Trying to waste my energies,

As you expose the energy~vampire that you are?…
To feed off of my soul, for your own strength.
Be careful of the game, that you play,
As I too, know of its existence.
Are you upset, because the tables have turned,
Your goals are spurned, and it is I, who has drained you?
As you lay, gasping in the wind,
Wondering about the chaotic, weak & helpless state, you’re now in…
You have received the Scorpions Sting…
It is indeed, the survival of the fittest.

“Where Is The Humanity, Where Is The Love?”


Bustling about, here and there, to and fro.
Everyone having somewhere to go.
Heavy hearts, heavier souls,
Losing the energies within self.

Accustomed to the reality of the down-trodden,
Stepping over and past the bodies of the weak

Oblivious and tuned-out,
To the cries of the silent.

Too intertwined with the blindness,
Of ones’ own plight and flight in the world of the materialistic.

Open your soul, open your mind, and open your heart,
To that place in which love resides.

Remembering that we are Spirits,
Having a Human experience – Human Beings.

Help Me, Help You, Help We,
Will forever close the gap of heartless ignorance.


It is within us all, from the beginning of existence.
Love, Be Love, Give Love, Receive Love.
We can end this needless suffering.

*Inspired by my experience in feeding the homeless and the hungry in Jamaica, NY.

“Universal Over-standing”


“Universal Over-Standing”
“We are there, here, everywhere,
and anywhere.
Limitless and able to create, wherever we go”.

Greater than even the expectations
of self.
Risen from the ashes of destruction,
Filled with the “Knowledge of Self.”

Created solely within,
Flooded with the power of the Universe,
Mirroring the reflections of one another.

Melaninated Gatekeepers, awakening…
Forging their rightful places.
Overcoming the distractions, created,
To “Divide & Conquer” HUMANITY.

“Sacrifice, Responsibility, Healing, Resolve, Challenges, Unconditional Love”

“I Heard Your Voice”


“I Heard Your Voice”

It was plain and distinct.

Rich and deep.

Rumbling, like the roar in the deepest part of the jungle.

Even though I’ve heard it,

so many times before…

This time, it spoke a language, that caused my soul to take heed.

“I Heard Your Voice.”

Thousands of miles away.

Almost as if we were in two different worlds.

Through time and distance. Loud and clear.

My eyes lit up,

Blood rushed to my cheeks.

Causing a smile that illuminated my entire being.

Giggles burst forth,

As the child within,

Stuck her head out to play.

The comforting growl, of a deep and long connection,

That has ridden the skirt-tails of time.

Reaching to grab hold, of a love that will not die…

“I Heard Your Voice.

“There Are No Magic Answers…Or Are There?”

“There Are No Magic Answers…Or Are There?”

I get this quite often (not to come off as being cocky, conceited or a Know-it-all), “Max, it’s easy for you, you have all the answers, you’re sooo strong!” Ohhh please, bullshit, lol! I am as strong and as weak as I allow and make myself to be. I also am very firm with being true and real with, ME.

I find, that many seek answers, that they already know or have, but are looking for either confirmation, denial or fuel for a pity-party. I keep my “real friends” list very, very small.  I have no patience for the drama, but I over-stand that people are struggling.  I was as well and can, if I do not confront and deal with my own things in life. But how long can one expect to be cradled, coddled and babysat, before it gets tedious? And it will happen. Because sooner or later, others will get tired of it, start avoiding, seem to be ALWAYS too busy and many find themselves alone, wondering why the world is so cold.

So, I can easily say, “There Are No Magic Answers…Or Is There?” Everyone has the answer and solutions to their own issues. “WE ARE THE MAGIC!” Each one of us. But are you using, abusing or even acknowledging it? Many consistently look outside of self to find the answers, solutions, or what have you, to the roadblocks or situations in their existence.  Oh, how the psychiatrist make their money, lol! And yes, there are some people who really cannot get in touch with their inner-selves, are completely confused and a hodgepodge of emotions, flying all over the place, so they need help and direction. But what do these psychiatrists always say, sooner or later? “YOU have the answers and it’s all up to YOU.” “What would YOU do?”  “How do YOU feel?” get the picture yet? YOU ARE THE MAGICAL ANSWER!

We all, are more powerful than we even know and or realize. You can go on an infamous quest, do meditation, yoga, take a vow of celibacy/silence, surround yourself with people, become a workaholic, cater to negative energies, cater to positive energies, and or any other things that come to mind. None of these things will suffice, if you do not confront, deal, feel, heal and love YOURSELF. Now many of these things, can lead you on a journey, that will do what? Bring you right back to SELF, lol! Learn to LOVE YOURSELF through all the madness, sadness, joys, pains, tears, fears, rights and wrongs…Forgive YOURSELF for it all and others. What others think of you…really, does it matter? Those who are negative and miserable are also fighting themselves. If they project this onto you? It’s simply their way of dealing with their own mess. Don’t sop up their negative juices. People can shower you with love and it still won’t work. WHY? “YOU HAVE TO LOVE YOU “, because you’re the only You, you’ve got…You’re the only YOU there is…and dammit that is something special!

Now, go look in the mirror, give yourself a big hug and say, *“I LOVE ME, SOME ME!” Give yourself positive reinforcement. It’s so easy to be your own worst critic and to feed into the negative crap! Try being your own best friend, caressing, loving your spirit and soul with some positive vibes.

*My older brother, told me to try this. I thought he was stir crazy and laughed at him. But one day, I decided to try it. At first? I felt stupid telling myself how much I loved myself. I even walked away a few times from the mirror, thinking, this is dumb. The third time, I looked at my reflection, I tried to say the words and I couldn’t. I started to cry. I then looked at myself and saw the little girl, lost, hurt and grown…holding onto the fabric of nothingness. I had to confront that during my life, love wasn’t there much or often, from others or towards myself. I made it part of my purpose, to give myself positive pep-talks and love winks. Sometimes I catch a glimpse of the little girl, laughing back at me…And that? That’s the best part.
