Bare represents the gamut of my existence and accomplishments which would not have otherwise come to fruition absent challenges that I faced. Writing is beneficial and helps me to strike a balance between daily activities and my inner self. It provides calm during raging storms which seem to be endless. Among them is sexual abuse and single parenting. Add to this equation caretaker for aging and terminally ill parents twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. Having been assaulted, raped, and physically beaten to take away my will in this century was both devastating and alarming. This web of collusion caused me to constantly seek intricate and flexible solutions to combat underemployment and isolation. Lines like fluent fountains continue to flow and finally there are so many verses that I was asked to publish them. My perspective reflects the struggle against an unforgiving systematic sociological structure which needs revision. Resolute to triumph, I conquer ignorance through both the word of God and academic subjects. My prayer for America is that in the present moment, our leadership will be more inclusive of opportunities for women, especially black women. The environmental forces and circumstances surrounding our success is different. Change for the betterment of the nation and revisit the way employers treat and view all older workers.
