You are the one that knows how my heart beats from the inside.
The truest love of my life.
I won't always get it right.
I'm sure as the years pass there will be the occasional fight, a war of words.
Know I only want the best for You, no one will love you the way I do.
You are my reason for being, the light guiding me through.
I will always be here for you, as only a mother can do.
I held you in my arms and swore to show you how to live.
Give you attention, love, and discipline.
We were going to have the father-son talk.
So, I can explain how the world really works.

Let me show you its beauty and faults.
Here let me show you about manhood.
Always remember, that there is nothing thicker than blood.
You don’t choose your family; it chooses you.
Honor them and protect them at all cost.

Being a man is about showing respect, dignity, and self-control.
You must resist the urge to eat the marshmallow.
I will be here for you, so you can learn to live
independent, free, and always standing upright.

Never bow your head to indignity and cruelty.
Never let injustice corrupt your ideals.
Get an education and learn how to think.
Don’t ever let others sway your beliefs.

Learn to compromise when working with others,
but never fall victim to the pressure of the majority.
So, let's talk now about politics and unjust laws
because you are brown and you are starting at a loss.

I sit now under this sun thinking of you.
Wishing we did have that father-son talk.
Wishing that I had a voice of wisdom in my life
explaining the importance of the little things in life.

But no matter now, you are gone.
I am standing upright but alone.
I am finding out about the world on my own.
I spoke a eulogy to family and friends.
I spoke about the things you should have said.
The father-son relationship or lack thereof is influential in the way young man relate to the world.
Rousseau
I desire
In a heat of summer

Zeno
Disregards
My triumphant return

From wild brush
Sudden wilderness
Harsh temperatures

The north
Or south
Anguished by gold

Needing a solid
Fixation
Condemning love

Validating the truth
Of my delinquency
Letting death overcome life

He was so pretty
The scion
My child...

So pure
Like snow
With the name Napoleon

He was mine
My son
Natural blood

Chelsea
The rose so cold
Living in a spring of chill

Where is the love
We once shared?
It has to be rotting in the ground

All is gone
The money
My booze

I want more
Something substantial
Not hunger

Nor your whining
I hate
And fear the searing leach

That you have become
My bonus from life
Is this

Trouble
An uncontrollable
Falling out

I revise
God's device
Informative drive

I have to run
Baby
To the bay

With torrential rain
Sudden winds
Hateful lies

I have no explanation
Her name is Betty
And contrary

To happy endings
With a tome of reality at ready
I contribute to life

By saying
That...
I hate you
Love is abstract ,so it attracts.
One feeling  , universal  to all living beings.

Plants ,loved and nurtured ,swing and sway to the music played .
Holding roots, withstanding storms ,Going lush green when truly loved .
Bearing nuts and berries or flowers in bloom .
What a sight to behold .

Animals , you feed them ,pets or non pets ,they follow you everywhere ,
Wanting to have more and giving back even more ,Love that is .

Humans , blessed of all the beings,
We can express  ourselves through thoughts and words .
Love we receive from and reciprocate to
parents siblings spouse children friends and all fellow beings .

It's true that some barren fields do not yield
Should it stop one from looking beyond,
There are greener pastures waiting to be found.
God's ways and love is profound.

If I could , I would be a floating pontoon to the many lost souls ,
Bridging their path and holding them together,
Till eternity !!
Coz love in abundance I have found.
Have shared this earlier.
Forget my
Ill love
Interest
Boring message

Eating crumpets
Under
A falling of stars

Son
Run from
The fork

And sign
My plastered

It is
Revolting
To the eye

Maybe the sight
I cannot deceive
Pretends to be lost

Family
With weight
Has fallen

Shall I forget that night,
my son, shall I forget
the sight of you?

Shall it stay
in my memory forever?
Never to go, always

conjured up
at the least hint
or smell or taste?

Your death
such a waste,
so unnecessary,

others neglect,
no oversight
or unforseen accident,

just that plain
and simple, neglect.
Shall I always remember you

as you were that evening:
puffed up and hard of breathing
and tired and strained?

I want to remember you well,
as you were before that time,
your humour,

your Stoic life
and mind set,
that quiet wisdom,

those eyes and smile,
but always returns that night
and you unwell,

and unknown to us,
you dying.
Shall I forget?

No, my Son,
not yet.
A father talks to his dead son
High he rode, high above,
no one to hate
in the clouds, no one to love,
lost in thin, ensnaring fate,
he fitted heaven, hand in glove.

From his perch,
at YHWH's ponderous side,
he would lurch
like the morning tide,
reaching out to clutch.

sullen of face,
mesmerised by YHWH's poignant glare
he failed to trace
in the ancient one, infinite fear,
The old one with infinite grace.

They played chess under Sirius
drank wine near the sun
becoming delirious
when YHWH called him his son.
He yelled back: 'You can't be seious!'

But now, in his failure,
the two rarely speak,
for god he's now a blur
a loser, hopeless and weak,
a blunderer and cur.

'Dad', he says quietly,
'there's plenty of planets around
i can visit each nightly
with one hop, and one bound.'
God acknowledged him but slightly.

God nods in the sunshine,
not listening it seems,
now senile, snorting a line
the ancient one dreams.
It will, he thinks vaguely, all be fine!

When Mumma's gone,
no one would try to understand you sadly
voluntarily,
no one would bother with how you'd feel,
so take good care of yourself
'cause else no one will ever will...
they'll fit you into their own motive,
so you navigate quickly,
and play them in instead,
don't fall for it...
doesn't mean you're wrong,
doesn't mean you're always right
I won't be there to tell you
but I'll watch you silently no worries,
'cause you're forever partly mine...
...
--no one would go comfort you,
when you feel wronged,
when the world doesn't go your way,
no one would nudge it to spin for you...
no one to rely on,
no one to go to,
no one to shelter you,
no one ready to defend,
...
but my wisdom is with you,
a ready made weapon any day...
for you to move on,
for you to go on...
and pass it on...
'cause you know I do
Love you
and I keep my words true

So ...

What Does ... Love ...
REALLY Mean .... to you .... ???

Your Lovers' .... Touch .... ?
or the things they do ....
that make you ... " Feel " ...

Your Love is ... REAL ... ?

Well ....
I've said before ...

that ... " Unconditional " ... Love ...
came from ... My Mum ...
and that's for ... SURE ... !!!!!

A Love of ... STRENGTH ...
Right to .... Her ... END.
that now ... " Transcends " ...
BEYOND ...... Her Death .......

I Love You STILL Mum ... !!!!!!
because Your Love ... STILL RUNS ...
Right through .... " My Veins " .... !!!!!!!!!!

and keeps me ... Sane ...

Even Though ...
Your Body's .................................... gone .........................

Your Love for ... ME ...
STILL Keeps me ... STRONG ...

NOW THAT's Love ... to me ... !!!

UNCONDITIONAL ... Love ... !!!!

But ....
What about ... YOU ... ???

Does Love ... consume ...
The Air .... You Breathe ... ?
or ... Play a tune ...
to a ... DIFFERENT ... Theme ...  ???

For some ... it seems ...
Some ... NEW Nikes ...
or a ... Diamond Ring ..
that Blings' and BLINGS ... !!!!!
is the kind of ... " Stuff " ...
They choose to ... LOVE ... ?!?

Or a ...
NICE ... Sports Car ...
with a home that's ... LARGE ... !!!

Where LOVE gets ... SCARRED ...
when things get ..... HARD ..... !!!!!!!

But ....
Who am I ... to say ...
That's NOT ... Okay ... !?!

Love can be ... DISPLAYED ...
In ... MANY Ways ... !!!!!

Well Love .... to me ...
FILLS ... " empty plates " ... !!!!!
and ... " Does NOT Feed " ...
Off ... EXPENSIVE Tastes ... !!!!!!

Love ...
DON'T WATCH ... Face ... !!

Or ...
Colour or ... Race ...  

Love Finds ... NO PLACE ...
To ....... Sep - ar - at - e .........
because of .... HATE .... !!!

Love ... elevATES ...
and ... Infiltrates ...
A Place in ... " Hearts " ...
So that .... Hate ....................................................... Departs ......

But Love Can ... HURT ... !!!
When Love ... FILLS URNS ... !!!!
Or FILLS .... "A Hearse" ....

because ... That Love ...
is for ... " Someone " ...
whose time ... has come ...
to face ... " Questions " ...

Questions like ....

"Son, what have you done
within your life
to earn a shrine
up in the sky ?
Have you done enough
to not get dumped,
in the devils' home
where evil roams ?"

There's Love There TOO ... !!!
Don't you be ... Fooled ... !!!

In Hell ...
Love Still ... Unsettles ... !!!!!

The ... HORNIEST ...
of .... " Devils " ....

Leaving them ... DISHEVELLED ... !!!!!!

and then ... Makes Graves ...
For Hate to .... " Lay " ....
and Fade ..... Awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy .....................
from ... Dormant Brains ...

It's NEVER ... TOO LATE ...
For Love to ... AWAKE ...
A Body and Soul ...
that is ... HATE Controlled ... !!!!!

So what would Love ...
say to .... Hate ....
if they had a ... Debate ... ?!?

"I understand,
you nurture war,
so, exactly what cause
are wars good for ?"

"Well they're good for......."

"Whoooooaaaaa !
Hold on there bro,
that question was,
a rhetorical one,
I'm the Oracle son !
Wars like you
are clearly dumb,
and lead to news,
that leaves mums numb,
when they have lost,
daughters and sons !
That's quite a cost,
for war actions !
I seek PEACE and UNITY !
Better scenes, than blood on streets !
I AM BEAUTY, don't you see !?!"  

See ....
Love DEFINES ...
Those Happy Times ...
and has ... NO PRICE ...
or things that ... SHINE ... !!!

While ...
HATE and WAR ...
as I said ... Before ...
costs ... SO MUCH More ... !!!!!!
Than Securing .... Shores ....
when souls are ... " Mourned " ...
for a ... BOGUS Cause ... !!!!! ...

Soldiers ... SHOW LOVE ... !!!
when Shooting ... GUNS ... ?!?

MISGUIDED .... Love .... !!!!!
from those .... " ABOVE " ....
whose love for ... POWER ...
Makes them ... DEVOUR ...

ANY Currency ....
to FEED ... Their GREED ... !!!!!
Like .... Count Dracs' ... Breed ... !!!

What part of ... " Love " ... ?
says ... SPILL SOME BLOOD ... ?!?

Or .....
Learn to KILL ...
for ... Dollar Bills ... ???

Love NEEDS ... NO PAY ...
to ..... ELEVATE .....
The minds of brains
from .... Mental PAIN .... !!!

A Smile ...
and ... A Joke ...
Can Help folk ... Cope ...
to deal with ... Stress ...
and ... Ignorance ... !!! ...

..... Forgiveness .....
and Love ..... Deflects .....

THOSE ....
POISONED Darts .... !!!
Aimed at ... " The Hearts " ...
of ... " LOVE FILLED WILLS " ... !!!

Who'd rather ... CHILL ...
Than get ... " Caught Up " ...
in stuff that's ... DUMB ... !!!!

Like ...
Pulling GUNS ...
To Prove ... You're TOUGH ... ?!?

LOVE ...
Can be .... ROUGH .... !!!!!
and be ... MESSED UP ... !!!!!!

But ....
SHOULD NOT ... Lead ...
to ... "HATE-FILLED" ... Deeds ... !!!!!

You see ...
LOVE .... " concedes " ...
and walks away .................................................................­...

So that it can .........................  B R E A T H E ............................ ! ! !

and ... Find a way ...
to ... RISE AGAIN ...
and ...... Dismiss ........................................................ Pain ............ !!!!!!

Love ... SUPERSEDES ...
Petty ... Jealousies ...
and QUICKLY ... Denies ...
The use of ... LIES ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love IS ... DEEP ... !!!
Love IS .... ME ..... !!!!!

Love IS ..... YOU .... !!!
Love IS ... COOL ... !!!!!

Love CAN ... "  Move " ...
and Love CAN ... " Soothe " ...

and MOST of all ...

Love is ... THE TRUTH ... !!!!!

I guess that's why ...
I write ... These Rhymes ...

To Prove that there is LOVE ...
In .... ALL OF US .... !!!!!!

These words have come ...
from .... " Up Above " ....

So ....
I now give them to you ...

with THIS ....

My ...... " Love " .......
A suitable subject for .... Valentines week, even though we've already had a Valentines Day Massacre over in Florida !!!!! Love has many forms .........
I wish I could stay by the sea again,
Watching it swallow your tears, rising tides,
It’s funny how you use to wipe them towards your tiny chicks
And pretending to be okay.

I miss how you use to bit an apple,
Leaving tinny teeth marks on the side,
How I watch you finding your way to it seed.

You taught me life,
Never miss wrestling on Sunday,
Always ready to play Marry go around any second.
I remember watching you trying to fit my hat
Pretending you are the granny next door,
Swinging of his chair every morning
Just to let the summer sun worm his heart.

I wish I was there.
Watching you growing,
Now am only left with memories
Memories of how life was going to be if I didn’t join the army.
In battle field, every time I pull a trigger my heart commit suicide.
I wish I could tell you, all the things I learned about life.

If you get this latter just know I learned that.
I daddy loves you.
