My name is Iverson named after Allen Iverson. I'm new to poetry but each thing I write comes from the soul. Let me know how it feels to read my poetry. I'm from Oakland, California but I moved to Oregon with my grandparents when I was 13. These two drastic life changes showed me completely different perspectives on life and for that, I can never be thankful enough.

This life we live is beautiful
We have our own skin, our very own complexion
We have our own...

Im Iverson

I’m Iverson, but people perceive me visually
For why is how each ego is portrayed differently.
How each flaw is tamed.
through diction people can create there own fiction.
Of who I am.
Soon to be hooked, addiction
Why do minds have such a thin...

Her Heart

She has green eyes mixed with brown, and sometimes lies hoping that the mean guys will maybe take their time.
She’s been through this game too many times but hasn’t learned to read through the lies.
So she lays by the tree of love, sighs as it...

I love this " The first was get out of bed
See when you have a roommate like depression
The clothes are always left on the floor
The dishes are never clean
And is that smell me!"
