I had wrote this poem as apart of Miss Jamela’s Class called Purpose of Power. This was a long process took about four days to complete this poem.

 

Who is Nyleve?

I am from the Twins
Of Minnesota
St. Paul to Minneapolis
Where the Wild play
To the Grand Ole Days
Pride Parades are our
Past time
The land of 10, 000 lakes
State Fair be popping
And Valley Fair is our playground…

I am a woman
Who was asleep
But
I am now awaken in
My spiritual awaking
My journey started in 2012
Has been rough
But life was never meant
To be easy…

I am a
Mother
Poet
Writer
Provider
I am a
Woman who stood tall
In the darkest times
I am a woman who
Graduated from h.s
When my own
Birthmother told me
I couldn’t…

I am
A
Trail blazer
I am
Building my
Legacy
The foundation
For which my son
&
Feature kids can
Learn & grow from…

I am teaching
People. Yes! My
Scar
Is apart of me
But
It does not define me!
Teaching people
You can Survive
Anything that
Life
Throws at you…

I am a
Parent
Who
Is proud of
My son
Who
loves my son
Who chose
My son
Over a brain tumor
Who put her son
Above all else…

I am
A parent who
Grew up quickly
I am
A
GERMAN-AFRO-AMERICAN
Woman
Who loves to write
Poetry
I am a
Survivor of all things
Life has thrown at me
I am
A
Born again
Christian
Who speaks to all
Through
Spoken word poetry
And most of all….

I am
Me!
