"Single Human Experience" - Poet Bares Soul in Poems That 'Shine Your Light Upon Others'
By: Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Co, LLC
"Thoughts flow through my head and
I often think about the gifts that
I AM given of words as a P O E T"
In her preface, she writes:
"I've never felt the need to apologize for who I am or for the color of my skin. Nor for the words I speak or write. I've never felt the need to belong to a group of others who know not who they are. I've never felt that I should be categorized, labeled, or told to fit into a box. I've never had the desire to explain my existence, nor to define it or hold onto what I have been told about my past. For I am here, right now at this time and in this space, standing within the center of my being in this thing called life. I'm unapologetically standing within all of my Black womanness within the land of Queendom! As I walk within the light every day, I see where I have been and where I am going. For the journey of self is indeed a journey of one: One Mind, One Body, One Soul, and One Spirit. Many will not understand. And, to be quite frank, I don't expect everyone to. For I am telling my story, as I am a story that has never been told. Enjoy the experience."
The book delves into the author's spiritual journey of life. "I am blessed to have a gift of writing as I Co-Create with GOD," she says. "I look to the pen within my hand to allow me to become an instrument in the form of inspiration and spiritual expression of life. When you write from within it challenges you to just be you as raw and organic as you can be."
"I AM a Messenger
I AM a Story
