VESPER'S FLOW
 

FLOWING LIKE A RIVER OF LIGHT

  while i do not think my poems contain any graphic or obscene material, i am fully aware that we all have different opinions of what constitutes something being graphic or obscene. therefore i request that only grown folks read my work. anyone under 18, go read a book and check back when you are of age. i'll be here.  all work is copyrighted. * For those who would like to contribute a poem or check out some cool literary links (especially those of african descent), please look below.

FLOWING LIKE A RIVER OF LIGHT
another phase of my creativity a place i go when u can't let me in and all i got is my breathe and my pen and the flow won't let me go this where i know i can be me Deniece Williams free from hypocrisy and the powers we let be who stick a flag on their car when it becomes the cool thing to do but turn a blind eye to everyday atrocities and yet scream "we are free!" not recognizing the stripes are the ones my great-granddaddy wore the stars are like the stars in the eyes of  my grandmother when she bore my progenitor the pole symbolic of our climb only to have u bust us in the head time after time again and when all these thoughts besiege me and i need a release from the pain  i go to place when u won't let me in and all i got is my breathe and my pen and then i begin to write and flow like a river of light

no more whys
they dropped a bomb of realization on our nation/
we gasped with surprise...how dare they?/ many whys/wise
souls know that pain causes delusions/ ignorance is the root of confusion
they ended the illusion
the bigger you are, the harder you fall/ humble awakening for us all/souls whose only wrong was to fly across the unfriendly skies/ so many whys/ wise souls know that joy cometh in the morning/mourning for us not for the innocents' demise/ for now they are wise/ no more whys

eye RELEASE
Don't get mad at me 'cause eye don't believe in homogeny; eye mean you are you
and eye am me....naw, we ain't the same
and never will be.  eye can't feel your pain and you definitely can't feel mine.  so let's not waste each other's time droppin'  no false lines about how sympathetic we are to each other's cause
eye won't even feign sympathy; hmmm more like apathy
eye mean, eye care, eye just ain't losing no sleep
over your problems; don't seem that deep to me. maybe if eye explored things further......eye would understand but eye am too busy just trying to be who eye am.  a child of the diaspora who aska for no mora than what she due.....a fair chance.  can you empathize with that?  naw, eye didn't think so. so let's just let it go, release. now we know ; let's be separate in peace

EAR 2 EAR
things that make me smile?
when you call after i ain't heard from you in a while running my fingers through my nappy hair M'Dear's "honey child" floatin' on sweet summer air
marvin gaye or marvin sease homemade dumplings and black eye peas $20 lying in the screet  egyptian musk peach cobbler crust bee bop styles yoga meditation
old X-files
my King coming home
hot corn pone divine whispers from above hot and heavy sweaty sweaty
LOVE
yeah, my dear I got one stretching from ear to ear
come here and taste my smile stretched from there to heah

JUST SOME FREESTYLE FLOW INSPIRED BY THIS KING I KNOW
I couldn't for the life of me figure out why I was with you/
You weren't really handsome/not even to an unconventional liberal soul like myself/
And no one will ever mistake you for a gentleman/
The arrogance I could have done without/
Ditto for the airs and facades/
you cloaked yourself in whenever  we went out/
Didn't really have any clout nor anything you could brag or boast 'bout (except me, of course)/
But now I have finally figured it out/ See,  I needed to be with someone like you in order for me to learn to love me/ come to the realization I deserve so much more than what I was settling for in our situation/
And for that (if  no more)  you deserve a standing ovation/ I clap for you blessed man/
Cause now I understand/with understanding comes wisdom and wisdom knowledge they don't teach you that shit in no college
