It's Writers Wednesday! Here's the run down: 1. Peep the photo. 2. Write something from the impression it's made on you! It can be a poem, a word, or line - long, short, medium. All is fair game! Enjoy! #kingdomwriters #love #truth#poetry #creatives #photography
“The bombs going off in his head clouded his judgement with smoke, causing him to wave his white flag in his mental ware fare. He handed over the word, his weapon...to the enemy not realizing he had the victory already.”
And he asked himself, “Am I more than a vapor? Am I more than the color of my skin, the texture of my hair, and the amount of dimes in my pocket?”
@a__dying_breed that's a thick plot
@lisefarah 👏🏽 Nice!
“In the midst of the lies and many mask I wear to keep the world safe from myself.... you come in and disrupt my deception and show me that love is the weapon that blows to smoke the lies and fear and reveal the real me-the God in me.” Lise-Farah
I’m surrounded by clouds of darkness, fear, and shame. The unknown drives me insane. I’m not sure how to get out of this pain. Will the mundane ever be enough to sustain the refrain of this song I relay to you today? Certainly not because only the Light can get me out this abyss. Only the Blood can dispel the darkness. The sunlight brings hope. The greenery breeds faith. Life springs from Love and the darkness becomes no more. Written by Damien Ellison. Inspired by this post ☺️ @kingdomwriters #creativity #Spirit #flow
@lisefarah really love this! 👏
@kingdomwriters thank you!
It's a dark hood I'm in. Not because of neighborhood drugs or violence, but because of this loud engine that continues in the silence.
Light. Inhale. Blow. Good morning, good morning! ....still mourning...the loss of my motivation without forewarning. It's lost. It's gone. But it's time to get up, sing this song, get ready for these never ending thoughts all morning long.
Brush my teeth. Wash disgrace. You claim I'm all smoke and mirrors but I'm just trynna save face. Your reflection I see day to day, but maybe being fake helps me. Helps escape the fears of my identity.
I don't have time to be honest with myself. I'm strong. Don't tell nobody I need help. Everyone will think there's something wrong. You know we dont do that! Let a shrink talk to me? I'm good. Let's go. You have no choice but to keep me company.
Unless, maybe our God is a "shrink"? Maybe? Makes sense since he's the one who made me...I know I need help. I did pray yesterday.. Maybe he's already moving...this counselor keeps calling.. Maybe I should let go these dark belongings and take note of His hand...the grace for which I am longing.
@kingdomwriters thank you!
Every conspiracy, thought, dark moments i keep inside my dark hood, i find pleasure in being misunderstood. Im a testament of what its like to be a newborn, exposed to the coldness of this world has taught me how to stay warm, how to stay woke when isis comes beheading religious people for their religious beliefs, stay woke when aint friends they are just wolves pretending to be sheep, stay woke when the earth is inherited by the meek, stay woke when everything you reap has been sowed by a seed. Im conscious to my conscience and what it speaks, life can be such an illusion, well so are these streets. What has happen to our history? Have we allowed it to vanish like smoke? Have we become ghost? Is their spirit the utmost high ever toked? Is our hallelujahs to God the utmost high ever spoke? What do you fear most, life? Or not knowing what happens after? They say after every birthday is a different chapter, well... does it end when your years end?, or is there a new chapter when we make it into heaven?

@poetic.emcee imma do this!
Someone asked me one day who I was and all I could say was my name. A "label" of myself that I have yet to figure out because I can't see through this smoke of my past that does spontaneous visits like panic attacks. Whatever face you see on me today to you is true but to me is just another masked reminder that I keep having to put on an act to show you "Who I am"
Those thoughts think they can get me and at times they will. At times they will rip through me like a lion's claw to skin, at times they will be so unbearable as if a tonne of bricks were placed on my head, at times they will be so much that they will cloud my mind, steal my joy and block my shine. But little do they know about my strength. Little do they know that just like smoke, eventually they will just vanish, they will disintegrate and I, being the strong, magnificent person I am will rise again. I will soar through the sky, touch every cloud, climb every height, conquer every mountain, withstand every storm because I am unstoppable.
@paulnembhard do it bro
I became the smoke I choked on,
When my lips darkened from the papers vapor,
Thinking I could meet the Most High if I got the most high with my friends,
It all ended when I offended my brain cells,
But bended knees made me escape hells fury,
Truly I can now say that the highest I’ve ever been,
Was when Christ the King lifted me out of my sins.
"I'd rather hide....I'd rather hide what makes me unique... I'd rather cover...cover what's trapped underneath...my burns...my pain...my failures. Oh how I wish I could face this mirror...but until then, I'm just a slave to this terror....Lord, save me, my soul is yearning for better...days."
@paulnembhard *snaps aggressively*🙌
@coco_bellablues thanks so much!
@kingdomwriters thanks so much!
@kingdomwriters where’d you find this photo
Past the smog. Past the fog that clogs sight and might cloud your judgment. Past the hood. Past the Arizona heat and sweet spilled Skittles beneath your feet. Past the clock. Past the block's neighbourhood watch over hour walks.. home. Can you see me?
I'm stealing this photo is that's okay!
@meekspeaks_ oh my gosh. I love everything you say! 💪🏾💪🏾
