A Life in Rap Gallivanting, and Bar hopping. Living it up, and Hotel bopping. Race with the Joneses, […]
Long ago, in the hood,Way back in the day, The streets were all empty,And the city was gray. Anger […]

You are a melody,A soft pitter patter,A gentle good night,Causing dark thoughts to scatter.You are a symphony,A marching […]
Standing at a distance, As the crowd wails, Arguing over scraps, The outsider watches. Quietly dreaming, Anticipating, […]
Whatever goes up, will surely come down;
Like a boomerang, it just all goes around.
You get what you give, or reap what you sow;
If hate’s what you plant, then hate’s what will grow.
If you want to see change; if love’s what you thirst,
Be bold with your kindness…
Dare to go first.
Chaotic workday— a scuffle with friends,
Five o’clock traffic— the stress never ends,
Pressure to do well— fearing failure, too,
Stuck in a pattern— afraid of what’s new,
Plan for retirement— look forward to rest,
Where children once played— is now empty nest,
Dating disasters— a marriage from hell,
Lack of investments— there’s nothing to sell,
No regrets linger— My head’s not for rent,
All of these moments— are evanescent,
March forward, full steam— toward what is unseen,
Faith is eternal— I’m living the dream.
His appearance stirred up anger,
Seeds of hatred had been sewn.
Antipathy grew heavy,
I began tumbling,
From my throne.
There I discovered,
Had been my own!

We’re going out in public,
So please put on your mask.
Say “I’m fine” and “thank you,”
If anyone should ask.
I know your thoughts run rampant,
You want to share them all,
But these are not the places;
The grocery store, or mall.
Wait until you’re all alone,
And type them with your hand.
Share them on the blog instead,
Where people understand.

My dreams are vivid, they’re bold and alive.
The colors run deep, as they spin and they jive.
Often they fade, to black, and to white,
Others appear in magnificent light.
Sometimes in shadows, or a dark silhouette,
They wait as I cling to the fear of regret.
One dream can splinter, into two, even three,
I’ll never stop dreaming of all I can be.
Far beneath the jagged cliff … Where men are seldom seen, A dilapidated shack … Lies in the […]
Lips, rest firmly on the trigger- Blistered by thoughts, simmering there. Frustration, igniting the fuse- Fires words as […]

Everything is spinning, And things are upside down. Do my eyes deceive me? Or are crazies running ’round? […]
Quietly I slip away Into the black and white. Cautiously Sparking palettes Waiting for colors to ignite. Weekend […]

A winter’s freeze,
The sky is painted gray.
And twinkling lights,
The perfect holiday.
