My Love

My love is like a light
shining so gracefully
and ever so bright
why do it shine so
much you say maybe
because of that smile
each and every day my
love is pure as the driven
snow no matter what it will
begin to show I knew I was
in love from the moment that
we met I just didn’t know how
to tell you yet because your
beauty made me so nervous I
kinda felt like I was unworthy
My love is a candle just burning
for desire me and you together
that’ll only take us higher
so believe me when i say my
love last forever so long as
you don’t break my heart we can
make it through any weather.

What Is A Family?

Is a family someone who is always there for you ,
Or just when it’s convenient for them to be.
Is a family someone you can talk to about anything
Or will they talk about you behind your back.
Is a family someone you can lean on when times get tough,
Or will they make up some kind of excuse to do something else.
Is a family someone who will love you always unconditionally,
Or will they just say I love you without actually showing you love.
Is a family someone who will stand up for you when others are against you,
Or will they slowly ease away pretending that they don’t know you.
Is a family just your immediate family such as a mom, dad, brothers, and sisters
Or do they consist of many other members.
To me a family is always there for you no matter what.
Real family won’t talk about you behind your back and when the going gets tough the tough gets going.
Real family will love you without limitations.
Family will stand up for you when the whole world seems to be against you.
Family is not always just blood relatives but they can consist of whoever say they love you, and they show it.
Family is whoever say they will be there for you and are actually there when you need them to be.
This is my definition of a real and true family.

The Joy Of Pain (Ofuonyebi’s Sonnet)

I was sat in a limbo by rashness
Memory of Pain looking at me in the face
And laughed at my lonely sadness
And I had a greater pain without the grace

Then, I remembered that others live
Who had a pain more sorrowful
But they looked pain in the eye with a drive
And pain saw the answers so beautiful

Then, my freedom came from the conners
From the thought flowing from the flame of courage
Like a man sent forth as king’s forerunners
And the reason for my sadness got a new message

So, I rose from the ashes of my lingering pain
So, I song a new song like a happy new rain.

I Will Fall

I want to fall into the tears
of god
and rest beneath his salty cries.

Don’t wake me.
I rather die
while in the midst of beauty
in the midst of power
the midst of cleansing.

Push me away
into the middle of the
open cries of life.

His hand will raise me up.
And as I look down, I will
see the reflections of the skies and the heavens,
not believing until
I look above and see the same.
Light be bright
and blind my human eye
as I am carried outside.

I want to fall into the tears of god.
But he has yet to cry out my name.
So I stand
in the water, the tears that he has cried
for all the others who have fallen
and have been carried;
and wait
until he cries out my name
and then, I will fall.

Conversations

In the summer of 1940 the month of June there
were three bumblebees one from the USA. second
one from Austria and the third from Newzealand.

They all met in the month of June Buz Wuz and
Fuz were buzzing in and out of a cluster of
BLUE Flowers Buz said to Wuz how come your
orange and I’m black and the other Bumblebee
is yellow. oh yea Wuz said I think we all
come from different countries.

I’m a Bumblebee and working for my colony
how about you Wuz I’m here for the same
reason and yellow Bumblebee said.

The three of us got a Job! got a Job and so
they all said the Sky is the limit it blue
and our food is free.

Gee said Fuz I never thought of it that way.

The Raft Of Fire

The deepest sympathy, The strangest touch,
The love of a mother, To hate as much.
The love of color, The life with no pain,
A shed blooded tear, A heart to restrain.
The moments of laughter, The cries of joy,
The moments of anger that’s bound to destroy.
The hills that move, Every cradle shall break,
Love and chemistry I do not forsake.
A world where the rivers run cold, A long lost story, A secret untold.
A dash of thunder, the streams of life, Crucifixion”, we had to fight
Destroy the towers, catch your soul. Hold on to the fire & never it let go.

Unforsaken Witch

I do not dare consent your departure
For what I had felt for you was too strong
And I can’t withstand my heart to rupture
Even if what we had created was wrong

You began by cultivating our love
And soon I was to feed the beast inside
Strengthening my will to love from above
And I all but abide

With a simple kiss I have sealed my fate
With a simple caress my heart, taken
And my simple soul you began to chase
And your true self was soon then awakened

blessed be my soul, which is soon to die
blessed be my soul, for this witch will thrive!
