Is this thing on???

It’s taken me a while to get here. I haven’t been ready to face the page. Somewhere between my mother’s death and my greatest success, I lost my voice. The words left me. Writing became a chore. I decided to focus on love. And then love left me. I tried to focus on my career. And then the job left me. But here I am. Still standing. Still here. Still black. Still woman. Still Sheri. Still poet. Still writer. Still lover. Still Mary’s daughter. I survived it all.

Rock with me as I take it from the top…
