A Poem is Born

Not all poems are conceived in light Some of them are buried in darkness Surrounded by dirt and soil gritted teeth and clenched fists. Sometimes the lyric is a resurrection of rage a fire that is only quenched through spilled ink on blank pages. Sometimes poems are tears because not all compositions are conceived in … Continue reading A Poem is Born → Read more of this blog post »

“If they took all the drugs, nicotine, alcohol and caffeine
off the market for six days, they'd have to bring out the
tanks to control you.”

Dick Gregory
“Momma, a welfare cheater. A criminal who couldn't stand to se her kids go hungry, or grow up in slumbs and end up mugging people in dar corners. I guess the system didn't want her to get off relief, the way it kept sending social workers around to be sure Momma wasn't trying to make things better.”
Dick Gregory

Langston Hughes
“When a man starts out to build a world,
He starts first with himself”
Langston Hughes

“If you dare to struggle, you dare to win. If you dare not struggle, then damn it, you don't deserve to win.”
Fred Hampton

“You were born a winner, a warrior, one who defied the odds by surviving the most gruesome battle of them all - the race to the egg. And now that you are a giant, why do you even doubt victory against smaller numbers and wider margins? The only walls that exist are those you have placed in your mind. And whatever obstacles you conceive, exist only because you have forgotten what you have already achieved.”
