Change in self. Change in others. Change in opportunity. Change in setting up the next generation to surpass the successors of our own. Change in heart, mind, and soul.

LOVE IS WAR: TRUST ISSUES
Desire Apr 2019
I wonder what you think about when you lay down next to me... When I sleep, do you sleep, or internally question me?

How quick do you jump when Im up and you see the phone was right next to me? You scroll and search, hope to find dirt, and continue second guessing me...

Sweatin me, when you taking certain things out of context, stressin me, when I tell you how Im tryna be honest, selling me, tellin me how you respecting my process, only to continue to do the same thing again and again like you obsessed...

Its not a sport, nor is it fun, when it feels like there's a gun, behind my back and at my head, wishing what we had was dead...

But you still not using words to talk to me or ask me first, to let me know what thoughts still linger, what doubts you have or your distrust...
You tell me all is fine; that you have nothing to say, then we go to bed at the end of the day

But still, I wonder what you think about when you lay down next to me...

Our oppositions are subjective, yet
we're subject to our opinions
but differences deepened by
developing diversity is false dominion,
proving one thing to be true:
Neither of us get the final rule.
Human supremacy is a construct,
freeing me to believe in a higher power
outside of me and you...

Desire Dec 2018
I grew out my beard.
I grew out my stomach.
My ears ring randomly.  
My eyes see things differently.
I speak or say less.  I move in silence.
I sleep in when I want.
I haven't touched razors since my return
nor rifles since the field ops.
I've grown in maturity mentally.
I've grown insensitive verbally.
I've grown to miss the uniform
and pride of belonging in a brotherhood;
I miss my extended family.
I miss the people, not the troubles.
I miss the gym, where others alike
flexed invisible muscles.
My days once had routine,
pattern, structure and rhythm.
Weekends full of workouts, worship, and beer.
Weeks full of work, blood, sweat, and tears.
I've grown in experience.
I've regained freedom as a civilian.
But the transition has been a grueling process.
Yet, I've grown to be grateful nonetheless,
as not everyone gets to go back "home" ...
(remember the fallen) ...
However, if I'm honest, I don't think there's ever
an actual adjustment...

They say, you never really know what
someone else is going through,
and what we going through is real,
its the same for struggles too.
I know life is full of issues,
challenges, and obstacles,
but tell me, when you face to face with it,
what do you plan to do?

Are you gonna freeze up, or
do you plan to make a move?
If life is short, and time is money,
each second is valuable.
No time to waste, everyday,
choices I make are unthinkable.
They say tomorrow isn't promised, so
I'm blessed to have seen twenty-two.

My life is full of the ups and downs,
from a broken home,
I saw my mom abused
with bruises all around.
Her mental health dropped so low,
I cried out to God like "why" or "how"
Drugs did some damage to her brain.
It hurts to just look at her now
****...

That stuff showed me how not to be as a man.
I learned how not to treat a woman
or hurt her with my hands.
The look of fear in my sisters eyes
as they screamed and cried -
Our brains are semi-scarred,
It forever left us traumatized...

But I look at this man who caused us
so much pain and harm.
When he was 7, his mom was
stabbed to death; he held her in his arms.
His father wasn't around.
Jail became his childhood home.
I don't justify his actions, but
things happen that we'll never know...

They say, you never really know what
someone else is going through,
and what we going through is real,
its the same for struggles too.
I know life is full of issues,
challenges, and obstacles,
but tell me, when you face to face with it,
what do you plan to do?

We all got stories.
Stories are life's language;
language impacts perception - our
own, others, and nations.
"Stories dispossess, stories malign,
stories empower, stories humanize,
stories rob and break dignity,
stories repair whats broken..."
Single stories are scanty.
All stories, stitched together,
complete the composition of you.
Many stories matter - yours.

what would people read about?
We all got stories.
Share them. All of them.

16 and pregnant, 17 with triplets,
19 with 4 kids, I don't know how you did it.

School, work, motherhood.
Way back then, we had it good.
Mind of a child, I misunderstood
what it took to raise us - but be
reassured:

You did the best you could and we know it.
Times got hard and we couldn't really show it.
You stood strong as you tried to keep focus;
Hid your pain and tears just so we wouldn't notice

all the mental battles you were going through.
I wish I manned up better to look after you.
Blind to the darkness that tried to dazzle you.
Didnt realize you was only tryna make it through

to the next day, you tried to pave a way,
for us to make it out them trenches and see brighter days,
Major struggles in the slums taught us major lessons,
To keep strong and move on, for that, you’re a major blessing

15 and stubborn was when I walked away
17, I signed them papers, 18, I left to train
19, & on my own, yet the thought
hadn’t hit my brain
It was at this stage of your life where things began to change. It was at this age...

School, work, motherhood.
Way back then, we had it good.
Mind of a child, I misunderstood
what it took to raise us - but be
reassured:

You did the best you could and we know it.

LOVE IS WAR: LONG DISTANCE
Desire Apr 2019
Long distance is hard
Hate sleeping alone
Awake throughout the night
Not holding your own

Overthink, toss, and turn
Tomorrow is here
How the rising sun beams
But your conscious aint clear

Cloudy and foggy
Full of emotions and memory
Missing the ones you love
Longing for their presence and energy

Expecting for the time
That you could unite
Unsettled until then
Trying so hard to fight

For that day to come
Close, in each other's arms
At last, the distance
Doesnt feel like fatal thorns

The truth is, of long distance,
Long distance is hard

One day feels like one thousand years,
one thousand years feels like one day,
doesn’t matter -- either way, I’ll spend,
a thousand more with you.

One day feels like one thousand years,
one thousand years feels like one day,
I meant it when I said, “I do”
I’ll spend, a thousand more with you.

One thousand days, months, years to come,
one thousand tears to wipe when they run,
one thousand rainbow smiles will shine,
through thick and thin, we’ll be just fine.

One thousand sunsets, stars, night skies,
one thousand hugs, high fives, goodbyes,
one thousand phone calls when I fly,
some thousand miles -- keep your head high.

One thousand thoughts clouding your head,
one thousand lonely nights in bed,
I meant it when I said “I do”
I’ll spend, a thousand more with you…

A day will come for our time to end,
one thousand memories will begin,
for every day we got to spend;
it’ll be the longest day in Heaven.

One day feels like one thousand years,
one thousand years feels like one day,
I meant it when I said “I do”
I’ll spend, a thousand more with you.

A Single Poem for Poetry
Desire Dec 2018
You don't love poetry.
You love being depressed.
Your writings are true and have influence,
but they're only depression expressed.

I respect how you feel,
and please continue to write,
but may we realize poetry's purpose
revealed, in its history, is to shine light,
on your entire story -
not just the ones that hurt.

Tell the world of who you are
and how you strive to shake off your dirt.
Highlight what helps bring healing,
because others are also depressed.
No one needs to be reminded of
their damaging stress that they've suppressed.

"Happiness is a choice"
I challenge you to loudly make that expression.
Poetry makes people happy;
Its an art collection of life-lessons.

Poetry is an art.
Its ideas, creativity, and feelings,
social and racial issues unveiled,
Poetry is revealing.
Its also reflection,
of past and present events.
Poetry instills future hope,
painting pictures,
It represents...
Its a praise report for the week.
Its the abstraction of ambiguous things.
Poetry can be figurative,
or an escape from our realities.
Poetry has history.
Poetry serves a purpose.
To single it in one direction
is a disrespectful disservice...
Do you really love poetry?
[Respect it]

Plot twist: You are poetry. Replace "poetry" with your name in the poem above and reread it.
[Respect yourself]
This poem is not intended to degrade depression. Depression is real. Depression exists. Depression is deep. And so this poem challenges all people to see life in a different way or different light, the same way poetry can be seen differently, and with a change in perspective, may one choose happiness. Depression is real, and so is happiness; happiness is a choice. When people move away from all the pain in their lives, and think about moments of joy, they can experience, again, the feeling of being uplifted...

THE STRONG HAVE SCARS
Desire Jun 2019
16 years behind prison bars -- you came home
and not once did you show your scars...
from the fights and sleepless nights, man
it must be hard, to survive a system so inhumane, so corrupt, and flawed...

Barely 20 back in '98 -- you ever wish
you can go back and take that day away? Wondering what life would be like if, at home, you stayed? Now pain echos in your brain since the past can't be changed... (but its ok)

You're a son - you sat in a cage
while your 3 year old son was home getting ***** trained; missed out on ceremonies, birthdays, and holidays. Relationships with friends and family faded as you aged - it
gave you lonely days...

But I remember the joy that overcame you
when we went up to visit - those days were our fave too -- We couldn't hug but you expressed your never-ending love, with 22 inch biceps, telling us to read books and stay tough...
(for that we thank you...)

We longed for the day you'd be free.
But we never understood or considered  the damage done underneath. 16 years of pain, struggle, and suffering. Yet, your story doesn't end with you drowning in defeat.

Certificates and college degrees.
Clinical Social Work and counselor for psychology. Leader, influencer, mentor, husband, and father of three.
I can't be any more proud of you, your healing, and the people you impact and reach (like me).

There are unknown scars that may never heal;
Holes in your soul that are ever real,
16 years behind prison bars -- you came home
and not once did you show your scars...
Instead, you showed the world how to
stay strong and be successful,
and for that, I am ever grateful.
Love you, tio.

I was a minor who grew up as part of the majority of minorities. Then I embraced a misfit lifestyle, believing Christ, the Messiah, holds all authority. I became a Marine and a married man receiving  more responsibility.  I'm becoming a medic, treating trauma and those who's lives need monitoring.  In the midst of it all, my entire life has been molded by this common theme: ministry.

Not the religious type, but the genuinely authentic, legitimate kind; full of humble and authentic servants and leaders through community;  Imperfect people pursuing positive change and holiness; its more than self-prosperity.  I call this community of people, Church, and these members I call my family.

My life ain't perfect, but its been a blessing to live life despite dark days, receiving unearned and undeserving forgiveness, mercy, and grace. My hope can't be "proven" real or fake, its why its called faith. So  may those who obey  through faith bring  peace, placing  hope on display. I am nothing without God.  My  love  for you comes from Love He sacrificially gave.  My heart, mind, and soul are transformed and influenced by His perfect ways. May the One whose might cannot be matched receive glory and praise, for His ways have given me, a newly-shaped life, that is, the least to say... Im ever thankful.  Amen [YAWEH]!

This is me. The  medic-in-the-making, former Marine, Messiah's misfit from the mass of minorities - ministry molding my life, even in the midst of where I'm moved to next. I  just want to obey, do, and be better for me, you, and future generations.  There's really no harm in this. You could disarm the hostile hits. There's good news (the gospel message) and my past, present, and future are moved by it! Be blessed!

Its one of those forever things,

Committed despite the distance
It was worth every mile

With God, all things are possible
We became lawfully wedded
Vows and promises made
Meant to never forget them

I held fast, you stayed by
my side, for better or worse
Making dreams a reality
Dusting off all of the dirt

A new year means more life
Its worth the celebration
Every day's a new day
For heartfelt rededication

Tobe said, "this love thing
just aint no grab and go...
You have to pour everything inside out
Pray it dont hit the floor"

Choosing to share life together
Becoming one through the process
Because its now 'til forever

DRIVING WITH(OUT) A LICENSE

You need some gas in the tank
in order to get to the gas station...
Sometimes you have to burn fuel to get more fuel... Just don't burn through it all
before refilling, and don't refill
without using some... You dont want to
burn out empty or blow up and explode...
Dont worry about speed, as its limits vary,
but finding balance over the
bumpy roads of life - the ups and downs -
thats where the best moments are made.
The bumps, holes, and uneven streets
are part of the route to your destination, racetrack, and life journey...
So if all you have
is a little bit of gas, just above the "E,"
its all you need to get from Point A to Point B.
(even flat tires are temporary)
(you dont need a license to live)

Wisdom Proverbs
Desire Feb 2019
"Do not forsake her, and she will keep you;
love her, and she will guard you.
Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
she will honor you if you embrace her.
She will place on your head a graceful garland;
    she will bestow on you a beautiful crown."

[Proverbs 4:6,8,9]

DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR
Desire Feb 2019
When I reach my end-state,
I hope to see the pearly gate
and see them streets of gold
in a place deemed celestial
                   a place of eternal beings
                   in harmony worshipping
                   the King of kings, by his grace,
                   may we get through,
to, or near the throne,
killed off my flesh and bone,
but spared my soul, so
ever thankful, eternally grateful
                  when I see the cloud descend
                  and hear them trumpets play
                  on the Great and Magnificant day
                  off we go to see this heavenly place
but until then, I'll live
in love and loyalty, hum-b-ly,
as I leave behind a harvest
for our children to reap
                 unearned and undeserving
                 forgiveness was freely given to we
                 making it my duty to live
                 a life that honors He
despite my own imperfect way of living
live honestly; despite your theology
live a life deemed honorably

Puppy Love
Desire Feb 2019
Gaze in her eyes. Gently rub her ears. Grab her softly. Graciously snuggle. Give her a kiss and talk to her sweetly. Keep it gangsta and real - stay true to the code of love. #NoLimits

MISFIT
Desire Mar 2019
I have learned to forgive, but how can I forget?
The memories are there, stabbing me like a bayonet.
I heard them say, "we were called not to live in any fear."
But so many fear to live the life they're called to - this is weird.
So much for being different. So much for being you.
Good luck following the trend & doing what they tell you to.
But I'm not gonna bash or talk trash or even laugh.
I'll be the first to admit, I've chased acceptance in my past,
but conviction made me sleepless. Something shook my spirit.
So I walked out of my comfort zone; a misfit on a mission...

WINNING ISN'T EASY
Desire Mar 2019
Sail over salty seas full of sorrows.
Soar above crying clouds full of pain.
Swim under dark depths of unseen tomorrows.
Still, somehow, a victory you may obtain.
So persevere.

The Way of Love
Desire Feb 2019
There's a bond, between husband and wife,
between father and son, mother and child,
Earth and life; more than death to do you part,
it kindles warmly inside; a never-ending flame
that brightens even our darkest nights;

It ignites when you stare in the eyes of your loved ones,
when you hear those laughs or see them tears of joy
from young ones; a substance we all seek,
larger than the lust we all long for; makes us feel complete
or weak at the knees, its what our souls yearn for,
from the soles of our feet, and the very tips of our toes,
to the tops of our heads, our minds modestly know; we
understand the need but see, knowledge, faith and prophesy,
to say the least, are incomplete, if you know not love,
you gain
nothing;

You remain as such -- just a nowt
Like a flourished flower -- wind wipes it out
And its place knows it no more
Without love, What are we made for?

If I gave away all I have - sacrificed my life and
breathed my last, but had not loved, then its just sad
It was all in vein. Life goes by fast.
Good works are good, but they're not good enough
Love takes compassion to remove all the cuffs --
We are responsible for our relationships
and for the fruit that result as the products;
Forbidden or toxic or rotten or empty,
Healthy or edible --  all evidently
Sow and you reap and you reap what you sow
Love is patient and kind and its anger is slow;

With no record of wrongs, Love rejoices with truth
Love bears all things, believes all things
Hopes all and endures too; Love doesnt boast or envy,
Its not arrogant or rude; Love's not so self-insisting
Love is all these things; How about you?

Do you reflect love or put it to shame?
Does love surround you or are you misplaced?
As I look in this mirror, making known this face,
Am I really the product of God's love and grace?

There's a bond, between husband and wife,
between father and son, mother and child,
Earth and life; more than death to do you part,
it kindles warmly inside; a never-ending flame
that brightens even our darkest nights;
