about

Chronicles of a Revolutionary Dreamer: My personal diary of thoughts that I couldn’t always share with a listening world through conversation.  Most times, I would write these thoughts on any type of paper I could find until my wife bought me my first Peter Pauper Press journal. Usually, I would write while walking or taking public transit to work and school. Each poem inspired by events happening in our country in a “post-racial” America. You may notice this by some of the titles like Peace to Walter Scott, For Ferguson, 47 to 1 and Who is Burning Black Churches. The pieces range from police brutality, brown bag tests of grief, pride, hurt, liberation; all active ingredients for a revolution. 

The stories combined eventually became Chronicles of a Revolutionary Dreamer. A collection of poems written over the last 8 years. Some are tributes to those who have been immortalized by America’s sometimes unforgiving brutality. Some are a reminder of the hypocrisy written between the lines of her creeds. Some speak of the vulnerabilities of being a black man in a country, sometimes in a world, that loves you for the same reason it hates. Some speak of the black condition and the hope and optimism we all share while tackling the adversity of misogyny, ego, pride, fear, and the likes.  

Pieces like Honest Truth, the range of emotions and admissions growing up black in America to the accusatory Colonial Rape Made Me Self-Loathe, that blatantly and forwardly anoints colonialism as the original foundation for the class and race here in the United States of America.  

Chronicles of a Revolutionary Dreamer will be in two parts. First will be The Revolutionary Dreamer and The Inspirational Dreamer. The second part will be The Love Dreamer and The Dreamer. 

These are just my thoughts... Thoughts On Deaf Ears.
