My Time, My Year

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...

my-time-my-year

It was only once in all my years during a snowstorm, when I heard the serene voice in my ears say the words; “SO THAT YOU WOULD KNOW THAT I AM GOD”…

From that day, I knew I was destined to be used by GOD …

Destined to represent the ancestors, known and unknown…

The trials were miles of disappointments, miles of hurt and me hurting others along the way…

The trials were painful, at times shameful, and I contributed and participated in practices that were more destructive then productive…

Still through all the cocaine lines, the weed fest I remained blessed…

I wrote through it all, never letting my pen stop because of personal self-destruction and low production…

I knew deep on my inside that I was one of the vessels, one of the choices, chosen to spread some words, chosen to be seen and heard…

My words guided by ancestral spirits, guided by unseen powers…

My words tell stories, my words told truth…

All my steps were ordered steps, all my mishaps were by designed to enhance my mind…

Every wrong turn only made me learn and got my attention while I was in Spiritual detention…

My Time, My Year…

I expect , I anticipate , I wait on a financial blessing, a surge of opportunities to excel and give the devil and his followers some Poetic Hell…

I expect more focus coming out of me, more moments to elevate, motivate and stimulate the mind of others…

I expect to be like Maya and Still Rise…

My Time, My Year…

Open your ears when the Word Bird is near because I’m going to bring It, not sing It…
