Poetry captures emotions of a time lived. Whether it be through observation, shared experience, heartache or the deepest love— poetry can move you to feel in ways that won’t allow you escape from your soul’s truth. Paper and pen have always been my safe haven. I have piles of notebooks and journals. Tools used to let my heart speak, no matter what’s going on outside. I write a lot about growth, change, love in all of its forms and women’s empowerment. I write the stories that many have lived. I seek to learn. I explore womanhood. I hold space for you. I try to give voice to those who feel voiceless and power to those who feel powerless. I have evolved over the years and understand the responsibility that comes with this form of expression. The poems that I’m sharing reflect awakening. And in this glorious Spring, what’s more beautiful than seeing a sweet bud as it begins to bloom fully? April is National Poetry Month. Today, I celebrate that.
