So much power from the young. We need to pay attention to them and nurture them, they deserve it.

“Black” Man

Today he’s so melancholy; onlookers glance at a felon probably,

they label his camaraderie gangs, his pants don’t hang,

he doesn’t throw tantrums, he’s not a primate-he’s handsome,

but they say watch him-he steals, he’s not a thief and he too feels, he’s not looking for a record deal-he tries, he applies while he’s forced two be categorized by filling out a section he despised, simultaneously his friends die, he buys nice things, he never yells-he’s intuitive and writes things, no one can encompass what his plight brings,

nights bring thugs that are hungry, and NO that’s not drug money, your funny,

no walking thru his neighborhood, those same neighbors say he’s too good,

cause he won’t really associate, his lifetime goal isn’t to procreate and he scoffs at orange ball, more like Warhol, all I’m saying is when you see a

“BLACK” man, it’s your call.

Ambitious

I’m waiting, watching, anticipating
as others achieve their goals…
hope has escaped my soul…so young,
yet,
so old, I would love to grow and be bold…
like the others that will have their stories told,
in the history
until my children’s, children grow old…
So,
I do the unforgivable to achieve the impossible
while temporarily escaping the inevitable
and turning into a man that is no longer reliable!
I’m doing anything to achieve those financial tools,
 yes,
and I’m breaking all the rules…
no reason to excuse these actions
that have impacted so many people I’ve used…
my soul is so bruised
and
I’m falling into an abyss
no longer to be seen by mankind,
 my ambitions erased from my mind but,
Yes!,
I have arrived!
 Only if I didn’t tell so many lies
 trying to disguise
who I really was on the inside,
my happiness
 wouldn’t have Fallen by the waist side!
 I did everything wrong
 I was playing on the wrong side…
only if I knew
Christ died
for me to live on the
 right side!

Inspiration;

I wrote this poem because, so many people are living for money, worshipping money, and dieing for money. In the mist of their search for money they lose themselves and their happiness. I pray for these people because god has given us all gifts, gifts that we are great at and we love doing. The only thing is that most don’t know or believe in Jesus Christ so, they continue to do things outside their purpose or design and by doing this they may achieve maximum finance but may never have true happiness! Its all about quality of life you can have a billion dollars in the bank and feel empty. Just know that investing in money does not lead us to purpose in life but, investing in Christ will lead us to purpose of life and that’s the ultimate price! So, until the next time be blessed and leave the stress to the rest! BIG WORDZ!

Soft as a dream
No sounds, so serene
A river runs wide thru my eyes
Relishing in his being

Breathing his thoughts
Turned to words untaught
Bouncing from my drum
To that dwelling seldom saught

To me, he is a deity
Transforming my identity
To only his slave
Yet in all tranquilty
