To The Poets
There’s a long list of those who encouraged me to write,
You, poets who inspired me, I have kept you in my sight.
Yes, I love your words and I will keep my eyes on you.
It began with Langston Hughes, Edgar Guest and Maya Angelou!
It is you who encouraged me to push on with all my might
And you who have inspired me to continue to write!
So here’s to all of the poets that have led the way:
… William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Gwendolyn Brooks, Elizabeth Barrett-Browning, Nikki Giovanni, Antowne Fisher, Felecia Scott
And for those of you who still have lots to say:
...Diane, Sabrina, William, Godwin, Hillary, Warren, Allison, Tamika,Chuenee, Alicia, Shireen, Gloria, Joi, Jeffrey, Leslie, Sharon, Shawn…
Write on, sisters and brothers!
Write on to encourage others!
Write for what’s in you, others have to hear
Write, for you know you have a lot to share!
Write for in you lies a treasure chest.
Write the rest!
Write the best!
Write! Write! Write!
Don’t let those words die!
Write, Poets, Write!
