Liberated by Verse
"The story that I thought
was my life
didn’t start on the day
I was born
The story that I think
will be my life
These words in verse are written by one liberated or shall I say, exonerated,
one of five, speaking in lines of rhyme, pattern and vibe with Ibi Zoboi.
The book offering for the day is : Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam discussing what was to be considered a terrible crime of it's time, instead became a journey into
uncovering the truth, exposing the horrors of what should have been the past, and embracing humanity to live life fluidly.
