We Need Each Other

I don’t own the rights to this music. In these troubling times the message in this song is powerful now more than ever. Why do we keep fighting when we can achieve more by living in unity?

Say Their Names

Today is Mother’s Day. For many it’s a time of celebration, but for many black Mothers it is their 911. It is the day their hearts are filled with sadness for the lives of their children unjustly taken away. Let us in black community stand together in solidarity with the grieving mothers. Let their children’s death not be in vain. Today and every Mother’s Day, let us say their names.

In a civilized society we cannot continue to make excuses for the deaths of unarmed black men. Every citizen has the right to life irrespective of skin color. Every mother deserves to experience joy on Mother’s Day.

Poetry

I Can go on

I can go on, 

In spite of shattered dreams,

And broken promises, I can go on.

I can go on,

When all seems lost,

And sorrow seems to,

Fragment my heart, I can go on.

I can go on,

When pain seems to be

My best friend,

And joy threatens to subside, I can go on.

I can forget

The hurt of yesterday,

And embrace tomorrow,

Knowing that,

If I have love in my heart,

No matter what

May come my way,

I can and I will go on.

Sweet Bitter Love

Dear sweet beautiful woman

I wish I could take you back in time

To where you saw love through rose colored lenses.

Dear beautiful woman

I wish I could take you back in time

To where falling in love was like falling

into a sweet dream you didn’t want to wake up from.

Dear beautiful woman all is not lost,

In time your broken heart will heal,

And perhaps one day You will find love again!

Love Fires

Love Fires
Love fires burn a tender flame,
Inextinguishable,
No matter the storm or rain.
A small spark,
A slow flame,
And then a blazing furnace,
When love fires burn.
Forest fires will eventually go out,
A candle will burn itself out,
The coal in the fireplace will go out,
Love fires once lit,
Will burn to eternity,
Love fires never go out.

Relationships

Who you fall in love with is destined by fate. While we can plan for most aspect of our lives, when it comes to love the best made plans can fall to pieces. Often emotions take over and you find you are no longer in control. The heart wants what the heart wants and sometimes the heart gets what the heart wants, and yet relationships fail.

Sometimes the excitement is all in the chase and once the prize is won the excitement diminishes and complacency sets in. People begin taking each other for granted, passions wains…. Often times relationships fail because people don’t take the time to try to make it work. Like everything else, in order to be a success, relationships take work.
