2: I am from a single mother's love, From hard times to extraordinary times. I’m from fast-talkers and Red Velvet Cake, Which I remember made me feel good on a bad day. I am from blue skies and the strong- minded From Yes Mam and No Mam To Yes Sir and No Sir From the place where MLK JR crossed the bridge himself. From the goofiness and ha-ha’s I am from the Honeysuckle and Rose Gardens, bees buzzing and birds humming From yearly gatherings on Thanksgiving, good hair and Christians From Moppins’ and Roberson’s, -two opposite sides have mixed From Fun-Loving and Competitors I am from where the sun always shines, daughter of Sabrina Linette From the smell of fresh-cut grass on Water Avenue From the high shelf in my closet-cluttered with Albums and Scrapbooks Filled with deserted memories and faded pasts- worth more than Rubies and Diamonds That is where I’m from, That’s Me. | I Love You | Where I'm From | Where I'm From

4: Walking in my mother’s kitchen The smell so sweet and bold Thinking I have to clean the dishes But “No” is what I was told Seeing her stand beside the oven Slicing up the collards Grab the eggs by the dozen “In the fridge!”, my sister hollered Cleaned the chicken in the sink No longer alive but lifelessly dead Snagged some bread and a sausage link A sandwich is what I had Staring at the yellow walls Saw Miss Bertha breeze by fast Noticed I wasn’t helping at all Thanksgiving Dinner would soon have pass Jumped up swiftly and got in the mix The room so heated and hot Although the nice day left real quick The memory of my Mother’s Kitchen is what I got. | My Mother's Kitchen Poem

5: My Mother's Kitchen

6: I will love you forever -Sabrina (mommy)

7: From My Mother Poem You see darling, I’ll tell you this: Every day is a learning experience I want you to travel the world And go to college Take advantage of good opportunities Because I’ve learned that there are only a handful of chances Sometimes it’s not what you know But who you know.Diversify Don’t be afraid to leave your castle Enjoy your youth..Don’t let your life flash by Choose your friends wisely They too can be the ones to pull the wool over your peepers. If you can--own your own business Be the natural born leader that I know you are Save for a rainy day Ignorance isn’t bliss my child Take this guidance my love Take it and fly away with it Because I’ve listened to my mama Now it’s your turnGone Girl, Do ya’ Thang!

9: Oh GSMST, Why must you pressure grades and perfection Will the world destruct if I presented a B Is there no type of satisfaction Why is it that I can’t see my own true Destiny This school, built on the foundation of our future Is it here to torture our minds No, I think it’s here to guide us and show us a new culture Am I sureYes it’s fine Oh GSMST, You shine down your light To show us that our upcoming is near We will no longer fight because our future is bright We will be alright, everything is clear We love you GSMST You gave us everything we need Our future goals will proceed There is no doubt that we’ll succeed Thank you Gwinnett School of Math, Science and Technology This school, so unpredictable The best teachers, so untouchable The students like no other, so indefinable “If we Can’t do it, it can’t be done”Unstoppable “We are GSMST”Unbreakable

10: Quotes, Anecdote, adjectives, nouns This terminology is not as tough as they sound Just pick up the Webster’s book And take a long look The definitions are what should be found Pencils, highlighters and pens To write a story or an epic poem-it depends Just pick up your case Or special place And grab your writing friends Paragraphs, stanzas, and lines These separate pieces of writing of some kind Just get a notebook And take hold of an outlook You will notice your organization is just fine Capitalization and Punctuation You need this part to create a writing sensation The use of good grammar With a little manner Will definitely show people inspiration Speeches, recitals, and story time Language arts class is quite divine The dismissal bell rings Your stomach cringes Because math class is next in line.

12: (Verse 1) Never have you seen in ya lifetime A A more divine southern rapper with a swag like mine A Facin all kinda time but smile like I'm fine A Brag with such passion and shine without tryin A Believe me, pains a small thing to a giant A I was born without a dime A Out the gutter I climbed A spoke my mind and didn't stutter one time A Ali said "even the greatest gotta suffer sometimes" A So I huff and puff rhymes A Lyrics so sick wit it B Set the standard in Atlanta how to get get get it B So you up and coming rappers wanna diss, just kill it B I'm officially the realest...point, blank, period B Whether I still live in the hood or just visit B Whatever you can do in the hood I done did it B That's why the dope boys and the misfits feel it B This still his city long as TIP living, listen B (Hook) I ain't dead (nah) I ain't done(nah) I ain't scared(of what?), I ain't run(from Who?) But still I stand (yeah) No matter what pimpin here I am(Yeah) No matter What Remember I ain't break(never), I ain't fold(never) They hate me more(so?) Yeah I know(Ha, Ha) Here I go(Yeah) No matter what shawty, here I go No matter what shawty | (Verse 2) Let the blog sites and the magazines tell it B I'm sure to be in jail till 2027 B Rather see me in the cell then C Instead of this new McLaren C God will take you through hell, just to get you to heaven C So even tho it's heavy, the load I will carry it B Grin and still bear it, win and still share it B Apologies to the fans, I hope you can understand it B Life can change ya direction, even when you ain't planned it B All you can do it handle it, worst thing you can do is panic B Use it to your advantage, avoid insanity manage B To conquer, every obstacle, make impossible possible D Even when winning illogical, losing still far from optional D And, Yea they wanna see you shot up in the hospital D But, when life throw punches, block and counter like a boxer do D Been locked inside mi casa too long, I did a song E To make it known that the king lives on (pimpin) E (Hook) I ain't dead (nah) I ain't done(nah) I ain't scared(of what?), I ain't run(from Who?)

14: Connotation Friends Means sharing, bittersweet A brand name of love. It is a tie for all time, Longer than the shadows we forget Yet shorter and better than life, or for some longer, Stronger. It balances you, with a pole in One hand and a rope in the other, you choose what to use it for. It is forever. Friends Remembers everything anyone ever felt, Holds it in a cubbyhole somewhere for next time When it is spoken or thought, from kindergarten Elation to maturing despair. No friend is ever Alone in action or reaction, left Without a silent commiserating presence of Invisible brick, a personal wailing wall For those who need its strength And stability. Friends Is a loaded word and pointed. It limbos out from Under walls, vaults barricades, threads mazes To erect cellophane boundaries of its own. It lets you see what could lie beyond But that you gave up When you spoke its name. Copyright © 1996 by Katherine Foreman.
