A Sojourn Back Home: A Collection of Poems
My 2019 was the world’s 2020. Everything fell apart. I lost one of my most valuable friendships, I lost my last living grandparent, I left a job after nearly a decade and lastly, I lost a nearly three- year relationship I was certain would lead to marriage and more children. After all these losses in six short months, there was nothing left of the life I had been living. There was nothing else to do, nowhere else to go, except Home….and so I took a sojourn back home.
This collection of thirty poems is the manifestation of that sojourn. The raw searing truth of a life I no longer recognized. Pieces such as Welcome Home, Slave Mother, and Top Dolla Hoe reveal hidden truths and buried treasures of who I am at the core; a brutally soft woman, in search of the deepest love life has to offer.
