Olutunde Olufemi is bringing you raw emotion in his poem, If Anyone Had a Heart. This work illustrates how unreciprocated love is a hard pill to swallow. Yet, as we know, it is one of many medicines of life. When taken correctly, it will make us stronger. Thank you Olutunde for sharing your words.
We all bear burdens. I do believe that is is part of the human condition. However, it is the way we carry these burdens that affects us the most. Believe in yourself to the point of ascension. Know that no burden can weigh you down unless you allow it. Know that you can cross any troublesome sea. I have faith in you.
Humble is the one who shows respect. And Melica Niccole is just that. Her poem, Respect, is an easy-flowing lesson in poetry history. She highlights many loved writers. Our mothers of the movements, Nikki Giovanni and Maya Angelou, as well as, cherished literature greats such as Edgar Allan Poe. This poem is all about recognizing the people who paved the way before us. May we never forget them as we pave our own. Thank you Melica for honoring them.
What is the nature of love? Does it grow, wilt away, fall from trees, and blow away like leaves? Is it really meant to be? Tish Lauren perfectly portrays the falling out of love experience in her poem, Such is Life. In this life, we have many love experiences, but what we must remember is to learn from each and every one of them ....until we find the love that infinitely blooms. Thank you Tish for your soft words.
They say patience is a virtue. I'd have to agree. David's poem, SEVEN DAYS, is a daily log of the In's and Out's of love and dating. His words are a reminder that love is surely more than a hashtag. Thank you David for this work of honesty.
Life is all about Balance. We often forget that we must experience the bad with the good. Those experiences mold us and make us stronger. A.Z.'s poem is a story of not allowing unsavory circumstances to define your reality. Live a life led by your dreams or succumb to your nightmares? The choice is yours. Thank you A.Z. I happily share your gift.
Don't get stuck. Sometimes we get stuck in our own fog. Nyisha's poem is a prayer for the removal of fear, worry, and doubt. We must never forget that those emotions will hold us back. There is so much sky beyond the fog. Take off and fly free. Thank you Nyisha for sharing your words.
