Call me a poet if you'd like...I'm just humbled to have been blessed with this beautiful gift called lyricism.
'I admit to your general rule,
That every poet is a fool.
Though you yourself may serve to show it,
Every fool is not a poet' more »

Comments about Joi Alexander
Sweet Chocolate Berry
I am the sweetest hue of beauty,
The darkest shade of light.
Skin that was kissed by the sun in daytime
glistens underneath the moonlight.
I am the ripest, honeyed blackberry,
dripping early morning dew.
With the nectar passed down in ancestry
Pumping entirely and eternally through.
Chocolate, cocoa, mahogany brown baby
Raised up where ridicule and insecurities meet
Grown into proud and confident that surely don't give a damn
I talk when I walk, swinging my hips to a heartbeat.
That Berry black attitude lives in my soul,
Of that I'm sure you ...
