KENNETH'S POEMS

 
 
 
 

"SOLITARY CONFINEMENT"

These isolation walls...
The creep
And they crawl.

Lurking for
That single moment of
Mental weakness to befall.

If you become hopeless,
Or spiritually fall

This walls they'll have
A feast for you soul

-Kenneth Reams

 

"WE MUST IF WE WISH"

As common people,
We must fight for each other,
If we wish to see Rights for each other.


As activists,
We must believe with each other,
If we wish to achieve with each other.

As leaders,
We must teach each other,
If we wish to reach each other.

As friends,
We must pray with each other,
If we wish to see a better day with each other.

As peace makers,
We must embrace each other,
If we wish to embody the dreams of each other.

As humans,
We must talk to each other,
If we wish to walk with each other.

As a whole
We must stop thinking we are above each other,
If we wish to share the true meaning of love with each other.

We must...if we wish.

-Kenneth Reams

 

"UNTITLED"

We are
Our consciousness,

We are
Our awareness,

We are,
The measurement of our thoughts.

-Kenneth Reams

 

"IN LIFE"

Sometimes you have to
Cry from the pain.

Sometimes you have to
Let your heart lead.

Sometimes you have
Lose just to gain.

Sometimes you have to
Deal with all the blame.

Sometimes you have to
Walk in the rain.

Sometimes you have to
Fall down non your knees.

Sometimes you have to
Trust and Believe.

-Kenneth Reams

 

"THE DAY I DIE"

On the day I die...
 I wonder if my principles and beliefs will have meant anything.
I wonder if I will truly served my purpose in life or if there was still more left for me to do.

On the day I die...
I wonder if the world will miss me or
If I would even be remembered for anything that I did (whether good or bad).

On the day I die...
 I wonder how my heart will feel about death and the life that I lived.

On the day I die...
I wonder if anyone will pray to God for me
and ask Him to open the gates for the coming of my soul.

-Kenneth Reams

 

"MY POLITICIANS"

Stop killing us and start healing us.
Stop building more prisons and start building us schools.
Stop making new laws -- instead, correct the laws of today.
Stop giving us dope and give us hope.
Stop lying to the people and give us the truth.

I request,
Starting today...

-Kenneth Reams
