I used to be heckled by Sorie after I came out with my poetry book, “Raindrops of Life.” He would say, ” Ay, Mandi when is part II coming out ?” That had to be around February, February 15, 2006 to be exact. I was giving two readings at the Robeson Art Gallery at Rutgers University, it was my sophomore year. I had this new awakening spirit about life and wanted to just grab it by the horns. My last poem was, “Defining Woman.” It was a poem dedicated to my mother who was battling breast cancer. It was one of the most therapeutic things I had ever done. Writing was always my first love. My mother encouraged it! As a child, every time I would go out with my mother, I always came back with 1-2 books. It fed my active imagination and soon translated into literary work.
I am going back to basics.
Yes, I am.
What are some things you wish you could do again? I say, go on and do it. Don’t wait!
