I am a poem.
I am thunder, lightening, rain and sun.
I am wild kisses and peekaboo dresses
Laughter and untamed tresses.
I am a poem of a woman.
With contradictions and contracted similes,
metaphors and inappropriate punctuation...and story
D*mn, do I have a story.
I am a generation of defaulted
Oh h*ll nahs! When there should have been a few more h*ll yeses!
I am a mother to a baby
who was a baby
having a baby
when she had her baby
I am a negro spiritual
wrapped in an
I am a distant moon
trapped in a sunny day
I am a thrill ride
Of deep stomach clenching dips
and incredible death defying highs
I am the tart of lemon
And the soothing of lime
I am a poem of a woman... ©2018
