Silent Pride

Poem By Kendzi Samuel

I could scream your name atop the tower,
And throw down my gauntlet at your foot.
But would rather
Have you envision I cower,
All the while
Silent as an owl, refrain even hoot.

You could curse, spit my face, and slap
Hell, I'd even turn the other cheek.
Your drunken friend cry praises and clap,
I, on my part, remain ever meek.

The force with which burst forth a dam,
Equals that which would it withhold.
But the gush fades, after causing harm,
Along with the applause of being hailed 'bold'.

So merry on forth, and me despise.
Harden your heart as the medal placed o'er it.
Wave and smile as your praise cries,
Raise your glass to your foe's defeat.

In lovely things I rather take pride
A flower from my daughter,
A kiss from the other,
Smiling into the eyes of my beautiful bride,
And desires my heart nothing further.

My pride is silent, my ego mute.
Don't you think tis better that way?
Don't let glory flames scar your heart brute,
It would burn to ashes and fade to grey.

Beautiful darkness in her eyes,
Black they are, in all it's shades.
They hold the promise of paradise
But give my heart the torment of hades.

A Night In Nigeria

Blue, black, and a little of green,
Colors I see, mixed in the night sky.
Stained with white clouds that seem to glow
But sure sparkles the stars tis sprinkled with

Broken Nights

Broken nights, and shattered daylight
A dream stole my heart, while toddler's feet wobbled,
Now trapped in a world I dont understand
That laughs when I say my mind is troubled

Regret, In Still Flow

I know a dream of time travels
Standing on a beach,
Awaiting the shores to meet
Ruined by both regret and destruction

Blue Paradise

No dove, No voice
Just an indifferent John
No love, no choice
Or the cries of a stillborn

Ready To Learn

Here are my dreams
In colors, not in black and white
I wouldn't let you see my fears though
Cause somewhat I think, I got inside
