Own Drummer

[a "I'm not who you want me to be" poem]

paint images in shades of sunflower & songbird/having simile metaphorically create ink filled menagerie/pour every lyric a glass of happily-ever-after/toast to the reunion of word & soul play/"I want to make you happy"/but with the way I write, don't think its possible/close the book, I won't be offended.


  1. Back in September, when I first heard you speak, you had my attention in that small room ,and you have had it every since. Your work makes me think ,smile , laugh . I'm truly glad to know you and very excited for what's to come. Fan for life.

  2. @Yvette: Thanks for the support! I greatly appreciate it!
