Book can be purchased by clicking: Silence Is Not Always Golden: A Poetic Revolution
Silence Is Not Always Golden is a collection of poetry that is defying the norm. The title was inspired by the Black Panther Party’s Huey Newton’s quote, “You can jail a Revolutionary, but you can’t jail the Revolution.” Instead of writing what people wanted to hear, I wrote what people needed to hear. The truth! Sometimes, the truth can be beautiful and sometimes, it can be ugly. My word and my voice are my weapons and I have to speak up on my beliefs. Other people may not feel as powerful to speak up, so I speak up for them. I could not site there and not say anything. I was taught that you cannot do what everyone else want; you have to do what YOU want. To be YOU is as original as there can be and people will try to put you down because you are different. I say try because on you can let them. There is more to life than making a living and surviving. You must fulfill your purpose by pursuing your dreams because if you do not, life will pass you by. My words are my way of fulfilling my purpose because I am making my dreams a reality and I am showing that you can do the same.
