Poem: Home

This place is not what it was.

It had everything that dreams made.

The love that walks down the street lives in the valley of hope.

This lives in your soul and gives you all that life has.

Then you leave and things start to change.

Nothing is the same, yet it feels right.

This is where you were made.

This is where your love was given time to grow.

The people were there to hold your hand.

Now you must go.

The one thing that hold you down is knowing that this will always be home.


The Day

This day 20 years ago I was in the 5th grade sitting in Mrs. Davis class, and everything was normal. Then I remember hearing rumbles from the teachers talking about something had happen. Being a kid, I did not exactly know what they were talking about. I remember we went home I think early that day, and I used to go over my grandmother’s house after school because my mom worked the night shift. I just remember sitting on the couch, watching the tv and seeing the two towers on fire, and one falling. I was still not sure what I was seeing.

I did not know what was going on, I just know that me and my cousins were sent off to go play as the adults watch the news. There are a couple of days that I will never forget, and this is one of them. The one thing that I do remember the most is from my mother’s mother side of the family talking about this being the end of days. This scared the daylight out of me. I did not understand what they were saying, all I knew was them talking about how the world was about to end and that we all need to start praying. I think that was the moment that I started to dig deep into my faith.

This was a tragic day, and it one that we will never forget.

Poem: Dark Again

There you are I have not seen you in a while.

How is the light treating you?

Is it everything you wanted, is it showing you your dream?

Do not let me get in your way, this is what you have always wanted.

You have always wanted the love that was around, but you never found.

The things that seemed so wrong have always made you feel right.

Then what happen you lost it all.

 You realize the hopes are for the ones that likes to dream.

That was never you and now you are back with me.

We meet again this time it is not for fun.

This time it will last.

Forever is a while.

The pain is here is stay, and this time you will pay.

So, darkness are you there?
