    if i could harness the wind
    i’d use its power to make your life
    drama-free
    obstacle-free
    part the sea like Moses
    so you’d never drown in oceans of sorrow
    borrow the stars to glitter your goals
    and magnify all you do
    so the whole world could see your
    strength
    magnificence
    beauty
    just how worthy you are of the pedastal
    you perch in my dreams
    higher than the moon
    where i’d hover overhead
    to brighten your darkest nights
    illuminating the pathways as you glide
    eyes wide open
    so you’re never lost
    and can always see
    give you the strength of the elements
    leave no dream unturned
    raise the ceiling in the sky
    put the favor of God
    in the palm of your hand
    there–where i eat, live and die
    turn myself inward
    find you everywhere i look
    take your hand and read your fortune like a book
    journey to the land where my memories were made
    teach you who i use to be
    then we’d lift your wings
    fly you to the heavens
    write your name on the sky
    ride a cloud till you fall
    asleep and dream
    a new life together
    where we’d never awaken
    instead, climb to the highest elevations
    realize all that you wish to be
    wishing it’s to be
    with me
    you
    the star of my dreams
    can have anything you want
    in mine
    where the wind whispers secrets
    and desires
    blowing
    drifting
    turning the earth
    if i could harness the wind
    i’d travel across time
    and deliver who you are
    to me.

    this piece i wrote right after a day in court, where i saw a man basically begging the judge to see his children. they were giving him one weekend a month, and a few hours a week during the week. he had been kept from his children by their mother for so long, they only knew him through the checks he sent her. he lived out of town and can not take them anywhere. so he has to travel to sacramento to see them, even for his weekend, he can't take them out the county. money was never an issue, because even she admitted he paid support regularly and voluntarily.

    anybody who said black men don't care for our children need to look no further than family court services to see how many black men are asking for time, but denied access to, our children.
