Life is like a melodious song waiting to be played or sung; Be it an elegy, Be it a lullaby, Sad or Happy, its all a melody Its lyrics are written per line On the pages of history over time; In our deeds and actions, It shows forth in our reactions Choose to be an agent of good, Break down the walls of pride and prejudice; Put smiles in all faces around your hood Think equality, stand for justice; Avoid conflicts and all acts of viol...

Skin as brown as dust They look at you They judge you Bang Bang They shoot you down Skin the color of dark chocolate Stripped of name Stripped of culture Stripped of freedom Stripped of justice A child still yet to become an adult Victimized and criminalized Shot down by vigilantes Shot down by law enforcement Guilty by way of courts Chained chocolate child No protection from the law No protection in the hood...

Million of ideas cook up in our mental stoves Minute by minute our minds travel miles away If wishes were horses, beggars might ride Messages get lost in the noise The tide falls and rises The ocean tongue licks the seashore. The tail of the lion wiggles joyfully at the prey The tune of the music pours fragrance on the soul We follow a path while limitless trail exist We fiddle with the wind, rather than generate a fortune from it We feel comfort...

This week im doing something a bit different, I'm going to write a poem, I decided to write a poem because I see a lot of articles and thought this would be contrasting. Is smoking fair? You light a cigarette And your lungs cry out Is smoking fair? You breathe in the cigarette While her parents cry out She's hooked up to a breathing machine Is smoking fair? You exhale the smoke She struggles She cant breathe Her lungs collap...

Poppies Humanity is a field of poppies. Tepid summers pluck seedlings and rest them in sodden plains. Each bursts roots thrusting into soil of eons past. Folding, bending, twisting and contorting… Running together like schoolchildren in the village None have foreseen the winter to come. Frigid winds strike with savage intentions. Acrid, adverse, and ablaze in spite… At first the seedlings hold together, but soon they desert one another. Spring arri...

Poetry is a powerful form of communication and expression. In fact, the very foundation of poetry is based on emotion and sentiment which seeks to make itself universal in its plight, understood by everyone. If there is one thing that every person in every generation can understand, it is war. I decided to use poetry to convey the thoughts of the greats about war. Enjoy! Nefarious War--Li Po (c. 750) Last year we fought by the head-stream of the So-Kan, This year we are fight...
