    April Showers

    They say April Showers bring May flowers,
    showers of tears that the doves cry sometimes in April.
    No love loss,no need to look, just existing the world did.
    While devastation took place. On a continent too far away
    to see but not far enough away for us to forget. Nor far
    enough away For the riches resources to be exploited.
    So when the April showers fall from the eyes of mother,
    fathers, sister and brothers who remember the confusion,
    isolation and pain caused solely by ignorance hatred and greed.
    I think the only flowers that may be produced are weeds or
    weeping willows growing strong and tall shading the glen
    that is a place of I remember whens.
    So cry the showers of April to empower you soul
    to rejuvenate and replenish the world with your beautiful
    seeds that will grow fast as weeds and tall as the trees.
    And remember that even if the dove cries sometimes in April,
    May comes with sunshine.
    And the flowers that are the hope for tomorrow.

    April brings showers
    For some wedding bells
    Gifts from eddie bauer
    Love you scream from towers
    Black unity all the power
    Black men dating white gurls
    The thought is so sour
    Yet
    The bliss of spring
    Birds that harmonize and sing
    Engagements and 4karat rings
    Cause love means everything
    April brings lovers and late night flings
    One night stands and other romantic things
    Yet
    The imagination of certain sensations
    The passions patiently waiting
    My poetry is anxiciously waiting
    To deliver words from Aprils curves
    Thats caress the nerves of every
    Thought your body deserves
    Im a poet ghetto with some nerves
    Shake off haters and perves
    I write poetry so you know
    I am the best that you have heard
    Yet
    Poetry is a mighty lion
    Have no fear not scared of dying
    Cant fade away aint no lying
    Heart of a beast lyrics feast
    For a supreme maximum
    Optimize my gift
    So deep feel it in your abdominal
    Addicted fenin like this was optimo
    Yet
    April brings mission impossible
    Tantrum so unstoppable
    Just so phenominal
    A poet chose from God
    I was risen from the dirt
    To write poetry not go to prison
    Stop popping guns and just to mention
    Im bullet away from dying
    And poetry keep me wishin
    God told me keep on listening
    My poetry was written
    To teach others how gifted
    The streets made me
    With no pot to piss in
    My mental verbal conception
    Is the April thoughts
    That just made you smile
    Much Love

    Sincerly,
    Tantrum "Last Of My KInd"

    POETRY

    To me an escape from the everyday,
    A tool to say what I need to say.
    Poetry to me, my best friend at times and
    that shoulder when I need to cry.
    I love you Poetry.
    You have been my place where
    I can smile and shine.
    And when I need it my life line.
    Poetry a place to be the me the world doesn't get to see.


    *My dabble into poetry started when I had something
    going on in my life,and no one who I could voice eloquenlty
    enough what I was thinking. I wrote a few and stumbled upon
    this beautiful place where I was accepted with open arms and encouraged to
    grow.*
    :smooch: To my Destee Family.

    POETRY..........It's means of expression , the view and deed through
    the mind of thoughts what i feel , seen , and experience, it also open
    the wave to other minds so poetry mean a great deal and play a very
    large role in my life.

    As an POET.......I feel great that my lyrical words can reach and touch
    others in different ways and it be one of the gifted people called a poet.

    Why did i choose to be a POET........To express myself what i feel
    in a way that people understand through the craft of this art , which i
    took as a working tool at an early age , always wanted to create my own
    view to manifest it into a poem or an artistic bond of words that can reach
    out so i became a poet of expression .

    APRIL............poem

    Month of blooming love
    verse into April showers
    for the mayflowers wit
    admiration of beauty

    Strengthing the green
    April limbs blooming
    the blossome of morrow
    love afloat in the glist
    in a satisfied purpose
    as spring visit again

    The most treasure of
    thy month is the birth
    the life of offspring
    rooted around the trunk
    of love and honor as
    April brings happiness
    a change and new
    meanings to celebrate.

    ~April~love

    April love

    I watched in delight, while the April showers
    danced proudly on all my beautiful flowers

    It took me back, to the day we first met
    a warm April day...I'll never forget

    I need you as much as the plants need the rain
    but you manage to keep my heart in pain

    And every year, when April comes around
    reminds me the most, of the great love we found

    So when did we stop? ...who gave up first?
    replacing my joy, with this enormous hurt

    Whatever we did, to put each other down...
    my heart still smiles...when April comes around.

    Poetry chose me when I couldn't find a way to express myself to the world.
    It is the only thing that the world cannot take from me.
    It's a gift that keeps on giving especially when I feel like nothing even matters.

    I know there are many many poets, but I would love to reach those who are longing for their hearts to be free.
    Appreciated,loved and acknowledged beyond limitations.
    There are many people who smile and cry everyday and don't know the beauty of their happiness.
    Constantly wondering how far their tears travel after they fall.
    I want to be the one to direct them through poetry.

    April showers chasing the sun away.
    Birds singing love songs to the wind
    flowers perfumed in colors soon to bloom
    Rainbows design the sky in lyric
    The taurus rides the moon through flourescent dreams
    Spring questions summer love
    April teases tears
    Winter's jealousy taunts the heat
    A cool breeze walking with me
