Happy Birthday To Me.

Seeing how far I've come,
I've got to say thank you Mom.
From being the thing you hoped for,
Now being the thing I hope for.
This is me saying a happy birthday to me,
And a multitude Thanks, to you mom.

You are my saving grace,
You both,
I can't imagine where I'd be without you both.
At age 22 I still cry to you,
Well I did the other day on the phone,
How I called you randomly and told you about how much I've missed and still miss Grandma,
And you understood each tear.

It's my birthday today,
As I transit into that Jordan age.
And even though the spot light shines on me today,
I also take this time to appreciate you, 
Make my spot light yours.
And even if there's no one there to glamour at your spot light,
I'd be your exceeding crowd to wonder on your wonders.
As a gentleman you've raised,
You've always told me how a king should let his queen have the spot light.

Your number one button I push,
Anytime I bring up matters concerning my dad.
See mom I don't do this on purpose,
Sometimes I get carried away with how you've played the father and mother role, good enough.
And I hate how we have meaningless fights about it, shit is demeaning, I swear mom.

And I'll admit it mom, a beautiful face led me to church,
But a beautiful soul took me in to seek the Face of The Lord.
It's crazy how you've always wanted me to find such, 
Some parental goals. 

Thank you Mom,
For giving me my first gift on this day,
Well over two decades ago.
This is me saying a happy birthday to me,
And a multitude Thanks, to you mom.
I love you both till forever.

Heaven's Angel

Countless dreams of heaven, I’ve had but never get to see the big picture in motion. She oozes of heritage that gives life, One that gives life to the dying and eternity to the living.
She is of Selah, worthy to behold, You’re not of human that crown queen, But, Of goddess that make gods.
I wonder what she thinks of me? I’m having not to jump the gun and move faster than my shadow. I doubt she even knows this? I doubt she even knows what she’s worth? Does she have the problem of the coloured girl? How do you define a black woman’s worthiness to herself? Perhaps I’m the missing piece for her realisation. I often say this but this time I feel it different.
I hope she knows I want someone to talk to and listens, As it goes vice-versa, making for deep-level interactions. What is biology without chemistry? I crave telepathy interactions, I’m ready to risk it all again to have this. What is a bond without elasticity? And if I yet again lose myself, I’d live with the fulfilment of my pursuit of happiness.

Problem Of The Coloured Girl

Not once, not twice, Have I seen the coloured girl feel unappreciated or unworthy? Her traits and qualities have been overlooked, So she looks for things that don't need be. Sometimes I can't help but label them the cause of their problems, But yet again, I can't help but be the pillar to lean on.
Just the other day I told my friend how beautiful she looks, And she responded with; "Lool, thanks but not me". Wholeheartedly, that shit broke my heart as I stood on convincing grounds so she sees my point view, Sadly my efforts were rebuffed.
Who you are? I bet you don't even know. Where you are? I'm definite you don't know. Where you're going? It's hard for you to even know, Because you got the problem of being beautifully unworthy.
How beautiful you are?  You don't even know, You rather hang on to the standards of magazines and playboys without knowing you're playing yourself. Giving you reasons why you should hate this and embrace that, In the process making y…

Keep The Family Close.

Sometimes it takes death to occur before we realise we should keep the family close, As a matter of fact, keep the family much closer. Death is only a reminder it would be us someday, hence our work here is limited. Breathe taking away in what seems like a moment, Not of silence but of agony.
When one of your aunts that genuinely loved you as a son dies, Though I was distant, still was a relation that assumed his role. How do you console your cousins to the thought they'll never see their mum? How do you tell your dad to pull himself together over the loss of his sister? I guess you'd probably live with the guilt of holding a childish grudge against her, But knowing you so well, I'm sure you'd barely flinch at that thought. When bitterness is soaked in thy heart, The sweet things of life become far fetched. Out of the heart, the mouth speaks.
And though life's innocence was taken away even before you knew what it meant, By someone deemed to be a superhero, But all villains don'…
