These are a few poems from my book, of Love, Pain, Strength, Dreams, Life

An Angel

One day I awaken and saw the sun,
it was shining so bright and sky so blue
for an early morning so new.
However, it was not the sun, it was my heart
it was full of love, desire and excitement
I looked in the mirror and there was a glow
a glow from which I never seen before.
I reached to stretch from a feeling so odd,
a feeling of a presence I could not recognize.
As I stretched I looked, looked in the mirror,
there were wings behind me, which lighten the room.
While, I stood there looking I realized the mood,
I was an Angel...

 

No Different

I sat and watched how people looked
at other people, who may have been less fortunate than the,
but just because that person has no home,
does not mean you are better than he is.
You may have a home to sleep at night,
and he may have a hole to sleep for the night,
still does not mean you are better than he is.
He may rumble through garbage to feed himself,
and you go home and cook dinner for the night,
still don’t mean you are better than he is.
You may have a job you work to be paid,
and he may collect bottles to be paid,
he may even beg, just to have a nickel or two.
Who is to say you are better than he is.
He is a man, and you say you are too,
so why not help if you feel you are better than he is.

 

Unique I am

Someone once said to me

That I would never be on there level,

They were wrong.

You see I am a live I am free,

I am unique in my own way.

Just because you may perceive to be classy,

Materialistically with an attitude,

Does not mean you are.

I have my classiness from the heart,

Therefore, it is real, unlike a dream.

I like her style,

He says, but her style is false,

Why do you admire a phony hype?

A natural real down to earth style

Is the true key

Fronting is not my game

Being real is what I am.

My heart is like a diamond,

Its fine, shining, see the rainbow

It is forever,

When cut into pieces,

Cannot put back together

Therefore, my style is unique

It only comes in a few shapes, and sizes.

 

Loving you

When you talk to me, I feel your benevolence,

Your softness of masculinity

When you hold me, it feels warm,

I feel safe; I feel secure.

When you kiss me, I feel a warm softness,

With a profuse, desire of passion.

When you make love to me, I want to say

How you make me feel, but the words are tedious,

Therefore, you leave me speechless,

Not knowing what to say,

Except an enchanting abundance

Of delectable soft sounds,

So I just bask myself in the delightful,

Satisfying feeling, you leave me with,

Wanting more and more,

This brings me closer to you, therefore,

I have no reason to lose my way

Because you are all I ever needed in my life;

You are my dream man,

Which I have been yearning,

Did not know how to locate you,

We found each other on a cordial October night

Since then the indicator been fixed on green,

At a traffic light,

I do not want to stop,

I do not want to crash,

I just want to keep going,

See how exquisite our love can truly be.

 

 

 

 

I am who I am

Some will say, I am the MOON
how they see me is not all true .
Alternately, I am the SUN
rising in the sky on a clear summer day.
Only to brighten so you can feel my mood
never to let anyone be so cruel.
Most of all,
it isn't hard to say ever so sweet and full of play,
roaming and reaching to catch the sky...
hoping and praying to keep hope alive.
Anyone will see that I am but...
Meek
Needless to say, take me as you see fit,
for GOD,
I only care to satisfy my need.
