I'm facing uncertainty today

Posted by Lamont Carey on September 5, 2011 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Everyday I wake up less aware of the struggles that dominated my life weeks ago. I was build to achieve. Today, I face my new challenges with fear, self-doubt, and uncertainty. However I am always determined to overcome the obstacles and they will be forgotten just like all the rest.

The news-reporter said make sure you have flashlights, candles,extra batteries and canfood. What in the hell are we about to do, go camping! Shoot. They should have told us to grab goggles and a raft! Remember Katrina!

Was Martin Luther King, Jr. Right to fight segregation

Do you think Martin Luther King, Jr. was right to fight for integration? How many friends of another race do you or your children have? Does your community or school practice to segregation? Why?

My fame is not to blame

But it heightens my family?s? shame

Simon said I couldn't but now the world screams my name

But it couldn?t help my nephew

Nor my mother too

And my brother God help his soul                                    

But momma didn't want to leave the ghetto

Like my success was still a dream

Momma not wanting to give up everything

So she blames it on memories

Like we been holding ourselves back for centuries

But Chicago was safe

Despite the rising murder rate

But gun shots we all know to well

Hollywood is a harder sell

These are my roots

Boyfriends having a passed that loves to shoot

So I ran

I sang

I acted

Like my momma was alright where she was at

But she won't change

So I figured I?ll buy the family nice things

But that hurts

I have accomplished so much but it doesn't work

We can leave now

We can leave now

But here ears remained closed

Still blocking out the sounds of the ghetto

We don?t hear nothing

We don't say nothing

We don?t see nothing

We don?t become nothing

Victims

For not wanting to escape

He Calls

Posted by Lamont Carey on June 18, 2008 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (0)

He searches the world for her eyes

At times he likes mine

But just not the same

He turned her name into my name

and i would be a lie if i said it doesn't cause pain

Like i wasn't accepted

knowing with my ears that i am not being rejected

but it still hurts

under my breath i still curse

not at him

never at them

but sometimes at her

sometimes at her

then myself

looking outwards to blame someone else

like he's weighing our love

and finds me to be more of a dud

so i bleed

everytime my son calls me Mommy

I Make Love To Hope

Posted by Lamont Carey on February 27, 2008 at 6:31 PM Comments comments (1)

I make love to hope
Hoping that when a kid runs in this school to make gun smoke
That the trigger says no
That the dope dealer says no
That the misled little girl says no
That color lines become so blind
 it erases bad times

I make love to hope
That suicide bombers say no
That dictators say no
That super powers say no
That we understand that we can?t use God?s words to change folks
Regardless of the way you spell it God says no
Jesus says no
Allah says no
Budda says no
Tired people say no

I make love to hope
That you don?t have to stab folks in the back to cope
That anything is possible
If you believe it to be so
That good men live
That honest women live
That we both can raise our kids
Without separate homes

I make love to hope
I just wonder why you don?t

I look in the eyes of my frail grandmother

I wouldn't trade her for no other

she whispers they're going to kill him

because white people believe in him

Just like they did king

Made every black person fear his dream

Just like they did Malcolm X

Now this blackman will be next

Baby, don't vote for him

you will be condemning him

To die

Tears filled both of our eyes

for different reasons

For what we both believed in

I never knew she had this fear

sounded like she was saying?don't talk to loud for masta may hear

But i was so enraged

She was one of the people that encouraged me to be anything

She taught me about the civil rights

the water fights

blacks losing their life

for what they believed were their rights

but in 2008

she wants to take that away

From me

For a country that wants change

for a black man that wants to prove we were kings

she wants to silence everyone

Seeing the flash back in her eyes when a blackman was hung

She wanted to run

But her eyes wouldn't close

so she let hope go

then in the sixties she got it back

felt good to be black

until martin was shot

again she fought her tears back

but got comfortable with sharing the same space

despite the fact she was reminded of her race

Now this blackman has taken a stand

And he wants to be the man

and all she can see is a blackman being hanged again


 

Loving U N Circles

Posted by Lamont Carey on April 18, 2007 at 4:16 PM Comments comments (2)

The feel of your tongue being scaled by mine

Helps me to unwhined and rise at the same time

The heat from your cheek

Makes me desire to continue to eat your speech

But instead your neck i seek

Sucking you as if u were breathing life into me

And your left nipple

Makes my fingers grip your bottom as if I was becoming cripple

But I pull you into me

Hearing your moans of pleasure sing to me

Makes the journey to your naval  a must

Losing myself inside there and firmly grabbing your tush

This is how souls suppose to be

escaping

To watch us

Unaware of anything else because of our trust

I move and drink you as if from a cup

And you were over flowing before I arrived\

I just tilted u to be sure I get all of what's inside

Never would I hurt u

I just want to love u in circles

Her Happiness

Posted by Lamont Carey on February 27, 2007 at 10:33 AM Comments comments (3)

I wanted to be the reason she felt life was perfect

 

So I showed how my love is more than worth it

 

She needs a man that keeps storms away and love alive

 

The world will know her happiness because it will reflect in her eyes

 

Right where I reside

 

With me she will never be alone

 

I promise that I will never be gone

 

Her strong arms to hold her steady

 

Never forcing anything on her just helping when she is ready

 

Loving her doesn?t describe how I feel

 

Jumping through clouds chasing sunlight would describe my thrill

 

She is everything I adore

 

Building a life with her who could pray for more

 

She sets new standards of being human

 

Being a woman

 

And I declare I will worship her at her throne

 

Servant, lover, friend, soul mate

 

I will be the overseer of her fate

 

Protect her soft skin

 

With all that I am

 

Refusing to allow her to experience a chill

 

She looked over at me and said,

 

You are trying to control how I live
