Colin’s Story

I stood for something    So, I knelt for injustice    There are many ways to prove a point    So I chose one.   Headline to Headline    Uprising or Riot, terms coined to describe the reaction.   I knelt for Travon as Zimmerman walks around with a smile on his face.   I […]

Facial Figure

Hair— golden-brown, like sweet maple saps, Brows— recurved canoes quivered by the anxious truth, stop, don’t let the negative thoughts loose Her eyes— deep in depth, light mist of tears into more so sheets of rain condensing on the flesh below Yet glistening beautifully in mine line sight And her muscles encroached while her tears […]

Celibacy 

This lifestyle was choice, a personal decision to hold myself for a later time. I didn’t know what to think in the beginning, so many failed attempts to preserve myself for the one true love that God had prepared for me. How? I had been engulfed in a culture of my own lust where my […]

FEAR

I got locked up at a very young age, yes, at a very young age… I was out with some friends, yeah some close friends of mines. And after a party me, my girl, and two friends walked down the Boulevard to an after party; it was obvious after hours in a sketchy part of […]

Dear Her.

Dear Her, Where do I begin? I could start with the apology, but that would be to anticlimactic. I’ll save that for the end. Her, I was so stupid. I clearly didn’t appreciate the gift that God had presented me. Her, you were everything and more than to a friend to me. No wonder I […]

Does it REALLY matter?

Please forgive me in advance! The unapologetic tone of this article may cause stomach pain and headaches across the board.  I have to ask a question, do black lives matter to black people? Or do they only matter when a Cop is holding the gun. Is homicide an injustice that stirs an outrage, only when […]

CONTRITE HEART

My soul is waxed dry in search of rest like restless souls Left for dead hung on the crucifix of my own vanity. Ridicule by demons, I can hear them bickering, I hear them chanting a new song-as they drink of my tears, their glasses are full of my foolishness. Handled into familiar positions, by […]

Red, and Yellow, Black and White, all precious in his sight. Right? Unity- the state of being united or joined as […]
