The Truth (Writing as Curiosity)

The blood gushing from civilian stomachs
each picture taken, a sickening moment
each cover-up, a testament to
America’s Underground Railroad.
 
The bombs bursting in air
America’s good fortune is threatened
even America plays by its own rules.
 
Innocent children become fatherless
consumed by constant relentlessness
victims of foreign bombing.

On the Doorsteps (Writing as Curiosity)

 
Constantly knocking
constantly falling short
constantly coming up short of my goal
constantly fighting acceptance
a constant disapproval I let get me down
constantly wearing a depressed face.
 
Constantly walking without any sense of direction
a constant downpour of pain and suffering, deception and deceit
constantly settling for no Bianca
constantly having no sunshine in my city
constantly settling for last place no more!

Angel’s Passion (Five-Year Anniversary)

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Yesterday, October the sixth, marked the five-year anniversary of my second book of poetry, Angel’s Passion being published by PublishAmerica. Time sure has elapsed in such a quick manner. In celebration of this milestone date in time, I will be posting five poems from the book. I hope you enjoy! Once more, I am grateful to everyone that has continued to visit my poetry blog. I know you have plenty of other choices.

– Charles Banks, Jr.

 

Here’s the synopsis of Angel’s Passion:

“From the mind and heart of Charles Banks Jr. comes a poetic story of escaping the past and embracing the bright and vibrant light at the end of the tunnel. Angel’s Passion is the tale of a unique individual (Black Angel) who is lost within the confines of a self-inflicted dark tunnel. The tunnel is cold and is a constant reminder of the mistakes he has made in life. The tunnel of darkness serves as a greenhouse effect, a suppression of emotions, confliction of a confused mind, and a beacon of eternal despair. For Black Angel to escape this tunnel of darkness, the following are needed: love, freedom of spirituality, and self-understanding.”
