Can I get inside your mine
Drop a few lines
To show you I am not wasting your time
Who am I you ask
I’m just a brotha who appreciates a good thing when he sees one
And every man you turned down in here knows exactly
Where I’m coming from
What makes me...
Expressing my love and devotion shouldn’t have to come only on holidays
My feelings seem to increase as the days accumulate
I want to show my appreciation for you more then on Christmas, Valentines
And on birthday’s
So today I declare a New Holiday that we will...
I never knew how much I appreciated freedom
Until it was taken me
The crimes I've committed has brought me to a place that I rather not be
A day is nothing more then a day as I sit here rotting in this cell
Wishing someone would take me out of this world because this...
I want to Heal
I want to feel remorse for others I have wronged in the past
I want pessimistic thoughts of my once bleak future to vanish at last
I want to be able to lay my head down to rest
And have pleasant dreams of beauty and tranquility
And try to make piece with the...
Crying in the Dark
Sometimes I feel that I’m never going to smile again
1. I feel I’m in this world alone and I feel God is my only friend
The child hood I use have was taken at the age of five
And now the past is back to haunt me and there’s no where to hide
If you where...
A prisoner of my own weakness
Has me feeling defeated
I waged war against my on people
Who feel like they’ve been cheated
This life has a price I must pay
And one day
I’ll have to answer for the mistakes
I so often barred away I...
My Spoken Word
With everything that I write
I hope to spark a light
In the hearts and the minds
Of anyone who’s taken the time
To read what I’ve wrote
In hopes that you can see
That these words that I speak
Means more to me then poetry
It’s theaorpy for the...
Where I’m from
Where I’m from we search for answers we cannot find
Like will I ever escape this place
Or be forced into a life of crime
Where I’m from you either sell drugs or fall victim to drugs
It’s tough love
I didn’t remember kisses and hugs
Where I’m from you...
The Blind Man
Don’t feel sorry for me
I was born into this world without site
I’ve painted a vivid picture in mind that shows
What my world looks like
I see a world with equality and unity
I world with know bloodshed in are community
I didn’t see the plane crashing...
Twelve years old and has to deal with the harsh reality of growing up fast
Pregnant at such an early age in the ghetto
Was a subject they neglected to teach us about in class
Where was her parents you ask
When this child was running wild on the streets
Beautiful Black Queen
Queen of all queens I stand before thee
To attest the joy you brought into my life and how much you mean to me
A black women was the greatest gift that God has ever made
She is the only one who truly understands me
And loves me from the Cradle to the grave...
If I could change the past Would I at last Create a perfect future and
redefine my destiny
Would you think less of me If I put the people I care about lives in Jeopardy
Just so I could be a well
What if everything I thought was real is nothing more then an...
The colored section
Force to this place against my own will
Auctioned off like cattle to work in someone’s field
Was taught to be inferior because of the color of my skin
Believing black was beautiful
But it was ugly to them
Why can I not fight back
Why do I have to...
He could be reached
As I was walking down the street
I bumped into a kid no older then fourteen
Looking at me mean
Asked me what hood I claimed
And did I gang bang
As I saw the blue rag hang
Out of his pocket
And the silver object visibly
Placed in his waste
From the KKK
To the blacks I wanted to tell you I’m you’re number one fan
The one thing you hate the most a white man from the Klan
I see you’re people on the TV and I sit back and laugh
I was upset at first
But then I sat down and did the math
You cannot blame us for...
