MAMA SAID

Leave a comment

Source: We Heart It

You don’t know me

Yet …

You are throwing

Hate filled

Angry

Words

At me

Chastising me

Berating me

trying to intimidate me

Mama said

There would be

Days like this

She told me …

“Sister, put on

fresh lipstick – red is preferred

straighten your hose

Adjust your crown

And …

Keep your head

held high”

Words like that

From people like that

Are meaningless

Attempts to

Boost their ego

By destroying yours

Indicate cowardly ways

Ignore them

Ignore their hateful words

Be the Better Person

And go on with your life …

Something to Think About …

Something to Think About …

Love is an enigma at best

It seems to be something much

easier to give than receive

Or…

Maybe I just pick all the losers

of the world to fall in love with

The ones who use me up and

throw me away like yesterday’s news

 

I agree that there is a fine line

between love and hate…

genius and madness…

Perhaps madness must

set in before love can be found

or at least returned …

Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 15

This week has seen several rainy days. Rain creates many different feelings, emotions, reactions for each of us. Use the picture to write your response to this week’s prompt.

 

Crying …

The world is at a loss

Too much hatred

Too much senseless death

Too much destruction

of the …

Mind…

Body…

Soul…

 

As I cry, so does

the World with me

Shedding raindrops

like tears of pain…

Tears attempting

to wash away all

the death

the destruction

looking for

the sun to

light the way

to compassion…

to peace…

to caring…

to humanity…

 

If only a few tears

a few raindrops

could change the

hatred of the world

and lead us as

humans to find

our way to

universal peace …

Selected Micropoetry

One of the many different forms of writing poetry is an outgrowth from Twitter’s limit of 140 characters per post. That is a challenge for writers to get a complete thought and create a poem in 140 characters. The following selections have been posted on my twitter account in the past couple of weeks.

I~

hand on one hip

fingers beckoning

from the other

A skirt swish…

and the dance begins

 

II~

 

A simple girl…

Shy at first

But…

Once she learned

his dance there

was no turning back

 

III~

 

… I dreamed of sweet

love in the afternoon

you were alive and

warm and delicious

 

… Reality was the

cold light of morning

 

IV~

 

… his hands

the touch of his

fingers

 

stained her memory

leaving fingerprints

on her soul

 

things were

never the same

 

V~

 

Shadows on the wall

tell me you are leaving

no need to look…

there are no goodbyes

there never are…

never will be

 

VI~

 

… those were the days

drinking wine at midnight

having a toke or two as

you read to me from

Kerouac’s On The Road

 

VII~

 

…early evening

blue velvet sky

memories…

her heart broke

all over again

 

VIII~

 

… LOVE

 

we all need it

women…

men…

to make us

giggle like children

in its wonder

 

instead…

all I can do is sigh…

 

IX~

 

Mama always told me,

“One day you will know

the fine line between

love and hate.”

 

I am finally there.

For Michael…

For Michael…

Shots fired
A young boy
Dead…
Needlessly
 
The decision given
NO…
Hearts broken
Souls rendered
Deep in pain
 
The crowd protests
Peacefully… 
Until…
provoked
 
Fires rage
Emotions are high
 
When will 
The HATE
END…

*NOTE: Regardless of how you feel about the decision regarding the shooting of Michael Brown, a young man died needlessly at the hands of someone sworn to protect and defend.  This is the tip of the iceberg nation wide … things must change.

Worthless…

Worthless…

I refuse to be sucked
into your sad and
troubling state
of mind
 
Tear me down…
Meaningless coming
from the likes of you
 
Tear down my friends…
The same friends you
suck up to daily
 
But…
 
Will stab in the back
at the drop of a hat in
order to push your
own agenda of
hate…
racism…
bigotry…
 
You are NOTHING
A NOBODY
A WORTHLESS
piece of humanity
 
Now …
with that said …
You have been 
eliminated from 
my existence
