Nikki Giovanni - Think

"I didn't have a child to be canon fodder"
 
 
I've started writing more poetry lately and I do a bit a research every now and again for inspiration. This time I just went on Youtube and searched some of my favorite poets' works…Last week I performed an original poem entitled "Woman" and the coordinator loved it saying that it reminded him of Nikki Giovanni and gave me a printout of "Ego Tripping (there may be a reason why)". Although I was familiar with her name and reputation, I wasn't very familiar with her work so I added her to my Youtube search.
 
I came across this: THINK
 
It was just so powerful….and the story about the man and his door for the exhibit…wow. So I wanted to share it with all of you :)
