Ororo Munroe
I can conjure snow as white as my eyes, as soft and vibrant as my flowing mane. I send down the rain on the maize, coffee. and cotton, to bring bounty to my kin. I burn bright and harsh as the sun or like lightning strikes, scorching land if I choose to. I am a daughter of Africa’s sweet Kenya; the presumed goddess of Cairo the defender of peace; the keeper of my ancestral pride and guard of many. I am revered as I fly on the winds as a weather-witch, and I proclaim to my sisters and my brothers: Harambee, so we may unite And pull together.

The Girl Speaks of Women
I’ve seen a woman: I’ve seen a woman with hurting eyes and the warmest smile       That gave me a preview into who I wanted to be— Strong and willful in the harshest of times. I’ve seen a woman: Who always fed an army of seven hectic little ones and herself. Whose stressed face inspired a 12-year old to hustle candy at school. Who whupped disrespectful youth; Who gave the confused clarification. Who cared for strangers in cold, white, secluded rooms. Who gave the perfect pep talk in those I-can’t-go-on-situations. Who was fruitless but more of a momma than actual birthers. Who gained superman-like strength to

Q
Questions: Is this what equality looks like?
If we are already equal, then why are there still people marching in the streets with “____ lives matter” signs just as there were people who marched in the sixties with “I am a man” signs?

Her Reality
As days go by, What’s weakened is my drive To lead my family out of darkness, To better—to survive. Day by day, I push past my limitations, Traveling in abandoned cities to feed my existing family. I am one year into teenhood With no father or mother, Providing for a ten year old and infant —My sister and my brother, Hiding from killers, Once welcomed in society, And joining the Resistance To reclaim what is ours—rightfully At night, we hide and rest;   During day, we fight till death Until another morning comes to see The corpses of the ones who fought the best Some are fathers, others mothers All different, bu

Collabing Poets: 7 Deadly Sins
I see the way your eyes gleam, when I appear, they're both on me. There is no need to be hesitant, I know my beauty is pleasant. Is it a taste of lips, or the feel of my hips? I tempt many, I am an absolute must. I am a lady of pleasure always making you lust. To me you were always lucky, you were always blessed with something. Whether it be family or gifts, or watched by gods that are supposedly myths. I know I wouldn't be missed, but for you the ignorance is bliss. Let's be honest you wouldn't miss me. I'm full of nothing but jealousy. If I was the one you had pitied, then I'm just a sad sack full of envy. Relaxed and in a daze, kick

Drugs: The Truth
They are my escape— Taking me away From the reality I don’t want to face From the pain I rather not feel From this life, This game, This long and awful race. With a few, deep inhales, They make feel alive— Even when I don’t want to be. They take me to another place Where I feel free, Where I can just be They help relax my family, too. Indirectly, like a chain reaction: I step out of my dark bedroom, Ma smiles. She sees I’m trying to interact with the world again. I stare back for a while. I feel warmth And ignore those tears I’ve lost the will to control. She doesn’t know why I leave the room;

Ro and Nathan 4
The morning sun found Ro sprawled on the ground of the enclosure, her mahogany hair spiked around her head. The lithe body readjusted itself on the hard ground, its owner trying to find a comfortable position and remain in the obliviousness of sleep. Of course the rising sun and packed earth conspired against her, drawing a heartfelt groan from her throat. Slowly, she raised her upper body, head drooping. Over the years, Ro had taught herself to be a morning person, but her first few moments in the waking world were always the hardest. Heaving herself to a sitting position, she blearily looked around, golden eyes blinking lazily. Her eyes foc

The Size of a Heart Ch1
   Skye was crouched low, watching the guard in his station. He was facing her, but hadn't the sense to look up from what he was doing to notice her watching him from the corner outside. She waited until he turned away to make her move. Silently, she crept around the station and down another hallway. Skye strained her ears and eyes through the dark corridor, trying to sense any dangers ahead. But as far as she could tell, she was alone. Soon she came to another guard station, but this one was empty. Over the Station was a floor map. Skye examined it and found where she needed to go: the elevator. It was the only way out. There were hardly any
