In the poet’s own words: “A collection of Poetry! I share my life experiences through my poetry. The collection of poetry is a journey that I have been writing over the years. Love, relationships, sex, and everyday problems that go on in the average black woman’s life. My story is just put in poetry form.”
Good morning, Lamecca! I’m grateful to be speaking with you on this wonderful day. Thanks for being here. What inspired the creation of your book?
My inspiration for this book was the fact that I self-published my first poetry while homeless. I wanted to keep the momentum going.
That’s amazing. I can’t imagine the hardship you must have faced, so the fact that you pushed forward regardless is proof of your personal power and the power of poetry to guide you out of difficult times. When did your love of writing come about?
I began writing as a little girl. It was my best form of expression.
Poetry is definitely a great tool to authentically express oneself. What is the central message you’re attempting to put into the world through this collection of poems?
My message that I’m striving to convey is that I have been through more than most can fathom, so if I can do it, anyone can do it.
How empowering! I admire your can-do attitude. So, what gets your creative juices flowing when sitting down to write?
I literally base my poetry off of emotion. I write from my personal experience or the emphatic view from afar.
I have been through more than most can fathom, so if I can do it, anyone can do it.
Emotion (any emotion, really) and experience (both good and bad) are the muses of all muses. Thank you again for taking some time out of your day to have this lovely chat. 💛
