I Tried

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 […]

Mamas-boy

Son, I have but a few words for you and it is only going to take a few minutes of your time – Boy as I look down upon you from the heavens of my new journey’s horizon, I can still feel the joyful pain from the day I released you into this world.  The […]

I Define

Reflets IV

There have been those who told me where I’ve been and where I have yet to go but I had to look down within the bosom of soul and let them know that I define my own destination as only my feet have had to walk the paths of self education searching and finding the […]

Still Waters

Still waters

I have always had a fear of drowning, therefore I float.  I flow with the currents that take me upstream and empties me in the mouth of life’s ocean; waves silently drift and the ripples sing the harmony of my being. But when the waters rise, I sink gasping for air. Lungs suffocate with fear, […]

Poem cry

There is no crying in poetry because poems don’t cry for sympathy/they cry to expose the human emotion of translation and they cry to ignite the fuel of connection . I have had many tears in this life; many tears I’ve found again in the fragrance of summer’s past but I will not share these […]

Of Dreams

Of-Dreams

When I was younger I used to sit on the side of cobblestone curbs and dream I had cool dreams and jazzy dreams; I had the kind of dreams that made my mind sway and the kind of dreams that took me away to another day where I was someone with a name I had […]

These Words

These words

Sitting here thinking, reminiscing about how back then the world seemed cruel and life through my eyes was filled with rules – I was a young child, age of five and so newly alive, taught early the streets as a source to survive I write these words so glad I’m alive and as I look […]

Sometimes I look in my own eyes and see the definition of a man who just wants to live his life without the judgment and sacrifice of ignorant minds trying to break him down and hateful words that try to fade his dreams and tear apart his soul all the way to the seams; in […]

Waiting

waiting

I didn’t recognize the world anyone on that late March afternoon; a light breeze attempted to kiss my cheek but the pain inside me ignored nature’s opportunity to cuddle with my life.  The sun’s smooth radiance barely blinded my eyes as I drove to find out what was wrong with me and in that moment, […]

Everything Around Me

Everything around me

I’ve sat here long enough watching the flame of this scented candle of life burn slowly whilst melting time into the wax of loss. As I sit here exploring everything around me, I find the appreciation in everything I see; It is the fragrance of love that electrifies the air I breathe that keeps me […]
