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.

R.M. Drake’s Haunting Poetry

 

She was broken from moment to moment

575534

watching her world collide 

she felt lost inside herself.

11665100

She fell apart for a passion

that flamed beneath her.

She waited

and died a hundred times, 

it dripped from her pores.

The moment she let go,

she soared

over the stillness

like the star she was born to be.

I’m a fan of poetry.  Good poems teach me lessons in writing.  

A poet must be concise, descriptive, and emotional all in a few lines. 

 

That’s a pretty goddamn awesome skill to have. 

 

So . . . I’m always reading poetry. 

 

And Robert M. Drake has always had a luscious way with words.

or breathe under it?

How could I swim in darkness consumed in an ocean of you?

Falling or flying towards you.

Losing or finding myself in you

and beauty was never the word to catch all that you are,

for now i know

the means

never the word

to catch all that you are

for now i know the means

of the infinite

and it all starts and ends with you.

I definitely enjoyed the poetry! I found the author just from walking around Wynwood in Miami and seeing his poetry written on the sidewalks. Later, I googled him and found his books.

This one is definitely a keeper!! I give it FIVE STARS!!
