Game

They give you nine numbers
to begin the process
steal your mother’s placenta
wrap you in hospital garb
and take mental notes
before the cameras
can be adjusted
then the onslaught begins
you are given a name,
a race, a gender, a neighborhood, a set of values,
a flag, a television, a radio,
toys
and then the game
becomes complicated, evasive
hidden
the cameras are now rolling
everything is scripted
except you
the room is wired
your words are analysed
predicated on prompts already
in place
you have no idea that
you have never had a single
thought that was your own
even your rebelliousness
has an index
paid robots bring your music
dictate your speech pattern
and determine which clothes
shall protect you from a
warming climate
in cozy rooms
every argument is designed,
packaged and augmented
to draw you away from thinking

Unknown – Author A.M. Torres

Creative Talents Unleashed

Bottom of Form

She raises her arm;

The child is confused,
She smashes her cats;

Now Mommy’s unglued.
Get out of there now;

Her father yells out
It all falls on him;

To get her out fast.
She’s done this before

They took her away,
The little girl cries;

For Mommy, must stay.
Her siblings cry too,

The girl’s not alone,
They all feel her pain;

In facing the unknown.
Something went wrong

The girl wonders what
She thinks it’s her fault

She made Mommy snap.

Bearing Fruit – Author Kristina Neal Mosley

Creative Talents Unleashed

On the knees of Sunday’s hem

To trim away fat and grief

I come, not because of Jesus,

Not because of poverty’s righteous view

Nor because broken window seals -while the dust settles through

Not to be born again, and die of royalties -peculiar few

On the knees of Sunday’s hem

A praying mantis lifts her tentacles in tune

For love’s bearing seed, seated far above earthly cares

To satisfy these wooden bellies, for I have come to witness,

Birds dropping dew, I have come to pray like lovers do,

Yes, I have to come to eat the bread and the wine

I have come to stow away

My mother’s fears, for the sake of time

Unconditionally – Author Raja Williams

Creative Talents Unleashed

Your kids don’t care what you are wearing

Or what you buy them

Or what schools they get into

They just want you there,

That’s it.

Time is running out . . .

They won’t love you unconditionally that much longer

So for your own good

Don’t miss out

On really getting to know them

They are truly amazing little people!

Our children;

Our greatest privilege.

Simply Me

About the Author

Ms. Raja Williams, also known as Raja’s Insight, fiercely arrived on the writer’s scene in 2012 after being awakened by a prolific poet, lyricist, songwriter, and music producer whom encouraged her to write daily. After nearly twenty years of pent up words only floating in her own head she began to allow the words to spill out onto empty pages and find way to readers  needing encouraging words.
