What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
A lot inspired me to write this book, but a specific time in my life was my main inspiration. I had just lost my two best friends, dropped out of school, and realized the nasty, nasty world I live in. I was so angry for months, with no way to channel this anger. All this anger was shooting out of my head, needing a page to land on. So, I started writing. I wrote the one evening for hours, while crying and listening to angry music. Then I realized, I could use the twenty poems I wrote that night, and make a collection of it. I thought it could be possible that I could publish a book full of my own angers that I know many can relate to, and perhaps have a reader saying "Hey, this is how I feel, I just couldn't word it!"
My inspiration was hoping to make someone else understand, and to help someone with their own anger.
you broke me
in so many ways
it will take forever to repair,
but i’ll get it done.
whatever it takes
to get you
out of my mind
i wear my pride on my chest
a smile on my face
a desire to be good
all for it to be shot down
by someone who is
the opposite of me
and a man
-women of colour
