By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.



As I stand upon this hillside point

Looking out over streams, trees and grass

I feel rejuvenated

Able to tackle the life down below

As I stand above it all

The sun shines down upon my face


Embracing me with natural love

A few clouds form off to the west

Despair lingers

The cold winds whip through the country side

Oh how I wish

I could take the rays of sun

And offer warmth and happiness

To those oh so cloudy skies

Calamity of the Poetic Mind


By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


The flow of my pen

The curve of my script

Blends the confusion of thoughts

Expressed by a mad man on a mission

Genius and insanity are kissing cousins

These unique words intertwine in your mind and bend your thought process

They weave a story

They weave a rhyme

Sprawled across a blank page are words

Plucked from the realm of my unconscious

Randomness travels from a neuron to the landscape of paper

Like an artist on a canvas I paint a tapestry with my words

In a trance I write

Hypnotized by the inspirational muse that finds me that day



Each feeling draws a verse from the pages in my mind

I laugh at the absurdity of my mind as a book

The greatest story never told

These poems are pages of an unwritten masterpiece
