Check In / What Am I Doing?

My friends support me, privately

Mostly in their hearts

My enemies rage against me, publicly

Using all the social platforms

I feel I’m inspiring lives

Obviously I’m creating barriers

I believe I’m building bridges

But the walls speak louder

The wall builders have every reason

To be angry with me because

I am building bridges with the tools

That could have been used to build walls

They are totally public yet highly rivalrous

But the question is what am I doing?


If I don’t know who I am

I would believe the obvious

Actually if I don’t know who’s I AM

I probably would have been lost

In the midst of the endless negativities I see

I found hope in timeless words I often don’t see

It is easier to tell someone how to calm a storm

When you have never witnessed a tempest

But when the wind is boisterous

You will almost forget that you are alive.


I am telling you someone’s story

Someone that’s dear to you

But you don’t know

Someone you know so well

But don’t know how they are doing

Someone that needs you

But you care less about their needs

Someone that needs your attention

But you think they have enough

Someone that’s living with you

But you don’t know how they’re living.


I need a little help from you

Just check in on your friends and family members

Even if they seem to be doing well

What you see outside, especially on social media

Is not really what is happening inside

And you checking in may just be

The difference between resting and taking a rest.

And you checking in may just be the difference between resting and taking a rest

Those that needed love killed love

Yet the love they killed keeps loving them

We shed the blood of love

Yet stains of the blood of love cleanse us

The love we did create injustice against

Keeps speaking mercy and justice for us

We break all laws, destroy images of love

Abuse the likenesses of love

Desecrate the institutions of love

Yet love gives us rest at night

And wakes us up in the morning.

I can give you credits for my success

But I owned all the masters to my failures.

I used to be a seed of Adam

But now I sow seeds on the soils of Adam

I guess you know the second Adam

And that’s no coincidence

Someone feels like I’m trying to rhyme

I’m sorry beloved!

My flow got no rhythms

Because you’re off beat.


Just Don’t Keep Me Waiting

Treat me like a patient

Just don’t keep me waiting

I know I’ve got some patience

But this is an emergency

And it needs urgent attention

But you can’t know what I want

If you don’t know who I am

Like, how do you know where I’m going

If you don’t know what’s driving me

My life is a journey

The destination, time unfolding

I know the Way am following

The speed the pain is slowing

You can follow me on

While I try to figure things out

Or you can wait and observe

Till it’s all figured out

But just don’t keep me waiting

For I’m a patient

And time is of essence.
