They hate you because your you
They make up lies and call it true
They're fake behind your back
Hoping someday that you'll crack.

They hate you because your real.
no matter what they say you always heal
They're surprised to see you rise,
That you're not affected by all these lies


They hate you because you smile at them
It shows them that your a real gem
You are always true and do your best :)
Sometimes these haters just cant test

They hate you for no reason
Despite it all, you smile
whatever the reason
At the end of the day
All i'm gonna say
All i plan to be 
IS ME


-Sanderline Fleury :)

ashes in an urn

ashes in an urn
a lovely new urn

whose ashes are they
who was burned that day

what races
what religions
what sexes
what nationalities

maybe they’re all mixed in 
ashes indistinguishable and
undiscriminating in one 
could there be hope

Dig

Broken,beaten,blind and lost
All but a spark of hope left to keep warm
But dig and claw on bruised muscles, on broken limbs
Until the light day fills your sight
Left blinded no more
Dig
Until the soft fresh air blows the spark to a flame and ignites your will
Dig
Until the ground beneath is solid enough to stand
Walk,until the pain is mastered and stumbling ceases.
And you can say:
This will not be my grave.

Haiku 16: Bokoharam

'Boko Haram' is not an enemy.
It's a subject in an economy
of a corrupt country.

Martin Luther King Junior

Martin Luther King, Jr.

When innocent dies,
Whole universe cries,
Even of dear earth,
We can hear, outcries,
But selfish human being,
Never even sighs.

Fear of Terrorism

Fear of Terrorism

T raumatized tortured tumultuous feelings of trepidation
E ncapsulating effervescing emotions everywhere eventually
R esponding rapidly to ruthless and relentless repetition of
R evelations of  revolutionaries remorseless rapaciousness
O bstreperously obliterating outrageously the innocent
R etributions replicate as ramifications remonstrate
I nsurrection insidiously intensifies as ideologies immortalize
S trategically surreptitiously suffocating silently sons sanity
M ankind muses meticulously as methodologies morph into misery

FREE WILL

Haiku #12, 079-12,080...............................................Free Will

One man tend zillions
images my heart can't fend
Flesh, bones, pure ashes

One ill demagogue
Demented beyond compare
Ran himself to hell.

Anne Otto Frank

A wonderful young girl, Anne Otto Frank,
Was forced to live confined, like fish in a tank.
She could have been saved, if about her people knew....

But nobody cared, she was just another Jew.

of unjust harvest

    of unjust harvest

when will
the grim reaper
tire 
being cast murderer

how long will
stopped stalked beings
be blown away
like crows in forbidden fields

does not war yield
enough to be reaped

	or

will strange fruits
forever to be plucked
by the harvesters of hate

Poor fish have no chance whatsoever
Neither does the slowest runner in your group

Oh to be a Humble Sparrow

Oh how I wish I was a humble sparrow
So cheerful and so free
Flying high through the sky
Instead of living in hell in constant fear
In a barbedwire cage
Waiting to die.






''Let us not forget not only the Jews, but the Gypsy's,Jehovah's witnesses, political opponents, homosexuals, Russians, disabled, the elderly,children, and sick, anti Nazi's and more. To forget all or any of these groups of people, would be a crime in it'self, and undervalues their suffering and existence. Let the truth be told, we must never forget.''

Parasitic Life Form

It‘s alive!
A life form 
Thriving on hatred
Reaped from societies
Greatest blunder 
Like lighting
Follows thunder  
We are following our ancestors 
Reproducing civilization   
Mistake 
Disregard the fact
That we are all human
our blood is red
I smirk when I’m contented 
And shed tears when I’m poignant
We are all equal
cease  this schism 
And trounce racism

from rising to setting

  from rising to setting 

she saw sunshine
shooting above
the horizon

exploding
over pregnant
skies

sunset saw son
shot in back—black 
stopped on morning
side drive

baby rattler
found in hand

Shades of a Colored Man


Shades of a Colored Man

The signs use to read:
“For whites only”—
“Colored fountain”—water
clear as day.
If you’re brown
you may stick around;
but blacks must get back.

Today is equal opportunity employment
but your equity has been revoked;
job’s been passed on to another colored yoke.
Beside, you’re over qualified;
the shade of skin is not why you’re denied.

Then in the heat of day, you screamed and cried:
“Give me liberty or give me death!”
Your demand they granted immediately:
Today we dig your grave.

Faded

My mind is like a cage, 
my thoughts are like a trap,
everything good seems to fade.
My presence is a pest,
my "friends" have never been true.
I am finally fading into darkness,
my eyes are like pits of lava,
waiting to be my death,
there is not one soul i trust,
because trust will be my downfall.
I am finally faded.

Heartache On 4th Street

  How can I live my life
  Always standing in front of a knife
  So I'll get on the night train
  And I'll go to Spain
  I'll leave this kingdom, this life, and this shame
  So there won't be any more pain
  And so there won't be any one to blame.

South Africa 1985

I saw millions of roses
As I passed by the countryside	
All dead and laid before my eyes
Side by side.

THE GREATEST DEPRESSION

THEY'RE OUT ON THE STREET, WHERE IT'S COLD AND WET.  
THEY'VE ENDED UP THERE BECAUSE OF GOVERNMENT DEBT.  

SOCIAL PROGRAMS HAVE ALL GONE AWAY. 
SO NOW THEY BEG, BORROW AND PREY. 

A PRESIDENT SAID, THERE'S ROOM FOR HOPE. 
BUT WHEN YOU DON'T PLAN, IT'S MORE OF A JOKE.  

DESPERATE AND LONELY, OUT ON THEIR OWN.  
NO JOB AND NO MONEY, NO PLACE TO CALL HOME.  

THE FUTURE LOOKS DIM. THEY CAN'T SEE THE LIGHT.  
PEOPLE ROAMING THE STREETS, LIKE LOST ZOMBIES AT NIGHT.  

WHERE EVER YOU LOOK, IT SEEMS PRETTY DIRE.  
PEOPLE SLEEPING ON SIDEWALKS, NEXT TO SMALL FIRES. 

THE TRUTH OF IT ALL, IS THEY'LL ALL PASS AWAY. 
FOR MANY OF THEM, TODAY'S THE LAST DAY.

For Another Budding Child Flower

     For Another Budding Child Flower

Alone in the dark uterus of my bedroom
here I lie curled up in the thoughts 
and emotions of  the day.

Another budding flower
was plucked from the garden street
leaving its red sap as a jaded memento 
to stained innocence and hoodwinked justice.

Another aborted life spiraled away
as echoes of fading out cries floated
wearily on the reefs of passing time
covering awareness of another heinous crime
whose guilt will soon vanish from human notice.

Now with my cervical poised head on tear soaked pillow
I pray God that another flower be not plucked away tomorrow.

Confession

The fox gnaws flaking muscle
From speechless rabbit, cold
In mind and body. Men shiver
As bodies dry, spat from river.

Rings of globes circle hands
Of the thoughtless, so beaten
From paths to be told of Him, 
Waiting until eyes grow dim.

Walking among us is plague,
Standing above us is but love,
These winds will claw our youth
While faith entraps this truth.

Winter comes but we survive,
Breath and bones, colonies thrive.

Once More

Once More…
(Apropos Orlando)

Once more and again
bigotry spreads
like a keloid of shame
across the face
of the promise land.

Once more
liberty and justice
proves to be 
only for some—
serving Satan
in the name of God.

Once more
eschewed minds
flake death
to the tested innocent
living out 
the tried truth—
their being
who they are:
children of the same God
blasphemed with desecration
of name.

Untitled

You weren’t the gunman, but you didn’t want to see gay people kissing in public.
You weren’t the gunman, but you don’t like gay characters on TV.
You weren’t the gunman, but you think gay people are sinful and need saving.

You weren’t the gunman, but you were upset when gay people gained the right to marry.
You weren’t the gunman, but you use slurs for gay people.
You weren’t the gunman, but you would vote against legal protections for gay people.

You weren’t the gunman, but you’re the culture that built him.

You’re the bullets in his gun...

Holiday Mercy


Easter and Remembering King
Are both gone—Today
Another child is shot in the back.
A mother plays his last message
By phone—Another son murdered
For being black.

WHEN

for KNOCK US DOWN WITH YOUR LINES Contest

How many generations have to suffer
    the stings of those who would be bigger than
          they are?  Cain, Goliath, Saul, Hammurabi, Xerxes...

Other Ages were no respite from Despots.
     Caesars, Hannibal, Pharaohs, Machiavelli, Richard II, 
          and those of the Middle Ages.  All these made us suffer...

The Great War was only another step on the road of
     "Man's Inhumanity to Man". Hitler, Stalin, The Terrorists
          of today.  Can't we yet beat our swords into plowshares together...
