Death of Democracy Published in Dissident Voice

Main Blog, Poetry
I was thrilled to have my poem Death of Democracy accepted and published in the May 28th online edition of Dissident Voice for their weekly poem. What an honor to have this piece appreciated and shared in this way. You can see the poem on Dissident Voice here at Dissident Voice. This poem was written in early May 2017 as I watched the rumbling of our democratic foundations and pondered how democracy dies, bit by bit, and will go the way of other powerful civilizations unless she is helped and aided by those who believe in her. If you like this poem, you may like my longer (epic length) poem called The Castle and Her Lady which is in Resist Persist. http://dissidentvoice.org/2017/05/death-of-democracy/

Whisper in the Wind (Poem Sample)

Whisper in the Wind (Poem Sample)

Main Blog, Poetry
Whisper in the Wind My hands glide across the keyboard and yet I stare at nothing Inspiration sapped by desperation What words can I even say? Does nothing mean anything?   My tears dot the “I” I cannot, I will not leave the keys Something may yet come forth But I’m not supposed to let it It isn’t polite to speak such things or in that way   Smile and wave that’s how you do it, get through it One more day Smile and wave   Stuff it down Cuz my irritation isn’t welcome here Never was Will it ever be?   Will anyone ever care to hear? That I’m tired and sometimes angry At the ignorance and lies At arrogance and pompous clowns Who have never lived real life…

Would the World Care?

Would the World Care?

Main Blog, Poetry
Here's a list with a couple more missing DC girls and the poem I wrote this morning as I feel some kind of way. After writimg this I channeled my emotions in the studio that morning. Whew! My daughter is 14 and if we were in DC this could be her. She's the one who did the art for the poetry book cover coming out soon. She is vibrant and thoughtful and loving and I wonder: If the world would care if someone just up and snatched her away? Would the world care if she didn't come home because she's black and 'they' do things like that? Would people search in droves like they do for girls with straighter hair and lighter skin? Or would her case and my pleas…

A Poetic Summary of Chosen

On Writing, Poetry
About Chosen: A Poetic Summary For millenia the Descendants have ruled Their power goes the world through Removing those that would resist Accepting casualties of the innocent Their greed and what they've will to do Without bounds they write the truth Maintain control while the planet breaks Point no fingers, take no blame The seven chosen before birth Face secret dangers of the Earth The World Consensus and UniCorps Knowing what will come, press forth Silence all who'd warn the masses They give the Chosen cause for action With Keepers and mentors at their sides They learn why they came into this life Genetically changed for strength and endurance To enhance natural gifts and performance To overcome the evil plaguing the planet To defeat the giants and restore balance In…
