This earth he has traveled
Far and yonder
The man in the suitcase
The constant wanderer
Hotel and motel are second homes
The temporary sustaining shelter all alone
Through cities,
states, provinces counties
Parishes, towns, villages
Continents and countries
Wandering
Searching
Reflect
Learning
Embracing domestic and
world culture as just human culture
Growing in inner strength
Acquiring greater knowledge
And apply the knowledge as wisdom
To bring him in touch
With self
Making him a more interesting and alluring catch.

I have chosen to not forgo
My forgiveness pill
I want the chance to let go
Release
Vent my body naturally
Never forgetting my vegetables
Will give me the ability to lighten my life
In many ways
While it's appropriate to blow up
I chose to let it go
So I will get that chance of
Putting down
What's bad for me
And
Get to the good of it all.

I got gravitational utopia
So down to earth
This is where the fire be
Coming from the ground
Held off by assumed few
Words come and go
But to where
To bring you to the utopia
Of
Force
Them to join you where you be
Hurt
And All
Then let it go
To the clouds
Where we end up without the Utopian control of gravity.
Then forgetfulness
will be your virtue
for giving a new route to continuation.

I evolve
From hippie girl
To mom
Wife
Divorced

Single mother
With babies
Old woman
With grandchildren

I evolve
Am the same
But different
Daily

Time stops for no one

As it turns out
Unbeknownst to me and others
You are indigenous
To your species
Spawned from hell

I carry your last name
Reluctant to change for records
And cost but I claim it not
As I sign it
There it is mocking me

Prayers sent up daily
To unentangle me from any memory
Of loving monsterious creatures
I used to call family
To keep me free and at peace

Although you are indigenous
Did not mean you had to
Continue in the traditions
Of making a loving woman's life
Hell

You flambe your brain
Everytime you put pipe to mouth
Crack
Cracked our life together right open

Not much spilled
But let me escape never looking back
Not much regard for your own health
Smoking still after your stroke

I run not willing to be part of your
Next dinner of selfishness
And the pretty blue blaze
Of flambe brains

Next word: waffle

Bear!
They yelled
Annie get your gun
General kerfuffle in the middle
Of a small forested town

Really!
Didn't you move here
To get away from the city
Teach your kids about animals
That don't live in zoos

Careful!
You grab your kids and whine
They imitating you now crying
Annie bursts onto the scene
Gun in hand

Look!
Education in fear
Not rationality
Annie points her gun
But bear butt disappeared behind a tree

See!
The bear ran away at your first yell
Fast as bear feet can run
Now that was the education
You failed to see

Next word: squall

Who's at fault
The polluted air
Who is good to go around
Still the sight of cluttered words
How this has fallen upon us
The want of
getting out
maybe through
the hole
of floating free.
No ending of adding onto
The next pressure
of why not believe
In the atmosphere
I float
So not free
Where the holes at to bring me up & through?
To be electromagnetic

To me ye be as electromagnetic
cling to the script thee scribe
as I ride da waves of verses
like a sweet curse or worse
as ever electric current swivel
the magnetic field disappears
right before me when the current
of ya pen is turned off.

Electromagnets is da wire of
our connection running off da heart
driving force keep scribing
as I ride the electro wave
craving it for another shock.

Spreading Joy.... need some?
we're

wildflowers

swaying beautifully

and strong in cruel winds as

the

world's

atmosphere

tries to cast shade on us

by

shining

artificial sun on

white lillies but everyone knows

the real dealio

direct sunlight burns

lilly whites to

red ashes​

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.
