National Poetry Month: A few poems I love

I love writing so it only seems natural that I love poetry. I love the use of a language, rhythm schemes, metaphors- and how the words come alive and leave a lasting impression on my soul.

Below are a few poems that are dear to my heart.  Read, and watch a video, of a few poems I love by “wordogist” that I admire. There is also a poem by yours truly. Make sure to comment below and let me know your favorite poems.

Inspired by National Poetry Month I wrote the poem below:

Hammered by Toya From Harlem

Everyday, I try to put the hammer down

the LOUD and heavy one

that tries to nail in doubt

-And pull out confidence
