by any means – a poem
I was a college student in 1992
Kent State historical in its own right for the shooting of four protestors exercising their first amendment
Malcolm X was also a man exercising his right to be black in America
1992, a movie premiere.
Three glorious hours about this leader who gave an alternative voice to a people, some of whom saw no end of the struggle in sight.
Then the Oscars roll around.
Spike Lee was played
Thank you for reading

It’s Sunday. Just felt like sharing this today. Alot of people don’t realize how much of the Bible is written in a poetic style. This scripture is one of my favorites. #LoveIsPatient #BibleAsPoetry #nationalpoetrymonth #marchthirtyonepoetry

I wrote this poem back in 2015. Today, I honor the memory of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and the 50th Anniversary of his death, April 4, 1968. May we never stop fighting for equality and justice, peacefully. #MLK #50thAnniversary #marchthirtyonepoetry
