Downtrodden

Shhhhhhhhh……….

he might hear us

he might condemn

do not let him near.

Be careful.

His thoughts are not ours

his anger

his whiteness

is not the world’s truth.

Stand tall

speak your mind

do not allow him to rape

the cosmos that he feels he owns.

Do not allow him to destroy.

Rebel

stand up

do not let him crown himself king.

Rebel

speak loud

or forever shall we kneel

before the false prophet.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
