***Please share in the comments what you do to spark faith in moments of doubt***"We will always be half-winged angels, imperfect and incapable of flight. My angel, jump anyway, dive everyday for the possibility of feeling the wind of greatness. across your face just once in this life" excerpt from my poem "For My Nephew on His 11th Birthday". These words remind me that I am and will always be imperfect and flawed, but should never stop striving for greatness. It is a message I originally wrote for my nephew but like most advice, it was easier given than taken. Whether it’s a social media post or a new poem, I often find myself letting the perfect get in the way of the good. In those moments I try to remember it’s not my job to convince people they should like me or my work, but rather to be the most authentic version of myself. It is through being honest, with and about myself, that I’ve been able to find my people. Please share in the comments what you do to spark faith in moments of doubt. (This might be one of the moments right now. I mean it. Please share, somebody out there needs to know what you have to say!) #spokenword #poetry #inspiration #motivation #family #love #growth #possibility #inspiration ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to all who celebrated John Lewis’s birthday with us. We engaged with the idea of “the beloved community” through music, art, and the written & spoken word. Thank you @josephlmsvoice for helping us show up fully for each other, & for connecting us to John Lewis’s legacy.
