I cry when I read poetry emanating love And hear raps voicing confidence It reminds me of the internal whispers imprisoned within me Once soft, poetic, confident Now screaming like a newborn child To be brought into the world To be free To give this girl I call me the confidence and love she is…

Judgment Creates Boundaries

I never talked to the “weird kids”.  I always listened to what they had to say though. I was always intrigued. they had so many interests.
