    How to tell the story ?
    Lets go back in time I was just eleven with lots of things on my mind.
    It was the day my Big Momma died...first I didn't believe and then I just cried. Then something unexplainable came to me.
    What would I say to Big Momma if she could hear me then...
    That is when my journey started ...with one piece of paper
    and a Bic ink pen....
    I didn't know meters or pentameters I just knew I had to write.
    I wrote the words that were in my heart and when I finish I gave a start!:eek: How ? Where ? Did these magical musings come from. And like my Brother Rich I ran for Momma to see.
    You see like me with the pen she could always fly free.
    Momma read it quietly and then she looked at me, what started
    was a twinkle then a tear slipped from her eye.
    She put her arms around me and said I was here comfort that day. I didn't know what to say! How could I so young affect her
    this way. And when she finished weeping she told me...
    My child you have a gift, and other spirits you must lift!
    So at Big Momma's Funeral I rose and took the platform
    and they lowered the mike ....I began to speak my written
    word and people stopped and stared , I wasn't nervous and
    neither was I scared...My voice didn't shake and I was feeling
    somewhat outside myself!
    When I have completed my sharing, and stared back at the people staring....I heard a thunder rise...I looked to see if
    a storm had risen as I walked alone back to me seat!
    But the thunder that I heard was people clapping their hands
    for me... The preacher took the pulpit and he paused and wiped
    his eye! He smiled and told me , I hope someone says something
    half as beautiful when it's my turn to die.
    And the beauty that soared through my soul that day continue to leak out on the page.
    I never felt deep pain or anquish that day and I didn't feel real sad. In fact I know my Big Momma was looking down on me and that made me very glad.
    I can still hear her whisper to me in that southern drawl she had...
    CHILE YOU SOMETHING ELSE!
    And now I knew just what.......
    Yeah now I know it
    I am a Poet!

    Thank you for reading always!

    Thanks once again , I think the rest did me good, it's like I have a new kind of energy around me, and you can expect me to "Give you the best that I Got"...and if I can do it three times aloud without crying I will do it in Open Mic soon!
    smooches to my sista's and hugs to my brotha's!

    Blessings On Ya House!:D
