Poem: I Am

Many moons ago, I published my first book of poetry called Poetic Outlets. I put my heart and soul in this book. Check out one of my favorite poems.

I Am

I am versatile
When I talk
I don’t have to talk really loud
I can talk softly
However, my voice can be heard for many miles
I don’t have to put on a show
Like the girls on Girls Gone Wild
Like Luther Vandross
I only have to worry about
The Here and Now

I am calm
My personality soothes the raging heart
As calm as the Red Sea
That many centuries ago
Moses parted

So tranquil that
I have people amazed before I even start

I am powerful
The knowledge that I withhold is deadly
Some of my words
Are capable of beheading me

I embrace my heritage
For many are unable to see
The past, the pain
Which lead them to be

I am woman
I am versatile, calm, powerful and sweet
I bring the unity
For which you seek
I am a great listener
For I know you have a story to tell

I am courteous
And I mediate well
I know you know me
For there is one in every family
However this is the only time
You really took a look at me
