    SEARCHING DEEP WITHIN
    WITH SOUL AND PEN
    I CONVERSE WITH THE WIND
    EVERY NOW AND THEN...
    REMINDED OF PASS ACTIONS
    AND CONSEQUENCES
    MY SOUL SEEKS
    FOR INSTANCES
    OF PURE HAPPINESS
    NOT FOUND IN MAN
    NOR WOMAN.
    AT TIMES DARKNESS
    SUBSIDES THEN OVERIDES
    THE LIGHT INSIDE
    HENDERING MY ABILITY IN
    THE AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY
    AND ACCOUNTABILITY.
    AS A YOUNG BOY
    I WAS TRAINED TO
    HOLD BACK THE
    PRECIOUS GIFTS OF
    THOUGHTS, FEELINGS, & EMOTIONS
    ALL THE WHILE POETRY
    WAS IN MOTION.
    LIVING BY THAT NOTION
    WITH EVERY PEN STROKE
    I BROKE
    THE YOKE
    THAT HAD STRONGHOLDS
    OVER MY LIFE
    CAUSING MUCH STRIFE.
    SEARCHING DEEP WITHIN
    WITH SOUL AND PEN
    I CONVERSE WITH THE WIND
    EVERY NOW AND THEN....
