Black Poetry : about those leaves

leaves don't stay green forever
autumn's on its way
what i mean to say:
i once asked, "is this what love looks like?"
his reply, "i'm not too sure
aint never really seent it."
so i chatted with my spiritual guides
loaded my trusty slingshot
with All Love while the feelings were hot
braced myself pulled the bowl back taunt
let it fly my love caught a ride on the moonlight
streaking through a cloud in a dark blue sky
true love rained and with the stars fanfare
ignited and then surrounded My True Him
our soul laid bare recognized itself and
began to glow how could i know then
his side would cause rips and tears
my side alone could never repair
now i sit here crying real tears as i stare
knowing for my own survival
and that of our eternal soul and love
this lifetime i must say goodbye
i will search for you in the next
maybe then we'll get it right
remembering love never dies
but most times suffers in the hands of fools

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
Life is a poem, love is the pen.
