Out of State

I’m right here but your out of state Now I’m irate  How could this be my fate I took you on how many dates? But your still looking out of state  Progress  Repress my progress  It’s going to take a congress To hold you on your mess Our loves like a game of chess  Don’t know where to go right […]

We Get Close– Essay

Why is it only when we get close and the passions in the air you want to push me away. It’s almost like your afraid, the whole community notices your foolery but you just say, “oh he’s cool with me”. I wonder at times if you know what your actively doing. Do you understand no one can ever love you […]

bingo who

Bingo who rest in feathers And ask where I was  who is thankful for years of love Who is forgiving in times of struggle Whose eyes shut too early Is not here with me Who tells me to move on Who tells me to forget Whose fur still lays in my bed Who used my heart as a home Is […]

Everyone’s Got A Purpose

Everyone’s got a purpose Everyone took a breath at birth We all  had to breathe first Everyone’s got to find a way to live We all have to find a way to give We all need a chance to live Its the opportunity I never got When I was knocked-down Blocked- by the co-op Just had to Jump down get-down […]

Is That Right?

Is that right? That I didn’t know my civil rights. That I didn’t know I could fight Is that right? That I have to choose fight or flight? I can’t fight for what’s right? Is that right? By: Charles Barjon
