A poetry reading of the title poem from my 2020 book, “When I Stopped Remembering Tomorrow.”
Sharing a poem I wrote while playing around with basketball and space terms in December 2021.
An after poem inspired by Amanda Baker. Going back to my childhood and 20s, I wrote from a place of remembering and forgiveness.
I started reflecting upon what I’d say to my younger self. This post is the result.
An after I wrote based upon a poem from Amanda Baker.
A video with me reading “Standing On My Tippy Toes” from “When I Stopped Remembering Tomorrow”, which I published in 2020.
Another poem from the archives. This one takes us back to my teens. I was in a girls’ home when I wrote this one back in the last 90s and my mindset is clearly one of someone who has given up. For some, there may need to be a trigger warning, as this is a bit dark. It’s asking questions that come into teen minds more than we like to admit.
Originally a blog post I wrote in 2016, “See Me” became my first spoken word poem and one of my favorite pieces from “When I Stopped Remembering Tomorrow” my poetry and reflection book about not scripting life. It’s long and it’s a wild trip inside my life, but if you allow it to speak to you, my pain and healing can become your freedom too.
An “After” of Colin Tan’s “Reflection” poem.
A poem from the archives of my notebooks.
