Dear Black Sister (excerpt)

Dark as molasses and sweet as peppermint canes,

Go ahead check that window, stare at that mirror.

Drink all of yourself in, then count all of the ways 

white clouds whose envy couldn’t be any clearer

try to imitate those burdensome beauty features.

"Poetry is at the center of me. So I freak letters and words to birth imagery in hopes that its conception delivers more meaning to my reality. More simply, I write and this is my marvelous testimony." Sincerely, Tyra
