A Dance

Poem By Jeffrey Mitchell

A solid cylinder of wax, with an embedded wick, to provide light, a flame that dance the dance of joy, that’s what he was created for, blue and yellow fire dancing on a wick surrounded by a cylinder of solid wax.
The flame of light dances with joy and happiness, as the wax melts, to fuel the fire it gives a reflection of his dance on the nearby wall. In a room of darkness can you see the burning flame dance upon the melted wax as the wick glows orange in the yellow of a flame under the blue light?
Drawn to the beauty of your flickering light and your movements, the bright orange of your wick, the yellow flame that dances around it, and the blue flame beneath it, is singing to the movement of your dance.
A light that dance inside a cylinder that can reflect its beauty on the one who is looking towards it, Perhaps this light is speaking. Can you hear the call from the dark places in your life? A flame of light that dance the dance of joy so you can see.

Psalm 119: 105
Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.

Bare My Soul


Bare My Soul
I Question who I am


Buzzing along
Minding my own business
Then I see some honey in a tree
As I glance while passing by
I notice a spider looking at me!


Watching a beautiful butterfly in flight
Flapping her wings, what a beautiful décor she displays
As she glides on a gust of wind, while light from the sun
Cast a shadow of her my way on the ground


To my beautiful sisters what appearance do you reveal, walking around wearing a provocative outfit enticing and stimulating men, leaving nothing concealed for their imagination. Do you know how precious you really are, like an unpolished diamond a jewel that never took the time to develop, a precious stone scurrying about looking for approval from men, you chose to seduce them, using your body as a tool to please them, you equate the outer appearance as your value, which provided a false sense of beauty, that only contribute to your low self-esteem.
What you see in the mirror does not resemble a diamond, only because you are not looking deep within yourself to find your true worth, it seems easier for you to just get by, instead of reaching inward to the depth of your soul, you rather skim the surface of life using your body instead of your mind, let your intelligence stimulate your mind, find the depth of your value and shine bright like the diamond you are.
To all my brothers holding up buildings, and sitting on milk crates, and broken chairs, spending hours at corner stores, exchanging illegal substance for cash, you know prison and death are associated with your commodities, you rather sell death, and in prison the mind of your people instead of being a role model and lift your brother up, iron sharpens iron, but you rather rub two sticks together and burn your community down.
