"Ode to the Mobility Air Forces"

Only we can tell this story
Of our present and past glory
Made of walnut, silver and brass
With “fesswise” wings encased in glass

With strength of mind, body and heart
Never will our integrity depart
Our histories are rich in traditions
Of protecting the weak in precarious positions

Globally we go where few can dream
As our realities defy the imagination it seems
From land to air and all you can envision
That’s when we begin to perform our mission

Impossible doesn’t begin to define what we do
But we are honored to serve all walks of mankind too
We can never repay you for the sacrifices you gave
But remember the fallen as they slumber in their graves

We are all pieces to a puzzle with a role to play
Just as every minute on a clock completes a day
Many cannot comprehend the courage it takes to be you
Inconceivable to many but our job is never through

"Fallen Hero"

There is no sacrifice greater
Than to give one’s life in the theater
Memories where heroes now sleep
Not one tear will I weep

My comrade’s mission is to take me home again
To be viewed by the masses, loved ones and friends
Tears welled in his eyes before he wept
But I accompanied him as I slept

As my hearse drove by I heard no cries
I saw no tears in mournful eyes
I was only content as it showed on my face
As I enjoyed my ride to my resting place

Never will I see battle again
Or bear arms with my friends
Or know the triumphs of victories of tomorrow
But not a tear will I weep for sorrow

Demise is now where I reside
With honor I accept this term with pride
Forever now will I enjoy my sleep
Not one tear will I never weep

"Butterflies and Angels"

As lost love turns into unawareness
Butterflies and Angels feel the unfairness
Often the first victims to feel lost
A heavy price to pay for such a cost

Love runs away and leaves no address
While Butterflies and Angels endure more stress
Daydreams of thoughts of not being together
More hard times and stormy weathers

Butterflies and Angels cry into watery hands
For the definition of why that avoids understand
Float, float, float away pain and grief
As time will heal and give relief

KKS

 

"Beautiful Flower"

Beautiful flower why do you cry
For future pains that confuses why
Beautiful flower why do you cry
For past beatings that blacken your eyes


Beautiful flower how did you break your arm
You blame amnesia for the harm
You shake your head as you disconnect
To erase the pain as you don’t object

Beautiful flower you often reflect
Of years lost to suffering and neglect
Beautiful flower don’t lose your aroma
Because your petals will fall into a coma

KKS

 

"Almost Gone"

Heated spoons and liquid mixes
Put in needles for our fixes
Your proclivities never tease us
As your habitualness begins to please us

Our minds open as the pleasure comes
Leaving us in a state called comfortably numb
A plethora of tracks on our arms
With each step closer to permanent harm

We slip in and out of a sleep like death
On step closer to no more breath

 

"Stormy Weather"

As I listen to your voice roar
In a car with closed windows and doors

My ears are held hostage to your diatribe
Of unpleasantries that you now describe

In my silent calm is where I reflect
Before my hurricane matures to collect

Everything caught up in this storm
Will pay the Piper with great harm

Feelings once verbally abusive will cease to be
As my ruthlessness is exacted brutally

On a paper tiger with no claws
Dressed in a skirt with menopause

 

"Talons"

When the birds of prey
Begin to slay
The animals in the field....

We look about
In confused thoughts
As the carnage seems surreal....

Screams of agony
Are muted only
By death’s soft hands....

We now observe
As spectators as nature
Picks the chosen from the land....

KKS

 

"9mm"

Many days and years I found pain and fear
As a broken soul drowned in a tidal wave of tears
Our children witnessed this with fearful eyes
Now older eyes have grown to despise

Brutality always kicked in my doors
Bringing horror and much more
Broken bones and beating almost to the last breath
Life no more please can I befriend death

Insinuations were the invitations to wreak havoc on me
Broken spirits and bones are the aftermath you see
So I swallowed a bullet to escape this plight
Now peace of mind at last maybe I can sleep tonight

KKS

 

"Sleeping Baby"

Trapped inside a womb
Called tomb
D.O.A.
Before I could live a day
No pains no screams
Or even dreams
Did I fall asleep and wake up dead
Life no more visits my head
Outside the womb there is no life
I’ll never be called husband or wife
Daughter or son
Or even know fun
I don’t even know my name
Stillborn I am has taken its claim

 

"When a King Dreams"

Purple mountain’s majesty
Non violence treated brutally
People of color found no humanity
As segregation was on the menu to be

The american nightmare continued to be
Deprivation of civil liberties
People of color found it hard to see
The definition of equality

Mistreated because of our skins
Will this nightmare always be our friend
With open eyes you try to comprehend
This never existed as you now pretends

A King dreamed this wasn’t kind
Fairness should always be color blind
Racism is always unkind
Showcased only by mankind

When a King dreams of equality
That all people has a right to be
Devoid of hypocrisy and treachery
Then life would truly be equally

KKS

 

"Perceptions"

Sometimes amnesia corrupts the truth
When we begin to describe the inner city youths
Most colored malefactors and perpetrators
No good found in them lost participators
It is indeed a grave misdeed
To color one as you perceive
But in this world of hard knocks
Where pain is found and crack rocks
There shines a beacon of light
Where intellect is employed day and night
On college degrees and PHD(S)
Which are manufactured within these miseries

 

"25th & 29th"

I wish both my August born brothers happy birthday
I think of you everyday but especially on your death days
Songs that you like to hear
When on the radio catches my ear
I miss your fast minds and comedic ways
As we stayed up many hours laughing all day
I also miss the reality of your conversations
Straight to the point without hesitation
Every now and then I dream about you two
Dreams so real when I awake I start looking for you

KKS

 

"Antiquated"

As time refuses to rewind
But many wishes it could find
A place in history
When many were treated discriminately

Our skin colors were a fatal attraction
As prejudice was the current fashion
Sick minds often manifested
Into cruelties that are detested

The downtrodden need not apply
Your helplessness will get a reply
You will be segregated because you are poor
As your dreams diminish when opportunity closes her doors

You sexual preferences are not my lovers
More hatred found as you will discover
Antibodies cannot override
Your disease that grows inside

Your ignorance only metastasizes
Against those that realizes
Your cowardice is inbred
And resides only in your head

 

"Dish Cloth"

You always use me at your leisure
Constantly treating me like a skeezer
Often I clean your plate
At home or when you’re on a date

Dragging me through the debri and dirt
As though my feelings doesn’t hurt
Should I be void of emotions
And never entertain commotions

You mangle and choke me but I never complain
I regroup, acclimate and still maintain
Never will I cry a tear
Because my place is always here

 

"Runaway"

I decided to runaway and be on my own
Greyhound ran far and I thought I was grown
In this new city without any friends
Lint in my pockets and no ends

This episode went on for many days and nights
Until hunger kicked in and a few frights
I decided on my new occupation
Selling my body without hesitation

Many dangerous nights I walked the streets
Getting my grind on until my ends meet
I did things I never thought I would do
And gave up my money when I was through

Many years passed and my youth is gone
I dogged myself out a junkie all alone
I looked in the mirror for clues about what went wrong
So that I could call them up on the phone

To ask them how could I do this to me
And destroy my dreams and possibilities
I never knew one decision could destroy my world
As I recall memories now of being a little girl

 

"The Other Virginity"

Death survives all it befriends
But we can live long but never comprehend
As life dies tomorrow and today
Death she greets us without delay

She outlives the definition we call infinity
As we are introduced to her virginity
She never tires as life permanently sleeps
Some disbelieve as mourner’s always weep

But when we awaken from this cocoon
Will we be greeted by Jesus soon
Or will we forever sleep and dream
Never to find our way out of our grave it seems

If there is any doubt in our minds
Eventually we will all find
The answer to this question
Complete damnation or the beauty of resurrection

KKS

 

"Contagious"

Every now and then I maturate
Into something that you hate
Many of my diseases have mysteries
That brings about catastrophe

I have lived centuries with demise
Your young and old will be compromised
I’ve developed immunities that destroy communities
And I don’t need that many opportunities

Long time, short time you hear my alarms
As millions die from my harms
TB(S), HIV(S) and STD(S)
Are just a few of my good miseries

 

"Realities"

Let me take your mind hostage for awhile
As I introduce you to a unique style
Of realities that you hide in disguises
Which are full of untruthful surprises

Lies and deceptions reside within your reflections
As all is invited inside your perceptions
Truth never is invited within your mind
Clueless never discovered by find

You listen but you don’t understand me
Because you can’t comprehend my realities
Head doctors listen to my clues
Discovering deeper meanings within their trues

How can something as simple as being real
Unlock jealousies into a state of kill
I refuse to be untruthful and create alibis
And get caught up in a web of perpetual lies

KKS

 

"Cause and Effect"

Missing you two
with all my heart
But destiny has
caused us to be apart
I see you every
night in my dreams
But time has
separated us it seems
I visualize the
gift that beauty gave you
Aesthetics beyond
the definition of adjectives too
My vision drove
me to another path
Full of pain and
relentless wrath
A global tour
I traveled to live and tell
With many pitfalls
leading to hell
But never did I
give up on God and His plan
As I was blessed
beyond the definition of understand
I miss you more
than the procreation of my life
Beautiful daughter
and lovely wife

KKS

 

"OD"

I love you like an addiction
Forever will you be my affliction
You visit me in my hallucinations
Daily without an invitation

Seeing you distorts my vision
Blurred reasoning confuses my decision
About what is real and what I feel
Of emotions that you never conceal

You reside constantly in my veins
Wreaking havoc but never will I complain
Broken hearted as I must be
But I turn the page and accept reality

Never again will you visit me
As I fell asleep permanently
In a place called good-bye
In a grave called you know why

KKS

 

"Runaway"

I decided to runaway and be on my own
Greyhound ran far and I thought I was grown
In this new city without any friends
Lint in my pockets and no ends

This episode went on for many days and nights
Until hunger kicked in and a few frights
I decided on my new occupation
Selling my body without hesitation

Many dangerous nights I walked the streets
Getting my grind on until my ends meet
I did things I never thought I would do
And gave up my money when I was through

Many years passed and my youth is gone
I dogged myself out a junkie all alone
I looked in the mirror for clues about what went wrong
So that I could call them up on the phone

To ask them how could I do this to me
And destroy my dreams and possibilities
I never knew one decision could destroy my world
As I recall memories now of being a little girl
