Jaundiced View

Self-Discovery Propels You to Your Destiny I started writing poetry when I was a junior at college attending Tulane University. Jaundiced View is my first and most heartfelt  book of poetry. I call the poems in this book “late night poetry” because many of them were written late at night while I was sitting in my study in front of my laptop computer pouring my heart out whil...

 Stigmatized! Through everyone’s eyes, Even mine. Torn! I’m black and I’m shamed, By you, by me, by everyone you see. Unless I survive, Higher than life, I’m nothing, Less than nothing. You can’t understand how I feel. I love you, I don’t love you. Hurt I would be if I even conceived, The idea! What’s the idea between us? A little ...
