My response to the Ferguson verdict...

Lord, I believe in You
© 2014 All Rights Reserved, Syneeda Penland

I believe in the course of miracles,
I believe the Lord has touched my soul,
Lord, I believe in you.

I believe in a world of peace and love,
I believe in the Heavenly Spirit above,
Lord, I believe in you.

I believe together we can change the world,
I believe we can save the life
Of every young boy and girl,
Lord, I believe in you.

I believe in a world of unity,
I believe in a world of
Peace, love and harmony,
Lord, I believe in you.

Together as ONE human race
We can reach the sky;
Spread our wings so we can fly
Like angels in flight - perfect harmony;
Singing songs of peace, love and unity,
Lord, I believe in you.

Together we can believe in love,
Giving praise to all above,
Joining hands with all below,
Peace, love and harmony you will bestow;
Lord, we believe in you.

Food for thought:
You cannot cure evil with the same energy that fuels it.   ONLY LOVE can cure a demonic seed!!!  When you walk away from hate, you are not showing signs of weakness, in fact it’s the complete opposite.  

Imagine a racist person trying to learn how to love someone other than his own kind… It’s almost impossible because he’s been taught to hate since his birth, and even taught it to his children, so on and so forth.  If black men respond the way “they” want you to respond, you are no different than them!!! 

God knew this day would come again, brother joining forces with brother, to kill off the other.  Then will ultimately begin killing his own kind, because his evil is that deep rooted!!! Yet in the end, God always intervenes.  Even their Christian Bible speaks of it.  Be steadfast and this too shall pass!!!

Soon to be released...

When God blesses you with a gift, it is your duty to share it with the rest of the world.  I'm pleased to announce the release of my second poetry book, "Black Pearls of Wisdom", which contains 130 poems. I'm already working on my 3rd collection.

Large Study Finds 'Pretty Good Indication' Of Genetic Link To Homosexuality  reports -- A new, large study of almost 800 gay brothers is leading researchers to believe they have found a genetic link to homosexuality. Dr. Alan Sanders of the North Shore University Health System Research Institute in Evanston, Illinois, says his work "is not proof but it's a pretty good indication" of genes on the X chromosome influencing sexual orientation, according to the AP.

Dr. Robert Green, a medical geneticist at Harvard Medical School, called the new study "intriguing but not in any way conclusive."

The work was published Monday by the journal Psychological Medicine. The National Institutes of Health paid for the research.

Study participant Dr. Chad Zawitz, a Chicago physician, called the research "a giant step forward" toward answering scientific questions about homosexuality and helping reduce the stigma gays often face.

Being gay "is sort of like having certain eye color or skin color — it's just who you are," Zawitz said. "Most heterosexuals I know didn't choose to be heterosexual. It's puzzling to me why people don't understand."

The study appears to be accepting new applicants.

Food for thought:  I've always felt this way, that God created us in God's image, which is a combination of both feminine and masculine energy. Yet as humans we have free will to do what we want, sexually or otherwise. To go as far as conducting a scientific study to prove a genetic link to homosexuality is stretching the truth a bit too far. To prove his point, mankind always insists upon dissecting everything, including the human soul, which is where our halves (feminine and masculine energy) meet. Hopefully after this study is complete it can be presented to Congress and laws can be passed to finally provide a better quality of life for the gay community. First thing on the agenda should be passing legislation to approve gay marriage across the U.S.

Capturing the Essence of Yin-Yang

A Veteran's Wish

A Veteran’s Wish

As Veterans continue to protect and serve,
We’ve yet to receive all we deserve,
While we raise our hand to salute Old Glory,
You’ve yet to hear all our amazing stories.

As our celebration has come to an end,
We will continue to sacrifice our lives
To protect America’s most sacred land.

Upon her shores
Are her most precious resources;
Her people - her citizens,
Those we serve to protect.

Yet when we return home
It’s with bittersweet regret.
No smiles, no parades,
Only a “latte salute.”
Mr. President, we deserve more
Than what you do. 

As the Commander in Chief
Of the world’s most powerful Nation,
Show more respect and concern for us;
Not by keeping us in action.

Help rehabilitate and heal the
Sick, wounded, poor,
Homeless and weak;
Food, shelter and better policies and protection
From our government, is all that we seek.

We’re not asking to break the bank
Or the Federal Reserve,
Just give us what we rightly deserve.
A proper “hand salute,”
And a special thanks!

Proud to be a Veteran...

I fought for freedom, 
only to realize that I was fighting for my own freedom!

Thought for the day...

          God’s Gonna Tell You Why She Chose You

Close your eyes,
Look up to the sky,
Breathe and feel Mother Earth,
Like you did upon your birth.

When you came into this world
As a little boy or girl,
When you blessed her with your smile
You said, “Thank you Mother,
 I’m gonna stay for a while.”

Now I’m gonna tell you why
Mother God chose me…

"Open your eyes, so you can see,"
Is what the Most High said to me,
That I am a child of the Most High
Who watches over us from the heavenly sky.

Protecting all living beings
On her beloved Mother Earth,
Blessing us with her glory upon our birth.
Heavenly Creator, I give praise to only you
For guiding my spirit in all that I do.

Even during my darkest days,
Yet here on earth is where I wanna stay;
To forever shine my light,
Cause the love you bestow upon the Earth
Is loving and bright.

Mother Earth, your love is the only love
That shines from the heavens above-
That envelopes my soothing heart,
It is forever bonded and nothing can tear us apart.

Thought for the day...

Love to LOVE, not Love to Hate

LOVE, is a four letter word with power force.
It is strong enough to move mountains,
Compassionate enough to rebuild cities, 
Caring enough to feed villages, heal the sick, 
And rid the world of famine.

Yet, LOVE is often expressed opposite of its true meaning.
Take for instance, how can you hate someone enough that
You would LOVE for them to die?

How can you become so greedy and obsessed
With vanity, that you would LOVE for a fat person
To stay fat, knowing that the person is struggling with health issues?

How can you know that people in oppressed countries
Are being forced to live in poverty and chaos
Because of corrupt world leaders,
Yet you LOVE the fact that you’re not living there.

LOVE, a four letter word with power force
That is strong enough to destroy cities,
kill millions, starve children- cause famine,
and destroy our planet.

Love to LOVE, not Love to Hate.

Long Walk to Freedom
© 2014 Syneeda Penland

Deep from the Bayous
I guided you.
Though the swamplands,
Toils and snares, I carried you.

Lighting a torch along the way,
Giving you hope of freedom
During your most dreary
And treacherous days.

There was no giving up
Cause freedom was in the air,
You felt it in your Spirit;
The smell of freedom was everywhere.

Only to arrive to 21st century America
Where your descendants
Might as well still be slaves,
Cause they still letting “Massa,”
Aka Corporate CEOs
And sell-out “Niggas”
Tell them how to behave.

I don’t ask to be pardon
For the use of the “N-word,”
For it has always been used
To describe the “Black Herd.”

Especially those that are stuck
On the plantation;
Housed like cattle
Behind iron bars and concrete walls,
Praying to their God “Allah,”
Waiting for the Roman-American Empire to fall.

Then there’s the Jigaboos,
Sambos and Pickaninnies;
The ones who have sold their souls
To the Illuminati, to be rewarded fame
And mere pennies.

They call it “Bank,” back in the hood,
Their payment for helping to keep
The masses in their place,
Where freedom is never understood.

There are very few
Who have managed not to conform,
The keepers of the esoteric wisdom
That the Great Spirit has passed on.

For it is within the heart and soul
Of mankind to know who you are,
Your moral conscience is always guided
By the heart and soul of the North Star.

For it guides our spirit-mind-body and soul,
Connecting the past with the present;
Like in the days of old.  

It is only when mankind seeks truth
Of wanting to know who we are,
Is when the Great Spirit will guide our path
Back to the heart and soul of the North Star.
