The Mother Dearest.

With her advancement in technology,
She's able to call me via FaceTime.
She's just filled with Joy and refreshed,
As the sister just had a successful surgery.
The night before, she was miserable.

We spoke about you,
And she asked if I was still gonna make that trip to the Amazon.
I bluntly replied to what she needed to hear,
She knew something was up.
She scolds me and said I shouldn't be a mess like my father.
At least I'm his son, and he's one of my only 2 competitions momma,
I try to be better than the man he is.

You know it's never going down well when we talk about dad,
You turn the tables on me and it's mostly damned.
I hate when I get buried for this, but you think after all this I'm going to be picking sides against you.
I hate when your insecurities come to play momma,
It belittles you momma, know your worth ma,
I really hate talking to you like this ma,
I really don't want to talk about this momma,
Every time this issue comes up I gotta result to my dark ways to calm down momma.
I worry more anytime I see you worry ma.

You taught me how to love and told me it's the only way out for us as humans.
I give them love and meekness ma but they need something other than that,
What more they want from me ma?
Maybe I need unveiling my bad side so they know better not to act holy at thou and cast stones.
We are all sinners so there should be no casting of stones in this momma.

There's really no love in this ma,
Only a few I call family,
Well at least I'm calling ma.
I'm working on this ma,
Less time communicating makes my absence been felt more than ever.
I'm getting old and you're getting older momma,
We are both entering new stages of our lives as we are living.
I'm setting out my life but one day you're gonna understand momma.
Don't lose hope in me ma.
Don't lose hope in me momma.

I love you, 
The Mother Dearest.

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'…
