 National Poetry Month: A poem by Maya Angelou from The Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou. 

 

CHANGING

 

It occurs to me now

I never see you smiling

Anymore. Friends praise

Your humor rich, your phrases

Turning on a thin

Dime. For me your wit is honed

To killing sharpness.

But I never catch

You simply smiling, anymore.

(Never mind the closet behind me, some of my purses thrown up there.) My house is clean. 🙂

My Son and Me. He’s my heart, I Love him much! Say “hey Caleb!”

Love is as we live it. When we live the love we wish to receive, then is when we began to achieve only what we think is imagined. (For National Poetry Month)

PRAY FOR THE CITY/ CHICAGO

Pray For The City/ Chicago
By Veronica Michelle Benson

A law that is not for me
Is against me

How can I expect the same one
That convicts me
To acquit me

Pray for the city
Death and destruction
Is in the history
And is written
For a place
That’s sin ridden
Where crime is committed and then hidden

Pray for the city
Everyone is involved
All is lost

The devil’s for hire
But God is the boss
PRAY for the city!
