Poetry I Am


There came a time

In the month of enriched

Ebony Skin

I was called to right

A poem

Not knowing this journey

That lied within

I took the time to become

Entwined with the words in my mind

I had so much to say

But I just didn’t know how

My words would lay

Encouraging voices was all around me

As I took this journey before me

Wanting my words not to only to affect my audience

But more so a whole country

Poetry became a part of me

Because my mother instilled the many words within me

Words of rhythm and rhyme

Encased in history

That is now bubbling within me

Giving me the ability to say

Be blessed

Have success
