His Story.

It was all smiles on my face,
As I saw a good friend I hadn't seen in about six years.
Hugs, smiles, greetings,
We shared in a short time.
We had the catch up session,
You know! To cover up for lost time.
I watched as my aunt came down the stairs,
Although forgotten me.

Thoughts refreshed,
She smiles and opens her hands wide in embracement.
I could tell she did a comparison of the old me to the new from the way she spoke.
She's pleased with what she sees.

Got introduced to a few beings,
They spoke to me like I was their own,
I could feel comfortable with them.
We Converse like the All Stars,
And he spoke.

He has to be amongst the smartest persons I've ever met.
With so much pain he told his hapless tale.
I saw a man who was on his way up,
And suddenly, as though engulfed in flames the ladder he was on,
His world came down like fallen ashes.
I could see his soul,
Filled with pain and anger.
He's on bended knees.

A fallen angel awaits him,
Desperate to come back on his feet,
Learn to fly in the sky.
He spoke words of wisdom like;
"A family can make or break you".
I could concord with what he said.
Lectured me on his learnings,
I marvelled so much at his intellect.

He hopes for better days.

As he told his story.

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'…
