A gift to you on my Birthday. Enjoy!


This piece is a piece of my soul

Which poured into my thoughts and then became this voice

I choose to perform short hand to capture that movement quickly

This piece is about peace because when I began to scribe

Imhotep ran and hide

Inside my soul forest fires became chestnut roasting

On an open fire

Thunderstorms became cleansing spring rain

I maintained balance

This piece is a piece of history and it won't repeat itself

I'll repeat it to strengthen my conviction to this craft

Perfecting the artistry of this ballet between paper and pen

This piece broke the mold of deception

Now I can be freely and see the trickery with ease

These words gave my pen purpose

As the ink permanently marks the pages

I wanted to replace the ink cartridge with my veins

So blood would become the ink and this piece would be given life

It would only be fair

Before this piece

I was unborn torn between life and death

Hiding in the womb of stealth and insecurity

Before this piece

My voice was speechless

My vision breached by past teachings

I was believing anything and falling

I kept falling in love with self pity

It would only be fair because this piece has paid the price for my mistakes

The greatest sacrifice this piece can make

Is taking my burdens, taking my cares

Taking my worries and then giving me poetry

This piece is selfless in maintaining my passion for the quest

This piece is the west because I rest when it draws nears

This piece is the east because I look to it for one more day, one more chance

This peace is the reason I breathe

The reason I take the next step

The reason quiet is kept during meditation

The reason I manifest joy

This piece is what I'll teach my little boy

Unconditional love

This piece has made the greatest sacrifice

Taking my concerns

What yearns and churns in my gut on late nights and

Giving me poetry
