  • Thank you soooooo much! I was worried the repetition didn’t flow, so I definitely appreciate the feedback!

  • Reena Doss and Avatardvnmskm are now friends 5 months ago

  • If I March for justice

    That makes me nothing less than human

    If I demand the police beheld accountable

    I am nothing more than human

    If I bang on doors and ask all my neighbors to sign the petition

    I […]

  • dvnmskm wrote a new post, Over it 5 months ago

    I’m over it

    Not writing

    But performance

    I feel alone

    Like no place is home.

    I’m tired

    And I just don’t know

    If I can mass produce

    The energy it takes

    To maintain this smile upon my […]

  • What hours are we in?

    I don’t know

    I’ve just finished a street party

    And perhaps the drink was just a little too plenty

    I’m just kidding- I don’t partake in the drink

    So what other excuse could I […]

  • I’m just another poet

    There’s nothing special about my voice or the words that my vocal chords produce

    I’m just another person whose passion has been overturned

    It spills over and covers the ground

    I’m […]

  • Some need new digs

    To feel good

    Or hit the town.

    As for me, I just need to throw on a wig

    Add a lil rouge

    A small helping of Unxle Scrooge’s loot

    And I’ll be ready to hit the town in my favorite […]

    • This offers the promise of what is to come. The poet is so free and easy! She needs little to make her happy. It makes the reader want to peek in and see that wig on her head and my goodness, what color are those dancing boots? Fun to come! Nice.

    Will just have to wait

    Til it pleaaes theĀ  fates.

    I won’t give up
    I’ve never been a quitter

    If you ask my mother thinking thoughts like that are surely a sin

    We will all win

    So long as we keep pushing until the end

    But just right now, a nap would be […]

  • I like this one! Great job! Wonder if this was written about a recent exor a long ago one…

    In this 5th hour

    I feel the need to say

    I am a black woman

    With black children

    Who matter to me.

    In this, the 5th hour…

    It is important that you see

    My black family is just as important as […]

  • 1 a swing
    2 oil

    3 a man or a woman or two or three of each

    4 candles

    5 a house to one’s self, with absolutely zero kids running about

    This is the place for which one could jump off

    For an afternoon […]

  • dvnmskm wrote a new post, Three Hours In 5 months ago

    It is the 3rd Hour

    The sun is shining

    And I am already talking to myself about powering through

    It isn’t that I don’t want to finish this great race

    But really, I’d rather be out and about having the […]

  • Patrick Henry said give me liberty or give me death

    Harriot Tubman said she would shoot anyone who made a sound or dared turn around

    There is a price to be paid to be free.

    I do not know who said […]

    • Wow! Powerful poem! Thank you for sharing. ‘The sound drowned out by the incessant noise of the same old wheel’ is incredibly strong, as is your repeating line: ‘there is a price to be paid to be free’.

      • Thank you soooooo much! I was worried the repetition didn’t flow, so I definitely appreciate the feedback!

    My eyes are still groggy looking

    And my head is promising that today is probably gonna be a foggy one.

    Ooh, the joys of post traumatic head injury migraine.

    I had a perfect plan and good intentions […]

  • dvnmskm wrote a new post, Intro… 5 months ago

    Hey everyone! Gah. It is a little more than 5 hours before the marathon starts and I’m wide awake….

    And… I’ve only just realized, I have neither created an introduction post or joined the Facebook […]

    Nice! This sentiment was all to familiar to me…

    I officially made it, as I only signed up for the half marathon. I was trying to push myself to do the whole. I didn’t succeed as I fell asleep very shortly after posting this one. How did you fare? I hope you were successful!

  • My brain is mush

    Muddled with thoughts of yesterday and the tomorrow that hasn’t quite made it to the day’s rays of sunlight .

    My mind is clouded with sleep- the cobwebs outstretched their tentacles and I […]

    • Solidarity. I’m with you. I thought I would get a second wind by now, but I’m running out of steam too. You’re still doing good though.

  • I am done.
    I think this marathon has one.

    I accomplished what I set out to do

    12 hours of poetry

    In that I have succeeded

    Soon, I will be fast asleep

    Maybe i will wake early and play catch up […]
