Come on a fantastic voyage in the backwaters of my mind.

Allow me to present easily the two coolest kids of this week (Video)


These young men have figured out what a lot of adults have not: DO YOU! Don’t allow anyone to steal your joy. Don’t allow anyone to put you in their box. Freedom comes from within. So if your not free, you only have yourself to blame.

Reflections


So…

What do you see

When you look at me

Why does my visage

Cause

So much despair

Is it my cocoa brown skin

My kinky hair

Do you think it causes

Tangled thoughts

That leaves your stomach in knots

What makes me suspicious

When i am just walking and loving

Or enjoying myself

Laughing and Talking

Why is it 

That it’s normal for you

To do the same shit

I got to be combative

But you are just assertive

I am rude

But you are just blunt

I got to have a gun

To kill

But your AK is for the hunt

up in the hills

I must be a crook

So that you can be a savior

I really don’t

Dig your flavor

So…

What do you really see

when you see me

My true essence

or a reflection of you.

 

All For My Love


Silence

Not even a gasp

Chasing

A pinpoint of light

Away

From love I hide

Truth

Dreams

Unrealized potential must be met

Fluttering

In a changeable breeze

Barely

Recognizable to my heart

Breathing

All

Is what I am giving

For

I honor my promises

My

Conscious conscience is clear

LOVE

Silence chasing away truth

Dreams fluttering

Barely breathing

All for my LOVE

LOVE?


nana

scrambled eggs, raisins, and fried hot dogs

that is love

pots of greens and pans of cornbread for months

that is love

open arms and a open home

that is love

showing vulnerability and strength

that is love

accepting what is and supporting what could be

that is love

passing mother with from long ago mothers

that is love

love has changed but love remains

that is love

Nana

that is love.

In honor of my mother in love who transitioned in 2011
