- For the 3rd year in a row, I had the distinct pleasure of conducting a workshop for a group of young men at youth automotive training center. The guys in the group are between the ages of 16-21 and come from all walks of life, though many have been through the juvenile justice system or had been headed down the wrong path. Each year that I come in, they have. I idea what to expect. They're used to learning about brake pads and spark plugs, and her a this dude talking about poetry. It always starts out slow; they're mad reticent in the beginning. But eventually, they began to open up. The "lesson", is though t was more just a discussion, dealt with identity. We talked about what groups they identify with and those labels that jay they often have to defy. It was amazing to see them spend twenty minutes writing their stories in verse. Stories that a probably rarely shared with others, but were all important and powerful in their own right. Only a few of them shared, but that was more than enough. Maybe one day they can show me how to change my oil. In these moments, I love what I do. #poetry #poet #poets #educator #education #artseducation #mechanic

- I first came across Fences in high school. I didn't realize it then, but reading August Wilson's words had a profound impact on this writer-to-be. Who knows how @fencesmovie will fare in the #oscars tonight. Even with powerful performances by @violadavis and Denzel, it should win something. Nevertheless, it will go down as one of the most important and well-written plays EVER (in my humble opinion) I suggest any aspiring writers pick it up and treat it as part of your study. #playwright #writer #fences #fencesmovie #writer #theatre #drama #denzelwashington #violadavis #augustwilson

- I converse with the dark She speaks to me through winds and waves and a dying star's glare. And I am there - listening as she whispers of my strength but reminds me of my insignificance. So, it is less a conversation, More so a lesson. And with each breath of cold, ocean air; Each constellation I attempt to trace with my eyes; Each sway of which I have no control, I learn that I am almost nothing and I am everything. #poet #poetry #poets #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #ocean
