I have no control over what it makes me do..

I have no control over what it makes me do.. I no longer choose musical blues. What am I to do when I can no longer be true to music that liberates my soul? Have I lost control when I hear men crying about how their women treat them mean and sleep with another man….



Beautiful Words

Beautiful Words The poem I’m creating is no friend of mine. It tastes like ink and has way too many words that don’t rhyme or cooperate in any way unless I say it’s okay. This little verse is jealous of all the poetry tucked away until today, and feels the words I use in it…



A poem about my book, “The Mountain Will Cover You.”

AFRICA African preaches and rebels commit distasteful deeds that are common there. Without despair even though it’s against the law, they falsely accuse and often kill, massacre, kidnap, and torture kids without reprise, and every day in a whisper they say children are practicing witchcraft and those who don’t know better, throw the kids out…

Today is the birthday of English novelist, essayist, and critic George Orwell (books by this author), born Eric Arthur Blair in 1903 in Motihari, British India. In childhood, Orwell was an avid reader, but a neglectful student: his parents decided he would be better off testing for a position on the Indian Imperial Police force….



A Beautiful World

A Beautiful World June 24. 272 words Without any books, pictures, or art of any kind when as a running wild child, I wasn’t aware that beauty was all over the place. Upon awakening I had nothing to eat, so during the dawns early light, I foraged for food and occasionally I’d find hot bread…



LOVE – today’s poem
