Curses

The curse of a powerful mind, everything I create becomes questioned while it’s being designed. “Should I say this? Does this sound right? Naw that’s offensive, naw that’ll make people think too much.” Trying to make complex ideas feel simple is the most difficult battle I fight. I don’t want to sound sophisticated. I want…

Love Wether it be pure or misplaced in envy, HATRED is the fuel that flies the planes of this world, forever contaminating our lives and causing us to fail in succeeding in our journeys. HATRED takes over and everything turns for the worse. HATRED causes wars be it petty or on a large scale, HATRED…

From fire, life grows

You were like a fire Ever so radiant, So so beautiful So robust and energetic Yet so vicious and vigorous in your combustion You ravaged everything in your path, causing forest fires and burning everything down Causing less and less desire and value with each scorching flame And I the earth, loved you, even when…

Take a sip

Still like untouched water in a glass your interface maintains a dull and uninteresting vibe yet when I move the glass shakes, and suggestions of life begin to flood my mind. What is seen is not always what is real, even the mirror can be deceiving. My curiosity mounts as I pick the glass up,…

Ancient Kingdom of Mali

As black History month begins to come to a close, let us take another trip back in time to the history we know little about. Let us remember that our history does not start with Slavery. that we are not limited to America, the Civil rights movement, the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter. Not…
