REST.IN.PEACE.IMANI

Location

I wanna take someone's soul out there heart and put it in mines

but no matter how hard I try to become someone different the reality is always permitted ...

I want to smile

but the more I covered my emotion I begin to bend

I bet u though I was the girl who always smile who looked at the beauty in things even when it was ugly. 

Make someone's day by just saying hi. 

But once Imani is gone who will be the sunshine on the rain.

Who will be there to lift others up

. Who will miss the Imani dance

The only thing I wanted was some compassion throw the people who care the  most

but there the ones with the knifes whose cutting me at the throat.

My friends are my family which are  always here but once I reach 1623 there no one near I mean you text me

and I love that

but that not enough having you in front of me which brings me good luck.

Some of you knew about the Imani no one really sees but once you look at my smile who do you really see.

Listen to my voice I'm not mad at none of y'all who text me here .

you even picking up your phone brings me enough cheer imma be honest with you because the truth take you far

I wanted to die tonight I guess you saying I'm taking it far .

.I though of y'all seeing  the hurt and that pain .The pain I feel inside which I really don't wanna bring to each and everyone of your lives ..

you thinking that it was all your fault maybe if I did that then maybe I wouldn't be cold beneath some grass which lies underneath me ....

which my smile lies dying as you can see ..

no one sees me cry or knows what really goes on I keep it all inside so no one can see the whams I tried so hard to cover up .

this is the imani hopeful you like it good luck .yeah all this rhyme in some way I forgot to mention

I'm a poet hay hay hay ..hopeful you can hear my voice which display in this black and  white I love you all an sweet dream goodnight i hope i didn't ruin your night

This poem i wrote to my friends when i was having a major break down i decided to share it with power poetry because this is the imani i hold inside only killing the imani that i want to be . I have nothing to turn to so i push everyone away and i have the gift to help others but sometimes nobody can help me .

Just like one of my poems I did, I believe it's Dear God but I have so many i can't really remember which one though. Yet I feel the pain you felt as well and I am the same, I would help others before I helped myself but i never really wanted anyone to know I was hurt or in a bad place. I always tried to be some hero for everyone, that if I took my mind off what was really happening it would disappear; not exactly but in other words it kinda did.

Yes that's how I feel everyday of my life sometimes I get so emotional that I lose all the good parts of me. And people don't understand because they don't take the time to understand. Thank you so much for listening to my voice

It was a pleasure to listen to the knowledge you speak so fondly of and you version of your inspiration.

i understood your voice imani

that's why it's powerful-if i were to write poetry when i was a teenager, made better choices

never help others unless you help yourself

as i read, you were very emotionally driven and sincere

this is honesty as its purest

poetry became your craft, i hope this poem begins the healing process of discovering you

you have the gift, all you have to do is open it

keep writing

I had such a bad day that MVP you were the outlet to making me overcome what's hurting me inside. And I thank because nobody really listen and feel that I have cover everything up to point I wanna cry. And you were person that smile think MVP care so Imani don't give up

i would never give up on you as long as you don't give up on yourself

I was good at cover up the things that I didnt want people to see, but little by little I was pushing people away. It's not who you know but who you have to get you through the day. I'll be there for you too, I've had to many evil people in my life tell me what I couldn't do and so few who told me I would become what I said I would. Those few out weighted the millions of things I wish people didn't say than than the 100 of words it took to tell me that I was better than that. It only takes that one person to start a movement and MVP started it and I'm going to contuine it. As long as you don't give up on you, I wouldn't give up on you. It's like that expression people say, "it takes a villege to rise a child."
