Poem for black lives matter.

  • My daughter have a thing for poetry. I had a thing for poetry too but she wants to pursue it and empower those with her words. LISTEN…

Leave your masculinity. 

I’ve befriended you like I intended to 
so you can believe, and not misconceive


beneath me is concrete


someplace I stand faithfully 


I’m introducing you to what I call a WOMAN

We can share what we want to share

figure out if it’s fair or what is fair

we can also convince ourself there is no such thing as humans 

because your heart been broken once before by one

you never knew why so it left you unsure


believing every one 

is masked with the intentions of being a vicious monster. (woman or man)

I’m eager for you to witness what a human feel like?

I’ll lay comfortable with you as you soak in the mattress 

transfer all the doubt and assumptions to me

you’ve been punished enough just lay still and consume my aura as I seek beauty within you. 

you have nothing to lose

let your guards down, lay your head down

open your inner being in conceiving just an innocent beauty I call a WOMAN

As your vulnerability peers through notice no judgment from I 

in fact, it’s very serene  

being that I’m awfully benign 

I’m soft with the touch and gentle on the ears

you will need to relax

I’m here to help you open more

let’s leave the pain there 

I gotcha

feel it through the light, I gotcha

hold on my fellow, I gotcha

now open the door so I can get to you. remember I gotcha.   

The life poem that’s remarkably true.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.
Take kindly to the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all it’s sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
-Max Ehrmann

The endless thoughts

The endless thoughts

Within your day it is a time call the cool down stage. What if you don’t get to this stage in your day. You know what happens, for me at least, I write a poem, a thought or short story. I title it jotting my thoughts then I cherish it. When I do go back to reread  it’s so serene, reflected to be my cool down stage in words. To me and probably many aspiring writers this is the best time of the day, sort of speak.
