Revolutionary Me

Marcus, Malcolm, Mumia, and Huey planted the seed,

for Revolutionary Me.

Being beat by the police at 17,

was the conception of Revolutionary Me.

The unwarranted harassment and checks for id,

strengthened the embryo of Revolutionary Me.

If there were no PG County police,

there might not have been the…

What Can We Do To Begin Unifying?

Peace be unto you reader. Today, I would like to explore some possible ways we can begin healing ourselves and becoming unified as a nation of people inside of a nation. Black Nationalism is still nothing more than an ideology in this day and time, and I feel it is past due for black nationalism to materialize and no longer be just an idea. Just because I support and am for black nationalism, that does not make me a racist. I do not subscribe to the…

Is your life Scattered?

Have you ever wanted to take time off? Not just on your job. Have you ever wanted to take time off from being a Mom, a Wife, a Sibling, a Child, a Rescuer, the Catalyst, the Organizer, ...... what other titles do you hold, for yourself and others? Have you ever wanted to just close the door, take the phone off the hook, lay across your bed and rest..... no designated time to get up.... just rest.

Well, if you did that most would give you a label; stressed, overwhelmed, depressed,…

THE ROAD LEST TRAVELED

The shortest distance between two points is a straight line

What we don't plan on

When contemplating the journey

Are the roadblocks that be you/me/us/we.

While we are hard pressed to believe it,

Sometimes the best way to move a mountain

Is to simply climb over it.

Yet here we are

Stranded in our respective ruts

As we stubbornly continue to walk in circles

around this vertical pinnacle

As though doing today what we did yesterday

Will somehow…

QUIET WHISPERS

In homage to Yvette Cade*



And here I stand.

Quiet whispers silenced

by the desire

to see you as my truth.

messages went unheeded

while I danced to your music.

Problems, warning signs ignored

because the you that I adored

remained my fantasy.

Staying because of what I wanted it to be

not because of what it is.

Embarrassed to admit I might be wrong

Stubbornly believing I could make wrong right

I chose to stay and…

THE JOURNEY

It's a fine line to walk.

between the most fragile of lifedreams and reality.

The surest path to take

where the lines blur into one sure passage

is that along which pure truths are sought;

no longer bending what is real

to fit a self-made course

justifying the road chosen.

We can have the right dreams

on the wrong path.

or

the wrong dreams

on the right path.

The end result is the same.

Seeking…

INCONSEQUENTIAL (THROUGH A CHILD’S EYES)

What my truth is

When it’s not yours

Becomes a lie --

Or so you say

And makes me cry.



Whatever you choose not to believe

Is minimized.

Dismissed.

Trivialized.

As you shake your head

Say I’m mistaken

Calling my truth a lie

And it makes me cry.



Your hugs and kisses

For others’ sake.…

Elegy on an Ocean Blue

It’s funny what comes to mind

When we mentally rehearse what is…what was…what could have been.

You are still here, roaming through my moments of reflection.

And it’s not yesterday

Ebony ripples of sculptured sinew  

Ocean-dipped, melodic cadence

Strummed my essence of mental intimacy

As moonlit waves crashed against the shore

I wanted more

Of you.

There was so much

Your every gentle touch

I still revel in…

THEY HAVE COME FOR US BLACK MAN SO..... SAY GOOD BYE TO YOUR BLACK WOMAN

The strategy employed against us as changed from "divide and conquer" to "one size fits all" with the exception being that it now only applies to the black man. Black women have been elevated out and beyond our control and reach.

With the black woman having been economically and systematically elevated through media projections, employment advancements and strategic social engineering the black man stands alone and is now being herded as cattle to a destination of…
