help Lizzy . . . please . . .

Help Lizzy,



i wrote this poem while standing on the Street Corner about 4 Am in the City of Philadelphia. The inspiration came by way of observing a couple of young teenage girls walking the street. I asked my self why were they there. As the City began to awaken so did my realization that they were someplace they were not naturally supposed to be. They should have been home. As i began to reflect i thought about my own Teenage Daughters Myiya, Monii and Marian. This experience was…

the paradox of 1



the paradox of 1



all of existence . . .

resides within me.

yet . . .

“i” am but a part of the All



all that i dream is my own

yet . . .

i am a part of the collective



i was but a Seed

“i” am Now a fruit . . .

here !

and “i” am sweet

taste the offering of love . . .

but i as you . . .

have been spawned by the Tree of Life

that stands in the…

we . . .



We



we search for what we already hold

we must journey within our loving fold

we think about the thoughts of old

yet we tell of things that we’ve been told



truth eludes those who run from light

we close our eyes and embrace blind sight

we yearn for peace but yet we fight

freedom is not in what’s cinched tight



we seek the joys in deluded mind

the paths to Dreams we’ve…

it . . .





it . . .



she was in pain

and i could see it

i held her hand

so i could be it

and now i knew

i had to free it

for her pain was my pain too



a kind word spoken

that she could hear it

for pain is such

that one would fear it

in silent screams

we all bear it

what are we to do



so within i pondered

all about it

it is quite real

i…

set her free . . .

set her free



her image of self was fractured

her thoughts were all askew

for how she truly saw herself

was in the eyes of you



you honored not agreement

made with sacred trust

layed waste to your integrity

and now it gathers rust



just who the hell are you any way

do you even know

you swim against life’s currents

trying to change the flow



on the…

the Garden of Even . . .



the Garden of Even



there once was a Village

that had a Garden

where nothing but Love ever grew

the Fruits were Divine

what was mine was thine

this was what everyone knew



and then came a thought

which some sadly bought

that i was different from you

and to all of dismay

came forth the day

when this paradigm then became true



the children were confused

and some were used

to further the separation…

my beloved



my Beloved



oh where, oh where is my beloved

where has he gone?

my heart weeps in anguish for His presence

my thoughts leaps in anticipation of His arrival

oh where, oh where is my beloved



Deep within the core of my being

there is a place,

a small dark room

in the inner recesses of my heart.

it belongs to…

"be" all you can be . . .



“BE” all you can Be



i am consciously inhibited

by my own design

i realize my limitations

are all within my mind



i care not for fetters

or the fences about

so i challenge all doctrines

and my fears found in doubt



but i do somehow realize

what’s dark does hold treasures

what once was a taboo

has transmuted to pleasures



but that is not to say…

my box . . .



my box



why should i define myself

why should i live in a box

to deliberately exist within a room

where i have welded the locks



no, i like a life without walls

where i can truly live free

where i can indulge the possibilities

and be all that i can be



the finality of my reality

is i can speak life as i choose

you may object, but i say what the heck

what have i…

tommy



can tommy come out to play

can tommy come out today

that we can recreate

before we procreate

let beauty be our way



can mary please come out

with out her fears and doubt

let all girls and boys

embrace their joys

let our beauty come about



can johnny come play with me

in the gardens of the free

where we believe

in what’s conceived

will come…

those simple times . . .



those simple times . . .



they were simple times

in simple days

with simple people

and simple ways



no complications

between me and thee

we talked things over

or we’d imply be



brothers were brothers

and friends were friends

when strife arose

we made amends



i wonder what happened

to those simple times

when nickels had meaning

and…
