Pay Attention!

Sit back.


Please pay attention.

I’ve got me a story to tell

About a young girl who grew up in hell Chicago’s the place

The time I can’t say

She was traumatized by all the lies

Fears she kept inside

The pain she tried to hide

For nobody knew

They couldn’t sense her truth

She had nobody to turn to

Sit back.


Please pay attention.

This young girl

She fell for love

She fell for a Sagittarius

The only man she thought that she could trust

Until she realized it was only lust

An open wound that just won’t heal

She wanted to chase the feeling

But knew it wasn’t real

When will she escape her hell?

Undoubtedly, we all have a story to tell about some experience in our lives that we feel could benefit another in some way, shape, form and/or fashion. It’s just so unfortunate we often have to make use of fiction to convey our very realities.

Are you familiar with that saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words”? What if I told you I have thousand poems that can paint one picture? Would you believe me?

Growing up I was told, “Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.” So how can a picture be worth a thousand words if only half the story is there?

Picture this, if you will. Much like families keep photo albums of those precious moments in their lives I too did the same, but I kept a poetry book to depict my experiences.
