Congratulations, Momma Sonia!

Fam, 2017 is officially one week old today and baby Jesus, I’m already running to keep up. 🙂

This has got to be one of the most uncertain times of my life career wise, but you know how I know it’s gone be alright? My first poem of the new year came to me.

No matter what’s going on in my life, as long as a poem comes through me…

Words I never edit or second guess.

Words that are unfiltered, uncensored, truly me…

I know that I’m alive and well and blessed.

Hope you enjoy it. 🙂

i had a dream about sonia sanchez last night

my nieces

unknowing feline cubs

were crawling all over her

a lioness laughing

a rebel restraining

and i dreamt of her

introduced myself to her



reaching for my nieces

to pull them off of her

but her elder empathy

pulled them closer to her

cuddled their wiggling bodies

enveloped their anxious energy

drew them near

my fear

that they were embarrassing me


because in that moment

i was emancipated

simply by the joy

of watching

my nieces

unknowing felines

crawling all over

sonia sanchez

a lioness laughing.
