Hello! allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Raymond Quattlebaum.
My nationality is African American.
I am the third oldest son in a family of 5.
I am 5ft11.
My sign is Aries.
I live in the upper Westside in N.Y.C. Manhattan.
I know what you are thinking? Quattlebaum.
Yes! a unique name in structure,
as well as appearance, quite unique.
But I always had a love for Poetry.
I love to workout. I love Music.
I even love party Clubbing.
But my passion is Poetry.
It all started in Public school, as a young kid
growing up in P.S.84.
I remember writing a poem for my 3rd grade teacher
Mrs. Albert. She liked it so much,
she put it in the school’s newspaper.
Which was quite interesting and inspiring to me.
Because it was my first time writing poetry,
it was amazing. It made me feel good about myself,
and pushed me to write poetry even more as time
went on. Since then, as I became older.
I have read several other poems, by other poets,
in my teenage years, that moved me.
But it was the singing group called Earth Wind & Fire.
The Elements Of Life, who inspired me to write poetry
ever so more, absolutely, lovely.
The way they would word their lyrics in their music.
Is something you would have to listen to yourself.
Because it’s Spiritually Divine.
So today, I write as much Beautiful poetry as I can,
and put it in a book. Because love makes the world
go around. The Color Of Love Is Life.
This is the essence of Who We Are!
Share Energy. Unconditional Love!!!
Dancing in the spiral of Life!
