Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

this week of 5.11.13 my poem was post on the front page. Under a month of becoming a life time member i had close to 300 like. Soon as this hit the front page i lost maybe a 130 likes on facebook. I never meant to afend anyone. It very selma any  people of color that are famous for poetry speak for a minority. I was just trying to spread the word it was cool to write and show your emotion rather then taking alternative route of methods. I apologize but if i have lost some support to support a minority well. I believe when Maya Angelou  wrote she receive mixes reviews as well. I think this is the case when you are a poet some love it and some hate it. But thank you for the  honesty.ummm? I think it was clinch now the number are showing?

Young Philosopher

I'm struggling, like a bit, of  a tongue, 
I dont feel it's my time to speak, but please, as people sleep, 
will it be all right, 
To write...
Things on my chest, that I like to a dress, 
So i decide to invest, in this hand written
Signture...
Light to the eye, dropp of a dime, 
I, decide it was time, to recollection my mind, 
And ask can i write, that is that, of this
'Young Philosopher'
