Décima of Forgotten Miracles

dawn

We often ask for divine gifts
eyelids sealed and clasped fists, we dare
requests or wishes via prayer
while missing beauty that exists
surrounding us, we must cherish
like tangerine hue of sky’s dawn
lyrics from your favorite song
warm embrace of one who loves you
the flavor of the sweetest fruit
or image drawn with child’s crayon

What is Décima?

REBEL!!!

Rebel by Edaw Wade

REBEL: MALCOLM MARTIN ANGELA by Edaw Wade

you dare define me
mold my reality
predetermine my destiny
rewrite my history
i study your theory
and see
your acts are cowardly
so I scream loudly and do this proudly
closed fist raised above me
thirsty
for freedom you denied me
and I am worthy
oh yes, I am worthy
and those that stand with me
fifty times fifty times fifty times fifty
we
REBEL!!!
