I have always used poetry to express myself, and this time is no different. I believe that poetry is a fantastic way to send and receive messages, create images, and, importantly, a way to challenge one's assumptions. I have compiled a set of poems that are about the current social-political events. My hope is that these works, whether individually or collectively, will provoke and evoke an awakening of consciousness at best or, at a minimum, provide the basis for a lucid thorough examination of the social-political decisions that we all make together as a country and a society. If nothing else, I hope these poems will inspire you to rethink how you see our world.
