Write
Let your mind ignite
Set your heart alight
With the truth in sight

Fight
Setting forth with might
Vanquishing the night
With divine light

Tight
Anxious is this plight
Darkness at its height
Echoed waves of fright

Write
Let your soul be bright
Breaking free tonight
Things will be alright

Injustice

She had passion fueled by pain
igniting her words with a sting
always mistaken for venom.

For too long she was expected
to be silent mimicry
like a shadow to be tread on.

Words would always strike
at the marvel that she was,
an embodiment of golden light.

It emanated from someplace
deep beneath her skin
a legacy preserved in her spirit.

When her peace was disturbed
currents of rage churned
often seeping over her eyes.

Her world would capsize
in a weary blur as she drowned
in too much sadness

She demanded to be corporeal
refused to be stricken
insisting that she swim.

But, the fire of her plea
and the glare of her glow
were felt and remembered.

Her incinerating stand
ignited fear in their hearts
as they ached to diminish her.

In the midst of their roaring anger
they mistaken her for the monster
that is their reflection.

Change

Invaded, degraded
An utter mess
Sedated and faded
I can’t care less

Outspoken, awoken
Where I reside
Broken and choking
Nowhere to hide

Pleading, fleeting
In need of change
Seeking and feeling
So estranged

Staying, praying
For the light
Laying and weighing
Wrong from right

Origins

Remember
Where you came from

and what you feel like
Do not forget the texture
Of your unique
composition

Remember the soil
from which you emerged
And feel it contained
in your being.

Remember the scent of ocean breeze
tangled in between
your kinks of hair
and your cinnamon sprinkled skin.

You still have
that tantalizing sweetness
that surrounds you
as your aura

Remember not to forget
to give thanks to the Love
that moulded you
and the Light that emblazoned you

Remember
Where you came from
