Justice For Trayvon

Should not have been as elusive as it has become

How can lady justice rest easy in the realization

That a young boy with the apparent promise

To live too, and likewise stand his ground to

Defend his precious life and the right to walk

Boldly to his father’s abode in the land of the free,

Such freedom, previously denied by shackles and ships,

Was gunned down before the prime of his short life…

With no remedy forthcoming for his cold body.

Yet, his choice of garment becomes a negative focal point,

And though racial connotations seem tragically minimized

They loom large in the quest for justice for more than the dead

For alas, justice for Trayvon is indeed justice for all.

Lest we all someday are subject to dreadfully wrong assumptions

Causing the fabric of society to disintegrate to the detriment of all.

Shoot us not merely because of the skin …

Benjoy’s Corner X-6

Failed Agenda

What is defeat, but another challenge,

Encountered along the way, which may

Inherently seek to derail and project lingering

Emotions of dejection and hopelessness.

Why give it the opportunity, to execute

Its untoward agenda and pervade the

Remaining course with that abject resignation

When assuredly, it can be limited in essence.

Nay, squarely determine to reverse the tide

By employing inward resilience and valor

In favor of transcending the circumstances, and

Certainly defeating that which seeks to defeat.

Don’t be discouraged!

The Unlikely Springboard

The question …

Is not why they hate you

For hate has been present through the ages.

Rather, the preferred inquiry should be

Will you allow such hate, to pin you down

Wallowing deep into the abyss of self-pity.

Or propel you, onto motivation’s pathways

Undeterred, in continuous pursuit of your dreams.

Choose wisely…  for your life

Is worth the best effort you can muster on its behalf

Rather than dwelling with such draining negativity.

Benjoy’s Corner 7 (Betrayal’s Diaries-iv)

Whether lurking in the shadows of the night.
Or unsheathed by the piercing scrutiny of vigilance.
The traitor’s cloak, is woven with deceitful fibers,
Saturated with disguise and peculiar camouflage.
Most often, undetected by the encircled prey
As it, adeptly advances to foist its might, on the
Unsuspecting for the simple pleasure of ruination
To its pure satisfaction, and sheer macabre delight.

Be wise…

Benjoy’s Corner 7 (Betryal’s Diaries-iii)

Treachery in its very essence
Seeks furtively only to betray.
Indeed, it but strives fervently
Not to provide fair warning
Of its impending deception.
Rather, inherent to its nature,
Withholds notice, until its
Diabolical agenda reveals itself
Perchance, or through the signature
Of its cruel deeds and ensuing ordeal.

Be wise…

Benjoy’s Corner 7 (Betrayal’s Diaries -i)

Betrayal, is beholden to nobody but its own anarchy

Its paths of destruction, holding no mercy for those

Who unaware, find themselves within its unbridled fury,

For with determination, it intently eliminates all fairness

As consolidates its shores to advance its desires only.

Beware …
