A Poem for Progress

If I wrote the best poem in the world I would dry the tears on the silent neglected streets where lamposts blink the sounds of destruction, and in the eyes of poverty I would stare into each child’s vision and inpire in them the hope, strength and victory of success. I would wake up drug […]

On the inside

Sometimes I hate when I’m supposed to love. I stare off into cluttered windows watching the eyes of my heart dilate into fragments of distance loudly shattering in the destination of this world unhealed.

Tears Don't cry

Young girl, twenty-two years of age sits on a sidewalk curb all  alone.

Letter to love

written as I think of you (for Dominic Basile-Vaughan)     Dear Love, You were delivered to me through the gentleness of his eyes.  You were the warm tenderness – the healing I needed four years ago as my tears flowed silently on the heels of a sudden lost.   You came to me through […]

Elm city

Dangerous minds expressed, curbs of dreams suppressed on streets of criminality where a child’s eyes reflect the fatality of poverty’s disguise.   But, within the shadowed streets of Elm City, there is hope, there is always hope when a community stands up and takes pride in the education of future generations   there is always […]

For some, the ways of the world keeps us grounded, rounded and content with our surroundings and for others, the ways of the world takes us places and introduces us to new faces of possibility – it guides us to reach new foundations where we make a difference   in the lives we touch, the […]
