Recently, I enjoyed your poetic expressions. I reflected on the challenges you faced in your youth. Stolen from your original home, and then sold in America as a slave. Out of compassion taught to read, speak and write, borne forth poetry. Your newfound confidence produced in you the ability to compose firmly. That opened a unique door that America's Founding Fathers could not ignore. Creative thinking that blazed an interesting trail involving rhythmic insight. Phillis, your craft also put an exclamation mark on, "All men are created equal!" Despite the historical issues, we still face, your expressions shows a productive mind. Again, I want to acknowledge your creative flow and thank you for opening the door.
