Fifth grade, language arts class.
No one staring at me for the first
Time all day. No mannish boys
Tugging at my skirt, no girls
Laughing at how older I look.

Paper and pen on my desk should,
Be doing my essay but to hell with
That. Tears trickle down my face,
Why hadn’t I stopped him this time?
Why did I let him hit mama.

Dayum teacher keep glancing at me
As if I don’t belong. Words start
Overflowin in my head until I can’t take
It no more. I bit my lip hard until a trickle
Of blood seeped from my lip.

I had only heard of poetry once
Before. Essay I had to do on
Maya Angelou. Didn’t know much
About it, but then again I never
Knew much about anything.

All of a sudden I was writing
Pen hitting paper hard, cries
Trying to escape from my throat.
Not letting them dayum teachers
Know what was up, they already
Were too deep into my business.

Emotions flowin on paper,
Oooooohhhhhhhhweeeeeeeeee.
It felt so nice, so free.
No one was staring at me now
Just me and my paper. Never
Knew words could be expressed
So freely at any given time.

My work of art. My ****. No one
Could touch me in my world. As soon
As I finished I cried. Cried big,
Wet, headache tears. Students looked
At me but I was in my world.

I arose from my desk and walked toward
The shelf where they kept the dictionaries.
Picked up the Webster and walked straight
Out of that room. Sat in the hall, no one ever
Bothered me so I didn’t have to worry about
Getting in trouble.

I looked up “defienetly” and I proceeded to
Write my next poem…

That was how it went down; all my anger flowed onto those scrap pieces of paper. If felt so good, so right. I have been writing poetry every since. Hoped ya’ll liked it, Bishop thanks for the challenge.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
