4 Poets liberated from the cultural
Chokehold political mould – Their word weaving promises to be literary gold erradicating centuries of untruth told by racially elected centurions controlling their willing minions to rule over racially classified millions of all shaded skin hues but they were ostricised for not being of pale skin even though they had European skin beautifully blended with African cultures although dismissed by self-appointed false prophet racist leaders happy to be trusted as their souls’ liberators- united they stood establishing agreed falsehoods attempting to irradicate delete dismiss target and ultimately deplete their new colonial haven of coloured fodder enacting racial murder of original indigenous tribal inhabitants forced from their ancestral lands with no stain on their purified rulers’ conscience.

I Am Not My Father ~ Author Raja Williams

Creative Talents Unleashed

As I watched him walk away,

I realized the burdens he has carried

He carries with him;

His father’s sins

They are attached to his soul

And anchored into his DNA

He walks like his father

He talks like his father

His angry outbursts performed;

Just like his father

In my own moments of anger

I accusingly yell out

“You’re just like your dad,

why would you want to be like that?”

The silence cuts with a knife

His stare;

Kills me dead where I stand

That was the last time I saw him

He walked out the door;

His last words . . .

“I am not my father”

Three days later . . .

He died of a drug overdose

He Died;

Just like his father.

The Backbone – Author Sue Lobo

From Sue Lobo…

Creative Talents Unleashed

Woman, always bending, her chores unending,

She, forever caring & never ever is she sparing,

Woman, plying, knitting, sewing, planting, hoeing,

She, sawing & at times to survive, even whoring,

Always eking & within her old soul, wisdom seeking,

Woman, sowing, reaping, in secret does her weeping,

She, cooking, cleaning, always searching the meaning,

Woman, always loving, dreaming, forced to scheming,

She, forever lending, forever darning, fixing, mending,

Woman, birthing, nursing & so often, even cursing,

She, with infinite patience, the backbone of all nations.

Survival ~ Author Donna J. Sanders

Creative Talents Unleashed

Who can he trust

when he is the last man to roam

on deteriorating bridges

and barren land

where traces of life

are buried deep beneath

the planet’s dust

He knows not what

abnormal existence he will

find in cold caverns where

he must find refuge and warmth

Tomorrow is another day

where he must continue

the search for a way out

but today he only worries

about how to survive the night

Rain Storms – Author Tracy Seiden

Creative Talents Unleashed

Storms brewed in her eyes, clouds shifting, building to a crescendo, stirring the waters deep in her soul.  She felt restless as lightning flashed through her forced smile and thunder rolled through her thoughts.

A reckoning coming, a crossroads decision in which she could take the next step toward her destiny, or stay frozen marking time until the clock ran down to its end.

She felt the first hard drops of rain crashing against her mind, slipping over to wash her eyes clean, and a ghost of a smile touched her lips. Too many times her storms had threatened her safety, ripped her from her moorings and set her adrift for days.

This time she met it head on.  This time she would dance through the rain.
