Fire and Water written by J.V. Stanley & A.N. Ramey

J.V. Stanley & A.N. Ramey Fire and Water
Two lifelong poets, sisters, and best friends have fused together to bring you a variety of poems designed to melt the heart and inspire the soul. Separated for a time and coming back together stronger than ever they proudly present, "Fire and Water." The poems touch upon the earthly and otherworldly cares, delving into the complexities of the soul through the various trials faced through love, heartache, and everything in between. Join them on their journey through the dark and into the light. Travel with them through the gauntlet of poetic life with its obstacles at every turn. Each challenge they faced, however, paved the way for them to step forward with fierce determination and ever present love. Their poetry is mostly free-verse, but touch upon various forms such as the Kyrielle, Harrishma Rhyme, the Italian Sonnet, Etheree, and Twin Etheree.

NEW YEAR's WEEK 2013! Pen'D Poem Dec 30-Jan 5


January 4, 2013

The Reason I rhyme…. 

So many of us half way crooks wit good looks…. Central booked… First time felons… The statistics constantly swelling… School of Hard Knock lessons… Forced confessions… Prolonged criminal court sessions… Self respect we have to keep caressing…Forget all the second guessing...Hard to escape our labeled professions…… Parole or probation both life long situations…No stock options… Our only alternative is to develop self entrepreneurship creations…Running out of time… No more of it left to be wasting...

No more poison seeping through our pores…No more glass pipe indention's in our jaws… No more victims of these flawed laws… Living with the illusion of reformed correction… in a system in need of a whole lot of inspection… Released to the world facing rejection after rejection… Strike two the first one our complexion… So close… Yet so far from perfection…On the outside looking in… Robbed of a second chance to win…

Premeditated reservations for life in and out of the pen… Hungry and thirsty we hit the streets in our quest to eat… Only to be thrown back in the lions den…For our lives we constantly have to compete… Bodies full of ink… Screaming to the world what we think…Hyped off the stereotypes... We masturbate on Skype… Black and proud but losing our will to fight… All through the night we dream of seeing the light… Our everyday inner city plight…

Landscape reversal like herbs we get seduced to the suburbs… Changing places with the nerds…We seemed have forgotten everything we ever learned…Like the Churches that got boomed and burned…Am way pass ready for my turn…The ink from pen my last chance to earn… Obsessed with shine… While being lifelong witnesses to the awful things we do and they do to our kind… As we age like fine wine…Only to wake up one day to the realization we just ran out of time…

The Reason I rhyme…
