Best Poem of Monica Lanier

I'D Rather Be

I'd rather be
One with a rebellious mind
Entwined in a poets rhyme
Going back and forth in time
Nestling between the notebook lines

Big Mama

Big mama sings out loud and out of tune.
"Has anyone seen my walking shoes."
Them shoes have been with me when I had nothing to eat.
No roof over my head my home was on the streets.
Them shoes helped me when life was unkind.
Kept me going when I almost lost my mind.
Them shoes are a reminder of where I have been.
So I look at each day as a beginning and not the end.
Them shoes will carry me to a day I will see.
