Naked Expressions is a Poetry Collection. In this collection, I get transparent, bare my soul about growing up around poverty, the grips of a crack-cocaine pandemic, everyday family life in the ’hood, the struggles and hardships of becoming an unwed teenage mother, and so much more. Throughout the pages of Naked Expressions, I express my innermost thoughts and feelings about the all-too-common struggles that young people of color face. All the while, I hope to send a message of great faith, great strength and great pride in and through our greatest trials and our worst mishaps

Excerpt

The hood didn't take me under...

The hood didn't take me under...

When I was sixteen years old

Lost in the big world

'Knowing it all'

But, really knowing nothing at all

Nothing more than hood life; urban sprawl

The hood didn't take me under...

When I was sixteen years old

Seed in my womb

Headed for eternal poverty, food stamps, welfare checks

Hoping, praying to get accepted in a government funded; housing complex.......

IN ANOTHER POEM LENA (TRANSPARENCY) SPEAKS OF WITNESSING A CRACK COCAINE PANDEMIC...

I SAW CRACK...

Take once beautiful curvaceous black-women and turn them into figures that looked like images of the living-dead

Walking up and down the street…Flip-Flops on, dirty feet, hair scattered all over their head.....................
