THE POET’S CORNER

When Death Died

When Death died I was given life When I accepted Christ Was when I became alive He defeated death On that very day Then took my hand To show me the way When death died Was the day I become free Therefore I can walk in my purpose And be who I was called to be Death, where is your sting? Hell,...

Finale

Oh the anguish.I can’t take these long hours of trauma anymore.Lord, rescue me.Egos and limbs colliding in a death match.How did we come to this?I’ve never met this person before who is a stranger to me now.It’s almost as if they took our bodies over to make us destroy...

What do you think of?

On a warm sunny day Being a Brave Is what most would say When 12 o'clock hits The Chapel sings the ode First step on this campus I was already sold These giant tress above me Even the staff loves me This is my HBCU Alcorn State University At the Trace or at the Ark The Convention Center or the Park Who...

The King is Coming

Time is not short. Time is up. The King is Coming. I can't stress it enough. REPENT! REPENT! Echos in my ear. So I must spread the warning. The last hour is near. Repentance is not a right It is a privilege. So please listen When you hear this. Accept Jesus now While you still can. Surrender to him And take his hand. If you...

Fact of Life

When things occur in our lives, don't change. When it's time for you to express your true emotions, don't get silenced by the winds of torment. "I wasn't raised to be open with my feelings," "I've never opened up to anyone before." These are what we call excuses ladies and gentlemen. Let it...

Back and Forth

He said, babygirl, you got a way with words. I said, no, I just know how to make them work. You can’t have the subject without the verb, Just like you can’t have the love without the hurt. I know it’s worse. You’ve heard it all before, you give him love and more and you put him first. The...

Aspects of Nature

You wrap me in your vines of protection. You hide me from harm. The drops fall a tinder chill upon my arm. The sun has set, the sunset fills my vision; what a sight to see as the world is in the distance. An eery wind blows as hard times approach. In this...

The Journey

It was more than just reading a book. It was deeper than just words on a page. It was much more complex than reading between the lines. As the chapters got longer, so did the story. But it wasn’t all about trying to finish. It wasn’t about being in a hurry to read. It was...

You Know Hurt

Do my eyes deceive me? I can’t believe this. How could it be this? The greatest pain I’ve felt is right before my eyes. I wanted you more then life itself. I’ve been done wrong, deceived, lied on and the list goes on. Liar, cheater, moron. But this pain is too unbearable. Whenever they spoke on my...
