Rise up

Marcus Garvey,

Nelson Mandela, 

Errol Walton Barrow,

Martin Luther King Jr.

Viola Davis,

Shirley Chrisholm,

Rosa Parks.

Does any of these names sound familiar?
These are some names of men and women who had paved away for us,

There taught us to be confidence in ourselves,

Them show us that no matter the color of our skin,

We can be come great, 

There taught us to embrace the color of our skin ,

And the jet black hair which look like tar.

Them taugh us we can achieve anything,

Whether  it a politician, inventor, doctor you name it ,

We are equal.

But most of all , 

Them taught us to be strong and to be a proud black person.

And don’t settle for less.

Memories

As I sit here looking at pictures, 

I wonder what happen? 

Where it all went wrong ?

one by one,

Sequentially,

Everyone leaves ,

just leaving you with pictures and memories.

Do not worry them say,

We got your back,

We all in this together no matter what.

Phone calls becomes less frequent. 

And conversation become shorter on social media. 

No hey, whats up or how was your day?

Sometimes you wonder if anyone cares.

But you’re ignore or get one answer reply,  

Like if you’re a bother.

Friends or family is with replace with youtube to make you laugh, 

Strangers on Ig that make you feel welcome.

Radio to entertain you with current affairs,

Facebook to keep you uptodate.

you try to make new friends but everyone have a circle!

No new friends them said.

So you just sit down on the outside looking in,

and realized life is not the same,

people change and people go on with life,

Although you wish everything will remains the same.

Journey of the Seasons

Spring is the beautiful birds that bring that wonderful sound to your ears,

Summer is the warm sun which kiss your face daily,

Fall is the wonderful trees that change into various wonderful colors

Winter is the cold days that turn into night.

For  two years and half year ,

I see and hear the various transformation of the four seasons.

It is a wonderful experience to enjoyed .

It bring excitement and  wonder what each season does bring each year.

Nature is an interesting phenomenon

It  can taugh us lessons

It can taugh us no distance is far enough

It can bring people together from far and near

But most of all it can be surreal.

Thank for bringing me  on the journey of the four various season

Lessons

People come and go,
Some teach us a lesson.
While some leave an empty place in your heart.
You had taught me to be patient,
Although you was the opposite.
You taught me how to relax and enjoy the moment.
You taught me how to be happy.
You taught me how to love myself and embrace my flaws.
You taught me that in every negative there also a positive.
You taught me to believe in myself and failure is a chance to begin again
You taught me so much , you don’t even know how much an impact you make.
In fact I was attached to you like a leach.
That you leave a empty hole in my heart .
That you can hear it like an empty barrel
I will never forget you and you will be always in my heart
Love you

LIFE

As I sit and ponder
What,
Why,
Where?
What did I do wrong?
As I sit looking at the ocean talking,
With waters streaming down my face.
I whisper a little louder.
What did I do wrong?
I then ask to no one in particular,
Why me?
I know you not supposed to question yourself
But why me?
With my eyes becoming cloudy,
And the waves crashing against my ears.
I look across the oceans,
And a voice say,
what you see?
water?
water?
Where to?
There no end.
Therefore, you should ask how?
Ocean is the endless possibilities,
Where there is no end or beginning
Same as life.
