“children/ when they ask you/ why your mama so funny/ say/ she is a poet/ she don't have no sense.”
- Lucille Sayles Clifton


This is the quote that I always reflect upon on when I start feeling that what I express in my poetry might be a little too "crazy". Expressing ourselves is a gift. We turn it on and turn it off when we want to and no one can ever take that away. Thank you for expressing yourself and sharing your profound written legacy - Lucille. Sayles. Clifton.
