“There’s no greater agony than bearing an untold story within you.”
For those who wonder what I do these days at home in between my editing assignments, literary translation, blog writing gigs, online content development and preparation for upcoming workshops on writing, or most aptly, for those who care, I also stare at blank walls and the psychotic bouts of my memories and imagination propel me to craft poetry and fiction sometimes, poetry and stories that are raw and unsettling, still very much a part of my inner conscience. And yes, I sometimes read these poems amid audience in open or close public spaces, and try to find meaning and resonance of these words through the process of connecting with them.
In the beginning of March, the #womenshistorymonth, I have been proud and privileged to be a part of three important events in the heart of Dallas.
It was my honor and privilege reading excerpts from my poetry and introducing my recently published books at Power 214 Radio Station, Dallas, at the show titled ‘The Wake Up Crew’ hosted by Lula Ellis and Vaniesha Moore, two powerful ladies ❤️
You will get to listen to the full show here:
The recordings are also there on Facebook live,

I was a featured poet there on March 2, 2019, Saturday morning along with Kendall E. Reaves, as a prequel to tomorrow’s poetry & Spoken words event Sunday Evening Soul in Arlington, Tx.
I Want to Hear You Sistah: As a featured poet at the longest running all-female spokenwords show in USA, hosted by Brenda Randall, the amazing and firebrand TV host, Event Coordinator, Producer and poet.
Sunday Evening Soul: As a featured poet and artist at this deeply rooted and elemental poetry and Spokenwords show at Arlington, Texas, where I read out my piece on the menaces of female foeticide.
