Diamonds they say are forever 
But isn't that what you're supposed to be,
Live forever?
Well in my eyes though.

My first true love,
You treasured me,
Even before my existence.
You thought me my first rhyme,
Before I knew what rhyming was.
Our Sunday tales by moonlight 
Really was Sunday's tale by moonlight.
You loved me in a unique way,
The rest of the family couldn't understand.
Our bond was fiercer than that of James.

Antho!
Only you called me that,
You earned the right to call me by that name,
Lord knows I miss the way you call me.

Every now and then,
I feel you around me.
I dunno why it's so, 
Maybe it's cause I lay where you once laid,
That I relive every dark tear that soaked on pillows I lay now.

You foresaw all the negatives about me,
Like the girl you warned me about whom she later made him play my role.
I can't forget how you always told me to chase whatever I believe in,
Telling each time I'll be great,
And change my roots and surroundings whenever it needs changing.

You kept that hunger in me, 
Even before hunger got to me.
You gave me all of you
And like Oliver Twist, I wanted more.

A true warrior,
My angel in the sky.
Heaven is definitely a place I'll rock with you.
I love you till infinity.

Regina.

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'…
