They fed me belly-full,

And sent me to bed

With an empty heart 

And a starved soul

And told themselves

What great parents they were

But they fed me.

And starved my soul.

They planted my rage,

And righteously questioned why

I was not like the rest…

My soul hungered for love,

Yet my belly hungered not.

Excerpt from My Upcoming Book Of Poems, "My Black Soul Dirges"
