***** CHAPTER ONE---
On a bright sunny day,
Akbar went outside to play.
He dribbled his ball through the doorway;
smiling all along the way.
He stopped by the steps to view
where his friends liked to sit/
He said, "I have some news,
and I want to tell you about it!
Akbar told them, "I came today
to tell you all that we'll be moving away!"
"To where," one friend asked Akbar.
Akbar replied, "I don't know but
Mama says... it is very far."
"My daddy's company is moving us all..
My dad is a scientist like George
Washington Carver...you may recall.
We read a book about
Benjamin Banneker & him.
My dad does work like them.
Another large group of buddies
to find out why Akbar
was planning to leave town.
"And my mom also had good fortune...
She's a writer who worked really hard...
& she may become famous soon.
And she won a book award.
The book that she wrote will be on sale--
and a check for us is
coming in the mail."
"Yes, my brother, it is all about money!"
"My man, is her book serious or funny?"
So Akbar explained--
"Her book is about strong women---
like Madame Walker, Harriet Tubman
and Shirley Chisholm..."
Suddenly there was a lot of noise
coming from Akbar's front door.
There was nothing but shock on the
faces of the boys...
as they watched two men loudly roar...

I also heard about you from Cynth'ya. I know about your Mom. I send you love and strength through prayer. And Cynth'ya is right: He doesn't make mistakes. I'm sure your mom is smiling right now.
I like your story verses very much. Not only are they good to read, but the're entertaining and educational. I very much liked the one called "Greed". Thank you, and be blessed.

I heard about you from Cynthia! I like your poetry, and I just want to say that I think this is great for young people. It allows them to capture the essence of both poetry and storytelling all at once. Congratulations on your accomplishments, and I wish you the best with future endeavors.
