Alex Kenneh Poems
I love her mind, but not in the slightest did I know her name. She was the blank face in my dreams. I always played the guessing games trying to find out how to approach her. Life may be a struggle. Sticks and stones do inflict pain. But the word rejection tore me apart.
Oblivious synapses, flashing lights, Frames collapsing, distinguishing nights, Born sinner affliction vindication, A Crowe picks at her brain, conservation.
Amazing bliss night wishes fray, Absolute hope for this day, For what no one can say, Destined only way,
Wouldn't trade this fireside chat, Or You on the balcony, more Beautiful than Juliet honestly, Remember the times,
Concepts of daunting wonders Imagine her imagine queen Standing next to me Should I speak up knowing
Eyes still and wishing, Sunrays on their faces, Grasp of set minds, Unexposed to a cold world,
Dad's promises couldn't make the cut and for some reason I only had a father when I looked up. My mom was all I needed so I can't afford to keep wasting time helping an absent parent that missed my childhood play catch up. Age twelve or younger a brother had big dreams of the oval office, balling on the court or the field, and being the ideal father; I never had when I was younger. To this day my oldest cousin stays honest with me. Whether she is encouraging me or disturbing my peace.
Voice of many waters Served time like waiters Delivered for our offences Still being crucified
A Better Man
I want to be with this girl cause she makes me want to be a better man. When we converse this girls' stubborness makes me laugh. Love is always expressing whatever is on her mind. She's beautiful, faithful and ambition entwined.
Hardcore gamer viewing life in terms of levels. So I tend to ignore bonus points to reach the next level. Sort of like leaving Smallville for Metropolis. Extremely disciplined good game but I am still willing to settle. Deep voice added with me being black might make anything I say sound gang related. Grew up like Will Smith in Bel Aire don't make me hood or nothing. City of brotherly love is where I am from, but for whatever reason I have yet to see it.
Does it demand ambition? Beckon the Heart – Ascend think of new endeavors, Or does failure descend
Just Like A Star
Delivered a rebel that resented himself. Complicated taste but some called me a picky eater. Life style started as a trouble maker only due to no man of the house to set him straight. Labelled enough times probably too many to count. By no means delusional, abstract individual reminiscent over the full course of his life. Hungry for the freedom to choose what I am entitled to. Life's circumstances upsetted him, he couldn't stomach not being able. Courtsides where education was taught over a game of pick up. Decifering how they crossover to better suburbs with less problems that held a tight grip on my family. Other's mean looks and cruel acts kept him distant on simple grounds that he was black.
The Color of Sunshine
Unforgiveable pigment, That One day, dream intent, We are blood sport, suspect, Environment got us violent,

I love her mind, but not in the slightest did I know her name.
She was the blank face in my dreams.
I always played the guessing games trying to find out how to approach her. Life may be a struggle. Sticks and stones do inflict pain.
But the word rejection tore me apart.
Reminiscing about the past me wondering if I could get past the old me.
Shy, quiet only kept myself. Me, myself and I until one of us gave up on chasing the dream.
So many ladies in the world but so few of my dreams. No matter what I had in my thoughts everything about her had fascinated me.
My minds ...
