As you climb
To the best of my ability
I will have your back
And steady your ladder
Always I will encourage you
So whenever you look back
You will see my smiling face
Supporting and proud
Cheering you on
Unwavering I will be
At the foot of your ladder

Christmas day so full of joy,
putting a smile on my face.
Inspiring your eldest boy
with love. I say grace
I am fortunate to have
a mother like you.
No matter the distance between us,
Your love will shine through.
You've made me what I am today.
Molded me into Asavvy man.
Being there, supporting my dreams.
Doing everything you can.
I say thank you Mom,
for all that you have done.
My muse, my backbone, my mother, I love you.
Your eldest son......

For you I'll make an ocean
Where you'll never have to hide
I'll fill it with devotion
And pour love upon the tide
For you these waters bide...
The waves they will embrace you
On that warm supporting sea
The current, it will guide you through
And bring your flame to me
The things you always wanted...you will see

beauty, cancer, childhood, city,
I’m from dirt covered knees
and sweaty faces
I’m from playing in the sun
from dawn ‘til dusk
I’m from “being one of the guys”
playing sports in the mud pits of our backyards
I’m from striving to fit in
I’m from making mistakes
and learning from the consequences
I’m from going to parties
and staying out late
I’m from a shaky past
with an unknown future
I’m from turning the bad into good
I’m from being the best I can be
and working hard to succeed
I’m from a family of survivors
supporting them through their fight with cancer
I’m from never giving up
on something you love

allegory, friendship, rainbow, sunshine,
Some people put on a show; they out and out lie. You know real friends will tell you the truth, nicely. Like rainbows in the sky, friends are a welcome sight; like rainbows, friends mix sunshine with the rain.
pretending, daring, charming
sequins, showoffs; friends, jewels
supporting, cautioning, inviting

Look close at Old Glory
Pick up one of the stars…
Names, faces engraved under each one
Of those who protected our stars and bars
Supporting our freedom-- never easily won.
Ghostly faces of men
Fighting, suffering, dying for our land
Each hero holding onto the flag
Traumatized, wounded but making their stand
Look---special stars for those who lost their dog tags.
Americans supporting their causes
Promising our banner will never fall
Stand up citizens, cover hearts, pause
Proudly look at the flag, and then stand tall
Tattered maybe, but to us--
Old Glory's the same...not old at all.

Am I supposed to love you from isolation?
From miles away?
Put your feelings away.
Oh, just stay.
We’ll figure it out.

abortion, anti bullying, blessing, evil, hate, love, truth,
The silent acquiescence to evil becomes transparent
it sits on the sideline afraid to choose a side
letting sin trample all over good values into condemning them as false
Where honesty lacks any sort of fire or deep conviction
but yet those whom are filled with hate are driven by their passion
let us pedal this for what it is
How does one unlock the mindset caught in a trap
snared they become supporting vices seeking children
hell bent on destroying the normal family structure
enough is enough when you see clearly
The sacrifice is done in blood attacking the innocent
guilt has only one face and hides behind a mask of deceit

best friend, brother, family, friend, love, relationship,
Thelma to my Louise
Partner in crime;
Drags me from darkness to light.
Muse to my demons,
Always playing a perfect tune;
Laugh upon the wind,
Inspiring me to new heights.
Mechanic to my soul,
Break by break; beer by beer,
We patch, paint, and buff
The scars from our hearts.
Playing Jimminy Cricket
Angel and demon upon decisions;
Anchor upon rough seas...
molding and supporting one another.
Transcending friend to family;
Built in body guard,
Protecting my virtue...
A sister you never knew you wanted.
Shelter from rain;
Shoulder to cry upon,
Best friend unto brother...
I'd be lost without your beacon.

beauty, desire, i love you, longing, love, passion, romance,
A gentle word like a spark of light,
Illuminates my soul
And as each sound goes deeper,
It's YOU that makes me whole
There is no corner, no dark place,
YOUR LOVE cannot fill
And if the world starts causing waves,
It's your devotion that makes them still
And yes you always speak to me,
In sweet honesty and truth
Your caring heart keeps out the rain,
YOUR LOVE, the ultimate roof
So thank you my Love for being there,
For supporting me, my life
I'll do the same for you, you know,
My Beautiful, Darling Fiance.
To my loving Fiance, Michaela Dean

TAKE A CHANCE
And a chance to love
Every mountain meadow
and field beckons
every earth-bound thing stirring
Well then? LOVE!
The inconstant mind will disagree
will crawl every corner of existence
Hah! That slab of meat will - computer-like -
store every confuting demon
Confusing in a whirl!
(oh, to just die)
But close your eyes
Always with ‘that still small voice’ will tell
“Here are no inconsistencies

death, life, metaphor,
No one had stuck to the script.
Improvisation had become the necessity
of constantly changing sets.
The orchestra pit, gaping maw
of failure, waiting to devour
tongue tied practiced lines,
reverberating costumed fears
masquerading as “stage” presence,
applauded by long vacant stares.
Passion, lost amid lust,
love, tainted by doubt,
time’s creaky stage
of faltering steps
last act, last scene, last bow,
final curtain call.

Constantly is one
Contacting you is keeping alive
And loving you despite the distance
Is a gentle rain
Rapidly to dampen
Loneliness that hamper and threatens
Thus, energizing and maintaining
And repotting, therefore is for existence
And likens a life supporting device.

Latin for “Laurel” was a tall, strong tree,
Queens crowned with such honor and victory,
Poet Petrarch in love with the beauty,
Beloved Laura, fourteenth century.
So many years, nothing but love for her,
Laura was his soulmate, truth to be heard,
For he wrote her sonnets on notepaper,
Longing to prove he was her heart keeper.
When someone asks what Laura really means,
Strong roots supporting my great Laurel tree,
Blossoming, blooming all colors of green,
Swaying in the breeze so sturdy and free.
Even though my middle name is Marie,
Queens crowned with my branches in victory.

laughter overrides melancholy
when your smile brings about mine
geared for the exigent days
supporting each other
through good and bad times

girlfriend-boyfriend, lost love, love, recovery from..., romanceromance, romance,
Radio romance ridicules soul,
soldiers beat is the only motion I know.
The power of pride I will always show,
never shall I hide the glorious glow.
Radio romance advances swiftly,
razor eyes rumble the ground before thee,
trembling knees gain strength and rigidity,
supporting the weight of all that is me.
Radio romance spits fulsome flattery,
sadly believed are these words entrusted through doubt.
Loves lies swipe neat,
about face choked cries.
Radio romance takes a seat, beat

when you look at the world
operating systems and find out
there were made for the interests of few folks
in the world and you keep silent.
Imagine the thoughts of the victims
who standing pacifically and
expressing some important issues
to clean without violences in the world.
Some meaningful daily songs
are celestial warnings
which can be ignored
and blaming the singers
In the future.
Scripture says " Love the neighbours
as you love yourself"
supporting wrong world operating systems express
hating the victims of these world wrong operating systems.
Love it is shown in actions.

10th grade, 11th grade, 12th grade, angst, anxiety, imagination, peace,
What if our world were free of greed and hate
and equality and justice shared goals?
Just think of what wonders we could create
in a place befitting creatures with souls.
Peace is proven an improbable dream,
but can you imagine if it weren't so?
What if we stop supporting the extreme;
and instead, vote for a new tomorrow?
Can you imagine a world without war,
with no more bigotry, killings, or rapes?
And a love this world's never seen before,
finally distinguishing Man from apes.
Fantasy or destiny, it's our choice,
keep waging war, or join hands and rejoice.

girlfriend-boyfriend, love, romance, me, love, me,
When I look back
And think about our time together
All the beautiful memories we've made
It makes me feel so lucky
To be in love with you
All the good times we've had
All the obstacles and hurdles we've scaled
Our ability to handle all our issues on our own
It makes me feel so fortunate
To be in love with you
You've always been wonderful to me
Supporting me in every way
For all the love and affection you've showered on me
It makes me feel so blessed
To be in love with you.

black african american, love, people,
Fluently flowing from her beautiful head,
Are locks of perfection,
Stopping abruptly at her back.
Sloping steep with elegance,
Forms her neck,
Supporting her head like it holds the world.
Smooth silky plateaus are her shoulders,
The sturdy top table,
Balancing good and bad like a scale.
Her torso was that of sexy seduction,
Twisting and Turning, confusing my love,
Tight compactness driving me wild.
Hypnotic waves sent from her hips,
Curvacious winding roads of elusiveness,
Her worst is her best interchangeably,
Skin tone of ebony, caramel, and honey,
A GODDESS sitting on the pedestal of Heaven.
