So, How Does It Feel?

7 Sep

This is a 10-part Triple Rhyme Poem that talks about karma. According to Dictionary.com, karma is “the principle of retributive justice determining a person’s state of life and the state of his reincarnations as the effect of her/his past deeds.”

You do reap what you sow. Good and bad. I’ve been blessed with good fortune at unexpected and oftentimes moments when I was on the brink of despair. I’ve also done my share of dirt and have been on the receiving end of this boomerang myself and let me tell you, it was not a pleasant experience.

Song, book, and movie titles are hyper-linked to their respective audio, summary, or video pages on GrooveShark.com, Amazon.com, IMDB.com, or YouTube.com.

I want you to have a full multimedia experience during your visit here on my blog.


I hope you like this poem.

“So, How Does It Feel?”

After you pulled your mess I thought about you on Two Occasions; day and night.

Mama Said Knock You Out and I’m mentally and physically built for war and ready to fight.

It is most definitely time for the Payback because what you did was wrong and it is going to be made right.

Don Corleone from The Godfather said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

My initial impulse was to go Boogie Down and make you Ante Up truth be told.

Justice is sweeter than revenge and platinum is more valuable than gold.

I stepped away from vengeful thinking because I have a different Method, Man.

Work hard, be fair in your dealings, and be open to learning new things should always be part of your daily plan.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people and sometimes folks fly off the handle – just ask Eminem about that dude Stan.

Exhale the anger because it consumes you and keeps you from thinking straight.

Like Colin Powell said, “Get mad, get over it, then get going” is What Makes the Great Great.

Rage makes you less than the divine being you could be so make a choice not to hate.

Sometimes there will be anxiety but when you Get Up Stand Up for what’s right be Not Afraid.

The Force, Great Spirit, Mother Nature, or whatever you want to call it makes sure that no debts go unpaid.

Righteousness is a solid rock and lies and hypocrisy dry-up and fade.

Who Do You Love and Could You Be Loved and will you do what is the right thing to do?

It is so much easier to tell the truth because when one gets caught in their lies it is sickening like having a bad case of the Spanish Flu.

It begins to feel like your insides are on fire and beginning to stew.

It didn’t have to be this way but you wanted to be a bully even though you already had the high-ground.

You constantly needed your ego stroked and needed reassurances that you were the alpha and the king of the mound.

Now my Cosmic Mama will teach you a lesson that will break you down to the very last compound.

You thought me too injured and distraught to fight back against your attacks.

You may have even thought me to be dead and stinking but the heat you brought reshaped me like molded wax.

An indomitable soul is like Bébé’s Kids because it doesn’t die, it multiplies and those are the facts.

Now look at yourself being in a world of hurt and nowhere to run and hide.

I actually pity you because now your falling because you had a cocky pride.

Standing there with your mouth and eyes opened wide.

I bet you can’t really Breathe because you’re shocked and things seem so surreal.

Karma goes 360 degrees and What Goes Around comes back around full circle like reel to reel.

So, How Does It Feel?

You Are NOT Human

17 Jul

The poem below is a series of 13 haiku poems that tell one story. A haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that consists of three lines containing 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables respectively.

I call this series of haiku tied together a Haiku Chain Poem. Also, as is my signature in all of my poems, the last line contains the title of the poem.

This poem was inspired by the block-buster film, Avatar and my personal spiritual beliefs.

I hope that you like this poem.

You Are NOT Human!

You are of the same
Essence as the Creator
of Heaven and Earth

Your body is a
house for your immortal soul.
You are not human.

Being human is not an
acceptable excuse to
set small, boring goals.

An avatar is
the personification
of a deity.

Is it not written
that “Ye are gods”? Is
it not David’s psalm?

Mary-Mary has
a great, inspiring song.
“It’s the god in me”.

Michigan, Eerie,
and Ontario are lakes.
Superior, too.

Nile, Mississippi,
Tigris, and Euphrates are
all big, great rivers.

Caribbean, Red,
and Mediterranean
are all mighty seas.

Atlantic, Arctic,
Pacific and Indian
are all deep oceans.

GOD is a river.
GOD is a great lake a big
sea and an ocean.

Your body is a
cup. GOD’s spirit is water.
YOU have that spirit.

You’re an avatar
made in the image of GOD.
You are not human.

The Choice Is Your Own

6 Jul

This poem is a series of 15 haiku poems that are strung together in a series to tell a story. I call this style that I created a haiku chain poem. According to Dictionary.com, a haiku is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons; or a poem written in this form.

This poem talks about some of the holy texts, gods, and tenets for one of world’s major religions, Hinduism.

Our oldest scripture
is called the Rigveda. There
are three other texts.

The Yajurveda,
the Samaveda, and the

Total freedom of
belief and worship is how
we practice our faith.

Polytheism? Either
is tolerated.

Dharma is order,
law, harmony and all truth.
It comes from Brahman.

Brahman is supreme.
There are others like Vishnu,
Shiva and Shakti.

Sometimes the gods may
personify as humans.
They are avatars.

We define Karma
as the moral law of cause
and effect. Deeds. Thoughts.

The cycle: action;
reaction; birth; death; rebirth —
is called samsara.

Samsara provides
pleasure that encourages

Know that Nirvana
is the ultimate goal of
life. Stop the cycle.

Kama means to wish,
passion, longing and pleasure
of enjoying life.

The enjoyment of
love, affection, sensual
things that may please you.

Love and devotion.
Right action. Meditation.
Wisdom. All yogas.

Yoga means a path.
You choose your path for your life.
The choice is your own.
