words evolve the soul

August 15, 2009

i am a poet child
of the ghetto
el barrio
las islas

my words are my gazette.

and all the news that’s fit to print
does not always make the headlines.

this is why i write
so that the untold stories may be read.

i write
to birth a memory
to bury a tragedy
to defend truth
to offend hatred

writing
distills love

my pen is my weapon
of mass reconstruction

words build hope
words mend
words restore

at the turn of each page
…words evolve the soul!
