MY SON

Folder: 
poems
I saw you just two days before,
We talked a few minutes now I wish it was more,
And when we said good bye,
I never knew it would be the last time,
You left this world way to soon,
I found out the next day around noon,
That at four AM you had passed,
I would have tried to help if you would have just asked,
But instead you left this world all alone,
You never even called my phone,
Every day I think maybe it is a dream,
But it is not and everthing is as it seems,
It has been more days than I care to know,
I was not prepared to just let you go,
My world will never be the same,
Every day I want to call out your name,
Somehow I must say goodbye,
Till we meet again in the place above the sky.

Fishers of Men

Rise,

live

Fly

 

Don't fall,

dont sink

 

Love,

care,

help

 

Truth,

suffering,

 

Take my hand,

don't die 

 

Dont fall,

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Matthew 4:19-21 King James Version (KJV)

19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men

Hell is Real

Dread

of abyss

 

Earth opened up;

the living dead

 

Many go there

to suffer

 

Bodies on top of 

bodies

 

Lost hopes and

dreams

 

A place of 

despair

 

The soul sinks

into the earth

 

Departing from the corpse,

down into the catacombs

 

Down through the darkened

caverns

 

Into the furnace,

into the fire

 

They burn

They suffer

They cry

They die

 

No sleep

No peace

No relief

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Mark 9:48 King James Version (KJV)

48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Those Who Do Not Shine

I am a

man

 

Born into a world 

of freaks 

 

I can see 

I can hear 

What is wrong with this

world

 

I see those who 

do not shine 

Trapped in the Spiders

web

 

I know my enemies

I know the darkness

 

Eyes are the window to the soul

and some are dead

 

But can they be brought back to 

life?

 

Can they shine

again?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Ephesians 5:11-15 New International Version (NIV)

11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,

Belmont: The Vampire Slayer

Vampire

heres your stake

 

Time to die

you snake

 

In your heart so 

dark

 

End of a miserable

life

 

Face the light

face the truth

 

Look into the sun

feel the heat burn the flesh

 

You cannot evade

your fate

 

Not this time

you snake

 

Time to die

and go to hell

 

Where you belong

Virus of Vampires

Polluted with incompatible

blood

 

Another race

has been invented

 

To take over

like a virus

 

Light they can't

stand

 

They retreat into

caves like bats

 

Night their

day

 

Evil for 

good

 

Death their

life

 

Dead souls

 

Insanity wreaks its

havoc in their minds

 

Downward spiral into

hell

 

Eyes that do not see

ears that do not hear

  

The truth not found

in their hearts

 

No love,

hate pure

 

worshipping their

graves

 

Broken stones

of idols

 

Temples of desolation

 

Abomination by choice

 

No fruit to bear,

No eyes to see

 

Ears can only recieve

the lies they speak

 

Sensory deprivation

of facts

 

Denial and ignorance

of God

 

Desolate of the 

holy spirit

 

Devoid of truth

 

Worshipping the animal

dying like dogs

 

Rotting in the grave

Sealed beneath the earth

 

Worms retreat below

to their new home

 

Worms cannot

ascend

 

Decompose,

degenerate

 

Decay 

 

Spiritual Suicide

Being weak and not being

able to handle the truth

 

You find comfort in lies instead,

turning to the darkness;

committing spiritual suicide

 

Becoming an agent of evil,

spreading the agenda of lies,

swarming rotten meat iikes flies,

 

There is no good left,

no sign of light,

wrongs for right

 

Clock is ticking,

Reaper is coming

to collect

 

Anxiety of death,

prolong the inevitable

but all in vain

 

Already dead,

already buried in the tomb,

your soul ripped from your corpse

 

Tormented by your "friends",

voices take over your mind,

possessed by your "Friends"

 

You will never see the light,

eyes blinded;

tomb opened,

 

Sealed in the walls,

sealed in the book,

stamped like a tramp.

 

A bitch,

a dog,

a coward,

a slave.

 

Too old

Too old..

 

No wrinkles just sagging skin. Loose strands of black hair shuffle between my thighs why? Because I’m too old. Elbow skin tough, rugged soul like wrangler jeans but with impromptu feelings of unsatisfactory thoughts as I scan my teacher I realize, I ain’t shit my ass is too old. Start over and get your life is a scream of tantrum of my inner Tamar who is holding up a force field shield to protect my heart. My heart, why is it so fragile with feelings and emotions because my ass is old!. My gut is not as strong so I can’t tolerate too much ignorance at one time why? Because my ass is old. 

 

Trying to figure out what the hell Maya Angelou be talking about in her poems was as baffling as to watch a slain gang member funeral on live tv. Praise and acknowledge me now, not when I can’t see you coming because my ass is old. Old is a proxy label of degrading your youth to a uncertainty of confusion and accepting the demise to understand and accept your time is dwindling.  

 

iPad in hand with numb fingertips trying to get your point across to a room of undeveloped ovaries is a procrastination of post it’s googling life but not understanding it. Demonstrating your true self within your herd community protects you until a virus of negativity slowly creeps in and infects us all. I can’t live your world, I can’t wait for you to formulate the confusion that sits in the palm of your hand I am too old and set in my ways. 

 

Waist training spirits with a Herbalife spark is motivation to some but it’s my enemy. Why because I’m old. I’m so old that my cursive writing is reverting to pre school chicken scratch before my fingertips. My oldness have taken over my spirt and is arguing me down that Air Jordan’s at my age is a reach for acceptance within my urban playground. 

 

My youth left me at the age of 21 when I birthed my first son. I knew I was gonna be old like right now. I cried at the sight of my abdomen looking like a balled up trash bag,I screamed when my breast looked beat up, I yelled when my hair was shedding and my teeth was hurting due to this oversized cocoon I just hatched. 

 

Now that’s old ass hell, when you consider your uterus as an cocoon. 

 

Favorite

Sometimes when I'm lonely I like to go through my old journals.


I have a nasty habit of starting one when they're still one beside my bed only half finished. I like to read the half-completed thoughts and the half articulated ideas. I like the still sleep torn dreams that I haven't gotten around to editing yet.


They read like novels with no conclusion. Sometimes I get the urge to finish them. Sometimes there seems to be no proper way to end them.
I was going through an old Journal that had gotten on my 18th birthday. I had forgotten that my mother used this journal as a guest book at my party. At first it was uplifting reading all these messages that my family had given me years ago and knowing that at least most of them were still in my life.


Then I came across one that I probably should not have read. This message talked about a love that we shared, a friendship like no other. He talks like he was home, like it was comfortable casual. Like his words had no more weight to them then discussing your day at the dinner table.


I, however, took these words to Heart more than words written by politicians are lawyers that have effect on the world. They hit me with more meaning than any decree or speech. And at the bottom almost like an afterthought he wrote "you're my favorite". You're my favorite.


Those words hit me like a sledgehammer to my gut making everything in my body clench as if waited for an attack. He said it as though it meant nothing, it was just a term of endearment. Favorite. Those words hit my skin like acid burning their terrible disgusting design into me.
I Was not his only, I was not his first, I was not his last. I was his favorite.


All the pain that he caused me all the sleepless nights years of self-hatred he gave to me with as much love and tenderness as he was capable. I meant more to him, I was his favorite. The worst by far was the realization that while I'm glad a motherfuker is dead, well I'm glad that I was not there for his last week's and not there to bury his corpse, I still felt the love and tenderness that he honestly meant.


No matter how much pain he caused me no matter how he distorted my view of my own self, I was still glad that he held me in such favor. I felt loved even as I did not love myself anymore. I had a friendship even though I despised him.


I hated myself, but I was his favorite
