Sometimes It Snows In April

Sometimes its cold
When its supposed to be warm
Broken hearts don’t seem whole
In the eye of the storm

Single mothers smile
To hide tears from their child
Though their pillows
Are drenched in pain
Bedroom walls are weeping willows
Giving shade to lost love’s shame

Sometimes it snows in April
Most times we hear, but don’t listen to those we love
Maybe we don’t have an ear for sorrow
Or we’re too black-and-white to see gray clouds above

Could it be that we’ve grown numb
Immune to the blizzard in the middle of our springs
Rainbows and the silver lining has lost its rule of thumb
To touch our souls to create illustrious things…….

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".
