The Bro You All Knew

The Bro You All Knew ballad

Uploaded by Jarold Walters

He will grant you those wishes
And make them come true
In the blink of an eye
Gold and silver for you

The price you must pay
Costs more everyday
Not valued in money
Nor formed out of clay

Stolen and beaten
You watched everyday
Fooling all in my path
While my mother would pray

He gave me diamonds
Power
Silver and gold
He gave me courage
Strength
With Treasures untold

For I have no value
No longer have weight
A soul that was priceless
I worked to create

Too late for I’m sorry
Too late for goodbye
Too late for I love you
Too late to ask why

The soul that was loved
My heart you all knew
The friend you all needed
The Bro you all knew

Your people can’t hear you
And your cries are unheard
Now Your bruises and peck marks
Don’t seem so absurd

Where is my treasure
Where is my soul
Where are my babies
My riches untold

All I Unread

All I Unread short poem

I unwrite a song for she, a gratis homage. Questioning imperils the sky, clouds would not weep. A cover-up comes to quote scriptures the meaning of deployment. Was I feeling smug after counting the pages of unread death? ———————————————– I

All The Griefs

All The Griefs short poem

The mysterious rival: suffering of resignation. I am reading myself for the surrealism of life, juxtaposition of love and hate. Another blast went off. White rose and black rose in the same garland; ruins of truth were older than lies.

Let It All Hang Out

Let It All Hang Out long poem

Audacious says the eyes of blue green black and shiny leather from head to toe, you sexy thing, you sexy thing well and today a new love has found its way to my heart and nothing nothing’s gonna go wrong,

We All Are On Our Own

We All Are On Our Own short poem

It was a dark evening, the sun already gone, clouds were turning black, only few houses’ lights were on, Rain had started, sky was ready for a thunderstorm. I saw in the street, a girl waking alone, she was slow,

Defying It All

Defying It All short poem

Keep me there forever, In that fine line of your smile, Keep me there, my precious, For I feel like staying a while. My image is in shards, I wince when I touch my face, Death quietly spreads it gallows,
