    Revitalizing my thoughts space
    Dying to grasp my black, brown
    Pen scribbled beckoned at how they nibble
    At me true face
    I place myself where I can be myself
    Write myself
    Stay myself
    Forgetting who you are and why you
    Hate my wealth
    My Nubian intellect screaming out to your
    Blank bound for my words hurting for my
    Inks curves
    You heard me before I wrote it
    I felt it before I spoke it
    So why am I broken at what you call my lexis
    Why am I stressing on what you’d vote this
    I devote my spirit to this
    I quote every last note GOD gives me to list
    And yet I stand erect with my hearts fists
    Glaring at them with their despairing remarks
    Without words they speak
    She is Ms. But lacks total scholarly tactics of a true poetess
    GOD bless this stress
    I fail test after test of striving to be a poet with breast
    Nevertheless
    I’m still just this
    A young black woman without a gift?
    I just don’t get it
    If I declare my strength as a silent spoken word artist
    Then why do they continuously slit my wrist with
    No talent
    Be a lawyer or some ****
    Cause you can’t make it in this business
    But I am this business
    An entrepreneur POETESS
    I relinquish trying have what the world calls talent
    I am gallant in my attempt to be me
    So if his hers or your worldly eyes want to
    Label my non ability
    Then do that
