August 2014


I walked in the moonlight,
Where the Sun never shone.
The sight that I saw
Chilled me to the bone.

They say the saying’s false;
There is no love at first sight.
But it was in that place that I fell;
It was in the moonlight.

It was you, who I found,
As beautiful as could be.
That’s when love struck hard;
That’s when it hit . . . → Read More: August 2014

Barely Blazed

We change without our own consent,
And we present ourselves as new
With no real clue of
What to do.

What once was a telegraph
Became a photograph instantly uploaded
Into your Gmail while a female
Directs you to the nearest bar.

The world has broken chains,
Maximized trains, piloted planes,
Driving in the fast lane,
All in the name of economic gain.

Courage is something you say,
Or do.
Not a feeling.
Sometimes, you have to work up the courage
To say,
I love you.

Coal Miner

Black dusted,
Callused hands,
A tender heart,
He does his part,
He’s loved us from the start,
The tree he planted,
Is still thriving,
All because of him not caring about,
Black dusted,
Callused hands

Forgotten Voices

Like an animal caged in by
Hate, prejudice, and racism

Alone in the darkness
mute to the world around me

They say everyone has a voice in this world
I know there lying
Justifying the wrong does not make it right

Even if I had a voice-you would not listen
For I am alone, unloved, forgotten

For even I forget that I too . . . → Read More: June 2014

Ortley Beach was always my favorite place to go, I loved
fishing, crabbing, kayaking and the ducks and swans saying hello.

My Granny’s house was always full of family and friends, the food
and fun had no end.

I loved walks on the beach and sunsets over the bay, whenever it was time to leave I always
wanted to stay!

The Highlighter
Like a sun
bursting out of the sky
It’s bright color
Moisture like dew.

Ocean Beauty

Do you know the beauty of the ocean sounds?
The ocean goes shou shou!
The clear waves slicing the gust of wind.
Making the loudest swish.
The crabs are snapping towards the shimmering sand.
The baby turtles hatch and crawls towards their new adventure and life.
The glittery sun setting in the West its time for the new Moon to shine.

What Happened?

Holding tears back,
I walk into the school,
sadness overpowering me.
As hard as it is,
I know I have to move on.
Rooted to the ground next to my locker,
I ask myself,
what happened?

Taking my head out of my locker,
I walk into class.
Chaos at first,
then complete silence as I take a step in.
I hear the same question,
filling my head with . . . → Read More: May 2014

Her Favorite

Sundays were her favorite
The beginning of a new week
A fresh start
But more importantly
A day well spent with her family

Lately there was just not enough time in her day
Rushing here, running there,
Late to this and missing that
Except those Sunday mornings
Sundays were her favorite

Waking up to the smell of maple syrup
Feeling the warmth of the . . . → Read More: May 2014
