Do it AFRAID

  Do it afraid. No, not with shame. Shame and fear? No, not the same. Insane or lame; Care not for blames, Go, try, and try some more. For day after day, Sweat drops will give way And life will pave its path For the shamelessly fearful Who though trembling Take thoughtful steps, and go [...]

She’ll call him father!

Binta will call him father! The man who smeared her skin With blood from her newborn innocence That is her reality Her people's cross to bear So we observe with mouths agape But return to status quo. No! Life is no longer the same, Not for Binta and her peers Life is not the same, [...]

Pete and his bride

Pete thought life was better, Better on the other side So he dragged her up so far, Far west a million miles Weary from the ragged journey, One day his soul gave way Under a stranger's watch, but hers, but hers did stay Many nights passed And out in the wild, She fell again but [...]

Eyes that see

Tidal waves clasping the air; Surfer's light blown by delight Flicks of flare, then the fury of fear Passions flee and eyes take flight... Yet I'm the evening breeze, The [...]

Let the Sun remind you 

I sat in a chair, head down, eyes shut; motionless. I was at my rope's end. Unable to think a thought, to cry or be sad. Unable to feel a thing, to smile or to laugh. Had felt all the emotions I know. Been happy, sad, anxious, angry... But this moment was different. I just [...]

Days Like This

There are days like this Days in which you smile A thousand smiles and counting   And such days as this Will be the daily kind To hearts that won't live doubting   They see each skipping and each beat As rhyme for praise and dancing  

A Moment In Time

Clung to the black iron railings were a set of thickly layered wrinkles, old ragged pair of hands. Behind it was a dull set of eyes, frail looking head of hair, and a stature screaming age. Wondering how a gate mounted to bar unapproved entry should be manned by such a tired looking figure, I [...]
