the race of life

12717350_1280577691956186_6697039262060222963_n

I’m a spiritual warrior
a mystic
who runs the race
of life
for
THE HUMAN RACE

as a performance artist
in all black clothes
with a hood
I create
a body metaphor
so to rise from the shadows
bring out of the darkness
into the light
those hidden
and suppressed
inhibitions
and predispositions
that day in and day out
fester
the open wounds
of human social ills
my artistically
proactive
spiritual act
as a mystic
has but one
noble purpose
the emergence of
that communicative
and cooperative
process found within
dialogue …..
……  a dialogue that would nudge
the human-kind
to run down the long
and winding road
toward healing ~
the healing of the world
of its social ills
as this one race united
THE HUMAN RACE
that together wins
the race called life
and the everlasting
prize of peace

I’m a spiritual warrior
a mystic
who runs the race
of life
for
THE HUMAN RACE

peace out

when you winked at me

I was a shy boy
as a child
since then I’ve struggled
to feel differently
my children
would laugh
at the label
and say dad is fearless
but the expectation
of meeting you
the shy boy
came out again
even though I knew
at first glance
we were kindred spirits
of the spiritual kind
I doubted my instincts
’cause
you are beautiful
successful
talented
and intelligent
then you elegantly signed
your book of poetry
~   saying
we were kindred spirits
and yet
it wasn’t until
the next day
when you winked at me
from the podium
I knew
you understood
i understood
we were fellow travelers
of THE HUMAN RACE

peace out

Dedicated to my fellow artist and kindred spirit Helene Cardona.

THE MISPRONUNCIATION OF WHO I AM

Dedicated to my social activist friend, brother and word spoken artist mentor – William Washington.

another year begins
to say what I got to say
whether perceived as valuable
or not by others
I stepped up to the plate
and stood before the crowd
TO SAY ~
THE NIGGER CHRONICLES
THE MISPRONUNCIATION
OF WHO I AM
if I strike out
I will try again
and again
failure ain’t the problem
compliance
to what’s unacceptable
now that’s not acceptable
not an option
in my reality
I walk on
without fear
hesitation
or regret. …
I’m a contributor
to the outcome of life

peace out

within the spirit
of me being me
a PRO-HUMAN social activist
mystic
performance artist
focused on THE HUMAN RACE
I see the benefit to humanity
of working together
with We the people
of planet earth
to improve
the overall well-being of
all THE HUMAN-KIND
through open communication
in the form of dialogue
that will nurture WORLD HEALING
and creating a benevolent
social environment
one that will lead THE HUMAN RACE
as ONE RACE
to be more willing and able
to bring about WORLD PEACE

this is why the creator
of the book series Nature ~ IQ:
Let’s Survive, Not Die !
within the spirit
of me being me
a PRO-HUMAN social activist
mystic
performance artist
focused on THE HUMAN RACE
will be an organizing member
of “C.O.P.s this acronym

the vision of peace for THE HUMAN RACE

12573679_1256339917713297_4353624326888923125_n

the vision of peace
for THE HUMAN RACE
its full contour and shape
WILL
remain blurred
tattered and torn
from the social unrest
of day to day living
that brews and stirs
among the human-kind
as the blood of discontent
and strife
swiftly
flows along
the streets of life …
until the overall well-being
of ALL THE HUMAN RACE
is improved to reduce
the social unrest
of day to day living
the vision of peace
for THE HUMAN RACE
its full contour and shape
WILL
remain blurred

Peace Out !

a way to peace for THE HUMAN RACE

12523110_1256210451059577_1856729597636106049_n

when I ponder this matter
of finding a way to peace
for THE HUMAN RACE
as a mystic
its message
its fulfillment
can be perplexing
it can captivate
the mind
for hours
without resolution
the way to peace
ain’t easy
at the end of the day
though
the human struggle for it
its achievement
will be well worth
the effort  …..
….   the benefit to all
beyond imagination
so it seems
to me
when I ponder this matter
of finding a way to peace
for THE HUMAN RACE
as a mystic

peace out
