From the age of fifteen, my motto was, “Wherever you see injustice, stop it.” Growing up, I came to realize that I can’t.
I have used my writing to defend my rights and the rights of others. When I was helpless and powerless, I still continued to write to empower myself and have some sense of control over my life. My writing is my voice, and these poems speak what I cannot say to anyone else but God.
My poetry is my recovery from the past and how I freed myself from it. I hope it inspires you to do the same.
Stand up and tell the truth no matter what it costs because the price is always worth it.
