    Here's one I wrote not too long ago, If you would like to read it. I call it:

    "The Power Of One"

    I understand people fall into the clutches of evil, thinking its happiness.
    But once they bit the apple they never been and felt happy since.

    Hate is like Donald Trump running for president, irrelevant.
    Why have a man in power that can't create peace?
    Donald Trump; rich yet, can't pay attention to the streets.
    Where badged crusaders roam and claim they keep the peace.

    A ban move in use by the NYPD
    He was only 43; his life like juice freshly squeezed.
    Left behind his 3 month old daughter that he can't even feed.
    Held this verse for 19 seconds man, I can't even breathe.

    Thy kingdom come they say, they will be done they say,
    They pull out there driveways; aim all there gats and spray, and you know what happens sunday?
    They go to church to prey... On another victim. Will he survive from the pain inflicted?

    Honestly man, are you fond of what you have done?

    Guess that's why I was blessed with the initials JC.
    I don't mean Jesus Christ; he was never consumed by evil.
    But I mean Julian Costa a Saviour of my people.
    it starts with me, to spread peace and create unity.
    So instead of killing brothers like the purge does. Lets all come together and merge us.

  • I hate poetry. It's why I write it. To see if I can make something I don't hate. Still working on it...

  • I love the mysterious and romantic kind because it tries to put into words feelings that perhaps can't be put into words (at least by prose writing).
