Welcome to America


Water gone poverty in the rise

you gave the people of Flint nothing and told them lies

Heroin ODs and people who have been poisoned with lead

the government might as well have wished you dead

Babies get sick while white men get paid

Rick Snyder is hoping the Black race fades

Higher drop out rates come with it which isn’t a surprise

people not being able to leave which makes them feel paralyzed

Target practice and bombings go on

that our government inflicts strait from the pentagon

No one helps them no one seems to care

which means there is no hope for humanity

it’s not fair

This was written by my daughter

The season of falling

The Notion of Love

“I think the universe is conspiring in our favor,”
you whispered, smiling, as we walked across
the vast expanse, the call of autumn shook
the trees as leaves took their final dance in
elegant pirouettes, like a twist of magic with
their own orchestral beat. Today's forecast was
supposed to be thunderstorms, but here we are,
hand-in-hand, holding on to each other, in a
season where everything seems to be falling.
