any time now ,

behold listen to what is being told

Not taking no detours
I've faced my pain
I'm not going down...
that path again.
A friend of 5 years...
I care about,
said he doesn't want friends
who don't put out.
I'd made it clear...
he was just a friend...
didn't know that...
could cause it's end.
15 years I called him friend...
and then he made his call,
I told him that I couldn't play...
he hasn't been back at all.
My best friend of all for 7… Continue

Last night I enjoyed a night of fun and games at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. United Methodist Church, 5114 Windsor Mill Road and Forest Park Avenue in Baltmore, Maryland!
This community event was a great success bringing families and youth from the community into the church for some good food and great games. There was even an opportunity for everyone to visit the clothes closet and choose donated clothes, jewelry, magazines, toiletries, etc. for FREE! It was a blessing to see so… Continue

Jst lke You
I have been degraded by society,
Cause o what I am.
I have to work at everything I do,
Cause I'm not taken seriously.
I have been labeled.
Cause they are too ignorant to know me.
I have to be stubborn,
Cause the nice game doesn't work for me.
I have to be cautious,
Cause the nice game doesn't work for me.
I have to be cautious.
Cause nothing is a free ride.
So remember this, my friend.
I may be paled… Continue

There you are, sitting by your computer, staring at a blank page. Your creative mind seems to have gone on vacation leaving your body behind. Now why is that?

I've been busy at work on a Novel.
Soon, I'm going to post PART FOUR of my book.
What I'd love, is to hear from any peeps who would like to give the Manuscript a once over
and provide a bit of criticism & any other thoughts you may have.
Look for an announcement on my Poetry Blog [NEW POEMS],
Thanks a bunch!

We’ve all experienced some degree of pain in our lives and we’ve dealt with it in the best way we knew how to at the time.
Pain has a purpose, in the body, its purpose is to let us know that there is a problem that needs attention. In the emotional body, it presents for the same purpose but may be a little harder to see as we haven’t been accustomed to relating events and circumstances in our everyday life as pain in our emotional body that needs our attention.
The degree of… Continue

The place they call Heaven…
They say is out there…
Beyond the stars…
Past our fear.
But how can that be…
When we are the divine…
If it’s not within,
How can one shine?
Could it be true?
It’s a state of mind…
That surpasses our darkness…
Leaves us no longer blind.
If it were a dance…
A unity untold…
That lifted our spirits…
To illuminately unfold…
Our steps would be the journey…
Our touch would form the… Continue

How can I tell you the things that I see…
Without being thought of as mad,
My words fall short when I try to explain…
The experiences that I’ve had.
For all you see is flesh and blood…
You can’t relate at all…
To the perfect pattern and how it works…
Through both rise and fall.
For if you ask for much you must be prepared…
To suffer the opposite extreme…
To give it all and know the cost…
Before you can live your dream.
The pendulum… Continue
