    From a clear cloth he was cut Right was right Left was left. True to himself and his values was he Full of adventure and laughter With a dash of compassion too- Was a man of honest love Raised to be a man as best as you could. When energy raced through him It bounced off others as well Cre...

    The brilliant woman, she did flee To find a challenge for us to Claim as if a golden key To her sacred morning pew Her life and love was staked by she. With grease and warmth we failed Children playing with a man’s tool In frustration as one we wailed, Young as we were, we played the foo...

    A world that runs on money That feeds off the vary color of green- By which that is printed And not by that which is taught. What do you cherish At the end of the day? The air you breath and the food you eat? Your home and your life? Your family and friends? What do you think of: When ...

    Loose bruised fists Bloody with tears Hold fixed hearts Caressing hopeful fears. In this world I work As a warrior for the lost Fighting in a world of confusion Even if my life is the cost. It’s my freedom of choice To fight for those who don’t have it Children of dark worlds Who...

    If I just rip back my sleeve If I just show you my arm You will see what makes me so entitled You will see a color that brings me galore I am born into a ranking Of lavish desires to be mine Of rights that should belong to much more Than just my color. If I throw back my hood If I look i...

    Can we actually capture With a net or force Woven with words and rhyme~ A limerick or two~ By the breath And pull that by which we do thrive Taken by a hint, a stone's throw away Such as a hop or skip Do we travel across the many ridges of Gaia Leaving scars of destruction In the mi...

    I don’t have a flat stomach My curves don’t wave when I walk My chest doesn’t push buttons off shirts My face isn’t spotless of red blotches I can’t wear a bikini right. My eyes are light blue And they flash when I’m full of emotion My legs are long And full of muscle that st...

    Tattered lies are passed from mouth to mouth, Like a wool sweater in the slums. Words are thrown like five point stars, And saliva like fire, stings those on whom it lands. I don't think that you get How the words you say cut and burn, Like the Devil's whip you take them down, Your crue...

    A word to describe A life not planned for. A baby not appreciated A man and not a boy. At dinner thoughts are to be shared But not by those who are to be seen And not by those who are not to be heard. Leave at 18 And don’t you look back Forget what you saw And forgive only if you mus...

    A guilty Dirty soul You are. The ground It beats And pounds. Through cracks Does plasma Seep out. Colors of Greens and Hues on fire. Your feet They stumble They fall. Arms do Reach up And embrace. Do you Understand or Comprehend it? The meaning I show To you. ...

    Innocence- What defines it? How do we lose it? Do we lose it? Is it taken away? Innocence- Does it disappear like a magic trick? Does it break out and fly away? Does it fade from day to day? Innocence- As the days fly by The nameless faces and places We get stuck between the definiti...

    Why must I chose a weapon? To fight this battle? I’d rather lay on the side Watch the others fall and bleed Feel my own heart beat Listening to the quiet drum As it rises above the trigger Like I’m the independent drum That the soldiers march to That the soldiers fire to That the soldi...

    We all yearn for that hand That holds some sort of reward Maybe you call it a dream But its more of a fight Each step carefully placed The magnitude not exactly clear But the axis tilts And the world screams for reason. Our bodies move And our lips trace words Our minds don’t exactly com...

    Like a painter paints A writer dips the quill in ink- Dragging the tip Over the lip Of the bottle- To drop off excess ink Words not written in time But a shape is formed When foreign syllables rhyme Painting picture on the canvas that is your mind....

    Revise what you televise The conversations not to be heard Not even whispered or uttered Like heavy breathing in the night Not to be acknowledge Not to be ignored. As you think through a thick cloud Of lies and judgment You forget who you really are And lose sight of what really defines l...

    It sounds like a bad rap A title that repeats itself Like a broken record. It looks like an unfinished thought Words with similar understanding But no direct meaning. It feels like a metaphor For someone of perfection But what are you comparing? It tastes like a dream Putting personi...

    An extension of yourself Is an arm or leg But what about the weapons you use The possessions of hate. An extension of yourself Is an embrace or soft touch But what about the music you make The possessions of love. The fire you endorse Not of flame but of fear Burns like water Tongues ...

    We hear it in the news And it echoes in our minds That the explosions are brought home The IEDs lay in our backyards Our safe haven is corrupted War splits our soil And feeds on our thoughts. Outsiders tunnel inside Dragging out our secrets And flaming them to display Pressuring the gro...

    From a country like Spain does a young girl travel Crossing land and oceans to get from a court’s gavel With her hair like a sleek waterfall of dark And her face of an unfortunate birthmark She does smile at all who pass But is greeted like a forgotten landmass Her name not known but forgott...

    Her blond hair and blue eyes Are nothing compared To her feet that run Her feet that hit the pavement Like lightning touching down. Her brave heart and open mind Are nothing compared To her arms that swing by her sides As her lungs pump air Like a fireman trying to put out a fire. Her...

    If you pressurize sand enough You soon get something you can see through Something we call glass. We use it to encase Anything of the soluble matter. With emitters that drive Like thorns to a rabbits side Where the underside is left bare The needle presses through To inject pain killing ...

    By the very thread And fibers that bond That stick That hold To it’s fellow friend or foe To their brothers To their sisters To a pattern they mold. They take the shape Of a garment of sorts To a shirt To a skirt To keep from getting cold. Music do they make When stroked When st...

    I want what is seared Into the massive cranium That is the brain. I want what is found Only in those who see The darkness, I suppose. I want the beat that radiates From the very core Of natural disasters. I want the adrenaline That pumps and pulls That plays on the mind’s existenc...
