Fence

To think upon the night

The fence along the field

Thoughts blocked by a gate

Vanquishing all that enter

Like a barrier of power

To lose control is not a curse

Internal reflections uphold

With heaving hearts conjure

Another world to open

Taking flight in the darkness

Mending the torn threads

Relying on nothing but one self

To flee from the tampered fence

Mind tricks unbeknownst

Leverage no longer there

One must find the way

Escaping the wrath within

Nearly falling from the cliff

A brink towards insanity

But what is life without 

A fence that cannot be broken

Melanin

You are not just your melanin

You are somebody

Beauty in the vast seas

Overcoming obstacles

Courage and strength 

Not just melanin

You are more than that

Hearts beat the same

Blood as bold

Never be ashamed

To own your melanin

Embrace that part of you

Show the world you are more

More than the melanin you wear

Honor your people

With love and fierceness

You are needed too

You have a purpose

Kiss your children goodnight

Tell them they are

More than their melanin

 

Published

Hello my fellow writers/readers! I am so excited to announce as of the other day I published my very first book of poetry. It includes all the poems many of you have been able to view on the site. With that said I have dedicated the entirety of it to all victims and survivors of abuse. This is very important to me and eventually I hope to donate partial proceeds from my revenue after the publishing company takes their percentage. Thank you all so much for any support!

Drift

Another plane of existence

The here and now

The beginning the end

Evolves in a time not alive

In a place between life and death

Our souls pained

Yet alive from endurance

Alive from love

From anything unfathomable

When did we start

In this world to be

There is something more

Farther than we see

Unexplainable beyond time itself

Yet time is that which is taken for granted

As it drifts further away

All that’s left are memories

Mysteries

Stealthy conscious moving slowly

All paths knowingly winding

Defeat inevitable with stride

Fighting the turmoil yet graceful

Soul abiding time that’s still

To find the way through the abyss

Arms reach to bring the light

Blooming from a field of mystery

Sanctity

Cautiously adverting the triumphs of life

Walking like a fragile shell

Revolting the corruption around our being

Standing ever so tall with emotion

One could use a breath of life

A sanctity as gravity pulls us closer to the edge

Dissident to the doom that lurks

Within ourselves we can build

An everlasting shell of resilience

A sanctity of love

Is There

Is there a place

Within existence

To shed the suffering evil places upon us

A remote world in a distance of love

Of nothing more than differences but love

Not perfection

Is there

Can this world be forgotten to start anew

Like the wrinkling of skin as we age

Like a freckle a speck of emotion

Is there

Or am I stuck in my own fantasy land

As I was told as a child

Wake up

It’s not like the movies

This is the real world

Is there a world less like this real world

A world of peace, love, protection for the vulnerable

Or are we forever cursed 

To be part of a world so evil

The good can’t seem to drown out the bad anymore

Is there ever going to be a place 

Where humans can exist

Is there a home for all of us

Planet Love

Covers

We blanket ourselves

Many layers of mysteries

Only revealing what we choose to reveal

Protecting our beings 

Judged nonetheless by those who don’t understand

Do we owe it to them or ourselves

To explain our past our stories

Just to be that book with pages

To be explored without judgement

Covers to be delicately opened

Our choice our time

Careful to not tear the page

Nor to judge a book by its cover

Read thoroughly

As you would ask the same

Wholly with heart

Visions

My eyes they see

The condescending reality 

Perpetuating the darkest of night

My eyes they feel

Through them various energy

Spectrums of self destruction 

Prevalent not hidden

Despite the motion and pull

One seeks outside

The universe has visions

Not so endearing

Do we see around us

Visions despaired

Can we see more 

To mend this place 

Called earth

Be Brave

Difference of the heart

Facing the world as your own

Importance of values and life

Reminiscent of dreams we once had

Those may still continue

In other ways we are shown

Within ourselves

No matter the cruelness of some

The change and impact we have

Depends on us on how in tune we are

With the world

With ourselves

No matter the lack thereof from others

In the end there are still some of us

Don’t let what others think rule you

Your heart will show in what you do

So be brave
