I AM Mother Earth

I am Mother Earth  Skin smoothly Resembling the dirt  Salt of the land  Slick as sand  Soil thrown   Strength is born  From the dust I emerge  Admire these features  Imperfect symmetry  The laziness in my left eye  Reminds me to embrace my creativity  Slanted eyes that see truth  Small ears  Yet still I hear Spirit  […]

Damn Drugs

I wrote this poem almost 2 years ago from a place of anger. I was angry seeing how drugs have and continue to destroy our communities. I was even angrier with the people in my life that use and how their actions effected me and those around them. This poem chilled in my notebook. Out […]
