2018 is only minutes away, an end of a tumultuous year. This is the beginning.
I know it’s been a while and I procrastinated but part of it was the loss of a muse. I wasn’t productive enough, other than try to be a perfectionist, to muster writing prose or poetry. It all came down to what my passion is. It’s there all that time, it just needed a firecracker to light it up again. This time, I was able to get this off the ground.
It is a poem of 7 women whom I wanted to give a voice to. Their stories are not unique but the point is imbue their struggles and the injustices they went through in a lyrical, albeit serious, sense. It is not for everyone.
I plan to start sending these and a few more poems and short stories out there.
Looking forward to it!
