“Look at me, I am fly!”

“Can’t you see, there’s no mistake in me?”

“I am the future to come, to be!”

When I smile and say hi,

I’ve begun to make a new history:

There’s no make believe in me,

Inside my frame—beautiful, that’s me!

My heart pump with rich blood,

My hair black—coil; skin smooth,

like a mullein plant:

my gene great, from the offspring

of a higher intelligence:

“I am multi-mega—wealthy!’

My presence is love:

“Regrets, oh no, not me!”

“Who am I?” “Not a machine!”

“I am the significant, important;

“Brilliant human—that’s me!”

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
