    DEPRESSION

    It's far from fairy tale
    hidden inside us
    Fills us all with torture, from time to time.
    A weapon that finally breaks us all.

    It turns each day into nightmare
    Sometimes leaves us out of sight and out of mind
    Depression it preys on anyone,
    destroys our body and soul
    Loosing each time the strength to fight back

    Depression!!
    A monster that cannot be seen,
    without Mercy, it consumes us whole.
    Deep inside us it breeds evil.
    Leaving us sometimes, breathless

    DEPRESSION

    I became insane with long intervals of horrible sanity

    I still hear you speak to me
    I feel your presence by my side
    I loved you so much
    No matter how much time it takes
    I will think of you from time to time

    As life begins to clear
    I gasp aloud at the realization that you're gone
    All I can hear my heart say is;
    Forget his face
    Forget his hug
    Forget his memories
    Forget everything about him.
    But then I realize his love was so pure
    And their is no one to replace him.
    If only I had done the things I should have done to keep you
    I wouldn't have lost you.
    I feel empty and lonely
    I try to move on believing that time will heal my pain.
    Alas, I am dying slowly.

    THE MONSTER IN ME

    I strive so hard to know myself
    To discover the real me
    My thoughts and feelings so confused
    There is someone scary living inside of me
    The monster
    He ask of someone I cannot be
    You can't believe the things I hide
    The thoughts that haunt my mind
    The misery I hide deep inside of me
    The monster
    He wants to cast me into his mold
    A replica of his soul, I'm forced to reborn
    To grow devilish horns
    The urge of sheer thirst for Blood
    The monster inside of me is called depression anger and anxiety
    The one's I love hate me
    I try not to create pain, so I feel happy
    But the dark mass enslave me
    I hide in the dungeon of my own personal hell
    But like the hand of a full grown man it chokes me
    The tears that roll down my check
    Flows down creating a mirror where I can see the monster
    I try to close my eyes
    So I don't see your face
    But With the reflection of the mirror inside of me I see you
    This monster you cannot see
    It lives inside of me
    it breaths inside of me
    It consumes me entirely

    POETRY

    In you I find joy
    In you I pour out my feelings
    Without judging my flaws
    You took me the way I am
    In my broken and shattered days
    you help me put words together
    You help me describe the world I found myself in
    You gave me the opportunity to fall in love
    My pen and book are my best companion
    In you I find solace everyday

    WE HAVE BEEN GOOD FOR WAY TOO LONG

    If our first Day could decide
    Then you should be my missing rib
    The glance and thought of you left me me staggering every hour
    You occupied my whole heart
    Like a child I loved you endlessly
    Time passed and days rolled into years
    We hung out together in the best places of the world
    We shared pains and happiness
    We took pictures together to keep memories
    Memories we had was way too long
    Longer than Methuselah's age
    Just a little bitter experience
    You left me staggering again
    You broke me into pieces with your words
    Your actions left me bare like a forbidden fruit
    I hope you remember we have been good for way too long
    I hope you do remember all the good times
    And when you do, you will run back to me

    BE KIND

    My makeup might irritate you like a poor beggar on the road begging for a square meal
    My color combo so shattered like that of a mad man's clothes
    Down to my lips as it reads BE KIND, yes be kind to all sundry
    Help that poor beggar achieve a square meal.
    Let love lead, let's love others as we love ourselves

    To The White Fiend

    Ten thousand scores ago
    Like a thief
    You invaded us

    Uncovered our skin
    Left us bare naked
    And discriminated our color
    Termed us barbaric

    You never looked like human
    A civilized man you are
    You only knew book but you never knew love

    You mounted our land
    And climbed the Bombax
    You explored us of all
    And plundered us
    And killed the sunbird

    We accepted your superiority
    You sowed in us the seed of civilization
    Africans were happy
    But they never knew they were dying
    You splashed us holy water in our cringing brows

    Like a man on a mission
    Who never understood our culture
    You were satisfied
    You fled
    And left us broken

    New Friend

    Pulling a new friend into my lines is a form of balancing him
    It's a ripple on my ink but I had to try to make it so beautiful
    Ariwa to my book you're a new spirit and a new energy
    Do not expect me to paint you perfect
    A never serious guy
    A faithful lover
    A football addict
    He adores nature
    So creative that he carve out the best in all
    A great conqueror and a survivor
    He's strong not rude
    Kind not weak
    Humble not timid
    Proud not arrogant
    Always focused and happy
    Ariwa is a Creation far from what you've seen before
    Tall, handsome, dark skinned
    Pours out his emotions with his ink
