Let’s Be Better Humans

Figments of one’s mind

Viewing life in black and white

Creates suffering



No breaths to give, facing asphalt

Intricate scars with wounds so deep

Cries of the unjust scared to sleep

Flashbacks, memories of assault

Holding your pedigree at fault

Born a victim life holds you down

Melanin poppin, skin so brown

Taught to stay high when they go low

Hold your head up, don’t break your flow

Stand, be proud and center your crown


©️2020 CSNelson, Don’t Forget the Half

Inspired by: Décima Poetry Challenge (sleep on B line); Three Things Challenge #426 (intricate, unjust, center); Ragtag Daily Prompt (crown); Daily Word Prompt (fault); Word of the Day (figment); Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge (life & view)

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
