    Come with me on a journey,
    Whispers of golden truth,
    Movements of solidarity,
    Souls with simplicity, is where we will be
    Reach out your hand to install a piece of paper in her hand
    Tell her to use more than a pen to write her emotions,
    But use her inner Langston Hughes to speak of the unknown,
    Or her inner Malcom X to make the truth reality,
    And make Martin Luther King speak through the minds shut from so much confusion
    If you ever feel like releasing your pen from your hand,
    Let your inner Rosa Parks encourage you to keep moving.
    With all your emotions mixed with all of your strength,
    Write like your soul was up for sale
    And all that you can do to get it back is to write a few metaphors or similes
    To convince the pessimistic minds that you are worth listening to
    You are worth living, and they will hear you speak
    If not vocally, it will be poetically

    Tell them to come with you on a journey
    Whispers of golden truth,
    Movements of solidarity,
    Souls with simplicity
    Is where we will be
    If you open your minds…then my words have no problem going inside

    Let them know that you are here and will stay here regardless of what they may say…
    You are alive and your existence it so be heard not seen
    Let them know that there is more than a skin color to define you
    Speak about your tragedies and triumphs
    Speak about what their minds refuse to accept…you know
    An intellectual, conversation stimulator, personal heart breaker, deep soul searchin’,
    Hard working, beautiful face with the elegance only I would know about, optimistic,
    Poetically gifted, always hated, never respected, looked over but never forgotten,
    Ambitious, loving, caring, honest human self
    You are somebody!!!…you are a person of many talents
    You have yet to find something you are not good at.
    The blind sees your presence and your words are heard through closed ears
    Your pen has so much rhythm in one stroke that it leaves many hungering for more

    You are a poet
    A writer
    You have the power to enhance the inner poet in so many souls
    There’s no need to speak when you have the gift of poetry
    Speaking is just what you want to do, but writing is all you have to do
    To be heard, to turn heads and open hearts and minds

    So take a stand for yours
    Represent for yours
    Tell them YOU ARE SOMEBODY
    I AM somebody
    I am, I am…HUMAN

    No favorite lines in a gem like this, but this made my soul say, YES!!!

    "Write like your soul was up for sale
    And all that you can do to get it back is to write a few metaphors or similes
    To convince the pessimistic minds that you are worth listening to
    You are worth living, and they will hear you speak
    If not vocally, it will be poetically"

    This is the type of vibe that makes anyone who has a way with a pen beam with pride. You molded this piece like a sculptor. Beyond awesome, poet.
