I am your constant companion
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden
I wil push you onward or drag you down to failure
I am at your command
Half of the task that you do might just as well turn over to me and I will do them quickly and correctly
I am easily managed
You must merely be firm with me
Show me exactly how you want something done; after a few lessons, I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great people and alas of...Read Full Post »

From the Book: AGAINST ALL ODDS" by Armando Valladares.
They've taken everthing away from me
because they don't want
me to write
and they've sunk me here
in this cell
but they aren't going to drown me
They've taken everything away from me
-or almost everything-
I still have my smile
the proud sense that I'm a free man
and an eternally flowering garden

While my mind is in a place of bewilderment, my spirit embraces the fullness of Divine Grace. It is from this Grace I live. but I am human.
Should I tell Brother Rainn that a child whom he had known and mentored had been found dead. He resides behind the walls in a 6x9 cell, should I bring to him more burden, such tragic news of the passing of Robin, a child not much older than his bioogical daughter. Should I tell him the semi-unknown story of her death, that ...Read Full Post »

When you are called to do God's work and you are not fully engaged in it, God constantly reminds you by sending the experience of others to you. Is it my voice that is needed to make an impact, to help to heal the pain of mothers who have lost their children in the street due to violence. Or am I simply to listen. ,This has been a trying week for me, I must do something to help these women, I hurt for them and at times I feel helpless. May God give them the strength to go o...Read Full Post »

I have been taking the most from the worst
Creating monsters like fleet ships
Stretching my abuse for a lifetime
Maybe even passing it on to my lifeline
I have been abusing my life so terribly
Dreams standing still in my head while fear constanly rings the bell
Clouding out the good thoughts that life has to tell
Why do these abusive thoughts continue to lead my life
Waiting up for me daily day and night
Is it that I am ...Read Full Post »

I have been behind the scenes for the last half of 2015. After 17 years, we are acclimatizing MeJah Books-from The Tri-State Mall to a new location- Holly Oak Shopping Center on Philadelphia Pike in Claymont Delaware. Yes, I know, change is constant and it is important that we are prepared to deal and accept change. But, I don't know, a new year is here and still so many tears! Our young brothers are still dying in the streets and/or heading to prison. The new ye...Read Full Post »
