I’ve been writing all my life it seems. When I was a child, I would stay up at night, writing and drawing while everyone was asleep. Some things never change as I’m still up late, writing….
Writing is a tool of expression.I find it to be quite revealing and also during the process of penning your thoughts to paper, quite therapeutic. Ok, that is the therapist in me talking.
While at Morgan State University, I wrote several poems and decided to compile them into a book, I titled, “Me, My Soul & I”. Each week as I work on revising and updating some of the poems, I will post a poem from my book until I’m finished and ready to publish.
I would like to invite you with me on this journey of self-publishing my book. Just keep in mind, I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my shit….lol. ( I love that line from Erykah Badu‘s Tyrone Live video).
I wrote a poem want to hear it here it go (In Living Color, lol):
Bed of the Womb
As I bath it is as if I am in the bed of the womb
When I move my body the water ripples
As I go deeper I submerge my nipples
The flicker of the candle reflects off my glistening thigh
As I rinse all my cares and wring them dry
Vapors of steam evaporates in thin air
All my worries and burdens start to disappear
In the bed of the womb I experience a rebirth each time
It’s where my soul meets my heart then my body, then my mind.
It’s where I am one with the one that creates us all as one.
Cleansed from the inside out, a new start I have begun.
I’m light as a kite, My soul takes flight
In this sanctuary where my body and spirit is naked and free
I find me and I set me Free.
