This is dedicated to a dear dear friend Dr. Melvia Miller (on the left), a native of Muncie IN who just lost her mother (see poem "Elizabeth's Eyes").

Melvia is a wonderful author who knows exactly where I stand, and knows that when it comes to Truth--no matter how unpopular-- Truth will always have a fan club. Her book "Middletown Roots" tells the straight up truth about the backwardness of Muncie Indiana, and why so many people of color often vacate before they suffocate in the quagmire of uninclusive stagnation.

Hats off to you my sistah Melvia. May God bless you richly in your purpose, and may you find peace and solace in the days ahead.
blessin's, c.

together we can
change the way
the world sees shades of

we take a stand
and hold a hand
when no one else will

we leap past fears
and doubters' jeers
because it really

regardless of
the critics' sneers
our hopes remain

and still we find
that Truth needs time
to heal all broken

for we will always
pen the words of sense
for those who'll
hear it

tho' days are short
we can't resort
to sentiments of

for when a fool
believes false lies
those lies
become their language

and so we'll script
on glistening wings
'til bound are free from

for with persistence
freedom flies
and celebrates
true homage

Hopefully one day soon all this nonsense will end, and everyone will finally realize this planet belongs to ALL of US, and it is the only one we got! Instead of trying to rip it and each other apart, letís keep moving forward to ensure there is still something remaining for OUR children and GRANDCHILDREN!!! Outstanding work! Thanks for sharing it.

A poem, "not your average color'd chics" sings its message.

As long as we ignore that we are Humans, this planet will be the planet of Mammon, and His vices will be ours.

Striking writing, Poet.

Never rest Your pen.

It is not easy to erase prejudice. Hell cynth'ya. We can't even educated some of the bigoted writers that post here at AD. In fact their comments are greated with great and wonderful poetry. When they really are some stupid bastards. They make me want to "puke and vomit." You would think that when someone read a poet of a base
nature berating a 'stupid mexican, etc.' They would give the poet a wide birth. But they don't. Most are buzy like me playing their romance games to intervene. God bless you. Bill

Bondage is, more often than not, a state of mind. The "language of a fool" stanza is great. Enjoyed.
