Creativity to Empower


The first slam 

took my breath away

showed me how the flow

of your words

makes you heard

takes the weight and makes it


loosens the constriction from

the battle of depression and

the divorce could be worked through

grief was not shameful

beauty was not the illusion

shown to me by society's 

weak attempt at

setting standards. 

Their words

gave me goosebumps

my words

set free the passion

that had lingered in the depths of my


and I wrote and I wrote

because these words tell 

the story of the universal struggle

to be alive 

these words are the link between courage

and self esteem 

these words make the difference between

passion that is lost

or ignited.
