Word Warrior

by Yolanda Shabazz

		Word Warrior
			Making me know
		About things I sometimes
			Choose to forego

		Birth to Death
			And whateverís in between
		Donít always see
			Canít escape what you mean.

		Acting Out 
			Or turning a phrase
		You make your point
			In unlimited ways. 

		Words So Sweet
			Take me back to the beginning
		The same cut like a knife
			When you relate struggle with no ending.

		Hard as a Rock
			Sensitivity you canít hide
		For this artistic condition
			You meticulously guide.
