Together America

image

As individuals, we inevitably end up conquering obstacles

But together, we’ve managed to do the impossible

Once immeasurably divided, brought together by substantial advancements in technology

In unison we managed to build a monopoly, United we stand, and watch as it’s toppling

A free country, built from blood sweat and tears

Tyranny and suppression, is a future I fear

We must wake-up  and defend our constitutional rights

Just standing together, in a yes or no fight !

Trust No One

Trust No One

image

Be careful with how easily, we choose to fall in love

There are vultures, who look to pray on you from up above

This is true, we must watch those closest to our hearts

Sometimes I think that cupid places poison on his darts

It’s a jungle in this world, like survival of the fittest

There’s frost bite on my heart, so I don’t believe in happy endings

I just wish that I had known ,this game of life in the beginning

I’d be one less happy soul, who could of probably end up winning

Puzzle Pieces

Broken Heart

In a world of neglected children with misguided dreams

Where to trust someone, is more complex than it seems

Though love can be good, it can make us blind

Just another lesson you’ll learn with the test of time

With each broken heart, you loose valuable puzzle pieces

Talking doesn’t help, when it leaves you speechless

Left dodging unexpected blows

I don’t know, how this true love thing really goes..


Spoken Word Poem | Different Times

image

Expections the same, In different times

How we have failed to evolve, it blows my mind

Somewere, a kid is being forced to go to college

The explanation we’re given by our parents is, to get get a good job, you have to get the knowledge

But what they don’t tell us is, there are college graduates working at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s & KFC

We live in different times, is what we consistently, fail to see

This is a monumental mistake, that has cost us dearly

As the financial bubble were in, continues growing yearly

When it burst, the harder it will send us crashing down

Like a wingless plane, where headed towards the ground

We need financial education in schools

How to build your own business, you know entrepreneur tools

We have to break a endless cycle, get out of the past, prepare for the future

Do not be programmed by others,  a walking computer

Have your own vision, unlike the walking blind

Realize, we’re living, in different times

One Last Time | Poem

image

I want to be with you, dont ask me why

I want to hold your hand, under the starlight sky

Trust me baby, just one last time

I love you woman, thats the bottom line

Take a leap of faith, as we watch the falling moon

An aproaching apocalypse, we’ll soon be doomed

War, lust, poverty, inflation, drugs, capitalism & greed

One last time, can please have peace

Take a trip, some place we’ve never seen

Do all those things, we once could only dream

So until our clocks have failed to wind

Can you do these things with me, one last time

I’m Going On A Diet | Spoken Word Poem

image

I’m going On A Diet

Five words at the start of the year, people often say but never do

We start, but but do we make it through

Im going on a diet

Not just physical, also a metaphorical one

So I will be stopping the things, that should not be done

No more late night snacks, or ice cream cones

No more lying down next to my telephone

I’m going on a diet

Can’t stop now, I have to much to loose

No more waking up and pressing snooze

I’m counting my calories, while cutting back

That means friends and family, who aren’t on the same level im at

I’m going on a diet

For a sense of mind, some piece and quiet

If this is what you need, you should probably try it

The Gateway Drug | Spoken Word Poem

image

From  that moment I had my first experience

I was hooked on poetry, something serious

It’s the gateway drug, for your thoughts and expressions

Knowing, in those times we fail, is when we learn life lessons

Never be afraid, to take a chance

To whatever music life plays, we have to dance

Always be flexible, and maneuver quick

Be prepared to jump, from a sinking ship

Poetry, is the gateway drug that got me started

I was destine to do this, before I departed

Sometimes it gets away, but then I relapse

Like a junkie with a needle, how I keep coming back

My words may stagger, but I never slur

Since my gateway drug, got me addicted to words

Forever 21 | Spoken Word Poem

Forever 21 | Spoken Word Poem

image

There isn’t an age more sought after than this

Some would say forever twenty one,  is as good as it gets

Children spend there childhood chasing this number

While adults get plastic surgery, to try to look younger

I guess forever twenty one is as good as it gets

It’s an age all people are anxious to hit

Why we cant stay this age forever, I really dont get it

The one year that we do have, we’ll just have to live with

I guess no forever twenty one, at least not in this Lifetime

I’m just thinking out loud, these are thoughts in my lost mind

Wedding Speech Quotes | Poem

Proud Parent

image

I am a proud parent in every since of the word

You have absorbed everything i toaught you tho you still have much to learn

From counting numbers, to musical chairs, those long nights we spent at garden of prayer

I know when you needed me most, I was always there

Through those late night silly conversations

To, playing this is a what for its conservation

I always knew you grow to be a respectable woman

Now, im standing here before you and your husband

Finding your companion, as two souls become one

since love is a prize, that cannot be won

I congrartulate you both, lets be honest you earned it

As i conclude, I’ll end it with this

Im a proud parent, as proud as gets!

Spoken Word Poem | The Future

The Future

image

I sometimes glance upon the stars, in a wondrous gaze

And think what will my future be like, in life at this pace

Will i champion my dreams, and achieve the impossible

While on the road to success, as i maneuver through obstacles

As young children, we tend to often dream

Though the odds to prosperity, are more viable than it seems

We’re discouraged , by cynical people

Naturally, I try to circumvent this type of evil

The future for me is bright and prosperous

Although it may be apparently obvious, what does the future mean to you

Will you challenge yourself, as if you have something to prove, or act as if you have nothing to loose

Like it or not we are the future, our sons and daughters, nieces and nephews

Are monumental pieces, to a bigger puzzle

Encourage them, nurture them they’ll be destine to flourish

The future we build, will be what there world is
