    This was written when I first began writing poetry. It's a little rusty but I hope it gets its point across.

    MY LOVE FOR WRITING BEGAN MANY YEARS AGO
    NOT THINKING I WILL BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN THIS CONSTANT FLOW.
    AS MY WORDS ARE DISPLAYED UPON THE SCREEN,
    GROWING UP EVERYONE EXPECTED ME TO BE A MATH QUEEN.
    FOR MY VERSES ARE FILLED WITH LOVE AND INSPIRATION
    BECAUSE GROWING UP, THEY WERE NOT A PART OF MY FOUNDATION.
    SO I WISH TO GIVE THE STRENGTH TO OTHERS
    WHO BELIEVES NO ONE ELSE HAS ANY BOTHERS.
    SOME OF MY POETRY MAY CAUSE SHOCK AND ALARM
    BUT THAT IS HOW I REPRESENT MY CITY -- HARLEM.
    BEST BELIEVE WHEN I RISE EACH MORNING, I LIFT MY HEAD
    TO THE MAN WHO HAS PROVIDED ME WITH THE WORDS YOU HAVE READ.
    SEE HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS MY HIDDEN DESIRES
    AND IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DIM MY WRITING FIRES.
    I TAKE HIS GRACE AND BLESSINGS AS THE KEY
    TO TRANSFORM THE LOVE THAT RESIDES IN ME.
    FOR HE HAS ALLOWED MY INTROVERTNESS
    TO ENTER A WORLD FULL OF GRACIOUSNESS.
    NOW, WHATEVER GIFT YOU DO POSSESS,
    DON'T WASTE ANOTHER MINUTE NOT SHARING YOUR BEST.
    THAT GIFT INISDE IS FOR YOU TO SHARE
    AND FOR YOU TO SHOW THE LORD YOU ARE AWARE
    AS YOU LIVE YOUR DREAMS TO ITS FULL POTENTIAL
    AND REMEMBER THAT INNER VOICE IS CONSEQUENTIAL.
