There are moments when I look back on our journey and I learn each day to appreciate
every broken promise,
because only then would I be able to love you the way I do
I place God between us and my love around you.
Maybe we will make it until tomorrow
At this point I am willing to start with at least that
Even though you are not really good for me…you still seem like a pretty good bad idea
This world is your stage…everyday is a new act or scene
You decide if you want to make your life into a Movie or just a Play
Will it be about adventure? comedy, drama…a musical… romance?
Maybe all of the above?
Who are your main characters?
Who are your extras?
If your actors let you down along the way, do not sweat it, just audition for replacements
Take your manuscript and write your best film!
After all, years later, while sitting on your porch, you want to smile at what you produced
Mek unu so bare face and bright!
Di people dem cyah walk in piece?
All inna broad day light unu a come tief dem offa di streets?
Unu do all sorta foolishness fe tek weh people pickney-
Unu ole emotional vampire!
Wolves in sheep clothing unu disguise unu self as employa
Bout opportunities for employment!
Unu wicked nuh brute! Preying pan poor people jus to sodomize our youths!
No conscience unu nuh have! –
Wukkin dem out, prostituting dem out, selling us like we a jus another item pan a shop shelf
Wen u ago look inna dem eyes an see a reflection of yuhself? Eeh?
See say we a human like you! Have a home jus like you!
Who is you fi come modernize slavery an tek we against we will?
I not sure what worst- being raped, abused or being killed
Unu ole murderer! Vampire! Ole wicked brute
Who is you fe come traffic we youth!
But I leave the Child Development Agency to yuh!
A leave the Government to yuh!
A leave the Women’s rights to yuh!
A leave the Police dem to yuh!
A leave the tears and the screams of every mourning and weeping loved one to yuh!
A leave the wrath of God to yuh!
Carry dem back! Me say fe carry dem back!
Carry dem back and Stop!!!
Sometimes I wonder if you wonder about me
or am I drifting in the back of your mind like the other useless thoughts?
Am I easily forgotten or have I stained a place next to your priorities?
But then again, I have answered my own questions…
I mean if you wondered about me, would I be here wondering if you wonder about me?
Maybe wishes really do come true
Maybe someone is really watching from above
Maybe there is meaning in all that way we do
Maybe there is still hope for love
Just don’t stop believing even when it gets rough
Because even if a little faith is all we have, sometimes that is enough
May you have joy this season
and the days after that
To the challenges ahead I say…
Cheers! eat cake and get fat!
Surrounded by your tears and I have already been swallowing mine
I can’t even swim away
This pain has taken me under
and it seems no one really notices me sinking
Throw me my lifeline please…
Her heart has been her biggest diary
Such emotions she feels no one will understand
She is complicated to many and crazy to the ones who tries to define her
But that is what people do when they can’t understand and she understands that
They know her name but not her heart and that is how it ought to be because such emotions no one will understand
So it is best she keeps her secret
keeps her heart….
After all, people never quite understood how to treat hearts
They somehow end up breaking it every time…and she knows this feeling all too well.
