I am a black American man who has been through many adventures in life. Some exciting and most boring but all have been educational.
My present odyssey has been one that has invigorated a fainting spirit. And has allowed me to venture into unchartered waters with nothing but my strong faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and it is a journey fueled with God's glorious ... more »

Octavius Johnson Poems
Her eyes brighten my soul. They give me direction in each new day. The Hope that was dwindling away Is restored when I look in Her eyes.
He Watches Me
As I am walking, I feel his eyes Spying and admiring. He speaks to me about my beauty, Admiring and Complimenting.
As you get older, you Reminience on what, when, who Those paths not taken, those Things left undone or forgotten foes
Stop Looking At The Storm, Set Your Focu...
You have problems and troubles. Stop complaining about the rain! People talk bad and lie about me. Stop crying over the pain!
My Thoughts Are Not High Enough
Gotta get going I'm gonna be late, What's my agenda today? I'm thinking I gotta pay this and I gotta go there.
Submission to the Remission
My debt has been cancelled. My debt has been suspended. With a Humble sacrifice, with True Love
It's Gonna Rain!
It's rainin'! It's stormin'! What am I gonna do? How am I gonna make it through?
I am imprisoned Imprisoned and chained down by lies and deviousness Jailed by a coward's sense to please others Locked down in my drunken escape from reality
One Day At A Time=Everlasting Life
A journey starts with one step A building gets built brick by brick A lifetime begins with one day

Her eyes brighten my soul.
They give me direction in each new day.
The Hope that was dwindling away
Is restored when I look in Her eyes.
Her eyes show me how Love flows.
They fill me with passion and drive.
When I get weary and ready to faint
My strength is renewed when I look in Her eyes.
Her eyes have a calming truth.
That soothes an angry spirit or broken heart.
When my head is drunk with alcohol, anger or malice,
I am soothed into a sober mind when I look into Her eyes.
Her eyes hold the Truth, the Way and the Life.
That will take you ...
