Love Me Too (2017)

Love me too,

Like I love you,

Cherish me,

Like I do you,

Hold my hand,

Like I always

Hold your hand

Hold onto my love

Like I hold onto your love

Please please

Love me too

 

Can’t you smile at me?

Like I do you,

Kiss me back,

When I kiss you,

Wish me a good day

When I wish you a good day,

Be good to me,

As I am good to you

Can’t please please please

Love me too

Just think of me,

As I think of you,

Dream of my love,

As I do dream of your love,

Feel me in your heart,

As I feel you mine,

Want me,

As I want you,

Please please please

Just love me too

 

 

Don’t make me cry,

As I will die before seeing your tears,

Don’t lie to me,

As your body will tell the truth,

Don’t do it for the Money

Because it may run out

Don’t live me for your friends,

As I will never be good enough,

Love for me,

Like I love you for you,

Please please please

Love me too

A Life in Rhyme (2014)

A life in rhyme,

In prime,

In time,

 

A dice,

So nice,

But with a price,

 

So strong,

Won’t be long,

But with a song,

 

A life in rhyme,

In crime,

In honey and lime,

 

In love,

With a curve,

But with a beloved,

 

A life to end

With a bend,

As that’s the trend

Poem for the Poet

Tomorrow, the sun will rise,

And it will not be a surprise,

As you will write about the politics

And the Economics

 

Write on the philosophy

And theology,

You will think of love

And a curve

 

You will see the world in your words,

Teach the lads,

Write about the sun,

And the clan

 

I know you will move back and forth,

From south to North,

East to west,

From the worst to the best

 

You will write about the beauties,

And the naughties,

You will inspire,

Those who require.

 

 

You will write and spite,

Yet in others delight,

Write on the law,

And the snow

 

But then they ask,

That you take off the mask,

They say it’s easier said than done,

And that for you it’s just fan

 

AMANDA

Amanda is the custodian of her culture,

And from the grandma takes the lecture,

She’s taught the value of virginity,

For that’s the measure for her dignity.

 

Amanda drops out of school for her brothers,

And to her parents that’s no bother,

She only has to know how to cook and tender,

And to please her husband with splendor.

 

Marriage at sixteen is not a question,

They call that her position,

Is it not an ugly beauty?

That they should all feel so guilty.

 

Amanda’s husband considers her a punching bag

He says she does nag,

Does she need to be circumcised?

For her  to be localized.

 

What about the horrific rites that binds a widow?

That she ll face in her husband shadow,

A hard polygamy is never at fault,

But for Amanda would face the volt.

 

How long will they carry this cross?

Amanda why can’t you strive to be your own boss?

Fight the cultural inflicted discrimination,

And show the way for the others in the nation.

 

Leadership is not her place,

For she doesn’t have the pace,

She always has to be subjective the laws,

Just to avoid the loss.

 

Amanda you to fight,

Have the courage not the fright,

There is a long way you have to go,

For equity  and fairness to flow
