L trainin’

The river of people flow into the subway

Rushing like a waterway from stop to stop

Upstream and Downstream

Downtown to Uptown

From place to place and point to point

The river of people flow into the subway some on their phones on the way to homes and everywhere in between

Their heartbeats create heat as the trains ebb and flow from bank to bank

Wading through the sea of people

I find my way in the flow

Unstoppable this wave of flesh coursing through the city

The river of people flow into the subway rushing like a waterway

And I find my way in flow

Does the L go to the O?

 

Black hot

Snow drifted down melting on my melanin – it never had a chance

My inner light fire bright and strong third eyesight

Melting obstacles just like that snow

Each trial an opportunity to grow

Snow drifted down melting on my melanin – it never had a chance

Burn it Down Beautiful | It’s a New Year

Expectation burned hot on the back of my throat

Melted away intentionally with the Vick’s like vapors of optimism and blind faith I rubbed all over myself

It was time to heal and to believe in something more

Something real

Ambition radiated off my being

Anticipation of the new days and adventures to come wake me up earlier and keep me up later

The last few embers of the burning expectation give way to the warm coming of new words

New worlds

I am lit and this is only the beginning
