TALK TO THE DADDY

Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

Sing with Me: Another Poem from The Daddy

Sing with me
by Mac Walton

1

I am one with earth
wind and sky

I am a towering, thunderous waterfall hurling through mist.

2

From mountains I roar, an emboldened
life-force raging into darkness then
plunging to depths to complete myself.

3

I lift from the darkness, glide through the mist,
smiling and weaving in and out of liquid
semi-circles again naturally.
Free.

4

I am free.
Sing with me!

I don't care for the dark, but I'm all about gliding through the mist.

You're not going to hold my head down too long right MacDaddy?

Hahahahahaha
