I see you, and
Know your heart,
The eye music
Is unconditional
No matter what
Our soul goes through.

I have a statement to make, with the purpose of invoking silence.
This, I write for the people I love and for the last step in my peace - with this.

There’s a few people in my community that are attempting to slander me and hurt my friends and family. These people do not know me, what I do, or how it’s done, at all. Yet with all that lack of knowledge, I have never witnessed such blatant and reaching jealousy. They may try to mask it and hide themselves, but who they are will be revealed in soon time. My conscience is clean. These hurting souls speak and bend lies based on things they go through in their own mind, what their imagination can conceive, or what hate they can feed. They are so afraid. They are so afraid, even of themselves. When people become riddled with insecurity, are exorbitantly frustrated, and feel powerless over the love in their lives - things like this happen.

I have made many mistakes in life, especially in the heat of the moment, and have taken many chances, but to be honest, I love it, wouldn't have it any other way, needed all of it. And I am krazy, krazy beautiful. My heart is good and I love to help all people, animals, and elements. I love to heal and listen feel with all my heart. Also, through any struggle or chance for reflection, I believe in taking personal responsibility, accountability, and will change accordingly for this is how we find greatness. Everyday, I ask myself how I can improve and work hard at it, this you can ask anyone that's close or listens to me. However, this statement must still be made, yes, and I do not apologize for being an easy target, for my light being loved and loud and full of life. As I was growing up there was a light that I wanted to turn off within, like it was too much passion or strength, unbounded, and I wanted to fly under the radar and not be noticed, but this is not possible for my soul, and eventually as we all grow to know our self and discover who we truly are, a graceful acceptance was found. For just as we cannot blame water for filling the bottom of a cup first before the top, or we cannot blame the sun for being warm and bright, we cannot blame our own light when it shines bright. Through my struggles in finding myself, I learned to sing, “This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let shine. “ Looking into your precious eyes (hoping you’ll feel them).

The people that know me, the people that love me, are already standing up for me. You’re love - because you understand a soul when you look into eyes, when you listen to the silent and undeniable sounds of a heart.
And yes, there is a bonus, for those that love me purely, as time goes on this will reveal itself, for my purpose and works of love in this life will live on until the end of time.

I must give respect to my roots. And though my love fails to do any justice to God, I love God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit for this is a covenant I have made since I was born that has been followed through by love and faith, our relationship, and with that, God has revealed himself to me in the most ineffable humbling and beautiful ways. God has accepted me just as I am and seen the best in my heart through it all, God believes in me and that gives me all the strength I need. I am so humbled by His love and grace that it hurts unbearably yet comforts infinitely. God has shown me how to receive love and blessings, giving the key.
Let it also be known, that I am completely accepting of all people of any religious background, sexual orientation, creed, or ethnicity, and accepting if you are not accepting, because we all have a unique story of how we came to be who we are and until we can truly understand that person and their path, we cannot decide how they should live their own lives.
The people that attack me, recently, have explained their absolute repulsion for Christianity (and Christians.) They have disparaged and vituperated most of the same people they speak lies to in our diverse and precious, sacred healing community.
I want to make this clear, I have nothing to say to them and will not feed their disconnected fire as it burns out.

It’s best when we let people trust in their own good sense, or let the heart and soul decide rather than slander about what is truth. I see through this and hope that others do as well. These people need healing, for they must have so much unprocessed internal and external hate and sadness in their hearts to do what they have done (and not just to me), for the actions and stories they claim to be proud of.

I have no need for vengeance because more than anything they need compassion. God will take care of my enemies, as He always has. And now, they are in trouble and afraid.

W Moments


She rides her bike through spring skies
and stops to help a hurt butterfly.
She cries when she finds the baby butterfly
will die. With soft songs she sings and stays
all day, missing work and dinner she
sings and sends comfort into the butterflies eyes.

She wakes up and feels like the most comfortable
soul in the world, wishing to stay cozy in bed all day,
and though she wakes up alone, she still feels loved.
She smiles just to be and cries because she's happy.

She feels lost to this world, she does not feel human,
it's like she does not belong here, on earth.

Unable to find peaceful rest, she hopes and dreams
and becomes broken again, again. There is no place
for her heart to rest, no place to feel safe.
Ready to die and go to Heaven, to find her true destiny,
and see what life truly is, to find a place where
she feels safe, with others like her.

Quietly Across


Softly, Pray for us to be the greatest writer ever : .
forreal, for anyone expressing life in the imperfect way,
to help those throughout time forever, with compassion, we listen.
Can you feel the eyes of those in need, lives that can be given
aid in real ways because we listened with the the power of our love.
Can you feel your eyes? Can you feel your soul yearn for this writing
sensitive enough to reach you at your most unreachable, to fulfill you, help you
in the most simple ways. Please pray, for we are all writers,
with or without paper, creating and receiving stories of life and
moments, inside and outside minds, combining imaginations,
perspectives and sacredness'. And who are we without the love
and glory of others? Every act of love that brought kindness
to your heart. Every plant, animal, water, every little subtlety
that gave itself for you. To help you think, feel, love, be,
to look into eyes and become complete. Whether we admit it or
not, we all want greatness in the way we live our life, the way
we dance and write the songs of life in our heart.
We all love, and people hurt, people need love.
We are all vulnerable, and that in itself is infinitely beautiful.
Please pray for us, con ojos,
We all write and heal with infinite potential, we love helping people,
all of us in the ineffable oneness soul need, the silent poetry.

I'm a poet so lost.
It hurts, writing this.
At the point where
I don't even care how great it
is or if it makes sense.
I'm in the mud, crawling
through - barely able to gasp
for air, drowning.
I pause for moments
to read the language of mud
inside water dancing to songs
induced by everything,
I've lost it. I need this.

It's true, she's black and she's the most beautiful
woman I've ever seen. It's still 1837 hea
In Louisiana, the best and worst year
of my life. I fell in love with her
the first moment I saw her, deeper and deeper
each moment with her. We grew up together,
a little boy and girl inseparable.

Both born 20 years ago, we've known
eachother since we were babies.
As kids and teenagers, we used to look into eachothers
eyes and without words share the dreams of our life;
together; we talked and talked and smiled
and held hands when no one else was lookin'.
Finally, we couldn't hide it anymore, you were afraid
but I had to proclaim my love for you to everyone I knew.

And now no one will marry us. They're either too prejudiced
or too afraid... the things they say. I don't understand,
how can people not give her a chance, not look into her eyes,
as they glance at the brightest and widest almond shaped miracle
ever created by God, her eyes, showing the deepest depths
of sweetness and tenderness. Her heart, her soul, her silence.
I want to fight, but we'll both die. I want to run,
but we have nothing and then will probably die,
but we have to do something, we have to try.
I want to wake up next to her everyday and raise
a family with her. I love her skin, even though I look beyond it.

Love her smell and smile, love the way she makes me feel,
and I can't help it, there's no other way to live.
She deserves all my love, love, love, it would be
my honor because of the woman she is, my best friend,
the smartest and wisest, the kindest woman in the world.

Now I see the images of us growing up together,
the images of my discovery about how she is the
smartest, wisest, kindest girl and woman in the world.
I see the images of us falling in love,
holding hands, smiling, laughing. Images of our dreams.

We've been through too much, in this society.
We're going to take a boat to anotha country,
find a safe place to be, a place to love. I could write the poem
about what we've endured, or about how what they did to her,
what they did to us. I'm went on a journey to the coast and
built the boat for us to sail away. I'm put her favorites
in there for her to see as I imagine the surprise in her eyes
before we sail away. But now I can't find her,
is she alive or dead? I'm bawling; dying; searching.

A Moment to Feel the Love


We remember what the moon sees,
And the way we move water.

We remember the way we cry, together.

We are liberated by the poetry we embrace,
The Unwritten poetry that transforms us,
Into grace. The poetry - we - will always be.

Begging you, begging you.
We are in every way.
Silence, and extra love.

Out the clouds and
Still in the clouds.

Diaphanous Moments


orcas kiss, swimming in spirals,
slow as can be.

eagles hold eachothers wing
and sink into eachothers eye.

heart dances, flying falling,
swimming, touching everywhere.

jaguars nap together,
listening to water. Stillness.

We made it!!! Let's bliss...
