Poem By Marvin Brato Sr

I was born without choice;
I couldn't speak...I had no voice.
The only thing I had
was a heart tainted black,
fixed to a time bomb,
held hostage by my God!

I'm beneath dad's tree limbs;
I couldn't move...mine weren't in.
Mom, pass down the follies
of my past ancestors.
I was doomed from the start;
Thrown in your womb, without heart!

Imprisoned in your strands;
Dissected by your hands.
A case of writer's block,
my body's numb with shock;
Although I cannot write,
my story is complete!

۩ A Brainchild Of Both God And The Devil...Life! ۩

We're thrown hard into a world
that we know nothing about.
We're born small, weak, and speechless,
troubled with our thoughts of doubt!

Another Girl Robbed Of Her Esteem (When Will The Nightmare End?)

The demon takes shelter in her fear.
It awakens just prior to her slumber,
takes a hatchet to her insides,
and leaves her vulnerable in the night!

A Hidden Treasure!

Behind those thick-rimmed glasses
stands a woman with much potential.
She's bright, humorous, and beautiful;
But she doesn't realize it.

☼ A Natural Love! ☼

Your heart is my sun;
It brightens every day
and is always with me
wherever I go.

A Little Treasure Hunt

I clean my room in search
of fragments of old poetry.
I survey every note pad,
every sheet of scrap paper,

I’ll Meet You At Heaven’s Gate

I dreamt all day about you babe;
Which is no different, from other days.
I miss you dearly sweetheart;
You’ll always have a home in my heart.
