My Cry For Mama…

People say that we can never live forever, but forever I will hold you.
Deep within my soul, wish I was there to console you.
My heart sheds many tears and many wounds still remain,
but I understand that God had to steal you from your pain.
Will things ever be the same, without your laughter and your wit?
I bet you’re talking Prince’s ear off, probably giving him a fit.
You were a force to be reckoned with, that we can admit.
But your company was grand, for many hours we could sit.
Ups and downs we experienced and hard roads we traversed.
But I already miss you yelling, “Get my make-up bag out of my purse”.
Strong willed and strong minded, pure power in your essence.
Now I long for the chance to spend an hour in your presence.
But your life is not yet over; it’s time for you to get your wings,
then fly as high as they will take you and let the heavens sing.
Yes, I’m going to miss you mama, that’s a fact that can’t be missed.
But I know God called you home, because you’re the next angel on His list…

Camouflaged Chaos

No one really sees the entity that is really me.
Sedating meditation keeps me from exposing my true character.
Using mental make-up to cover up those psychological flaws
that draws all sorts of drama into my karma.
They say that if I stay cool, calm and collected
I won’t be affected by these afflictions and
contradictions that creep into my reality
like a late-night love tryst.
I just want a slice of paradise after I’ve eaten
all of this bullshit that life has piled on my plate.
But they tell me to wait until after I die,
finally going to that big pie in the sky.
So, that means that I have to continuously
control this chaotic conscience that constantly
tries to convince me to chase my carnal desires?
Huh! And they wonder why I stay high, why I’m growing tired…

Heaven Sent

Do you know what it meant when I said you were heaven sent?

Do you feel like you’re a miracle or something a little more lyrical?

Like a living, breathing love song, singing the sweetest of notes.

Taught me how to love again with every song you wrote.

When I say heaven sent, do you picture your wings?

Because you are an angel with all the joy you bring.

No, when I say heaven sent, I mean you came straight from the essence

because the whole time you’ve been with me

you’ve been nothing short of a blessing…

New Beginnings

I could mack a whole nation with my machinations

but I chose the liberation of this population.

No hesitation. Confident about my occupation.

You’re witnessing the galvanization of our God’s creation.

The stimulation of the minds in congregation.

Now salutations are received at our inauguration.

Let the preparation begin for the celebration

divine meditation led to this revelation.

Spiritual levitation done with no perspiration.

No more segregation amongst the denominations.

It’s the annihilation of the devil’s incarnation.

Congratulations, Heaven has received your reservation…
