Father and Son

When dawn arise the rays of sunshine

on this face that captured me

from the moment of existence

smiling heartbeat of perfection that’s mine

been borrowed from God himself you see.


For now you learn the basics

of how creation has its own wonder

beauty causing to this world topics

unanswered thoughts putting them under.


My boy, learn to capture breaths and moments in time

cause the walk we take was never mine.


Snow-White Pearl

I have placed you in the mollusk of Sodom

where the blind follow wealth and power

known to keep bread braking

for poor crumbs of sorrow.

Gomorrah secrete your union of oneness

thought my dust would vanish in the waves

of history repeated words and cries

brought forward from generations.

Stripping away your darkened vision

with ways unknown to your molding

forming my speck of dust

preparing my pearl with snow-white crust.
