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.

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

Insecurities And Imperfections

Insecurities And Imperfections

Nature’s purity, reflect one’s insecurities and imperfections
loveliness, loneliness, peacefulness, and happiness

Accept one’s insecurities, and imperfections
For that’s who you be

Acknowledge one’s insecurities and imperfections
To allow nature to enhance the beauty for the naked eye to see

This is more than a message for one to feel free
Let this be a message for one to be all you can be

With Insecurities and imperfections
