Pharaoh’s’s Plan

Just because you hate me
You think I should ball up and cry
Buried Me Alive
Did you think I’d just crumble up and die

Lock me up in a cage
For over half of my life span
You thought I’d lose my sanity
Compromise my sexuality with another man

Surround me in barb wire and walls
So you thought I could not see
The GIANT within
Lose my compass to be free

Clip my wings
As if I’m just a silly jail bird
But if you know Why The Caged Bird Sings
Then for sure this Lion’s roar will be heard

Gave me life twice as a child
Surmised I’d never grow to become a man
But Pharaoh’s’s plots
Are just God’s plan…….

My name is Halim Flowers and I am an author, poet, blogger(, and at-risk youth advocate. I have been incarcerated for 18 years, since I was 16 years of age for aiding and abetting a felony murder in a case where I was not the shooter and the person charged as the gunman had his case dismissed and was never tried for this offense. I know it sounds crazy but it is my destiny for now and I embrace. My passion in life is learning and helping to enlighten and inspire others, especially helping to develop the character and lives of young men. I was featured in an Emmy award winning documentary about my experiences as a child at the adult D.C. Jail titled "Thug Life In DC"(See Thug Life In DC at YouTube) and I have authored nine books in the genres of self-help, prisoner reform, juvenile justice, memoir, and poetry(See Halim Flowers at I very contrite for my past criminal offenses and seriously committed to helping our youth to understand "Victim's Impact" and breaking the "school-to-prison pipeline".
