My Hair Affair

Judgment

Heart

If it is about perfection,
than my flaws
will exclude me,
but if it’s about heart
a lioness
deep within
roars.

Hertiage

Heritage
 
She is silent
in the loudness
of strength
ready for battle
in any nameless war
strong for everyone
and anyone she loves
beautifully wounded
All wish they could be her
without having to walk
in her shoes.

Black Actors Pay Tribute to Trayvon Martin: “Little Black Boy Wonder”

Inspired by Black Boy Wonder Poem

Down A Mountain

Their stories
were entrenched in the echo of pain
long lived.
Today I stood before a mirror
that did not belong to me
and the reflection startled me.
I looked in as a woman
but stared out as a Black Man.
Vulnerable
but willing to slice
into scars
long silenced and abandoned
and recount pain
today with two hands
I covered my mouth
holding my breath
and blinking back truth
that burned down my cheeks.

Map to My Heart

Open my mind
and you will stumble
upon my heart.

The Silence Between Us

We have lost words
that fill silences
but our eyes
speak complete
sentences.
