"call to peace" by J. Hakim Brown
let every star that lends a spark
of noble gases in contrast
to the dark
and timeless night's
bid to resist the fateful decay into day
pale against the ideas of men
with stalwart hearts
and lucid dreams
if with one voice
we'll blend our choices into popular wisdoms
then poised against dissenting
that spit at freedom's polar opinions
every step we take in unison
will lead to common consequence
here perhaps is where prophecy
paints its truths into history
and faith gives way to God's appeal
unto the senses
of all men
to represent our holy texts
and answer our tearful prayers
may this address not be a dress
or call to arms those filled with hate
and armed with toxins and missiles
but yet be an appeal
for the manifestation of peace.
Loving You by Christina Sola
Knowing you was like a dream,
For evey touch I had to scheme.
time I saw you my heart Twirled,
You are the only one for me in this world.
I wanted to tell you how I feel,
how I hoped all my dreams were real.
I wanted to hear your name,
And stop playing this game.
When you left my world
And now everything seems so wrong.
I need you touch,
I need to hear your voice so much.
I Will cry all
of my tears,
Over you these many years.
It drives me crazy, what should I do?
I'm going crazy loving you.
Sisterhood by Eve Hall
Different sizes, shapes, and colors
yet, we all have some of the
Male problems, children problems,
mood swings, mental and physical problems,
you name them, we have
We comfort each other, get on each other's nerves.
Sistahs assisting Sistahs, who are like us?
You give me
your shoulder to cry on,
I give you my helping hands.
You give me advice and strength,
I give you my listening ear.
give you my love and support,
you give me your friendship.

Dear Doctor by Molly
I was sick, but you made me better
I have one
simple question to add
Did you pass my sickness on to my Dad?
For if you did
I would like to make a small wish or
Will you make him better,
after you receive this wonderful letter?
Point Shoes by Molly
I put on my toe pads
Soft as can be
This is perfect for me
I begin to stand up and walk around
Off the ground
teacher tells me what she has found
Me, me a perfect dancer!!!
Morning quietness, Fog Still Lingers by Gary Shaver
Morning quietness, fog still lingers,
The silence, broken only by the singing of waking birds,
And the breeze,
making its way through rustling autumn leaves,
Falling in eternal slumber, upon my bed,
A blanket covering, holding
me in a sleep
from which I struggle to awake while listening to
the morning quietness, fog still lingers,
silence, broken only by the singing of waking birds,
with the breeze, making its way through rustling autumn leaves,
in eternal slumber, upon my bed,
a blanket covering which holds me in a sleep,
from which I struggle to awake, while
in futility drifting off,
to the Morning quietness, and the fog still lingers.
You by Shanaia Harris
For you are who you are never allow anyone to change you.
you do then you don't know who you are .
you are the actual lost soul.
For you are unique you can not allow yourself
to live a life like someone else.
You have to learn to love and respect yourself becuase no one else will if you
day you will have to realize that people don't fail you, but you fail
You are dependent and don't depend on
others to help you reach your goal in life.
Someday you may make a difference in this world.
For you have to be strong
and express all your opinions or feelings.
Plus stand up for every word you preach.
"My Love" by Sara
I barely saw you today,
No word did I say
You are in
love with not me,
But I love you, you see
And if one day we'll be together,
Then I will be happy, forever and ever
we reach that great day,
I have but one thing to say,
I love you
