Writing poetry is nothing new. I’ve been writing poems off and on since the angst-filled days of my teenage years. In November of 2016, my muses became a bit more painful and powerful and my words no longer were about me, but to give voice to the fear, hurt, anger, and disappointment felt by those around me. I guess you could say my activist poet was born. “Cracking the Ceiling” and “I’m No Activist” were the first pieces I created using my new voice.
