Real Beauty

Physically, you maybe as ugly as a baboon’s ass… but who cares.. Real beauty is all about who you are and how you use the gifts God has blessed you with to make the world a better place. There’s a lot of ugly people that look good at a glance.

Mama
Look at the love poet

Daddy
Look at the angry black poet

Ooh!!
Look at the funny poet
Showing his ass

Poets pour their souls
Into microphones on stages

Spectators pay
Then applaud
In approval of the words
Being hurled from the cages

The stage
Is a zoo

It’s okay
You can pet him
He won’t bite

He’s safe to bring home
He’s housebroke

Like circus animals
Poets are tamed
Transformed from
Truthful closet poets
To farm raised performers
By promoters
Pimping poetry
To make cash
In exchange for the fame
From freedom writers
To house poets
Regurgitating the same
Words
Again
and again
and again

Next to the stage
We have “REPEAT”

Next to the Stage... Repeat

Love Remains

I don’t see
The graceful flap
Of butterflies
Hovering over flowers
When love is on my
Mind

Even though,
I understand the
circular nature of time
And I’ve been to this
Place before
I’m an amnesiac
So I’m still living
Blind

Each
Traversal
Of the circle of
Life
Causes
The soul’s cage
To be redefined

The soul
retains its identity
But with each trip
We lose the
Contents of our mind

Sometimes
We just lose our mind
But the love remains.

The Love Remains
