I’m from Philadelphia born and bread. I started writing at the of 6. I wrote during my teenage years. I stopped writing at 18. I started 2 years ago at the age of 55. I haven’t stopped since. Being a writer was my childhood dream. Working on a short story at the moment. I have a book in the works as well.

Crush

You're so sweet and kind.
I wish you were mine.
Youth is on your side.

Strut your stuff like you're enough

God bless the child

God blessed the child who holds their own.
This should be written on my tombstone.
I carry my burden on my back. A back that’s scarred from a surgeons knife. I’m glad God spared my life. I stopped breathing and came back to earth. I thank God...

Shut off the light

Please God wait! I need my mind so I can create.

I’m in a rush to write. Cause my mind isn’t right. I want to write rhymes and fiction.
Yet my mind suffers with this forgetful affliction.

I feel like I’m fighting with my own mind. It’s...

I try to inspire women in my poetry. Self esteem and self worth go hand in hand. If you don’t love yourself no one else will.
