From the Poet:
“I wrote these pieces of art because there is power behind everyone’s story. Maybe you’re aware or haven’t noticed, but you are, in fact, a very powerful and important individual. Share your story. Don’t be ashamed. Through art or through any other form of expression, your story will inspire others.”


As​ ​you​ ​read​ ​my​ ​verses, my​ ​words, ​my​ ​rhymes,
you ​begin​ ​to​ ​see​ ​my​ ​purpose—​
the​ ​reason ​​I​ ​write.

For​ ​we​ ​are​ ​our​ ​history, ​our​ ​thoughts, ​our​ ​cries,
we ​ought​ ​to​ ​share​ ​knowledge
like​ air​​ ​fills​ ​the​ ​skies.

Sharing​ ​your​ ​story​ ​will​ ​only​ ​invite​ truth​ ​into​ ​our​ ​lives.
and ​create​ ​resistance​ ​to​ ​the​ ​faulty, ​untruthful​​ ​stories​ about​ ​our​ ​kind,
recreating history​ ​one​ ​word​​ ​at​ ​a​ ​time
by​ ​those​ ​who​ ​know​ ​what​ ​it​ ​was​ ​actually​ ​like–

For​ ​our​ ​stories, ​real​ ​history
will ​be​ ​taught​ ​and​ ​finally,​ recognized​.
