Unconditional
Who stands now
In front of you
Is someone
That is a
Good person
Beautiful
Intelligent
Good heart
Be happy
I’m still here
Alive and kicking
Hard as ever
I’m just Numb
To childish fantasies
I’m a grown woman
I don’t hate you
You’re a stranger
And if you want to know me
Pick up your phone
And call me
My number has been same
For decades

“Don’t Make Your Issues Mine”

20170922_232017
He has a lot of growing
Up to do
He knows what
He needs to do
To get back into
My good graces
That’s if he does not
Want to lose
His future
The woman
He wants to call
Wifey
And
The future mother
Of his unborn children
There is no comparison
Between
You and I
The problem
With hoes
And hoodrats
You try
Too hard
Playing on the fence
It’s more
To what’s
Between your legs
That will keep him
You have
To have
Intelligence
And beauty within
The type of woman
I am
And what I do
To keep any man
Is my secret
You think I am not
Aware of my surroundings
I see you thirsty
Hoes
You are irrelevant
To even try to compare
His lust for you
And his love for me
We are not
In the same area code
He wasn’t mine
When you met him
He was free
To do as he pleased
You and he
Did what
You did together
That’s on you
He did
What dogs do
While off their leashes
Running around
The neighborhood
Humping every
8itch in heat
It’s funny
You caught
Feelings
Stop using me
As the excuse
On why you
Can’t keep him
The best kept secret
Is that
When he’s with you
No matter the distance
He’s craving me
Dreaming of me
Wanting me
All day and night
I laugh
When you say
What’s between
His legs is magic
Yet that magic
Didn’t keep me
I got something
More in value
The key to his heart
You have fun
Doing what you do
I’m not scared to lose him
You can’t take
What’s not yours
In the first place
If I really
Wanted him
I will call him
But in our circumstance
He needs to grow up
And be the man
A leader
So until then
He will wish for
The woman
That is me
That can only fill his desires

“Gone Home”

By: Yellowbonewonda

There are some
People on this Earth
That exist
I think
They are heaven
Sent
Placed on Earth
To be tested
For whatever time frame
Of their pureness
Before they are taken
Into God’s grace
These are the Gone to Soon
Innocents of the world
Babies
Toddlers
Teens
Elders
That were
Not blinded
By the Devil’s
Charm and glamour
They saw the truth
And followed the path
They were sent on
To earn their wings
This test is like the
Hunger games
But no one is being killed
To win
A contagion of the deadly sins
Are set free
And the ones that are immune
From gluttony
Lust
Greed
Pride
Sorrow
Despair
Despondency
Wrath
Vainity
And Sloth
Are the ones chosen
For immediate release
You will never
See it in their eyes
Or in their demeanour
They have been through
Hell but they
Have never shown it
Walking through
Live minefields on a daily
Stepping with confidence
Knowing that wherever
They place their foot
Nothing will harm them
Because
There are angels
Guiding and protecting them
Shielding them from the blast
When others
Traveling along side
Of them
Are getting blown up
By the minute
These beautiful people
Are the anoitted
They are
Withstanding every
Trail and tribulation
Thrown at them
If you don’t know them
They are
The ones standing
Head high
Smiling from ear to ear
Like nothing has ever touched them
They are a testament
Of their faith
They believed
In a higher power
That all is well
Even when it
Doesn’t seem
Like it
They were told
In their dreams
Everything will be better
And to trust
Even when
No money is coming
Everything will be
Provided for
Just be happy
A roof is over their head
Clothes on their backs
And they have a full belly
Every thing else
That trickles through
Is icing on the cake
So I tell you
Stressing on things
Out of your power
Is something not worth it
Because tomorrow
Is not promised
And every minute
Should be
Treated as a blessing
Keep smiling
Through adversity
And follow that lighted path
To the old kingdom

“Where Are You Going”

20170919_222038
When it comes
To Mother Nature’s
Wrath
She has no plan
She doesn’t care
About your circumstances
Floods
Earthquakes
Brush Fires
Snow storms
Droughts
Are thrown at us
She is blind
Like Lady Justice
We can’t do anything
But run and hide
Hoping she’s not mean
Or spiteful enough
To keep chasing
After us
When she fights
Nothing is fair
She throws
Houses
Buildings
Cars
Drowns
Anyone and everyone
Devastating nations
She is an equal opportunist
That speaks a language
Everyone understands
Globally
Her wrath
Spreads
All over
She doesn’t care
About anything
She has two questions
To ask
All of humanity
Live or die
And whatever your
Personal preference
On who you love
Political stance
And who you hate
Is irrelevant
Your fighting
Is not her problem
That’s your cross to bare
If you are
Rich or poor
Black or white
Democrat or Republican
Gay or Straight
Her mission is to
Destroy or let live
She is judge and jury
Of the physical land
That we live on
She doesn’t care about
Where your soul
Goes
Heaven or Hell
That is up to
A much greater power
Until then
She will show her truth
Through her actions
She doesn’t lie
Or make promises
To spare anyone
Over another
She accepts no bribes
Money can’t buy
Your life
No one
Is safe
Your
Last battle
With good and evil
Is based on your actions
Before her rampage
Of this Earth
So pray to your maker
And be absolved of your sins
Get to high ground
Stay out of her path
And hope she doesn’t
Change directions
Coming to your hiding place
Wiping out
Your existance
