THE REVOLUTION IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!

IN THE YEAR 2013......

They have closed your schools, libraries, hospitals, body building gyms, taken away your guns, increased your prison time, rolled by your civil rights, revoked your right to be silent, foreclosed your homes, letting you rot with disease, moved trauma centers away from you, built penitentiaries for you, flooding the market with slave movies, shooting you dead on sight…

IS RACIAL BIGOTRY AND WHITE SUPREMACY A THING OF THE PAST?

Today in American society, we all live in a different social climate than that of our Fathers, Mothers and Grandparents. We have a Black President for the first time in the history of this great nation. We have more political representation than at any point in the history of America. Blacks now…

My Poetry

I’ll Be There

When you come home from a hard day’s work

I’ll be there to ease your mind

Take your stuff and put it up

Massage your back and your feet

When you are weary and downtrodden

I’ll be there to lift you up

And make your spirit rise again

I’ll comfort you with warmth and love

When you are happy and filled with joy

I’ll be the one who bought you there

I’ll be by your side long as your true

I’ll…

My Poetry

I Am A Woman A Lady

When I stare in the mirror

I like what I see

But when I look on the inside

I love what’s inside me

I am beautiful and sexy

Very pleasant on the outside

I have a good heart 

And am smart on the inside

It may be hard to believe

Because beauty in and out is rare

But I tell you right now

Both is what I share

I won’t give away my respect

Nor will I give away my…

My Poetry

Hurricane

You blew in like the north wind

And whooshed me off my feet

Twisted me up in your arms like a cyclone

Your storm of love brings me heat

Rain down on me like a monsoon of passion

I’ll consume you like a tempest of fire

And shake your very core like an earthquake

We’ll become wrapped up in a whirlwind of desire

I’ll downpour into your being like a blizzard

Blast through me like a gale

Submission is…

My Poetry

Her Children Are Crying

Her children are crying

Their tummies are aching

She’s looked all around

But no jobs for the taking

She doesn’t have food stamps

Nor does she have welfare

She just lost her job

No one seems to care

Her children are crying

Their tummies are aching

She’s getting stressed out

The pain she’s not faking

It’s been a week still no call

She’s done what she…

My Poetry

Echoes In The Night

As day turns to night

And on comes the street light

Another body drops cold to the ground

As the onlookers gather around

Another mother has lost a son

Another life has been undone

Another wife has lost a husband

Another person has lost a friend

Another child has lost a father

A crying son and a daughter

A crying mother and a wife

Another family’s ruined life

But on and on…

My Poetry

A Slave’s cry

Stranded in this place

I cannot recognize

Abandoned and lonely

No hears my cries

As I walk through this wasteland

Of wilderness and desolation

I am consumed with anguish

I walk this road with hesitation

On every turn that I come upon

There is more pain than the last turn

Agony and torment is spewing from my pores

Every step I take more pain I earn

Until I am enveloped in…

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
