Biography of James Royster
I feel that poetry/spoken word is one of the most beautiful forms of communication. I am a man with too many thoughts and not enough time to express them all.
James Royster Poems
Oh Motherland why do you bleed? It must be painful to watch a war between your own seed.
How can I smile when 2/3 of me have been oppressed? Yet I am told to just hold my head up and do my best.
You carry the burdens that have been placed on you. Your eyes are blinded thinking what you see is true. Your direction is controlled by the harness in your mouth.
The Most Beautiful Thing
I've seen a flower whose petals refuse to fall. I've seen a woman who looks like a beautiful queen doll. I've seen the majestic eagle soar across the sky.
My Blossoming Heart
You complete me, you make me whole, If I were a puzzle you would be a piece of my soul. When you’re sad I cry.
I tried to write about you, but the words weren't special enough. I tried to sing about you, but the notes
In The End
For me finding love is really tough, but when I first laid eyes on you I knew you were a diamond in the rough
Words Of An Opressed Soul
You came here in search of a dream. I came here with no hope, or so it would seem. You came here looking for money.
Me without you is like a heart with no beat. I am like the sun with no heat. I am like blood with no vein.
Why do I sit here feeling so depressed? Is it because I’ve failed even when I’ve given my best?
I have no reason to smile, no reason to cry. No reason to live, no reason to die. I have no reason to laugh, no reason to pout
I Hate You To me you are a disgrace. I despise everything about you, even that cynical look on your face.
You were the perfect piece, but together we don't fit. If life were a game of tag you would be 'It'. You were my morning light, summer sun.
Now is the time for change! You think you have respect because you push a range? Like little children we have all been pacified.
Empty, lonely, cold, and dark,
This is what it's like on the inside of my heart.
There have been times when a light once shone,
but that was the past, now the light is gone
I long to feel the warmth one more time.
I wish to find someone who will once again
make my heart shine.
