We need answers

Extra Extra read all about it!

Oh wait. I didn't.
I don't remember it staying in the news for too long.

I vaguely remember it all.

75k missing black women and children and the numbers increase weekly.

Isn't that news?

Do they matter at all.

Are we so consumed with celerity tea that we can't see straight.

Nearly one million people missing.

No leads.

No clues.

No assurance about something being done.

Do have to bought to the brink of extinction before the problem is acknowledged?

Tell me what this means for us.

Let me know our fate.

Show me a sign.

Give me answer.

I'll wait.

Sometimes the tie that binds needs to be severed.

When you give and give and they take and take you have to walk away.

No explanation necessary .

No apology required.

Its been a slow build up.

You know the pattern.

They hurt you then  apologize.

Then they turn around and hurt you again.

That's not love.

That's not being a good friend.

You have to choices you can  hold on and continue to hope they straighten up or pack it in and chalk it up to enough is enough.

When well runs dry it's nearly impossible to quench your thirst.

When your walking down the path of companionship remember to always choose you first.

keeping it real?

What's keeping it real?

Is it being the loudest in the room.

Is it telling someone off when they never had a clue they did something to upset you.

Is keeping it real going out your way to ruin someone else's day?

Is keeping it real quarreling with someone that doesn't see it your way?

When you keep it real does only your opinion matter?

To be truthful.

To be quite frank.

Your perspective is dismal.

Your easement  is dank.

To keep it real you must have a genuine heart.

You must have an authentic tone.

If your not really real then just leave it alone.

Real recognizes real.

Unpack that.

Let it sizzle on your bones.

You probably like me.

I got you lost in thought.

I got you wondering about my inner most thoughts.

You want to hang out to find out what makes me tick.

Your wondering am I the truth or am I delusional or sick.


You probably like me.

You love my art.

You feel those vibes.

I'm too much.

I'm just right.

Yeah admit you like.

You know what it's alright.

Not sure quite how you found yourself here.

I'm not up to snuff with your career or current life goals.

But your loving the journey.

You know I'm worthy.

I make wildest inhabitations soar and flight.

I make you feel like theirs's nothing outside the realm of possibility with me.

You back off because you know they would never understand.

I hate to break it you kid.

You like me.

Nobody likes getting shot down.

Nobody likes getting embarrassed.

Don't want to live with not being their cup of tea.

You have to  know though.

Put it the universe.

Play it cool. (but not too cool)

Show your interest not your thirst.

Somebody has to go first.

It might as well be you.

Put something on their mind and let them follow suit.

The hunt is an adventure.

The chase can be painful or thrill.

It's really up to you.

You know how you feel.

Now what are you going to do?

The doors open.

I got an open door policy.

My door is always open.

Let me rephrase that.

It's always open for things that meant to stay.

Come on in happiness.

Come on in love.

Come on in abundance.

Come on in peace.

Come on in warmth.

Come on in loyalty.

Come on in growth.

Come on in compassion.

Come on virtue .

Come on in laughter.

Come on in healing.

Drama will be denied access.

Come on in learning.

Come on in teachable moments.
bitterness is not on the guest list.

gossip doesn't get a pass.

Sorry anger your not invited.

Shame and doubt please see your way out.

My door is always open.

It always open to what's suppose to be in place.

Everything else will have to wait.

attracting actions

I'm not perfect.

I'm aware of my flaws.

I strive to work on them.

I don't make it a habit to judge others.

I just know what I want.

I just know what I need.

Is that so wrong that I sever ties that I don't need?

I need to attract like minded individuals.
I need to be around people  that see life through the same lens that I do.

I don't like negativity.

Its positive vibes this way.

I'm not saying you have to agree with every teeny tiny thing I say.

I'm not saying you have to applaud  all my efforts and all my feats.

I'm just saying I'm aware of what I want and what I need.

Please don't get offended if I withdraw of fall back.

I know how I want my life aligned.


straight like that.

got the time?

Time is always ticking.

Time is always a constant.

So how people never seem to have enough of it.

People just make time for things they truly  believe in or desire.

You can make time  to watch the game.

You have plenty of time to  drink expensive champagne.

You can make the time to catch the game.

You can make  time  go the club.

You can make time  to go on a late night junk food run.

You can make plenty of time to go have fun.

Let me ask you a few questions.

Do you have the time to check on loved one before die ?

Do you have the time  to make your child's program?

Do have the time to show your significant other you give a damn?

Do have the time  to challenge yourself and learn something new?

Do have the time to push yourself to do things that you never thought you could do?

Do have the time  to reach out to a lost soul?

Do have the time set and meet goals?

Do have the time to see a task through?

Do have the time to love and improve you?

Just asking.

I don't meant to sound uppity or rude.

If you believe that you have none.

I suggest you try hardest to find some.

In this life your granted plenty but guaranteed none.

My piece.

I love it.

I can't picture  my world if I didn't have it.

I might conceal it when I carry it with me sometimes.

I muffle it sometimes because I would want you be alarmed when it goes off.

Two things for certain.
 Three things for sure is I do not  go anywhere without it.

I love laugher.

It's true.

I can't even deny.

If somethings seriously funny.
and your don't see me smile.
I'm not ashamed snicker.
I'm not trying to hide.

I love a good joke.

I'm probably cracking up on the inside.

Wilted flower.

Who did it?

Who bruised your delicate petals.

Who forced  you to bloom before you were  ready.

They didn't take the time to admire your beauty.

They just grabbed you by the stem and plucked your petals.

I wish you could see  yourself the way I  see you.

I wish I could make you aware of the type of care you require.

How can I impress upon you that you are desired.

They didn't take their time with you.

They didn't water you properly.

They didn't make sure you got enough light.

They didn't  invest one second to fully take  all your glorious splendor in.

I have the time.

I'll  prune you gently.

I'll handle your petals with extreme  caution.

I'll revive your roots.

I'll remove all weeds.

I'll shower you with attention.

I'll supply all your needs.

Nothing greater.

I can bet it all today and loose it all tomorrow.
Yet I'll never feel sorrow.

What ever happens I keep the same energy.

I don't match energy.

I transmute that shit.

When I enter a room I control the atmosphere.

I'm where's it's at.

You can't harsh my buzz.

You can't kill my vibe.

I draw lines.

I attract crowds.

I pique interest.

I can touch your soul in ways a set of hands can't feel.

Just met and feel connected to me like family.

I'm so simplistic yet complex.

You just want to hang on for the ride just see what's coming next.

I don't have to say much.

You know I'm the truth.

I'm a vision without sight.

I'm your reassurance that everything's going to be alright.

I'm your calm in  in the storm.

Depend on me.
Peace of mind.

Nothing is greater than me.

I get blamed for everything.

I feel like I get used as a scape goat or  sacrificial lamb.

It's not my fault that I'm so attractive.
 I'm really plain by design.
Sometimes I can bend other times I can shine.

Some people desire me.

Some people lust after me.

Some people fight over me.

Some people even kill over me.

Some people tells lies about how much they have me.

I'm often worshiped.

Other times I'm deaminized.

I don't know why people beg for my attention just to turn around and give me away.

I've been know to light up a room or make it go grey.

Some people believe that I can help them do anything.

Other people believe that if their not around me they can't do anything.

I've turned courageous men into cowards.

I've turned respectable women into whores.

I've spawned augments.

I've been the cataloes for wars.

I nothing.

I'm no greater than you.

I can expose you to monetary things that you've never had before ,but that's about it.

You are the creator of your own fate.

I'm merely a tool. 

I can't fight all your battles.

I can't make other people like you or love you.

That's totally up to you.

As I said before I'm just a tool.

I only vibrate the energy you put into me.

My life span is much shorter than yours.

Why spend all your time devoting it to me.

I can't wait to crack you open.

I want to explore your mysteries.

Tell me something.

Show me something.

I'm ready to soak it up.

Make laugh.

Make cry.

Intrigue me.

Leave in suspense.

Teach me.

Call out to me.

Give the wisdom that is transcribed on you.

Expand my mind.

Sculp the landscape of my imagination.

Broaden my horizons.

Wisk me away to the secrete place you created.

Please do me one favor though.

Don't ruin the ending for me.

Give anything you want.

Any subject.

Any category.

I'll soak it up like a sponge.

If your good enough I'll do it again and again.

Prop yourself up right here.

Lets get to it friend.

Hallziespoetrycorner:Poetry with a passion. Poetry for all occasion™


I got you.

I'm the one you can count on when everyone has counted you out.

I know what your capable of .

I know how strong you are.

I know what you can do.

Others tell you can do but secretly doubt that you can succeed.

Count on me every time to supply your need.

I'll come through when others fall back.

I'll be there to the end.

I'll always have your back.

I'll encourage you.

I'll be your motivation on dismal days.

I'll never lie to you.

I'll always be true.

Just make the time to listen when you have no else to turn to.

Take a long look in the mirror.

I'll always see you through.

closer than you think

You say you want what they have.

Your questioning why hasn't happened for you yet.

Why can't you be like everyone else?

Easy answer.

Your not everyone else.

Your unique in this world.

If you explained it to them they still wouldn't understand it.

Keep believing.

The pieces are coming together for you.

They might not fall in place the way you planned it or you want them to.

But it is coming.

You just wait.

The big question is.

When it comes.

Are ready to accept your fate?

hallizies poetry corner: Poetry with a passion.Poetry for all occasions™

You too

You can't be in two places at once.

You can't put out a fire if you have no water to douse the flames.

Every remedy does not call for extremities .

You need be conscious of that.

You do and you do.

You give and you give.

You love and you love.

You can do anything but not everything.

You are not expendable.

You can't bare everyone's cross.

You can't light the way if your the one that's feeling lost.

Don't loose yourself trying to help someone discover themselves.

You matter.

You require time too.

Never stop being kind.

Never stop extending

Never stop giving the world your all.

Never stop being true.

Never stop being you.

Just make sure you remember to celebrate yourself at all times.

People come and go but another you is hard to find.

kindered spirit.

You can feel my goodness.

Some how just know.

How solid I am.

How reasonable I can be.

How real I keep it.

When I'm on one  how I can be.

I just have that familiar face.

Instantly drown to me.

Usually soft spoken but when I do it resonates.

I make you not want to hesitate to include me your space.

Deep in thought.

Looking but lost.

You know me even if not properly introduced.

That's just me.

That's my charm.

I haven't been here before.

Don't be alarmed.

We never met.

Yet  you know me.

Hallziespoetrycorner: Poetry with a passion. Poetry for all occasions™


All on me.

I'm not angry.

I'm just done.

I'm done listing to the excuses.

I'm done listing to the lies.

I'm done pretending you didn't notice me when I walk by.

I'm done believing the phony  gestures of concern.

I'm done with all things negative and toxic.

I'm done trying to see something that was never there in the first place.

I'm done.

I'm done giving away my time so freely.

I'm done being around people that don't build me up.

I'm done being so clingy.

I'm done being so needy.

I'm done trying to hold on to people and situations that want leave.

I'm done with not adapting to change.

I'm done.

I can't say it's not you. It's me.
You see, It is you. That's why I've changed me.

I'm not angry with you.

I'm just done neglecting me.

I'm reaching for the stars.

I'm reaching for hope in this desolate place.

I'm trying to put a smile on a grim face.

It's hard to see the light sometimes.

Pitch black darkness can make you nearly go blind.

I try to keep my inner torch lit so can navigate through the mist.

I try to keep my head up so I don't  drown in the abyss.

Sometimes it seems like theirs no bottom to the murky depths of sorrow.

Then I still my nerves and remember.... Their always tomorrow.

I remeber when it was good.

I like the new artist.

I like the new hip hop.

I like the new hype.

I like the new bop.

I mean it's good.

I'm  mean it's Okay.

It's dope.

But it just don't compare to how it was back in the day.

I remember the first time I heard it growing up.

I had artist plastered on my wall like  wall paper.

I miss the mixing.

The scratching.

The breakbeats.

I miss the word play.

The similes .

The metaphors.

The delivery.

The adlibs.

The timing.

The punchlines.

The cadences.

Being up all night debating  over who the greatest is.

I would get  a rush from peeling back the cellophane off a vinyl , cassette tape  or a CD 

You could hear the artist thought process and passion in every bar.

Their energy would go all through me.

Don't get me wrong.

Some of the new guys move me.

Maybe I'm a dinosaur.

Maybe I'm being stubborn in my ways.

I can't help it.

It's just not like back in the day.

Respect your elders.

Respect your elders.

Those eyes have seen much.

Those hands have touched much.

That grey symbolizes wisdom. 

They ache because they had to fight many battles.

Their not out of touch with times.

It's all rerun to them.

They may  not be tech savvy .

They may not be up  to speed on the latest trends.

They may  move at slower pace.

One thing for certain about them is that  you can learn a lot from them simply by looking at their face.

Honor them.

Take your time to show them you care.

Go out of  your way to make their day.

And remember You'll be their age one day.

Be that somone.

We all have a role to play in making someone's day.

Its true.

You might not think you have a lot to offer but someone's looking up to you.

Someone is admiring you from afar.

They are admiring your strength.

They like your outlook on life.

They love how you think.

Some might mask it with insults.

Some might even throw the occasional shade your way.
You shouldn't pay those type of people any mind.

That's all a fa├žade.

You make their day.

You give them something to talk about.

That's why they constantly seek your attention out.

They want to know what your doing and what your thinking at all times.

They just don't know a positive way to express it in a positive way.

Believe it or not. you actually make their day.

Somebody is hoping you smile at them or say hello.

Just seeing your face every day helps them more than you know.

Just know you are important.

You mean something to someone.

You are someone's  guiding star.

You are someone's rising sun.

Keep loving your yourself.

Keep on being true to you.

Keep living your own truth.

While your living your best life
also remember to stay humble.

Make plenty of  time to be kind.

Even if you feel like you don't have  anyone

be someone's someone.
