A provocative meditation on poverty, art, sex, & God.

Hungry is a collection of poetry, prose, and illustrations about a struggling writer’s battle with poverty and motherhood, her exploration of lust in this digital dating age, and her quest to end soul starvation.

 

Dear Reader

This is my journey through words
when the screams and fighting
wasn’t enough

 

I wrote this
when he broke my heart

I wrote this
when I couldn’t pay my bills

I wrote this high as hell

I wrote this
when we had no place to sleep
and nothing to eat

I wrote this
when I couldn’t say
the words out loud

I wrote this
for you
to learn
from my mistakes
and make new ones

 

And so
this journal
these entries
these moments and poems
should be free
because I can’t sell you my heart

That’s what you’re getting
when you read this book

 

But
this book
is also
about the grind

The struggle

There’s no skating in this book
There’s no quick win in this book

Just a sista ready to die for words

Ready to hurt
Ready to starve
Ready to cry
Ready to sacrifice it all
Ready to go broke
Go hungry

NEW WEBSITE: Write Like a Mutha!

Write Like a Mutha

Write Like a Mutha came from scouring the internet for other moms who balanced motherhood with writing. I wanted to know how they did it and how I could help others do the same thing. I know there’s a myriad of ways to mother as well as write and I’m interested in hearing about all the ways that motherhood and writing converge.

About Me

Hi, my name is Kenesha and I’m a writer and a mom, probably a bit like you. Struggling to find the time to balance motherhood and writing, but fiercely invested in both. Since 2015 I’ve been the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of a speculative fiction literary magazine that centers Black women as main characters. I’ve also been an indie writer since 2013 with various works published under my own name and a few pen names as well.
