The age of aquarius
Is still forthcoming
Although it was song
It's impact has dimished
To a hum

Hippies and civil rights
Limped out on left stage
Leaving our new young
Without a clue
On how to sing again

Replaced by video games
Where young men dream of war
But have nine lives
Like a cat
Really does not

Make love not war
Protest signs trampled
And long forgot
Although there is still
The need to be free

Of oppression, hunger
Women in other counries in
Captivity
Stoned for not wearing a veil
New batteries never kill the controller

The age of aquarius, where all men will be free
Women living with them in harmony
Has yet to come
Our dreams now lost on our children
With video game controllers in their hands

Next word: Hippie

The beat rings clear in my head
Rythmic as my heart beats
Sunday morning dancing
To music no one hears
But me

Zamunda
Leisurely swaying hips
Vaccuming and cleaning
Stpping to turn on the radio
LOUD

Neighbors complaining
Me laughing
My cats chasing and playing
Always makes me happy
The Zamunda beat

Next word: ECLIPSE

Mass glow in da shadow
as they cross maze eclipse
upon da skies of memory

Like da lunar of my love
as it orbit and cross the soul
into an eclipse of emotions

Leaving a reddish glow
far and between
that play in my mind
a star show repeatedly



NEXT WORD::: Respective!

Nine time the charm
like baseball nine players
standing
as I cross my nine elements
to a place before ten
I rest myself upon da blocks
eight time you told me
but only one come to mind
that's nine!
so I shine on

next word ;; Respective!

Your ignominious
Treatment of my soul
Set me flying
The other direction
Than closer to you
What did you think
I would forget
Or that in having me again
You had me in your grasp
Trapped
Your trophy
That you held up
To your friends
Saying
See what I got
But
I had the last laugh
You only got to do it once
Before I ran again

Next word: oblique

Mixed bodies in a crumpled twist
Looking like the pains of arthritis
As they shake and turn
Coveting the return of sensations within the legs of both
To start anew
The painful pleasures
Of the enjoyment of lovers

Next word: ubiquitous

Will you come and be with me
Your power is always present to me
Whom ever the lucky female shall be
I always feel it's so me
How ubiquitous this may seem
But I am you
As you shall become me
As soon as we present each other more
In her own words
Finding her chance forever more.

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.
