“African”

“The power of truth is what poisoned the root.
Hidden behind lies, cloaked in uncertainty,
A beautiful tree of righteous validity.

Still battling a centuries old war,
Closer to victory? I’m still unsure.

But I think frozen eyes are beginning to see,
The reality of our proud civility.
A greater emphasis on history needs to be planned,
So misrepresentation won’t entomb the black man.”©

“Blazing Love”

“Love doesn’t see color.
Only the raw emotion,
Of passionate adoration.

Love doesn’t understand judgement.
Only the endearing eyes,
Of a beautiful soul.

Love doesn’t see status.
Only the unwavering potential,
Of everything you’ve ever wanted.

Love is fire.
Consuming everything in its path,
Me and you included.”©
