    Thank you, Tahtyanna! I try to capture the essence of whatever emotion or subject that I write about. I've also read your books on Amazon. Very insightful. Keep on doing what you do! I'm proud of you!

    tots adore this author, she so real and raw and her poems put you in your feelings real quick. Its like your actually experiencing what is written vividly though its through words. All her poems make me feel like im actually living it.

Best Poem of Joy Milton

Why I Don't Celebrate Independence Day

I don't
Independence Day
The parades
The Flags
The soda Pop
Mean nothing
To me
Because on this day
My ancestors
A Nation
Within a nation
Chains upon
The Melanin
We were
To be
Our blood
And tears
Fell into the laps
Of the White Americans
While we were
Gasping for air
To breathe
Something other than Tobacco
or Cotton
We BUILT your America
White thrive
Bcause Black
Fought hard
To Survive
And we still are not free
We are enslaved ...
