A message

Fabricated reality

muted dreams

mouth sewed with

black thread

so caught up in routine

you’re dead

Doubt the assassin

Capped potential

in the masses

Talent transcends

social classes.

Take ownership

break the social

script

because life goes by

too quick

just flow with it

Chase your destiny

defeat monotony

fulfill your purpose

be a whole person

awaken

in this life

not the next

breathe

give it your best.

Duet

If hearts

could sing

it would sound

like her

seamlessly going

through the highs

and lows

velvet sound

notes like tear

drops, but in

command

bouncing on

the scale

speaking a language

you can’t understand

universal love

whispers that

break glass

cries that fill

the blackholes

of the universe.

But maybe

its like his

pain and strain

yet beautifully

dancing in the rain

truth, every emotion

it’s own hue

reflection of where

your thoughts roam

warm home

tenderness of the soul

 

Preach

Dedicated to all my fellow teachers, who work hard. Don’t get recognized as they should and live in an era where we face constant scrutiny. We fight the good fight. Justice for the Newark 7!!

 

Teach to reach new heights

Minds ignited, powerful

strength, patience, wisdom

Heaven

My cry into

the world, my

vision to leave it

better than before.

People paint

with the color of

their dreams.

things are

what they seem

Everyone living in

harmony

Love

descending from

the trees

Streets lined,

with mobile libraries.

Knowledge sought

everything free

 

And poetry

poetry

poetry

sheet music

to every scene.

Restored

Intuned with

the world

soul ready

to soar

 

No longer

walking the

tight rope

feet grounded

 

Signs like

constellation stars

map to destiny

to be revealed

 

 

Thoughts clear

anticipating a

bright future

that’s near
