Poetry: Her

Out of the Sandbox

Poetry and Photograph by Ti’Anna Davis


She’s the type of person to have sleepless nights filled with loud thoughts,


She pours her heart out to those who don’t understand, can’t understand, unable to understand.

Where there is love, there are risks that she is willing to take

Because she is strong,

Because she is determined,

What is help?

Personally, she hates it

Despises it,

Refuses it,

If she could go through life without it, —she would do it

When they see her doing well, they try to bring her down, but she’s quicker than that.

1:21 AM, She sits writing about herself, but she can’t understand who she is just yet…

1:22, seems like time is going by so slow

2:00 AM, She figures she doesn’t know who she is

So much room to grow, to learn, to develop

So many questions still unanswered.
