A MAN NAMED SICK ©

I knew this man named Sick,
The way he talked and the way he walked,
I knew he was slick,
He told me he was sharp on his game,
I told him truth would be his claim to fame.

Sick said he didn’t have to play by the rules,
I told Sick, he could end up in all the wrong schools,
Sick said, I am too damn overtly clever,
I said Sick, you are headed to that place called never,
Sick spoke about all he would do not to get to that place ever.

I told Sick to rethink his thoughts and change his ways,
Sick said, why should I? I’ve been doing this all my days,
I said, I don’t care what you do,
I’m giving you advice, just to help save yourself from you.

Sick just laughed at me and said, listen woman you can’t tell me nothing
that’s already embedded in my head,
I told Sick, you are so animated, inadequate, ignorant and not well read,
For the consequences of your lesser deeds of what you portray are gonna get you busted all upside your head.

I felt in my gut, this would be the last time I would ever see Sick again,
Knowing him from childhood and the neighborhood, he had become sin,
Moving forward from our conversation that day, I felt a need to pray,
For I knew Sick would not live a long life doing things in his way.

My day was done, so I decided to watch the six o’clock news, to my dismay,
The news struck my nerve about the conversation I had with Sick that day,
The reporter said, a young man was struck down by three bullets to the head,
News traveled fast from the neighbors, saying it was someone from our neighborhood, which was called and known as The Shred.

Sitting still I gazed at the television thinking about my premonition,
I was hoping it wasn’t the person whom I had envisioned,
Sick was the first person who came to my mind.
I said, Oh Lord, please no more death at this time.

Following my first mind, I rushed to the hospital to see if it was Sick,
The doctor asked me if I could and would identify this man,
I said I know this man and yes I can,
I told the doctor we all called him Sick but his true birth name was Rick.

The doctor continued with the scenario of what his gunshot wounds were,
The doctor also told of Sick’s last words of what the strife Sick had incurred,
At this time all the doctors gathered around me, while one told me he held on to his life as long as he could
for there was nothing else they could do or would,

Another doctor said, Sick was screaming and shouting for us to save his life,
He asked this particular doctor to call the woman who gave him the best advice.

RIP SICK.

SPINNING

SPINNING

Spinning around in a circle of wind, nimbus clouds and weather of hail
One only knows how dizzying a strong wind can prevail
Be it in the mid of day or be it in the early morning night
One will just continue spinning until they get it right

While the sun rises up spinning light into your eyes
Waking up will relieve  from the spinning full of sighs
Seems as though daylight starts to gleam
Just to think this may be only another twirling dream

Circling and twirling, twisting and turning too
Allowing for a chill to gust through the mist and moisture anew
Round and round  spinning all tables turning to the wind
Beckoning one’s call out to the spinning of the spinning day’s end

Gazing at a very dark cloud spinning around the house
Recognized as a twister spinning strong and ready to oust
Must get ready to get cover beneath the stairs for the force
Stables bust open get saved by the spinning horse

I ALWAYS CAME TO SHARE

I Always Came To Share

You felt so alone I had to wonder why
I thought to myself how could this be
I rose to the occasion to show you how to smile again
Showing love for you as God had given to me

You would always appear to me to be disappointed
Fighting many of the  demons of your past
This is why God had placed me into your life to begin
All you did was complain, yell and scream to no end

When you were down in your life I always came to share
Therefore you thought you knew that I would always be there

You had to know I was a blessing sent to you with two doves
God’s message to me was to show you again how to love
You did not think for one moment what was sent to you
For playing with your demons was all you knew

Now you’re lonely, bitter, evil and even hateful too
Casting stones for no reason to make you feel good
To no avail will you ever get what you may want out of life
Just for that selfish personality called misunderstood

Excuse after excuse will  never get you nowhere
Making haste out of waste is also just as bad
Had you realized what you had from the very start
You could have had a beautiful love, oh what an art

One should never take a true love given for granted
Thinking you must prove an upper hand
For in this life promises get broken each and everyday
So you must understand that life can deal you a bad hand

Mending  your wicked ways is always best for you
If life lessons hasn’t shown you this as of yet
All you must do to make a better way in your heart is:
You must redeem the evil behavior that you invest

When you were down in your life, I always came to share
Therefore you thought you knew that I would always be there
You must show appreciation, in return for the best love of all
If not, well then obviously this is not your call

I Always Came To Share

For I Am a Queen

For I am A Queen I walk with confidence and I never waiver, I love with my true heart, I oh so savor

In history we always talk about his story
In herstory it is time we talk about her story

For I am A Queen

I walk with confidence and I never waiver
I love with my true heart, I oh so savor
You will not always see me, for I am Royal
Proper, clean, strong, and witty, for I am Loyal
For I am a Queen

You can bet your bottom dollar
When a queen strolls into a  room, all will holler
I give the best a hierarchy can give
Spreading love, joy, peace, and a brighter way to live
For I am a Queen

I put my faith in front of all that I do
What matters most, I put forth an effort to show you
I lead by the challenges, in hearts I save
I give it up to the most highest one, who said I was not a slave
For I am a Queen

I show by example, what a Queen can and will do
She will put on her crown with a power to secure you
I am a Queen from birth, I am a Queen from the planet earth
You cannot measure me by lengths or girths
For I am a Queen

When I rip the runways of this life I want you all to know
I have been put here with a purpose to give you all the low
My purpose is loud and clear remember me
My impact is to let you know confidence is key
For I am a Queen

A Nature Course

A Nature Course

Like the sparkle of spring water
Like the ray of sun
Like the motion of the ocean
Like the whistle of wind
Like the gusting of sand
Like the smell of air
Like the wet of rain
Like the creatures of nature
Like the beauty of flower
Like it all for nature is on a steady course

Taste of spring water
Energy of sun
Coolness of ocean
Sound of wind
Color of sand
Crisp of air
Moisture of rain
Creatures of  land
Bloom of flower
Nature is on a changing course

Liquidity in spring water dried
UV  in sun burned
Force in oceans flooding
Chill in winds freezing
Grit in sand stormed
Breath of air polluted
Rise of rain drowning
Bud of flower wilted
Creatures of nature demise
Nature took a turn for the worse of course

Tonight

Tonight

Standing in the middle of a meadow one night
Flaunting through the temples of her mind
Finding all her feelings of a loving heart
Tonight she felt a thrill to excite

Walking in the pathway of a circle
Feeling such a sense of the divine
Detecting such a shiver from his warm embrace
Tonight she felt tingles up her spine

She knew that love held a key to keep it true all the time
She did not hold back her feeling for destiny to pursue
While taking in a breathe of that nighttime fresh air
Tonight she thought. love with him would come true

She started flirting with a hug and then a long kiss too
Her beautiful smile was also just fine
She said let us take a closer walk with the most of high above
Tonight she realized that she was in love

While they were looking so deep into each other’s eyes
Reaping with a passion to the core
For when they took a look  into each other’s eyes again
Tonight they rose with the stars above

Singing all the love songs that remind her of him
Reminiscing on that hug and kiss that night
She climbed into her bed feeling oh so blue
Tonight is when he told her goodbye

He told her about that night, for he did not know what he was to expect
For it was her, who told him to meet her in the meadow
He also told her that he had lost his total respect
Tonight he felt a feeling to reject

She knew that if his love just hit her once this time
She may not ever get to feel that feeling again
For going further than she should have ever gone
Tonight left her no more than a sin

She felt she should not have let him into her heart so deep
Regretful before he, she was doing just fine
She thought time would reveal and his love could turn real
Tonight she keeps praying to heal

Right then she had to realize she made a big mistake
By thinking everything would turn out alright
She began to think so hard of how could this be love
To have lead him and laid him in a meadow for one night

She was only thinking selfishly of what she wanted
She did not leave him anything to seek to be desired
She prayed for God to help her shed some light on this
Tonight God answered with his loving truthful light
Tonight God revealed to her that it was fornicated bliss

She keeps hoping what they did, was not the only reason why
When he told her, this would be the last time
She had never felt so sad a feeling like this before
Tonight God she asked oh Lord, oh please make it right

Tonight

We Are Creatures of Nature

We Are Creatures of Nature

We are creatures of nature
We must do what God said to do
We need to clean this land
We got to come together
One by one and hand by hand

We are creatures of nature
We need to fix what we can
We need more love and togetherness
We know of the old wise man

We are creatures of nature
We must do better for fellow man
We must join together one by one
We have to do this hand in hand

We are creatures of nature
Let us not reap what we sow
We need to sow seeds together
For our green earth to continue to grow

We are creatures of nature
We were put all over this land
It takes all of us to do what’s right
So we can follow God’s plan

We are creatures of nature
However we choose
Now if we don’t clean up God’s earth
We the people will only loose

We are creatures of nature
No need to explain
We are all put here for a purpose
To live in harmony, without the pain

We are creatures of nature
We just cannot let it be
We have choices in life
To make it all worth it for you and me

We are creatures of nature
We must love it too
For if the ground we walk on is not cleaned up
We will end up in doom

We are creatures of nature
We must do what’s right
We have got to lift each other up in prayer
We must save each other’s lives

We are creatures of nature
We know our Father loves us so
We got to give it all up to God
We must now bow our heads and nod
Amen

Bitter or Better

Bitter or Better

Bitter holds an institution of motions to blame
Bitter is an ugly truth of hiding in shame
Bitter is a behavior always misunderstood
Bitter leaves one tossing and turning, mostly up to no good
Bitter is the litter of the not so kind
Bitter will leave one lost and hard to find
Bitter……lost

Better is key to turn one around
Better will melt bitter down to the ground
Better will keep all safe, loved and warm
Better exudes energy to wither any storm
Better feels good, I know you all agree
Better look at the world to see what I see
Better……found

Do not waste your time on being Bitter
Give most your time to being Better

Family Tree

Family Tree

We were all created from a tiny little seed
To find out who we are and who we be
God created the heaven and the earth you see
Man nestled with woman then here came you and me
We all are one coming from the same family tree

We all celebrate life born on to this earth
Nine months of life beginning from the seed to the birth
Now when one seed grows to two, three or four
We know that each seed can bloom into a lot more
Sacred and blessed are we to be
Pruned in all seasons from the same family tree

Through fathers and mothers, be it sisters or be it brothers
Cousins, aunts and uncles, grandfathers and grandmothers
Life is being created over and over, evolving around that same seed
Keep this in mind, simply deep and well rooted, we continue to breed
Growing a family larger by the degree
We all are one coming from the same family tree
