“From Anger, Comes the Sun”

September 22, 2014

“From Anger, Comes the Sun”

At times,
I want to fly away
And live amongst the stars.

To let my light shine,
And illuminate the Earth.
Bask in my own happiness.

To shoot over the moon,
Past orbital bliss,
And burst into fallen tears of joy.

When my heart beats
To the rhythm of love,
I become at peace amongst the day’s light.
I become one with the sun.

This Mahogany Brown

August 4, 2014

“This Mahogany Brown”

This deep color.
This mahogany brown.
Hue so lovely, so divine.
Beneath it, through the veins of glory,
Runs my history.
My story.
My place in this here world.
This mahogany brown.
Behold what He has made.
With this shade, comes all of my kinks and curves
That Mother Africa proudly preserves.
This mahogany brown.
A shield of honor that I’ll always defend.
You emulate this deep, brown skin.
Yet, you never want the skin I’m in.

Body

July 18, 2014

Overwhelmed With Emotion Today And Wanted To Express My Thoughts.

“Be not ashamed women…You are the gates of the body, and you are the gates of the soul.” – Walt Whitman

The body of a woman…
A temple created by The Most High.
A precious gift
That gives the gift of human life.
The body of a woman that you want to destroy for sport,
Then brag about your exploits.
If only you knew the greatness from whence you were descended,
You wouldn’t have to hang your head in shame
For the foul acts of malice that you choose to do.
Rape is a not a male right of passage.
A woman’s body created your life that you wrecklessly waste.
A woman’s body is love devine.
A work of God in every inch.
A heavenly body
That scarifices so much to give us all the gift of life
And the opportunity of another day.

There’s Nothing Humorous About Rape.
#IAmJada
She has the courage to stand alone and stand up for what is right.

“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.” – Albert Einstein

Vivid

May 1, 2014

“Vivid”

A vivid image I see
when I close my eyes.
A wild imagination
that allows desires to live freely.
I see us in a strong embrace,
as we let time suspend until forever.
The warmth of your body
electrifies my soul.
A simple touch
ignites feelings unknown to the mind.
Voice as smooth as silk,
it carries me beyond the clouds,
and makes me believe I’ve reached the gates of Heaven.
Eyes as beautiful as the sun,
they draw me closer to you.
And then I awake.
I still feel this surreal reality from deep within,
and the memories engrained will forever linger on.

Heart

December 28, 2013

The time has come for me to post my final poem for 2013. As always, I want to thank everyone for visiting my site, liking my posts, and for leaving comments. I really appreciate you taking the time to do so. I wish everyone well, and may the inspiration to create continue to live within you.

Have a Successful New Year,
-Samara

“Heart”

To be so full of love to give…
What a joyous feeling.
Something so simple, yet so complex.
Love has always left one feeling perplexed.
The matters of the heart are quite real.
Heart.

To have failed and tried again for success,
Only to have it crushed once more,
But be able to move forward with newfound hope.
To be uncertain, only to gain clarity in the end.
The matters of the heart can reveal
The truth and the light.
The sunshine upon dark eyes.
Heart.

With all of life’s negative forces
That enter the heart only to weaken it.
Only the strong do survive
The fuckery of emotions that fester from within.
To rise from the ashes of pain,
And refill the emptiness with love, yet again.
The ability to remain the victor is power.
Could this be what it means to have heart?
