    A mind that conceived and idea
    became an impregnated soul
    that took less than
    nine months
    to reach full
    potential and maturity

    Before the beginning of an
    unexplored existence

    Before - Before

    Back to a time where
    literary lineages
    marked a child
    on it's passage
    living in a womb
    full of knowledge
    and words that
    were traversed
    through painful yet
    joyous parturition

    I was birthed into a delivery
    room that
    is fully furnished with
    many images of
    life's happy and sad
    times ... hoping for
    little or no birth
    defects
    ... yet I develop and
    grow from these
    experiences -- naturally

    With this gift from God
    I am blessed...
    priveledged to share
    creativity sustained
    in solitude

    I don't use
    "poem control pills" to limit
    the number of
    scribes I produce or
    ... in my mental cavity
    there is no
    such thing as
    planned parenthood

    The subject matter
    I may choose to
    script about is "pro - choice"
    and a birth right
    which resulted from
    a conceptualized
    gestation period
    that develops in
    varying amounts of
    time

    My poems are certificates
    of birth that record
    the realness of my
    being ... and
    with each prose I
    write
    I am BORN again

    I only had time to read one poem this morning and i am real glad that it was this one.

    Understanding, impathyzing and thanking you for speaking the words for me
    explaining the process
    for me

    Poetry is
    the birth of thought and verse

    birth of a superstar

    this piece was very smooth yet deep with so much strength
    your strength came thru on this one

    N2 i been reading your work for a while
    and i'm impressed

    and anybody who know me knows i call it how it see it if it makes you feel good fine
    if it doesn't then what can you do

    i'm real

    and you know what i've been noticing?
    the more real a person is the more we click

    phony people try to avoid me because i can see thru the game
