Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds

Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds 4/12/15

If life would grant me one of my wishes then it would be for Him to
Give us all Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds with you
Now I would not be selfish and take up all of your time
Based on the family I would be second in line
Just to see you with that look that commands the attention of all
Or to hear your voice and record the call
So much I want to tell you, seems like forever since you went home to rest
We would not bother you Daddy but know that this life it is a test.
So only grant us  Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds with you
Please be so kind, it is the Christian thing to do
Daddy I know you watching us through the joy, the happiness, the sunshine and the rain.
Thinking forever of you Daddy and all those beautiful memories that you helped us gain
If only time were able to stand still and allow you to be near
We could calm our restless longings if just your voice we could hear
We only want Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds of time in this place
Your presence Daddy will bring so much joy to this space
I miss you like crazy and wish you were here
Just give me those Four Hours Twelve Minutes and Fifteen seconds Daddy to help wipe away my tears

I love you Daddy to life and beyond! Happy birthday to you!!!!

Who Are We


Who Are We?

Who Are We?
Shall we be what we dream of
Or is there more or less to be desired
Are we what the world sees?
A shell of encasement in flesh and bones

Are we who we choose to be unapologetically ME!
Who Are We?
Whomsoever we decide suits us
In our current state of being
Adventurous, Bodacious, Captivating,
and the beat goes on and on…
That is Who We Are?
Just Me…

image

From the Editors of Essence, 2014, AP photo

The Caged Bird Singer
She is the Caged Bird Singer
One of the greatest orators
Of all times
Her words give life to both rhythm and to rhyme
For she is… and forever will be
Authentically Ambitious
Beautifully Brilliant
Creatively Clever
Defiantly Determined
Empowering Encouragement
Fabulously Fierce
She is The Caged Bird Singer
An epitome of Poetry in color and motion
Her thoughts moved you like waves crashing upon the ocean
Graciously Giving
Honorably Humbled
Impeccably Inspiring
Joyously Jubilant
Kindly Kept
Lively Listener
She is the Caged Bird Singer
When she speaks the world is on pause
The things she shares always about the cause
Masterfully Motivating
Naturally Nurturing
Outrageously Outspoken
Passionately Poetic
Quantitatively Qualified
Radiantly Regal
She is the Caged Bird Singer
Miss Maya’s life gives life as it reaches your soul
The stories continually unfold
Superbly Seasoned
Timelessly Talented
Uncompromisingly Unique
Valiantly Virtuous
Willingly Wonderful
Xtremely Xciting
Youthfully Young
Zealously Z
She is forever the Caged Bird Singer
In body, in spirit, and in mind
Forever her light laminates and will always shine
~YoTrip 4/3/15

Happy birthday Dr. Maya Angelou

“What’s Going On” A Poetic Tribute To Marvin Gaye


This is how I honor the masterful musician Marvin Gaye #NationalPoetryMonth2015

What’s Going On?

What’s going on the question dear Marvin asked over forty decades ago

I sit here and ponder and can honestly can say do we really know

Mother’s are still crying so many tears of pain

Will they find a place of peace some sunshine after the rain

Our brothers they are dying  on foreign soils and lands called home

Some considered endangered species in the places that they roam

Fathers we call on you to not let wars rise up and elevate

In your hands are the keys to both peace and love to war and hate

People are protest marching  and carrying thought-provoking signs of the times

Seeking to make a difference and eagerly towing the lines.

So Marvin is asking and wondering  about what is going on in our world today

I believe he said it best when he offered that classic line

You…
