A Place I used to call home

This poem is a memory This poem is about/a place I use to call my home; a place where this new silence I see was once the laughter of hope and pride. A place where my young feet use to run in the freedom winds of innocence but now as I look down this narrow […]

Travis Street Blues

  April 27, 2014  8:25 A.M.   The sun is only slightly shinning, but on this day my age has the brightest smile.  I’ve watched life grow and it has come a long way since my early days.   Back then, just a child, I use to celebrate laughter as an innocent melody of freedom, […]

One April Morning

One April Morning (The 36th Song) Written April 27th, 2012 10:31 A.M. A howling wind regurgitates through the reflection of soft sunlight that is peeking through the eyelids of my bedroom window. A gentle air whispers into my awakening as I rise to a new song. One April morning I experienced the magic of birth […]

Belonging

I’ve been sitting here singing now for thirty-five years/ listening to the music of my heart whistle through laughter, pain, happiness and tears. So as I toast the beginning of another song I stare through the journey of these eyes and reflect upon the times I struggled in this life just to belong.   The […]

To-Live-Again

To Live Again To progress one has to remember to live.   One night I sat alone listening to my past pain unhealed whining against the coldness of yesterday’s window.   It was a stuttering sound that startled the waves of silence that giggled amongst the hours of truth; a truth that whistled for time […]

1976

Written April 27th 2009 Thirty-three years ago I had no name, no dreams no emotion — they say I was just a ten pound bundle of joy pushing my way out of a sixteen year old womb. It is safe to say I don’t remember but the sting from being smacked on my naked little […]

Rebirth

Written April 27th 2008 To be born again is to release yesterday’s fears and rise from the recycled shell we call existence; it is the freedom to capture our own reemergence as we explore and face the unknown by redefining it into another year of knowledge; to be born again is our ability to rewind […]

unknown

There are times I stare out into the openness of a quiet world watching  my reflection cry. Sometimes I don’t feel my feelings are heard; sometimes I watch my own tears dry. If you really knew me, you would know my heart is the microphone of my emotional suffocation. I’ve once spoken with an empty […]

Written April 27th, 2013 from the thoughts that arrived at 5:35 A.M   Eyes wide open inside the 37th dream of a lifetime,   I am breathing —   and as I lay within these minutes, the very minutes I breathed inside the bosom of my mother’s arms and started to recognize a world ready […]

I Tried

Sometimes I feel I’ve tried too hard– to be everything other than me/I stare in mirrors waiting for echoes to reveal the eyes of a man who others aren’t afraid to see but the voice of my reflection speaks back at me with a dialect of a defined soul who has struggled through the crutch […]
