Human We Are


We live.

We hurt.

We love.

We fight.

We retreat.

We cry.

We hate.

We hurt

some more.

We love

harder yet.

We grow.

We mature.

We become

wiser still.

What’s left

after death?

Love remains.

After death,

love remains.

Humans live

to love.

Even after death,

humans live

to love.


Genesis Of The Scribe


Life happens.

All of the joyous

moments and abysmal,

crushing valleys


in between.

Within that space, we

intrinsically seek out

an outlet to filter all

our pain and angst.

The words pile up into

a kaleidoscope of impeccable,

colorful artistry. In this

finite moment, writers

are born.


Sacred Parchment Sanctuary


I write on these pages.

It is a necessary


where I return to voice

the words I dare not

say out loud.

Within the confines of

these pages,

I am free

to verbalize my thoughts

and truth absent

of judgement.

I write to release into the

universe that which

seeks to suffocate

my soul.

In this space, I am free.

I inhale and exhale slowly.

I write my words and cleanse

my conscience one

thought at a time. On sacred

parchment, the words flow


I am completely uninhibited.


My Heart Is Happiest

Watching Ezra Dance


A carefree, teenaged black boy

dances the night away

in his mother’s love-filled kitchen.

Happy hands and feet

wave and glide soulfully across

the checkered tiled floor.

How monumental this moment.

Watching a black boy safe

at home tonight, from the

rage-filled world outside,

that won’t allow teenaged black

boys to blissfully dance.


Summer Farewell


Burnt orange Autumn leaves

fall slowly to the ground,

leaving behind quiet

Summer memories of ruby-throated

hummingbirds and the

faintest scent of

jasmine vines.
