A Mother’s Lies

By |January 29th, 2012|

(Casey Anthony)

 

She drinks champagne

To celebrate her hard-earned freedom

Is it freedom she deserves?

Not in my opinion

She deceived and deceived

Till her objective she achieved

She’s free, completely free or so she believes

But what about Caylee?

Will there be any justice for Caylee?

Is this the end of her story?

And the beginning of her mother’s glory?

I have to believe justice will be […]

Fix Things

By |January 9th, 2012|

I want to fix things

Make things better

I want to encourage the world

With poetic love letters

 

I want to mend broken hearts

And weave marriages torn apart

 

I want to love all unloved children

And raise them as my own

Show them they are special and worthy

God’s very own

 

I want to mentor youth

Teach them how to lead

Help them find their way

So […]

Her Picture

By |January 9th, 2012|

She’s rich

She’s very rich

 

Everywhere she goes people want to take her picture

When she looks good, they want to take her picture

When she doesn’t look her best, they really want to take her picture

When she smiles, they want to take her picture

But when she cries tears, they really want to take her picture

 

She is surrounded by […]

Scared

By |January 9th, 2012|

It’s a scary world

That’s no lie

It’s a terrifying world

A soul is sure to die

 

When I think about the evil of mankind

Killing and hurting one another

Where is the love I wonder?

 

It’s a scary world and that’s no lie

When I think of my children going out there

I am terrified

 

I wish I could keep them safe in my […]

Invisible

By |January 6th, 2012|

You walk right by me

Like if I’m not there

Looking straight ahead

As though am not near

 

Can’t you see I’m standing here?

I’m right next to you

Am I invisible, camouflaged or see-through?

 

What’s going on?

Where did common courtesy go?

Why do we ignore each other?

I just don’t know

 

A simple smile; hello; how do you do

Howdy; heya; what’s happening with you

Any […]

Monsters

By |January 6th, 2012|

I can never quite comprehend

How easy it comes to you

Evil monsters, scary monsters

How do you do the things you do?

As though life has no value

 

You take, you steal, you kill

Destruction of all that is good and beautiful is your will

 

You lie, you cheat, you burn

You take what you didn’t earn

 

It makes me cry

When people die

By […]

Arms Stretched Around the World

By |February 28th, 2010|

I prayed for freedom

I prayed for opportunity

Now my good God has set me free

 

Closer to where my dreams need me to be

Arms stretched around the world

I am free

 

Born a girl of theCaribbean Sea

No longer limited by my small country

Out and about the world I see

A citizen of planet earth

I am free

 

The World out there

By |February 28th, 2010|

In my mind

There I see

A magnificent world created for you and me

 

Out there somewhere

There is a place where I belong

Those who live there

With me, sing a familiar song

 

I hear the music

Then I know

This is my place

My seeds here, I’ll sow

 

This is my home

Home at last

Onward, forward

Away from my past

 

Onward, forward

To sing a new song

Onward, forward

To […]

Disappointment of Man

By |February 17th, 2010|

I hate too much attention

I hate to be ignored

I hate to be judge or accused

I hate to be cheated or used

I hate not getting my credit due

I hate when you’re watching everything I do

 

I hate when you act like you don’t care about me

I hate when you don’t see what you should see

I hate how […]

The Truth

By |February 16th, 2010|

Damn the bigger man with the power in his hands

The unfair bully who rules the majority

Because of his financial security

 

Damn the unjust employer

Who seeks profit at the expense of others suffering

The truth they seek to hide at these so called Executive meetings

 

Where they discuss the future; our future

Where they discuss the future of their bank […]
