For The Prose- Leona Harper’s Thoughts from the Underground

Written by on March 1, 2018

My thoughts run wild as I lay here thinking/ overthinking/ numbing/ regrouping/ rebuilding. It’s tough I know my mind is rough I have seen things I don’t speak of. Scars hold me that I tried to rub off, yet time seems to warm me that’s what I’m made of. Til too. Screaming won’t help silence won’t heal, all I ask is the Lord keeps me near. It’s the distance that I fear.

Calling me into darkness I have forgotten who I am, what I was, and where I began “you wasn’t raised like that” as you point your finga’ but I believe you don’t know me like [I] have seen plenty of triggas. Love is a hard subject when it’s rusted and not complex is something inside you still yearns for it. Life is living yet I feel Dead music will save me and I know that.

    Really amazing, lyrical and dense. Full of feeling.
    Has a nice rythym and flow.
    I love it!

    Leona, you have a true sense of your emotions and an even better talent for expressing them! All great artists reveal their pain and in turn help others feel less isolated. The talent you have doubles because it’s cathartic and hard to poetically to express unless you know who you are! Keep sharing your gifts!
