You have been mine since your conception

If only you’d have known

My futile search was in vain

My patience tested 

For what is to be shall always find its way

I pray

You can forgive my foolish errs

And grant me forever by your side

Battle ready

Our love has endured much

I lay down my arms now beloved

And surrender 

The moment you said “I do”

The God smiled upon us

Knighted I felt among your royalty 

Entering into this communion

Your kiss the last I shall taste 

For I am yours


Censor Me

Do not censor me

For My tongue won’t lie on the day of judgement 

No matter your persecution 

I entered this realm alone

And shall return the same

The lashings on my back from your torment

Will heal into a beautiful design

A lifeline to my future seeds

Who will call upon in need 

My fist will still rise up

Even with shoulder crushed 

And a cross bearing it’s nails

It will be the ones who came before

Who will lift me

And mount my soul on its throne 

And with open cowry shells speak letters 

Defining the past present and what’s to come 

Life burning like a mystical dragon

Through the spirit of my spirit 

No don’t you dare stop my indigenous teachings  

Do not try to subdue me 

With a false idol that fits your controlling ways

Docile for too long

I fight back with an embraced truth

No don’t you dare censor me



Let me find my niche

Be it in the arms of a lover
Or a crevice in the ground
Maybe in words jotted down
On this or another medium
Allow me to paint my collective thoughts
On the canvas of my choosing 
Please don’t stagnate me
With empty promises of love 
Let me breathe an element other than oxygen
And exhale the boundaries which you set
You see I’ve known your type of adoration  
I’ve bruised from your opinionated fists
My knees tattered from your control 
I wish to open my arms
And embrace the ethereal 
Where my soul can worship all that is
Be it in prayer or in just being
It’s more than just seeking
It is becoming 
Who and what I am
Let me find my niche
