I Bit The Apple Too…(Excerpt)
I bit the apple too Eve Though this time, The serpent, Sat in my palms, Follows me everywhere That is anywhere, On this green earth, Makes me forever take for granted, My gifts that was handed since birth, Now this plants roots tied, To a device, I like, I like to write, I like to…
We Tend To Forget.
Mama never thought she was naming a hashtag, Naming a victim, Naming another cause for the march , She never thought she was naming a headline, Naming a subject of a CNN discussion, Mama never thought she was naming another name to the list, Mama took her time to create, A name to be place…
