Cries of the Starving Class {Limerick}

****

the cries of the starving class omits tears
anger and frustration mounting for years
their concerns been displaced
their history erased
they’ve lost all patience and fear

in bloom
her buds open
she manifests beauty
swaying with the wind as her guide
she blooms

Wind, intimately
touches, slighty grazes my skin
similar to her

No Sleep

No sleep
no sleep for those who are awake
whose minds remain active
refusing to be passive
refusing to be passed up
pushed to the side
because you cant spot the truth in the lies
if you are asleep
eyelids get heavy
but when they close thats when they break the levees
and i’ll be damned
or a damn
to protect my unsuspecting people from your plans
flooding what little you have left for us
and whats left of us
when you have washed away the best of us
No….
no sleep
I welcome insomnia’s peace
it brings inner peace
and some calm to the chaos in the streets
so i will make my bed and i will lie
and i will rest
but will not close my eyes

NIGGER

****

Nooses forever tied around our necks, squeezing out the remnants of our
Identity, our independence, of intellectual aspirations, of our
Goals of establishing our own dominance, using our
Griots to tell our story, maintain our history, our legacy
Etched in stone, forever carved in the memory of man
Remembering that there were never any NIGGERs.

Here With Me

here with me
you will find the love you need
the love you seek
the love that love forgot
the love that loves with love
love with no alternative but to love
to love your love lovingly
love that will enhance love
beyond love’s known dimensions
love that will love you
when your love has failed you
love that only exists on a divine level
love that deities dreamed of loving
love that perfects love when love is perfect
more perfect than the love
Malcolm had for his people kinda love
more than Baldwin had for America kinda love
you know this love
but never knew of its love
never had a chance to know this love
because of lust disguised as love
that really despises love
but you can rise with love
and rise in love
and reside with love
here with me

winter
so cold, lonely
the trees are bare, barely
recognizable from prior
seasons

Moon Shine

she is my moon
she provides light for me in my darkest hour
even through her moods
3/4 of her spirit
1/2 of her beauty
even if you could fit the entirety
of her essence into a crescent shape
the outcome remains
she shines

REVOLUTION {Acrostic Poem}

****

Real people of the world
Evolve into Leaders, lead us to
Victory
Over the evil, over the manipulators
Lead us
Unify us
Teach us to use our intellect for
Insight, knowledge and
Observation to ensure that history does not repeat itself.
Never again. NEVER AGAIN.
