Terzanelle for Octavia Estelle Butler

Racism and violence were non-existent in this world

Of fiction, where the black women rescued the white men

To love, while the secrets of slavery were unfurled.



In science fiction, there was a leading light and a ben

Called Octavia Estelle Butler, or Junie in dreams

Of fiction, where the black women rescued the white men.



She wrote about power, disease, incest, love and screams.

Self-destructive violence and hierarchical tendencies

Called Octavia Estelle Butler, or Junie in dreams.



In a sad world of poverty and dependencies,

Without having a father, she learned to fight against

Self-destructive violence and hierarchical tendencies.



Maybe to feel superior in struggle was sensed,

When people were aware to fight for identity.

Without having a father, she learned to fight against.



In a world of mutes, Estelle found a new entity.

Racism and violence were non-existent in this world,

When people were aware to fight for identity

To love, while the secrets of slavery were unfurled.

You Lead Us

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word…..Martin Luther King, Jr.

You showed the way
Marched ahead in time to stay
For freedom and liberty
That was always blessed by almighty

You had vision of non violence
That was preached as golden chance
Millions of people backed your move to face trouble
You were an embodiment of classic struggle

You gave black people a hope
“Never think to stop”
If river stops water flow
The bank on both sides can not grow

As it happens for history to witness
There is stiff challenge on face
Still racism is on surface
Violation of freedom is always chased

As opportunists have hijacked movement
There is still no loss of happy moment
Some of us may come forward to work for poor
Blacks need not beg from door to door

“Long live O, messiah of peace”
You were on toes and never at ease
Your soul ended with one deadly bullet
We, the black people, may not allow or let

Peace march may remain on
The last hurdle may be crossed over and won
The nation may thrive along with inspiration
The bond may exist for strong relation

Dirge For Mandela

The soul departs, the body is dreary
As she comforts him from life's weary
A blind has no fortune of his
Except a help to grant his bliss
Many a warrior has in battle slept
To awake in world of death bereft
Many dirges in sweeping lines have rung
But all were mortal grieving song

No song or dirge can thy transit take
Nor can my rhyme restore thee awake
O, Mandela, Man of the people,
Wading thru tides bigotry cripple!
Thy passage, world dealt mortal blow
No death so shaken mortal has known

Rolihlahla, who stared tyrant death in face
To stall racism of my colour and race
I'm obliged to mourn thee everlasting
O Mandela, thy death is stinging!

Thy departure the world turns drab
Thy death shock they cannot grab
For without self gain you pulled the branch
Of racism, apartheid on thy ranch
No other has this feat attained
In a world in which calamity-contained

Nelson sleeps but to be greatly missed
A cue to the world who death cannot resist
Thy death shall be our occupation
And victory of black discrimination

E'en when my verse is published in classic mag
My occupation, shall I still thy death nag?
:
So, this is to the world to hear,
Nelson dies, but forever's here.

Be frank

IT'S REALLY SAD WE ARE IN THE YEAR OF 2013 AND THIS WORLD IS STILL TALKING ABOUT RACISM PEOPLE STILL FOCUS ON A PERSONS COLOR INSTEAD OF SEEING A HUMAN BEING. SAD THAT THIS IS WHAT KIDS ARE BEING TAUGHT! ! ..... Spanish Huggz


Let us be frank
And thank
To all those who preach
And privately teach

Spread the hatred
And be kindly led
Like fools
As we are all bloody full

World is still believing
Pain still not relieving
Racism raises head
To send us in gallows as dead

White is nice color
Black is no inferior either
Still prefer to go after bright skin
To have beautiful company and very much keen

This is universal truth
No one can deny as such
World may never change
Even we may grow old with age

What are we teaching to kids?
What thoughts we feed?
Nothing more special to impress
On the contrary dark picture before their face

We may talk of advancement
But in fact it is dismal movement
We are where we were
Nothing to surprise and no more to dare

* Note: - Poem is composed by me
