My Name Is Arthur



My Name Is Arthur

A is for those aches and pain-that hits, way before the rain

R is for rubbing the pain away-praying it wont be worse than yesterday.

T is for the tightness as our fingers swell-and the tingle that happens as well.

H is for the hurt in our knees-as we pray to be pain free.

U is for usage which we don’t have in…

Addicted 2 Recovery-10/17/10-10am



Addicted 2 Recovery/10/17/10-10am

I’m not trying to put anyone down-but once lost, how many times, you got to be found.

I know it was the fight of my life-day after day, night after night.

Addiction had bound my hands, my feet-and the urge haunted me even, in my sleep.…

Crippled by our environment, by Patricia robinson-11/12/10-9pm



Crippled by our environment /By: Patricia Robinson 11/12/10-9am

Where we live, who we know-what is said, how we grow.

This is how we learn-and in some instances, how we crash and burn.

B/c its as if life stands still-and the stepping forward is against our will.…

Truth, untruth, right, wrong



Truth, Untruth, right, wrong

We all make mistakes in life. Do foolish things without thinking.

We get our selves into things we find we cant say no to when need be.

I don’t profess to know what is right all the time.

Im an human being, I struggle…

Life Of An Enthic Writer

Love the plan you having working in your life. Love the Faith you have brewing in your Spirit. Love the you that you are becoming. Make everyday your New Year and every moment your Birthday. If you can't love all those things listed above than it is TIME to make some changes.

If there is no Joy and Laughter in your heart than its TIME to reexamine your… Continue

Just Venting- "Tis The Season"

As I put up the tree this year, decorating it without giving thought to the Christmas Carols playing on the radio. I let my mind drift back to the days when Christmas was filled with excitement for everyone. Had I gotten to old to be filled with the spirit of giving? Had I become overwhelmed with life's ups and downs?



I allowed myself to be taken in by today's news, the forecast of yesterday, and forgotten…

Scattered Lies II

by Madison



From the JoeyPinkney.com Book Review:



"Madison’s Scattered Lies II picks up right where the first installment ended, yet loses no time in immersing us once again in a world of lies, lusts and games of wits. I have to admit, I knew I was…

Eulogize Me

Don't let them lie in my eulogy

Let the good words be real

Tell the people I was strong

Say something my body could feel

Tell them I didn't have a savior

Tell them in spite of that

In age curbed my behavior

Tell the whole truth

I didn't quite love my neighbor

Tell them my mind was a little warped

From the war we call life

Tell them if I'm gone to early

I met the woman I'd call wife

Tell them I lived out Jobs chapter

But… Continue

A Nightmares Dream

I'm guessing you can't relate to murder

Muffled chloroformed screams

The stench of flesh

And what "R.I.P." means

The thoughts of monsters

Children urinating their jeans

I give to you Reader..

A nightmares dream



I see a family annihilator

Who's a porn addicted masturbator

Who gives in to his necrophilia

While shocking the bodies with tasers



Altering his appearance afterward

Clipped his hair, cut his beard

Being on… Continue

Life Of An Ethnic Writer

"Walk by Faith and not by Sight"... should be an oathe we all should swear by.

Sight will leave us confused, agigated, down in the dumps, over excited and superifcal sound. But, faith, the gut feeling in the depths of our Soul will led us Forward. It will warn us when there is a shift and it will soothe us in the Valley.

Well, IDK...

Have Faith when all else fails...

Be Encouraged...

NO WHERE TO RUN – NO WHERE TO HIDE

As the 21st struggles between the Arab, Indian, Asian, Spanish and European players rages on over which one of them will eliminate the most African American’s in the shortest amount of time rapidly pushes forward the African Americans are “black people in the open” without refuge or shelter.
