We love poetry by Dr. Patricia Williams Diaw

Saga of pain and woe

Song of despair

Solemn moods

Melancholy days go by

Wounds that will not heal

Bondage real

Longing and waiting

To be set free



Step away

Take a look

Learn the lesson

Face the truth

Release the pain

Resist the fear

Evoke the strength

Open your mind

You need not wait

The choice is yours

Love yourself
