Poetry Memoirs

By: Ms. BroadwayTherapy

I am an archivist at heart, which examples why I am able to share with you my poetry memoirs that goes back to my original work as a teenager up til now.  Feel free to download or comment on the poems that resonates with you!

2011, Miss B.O.S.S.

Inspired by one of my best friends, the founder of Miss B.O.S.S.

2003, I AM A “Rose”

This poem received honorable mention by Clark Atlanta University, for their youth poetry contest.

1999, The Mic

I was 14 years old, and this is where my love for poetry evolved!  I wrote this poem in my literature class, which was later received recognition by 9th grade teacher, and placed on display in the school’s library. This was a time in my life when I made a significant turning point, I became a “Super Christian.”  Zealous about discovering the mysteries of God and sharing what I’ve learned with my peers. Anyone who knew me back then at CHS (Decatur, GA), knew that I was Jesus Freak, by choice, lol.  In retrospect, I was very “green” in some of my outlooks on life, but I cannot deny that my naivety did not change my love for people.  I was authentic in my beliefs. This poem reflects my curiosity about human behavior and why people do what they do.    As an adult, I can say who I was then has shaped me into the woman I am today, an activist for social justice and empowering youth and young adults to live their best lives.
