I wrote a contest specific poem and it will be contributed towards the ‘Why Poetry Matters’ Realistic Poetry Book Anthology. You can order your copy today at http://www.realisticpoetry.com/poetry-blog/why-poetry-matters-poet-author-list.
Here’s an excerpt of my poem:
“Without poetry, I wouldn’t have exercised my mind or even played with my imagination like griots did in West Africa, which were my ancestors. So as you, the reader, can see poetry has always and forever mattered to me. It’s part of my ancestry and legacy.”
