Family Unity

Poem By Cassandra Boyd

A mom in your corner when times are bad,
a sister to call when you’re feeling sad,
being a friend when your brother has a breakup,
a bear hug from your dad when you kiss and makeup.

Helping your aunts with the pies and cakes,
eating at the table with your cousins on holidays,
groovin’ to the sounds of R & B,
or all the guys watching the games on TV.

All the kids in the basement playing together
or in the backyard depending on the weather.
laughing and screaming in all their fun,
precious moments you take for granted
when you’re young.

Grandma and grandpa enjoying the scenes
of family eating, playing cards or watching the games.
Reminiscing on many years long gone
of other relatives and friends that have passed on.
Taking pictures for our future generations to see
as evidence of our family unity.

Yellow, Green, Blue,
fear, envy, sadness,
your colors shine so bright
and they wave like a flag up high.

A Letter From God

My child, why do you cry? Why do you grieve?
when you know all you have to do is believe.
I am the Omnipotent One,
all your troubles shall be gone.

Before I Wake

Before I wake, I dream of a day
when we will grow old together,
we will spend hours on end
discussing the plans

what do you think?
I want to hear your
malicious gossip?

'Cause You My Girl

I ain’t one of those hoochies that
will sleep with your man and
hang out with you at the club.

Would You Love Me Any Less

If I told you my secret would you love me any less?
Would you dismiss me from your life
and make me have regrets?
