    It is hard to contain the disdain sometimes
    the pain of the heart the anger of the mind
    it is difficult to hold in the passion often
    the catharsis of emotion driving me to my coffin
    the breaking point is just beyond the next turn
    i'm shaking now as the swell in me now burns
    I yearn for release even if there is no relief
    firm in my resolve while others resolve to stay sleep
    the mountain so steep the progress just creeps
    longing to move miles while only moving feet
    trying to dispense love while being met with only fear
    so the only thing that seems to help right now...are the tears

    Awww, you need a hug! :couple:


    This so spoke to the frustrations and sometimes feelings of uselessness, of futility, fighting against triumph.


    Great piece, A007!

    You've put into words what has been crossing my mind dear brother. And your words...I've missed them in the poetry forums. Definitely felt the intense pulse.

    This was the epitome of frustration. And I definitely understand this emotion. This was really well written my king

    Thanks all! It seems that pouring my thoughts onto the page also helps. I need to write more!

    Its been some time since I've had the privilege of reading a piece from the mind of Brother A007 :read:

    You shouldnt hold out on us brother A007

    Sometimes... the power behind a few soft spoken words of a Strong Blak Man reach where calculated debate perhaps does not :read:

    :look: Yeah... you most def should write more Brotha...:read: :)
