    What a glorious feeling to know
    Your time is done
    You are leaving
    Leaving old things
    To embrace the new
    Leaving hard times
    For hopefully better times
    Leaving old friends
    Hopefully to embrace new friends
    Leaving behind so much knowledge
    Hopefully to embrace new knowledge
    This is the season of leaving
    Closing old doors
    And hopefully
    Opening new ones
    Shaking old hands goodbye
    And hopefully greeting new ones
    Saying goodbye to the past
    And hopefully finding a brighter future
    Yes, leaving
    Is a part of life
    Look at how beautiful
    And graceful the leaves change
    From healthy green
    To fading yellow
    To dying brown
    But every display is necessary
    For the tree to grow new fruit
    Yes leaving
    A part of life

    Leaving

    For little Mo

    This poem is dedicated to my Rich little daughter Monique, who has been in a college bound program and will finish with a 5,000 scholarship to put towards college and then on to Penn State in the fall. But somewhere in all her accomplishments she forgot to say goodbye to the spirit of mommie who just realize she will not be returning with the same mind of my baby.

    Yall momma's know what I saying.

    Anyway hope you like it

    Little Mo

    As I spoke before, little Mo is leaving the world she knows that this is only half the leave. She is leaving the big city of Baltimore to embrace a town in Pittsburgh that wants to embrace a higher level of diversity. I want her to improve but never to forget her roots as creator. Talk to me about this one.

    Back at ya.
